May 25, 2015 by legitgov

US jets scrambled to escort Air France plane to JFK after threat against flight | 26 May 2015 | An Air France passenger jet [Airbus AF022] flying from Paris to New York has been escorted by two US fighter planes for the last leg of its trip after a bomb threat. The threat was made by phone from the United States [likely from Langley, Virginia -- so the Patriot Act is renewed and the NSA's bulk data collecting can continue, unmolested], the official said. It was a bomb threat phoned in to a Maryland state police barracks shortly after 6.30am local time, said police spokesman Greg Shipley. The FBI was notified immediately. Two F-15 planes were scrambled by NORAD, a joint US-Canadian monitoring force, as a precautionary measure, NORAD said.

Fukushima leak 'could cause hydrogen explosion' at nuclear plant --'If the concentration level is high, a spark caused by static electricity could cause a container to explode' -Nuclear Regulation Authority official | 25 May 2015 | Leaking containers at Japan's embattled Fukushima nuclear power plant are at risk of possible hydrogen explosions, experts have claimed. Almost 10 percent of recently inspected containers holding contaminated water at the nuclear plant in northeast Japan were found to be leaking radioactive water. The leakages, discovered during inspections by Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco), the operators of the plant, were thought to be caused by a build-up of hydrogen and other gases due to radiation contamination.

Worm Now Thrives in GMO Corn Designed to Kill It, Study Says

May 25, 2015 by legitgov

Worm Now Thrives in GMO Corn Designed to Kill It, Study Says [Hahaha! Go, little worm, go - and devour Obama's eco-terrorists, Monsanto!] | 03 Mar 2014 | One of industrial agriculture's biggest GMO crops may have just backfired. Scientists have confirmed that corn-destroying rootworms have evolved to be resistant to the Bt corn engineered to kill them. Bt -- Bacillus thuringiensis -- is the genetically modified corn's "donor" organism. [Deadly] Bt corn accounted for three-quarters of all corn planting in 2013. That may have to change.

Bomb squad destroyed pressure cooker in suspicious DC vehicle - police | 25 May 2015 | A bomb squad safely destroyed a pressure cooker found in an unattended vehicle parked on the National Mall near the U.S. Capitol and the vehicle's owner was found and arrested, a U.S. Capitol Police spokeswoman said. Police Lt. Kimberly A. Schneider told The Associated Press that Capitol Police officers on routine patrol spotted the parked, unoccupied vehicle on a street on the mall west of the Capitol around 5 p.m. Sunday. "Further investigation revealed a pressure cooker, and an odor of gasoline was detected," Schneider said, adding a Capitol Police bomb squad was called in because the vehicle was deemed "suspicious in nature."

Britain sends biggest warship for NATO drills on Russian border | 24 May 2015 | Britain is ramping up its military rhetoric, sending its biggest warship for NATO drills in the Baltic, right off the Russian coast, in this latest show of force. The drills ['Baltops 15'] kick off on June 5 and will last for two weeks. The helicopter carrier HMS Ocean is expected to reach Russia's city of Kaliningrad sometime this week, carrying aboard about 80 Royal Marines who are to join other NATO troops in Poland, the Sunday Times reports. The international fleet of vessels to take part in the games will include close to 50 warships and submarines, some of which will assemble as close as 50 miles to the Russian border, in the Gulf of Gdansk. Some other weapons featured in the games will be American B-52 nuclear bombers, which have stood for decades more as a symbol of Cold War readiness than anything else.

NSA Begins Dismantling Phone Data Collection Program [For Now]

May 25, 2015 by legitgov

NSA Begins Dismantling Phone Data Collection Program [For Now] | 23 May 2015 | The National Security Agency has begun "winding down" the once top-secret bulk collection of Americans' phone records after Congress failed to renew or change the program before a holiday recess, a senior administration official told ABC News. "We've said for the past several days that the wind-down process would need to begin yesterday if there was no legislative agreement. That process has begun," the official said. The government has relied on Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which expires at midnight on May 31, to authorize collection of telephone metadata for all U.S. calls.

