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

    By Michael Goodwin
    October 9, 2018 | 10:20pm

    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 Kav*anaugh 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.”

    One isn't outraged when a snake acts as a snake. We expect it. Hitlery is simply expressing what we knew all along, and she is compelled to do so, because a return to the rule of law will be very uncomfortable for her, and many of her allies.

    I think he only did so to draw out the militant commies and force them to expose their agenda and willingness to go bloody.


    I don't think they are going to fare well when they get bloody.

    Well, it looks like they have more people willing to beat up their neighbors. And no conservatives can get people to meet and scream at the sky. It must seem to them that we will all just break into tears and run away.

    She keeps on projecting because she knows there should be a special cell block reserved just for the Clintons.

    She isn't going to like getting bitch slapped, I'll take her advice to be uncivil - against her and liberals.

    The problem is with her type, they never feel the pain, never go to jail, never take the heat for their 'cause'. Drag her old limpdick ass out into the street and let the Deplorable's have at 'er.

    She sort of stumbled around a lot last time, not much running.

    I was referring to Hillary and her fellow travelers, not you Jonas. I should have worded it a little differently. HC

    Just my two cents but, YES, I have thought all along that she plans to run again in 2020 and likely considers herself the front runner as well.

    My wife asked me the exact same question the other day when the "Billy Jeff and Hildebeest traveling road show" announced its dates and locations. I do believe the old bat thinks she CAN run again and is angling to do it. Somebody on that side of the aisle REALLY needs to beat some sense into her depends wearing ass. And I'm being charitable by saying that because if she DID run again there isn't enough popcorn in the world to watch that horror show unfold
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

    and yet there are those of us here who continue to think this is "years to decades away" and many foolish enough to believe it will NEVER come. I will repeat:

    Beyond ridiculous. We’re talking psych-ward fodder.

    A sincere question for frustrated ‘so-called’ lib’s. Are you really so useful an idiot as to run point for the manipulators of minds? If so, get ready to drool, as the ‘collective’ bell ringing coalesce around your clouded judgement.

    That's the WORST part! I should be CHEERING! I should be so joyously enamored with the thought that Hillary is VOLUNTARILY coming back to have her clock cleaned once more by Trump, to lose TWICE RUNNING, but I CAN'T! It's the ultimate demoralization of the Dems, but I can't be happy at all! It's like watching her slit her own throat.
