UPDATE I: Search Continues for Missing Toddler.

UPDATE II: Authorities call off search for missing 2-year-old girl in Trumbull County.

Saturday morning just after 10,  Trumbull County Sheriff deputies told FOX 8 they have called off their search for the missing toddler..

UPDATE III: Great grandmother, who authorities say has temporary custody of the little girl.

Altiere says the search is still on for the child who was last seen at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the State Route 45 home of her great grandmother, who authorities say has temporary custody of the little girl.

The Sheriff says he is talking with the great grandparents inside the church and that they have been very cooperative.

Altiere says that Rainn’s Mother, Brandi Bennett was out with a friend at the time of the disappearance.

That differs with what Bennett, told 21 News  Friday night when she said she was at work and her grandmother was watching her three children. The great grandmother was upstairs doing the dishes. She called for the children to come up for dinner but, Rainn was nowhere to be found.

Bennett says her two sons, ages 3 and 4, said that Rainn had gone upstairs but, the grandmother never saw her.

“We can’t find her anywhere. We looked everywhere, in the house, outside and I just hope that if anyone finds her they please call us as soon as possible because she is two years-old and she’s little and she’s out there all alone,” said Bennett.

More than half a dozen cruisers from the Sheriff’s Department were at the great grandparents home for most of the morning.  Some of the cruisers left the house shortly after 9:30 a.m.

C-130 Crashes in Afghanistan; 6 U.S. Service Members Dead



As reported at NBC News, a C-130 transport plane crashed while taking off in Afghanistan killing 13 people abord the plane, including 6 American service men. The terrible incident took place shortly after midnight local time (3:19 p.m. ET) at Jalalabad airfield. The Taliban has claimed that they shot the plane out of the sky; however, U.S. Air Force Maj. Tony Wickman, spokesman for the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing dismissed the claim, saying that “it is with high confidence that we can say it does not appear that enemy fire was involved.” Well, it didn’t just crash on its own … what happened?

Six American service members were among 13 people killed early Friday when a U.S. C-130 transport plane crashed while taking off in Afghanistan, a U.S. military official said.

The incident occurred shortly after midnight local time (3:19 p.m. ET) at Jalalabad airfield, coalition spokesman U.S. Army Col. Brian Tribus said.

Six of the dead were U.S. service members that were the crew of the aircraft. The other victims were five civilian contractors, who were passengers, and two Afghan civilians who were killed on the ground, Tribus said.

U.S. Air Force Maj. Tony Wickman, spokesman for the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing, told The Associated Press the the Super Hercules aircraft crashed “shortly after take-off wholly within the airfield.”

The civilian contractors were working with “Resolute Support,” the NATO-led mission to train and advise Afghan security forces. It follows the military mission in Afghanistan after combat operations ended at the end of 2014.

A cause for the crash has not been determined.

Oregon Shooting: 10 Dead Including Gunman at Umpqua Community College (Update: Gunman ID’d as Chris Harper Mercer)


Following the mass shooting at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College, 10 people are dead, including the gunman. According to accounts of the mass shooting, the gunman specifically targeted individuals who were Christians. As reported at CNN, the gunman asked whether individuals were Christians stating, “Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second. And then he shot and killed them.” The shooter has been identified as 26 year old Chris Harper Mercer. The gunman was killed in a gun battle with police after officers responded to the scene at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg just before 10:40 AM.

Ten people were killed when a gunman opened fire at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College on Thursday, forcing the nation to face yet another mass shooting.

Seven other people were injured, and the shooter is dead, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin told reporters. Earlier estimates had put the number of people hurt much higher.

Multiple law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation identified the gunman as 26-year-old Chris Harper Mercer. Investigators have interviewed members of his family and friends, they said.

“I will not name the shooter,” Hanlin said. “I will not give him the credit he probably sought.”

Authorities credited a quick response by law enforcement for keeping the death toll from climbing higher.

A law enforcement official said the shooter had body armor with him and was heavily armed, with a large amount of ammunition — enough for a prolonged gunfight.

Hanlin said tactical teams and bomb squads had cleared the buildings on campus and were working to clear hundreds of vehicles parked on campus.

