Investigation Is Sought Into Primary in S. Carolina

Investigation Is Sought Into Primary in S. Carolina 11 Jun 2010 Calls are mounting for an investigation into Alvin Greene, the candidate who surprised pretty much everyone by winning the South Carolina Democratic primary for the United States Senate on Tuesday. State Democratic officials have urged Mr. Greene to quit the contest against Senator Jim DeMint, a Republican, and top lawmakers, including Representative James E. Clyburn, began suggesting on Thursday that Mr. Greene was a "plant." Mr. Clyburn, the House Democratic majority whip, called for a federal investigation because of reports that Mr. Greene, who told television reporters and others that he is unemployed, somehow paid the more than $10,000 filing fee to run for the Senate. [See: Keith Olbermann's interview Thursday with Alvin Greene 'Meet Alvin Greene' on MSNBC's 'Countdown.']

Pentagon Manhunt for Wikileaks Founder

CIA assassination squads we can believe in: Pentagon Manhunt for Wikileaks Founder By Philip Shenon 10 Jun 2010 Pentagon investigators are trying to determine the whereabouts of the Australian-born founder of the secretive website Wikileaks for fear that he may be about to publish a huge cache of classified State Department cables that, if made public, could do serious damage to national security [?], government officials tell The Daily Beast. The officials acknowledge that even if they found the website founder, Julian Assange, it is not clear what they could do to block publication of the cables on Wikileaks, which is nominally based on a server in Sweden and bills itself as a champion of whistleblowers.

Benzene pollution - a health risk in Gulf BP Oil drilling disaster

Benzene pollution - a health risk in Gulf BP Oil drilling disaster --BP = "Benzene Pollutants" By A. True Ott, Ph.D. 31 May 1010 What is unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico is truly a nightmare of epic proportions. Untold millions (if not billions) of gallons of raw crude oil, mixed with natural gas has been spewing (not spilling) into the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico for over a month... Raw crude oil is naturally loaded with a petrochemical called benzene. Unfortunately, several regulatory agencies (e.g., the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA], and the International Agency for Research on Cancer) classify benzene as a confirmed human carcinogen (CHC). In other words, benzene causes cancer and other chronic disease states.

Italian flotilla journalist: My credit card was used after IDF confiscated it --Journalist Manolo Luppichini has written Netanyahu, Peres, Barak, Lieberman and Israel's ambassador in Italy over the matter. 11 Jun 2010 Manolo Luppichini was aboard the Sfintoni-8000, one of the smaller boats in the flotilla, when the naval commandos took it over. A few days ago Luppichini discovered that while he was confined in Be'er Sheva prison compound and after he was back in Italy - a day after his deportation - purchases were made with his credit card, which the Israeli authorities had confiscated.

New Estimates Double Rate of Oil That Flowed Into Gulf

New Estimates Double Rate of Oil That Flowed Into Gulf 10 Jun 2010 A government panel on Thursday essentially doubled its estimate of how much oil has been spewing from the out-of-control BP well, with the new calculation suggesting that an amount equivalent to the Exxon Valdez disaster could be flowing into the Gulf of Mexico every 8 to 10 days. The new estimate is 25,000 to 30,000 barrels of oil a day. That range, still preliminary, is far above the previous estimate of 12,000 to 19,000 barrels a day.

Plight For Pelicans: Oil Puts Nesting Season At Risk

Plight For Pelicans: Oil Puts Nesting Season At Risk 09 Jun 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil is menacing one of the best wildlife recovery stories: brown pelicans. Biologists are saving as many individual birds as they can, but they say the oil has arrived on Louisiana's coast at the worst possible time. The small marshy islands near Grand Isle Louisiana are chock full of pelicans. From the water, many heads can be seen sticking out of the grasses... But oil has invaded this nursery scene.

Cyber-security legislation seeks emergency powers

Cyber-security legislation seeks emergency powers --Proposal puts cyber agency in Homeland Security Department  --Competing proposal puts power in White House 10 Jun 2010 A new Congressional cyber security proposal would give the president emergency powers to protect critical private networks 'under attack,' but the bill's sponsors insisted it does not allow the government to take control of any private cyber-network. Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joseph Lieberman, I-Insane-Connecticut, who helped create the legislation, said the president could order a patch or tell a cyber network to stop receiving incoming data from a particular country when critical infrastructure in the private sector such as the electrical grid or financial grid is threatened or attacked [or people start exposing false flags, re-killed al-Qaeda, and Baxter shipping live pandemic flu through the mail].

