Pence hits her with a truth bomb

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

CRANKY CLINTON'S IN MORE HOT WATER FOR HER PAY-FOR-PLAY DAYS AS SECRETARY OF STATE WHERE SHE'D MEET WITH YOU IF YOU DONATED TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION.

IT'S SUCH A SCANDAL THAT CRANKY'S DECLARED SHE WILL STOP TAKING FOREIGN CONTRIBUTIONS IF SHE SHOULD BECOME PRESIDENT.

DONALD TRUMP'S RUNNING MATE MIKE PENCE COMMENTED, "APPARENTLY SHE'LL HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST WITH THE CLINTON FOUNDATION IF SHE BECOMES PRESIDENT BUT I GUESS SHE DIDN'T HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST TAKING FOREIGN DONATIONS WHILE SHE WAS SECRETARY OF STATE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."

THIS PROMPTED BIG DAWG BILL CLINTON TO SQUEAL, "OOOH, BURN!  HE GOT HER GOOD!  I HAVEN'T SEEN HER SO MAD SINCE SHE FOUND OUT ABOUT MONICA."


FROM THE TCI WIRE:




Today, THE DAYTONA BEACH NEWS-JOURNAL notes, "In operations related to Iraq, a total of 4,506 members of the U.S. military have died. Another 32,263 U.S. service personnel have been wounded in action."  And, also today, the US Defense Dept announced:




Strikes in Iraq
Bomber and fighter aircraft conducted nine strikes in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of Iraq’s government:

-- Near Baghdadi, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL vehicle.

-- Near Kisik, two strikes struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL fighting position and suppressed two ISIL mortar firing positions.

-- Near Mosul, two strikes struck an ISIL bed down location and destroyed 39 ISIL oil tanker trucks and two ISIL vehicles.

-- Near Qayyarah, a strike destroyed two ISIL mortar systems, five ISIL assembly areas, an ISIL bulldozer, two ISIL rocket rails, an ISIL rocket system and suppressed an ISIL mortar firing position and an ISIL tactical unit.

-- Near Ramadi, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL mortar system.

-- Near Sinjar, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL assembly area.

-- Near Sultan Abdallah, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit.


Task force officials define a strike as one or more kinetic events that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative, effect. Therefore, officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIL vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against buildings, vehicles and weapon systems in a compound, for example, having the cumulative effect of making those targets harder or impossible for ISIL to use. Accordingly, officials said, they do not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike.


In other violence, AFP reports:

A technician with an Iraqi satellite channel was killed on Saturday and a journalist wounded as they covered operations against ISIS in western Iraq, their employer said.

Both worked for Al Ahad TV, a channel affiliated with Asaib Ahl al-Haq, one of the most powerful Shiite militias in Iraq’s Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary umbrella.


The pair were hit by mortar fire in Jazirat al-Khaldiyeh in the western province of Anbar.

    Cranky practices culture appropriation!

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

    DID CRANKY CLINTON JUST CALL COLIN POWELL "SATAN"?

    IT APPEARS SHE DID.

    HER EXCUSE FOR HER E-MAILS SCANDALS NOW?

    THE COLIN POWELL MADE HER DO IT!!!!

    CRANKY IS FAR TOO FAT TO BE GERALDINE JONES.

    BUT WE DO LOOK FORWARD TO HER NEXT SAYING "WHEN YOU'RE HOT, YOU'RE HOT" -- BIG SNAP AND WAVE OF THE HAND -- "WHEN YOU'RE NOT, YOU'RE NOT."



    FROM THE TCI WIRE:



    To defend Hillary, a new push has emerged: "Rape is okay!!!!"

    Writer Liza Featherston (author of FALSE CHOICES: THE FAUX FEMINISM OF HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON) notes this disgusting and disappointing trend in a series of Tweets and reTweets:



    1. Yup. I thought they'd just ignore the Bill rape stuff, not create a "woke rapist" trope.



    Sometimes I think ppl in One PIerrepont Plaza must read these media apologetics, snicker: CAN YOU BELIEVE WE ARE NOT EVEN PAYING THESE PPL



    I expected Woke Tim Kaine. Nothing HRC does is shocking, it's the creative intellectual gymnastics of her supporters that continue to amaze.



    I did not expect that to get behind idea of defeating Trump, we'd be asked to believe in crazy Russian conspiracies, rape apologetics.



    These people recoil at "lesser evil" frame. Offended by the very idea Clintons could be "evil" and will not stand for it.



    I expected to often agree with Democrats, once primary was over. Hey, Trump sucks amiright? But still with the most ridiculous commentary!



    What's the single most reactionary position we can get Hillary supporters to defend before the primaries end?



    I predict...male prerogative to rape and still be a feminist. Throwing poor women off welfare. War. OH WAIT...



    How to be a male feminist ally: schedule a post-rape phone call to unpack & apologize.



    Feminism is a big tent. But I didn't know it had seating section for rapists.



    If you're writing think pieces saying that it's OK if Bill Clinton is a rapist pls ask yourself where you went wrong in your life.






