Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 3/21/2014 3:56:13 PM

The Telegraph has obtained the full communication record of MH370, including the crucial moments in the lead-up to the disappearance of the Boeing 777 and its 239 passengers. It reveals the messages relayed between the cockpit and air traffic controllers during the period when the plane is believed by investigators to have already been sabotaged. As the search continues for possible wreckage of the aircraft in the southern Indian Ocean, the transcript marks a further piece of evidence in the baffling mystery of flight MH370. It shows that – according to numerous experts – the two-way banter between Fariq Abdul

Media are definitely grasping for anything to report. This story was 99.99% useless as ´news´.

The Scene: The Telegraph editor´s office.

Editor: Pearlman! Get it here! We´ve got new dope on the Malaysia Air story.

Pearlman: I´m your man, Chief! What´s new?

Ed.: We´ve got the record on all the communications leading up to the disaster. Here, give them a read.

Pearlman: (after reading): Chief, I don´t know... everything and everyone I´ve talked to says there´s nothing unusual about the communications.

Ed.: Pearlman! Do your job! Write SOMETHING! Anything!

And so it goes...

(Video) Wednesday on NewsMax TV´s "The Steve Malzberg Show," former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson said, "It´s was hard not to laugh" after President Barack Obama´s comments on the VA Hospital scandal early today.

Who Breaks A Butterfly Upon A Wheel?

Dinesh D’Souza faces more than a year in prison for giving away his money. Guilt lies with the law and not the lawbreaker here. The conservative author pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws, which is another way of saying he opened up a lemonade stand without a license or ripped the tag off a mattress. The case stems from D’Souza’s 2012 donations through intermediaries to a friend’s senatorial campaign. Congress, made up of incumbents, has placed restrictions of dubious constitutionality on the amount individuals can legally donate to candidates. They haven’t, tellingly, placed any such limits on what they can

Scarborough: I’ve Never Heard Anyone Oppose
Obamacare Because of President’s Race

During Friday’s cup of Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough took issue with Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller‘s claim that some opposition to the Affordable Care Act is driven by hatred of President Obama‘s race. Rockefeller made such an accusation Thursday during a tense exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) over the health care legislation. The Democratic legislator said that many people oppose the law “because they don’t like the president, maybe he’s the wrong color.” Johnson immediately jumped in to blast his colleague for playing the “race card.” Scarborough agreed, telling his fellow panelists: I have been behind closed doors with thousands of conservatives

In an interview broadcast live on CNBC on Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin mocked President Barack Obama for criticizing Russia’s role in the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Putin drew laughs from the audience when he dismissed Obama’s criticism, saying that Obama should “get a job on court somewhere” if he intends to judge Russia. Putin was asked to respond to Obama’s accusation that Putin had been telling “untruths” when he denies Russia’s involvement in instigating the bloody crisis in Ukraine. “Who is he to judge?” Putin asked. “He wants to judge people, why doesn’t he get a job on a court

Legendary actress Mary Tyler Moore has been left nearly blind from her years-long battle against diabetes, according to friends of the iconic TV star. The 77-year-old Moore was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 33, and she’s been largely out of public view for the past two years fighting the disease. “Her eyesight is what the big problem is right now,” long-time pal and “Mary Tyler Moore Show” co-star Betty White told Closer Weekly magazine. “[Moore is now] almost beyond the point [of being able to see].” Despite the illness that’s kept her at home for most of the past two years, she’s

   

 

  


 
Prince Rupert zu Loewenstein, Rolling

Prince Rupert zu Loewenstein, a Bavarian aristocrat and money manager who guided the Rolling Stones to riches and through financial crises — helping to elevate them to an economic behemoth — without ever acquiring a taste for rock music, died on Tuesday in London. He was 80. His friend Hugo Vickers confirmed the death, The Associated Press reported. Prince Loewenstein had Parkinson’s disease. Prince Loewenstein masterminded the Stones’ release from a contract that had left them playing concerts and making records for almost nothing. He successfully urged them to leave England, initially for the south of France, to escape high taxes. He

White House Sued Over
Possible Hatch Act Violations

A watchdog group is suing the Obama administration for records on an investigation into possible Hatch Act violations by former White House staff members Rahm Emanuel and Jim Messina. Judicial Watch announced Thursday it has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) for records on its investigation into former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina, whom the watchdog group alleges used their positions as high-level administration officials in 2009 to affect federal elections. The Hatch Act states that an employee may not “use his official authority or

“My position was straightforward,” Glenn Greenwald writes. “By ordering illegal eavesdropping, the president had committed crimes and should be held accountable for them.” You break the law, you pay the price: It’s that simple. But it’s not that simple, as Greenwald must know. There are laws against government eavesdropping on American citizens, and there are laws against leaking official government documents. You can’t just choose the laws you like and ignore the ones you don’t like. Or perhaps you can, but you can’t then claim that it’s all very straightforward.

As we at NewsBusters have documented, the liberal media have shown no lack of interest in the candidacy of American Idol runner-up turned Democratic politician Clay Aiken. So it should be interesting to see the coverage, or lack thereof, for Mr. Aiken having tweeted a while back, "Anyone else watching @piersmorgan want to punch Ann Coulter in the face?" What´s more, reports blogger Sooper Mexican, Aiken once all but urged fans to call Coulter a c**t. War on women, anyone?

