Assault on America, Day 436: Questions debate moderators should ask Bernie & Joe on Sunday

With the Democrat presidential race all-but over, Sunday’s “debate” is bound to feel anti-climactic and like a waste of time. Perhaps the only yet to be determined matter is whether Biden can keep his wits together for two hours -- and whether Bernie finally takes off the gloves regarding Joe’s massive corruption deficit.

Trump: the First Black President

Jack Brewer, Townhall

I was an invitee of President Trump, in the West Wing to celebrate a brighter future for black communities that finally have the opportunities long promised to us by Democrats. For that, I and other great Americans — including Dr. Alveda King, Terrence K. Williams, Stacy Washington, David Harris, Jr., Pastor Darrell Scott, Deneen Borrelli, Paris Dennard, and Diamond and Silk — were called “Uncle Toms.” We will bear the slings and arrows cast at us by those who fear free and independent thought in Black Americans. We will continue fighting for the oppressed, the poor, and the forgotten. I wonder how many of those who have smeared us over the last week can say the same.

Blaming Trump for the 'Wuhan Virus'

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

We do know there is a governmental biological laboratory in Wuhan experimenting with viruses, including those of the corona class. The Chinese are telling the world to stop calling it the Wuhan Virus and are absurdly demanding an apology from the West for doing so. This is because the name reminds humanity that the biological catastrophe comes from a nation that has no one’s best interest in mind. In this age of being concerned about an intervention in our country by foreign interests, it’s astounding certain media (MSNBC host Chris Hayes and CNN) would move a message that is the preferred narrative of the Chinese government. Why that would not raise a … red flag for them is perplexing.

Assault on America, Day 435: Coronavirus will neither help nor hinder Trump’s reelection drive

Coronavirus is a serious matter and President Trump is giving it its due consideration. Life must go on and Trump’s reaction to the fears of normal people is in line with what any leader should do. If the president went around acting scared, it would only make things worse. Be thankful for competent political leadership at times like these.

How Far Should Trump’s Coronavirus Economic Stimulus Go?

The coronavirus economic panic defies conventional arguments about moral hazard and other arguments against intervention in the economy that were raised during the 2008 Great Recession. We are interested to know and share what conservatives think about the possible coronavirus economic stimulus package – please tell us what you think in the comments section at the end of this article.

Assault on America, Day 434: To Democrats, everything and nothing sounds good at one time

Regardless of the reasons, Democrats are pretty much stuck with Joe Biden -- and all that comes with him -- for their party nominee. The 2020 field’s women candidates didn’t lose because of their gender; they lost because they weren’t good choices and the establishment first sought to take care of their own.

CPAC and Coronavirus

If you attended CPAC we urge you to follow the advice of Matt Schlapp and call your doctor if you have an elevated temperature, and everyone will benefit by following the sensible coronavirus prevention advice of molecular virologist Dr. James Robb as outlined in this article.

Assault on America, Day 433: Biden momentum surge destined to drown in sea of hypocrisy

The past couple weeks demonstrated how quickly things change in the world of politics and how voter attitudes often shift without explanation. One thing that will likely remain the same is President Trump’s hold on the loyalty of conservatives and Republicans. Democrats can’t match it, regardless of who wins their nomination.

Primaries show Trump GOP strength

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The Democratic Super Tuesday primaries made all the news, but many states had Republican primaries, too. The results of those contests suggest President Trump is in an extraordinarily strong position with GOP voters. His campaign believes the turnout also indicates that the president's strength extends beyond Republicans to independents, as well. Winning a higher percentage of the Texas primary vote than a former Texas governor indicates Trump's power in the party. And having such a large number of Republican votes in essentially meaningless GOP primary, compared to Democratic votes in a hotly contested and enormously consequential primary, also suggests Republican muscle.

Donald Trump -- hopeless optimist

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Mr. Trump was directly asked by a member of the audience what he personally could do to make the political discourse in Washington more civil. “I wouldn’t be sitting up here if I turned my cheek,” he responded flatly. “We get hit so hard. We have to fight back.” Mr. Trump mentioned Mr. Biden by name and then stopped to note that he had not called him “sleepy Joe”, because he was trying to be nice. Mr. Trump said he remains hopeful on the civility in Washington question. But first, he said, he has to beat the Democrats one more time. Only then, he predicted, will Democrats surrender in peace and say: “OK, that’s it. Let’s get along.” One thing's for sure, he is one hopeless optimist.

