    Considering where the plane went down, will we ever really know what happened? Certainly Donbas terrorists aren’t going to allow independent inspectors in.

    President Obama imposes further sanctions on Russia for their continued involvement in helping pro-Russian separatists and continuing to destabilize Ukraine.
    He gets blasted by Putin (and some in American media) for acting recklessly and claims the sanctions will hurt the US more than they’ll hurt Russia.

    Malaysian airlines passenger plane gets shot down over Ukrainian airspace by what seems to have been Pro-Russian ((and probably Russian-backed and funded) separatists…..exactly proving Obama’s point not even 24 hours later.
    Close to 300 feared dead.

    I wonder what Putin and his republican cheer-leaders have to say about this today?

  27. 67 Don
    July 17, 2014 at 1:20 pm

    They will have nothing to say, what can they say. The Republicans constantly lick Putin’s nuts as if it will somehow make President Obama look bad.

    • 68 EricFive
      July 17, 2014 at 1:28 pm

      This GOP love for Putin is based solely on their frantic need to see PBO bested by a white man, any white man. This racist need trumps any patriotism these devils may have at one time possessed.

      That was his scheduled time for the infrastructure speech, but it is likely that he will preface with a statement about #MH17.

      This is a quick response from President Obama and his team, either they know what happended or they are calling for calm. President Obama is usualy measured in his responses to these sort of incidents.

    Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to my Chips and my TOD family. One thing that I am grateful for at this hour is that we have a level fact based President in the Oval Office. He is able to walk and chew gum at the same time.

    Sen. McCain give me know desire to listen to him nor does his friend Ms. Mitchell. Sad that they run to these wells of fear programs to even make the people and the much grief that is on the hearts of relatives of this flight. That is shameful.

    Putin, I have no comments that are even decent enough to come from my mouth and place into this beautiful space that Chips has created here for all of us, so I will leave it there.

    I will continue to send forth prayers of wisdom, facts to be given to POB, and total trusted information from all of the resources that PBO and VPBiden have at their disposal. This is huge and very sad because lives have been taken from our space of life today. We send forth thoughts of comfort to the families.

    I will release my fear and activate my faith that our president will be given the most precise and appropriate information that is possible for him and his National Security Team to get to the very bottom of this terrible tragedy. We will be careful to measure our words as we pray and lift up our president. May wisdom be granted to our president at this time. #TrustBarack.

    I give thanks to our Chips and the entire brilliant contributors who give factual information to keep our TOD family updated which give much calmness to our reactions and emotions. Thank you so much, Chips. I love you for all that you do for us. {{{{{{ TY, TY, Team Chips}}}}}}HZ

    TOD family gently lift up a word of prayer, words of positive outcomes, and careful and precise decisions made by out president. Remember, the talking heads do not know what the president is getting by the minute on this situation. We pray that his team will leave no stone unturned.HZ

    • 92 EricFive
      July 17, 2014 at 1:44 pm

      Sad but true. The U.S. media thinks the country can only rally around GOP presidents. In addition, since rallying around PBO and against Putin will surely improve PBO’s poll numbers (which would lay waste to the gop/msm midterm election strategy), it is very likely U.S. media will absolve Putin of blame or find a way to blame him and PBO equally. Ain’t corporate ownership of our media grand?

        • July 17, 2014 at 1:51 pm

          Don’t think so. I know I’ll drive everyone mad saying this, but I just think the visit to the restaurant should have been canceled under the circumstances, the images are beautiful but probably not appropriate today. But, then again, something horrible happens every day, so maybe I’m fretting over nothing.

          • July 17, 2014 at 1:56 pm

            I understand what you’re saying. The lunch was planned with the woman who had written him a letter and to be featured in his talk. I’m guessing he probably wants to maintain some normalcy until he has something concrete to work with about the crash.

            • July 17, 2014 at 2:01 pm

              That’s fair enough Meta, I know what you mean, and if events were canceled every time something horrific happened on earth, nothing would ever go ahead. I just gulped a bit at the optics of it all.

            Chips I feel the same way as you, but then again I suppose he has his reasons (which we will hopefully find out about in the next 12-24 hrs) for continuing the tour. I saw on Twitter that Dan Pfeiffer tweeted a pic of the restaurant that PBO was planning to visit which I felt at the time was in poor taste given the news of the crash had just emerged.

            • July 17, 2014 at 2:05 pm

              It’s all so difficult Hopefruit, life must go on, and whatever bastards are behind this can’t be allowed govern the day’s agenda, it was just, as I said, I felt uncomfortable with the imagery.

            I think you are fretting over nothing. PBO is damned in certain circles no matter what he does. We will drive ourselves crazy trying to appease them. As PBO taught McCain in 2008, he can multitask. I don’t doubt for a minute PBO will craft a wise and just response to Putin’s latest blunder. Few will remember (and even fewer will care) that PBO had lunch and gave a kid a fist bump.

            • July 17, 2014 at 2:02 pm

              But Eric, I don’t give a shit what his enemies think, it was just, as I said, the optics of today – for me – that I didn’t feel were right in light of the circumstances.

                July 17, 2014 at 2:12 pm

                I don’t have problem with PBO eating lunch and giving a girl a fist bump. This does not mean PBO’s team is not working on the situation, preparing courses of action the U.S. will take in response to Putin. PBO is about to give a speech which will likely answer some of your concerns (assuming his team has compiled the necessary info). That is why I said I think you are fretting over nothing. But of course feel free to fret;)

          Well he apparently knew the plane was down before he visited DE. I think he’s just trying to keep things as normal as possible while getting all the facts of the situation.

          At this point even if he were to stop and sit in the Oval office, the plane is already down and the passengers are all dead. It’s not an ongoing situation like Hurricane Katrina or 911 where there were survivors and aftermath.

      • July 17, 2014 at 2:14 pm

        PBO has the hardest job in the world. This must have been incredibly tough, going out into public, behaving as he would always do, with such a huge weight on his Mind and Heart. God Love him, Light and Love all around him. We all need to keep praying for him, each day! I know we do.

      From the last thread-
      I really am in awe of these media outlets access to “military experts”. Very few have been in combat but they opine various scenarios of missile firings and their points of origin. Of course it had to be a SAM(surface-to-air-missile) but no one has considered that a missile could have been fired from another aircraft…….hmmm?

    What Is The Buk SAM System, Why Is It Important, And Do Ukraine’s Separatists Have One?

    And, you will note that, once again, if you’re going to tweet anything you should realize that ‘the internet’ has a way of never forgetting irrespective of what you think you’ve deleted.

  44. July 17, 2014 at 2:29 pm

    I got an idea? Send 250 minuteman missiles with MERVs with multiple target destinations in Russia?
    That’ll make the t baggers happy.
