November 8, 2012 by legitgov

Bradley Manning Offers to Plead Guilty to Partial Charges, Including Leaking to WikiLeaks 07 Nov 2012 Accused WikiLeaks leaker Bradley Manning offered on Wednesday to plead guilty to parts of the charges he is facing, in exchange for the government pursuing lesser charges. Manning did not plead guilty but indicated in a plea notice submitted by his attorney, David Coombs, that he is willing to accept responsibility for some of the lesser included charges, but not the charges as they stand in whole. The move is known as "pleading by exceptions and substitutions" and is a strategy for negotiating the charges against him, which his attorney has tried repeatedly to do, unsuccessfully, via other means during pre-trial hearings.

U.S. WikiLeaks Criminal Probe 'Ongoing,' Judge Reveals 07 Nov 2012 A 2-year-old federal grand jury probe into the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks is still "ongoing," a federal judge in Virginia revealed Wednesday in a brief ruling. It's the first official confirmation since WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was granted asylum by the Ecuadorean government in August that the grand jury investigation is continuing. U.S. District Judge Liam O'Grady of Alexandria, Virginia, noted the investigation in a legal flap surrounding three WikiLeaks associates who lost their bid to protect their Twitter records from U.S. investigators. The three had asked the court to unseal documents in their case.

November 8, 2012 by legitgov

Election Night: Obama Drone Bombs Several in Yemen 07 Nov 2012 On Wednesday morning, as many Americans sifted through the voter data and exit poll numbers of President Barack Obama's reelection the night before, the Twitter feeds of close watchers of Yemen lit up with reports of another sort of presidential event: an apparent U.S. drone strike had killed several individuals in that country. There was no way of being certain if the strike was indeed American, or for that matter if it was a drone strike at all, although it had all the markings of one. "All signs (after dark, suspicions of locals, target) point to Sanhan strike being a US drone," Yemen-based freelance journalist Adam Baron wrote on Twitter. Several other analysts concurred. A White House spokesman did not respond to a request for comment. If it were a American strike, of course, it would have to have been authorized by Obama.

Broadcast news organizations will be paying up to $6,500 for workspace.

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Numbers nerd Nate Silver's forecasts prove all right on election night 07 Nov 2012 One big winner of US election night was the statistical guru and unashamed numbers nerd Nate Silver, who correctly predicted not only Barack Obama's victory but the outcome of the presidential contest in all 50 states. Silver, the political forecaster at the New York Times, infuriated Republicans in the closing days of the race by arguing on his blog FiveThirtyEight.com that Obama's chances of winning were steadily increasing. His final forecast gave Obama a 90.9% chance of victory. Silver also forecast 332 electoral college votes for Obama against 206 for Romney - the actual result, assuming Obama's Florida victory is confirmed.

Nor'easter to bring high winds and cold rain to New York and New Jersey 07 Nov 2012 Storm-weary residents in New York and New Jersey were braced Wednesday for further misery, as a nor'easter bore down on the region threatening high winds, rain and sleet. In advance of the fresh wave of bad weather, authorities in New York City were taking precautions including the closing of all parks and beaches, while urging the partial evacuation of coastal areas.

Obama wins reelection 07 Nov 2012 With polls closed throughout the continental United States, President Barack Obama won reelection by a comfortable margin in the Electoral College, while pulling ahead in the popular vote after midnight, as returns began coming in from the West Coast...Obama will repay those who turned out to vote for him by carrying out measures that will devastate their jobs, living standards and social conditions. The "grand bargain" that he has pledged to negotiate with the Republicans will come at the expense of the working class, through trillions in cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other social programs.

California's Prop. 37 food labeling initiative trailing badly 06 Nov 2012 Proposition 37, the genetically engineered food labeling initiative, was trailing badly late on election day. With just over a fifth of the statewide votes counted, the measure was losing with 42.7% yes to 57.3% no. It was polling strongly ahead five weeks ago, but fell steadily in the polls under a barrage of negative campaign television advertisements funded by a food and biotech industry [terrorists'] war chest of more than $44 million.

Son of Sandy on the Way to New England 06 Nov 2012 Don't look now but... This is just what storm-ravaged areas of the northeast don't need... another large and potentially destructive storm. This one, perhaps some will dub the Son of Sandy, will not be quite so intense or devastating but nonetheless will cause significant coastal problems and perhaps a small preview of winter at some inland locations. The storm will begin to develop tonight off the coast of the Carolinas, move toward New England tomorrow and slowly pass the region by Thursday later afternoon.

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Obama Tells US: 'The Best Is Yet To Come' --US President Barack Obama tells his supporters he returns to the White House 'more determined and more inspired than ever'. 07 Nov 2012 Barack Obama has won a second term as US President after beating Republican challenger Mitt Romney following a bitter and costly election campaign. The Democrat sealed victory by winning in Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Wisconsin, Virginia and Colorado - seven of the nine key battleground states. With only Florida left to call, Mr Obama has 303 electoral college votes to Mr Romney's 203 and is well over the crucial threshold of 270. The President was also ahead in the national vote, with the country-wide exit poll putting him on 50% - two points ahead of his Republican challenger. [Lest we forget... NDAA, drones, PATRIOT Act renewal/expansion, insurance cartel giveaway aka 'health care' reform, Guantanamo Bay still open (tribunals underway), forgiveness of Bush-era war criminals (heck, even some brand new war crimes), surrender to GOP on the debt ceiling (and everything else), Afghanistan until 2014, contractor$ in Iraq, etc.]

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Paul Ryan loses vice-presidential bid but keeps his House seat 06 Nov 2012 Paul Ryan came up short in his vice presidential bid, but his backup plan worked. The Wisconsin congressman easily won re-election Tuesday night to the U.S. House seat he has held since 1998. He also won his previous congressional elections by comfortable margins. Even before he was tapped as Mitt Romney's No. 2, Ryan was seen as a rising star within the Republican Party. As chairman of the powerful House Budget Committee, he gained prominence when he drew up an austere budget blueprint that would reshape Medicare for many people into a voucher-like program. He also attracted attention for wanting to keep tax breaks in place that were set to expire for the wealthy.

Al Gore: Voter suppression like 'racist Jim Crow tactics'

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Al Gore: Voter suppression like 'racist Jim Crow tactics' 06 Nov 2012 Al Gore said Tuesday on Current TV that the attempt this cycle to stop people from voting has been "un-American" and a "disgrace," adding that it is a "strategy that is a direct descendent" of "racist Jim Crow tactics." Gore, who co-founded the left-leaning cable channel, said he hopes there will be a "reckoning for these governors and state legistures that have intentionally tried to prevent people from voting. It is un-American." The problem -- which he said included the long lines facing many voters, particularly in Florida -- must be addressed in a bipartisan way after the election.

"I am well aware I will be the first openly gay member [of the Senate]. I didn't run to make history I ran to make a difference. I know that many of the people listening to the speech tonight may not have voted for me... and I ask you to work with me to move our state forward."
