Assault on America, Day 323: ‘Ol fashioned Butt-igieg kicking in Atlanta leaves voters guessing

After seeing the sorry cast of Democrat political characters perform again in Atlanta one can see why there are potential “white knight” candidates and “cherry picker” losers contemplating jumping in the race. To desperate liberals, it’s starting to look perfectly plausible to hoist a late thirties mid-size city mayor to the national party nomination.

Assault on America, Day 322: Fifth Democrat debate: impeachment, taxation & Pete Buttigieg

The Democrats aren’t making any headway on impeachment, their various “plans” are ridiculous and impractical and their catastrophic warnings about global warming and “climate change” won’t be well received by the shivering country enduring a heinous cold spell. But they have to fill a couple hours, don’t they?

Assault on America, Day 321: Why are doctors joining ‘morons’ to vote against Republicans?

One can’t help but think if the GOP doesn’t unite to fight back against the misinformation forces of the left that they’ll continue to lose once-loyal backers like doctors and medical professionals. Moving to the mushy center won’t help things. The “morons” are taking over and Republicans are clueless on how to stop it.

Assault on America, Day 320: Cherry pickers and white knights; 2020 Democrats in a nutshell

Whether it’s a “white knight” or “cherry picker” waiting in the wings, 2020 Democrats are showing signs of tangible unease as we move towards the primary season. Time is running out for the party to settle on a candidate to take on a very strong President Trump next year -- will they find one?

Assault on America, Day 317: Impeachment won’t stop Trump's quest to Keep America Great

Mark Sanford’s #NeverTrump fool’s errand was destined to fail from the outset. The Democrats’ stupid impeachment witch hunt isn’t the reason why Sanford couldn’t get anyone interested in his cause -- there never really was one to begin with. Trump’s fate will be decided by the voters in 2020… but his enemies will never quit.

Assault on America, Day 316: ‘Little Mike’ Bloomberg is no white knight for 2020 Democrats

The media is excited about the prospect of a Michael Bloomberg “white knight” presidential candidacy, but no one else -- including Democrats -- is. The former NYC mayor is too old, too rich and too out-of-touch to be taken seriously in the big picture. If Bloomberg tries it, it’ll only result in one more reputation ruined by national politics.

Assault on America, Day 315: Finding the next Trump proving impossible for talent-thin Dems

By no stretch of the imagination is Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren anything like President Donald Trump. Democrats could only hope their presidential choice would engender the types of political qualities and talents Trump possesses. The harder they search the more they realize it’s a monumental task.

It’s Not Republicans Who Are Reluctant to Accept Political Outcomes They Don’t Like

David Harsanyi, National Review

According to the Washington Post's Paul Waldman, Matt Bevin’s (completely legal) request to re-canvass the Kentucky election portends an unwillingness by the GOP to accept the results the democratic process. Talk about projection. Historically speaking, Republicans probably need to win 40+ states for Democrats to accept election results without controversy. John Kerry, and surely he’s not alone, still believes that George W. Bush stole Ohio in 2004 with his sentient Diebold machines. Prominent Democrats believe Bush stole the Florida in 2000 (a contest we know W. indisputably won.) Al Gore, you may remember, refused to concede. It’s different when Democrats do it.

Assault on America, Day 314: Do-nothing House Dems’ day of reckoning is coming… in 2020?

Democrats haven’t been honest with the American public and they’ve especially misled the people who put them in power in 2018 to unclog the legislative logjam of recent times. Instead of working with Trump and Republicans to pass positive laws, they’ve obstructed and obfuscated at every turn. It will catch up with them… but when?

Assault on America, Day 313: Poll shows Trump competitive in battleground states, Dems fret

Like the old saying suggests, bad news does travel fast. By now, Democrats must’ve received word that President Trump is more than competitive with them in many of the states they’d need to win next year. Trump will be on offense, Democrats on defense. Which candidate will hold the line?

