Until fairly recently, Jonathan Lundgren enjoyed a stellar career as a government scientist. An entomologist who studies how agrichemicals affect the ecology of farm fields, he has published nearly 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals since starting at the US Department of Agricultures Agricultural Research Service laboratory in Brookings, South Dakota, in 2005. By 2012, he had won the ARSs "Outstanding Early Career Research Scientist" award, and directorship of his own lab.

From last night's second GOP debate, comes one of the most audacious slices of BSAlert material we've possibly ever encountered. In response to Donald Trump's criticism of Jeb's brother's term in office, his response was, "At least my brother kept us safe.."

Ed Schultz has a very poignant response to this amazing utterance of delusional hubris that is very well worth watching, especially for those who might not be old enough to know better...

I'm not one to jump on the meme bandwagon, but I'd like to see this idea propagate. When it all comes down to it, ISIS/ISIL is not a threat to America any more than the mythological "WMDs" Saddam Hussein supposedly had. Let's make sure our fellow Americans are reminded of the mistakes of the past so we're not doomed to repeat them.

If you have a cool graphic that also illustrates this point, let us know and we'll feature it here.

SCOTUS Sides With Hobby Lobby To Deny Women's Rights

Posted by Pile (5849 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


The Supreme Court says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.

The justices’ 5-4 decision Monday is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. And it means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies’ health insurance plans.

Contraception is among a range of preventive services that must be provided at no extra charge under the health care law that President Barack Obama signed in 2010 and the Supreme Court upheld two years later.

Edward Snowden Interviewed By German TV

[Activists]
This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube.

In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom.

Moyers: The GOP Is Leading A Seccession

[Activists]
This week’s government shutdown has consequences for all of us, costing an estimated $300 million each day that the government is closed for business. Many Americans have voiced their frustrations with the fallout from the shutdown on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hash tag #DearCongress. Here, Bill Moyers shares his own frustrations, admonishing the Republican Party for holding the country hostage via an irrational “ransom list” of demands — while sabotaging democracy in the process. “When the President refused to buckle to this extortion, they threw their tantrum,” Bill says. ”Like the die-hards of the racist South a century and a half ago, who would destroy the union before giving up their slaves, so would these people burn down the place, sink the ship.” He goes on to tell us where the “reckless ambition” of the Republicans could lead us.

Unbeknownst to the mainstream media and the American people, the GOP majority in Congress passed a resolution that prohibits anyone other than the speaker of the House to call a vote to restore the Government shutdown. In effect, this sneaky little trick subverts democracy and creates a totalitarian state.

Senior US Federal Attorney Is Outed On Public Messageboard

Posted by Pile (14898 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


The US Attorney General for Louisiana, Jim Letten, announced today that one of his top prosecutors has been using the handle "Henry L. Mencken1951" to criticize a local landfill owner and a raft of other local and national figures, including federal judges, in the comments section on Louisiana's Times-Picayune website. Perricone "readily admitted" using the pseudonym, and the matter has been referred to the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility, Letten said.

And what does a US Fed utter when he thinks he's protected by anonymity? Will this issue create a controversy over whether or not someone commenting publicly under an alias can be construed as an ethical conflict of interest?
