Russia Warns of Libya Conflict After Qaddafi's Death, RIA Says 20 Oct 2011 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's special envoy warned of persistent conflict in Libya even if the news of Muammar Qaddafi's death is confirmed, RIA Novosti reported.

[That's right. Actual resistance fighters will wage a battle against the US-backed mercenaries who executed a(nother) coup for Exxon Mobil and BP.]

October 21, 2011 by legitgov

Senate blocks votes on jobs bills --'Every single Republican in the United States Senate has chosen to obstruct.' 21 Oct 2011 Democrats and Republicans tried to force versions of a jobs bill through the Senate late Thursday, but both fell short of the 60 votes [due to GOP obstruction of every bill] they would have needed to bring their proposals to the floor. In a 50-50 vote, senators blocked a component of President Barack Obama's jobs bill -- $35 billion for states and localities to hire more teachers and first responders while preventing current ones from being laid off. The funding would have been paid for by a 0.5% tax increase on people earning more than $1 million a year. Republicans opposed the tax increase.

Gardakill: U.S. girls dropping dead from Gardasil vaccine --Unearthed documents reveal new deaths from 'mandated' shot 19 Oct 2011 Gardasil, the controversial drug that took the early Republican presidential debates by storm, is back in the news as newly unearthed documents reveal 26 additional deaths associated with the shot. The public-interest group Judicial Watch has obtained the documents through the Freedom of Information Act from the Food and Drug Administration detailing reports of harmful reactions to the vaccination for human papillomavirus, also known as HPV. "The adverse-reaction reports detail 26 new deaths reported between Sept. 1, 2010, and Sept. 15, 2011, as well as incidents of seizures, paralysis, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short-term memory loss and Guillain-Barré Syndrome," Judicial Watch said.

Car Company Gets U.S. Loan, Builds Cars In Finland 20 Oct 2011 With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work. Vice President Joseph Biden heralded the Energy Department's $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs. But two years after the loan was announced, the job of assembling the flashy electric Fisker Karma sports car has been outsourced to Finland.

Greenpeace slams Japan radiation screening

October 21, 2011 by legitgov

Greenpeace slams Japan radiation screening 20 Oct 2011 Greenpeace called on Tokyo to toughen radiation screening and food labelling rules on Thursday after it said low levels of radiation had been detected in seafood sold at Japanese stores. The environmental pressure group said it tested 60 seafood samples bought at stores in eastern Japan operated by five major supermarket chains and found 34 of them with radioactive caesium-134 and caesium-137. The survey discovered readings of up to 88 becquerel per kilogram (Bq/kg) with the radiation believed to be from the ongoing nuclear accident.

October 21, 2011 by legitgov

Secret CIA-FBI files of NUMEC nuclear diversions to Israel could aid $170 million toxic cleanup 20 Oct 2011 Recently declassified wiretap transcripts of conversations between Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation (NUMEC) founder Zalman Shapiro and venture capitalist David Lowenthal reveal that illegal storage practices led to a dangerous nuclear spill. Obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by IRmep's Center for Policy and Law Enforcement, the files were heavily censored by the Central Intelligence Agency which blocked release of 225 pages. The transcript details that Shapiro and Lowenthal's interest in completing NUMEC's sale to Atlantic Richfield Company outweighed public safety concerns. This week the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) $170 million cleanup of NUMEC's toxic waste dump had to be halted after contractors experienced unanticipated difficulties handling 55-gallon radioactive waste drums.

Judge dismisses lawsuit by ten members of Congress over Libya 'mission'

October 21, 2011 by legitgov

Judge dismisses lawsuit by ten members of Congress over Libya 'mission' 20 Oct 2011 A federal court on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit ten members of Congress filed in June challenging Obama's right to keep U.S. military forces in the NATO campaign that contributed to the fall of Qadhafi's government and his ultimate demise. In a 23-page opinion, U.S. District Court Judge Walton ruled that the lawmakers lacked standing to challenge the military campaign in large part because they had and have the opportunity through legislative action to shut down the Libya operation. "They have not demonstrated that they are without a legislative remedy," Walton wrote.

