300 more U.S. troops headed to Iraq; total personnel deployed at 800

July 1, 2014 by legitgov

300 more U.S. troops headed to Iraq; total personnel deployed at 800 30 Jun 2014 The U.S. is sending another 300 troops to Iraq to beef up security at the U.S. Embassy and elsewhere in the Baghdad area to protect U.S. citizens and property [yes, especially the oil refineries], officials said Monday. The new injection of manpower brings the total number of U.S. personnel sent to Iraq to deal with the recent crisis to approximately 800. The White House announced that President Barack Obama, who has previously ruled out sending combat troops back into Iraq, had directed that 200 troops be sent to reinforce security at the embassy, its support facilities and Baghdad International Airport.

Supreme Court Deals Public Unions a Blow

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

Supreme Court Deals Public Unions a Blow --The decision, written by Justice [sic] Samuel Alito, marks a loss for public sector unions. 30 Jun 2014 The Supreme Court decided Monday that public sector unions cannot collect "fair share" fees from non-union-members, in a 5-4 decision that dealt unions a sharp blow. The decision also marks a victory for the anti-union group, National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, which is backed by many hardline conservatives, including the Koch family. Representing the plaintiff, the Legal Defense Foundation argued that requiring non-union-members to pay some "fair share" union fees was the same as requiring them to pay to support "political or ideological ends." Their argument hinged on the idea that, in this day and age, any involvement with a union is inherently "political or ideological."

Hobby Lobby ruling: firms can refuse to provide contraception coverage

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

Hobby Lobby ruling: firms can refuse to provide contraception coverage --'Justices' side with Hobby Lobby and rule companies can claim religious exemption from Obamacare birth control mandate 30 Jun 2014 Conservatives celebrated a victory over Obamacare on Monday after the supreme court ruled that some companies should be allowed a religious exemption from rules requiring them to include all forms of contraception in employee health policies. In a judgment with significant implications for the legal rights of corporations, a narrow majority of five justices argued that "closely held" businesses such as the family-run Hobby Lobby chain of stores, which brought the test case, enjoyed the same religious protections under law as individuals. Hobby Lobby's Christian owners and others like them will now be free to remove four controversial contraception methods from insurance plans provided to their 13,000 staff, claiming they amount to a form of abortion because they take effect after the point of fertilisation.

Health Law Violates Corporate Religious Liberty, Supreme Court Says

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

Health Law Violates Corporate Religious Liberty, Supreme Court Says 30 Jun 2014 The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that requiring family-owned corporations to pay for insurance coverage for contraception under the Affordable Care Act violated a federal law protecting religious freedom. The 5-to-4 decision, which applied to two companies owned by Christian families, opened the door to challenges from other corporations to many laws that may be said to violate their religious liberty. Justice [sic] Samuel A. Alito Jr., writing for the court's five more conservative justices, said a federal religious-freedom law applied to for-profit corporations controlled by religious families. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing for the court's four-member liberal wing, said the contraception coverage requirement was vital to women’s health and reproductive freedom.

Former NSA/CIA head: ISIS's ascent in Iraq poses 9/11-like danger to U.S. 29 Jun 2014 Former NSA and CIA head Michael Hayden said Sunday that the advance of ISIS extremists in Iraq is extremely dangerous to the United States and its allies, saying it's "in the same area code" as the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks [inside job]. "This is quite a dangerous thing that we're seeing unfold here," Hayden said on "Fox News Sunday. "It's probably not 9/11, but it's certainly in the same area code."

Before Nisour Square Massacre, an Inquiry Into Blackwater Was Dropped After Firm's Top Manager Issued Threat

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

Before Nisour Square Massacre, an Inquiry Into Blackwater Was Dropped After Firm's Top Manager Issued Threat 29 Jun 2014 Just weeks before Blackwater guards fatally shot 17 civilians at Baghdad's Nisour Square in 2007, the State Department began investigating the security contractor's operations in Iraq. But the inquiry was abandoned after Blackwater's top manager there issued a threat: "that he could kill" the government's chief investigator and "no one could or would do anything about it as we were in Iraq," according to department reports. American Embassy officials in Baghdad sided with Blackwater rather than the State Department investigators as a dispute over the probe escalated in August 2007, the previously undisclosed documents show. The officials told the investigators that they had disrupted the embassy's relationship with the security contractor mercenaries and ordered them to leave the country, according to the reports.

