    Sarah Hoyt has yet to come to terms with the fact that it is her "born American in Portugal" civic nationalism that has led the United States to the brink of civil war: But is it better if the rough music plays and civil war breaks out? Civil war is not impossible. Despite the fact that we’re emulsified, red and blue living side by side (but not in harmony), civil war is not impossible. It’s just not the civil war we’ve read about in history books, the stories of the grey and the blue and neat armies on the field....

    The American Conservative ^ | October 29, 2018 | MICHAEL VLAHOS
    Civil division and its conquests are the true makers of America, and continue to shape its national progress—or threaten its undoing. Indeed, the very founding of the United States advanced the principle of civil conflict over all others. Our very identity, from the start, was framed as triumph over the “other.” We cast them out, like France cruelly expelled their heretic Huguenots in the 17th century. For our part, we drove out 100,000 loyalists we once counted as blood brothers. This civil war itself lasted 20 years, from 1763 to 1783, but the ensuing cold war and residual battles with...

    The nation is deeply divided, with each side seeing the other as “the enemy.” I began my journalism career covering a civil war in Lebanon. I never thought I’d end my career covering a civil war in America. We may not be there yet, but if we don’t turn around now, we will surely get where we’re going — which was best described by Senator Jeff Flake on Monday: “Tribalism is ruining us. It is tearing our country apart. It is no way for sane adults to act.” Sure, we’ve experienced bouts of intense social strife since the American Civil...

    Strong rhetoric and violence on both sides of the political spectrum are reaching a fever pitchIs the United States on the brink of a new civil war? According to Newsweek magazine’s polling, a third of all Americans think such a conflict could break out within the next five years, with 10% thinking it “very likely to happen.” Plenty of experts agree. Back in March, State Department official Keith Mines told Foreign Policy magazine: “It is like 1859, everyone is mad about something and everyone has a gun.” He rated the odds of a second American Civil War breaking out within...
  • Should We Citizens Organize a Counter-Caravan to Protest the Illegals?

    We don't know exactly where the 10,000 person caravan from Guatemala is targeted for crossing the border, but we know they are headed North. The Caravan is getting a lot of publicity., Maybe we should do the same? We could create a counter caravan (of pickup trucks?) to head for the presumed border crossing point, to protest the failure of the government to protect us from invasion seems like a good idea.

    Yes, Brett Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Rue the day. Rend your garments. Then, step back, view the entirety of the battle in which you are engaged, and understand that Kavanaugh is just one part of a much larger plan by conservatives to fundamentally change the American political structure so that it enshrines and protects white male power even after America’s changing demographics and mores move away from that power. This, for them, is not simply a game about political passion and political principles. This is a game of power, pure and simple, and it’s about whether the people...

    The primary objective of any people who find themselves in the throes of a revolution is to find ways of diverting its logic from its worst conclusions. [....] The logic that drives each turn of our revolutionary spiral is Progressive Americans’ inherently insatiable desire to exercise their superiority over those they deem inferior. With Newtonian necessity, each such exercise causes a corresponding and opposite reaction. The logic’s force comes not from the substance of the Progressives’ demands. If that were the case, acquiescing to or compromising with them could cut it short. Rather, it comes from that which moves, changes,...

    The American Thinker ^ | October 21, 2018 | Peter Nichols
    New York Times columnist Charles Blow delivers a genuine polemic, a "warlike speech," in reaction to the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh. Apart from the declaration of hostilities in the title of the piece, it concludes with this admonition to liberal foot soldiers: "Stop thinking you're in a skirmish, when you're at war." In elucidating the "war" to which he refers, Blow explains that "Kavanagh is just one part of a much larger plan by conservatives to fundamentally change the American political structure so that it enshrines and protects white male power even after America's changing demographics and mores move away...

