Sake shipments surge in 3 disaster-hit prefectures after promotional efforts 03 Aug 2011 Shipments of refined sake from the three disaster-hit prefectures of Fukushima, Miyagi and Iwate boomed in May, apparently as a result of promotional events to help the areas recover from the March 11 disasters. Brewers in the prefectures, who saw shipments rise between 20 and 60 percent in May from a year earlier, say the sudden popularity is unprecedented. At the same time, some fear that concerns about the effects of radiation from the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant on rice and other materials used in the brewing process may hurt sales of sake produced from this autumn onwards.

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

Nikkei hits 5-week low on U.S. economic worries 03 Aug 2011 Tokyo stocks plunged Wednesday, with the key Nikkei stock index hitting the lowest closing since late June, as investors were discouraged by a sharp decline in U.S. stocks overnight on continued worries about a slowdown in the U.S. and world economies. The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average dropped 207.45 points, or 2.11 percent, from Tuesday to 9,637.14...

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

Only 92% of Newt Gingrich's Twitter Followers Are Fake (Gawker) 02 Aug 2011 Yesterday, we published an item based on a former Newt Gingrich staffer's claim that Gingrich assembled his 1.3 million Twitter followers--a number that he's taken to bragging about--in part by buying fake Twitter followers. A lot of people did not think that was true! But today social networking search firm PeekYou announced that it had crunched the data and come to the conclusion that roughly 106,055 of Gingrich's million-plus followers are real people. The rest are fakes.

Republican National Committee declares victory on debt

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

Republican National Committee declares victory on debt 02 Aug 2011 Attempting to frame the debt debate just moments after the Senate cleared the compromise bill, RNC chair Reince Priebus is sending out an email to the RNC list emphasizing the parts of the bill conservatives like - and noting how far the GOP has come [to destroy the US] in the last two years. In a nod to the considerable opposition toward the bill from both the party's grassroots and conservative members of Congress, Priebus concedes it's "far from perfect." Priebus's solution to making such bills better is to vote President Obama out of office and elect a majority in the Senate.

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

Debt ceiling surrender treaty becomes law 03 Aug 2011 The Senate voted Tuesday to raise the government's debt ceiling and cut trillions of dollars from its spending, concluding a long and fractious partisan battle just hours before the government's borrowing authority was set to run out.

Mitt Romney picks George W. Bush lawyers as judicial advisers

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

The Torture Team: Mitt Romney picks George W. Bush lawyers as judicial advisers --Predator Robert Bork, 9/11 inside job architect/false flags-for-profit whore Michael Chertoff, and waterboarding terrorist Steven Bradbury are among those picked by Grade 'A' sociopath Mitt Romney. 03 Aug 2011 Mitt Romney is mining the George W. Bush White House for legal 'talent' to advise his presidential campaign -- including a key person behind the controversial Justice Department memos authorizing waterboarding and other "enhanced interrogation techniques." On Tuesday, Romney released a list of the 63 lawyers on his Justice Advisory Committee, designed to advise his presidential campaign on legal policy and in some cases provide legal counsel. Its most [in]famous name: former Ronald Reagan Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork, whose nomination was voted down by the Senate.

FAA losing funding over GOP politics, Rahall says

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

FAA losing funding over GOP politics, Rahall says --Thanks to GOP union-busting 'poison pill,' by mid-September, FAA could lose $1 billion 02 Aug 2011 Rep. Nick J. Rahall renewed his criticisms of House Republicans on Tuesday for their part in failing to maintain Federal Aviation Administration funding before a recess begins later this week. Every day the FAA remains closed, the federal agency loses $30 million in taxes paid by airline passengers buying tickets. Most airlines are keeping that money rather than passing savings on to consumers. Rahall, the ranking Democrat on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said the FAA shutdown, has already caused the agency to issue 217 "stop-work orders" on $11 billion worth of maintenance and construction contracts, jeopardizing up to 87,000 jobs. The FAA has also temporarily laid off 3,600 engineers, safety analysts and aviation experts since the previous FAA legislation expired on July 23. [No worries. Obusha and the DemocRATS will surrender to resolve this latest hostage-taking by Wall Street-bcked GOP terrorists. --LRP]

Boston airport expands behavior detection program 02 Aug 2011 Air travelers departing from Boston Logan International Airport may experience something new during the screening process: a "casual conversation" with security at the checkpoint. On the job training began Tuesday for officers in the TSA's expanded behavior detection program -- a pilot initiative that will be in place in the airport's Terminal A for 60 days. As they talk with passengers, the [unqualified] officers will try to spot potentially high-risk travelers by looking for suspicious behavior and facial expressions of tension, fear or deception.

Widely used PTSD drug fails test in combat veterans

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

Widely used PTSD drug fails test in combat veterans 02 Aug 2011 A medication commonly used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder in combat veterans may not be effective in reducing overall PTSD severity, a new study shows. The six-month randomized, controlled trial found that the antipsychotic medication risperidone worked no better than a placebo in alleviating typical PTSD symptoms in patients who had been suffering from the disorder long-term or who continued to suffer symptoms after being treated with antidepressants. The medication also failed to quell depression and anxiety, researchers reported today in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

K Street gets ready to lobby super committee

K Street gets ready to lobby super committee 02 Aug 2011 K Street wasted little time putting clients on notice about the next phase of the debt ceiling debate with a simple message: Nobody is safe from the super committee. Although the defense and health care industries have the most to lose from the way the debt ceiling bill is set up, that doesn't mean everyone else can sit on the sidelines, K Street warns. Several lobbyists said they expect companies and industry groups to put a full-court press on Capitol Hill engaging grass roots, advertising and old-fashioned, shoe-leather lobbying to try to minimize the severity of the cuts.

