Just say no more Nixons

Wesley Pruden (Washington Times) notes:

The wheel that goes around comes around, as life teaches us all, even Hillary Clinton. She was 27, a reckless and ambitious lawyer for the House Judiciary Committee, working to impeach Richard Nixon. She couldn’t imagine that she would one day be the Nixon of the Democrats, a reckless and ambitious presidential candidate forever tracking mud and grit through the house.
Sometimes history repeats itself in curious and fascinating small particulars, as if the man on the other end of “the moving finger” entertains himself by writing all those juicy single lines that can never be recalled. She was sacked for breaching the ethics that guide lawyers. Even then she wrote her own rules to live and work by, accommodating only herself.
Little by little, and then in leaps and bounds, she became Richard Nixon writ large. This would be an epic for journalists and writers who appreciate Nixonian tragedy but Hillary lives a life in politics that is not exactly charmed, but protected in an age when partisan politics is all.
Jorge Ramos, the Univision television network moderator of Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, put the cat among the lazy pigeons when he posed the question that the big names of show-and-tell television punditry avoid asking. Senor Ramos put it to her plain and to the point:
“If you get indicted, will you drop out?”


Hillary Clinton is Richard Nixon come back to life.

C.I. also noted that this week in "The Nixonian Candidate: Hillary Clinton" and she was weighing in on the debate as well, also on the topic of Hillary's refusal to state she would drop out of the race if indicted:

So at last night's debate, Cranky Clinton is asked if she'll drop out of the race if she's indicted and she refuses to address that.
Which would appear to indicate that, in case she is indicted, she wants to leave all options on the table.
Can she get anymore craven?
If indicted, Hillary Clinton plans to continue to seek the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
The reality is that the federal investigation alone should have had her making like John Edwards in 2008 and rushing to announce she was bowing out.
You just don't do that.
You don't risk an entire political party's nomination -- an election -- on the hopes that you may not be indicted.
Just the cloud of suspicion over her should have been enough for her to do what was good for others and drop out.
But what she has demonstrated is she does not operate on what is good for others, her only concern is herself.


Amen.  It's time for Hillary to be sent packing.

She is Richard Nixon and the country should not have to endure another Nixon.


This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"



Friday, March 11, 2016.  Chaos and violence continue, the US government is accused of yet again lying about Iraq, the Iraqi government kills Sunni civilians, Moqtada al-Sadr holds another rally to back his best buddy Haider al-Abadi, and much more.


Thursday, the US Defense Dept announced/claimed:


Strikes in Iraq
Attack, fighter and ground attack aircraft and rocket artillery conducted 15 strikes in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of Iraq’s government:

-- Near Baghdadi, a strike destroyed an ISIL vehicle.

-- Near Kirkuk, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit.

-- Near Kisik, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL fighting position.

-- Near Mosul, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL fighting position.

-- Near Qayyarah, a strike destroyed an ISIL rocket rail.

-- Near Ramadi, four strikes struck two separate ISIL tactical units and destroyed four ISIL heavy machine guns, two ISIL supply caches, 11 ISIL improvised explosive devices, three ISIL vehicles and an ISIL vehicle bomb and denied ISIL access to terrain.

-- Near Sinjar, five strikes struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL assembly area, an ISIL tactical vehicle, 12 ISIL rocket rails, an ISIL supply cache and six ISIL fighting positions.

-- Near Tal Afar, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL fighting position.


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.


The bombings continue and are passed off as working towards peace.


And the Iraqi government, gifted with weapons and aircraft from the US and Russia, carries out its own bombings to ape the 'peace' efforts of bombings.


And the bombs fall on populated areas, never forget that.

So many in the media work overtime to cover that up, to pretend these bombs hit empty areas and that civilians are never killed.

It's a lie.












  • Iraqi Sunni woman killed yesterday by Iraqi army airstrikes on




  • The Iraqi government killed Sunni civilians in those bombings.




    's Tears moving down their cheeks Every idea and every memory caused pain Tears of Wipe them ??


    So much propaganda swirling around such a small piece of land.  But Iraq couldn't be made miserable if the truth was acknowledged, could it?

    Did someone say Whore of Baghdad?

    Yes, Jane Arraf.  She Tweets this morning.
















  • Why is Jane Arraf Tweeting about protests?


    She spent all her time since the Hawija massacre ignoring real protests.

    Oh, that's right, this isn't a real protest.

    It's a rally, a propaganda effort on the part of cleric and movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr to back the current prime minister Haider al-Abadi.

    It's not a protest.

    Only a whore like Jane would call it protest.

    And remember, her whoring on Iraq goes back to the 90s when she was covering up for Saddam while working for CNN.

    Jane's been lying for years.

    Decades.

    Maher Chmaytelli (REUTERS) offers a truth bomb, "Iraq's powerful Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr wants Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to stay in power but replace his cabinet with professionals with no party affiliation so he can fight corruption, the head of the Sadrist bloc in parliament said."


    Did that reality just send Jane Arraf scurrying like the rat she is?


    Probably.

    Mohammad Sabah (AL MADA) reports Haider is scheduled to name his Cabinet members in the coming days.

    Well, the reality, he'll name some nominees.

    Parliament has to approve them.

    Equally true, his efforts to kick out members of his Cabinet currently?

    Not covered by the Constitution.

    Parliament can strip someone of the post.  The person can decide on their own to resign.

    But the Cabinet does not serve at the pleasure of the prime minister.

    That's not written into the Constitution.

    As Haider al-Abadi already knows because it's a reality Nouri al-Maliki had to live with -- publicly -- throughout his second term.

    So there's Moqtada whoring his followers to call for the Constitution to be trashed.

    And no one wants to go there or address that.



    ALSUMARIA notes that State of Law has expressed concerns about these demonstrations.  State of Law is the political coalition that is headed by former prime minister and forever thug Nouri al-Maliki.  It must rankle Nouri that what he was held in check on, Haider may get away with.



    In news of real protests -- the ones you don't hear of because they're real -- AL MADA reports that citizens in Muqdadiyah on Wednesday took the street in large numbers to protest the lack of safety and demand better security.

    Jane Arraf never Tweeted on that, of course.  Why would she?

    Jane Arraf has never been anything but a megaphone for whomever happened to be the leader of Iraq going all the way back to Saddam Hussein.


    Let's stay with reality for a moment more.

    Western media echoing the US State Dept has made a number of claims this week.

    But they may not exactly qualify as true.

    ALSUMARIA reports that the Chair of Parliament's Defense and Security Committee has announced that, despite us claims, there has been no chemical weapons officer of the Islamic State that has been captured.  These reports, he insists, are attempts to breed fear and terror.


    The western world is full of Judith Millers.  Damn shame it's so short on truth tellers.
