"Hope-and-Change," A Hoax

"Hope-and-Change," A Hoax By Michael Rectenwald and Lori Price, 27 May 2010 In our encounters on various social networking sites and political blogs, we consistently encounter the faithful remnants of the "hope-and-change" believers. To combat the onslaught of evidence and opinion that leads one to the conclusion that Obama is a fraud at best and represents a hoax at worst, they point to lists of his accomplishments and the ways he has delivered on his campaign promises. Such lists, we believe, are generally misrepresentations and fail to rise to the level of credibility. They are misleading because they represent minor deeds that might very well have been accomplished otherwise... There are some notable changes, but are they commensurate with Obama’s euphuistic campaign rhetoric? We think not.

AP: New, giant sea oil plume seen in Gulf

AP: New, giant sea oil plume seen in Gulf 27 May 2010 Marine scientists have discovered a massive new plume of what they believe to be oil deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico, stretching 22 miles from the leaking wellhead northeast toward Mobile Bay, Alabama. The discovery by researchers on the University of South Florida College of Marine Science's Weatherbird II vessel is the second significant undersea plume recorded since the Deepwater Horizon exploded on April 20.

New Flu Vaccines Could Protect Against All Strains

New Flu Vaccines Could Protect Against All Strains [that they create] 26 May 2010 A new vaccine may be able to provide some protection against all strains of influenza. Current immunizations create antibodies that target a specific piece of a molecule on the surface of the virus that researchers call its "head." That piece of the hemaglutinin protein evolves very quickly... The next-generation vaccine causes antibodies to go after a piece of the hemaglutinin that changes less often and that is present in many influenza strains. Researchers are calling them "headless HA" vaccines, and they could be the key to a universal flu shot. [Instead of 'headless HA,' they should call it 'brainless HAHA - no thanks.' --LRP]

Iraq PM details 'several' assassination attempts

Iraq PM details 'several' assassination attempts 26 May 2010 Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki claimed in remarks released Wednesday that he had escaped several assassination attempts, including one where insurgents [Blackwater?] tried to shoot down his plane. "There have been several attempts," Maliki told London-based Arabic newspaper Al-Hayat, according to a transcript of the interview released by his office.

Terror Attacks Against U.S. At All-Time High

Terror Attacks Against U.S. At All-Time High --DHS Report Says Pace May Increase And Include More Homegrown Extremists 26 May 2010 The pace and number of attempted terror attacks against the U.S. over the past nine months has surpassed the number of attempts during any previous one-year period, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security report issued on Friday, May 21. The report notes chillingly that while US officials "lack insights" they believe that "operatives are in the country and could advance plotting with little or no warning."

BP attempts 'top kill' to plug devastating oil leak

BP attempts 'top kill' to plug devastating oil leak 26 May 2010 Energy giant BP began a high-stakes operation Wednesday to plug a ruptured oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, shooting heavy drilling fluid known as "mud" into a stack of damaged pipes on the sea floor in the hope of sealing a leak that has been gushing crude for 37 days. In a statement Wednesday evening, BP CEO Tony Hayward said the "top kill" operation was "proceeding as planned." U.S. Coast Guard officials gave BP approval to start the "top kill" procedure as President Barack Obama expressed cautious optimism about its chances of success.

British soldier killed in southern Afghanistan

British soldier killed in southern Afghanistan 26 May 2010 A British soldier has been killed in southern Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence said today. The serviceman, from 4th Regiment the Royal Artillery, died after being shot in a fight with insurgents in the Nahr-e Saraj area of Helmand province this morning. The Ministry of Defence said the soldier was conducting a joint foot patrol with the Afghan national army when he was shot.

US prison in Afghanistan to hold first 'trial'

US prison in Afghanistan to hold first 'trial' 26 May 2010 The main U.S. prison [on the edge of Bagram Air Field] in Afghanistan is less than a week away from holding a 'trial.' On June 1, a detainee prisoner will stand with a lawyer and plead his case in front of an Afghan judge, said Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, the deputy commander for detention operations. His remark came during a tour of the prison Tuesday for a handful of Afghan lawmakers who have been critical of U.S. detention practices.

BP Used Riskier Method to Seal Oil Well Before Blast

BP Used Riskier Method to Seal Oil Well Before Blast 26 May 2010  Several days before the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, BP officials chose, partly for financial reasons, to use a type of casing for the well that the company knew was the riskier of two options, according to a BP document. The concern with the method BP chose, the document said, was that if the cement around the casing pipe did not seal properly, gases could leak all the way to the wellhead, where only a single seal would serve as a barrier... Workers from the rig and company officials have said that hours before the explosion, gases were leaking through the cement, which had been set in place by the oil services contractor, Halliburton. Investigators have said these leaks were the likely cause of the explosion.

