A Week for Patience

Two of the hardest things to do are to hold your tongue and be patient.

This is especially true in today’s world. Everything is instantaneous. News is belched out continually. We expect results immediately and we expect politicians to react faster than a pop tart’s toasting.

Last week saw examples of this par excellence: The Kavanaugh hearing delays and the Russia dossier/Rod Rosenstein/New York Times blabbing.

Conservatives wanted a vote on Kavanaugh and many faulted Sen. Chuck Grassley for his giving Dr. Ford enough rope via delays to hang herself. I expect Kavanaugh to be confirmed shortly, after three more of Ford’s “witnesses” deny a party event even took place. Her credibility has shrunk every day.

You’d think the Dems would understand that there will be bad blowback for them. They don’t. Blowback from voters who see an individual – like themselves – besmirched in a kangaroo court. But for the long range picture, they don’t even see the blowback from a Justice Kavanaugh to them either.

“Anonymous” commenting at Don Surber put it well:

Don’t the Democrats realize the principle of not antagonizing the waitress who can spit in your food? What better preparation for this soon-to-be Supreme Court justice than to have a first-hand experience of the dark underbelly of Communist/Marxist ‘progressivism’– the discard of the rule of law when it suits them (presumption of innocence, due process, etc.), the divisive poison of ‘identity politics’, Democratic Senators deliberately taking him out of context to misrepresent him (Kamala Harris), etc. Kavanaugh seems too fair and honest to spitefully spit in their food like a disgruntled waitress, but he will surely now be bringing to all his future deliberations on the Court, a keener understanding of the ‘progressive’ threat to American freedom and democracy.


More from Don Surber, who on Twitter found “Michael Doran, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute via the the Bush 43 administration, offered an interesting take. He sees infighting erupting within the Deep State.

Did you notice? Something beautiful happened this week. The NYT published a story, sourced to Camp McCabe, which targeted Rosenstein. Then the WashPost responded w/a story, sourced to Camp Rosenstein, exonerating him. What are the dueling articles are all about? =>

.@LeeSmithDC explained it last night in @IngrahamAngle. Trump’s decision to declassify the FISA application, etc. has set Camp McCabe and Camp Rosenstein at each other’s throats. Thru the haze and smoke of this fight we get a clearer picture of Rosenstein’s double game. =>

He helped Trump fire Comey but then ran to Team McCabe & pretended to be on their side: re-approving their rancid FISA application, & helping them get Mueller up and running. Rosenstein did not pick a side & did not follow the law. He bounced around like a pinball. =>

The article in the NYT was Team McCabe telling Rosenstein: Don’t you dare let Trump declassify those documents. If you let us go down, we’ll take you down with us. Rosenstein was actually doing his damnedest to slow roll Trump and keep the truth from getting out. =>

But neither McCabe nor Rosenstein has many plays left. The Mueller probe was their shield but it’s out of gas. All initiative is now in the hands of Trump, who, I predict, will get those docs (or most of them) declassified soon, in time to impact the elections. =>

And so what is the beautiful thing that happened this week? For the first time, the two leading liberal papers were publishing massive leaks from admin officials and former admin officials who were fighting with each other—all of whom have been working against Trump. =>

In other words, the anti-Trump coalition has, at long last, fractured. It took a helluva a lot longer than I ever expected, but it has happened. The war is not over yet. Not by a long shot. But from now on, Trump holds the advantage.”

Not bad strategy from a supposedly boorish, loud-mouth, crude, vulgarian real estate developer from Queens, eh?

NRA Shoots Down Phil’s ‘A’ Rating

Via The Daily Caller:

Phil Bredesen, the Democratic candidate to replace departing Senator Bob Corker in the Tennessee Senate race, is using an outdated rating from the National Rifle Association in a recent campaign advertisement — and the NRA is having none of it.

“As governor, I had an A-rating from the NRA,” Bredesen says in the ad geared toward Tennessee gun owners that touts his “real independence.”

NRA Political Victory Fund chairman Chris Cox was quick to point out Bredesen’s current rating.

“Phil Bredesen is a ‘D’ rated candidate, and he will not protect our constitutional rights in Washington, D.C.,” Cox said in a statement, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “Tennesseans should not be fooled by his false and misleading campaign ads.”

Cox also fired back at Bredesen via Twitter:

“It’s not 2002, you’re not governor and you’re not A-rated by the NRA,” Cox tweeted. “It’s 2018, you have earned a D rating for turning your back on self-defense and supporting the Hillary/Schumer/Bloomberg gun control agenda. @VoteMarsha is a 2A champion. You’re not.”

Tennessee’s Republican Party accused the Democratic Senate candidate of “talking out of both sides of his mouth.”

