Polar bears traced to one brown bear

August 1, 2011 by legitgov

Polar bears traced to one brown bear 31 Jul 2011 All polar bears alive today are descended from a single female brown bear who most likely hailed not from Alaska - as widely presumed - but from Ireland, scientists said. The discovery, reported online in the journal Current Biology, suggests that polar bears and various species of brown bears probably encountered each other many times over the last 100,000 years or so as climate change forced them into each others' territory. On some occasions, those meetings produced hybrid offspring whose genetic signature lives on in polar bears today.

House liberals urge 14th-Amendment fix 31 Jul 2011 A growing number of House Democrats is urging President Obama to abandon his dealings with Republicans and hike the debt ceiling unilaterally. At a press conference scheduled for Monday morning, members of the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus will call on Obama to sidestep Congress and hike the debt limit by invoking the 14th Amendment - an option the president has so far rejected. Their slogan is, "No Cuts, No Caps, Just Raise."

Black Caucus urges Obama to use 14th Amendment debt fix 30 Jul 2011 The Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) urged President Obama on Saturday to sidestep Congress and hike the nation's $14.3 trillion debt limit on his own. In a letter to the president, the lawmakers argue that he has "both the authority and a moral obligation" to invoke the Constitution's 14th Amendment "to avoid an economic catastrophe of historic proportions." The lawmakers join a growing chorus of Democrats – including Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Caucus Chairman John Larson (Conn.) – who have called on Obama to invoke the Constitution as a last resort to prevent a government default.

Harry Reid signs off on possible debt-ceiling deal 31 Jul 2011 Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has given tentative approval to a potential deal that would raise the nation's debt limit while cutting spending, with time running out for Congress to act before the nation loses its ability to borrow money to pay its bills.

July 31, 2011 by legitgov

Obama's base: We've been “thrown under the bus” 31 Jul 2011 Even without a debt-limit deal completed, liberal lawmakers and activist groups are already lining up against the outlines of the agreement, saying President Obama and congressional Democrats are risking Social Security while squandering a chance to force tax increases. "Today we, and everyone we have worked to speak for and fight for, were thrown under the bus," Rep. Raul Grijalva, an Arizona Democrat who is co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said Sunday as top senators began to describe the deal they are trying to strike with Mr. Obama.

Libyan rebel commander killed by allied militia

Libyan rebel commander killed by allied militia 30 Jul 2011 Libyan 'rebels' say the gunmen who shot dead their military chief were militiamen allied in their struggle to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi, raising questions about divisions and lawlessness within rebel ranks. The assassination of Abdel Fattah Younes, apparently by his own side, has hurt the opposition just as it was winning broader international recognition and launching an offensive against Gaddafi's forces in the Western Mountains. After 24 hours of confusion, rebel minister Ali Tarhouni said Younes had been killed by fighters who were sent to fetch him from the front and his bullet-riddled and partially burned body was found at a ranch near the rebel capital of Benghazi.

Liberal Democratic leader says won't back US debt deal 31 Jul 2011 Representative Raul Grijalva, who heads a group of liberal Democrats in the House of Representatives, said on Sunday that he would not back an emerging debt-ceiling deal surrender crafted by Republican and DemocRATic leaders. "This deal trades peoples' livelihoods for the votes of a few unappeasable right-wing radicals, and I will not support it," Grijalva said in a statement. Grijalva heads the 74-member Congressional Progressive Caucus. [Exactly! Screw you, Obama, and your Wall Street/GOP overlords, six ways to Sunday! Invoke the 14th Amendment and be done with it! MSNBC interview (no linki) with Kathy Hochul, D-NY, in a heavily *Republican* district people were asking why the wealthy did not pay their fair share, and that they DID NOT want Medicare or Social Security touched. (Hopefully, they don't want Medicaid touched, either.) This was a GOP district/phone town hall w. 6,000 callers on a Saturday afternoon! Obama, you f*cked us on the public option, the Bush (now Bush/Obusha) tax cuts for the wealthy - not to mention the Patriot Act, Guantanamo Bay, Bagram -- and a thousand other lies, obfuscations and betrayals. --Lori Price]

Financial leaders prepare for possible government default

July 31, 2011 by legitgov

Financial leaders prepare for possible government default 31 Jul 2011 As Republicans and Democrats squabble in Washington, D.C., over raising the nation's debt limit, financial leaders in MetroWest are working through what could happen if the country defaults on its financial obligations. If the debt ceiling isn't raised by Aug. 2, the deadline set by the U.S. Treasury to ensure the country doesn't default on its debt, the most immediate effect would likely be on seniors. Many of them not only depend on the government for Social Security checks but also have their retirement funds invested. [You can be *sure* that Blackwater -- and every other mercenary firm and terrorist group on the US payroll -- will get their money. If Xe gets its money before senior citizens, there should be riots.]

July 31, 2011 by legitgov

US House rejects Democrats' debt plan 30 Jul 2011 The US House of Representatives has rejected 'Democratic' Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's plan to avert a US default on its debt by a vote of 246-173.

The plan aims for about $3 trillion in spending cuts over 10 years. Reid's proposal, on the other hand, would cut $2.7 trillion in spending... It would not increase taxes and the debt ceiling hike would be extended.

Decontamination spray gel tested at Japan school 30 Jul 2011 A Hawaii company is spraying its light-blue decontamination gel onto surfaces of a small kindergarten in Fukushima, Japan, where children currently stay inside all day to avoid dangerous nuclear pollution. If this weekend's decontamination of Asahimachi Baptist Church and School is successful and more effective than the traditional soap and water scrub downs, Honolulu-based CBI Polymers hopes to expand use of their product, called DeconGel, to many other hot spots affected by radiation leaked from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

Arctic scientist who exposed climate threat to polar bear is suspended

Arctic scientist who exposed climate threat to polar bear is suspended --US government conducts 'integrity inquiry' on federal biologist amid lobbying by oil firms for Arctic permits 28 Jul 2011 It was seen as one of the most distressing effects of climate change ever recorded: polar bears dying of exhaustion after being stranded between melting patches of Arctic sea ice. But now the government scientist who first warned of the threat to polar bears in a warming Arctic has been suspended and his work put under official investigation for possible scientific misconduct. Charles Monnett, a wildlife biologist, oversaw much of the scientific work for the government agency that has been examining drilling in the Arctic. Some question why Monnett, employed by the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement, has been suspended at this moment. The Obama administration has been accused of hounding the scientist so it can open up the fragile region to drilling by Shell and other big oil companies.

Senate delays key debt vote until later on Sunday 30 Jul 2011 Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Saturday delayed a test vote on the 'Democratic' debt limit increase plan until 1 p.m. EDT Sunday to give negotiators more time to work out a deal. In brief remarks on the Senate floor, Reid, a Democrat, said that negotiations between congressional leaders and the Obama administration were ongoing, but that there was "still a distance to go" before a deal might be reached. The Senate had been scheduled to take a 1 a.m. EDT test vote on Sunday on the Democratic debt limit plan that Republicans said they opposed and could have blocked. [Cowardly, DemocRATic sycophants -- and closeted GOP troll Barack Obama -- are trying to figure out how much more they can give to Wall Street/the GOP.]

The newspaper claimed that Mr Blair, who was instrumental in the drive to war alongside the then-US President [sic] George Bush, will reportedly be held to account in four key areas, including 'the failure to tell the British public about his "secret pledge" with President Bush to go to war.'
