Michael Steele: Afghanistan is "War of Obama's Choosing"

Michael Steele: Afghanistan is "War of Obama's Choosing" 02 Jun 2010 Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele suggested at a Connecticut fundraiser that Afghanistan is "a war of Obama's choosing" despite the fact that it began years before the president took office. As criticism of his comments grew Friday, Steele issued a statement saying that he supported the U.S. troops, but did not address his factual mistake. "Well if he's such a student of history, has he not understood that, you know, that's the one thing you don't do is engage in a land war in Afghanistan," Steele says of the president. "Alright? Because everyone who has tried over a thousand years of history has failed. And there are reasons for that. There are other ways to engage in Afghanistan without committing more troops." [*Exactly.*]

'No apology for attack on flotilla'

'No apology for attack on flotilla' 03 Jul 2010 Israel has ruled out any formal apology for the May 31 attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that left nine Turkish activists dead. In a meeting with Israeli Trade Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer in Brussels on Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu reiterated Ankara's demands that Israel apologize for the deadly attack on the Turkish-owned ship Mavi Marmara, offer compensation to the victims, agree to an international investigation, and end the blockade of Gaza.

Court sides with Schwarzenegger's minimum-wage plan

Court sides with Schwarzenegger's minimum-wage plan 02 Jul 2010 With paychecks for 200,000 state employees hanging in the balance, an appellate court Friday cleared the way for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to slash workers' pay to the federal minimum wage without a budget in place -- even as the state officer who actually cuts their checks said he would continue to defy the order. Soon after the 3rd District Court of Appeal issued its ruling, State Controller John Chiang said he would appeal to the state Supreme Court before complying with Schwarzenegger's Thursday order to cut hourly pay to $7.25

Polar bear overseer: few tools to stop melting ice

Polar bear overseer: few tools to stop melting ice 26 Jun 2010 Polar bear policy in America can be summed up succinctly: The iconic bears are threatened with extinction, and so far nothing much is being done. Two years after they were listed under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken no major action in response to their principal threat, the loss of sea ice habitat due to climate change. Federal officials have declared that the Endangered Species Act will not be used in the attempt to regulate greenhouse gases, which contribute to global warming and melting ice in the Arctic Ocean.

Payrolls in U.S. Fall 125,000; Jobless Rate at 9.5%

Payrolls in U.S. Fall 125,000; Jobless Rate at 9.5% 02 Jun 2010 Employment fell in June for the first time this year, reflecting a drop in federal census workers and a smaller-than-forecast gain in private hiring. The pace of hiring signals it will take years for the world’s largest economy to recover the more than 8 million jobs lost during the recession that began in December 2007. The turmoil in financial markets brought on by the European debt crisis raises the risk that employment will slow, depriving American households of the income needed to maintain spending.

Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert Warns of Terrorist Babies

Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, said on the floor of Congress last week that terror cells are plotting to breed future terrorists inside the United States. "It appeared they would have young women who became pregnant [and] would get them into the United States to have a baby. They wouldn't even have to pay anything for the baby," Gohmert said. "And then they would return back where they could be raised and coddled as future terrorists. And then one day, 20, 30 years down the road, they can be sent in to help destroy our way of life."

AP: Millions of swine flu vaccine doses to be burned

AP: Millions of swine flu vaccine doses to be burned --More than 43 percent of the supply for the U.S. public will have gone to waste. 01 Jul 2010 About a quarter of the swine flu vaccine produced for the U.S. public has expired -- meaning that a whopping 40 million doses worth about $260 million are being written off as trash. The outdated vaccine, some of which expired Wednesday, will be incinerated. The amount, as much as four times the usual leftover seasonal flu vaccine, likely sets a record. And that's not even all of it. About 30 million more doses will expire later and may go unused, according to one government estimate. [Right, no one wanted their mercury-laden, squalene-filled pharmaterrorists' sh*t.]

NASA Flight Director Confirms 9/11 Aircraft Speed As "Elephant In the Room"

NASA Flight Director Confirms 9/11 Aircraft Speed As "Elephant In the Room" By Pilots For 9/11 Truth 22 Jun 2010 Recently, Pilots For 9/11 Truth have analyzed the speeds reported for the aircraft utilized on 9/11. Numerous aviation experts have voiced their concerns regarding the extremely excessive speeds reported above Maximum Operating for the 757 and 767, particularly, United and American Airlines 757/767 Captains who have actual flight time in all 4 aircraft reportedly used on 9/11. These experts state the speeds are impossible to achieve near sea level in thick air if the aircraft were a standard 757/767 as reported. Combined with the fact the airplane which was reported to strike the south tower of the World Trade Center was also producing high G Loading while turning and pulling out from a dive, the whole issue becomes incomprehensible to fathom a standard 767 can perform such maneuvers at such intense speeds exceeding Maximum Operating limits of the aircraft.

Formaldehyde-laden trailers we can believe in: Banned Trailers Return for Latest Gulf Disaster 01 Jul 2010 In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, they became a symbol of the government’s inept response to that disaster: the 120,000 or so trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to people who had lost their homes.

Some of the trailers, though, are getting a second life amid the latest disaster here -- as living quarters for workers involved with the cleanup of the oil spill.
