    Hillary has a new job


    BULLY BOY PRESS &   CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

    CRANKY CLINTON WAS SPOTTED IN RHODE ISLAND AS SHE CONTINUES HER NEW CAREER AS A STAND-IN FOR CARMEN SANDIEGO.

    REACHED FOR COMMENT, CRANKY EXPLAINED, "AT MY AGE AND WITH MY EXPERIENCE, MY PROSPECTS WERE SURPRISINGLY LIMITED.  IT WAS THIS OR WHERE'S WALDO?"


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:




    The slog that never ends.


    It's now 36 days since the operation began.

    And still it continues.


    As do the War Crimes.



    Iraqi army crimes عاجل الحشد الشيعي يعذب بوحشية المدنيون السنه النازحين من اين الاعلام من هذا الاجرام بحقنا بالعراق








    As we noted yesterday, Hayder al-Abadi went on state media Monday morning to denounce the press and human rights organizations for telling the truth.


    He doesn't want to stop the War Crimes.


    He just wants to stop the coverage of the War Crimes.

    Some very kind and strong people who care about Iraq have had faith that Hayder would change things.  I have had exchanges with them where I disagreed.

    I hope now they're beginning to grasp that (a) Hayder's no different from Nouri al-Maliki and (b) when vengeful people are put in a position with no checks or balances, they only become worse.

    James Cogan (WSWS) reports:


          
    The US-directed offensive to recapture the northern Iraqi city of Mosul and surrounding towns and villages from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has entered its fifth week.
    The assault involves an increasingly antagonistic collection of armed forces, including some 30,000 Iraqi Army troops, 15,000 peshmerga soldiers of the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG), thousands of anti-ISIS Sunni Arab and Christian fighters, Turkish Army-backed Turkomen militias, and as many as 20,000 to 30,000 Shiite militia members loyal to the fundamentalist political parties that dominate the US-backed government in Baghdad.
    The Shiite militias, known as the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), are seeking to capture the predominantly ethnic Turkomen city of Tal Afar, 60 kilometres to the west of Mosul, near the border with Syria, and cut off escape routes for ISIS forces to its Syrian capital of Raqqa. The PMF captured Tal Afar airport on November 16. In the past 24 hours, it has claimed that its fighters are on the verge of fully surrounding the city.
    The Turkish government, which proclaims itself the defender of Turkomen Iraqis, has repeated its threats to invade Iraq and attack the largely Arab Shiite militias if they “cause terror” in Tal Afar. In operations against ISIS in the western Iraqi cities of Fallujah and Ramadi, the PMF were accused of sectarian killings and abuses against Sunni civilians. To try to placate Turkey, Iraqi Army units have been dispatched to ostensibly lead any assault on Tal Afar.
    In Mosul, Iraqi government special forces claim they are slowly “clearing” ISIS fighters from the eastern suburbs, in the face of fierce resistance, and are eight kilometres from the city centre. Northern Mosul is sealed off by Kurdish pershmerga. To the south, the Iraqi Army has advanced to within 20 kilometres. The vast bulk of the city, however, is still firmly under ISIS control.
    The US military has admitted that hundreds of American personnel are on the ground and involved in the combat. British and Australian troops are also reported to be fighting alongside Iraqi units.

    US Army spokesperson Colonel John Dorrian told journalists last week that US Green Berets and other special forces personnel were “in the thick of a very tough battle.” Dorrian stated: “There’s no question that US advisors are in harms’ way... It’s not our role to take terrain or close with the enemy, but as the Iraqis move, if they need us, we’ll go where they need us.”


    US troops are in combat.

    That's the reality.

    It's the reality the Hannah Allems have chosen to ignore until after Donald Trump is sworn in.

    Then those useless 'reporters' will suddenly discover US troops are still in combat in Iraq.

    And they will be outraged.

    Outraged.

    Bill mourns Hillary's loss

    BULLY BOY PRESS &   CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

    FOLLOWING THE ELECTION, BILL CLINTON NEEDED TO SEEK SOME RELEASE.