National Journal’s Ron Fournier had sharp criticism for President Obama over his handling of the Virginia Veterans scandal. Fournier called the Obama Administration’s view on scandal “pathetic” and said Obama knew the scandal “was a systemic problem” when he came into office. “He is winding down the wars and he knew this had to be a radical overhaul and what did he do, like he’s done with a lot of other things?” he asked. “He didn’t pay attention, he didn’t govern. Now he’s holding nobody accountable,” he continued. Fournier’s opinion was shared by Rep. David Scott (D., Ga.) who unleashed his furor at

Master of disaster:
Sulzberger killing the Times
New York Post, by Charles Gasparino    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 5/22/2014 8:09:59 AM     Post Reply
The messy firing of Jill Abramson as executive editor at The New York Times is one more example of how the Times’ publisher, Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger, fails the basics of Man­agement 101, and should be the one getting the ax. Anyone in the business world who’s met Pinch will tell you: He’s not just a bad businessman; he’s one of the worst to run a major corporate enterprise, which the Times is, or at least used to be. Plus, he’s the classic case of a guy born on third base who thinks he hit a triple: His great-grandfather bought the Times in

The Obama administration seems to have forgotten the International Day of the Family last week that was celebrated at the UN and around the world May 15. Yet the administration was very enthusiastic about the May 17th celebration of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, issuing proclamations by the Secretary of Defense and a statement by the President. Moreover, at least one ambassador flew the rainbow flag over his embassy. Spanish papers reported that the rainbow flag flew over the U.S. Embassy in Madrid for at least one day last week and that former Home Box Office executive, now openly gay

ASHINGTON — White House officials have been holding private meetings this week aimed at soothing lawmakers’ concerns over the U.S. posture in Syria, the future of the American military presence in Afghanistan and defense spending. The meetings come as a frustrated White House seeks to push back at criticism of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. But the White House outreach appeared to be having little effect on some lawmakers’ concerns. Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, described Tuesday night’s White House meeting with chief of staff Denis McDonough and national security adviser Susan

What a society chooses to memorialize says a lot about what it values, which is worth contemplating this weekend as the nation recognizes the sacrifices of military men and women who died in service to their country. (Snip) Warrior culture pervades American society, from the military flyovers at major public events to the video games we play, to the movies and TV shows we watch. It even informs the vocabulary of our political life, where "war chests" finance "campaigns" by "foot soldiers" in "battleground" states directed by top "lieutenants." Less militarily, there´s the obligatory singing of the national anthem before

They had a dream. For almost a hundred years now, the famed academic-artistic-and-punditry industrial complex has dreamed of a government run by their kind of people (i.e., nature’s noblemen), whose intelligence, wit, and refined sensibilities would bring us a heaven on earth. Their keen intellects would cut through the clutter as mere mortals’ couldn’t. They would lift up the wretched, oppressed by cruel forces. Above all, they would counter the greed of the merchants, the limited views of the business community, and the ignorance of the conformist and dim middle class.

White House officials are warning that First Lady Michelle Obama is launching into a new "sustained level" of political engagement this year, signaling a shift from her less public profile during the beginning of her husband´s first term in the White House. As Barack´s second term has gotten fairly underway, the White House claims that the President will be using his wife in more ways than ever and we should expect to see her acting as a solo political act far more than we have in the past. The Hill notes we have already seen Michelle add her voice to the issue of the kidnapped Nigerian girls with the Twitter campaign #BringBackOurGirls.

President Barack Obama secretly slipped into Afghanistan under the cover of darkness Sunday for a weekend visit with U.S. troops serving in the closing months of America´s longest war. Air Force One landed at Bagram Air Field, the main U.S. base in Afghanistan, after an overnight flight from Washington. Obama was scheduled to spend just a few hours on the base and had no plans to travel to Kabul, the capital, to meet with Hamid Karzai, the mercurial president who has had a tumultuous relationship with the White House. Obama´s surprise trip comes as the U.S. and NATO withdraw most of their

President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to U.S. troops in Afghanistan, promising an end to combat missions in Afghanistan by the close of the year and help easing veterans back into civilian life following their return to the States. Obama pledged a commitment to limited troop presence beyond 2014 in Afghanistan, which is undergoing a presidential transition, to safeguard the gains made against al Qaeda by American troops. He then name-checked the just-opened 9/11 Museum at Ground Zero, describing a flag from that day that had survived the attacks to maintain its patriotic symbolism, much as the troops he

A gunman went on a drive-by shooting rampage in a Santa Barbara student enclave and at least seven people were killed, including the attacker, authorities said. Investigators believe a 22-year-old named Elliot Rodger driving a black BMW acted alone in the shootings late Friday night near the University of California, Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown confirmed at a news conference early Saturday that that seven people were killed, including the gunman, and seven wounded. Rodger is thought to be the son of Peter Rodger, assistant director of the Hollywood film franchise The Hunger Games. Authorities are examining

The CIA’s top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops. The White House recognized the mistake and quickly issued a revised list that did not include the individual, who had been identified on the initial release as the “Chief of Station” in Kabul, a designation used by the CIA for its highest-ranking spy in a country. The disclosure marked a rare instance in which a CIA officer working overseas had his cover
