February 8, 2016 by legitgov

Highly radioactive leak found at New York nuclear plant | 07 Feb 2016 | Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling for an investigation after an apparent overflow at the Indian Point nuclear power plant spilled highly radioactive water into an underground monitoring well, but nuclear regulators said the public isn't at risk. Officials at Indian Point in Buchanan reported on Friday that water contaminated by tritium leaked into the groundwater under the facility. It was unclear how much water spilled, but samples showed the water had a radioactivity level of more than 8 million picocuries per liter, a 65,000 percent increase from the average at the plant, Cuomo said. The levels are the highest regulators have seen at Indian Point, and the normal number is about 12,300 picocuries per liter, Cuomo said.

U.S., 11 nations sign contested Trans-Pacific corporate takeover; Sanders vows to kill it if elected | 03 Feb 2016 | Representatives of a dozen nations met in New Zealand to sign the debated Trans-Pacific Partnership, which seeks to bolster economies and investments between the United States and a number of Pacific Rim governments. The TPP agreement was signed by the parties on Thursday, New Zealand time, during a formal ceremony in Auckland. Among the deal's opponents is a man who could succeed Obama in the White House -- Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who pledged Wednesday to kill the TPP agreement if he gets elected. "As your president, not only will I make sure that the TPP does not get implemented, I will not send any trade deal to Congress that will make it easier for corporations to outsource American jobs overseas," he said.

Jack Dorsey responds to #RIPTwitter: No plan to reorder timelines next week | 06 Feb 2016 | In a move designed to reassure the people who made the #RIPTwitter hashtag trend around the world today, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has gone on a charm offensive in a tweetstorm. He says "we never planned to reorder timelines next week." Whatever Twitter has planned, it's not switching to an algorithmic timeline next week. That doesn't mean it won't include more algorithmic elements over time of course.

Ron Paul: Cruz 'owned by Goldman Sachs'

February 6, 2016 by legitgov

Ron Paul: Cruz 'owned by Goldman Sachs' | 05 Feb 2016 | Former Rep. Ron Paul is lashing out at Ted Cruz, calling the GOP presidential contender too close to Wall Street. "People are liking Cruz. They think he’s for the free market, and he’s owned by Goldman Sachs," the former Texas lawmaker said on Fox Business Network's "Varney & Company," according to Politico...Ron Paul also praised Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. "On occasion, Bernie comes up with libertarian views when he talks about taking away the cronyism on Wall Street, so in essence he's right, and occasionally he voted against war," Paul added.

Brains behind Trump 'Nazi robocall' donated to Cruz campaign

February 6, 2016 by legitgov

Brains behind Trump 'Nazi robocall' donated to Cruz campaign | 06 Feb 2016 | Recent news emerged that a white supremacist super PAC, started by Council of Conservative Citizens spokesman, Jared Taylor, is making racial robocalls for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The robocall states: 'We don't need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated, white people.' But while the media is covering this item, reporters are failing to look a little deeper into the organization. Council of Conservative Citizens president, Earl Holt III (for whom Jared Taylor works), donated in this presidential cycle to Senator Ted Cruz's campaign. [Note: CLG edited (grammar, syntax, links additions) the original item for this summary.]

Investigative Reporter Can't Find Single Marco Rubio Voter Outside Rubio Rallies in NH

February 6, 2016 by legitgov

Investigative Reporter Can't Find Single Marco Rubio Voter Outside Rubio Rallies in NH [Right, only Microsoft can find them.] | 05 Feb 2016 | Matt Fuller writes in the Huffington Post: Admittedly, a Jeb Bush town hall and a Chris Christie restaurant visit are bad places to look for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) voters. And yet there I was, practically begging New Hampshire voters to tell me they had been leaning toward a GOP establishment candidate, but were now lining up behind Rubio to take down Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). "What do you make of the argument that establishment Republicans need to get behind Rubio because he's the only one who can beat Trump?" I asked, over and over, in some form or another, feeling as if the Rubio campaign should probably start paying me...Sorry, New Hampshire voters would say, knowing they were stepping all over my tidy little narrative.

The 198 images, taken between 2004 and 2006, are mostly blurry, grainy pictures showing detainees' arms and legs covered with bruises and cuts. According to Pentagon officials the images were linked to 56 cases of alleged abuse by U.S. forces, of which 14 cases were deemed to be valid, with 65 service personnel disciplined as a result...Friday's release echoes images leaked to the media a decade ago showing the apparent torture of prisoners at the now-notorious Abu Ghraib jail in Iraq.

February 6, 2016 by legitgov

Terrorism Suspects Are Posing as Refugees, Germany Says | 05 Feb 2016 | An Algerian couple, suspected of planning a terrorist attack in Berlin and arrested on suspicion of belonging to the Islamic State, entered Germany late last year and applied for asylum as Syrian refugees -- part of a pattern of terrorism suspects entering Europe under the guise of fleeing war, the German authorities said Friday. The police in Berlin published a photo they said was of the husband, showing a bearded man with his face blacked out, pointing a pistol at the camera, with two Kalashnikov rifles propped up beside him on a sofa strewn with other weapons. The photo was believed to have been taken in Syria, where German media reports said the man had received terrorist training with the Islamic State [I-CIA-SIS].

