Close to half a million children and two million mothers in Yemen are at risk of dying from severe acute malnutrition due to the ongoing conflict., UN OCHA/Giles Clarke

  • Whatever happened to Jamal Khashoggi … is … a painful reminder of the selective nature of international outrage that the death of a single, well-connected Saudi Arabian journalist was able to spark a conversation which the deaths of thousands of Yemeni civilians could not.
  • The murder of Jamal Khashoggi has forced new scrutiny of the Saudi role in the world’s greatest humanitarian crisis. But, despite calls for a Yemen ceasefireandother posturing, no Western country has pledged to end arms sales to the kingdom.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Trump%20Mocks%20Disabled%20NY%20Times%20Reporter_0.jpgOctober 24, 2018 | The press gave primo coverage to Donald Trump’s outrageous utterances during the 2016 Republican presidential primaries because, well, he was a front-runner, and when front-runners speak, it’s news. After Trump secured the Republican nomination, the press gave similar notice to his tongue-wagging because—well, because it believes every trill and chirrup from a major-party nominee contains news value. Later, when Trump became president and the press continued to steer his tweets, White House lawn utterances, and MAGA-rally speeches onto Page 1, the justification for the saturation coverage was that no matter what strange noise flowed out of the president’s boombox, it was newsworthy and deserved ink and airtime.

And here we are, 21 months into his presidency, and Trump still reaps maximum exposure every time he says something cruel, improbable, or daft. Take his weekend promise to bestow a 10 percent tax cut on middle-class Americans before the midterm elections. Congress is out of session and nobody on Capitol Hill or inside the administration knew anything about the proposal—making passage on Trump’s timetable impossible. But that didn’t prevent the press corps from placing all of its oars in the water and rowing hard to take first place in the race to prove the president’s pitch a fantasy.

Part 1: Trump Snubbed McCain. The Media Snubbed the Rest of Us.

The media treated Trump's petty snub of John McCain as a bigger controversy than the $717 billion Pentagon bill named for the Arizona senator.

Peter Certo, In Other Words

August 15, 2018 | On an otherwise sleepy August day, President Trump signed the John McCain National Defense Authorization Act. Named for the dying Arizona senator who’s championed military budgets for his entire career, the bill increases U.S. military spending to an astonishing $717 billion.

According to my Institute for Policy Studies colleague Lindsay Koshgarian, that’s about double what American taxpayers were spending at the end of the Cold War, and upwards of $300 billion more than what we spent before the War on Terror.

Trump’s rationale for going easy on Saudi Arabia is a shameful lie.


Paul Krugman, New York (NY) Times

October 22, 2018 | A few days ago, Pat Robertson, the evangelical leader, urged America not to get too worked up about the torture and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, because we shouldn’t endanger “$100 billion in arms sales.” I guess he was invoking the little-known 11th Commandment, which says, “On the other hand, thou shalt excuse stuff like killing and bearing false witness if weapons deals are at stake.”
O.K., it’s not news that the religious right has prostrated itself at Donald Trump’s feet. But Trump’s attempt to head off retaliation for Saudi crimes by claiming that there are big economic rewards to staying friendly with killers — and the willingness of his political allies to embrace his logic — nonetheless represents a new stage in the debasement of America.