“Phony Phil is caught talking out of both sides of his mouth once again, and the NRA is right to call out Bredesen for his false claims,” Tennessee Republican Party chairman Scott Golden told the Beacon. “Gun owners and all Tennesseans who care about our Second Amendment freedoms recognize that Marsha Blackburn is the only one in this race who will stand up to the national Democrats’ radical anti-gun agenda.”

The NRA has instead chosen to support Bredesen’s opponent, Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

“Bredesen will vote against Tennessee values in Washington,” Cox said on Wednesday. “He will kowtow to the gun control elitists and support Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s anti-freedom agenda. His new ad is a shameful attempt to fool the voters in his home state, and NRA members won’t be fooled.”

Insider Tweets About FBI

Yesterday’s bombshell report that Rod Rosenstein discussed wearing a wire around Trump and that they might invoke the 25th amendment, has a lot to digest in it.

It’s evident that the chaos that exists is in the DOJ and FBI.
There was an interesting set of comments from former Fox reporter Adam Housley on Twitter concerning the FBI. Here’s what he wrote and the time frame:

When I broke the FBI story I said it wasn’t political it was about power and while there has always been a power issue at the Bureau, it had gotten significantly worse. Agents were being punished for standing up. I also said months ago if McCabe was fired he’d take others.
9:17 PM – Sep 21, 2018

Many agents…damn good men and women serving in the Bureau and some who were forced to leave or retired in time…are watching how this plays out. Grab the bag of popcorn. Oh and B….wherever you are…I was right…you shoulda listened.
9:20 PM – Sep 21, 2018

I can report this all now. There were about 18 people that we know of so far. A clique. They were the ones meeting and I’m told Wray didn’t know about the meetings. One was the right before McCabe testified. Republican or Democrat didn’t matter it was all about power
9:27 PM – Sep 21, 2018

I’m told Wray confronted Congressman while defending McCabe…it got heated. When the info was finally presented to him he left abruptly and then confronted McCabe at the Bureau…that didn’t go well.
9:29 PM – Sep 21, 2018

That’s the question. I’m told Comey liked being the face and let McCabe run the show. It sure how much Comey knew, but agents had issues in 2012 and 2013 RT @jray_redfever: @adamhousley Wray didn’t know…. but did Comey ?
9:41 PM – Sep 21, 2018

I know a bunch of agents and former agents. This was internal and about power.
9:43 PM – Sep 21, 2018

It was all about the club. Were you in it…or not.
9:50 PM – Sep 21, 2018
Im told Wray supported McCabe strongly and was even defiant at the meeting on the Hill. Then when he saw and heard the info he had no choice and wasn’t happy with those who told him and also McCabe.
9:52 PM – Sep 21, 2018
Many agents haven’t spoken about their concerns because Republican leaders have offered no protection, Dems think it’ll help the Pres and Wray they aren’t sure about
9:55 PM – Sep 21, 2018
An agent who stood up to this clique 2012/13 timeframe “I have been told by numerous people to watch my back. It was an uneasy feeling in DC. Did what I had to do but had to look over my shoulder the entire time. I took taxis when I normally would walk. I felt very exposed.”
10:04 PM – Sep 21, 2018

In no way am I saying Wray is or was a bad guy. Don’t know that. Do know the interaction when he found out about McCabe and the agents feel for him. Many like him…but they have to know they’ll be protected.
10:07 PM – Sep 21, 2018

The massive amount of agents are doing essential work every day. RT @tracygirl58: @adamhousley I hope the rank and file of the FBI realizes that most of mainstream America still respects their work and does not think they are corrupt.
10:08 PM – Sep 21, 2018
People know way more than I’ve heard. My info comes from the Bureau. They’re talking now. RT @sandiegodavo: @adamhousley Be safe, Adam.. People have died for less recently. Be careful.

A ton of agents were hoping David Bowdich would move up and eventually take over. Heard his name over and over as “the rank and file think he could be the guy to get us back on track”. Problem is…uncertainty over FBI leadership and direction. Is he independent of it?

Kavanaugh Vindication Coming?

As posted previously, the calm demeanor of the administration and Senate Republicans over the Kavanaugh accuser suggests they have something up their sleeves.

Senator Charles Grassley, head of the Judiciary Committee, has been bending over backwards to accommodate Dr. Ford and everyone has been eager – too eager? – to hear her side of the story. Why?

Yesterday I came across this tweet. Ed Whelan is President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a conservative think tank, and used to be an official in the United States Department of Justice. He also writes for National Review.

Ed Whelan @EdWhelanEPPC

By one week from today, I expect that Judge Kavanaugh will have been clearly vindicated on this matter. Specifically, I expect that compelling evidence will show his categorical denial to be truthful. There will be no cloud over him.
5:37 PM – Sep 18, 2018

He added:

Senator Feinstein will soon be apologizing to Judge Kavanaugh.

