With 12 days to go before the presidential election, Powell publicly endorsed President Obama for re-election on "CBS This Morning" Thursday "I voted for him in 2008 and I plan to stick with him in 2012 and I'll be voting for he and for Vice President Joe Biden next month."

Sununu suggests Powell's endorsement of Obama is racial 25 Oct 2012 John Sununu, the former New Hampshire governor and surrogate for Mitt Romney, suggested during an interview with CNN Thursday night that Colin Powell endorsed President Obama because both are African American. Piers Morgan asked Sununu to comment on the former secretary of state, who is a Republican, bucking his party to back Obama. "[F]rankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama?" Sununu said. "What reason would that be?" Morgan pressed. "Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being President of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him."

Worst Storm in 100 Years Seen for Northeast U.S.

October 26, 2012 by legitgov

Worst Storm in 100 Years Seen for Northeast U.S. 26 Oct 2012 Hurricane Sandy will probably grow into a “Frankenstorm” that may become the worst to hit the U.S. Northeast in 100 years if current forecasts are correct. Sandy may combine with a second storm coming out of the Midwest to create a system that would rival the New England hurricane of 1938 in intensity, said Paul Kocin, a National Weather Service meteorologist in College Park, Maryland. The hurricane currently passing the Bahamas has killed 21 people across the Caribbean, the Associated Press reported, citing local officials. "What we're seeing in some of our models is a storm at an intensity that we have not seen in this part of the country in the past century," Kocin said in a telephone interview yesterday.

October 26, 2012 by legitgov

Things that make you go 'hmm.' Faux News already preparing us: 'There could be widespread power outages lasting to Election Day' --East Coast prepares for pre-Halloween 'Frankenstorm' 26 Oct 2012 The pre-Halloween hybrid weather monster that federal forecasters call "Frankenstorm" is looking more ominous by the hour for the East Coast, and utilities and local governments are getting ready. Meteorologists expect a natural horror show of high wind, heavy rain, extreme tides and maybe snow to the west beginning early Sunday, peaking with the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on Tuesday and lingering past Halloween on Wednesday. Hurricane Sandy, which has killed 21 in the Caribbean, is currently sweeping through the Bahamas and is barreling north. A wintry storm is chugging across the country from the west. And frigid air is streaming south from Canada. "It's looking like a very serious storm that could be historic," said Jeff Masters, meteorology director of the forecasting service Weather Underground.

Fukushima 'running out of space' to store radioactive water

October 26, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima 'running out of space' to store radioactive water --Nuclear engineer: 'Radioactive water in the basements may already be getting into the underground water system, where it could reach far beyond the plant, possibly into the ocean or public water supplies.' 25 Oct 2012 Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant is struggling to find space to store tens of thousands of tons of highly contaminated water, it emerged today. About 200,000 tons of radioactive water used to cool the broken reactors are being stored in hundreds of gigantic tanks built around the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. Tepco's tanks are filling up mostly because leaks in reactor facilities are allowing ground water to pour in.

Japan: Nuclear radiation could leak past zones 25 Oct 2012 Radiation leaks from Japan's nuclear reactors could spread farther than expected in the event of an accident, the country's nuclear regulatory agency said. Simulations conducted by the Nuclear Regulation Authority found hazardous levels of radiation could go beyond the 18.6-mile-radius priority zones used for emergency management planning, The Yomiuri Shimbun reported Thursday. A report released Wednesday by the NRA said the simulations found accumulated radiation levels around four of 16 nuclear plants could reach levels at which residents would need to evacuate in seven days.

U.S. forecasters predict 'Frankenstorm' for East Coast 25 Oct 2012 An unusual nasty mix of a hurricane and a winter storm that forecasters are now calling "Franken-storm" is likely to blast most of the U.S. East Coast next week, focusing the worst of its weather mayhem around New York City and New Jersey. Government forecasters on Thursday upped the odds of a major weather mess, now saying there's a 90-per-cent chance that the East will get steady gale-force winds, heavy rain, flooding and maybe snow starting Sunday and stretching past Halloween on Wednesday.

The finding suggests that the region's coastal-dwelling fish are still being exposed to new sources of cesium, possibly from the seafloor or from contaminated groundwater that's flowing into the ocean.

Italy Bans Novartis Flu Vaccines, Citing Side Effects 24 Oct 2012 Italy and Switzerland halted sales of Novartis AG's flu vaccines after the company informed Italian authorities of a buildup of particles in the shots. Novartis said the products are safe. Novartis didn't provide enough information for officials to know the exact makeup of the proteins [not to mention insect parts, mercury, and squalene] found in the Agrippal and Fluad shots, or their impact on the quality and safety of the vaccine, Italy's Health Ministry said today in a statement.

Remote U.S. base at core of secret targeted-killing operations

October 26, 2012 by legitgov

Remote U.S. base at core of secret targeted-killing operations --The Obama administration has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal the legal and operational details of its targeted-killing program. 25 Oct 2012 Around the clock, about 16 times a day, drones take off or land at a U.S. military base here, the combat hub for the Obama administration's counterterrorism wars in the Horn of Africa and the Middle East. Some of the unmanned aircraft are bound for Somalia. Most of the armed drones, however, veer north across the Gulf of Aden to Yemen. Camp Lemonnier, a sun-baked Third World outpost established by the French Foreign Legion, began as a temporary staging ground for U.S. Marines looking for a foothold in the region a decade ago. Over the past two years, the U.S. military has clandestinely transformed it into the busiest Predator drone base outside the Afghan war zone, a model for fighting a new generation of terrorist groups new US war crimes. Behind closed doors, painstaking debates precede each decision to place an individual in the cross hairs of the United States' perpetual war against 'al-Qaeda' and its allies. [Targeting killing we can believe in!]

Early Worries That Hurricane Sandy Could Be a 'Perfect Storm'

October 26, 2012 by legitgov

Early Worries That Hurricane Sandy Could Be a 'Perfect Storm' 26 Oct 2012 Hurricane Sandy, which on Thursday was barreling through the Bahamas as a Category 2 storm, may be taking aim at the northeastern United States and could make landfall along the Atlantic coast early next week. If so, forecasters say, the storm could become, to use a technical term from meteorology, a whopper. "It really could be an extremely significant, historic storm," said Brian McNoldy, a senior research associate at the University of Miami, explaining that conditions are similar to those that created the famous "perfect storm" of 1991. That disaster was memorialized in a 1997 novel and a 2000 movie by the same name.

Obama moves to make the War on Terror permanent 24 Oct 2012 The Washington Post has a crucial and disturbing story this morning [23 Oct] by Greg Miller about the concerted efforts by the Obama administration to fully institutionalize – to make officially permanent – the most extremist powers it has exercised in the name of the war on terror...To understand the Obama legacy, please re-read that sentence. As Murtaza Hussain put it when reacting to the Post story: "The US agonized over the targeted killing Bin Laden at Tarnak Farms in 1998; now it kills people it barely suspects of anything on a regular basis."

AT&T Blocking CLG Newsletters, Again 25 Oct 2012 AT&T -- and its domains, including Yahoo.com -- is blocking the CLG Newsletters from reaching anyone who uses AT&T, once again.

And so, some back issues may (finally) be released.)
