Thank You, Peggy Noonan

 

I had just wandered through a generally so-so observation about patrician and plebeian elements in our present political situation. I was not sure that I had made my points clear enough for the normal pleb to grasp fully (we are generally too preoccupied with life’s minor distractions such as rent, food, and selecting the right brand of beer).

But one can always count on their betters to provide. So Peggy Noonan was kind enough to write a Wall Street Journal piece that explains it much better than I. She, of course, is an established member of the GOP Order of Patricians and her concern was about the unwashed plebs generally known as Trump voters. Hope among her fellow elitists was that more and more of this group would abandon the notion of the former president seeking the office again in 2024, that support for him would fade and he would pass from the public’s eye. As it is turning out, that simply isn’t happening. In fact, it appears to some that their numbers might even be growing.

This is so despite the continuous dumping on the former president. Or maybe even because of it. The latest anti-Trump production is turning into a huge disappointment. It actually seems to have the opposite effect intended. Interest in the show trial sometimes called the J6 hearings has been weak and far below what was hoped for. In fact, it is probably having the opposite effect. Only the most gullible or pre-disposed believe in them and for the rest they are far too transparent. For most, they leave the distinct impression of Star Chamber episodes intended not to learn anything but to influence an election by removing a leading candidate. Plebs must be protected from their limited intellects by narrowing their choices to only acceptable options.

In any case, Trump is actually increasing in support from this sideshow. So a fresh approach in pleb management has shown its face recently. That is to agree that the plebs do have some real concerns and that maybe the down and dirty Trump demeanor helped to create attention for them. But now he has served his purpose and it is time for candidates with smoother edges to carry the banner. For the moment, they are even willing to accept some candidates who might be a little “Trumpy” themselves as long as they are not the original. For the moment, that is.

But in the end, the real call will be for “reasonable” candidates who can hopefully worm their way into those “purple” vote without really confronting the matters that will change us as a nation and having to win a thoughtful and passionate argument for Liberty. You know, the kind of candidates who made Trump possible in 2016, the kind who knows in his (or hers, or …..) heart that something can be worked out to get us by if the patricians were left to bargain among themselves.

Noonan knows enough to begin every con job with a compliment, sort of. She is impressed that every Trump voter does love America even if it is “not always been a fully thought-through love but it’s generally fully felt”. She even concedes that this is “admirable”, even if the thought process was so incomplete. So plebeian. If it got any more simple-minded, it would be on my level.

A little deeper into the piece one is able to get a clearer picture of the patrician view of those millions upon millions of the GOP base who are so regularly called on by the party elites but rarely listened to. She tries to reinforce the Dem contention that Trump was told by all reasonable and sane people that the 2020 election was fair and square but he chose to listen instead to a collection of “kooks, crooks and freaks” which was not hard to find since “Trumpworld has more than most”.

Her appeal to wayward plebs is to drop Trump or lose the shining chance to dominate in the coming elections. Everything is so very bad that just about any Republican will surely win. Any except, of course, Trump. “Only Trump” would lose.

But the truth is as soon as Trump can be eliminated, the patricians will begin to try and thin out any of the other non-conformists with plebeian tendencies. Before the discussion is over they will hope to be back to the old standard GOP patrician because they could win “in the middle”. You know, that legendary middle where gun rights can be narrowed, where new entitlements have been created, where “comprehensive” immigration reform lives, where government dollars represent educational concern, where … Oh, hell my simple mind and stubby fingers are over-loaded … You can fill in the rest.

What is so desperately needed is a clear, objective American agenda for all, with disregard for who you are speaking to. The principles of the Founding and the principles which build successful lives will reach all levels of society.

The great swath of middle America that I have spoken of very much feels the loss of our Constitution even if the patricians don’t. The party elites have yet to realize that MAGA is not a Trump thing. It is a grassroots American plebeian thing. Trump simply put a slogan behind it and then did his best to implement it.

The Peggy Noonans still talk and act as if this was about a loose-mouthed billionaire and not the saving of the republic as founded. But they do sense the shift away from them and that is what they hate, what they fight against. If Trump is at the head of the column or not is hardly the central question. The real question is the uncompromising direction of the column.

We might be in a dangerous position with our future but more and more I believe that the people who will make the long-term difference have finally realized that the damage done to us by the “warriors” on their side, it is not near the problem as the damage done by the cowards and blinded on ours. Hopefully, Noonan will save her condescension for her own kind.

By the way, if any of you fellow plebs actually want to read the Noonan column you will find it behind a paywall. Unless you have the devious computer skills to bypass “the wall”, you will have to take my word for the content of the piece. Otherwise, you can join me in some simple plebeian pleasure as I take off these smelly socks, let the air hit these more than smelly feet, pour three, possibly four fingers in a cup, and soak up the quiet of an evening that has finally begun to cool.

    I heard an observation by former GOP Representative Denver Riggleman who was a staff member for the January 6th Committee.

