 BULLY BOY PRESS CEDRIC'S BIG MIX & THOMAS FRIEDMAN IS A GREAT MAN & ANN'S MEGA DUB  & THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS & THE COMMON ILLS  -- THE KOOL AID TABLE  

MEDICAL MIRACLE LAUREN BOEBERT -- THE ONLY KNOWN LIVING HUMAN BEING BORN WITHOUT A BRAIN -- CONTINUES TO SET THE STANDARD FOR TASTE AND DECORUM.

WORD EMERGED OVER THE WEEKEND OF BOE-BOE'S WILD AND DRUNKEN WAYS AT A DONALD TRUMP PARTY.  REACHED FOR COMMENT, BOE-BOE TOLD THESE REPORTERS -- MUST CREDIT  BULLY BOY PRESS CEDRIC'S BIG MIX & THOMAS FRIEDMAN IS A GREAT MAN & ANN'S MEGA DUB  & THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS & THE COMMON ILLS  -- -- "SURE, I GOT S**T FACED BUT A GIRL'S GOT TO PARTY.  SURE I GOT S**T FACED BUT LIFE CAN'T BE ALL JUDGMENT AND SCORN, GIRL'S GOTTA KICK UP HER HEELS AND GET THOSE LEGS IN THE AIR!  I HAD SO MUCH FUN.  THEY SAY JASON ALDEAN WAS THERE AND EATING THE HOT WINGS AND YOU KNOW THAT MOTHER F**KER IS FAT SO HE ATE WAY TOO MANY AND HE GOT THE SQUIRTY DUKES!  INSTEAD OF EMBARRASSING HIM, I GOT DOWN ON MY KNEES AND STARTED MOUTHING ON THE WET SEAT OF HIS JEANS SCREAMING 'MILK, MILK, LEMONAIDE, AROUND THE CORNER FUDGE IS MADE!'  SURE I GOT S**T FACED BUT THAT'S WHAT HIGH SCHOOL DROP OUTS DO EVEN AT THE AGE OF 36.  YEE-HAW!"


BOE-BOE STOPPED SPEAKING FOR A MOMENT TO BURP LOUDLY AND SHAKE HER HEAD BEFORE ASKING, "WHAT WERE WE TALKING ABOUT AND WHO ARE YOU?  WHY AM I STANDING HERE IN JUST A PAIR OF MARJORIE TAYLOR GREEN'S GRANNY PANTIES? "


FROM THE TCI WIRE:


THE TIMES OF LONDON quotes Former Royal Artillery officer-turned-author Christopher Lincoln-Jones stating, "The British Army would under no circumstances have fired on that convoy even if we could positively identify a Hamas gunman getting into one of the cars. You would know that every single person travelling in the car would die. It would be inconceivable that the British or the Americans would do that. The fact the Israelis destroyed all three cars is utterly unforgivable."  He's referring to the Israeli government killing the seven World Central Kitchen aid workers this week.  Australia's ABC notes, "The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said the killing of the seven aid workers from WCK was 'not an isolated incident'. As of March 20, at least 196 humanitarians, including at least 175 UN workers, had been killed since the start of the war on October 7, the OHCHR reports."  Josef Federman (AP) observes:

Israel enjoyed broad international support following the Oct. 7 massacre, which was the deadliest attack against Jews since the Holocaust. However, that goodwill has been replaced by impatience and outrage as conditions in Gaza worsen.

More than 33,000 Palestinians have been killed in the war, around two-thirds of them women and children, according to Palestinian health officials whose death toll doesn’t distinguish between civilians and fighters. International aid officials say roughly one-third of Gaza’s population is dealing with catastrophic hunger.

Initial expressions of solidarity from Israel’s allies have given way to calls for a halt to the fighting. Meanwhile, the U.N. world court, looking into genocide allegations against Israel, has ordered Israel to do more to protect Gaza’s civilians.

This isolation appeared to peak on March 25, when the U.N. Security Council, over Israeli objections, passed a resolution demanding an immediate cease-fire. The U.S. infuriated Israel by allowing the resolution to pass.

