Alyssa Milano to star in MAFIA GRANDMA


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

 THE YEARS HAVE NOT BEEN KIND TO 1 TIME TV CHILD ACTRESS ALYSSA MILANO  BUT SHE HAS FINALLY LANDED A JOB.




THE LINES AROUND THE MOUTH, THE BAGS UNDER THE EYES, THE HEAVY MAKE UP, ALL FOR HER NEW ROLE --  THE LEAD IN THE SEQUEL TO "MAFIA PRINCESS" --  ENTITLED "MAFIA GRANDMA."

talks postpartum anxiety attacks and checking herself into psychiatric ward


"PREPPING FOR THE ROLE," MILANO REVEALED, "REQUIRED I PACK ON A LOT OF POUNDS.  A LOT.  HENCE MY TRIPLE CHIN.  I'M REALLY EXCITED TO BE STEPPING INTO SUSAN LUCCI'S SHOES BECAUSE SHE HAD AN ACTUAL CAREER AND HAS WORKED FOR 48 YEARS AND COUNTING.  I'VE DABBLED A BIT BUT NO ONE WHO'S SEEN FILM ON ME WOULD CALL WHAT I'VE DONE ACTUAL WORKING."


FROM THE TCI WIRE:



Shi'ite cleric and movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr is known for his long history of calling for all foreign troops (including US troops) to leave Iraq.

It's a detail that escapes some low information cultists.  Yes, we're talking about the Hillary Clinton obsessed crowd known as The Flatulence.  Yes, where Hillary goes, there is always The Flatulence.




Hillary Clinton was never President but she was blamed for the Iraq war and Bengahzi, she took full ownership, testified twice for over 16 hours and most importantly apologized more than she should have personally but the men, President, was both re-elected. Now that's sexism.







Republicans are scammers. Obama inherited recession. Took stock market from 7,000 to 20,000. Unemployment from 8.3% to 4.6%. Consumer confidence from 25.3 to 107.1. Ended IRAQ war. Crippled ISIS and MS-13. They just “noticed” and Trump is trying to take credit









Leave aside sentence construction, one says Hillary was blame for Iraq and she took full ownership.  No, she did not.  She wouldn't even apologize for the longest -- not even a weak apology.  Here's Jeff Gerth (PRO PUBLICA) from June 2014 reviewing Hillary's HARD CHOICES:



Having co-authored a 2007 biography of Hillary Clinton, I know that Iraq is not one of her favorite subjects. But with the bloodshed and sectarian division now crippling Iraq, I wondered what her new memoir, "Hard Choices," had to say about a country that's long been a political minefield for her.
The answer is not a lot. There is no chapter on its own for Iraq, like there is for Gaza, or Burma or Haiti. The discussion of Iraq is scattered throughout the 632-page book, and it is mostly about old battles. Clinton does not delve into the challenges she faced as secretary of state in 2011 as her department inherited responsibility for Iraq's security assistance when American troops withdrew.
Instead, the book has made headlines for her admission, for the first time in 12 years, that she made a "mistake" when voting to authorize the Iraq war when she was still a senator in 2002.
A closer look at what Clinton wrote—and didn't write—about that vote, about her views on the Iraq troop surge and about the country's ongoing sectarian strife is revealing. Clinton continues to misstate parts of her record on Iraq, while failing to address some of the tough choices she took as America's chief diplomat.

Continue reading Gerth for more on Hillary's real record on Iraq.  By 2016, she was now insisting that her 'mistake' was to trust that Bully Boy Bush would send enough troops to Iraq.  That's ownership?  And grasp what she's arguing for -- this woman who opposed the 'surge' -- she's arguing that even more US troops should have been sent to Iraq.


We could spend all day with lying politicians and the fools that are sexually attracted to them but let's move to the second Tweet.  Barack ended the Iraq War?

No.