Lebanon: US 'plot' claim incredulous 21 Oct 2011 Lebanon's Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour has dismissed the US allegation of Tehran's involvement in a plot to assassinate the Saudi envoy to Washington, describing them as unbelievable. At a Thursday meeting in the Lebanese capital Beirut with the Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Rokn-Abadi, Mansour said that no diplomat could ever believe Washington's accusation against Iran, Mehr News Agency reported. Iran has even been denied access to Mansour Arbabsiar, the used-car dealer Washington says is behind the alleged plot. Arbabsiar has a criminal record [think CIA] and is described as hopelessly disorganized by his family and friends.

GOP debate becomes Wild West bar fight in Vegas

October 20, 2011 by legitgov

GOP debate becomes Wild West bar fight in Vegas 19 Oct 2011 In order to give the CNN Western Republican Presidential Debate a regional flair, the network created a horseshoe logo. The candidates went one better. They turned the debate in to a Wild West bar fight. It started with a scuffle over Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan, then tipped over tables in a skirmish over Mitt Romney's health care plan in Massachusetts. The candidates talked over each other, their voices escalating. They accused each other of lying. At one testy point, when Romney was lecturing Rick Perry about interrupting, he put his hand on the Texas governor's shoulder. He was trying to provoke him. Watch it, Mitt--he could be packing.

BofA Said to Split Regulators Over Moving Merrill Derivatives to Bank Unit 18 Oct 2011 Bank of America Corp., hit by a credit downgrade last month, has moved derivatives from its Merrill Lynch unit to a subsidiary flush with insured deposits, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation. The Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. disagree over the transfers, which are being requested by counterparties, said the people, who asked to remain anonymous because they weren't authorized to speak publicly. The Fed has signaled that it favors moving the derivatives to give relief to the bank holding company, while the FDIC, which would have to pay off depositors in the event of a bank failure, is objecting, said the people. The bank doesn't believe regulatory approval is needed, said people with knowledge of its position.

Iraq War Vet Shames Police at Occupy Wall Street --After observing police activity at this weekend's Occupy Wall Street protests, Sgt. Shemar Thomas says he saw better treatment of rioters in Iraq. --'This is not a war zone. They don't have guns. Why are you hurting these people?' 19 Oct 2011 As the crowds continue to swell at the Occupy Wall Street protests, so are the incidents of police brutality against the demonstrators. This weekend, however, after former U.S. Marine and Iraq war veteran Sgt. Shemar Thomas saw innocent protesters being hit with batons, he decided that enough was enough. "I saw a woman and a man getting hit with a baton. That infuriated me," he told ABC News following the incident. After becoming "infuriated," Thomas began shouting at police directly, saying, "These are unarmed people. It doesn't make you tough to hurt these people."

Iraq's Sadr calls for full US withdrawal 19 Oct 2011 The head of Iraq's Sadr movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, has called for the complete withdrawal of all American troops from the country by the end of the year. Speaking in the holy city of Najaf on Wednesday, the cleric rejected any form of US presence in the country, as Washington and Baghdad are discussing keeping a limited number of US troops as military trainers in Iraq. Sadr said the presence of US military trainers in Iraq beyond the Dec. 31 deadline is an "organized occupation".

Meet the Guy Who Snitched on Occupy Wall Street to the FBI and NYPD By Adrian Chen 15 Oct 2011 ...[T]he FBI and NYPD have had help tracking the Occupy Wall Street protesters' moves thanks to a conservative computer security expert who gained access to one of the group's internal mailing lists, and then handed over information on the group's plans to authorities and corporations targeted by protesters. Since the Occupy Wall Street protest began on September 17, New York security consultant Thomas Ryan has been waging a campaign to infiltrate and discredit the movement. Ryan says he's done contract work for the U.S. Army and he brags on his blog that he leads "a team called Black Cell, a team of the most-highly trained and capable physical, threat and cyber security professionals in the world."

Two Awlaki teenage relatives killed in Yemen attack: family 18 Oct 2011 Two relatives of an assassinated U.S.-born militant cleric who were killed in an air strike last week in southern Yemen were teenagers out for dinner with friends when they were hit, their family said in a statement on Tuesday.

