Our American Civil War - An Upcoming Talk

We're in the middle of a civil war.

It may not be a shooting war. For the most part. (Though don't tell that to some Republicans at a charity game practice who were targeted by a Bernie Sanders supporter.) But it's a war all the same.

The war is still being fought with paper and protests. But it's based on irreconcilable differences between parts of the country. Much like the ones that brought on the war between brothers.

This is a topic that I've written about quite often over this past year. Rush Limbaugh saw fit to read and promote some of those pieces. And now I'll be giving a talk on the subject at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC. It'll take place from Jan 20-22. I'm scheduled to speak on the 21st, but there are plenty of other great speakers there.

Many of you know Anne-Marie Murrell, of Politichicks, who just doesn't give up. Tom Fitton, who heads Judicial Watch, an organization doing a great deal to expose the lingering corruption of the Obama years, the always great Kevin Jackson, a real patriot, Lt. Col. Buzz Patterson, Kathleen Willey, who came up against the horror of the Clintons firsthand, Admiral Lyons, whose spirit has to be seen live to be believed, the always funny Evan Sayet, Gordon Chang, with his vital analysis of the big game in the Pacific, Stephen Coughlin, who has been exposing our collaboration with the Jihad from the inside, and many others. And, of course, putting it all together is Joe Dugan.

The event will take place in the Crown Reef Beach Resort - 2913 South Ocean Boulevard - Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. To find out more information or register, click here.

I look forward to seeing you there.

And here's a brief except from one of my civil war articles that I will be discussing.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.
It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.   
It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over. 
It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become “patriotic”. 
There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them.

That's the war we're in.

The divisions aren't regional or geographical, but are in fact within families (for example we don't talk to my wife's family anymore because they're all unhinged leftists).

I believe if the divisions were geographical we'd have already crossed that line from "paper and protests" into actual shooting.

In fact I'd argue that the divisions are significantly deeper now than prior to the civil war (wherein the disagreements were over a couple details, not the very existence of objective reality).

We're headed toward interesting times. I'm kinda glad our side has most of the guns.

Rush is pretty good, at least since he has been reading your article, but Daniel is the sharpest tool in the shed :)

Darn it! I meant to add, we're slipping into Civil War, similar to the way Venezuela is in a Civil War, with no major battles of a conventional sense, and few shots fired, yet potentially as disastrous as they come.

All true, but the new Civil War goes well beyond the abuse and misuse of the three branches of our government. It is not merely the intention of the left to regain and retain power in governing the U.S., it is their intention to cede that power to a global cabal intent on diminishing the U.S. This is not merely a struggle between American liberalism and American conservatism, this is a death match between the self governing enshrined in our Constitution and authoritarianism. This is for the soul of the "American experiment".

In other words, winning is all that exists.

I live in Oregon and just can't travel that far alone. Was a Tea Party organizer in my city and would LOVE to be part of that gathering! Will be praying from here that it goes well and will be there in spirit!

Wish I could be there.

Civil war here now, global war here now and on the horizon.

Infidel said...

One thing I just realized about the left, is that they are so focused on destroying the existing power structure, that they can't see what the next power structure would look like.

I will not be able to make it to your speech but I hope you emphasize the point you made about the courts gaining so much power through the anti-discrimination movement. Once it was granted that "discrimination" was so evil that we had to turn over unlimited power to the judiciary to combat it. I havent seen anyone else point this out on the right Sultan.