Helene Cooper and Gardiner Harris (NEW YORK TIMES) report:



Over the past four years, American military planning in Iraq has counted on working with Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, a moderate Shiite Muslim who has managed to rebuild the country’s army, restore sovereignty and partner with both the United States and Iran to defeat the Islamic State.
But the results of the weekend’s national elections in Iraq have torn the American assumptions asunder.
[. . .]

Mr. Trump has already expressed his desire to bring American troops home soon from Syria; officials said the president has given the Defense Department six months to wrap up its mission there. Military officials had hoped that an American troop presence in Iraq could keep in contact with allied forces across the border in Syria.
And what would Mr. Trump do if Mr. Sadr again demands an American troop withdrawal from Iraq?
“The Pentagon is already on the clock to get out of Syria,” said Derek Chollet, a former senior Defense Department official in the Obama administration. “Who’s to say what happens in Iraq after?”


Again, Barack didn't end the Iraq War.

Alyssa wants to restart her failed career

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

FAILED ADULT ACTRESS ALYSSA MILANO CONTINUES TO FEEL BITTER THAT HER ACTING CAREER IS OVER.  DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION, SHE TOOK TO TWITTER ON MOTHER'S DAY WITH THIS GEM:

“I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married...



REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, MS. MILANO EXPLAINED THAT THIS WAS PART OF HER UPCOMING PUNKY BREWSTER FAN FICTION, "I'VE GOT A PLAN FOR A 3-PART SERIES INVOLVING FINGER BANGING, SKUNKING AND SCISSORING ENDING WITH A BAD CASE OF RUG BURN FOR BOTH PUNKY AND MYSELF.  I THINK THIS IS JUST THE THING TO RESTART MY CAREER."



FROM THE TCI WIRE:

Daniel Bellamy (EURO NEWS) reports 3 people died from a bombing after polls closed -- two were voters and one was a polling observer.  These were the first parliamentary elections since April 30, 2014.  At that time, the Islamic State was on the rise thanks to the actions of then-prime minister Nouri al-Maliki but they had yet to seize territory.

Strangely, there are 'experts' (gas bags) who judge ISIS by how much territory they hold when holding territory was actually not their goal or aim but something they managed to do because of Nouri al-Maliki's corruption, violence and ineptitude.

The elections that took place today had been postponed.  In addition, they were cut in half -- this was supposed to combine provincial and parliamentary elections.

That didn't happen and provincial candidates may be very grateful about that since turnout was very, very low.  Nabih Bulos (LOS ANGLES TIMES) notes, "Before noon, Prime Minister Haider Abadi ordered the curfew lifted in what was thought to be a bid to encourage more people to come out to vote, but it appeared to have little effect even with 30 minutes before polls closed at 6 p.m."

Why would they be excited?

 Ali Jawad (ANADOLU AGENCY) notes, "A total of 24 million Iraqis are eligible to cast their ballots to elect members of parliament, who will in turn elect the Iraqi president and prime minister."  RUDAW adds, "Around 7,000 candidates have registered to stand in the May 12 poll, with 329 parliamentary seats up for grabs."  AFP explains that the nearly 7,000 candidates includes 2014 women.  THE SIASAT DAILY adds, of the nearly 7,000 candidates, "According to the electoral commission, only 20 percent of the candidates are newcomers." Ali Abdul-Hassan and Sinan Salaheddin (AP) report, "Iraqi women account for 57 percent of Iraq’s population of over 37 million, according to the U.N. Development Program, and despite government efforts to address gender inequality, the situation for Iraqi women has declined steadily since 2003.  According to the UNDP, one in every 10 Iraqi households is headed by a widow. In recent years, Iraqi women suffered further economic, social and political marginalization due to decades of wars, conflict, violence and sanctions."    RUDAW also notes that 60 Christian candidates are competing for the five allotted minority seats.  How do they elect the prime minister?  This comes after the general election and is based on who won seats in the election.   Abdulrahman al-Rashed (AL ARABIYA) explains, "To win the premiership, a candidate needs to win the majority of the votes, i.e. the votes of 165 MPs out of 329. Since it is a multi-party system, it is almost impossible to win these votes without sealing political alliances. The governorate of Baghdad is the most important one because it is the largest with 69 seats."  The chief issues?  Mustapha Karkouti (GULF NEWS) identifies them as follows, "Like in previous elections, the main concerns of ordinary Iraqis continue to be the lack of security and the rampant corruption."  Sunday, RUDAW explained that the electoral commission "so far fined 210 candidates for violations of commission guidelines."

