    Big Government ^ | 10/10/11 | Joel B. Pollak
    Big Government has learned that anarchist groups, led by Lisa Fithian and working with Democrats and unions on the ground in Chicago, intend forcibly to disrupt the Mortgage Bankers’ Association meeting at the Hyatt Regency Chicago and other locations this afternoon. Violence is possible, as local police and security officers seem unprepared for a confrontation with thousands of activists converging on the Hyatt from multiple other staged demonstrations in Chicago. Fithian, a veteran anarchist organizer who is widely credited with shutting down the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle in 1999, has apparently arrived in Chicago after participating
  • GOP Feared Obama Would Blame Them for Default and Downgrade

    I got home about, oh, I don't know, two o'clock in the afternoon on Sunday. I was exhausted, and I sat down and I started catching up on some stuff, and I got a note saying ranking member wanted to talk to me. So the ranking member called and spelled out the deal here -- what it was, and why it was a winner, and the best we could do with the one-third government that we control and all that -- and the best thing is that we're assured now of avoiding default. I remember saying that there isn't gonna...

    LONDON - Swine flu is far less dangerous than originally feared, British officials said Thursday — about 100 times less lethal than the 1918 Spanish flu. To determine how deadly the virus is, the British health department tracked all reported swine flu patients hospitalized between July and November. In a paper published online in the British journal, BMJ, experts estimated that out of every 100,000 infected people in Britain, about 26 died.

    Swine Flu Cases Overestimated? CBS News Exclusive: Study Of State Results Finds H1N1 Not As Prevalent As Feared (CBS) If you've been diagnosed "probable" or "presumed" 2009 H1N1 or "swine flu" in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn’t have H1N1 flu. In fact, you probably didn’t have flu at all. That's according to state-by-state test results obtained in a three-month-long CBS News investigation. The ramifications of this finding are important. According to the Center for Disease Control, CDC, and Britain's National Health Service, once you have H1N1 flu, you're immune from future outbreaks...

    CHICAGO (AFP) – It seems the dire warnings about future devastation sparked by global warming have not been dire enough, top climate scientists warned Saturday. It has been just over a year since the Nobel-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a landmark report warning of rising sea levels, expanding deserts, more intense storms and the extinction of up to 30 percent of plant and animal species. But recent climate studies suggest that report significantly underestimates the potential severity of global warming over the next 100 years, a senior member of the panel warned. "We are basically looking now...

    Chaos Feared in Pandemic Flu Plan By LAURAN NEERGAARD, AP Medical Writer 45 minutes ago WASHINGTON - A flu pandemic would cause massive disruptions lasting for months, and cities, states and businesses must make plans now to keep functioning — and not count on a federal rescue, the Bush administration said Wednesday. "Our nation will face this global threat united in purpose and united in action in order to best protect our families, our communities, our nation and our world from the threat of pandemic influenza," President Bush said in a letter to Americans noting the release of an updated...

    Ethics war feared in wake of DeLay controversy Congressmen scramble to correct omissions, 'clerical errors.' April 26, 2005 WASHINGTON -- Members of Congress are rushing to amend their travel and campaign records, fearing that the controversy over House Majority Leader Tom DeLay will trigger an ethics war that will bring greater scrutiny to their own travel and official activities. Some offices have sharply limited staff travel, and some members are not traveling at all because of the intense review they believe they will face in coming months. Lawmakers are paying old restaurant bills, filing missing forms and correcting erroneous ones...

    An international hunt is on to find a flying bomb – a stolen Boeing 727 – which led to British Airways canceling all flights to Saudi Arabia last week. The plane is a fuel tanker that MI6 and other spy agencies fear is in the hands of al-Qaeda. The search is being coordinated by Richard Dearlove, director of MI6, and George Tenet, the CIA chief. Both President Bush and Tony Blair, on holiday in Barbados, are being kept updated on the search – one of the most difficult in aviation history. Hidden somewhere in the vast Sahara desert of...
