    Democrat on Campaign Trail Calls 2018 Midterms 'Civil War 2'

    Democrat on Campaign Trail Calls 2018 Midterms 'Civil War 2'
    YouTube screenshot of Laura Oatman declaring "Civil War 2."


    A former Democratic candidate in California described the 2018 midterm elections as "Civil War 2" in remarks she gave while campaigning. In fact, she called them that three times. Given the uptick in harassment and incivility the last few months, this seems particularly dangerous — and telling.
    "For the next three months, our lives are going to be devoted, devoted and dedicated, to making sure that everybody we know and everybody we don’t know, gets out to vote," Laura Oatman, a Democrat who dropped out of the primary to support Harley Rouda, declared at a campaign event for Rouda. "This is Civil War 2, guys. Civil War 2."
    Oatman repeated it a third time. "So, Civil War 2. We’re not using bullets, we’re using our votes," the former candidate declared. "The battlefield is in November and November is coming!"
    America Rising captured the moment on video.
    In the heat of the family separation scandal last month, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) told liberals to harass Trump administration officials outside of work.



    "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, at a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere," Waters urged. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton described this as "the very definition of mob violence."
    Women in the Trump administration like White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen have been accosted at restaurants and at home.
    When a shooter targeted the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, liberals rushed to blame President Donald Trump before any motive had been discerned. Waters received a death threat. Trump supporters yelled at CNN's Jim Acosta to "go home" from a political rally.
    Is this the country we want to become? Trump Derangement Syndrome is plunging America into a tragic incivility, and the Democrats twisting the Bible against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and liberals blaming conservatives for the "culture wars" are only making it worse.

    Americans need to rediscover civility, the art of disagreeing on political issues but getting along on the major things. Unfortunately, liberal "progressive" ideologies insist on "deconstructing" alleged inherent biases in America's system of free markets and limited government. Defenders of the American dream are branded "racists," "sexists," homophobes," and worse because they uphold the Western tradition and American values.
    Just as the liberals pushed action from the Supreme Court, encouraging it to read new "rights" into the Constitution, so they attempt to redefine America into oblivion, upholding the "oppressed" minorities as proof that the entire system is corrupt.

    What would the intelligence community's 'insurance policy' against Trump look like?

    Let’s begin in the realm of the fanciful.

    Assume, for the sake of argument, that powerful, connected people in the intelligence community and in politics worried that a wildcard Trump presidency, unlike another Clinton or Bush, might expose a decade-plus of questionable practices. Disrupt long-established money channels. Reveal secret machinations that could arguably land some people in prison.

    What exactly might an “insurance policy” against Donald Trump look like?
    He would have to be marginalized at every turn. Strategies would encompass politics, the courts, opposition research and the media. He’d have to become mired in lawsuits, distracted by allegations, riddled with calls for impeachment, hounded by investigations. His election must be portrayed as the illegitimate result of a criminal or un-American conspiracy.
    To accomplish this, bad actors in the intel community could step up use of surveillance tools as a weapon to look for dirt on Trump before his inauguration. They could rely on dubious political opposition research to secretly argue for wiretaps, plant one or more spies in the Trump campaign, then leak to the press a mix of true and false stories to create a sense of chaos.
    Once Trump is in office, a good insurance policy would call for neutralizing the advisers seen as most threatening, including his attorney general. The reigning FBI director could privately send the implicit message that as long as Trump minds his own business, he won’t be named as a target. When the president asks the FBI director to lift the cloud and tell the public their president isn’t under investigation, the FBI director could demur and allow a storm of innuendo to build. Idle chatter benefits the plot. There would be rampant media leaks, both true and false, but none of them would benefit Trump.
    All would be well unless the president removes the FBI director. Then, a rider on the insurance policy would kick in. After months of assuring Trump he’s not under investigation, he must now become a focus to keep him away from the Justice Department and the FBI; once an investigation opens, all of Trump’s attempts to affect policy or to dig into allegations against the intelligence community could be portrayed as obstruction of justice.
    How to open an investigation after all these months? Appoint a special counsel. (Easy to get the right one, with Trump’s attorney general out of the way.) How to get public and congressional support for a special counsel? Through a partnership between the fired FBI director and the media; he could secretly leak to The New York Times anti-Trump versions of memos he wrote, inventing the pretext for a special counsel probe. The chosen special counsel should be an insider with his own legacy to protect. Anti-Trump FBI officials who secretly vowed to “stop” Trump could be assigned to the investigation.
    As crazy as it all sounds, it becomes slightly more plausible when we examine the record and find self-described conspiracies to develop “insurance policies.”
    On Aug. 15, 2016, after FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok and his FBI girlfriend Lisa Page met with Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Strzok texted Page that they couldn’t take the risk of Trump getting elected without having “an insurance policy” in place.
    Another figure, Benjamin Wittes, chose the same phrase. In October 2016, in his Lawfare blog, Wittes wrote: “What if Trump wins? We need an insurance policy against the unthinkable: Donald Trump’s actually winning the Presidency.”
    As it happens, Wittes has acknowledged being a good friend of fired FBI Director James Comey. It’s not hard to imagine that the two men share some beliefs, and even discussed some of the issues involved. In fact, Wittes spoke to a New York Times reporter about Comey's interactions with President Trump, right after Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel.



    So, in his 2016 blog post, Wittes wrote that his vision of an “insurance policy” against Trump would rely on a “Coalition of All Democratic Forces” to challenge and obstruct Trump, using the courts as a “tool” and Congress as “a partner or tool.” He even mentioned impeachment — two weeks before Trump was elected.
    If this far-fetched idea of an insurance policy were actually true, it also could include tactics memorialized in a memo, written in 2009 by a Democratic strategist working at the time for the liberal smear group Media Matters. It described how to fight a “well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass” targets. Private eyes would probe into their personal lives, courts would be used for lawsuits. “Massive demonstrations” would be organized, Michael Moore would make a negative documentary and “a team of trackers” would stake out targets at events. “Opposition research” would be collected. The targets would be attacked on social media, yard signs posted in their neighborhoods, and a “mole” placed inside their organization.
    If there really were an insurance policy against Trump, it might include having ex-intel officials getting hired at national news outlets where they’d monitor and influence news organizations, and be invited to give daily spin on controversies surrounding their own actions. Figures such as former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Comey aide Josh Campbell and others could get hired by CNN; former CIA Director John Brennan and ex-Mueller/Comey aide Chuck Rosenberg could get hired by NBC and MSNBC.
    But all that would never really happen. Or if it did, it’s downright silly to think of it as part of an organized insurance policy.

    NASA Package with Handwritten Note to Trump Causes Alarm in New Jersey

    Pixabay 10 Aug 201815 An NJPD officer was dispatched to a solar panel field to investigate a mysterious package believed to be from NASA just before noon on Tuesday.

    The package was attached to a parachute and making a hissing sound. Attached to it was a note reading: “NASA Atmospheric Research Instrument. NOT A BOMB! If this lands near the President, we at NASA wish him a great round of golf.” It was retrieved just 29 miles away from the Bedminster golf club in which President Donald Trump has been staying.
    NASA told WNBC-TV that the package was the end result of one of several balloons launched to measure ozone in the atmosphere and that the note was simply a “misguided attempt to be lighthearted” by one of their summer students. He has since been removed from the project.
    According to the official police statement, “the weather researchers were apologetic for any concerns they had raised by the hand written note on the device.” No charges have been filed.
