Obama Administration Looks to Colleges for Future Spies
06-19-2009  •  Washington Post 
The Obama administration has proposed the creation of an intelligence officer training program in colleges and universities that would function much like the Reserve Officers' Training Corps run by the military services. The idea is to create a stream "of first- and second-generation Americans, who already have critical language and cultural knowledge, and prepare them for careers in the intelligence agencies," according to a description sent to Congress by Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair.

House Impeaches Federal Judge From Texas
06-19-2009  •  AP 

The House on Friday impeached a federal judge imprisoned for lying about sexual assaults of two women in the first such vote since impeaching former President Bill Clinton a decade ago.

The impeachment of U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent of Texas sets up a trial in the Senate. Kent is the first federal judge impeached in 20 years.

The House approved four articles

FBI files show wide 'Deep Throat' investigation
06-19-2009  •  AP 

The documents show the expanse of agents' investigation into the film: seizing copies of the movie, having negatives analyzed in labs and interviewing everyone from actors and producers to messengers who delivered reels to theaters.

All of it in a failed attempt to stop the spread of a movie that some saw as the victory of a cultural and sexual revolution and others saw as simply decadent.

Six months after he arrived, Barrera's dream is still just a dream -- his 37 acres are fallow, so he spends his time feeding grain to nine scrawny pigs.

Running the Gauntlet
06-19-2009  •  Tucson Weekly 

Call it déjà vu all over again.

It was Dec. 20, 2008, and Terry Bressi found himself idling through a remote Border Patrol checkpoint on State 86. He was simply returning from his job at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, on the Tohono O'odham Reservation west of Tucson. But minutes later, he possessed a newly minted citation for impeding traffic. One might be forgiven for assuming that traffic impediment is the actual purpose of these checkpoints, which are popping up with increasing regularity across the Southwest. But when it comes to Terry Bressi, the Border Patrol and the Tohono O'odham Police Department have a little score to settle.

99-Year-Old's Water Bill Jumps Almost 4000%
06-19-2009  •  www.nbcwashington.com/ 
Stop complaining about your utility bills. Jeannette Cohen's water bill jumped almost 4000 percent.

The 99-year-old northwest Washington woman insists it must be a mistake. Usually, her water bill is $30. In March, she did a double take.

"I got my usual bill and opened the envelope and looked at the amount," she said. "Huh? I looked again."

It was $1,181.

Cohen complained and had plumbers check her house twice. Usually, she uses about 3,000 gallons of water per month. D.C. Water and Sewer Authority's records show that 139,876 gallons went into her house that month, and they insist she must pay for them.

"It's just so obvious that, as the plumber said, 'You couldn't use that much water,'" she told News4's Tom Sherwood.

Hitler's Psychiatrist Cited Sexual Motivation for War
06-19-2009  •  http://henrymakow.com/ 
by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Hitler's sexual dysfunction was responsible for war and his persecution of the Jews, according to Kurt Kreuger M.D. who claims he was Hitler's psychiatrist from 1919 to 1934.

I stumbled on his 1941 book, "I was Hitler's Doctor" not suspecting he was a psychiatrist. I wasn't prepared for the intimate revelations, including one that Hitler hated Jews because a grocer named Sachs had "desecrated" his mother.

Professor Robert Waite says the book is a hoax. There was no Jewish grocer in Leonding and Kreuger couldn't possibly have remembered pages of intimate conversations verbatim. ("The Psychopathic God," p. 434)

I don't know about the grocer but it seems to me that after treating a very special patient for 15 years, a gifted man like Kreuger could reproduce his words. Hitler's problem with women is widely known. Also, the Introduction was written by Ot

Replace, Don't Reform, Airport Security
06-19-2009  •  http://www.jbs.org/jbs-news-feed/4989 
Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted 310-118 to keep the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from strip-searching passengers with millimeter-wave scanners at airport checkpoints. Screeners will grope us instead.
 
Millimeter-waves function like Superman’s X-ray vision, peering through your clothing to the body beneath. You don’t undress; the scanner does that for you. Meanwhile, screeners leering at the monitor and ostensibly checking for weapons can check you out instead.
 
Prisons have used millimeter-wave and similar technologies for years. No wonder the TSA, which frequently confuses passengers with prisoners, has tried since its beginnings in 2002 to push us into these pornographic scanners. But public outrage always stymied those efforts; there’s something unutterably creepy about government agents inspecting naked citizens.

Treasury to Auction $104 Billion In Debt Next Week, a Record News Link  •  Federal Reserve
Treasury to Auction $104 Billion In Debt Next Week, a Record
06-19-2009  •  CNBC 
The Treasury announced Thursday a record $104 billion worth of bond auctions for next week, part of its herculean efforts to finance a rescue of the world's largest economy.

The sales will exceed the previous record of $101 billion set in auctions that took place in the last week of April and consist of two-year, five-year and seven-year securities. That record was matched by another $101 billion week in May.

Though next week's total was broadly in line with expectations, worries about supply have weighed on the U.S. government bond market, which will see a mammoth $2 trillion worth of new debt issued this year.

"Maybe the Treasury market reacted a little negatively and it will continue to be like this," said Suvrat Prakash, U.S. interest rate strategist with BNP Paribas in New York. "Supply   Read Full Story

'God is Great' echoes throughout Tehran
06-19-2009  •  breitbart.com 
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Tehran residents are climbing to their roofs and crying "God is Great!" in open defiance of Iran's supreme leader.

The late-night cries of "Allahu Akbar!" and "Death to the Dictator!" throughout Tehran Friday are a direct challenge to the cleric who has ultimate authority under Iran's constitution. They come hours after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned opposition supporters to stop protesting the June 12 election they say was rigged in favor of hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi borrowed the tactic from the 1979 Islamic Revolution led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who asked Iranians to show unity against the U.S.-backed shah by shouting "Allahu Akbar" from their roofs.

The U.S. military is preparing for a possible intercept of a North Korean flagged ship suspected of proliferating weapons material in violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution passed last Friday, FOX News has learned.

The USS John McCain, a Navy destroyer, is positioning itself in case it gets orders to intercept the ship Kang Nam as soon as it leaves the vicinity off the coast of China, according to a senior U.S. defense official. The order to inderdict has not been given yet, but the ship is moving into the area.

"Permission has not been requested. Nor is it clear it will be," a military source told FOX News. "This is a very delicate situation and no one is interested in precipitating a confrontation."

The ship left a port in North Korea Wednesday and appears to be heading toward Singapore, according to a seni  Read Full Story

Nestle USA on Friday voluntarily recalled its Toll House refrigerated cookie dough products after a number of illnesses were reported by those who ate the dough raw. The company said the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are investigating reported E. coli illnesses that might be related eating the dough. In a statement, the FDA said there have been 66 reports of illness across 28 states since March. About 25 people have been hospitalized, but no one has died. E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure.  Read Full Story

Of the reactors covered here: The Chinese HTR-PM (250 MWe) is scheduled to begin construction in September of this year and is to be completed in 2013. The Hyperion Power Generation company has customer orders and is planning to have their first hot tub size uranium hydride reactors (27MWe) built in 2013. The Russians have built reactors like the SVBR (75/100 MWe) metal breeder reactor for their submarines. The SVBR reactor project is funded and should have a pilot reactor for 2020. These first three reactors would likely also be the lowest cost reactors of the ones proposed here. The funding and commitment to build those reactors seems to be the strongest. China and Russia will build those reactors for internal use.
