A moran of morans. Or two of them. Dem Senator calls out another Dem Senator (rightly) as why we can’t have nice things. Nitwit Nero loses again in court.
A lot went into making the Constitution. The personality conflicts, alone, required kid gloves. Then there were the issues of what “self-government” should be, how it should work. In this episode, Dr Bill discusses these wrinkles and roadblocks, from how to get John Hancock aboard, to disinterested delegates, to yes, impeachment. You won’t get this kind of history in many (if any) other places.
“Non Est De Felem Damnatavium Deum” (or something like that)
Quite the busy, far-flung FotFP! From healthcare to what a jackass Joe Manchin is (duh!) to the deep-seated male fears of the “feminine mystique” to coconut crabs. This ain’t your ordinary radio.
Yeeeee-ouuuch! It’s a bush that’s far more thorns than leaves or flowers. Dems pass Impeachment procedure resolution that GOP’s been begging for. Ergo, GOP decries transparent resolution. Behold Louie “Asparagus” Gohmert. Rep. Katie Hill bids farewell, puts a shot across Trump’s bow on the way out. Another oil spill on the Keystone XL pipeline.
Busy week for the two-legged monsters of the Religion Industry! Homophobes! Xenophobes! Priests worried about the prayshus leetle fetuseseseses (not so much the prayshus little born children)! Daubenmire ponders buttplugs! Fallopian fascists in Missouri! Graham crackers on the march!
Well, now! Jared tells an Israeli TV station that Nitwit Nero is “unimpeachable.” Looney Mooney makes West Virginia look like idiot hillbillies . . . again. Impeachment Procedure resolution is coming.
Morans as far as the eye can see and the nose can smell! From ballparks to news sets to the White House to a ballroom in Chicago, the morans are running amok. OMG! Trump killed al-BigDaddy!
Trump loses another case. So much losing! Of course, it will go up on appeal, and, as usual, the SCOTUS does not inspire constitutional confidence. Rep. Elijah Cummings’ funeral was an inspirational celebration of his life . . . and Hillary put a shot direct amidships on Don & Melanoma and the crowd loved her for it. Also: it’s not about the cats: an epic discursion by the Extraordinary-Ordinary Roundtable group!
It’s our HORNiversary! Fourteen years in its current form and 16+ overall for independent, liberal, progressive, commercial-free, non-capitalist radio! Regardless, the world keeps moving. Homicidal MAGAT umpire gets outed. The MAGAT riot in the Capitol wasn’t just a “stunt.” The return of Matt “Hot Tub Crime Machine” Whitaker. Why root for a 4-game sweep in the World Series? Onward into the next year!
With the Deacons getting the night off, we look to those who support Trump no matter what. They have their marching orders and their goal is to (a) terrify the MAGATs and (b) Weaponize the violence for which they so fervently pray. Behold EVILgelical Christianity! But wait! There’s more! If you download now, you’ll ALSO find out what happened in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals (which, curiously, isn’t the Second District Court) on Wednesday. Nitwit Nero’s lawyer attempted to elevate him to god-on-earth status. AND, if you act now, you’ll find out about the means by which well-meaning journalists help to “catapult the propaganda.”
The enigma of James Madison and effective self-government. Was Madison sincere, or was he pursuing a means to an end? The question has decided relevance today, as we see political opportunists claiming the mantle of “freedom” and “liberty,” yet filled with disdain for constitutional principles. Once again, if you take Dr. Bill’s teaching to heart, you’re probably ahead of a majority of the voters in this country and waaaaay ahead of 100% of Trump and his supporters.
A disgusting man showed us today his willingness to plumb the depths of his own nauseating indecency. And that was just New Gingrich and Lindsey Graham.
Mike Pompeo continues to devalue a degree from West Point. Today, he suggested going to war against Turkey. Igor bought himself a congressman. Trump melts down in front of cameras, assaults the Constitution he swore to uphold and defend as “phony.” That is as near sacrilege as a secular republic can get, and it is past intolerable.
What makes Dr. Bill’s programs so special is his ability to relate things happening in real time with things that happened at the origins of our country and make it crystal clear. Today, the Emoluments Clause, among other things. You’ll benefit from the time you share with Dr. Bill.
Truncated program. Plenty of thorns to pull in the first hour, but I ended the program early due to (another) family emergency.
Prayer Meetin’ gets pre-empted by presidential meltdown. Nitwit Nero came apart at the seams in a meeting with Congressional leaders and Defense Department. Any other president would be in 25th Amendment territory. Pence as Hamlet, crippled by indecision. Trump sends a letter to Erdogan. Eddogan probably didn’t even take time to sniff trumps cologne on the letter before he trashed it. Lindsey has a chat with Pat Robertson.
Dr Bill’s incisive recap from last night’s Democratic Pageant on CNN. Also (and perhaps more importantly), a deep dive into the mind of James Madison and what we really mean by “self-governance.”
Flank speed at the iceberg dead-ahead! It’s Pageant Night in Murka! Idiot Attack Blonde at ONAN, er, OANN tries to whitewash Columbus, fails miserably. Ronna ROMNEY McDaniel whines about nepotism; so does Rand Paul. Both would be working midnights alongside Meg McCain at Waffle House were it not for their last names. Nitwit Nero gets increasingly nervous. How long can the Depends hold? Nancy Pelosi refuses to take the bait. Chris Hayes displays the integrity our media so desperately need.
Mrs. Greenspan, Dowager Empress of the Beltway, gets an early nod for some bottom-shelf both-siderism. Homicidial Trump video is a powerful example of stochastic terrorism from . . . ? Nukes held hostage. UK couple and their baby really held hostage . . . by ICE thugs. Don’t have a seizure in Tennesstan. Got a Trump document problem? No worries! Just shred ’em!
