“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

And then there's the "birther" controversy. The progressives have controlled and framed the concept right from the get-go. This has been one of the many issues (including "tea baggers") that the left has seized upon to tar conservatives.

The left has painted "birthers" as racists, nuts, and paranoids. What gets left out of the equation is: one, Obama has spent millions of dollars on attorneys protecting his birth certificate; two, Obama apparently traveled to Pakistan in 1981 when Americans were banned from going there; and three, Obama's social security number is purportedly from Connecticut, a state in which he never lived.

Although there are valid questions about the mysterious Mr. O, until lately, it's been impossible to get the average American to listen. This is because the left is so much better at controlling what enters the collective unconscious.

Of course, the left controls the flow of ideas by maintaining a stranglehold on the mainstream media. But there's another reason: the left subscribes to Alinsky-type smear tactics.- American Thinker

    Does he plan to retroactively prosecute Palin's daughter?

    "Women who engage in sex with other women, and men who have sex with other men, and call it a loving relationship are simply deluding themselves into thinking it is OK. It is just flat out wrong, but as a free country we tolerate many types of distasteful behaviors. Tolerance is OK, but don't expect us to accept it."

    I don't suppose he will get many votes from the gals in the Alaskan branch of my softball league. But as long as his pro-Israel credentials are as impeccable as Palin's, WiO is all for him.

    That not a one did or will, cannot be laid at the feet of the media.

    Mr Obama was on the ballot, in Alaska, while Mrs Palin was Governor, there. If there was any question of his legal qualifications to be on the ballot, she could have forced the issue.

    Mr Perry of Texas, Ms Brewer of AZ or any other of the State governors could have.

  21. 24. Morton Doodslag
    When the Khaddaffi regime began to totter, the harlots at the London School of Economics faltered too. Suddenly that PhD they handed Khaddaffi’s shiny son for £1.5M didn’t look like such a good idea in the cold light on the morning after. Heads rolled — but only figuratively.

    Much of the western scum who take their blood money from the hands of Saudi Arabia et al still look clean, but that may change in an instant if things go south. Muslim endowments, if added up, amount to hundreds of millions for just the above-board transactions at the best universities such as Harvard, Princeton, Georgetown, University of Michigan, etc.

    How much loot is doled out in secret?

    And what other mechanisms are employed to keep the information about Islam positive?

    Here at PJM a writer is featured who is supposedly renowned for his forthright reporting on the ME. Michael J. Totten once told me in email that he didn’t know much about Islam and hadn’t made a study of it. But he spends most of his time telling us how exactly like us the Muslims are, how they just want their place under the democratic sun. He waxes on and on about Cedar Revolutions, and Jasmine Revolutions, and gushes about how much the Kosovar Muslims love us. Why wouldn’t they? We gave them their own Jihad mini-state as a reward for the FIRST use of R2P by Clinton in the 90s.

    Yesterday Totten asked “Who Are the Libyan Rebels?” In answer, astoundingly and with a straight face, he provides an interview with a woman whom he proclaims is a PR consultant who apparently happens to like hanging out with Jihadis on the front line… Totten dismisses this woman’s PR background, vouches for her honesty, and his interview is conveyed in a completely uncritical fashion as she says all the right things and pushes all the right buttons about these rebels to assuage any Westerner’s concerns. A couple people question the fact the woman is a PR hack in his comments section, whereupon Totten threatens to ban them. He also points out in one of his own comments in the thread, that if he were on the ground, he’d find the rebels to be exactly as she does…. Hmmm. I guess he already knew what kind of picture he wanted to present before he cobbled the ‘interview’ together.

    CNN notoriously revealed the depths of betrayal they were willing to plumb in order to gain access to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. Just how far these whores are willing to go to gain access is a fact. Who is accepting money? Who is simply whitewashing to gain access? Who is telling the truth? We really can’t tell – ergo, ALL these experts and spokesmen and supposed journalists must be viewed with extreme skepticism. But one thing is clear, the trillions which now sit in Muslim hands is being used to buy influence and friends and produce comforting pictures of Muslims for the infidels. All of it is a hint of the larger Jihad against us on several fronts. And the traitors who abet our Muslim enemy are the worst scum our society can produce.

  23. I said:

    "You probably don't trust doctors and lawyers too, huh Morton?"


    "They Appear to be Credible"

    US officials also appear unclear about the allegiances of rebel groups and what sort of governmental system might replace the dictator's rule after 41 years.

    In one of three interviews yesterday, Mr Obama said the rebels were "saying the right things" so far.

    "Most of them are professionals, lawyers, doctors, people who appear to be credible,"
    he told CBS.

    "That doesn't mean that among all the people who oppose Gaddafi, there might not be elements that are unfriendly to the United States and our interests."

  24. .

    Well, Doug, I hadn't planned on watching your Eating the Rich video but I did.

    And it is compelling as far as it goes. It illustrates the same fallacy I see with rat's plan to sell off assets to meet the deficit. Taking all the money from everyone like sellng off the assets is a short-term fix. What happens in year two?

    That being said, the video is also meaningless.

