Nun Megan Rice gets 3 years for Tennessee nuke plant break-in
Fellow activists Greg Boertje-Obed and Michael Walli sentenced to more than 5 years
An 84-year-old nun has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for breaking into and defacing a storage bunker holding bomb-grade uranium in a peace demonstration at a Tennessee weapons plant.
Megan Rice was sentenced Tuesday along with activists Greg Boertje-Obed and Michael Walli. The men were sentenced to more than five years in prison.
The three activists cut through three fences on July 28, 2012, and reached a storage bunker that holds the nation’s primary supply of bomb-grade uranium.
They painted messages, hung banners and threw blood on the bunker wall.
While officials claimed there was never any danger of the protesters reaching materials that could be detonated or used to assemble a dirty bomb, the break-in raised serious questions about security.

MSNBC Forced To Abandon ObamaCare Exchange Demonstration After Glitches
MSNBC, one of the biggest liberal media outlets that has played cheerleader to Obamacare, before, during and after it was passed attempted to show users how user friendly it was and ran into some problems. In fact, so many problems that they were forced to abandon the process after 35 minutes into the process.

A word of warning, the quality leaves much to be desired and the audio is extremely loud and distorted in the beginning. Despite this it is worth sharing, just turn the volume down in the beginning, way down.
The pro – marijuana demonstration was held today in Philadelphia, and as with most peaceful demonstrations, arrests were made. This seems a bit bizarre as I believe Philadelphia effectively decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana back around mid 2010. It would appear, based on the video, that the police had a predetermined mission and were waiting for their cue to move in. Not sure what were the charges, if any, against Adam Kokesh and the other participants arrested, or if any laws were even violated. Wondering how many serious crimes were taking place in the city of brotherly love while so many police were focused on this relatively small demonstration?

Duck Hunting Shotgun Proven To Be more Dangerous Than A Huldra AR-15
This is a video letter to Minnesota Congressman Rick Nolan, and Senators Amy Klobucher, and Al Franken. This video proves that a duck hunting shotgun is more destructive and lethal than a Huldra AR-15 modern sporting rifle.
(Reuters) – Police detained dozens of opposition protesters on Sunday at an Occupy-style rally against President Vladimir Putin in central Moscow.
Activists gathered near Red Square in front of the Kremlin and walked toward the popular Arbat pedestrian district, but were detained upon reaching the sit-in protest which began earlier this month.
Witnesses said riot police treated protesters who resisted roughly. “One man in his 50s was grabbed and carried away by his arms and legs. It was terrible,” said Natalia Pozdnyakova, 73, dressed in white, the color which has become the symbol of the protests.
Police told Russian news agency Interfax 35 people had been detained.
Earlier in the day, dozens of people were detained when Russian Orthodox Church activists clashed with gay rights protesters in central Moscow.
Though Russia’s protest movement began in response to accusations of voting fraud in a parliamentary election last year, Moscow protests have broadened the movement’s demands, reflecting anger over a range of issues from human rights to high-level corruption.
Putin’s return to the presidency on May 7 and a demonstration marred by violence before his inauguration added to resentment and sparked sit-in protests in the capital.
Putin’s top human rights adviser said on Sunday he would look into the reasons why people who were wearing white ribbons as a show of solidarity with the protest movement were being detained.
“By itself, wearing a white ribbon, just like a ribbon of any other color or white clothes or wearing clothes of any other color, is not a violation of administrative law,” Mikhail Fedotov told the Itar-Tass news agency.
“We have to understand on what grounds police are detaining people.”
