April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Forcing the F.A.A. to Fly Blind By William J. McGee 10 Apr 2011 on the very day that Southwest's Flight 812 was diverted to Yuma, Ariz., for an emergency landing, the House of Representatives passed a bill likely to make it more difficult to detect and prevent midair ruptures, metal fatigue and other serious flight risks. The bill would cut $4 billion from the Federal Aviation Administration’s $37 billion budget... Such streamlining would probably mean reduction of F.A.A. staff, including safety inspectors.

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Tepco Says Water Level Rises in Fukushima No. 2 Reactor 09 Apr 2011 Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the water level rose in a trench at the No. 2 reactor at its Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, adding to concern the utility may have to speed up transfer of the radioactive fluid to a waste-treatment facility and tanks. Water rose 3 centimeters (1.2 inches) since yesterday, Naoki Tsunoda, a spokesman for the utility, said in a telephone interview from Tokyo today. About 60,000 tons of contaminated water lies in basements and trenches outside reactors No. 1, 2 and 3, Takeo Iwamoto, a company spokesman, said April 5.

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Big protest in Baghdad to demand U.S. leave Iraq 10 Apr 2011 A day after Defense Secretary Robert Gates suggested that U.S. troops could remain here for years, tens of thousands of protesters allied with Muqtada al-Sadr, the anti-American Shiite cleric, flooded the streets demanding an end to the U.S. military presence. The protests were scheduled before Gates' comments - made Friday during a visit to troops in northern Iraq - although his statements may have fueled some of the day's fervor.

The new funding extension, which cuts spending by $2 billion, will last through next Friday, April 15. The Senate immediately passed the extension on a voice vote. The House of Representatives followed suit early Saturday morning.

Police seek suspect in blast near Santa Monica synagogue

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Police seek suspect in blast near Santa Monica synagogue 09 Apr 2011 A blast outside a Los Angeles-area synagogue this week was caused by an explosive device and police on Saturday were looking for a suspect, authorities said. The explosion on Thursday near the Chabad House in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Monica injured no one and was blamed by police that day on a mechanical failure. The blast sent a pipe hurtling through the air and crashing onto an apartment building next to the synagogue.

Santa Monica synagogue explosion caused by unusual type of device, authorities say

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Santa Monica synagogue explosion caused by unusual type of device, authorities say 09 Apr 2011 First it was believed to be a bomb, then it was dismissed as a freak industrial accident, and now authorities are again saying that the explosion last week near a Santa Monica synagogue was, most likely, deliberately planned. Part of the confusion, authorities say, was connected to the device itself: An explosive layered under hundreds of pounds of concrete poured into a trash bin is not something bomb technicians typically encounter. Thursday's blast sent a 300-pound metal pipe encased in concrete crashing through the roof of a home next door to Chabad House on 17th Street, near Broadway.

House Votes Against 'Net Neutrality'

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

House Votes Against 'Net Neutrality' 09 Apr 2011 The GOP-controlled House of Representatives approved a measure on Friday that would prohibit the Federal Communications Commission from regulating how Internet service providers manage their broadband networks, potentially overturning a central initiative of the F.C.C. chairman, Julius Genachowski. The action, which is less likely to pass the Senate and which President Obama has threatened to veto, is nevertheless significant because it puts half of the legislative branch on the same side of the debate as the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in restricting the F.C.C.'s authority over Internet service.

April 9, 2011 by legitgov

Report Says Coast Guard Was Unprepared for Oil Spill --The review, completed in January, was quietly made public by the Coast Guard last month. 09 Apr 2011 An internal review of the Coast Guard's performance during the BP oil spill cleanup last year has concluded that the agency was caught badly unprepared and that the response operation was dogged from the beginning by significant planning failures. The report, which was commissioned by the Coast Guard, found that the agency’s preparedness for environmental crises had "atrophied over the past decade" as the guard confronted its expanded security responsibilities in the post-9/11 world.

'Claims RAF struck rebel oil pipeline are absolutely false' - British leader

April 9, 2011 by legitgov

'Claims RAF struck rebel oil pipeline are absolutely false,' says British leader --Nato refuses to apologise for 'friendly fire' air strike that killed 13 rebels --09 Apr 2011 Nato yesterday refused to apologise for an air strike that left 13 rebels dead and many more wounded... He also dismissed claims from the Gaddafi government that British warplanes had targeted the Sarir oilfield in Sirte, killing civilian workers and damaging a pipeline which the opposition had hoped to use to export oil to finance their uprising. In fact, it was Libyan government forces that attacked the oil facility with the aim of cutting supplies to rebel stronghold Tobruk, he said. 'I can assure you that this is absolutely false,' said the Rear Admiral. [I -- and the whole world, except for the delusional sociopaths aka US Congress/Obama -- call *bullsh*t.*]

After days of tense negotiations and partisan quarrelling, House Republicans came to preliminary terms with the White House and Senate Democrats over financing the government for the next six months. Although both sides compromised, Republicans were able to force significant spending concessions from Democrats in exchange from putting to rest some of the vexing social policy fights that had held up the agreement.

The secret memo, published in a report by the Center for Public Integrity, showed that the 'journalist,' who worked for ABC News at the time, contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the evening of the bombing. The memo said that the ABC journalist had "multiple contacts" with the FBI between 1995 and 1996, and had been assigned an informant number.

AP: Terror suspects held weeks in secret --The most secretive of roughly 20 temporary sites is run by the military's elite counterterrorism unit, the Joint Special Operations Command, at Bagram Air Base. 07 Apr 2011 Suspected terrorists are still being held under hazy circumstances with uncertain rights in secret, military-run jails across Afghanistan, where they can be interrogated for weeks without charge, according to U.S. officials who revealed details of the top-secret network to The Associated Press. The Pentagon has previously denied operating secret jails in Afghanistan, although human rights groups and former detainees have described the facilities. U.S. officials told the AP that detainees can be held at the temporary jails for up to nine weeks, depending on the value of information they produce.

April 9, 2011 by legitgov

Elections agency to review Wisconsin vote-count flip 08 Apr 2011 Wisconsin's top elections agency said Friday it would review a county clerk's 'discovery' of more than 14,000 votes in the state's photo-finish Supreme Court election, a total that appeared to decisively tip the race to the conservative incumbent and continue the partisan battles that have dominated the state for months. The challenger, Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg, declared victory Wednesday after the unofficial tally showed her with a 204-vote lead. Then Kathy Nickolaus, the clerk of conservative Waukesha County, said Thursday she had forgotten [?!?] to include the county's second-largest city's votes in the initial tally. The incumbent, Justice David Prosser, received a net gain of 7,582 votes.

April 9, 2011 by legitgov

Agreement to Avert Govt Shutdown After Democrats Surrender $38.5B in Cuts --'Historic' deal to avoid government shutdown 08 Apr 2011 President Barack Obama and congressional leaders forged a last-minute agreement late Friday night on a deal to cut about $38 billion in spending and avert the first federal government shutdown in 15 years. Obama hailed the deal, a bit more than an hour before a midnight deadline, as "the biggest annual spending cut in history," and Republican House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said that over the next decade it would cut government spending by $500 billion. "This is historic, what we've done," said the third man in the talks, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. [Yeah, no party in history - led by the biggest sell-out/prevaricator on God's green earth - has ever *bent over* as deeply as the Democrats. This is just the opening salvo by the Teabaggers - eliminating Medicare is next. No worries: Obama will cave on everything else his Koch brother/GOP overlords demand after all the brouhaha dies down. --LRP]
