Save us all

Heaven save us from the dumb f**ks.  They really are all around and they never realize how stupid they are.


A real . Columbia University. Harvard Law School. Married to the one woman for 25+ years. Loving father. Made healthcare for all possible. Legalized gay marriage. Ended Iraq war. Dropped veteran homeless rate by 50%. Won Nobel Peace Prize.

Barack didn't "legalize gay marriage."

That would be the US Supreme Court with their decision in 2015's Obergefell v Hodges.

Is it really that difficult to grasp?

Apparently it is for Not Funny And Won't Die Barnett.

He didn't make healthcare for all possible -- he made it 'possible' (a law) to buy health insurance -- there's a difference.

Did he drop veterans' homelessness by 50%?

No, not really (the highest estimate was 47%) but, most importantly, his promise was he would end it by 2015 (he made that promise in 2010).  He didn't do what he said -- what a shock.

As for the Iraq War, it has not ended.

But when your head's up your ass and your only output is d-list celebs making -- or attempting to -- funny videos, I guess reality and perspective aren't features of your world view.

The Iraq War continues.

You can lie all you want -- and many do -- but it continues.

He sounds as stupid as the neocon WEEKLY STANDARD with their January 5th article "There Have Been No US Strikes Against ISIS in Iraq in 2018."

Per the January 5th morning release by the DoD, no strikes from January 1st through the 4th.  That has THE WEEKLY STANDARD crowing "in 2018!"  But I guess they have to crow, they are responsible for so many deaths.  That blood will never wash away.

In Baghdad, protests return.  ANADOLU AGENCY reports:

On Friday, hundreds of former army and police personnel -- sacked for allegedly cutting and running before the [Islamic State] onslaught -- gathered in central Baghdad’s Tahrir Square amid a heavy security presence.
In late 2014, Iraq’s interior and defense ministries dismissed tens of thousands of security personnel in the Nineveh, Saladin, Anbar and Diyala provinces amid dereliction-of-duty allegations.
Participants in Friday’s demonstration in Baghdad shouted slogans demanding their reinstatement in the Iraqi security apparatus.
“We believe we were treated unfairly,” Majid al-Yasiri, protester and former policeman, told Anadolu Agency.
“Many of us were sacked even though we had been on leave at the time [of the 2014 retreat] or had been instructed by our commanders to redeploy to other areas,” he said.

Meanwhile, yet another article (this one from ARAB NEWS) focuses on corruption and mentions forever thug and former prime minister Nouri al-Maliki.

In other news  . . .

  1. Our attorneys finally got to talk to the American held by the U.S. military in Iraq since September — he said he wants us to continue the challenge to his detention that we filed on his behalf 3 months ago.

Some Tweets from journalist Margaret Kimberley:

    I’m paraphrasing but this is what Obama said to . “I’m sorry for your loss but f**k you.” In 8 years Obama DOJ only prosecuted 2 cops. The one who killed was not one of them. He is still on the force and got overtime pay for appearing in court.

    FWIW "Trump Never Wanted To Be President" makes defeat all the more abysmal ...
  14. If Trump starts his own war it will be because Israel and Saudi Arabia want him to. That means democrats will go right along.
  15. Trump is a fascist. Trump is insane. Trump is stupid. Trump never wanted to be president at all. His predecessors were smarty pants ivy leaguers who wanted the job. They killed a lot of people all over the world, expanded incarceration, destroyed public assistance. So whatever.

    "Russiagate" as Religion: "This secular religion has attracted hordes of converts in the first year of the Trump presidency...Sometimes—like the stories about Russian interference in the French and German elections—they are not retracted even after they have been discredited."

    Can't wait for Newsweek's "science writer" to start churning out some "Black on Black crime" and "Black man shot by police was no angel" pieces. Hopefully she has some awesome "woman sexually assaulted was wearing a short skirt" articles she could write up, too.

    I don't know why people are losing their minds over this tweet. This is just the US corporation finally having a puppet that doesn't sugarcoat things. The US has been bombing innocent people 93% of the time since its inception 1776. Trump isn't what needs to be stopped.