Secret Pentagon report reveals West saw ISIS as strategic asset

May 24, 2015 by legitgov

Secret Pentagon report reveals West saw ISIS as strategic asset | 23 May 2015 | A declassified secret US government document [US Defense Intelligence Agency document then classified as "secret," dated 12 August 2012] obtained by the conservative public interest law firm, Judicial Watch, shows that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian President Bashir al-Assad. The document reveals that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, despite anticipating that doing so could lead to the emergence of an 'Islamic State' in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) [(I-CIA-SIS)]. According to the newly declassified US document, the Pentagon foresaw the likely rise of the 'Islamic State' as a direct consequence of the strategy, but described this outcome as a strategic opportunity to "isolate the Syrian regime."

May 24, 2015 by legitgov

Australia to introduce 'jihadi watch' program in schools, to check for radicalised behaviour | 24 May 2015 | Australia is set to introduce new counter-terrorism laws, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Sunday (May 24), with the package expected to include stripping dual nationals who are linked to terrorism of their citizenship. There has also been speculation that the plan to amend citizenship laws, which was disclosed in February, could affect second-generation Australians who carry only one passport. At the same time, the government is considering introducing a "jihadi watch" programme in schools, which would keep tabs on pupils whose behaviour suggests they might have been radicalised, it was announced on Sunday.

Obama Signs Congress Review of Iran Nuclear Deal Bill Into Law

May 23, 2015 by legitgov

Obama Signs Congress Review of Iran Nuclear Deal Bill Into Law | 22 May 2015 | President Barack Obama signed into law on Friday legislation giving lawmakers a chance to review any nuclear deal the White House seeks to hammer out with Iran. The U.S. and five other world powers have crafted a delicate framework with Iran to keep it from developing nuclear weapons. The law gives Congress at least a month to review the details of an agreement. During the review, the president would be prevented from lifting congressionally imposed sanctions on Iran.

Ireland legalizes gay marriage in historic vote

May 23, 2015 by legitgov

Ireland legalizes gay marriage in historic vote | 23 May 2015 | Ireland became the first country Saturday to legalize same-sex marriage by national referendum, a vote that has highlighted the dramatic pace at which this traditionally conservative Catholic nation has changed in recent times. Just 22 years after decriminalizing homosexuality, more than 60% of voters approved the measure, with just three of the 43 constituencies left to declare results Saturday afternoon, state broadcaster RTE said. Electoral officers reported an unusually high number of people showed up for Friday's vote.

First Syria rebels armed and trained by CIA 'on way to battlefield'

May 23, 2015 by legitgov

I-CIA-SIS flashback: First Syria rebels armed and trained by CIA 'on way to battlefield' --The first cell of Syrian 'rebels' trained and armed by the CIA is making its way to the battlefield, President Barack Obama has reportedly told senators. | 03 Sept 2013 | During a meeting at the White House, the president assured Senator John McCain that after months of delay the US was meeting its commitment to back moderate elements of the opposition. Mr Obama said that a 50-man cell [I-CIA-SIS], believed to have been trained by US special forces in Jordan, was making its way across the border into Syria, according to the New York Times. The deployment of the rebel unit seems to be the first tangible measure of support since Mr Obama announced in June that the US would begin providing the opposition with small arms.

Murray Abbott, Missing Morgan Stanley Trader, Found Dead in Toronto | 11 May 2015 | Murray Abbott, an institutional sales trader at Morgan Stanley in Toronto who had been missing since April 25, was found Monday by the shore of Lake Ontario near the city's Beaches neighborhood where he lived. He was 36. His death wasn't suspicious [?], Mark Pugash, a Toronto Police Service spokesman, said Tuesday in a telephone interview. Abbott was a vice president and one of 16 people on the institutional equities desk at Morgan Stanley's Canadian wealth-management division. [This is the (approximately) 72nd -- mostly young -- banker to be found dead of 'suicide' or 'mysterious circumstances' in the past couple of years? Banking: What a dangerous profession!]

Cleveland officer not guilty over deaths of two people shot at 137 times by police

Cleveland officer not guilty over deaths of two people shot at 137 times by police | 23 May 2015 | A Cleveland police officer who stood on the hood of a car and fired his gun 49 times through the windshield at two unarmed passengers has been found not guilty on two counts of voluntary manslaughter. Michael Brelo was also found not guilty of felonious assault, and discharged. On Saturday morning, Cuyahoga County judge John P O'Donnell said prosecutors failed to prove without a reasonable doubt that bullets fired by officer Brelo were the cause of death of Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell, or that Brelo had no fear for his own life during the volley of gunfire that ended a high-speed car chase on 29 November 2012.

