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.”

Time to throw John Kerry, alias Lurch into the hoosegow and ditch the key.

For over 200 years the Logan act has criminalized private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.

That didn’t prevent Moose-jaw Kerry from making promises to the Palestinian Authority and encouraging them not to negotiate with the US until he is elected president in 2020.

Where is the mainstream media on this one?

Oh yeah, looking for Trump/Russia collusion.

Jeff Sessions needs to indict Kerry or get the fuck out of town.

And by the way, Mr. Kerry,

Next Friday can’t come soon enough.

Obama, the Piece-of Shit-in Chief, has wreaked enough havoc but still has evil tricks up his sleeve.

Pray they come to naught.

logicHow is it that the most inciteful and hateful images and accusations can be leveled against Jews as long as they are called Zionists or Israelis?

Yet the slightest criticism of Islamic supremacists or jihadists is labeled as anti-Muslim.

Even George Orwell is scratching his head.

The State  of the Union address is tonight and I just can’t wait to hear what President Joe Momma has to say.

Actually I can’t wait to never hear his voice again.

Every time he opens his mouth it’s a puke fest, he is so nauseating.

He ripped on Donald Trump for Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again” meme, saying how wonderful things are here.

Why then, for the last seven years did he never shut up about how horrible America is and how much more work he has to do to change things.

Well then, I guess you can rest easy now Mr. President, your job is done and you don’t have to fuck things up anymore.

And by the way, are you running against Trump?

He’s always telling us that the barbaric and sadistic acts perpetrated by Muslims have nothing to do with Islam. The I guess we can kill all of them and there’s nothing real Muslims can get upset about.

Please exercise your executive for the next 373 days to

SHUT THE FUCK UP.

Obama is Jewish like I’m the Pope. Actually, that’s not a fair comparison. Like I’m Steppin Fetchit.

by Seth Mandel

It turns out Adam Sandler needs to revise his classic “Hanukkah Song.”

The new line: “Barack Obama: Not a Jew.”

What makes that necessary is that President Obama and some of his media courtiers seem to think he’s an honorary member of the tribe.

Obama consigliere David Axelrod told an Israeli news outlet this week that Obama once said to him, “You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.”

That’s not the first time the idea of Obama’s Jewyness has popped up, but it is the most explicit. And it goes to not just Obama’s ignorance, but confusion among the Jews he knows best — progressive Jews.

It also comes as we hit the anniversary of the date that confusion got a lot worse — for June 5, 1967, was the start of the Six-Day War, after which Israel went from underdog to regional military power — and the Western left fell out of love with it.

And that was a big problem for Jewish liberals who’d fallen back on identifying with the ever-imperiled Jewish state for their ethnic solidarity.

Which brings us to why Obama thinks he’s Jewish — or, at least, Jew-ish.

From the start, Obama’s been outwardly hostile to the Israeli government and uninterested in changing course.

So his defenders offered a new spin: Only true friends of Israel would criticize the Jewish state relentlessly, harping on its flaws while speaking apocalyptically of its future.

This was always nonsense: No one criticizes Israeli politicians more than other Israelis.

But the heart of the left’s criticism always goes back to the same moment in time: June 1967. That’s when Israel took over the territory from Jordan and Egypt on which many Palestinians hope to build a state.

Because of Israel’s supposedly Pyrrhic victory — or, as Ahron Bregman calls it in a recent book, Israel’s “Cursed Victory” — its demographic future, and democratic character, is in question. And so, the argument goes, Israel’s true friends must speak up to save Israel from itself.

This is ideological sour grapes masquerading as brotherly love. But Obama never recognized that because these are overwhelmingly the Jews he knows.

This isn’t the place to elaborate on how, for all that most US Jews vote as liberals, progressive politics clashes with traditional Jewish ideals and practices.

Yet the fact remains that many, perhaps most, Jews don’t actually want to sanctify secular humanism as a replacement for traditional theology.

It’s the Jews who do try to make progressivism the heart of their Jewish identity who think Obama is so Jewy.

In 2012, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg bizarrely wrote that the only real argument concerning Obama and Judaism is over “what sort of Jew he actually is.”

Then he explained what he meant by Obama’s Jewishness: “No president, not even Bill Clinton, has traveled so widely in Jewish circles, been taught by so many Jewish law professors, and had so many Jewish mentors, colleagues, and friends and advisers as Barack Obama.”

True enough: Obama traveled in liberal circles, lived in liberal cities, studied in liberal academia and, as an activist and teacher, had a great many liberal colleagues. Parochial and intellectually incurious, he plainly absorbed their take on Judaism’s essence.

That essence has, in the hands of progressive Jews, been directed away from ancient texts and toward an airy version of the Jewish concept “tikkun olam” — repairing the world.

Obama’s worldview was shaped by social-justice warriors and puritanical progressives. That many of them happened to also be Jewish doesn’t provide Obama with the frame of reference he and his admirers clearly think he has.

You don’t have to be a philo-Semite to be the kind of president Israelis will embrace. (Few if any presidents were as crucial to Israel’s survival as Richard Nixon was during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, and Nixon was no philo-Semite.) But it would help if Obama understood what he claimed to represent.

There’s a great deal of irony in this. Obama the uninformed, narrow-minded narcissist lays claim to honorary membership in the People of the Book. And his history of Israel is stuck in 1967 without understanding the events before or since.

Judaism is, as the cliché goes, a mosaic. That Obama doesn’t seem to even grasp this basic point perfectly underscores the daft strangeness of his comment — and the consistency of his insular worldview.

It’s not about occupation, oppression, colonialism, racism or anything else.

It’s about plain vanilla hatred and intolerance of anything that isn’t Islam.

And anything that isn’t Islam is supposed to be happy with the shitty end of that stick?

I don’t think so.

Check the lineage of how Muslims have treated Jews and Christians going way back to Islam’s inception.

What was their excuse then?

The American Studies Association has voted to academically boycott Israel because of their colonial occupation of and genocide against the indigenous Palestinians.

Dick-Hole

Libtard anti-Semite, Curtis Marez

The fact that many abusive, oppressive, repressive and dictatorial regimes don’t get a mention is blatant double standard antisemitism.

The fact that the only democracy in the mid-East that guarantees human, civil and religious rights for its women, gay and minority citizens is singled out for condemnation is blatant double standard antisemitism.

The rationalization of this action according to UC San Diego professor Curtis Marez is “one has to start somewhere”.

Now that you have demonized Israelis as a starting point to save humanity let’s just see where you go from here.

While you patiently decide who the next target of your righteousness will be you can lick the asshole of every Israeli and Jew on the planet.

May I suggest first up; the Golani Brigade of the IDF, because Curtis, one has to start somewhere.
