August 25, 2011 by legitgov

US inspecting Virginia nuclear reactor after quake --NRC has not decided whether to hold special inspection 24 Aug 2011 Dominion Resources workers were inspecting the North Anna nuclear power plant in Mineral, Virginia on Wednesday, a day after an earthquake centered near plant knocked both reactors offline, the company said. The company said several aftershocks were felt but had no impact on the plant, 80 miles (129 km) southwest of Washington, which canceled its emergency alert on Wednesday afternoon. Tuesday's 5.8 magnitude earthquake, the largest to hit the U.S. East Coast in 67 years, knocked out power to the nuclear plant which triggered an automatic shutdown.

Leaked Cable: McCain, Lieberman Promised Qaddafi to Help Secure Military Equipment From U.S. 24 Aug 2011 For all the braying by the Senate's top three hawks about how the U.S. wasn't doing enough to oust Libyan dictator Col. Muammar Qaddafi from power, one might be surprised to learn that exactly two years ago, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Joe Lieberman (I-Sociopath-CT) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) were in Tripoli meeting with the erratic leader and giving him assurances that relations between the nations were on the mend. According to a leaked August 2009 U.S. diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks recounting the Senators' junket, the neoconservative Connecticut Senator captured the dynamic of aligning with Qaddafi: Lieberman called Libya an important ally in the war on terrorism, noting that common enemies sometimes make better friends.

Dangerous hurricane Irene threatens Northeast 24 Aug 2011 Powerful Hurricane Irene battered the Bahamas on Wednesday on a track to the North Carolina coast that forecasters say could threaten the densely populated U.S. Northeast, including New York, starting on Sunday. Irene, a major Category 3 storm with winds of 120 miles per hour (195 km per hour), pounded the southeast Bahamian islands with winds, rain and dangerous storm surge. The first hurricane of the storm-filled 2011 Atlantic season is expected to gather power after it leaves the Bahamas on Thursday and race across open warm waters to clip North Carolina's jutting Outer Banks region on Saturday afternoon.

"Our Californian DNS hoster, Dynadot, has received a PATRIOT act production order for information on Julian Assange. It has complied," WikiLeaks Tweeted on Wednesday afternoon.

U.S. invokes Patriot Act as WikiLeaks dumps more data 24 Aug 2011 The U.S. government has reportedly invoked the controversial Patriot Act as a legal basis for demanding data from Internet provider Dynadot about WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

August 25, 2011 by legitgov

Libyan 'Rebels' Reportedly Used Tiny Canadian Surveillance Drone 25 Aug 2011 Libyan rebels US-backed mercenaries have been coordinating their attacks using a Canadian-made, unmanned surveillance aircraft, the drone's manufacturer announced Tuesday. David Kroetsch, the president and chief executive of the manufacturer, Aeryon Labs of Waterloo, Ontario, said in an interview that his company was first approached by a representative of the Libyan Transitional National Council early in June, after members of the group searching the Web saw the company's surveillance aircraft -- essentially a tiny, four-rotor helicopter dangling a pod carrying stabilized-image day- and night-vision cameras. Its base price is $120,000.

With CIA help, NYPD moves covertly in Muslim areas

With CIA help, NYPD moves covertly in Muslim areas --Many operations were built with help from CIA, which is prohibited from spying on Americans but was instrumental in transforming NYPD's intelligence unit 24 Aug 2011 Since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 [inside job], the NYPD has become one of the country's most aggressive domestic intelligence agencies. A months-long investigation by The Associated Press has revealed that the NYPD operates far outside its borders and targets ethnic communities in ways that would run afoul of civil liberties rules if practiced by the federal government. And it does so with unprecedented help from the CIA in a partnership that has blurred the bright line between foreign and domestic spying. Neither the city council, which finances the department, nor the federal government, which contributes hundreds of millions of dollars each year, is told exactly what's going on.

Sharpton's Racket

August 24, 2011 by legitgov

Sharpton's Racket By Harry Siegel 17 Aug 2011 [Al Sharpton's] decision [in 2001] not to back Democrat Mark Green after he beat out Sharpton's then-ally Fernando Ferrer in a runoff for the party's nod was crucial to Michael Bloomberg's surprise win. Sharpton has kept a low profile during the Bloomberg years (a non-aggression pact he now seems to have also reached with Obama) in exchange for public appearances with the mayor and cash funneled through former schools chancellor Joel Klein... Much of his leverage comes from his willingness to leave his party behind. Sharpton has a long history of undermining Democrats and backing Republicans, and his 2004 presidential run was coordinated by self-proclaimed "GOP hitman" Roger Stone, and aimed squarely at then–Democratic favorite Howard Dean... [Sharpton the Sociopath refuses to criticize Barack Obama. However, when Obama campaigned for the Democratic nomination, pretending to be a leftist, Sharpton worked against him 24/7. This dirt-bag insanely landed the 6PM gig on MSNBC (replacing the fired progressive, Cenk Uygur) where he can promote Obusha's Republican policies and make his GE bosses happy. --LRP]

KBR Requests That Losing Rape Claimant Pay Company's Legal Fees

August 24, 2011 by legitgov

KBR Requests That Losing Rape Claimant Pay Company's Legal Fees 23 Aug 2011 The skirmishing has not yet subsided in the high-profile suit brought by Jamie Leigh Jones, the Houston woman who claimed that she was raped while working in Iraq for defense contractor KBR. Jones had sought $145 million in damages against KBR, claiming it condoned a hostile sexual climate in Iraq, but a jury last month rejected her claims. Now, KBR wants Jones to pay for its legal fees and court costs. In its motion seeking to recover more than $2 million in fees, KBR alleged that Jones' rape and hostile work environment claims were fabricated and frivolous. The company has also requested that she cover its court costs of $145,000. [I have a better idea. 'Rebels' and 'insurgents' should go to KBR's HQ and do what they do.]

Strauss-Kahn Accuser's Lies Lead Prosecutors to Drop Charges 22 Aug 2011 Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former International Monetary Fund chief accused of sexually assaulting a hotel maid, shouldn't be tried because his accuser told too many lies about the alleged attack, Manhattan prosecutors said.
