July 30, 2014 by legitgov

Breaking: House Republicans Authorize Lawsuit Against Obama 30 July 2014 House Republicans on Wednesday voted to authorize a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for his use of executive actions...In a strict party-line 225-201 vote, Republican approved the legislation that accuses the president of exceeding his Constitutional authority by changing how his signature health care legislation was implemented. The measure does not require Senate approval. No Democrats voted for the bill. [When unelected sociopath George W. Bush/Dick Cheney had over 3,000 people murdered on 9/11, waterboarded people, had anthrax sent from Fort Detrick to pressure Democrats to vote for the anti-democratic PATRIOT Act -- where was the *lawsuit???*]

July 30, 2014 by legitgov

Broken water main floods UCLA; 5 people rescued 30 July 2014 A broken water main near the UCLA campus Tuesday sent a geyser of water some 30 feet into the air, trapping people in underground parking garages and covering some of the best-known parts of campus in water, including the school's famed basketball arena. The 30-inch, 93-year-old pipe that broke under nearby Sunset Boulevard made a raging river of the street and sent millions of gallons of water across the school's athletic facilities, including the famed floor of Pauley Pavilion, as well as a pair of parking structures that took the brunt of the damage. [If US taxpayers didn't have to pay for Israel's (and Kiev's) war crimes, there'd be funds available to fix 93-year-old pipes. --LRP]

Gaza's only power plant destroyed in Israel's most intense air strike yet --At least 100 Palestinians killed as TV and radio outlets, mosque and refugee camp all targeted as calls for ceasefire dismissed 29 July 2014 Flames and clouds of black smoke billowed over Gaza's only power plant on Tuesday after it was destroyed during the most relentless and widespread Israeli bombardment of the current conflict. At least 100 people were killed, according to Gaza health officials. "The power plant is finished," said its director, Mohammed al-Sharif, signalling a new crisis for Gaza's 1.8 million people, who were already enduring power cuts of more than 20 hours a day. Amnesty International said the crippling of the power station amounted to "collective punishment of Palestinians". The strike on the plant will worsen already severe problems with Gaza's water supply, sewage treatment and power supplies to medical facilities.

July 29, 2014 by legitgov

Conference committee approves $17B VA health bill 29 July 2014 House and Senate negotiators on Tuesday approved a $17 billion compromise bill to overhaul the Department of Veterans Affairs and reform a program scandalized by veterans' long waits for health care and VA workers falsifying records to cover up delays.

The action comes as the Senate is set to vote Tuesday to confirm former Procter & Gamble CEO Robert McDonald as the new VA secretary, replacing Acting Secretary Sloan Gibson.

Obama planning to give 'millions of illegal immigrants work permits and save them from deportation'

July 29, 2014 by legitgov

Obama's *huge* gift to his bosses, Wall Street and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce: More low-wage labor, subsidized by the US taxpayer, which spurs the downward spiral of wages: Obama planning to give 'millions of illegal immigrants work permits and save them from deportation' --Among the proposals: giving work permits to parents of children legally residing in the U.S. 29 July 2014 Even as they grapple with an immigration crisis at the border, White House officials are making plans to act before November's mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally, allowing them to stay in the United States without threat of deportation, according to advocates and lawmakers in touch with the administration...Advocates and lawmakers who were in separate meetings Friday said that administration officials are weighing a range of options including reforms to the deportation system and ways to grant relief from deportation to targeted populations in the country, likely by expanding Obama's two-year-old directive that granted work permits to certain immigrants brought here illegally as youths. That program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, has been extended to more than 500,000 immigrants so far...At the same time, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says it is actively working to determine whether there are steps Obama could take by executive action that could help the business community.

Abbott's mission to Ukraine branded 'nuts' 27 July 2014 Australian Defence Force personnel will be walking unprepared into a volatile situation at the MH17 crash site in Ukraine, a senior defence figure has warned. Prime Minister Tony Abbott's announcement of Australia's intention to send 190 armed Australian Federal Police and an unknown number of ADF personnel to help recover bodies and evidence from the site has been met with incredulity in some parts of Europe, with one analyst branding it "nuts". The senior defence figure, who did not wish to be named, said it was a poor idea for Australia.

July 29, 2014 by legitgov

US says Russia violated 1987 nuclear missile treaty, calls breach 'a very serious matter' 28 July 2014 In an escalation of tensions, the Obama administration accused Russia on Monday of conducting tests in violation of a 1987 nuclear missile treaty, calling the breach "a very serious matter" and going public with allegations that have simmered for some time. The treaty confrontation comes at a highly strained time between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin over Russia's [actually, US and NATO] intervention in [the coup-installed regime in the] Ukraine and Putin's grant of asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. An administration official said Obama notified Putin of the U.S. determination in a letter Monday. [The US violates international treaties every minute of every hour of every day. The hypocrisy is just *breath-taking.* --LRP]

Repeal Prohibition, Again

July 29, 2014 by legitgov

Repeal Prohibition, Again (The New York Times) 27 July 2014 It took 13 years for the United States to come to its senses and end Prohibition, 13 years in which people kept drinking, otherwise law-abiding citizens became criminals and crime syndicates arose and flourished. It has been more than 40 years since Congress passed the current ban on marijuana, inflicting great harm on society just to prohibit a substance far less dangerous than alcohol. The federal government should repeal the ban on marijuana. We reached that conclusion after a great deal of discussion among the members of The Times's Editorial Board, inspired by a rapidly growing movement among the states to reform marijuana laws.

OMG: Israel in urgent need of more US money for war on Gaza: Harry Reid 28 July 2014 US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid [apparently, also a sociopath] says Israel urgently needs more financial aid from the United States for its offensive against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

'Seemingly endless waste:' Pentagon auditor spotlights US billions blown in Afghanistan 28 July 2014 Another day, another report of rampant waste of U.S. taxpayer money in the effort to rebuild Afghanistan fill US corpora-terrorists' coffers. John Sopko, the inspector general charged with monitoring aid sent by the U.S. to Afghanistan, has identified potentially billions of dollars wasted in Afghanistan, including donation of planes the local government doesn't need or can't use, weapons that disappear as soon as they're handed over and and construction of brand new buildings that are basically firetraps. In a steady stream of audit reports, Sopko's office of Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, has spotlighted seemingly endless waste in the war-torn nation. In recent days, Sopko's team has reported: Afghanistan probably can't even use two $40.5 million C-130 transport planes the U.S. government plans to give to its motley air force.

Intl. teams find 'no violations' by Russia along Ukrainian border 27 July 2014 Inspectors who came to check the state of Russian troops along the Ukrainian borders have found no violations, Russia's Ministry of Defense said.
