The government has said at least 21 Somali-Americans are believed to have traveled to Somalia to join the terror group in what began as a push to expel Ethiopian soldiers.

July 27, 2011 by legitgov

Thousands of federal aviation workers furloughed 24 Jul 2011 Millions of dollars in US airport taxes went uncollected Sunday while thousands of federal workers were out of work for a second day, following Congress' failure last week to pass a [GOP union-busting] bill keeping the country's aviation authority running. Some 4,000 workers with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) were told to stay home beginning Saturday, after congressional authorization for several FAA programs expired at 12:01 a.m. that day. As a result, FAA employees in 35 states, as well as in Puerto Rico and Washington, DC are furloughed without pay, US officials said.

Breivik's injected his dum-dum bullets with poison to make them deadlier --Killer talked in manifesto of using liquid nicotine in ammunition 26 Jul 2011 Anders Breivik could have used 'chemically enhanced' ammunition to ensure every shot was deadly, police believe. In his disturbing 'manifesto' he talked of plans to put liquid nicotine in his bullets. If the blast did not kill victims outright, the nicotine would go on to poison them. It was already known that Breivik used 'dum-dum' bullets during his killing spree – the expanding round has a hollow point which leaves a large exit wound after causing horrific wounds.

White Americans are a record 20 times wealthier than blacks 27 Jul 2011 White families in the U.S. are now 20 times wealthier than ethnic minorities, the highest such difference ever recorded.

The widening wealth gap of 20 to 1 for blacks and 18 to 1 for Hispanics was the largest since the organisation began collecting data 25 years ago.

GOP leaders lobby members, Hannity 26 Jul 2011 Speaker John Boehner and House GOP leaders engaged in a furious last-minute lobbying effort inside and outside the Capitol on Tuesday evening to pass their debt ceiling package, but the outcome of that vote remains far from certain, according to Republican lawmakers and aides. With little or no Democratic support for the GOP plan, Boehner and his top lieutenants, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), had to battle their own party on two fronts. The Republican leadership trio has privately reached out to conservative TV personalities like Sean Hannity and Brit Hume, and Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot...

Analysts believe Iran scientist death was a foreign hit 26 Jul 2011 Western security agencies were most likely behind the killing of an Iranian scientist in an operation that underlines the myriad complications in the conflict over Iran's nuclear programme, analysts say.

July 26, 2011 by legitgov

New polls confirm Obama's Democratic base crumbles [As planned. Otherwise, Obama would simply invoke the 14th Amendment and end the great pseudo-debt ceiling debate.] 26 Jul 2011 With all of the spotlights on the high-stakes debt maneuverings by President Obama and Speaker John Boehner the last few days, few people noticed what Vermont's Sen. Bernie Sanders said: "I think it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition." Strong support among liberal Democrats for Obama's jobs record has plummeted 22 points from 53% down below a third. African Americans who believe the president's measures helped the economy have plunged from 77% to barely half.

Norway shooting: Glenn Beck compares dead teenagers to Hitler youth 25 Jul 2011 Glenn Beck, the leading Right-wing American broadcaster, has prompted outrage after comparing the teenage victims of the Utoya Island massacre to the Hitler Youth. Beck said that the Labour party youth camp on the island, where 68 people were murdered, bore "disturbing" similarities to the Nazi party's notorious juvenile wing. Beck, a multimillionaire darling of the Tea Party movement, said on his nationally-syndicated radio show: "There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing."

It would be interesting to know whether Anders Behring-Breivik was also on that rally.

Black Student Can't Be Valedictorian 25 Jul 2011 A high school southeast of Little Rock would not let a black student be valedictorian though she had the highest grade-point average, and wouldn't let her mom speak to the school board about it until graduation had passed, the graduate claims in Federal Court. Kymberly Wimberly, 18, got only a single B in her 4 years at McGehee Secondary School, and loaded up on Honors and Advanced Placement classes. She had the highest G.P.A. and says the school's refusal to let her be sole valedictorian was part of a pattern of discrimination against black students.

Melting Arctic ice releasing banned toxins, warn scientists

Melting Arctic ice releasing banned toxins, warn scientists --Unknown amount of trapped persistent organic pollutants poses threat to marine life and humans as temperatures rise 24 Jul 2011 The warming of the Arctic is releasing a new wave of banned toxic chemicals that had been trapped in the ice and cold water, scientists have discovered. The researchers warn that the amount of the poisons stockpiled in the polar region is unknown and their release could "undermine global efforts to reduce environmental and human exposure to them." The chemicals seeping out as temperatures rise include the pesticides DDT, lindane and chlordane, made infamous in Rachel Carson's 1962 book Silent Spring, as well as the industrial chemicals PCBs and the fungicide hexachlorobenzine (HCB). All of these persistent organic pollutants (Pops) are banned under the 2004 Stockholm Convention.

GOP Debt Ceiling Plan to Be 'Last One Standing' - to Obama's Delight

July 26, 2011 by legitgov

GOP Debt Ceiling Plan to Be 'Last One Standing' - to Obama's Delight --By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 26 Jul 2011 House Speaker John Boehner's plan will likely be the 'last one standing' -- one that President Obama must accept or face 'default' aka the pseudo-crisis created by and for the GOP -- and that is exactly the scenario he wants. Seeking political cover, Obama said he would veto earlier austere Boehner (R-OH) plans. That was never his actual intention, as he could have exposed the hypocrisy of the debt-ceiling self-generated crisis and invoked the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution. The stage is set for Obama to implement the Tea Party-pwned GOP plan and appear to be the 'adult in the room.'

Justice Department retracts court filings that undercut FBI's anthrax case 19 Jul 2011 Rushing into court to undo a major gaffe, Justice Department lawyers defending a civil suit Tuesday retracted statements that seemed to undercut the FBI's finding that a former Army microbiologist mailed the anthrax-filled letters that killed five people in 2001. Although the seven-page correction, filed in federal court in Florida, addresses conflicts between lawyers in the Civil and Criminal Divisions, it does not erase depositions filed by the government that challenged the FBI's finding that the late Bruce Ivins was the perpetrator.

'Super Congress': Debt Ceiling Negotiators Aim to Create New Legislative Body

'Super Congress': Debt Ceiling Negotiators Aim to Create New Legislative Body By Ryan Grim 24 Jul 2011 Debt ceiling negotiators think they've hit on a solution to address the debt ceiling impasse and the public's unwillingness to let go of benefits such as Medicare and Social Security that have been earned over a lifetime of work: Create a new Congress. This "Super Congress," composed of members of both chambers and both parties, isn't mentioned anywhere in the Constitution, but would be granted extraordinary new powers. Under a plan put forth by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his counterpart Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), legislation to lift the debt ceiling would be accompanied by the creation of a 12-member panel made up of 12 lawmakers -- six from each chamber and six from each party.

Israel PM guards tell women reporters to remove bras 22 Jul 2011 Foreign journalists on Friday spoke of their distress after being asked to remove their bras for a security check before being allowed into the offices of Israel's prime minister. The three women were told by security personnel to undress and take off their bras for x-ray in two separate incidents at the Jerusalem offices of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this week. All three complied with the request, despite the distress it caused, in an incident denounced by the Foreign Press Association (FPA) as "unnecessary, humiliating and counter-productive."
