“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."

    1. Actually excellent Rufus. Trying to top it I come up empty.

      I was thinking of "Quirk approaching Maria for intimate relationship" but thought better of it.

  2. I part of this great nation because my grandfather was born here, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
    He took a horse, back in 1895, and ride it all the way down to Guanajuato, looking for his American dream.
    No penny in his pocket, only dreams in his head.
    And he was an immigrant coming from the States into Mexico.
    And he found his American dream in Mexico.

    1. A wet front, eh ?

    2. Actually Carlos that would have been Mitt Romney's ancestor, Miles Park Romney, who went to Mexico in 1885 to practice polygamy after it was banned in the United States.

  3. “When gangs took over the [abandoned public land in Philadelphia] and the neighborhood took a turn for the worse, horses became a way of saving lives.

    By getting boys interested in raising a horse rather than killing another human being, these cowboys gave the youth something positive: father figures, focus, and the ability to stand tall.”

  6. The Islamic Republic of Iran has executed approximately sixty-four of its own citizens in the first few weeks of January, according to recent reports by the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center and Iran Focus.

    At its current pace, Iran will put around 1000 people to death, which would shatter last year’s record under “moderate” President Hassan Rouhani, which saw 721 Iranians reportedly executed by their own government.

    The Iranian regime started 2015 off with a bang, executing a reported fifteen individuals, including four women. In an officially recognized execution on January 17th, the Fars Province Justice released a picture showing two men hanging from a noose.

    On Christmas Day, 2014, the Iranian government hanged at least nine prisoners, according to multiple reports.

    Many “offenders” are declared Moharebeh (waging war against God), but the majority of those who are executed are convicted on simple drug charges. Other crimes, such as being a homosexual or blasphemy against Islam’s Muhammad, are also punishable by death. Gay activists estimate that some 4,000 alleged gays have been executed by Iran since its 1979 Islamic Revolution.

    Most victims of capital punishment are executed via hanging. When public executions are conducted, the victim is usually hung in the air off of a crane.

    While killing its own citizens at a record pace, the Islamic Republic of Iran has also continued to rapidly develop its nuclear weapons program. Several weeks ago, President Hassan Rouhani proudly announced that Iran had broken ground on two new power plants. The same day, news broke that Tehran was actively involved in helping Syria’s Assad regime build a nuclear plant of its own.

    Additionally, last week, Israel’s Channel 2 news captured a satellite image of an 89-foot-long ballistic missile near Tehran which may have the capability to hit the United States.

    Meanwhile, Iran has continued to grossly violate its interim nuclear deal which it had agreed to with the P5+1 Nations.

    1. When did nuclear power plants become a nuclear weapons program?

    2. Fighting for civilization.

    3. When they began super enrichment.

    4. Does that mean that Brazil has a nuclear weapons program, too?
      Japan, South Korea, Canada, Ukraine, Spain, Switzerland, Czech Republic, South Africa, Armenia, Slovinia ...
      do they all have nuclear weapons programs, because they all have nuclear power plants, those ten and eleven more.

      By Anonymous's calculations, Israel is to be considered a nuclear rogue, too.

    5. Now it is said that South Korea and Japan are a 'screw driver turn' from having nuclear weapon capabilities.

      That genie is out of the bottle.

    6. Brazil, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Ukraine, Spain, Switzerland, Czech Republic, South Africa, Armenia, Slovinia together and collectively do not spend billions a year funding genocidal group and proclaiming death to Israel and death to America.

      Your "friends" the Iranians are insane and bent on mass destruction.

      Life aint fair, and Iran has not earned that right. And in a more perfect world? you'd already be locked up for your stalking of the wrong Jew for almost a decade....

      But life is not fair.

      You are still free for now and Iran still is viewed by the nations you listed as one insane clown asshole of a nation.

    7. Israel will not allow IAEA inspections, but they too ...
      ... began super enrichment.

      It is even reported they have built the warheads.

    8. Israel is not a signor to the IAEA protocols, so since they unlike Iran, did not enter into a contract and receive the benefits of that agreement, like Iran did, they (Israel) have no responsibility to the IAEA (unlike Iran that did sign a legal contract to do so)

      Contracts and agreements mean something in the world Jack, Iran is a serial violator of agreements it goes into....

      Just like a husband and father agrees to be there as a father and husband, beating said child or wife to cause them to flee is a violation of the marriage contract...

