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.”

The crazier President Trump acts, the more his enemies paint themselves into a corner.

“Obama tapped my phone” has the libtards screaming foul.

They deny that it ever happened and Trump is delusional.

There is no evidence of his phone being tapped and there would have had to been evidence of wrongdoing for the wiretap.

If there is insufficient evidence for the tap does that mean there is no evidence that he colluded with the Russians?

Why does no evidence of wiretaps automatically dismiss that charge but no evidence of colluding with the Ruskies demands an investigation?

Why did the NY Times months ago report that wiretaps confirm Trump/ Russia connections?

Or was that just fake news?

Leon “No Axe To Grind” Panetta was laughable in is jokester role to Bill “Phoney-Baloney” O’Reilly as his straight man.

panetta-o'reillyLeon threw Obama under the bus in this interview promoting his book that throws Obama of all places under the self-same bus.

I deplore this exercise in loyalty as detritus not for any pity for Obama who deserves to be thrown under something more substantial than a bus, but for the nauseating and transparent way that Pancetta, that’s right, pancetta (look it up) is angling for a spot in what he believes will be the next Clinton regime.

He’s distancing himself from an administration he was part and parcel to faster than a Kenyan at the starting line of the New York City Marathon.

And shame on you O’Reilly for not asking the most obvious question.

The one that matters most in the context of this charade and the one to which Pancetta is most accountable.

The question unasked that inquiring minds want answered is this.

Leon, if you feel so strongly about the deficiency and miscarriage of executive power over the last five years, why the fuck didn’t you say something then, you blow-hard, self-serving, vacuous piece of shit?

And who the fuck paid O’Reilly off to keep him from asking it?

If you are saving the planet by going solar but are oblivious to the pollution and slave labor involved with mining the rare earth metals needed for solar panels, then you just might be a liberal.

If you think the lack of jobs is due to the greed of business owners but believe business isn’t taxed or regulated enough, then you just might be a liberal.

If you voted for Obama because he’s black but called anyone who voted for Romney a racist, then you just might be a liberal.

If you feel it’s too easy to get a gun permit but too hard to get food stamps,  then you just might be a liberal.

If you support the Palestinian resistance because you are a champion of human rights but don’t know who the Chaldeans, Assyrians or Ba’hai are, or where Tibet is, then you just might be a liberal fucking moron.

If you paid $32,000 to sit in someone’s $26 million house to hear Obama rail against billionaires, then you are definitely a liberal fucking moron jerk off.

After, the check is in the mail and I won’t come in your mouth, this has to be the next biggest lie.

From the NY Post:

President Obama and First Lady Michelle say they want their privileged daughters to work minimum-wage jobs because it builds character.

“I think every kid needs to get a taste of what it’s like to do that real hard work . . . That’s what life is,” Michelle Obama said in an interview with Parade magazine published on Friday.

The couple is even searching for tough menial gigs for their daughters, Sasha and Malia, President Obama told the magazine.

“We are looking for opportunities for them to feel as if going to work and getting a paycheck is not always fun, not always stimulating, not always fair,” President Obama said.

Average teens can’t afford to be so choosy.

National employment rates for youth ages 16 to 19 plunged from 52 percent in 1999 to just 32 percent this year, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The president once scooped ice cream at Baskin-Robbins and Michelle worked at a bindery.

From WND:

Why Obama is no longer president
Exclusive: Joseph Farah hammers BHO for ‘breaking the law – repeatedly’

Ted Cruz said it best in a Wall Street Journal piece following Barack Hussein Obama’s State of the Union Address earlier this year: “Dictatorships are often characterized by an abundance of laws. When a president can pick and choose which laws to follow and which to ignore, he is no longer a president.”

Since then, Obama has shown even more contempt for the rule of law – the latest being his decision to trade five hardened terrorists for a U.S. Army deserter who characterized America “the most conceited country in the world” before going over the hill and befriending the Taliban for the last five years.

The law says the president must consult with Congress before arranging any such prisoner swaps.

I would go one further than Cruz: Obama has never been my president. I have steadfastly refused to acknowledge him as such. He is undeserving of the honorific. To this day, I am unconvinced he is even eligible for office. (more…)

Now all of a sudden John “Swift Boat” Kerry is trash talking the Ruskies like he just wants Putin to make his day.

Now the good war is to come to the defense of Ukrainian anti- Commies.

As far as I’m concerned a Ukrainian civil war is just Syria with peasant blouses, pirogies and vodka.

The Ukrainian anti- Commies are the spawn of the western Ukrainians who showered the Waffen SS with rose petals in 1941.

Look at the records of WWII war crimes defendants and your basic death camp guard was a Ukrainian.

The Jews who survived the Shoah have a saying; The Germans were bad, the Poles were badder, and the Ukrainians were the worst.

Ukrainians killing each other? Boo-hoo. That’s another fracas no American boy should suffer so much as a hang nail over.

Fuck ’em.

Jews were killed throughout the Ukraine in large and small actions. The killers here about to shoot these Jewish men and a boy are Ukranians.
