Assault on America, Day 279: Most endangered animal in American politics? Moderate Democrat

There’s little doubt the political species known as “Moderate Democrat” should be placed on an endangered list (if not already declared extinct). Moderation in Democrat-land earns you too many enemies and too few friends, a realization that more and more would-be candidates are discovering.

Assault on America, Day 278: Joe Biden, Hunter, and the photo that wrecked a campaign

With facts yet to come out in the Ukraine/Hunter Biden scandal, it’s difficult to tell exactly how damaged Joe Biden will be at the end of it all. Some claim Democrats are moving the controversy forward to get rid of Joe; but it seems like Biden’s doing a pretty good job of eliminating himself on his own.

Assault on America, Day 275: Hurry up and impeach, Nancy! We only have ten years to live!

Whether it’s Hillary Clinton or Al Gore -- or Greta Thunberg or AOC -- Democrats are perhaps using climate hysteria as the foundation for the need to impeach Trump now, before the 2020 election. Trump’s reelection would stifle all their plans to rid the earth of carbon forever. Hurry up, Nancy!

Assault on America, Day 274: Dem presidential wannabes jump on impeachment bandwagon

There’s little doubt Nancy Pelosi’s decision to move forward with impeachment will impact the 2020 Democrat presidential race, but we’re not sure how -- or to what extent. From the outset it seemed clear that Democrats didn’t care much about anything other than Trump. Now’s their chance to prove otherwise.

Assault on America, Day 273: Impeachment? Dems want to shut the government down too!

As long as Trump’s in the White House with presidential veto authority Democrats know they’ll never realize their dreams of universal government healthcare, amnesty for every illegal alien and a disarmed domestic citizenry. Stalled appropriations bills are their present and future if Trump is reelected.

Assault on America, Day 272: Dem impeachment actions equal complete and opposite reactions

Every time Democrats do something over-the-top -- like declare they’re planning to impeach President Trump -- we can expect conservatives and Republicans to fight back fiercely. For every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction; remember this whenever Nancy Pelosi opens her mouth.

Assault on America, Day 271: 2 weeks from now no one talks about Ukraine. But impeachment?

Democrats and #NeverTrumpers were searching for the right opening to get at Trump and they thought they’d found it with the Ukraine non-controversy. The actual words that were spoken don’t help their cause, no matter how much they insist it does. Let the chips fall where they may -- Democrats will lose in the end.

Assault on America, Day 268: 'Pocahontas' Liz must come clean on her all-inclusive tax scheme

Time will tell whether Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren has the political skills and practical wherewithal to explain her proposals in a manner that voters identify with, and whether she’ll overcome Joe Biden’s electability argument. Democrat primary participants will decide. Do they know best?

Assault on America, Day 267: Greta Thunberg is a Hogg-clone for opportunistic greenie wackos

Greta Thunberg is well-known because somebody, somewhere decided to make hers the face of the leftist globalist climate change agenda. Politicians like Bernie Sanders are using the teen to further their own missions as well, proving there isn’t much shame to go ‘round in the Democrat party today.

Assault on America, Day 266: Three (or more) reasons why Kamala Harris won’t be president

With a little over four months to go until Democrats caucus in Iowa, much could potentially change in the intervening time. One thing that’s unlikely to improve for Kamala Harris, however, is her ability to fit in with a large enough segment of voters to make a difference when the race tightens.

Assault on America, Day 265: If the Founding Fathers didn’t always agree, why should we?

Both liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans suffer from the same type of political malady -- the lack of a party grassroots that agrees on everything. The American system isn’t built to satisfy everyone. The best anyone can do is rely on principle and hope the rest falls in line naturally.

Assault on America, Day 264: Democrats have more to worry about than Joe Biden’s flubs

Americans aren’t fooled by Democrats and their lack of substance. Speculation over Joe Biden’s mental state will last as long as he continues to stumble every other sentence, but in the end it doesn’t matter. If he and his fellow Democrats won’t talk about jobs and the economy, they might as well all be demented.

Assault on America, Day 261: Trump knows what he’s doing on Iran. Let’s all be thankful

The president knows history and he’s seen what happens to American leaders who insist on assuming the role of the world’s policeman and food distributor. Sometimes it’s best just to stay out. Thank God Trump appears to have learned this lesson -- and he’ll hold firm against the rest.

Assault on America, Day 260: Authenticity in short supply for Democrat presidential wannabes

Close observation reveals the Democrat presidential candidates are all about the same, which is the reason why they’re having a hard time cutting into Joe Biden’s polling lead. Collectively they’re so far outside the mainstream it’s hard to relate to any of them. Authenticity is in short supply in Democrat-land these days.

Assault on America, Day 259: Donald Trump, judges, and the consequences of electing liberals

Barack Obama famously said “elections have consequences,” and for once, he was right. America and the world would be very different today if Hillary Clinton had beaten Donald Trump in 2016. #NeverTrumpers only seem to care about tone -- do they think a sweet-talking Democrat would solve things?

Assault on America, Day 258: For Trump and the GOP in 2020, it’s School Choice, stupid!

Some political issues are such obvious winners they should be in the forefront of every conservative’s campaign pitch. School choice and responsible stewardship of the environment are two subjects the GOP could use to turn heads instead of permitting the left to control the narrative. Are Republicans paying attention?

Assault on America, Day 257: Mark Sanford run the epitome of a #NeverTrump fool’s errand

One can’t necessarily blame Mark Sanford for challenging Trump in the 2020 GOP primaries, but it’s open to debate whether it’s a net positive or just a fool’s errand. The “conversation” regarding debt and spending needs to take place either way -- and who’s to say Sanford should lead it?

Assault on America, Day 254: Houston Democrat debate -- Why do they hate America so much?

Democrats have a heck of a lot of work -- and soul-searching -- to do before settling on a nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in next year’s general election. The confusion and indecision on display in Houston won’t clarify the hard choices for the party’s voters -- if anything, it’s more wide open than ever for America’s liberals.

Assault on America, Day 253: Joe Biden, his stamina, smarts & sanity under scrutiny tonight

Americans will be watching closely as the somewhat winnowed Democrat field gathers tonight in Houston for their third debate of the 2020 nominating cycle. After the program we’ll know a lot more about Joe Biden and his ability to sustain himself for the long haul -- of if he’ll merely reprise his role as the incredible shrinking man.

Assault on America, Day 252: 9/11 reminds us we still have far to go to Deliver Us From Fear

Similar to December 7, 1941, September 11, 2001 will live as a day in infamy for folks who vividly remember the attack and its aftermath. The nineteen terrorists will have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams if Americans allow fear to tear our country apart. We can’t let them.
