Scott Brown Supporter From Ad Calls Elizabeth Warren 'D*****bag,' Obama a 'Muslim' On Facebook

October 20, 2012 by legitgov

Language warning: Scott Brown Supporter From Ad Calls Elizabeth Warren 'D*****bag,' Obama a 'Muslim' On Facebook 19 Oct 2012 Scott Brown recently got in hot water for falsely claiming that his Senate race opponent, Elizabeth Warren, was using paid actors in her commercials... In a television advertisement running as recently this week, Sen. Scott Brown's (R-Mass.) reelection campaign featured a union construction worker whose publicly accessible Facebook page is riddled with insults against Brown's Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren and President Barack Obama. On one post made in August, well before Brown's ad appeared, the worker, George Patriarca, calls Warren a "DOUCHEBAG." On another he labels the president a "faggot," and on a third he says, "there is a Muslim in the White House." [Mere distraction from the right-wing to provide cover for the fact that Obama is a corporate, military and imperialist shill.--MDR]

Gallup vs. the World

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

Gallup vs. the World By Nate Silver 18 Oct 2012 The Gallup national tracking poll now shows a very strong lead for Mitt Romney. As of Wednesday, he was ahead by six points among likely voters. Mr. Romney's advantage grew further, to seven points, when Gallup updated its numbers on Thursday afternoon. The Gallup poll is accounted for in the forecast model, along with all other state and national surveys. However, its results are deeply inconsistent with the results that other polling firms are showing in the presidential race, and the Gallup poll has a history of performing very poorly when that is the case... Usually, when a poll is an outlier relative to the consensus, its results turn out badly. [Democrats attempting to discredit pollsters -- a sign that things are not going their way! Either way, we lose. Who cares about one poll or even the "results" of a legitimating process for the ruling elite? -- MDR]

Officials used material stored on the computer to trace it back to Mr. Carter.

Navy to go after rats, mold in Gitmo legal offices [Too bad they don't go after the actual RATS behind the 9/11 terror attacks aka inside job, six ways to Sunday. --LRP] 19 Oct 2012 Legal offices that are so contaminated with mold and rat droppings that lawyers in the Sept. 11 terrorism trial have been getting sick [that's by design, obviously] will get a full clean-up and be evaluated by safety experts, a military official said Thursday.

Michael Lebowitz, one of the prosecutors in the case of five prisoners charged in the Sept. 11 attacks.

U.S. Navy, Allies Find Less Than Half the Sea Mines Planted in Key Exercise

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Navy, Allies Find Less Than Half the Sea Mines Planted in Key Exercise 15 Oct 2012 A major international naval exercise last month in and around the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea, led by the U.S. Navy with more than 30 other nations participating, located fewer than half of the [29] practice mines laid at sea. This outcome of the highly publicized military drills -- not publicly known until now -- underscores how difficult it may be for the United States and its partners to detect and incapacitate waterborne explosive devices that Iran has threatened to plant if its nuclear facilities come under attack. The drill, dubbed International Mine Countermeasures Exercise 2012 or IMCMEX, brought together countries from all over the world at a time when tensions with Iran have been heating up exacerbated by the US and Israel.

Iraq records huge rise in birth defects

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

Iraq records huge rise in birth defects 18 Oct 2012 It played unwilling host to one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq war. Fallujah's homes and businesses were left shattered; hundreds of Iraqi civilians were killed. Its residents changed the name of their "City of Mosques" to "the polluted city" after the United States launched two massive military campaigns eight years ago. Now, one month before the World Health Organisation reveals its view on the legacy of the two battles for the town, a new study reports a "staggering rise" in birth defects among Iraqi children conceived in the aftermath of the war. High rates of miscarriage, toxic levels of lead and mercury contamination and spiralling numbers of birth defects ranging from congenital heart defects to brain dysfunctions and malformed limbs have been recorded... Similar defects have been found among children born in Basra after British troops invaded, according to the new research.

NY appeals court rules DOMA unconstitutional

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

NY appeals court rules DOMA unconstitutional 18 Oct 2012 A federal appeals court in New York ruled Thursday that the federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. The ruling, by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is the second decision by a court to rule DOMA as unconstitutional, according to The Associated Press. The controversial law, which went into effect in 1996, defines marriage as the legal union between one man and one woman. Under the law, the federal government does not recognize same-sex marriages conducted in states that have legalized same-sex and civil unions. The Manhattan court's decision upholds a previous ruling by a lower court on the law. The latest decision came from a trio of judges who said the law is in conflict with equal-protection laws.

Mitt Romney's Bailout Bonanza

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

Mitt Romney's Bailout Bonanza 17 Oct 2012 By Greg Palast Mitt Romney's opposition to the auto bailout has haunted him on the campaign trail, especially in Rust Belt states like Ohio. There, in September, the Obama campaign launched television ads blasting Romney's November 2008 New York Times op-ed, "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt." But Romney has done a good job of concealing, until now, the fact that he and his wife, Ann, personally gained at least $15.3 million from the bailout--and a few of Romney's most important Wall Street donors made more than $4 billion. Their gains, and the Romneys', were astronomical--more than 3,000 percent on their investment.

CIA proposes to expand fleet of armed drones, officials say --Move would transform CIA into full-blown paramilitary force 18 Oct 2012 The CIA is urging the White House to approve a significant expansion of the agency’s fleet of armed drones, a move that would extend the spy service's decade-long transformation into a paramilitary force, U.S. officials said. The proposal by CIA Director David H. Petraeus would bolster the agency's ability to sustain its campaigns of lethal strikes in Pakistan and Yemen and be able, if directed, to shift aircraft to emerging al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] threats in North Africa or other trouble spots, officials said. If approved, the CIA could add as many as 10 drones, the officials said, to an inventory that has ranged between 30 and 35 over the past few years.

Colorado shooting: D.A. to see alleged gunman's school records 17 Oct 2012 A judge in the case against James E. Holmes ruled Wednesday that most of the mass murder suspect's academic records, his campus police file and some communication with University of Colorado Denver professors can be given to the prosecution to show state of mind and possible motive. Holmes, 24, was considered a promising doctoral student in the university's elite neuroscience graduate program before he withdrew about six weeks before the July 20 Aurora theater massacre. Twelve people died and at least 58 were wounded when Holmes allegedly opened fire in a packed movie theater during a post-midnight premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises." He faces 166 charges, including two first-degree murder charges for each person killed. [See: Aurora, Colorado Shooting 'Oddities' By Lori Price.]

Feds win round in CIA leak case

October 18, 2012 by legitgov

Feds win round in CIA leak case 17 Oct 2012 Prosecutors pursuing former CIA officer John Kiriakou for allegedly leaking the identities of two other CIA officers involved in interrogating terror suspects need not prove that Kiriakou intended to harm the United States or help a foreign nation, a federal judge ruled in an opinion made public Wednesday. The ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Leonie Brinkema is a defeat for Kiriakou's defense, which asked the judge to insist on the stronger level of proof—which likely would have been very difficult for the government to muster. In 2006, another federal judge in the same Northern Virginia courthouse, T.S. Ellis, imposed the higher requirement in a criminal case against two former lobbyists for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
