Smart folks like Brian Cates (who I frequently quote here) do not suffer fools. In fact, they quickly lose patience with folks who aren’t at the same level of comprehension regarding what’s happening in our country, the causes, the players, the strategies, etc. etc.

It’s why he is short and often insulting to those who question what seem to him to be patently obvious.

He did it again just now. I get it. Many of us sometimes get exasperated with folks who are just “waking up,” tagging along (sometimes) far behind, and so I am reminded of an expression my late radio show producer/friend Dave “Thirdwavedave” Logan, an astute observer of human behavior who would say when I wasn’t understanding something eminently evident to him: “Do you need me to pull over until you catch up?”

I try to remember that when I’m ahead of many others who don’t have the leisure time or inclination as I do to spend hours each day reading and researching and listening to and writing about the output of those who ARE ahead of the curve in understanding what’s being done to take back our country.

If I have ever appeared to be rude or impatient to you, dear patriots, I apologize. And promise to do better.

Meanwhile, here’s what has prompted me to write about this:

Cates posted:

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

Now that I have been totally exonerated on the Mueller Witch Hunt with a charge of No Collusion, I have often wondered, if a fake investigation is illegally started based on information provided and paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, shouldn’t they be held accountable? Not to mention, wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars and interfering with years of a presidential administration? I fought the made-up Hoax strongly and effectively, and I won.

Then they fabricated, out of thin air, the fake allegation that I obstructed justice, and I won that too. Think of it, how can you obstruct justice when you were fighting a false and illegally submitted narrative?

This week I have been totally exonerated by the Inspector General in the clearing of Lafayette Park, despite earlier reports that it was done for political purposes.

And I have also been totally exonerated in Congress by the testimony of former White House lawyer Don McGahn. It came, it went, and it was a big “nothingburger.”

But fear not, the Radical Left, country destroying, illegal Witch Hunts continue, and I will win those too!

Cates followed up with this comment and meme: “Trump’s pointing right at Durham again.”

Cates’ post elicited several comments, some expressing doubt about the existence of the elusive Durham. Very quickly Cates ripped off a reply:

I see stupid people once again wondering if Durham is real. Like, a real person. Too funny.

That garnered a few readers’ observation that if one doesn’t agree with Cates, he insults them, to wit:

“Trump was being sarcastic when he asked if Durham was a real person. . Idiots took the statement seriously.  And trolls playing dumb only pretend they do.”

“The fact people were seriously asking if the public had been tricked by Donald Trump and Bill Barr into believing a prosecutor named John Durham existed when he didn’t is going to look unbelievably stupid when we look back on this time.”

Do you think the put-downs hurt Cates’ credibility? Or do you think that what he reports is credible, but his crusty attitude is a turn-off?

Would you continue to follow him, taking his research, opinions, and observations at face value, and ignore his seeming impatience and inability to allow his readers to “catch up” while he pulls over and explains?

No one likes being belittled, especially for asking a genuine question. We can all recall being put down for asking one.

Here’s the thread:

Trump’s pointing right at Durham again.

Have you ever seen Durham?

Liberty Freedom, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:38:45 AM]:

Exactly.  We get the same one or two stock photos of this guy going on years now.  Seems like an updated sighting would occur from time to time.  The whole things seems like a farce.

Patriot Politics Research, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:39:07 AM]:

Rare footage of Durham on a lunch break.

Johnny Portman, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:39:46 AM]:

Nudging him or letting us know we need to push?

MJ Yung, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:39:49 AM]:

Special prosecutors know what they will encounter from the media. He is in deep cover.

Liberty Freedom, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:43:05 AM]:


Liberty Freedom, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:43:43 AM]:

The deepest cover.  So deep he can’t come up to do his job.

Patriot Politics Research, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:44:17 AM]:

I’m only joking cause he’s out of sight.

Durham is 💯% real.  Read about his CIA torture tapes investigation.

Patriot Politics Research, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:45:38 AM]:

@BrianCates  feel free to block special people like this person.

JoyfulGirl, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:45:56 AM]:

You think Durham is going to show the enemy his cards?  Unreal, yeah lets just sabotage the entire investigation.  Patience is hard, i know.

Liberty Freedom, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:45:57 AM]:

It doesn’t matter if he is or isn’t.  That debate would definitely be a side show.  So far..real or not real Durham has done zero for the current task.  Some still think he’s secretly working away.

Patriot Politics Research, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:48:34 AM]:

Real investigations have 0 leaks.

Adam, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:49:56 AM]:

Durham’s my hero just for staying so low profile in today’s world. Still, I wouldn’t say no to him ruining that particular aspect of his reputation.

Edwin, [Jun 10, 2021 at 10:53:26 AM]:

Agreed! Inflation skyrocketing, border a complete mess, the government is being run by a bunch of county hating, low IQ idiots, but hay, let’s all trust somebody we’ve never seen.
