“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."

  4. Kurt Schlichter
    Why Democrats Would Lose the Second Civil War, Too

    It’s obvious that the central tenet of the Democrat Party platform is now hatred and contempt for Normal Americans. Taking their cue from the elites in Europe and Canada who are stripping dissenters of their free speech rights and religious freedoms, the leftist elite is moving to solidify its hold on power here with the eager assistance of tech companies and the moral support of the Fredocons who yearn to return to pseudo-relevance as the ruling class’s slobberingly loyal opposition. In California, the leftist government is practically firing on Fort Sumter. And nationally, these aspiring fascists are especially eager to disarm Normal Americans – doing so would be an object lesson in who’s the boss, as well as solving that frustrating problem of the Normals having the ability to resist.

    Probably because I’ve spent time where they actually had a civil war, many people ask me – people whose names you know – whether I think this turmoil will all end in a Second Civil War. They are seriously concerned, and not without cause – the left’s hatred for Normal Americans and its dedication to totally stripping the people who are the backbone of this country of their ability to participate in their own governance is threatening to rip the country apart.

    Do I think there will be a civil war? No, but there could be. This is the Age of Black Swans, and anything is possible – we could easily see the country split into red and blue. Civil war is unlikely, but never underestimate Democrat stupidity and hatred. The Schlichter family learned that lesson a century and half ago, the last time the Democrats decided to try to impose their hatred of basic human rights on the rest of the country, when an army of Democrats burned our family hometown.

    Oh, they paid for it. And they would pay again. Democrats are 0-1 in insurrections, and if they went for another round, they would be 0-2. It’s a matter of terrain, numbers, and morale.

    Democrats, who think history began when Obama was elected, don’t understand the dangerous game they are playing when they talk about how they want to impose their brown shirt vision upon red America. The keyboard commandos of the left seek to hand wave away the massive strategic challenge of imposing control by force upon a well-armed, decentralized citizenry occupying the vast majority of the territory, so they babble about drones and tanks as counterinsurgency trump cards. But there are no trump cards in war. There are men, with rifles, standing on patches of dirt, killing the people trying to push them off. That’s the ugly reality of war. And multiply the usual brutality of war by ten when it’s a civil war.

    There are two Civil War II scenarios, and the left is poorly positioned to prevail in either one. The first scenario is....

  5. Whisper It, But Maybe Trump Isn’t That Bad After All

    Stock market up, unemployment down. After plateauing for much of 2015 and 2016, numbers of manufacturing jobs have been on the rise since Trump’s inauguration. While Trump has perhaps taken more credit than he’s due in these areas, it would be ignorant to deny him at least some – business confidence has steadily grown under Trump’s presidency, a direct effect of tax cuts; the most comprehensive simplification of the US tax code in 30 years; and a staunch refusal to regulate the economy to the same extent as during Obama’s tenure. Through 2016-2018, regulations have grown by only 0.6 per cent, in comparison to the 1.6 per cent per annum under Obama…

    On foreign policy, he’s been brash and unpredictable, but successful. He can’t take full credit for the defeat of Isis in their traditional strongholds, but they have been defeated. He can’t take full credit for defusing tensions with North Korea – but under President Trump, Kim Jong-un is becoming more receptive to talks with South Korea, and even sent a team to the Winter Olympics. His “quirky” style of diplomacy has led to, in the past few days, talk on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and the closest thing to a peaceful North Korea we’ve seen in years. On Friday it was even announced that Trump will be meeting with Kim Jong-un.

  6. No Longer A normal School *

    A student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania was barred from class, forced to apologize and given an academic referral for disputing “the reality of white male privilege.”

    Lake Ingle said students in his Feb. 28 religious studies class watched a TED Talk by transgender woman Paula Stone Williams. He said only women were allowed to participate in a subsequent discussion.

    “The floor was opened, and not a single woman spoke,” Mr. Ingletold Campus Reform. “Thirty seconds or so passed and still no woman had spoken. So, I decided it was permissible for me to enter conversation, especially because I felt the conversation itself was completely inappropriate in its structure.”

