    International prosecutors say Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was downed over eastern Ukraine in 2014 by a Buk missile that had come from Russia. They also narrowed down the area it was fired from to a field in territory controlled by Russian-backed rebels. All 298 people on board the Boeing 777 died when it broke apart in mid-air flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

    The U.S. Department of Justice won’t release the names of attorneys whose conduct in a high-profile immigration case was called “unseemly and unprofessional” by a federal judge, or whether those attorneys will face internal disciplinary action. The DOJ says it “emphatically” disagrees with Judge Andrew Hanen’s May order in State of Texas, et al. v. United States of America, et al., in which he wrote that he was “disappointed” that the court even had to address the subject of lawyer behavior when it has “many more pressing matters on its docket.” Hanen concluded that DOJ attorneys “effectively misled” the plaintiff...

    LANHAM, Md. — The Prince George’s County Public School system has been rocked by allegations of abused students and teacher misconduct. But the scene Wednesday was celebratory as students, teachers and school officials at two schools came together to honor a bus driver who risked her life for kids on board a bus when it caught fire earlier this month. Students at Robert Goddard Montessori and Glen Arden Woods Elementary pulled out all the stops Wednesday for bus driver Renita Smith, who evacuated 20 children from the burning bus and went back into the flames to make sure everyone...

    A Danish far-right group faced criticism on Wednesday after handing out "asylum spray" to be used against violent migrants. In the southern town of Haderslev, 137 cans of relabelled hair spray were given away to the public on Saturday by the far-right Party of the Danes, which does not hold any seats in parliament. "The asylum spray is a concrete reaction against more Danes feeling insecure," party leader Daniel Carlsen, a former member of a Nazi group that he now distances himself from, told AFP. "Some Danish girls don't dare to go outside after it gets dark, partly because there...

    HOLLIDAYSBURG - Blair County has received requests for almost 800 absentee ballots so far from registered voters who want to participate in the November election. The normal number is about 300, county Director of Elections Sarah Seymour said Friday. And there's still time to ask - through Nov. 1. Pennsylvania's election laws allow the distribution of absentee ballots for several reasons. In Blair County, the elections office typically distributes them, upon request, to voters who will be outside their municipality on Election Day and to voters with an illness or disability...(snip) Seymour also said Friday that her office has received...

    A grand jury on Thursday accused former state Senate candidate Carlos Villanueva of illegally applying for absentee ballots in the names of three dead people in 2014. In an interview, Villanueva said he didn’t break the law and will plead not guilty. He was simply testing the election system, he said, to make sure safeguards were in place to prevent people from voting under the names of dead people. Election officials should have flagged the requests and refused to mail the ballots, he said. “I would never do anything criminal,” Villanueva said. “That is not me.”

    People walk in front of the United Nations Headquarters in New York July 31, 2008. Prominent theologians and scholars are saying this week that while globalism may be a buzzword this election season, too few understand the demonic forces driving this ideology. As The New York Times reported Monday, until relatively recently it was rare to hear people referred to as "globalists" but the label is more common now. And while many globalists claim to have the interests of the entire world at heart, the irony is that they have become a tribe of sorts; and they are a...

    Former Philly Fed President Charles Plosser got a lot off his chest this morning during a Bloomberg TV interview. Decrying that central bankers "wring their hands all the time," Plosser noted that The Fed was very "concerned about credibility," and was "pretty good at conjuring up reasons not to act." His mutinous discussion then concluded, sounding very Trumpian, by noting that The Fed "shouldn't be afraid a recession might come," exclaiming "there's a real problem here" with The Fed.

Sightings — which frequently involve people hearing the cuckoo’s distinctive “klak-klak” sound — have been recorded in Mesa and Delta counties in previous years. ... “We have changed the initial map due to comments from the proposed...

    TEHRAN, Iran — Before being elected president of Iran in June 2013, Hassan Rouhani was known as a close friend and constant companion of Expediency Council Chairman Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Rouhani’s management of the initial round of nuclear negotiations with the West — the failed engagement with Britain, France and Germany over 2003-2005 — earned him the nickname “the Diplomat Sheikh.” However, throughout his career, including when he was secretary of the Supreme National Security Council during the presidency of Mohammad Khatami, when he was removed from this post by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and finally when he started...

