Assault on America, Day 231: Prepare for the ‘Office of White Supremacy’ if Dems win in 2020

Thanks to Booker and “Beto” the 2020 campaign just got that much nastier. We’re still over a year away from the fall general election contest and it promises to be the ugliest one on record. Democrats aren’t holding back anymore -- anyone who supports Trump is a “racist.” And you could end up on a watch list in the White House.

Assault on America, Day 230: Dem losers make great candidates for intra-party advancement

As long as there are elections there will be losers and a good share of them will be Democrats. Such candidates should take heart; their party not only sees them as unlucky and unfortunate, it also likely considers them good contenders for even higher offices. Stacy Abrams for VP? What a joke.

99 Conservative Leaders: Trump’s Regulatory Reform Should Reject Preemptive Vetoes

The Obama Administration took unprecedented steps to preemptively block the issuance of Section 404 permits—the Clean Water Act permits required to begin most mining and infrastructure projects—before they were even reviewed. Conservatives applaud the recent action by the Trump Administration’s EPA to undo the preemptive veto of the Pebble Mine in Southwest Alaska.

Assault on America, Day 229: Bar-B-Q, political choices and Dems -- a snapshot of life in 2019

Joaquin Castro likely did Texas based Bill Miller Bar-B-Q a favor (in the business sense) by publishing the name of its owner as a Trump backer. Texas conservatives’ response has been overwhelming -- but what does it say about our culture and society when it’s okay to potentially ruin someone’s existence over a political view? Think about it.

President Trump Needs an Ally as Intel Director

Christopher C. Hull, The Epoch Times

Trump needs someone like Hoekstra or Fleitz, who could remind the nation of a century of Russian interference, including Russia’s offer in 1968 to finance the campaign of Democrat Hubert Humphrey against Richard Nixon; Teddy Kennedy’s plea to Moscow to intervene in the 1984 elections against Ronald Reagan; and especially Hillary Clinton in 2016 paying a former foreign spy to dig up agitprop directly from Russian intelligence and then weaponize it inside the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement community. This is the president’s chance to get it right on the intelligence community in this first term. Either Fleitz or Hoekstra would do just that.

Assault on America, Day 226: If 2020 Democrat candidates were in training, they’d all be cut

With Joe Biden looking increasingly tired, careworn and unable to get his thoughts straight, Democrats have a heck of a problem. Like a football team with no one backing up an aging and failing quarterback, the party is desperately searching for another option -- and time is running out.

Assault on America, Day 225: Cultural retreat spells death for conservatives hoping to MAGA

Conservatives won’t realize cultural success until there’s a determined effort among those with a say to engage with liberals on their own turf and refuse to bow to political correctness wherever it’s found. Retreating before the battle is joined is the last thing we should do if we’re truly to Make America Great Again.

Assault on America, Day 224: Does Biden really think being a minority equates to being poor?

Nearly as predictable as the tides, Joe Biden will keep making speeches and he’ll continue saying things that cause decent people to shake their heads. Democrats must decide whether they want a presidential nominee who seems to be slipping more and more as the days go on. What will they do?

Cuccinelli: No Public Charge Immigrants

The much-needed rule, supported by key Trump administration immigration hawks, takes effect in mid-October and would reject applicants for temporary or permanent visas for failing to meet income standards or for receiving public assistance such as welfare, food stamps, public housing or Medicaid.

Assault on America, Day 223: Americans buying guns is the rational response to mass shootings

Americans aren’t stupid; they see what’s happening in the country and can be trusted to take rational approaches to complex problems -- like purchasing a firearm for personal protection. The political class always jumps to conclusions, and often times they’re the wrong ones for the wrong reasons.

Assault on America, Day 222: Two years since Charlottesville and Dems haven’t learned a thing

It’d be great to say America’s learned a lesson in the two years since the deadly riot in central Virginia, but glancing around it certainly doesn’t look that way. Liberals are still attempting to pin blame for tragedies on the political leadership in the White House. And it ain’t working.

Assault on America, Day 219: Kamala Harris shows true meaning of political ‘flash in the pan’

It takes a lot for a politician to achieve electoral viability and sustain it through a grueling campaign -- and then maintain it once in office. Democrats like Kamala Harris can only get so far on surface characteristics alone, something several candidates are yet to discover in this year’s presidential race.

Assault on America, Day 218: ‘National White Male Lobotomy Day’ coming to your town

Democrats will do anything to win, and their suggestion of a special congressional look into “white nationalism” is as ridiculous as they come. In time someone will devise a reasonable way to stave off the next irrational attack. Until that time, maybe the politicians should just stay the heck away from DC.

Assault on America, Day 217: Why today’s pols shouldn’t try to compete for every possible vote

While it’s a good thing to say you’ll compete for every vote, closer analysis indicates it just isn’t possible. In today’s political climate there’s no such thing as the lowest common denominator; it’s best to take a position and defend it to the last and not worry about the naysayers. Just ask President Trump.

Assault on America, Day 216: American culture of death, not firearms, to blame for mass murders

Something’s definitely wrong in America when individuals set off on mass murder rampages. The challenge lies with identifying a true cause and devising solutions that are both politically palatable and will actually address the problems. Blaming guns or the president is the easy way out. Can’t we talk about the culture of death instead?

Assault on America, Day 215: Dems dump on Obama while Trump’s re-election prospects rise

It wouldn’t be a stretch to deem President Trump the “winner” of last week’s Democrat debates. The lifelong celebrity and social media master knows precisely which buttons to push to get his enemies attacking him -- and each other, too. It’s only August and already the Democrats are in deep trouble.

Assault on America, Day 212: Democrats’ ‘dark psychic forces’ will throw the 2020 election

When Trump talks about “rat infested” Baltimore and making streets safer, he’s drawing a lot of voters’ attention. And his Jamestown tribute was highly presidential, too. Democrats won’t get nearly as far talking about “dark psychic forces” and other wacko ideas, but they’ll sure give it a try.

Assault on America, Day 211: Democrat debate: Until further notice, it’s Biden’s race to lose

Will these two programs shake up the Democrat race? We’ll find out in the coming days and weeks, but here’s thinking everyone’s ready for a break from the non-stop negativity, blame game and finger pointing of the party candidates. In that sense, the real “winner” is all of us.

Assault on America, Day 210: Democrat debate equals predictability and inadvertent hilarity

It’s often said these debates do little to help voters make up their minds, and it might be especially true in Democrats’ case. It’s hard to think of a time in history where one of the parties has offered such poor candidates for president as this year’s Democrats. The party’s “stars” are extreme and the no-names are boring. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, not a roadmap to victory.

Assault on America, Day 209: Advice ain’t always worth what you pay for it. Listening, Democrats?

It’s often said advice is worth what you pay for it, a truism the 2020 Democrat candidates shouldn’t necessarily take to heart. Occasionally a valuable tip arrives free of charge. Will the second round of Democrat debates show the party’s presidential hopefuls learned a lesson? Don’t bet on it.
