Rick Perry denied his relationship with Merck had anything to do with his ill-fated mandate.

Rick Perry has pocketed more than $30,000 in campaign cash from Merck, the company that makes the HPV vaccine he tried to push on Texas schoolgirls, the Washington Post reported.

Michele Bachmann rips Rick Perry over HPV vaccination mandate after GOP presidential debate

:: Gardasil HPV Vaccine Hoax Exposed ::

This video (Dec 18, 2007) exposes the truth about Gardasil and HPV vaccinations: They don’t work and may actually be dangerous to women. The FDA knew HPV did not cause cervical cancer in 2003.

Most of the drug company’s dough came prior to Perry’s 2007 attempt to mandate that all school girls over the age of 12 receive the vaccine.

Since announcing his run for President, Perry has sought to down play his support for the vaccine – even admitting his failed mandate effort was a mistake during a Tea Party debate Monday.

Perry insists he pushed for the vaccinations out of concern for young girls – “I hate cancer.”

MOX plant using weapons-grade plutonium being built at S. Carolina site with ominous looking reactors — Located on top of region’s most dangerous fault line

Reactor at Savannah River Site SOURCE: NY Times

National Security News Service reporters spent the last two years investigating the most secretive institution in the federal government: the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and its radioactive weapons facility – the Savannah River Site (SRS).

Our investigation will take you to K Reactor, where the world’s surplus plutonium is being stored in a minimally-secured building located on top of the most dangerous earthquake fault in the South.

The P Reactor at the Savannah River Site

TVA might use MOX fuels from SRS, Augusta Chronicle by Rob Pavey, June 10, 2009:

The 600,000-square-foot complex [a $4.86 billion facility under construction at Savannah River Site is] scheduled to open in 2016, will dispose of 34 metric tons of surplus, weapons-grade plutonium [...] Clay Ramsey, the National Nuclear Security Administration’s MOX federal project director, said TVA [Tennessee Valley Authority] has expressed strong interest in using the fuels in some of its six existing commercial reactors. “We’re very comfortable right now in the level of interest in our fuel,” Mr. Ramsey said Tuesday, adding that a second potential client — whose identity he could not disclose — has opened discussions about using the fuel.

A Utah motorcyclist who was pinned under a burning car, expressed his gratitude on Tuesday for the help of strangers who lifted up the the 4,000 pound (1.8 tonne) vehicle to rescue him, in an act of bravery captured on amateur video.

Authorities said 21-year-old Brandon Wright was riding his motorcycle on Monday near the Utah State University campus in Logan when he collided with a black BMW that was pulling out of a parking lot. Tyre and skid marks on the highway indicate that Wright laid the bike down and slid along the road before colliding with the car.

The bike hit the car’s hood and bounced to the ground, while Wright, who was not a wearing helmet, slid under the car and then both vehicles burst into flames, police said. Wright was pinned to the ground as the flames began to engulf the car.

The video shows a crowd of about 10 men and women gathering around the burning car and motorcycle as flames shoot into the air. Quickly the group places their hands on the car and starts to rock it until it tilts up on its side.Once the car is on two wheels, a construction worker can be seen dragging a spread-eagled Wright from under the car.

:: McCarthy Debunks Reports Critical of NYPD :: by Steven Emerson

Former counter-terrorism federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy has become the nation’s pre-eminent “truth squad” in analyzing, dissecting and debunking the mainstream media’s campaign, seemingly in collusion with Islamist groups, numerous federal and local counter-terrorism programs and operations that are portrayed as anti-Muslim, as illegal for “spying on Americans,” and for the use of informants which both the media and Muslim Brotherhood front groups have virulently attacked as either illegally violating the privacy rights of Americans or for “instigating” Islamic terrorist plots.

In a recently-published article on National Review Online, McCarthy once again demonstrates his sheer brilliance in rebutting the manifold falsehoods in the recent series of articles in the Associated Press as well as National Public Radio for their demonstrably false allegations of NYPD improprieties in their extensive and elaborate counter-terrorist program that emphasizes the primacy of good intelligence as the first line of defense in stopping terrorism.

Not only does McCarthy dissect the false media reports about the NYPD’s counter-terrorist aggressive efforts to collect intelligence but he explains the critical role of intelligence in stopping terrorism. His critique of the administration’s recent “counter terrorist” strategy policy papers shows the absolute national security dangers that these policies of empowering Islamist leaders representing the wide spectrum of front groups created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood in the past 20 years.

In a society where the prevailing elite political correctness seems to foster an ideological collusion between the mainstream media and Islamist groups, McCarthy’s eloquent voice in challenging the politically correct power brokers in the media or Congress or executive branch has singularly kept the American public from having foisting onto them a series of morally bankrupt and corrupt policies and stories.

~ In McCarthy’s article Of Mafiosi and Mullahs he stated “Intelligence is how you take down organized crime and organized terror”.

