Assault on America, Day 477: Media fixates on Biden VP choice to steal spotlight from Trump

With not much else happening in the coronavirus-dominated news cycle, the media is working overtime to generate interest in matters like Joe Biden’s upcoming running mate selection. We can’t be sure who he’ll choose, but we know for certain she will be a big government loving nanny state liberal…just like him!

COVID-19 Origins: The Must-Read Truth From Clare Lopez

As an explanation of how the Chinese Communists understand warfare “Made in China” stands on its own as an excellent primer on the subject, but our interest is in Clare Lopez’s report as the best short explanation available of how the 2019-nCoV came into existence and how the Communist Chinese weaponized the pandemic against the West.

Assault on America, Day 476: Politicians who protest the protesters merit removal from office

Every American politician should take pride in the citizenry actively engaging in societal governance, and this includes protesting when they feel their leaders aren’t acting in their best interests. In good and difficult times alike, government must be responsive to the voices of the people. Protests are a healthy thing, not a threat to well-being.

Why coronavirus will not cost Trump reelection

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

My view is that the president, like virtually everyone else in Washington, including Democrats, the media and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was slow off the mark and initially reluctant to see the virus as a major threat. But once Trump crossed that threshold, he became, as he put it, a “wartime president” and has performed very well at marshaling supplies, working cooperatively with private firms and states facing the biggest outbreaks and keeping the public informed. Although his rhetoric can be absolutist, Trump has been flexible when it was needed and his deference to medical and health professionals is refreshingly out of character.

President Trump Should Adjourn Congress and Fill Critical Executive Positions

The conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project, led by President Reagan’s Attorney General Edwin Meese III and CAP Chairman Alfred S. Regnery, have released an open letter to President Trump urging him to adjourn Congress and use his recess appointment power fill key positions that have been left vacant in his administration through congressional inaction and obstruction.

Assault on America, Day 475: Why we just might see more MAGA hats on campus real soon

It's hard to say whether we’ll soon be spotting MAGA hats on reopened college campuses, but there’s little doubt that recent youth opinion surveys are encouraging. Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats depend on waves of young voters turning out to favor them, and if they don’t… well, you can predict the rest of the story.

Only You Can Put America Back To Work

Clearly, the imposition of tyrannical collective rules are only acceptable to those with high levels of fear; prohibiting skateboarding, forbidding solo motorboating and “non-essential” advertising are rightly losing the support of millions of Americans who are already ignoring them as unscientific, irrational and in many cases unconstitutional. What is needed to get us back to "normal" is for each of us to take responsibility for our own safety and manage our fears accordingly.

AR-15 Build - Our CHQ Cabin Fever Project Part 2, Step 3, Completion Of The Lower Receiver

Many would be gun buyers have found popular guns, such as the AR-15, to be as scarce as toilet paper. This temporary demand-based shortage of AR-15s has prompted many Americans to take the practical and perfectly legal (in most jurisdictions) alternative of building their own AR-platform rifle. Follow us in Part 2, Step 3 of our project as we complete our lower receiver to exercise our Second Amendment rights and ward off cabin fever by building an AR-15.

Why Trump Will Win the Post-Pandemic Election

David Catron, The American Spectator

Biden will enjoy a disproportionate amount of “earned media.” The 2016 election illustrated the limitations of that once formidable resource. Trump also has other advantages such as a sophisticated “virtual campaign.” As Jennifer Harper wrote, “President Trump has once again proven he can bypass the news media and take his message directly to the public.” It's why the Democrats are anxious to shut down the economy. Their only hope is that the coronavirus recession will be blamed on Trump. As usual, however, they underestimate the intelligence of the voters and the president himself. When we emerge from the pandemic, Trump will have won yet again.

We Are Approaching COVID-19 Gut-Check Time

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In the coming days, the President Donald Trump will have to make a lose-lose decision to either inaugurate a graduated return to work or keep the country locked down for weeks longer. Economists will likely urge him to restart the economy as fast as possible. Epidemiologists will warn of a second viral spike if millions go back to work. Trump will either be praised for saving the American economy or damned for dooming thousands. Timelines grow shorter. The virus and the draconian reaction to it are wearing down a quarantined America. We are on the verge of learning a lot more about the virus that will result in as much disagreement as relief.

