Here’s Newt Gingrich on results vs. resistance:
We are living through a historic turning point in American history.
Many Americans want to keep building on the tremendous results we have seen since Republicans took control in Washington, while others, who are seeing their power and elite status wane, are bitterly fighting to resist, obstruct, and distort the Republicans’ success.
It is part of the same political-cultural civil war that I discussed in my New York Times best seller Trump’s America: The Truth About Our Nation’s Great Comeback.
You can see this fight over results versus resistance vividly in the assault Senate Democrats have executed to destroy Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has decades of exemplary service across the government. Many in the mainstream media are pretending that the Democratic attack was prompted by last minute, uncorroborated, 36-year-old allegations of sexual assault, but the offensive started much earlier – and quickly reached fever pitch.
The moment Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he would retire in June, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats said President Trump’s nominee to replace him should not be confirmed until after the midterm elections. They were trying to fabricate a false equivalence between Kennedy’s replacement and the Republican refusal to hold confirmation hearings for Judge Merrick Garland, President Obama’s final Supreme Court nominee, ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
Once Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump, Schumer, seeing his first effort was ineffective, simply made clear that he was going to “oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have.” So far, he’s kept his word.
Democrats – including some on the Senate Judiciary Committee – quickly banded together for a joint press conference to get out the message that they opposed Kavanaugh because they suspected he would not support left-wing policies. There, Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut told the victims of the school shooting that took place in Parkland, Florida, that “Judge Kavanaugh is your worst nightmare.”
At a press conference with Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, Senator Cory Booker said anyone who supported Kavanaugh’s confirmation was “complicit in the evil.”