Obama Takes Unexpected Setback On Trade Agenda As Fast Track Passes Senate

May 23, 2015 by walden9

Obama Takes Unexpected Setback on Trade Agenda as Fast Track Passes Senate | 23 May 2015 | President Barack Obama's trade agenda suffered a setback Friday evening during a series of last-minute maneuvers in the Senate. While the upper chamber eventually passed a bill that would help Obama streamline a trade pact with 11 Pacific nations, the final product threw a wrench into the president's plans ... But a key crackdown on human trafficking survived the legislative jujitsu. The White House considers the provision a deal-breaker, as it would force one of the nations involved in the TPP talks -- Malaysia -- out of the agreement. An immigration-related amendment authored by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) never got a vote, making it far more difficult for Obama to win over skeptical tea party Republicans in the House. [Obama's agenda is disrupted because a nation that deals in slaves cannot be included given the last-minute insertion of a clause barring human trafficking. Let that irony sink in. Here it is again: Obama is disappointed because a slave-trading nation will be excluded from the TPP. Just call Obama the anti-Lincoln of U.S. Presidents.--MDR]

Kansas has found the ultimate way to punish the poor

May 23, 2015 by legitgov

Kansas has found the ultimate way to punish the poor | 21 May 2015 | Legislators in Kansas, not trusting the poor to use their money wisely, have voted to limit how much cash that welfare beneficiaries can receive, effectively reducing their overall benefits, as well. The legislature placed a daily cap of $25 on cash withdrawals beginning July 1, which will force beneficiaries to make more frequent trips to the ATM to withdraw money from the debit cards used to pay public assistance benefits. Since there's a fee for every withdrawal, the limit means that some families will get substantially less money. It's hard to overstate the significance of this action.

Senate approves Obama's secret fast-track "trade" bill, includes "Sharia law" nation of Brunei | 22 May 2015 | President Obama's trade corporate welfare agenda received a critical boost from the U.S. Senate late Friday with a bipartisan vote in favor of a "fast track" trade bill. "It's important to President Obama, and it's important to a lot of us here in the chamber," said Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a lead sponsor of the bill. The Senate voted, 62-37, to approve a six-year renewal of trade promotion authority (TPA), which provides an expedited process to submit trade pacts to Congress. The bill now heads to the U.S. House, which is expected to begin work on the bill in June. [Start reading.]

GOP-Led Senate Blocks Bill That Would Have 'Ended' NSA's Bulk Collection of Domestic Phone Records | 23 May 2015 | The Republican-led Senate blocked a House bill that would have ended the National Security Agency's bulk collection of domestic phone records. The Senate, struggling to prevent an interruption in critical government surveillance programs early Saturday, also rejected a short-term extension of the USA Patriot Act. The back-to-back votes left lawmakers without a clear fallback, although current law doesn't expire until midnight May 31.

The women say when they tried to report the assaults, they were told nothing could be done. Part of the suit reads the officer threatened to allow other inmates to beat the women if they reported assault.

Attorney for ISIL suspect: Feds waving 'bloody flag of terrorism'

May 23, 2015 by legitgov

Attorney for ISIL suspect: Feds waving 'bloody flag of terrorism' | 22 May 2015 | The attorney for one of seven men charged with supporting terrorism accused the government Friday of "waving the bloody flag of terrorism" during a hearing in federal court to determine whether his client could be released before trial. In the most contentious and politicized hearing since a group of Twin Cities men were charged with plotting to leave the country to fight alongside terrorists in Syria, both sides hashed out in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis whether Abdirahman Yasin Daud, 21, should be released before he stands trial on charges of supporting terrorists. "The government came out here waving the bloody flag of terrorism," Daud's attorney, Bruce Nestor, said, mentioning atrocities and beheadings by U.S. allies. "What about the 5,000 Americans who died in Iraq under false pretenses?"

