to join Russia - but Ukrainian prime
minister warns separatist leaders that
the ´ground will burn under their feet´

Daily Mail [UK], by Chris Pleasance

Fireworks exploded and Russian flags were waved by jubilant crowds tonight after Crimea voted overwhelmingly to split from Ukraine and join Russia. With 50 percent of ballots counted, 95.5 percent of voters have backed passing control of the region from Kiev to Moscow. The result comes after Ukrainian prime minister Arseny Yatseniuk vowed to hunt down the ´separatist leaders´ in Crimea, warning that the ´ground will burn under their feet´. Speaking at a cabinet meeting, Yatseniuk said: ´We will find all of them--if it takes one year, two years--and bring them to justice and try them in Ukrainian and international

The Austrians welcomed Hitler and the Wehrmacht and waved NAZI flags.

I hope this means that Crimeans will be economically linked to Russia and not Ukraine. Some were quoted as wanting things to be like they were in the Soviet Union. So I hope they will be happy with their shortages of toilet paper, razor blades that tear their skin, dysfunctional cars, and all the rest. The idiots deserve whatever they get.

This is sounding like the last Tom Clancy book "Command Authority" where in order to avoid further conflict, we gave up the Crimea.
The Russians have a major Naval Base there and do not want it to fall into NATO hands. It was a part of Russia until Khrushchev gave it to The Soviet Ukraine. See:

This affair seems to be mostly about Russian domestic politics. Putin is talented at stoking Russian nationalism, and he´s done an excellent job of it in both the Russian Federation and the Crimea.

I wouldn´t be surprised, however, if he tries to break off a much bigger part of Ukraine for himself, however.

When asked about the crisis in the Ukraine and the Crimea, President Round Ball declared he would take action or make a statement after the March Madness basketball playoffs are finished.

´Come back sometime in April when the basketball playoffs are over he said´. Also he suggested that the dorky Kerry would be available for unimportant subjects such as International squabbles like the Russians turning us into cinders and stuff like that.

´Lets get our priorities straight´ he said.

I´m not sure how I feel about this. One the one hand, OK, you wanted it, now you have it. It´s your deal, not ours. But on the other hand we have Russia growing in strength every day it seems. You have to wonder if come January 2017 we can start reeling them in again with a strong President, or will it be too late by that time. Any way you look at it, though, from all appearances the situation would be considerably different if someone other that Lil barry was our President/

Before you folks start flapping your gums about this whole nasty mess... you might try talking to some people from Ukraine. I have several in my church. Their take on all this is about 180 from the US media (and what is being stated here as well) and they uniformly have told me that the "news" reported by Western media is a pile of steaming horse manure. Like most of humanity, there are no good guys, just bad guys and worse guys... and in this case Putin represents the bad guys.

Oh and remember... our president is Obama. THAT should be humbling enough to make us think twice before spouting off to others about their elections and leaders.

Ukraine passed a law making it illegal to speak Russian. Crimea has a 60% ethnic Russian majority. What part of this is so hard to understand? It is the equivalent of English being outlawed in Texas and the resulting vote is (rightfully) the same as it would be here.

The number of Americans who see illegal immigration as the nation´s most pressing problem has spiked from 3 per cent to 17 percent since May, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That percentage now tops government corruption, the U.S. economy, jobs, health care and every other hot-button issue, driven by a flood of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border. When Gallup announced the results of the same poll in two months age, ´immigration´ and ´illegal aliens´ ranked eleventh out of 47 issues, attracting a deep level of worry from fewer Americans than those

The surge of thousands of unaccompanied children illegally crossing the border from Mexico is being fueled by misperceptions about U.S. immigration policy rather than growing violence in Central American, according to a leaked report.

The White House refused to comply today with a subpoena issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee demanding that the president´s official political adviser testify before Congress. The president´s Director of the Office of Political Strategy & Outreach, David Simas, was scheduled to appear before the Oversight committee today to state for the record that his work does not violate a federal law that bans most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity. But White House Counsel W. Neil Eggleston sent a letter to the committee last night saying Congress doesn´t have the authority to require the president´s chief

Julian Assange sex case:
Warrant for Wikileaks founder upheld

A Swedish court has ruled that an arrest warrant against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on charges of sexual assault will stay in place. Mr Assange, who denies the allegations, has sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for the past two years to avoid extradition. If he is sent to Sweden, he says he fears charges in the US over the leaking of secret government documents. [Snip] "All in all, the district court makes the assessment that the reasons for the arrest warrant offset the infringement and adverse effects the measure entails for Julian Assange," Judge Lena Egelin said.

Dozens of protesters on both sides of the immigration debate showed up in a small town near Tucson on Tuesday after the sheriff said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths - but the kids never arrived. The rallies demonstrated the deep divide of the immigration debate. One group waved American flags, held signs that read ´Return to Sender´ and ´Go home non-Yankees´ and said they would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard. It turned heated at times, with shouting matches and a group of

Britain is to build the first spaceport outside of America by the year 2018, the government has announced. The facility will eventually enable tourists to take commercial flights to Australia in just two hours, but before that it will be used to launch British satellites. The government announced at Farnborough International Airshow that it has narrowed down the shortlist of sites to six in Scotland, one in Cornwall and one in Wales.[Snip] Space already makes the UK economy £11bn with everything from car navigation systems, to Sky TV to Satellite broadband for rural areas.

Israel has ordered thousands of Palestinians in eastern and northern Gaza to leave their homes as it continues air strikes. The warning came after an Egyptian truce initiative failed to halt militant rocket attacks on Israel. Hamas initially rejected the truce but an official later told the BBC it would consider a political solution. [Snip] The resumption of air strikes come after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had "no choice" but to step up the military campaign.

People who are most concerned about climate change use more electricity than those who believe it to be not so serious a threat, a government study has found. The Household Electricity Survey, commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said that this discrepancy may be due to the fact that older people, who are most likely to not see climate change as a threat, are generally more frugal with their energy consumption: [Snip] However, even with over-65s removed, there is still only a weak trend suggesting that people who profess to care about the environment actually do more

The first Israeli was killed by a missile fired from Gaza on Tuesday night setting the week-long conflict on course for an even bloodier new phase with Israel poised to escalate its military offensive. A 38-year-old man was pronounced death at Askelon´s Barzilai medical centre after suffering severe shrapnel wounds from a missile fired on Tuesday afternoon, according to initial Israeli media reports. The reports suggested he was an ultra-Orthodox rabbi distributing food to Israeli soldiers near the Erez border crossing into Gaza.

The pontiff said today that such measures should include an information campaign on the dangers of the journey.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
