White Phosphorus, The Mosul Slog, etc

It's amazing how much Hillary Clinton can jabber away in public.

And amazing how what she says has so little importance.

  1.   Retweeted
    ISIS and the Clintons have the same bankers: Saudi Arabia & Qatar
  2. (of course) that and fund . Sham war on terror!

Is there a reason that 'journalist' Christiane Amanpour didn't ask about the above?

The soon to be sixty-year-old fancies herself globally knowledgeable so is there a reason she didn't ask about this?

It's not like she had her mouth full.

No, that's supposedly the Gulf War when a full mouth kept Christiane silent.

Interesting, isn't it?

But it's the same media that allowed Hillary to run a content free campaign, so it's no surprise that they continue to avoid real issues and allow her to spew the agenda at each encounter.

This is whats been happening in Mosul Iraq today. The illegal use of white phosphorus by the US on civilian areas.

That seems more likely. The US government used it in Iraq before.

It would make more sense for them to be using it now -- not Iraqi forces.

RETWEET - US bombs hospital in Mosul today with white phosphorus, 484 died this week in Iraq

: Video shows heavy /|i airstrikes with white phosphorus on the hospital complex in Western . Massive destruction!

Let's make this a talking entry because I've been sick all day.

"Mike Prysner on Venezuela" went up a little earlier thanks to Bonita who asked in an e-mail if I was ignoring Mike's reporting on Venezuela because I don't like him?

I wasn't aware he and Abby Martin were reporting on Venezuela.

That's the reason he was 'ignored.'

I also happen to like Mike.

My only disagreement with him is regarding Chelsea Manning who he credits for informing Iraqis, years after, what was going on in their country -- their own country.

They knew what was going on.

That's a disagreement, that's not a dislike of Mike.

Mike's one of the very few who stood up under Bully Boy Bush and continued to stand up and speak out under Barack.

I have a lot of respect for Mike.

Michael Tracey?

A lot of e-mails on that.

I haven't seen the video of him and Maxine Waters.

Maxine spent 8 years under Barack embracing war, I don't have a lot of respect for her anymore.

Michael is being made fun of by some.

I question the attack -- and it reads like an attack -- by NEWSWEEK considering past issues between Michael and their reporters.

I have read Michael's Tweets on the issue and don't see any reason he needs to be mocked or made fun of.

An e-mail insists The Mosul Slog will end "in a day or two."

Maybe so.

But today was day 228 of The Mosul Slog.

I've said it's a slog.

I've not said it would last forever.

We started counting because Elise Labbot (CNN) insisted it wasn't a slog.

Another e-mail notes "Death threats? Maybe they're 'jokes' (Ava and C.I.)" and how Ava and I commented on Kathy Griffin but not Bill Maher.

Ava and I have repeatedly commented on Bill Maher over the years.

Two examples -- 2016's "TV: Women and Power" and 2017's "TV: Free speech."

That's only two.

We don't like him.

His views are repugnant.

He attacks Muslims and Arabs repeatedly.

Its amazing to read people insist that he's not a racist.

Where have they been?

Lying to themselves.

Bill Maher's long-term and obvious casual racism reminds me of Fareed Zakaria's plagiarism. Establishment just pretend it doesn't exist.


But grasp that we didn't weigh in on Kathy's joke or 'joke' when it happened.

We wouldn't have weighed in on her press conference either.

The reason we did was because she brought an 11-year-old child into it.

That's why we called her out.

She's vile and disgusting.

But if she'd not brought a child into the press conference, we would have continued to ignore her.