    Mr. Ingle said he disputed several claims in the video, arguing there are only two biological sexes and that the gender wage gap is a myth.
    The next day, Mr. Ingle met with his instructor, religious studies professor Alison Downie, who presented him with an academic referral for “objecting to the professor’s class discussion structure,” refusing to “stop talking out of turn,” making “angry outbursts in response to being required to listen to a trans speaker discuss the reality of white male privilege and sexism,” and referring disrespectfully to “the validity of trans identity and experience.”

    * Indiana University of Pennsylvania is a public institution that was founded in 1875. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 10,618, its setting is rural, and the campus size is 374 acres. ... IUP's feathered mascot goes by the name Norm, which is a reference to the school's original name – Indiana State Normal School.

    10% of discretionary income from someone with a degree from a school obsessed with “stop talking out of turn,” making “angry outbursts in response to being required to listen to a trans speaker discuss the reality of white male privilege and sexism,” and referring disrespectfully to “the validity of trans identity and experience.”

    is probably something shy of $25 per month.

  12. Another “UFO” Video, And A Former DoD Officials Asks Why The Pentagon Doesn’t Care
    JAZZ SHAWPosted at 6:41 pm on March 12, 2018

    Back around Christmas time, we looked at some of the initial videos of “unknown aircraft” released by the government after they revealed a secret program which had been monitoring unidentified aerial threats. (Let’s face it… they’re talking about UFOs, whether they’re something cooked up by one of our black ops projects or somebody from another planet.) After that news came out, I couldn’t help but notice that there was a brief period where people were talking about it, but then it just sort of went away.

    Well, another video has been released. This one was taken off the east coast of the United States in 2015 by some F-18 Hornet pilots. And with its release, Christopher Mellon is asking some of the same questions I’ve had in an op-ed at the Washington Post. But unlike me, this guy has a bit firmer background in this area. He’s a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for intelligence in both the Clinton and Bush 43 administrations. These days he serves an adviser to the To the Stars Academy for Arts and Science which we’ve discussed here before and he’s working with a number of other government and military personnel who are looking for answers.

    Before we get to Mellon’s thoughts on this, let’s look at the latest video. It sets up with some background information on what it is you’re seeing in this footage shot from the weapons control systems of an F-18. You hear the voices of several pilots who are, somewhat shockingly, laughing as they try to figure out what the heck it is they’re tracking. It allegedly dropped down from more than 60K feet at supersonic speed, stopped about fifty feet over the ocean and took off. Much like the video from last December, the Super Hornets were unable to catch it. Oh… and it doesn’t have wings.


    Nobody is sure what these things are, but as I said above, Mellon has questions.

    1. Is it possible that America has been technologically leap-frogged by Russia or China? Or, as many people wondered after the videos were first published by the New York Times in December, might they be evidence of some alien civilization?

      Unfortunately, we have no idea, because we aren’t even seeking answers.

      I served as deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence for the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations and as staff director for the Senate Intelligence Committee, and I know from numerous discussions with Pentagon officials over the past two years that military departments and agencies treat such incidents as isolated events rather than as part of a pattern requiring serious attention and investigation. A colleague of mine at To the Stars Academy, Luis Elizondo, used to run a Pentagon intelligence program that examined evidence of “anomalous” aircraft, but he resigned last fall to protest government inattention to the growing body of empirical data.

      Mellon is expressing the frustration of a lot of people in the military and the intelligence community. You don’t have to believe in anything crazy or have any sort of opinion at all. But the government has a pile of information and nobody is compiling it across agencies and departments to try to get a handle on it. Everything is being treated like a one-off incident and if our government has any answers, they’re not telling anyone.

      Mellon has a theory as to why it’s not being pursued more vigorously. Nobody wants to be “the alien guy” in the national security bureaucracy. That’s traditionally been a great way to end your career quickly. But somebody needs to at least be asking the questions, don’t they? If you don’t want to think it’s extraterrestrials, that’s fine. I’m not even sure I believe that. But these aren’t pictures of swamp gas or weather balloons. If this is something that the Russians or the Chinese cooked up, we’ve probably got a very serious problem if we have nothing even remotely close to that sort of capability. I suppose the more comforting theory is that it’s actually one of ours but it’s so classified they can’t admit it. But if that’s the case, why release these videos?

