Battling the Democrats’ big lie about Donald Trump

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The suggestion that the president is the personification of evil and is destroying all that makes America exceptional has become so routine that it’s easy to ignore it. In fact, it’s an ­extraordinary charge, even for our nasty, turbulent times. If Attorney General Bill Barr keeps his promise, we will know exactly what was done to Trump during the 2016 campaign, and who did it. Which brings us back to the Big Lie about Trump being a “threat to our democracy.” Clinton and other Dems continue to peddle it because it is their last defense against the emerging truth. In fact, some people did try to destroy our democracy and change our nation’s character. They are still trying to cover up their crimes. None is named Donald Trump.

McConnell Ready To Betray Trump on Spending

White House officials are leery of where budget talks between McConnell and Pelosi may lead, noting that the last bipartisan deal reached in early 2018 boosted spending by $300 billion over two years. Conservative policy experts are urging Trump not to trust McConnell to put together a spending deal that wouldn’t blow up the deficit.

Assault on America, Day 118: Mind-numbed media wouldn't survive without Donald Trump

The media will maintain their Trump fascination as long as the president continues to draw people towards him. Some loath Trump, others adore him. Similarly, the 2020 Democrat candidates can’t win without stealing some of the attention Trump gets. How will it balance out?

What Do The Never Trump Losers Do Now?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

There are secret Never Trumpers hoping to wait out this madness, counting the days until some squishy Jeb!-ish nominee named something like Marco will usher in a bright and beautiful new era of efficiently managed decline. So we must remain vigilant. We must strike ruthlessly when we detect these weak and defeatist tendencies in our conservative leaders, both inside politics and in the conservative media. Never Trump is really Never Win. To the extent that “Trumpism” means fighting for victory, being woke to the fact that the establishment is garbage, and not giving a damn what our much-worse betters think, we must be Always Trump.

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

Setting The Record Straight On Trump’s Charlottesville Remarks

There’s nothing “Right” or conservative about the Neo-Nazis who gathered in Charlottesville, but lying about who they are and what President Trump said about them serves the interests of Democrat politicians, like Joe Biden, and so the Left and their fellow travelers in the media will continue to do so.

Assault on America, Day 117: Joe (race) Biden (race), Democrat (race) for (race) President!

A thorough perusal of the Democrat presidential candidate menu reveals a collection of entrees that will either make Americans ill or put them to sleep. Joe Biden may be the special du jour but beneath his provocative ingredient description lies a man who doesn’t have a clue why he’s even running.

The one lesson Trump's enemies just can't understand

Monica Crowley, Washington Times

Congress is engaging in Investigation Overload. And it’s boomeranging badly on Mr. Trump’s enemies in two ways. One, the myriad probes are increasingly viewed not as Eliot Ness-like searches for the truth but as unnecessary, vindictive, desperate and mean-spirited ambushes targeting a president trying his best to govern. And two, Mr. Trump’s enemies and their clown-car investigations are accomplishing a formerly impossible thing: Turning him into a sympathetic figure. Mr. Trump has been wise to recognize and capitalize on this emotional impulse, while the principle of diminishing returns continues to be lost on his enemies. Perhaps after he’s re-elected in 2020, they’ll learn.

The Democrats’ Mean Girls Problem

Few voters outside college campuses and the liberal Twitterverse are attracted to angry white feminists, sneering liberal arrogance, smug elite condescension, Hillary Clinton-style flip-floppers and scary socialist commissars – which pretty well sums-up the females in the Democratic field.

Why Is This Enemy Even Allowed To Speak Here?

If President Trump and Secretary of State Pompeo are serious about stopping the Iranian Islamist threat to the West, their first order of business should be to stop giving the Iranians American forums from which they can threaten Israel and undermine our policies.

Assault on America, Day 114: Pocahontas Warren’s bizarre student loan payoff ploy will flop

Elizabeth Warren is buried in the lower echelon of 2020 Democrat presidential candidates, which should result in a host of crazy proposals intended to gain traction with the party base. Be it with paying off everyone’s student loans or nationalizing marijuana, “Pocahontas” is flat out of her mind.

New Gallup Poll: Government And Immigration Top Voter Concerns

Immigration is the top concern of Republicans. While this highlights the difficulty of finding a bipartisan solution to the issue, it also suggests immigration will be an important election issue for Republicans, and one the president and GOP should use to drive turnout and support for Trump in 2020.

Lunch Bucket Joe And The Mafia Hit Man

As Joe Biden announces for president it is worth recalling he has a long, friendly, and somewhat dark history with the Teamsters, or, more accurately, a mafia hitman, the late Frank Sheeran, who also happened to be the president of Teamsters local 326 in Delaware and helped make Biden a U.S. senator.

Assault on America, Day 113: Rush Limbaugh, Trump and the non-greatness of Tiger Woods

Real heroes are parents who toil in relative anonymity, known only to those in their immediate circles. Or military men and women who risk their lives for us. Or border patrol agents and policemen who do their jobs out of service and love. Does Tiger Woods fit in the same “greatness” category? You decide.

We Need Supply Side Warrior Steve Moore On The Fed Board

We strongly support Stephen Moore for the Fed Board and urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators today (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to urge them to vote to confirm Steve Moore when his nomination to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors comes before the Senate.

Mexican Military Now Patrolling North Of The Border, US Sovereignty Violated Repeatedly

While two American soldiers were parked south of the border fence, but north of the Rio Grande riverbed, placing them “appropriately in U.S. territory,” five or six Mexican soldiers approached with FX-05 Xiuhcoatl rifles, ordered them out of their vehicle and disarmed one of the Americans. This is just the latest in more than 500 Mexican military border violations in the past decade.

Assault on America, Day 112: What kind of team bans ‘God Bless America’ due to 1930s satire?

It’s sad that few probably noticed the New York Yankees’ removal of Kate Smith’s classic “God Bless America” from the seventh inning stretch. It’s even worse the team felt a need to do it based on events from a different time and mindset. Such is the way of the politically correct.

Trump’s best move forward: ignore the Dems, focus on policy

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

In practical terms, Trump should admit to himself that his policies are more popular than his personality. He can help his cause — and the country — by finalizing strong trade deals with China and Europe and keeping the pressure on North Korea and Iran — while keeping American soldiers out of big wars. The home front will be more difficult because Dems control the House, and their harassment will be impossible to ignore. But the president must resist the temptation to respond to every insult from Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters and Jerry Nadler and instead play the long, substantive game.

Bernie Steals the ‘No More Wars’ Issue From Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump may have just ceded the peace issue in 2020 to the Democrats. If Sanders emerges as the nominee, we will have an election with a Democrat running on the “no-more-wars” theme Trump touted in 2016. And Trump will be left defending the bombing of Yemeni rebels and civilians by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia. Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president? Prediction: by the primaries of 2020, foreign policy will be front and center, and the Democratic Party will have captured the “no more wars” political high ground that candidate Donald Trump occupied in 2016.

Assault on America, Day 111: Why America will never fall for ‘President Pete’ or Oprah’s guru

While it’s true any natural born American citizen over the age of 35 (and having lived in the U.S. for 14 years) is eligible to be president, it takes a lot more than a few interesting personal chits to realize the dream. Pete Buttigieg and Marianne Williamson are not typical Democrats -- and their candidacies are a punchline.
