“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."

    U.S. State Department “Welcomes” News That Saudi Arabia Will Head U.N. Human Rights Panel

    Glenn Greenwald
    Sep. 23 2015, 11:38 a.m.

    Last week’s announcement that Saudi Arabia — easily one of the world’s most brutally repressive regimes — was chosen to head a U.N. Human Rights Council panel provoked indignation around the world. That reaction was triggered for obvious reasons. Not only has Saudi Arabia executed more than 100 people already this year, mostly by beheading (a rate of 1 execution every two days), and not only is it serially flogging dissidents, but it is reaching new levels of tyrannical depravity as it is about to behead and then crucify the 21-year-old son of a prominent regime critic, Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, who was convicted at the age of 17 of engaging in demonstrations against the government.

    Most of the world may be horrified at the selection of Saudi Arabia to head a key U.N. human rights panel, but the U.S. State Department most certainly is not. Quite the contrary: its officials seem quite pleased about the news. At a State Department briefing yesterday afternoon, Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner was questioned by the invaluable Matt Lee of AP, and this is the exchange that resulted:

    QUESTION: Change topic? Saudi Arabia.

    MR. TONER: Saudi Arabia.

    QUESTION: Yesterday, Saudi Arabia was named to head the Human Rights Council, and today I think they announced they are about to behead a 21-year-old Shia activist named Muhammed al-Nimr. Are you aware of that?

    MR. TONER: I’m not aware of the trial that you — or the verdict — death sentence.

    QUESTION: Well, apparently, he was arrested when was 17 years old and kept in juvenile detention, then moved on. And now, he’s been scheduled to be executed.

    MR. TONER: Right. I mean, we’ve talked about our concerns about some of the capital punishment cases in Saudi Arabia in our Human Rights Report, but I don’t have any more to add to it.

    QUESTION: So you —

    QUESTION: Well, how about a reaction to them heading the council?

    MR. TONER: Again, I don’t have any comment, don’t have any reaction to it. I mean, frankly, it’s — we would welcome it. We’re close allies. If we —


    That’s about as clear as it gets. The U.S. government “welcomes” the appointment of Saudi Arabia to a leadership position on this Human Rights panel because it’s a “close ally.” As I documented two weeks ago courtesy of an equally candid admission from an anonymous “senior U.S. official”: “The U.S. loves human-rights-abusing regimes and always has, provided they ‘cooperate.’ … The only time the U.S. government pretends to care in the slightest about human rights abuses is when they’re carried out by ‘countries that don’t cooperate.'”

    It's a truism of American foreign policy. Always has been.

    One day the Taliban is a terrorist group. The next, they are a resistance group. The PKK is a terrorist group. Their brothers, the YPG/PYD who also consider imprisoned rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan their spiritual leader, receive air support from the US. Mohammar Qadaffi was our friend and ally in the WOT until he was not.

    It's a familiar pattern. The US excuses outrages (as was noted in Deuce's post from yesterday) and sells out allies depending on the changing circumstances.


  2. Video-"UNARMED black man ..."
    Reports to the police were that he was armed.

    Something stinks.

    1. Whomever titled that video is trying to push an agenda.

      The cops were quick to pull the plug on this man though.

      Just my opinion.

  3. The cop in the second video should be relieved of duty.
    Then tested for steroid use.
    What a prick.

  4. Georgia Southern tomorrow 'at Home in the Dome', Vandal fans across the nation and around the world.

    Kickoff time 6:00pm Pacific.

    If we win tomorrow it will be the first time in 10 (ten) years that we have won two games in a row......

    Go, Vandals !

    Big Blood Moon Sunday right after the sun goes down, watch for it. Next Big Blood Moon is scheduled for 2033.


    I favor pulling the Police out of Philly. In three months most of the place would be run by the meanest street warlords around, and the white areas would be armed to the teeth, with, not Neighborhood Watch Programs, but Armed Neighborhood Self Defense Militias.

