  • The Democratic Party Is Working To Destroy The American Way Of Life

    The Federalist ^ | 01 NOV 2018 | Rachel Stoltzfoos
    Hillary Clinton is right. We cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what America stands for. She’s right that we must fight against politicians and activists who degrade the rule of law, seek to delegitimize our elections, spread corruption, attack truth and reason, and try to undermine our national unity. A defiant, defensive, and dystopian political party must be met with determined aggression, not niceties. But she’s living in upside-down world if she believes that’s the Republican Party. Two years into Donald Trump’s presidency, there is no question the Democratic Party is on the side of...
  • MSNBC's Schmidt: Limbaugh, Levin have 'blood on their hands' for crimes of 'crazy people'

    MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt says conservative radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin have “blood on their hands” for mass shootings and other crimes perpetrated by “crazy people.” The Republican strategist told “All In” host Chris Hayes this week that a recent mail bomb threat to prominent Democrats, along with the Tree of Life synagogue massacre that claimed 11 lives, were partially incited by well-known conservative men and ideologically aligned organizations. “Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and NewsBusters, and Judicial Watch, and all the rest of them, have blood on their hands for the incitements that they...

    One time, I met a D.C. traffic-directing cop in the line at the mall and I remarked how dangerous her job was. “I mean, people in D.C. drive so crazy,” I said. “You could get killed.” “Oh no,” she said, “don’t feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for the people in parking enforcement. They get screamed at, spat on, cursed out – you name it. It’s horrible.” I have to admit that this was the first time I’d ever had any sympathy for parking enforcement cops (also known as “meter maids”). I’ve always seen them as predators, scrounging around, looking...

    President Trump said one day after explosive devices were sent to prominent Democrats and CNN that "a big part" of the anger in society today is caused by "purposely false and inaccurate reporting" from mainstream media. He said in an early morning tweet on Thursday that "fake news" has gotten "so bad and hateful that it is beyond description." "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!" he wrote. Trump's also said at a campaign rally late Wednesday that the news media should set a "civil" tone. CNN anchor John Berman responded to Trump after reading his tweet on "New...

    The University of Mississippi has condemned a tweet by a faculty member that called on activists to abandon civility and harass Republican senators in public. “Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all,” James Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology, tweeted from his @Insurgent_Prof account on Oct. 6, the day Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court. “Put your whole damn fingers in their salads,” he wrote. “Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out. They don’t deserve your civility.”

    Gov. Cuomo did his best Uncle Sam impression on Sunday, preaching his love for the “red, white, and blue,” and sounding off against Washington partisanship — while still stumping for a Democrat-controlled Congress “that can stop this president.” “To govern, to live together, it can’t be red or blue. It can’t be conservative or liberal. You have to bring everyone together,” said Cuomo in an appearance on John Catsimatidis’s AM 970 radio show. “I think, frankly, that’s the point the president misses time and time again. He plays to the polarization.”

    Andrew Cuomo has some nerve.The New York governor, who two years ago intoned that New Yorkers with pro-life and conservative values weren't "welcome" in the state, is suddenly acting as if he's their most ardent advocate.  At Thursday night's Fox Business debate, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) defined New York values as "socially liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage,  and focus around money and the media." Cuomo insisted Cruz should "apologize" for his comments. "I'm always open to give him an education on what New York values are all about," Cuomo said on NY1. "And if he had any class, he would apologize to the people of New...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo believes that pro-life activists, along with anti-gay activists and supporters of the Second Amendment, are not welcome in his state. During a radio interview on Friday, Cuomo pointed out that Republicans were in the midst of a schism, where conservatives worked against moderate Republicans. "Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves," he said. "Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are and they're the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made news last week when during a radio interview he said “extreme conservatives” have “no place” in the Empire State. Who are these people? Among others, he said, those who are “right to life” or “anti-gay.”Later he tried to walk back this naked and nasty bit of intolerance, reassuring us that those who are “anti-choice” (one presumes he got a tongue-lashing from NARAL for saying “right to life” the first time) could stay in New York after all. But that bell, as the saying goes, can’t be un-rung.Catholics, of course, are “right to life”...

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo came under fire for criticizing pro-life and pro-Second Amendment citizens of his state -- and saying "that is not who New Yorkers are." Their problem is not me and democrats, their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives, who are right to life, pro assault weapon, anti-gay, is that who they are? Because if that is who they are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York. Because that is not who New Yorkers are.

    Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York has already proven himself to be one of the most pro-abortion politicians in the country. He’s repeatedly pushed a bill that would make the state that has some of the highest abortion rates in the nation further down the road of unlimited abortions.Now, Cuomo has said that pro-life people have no business living in the state. If the governor has any interest in pursuing national office with a potential Democratic presidential campaign, he’s definitely lost the majority of the country that appreciates the right to life of unborn babies.But maybe Cuomo is doing the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's incendiary suggestion this week that liberals "cannot be civil" with Republicans any longer is unproductive and simply "ridiculous," a top Democratic senator said Wednesday. The stark repudiation of Clinton's comments by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., a vulnerable red-state Democrat seeking re-election this year, comes as top Republicans have lined up in recent days to criticize Democrats' fiery rhetoric amid the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    Think of Michelle Obama turning over a new leaf as a failing Obama simply now ‘Sending out the Mooch’ If Michelle Obama is, as some media describe it, “spanking” her husband’s former Attorney General Eric Holder and his embittered protégé Hillary Clinton for claiming it’s high time to throw civility out the window, then she must be doing it with a feather. There is no doubt about where Holder and Clinton are coming from. It was on Sunday at a campaign event in Georgia when Holder said that Democrats need a new slogan, suggesting: “When they go low, we kick...

    Vote for Democrats this time and you will get more mob rule, one-way streets, dictatorial throw back, danger from our enemies since they want to destroy ICE and open our borders and take higher taxes. All but a remote few of Democrats in any kind of leadership have been calling for mob rule and violence. Now Hillary is declaring that civility must die. She declares that when people running against you will take away everything you hold dear you can’t be civil at all. As a cherry on the cake for all horrified listeners, she offered civility again after the...

    This summer, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters called on her supporters to harass cabinet officials. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that you “cannot be civil” with members of the Republican Party. And Wednesday, videotape was released of former Attorney General Eric Holder telling a Democratic audience at a campaign rally on Sunday that they should “kick” Republicans when they perceive them as “going low.” Despite the continued reports of politically motivated threats or violence, Democratic Party leaders have worked to keep this anger burning and incite even more harassment and violence. Beginning with my own near-death experience...

    Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “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 Republicans seem to recognize and respect is...
