KIEV, Ukraine -- Emergency workers, police officers and even off-duty coal miners -- dressed in overalls and covered in soot -- searched Friday through wreckage and bodies scattered over a vast stretch of farmland after a Malaysian Airlines jet flying over eastern Ukraine was shot from the sky, killing 298 people. Separatist rebels who control the area where the plane went down said Friday they had recovered "most" of the plane´s black boxes and were considering what to do with them.

"Furthermore, the bodies of the passengers need to be examined to determine how exactly they died."

Really?

No offense to the techies, but sometimes it just doesn´t matter. With what has been verified, is it really necessary to know where the missile hit the aircraft?

I know we want to examine the wreckage to see if we can determine what kind of missile did the deed. However in the end missile to plane and plane to ground is all we will ever really know. I do not need a lot more to know whom to blame.

You Can´t Corral Some Folks´
Taste for Ranch Dressing

Mike De Jesus tries to maintain a healthy diet. But to make his food choices more palatable, he often turns to a certain oyster-colored glop. The 29-year-old online advertising sales manager dips broccoli, carrots and celery sticks into ranch dressing, something he says he eats "pretty much on a daily basis." The zingy, buttermilk-and-herb accompaniment is so addictive that "I would be miserable eating a salad otherwise," says Mr. De Jesus, who works for a large Silicon Valley technology company. Americans´ eating habits have changed dramatically in recent decades, as shoppers dump frozen food for fresh and abandon the canned-food aisles. Yet even

James Cole, deputy attorney general in the Department of Justice, testified Thursday that the DOJ heard about the destruction of IRS officials’ emails in the news, even though DOJ has formally been investigating the IRS for more than a year. “I think we learned about it after that, from press accounts,” Cole told House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan at a hearing Thursday on the DOJ’s response to the wave of computer crashes at the IRS that wiped out seven different employees’ hard drives.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Vance McAllister´s re-election campaign has refunded contributions from the former staffer he was caught kissing on a leaked surveillance tape and the woman´s husband. His latest campaign filing with the Federal Election Commission shows two refunds of $2,600 each to Melissa Peacock, the former staffer. Also refunded were two $2,600 contributions from Heath Peacock, the woman´s husband. The donations were made in October, 2013, a month before McAllister, a married businessman, won a run-off election to replace Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman in the 5th Congressional District. McAllister, a Republican from Swartz, apologized after the video release. It was apparently recorded

   

 

  


 
What Would Cause President
Obama to Cancel a Fundraiser?
PJ Media, by Myra Adams    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/18/2014 4:29:07 AM     Post Reply
What “tragedy” would be horrific enough for President Obama to cancel his usual schedule of speeches, lunches and fundraisers? A commercial airliner shot down over Ukraine with Americans aboard? No. How about a terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11, killing our ambassador and three others? No. Perhaps news that Israel has begun a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip? No way. Obviously our president believes that any change to his schedule is a sign of weakness (and God forbid our commander in chief appear weak). So today, despite the breaking news of possible Russian involvement with the missile

It´s going to be hot tubs, basketball, tennis and golf for the first family this summer, having set plans for a 16-day vacation in Martha´s Vineyard, Mass., on a $12 million, 10-acre forested estate on the southwestern corner of the island.

STOCKTON, Calif. -- Robbers fleeing a California bank took three women hostage and threw two of them from their getaway vehicle, as they fired repeatedly at police during a high-speed chase. Police shot out their tires but the shooting continued, fatally wounding two suspects and the last hostage. The violence in this central California city erupted Wednesday afternoon when officers responded to a report of a robbery at a Bank of the West branch and spotted three men taking three female hostages from the bank at gunpoint, Stockton police officer Joe Silva said. The suspects with their hostages in tow fled in

I was told the OBGYN practice where the wives of two prominent Democrats are partners reserves its morning appointments for “important people.” It was an intriguing claim, especially given the fact that Foxhall OB/GYN Associates does not accept Medicaid even as the office is being used as a prop in a Democrat’s congressional campaign. I decided to investigate. Could I get a morning appointment? Was I one of the “important people”? (Snip)John Foust has made his wife the face of his campaign for Virginia’s 10th District.

