“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."

Don't Expect Candor from James Comey - It's Not in His DNA

Comey Is More Of A Politician Than Investigator. His Actions, Meddling in The International Political Affairs of The US President, Was a Political Interference With Grave Geo-Political Consequences 

Think Not, View On:


  1. Trump had a right and a duty to fire this political bomb thrower. Watching him hoisted with his own petard would be justice in action.

  2. Why would anyone hire this too tall galoot?

  3. Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz says he is going to have a conversation with former FBI Director James Comey Monday.


    Chaffetz went on to say it is important to remember that the memos reportedly written by Comey relating to his conversations with Donald Trump haven’t been made available to lawmakers or even to some reporters who have covered the story.

    “So there’s been an awful lot written and said about it, but I don’t even know that the Department of Justice has [the documents]. Maybe Director Comey has them.

    1. Maybe he hasn't written, and back dated, them yet.

      Maybe he's worried The Donald has tapes.

      But I did rip off the bank for $7500 hundred dollars, when I was on my knees, and fighting for my economic life, on my aunt's credit card. But that wasn't really stealing, just payback.

  5. Comey declined to be interviewed in private session with Congress, as he would have to answer all questions.

    In public however he can weasel out by claiming he can't speak about certain matters due to security concerns, etc.

    1. Nevertheless the questioning should be interesting.

  6. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), the U.S. House Oversight Committee chairman, said on Sunday he plans on having a private talk with former FBI Director James Comey on Monday. The two will discuss numerous issues, including the claim allegedly made by an associate of Comey’s to the New York Times earlier this week that President Donald Trump once told Comey he’d like to see the investigation into Gen. Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser, dropped.


    So far, no evidence of collusion has been found, but multiple scandals have erupted related to the decision, the most recent of which being a report in the New York Times on Friday suggesting Trump told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that Comey is “crazy, a real nut job.” Trump also reportedly told Lavrov and Kislyak that removing Comey has “taken off” “great pressure.”

  7. I've been reading that Lavrov is a true thug with plenty of blood on his hands.

    He had no business in the White House.

    1. Mr Trump invited him, birds of a feather, they flock together, at the People's House.

  8. Mr. McCain was more direct in his criticism.

    “America is the unique nation in history, with all of our errors and failings and mistakes we’ve made. … We have stood up for people,” he told Fox News. “We have to stand up for what we believe in, or we’re no different.”
    Pressed on the human rights concerns, Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson suggested that the administration is taking a more nuanced approach. He said the president has “learned a lot” about the Middle East and its culture during his trip and argued that defeating the Islamic State group is the key to improving human rights in the region.
    “I think the way you address those human rights issues and women’s rights issues is to improve conditions in the region,” he told Fox News on Sunday.


  9. In a departure from the campaign trail, Trump didn't say 'radical Islamic terrorism' in his speech to the Muslim world

    President Donald Trump gave a highly-anticipated address to Arab and Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia during his first trip abroad on Sunday. One phrase candidate Trump repeated countlessly on the campaign trail was missing: "radical Islamic terrorism."

    Trump stressed the need to build a coalition to address a "crisis of Islamic extremism," but neglected to use the charged keystone of his campaign trail rhetoric in his speech to 50 Middle Eastern leaders.

    Before his victory and after taking office, Trump repeatedly bashed former President Barack Obama and then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for not using the phrase.


    1. As a candidate, Trump argued that Obama's insistence not to use the term to refer to terrorist attacks committed in the name of groups like the Islamic State or Al Qaeda showed he wasn't well-equipped to fight terrorism.

      Mr Trump has shown, through his actions, that he is not equipped to fight terrorism.

      He is having the US arm Islamic terrorists, in the Middle East.

    2. Mr Trump is arming those that financed the 11SEP2001 terrorist attack upon the US
      He is following the Obama playbook.

      Proof positive that Mr Trump is not equipped to fight terrorism, he is having the US provide material support for terrorists, all across the Middle East.

      Going beyond what Mr Obama did, in support of those supporting the Islamic State, by bombing those in the front lines in the fight against Islamic terrorism.

      May 18, 2017
      BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition bombed the Syrian Arab Army's (SAA) positions in eastern Al-Sweida, today, the Pentagon ...

      So sad that the US, under Mr Trump's authority, is actually supporting Islamic terrorists with its military might.

      So, so sad for Robert "Draft Dodger" Peterson and Doug, to have the man they support supporting Islamic terrorists.

      Mr Trump would not even say the words "Radical Islamic Terror" to the Muslims, he was so intimidated by them.

  10. Rat is right, damn

    The use of the Islamic State as a pawn against the Syrian government should come as no surprise and is hardly a “conspiracy theory.” The US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) itself in 2012 would publish a memo (PDF) detailing specifically what a prescribed “Salafist” (Islamic) “principality” (State) would be used for by the US and its allies:

    If the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).

    The DIA memo then explains exactly who the supporters powers are – as well as who the principality’s enemies would be:

    The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.

    America’s strategy in Syria is an admittedly more drawn out process than was used against Afghanistan in 2001, Iraq in 2003, and Libya in 2011. All three nations are now destabilized and virtual breeding grounds for terrorism, conflict, instability, and human catastrophe – cautionary examples of Syria’s fate should US foreign policy “succeed” there as well.

    With the recent strike, the US proves that it will continue its illegal, unwarranted aggression in Syria until it either topples the Syrian government and succeeds in transforming the nation into yet another failed state amid its growing collection of global military interventions, or until the US is stopped by sufficient deterrence by Syria and its allies in Moscow and Tehran.

    Trump IS supporting the Islamic terrorists, damn it.