      Whether it’s ours, Putin’s or somebody from the Pleiades system, wouldn’t our government want to know? And if that technology is real and actually capable of doing anything close to what these videos seem to indicate, wouldn’t we want to get hold of it or figure out how to develop it ourselves?

      Good questions. I’d love to hear some answers.

      Quirk, enough of this now. Come clean, and admit it's you on your Super Sea Skimmer.

      People are beginning to worry.

  15. UFOs have been reported by the Navy and other branches of the military for decades.

    Despite numerous reports, the military has not put any significant or serious effort into finding out specific explanations for UFO incidents.


    "This is a f------ drone bro," one pilot says. "There's a whole fleet of them.

    Look on the S.A." the other responds.


    There is reportedly a negative stigma associated with anyone who pursues the idea that the UFOs are extraterrestrial life visiting earth and believers tend to attribute the slow progress on identifying the aircraft on lack of interest from superiors.

    3. Essential Trump aide given the unceremonial boot -

      President Trump's personal aide fired, escorted from White House without getting coat

      John McEntee (l.), personal aide to President Trump, was fired Monday. (CHIP SOMODEVILLA)
      Updated: Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 12:01 PM

      President Trump’s personal assistant was let go on Monday — escorted from the White House without being allowed to get his coat, according to reports.

      John McEntee was fired because he is being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, CNN noted.

      But the faithful Trump aide didn't go far as he was immediately hired by the President’s reelection campaign team.

      McEntee indicated to colleagues that there was an issue in his background that may have prevented him from gaining full security clearance and led to his dismissal, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

      McEntee worked with Trump from the earliest days of his presidential bid, joining the Trump team in 2015.

      His exit comes two weeks after White House communications director Hope Hicks, also a long-serving staffer, stepped down.

      McEntee managed to keep a low profile in a campaign and White House often embroiled in controversy.

      The 27-year-old former University of Connecticut quarterback is more widely known for a viral YouTube trick throw video than his work with Trump.

      But inside the West Wing, McEntee was a common presence, serving as Trump’s body man.

      He made sure Trump had markers with him while travelling in order to sign autographs, delivered messages to him while at the White House and even set clocks during daylight savings time, according to the Journal.

    4. "A President without his markers is a unwound clock."

    5. Your campaign for President, Quirk, didn't go anywhere, in part because you never had your markers, and, never knew what time it was.

    6. .

      Rumor has it the guy couldn't steam Trumps pleats right, certainly not in the same class as Hope Hicks.

      Body man? My god, what a poof.


  22. Trump surrounds himself with yes men.

    Prince Reibus, interviewed extensively just yesterday by Laura Ingraham, went on at length saying just the opposite.

    The Prince said The Donald wants opposing points of view expressed, all sides to give their own opinion.

    Then The Donald thoughtfully makes the decision, usually relying on his gut feeling, or instinct.

    Who to believe about The Donald - The Prince or The Quirk ?

    1. .

      The Prince said The Donald wants opposing points of view expressed, all sides to give their own opinion.

      The Quirk calls bullshit. Trump says that all the time. The facts say different.


    2. It would be a royal pain in the ass to work in the Trump administration. Trump flip flops so often and proclaims on the spur of the moment radical decisions that it would make trying to guide a branch of the government near impossible.

  23. I told The Donald early on I wasn't going to work for him unless I had the job security of a Middle Ages serf.

    He was not able to agree to this, he replied.

    1. President Trump has wanted Mike Pompeo as his secretary of state for months now — and the White House began planning for him to take this job last fall.

      Trump’s anger at Tillerson after it leaked that he called him “a moron” never subsided, and many in the White House saw their differences as irreconcilable. …

      Sources close to the President say it was clear Tillerson didn’t support Trump. They say Tillerson wanted to handle foreign policy his own way, without the President. Trump didn’t feel that Tillerson backed him, source says.


  24. By one count there have been 23 firings/departures from Team Trump so far.

    If one chooses to work for Trump one ought to be certain one has a fall back position.

