“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."
I guess Biden forgot that he called Putin, "killer".ReplyDelete
Would have loved to see Putin's face when he was told good old Joe in on the line.
Biden forgetting? You must be joking. He is a one horse pony!ReplyDelete

Great move on the Democrats forcing a cooperation between China and Russia.
Iranian vessels carrying oil and wheat supplies to Syrian ports will henceforth be escorted through the Mediterranean after exiting the Suez Canal, Iranian and Russian sources reveal.

Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki is convening an emergency meeting with the participation of the prime ministers of the Visegrad Group countries (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary) due to Russia's aggressive actions.ReplyDelete
Were Iran to attack Israel, Moscow would stand by the Jewish state’s side, a Russian official said this week, days after an Iranian-made drone infiltrated Israel from Syria and was shot down by the IDF.
“In the case of aggression against Israel, not only will the United States stand by Israel’s side — Russia, too, will be on Israel’s side,” Russian Deputy Ambassador to Israel Leonid Frolov said. “Many of our countrymen live here in Israel, and Israel in general is a friendly nation, and therefore we won’t allow any aggression against Israel.”
Russia plays all sides for Russia's own interestsDelete
And to be honest? that is to be expected
..."Israel's careful position in the US-China jostling could be at risk. At the moment, the US is Israel's greatest strategic ally and the countries share values and interests, which means that Jerusalem remains much closer to Washington than Beijing. At the same time, Israel has a robust economic relationship and a partnership in innovation with China."
JERUSALEM — A missile launched from Syria was fired into southern Israel early Thursday, setting off air raid sirens near the country's top-secret nuclear reactor, the Israeli military said. In response, it said it attacked the missile launcher and air-defense systems in neighboring Syria.
The incident, marking some of the most serious violence between Israel and Syria in years, pointed to potential Iranian involvement.
Under Trump the curtain of Chinese influence/domination was exposed.Delete

It is hard to believe that we have descended to where we are. I do not think we are at the point of no return but we are getting perilsouly close. I sure hope that the never Trumpers are pleased with their results.ReplyDelete
I think the good news is that the Left moved too far, too fast and with the right leadership we will remake the Republican Party. It is all on the Arizona audit.ReplyDelete
The dolts that voted for Biden have really made Trump look great again.
LOL - 'Trump looking great again'Delete
heh, as if he ever did.
Joe from Scranton looked in good form today. He did his version of a march out of the White House today with no one in sight. He wore his snappy aviators and a black face mask.Delete
Then, with no sign of irony, Joe announced it was now Ok to go outside without a mask.

Ash what is your opinion of the Abraham Accords?Delete
Ash any opinion of Operation Warp Speed? You know the Trump Vaccine that literally saved tens of millions of people?Delete
Ash, wasn't it great that President Trump didnt start any new wars?Delete
Ash, what was your thought about President Trump historic crime reform? His funding of historic black colleges for 10 years, his opportunity zones that helped lower black and brown unemployment to historic levels? His getting out of the Paris Accords and yet lead the USA to BEAT all proscribed goals? Was that not great?Delete
Another one of your 'great' hero's has feet of clay:ReplyDelete
And his, wife, a women right up your alley.
ash: I fail to see the connection with The GREAT President Trump's accomplishments, rather I see a pathetic attempt of Rules for Radicals. So playing by your rules? According to Planned Parenthood's 2019 Annual Report, it committed 345,672 abortions that year. But it also distributed 593,586 "emergency contraception" kits that year, So when they are filmed celebrating the sale of fetus parts and how much they would make how does that make you feel about YOUR heroes? https://www.centerformedicalprogress.org/2020/10/unsealed-sworn-testimony-shows-planned-parenthood-lied-to-congress-about-fetal-tissue-sales/Delete

Joe Biden: “We Have to do More Than Just Build Back Better. We Have to Build Back Better”
"Now the era of fear, filth and fiscal fallacy is back, but Fun City is a tired nickname. The proper sobriquet for NYC is now Sin City. As in: the Seven Deadlies. De Blasio and Andrew Cuomo have decided to go along with every-born-in-the-’90s bolshie and forge a collection of policies out of the idea that “New York was better before it got so sanitized.” "ReplyDelete
A Taste from the same article in the Post:ReplyDelete
New Yorkers have always taken pride in not suffering fools gladly, but 2020 must have been the angriest year on record. If every police killing within a 2,000-mile radius could potentially lead to days of rioting in New York, though, we seem to have reached a whole new basal level of anger. As for daily, nonpolitical rage, that’s off the charts: after a nauseating 97 percent increase in shootings last year, crime is still going up. Last week in the city, there were 50 people shot in 46 separate incidents over seven days, up from 12 shootings in the same week last year.

ummm, that is conveniently ignoring the 2 new wars Trump got us into with Iran and China.
Come on man, that's just specious.Delete
Trump Started NEW wars with Iran and China?
Have you no shame?
According to Ash, President Trump STARTED a new war with Iran and China. So Ash, what PROOF can you point to to back up your assertion?Delete

I hope we can agree that the DOJ and FBI ,raiding Rudy Giuliani's apartment, is a new low for Washington.ReplyDelete
Rudy is a genuine American Hero, and a patriot and yet these low life, jawohl FBI agents, just following orders of course , disgrace themselves and the dual sewer agencies in which they willingly serve.
I take that back. The two federal sewer agencies are deeper in the shit hole of contempt than is comprehenible to me.
Kenyatta remains the permanent stain on this late once great republic..
The DOJ and FBI are irreparable. Re-branding is not the answer. Unfortunately, both agencies serve the same master class who control DC and the master class is not leaving town.
2nd Ex-Trump Lawyer Raided By Feds As Criminal Investigation IntensifiesDelete
In addition to the Wednesday raids by federal authorities at the Manhattan home and office of ex-Trump lawyer and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, federal authorities have also raided the D.C.-area home of Victoria Toensing, a right-wing operative who — among other things — was involved in the failed Trump effort to overturn Joe Biden’s election victory. The raids on both Giuliani and Toensing were connected to an ongoing federal investigation into whether at least Giuliani broke federal law in possible advocacy on behalf of certain overseas interests.
We have to realize that short of surrender to the administrative socialist state there is only one way to fight this. There is no other answer than a militant federalism. If it is Trumpism without Trump, that is ok with me. It is probably necessary.ReplyDelete