ISIS close to buying nuclear weapon from Pakistan and smuggling it into US [Oh dear. Better renew the Patriot Act and ensure the NSA's bulk data collection continues.] | 22 May 2015 | Islamic State has claimed it is 'infinitely' closer to buying a nuclear bomb from Pakistan and smuggling it into the US. An article, apparently penned by British hostage John Cantlie for the terror group's magazine, Dabiq, says the scenario is 'more possible today than it was just one year ago'. In an article entitled 'The Perfect Storm', it is claimed ISIS has billions of dollars in the bank and describes a 'hypothetical operation' which involves it buying a nuclear bomb 'through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials' in Pakistan. It describes how the device could be smuggled into North America overland and by boat.

Judge Won't Give Public Access to Senate Report on CIA Torture | 21 May 2015| Civil libertarians cannot force a full disclosure of the nearly 7,000-page Senate report on the CIA's use of torture in interrogations, a federal judge ruled Thursday. The 6,963-page "Final Full Report" by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) has been in a quasi-limbo since Republicans took control of Congress at the beginning of this year...With only a 480-page executive summary and 20 conclusions on the report released publicly, the American Civil Liberties Union went to federal court to get the report fully released, along with an internal CIA study commissioned by former Director Leon Panetta, under the Freedom of Information Act.

Pentagon sending 2,000 anti-tank weapons to Iraq | 21 May 2015 | The Pentagon announced on Thursday it is sending 2,000 anti-tank weapons to Iraq, following the rout of U.S.-backed forces in Ramadi by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

He said the U.S. is also expediting the delivery of other equipment, including ammunition and other equipment to counter ISIS's increasing reliance on vehicle-borne bombs. Within the last 30 days, the U.S. also helped to deliver coalition [US taxpayer-funded] donations of 22 million rounds of small arms ammunition and 12,000 mortar rounds to the Iraqi army, Warren said.

Rand Paul ends marathon filibuster but fails to block Patriot Act

Rand Paul ends marathon filibuster but fails to block Patriot Act | 21 May 2015 | Two years after rising to national prominence with a 13-hour talking filibuster against drones, Rand Paul has made another marathon speech on the floor of the US Senate -- only this time in a bid to halt the federal government's mass surveillance of Americans' phone records and to derail an extension of the Patriot Act. Paul spent a total of 10 hours and 30 minutes on Wednesday calling for an end to the National Security Agency's dragnet surveillance tactics, eating up one of just three legislative days remaining before lawmakers go on recess till 1 June -- the same day that key provisions of the Patriot Act are due to expire.

US vows to continue patrols after China warns spy plane | 21 May 2015 | The United States vowed on Thursday to keep up air and sea patrols in international waters after the Chinese navy repeatedly warned a U.S. surveillance plane to leave the airspace over artificial islands China is creating in the disputed South China Sea. The Chinese navy issued eight warnings to the crew of a U.S. P8-A Poseidon, the U.S. military's most advanced surveillance aircraft, when it conducted the overflights on Wednesday, according to CNN, which was aboard the U.S. aircraft. When the American pilots responded by saying the plane was flying through international airspace, a Chinese radio operator said with exasperation: "This is the Chinese navy...You go!"

Pentagon says US anti-armor weapons due in Iraq next week | 21 May 2015 | An expedited shipment of 2,000 lightweight shoulder-fired weapons intended to help the Iraqi army stop the Islamic State group's increasingly effective use of car bombs [as their handlers in Langley taught them] should arrive in Iraq as soon as next week, the Pentagon said Thursday. The shipment is among a variety of weaponry and equipment the U.S. agreed to send to Iraq on an expedited basis after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi visited Washington in April to plead for more help in fighting the extremists. In an update to the overall cost of U.S. military involvement in Iraq and Syria, Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said that as of April 9 the U.S. had spent $2.1 billion since it began bombing in Iraq in August.

Gov. Christie loses his marbles on national TV (Star-Ledger Editorial Board) | 19 May 2015 | For months, we have wondered how Gov. Chris Christie thinks he can win the presidency when New Jersey is in such rotten shape after his six years in office.Now we may have our answer: The man has lost touch with reality. In a national TV interview Monday, Christie was asked to explain why 65 percent of New Jersey voters think he'd make a bad president. His answer: We love him so much that we want him to remain our governor. "They want me to stay," he told Megyn Kelly of Fox News."
