Super Blood Moon

Today is January 24th, this time next week, January 31st, there will be something in the air you might not want to miss.  The super blood moon is what they are calling it.
Let me stay on the usual moon we see for a moment.  So Monday night, one of my children and I go out to eat Chinese after we did some cloth shopping.   I say, “Oh, look, a quarter moon.”  And my child asks what’s a quarter moon? 
I’m all about to blame the school and be all, “What are they teaching you!!!”
But then I remember that I taught the basics on the planets to all my kids.
And yet somehow . . .
At any rate, the super blood moon.  From FORBES:
This January 31st, something quite rare and special will happen. At 1:30 PM, Universal Time (8:30 AM Eastern / 5:30 AM Pacific), the Moon will reach its full phase for the second time in the month of January, making it a blue Moon. The full Moon also occurs very close to perigee, where the Moon makes its closest approach to Earth in its elliptical orbit, occurring close enough to create a Supermoon, where the full Moon is up to 14% brighter than average. And finally, the Moon will fully slip into the Earth's shadow during this time, creating a total lunar eclipse. NASA is calling it the "Super Blood Blue Moon." For observers in North America, it's the first time all three of these phenomena will line up since 1866.
NASA is urging skywatchers to head outside early on Jan. 31 for a look at what the space agency is calling a "lunar trifecta." It's the rare combination of a blue moon (the second full moon in a single calendar month), a supermoon (a moon that's full when it's at its closest point in its slightly elliptical orbit around Earth), and a total lunar eclipse or "blood moon," in which Earth's shadow upon the lunar surface gives it a reddish tint.
In the continental U.S., the best views of this "super blue blood moon" will be in the West, Gordon Johnston, a NASA program executive who blogs about the moon from the agency's Washington, D.C. headquarters, said in a written statement. "Set your alarm early and go out and take a look."
Hopefully, I’ll blog about this again.  But if I forget, I did give you a heads  up – next Wednesday, the 31st.


"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Wednesday, January 24, 2018.

Starting with these two Tweets:

To see what a hilarious trainwreck 's Reddit AMA was, read this - people forget that beyond all the Iraq War propaganda, this hero co-wrote one of the most insane & evil books of the last two decades with **Richard Perle**

In case all those fawning pictures with Kissinger didn't make it clear. Here's Hillary Clinton promoting Bill Kristol: neocon, Iraq war proponent, torture apologist, ultra-Zionist and founder of the Weekly Standard & Project for a New American Century

Anyone promoting Bill Kristol today is a hack (at best) or a War Hawk.

The 'resistance' is a media creation, not a movement.  They have no ethics and they rush to embrace liars responsible for the Iraq War.  That explains why so many support Hillary Clinton to begin with.  She pimped the Iraq War.  In 2008, she offered a tiny 'apology' when she was losing the primaries to Barack Obama and he was hitting her over the head for her Iraq War vote daily.  By 2016, that 'apology' had morphed into her declaring her vote was correct and Bully Boy Bush carried out the war wrong.

She reTweeted Bill Kristol and then so did her mindless whores.

It was so funny to watch so many -- including children's books author and horror hag Jamie Lee Curtis -- reTweet that garbage.  Apparently, love of children doesn't include Iraqi children.

Jamie Lee Curtis might think being born with a penis was mutilation but the real mutilation can be found in Iraq.


Another male born in FGH 2 days ago with multiple gross congenital anomalies in addition to CHD , he is the 1st baby to 2 young healthy couples with no previous history of any anomaly
Another male born in FGH with multiple gross congenital anomalies in addition to CHD , he is the 1st baby to 2 young healthy couples with no previous history of any anomaly

And . . .

"Findings suggest the enriched Uranium exposure is either a primary cause or related to the cause of the congenital anomaly and cancer increases," says a recent scientific report on the incidence of birth defects in Fallujah [Dr Samira Alani]

 That's from ALJAZEERA and let's note Dr. Mozhgan Savabieasfahani's 2013 "What's delaying the WHO report on Iraqi birth defects?" (also from ALJAZEERA):

Iraq is poisoned. Thirty-five million Iraqis wake up every morning to a living nightmare of childhood cancers, adult cancers and birth defects. Familial cancers, cluster cancers and multiple cancers in the same individual have become frequent in Iraq.
Sterility, repeated miscarriages, stillbirths and severe birth defects - some never described in any medical books - are all around, in increasing numbers. Trapped in this hellish nightmare, millions of Iraqis struggle to survive, and they call for help.

Somehow, Jamie Lee, your nonsense from TODAY I FEEL SILLY AND OTHER MOODS THAT MAKE MY DAY don't really cut it for what's going on -- continuing to this day -- in Iraq.

And all the children who have suffered because of the Iraq War are erased and silenced when you stoop to reTweeting Bill Kristol and presenting him as someone to listen to.

Don't make it a big deal
Don't be so sensitive
We're not playing
A game anymore
You don't have
To be so defensive
Don't you plead me your case
Don't bother to explain
Don't even show me your face
'Cause it's a crying shame
Just go back to the rock
From under which you came
Take the sorrow you gave
And all the stakes you claim
And don't forget the blame

I got my feet
On the ground
And I don't go
To sleep to dream
You got your head
In the clouds and
You're not at all
What you seem
This mind, this body
And this voice cannot be
Stifled by your deviant ways
So don't forget
What I told you
Don't come around
I got my own hell to raise

  1. MISCARRIAGE OF INJUSTICE as war is worst aborter of innocent infants from nuclear waste ammo (depleted radioactive uranium [DU} ever since Gulf War. Fallujah, Iraq war of 2003 still causing jelly fish birth defects often with twisted limbless bodies. World Enlighten New WEN
  2. DU munitions believed to be one of the causes of Gulf War Syndrome and the record number of still births and birth defects/grotesque deformations post Iraq-Invasion by Dubya

  2. please check victims of DE Uranium after bombings in Iraq. Not only Fallujah, Bagdad suffers with these birth defects too since 2003.

  3. Look up birth defects in Iraq as the result of depleted uranium rounds. Actually dont its the worst saddest thing youll ever see.

This is not a minor issue.  This is not unplanned or unexpected.

And it is past time that those who have supported the Iraq War were made to answer for what they have done.