Ed Whelan Retweeted Robert Costa:

Funny how attorney didn’t seek an investigation two months ago. A week from now, I doubt that any fairminded person will think that any further investigation is necessary–at least not concerning any alleged wrongdoing by Kavanaugh.


Ed Whelan @EdWhelanEPPC

A horrific incident similar to the one the accuser alleges may well have occurred. But if so, she’s got the wrong guy. Kavanaugh wasn’t present, as this and much more will confirm.https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/18/politics/pj-smyth-brett-kavanaugh/index.html …
7:26 AM – Sep 19, 2018

And from Kathleen Parker: “Could there have been another, Kavanaugh-ish-looking teen at the house that night, who might have attacked Ford?”

Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, also said:


Level of confidence of Kavanaugh supporters at the moment—VERY HIGH
10:03 AM – Sep 19, 2018

Following this story has been a wade through stupidity. How can a case be made against someone when the alleged incident took place 36 years ago – the accuser thinks; she’s not sure of the year – and she doesn’t remember the time or place? There is no there there.

It proves how stupid the Democrats and the media think the American public is. Unfortunately for them, we’re not.

The Trump Prophecies

In the summer of 2016 I came across a story about a man who adamantly believed that Donald J. Trump would be president.

It wasn’t a widely held opinion at that time, nor was it an opinion. He believed it because he revealed that he had been told this by God.

There are people all the time who claim that God has spoken to them on a variety of topics. However, this man seemed different to me and a lot of others.

He recounted how he was watching television in 2011 and Donald Trump came on the screen. He really didn’t know much about Trump, but a voice said to him, “You are hearing the voice of a president.”

That man was Mark Taylor and he has written a book recounting his story called “The Trump Prophecies.

I came upon the book after finding out there is a movie about his story and it will be shown in Memphis October 2 and 4 at the Paradiso. The 200 page book is a quick and interesting read.

If you are not a religious person, you will be inclined to dismiss his account as a nutcase’s ramblings. If you are a believer, you will understand the fight that is raging between good and evil in our country right now and how God would want to intervene.

If you are not a religious person, you will wonder why such an insignificant person as a former firefighter from Florida would be chosen as the one to receive His messages. But you might be forgetting that God often chooses unlikely people (like Trump) to do his will. Certainly St. Peter wouldn’t have fit the profile of the perfect evangelizer or apostle; nor would David have been chosen to lead Israel. In this regard, I have no problem with believing an average American was told prophecies.

Although Trump did not run in 2012, as Taylor had thought, he recounts that God told him to wait for the time when there would be a Triple Crown winner as a sign. Taylor was told that as with Triple Crown winner Secretariat, “There’s another one coming, a horse, a great champion, that I have created, greater than the champions before him, for the champions before him were great, but this one will be greater…For this horse shall be a sign to my Church for the time they are in. He will also represent my Church in the spiritual realm. They will run and not get tired; they will see and do things they have never done or seen before, for this generation will be great champions for my Kingdom.”

To the skeptical, a horse race as a sign might seem silly, but what is an election but a race where political thoroughbreds are up against one another?
American Pharaoh did go on to win the Triple Crown in 2015, finishing faster in the final quarter dash than record holder Secretariat.
Taylor notes that the race was run on June 6, D-Day, a significant battle in World War II. Ten days later Trump announced he was running for president. The name American Pharaoh also can be considered a reference to Trump and his leadership. The name Donald John Trump, according to his research, means “World Leader under the grace of God whose leadership will excel, surpass and outdo in Triumph.”

Taylor has many other interesting things to recount. Some refer to the Justice system, which Taylor sees as being almost overwhelmed by evil. He recounts how he felt in a vision a “demonic and very powerful entity” in the court room. It will be a big fight to overcome the evil, but he believes Trump will appoint 5 Supreme Court Justices who will enable this.

As we see events playing out in the Kavanaugh case, his words are validated. Taylor wrote the book a year ago in 2017.

Similarly, the corruption revealed in the Russian dossier, again which happened before most of the book was written, validates him because this is an issue God discussed. God indicated he would “completely transform the justice system” and rid our institutions of corrupt men.

His co-author, Mary Colbert, takes a section of the book to describe how she met Taylor and her own experiences with him and his prophecies. One result was a massive prayer group via telephone that connected to pray daily before the election. On election day, they asked people to blow the shofar, a ram’s-horn trumpet used by ancient Jews in religious ceremonies and as a battle signal.

Something worked, as we all know and produced a political miracle.

I enjoyed the book and it leaves you with a feeling of liberation and joy. The liberation comes from knowing that, according to Taylor, that God is in charge and has promised the United States will have a joyous future with the best yet to come.

