The Left are trying to start a civil war

After the defeat of Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election, the Left are taking America’s decades-old “culture war” to a hot war of actual acts of violence and terrorism.

Kathy Griffin wants to behead President Trump

Both before and after President Trump was inaugurated, the Left poured on their hate and death threats. See:

But their targets aren’t just Trump and his family. It’s now open season on the Right — Trump supporters, Republicans, AltRight and conservatives:

Here are three more less-known recent incidents.

(1) Last Tuesday, June 13, 2017, shots were fired at a truck carrying a “Make America Great Again” flag and an American flag on eastbound I-465 in Indiana.

Fox59 reports that officers believe the shots were fired from a newer white 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with a Louisiana plate near Emerson Avenue around 4 p.m. The victim and a witness informed police that the Malibu pulled up next to the pickup truck, a passenger held a handgun out of the window and then a male fired several shots. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.

The driver of the Malibu is described as a black male around the age of 23; the passenger is a light skinned black male with a sleeve tattoo on his right arm. Indiana state police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the shooting to call 317-899-8577.

(2) Yesterday, June 15, threatening letters containing a white powdery substance were placed in the mailboxes of Republican Karen Handel’s neighborhood in Roswell, Georgia.

Karen Handel is the former Secretary of State of Georgia (2007-2010) who is currently a candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Special Election.

Washington Free Beacon reports that police blocked off Georgia Republican Karen Handel’s neighborhood after threatening letters containing a white powdery substance were left in the mailboxes of Handel and her neighbors.

A neighborhood resident posted a picture (see below) of the contents of the envelope she received, including a threatening letter in graphic language, saying:

“Your neighbor Karen Handel is a dirty fascist cunt but I’m sure you already knew that. Take a whiff of the powder and join her in the hospital you Bourgeoisie motherfuckers. RESIST THE FASCIST TAKEOVER!!!! STRING UP THE COLLABORATORS!”

James Hodgkinson, Rep. Scalise’s shooter, had also ranted about Handel on Facebook, calling her a “Republican bitch”:

“Republican Bitch Wants People to Work for Slave Wages, when a Livable Wage is the Only Way to Go! Vote Blue, It’s Right for You!”

(3) Antifa post guidelines on how to spike pet treats with sharp objects and scatter them in conservative neighborhoods.

Yesterday, /pol/ News Forever @polNewsForever retweeted a tweet calling for targeting areas in Texas “where most altright and far right supporters live” with dog treats “weaponized” with nails. Here’s the original tweet:

American Renaissance has put together an anti-Trump hate map showing the Left’s growing violence against the Right — criminal incidents in which Trump supporters were targeted for political reasons. Each marker on the map shows the location of an anti-Trump hate crime: Red markers signify violent crimes; blue markers, property crimes; purple markers, “other” crimes.

The above shows that the Left are actively fomenting a civil war, which will happen when the Right have had enough and decide to push back.

As with Muslims, where are the voices of “moderate” Democrats/Progressives condemning the Left’s hate rhetoric and acts of violence? Where are the denunciations from Democrat leaders Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, et al.?

See also these other posts on the Left’s hate rhetoric and violence:

See “Conservative Blogger Found Guilty on 21 Counts for Self-Defense with a Firearm, Faces up to 50 Years in Prison” for what happened to a conservative, Michael Strickland, who fought back.

Handel is running neck-to-neck (47% vs. 47%) against Democrat Ossoff in Georgia’s Special House Election. Donate to her campaign here.

Michael Moore Launches “TrumpiLeaks” Website, Calls for Whistle-Blowers

response to Michael Moore

Similar to many with Trump Derangement Syndrome, Fat Boy’s life is consumed with his vision of a Trump impeachment.

From Hollywood Reporter: Michael Moore launched a website entitled “TrumpiLeaks” on Tuesday. The site is meant to “enable courageous whistle-blowers” to privately communicate with Moore and his team.

The filmmaker and activist — who’s been a frequent, outspoken critic of Trump — announced the launch with a letter on Huffington Post. In the letter he wrote that Donald Trump thinks, acts and has stated that he’s “above the law.” 

“Patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of crimes, breaches of public trust and misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump and his associates are needed to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny,” writes Moore.

