Shell's profits fall as protests mount over Arctic drilling

July 31, 2015 by legitgov

Shell's profits fall as protests mount over Arctic drilling [Awesome!] | 30 July 2015 | Dozens of activists with Greenpeace and Rising Tide blockaded the mouth of Portland’s Willamette River Thursday, dangling from a bridge and swarming the waters -- all in an effort to prevent Shell from launching a ship it needs to begin advanced drilling for oil in the Alaskan Arctic. The bold plan seems to working, too. As the sun bobbed up over the Pacific, one of the activists on the bridge shot footage of Shell's ice breaker appearing to turn back as cheers erupted from a group of supporters. Under the terms of Shell's drilling plan, [insanely] approved in May by the Obama administration, the company has to have the ship on site because it carries a special Arctic-ready spill containment system.

MSNBC Cancels 'The Cycle,' 'NOW With Alex Wagner,' and 'The Ed Show' [but keeps FBI snitch, corporatist fraud and TPP-pimp Al Sharpton?! The cancellation of pea-brain Alex Wagner's show was, however, acceptable.] | 30 July 2015 | Multiple reports today seem to confirm what Mediaite first reported last week: MSNBC is officially pulling the plug on 'The Cycle.' The reports also confirm Joe Concha's reporting that 'NOW With Alex Wagner' and 'The Ed Show' have been axed...Chuck Todd [#FireChuckTodd] will anchor a show in the 5 pm slot.

Bernie Sanders criticizes Koch 'open borders' low-wage labor proposal at Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

July 30, 2015 by legitgov

Bernie Sanders criticizes Koch 'open borders' low-wage labor proposal at Hispanic Chamber of Commerce | 30 July 2015 | Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) found himself at odds with some immigration reform advocates Thursday, defending his 2007 vote against a comprehensive immigration bill and telling an audience hosted by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce that "open borders" were a threat to American jobs. "There is a reason that Wall Street likes immigration reform," Sanders said. "What I think they're interested in is seeing a process by which we can bring low-wage labor into this county." [*Exactly.*] Sanders was asked if he could favor "sharply raising the level of immigration we permit, even up to a level of open borders." The Vermont senator vehemently disagreed. "That's a Koch brothers proposal," he said. "What right-wing people [and Obama] in this country would love is an open-border policy. Bring in all kinds of people, work for $2 or $3 an hour, that would be great for them. I don't believe in that."

Number on Reunion Island debris corresponds to Boeing 777 component

July 30, 2015 by legitgov

Number on Reunion Island debris corresponds to Boeing 777 component | 30 July 2015 | Boeing investigators are confident that debris found on a remote island in the Indian Ocean comes from a 777 aircraft, according to a source close to the investigation. An international team of aviation experts is trying to determine if that airplane part comes from Malaysia Airlines flight 370, a Boeing 777 that disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board. A match might help solve the mystery of what happened to that that airplane, since no other 777s in the world are unaccounted for, according to the Aviation Safety Network, an online database of flight incidents. People cleaning a beach found the debris Wednesday on Reunion, a French overseas territory in the western Indian Ocean.

July 30, 2015 by legitgov

Activists Hang From Oregon's St. Johns Bridge to Protest Shell's Arctic Oil Drilling | 29 July 2015 | At least a dozen climbers with Greenpeace were dangling from a Portland, Oregon, bridge on Wednesday morning -- and threatened to do so for days -- in protest of Shell's scheduled launch of a ship for Arctic oil exploration. The stunt on the St. Johns Bridge comes after protesters gathered in a Portland park Tuesday evening, and planned to drop kayaks in the water in a bid to stop the Royal Dutch Shell from leaving port. The ship was scheduled Wednesday to depart for Alaskan waters.

Trump leads Republican presidential race with 25 percent: Reuters-Ipsos poll

July 30, 2015 by legitgov

Trump leads Republican presidential race with 25 percent: Reuters-Ipsos poll | 29 July 2015 | Billionaire Donald Trump has taken a commanding lead in the race for the 2016 U.S. Republican presidential nomination with the support of 25 percent in a Reuters/Ipsos poll, giving him a double-digit advantage over nearest rival Jeb Bush. The poll shows Bush, the former Florida governor, trailing at 12 percent.  It is a huge jump for Trump, who announced his candidacy for the November 2016 election six weeks ago - and this despite the criticism political rivals leveled at him for remarks this month belittling the military service of Senator John McCain [after McCain belittled Trump's supporters, first], the party's candidate in 2008.

