THIS JUST IN! MAD MAXI PAD WATERS FALLS OUT OF HER CRIB!

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


MAD MAXI PADS WATERS IS STILL AT.

SHE'S INSISTED THAT "CROOKED HILLARY" IS A TERM THE RUSSIANS THOUGHT UP AND FED DONALD TRUMP.

WELL DAMN!

WE SAID D--A---A---H-M-M!

WE HAD TO THINK UP "CRANKY CLINTON" ALL BY OURSELVES.


During the height of the 2008 fiscal crisis, Waters helped arrange a meeting between the Treasury Department and top executives of a bank where her husband was a shareholder. Using her post on the House Financial Committee as leverage, she called Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson personally, asking him to meet with minority-owned banks.
When Treasury followed through, there was only one financial institution present: OneUnited. Had that bank gone under, the New York Times reported, Waters' husband would've lost as much as $350,000. Luckily for the Waters family, OneUnited received a cool $12 million in bailout funds.


GET AROUND ROUND ROUND, MAD MAXI PADS GETS AROUND!


And shame on so-called leaders -- Medea Benjamin and the others of CODESTINK, Norman Solomon and all the other disgusting persons who profited off the Iraq War (yes, raising your profile and, yes, selling books on the topic and videos on the topic and all the rest are profitting -- and before anyone brings up my public speaking, I have never charged a university, campus or organization a speaking fee or lodging fee or anything to speak about Iraq in all the time I have spoken about it since February 2002 -- I pay my own air fare, I pay my own lodging -- or stay at a friend's place -- and I accept no fee).

That war is ongoing and it just hit the 14 year mark.

That's a fact that Medea and Norman and all the rest couldn't find time to note -- not even a Tweet.

Shame on you.

You're disgusting and you're destroying the country.

Let's talk about how.

So if you were a horse-faced attorney who married a gay man who was in the closet, well, you entered into a sex-less marriage to enrich yourself and now you're carrying a baby thanks to modern science.

It's no surprise that you squawk about the Yazidis constantly.

They are not an important part of the story.

Were they wronged?

They were.

By a terrorist organization (ISIS).

So were other groups wronged -- bigger groups.

It's equally true that the Yazidis have been wronged in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein.  They are seen as "devil worshipers" and they are often attacked for that reason.

But terrorism doesn't exist in a vacuum.

Nor is terrorism an initiating event.

Terrorism is always a response.

ISIS did not one day materialize from the head of Zeus.

The seeds were sewn for it throughout Nouri al-Maliki's second term as prime minister.

His first term was bad enough.

It was so bad that despite cheating and bribing and throwing a fit to get his vote count upped a little, he still lost re-election in 2010.  (Ayad Allawi should have been prime minister.)

Nouri was already bad by that point.

And we called him out.

While others -- Scott Horton of Antiwar Radio, for example -- cheered Nouri on.

Most just avoided the issue.

And when Barack used The Erbil Agreement to install Nouri as prime minister for a second term, they said nothing.

And that was November 2010.

Where were you, CODESTINK, when Sunni girls and women were being raped and beaten in prisons and detention centers during Nouri's second term?

Where were you, Norman Solomon, when Sunnis were being rounded up and disappeared?

Or when their peaceful protests were being attacked by Nouri -- literally attacked, people participating in sit-ins were killed?

Must not embarrass Barack -- that was your mantra.

And during that time, as the Sunnis were persecuted non-stop, the foundation for the rise of ISIS was being built.

Now your stupid silence during all of that was appalling.

But your silence today is even worse.

THIS JUST IN! JOHN FEFFER EXPRESSES HIMSELF!

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

John Stauber Retweeted Adam H. Johnson
For anyone younger than 50, welcome to the era! have ignited a scam like they had going in 50s, 60s 😂
John Stauber added,





REACHED FOR COMMENT, NOTED RUSSIA HATER AND PEOPLE HATER AND WAR LOVER JOHN FEFFER RESPONDED, "HOGWASH!  AND I KNOW HOGWASH! I SLEEP IN HOGWASH! I BATHE IN HOGWASH!"


ARE THE RUSSIANS NOT PEOPLE?