Corruption is a key issue and it was not a topic explored by candidates outside of Moqtada al-Sadr's coalition.  Empty lip service was offered.  Hayder al-Abadi, current prime minister, had been offering empty lip service for four years.  He did nothing.  Iraqis were supposed to think that, for example, Hayder's focus on ISIS in Mosul mattered.  All life was supposed to stop because of Mosul?  All expectations were to be ignored because of Mosul?

Arabic social media today and yesterday was full of comments about the lack of improvement in services.  It noted how the elections had not mattered before and, yes, how in 2010 the US government overturned the elections because they didn't like the outcome.

I'm sorry, where's the special counsel investigating that?

Oh, that's right, in the US, Americans only get outraged when they feel their elections are stolen, not when they know they stole another country's elections.  So it's not at all surprising that NPR states, "With more than 90 percent of the votes in, Iraq's election commission announced voter turnout of 44.5 percent. The figure is down sharply from 60 percent of eligible voters who cast their ballots in the last elections in 2014." It's left to AP to point out the obvious NPR ignored, "No election since 2003 saw turnout below 60 percent."  AFP also spoke clearly, "More than half of the nearly 24.5 million voters did not show up at the ballot box in the parliamentary election, the highest abstention rate since the first multiparty elections in 2005 [. . .]."

So this turnout was historically low.

Alyssa and her armed bodyguards

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

FAILED ADULT ACTRESS ALYSSA MILANO GRACED DALLAS, TEXAS WITH HER PRESENCE ON SATURDAY TO EXPLAIN THAT GUNS NEEDED TO BE RESTRICTED.

BORED WITH NO CAREER, ALYSSA'S DECIDED TO DABBLE AND SHE FELT THE BEST WAY TO GET ATTENTION WAS IN DALLAS.

"SO," SHE EXPLAINED TO THESE REPORTERS, "ME AND MY ARMED BODYGUARDS MOSEY'D ON DOWN TO DALLAS TO SAY NO TO GUNS!"

ASKED ABOUT THE MESSAGE AND HOW IT CONTRADICTED APPEARING WITH HER ARMED BODYGUARDS, ALYSSA EXPLAINED, "OH, IT'S NO GUNS FOR THE COMMONERS.  FAMOUS PEOPLE LIKE ME NEED PROTECTION.  WE MATTER, CELEBRITY LIVES MATTER!"


FROM THE TCI WIRE:



They said an important message would be coming from Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani on Friday.


Major debate in over forthcoming speech by Shiite cleric Ali about election, some says he would refuse to vote for Shiite factions close to Iran, while some leaders of these factions says days ago they will get negative campaign against them a week before election






Today, the speech was delievered.  REUTERS reports:

Iraq’s top Shi’ite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, suggested on Friday that he had not abandoned his opposition to former prime minister Nuri al-Maliki, who is bidding to return to power in elections on May 12.     
Making a rare intervention in politics, Sistani in his weekly sermon that Iraqis should “avoid falling into the trap of those ... who are corrupt and those who have failed, whether they have been tried or not”.  




As Election Day looms Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani outlines his position on political parties, election campaigns, and recommendations for Iraqi electorate. Summary translation below
 





A rebuke to former prime minister and forever thug Nouri al-Maliki who went from a petty crook to millions once he became prime minister in Iraq.  The people starved and suffered but Nouri and his family were living large.  Son Ahmed al-Maliki did not help the family image by purchasing fancy digs in England and multiple expensive sports cars.   None of this went over well in Iraq where the citizens suffered and the officials thrived on corruption.
