John Walsh: Real Race or Simply Manufactured Buzz in Montana?

John Walsh: Real Race or Simply Manufactured Buzz in Montana? | Political Consulting . . . all things political | Scoop.it

Two different memos appeared from Democratic pollsters insisting the Montana Senate race has closed and appointed Sen. John Walsh has a chance.

 

One memo, by North Carolina-based Public Policy Polling, meets existing standards of transparency and while I have issues with the firm’s conclusions, I was happy with the way the data were presented.

 

The other memo, by widely respected, Colorado-based Harstad Strategic Research, was dreadful and little more than spin. It fails to meet the minimum standards of disclosure about polls, and devoted more time to promoting the firm’s candidate, appointed Sen. John Walsh, and vilifying Republicans (and the media), than discussing data.

Intelligence Officials Present Evidence for How Malaysian Flight MH17 Was Shot Down

Intelligence Officials Present Evidence for How Malaysian Flight MH17 Was Shot Down | Political Consulting . . . all things political | Scoop.it
Senior U.S. intelligence officials presented evidence today that they say makes a “solid case” as to why the U.S. believes a Russian made SA-11 missile fired from separatist-held eastern Ukraine shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 last week. While the leading theory is that Russian separatists brought down the plane, the U.S. intelligence community still cannot determine who pulled the trigger or why. The officials pointed the finger at Russia for having “created the conditions” behind the shoot-down and labeled as “not plausible” new Russian claims that the plane may have been brought down by a Ukrainian fighter jet.  …

‘We Shot Down MH17,’ Says Pro-Russian Soldier

A pro-Russian militant has admitted his unit shot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, Italian Newspaper Corriere della Sera has reported. The interview confirms pro-Russian forces mistook the passenger plane for a military one and were told to prepare to engage pro-Ukraine soldiers on the ground.

 

“‘We’ve just shot down one of the Kiev Fascists’ planes’, they told us, warning us to take care because at least some of the crew had reportedly baled out,” the source told Corriere della Sera, at the Torez railway station, at which the bodies of the plane crash victims were held before departing for Khakiv, Ukraine. 

Ken Feltman's insight:

There will be many more articles like this, some accurate, many fabricated. This will make getting to the whole truth nearly impossible.

U.S. flight ban could be Hamas' biggest success in latest clash with Israel | WashingtonExaminer.com

U.S. flight ban could be Hamas' biggest success in latest clash with Israel | WashingtonExaminer.com | Political Consulting . . . all things political | Scoop.it
The Federal Aviation Administration on Tuesday barred U.S. airliners from traveling to and from Israel for at least 24 hours, in the wake of now-confirmed reports saying a rocket landed near Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport, the country's only international airport.
Several airlines already had suspended operations or diverted flights.
The ban comes less than a week after a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was shot down over Ukraine. For Hamas, it could be the biggest break the Islamist group has had since the most recent fighting started -- potentially increasing Israeli's physical and psychological isolation from the rest of the world. The airport handles about 14 million travelers a year.
