THIS JUST IN! CRANKY CALLS OUT RUSSIA AND PRAISES SAUDI ARABIA!

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

🆘‼️😂🔥 Saudi Arabia has financed 20% of Clinton's election campaign, but manipulated the US elections? WOW!



REACHED FOR COMMENT, CRANKY CLINTON TOLD THESE REPORTERS, "I'VE ALWAYS FOUND SAUDI ARABIA TO BE MORE PROGRESSIVE THAN RUSSIA WHEN IT COMES TO WOMEN'S RIGHTS.  THAT'S THE TRUTH JUST LIKE EVERY WORD FROM MY MOUTH IS THE TRUTH.  I AM ALWAYS HONEST.  I NEVER LIE.  IGNORE THE FBI.  IGNORE EVERYTHING.  IF YOU DO I WILL RUN IN 2020 AND I WILL!  I WILL!"

FROM THE TCI WIRE:

More and more, I think what any occupant of the White House needs is a car with twin 11-year-olds in the backseat, bored, hopped up on Monster and kicking the seat in front of them while repeatedly asking, "Are we there yet?  Are we there yet?"

Are we there yet?

That's one of the most important questions that president-elect Donald Trump will face once he's sworn in as President of the United States.

And someone needs desperately to define where ''there" is.

The Iraq War, or at least this century's installment, started in March of 2003.

Two months shy of 14 years, the war continues and US troops are still engaged in it -- from the air and on the ground.

As a point of reference, WWI and WWII did not last as long -- did not last as long combined.

Yet still the Iraq War continues.

Erik Gustafson (THE HILL) offers four things to remember regarding Iraq.


1) Victory in Mosul does not mean the ISIS threat is over.
2) Young democracies like Iraq are not the place for strongmen.
3) Reconstruction must address the longterm needs of the Iraqi people.
4) Iraq's ability to secure its future is limited by serious economic shortcomings.


A fifth?

Maybe . . . don't take your eyes off Iraq?  Don't ignore it?






Terrorism in Iraq gets far less attention, but Iraq was the site of the deadliest terrorist attack in 2016.







Yep, it does get less attention.

Why is that, Kenny boy?

Because you used your Twitter feed to campaign for Hillary Clinton?

I'm sorry, I thought Human Rights Watch was politically neutral.

Had you just focused on Iraq, maybe it would get the attention it needs.

Had you just Tweeted about HRW's Iraq reports, it might have gotten attention.

But before the election you thought you were slyly promoting Hillary and post-election you've had a tantrum or two.

Maybe if you'd focus on human rights and the work of HRW, Iraq could get the attention it deserves.

If you're part of the problem, that's on you.

    THIS JUST IN! CRANKY READY TO STEP IN IF NEEDED!

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

    AFTER A DEDICATION CEREMONY IN D.C. YESTERDAY, A STILL EMBITTERED CRANKY CLINTON GRANTED AN INTERVIEW TO THESE REPORTERS TO EXPLAIN WHY SHE WAS PLANNING ON ATTENDING THE INAUGURATION OF DONALD TRUMP.

    "AS I SAID WHEN PEOPLE WERE TELLING ME TO DROP OUT OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY RACE FOR PRESIDENT IN JUNE OF 2008, 'WE ALL REMEMBER THAT BOBBY KENNEDY WAS ASSASSINATED IN JUNE IN CALIFORNIA.' ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.  AND I NEED MY COUNTRY AND MY CULT TO KNOW THAT -- SHOULD ANYTHING HAPPEN -- I WILL BE PRESENT AND WILLING AND READY TO STEP IN AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE."

    ASKED IF SOME MIGHT CONSTRUE HER COMMENTS AS A THREAT, CRANKY CLINTON RESPONDED, "ME?  MAKE A THREAT?  REALLY?  ME?"



    FROM THE TCI WIRE:


    Let's stay with the industry first.

    Meryl Streep is not a star and  never has been.

    She has 'femme' appeal among eastern seaboard critics -- 'femme' appeal as VARIETY used to word it in the fifties.

    Most people will not pay to see Meryl which is why she can't open a film and why her films are flops.

    She's made 66 films and her average domestic box office is $33 million.

