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.

Amen.

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?