Bad News: Lindsey Graham Wants Election Year Immigration Bill

The idea that giving amnesty to illegal aliens, no matter how tear-jerkingly their case is presented, will net the President more votes than he loses to those who oppose special treatment for any class of illegal aliens, shows just how out of touch Senator Lindsey Graham and the pro-amnesty crowd in the White House are with Trump’s base voters.

Assault on America, Day 432: Jealousy and envy of Trump won’t heal Democrats’ deep divisions

Democrats envy Donald Trump, and the jealousy doesn’t end there. Liberals see a Republican Party united like never before and the daunting prospect of battling an incumbent president who’s (literally) survived trial after trial. There are dark clouds on the horizon and Democrats are justifiably terrified.

Why Trump Would Easily Beat Biden

David Catron, The American Spectator

Even if Joe were able to handle the job, he couldn’t be trusted with it. Biden’s career is a case study in nepotism and influence peddling. Even Politico Magazine admits, “Over his decades in office, ‘Middle-Class Joe’s’ family fortunes have closely tracked his political career.” By now everyone in the galaxy knows the tawdry tale of Hunter Biden. The Atlantic styles this “socially acceptable corruption.” But most voters don’t see it that way. Biden and his crooked cronies represent a fetid swamp filled with self-dealing politicians and bureaucrats. Donald Trump was sent to Washington to rid us of such people. They will never replace him with an archetypal swamp creature like Biden.

Joe Biden Is No ‘Moderate’ On Immigration And Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

If Joe Biden’s radical stance on immigration is what passes for “moderate” in the Democratic Party, then they really have gone off the progressive cliff. In essence, his proposals would create an "amnesty in place," gut worksite enforcement, create a magnet for millions to enter the United States illegally and prove a boon to human traffickers and fraudulent-document vendors.

Assault on America, Day 429: Would Donald Trump really dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley?

Just because the Democrat establishment was able to pull off a miracle and save Joe Biden’s candidacy from the political trash heap doesn’t grant them license to start giving President Trump advice – or to predict that he’s about to dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley. Time and events are on Trump’s side – and he knows it.

Assault on America, Day 428: Resurrected Joe Biden ain’t any better than the one left for dead

Joe Biden just ain’t that smart. And voting against Trump won’t be enough, especially since Harry Reid tipped Democrats’ (empty) hand early – all they have is racism and fear mongering going for them. That’s Hillary redux, not a winning message. Democrats very well could regret bringing Joe back from the political dead.

The Myth Of Joe Biden The Moderate

The Democrats’ problem in appealing to moderates is pretty simple – try as they might to disguise their real views, none of the Democrat candidates, especially Joe Biden, are moderates. Setting aside Biden’s rapidly increasing propensity to have brain freezes and bizarre episodes of confusion out on the campaign trail, the former VP has revealed himself to be no “moderate” on issue after issue.

Assault on America, Day 427: Democrats forget Joe Biden is/was an awful (and old) candidate

With the Democrat nominating contest dwindled down to two viable contenders, the chances of party voters settling on one clear leader before their convention aren’t great. The effort to stop Bernie Sanders will continue but it’ll take something akin to a miracle to make either of them look as strong and vibrant as Trump.

Trump Should Play the 19th Amendment Card in 2020

David Catron, The American Spectator

Trump has to point out that just as Barack Obama has attempted to take credit for the Trump economy, the Democrats are attempting to take credit for the Republican fight to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the Constitution. Democrats will attempt to appropriate the 19th Amendment in hopes of winning back crucial female votes. The hundredth anniversary of the amendment’s ratification by the states will be on August 18, 2020. The media will collude with the Democrats in their effort to claim this Republican achievement as their own. This means President Trump has to make clear, as does every Republican, that the Democrats were on the wrong side of history on the right of every woman to vote.

Democrats Trying To Consolidate Race Into Biden vs. Bernie

Klobuchar and Buttigieg are endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden in an effort to pump up his faltering campaign, and as the Democrat establishment tries to consolidate behind Biden, the Far Left has begun a social media campaign to push Senator Elizabeth Warren to drop out of the race and endorse Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.
