Assault on America, Day 27: Catatonic GOP leaders own the next shutdown… if there is one

Next to the inability to fund the border wall, Republican leaders’ silence is the single most disappointing aspect of the struggle to control illegal immigration. Appearances mean things -- if McConnell and McCarthy are to join the fray it’s time to fish or cut bait. Fence-sitters lose every time.

Assault on America, Day 26: Media says Trump caved on wall, but it’s Democrats in the dark

Democrats’ intractable position on border wall funding will invariably force President Trump’s hand -- and that’s something Trump relishes. Democrats could be reasonable and accept the president’s compromise offer…or more likely end up with a wall on the border and nothing for their side.

Assault on America, Day 23: Trump and GOPers know without the wall, America soon may fall

President Trump’s new wall slogan may or may not sway the issue in his favor but he’s got to keep Republicans unified and in a fighting spirit on the border wall. Squandering this golden opportunity might not just mean the downfall of the GOP -- it could be the end of America, too.

Assault on America, Day 22: In Democrat-land, the prettier you are the smarter you become

The old saying goes that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but where Democrats are concerned a handsome countenance goes much farther than that. When trying to standout to the grossly uniformed and overly superficial Democrat base it pays to be a looker -- just ask Juan Williams.

Assault on America, Day 21: Long past time for a GOP scorched earth strategy on judge nominees

Try as they might, Democrats can’t delay everything forever, especially if Republicans grow a spine and make them participate in the process -- or they’ll just be steamrolled. Democrats play for keeps…it’s about time Republican leaders acknowledged it and countered fire with fire.

Assault on America, Day 20: Shutdown blame game a mundane prelude to 2020 fireworks show

There’s definitely a chance this government shutdown goes on so long people forget how or why it started and all that’s left are Trump and Democrat leaders squabbling over who’s at fault. Ultimately the American people will decide between them -- and time is on Trump’s side.

Assault on America, Day 19: Trump populism the new ticket to draining the putrid DC swamp

Donald Trump was elected president precisely because he understood what the people wanted -- and promised to give it to them. If this makes him a “populist,” it’s a mantle he’ll wear proudly. Democrats pledge free stuff, Trump offers prosperity and security. What will Americans choose in 2020?

Assault on America, Day 16: Snobby Pelosi SOTU stunt to backfire on grandstanding Dems

If you only saw the political elites you might think the State of our Union really isn’t strong. Under current leadership it’s okay to cancel national assemblies for pathetic personal vendettas and cheap political points, but the American people aren’t fools -- they want border security.

Assault on America, Day 15: RINOs & Dems whine and kvetch while border crisis boils

No amount of excuses RINOs like John Kasich or liberal Democrats make will change the facts on the border -- or anything else of consequence in today’s America. Republican and conservative policies work if they’re tried, something not possible with the DC swamp mentality.

Assault on America, Day 14: What exactly does Congress do, anyway?

The current impasse between congressional Democrats and President Trump was years in the making, primarily because GOP leaders of the recent past didn’t act to resolve it when they had the chance. If Trump gives in now we should only expect the cycle to repeat over and over again.

Leftist Judges Are Creating A Pre-Civil War America

The Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott decision authored by Democrat Chief Justice Roger B. Taney was the ultimate expression of the long-held Democrat Party belief that state officials elected as Democrats have the right to impose their will and their laws on the residents of other states.

Assault on America, Day 13: Democrat leaders backed in a corner, held hostage by crazed kooks

Democrat leaders are increasingly being held hostage by the open borders/anti-law enforcement kook fringe of their party. Unlike with President Trump’s position on the government shutdown, there are no good political options for them. The longer it draws out, the more they stand to lose.

Assault on America, Day 12: Since when is David Hogg qualified to assess national emergencies?

Democrats don’t care about law enforcement because if it’s done properly, they’d have no reason for being. Whether it’s enacting unnecessary gun purchasing restrictions or refusing to vote to secure the border, Democrats’ platform tramples on what many Americans hold sacred.

Assault on America, Day 9: DC swamp elites hate temper tantrums -- we should all throw one

“Chucky” Schumer will continue using President Trump’s temperament as an excuse not to act on a host of things, including the border wall, national security and the federal budget. Even if Trump threw a “temper tantrum” it was entirely justified. Maybe us citizens should follow his lead.

Assault on America, Day 8: Chuck & Nancy creep show falls flat before scared national onlookers

As amply demonstrated by Democrat leaders on Tuesday night they can’t even effectively convey their side of the argument, much less win on the merits. Regardless of how people feel about Trump they should separate fact from fiction on the border wall and the government shutdown.

Assault on America, Day 7: Style over substance is the way of the new Democrat House majority

As long as there’s a Democrat pretty face and an American establishment media to exploit it, expect more fawning and groveling over someone like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Style over substance or practicality is the way of the left -- the crazier the idea, the more they love it.

Assault on America, Day 6: How long will voter ignorance fuel Dems in shutdown tug-of-war?

Both sides blame the other for perpetuating the government shutdown. Democrats continue relying on the ignorance of voters to make their arguments stick, a situation where eventually good common sense should prevail. Trump can take matters into his own hands…should he?

Senator Lindsey Graham Makes A Great Point

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday, “We’ll have offers on the table when we find somebody that’s not crazy to deal with…” judging by what the Democrats’ leaders are saying it looks like it is going to be a long shutdown, if it can’t end until someone who is not crazy represents them at the negotiating table.

Assault on America, Day 5: Reaction to Romney op-ed tantrum shows RINOs on the run in DC

Joining with the enemy makes you a traitor and earns nothing but derision from decent people. If you don’t believe it ask (former) Senators Flake and Corker how they’re feeling these days. Mitt Romney will survive his latest brush with political death -- but he shouldn’t go tempting fate any longer.

Democrats Keep Their Promises

Much as we dislike the substance of the Democrats’ promises, as Republican Rep. Tom Reed’s flirtation with voting for the Democratic rules package demonstrates, it is hard to argue with the appeal of politicians who actually do what they say they will do, even if what they promise is a disaster waiting to happen.