Things have only worsened for Israel since then, especially following its killing of seven aid workers in what it says was an errant airstrike. Six of the victims were volunteers from countries allied with Israel, antagonizing them and outraging U.S. President Joe Biden. The alleged Israeli airstrike on an Iran’s embassy in Syria and Netanyahu’s efforts to shutter the Arab satellite channel Al Jazeera have further alienated allies.


Today, THE WASHINGTON POST notes, "Israeli strikes that killed seven World Central Kitchen workers in Gaza earlier this week were 'carried out in serious violation' of the military’s procedures and were a 'grave mistake stemming from a serious failure due to a mistaken identification' that the convoy of vehicles was carrying Hamas operatives, according to the findings of an Israeli military investigation released Friday. The aid group has emphasized that its convoy had coordinated its route with Israeli military officials."  The Israeli government has 'completed' their 'investigation' into their own actions and it was all just a mistake, you understand, and complete accident and, here we'll even fire two people over it so it's all good, we're done, we're good here.

Not everyone rushes to agree with that nonsense.  


[T]he World Central Kitchen (WCK), which is calling for an "independent commission" to be created to investigate the killings.

The charity says Israel's military "cannot credibly investigate its own failure in Gaza".

Without "systemic change" within the military, there will be "more military failures, more apologies and more grieving families", the statement adds.

The charity says the "root cause" of the "unjustified" attack is the severe lack of food in Gaza and calls on Israel to "dramatically increase" the volume of aid travelling by land.


The 'investigation' insisted the problem was a "misclassification" -- a bag was mistaken for a rifle.


So what?  The Israel government wants the world to believe that nonsense?  Will they be sending all IDF members for an eye check?  Ensuring that all visual prescriptions are worn?  

This is nonsense.  

Before they attacked the three vehicles, they knew what the three vehicles were, they knew why they were there and they knew where they were headed.  I don't believe the lie that a bag looked like a rifle to begin with but even if it had there is the reality that they knew this was the World Central Kitchen aid workers and they still launched their attack.



In the anodyne language of military slaughter, it’s called a “triple tap”–three successive strikes to make sure you’ve eliminated your target–the target in this case being the occupants of three vehicles of the World Central Kitchen, who’d just unloaded more than 100 tons of humanitarian food to a warehouse in Deir al-Balah in central Gaza.

The cars were white and clearly marked with the humanitarian group’s logo. The route was in a deconfliction zone that had been cleared by the IDF for travel. The vehicles’ trip and purpose to Deir al-Balah had been coordinated with and pre-approved by the IDF. None of this mattered to the IDF officials operating a Hermes 450 drone that stalked the cars from above as they left the food warehouse.

Or perhaps it did matter. Perhaps the intent of the strike was not just to kill the humanitarian aid workers, but to kill humanitarian aid to Gaza altogether. 

How else to explain the logic of the IDF officers who ordered a drone strike on the first car after the convoy left the warehouse, then when survivors of the missile strike scrambled into the second car and called the IDF to describe being attacked, ordered a strike on the second car and then as the occupants of the last car rushed to rescue their injured colleagues, ordered a third missile strike, killing all seven aid workers.

If this was the goal of these murderous missile strikes, it seems to have succeeded. Within hours of the killings, World Central Kitchen executives announced it was suspending operations in Gaza and that the ship that sailing toward Gaza with aid shipments would return to Cyprus. WCF’s announcement was swiftly followed by ANERA, which runs the second largest humanitarian operation in Gaza after UNRWA, suspending its work in Gaza.

