Posted By:earlybird, 5/24/2014 1:59:20 PM

The day before a shooting rampage in Isla Vista, the man witnesses identified as the gunman posted a video to YouTube promising "retribution" for being ignored by women and promising to take revenge by killing women in a UC Santa Barbara sorority house. Sheriff´s department personnel are investigating the video in which a man who identifies himself as Elliot Rodger, a Santa Barbara City College student, details plans for "retribution" and "revenge against humanity" prior to the shooting. In the nearly seven minute video, the man seated in the driver´s seat of a car details how his college years have

Comments:
So far name has not been officially released pending notification of next of kin, according to another report. The Santa Barbara Independent´s news editor matched the license plate on a photo he took of the shooter´s car with the one in a photo on Elliott Rodger´s Facebook page.

Some witness reports with article.

SAN CRISTOBAL, Dominican Republic — They suffer searing headaches, a burning fever and so much pain in their joints they can barely walk or use their hands. It’s like having a terrible flu combined with an abrupt case of arthritis. Hospitals and clinics throughout the Caribbean are seeing thousands of people with the same symptoms, victims of a virus with a long and unfamiliar name that has been spread rapidly by mosquitoes across the islands after the first locally transmitted case was confirmed in December. (Snip) The two species of mosquitoes that spread chikungunya are found in the southern and eastern United States

Three people have been shot dead at the Jewish Museum in the Belgian capital Brussels, officials say. A fourth person was seriously wounded, emergency services said. Belgian broadcaster RTBF said the shooting had taken place inside as well as outside the museum. Deputy Prime Minister Didier Reynders, who was one of the first people to arrive at the scene, said he was shocked by the attack. The gunman arrived at the museum at around 15:50 (13:50 GMT) carrying a backpack, then opened fire before fleeing in a car, Belgian media reported.

U.S. Rep. John Conyers’ on-again, off-again roller coaster ride for the Aug. 5 ballot took a new twist Friday when U.S. District Judge Matthew Leitman put the 85-year-old congressman back on the ballot. Leitman’s decision, released late Friday, contradicts the Secretary of State’s review of Conyers’ petitions, which found earlier in the day that Conyers had less than half the required signatures of valid registered voters on the petitions he turned in to qualify for the Aug. 5 primary ballot.But Leitman said the requirement that petition ciruclators be registered voters — the issue that got Conyers booted off the ballot in

Attack, Darrell Issa Says

A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the “ramifications” of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The memo suggests that even as the attack was still underway — and before the CIA began the process of compiling talking points on its analysis of what happened — the White House believed it was in retaliation for a controversial video.The subject line of the e-mail, which

Los Angeles County supervisors voted to end a contract with an agency that auditors say overbilled the county by almost $1 million in handling job-training programs for jail inmates and the unemployed.LA Works, an Irwindale-based joint-powers agency that provides workforce development services, was given a sole source contract in 2011 to teach job training and life skills classes in the jails. A recent county audit found that it had overbilled the Sheriff´s Department by about $133,000 for staff time spent on non-sheriff´s programs and for vacation, sick and holiday leave costs that were earned before the contract started.

This is your dream, America. Or this is your nightmare. Whatever the case, buckle up. Because Michael Sam just got here. His first few days with St. Louis Rams have been fascinating and thought-provoking and criticism-generating, and the odds are it´s going to keep happening. Because in Michael Sam, the NFL doesn´t just have its first openly gay player. Its first openly gay player is openly gay. Not trying to play word games here, but Michael Sam hasn´t played an NFL game or attended an NFL practice -- hell, he was drafted just three days ago -- and already he has shown

Once, Social Security was the "third rail" of politics. Touch it and face political death. Now it is homosexuality. Criticize anything gay people do and you risk ostracism, fines, suspension or loss of your livelihood. Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by a National Football League team -- the St. Louis Rams picked him 249th in the last round -- is being treated by the media and those in the gay rights movement as the equivalent of an early American pioneer.Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones, apparently, didn´t get the memo. Jones tweeted "OMG" and "horrible" after he

