Displaced Sandy residents: FEMA 'shelter' like prison camp with 'Blackhawk helicopters flying over day and night'

November 11, 2012 by legitgov

Displaced Sandy residents: FEMA 'shelter' like prison camp with 'Blackhawk helicopters flying over day and night' --No media allowed inside fenced complex --Officials turned off WiFi; cops unplugged iPhones after learning people were contacting press 10 Nov 2012 (Oceanport, NJ) As he lights up a Marlboro and takes a slow drag before exhaling, Brian Sotelo is a man who has finally reached his breaking point. Anger drips from every word as he peers out at the tops of the white tents rising over the trees in the distance... We stood and talked in the cool morning air a short distance up the road after security at the front gate threatened to have our cars removed outside the entrance to what Sotelo's identification tag calls "Camp Freedom," even though it more closely resembles a prison camp. "The elections are over and here we are. There were Blackhawk helicopters flying over all day and night. They have heavy equipment moving past the tents all night."

Sick, frail struggle most in storm's aftermath

November 11, 2012 by legitgov

Sick, frail struggle most in storm's aftermath 10 Nov 2012 Some of society's most vulnerable people -- the elderly, the disabled and the chronically ill -- have been pushed to the brink in the powerless, flood-ravaged neighborhoods struggling to recover from Superstorm Sandy. The storm didn't just knock out electricity and destroy property when it came ashore in places like the Far Rockaway section of Queens. It disrupted the fragile support networks that allowed the neighborhood's frailest residents to get by. Here, the catastrophe has closed pharmacies, kept home care aids from getting to elderly clients and made getting around in a wheelchair impossible. The city has recorded at least two deaths of older men in darkened buildings. [Of course, the Red Cross sacks of sh*t are MIA in impoverished areas of the US, as usual. --LRP]

Report: Bushehr nuclear plant enters final testing phase 11 Nov 2012 Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant has reportedly entered its final testing phase ahead of its planned 2013 launch date, the Tehran Times reported Saturday.

The truth about the Red Cross

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

The truth about the Red Cross --The right-wing, scandal-ridden 'charity' that isn't really a charity --'The whole history of the organization is one gigantic scandal--stretching from its racist policies toward African Americans to its corporate mentality toward human beings.' By Joe Allen 21 Oct 2005 Though it is technically a nonprofit, the Red Cross is run more like profit-hungry corporation than what most people think a "charity" would act like. The most deadly example of this was the Red Cross's criminally negligent response to the early stages of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. In 1982 and especially 1983... major blood banks, led by the Red Cross, opposed national testing of blood for HIV. The Red Cross's opposition was based on the financial cost. As investigative journalist Judith Reitman wrote in her book Bad Blood: "It appeared it would be cheaper to pay off infected blood recipients, should they pursue legal action, than to up the Red Cross blood supply." ...Enron-style bookkeeping, deceptive advertising and outright theft of funds have also been a big part of the Red Cross's recent history.

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Court: Alleged torture victims can't sue Donald Rumsfeld 08 Nov 2012 A federal appeals court in Chicago has ruled that two American contractors allegedly tortured by U.S. forces in Iraq can't sue former Defense Secretary [war criminal] Donald Rumsfeld. The 8-3 decision by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reverses a ruling by a three-judge panel of the same court. Donald Vance and Nathan Ertel claim in their lawsuit that U.S. forces detained them in 2006 after they alleged illegal activities by their Iraqi-owned employer.

Cracks found in South Korean nuclear reactor

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Cracks found in South Korean nuclear reactor 09 Nov 2012 South Korean nuclear regulators have found microscopic cracks in tunnels that guide control rods at a nuclear plant under maintenance, government officials said, raising new concerns over the country's nuclear power sector. The discovery, revealed on Friday, of the cracks at the reactor comes just days after two reactors at the same plant in Yeonggwang county, in the southwest of the country, were shut down to replace parts that had been provided with forged certificates. South Korea is investigating how thousands of parts for its nuclear reactors were supplied using forged safety documents, with regulators set to inspect all 23 of the country's facilities.

