    A lot of readers (some of them former readers now) have been angrily twanging me by email for writing about the three-year Resistance effort to un-do the 2016 election. I did not vote for Mr. Trump (or Mrs. Clinton) but I resent the coup mounted to overthrow him. I object to the bad faith and dishonesty of the Resistance. I object to the criminal misconduct among the federal bureaucracy, and the mendacity of its partners in the news media, and the hysteria they continue to generate — at the expense of other matters that concern our future. The political disorder...
  • Clinical Depression and President Lincoln

    Lincoln "told Me that he felt like Committing Suicide often," remembered Mentor Graham, a schoolteacher... Abraham Lincoln fought clinical depression all his life, and if he were alive today, his condition would be treated as a "character issue"—that is, as a political liability. His condition was indeed a character issue: it gave him the tools to save the nation. With Lincoln we have a man whose depression spurred him, painfully, to examine the core of his soul; whose hard work to stay alive helped him develop crucial skills and capacities, even as his depression lingered hauntingly; and whose inimitable character...
  • If Trump’s Rage Brings ‘Civil War,’ Where Will the Military Stand?

    The moment may come when soldiers have to choose between the Constitution and Donald Trump. No doubt most will embrace the Constitution. But some will see that as a tough call. Earlier this week Donald Trump, commander in chief of the U.S. armed forces, tweeted that his impeachment “will cause a Civil War” from which the country might never recover. Picking up on remarks made by an evangelical pastor on Fox News, Trump did not just say his removal would lead to a huge electoral defeat for the Democrats, or even mass demonstrations. He said “civil war”. Americans taking up...

    A social media post about a message projected on a Hephzibah High School classroom whiteboard referencing the Confederate flag has resulted in a teacher being placed on administrative leave. The post from a parent of a student shows the projection that includes a Confederate flag and the statement, “a sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash ‘Save The Date’ card.” It was reportedly used as an example of a story within a story. According to the Richmond County School System, an...

    Far-left “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) told constituents on Tuesday that her Democrat colleagues are looking into how to arrest White House officials who refuse to comply with subpoenas as part of an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. Speaking to her constituents at a town hall in her hometown of Detriot, Tlaib said Democrats are puzzled about how to arrest Cabinet secretaries, telling voters in a video captured by America Rising PAC that they could be taken into custody if Congress votes to hold them in contempt.

    In the midst of rightfully calling out President Trump for some of his overheated rhetoric reacting to the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, on Tuesday, MSNBC immediately undermined its criticism by engaging its own extreme rhetoric and suggesting that “heavily armed” Trump supporters would march on Washington “to protect their president.” “President Trump ratcheting up his rhetoric as he tries to derail the push for impeachment proceedings. On Twitter, he’s quoted a top supporter who said impeachment could create a, quote, ‘Civil War-like fracture,’” anchor Craig Melvin warned in the 11:00 a.m. ET hour. Turning to Washington Post political reporter Eugene Scott,...
  • Willie Geist Worries Trump Won't 'Go Quietly' If Impeached

    Dire talk of fascism, threats to democracy, constitutional crises, etc. are Morning Joe's everyday fare in the Age of Trump. But to the fevered proceedings, Willie Geist normally brings a welcome dose of equanimity. It was thus a shock to hear Willie of all people floating a dark scenario on today's show. He claimed that there's no one around the table or watching at home who thinks that President Trump will "go quietly" if he's impeached or defeated at the polls. Geist troublingly claimed, "that’s the context in which you hear this coup talk, and you hear this civil war...

    On Sunday, President Trump tweeted a quote from Pastor Robert Jeffress, who on Fox News had said that the removal of Trump from office would "cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation." Jeffress seemed to be envisioning a political "fracture," not an actual civil war. Joe Scarborough added fuel to the fire on Tuesday's Morning Joe, interpreting Jeffress' statement and Trump's tweet of it in the most inflammatory possible manner. Scarborough alleged that [presumably by citing Jeffress' statement], President Trump was making "calls for civil war." What's more, Scarborough accused Trump of "sending a message" to supporters to...

    CNN Opinion ^ | September 30, 2019 | Nicole Hemmer
    President Donald Trump tweeted and retweeted 80 times between Friday and Sunday, a seemingly panicked flurry of activity that showed just how big a threat the Ukraine scandal and impeachment inquiry are. Among those tweets was a quote from Fox News contributor Robert Jeffress, an evangelical pastor from Texas, who warned that if Trump were successfully removed from office, civil war would follow. Apocalyptic rhetoric often flows readily from preachers' pulpits and politicians' platforms. Yet this warning of a looming civil war takes on a different meaning when it appears on the President's Twitter feed -- not only because of...

    With a national election coming in 13 months, Democrats seem convinced they cannot win. So they revert to another two years of the Russia Hoax II. A fabricated scandal created by deep state elements, coordinated with leading Democrats, and laid out in the left-wing media like a PR campaign. As they continue to trample the constitution in their efforts to destroy President Trump, Democrats are on the verge of triggering a Civil War in America. The Whistleblower hoax and its attendant impeachment hysteria is a distraction to cover up the criminality of numerous high ranking Obama officials. In hopes of...