Assault on America, Day 310: Political insanity the new normal regardless of 2020 outcome

It's a bit far-fetched to claim attitudes will return to normal after next year’s election, because “normal” doesn’t really exist anymore. Democrats claim Trump is the problem, but would their paranoid convulsions really be any less severe if a different Republican were in the White House? Not a chance.

Assault on America, Day 309: Stupid media blames Trump for Virginia’s vile Democrat swamp

Blaming President Trump is far too unsophisticated of an excuse for the media or self-labeled “experts” to explain the Republican Party’s decade-long slide in Virginia. For now, the Old Dominion looks lost to GOP control. There’s a dire need for a change in tactics. Can conservatives adapt?

A tale of two parties and their very different fields of candidates

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

The two most noticeable things about the Democratic field is that it’s heavily weighted toward those with congressional service who were elected from safe Democratic (and in some cases tiny) states. The 2016 Republican field was full of candidates who showed they could win tough general elections but weren’t so tested in Republican primaries. Most 2020 Democrats have a different problem: minimal vote-getting experience beyond the Democratic cocoon of densely packed central cities, sympathetic suburbs, and university towns. It’s a predictable problem for a party that didn’t win many offices beyond that cocoon during the Obama years.

Assault on America, Day 308: If idiot ‘Beto’ falls in the Democrat race, does he leave a mark?

It's doubtful anyone outside of “Beto” O’Rourke’s own narrow sphere gave a hoot about his pulling out of the Democrat primary race. As the months go by it’s clear the contest is down to a three or four candidate grudge match. Then the winner gets to take on a newly bolstered President Trump. Any way you slice it, it’s ugly for Democrats.

Assault on America, Day 307: What do Virginia & California have in common? We’ll know today

It’s heartbreaking to think Virginia could be going the liberal way of the Golden State. What would the Founding Fathers think? Medicaid expansion? Abortion on demand up to the moment of birth? Transgender public restrooms? This could be the Old Dominion’s future if Democrats achieve their aims today. California, here we come.

Assault on America, Day 306: For Democrats and the odious media, it’s too late to apologize

In most situations apologizing for wronging someone is a good thing, but it certainly doesn’t apply to the present circumstances involving President Donald Trump and his wicked impeachment detractors. If anything, the Democrats should apologize for dragging the nation through this farce. Don’t hold your breath waiting for it…it’s too late.

Assault on America, Day 303: Voter interest in Amy Klobuchar compares to a one-day sale

American voters like to “shop” candidates and we’re still a long way from folks hauling out their political credit cards and making a purchase. The media likes to suggest Democrats are giving Sen. Amy Klobuchar a long hard look -- but there’s no way the “moderate” label sticks to the woman. Any shopping curiosity ends soon.

Assault on America, Day 302: Petty partisan divide the scariest part of Halloween, 2019

Politics in 2019 is a nasty business -- frightening to many -- and it doesn’t figure to improve over the course of the next year. Be it in the suburbs or at a World Series game, passions and emotions have a tendency to get the better of some people. Halloween once was a time for fun. Is it still?

Assault on America, Day 301: Jane Fonda and Dems give new meaning to ‘Nothing to See Here’

Wherever there are famous people pulling stupid stunts (like Jane Fonda getting arrested every week to “raise awareness” on climate change), there will be establishment media sources close by seeking sensationalism and something to talk about. If people would simply stop watching… perhaps the absurdity would cease.

Care About Impeachment When They Have 67 Senators

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

This coup d’twerps is not about right or wrong, nor fact or evidence, and never was. Though he didn’t, Trump should have affirmatively conditioned Ukrainian military aid on that corrupt country ferreting out the truth about why snortunate son Hunter was getting a prima facie corrupt payoff from a foreign oligarch. That’s irrelevant. The Democrats know they can’t beat Trump through the political process, or through the legal process, so they are simply going to try to manufacture a façade of high crimes and misdemeanors and take him out purely because they can. If they can. It’s a gang fight we will win. The future belongs to those who can count.
