Wisconsin voter ID foes ask court to reconsider

voter idCivil rights advocates have officially filed a petition asking a federal appeals court to reconsider a ruling that reinstated Wisconsin's voter photo identification law.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Advancement Project are challenging the Republican-authored law. A federal judge blocked the measure earlier this year but a three-judge panel of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday that Wisconsin election officials could implement the law while that court considers the case. As a result, The state Government Accountability Board, which oversees Wisconsin elections, has been working feverishly to get the law in place in time for the Nov. 4 elections.

Israel’s N.S.A. Scandal

israel's NSA scandalIn Moscow this summer, while reporting a story for Wired magazine, I had the rare opportunity to hang out for three days with Edward J. Snowden. It gave me a chance to get a deeper understanding of who he is and why, as a National Security Agency contractor, he took the momentous step of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents.

Among his most shocking discoveries, he told me, was the fact that the N.S.A. was routinely passing along the private communications of Americans to a large and very secretive Israeli military organization known as Unit 8200. This transfer of intercepts, he said, included the contents of the communications as well as metadata such as who was calling whom.

CIA and the National Archives Thwart The JFK Act and Obstruct Democratic Accountability

top secret JFKAll records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy ("JFK") are already supposed to be public. That's what Congress intended when it unanimously passed the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 ("JFK Act"). It hasn't happened. The National Archives and the CIA are still withholding thousands of pages of JFK Act records in their entirety, even though it has been more than a half century since the Warren Commission issued its Report on the murder of the President.

NARA's actions violate the law and its intent, and severely erode the principle of democratic accountability, on which America's government is based. This violation directly raises the issue of who writes the law, who rules in the United States: the elected representatives of the people in Congress or the intelligence agencies?

Trump Plaza closes its doors, becomes 4th Atlantic City casino to close this year

Trump casino closesThe supervisor drew his finger in a slashing motion moments after the final hand of blackjack had been dealt at Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino.

And with that, gambling was done.

The 30-year-old casino at the heart of the Boardwalk shut its doors at 6 a.m. Tuesday, becoming the fourth Atlantic City casino to close this year. Beset by crushing debt, fleeing customers and run-down facilities, Trump Plaza had been the town's worst-performing casino for years. This year, it has won about the same amount from gamblers that the Borgata takes in every two weeks. And at pennies on the dollar, no one wanted to buy it.