On his site Moore offers a variety of ways to submit information, using tools he says are secure to protect anonymity if the source desires to do so. He’s accepting information in the form of documents, photographs and audio or video recordings.

“The power and the importance of whistleblowing is part of the American tradition and as old as the republic itself,” writes Moore. He quotes Vice President Mike Pence, who once defended whistleblowers and the freedom of the press.

“Compelling reporters to testify, and in particular, compelling reporters to reveal the identity of confidential sources, intrudes on the newsgathering process and hurts the public,” reads the Pence quote Moore highlights. “Without the assurance of confidentiality, many whistleblowers will simply refuse to come forward, and reporters will be unable to provide the American public with the information they need to make decisions as an informed electorate.”

Senate Democrats may refuse to vote on Trump FBI pick

Sen. Chuck Schumer

Schumer sticking to the talking point: Russia!

The party of obstruction.

From Yahoo: The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate said on Sunday that Democrats would consider refusing to vote on a new FBI director until a special prosecutor is named to investigate President Donald Trump’s potential ties to Russia.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said his caucus has not yet made a decision on whether to withhold their votes, but added that the issue is being looked at as a way to ensure there is a thorough investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

“To have that special prosecutor, people would breathe a sigh of relief because then there would be a real independent person overlooking the FBI director,” Schumer told CNN’s “State of the Union” program.

Trump sparked a political firestorm when he abruptly fired James Comey, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week. The FBI has been investigating alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election and possible ties between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

Russia has denied the claims and the White House says there was no collusion.

Trump, who has sought better relations with Russia, has continued to question whether Russia was behind the hacking of email accounts belonging to Democrats involved in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told NBC’s “Meet the Press” program on Sunday there is no question that “the Russians were playing around in our electoral processes.”

He defended Trump’s decision to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office last week. “It’s in the interest of the American people, it’s in the interest of Russia and the rest of the world that we do something to see if we cannot improve the relationship between the two greatest nuclear powers in the world,” Tillerson said.

Democrats have accused Trump of attempting to thwart the FBI’s probe and have called for some type of independent inquiry into the matter.

Trump has said he removed Comey because he was not doing a good job and that Comey lost the support of FBI employees.

The Justice Department began interviewing candidates for the FBI director job on Saturday. Some people under consideration include acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas, New York Appeals Court Judge Michael Garcia and former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher, according to a White House official.

If the Senate vote on an FBI director were to break down along strict party lines, Democrats would not have the votes to block a nominee.

Republicans control both chambers of the U.S. Congress. They hold 52 seats in the 100-member Senate, enough to approve a FBI nominee provided that no more than two Republican senators break ranks. In the event of a tie vote, Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote.

“The key is getting some of our Republican colleagues to join us,” Schumer said. Republican leaders in the Senate have rebuffed calls for a special prosecutor, saying it would interfere with ongoing congressional probes.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said on Sunday there may come a time when a special prosecutor is needed but not now. “Right now, it is a counterintelligence investigation, not a criminal investigation. So you don’t need a special prosecutor,” Graham said on “Meet the Press.”

Butler University will offer a Trump resistance class

butler university courseNo doubt this will surely enhance any one’s resume, particularly if you want to work at Vox.

The professor teaching the course, Ann M. Savage, has a 3.2 rating on RateMyProfessor.com. Her picture is not provided on the Butler University web site.

A description of the course (which is full):

“An in-depth study of a particular topic in the field of media, rhetoric and culture. This course offers a broad historical, political, and critical communication studies approach to understanding the rise of Donald Trump as a political and social phenomenon. The course draws from the widely circulated Trump Syllabi (per the Chronical of Higher Education and Public Books) crowd sourced by some of the nation’s leading scholars in American Political Science and history, demography, cultural studies, sociology, and more. The course will provide context and depth for student citizens as we look to historical and current texts by renowned authors as well as read excerpts from Trump’s own The Art of the Deal. Students will potentially attend, as participant observers, campus and community events to witness ongoing responses to Trump’s presidency and campaign. To instill disciplinary diversity, the course will invite faculty from across campus to guest lecture.”

The University has responded to the criticism of this course:

From MSN: Butler University, a private school in Indianapolis, has responded to criticism of a “Trumpism & U.S. Democracy” course that was offered to students in order to “potentially engage” in “strategies for resistance” to President Donald Trump.

