Good News From Trump Wrecks Democrats

The American workers Donald Trump promised to fight for are the real winners of the Trump economic boom. Good news for Americans is death to the Democrat Party, and that is why in their coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union message most of the establishment media could not get beyond the shenanigans of the white-clad Democratic congresswomen.

Assault on America, Day 35: Filled with purpose, Trump sets proper tone for America in SOTU

President Trump’s Tuesday speech will be picked apart and dissected for hidden meanings in the coming days but it primarily was a call for a political ceasefire so as to accomplish positive results for Americans. In doing so, Trump fulfilled his presidential purpose. Will Democrats do their part?

Assault on America, Day 34: Trump should use SOTU bully pulpit to highlight best of America

Those hoping President Trump’s State of the Union address will help end the current political stalemate between the parties will be sorely disappointed. Nothing short of complete capitulation to Democrat demands would satisfy the opposition. The future is at stake…will people wake up?

Who Is ‘Far-Right’?

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Getting labeled “far right” is astonishingly easy in the Trump era, when Democrats and their media allies would have us believe that the White House is occupied by the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler and that the nearly 63 million Americans who elected him are “white nationalists” or “alt-right” or some other scary term. If you vote Republican, you don’t actually have to do anything to be accused of crypto-Nazi sentiments by the purveyors of progressive paranoia. Merely express support for the president’s agenda (or opposition to the Democrats’ agenda) and you’re a latter-day Eichmann.

Assault on America, Day 33: The Patriots won the Super Bowl; who will triumph on the border wall?

Because the parties are so far apart on the border wall funding dilemma, there’s no easy answer in sight. Democrats won’t consider the arguments in favor of a barrier despite having recognized them in the past. The Super Bowl had a winner and loser -- will it be the same in Congress?

Why Trump Will Win the Wall Fight

David Catron, The American Spectator

Trump's SOTU address will deliver all manner of good news about the economy, deregulation, health care, foreign policy, and will have laid out a plan for the wall. The Democrats will have offered identity politics, obstruction, investigations, and magical thinking on policy. Pelosi will at length decide it’s smarter to ignore the crazies in her caucus, give Trump something that he can call a “win” on the wall, and move on to something else… anything else. And all the TDS victims and Never Trumpers will demand to know what happened to their bête noire.

Much Has Changed for the Better Since 2016 -- Not That Trump Will Get Credit

Victor Davis Hanson, Investor's Business Daily

The news obsesses over the recent government shutdown, the latest Robert Mueller arrest and, of course, fake news -- from the BuzzFeed Michael Cohen non-story to the smears of the Covington Catholic High School students. But aside from the weekly hysterias, the world has dramatically changed since 2016 in ways we scarcely have appreciated. Many of his policies have led to more prosperity and address festering problems abroad. And despite the negative news, they are widely supported, even -- or especially -- if Trump himself is not given proper credit for enacting most of them.

Trump vs. the Spy Chiefs: Who's Right?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

Iran broke out of its isolation for two reasons. First, George W. Bush came in and overthrew its Taliban enemies on its eastern border, and then he overthrew Saddam Hussein, the enemy on its western border. As Trump contends, ISIS has been defeated and driven from its twin capitals — Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in Iraq. But it is also true that ISIS and al-Qaida still have tens of thousands of jihadists living among the peoples of the Middle East. And the great question remains: Are U.S. troops necessary over there — to prevent terrorists from coming over here? Or are they over here — because we are over there?

The state of the union is fractured

Editors, Washington Examiner

At the core of our country right now is far too much discord amounting to hatred. We have lost the ability to debate civilly. We are losing shared customs and shared culture. Our values are diverging so dramatically that we increasingly believe opposing views are not merely incorrect but intolerable and can be held only by those who are fools or are evil. Recent weeks bear this out. A society where every cultural occurrence is a culture-war battlefield is not a healthy one. The state of this union is not strong.

Trump Stuffs Democrats Harris And Feinstein On Ninth Circuit Judges

President Trump’s decision to nominate a slate of solidly conservative judges to the Ninth Circuit vacancies is another demonstration of Trump’s acumen in recognizing the nexus between politics, policy and the judiciary and the Senate is about to change its rules to end the Democrat obstruction that has stalled many of Trump's best conservative nominees.