Rebecca Abou-Chedid, board member of the American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA), told CNN that her group had tried to coordinate with the IDF, yet had one of its aid workers, Mousa Shawwa, killed in an Israeli airstrike. “There’s something called ‘deconfliction’ in these war zones, where you let the military know where you’re going to be providing aid, where you’re staff is living, where they’re sheltering. And we did that. We confirmed the coordinates just a few days before the house that Mousa was living in was struck and that is why, with a heavy heart, we had to suspend operations…As you see, Mousa had been working for the day. He still had his Anera vest on and he came home and he was struck by a missile and many of his family were also injured. So we can’t keep people safe at home. We can’t keep people safe in the field delivering aid, like our colleagues were at World Central Kitchens, who also let the Israelis know exactly when their convoy would be traveling. We spent a lot of time talking about getting aid into Gaza, by air, by land, by sea. But less time, I think, talking about the fact that it’s human beings that reliably distribute that aid. And it’s a network that was built up by organizations like Anera over decades. We have over 20 staff in Gaza, but we have over 450 volunteers who make sure that that aid is distributed in a calm, safe, reliable manner. If that network falls apart, you can’t deliver aid by remote control. You can’t recreate that network. And that’s the red flag that we have been waving for weeks.”

The WCF convoy was attacked along a 1.2-mile stretch of the Al-Rashid Coastal Road, near the temporary pier, built from the rubble of bombed buildings, that has been used by WCF and other aid groups to unload humanitarian goods that reach Gaza by sea.

“Knowing how Israel operates, my assessment is that Israeli forces intentionally killed the WCK workers so that donors would pull out & civilians in Gaza could continue to be starved quietly,” said Francesca Albanese, the UN’s special rapporteur on the Occupied Territories. “Israel knows Western countries and most Arab countries won’t move a finger for the Palestinians.”

The IDF actually has a protocol for military strikes against humanitarian organizations. Let that sink in. The IDF has a protocol for strikes against humanitarian organizations. And the protocol is this, according to Haaretz, “the Army’s procedures state that those who must give the final approval for activities against sensitive targets, such as aid organizations, are senior officers at the ranks of division commander, commanding general, and even chief of staff.”

And this wasn’t the first time, WCF aid workers had been attacked by the IDF. Only two days earlier, an IDF sniper fired on a WCF car on its way to a food warehouse in the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis, shattering the car’s windshield. WCF filed a protest with the IDF. 



Zachary Basu (AXIOS) recaps mounting US outrage:

Zoom in: Outrage over the Israeli strikes that killed members of José Andrés' world-renowned nonprofit bubbled over Tuesday, with Biden issuing a statement torching Israel for failing to protect civilians and aid workers.

  • Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), Biden's closest ally in the Senate, said on CNN Thursday that the U.S. should condition its aid if Israel invades Rafah without a humanitarian plan: "I've never said that before. I've never been here before," Coons added.
  • Former Obama aides Jon Favreau and Ben Rhodes sharply criticized Biden after a Politico report described him as "privately enraged" by the WCK strikes: "These stories only make him look weak," Favreau argued.
  • Richard Haass, a pillar of the foreign policy establishment, called Thursday for the U.S. to consider "sanctions" on Israel: "I'm sorry it's come to this," the former diplomat said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Biden's favorite program.
  • Even first lady Jill Biden has urged her husband to "stop [the war], stop it now," Biden privately recounted at a meeting with Muslim community members on Tuesday.

The big picture: 55% of Americans said in a Gallup poll last month that they disapprove of Israel's actions in Gaza — crossing the majority threshold for the first time, even before the new wave of outrage over the WCK strikes.

Outrage is mounting all over the world.  EURONEWS reports:

The death of a Polish humanitarian worker in Gaza has sparked a new diplomatic crisis between Poland and Israel. 

Polish President Andrzej Duda criticised a comment by the Israeli ambassador as "outrageous," while the Foreign Ministry in Warsaw said it was summoning him for a meeting.

A 35-year-old Polish man was killed along with six others while distributing food to Palestinians under siege, working with the organisation World Central Kitchen. Israel has labelled the incident a “mistake” due to a misidentification, despite pictures showing that its vehicles were clearly marked.


As the outlet goes on to note, the Israeli government's response came via their ambassador to Poland -- Yacoy Livne, who immediately rushed to blame . . . the Polish and their "extreme right and left."  BBC NEWS points out, "Livne has been heavily criticised for his reaction to their deaths. "

Their own twisted version of BOUND

BULLY BOY PRESS CEDRIC'S BIG MIX & THOMAS FRIEDMAN IS A GREAT MAN & ANN'S MEGA DUB  & THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS & THE COMMON ILLS  -- THE KOOL AID TABLE  

CAITLYN JENNER AND MARTINA NAVRATILOVA DIED TODAY IN A SCISSORING GONE SORELY WRONG.  THE TRANSHATING WOMEN WERE IN DENIAL ABOUT THEIR AGE -- AMONG OTHER THINGS -- AND REFUSED TO USE LUBRICANTS.