UPDATE I: Shooter asks students their religion.

The shooter at Umpqua Community College on Thursday asked people to state their religion and then started firing, one student said.

Kortney Moore, an 18-year-old, told the News Review she was sitting in her writing class when a bullet blasted through the window. She saw her teacher shot in the head then noticed that the shooter was in the classroom.

Moore said the shooter told people to get on the ground. He then asked people to stand up and state their religion but started firing anywhere. She was on the ground next to people who’d been shot.

UPDATE II: Umpqua Gunman Chris Harper Mercer — What We Know.

Former acquaintances and social-media postings paint a picture of 26-year-old Christopher Harper Mercer — who was killed in a firefight with police at Umpqua Community College — as a withdrawn young man who spent a lot of time on the Internet.

Public records show that one person of that name was born in Los Angeles County in 1989. Police declined to confirm the shooter’s identity late Thursday, in an attempt to not “glorify” the actions of the gunman behind a rampage that left 10 dead and seven others wounded.

Investigators said it was too soon to identify a motive, though Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin told NBC’s TODAY he wasn’t aware of any “specific red flags” for the shooter.

“He is a local resident and I know personally I haven’t heard of any warning signs coming from this person,” Hanlon said.

A MySpace page that appeared to be linked to the shooter featured Mercer holding what appeared to be a rifle while several other postings were sympathetic to the Irish Republican Army and featured masked gunmen and logos.

Barack Obama & MSM Wrong Again on Russia: Obama to Romney During Presidential Debate … The Cold War Is Over


So who remembers this exchange between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney during the 2012 Presidential debates?

FLASHBACK … During the debate Obama mocked Romney in a condescending tone, that it was just a few months ago when Romney was asked was was the United States greatest Geo-political threat, Romney said Russia. Obama then responded with the wise-ass comment, “the 1980′s are now calling and asking for their foreign policy back”. Barack Obama stated that the Cold War was over between Russia and the United States. REALLY? The situation between Putin and Obama these days is little very Cold War’ish, isn’t it? Who wants to now admit that Romney was 100% correct and Obama is just a fool looking to just make ignorant, juvenile sound bytes? C’mon LIBS, we are all waiting for the apology.

Hmm, so I wonder what Obama has to say for himself now about Russia? As Obama and Putin are in a pissing contest over Russian planes bombing targets in Syria. Russia and Putin are vehemently defending the Syrian airstrikes and denies targeting U.S. backed rebels as Obama claims just the opposite.

How could a President be so wrong and ignorant on every issue and still get elected by We the People. There are many people to blame for this but ultimately the blame lays at the hands of the America people. Maybe you will pay the hell attention in 2016 before this country is ruined for all times.

215 More Hillary Clinton Emails, Now More than 400, Marked Classified In Latest State Department Email Dump



The State Department conducted another Hillary Clinton email document dump and low and behold, even more emails marked classified have turned up. According to the Politico, the number of emails now considered classified total more than 400, with three of the 215 newly classified documents marked as SECRET,  the middle tier of the national security classification system. But I thought Hillary said she had done nothing wrong? With all of this, how on Earth is this woman still a viable candidate to be President of the United States?

Hillary Clinton3

Nothing here folks, I’s a Clinton, what did you expect?

The controversy over Hillary Clinton’s use of personal email while she was secretary of state is showing no signs of easing, as the number of messages now deemed classified doubled with the State Department’s latest release and as more details emerged about the potential vulnerability of her account.

The number of emails now considered classified total more than 400, with three of the 215 newly classified documents marked as SECRET — the middle tier of the national security classification system. While Clinton has maintained that she never received or forwarded messages that were marked classified at the time, critics have argued that the use of a private email account and server put her in a precarious position when dealing with sensitive materials.

In another blow to the Clinton campaign’s “nothing to see here” narrative, the latest release shows that hackers targeted her personal email at least five times in August 2011, as part of a widespread speeding ticket hoax. It’s not clear if Clinton ever clicked on what appeared to be virus-laden attachments that security experts say seem to have originated in Russia. Clinton and her surrogates have argued there is no evidence her “home brew” email system was ever compromised.

