“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."

Hillary Spent $1.2 Billion Losing To Donald Trump - She Was Rebuked - She Does Not Need A Pause And Reflect - She Needs To Disappear

Why Isn’t Hillary Clinton in Jail?

She feels safe enough to “come out of the woods,” exactly the time for a Trump administration special prosecutor to launch a broadside.

Mentally strong people don’t need five months to overcome setbacks. Thomas Edison famously said: “I have not failed 10,000 times. … I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work.” Instead of dwelling on setbacks, true leaders are resilient and persistent. Their passion for their mission—or goal—is independent of external circumstances.

On the campaign trail, Trump promised supporters he would “lock her up” for what he considered to be criminal activity. He even told Clinton to her face: “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation. Because there have never been so many lies, so much deception.” If he were president, he added: “You’d be in jail.”

I realize the Trump and Clinton families have a history of amity, including the public friendship of Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka and Hillary’s daughter Chelsea. Which may explain why Trump has withdrawn his campaign promise to prosecute her, telling New York Times reporters she already “suffered greatly.”
Hear me out: The most loving act President Trump can do for Clinton is give her the professional and institutional help that will uphold justice—and prevent her from further hurting herself or others.

Borderline Personality Disorder

Nearly nine in 10 Americans did not find Hillary to be “honest and trustworthy” going into the 2016 presidential election. While we can’t assess Clinton’s mental state, we do know that uncontrollable lying (mythomania) is common among individuals suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD).

Individuals with BPD may also sustain romantic relationships solely for utility (think Hillary’s choice to cling to an unloving and unfaithful man in order to climb the political ladder). Another BPD trait can be difficulty with interpersonal relationships (think WikiLeaks revelations that Clinton staffers advised her to develop a sense of humor and learn to smile).

President Trump will keep his campaign promise—while still doing right by Chelsea—if he helps Hillary get the mental help she needs in an appropriate establishment. Meanwhile, Clinton will do propitiation for her unlawful deeds that endangered our country’s national security and President Trump will send the message that no one is above the law in America.

The Woman Who Sold 20% of U.S. Uranium to Russia

Ever heard of the Uranium One deal? If not, don’t beat yourself up. It’s not like the media let you know about it.

It’s amazing to see President Trump get pummeled by the press for alleged conversations with Russia about alleged inappropriate topics when we know—for sure—that, as Secretary of State, Clinton brokered a deal on behalf of the Obama administration that released control of at least 20%, and up to 50%, of American uranium production to the Kremlin.

Wyoming was home to one of Uranium One’s biggest uranium mine holdings. Clinton’s deal, negotiated via the Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States, ensured that Wyoming uranium is now being exported and Uranium One changed from a public company to a private corporation in which Russian President Vladimir Putin’s company ARMZ owns 100% of the stock.

Uranium, when enriched, can be used to create nuclear weapons. It also can be used to power atomic energy plants. No worries.

Inventory Count

Hillary is innocent until proven guilty. That said, President Trump could fill a warehouse with files of evidence on her misdeeds for which he would be warranted in enlisting the aid of a special prosecutor.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions agreed to recuse himself from any Clinton-related probes. But Sessions could appoint someone else to investigate Clinton for these reasons:

Email Scandal: Why did she use a private, non-secure email address and server to send and receive classified information while Secretary of State? Why do WikiLeaks emails indicate that Hillary’s husband, Bill Clinton, colluded with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the results of the DOJ’s probe into her private server use when they met on June 29, 2016?

Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi Terror Attack: Why did Clinton mislead Americans as to the cause of American death? (She blamed an obscure online video, even though virtually no one in Libya—or anywhere in the world—watched the video.) Why was she unprepared for and unhelpful during the attack? What role may her proposal to smuggle arms to Syrian rebels have had in this attack?

Uranium One: Why did Clinton broker a deal that gave the Kremlin ownership of 20-to-50% of American uranium production, while the Clintons and Clinton Foundation purportedly profited to the tune of $130 million?

Campaign Crookedness: What was Clinton’s role in fixing the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination in her favor over Sen. Bernie Sanders? Why did she receive help from CNN commentator Donna Brazile on presidential debate questions?

Whitewater: What really happened in the Whitewater scandal?
And that’s not even a complete list of Hillary’s alleged crimes. Bottom line, President Trump should pursue his campaign promise to investigate Hillary. He may feel she’s suffered greatly, but the American people have suffered far more. Besides, she appears to need serious psychological aid. She will only hurt herself and others by “coming out of the woods” to resume her old ways.

Who knows, Hillary Clinton might look great in orange pantsuits.


  1. I am puzzled how anyone could have voted in any way that would have elected the sociopathic Clinton. Fortunately, she was defeated, mostly by herself.

    We are hearing daily from the Clintonites about the disaster that Trump could be. Hardly a word about the disaster that was Clinton.

    Bill Clinton used non-necessary wars in Africa, Iraq and even in Europe to divert, distract, save and enhance his political career.

    Hillary Clinton was an absolute disaster as SOS. She was the Calamity Jane of The US State Department.

    Hillary Clinton has brought political incompetence, ineptness and chicanery to a science in her 14,235 days of political experience.

    Hillary Clinton's first 14,235 days in politics, her contribution and participation in US politics, have resulted in the death, injury and homelessness of over ten million human beings and the loss of trillions.

    Hillary will get better. She is very intelligent but requires a few more months to get it right.

    The Trump detractors have a very clear picture and opinion of the disastrous 75 days of Trump's experience in office.

