Where’s the outrage over Hillary’s call for a ‘civil’ war?

Two events from the last two days stand out. The first came Monday night with President Trump’s forceful yet compassionate speech at the swearing in of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The president opened with an extraordinary apology on behalf of the country to Kav­anaugh and his family “for the terrible pain and suffering” they endured during the historically brutal confirmation process. He said the unfounded allegations violated fairness and “the presumption of innocence.”

Trump also tenderly addressed Kavanaugh’s young daughters, telling them “your father is a great man, a man of decency, character, kindness and courage.”

The event was something of a spike-the-football moment in front of a cheering White House audience and as such was a clever piece of stagecraft, where Republican Sens. Mitch McConnell, Charles Grassley, Lindsey Graham and Susan Collins were saluted.

But the ceremony was much more than mere boosterism. With the eight other Supremes sitting in the front row, Trump aimed to restore dignity to the judiciary at a time when the dirtiest tricks of politics have buried the court in a mountain of mud.

The president is right to worry that the character-assassination attempt on Kavanaugh may turn out to be a seminal moment in American political and cultural history. The ideas that the court is just another political branch and that the presumption of innocence no longer applies if you are on the other team represent a seismic shift in how we look at each other and the nation as a whole.

If those ideas stick, we are in more trouble than we can imagine.

And while Trump has at times unnecessarily contributed to the rancor, he was terrific Monday in trying to repair what Senate Democrats and their media handmaidens tried to destroy.

Which brings me to the second event of note: Hillary Clinton’s statement Tuesday that Democrats “cannot be civil” as long as Republicans hold the White House and Congress.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

There you have it — a declaration of war and a license for violence. Where is the media outrage?

Clinton knows we are already in the danger zone when it comes to the political temperature. Her comments, then, are as reckless as bringing a can of gasoline to a bonfire.

She’s stoking trouble to gain a foothold in the 2020 race — and damn the consequences.

Her claim that civility can return when Dems have power is an admission that the ends justify the means.

Then again, she never fails to disappoint. As I wrote Sunday, she has spent the last two years casting doubt on the legitimacy of the Trump presidency because the election didn’t go her way. That makes her guilty of the very thing she found “horrifying” when Trump suggested he might not abide by the results if he thought they were rigged.

“He is denigrating — he is talking down our democracy. And I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that position,” she said in their final debate, in October 2016.

She added, “That is not the way our democracy works.”

But it does work exactly that way when Democrats are denied what they feel entitled to. They should be careful what they wish for.

For if the Kavanaugh experience revealed anything, it is that Trump’s GOP knows how to fight back and win. It is hard to imagine that Kavanaugh would have survived such an onslaught under any other ­recent Republican candidate or president.

There were so many reasons, and so much media pressure, that it would not have been surprising if a bloc of senators called the allegations a “distraction” and waved a white flag. They didn’t because Trump and Kavanaugh didn’t back down.

Still, there is danger when two sides both think they can outlast the other. Responding to my concern that America might be sleepwalking into a second civil war, a number of readers agreed. Some said they welcomed it.

Curt Doolittle wrote this: “We aren’t sleepwalking into it, we know exactly what we’re doing and why. The hard right and hard left are planning on it, ready for it, and looking for an opportunity.”

He said the pressure has been building and that “the only reason it hasn’t turned hot is the outlier of Trump’s election. If Clinton had won, we’d already be there.”

Fifty  more dead victims of Muslim terror.

I’m sure the motivation is justified by occupation, oppression, poverty, and a lack of human rights.

I hope the United States government doesn’t do anything to raise the level of tension but more importantly I pray there is no Islamophobic backlash.

May God avenge their blood and heal the wounded

Friday nights are usually family time around the LoB homestead.

Now that LoB Jr. is off at a small mid-western college writing letters to Penthouse it tends to  just be Mrs. LoB and me catching up on the week’s DVR’d  sitcoms.

When the TV starts up it’s programmed to open with FOX News and there was Megyn Kelly getting the scoop from the Windy City.

All I can say is, where is Mayor Richard J. Daley when you need him?

In the interest of full disclosure I have to admit that the Donald is not my first choice for president. I think Kasich for all his peccadilloes would be a better Commander-in- Chief, but i digress.

Mrs. LoB on the other hand wants Megyn Kelly for president.

Mrs. LoB is so imbued with Ms. Kelly that she has consented to let Megyn be my free pass. So if you are reading this Megyn, I’ll bring the whipped cream, you bring the cherries, but I digress.

Anyway I would like to thank the flotsam and jetsam of the City of the Big Shoulders  for showing their true colors.

By denying Trump  his right to express himself they have helped to further solidify the growing core of his support.

The over arching image I’m left with of this creme de le scum is the pervasive plethora of Mexican flags and keffiyehs being sported. The other take away was that these SHPOS (that stands for sub human pieces of shit for those of you unfamiliar) either spoke with heavy foreign accents or were unable to articulate a thought, or both.

The most intelligent expression they had was the presence of a multitude of Bernie Sanders signs.

I’m waiting for him to disavow the Bolshevik thuggish tactics used in his name. Should I hold my breath?

Last night in Sweet Home gives us all more reasons to vote for Trump.

The media tried to make him look like an innocent child.

But this was the real Trayvon Martin.

And this is why he’s dead.

There was no racism, no denial of civil rights, no injustice, no manslaughter, no murder.

There was a fair trial with a fair verdict following a legal, self-defense killing of a criminal punk.

Deal with it, people!

The black protests and plans to further pursue Mr. Zimmerman (the victim who also has civil rights) via the absurd idea that he somehow violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights are tantamount to lynch mob mentality, reverse discrimination, and classic black racism.

I know. The truth hurts for some of you, but just give it some time and you’ll adjust.

What we need now are more automatic weapons with super-high-capacity magazines so we can defend ourselves against the black mobs (a.k.a. Domestic Urban Terrorists) who are perpetrating beatings and killings of innocent folks around our great Republic simply because they’re white. Now, they not only beat and kill their own, they beat and kill anybody! Start popping caps in their asses and empty noggins and they’ll scatter like scared little school girls.
