BILL CLINTON warns lameduck Prez -- STOP trying to sabotage HILLARY - insider! With politico’s jacking up rumors that Brack Obama has promised his support to possible Hillary Clinton challenger Elizabeth Warren for the 2016 presidential race Bill Clinton has already been complaining to Dems about how he feels the President has been treating his wife, with one source claiming he’s even accused Obama of “deliberate sabotage!” During a recent fundraising appearance for Democrats in Florida, Bill was “overheard telling high ranking members of the Florida Democratic caucus that Obama was sabotaging Hillary’s chances to become the next President,” an insider told

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Let me finish tonight with a flashback. From the moment I heard about today´s shooting down of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine, I remember that 1983 shooting down of a Korean airliner over Soviet airspace (Korean Air Lines Flight 007). Back then, the Soviets, still in a Cold War mindset refused to even admit responsibility for the deliberate murder of 269 passengers including, U.S. Congressman Lawrence McDonald of Georgia who was aboard. Here´s how President Reagan reacted: REAGAN: What can we think of a regime that so broadly trumpets its vision of peace and global disarmament and yet so

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie blamed the Obama administration for the influx of immigrant children at the southern border, but didn´t rule out the prospect of accepting children in New Jersey on a case-by-case basis. "I have great empathy for that situation, but frankly the administration has done an awful job in securing our border, and they need to do that," Christie told reporters in Marion, Iowa, where he campaigned for incumbent Gov. Terry Branstad. "I don´t think ... it matters one bit what your Hispanic population is, as to whether or not you´re going to offer help and assistance," he continued.

Hillary Clinton: Europe
must lead on plane react
Politico, by Maggie Haberman    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/17/2014 10:53:55 PM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton says there’s “growing awareness” that Malaysia Airlines passenger plane was probably shot down by Russian insurgents — but argued that European leaders must “take the lead” on any action if that proves to be the case. Clinton made the comments about the doomed plane in a wide-ranging interview with TV host Charlie Rose set to air Thursday night. Portions of the taped interview were released ahead of airtime. “The questions I’d be asking is, No. 1, ‘Who could have shot it down? Who had the equipment?’” she said. “It’s obviously an antiaircraft missile.” The former secretary of state, who’s pondering a

Why ´No Drama Obama´

Obama has a lot of yucky vegetables on his big boy plate, these days. But being president, he doesn´t have to eat them. He can skip all the gross stuff and go right for the ice cream. During the Green Revolution in Iran five years ago, "No Drama Obama"did just that. The Islamic Republic was at a tipping point in the summer of 2009. With just a little encouragement from the US, regime change was possible. That would have been great for the Iranian people and made the world a safer place. But while the world looked to America for

Four-star Gen. James Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, used a speaking engagement at the Brookings Institute on Tuesday to deliver a stinging rebuke of the Obama administration’s handling of Iraq. “I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don’t think we’d be in the same shape we’re in today,” Gen. Amos said, the Fiscal Times reported Wednesday. It is rare for an active-duty serviceman to give such blunt public criticism of a sitting president. While

Arizona Sen. John McCain said Thursday that he believes Republicans can defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, but only if they pass immigration reform. “She’s the odds-on favorite right now,” McCain said of Clinton at the “Politics on Tap” event hosted by CNN and National Journal. “But I think we have a long list of people who could defeat Hillary Clinton.” McCain suggested New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich by name as potential Clinton vanquishers. “We’ve got some very successful governors that have done very well in their states

Hours after Microsoft announced that it would be slashing 18,000 jobs on Thursday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (A-AL) issued a challenge to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and other Democrats who voted for the Senate´s comprehensive immigration bill: Prove that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers. Speaking on the Senate floor, Sessions mentioned that just a week before Microsoft´s announcement, Microsoft´s former CEO Bill Gates joined with two other "masters of the universe" to urge Congress to remove limits on the number of guest-worker visas that can be awarded.

Nothing more could be asked from an opening day at The Open Championship than the two biggest names setting out their stall alongside the world number one before a raucous audience of lucky sunbathers at Royal Liverpool. Rory McIlroy’s sumptuous 66 to set the pace was nothing less than expected, of course, since he’s become Thursday’s child. This was the fifth time in 14 starts this season he has led following the opening day. Neither would anyone be too surprised that Adam Scott made light of the fact he was playing in the more difficult afternoon conditions to demonstrate why

Add another Senate race to the tossup list: Colorado. A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Sen. Mark Udall, a Democrat, trailing Rep. Cory Gardner, a Republican, by 2 percentage points, 44-42 percent. By a 49-40 margin, voters say Udall does not deserve to be re-elected. Colorado has come into play only recently. President Barack Obama carried the state in 2012 by 5 percentage points, but the new survey showed state voters today disapprove of of the job he’s doing by a 58-39 percent margin. And voters give Gardner better marks on the economy, saying by a 46-35 percent margin the

