Charles Darwin earns 4,000 write-in votes against creationist Ga. congressman 08 Nov 2012 Charles Darwin earned almost 4,000 write-in votes against a Georgia congressman who denounced evolution and other scientific theories as "lies straight from the pit of hell." The symbolic votes in Athens-Clarke County were a small percentage of more than 209,000 votes won by Republican Rep. Paul Broun in his unopposed re-election Tuesday. Broun gave a speech to a church group on Sept. 27 lambasting evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory. Critics urged voters to write in the 19th-century British naturalist who is considered the father of evolution.

Hints of a more virulent, mutating West Nile virus emerge

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Hints of a more virulent, mutating West Nile virus emerge 08 Nov 2012 The West Nile virus epidemic of 2012, the worst in a decade, may be notorious for yet another reason: The virus, in some cases, is attacking the brain more aggressively than in the past, raising the specter that it may have mutated into a nastier form, say two neurologists who have extensive experience dealing with the illness. One doctor, Art Leis in Jackson, Miss., has seen the virus damaging the speech, language and thinking centers of the brain -- something he has never observed before. The other, Elizabeth Angus in Detroit, has noticed brain damage in young, previously healthy patients, not just in older, sicker ones -- another change from past years.

Getting All Your News From the 'Citizens for Legitimate Government' Newsletter

Getting All Your News From the 'Citizens for Legitimate Government' Newsletter By Miles Klee 02 Oct 2012 I'm not entirely sure how I ended up subscribing to the CLG newsletter, a roundup of hard-hitting political stories that span the globe, but I have not regretted it for one solitary moment. That's because between relatively sober summaries of under-reported suicide bombings in Afghanistan, they're running headlines about how U.S. army scientists are spraying St. Louis with radioactive particles and Gaddafi was killed on Nicolas Sarkozy's orders.

Mascot bird teaching Fukushima children how to avoid radiation

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Mascot bird teaching Fukushima children how to avoid radiation 10 Nov 2012 Nearly two years after Japan was struck by the Fukushima nuclear disaster, officials have begun printing leaflets featuring a yellow cartoon bird that instructs children on radiation safety - though it may be too late for thousands. Fukushima's disaster task force has started issuing leaflets with a bird character called Kibitan telling children to stay away from pools and ditches where radioactive cesium from the damaged nuclear power plant might have accumulated. The smiling, round Kibitan explains why radiation is dangerous, urging children to make a habit of washing their hands and gargling their mouths after coming in from the outdoors.

Petraeus Quits Post; Evidence of Affair Was Found by F.B.I.

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Petraeus Quits Post; Evidence of Affair Was Found by F.B.I. 10 Nov 2012  David H. Petraeus, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency and one of America's most decorated four-star generals, resigned on Friday after an F.B.I. investigation uncovered evidence that he was carrying on an extramarital affair. Mr. Petraeus issued a statement acknowledging the affair after President Obama accepted his resignation and it was announced by the C.I.A. He had offered to resign on Thursday when he informed Mr. Obama about the affair, White House officials said. Government officials said that the F.B.I. had investigated whether a computer used by Mr. Petraeus had been compromised. In the course of that inquiry, federal investigators discovered the relationship, officials said. [Instead of searching for evidence of Petraeus's affairs, why not look into his war crimes?]

November 9, 2012 by legitgov

Supreme Court to review key section of Voting Rights Act 09 Nov 2012 The Supreme Court on Friday said it would decide the constitutionality of a signature portion of the Voting Rights Act. The justices three years ago expressed skepticism about the continued need for Section 5 of the historic act, which requires states and localities with a history of discrimination, most of them in the South, to get federal approval of any changes in their voting laws. The court will be reviewing a decision last spring by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to uphold Section 5.

The Racist States of America: Shocking map reveals hateful tweets following Obama's re-election --Map comes two days after massive riot at Ole Miss 08 Nov 2012 Rather than using social media to express their frustration and disappointment that Republican Mitt Romney lost the election in an elegant way, many Twitter users instead used the platform to post shockingly racist tweets, calling President Obama a 'n*****' and a 'monkey.' A map collected by Floating Sheep shows the shocking demographic of racist 'hate tweets,' many of them collected from states that were won by Romney. The majority of the tweets, as Jezebel noted, were often from young white residents in southern states.

Health group asks Obama to stop eating junk food in public 08 Nov 2012 A Washington, D.C.-based health group is making another appeal to President Obama to stop eating junk food in public now that election season is over. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) made headlines in May when it filed a petition with the White House objecting to Obama's habit of grabbing hamburgers, hot dogs and other unhealthy foods with his staff and visiting dignitaries. On Wednesday, PCRM Founder Neal Barnard called on Obama to abandon the foods he ate on the campaign trail -- "cheesesteaks in Philly on Monday, barbecue in Dallas on Tuesday, cheese pizza in Madison, Wis., on Thursday" -- now that he has secured reelection.

November 9, 2012 by legitgov

Obama to pick new FBI director in second term 08 Nov 2012 Beyond the reshuffling of President Obama's Cabinet, another key personnel decision is looming in the administration's second term. In the coming months, Obama will decide a successor to Robert Mueller, the longest-serving FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover. Mueller, the only top national security official remaining in government since the 9/11 attacks [inside job], is set to leave office in 2013, after Congress took the unprecedented action of extending his 10-year term. Obama requested the extension last year to preserve some continuity in the national security structure, at a time when he was naming new executives to lead the Pentagon and CIA.

The Resilient Tunnel Plug has been years in development and testing, but it may be more relevant than ever: Superstorm Sandy sent a record 14-foot storm surge into New York Harbor, flooding subway tunnels that move some 5.2 million people a day.

Bradley Manning Offers to Plead Guilty to Partial Charges, Including Leaking to WikiLeaks 07 Nov 2012 Accused WikiLeaks leaker Bradley Manning offered on Wednesday to plead guilty to parts of the charges he is facing, in exchange for the government pursuing lesser charges.

The move is known as "pleading by exceptions and substitutions" and is a strategy for negotiating the charges against him, which his attorney has tried repeatedly to do, unsuccessfully, via other means during pre-trial hearings.
