Assault on America, Day 233: Time, events and the Democrat Party have passed Obama by

No one ever said being on the political outside is easy, something former President Barack Obama is discovering. Obama lost his influence the minute he exited the Oval Office, so much so he couldn’t even convince his VP not to run and ruin his legacy. And there’s nothing he can do about it now.

Assault on America, Day 232: Trump’s trade tariffs deserve time -- and patience -- to work

Whether or not President Trump’s trade tariffs bring the world around, it was worth the effort to try and correct decades of imbalance between the U.S. and China. For far too long people merely complained about cheaters and theft -- Trump deserves credit for stepping up and doing something about it.

Assault on America, Day 231: Prepare for the ‘Office of White Supremacy’ if Dems win in 2020

Thanks to Booker and “Beto” the 2020 campaign just got that much nastier. We’re still over a year away from the fall general election contest and it promises to be the ugliest one on record. Democrats aren’t holding back anymore -- anyone who supports Trump is a “racist.” And you could end up on a watch list in the White House.

Assault on America, Day 230: Dem losers make great candidates for intra-party advancement

As long as there are elections there will be losers and a good share of them will be Democrats. Such candidates should take heart; their party not only sees them as unlucky and unfortunate, it also likely considers them good contenders for even higher offices. Stacy Abrams for VP? What a joke.

Assault on America, Day 229: Bar-B-Q, political choices and Dems -- a snapshot of life in 2019

Joaquin Castro likely did Texas based Bill Miller Bar-B-Q a favor (in the business sense) by publishing the name of its owner as a Trump backer. Texas conservatives’ response has been overwhelming -- but what does it say about our culture and society when it’s okay to potentially ruin someone’s existence over a political view? Think about it.

Assault on America, Day 226: If 2020 Democrat candidates were in training, they’d all be cut

With Joe Biden looking increasingly tired, careworn and unable to get his thoughts straight, Democrats have a heck of a problem. Like a football team with no one backing up an aging and failing quarterback, the party is desperately searching for another option -- and time is running out.

Assault on America, Day 225: Cultural retreat spells death for conservatives hoping to MAGA

Conservatives won’t realize cultural success until there’s a determined effort among those with a say to engage with liberals on their own turf and refuse to bow to political correctness wherever it’s found. Retreating before the battle is joined is the last thing we should do if we’re truly to Make America Great Again.

The Weirdness Of Lefty Tough Guys

One of the truly weird features of the modern Left, especially its major political candidates and media figures, is the propensity to utter physical threats against President Trump, his supporters and others on the Right. The strangest recent example of this testosterone-fueled Leftism was an altercation between CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and a person who approached him and referred to him as “Fredo” Cuomo.

Assault on America, Day 224: Does Biden really think being a minority equates to being poor?

Nearly as predictable as the tides, Joe Biden will keep making speeches and he’ll continue saying things that cause decent people to shake their heads. Democrats must decide whether they want a presidential nominee who seems to be slipping more and more as the days go on. What will they do?

Assault on America, Day 223: Americans buying guns is the rational response to mass shootings

Americans aren’t stupid; they see what’s happening in the country and can be trusted to take rational approaches to complex problems -- like purchasing a firearm for personal protection. The political class always jumps to conclusions, and often times they’re the wrong ones for the wrong reasons.

Assault on America, Day 222: Two years since Charlottesville and Dems haven’t learned a thing

It’d be great to say America’s learned a lesson in the two years since the deadly riot in central Virginia, but glancing around it certainly doesn’t look that way. Liberals are still attempting to pin blame for tragedies on the political leadership in the White House. And it ain’t working.

Joe Will Regret His Turn Onto the Race-Bait Road

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Biden’s raising of the race issue is going to come back and bite him. Said Joe in Iowa: “Our president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.” Yet, that greatest of the Founding Fathers, George Washington, whom Biden invoked as his beau ideal of a leader, was a slave owner and demonstrably more of a white supremacist than Trump. As for Wallace, whom Biden disparages, he was a segregationist, much like Biden’s patron, Sen. Jim Eastland of Mississippi, who called Joe “son,” and Strom Thurmond, whom Biden eulogized and who conducted the longest filibuster in history—against the 1957 Civil Rights Act.

Will 2020 Be a Repeat of 2004 for Democrats?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Biden, like Kerry, is an old political warhorse. For now, he poses as the Democratic establishment’s only safe bet. Like Kerry, Biden has lots of flaws, is an erratic campaigner, and is gaffe-prone. Yet Biden continues to poll as the front-runner, mostly because most Democratic voters realize that none of the scary hard-left alternatives have any chance against the hated Donald Trump. Fifteen years ago, the Democrats backed off from the hard left and took the safe route in nominating a boring and sedate party man. This time around, Democrats may have no choice but to try the 2004 formula again.

Assault on America, Day 219: Kamala Harris shows true meaning of political ‘flash in the pan’

It takes a lot for a politician to achieve electoral viability and sustain it through a grueling campaign -- and then maintain it once in office. Democrats like Kamala Harris can only get so far on surface characteristics alone, something several candidates are yet to discover in this year’s presidential race.

Can The Democrats Beat Trump With A Campaign Of Lies?

We agree with Rep. Gabbard that, in a field of noted prevaricators, Sen. Kamala Harris stands out as perhaps the biggest liar, but the fact of the matter is the Democratic Party’s entire campaign against President Trump is based on lies.

Assault on America, Day 218: ‘National White Male Lobotomy Day’ coming to your town

Democrats will do anything to win, and their suggestion of a special congressional look into “white nationalism” is as ridiculous as they come. In time someone will devise a reasonable way to stave off the next irrational attack. Until that time, maybe the politicians should just stay the heck away from DC.

Assault on America, Day 217: Why today’s pols shouldn’t try to compete for every possible vote

While it’s a good thing to say you’ll compete for every vote, closer analysis indicates it just isn’t possible. In today’s political climate there’s no such thing as the lowest common denominator; it’s best to take a position and defend it to the last and not worry about the naysayers. Just ask President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 216: American culture of death, not firearms, to blame for mass murders

Something’s definitely wrong in America when individuals set off on mass murder rampages. The challenge lies with identifying a true cause and devising solutions that are both politically palatable and will actually address the problems. Blaming guns or the president is the easy way out. Can’t we talk about the culture of death instead?

Joe Biden Gets Mugged By Multicultural Reality

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

For two hours, when the Democratic candidates were not attacking each other, they were piling on Joe. Biden eased some fears that he has lost more than a step as a presidential candidate. Yet this is not the same Joe who bested Mitt Romney’s vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, in 2012. Today, much of the career record of Joe Biden—his opposition to busing, his credentials as tough-on-crime, his support for NAFTA, his backing of the Iraq War, his career-long support of the Hyde Amendment—is seen not as a record to be proud of, but a record to be ashamed of, and a record to apologize for.

Assault on America, Day 215: Dems dump on Obama while Trump’s re-election prospects rise

It wouldn’t be a stretch to deem President Trump the “winner” of last week’s Democrat debates. The lifelong celebrity and social media master knows precisely which buttons to push to get his enemies attacking him -- and each other, too. It’s only August and already the Democrats are in deep trouble.
