Marco Travaglio - Il Pompiere della Sera

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, tooIn Italy journalism is long-gone, and that’s a fact. And so? So greetings to Marco Travaglio and his video-column Passaparola, which arrives at the 100th installment today by picking holes in that pathetic tool of the soft propaganda that is Corriere della Sera. Which would be the “most authoritative newspaper of Italy”. Just ridiculous…

Marco Travaglio - Il più amato dagli italiani (The most beloved by Italians)

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too Taken from the Voglio Scendere blog as usual. Now more than ever, even though I don’t always agree with the opinions he expresses, I completely support Marco Travaglio’s work. Many rejoiced when they saw Silvio Berlusconi’s face covered in blood on YouTube, I cheered much less than I had expected by myself. Then berluscones managed to make me dismiss the desire for human mercy for a wretch considering himself as a god, while then he pays prostitutes to spend a night in company and takes iron sculptures in his face. It’s sad, more than disgusting.

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too I’m starting to be tired of the logical accuracy of Travaglio’s reasoning, because by following his chronicles you end up being afore two possibilities: either you get a machine gun and make a trip to Palazzo Chigi (where the government is) to give Berlusconi some of that “civil war” he babbles about in front of the cameras, or you stay behind the screen by sending out a silent scream of wrath against these pieces of shit. Luckily tomorrow TV will switch to the DTT system in Campania, maybe RAI won’t be accessible anymore and I will return to intensely think about my two obsessions, ie computers and pretty chicks. Because there will be many other occasions in the future to get angry about that Berlusconi mafioso…

Marco Travaglio - Il primo Capo di Stato che parla ha fatto l’uovo

November 23, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Politics & Society · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too Maybe I’m not that old to remember of many former Presidents of Republic, but it hardly seems to me to have memories about a useless notary like Giorgio Napolitano. A president which guarantees only the caste of privileged villains he belongs to, ie politicians and mafiosos that, as nasty moths, plague the Parliament by wearing its seats down with their fat asses tired for the too much nothingness they do from the morning till the evening. Napolitano has no televisions and (maybe) doesn’t frequent either whores or transsexuals, but he isn’t so much better than Silvio Berlusconi when it comes to damage the rule of law in Italy.

Marco Travaglio - Berluschino il breve (Berluschino the short)

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too One thing lackeys of the psycho-pathetic Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi don’t lack surely is imagination: they try everything to take their boss out of troubles, even if they have to overturn an already very fragile judiciary system lacking the essential resources to answer to citizens’ need for justice. It’s obviously easy then to say that the magistrature doesn’t work after having turned it into a ghost with years of absurd laws, people have poor memory and by continuously repeating that in Italy judges and magistrates are the problem more than one comes to believe it.

Marco Travaglio - Piano B.: non finire in carcere (Plan B.: don’t go to jail)

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too How what was a major Western democracy - even with the Italian vices we all know - can die? It ends up that people don’t even notice it because they are too busy at watching tv serials on extended families or formats where one gets the money in exchange for broadcasting one’s own guts. And I’m not talking by hearsay, I’m describing my own family here and the reactions, nay the lack of reactions by my mother and my sister. Mothers and sisters (and perhaps fathers too) of Italy are too busy at doing some other business (my sister has to marry in the upcoming months) to notice what Silvio Berlusconi is doing to justice, the Constitution and to the Italian Republic on the whole.

Marco Travaglio - Una Repubblica fondata sul ricatto (A Republic based on blackmail)

November 7, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Politics & Society · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too My PC burnt up, but Travaglio’s weekly appointments always deserve the same consideration and spreading. Seeing what happens in Italy in this period, anyway, I tend to think that the usual declination of the world “power”, so often used for sordid and wretched criminals like Silvio Berlusconi, loses a large part of its meaning when you discover that this power is actually corresponding to a huge weakness made up by secret vices, whores, coke and mafioso friends grasping you by your balls.

Marco Travaglio - Sic Trans Gloria Marrazzo

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too The left-wing is dead, I was writing some days ago, and it’s more and more like the right wing. Actually the only thing that seems to remain alive in it is the brain in the underpants of these embarrassing powerful men with no dignity, which devote themselves to vices and then maybe, instead of denouncing the extortion, they even say “thanks” to Daddy Silvio (Berlusconi) that warns them about the compromising video clip because he can get to everything and everyone. Nowadays Italy would be ridiculous if it wasn’t so tragic.