MARTINA WAS PRETENDING THAT IT WAS STILL 1987 AND PEOPLE KNEW WHO SHE WAS WHILE CAITLYN WAS PRETENDING SHE WAS TONGUING DONALD TRUMP'S RIGHT LOAFER WHILE HE PUT HIS LEFT FOOT DOWN ON HER NECK WHEN BOTH WOMEN NOTICED TOO LATE THE SMELL OF SMOKE AND REALIZED THE FRICTION HAD STARTED A FIRE.


REACHED FOR COMMENT, DAUGHTER KENDALL JENNER STATED, "CAITLYN WAS A CONTINUAL EMBARRASSMENT TO ME.  THE HATE SHE PROJECTED ONTO OTHERS FINALLY RESULTED IN HER OWN DEMISE.  I WISH I COULD TELL YOU SHE WILL BE MISSED BUT I DON'T LIKE TO LIE."


KENDALL THEN ATTEMPTED TO HANG UP BUT WE STOPPED HER ASKING HER FOR A COMMENT ABOUT MARTINA.


"WHO?"


EXACTLY.



FROM THE TCI WIRE:


Yesterday, in NYC, it was a gathering of presidents as President Joe Biden was joined by former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama for a big fundraiser.  That's a single sentence and does not have enough interest for me to include it in the snapshot  -- let alone open with it.  What makes it news to me?   and CNN) report:

             

The event was interrupted at least four times by protesters, with at least three calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

“That’s alright. Let them go. There’s a lot of people who are very, very — there are too many innocent victims, Israeli and Palestinian. We’ve got to get more food and medicine, supplies into the Palestinians,” Biden said, according to journalists in the room, following one interruption. “But we can’t forget, Israel is in a position where its very existence is at stake. You have to have all those people. They weren’t killed. They were massacred. They were massacred.”

Ahead of the fundraiser, hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Midtown Manhattan to protest Biden’s support for Israel amid its war in Gaza and call for a ceasefire. Biden has called for a temporary ceasefire and the release of hostages held by Hamas.     


How embarrassing.  That's like a Hillary Clinton visits a college campus appearance.

Jeff Mason (TIMES OF ISRAEL) adds:


“Shame on you, Joe Biden!” one yelled.

Obama and Clinton offered a presidential perspective of the Gaza crisis that stressed the political realities of being in the White House.

A president needs to be able to support Israel at the same time as fighting for Palestinians to have more access to food, medical supplies and a future state, they said.

“It’s a lonely seat,” Obama said. “One of the realities of the presidency is that the world has a lot of joy and beauty, but it also has a lot of tragedy and cruelty.”



Boo!  Boo!  Let's all boo that from Barack!  Poor, little president, such a rough job.  What could be worse?


Uh, try living in Palestine right now for starters.

This was a fundraiser.  They're getting heckled at a fundraiser.  That's how deeply unpopular the US government's embrace of the assault on Gaza is.


The whole thing was a nightmare.  And that includes the visuals.  Who decided, for example, that the three men -- at a pricey fundraiser -- should all go tieless?  Did they think that made them look like regular people?


It didn't work for any of them but especially not for Bill.  He needed that tie to avoid people wondering if he'd stolen one of Hillary Clinton's pant suits for the night.  







There are other campaigns taking place.  Marianne Williamson, for example, relaunched her campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination not to secure the nomination -- Joe Biden has it -- but to raise important and needed issues.




