Peggy Noonan Reminds
Us Why Trump Won

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 11/23/2019 5:22:12 AM

Three years after outsider Donald Trump blew up the political world with his implausible victory over the consummate insider, Hillary Clinton, many establishment Republicans still don’t get it. From their elite cocoon, they continue to indulge the hauteur that put off ordinary voters who had grown tired of a fossilized political class that serially ignored their interests, and seemed more concerned with their own insider perks and privilege, rather than in repairing the damage that decades of bipartisan progressive technocracy had inflicted on the Constitutional order. The grande dame of the disgruntled NeverTrump Republicans has been the Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan, whose columns on Trump

Peggy Noonan?....Ugh !! The existence of a real deep state has been established. The only thing to do now is to identify every person who was (and is) involved in the coup attempt be identified and prosecuted for their actions. Indicting some "low" lawyer in the FBI ain't going to cut it. From what has been revealed (leaked) so far it sounds like we are in for another cover up ending just like the Hillary case. The "investigators will determine that the real guilty ones just did some sloppy work and didn't follow a few regulations. Remember Comey going on national TV and laying out a perfect case against Hillary but refusing to prosecute? This is the big moment. If this country is going to survive the criminals must be indicted, tried, convicted and jailed for their actions.

Peggy has been spending too much time in the fog of Nevertrumpland. She has been tainted for quite a while and doesn’t know when to get off the stage, sorta like Obama. She puts too much stock in her own past reputation as a good writer. Go away.

Peggy Noonan is a member of a segment of the Republican Party which is all but non existent. That segment is now a part of the Democrat Party which has nowhere to find comradery.

Noonan is a hack. Always has been. She had a moment of overblown legitimacy as a "speechwriter" (I suspect Reagan was generous on that), and has been lamely playing that deck for over a generation. The WSJ frequently overreaches with their sponsorship/selection of Those Who Blab. Heaven knows she's one of those mistakes.

I'll bet you rubes who voted for Trump don't drink Tea with your pinky stuck out at the "proper" angle! Do you drink tea? Ha! You are such ill informed losers...all of you being lowly farmers and pig sloppers! (From Peggy's mind). I don't drink tea and certainly don't stick my little finger out...EVER... Peggy couldn't even afford a farm in Iowa at 14,000 dollars an acre for land and $400,000 for a tractor and $1,000,000 for a combine! And a farmer must know how to fix his own equipment so a few thousand dollars in tools is helpful! The rest of us low lives live in what we call cities... I know you NEW YORK dwellers laugh at towns like Minneapolis/St Paul and Des Moines, Iowa. But between these two tiny cities there are more tech jobs for high skill workers than NY! Guess a lot of businesses decided to locate here rather than "The Big Apple"? Couldn't be crime and taxes could it? Put some overalls and rubber knee high boots on Peggy and come walk among us little people. You might learn something! I guarantee you one thing...NOBODY poops on the streets of Mound, MN! EVER! Or go the theatre to some meaningless play on Broadway with your "friends"... Lonley Spinstress if you ask me!

The insanity of the never Trumpers is as bad as the anti-Trumpers. The never Trumper faction wakes up every day expecting President Trump to "act more Presidential", stop tweeting, let the Democrats and media abuse him without a response... These things will never happen, but they keep getting the same result - which demonstrates their insanity. We love this President for so many reasons but among the best are the fact that he fights back (hard) and that he says what he will do and does exactly that. Promises made and promises kept. Best President in my lifetime.

Bruce takes Noonan apart, piece by piece, and the abilities of many foreign relations "experts" along with her. In government as in business, credentials, a resume and Ivy League education does not make a competent performer. The clear thinking and skilled negotiations of Donald Trump stand out from the elites that used to control Washington and I look forward to another four years of common sense progress for America.

Peggy is the ruling class. I was amazed at how haughty the Dept. of State were. They did not come through on television as real Americans: one had an English accent, another a bow tie with three piece suit buttoned vest and an Ukrainian immigrant had the nerve of insisting on being addressed as Lieutenant Colonel by Mr. Nunes. Not one had spoken to President Trump. I will be glued to the television for the hearings for the replacement of the immortal RBG.

FTA: "After three years of Dem calumny and dirty tricks, can we blame the Republicans for forgoing the usual preemptive cringe and vigorously contesting the blatantly partisan attacks?" Republican Representatives did a great job in the impeachment hearing. Let's hope our Republican Senators will do just as well when their turn comes because I think everyone will be watching this one! The MSM might even put it on in prime time because of the ratings it will get.

