Associated Press, by Julie Pace

WASHINGTON— The United States began building a case Friday that would pin the blame for the downing of the passenger jet over Ukraine on separatist forces supported by Russia. President Barack Obama said one American was among the nearly 300 killed in an disaster that could dramatically escalate the crisis in Ukraine. Obama said evidence so far indicates that Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile from an area controlled by Russian-backed separatists. He noted it wasn´t the first time the separatists had shot down planes in the region, adding that a "steady flow of support

Headline should have read: Russians shoot down aircraft with 295 Human beings, many women and children.

The missile didn´t do it by itself.

Wonder if the Won said he was mad as hell, at Putin, and wasn´t going to take it anymore? And then after being so mad he went for a beer, a burger with fries at a local eatery and then went for a long game of golf? Same would be par for the course with/for Obama. Pun intended!

Joni Ernst’s Iowa campaign makes

The Machine Shed restaurant, where the waitresses wear bib overalls and suggest a cinnamon roll the size of a loaf of bread as a breakfast appetizer, sells a root beer called Dang!, bandages made to look like bacon strips, and signs that proclaim, “I love you more than bacon.” For Joni Ernst, however, the apposite sign reads, “No one ever injured their eyesight by looking on the bright side.” She, nourished by a cinnamon roll, is preparing for a bus tour taking her Senate candidacy to all of Iowa’s 99 counties, and she seems to love campaigning even more than

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” says the ancient proverb. But don’t tell that to President Obama, who is furiously bombing Bashar al-Assad’s enemies in Syria while insisting that Mr. Assad’s regime is also the enemy. Best also not to remind Mr. Obama about leading from behind, or of his arguments against being drawn into the Syrian civil war or getting embroiled in any Middle Eastern conflicts. This was the week the president went before the United Nations General Assembly and proclaimed, in effect, that the United States was back out front again — not only against the

The RAF is flying bombing missions over Iraq, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed. Two armed RAF Tornado aircraft, plus a refuelling aircraft, took off from their base in Cyprus today to target Isis terrorists. The Ministry of Defence said in a statement: ´We can confirm that, following parliamentary approval given yesterday, RAF Tornados continue to fly over Iraq and are now ready to be used in an attack role as and when appropriate targets are identified. ´For operational security reasons we will not be providing a running commentary on movements; we will provide an update on activity when it

Fourteen people were shot across the South Side in a 14-hour period starting about 2 p.m. Friday afternoon and continuing into Saturday morning, according to police. Nine of the 14 were wounded in the Englewood police district - a 20-block-by-22-block square from Garfield Boulevard 20 blocks south to 75th Street and from the Dan Ryan Expressway to a viaduct just west of Leavitt Street. The shootings included a pair of homicides that each left two others wounded and two other shootings that left men in their 20s or 30s with survivable gunshot wounds, police said.

Will Obama Try to Put Holder

There has been a lot of buzz around the blogosphere regarding the recent announcement that Attorney General Eric Holder will resign his position “as soon as a replacement can be found.” Rush Limbaugh opined that Holder may have resigned now to grease the skids for the President to nominate him to the high court. Now would be a good time, while the President has a majority in the Senate, or at least it looks good if you don’t look too closely. Arguing against such a move would be that Obama would have to convince one of the sitting justices to

Bill Maher Battles Gen. Tony Zinni
over Whether ‘Latte-gate’ Was Disrespectful
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article

Bill Maher could not believe the completely ridiculous “latte-gate” controversy swirling this week about President Obama‘s coffee cup salute. He mocked the hype and said, “If this offends you that much, you should marry your teddy bear.” General Anthony Zinni actually told Maher he was bothered by Obama’s salute, because it struck him as disrespectful. He said it was more like a “frat house” gesture than something the President of the United States would do. Maher and Zinni ended up battling over the origins of the salute, and of the president giving the salute. Maher said it’s a fairly recent

What´s a war without a code name?

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such

Months after statewide voter turnout hit a historic low of 25% in this year´s primary election, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday signed eight bills aimed at getting more Californians to participate in the political process. He also signed dozens of other bills Friday — a hodgepodge that included new rights for gay and transgender Californians, a requirement that state prisons expand the availability of condoms to inmates and measures that promote the "farm to fork" movement to increase consumer access to fresh food. The voting-related measures will allow absentee ballots mailed on election day to be counted as long as

Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s international foundation, in the spotlight this month for hosting the annual Clinton Global Initiative in New York, back two groups that operate a massive international abortion business, including one that heralded its 4,000 abortions in a 2013 annual report. Clinton Foundation documents show that it supports two groups that provide abortion services and supplies in Africa, India and Asia — Pathfinder International and Population Services International. The foundation, which publicly focuses on help for AIDS in Africa, climate change and support for girls, is being scrutinized as Hillary Clinton readies a likely 2016 presidential bid.

Oklahoma got a dose of peace yesterday, when Alton Nolen, apparently a Muslim convert, beheaded a co-worker at the food company where he worked. He attacked a second woman and would have killed her too, except that the company’s COO has a gun and knows how to use it. This could actually be a case of workplace violence, as the attack occurred immediately after Alton had been fired. (For what, has not been reported.) Nolen had a colorful criminal record, which makes one wonder how he got a job at all when millions are unemployed. Paul has written about the

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Attorney General Eric Holder´s abrupt announcement that he intends to leave the Obama administration as soon as the president is able to find someone to take over for him was initiated by his doctor wife´s concerns about his health, a news report revealed on Thursday.

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious. For those who don’t recall the details, here’s Wikipedia: In 1983

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to raise the minimum wage for hotel workers to $15.37, one of the highest wage requirements in the country. Hotel workers in yellow shirts packed City Hall as the council voted 12 to 3 to approve the measure, which will go into effect for hotels with at least 300 rooms beginning in July. Hotels with 150 rooms or more will have to meet the wage requirement a year later. “Hotel workers are here because they want family-supporting wages,” said Maria Elena Durazo, executive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, during the public

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God. (Snip...) "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen. Pat Roberts in a bitter Republican primary fight, is considering some political payback: Endorsing Kansas independent Greg Orman, sources said Thursday night. But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter. One person said Orman’s team sought the meeting but there was no
