Federal Court Rules: 11 Foreign Countries May Join Lawsuit Against Arizona

In a new twist in the fight over Arizona’s immigration law, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer on Tuesday asked a federal court to disallow foreign governments from joining the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit to overturn the law.

The move comes in response to a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued Monday, allowing nearly a dozen Latin American countries — Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile — to submit friend-of-the-court briefs in Justice’s challenge to SB 1070, which Brewer signed into law in April and is considered one of the nation’s toughest immigration-enforcement measures.

“As do many citizens, I find it incredibly offensive that these foreign governments are using our court system to meddle in a domestic legal dispute and to oppose the rule of law,” the Republican governor said in a statement shortly after the state’s motion was filed Tuesday evening.

“What’s even more offensive is that this effort has been supported by the U.S. Department of Justice. American sovereignty begins in the U.S. Constitution and at the border,” she added. “I am confident the 9th Circuit will do the right thing and recognize foreign interference in U.S. legal proceedings and allow the State of Arizona to respond to their brief.”

White House ‘Blocked Gulf Oil Spill Studies’

The White House has been strongly criticised for blocking the publication of information on possible worst-case scenarios following the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

A draft report by the National Oil Spill Commission appeared to suggest the Obama administration was directly involved in controlling the oil spill message.

More than 206m gallons (780m litres) of oil leaked into the Gulf before the well was finally plugged on July 15.

It has become the worst offshore oil leak in US history.

The panel, which was set up by Barack Obama, found the White House denied an early request by government scientists to inform the public of its worst-case predictions.

This move may have affected the speed with which resources were assembled to fight the spill, the draft report claimed.

Furthermore, the government was “over-optimistic” about the BP’s ability to bring the ruptured well under control.

President Obama might be feeling a little miffed at the results of the draft report from his oil spill commission. The experts suggest his administration was either not fully competent or not fully candid in the response to the spill.

“Though some of the command structure was put in place very quickly, in other respects the mobilisation of resources to combat the spill seemed to lag,” it said.

The White House has disputed the preliminary findings of the report, adding officials were “clear with the public”.

Following the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion on April 20, it took BP nearly eight weeks to stop millions of barrels of oil leaking into the ocean.

Large sections of the Gulf of Mexico were closed to fishing, hundreds of miles of shoreline were polluted and the coastal economy, including tourism and fisheries, was disrupted.

Warning to Glenn Beck: Don’t Drink Diet Coke

On Friday, Glenn Beck announced on his radio show that he will be taking a brief leave of absence for medical reasons. “There is something wrong with my voice, and we’re not sure what it is,” Beck said, according to a transcript on his website. “They’re going to be doing CAT scans and MREs or MRIs and PET scans and they’re going to be doing blood work like crazy.”

In July, the Fox News host admitted that he is suffering from macular dystrophy, an eye disorder that causes vision loss. “Yes, I have a problem with my eyes,” Beck told an audience of 6,000 in Salt Lake City. “A couple of weeks ago, I went to the doctor because I can’t focus my eyes … So I went to the best doctor I could find… he did all kinds of tests, and he said I have macular dystrophy.”

Glenn Beck may not know it, but it is almost certain he is another victim of Rumsfeld Plague. On September 29, the New York Times published a long article about Beck. “His Mormonism forbids coffee, but he consumes a lot of Diet Coke and chocolate,” writes Mark Leibovich.

Coca-Cola began putting the “sugar substitute” aspartame in Diet Coke in 1982. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death.
