May 9, 2012 by legitgov

12.6 Billion-Dollar Bailout for Fukushima Operator TEPCO 10 May 2012 Japan is set to nationalize Tokyo Electric Power, the operator of the ravaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, under a ¥1 trillion bailout plan approved Wednesday. The $12.6 billion bailout comes at a time when the government itself is reeling under a debt burden that has mushroomed to more than twice the size of its economy. The government has separately committed ¥2.4 trillion in taxpayer money to meet compensation payments arising from the accident. But estimates of the payments that Tepco might have to pay out have reached many tens of billions of dollars, making further government support likely.

May 9, 2012 by legitgov

Twitter fights request for Occupy protester's data 08 May 2012 Twitter Inc filed a motion in a New York criminal court on Tuesday seeking to quash a subpoena for Tweets and account records associated with Malcolm Harris, a Twitter user who was arrested last fall on the Brooklyn Bridge during an Occupy protest. Prosecutors in Manhattan have sought to build a case around Harris's Tweets by arguing that they show Harris was "well aware of the police instructions, and acted with the intent of obstructing traffic on the bridge," according to court filings. Harris lost a bid to squash the subpoena in April, after a judge ruled that Twitter holds a license to its users' Tweets.

May 9, 2012 by legitgov

Over 1,300 Tubes Damaged at Calif. Nuclear Plant 08 May 2012 More than 1,300 tubes that carry radioactive water inside the San Onofre nuclear plant in Southern California are so damaged that they will be taken out of service, the utility that runs the plant said Tuesday. The figures released by Southern California Edison are the latest disclosure in a probe of equipment problems that have kept the coastal plant sidelined for more than three months. At issue has been the integrity of tubing that snakes through the plant's four steam generators, which were installed in a multimillion-dollar makeover in 2009 and 2010.

May 9, 2012 by legitgov

'Underwear bomber' was working for the CIA [as usual] 08 May 2012 A would-be "underwear bomber" involved in a plot to attack a US-based jet was in fact working as an undercover informer with Saudi intelligence and the CIA, it has emerged. The revelation is the latest twist in an increasingly bizarre story about the disruption of an apparent attempt by al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] to strike at a high-profile American target using a sophisticated device hidden in the clothing of an attacker. The plot, which the White House said on Monday had involved the seizing of an underwear bomb by authorities in the Middle East sometime in the last 10 days, had caused alarm throughout the US.

Bank of America Showdown

Bank of America Showdown (MoveOn.org) 08 May 2012 While Bank of America's CEO and shareholders meet in Charlotte, NC, tomorrow, the 99% is taking to the streets across the nation to protest BofA. As the economy declined, BofA made millions in profits by dodging taxes and foreclosing on homes, which hit communities of color especially hard. Bad publicity is like kryptonite to big corporations—that's why thousands of people are protesting, marching, and raising our voices in solidarity to draw the media's attention to BofA's shameless practices. Nearly 200 communities are standing up to Bank of America this week, and there's one near you. [In Bristol, CT: Rt. 6 North St, Wednesday, May 9, at 5:00 PM.]

House GOP spending bills spare Pentagon, homeland security from cuts --FBI would get budget hike 08 May 2012 Republicans controlling the House are sparing the Pentagon, military veterans and most homeland security programs from the budget knife as action begins on a set of spending bills setting the day-to-day budgets for federal agencies.

DemocRATs spoke glowingly of a $72 billion veterans and military construction measure approved by an Appropriations subpanel by voice vote and also backed a $600 billion-plus measure funding the Pentagon and military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Republicans block Senate proposal to keep student loan rates low 08 May 2012 The political battle over President Obama's plan to keep student loan interest rates from skyrocketing escalated as Senate Republicans [Grade 'A' sociopaths] blocked a Democratic proposal to tax wealthier earners to pay for it. Republicans stopped the effort with a filibuster. Rates for 7 million new undergraduate student loans are set to double to 6.8% on July 1 if Congress fails to act. The vote was 52-45, failing to reach the 60-vote threshold needed to overcome the GOP filibuster.

May 9, 2012 by legitgov

Sen. Richard Lugar loses primary to Richard Mourdock 08 May 2012 Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) lost his primary on Tuesday, becoming the latest Republican to fall victim to a tea party-fueled opponent.

The Associated Press has called the race for Mourdock. His nomination also opens the door a crack to Rep. Joe Donnelly, a Democrat whose chances improve now that he doesn't have to face the more moderate longtime incumbent.

May 9, 2012 by legitgov

North Carolina passes gay marriage ban Amendment One 08 May 2012 North Carolina voters have passed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage today via a statewide ballot measure, according the Associated Press. North Carolina already had a statute banning gay marriage. Amendment One declares that "marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state" - vague language that opponents say could threaten domestic partnership protections for all couples while closing the door to any sort of same-sex unions. Until today, North Carolina was the only state in the South did not have a constitutional ban.

Just as CLG has asserted from the get-go!] 08 May 2012 Last month, U.S. intelligence learned that al-Qaeda's Yemen branch hoped to launch a spectacular attack using a new, nearly undetectable bomb aboard an airliner bound for America, officials say. But the man the terrorists were counting on to carry out the attack was actually working for the CIA and Saudi intelligence, U.S. and Yemeni officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The officials spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the operation. [As CLG posted yesterday: US: CIA thwarts new al-Qaida underwear bomb plot 07 May 2012 The would-be suicide bomber was told to buy a ticket on the airliner of his choosing and decide the timing of the attack. It's not immediately clear what happened to the would-be bomber. [Oh. They 'lost' the 'would-be' bomber? LOL! Well, check with his handlers at Langley! --Turns out, his handlers *were* at Langley! -LRP]

TSA agent spots gun parts hidden in toy animals 08 May 2012 A Transportation Security Administration officer discovered something more than just three stuffed animals inside a carry-on bag going through the conveyor belt of a Rhode Island airport X-ray checkpoint Monday.

According to the TSA, its officers alerted the airport's police, which found the main frame of a .40 caliber firearm in one animal, a firing pin and a magazine carrying two .40 caliber rounds in another animal, and a slide concealed in the third animal.

US secretly releasing Taliban prisoners from Bagram prison 07 May 2012 America has secretly been releasing high-level Taliban prisoners from a top security military prison as part of negotiations with insurgents. Up to 20 prisoners have been released from Bagram prison in the past two years after giving assurances they would give up their struggle and reconcile with the government.

Not the Change Polar Bears Need: President Obama's Polar Bear Extinction Plan

May 8, 2012 by legitgov

Not the Change Polar Bears Need: President Obama's Polar Bear Extinction Plan --President Obama's 'Polar Bear Extinction Plan' has a disturbing history. By Kassie Siegel 07 May 2012 Polar bears are in deep trouble. Without help, more than two-thirds of these amazing animals, including all the polar bears in Alaska, will likely be gone by 2050 -- driven off the planet by diminishing sea ice. So it boggles the mind that the Obama administration recently announced plans to reissue a Bush-era regulation that sharply limits protections for polar bears under the Endangered Species Act. Unless the public speaks out forcefully, the regulation will go into effect -- and that could be the last straw for this magnificent species.

US-led forces intentionally killing Afghan civilians: Former PM 07 May 2012 Former Afghan Prime Minister Ahmad Shah Ahmadzai has accused the US-led forces in Afghanistan of intentionally killing civilians, Press TV reports.

"They are doing this intentionally, unfortunately. While they say they are in favor of human rights, justice, and so on, what they are doing in Afghanistan is completely against human rights and human justice," he added.
