Romney's Words

September 19, 2012 by walden9

Romney's Words 19 Sep 2012 The video of a Mitt Romney campaign fundraiser posted Monday on the Mother Jones web site has provided a revealing glimpse of what the financial magnates think and what they say to one another in the privacy of their board rooms and mansions...Romney's words, secretly filmed and leaked to the liberal magazine, were addressed to attendees at a $50,000-a-plate dinner held last May at the Boca Raton, Florida home of a fellow private equity multi-millionaire, Marc Leder. They express the arrogant and misanthropic outlook of the financial parasites who dominate economic life and control both big business parties.

Suicide blast kills 12 near Kabul's airport in Afghanistan 18 Sep 2012 Twelve people were killed near Kabul’s airport Tuesday when a suicide car bomber rammed into a minivan carrying foreign air-charter workers, Afghan officials said. A Pakistan-based militant group said it carried out the attack to avenge a YouTube video that defames the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Many of the victims were contract personnel with Air Charter Service, a British-based company that provides services to the U.S. Agency for International Development and other organizations in Afghanistan, U.S. Embassy officials said.

US suspends joint military operations with Afghanistan after attacks

US suspends joint military operations with Afghanistan after attacks 17 Sep 2012 The US military has suspended joint operations with Afghan forces because of a collapse in trust after a surge in the number of Americans and other Nato soldiers killed by the men they are fighting alongside or training. The chief US military officer, General Martin Dempsey, described the sharp rise in "insider attacks" by rogue Afghan soldiers and policemen, which saw four American and two British soldiers killed at the weekend, as "a very serious threat to the campaign" against the Taliban. American commanders said that joint operations on the ground will be suspended "until further notice" in a dramatic admission that the strategy to shift responsibility for fighting the insurgents to local forces has been deeply compromised by Afghan government soldiers and policemen killing 51 Nato soldiers in 36 attacks this year.

Turkish security forces foil plot to sell cesium-137 18 Sep 2012 Turkish security forces have seized two tubes of radioactive cesium-137 being transported in a vehicle in the northeastern province of Giresun on the Black Sea, Press TV reports. Acting on a tipoff that highly toxic radioactive material was on board a car heading from the northeastern city of Trabzon to Giresun city, which is situated 622 kilometers (387 miles) east of Ankara, Turkish soldiers stopped the car near the town of Gulburnu on Tuesday. Upon searching the car, they found two glass tubes of cesium-137 hidden inside the vehicle.

Judge: Police to enforce Arizona immigration law 18 Sep 2012 A judge has ruled that police in Arizona can immediately start enforcing the most contentious section of the state's immigration law, marking the first time officers can carry out a requirement that officers, while enforcing other laws, question the immigration status of those suspected of being in the country illegally. The decision on Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton is the latest milestone in a two-year legal battle over the requirement. It culminated in a U.S. Supreme Court decision in June that upheld the provision on the grounds that it doesn't conflict with federal law.

Intel agencies warned U.S. Embassy in Egypt of possible violence 17 Sep 2012 A U.S. intelligence cable warned the American Embassy in Cairo of possible violence in response to Arabic-language broadcasts of clips from an anti-Muslim film, U.S. government sources said on Monday. The cable, dispatched from Washington on September 10, the day before protests erupted, advised the embassy the broadcasts could provoke violence. It did not direct specific measures to upgrade security, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Shell executive caught after accidentally printing child pornography at work 17 Sep 2012 A former Shell executive was caught downloading child pornography at home when he accidentally printed off explicit images at work, a court heard. Anthony Sturman, 59, sent six pages containing indecent material to a printer at the UK headquarters of Shell UK, where he had worked for 15 years. Sturman, described as a 'senior manager' at the oil giant, was viewing child pornography at his country home in Kent when he pressed the print button. His PC was linked to his work system, so the images were produced at his office.

Obama wins right to indefinitely detain Americans under NDAA

September 18, 2012 by legitgov

Chains we can believe in: Obama wins right to indefinitely detain Americans under NDAA 18 Sep 2012 A lone appeals judge bowed down to the Obama administration late Monday and reauthorized the White House's ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process. Last week, a federal judge ruled that a temporary injunction on section 702 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 must be made permanent, essentially barring the White House from enforcing a clause in the NDAA that can let them put any US citizen behind bars indefinitely over mere allegations of terrorist associations. On Monday, the US Justice Department asked for an emergency stay on that order, and hours later US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Raymond Lohier agreed to intervene and place a hold on the injunction. The stay will remain in effect until at least September 28, when a three-judge appeals court panel is expected to begin addressing the issue.

Romney: 'Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace' 18 Sep 2012 US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney questioned the feasibility of the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, according to video footage published Tuesday by US magazine Mother Jones. "I'm torn by two perspectives in this regard," Romney said at a $50,000-per-plate fundraising dinner on May 17. "One is the one which I've had for some time, which is that the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish."

