CHICAGO– A doctoral student and decorated former rower at Indiana University was among the 298 people killed when Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday. Karlijn Keijzer, 25, was a doctoral student in the chemistry department at IU, and had received her masters degree from the university, according to a statement from IU President Michael McRobbie. “On behalf of the entire Indiana University community, I want to express my deepest sympathies to Karlijn’s family and friends over her tragic death,” McRobbie said. “Karlijn was an outstanding student and a talented athlete, and her passing is a

Must not have been an American Student? I just read that there were no Americans on board. Might have been duel-Citizens though...

Since she was from Amsterdam and studying in the US, it is most likely she is still a citizen of the Netherlands and traveling on a Netherlands passport.

I do not understand the immediate clamor for the names of those on these downed flights. In our country the next of kin are advised first. Privately. Sometimes it takes time to determine who they are and where they are.

Other countries operate differently. That´s their business.

Sometimes the names of public presons are released by those affiliated with them who know that those persons were to be on a specific flight.

Patience is a virtue.

She was a native of the Netherlands according to the article.

The State Department´s website is full of information about student visas for the curious.

Man Who Broke News of U.S.
Air Strikes in Syria Speaks Out

Twenty-seven minutes before the United States acknowledged that it was striking targets within Syria, a Syrian man named Abdulkader Hariri broke the news with a simple tweet. (Tweet)(Snip)We asked him how he knew the attacks were being carried out by the United States. “[It] was clear for me [they] are not [the] regime’s,” Hariri wrote. “This is the first time Raqqa is hit at night with this intensity and accurately.” Reports that ISIS fighters had left the area and sought refuge in the suburbs proliferated on social media overnight on Monday. “ISIS evacuated some buildings and HQs,” Hariri wrote when

Figures. Obama Admin Censored
Press Reports for Years, Lapdog
Media Meekly Acquiesced
Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/24/2014 9:06:56 AM     Post Reply
It has taken five-and-a-half years to learn that the Obama administration has been censoring White House print pool reports—and that the media has quietly acquiesced until now. The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi reported Tuesday evening that the Obama administration has abused its role as distributor for the print pool reports by exercising prior restraint on the reports. Farhi cites numerous instances where the Obama press office refused to release pool reports until changes demanded by Obama operatives were made. Farhi reports several examples of reporters acquiescing to Obama’s censorship of the media. Farhi reports on the Washington Post caving twice to

D’Souza Speaks Out on Sentencing:

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza spoke out tonight about his five-year probation and eight-month sentence to a community confinement center on Fox News. D’Souza told Megyn Kelly, “My faith in an independent judiciary is affirmed.” D’Souza was indicted in January for campaign finance, and pled guilty in May. D’Souza had suggested on multiple occasions that he was targeted for his criticisms of President Obama, a charge prosecutors strongly denied. D’Souza repeatedly said in his interview tonight that there’s been an “all-out attempt to put me away,” and while he didn’t directly say it was the Obama administration, he did note there’s

Taxpayers had to cough up $1,159,823 in just one month to fly President Obama to New York and Denver to raise money for Democrats and attend an LGBT event, according to documents obtained by a taxpayer watchdog group. Judicial Watch told Secrets that the Air Force just provided expense reports detailing the flight costs of Air Force One to the cities in July. The documents show that president’s July 8-9 fundraising trip to Denver cost the taxpayers $695,894.10. His July 17-18 fundraising trip to New York City cost taxpayers $463,929.40. Travel costs are typically a small portion of presidential trips.

Count Jimmy Fallon as the latest person to poke fun at President Obama. The late night host railed on Obama in the wake of last week’s news that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel quashed plans to name a new $60 million high school after the president. “More bad news for the president: Chicago is reversing its plan to name a high school after President Obama because it received multiple complaints from people in the community,” said Fallon. “I guess parents were afraid their kids would spend eight years at the school and still get nothing done,” skewered the “Tonight Show” host.

WASHINGTON- The Arabs are in. Turkey is on the fence. Britain, still smarting from an earlier Iraq war, is cautiously edging toward expanded action. Even Greece wants to help - if someone would tell it how. Two weeks after he announced plans to form a "broad coalition" to fight the militant group Islamic State, President Barack Obama´s hopes for international support for actions in Iraq and Syria appear to be gelling. But it remains to be seen whether this motley global crew, whose members have widely differing goals, can hang together for a mission that Obama has acknowledged could last

An Armenian Apostolic church constructed in memory of the victims of the 20th century Armenian genocide was “rigged and dynamited” on Sunday by forces loyal to the Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham (ISIS), according to reports from Syria’s government news agency. The Armenian Holy Martyrs Church in Der Zor, located in the Syrian desert 280 miles northeast of Damascus, was constructed in memory of the victims of the 1916 Armenian genocide and consecrated in 1991. The site was chosen because Der Zor is believed to have housed death camps in which an estimated 150,000 to 400,000 Armenians

There was no doubt that California would be ready to “represent” at the People’s Climate March on Sunday in New York to kick off the United Nations Climate Summit. Arriving in NYC aboard the People’s Climate Train, which travelled across the country from Emeryville California, Sister Ayya Santussika, a Buddhist nun, said that climate change is a “moral issue” and affects everyone of us. “The power of coming together as people of different faiths and speaking about this as a moral issue… I think this is powerful.” Zia Grossman-Vendrillo, from El Cerrito California, told KQED News that she doesn´t have a

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

After clinching the Republican nomination for the Alaska Senate race, Dan Sullivan has now surged six points according to a new Public Policy Polling poll. An August poll conducted prior to the primary showed Begich leading Sullivan 43 percent to 37 percent. But now Sullivan leads 43 percent while Begich has fallen two points. Begich suffered from campaign missteps earlier this month after his campaign was forced to pull a controversial negative ad. The poll surveyed 880 likely voters from September 18th to 21st - right after Begich cast the deciding vote to defeat an amendment proposed by Sen. Jeff Sessions

The three Afghan army officers who fled a joint military exercise on Cape Cod and were caught at the Canadian border spent the night before they bolted at a strip club, police and the club owner said. Richard Halpern, owner of Zachary´s Pub in Mashpee, said the Afghan officers were at his place Friday night for several hours and left at closing at 1 a.m. Mashpee Police Chief Rodney Collins also confirmed the officers were at the strip club. "They probably spent two or three hours in there," Halpern told the Herald. The officers are in custody of U.S. immigration personnel

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God. The phrase "the banality of evil" gets bandied about a

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

“You know,” he says. “It’s tough for people our age.” It’s 1 a.m. on a Monday, and I am currently on the phone having an argument with a guy I’d been on only four dates with, three of them good. One of them—the last—was less good, given he had gone MIA for the better part of three weeks and I had a sneaking suspicion he had a girlfriend. We hadn’t slept together, but the kisses had been the type of kisses you walk away from with shaky knees and blind hope. There was something there, and we both knew it, which is why we are attempting to hash things out over the phone at some ungodly hour.

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get -- in their own words -- "Rush Limbaugh off the air." The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email. The idea is to use the muscle of the
