Growing Number of Dems Face Reality on Terror Trials -
Shuler Still AWOL Despite Public Pressure

PRESS RELEASE

Subject: WNC GOP Immediate Release: Growing Number of Dems Face Reality on Terror Trials - Shuler Still AWOL Despite Public Pressure

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/28/nyregion/28bloomberg.html
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2010/01/28/2010-01-28_chuck_gilly_ok_moving_911_trial.html
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/78347-first-house-dem-requests-911-trial-to-be-moved-
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/28/AR2010012802925.html


In the past 48 hours, Senators Gillibrand, Schumer, Lincoln and Webb and House Member Velázquez and Governor Paterson - all Democrats - have asked that the White House reverse its dangerous and unnecessary decision to try the 9/11 terrorists in NYC.

This is still far from the GOP position that the idea of civilian trials anywhere on US soil should be blocked but it is a start.

However, despite waves of phone calls following the GOP's ad in the Asheville C-T, the Hendersonville T-N, the Smoky Mt. News, and the Tryon Daily Bulletin asking voters to demand that Shuler take any position on this issue, he is still in hiding.

On the Keep Terrorists Out Of America Act - Shuler is still silent.

On this call from fellow Democrats to spare NYC this security nightmare - Shuler is silent.

On the bill to block any funding for the transfer of any detainee at Guantanamo to US soil - Shuler is silent.

Would it take the White House moving these trials or detainess to WNC to shame Shuler in to taking a stand? If he is not opposing Obama on these policies, then he is supporting them.

Winter Storm Warning for Western North Carolina


The snow sirens are going full-tilt. I'm cranking mine as well. This storm appears that it will be more widespread than the previous ones this season, so I'd advise that you go to town, get some groceries, batteries and top off your vehicle's fuel tank. If your vehicle is a bicycle...you are screwed in that regard. FEMA has a handy-dandy checklist of things you should be doing to prepare for winter weather. Get Thee Hence.

And please, once the snow starts laying...STAY OFF THE ROADS.

If you have an emergency, call 911. If you get Cabin Fever, tough it out and stay put.

What ever you do, please check The National Weather Service for the latest updates on this potentially dangerous event. You can also keep checking the GSP Winter Weather Briefing Page and also check out Twitter, which has evolved into a pretty decent information interchange over the past year. Sample Search String.

Search String Minus #avlsnOMG clutter. (most of it is ReTweets once a storm gets rolling, so it becomes useless to someone who is just scanning for information)


Here is what NOAA All Hazards Radio is saying for my neck of the woods...





This is a forecast of how much snow we can expect...




And this is the official warning for my area...

Winter Storm Watch for WNC Mountains
Ice Storm possible for Piedmont/Foothills



As the graphic above indicates, we might be in for some winter weather in the next 48 hours or so. Please keep checking for updated information, as this is a fluid situation and the forecast is not yet firmed down.

The National Weather Serive is being very coy about putting amounts of forecasted snow on their maps...just a vague 4 to 10 inches. On the pin-point forecasts, all I'm seeing is 1/2 an inch or so. Maybe that will change as the models start to agree with one another.

The forecast from NOAA All Hazards Radio:



Anyhow, here is the Winter watch Statement for the National Weather Service:


URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREENVILLE-SPARTANBURG SC

International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Germans being confronted with their legacy of murder by Allied troops


Today is the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The real Holocaust Remembrance Day takes place on the 27th day of Nisan on the Hebrew calendar. It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising. In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah. When the actual date of Yom Hashoah falls on a Friday, the state of Israel observes Yom Hashoah on the preceding Thursday. When it falls on a Sunday, Yom Hashoah is observed on the following Monday. This year it will fall on Sunday, April 11th, so it will be observed on Monday, April 12th.

January 27th is the day when the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp was liberated by Soviet forces.

From Wikipedia:

Auschwitz was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated in occupied Poland by Nazi Germany during the Second World War. It was the largest of the German concentration camps, consisting of Auschwitz I (the Stammlager or main camp); Auschwitz II-Birkenau (the Vernichtungslager or extermination camp); Auschwitz III-Monowitz, also known as Buna, a labor camp; and 45 satellite camps.[1]

Auschwitz is the German name for Oświęcim, the town the camps were located in and around; it was renamed by the Germans after they invaded Poland in September 1939. Birkenau, the German translation of Brzezinka (birch tree), refers to a small Polish village nearby that was mostly destroyed by the Germans to make way for the camp.

Auschwitz II-Birkenau was designated by Heinrich Himmler, Germany's Minister of the Interior, as the locus of the "final solution of the Jewish question in Europe." From spring 1942 until the fall of 1944, transport trains delivered Jews to the camp's gas chambers from all over Nazi-occupied Europe.[2] The camp's first commandant, Rudolf Höss, testified after the war at the Nuremberg Trials that up to three million people had died there, a figure since revised to 1.1 million, around 90 percent of them Jews.[3] Others deported to Auschwitz included 150,000 Poles, 23,000 Roma and Sinti, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and tens of thousands of other nationalities.[4] Those not killed in the gas chambers died of starvation, forced labor, lack of disease control, individual executions, and purported medical experiments.[5]

On January 27, 1945, Auschwitz was liberated by Soviet troops, a day commemorated around the world as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In 1947, Poland founded a museum on the site of Auschwitz I and II, which by 1994 had seen 22 million visitors—700,000 annually—pass through the iron gates crowned with the infamous motto, Arbeit macht frei ("work makes you free").



And this short segment from CNN allows you to hear from three survivors of that network of camps where over a million people were murdered by the German National Socialist Workers Party, better known as Nazis...





Here is a fictional dramatization of Auschwitz as portrayed in "War and Remembrance"...


May we never forget what happened...

May we never allow it to happen again...

A Brief History of a Tornado Warning
01/24/2010

Graphic Courtesy Iowa State University

**7.02pm** Yes, I've typed 2009 instead of 2010 in several places. LOL. I'll fix the map later.



The area above was placed under a Tornado Warning by the National Weather Service for a brief time this afternoon after radar indicated conditions favored the formation of a tornado in Henderson and Buncombe Counties in western North Carolina.

I posted a radar image of the vortex on Twitter via TwitPic.



Here is the way the regional map for the GSP Office of the National Weather Service looked at the time the Tornado warning was issued:
