August 15, 2012 by legitgov

Judge won't stop controversial Pennsylvania voter ID law --Voters will have to show photo ID at polls in November 15 Aug 2012 A Pennsylvania judge on Wednesday refused to stop a tough new voter identification law from going into effect, which Democrats said will suppress votes among President Barack Obama's supporters. Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson said he wouldn't grant an injunction that would have halted the law requiring each voter to show a valid photo ID. [That's why RMoney and parasite Paul Ryan know that they can say whatever they want and they'll still 'win.' They know that Coup 2012 -- backed by the high Wh*re Court -- will assure them a 'victory.' Under cover of false complaints of 'vote fraud,' they are busy little bees enacting Jim Crow-style laws all over the country, to ensure theft of the entire 'election.' --LRP]

August 15, 2012 by legitgov

Israel sees monthlong war after Iran strike 15 Aug 2012 An Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear program could trigger a bloody monthlong war on multiple fronts, killing hundreds of Israelis or more, the Israeli Cabinet's civil defense chief warned in an interview published Wednesday.

Matan Vilnai, who is stepping down as the "home front" Cabinet minister to become Israel's ambassador to China, described the scenarios to Israel's Maariv daily at a time of heightened debate about the Iranian nuclear threat.

Paul Ryan sold shares on same day as private briefing of banking crisis 13 Aug 2012 Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's vice-presidential running mate, sold stock in US banks on the same day he attended a confidential meeting where top level officials disclosed the sector was heading for a deep crisis.

Warm seawater forces Conn. nuclear plant shutdown

August 13, 2012 by legitgov

Warm seawater forces Conn. nuclear plant shutdown 13 Aug 2012 Connecticut's nuclear power plant shut down one of two units on Sunday because seawater used to cool down the plant is too warm. Unit 2 of Millstone Power Station has occasionally shut for maintenance or other issues, but in its 37-year history it has never gone down due to excessively warm water, spokesman Ken Holt said on Monday. Water from Long Island Sound is used to cool key components of the plant and is discharged back into the sound. The water cannot be warmer than 75 degrees and following the hottest July on record has been averaging 1.7 degrees above the limit, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said.

August 13, 2012 by legitgov

TSA officers allege racial profiling in security lines at Boston airport 12 Aug 2012 An initiative to flag potential terrorist threats at an Boston airport has led to to widespread racial profiling of passengers, it was reported Sunday. A report by the New York Times found that more than 30 federal officers involved in the "behaviour detection" programme at Logan International Airport said that the operation targets black and Hispanic people as well as those of a Middle Eastern appearance. The claims will come as an embarrassment to air security chiefs, who had been touting the initiative as a model for transport hubs across the US.

Racial Profiling Rife at Airport, U.S. Officers Say 12 Aug 2012 More than 30 federal officers in an airport program intended to spot telltale mannerisms of potential terrorists say the operation has become a magnet for racial profiling, targeting not only Middle Easterners but also blacks, Hispanics and other minorities. In interviews and internal complaints, officers from the Transportation Security Administration's "behavior detection" program at Logan International Airport in Boston asserted that passengers who fit certain profiles - Hispanics traveling to Miami, for instance, or blacks wearing baseball caps backward - are much more likely to be stopped, searched and questioned for "suspicious" behavior.

Save Golden Eagles From Marine Aircraft

Save Golden Eagles From Marine Aircraft 12 Aug 2012 There are only 650 golden eagles left in Japan, but the United States Marines plan to fly their controversial hybrid Osprey right through the eagles' habitat. Mountain hawk eagles and ptarmigans, also on the endangered list, live along the route planned for a low-flying Osprey as well. Japanese environmentalists are justifiably up in arms. The Nature Conservation Society of Japan isn't just worried about collisions. They think the noise and pollution associated with the Osprey--which is part jet, part helicopter--are enough to drive the birds closer to extinction. Tell the US Marines to change the Osprey's flight path so that it doesn't harm endangered Japanese birds! (Petition)

U.S., Turkey to explore imposing Syria no-fly zones 11 Aug 2012 The United States and Turkey indicated on Saturday they might impose no-fly zones in Syria as battles between [CIA-backed] rebels and President Bashar al-Assad's forces shook Aleppo and fighting erupted in the heart of Damascus.

Anger as US prosecutors scrap probe of Goldman 11 Aug 2012 Goldman Sachs was let off the hook yesterday as the US Department of Justice dropped plans to bring criminal charges over claims the bank was betting against the same toxic subprime mortgage securities it sold to clients.
