A Second Civil War?

This time the fight is for the soul of American against the socialist agenda. From The American Thinker:
In an excellent article by Jeff Lukens here on American Thinker, he asks the question, “Is a second civil war coming?”  In reply, I say that America’s second civil war has already begun.  Its opening shots were fired by Barack Obama when he stated, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Most of this country is center-right and never considered America a place that needed transformation.  Most people can think of things they would change but few believe the nation needs to be torn down and rebuilt.  Obama failed but the left soldiers on in its quest for a new America remade in their own image.
When Obama went on his world apology tour, he wasn’t apologizing for America, he was apologizing for Americans.  This is the essence of this second civil war.  Leftists are demi-gods who believe they are America and that anyone who does not believe in them cannot lay legitimate claim to this country as their own.
Yes, this war has begun.  The opening skirmish was the Obama presidency itself, which history will see as a failure, despite what the media want us to believe in the here and now.  Sure, he passed ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank, overregulated, and ruled by executive diktat to great media acclaim.  Yet, ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank have been whittled away by legislation and judicial rulings, while Trump has prioritized deregulation and reversed many of Obama’s illegal executive orders.
The war’s second battle was the 2016 presidential election when Hillary Clinton, Obama’s chosen successor, lost to a television personality whom very few took seriously as a candidate.  Trump won despite the Obama administration conspiring with the Clinton campaign to steal the election and has remained as president even as that conspiracy fundamentally transformed into a failed coup attempt to depose him.
Trump’s presidency has been the third battle and with his string of successes, the battle is being won.  This, despite near-universal acrimony and condemnation among the media, the Democrats, and the left. (Read more.)

From Politichicks:
 Bias leads us to make mistakes. But the media wasn’t making a mistake when it loudly broadcast false claims with plenty of red flags about Trump supporters wearing red hats. Just as the media wasn’t making a mistake when it spread fake news about attacks on Muslim women by Trump supporters after the election. This wasn’t an error due to prejudice, but an active effort to reinforce tribal prejudices.
The Covington Catholic story in particular was not newsworthy by any rational definition of the term. The media insisted on making it news because it perfectly encapsulated the tribal prejudices of its base of urban and suburban lefties by pitting anti-abortion kids in MAGA hats against saintly minorities.
There’s another example of tribal hatred masquerading as news in the news now. Prime Time Sports, a small sports memorabilia store in a Colorado Springs mall, announced that it was going out of business. Malls are emptying out across the country and there was no reason why the closing of a mall shop selling Cubs t-shirts and Patriots mini-helmets should have ended up in hundreds of papers around the country. But the reason why its closing ended up in major papers and news networks, including CNN. says a great deal about the malicious nature of political tribalism on the Left.
“A Colorado store that boycotted Nike after its Kaepernick ad will close,” the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette gloated about the misfortune of a mall store 1,400 miles away. “He stopped selling Nike products because of Colin Kaepernick,” the Washington Post breathlessly reported. “Now his store is closing.” (Read more.)

From The New York Post:
 As polls tighten and self-described socialist Bernie Sanders looks more like a serious contender than a novelty candidate for president, the liberal media elite have suddenly stopped calling him socialist. He’s now cleaned up as a “progressive” or “pragmatist.” But he’s not even a socialist. He’s a communist. Mainstreaming Sanders requires whitewashing his radical pro-communist past. It won’t be easy to do. If Sanders were vying for a Cabinet post, he’d never pass an FBI background check. There’d be too many subversive red flags popping up in his file. He was a communist collaborator during the height of the Cold War. (Read more.)
Here’s a simple question: why aren’t we hearing massive outcries from the Democrat Party against the slaughter of people in Venezuela? The simple answer is because there are no coincidences with socialism. No matter who or where, it is all the same: wealth redistribution, nationalizing economic production (government control), expanding a welfare nanny-state of dependency, social justice equality, and secular humanism. It starts and ends the same, and we have yet another historical example in present-day Venezuela.Yet we have the avowed socialist Bernie Sanders finding it difficult to condemn Maduro, yet people are donating money to Bernie Sanders to become president . . . candidates for our “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition. We have the little Marxist princess, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claiming she is “da Boss.” We have Rep. Ilhan Omar accusing the United States of supporting an illegal coup in Venezuela.

The mainstream media such as the Washington Post and the New York Times along with the alphabet Cable news channels love to trumpet their righteous indignation toward President Trump as a liar when the entire Mueller Investigation into Russian Collusion was based on a lie along with numerous articles in the above mentioned newspapers and their affiliates across the Country.
