Huge tanks lined up around the plant, at last count 1,000 of them, each hold hundreds of tons of water that have been cleansed of radioactive cesium and strontium but not of tritium...Calls to simply release the [radioactive] water into the Pacific Ocean are alarming many in Japan and elsewhere.

They insisted Cruz, born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father, did not meet the constitutional requirements to be president.

Trump asked during a rally in Rochester, N.Y. "Because the system is corrupt. And it's worse on the Republican side."

28 Pages --Former Sen. Bob Graham and others urge the Obama administration to declassify redacted pages of a report that holds 9/11 secrets | 10 April 2016 | ('60 Minutes') White House and intelligence officials are reviewing whether to declassify one of the country's most sensitive documents -- known as the "28 pages."

Only a small group of people have ever seen them. Former U.S. Senator (D-Fla.) Bob Graham: I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn't speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many of whom didn't have a high school education-- could've carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States.

Gotta keep those terror threats coming!] Mohamed Abrini, believed to have helped prepare the Nov. 13 Paris attacks, was seized on a Brussels street on Friday. Prosecutors said he confessed to being the "man in the hat" [LOL!] seen at the city's airport with two suicide bombers on March 22. [Yes, all can be ascribed to 'the man in the hat.' Because after carrying out one of the deadliest terror attacks in recent memory, the suspect wanted to keep right on wearing his unique identifiers--a ridiculous hat and bright white jacket--and then take a stroll around Brussels for several hours with seemingly nothing better to do other than to likely cash is I-CIA-SIS paycheck from Langley. Who believes this lunacy? --LRP]

Polar bears losing weight as Arctic sea ice melts, Canadian study finds Between 1984 and 2009 the weight of female bears in Ontario fell by over 10% while global warming meant they had 30 fewer days a year to hunt seal on ice | 09 April 2016 | Three decades of melting sea ice has led to significant weight loss among the world's southernmost population of polar bears, new data from Canadian researchers suggests. "It's a red flag," said Martyn Obbard, a scientist with the Ontario provincial government and co-author of a recently published study in the journal Arctic Science. Researchers looked at a population of about 950 polar bears who live along the northern coast of Ontario, stretching from James Bay to the provincial border with Manitoba. As they live further south than any other population of polar bears, the group is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change global warming.

Trump team vows to win delegate majority as rivals prepare for open contested convention | 09 April 2016 | Leaders of Donald Trump's new campaign team said they have revised targets that would make the real estate mogul the presumptive Republican presidential nominee by mid-May and that would win him the delegates needed to clinch the nomination before the party's convention this summer.  To do so, Trump would have to go on a month-long hot streak, starting in New York on April 19, that would deliver a sizable haul of delegates -- including increased commitments from those who are unbound -- and quiet widespread talk that his unpopularity and his campaign's sloppy execution that have fight against the donor class's out-and-out election theft that has made it nearly impossible to avoid a contested convention. The earliest Trump could assemble the 1,237 delegates needed for the nomination is on the final day of the primary season, June 7, when the big states of California and New Jersey vote.

Man ticketed for flying Donald Trump flags at his home | 08 April 2016 | A Shore man is determined to keep flying a pair of Donald Trump flags in front of his home, even though they've been repeatedly stolen or vandalized and the borough is forcing him to take them down.

When two police officers arrived at his West Long Branch house on March 25, Hornick said he thought they were there to take a report on the latest theft incident. Instead, he was surprised to learn they had a ticket for him accusing him of violating the borough's ordinance prohibiting the public display of political lawn signs more than 30 days before an election.
