Debbie Wasserman Schultz's booger problems

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


IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THESE REPORTERS -- MUST CREDIT  BULLY BOY PRESS &    CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- U.S. HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ EXPLAINS THAT HER PROBLEMS OF LATE CAN ALL BE PINNED ON NASAL ISSUES.


"FOR SIXTEEN MONTHS NOW," DEBBIE EXPLAINED, "I'VE HAD TROUBLE BREATHING FREELY DUE TO A BLOCKAGE IN MY RIGHT NOSTRIL."

SHOWN IN PHOTO BELOW, DEBBIE STRUGGLES TO BREATHE OUT HER RIGHT NOSTRIL.


IT Scandal Makes Debbie Wasserman Schultz Toxic To Fellow Democrats: “We Wish She Would Go Away”



THE BLOCKAGE TURNED OUT TO BE A PARTICULARLY THICK AND WIDE BOOGER THAT HAD LODGED DEEPLY IN HER RIGHT NOSTRIL.

"I TRIED PICKING IT," DEBBIE ADDED.  "BUT EVEN WITH MY PRESS ON NAILS, I JUST COULDN'T GET TO IT.  WE FINALLY FLUSHED IT OUT.  AND NOW I CAN SEE AND THINK BETTER.  ALL OF MY DISASTER DECISIONS WERE BASED UPON THE BOOGER INTERFERING WITH MY BREATHING AND MY BRAIN PATTERNS."


FROM THE TCI WIRE:


Starting with Hillary Clinton who is apparently on a mission to become this century's John and Martha Mitchell combined.  Sloppy drunk?  It's in there.  It's all in the book.  It's dishy and trashy and someone thought she was presidential?

If she had a better ghost writer, she might be able to set herself up as the next Jaqueline Susann.

It's dishy and trashy and she's yet again managed to set a bad example to all.

The good news for the country?

It's unlikely she'll try for president next go round.

We know she won't accept the results -- even if she pledges to do so.

Her book is another ghost written embarrassment intended to make money.  She's shameless in sporting her greed which includes outrageous prices for tickets to see her.

And she wonders why the working class felt she was out of touch with their issues?

Two questions that need to be answered.

First, why are US taxpayers paying for Secret Service protection?

She's getting millions for this book so why does the American people have to pay for her protection at her book promotion efforts?

Shouldn't Hillary pick up that tab?

Second, she voted for the Iraq War.

How much of the book's proceeds will she be donating to veterans?

Her greed must be her chief motivator.





When is enough for Hillary?

When does she give back?

She said her vote for the war was a mistake.

Okay, atone for your mistake, don't just line your own pockets.


She voted for the war.

The war that still drags on.

Dirty Debbie was guilty, Court finds

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

LIKE TRASH, DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ CONTINUES TO GATHER IN THE STREET.

EVEN A COURT FINDING SHE WAS GUILTY OF LYING, TRICKERY AND RIGGING AN ELECTION DIDN'T TAKE OUT THE CROOK:

The Court thus assumes that the DNC and Wasserman Schultz preferred Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate for president over Bernie Sanders or any other Democratic candidate. It assumes that they stockpiled information useful to the Clinton campaign. It assumes that they devoted their resources to assist Clinton in securing the party’s nomination and opposing other Democratic candidates. And it assumes that they engaged in these surreptitious acts while publically proclaiming they were completely neutral, fair, and impartial.


A PURGE IS NEEDED IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY -- DEBBIE AND HER CRIMES ARE A STAIN ON THE PARTY.  SHE MUST BE EXPELLED FROM THE PARTY.

REACHED FOR COMMENT, DEBBIE BARED HER FANGS, GROWLED, AND PAUSED FROM PISSING IN THE STREET LONG ENOUGH TO SNARL, "I CAN'T BE TAKEN DOWN.  I AM A RABID BEAST AND I WILL RIP APART ANYONE WHO TRIES!"

DEBBIE THEN ATTEMPTED TO CHARGE AT THESE REPORTERS BUT WE MANAGED TO ESCAPE BY TOSSING SNAUSAGES ONTO THE STREET AND SHE RAN AFTER THEM.



FROM THE TCI WIRE:

On a related note, glad for Patty's success but James Cameron is correct, WONDER WOMAN was not about feminism not was the character especially strong.  Women in James' films have tended to not only be more complex, but stronger as well.

And while I'm happy for Patty's success, surely she doesn't believe she wrote the screenplay.

Because she didn't.

Allan Heinberg did.

It's actually an embarrassing film -- both for being pro-war (that's not what Princess Diana was about) and for refusing to grapple with the world.