Iowa Democratic party altered precinct's caucus results

February 6, 2016 by legitgov

Iowa Democratic party altered precinct's caucus results | 05 Feb 2016 | In the Iowa Democratic party's chaotic attempt to report caucus results on Monday night, the results in at least one precinct were unilaterally changed by the party as it attempted to deal with the culmination of a rushed and imperfect process overseeing stealing the first-in-the-nation nominating contest. In Grinnell Ward 1, the precinct where elite liberal arts college Grinnell College is located, 19 delegates were awarded to Bernie Sanders and seven were awarded to Hillary Clinton on caucus night. However, the Iowa Democratic party decided to shift one delegate from Sanders to Clinton on the night and did not notify precinct secretary J Pablo Silva that they had done so. Silva only discovered that this happened the next day, when checking the precinct results in other parts of the county.

Twitter suspends over 125,000 accounts for 'promoting terrorist acts' | 06 Feb 2016 | Twitter Inc has shut down more than 125,000 terrorism-related accounts since the middle of 2015, most of them linked to the Islamic State group, the company said in a blog post on Friday. Twitter has said it only takes down accounts when they are reported by other users, but said that it has increased the size of teams monitoring and responding to reports and has decreased its response time "significantly." Twitter's announcement comes as many tech companies corpora-terrorists -- led by Facebook [FaCIAbook] -- have taken stronger steps to police controversial content online in the face of threats from legislators to force the companies to report "terrorist activity" on their sites to law enforcement.

UN panel urges UK and Sweden to end Julian Assange's 'deprivation of liberty'

February 5, 2016 by legitgov

UN panel urges UK and Sweden to end Julian Assange's 'deprivation of liberty' | 05 Feb 2016 | The WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arbitrarily detained by the UK and Sweden since he was arrested in London in December 2010, according to a United Nations report. As anticipated, the finding by the Geneva-based UN working group on arbitrary detention criticises legal action against Assange by both European governments and blames them for preventing him from leaving the Ecuadorian embassy in Knightsbridge. The panel calls on the Swedish and British authorities to end Assange's "deprivation of liberty", respect his physical integrity and freedom of movement and offer him compensation.

After Obama Signs Trans-Pacific Partnership, Sessions Demands Candidates Reveal Their Position on 'Trade' Deal

February 5, 2016 by legitgov

Why H-1B visa-loving Microsoft (Microsh*t) stole Iowa for low-polling corporatist fraud Rubio: After Obama Signs Trans-Pacific Partnership, Sessions Demands Candidates Reveal Their Position on 'Trade' Deal | 04 Feb 2016 | President Obama's trade representative signed the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, one of the largest multinational trade agreements [corporate takeover] in history. Following the signing of the agreement, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who has been the fiercest GOP opponent in Congress of President Obama's globalist trade agenda, called upon every elected official and every Presidential candidate to reveal "where they stand on the TPP." ...While every other top polling candidate has made his stance on the issue known, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is refusing to tell voters whether he will vote the TPP, which he previously endorsed as the "second pillar" of a President Rubio's three-pillar foreign policy strategy. Rubio also voted to fast-track the Trans-Pacific Partnership despite the fact that he continues to provide no evidence that he ever read the deal before doing so. However, Rubio is now refusing to reveal whether he will vote for the trade deal he endorses. Since Rubio has never retracted his support for TPP, it would thus be accurate to say he still regards the agreement as a "pillar" as his hoped-for Presidency.

Michigan emails show officials knew of Flint water disease risk | 04 Feb 2016 | Emails between high-ranking Michigan state officials show they knew about an uptick in Legionnaires' disease and it could be linked to problems with Flint water long before Governor Rick Snyder (R-Terrorist) said he got information on the outbreak. A spokesman for Snyder rejected the report by the liberal group Progress Michigan on Thursday. Emails obtained by the group show Snyder's principal aide, Harvey Hollins, was made aware of the outbreak and a possible link to the use of Flint River water last March. Snyder said in January he had just learned about the rise in Legionnaires cases.

Heads up! Microsoft's Iowa Vote 'Count' a Dry Run for Bigger Corporate Role in U.S. Election Process | 02 Feb 2016 | The use of Microsoft’s vote-counting rigging technology in Monday's Iowa Caucus may foreshadow a future in which corporate technology plays a central role in U.S. elections [sic], raising concerns about the possibility of private firms skewing the democratic process. In a disclosure largely unreported by the news media last year, President Obama's Special Commission on Election Reform recommended that commercial software and computers, such as iPads, be used to accurately record and count Americans' votes -- even though companies' financial interests can be helped or hurt by the outcome of those elections...Already, some political participants are raising the alarm about Microsoft leaders' ties to presidential candidates.

Julian Assange says he will 'accept arrest' on Friday if UN rules against him | 04 Feb 2016 | The WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he will agree to be arrested by British police on Friday if a UN investigation into his three-and-a-half years holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in central London does not rule that he is being illegally detained. Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy since June 2012, after Swedish authorities sought his extradition. He has not been charged with any offence, but has been sought for questioning in Sweden in relation to sexual assault allegations made against by two women [CIA trolls] against him. The United Nations working group on arbitrary detention is set to hand down a determination on Assange's case on Friday morning.

First U.S. Zika virus transmission reported, attributed to sex | 03 Feb 2016 | The first known case of Zika virus transmission in the United States was reported in Texas on Tuesday by local health officials, who said it likely was contracted through sex and not a mosquito bite, a day after the World Health Organization declared an international public health emergency. Zika had been thought to be spread by the bite of mosquitoes of the Aedes genus, so sexual contact as a mode of transmission would be a potentially alarming development. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed it was the first U.S. Zika case in someone who had not traveled abroad in the current outbreak, said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden on Twitter.

Clinton's campaign declared victory even before the final tallies were released. Weaver said his campaign is reviewing tally sheets and "looking into a few other issues," which he declined to name.