Hats off, Chick-fil-A! You’ve overtaken KFC, and you’re aiming to sell healthier fare. But pssst! Don’t you know ‘skinny’=‘gay’? Chick-fil-A is like gay sex: Don’t knock it till you try it. Not that I’ve actually tried Chick-fil-A, but I’m open-minded enough to not flat-out hate it, especially now that the American people have voted with their mouths and helped Chick-fil-A overtake Kentucky Fried Chicken to become “America’s largest chicken chain.” Wow. Congratulations. Did you know that “chicken” is also the nickname for a young man seeking the sexual attention of an older man? But I digress… In 2012, when Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy publicly

The reported downing of a Malaysian airliner over eastern Ukraine that resulted in the deaths of 295 passengers was an “act of terror” and an “act of war,” according to the top Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs and Senate Armed Services Committee. “The shooting down, if it’s true, of a passenger airliner is an act of terror,” New York Rep. Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told The Daily Beast. “It’s no different from the acts of terror Iran has been perpetrating for many years… The world community should get together and decide on

Bloodied but unbowed after a largely unsuccessful primary season, the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) isn’t backing down in the final months of the midterms. The group on Thursday launched radio and television ads in Kansas highlighting questions over where Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) lives, making a final play in the group´s last remaining incumbent primary. It endorsed Roberts´s challenger, radiologist Milton Wolf, but he has thus far failed to pick up much traction against the senator. Both spots hit Roberts on the national debt and ObamaCare, and they feature a clip of Roberts commenting in a recent interview that, "Every time I

(Video) President Barack Obama used his Wednesday video message to the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees convention to call GOP attacks “absurd.” “That’s why it’s so absurd that Republicans in Washington are trying to blame unions for economic challenges facing working Americans,” Obama said in a pretaped video message, after praising unions. “Unions aren’t the ones blocking workers from getting a raise. Unions aren’t the ones blocking fair pay. Unions aren’t the ones blocking common sense jobs to grow the economy for everyone. And unions sure aren’t the ones cheering this week’s Supreme Court ruling that made

Pro-Russian separatists claimed to have found the ´black box´ - which records vital flight information - of the downed passenger airliner MH17. According to Russian news agency Interfax, First Deputy Prime Minister Andriy Purgin of the breakaway Donestsk Republic said the box will be transferred to Moscow for examination. ´Of course, we most likely will give them to the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC), to Moscow. They are highly qualified experts who will be able to accurately determine the cause of the disaster, even though it is so clear,´ he said.

A Malaysian Airlines passenger plane has been shot down on the Russian-Ukraine border in an ´act of terrorism´, killing all 295 people on board including around 100 children. The Boeing 777 aircraft exploded into flames at 33,000ft as it was hit by a sophisticated surface-to-air missile over territory near Donetsk held by pro-Russian rebels who the Ukrainian government says are backed by the Kremlin. Dutch authorities have said that at least six Britons, 154 Dutch and 27 Australians were on board the doomed plane, and it is feared that up to 23 Americans and four French passengers had been killed.

SEATTLE- Marijuana stores in Washington state can sell marijuana in cookies, brownies and other approved baked goods but cannot put the drug in candies, lollipops or food items that might appeal to children, according to newly released rules. Washington became the second U.S. state to allow recreational sales of marijuana to adults on July 8 when its first retail stores opened under a heavily regulated and taxed system approved by voters in 2012. The state´s Liquor Control Board, which regulates the fledgling sector, published the guidelines on Wednesday for the packaging and labeling of marijuana edibles. It prohibited any products,

Laughing rebels filmed the plane as it crashed, gleefully bragging ‘That was a blast – look at the smoke!’ while a fireball rose from the debris. One of the voices is believed to be militia commander Igor Strelkov, who then penned a triumphant war cry on Twitter, saying: ‘We warned you – do not fly in “our sky”.’ A sickening mobile phone video posted online shows a pall of black smoke billowing over the crash site as three rebels provide an excited commentary. The extraordinary footage – apparently filmed by the shooters themselves – charts the terrible final moments of the doomed airliner. Their

A Wendy Davis staffer once pleaded guilty to posing as former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele online in order to illegally obtain his credit report. Lauren Weiner, who was a researcher for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in 2005, pleaded guilty in 2006 to obtaining Steele´s credit report by fraud. At the time, Steele was lieutenant governor of Maryland, and was making an unsuccessful run for U.S. Senate from that state. Under a plea agreement reported on at the time by the Washington Post, Weiner could have the charge dropped after a year if she completed 150 hours of

The airspace Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was flying in when it was shot down was not restricted, but airlines had been warned about the potential dangers, it has emerged. The International Transport Association said that an initial assessment revealed that the airspace the aircraft was travelling through was ´not subject to restrictions´.

Nine Britons and 27 Australians, according to Dutch authorities, and fears of up to 23 Americans are among the 295 that have lost their lives.
