´It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy’:
Obama sparks anger with 40-second
mention of Malaysian plane crash that
killed 23 Americans before giving
transportation speech

Daily Mail (U.K.), by David Martosko*

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/17/2014 5:11:25 PM

Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America´s transportation infrastructure. Twenty-three Americans are feared dead after the jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine. Obama declared that ´it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy, but not before enthusiastically declaring that ´it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.´ ´Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border. And it looks

With out a script he has no idea what to say, he can only fake empathy. He´s probably worried that this is going to mess up his vacation to the Vineyard. He might not get in as many rounds of golf as he would like.

The Islamist Candidate could care less about the deaths of Americans - much less other poor souls.
He is a robot programmed by Val Jarrett, terrorist Bill Ayres et al. to be wound up and sent out to mouth inanities posted in his TelePrompTer.
He should be removed from office as a Fraud.

We don´t know who shot down this plane and speculation is the act of fools.

Was the wrong plane shot down? Interesting!

"Malaysian Airlines MH17 plane was travelling almost the same route as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s jet shortly before the crash that killed 295, Interfax news agency reports citing sources.“I can say that Putin’s plane and the Malaysian Boeing intersected at the same point and the same echelon"

Mark Levin just said "there is something terribly wrong with Obama." I couldn´t agree more. I truly believe he is a psychopath. No one who is normal would continue to behave in this manner with such terrible events occurring all over the world. He is completely indifferent to anything that doesn´t concern him. It´s absolutely shocking and disgraceful.

The link below is to an article from Psychology Today describing a psychopath. It will chill you to the bone. We are in deep, deep trouble. Are enemies must be overjoyed.

#11 what I have been reading is that the "separatists" captured the missiles from the Ukrainians when they overran the AA position a coupla week ago, which had been put in place because a fighter had shot down one of their airplanes. The "separatists" had it and got it working, decided to see if they could shoot down something, which they might have thought was a Ukrainian aircraft.

This explains a lot: Psychopath - A mentally ill or unstable person, especially a person affected with antisocial personality disorder. Psychopaths tend to lack normal human emotions. They are also often highly intelligent and skilled at manipulating others. Psychopaths may exhibit the following traits: Superficial charm and average intelligence. Delusions and irrational thinking. Unreliability. Untruthfulness and insincerity. Lack of remorse or shame. Antisocial behavior. Poor judgment and failure to learn from experience. Loss of insight. Unresponsiveness in interpersonal relationships. Sex life is impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated.

Today , as he reacts to every national and world crisis,
Barry recited a couple of seconds worth of bloodless
bumblin stumblin
and then began laughing and gave a shout out to Dr Joe Medicine Crow Biden.
Whether he´s drunk, doped up or disconnected ,
Barry´s behavior is beyond odd ,
it´s totally unbecoming a POTUS
and Commander in Chief.
How long can the national media ignore this strange and inappropriate conduct ?
At some point, even they have to admit that Barry is bizarre.

criminalizing hate speech

Note: Hate speech, not hate crimes. YouGov asked people about hate crimes for its poll too and found bipartisan support for the federal law that provides steeper penalties for crimes motivated by hatred of the victim’s race, religion, gender, or national origin. Sixty-four percent of Dems gave thumbs-up to that versus 54 percent of Republicans. A plurality of Republicans also support expanding that law to target hate crimes committed against gays: 44 percent say yes versus 30 percent who say no. Hate-crimes laws matter in the sentencing phase. If you’re guilty of the underlying offense, then you can be punished more

Scandal: A court tells the White House to ac knowledge the existence of a probe into whether one of its advisers used private tax records for political gain. Transparency is being forced on an administration that´s anything but. In 2010, an attorney for industrialists and libertarian political donors Charles and David Koch told the Weekly Standard of a senior Obama aide telling reporters on background that the Kochs "do not pay corporate income tax" through their company, Koch Industries.

On Friday, a Washington D.C. hospital admitted a patient with possible Ebola symptons. If the patient is confirmed to have the virus, it would be the second documented case in the U.S. While we know the public is concerned about the spread of this incredibly dangerous virus, what many may not know is that it has the potential to impact the stock market, and the economy, even if it doesn’t spread. On Thursday, Yahoo Finance spoke with the Chief Economist at RBS, Michelle Girard, about trends in global markets and the economy, and she brought up the risk Ebola is posing to

Mitt Romney just made a savvy next step in his quiet, camouflaged 2016 campaign. Like a growing number of Americans, Romney refused to declare a political party when he filled out a new voter registration reform in Utah. It´s the sort of party-rejecting step that could position a reinvented Romney to become America´s first non-Democrat or Republican president since the 1800s. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the new Utah registration form completed and signed by Romney last August deliberately leaves out any party identification. As the Republican nominee in 2012 and a Republican candidate in 2008, this would seem to

The Democrat/Progressive Party may be signing their own death certificate in the 2014 elections with their mishandling of Ebola. One and half million people are quarantined in Sierra Leone. The first case has hit America. And all Obama has done is make a speech saying everything is fine here, but he’s sending American troops into harm’s way there. A ghastly virus that kills 50-100% of its victims and has no known treatment is something people notice. It is something women notice. Ebola is creating an epidemic of fear, for good reason.

Scientists to ‘fast-track’ evidence
linking global warming to wild weather
Independent (U.K.), by Tom Bawden    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/4/2014 3:06:58 AM     Post Reply
Scientists are to challenge the climate-change sceptics by vastly improving the speed with which they can prove links between a heatwave or other extreme weather event and man-made changes to the atmosphere. It typically takes about a year to determine whether human-induced global warming played a role in a drought, storm, torrential downpour or heatwave – and how big a role it played. This allows climate sceptics to dismiss any given extreme event as part of the “natural weather variation” in the immediate aftermath, while campaigners automatically blame it on global warming. By the time the truth comes out most people have lost

In the latest grim tiding of the public mood, merely 42% think the American dream that "if you work hard, you´ll get ahead" remains true, down from 53% in 2012 and 50% in 2010.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