    9. .

      Exactly what benefits has Iran received?


    10. The NPT is often seen to be based on a central bargain: “the NPT non-nuclear-weapon states agree never to acquire nuclear weapons and the NPT nuclear-weapon states in exchange agree to share the benefits of peaceful nuclear technology and to pursue nuclear disarmament aimed at the ultimate elimination of their nuclear arsenals”.[4] The treaty is reviewed every five years in meetings called Review Conferences of the Parties to the Treaty of Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Even though the treaty was originally conceived with a limited duration of 25 years, the signing parties decided, by consensus, to extend the treaty indefinitely and without conditions during the Review Conference in New York City on 11 May 1995, culminating successful U.S. government efforts led by Ambassador Thomas Graham Jr..

      Iran received information on nuclear technology , thus saving them the trouble and expense on learning protocols about that technology.

      The third pillar allows for and agrees upon the transfer of nuclear technology and materials to NPT signatory countries for the development of civilian nuclear energy programs in those countries, as long as they can demonstrate that their nuclear programs are not being used for the development of nuclear weapons.

    11. If we are going to discuss the three pillars, lets be ral

      Israel, a secular and socialist state that was built upon ...
      ... the Three Pillars of Apartheid

      The first pillar
      “derives from Israeli laws and policies that establish Jewish identity for purposes of law and afford a preferential legal status and material benefits to Jews over non-Jews.”

      The second pillar is reflected in
      “Israel’s ‘grand’ policy to fragment the OPT [and] ...
      ... ensure that Palestinians remain confined to the reserves designated for them ...
      ... while Israeli Jews are prohibited from entering those reserves but enjoy freedom of movement...
      ... throughout the rest of the Palestinian territory.

      This policy is evidenced by Israel’s extensive appropriation of Palestinian land, which continues to shrink the territorial space available to Palestinians;

      the hermetic closure and isolation of the Gaza Strip from the rest of the OPT;
      the deliberate severing of East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank;

      and the appropriation and construction policies serving to carve up the West Bank into an intricate and well-serviced network of connected settlements for Jewish-Israelis ...

      ... an archipelago of besieged and non-contiguous enclaves for Palestinians.”

      The third pillar is
      “Israel’s invocation of ‘security’ to validate sweeping restrictions on Palestinian freedom of ...
      ... opinion, expression, assembly, association and movement [to] mask a true underlying intent ...
      ... to suppress dissent to its system of domination and thereby maintain control over Palestinians as a group.”

  7. Iran fears Isis militants are part of wider Sunni backlash
    With Islamic State militants just kilometres from the country’s western border, and increasingly radical anti-Shia militants to the east in Pakistan, Gareth Smyth examines Iran’s Sunni problem

    Iranian radicalism carried the danger of a backlash from Sunnis Muslims, who are around 80% of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, while Shia are 10-15% and a majority in only Iran, Iraq, Azerbaijan and Bahrain.

    Is that nightmare now becoming real? Today the Islamic State (Isis), which regards Shia as infidels and has killed thousands, is barely kilometres from the Iranian border in Iraq’s Diyala province. But if the rapid rise of Isis to the west has alarmed the Iranian public, there are also developments to its east.

    Several Pakistan Taliban commanders have declared their loyalty to Isis, including former spokesman Shahidullah Shahid. There are reports of Isis establishing an affiliate, Ansar-ul Daulat-e Islamia fil Pakistan, and luring recruits from two Sunni militant groups, Lashkar-e Jhangvi and Ahl-e Sunnat Wai Jamat.

    For 30 years, Pakistan has been a centre of a brand of Sunni extremism, related to Saudi Wahhabism, that considers Shia apostates. Violence against Shia has killed thousands in recent years. In Baluchistan, neighbouring Iran, eight Shia were taken from a bus in October and gunned down in Quetta, the provincial capital.

    A Human Rights Watch report in June highlighted a litany of atrocities against Shia, especially against ethnic Hazara in Baluchistan province, that have killed many hundreds in recent years, including two bombings in Quetta in 2013 in which at least 180 died.

    Faster faster faster

    1. Celebrating murder, is that the Zionist Way?

      I know you have advocated for mass murder in the past, "O"rdure, obviously you are staying the course.

    2. Please show me where I am "celebrating murder"?

      You take liberties with other folks words way to often.

      As for "mass murder"?