    Is the Clinton foundation paying for the back rub. Let your imagination do the talking. 😬



    REACHED FOR COMMENT CRANKY CLINTON SAID SHE'D BEEN DEALING WITH "BIMBO ERUPTIONS" FOR YEARS AND THAT, LIKE HERPES, THERE IS NO CURE.


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:



    A state of emergency has been declared in Baghdad, Hit and Haditha as attacks from the Islamic State are anticipated.

    This follows the bombing of a wedding late  yesterday.  BBC NEWS notes the bombing took place in Ameriyat al-Falluja and that it left at least 17 people dead in this area of south of Falluja where locals "have joined a Sunni tribal militia which has been fighting IS [the Islamic State]."



    Aftermath of attack targeting a wedding in Amryat Al smood in Al anbar province tonight , 15 killed and tens of wounded civilians.
     






    Alsumaria reminds  Falluja witnessed 2 car bombings on Monday which left 9 dead and twenty-six people injured.  AL JAZEERA updates the death toll from the wedding bombing today to 40 dead with sixty more injured.  BBC also points out, "In June, Iraqi forces declared Falluja 'fully liberated' from IS after more than a month of heavy fighting."  Earlier this week a member of Anbar's Provincial Council spoke with AL MADA newspaper about the situation in Falluja, noting that residents are returning daily but that provision of goods and services had yet to reach a sustainable level.


    Which brings us to the slog that is liberating or 'liberating' Mosul -- now on day 32.  AP reveals, "As the operation to retake Mosul enters its second month on Thursday, Iraqi forces are preparing for prolonged, grueling urban combat. "



    Iraqi forces recapture key air base near from






    Of that effort, Wael Grace (AL MADA) reports that a decision was made on priorities -- taking the airport or protecting the people.  The airport won out.  Military leadership decided that the airport was more important to ensure air cover.

    How this makes sense, no one stops to ask.

    The Islamic State -- whose highest estimated number in Iraq has been 30,000 -- has no helicopters, has no airplanes.  They do have drones.  But you don't need an airport to handle drones.

    Most likely, the airport won out because (a) the lives of civilians are of so very little importance to the government of Iraq (Mosul was seized by the Islamic State in June of 2014 and only now, as the year 2016 ends, does the government send in fighters) and (b) with all the desertions in the military taking place during this operation they needed a big (and easy) step that would result in headlines and conceal what a sorry and unsuccessful operation this has been thus far.

    While the Islamic State has no war planes, ALL IRAQ NEWS notes that Iraq received four more F-16s from the US.


    AFP's W.G. Dunlop Tweets:



    Battle for Iraq's Mosul far from over but PM & Kurds already publicly at odds on post-Mosul territorial control






    As the slog continues, there is great rejoicing that the Iraqi forces have taken a piece of Tal Afar.

    ALL IRAQ NEWS notes that announcement and includes a photo.  Examining the photo of empty space all around, one wonders exactly what was re-taken (a vacant lot)?

    Cranky Clinton steps out in public

    BULLY BOY PRESS &   CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE


    LOOKING LIKE A HAGGARD JON VOIGHT, CRANKY CLINTON SHOWED UP TONIGHT AT A CHILDREN'S DEFENSE FUND GALA/FUNDRAISER.


    CRANKY PROVED SHE MEANT "NEVER GIVE UP" AS THE EVENING CAME TO AN END AND SHE DEMANDED HER CUT.

    TOLD THE FUNDRAISER WAS FOR CHARITY, CRANKY BARKED, "I AM THE F**KING CLINTON FOUNDATION!  HAND IT OVER!"

    SHE WAS ESCORTED ABOUT BY SECURITY AND, LATER, SMOKING A BENSON & HEDGES IN THE PARKING LOT, CRANKY EXPLAINED, "IT'S MY FAULT.  I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN TO GET THE MONEY UP FRONT.  IT'S THE FIRST THING ANY PROSTITUTE LEARNS."