Oil Spill's Latest Victim: Nation's Oldest Oyster Shucker

Oil Spill's Latest Victim: Nation's Oldest Oyster Shucker 10 Jun 2010 P&J Oyster Company, the oldest oyster supplier in the U.S., stopped shucking oysters Thursday, making it the latest victim of the Gulf oil spill. That means 18 people won't be working for the company next week. "We've been doing this for 134 years, and this is a somber occasion," said Sal Sunseri, one of the family members who co-owns the business, which typically would have sold about 60,000 oysters per day to restaurants in the New Orleans area.

Gulf oil spill 'may top 100,000 barrels a day'

Gulf oil spill 'may top 100,000 barrels a day' 09 Jun 2010 BP’s oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico may be up to four times the scale estimated by a government scientific panel, pumping out 100,000 barrels a day in what equates to the company’s "worst case scenario" and prompting new accusations that executives are stonewalling the truth. The news -- revealed by one of the members of President Obama’s Flow Rate Technical Group, a panel that previously estimated that the flow was in the region of 12,000 to 25,000 barrels a day -- counter to BP’s claims that it is now capturing "the majority" of the oil and channeling it into a tanker.

At least $500 million spent constructing prison camps, renovating Guantanamo Bay 07 Jun 2010 At the U.S. naval station here, a handsome electronic sign hangs between two concrete pillars...The cost of the marquee, along with a smaller sign positioned near the airfield: $188,000.

The Pentagon also spent $683,000 to renovate a cafe that sells ice cream and Starbucks coffee, and $773,000 to remodel a cinder-block building to house a KFC/Taco Bell [*puke*] restaurant.

Guantanamo Spending Nears $2B

Guantanamo Spending Nears $2B 07 Jun 2010 The U.S. military has spent at least $500 million in recent years on renovations to Guantanamo Bay, including $296,000 for a go-kart track, records show. Add in spending for top-secret items and the total cost easily soars toward $2 billion, The Washington Post reported Monday in the first public accounting of spending at the base since the first suspected terror detainees arrived in January 2002. The costs do not include the $150 million a year that it takes to run the 45-square-mile base for US contractors, which the Obama administration wants to close.

"I Don't Like Bush Either": Splitting-the-Sky trial ends favorably! Posted by Kevin Barrett 08 Jun 2010 The Calgary Herald reports: A Chase, B.C., man will not go to jail after being convicted on Monday of obstructing a peace officer while protesting former U.S. president [sic] George W. Bush's visit to Calgary last year. Provincial court Judge Manfred Delong handed a conditional discharge to John Pasquale Boncore, 58, and placed him on probation for a year. Boncore, who uses the name Splitting the Sky, must make a $1,000 donation to a charity of his choice and pay a $50 victim fine surcharge as conditions of his probation. Trial observer and Splitting-the-Sky supporter John Duddy reports: I spent the afternoon in court listening to the Splitting-the-Sky case. He won. No criminal record, he has to make a donation to his favourite charity. Ramsey Clark spoke on behalf of the defendant; the Crown did not object. Overheard the Crown lawyer in the elevator say "I don't like Bush either".

Units make history with Air Force's first homeland defense

Units make history with Air Force's first homeland defense ORI 01 Jun 2010 Three units representing each component of the Air Force made history here May 16 through 23 when they successfully completed the first homeland defense operational readiness inspection. The ORI, held at the Gulfport Combat Readiness Training Center here, was administered by the Air Mobility Command Inspector General on a trial basis, but it may help pave the way for future inspections, officials said. "For the very first time, the U.S. Air Force has validated a unit's wartime capability to defend the homeland by fighting an enemy right here on U.S. soil," said Col. Greg Nelson, the commander of the Kentucky Air National Guard's 123rd Airlift Wing, which served as the lead organization for the ORI. "That represents a major shift in the way Air Force (leaders evaluate) unit readiness, because it puts the focus in our own backyard, rather than a simulated overseas location where these evaluations are usually staged," he said.

Delisted and in danger: Gulf oil spill threatens brown pelicans months after they are dropped from endangered species list

Delisted and in danger: Gulf oil spill threatens brown pelicans months after they are dropped from endangered species list By John Platt 08 Jun 2010 Images of oil-caked brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) have hit the front pages of countless U.S. newspapers and other media in the past week, driving home the still-growing impact of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. So far, dozens of pelicans have been transported to rescue centers for treatment. The number is only expected to rise as the oil spill spreads and covers Louisiana's Queen Bess Island Pelican Rookery and other important breeding sites. It is quite a blow for a species that was on the endangered species list until just six months ago.
