Senate Dems to Try Passing Debt Ceiling Increase

October 8, 2013 by legitgov

Senate Dems to Try Passing Debt Ceiling Increase 07 Oct 2013 Democrats controlling the Senate are planning to try to pass a stand-alone measure to increase the government's borrowing cap, challenging Republicans to a filibuster showdown that could unnerve financial markets as the deadline to a first-ever default on U.S. obligations draws closer. A spokesman said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid could unveil the measure as early as Tuesday, setting the table for a test vote later in the week... The development came as a partial shutdown of the government enters its second week with no end in sight. [No worries, corporate-owned America. Obama will quietly slash Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid - with nary a peep from the lamestream media. After all, the same media 'forgot' to report that the Democrats already surrendered and adopted the GOP budget - in hopes of staving off a government shutdown. --LRP]

October 8, 2013 by legitgov

New Air Force Planes Go Directly to 'Boneyard' 07 Oct 2013 New cargo planes on order for the U.S. Air Force are being delivered straight into storage in the Arizona desert because the military has no use for them, a Dayton Daily News investigation found. A dozen nearly new C-27J Spartans from Ohio and elsewhere have already been taken out of service and shipped to the so-called boneyard at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson. Five more are expected to be built by April 2014, all of which are headed to the boneyard unless another use for them is found. The Air Force has spent $567 million on 21 C-27J aircraft since 2007, according to purchasing officials at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The Air Force almost had to buy more of the planes against its will, the newspaper found.

10,000 walrus come ashore in Alaska as global warming decimates sea ice --Scientists at the National Marine Fisheries Service say that the large numbers of walrus would normally rest and eat on sea ice, but that increasingly no longer exists in late summer. 01 Oct 2013 For the Pacific walrus, global warming is undeniable. An estimated 10,000 walrus have come ashore on Alaska's northwest coast, the National Marine Fisheries Service reported, as the sea ice the animals normally rely on to rest continues to melt at alarming rates. Since 2007, government scientists have tracked numerous large walrus "haulouts" in Alaska and this one began last week.

Report raises fresh concerns about radiation levels in Japanese fish

October 7, 2013 by legitgov

Report raises fresh concerns about radiation levels in Japanese fish 07 Oct 2013 Two and a half years after the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster in Japan, concerns are again being raised about radiation levels in fish caught in the Pacific Ocean. A report by the Vancouver weekly newspaper, The Georgia Straight, suggests at least 800 people worldwide could develop cancer from eating fish caught in Japan's waters - and about half of those cases will be fatal. About 500 of the cancers will occur in Japan, while 75 will be due to Japanese fish exports to other countries, including Canada, the newspaper estimates. It also quotes several nuclear experts who say that estimate is likely conservative and the real toll could be closer to 80,000 cancers.

Devonport Dockyard loss of power 'had nuclear implications' --Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) issued Improvement Notice following number of other incidents 07 Oct 2013 A loss of power at a city dockyard had "potential nuclear implications", a Ministry of Defence (MoD) report said. The 90-minute power-loss, at Devonport in Plymouth, could have been "catastrophic", a nuclear analyst said. Caused by a central nuclear switchboard fault at the yard, it was the most potentially dangerous of 50 "events" recorded in 2012. Power is essential at the dockyard to ensure reactors on the nuclear submarines are kept cool. John Large, an engineer and independent nuclear analyst, said: "The loss of power was a catastrophic event, which is what happened before the Fukushima meltdown."

October 6, 2013 by legitgov

Water spills from Fukushima 6,700 times more radioactive than legal limit 03 Oct 2013 Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant has suffered yet another leak, spilling out 430 liters of contaminated water thousands of times more radioactive than legal limits, its operator said Thursday. Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, said the water which spilled from the storage tanks had radiation readings as high as 200,000 becquerels per liter -- almost 6,700 times higher than the legal limit of 30 becquerels. TEPCO announced Tuesday that four tons of rainwater contaminated with low levels of radiation had leaked during an operation to transfer water between holding tanks, Reuters reported.

Former NYPD sergeant questions sister's killing by police in Washington 05 Oct 2013 Police in Washington could have avoided shooting dead a woman pursued by officers in a car chase that led to the lockdown of the Capitol this week, the driver's sister, former New York police sergeant Valarie Carey, said late on Friday. The family of Miriam Carey, whose one-year-old daughter Erica was in the car with her during the encounter with police on Thursday, has said she suffered from post-partum depression. Law enforcement sources said Carey did not shoot a gun and there was no indication she had one. "I'm more than certain that there was no need for a gun to be used (by police) when there was no gunfire coming from the vehicle," Valarie Carey said. "I don't know how their protocols are in D.C., but I do know how they are in New York City."

Am I the *only one* who doesn't fall for these phony 'al-Qaeda' raids that seem to only transpire when the US government 'needs' a weapon of mass distraction to cover for Wall Street's phony budget battles and miscellaneous false flags? Anas al-Liby was one of the FBI's list of most-wanted. He was captured in eastern Afghanistan in January 2002. --LRP]

"The Democrats have already said they are ready to reopen the government at funding levels the Republicans have set," the president said. He was referring to the acceptance by Democrats in the House of Representatives of a funding level $42 billion lower than the previous Democratic proposal. Obama also hinted that he was willing, as part of future budget talks, to accede to demands from Republicans, speaking on behalf of corporate interests [as always], for changes in his Affordable Care Act, which was passed in 2010 and is slated to become largely operational in January.

Afghanistan: U.S. blocking deal on future security pact 03 Oct 2013 Afghan President Hamid Karzai has dug his heels in, making it clear he's in no rush to sign a Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) with the U.S. to lay out what American troops who remain in the country after the majority of the forces leave next year can and cannot do.

Karzai has now taken a direct role in the negotiations but his national security advisor, Rangin Datfar Spanta, is leading the negotiations for the Afghan government, and the eventual deal will have to be approved by the Loya Jirga (Grand Assembly), Faizi told CBS News.

US indicts 13 suspected members of Anonymous hacking collective 03 Oct 2013 The United States brought criminal charges against 13 suspected members of the hacking group Anonymous on Thursday for allegedly attacking government, credit card and lobbying websites in a campaign in support of internet file-sharing.

The loose-knit international group known as Anonymous has been in frequent battle with US authorities, not only over file-sharing but also other ideological causes such as the willingness of financial institutions to process donations for the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.

NRA to Tepco: Control massive amount of radioactive water gushing from Fukushima No. 1 04 Oct 2013 The Nuclear Regulation Authority on Friday ordered Tokyo Electric Power Co. to bring under control the massive amount of radioactive water gushing from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear complex, including by boosting worker numbers on-site.

With concerns growing over the toxic water problem at Fukushima No. 1, Ikeda also urged Tepco to report whether it can ensure the safety of its Kashiwazaki-Kariwa atomic plant in Niigata Prefecture, two of whose seven reactors the utility seeks to restart.
