We´ll freeze Russian billions, furious Cameron
warns Putin over jet outrage and tells him:
´You have contributed to an appalling tragedy´

Daily Mail [UK], by Jason Groves

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/21/2014 5:05:58 AM

David Cameron last night warned Vladimir Putin his billionaire ‘cronies’ will have their assets frozen in London unless he co-operates with the probe into Flight MH17. The Prime Minister vented his fury at Russia’s obstruction in a 30-minute phone call--the first direct contact between the leaders since the jet was shot down with the loss of 298 lives. He effectively blamed Russia, telling Mr Putin he had ‘contributed to an appalling tragedy’. And he urged him to ‘change course’ by calling off the armed thugs in eastern Ukraine thought to have been behind the atrocity that left ten Britons dead.

Comments:
And what are Kerry and Obama doing? Bloomberg.com early this morning:

“We are trying to encourage our European friends to realize this is a wake-up call,” Kerry said on “Fox News Sunday,” invoking a phrase used last week by Obama.

Wall Street Journal on the 17th:

The White House said Mr. Obama was briefed on the reports this morning and has directed officials to be in close contact with senior Ukrainian officials. Mr. Obama was traveling to Wilmington, Del., Thursday, to give a speech on transportation infrastructure.

Gahhh!

Obama is going to fundraisers to sustain his narcissistic bubble - the $ is secondary.

When thugs get in control of a government, they tend to stay. Look at Chicago, Russia, Detroit China, most of Africa and Cuba.

They stay long enough to financially bankrupt the entity, which often results in anarchy and which can lead to a Kratocracy. (Those who are strong enough to seize power through force or cunning.) Pray for America. Pray for righteous leaders to be evident to our citizens.

I imagine if 0bama speaks out too much about the "appalling tragedy", Putin might mention a few of 0bama´s own "appalling tragedies". 0bama´s might not be as blatant as a downed jet but he´s the owner of plenty of tragedies.

FTA: "The Prime Minister vented his fury at Russia’s obstruction ......"

Be wary of people, especially leaders, who vent their fury! An investigation of the tragedy has not even started yet, but that doesn´t stop Cameron from blaming Russia for the tragedy. Emotion (not facts) seems to be guiding Cameron´s reaction.

Obama and the EU have as much to do with the tragedies in the world as Russia. The biggest tragedy that has ever happened to America is Obama, and nothing should stand before impeaching Obama.

Beware, #6? Beware of leaders like Churchill, Thatcher, Reagan? Even FDR and JFK?

Enough facts are already in that we already know what happened. The "cool" reaction of Pution only confirms what we suspected. There is no need to wait for yet another "investigation" to let things cool off and avert effective action.

If the shootdown, killing 298 innocent people, and desecrating their bodies is not cause for fury: what is, #6?

Leaders motivate their people into action. "Venting" fury is an appropriate tool in that regard when the circumstances call for it. This circumstance calls for it.

A lot of families have lost loved ones and this whole situation has turned into a blame game. So far, I haven´t seen any convincing facts, merely finger pointing and innuendo. Exception is that the plane should not have been in that airspace.

Cameron´s rant at Putin may be warranted, but his outrage should have been vented and Russian billions frozen when Putin´s ventures started months ago. Same with No-Bama. Both leaders are ineffective.

Meanwhile, why isn´t our government doing something about the invasion of our country from the South by people who wouldn´t pass normal immigration laws.

Cameron has Amb Stevens blood on his hands.
Cameron, Hollande and Obama all attacked a sovereign nation because it´s nationalistic leader wanted to set up a gold backed currency.
They wanted the oil and the control.
Instead we have murder and mayhem.
Obama supported terrorist Muslim brotherhood in Eqypt and Hamas in Israel.
Cameron should focus on getting UK out of EU which has done nothing to help Ukraine for 20 years.

Instead of taking Crimea, writing off the rest of Ukraine as lost, and heading back to Moscow, Putin´s greed and ego led him to dabble about in Eastern Ukraine with some uncontrollable proxies to try to get just a little more. He doubled down on a losing hand, played it too aggressively, and got burned. Bonehead move. Two problems:

First the obvious, he´s going to lose Ukraine (except for Crimea). But it was lost already anyway. Now he got his nose bloodied to boot. He could have skated with Crimea untouched and relatively unsullied but NOOOO, he had to go for it.

Second, and this is even more important, in one move he destroyed all his international credibility as a masterful 21st Century player, ready to take the place of the US. Everything he earned when he embarrassingly outmaneuvered Obama in Syria has been squandered. He is now laid naked for what he is: just the latest in a long line of brutish Russian thugs. And for what? Ukraine?

