August 7, 2011 by legitgov

All 50 States See Record Highs in July 01 Aug 2011 No state in the union was safe from July's blistering heat wave, according to data from the U.S. National Climatic Data Center. The horrible July heat wave, lasting weeks in some cities, the entire month in others, affected nearly 200 million people in the United States at some point. Preliminary data show that 2,712 high-temperature records were either tied or broken in July, compared with 1,444 last year, according to the NCDC. At least one weather station in all 50 states set or tied a daily high temperature record at some point during July.

How Did Those Vermont Fish Get Radioactive? --Radioactive fish collected nine miles upstream from Connecticut Yankee Nuclear Power Plant 05 Aug 2011 "Hey, don't look at us" has been Entergy Corporation's response to the discovery of Strontium-90 in fish from the Connecticut River. But the contamination, revealed this week by the Vermont Department of Health, promises to complicate the utility's effort to extend the license of its aging Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant. One of the most lethal by-products of nuclear fission, Strontium-90 was found in the bones of nine of 13 fish collected from the Connecticut River last summer, and for the first time, in the edible flesh of one fish.

Protesters retake Madrid square after police charge 06 Aug 2011 Thousands of Spain's "indignant" protesters reoccupied Madrid's main square a day after riot police swooped down on demonstrators who rallied at the interior ministry to protest its closure. Police stood by late Friday as the demonstrators entered the Puerta del Sol square, the symbol of their movement against the government's handling of Spain's economic crisis. The protesters set up a huge banner at the entrance to the square that read "Welcome Dignity" and sat on the ground to hold a "popular assembly" to discuss future protest action.

Stop the Super Dictatorship

August 7, 2011 by legitgov

Stop the Super Dictatorship By Lori Price, http://www.legitgov.org/ 07 Aug 2011 The unconstitutional 'Super Congress' aka 'Super Dictatorship' is the final straw! We will NOT tolerate 'Cat Food Commission II' (Firedoglake's epithet), established by and for the Tea Party/Wall Street sycophant Barack Obama. The DemocRATs will cave to the Republicans in seven picoseconds -- as the have since December 2000 when Al Gore 'offered his concession' in the *first* GOP coup d'etat. The US deficit was *created* and *exploded* through illegal off-the-books wars for oil, gas, opium, and Blackwater. Want to cut spending? STOP the illegal wars and STOP stealing from and exploiting the poor! Obusha, wake up and smell the Italian Roast: NO ONE is voting for you, despite MSNBC and Faux News who want you to be the Democratic candidate. Let's get an *actual* Democrat on the ballot and Obama can then follow his dream and sit on the board of directors at GE, Exelon and/or TEPCO. [Join us on Facebook! Stop the Super Dictatorship.]

Images of the acts emerged in 2004, sparking international outrage.

Mystery million-dollar Romney donor revealed --Former director of investment firm once headed by GOP hopeful behind donation 06 Aug 2011 In a move aimed at tamping down a mounting controversy over secret money in presidential politics, a political committee backing Mitt Romney Saturday publicly identified a former Bain Capital managing director as the source of a mysterious $1 million contribution to its coffers. Restore Our Future, the pro-Romney committee, said that Edward W. Conard, who was for years associated with Bain Capital, the huge investment firm that Romney once headed, was the figure behind an obscure company called "W Spann LLC" that was listed as donating $1 million to the group last spring.

Firm gives $1 million to pro-Romney group, then dissolves --Records offer no clues who was behind mystery company that donated to 'super PAC' 04 Aug 2011 A mystery company [W Spann LLC] that pumped $1 million into a political committee backing Mitt Romney has been dissolved just months after it was formed, leaving few clues as to who was behind one of the biggest contributions yet of the 2012 presidential campaign. The existence of the million-dollar donation -- as gleaned from campaign and corporate records obtained by NBC News -- provides a vivid example of how secret campaign cash is being funneled in ever more circuitous ways into the political system.