Cecil the lion's killer donated $5,000 to Mitt Romney [Well, knock me over with a medium-sized feather!] | 29 July 2015 | The Minnesota dentist who authorities say killed a beloved Zimbabwe lion named Cecil donated to Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign. Federal Elections Commission (FEC) forms show Walter James Palmer, a dentist in Eden Prairie, Minn., donated $5,000 to the Romney campaign in 2012. Palmer also donated $250 to former Rep. Jim Ramstad (R-Minn.) in 1990 and $250 to Ramstad in 1992.

Israel, Not Iran, Started Middle East Nuclear Arms Race

July 30, 2015 by legitgov

Israel, Not Iran, Started Middle East Nuclear Arms Race | 29 July 2015 | The debate about the P5+1 agreement with Iran on its nuclear program has already produced a storm of angry rhetoric and a tsunami of opinion pieces. But one issue is notably absent from the debate: the fact that Israel has a nuclear weapons arsenal and sophisticated delivery systems that are decades ahead of anything Iran could develop in the foreseeable future. Iran should be constrained by a global regime from getting the bomb, but the notion that Israel is a weak powerless state like Czechoslovakia in 1938 is ludicrous. The American intelligence community first detected the development of the Israeli nuclear weapons program through U-2 overhead imagery at the end of the 1950s.

Debris looks like Boeing 777, could be MH370, says source

July 29, 2015 by legitgov

Debris looks like Boeing 777, could be MH370, says source | 29 July 2015 | Apparent airplane debris found off the coast of Reunion island, a French department in the western Indian Ocean, is being examined to see if it is connected to the 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a member of the French air force in Reunion said Wednesday. The debris was found off the coast of St. Andre, a community on the island, according to Adjutant Christian Retournat. Officials from Boeing, which built the 777 that was MH370, conducted an initial assessment of the debris using photographs and their findings suggest the debris is consistent in appearance with a Boeing 777's flaperon, which is a piece of the plane's wing, a source close to the investigation told CNN.

University cop indicted for murder in shooting of motorist Samuel DuBose | 29 July 2015 | University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing was indicted Wednesday on a murder charge in the shooting death of Samuel DuBose. If convicted, Tensing could go to prison for life, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said in a news conference. Deters played body camera footage of the traffic stop shooting that appeared to contradict Tensing's version of what happened. The prosecutor, who said he was shocked when he first saw the video, was adamant DuBose, who is black, had not acted aggressively toward Tensing, who is white.

Exhausted forest firefighters refuse to sing O Canada for Harper

Exhausted forest firefighters refuse to sing O Canada for Harper | 25 July 2015 | Prime Minister Stephen Harper is getting slammed on social media for having a group of front-line firefighters pulled out of the smoky hills near this bustling B.C. city so they could pose with him for a patriotic, pre-election picture. But things didn't go quite as planned for Harper's advance team of organizers. The selected firefighters were so tired and annoyed that they just silently watched Harper as he waved his arms around like a conductor and tried to get them to sing along with him in a rousing chorus of O Canada...And none of them accepted the "Canada's Better With Harper" t-shirts that the PM's bodyguards were handing out.

GOP congressman launches bid to oust John Boehner as House speaker | 28 July 2015 | A Republican congressman has filed a request to oust House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) in a new and unusual challenge to his leadership from the GOP's right flank. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Tuesday evening filed a "motion to vacate the chair," which, if successful, would force the election of a new speaker. Such a challenge has never before succeeded in the House, and only once before -- 105 years ago -- has it been attempted.

American accused of killing African lion convicted in '06 bear hunt | 28 July 2015 | An avid Minnesota hunter accused of illegally killing a protected lion in Zimbabwe has a felony on his record related to shooting a black bear in Wisconsin, according to federal court records. [Sociopath] Walter Palmer, 55, of the Minneapolis suburb of Eden Prairie, pleaded guilty in 2008 to making false statements to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service about a black bear he fatally shot in western Wisconsin. Palmer had a permit to hunt but shot the animal outside the authorized zone in 2006, then tried to pass it off as being killed elsewhere, according to court documents.

American Hunter [Terrorist] Killed Cecil, Beloved Lion That Was Lured Out of Its Sanctuary --Walter Palmer was convicted in a 2006 black bear hunt, too. Too bad Cecil -- or anyone -- was unable to shoot this sociopath, *first.* | 28 July 2015 | Cecil, a 13-year-old lion, wandered out of his sanctuary in a national park in Zimbabwe this month, following the scent of a potential snack. At the other end of Cecil's search was a lure, placed there by hunters who, conservationists say, wanted their prey to cross into unprotected territory so they could kill him. Cecil, well known to those who visited the Hwange National Park in western Zimbabwe for his jet black mane, was beheaded, according to conservation officials. His corpse was left to rot in the sun. Zimbabwean officials said that Dr. Walter J. Palmer, an American hunter known for killing big game with a bow and arrow, killed Cecil, and was being sought on poaching charges.