Marco Travaglio - Il randello catodico-mafioso (The cathodic-mafioso club)

October 19, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Politics & Society · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too No sooner said than done: after the Constitutional Court verdict which rejected the Alfano arbitration and, above all, the one from judge Mesiano on the huge 750 million euros fine for the theft of publishing house Mondadori which harmed De Benedetti, “Daddy” Silvio Berlusconi has gone nuts and incited his servants-dogs-lackeys against his new enemies. Marco Travaglio’s report on Mesiano righteous doing is unobjectionable, the results of the TV persecution against the judge are ridiculous and counterproductive thus far. But there’s plenty of time to get worse…

Marco Travaglio - Il lodo dei quadrumani (The quadrumanous-written arbitration)

October 12, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Politics & Society · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too The Constitutional Court has finally stated the plain obvious thing, ie that an unconstitutional law like the “Alfano arbitration” is unconstitutional. This naturally won’t change a thing in practice, on the contrary everything gets worse because Silvio “Pompetta” Berlusconi will now try anything to make everyone pay before justice make him pay for his wrongdoings. Anyway I already realized it some time ago, Giorgio “O’ Bravo Presidente” Napolitano is an amorphous nothingness guaranteeing only himself, the status quo and this criminal politicians class of which he is a worthy and distinguished representative.

Marco Travaglio - O lodo, o carcere (Or arbitration, or jail)

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too And so finally came the time for the much awaited Constitutional Court judgment on the legitimacy of the “Alfano arbitration”. But considering how much and what kind of perversions of the so called Institutions one is forced to see in this decay of the Italian democracy, I’m asking myself, what is the sense of such a nonsense (ie to establish the unconstitutionality of something that is already obviously unconstitutional) compared to the utter lack of sense of all the rest?

Marco Travaglio - Lo scudo delinquenziale (The pro-criminal shield)

September 28, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Politics & Society · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too I pleasantly record that, despite the new adventure of il Fatto Quotidiano (on which I hope to write down within a few days), Marco Travaglio continues to attend his Monday afternoon Passaparola columns as usual. Actually the subjects never lack, and talking about the fiscal shield for abroad funds return it’s always an (unpleasant) surprise to see how the Arcore mafioso clan is able, thanks to media asphyxial control, to put together “economy morality” and the pardon for mafiosos and cammorists willing to bring back home the offspring of their lucrative businesses. Only in Italy.

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too I already said I’m persuaded that Berlusconi and his most trustworthy thugs will survive this time too, and the latest Palermo events confirm my belief: at the time of Falcone there was Corrado Carnevale nicknamed “the verdict killer”, now faces have changed (Carnevale has been promoted to the Constitutional Court) but what remains the same is the State permeability to the anti-state that mafia and its presumed (but very likely) political puppeteers are.

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too After the forced absence during the previous installment of his column Passaparola, Marco Travaglio returns in video and starts again to carefully report what will be the outcome of the almost forthcoming hot season of the clash between the clan of presumed (but very likely) mafioso Silvio Berlusconi and that part of Italy that can still be considered a civil country. I’m ready to bet 10 to 1 that Papi will survive this time too.

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too While newspapers columns spread ink remembering a mean little television man passed away, the television made by the live continues to offer shining examples of the shit housing there. Says Michele Santoro on his program’s site that “a few days before the start television continues to not inform the public about Annozero opening date. Thus I’m asking you to send the ads we have prepared and that aren’t broadcasted by the network to all of your friends and contacts on the Internet “.

Marco Travaglio - L’olio di ricino in edicola (Castor oil in kiosks)

September 7, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Politics & Society · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too This week Marco Travaglio is out of the video - the reporter says he is recovering from a surgical operation, hence the new installment of column Passaparola is just textual. What remains unchanged is Travaglio’s punctuality in telling the manifest decay of Italian democracy toward Berlusconian nothingness and who knows what after that. However to read every time about servants ready to put out compromising dossiers on their boss enemies, deviated secret services and fascist filing is starting to be too much even for an obsessive guy like myself.

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too Why they feel so comfortable, boss Berlusconi’s servants, about being so shamelessly servants and prone to any of his mood/desire/degenerate synaptic path? Really I can’t understand, at least until I struggle to start from the idea that the aforementioned servants are persuaded about the fact that they need to line up with the strongest to survive, because being too much weak to be humans they prefer to be worms and squelch through shit for their entire life rather than facing reality for what it is.

Marco Travaglio - Verità di Stato e verità di mafia (State truth and mafia truth)

August 25, 2009 · Filed Under Babel fish, Politics & Society · Comment 

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too It’s true that sooner or later even the worst will have a limit, and that this devastated country will have to face the Truth of History, something that doesn’t air with the eight o’clock TV news and sees Silvio Berlusconi and his equals as the criminals that they are. Clarified this, I’m not that hopeful as Travaglio is on the possibility that someone of those who know will start to talk soon. Maybe it’s because currently I’ve lost a bit of the ability to imagine the future, but for what I can see by miself this dunghill of mafioso rulers could still go on for a long time.

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too The real Italian communists, those gone extinct a few years ago, were disgusting because they were funded by the real Russian communists, those who wiped out opposers and compensated their clear sexual shortcomings with giant missiles in parades. The modern grandchildren of the Italian communists, those who call themselves “Democratic Party” causing a generalized hilarity, are horrendous because they behave like the worst among capitalists. They play with finance, seize banks, boat and then they talk about the “workers’ sacrifices” with their stomach and wallet full. If these are the best “alternative” to Psycho-Viagra (Silvio Berlusconi) I am Jesus Christ incarnate.