      Nope once again, your selective defective mind may think that but if you learn to read English, in context you will see that I do not advocate mass murder. I might advocate the American position pro preemptive strikes against an enemy...

      But as you have claimed, your mass killing of civilians in Central America was not murder as you were never charged and were doing it under the pay and instructions of others...

      Try again

    3. Advocating the term "faster faster faster" is not celebratory...

      It's rather a call for speed...

      What is happening among the sunni and shia needs to speed up...

      Jack, we all know that English is not your first language, i suspect arabic is....

      You need to go back to your classes and brush up...

    4. ... hat have killed many hundreds in recent years, including two bombings in Quetta in 2013 in which at least 180 died.

      Faster faster faster

      Celebrating murder.

    5. Your denial, deceptive, at best.
      Especially when dovetailed with your advocating mass murder, in the past.

    6. time stamp and date, and complete quote jackass...

  8. So Iran's Shia card has been played and created the Sunni backlash of Isis...

    Iran’s approach in Iraq has been rooted in Shia solidarity. Nouri al-Maliki, Iraqi vice-president and as former prime minister widely blamed for alienating Iraq’s Sunnis, was recently in Iran to improve what he called “mutual co-operation” against “Takfiri terrorists”. Shia militia leaders in Iraq have been quoted extolling the role of Qassem Soleimani, the head of the al-Quds section of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, to the extent of leading a front-line operation in the recapture of Jurf al-Sakher from Isis, shunning a flak jacket in the process.

    Human Rights Watch has documented abuses both by mainly Iraqi Shia government forces and by Shia militias (it has described the two as “indistinguishable”). After the killing of 34 civilians in a mosque in Diyala province in August, Joe Stork, HRW regional director noted: “Iraqi authorities and Iraq’s allies alike have ignored this horrific attack and then they wonder why the militant group Islamic State has had such appeal among Sunni communities.”

    Faster and faster...

    1. "and then they wonder why the militant group Islamic State has had such appeal among Sunni communities"

      This is what I've been a hinting hinting hinting at -

      ISIS has more support than supposed and are going to be around a long time.

    2. Wrong, again, Draft Dodger.

      While the underlying ideology will remain, as it did during and after the infamous 'Surge' of US troops into Iraq, ISIS will be gone.

      ISIS is not an ideology, Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson, it is not a religion, it is a governing structure.
      ISIS will be remove from the body politic of Iraq this summer.

    3. Just as the Whigs disappeared here in the US in 1860.

    4. You are, as usual, full of shit, Dead Beat Dad and War Criminal, self confessed.

      But I got to run into town.

      The there's a new laugher

    5. Robert "Draft dodger" Peterson, let us see that confession.
      It has often been asked for, but never provided, because it never existed.

  9. All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Parties to the Treaty in a position to do so shall also co-operate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, especially in the territories of non-nuclear-weapon States Party to the Treaty, with due consideration for the needs of the developing areas of the world.

  10. Middle East scholar Mike Evans says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now stuck in a partisan tug-of-war among American politicians that could cost him his job, and he believes whoever convinced Netanyahu to agree to address the U.S. Congress ought to be lose their job.

    With just weeks remaining before next month’s parliamentary elections in Israel, Netanyahu and much of Israeli politics are consumed by the partisan battle here in Washington over Netanyahu’s upcoming address to a joint session of Congress over the Iranian nuclear threat.

    On Jan. 21, House Speaker John Boehner announced Netanyahu would address Congress on March 3. The White House complained that it had not been notified and called the invitation a breach of protocol, particularly so close to the Israeli elections. Many Democrats, including Vice President Joe Biden and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have said they will not attend the speech.

    “It’s a horrendous mistake, and whoever advised him to do it should be fired,” Evans said. “I’m sick over it. I’m sick that he’s put in that position. Obviously, he’s brilliant and articulate, and he knows what’s going on with Iran, but the timing is horrible, absolutely horrible.”

    Evans, who is a longtime personal friend of Netanyahu and the author of 67 published books, including “Jimmy Carter: The Liberal Left and World Chaos” and “Showdown with Nuclear Iran,” fears this massive distraction during a tight campaign could give momentum to the more moderate and liberal political elements in Israel, which would be welcome news in the Obama White House.

