(Mar. 5, 2019) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the show that just lays it out for all to see. Hello, my name is Roving, as in Roving Reporter (RR), and we’re back in Professor Zorkophsky’s plush digs at our university. Why? Because we want answers and the weather has turned too darn cold to risk frostbite. So, Professor, what’s the latest addition to your unbelievably interesting office?”

“The hyperbaric chamber may be of interest to you, Roving. Follow me and we’ll go through this door and, presto, my mini-hospital right here in my office. It may be small, but I can have everything done to me that the Mayo Clinic can; pretty neat, don’t you think? And, please, Roving, you can call me ‘Zork’; there’s no need to be so formal in my most relaxing office.”

“Okay, Zork, let me ask you about these documents that Trump keeps threatening to declassify.”

“I’m so glad you brought that up, Roving, because I just finished the outline of my new book, ‘A Primer in Logic.’ Look, most of your viewers know about Thomas Aquinas’s question about how many angels can fit on the head of a pin, but if we extrapolate that thought to include a false premise MUST render a false conclusion, then we’re on to something concrete; something that we can sink our teeth into; something that’s real.”

“Earth calling Zork, if you don’t mind. How about running that by me again?

“It’s like this, Roving: the media has treated the FISA warrants, that were based on false information, as real. Notice I didn’t say ‘false evidence’?”

“Well, yes, I did notice. I take it that the word ‘evidence’ and ‘truth’ are synonymous?”

“In the real world, that’s quite true, but in the Deep Swamp of Washington, DC, truth is in the eye of the beholder, and if the beholder has been infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome, then all bets are off.”

“Go on.”

“The Russian Collusion is but an illusion based on false information, ergo any conclusion that is derived from false information must also be false. I mean, you can’t tell me my car is red when my car is silver, and no amount of FISA warrants stating that my car is red will change the fact that my car is silver. You can hire Robert Mueller and have him investigate — for over two years — and my car will still be silver, regardless of Mueller’s conclusion that my car is red.”

“So the Mueller Investigation was, what, a colossal waste of time?”

“And money. But that’s not germane; what is important is that all the players who are investigating President Trump KNEW that the FISA warrants were based on lies, and since the FBI and the DOJ – and the mainstream media – supported the lies then, like Joseph Goebbels once noted, ‘If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.’ Look at Joe Scarborough and Whoopi Goldberg, just two examples who have been consumed by Trump Derangement.  So there you have it, the premise of my new book.”

“So, if you were to capsulize your book in one sentence…?”

“It would be a message to Trump: release those documents with no redactions. We, the people, have the right to know who the despicable, dishonest and the sowers of disharmony are.”

“And that’s it?”

“In a nutshell.”

“Thank you, Zork. And now it’s that time for me, on behalf of the crew, to thank you for watching (or reading) and to wish you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show, Zork. Tell me more about this hyperbaric chamber and then we’ll get some burgers: my treat.”

It Hurts Me Too” (3:17)
