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.

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?

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.
