THIS JUST IN! SETH HAS NO SENSE OF SELF!

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


WE HAVE TO ASSUME IT'S DUE TO FAMILY GUY AIRING AIDS 'JOKES,' HAVING BRIAN BE A RACIST DOG (WHO BARKS AT AFRICAN-AMERICANS), MAKING 'JOKES' ABOUT PEDOPHILIA WITH THE CREEPY NEIGHBOR, PLOT LINES WHERE THE DOG BRIAN WANTS TO SLEEP WITH AN UNDERAGE GIRL, QUAGMIRE DRUGGING A WOMAN AND ATTEMPTING TO TAKE HER BACK TO HIS PLACE AFTER WHILE FILMING A  REALITY SHOW, . . . 

OOPS TURNS OUT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT A STATEMENT TUCKER CARSON MADE ON FOX NEWS.


FAILED ADULT ACTRESS ALYSSA MILANO CHIMED IN AND ASKED THAT WE QUOTE HER ON THE FAMILY GUY TOPICS.

I can’t even imagine this kind of cruelty.




Over a year before (April 2013), we'd offered "Seamless transition? Shinseki wasted the last four years."  There was no excuse for it.  Leon Panetta, as DoD Secretary, told Shinseki he'd agree with whatever worked.  He was all for stating it.  Shinseki was the hold up.

Later when Barack met with Hagel and Shinseki, the understanding was that the issue would immediately move forward.  It didn't.  A year later, Shinseki finally resigned.


All this time later, the EHR still isn't a reality.

The foot dragging was bad in 2013 when it effected a smaller number of veterans.  Now it's effecitng a lot more.  Each year, in fact, the number effected increases.  I can go back to 2006 with Congress asking the VA and DoD to get this implemented.  That's 12 years ago and there's still no EHR.  This is a scandal and the only bigger scandal on this topic would be the refusal of the press to seriously cover it.

Dropping back to last Thursday's hearing . . .

US House Rep Mark Takano: Dr. [Ralph] Erickson, last month, as you know, the VA entered into a contract with Cerner to support its efforts to modernize its electronic health records system.  With the development of a system where VA and DoD may share -- while -- while the development of a system where VA and DoD may share electronic health recordfs will directly increase the quality of and access to healthcare for veterans, it will also significantly improve the healthcare solutions as it will allow for the mining and analyzing of date on a much larger scale.  The impact this type of date is likely to have on VA's research arm will be incredible.





It would be, if it ever happened.  It would be able to pin point health clusters and issues that were developing and had developed.  But, for that to happen, the EHR would have to be implemented and you can't implement something when, as Erickson noted, it is still "under development."


Again, this is a serious issue and it's one we've covered for years.  It would be really great if this issue -- that everyone agrees is needed -- could be resolved and the EHR could be implemented.  Maybe someday.

THIS JUST IN! NO SURPRISE THAT THEY ARE SAD!

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

   

THE CENTER OF DISEASE CONTROL IS SURPRISED BECAUSE IT TURNS OUT THE SAME TEENAGERS ARE MORE DEPRESSED.

LESS SEX AND DRUGS, GREATER DEPRESSION – WHO COULD HAVE GUESSED?

REACHED FOR COMMENT, FAILED ADULT ACTRESS ALYSSA MILANO DECLARED, “AS A FORMER TEEN I CHASED ALL MY BLUES AWAY WITH TEEN STEAM.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MY VIDEO WORK OUT TO THOSE WHO ARE DEPRESSED OR JUST CRAZY BUT ESPECIALLY FOR SOBER VIRGINS – I KNOW HOW AWFUL THAT CAN BE.” 
  





At the end of last week, the big news should have been about the Defense Dept refusing to attend a Congressional hearing on burn pits.  VA's presence was requested and they attended.  DoD's presence was requested but they didn't attend and numerous Committee members commented on the no-show.

At THIRD, we offered "Hold Trump accountable for his Defense Department."