    Liza's got the Tweet of the week with the last one:  "If you're writing think pieces saying that it's OK if Bill Clinton is a rapist pls ask yourself where you went wrong in your life."

    A puppet


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


    CRANKY CLINTON'S ASS PUPPET JOSHUA HOLLAND DEFENDS HER AT THE NATION BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT ASS PUPPETS DO -- THEY WHINE AND THEY LIE AND THEY WASTE OUR TIME.

    REACHED FOR COMMENT, HOLLAND REPLIED, "FFFFFFFFFFPPPPPPHHHHHHHHTTTTT!"

    HE WAS TALKING OUT HIS ASS YET AGAIN.


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:


    The press treats Iraq as static because it benefits their political heroes.

    It doesn't benefit the truth.

    But that's how empire works.

    Do you really think, at the height of the British Empire, reporters were telling the truth about how this was being done to enrich a few?

    Reporters are whores, they just usually fail to satisfy the customers -- so they're bad whores.

    And they so pollute the system that when a few real reporters try to cover a story there's no way not to make mistakes.


    It was way too hard...it was way too tough...
    On this she had not bargained
    But she was like some missionary dancing to the beat of some
    man's ancient drum
    And she tries hard to tell this story...but it's a hard one to tell
    She consults her book of Miracles...
    Cry...and the wind says fly on
    Well now you're on your own
    You're back out on the road again for a million reasons
    Well you're back out on the road again
    And you try to tie together some connections...
    You get some ribbons and some bows and get back out on the road again

    -- "Juliet," written by Stevie Nicks, first appears on her album THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR




    It's a hard story to tell.


    But Jeff Gerth (PROPUBLICA) and Joby Warrick (WASHINGTON POST) team up in an attempt at it:

    A week before the last U.S. soldiers left his country in December 2011, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki traveled to Washington to meet the team that would help shape Iraq’s future once the troops and tanks were gone.
    Over dinner at the Blair House, guest quarters for elite White House visitors since the 1940s, the dour Iraqi sipped tea while Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke of how her department’s civilian experts could help Iraqis avoid a return to terrorism and sectarian bloodshed.

    Iraq would see a “robust civilian presence,” Clinton told reporters afterward, summing up the Obama administration’s pledges to Maliki. “We are working to achieve that,” she said.

    Less than three years later, the relatively calm Iraq that Maliki had led in 2011 was gone. The country’s government was in crisis, its U.S.-trained army humiliated, and a third of its territory overrun by fighters from the Islamic State. Meanwhile, State Department programs aimed at helping Iraqis prevent such an outcome had been slashed or curtailed, and some had never materialized at all.


    It's a strong article.

    It's also an incomplete article.

    It paints Hillary correctly as wanting a US presence in Iraq.

    Where it fails is rushing to the White House slashing the program -- and the why of it.

    As 2012, progresses, the White House walks further and further away from Iraq.

    That's 2012.

    In October 2011, the State Dept takes over the US mission in Iraq.

    Where is that in the article?

    And where in the article does it note the 2011 performance of the State Dept to Congress?

    Congress is over the money.

    And Congress wanted to know what the US mission in Iraq was.

    Have we all forgotten that?

    We can offer dozens of hearings that we covered in real time but let's go to the December 1, 2011 snapshot which covered the November 30th hearing of the  House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East ans South Asia.

    Can anyone stand her?

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


    WAR HAWK CRANKY CLINTON HAD A DOUBLE DIGIT LEAD SCREAMED THE CORPORATE MEDIA ALL LAST WEEK!!!!!

    BUT . . .

    A REUTERS POLL OUT FRIDAY FOUND CRANKY AT 41% AND DONALD TRUMP AT 36%.

    THAT'S ONLY A 5% LEAD.

    AND WITH A +/- OF 3%, YOU COULD FURTHER ARGUE IT'S ONLY A 2% LEAD.

    REACHED FOR COMMENT, CRANKY HOLLERED, "GRRRROWWWWWLLLLL! I WILL DESTROY YOU ALL!"


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:




    Here's a reality about the corporate Democratic Party.

    They had two choices after the 2000 election.

    They felt that voters for Ralph Nader cut into their votes.

    So they could (a) attempt to shame Nader voters or (b) move to the damn left.

    They didn't move to the left.

    They're corporate whores -- and that's true of the GOP as well.



    Stop supporting fascists or "extremely careless" warmongering wall st shills with poor judgement (Iraq War)






    And it's really sad to see Cher applaud them for that.

    Come Back To Reality, Cherilyn, Cherilyn.

    She used to have a lot more sense.

    No one owns your vote except you.

    In the United States, you choose how to use your vote.

    If you're happy about your vote, whomever it's for, great.

    That's what we should aspire to.

    But your vote has to be earned.

    If no one earns it, you shouldn't give it away.

    Hillary took her vote seriously . . . when she voted for the Iraq War.


    Clinton led majority of Senate Dems to support Iraq War, said it was "indisputable" Iraq had WMDs. Neocons now support her.





    If Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, Jerry White, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trumps earns your vote, I'm happy for you.