    Elections are won on the margins. The target audience of the January 6th Committee is not hard-core supporters of President or hard-core woke Democrats. The target audience is that 3-5% of the electorate who decides elections. If 3-5% of the electorate flips from supporting Trump to never again supporting Trump, then, as a practical matter, Trump will either not be nominated, or if he is nominated, will lose in a general election.

    By sheer dint of repetition, Trump has created a fog (a) that the election may have been stolen, (b) that he had nothing to do with the rioters, or (c) that the rioters were engaged in ordinary public discourse. The January 6th Committee hearings have irrevocably altered that reality for some 3-5% of the electorate who voted for Trump last time, but now will not vote for him again.

    In November 1972, Nixon carried 49 states, beating McGovern 61-38%. In August 1974 Nixon resigned. The Watergate hearings had a huge impact on the electorate, with a drip-drip-drip effect.

     

    Apart from this BS, I would be interested to hear your take on what Alan Dershowitz and Mark Levin had to say about your beloved committee. Honestly, I doubt you have the constitutional chops to take them on but it still would’ve been interesting.

    It was on at 7 pm my time and I missed it. I’ll try to find it repeated on or on his site. Considering the way it was put together, I’m sure there are a number of well-reasoned due process arguments.

    I’ll try to find it too. I would love to hear it.

    We all know they are using their political power to target a citizen, an opponent they hope to knock out of the race. You don’t get it, do you? We see this as a corrupt activity, an abuse of power that has crossed the red line a party dare not cross. It is useful for us, though. We are seeing the pundits and politicians we need to shun. Your comments only harm the cause you think you are supporting.

    And you’re still claiming that the 1/6 “Committee” is of equal status?

    Shameful. Especially for a “lawyer.” But then again, [standard response the mods have said to stop using].

    I believe that Trump is an existential danger to the Republic and the Republican Party. Both Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger blew up their careers to protect the Republic and the Republican Party. Good for them; they are patriots. So am I.

    ***   DEMOCRAT HELLSCAPE NEWS™  *** 

     

    Former Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has launched the group “Our Nation’s Future” with support from Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) with the goal of helping one million green card-holders gain naturalized American citizenship within the next four years.

     

    Such a goal would ensure that about a million foreign-born residents are likely added to U.S. voter rolls in key swing states, both Gutierrez and Durbin seemingly acknowledged. Gutierrez, specifically, called the plan “transformative” for upcoming elections.

     

    Research and the establishment media have consistently admitted that the larger a region’s foreign-born population, the more likely that region is to vote for Democrats over Republicans.

     

    Already, the U.S. has the most generous immigration system in the world — expected to bring in 15 million new foreign-born voters by 2042. About eight million of those voters will have arrived entirely due to the process known as “chain migration” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S.

    Lloyd Bentsen Scoop Jackson, And Daniel Patrick Moynihan Are Dead And They Are Never Coming Back™

    I don’t think that donating so much money to Evan McMullin that you get a phone call is a really good idea right now. Endorsing a patently obvious show trial to help Democrats isn’t very smart either.

    No.  

    I want to live in a Red, non-woke state, just not one which is part of the Trump Cult of Personality.  

    Georgia is a good example, where Brian Kemp was renominated by 50 points, and where Brad Raffensperger was renominated without a runoff.  Last night, two Republicans for Congress were nominated over Trump backed challengers.

    Florida’s DeSantis would be another example.  Fiercely non-woke, but transcending the Trump baggage and conspiracy world view.  DeSantis does not trash Trump; he ignores Trump as DeSantis moves forward confidently.

    Let the wokesters declare their pronouns, and mark themselves with such nonsense.  I want to live in a state which does not invest in such a pronoun fetish, or the Trump Endorsement fetish.

    DeSantis-Kemp 2024 would be fine by me, and wholly consistent with Ronald Reagan who sought how include others to build consistent with our nation’s 1776 founding.

    Just for the record, I rarely have a big opinion about what French says. It seems like he makes a lot of people mad and he has trouble defending his point of view, but what do I know.

    I can help with that:

    I’m trying to let this rest, particularly from some of the latest comments from Trump Hate Central, but look at this:

     

     

    You can’t enable Democrats in anyway. They don’t care about civics, and they don’t care about Marcus of Queensberry Rules. 

    I heard somebody really smart say that when Republicans complain about court rulings they always explain themselves. The Democrats don’t feel like doing that, even the ones with bar cards. I mean it’s terrible.

    My colleague Joe Cunningham reported on some of the unhinged reactions from the peanut gallery including Keith Olbermann, former acting U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal, and former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Bharara said, “SCOTUS read neither the room nor the Constitution correctly.” Funny, and perhaps telling that he doesn’t understand that the Court isn’t supposed to be ‘reading the room’ but deciding purely on the Constitution no matter what the ‘room’ says.
