Russia warns of civil war if Ukraine
uses force to quell eastern revolts

CNN, by Laura Smith-Spark and Victoria Buten

Kiev -- Russia warned Tuesday that any use of force in Ukraine´s eastern region could lead to civil war, as Kiev seeks to regain control after pro-Moscow uprisings in three cities. Pro-Russian protesters seized government buildings in the three cities of Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv on Sunday. Rebels occupying Donetsk´s regional government building Monday declared a "people´s republic" and called for a referendum on secession from Ukraine to be held by May 11. Russia´s Foreign Ministry said reports that the protesters are facing a crackdown by Ukrainian authorities are of particular concern. "We are calling for the immediate cessation of

Note to Putin;

If "Rebels" have taken control of the Physical manifestations of government (ie occupying government offices and facilities) have demanded "referendums" on forming a "Peoples Republic".

You are already in a civil war.

Another example of a real leader as compared to our "behind" leader. Obama stayed silent when the Iranian people wanted freedom. How much of his crappy diplomacy would this have avoided if he could have used his tremendous skills as a community organizer to assist the Iranian people.

Obama continues to extend the borders of how bad a pathetic President can be.

It is a choice of who they want for a master. The West and the IMF or Russia.

After seeing the results of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt and Syria in terms of military; Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy in terms of economics; and Poland, Czechoslovakia, Israel, again Egypt, and Israel in terms of honoring agreements and being loyal friends. After all of the above, would you want to align yourself with the West and the IMF?

For more than 35 years, the Border Patrol has referred illegal immigrants to Annunciation House in downtown El Paso, Texas, depending on the non-profit to steer them toward the social services they need while they await deportation hearings. (Snip) Garcia, who has dedicated his life to helping the poor, including illegal immigrants, now finds himself angry with the federal government for not anticipating and preparing for the border crisis, which has seen as many as 50,000 unaccompanied children from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador flood across the border. Experts say they are fleeing exploding violence in their homelands, and are

Michelle Obama is a popular first lady. On average, her favorable ratings have been higher than those of her predecessors, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton. This may well reflect the fact that more so than other first ladies, Mrs. Obama has a stand-alone personal image. Unlike other recent first ladies, her popularity has not fallen or risen with her husband’s. How popular is Michelle? A steady two-thirds of the public has held a favorable view of Mrs. Obama, according to nationwide Gallup poll and Pew Research Center surveys, for most of her time as first lady. At 69 percent, her average

Lawsuits seek to stop work at coal mines

BILLINGS, Mont. – Coal industry representatives say lawsuits against mines in three Western states could have consequences across the U.S. as environmentalists seek changes in how mining is approved on federally owned reserves. In civil cases unfolding in Colorado, New Mexico and Montana, the group WildEarth Guardians asserts coal companies benefited from lax oversight by federal regulators. The group says the U.S. Department of Interior approved mining plans without enough public involvement, and gave little heed to the pollution caused by digging, shipping and burning coal. The group asked the courts to stop mining until the plans are re-done. The

A Fourth of July parade float that depicted a figure standing outside an outhouse labeled the “Obama Presidential Library” has created a stir on social media and is also receiving criticism in Norfolk, Nebraska. (Snip) Neither the float nor the pickup identified a sponsor; a sign in the windshield said it was entry No. 29. Liz Guthrie of Pierce, Nebraska, took a photo of the float that has been widely circulated on social media and shared about 1,000 times on Facebook. From where she watched the parade, Guthrie said she could hear the crowd laughing and clapping as the float

Seattle — Randy Oliver has a pressing question as legal marijuana sales are about to begin in Washington state: Where´s all the weed? Oliver is the chief scientist at Analytical 360 in Yakima, the only lab that has been certified to test the heavily taxed marijuana that will wind up on store shelves next month. So far, just two licensed growers have turned in samples for testing, with another due to turn in a small batch next week, he told The Associated Press on Saturday. "There´s such a small stream of samples coming through," he said. "There's going to be some long lines and some high prices." The state's Liquor Control Board has been

When Do the Right Thing was released a quarter-century ago, few people could have imagined that the $6 million indie about racial tensions in America would one day be hailed as one of the great masterpieces of our time -- by the first black president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the first black president of the United States, no less. But that is precisely what happened on Friday night. In front of an overflowing crowd on the campus of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the film's writer-director-star Spike Lee signed books, attended a reception and then participated in a Q&A about the film -- introduced by