This was supposed to be a reflection on 9/11 and what we’ve learned in the decade since — what we’ve done right, what we’ve done wrong. It would be foolish, though, to waste time retracing our steps when the lesson is simple and the threat that we will unlearn it is immediate and concrete. What we’ve learned is that the only protection from jihadist terror lies in good intelligence. And what we’re seeing is an attempt to re-establish pre-9/11 roadblocks to intelligence-gathering in the very place where, as 9/11 painfully proved, the threat to us is most profound.

Commissioner Ray Kelly’s police department has pioneered a counterterrorism strategy that has safeguarded New York City, the jihad’s No. 1 target, since jihadists destroyed the twin towers ten years ago tomorrow. Yet, as my column last weekend related, Kelly and the NYPD continue to be targets of an Associated Press smear campaign, bringing down the same hidebound indictment Islamist organizations and the Lawyer Left trot out against any counterterrorism strategy worth having: that it means profiling, domestic spying, and Islamophobia.

Obama appeared to have GOP lawmakers in a pickle over the weekend — struggling with whether to oppose his jobs plan even though its stimulus measures consist mostly of tax cuts. But his newly-announced tax increases to pay for the bill appears to have given Republican lawmakers the political cover they needed to oppose the plan.

“It would be fair to say this tax increase on job creators is the kind of proposal both parties have opposed in the past,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said in a statement. “We remain eager to work together on ways to support job growth, but this proposal doesn’t appear to have been offered in that bipartisan spirit.”

Obama reiterated that he wants lawmakers to pass his jobs bill as is — while GOP lawmakers appear poised to modify it significantly before taking it up for a vote, if they do at all.

Cutting government spending to pay for a stimulus would have been counterproductive, administration officials say, but announcing a plan relying almost entirely on tax increases has given Republicans the ammunition to deprive Obama of the political victory he sorely needs.

Business Insider

It seems Harry knows the ‘Ooops’ of his fellow socialist servers in the WH:

As President Obama continued to tout his new jobs bill campaign-style in the battleground state of Ohio, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., focusing instead on a potential disaster relief fight with Republicans, was unable to outline a path forward for the $447 billion plan.

“I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do yet with the president’s jobs bill, but we’re going to have a full caucus meeting on it on Thurs,” Reid told reporters, saying merely that he had introduced the bill Tuesday. A number of Democrats have previously opposed some of the ideas in the bill.

When asked if he had the votes to pass the legislation as is, the leader said only, “We’ll see probably at later time.”

Reid plans a briefing for his Democrats Thursday from White House officials “for people who don’t understand it,” and leadership aides tell Fox that committee chairs have been encouraged to hold hearings, though none have yet been announced.

Meanwhile, Republicans hit the president for filling the bill with ideas that have “been around the track,” as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell put it Tuesday.

NEW YORK – Republicans have scored an upset victory in a House race that became a referendum on President Barack Obama’s economic policies.

Retired media executive and political novice Bob Turner defeated Democratic state Assemblyman David Weprin in a special election Tuesday to succeed Rep. Anthony Weiner, a seven-term Democrat who resigned in June after a sexting scandal.


“We’ve been asked by the people of this district to send a message to Washington,” Turner told supporters after the landmark win. “I hope they hear it loud and clear. We’ve been told this is a referendum. Mr. President, we are on the wrong track. We have had it with an irresponsible fiscal policy which endangers the entire economy.”

Weprin did not immediately concede.

The heavily Democratic district, which spans parts of Queens and Brooklyn, had never sent a Republican to the House. But frustration with the continued weak national economy gave Republicans the edge.

Turner has vowed to bring business practicality to Washington and push back on spending and taxes.

The race was supposed to be an easy win for Democrats, who have a 3-1 ratio registration advantage in the district.

Griffith Questions Officials About Solyndra and the DOE Loan Guarantee Program

For the past seven months, the O & I Subcommittee has been investigating the Department of Energy’s $535 million stimulus loan guarantee to the now-bankrupt Solyndra.

:: Why Did White House Support Solyndra? ::


WATCH Hearing LIVE

Obama administration officials raised a slew of concerns in 2009 over fears a solar energy project to be funded by the federal government would go broke in September 2011, emails released ahead of a congressional hearing Wednesday reveal. But the reality turned out to be much worse — the entire company went bust this month after receiving the half-billion-dollar government loan.

The emails show budget analysts felt rushed by the White House to review the $535 million loan guarantee in time for an announcement by Vice President Biden in September 2009. The concerns flared in August 2009 when staff with the Energy Department wrote of a “major outstanding issue,” relating to the project’s solvency.

But other administration officials presumed the parent company Solyndra, as well as private investors, would cushion the project and ensure its completion.

The company itself filed for bankruptcy this month, putting taxpayers on the hook for a loan that ended up being about $528 million. The FBI raided the company on Sept. 8.

A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Wednesday will probe how the loan was approved, at a hearing that’s part of a seven-month investigation.

One Republican aide said the emails released as part of that probe show the White House was more concerned with press events surrounding the loan than the soundness of Solyndra. The aide said “corners were cut.”
