Parting With Peggy Noonan and the Irrational Hatred of Trump

January 22 | Posted by mrossol | Noonan

I concur with Mr. Black. Peggy Noonan has disappointed me these last few years with and inability to reconcile what is distasteful about Donald Trump and what so many Americans see as hatred, double-standards, and Anti-American tendencies. I’m sort of waiting for her to call me a ‘deplorable’. mrossol The Epoch Times – January 18, 2021 Commentary, by Conrad Black It is... Read more

Maybe Only One Sane Person in Washington?

October 19 | Posted by mrossol | Big Govt, Democrat Party, Noonan, Ruling Class

WSJ 10/18/2020 by Peggy Noonan Everyone’s insane now. I mean everyone in Washington. The great challenge of the era is to maintain your intellectual poise under pressure. Washington this week looked like a vast system fail. Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, on CNN, let it be known she won’t countenance pushback. At issue was the stalled stimulus deal. Anchor Wolf Blitzer noted that... Read more

What Trump Might be doing Right – Letters

January 9 | Posted by mrossol | American Thought, Noonan, Republican(s), The Right, Trump

Some very good responses to Peggy Noonan’s editorial of 12/29/2018, where she tried to encourage “Trump insiders” to “speak up – on the record”. ======= Peggy Noonan asks “Trump insiders” to speak candidly about how the administration conducts the people’s business (“Trump Insiders, Come Out of the Shadows,” Declarations, Dec. 29). Two years are indeed enough time to evaluate the conduct of... Read more

Calling Alabama Women

November 19 | Posted by mrossol | American Thought, Noonan, Republican(s), Western Civilization

She always makes me think. ==== WSJ 11/18/2017 Peggy Noonan Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable. They don’t like when Northerners and liberals and people in Washington tell them who their senator should be. They don’t like when reporters from outside come down and ask questions and turn over rocks looking for what’s crawling... Read more