It's movie-land.  Meaning they set it in WWI because they didn't want African-American characters.  And movie-knowledge allows them to get away with that.  (Meaning old movies rarely featured African-Americans in anything other than bit parts so the White landscape in WONDER WOMAN -- which is not reflective of the era -- does merge with what many see as the past via feature films.)

When Patty can leave the cartoonish, glorification of war, she might have something to be proud of.

Until then, she should probably shut her mouth or others will step forward to respond as I have done-- this is the first time I've ever commented publicly on that film.  (As noted before, James Cameron is a friend.)

The Whiteness of WONDER WOMAN is truly offensive.

(And don't bring up Gal.  She's not playing a Jew, she's playing a White Amazon.  Do we want to explore the damage done to our society via enforced "passing"?  Didn't think so.)

A DNC member from Florida on Debbie Wasserman Schultz: "We wish she would go away"



UH, POLITICO, IT'S NOT JUST 1 PERSON.

AND IT'S NOT JUST FLORIDA.

REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ STATED, "SO I'M HATED.  SO HOW IS THIS NEWS?  IT'S NOTHING NEW.  I'VE BEEN HATED MY WHOLE LIFE.  MY OWN TEDDY BEAR RAN AWAY FROM ME AT FIVE.  YOU KNOW WHAT? I THRIVE ON IT!  IT MAKES ME STRONGER!  PRINT THAT YOU %#$%#-ERS, PRINT THAT!"


FROM THE TCI WIRE:



Repeatedly over the years, various think tanks -- including RAND -- have warned that this issue has the potential to be an explosive one.

Which is why you don't leave it on the backburner.

If this had been addressed in 2007, for example, any fallout could have been addressed by now.


Grasp that the US military remains in Iraq.

Grasp that some will always insist that the US military remains.

The longer this issue of independence is postponed, the longer some will insist the US must remain in Iraq.

KURDISTAN 24 reports:

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has scheduled and insists on holding a referendum on independence for the Kurdistan Region on Sep. 25, 2017, to decide whether or not to secede from the rest of Iraq.
Barzani stated that the move toward independence is part of a peaceful process aimed at deterring violence. “The main purpose [of the referendum] is to prevent further tragedies and wars from taking place[in the future].”
Regarding the timing of the vote, the President noted that if the Kurdistan Region waited for others to accept its decision, the right time would never come.

“Independence is a legitimate claim for our people, and the referendum can rightfully be held, at the earliest opportunity, so the world can be made aware of the will of the people of Kurdistan… We do not want to spend another 100-years repeating the same tragedies tied to the Iraqi state.”



What a change that is from the Jalal Talabani -- the ridiculous Jalal.


Dropping back to the March 16, 2009 snapshot:



Meanwhile Hurriyet reports:

Talabani told a Turkish newspaper in an interview published on Monday that it would not be realistic to believe that an independent Kurdish state could survive as it is likely that neighboring countries Turkey , Iran and Syria would close their borders.          
"I tell my Turkish brothers not to fear that Kurds will declare independence. It is an advantage for Kurds to stay within the borders of Iraq in terms of their economic, cultural, social and political interests," he told in the interview.

 


Sabah got the interview and they quote Talabani stating, "Iraq will not be separated and the civil war is over" and "The ideal of a united Kurdistan is just a dream written in poetry. I do not deny that there are poems devoted to the notion of a united Kurdistan. But we can not continue to dream." If accurate, Talabani's remarks will spark anger among some Kurds. And it may be a great deal of anger and it may be among many Iraqi Kurds.


Jalal Talabani, the sell out.  The only time he ever fought was to be first in line at the all-you-can-eat buffet.

Regardless of how the vote turns out, no one can claim Barzani didn't try.

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

    HOW BAD ARE THINGS FOR DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ -- NOTED GREASY HAIRED CRIMINAL AND CONGRESS MEMBER?

    JEB BUSH IS CALLING HER "INCOMPETENT."

    JEB BUSH OF THE BUSH FAMILY -- A DYNASTY NOT NOTED FOR STRONG THOUGHT OR MENTAL CAPACITY.

    JEB BUSH WHO LOST THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION TO DONALD TRUMP IS CALLING HER "INCOMPETENT."

    REFLECT ON THAT.

    DEBBIE IS.


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:

    Do you remember, Val, that the Iraq War continues?

    Valerie Plame was at war with her own agency.  The CIA is often at war with itself.  It's probably the only thing that's prevented its complete takeover of America.  Val stomped her feet and made a spectacle of herself.

