Media Curbs on Trump: A Very Bad Idea

A college professor says the media should put a muzzle on the president, by not reporting the tweets, rallies, and insults that he puts out to gain political advantage.  Brian L. Ott, a professor of Communications Studies at Texas Tech University says news outlets should stop enabling Donald Trump, by carrying his hateful messages to the American public.  But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says such censorship of the President’s worrds and actions would lead to a much worse situation.  He explains why, in this exchange with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

After Mueller: What’s Next for Trump?

The President is declaring victory over his critics following the non-conclusions of the Mueller Report regarding Obstruction of Justice, and the affirmative conclusion that there was no “Russian Collusion” on Trump’s part.  But Democrats are making it plain that they will pursue all such matters further –much further.

 

How much traction will they get, heading into the 2020 elections?  Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano, talking about that with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Two Reports: Smollett Skates/Voters Don’t Care about Mueller Probe

He staged a false racial attack, caused the Chicago Police Department to spend tons of money and man hours, inflamed racial tensions in a city already rent by violence and hatred  –and now it’s just, uh, ‘never mind?  A great deal if you can get it.  And Jussie Smollett did!

And in a second report, polling shows that voters don’t give a rat’s, uh posterior, about the results of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s exhaustive, 22-month long, 31 million dollar investigation into Trump’s activities.  Considering such polling, how much longer should Democrats and other critics continue to harp on Trump’s alleged “Russian Collusion?”   Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York in discussion of both topics.  First, Smollett:

 

New Zealand Shootings: Is Trump Really the Blame?

The massacre of worshipers at a mosque in New Zealand has renewed accusations that President Trump is responsible for the surge in hate crimes in the U.S. and around the world.  In a manifesto, the white supremacist who shot and killed 50 people

cites Trump as a symbol of White Pride, with whom he shares a common purpose. But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says such violence can’t be blamed solely on Trump, but also on the Democrats and Republicans and corporate and other special interests who laid the groundwork for what’s now occurring around the globe.  Here’s Larry in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Will He be the Next President of the United States?

Beto O’Rourke says he’s in.  He joins a growing field of Democratic contenders for the big prize.  Can he make it all the way to the White House his first time around?   On-Target’s Larry Sparano  and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York discuss O’Rourke’s strengths and weaknesses as he aims high -very high:

 

 

The Face of a Truth Teller: Obama’s “Hope and Change” a Mirage

Despite all the praise of all-things Obama from the liberal media, one of the brash new Democrats in Congress says it was all an illusion. And behind the “pretty face” and “polish,” was a president who, in many respects, conducted business as usual –in favor or war, Wall Street and the status quo. It’s much of the same type of business for which Trump is being constantly and intensely criticized. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minnesota) complaints against President Obama are detailed in a new Politico report. On-Target’s Larry Sparano gives reasons why he strongly agrees with her, in this discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX New York:

Will They Get Trump by Going after His Kids?

Accusations, outrage, Congressional hearings and investigations are flying fast and furious, now that the Democrats have control of the House in Congress.  But will the weight of all that really sink the Ship of Trump?Here’s an analysis with On-Target’s Larry Sparano, in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio, New York:

Trump and Hannity

Trump’s “State News” –Just Fox, or All the Networks?

Trump and Hannity, pictured above: That pretty much says it all about the incestuous relationship between Trump and Fox News. In a recent article in the New Yorker magazine Jane Mayer details that relationship, which she says is the closest we’ve come to official “State News.” Here’s a discussion on that article between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of Wiox Radio New York:

Cohen to Testify: Yikes!

The canary is about to sing.  The “rat” as the President called him, is about to spill his guts before Congress, the nation, and the world.  All this playing out as the Commander-in-Chief is in summit, in Vietnam, with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.  Break out the popcorn, pull up a seat and watch the Greatest (Political) Show on Earth!

Venezuela: Elliot Abrams to Impose “Democracy”

He’s back!  The same Neocon who brought “Democracy” to other South American nations, is now in charge of doing the same to Venezuela.  A look at the picture above says it all:  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announcing Abrams as the new Special U.S. Envoy to Venezuela.  He’s the determined-looking fellow lurking to Pompeo’s right.  Larry Sparano lays out in detail Abrams’ past atrocities, and his plans to make Venezuela safe for American interests.  His discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York follows a report by Abby Martin of the Empire Files Podcast
