GMO Crop Sabotage on the Rise: French citizens destroy trial vineyard By Rady Ananda  16 Aug 2010 Early Sunday morning, French police stood helpless as sixty people, locked inside an open-air field of genetically modified grapevines, uprooted all the plants... Speaking for the group, Olivier Florent told Le Figero that they condemned the use of public funds for open-field testing of GMOs "that we do not want." Pitching tents in the rain near France’s National Institute for Agronomic Research (INRA) site in Colmar the night before, the group waited until 5 AM before converging on the site and locking the gates behind them. They uprooted all 70 plants, then submitted to arrest. [Why submit to arrest? The CEOciopath of Monsanto should have been arrested, not the saboteurs. --LRP]

The right's latest weapon: 'Zionist editing' on Wikipedia

The right's latest weapon: 'Zionist editing' on Wikipedia 18 Aug 2010 For years now, Wikipedia has been a fierce battleground between the Israeli right and left. One key battle was over the entry for Bil'in and whether the weekly struggle at that village near the security fence should be described as violent...  Now the Yesha Council of settlements and another right-wing group, Israel Sheli, are embarking on a Wikipedia battle: Zionist editing on the Web-based encyclopedia. The first course was held yesterday in Jerusalem. "The idea is not to make Wikipedia rightist but for it to include our point of view," said Naftali Bennett, the director of the Yesha Council.

Feds: Alaska couple had 20 names on hit list

Feds: Alaska couple had 20 names on hit list 16 Aug 2010 A rural Alaska couple accused of domestic terrorism compiled a hit list of 20 targets, including members of the military and media, and had moved to the operational phase of their plan, according to documents filed in federal court Monday. Paul and Nadia Rockwood of King Salmon have pleaded guilty to lying about the list and making false statements to the FBI in May. Under a plea agreement, Paul Rockwood will serve eight years in prison and three years probation while his pregnant wife will serve probation. Rockwood's public defender claims her client was lonely in King Salmon and befriended an undercover Alaska State Trooper while attending mosque during trips to Anchorage. "The relationship clearly was fed by the trooper's interest in Mr. Rockwood and the drama created by their conversations," his attorney, Sue Ellen Tatter, wrote in her sentencing memo.

Blagojevich Found Guilty of Single Count by Divided Jury 18 Aug 2010 Rod R. Blagojevich, the ousted former governor of Illinois, was convicted on Tuesday of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but the jury in the corruption case against him also reported that it was hopelessly deadlocked on the 23 other counts against him. The jury’s findings, which came on the 14th day of deliberations, were seen as a victory for Mr. Blagojevich and his defense team and a significant setback for federal authorities, who arrested Mr. Blagojevich almost two years ago to stop what they described unambiguously as “a political corruption crime spree,” including attempts to sell the appointment to fill the Senate seat once held by Barack Obama.

At that point, John Bolton warned Monday, it will be too late for Israel to launch a military strike against the facility because any attack would spread radiation and affect Iranian civilians.

Bolivia begins military training for civilians

Bolivia begins military training for civilians 05 Aug 2010 Bolivia's leftist government said Thursday it has begun military training for civilians at army barracks in what the opposition called a first step toward creating pro-government militias.

Ga. scientists: Gulf oil not gone, 80 pct remains

Ga. scientists: Gulf oil not gone, 80 pct remains --Earlier this month federal scientists said that only about a quarter of the oil remained and the rest was either removed, dissolved or dispersed. 16 Aug 2010 Georgia scientists say their analysis shows that most of that BP oil the government said was gone from the Gulf of Mexico is still there. The scientists say as much as 80 percent of the oil still lurks under the surface. The Georgia team said it is a misinterpretation of data to claim that oil that is dissolved is actually gone.

Sen. Harry Reid Breaks With Obama Over 'Ground Zero Mosque'

Sen. Harry Reid Breaks With Obama Over 'Ground Zero Mosque' --President Obama's Support for Islamic Center Opened Door to Republican Assault 16 Aug 2010 President Obama's staunchest ally in the Senate broke with the president today over the controversial Islamic center planned for a site near Ground Zero, and said he is opposed to its construction. The office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada issued a statement saying, "The First Amendment protects freedom of religion. Senator Reid respects that, but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else." Reid's comments came just days after Obama told a White House gathering that Muslims had a right to build the mosque, and Republicans vowed to make the president's stand an issue in the November elections. [Yes, go run under the couch and hide, Reid. People would rather vote for candidates who advocate 'Second Amendment remedies' than cowardly, pathetic, sycophantic trolls. No, I'm not a Sharron Angle advocate - save your emails. I am merely making the point that people would rather stand with those who don't cower in the face of GOP-owned-and-driven media hysteria. --LRP]

The Decrepit Character of the "Professional Left"

The Decrepit Character of the "Professional Left" --In its ignorance, the "professional left" disavows the real left. Mr. Gibbs, with enemies like this, who needs friends? By Dr. Rec 17 Aug 2010 According to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, the professional left is supposedly President Barack Obama’s dreaded enemy, apparently more so than the professional right, whom he works consistently to assuage. To the professional left, Gibbs and company offer no apologies. But what is there to fear in this "professional left?" Is it the dreaded critical monster that the glib Gibbs has made it out to be?

Iraq plunges into darkness and fuel queues make comeback

Iraq plunges into darkness and fuel queues make comeback 14 Aug 2010 Iraq's national grid is out and millions of Iraqis are without electricity amid scorching heat. Iraqi provinces, apart from the three Kurdish provinces in the north, have plunged into darkness. The reason, according to the Electricity Ministry, is excessive use of electricity. The ministry says many provinces have been 'encroaching' on the national grid, using more megawatts than their 'legal' allocations. [Isn't this the same electric grid that the US taxpayers have funded and refunded about 600 times as part of the contractors' stimulus in Iraq?]
