DiGenova: 'We Are In a Civil War ... I Vote and I Buy Guns' (Joe DiGenova on Laura Ingraham)
CNS ^ | February 22, 2019 | Michael W. Chapman

Posted on 02/22/2019 11:08:02 AM PST by xzins

Commenting on the double standard the political left and the liberal media play -- conservatives are pilloried and leftists are coddled -- former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova explained that America is in a "civil war" now and that things will get much worse before they get better -- "total war."

DiGenova, who also served as special counsel to investigate the Teamsters and as counsel to the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, made his remarks on the Feb. 21 edition of The Laura Ingraham Podcast.

During the discussion, Igraham noted how the left and the liberal media work hand-in-hand to spin and cover for wrongdoing on the left and yet endlessly attack the right. For instance, the leftist press constantly refer to President Trump as Hitler, Stalin, a dictator, a Nazi, Mussolini, racist, white supremacist, treasonous, disturbed, demented, bigoted, etc.

Also, the left has essentially forgotten the shooting of Republican congressmen by a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2017 and they largely ignore the death threats and assassination attempts against President Trump. They downplayed the anti-Semitism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mich.) and immediately rushed to defend Jussie Smollett who, as we now know, has been accused of perpetrating a hate crime hoax.

“There’s two standards of justice, one for Democrats one for Republicans," he said. "The press is all Democrat, all liberal, all progressive, all left. They hate Republicans, they hate Trump."

"So the suggestion that there’s ever going to be civil discourse in this country for the foreseeable future is over," said the former federal prosecutor. "It’s not going to be."

"It’s going to be total war," he said. "And as I say to my friends, I do two things – I vote and I buy guns.”

I have referred to post-apartheid RSA as a harbinger of what can happen in America if present trends continue. Not good.

In order for our side to fight back in any meaningful way we must first organize.

You are correct.

What would happen about a million or two, showed up one day to show their support for the President and what he’s trying to do? Imagine what would happen if those two million or so, did it armed and took a calm, leisurely stroll past the Capitol Building.
.............................................
I’ve heard it has been suggested that the Capitol should be surrounded, and when a signal is given, everyone should holler in unison: This is a warning, we are prepared to permanently remove Legislators who fail to defend our unalienable rights as cited in the Constitution.

Just went to a Town Hall with Jered Huffman and assmbly man Woods. There was no discourse just full on war versus Trump, the constitution, how he wants to rewrite on 2nd amendment, single payer( cheeer just like Mike McGuire's McKinleyville town hall last month), less freedom of speech and more billions to yes, Climate change.

There were no questions lambasting him. I was passed over a half dozen times and finally left nearly in tears my heart broken . He stated a fact that was troubling, sixty-one of ninety seats in California are democratic but he stated "we are not a socialist state." He, along with most people( majority) is against border wall and the shutdown and demands money from the Federal government but refuses to work with the president

In essence, He has declared war on conservatives, plain and simple

"Joe’s right buy a gun!"

If you're going to quote someone, please do it right- Joe said "I Vote and I Buy Guns!"

(From the article; and some selected posted comments):
"Commenting on the double standard the political left and the liberal media play
-- conservatives are pilloried and leftists are coddled
-- (so says)former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova explained that America is in a "civil war" now
and that things will get much worse before they get better -- "total war."

"So the suggestion that there’s ever going to be civil discourse in this country for the foreseeable future is over,"
said the former federal prosecutor. "It’s not going to be."

"It’s going to be total war," he said.
"And as I say to my friends, I do two things – I vote and I buy guns.

The game plan of the Left hasn't changed in over a century:
get control of the state and use state resources to destroy their enemies.
Clinton's and 0bama's corruption of federal intelligence and law enforcement organs is a case in point
and an indication of how close to the brink the country really is.

Please tell your friend’s son one of the lessons I learned in childhood was how to hunt. Those lessons apply to things with four legs as well as two. When he was busy playing video games at age 12, I was making gunpowder.

Yikes. If Joe diGenova does not see a civil solution, there may not be a civil solution.

Thanks Jeff Sessions, death blow to the rule of law.

Worth repeating: "The $17,000,000.00 in sexual harassment payouts, using our money, is a prime example. I wonder how many loudmouths in Congress would still be there if that list were ever made public. If police records are public records, how come no one knows what actually happened to Harry Reid?"

Hard to picture much of anything happening while the poorest are the most likely to be obese and are the most entertained poor people ever.

Not to worry. Foreign troops are marching through Mexico as we speak.

Got all the guns we need. Now we are making the floorboards creak from the weight of all that ammunition.

Best,

Some of my neighbors have shown us their cement ‘root cellars’, far removed from their homes. Saves the floorboards.

Mexicans are slightly more likely to be obese than Americans. 70% of Mexicans are either overweight or obese. I think the poverty rate is something like 40-50%.

They’d be arrested. Dee Dee doesn’t look kindly on firearms possession.
