Assault on America, Day 35: Filled with purpose, Trump sets proper tone for America in SOTU

President Trump’s Tuesday speech will be picked apart and dissected for hidden meanings in the coming days but it primarily was a call for a political ceasefire so as to accomplish positive results for Americans. In doing so, Trump fulfilled his presidential purpose. Will Democrats do their part?

Assault on America, Day 34: Trump should use SOTU bully pulpit to highlight best of America

Those hoping President Trump’s State of the Union address will help end the current political stalemate between the parties will be sorely disappointed. Nothing short of complete capitulation to Democrat demands would satisfy the opposition. The future is at stake…will people wake up?

Assault on America, Day 33: The Patriots won the Super Bowl; who will triumph on the border wall?

Because the parties are so far apart on the border wall funding dilemma, there’s no easy answer in sight. Democrats won’t consider the arguments in favor of a barrier despite having recognized them in the past. The Super Bowl had a winner and loser -- will it be the same in Congress?

Assault on America, Day 30: Democrats’ nutty ideas doomed to drive Americans back to GOP

Democrats’ lack of “forgiveness” or understanding for average Americans will certainly sound their death knell at the ballot box -- and that’s especially true where the border barrier is concerned. You know how Americans feel about Democrats not achieving anything? Yeah… they’re against it.

Assault on America, Day 29: 2020 Democrats look like a parade of the expended and tired

Democrats aren’t so busy celebrating their “victory” on the border wall funding scrap with President Trump to look ahead to next year and who will try to beat him. The old and tired wing of the party has Joe Biden -- and probably Hillary Clinton… better prepare for a failure of epic proportions.

Mueller, An Odd Hero for the Lawless Left

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

During the Clinton years, we heard a lot from the left about the “criminalizing of political differences.” We don’t hear those laments anymore. Liberals used to tell us that Trump had no intention of winning in the first place and was as surprised as anyone by his victory. They champion Mueller not because he is protecting “our sovereignty,” as one Hollywood starlet recently put it, but for the simple reason that he is tormenting their political opponents.

Assault on America, Day 28: SOTU postponed but Trump will enjoy last word in standoff

It’s a shame the State of the Union address did not go on as planned but President Trump is far from ready to capitulate on border wall funding. Americans will eventually see Speaker Pelosi for the unbalanced partisan hack that she is -- and politics as usual may finally be put to rest.

On closer examination, Roger Stone indictment is less than it seems

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Stone's defense of himself in the "time in the barrel" matter, in his contacts with Guccifer 2.0, and in his lack of direct contacts with WikiLeaks all resulted in no accusations from Mueller. And, of course, the indictment did not charge that Stone knew about the WikiLeaks disclosures beforehand, or that he was involved in any conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election, or that such a conspiracy even existed. Put it all together, and the Stone indictment adds up to less than it at first seems.

Assault on America, Day 27: Catatonic GOP leaders own the next shutdown… if there is one

Next to the inability to fund the border wall, Republican leaders’ silence is the single most disappointing aspect of the struggle to control illegal immigration. Appearances mean things -- if McConnell and McCarthy are to join the fray it’s time to fish or cut bait. Fence-sitters lose every time.

We Could All Be Roger Stone

The way we see it, Roger Stone’s only crimes are being friends with Donald Trump and using his considerable skills at manipulating the media to keep the story of Hillary Clinton’s many real crimes alive – and pissing-off Robert Mueller and his band of Democrat witch hunters in the process. We have contributed to the Roger Stone Legal Defense Fund and we hope you and other CHQ readers and friends will do likewise.

Assault on America, Day 26: Media says Trump caved on wall, but it’s Democrats in the dark

Democrats’ intractable position on border wall funding will invariably force President Trump’s hand -- and that’s something Trump relishes. Democrats could be reasonable and accept the president’s compromise offer…or more likely end up with a wall on the border and nothing for their side.

Assault on America, Day 22: In Democrat-land, the prettier you are the smarter you become

The old saying goes that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but where Democrats are concerned a handsome countenance goes much farther than that. When trying to standout to the grossly uniformed and overly superficial Democrat base it pays to be a looker -- just ask Juan Williams.

What if Mueller doesn't give Democrats what they want?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Now there is talk about starting a new House Trump-Russia investigation that would essentially replicate what Mueller is doing now, but with the assurance that the proper (anti-Trump) result would be reached and that it could be used for impeachment purposes. Democrat party leaders have invested a lot in their across-the-board opposition to the president. If Mueller does not come up with something that supports what Democratic lawmakers want to do, they will have to do it themselves.

The Mueller Squirrel Cage

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Mueller has taught us that whether you go to jail for perjury, illegal leaking, lying to federal investigators, destroying key evidence, obstructing a federal court, or trying, as a foreign citizen, to warp the outcome of a U.S. presidential election, all depend entirely on the particular agendas of a particular prosecutor, not the law per se. Mueller’s legacy will likely be that he has now institutionalized the idea of inequality under the law — seeking out bothersome outsider minnows while establishment sharks devoured the Constitution.

Assault on America, Day 21: Long past time for a GOP scorched earth strategy on judge nominees

Try as they might, Democrats can’t delay everything forever, especially if Republicans grow a spine and make them participate in the process -- or they’ll just be steamrolled. Democrats play for keeps…it’s about time Republican leaders acknowledged it and countered fire with fire.

Assault on America, Day 20: Shutdown blame game a mundane prelude to 2020 fireworks show

There’s definitely a chance this government shutdown goes on so long people forget how or why it started and all that’s left are Trump and Democrat leaders squabbling over who’s at fault. Ultimately the American people will decide between them -- and time is on Trump’s side.

The media’s ‘Gotcha!’ hysteria is shameful

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

It is not healthy that a prosecutor has become like a divine oracle, with the nation’s mood hanging on first his silence, then his statement. Mueller is not exempt from the laws of common sense and fairness. When it comes to Trump, he must fish or cut bait. After nearly two years of investigating, on top of a 10-month FBI probe he inherited, Mueller needs to show his cards. The country cannot continue to thrash about with uncertainty over events that took place three years ago. The void is being filled with partisan trash and dangerous discord.

Assault on America, Day 19: Trump populism the new ticket to draining the putrid DC swamp

Donald Trump was elected president precisely because he understood what the people wanted -- and promised to give it to them. If this makes him a “populist,” it’s a mantle he’ll wear proudly. Democrats pledge free stuff, Trump offers prosperity and security. What will Americans choose in 2020?

Assault on America, Day 16: Snobby Pelosi SOTU stunt to backfire on grandstanding Dems

If you only saw the political elites you might think the State of our Union really isn’t strong. Under current leadership it’s okay to cancel national assemblies for pathetic personal vendettas and cheap political points, but the American people aren’t fools -- they want border security.

Assault on America, Day 15: RINOs & Dems whine and kvetch while border crisis boils

No amount of excuses RINOs like John Kasich or liberal Democrats make will change the facts on the border -- or anything else of consequence in today’s America. Republican and conservative policies work if they’re tried, something not possible with the DC swamp mentality.