Of Course It’s Trump’s Call

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

You don’t need a plan. You need freedom. Your plan is guaranteed not to work for the majority of Americans, whose needs and responsibilities don’t match whatever you’re going to put in your white paper. These people are adults. They’ve managed to survive in the world long enough to make their own decisions. They didn’t deserve to have their lives upended and their livelihoods destroyed, something that a lousy government check or a worse government loan, whether forgiven or not, is not recompense for. You have done enough to them. Let my people go. Just let them go. They’ve all seen enough of this virus that they understand the risks, and they’ll act accordingly.

Assault on America, Day 471: Obama endorsed ‘ol Joe Biden. Here’s how it (probably) happened

Conservatives may not agree with the Obamas but we concede that they’re not losers. Any takers for a bet on whether Barack and Michelle would risk everything just for the chance of standing in the background for Joe Biden? No way! Endorsements don’t mean much today, but non-endorsements do. Waiting all this time to choose Joe spoke volumes.

An Economic Shutdown Based On... What?

Today there is widespread skepticism about the statistical projections of the coronavirus epidemiological models, even when we confine ourselves to the statistics about deaths, which are the most verifiable.  Maybe not on MSNBC and most of CNN, but then they live in their own universe.  There is evidence, however, that our political and financial establishments are becoming alarmed that we have crippled the economy on the basis of nonsense.

Assault on America, Day 470: Joe Biden’s task force would dictate to businesses after COVID-19

There’s no end in sight to liberals’ crazy proposals for dealing with our new realities after everyone returns to work and socializing is once again “permitted” by the petty tyrant swamp class. Joe Biden wants to appoint a business safety task force and Alyssa Milano begs people not to buy guns. Another day in coronavirus paradise.

Democrats Are Using The Wuhan Virus To Reframe Big Government Tyranny As Patriotism

Democrats have (as usual) quickly identified the messages necessary to extract the maximum political utility out of the COVID-19 epidemic and the associated panic. If conservatives want to avoid having this panic turn into an opportunity for Progressives to move our politics and culture further to the Left, then we must take seriously the lessons of the Frontier Center’s "Progressive Patriotism" study.

AG Barr And Conservatives Striking Back At Church Lockdowns

Conservative patience with the extra-constitutional Wuhan virus lockdowns finally reached the breaking point on Easter, when elected officials across the country chose to use the alleged epidemic as an excuse to trample on religious liberty. Now conservatives, led by Attorney General William Barr, and conservative religious liberty organizations First Liberty Institute and Liberty Counsel are fighting back.

Assault on America, Day 469: Trump’s resolve to reopen the country comes with (some) risk

The coronavirus panic has presented a wealth of challenges no one could’ve anticipated just two months ago. With much of the United States (and the world) shut down to try and contain the spread, the largest issue remaining is the proper time to return society to normal. President Trump will decide. Is there an incorrect answer?

Democrats Would Rather Blame Trump Than China for the Pandemic

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

By focusing their attention on Trump, Democrats are in essence aiding the CCP in their nefarious activities that could well do immense damage to the future of our country and the world. But never mind. Trump must go. The Dem’s and the media’s objective is clearly to drive a wedge between Trump and the scientists to make the president seem like a greedy yahoo willing to sacrifice his fellow citizens for the good of the stock market. Like all political parties they still want power and Biden represents the past in every way imaginable. All they really have to generate excitement is how they can paint Trump. This should be alarming to our nation and the world.

AR-15 Build - Our CHQ Cabin Fever Project Part 2, Step 2, The Fire Control Group

Many would be gun buyers have found popular guns, such as the AR-15, to be as scarce as toilet paper. This temporary demand-based shortage of AR-15s has prompted many Americans to take the practical and perfectly legal (in most jurisdictions) alternative of building their own AR-platform rifle. Follow us in Part 2, Step 2 of our project as we assemble the fire control group to exercise our Second Amendment rights and ward off cabin fever by building an AR-15.

Assault on America, Day 468: Bernie’s campaign bit the dust, but will Democrats carry it on?

Bernie Sanders’ exit from the 2020 Democrat primary race didn’t engender much comment, nor should it have. Joe Biden’s got his hands full trying to pick a running mate who satisfies the many factions of Democrats, but his real challenge is getting the American public invested in the party agenda again. After coronavirus, it won’t happen.