If you consider that the Triple Crown presaged a victory in the presidential election, it is promising to consider that this year we had a Triple Crown winner, too, in Justify. Take into account that name as well. The midterm elections may turn out to be another victory for us.

Again, this book will appeal to people with a certain belief system. Others will not credit it. It’s up to the reader to decide. It is $15.95 at Amazon, so you can judge for yourself.

What Does Trump Know?

I’m struck with how calmly and fairly President Trump has been to the accuser of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

So has Sean Hannity, which is a deviation from his usual full out attack mode. Hannity is tight with the President, too; he would have inside knowledge and follow what the administration wants.

This attitude suggests to me that President Trump knows something about the whole affair. He must know that the accuser is going to crash and burn when – or if – she appears before the Senate. Kavanaugh must have something up his sleeve as well. He was at the White House for a long visit yesterday. I imagine they planned their strategy.

Here are two comments I found that sum up the situation:


She does not remember the date.
She does not remember the location.
She does not remember how she got there or got home again.
She does not know the names of anyone else at the party.
She never told anyone about it at school.
Her only “witness” says it never happened.
Her recollection of the event disagrees with notes taken by her shrink.
Her students describe her as “crazy”.
They also describe her as an angry SJW.
She thinks Trump voters are worse than “deplorable”.
She shopped her story to WaPo before going to Feinstein.
Then clamed she wanted anonymity.
That’s a lot of stink.

And another that hints at the strategy:

We should be thankful for DiFi and Schumer.. they´ve chosen a strategy they cannot win at.

1) It won´t work
2) It forces red state dem senators to choose party over their constituents 2 months before the election
3) It makes us (and many Americans) very angry
4) Even if they succeed in delaying until after the election with a dem senate majority McConnell would have a vote before January.

They´ve painted themselves in a corner. They cannot win.

I concur.

Another sure thing is that Amy Coney Barrett, a runner up in this last Supreme Court justice search, has a pretty good chance of getting the next nod.

The Dems would not be able to draw from their popular sex abuse #MeToo playbook with a woman.

Flake Should Look in the Mirror

For those of us old enough to remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings, this attempt to smear Brett Kavanaugh is disgustingly familiar.

The Dems have opened their playbook to repeat the Anita Hill pubic hair on the coke can sexual harassment skit that almost torpedoed Thomas. This time it’s worse; the accuser pathetically goes back to his teen years for her story about potential rape. What’s next? Kindergarten capers?

We expect this nonsense from Democrats, but what the hell is “Republican” Senator Jeff Flake doing by joining in?

It smells like spite. Flake hates Trump and apparently would enjoy ruining a man to get his revenge.

When Flake ran for the Senate in 2012 we were told he was a reliable conservative by no less than self appointed expert in all things conservative Glenn Beck. One of the reasons was because Flake is a Mormon. Not just a Mormon, but a devout one and a family man, according to accounts.

But when you point fingers at someone like Flake is doing, more of them are pointing back at you.

It appears this family man’s son, Tanner, liked to post homophobic, anti Semitic and racists tweets. According to the New York Daily News, he has said:

“To the f—-t who stole my dirt bike from the church parking lot, I will find you, and I will beat the crap out of you,” the boy, whose Twitter handle is @tflakey, wrote on March 20, 2013.

“I’m down to own some f—-ts,” he wrote a tweet directed at another Twitter user.

His tweets also included an anti-Semitic message directed at an undisclosed Twitter user.

“Say something hilarious, and I guarantee that … will say it louder and get all the credit. Jew,” he tweeted in February.

Ariz. Sen. Jeff Flake said in a statement of his son’s postings: “This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, I’ve already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well.”

In a series of Facebook postings, riddled with “f—-t” and “n—-r,” the boy also bragged about his famous dad.

He boasted that he could talk to his father about a “crappy bill” his Facebook friend was protesting.

BuzzFeed also reported that the teenager used the screen name “n1—rkiller” in Fun Run, a gaming app on which he was active.

But, as they say, that’s not all.

Another son, Austin, and his wife were charged with animal cruelty in the deaths of 21 dogs in a Phoenix area kennel.

The two were in charge of it while the owners, the wife’s parents, were vacationing. The charges against them were later dropped, but apparently there was some degree of inattention that led the dogs to suffer heat exhaustion and suffocate.

So much for family values. Tell that to the people owning the beloved pets.

Flake himself has not lived up to his promise to his Arizona constituents to be a reliable conservative in the Senate. Isn’t that immoral? Why should he now be in charge of assessing all things honest and upright?

If there is justice, this trumped up charges against Kavanaugh will be dismissed and he will be confirmed.

At least all this discord is showing us who is honest and just in our government.
