Assault on America, Day 106: Easter, American politics and the hope of resurrection & recovery

Easter reminds us of the power of redemption and second comings, particularly relevant this year with the tragic near-destruction of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. American politics could see some surprising comebacks of its own next year, in Alabama and in nationwide House races. Stay tuned.

Assault on America, Day 105: GOP establishment remains Trump’s most visible 2020 opponent

Instead of joining President Trump in his relentless drive to steer American government back towards its constitutional limits, the Republican establishment is taking the opposite approach. It just goes to show, it’ll take much longer than four years to change the rotten culture in Washington.

Assault on America, Day 104: Both R’s and D’s can’t get their arms around the media’s lies

Democrats and Republicans will never view the media the same way, though at times both parties have beefs with how reporters handle issues. All politicians wish the media would pass along facts without embellishment, but fiscally speaking, it’s an ugly picture any way you look at it.

Assault on America, Day 103: Shortage of DC true believers threatens Trump’s MAGA mission

It could be said Washington DC’s biggest problem is its shortage of true believers, accountable people who devote themselves to the political leadership’s mission and willingly endure hardships and establishment ridicule to get things done. With Trump, the half-committed need not apply.

Assault on America, Day 100: Obama’s ‘Circular firing squad’ comparison taints 2020 Democrats

Primary campaigns are always contentious, especially in times of flux. Democrats aren’t going through anything now that Republicans didn’t experience just a few years ago. If Obama -- or anyone else -- thinks next year should turn into an intra-party love fest… he’s in for a rude awakening.

Assault on America, Day 99: Does anyone think Oprah or LeBron deserve slavery reparations?

It isn’t often we foresee the negative consequences of a government policy as clearly as we do with slavery reparations. The individuals who suffered under the “peculiar institution” -- and those who inflicted the pain -- are long since beyond reach. No “compensation” today would make anyone whole.

Joe Biden Needs A Hug

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Biden has got to be wondering how his decades-long free pass (a guy familiar with Delaware politics told me “There’s not a female fanny in the state that doesn’t have Joe’s paw-print on it.”) morphed into a campaign death warrant overnight. But that’s the nature of social justice warriorism – it’s a weapon designed to take out enemies by making it impossible to stay in accord with the rules because the rules keep changing and you don’t find out until you get dragged into the liberal kangaroo court and condemned. Welcome to the world you helped create with Anita Hill, Joe. It couldn’t happen to a fake-nicer guy.

One foolish remark and a presidential candidate is toast

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Joe Biden's hugs and massages diverted the attention of the ever-dozing media to the really chilling things he said in a speech the other day at the Russian Tea Room in Manhattan. He was trying to offer a full grovel to the radical feminists for his close questioning of Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings in the previous century. He’s apparently willing to sacrifice America’s crown jewels to make the benighted ladies feel better. The trouble with America is the white man, good old Joe said. The political culture of centuries of dreadful white men in charge has encouraged violence against women, and Joe knows why.

Assault on America, Day 98: Generic Democrats and Pelosi’s minions can’t stop Trump train

Pundits’ analysis and poll results shed little useful light on the 2020 presidential race over a year and a half before America chooses its next president. Donald Trump will be there, paired against a Democrat with his or her own apple cart full of problems. Nothing is “generic” in politics today.

Face it: Biden and Bernie are too old to be president

Byron York, Washington Examiner

They are too old to occupy the nation's highest office, not because they are out of touch or because their records are out of line with today's sensibilities, but because they are just too old. For those who respond, "Well, what about Trump?" remember: If the president serves two terms, he will leave the White House at 78, the oldest ever in office. But that is the age Biden would begin his presidency. And Sanders is a year older. Will Democrats will realize that and will nominate a candidate who draws a clear generational contrast with President Trump?

Assault on America, Day 97: Beto’s talent for B.S. suggests he’ll thrive in 2020 Dem primaries

Politicians bend facts to bolster claims of knowing more than competitors and opponents, hence providing a basis for choosing them over the others. Beto O’Rourke’s proving especially adept at spinning tall tales, which indicates he should do very well in next year’s Democrat primaries.

Social Justice for Creepy Joe

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

Joe Biden isn’t kind, and he’s not compassionate. He’s a garden-variety attention-whore hack politician with personal habits tending toward depravity, and if he’s gobbled up by the left-wing mob before he can touch off yet another failed presidential run, it is of no particular abomination to the right side of the political fence. Biden made his bed, and made it again and again. Let him lie in it. When someone worth defending against the #MeToo mob is accused, let that be a time to push back against #MeToo excesses. Not this. This is Social Justice in its true form.

Assault on America, Day 96: Which side of the border crisis are Democrats and the media on?

We can’t depend on the media to report on the true situation at the border and the impossible negotiating position Congress forced on President Trump. Closing the border is the last and most drastic step to finally move Trump’s opponents off their rocks. Will they ever do it?

Assault on America, Day 93: Will Trump wrestle healthcare momentum away from Dems in 2020?

By urging the senate to revisit the possibility of repealing and replacing Obamacare, President Trump made a political move to assure the public he hasn’t forgotten about the issue ahead of next year’s election. Ruling class Republicans and Democrats take note -- Trump means what he says.

When Joe Biden Is Suddenly Creepy

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Biden is leading in many polls, and that's a problem for the radicals who perceive that he's not leftist enough. He's not perceived to be as leftist as Sanders. He's not perceived to be as leftist as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He may rate a 99 percent on the left, but it is looking for 103 percent. The No. 1 "journalism" objective in 2020 is beating President Trump. They are clearly seeking to remove the biggest obstacle to an American socialist revolution. Democrats who don't march in lockstep may be yesterday's news.

The return of a familiar hypocrisy among Democrats as they defend Biden

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

We have never seen him kissing male supporters on the mouth. We don’t see him sniffing like a dog on the street at the hair of another man. The issue is not his intention, it’s behavior that we all know is wrong and inappropriate. What we should be concerned about in this case and so many others is the fact that this went on for so long, allowing someone like Joe Biden to excuse it in his own mind as acceptable. Here’s a newsflash I thought unnecessary for the 21st century: It’s not what the perpetrator is thinking, it’s what he’s doing and what the women being targeted are experiencing.

Assault on America, Day 92: Why Conservatives cower in shadows at today’s liberal colleges

One can only hope free speech conditions improve for young conservatives on college campuses, and President Trump will do everything in his power to make sure of it. In America, no one should fear for their reputation or safety simply by identifying themselves. What is this, North Korea?

Why segregation is the only way to save the women

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Who could have guessed that so many grown women wouldn’t know how to deal with hair-do sniffers and nose-rubbers. Not all snowflakes live on a college campus. A way must be found to separate men and women. Women must not be forced to live under lascivious gazes and endure sweaty kisses and hard rubs. Women who once withered seduction with a fierce frown, now need help for their granddaughters. How to do it, and still get great-granddaughters, must be the decisive issue of the 2020 campaign.

Assault on America, Day 91: Joe Biden just the latest creep calling the Democrat Party home

Chances are Joe Biden’s inappropriate conduct won’t derail his chances in the Democrat primaries, but there’s no doubt he’d emerge as damaged goods heading into the 2020 general election. A #MeToo driven party like the Democrats would be better served by staying (far) away.

Biden: Uneasy, Gross, and Confused

Joe Biden’s actions toward women, as documented in numerous photographs, videos and published recollections are indeed bizarre and discomfiting, but what should really make Americans feel “uneasy, gross and confused” are Lunch Bucket Joe’s 40+ years of being wrong on every issue and using shameless lies and the politics of personal destruction to promote himself.
