“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."

Someone is Lying and It Isn't Trump - Levin Proves The Media Has been Lying All Along About Trump and The Russians or All The US Intelligence Services Are Lying

Who is wrong, the media or the government under Obama?

Subj: You are so thoroughly dishonest
Did you listen to my show on Thursday, before President Trump tweeted? Did you watch my appearance on Fox and Friends Sunday morning? I know you are ticked I did not appear on your show, despite your numerous requests. Your ad hominem attacks about "right wing" radio host and conspiracy theory stuff … incredible.
I simply put together the stories that YOUR profession reported, on the public record. Do you deny there were two FISA applications? Do you deny the first was turned down? Do you deny the second was approved? It's called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. It is about surveillance. The fact that we cannot discern all the details because of the secrecy, except for what the media have revealed and selective leaks by the government, should cause you to want to know more, not to trash those who point it out.
And yes, we can make several logical implications based on events and experience. A FISA application is a big deal. One, or two in this case, that involve campaign surrogates, or a server or computer related to a candidate or campaign, etc., is a big deal. President Obama's statement is not a definitive statement of anything, other than he, personally, did not order a wiretap, which I never claimed. But that does not mean he was unaware of surveillance activity by several of his departments, even through routine reports to the president, such as the Daily Intel Briefing or information conveyed to him or his staff via the Justice Department re the FBI counter-intelligence activities. As for Clapper, despite his past dissembling before Congress, he may not have been aware of what was taking place since the FBI counter-intel operation reportedly sought the warrant. The Daily Intel Briefing might provide useful information in that regard as well.
Of course, the release of the FISA applications would also shed a lot of light on events, assuming YOU believe reports that they were filed.
Furthermore, Clapper has said, as recently as yesterday, that no connections between the Russians and the Trump campaign have been found. I am extremely critical of Russia, Putin, and the efforts to influence our election, although I do not believe they succeeded. That said, how would Clapper know of no connections if he, as former Director of National Intelligence, didn't look? On what is that based?
Your lack of curiosity and dishonesty about such matters and in dealing with me demean you and your profession. You are free to circulate this communication to whomever you wish, as I am making it public.

  1. This is confusing to follow but simplified it boils down to this:

    All the reports by the US Media about government investigations of Trump and the Russians has been contradicted by The FBI, NSA and ex- officials such as Clapper and Comey. They both claim that there never has been any wire taps on Trump or his associates as has been widely reported by all big US media.

    If you don't believe it, simply google ( the words: FISA, Trump, Russians, wiretaps, November, December, January, February and agencies.

    You will find thousands of the reports and you will find that according to "sources" investigations were taking place, investigations about Trump and the Russians. The reports say "wire taps" and surveillance

    Leaders of the Intelligence agencies, all having served under Obama, now claim there has never been an investigation.

    The Media and the Democrats have been Lying to destroy Trump. There is no other explanation.

  2. Someone is lying.

    It is not Trump.

    It is obvious that wiretaps, electronic monitoring, was being conducted against Trump and his team.

    The electronic surveillance was legal or illegal.

    If it were legal, it was court sanctioned.

    If it was not court sanctioned it was illegal.

    Someone in the Obama Administration and the Media is lying and covering up.

    There is NO other alternative explanation.

    1. If this were not true, the front pages of the Washington Post and The NY Times would have three inch headlines. Take a look.

      My, O, My.

  3. On another note: components of THAAD have arrived in South Korea.

  4. Funny stuff back there, Quirk. :)

  5. The United States has started to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system to South Korea, U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement on Tuesday.


    "Continued provocative actions by North Korea, to include yesterday's launch of multiple missiles, only confirm the prudence of our alliance decision last year to deploy THAAD to South Korea," U.S. Pacific Commander Admiral Harry Harris said in the statement.

  6. .

    Why are you guys so upset about this stuff?

    The president evidently isn't too upset. This morning on FOX, at the time Kellyanne Conway was trying to slide around a question on what evidence Trump had for his claim on the wire tap, one of the hosts handed here a cellphone with the most recent tweet from Trump (on which she was copied). It was a tweet blasting Schwarzenegger for poor ratings.

    Trump surrogates are busy stonewalling and trying to not answer questions about evidence for Trump's claim about Obama wire tapping, Republicans were trying to justify Trump's new Immigration order, GOP leadership were getting ready to outline their plans for the Obamacare replacement, and Trump's key driving need at the time was to stick it to Schwarzenegger over ratings on twitter.


    1. Meager beans there, Quirk-O.

      Not enough to sustain biological operations.

      I am sending you emergency supplements food rations UPS, ASAP.

      Use them, or slowly shut down completely.

      Can't do anything more. It's up to you now.

      I am not paying for a feeding tube, with all that includes.

    2. Love life more than death, Quirk-O, no matter what your muzzie pals tell you.

    3. And don't let yourself get suckered into Hamtramck, it's a trick.

    4. Don't overly stew over the replacement health care system.

      You can't do a thing about it one way or the other.

      Accept that, relax, most importantly, relax, and train to accept whatever comes down the runway.

      Do not go out and agitate, the exertion might kill you.

      Cut back and blogging time.

      Spend more time with the little woman, and the mutt.

      Be kind and loving to both of them.

      If you need to communicate with me it's OK, but best to try to see yourself through this, one day at a time...
