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.

Assault on America, Day 426: What Super Tuesday won’t solve (Trump and minority voters)

After Super Tuesday, much discussion will focus on the remaining viable candidates in the Democrat presidential race, but it shouldn’t be ignored how President Trump’s campaign is gaining a foothold with once solid Democrat constituencies. This won’t change regardless of whether it’s Bloomberg, Biden or Sanders that eventually faces him.

Biden Wins SC, Bernie Wins Cash And Polls Heading To Super Tuesday

Joe Biden goes into the Democrats' Super Tuesday primaries almost broke and with no time to turn his South Carolina win into campaign cash. Sleepy Joe may have picked up a little bounce from his South Carolina win, and Michael Bloomberg may have dumped half-a-billion dollars on TV, but it is the Far Left "woke" progressives that are driving the Democratic primaries in most states, and they are solidly in Bernie Sanders’ corner.

Will Trump Pass The Coronavirus Test?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

In recent decades, America’s economic and political elites surrendered her economic independence for globalism, a new interdependence of nations, where we Americans no longer rely on ourselves alone for the vital necessities of our national life. In the ongoing struggle between nationalism and globalism, the globalists are taking a beating. Like the Chinese and Japanese and Koreans, Americans are not going to be looking to the WHO or U.N. to ensure their health, but to their own nation-states. And if a pandemic threatens, transnationalism’s “open borders” ideology is not a policy that will bring universal acclamation. All nations are going to put their own people first. As they should.

Trump promised blowing up Washington; Bernie Sanders promises to blow up America

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Democrat frontrunner Bernie Sanders is promising to blow up America. He wants to give the federal government in Washington more power than any government in the history of the world. From cow farts to taxes, Mr. Sanders wants to empower the federal government to control virtually every aspect of Americans’ lives. The result is that Mr. Trump has garnered applause and jubilation among Republican voters in a way we have not seen since Ronald Reagan. Also, he has severely eaten into the base of Democrat voters. Mr. Sanders and his government-first, leftist Soviet-style socialism will never enjoy that kind of broad support among voters — Democrat or Republican — who love America and love freedom.

Assault on America, Day 425: Bloviating Biden wins one for the ruling class in South Carolina

Joe Biden will no doubt enjoy his South Carolina victory, but he shouldn’t get cocky. Super Tuesday looms large on the horizon and his prospects don’t look nearly as promising in the days ahead. The Democrat presidential race is more confused than ever, and the Palmetto State only made it worse.

This Is Trump Country

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Where is the “crisis” within the conservative movement that the media assured us was an inevitable consequence of Trump’s presidency? Nowhere in sight at CPAC, and I didn’t see anyone at the Gaylord identified with the notorious “alt-right,” either. It seemed to be the same conservative movement I’ve been covering at these conferences for more than a decade. The only difference from previous gatherings is that this year they’re getting ready to reelect a president. Sixteen years have elapsed since conservatives last had that chance, and with the Democrats deeply divided by Sanders’ candidacy, prospects for victory in November promise to make this year’s CPAC a fun-filled, upbeat event.
