Democrats Consider Becoming ‘More Ruthless’
After Losing Brett Kavanaugh Battle

Brietbart Big Government, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 10/10/2018 7:08:03 AM

After losing the war to defeat Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats are thinking about becoming even “more ruthless,” reports the far-left Politico. After launching at least a half-dozen debunked and outright phony allegations of criminal sexual deviancy against Kavanaugh, after accusing him of running a gang rape ring where women were drugged as a means to incapacitate them, after legitimizing the harassment of President Trump and Kavanaugh supporters up to and including chasing them out of public spaces, Democrats are thinking about becoming “more ruthless”? Other than violence, what is left?

The left would do well to remember that most of America has been stockpiling weapons and ammo since the Clinton administration. Whatever they start, we will finish.

Seeing the similarities and ´improvements´ (multiple accusers to show a pattern) between the Thomas and Kavanaugh accusations, when Amy Barrett is nominated to replace the dearly departed Death-warmed-over Ruthie (remember I said when) what are they going to accuse her of? This could be a good parlor game.

The Democrats are starting to realize that their long game gave those who love freedom time to mobilize and help others break conditioning, that at some point they are going to need to resort to violence to overthrow the government. They thought they could get the American people to vote their rights away little by little. They have run out of patience with that approach.

Also people like George Soros where his money is financing protests and Antifa. Then you have the nutcases in congress like Maxine Waters daring people to go face to face with innocent people. I can´t fathom how it could get any worse.

Conservatives who vote for conservatives will not be swayed by these tactics. Die-hard liberals will still vote for liberals. The so-called independents are at risk. The optics of hysterical women moaning and crying in the Capitol like they are possessed and clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court were not helpful. I would say that this is a losing strategy. Go for it.

The recruitment offices of the left were the classrooms of the fascist professors who have had years to indoctrinate young people. They took advantage of the opportunity and have created mindnumbed facsists who know nothing about this country. If we don’t get a handle on this strategy, it will only get much worse. Parents, you must be vigilant when choosing the college your child attends. Paying for this ungodly, unAmerican brainwashing is very dangerous because it produces orcs bent on death to this country. We see them everywhere on the news and they are not going to go away. They like the intimidation and bullying. Being egged on by people in power like HRC makes them feel invincible. Wrench power from them. Vote Red November 6th. Stop the madness.

They tried that once during the Trump campaign and it didn´t work out very well for them. Antifa and BLM said they were going to get violent and the Bikers for Trump showed up. The pajama boys stayed behind their barriers and kept their mouths shut.

An announcement of violence would be most welcome now. We would assume that the police could not handle it and we would have to call upon the 2nd Amendment or whatever means necessary to protect ourselves and it would be perfectly legal. We´re waiting but I don´t think they like their chances for survival.

Hillary is using the tactics of an undisciplined child denied a candy bar at a Walmart filled with customers. With sudden, furious screeching that her mom has seen before, the child effectively warns, "Give me that candy bar or I will throw the worst tantrum ever while you try to push a cart with $200 of groceries in the midst of dozens of customers and employees." As she has in the past, Mom does whatever is necessary to stop the screaming.

Smartphones, tablets and video games are physically changing the brains of adolescents, early results from an ongoing $300 million study funded by the National Institute of Health have shown, according to a report by “60 Minutes.” Scientists will follow more than 11,000 nine- to 10-year-olds for a decade to see how childhood experiences impact the brain and affect emotional development and mental health. The first bits of data suggest that the onslaught of tech screens has been transformative for young people -- and maybe not for the better.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

To pay her respects to President Bush in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, alongside President Trump, Mrs. Trump wore a Christian Dior black double-breasted cape with rounded shoulders. Once again wearing her favorite winter accessory, Mrs. Trump paired the cape with black leather Bottega Veneta gloves and suede boots by Christian Louboutin.

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77. This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation. And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations. A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed. But there were heated scenes in the House when politicians clashed over the plans. According to local reports, Economic Freedom

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” Switzerland’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted

The “State of American Patriotism Report,” which was designed to assess the patriotism and historical knowledge of young Americans, also revealed that six in 10 millennials (ages 22-37) believe the United States is racist and sexist.

Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday. The president argued that funding the wall was a “national emergency” and proposed $5 billion in funding.

In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