  25. Gina Haspel, C.I.A. Deputy Director, Had Leading Role in Torture
    Gina Haspel in October 2017.Creditvia YouTube
    By Matthew Rosenberg

    Feb. 2, 2017
    Updated March 13, 2018: President Trump announced that he had ousted Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson and intended to replace him with Mike Pompeo, now the C.I.A. director.

    Mr. Trump also named Gina Haspel as his choice to become the next C.I.A. director.

    WASHINGTON — As a clandestine officer at the Central Intelligence Agency in 2002, Gina Haspel oversaw the torture of two terrorism suspects and later took part in an order to destroy videotapes documenting their brutal interrogations at a secret prison in Thailand.

    On Thursday, Ms. Haspel was named the deputy director of the C.I.A.

    The elevation of Ms. Haspel, a veteran widely respected among her colleagues, to the No. 2 job at the C.I.A. was a rare public signal of how, under the Trump administration, the agency is being led by officials who appear to take a far kinder view of one of its darker chapters than their immediate predecessors.

    Over the past eight years, C.I.A. leaders defended dozens of agency personnel who had taken part in the now-banned torture program, even as they vowed never to resume the same harsh interrogation methods. But President Trump has said repeatedly that he thinks torture works. And the new C.I.A. chief, Mike Pompeo, has said that waterboarding and other techniques do not even constitute torture, and praised as “patriots” those who used such methods in the early days of the fight against Al Qaeda....

    From Colombia, a huge middle finger to FARC Marxist terrorists and that phony 'peace' deal
    By Monica Showalter

    Here's something we learn from Colombia: no one, and I mean no one, likes left-wing thugs, the creeps who prance around in Che t-shirts, get government bennies, and literally get away with murder.

    That's the result of an election held there over the weekend, where FARC Marxist narco-terrorists got next to nothing in the vaunted "peace process" elections, in the culmination of the oh, so globally vaunted peace process that got Colombia's appeasionist president, Juan Manuel Santos, the Nobel Peace Prize. Seeing FARC's Marxist narco-terrorists on the ballot with ten free seats in Congress, the final word was that voters just wouldn't vote for them.

    That was the verdict from Sunday's election in Colombia, with FARC taking home a grand total of...0.21% of the vote in the Colombian House and 0.34% of the vote in the Colombian Senate, rendering them a rounding error.

    It was lower than even so-called Colombia experts had predicted (neighborhood of 5%) to the press, and far lower than what Northern Ireland's detested Irish Republican Army terrorists took home from their own peace-with-impunity deal, brokered by Bill Clinton in the 1990s.

    So for all the left's romance about guerrillas out there, all the Che t-shirts, and all the left's love for "peace processes" that reward terrorists, Colombians had other ideas.

    Seriously, they really rejected these left-wing thugs. And it's not as if these voters hadn't tried to tell their government this earlier....

  27. A FORMER KGB agent accused of poisoning Russian defector Alexander Litvinenk has tonight been linked to a Russian businessman found dead in London.

    Russian airline mogul Nikolai Glushkov, 68, was found with "strangulation marks" at his home in New Malden, where he lived away from prying eyes, just before 11pm last night.


    What we know so far:

    * Anti-Putin Russian mogul Nikolai Glushkov was found dead with 'strangulation marks' at around 10.46pm last night

    * Met Police confirmed the 68-year-old's death at his home in New Malden, South West London is being treated as 'unexplained'.

    * Glushkov was a close friend of Putin critic Boris Berezovsky, who was discovered dead in 2013 in an apparent suicide.


    Nikolai Glushkov was once one of the most powerful businessmen in Russia and instrumental in Vladimir Putin's rise to power before falling foul of the regime.

    The 68-year-old former deputy director of Russian state airline Aeroflot spent five years in jail due to money laundering and fraud.


    GLUSHKOV ON PUTIN'S RUSSIA: In his own words

    On Berezovsky in 2013: "You have the deaths of Boris and Badri over a short period of time. Too many bodies are happening. I would say this is a little bit too much."

    On Berezovsky suicide theory: "Boris was strangled. Either he did it himself or with the help of someone. [But] I don't believe it was suicide."
