Hillary was not more qualified than Al Gore, JFK or LBJ

    I review some of the dishonesty of a feminist scholar who blames Trump on Millennial feminists for



Yes, she does.

Some.

And it's a good article.

But it repeats the lie that Hillary was the most qualified candidate ever without questioning that claim.

At the start of the month, we took on that lie at Third with "Hillary was not 'the most qualified candidate ever..." which includes:

Al Gore?

The 2000 Democratic Party presidential nominee had enlisted in the military in August 1969 and was discharged in May of 1971.

He served in the US Congress from 1976 to 1993 -- 17 years.

He served 8 years as vice president of the United States.


Hillary had more qualifications than Al Gore?


 No, she did not.


We could go on and on but we think we've established the point already with just three examples of more qualified past candidates: John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Al Gore.

Hillary wasn't just a lousy candidate, she was also not an immensely qualified one.

She certainly was not "the most qualified candidate ever to run for president" and only ahistorical liars and idiots would make that claim.



The lie that she was the most qualified candidate needs to be put away.


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

 
Tuesday, April 18, 2017.  Chaos and violence continue, The Mosul Slog continues, Human Rights Watch's Kenneth Roth continues to ignore Iraq and continues to lie, and much more.



Don't you get tired of the paid liars.

Trina rightly called out the former FEC commissioner in"Ann M. Ravel is a stupid ass who needs to shut the hell up."


Ravel's calling for restraint and censorship of political speech.

Ravel needs to learn the Constitution as well as the history of America.

While Ravel foams at the mouth about the right-wing, she ignores the liars on the left.





We've killed hundreds of Iraqi civilians in 2 months because Trump decided to loosen the rules of military engagement.






America Resurgent doesn't give a damn about the civilians in Iraq.

They don't even give a damn about the ones killed since Trump came into the White House.

They were silent as Barack aided and armed the government of Nouri al-Maliki which persecuted and tortured Sunnis.  They were silent as Nouri bombed civilians in Falluja.  They were silent as Hayder al-Abadi continued that tradition.

They don't give a damn about Iraq.

The US government killed thousands of Iraqi civilians every year under Barack -- despite Barack being elected to end the Iraq War.

America Resurgent is a group of liars who toss out anything to try to spread their lies.

But they don't care about Iraq.

And they're not calling for an end to the war.

Like Blood Whore Hillary, they're just fine with killing people.

And make no mistake, when they talk about Republican voters, they're fine with killing them as well.

America Resurgent is a hate machine designed to protect the corporations, not to help the people.

Not to help the people of Iraq, not to help the people of the United States.



In a sane world every British MP who endorsed the illegal Iraq war should be banned from public office. A 'mistake' that big is unforgivable





Exactly.

And that same rule should be applied to Australian politicians and those in the US.


But there are enough liars in the world to justify US politicians voting for the Iraq War.

And there are enough liars in the US to pretend like the Iraq War ended.




IMPORTANT Abbas brigade announced that they are ready and operations in west (Tal Afar) will start soon.





Well good.

It's day 182 of The Mosul Slog.

Good to know Hayder and his troops are 'ready' to emerge from yet another break.

: Video shows heavy fighting between and the |i army in Western today. An army tank was destroyed and is burning.






Day 182.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs notes:



Since the start of military operations to retake Mosul six months ago, nearly half a million people have been displaced from their homes.
“The sheer volume of civilians still fleeing Mosul city is staggering,” said Lise Grande, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq.
“Our worst case scenario when the fighting started was that up to one million civilians may flee Mosul. Already, more than 493,000 people have left, leaving almost everything behind,” said Ms. Grande.
The UN estimates that as many as 500,000 people remain in ISIL-controlled districts in western Mosul, including 400,000 in the densely populated old city. Humanitarian partners are working around-the clock to expand emergency sites and camps to shelter the hundreds of thousands more who may flee in coming days and weeks.
“Mosul has pushed us to our operational limits,” said Ms. Grande. “1.9 million people have received life-saving assistance since the fighting began. Front-line organizations have been providing food, water, shelter, emergency kits, medical support and psycho-social services. We’re reaching families who have fled and families who have stayed.”
“We’re doing everything we can but this has been a long battle and the assault on the old city hasn’t started,” said Ms. Grande. “The battle in western Mosul is very different than in the east— it’s much tougher. There are more trauma injuries, homes are being destroyed, food stocks are dwindling quickly and families are at serious risk because there isn’t enough drinking water.” “Civilians in Mosul face incredible, terrifying risks. They are being shot at, there are artillery barrages, families are running out of supplies, medicines are scarce and water is cut-off. Nothing is more important than protecting civilians—nothing,” said Ms. Grande.
Under international humanitarian law, all parties to the conflict are obliged to do everything possible to protect civilians, ensure they have the assistance they need and limit damage to civilian infrastructure.

Doesn't sound like success.

But helping the Iraqi people was never the goal at any stage of this never-ending Iraq War.


Day 182 and INSIDE SYRIA MC offers:

For the past months, Washington has faced the urgent need to distract the world’s attention from its devastating failure in Mosul in order to hide the huge number of casualties among the local population. Perhaps, this became one of the main reasons for carrying out a new full-scale campaign to topple and discredit Bashar Assad.
However, every effort that is making by the U.S. to hide its failures, in fact, is futile. The ‘counter-terrorist’ operation in the Iraqi Mosul has been going on for more than 6 months. According to the Pentagon, the number of losses among the coalition forces has already reached at least 9,000 military personnel and 1,600 units of military equipment. Of course, we must admit that the overwhelming majority of casualties are among the Iraqi military. But we should not forget that the Iraqi soldiers are led by generals of the international coalition. Thus, all the losses during the assault of Mosul are the result of U.S. direct command.

It’s not a secret that the U.S. indiscriminant air strikes lead to a daily increasing number of civilian casualties. Considering the fact that all this is happening under the patronage of the United States, the natural question arises – how effective is Washington in fighting terrorism, if it can’t minimize the losses among civilians?


Day 182.

This is what it looks like to flee for your life from . Since the battle begun, up to 500,000 people have risked everything to leave.








That's the reality of war.

Here's another reality, Kenneth Roth is addicted to war.

He's also addicted to lying.


Assad chemical attacks are part of pattern of attacks on civilians & health care: on .






Kenny Loser has no proof that Assad did anything.

But he's a liar and liars don't need proof.

And if you doubt he's a liar, he's spreading Annie Sparrow far and wide.

Who is that?

The War Hag stupid enough to marry . . . Kenneth Roth.

Guess needed disclosures don't matter when you a war whore, right Kenny?


Annie is ugly but, hey, so is Ken.  It was a match made in hell.

If you're looking for reality on Syria, hop on over to CONSORTIUM NEWS.


Robert Parry asks whether the new Syria-sarin crisis is another case of Al Qaeda fooling Official Washington,


Robert Parry notes the sudden disappearance of Russia-gate and explains why,






Or you can listen to Kenneth Roth -- a man so lacking in scruples that he fails to tell the world that the 'expert' he's reTweeting is so ignorant that she married him.


Maybe that's why Kenny didn't disclose it, he knew how stupid it would make her look?