    “It’s a no-win for [Netanyahu],” he said. “The opposition party is screaming their heads off, ‘Cancel it! Cancel it!’ So if he cancels it, he looks weak. On the other hand, he has a real, genuine message that needs to be heard by the House and by the nation. But the timing is extremely serious and could end up existential for him. It could in fact cost him the election.”

    Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with Mike Evans:


  11. It is worth noting that when a legitimate terrorist attack occurs, in Europe, one that does not seem to be a "False Flag" with planted evidence left behind, the media reaction to it is quite muted.

    Fancy that.

    3. You are rambling about "legitimate terrorist attacks", rat shit for brains.

      Time for you to get some sleepy pie winks now.

  12. Some 700 British artists pledged to boycott Israel on Saturday in reaction to what they termed “the Palestinian catastrophe,” the British newspaper Guardian reported on Saturday.

    The artists, who include Roger Waters, Brian Eno, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Richard Ashcroft, and others, pledged that they “will not engage in business-as-usual cultural relations with Israel.”

    “We will accept neither professional invitations to Israel, nor funding, from any institutions linked to its government,” the letter read.

    “Now we are saying, in Tel Aviv, Netanya, Ashkelon or Ariel, we won’t play music, accept awards, attend exhibitions, festivals or conferences, run masterclasses or workshops, until Israel respects international law and ends its colonial oppression of the Palestinians,” the letter reads ...

  13. I was born in Israel and it was many years before I realized that Israel was Palestine. I was relatively patriotic. I was looking forward to serving in the army and then I grasped that there was little truth in the Jewish historical narrative. I then gathered that I was living on someone else’s land. At the same time I discovered the saxophone. By the age of 30, I left Israel and never went back.

    Q: You were born in Israel but you are against Israeli occupation and its politics. You are living in the West, how do you cope?

    A: Let me tell you something and it is crucial. In my entire career, I have never been subject to abuse by the British government, never been subject to abuse by the American government. Although the infamous Alan Dershowitz, who is now implicated in a huge sex scandal with minors, labelled me ‘as the number one enemy of the Jewish people,’ I’ve never been subject to direct abuse by the Israeli government. Even the NSA doesn’t harass me. The only people who stalk me continuously are the Jewish left and the Guardian newspaper. I can say that it’s not a problem but I came to the realization that the biggest enemy of our elementary freedoms are the progressives and I’ll explain why.

    In the West and maybe in Turkey as well, we have issues with political correctness. What is political correctness? Political correctness is politics that doesn’t allow political opposition. But this is clearly the definition we associate with dictatorship. But political correctness is far worse than dictatorship. Why? Because in the case of dictatorship you experience an opposition to a regime that is distinct from you, but in the case of political correctness it is you who silence yourself. Political Correctness is a form of self-censorship. The Jewish left and the progressives made us into a collective of impotents. Our task is to move on and to erect our resistance against this cancerous ideology.

    1. Q: Can we separate Judaism from Zionism?

      A: No. Israel isn’t called the ‘Zionist State,’ it defines itself as the ‘Jewish State.’ The parties in the government are called “Israel Our Home” and the “Jewish Home” not the “Zionist Home”*. Now the Israeli cabinet has approved the National Bill that defines Israel as the Jewish state not the Zionist state. Zionism from an Israeli perspective died in 1948. Zionism was a promise to erect a Jewish state in Zion (Palestine). Once, Israel was established, Zionism was finished with its role. The only people who maintain the Zionist nonsense are the Jewish left because they want to differentiate between Jewishness and Zionism. This is why they call Israel colonialism. But Israel is not colonialism. Colonialism is a clear exchange between a mother state and a settler state. Israel is a settler state, yet there is no Jewish mother state. This is why they call it apartheid. Israel in not apartheid: Apartheid is a racist system of exploitation. But Israel doesn’t want to exploit the Palestinians, it wants them gone. Israel is a Hitlerian ethnic cleansing model. The Left uses the terms ‘Colonialism’, ‘Zionism’, and ‘Apartheid’ in an attempt to divert attention from the ‘J’ word. For solidarity with Palestine to be meaningful, we have to de-Judify our terminology. Not to kick out the Jews, but to prevent Jewish interests from defining the boundaries of the discussion.

      Q: Can we see Israel and Palestine as two states?

      A: No.

      Q: Will the Palestinians be able to return to their county?

      A: This is what they are fighting for. And any person who doesn’t accept the right of return is not a genuine supporter.