440 birds, 393 of them dead

440 birds, 393 of them dead --Oil spill's BP's animal victims struggle as experts fear a mounting toll 27 May 2010 In the Louisiana marsh, oil-coated pelicans flap their wings in a futile attempt to dry them. A shorebird repeatedly dunks its face in a puddle, unable to wash off. Lines of dead jellyfish float in the gulf, traces of oil visible in their clear "bells." Now that oil from the Gulf of Mexico's vast spill has come ashore -- in some places, as thick as soft fudge -- it is causing serious damage in one of the country's great natural nurseries. In nature, oil is a versatile killer. It smothers the tiny animals that make up a coral reef. It suffocates blades of marsh grass, cutting them off from air and sunlight. It clumps up a bird's feathers, leaving it unable to fly; then, trying to remove the oil, birds swallow it.

Oil spill hits over 100 miles of Louisiana coast-gov

Oil spill hits over 100 miles of Louisiana coast-gov 26 May 2010 More than 100 miles (160 km) of Louisiana's coast have already been affected by oil from the massive spill in the Gulf of Mexico, state governor Bobby Jindal (R) said on Wednesday. He criticized BP and the federal authorities for a response he called "too little, too late", saying his state needed more protective boom and oil skimming ships to protect its coastline. "More than 100 miles of our shoreline have already been impacted by this oil spill," Jindal told reporters, in comments carried live by CNN. [Yes, but Bobby Jindal, the whiny little hypocritical maggot, would have also yelped if the federal government seized operations from BP. --LRP]

CIA considered faking Saddam Hussein sex video

CIA considered faking Saddam Hussein sex video 26 May 2010 Unnamed former officers told the Washington Post it was one of a number of outlandish plans thought up to discredit the Iraqi dictator before the 2003 American-led invasion. "It would look like it was taken by a hidden camera," said one. "Very grainy, like it was a secret videotaping of a sex session." Another scheme was to break into Iraqi television stations with a bogus news bulletin in which a Saddam lookalike would announce that he was stepping down.

NORAD test flights set in Fargo area

NORAD test flights set in Fargo area 26 May 2010 The North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct exercise flights today in the skies in the vicinity of Minneapolis and Duluth, Minn., to Fargo. The flights will take place in the early afternoon, and people may hear and see NORAD fighter aircraft in close proximity with Department of Defense-contracted general aviation aircraft as they practice intercept and identification procedures.

NY, PA to see military flights as NORAD conducts exercises

NY, PA to see military flights as NORAD conducts exercises 26 May 2010 The skies over parts of New York and Pennsylvania will be buzzing with warplanes later this morning as the military conducts training. A-10 jets from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) will practice intercepting non-military aircraft. The planes that the fighter jets will intercept are "general aviation aircraft" hired by the U.S. Department of Defense.

Somali terror member may be heading to Texas

Somali terror member may be heading to Texas 26 May 2010 U.S. Homeland Security officials have asked Houston authorities to watch for a member of a Somalia-based terror group who may be coming to Texas through Mexico. The federal department issued an alert last week for a suspected member of the al-Shabaab group, which has declared allegiance to 'al-Qaida.' The alert was issued after federal prosecutors in San Antonio added new charges earlier this month against a 24-year-old Somali man, Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane, who had been picked up in Brownsville in 2008.

Obama to Seek GOP Support for War Funding Bill

Obama to Seek GOP Support for War Funding Bill 24 May 2010 President Obama is expected to try to build support for a war spending measure during a rare meeting with Senate Republicans, GOP aides said Monday. Obama called Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky on May 21 asking to attend the Republicans’ weekly, closed-door policy lunch on Tuesday and McConnell agreed. Obama is expected to make the case for Republicans to support the $58.8 billion war spending bill, which includes funding for 'disaster relief' and summer jobs programs.

Arrest Terror Suspect Tony Hayward - No Miranda Rights

Arrest Terror Suspect Tony Hayward - No Miranda Rights By Lori Price, 26 May 2010 BP Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward is the lead suspect in eleven homicides and the suspected architect of the largest act of terrorism on US land and sea... After his arrest, the US needs to invoke the 'public safety' exception. Therefore, Hayward will not be allowed access to an attorney and his arraignment will be delayed, until he details his full complicity with al-CITIduh (2000 - 2003) and the Bilderberg Group.

Toxic Oil Spill Rains Warned Could Destroy North America

Toxic Oil Spill Rains Warned Could Destroy North America 24 May 2010 A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with "total destruction". Russian scientists are basing their apocalyptic destruction assessment due to BP’s use of millions of gallons of the chemical dispersal agent known as Corexit 9500 which is being pumped directly into the leak of this wellhead over a mile under the Gulf of Mexico waters and designed, this report says, to keep hidden from the American public the full, and tragic, extent of this leak that is now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day.

Israelis open fire on Gaza workers

Israelis open fire on Gaza workers 26 May 2010 Hours after 16 people were wounded by Israeli warplanes; Israeli soldiers have opened fire on Palestinians, wounding three workers in the Gaza Strip. The incident happened in the northern parts of the coastal strip on Wednesday, a Press TV correspondent reported. The Palestinians were collecting scrap metal when Israeli forces opened fire from their check point on the Gaza border.