Marianne Williamson:  Ten years ago, if I was, after I'd seen a patient and I told the patient what medicine or what treatment I wanted, ten years ago the question would have been, "What are the side effects?"  Today, the question is often -- more often, "How much will it cost me?"  You have 18 million Americans who cannot afford to pay for the prescriptions that their doctors give them.  And I don't believe that incremental changes are going to fix this.  We are already in crisis mode.  And if Washington doesn't see it, the average American does see it. People are living with-with the silent emergencies of poverty.  The silent emergencies of hunger.  You know we talk about COVID being an emergency.  COVID was what's called a screaming emergency.  Once the president declared that it was no longer an emergency and millions of people were thrown off Medicaid and SNAP benefits.  People were basically just told "Go back to life as you were living it" which was already an emergency -- a constant emergency.  The emergency of poverty.  The emergency of hunger.  The emergency of having to work two or three jobs just to put food on the table.  And I'll tell you something, at this point, what we should see as the emergency of hopelessness.  We should not talk about this mental health crisis as anything other than an emergency of hopelessness. and despair. 


Last Saturday, Democratic Party primaries were held in Louisiana and in Missouri.  Joe won both, no surprise.  In Louisiana, Marianne came in second with 4.7% of the vote and in Missouri she came in third with 1.6% of the vote -- second place went to "Uncommitted" which received 11.7% of the vote.

BULLY BOY PRESS CEDRIC'S BIG MIX & THOMAS FRIEDMAN IS A GREAT MAN & ANN'S MEGA DUB  & THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS & THE COMMON ILLS  -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

LITURGICAL COLOR: ORANGE (YELLOW IF LENTEN WEEKDAY)


REFLECTION: DONALD JOHNANUS TRUMP WAS BORN JUNE 14, 1946, INTO A CROOKED AND CORRUPT FAMILY IN JAMAICA OF QUEENS.  HIS FATHER WAS A TWO-BIT CON ARTIST AND HIS MOTHER OVERSAW BACK ALLEY ABORTIONS.  THE FOURTH OF FIVE CHILDREN, DONALD 1ST RECORDED MIRACLE OCCURRED IN SECOND GRADE WHEN, DISCOVERING HE HAD LEFT HIS SACK LUNCH AT HOME, WITH JUST HIS INDEX FINGER AND HIS RIGHT NOSTRILS, DONALD WAS ABLE TO DIG DEEP ENOUGH TO SECURE ENOUGH BUGGERS NOT JUST FOR LUNCH BUT ALSO FOR THE AFTERNOON SNACK.  MOVING INTO HIS TEENAGE YEARS, DONALD ATTEMPTED TO TURN REPULSIVENESS INTO CHARM -- A MIRACLE HE'S YET TO PULL OFF BUT CONTINUES TO ATTEMPT.

 FROM THERE, DONALD JOHNANUS TRUMP -- OUR LIABILITY OF LARD ASS -- JUST CONTINUED TO PROFIT FROM THE MISERY AND WORK OF OTHERS.



FROM THE TCI WIRE:


As the assault on Gaza continues, more protests and actions take place in response.  Maya Pontone and Rhea Nayyar (HYPERALLERGIC) report:


Protests and actions have taken place around the world.  JTA notes:

The University of Turin is suspending a collaboration agreement with Israeli universities and research institutes after a wave of student protests over the Israel-Hamas war.

The school’s academic senate voted on Wednesday to ban participation in an initiative financing joint research projects between Italy and Israel, while rejecting calls for a broader cessation of ties with Israeli universities.

The decision has raised concerns among Italian Jewish leaders even after the university’s rector emphasized that collaboration currently in place would continue.


 
Des Moines' KCCI notes, "People in Des Moines are calling for an end to the violence in Gaza in the wake of the Israel-Hamas war.  On Saturday, the Catholic Peace Ministry organized a rally outside the Polk County Democratic Party's convention at Lincoln High School." RTL explains, "After more than five months of war in Palestine, Luxembourg City saw another round of protests on Saturday. Between 200 and 300 protestors gathered in a demonstration organised by the Committee for Fair Peace in the Middle East (CPJPO). The protestors demand an immediate and sustainable ceasefire, an end to the Israeli occupation in Gaza and the West Bank, and the release of all hostages." ANADOLU AJANSI adds, "Israel's attacks on Gaza were again protested in marches Saturday in Vienna, Berlin and Dublin."  CTV reports, "Two of Quebec's largest unions joined a demonstration in downtown Montreal in the snow on Saturday in support of the Palestinian people.  The march was largely focused on a demand for an Israeli ceasefire in Gaza."  Anthony Segaert (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD) reports:

Police have arrested 19 people after they gathered at Sydney’s Port Botany to protest the arrival of an Israeli cargo ship they accused of transporting weapons and supplies for the country.

