Day after day Big Media contradicts our reporting on the relationship between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Only rarely, usually while spinning new tales of how brilliant Barack Obama is, does the truth emerge in Big Media and our version of reality is confirmed.
Big Media publishes and republishes the fiction that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are a swell “team of rivals’ without any friction and that Hillary Clinton is the lapdog of Barack Obama (”Once she joined Obama’s team, her tenure was devoted to shaping and promoting Obama’s message.“).
We have published article after article debunking this nonsense. Barack Obama has been at war with Hillary Clinton since Day 1 and Hillary Clinton is well aware of the viperous treachery and boobery contained in the garbage can called Barack Obama.
The Team of Rivals narrative is nonsense historically and utter rubbish in regards to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Today that nonsense narrative is smashed once again and leaves Obama lovin’ Ben Smith speechless and bereft of snark:
“From Ryan Lizza’s interesting story on Obama’s foreign policy:
Holbrooke had been a devoted supporter of Hillary Clinton during the Presidential campaign, and she protected him from Obama aides who viewed with suspicion his sizable ego and stream of positive press clippings. When a top official at the White House tried to push Holbrooke out, in early 2010, Clinton intervened on his behalf. But Holbrooke still could not get a one-on-one meeting with the President. And at the crucial national-security meetings on Afghanistan Clinton did not adopt Holbrooke’s views. She sided with Gates and the generals in calling for the maximum number of soldiers to surge into Afghanistan. Obama agreed to send thirty thousand more troops, although he insisted that they would start coming home in July, 2011. Holbrooke’s widow, the writer Kati Marton, who has been reviewing her husband’s memos and archives, told me that they “tell a dramatic story of a fractured relationship between the State Department and White House.”
On December 11, 2010, while meeting with Clinton at the State Department, Holbrooke suffered a split aorta, and he died forty-eight hours later. Bill Clinton spoke at Holbrooke’s memorial service, held on January 14th at the Kennedy Center. “I loved the guy—because he could do,” Clinton said. “Doing in diplomacy saves lives.” He went on, “And I never did understand how people would let a little rough edges, which to me was so obvious what he was doing, it was so obvious why he felt the way he did—I could never understand people who didn’t appreciate him.” Several people told Marton they thought that Bill Clinton was sending a message to Obama.”
Ben Smith does not have the intellectual integrity to admit that our reporting is accurate and his “team of rivals, team player” buffoonery is fiction. Ryan Lizza, author of “The Consequentialist“, fails to address the “dramatic story of a fractured relationship between the State Department and White House.”
Lizza’s article does however have a great many examples of that “fractured relationship” and even more troubling examples of Obama boobery which endanger this country:"You two having a fight?" asked Renee (Vanessa Willaims) to Lynette and Tom as she entered their home. "Well you won't even know I'm here." And she headed onto the fridge. Renee is a really underwritten character over and over. But Vanessa makes her funny and fleshed out.
I'll write about Desperate Housewives tomorrow night.
Tonight, I want to recommend this from Keith Jones (WSWS):
A US predator drone strike killed 25 people in the village of Spinwam in North Waziristan yesterday. According to a Pakistani government official, the dead included at least five children and four women.
In response to mounting public outrage, Pakistan’s government has repeatedly denounced the US drone strikes in recent months, calling them “unhelpful” and urging that they be discontinued or at least massively scaled back. But the Obama administration and the Pentagon have brushed these complaints aside, publicly insisted that the missile strikes are a pivotal part of the AfPak War, and continued to mount such strikes at a rate of well over one per week.
While Washington postures as the foremost proponent of international law, it claims the right to violate Pakistani sovereignty at will, so as to carry out summary executions with callous disregard for civilian life.
Do you get what we're doing? It's as though you're having a birthday party for your kids and some of his or her friends and this object flies overhead and begins shooting killing people.
There is no excuse for what is going on. There's no excuse for the judge and jury death squad. This isn't about democracy, this isn't about protecting anyone. This is all b.s. And people are dying.
How would you feel if your loved ones were killed?
The people of Pakistan feel the same way. And I wouldn't blame them if they hated the US for the drone war. We have no right to be doing this. We have no excuse for it. And Barack Obama should rot in hell for what he's done. I'm not joking. The Bible is very clear. It's obvious Barack's never bothered to read it. (Or apparently the Constitution.) But he will face punishment and God will most likely show Barack all the mercy Barack showed the people of Paksitan (which would be none).
He probably shouldn't have posed as a Christian. That probably won't go over well either. I do believe in Judgment Day. I do believe we stand before the Lord and get an accounting of our actions and then our reward or our punishment. It's fine if you don't agree with me. But that is what I believe. And I believe when Barack stands before the Lord he's going to suddenly 'realize' what he always knew -- that his actions are indefensible and shameful and criminal.
