Assault on America, Day 194: When it comes to Democrat nut-jobs, Tom Steyer takes 1st prize

Tom Steyer’s entrance into the Democrat presidential race will shake things up -- for a while -- but it’s impossible to tell how he will impact the long-term results. Like all Democrat candidates, Steyer lacks a reason for existing -- and they all look like dull pewter compared to solid gold Donald Trump.

Assault on America, Day 191: Leftists champion losers while dissing Thomas Jefferson’s holiday

Honoring the Founding Fathers and the United States flag should be a no-brainer for Americans, but the cultural rot that’s relentlessly advanced by the left is present all around us. At the very least the past deserves respect and educated perspective. Is it really too much to ask today?

Assault on America, Day 190: How many GOPers will follow Justin Amash out of Republican-land?

Justin Amash won his fifteen minutes of fame when he bolted from the Republican Party last week, but will anyone think about him six months from now? As a member of the GOP, Amash had a platform to speak as an outsider; now he’s just a political eccentric without a voice and no friends.

Assault on America, Day 189: Party pooper 2020 Dems belittle national joy and military honors

It does seem possible to run out of things to complain about, especially if you’re talking about President Trump, the American economy and the successful recovery from eight years of incompetence and malfeasance under Barack Obama. Americans are starting to pay attention -- what will they see?

Assault on America, Day 188: Radicalism and tyranny to define the next Democrat president

Conservatives should be willing to put their money where their mouth is next year when President Trump takes on his socialistic out-of-touch Democrat opponent. Democrat presidential candidates have sworn they’ll accomplish their aims by any means necessary. Would the republic survive?

Assault on America, Day 187: Independence Day and the crisis in Democrat electoral confidence

Independence Day means more than an excuse to get together with friends, consume adult beverages and host outdoor barbecues. It’s a time to reflect on the value of freedom and truth -- and the threats to those precious rights we’re seeing right now from Democrats of all ages.

Assault on America, Day 182: Would Portland's authorities care if Antifa killed someone?

There’s virtually no end to the hypocrisy propounded by the left. And it’s not just the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates doing the holier-than-thou value judging -- it’s anyone arguing people deserve punishment for their political beliefs. Where does it go from here? We’re almost afraid to find out.

Trump proves critics wrong as he advances his North Korea policy with Kim meeting

Fred Fleitz, Fox News

The talks could easily stall or fail again. Trump’s negotiators also know that given North Korea’s long record of violating prior agreements, a new agreement will have to be ironclad. with extremely strong verification provisions. Perhaps Kim will never choose to walk through that door. But perhaps the confidence-building that President Trump has initiated with his personal diplomacy will convince Kim to make a denuclearization deal that formally ends hostilities and allows North Korea to join the community of nations. All Americans should hope President Trump succeeds, because his success in this important endeavor would enhance U.S. national security.

Assault on America, Day 181: Joe Biden is no racist, but he’s got plenty of other disorders

Political pundits are paid big bucks to make mountains out of molehills, and that’s exactly what took place last week in raking Joe Biden over hot coals for his feeble response to Kamala Harris’s “That little girl was me” monologue. Biden’s past will follow him alright, but not because of racism.

Assault on America, Day 180: Democrats are more than an obstacle to sanity, they’re a burden

Last week Democrats demonstrated they’ll stop at nothing to defeat President Trump next year, including raising phony concerns that he won’t leave office when the time comes and also by withholding money to simply execute America’s immigration laws. All in all, a shameful display.

Assault on America, Day 177: That’s it? America groans as filled-out Dem field fails to astound

America breathed a sigh of relief as the Democrat presidential candidates wrapped up their first “debates” of the 2020 cycle. Predictably, nothing much was ventured, nothing gained. Joe Biden will keep leading until he shoots himself in the foot -- or Democrats dump all of them and start over.

Assault on America, Day 176: First ten Dems debate, the winner is caffeine & anti-depressants

The only thing that was conclusively proven on Wednesday night was the Democrats will struggle to nominate a candidate who can match the prominence of Donald Trump. Trump may not be universally popular, but everybody knows him -- more than can be said for this sorry bunch of Democrat wannabes.

Assault on America, Day 175: It’s here! 2020 Democrats open (rhetorical) fire on each other!

If history is a guide, tonight’s and tomorrow night’s Democrat debates won’t do much to change the dynamic in the party race -- or American politics in general. This week marks the beginning of the official process, the opening salvos in what will be a very long war to win the election.

Assault on America, Day 174: D’s and R’s dump millions to wage a messaging war in 2020

As with every campaign, messaging will be extremely important in 2020. Democrats will vie for the title of most extreme and liberal to please primary voters and President Trump will continue to preside over the GOP, the two parties preparing for an all-out messaging war in the coming months.

Assault on America, Day 173: Hollywood liberals make hay over illegal aliens’ beating hearts

Liberals like Alyssa Milano should be careful about attaching the “hypocrite” label to anyone, much less those who are pro-life protectors of the unborn. Neither the immigration issue nor the culture war will be decided by outspoken Hollywood actors. American voters will notice, too.

Assault on America, Day 170: Desperate Dem candidates crawl over broken glass to draw looks

Crazy plans are in abundance these days as Democrat presidential candidates hit the campaign trail hard hoping to draw notice from party voters -- and more importantly, the sensationalism hungry media. Corey Booker and “Beto” O’Rourke probably won’t get far, but they’ll sure jump through hoops to get a TV spot.

Assault on America, Day 169: Trump train rolled through Orlando, Democrats left tied to track

A year from now when both parties are gearing up for their nominating conventions few will remember what was done or said at Tuesday night’s Trump reelection announcement rally. People will be too focused on choosing between the candidates then -- and Trump will definitely come out ahead.

Assault on America, Day 168: Americans brace for the 2020 Democrat debates. Will they matter?

Party primary debates can make a big difference in every campaign cycle, but only if the candidates are already well known or find a unique way to present themselves. Issues always take a backseat at such “beauty contest” media sideshows. Will next week’s Democrat forums prove any different?

Assault on America, Day 167: It’s official, Trump is running in 2020 -- he’s in it to win it

President Trump officially launches his 2020 campaign tonight. As they’ve done throughout his four-year political career, the media will feed off of the interest the event generates, then bash him relentlessly afterwards. Trump won’t care -- he and his tens of thousands of backers will have the time of their lives.

Assault on America, Day 166: With debts mounting, how much should Americans provide?

With Democrats like Bernie Sanders campaigning on the necessity to spend more to provide a higher standard of living for everyone, it’s about time Americans had a conversation about the difference between “needs” and “wants.” Don’t trust a big spending politician to explain the distinction.
