US: No direct link to
Russia found in MH17 attack

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/22/2014 9:47:14 PM

Senior U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday that Russia was responsible for “creating the conditions” that led to the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, but they offered no evidence of direct Russian government involvement. The intelligence officials were cautious in their assessment, noting that while the Russians have been arming separatists in eastern Ukraine, the U.S. had no direct evidence that the missile used to shoot down the passenger jet came from Russia. The officials briefed reporters Tuesday under ground rules that their names not be used in discussing intelligence related to last week’s air disaster, which killed 298

Comments:
Well .. how can we not believe that´s true. AP is reporting what senior U.S intelligence officials said. But ... I must say I´m quite impressed that any U.S. government employee came up with an answer so quickly using social media postings by separatists.

Further down the article it says U.S. is holding Putin and Russian govt responsible for providing weapons. Does that mean Obama is responsible for the death of thousands of Syrian Christians because he provided the rebels with weapons?

Cuomo wins Democratic primary
New York Post, by Antonio Antenucci, Aaron Short, *    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 9/10/2014 9:36:17 AM     Post Reply
Gov. Cuomo won his Democratic primary fight Tuesday — but not without getting bruised by little-known leftist insurgent Zephyr Teachout’s surprisingly strong showing. With 94 percent of the ballots counted, Teachout had 34.6 percent of the vote to Cuomo’s 61.7 percent — even though she ran a shoestring campaign against a well-financed incumbent who outspent her 10 to 1. And a third candidate on the ballot, Randy Credico, got about 3.7 percent — meaning that almost 40 percent of Dem voters cast their ballots against the gov. Teachout — whom Cuomo tried to vhave booted from the ballot — won

Ryan’s ‘The Way Forward’
Draws Compelling Blueprint For
a Presidential Campaign
New York Sun, by R. Emmett Tyrrell    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 9/9/2014 4:38:07 PM     Post Reply
There is a mystery about Congressman Paul Ryan’s new and very good book, “The Way Forward: Renewing the American Dream.” Perhaps there are several mysteries. Mr. Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee and Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate, begins by writing at length about the place he has lived all his life, Janesville, a town of 60,000 in southern Wisconsin. It is rural, but it also has industry. Moreover it has Ryans. Sixty-seven of his cousins live nearby. The Ryans have lived there for generations along with other Catholics, Protestants, and presumably citizens oblivious to religion’s call.

This won’t do. The Baltimore Ravens fired running back Ray Rice after a second video surfaced — this one showing him punching his then fiancee, Janay. The NFL also suspended Rice indefinitely so that no other team could sign him. Carson, a former professor and director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, said that he hoped the league would get some help for Rice. (snip) They only fired Rice because he became an even bigger public relations problem for them? The Ravens had Janay come out and apologize alongside Ray Rice, after the first video surfaced.

U.S. Nets Joins British Authorities
in Hushing Muslim Sex Abuse Scandal
Media Reseach Center, by Kristine Marsh    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 9/9/2014 8:07:30 AM     Post Reply
Imagine a sex scandal centered on a small area, involving decades of abuse, with hundreds of children raped, assaulted and prostituted. Authorities suspected or knew of the crimes but did nothing, preferring to protect the abusers than aid their victims or see justice done. If that city were in, say, Ireland, and the abusers Catholic priests, the U.S. networks would report it immediately and continuously. And rightly so. But move that city to northern England, and make the perpetrators Muslim men? Don’t look to ABC, NBC or CBS for details.

The Obama administration, the CIA, and even some congressional committees—they all said there “was no ´stand down´ order.” But now five men who helped ward off the terrorists that attacked U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya two years ago say it´s only because they defied such an order that as many as 25 Americans are alive today. “There’s quite a few—the soft-skins, we call them, or the non-shooters,” Kris “Tanto” Paronto, one of the security contractors that fateful evening, said in a phone interview on early Monday afternoon. “They’re all still working.

Twenty-one “floaters” — or human corpses that rise up from the watery depths — have been pulled from New York City waters this year, up from 17 last year, The Post has learned. The bodies have bubbled up in the East and Hudson rivers, grossing out joggers, bikers and sunbathers. “I’ve never seen a body like that before. I’m kind of sick to my stomach,” said jogger James Mills, who spotted cops yanking a body from the Hudson on Aug.?18. “His skin looked like it was coming off. I wish I hadn’t seen that.

On Monday´s New Day on CNN, Jonathan Martin of the New York Times and Bloomberg´s Margaret Tavel ran to President Obama´s defense over his handling of ISIS. Martin hyped that "the President is in a tough spot here....these two beheadings of journalists...have really outraged a lot of folks....and the President is forced to act. But again, there is not any appetite in this country to put ground troops back in that region. And so, the President is somewhat handcuffed."

James O’Keefe’s latest video may seem flip at first glance. He suits up a “terrorist” and boats him across Lake Erie into Cleveland, Ohio. But when you consider the fact that there are an estimated 500 British passport holders currently fighting for the IS, along with over 100 Americans and an untold number of Europeans fighting alongside the terrorists, the subject of border security takes on a greater urgency. The fact that this could happen, as O’Keefe films it, is a grave concern.

A respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors say. The disease hasn´t been officially identified but officials suspect a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold. According to Mark Pallansch, director of the Division of Viral Diseases at the CDC, similar cases to the ones in Colorado have been cropping up across the U.S. At least 10 states -- Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky,

President Obama spoke about ISIS at length in his Meet the Press interview this morning, but he didn´t offer much clarity as to what he´s going to do about ISIS. One might say he´s learned from bitter experience not to lay down red lines, and that he ´s being purposefully vague. But I´m afraid the truth is closer to what Jonah Goldberg´s mordant comment: "Everyone’s talking about what the president should say. The assumption is that saying something will reflect a policy of doing something. But that isn’t how Obama sees the situation. He wants to say something that will

A new religious group aims to bring the devil to Detroit. The Satanic Temple today marks the launch of its first chapter outside New York. But leaders say they don’t worship Satan. They don’t practice cannibalism, or sacrifice people or animals. “It’s peaceful,” said Jex Blackmore, 32, local leader and part of the temple’s executive ministry. “The idea of sacrifice specifically is to appease some demon or some god, and that’s a supernatural belief that we don’t subscribe to.” The group’s tenets include free will, compassion toward all creatures, respect of others’ freedom — including freedom to offend — and

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

Washington — Panera Bread on Monday asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, joining a growing list of retail and fast-food chains that have declared their establishments gun-free zones. The company said it wants to ensure that "customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants. “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday.

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
