Feds: $45-million Homeland Security Cook County initiative 'failure' 09 Jan 2012 (IL) Project Shield was supposed to make citizens safer. But in the end, the $45-million Homeland Security program more resembled a disaster, wasting taxpayers' dollars and failing to make a single citizen more secure. The failed Cook County initiative was replete with equipment that failed to work, missing records and untrained first responders according to a report by the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The report, to be released Monday but obtained by The Sun-Times and NBC5 News, found "millions of tax dollars may have been wasted."

Romney attacked over record as 'job creator' at Bain Capital

January 9, 2012 by legitgov

Romney attacked over record as 'job creator' at Bain Capital 09 Jan 2012 For months, Mitt Romney has seldom been challenged on his claim that his leadership at Bain Capital LLC offers evidence that he knows how to create jobs. That has ended as his Republican rivals are accusing him of exploiting companies and firing workers in a quest to make millions. "Those of us who believe in free markets and those of us who believe that, in fact, the whole goal of investment is entrepreneurship and job creation, would find it pretty hard to justify rich people figuring out clever, legal ways to loot out a company," former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich told reporters in Manchester, New Hampshire, yesterday, ahead of the state's Jan. 10 presidential primary. [Well said, except he didn't need the word 'out' after 'loot.' And, that is exactly why the lamestream media is pushing Romney/Obusha - two Wall Street trolls/Reichwingers cut from the same cloth.]

Thin ice jeopardizes polar bears in Manitoba

Thin ice jeopardizes polar bears in Manitoba 08 Jan 2012 Hundreds of polar bears in northeastern Manitoba may face an increased risk of starvation due to delayed ice formation along the western coast of Hudson Bay, conservationists say. Higher-than-normal temperatures have prevented ice from forming in the region, putting it three to four weeks behind schedule, according to the Canadian Ice Service, a division of Environment Canada. As a result, minimum ice cover there is the lowest since 1971, Canadian Ice Service forecaster Luc Desjardins said. Formation of sea ice is critical for polar bears, which use it as a platform for catching seals and other marine mammals.

Britain brags about war on Iran 07 Jan 2012 British foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has violated the international law by threatening to attack Iran if it closes its territorial waters in the Strait of Hormuz to transit.

Hammond said in a speech in Washington that closure of the World's most important oil artery would be "illegal and unsuccessful" saying Britain and the US would keep the water lane open using the might of their "joint naval presence" in the Persian Gulf.
