Post Daily Show, Jim Cramer=Seinfeld Kramer w/o the hair or abrasive charm.

It's a good start, but Judge Jon should continue putting the guilty in the public stocks. The following are linked indictments from the grand jury.

Rupert Murdoch & Fox/Lush Rimbaugh/Karl Rove: When did you decide your God-given duty was to make our politics a God-given (and not People-given) duty?

Eric Prince (Founder of Blackwater Insecurity): How deep does the blackwater get when you deny that you're part of the 'military industrial complex' that Eisenhower warned about?  

Rex Tillerson - Exxon CEO Why don't you just admit that nothing gives you more satisfaction than finding a sustainable way to unsustainably run your business?

Phil Gramm:  When you passed federal deregulation of the financial industry, did you mean privatizing profits while nationalizing risk?

If you're curious, the difference between Judge Judi and Judge Jon should be obvious:  there is only one Supreme Court.

The following are actual Judge Jon court transcripts, to be contemplated only by the serious juror:


Stewart to auto executive:
Whose idea was it to make large vehicles attractive by the self-defense logic of 'bigger is better'?  The reality is that SUV's are in a disproportionate number of accidents because they're more difficult to control; 70% of accidents are single vehicle so bigger just means more kinetic energy; & most fatalities are caused in head-on accidents & in those situations it's crumple zone that protects but big block V8's don't crumple.

Can you look in the camera & state that the logic of buying a big vehicle for self-defense is moronic for the individual & bad for a society that needs to be more energy efficient?  

Stewart to electronics executive: Now I know your marketing department has a future marketing slogan along the lines of: "Now hook up your 2010 model year computer to your 2001 model year TV!"

Look at the camera & explain why you sell deliberately impaired products that quickly become e-junk. Which law of physics prevents you from replacing the obsolete VGA port with HDMI?  Is it Smoore's law: do you have marshmallows for brains with sticky fingers for cash?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I don't think it's Jon Stewart's intention to do (4+ / 0-)

    expose's.  He's a comedian, and it actually pisses him off that it gets laid on his shoulders to do so.

    I think he'd much rather see, y'know, journalists do their job.

    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity: lick it once and suck forever.

    Look at Environmental destruction done by large multinational companies in the pursuit of "sustainability".. Blowing up pristine rivers, removing mountain tops.

    Many of us would be forever in his debt and would make any pie that he likes..and send it to him..by courier..same day delivery if possible.

    If he needs specific examples..he can start at Toba Inlet..damming 17 creeks and rivers , I know that other Kossacks have many other fine examples.

    •  The Daily Show is owned by a media conglomerate. (0+ / 0-)

      Not a news-media owning conglomerate.  But still, I don't see that there would be much interest for Jon to start slinging rocks at either types of giants here.

        bad about "conglomerates" except that they don't tend to be sustainable, but the point here is that these "news" shows/stations aren't delivering "news."  They are propaganda.  They drive our politics and legislation.  They LIE and DISTORT to drive a political agenda.  And the monopoly they have has fairly silenced their critics.  This is illegal, but it's ongoing.  

        He touched on it in the Cramer takedown.  I'd like to see it go further and talk about Fox, the WSJ, CNN, etc.  And the radio airwaves that have been taken over and wholly owned by the right.

    Or maybe how his recent divorce is going to eat into his ability to save his flagging media empire --

    Any divorce settlement would come out of Sumner Redstone’s own pocket, and not his family's Boston-based business, National Amusements Inc., said two people close to the firm. National Amusements is caught in a credit squeeze and Redstone's daughter, Shari Redstone, who runs the company, is trying to restructure its nearly $1.6-billion debt load, including an $800-million bank loan that is due in mid-December.

    That would be some seriously funny comedy.

  •  Expose Fractional Reserve Lending/FR System (0+ / 0-)


    Why is our Nation's monetary system beholden to a private profiteering group of Banking Oligarchs [ the "Federal" Reserve Monopoly ], that generates public debt (runs it up), as money is created, and relies on the "fractional reserve lending" ponzi scheme to both lend out and profit further from non-existent money that was never even created?

    1. This system has made our entire Economy dependent on the borrowing of vast sums of money.
    1. This is a direct violation of the Constitution
    1. Despite Congress (being bribed to) voluntarily give away control of our Nation's Economy to the International Bankers back in 1913 (Federal Reserve Act), it had no Constitutional authority to delegate this power over to the hands of an unelected, profiteering 3rd-party.
    1. The poor American citizen/taxpayer has become responsible for all the generated debt (looting), and is stuck with an ever-increasing lower standard-of-living as the money supply expands endlessly to chase the runaway debt.

    We can dramatically improve our Economy, by doing exactly what Abraham Lincoln did, and print debt-free money (the original "greenbacks") directly through the U.S. Treasury itself, and bypass the crooked and corrupt Federal Reserve Banking Cartel (Rothchilds, Morgan, Rockefeller, Goldman Sacs, Citibank, Chase, etc.).

    It is not necessary for the Bank Oligarchy to run our Economy (into the ditch), and make a laughing stock of the U.S. Dollar.

    Lincoln financed the entire Civil War (greenbacks)without driving the Nation into debt, and without making our Country the financial fodder for Banking Elites, and without runway borrowing.

    Once this corruption, massive debt, looting and currency devaluation behind Fractional Reserve Lending is exposed, the public outrage will demand change.
