U.S. PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN TOLD JIMMY FALLON ON THE TONIGHT SHOW LAST WEEK THAT HE DOES NOT FOLLOW POLL NUMBERS ANYMORE. MANY TOOK HIM AT HIS WORD THAT THIS WAS DUE TO THE FACT THAT HIS POLL NUMBERS HAVE TANKED.
HOWEVER, DOCUMENTS RELEASED BY TRICKYLEAKS FROM DR. KEVIN O'CONNOR'S OFFICE REVEAL THAT THE PRESIDENT IS EASILY WINDED. THE MEDICAL TERM FOR THE CONDITION IS ''AGING'' AND JOE, LIKE MANY AMERICANS, SUFFERS FROM IT.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, JOE ADMITTED TO THESE REPORTERS -- MUST CREDIT BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THAT "INDEED, IF I'M NOT ABLE TO HARNESS MY OLD MAN FARTS TO PROPELL MYSELF THROUGH TIME AND SPACE, I'M REALLY INCAPABLE OF FOLLOWING ALMOST ANYTHING."
Starting with a documentary Ruth noted earlier "JFK UNSOLVED: THE REAL CONSPIRACIES ."
KGO -- ABC 7 in the Bay Area -- produced the documentary with Dan Noyes as the reporter and with interviews with Josiah Thompson (his most recent book on the assassination of JFK is LAST SECOND IN DALLAS) and Clint Hill (a Secret Service agent from the Eisenhower era to the Ford administration; he was in Dallas the day JFK was shot and is the one who jumped on the trunk after the shooting to shield the injured president and Jaqueline Kennedy).
All these years later and not only do questions remain but documents remain hidden -- documents that should have been released long ago. Run out the clock and hope that by the time they're finally released it's an attitude of, "Oh, yeah, all those years ago bbrutal things happened. You know like with Julius Caesar. That's just how it was back then." I do hope all the liars are held accountable -- not just the people that carried out the hit but also those who have made careers (and big bucks) out of lying and attacking. They'll tell any lie at all -- like VARIETY's Owen as Ava and I noted in "Media: The stupid and the liars choose to serve corporations, not people:"
We think it's sad news that Oliver Stone has had to revisit the assassination of JFK. It's sad but telling -- and most telling on our media.
58 years ago, then-President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. The American people didn't buy the whitewash of The Warren Commission or it's 'expert; staff which included Gerald Ford (later a US president -- an unelected US president) and Arlen Specter (later a US senator). A lot of people got 'lucky' or paid off because of how they responded to the assassination. Lie -- like Ford and Specter -- and you or your children have a career -- Dan Rather, Ethan Hawke (are we really going to be the only ones to point out Ethan's connection?), Harry Connick Jr., Cokie Roberts . . .
There were people and outlets who questioned the nonsense in real time -- Jim Garrison, Mark Lane, and both Mort Sahl and Woody Allen made ridiculing The Warren Commission part of their stand up acts. But the establishment managed to stifle a robust discussion by (a) ignoring it and (b) ridiculing it when they had to acknowledge it. And those who stifle a robust discussion get rewarded. Even by the 'left.' Last year, RISING elected to invite on plastic surgery freak Gerald Posner. Gerald dismissed any questions about the assassination in CASE CLOSED. Since the publication of that book, turns out that Posner isn't just a freak in the mirror, he's a freak on the page. He plagiarizes non-stop. He got fired from THE DAILY BEAST for it. Then, turns out, it was discovered he plagiarized in books and writings prior to joining THE DAILY BEAST. But RISING thought he was an acceptable guest. Lies and all, right, doesn't matter a bit. Doesn't matter to VARIETY's Owen Gleibernman who cited the work of the plagiarist to attack Oliver's new documentary.
We have to wonder -- and we did ask an editor we know at VARIETY -- is that now the standard for the rag? You refute an argument by citing the work of a plagiarist?
And let's be clear, Owen refuted nothing. Owen offered nothing. He just dismissed and cited Twink-Faced-Frankenstein Gerald and added his own crackpot claims. Such as? Life is too damn short so we'll do one and only one:
Speaking of the throat wound, if it was, as the documentary claims, an entrance wound, caused by a bullet coming from the grassy knoll, wouldn’t that bullet have ripped through the side of Kennedy’s neck?
As we asked our friend as VARIETY, "How stupid is this bitch?"
He wrote that. Owen wrote that garbage. Took the time to type it up. If it was a throat wound, it wouldn't have come through the side of the neck. Has Owen ever taken his candy ass to Dallas? Has he been to Dealey Plaza? We asked community members Sabina and Dallas to each go there Saturday and stand in the approximate place where JFK was shot.
Now, per The National Archives, JFK was shot at three times. The first shot missed. Shots two and three struck. As we already knew before we looked at the photos that Sabina and Dallas sent us, the Grassy Knoll is in front of where shots two and third struck. Or, if Own prefers, "Front and to the side, front and to the side." (If you suffered through his piece, you got our joke there.) The car was not parallel to the Grassy Knoll when shots two and three were fired.
Maybe it's not just the stupid and the liars. Maybe in the case of Owen Gleibernman it's possible to be both someone who gets it wrong because their stupid and also because they're a liar.
They'll tell any lie that they think they can get away with.
We bring it up because it's over a month now since the alleged assassination attempt on Mustafa al-Kahdimi. The prime minister of Iraq claims he was targeted. He claims six of his bodyguards were injured (the Iraqi government has claimed, at different times, four, five and six -- no names have ever been released which is why Iraqis on social media are skeptical about the injuries -- among other things). Mustafa tried to ride the attempt or 'attempt' to popularity. He's desperate for a second term but the Iraqi epople don't want him and press-appointed king maker Moqtada al-Sadr isn't cray about him while the one to always watch, Nouri al-Maliki, loathes him. Nouri knows how to game the system and he's also been meeting with various blocs in his attempt to form the largest bloc and claim the right to name the prime minister designate. WHile Nouri scrambles, Mustafa eats pastries and licks his fingers. Fat and happy, right Moqtada? Caftans can only hide so much.
So the day after the attempt or 'attempt' on his life, Mustafa shows up in public to proclaim he is strong and well and he knows who is behind the attempt (or 'attempt').
It's a month later.
Where are the arrests?
Or the arrest if it was some sort of 'lone gunman' flying the drones.
Where are the arrests?
Seems to me that a real attack, a real attempt to assassinate the prime minister of a country would result in arrests -- especially if they were claiming to know who carried it out. Seems to me that not making any arrests is saying that anyone can get away with anything which would make Mustafa a huge target.
The government of Iran, in various state publications, is claiming that the US government was behind the attack. That's something thats existed on Iraqi social media since the day of the attempt (or 'attempt'). That argument goes that the US backed Mustafa (true) and they realize Mustafa will probably be replaced because he's so unpopular so they staged an attack that would draw sympathy for Mustafa and force the country to rally around him.
If that is what happened, the US government is really stupid. There's been no rallying around Mustafa and only an idiot would have believed that there would be. He's unpopular. Not because he has bad breath, because he's done nothing. He promised he'd come in, hold early elections, and then leave But the early elections got pushed back. He's done nothing to address corruption.
Real assassinations have taken place. Protesters and journalists have been wounded and killed. And their killers -- members of the Iraqi government -- walk free.
Mustafa will give a fiery remark or show up for a photo-op but that's it.
People don't trust him and they don't like him.
Where are the arrests?
Again if it was a real attempt on his life, the failure to make any arrests sends a message that attempting to assassinate him is okay and no big deal.