    Earlier, I posted the following article from Ruth Marcus:

    The False Choice

    The tactic Iowahawk and Bill Whittle are using is the same one Obama uses all the time. It is as irritating coming from them as it is when Obama uses it. They are offering us a 'False Choice'.

    They are pointing out the futility of taking everything from the rich. However, no one has ever suggested that as an alternative.

    If anyone has a problem seeing the logical fallacy being employed here, I would suggest they read a book on logic.

    (A good alternative to get a quick idea would be Being Logical by McInerney. It is only about a 1/4 inch thick and can be read in an hour.)


  25. .

    You stress the need for cutting spending Dougo; yet what is extremely disappointing is that you fail to see that many of the spending programs that you decry have been set up for the benefit of the rich you eschew to eat.

    They are, in effect, a transfer of funds from you and me to the rich. If you don't want to tax the bastards on the money we are giving them, fine; but don't get incensed when some of us complain about being used as useful tools by hacks in D.C.


  26. Because, doug, those in power are looking to cover their ass. They failed to perform and are looking for an excuse for their incompetence.

    But, at least in AZ, the Sec of State approves the qualifications of everyone on the ballot.

    If there are questions, as to qualifications regarding residence, etc. the Sec of State investigates and determines whether the candidate can legitimately be on the ballot.

    Just as they check the signatures on the ballot propositions.

    What other States have or will do, that they are passing laws, proves they have the power to validate the candidates qualifications. That those States failed to use their authority, not the fault of the media.

  27. "They are pointing out the futility of taking everything from the rich. However, no one has ever suggested that as an alternative.

    If anyone has a problem seeing the logical fallacy being employed here, I would suggest they read a book on logic."

    That may or may not be their point:

    My point is that unless spending is cut, no amount of taxes will be enough.

    As to transfers from us to the rich, nobody comes close to the new recordholders, Obama, Geitherner, & Co.

    Socialists not in need, but Socialists, indeed.

  29. Liberal Columnist: Ignoring Islam-Terrorism Connection is 'Politically Correct Delusion'

    The Washington Post's Ruth Marcus defends Rep. Peter King's congressional hearings on radical Islam in America.

    While the New York Times editorial board is hyperventilating over Rep. Peter King's Homeland Security Committee hearings radicalization in the American Muslim community, liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus sounded a much-needed reasonable note in her column today.

    Marcus recounts Attorney General Eric Holder's unwillingness to say in a congressional hearing that radical Islam is a significant motivator for terrorists:

    The roots of Holder's reticence are admirable:

    He wanted to avoid tarring an entire faith with the sins of a few extreme adherents. But the unavoidable fact is that, however much violent terror reflects a distortion of the tenets of Islam, it is not only practiced by adherents of the religion but practiced in its name.

    To ignore the religious nature of the terrorist threat is to succumb to politically correct delusion. To ignore the homegrown religious nature of the terrorist threat is to succumb even further.

    Read the whole thing here. Also be sure to read Reuel Marc Gerecht's article on the importance of King's hearings in a recent issue of THE WEEKLY STANDARD. Here's a taste:

    But congressional hearings, even when one-sided, do serve the useful function of challenging the executive branch’s views, which more than Congress’s set the tone of government.

    And when dealing with Islam, the Obama administration has been incurious and dogmatic.

    From commendably liberal sentiments of religious tolerance—and in the president’s case, probably from his own affection for his father’s abandoned faith—the administration can’t bring itself to state the obvious:

    Islamic culture, in both the Old and New Worlds, has had a hellacious time absorbing modernity and has produced a large number of militants with a soft spot for violence against Americans, Europeans, Israelis, Jews, Christians, and, for that matter, Muslims deemed religiously incorrect.

    It has produced an impressive number of young men and women who are willing to kill those supposed unholy.

    Difference here is they can't play the "support our troops" card because there's only advisors there now. We're at the JFK stage of Vietnam, not LBJ.

  49. Farrakhan got $8 million from Gaddafi
    Thomas Lifson
    Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam (respectfully referred to as "Minister Farrakhan" by our president), is defending Gaddafi -- and received $8 million dollars from the Libyan dictator. Mary Mitchell of the Chicago Sun-Times reports:

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan defended Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi as a "brother" during a two-hour news conference on Thursday, while refraining from condemning President Obama personally for America's support of the rebels. (snip)

    Gadhafi has been a friend and financial benefactor of the group since 1971 when he loaned the Nation of Islam $3 million to purchase the building that became the national headquarters for the Nation of Islam.

    In a column that appeared in the organization's Final Call newspaper in 2009, Farrakhan claimed that Gadhafi also loaned the group $5 million for "economic development, then forgave the loan."

    Farrakhan is a Hyde Park neighbor of the president ("just a guy in the neighborhood"?) and a close friend of Jeremiah Wright, the president's longtime pastor and spiritual mentor. Reportedly, Obama attended Farrakhan's "Million Man March" on Washington.

    Has Trinity United Church of Christ, which the president attended for two decades, received any money from Gaddafi?

    Let others delve that mystery if they can.

