BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL-AID TABLE
FADED CELEBRITY IN CHIEF BARRY O HAS REPEATEDLY SET RECORDS FOR DEPORTATION, BEATING EVERYONE ELSE WHO HAS OCCUPITED THE OVAL OFFICE.
TODAY, THE LITTLE PRINCESS FINALLY GOT REBUKED.
NATIONAL COUNCIL OF LA RAZA PRESIDENT JANET MURGUIA IS SET TO DECLARE BARRY O "THE DEPORTER IN CHIEF" IN A SPEECH TONIGHT.
CLEARLY, LA RAZA HAS LEAKED THIS PLANNED SPEECH IN AN ATTEMPT TO GET BARRY O TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND SWEAR TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, THE DAHLI BAMA ASKED, "LA RAZA? DIDN'T SHE PLAY PINKY TUSCADERO ON HAPPY DAYS?"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
The votes are in and US Secretary of State John Kerry has won the Hypocrisy Award.
Kerry's complaints abt Russian violation of int'l law would be more potent if he hadn't voted for plainly illegal Iraq War as senator
Timothy McGrath (Global Post) points out:
Maybe US Secretary of State John Kerry has forgotten about the Iraq War.
How else could he appear on "Face the Nation" and, with a straight face, slam Russia for "invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext"?
International law expert Francis A. Boyle elaborates, "John Kerry is claiming to stand for international law and invokes the 1994 Budapest Agreement. Of course the U.S. has repeatedly violated international law, with the Iraq invasion (which Kerry voted for) and numerous other instances. But even in this case, if you examine the Victoria Nuland [assistant secretary of state] tape, it's clear that the U.S. was plotting a coup in the Ukraine and a coup is what happened. So Russia is only the second country guilty of violating Ukrainian sovereignty and the Budapest Agreement in response to the previous violations by the Obama administration."
Of course, the real comment here should be that Kerry needs to close his mouth and sit his ass down because, yet again, he's forgotten he's over Iraq for the US government.
Yet again, he's sticking his nose everywhere except where it should be going.
What did he do during February on Iraq?
Because Americans should be outraged by the billions the State Dept is given to carry out some secretive mission (they won't explain it to Congress and we'll only offer generalities) in Iraq.
What is that money accomplishing?
It doesn't appear to accomplish anything and Kerry doesn't appear to be engaged in Iraq at all. With the State Dept being over Iraq and it being their biggest money item after Afghanistan, the State Dept should be issuing statements on Iraq weekly and it should be a regular part of the daily press briefing.
But it's not.
And anytime Kerry speaking these days, it's as though he thinks he's president or vice president and not Secretary of State.
I voted for Kerry in 2004, I campaigned for him, I supported him in the primary.
But I can admit that didn't work out and he did not become president. It's time he learned to admit that as well because while he barks and bellows at Russia, we're left with the ongoing crises in Iraq -- plural.
Let's start with the violence.
Friday was the end of the month. As we noted at Third Sunday, "Iraq Body Count sees 930 violent deaths for February, UNAMI counts 703, Margaret Griffis and Antiwar.com count 1,705." AFP's Prashant Rao Tweeted on the death toll:
Human Rights Watch's Kenneth Roth Tweeted:
And what is the US government doing about Nouri's assault on the Sunnis?
Not a damn thing.
Wait, they keep congratulating him. They're doing that.
They're congratulating him.
They're joining in the pretense that the assault on Anbar (which no one wants to point out has crept into Salahuddin, Nineveh and Diyala provinces) is about 'terrorism.' Dahr Jamail (Truthout) explains:
Doctors, residents and NGO workers in Fallujah are accusing the Iraqi government of "war crimes" and "crimes against humanity" that have occurred as a result of its ongoing attack on the city.
Dr. Ahmed Shami, the chief of resident doctors at Fallujah General Hospital, told Truthout that since Iraqi government forces began shelling Fallujah in early January 2014, at least 109 civilians have been killed and 632 wounded.
Felicity Arbuthnot (BRussells Tribunal) notes who's backing and arming the tyrant:
However, the US and UK are seemingly remarkably selective when it comes to tyrants who "kill their own people".
Not only have they failed to censure their tyrannical Iraqi puppet, Nuri al-Maliki, but they are also arming him to the teeth with the same weapons which are linked to the horrific birth defects, and cancers throughout the country, which he is now using on "his own people".
Moreover, if allegations from very well informed sources that he holds an Iranian passport are correct, to say that US-UK's despot of choice appears in a whole new political light would be to massively understate.
To facilitate Al-Maliki's assault on Iraq's citizens, the US "rushed" 75 Hellfire missiles to Baghdad in December. On 23rd January Iraq requested a further 500 Hellfires, costing $82 million - small change compared to the $14 billion in weapons provided by America since 2005.
The AGM-114R Hellfire II, nauseatingly named 'Romeo', clocked in at: $94,000 each - in 2012. A shopping spree on weaponry in a country where electricity, clean water, education and health services have all but collapsed since the fall of Saddam Hussein.
The re-invasion of Iraq
Two weeks ago an "American cargo jet loaded with weapons" including 2,400 rockets to arm Iraqi attack helicopters also arrived in Baghdad.
Subsequently a contract was agreed to sell a further 24 AH-64E attack helicopters to Iraq "along with spare parts and maintenance, in a massive $6.2 Billion deal."
With them comes the reinvasion of Iraq, with: "hundreds of Americans" to be shipped out "to oversee the training and fielding of equipment". Some are "US government employees" - read 'military' - plus a plethora of "contractors" - read mercenaries.
According to Jane's Defence Weekly, on 15th November 2013 Iraq also took delivery of "its first shipment of highly advanced Mi-35 attack helicopters as part of a $4.3 Billion arms purchase from Russia", out of an order of "about 40 Mi-35 and 40 Mi-28 Havoc attack helicopters".
The all to "attack his own people" in the guise of defeating 'Al Qaida' in Anbar province and elsewhere where the people have been peacefully protesting a near one man regime of torture, sectarianism, kangaroo courts which sentence victims who have also had confessions extracted under torture.
While US politicians apparently crapped on their courage and had to send it out to be cleaned, more and more Iraqi politicians are speaking their minds.