PARIS: Nigeria and its neighbours on Saturday vowed to work together to combat Boko Haram in what Cameroon´s president Paul Biya described as a declaration of war on the Islamic rebels. Meeting in Paris, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan and his counterparts from Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger approved an action plan designed to counter an organization blamed for 2,000 deaths this year alone and which has caused global outrage with its abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls. Just hours ahead of the summit, the Islamists carried out another brazen attack , this time killing one Chinese worker and kidnapping 10 others

If the late mob boss William “Willie the Rat” Cammisano was like other Mafiosi—and by all accounts he most emphatically was—he would have been apoplectic had he been told his grandson was dating an African American.But a Mafioso such as Willie the Rat would have taken that as the good news by comparison when he heard the rest. For his grandson’s African-American lover also happens to be a man, as the whole world came to learn when Vito Cammisano kissed football draft pick Michael Sam in front of the ESPN cameras.

President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate. At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population. “Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming.

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was fueled by a potent cocktail of prescription drugs and vodka when he was arrested at a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bar on Wednesday. Admitting to police that he had started drinking at 9am that morning, the troubled 59-year-old journalist was taken into custody at 12.39pm at the Northern Lights Grill in the airport´s main terminal. Once in jail, Jarrett, who was carrying papers indicating that he had just been released from rehab, launched into a furious and confrontational tirade at police, repeatedly screaming, ´f*** you´, before officers physically subdued him. He remained in Hennepin County Jail until around

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

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

Phil Robertson included remarks in a sermon in his church West Monroe, Louisiana that harken back to the "Duck Dynasty" star´s past anti-gay remarks. Robertson included homosexuals with other groups, including thieves, drunks and adulterers, as hell-bound sinners in a sermon he gave on Easter that was recorded and put up on the church´s website. “Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolators, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” Robertson said, paraphrasing a verse from Corinthians in the

Two frightening incidents of vandalism in El Paso near the Mexican border in Texas have been interpreted as warnings from drug cartels. In both instances, a mannequin wearing a suit and tie was tied to a billboard with a noose and messages were scrawled over the placards. Local station KHOU reports that one of the signs reads ´Plata o Plombo´ which translates to ´silver or lead´, a threat used commonly against police officers effectively warning that if they do not accept the cartel´s bribes then they will be shot. ´This symbol has historically been used by Mexican drug cartels to

Why do some political scandals stick while others fade? The level of media obsession seems to rise and fall as mysteriously as the stock market. On Benghazi, sell. Hold on the IRS audits. On the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal, buy, buy, buy. In the broader scandal market, fraud or criminality helps. Political intrigue is a plus. Sexual content increases attention but may eventually seem pathetically human and excusable. Conservatives are convinced that the liberal media are harder on Republicans. There is a natural human tendency to attribute good motives to people with whom you agree — and corrupt motives

A federal just has put U.S. Rep. John Conyers, the second most senior Democrat in the House of Representatives, back on a Michigan congressional primary ballot, after he was struck off because most of the petition signatures he presented were ruled invalid. Conyers had lost an initial appeal Friday morning when Michigan election officials found problems with more than half of the Democrat´s nominating petitions. [Snip] But just hours later, Detroit federal Judge Matthew Leitman issued an injunction ordering election officials to put Conyers´ name on the ballot while larger constitutional issues are sorted out. Leitman was appointed in July 2013

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years. Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. "He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans," she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. "And so, I know that he is upset about it."

If Mark Cuban was trying to defend Donald Sterling yesterday, he failed. Suggesting that we shouldn’t throw stones at the LA Clippers owner for his racist comments, Cuban said, “I know I’m prejudiced. I know I’m bigoted in a lot of different ways. If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I’ll move to the other side of the street.” Sorry, Mark Cuban, but you are not — at least to judge by that sentiment — a bigot. In fact, you’re in good company. Jesse Jackson once famously acknowledged, “There is nothing more painful

On Wednesday, the House of Representative overwhelming approved the Department of Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act, a bill that would relax the standard bureaucratic red tape that makes it exceedingly difficult to fire government employees, even those implicated in an embarrassing scandal. The vote was not unanimous, however, as 33 Democrats for some reason voted against the legislation. The opposition was comprised of union-backed liberals, as well as lawmakers such as Jim Moran (Va.), Steny Hoyer (Md.), and Chris Van Hollen (Md.), who represent the D.C. suburbs where many senior VA employees reside.
