Assault on America, Day 504: Will the ghost of 'The Bern' haunt Grampa Joe on Election Day?

Both parties’ prospects depend on being able to turn out their bases and here’s thinking Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats will encounter more than their share of resistance from the Bernie Sanders revolutionary faction. Much damage was done during the party primaries and won’t be repaired no matter how many endorsements flow in the interim.

The Media Bias Against Florida's Conservative Governor Ron DeSantis

New York has 10 times the coronaviru deaths that Florida has. With the Democrat icon showing so badly the liberal media claims the notion that there is a blue-state and a red-state way of attacking the virus is absurd. We might agree, if the Leftwing media was not giving New York's Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo a pass for his disastrous results while pillorying Florida's conservative Governor Ron DeSantis for his success, not only in saving lives, but getting Floridians back to work.

Assault on America, Day 503: Full recovery is possible in politics. The economy? We’ll see

Surveys confirm politics is taking a backseat to worries over the coronavirus pandemic, but sooner or later people will need to pay attention to the statistics and hedge bets that things will be okay. Since going “Back to the Future” isn’t an option in the real world, Americans must rely on the good sense and work ethic that brought them to 2020 in the first place.

Fauci vs. Trump -- Who's Right?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

Fauci is not "The Decider" here. Trump is. It is he who is accountable to the nation for weighing the losses, both human and material, due to his decisions. Fauci may be the best at what he does, but he is still only an adviser. Believing he can do no more than his White House is now doing to contain the incidence of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, Trump has decided his primary job is to prevent the nation from a catastrophic economic collapse from which it might take years to recover. Trump will be responsible for whether the policy succeeds or opens the floodgates to a second and worse wave, should it come.

To Mask Or Not To Mask?

If you are suffering from whiplash or feel like you are watching a tennis match join the club trying to follow the conflicting medical advice about face masks. And if the medical and public health advice is conflicting, wearing a mask – or not – now seems to have become a political statement as well. As the unconstitutional lockdowns begin to come off other arbitrary mandates, such as wearing a mask when outdoors, are being imposed. We are interested in what CHQ readers think about wearing a mask – please let us know in the comments after this article.

The Best Defense Against Covid-19 is a Strong Immune System

Given the importance of our immune systems in keeping us in good health, and protecting us from the pandemic, one would think serious attention would be given to strengthening everyone’s immune systems before drugs and medical procedures are needed.  But one would be wrong in that assumption.  Very little attention is focused on strengthening natural immunity, in the mainstream media or even in the general medical community.

Assault on America, Day 502: Deliver us from fear, Chinese Communist Party virus edition

This ever-evolving nightmare must end and common sense says to err on the side of optimism and the belief our country can endure the worst of trials and pandemics. This isn’t the Black Death we’re talking about. At some point, government must trust the people, and maybe then, the people will put their fear away and start trusting the government in return.

Assault on America, Day 499: Democrats to ditch convention over worries about doddering Joe

We all spend too much time worrying about things that probably will never happen. Democrats are taking their uncertainties to the extreme by (likely) canceling their quadrennial nominating convention this summer. Perhaps their fears are justified, however: President Trump is dismantling Obama’s legacy -- and they are powerless to stop it.

Assault on America, Day 498: Childish Grampa Joe losing substance battle with President Trump

With the quarantine portion of the weird coronavirus conundrum seemingly winding to a close, politicians like Joe Biden will be compelled to come out of hiding and supply substance rather than submitting op-eds to the Washington Post and calling Trump “childish.” Will Joe offer something more than Trump Derangement Syndrome? Voters want to know.

We're Winning

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

When Trump came in, he had no Rolodex of experienced executive hands to both protect him and to crush his enemies. We saw how that inexperience hurt him early on as the libs exploited it. Exhibit A is how LTG Flynn trusted the FBI bureaucracy. Trump is now surrounded by ruthless and seasoned D.C. operators who know how to play the game. The Dems and their garbage media serfs’ edge early on was that they were up against novices. No more. One need only watch how Kayleigh McEnany imposed her iron discipline upon that pipsqueak reporter then cruised off the podium, leaving him sobbing like the pathetic loser he is.