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Computer problem prompts Berwick nuclear reactor shutdown 10 Nov 2012 One of two reactors at a Northeast Pennsylvania nuclear plant was shut down Friday morning after a problem with the computer system that controls its level of water, power company officials said.

The source of the computer system problem is under investigation.

Superstorm Sandy: Long Lines, No Power Two Weeks Later

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Superstorm Sandy: Long Lines, No Power Two Weeks Later 10 Nov 2012 After spending nearly two weeks in the dark, Long Island residents are directing  their anger toward their  local power company, which many say is out of touch, sending bills instead of  updates. Nearly two weeks after Superstorm Sandy pummeled the northeast, more than 200,000 in the region are still without power. The Long Island Power Authority did not show up for a last minute overnight press conference today, leaving the company that manages the grid to take the backlash.

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Tempers fray as many in Northeast still without power 10 Nov 2012 Frustration with continuing power outages, travel chaos, and long lines for gasoline grew on Saturday as residents of New York's Long Island, hit hard by Superstorm Sandy, protested outside the headquarters of the local utility company. Residents took to the streets for a second day, targeting the Long Island Power Authority in Hicksville. There were still over a quarter of a million customers without power nearly two weeks after the storm. As of Friday more than 170,000 of those were on Long Island. Thousands were in temporary shelters, and in New Jersey a tent city on the edge of Monmouth Park racetrack was home to hundreds.

Coal company announces layoffs in response to Obama win 09 Nov 2012 A coal company headed by a prominent Mitt Romney donor has laid off more than 160 workers in response to President Obama's election victory. Murray Energy said Friday that it had been "forced" to make the layoffs in response to the bleak prospects for the coal industry during Obama's second term. In a prayer circulated by the company, CEO [corpora-terrorist] Robert Murray said Americans had voted "in favor of redistribution, national weakness and reduced standard of living and lower and lower levels of personal freedom."

E-mail threats triggered probe of Petraeus, officials say

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

E-mail threats triggered probe of Petraeus, officials say 10 No 2012 The collapse of the dazzling career of CIA Director David H. Petraeus was triggered when a woman with whom he was having an affair sent threatening e-mails to another woman close to him, according to three senior law enforcement officials with knowledge of the episode. The recipient of the e-mails was so frightened that she went to the FBI for protection and help tracking down the sender, according to the officials. The FBI investigation traced the threats to Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and a Petraeus biographer, and uncovered explicit e-mails between Broadwell and Petraeus, the officials said.

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Charles Darwin earns 4,000 write-in votes against creationist Ga. congressman 08 Nov 2012 Charles Darwin earned almost 4,000 write-in votes against a Georgia congressman who denounced evolution and other scientific theories as "lies straight from the pit of hell." The symbolic votes in Athens-Clarke County were a small percentage of more than 209,000 votes won by Republican Rep. Paul Broun in his unopposed re-election Tuesday. Broun gave a speech to a church group on Sept. 27 lambasting evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory. Critics urged voters to write in the 19th-century British naturalist who is considered the father of evolution.

Hints of a more virulent, mutating West Nile virus emerge

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Hints of a more virulent, mutating West Nile virus emerge 08 Nov 2012 The West Nile virus epidemic of 2012, the worst in a decade, may be notorious for yet another reason: The virus, in some cases, is attacking the brain more aggressively than in the past, raising the specter that it may have mutated into a nastier form, say two neurologists who have extensive experience dealing with the illness. One doctor, Art Leis in Jackson, Miss., has seen the virus damaging the speech, language and thinking centers of the brain -- something he has never observed before. The other, Elizabeth Angus in Detroit, has noticed brain damage in young, previously healthy patients, not just in older, sicker ones -- another change from past years.

Getting All Your News From the 'Citizens for Legitimate Government' Newsletter By Miles Klee 02 Oct 2012 I'm not entirely sure how I ended up subscribing to the CLG newsletter, a roundup of hard-hitting political stories that span the globe, but I have not regretted it for one solitary moment. That's because between relatively sober summaries of under-reported suicide bombings in Afghanistan, they're running headlines about how U.S. army scientists are spraying St. Louis with radioactive particles and Gaddafi was killed on Nicolas Sarkozy's orders.

