Gates: 'A few years' of combat in Afghanistan
08-13-2009  •  AP 
The Pentagon presented a grim portrait of the Afghanistan war, offering no assurances about how long Americans will be fighting there or how many U.S. combat troops it will take to win.

Defeating the Taliban and al-Qaida will take "a few years," Defense Secretary Robert Gates said, with success on a larger scale in the desperately poor country a much longer proposition. He acknowledged that the Taliban has a firm hold on parts of the country President Barack Obama has called vital to U.S. security.

For the second time in recent weeks, the Texas state auditor's office says it cannot determine whether a state financial regulatory agency has been doing its job properly because federal officials in Dallas refused to allow access to state records critical to the audit. Now, State Auditor John Keel is asking for immediate release of the records, which his office originally sought five months ago.  Read Full Story

Obama Wants Big Banks To Hire More of His Chicago Cronies
08-13-2009  •  Washington Post 

The Obama administration is pressing ahead with its broad overhaul of financial regulation by proposing to hike the fees big financial firms pay for federal oversight while easing the burden for smaller ones, officials said.

The new two-tiered, pay-for-regulation approach is intended to partly cover the costs of more vigorous bank regulation and a new consumer financial protection agency. It reflects the administration's view that large banks and lenders should pay more because they are more complex and expensive to regulate, a Treasury Department official said.

About a dozen state officials were joined by 18 representatives from the Defense, Justice and Homeland Security departments and the Bureau of Prisons on the tour of the lockup in Standish, said Russ Marlan, a spokesman for the Michigan Department of Corrections.

The prison in Standish, 145 miles north of Detroit, and a military penitentiary at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., are being considered to house the 229 suspected al-Qaida, Taliban and foreign fighters currently at the Guantanamo Bay prison, if it is closed by 2010 as President Barack Obama has ordered.

Jury Convicts Defendant in Texas 'Fight Club' Case
08-13-2009  •  AP 

A former state employee responsible for some of Texas' most vulnerable residents was convicted of injuring them during orchestrated fights at a state facility for the developmentally disabled.

Jesse Salazar, 25, was one of six former employees at the Corpus Christi State School charged in an abuse scandal that police described as a "fight club."

The jury found Salazar guilty of intentionally causing injury to a disabled person, a third-degree felony. The trial immediately moved into the penalty phase. Prosecutors asked for the maximum of 10 years in prison, while Salazar requested probation. The jury did not reach a decision on the sentence before the end of the day and was to resume deliberations Friday.

A man suspected of making threats against the White House was pulled from his car after an hours-long standoff in the parking lot of the Federal Building in West Los Angeles.

The man had refused to leave his red Volkswagen Beetle and withstood four rounds of chemical agents tossed inside the car after police broke a rear window. About an hour later, officers shot out the drivers window with a bean bag gun, used a Taser on the man and pulled him out.

The "feed over email" (FOE) system delivers news, podcasts and data via technology that evades web-screening protocols of restrictive regimes, said Ken Berman, head of IT at the U.S. government's Broadcasting Board of Governors, which is testing the system.

Toxic Loans Topping 5% May Push 150 Banks to Point of No Return
08/13/2009  •  Bloomberg 
More than 150 publicly traded U.S. lenders own nonperforming loans that equal 5 percent or more of their holdings, a level that former regulators say can wipe out a bank’s equity and threaten its survival. The number of banks exceeding the threshold more than doubled in the year through June, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, as real estate and credit-card defaults surged. Almost 300 reported 3 percent or more of their loans were nonperforming, a term for commercial and consumer debt that has stopped collecting interest or will no longer be paid in full.  Read Full Story

MAINE: National Guard drill at high school to prepare for possible H1N1 riot
8/13/09  •  Sun Joural 
Lewiston, Maine Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School will be the site of a National Guard riot control drill Thursday morning to prepare in the event of a panic over distribution of serum to treat the swine flu. The school on Route 26 at the Paris-Norway town line has been designated by state officials as a distribution site for the H1N1 flu vaccine. The drill is to prepare for a worst-case scenario should the serum have to be transported from Augusta and people rush to get it. On Thursday morning, four or five National Guard Humvees will travel from Augusta to Paris with vials of fake serum. The National Guardsmen will take on the roles of panicked citizens and military police and practice what they would do, such as using tear gas, in the case of a riot. "This is just a component of moving the stuff from point A to B," said Oxford County Emergency Management Agency Director Scott Parker. The plan will be put into place only if needed, he said.  Read Full Story

The cost of earmarks increased this year despite lawmakers' claims they're working to reduce pork-barrel spending. Earmarks, which are inserted in appropriations bills by members in order to fund specific projects, added up to $19.9 billion in 2009, according to an analysis by the Taxpayers for Common Sense and Center for Responsive Politics. Earmarks in 2008 spending bills were worth $18.3 billion. Earmark critics have said that the practice increases pork-barrel spending and takes funds away from national priorities.  Read Full Story

Isn't this against the free market system and more in line with the thinking of Mussolini? Question 6: Why does the healthcare bill on pages 195-196, SEC. 431 and on page 145, section 312 open up my tax information to federal employees, and force my employer to supply any information asked of him by the Health Choices Commissioner, the Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the Secretary of the Treasury? Question 9: On page 936, this bill mentions a “Healthy People & National Public Health Performance Standards”. Does this mean you are going to try and tell me what I can and can't eat? Are you going to force manufacturers to stop making some foods?

The global economy still faces turmoil as government try to figure out how to move out of fiscal rescue packages, which could lead to another two downturns, Deutsche Bank Chief Economist Norbert Walter said Thursday. In addition, nervousness on the part of major dollar holders could pressure the greenback and lead to a very worrying 2010, Walter said. Norbert said recently in research notes “the world is in trouble.” “I believe that the rescue packages brought on have been so costly for so many governments that the exit from this fiscal policy will be very painful, very painful indeed,” he said. “Some of us are already talking about a W-shaped recovery.

Congress moves to extend unemployment benefits
08/13/2009  •  The Hill 
The Senate and House are both moving to extend costly unemployment insurance benefits included in the $787 billion economic stimulus package amid fears about a jobless recovery and growing fiscal deficits. The nation's unemployment rate stands at 9.4 percent and actually dipped one-tenth of a point in July, but is widely expected to increase in coming months. Unemployment hasn't been this high in a quarter-century, and a record number of workers have been unemployed for an extended period of more than 27 weeks. Rhode Island Sen. Jack Reed (D), whose state has a 12.4 percent unemployment rate that trails only Michigan, introduced legislation Friday to extend enhanced unemployment benefits through the end of 2010. The benefits were first included in the stimulus bill and are set to expire at the end of the year. The stimulus extended the time unemployed workers are eligible for benefits and offered a $25-per-week increase in payments. Reed's bill would provide an additiona  Read Full Story
