Hillary Clinton: ‘Civility Can Start Again’ When Democrats Take Congress

state-dept-clinton-emails clinton FBI probe Clinton Hillary Civility DemocratsHillary Clinton rejected calls for a return to civility in American politics during an interview on Tuesday, arguing instead that civility can only return once Democrats take back control of Congress.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Clinton, who frequently maligns President Trump and his fellow Republicans for disregarding the norms of civility in public discourse, went on to cite a number of high-profile public controversies that she believes display Republicans’ unscrupulous approach to politics.

“I remember what they did to me for 25 years — the falsehoods, the lies, which unfortunately people believe because the Republicans have put a lot of time, money, and effort in promoting them,” Clinton said. “So when you’re dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding, it’s — you can be civil, but you can’t overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections.”

Clinton announced on Monday a 13-stop North American speaking tour with her husband. The event, “An Evening with the Clintons,” offers attendees a “one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history.”

The tour is scheduled to begin on November 8, and tickets are being sold for as much as $288.44.

So when has Hillary been civil except in front if the media? It’s just your typical brown shirt tactics adopted by the left and ANTIFA!

Is Hillbilly talking about the republicans or the demon-crats? I think she is talking about the Demon-crats. That’s what she does blames the other side or person for the things she and the demon-crats are doing. The first accuser is usually the one that is believed, whether they are right or wrong.

The Clintons’ body count would rival the Mafia’s, beginning with Vince Foster’s “suicide” in a public park. A lot of people perished in plane and car crashes as well as “suicides” and “botched burglaries” on their watch. The last one was a young man in the Democrat organization who was about to talk to Wikileaks. Supposedly it was a robbery, but he was shot in the back and his expensive watch, etc. were not taken. Then there’s their constant lying, from White Water to, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Bengazi happened on Hillary’s watch. It was a complete set-up. There was no security for anyone at the Compound. While our Ambassador and others were being murdered, Hillary spent hours trying to decide if rescuers (who never came) should be dressed as military or civilians. Am I living in Argentina? Do they have so much dirt on everyone in politics that they can get away with anything? No one seems brave or strong enough to bring the Clintons to justice.

Anyone still taking an interest in whatever Hillary has to say, is as sick as she is!!!! How can anyone believe in her lies even at this late date? She is wanting to flex he muscles once again to agitate the conservatives at this mid term election and get the liberals to fall in line to vote the Democrats in so they can win back the House and Senate…don’t think that will happen as she would like to. The have done so much damage with their lies, deceit, fraudulent votes, stealing votes, and having deceased people still voting, that they no longer have any integrity, honesty, or decency left in them. They now resort to violence in any way they can and that makes them political bullies if not outright terrorists to America. I read articles about how she collaborated with our enemies in the Mid East while serving as SOS, and those were outright treasonous acts! So if she thinks level-headed Americans will listen to her, she can think again. She and her SOS dept. weaponized our enemies in the mid east with all sorts of fire arms, and those American weaponry were also used in the Benghazi attack against our own people there! She also funded the rebels in Libya using the seized assets of Ghadafi, as she wanted them to assassinate him. Talk about a crooked Sec. of State…WOW!!! Oh, Obama was also in on it and Penetta, I think. It’s funny how all these clandestine acts of treason are now coming out. That was also the reason why they ordered the military to”stand down” when the Benghazi attack was going on as their “excuse” was, they wouldn’t be able to get to the embassy in time. Didn’t the attack last for 13 hours? It was a “do or die” mission for Amb. Stevens sent there by Obama and Hillary, without permission from Congress, to “check” on some stinger missiles or something that they had given to the rebels, now used against the Americans at the embassy. And to hear Hillary’s famous last words when she testified on Capitol Hill: “At this point, what difference does it make?” The difference was, 4 Americans died after they had repeatedly asked for more security support well before the attack began.
So, why should anyone today want to hear what she has to say? i think she wants to incite violence on Nov 6th if the Democrats do not win the House and Senate. They want the women marchers to protest at all of the polling places…and who cares about them?? And I think they want Antifa to show their ugly faces or (hooded heads as they are nothing but cowards), to cause trouble.
I wouldn’t give her the time of day…she is just a waste of time!

