Though Defiant, Senator Accused of Plagiarism Admits Errors 06 Nov 2013 Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky acknowledged Tuesday that "mistakes" in his office had caused unattributed writing by others to appear in his own work and announced that he was instituting safeguards to prevent such breaches from happening again...Facing a cascading series of accusations that he used plagiarized material in speeches, an opinion article and a book, he said the lapses were the result of his newfound status as a freshman senator in high demand, and the overwhelming workload that has brought with it for him and his staff. Mr. Paul's handling of the disclosures was being watched by his Senate colleagues and by strategists and potential donors to a 2016 national run.

Hagel says US will continue to lead but admits: 'We must listen more' 05 Nov 2013 US defense secretary Chuck Hagel on Tuesday presented an austere vision of American global leadership [imperialism] in the 21st century, conceding that "imperfect outcomes may be the best we can expect" for terrorism [that it conducts] and other pressing international challenges [stealing others' resources]. In a speech delivered to the Center for Strategic and International Studies that was tinged with ambivalence, Hagel pledged that the US would continue to embrace its role as a global superpower, rejecting both an "inward" turn among US politicians and a "hubris" that Hagel, a Vietnam veteran, called an "insidious disease."

Obama administration knew insurance companies would drop millions of customers 05 Nov 2013 The US HealthCare.gov insurance exchange was taken down overnight on Saturday for "extended maintenance," as the web site for the Affordable Care Act continues to be plagued by outages and other technical problems. For much of the weekend, applications, enrollment tools and the "data hub" were not available to people seeking to view plans and enroll in what is known as Obamacare...Emerging details of the health care legislation are demonstrating on a daily basis the pro-corporate character of the Obama administration's signature "reform." In particular, Barack Obama's pledge, "If you like your health plan, you can keep it," is being exposed as a fraud as millions of consumers who buy their insurance coverage on the individual market continue to receive cancellation letters from their current insurers because their existing policies do not meet standards mandated by the law.

AG Holder: 9/11 plotters could have been on death row by now [Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld on death row? Really? Sweet!] 04 Nov 2013 U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Monday that accused Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four alleged co-conspirators would already have been convicted and set for execution if they had been tried in civilian courts as Holder wanted in 2009. At a news conference about corporate fraud, Holder was asked if he stood by his decision to try the men in federal court in New York, a plan the Obama administration reversed in the face of opposition from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and lawmakers in Washington. "The opposition was largely political in nature, and I think this is an example of what happens when politics gets into matters that ought to be simply decided by lawyers and national security experts," said Holder, the chief U.S. law enforcement officer.

U.S. gay-rights bill clears Senate Republican hurdle; Boehner opposes measure 04 Nov 2013 A White House-backed bill to ban workplace discrimination against gays [the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2013] narrowly cleared a Republican procedural roadblock in the U.S. Senate on Monday with the support of a handful of Republicans, just hours after the party's top lawmaker declared his opposition.

CIA made doctors torture suspected terrorists after 9/11, taskforce finds

November 5, 2013 by legitgov

CIA made doctors torture suspected terrorists after 9/11, taskforce finds --Doctors were asked to torture prisoners for intelligence gathering, and unethical practices continue, review concludes 03 Nov 2013 Doctors and psychologists working for the US military violated the ethical codes of their profession under instruction from the defence department and the CIA to become involved in the torture and degrading treatment of suspected terrorists, an investigation has concluded. The report of the Taskforce on Preserving Medical Professionalism in National Security Detention Centres concludes that after 9/11, health professionals working with the military and intelligence services "designed and participated in cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment and torture of detainees". Medical professionals were in effect told that their ethical mantra "first do no harm" did not apply, because they were not treating people who were ill. The report lays blame primarily on the defence department (DoD) and the CIA, which required their healthcare staff to put aside any scruples in the interests of intelligence gathering and security practices that caused severe harm to detainees, from waterboarding to sleep deprivation and force-feeding.

Allegedly, the gunman was with the others near the Apple store -- then started shooting. There was 'some sort of briefing,' (?) before the shooting began. --Multiple shots fired, active shooter in Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus, New Jersey: Bergen County Chief of Staff --Bergen County SWAT team deployed --Multiple shots heard inside Garden State Plaza Mall --Allegedly one shooter was on scene --NJ State Police: Gunman was firing at security cameras at Garden State Plaza Mall --FBI arrived on scene.

Terry McAuliffe Leads in Final Virginia Governor Polls

November 5, 2013 by legitgov

Terry McAuliffe Leads in Final Virginia Governor Polls [Yeah, but the GOP will likely steal it via its massive voter purge, so no matter.] 04 Nov 2013 On the eve of Virginia's election for governor, a handful of new surveys conducted over the weekend confirm the result shown by every public poll since July: Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe appears poised to defeat Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. If the polls prove to be collectively accurate, the only uncertainty appears to be the size of McAuliffe's margin. A final poll from Quinnipiac University, conducted over the past week and released Monday, shows McAuliffe leading Cuccinelli by 6 percentage points, 46 percent to 40 percent, with libertarian Paul Sarvis at 8 percent. Similarly, a final automated telephone poll from the Democratic-affiliated firm Public Policy Polling (PPP), gives McAuliffe a 7-point lead (50 to 43 percent) but shows Sarvis winning just 4 percent of the vote.

More than 1,300 spent fuel assemblies and more than 200 fresh ones, including some containing plutonium-infused mixed-oxide fuel, remain in the pool.
