The Insidiousness of Fake News

The Bill of Rights enshrines the right of every accused person to face his accuser and that all accused are innocent until proven guilty

(Sep. 19, 2018) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the land of the truth, at least we hope you tuned in to truths, which I suppose you have, or else you’d be watching Rachel Maddow making a fool of herself instead of watching us or, if you can’t get us on satellite, reading a corrected transcript of the program.

“Which reminds me of this: when an American is a guest in a foreign land, that person is a walking, talking U.S. Constitution, which is why an American is a cut above any other foreigner: only the United States is the Beacon of Freedom of and for the World. Think about it; we’re the Top Dog in a world full of dogs. And I’m not going to get on my soapbox and lecture about the Bottom Dog, because we’re back on our corner, under the awning, across the street from the railroad depot about to interview some of our neighbors on their way to work. Excuse me, sir, care to be interviewed on live TV? Roving here for ‘Pulse.’”

“Sure would like to be on your show, sonny boy. What do you want to talk about?”

“What’s your name and what do you do?”

“Dr. Robert E. Lee Harrison is my name and my occupation is a medical doctor. I go around the country testifying.”

“You’re an expert witness for or against the defendant, am I reading it right?”

“Right as rain, sonny boy.”

“Name’s Roving, by the way.  So what’s your take on the Deep State?”

“Strong as ever; hasn’t slowed one iota. You see, the enemy has infinite patience, something we Americans are in woefully short supply of. Our patience is registered in the length of a Bugs Bunny cartoon.”

“That short?”

“Used to be people read books; nowadays they surf the net or the TV. Time is measured in fractions of a second; well, in seconds. Look, if a song doesn’t grab you in a heartbeat it’s off to another station; if the first paragraph doesn’t make you want to read more then there’s NO SALE. Americans are regressing a little here, a little there. I must say, as a doctor it depresses me. And to top it off, the people who shouldn’t have kids are having them and the ones that should have kids aren’t. As I said, it’s depressing.”

“But you don’t seem depressed so it can’t be all bad, can it?”

“It all started when someone decided to store a little bit of food for tomorrow; and then for a week. And it accumulated into a 7-year cache but ever since then we’re saving less and less. We squander our resources, and the best example of man’s crime against nature is strip-mining, clear-cutting and paving paradise.”

“So how do you suppose we fix it?”

“Obviously self-regulation is out of the question: just look at our exponential population growth. If we had a lick of common sense it wouldn’t have gotten so much out of whack as it is, so what will happen will be a combination of pandemics, revolutions and wars. I’m right, aren’t I?”

“I suppose so.”

“Read your Shakespeare, Roving; he had all the answers for all the foibles of us humans. Take heed and take it to heart. My train does not await for thee. Cheerio, sonny boy.”

“The name’s Roving. Let’s take a well-deserved break.”

The Song of Music” (1:51)

“That was a pretty funny commercial; for you people having to read this transcript of ‘Pulse,’ our office manager/bookkeeper/receptionist/payroll clerk, Cheryl, picks out the songs in lieu of the real commercials, okay? You, there, the lady with the suitcase, care to be interviewed on live TV?”

“This is not a suitcase: it’s my purse.”

“Looks like a suitcase; I mean, it looks kind-of like a heavy suitcase.”

“It is heavy but it’s still a purse and for you to call my purse a suitcase just shows you have no decorum, manners, and a complete lack of upbringing. In short, you’re rude. I paid big bucks for this and you better apologize or I’ll have NOW after you. They’ll boycott you and make you unemployed, so there.”

“Not ‘so there.’ You mentioned NOW, as if a women’s organization that doesn’t denounce FGM has any viability on anything, so take your empty threat of a know-nothing AND do-nothing organization and get on your train. Let’s break for a commercial.”

Chances Are” (3:11)

“And we’re back. Oh, hello, for a minute I thought you were my shadow. Care to be interviewed on ‘Pulse,’ the one-stop truth station? So, what’s your name and what’s the big bug of the day for you?”

“I’m Bill and how do you do? My pet complaint is this charge against Kavanaugh being so transparent of its bogusness – is that a word, bogusness? if it isn’t it should be – that I don’t even want to mention it. The only thing I have to say is that our country is at the crossroads; it’s at the precipice of its continuation: either Judge Kavanaugh is voted into the Supreme Court forthwith or our country is toast. Toast, I tell you.”

“We hear you loud and clear. What about all the proof being made public of the Russian Collusion being nothing but a ploy to overthrow the government by the Deep State?”

“Should’ve been made public a year ago; it could have and should have been, but now is okay if it is now, not next week or until after the elections. Look, there’s my train. One last thing: I’ll believe that we’re all equal under the law, just like the Constitution says, the day Hillary is behind bars: LOCK HER UP!  See you around.”

“Thanks for taking the time to spout off, Bill. And now it’s that time for me, on behalf of the crew, to wish you all a good night. And our thoughts and prayers go out to all the flood victims. Wait! The Vietnam Veteran and the Talking Dog just walked around the corner. Hey, guys, off to the dog park, are we?”

“Yes, we are. Look, the dog wants to say a few words. The dog says that it’s showdown time: either everything about the Russia hoax is exposed, meaning the Deep State is exposed for exactly what it is: a political group willing to take down the government of the United States and replace it with empty promises and an empty purse, after they take everything they can steal, or goodbye to the USA: it’s time for a REAL Spartacus moment.

“And then there’s this delay vote tactic for Kavanaugh. Think about the tack record of the accuser: three strikes against her* even before she testifies (or not), okay? Let’s get real, for once. This is political correctness run amuck; is there anyone with an ounce of common sense left in our country? Get on with it and take the vote. Dr. Ford is not an issue: the issue is the ‘Duck Test: does it look like a duck?’ Yes, it does. It looks like a cheap and despicable political-ploy duck so move it along. Grow up. Bye.”

“Have fun at the dog park. Now it’s time to say goodnight: Goodnight.

“Another great show. Burger time: my treat.”

[*Here are the FACTS of Dr. Ford: Hates Trump; is a college professor who hates Trump, America and the Constitution; is a Left-Wing Loony from California who hates Trump, America and the Constitution. Are we clear on this matter? This is Deep State out in the open grasping for straws, the fools, and we’re fools for giving Dr. Ford the time of day.]

Time Won’t Let Me” (2:45)