“The View” is secretly one of the most important political series of the 2000s, one that, at its peak, put forceful opposing opinions about the biggest issues of the day in front of viewers. The famous Rosie O’Donnell-Elisabeth Hasselbeck fight that prompted O’Donnell’s departure was about civilian casualties in the Iraq War — and the fact that neither O’Donnell nor Hasselbeck argued her case particularly clearly was part of the personality of the show. The show’s hosts discussed hot-button issues, and interviewed politicians, in a strikingly colloquial manner, one that seemed to update the genteel chumminess of executive producer Barbara

The economy contracted dramatically in the first quarter of 2014, according to re-revised data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The federal department´s initial assessment of Q1 2014 was that the nation´s economic activity had expanded slightly. After getting more data, it revised that estimate to a 1 percent contraction. The third estimate, however, is much more severe: the economy contracted 2.9 percent. But this probably won´t cause President Obama to lose too much sleep. Wonkblog´s Yian Mui walked through the qualifiers on the number: "It was really cold during the winter. Hiring picked up dramatically as spring grew closer.

NEW YORK - At Blue Hill, his intimate, understated restaurant in Greenwich Village famous for its locally sourced ingredients — not to mention having hosted Barack and Michelle Obama on a much-publicized date night — chef and co-owner Dan Barber is featuring a Rotation Salad this week. (Snip) What we need instead, Barber says, is a cuisine based on what the land can provide — nothing more, nothing less. He argues for a nose-to-tail approach, not to one animal, but the entire farm.

Economy shrank 2.9% in

The U.S. economy turned in its worst quarter in five years during the first three months of 2014, shrinking more sharply than previously estimated. The nation´s gross domestic product in the first quarter fell at a 2.9% annual rate vs. the 1% contraction previously believed, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expected a 1.8% drop in output. The decline was the sharpest since growth tumbled 5.4% in the first quarter of 2009 during the Great Recession. The last time the economy shrank was in the first quarter of 2011, slipping 1.3%. The more dramatic drop was largely

President Obama receives his worst marks yet for handling the situation in Iraq, with 52 percent disapproving and strong negative sentiment now outpacing strong approval by 2 to 1 (34 to 17 percent) in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Asked whether the U.S. should launch air strikes against Sunni insurgents, 45 percent support and 46 percent oppose that idea. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans support air strikes, compared with 44 percent among Democrats and 41 percent of independents. The gap between men and women is just as large and extends across party lines. Men support air strikes by a 54

Baghdad Bomb Blitz Feared

With ISIS forces nearing Baghdad´s city limits, U.S. officials don´t believe the relatively small, ill-equipped army of Islamic militants will be able to take the city by a frontal assault. Instead, they fear that ISIS will terrorize Baghdad by launching a wave of suicide bombings and possibly cutting off water and electricity to the city of 7.5 million. The strategy, according to the officials, appears aimed at demoralizing residents of the city and inciting a new wave of sectarian violence that could further undermine the ruling Shia-led Iraqi government.

Murrieta, California is ground zero in America’s war against illegal aliens who are swarming our border. The Obama regime is not stopping the illegals. They are in fact doing everything they can to facilitate the entry of illegals into this nation. In California, and a lot of other places, real Americans have had enough. (Snip) According to media reports, the Obama regime is going to deploy riot squads to make sure those buses get through. The Regime cannot close off the border but it is going to use riot police to attack real Americans! This is simply beyond belief. Illegal aliens are just that, illegal.

A Fourth of July parade float in Nebraska that showed a dummy standing outside an outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" is drawing cries of racism from local residents and the Nebraska Democratic Party.

The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.

At Arizona State University, female students can earn extra credit by agreeing to not shave their armpits and legs for ten weeks. Breanne Fahs, a professor of women and gender studies, has made the special offer to her students as a way to encourage them to challenge social norms. “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,” she told ASU News. “There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal. But it is, as the students tend to find out quickly.” Female students looking to earn

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the

NORFOLK, Neb. — A float comparing President Barack Obama´s future presidential library to an outhouse has drawn criticism from some after it appeared in the Fourth of July parade in Norfolk. It featured a wooden outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" and a figure in overalls standing outside the structure.

Polar bears and Emperor penguins aren´t the only species under threat due to climate change. Gingers could become extinct as a result of increasingly sunny skies, experts have warned. Scientists believe the gene that causes red hair is an evolutionary response to cloudy skies and allows inhabitants to get as much Vitamin D as possible. But if predictions of rising temperatures and blazing sunshine across the British Isles turn out to be correct, flaming red heads could cease to exist within centuries. While only 1% to 2% of the world’s population are ginger, in the north of the UK, where the weather tends to
