Assault on America, Day 546: To Democrats, police reform is all about grift and naked politics

Even if times are changing, Democrats in Congress don’t seem to alter their approaches any. If there’s a way to clog up the system with additional bureaucracy and litigation, they’ll find it. The liberal party rejected Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill purely due to political reasons -- and because the South Carolinian is an African-American Republican. Shameful.

Assault on America, Day 545: No retreating on reopening the economy despite COVID-19 spike

News of a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases last week was seemingly greeted with relief by elements of the media. If true, the naysayers argue, the economy can’t be reopened, people will still be out of work and government will need to act -- again -- to take care of the unemployed. Then there’s the alternative, which is full speed ahead. Which way should we go?

Trump Calls For Tougher Republican Response To ‘Political War’

Ben Domench, The Federalist

In a wide-ranging interview, President Donald J. Trump said that the country is in the midst of “a political war … where the left will use anything to win, including the culture.” The president said that to restore order and win in 2020, his Republican allies “need to be stronger” in standing up to rioters and those who would tear down statues. “They’ve got to get much tougher,” Trump said, drawing comparisons to moments when Republicans stood together on impeachment and in battles over judicial nominees. “They have to be stronger, have to come together,” or risk losing politically and worse.

Establishment Media Ignoring What Just Happened In Iran

While the establishment media have studiously ignored reporting the story, the social media accounts of Middle East and national security experts have been abuzz with questions and information on the huge explosion or explosions that recently rocked a site believed to house one of Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities – the facilities that Obama and the Iranians claimed do not exist.

Assault on America, Day 544: Yes, Obama, we cling to guns, religion and conservative media

Having Democrats blaming conservative media figures for the way things are in the U.S. today isn’t new. Bill Clinton all-but pinned 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing on his conservative critics. Then Hillary coined it “The vast rightwing conspiracy.” President Trump is no fan of the “fake news” media either. The battle for the news narrative will continue.

2020 Election Will Be a Contest of the Angry

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

For good or evil, the 2020 election is no longer really about Biden and Trump, Democratic or Republican policies, or progressive and conservative agendas. Racism, the protesting Left says, is in the American DNA. It finally requires massive cutting, chemotherapy, and radiation — treatment that deservedly will sicken and may even kill the host. The other half of the country will vote to preserve what is under attack. The angry and the demonstrating are loud and visible; their opponents are angry and quiet. The election will reveal not just who is more numerous — but sadly also who is the angriest.

Trump can recover from this

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

To get four more years, Trump's campaign needs good luck, a more disciplined candidate and a better message. Actually, it’s not correct to say Team Trump needs a better message, since it doesn’t seem to have any clear message at all. To get back on track, honing and delivering an appealing message is essential. It must center around giving disaffected supporters and other fence-sitters an affirmative reason to give the president a second look. That means laying out a coherent vision for a second term, one larger and more specific than simply saying we’re going to do more of the same, only better.

A Look at CNN'S Joke-Shaming Double Standard

Tim Graham, CNS News

On May 20, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo submitted himself to a coronavirus test on camera. Cuomo's brother Chris joked about it. CNN happily posted the fun on YouTube. An epic series of hypocritical outrages appeared on June 21 and 22 after President Donald Trump made a comment at his Tulsa rally about slowing down coronavirus testing. Surely, most Americans would tell a pollster that both of these routines were distasteful. But CNN only raged about one. Chris Cuomo had a chance to be the Perfect Hypocrite. But he took the night off on Monday. Would anyone guess CNN had the slightest shame or scruple?

Assault on America, Day 541: ‘Preacher’ Trump should take a page from 2016, pack substance

President Trump is one of the most talented politicians of the modern age, yet even he could stand to alter his approach to politics from time to time. Elections are always about the future and at his next rally, Trump would do well to talk a lot more about what he intends to do in his second term, something that would reassure more than his already dedicated fans.

Assault on America, Day 540: Crime up in cities, but who to blame? Depends on who you ask

The 2020 election is destined to be one heck of a nasty fight. Who will get the blame for the rancor? Hint: His name starts with Donald and his last name rhymes with “bump.” And it’s not because he’s mean or racist or was a celebrity and regular presence in the tabloids. It’s because Trump represents a complete departure from the status quo. To the elites, that’s bad.