Assault on America, Day 497: After COVID-19, bring on limited government and more freedom

Few would argue with the need to bring about change in the upcoming months and years, but it can’t be because politicians claim the system is badly flawed. The economy was doing well a few months ago and with more freedom and some rational government moves, we might see that “out with the old and in with the new” is a good thing.

Assault on America, Day 496: George W. Bush shouldn’t be lecturing Trump on human behavior

The only reason why some liberals praised George W. Bush last week was to score a backhanded slap at President Trump. Trump’s political enemies aren’t always easily identified but they seem to act in predictable ways. Like with different colored bears in the wild, they need to be separated accordingly.

Assault on America, Day 495: Time to hit brakes on federal spending and worry about tomorrow

With the health threat from the coronavirus winding down in the individual states, it’s time to carefully consider the next steps and not sustain the out-of-control federal spending of the past three months. A fiscal emergency can be just as urgent as a disease pandemic, but moves made now will heavily impact the future.

Behind Trump's Strategic Pivot

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

By summer's end, he sees himself as having led us through the medical crisis that is then receding, and up and out of a Second Depression. That will be his best argument for reelection. If this scenario unfolds, Trump can make the case that while China was the origin of the Wuhan virus that killed scores of thousands of Americans, it was Donald J. Trump who led us through the tragedy, and he is leading us forward, once again, to a new prosperity. What will be Joe Biden's argument to lead America, after having sat out the worst crisis since World War II in his basement? Trump's strategic pivot puts Biden in a box.

Has Trump Already Won Reelection?

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Looking at the polls in early May Democrats might feel optimistic about their chances of beating Trump. But polls do not tell us everything that can be known about politics. The betting odds, which are determined by people actually wagering their own money on the election, show Trump a solid favorite to win reelection. Maybe those bettors know something the pundits don’t know, but how many people would be willing to bet on Biden’s “electability”? If the Vegas odds are right, and Trump is headed toward a decisive victory in November, we may look back in six months and realize that “Sleepy Joe” never had a chance.

Assault on America, Day 492: ‘Tomorrow’ is just about all that’s left for doddering Joe Biden

It boggles the mind to consider Joe Biden is destined to be the Democrats’ 2020 nominee, as he struggles to string together coherent sentences and doesn’t appear to be in control of his own faculties. Joe’s search for the perfect running mate match must be taxing what’s left of his limited cognitive capacity. Down the road awaits Donald Trump. Daunting.

Assault on America, Day 491: Now more than ever, Trump should tout economy for reelection

Everyone knows the economy will be the foremost issue in this year’s election, and most people recognize President Trump is the best leader to handle the near-impossible task of getting things back to normal. In making the argument, Trump should cite both his record and his experience, assets no opponent could match.

National Coronavirus Recovery Commission Announces Five-Phase Plan To Reopen America

These Heritage Foundation recommendations will help to restart economic activity while suppressing the novel coronavirus to give the American people the confidence to begin returning to normal. The plan is formulated to save both our lives and our livelihoods. It is not about choosing between protecting lives or the economy, but about achieving the prudent balance needed to protect both. We urge CHQ readers to download the report, read it and share it with the leaders of your community.

Assault on America, Day 490: Forrest Gump sets the line between science and common sense

These days it’s hard to tell where “science” stops and good judgment begins, but the coronavirus conundrum and China’s role in the pandemic will help reveal the dividing line. Democrat politicians can only hide behind graphs, charts and models for so long -- sooner or later, they’ll have to start making sense.

Assault on America, Day 489: Time to fuel up and let Trump be Trump across America again

Word that President Trump plans to get on the road again is welcome news to conservatives and Republicans weary of seeing him confined to the White House and unable to appeal directly to voters instead of being bludgeoned by Democrats and the media without let-up. Here’s to well-worn luggage, Mr. Trump.
