Pentagon documents: Obama to request big defense budget hike

January 29, 2015 by legitgov

Pentagon documents: Obama to request big defense budget hike | 27 Jan 2015 | President Barack Obama will ask Congress for a hefty, almost 8 percent boost for the Pentagon, including $5.3 billion to equip and train Iraqi soldiers and moderate Syrian 'rebels' to fight create more Islamic State militants in the Middle East. Obama will ask for $534 billion for the core budget of the Defense Department -- a $38 billion increase -- according to "pre-decisional" Pentagon documents obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday. That means there could be some slight changes when the budget actually comes out Monday...Another $51 billion would go for overseas military missions, including $43 billion for ongoing operations in Afghanistan [to protect the CIA's opium production] and $3.8 billion to 'train' Afghan security forces. [Oh-but-another reason to like on Facebook: I Really Hated Bush but Obama is Actually Worse.]

Documents Show N.S.A.'s Wiretap Moves Before Congress's Approval

Documents Show N.S.A.'s Wiretap Moves Before Congress's Approval | 27 Jan 2015 | A federal judge ruled in 2007 that the U.S.A. Patriot Act empowered the National Security Agency to collect foreigners' emails and phone calls from domestic networks without prior judicial approval, newly declassified documents show. The documents -- two rulings of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court -- fill in a chapter in the history of the N.S.A.'s warrantless surveillance program. They show the agency's secret moves in the months before Congress authorized the spying by enacting the Protect America Act in August 2007. The disclosure also brought into public view a previously unknown example of how the surveillance court, which hears arguments only from the government before issuing secret rulings, sometimes accepts novel interpretations of the law to bless government requests for spying powers.

Putin: Ukraine army is NATO legion aimed at restraining Russia | 26 Jan 2015 | The Ukrainian army is essentially a 'NATO legion' which doesn't pursue the national interests of Ukraine, but persists to restrict Russia, President Vladimir Putin says.

CDC lies: Measles outbreaks confirmed among children already vaccinated

January 27, 2015 by legitgov

CDC lies: Measles outbreaks confirmed among children already vaccinated | 13 Jan 2015 | Official reports are claiming that unvaccinated children are to blame [for the Disneyland measles outbreak] because some of those who contracted the measles hadn't been vaccinated. Some of them had been vaccinated, of course, and the original source of the disease has yet to be determined. But like always, it is automatically those individuals who choose not to inject their bodies with a vaccine linked to brain damage and autism -- and that's been shown to spread the measles -- that must have triggered the outbreak. The interesting thing about this latest measles outbreak is that the media is parading it around as evidence that not getting vaccinated triggers disease outbreaks, even though the original source of the disease is unknown. It is entirely possible that a vaccinated person spread the disease to both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, which in and of itself shows the lack of effectiveness of vaccines.