"NO!" SNAPPED JOHN FEFFER.  "THEY ARE HIDEOUS.  THEY'RE DOGS!  THEY'RE WORSE THAN DOGS! THEY'RE FLEAS ON DOGS!  THEY EAT CHILDREN!  THEY ARE EVIL!  I AM JOHN FEFFER AND I KNOW THIS BECAUSE I KNOW EVERYTHING! STICK WITH ME, I WILL LEAD YOU INTO NEOLIBERAL LAND!"

WITH THAT, FEFFER TOOK OFF HIS PANTS AND TIGHTY-WHITIES, PUT HIS TIGHTY-WHITIES ON HIS HEAD AND RAN AROUND IN CIRCLES MAKING FART NOISES WHILE SCREAMING, "SMELL MY POOH HOLE! SMELL MY POOH HOLE!"

AREN'T YOU GLAD YOU MET THE 'RESISTANCE'?








It would appear that a large number of people who should be speaking out can't because elected persons in the Democratic Party have yet to give them their marching orders.


That's the difference between ethics and partisanship -- you're witnessing it right now.

And the difference between courage and silence? 

Look at 'leaders' like John Conyers and Barbara Lee who cower instead of speaking out as the suffering of the Iraqi people is set to hit the 14 year mark in mere days.

THIS JUST IN! IT'S WRITTEN ON HIS BODY - LIKE PRICE TAGS!!!


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


A counterpoint on Preet Bharara, whose vigor in targeting political corruption didn't quite extend to Wall Street:



THESE REPORTERS TRACKED DOWN PREET BAHRARA FOR HIS RESPONSE AND DISCOVERED HIM AT THE BODY BALANCE IN HOBOKEN WHERE HE WAS PREPARING TO HIT THE STEAM ROOM.

"SURE THERE ARE PLENTY IN MANHATTAN, BUT WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD RUB-N-TUG, NEW JERSEY ALWAYS HITS THE SPOT," PREET DECLARED PULLING OFF HIS PANTS AND BOXERS EXPOSING A LARGE TATTOO OF CITIBANK ON HIS LEFT FLANK AND "ENRON FOREVER" SCRAWLED JUST ABOVE HIS WELCOME MAT.

DESPITE THESE AND OTHER TATTOOS, PREET DENIES THAT HE WENT EASY ON CORPORATIONS.






"When the heartache is over, you know I won't be missing you," sings Tina Turner.  Amen.

When the Iraq War is over -- surely that day has to come -- there's so much I won't miss.

Chief among them self-deception.

Danny Sjursen has a post that's all over the internet.  Sometimes it includes the lie that the January march against Donald Trump was larger than the protests against the Iraq War.  No.  DC and LA had strong turnout in January.  But the Iraq protests spread out across all of the US -- not just media centers -- and they were huge.

It's typical of 'the resistance' to have spread that lie (not calling Sjursen part of 'the resistance').  They didn't take part in the protests against the Iraq War.  And now they try to build their lies on the foundation of real work.

We'll link to Sjursen's article at THE NATION because at least it ditches the intro that includes that lie about the January protests being greater than the 2003 protests against the Iraq War.

Sjursen declares the Bully Boy Bush "surge" of Iraq a failure.

There are facts and there are interpretations of facts.

I think Sjursen's failing in both.

Bully Boy Bush's surge (which we opposed, check the archives) was about (a) increasing the number of US troops in Iraq to address the violence and (b) this providing space for the Iraqi politicians to work on reconciliation.

Sjursen seems completely unaware of the second part.

He judges the first part to be a failure.

I disagree, it did what it was supposed to do.

He's not honest about what that was.

I'm tired of the self-deceptions people tell themselves to feel good.

(I'm also tired of pieces on Iraq that focus on Bush and Trump while ignoring Barack Obama.)


Sjursen talks about "civil war" (we used the term long before the surge) and how Baghdad became a Shi'ite city.

By the time Sjursen was part of the surge, we were already calling it what it was: Ethnic cleansing.

I'm really sorry that he can't deal with the reality of what went down in Iraq.

It was ethnic cleansing.

He can denounce Nouri (while never calling Barack out for giving Nouri a second term when the Iraqi people voted him out in the 2010 election).

He can talk about what Nouri did and the attacks on the Sunnis.

He just can't connect the dots -- we were doing so in real time, a decade later he still wants to self-deceive.
