Mike Malloy is a former writer and producer for CNN (1984-87) and CNN-International (2000). His professional experience includes newspaper columnist and editor, writer, rock concert producer and actor. He is the only radio talk show host in America to have received the A.I.R (Achievement in Radio) Award in both Chicago and New York City, the number three and number one radio markets in the country. His radio experience includes the 50,000 watt blow-torches in both the South and the Midwest, respectively WSB-AM in Atlanta and WLS-AM in Chicago, and as one of the original hosts on Air America - a two-year-long association that ended in a massive train wreck. Mike's nationally-syndicated program can now be heard weeknights on affiliates of the Nova M Network and on XM Satellite and Sirius Satellite Radio as well as on live Internet streaming.
It is not difficult to pigeon-hole Malloy politically. Generally speaking, he is a traditional Liberal Democrat doing his part to return the Democratic Party to its Liberal roots.

Using their degenerate belief system, could it be that Fat Tony was plucked from his afternoon nap and sent to the cornfield because the spook decided he wanted outcomes on pending Court decisions that FT would not deliver? Is this true, Prosperity Pimps? (It would most certainly be their conclusion if it had been the liberal Justice Ginsburg who was dispatched, right?

A word not often used in politics is: inevitable. However some Republican voters are now using it to describe a Trump victory in the primaries as well as in the general election this November. And, these are not -- emphatically not -- Trump supporters. They could be described as conservative, Republican, evangelical, or any combination of those terms.

Could this horror have been managed differently if the 9-11 attacks were handled by the Justice Department rather than the Dept. of War Defense? As a police, rather than military, action? Or if the Supremes hadn't appointed Dubya as Commandant in Chief?

Today's United States Air Force is shockingly riddled with calculated, deliberate and willful ignorance as to what its actual mission is...the constant, strident attempts by airmen to 'free range' proselytize the exclusivist dominance of the evangelical Christian fundamentalist faith.

Eventually, your city, town, church, school, shopping mall or neighborhood (and possibly one of your family members; maybe you) will be added to the gun killings list. Count on it. Bet on it. Why? Because we worship our guns; we are a country of extreme violence.

Here we are, 45 years later and a cynic -- like me -- might ask, "And, what have we accomplished since then?" It's a question an idealist -- like me -- should avoid asking because of the absolute and total co-option of Earth Day by the same corporations now involved in destroying everything. Everything. Completely.

n keeping with its mission of death, destruction, and corporate profits Dow has endorsed the fast-track authority bill (TPA) now being readied in Congress for the President's rubber stamp. Dow -- as well as other predatory capitalist enterprises -- are beside themselves with gleeful anticipation.

The one group always found at the top of any pyramid of power in the U.S. -- it is them: White, male and Christian. And, if you listen to and watch these poor wretched souls as they whine and screech and pass laws protecting them from their tormentors, you begin to realize how far over the edge into religious madness these charlatans have taken themselves.

McCain, himself a war criminal by the definitions decided and accepted at the Nuremberg War Crimes trials after World War II, could not abide the presence of Code Pink, the anti-war group attending the hearing to object to war criminals offering advice to the Senate on legislation that will -- if enacted -- open the door to more war, death, destruction and suffering.

The Conservatives insist they were defending America, protecting us from the terrorists who are lurking everywhere, everywhere, everywhere. The conventional wisdom says the torture report will be forgotten or become irrelevant by Election Day 2016. The conventional wisdom is probably correct.
SHARE Monday, December 8, 2014 Flawed by Design
The percentage of non-whites that now account for the largest proportion of those in jail or prison -- a prison system that has the greatest number of its citizens locked down compared to any other country on earth? What is failing? Perhaps nothing is failing. Maybe this is how the American justice system was designed to operate.

The soon-to-be-released Senate report on the torture, kidnapping, illegal detention, and interrogation of Afghan citizens and others swept up and delivered to the CIA during the initial stages of Bush's "war on terror" does not even mention the responsibility of the Bush Administration in organizing, ordering, and carrying out these criminal activities.

The US Congress -- both House and Senate -- have learned their lessons, too. No sooner does an incident arise that -- if committed by a country other than Israel -- would clearly be identified as at best a human rights violation, and at worst a war crime does the House and Senate suddenly find a cohesion that otherwise simply does not exist.

US citizens have no idea why there is--and continues to be--an unrelenting surge of refugees at our southern border. Tired, frightened, desperate Central American mothers and their small children are now met with gun-wielding, shouting Americans draped in US flags and flecked with their own spittle--a welcoming committee that should shame every person who lives in this country.

How does one respond to such disfiguring logic such as that of Louie Gohmert? One can't, really. One can only scratch one's head and marvel at whatever substance is in Texas' drinking water (fracking fluid?) that produces such a bumper crop of half-wits who populate the state's political system.

The BBC strongly recommends its science reporters attend seminars organized by the world's leading scientists, researchers, and science writers. The point in attending is to be able to separate fact-based reporting from the sort of garbage swung hither and yon by US media outlets, especially television.

There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour. America is false to the past, false to the present, and solemnly binds herself to be false to the future.

The Supreme Court today opened the door to an absolute tornado of coming petitions to block a woman's right to obtain contraception and other female health applications under the Affordable Care Act. This decision to a certain subset of corporations is worse than a joke. This is precedent that will -- is being -- celebrated by Christian Fundamentalists as one more victory on the way to legal female subjugation.

In a published screed that reads as though it came from a character in a Margaret Atwood novel, Will insists that campus rape is an "alleged" act (he doesn't even mention the associated violence) -- and that these crimes against young women confer so much "status" that women seek the title "victim."
