Back into the lion's den

I'll be appearing on the Kremer and Abrams radio show again this morning, from 9 to 11, on KXL radio (750 AM in Portland). I'm the substitute lefty, and Rob Kremer and his listeners are the righties. Sometimes I hold my own.

Comments (8)

Bojacks statement about the bailout/rescue pork package making it crystal clear the way business in done in our congress made my stomach and head churn. Our children are gonna hate our guts in 20 yrs.

Jack...u are the man when it comes to writing brilliantly....BUT if you are going to do radio much more "show prep" is the order of the day.

To allow yr co-host to once again parrot the old Rep talking points about lack of achievement from Obama, Rev Wright, terrorist, blah blah blah, without any coherent come back shows a lack of very simple prep. You were taken to the woodshed.

If you can't crap on the pot, get off it.

Like most talk shows, it was pretty good until you started taking calls.

without any coherent comeback

I do what I can with the opportunity I have to interject, which is limited. I do not set the agenda for the show and am not given the topics ahead of time.

If you'd like to supply me the talking-points answer on Ayers, I'd be glad to keep it on file. I personally believe it was politically stupid of Obama to be anywhere near the guy.

Callers answered the "lack of achievement" thing pretty well, but again, opportunity to deliver a response is limited.

u say >without any coherent comeback

u say >>>>I do what I can with the opportunity I have to interject, which is limited. I do not set the agenda for the show and am not given the topics ahead of time

Jack I know u have a day job but, u are so well read, and aware, I am surprised you did not think more about what was coming at u on a right wing/post Palin/Larson radio station.

>>If you'd like to supply me the talking-points answer on Ayers, I'd be glad to keep it on file. I personally believe it was politically stupid of Obama to be anywhere near the guy

Err no actually Jack, u are the one on the radio talking to all these people. You have something like 17 minutes an hour when crap like news/spots are on KXL so get on yr laptop and stop kissing Kremer(or Abrams, I'm confused) and do some Ayers research so you are better prepared on the other side of the break.

>>>>Callers answered the "lack of achievement" thing pretty well, but again, opportunity to deliver a response is limited

How come yr "opportunity to limited" ? thinks you like being sexy on the radio and you agree to the rules that KXL program dir James Derby inflicts upon you so the overtly left slant remains intact for Lars/Oreilly etc al.

Also don't forget that the only reason the Kremer and Abrams prog is still on the air at KXL, is that right wing idealogue, Bill Gander at Standard and Appl,agreed to pony up the sponsorship money to keep it going.

Hey I'm surprised the KXL sales staff aren't filling all your spots with Shilo Inn "trade" spots (Google Mark Hemstreet and poacher, tax avoider, bankrupt)

Anyway keep up the good work

Hey, haha, I also have e-mail. My next KXL gig is Nov. 9 (Sunday after the election). Block out some time and help me out that morning!

Tee hee Jack...will do my best...but on Nov 5th I'm married for 25 years and at our age that is the one day of the year her indoors and I try to make whoopee and we normally take a few days to recover.

Given your charm....who knows :)

"... supply me the talking-points answer on Ayers, I'd be glad to keep it on file."

"... it was politically stupid of Obama to be anywhere near the guy."

Reported fact is, he was NOT "anywhere near." The New York Times, in the October 4 article Palin cited in making her claim, reported that "the two men do not appear to have been close. Nor has Mr. Obama ever expressed sympathy for the radical views and actions of Mr. Ayers, whom he has called 'somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8.' " This is the second time in two days that a report ... has quoted Palin's comments about Ayers without noting that Palin was distorting the NY Times article she cited.


On October 4, The New York Times published a 2,140-word front-page article about Sen. Barack Obama's association with former Weather Underground member William Ayers -- at least the 18th Times article this year mentioning that association. But the Times has yet to mention, let alone devote an entire article to, Sen. John McCain's relationship with radio host and convicted Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy. Indeed, in its October 4 article, the Times quoted Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman denouncing Obama's association with Ayers but did not note that Chapman has described Liddy as McCain's "own Bill Ayers" and has written that "[i]f Obama needs to answer questions about Ayers, McCain has the same obligation regarding Liddy."

