And if you think that could ever mean anything less than real, true war, you’re dreaming.
The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now.
This is a fight to the finish.
Trump has been warned by congressional Democrats that if he in any way impedes the work of Mueller’s office, he risks impeachment.
Well, let’s find out.
If the House Judiciary Committee of incoming chairman Jerrold Nadler wishes to impeach Trump for forcing Mueller to fish or cut bait, Trump’s allies should broaden the debate to the real motivation here of the defeated establishment: It detests the man the American people chose to lead their country and thus wants to use its political and cultural power to effect his removal.
To a world watching with fascination this death struggle convulsing our capital, one wonders how attractive American democracy appears.
And just how much division can this democracy stand?
We know what the left thinks of Trump’s “base.”
Hillary Clinton told us. Half his supporters, she said, are a “basket of deplorables” who are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.” Lately, America’s populist right has been called fascist and neo-Nazi.
How can the left “unite” with people like that? Why should the left not try to drive such “racists” out of power by any means necessary?
This is the thinking that bred antifa.
As for those on the right — as they watch the left disparage the old heroes, tear down their monuments, purge Christianity from their public schools — they have come to conclude that their enemies are at root anti-Christian and anti-American.
How do we unify a nation where the opposing camps believe this?
More importantly: why would we even want to? If you’re willing to compromise with Leftists in order to enjoy what will certainly end up being a quite brief period of phony “unity” with such, then tell me: which of the Bill Of Rights are you willing to give up?
That haven’t already been taken from you, I mean.

Update! It’s war all right—cold at the moment, perhaps, but heating up quickly.
Moving away from the strictly sectarian, Tucker Carlson has his finger on the pulse of the left-wing speech stiflers of every persuasion who use tragedy as a justification for shutting down right-leaning opinion.
Accusing them of committing “moral blackmail,” Carlson argued the other week, “They want to take charge of what you want to say and think…until the range of free speech narrows until it resembles a CNN script.”
“This is how free speech dies,” Carlson said. A little over a week later, an Antifa mob tried to break down Carlson’s door while his wife locked herself in the pantry and called the police.
So Carlson knows what he’s talking about. And he’s right—free speech is in peril and may very well die. But only if conservatives give in to the leftist bullies instead of fighting them.
True enough. But does either Carlson or the author of this piece fully realize that “fighting” is almost certainly going to mean not merely debating or campaigning or voting, but actual, physical fighting?
Yet again, I’m reminded of good ol’ Malone:
Malone: [talking privately in a church] You said you wanted to get Capone. Do you really wanna get him? You see what I’m saying is, what are you prepared to do?
Ness: Anything within the law.
Malone: And *then* what are you prepared to do? If you open the can on these worms you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they’re not gonna give up the fight, until one of you is dead.
The Left has to date given no cause whatsoever to doubt their dedication to their cause, their absolute commitment to seeing the transformation of America into a socialist Hell through to completion. They are very close to achieving their objective and have no intention of giving up now, particularly after Black Tuesday’s gains. Malone’s statement, sobering though it is, is both wise and true. His stark question will have to be answered by each and every one of us, probably sooner than we would wish. You don’t have to like it. You DO have to live with it.