    That's ticket sales.  That is a joke.

    She is a joke.

    Not one of her last five films has even made $30 million at the box office.

    She is not a star.

    She's an overpraised actress.

    Try to imagine a reel of Meryl highlights?

    Does anyone remember anything?

    There's DEATH BECOMES HER -- but credit for that goes to Robert Zemeckis and Goldie Hawn.

    DEATH BECOMES HER goes to Meryl's problems.  In the late 80s, she'd finally found a way to fill in her otherwise hollow characters (this happens when she moves into comedy) but in 1992's DEATH BECOMES HER -- and all that's followed, Meryl's projecting into her own palm.  She can't interact with other characters and it's as though she has no body.

    We're not talking about sex appeal.  She lacks that and few men or women ever become stars without sex appeal.

    But we're talking about a performer divorced from her body.

    There are many finer actresses than Meryl.  Lily Tomlin immediately comes to mind.  Every scene is a work to marvel with Lily.  That's especially true when Lily co-starred with Meryl in Robert Altman's last film.  You watched Meryl do all the same things, same fussy business she does with each role, all the mechanics (as Pauline Kael long ago pointed out) and you never feel reality, you just feel like Meryl's doing yet another performance that her drama teacher will applaud.  Yawn.

    Lily's creating a new character.

    Meryl may do accents but her characters are all the same.

    Lily's Margo in THE LATE SHOW and Violet in 9 TO 5 and Linnea in NASHVILLE and Edweena in ALL OF ME and Doreen in SHORT CUTS and Elle in GRANDMA and Frankie in GRACE AND FRANKIE are all different and distinct characters.  They move differently, they gesture differently, Lily alters her body and her voice for each role.

    Lily's co-star in GRACE AND FRANKIE is Jane Fonda.  Meryl has done 66 films.  Where is her Bree Daniels? 

    I always argue that Jane gave the best performance of any actress in the second half of the 20th century with KLUTE.

    Meryl's never matched that moment on screen, let alone surpassed it.

    Back to Lily.

    Lily's been nominated once for an Academy Award -- only once. 

    OSCARSOWHITE# got it wrong.

    It's OSCARSOCLASSIST#.

    And don't complain about the actresses denied nominations -- worthy actresses -- unless you want to face the reality that Meryl doesn't deserve 19 nominations.

    But she's received them.

    Not because she's outstanding like Lily Tomlin or because she's given an amazing all out performance like Jane Fonda, but because of the class system -- an upper, middle class, eastern seaboard woman who went to Vassar and Yale.

    Debra Winger is a better actress then Meryl but Debra's background's working class.  So the fussbudgets among the 'critics' don't rush to crown Debra.

    It's a class issue.

    And when Meryl won for her awful portrayal of Margaret Thatcher (in the fact challenged film), that meant Viola Davis lost for THE HELP.  Viola's performance had life, passion and believability.

    So, yes, it is an issue that matters.

    Because Meryl's a WASP, she doesn't have to excel, she merely has to be adequate.

    And when she goes on TV and presents herself as 'the left' that's a lie that needs to be called out.  She is not opposed to war.  She is not concerned with illegal spying.  She is hack for the Democratic Party.

    THIS JUST IN! CLINTON A KGB AGENT! EXCLUSIVE REPORT!

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

    IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THESE REPORTERS -- MUST CREDIT BULLY BOY PRESS &  CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE -- AT 7:42 A.M. EST THIS MORNING, FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE CRANKY CLINTON CONFESSED SHE WAS AND HAD BEEN AN AGENT OF THE K.G.B.

    "IT WAS WHAT I FELT NEEDED TO BE DONE.  BILL WAS HAVING ONE AFFAIR AFTER ANOTHER AND IT WAS GETTING SO BAD IN THE WHITE HOUSE THAT I THOUGHT I'D SOON BE SITTING AT HOME BAKING COOKIES.  BUT INSTEAD, I WENT TO THE SOVIET EMBASSY HERE IN D.C. AND SIGNED UP."

    IT WASN'T THAT EASY, CRANKY ADMITS.  

