Have you ever had the opportunity to speak with or to a group of people that you know holds a different opinion or belief than you? I have and the key is to be well informed, don’t’ let them rattle you, stand your ground and defend your position. That’s exactly what Kimberley Strassel from the Wall Street Journal did this weekend with a panel of liberals on Meet the Press.
The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel is brilliant, and if you haven’t yet read her work, do yourself a favor and read some of it now. However, her writing is not why we’re talking about her today. No, today we’re talking about Strassel because she just went into the lion’s den and came back out carrying the lion’s head on a pike.
It all happened on Sunday’s episode of NBC’s Meet the Press when Strassel was asked to be the only conservative guest on a panel that would discuss the ongoing Russia-Trump collusion story (as if there was an actual story to speak of). Strassel was obviously the most well-prepared and the most knowledgable on the subject, but that didn’t mean that some silly liberal wasn’t going to try to take her down a peg or two. Fortunately, Strassel held her own and made the attacking liberal (MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid) look like the silly liberal, suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome” that Reid is.
The conversation was kicked off as the panel discussed a news item from this past week that claimed the President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, had attempted to establish a back channel of communication with the Russian government. The story has been proven ridiculous, on many fronts, but the liberal media continues to parrot the concerns of the Democrats as if they actually mattered and weren’t simply political propaganda repacked as national concern. Into this conversation steps Strassel with facts, truth, history, and logical thought… a combination that continues to frustrate the Democrat Party and their sycophantic media…
Strassel seemed to be the only one who knew the facts and was able to separate them from the many rumors, fake news and innuendos circulating on the Trump – Russia allegations. The only thing that I could recommend that she should have done was bring up all of the scandals surrounding Obama and Clinton and all of the many times Obama openly violated the Constitution and federal laws.
