The Paul Ryan Border Disaster Forces Trump Veto

Keeping the focus of his veto message on the facts of the situation on the border was probably the wisest course for the President, but let’s be brutally honest; the reason President Trump was put in this situation was because of the abject failure, or perhaps outright treachery of former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

Assault on America, Day 75: Trump veto signals no retreat on vow to drain the putrid DC swamp

President Trump’s excellent political instincts were proven correct as he saved his first veto for the crucial immigration issue. Congress’s decades-long stalling on the wall pushed the problem into crisis mode. Trump’s leadership showed Republicans how it’s done -- but will they learn?

It’s Time For Conservatives To Choose: Fight Back Or Surrender

Derek Hunter, Townhall

Conservatives never return the favor of dragging old quotes or actions into the light, they almost uniformly refuse to call for boycotts. They prefer to “take the high road.” What good is the high road if it leads to defeat? Moral victories are just a polite way to justify losing. Liberals collect scalps, conservatives collect moral victories. This isn’t a battle for local dog catcher, it’s a fight for the future of the country; it’s time for the right to fight back the way they’re being attacked.

Trump's Most Daunting Task: Educating on Socialism

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Our youth has suffered from a form of child abuse by their teachers and the media. They have been told, implicitly and explicitly, from earliest childhood that socialism is the preferable system because of "fairness." The next election is likely to be some form of socialism versus capitalism, no matter who the Democrats nominate. If Bernie Sanders, it will be front and center, but it won't be far away with other candidates. Every election is said to be the most consequential. This one really is. It's about a lot more than the individuals running.

12 Republican Senators Vote To Maintain Disastrous Status Quo On Southern Border

The twelve Republicans who joined the Democrats and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border represent a cross section of the fractured and out-of-touch Capitol Hill Republican Party’s coalition of virtue signaling windbags, constitutional nincompoops and globalist establishment tools.

Assault on America, Day 72: GOP & Trump need women--and everyone else--to win big in 2020

Debate continues as to the best way to expand the GOP’s “big tent,” but it definitely won’t come through pandering to any specific demographic. Republicans would gain a lot by following President Trump’s example and standing for something and keeping promises. The rest will follow nicely.

Assault on America, Day 71: In Bernie and AOC’s Democrat party, radical is the new normal

If the definition of “radical” is “a person who advocates thorough or complete political or social reform; a member of a political party or part of a party pursuing such aims”, it definitely describes today’s Democrats. The Bernie and AOC-led opposition is for real -- and playing for keeps.

Yes, Trump is target of 'presidential harassment'

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The president's adversaries of course dismiss his protests as self-interested whining. But the fact is, Trump has a point. He is the target of an extraordinary combination, not just of federal law enforcement and congressional probes, but a long list of less-discussed but potentially consequential investigations by state and local prosecutors and regulators. Together, it adds up to a pile-on of unprecedented proportions, by and large the work of blue-state Democrats who stand to gain politically if their investigations succeed in crippling the president.

We Stand With Tucker Carlson: Never Bow To Leftist Attempts At Censorship

Tucker Carlson is absolutely right, what the Left’s outrage machine is about is power, and controlling what you see, hear and eventually what you think. And the only way to keep that power from them is to never bow to them.

Assault on America, Day 70: Why Democrats’ shunning of Fox News will cost them in 2020

Both parties are guilty of pandering to their own bases, but Democrats consistently shy away from challenges to their strange belief systems. Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 because she arrogantly assumed she’d win; 2020 Democrats seem destined to repeat the same mistake.

Assault on America, Day 69: Does anyone think giving 16-year-olds a vote is a good idea?

Liberals and Democrats love listening to today’s youth unless they’re saying something non-politically correct and supportive of President Trump and traditional values. Giving 16-year-olds the vote fulfills no useful purpose; it’s just another leftist scheme to take over the world.

Why Trump Will Win in 2020

David Catron, The American Spectator

The President is an unapologetic advocate of free-market capitalism. Understands that tax cuts for individuals and businesses — combined with aggressive deregulation — stimulate economic growth and job creation. That translates into improvements in the lives of real people and a general sense of optimism about the future. Are the voters going to give that up for pie-in-the-sky promises from a leftwing Democrat who can’t explain how to pay for them, yet insists that the President is a crook? Nope. Trump, warts and all, will win in 2020.

Can Trump Stop the Border Invasion?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If, as appears probable, President Trump is not going to be able to build his wall and all the security measures taken in this century prove inadequate to stanch the invasion of America, how does it all end? Or is this the endless invasion, where the future is decided on our 1,900-mile border with Mexico, and we, as the last superpower, are a pitiful, helpless giant too morally paralyzed to stop it? And if Trump does not stop it, who will? And what will failure mean for America’s future as one nation and one people?

Assault on America, Day 68: ‘Obama University’ to build millions of Barack and Michelle clones

The fact Obama appears to be reemerging ahead of next year’s election shows how desperate Democrats are to recall a time when they controlled everything. Obama’s “university for social change” is a scary prospect indeed. There’s a lot more damage these people can do.

Why Never Trumpers Will Never Shut Up

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Today’s Never Trump is a tiny group of greedy misfits whose gravy train got derailed – they would put it “an elite group of select individuals of discerning taste” – but we actual conservatives do spend a lot of time on manhandling them. They cite that as evidence of their lasting influence, but it’s actually the result of two other factors. The first is human nature – people hate traitors. The other reason is that the Never Trumpers have a media presence utterly out of proportion to their dwindling numbers and influence.

Enter the Disrupter

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The deep state grew increasingly political, progressive, and internationalist. Its members and cultural outlook were shaped by the good life on the two coasts and abroad. And every four or eight years, it usually greeted not so much incoming Republican or Democratic presidents as much as fusion-party representatives with reputable résumés, past memberships in similar organizations, and with outlooks identical to its own. Then the disrupter Trump crashed in. The Washington media fixtures sensed that Trump threatened to pollute the entire sea in which they swam.

Diana West’s ‘The Red Thread’ Book Launches Today

Our friend Diana West’s latest book, The Red Thread, A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, launches today in a Facebook Livestream at 11am Eastern. West’s The Red Thread is the first investigation into why a ring of senior Washington officials went rogue to derail the election and the presidency of Donald Trump.

Assault on America, Day 65: Turmoil in today’s Dem party, where common sense is apostacy

Things are quickly changing for today’s Democrats. One minute they’re rallying behind the old guard (represented by Nancy Pelosi and creepy “Chucky” Schumer), the next they’re clinging to young radicals like AOC. Who will prevail in the struggle to control the liberal party’s future?

Yes, The Southern Border Is At The Breaking Point

You know things are bad when the New York Times runs an article with the headline, “Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Unauthorized Migrants Cross in a Month.” We could quibble and point out they are illegal aliens, not “unauthorized migrants,” but why argue details when your enemies are finally helping you by telling the truth for a change?

Assault on America, Day 64: Presidents need a congressional check, not an abusive impediment

Some would argue it’s about time we had a national conversation on executive powers, but the Democrats’ resolution blocking Trump’s emergency declaration isn’t the right occasion. Senator Rand Paul isn’t wrong very often, but this is one position he’d be wise to reconsider.
