Obama signs 'Monsanto Protection Act' written by Monsanto-sponsored senator

June 22, 2015 by legitgov

Obama signs 'Monsanto Protection Act' written by Monsanto-sponsored senator | 20 June 2015 | United States President Barack Obama has signed a bill into law that was written in part by the very billion-dollar corporation that will benefit directly from the legislation. On Tuesday, Pres. Obama inked his name to H.R. 933, a continuing resolution spending bill approved in Congress days earlier. Buried 78 pages within the bill exists a provision that grossly protects biotech corporations such as the Missouri-based Monsanto Company from litigation. With the president's signature, agriculture giants that deal with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds are given the go-ahead to continue to plant and sell man-made crops, even as questions remain largely unanswered about the health risks these types of products pose to consumers. In light of approval from the House and Senate, more than 250,000 people signed a petition asking the president to veto the spending bill over the biotech rider tacked on, an item that has since been widely referred to as the "Monsanto Protection Act." [Russian President Vladimir Putin outlawed GMOs, for the health of his nation. Now, which leader actually gives a damn about his citizens?]

'Huge' explosions and gunfire outside Afghan parliament

June 22, 2015 by legitgov

'Huge' explosions and gunfire outside Afghan parliament | 22 June 2015 | A Taliban suicide bomber and gunmen attacked the Afghan parliament on Monday, shattering windows, wounding at least 19 people and sending a plume of black smoke across Kabul, as a second district in two days fell to the Islamist group in the north. A series of Taliban gains, and Monday's attack on the symbolic centre of power, have raised questions about the Nato-trained [trained to protect and nurture the CIA's opium routes] Afghan security forces' ability to cope. "A suicide bomber blew himself up just outside the parliament building and several fighters took positions in a building close to parliament," said Ebadullah Karimi, spokesman for Kabul police.

Leader of group cited in 'Dylann Roof manifesto' donated to top Republicans --Ted Cruz campaign tells Guardian it will 'be making a full refund' [LOL!] | 21 June 2015 |The leader of a rightwing group that Dylann Roof allegedly credits with helping to radicalise him against black people before the Charleston church massacre has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Republicans such as presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Rick Santorum. Earl Holt has given $65,000 to Republican campaign funds in recent years while inflammatory remarks -- including that black people were "the laziest, stupidest and most criminally-inclined race in the history of the world" -- were posted online in his name. Holt, 62, is the president of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC), a Missouri-based activist organisation praised as enlightening by the author of a manifesto-style text that was posted on a website registered in Roof's name along with photographs of the gunman. The FBI said on Saturday it was investigating the website.

Pentagon chief planning for longer-term rift with Russia | 21 June 2015 | The United States and its NATO allies are preparing militarily for the prospect that their rift with Russia could outlast President Vladimir Putin, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Sunday. Russia's U.S. intervention in Ukraine has put NATO allies in eastern Europe on edge and triggered a series of military moves by the alliance, including an acceleration of exercises and the creation of a NATO rapid response force.

Govt emails reveal Fukushima radiation could cause thyroid cancer to skyrocket in Americans | 19 June 2015 | Censored and heavily redacted emails from U.S. government scientists and officials reveal that there were major concerns among American policymakers shortly after the devastating Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster in March 2011 that there would be widespread radiological contamination and spikes in thyroid cancer rates...Nuclear science experts were clearly concerned that radioactive fallout from the disaster would not merely spread to the U.S. West Coast but cause a spike in thyroid cancer rates there, as well -- though none of those concerns were publicized by reports or expressed publicly by the Obama Administration at the time.

Saudi Arabia regime warns citizens against sharing 'faked documents' [LOL!] | 21 June 2015 | [US anti-democracy ally] Saudi Arabia on Saturday urged its citizens not to distribute "documents that might be faked" in an apparent response to WikiLeaks' publication on Friday of more than 60,000 documents it says are secret Saudi diplomatic communications.

A website discovered Saturday appears to offer the first serious look at Mr. Roof's thinking, including how the case of Trayvon Martin, the black Florida teenager shot to death in 2012 by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, triggered his racist rage...It is not clear whether the manifesto was written by Mr. Roof or if he had control of it. The F.B.I. and Charleston police officials say they are examining the site.

Spy court clears path to renewing NSA powers

June 20, 2015 by legitgov

Spy court clears path to renewing NSA powers | 19 June 2015 | The secretive federal court that oversees the nation's spies is laying the groundwork for temporarily reauthorizing the National Security Agency's (NSA) sweeping collection of U.S. phone records. In an order released on Friday, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court said that a brief lapse in some Patriot Act provisions would not bar the court from renewing the NSA's powers. Although the court asserted its ability to renew the controversial NSA program, it has yet to issue an order giving a green light to the spy agency. The court also decided that it doesn't need the advice of a new expert panel, in its first-ever opportunity to use the friend-of-the-court analysis.

Surveillance court moving toward renewal of NSA spying program for 6 months | 19 June 2015 | The secretive court that oversees US government spying requests has indicated that it will temporarily renew the National Security Agency's bulk phone records collection authority despite a new reform law that ended the dragnet. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) -- often seen as a compliant "rubber stamp" for US government spying requests -- released an order on Friday positing that lapsed spying powers vested in the Patriot Act -- which expired without renewal on June 1 -- would not restrict the court from reauthorizing for six months the phone metadata collection program.

Fukushima operator 'knew of need to protect against tsunami but did not act'

Fukushima operator 'knew of need to protect against tsunami but did not act' | 18 June 2015 | The operator of Japan's ruined Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was aware of the need to improve the facility’s defences against tsunami more than two years before the March 2011 disaster but failed to take action, according to an internal company document. The revelation casts doubt on claims by Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) that it had done everything possible to protect the plant, which suffered a triple meltdown after being struck by a towering tsunami. The utility disclosed the document this week during a lawsuit brought by more than 40 Tepco shareholders who are demanding damages totalling 5.5 trillion yen from company executives.

The House voted 218-208 to give Mr Obama the fast-track authority to speed 'trade' deals, including the TPP, to conclusion with reduced interference from Congress.

Rep. DeFazio Calls 'Bullsh-t' on the TPP

June 18, 2015 by legitgov

DeFazio Calls 'Bullshit' on the TPP | 18 June 2015 | Congressman Peter DeFazio has vehemently opposed the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal from early on, telling Eugene Weekly in January 2014 that the deal was "informed and manipulated by corporate interests" and that if the public knew what was in the classified document, they wouldn't like it. While widespread public attention has only really been directed at the trade deal for the past couple months, the TPP has been years in the making. The Electronic Frontier Foundation calls it a "secretive, multinational trade agreement" -- the trade talks were all conducted in secret -- and the pact is between 12 Pacific Rim countries accounting for almost 40 percent of the global economy.

U.S. top court rules for death row inmate over intellectual disability claim | 18 June 2015 | The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that a federal judge was correct to hold a hearing on whether a convicted cop killer on Louisiana's death row is intellectually disabled and therefore potentially ineligible for the death penalty...The court, in a 5-4 decision, threw out an appeals court ruling that said Kevan Brumfield was not eligible for the special hearing in which the lower court judge found he was intellectually disabled. Brumfield will remain on death row for now, as the appeals court has yet to decide if the judge was correct to find that Brumfield was ineligible for the death penalty.
