Chris Christie: Keep the White House out of the cafeteria

January 18, 2016 by legitgov

LOLOL: Chris Christie: Keep the White House out of the cafeteria [Yeah, so he can eat *everything!*] | 17 Jan 2016 | If Chris Christie becomes the next president schools probably won't be required or even encouraged to serve lunches filled with fruits and vegetables. That's because Christie said he doesn't believe the president should have a say in school lunches. Those, he told voters in Council Bluffs, Iowa should be up to the parents. "Doesn't the president of the United States have anything better to do than to worry about what you are having for lunch? Let me tell you this, I don't care," Christie said Monday when 11-year-old Jacob Royal, who traveled from Nebraska to hear Christie speak, asked the New Jersey governor what he would do to make the lunches better.

No doubt cleanup at Fukushima nuclear plant radiated rice crops in 2013 - researchers | 18 Jan 2016 | Radioactive substances that contaminated rice paddies here in 2013 came from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, an international group of researchers said, rejecting a denial [lie] issued by Japan's nuclear safety authority.  The researchers, led by Akio Koizumi, a professor at Kyoto University's Graduate School of Medicine, reached the conclusion after analyzing radioactive substances and taking spot readings of radioactivity levels around Minami-Soma..."The cause of further contamination was the radioactive particles dispersed from contaminated rubble during the cleanup effort at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant," Koizumi concluded in the report.

California officials delay plans to mitigate massive gas leak | 16 Jan 2016 | Southern California air quality officials on Saturday delayed plans to capture and burn off natural gas leaking from an underground well near an affluent Los Angeles neighborhood, citing the possible risk of a fire.

The leak was first detected on Oct. 23 at an underground natural gas field in Porter Ranch, which is home to more than 30,000 people.

President Obama declares emergency in Flint over Gov. Snyder poisoning water supply | 16 Jan 2016 | (MI) President Barack Obama on Saturday declared a federal emergency in Flint, meaning federal financial aid will be available to assist with the public health crisis [entirely created and perpetuated by terrorist Rick Snyder].

January 16, 2016 by legitgov

Iran, US free prisoners as end of international sanctions nears | 17 Jan 2016 | Iran freed five Americans including a Washington Post reporter on Saturday as the two countries staged a series of goodwill gestures ahead of the expected announcement of the lifting of international sanctions against Tehran under a nuclear deal.

The ending of sanctions would bring the Middle Eastern country of 80 million people back to the global economic stage after several years away, and increase Iranian influence in a region torn by sectarian strife.

Republicans now see a Trump-Cruz race, with time for a shift running out

January 16, 2016 by legitgov

Republicans now see a Trump-Cruz race, with time for a shift running out | 16 Jan 2016 | As the presidential primary moves into a more urgent and combative phase, there is growing acceptance among Republicans, including the Washington and financial elite, that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the two candidates most likely to become the party's nominee. Their commanding performances at the sixth debate - along with their continued dominance in national and early state polls - has solidified the conclusion of many Republicans that the campaign is becoming a two-person contest. Long expected to become a race between an outsider and an establishment candidate, it is coming down instead as one between two outsiders, with dwindling time for their rivals to change the trajectory before the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1.

Saudi Arabia is buying up farmland in US Southwest | 15 Jan 2016 | [I-CIA-SIS best buds] Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf countries are scooping up farmland in drought-afflicted regions of the U.S. Southwest, and that has some people in California and Arizona seeing red.

Egregious safety failures at Army lab led to anthrax mistakes | 15 Jan 2016 | A brigadier general who led an Army biodefense lab in Utah is among a dozen individuals facing potential disciplinary actions -- including loss of jobs -- for egregious failures that contributed to the facility mistakenly [sic] shipping live anthrax to other labs for more than a decade, according to the military's accountability investigation report that was provided to USA TODAY. The review found that top officials at the Dugway Proving Ground southwest of Salt Lake City had multiple warning signs of scientific and safety problems, yet they failed to take action despite earlier, serious incidents in the facility's labs during 2007-2011 involving anthrax, VX chemical nerve agent and poisonous Botulinum neurotoxin A...The review harshly singles out Brig. Gen. William E. King IV, who was in command at Dugway as a colonel from July 2009 to July 2011. King was promoted to general after leaving Dugway. Last February, King was named the commanding general of the 20th Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive Command at the Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