Conservatives Applaud Trump’s American Workers First Executive Order

In the face of opposition from Big Business and the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis, and lobbying by some of his own White House staff who secretly and not-so-secretly share their globalist views, this latest Executive Order limiting immigration is another concrete example of Donald Trump keeping faith with America’s forgotten men and women.

Assault on America, Day 539: Democrats and the media play ‘unity’ card, but it’s a huge bluff

Democrats did their darndest to ruin President Trump’s Tulsa rally, but if you listened to the content and themes of the speech, it still was a huge success. The opposition party may depict themselves as “unified,” but just below the surface is a seething cauldron of anger and disagreement. It’s only a matter of time before it explodes into something more sinister.

Take Teddy Roosevelt Off Mount Rushmore While You Are At It

Like all historical figures, Teddy Roosevelt’s legacy is complex, but if his own descendants won’t defend the first President to invite an African-American to dine as a guest at the White House, far be it from us to take on the woke social justice warrior mob to defend the legacy of the egotist who split the Republican Party and set the stage for the election of Democrat Woodrow Wilson, one of the most virulent racists to ever sully American politics.

SCOTUS Ruling Makes No Case for Changes in Trump Policy on Transgenders in Military

On January 22, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court effectively overruled four district judge preliminary injunctions against President Trump’s call for changes in military transgender policies. Following that 5-4 ruling, the Pentagon announced plans to begin implementation of the 2018 policy on April 12, 2019. Absent congressional action there is still strong Supreme Court precedent to uphold the Trump policy should the cases currently in litigation get that far.

Assault on America, Day 538: Do Democrats still want to swap Andrew Cuomo for Joe Biden?

There haven’t been many bright spots in the political realm lately, but one was when Gov. Andrew Cuomo fell out of favor with the adoring establishment media. Common sense doesn’t always matter in our politically correct modern society, but numbers still carry some weight. Cuomo failed to safeguard his constituents, and the truth caught up with him.

Lindsey Graham Joins Democrats Opposes Trump And Barr On NYC U.S. Attorney

The toll-free Capitol switchboard is (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senator Graham to tell him President Trump deserves to exercise the full power of his office to appoint any qualified person to the office of U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Tell him the so-called Senate tradition of honoring “blue slips” gives Democrats a power over President Trump that they never gave Republicans when Obama was President.

David Franke On Covid-19’s Greatest Tragedy: The Nursing Home Elderly

We were warned by the nation’s first large coronavirus outbreak—the one at that nursing home in Kirkland, Washington. But New York's Andrew Cuomo isn’t the only guilty governor. Gov. Phil Murphy of New Jersey issued an almost identical order six days after Cuomo, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan has also issued such a directive. All three are liberal Democrats who claim to speak for the disadvantaged—but who is more helpless than these nursing home patients?

Assault on America, Day 537: Trump rocks in Tulsa, Biden still missing in (political) action

As demonstrated at the Trump rally on Saturday night, the president’s supporters will vote for him because they see his accomplishments and back his agenda. Biden’s people will choose him because they’re against Trump. The distinction will reveal itself on Election Day. In the meantime, where the heck is Grampa Joe?

This Leftist Tantrum Is an Information Operation and Trump Is Winning It

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Right now, the American people are seeing chaos. But chaos does not necessarily play against Trump. Do you think this is all helping the Dems? If you do, stop watching MSNBCNN. Except among Hollywood jerks, urban hipsters and whiny woke wine women from Westchester, the attack on order means “Advantage: Trump.” You can see the results if you look behind the media curtain. Trump is winning this information battle. Conservative Americans – and moderate Americans who want law and order – can’t wait to vote against defunding the police, rioting and appeasement. The Silent Majority is being roused again.

Trashing Trump in Prime Time

Tim Graham, CNS News

Try to remember a time when ABC offered a prime-time special to an Obama insider who wrote a rip-roaring "tell-all" book. Most publishers are liberals and won't roll out the red carpet for that kind of book, even if the author is a liberal. To be fair, former Obama officials came out with memoirs that said something negative about Obama...and they were attacked for it. There's no need to prejudge what John Bolton will say. But we can judge a long history of "tell-all" imbalance, from the publishing houses to the TV studios. Republicans are mercilessly dissected. Democrats are carefully protected.
