June 22, 2016 by legitgov

Marco Rubio will seek Senate reelection, reversing pledge not to run | 22 June 2016 | Ending weeks of political speculation, [corporatist dirt-bag] Marco Rubio announced Wednesday he has changed his mind and will run for re-election to the U.S. Senate [with the worst attendance record in the Senate], reversing his pledge to return to private life after his presidential campaign collapsed three months ago. Rubio cited a sense of duty to try to remain in office under either President Donald Trump or President Hillary Clinton -- two candidates he considers sub-par. [Hello, Pot? This is Kettle...] National Republicans fearful of losing Senate control to Democrats mounted a campaign to keep Rubio on the ballot for Florida's swing seat. He consented just two days before Friday's state candidate-qualifying deadline.

June 22, 2016 by legitgov

Two L.A.-area wildfires threaten to merge after forcing evacuations | 22 June 2016 | Two rapidly growing wildfires burning a few miles apart through drought-parched foothills northeast of Los Angeles prompted the evacuation of nearly 800 homes on Tuesday, as a heat wave continued to bake much of the U.S. Southwest for a third straight day. Abnormally high temperatures climbing into the high 90s and triple digits across much of the region helped stoke wildfires from the coastal hills outside Santa Barbara to desert brush near the Mexican border, and several other Western states. Fires also were menacing populated areas in New Mexico, Arizona and along the Colorado-Wyoming border.

June 21, 2016 by legitgov

Deal will close California's last nuclear plant by 2025 | 21 June 2016 | California's last nuclear power plant will close by 2025 under an accord announced Tuesday, ending three decades of safety debates that helped fuel the national anti-nuclear power movement. The state's largest utility, Pacific Gas & Electric Co., and environmental groups announced the agreement on the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant, which sits along a Pacific Ocean bluff on California's central coast. Environmentalists had pressed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for years to close Diablo, given its proximity to seismic faults in the earthquake-prone state.

Supreme Court rules evidence stands after illegal search | 20 June 2016 | The Supreme Court on Monday empowered police to stop people on the streets and question them, even when it is not clear they have done anything wrong.

FBI redacts ISIS from transcript of Orlando shooter's 911 call | 20 June 2016 | The FBI redacted the name of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) [I-CIA-SIS] and other extremists from a partial transcript of conversations with the gunman in the June 12 deadly massacre in Orlando, in a move that quickly drew a rebuke from critics of the Obama administration. The [alleged] gunman, Omar Mateen, proclaimed allegiance with ISIS during 911 calls in the midst of the shooting and also expressed solidarity with the Boston Marathon bombers and an American suicide bomber in Syria. But those remarks were redacted from a partial transcript released on Monday morning. Instead, the transcript notes that Mateen identified himself "as an Islamic solider" and repeatedly spoke in Arabic and gave reference to God.

Please Vote Leave on Thursday, because we'll never get this chance again

June 20, 2016 by legitgov

Please Vote Leave on Thursday, because we'll never get this chance again | 19 June 2016 | What is the Remain camp offering? Nothing. No change, no improvement, no reform; nothing but the steady and miserable erosion of parliamentary democracy in this country...If we vote Remain, we do nothing to rebuke the elites in Brussels who have imposed the euro on the continent, and thrown a generation of young people on the scrap-heap, and who are utterly indifferent to the misery they are causing for the sake of their bankrupt ideology. We will remain prisoners of a trade regime that will not allow this country - the fifth biggest economy on earth - to negotiate with America, or China or India or any of the other growth economies of the world; because that privilege is reserved exclusively for the hierarchs of the European Commission, of whose vast staff only 3.6 per cent come from this country.

Jo Cox False Flag Theories Swirl on Twitter as Brexit Vote Looms | 16 June 2016 | The timing of the cold-blooded murder of liberal British lawmaker Jo Cox, as she was going to a meeting with constituents Thursday, has led to a flurry of social-media chatter claiming Cox's killing was plotted by forces seeking to sway next week's referendum in favor of Britain remaining in the European Union. Cox was stabbed and shot, allegedly by a right-wing loner. But some supporters of a British exit from the EU are spreading a conspiracy theory that the suspect, identified as Thomas Mair, is a patsy of pro-EU forces, and that Cox's murder is a "false flag" aimed at portraying the British right as unhinged and dangerous.

Skeptics accuse Orlando shooting victim of being a crisis actor paid to pretend she was injured - and claim the attack never happened --'Conspiracy' theorists accuse Patience Carter of being a crisis actor pretending to have been inside at the time of the shooting | 19 June 2016 | A 20-year-old woman who survived the Orlando shooting with a gunshot wound to the leg hit out at skeptics who accused her of making up her survival story in 'bizarre conspiracy' theories. Patience Carter, a Fox 29 intern from Philadelphia, was visiting Orlando for the first time when she got caught in the Pulse nightclub attack...But as Carter told how she survived the attack, some accused her online of being an actor paid to pretend she had been a victim of the ordeal. A now-defunct [aka pulled due to censorship] YouTube video claimed she was a 'crisis actor', which conspiracy theorists claim is a person hired by the media or by government bodies to pretend they survived crimes such as mass shootings. 'This is faked. This is staged. They are using actors. There is no doubt about it. This is 100 percent bull***t,' a narrator said in the video, which included a montage of news clips about Carter according to the New York Daily News. [For more on crisis actors, see: National Hoax Awards - Best Crisis Actor from 2015 - a classic, but the video needs to be updated, post-Orlando.]

Homeland Security seeks $100million to replace terms 'Muslim Americans' and 'the Muslim world' with 'American Muslims' and 'Muslim communities' --DHS also pushes to ban the words 'Sharia law' and 'jihad' [Right. The US doesn't want to ban Sharia law and jihad - just the words!] | 17 June 2016 | The Department of Homeland Security thinks censorship will help stop American millennials from becoming drawn to groups like ISIS. DHS's Advisory Council has released a report, suggesting that we stop making the fight against radical Islam an 'us versus them' fight...That means doing away with Islamic terms like 'jihad' - which means holy war- and 'Sharia law,' which are rules that govern ways of life in Muslim governments. The department also says we should stop using the term 'Muslim Americans' and 'the Muslim world', and replace them with 'American Muslims' and 'Muslim communities'. The department is asking that $100million be used to fund the effort, which will go towards paying experts and creating social media programs and technology to steer millennials away from terrorist recruiters. [This nugget is a contender for the most outrageous summary I've ever posted...]

The campaign kicked off Thursday night, with a conference call between 30 delegates from 15 states.