US proposes ammonium nitrate regulations

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

US proposes ammonium nitrate regulations 02 Aug 2011 The Department of Homeland Security is proposing to restrict the sale of ammonium nitrate, a commonly used fertilizer that has also been an ingredient in terrorist bombings for decades. Under the rule to be formally published Wednesday, anyone who buys large amounts of ammonium nitrate, including farmers or workers seeking to use it as an explosive in mining or construction, would be required to register in advance. If they're not on any government watch lists, they'd get a federal user number which, along with a photo ID, would allow them to make purchases. Dealers would be barred from selling more than 25 pounds of ammonium nitrate to anyone who wasn't registered and would also be required to keep records of all sales.

August 3, 2011 by legitgov

Federal judge: CIA not in contempt for destroying interrogation tapes 01 Aug 2011 A federal judge on Monday rejected arguments that the CIA should be held in contempt for destroying videotapes allegedly showing the torture of detainees during interrogations. The ruling by Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York came in a motion by the American Civil Liberties Union that the intelligence agency be held in contempt. Although he ruled against the ACLU motion, the judge applauded the efforts of the ACLU's legal team for prompting the disclosure of thousands of documents related to detainee treatment.

New York police launch system to detect and track radiation 02 Aug 2011 The New York Police Department is launching a mobile radiation detection system equipped with location-tracking GPS technology that it says could help avert a so-called "dirty" bomb attack. While more than 2,000 belt-mounted radiation detectors are already used by city police, this will be the first time in the United States they will be combined with GPS technology to allow central monitoring, police spokesman Paul Browne said. If the technology is proven in New York it could appear elsewhere in the country.

Ultra-high radiation levels reported at Fukushima nuclear plant --Radiation levels at Fukushima could kill humans within seconds 02 Aug 2011 The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant detected the highest radiation levels at the facility since March, a company spokesman said Tuesday. The ultra-high levels of radiation were measured Monday afternoon on the grounds of the facility, between reactors No. 1 and 2, CNN reported. The radiation levels -- 10,000 millisieverts per hour -- are high enough that a single 60-minute dose would be fatal to humans within weeks, MSNBC reported. Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) said Tuesday it found another spot on the ventilation stack itself where radiation exceeded 10 sieverts per hour, a level that could lead to death after just several seconds of exposure.

'US troops need immunity to stay in Iraq'

'US troops need immunity to stay in Iraq' 02 Aug 2011 The top US military officer has urged the Iraqi government to grant American troops legal immunity if it wants them to stay in the country beyond a year-end deadline. Admiral Mike Mullen, the outgoing chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Tuesday that any deal authorizing the extension of US military presence in Iraq beyond the December 2011 deadline would require the Iraqi parliament to give staying American soldiers legal immunity, Reuters reported. [Immunity for more war crimes? Surely, the Iraqi parliament will vote *no,* and USociopaths will have to leave.]

Obama signs debt ceiling bill, ends 'crisis' 02 Aug 2011 President Barack Obama on Tuesday signed into law a last-minute compromise plan to raise the nation's $14.3 trillion debt ceiling, narrowly averting what could have been an unprecedented default with calamitous economic consequences. Obama's signature capped a tumultuous negotiation with congressional leaders that spanned months before finally coming up with an agreement on Sunday, two days before the government said it would run short of money pay its bills while lacking the authority to borrow any more. On Monday, the U.S. House passed the compromise measure terms of surrender by a 269-161 vote.

The Tent City of New Jersey: Desperate victims of the economic slump forced to live in makeshift homes in forest [Thanks, Governor Christie!] 02 Aug 2011 In scenes reminiscent of the Great Depression these are the ramshackle homes of the desperate and destitute U.S. families who have set up their own 'Tent City' only an hour from Manhattan. More than 50 homeless people have joined the community within New Jersey's forests as the economic crisis has wrecked their American dream. Building their own tarpaulin tents, Native American teepees and makeshift balsa wood homes, every one of the Tent City residents has lost their job.

Sources: Joe Biden likens tea partiers to terrorists 01 Aug 2011 Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having "acted like terrorists" in the fight over raising the nation's debt limit, according to several sources in the room. Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting. "We have negotiated with terrorists," an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. "This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money." Biden, driven by his Democratic allies' misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: "They have acted like terrorists."

Former NSA and CIA Director Suggests Creating 'Digital Blackwater' For Cyberwarfare

August 2, 2011 by legitgov

Former NSA and CIA Director Suggests Creating 'Digital Blackwater' For Cyberwarfare 01 Aug 2011 One of the architects of US foreign policy under George W. Bush, General Michael Hayden, suggested that the US Government should consider creating a "Digital Blackwater" during an open conversation with Bloomberg's Allan Holmes and several other cybersecurity specialists on stage, during an event called the Aspen Security Forum. Blackwater refers to the US private military group founded in 1997 and which has been renamed as Xe Services LLC, a move possibly linked with a number of high controversies that arose after the company expanded its security-related operations into Iraq and Afghanistan. Recruiting mercenaries, Hayden suggested "might be one of those big new ideas in terms of how we have to conduct ourselves in this new cyber domain," referring to cyber warfare.
