When the news get too depressing these are the books to read.

Now, where can one find happiness? Always a good place to start is: anywhere a good, sound couple of laughs wash away the alternative, of course. And each of the Tricky Headlines eBooks holds hundreds and hundreds of laughs for the having. Here you can enjoy the hilarious, definitely not politically correct (PC) quips, comments, and invariably irreverent observations of/by S D Rodrian on today's news headlines collected in this ever continuing series of books intended most especially of all for the latest eReaders out there (each & every available tablet, computer, and iPhone you can buy).

In a world of serious, sad, and even quite tragic circumstances (a world in which about the greatest need is & always will remain the need for laughter), humor always is the point of departure here... ever the abiding goal of these forthright takes on today's so very truly tricky headlines.

Israel has a life-or-death interest in Syria, while Russia has no interest whatever outside of parading Putin's puny balls before a snickering world. Is that what the Russians really seek: a nuclear exchange with a tiny country with which it need never have any conflicts whatever?! Even if a first strike takes out all of Israel, Russia with undoubtedly face a fatal rain of nukes (probably well over a 100 from parts of the earth Russia would never dream possible for a small nation like Israel)... a rain of death which won't even leave Russian cockroaches alive there. And for what? So a shirtless Putin can get on his horsy and imagine that he's as big a tyrant as Stalin ever was?!? At some point the Russian People are going to have to wake up and realize Putin & his gang of thugs are leading them down a path of pointless death.

Now, one would imagine that after the historic debacle of Persia pointlessly invading the tiny country of Greece with an army of two million men (ordered by Darius, their 'Great' God back then), and which eventually let to the annihilation of the Persian nation by that same handful of Greeks... one would imagine that modem day Iranians would have the sense to say no to the pointless order of their current 'Great' God [whatever] to destroy the tiny country of Israel. But, no, apparently modern day Persians never learned the lessons of their own history. So now (not for their benefit, I'm afraid) that same lesson will have to be re-taught to them once again.

Giuliani says Trump probably has the constitutional power to pardon himself

This means Trump can make himself king: Let's say he makes himself king. That's a crime, sure, but he pardons himself, so he stays king. Then he makes himself emperor and makes the Republican state governors kings, while the Democrat state governors lose their heads. So now we have The American Empire. Add some lead pipes to the DC water system and the first 12 American emperors end up as insane as Trump; after which the American Empire falls and we get the Dark Ages... finally culminating with the Renaissance! Might not be a bad idea at that.

President Trump Thinks He Is a King

Presidents aren’t kings. Someone should tell Trump’s legal team.

Yes: A Constitutional Amendment. Evidently, what we most desperately need [and I mean RIGHT NOW] is a Constitutional Amendment which specifies under which circumstances (if any) a sitting president of the United States may pardon himself. Only then will we be safe from a LEGAL coup by a sitting president against the American government. [Present company NOT excepted.]

Trump’s legal team readies for showdown with Mueller, even as the president touts powers

Giuliani's media blitz is merely part of preparing the defense of a criminal defendant: This bluff is a classical requirement for lawyers with a client they know is about to be indicted--If Trump were not a criminal defendant there would be no need whatever to be talking about his "being above the law" or "it not being possible to put the shackles on him" or "to indict him and throw him in prison." [Giuliani, in fact, just asserted that his client could shoot somebody and get off scot-free.] The only reason we have all this talk is because Trump's attorneys are setting up the defense of a criminal defendant who should have long ago resigned and who's only remaining president because he needs to use his position as president to stay out of prison. This is what all this media blitz by Trump's criminal lawyers is about: Trying to intimidate the law into not charging their client. If Donald Trump were not a criminal and therefore in no jeopardy of being detained by the law what need would there be for his criminal defense team to be talking up Trump being untouchable by the law?!...

Nothing says innocent like Trump trying to convince Mueller that he can pardon himself.

Giuliani: Mueller’s team is ‘trying very, very hard to frame’ Trump

The notion that Mueller is such a reprehensible villainous criminal as to be engaging in the frame-up of an innocent man is so out of touch with reality that it could only have originated in an unsound mind; and so it leaves no doubt Giuliani himself was NOT the one who came up with this harebrained libel against Mueller: No, if anything, this attack is but one sad demonstration of Giuliani's willingness to sell all his principles for whatever he's getting or he hopes to get from Trump. [Hope it's enough. And that Trump doesn't stiff him.]

Both Chris Christie and George Bush can rest happy tonight.

Democrats intensify fight for immigrant children — and bash Trump, GOP ahead of midterms

I am almost certainly sure that once Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi understand just how god-awful Trump's hostage taking of the little kids from their parents is making the Republicans look Chuck & Nancy will RUSH to hand over all the ransom money Trump's asking for... and probably even a fully fueled getaway (to Mar-a-Lago) airplane too for the entire GOP kidnapping gang to take off in with the loot.