    For those who don't remember, she was outed by the administration of Bully Boy Bush.

    For Val, the whole issue is Val.

    She's never really been able to speak to Iraq, of the ongoing war, of the dead.

    But damned if she couldn't hop in a convertible to pose for VANITY FAIR.

    Vanity's not fair and Valerie Plame's self-obsession goes a long ways towards explaining why the United States is still in Iraq.

    A book deal, Naomi Watts playing her in a movie, and Val's hungry ego has still not been satisfied.  Some day, it may be and she may get around to actually talking about Iraqis.

    The Iraq War hasn't helped the people of Iraq.

    Now it's even hurting the thugs in the militias.

    Most infamous for their attacks on Sunnis and their publicly professed loyalty to Iran, Iraq's Shi'ite militias number a few less as a result of a US action.

    XINHUA reports:

    A paramilitary Hashd Shaabi unit said Tuesday the U.S. forces pounded its posts near the border with Syria and killed dozens of its militants, warning that the attack will not go without punishment.
    The U.S. forces carried out "heavy bombardment on Monday morning on the posts of Sayyd al-Shuhadaa Brigades in Akashat area near the border with Syria, leaving large number of martyrs and wounded fighters," the unit said in a statement emailed to Xinhua.

    It said that group "holds the U.S. forces the responsibility for the consequences of the action. We declare that it will not go without punishment."


    AHLULBAYT NEWS AGENCY also notes the statement from the militia:


    The “criminal forces” of the US heavily pounded the positions of Sayyid al-Shuhada Brigades along the common border between Iraq and Syria which led to the martyrdom and injuring of a large number of fighters, the statement said.

    “We declare that this move will not go unpunished,” the statement read.

    DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ INSISTED IN A PUBLIC HEARING THAT THE CAPITOL POLICE HAD SEIZED HER LAPTOP AND DEMANDED THAT IT BE RETURNED.

    BUT NOW SHE IS INSISTING THAT THE LAPTOP IS HER I.T. GUY'S LAPTOP.

    ASKED ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE IN HER STORIES, DEBBIE SNORTED AS HER EYES DARTED AROUND NERVOUSLY BEFORE ASKING, "IS LYING A SOLID DEFENSE?"


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:

    ALSUMARIA reports that early this morning the security forces began cutting off the roads to Baghdad's Tahrir Square.

    Why?

    They always do this when they know of a planned protest.  It's to intimidate people with the hopes that they won't participate and to make it hard for those who still want to participate to reach the square.


    Haydar Majid (ALSUMARIA) reports  many came out to demonstrate today following Shi'ite cleic and movement leader Moqtada's call on Thursday to protest.  XINHUA notes:



    "I wish the people are aware of what corrupt politicians are engaged with a dirty scheme to restore corruption which will not only control the people's food, but also their necks and blood. So that they would stage demonstration by millions to determine their fate," Sadr said in a statement by his office.
    Sadr pointed out that the "sectarian storm," which engulfed the Iraqi people after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, made many Iraqis to close their eyes about what the politicians and the parliament blocs were doing.

    He said the politicians, who were seen as corrupts by many Iraqis, are planning to bring a new electoral commission and to approve an election law for the provincial elections that would take into account the interests of the same old large parliamentary blocs, according to the statement.




    Provincial elections were due in March but Hayder refused to hold them.  It was thought they would be held in September -- thought and publicly stated.  Yet again they've been pushed back.  It's now said they'll be held in 2018.

    Earlier this week, Moqtada met with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.



    : Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman receives Muqtada Al-Sadr, leader of the Sadrist Movement in on Sunday






    Madawi al-Rasheed (MIDDLE EAST EYE) offers:

    This is not Sadr’s first visit since the 2003 American occupation. He arrived in Riyadh in 2006 at the height of the Iraqi resistance to the occupation and the Iraqi civil war. But the visit was unsuccessful then. It yielded little benefits to either side. Like other aspiring clerics turned politicians, Sadr entered Iraqi politics with his own Jaysh al-Mahdi militia that later changed its name to the Peace Brigades.
    Saudi Arabia grew very frustrated over the Iranian expansion in Iraq after 2003 and found itself constantly backing losing Iraqi horses. From patronising Sunni tribal chiefs in 2005 as part of al-Tawafuq electoral list to backing the Iraqi Sunni-Shia coalitions under Iyad Allawi in 2010, Saudi efforts to find an entry into post-Saddam Iraqi politics led to further frustration amounting to hostility on several occasions.
    Saudi relations with Iraq deteriorated so much during Nouri al-Maliki’s premiership with Iraq bluntly accusing Saudi Arabia of sponsoring terrorism and precipitating a sectarian war in Iraq as a result of its Wahhabi ideology and the Saudi jihadis found in Iraq. Only in 2015 did a Saudi ambassador return to Iraq after almost 25 years of absence.  
    Sadr’s recent visit to Jeddah is a break from past Saudi practices and strategies. Mohammed bin Salman and his Trump administration backers want to limit Iranian expansion in the Arab world without outright military confrontation with Iran or its various militia that operate in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.

