Assault on America, Day 118: Mind-numbed media wouldn't survive without Donald Trump

The media will maintain their Trump fascination as long as the president continues to draw people towards him. Some loath Trump, others adore him. Similarly, the 2020 Democrat candidates can’t win without stealing some of the attention Trump gets. How will it balance out?

Assault on America, Day 117: Joe (race) Biden (race), Democrat (race) for (race) President!

A thorough perusal of the Democrat presidential candidate menu reveals a collection of entrees that will either make Americans ill or put them to sleep. Joe Biden may be the special du jour but beneath his provocative ingredient description lies a man who doesn’t have a clue why he’s even running.

Assault on America, Day 114: Pocahontas Warren’s bizarre student loan payoff ploy will flop

Elizabeth Warren is buried in the lower echelon of 2020 Democrat presidential candidates, which should result in a host of crazy proposals intended to gain traction with the party base. Be it with paying off everyone’s student loans or nationalizing marijuana, “Pocahontas” is flat out of her mind.

New Gallup Poll: Government And Immigration Top Voter Concerns

Immigration is the top concern of Republicans. While this highlights the difficulty of finding a bipartisan solution to the issue, it also suggests immigration will be an important election issue for Republicans, and one the president and GOP should use to drive turnout and support for Trump in 2020.

Assault on America, Day 113: Rush Limbaugh, Trump and the non-greatness of Tiger Woods

Real heroes are parents who toil in relative anonymity, known only to those in their immediate circles. Or military men and women who risk their lives for us. Or border patrol agents and policemen who do their jobs out of service and love. Does Tiger Woods fit in the same “greatness” category? You decide.

We Need Supply Side Warrior Steve Moore On The Fed Board

We strongly support Stephen Moore for the Fed Board and urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators today (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to urge them to vote to confirm Steve Moore when his nomination to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors comes before the Senate.

Mexican Military Now Patrolling North Of The Border, US Sovereignty Violated Repeatedly

While two American soldiers were parked south of the border fence, but north of the Rio Grande riverbed, placing them “appropriately in U.S. territory,” five or six Mexican soldiers approached with FX-05 Xiuhcoatl rifles, ordered them out of their vehicle and disarmed one of the Americans. This is just the latest in more than 500 Mexican military border violations in the past decade.

Assault on America, Day 112: What kind of team bans ‘God Bless America’ due to 1930s satire?

It’s sad that few probably noticed the New York Yankees’ removal of Kate Smith’s classic “God Bless America” from the seventh inning stretch. It’s even worse the team felt a need to do it based on events from a different time and mindset. Such is the way of the politically correct.

Assault on America, Day 111: Why America will never fall for ‘President Pete’ or Oprah’s guru

While it’s true any natural born American citizen over the age of 35 (and having lived in the U.S. for 14 years) is eligible to be president, it takes a lot more than a few interesting personal chits to realize the dream. Pete Buttigieg and Marianne Williamson are not typical Democrats -- and their candidacies are a punchline.

Assault on America, Day 110: Nauseated GOPers sickened by Mitt Romney’s bashing of Trump

Thankfully no one pays any attention to what Mitt Romney thinks these days. Perhaps he should realize it and cease taking cheap shots at a president who is keeping the party’s promises and faces what is sure to be a serious leftist socialist Democrat challenger next year. Can’t Mitt just shut up?

My Op-Ed In The Hill: Why Ken Cuccinelli should be Trump's choice for DHS

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already expressed opposition to Cuccinelli, who as president of the Senate Conservatives Fund led primary challenges to K Street-controlled, establishment Republicans. McConnell, therefore, may have a grudge, but one not based in Cuccinelli’s fitness for the job.

Assault on America, Day 106: Easter, American politics and the hope of resurrection & recovery

Easter reminds us of the power of redemption and second comings, particularly relevant this year with the tragic near-destruction of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. American politics could see some surprising comebacks of its own next year, in Alabama and in nationwide House races. Stay tuned.

Assault on America, Day 105: GOP establishment remains Trump’s most visible 2020 opponent

Instead of joining President Trump in his relentless drive to steer American government back towards its constitutional limits, the Republican establishment is taking the opposite approach. It just goes to show, it’ll take much longer than four years to change the rotten culture in Washington.

Assault on America, Day 104: Both R’s and D’s can’t get their arms around the media’s lies

Democrats and Republicans will never view the media the same way, though at times both parties have beefs with how reporters handle issues. All politicians wish the media would pass along facts without embellishment, but fiscally speaking, it’s an ugly picture any way you look at it.

Assault on America, Day 103: Shortage of DC true believers threatens Trump’s MAGA mission

It could be said Washington DC’s biggest problem is its shortage of true believers, accountable people who devote themselves to the political leadership’s mission and willingly endure hardships and establishment ridicule to get things done. With Trump, the half-committed need not apply.

Mitch McConnell Opposes Nominees Who Agree With President Trump

Mitch McConnell opposes Ken Cuccinelli for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security precisely because Cuccinelli agrees with Trump, and the last person an establishment Chamber of Commerce-type Republican like Mitch McConnell wants running DHS is someone who actually believes in and will fight for the Trump border security agenda.

Assault on America, Day 100: Obama’s ‘Circular firing squad’ comparison taints 2020 Democrats

Primary campaigns are always contentious, especially in times of flux. Democrats aren’t going through anything now that Republicans didn’t experience just a few years ago. If Obama -- or anyone else -- thinks next year should turn into an intra-party love fest… he’s in for a rude awakening.

RAISE Act Introduced, Cuts Immigration Numbers, Makes Merit Top Priority

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to urge them to co-sponsor the RAISE Act and to ask the congressional leadership to bring it swiftly to the floor for a vote.

Assault on America, Day 99: Does anyone think Oprah or LeBron deserve slavery reparations?

It isn’t often we foresee the negative consequences of a government policy as clearly as we do with slavery reparations. The individuals who suffered under the “peculiar institution” -- and those who inflicted the pain -- are long since beyond reach. No “compensation” today would make anyone whole.

Assault on America, Day 98: Generic Democrats and Pelosi’s minions can’t stop Trump train

Pundits’ analysis and poll results shed little useful light on the 2020 presidential race over a year and a half before America chooses its next president. Donald Trump will be there, paired against a Democrat with his or her own apple cart full of problems. Nothing is “generic” in politics today.
