Assault on America, Day 555: Seeking a cure for America’s addiction to systemic liberalism

There’s little doubt systemic liberalism exists in many parts of America today, particularly in large cities, the logical result of politicians with good intentions but insufficient wisdom to govern effectively. Radical separatist groups such as Black Lives Matter have altered the landscape of American politics -- and voters must wise-up before it’s too late.

Assault on America, Day 554: Are leftists using Biden as a Trojan Horse for a true believer?

Time will tell whether Grampa Joe Biden’s candidacy is serving as a sham intended to sneak a leftist vice-presidential candidate into the Oval Office without having been elected to the position. With the Democrat nominee-to-be demonstrating more and more signs of mental incapacity, something’s got to give -- and very soon.

Assault on America, Day 553: Trump touts a Garden of Heroes, Biden counters with racism

President Trump’s idea to create a “National Garden of American Heroes” was a stroke of brilliance for a lagging campaign that needed a new and fresh rallying point after months of health scare panic and political violence. Joe Biden can’t hope to match Trump’s positive message of reverence for all of American history. Trump is back on the right path.

Assault on America, Day 552: Americans get nowhere by taking media version of new normal

It has indeed been a long time since we’ve felt “normal” in America, and there’s a vast difference of opinion as to whether we’ll ever reach that level of comfort again. Truth and facts are always our best allies, but if the mainstream establishment media won’t deliver them, then it’s up to the rest of us to get the word out.

Assault on America, Day 551: What’s Joe doing down there in the basement? We want to know

With the presidential nominee hardly ever seen these days one can only imagine what’s going on behind closed doors in the Biden basement. Be it the renaming of Washington DC or strategizing on how best to keep their man boxed-in for another four months, Democrats will eventually have to face real campaign vetting. Their day of reckoning is coming.

Assault on America, Day 547: Founding Fathers vs. Marxist #BlackLivesMatter, a comparison

In normal times, Independence Day was something all Americans would honor if not celebrate. But as has been demonstrated a lot recently, there are many in this country who seek to trash and remove the past. We can’t allow them. The proponents of Black Lives Matter are nothing like the Founding Fathers. Now more than ever, we recognize it.

Assault on America, Day 546: To Democrats, police reform is all about grift and naked politics

Even if times are changing, Democrats in Congress don’t seem to alter their approaches any. If there’s a way to clog up the system with additional bureaucracy and litigation, they’ll find it. The liberal party rejected Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill purely due to political reasons -- and because the South Carolinian is an African-American Republican. Shameful.

Attorney General Bill Barr Strikes Antifa And BLM Revolutionaries

“The ultimate goal of the task force will be not only to enable prosecutions of extremists who engage in violence, but to understand these groups well enough that we can stop such violence before it occurs and ultimately eliminate it as a threat to public safety and the rule of law,” Attorney General Bill Barr wrote in a recent memo to to all the Justice Department’s law enforcement components and U.S. attorneys.

Assault on America, Day 545: No retreating on reopening the economy despite COVID-19 spike

News of a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases last week was seemingly greeted with relief by elements of the media. If true, the naysayers argue, the economy can’t be reopened, people will still be out of work and government will need to act -- again -- to take care of the unemployed. Then there’s the alternative, which is full speed ahead. Which way should we go?

Assault on America, Day 544: Yes, Obama, we cling to guns, religion and conservative media

Having Democrats blaming conservative media figures for the way things are in the U.S. today isn’t new. Bill Clinton all-but pinned 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing on his conservative critics. Then Hillary coined it “The vast rightwing conspiracy.” President Trump is no fan of the “fake news” media either. The battle for the news narrative will continue.

Black Lives Matter: The Terrorist Funders And Founders

Our friends at Capitol Research have just released a must-read research article, “A Terrorist’s Ties to a Leading Black Lives Matter Group” showing that at least one board member of Thousand Currents—the group fiscally sponsoring the most organized part of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, who have been involved in most of the current unrest— is Susan Rosenberg, a convicted terrorist who tried the same thing almost 40 years ago during Ronald Reagan’s reelection campaign, and it landed her in federal prison for 16 years.

Assault on America, Day 541: ‘Preacher’ Trump should take a page from 2016, pack substance

President Trump is one of the most talented politicians of the modern age, yet even he could stand to alter his approach to politics from time to time. Elections are always about the future and at his next rally, Trump would do well to talk a lot more about what he intends to do in his second term, something that would reassure more than his already dedicated fans.

Assault on America, Day 540: Crime up in cities, but who to blame? Depends on who you ask

The 2020 election is destined to be one heck of a nasty fight. Who will get the blame for the rancor? Hint: His name starts with Donald and his last name rhymes with “bump.” And it’s not because he’s mean or racist or was a celebrity and regular presence in the tabloids. It’s because Trump represents a complete departure from the status quo. To the elites, that’s bad.

My terrifying five-day stay inside Seattle’s cop-free CHAZ

Andy Ngo, New York Post

Despite the pleas from those who live and work inside Capitol Hill for law and order to be restored, Seattle’s city council has determined that CHAZ should continue. On Tuesday, the city even provided upgrades to CHAZ, including street blockades that double as graffiti canvases, along with cleaning services and porta-potties. It is difficult to decipher what CHAZ occupants want. Each faction, whether liberal, Marxist or anarchist, has their own agenda. But one online manifesto posted on Medium demands no less than the abolishment of the criminal justice system. What will happen if demands aren’t met?

As The Far Left Attacks Them We Say Defend the Police, Don't Defund the Police

If you wish to fight this organized Far Left assault on law and order we suggest you contact your local government officials and urge them to defend the police, not defund the police. One of the easiest and best ways to contact your local elected officials is through ACT for America’s website to send an email letting them know that you stand 100 percent with your local police officers and do not want to see any budget cuts to your local police department.

Seattle seems to be recognizing the right to a permanent protest zone

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Now Seattle seems to have ceded the governance of CHOP to protest groups, including Black Lives Matter, Urban League, Choose 180, Not This Time, Africatown, and others in an effort to make the area a better place to occupy. Trump vowed to do something about it -- he said the federal government had a number of options. But the federal government has no clear role, and the issue in Seattle is that the local and state governments don't want federal help. They appear to be OK with a significant part of the city being occupied. It's a problem that will have to be solved, if it is solved, in Seattle.

Seattle’s CHAZ: Non-conformist Utopia, or Politically Correct Hell?

John Fund, National Review

Secession is considered treason by mobs hauling down Confederate statues in other cities, but it’s the very basis of CHAZ. No one knows where CHAZ is heading. It’s doubtful under the glare of media cameras the Seattle police will emulate their New York City counterparts. In 2011, the NYPD cleared out Zuccotti Park after it had been seized for two months by Occupy Wall Street protesters, with 200 arrested. For now, the city should curtail diplomatic relations with CHAZ and stop subsidizing it. Over time, as local businesses give up and leave, most of its street people will probably drift away.

Assault on America, Day 531: Once beautiful Pacific Northwest now capital to nihilists & thugs

Seattle may be the latest example of a once proud American city that’s become ungovernable and unlivable, but it won’t be the last unless political leaders stand up and put an end to the nonsense. Survey after survey shows citizens want a much stronger law enforcement presence. Are “autonomous zones” here to stay?
