Free Ride book
Free Ride: John McCain and the Media by David Brock and Paul Waldman documents how the media have abandoned their post as honest arbiters in coverage of their friend, John McCain. They show how the media has enabled McCain's rise from the Keating Five scandal to the underdog hero of the 2000 primaries to his roller-coaster run for the 2008 nomination.

Fair and balanced my ass book
Fair and Balanced, My Ass! is a wide-ranging, irreverent, and humorous look at America's number-one cable news network. It examines Fox's phony patriotism and piety, its dishonest crusades, its well-defined agenda, and ratings-driven techniques. The authors deliver a hearty slap down to the jewels in the Murdoch crown, including Bill O'Reilly, Hannity and Colmes, Fox and Friends, and more.

Watchdogs of Democracy book
In Watchdogs of Democracy, Veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas offers a cogent, bracing assessment of the deteriorating state of journalistic ethics. She claims that the Bush-2 White House has pioneered "methods that steer message management into outright government propaganda." And never before have Washington reporters behaved like lapdogs rather than watchdogs, unwilling to ask obvious questions and demand honest answers.

False Alarm
Trump's State of Emergency
By Bryan Zepp Jamieson

February 14, 2019

I usually donít watch Trump on TV any more. Itís not just because heís a vile jerk and a jackassóafter all, I watched George Bush the lesser for eight yearsóbut because he is so fundamentally dishonest the only way youíll actually learn anything is if he has an unguarded moment and blurts out a truth of some sort.

Yeah, stopped clock and all that. Even the blind nut finds a squirrel. Sure enough, Trump committed a MUTóMoment of Unintentional Truth, when he blurted out, ďI could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didnít need to do this, but Iíd rather do it much faster.Ē

OK, so itís not actually an emergency. It wasnít an emergency for the first two years Trump was in office, and with nothing materially changing on the border in the month since, still isnít an emergency. The only thing that made it an emergency was Congress changed hands, and Trump wanted to blame the Democrats for not getting his wall. But Trump has put it in terms that no court or Congressman can ignore: as an ďemergency,Ē this is pure bullshit. Ann Coulter, now the moral compass of the GOP, had her own MUT when she blurted during a radio interview, ďThe only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.Ē

Another blind nut, another squirrel. Will wonders ever cease? Iím sure Ann has her own reasons for hating Trump, and Iím equally sure those reasons reside in an utterly alien universe, but it is sort of fun watching her and Trump get in a pissing match. Two baboons, feces at five feet. Duel of the century, folks. Gitcher popcorrn here.

As mentioned, I watched Trump for as long as I could stomach it. It was hilarious in the way that Rufus T. Firefly was hilarious, or Charlie Chaplin as The Great Dictator. Except this is real. Annís idiot, burdened with dementia and underlying personality disorders, is the most powerful man on the planet, militarily speaking, with the ability to kill us all.

But, overlooking his ability to ruin or end your life, it was pretty funny. He spent a fair bit of time praising Rush Limbaugh, passť radio demagogue, for his ability to speak for three hours straight without taking a phone call. Apparently being able to rant for hours at a time is considered a virtue with Trump. Certainly some leaders have been noted for it: Fidel Castro, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini all spring to mind. Limbaugh is only fair-to-middling long-winded by radio gasbag standards who are free to repeat themselves endlessly and make stuff up for the edification of their audience, whose IQs are generally measured in units of birdseed.

Trump claimed (falsely) that drugs flowed freely over the border in those areas where there is no wall. Since most drugs come in by plane or through border crossings, thatís sort of true, but Trump wants to stop drugs from flowing into the country, he says. To that end, of the $8 billion he wants to steal for his vanity project, $2.5 billion would come from the Pentagonís drug interdiction program.

Very good, Donald. Next, you can shut down the IRS in order to pay for a committee on tax cheating.

Trump admits that his declaration would do poorly in the courts, comparing it to his fatwa against Islamic immigrants. It would lose in the ninth, and then the appeals (he got the order reversed, of course, but "We'll end up in the Supreme Court and hopefully get a fair shake and win in the Supreme Court just like the ban." Yup, you have two partisan hacks who owe you in the Court.

But itís unlikely to even make it to the courts.

The House will take it up, probably today, and will probably pass a resolution negating the Declaration of Emergency in the following days next week. Already, Democratic congressionals are sidling up to their Republican counterpoints and whispering, ďSay, I canít wait for President Ocasio-Cortez to Declare a State of Emergency in order to make the Green

New Deal the law of the land.Ē

The Republicanís face turns white and his pants turn brown at the thought of such a demonic presidential power unleashed. 2018 taught them the ability to steal elections is not absolute, and public will can thwart corporate design.

Most of them have already realized the only thing worse than having someone other than Trump as a candidate in 2020 is having Trump as a candidate in 2020. Itís an offal thought. They will decide not to give Trump this power. Iím guessing the resolution might get 350 votes.

So it goes to the Senate, where Mitch McConnell canít simply kill it by refusing to let it come up for a vote. The law mandates open debate and a public vote on this sort of resolution within two weeks.

Mitch had already crouched and urinated a profession of undying love for Trump and his Emergency declaration, so Iím predicting that Mitch is going to have a really shitty time of it, especially since many Republicans are either unwilling to give any president a blank check like that, and/or are thoroughly fed up with Trump and deeply apprehensive of what bizarre stunt he might come up with next.

So Trump will claim the $1.4 billion he got for border security is far better than the $1.57 billion he was offered in December, and far better than the $8 billion he wanted. That boy spins like the Tasmanian Devil on meth.

Winning is his! Medals for Everyone!
