A solemn final journey: Convoy of
74 hearses carries the bodies of
MH17 victims to military barracks in
Holland to be identified by team

A convoy of hearses today carried a second batch of MH17 victims to a military barracks in Holland following the coffins´ arrival in the Netherlands. The hearses, carrying the bodies and remains of 74 victims of the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight, travelled slowly from Eindhoven air base to Hilversum. Police asked members of the public not to stop on the highway - but many lined bridges to take photos and pay their respects to the victims. The bodies later arrived at Korporaal van Oudheusden military barracks, where they will be identified by a team of forensic experts in a tortuous

Someone said this this was Holland´s 9/11. And considering it is a small country, I´m inclined to agree.

What a contrast from the crude inhuman, Auschwitz like handling by the Russian supported rebels. Putin´s feet should be held to the fire. But there is little hope of that. He has Zippy´s number.

Democrats launch Benghazi website
ahead of committee hearing
Washington Times (D.C), by David Sherfinski    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/17/2014 6:17:46 AM     Post Reply
Ahead of the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s highly-anticipated first public hearing Wednesday, Democrats offered some of their own answers to questions surrounding the terrorist attack while Republicans urged them not to prejudge the investigation before it starts. The jockeying follows months of behind-the-scenes work that will culminate in an open airing of how well the State Department has done in implementing its own internal review panel’s recommendations for fixing the kinds of problems that led to the attack, which cost the lives of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Maryland Democrat and the

Five questions about W.H. Ebola push

The unveiling of President Obama’s new plan to contain the Ebola virus did little to appease critics who questioned the White House’s commitment to halting an epidemic with wide-ranging national security consequences. After weeks of prodding from African nations, the president on Tuesday used a trip to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to announce a blueprint to send up to 3,000 military personnel to West Africa, part of an effort to spend roughly $750 million to limit the spread of Ebola. "Ebola is now an epidemic of the likes we have not seen before,” Obama insisted. "It is

MINNEAPOLIS — After a day of public pressure from angry fans and concerned sponsors, the Minnesota Vikings have reversed course and placed star running back Adrian Peterson on the exempt-commissioner’s permission list, a move that will require him to stay away from the team while he addresses child abuse charges in Texas. The Vikings made the announcement early Wednesday morning, about a day and a half after initially deciding that Peterson could play with the team while the legal process played out. Peterson is charged with a felony for using a wooden switch to spank his 4-year-old son and now

The Slippery Slope Begins

A week ago, President Obama stood before the American people and promised that the expanding fight against the Islamic State — a vicious Sunni militant group known as ISIS or ISIL that is terrorizing parts of Iraq and Syria — would not mean a commitment of American ground troops. “As I have said before, these American forces will not have a combat mission,” he said. On Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had a very different message when he testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee. “If we reach the point where I believe

Like some of you, I´ve wondered about President Obama´s inner circle. I am not talking about the people with titles or all of "suits" who move around with him from one place to another. In other words, whom does he go to for advice, for geopolitical thinking or just plain common sense? Whom does he speak confidentially with? Does he call, say, President Bush-41 and get some thoughts about putting together a coalition? Has he spoken to President Bush-43 about shifting strategies, like the surge of 2007? Has he spoken to President Clinton about revamping his administration, as we saw

Asked whether the Dems are lining up to protect former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the upcoming Benghazi hearings, Rep. Luis Gutierrez said she doesn’t need political cover. A State Department employee has alleged that sources close to Hillary withheld damning documents from Congress regarding the security lapse the night of the Benghazi attack, The Daily Caller reported Monday. “Let me just say one thing about Hillary Clinton,” Rep. Gutierrez told TheDC. “She can take of herself. She demonstrated that at the hearings.” “My job is not to protect a candidate or a political party,” he continued. “But to

When actors play doctors on TV, that does not make them actual doctors. And that does not mean they should scour some Internet boards, confront their pediatricians, and demand fewer vaccinations for their children, as some Hollywood parents in Los Angeles have apparently been doing. The Hollywood Reporter has a great investigation for which it sought the vaccination records of elementary schools all over Los Angeles County. They found that vaccination rates in elite neighborhoods like Santa Monica and Beverly Hills have tanked, and the incidence of whooping cough there has skyrocketed. Here´s a map of the schools with dangerously

The United States has long known what happened to Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty at the CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, on the night of Sept. 11, 2012. These security operators and former Navy SEALs died in mortar attacks launched by Libyan militants as they fought from an annex rooftop to protect the facility and about two dozen U.S. personnel on site. What happened just following their combat deaths wasn’t quite as well known. As detailed in the new book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi,” Delta Force members grabbed their bodies. The book describes

Imagine the absurdity of reporting on supporters of Richard Nixon during the Watergate hearings with no mention of the White House Plumbers who performed the break-in at the complex. Such is the case now with Politico reporting on groups of Hillary Clinton supporters who will be defending her during the Congressional Benghazi hearings which makes absolutely no mention of the Sharyl Attkisson´s report about how Hillary´s aides at the State Department scrubbed the Benghazi documents of possibly incriminating information. To get an idea how ridiculous it is for Politico to avoid the Benghazi elephant in the room, let us first

Washington -Leaders from both parties expressed confidence Tuesday that the House would support President Obama´s request to arm Syrian rebels in the fight against Islamic State militants, an important component of the administration´s broader strategy to confront the extremist forces. But after a day of back-to-back private meetings among lawmakers, the political landscape in advance of Wednesday´s expected vote appeared to be shifting, particularly for Democrats whose votes will be needed for passage. "There´s a growing sense that this whole thing is problematic," Rep. Rick Nolan (D-Minn.), who opposes the

As the pounding of war drums intensifies against ISIS and its advances in Iraq and Syria, at least one senator is voicing opposition to plans to arm Syrian rebels and says he´s willing to shut down the government over it. Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat who often finds himself at odds with the White House, said spending $500 million to provide weapons to groups in Syria that are fighting both ISIS and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will backfire. "At the end of the day, most of the arms that we give to people are used against us. Most

Sen.

We will -- I wouldn´t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice was fired from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the face in an

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

[Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.
