Assault on America, Day 442: COVID-19 vaults illegal immigration to the top of 2020 debate

With the Democrats’ primary race ending and the presidential election approaching, Americans will now begin focusing less on personalities and electability and more on the candidates’ issue positions. Joe Biden won’t win many converts by promising to go easy on illegal aliens and vastly curtailing energy exploration. It just makes Trump’s job easier.

Assault on America, Day 441: COVID-19 + pols + media = taxpayers on the dole for $850 billion

We could not have foreseen what’s happened with the coronavirus up to this point and there’s no way to predict where events will go from here. The media pressured the political class into reacting/overreacting to a serious threat and now we’re preparing to dump hundreds of billions into it. What holds the future?

Assault on America, Day 440: Seeking a slight glimpse of future hope among coronavirus doom

There aren’t many moments where we receive an opportunity to glimpse the future, but the coronavirus pandemic appears to be one of them. Whether we’re ever able to “go back” is another question entirely. There’s no stuffing the genie back in the bottle on this one -- and we’ll need to live with the consequences when things die down.

Assault on America, Day 439: Anticlimactic Joe & Bernie debate show draws an audience of zero

For better or worse, the Democrat race is over… and again, this was likely the final 2020 candidates’ debate. In this sense, the American public was the “winner.” The next time we see Joe Biden on the debate stage, he’ll be opposite President Donald Trump. Anyone (besides the media) think Biden will come across as the better man then?

Assault on America, Day 436: Questions debate moderators should ask Bernie & Joe on Sunday

With the Democrat presidential race all-but over, Sunday’s “debate” is bound to feel anti-climactic and like a waste of time. Perhaps the only yet to be determined matter is whether Biden can keep his wits together for two hours -- and whether Bernie finally takes off the gloves regarding Joe’s massive corruption deficit.

Assault on America, Day 435: Coronavirus will neither help nor hinder Trump’s reelection drive

Coronavirus is a serious matter and President Trump is giving it its due consideration. Life must go on and Trump’s reaction to the fears of normal people is in line with what any leader should do. If the president went around acting scared, it would only make things worse. Be thankful for competent political leadership at times like these.

Assault on America, Day 434: To Democrats, everything and nothing sounds good at one time

Regardless of the reasons, Democrats are pretty much stuck with Joe Biden -- and all that comes with him -- for their party nominee. The 2020 field’s women candidates didn’t lose because of their gender; they lost because they weren’t good choices and the establishment first sought to take care of their own.

Assault on America, Day 433: Biden momentum surge destined to drown in sea of hypocrisy

The past couple weeks demonstrated how quickly things change in the world of politics and how voter attitudes often shift without explanation. One thing that will likely remain the same is President Trump’s hold on the loyalty of conservatives and Republicans. Democrats can’t match it, regardless of who wins their nomination.

Religious Liberty: Trump DOJ Defends Catholic School in State Court

J. Christian Adams, PJ Media

Unlike Eric Holder’s DOJ, the Trump administration is on the forefront of defending First Amendment religious liberty. This Tuesday, Justice Department Civil Rights Division lawyers will be appearing in an Indiana state court to defend the religious freedom of Catholic schools. Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband's team will personally appear to defend the Archdiocese of Indianapolis against an employment discrimination lawsuit brought by a teacher who was fired for openly flouting Catholic Church teaching on marriage. The Trump administration is coming to the defense of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis in stark contrast to the approach toward religious liberty of the Obama administration.

Assault on America, Day 432: Jealousy and envy of Trump won’t heal Democrats’ deep divisions

Democrats envy Donald Trump, and the jealousy doesn’t end there. Liberals see a Republican Party united like never before and the daunting prospect of battling an incumbent president who’s (literally) survived trial after trial. There are dark clouds on the horizon and Democrats are justifiably terrified.

Assault on America, Day 429: Would Donald Trump really dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley?

Just because the Democrat establishment was able to pull off a miracle and save Joe Biden’s candidacy from the political trash heap doesn’t grant them license to start giving President Trump advice – or to predict that he’s about to dump Mike Pence for Nikki Haley. Time and events are on Trump’s side – and he knows it.

Assault on America, Day 428: Resurrected Joe Biden ain’t any better than the one left for dead

Joe Biden just ain’t that smart. And voting against Trump won’t be enough, especially since Harry Reid tipped Democrats’ (empty) hand early – all they have is racism and fear mongering going for them. That’s Hillary redux, not a winning message. Democrats very well could regret bringing Joe back from the political dead.

Assault on America, Day 427: Democrats forget Joe Biden is/was an awful (and old) candidate

With the Democrat nominating contest dwindled down to two viable contenders, the chances of party voters settling on one clear leader before their convention aren’t great. The effort to stop Bernie Sanders will continue but it’ll take something akin to a miracle to make either of them look as strong and vibrant as Trump.

Assault on America, Day 426: What Super Tuesday won’t solve (Trump and minority voters)

After Super Tuesday, much discussion will focus on the remaining viable candidates in the Democrat presidential race, but it shouldn’t be ignored how President Trump’s campaign is gaining a foothold with once solid Democrat constituencies. This won’t change regardless of whether it’s Bloomberg, Biden or Sanders that eventually faces him.

Assault on America, Day 425: Bloviating Biden wins one for the ruling class in South Carolina

Joe Biden will no doubt enjoy his South Carolina victory, but he shouldn’t get cocky. Super Tuesday looms large on the horizon and his prospects don’t look nearly as promising in the days ahead. The Democrat presidential race is more confused than ever, and the Palmetto State only made it worse.

Assault on America, Day 422: Dems’ coronavirus hype is climate change with a Chinese face

Some people need a reason to worry about something and that certainly appears to be the case where the coronavirus is concerned. With any number of more pervasive and lethal problems all around us, it just doesn’t make sense to scare the bejesus out of people for no legitimate reason. It’s all about politics, isn’t it?

Assault on America, Day 421: R’s and D’s bet on boost in voter turnout in 2020. Will it happen?

It’s curious that in 2020, the establishment media doesn’t have to work hard to hype the upcoming election. Should the contest eventually boil down to Trump versus Sanders, there will be plenty of people participating who previously didn’t give a squat about politics. Who will come out ahead?

Assault on America, Day 420: Did Democrats trigger a civil war in South Carolina again?

South Carolinians vote on Saturday and then on Super Tuesday, March 3, 1,617 total delegates will be awarded in 14 state primaries. Democrat voters will determine the winners and losers of party debates, and if the past is any indication, Bernie Sanders offers the most of what they like to see. Is America watching?

The Loser Establishment Is Rightfully Terrified of Ric Grenell

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

There is still establishment trash in key positions, and the president is taking out the garbage. He is cleaning house of losers, schemers, hacks, and pompous fat-bodies. He’s going to ruthlessly purge the national security/foreign policy bureaucracy, getting rid of the Never Trump weasels and replacing them with actual patriots. The media is going nuts, as it has been directed to do by its masters, screeching that Trump is ruining the institutions that have not failed to fail at everything they have done in nearly 30 years. He’s going to try out a new idea on our bureaucracy – having it not suck at its job. The reason you are hearing all the shrieking and screaming is that it’s working.

Assault on America, Day 419: Sanders and Dems bank on youthful ignorance to fuel campaign

As the Democrat presidential race moves towards the South Carolina primary and Super Tuesday on March 3, the non-Bernie Sanders candidates recognize they’re in a tight spot. Time is running out to alter the course of the contest, so expect another bash-on-Bernie fest in the Palmetto State debate tonight.