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:

    Starting with the US election so many of us were tired of before it happened and remain tired of now. There are real issues effecting lives right now and it's must be so very nice to be an American citizen unconcerned with the wars your government is currently actively carrying out.


    The ridiculous Angelina Chapin (HUFFINGTON POST) tries to pretend she's a feminist (she's not) and ties criticism of War Hawk, corporatist and scandal magnet Hillary Clinton to sexism:

    I think every liberal woman has broken down at some point in the past week.  For me, it was at 2 a.m. on Wednesday when I called my boyfriend and wept.



    If you think every liberal woman cried, then you're not only a bad columnist, you live in a tiny and terrifying bubble.

    As Demi Moore said THE BUTCHER'S WIFE, "Well you ought to get out more."

    Angelina goes on to whine that Hillary has "30 years of political experience."

    No, she has 12 years -- she was a US senator for 8, she was Secretary of State for 12.  First Lady is not political experience.  Especially now that women have opportunities, we no longer need to pretend that 'woman behind the man' is experience.

    And non-feminist Hillary sneered so at First Lady that she insisted she would give Bill things to do as First Spouse so that he wouldn't have to plan dinners, etc.  In other words, Hillary said, "That's women's work."  And only a few of us feminists took the time to call her out on it.

    She takes Thomas Frank to task for calling Hillary a "party hack."  I'm no fan of Thomas Franks (I hope I've been fair to him but I'm not a fan of his).  But Thomas Frank's criticism of Hillary did not begin today, this month or even this year.  And it has nothing to do with sexism.

    Were Angelina a feminist, she'd grasp that.  But she's just another whiner trying to play the woman card to get her way.

    She insists that "when you inflict your analysis on a woman who is devastated that Americans just elected a man who considers her subhuman, you are being sexist.  Plain and simple."

    Angelina, grow the f**k up.

    Plain and simple.

    Crawl back, crying, to your safe space, try to create the illusion of being in the womb if it helps.

    But stop kidding that you're about feminism.

    Women want to run for political office (and have and are).

    There's no "Oh, but it's a girl so shut up with the criticism."

    That's not feminism.

    That's sexist.

    We can handle it.

    We get pushed around and pushed down every day.  Like many Americans.

    And we get back up.

    And we pull ourselves together and we go on.

    If we want to compete in political races, we can't whine, "Oh, the results hurt my tender little girl bits and feelings so nobody can say anything!!!!"

    People can say whatever they want, first of all, in a democracy.

    Second of all, you need to grow the hell up and you need to toughen the hell up.

    I'm embarrassed, as a feminist, that you chose to publish that crap.

    Big Dawg plots his fun

    BULLY BOY PRESS &   CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

    "I CAN'T WAIT FOR FEBRUARY 20TH," BIG DAWG BILL CLINTON REVEALED TO US.

    WHY?

    ANOTHER BIG SPEECH TO WALL STREET?

    A HOT NEW INGENUE WILLING TO LET HIM PUT HIS CIGAR ANYWHERE?

    NOPE: PRESIDENT'S DAY.

    "IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CRUEL," HE TOLD US, "TO RUB IT IN TODAY.  BUT COME FEBRUARY, WHEN THAT DAY ROLLS AROUND, I'LL BE LIKE 'HONEY, LET'S GO GET SOME NEW FURNITURE.  LET'S GO TO ONE OF THE ME SALES -- ME COZ I WAS PRESIDENT.  NOT A YOU SALE BECAUSE THIS ISN'T ALMOST PRESIDENT'S DAY.'  ONLY ONE PRESIDENT IN THIS FAMILY.  YOU FELL ME?"


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:



    It was a huge mistake to nominate Hillary -- an Iraq War supporter.

    Could we not see what happened repeatedly in England?

    Did Labour get to maintain it's hold?

    Nope.

    Hillary voted for the war.

    It is an issue for many, many of us.

    It was an issue for many British citizens.


    For more on failed candidate Hillary Clinton, you can see "So, uh, we weren't with her? (Ava and C.I.)" from earlier today.
