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.”

These might be thoughts for the day but they really shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.

Democrats appear very troubled by possible election interference by the Russians because;

A. The Russians don’t call themselves communists anymore, and

B. The Russians might negate the election interference by illegal Central Americans voting for Democrats.

If God is all powerful and can do anything why did he need to rest for a day?

And lastly but not leastly, why hasn’t Gaza been carpet bombed back to the 7th century which they seem to hold so dear?

It looks like the useful idiots are more useful and more idiotic than they ever have been.

Going on the assumption that Russia Soviet Union did indeed meddle in the 2016 presidential election, the question that begs for an answer is, to what end?

Would it really be to elect a right wing administration over the lilly-livered, bleeding hearts who have been their tools and patsies for the last hundred years?

The real motive behind their machinations is to sow distrust, discord, disunity and dysfunction in the American civil process.

Look around you.

Who is doing their dirty work and shilling for Putin?

Nothing has changed, it’s the same dupes and dopes.

Give me a fucking break.

Donald Trump doesn’t adhere to the script that the Dems and the Libs had in their feeble minds and now he’s a treasonous puppet of the Russians.

The Russians who for seventy years couldn’t be bad mouthed without incurring the wrath of left wing intelligentsia.

The same assholes who were enthralled by Stalin and defended the Rosenbergs.

The same assholes who waved Vietcong and NVA flags for the sake of “peace” while our friends, neighbors and relatives were dying in battle.

The same assholes who said nothing when Obama bowed to the king of Arabia or who pressured American banks to break the law in his quest to enable, enrich and empower the Islamic fascists of Iran.

The same assholes who never miss an opportunity to remind us all what a racist, criminal imperial power this country is while they burn it’s flag.

The same assholes who side with enemies of the United States at almost every turn since 1861, now have become patriotic defenders of the realm par excellence.

Give me a fucking break.

The next time any of you have the urge to go running aghast, chicken little style on the way to the sanitarium, think for a moment.

You all said over a year and a half ago, if Trump were elected you were moving to Canada.

EITHER GET OUT OR SHUT THE FUCK UP

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?