    Deuce would have to join one of these Militia Groups for self defense.

    Hopefully this would finally sober him up and get him off his juvenile habit of always shitting on the Police, week after week.

    The Courts, by the way, would no longer function.......

  5. Go, Ben !

    USA USA Update
    Ben Carson: By keeping out Islam, we protect women (+video)

    Is there a 'war on women'? Yes – but not in the US, the Republican candidate told supporters, promising that immigrants are 'welcome to come to America, but they don't get to change who we are.'

    While stumping in Michigan yesterday, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson paid a visit to faith-based Spring Arbor University, where he told students America should be a “Judeo-Christian” nation that will defend women’s rights.

    Dr. Carson’s speech took place days after his hotly-debated comments on “Meet the Press” last Sunday, when he claimed that a Muslim should not be president because, in his opinion, Islam contradicts American values and the US Constitution.

    Carson was immediately criticized by figures from Hillary Clinton to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which called for him to exit the presidential race.

    Others, however, defended Carson, from “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade to Indian-American journalist Asra Nomani, who penned an opinion piece called “To This Secular Muslim, Ben Carson Had A Point” for the Daily Beast. No matter where Muslim communities are, Nomani writes, they “still struggle with existential questions about whether Islam is compatible with democracy and secularism.”

    According to the Detroit News, Carson clarified that he would only object to a Muslim candidate who was not “willing to put the Constitution above their ideology”: an accusation some liberals might bring against Carson himself, whose image as a devout Christian with conservative social values has helped him rise to number two in the Republican field.

    In Spring Arbor, Carson accused critics of over-sensitivity: “I have no interest in being like everybody else and giving away all of our values and principles for the sake of political correctness,” he said."There is such a thing as an American dream and the American way. Anybody is welcome to come to America, but they don't get to change who we are.”

    As examples, he pointed to Sharia law, a diverse system of religious rules followed by some Muslim societies, arguing that it oppresses women and treats them like “chattel.” “We do not want to import that type of ideology into America,” he declared........

    Deuce recently put a post implying that the Republicans were waging a 'war on women'.

    What horse shit.

    I've known hundreds of women in my wife and none, whether Democrats, Republicans, or anything else, has ever accused the Republican Party of waging a 'war on women'.

    There is a continual war on women in Islam, however. In that wonderful nation Iran, if a women gets out of line, it's the old stoning method that often gets applied, the woman being put in a pit up to her neck, and the mob having at her. Another option is hanging the women from cranes.........lesser punishments include whipping till the back is shredded to a red bloody pulp.

    None of these punishments apply in Israel, by the way.

    Achille Lauro hijacking
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Achille Lauro ca. 1987
    On October 7, 1985, four men representing the Palestine Liberation Front (PLF) hijacked the Italian MS Achille Lauro liner off the coast of Egypt, as she was sailing from Alexandria to Ashdod, Israel. The hijacking was masterminded by Muhammad Zaidan, leader of the PLF. One 69-year-old Jewish American man in a wheelchair, Leon Klinghoffer, was murdered by the hijackers and thrown overboard.

    Never mentioned by Deuce…

    And he didn't have a gun.

    1. .

      As I recall, Deuce didn't put this one up either,

      On July 31st, masked settlers firebombed a Palestinian home in the village of Duma. 18-month old Ali Dawabsheh died that night. His father Sa'ad died days later. His mother Reham, a schoolteacher, died a few days ago. His 4-year old brother Ahmed remains hospitalized in serious condition.

      Haaretz reported that Israel has identified the suspects, but won't file charges yet.

      Israel’s defense establishment knows who is responsible for the arson attack that killed three members of a Palestinian family two months ago, but has chosen to prevent legal recourse in order to protect the identity of their sources, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told a closed meeting of some 20 young Likud activists in Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

      Why the f--k does the defense minister think it's appropriate to brief a group of "young Likud activists" before the victim's family and the media?