These people need to “Grow UP”… STOP WHINING and CRYING, (wah, wah, wah). They LOST and they don’t have the maturity to accept it. Instead of regrouping to determine what they can offer BETTER than the republicans WITHOUT LIEING… (nothing). They have to resort to violence, threats, chaos, and inciting civil disobedience …they are all Socialists who want to destroy America as Founded. Here is a suggestion; MOVE TO A COMMUNIST COUNTRY. Then when you find out how terrible it is, you can come back to the USA and be MODEL CITIZENS giving thanks to God for America!
I have never seen not only such childish acts but evil, wicked people as well. If YOU vote for ANY DEMOCRAT, your PART OF THE PROBLEM of the Social decay we are experiencing. Remember how Obama was the one who incited and instigated hate speech between the police and the citizens we had for his entire presidency? There is none with Trump and other Nations now respect the USA because of Trump!
Democrats represent today a key reason why God has wiped out civilizations in the past. Seeing the damage they have wreaked upon our Constitution as well as Judge Brett Kavanaugh, (a means to an end to destroy America and turn it to Socialism/Communism) is it any wonder one of the ten commandments is “Thou Shall Not Lie”? These people are Evil, wicked, vile, and without morals or conscience who will stop at nothing to FORCE THEIR BELIEFS AND GODLESSNESS on the majority and enslave us by becoming our rulers!. They are incapable of “Live an LET LIVE” Just like Cain who was jealous of Ables offering CHOSE TO LISTEN TO SATAN who gave him the idea of murder, so Dems cannot stand to be around people who do have morals and values. Ultimately, there are only two powers that be which we all fall under. It is “by their Fruits that ye shall know them” …Good or evil, God or Satan, period. “Choose ye this day whom ye will serve” It is crystal clear who the Dems represent that need to be utterly abandoned.

When was she ever “civil” about anything? That woman is such a hypocrite and should be out of the public eye “and ear” altogether. Our country has lost civility because of people like her who want us to be a “third world country”.

More garbage from the Alinsky playbook from the commie Hag. Just search for the book “Rules for Radicals” and become enlightened. This book is the guiding tome for the left. None of it is pro-American nor pro-Constitutional.
The Hag, Shilliary, is a fervent acolyte in the religion of the tenets of the book. Along with all the dims/commies anywhere in this nation.

‘Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation’ by Ken Star

The man himself breaks his self-imposed silence on the topic of the Clinton’s.

We the people must (legally!, peacefully!) take BACK (because it’s ours to begin with!) the power from ALL who would oppress us!

Political party names aren’t what counts. What have OUR REPRESENTATIVES done that ensures our continued freedom from oppression?! Even oppression by those very same representatives? Test them! Every election is a pass/fail performance review. Reject pork barrel politics as the crack coccaine of politics that it is! Demand better! It’s our votes that win the day! It’s our holding the political ruling class accountable that makes them comply with the consent of the governed! http://www.congress.gov is a great tool for this.
“We must hang together or most assuredly we will…” get a government that has stopped WORKING FOR US.

So… “We’re not going to be civil until we’re in control of the Legislative Branch of the USA.”
Not the most _civil_ of aproaches.
Here we see an example of the lust for power & control. And the Democratic Party USA isn’t alone in that mad scramble for a political monoculture. ¡Y’ALL GOTTA LEARN TO WORK TOGETHER! For the good of our grandchildren and our one nation, indivisible. Now.

Civility only when the Democrats take over – I wonder where she has been the last several decades? Restraint has been a hallmark of Republican and other party responses. Now the GOP is duty bound to restrain from doing anything, and hope that their (Republican’s) civil rights are eventually respected again – most likely begrudgingly from liberals and those who claim the Democrat entitlement. Is it only because she can only see a lack of liberal response when SHE and her ilk win, in a matter of speaking. Who are causing just about all of the MOB (yes, I will use that word) mentality to try to BULLY our lawmakers AND their FAMILIES? And she expects these to settle down if, horrifyingly, the Democrats (read: Liberals) take over. No way; in history, the major revolutionaries or activists had to be “put away” – some countries were able to put them out to pasture; some, such as the USSR, executed them, or incarcerated them. Civility – like someone else here said – the pot calling the kettle black – she is one to talk, with all of the UNCivil things she has done to possible political rivals. I pray for those in government, for GOD to make a change for the better. Proverbs 3, v. 5 – 6

How did she get an article in AMAC? My only interest in her, her husband, obama, and the rest of the liberal high government circus are when the trials begin.

I guess this means that whenever the conservatives lose control they can become “hostile”. I am sure we wold be much more effective in our attacks if we did.

Democrats are trying to blackmail the American voters. Democrats are telling voters to elect them or suffer the consequences. In other words, voters must elect those who they disagree with politically to prevent civil unrest. What kind of a choice is that? Democrats are trying to give us a dictatorship before they even have power! Vote out all democrats! Democrats really are unhinged!

Civility and the Democrat/Communist party in the same sentence is a very large Oximoron.
And this coming from the chief Moron and instigator of the Resistance The DCNC is beginning
to resemble radical Islam “Do as I say or icut your head off” They are finally showing their true
colors and it is Communist Red. No Hillary go back into the woods and become a hermit.
