'Someone's coming to get me': Terrified phone-hacking whistleblower feared for his life before he was found dead --Police probing former showbiz reporter's 'suicide' 19 Jul 2011 The man who launched the entire phone hacking scandal... believed someone was out to get him, a friend has revealed.

Last night a friend and neighbour claimed Mr Hoare, 47, had become increasingly reclusive and 'paranoid' in recent weeks. 'He would talk about someone from the Government coming to get him,' he said. 'He'd say to me, "If anyone comes by, don't say I'm in".

Stress-related condition 'incapacitates' Bachmann; heavy pill use alleged 19 Jul 2011 Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) frequently suffers from stress-induced medical episodes that she has characterized as severe headaches. These episodes, say witnesses, occur once a week on average and can "incapacitate" her for days at time. On at least three occasions, Bachmann has landed in the hospital as a result... Sources who spoke to The Daily Caller said they did so because they are terrified about the impact the condition could have on Bachmann's performance if she actually became president. "It's a careful choice of words I used: 'incapacitated,'" the adviser says.

Murdochs in the dock 19 Jul 2011 The phone hacking scandal that has claimed the jobs of Britain's two most high-profile police officers, caused the closure of one of the country's most famous newspapers, prompted 10 arrests so far and led to calls for the resignation of the Prime Minister reaches a critical juncture today with a moment of high drama to rival anything that the British media has produced before... The founder and the appointed heir to the world's most famous media empire will take centre stage in the next act of the hacking saga. Rupert and James Murdoch will sit before a panel of MPs and face questions that the company over which they preside was involved in phone hacking on an "industrial scale", made illegal payments to police officers and sought to corrupt the democratic process by "owning" politicians.

Cain: I'd Attack Iran if It 'Messes with Israel' 18 Jul 2011 Republican presidential candidate [sociopath] Herman Cain says he would attack Iran to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons or to respond to aggression against Israel. Asked if he agreed with former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton's contention that the "only realistic alternative... is to use force preemptively against Iran's nuclear weapons [sic] program" since diplomacy has failed, Mr. Cain said he did, with one caveat. "There would be some other pieces of information I would need before I gave that order, but I'm saying that would be Option B," Mr. Cain said during an interview with editors and reporters at The Washington Times.

July 18, 2011 by legitgov

Heat wave hardest on nation's poorest communities 18 Jul 2011 With much of the nation in the grip of a broiling heat wave, few people are hit as hard as the poor, and few places are poorer than the ramshackle communities along the Texas-Mexico border known as "colonias." The misery was widespread Monday, with the worst conditions blanketing a broad band from Texas to Minnesota and Dakotas. Seventeen states issued heat watches, warnings or advisories. And the heat index easily surpassed 100 degrees in many places: 126 in Newton, Iowa; 120 in Mitchell, S.D.; and 119 in Madison, Minn... In towns large and small, the withering heat was cruelest to those who could not afford air conditioning.

Stop Power Plants from Shredding Endangered Fish

July 17, 2011 by legitgov

Stop Power Plants from Shredding Endangered Fish (National Wildlife Federation Action Fund) 15 Jul 2011 Endangered shortnose sturgeon swim in the waters of the Hudson River, surrounded by the constant threat of being sucked into a power plants' water intake pipes or trapped against the screens when they are unable to swim away from the force. Outdated power plant cooling structures across the country consume more than 200 billion gallons of water each day and kill billions of fish a year--and they are completely unnecessary. Simply installing less-wasteful cooling technology stops 95% of fish kills and water use by power plants. ...[T]he EPA just proposed to let power plants off the hook--and we only have until July 19 to urge them to set a strong national standard for power plants to use safer closed-loop cooling systems.