Liddy served four and a half years in prison [a convict]..., acknowledged preparing to kill someone during the Ellsberg break-in "if necessary"; plotting to murder journalist Jack Anderson; plotting with a "gangland figure" to murder Howard Hunt to stop him from cooperating with investigators; plotting to firebomb the Brookings Institution; and plotting to kidnap "leftist guerillas" at the 1972 Republican National Convention -- a plan he outlined to the Nixon administration using terminology borrowed from the Nazis. ... During the 1990s, Liddy reportedly instructed his radio audience on multiple occasions on how to shoot Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms agents ....

An online video labeled "John McCain On The G. Gordon Liddy Show 11/8/07" ... McCain praised Liddy's "adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great," said he was "proud" of Liddy, and said that "it's always a pleasure for me to come on your program." ... [in 2000] McCain's campaign vouched for Liddy's "character"

Summary to here: Palin = LIAR. Obama (circle-slash) Ayers. McCain (heart) Liddy.

Now for more of the rest of the MediaMatters.ORG story:

Memo to media: The Palin rape-kit story has not been "debunked", By Eric Boehlert

... Palin issue produced the type of visceral response ignited by the revelation that while she was mayor of Wasilla, the town began charging rape victims or their insurance companies for costly emergency-room rape kits and post-assault examinations .... the conservative press and right-wing bloggers have tried so hard to knock the story down .... But facts are not a fungible commodity.

Which is to say, blow it out your LIARS orifice, Kremer. Everything you suck up that Lamebrain pulls out of his ass.


During a monologue in his October 2 broadcast, radio host Rush Limbaugh repeated NUMEROUS falsehoods about Sen. Barack Obama, including false statements about Obama's health-care plan, his legislative record, and other issues: ...

So, Jack, memorize this line to use in EVERY 1-sec time-limit to interject: "Kremer, you are LYING." (Think: 'one-mississippi')

And when you have 5-sec time-limit, use this, because it ALWAYS applies and is true: "Kremer, you are LYING to us. My source is Media Matters dot ORG. Name the source of your LIES."

You might remember the last time I called and nailed Kremer for three lies in the one sentence he spoke before taking my call, and I cited Media Matters refuting Kremer's lies, and he took it, with NO comeback, and then hit the 'Dump' button as I started to nail Kremer's LIES from earlier in his programming.

The power of MediaMatters.ORG is that it gives you a 1-stop browser 'hot'site to keep in view on your laptop during the whole show, Jack. EVERY 'topic' they bring up is already reported with the LIES of it documented; and they NEVER bring up a 'topic' outside of their LIARS bubble, (lockstep propaganda means no free-lance creative thinking), so MediaMatters covers LIARS radio completely.

Plus, MediaMatters adds some amount of pro-activism, naming the LIES by omission -- giving you 'talking points,' Jack, in what LIARS are avoiding to talk about.

--- Postscript:

Now that Kremer knows that you know the truth in MediaMatters.ORG, they are not going to let you back on the program, Jack, not anyway with your laptop. It's the same reason they screen callers, to prevent anyone appearing with truth in point of fact, from popping their bubble.

It don't matter anyhowsit, since it'll all be over by your next 'scheduled' appearance and they have managed to run out the clock on you all summer while you sat on the fence undecided about the distinction between true facts and LIARS LIES.

(In much the same manner that, for seven years, folks still fail to grasp the true understanding that what we witnessed in the facts of 3 skyscrapers' demolitions was, is, and always will be, provably IMPOSSIBLE by what we are told caused them: Gravity only.
See: TinyURL.COM/2p8kep
Nine-Eleven Op was a LIE told by massmedia; go google 911 Truth; and reflect on the millions of human lives massacred and the trillions of dollars stolen while and because hypnotized couch potatoes still can't figure the difference between LIES and factual Truth.)
