Now Is The Time To Win The War With Iran

Demonstrators have taken to the streets calling for Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down and for those responsible for shooting down the Ukrainian jetliner killing all 176 aboard prosecuted. The weakness of Iran’s system of Wilayat al-Faqih has never been more obvious and the opportunity to undermine it from within rarely greater.

Assault on America, Day 376: Impeachment sham the type of DC circus no one finds gratifying

There’s little doubting many Democrats now realize that impeachment has turned into a hopeless fiasco without any clear chance at redemption. With each moment that goes by Speaker Nancy Pelosi digs the hole a little deeper, a mistake voters aren’t likely to forget as the calendar moves towards election day.

Conservatives Split On War Powers

We are inclined to agree that raising the war powers issue at this time gives aid and comfort to the enemy – but the enemy in question is not Iran, it is the Democrats who want only to make points with their Trump-hating base and render President Trump impotent in the face of Iranian threats and aggression.

Assault on America, Day 373: Many signs point to disgraced early exit for ‘Pocahontas’ Warren

Successful presidential candidates must endure and survive the most thorough vetting of any job on earth. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren didn’t figure to be the sturdiest of candidates -- she can’t even get her background straight -- and the process exposed her as a wavering fraud. Will she exit after Iowa and New Hampshire?

Sorry Democrats, There Is A Trump Doctrine, And It’s A Good One

Despite what the Democrats and their media allies want Americans to believe about President Trump and his foreign policy, Trump has been remarkably consistent in his approach to rogue states, such as North Korea and Iran. And the Trump doctrine makes a lot more sense than sending them pallets of cash or refusing to engage with them and pretending they are not there.

Assault on America, Day 372: Is Biden right? Is Trump really damaging the ‘soul’ of America?

As long as President Trump succeeds in making inroads for the GOP with Democrat base constituencies, candidates like Joe Biden will continue accusing him of robbing the “soul” of the country. Politics is a dirty business -- and Trump has an extremely thick skin -- but Democrats should mind the tone of their charges.

Assault on America, Day 371: Trump to Congress: Read My Tweets; Dems don’t get it

No one disputes we’re living in interesting times. President Trump isn’t your prototypical president and today’s Democrats aren’t a conventional opposition. Trump was correct to suggest Democrats consult his Twitter feed for up-to-the-moment policy -- it’s one less source to subpoena and impeach.

Assault on America, Day 370: If eliminating an enemy is bad, what do Democrats think is good?

It’s not always a good thing when political opponents take opposite sides of an issue, such as last week’s drone strike that killed an Iranian general. In times of war, serious matters should engender national unity and at least earn a nod towards a president’s important decisions. Partisans need to be on the same page.

Assault on America, Day 369: Perspective, New Year’s resolutions and honoring good news

Political forecasters will continue seeing dark clouds on the 2020 horizon regardless of the positive outcomes among the citizenry. No one expects Trump or his adversaries to roll over and play dead. But at times like these, perspective is in order -- and that includes Trump’s critics and the insatiable media.

Assault on America, Day 366: One month and counting ‘til Iowans cull the Dem wannabe herd

Time will tell if there’s another Iowa shocker on the horizon in next month’s Democrat caucuses. Polls are up and down in the state, though opinions seem to have stabilized around the top four competitors. With impeachment still up in the air, the outcome could still be in doubt. We’ll find out soon enough.

Assault on America, Day 365: Trump & Congress must confront spending or we’re doomed

As long as President Trump and congressional leaders of both parties continue putting off doing anything about spending and the national debt, Americans will remain frustrated at the lack of action. It’s not a taxing and revenue issue, it’s a lack of political backbone. Will Trump step up to the plate?

Assault on America, Day 363: Auld lang syne and what holds the future on the doorstep of 2020

2020 is destined to be another memorable one in the annals of United States history. The presidential campaign and election will dominate the news cycles, one side will claim a mandate and the other will cry foul. What comes afterward will determine the fate of the country. Will we survive?

Assault on America, Day 362: How do you kill a presidential campaign stone dead? Ask Biden

No one ever claimed running for president was easy, and it’s brought low a number of good people as well as exposed frauds who just can’t keep their message straight. Joe Biden is telling liberals what they want to hear, but one can’t help but sense his days on the campaign trail are numbered.

Kim Jong-Un’s Dangerous Christmas Present For Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

With 28,500 U.S. troops and thousands of U.S. citizens in South Korea, many within artillery range of the DMZ, is Trump prepared to risk a clash that could ignite a second Korean War in the election year 2020? Much is on the line here. Kim’s challenge is ultimately about the credibility of the United States, which has treaty commitments and issued war guarantees to scores of nations in NATO Europe, the Mideast, and East Asia, but whose people have zero interest in any new war, especially a second Korean war. If the world sees that America is reluctant to face down or fight a North Korea that is threatening us, will they retain the old confidence that the United States will risk war for them?

Assault on America, Day 359: GOP establishment and Democrats are light years behind Trump

Neither the Democrats nor Trump’s few remaining intra-party GOP boo birds will change the outcome of impeachment or win the greater fight for the honest affections of the American People. This is one area where the establishment is most definitely not striking back; they might as well quit while they’re light years behind.

Assault on America, Day 358: Trump expands GOP base while Democrats pander to radicals

Both parties’ candidates pay a lot of attention to their base voters. It’s a myth to claim that Trump isn’t even trying to expand the GOP base -- he does it all the time through outreach to various interest groups and ethnic constituencies. In 2016 he said to black voters, “What do you have to lose?” It still rings true, and will likely be reflected in the 2020 election results.

Assault on America, Day 356: At Christmas, peace on earth, goodwill towards men and accountability for all

The furor over impeachment won’t magically go away. Christmas may be a time to think about higher concepts and honor the tranquility that living in the land of the free affords us, but Democrats will inevitably be held accountable for their actions. And 2020 is bound to be a heck of a year.

Assault on America, Day 355: Nothing new in Washington equates to arguments at the table

In “normal” times people wouldn’t allow politics or other extra-family subjects to ruin Christmas celebrations, but these days aren’t typical and Americans are angry about what’s going on in the nation’s capital. President Trump recently told Greta Thunberg to “chill” -- the same could be said for the rest of the world.

Assault on America, Day 352: Democrat sleep-aid candidates do L.A., and the nation nods off

This debate won’t move the needle much, if at all. If impeachment reaches the senate -- and that’s a big if at this point -- it could conceivably affect the outcomes in the early states. Christmas is almost here. The biggest gift Americans deserve is a rest from the political backbiting. Will they get it?

Assault on America, Day 351: Dem presidential wannabes battle Christmas and DC for notice

The only thing we know for certain is seven Democrat presidential candidates will take the stage tonight in Los Angeles. They’ll be a poor distraction away from the fireworks in Washington and holiday preparations Americans are making all across the country. This is definitely one scenario where “Nothing to see here” has a lot of resonance.
