Veteran Representative Edward Markey of Massachusetts on Tuesday won the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry and helped Democrats maintain their majority in the chamber.
Markey claimed victory in a post on his official campaign Twitter page, saying: "Thank you Massachusetts! I am deeply honored for the opportunity to serve you in the United States Senate."
Local cable news station NECN said Markey secured 54 percent of the vote with 87 percent of districts reporting.
The win caps a campaign that Markey began in December, shortly after President Barack Obama said he wanted to appoint Kerry U.S. Secretary of State.
Hopefully, Russ Holt will win Frank Lautenberg's New Jersey Senate seat too.

Vietnam building new coal plants. Maybe we can go to war with them over greenhouse gases.
Not to mention the Russians.
Haven't you heard the news? China reached agreement with Obama at the G-8 summit to comply with the Montreal Protocol to eliminate greenhouse gasses.:-D

The Three Gorges Dam is an environmental disaster that could never be approved in the US. In fact, it is doubtful that any new hydropower project could be approved in the US.
China's coal-fired power plants generally lack emissions controls on sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides, which were being installed on US plants until Obama killed the industry.
Even if the US shuts down every coal-fired plant in the country, the new plants constructed in China will overwhelm any reduction in greenhouse gases.
And even more jobs will flee to China.
Thanks, Barack.
Much has been written about the reasons that China is dead set against allowing any cultural or political autonomy for Tibet. One reason is Tibetan mineral wealth. But the other huge reason is that the Tibetan Plateau - largest and highest plateau in the world - is the source of water for most if not all major watershed releases across Asia. The Ganges in India, the Mekong in Vietnam and the Yellow in China for example. He who controls Tibet controls the world. Water is transport, crops and energy.

China wants to grab the balls and give orders.

Supreme Court Strikes Down Racist Voting Laws...
Posted on June 25, 2013 by sundance
WASHINGTON DC - The Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act on Tuesday, the provision of the landmark civil rights law that designates which parts of the country must have changes to their voting laws cleared by the federal government or in federal court.
The court’s opinion said it did not strike down the act of Congress “lightly,” and said it “took care to avoid ruling on the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act” in a separate case back in 2009.“Congress could have updated the coverage formula at that time, but did not do so. Its failure to act leaves us today with no choice but to declare [Section 4] unconstitutional. The formula in that section can no longer be used as a basis for subjecting jurisdictions to preclearance.”

Can it live outside the womb at 12 weeks?
The point is a fetus has a beating heart, developed major organs and sucks its thumb by the end of the first trimester. The brain, spinal cord and cranial nerves have also begun to develop.

It is not viable outside the womb at 12 weeks' gestation, the end of the first trimester, but is a human by any definition.

Cory Booker will be New Jersey's next governor. Christie is running for President against Hillary in 2016. If Christie loses then he accepts Homeland Security Cabinet post in a President Hillary Clinton Cabinet.