Mascot bird teaching Fukushima children how to avoid radiation

Mascot bird teaching Fukushima children how to avoid radiation 10 Nov 2012 Nearly two years after Japan was struck by the Fukushima nuclear disaster, officials have begun printing leaflets featuring a yellow cartoon bird that instructs children on radiation safety - though it may be too late for thousands. Fukushima's disaster task force has started issuing leaflets with a bird character called Kibitan telling children to stay away from pools and ditches where radioactive cesium from the damaged nuclear power plant might have accumulated. The smiling, round Kibitan explains why radiation is dangerous, urging children to make a habit of washing their hands and gargling their mouths after coming in from the outdoors.

Petraeus Quits Post; Evidence of Affair Was Found by F.B.I.

November 10, 2012 by legitgov

Petraeus Quits Post; Evidence of Affair Was Found by F.B.I. 10 Nov 2012  David H. Petraeus, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency and one of America's most decorated four-star generals, resigned on Friday after an F.B.I. investigation uncovered evidence that he was carrying on an extramarital affair. Mr. Petraeus issued a statement acknowledging the affair after President Obama accepted his resignation and it was announced by the C.I.A. He had offered to resign on Thursday when he informed Mr. Obama about the affair, White House officials said. Government officials said that the F.B.I. had investigated whether a computer used by Mr. Petraeus had been compromised. In the course of that inquiry, federal investigators discovered the relationship, officials said. [Instead of searching for evidence of Petraeus's affairs, why not look into his war crimes?]

November 9, 2012 by legitgov

Supreme Court to review key section of Voting Rights Act 09 Nov 2012 The Supreme Court on Friday said it would decide the constitutionality of a signature portion of the Voting Rights Act. The justices three years ago expressed skepticism about the continued need for Section 5 of the historic act, which requires states and localities with a history of discrimination, most of them in the South, to get federal approval of any changes in their voting laws. The court will be reviewing a decision last spring by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to uphold Section 5.

The Racist States of America: Shocking map reveals hateful tweets following Obama's re-election --Map comes two days after massive riot at Ole Miss 08 Nov 2012 Rather than using social media to express their frustration and disappointment that Republican Mitt Romney lost the election in an elegant way, many Twitter users instead used the platform to post shockingly racist tweets, calling President Obama a 'n*****' and a 'monkey.' A map collected by Floating Sheep shows the shocking demographic of racist 'hate tweets,' many of them collected from states that were won by Romney. The majority of the tweets, as Jezebel noted, were often from young white residents in southern states.

Health group asks Obama to stop eating junk food in public 08 Nov 2012 A Washington, D.C.-based health group is making another appeal to President Obama to stop eating junk food in public now that election season is over. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) made headlines in May when it filed a petition with the White House objecting to Obama's habit of grabbing hamburgers, hot dogs and other unhealthy foods with his staff and visiting dignitaries. On Wednesday, PCRM Founder Neal Barnard called on Obama to abandon the foods he ate on the campaign trail -- "cheesesteaks in Philly on Monday, barbecue in Dallas on Tuesday, cheese pizza in Madison, Wis., on Thursday" -- now that he has secured reelection.

Obama to pick new FBI director in second term

November 9, 2012 by legitgov

Obama to pick new FBI director in second term 08 Nov 2012 Beyond the reshuffling of President Obama's Cabinet, another key personnel decision is looming in the administration's second term. In the coming months, Obama will decide a successor to Robert Mueller, the longest-serving FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover. Mueller, the only top national security official remaining in government since the 9/11 attacks [inside job], is set to leave office in 2013, after Congress took the unprecedented action of extending his 10-year term. Obama requested the extension last year to preserve some continuity in the national security structure, at a time when he was naming new executives to lead the Pentagon and CIA.

Homeland Security tests subway tunnel plug at WVU 08 Nov 2012 The technology may still be a few years from installation and deployment, but researchers at West Virginia University are working with a Delaware company and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to fine-tune giant inflatable plugs that could protect subway and vehicle tunnels from future flooding. The Resilient Tunnel Plug has been years in development and testing, but it may be more relevant than ever: Superstorm Sandy sent a record 14-foot storm surge into New York Harbor, flooding subway tunnels that move some 5.2 million people a day.