Trump aggravates immigration judges’ problems with tweet opposing Constitution

The staggering difference between these Trump criminals and previous criminal politicos is that the Trump criminals (including Trump himself) don't ever try to hide the fact that they're committing crimes! You can't tell if it's because they're THAT stupid or because they know that they've already overwhelmed The Law & no longer have anything to fear from her.

Trump says Mueller’s appointment was unconstitutional. Is he right?

WOMP WOMP: Sessions Says It’s ‘Painful’ Hearing Christians Condemn Him

Then maybe he should opt for the "much preferable" situation of being a child ripped from its mother's arms at his orders.

Fox News host’s ‘not our kids’ statement, and the limits of compassion

The level of inhumanity that the Trump administration (and its mere presence on the scene) has let loose upon this nation is really staggering. How far away are we at this moment really from being given permission to inflict as much harm and outrage on "others" as those concentration camp guards who after mercilessly torturing and murdering inmate children all day long would go home to the warm hugs & tender kisses of their own loving families!

The United States of America is too strong to be destroyed from without: It can only be destroyed from within. There is no reason for Trump's trade war with our allies. There is no reason for Trump's battles against our American institutions of law & order, trade unions, social security safety nets, our everyday common decency & charity towards those who through no fault of their own have fallen on hard times. There is no reason for Trump's total & complete capitulation to North Korea, whose main product everybody knows is betrayal:

Report: North Korea Boosting Production Of Nuclear Weapons Fuel At Secret Sites

There is no reason for Trump's war against every hard won American value which we've prized so dearly up to now. Zero. Except a single foreboding one: Putin's obsession with humbling, diminishing, or even destroying The United States of America. And his certainly knowing that he could only do that by inserting into the American government itself a president who would do from within exactly what Donald Trump is doing to America right now.

Trump is bent on wrecking NATO. Prepare for catastrophe.

The best thing I can say to the citizens of the United States in these times of peril is that if it quacks like a duck, then you'd better start looking at the very real possibility that Trump might indeed be a treasonous Putin agent whom he has engineered [by whatever KGB designs] into the presidency specifically to undermine everything for which America justly stands. And so you had all better start looking into this possibility sooner rather than later, America. Or we are lost.

I predict that the upcoming 2018 midterm elections will be forever known as the elections of lies, lies & more lies--and that the Trump Republicans are already planning a blitz of lies the likes of which we've never before seen: If the Democrats do not see this coming & fully prepare for it NOW they are going to be blindsided & blow away... and once again left by the wayside in a repeat of recent history.

Tiptoe over Margaret Sullivan's Instead of Trump’s propaganda, how about a nice ‘truth sandwich’?

Or go read Micah Halpern's Little chance for a democratic Palestine and learn there maybe "a little" about what might be going on right here right now in these United States right under your stuffed nose.

Trump longs to establish his own American kleptocracy. And there will only still be a few choice moments when he might be stopped. But it will require American patriots with great strength of character and unquestioned courage to stop his unmaking our hard-won democracy.

What Trump all too transparently wants is to browbeat Sessions into resigning so he can short-circuit the Mueller Investigation before it puts him where he so justly & rightfully belongs [in the slammer].

Bullies are all cowards at heart. So let's see whether Jeff Sessions proves once again the bully's rule of cowardice by validating it or by the exception: People who are as viciously merciless & heartless as Jeff Sessions has been to the miserably defenceless souls trying to find shelter from the unspeakable horrors after them by running across our borders (horrors which should raise every human being's highest urge to put an end to them), those cruel bullies usually become such thugs because their souls are putrefied and polluted by racism--Trump said: "The United States will not be a migrant camp, and it will not be a refugee holding facility." But everywhere the entire history of this country shows us over & over every time that it is exactly these refugees, and refugees exactly like them, that are the people who have most contributed and who would contribute the most to making and keeping this America of ours "great" before the nations of the earth: What person living or who has ever lived in this land was not either himself a migrant or a descendant of them? Not one single one. Not one: We are all migrants.

Democratic Senator On Christine Blasey Ford: ‘I Believe Her’

The very least a public servant ought to do is to give the benefit of the doubt to those who report that they are the victims of a crime.

It is the essence of law enforcement (and thus of society itself).

Anywhere law enforcement decides beforehand that anyone accused of a crime is more trustworthy/believable than anyone who reports the crime--there the wind-tossed fragile fabric of civil and civic society has been irreparably ripped forever.

For any public official whatever to give the benefit of the doubt to those who have been accused of a crime (before a full investigation has concluded) is a perversion of society. And it can only serve to move such a society closer to the dark side than to the side of righteousness.

The Supreme Court nominee's high school yearbook is a "minefield," said one Democratic senator.

But though I myself have read them, it is not really all that necessary that you put yourself through that too--unless, of course, you wish to find out whether my outrageous make of them might perhaps also be accurate (or just plain nuts).