It should have been a major media story but the media doesn't appear to care about US veterans.  Oh, they'll offer up empty slogans but they don't really want to report.

Which is how one of the biggest scandals continues to take place with no media coverage.

I said we'd return to the House hearing and here it is.

US House Rep Julia Brownley:  Furthermore, until a fully operative integrated electric health record system is set up between the two agencies, VA will continue to be beholden to DoD's willingness to cooperate.

What's she talking about?


The EHR.

It's an important tool.  VA House Committee Chair Phil Roe noted in the hearing, "I think we have an opportunity to watch a population throught its life."

Yes, it is a wonderful tool, one that could help countless veterans.

Could.

"I hope we do it right," Roe added.

He has to hope that because it is still not a reality.

When we first started attending the VA hearings in Congress and reporting on them here, Bully Boy Bush occupied the White House.  And back then, an EHR -- electronic health record -- was going to happen -- Congress and the White House were going to make sure.

Then, a few years later, Barack Obama was elected president.  During the campaign, one of the things he spoke of was the need for the EHR.

The EHR, you may remember, was a medical record that would start with a service member's induction into the military.  It would follow the service member throughout their time in the military.  Once they left the military, it would follow them through the VA.

Former US House Rep John Hall was among the members of Congress who understood that an EHR would be very helpful to veterans.  Not only would an EHR prvent medical records from being lost, it would also allow a veteran to get a full disability rating much easier.  There would be no struggle to go back and get records and testimony on what happened ten years ago in spot X.  You'd have it on your EHR and you would get your full disability rating, not a partial one based upon what paperwork you (the veteran) could provide or find years after the incident.

On the campaign trail, then-Senator Barack spoke of the importance of this and how it would be easy to do.

So, explain it to us, how did Barack spend two terms in the White House and leave without the ERH being implemented?

And where was the press?

I know where we were.  Check the archives, we called out this failure to implement the EHR repeatedly -- year after year -- right here.

Money was being spent on this effort -- US tax dollars -- and it wasn't happening.

THIS JUST IN! ABC CANCELS ALBERT EINSTEIN'S SITCOM!

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

IN A MOVE THAT HAS SHOCKED THE ENTERTAINMENT WORLD, ABC HAS CANCELLED IT'S TOP RATED SITCOM "ALBERT" DUE TO THE RACIST TWEETS BY SERIES STAR ALBERT EINSTEIN.


FORMER ACTRESS ALYSSA MILANO EXPLAINS, "HE CALLED THE CHINESE QUOTE 'INDUSTRIOUS, FILTHY, OBTUSE PEOPLE.'  PEOPLE!  AS IN 'YOU PEOPLE!'  CLEARLY ALBERT EINSTEIN MUST NEVER BE ALLOWED ON TV AGAIN."



FROM THE TCI WIRE:

Now, the top vote getter, Moqtada, has teamed with Hadi al-Ameri whose bloc got the second most seats in Parliament.


First, this move brings Moqtada very close to the 163 seats in Parliament needed to form a government.  By merging with Hadi al-Ameri, there is a combined 111 seats.  52 more seats are needed and that should not be too difficult to pick up.

Moqtada, from April and May of 2011, has political allies in leadership posts of many other blocs.  This would include the KDP (Massoud Barzani) which won 25 seats.  If he were to grab those, the PUK -- which has close links with the Iranian government -- would probably strongly 'suggest' that Jalal Talabani's PUK join with Moqtada as well.  They have 18 seats so that would bring Moqtada even closer to the 163.  (154 would be the total if both the KDP and PUK joined with Moqtada.)  (And the KDP is close with Iran as well.  But the PUK especially owes Iran after the backing and cover the Iranian government provided the Talabanis during the 18 months when Jalal Talabani was unable to speak or move but the Iranian government helped stifle efforts to call for Jalal to be removed from the office of president despite the fact that he could not carry his duties.)

Moqtada's other political allies include Shi'ite Ayad Allawi and Ammar al-Hakim.  Only one need join him and he's reached the 163 mark.

