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.

Assault on America, Day 208: A horrible budget deal only a DC swamp creature could love

The budget deal is truly awful, but conservatives should take some solace in the fact Democrat 2020 candidates will soon be at it again with their next round of debates. Will they address the deficit? Will they talk about the national debt? Is there another solution other than confiscatory taxes? Inquiring minds want to know.

Assault on America, Day 205: What part of ‘America First’ do the media and Dems not get?

Despite what the media chooses to report, President Trump’s trade policies are quite simple and work like a charm. With a singular focus on backing American industry while negotiating with foreign governments, the notion of “America First” is making great popular strides with the people.

Assault on America, Day 204: Circus sideshow 2020 Dems amp up absurdity as debate looms

Running for president is a tough business and no one says it’s fair for all the participants. Drawing early attention and support is essential to mounting a viable campaign, which means Democrats will say some crazy stuff in the lead up to next week’s debates…and afterwards, too.

Assault on America, Day 203: How ‘Trumpian’ values replaced the feeble and outdated old GOP

It’s clear that many in both parties are having a difficult time defining President Trump and what his administration represents. Though the federal fiscal situation leaves much to be desired, Trump’s emphasis on people-centered government is a big improvement from the “old” GOP.

Assault on America, Day 202: R’s and D’s fail to appreciate suicide missions result in death

Democrats have spent years trying to paint Trump as a racist -- and they’re still doing it -- but now they’re getting a little taste of their own medicine, and don’t like it. The best thing Trump could’ve done was get Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat leadership defending the “Squad.” How dumb and ignorant are they?

America’s Latest Mideast Crisis May Have No Escape

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

This week President Donald Trump is sending 500 additional U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia. In this new century, leaders of both parties have plunged our country into at least five wars in the Middle and Near East. None of these wars has produced a victory or success for us. But taken together, they did produce a multitrillion-dollar strategic and human rights disaster. Meanwhile, China gained much from having its great rival thrashing about ineffectually in the forever wars of the Middle East. "Great nations do no fight endless wars," said Trump. Yes, they do. As the British, French, Germans, Japanese and Russians showed in the last century, that is how they cease to be great nations.

Assault on America, Day 201: ‘Send her back!’ is the rallying cry of the politically suppressed

Among the multitude of problems the establishment media chooses to ignore is the border patrol’s inability to adequately control drug and human smuggling due to lack of manpower and resources. Rather than report facts, media members sensationalize “Send her Back!” chants. Who loses here?

Assault on America, Day 198: Anniversary of Apollo 11 tests today’s wimpy liberal mindset

The fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing represents both a testament to human ingenuity and a challenge to resurrect the spirit that allowed us to reach for the stars. In wasn’t a partisan achievement, it was an American one. Unfortunately, those days are long gone…will they ever return?

Assault on America, Day 197: Will Joe Biden’s fib obsession lead to calls for Hillary to run?

Whether or not Hillary Clinton eventually decides to enter the 2020 presidential race, Joe Biden’s fate depends on how long he maintains the appearance of viability. Once Democrat voters see through the former Obama VP’s ruse the end will come quickly. Will Hillary then pick up the pieces?

Assault on America, Day 196: How Trump sidestepped Paul Ryan’s lessons on government

President Trump’s battle against the Washington elites is just getting started, and if the ruling class gets its way, he’ll not only lose the fight, he’ll be shamed and drummed out of town. Paul Ryan is relieved to be away from it all -- here’s hoping more establishmentarians follow him into retirement.

Assault on America, Day 195: Today’s warped Dems wish everyone was a needy illegal alien

No matter how much we wish it, the illegal immigration issue isn’t going away. In today’s toxic political environment, the only thing that can be done is to try and plug the enormous gaps in the balky border system -- or to vote in politicians who see reality and crave to do something about it.

Democrats Raising The Mexican Flag Over America

On Friday, "protesters" tore down the American flag and raised the Mexican flag over the ICE facility in Aurora, Colorado. It is worth noting that these things only seem to happen in Democrat-controlled areas, and right on cue, on Friday, all of Colorado’s Democratic politicians began echoing open borders talking points.

Assault on America, Day 194: When it comes to Democrat nut-jobs, Tom Steyer takes 1st prize

Tom Steyer’s entrance into the Democrat presidential race will shake things up -- for a while -- but it’s impossible to tell how he will impact the long-term results. Like all Democrat candidates, Steyer lacks a reason for existing -- and they all look like dull pewter compared to solid gold Donald Trump.

Assault on America, Day 191: Leftists champion losers while dissing Thomas Jefferson’s holiday

Honoring the Founding Fathers and the United States flag should be a no-brainer for Americans, but the cultural rot that’s relentlessly advanced by the left is present all around us. At the very least the past deserves respect and educated perspective. Is it really too much to ask today?
