73% of Americans say U.S. Political Debate is Increasingly Uncivil

THE POLITICAL RHETORIC IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL …

As per s CBS News poll, an overwhelming number of Americans believe the political debate in America is becoming increasing uncivil. Well, maybe that is because it is. But then again, hasn’t it been uncivil for quite some time? However, since Donald Trump has become president, the LEFT has completely become unhinged and their so-called leaders have said some shameful and hateful things. Last week we were witness to a far-Left individual who volunteered on the Bernie Sanders campaign attempt a mass assassination of Republicans.  Sadly, Americans who are polled only seem to be creatures of the moment as reported at the Politico, a majority approve of Congress’ handling of shooting. Wake up America, talk is cheap. One week later, Democrats are back to their old ways. What is ironic is that 85% of Democrats polled said that the current tone if political debate is encouraging violence and yet it is that that are causing the violence.

Members of Congress are getting positive ratings for the way they responded to the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, last week. President Trump gets slightly lower — though still net positive — evaluations for his response to the attack, partly because Democrats are less likely to approve of his handling than of Congress’. Fifty-three percent of Americans approved of Congress’ response, and 29 percent disapproved, while 46 percent approved of President Trump’s response, and 36 percent disapproved.

And while Congress and many observers called for a more civil tone to political debate in the wake of the events, Americans of all political leanings overwhelmingly say that the tone and level of civility in our political debates has been getting worse in recent years.

These views are largely the same across ideologies, too, as about two-thirds of liberals, conservatives and even more moderates feel things have gotten worse.

Seriously America, take a good hard look to who is promoting and causing the violence.

Sen. Franken (D-MN) Backtracks & Cancels Event with Toxic Comedian Kathy Griffin After Henious Trump Photo Controversy

THE LEFT BUCKLES TO THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE … FRANKEN TOSSES GRIFFIN TO THE CURB.

It would appear that Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is all talk, as he has flip-flopped and canceled even with disgraced uber-Left comedian Kathy Griffin. The big-mouthed Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California after she was fired by CNN for her disgraceful and vile photo shoot with a beheaded, bloody mask of President Donald Trump. It would appear the out-of-touch Democrat senator got an earful from his Minnesota constituents. Actions have consequences and Griffin is about to get a life lesson in that what goes around comes around.

Can you imagine that individuals actually find the below picture offensive?

Sen. Al Franken has reversed himself and decided “it would be best” for Kathy Griffin not to attend an event that the Minnesota senator had scheduled with the comedian for July.

The Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California, even after publicly distancing himself from an image showing Griffin with a faux beheaded President Donald Trump.

But Franken said on Thursday evening that he’d changed his mind regarding the event promoting his new book, “Giant of the Senate.”

“I believe what Kathy Griffin did was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse. I consider her a friend and I’m glad she realized she crossed the line and apologized,” Franken said.

He added, “After hearing from many Minnesotans who were rightfully offended, I’ve come to the conclusion that it would be best for her not to participate in the event we had previously scheduled. I understand why Minnesotans were upset by this, and I take that very seriously.”

Believe it or not, we can see that Kathy Griffin was hardly sorry in were crocodile tear apology. As per The Daily Caller, Griffin is holding a press conference to whine about the “bullying from the Trump family that she has endured.” WOW, she was bullied? Actions have consequences and you can say adios to your career.

All she did was behead the President of the United States in effigy and make his youngest son cry, and now everybody’s being mean to her. She’s standing up for herself. (Plus, she’s finally getting the attention she’s craved her whole life, and she’s not giving it up without a fight.)

But beyond this “bullying” she’s suffering, and the professional consequences of her decision — she’s been dropped by a company that facilitates defecation, but enough about CNN — I think what’s really tormenting her right now is the shaming by her peers. When even Keith Olbermann thinks you’ve gone too far

Susan Rice Runs to MSNBC for Cover … “I Leaked Nothing To Nobody’ About Intelligence” (VIDEO)

WHAT A JOKE … MSNBC WOULD NOT EVEN COVER THIS STORY UNTIL SUSAN RICE RAN TO THE LIBERAL NETWORK FOR COVER …

Who honestly believes that there was nothing political about what former Obama National Security adviser did with regards to the unmasking of Donald Trump team members? Please, don’t insult our intelligence, But of course the uber-lib network MSNBC was all too quick to run cover for the Obama administration.

Hmm, she had no problem acting in a political manner when it came to Benghazi. There was nothing truthful about what Rice did then and you can make the same statement as to her actions today. She has been proved to be a political hack … leopards don’t change their spots.

Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chucky Schumer Says It’s Unlikely Gorsuch Will Reach 60 Votes

MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, DEMOCRATS WILL RUE THE DAY IF THAT ACT IN A PARTISAN MANNER IN VOTING FOR SUPREME COURT NOMINEE GORSUCH …

Democrat Minority leader Schumer said yesterday on Meet the Press that Democrats and Republicans should come up with a mainstream nominee instead of President Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Sorry Chucky, you don’t get to dictate anything or make the rules. You are in the minority. In the famous words of former president Barack Obama when speaking to the GOP leadership after he won the presidency … elections have consequences.

As the Senate gears up to consider President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer predicted Sunday that “it looks like Gorsuch will not reach the 60-vote margin” needed to overcome a filibuster.

If the 60 votes aren’t there, Schumer argued during an appearance on “Meet The Press,” Trump should gather with Senate Democrats and Republicans to “try to come up with a mainstream nominee.”

“Look, when a nominee doesn’t get 60 votes, you shouldn’t change the rules, you should change the nominee,” said Schumer, D-New York.

Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell said that Neil Gorsuch would be elected to the SCOTUS in one way or the other. McConnell put forth the qualifications of Gorsuch and battled the liberal MSM who argued the Democrat side.
