Camille Paglia: ‘Hillary wants
Trump to win again’

Spectator US, by Staff (Interview)

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/5/2018 10:54:02 AM

You’ve been a sharp political prognosticator over the years. So can I start by asking for a prediction. What will happen in 2020 in America? Will Hillary Clinton run again? If the economy continues strong, Trump will be reelected. The Democrats (my party) have been in chaos since the 2016 election and have no coherent message except Trump hatred.(Snip)I had high hopes for Kamala Harris, but she missed a huge opportunity to play a moderating, statesmanlike role and has already imprinted an image of herself as a ruthless inquisitor that will make it hard for her to pull

Comments:
This “interview" is in Q&A form. The Spectator sent Paglia questions and she responded. Some of her views will make you crazy, but Paglia is always worth a read.

Has Trump governed erratically?

Yes, that’s a fair description.

Yet she offers no example.

For a woman who complains about our present culture and champions change you would think she would recognize the value of Trump´s unusual leadership style and acknowledge that he has, in fact, governed very effectively.

But then, it was just a stupid set-up question to begin with.

FTA-Democrats must hammer out their own image and agenda and stop self-destructively insulting half the electorate by treating Trump like Satan.

She is always very pragmactic and speaks much truth. I miss her views on politics. I found her answers very good and very true. She always spares no one, but she really goes after the liberals in her answers if you ask me.

She mentions all the Democrat losers and then proposes two nobodies who could run. Why does this woman persist in being a Democrat? Can´t she admit that we have a president who actually gets things done and done quickly. Methinks she just likes to hear herself talk.

This is a must read, she is very perceptive, as usual. I just don´t understand how someone so intelligent can be a Bernie-voting socialist? Socialist politicians who are intelligent know better, but they want power and for them the end justifies the means. And then there are idiots like Occasional Cortex who might actually believe that claptrap. But neither explains Camille.

I differ in many ways with Camille Paglia, but she puts things very clearly and I find some of her points interesting.

This article is well worth the read.

To encourage you to read the article, here is the last paragraph:

We’re back to the hypocrisy sweepstakes, where gestures of virtue are as formalized as kabuki. Humor has been assassinated. An off word at work or school will get you booted to the gallows. This is the graveyard of liberalism, whose once noble ideals have turned spectral and vampiric.

Although most people today would call me a paleoconservative, I think of myself as a classical liberal (in the old, Jeffersonian sense). That last sentence really gets to me.

Even as an atheist, Camille Paglia contends that, "every educated person should be conversant with the sacred texts, rituals, and symbol systems of the great world religions — Hinduism, Buddhism, Judeo-Christianity, and Islam — and that true global understanding is impossible without such knowledge".

Our young consistently display their hunger for moral guidance. Liberal parents have ceased teaching the tenets of religions. Imho, CP´s contention is a good one. Not only "true global understanding" could result but personal understanding and the formation of good personal values could come about, also.

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – A special tribute to fallen officers is on display at the Boone County Sheriff’s Office. They installed a Christmas tree with 137 blue ornaments to represent the 137 officers killed in the line of duty this year, including Boone County’s own Deputy Jacob Pickett. “It means a lot to all of us – we were all very close. He was a wonderful officer, and it’s our way of honoring him and the other 136 officers that have been killed this year,” said Mike Gideon, Boone County Senior Dispatch Officer.

Before she blocked me on Twitter, I frequently read the posts of Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, as well as tweets from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Everytown for Gun Safety, which is the chief financial backer of Watts’ organization. Combined, the two gun control groups stand front and center in America’s anti-gun cult, with 4 million members, which is about on par with the membership of the National Rifle Association. It’s alarming how frequently Watts manipulates data to craft a narrative that America is held hostage to

Fired former FBI director James Comey is at it again. Last week, Comey testified before members of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. In a single appearance, Comey, on 245 separate occasions, while under oath, stonewalled questions with “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember” or “I don’t recall,” according to a congressional interrogator, Rep. Jim Jordan. (R-Ohio). If any private citizen tried Comey’s gambit with federal IRS auditors or FBI investigators, he would likely be indicted for perjury or obstruction.

The subheadline in the Daily Mail said it all, "A tearful Cohen pushed back at President Trump for calling him ´weak.´" What a dork. He was Donald John Trump´s private attorney for many years, but when the heat was on for Cohen´s non-Trump activities, Cohen sold the president out for a plea bargain. And Bungling Bob Mueller failed to keep his end of deal. The judge gave Cohen a three-year sentence.

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting.
