CRANKY CLINTON BLEEDS SUPPORTERS. SHE SWEARS IT DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSE SHE IS NOW PRESIDENT OF THE WILDERNESS.
SHE ALSO SAYS SHE WOULD BE IN THE WHITE HOUSE IN JANUARY WERE IT NOT FOR FADED CELEBRITY IN CHIEF BARRY O.
BUT EVEN THAT'S OKAY, SHE SWEARS, BECAUSE IN 2020, SHE WILL BE VOTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
"THE WHOLE WORLD," CRANKY SAID PAUSING FOR EFFECT, "KNOWS IT'S OWED TO ME. PIZZAGATE! PIZZAGATE! EXTRA CHEESY!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Let's start with fake news.
Liars across America are concerned with 'fake news.'
The Shrill Hillary contingent will always lie so let's not even factor them in.
But the ones who consider themselves journalists?
Let's pretend they have ethics for a moment and can recognize their own hypocrisy.
Hoshyar Zebari is no longer the Finance Minister of Iraq. Since 2006, he's been the Foreign Minister of Iraq and/or the Women's Minister, etc.
Now he is not in the Cabinet.
Unfortunately lost our appeal to Iraqi Federal Court 6 by 3 votes. Now I am a private citizen after 13 years working for the new Iraq
He Tweeted that yesterday and we noted it yesterday.
Why are we bringing it up again?
Other than Nouri al-Maliki (prime minister from 2006 to 2014), no Iraqi politician got more US press attention than Zebari. And he visited the US more than any other Iraqi politician.
Newspapers and networks and magazines in the US treated him as a sage, a fount of wisdom.
And yet where are the stories about him today?
He was sacked in September, yes.
But other than UPI, no US outlet covered that.
THE FINANCIAL TIMES OF LONDON, for example, is not a US outlet -- nor is REUTERS or AFP or RUDAW, to cite but a few that did cover the story.
He was fired in September and you could give various US news outlets a break by saying, "Oh, it's Iraq, things change often. Zebari says he's appealing so they're just waiting for the verdict on his appeal."
And that might have been true.
If Zebari had won his appeal, the US press might have suddenly covered the story yesterday.
But they've ignored it.
Why was he removed from office?
Corruption is the reason the Parliament gave. (Zebari has maintained he was removed as part of a plot by Nouri al-Maliki to discredit Hayder al-Abadi's government and stage a coup that would allow Nouri to become prime minister yet again.)
Supposedly, corruption is a topic the US press is interested in.
They certainly sang hoseanas for Hayder when he announced he was addressing corruption and for Nouri when he, years earlier, announced he would end corruption in less than 200 days.
Those were big stories in the US press.
But now their hero Zebari has been removed from office due to charges of corruption.
And they're silent.
Try their ignoring the ugly stories/truths about the man they spent years propping up and promoting.
I don't think you can get any more fake than that.
As usual, it's the corporate media in the US that traffics in fake news.