Assault on America, Day 30: Democrats’ nutty ideas doomed to drive Americans back to GOP

Democrats’ lack of “forgiveness” or understanding for average Americans will certainly sound their death knell at the ballot box -- and that’s especially true where the border barrier is concerned. You know how Americans feel about Democrats not achieving anything? Yeah… they’re against it.

What Pundits Get Wrong About The Border Security Fight

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) signaled that Senate Republicans have no willingness to fight and no serious plan to achieve border security. Should they do nothing, Trump’s case for viewing the situation there as an emergency requiring his action would be seriously strengthened. His case that there is something seriously broken with Congress would also be strengthened. To that extent, assuming the White House doesn’t completely muck up the next three weeks, it is wise for pundits to consider what the next three weeks hold before taking their anti-Trump victory laps.

Trump Tweets On The Wall, Is Congress Listening?

President Trump may be on to the Conference Committee Republicans lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he tweeted on Wednesday, “If the committee of Republicans and Democrats now meeting on Border Security is not discussing or contemplating a Wall or Physical Barrier, they are Wasting their time!”

New Ear To The Ground Poll: Wall Is Make Or Break For Trump And GOP

Trump voters gave him a 6.71 out of 7 today – but would score him 3.82 if he fails to secure border security funds, a drop of 43 percent. While his voters are still with him today, it appears the President better build the wall or his support will significantly suffer.

Assault on America, Day 29: 2020 Democrats look like a parade of the expended and tired

Democrats aren’t so busy celebrating their “victory” on the border wall funding scrap with President Trump to look ahead to next year and who will try to beat him. The old and tired wing of the party has Joe Biden -- and probably Hillary Clinton… better prepare for a failure of epic proportions.

Democrats and Never Trumpers will put Trump back in the White House in 2020 -- Here's why

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

Over the next few weeks, as you listen to the anti-Trumpers relish the winter of discontent and pronounce the end of the Trump presidency, just remember — they were wrong in 2015 when they said he couldn’t be a serious candidate; they were wrong in the spring of 2016 when they said he couldn’t win the GOP nomination; they were wrong in 2018 when they said he should withdraw Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. Why should you believe them now?

The New York Times Attacks Us Deplorables, I Fight Back: Part 3 of 3

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
New York Times columnists Rosenfeld and Schlozman’s charge that those who hew to the foundational laws of Western Civilization outlined in the Bible are “extremists” shows just how far out of the American mainstream Democrats and their Leftwing fellow travelers have moved.

Assault on America, Day 28: SOTU postponed but Trump will enjoy last word in standoff

It’s a shame the State of the Union address did not go on as planned but President Trump is far from ready to capitulate on border wall funding. Americans will eventually see Speaker Pelosi for the unbalanced partisan hack that she is -- and politics as usual may finally be put to rest.

The Conservative Coward Caucus Betrayed Trump on the Shutdown

Brandon J. Weichert, The American Spectator

One thing is certain: Trump’s greatest political threat comes not from the crazies on the Left. Unfortunately, his greatest rivals are within the Republican Party’s leadership. It’s important to remember that President Ronald Reagan faced a similar situation. Going forward, Trump must do something bold to make the GOP establishment understand that he is the party’s true leader. Up next, then, Trump should call for the biggest infrastructure bill the country has seen — and he should work with Democrats to ensure that it happens, even as the Conservative Coward Caucus whinges about how awful having modern infrastructure would be for the country.

If the Army Stands With Maduro, What Is Plan B?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Are we inviting a civil war in Venezuela? Should the shooting start in Caracas, what do we do then? Did anyone think this through? Guiado's constitutional claim to the presidency of Venezuela was a scheme cooked up in collusion with Washington, made in the USA, with Secretary of State Pompeo, John Bolton and Sen. Marco Rubio signing on, and President Trump signing off. This was Plan A. But if Plan A does not succeed, and Maduro, with America's prestige on the line, defies our demand that he yield, what do we do then? What is Plan B?