    If you have not heard specifics about Trump's failures over the past 75 days, pay it no mind, the Clintonites may treat us to their opinions of the accomplishments of HRC in her first 14,235 days.

  2. TIME MACHINE - STAR DATE - April 28, 2009, at 10:30 a.m:

    Bonnie Erbe, Thomas Jefferson Street blog.

    Call me a cynic (you can't beat me to it, I've already claimed the mantle), but too much is being made about President Obama's first hundred days in office.

    There is much more media hype, for example, than I remember being made about President George W. Bush's first hundred, or Clinton's before that, or H.W. Bush's before that. Can't we just let history happen before we report it to death, determine its meaning 10,000 years from now, compare its impact to similar historical events and move along to overexposing the next media event?

    The fact is we don't yet know if President Obama's administration is a success or failure. And we won't know until: A--he is tested by time; B--his economic stimulus bill kicks in and either pulls the economy out of the doldrums or creates hyperinflation and sends the economy zooming off to parts unknown; or C--none of the above.

    Oh, yes, I do happen to know that President Obama is our first president of color. And that magnifies the importance of all else about him. But I would really like to try to get to know the man before the media pummel me to death with what I should think of him.

    On the one hand, I feel sorry for him. He's being bashed by disappointed anti-poverty, anti-racism groups who believe he hasn't done enough to stem poverty or racism. He's being simultaneously ripped by Righties who want him to kowtow to their concerns. He can't win for losing, and perhaps that's precisely where he wants to be.

    In the past day alone, he's been slashed, figuratively speaking, by groups who should be his most fervent devotees. The first laceration was delivered for the U.S.'s refusal to attend a United Nations Conference on Racism in Geneva. One attendee, the chair of the National Slave Route Commemoration Committee of Suriname (whatever that is), Ilse Vregaud, told

    "He's a man for change and this conference is about change," Vregaud said. "This is the place for him to be. I'm sure he has good reasons, but he has to explain to the world—and especially to African descended people in the United States and around the world—why he himself is not here. I think he owes us that."

    Wow, dial it down a bit, don't you think? Closer to home, in fact in his hometown and in the very community where he launched his career as a community organizer (Roseland in Chicago), formerly kindred spirits seem no happier with his presidency than they were with that of his predecessor. Some told the Chicago Sun-Times the president gets a "failing grade" for his lack of focus on inner-city issues:

    "Some of us who worked with him from the beginning of his career through the presidency are not satisfied," said community activist Mark Allen. "Some of these streets are worse than they were when he walked down these streets.

  3. ...Still, Trump must be destroyed, or as my old friend Cato the Elder would say, Carthago delenda est .

  4. Trump is not throwing out the first pitch at the baseball series.

    How can anyone defend that ?

    And he used to play baseball, too, and was pretty good.

    He says he has a 'conflict of interest'.

    Go on the attack, Ash.

    There is nothing more important than an old man throwing out a wobbly first pitch at the series.

    It is Un-American not to do so !

    He must be working for Pooty, or Xi !

    1. My solution ?

      Put Melania on the mound !!!

      The Pitch Watched Round The World !

    2. President Trump won't throw Opening Day pitch due to scheduling conflict
      Mar 30, 2017

      Because of a scheduling conflict, President Donald Trump will not throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day for the Washington Nationals....

      Some President.

      Scheduling conflict, my ass.

      He can golf, but not work in one little pitch.

      Impeachment is in order.

    3. Whole thing, the very thought of it, pitches me off.

      Only Melania can save the day !

  5. Julian Assange has “cordially” invited the losing presidential candidate to “leave Ecuador within 30 days” using similar language as Guillermo Lasso, who promised to expel the WikiLeaks founder from the Ecuadorean embassy in London should he win.

    In the run-up to Ecuador’s presidential elections, conservative candidate Lasso promised that he “will cordially ask Senor Assange to leave” within 30 days of assuming office, should he be elected. The pro-business candidate said the country’s London embassy “isn’t a hotel” and that Ecuador is in no position to finance the Australian’s stay there.

    In a cheeky response on Sunday – after preliminary results in the second round of Ecuador’s presidential election showed that Lasso is poised to lose – the WikiLeaks founder responded using the same language.

  6. I instinctively hate anyone with the name Guillermo.

    BTW Guillermo lost.

  7. It is a disgusting name, right up there with Umberto.

    How would you like if your brother-in-law were Umberto Guillermo ? Or Guillermo Umberto ?

    It wouldn't be long before the relationship were broken, if it had ever formed.

      Bob, ex-hick, faux farmer, English major, landlord, Trumpette, bigot, doesn't like his name.


    2. You yourself said he was a fucking idiot unmeaning postmodernist.

      I rest my case.

    3. Or, rather, your case.

      Whodunnit in St Pete, Quirk ?

      You got a clue ?

      A Trumpist American Fascist, perhaps ?

      He's a screwball, and is rooting for Gonzaga *

    5. Or anything written for Quirk either.

    6. You can believe stuff written about Quirk by me.

      Two nail bombs on the metro in St Petersburg ripped through train carriages killing at least 10 people today.

      The incident occurred at two separate locations including Sennaya Ploshchad train station leaving at least 50 injured including children.

      Vladimir Putin is in his hometown of St Petersburg today for talks with the president of Belarus and has confirmed 'there are dead and injured' and offered his condolences to the families of those killed....

      Looks like lousy Russian infrastructure can be ruled out.