More from Hot Air, its only a matter of time before the State Department distances itself from Clinton, but the rest of the Obama administration. It will be interesting to see what the White House does once and if Joe Biden enters the presidential race. Hillary will have bus tire marks on her pant suit.

State’s action in classifying this data is rather telling. Other e-mails have been classified above that level by demand from intelligence agencies and the FBI, but State has pushed back against those decisions on Hillary’s behalf. That has allowed Hillary’s defenders to try to muddy the waters by talking about overclassification as the real problem in this scandal, rather than Hillary’s use of an unsecured communications system to send and receive sensitive data relating to national security — including satellite-derived intel on North Korea’s nukes, which no one doubts should be highly classified. The decision by State to classify these as SECRET undermines that argument significantly.

Plus, now we find out that extremely sensitive diplomatic data on the Iranian nuclear negotiations may as well have been on Hotmail. I’m sure that will bolster trust among our allies about our ability to protect discussions held in confidence with our diplomatic personnel.

Emails Show Russia-linked Hackers Tried 5 Times to Break into Hillary Clinton’s Private Server



EMAIL-GATE CONTINUES TO GET WORSE FOR HILLARY CLINTON …  The AP is reporting that Russian linked hackers tried at least 5 times to break into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. It turns out that the hackers knew Hillary Clinton was using a private email account that they tried a phishing attempt on her private email in the form of a phony speeding ticket. Unbelievable, this is what happens when you have a private email account with no security measures. Had these emails been on a government server, it would all but be assured that they would have never gotten through cyber security.

Hillary Clinton Email_phising

Russia-linked hackers tried at least five times to pry into Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private email account while she was US secretary of state, emails released Wednesday show.

It is unclear, however, if she clicked on any attachment and exposed her account.

Clinton received the infected emails, disguised as speeding tickets, over four hours early on the morning of August 3, 2011.

The emails instructed recipients to print the attached tickets, which would have allowed hackers to take control of their computers.

Security researchers who analyzed the malicious software in September 2011 said that infected computers would transmit information from victims to at least three server computers overseas, including one in Russia.

But the phishing attempts highlight the risk of Clinton’s unsecure email being pried open by foreign intelligence agencies, even if others also received the virus concealed as a speeding ticket from Chatham, New York. The email misspelled the name of the city, came from a supposed New York City government account and contained a “Ticket.zip” file that would have been a red flag.

Most commercial antivirus software at the time would have detected the software, identified it as dangerous and prevented users from infecting themselves. It was unclear if the State Department’s network security would have flagged the infected message, or what precautions were in place protecting Clinton’s server in the basement of her home in Chappaqua.

Putin & Russia Launches Airstrikes in northern Syria Against ISIS (Update: Looks Like Russia Attacking Rebel Alliance, Not ISIS)



According to news reports,  Vladimir Putin and the Russians are launching airstrikes in Northern Syria against ISIS. As per accounts the Russians demanded that the US keep their war planes out. Seriously, is Obama going to show his true colors and cower to Putin? Could Barack Obama be any more of a failure? The dude is Jimmy Carter on steroids. Also, how sad is it that Putin has a plan to defeat ISIS and Obama does not.

This is what happens when you have an apologist as a leader and one that you even wonder if he even likes America. And we are not talking about Putin.


What the caption should read from Putin is, I have tanks, helicopters, planes and balls … your move”

Russian warplanes have begun bombarding Syrian opposition targets in the war torn nation’s north, working on behalf of dictator Bashar al Assad, according to a senior military official.

The official said airstrikes targeted fighters in the vicinity of Homs, located roughly 60 miles east of a Russian naval facility in Tartus, and were carried out by a “couple” of Russian bombers. It was not clear if the strikes targeted ISIS, Al Qaeda or other forces opposed to Assad, who Moscow is aiding.  According to a Twitter handle belonging to the Syrian government, the Russian strikes were initiated at the request of Assad.

The development came after Pentagon officials brushed aside an official request from Russia to clear air space over northern Syria, where Moscow intends to conduct airstrikes against ISIS on behalf of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, according to sources who spoke to Fox News.

The request was made by a Russian three-star general who spoke with U.S. officials at the American embassy in Baghdad, sources said. The general, who was not identified, used the word “please” when delivering the verbal request, known as a “demarche,” according to the written transcript of the exchange.

