Obama to sign orders
protecting gay employees
Associated Press, by Nedra Pickler    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/18/2014 4:53:37 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama plans to sign executive orders Monday prohibiting discrimination against gay and transgender workers in the federal government and its contracting agencies, without a new exemption that was requested by some religious organizations. Obama´s action comes on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court´s recent ruling in the Hobby Lobby case that allowed some religiously oriented businesses to opt out of the federal health care law´s requirement that contraception coverage be provided to workers at no extra charge. Senior administration officials said Friday that ruling has no impact on non-discrimination policies in federal hiring and contracting. They spoke

After the Malaysia Airlines passenger plane crashed on July 17 in Ukraine’s Donetsk Oblast with 298 people on board, Kremlin-backed enthusiastically claimed credit, saying they thought they had shot down another Ukrainian military transport plane. “We did warn you - do not fly in our sky,” Kremlin-backed separatist leader Igor Girkin, a Russian intelligence service officer, wrote on his official Vkontakte soon after the tragedy. Though when the gravity of the mistake became obvious, the Russian-backed insurgents backpedaled and claimed innocence. The statements of Girkin posted on his Vkontakte page on July 18 appeared to be a lot more confusing. According to Girkin,

A KREMLIN spy known as “The Demon” is believed to be one of the pro-Russian militants responsible for bringing down Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. Ukrainian authorities identified Igor Bezler in a tapped phone conversation telling his Russian boss “we have just shot down a plane”. In the phone conversation, Bezler told military intelligence co-ordinator Colonel Vasyl Mykolaiovych Geranin that his men had gone to search the smoking wreckage for the pilots. But 40 minutes later, in another intercepted call between two men known as “The Major” and “The Greek”, the pro-Russian militants realised they had shot down a civilian airliner. “In short, it was

Fidel Castro says ´pro-imperialist´
Ukraine downed jet

Fidel Castro accused Ukraine on Friday of shooting down the Malaysia Airlines plane that crashed in rebel-held territory, blaming its "pro-imperialist" government for the disaster that killed 298 people. "Cuba... must express its repudiation of this action by such an anti-Russian, anti-Ukrainian and pro-imperialist government," the 87-year-old father of the Cuban Revolution wrote in the official newspaper Granma. Flight MH17 crashed Thursday in eastern Ukraine, where the pro-Western government is battling pro-Russian separatists, sparking a flurry of accusations over who was responsible for apparently shooting it down. Castro said the plane had been hit while flying "on a route under the control of

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) is calling for commercial airplanes to be equipped with missile defense systems after a Malaysia Airlines flight was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday. Kirk said Friday in an interview with CNN that the missile defense system would prevent a repeat of Thursday´s crash, which killed the 298 passengers aboard the flight. "I would have another suggestion that there is a system called DIRCM, which could potentially defeat heat-seeking missiles looking to shoot down a civilian airliner," Kirk said after calling for "one hell of a wrongful death suit" to be filed against Russia. "It is an active defense

Hernando County sheriff’s investigators concluded Thursday that a “very unusual death investigation” was the result of a suicide. Workers cleaning out a home at 6527 Treehaven Drive in Spring Hill thought they found a mannequin hanging in the garage on Thursday morning and took it with of a pile of debris in the back of a pickup truck to the dump, said Hernando Sheriff Al Nienhuis. Employees at the West Hernando Transfer Station, 2525 Osowaw Blvd, questioned the workers about the body but were told it was a mannequin, Nienhuis said.

On Friday, we learned that among those killed on the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 plane that was shot down over Ukraine was top AIDS researcher Dr. Joep Lange. The doctor was en route to the International AIDS Conference, scheduled to begin this weekend in Melbourne, Australia, along with more than 100 other AIDS researchers and activists on the flight. Also scheduled to attend the conference is President Bill Clinton, who had met Dr. Lange and praised him in an interview with CNN from Hanoi, Vietnam Friday morning. “It’s awful,” he said. “I mean, those people are, they’re really, in a way,

Russia brushes off worldwide criticism
over Malaysia Airlines tragedy

Russia brushed off international criticism on Friday to throw blame for the MH17 plane crash back on Ukraine and the West. Worldwide opprobrium was poured on to the Kremlin for supporting separatist rebels, who stand accused of sending down the Malyasia Airlines jet. But Moscow denied any ties to the attack, claiming it was the victim of a political vendetta. Sergei Lavrov, the foreign minister of Russia, accused Washington of a “criminal decision” to back Petro Poroshenko, Ukraine’s president, in waging war against pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine. “Frankly speaking, I believe that this disaster will sober up those who have very clearly

Obama´s bizarre and frightening

President Obama was in Delaware on Thursday when a Malaysian airliner went down near Ukraine´s border with Russia. The president was scheduled to give a speech on transportation issues, but began his remarks talking about what, at that time, was thought to be a shoot down of a passenger jet. Daily Mail: President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure. There are no confirmed American dead and the

As the world continued to search for answers over the downing of Flight MH17, the internet came alive with conspiracy theories today. The Web has long been a haven for numerologists and conspiracy crackpots peddling their alternative analyses of events that shake the world. And today was no different as web sleuths across the globe rushed online in a bid to hypothesize over what really happened to the doomed Malaysian Airlines passenger plane . . . Was whoever shot down MH17 actually trying to assassinate Vladimir Putin? Russia Today sparked a fever of speculation last night after publishing a report that claimed the doomed

In March I received a call from the White House counsel’s office regarding a speech I had prepared for my boss at the State Department. The speech was about the impact that the disclosure of National Security Agency surveillance practices would have on U.S. Internet freedom policies. The draft stated that “if U.S. citizens disagree with congressional and executive branch determinations about the proper scope of signals intelligence activities, they have the opportunity to change the policy through our democratic process.” But the White House counsel’s office told me that no, that wasn’t true. I was instructed to amend the

