September 16, 2011 by legitgov

Mayor Bloomberg predicts riots in the streets if economy doesn't create more jobs 16 Sep 2011 New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg warned Friday there would be riots in the streets if Washington doesn't get serious about generating jobs. "We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs," Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show. "That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here." [We don't?] In Cairo, angry Egyptians took out their frustrations by toppling presidential strongman Hosni Mubarak - and more recently attacking the Israeli embassy. [There had *better* be 'riots in the streets' (btw, where else would they be?!) if the economy doesn't improve!]

NFL wants pat-downs from ankles up at all stadiums --NFL recommended new guidelines before Week 1 of season 15 Sep 2011 The NFL wants all fans patted down from the ankles up this season to improve fan 'safety.'

The stricter physical screening policy impacts the 16.6 million fans expected to attend live regular season NFL games this season.

Judge's ruling on Miranda rights in terrorism case touches off legal debate --Some say ruling sets dangerous precedent that could open door to coerced confessions 16 Sep 2011 A judge's decision Thursday to let prosecutors use a terrorism suspect's incriminating statements -- even though he wasn't read his rights -- has triggered a legal debate. The case involves Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 24, who goes on trial Oct. 11 on charges that he tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day 2009 with a bomb hidden in his underwear. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds ruled Thursday that Abdulmutallab's statement, which he sought to have suppressed, was admissible.

Bush's Toronto appearance cancelled 14 Sep 2011 Next week's appearance by former U.S. president [sic] George W. Bush at an event hosted by a local evangelical Christian university has been cancelled.

On Tuesday, a class valedictorian and professor publicly spoke out against the appearance following the resignation of another staff member. Bush was scheduled to speak Sept. 20 to about 150 people at an invitation-only breakfast hosted by Tyndale University College and Seminary, home to about 1,400 students at two campuses in Toronto's north end.

Outrage spreads over Bush visit 14 Sep 2011 A valedictorian and a professor at Tyndale University College are publicly expressing outrage over an appearance by former U.S. president [sic] George W. Bush at the local Christian school next week. Mark Groleau, valedictorian for Tyndale's graduating class earlier this year, said Tuesday that Bush's visit contradicts the school's beliefs and damages its reputation. "I really question how somebody like George W. Bush could be given a place of honour at a promotional event for a school that stands for peace and justice," said Groleau, who received a master of divinity degree in pastoral studies.

GOP Could Guarantee Obama's Defeat Just by Fiddling With Electoral College

September 16, 2011 by legitgov

The GOP Could Guarantee Obama's Defeat Just by Fiddling With the Electoral College 14 Sep 2011 Pennsylvania Republicans are working on a plan: apportioning its electoral votes by congressional district instead of the current winner-take-all system. Under the new system, a presidential candidate would receive an electoral vote for each congressional district he or she wins, plus two more if he wins the statewide vote count... Republicans control both chambers of the Pennsylvania legislature as well as the governorship, so if the GOP wants to switch over to a congressional-district apportionment system, all the Democrats can really do is whine. As Mother Jones noted today, the same thing could be repeated in other blue states across the country.

Official: US dollars ending up in insurgents' hands --'It's clear to us some of that money is going to the insurgency.' 15 Sep 2011 U.S. government money spent on contracts in Afghanistan is ending up in the hands of Taliban insurgents that American troops have been fighting for nearly a decade, and it is unlikely the flow can be shut off completely, a senior Pentagon official [Army Brig.

The Associated Press reported in August that a special U.S. task force estimated that $360 million in U.S. contracting dollars have been lost to the Taliban, criminals and power brokers with ties to both.

Rick Perry and HPV vaccine-maker have deep financial ties

September 14, 2011 by legitgov

Rick Perry and HPV vaccine-maker have deep financial ties 13 Sep 2011 Rick Perry's  gubernatorial campaigns have received nearly $30,000 from Merck since 2000, most of that before he issued his vaccine mandate, which was overturned by the Texas legislature. In 2007, Perry became the first governor in the country to attempt to make the HPV vaccine mandatory. One of Perry's closest confidantes, his former chief of staff Mike Toomey, was then working as an Austin-based lobbyist for Merck, which was in the midst of a multimillion-dollar campaign to persuade states to make the vaccine mandatory. Toomey has since helped found Make Us Great Again, a pro-Perry super PAC that can accept unlimited donations from corporations and wealthy donors. The group plans to raise as much as $55 million to help Perry compete for the GOP nomination, according to media reports.

Use of Private Contractors Doesn't Save Government Money, Study Finds --Federal government spends about $320 billion a year on contracts for services 13 Sep 2011 Despite a widespread belief [fueled by corporate-owned media propoganda] that contracting out services to the private sector saves the federal government money, a new study suggests just the opposite -- that the government actually pays more when it farms out work. The study found that in 33 of 35 occupations, the government actually paid billions of dollars more to hire contractors than it would have cost government employees to perform comparable services. On average, the study found that contractors charged the federal government more than twice the amount it pays federal workers.

C.I.A. Examining Legality of Work With Police Dept. 14 Sep 2011 The Central Intelligence Agency has opened an internal inquiry into whether its close cooperation with the New York Police Department in the decade since the Sept. 11 attacks has broken any laws prohibiting the agency from collecting intelligence in the United States. The C.I.A. is prohibited from gathering intelligence on American soil, but some have criticized its counterterrorism cooperation with law enforcement services as a de facto domestic spying campaign. The head of the Police Department's intelligence unit, David Cohen, is a former C.I.A. official, and the agency has a senior clandestine officer embedded in the New York police force.