The Age of Putin was short-lived and is now over. Putin strutting about with his shirt off will now be just a bad joke. Next up: China. Whose fishing boats will they blast out of the water? By the time this is all over America is going to be looking pretty good.

Does anyone seriously think Putin ordered this bunch of ignorant peons to shoot down a passenger jet, kill around 300 civilians, and create an international incident? Yes he supplied the weapons but they were supposed to be used against the Ukrainian forces. And why is no one faulting the Malaysian airline for flying over a war zone? This airline knew perfectly well they are soldiers on the ground with such weapons and they are trigger happy. I´m no fan of Putin but I´d take him over what we´ve anytime.

The point is that Putie should have kept his behind out of Crimea and Ukraine in the first place and kept his thugs elsewhere. He bears direct responsibility for the shootdown. Obie bears indirect responsibility due to his failure to lead in foreign policy. I am sure others bear responsibility as well.

The tragedy is going to happen again this winter when Putin turns off the heat. This flaccid attempt to try to make Putin look bad to the rest of the world by shaming him with the downing of a civilian passenger jet is using innocent lives for some twisted kabuki theater. The EU is pathetically trying to be the last dog to urinate on the fire hydrant, terrified about the Gazprom contracts Putin is holding over their pointed heads. There are no winners and there are no good guys, only bad guys in the whole enchilada pretzel. And then there´s the American yeast infected Alinsky-ites utterly clueless, yet caring nothing about it because they´re too busy putting their Cloward-Piven jones on the USA. If old Billy knew how prophetic he was about the leaders of the world right now, the tale told by the idiots, "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Europe´s going to get plenty cold this winter.

Australian warplanes are being deployed to the Middle East to join the US-led campaign of air strikes on jihadist targets in northern Iraq, Defense Minister David Johnston said on Monday. "We will provide a number of military platforms, up to eight Super Hornet aircraft to participate in a US-led coalition in delivering air strikes," he told reporters in Baghdad after meeting Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced on September 14 that Australia would send fighter jets and forces to the United Arab Emirates as its contribution to the US-led military effort against the Islamic State (IS)

Barren land, dams with no water reaching them, boats anchored in dried-up reservoirs and shrinking lake levels. These extraordinary images show the devastating impact the worst droughts in decades is having on the American West - and forecasters have predicted it is likely to continue. Around 430,000 acres of land will be left fallow in California - because there hasn´t been enough rain or snow coming from the nearby mountain ranges. Farmers - who are daily facing the prospect of losing their jobs and everything they have - are hoping for relief this winter, but the situation still remains dire.

Tony Blair is right. Before you harrumph and turn away, listen to his argument. It is--in short--that there is a global threat from militant Islamism. That it is spreading--and it is getting worse. And that we must act. It is clear that there is a fundamental problem with radical Islamism; clear that it is deep; clear that the solutions are not easy or presently to hand; clear that this is the work of a generation, not an election cycle; and clear--most important of all--that this is "our" challenge and not simply "theirs".

Turkey has begun to close some of its border crossings with Syria after about 130,000 Kurdish refugees entered the country over the weekend. On Sunday Turkish security forces clashed with Kurds protesting in solidarity with the refugees. Some protesters were reportedly trying to go to Syria to fight Islamic State (IS). Most refugees are from Kobane, a town threatened by the advancing militants. IS has taken over large swathes of Iraq and Syria in recent months. Before the latest influx, there were already more than one million Syrian refugees in Turkey. They have fled since the start of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar

Kurdish fighters have issued an urgent call to arms amid warnings of an impending massacre by the Islamic State terrorist group in northern Syria. The Kurdish People´s Protection Unit (YPG) has been locked in a fierce battle with IS and other Islamist groups almost since the start of Syria´s civil war. Despite being relatively isolated and receiving no foreign aid from any states the YPG has proven perhaps the most effective force in pushing back against IS. But as the jihadis´ focus shifts to consolidating power in northern Syria the Kurds have found themselves under fiercer attack than ever.

The MEP asked all 59 MPs from Scottish constituencies to promise in writing not to take part in votes and debates in the Commons which have no impact on Scotland.

In a move designed to upstage the Labour conference, which started on Friday, the Prime Minister raised the stakes in the bitter war of words that has raged since the Scottish referendum. Mr Cameron called on Mr Miliband to drop his opposition to Tory plans for ‘English votes for English laws’ to match devolved powers for Scotland, which have been promised now the Scots have voted to reject independence.

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´.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.