Iran! Oil prices! Rick Perry! Even if you think you know who’ll control Congress next year, the road to the November midterms will be full of big surprises. From a deal with Iran to an uptick in the employment rolls, a lot can happen to shift the political conversation between now and November. Immigration reform, for example, was supposed to help Democrats in the midterm elections. Clashes on the border between angry Texans and buses carrying immigrant children fleeing gang violence and sex trafficking highlighted the GOP’s opposition, and Democrats thought maybe this was the game changer they needed. But the consensus among

Visit compounds Kennedys’ woes

A call about trouble involving a crazy person at the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport — what could be more routine than that for a 911 dispatcher at the Barnstable Police Department? But there was one big difference Tuesday night. This time it was a member of the Kennedy family as the victim, rather than the perp. So now it’s officially summer on the Cape. The Kennedys are back in the headlines. This time, though, the guy in the dock wasn’t wearing a lampshade on his head, the favorite attire of Kennedys this time of year. This time the defendant was wearing a Captain

Call in Atticus Finch. Only the scrupulously fair lawyer at the center of Harper Lee´s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," could get at the truth in the latest conflict over the reclusive author´s privacy. The clash erupted again with Tuesday´s release of "The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee," by former Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills. To gather material for her intimate portrait, Mills rented a house in Monroeville, Ala., next door to the 88-year-old author and her older sister, Alice, and gradually got to know them. In the book, Mills claims she had "the trust, support, and encouragement"

A Flashing Green Light

The tens of thousands of Central Americans who have crossed America’s porous borders over the last year came on the assumption that once on U.S. soil they would never have to return to their countries. The instigators of this influx correctly viewed Obama’s de facto support for amnesty as a flashing green light. After all, how seriously were they going to take U.S. immigration law under a president who treated border security as a punch line to a joke? In 2011, Obama loudly mocked conservatives, the very ones who foresaw today’s mushrooming crisis, as malcontents crying wolf about a vulnerable border. “You

Four-star Gen.

Amos said, the Fiscal Times reported Wednesday. It is rare for an active-duty serviceman to give such blunt public criticism of a sitting president. While

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

Along with citing a list of moderate GOP governors with last names like Bush and Christie as potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates, "Arizona Sen. John McCain said Thursday that he believes Republicans can defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, but only if they pass immigration reform." Calling Hillary Clinton the "odds-on favorite right now“ to win the White House in 2016, McCain added, "I expect it to be very competitive, except if we don’t enact some kind of comprehensive immigration reform, I do not see a way for us to really win a general election.”

Rep. Tom Rice (R., S.C.) and constitutional law expert David Rivkin on Wednesday predicted victory in the lawsuit the House is launching against President Barack Obama. The House Rules Committee held a hearing on the proposed lawsuit, which is intended to prove the unconstitutionality of Obama’s unilateral delay of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act. Witnesses at the hearing argued about whether the House has standing to sue the president to enforce the law. “I’m very optimistic that this lawsuit will succeed,” Rivkin said in an interview. “I certainly expect there to be a propaganda offensive to

According to documents obtained by the Washington Post, on top of that mammoth speaking fee, Clinton´s contract demands……the university provide "a presidential glass panel teleprompter and a qualified operator," that Clinton´s office have "final approval" of her introducer and the moderator of any question-and-answer session, as well as "the sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, settings, etc," and that the

The ongoing investigation of former CIA director David Petraeus is “perplexing and suspicious,” according to a leading Republican on the House Government Oversight Committee. After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Holder in a new letter this week, "I find the timeline...to be increasingly perplexing and suspicious. I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner." Chaffetz also told Gretchen Carlson on Fox News’ “The Real Story” Wednesday that the open investigation may have a chilling

Among those who have donated directly to Davis: singer Barbara Streisand ($1,000) and musician James Taylor ($15,000). A number of other celebs have given money to the Texas Victory Committee, a joint effort of the Davis campaign and the group Battleground Texas.

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.

Political pundits are divided about the merits of House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama´s employer mandate. But should the chief executive be worried that two constitutional law experts — one a conservative, the other a liberal who voted for Obama — not only think the suit has merit but will likely succeed? The two backing Boehner and two constitutional law experts who oppose the suit testified Wednesday before the House Rules Committee.