The attack took place on the eight-lane highway in front of a wedding hall in the Afghan capital on Tuesday. Reports say a bomber blew up the minivan, killing nine foreign workers, their Afghan translator, and two other Afghans. Eight Afghan workers have also been wounded in the bomb attack.

More than 180 Occupy Wall Street arrests in NYC financial district 17 Sep 2012 Occupy Wall Street protesters celebrated the movement's anniversary on Monday by clogging intersections in the city's financial district. In total, there were a few hundred protesters scattered throughout the city. More than 180 of them were arrested by early Monday evening, mostly on disorderly conduct charges. Zuccotti Park, the former home of the encampment, was encircled by metal police barricades lined with police officers standing watch.

Pakistan fires nuclear capable missile 17 Sep 2012 Pakistan on Monday test-fired a nuclear-capable cruise missile with "stealth features", the military said, the country's first such exercise in more than three months. The military described the Hatf-VII Babur missile as a "low-flying, terrain-hugging missile, which can strike targets both at land and sea with pin point accuracy" and has a range of 700 kilometres (440 miles).

White House demands military prisons for Americans under NDAA

September 18, 2012 by legitgov

White House demands military prisons for Americans under NDAA 17 Sep 2012 The White House has asked the US Second Circuit Court of Appeals to place an emergency stay on a ruling made last week by a federal judge so that the president's power to indefinitely detain Americans without charge is reaffirmed immediately. On September 12, US District Court Judge Katherine Forrest made permanent a temporary injunction she issued in May that bars the federal government from abiding by the indefinite detention provision in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, or NDAA. Judge Forrest ruled that a clause that gives the government the power to arrest US citizens suspected of maintaining alliances with terrorists and hold them without due process violated the Constitution and that the White House would be stripped of that ability immediately.

US lost eight jets in worst air loss in one day since Vietnam war 17 Sep 2012 After Taliban gunmen destroyed eight Harrier jets at a US camp in Helmand Province, the US military has suffered its worst air loss in one day since the Vietnam War. The Taliban attacked Camp Bastion, the main strategic base in southwestern Afghanistan, on Sept. 14, causing $200 million in damage in the single most destructive strike on a Western base during the war, according to military officials. Two Marines were killed, nine coalition personnel were wounded and six jets costing between $23 million and $30 million were completely destroyed.

50 US troops deployed in Sana'a, Yemen govt. says 17 Sep 2012 The Yemeni government says the United States has deployed 50 Marines in Sana'a to boost security at the US Embassy in response to the recent violent upheavals over an anti-Islam movie. On Friday, the Pentagon announced that it had sent Marines to Yemen after demonstrators stormed the US Embassy in Sana'a in protest over an anti-Islam film made in the US. Earlier, some media outlets reported that 250 US soldiers had arrived in Sana'a on Friday and Saturday.

Romney derides Obama supporters in hidden-camera speech 18 Sep 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney dismissed supporters of President Barack Obama - almost half of U.S. voters - as people who live off government handouts and do not "care for their lives," in a potentially damaging video. The video, taken secretly at a fundraising event for the former private-equity executive, was the latest setback for a campaign struggling with low poll numbers and reports of infighting. "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them," Romney said in a hidden-camera video of remarks to potential donors earlier this year posted on Monday on left-wing [sic] Mother Jones magazine's website

Inside the campaign: How Mitt Romney stumbled

September 18, 2012 by legitgov

Inside the campaign: How Mitt Romney stumbled 16 Sep 2012 Stuart Stevens, Mitt Romney's top strategist, knew his candidate's convention speech needed a memorable mix of loft and grace if he was going to bound out of Tampa with an authentic chance to win the presidency. So Stevens, bypassing the speechwriting staff at the campaign's Boston headquarters, assigned the sensitive task of drafting it to Peter Wehner, a veteran of the last three Republican White Houses and one of the party's smarter wordsmiths. Stevens junked the entire thing, setting off a chaotic, eight-day scramble that would produce an hour of prime-time problems for Romney, including Clint Eastwood's meandering monologue to an empty chair. Romney's convention stumbles have provoked weeks of public griping and internal sniping about not only Romney but also his mercurial campaign muse, Stevens.

Condom used as evidence in Assange sex case 'does not contain his DNA'

Condom used as evidence in Assange sex case 'does not contain his DNA' --Swedish authorities requesting his extradition from Britain to stand trial 15 Sep 2012 Lawyers for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange have revealed that a key piece of evidence does not contain his DNA. A torn condom given to Swedish police by one of the alleged victims was examined by staff at two forensic laboratories but they could not find any conclusive evidence of Mr Assange's DNA on it. The same forensic teams found DNA thought to belong to the WikiLeaks boss on another condom, which was submitted by the second alleged victim. The revelation is contained in a 100-page police report that was written after witnesses were interviewed and forensic evidence had been examined.