    Bear spray, bloody brawls at Patriot Prayer 'law and order' march in PortlandA demonstration billed as a march for "law and order" in the streets of Portland descended into chaos as rival political factions broke into bloody brawls downtown Saturday night. Members of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer and their black-clad adversaries, known as antifa, used bear spray, bare fists and batons to thrash each other outside Kelly's Olympian, a popular bar on Southwest Washington Street. The melee, which lasted more than a minute, ended when riot cops rushed in and fired pepper balls at the street fighters. The Portland...

    American Greatness ^ | October 7th, 2018 | Thaddeus G. McCotter
    We are in the midst of a cold civil war. The crux? Realizing politics is part of life, one side believes America is fundamentally a good country requiring some prudent improvements upon which reasonable minds may differ. On the other side, the Left, thinking politics is life, believes America is a hopelessly unjust nation requiring “fundamental transformation” and this is a point on which no reasonable minds can differ. The Kavanaugh confirmation evinces the political abyss between us; and the bathetic depths to which this divide drives the Left to “win.” Employing the subjective term “credible” for an accusation that...

    Communist agitators took to Twitter this week to brainstorm strategies for a violent armed insurrection against their perceived enemies. “Dr. Bones," the co-host of the far-left podcast The Guillotine, started the conversation going with his 5,000-plus Twitter followers. Bones (@Ole_Bonsey on Twitter) asked: “Hey quick little question for military minded lefties: should leftists train/organize in a 'insurgent' focus where they blend into a civilian population for potential attacks or a more 'militia' structure focused on holding/maintaining turf?” Bones went on to suggest that fellow travelers organize "hidden cells" and focus on ambushes and assassinations to bleed "right-leaning forces" dry. He...

    It is my contention that we are just one bad event away from a shooting civil war in America -- and in fact if you ask Steve Scalise it may have already started.The political process is often fraught with severe language, money and hard-fought contests.  But in the end there are winners and losers; a person who loses by one vote still lost, while the person who wins by one vote still gets the office.  The margin is immaterial and, in the context of a Presidential Election, the popular vote doesn't matter; it is the electoral vote that counts and thus all candidates tailor...

    Americans keep dividing into two hostile camps. It seems the country is back to 1860 on the eve of the Civil War, rather than in 2018, during the greatest age of affluence, leisure and freedom in the history of civilization. The ancient historian Thucydides called the civil discord that tore apart the fifth-century B.C. Greek city-states “stasis.” He saw stasis as a bitter civil war between the revolutionary masses and the traditionalist middle and upper classes. Something like that ancient divide is now infecting every aspect of American life. Americans increasingly are either proud of past U.S. traditions, ongoing reform...

    An uneasiness has overtaken the body politic. There is a sense that a terrible clash is about to occur. The establishment’s contempt for Donald Trump, and their machinations to remove him, are validated by the president’s intemperate counterattacks and the glee that his supporters take in his barbs. These two groups do not simply disagree; they consider each other to be illegitimate and unconstitutional outlaws. It is true that Trump’s behavior is not befitting his office and that a certain decorum and dignity in the White House is not only desirable but essential. Democracy is no different from any other...

    Kevin McCullough from TownHall.com has penned one of the most insightful summaries of the total disregard for civil society now viciously pursued by the deranged, lunatic Left. In essence, McCullough accurately describes the Left’s painful descent into a lunatic mob of screamers and hate-mongers, and why they have abandoned any pretext of civility in their quest to utterly silence, destroy and even murder conservatives across America. As you read this, below, keep in mind that the Left has turned America into a battlefield — complete with threats to firebomb conservative targets in coordinated acts of domestic terrorism — and they...

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Federal officers in riot gear moved into the protest siege of ICE headquarters in Southwest Portland at 5:30 a.m. Thursday. "At approximately 5:30 a.m. today, federal law enforcement officers initiated a law enforcement action to reopen the federal facility at 4310 SW Macadam Avenue in Portland," Federal Protective Service spokesman Robert Sperling said in a prepared statement. Officers were clearing the entrance to the building but taking no action against a large number of protesters who have set up a camp along the building. The Occupy ICE PDX protest is in its second week. Thursday is the...

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see...
