The endless garbage from US 'news' outlets

US President Donald Trump spoke Saturday to the Conservative Political Action Committee.

What's interesting is the US press reaction which, as usual, is gossipy, bitchy and all around useless.  That's POLITCO, that's CNN, that's all the whore ass bitches you can think of.

What a bunch of giddy, useless bitches one and all.

You have to go to the foreign press to find actual news.  ANADOLU AGENCY headlines their report "Trump admits failure of US policies in Syria, Iraq."

U.S. president on Saturday criticized his country's foreign policies in Iraq and Syria, saying that his administration will focus on fixing up America's infrastructure rather than fighting "endless wars".
During his two-hour speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Donald Trump said that [ISIS] will be defeated "hundred percent" in a day or two and reiterated his administration's firmness to pull American troops.
"We will leave a small group of guys and gals [soldiers] but we want to bring our people back home. It is time," Trump said in the annual event in National Harbor, Maryland.
"We would be in Syria for 4 months but we ended up 5 years. Just funny."
He slammed the Middle East policies of former U.S. governments, recalling his first-time visit to Iraq in 2017* when they had to turn off all the lights at the military plane before landing for security purposes.
"Think of this. We spent seven trillion dollars in the Middle East and we can't land a plane with lights on, 20 years later. How bad is that!" Trump said. 

[* actually 2018.]

Those remarks?

Actual news.  And in a country with a real media, they'd be reporting them.  But we don't have a real media in the US.

They should all be ashamed of themselves.  There are real life issues taking place and instead of reporting, they're serving up garbage.

They need to be held accountable.

    Pakistan Court Orders Implementation of Measures to Address Obstetric Fistula

    From the Center for Reproductive Rights:

    The Center for Reproductive rights welcomes a ruling by the Sindh High Court in Pakistan directing the government to implement measures to provide access to obstetric fistula care in the province of Sindh, including the creation of fistula repair centers and the recruitment of qualified gynecologists to government hospitals.

    The ruling by the Sindh High Court is in response to a petition filed in 2015 by Sara Malkani, Advocacy Adviser for Asia, demanding that the government take measures to prevent and treat obstetric fistula, a devastating pregnancy-related injury that affects hundreds of women in Pakistan every year.  The petition was filed on behalf of Kiran Sohail, a mother of six who developed obstetric fistula after having her first child.  She was left untreated for more than eight years. Gynecologist Dr. Shershah Syed, President of the Pakistani National Forum on Women’s Health and Tehrik-e-Niswan, a leading woman’s empowerment NGO were co-petitioners.

    The petition, which was developed through the Center’s South Asia Reproductive Justice and Accountability Initiative (SARJAI), demanded that the government ensure affordable access to, and information about, treatment for obstetric fistula in every district in the province of Sindh. The public interest petition sought to hold the government accountable for denial of timely and adequate treatment of obstetric fistula as violations of women’s fundamental rights under the Pakistan Constitution, including their rights to life and dignity. The petition also demanded that the government comply with its international treaty obligations under the Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights.

    Since the petition was filed, the High Court has passed numerous interim orders directing the government to frame policies related to obstetric care in consultation with civil society organizations.  These orders led the government to develop policy proposals and set aside budgetary allocations to improve the availability of treatment for obstetric fistula. “The High Court ruling reflects unprecedented recognition by a court in Pakistan that the government is constitutionally obligated to ensure the availability and accessibility of quality obstetric services,” says Payal Shah, Acting Director of the Asia Program at the Center for Reproductive Rights. “This is a crucial step forward to ensure women’s reproductive health and rights in Pakistan.”

    The Court has asked the government to submit a compliance report in three-months to show that its progress towards implementation of the Court order.  The Center for Reproductive Rights and its partners will continue to monitor the measures taken by the government over the next few months to ensure that it fulfills its human rights obligations.

    In less than one week, 154 US military veterans have committed suicide. That's almost one every 60 minutes, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. War-Criminals, like John Bolton, send young men and women to commit atrocities based on lies and propaganda...then they return and realise the truth...

    The claim that sanctions on only hurt a handful of top officials is completely false. Sanctions fall hardest on society's poorest. In Iraq, they killed over 500K children. Even The Economist admitted that sanctions lead to starvation.

    This is exactly right. They accused opponents of the Iraq War of supporting Saddam. They accused opponents of US involvement in the war in Libya of supporting Gaddafi. They accuse opponents of US intervention in Syria of being pro-Assad. Same scummy tactic now used for Maduro:

    We promised Libya’s dictator Gaddafi that if he gave up his nuke program, we wouldn’t overthrow him. He gave them up, and we blew him away. NK’s Kim won’t make the same mistake. Just another negative consequence of short-sighted regime-change war policies
  • “Lift the sanctions if you care about the Venezuelan people. Do not invade Venezuela. The last thing they need is Elliott Abrams and John Bolton stomping all over their country with heavy boots.” Thank you Roger Waters.
  • You have to be either gullible or disingenuous to think the likes of Bolton and Abrams, war criminals responsible for the suffering of millions of Iraqis and Latin Americans, just innocently want to send “humanitarian aid” to help “liberate” the people of Venezuela. 🙄