    Al Arabiya ^ | Tuesday, 27 September
    Saudi ministers will see a drop in their salaries of 20 percent, while members of Shura council’s wages are to be 15 percent less. The move follows a royal decree and Cabinet statement released Monday, in which the Saudi government announced the suspension of wage increases. During its meeting the Saudi cabinet also agreed to cancel the payment of bonuses, allowances, rewards and financial benefits. According to statistics, a minister’s salary amounts to 51,750 Saudi Riyals (SAR) – that’s nearly $13,800. But with the wage cut this figure will be reduced to 41,400SAR ($11,034). There are 143 Ministers, with a...

Eric Sample argued that the rules governing the Intoxilyzer 8000 were not valid. The Intoxilyzer 8000 is the machine that drivers blow into after being arrested on suspicion of DUI. Sample’s attorneys say DPS has had several years to fix the problem and get valid rules in place, but they haven’t. Now, as a result of the Supreme Court decision, thousands of DUI offenders could get their licenses back.

    There is something close to a consensus view among pundits that Hillary Clinton “won” the first presidential debate. As has been true throughout the campaign, the pundits are wrong about Trump. The kind of people who watch a presidential debate with a notepad found Hillary to be well organized, articulate, knowledgeable, and fully presidential. By the conventional rules of the cognitive elite, Trump lost. He was spontaneous, not memorized, emotional, not controlled, and downright angry at times as he reviewed what’s happened to our country over the last decades – the “30 years” Hillary Clinton has been in politics.

    Southern California police agencies regularly lose track of all manner of firearms, from high-powered rifles and grenade launchers to standard service handguns – weapons that often wind up on the street. An Orange County Register investigation of 134 state and local police agencies from Kern County to the Mexican border found that over the past five years at least 329 firearms were lost by or stolen from law enforcement agencies. Dozens of these weapons wound up in the hands of criminals – and some were involved in crimes. In Northern California, a missing police gun was used in a suspected...

    Cruz and Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., introduced the Protecting Internet Freedom Act in June to prevent the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, an agency of the Commerce Department, from allowing an ICANN-related contract to expire at the end of this month. The internet, an “oasis of freedom,” could become much less free if the United States doesn’t keep guardianship over it, Sen. Ted Cruz said Wednesday during a hearing on Capitol Hill. “The internet is one of the most revolutionary forces ever unleashed on the world,” Cruz, R-Texas, said during the Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing. “People even meet and get...

    It is unlikely that any of the Waco Twin Peaks criminal conspiracy cases will be resolved before Monday, July 31, 2017. That is the date when federal prosecutors now must present their witness lists to defense attorneys in a federal racketeering case titled United States v. Portillo et al. That indictment in that case never once mentions the Waco biker brawl of May 17, 2015 but charges former Bandidos vice president John Xavier Portillo, former club president Jeffrey Fay Pike, sergeant at arms Justin Cole Forster and club member Frederick Cortez with “various overt racketeering acts including…War with Cossacks Outlaw...

    Clinton Campaign Accepting The Loss of Ohio…. Facing continually diminishing poll results in Ohio CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reports the Clinton team is essentially ceding the state to save resources. Michigan could be the next to drop. Additionally, Team Clinton are relying almost exclusively on Philadelphia, and to a lesser extent Pittsburgh, to fend off a similar situation in Pennsylvania. Donald Trump’s economic message and outlined ‘America-First’ policy agenda is most effective in the states where Clinton/Bush/Obama… and now candidate Clinton, policies have been the most disastrous for the middle class workers.

    In House of Representatives v. Burwell, the House challenged the legality of subsidies the Obama administration paid to insurers. Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled that the House as an institution had standing, and that the payments were made without an appropriation. Currently, the case is on appeal to the D.C. Circuit. While the litigation has had an unexpected success in the courts, its origin was rocky. As I discuss in Chapter 23 of Unraveled, one of the most difficult aspects the case was finding an attorney to take it–or more precisely, an attorney whose law firm would allow him keep the...

    Jose Fernandez -the NL Rookie of the Year in 2013 - came to the United States by boat as a 15-year-old Cuban refugee in 2008. Along the way, he rescued his mother, who had fallen overboard. However, his beloved grandmother, who Fernandez calls a “baseball freak,” was left behind.“She’s the love of my life... my everything,” Fernandez said. The day before winning the Rookie of the Year Award, a shocked Fernandez was reunited with his grandmother in Florida with help from Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria.
