ALL THE GOSSIP THAT'S FIT TO SPEW?
IT'S BEEN A VERITABLE SUPER BOWL PARTY CHICKEN WINGS STYLE DUMP THIS WEEK WHEN IT COMES TO GOSSIP RELATED TO PRESIDENT CHEETO.
EVERYTHING -- INCLUDING GOSSIP THAT HIS SON WOULD BE DIVORCING -- HAS HIT THE TOILET BOWL THAT IS THE U.S. MEDIA WITH A HEAVY FORCE LEAVING A NASTY STAIN AND REFUSING TO FLUSH DOWN.
FROM A SECLUDED PRIVATE BAR, A CACKLE EMERGES AND, YES, SHE BECKONS TO US.
THE ONE PULLING ALL THE MEDIA'S STRINGS, CRANKY CLINTON.
OVER SHOTS OF CROWN ROYAL AND MULTIPLE BEERS, THE DRUNK CRANKY SLURRED HER WORDS AND WOBBLED ON HER BAR STOOL AS SHE BRAGGED THAT SHE WAS TAKING THE CHEETO DOWN AND MAKING THE MEDIA DO HER BIDDING.
"PULL THE STRING!" CRANKY CACKLED. "PULL THE STRING!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
As Patrick Martin (WSWS) pointed out earlier this month, he is among many people the Democrats are running as "experienced" but they can't seem to talk about their experience:
Josh Butner, running in the 50th District of California against Republican Duncan Hunter, Jr., “served for 23 years in the United States Navy where he saw multiple combat deployments, most recently in Iraq and Afghanistan.” The career Navy SEAL says almost nothing about what he actually did in the top military assassination unit, but that is to be expected. His campaign website features the slogan “Service, Country, Leadership,” alongside a photograph of Butner in desert fatigues.
I cannot endorse him or not endorse him. I don't live in that district (Nancy Pelosi's my House Rep). But if you're running for election on your "service" and your "leadership," you damn well should explain what that is. If you can't explain, you shouldn't run on it. And be sure to check out all three installments of Patrick Martin's "The CIA Democrats:"
PART ONE | PART TWO | PART THREE
Iraq is gearing up for elections as well. They will hold elections May 12th.
Hayder al-Abadi? He wants a second term as prime minister. In the fall of 2014, Barack installed Hayder as prime minister prompting the world to ask: "Hayder who?"
The watery figure hasn't grown any clearer in the years since.
But the US installed him and still backs him which prompts Tweets like this:
America will rig Iraqi elections for Abadi. Hopefully it won’t be a success.
Hayder wants a second term and is running on defeating ISIS.
It's shaky ground for him to stand on.
Adnan Abu Zeed (AL-MONITOR) reports:
And XINHAU reports:
Iraqi security forces on Wednesday killed at least seven Islamic State (IS) militants in clashes at a village near the city of Shirqat in Iraq's central province of Salahudin, a provincial security source said.
The clashes erupted at dawn when about 10 IS militants attacked a military base at the village of Mseihli in southern Shirqat, some 280 km north of Iraq's capital Baghdad, Col. Mohammed al-Jubouri from the media office of the provincial police command told Xinhua.
It was always a mistake for Hayder to run for re-election with nothing to show for it. Even worse was to run claiming ISIS was defeated. That might have worked for two weeks but for a campaign that's going to last months, it was a big mistake.