Hundreds of protesters, joined by federal Greens senator and deputy leader Mehreen Faruqi, began protesting close to the facility on Sunday evening before marching across Penrhyn Road, the main access point out of the city’s port facility.



Hundreds of people, including members of dozens of faith communities, walked 22 miles from Berkeley to Alameda on Saturday to advocate for a cease-fire in Gaza.

The 22-mile journey was intended to mirror the distance that those fleeing Gaza must travel to reach the Rafah crossing, where more than half of Gaza’s population has taken refuge, according to the Associated Press. The East Bay demonstration was one of more than 150 planned across cities in 19 countries in recent weeks, according to the Gaza Ceasefire Pilgrimage, an organization connecting churches and other faith groups to organize the demonstrations.

In addition to a cease-fire, the protesters are calling for the immediate release of all hostages, the flow of food, water, aid, fuel and humanitarian assistance, and the end of the Israeli occupation of Gaza.


 More and more people speak out.  Saturday, Philip Dewey (WALES ONLINE) reported:


Charlotte Church performed as part of a group singing in support of Gaza at Barry Island Promenade. The Welsh singer has lent her voice to a number of pro Palestine causes, calling for an immediate ceasefire on the Gaza Strip.

The Big Sing for Gaza event took place on Saturday at the popular tourist attraction, with fundraised for the Middle East Children's Alliance. Church led a choir on the promenade, singing "Let Gaza live", with the event also including kite flying, sand art and floral tributes.

Speaking at the event, Church said: "It's been a beautiful event, I feel very passionate about whatever I can to raise my voice to call for a ceasefire and to call to end the occupation of Palestine. What we're seeing happen in Palestine, what we're seeing happen to civilians, to children to babies, to birthing mothers, it's unbearable, it's unbearable to witness and I just (feel) like I have to do whatever I can as one small human to be with these other wonderful humans whose hearts are breaking over what is happened and what they are seeing, and what's being allowed to happen.

"Our government is complicit, America's government is complicit, and other world governments who are complicit in this and are still sending money and weapons to Israel. As a mother it's just too much, it needs to stop, it needs to end. I'll keep coming out until it does. Not just a ceasefire but an end to the occupation. Palestine has been under an apartheid system and a military occupation in Gaza since the 60s, and a really violent military occupation.


VATICAN NEWS reports that Cardinal Gianbattista Pizzaballa has termed the Gaza situation "objectively intolerable" and "Everyone -- religious, political, and social communities -- must do everything possible to put an end this situation."  AP notes U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres has called it a "moral outage."  Former UK Prime Minister David Miliband, International Rescue Committee president,  terms it "a failure of humanity" -- see video below.



And AOC started the weekend calling it "an unfolding genocide."  Lauren Aratani (GUARDIAN) reports:


Progressive US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the Israeli military campaign in Gaza an “unfolding genocide” in a scathing speech that demanded the Joe Biden White House suspend aid to Israel’s armed forces.

“As we speak, in this moment, 1.1 million innocents in Gaza are at famine’s door,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a speech on the House floor on Friday.

Citing 30,000 Palestinian deaths in Gaza and noting 70% were women and children, she continued: “A famine … is being intentionally precipitated through the blocking of food and global humanitarian assistance by leaders in the Israeli government. This is a mass starvation of people, engineered and orchestrated.

“This was all accomplished – much of this was accomplished – with US resources and weapons. If you want to know what an unfolding genocide looks like, open your eyes.”


Friday marked the first time the congresswoman has publicly called the ongoing violence in Gaza ― where more than 30,000 people have been killed by Israeli forces ― a genocide. Of those deaths, more than 25,000 have been women and children, killed in an offensive launched in response to the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack on Israel."