The whole point of the recount calls, for the US government, was to stop Moqtada from becoming a king-maker.  (Moqtada cannot become prime minister of Iraq himself.  He did not run for Parliament.  The prime minister has to be a member of Parliament.)  They griped about Iranian control and other issues.  (Violence was not one of the US government's issues but it never is, is it?  Gripes about Moqtada's refusal to go along with the invasion of his country came chiefly from US veterans.)

So Brett McGurk and US Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman worked very hard to rally support for various plans to wrest control from Moqtada.  That this has been very hard work is evident by the fact that Brett's hairline has crept further back -- and this is a man who had no hair left to lose -- not from the top of his head.


Moqtada read the room and knew what had to be done, team with Hadi al-Ameri.

This has two major results.

The first result is that talk of recounts and revotes -- unconstitutional moves both (per Iraq's Constitution) -- is now even harder to sell.  Had the US government been able to build an alliance with Hadi and Hayder al-Abadi, they might have been able to sell a recount or revote.  They would have had one of the top two winners (Hadi) calling for the move so it wouldn't have just played like the sour grapes of the losers like Hayder.  By teaming with Hadi, Moqtada has presented a united front and the US government better have a plan B because plan A just went up in flames.

The second result?  Brett never was very smart, was he.  He was good looking back when he had a full head of hair.  But pretty is never enough.  The plan Brett has been in charge of didn't just fail today.

Failure would be bad enough.

But this is worse.

Brett's efforts to secure Hayder al-Abadi a second term as prime minister resulted in the teaming of Moqtada and Hadi.  The two had issues and would not have naturally come together.  But now they have.  And grasp this, because the State Dept's already mainlining Tums this morning, Brett's efforts have united the two largest groups calling for all US troops out of Iraq.

And that's the nicest interpretation.

ALYSSA TEAM STEAM MILANO: AT ANGELA BOWER’S P.R. FIRM.  SOMETIMES PROFESSOR MONA OR PROFESSOR JONATHAN WOULD HELP.  IT WAS A LOT OF WORK.  A LOT.




AP can't get it right this morning.  It's Wednesday, Hayder al-Abadi has done his weekly speech as prime minister of Iraq.  In the speech, he announces that a body no one's heard of before, one he appointed from his own Cabinet has found 'irregularities' -- no details on what they are -- that will require calling off the votes of the displaced outside of Iraq and the displaced inside Iraq.

This would be the same Hayder, remember, who may be the outgoing prime minister because he did not win the elections last month.  Hayder did not come in first, that was the Moqtada al-Sadr's alliance.  Moqtada is the Shi'ite cleric and movement leader who was vastly underestimated by gas bags.  Hayder did not come in second, that was the party of the militias.  Hayder came in third.  Distant third.

And now he's saying the election results are being tabled -- for the displaced.


Oh, and it gets worse. 

Hayder's announced there will be recounts.

Why is that worse?

Because it's not allowed.


Ibrahim Saleh (ANADOLU AGENCY) reports:


Iraqi law does not allow election results to be annulled or manual vote recounts to be conducted, Iraq's Supreme Judicial Council said Tuesday.
“Article 8 of the Electoral Commission Law No. 11 of 2007 gives voters the right to challenge [poll] results before the Independent High Electoral Commission’s board of commissioners,” the judicial council said in a statement.
“If the plaintiff is not satisfied by the board’s decision, they can bring the issue before an electoral tribunal, which must rule on the appeal within 10 days of referral,” the statement read.
It added: “There is no provision within the law giving the judiciary the authority to partially annul election results.”
“Nor is there any provision within the law giving the judiciary the authority to request a partial recount of poll results,” the judicial council asserted.


So the loser, Hayder, who thought he'd win campaigning on his alleged defeat of ISIS doesn't like the results and thinks that's all it takes.

He doesn't have to follow the Constitution, he doesn't have to listen to the courts, he can just do whatever he wants, create his own commission and what he decides goes?

That's how it works now?