    Wasserman Schultz's latest scheme

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


    MEET DEBBIE!

    U.S. HOUSE REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ IS STUCK IN A MESS OF HER OWN MAKING AND ALL BUT ROLLING IN IT.

    INSTEAD OF AIRING THE ISSUES OUT WITH THE PUBLIC -- HER I.T. ISSUES -- SHE'S DECIDED TO BE "DEBBIE!"

    SPEAKING TO THESE REPORTERS, THE CONGRESS WOMAN EXPLAINED, "I'M DEBBIE -- JUST DEBBIE!  THAT WAY I GET A FRESH START.  I GOT THE IDEA THIS MORNING WHILE GETTING DOUGHNUTS AND FINDING THAT DUNKIN' DOUGHNUTS WAS NOW JUST 'DUNKIN'' -- A FRESH START.  I WANT THAT TOO!"


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:



    Yesterday afternoon, Audie Cornish (NPR's ALL THINGS CONSIDERED) spoke with Human Rights Watch's Belkis Willie:


    AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:  There is a revenge campaign happening in Mosul. This started when Iraqi forces were fighting to retake the city from ISIS, and it's gone on since Iraq regained control of it. Soldiers have been rounding up and prosecuting anyone suspected to be a member of ISIS or related to one or a sympathizer of the terrorist group. In many cases, those detained are abused and executed. Human rights observers say the tactics being used by the military are war crimes.



    BELKIS WILLE: I mean in terms of executions, we're seeing men being shot. We're seeing even more grotesque cases - for example, men being thrown off cliffs into the Tigris River and then being shot upon as they land. Numerous cases of really severe torture, sometimes leading to death.


    Last week, Human Rights Watch noted:


    An Iraqi army division trained by the United States government allegedly executed several dozen prisoners in Mosul’s Old City, Human Rights Watch said today. Two international observers detailed the summary killings of four people by the Iraqi army’s 16th Division in mid-July 2017, and saw evidence that the unit had executed many more people, including a boy.
     The US government should suspend all assistance and support to the 16th Division pending Iraq’s full investigation of the allegations and appropriate prosecutions, Human Rights Watch said. Under the “Leahy Law,” the US is prohibited from providing military assistance to any unit of foreign security forces if there is credible evidence that the unit has committed gross violations of human rights and no “effective measures” are being taken to bring those responsible to justice.
    “The US government should make sure it is no longer providing assistance to the Iraqi unit responsible for this spate of executions but also suspend any plans for future assistance until these atrocities have been properly investigated,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “Given the widespread abuses by Iraqi forces and the government’s abysmal record on accountability, the US should take a hard look at its involvement with Iraqi forces.”[. . .]
     Under the “Leahy Law,” the US government is required to suspend assistance to the 16th Division until the Iraqi government takes three steps, which are often known as “remediation components”: impartial and thorough investigations; impartial and thorough prosecutions or administrative actions, as appropriate; and proportional sentencing or comparable administrative actions.
    Despite acknowledging that Iraqi forces committed violations of the laws of war during the Mosul operation and promising to punish those responsible, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has yet to demonstrate that Iraqi authorities have held any soldiers accountable for executing, torturing, and abusing civilians or captured fighters.


    ABC NEWS covered the abuses.


    The other broadcast outlets haven't really made time.

    From NPR's broadcast yesterday:


    CORNISH: You've said that the persecution of ISIS suspects now could inadvertently drive more people toward extremism. Why do you think that?

    WILLE: I think you really need to look at ISIS and why ISIS for so many years was able to draw in so many recruits - young, Sunni Arab men - throughout Iraq and Syria. And it comes with a history.

    Since 2003, with the fall of Saddam's government and an incoming Shia government that put Shia fighters into the military and brought in Shia militia, what we saw was rampant abuse that usually took the form of torture, executions, really targeting Sunni Arab men. These were the very men that ultimately joined ISIS, saying, we're sick of this complete impunity for Iraqi armed forces. And if this battle opens the floodgates to that very abuse that pushed men to join ISIS, we're going to continue to see young men wanting to join.