Signs of trouble evident hour before oil rig explosion

Signs of trouble evident hour before oil rig explosion 25 May 2010 Oil company BP had three indications of trouble aboard the doomed drill rig Deepwater Horizon in the hour before the April 20 explosion that sank the offshore platform, congressional investigators reported Tuesday. Witnesses reported the well was spurting liquid and pressure tests indicated "a very large abnormality" was occurring aboard the rig, according to a memo released by the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Tuesday afternoon... The well unexpectedly spouted fluid three times in the 51 minutes before the explosion and pressure on the drill pipe "unexpectedly increased" before the blast, the memo states.

Obama administration defends BP response to oil spill disaster

Obama administration defends BP response to oil spill disaster By Andre Damon 25 May 2010 Amid growing popular anger over BP’s disastrous response to the gulf coast oil spill, the Obama administration came to the company’s defense on Monday, while again rejecting any federal takeover of the response. Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen defended BP’s actions at a White House press conference on Monday, calling them "rational." Allen said that he could not see any reason why the federal government should take over the response to the oil spill. Allen said that he was "satisfied with the coordination that is going on," and that BP is "exhausting every technical response" to the leak. He added that "There’s no reason to make a change" to the official response to the oil spill. When asked to clarify whether BP or the US government was in charge of the cleanup, Allen said that the two were working in "partnership."

Baghdad gold market raids leaves 15 dead

Blackwater is a busy little bee! Baghdad gold market raids leaves 15 dead --Jewellery shops' staff, bystanders and a robber killed as gunmen target gold stores with assault rifles, bombs and RPGs 25 May 2010 At least 15 people have been killed after masked men armed with rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles opened fire in a mass raid on a busy jewellery market in Baghdad today. About 10 gunmen rampaged through a street lined with gold shops in the Bayaa district, south-west of the capital. They launched grenades and made off with gold and money after firing at shopkeepers.

Polar Bears Face "Tipping Point"

Polar Bears Face "Tipping Point" By Kieran Mulvaney 25 May 2010 Polar bear populations are unlikely to decrease steadily and predictably as their sea ice habitat shrinks and thins due to climate change, says a new study by Canadian scientists. Rather, numbers are likely to decline gradually and then suddenly fall off a cliff as the bears reach a "tipping point" in relation to their deteriorating environment. The reason polar bears have frequently been held up as the iconic species of climate change is that their survival is intimately and inextricably linked to sea ice. As Arctic sea ice declines in extent and thickness, the species' ongoing viability, at least in some areas of its range, is a cause for concern.

Israel planes raid Gaza, hover

Israel planes raid Gaza, hover 25 May 2010 Israeli warplanes carry out multiple raids on the southern parts of the Gaza Strip, raising the prospects of more airstrikes as they hover over the coastal sliver. The Tuesday attacks targeted tunnels near a disused airport in the city of Rafah, a Press TV correspondent reported.

Hamas calls Flotilla threats terrorism

Hamas calls Flotilla threats terrorism 25 May 2010 The Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, has condemned Israeli threats against a multinational Gaza-bound aid convoy, Freedom Flotilla. The fleet, consisting of nine vessels from Turkey, Ireland, Britain and Greece, is on its way to break the Israeli siege of the Gaza Strip. It carries around 10,000 tons of construction material, medical equipment and school supplies, as well as around 750 activists. Israeli authorities have vowed to throttle the relief. Israeli media have also warned that the activists were to be put under arrest.

Proposal to lift ban on gays in military in doubt

Proposal to lift ban on gays in military in doubt 25 May 2010 A lukewarm endorsement from Defense Secretary Robert Gates and opposition among some lawmakers cast doubt Tuesday on whether Congress this week would lift a 17-year-old ban on gays serving openly in the military. Gay rights' groups predicted that the bill might pass the House but face a tough road in the Senate.

Oil reaches Louisiana shores

Oil reaches Louisiana shores 24 May 2010 Over one month after the initial explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, crude oil continues to flow into the Gulf of Mexico, and oil slicks have slowly reached as far as 12 miles into Louisiana's marshes. (Photos)

Deepwater Horizon survivors allege they were kept in seclusion after rig explosion, coerced into signing legal waivers

Deepwater Horizon survivors allege they were kept in seclusion after rig explosion, coerced into signing legal waivers 21 May 2010 According to two surviving crew members of the Deepwater Horizon, oil workers from the rig were held in seclusion on the open water for up to two days after the April 20 explosion, while attorneys attempted to convince them to sign legal documents stating that they were unharmed by the incident. The men claim that they were forbidden from having any contact with concerned loved ones during that time, and were told they would not be able to go home until they signed the documents with which they were presented.

Obama to inspect Gulf Coast oil spill Friday

Useless is as useless does: Obama to inspect Gulf Coast oil spill Friday 25 May 2010 President Obama will travel to Louisiana's Gulf Coast on Friday to inspect damage from the oil spill gusher. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs confirms that Obama will take a break from a Memorial Day weekend holiday trip to Chicago to make the trip. This will be Obama's second visit to the region since last month's explosion and sinking of oil giant BP's Deepwater Horizon rig.