U.S. to parole convicted Israeli spy Pollard on Nov. 21

July 29, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. to parole convicted Israeli spy Pollard on Nov. 21 | 28 July 2015 | Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst convicted of spying for Israel, will be released on parole on Nov. 21 after 30 years in prison, a federal parole board ruled on Tuesday. Pollard's planned release, which was quickly welcomed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would remove a longstanding irritant in U.S.-Israel relations at a time of increased friction between the two close allies over President Barack Obama's landmark nuclear deal with Iran. The U.S. Justice Department helped smooth the way for the freeing of Pollard, who was already eligible for mandatory parole in November, by declining to raise objections that could have delayed his release, Pollard's attorneys said.

U.S. military sees more use of laser, microwave weapons | 28 July 2015 | The U.S. military has made strides in developing lasers, microwaves and other directed energy weapons, and could soon use them more widely, top armed forces officials and U.S. lawmakers told an industry conference on Tuesday. The officials described weapons that are in various stages of development and testing by the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Army, but said more work was needed to scale up the technology for larger weapons, develop tactics for their use, and ensure sufficient funding. The military has been working on such weapons for decades, but says many technology challenges have finally been addressed.

U.S. Navy investigates report of cancer cluster at Guantanamo

July 28, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. Navy investigates report of cancer cluster at Guantanamo | 27 July 2015 | The U.S. Navy is investigating a complaint that seeks the evacuation of civilian and military lawyers from parts of the U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, following reports of cancer cases among personnel working on the trials of detainees prisoners there. At least seven civilians and military members who worked on detainee trials [sic] at Guantanamo Bay have been diagnosed with cancer, according to the complaint, which was filed with the U.S. Defense Department's Office of the Inspector General. The complaint calls on American military officials to remove personnel from court facilities on the base and test them and the base itself for carcinogens. The complaint claims that an unusually large number of relatively healthy and young people who worked at the base have been diagnosed with cancer. [As Shakespeare said--and the US government is apparently doing: "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."]

Holistic Hate Crimes? 8 Florida Doctors Dead and 5 Missing in Past Month

July 27, 2015 by legitgov

Holistic Hate Crimes? 8 Florida Doctors Dead and 5 Missing in Past Month --Holistic medicine: What a dangerous profession! Another Florida Doctor Murdered, Bringing Total to 8 Dead and 5 Missing in Just the Last Month | 24 July 2015 | Last week we reported on a number of doctors, many from the Southeastern U.S., who had been killed, died under questionable circumstances or had simply vanished without a trace. Just one week later, another three doctors have been reported dead, with one being found shot to death inside of his Florida home...Information about the five missing doctors can be found here. While all of these deaths could be nothing more than strange coincidences, we'd be remiss in not noting the fact that all of the doctors mentioned, sans Dr. Gonzales, practiced in the Southeastern United States, specifically in the Florida/Georgia region.

Huckabee: Barack Obama will march Israelis to 'the door of the oven' with Iran Deal

July 26, 2015 by legitgov

Huckabee: Barack Obama will march Israelis 'to the door of the oven' with Iran Deal | 26 July 2015 | Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee this weekend escalated the rhetoric over President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, saying that the pending agreement "will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven." The reference to the Holocaust -- in which Jews were killed in Nazi gas chambers and their bodies cremated in ovens -- created a backlash Sunday on Twitter, with numerous users condemning Huckabee's remarks. Huckabee, who is scrambling to gain attention in a 2016 presidential race dominated recently by GOP candidate Donald Trump, is known for being especially pro-Israel, even among a field of Republican candidates who voice support for the country. [My comment in the PentaPost's 'Comments' section: 'Washington Post' author of this article, Jerry Markon, is giving Mike Huckabee a pass with his deceptive story headline: "Huckabee: Iran nuclear deal will march Israelis 'to the door of the oven'." Huckabee said *Barack Obama* 'will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven' -- not the Iran deal itself. There is a universe of difference. Stop continuously covering for the GOP and the corporations that run it. (Here is the CLG version of the story: Huckabee: Barack Obama will march Israelis to 'the door of the oven' with Iran Deal.) --LRP]
