High Noonan

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 9/6/2021 12:16:41 PM

In “Joe Biden displays his wisdom,” Paul Mirengoff draws on Peggy Noonan’s current Wall Street Journal column for its insight into the failings of President Biden. I thought it was a good Noonan column and true even if it was Noonan speaking, but late and therefore hurried. Noonan is in a rush to make it clear she sees what everybody else has seen over the past few weeks. Noonan doesn’t mention her support for Biden in her September 2020 Wall Street Journal column when the choice was between Biden and Trump. Conrad Black observed that Noonan had gone full metal-jacket for Biden. Black’s column has stood the test of time.

Perfect, #2. Krystol didn't catch it until Trump came along; Noonan got all weirded out shortly after 9/11. I thought about her while reading Shari Forst's story a few says ago: "Liberalism in the Rear View Mirror." Whereas Forst saw 9/11 for what it was - an attack on America by some very bad outsiders - Noonan (who once wrote speeches for Reagan) promptly started blaming W and Republicans in general for an apocalyptic event that was planned during the late nineties. Her mental collapse then accelerated when Trump arrived on the scene and it's as if his Presidency justified her psychosis.

Noonan is an elderly former WH speech writer who somehow thinks her opinions matter. They don’t. She has no influence or credibility but still writes editorials for Wall Street that are emotional nonsense. Why she is still employed by them is a mystery.

During Fox’s early days Noonan was a fixture. BillO’Riley, Hannityand Colmes, and all the rest. I paid attention to her at first because she was a speechwriter for my hero Reagan but soon decided she was a shallow-minded prima Donna. After 9/11 one of those shows had her on and she was so bombed with something, booze or drugs, she could barely hold her head up. Her conversation was slurred and garbled, her eyes were glassy, she was a roadside wreck. Since then I haven’t paid her any mind. She was stupid enough to expose herself on national television in that condition so I have no respect for ANY of her attitudes or opinions. And everyone is right, she picks the side that will get her the most approval and party invites from her social group. What a do-lally.

Rep. Thomas Suozzi (D-NY) said Tuesday he would not support the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill if Democrats would not increase the state and local tax (SALT) deduction, which primarily benefits wealthy Democrat states. “No SALT, no deal,” Suozzi, a House Ways and Means Committee member, said Tuesday. The committee, which writes tax policy, will have large sway over the crafting of the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill. “I’m pushing for full repeal,” he added. Republicans limited the SALT deduction to decrease most Americans’ taxes

According to data compiled by the Centers For Disease Control, approximately one in every 5,000 vaccinated Americans has tested positive for the coronavirus. That number is probably much lower in places with significantly fewer cases — like the Northeast, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco areas, where it is probably fewer than one in 10,000. This is the first detailed data about so-called “breakthrough” infections — positive tests from people fully vaccinated. The data suggests that politicians and public health officials are wildly overreacting to the delta variant’s effect on the already vaccinated.

Welp, that was a short marriage. Mere months after glowingly calling the new love of their life “a return to adulthood,” no-longer-swooning European leaders have kicked the inept “cheater” — beleaguered Joe Biden — to the curb, correctly labeling his haphazard, unilateral, disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, “cowardice,” “the greatest debacle that NATO has experienced since its foundation,” and worse. At the NATO summit in 2017, French President Emanuel Macron dug his fingertips into then-President Donald Trump’s hand, as reported by the BBC, staring him in the face. Macron would later say: “It wasn’t innocent. In my bilateral dialogues, I won’t let anything pass.”

Though delayed by Democratic quorum breaks, Texas has officially joined the slate of Republican states that have enacted new voting restrictions following the 2020 election. Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday signed into law Senate Bill 1, sweeping legislation that further tightens state election laws and constrains local control of elections by limiting counties’ ability to expand voting options. The governor’s signature ends months of legislative clashes and standoffs during which Democrats — propelled by concerns that the legislation raises new barriers for marginalized voters — forced Republicans into two extra legislative sessions.

Jean-Paul Belmondo, whose bad-boy presence in Jean-Luc Godard’s new wave masterpiece “Breathless” established him as the French idol of his generation, has died, Variety has confirmed. He was 88. For more than a decade following the release of “Breathless,” Belmondo reigned as one of France’s top box office stars. The actor was likened alternately to James Dean, Humphrey Bogart and Marlon Brando for his brooding, charismatic persona, and he proved able to work in virtually any genre. After “Breathless,” the cult that formed around him was dubbed le belmondisme by the French media. Unlike Dean, who was a rebel without a cause, Belmondo’s antihero persona was more existential

You can almost hear the wailing. If the media wants to keep up the COVID-19 panic porn, they will have to pick on a Democrat governor. Right now, Oregon Governor Kate Brown is seeing a significant surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in her state, just like Hawaii experienced concurrent with the red states in the Southeast. But if the media talks about Hawaii and Oregon, they have to point out that these states enforced some of the strictest restrictions and mask mandates, and cases surged anyway. That can’t happen. The corporate media prefers to portray Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as incompetent and generally fails spectacularly.