“Just as I support this course, I would support a course that is complimentary of the President,” Butler provost and vice president for academic affairs Kathryn Morris said in a letter posted to the school’s website. “Butler offers a variety of courses that tackle controversial topics. Like any University, Butler should – and does – promote an environment of critical inquiry and engagement on controversial and unpopular topics.”

Outrage about the class began as a version of the course description circulated on Twitter describing the President as a perpetuator of “sexism, white supremacy, xenophobia, nationalism, nativism and imperialism” began to bubble on conservative news outlets. Shortly before, former Indiana state Sen. Carlin Yoder, a Republican, tweeted a photo of the course description on Tuesday.

Morris said in her letter that students are not required “to participate in activism” should they enroll in the class, which will still be taught in the upcoming fall semester, but with an edited description that features toned down language.

“The professor has been very transparent about the goals of the course and has provided additional context that clarifies students in the class will not be required to participate in a particular form of activism,” Morris wrote. “They will be asked to engage with classic and contemporary readings, including a text by President Trump, and evaluate the rise of the President as a political and social phenomenon.”

Indiana is the home state of Vice President and former governor Mike Pence. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

President Trump signs law restoring states’ right to defund Planned Parenthood

On his first full day of work in the White House on January 23, 2017, a day after the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Trump fulfilled a campaign promise by signing an executive order to defund overseas abortion agencies. {See “Trump fulfills 3 promises in first day of work as POTUS, including defund International Planned Parenthood”)

On April 3, 2017, President Trump put an end to the U.S.’s $75 million funding  of a United Nations abortion agency — the UN Population Fund.

Ten days later on April 13, 2017, President Trump signed into law a joint Congressional resolution, H.J.Res. 43, enabling states to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills.

H.J.Res. 43 repeals one of Obama’s last malevolent acts as POTUS.

In December 2016, Obama had bestowed his parting gift to the abortion industry with a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule banning states from withholding Title X federal “family planning” grants to abortion clinics. At the time, HHS explained that the rule was created in reaction to states that tried to stop funding abortion providers.

H.J.Res. 43, that President Trump signed into law, reads:

Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule submitted by Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients.

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress disapproves the rule submitted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients (81 Fed. Reg. 91852; December 19, 2016), and such rule shall have no force or effect.

On April 14, 2017, speaking for all pro-lifers, Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, said:

“Today we thank President Donald Trump for restoring states’ freedom to direct taxpayer dollars away from abortion providers in favor of supporting community health centers that deliver comprehensive women’s care, and already outnumber abortion providers 20 to 1.”

Applauding H.J.Res. 43, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser urges Congress to take up more legislation to strip Planned Parenthood and abortion providers of other federal funds like Medicaid reimbursements, and redirect those federal funds to health providers that do not perform abortions.

Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) introduced H.J. Res. 43 to the U.S. House of Representatives, which nullified the HHS rule. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) sponsored H.J. Res. 43 in the Senate. The measure passed the House easily and then narrowly passed the Senate, with Vice President Mike Pence as the tie-breaking vote.

If the Trump administration never does anything else, H.J. Res. 43 alone is a confirmation of the rightness of our votes last November 8 for Trump-Pence.

And don’t let anyone tell you that Republicans are no different from the party of  Demonrats.

Hillary Clinton Explains Why She Really Lost to Trump

enhanced-video-of-hillary-clintons-9-11-collapse

The most qualified womyn…

It’s the usual suspects and, of course, sexism.

From NBC News: Almost four months after her stunning defeat, Hillary Clinton on Thursday primarily blamed her loss to President Donald Trump on four factors that were beyond her control.

The former Democratic presidential candidate cited Russian meddling in the election, FBI Director James Comey’s involvement toward the end of the race, WikiLeaks’ theft of emails from her campaign chairman, and misogyny.

Clinton’s comments came during her first post-election interview at Tina Brown’s eighth annual Women in the World Summit in New York City. She was questioned by Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times.