Not a single one of those on the Schiff agenda could say that anything was actually said re: quid pro quo......it was only ASSUMED etc. I get the Journal and her column is the one I don't even bother with anymore.

Hong Kong elections: Tsunami
of disaffection washes over city
3 replies
Posted by MissMolly 11/25/2019 5:20:09 AM Post Reply
The anti-establishment reverberations from almost six months of street protests swept through polling stations across Hong Kong on Sunday, as voters in record numbers roundly rejected pro-Beijing candidates in favor of pan-democrats. The tsunami of disaffection among voters was clear across the board, as pan-democrats rode the wave to win big in poor and rich neighborhoods, in both protest-prone and non protest-afflicted districts and, in downtown areas as well as the suburbs. Less immediately obvious was whether there was a generational divide in the way the people voted, but ousted pro-establishment district councilors suggested that young, first-time voters had been instrumental in dislodging them from their perch.

What began as a good week for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ended in his indictment for corruption. It is the first time that a sitting Israeli PM has been indicted. Early in the week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that America would no longer agree to the 2016 UN Security Council resolution (No. 2334) that said the Israeli settlements in the West Bank area were a flagrant violation of international law. That determination was utter nonsense. With the exception of the Geneva Conventions on the law of war, “international law” — especially as the UN uses that term — is nothing but politics.

’ll take the opportunity up front to double down on this post from Friday. I’d bet my life savings plus several internal organs that Pelosi will have 218 to impeach. That’s based on the simple reality that failing to do so at this point would cost Democrats more politically than proceeding with impeachment would. Voters who hate Trump would be furious and voters who like Trump wouldn’t give Pelosi and Schiff an ounce of credit for standing down in the end. The president would gloat about it every day unto eternity. Pelosi, long respected by both sides for her ability to whip votes, would be humiliated utterly.

Every year as the end of November draws near, New York City prepares for its annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a holiday staple since 1924. For 2.5 miles and roughly three hours, colorful balloons, floats and performers dazzle crowds as they march through Manhattan, beginning at 77th Street and Central Park West and meandering through the city before ending at Macy’s landmark store in Herald Square. According to The Smart Shopper's 2016 report, the average total cost to hold the parade itself is $10.4 million to $12.3 million, with costumes alone coming to about $2 million and property taxes amounting to another $138,573.

Shrinking violets don’t become presidential contenders. Still, even at the highest level of overweening ambition, Elizabeth Warren stands out. She has clawed her way to the top by hook and by crook. One of her favorite techniques is the bald-faced lie. As an academic, she is best known for an article claiming that medical crises are largely responsible for personal bankruptcies. Warren’s article has been used (as she no doubt intended) to promote socialized medicine, but it has been thoroughly debunked. See Gail Heriot’s analysis in the Texas Review of Law & Politics, embedded below. Warren’s deeply flawed, if not outright deceptive, article on “medical” bankruptcies largely made her academic career.

Mr. Macron had also been the sole leader to veto the start of lengthy membership talks for North Macedonia to join the European Union, despite Skopje’s having done everything Brussels had asked of it, including changing the country’s name.

An earlier essay on today’s dueling accusations of government-sponsored opposition research described past examples of the practice, including how members of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force (WSPF) had assembled investigatory files on all potential GOP presidential candidates going into the 1976 election: John Connally, Gerald Ford, Nelson Rockefeller, Robert Dole, and even Ronald Reagan. I concluded by asking if such abuse of process stretched back even further. Today’s essay answers that question by citing a multitude of examples from the 1960s, each lovingly documented by FBI testimony before the Church Committee. Some background on the Church Committee is in order.

Impeachment Is Destroying Democrats 29 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 11/24/2019 4:15:42 AM Post Reply
The goal of the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other Democratic Party leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives has been to use the impeachment inquiry to destroy President Donald Trump. They hope to impeach him, followed by conviction and removal from the U.S. Senate. Otherwise, they believe he will be so politically damaged that he will resign before the next election. Ironically, the exact opposite political result is occurring. The past two weeks, the nation was subjected to partisan impeachment hearings orchestrated by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). The process has been unfair to not only House Republicans but also to the target of their investigation, President Trump.

Last Saturday, the NFL’s most controversial quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, participated in a workout to try to spark interest in his employment. So far, no NFL team has reached out to him about a potential job. Kaepernick has been unemployed for three years. He led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and did quite well as quarterback in 2013, but then his career started to wane. In 2016 he started kneeling during the national anthem as a protest of police brutality. His move angered fans but delighted political pundits who loved his anti-America message.
