    Introducing Convicted Criminal Felon Donald Trump/Deborah “Big Red” Cotton and the American Tragedy of Race, Guns, and Violence

    Introducing Convicted Criminal Felon Donald Trump/Deborah “Big Red” Cotton and the American Tragedy of Race, Guns, and Violence

    Mark Hertsgaard is the author of seven nonfiction books, including Hot: Living through The Next Fifty Years on Earth. Hertsgaard’s reporting, essays, and other writing have appeared in such publications as The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Vanity Fair, TIME, The Nation, The Guardian, and Scientific American. He is the co-founder and executive director of Covering Climate Now.
    His new book is Big Red's Mercy: The Shooting of Deborah Cotton and a Story of Race in America.
    Mark explains how the mainstream news media’s institutional culture and failings helped to birth the Age of Trump and American neofascism and the global climate emergency. He also shares how he keeps his hope tank full and the importance of being a marathon runner and not a sprinter in these times of great challenge and peril.
    And Mark reflects on America’s tragic relationship with guns, violence, the color line, and the moral courage and witnessing of his blood sister Deborah “Big Red” Cotton and how they are forever tied together after being shot at the same second line parade in New Orleans, in what was the worst mass shooting in that great city’s modern history.
    Chauncey DeVega is compelled to walk to Trump Tower aka Trump’s Obelisk of Evil here in Chicago during a rainstorm on Saturday where he reflects on the aspiring fascist dictator and now felon being found “guilty” in his historic hush-money election interference trial, and what that may mean or not for the present and future of American democracy and society.

    From O.J. Simpson to George Floyd -- Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Baden Reflects on his Decades-Long Fight for Justice in a Broken Legal System

    From O.J. Simpson to George Floyd -- Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Baden Reflects on his Decades-Long Fight for Justice in a Broken Legal System

    Dr. Michael Baden is the former Chief Medical Examiner of New York City. He has been a medical examiner for forty-five years and has performed more than 20,000 autopsies. 
    He was the host of the HBO “Autopsy” series for thirteen years and is the author of several books including his most recent “American Autopsy: One Medical Examiner's Decades-Long Fight for Racial Justice in a Broken Legal System”.
    Dr. Baden reflects on his vocation and decades of work as a medical examiner, and how he has tried to use science and medicine to find the truth and advance the cause of justice. He also shares insights about the Michael Brown, George Floyd, and other tragic examples of police killings and murders.
    And Dr. Baden explains what it was like to be at the center of the media maelstrom that was the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial.
    Chauncey DeVega convenes The Chauncey DeVega Show Secular Church Family and engages in some critical self-reflection as he shares what he has been up to these last few very long weeks, being tired from being an only child and member of the striving working class, and how Trump Trial Time (TTT) is draining all of us who are paying attention.
    And Chauncey DeVega continues to warn about how Donald Trump is a master propagandist who is using horror politics and sadism to further radicalize his cult members during his hush-money and other criminal trials and the 2024 presidential election.
    Chauncey also explains how, like other fascists, Donald Trump is expert at using scatological politics and that his diehard MAGA people are now wearing diapers – yes, real diapers – to the Dear and Great Leader’s cult meeting-rallies as a way of demonstrating their loyalty to him and the movement.

    Glenn Kirschner Warns That Donald Trump and the Republican Party MAGA Fascists Are Trying to Murder American Democracy

    Glenn Kirschner Warns That Donald Trump and the Republican Party MAGA Fascists Are Trying to Murder American Democracy

    Glenn Kirschner is an NBC News/MSNBC on-air legal analyst and teaches criminal justice at George Washington University. He has a YouTube channel and Podcast, “Justice Matters with Glenn Kirschner.” Kirschner is also a former federal prosecutor with 30 years of trial experience. He served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia for 24 years, rising to the position of Chief of the Homicide Section. In that capacity, Kirschner supervised 30 homicide prosecutors and oversaw all homicide grand jury investigations and prosecutions in Washington, DC.
    He explains why and how Donald Trump (and his confederates) have been able to evade serious accountability for their public crime spree against American democracy and society, including the Jan. 6 coup attempt and lethal terrorist attack on the Capitol.
    Kirschner cautions that contrary to the mainstream media’s narrative that the “walls are closing in” on Donald Trump given his multiple criminal and civil trials where he may face hundreds of years in prison and hundreds of millions of dollars in fines and judgements, the reality of the situation is much more perilous and uncertain.
    He warns that Donald Trump and the Republican fascists and the larger “conservative” movement are trying to kill American democracy and will not stop until they achieve their goal of unlimited power and putting Dictator Trump in the White House.
    Chauncey DeVega missed all of you good members of The Chauncey DeVega Show Secular Church Family and shares a pathetic and frustrating tale of how he has been under attack by a severe case of cooties (likely some type of targeted assault by a customized biological weapon) these last two or so months that caused the podcast to be delayed.
    Chauncey honors and celebrates the life of the Elder God and Titan Louis Gossett Jr. who passed away on March 29 and attends a special screening of his iconic film An Officer and a Gentlemen, during which he sheds some tears and engages in some deep reflective thinking about very important things.  
    And Chauncey DeVega reviews the new films Asphalt City, Love Lies Bleeding, and Late Night With The Devil. In the interest of public health and safety – and protecting your sanity -- Chauncey also survives the movies Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire and Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire so you don’t have to.

Too Painful To Listen To

I saw an article referring to this podcast that was very critical of Trump. I thought there might actually be something substantive here. Nope. The host tells us repeatedly that Trump is the horror of all horrors, but like everyone else cannot seem to provide any actual point, just ramble on endlessly about the supposed danger. The first hour was so mindless, I decided to save the rest of humanity and write this review. Maybe someone will see it and be spared the agony.
