New details of tragedy
emerge in Pistorius case,
per South African newspaper

Yahoo Sports, by Jay Busbee

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/16/2013 2:58:41 PM

A new report out of South Africa indicates that Oscar Pistorius carried Reeva Steenkamp downstairs from the bathroom where he had allegedly shot her, and attempted to perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation while attempting to save her life. The report comes via Beeld, an Afrikaaans-language newspaper in South Africa. The newspaper reported that Steenkamp was still breathing when local security guards and neighbors arrived at Pistorius´ house, but died shortly afterward. She had been shot four times through the bathroom door. While the first reports indicated that Pistorius had believed

Oscar lived inside a large home that has a high security gate to deter intruders. The house in turn, is inside a gated community meant to do the same. His claim that a surprise 40 am visit by his blonde model girlfriend was mistaken for an intruder can only be viewed as highly suspicious. Shooting her 4 times through the locked bathroom door and then carrying her downstairs means that he had on his prosthetic legs, which are normally not worn while sleeping.

Finally, Reeva S.was about to speak about domestic violence from a personal perspective this coming week. Question is whether Oscar was one of her abusive lovers. Such a revelation would ruin the lucrative value of Oscar unless he happened to be a Democrat.

I can´t tell you how many times intruders have invaded my home - - and then locked themselves in my bathroom.

I wish I had a dollar for every time that has happened. Like Pistorius, I occasionally blast a few shells through the door - - but I´ve never hit anyone. The intruders usually do their "duty" in the bathroom - - and then just kind of slink away.

So - - based on my own personal experiences - - I have to believe this guy.

Under the most charitable possible reading of what has been reported, he shot and killed an unarmed woman. He´s been charged with premeditated murder. That suggests that what we don´t know yet won´t help him. And I don´t want to help him.

Off the main topic but I have noticed that the Afrikaaans-language newspapers are way less PC, carry a lot more detail on South African events, and they do provide English translations on their websites.
When the young American was mauled by two chimps at the Jane Goodall place last year, the Afrikaaans newspapers gave detailed accounts while the "international press" reports suppressed any hint that the chimp attack was unprovoked.

WASHINGTON — In the end, the White House solved the most delicate protocol issue of Tuesday’s state dinner for President François Hollande of France in a dignified but creative way. Seated at President Obama’s right under a shimmering white tent on the South Lawn was Thelma Golden, the director of the Studio Museum in Harlem, who 20 years ago mounted a provocative exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art titled “Black Male.” (Snip) To Michelle Obama’s left was Stephen Colbert, the comedian and television host, whose connection to France consists largely in his determination to pronounce his surname as

Sochi Winter Olympics 2014:

While the spectacle of the world´s most expensive Olympics, with its inflatable St. Basil´s, technical glitches, unceremonial slip-ups and surreptitious signs of protest, had a global audience captivated, all eyes were on the torch bearers, in particular, gymnast Alina Kabayeva, who also happens to be President Vladimir Putin´s girlfriend. Putin had earlier refuted suggestions that Kabayeva would be afforded the special privilege of wielding the Olympic torch at the opening ceremony. "I´m aware of this [speculation that Kabayeva will light the flame]," he said. "I was told of this by [Kremlin spokesman] Dmitry Peskov. These are the usual red herrings.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – This time around, the judges gave Sage Kotsenburg the score he deserved. And Kotsenburg gave the United States the first gold medal of the Sochi Games. Kotsenburg, the 20-year-old from Park City, Utah, stomped a 93.5 on his first run of the inaugural Olympic slopestyle contest and watched it hold up in a massive upset. As top competitors Max Parrot and Mark McMorris of Canada faltered, Kotsenburg took advantage with an array of technical tricks like the Japan air and a double nose-grab. And with Shaun White having dropped out of slopestyle earlier this week, Kotsenburg picked up the

BERLIN — Germans were already smarting from revelations that U.S. intelligence listened in on the phone conversations of Chancellor Angela Merkel. Then came Nulandgate. On Thursday, a video was posted on YouTube in which Victoria Nuland, the top U.S. diplomat for Europe, disparagingly dismissed European Union efforts to mediate the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine by bluntly saying, “F--- the E.U.” On Friday, Merkel, through press attache Christiane Wirtz, described the gaffe as “absolutely unacceptable,” and defended the efforts of Catherine Ashton, the E.U.’s foreign policy chief.

SOCHI, Russia – From the gently rolling Black Sea to the jagged Caucasus Mountains, from gleaming modern stadiums to colorfully ancient Matryoshka dolls, the Sochi Olympics open Friday with every conceivable natural wonder except one. There is a visible lack of joy. The strong-armed dream of Russian President Vladimir Putin has thus far succeeded not in embellishing the Olympic motto, but altering it, from ´´swifter, higher, stronger´´ to, "unfinished, unsettling and uninviting.´´ Along the cramped streets in the Adler neighborhood above Olympic Park, the locals keep their heads down and their expressions grim as they walk through a shopping district

Yesterday in an interview with Fox News host and my squash partner, Bill O´Reilly, President Obama slapped Fox News for covering stuff like the IRS and ObamaCare.(Snip)Now, blaming Fox News for Obama´s scandals is like blaming rubble for an earthquake. FNC did not create ObamaCare or target enemies for IRS investigations. His people inflicted that pain. FNC just asked about the bruising. But to use a football metaphor, once again, FNC is that sole remaining cheerleader who won´t end up under the bleachers with the star QB. Sorry, O. We aren´t like all those other MSM floozies.

By now you´ve all seen the communal commodes. But in addition to the privacy issues, a Twitter post shows Sochi bathroom goers may have a whole other set of rules to contend with while doing their business. This weekend, Canadian snowboarder Sebastien Toutant tweeted a photo from the bowels of a Sochi restroom. The six-paneled placard illustrated five bathroom don´ts in addition to the proper throne-sitting do. Fishing, of course, is out. Bowing to the porcelain gods is verboten. If the bowl squat is your jam, then you´re out of luck. The last square, however, is somewhat of a mystery.

Replacing the Keystone XL pipeline with oil-laden freight trains from Canada may result in an average of six additional rail-related deaths per year, according to a U.S. State Department report that is adding to pressure for President Barack Obama to approve the line. The long-awaited study, released on Friday, focused on the environmental impact of TransCanada´s $5.4 billion pipeline, but also spent several pages analyzing the potential human impact of various ways to transport oil, using historical injury and fatality statistics for railways and oil pipelines.

Former CIA Director Mike Morell may have altered the Benghazi talking points to benefit the Obama administration during the 2012 election, Catherine Herridge of Fox News reports. On September 15 one day before Susan Rice made her infamous appearances on various Sunday shows, according to the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report Morell received an email from the CIA station chief in Libya indicating the Benghazi attacks were “not/not an escalation of protests.” The report does not indicate when Morell read the email, but that same day Morell cut the word “Islamic” from the talking points and left the word “demonstration.”

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term.
