Assault on America, Day 251: Trump leaves mark on GOP politics, but his agenda will endure

Conservative candidates needn’t fret over the day when Donald Trump leaves office and starts his post-presidency career tweeting and influencing GOP politics. As long as they keep Trump’s popular agenda in mind, they’ll be fine -- and avoid the wrath of The Donald at the same time.

Leave the fake forecasts to the professional fake forecasters

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Meteorologists are in the business of getting predictions wrong. Why else does anyone watch the weather news — except for the hilarity of watching them get it wrong day after day after day? They predict sunshine, grab your umbrella. Meteorologists are so deeply wedded to fake weather predictions that they make the Great Political Pundits of 2016 look like an army of Nostradamuses. Just when you think it can’t get any more ridiculous, the world of fake news collides with the world of fake weather forecasts. Who could have seen that coming? Certainly not the meteorologists or political pundits. Thank God for Donald J. Trump.

2020 May Be The Best Year In A Decade For Conservatives To Run For Congress

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Conservatives, if you, or someone you know, is interested in running for Congress, or any other political office, I urge you to recruit your team and file as soon as possible, the 2020 election is going to be a great year for conservatives.

Why America Is Losing The War In Afghanistan

We applaud President Trump's desire to bring our troops home from Afghanistan, but the news the White House had planned a secret meeting with Taliban leaders and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Camp David prompts us to republish a column from July 30, 2018 explaining why negotiating with the Taliban is folly.

Assault on America, Day 250: AOC, sleepless nights & the Democrat climate change alarmists

The 2020 election is about so much more than just the choice between Donald Trump and a yet-to-be-determined liberal opponent. If Democrats prevail, we’re a lot closer to making something like the Green New Deal a reality…an awfully high price to pay so AOC can get a night’s sleep.

In 2020 Trump Will Reduce the Blue Wall to Rubble

David Catron, The American Spectator

Trump voters won’t desert him next year, which means the crumbling blue ramparts will completely collapse in 2020. Trump could well win the Granite State this time, and that will knock another hole in the increasingly unstable ediface. Another state the Trump campaign plans to target is Nevada, which he lost by only two points in 2016. By winning all the states he won in 2016 plus Minnesota, Nevada, and New Hampshire, Trump will win re-election and reduce the fabled blue wall to rubble. Can you see any of Trump’s potential Democratic opponents stopping the wall’s demolition with pie-in the-sky promises while the economy continues to grow and create jobs?

Trump’s Base Fooled by Phony Populism? Hardly

Alan Tonelson, The American Conservative

Overlooked as usual when it was released in May, the latest version of the Labor Department’s quarterly County Employment and Wages reports contains abundant evidence that the Trump victory in 2016 has paid off handsomely for the everyday Americans who gave him his Electoral College margin. So far, it’s the Trump critics who have mainly been wrong-footed over how working- and middle-class voters have fared during his administration. And barring big changes in the economy’s direction, unless they start looking at the data rather than trafficking in their own biases, another Trump shock could be in store come next November.

Assault on America, Day 247: Chicken Little media gets it wrong -- Trump will win suburbs

It’s far too early for establishment consultants to predict Trump and the GOP’s congressional candidates will lose the once reliable suburban vote. True, bored media reporters need something to write about, but ultimately American voters will decide. Here’s thinking they’ll choose right.

Assault on America, Day 246: No magic mirror needed to see all 2020 Democrats are extreme

Informed political watchers don’t expect much different from next week’s third Democrat debate. Each candidate is extreme to say the least, a fact that will reveal itself the more they talk. Impeachment, a “Freedom Dividend” and Medicare for All will help demonstrate the point. Americans take note.

Is the Fed Meddling in Our Elections?

The Federal Reserve isn’t the only Deep State institution that would like to affect the 2020 election in opposition to President Trump – Silicon Valley comes quickly to mind as an equally malign influence – however, as our friend Dr. Ron Paul observed in a recent  column, they are not a state within a state in the same way that the Federal Reserve is.

Assault on America, Day 245: Is ‘Pocahontas’ Warren the new de facto Democrat 2020 leader?

Time will reveal whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s swelling campaign crowds indicate she’s the new de facto leader of the Democrat presidential primary race. One thing’s for sure -- liberals are taking a long hard look at each of the candidates, unsure of who could best compete with Donald Trump.

Let Them Howl, Boris!

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What motivates the world's democratic protesters and what propels the rise and welcome reception of the autocrats, the men of action, is not all that dissimilar. It is impatience, a sense that the regime is out of touch, that it does not reflect or respond to what people want, that it is torpid and cannot act decisively, that it does not “get things done,” that it is tedious and boring. Part of Trump’s appeal to his base is that people sense he feels exactly as they do. And they readily understand why he would not want to sit down at a G-7 gathering and gas endlessly about climate change.

Assault on America, Day 244: Trump’s 2020 focus must be fighting DC elite spending swamp

Spending is a Democrat problem and a Republican problem. Trump’s post-Mueller “enemy” could be the congressional big spenders from both parties. Talk about a winning electoral platform…and he’d have numerous things to Tweet about as well. Something to consider as we leap into the fall campaign season.

‘Sources Say’

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

The media’s hatred of Trump is destroying American journalism. “Get it first, get it right” was Wes Pruden’s motto as editor at the Washington Times, and woe be unto any reporter who got it wrong, especially on a big story. Only a fool would stake his credibility as a journalist on a wild tale based on a tip from a single anonymous source, but that’s the kind of foolishness we’ve come to expect from the liberal media in the Trump era. MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times — they all seem to be trying to outdo each other in a competition to squander whatever credibility they still have for the sake of their anti-Trump agenda.

Assault on America, Day 240: Which would save more lives, new gun laws or banning abortion?

Liberals can’t have it both ways. They can’t advocate for gun laws that theoretically might save lives and in the next breath favor abortion policies that stop hundreds of beating hearts every day. If saving even one life is truly worth it to them -- they should at least concede the hypocrisy.

Will Democrat ‘Super Delegates’ Save Gaffe-A-Minute Biden?

A significant group of “super delegates” coming out for Biden would signal donors that the Party elders have confidence in Biden’s ability to take on President Trump. Absent such an effort by the Democrats’ party leaders to tilt the nomination to Biden, it looks like Biden is fading and the race is moving toward an Elizabeth Warren vs. Bernie Sanders marathon.

Assault on America, Day 239: Liberal media can’t handle minorities who praise Donald Trump

As long as there’s a liberal establishment media there will be attempts to pack people in groups according to their alleged beliefs and voter preferences. Then someone like BET’s Robert Johnson says nice things about Trump and upsets the whole rigid classification scheme. Where does the truth lie?

Assault on America, Day 238: What do David Koch & Ruth Bader Ginsburg have in common?

The big picture surrounding a man’s life disappears whenever a conservative like David Koch passes away. Hypocritical liberals rush to bash the dead while facts reveal the dearly departed actually made numerous important contributions to humanity. Will the offensive slander never cease?

Assault on America, Day 237: Democrats and John Kasich, the candidates nobody cares about

The vast majority of presidential candidates run for ego reasons. History’s road is paved with men and women who thought they were exactly what the public was hoping for, a thirst for fame and notoriety that’s only quenched through harsh reality. 2020 features many such dreamers. Who will prevail?

Assault on America, Day 236: Media knocks Trump’s manner but America is tone-deaf

As long as Donald Trump remains president -- and probably long after he’s left the White House -- debate will continue on whether his “tone” is costing him and the GOP voter goodwill and support. Plenty of evidence shows the polls are wrong; we won’t find out for sure until Election Day 2020.