U.S. Warns Ruling Impedes Its Detention Powers

September 17, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Warns Ruling Impedes Its Detention Powers 18 Sep 2012 The Obama administration warned Monday that a judge's ruling last week blocking a statute authorizing the indefinite detention of terrorism suspects has jeopardized its ability to continue detaining certain prisoners captured during the war in Afghanistan. In an emergency appeal of the ruling, the government asserted that United States District Court Judge Katherine B. Forrest went beyond enjoining the statute - enacted last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act - and potentially curtailed detention powers it has been exercising for years under its interpretation of the authorization to use military force against the perpetrators of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The indefinite detention provision in the version of the annual National Defense Authorization Act enacted last year was contentious because lawmakers did not make clear whether American citizens could also be held without trial as wartime prisoners, and they did not specify what kinds of conduct constituted the "support" that could make someone detainable, nor which "associated forces" were off-limits.

Iran's newest nuclear facility struck by saboteurs

Iran's newest nuclear facility struck by saboteurs 17 Sep 2012 Saboteurs have struck Iran's newest and most sensitive nuclear facility by blowing up its power supply cables, the head of the country's atomic energy programme disclosed. This announcement offered a rare glimpse of a long-running campaign to sabotage Iran's critical nuclear installations, believed to be a key priority of Western and Israeli intelligence agencies. The Fordow plant, located inside a bunker dug into a mountainside, became the latest target on Aug 17 when an explosion severed its electricity cables, running from the nearby city of Qom. Fereydoun Abbasi, the head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation, disclosed the incident during a speech in Vienna to the 155 members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). He noted that IAEA inspectors visited Fordow the day after the explosion and insinuated that they might have been responsible.

US deploys extra troops overseas as protests continue to spread --Demonstrations over Prophet film now in 20 Muslim countries and likely to persist for days 17 Sep 2012 Conceding that angry protests are likely to continue for days, the US defence department has sent extra troops to protect "personnel and property" at America's diplomatic outposts across the Muslim world. The deployment was revealed as the Obama administration ordered an evacuation of all but emergency staff from Tunisia and Sudan... The Pentagon has "deployed forces to a number of areas in the region", said the Defence Secretary, Leon Panetta.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel to striking Chicago teachers: See you in court 16 Sep 2012 The Chicago teachers strike may not end the way they want it to: Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced plans Sunday evening to sue the union and force what he called an illegal strike to end immediately. After little over two hours of reportedly contentious deliberation on Sunday afternoon, 800 teachers union delegates voted against ending the strike after negotiators from the district and the union had reached a tentative deal. Emanuel's office said it had told the city’s legal counsel to work with the school district’s attorneys to file an injunction in court to return students to their classrooms "immediately."

Karzai slams US for failing to transfer of Bagram inmates to Afghanistan 16 Sep 2012 Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai has criticized the US for failing to transfer the control of hundreds of inmates at the Bagram Detention Center to Afghan authorities. Karzai slammed Washington for not transferring some 600 inmates over to Afghan control, about a week after the prison was handed over to Afghanistan. "Delay in the handing over of prisoners after September 9th is a serious violation of the agreement signed between Afghanistan and the United States," the Afghan president said in a statement on Sunday.

Poll: Obama up by 11 in Pennsylvania 16 Sep 2012 More evidence that President Obama has a big lead in the key state of Pennsylvania. A new Philadelphia Inquirer Pennsylvania Poll puts Obama ahead of Republican Mitt Romney by 50%-39%, putting the incumbent in position for a sixth straight Democratic win in the Keystone State. The Inquirer reports that "the Romney camp clearly has signaled doubts about Pennsylvania by slashing TV ads and candidate appearances. Obama, too, has cut back, and the state lags behind Ohio, Florida, and other swing states as targets for the most intensive campaigning."

Chicago teachers union to continue strike 16 Sep 2012 The Chicago teachers union will continue its week-old strike in the nation's third-largest city, keeping thousands of students out of class. The union was considering a proposed contract giving teachers annual raises over three years and offering some laid-off teachers a first shot at jobs at other schools. Officials from the union and school district met until late Saturday to work out the exact language of a contract after announcing Friday that they had reached the "framework" of an agreement that could return 350,000 students to the classroom.

Anti-Islam Film Producer Wrote Script in Prison: Authorities 13 Sep 2012 The controversial "Innocence of Muslims" was written, produced and directed by a convicted drug manufacturer and scam artist, who has told authorities he actually wrote the script in federal prison and began production two months after his June 2011 release from custody. Authorities say Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, of Cerritos, California, admitted his role in the film, after seeking help from law enforcement in dealing with death threats he has received since the release of the film.
