FADED CELEBRITY IN CHIEF BARRY O IS TRYING TO SORT OUT HIS LATEST PROBLEM: WHERE TO LOCATE HIS LIBRARY?
THERE ARE THOUGHT TO BE FOUR PLACES IN THE RUNNING BUT ALL RAISE CERTAIN ISSUES.
CHIEF AMONG THEM: CAN THEY GUARANTEE THE SAFETY OF EACH AND EVERYONE OF BARRY O'S COLORING BOOKS?
HIS DISNEY PERIOD, WHERE HE RELIES CHIEFLY ON BLUE, IS THOUGHT TO BE HIS MOST AMBITIOUS.
If you ever questioned the proposition that US politicians are basically crooked and dishonest, let's note two people writing about Iraq today.
Jack A. Smith (Dissident Voice) offers:
The U.S. war against Iraq ended officially December 31, 2011, but it has now metamorphosed into Washington’s air war against the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria. There are increasing hints U.S. ground troops may be sent in this year. (3,000 American military advisers are already there and 1,500 allied troops are expected soon.)
We can all follow that.
And now here's nutty Dennis Kucinich, former US House Rep:
Establish a US Commission on Truth and Reconciliation. America was led into a war against Iraq, a war which killed over 1 million innocent Iraqis, a war which was based on every manner of deceit. In our name, and with our tax dollars, countless people were either killed, injured or tortured, their homes ruined, the land destroyed. It is time for Americans to know the truth about Iraq and other wars. Let us push Congress and the President to create a US Commission on Truth and Reconciliation.
We must require the highest level of accountability from those who have held the highest positions in our government. Lies which took us into war and established a national security state have separated us from each other, and from the world. Let us reunite in the spirit of truth and justice, seeking the moral high ground and a newer world.
Can Dennis just stop f**king around and lying.
There will not be -- in the next 20 years at least -- a US Commission on Truth and Reconciliation. Why are you wasting people's time deceiving them?
There are things to focus on and your nonsense is not one of them.
You want a Truth Commission? How about you tell the American people about the flight you took with Barack? How about you explain how you got on that plane insisting you were sticking to your guns and not voting for ObamaCare but by the time you touched ground you were breaking your public promise? Why don't you tell the American people about that conversation?
It would be illuminating.
Not just to show the world how self-serving you are, but to explain how politics in the US really work.
Dennis is a disgrace. I've always felt that way.
Now he's writing of Iraq as if the illegal war is over. That's offensive enough.
But he's lying to the American people as well. A decision was made to go war on Iraq. That wasn't -- though Dennis loves to pretend otherwise -- a decision of just Republicans or of just Republicans plus Hillary Clinton.
It's not going to happen.
And this gets to the core of why I despise Dennis.
In 2004, in Boston, as he let down his supporters -- which really is the constant thread in the public career of Dennis Kucinich -- a young woman approached me crying, feeling he betrayed her and the rest and I comforted by leading her (eventually) in a chant of "F**k Dennis Kucinich!"
Dennis is never serious, Dennis is a con artist.
His runs in the Democrat parties presidential primaries -- which, let's be clear, is not running for president, he's never run for president -- are fake.
They're an attempt to corral people into the Democratic Party (and keep them from going to the Green Party or elsewhere). After his fake run, Dennis gives his little fake ass speech, after denouncing the party, urging his supporters to support the Democratic Party. He's a tiny valve intended to release steam and frustration before all of us on the left are supposed to join hands and march behind whomever the party's decided gets the nomination.
In 2008, Barack Obama 'won' Iowa.
After the early round of the caucus, Dennis instructed his followers to take their support to Barack.
At what point does that little bitch plan to take accountability for that?
I believe Barack's actions in Libya were illegal. I called them out here.
Dennis did so on Fox News. But never took accountability for his role in promoting Barack Obama and helping to make him the nominee for the Democratic Party.
Dennis has never, ever run for president.
Don't believe the lies of Amy Goodman.
He's participated -- poorly -- in the Democratic Party's primaries.
Cynthia McKinney ran for president, Ralph Nader ran for president, H. Ross Perot ran for president, Barack ran for president, John McCain ran, etc.
But Dennis never ran for president.
The most he ever ran for was the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
There's a huge difference between that and running for president.
Look at any of his speeches when he repeatedly sought the party's nomination in one cycle after another.
Read the speeches and ask yourself, "If someone really believes that, why don't they run for president?"
Dennis is a fake ass.
He lives to distract. Maybe because he's so nutty. Maybe because that's the role he's assigned himself.
But he's worthless time and again.
If he wants to matter, it's not that hard. Tell the truth about the plane ride. Explain to Americans how you changed your mind on that plane ride.
He doesn't want to talk about the truth.
Talking about the truth might change the system. It would certainly upset the apple cart. So instead, he keeps lying and distracting.
At a certain point, his freak show doesn't even deliver snorts of derision.
At that point, he becomes an embarrassment that the world simply can't afford.
Dennis could have ended the Iraq War at any point. Any member of the US Congress could have. Former US Senator Mike Gravel told those truths and the response was John Edwards and Hillary Clinton caught on mike talking about how to purge certain people from the debates.