    "THEY TRIED TO STEER ME OVER TO THE MARINES BUT I HAD ALREADY BEEN TURNED DOWN THERE IN THE 70S -- AND FOR THE SAME REASONS -- I WAS A WOMAN AND I WAS TOO OLD.  I SAID, 'LOOK BUCKY, I'M THE FIRST LADY, I HAVE ACCESS TO ALL KINDS OF SECRETS!'  THEY MADE ME SWEAR I WOULDN'T GET PREGNANT AND THEY MADE CLEAR THEY HAD NO FMLA BUT THEY DID TRAIN ME.  AND I WAS TOP OF MY CLASS.  WHICH IS WHY THEY AGREED TO FUND MY SENATE RUN."

    CRANKY TOOK A MOMENT TO SIP FROM HER CUP OF TEA -- WHICH SHE POURED BOURBON IN PREVIOUSLY -- AND COLLECT HER THOUGHTS.

    "THE ULTIMATE GOAL WAS FOR ME TO BECOME PRESIDENT," SHE EXPLAINED.  "SO PUTIN AND I CREATED OUR LITTLE PUBLIC TIFF.  IN PRIVATE, WE GET ALONE.  I MEAN, WE GET ALONG.  WE REALLY GET ALONG.  REALLY REALLY GET ALONG.  I WON'T WANT TO GET GRAPHIC BUT I HOPE YOU GET MY POINT -- HIS PENIS, MY VAGINA, I CAN DRAW YOU A PICTURE."

    FISHING A PEN OUT OF HER PURSE AND USING A NAPKIN, CRANKY PROCEEDED TO DRAW ONE OF THE FILTHIEST AND MOST GRAPHIC, OBSCENE ILLUSTRATIONS THAT EITHER OF THESE REPORTERS HAVE EVER SEEN.

    CRANKY THEN EXPLAINED, "I DIDN'T GET ELECTED.  SO NOW I CAN COME OUT.  I WAS AN AGENT OF THE K.G.B.  AND, YOU KNOW WHAT, I REALLY DID IT FOR THE WOMEN.  FOR THE GIRLS, ACTUALLY.  THE YOUNG GIRLS.  I WANT THEM TO GROW UP IN A WORLD WHERE THEY KNOW THERE ARE NO LIMITATIONS AND THEY CAN BE ANYTHING.  ANYTHING.  EVEN  A TRAITOR WHO SPIES FOR ANOTHER COUNTRY.  GOD BLESS THE U.S.A. AND GOD BLESS ME."





    But now Hayder thinks the high death count is contributing to the desertion rate.

    It's a slog.

    And it has no clear aims.

    It has no clear goals.

    And it has no real accomplishments.




    Iraq: Nearly 115,000 people displaced, 50,000 children affected by military operations. update is here:





    That's the hallmark of 'liberating'  Mosul -- just as it was the hallmark of 'liberating' Ramadi and 'liberating' Falluja before.

    There is no great moment in the operation.

    Why is that?

    Because nothing is being addressed.

    June 19, 2014, over two years ago, US President Barack Obama declared the only solution to the political crises (plural) in Iraq was a political solution.

    Well over two years later and there's still no political solution.

    Nor is it even being worked on.

    The US State Dept never worked on it because John Kerry was too busy playing dress up -- still nursing those wounds over the Swift Boat campaign against him.  

    And so all the US does is drop bombs on Iraq.

    This morning the US Defense Dept announced:

    Strikes in Iraq

    Attack, fighter and remotely piloted aircraft, as well as rocket artillery, conducted three strikes in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of Iraq’s government:

    -- Near Mosul, three strikes engaged an ISIL tactical unit, destroying seven front-end loaders, four command-and-control nodes, two land bridges, a vehicle-bomb factory, a vehicle and a steamroller. Twenty-four supply routes were damaged.

    Task force officials define a strike as one or more kinetic events that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative, effect. Therefore, officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIL vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against buildings, vehicles and weapon systems in a compound, for example, having the cumulative effect of making those targets harder or impossible for ISIL to use. Accordingly, officials said, they do not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike.



    Every day since August 2014, 28 months straight, the US has bombed Iraq.

    It's not helped address any of the issues.