August 6, 2011 by legitgov

'NATO planning military attack on Iran' 06 Aug 2011 Russia's envoy to NATO Dmitry Rogozin says the NATO is planning a military strike against the Islamic Republic to overthrow the Iranian government. Rogozin said in an interview with Russia's Izvestia daily newspaper published on Friday that the NATO was pursuing a long-reaching goal of preparing an attack on Iran, adding that the alliance intends to change governments whose views do not coincide with those of the West. The Russian envoy further pointed out that Syria and later Yemen could be NATO's last steps on the way to launch an attack on Iran. [See that?

The pledge also includes promises to vigorously defend the Defense of Marriage Act in courts and nominate Supreme Court and federal judges who "reject the idea our Founding Fathers inserted a right to gay marriage into our Constitution."

The Department of Homeland Security notified 39 governors Friday that the fingerprint-sharing program did not need their approval to operate in their states, and said it had voided agreements they had signed to authorize their states' participation, according to a copy of the letter.

U.S. triple-A debt rating cut by Standard & Poor's

August 6, 2011 by legitgov

U.S. triple-A debt rating cut by Standard & Poor's 05 Aug 2011 The United States late Friday lost its triple-A debt rating from Standard & Poor's for the first time in its history, with the credit-rating agency saying the political system of the world's top economy has become less stable and that budget cutting announced earlier this week didn't go far enough. S&P lowered its rating on the U.S. by a notch to AA+ and, to compound the embarrassment, said the outlook is negative as well, as it threatened another reduction in two years. [Standard & Poor's: Weren't these the same a**wipes giving all the sub-prime mortgages a top rating, along with every other corpora-terrorist's bad loans, and is retaliating because Dodd-Frank exposed S&P's hypocritical loan-rating insanity? --LRP]

Rough Week For Wall Street Ends With S&P Credit Downgrade 05 Aug 2011 The S&P credit rating agency has capped off a rough week on Wall Street with the United States' first downgrade from a rating of AAA to AA+.

The Dow Jones industrial average gained 61 points by close, but traded in a huge range of 400 points. The S&P 500 fell a point and the Nasdaq was down 24 points. This close follows Thursday, which was the worst day on Wall Street since the financial crisis back in 2008.

New Orleans officers guilty in Katrina shootings 05 Aug 2011 A federal jury found four New Orleans police officers guilty on Friday of civil rights violations over the shooting deaths of civilians in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and a subsequent cover-up.

The charges were linked to the New Orleans police shootings on the Danziger Bridge in 2005 that killed two civilians, 17-year-old James Brissette and 40-year-old Ronald Madison, and seriously wounded four others.

Obama wants Pentagon's top weapons buyer for Defense nominee 04 Aug 2011 When President Obama nominated former Raytheon lobbyist William J. Lynn III as deputy defense secretary early in his administration, critics railed that the move clashed with Mr. Obama's campaign pledge to close the revolving door between government and the defense industry. Now that Mr. Lynn is leaving, Mr. Obama wants to promote the Pentagon's top weapons buyer, Ashton Carter, to the job. Mr. Carter received $65,000 from the Mitre Corp., more than $100,000 from Global Technology Partners, $20,000 from Goldman Sachs, and $10,000 from Raytheon.

Kentucky to privatize management of Medicaid program By Ryan Rahilly 05 Aug 2011 Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear (D) is spearheading the privatization of Medicaid in the state, a move that will restrict services for the program's 815,000 enrollees.

Poll: Debt deal bad for Boehner 04 Aug 2011 House Speaker John Boehner boasted this week that he got 98 percent of what he wanted out of the debt and deficit negotiations with the White House and Senate Democrats. But Boehner's apparent victory may be a Pyrrhic one. A new national poll not only finds record low approval ratings for Congress overall, but it also shows the American public disapproving of how congressional Republicans and the tea party handled the debt talks. Fifty-seven percent of Americans disapprove of the way Boehner is handling his job, according to a New York Times/CBS News survey released Thursday evening.
