Assault on America, Day 402: Democrat NH debate -- Anger and Racism ain’t gonna do it

New Hampshire Democrats head to the polls in a few days and they’ll need to decide between the emerging party socialistic trend -- as embodied by Bernie Sanders -- and the establishment status quo (Joe Biden?). Pete Buttigieg is a possible alternative to Biden, but he didn’t inspire much confidence on Friday night. It’s certainly not an easy political dilemma for Granite State voters.

Assault on America, Day 401: Are Trump’s fans as tired of winning as Democrats are of losing?

Even a good many Democrats would admit it’s been a rough go of it lately, with President Donald Trump not only surviving their best shots, he’s actually making inroads with voters who heretofore wouldn’t consider choosing Republicans. Which begs the question: Are Trump’s fans as tired of winning as Democrats are of losing?

Assault on America, Day 400: What to expect post-impeachment. A bestseller won’t reveal

Though no one truly knows what to expect now that Trump’s impeachment has been relegated to the trash heap of history, one scenario seems likely: Trump’s base has been activated and energized months earlier than in a normal election year and Democrats are in despair from failure. Who will win in the end? You be the judge.

Assault on America, Day 399: Magnanimous Trump wows Congress and country with SOTU

Every year the president’s State of the Union Address receives more than its share of commentary from the media and punditry, but Trump’s latest iteration might have more staying power than most. The magnanimous president faced real challenges on Tuesday evening and overcame them all. A very Trumpian performance, indeed.

Assault on America, Day 398: What would have happened in Iowa if Democrats could count

Democrats should enjoy their one day of public-attention grabbing fun because all eyes shift back to Washington tonight to see how President Trump will handle his State-of-The-Union address flanked by his not-so-loyal opposition in the last gasps of a doomed impeachment trial. Will Bernie Sanders show up? No matter; he’s already full of glory after Iowa.

Assault on America, Day 397: Would a Sanders Iowa win launch a Dem version of #NeverBernie?

Bernie Sanders could easily end up on November’s ballot. And it all begins tonight in Iowa where Hawkeye State residents have had a good long look at the Democrat party candidate offerings. The political world just might be about to be turned upside-down, a development many would welcome. It’s all over but the voting.

Assault on America, Day 394: Conservatives to RINOs: We got no more use for you guys

The more time passes the clearer it becomes that #NeverTrumpers don’t have a leg to stand on -- or, as Vincent LaGuardia Gambini might say, “I got no more use for this guy”. Next week begins the process of selecting a Democrat opponent for Trump. Can he or she count on help from the Republican resistance?

Assault on America, Day 393: ‘Hi, I’m Mike Bloomberg, and I accept the Dem nomination’

These are strange days when a candidate creates a large following by skipping most of the traditional party nominating process events, but Mike Bloomberg appears to be doing it. Democrats aren’t nearly as unified as the media would have Americans believe, a problem Trump doesn’t need to worry about.

Assault on America, Day 392: Hold your Iowa bets, every horse in the 2020 Dem field is a nag

Bernie Sanders would be dreadful as president. But would he be more appalling than Biden, Warren, Buttigieg or Klobuchar? At best, there’re slight differences between all of them. The chances of an Iowa “shocker” probably aren’t good this year -- but every one of the Democrats is truly alarming.

Assault on America, Day 391: Democrats aren’t the only ones counting on a yuge Iowa turnout

Agricultural interests in places like Iowa and Ohio recognize administration policies are paying off. And that’s the reason why voters will show up on Caucus Night even if they already know the outcome. Like with the Democrat presidential hopefuls, Trump’s 2020 effort kicks off in Iowa. It’s the start of something good.

Assault on America, Day 390: Sizeable fissures emerge in the media’s Democrat unity wall

With the impeachment trial droning on in Washington and the Iowa caucuses only a couple weeks away, Democrats will be hard pressed to maintain some semblance of togetherness heading into a very stressful few months. Will Bernie Sanders’ attacks on Joe Biden have an effect? We’ll soon find out.

Assault on America, Day 387: To Trump’s foes, great victories and progress aren’t presidential

Common sense is in scarce supply in our times when Democrats and #NeverTrumpers cite Trump’s behavior as causing the sorry state of American politics today. Blaming Trump for his own impeachment is akin to condemning an innocent man because you don’t like his haircut. It’s a lesson Trump’s critics should’ve learned by now.

Assault on America, Day 386: God-given rights, Democrats, and the meaning of peaceful protest

These are strange times when the government fears the rights-respecting public and declares a “State of Emergency” when groups of law-abiding citizens exercise their freedoms. Virginia serves as a shining example for the rest of the country on how bad things will happen when Democrats assume the reins of power.

Assault on America, Day 385: Inauguration Day is less than a year away. Will it be Trump X 2?

With impeachment in the rearview mirror, Trump can then go back to tweeting about falling unemployment and foreign policy and energy production and advancing the country’s economic standing. And trade deals. Or continuing to crackdown on illegal immigration. It’s the stuff of victory, isn’t it? We’ll see on Inauguration Day next year.

Assault on America, Day 384: Schiff and Dems’ sensational sham trial won’t get anyone to watch

Regardless of the way individual senators eventually vote on impeachment, this week’s beginning of the trial will be an overly contrived -- but not all that interesting -- show designed to sway public opinion. Will Americans bother to tune-in to something they’ve already been bombarded with for years?

Assault on America, Day 383: Impeachment farce will sound Democrats’ death knell in November

Democrats can have it as dirty as they want with impeachment. If they insist on dragging the trial out, it will not only engulf Trump’s state of the union address, it will swamp their early state primaries as well. In the meantime, nothing will get accomplished and voters will be angry enough to vent come Election day. Bring it on.

Assault on America, Day 380: Democrat physics lesson shows Bernie and Liz can’t share space

It doesn’t take a legendary physicist to suggest two politicians can’t both occupy the same space at the same time. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have been walking a fine line since the beginning of the Democrat presidential race. With a little over two weeks to go until Iowa, the pressure is mounting on both of them.

Assault on America, Day 379: Awful Virginia Democrat gun grab begs for a Trumpian retort

The presidential election is still months away and there’s much that can and will happen between now and then to influence it, but President Trump can help his cause today by highlighting the awful Democrat-led gun grab in Virginia. By doing so, the commonwealth might just go back to being a red state, too.

Assault on America, Day 378: Democrat debate shows worst place to be on February 3 is in Iowa

America is watching. The more Democrats talk, the better it is for Trump. The Trump campaign should advocate for a short impeachment trial to encourage his Democrat opposition to remain in the spotlight. Sometimes doing less actually accomplishes more. Iowa Democrats have a heck of a hard choice on February 3.

Assault on America, Day 377: Are they serious? Will Bernie Sanders really win in Iowa?

Tonight’s seventh Democrat debate will probably be much like the previous six editions, only even whiter and more contentious. The dividing line between the liberal candidates is clearer than ever and the top tier is digging-in for a final push to Iowa. Will Bernie blow a gasket tonight? We all want to know.