ABC News: US Confirms Russian Airstrikes in Syria.

A U.S. official confirmed that Russian military aircraft conducted airstrikes today in the vicinity of the city of Homs, Syria. The Russians gave the U.S. only an hour’s advance notification that the airstrikes were about to occur through a message conveyed to the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, a U.S. official said.

The official did not have details on what types of Russian aircraft conducted the airstrike in the vicinity of Homs or what the Russians were targeting. The Russian Defense Ministry has so far not confirmed any airstrikes in Syria by Russian military aircraft.

However, the U.S. official noted that there is no major ISIS presence in Homs, which is located in western Syria. Over the past three weeks, Russia has moved 32 fighter and bomber aircraft to the airport in Latakia, a city on the Mediterranean. That airport been developed by Russia into a military operations hub, according to U.S. officials.

“There doesn’t seem to be any operational effect on ISIL where they are flying,” said the official, who used the acronym used by the U.S. government to describe ISIS.

UPDATE I: Russia ‘launches air strikes again’, targeting rebel alliance in Syria.

Russian jets bomb rebel positions in Syria including rural areas near the north-western town of Jisr al-Shughour, a day after launching air strikes.

Despite reports to the contrary, Russia’s defence ministry is claiming that a new round of air strikes overnight on Thursday did target Isil and “strictly avoiding populated areas”

News agencies reported that the ministry confirmed that Sukhoi-24M and Sukhoi-25 aircraft flew eight sorties. They hit an ammunition depot near Idlib as well as a three-storey Isil command centre near Hama.

It said a pinpoint strike had destroyed a facility located in the north of Homs aimed at rigging cars with explosives for suicide attacks, Reuters writes.

UPDATE II: Russia vehemently defends Syrian airstrikes and denies targeting U.S. -backed rebels.

Russian officials vehemently defended the country’s airstrike campaign in Syria Thursday, denying reports of civilian deaths and Western accusations that the country was targeting U.S.-backed rebels instead of the Islamic State.

Gennady Zyuganov, a member of parliament and leader of Russia’s Communist party, called the accusations “total rubbish.”

Vasily Likhachov, from Russia’s lower house of parliament, described the claims as“the latest anti-Russian attack” after “the pendulum of public international opinion had swung back in the direction of Russia,” the Interfax news service reported.

The Russian ambassador to France, Alexander Orlov, said Moscow’s intervention came after a year of airstrikes by the U.S. and its partners had failed to dislodge Islamic State extremists in Syria, the Associated Press reported from Paris.

Orlov said the accusations formed part of a “war of disinformation,” saying Russian officials had warned the U.S. “via confidential channels” of where they planned to strike, the AP reported. U.S. officials say they were only given notice Wednesday.

Texas Police Chief Tells Atheist Group Who Demand That He Ban ‘In God We Trust’ Decals from Crusisers



It would appear that Adrian Garcia, head of the Childress Police Department in Childress, Texas, wasn’t willing to comply with a letter from the atheist group, Freedom From Religion Foundation that demanded he ban “In God We Trust” decals from police patrol cars.. The Texas police chief read their letter and raised them a kiss off. He responded to the group by telling them to  “go fly a kite,”   It is about time some one told these trolls off.

I give the police chief a lot of credit, my response would probably have been a bit different and just two words.

Go Fly a Kite

A Texas police chief has officially responded to atheists’ demands that he remove “In God We Trust” decals from patrol vehicles, telling critics to “go fly a kite.”

Adrian Garcia, head of the Childress Police Department in Childress, Texas, apparently wasn’t willing to entertain demands that the nation’s motto — which secular critics claim is an unconstitutional violation of the separation of church and state — be removed from vehicles.

“After carefully reading your letter I must deny your request in the removal of our Nations motto from our patrol units, and ask that you and the Freedom From Religion Foundation go fly a kite,” he wrote in a one sentence response that was posted on the department’s Facebook page.

Ditto to what the Right Wing News opined, “the faces of atheists when a Texas Police Chief told them they should ‘go fly a kite’ ….PRICELESS!”
