Back to the Future: Censorship


By Chris Edwards

Not long after the limited-government U.S. Constitution was ratified and the new government resumed operation, numerous political leaders began pushing to expand federal power. Leading politicians of the 1790s did not agree with each other about the proper scope of federal authority, either legally or practically.
Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton proposed ideas for top-down manipulation of the economy. And fellow Federalist President John Adams signed into law the infamous Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798, which among other things outlawed any “false, scandalous and malicious writing” against the government, the Congress, and the president.
An article in the Washington Post the other day discussed some interesting details regarding the enforcement of the sedition statute:

This bitter and harsh editorial, which portrays the president as dangerous to the health of the republic and his White House as slouching toward dysfunctionality, has understandably infuriated him.

Trump first accused the Times and its unnamed writer of treason, and then he publicly

C.I.A. Drone Mission, Curtailed by Obama, Is Expanded in Africa Under Trump


Here is more trouble for Trump Fanboys.

The C.I.A. is poised to conduct secret drone strikes against Qaeda and Islamic State insurgents from a newly expanded air base deep in the Sahara, making aggressive use of powers that were scaled back during the Obama administration and restored by President Trump, reports the New York Times.

According to the Times, Nigerien and American officials said the C.I.A. had been flying drones on surveillance missions for several months from a corner of a small commercial airport in Dirkou. Satellite imagery shows that the airport has grown significantly since February to include a new taxiway, walls and security posts.

One American official said the drones had not yet been used in lethal missions, but would almost certainly be in the near future, given the growing threat in southern Libya.

"Mr. Trump is making a course correction..."



Here's another problem for Trump fanboys.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

On the military front, the administration’s new emphasis on delivering Islamic State an “enduring defeat” will extend the deployment of U.S. troops at least into next year, U.S. officials said.

The legal mandate for keeping U.S. troops in Syria is still linked to support of Kurdish and Arab fighters who are trying to finish off Islamic State. But the move has implications for the diplomatic wrangling over the country’s future as extending the U.S. mission against Islamic State will also prolong the presence of U.S. forces and their Syrian allies in oil-rich areas of eastern Syria that the Assad regime is eager to control.

While the White House hasn’t said precisely how long U.S. forces will stay or how many troops may be needed, delivering a lasting defeat to extremists will require more than taking back the remainder of Islamic State-controlled territory, U.S. officials said. It also requires ensuring that the group can’t make a comeback, as al Qaeda in Iraq, Islamic State’s forerunner, did less than two years after the Obama administration withdrew troops from that country at the end of 2011.

In Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution, Tucker Carlson tells the truth about the new American elites, a group whose power and wealth has grown beyond imagination even as the rest of the country has withered. The people who run America now barely interact with it. They fly on their own planes, ski on their own mountains, watch sporting events far from the stands in sky boxes.

In the summer of 2017, Trump suggested to then-national security adviser H.R. McMaster that the United States invade Venezuela to remove its autocratic president, Nicol├ís Maduro. McMaster did his best to dissuade Trump — and thought he had succeeded — until Trump raised the possibility publicly at a media appearance and in a meeting with Latin American leaders at the U.N. General Assembly.

“My people tell me this is not a good idea, but . . .” Trump said in the private meeting before raising the possibility of an invasion or regime change in Venezuela, according to officials.

Said one senior White House official on why Trump kept bringing it up: “Even when the staff says no, I think he holds out hope that he’ll find someone who thinks it’s a good idea.

A Koch Brothers Connection to the New York Times Anonymous Op-Ed Writer?

By Robert Wenzel

There is a lot of focus on the word "lodestar" that is contained in the anonymous op-ed piece written for the New York Times by a "senior Trump administration official".

The word is generally not used in common conversation and was not likely part of President Trump's vocabulary before the op-ed piece but Vice-President Pence sure likes the word.

 

But could the phrase have been picked up by some of the VP's aides or someone else around him? Which leads me to some other odd phrasing in the op-ed. This:
Although he was elected as a Republican, the president shows little affinity for ideals long espoused by conservatives: free minds, free markets and free people.