    God bless the roots!-Body and soul are one!
    The small become the great, the great the small;
    The right thing happens to the happy man.

    Child of the dark, he can out leap the sun,
    His being single, and that being all:
    The right thing happens to the happy man.

    Or he sits still, a solid figure when
    The self-destructive shake the common wall;
    Takes to himself what mystery he can,

    And, praising change as the slow night comes on,
    Wills what he would, surrendering his will
    Till mystery is no more: No more he can.
    The right thing happens to the happy man.

    It is interesting that you believe that Jamaat-ud-Dawah of Pakistan speaks for over a billion people. In Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States.

    Now, myself, I would not put Mormons, Catholics, Baptists, Seventh Day Adventists and the members of Dove World Outreach Centre in a single religious category, Christians.

    I recognize that there are differences between the Christian sects, just as there are in the Islamic sects.

  61. It must be true, you couldn't make this shit up - Jesus and the Mahdi to return together --

    The period of occultation (ghaybat) is divided into two parts:

    Ghaybat al-Sughra or Minor Occultation (874–941), consists of the first few decades after the Imam's disappearance when communication with him was maintained through deputies of the Imam.
    Ghaybat al-Kubra or Major Occultation began 941 and is believed to continue until a time decided by God, when the Mahdi will reappear to bring absolute justice to the world.
    [edit] Minor OccultationMain article: Minor Occultation
    During the Minor Occultation (Ghaybat al-Sughra), it is believed that al-Mahdi maintained contact with his followers via deputies (Arab. an-nuwāb al-arbaʻa literal: the four leaders). They represented him and acted as agents between him and his followers.

    Whenever the believers faced a problem, they would write their concerns and send them to his deputy. The deputy would ascertain his verdict, endorse it with his seal and signature and return it to the relevant parties. The deputies also collected zakat and khums on his behalf. For the Shia, the idea of consulting a hidden Imam was not something new because the two prior Shia Imams had, on occasion, met with their followers from behind a curtain. Also, during the oppressive rule of the later Abbasid caliphs, the Shia Imams were heavily persecuted and held prisoners, thus their followers were forced to consult their Imams via messengers or secretly.

    Shia Tradition hold that four deputies acted in succession to one another:

    1.Uthman ibn Sa’id al-Asadi
    2.Abu Jafar Muhammad ibn Uthman
    3.Abul Qasim Husayn ibn Ruh al-Nawbakhti
    4.Abul Hasan Ali ibn Muhammad al-Samarri
    In 941 (329 AH), the fourth deputy announced an order by al-Mahdi, that the deputy would soon die and that the deputyship would end and the period of the Major Occultation would begin.

    The fourth deputy died six days later and the Shi'a Muslims continue to await the reappearance of the Mahdi. In the same year, many notable Shi'a scholars such as Ali ibn Babwayh Qummi and Muhammad ibn Yaqub Kulayni, the learned compiler of al-Kafi also died.

    [edit] Major OccultationMain article: Major Occultation

    The name of Imam as it appears in Masjid NabawiAccording to the last letter of al-Mahdi to Ali ibn Muhammad al-Samarri "from the day of your death [the last deputy] the period of my major occultation (al ghaybatul kubra) will begin. Hence forth, no one will see me, unless and until Allah makes me appear."[citation needed] Another view is that the Hidden Imam is on earth "among the body of the Shia" but "incognito." "Numerous stories" exist of the Hidden Imam "manifesting himself to prominent members of the ulama."[11]

    [edit] ReappearanceTwelver Shi'as cite various references from the Qur'an and reports, or Hadith, from Imam Mahdi and the twelve Shi'a Imams with regard to the reappearance of al-Mahdi who would, in accordance with Allah's command, bring justice and peace to the world by establishing Islam throughout the world.

    Mahdi is reported to have said:

    Shi'as believe that Imam al-Mahdi will reappear when the world has fallen into chaos and civil war emerges between the human race for no reason. At this time, it is believed, half of the true believers will ride from Yemen carrying white flags to Makkah, while the other half will ride from Karbala, in Iraq, carrying black flags to Makkah. At this time, Imam al-Mahdi will come wielding Allah's Sword, the Blade of Evil's Bane, Zulfiqar (Arabic: ذو الفقار, ðū l-fiqār), the Double-Bladed Sword. He will also come and reveal the texts in his possession, such as al-Jafr and al-Jamia.

    Shi'as believe that Jesus will also come, (after Imam Mahdi's re-appearance to follow him.) the Imam Mahdi to destroy tyranny and falsehood, and to bring justice and peace to the world.[12]

  62. Imam al-Mahdi will come wielding Allah's Sword, the Blade of Evil's Bane, Zulfiqar (Arabic: ذو الفقار, ðū l-fiqār), the Double-Bladed Sword. He will also come and reveal the texts in his possession, such as al-Jafr and al-Jamia.

The other night he was onto Iran and the coming mahdi, who may be here now, and was quite concerned about it. He had a list up, as guys like him might do, listing the attributes of the coming of the anti-Christ on one side and the attributes of the coming of the mahdi on the other, and, by golly, they matched up perfectly.
