Andrew Breitbart was a Jew. That makes Miller's opponents twice as stupid. Look at what they call David Horowitz. He was a son raised by two commies and later worked for the Black Panthers. After they murdered a woman who was their accountant he said that's all folks. And he became a conservative and a fearless one as well. He is called a anti-semite and a racist etc. He was a partner with Peter Collier who lived here for many years. The left has called Candace Ownes a racist. She is black.

Re anti-semitism and racism. We should always understand that these notions are mindsets, and not something inherent in your DNA. Jews can also be anti-semitic, and black people can be racists - examples of both abound.

Steve Miller, the necessity of the deep state and so much more. VDH.

The Era of ‘Good’ Fascism?

“If and when fascism comes to America, it will not arrive with jackboots, stiff arms, and military uniforms. The attempt to suppress political opposition in anti-constitutional fashion, to regiment the economy by denying constitutionally protected freedoms, and the efforts to change the Constitution to reflect political utility, will come under the auspices of “equality,” “fairness,” “saving the planet,” and “social justice”—as a way to combat “climate change,” “racism,” “homophobia,” and “sexism.”

Civil Liberty Abuse by Liberals? No Problem!

BillT 1000am - Mr Tozer, you beat me to it again. So many things to write about, so little time. This VDH piece will be a classic, mainly because it will outrage the command/control progressives who are and have always held near and dear to their hearts the principles of fascistic governance.

Bill Tozer

Dr. Rebane, sir.
“So many things to write about, so little time.”

Quite true. I could write essays of the topic of why American Jews vote left, with the exception of Orthodox Jews (minority of American Jews) who vote conservative. The writings of Jewish thinkers is unparalleled, from philosophy to conservative values.

The persecution of Christians? It has to be 20-30 years ago that I was very interested in the topic. The persecution of Christians was in full swing in various places throughout the world, Horrible events reported, massive amounts of slaughter. The cries for help reached the heavens. ****What always stuck from that period was that despite all their efforts of petition Amnesty International in Norway with facts, Amnesty Int’l refused to recognize Christians as a persecuted group. Refused.
3 years ago, our local Lefties & Company went ballistic over the thought of letting Syrian Christians in during the Muslim Ban, aka, the extreme vetting from 8 counties, one including North Korea, lol. Christians are the one group that are not protected, even in Syria.

American liberty depends on the Deep State? Well, look at the bright side. At least they now recognize the Deep State after eviscerating us conspiracy theorists and, By Golly, the Deep State is good because it protects us and our Constitution by keeping us safe from THEIR enemies.

Oh, until I learn brievity, I will keep those essays in my mind. :) some many words, so little time.

Dr Rebane zeros in on the big problem:

“This VDH piece will be a classic, mainly because it will outrage the command/control progressives who are and have always held near and dear to their hearts the principles of fascistic governance.”

Eveything else pales in comparison, sir.

re: The Deep State.

It strikes me as being too large to get a handle on, but you can certainly pick up a flavor by looking at individuals.

A quick homework assignment for anyone who is interested. Spend a few minutes looking into the career of Robert Mueller. Go back in time and check out some of the cases and their results.

Just sayin' -

There’s no completely objective way to measure legal ability, but a common metric used by legal employers to identify the most gifted lawyers is whether those lawyers secured a federal clerkship, including the most prestigious clerkships at the Supreme Court. Approximately 40 percent of Trump’s appellate nominees clerked for a Supreme Court justice, and about 80 percent clerked on a federal court of appeals.

That compares to less than a quarter of Obama’s nominees who clerked on the Supreme Court, and less than half with a federal appellate clerkship.

In other words, based solely on objective legal credentials, the average Trump appointee has a far more impressive résumé than any past president’s nominees.

And they’re young, too. “The average age of circuit judges appointed by President Trump is less than 50 years old,” the Trump White House bragged in early November, “a full 10 years younger than the average age of President Obama’s circuit nominees.”

A Matter of Truth

“Here the question is not whether Rowling and Gervais are right, though most people would think that they are right, albeit that they would also increasingly fear to acknowledge it in public (a mark of creeping totalitarianism, incidentally). The question is, rather, whether they had the right to say what they did as part of the normal give and take of public debate. The reaction to what they said—the veteran feminist, Germain Greer, was another object of such aggressive recrimination for having said something similar—suggests that pressure groups’ attachment to freedom of speech is very weak. They prefer issuing fatwas.”
..
“Increasingly in our times, social ideas seem to go through analogous, but different, stages. First, they are too absurd to be entertained; then they are promoted and propagandized; finally, they are made obligatory articles of faith. The cycle seems to have a built-in accelerator. But it remains true, as Bishop Butler had it, that “everything is what it is and not another thing.”

"Boeing’s grounded 737MAX may be the final instigation for the long-talked of conversion to take human pilots out of cockpits"

Not a chance that the failure of cockpit automation would be the start of surrendering all to the same automation and removing the pilots altogether.

"What's it doing now?" was once a signal to disconnect Otto and hand fly the plane. It should probably always be so, but it will require an industry to hire pilots able to do just that, and give them enough time at the controls to keep current.

Southwest did. Ethiopian and Lion Air didn't.

That said, the MAX seems to be a creature of the regulatory regime, as Boeing didn't want the profit dragging recertification headache of treating the MAX as something other than a 737 when the new engines were designed in.

Report: More Than A Thousand Christians Have Been Killed This Year In Nigeria

"Although the massacres are significant, HART does say they’ve been largely ignored by the international community and that addressing the issue has become necessary, if not urgent."

UN, UK Treating Persecuted Christians as "Enemies"

“The next obstacle facing those few Christians who make it past UN refugee camps are the immigration centers of Western nations themselves. The discrimination is apparently so obvious in the United Kingdom that Lord George Carey, a former Archbishop of Canterbury, is suing the UK Home Office for allegedly being "institutionally biased" against Christian refugees and therefore complicit in what he calls "the steady crucifixion of Middle East Christians."