"Abdel-Rahman Anwar al-Awlaki was born in the U.S. city of Denver, Colorado on 26, August 1995, and thus he is not 21 or 27-years-old, but just 16," the statement said. It added the second member of the Awlaki family killed was Ahmed Abdel-Rahman al-Awlaki, 17.

Greek refuse workers threatened with army intervention on eve of general strike By Robert Stevens 19 Oct 2011 Greece's social democratic PASOK government is preparing to use the army against striking Athens refuse workers and threatening mass arrests. The attack on the refuse workers is a pre-emptive move against the entire Greek working class ahead of today's 48-hour general strike. Late on Friday, the government of Prime Minister George Papandreou stepped up its efforts to break the refuse strike by commissioning private vehicles to begin collecting thousands of tons of trash in the capital... On Sunday evening, riot police engaged in pitched battles with workers who had been occupying Athens's main landfill site northwest of the city since the beginning of the dispute.

Military 'Not Quite Sure' How Drone Cockpits Got Infected

October 19, 2011 by legitgov

Military 'Not Quite Sure' How Drone Cockpits Got Infected 19 Oct 2011 It's been more than a month since a virus infected the remote "cockpits" of America's drone fleet. And the U.S. military still doesn't know exactly how the machines at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada got infected. "We're not quite sure how that happened yet," General Robert Kehler told reporters Tuesday. Kehler is the head of U.S. Strategic Command, which is nominally in charge of the military's Cyber Command and all other online activities. The Pentagon is ordinarily reluctant to talk about any computer security breaches; even routine infections are treated as military secrets. For example, the clean-up of a common, if widespread, worm was considered a classified mission — undertaken under the name "Operation Buckshot Yankee." [LOL! I don't know what's worse -- America's psycho drone fleet or the cast of *morons* tasked with assigning names for these loser, lunatic 'missions.' Regardless, as to whoever released the viruses and worms: Keep 'em coming! Less eight-year-olds in Pakistan will be killed in their sleep. --LRP]

Bills could require civilian authorities to turn cases involving terror suspects over to U.S. military

Bills could require civilian authorities to turn cases involving terror suspects over to U.S. military --House bill also attempts to restrict civilian oversight of detention cases --Pentagon warns against bills changing rules on detainees 19 Oct 2011 The Pentagon objected Tuesday to a move in Congress to limit the Obama administration's ability to decide how terrorism suspects are tried. Provisions of similar House and Senate bills would significantly restrict the transfer of detainees prisoners out of the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and could require civilian authorities to turn cases involving al Qaeda suspects over to the military. The proposed changes are designed to clarify the administration's ability to hold terrorism suspects and to push it to try more prisoners using military tribunals rather than civilian courts.

Citigroup to pay $285 mln in CDO civil fraud case --Citi is third major bank to settle CDO case with SEC 19 Oct 2011 Citigroup Inc will pay $285 million to settle charges that it defrauded investors who bought toxic housing-related debt that the bank bet would fail, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said on Wednesday. The SEC said the bank's Citigroup Global Markets unit misled investors about a $1 billion collateralized debt obligation by failing to reveal it had "significant influence" over the selection of $500 million of underlying assets, and that it took a short position against those assets.

"Grenade-walking" part of "Gunwalker" scandal

October 19, 2011 by legitgov

"Grenade-walking" part of "Gunwalker" scandal 14 Oct 2011 There's a new twist in the government's "gunwalking" scandal involving an even more dangerous weapon: grenades. CBS News said on "The Early Show" that the investigation into the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)'s so-called "Fast and Furious" operation branches out to a case involving grenades. Sources tell her a suspect was left to traffic and manufacture them for Mexican drug cartels. Police say Jean Baptiste Kingery, a U.S. citizen, was a veritable grenade machine. He's accused of smuggling parts for as many as 2,000 grenades into Mexico for killer drug cartels -- sometimes under the direct watch of U.S. law enforcement.

Animal welfare group gives Ohio low score in dealing with wildlife 19 Oct 2011 Even as officials on Wednesday continued their roundup of wild animals released from an Ohio preserve, animal welfare activists said that the Buckeye State has long ranked near the bottom among states dealing with dangerous wild animals.

"Ohio's Fatal Attractions," a report from the Humane Society released earlier this year, focused on facilities within that state specifically.