Gaza crisis: Obama administration
accuses Israel of not protecting civilians

The Obama administration accused Israel on Thursday of failing to do all it can to prevent civilian casualties in Gaza during cross-border attacks. Noting the deaths a day earlier of four boys who were killed on a Gaza beach by an Israeli strike, the State Department said the high civilian death toll in Gaza has been "heartbreaking." Three more children were killed in Gaza on Thursday. Still, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki also criticized Hamas militants in Gaza who continue to fire rockets and mortars into Israel, prolonging the latest round of violence in the Mideast that has so far killed 235

We know two things for sure about President Obama´s foreign policy. First, the world is a mess. It reminds you of that school teacher who lost control of her class. I remember a case like that in 7th grade and it was not a suitable place for learning. From the Gaza to Iraq, we´ve got problems that no one would have imagined a couple of years ago. The latest international mess is a commercial aircraft shot down and 300 people killed. There were 23 US nationals on that flight and President Obama needs to address the nation from The Oval Office like

Former FBI informant in the Weather Underground, Larry Grathwohl, is one of the stars of Joel Gilbert’s new film, “There’s No Place Like Utopia,” which is premiering in Denver on Friday and then goes nationwide. Friday, July 18, also happens to be “Blog About Larry Day,” to remember his service to the nation and his untimely death last year. His friend Tina Trent says, “we are asking that bloggers, radio folks, podcasters, and others in the media use July 18th to tell the truth about violent leftist radicals like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and their ilk.” She adds, “Their war

First came the loud explosion that made buildings rattle: then it started raining bodies. One of the corpses fell through the rickety roof of Irina Tipunova´s house in this sleepy village, just after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 exploded high over eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists are fighting government forces. "There was a howling noise and everything started to rattle. Then objects started falling out of the sky," the 65-year-old pensioner said in front of her grey-brick home. "And then I heard a roar and she landed in the kitchen, the roof was broken," she said, showing the gaping hole made by the body

It was strange. Joe Scarborough had just completed a comprehensive indictment of failed American foreign policy around the globe. But at the very moment when he should have laid those disasters at the feet of the sitting President of the United States, Scarborough came down with a bad case of . . . cold feet. Scarborough laid out to David Gregory a tour d´horizon of failed American foreign policy from the Middle East, to Iran, to Russia/Ukraine, describing it as "one disaster after another. One strikeout after another." But perhaps fearful of where the ineluctable logic of his comments was taking

Even in the bitterly fought primary battle between Mississippi senator Thad Cochran and his challenger, state senator Chris McDaniel, some of the radio ads that aired against McDaniel were considered especially incendiary. One charged that a McDaniel victory would set back “race relationships between blacks and whites and other ethnic groups.” (SNIP) “Some money from the Republicans,” some from African Americans. “I raised money from a number of sources,” he said.

London-based Russia Today reporter Sara Firth announced her resignation this morning in protest of the politicized coverage of yesterday’s shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Firth said the manner in which Russia Today announced the tragedy was the “straw that broke the camel’s back for me.” Press Gazette has more: Russia Today has been criticised for suggesting the crash is the fault of Ukraine. Most other media outlets have suggested that a more likely explanation is that pro-Russian separatists were responsible for shooting down the passenger jet. So far it is estimated that around 300 people died in the crash.

A Chinese businessman paid $500,000 to have dinner with Bill and Hillary Clinton. But when he asked if his kids could join, the former first couple demanded another half-million, the New York Post reports. One witness said Holzman regaled guests with a tale that “lunch for two with Bill and Hillary went for $500,000 to benefit the Clinton Foundation.” And the winning bid came from “a Chinese business mogul who then asked if he could bring his two children along to the meeting.” But, our spy said, the high bidder was then told by the Clinton camp he could only bring his

The movement to do so is spreading among other states like a hot tropical virus through a detention facility on the Mexican border.

On Why Conservative Women Are Sexier

Right wing women are sexier than left wing women, argues Cosmo Landesman in the latest issue of the Spectator. And it´s not like he´s biased: this is a self-confessed "liberal-lefty-pro-feminist" talking here. Maybe once conservative women deserved their reputation for being "uptight, prudish and repressed", he says, but not any more. These days it´s lefty women who are the problem, constricted as they are by "a sexual correctness that has come in the wake of third-wave feminism." Landesman has been doing some serious, dedicated research into this: I recently had sex with a woman who writes for the Guardian and in the heat

An expert believes that MH17 was downed by a missile fired from rebel-held Torez in eastern Ukraine - and a BUK anti-aircraft launcher has been pictured rumbling into the town just two hours before the crash, leading to speculation that it was this piece of equipment that was used to bring about the tragedy. On Friday a missile launcher with two rockets missing was then filmed by Ukrainian intelligence services being smuggled on the back of a truck to Russia. Anton Gerashchenko, from Ukraine´s interior ministry, said of the missing missiles that ´it´s not hard to guess why´. ´It was

ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla. — The Obama administration is reopening the Eastern Seaboard to offshore oil and gas exploration, announcing final approval Friday of sonic cannons that can pinpoint energy deposits deep beneath the ocean floor. The decision promises to create plenty of jobs and thrills the oil industry, but dismays environmentalists worried about the immediate impact as well as the long-term implications of oil development. The cannons fill waters shared by whales and turtles with sound waves 100 times louder than a jet engine. Saving endangered species was the environmental groups´ best hope of extending a ban against offshore drilling off
