Will Kelly attack the widow now?

predictably, 🍊  does “I WAS Respectful, bitch!”

aand another thread listing Kelly’s 20 lies (+ 7 more)

Summary thread – what happened on Character Counts week

 

and a brilliant response to NYT bothsidery

another analysis

Update

The story grows uglier still with Gen Kelly jumping in to viciously attack the Congresswoman – and reiterate that soldiers sign on to be killed

and she answers

and also

After beating the protesting athletes over the head with the flag and the fallen soldiers (as recently as this morning, after ignoring the 4 soldiers who died in Niger – he golfed when their bodies arrived, when questioned, 🍊

deflected by trying to smear Obama in this word salad

and translated in high school lingo

when laughter ensued, he came with an uglier more pointed lie that Fox, NBC trumpeted

and 🍊0 himself  repeated in an interview

except that the calls are made to the spouse for married soldiers

And just as it seemed he reached bottom, he eventually met one of the widows (not father) and had this to say

and after people reacted in horror

he accused people reacting of lying

full package of rage today

the accusation of lying is against yet another black woman

and now it’s 🍊  vs the Gold Star  wife

who also confirmed the congresswoman account

which makes this earlier tweet prophetic

but so far, he sounds threatening – to the Congresswoman

*the woman*

and the war on the congresswoman continues despite confirmation from the widow

 

.

Predictable, the Congresswoman is getting threats from 🍊 ‘s Nazis

This captures it

and more on that press conference

and a thread from a veteran

But wait, there’s more

and we still don’t know why they died

.

other despicable news

and no call whatsoever for her

even worse

Let’s also remember

and more reviews are in

even from Fox

and from Khizr Khan

and in Boston Globe

and a very poignant commentary

That’s how he gets absolved. That’s how he always gets absolved. There’s always somebody willing to step up and push their soul to the middle of the table for him to gamble with and, when he loses, because he always loses at the game of being human, he reneges on the bet because that’s what he always does.

and

And now, by deploying the memory of his son, he’s given his inexcusable boss that boss’s most recent alibi for that boss’s most recent offense against human decency and the dignity of his office. There’s a great sadness in that.

and this was more slandering

and debunking

.

and

Now we’re told we’re not allowed to argue with generals

.

and now, time for the behind the scene leaks

.

My pinned tweet is all about the language of propaganda which the Russians once perfected and exported it to us.

These days, lots of examples.

In the “now it can be told” category

from the guy who just spoke at the Values summit

metaphors sometimes fork for the truth – an this one is endorsed by the author

there’s a Twitter account that does the work I am highlighting here. This is a great example

debunking from Krugman

with the best explanation

and as “fake news” is the go to denial this makes a good summary

winging it

this one is naked perversion, no disguise

this is here purely for entertainment – although  could pretend it’s the language of images/satire

000💃💃💃000

I noted at the time he opened the door for a recount/redo

His lawyers did to:

but that of course didn’t stop the accusations – having it both way

000💃

I thought I was awake, but not until I read this tweet

Of all the reactions to the documents leaked by wikileaks, this takes the cake

It’s from a Moonie Times writer, and was re-tweeted by David Axis of Evil Frum.

And it shows the basis of “American exceptionalism:

Our liars are bigger than your liars!

It’s the point of arrogance where everything “us” – or rather US is great. Crimes, lies, wars, corruption – we do it better than anyone else!

Obama Times and the rest of the media reports victoriously

Economy Gains Impetus as U.S. Employers Add 290,000 Jobs

The problem with that headline is that is a lie. Who worked on this? Anderson?

At the very best, employers added 192,000 jobs, the other 188,000 were added by some accountant on a guess

The birth/death adjustment (guess) added 188,000 jobs,

Yes, the word “guess” is from the report, which is nothing more than a survey – a more extensive poll. It leads to ridiculously self-contradicting headlines such as this one

Second, there is a number of jobs the economy has to add monthly just to keep up with population growth. Looking at Robert Reich’s analysis for the March report

Second, since the start of the Great Recession, the economy has lost 8.4 million jobs and failed to create another 2.7 million needed just to keep up with population growth. That means we’re more than 11 million in the hole right now. And that hole keeps deepening every month we fail to add at least 150,000 new jobs, again reflecting population growth.

A census-taking job is better than no job, but it’s no substitute for the real thing.

In other words, 150,000 is the number needed to just keep stagnating rather than further sinking. And the rest of the 42.000 is less than the number of census jobs.

If Jake Tapper’s facebook entry is based on solid facts

More on job numbers — 65k of those new jobs are govt jobs, such as census, 231k private sector, including 44k in manufacturing

then indeed, the actual number of jobs created (not adjusted by technicality) is under the maintenance level.

Which is why the unemployment is at 9.9 and there’s a more interesting number buried in the actual report

The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks and over) con-
tinued to trend up over the month, reaching 6.7 million. In April, 45.9 percent
of unemployed persons had been jobless for 27 weeks or more.