      Q: What do you think about what Ahmadinejad said about the Holocaust?

      A: I agree 100 percent with everything Ahmadinejad said about the Holocaust. Ahmadinejad basically said that Holocaust must be treated as a historical chapter. At the moment it is treated as a religion. And if it is a religion I want to maintain my right to be an atheist. In contemporary Judified reality it is OK not to believe in God but if you don’t believe in Auschwitz you will be penalised and severely. I don’t accept it.

    How this relates to Hubble is for you to puzzle out.....

  16. Here's why. I am deadset against my country drifting into further needless unwinnable wars. I view Netanyahu's arguments on Iran, however sincerely held on his side, as being wrong and unhelpfully warmongering from a U.S. perspective. Or at least from my U.S. perspective, as developed over the years:

    1. In my view, and as I've argued in my book Blind Into Baghdad and in many articles including "Bush's Lost Year," the decision to invade Iraq was the worst American foreign-policy mistake of my lifetime. The Vietnam War was more damaging overall, but also more understandable. As laid out by Les Gelb and Richard Betts in The Irony of Vietnam: The System Worked and by other authors elsewhere, the eventual calamity of the Vietnam war was the result of step-by-step decisions each of which seemed "rational" at the time. Iraq, by contrast, was a wholly unnecessary self-inflicted wound.

    2. The arguments made to promote the Iraq war—we must strike before it's too late; diplomacy is a ruse and has run its course; the regime is irrational and can only be crushed rather than reasoned with; military "solutions" will in fact solve the problem—very closely parallel those now being made about Iran. And they are being made by many of the same people, notably including Benjamin Netanyahu. Read this astonishing Haaretz story for more on that front.

    3. Before the Iraq war, I admired State Senator Barack Obama's judgment in opposing it. I admire President Obama's judgment now in pushing hard for a diplomatic solution with Iran, despite huffing about "weakness" from the same people who rushed us into war with Iraq. Many people are doing the huffing, but only one of them has been asked to address a joint meeting of Congress. That's why I'm talking about him.

    So when the Middle East is not my beat, why do I care about this episode? Because we can't stand to drift into another of these wars.

    1. O'bozo showed the worst judgment of all in taking the troops out of Iraq too soon.

      The current chaos is the direct result of his stupidity.

    2. Schedule was written by George W Bush, he had negotiated the withdrawal with the government elected in the "Purple Finger" elections he engineered for Iraq.

    3. Not only does Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson want US troops to bleed out in the sands of Iraq and Syria, he desires for them to be tried for crimes in Iraqi courts, sent to Iraqi prisons.

      That was the demand from the Iraqi government, our Draft Dodger would have complied.

    4. Neither GW Bush nor BH Obama would allow the US military to operate under that type of constraint.

      Why would Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson?

    5. :)

      Maybe Bob likes the idea of War Criminals like you, Jack "Ass" Hawkins, sitting in prisons out in the desert, or in your case, in the jungle, where you belong.

      Good ol' dumbshit rat, he is now on record as being "pro war criminal".

      Jack "Ass" Hawkins aka rat certainly wasn't slighting his accomplishments when he publically admitted to being a MORON.

    6. Happy face smiles do not alleviate the fact you are a liar, Robert.

      Please, post that admission.
      Time and date stamped.

      But you cannot do that, can you.


  17. Iraq 2002, Iran 2012: Compare and contrast Netanyahu's speeches

    The arguments are the same, the intonation is the same, even the advisers are the same.

    Ten years before his “red line” speech at the United Nations last week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared before the United States Congress and called for bringing down Saddam Hussein before he developed nuclear weapons.

    “There is no question whatsoever that Saddam is seeking and is working and is advancing towards the development of nuclear weapons – no question whatsoever,” Netanyahu, then a private citizen, told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on September 12, 2002.

  18. Jeb Bush doesn't want to talk about the Iraq war

    I didn't ask what benefits the Iranians were entitled to under the NPT. I asked what benefits they have received.

    The US gave (sorry sold) the Iranians their first nuclear plant back in '63 along with fuel enriched to 93%.

    It was only shortly after signing the NPT that the Iranian revolution occurred and only a couple years after that in the early 80's that the the regime was put on the terrorist list which effectively installed sanctions. They have been under a sanctions regime at various levels ever since. Any 'benefits' they received (other than buying equipment and plants) came from the money they put out to the Khan Group.
