the basic ideological definitions of governmental control to explain the political spectrum

overreach consequences – “Raiding Donald Trump’s private residence without compelling justification, the FBI violated Gertrude Stein’s rule about knowing how far to go when going too far.” —  Roger Kimball: The Feds Go Too Far › American Greatness — “the FBI violated Gertrude Stein’s golden rule about knowing how far to go when going too far. They will, I predict, pay the price, and the country will be a freer, safer, less intimidated place.”

armed forces inventory – “We have what the founders feared most: a “standing” or permanent army on American soil. … there are a growing number of exceptions to which Posse Comitatus does not apply. These exceptions serve to further acclimate the nation to the sight and sounds of military personnel on American soil and the imposition of martial law. … The menace of a national police force—a.k.a. a standing army—vested with the power to completely disregard the Constitution, cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored.” — John & Nisha Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute: Weaponizing The Bureaucracy: Who Will Protect Us From The Government’s Standing Army? | ZeroHedge — “All of these assaults on the constitutional framework of the nation have been sold to the public as necessary for national security.”

anything for everything – “No one outside the ruling class would want any part of the lefts socialist national agenda, so they must lie to have any success. … evil has always had to use deception to disguise its true nature” — D. Parker: The Evil of the Anti-Liberty Left – American Thinker — “hey are not only perpetrating these horrendous policies, but outright lying so people support them without knowing what they are.  If that isn’t evil, then what is?”

it’s who they are – “This mass delusion of the left, that the former guy is “an existential threat to democracy” and a “moral emergency,” as Harris described it on British podcast “Triggernometery” last week, has metastasized under a president afflicted with a bad case of Trump derangement syndrome.” … “The antipathy to Trump among the elites is more about visceral class revulsion and a fear of contagion than his morality or politics.” … “The propaganda media of the left amplifies and twists this attitude in hateful ways.” — Miranda Devine: The left’s mask slips on brazen Trump bias — “History tells us where dehumanization always ends.”

hope for sanity – “Personal injury lawyers are either revered or reviled. Sometime purveyors of junk science, they often prey on a vulnerable and scientifically averse judiciary. But things are a’changin- at least for asbestos. And that signals bad news for the talc plaintiffs.” —  Barbara Pfeffer Billauer: Asbestos Causes Cancer? Only if You Can Prove It – and That’s Getting Harder | American Council on Science and Health

presumption is no substitute for reality – “From a societal view, we are beginning to “do right” by our veterans. From a scientific point of view, the association of these adverse health effects solely with burn pits and no other environmental factors is a bit tenuous. By not fully investigating the more specific exposures of our veterans, we are losing an important opportunity – to better understand and target what in the chemical mix of what we term PM2.5, may be a causal factor.” — Chuck Dinerstein: Let’s Talk About … Burn Pits | American Council on Science and Health