She largely cited these factors for her defeat:

  • Russia. “A foreign power meddled with our election,” she said, labeling it “an act of aggression.” She called for an independent, bipartisan investigation into the Kremlin’s involvement and said the probe should examine whether there was collusion with the Trump campaign.
  • Misogyny. “Certainly, misogyny played a role. That has to be admitted,” she said. Clinton added that “some people — women included — had real problems” with the idea of a woman president.
  • Comey. Clinton cited as damaging to her campaign his unusual decision to release of a letter on October 28, less than two weeks before Election Day, that said he was looking at additional emails related to the FBI probe of the former secretary of state’s use of a private server.
  • WikiLeaks. Weeks of disclosures of stolen emails from the personal account of then-Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, were particularly harmful, Clinton said, adding that it “played a much bigger role than I think many people yet understand.”

She said the combination of Comey’s actions and the WikiLeaks’ revelations “had the determinative effect.”

About her own role, she said, “There were things I could have done better.”

While Clinton said there were “lots of contributing factors” to her failure to secure the nation’s highest office, she called Russia’s interference the “weaponization of information.”

“I didn’t fully understand how impactful that was and so it created doubts in people,” Clinton said. “But then the Comey letter coming as it did — just 10 days before the election — really raised questions in a lot of people.”

Two days before the election, Comey announced that none of the emails would lead to criminal charges — leaving in place the FBI’s determination from July. Officials told NBC News that nearly all of the emails were duplicates of emails that had been examined already.

Kristof also asked Clinton about Trump. “I don’t understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House, seems to be pursuing,” Clinton said, pointing to the immigration ban, the slashing of U.S. funding for the UN Population Fund, and the failed health care bill.  What they did or tried to do on the health care bill, which I will confess to this — having listened to them talking about repeal and replace for 8 years, or 7 years now, and they had not a clue what that meant,” she said. “They had no idea. I don’t know that any of them had ever even read the bill.”

Clinton, who is writing a book that she said would examine her defeat last year, said she doubted she would ever seek public office again. “Devastating,” was how she described her loss.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange: Hillary Clinton pushing for VP Pence to take over the White House

Early this morning, WikiLeaks‘ founder Julian Assange sent two alarming tweets:

One, that Hillary Clinton is “quietly pushing” for VP Mike Pence to take over the Trump administration because, unlike President Trump, “Pence is predictable” and therefore “defeatable”.

Two, that two officials in the U.S. intelligence community (IC) who are close to Pence said “they are planning on a Pence takeover”.

Here are screenshot of the two tweets:

The tweets are alarming, to say the least.

A Pence takeover would mean one of four scenarios:

  1. President Trump voluntarily steps down.
  2. President Trump is impeached.
  3. President Trump is overthrown in a coup.
  4. President Trump is assassinated.

About 6 hours after Assange’s first tweet, in a tweet, CNN quotes VP Pence that Assange’s assertion about a “Pence takeover” of the White House is “absurd” and “frankly offensive”:

By this time, Assange probably realized that people may have interpreted his first tweet as implying a Trump assassination. So he sent out another tweet that Hillary Clinton and the two intelligence officials had meant impeachment:

Notwithstanding Assange’s reassurance, there have been so many death threats (see below) made against President Trump, the matter certainly is not out of the realm of possibility or probability. See:

I have seen rumors of assassination, but have refrained posting those rumors because of what they are — rumors. But of late, my “spider sense” is astir: there is something ominous in the air . . . .

It doesn’t help that tomorrow, March 15, is the infamous Ides of March when Julius Caesar was assassinated. The Left are calling on their demonic hordes to mail attack postcards to President Trump; our side has a counter Operation Postcard campaign, wherein we are sending President Trump postcards of thanks and support. Click here for President Trump’s address and a template for your postcard.

Tomorrow, March 15, is also when America’s debt ceiling, once again, is reached.

Debt ceiling refers to a legislative limit on the amount of national debt that can be issued by the US Treasury, thus limiting how much money the federal government may borrow. Tomorrow, when the debt ceiling is reached but Congress does not increase the debt limit, Treasury will need to resort to “extraordinary measures” to temporarily finance government expenditures and obligations until a resolution can be reached. If a legislative impasse continues, the Treasury will default — which has never happened. A protracted default could trigger a variety of economic problems including a financial crisis, and a decline in output that would put the country into an economic recession.

Please pray for President Trump.

Please pray for America.

And don’t forget to mail your postcard of support tomorrow!