UW-Madison pandemic flu viruses 'could escape from lab,' biosafety panelist says

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

UW-Madison pandemic flu viruses 'could escape from lab,' biosafety panelist says 29 Jun 2014 UW-Madison scientist Yoshihiro Kawaoka says he's creating potentially deadly flu viruses to help prevent a pandemic, but a campus biosafety panel member says the research could cause more harm than good because the viruses could escape from the lab. "You're increasing the probability of having a pandemic rather than decreasing the probability," said Tom Jeffries, a member of the university's Institutional Biosafety Committee, which reviews sensitive research...After Kawaoka reported this month that he used genes from several bird flu viruses to construct a virus similar to the 1918 pandemic flu virus that killed up to 50 million people worldwide, British and French scientists called the research "absolutely crazy" and "madness, folly."

Thousands of fracking wells in Pennsylvania 'may be leaking methane'

Thousands of fracking wells in Pennsylvania 'may be leaking methane' --Study finds abandoned wells could be bigger climate change contributor than thought, reports Climate Central 20 Jun 2014 A study of abandoned oil and gas wells in Pennsylvania finds that the hundreds of thousands of such wells in the state may be leaking methane, suggesting that abandoned wells across the country could be a bigger source of climate changing global warming greenhouse gases than previously thought. The study by Mary Kang, a Princeton University scientist, looked at 19 wells and found that these oft-forgotten wells are leaking various amounts of methane. There are hundreds of thousands of such oil and gas wells, long abandoned and plugged, in Pennsylvania alone, and countless more in oil and gas fields across the country. These wells go mostly unmonitored, and rarely, if ever, checked for such leaks.

Obama sends CIA to UK to probe terrorist 'breeding ground' --President in pointed snub to MI5 over 'lone wolf' mission to interrogate British security experts 28 Jun 2014 President Obama has sent a special unit of CIA officers to the UK to investigate British Muslim extremists amid growing fears in Washington that we are becoming a 'breeding ground' for terrorism.

The mission has been revealed as our security services have been forced to admit they are struggling to keep track of the estimated 500 Britons who have travelled to the Middle East to fight alongside the Islamic Isis forces in Syria and Iraq.

False alert sent to people near Calif. nuclear plant: 'Prepare for action' 28 Jun 2014 People in San Luis Obispo County received a series of unsettling, erroneous emergency alerts Friday as repairs were being made to a nuclear power plant's siren system, including a vague cellphone message that told them to "prepare for action."

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud

June 29, 2014 by legitgov

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud --May spend 20 years in prison over faked AIDS vaccine 25 Jun 2014 Scientific fraud is so common in the vaccine industry, it's practically the default business model. The truth is that most vaccines don't work, so in order to make them appear to work, researchers routinely spike blood samples of vaccinated test subjects with antibodies, making it appear the vaccine caused the body to produce those antibodies. This is exactly what Merck does with MMR vaccines, according to the company's own former virologists who filed a False Claims Act with the federal government. It's also why up to 97% of children who contract measles or mumps were already vaccinated against measles and mumps.

Judge upholds order demanding release of CIA torture accounts --US government loses attempt to keep accounts of torture of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri secret 25 Jun 2014 A military judge has rejected the US government's attempts to keep accounts of the CIA's torture of a prisoner secret, setting up a fateful choice for the Obama administration in staunching the fallout from its predecessor's brutal interrogations. In a currently-sealed 24 June ruling at Guantánamo Bay - described to the Guardian - Judge James Pohl upheld his April order demanding the government produce details of the detentions and interrogations of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri during his years in CIA custody. Among those details are the locations of the "black site" secret prisons in which Nashiri was held until his September 2006 transfer to Guantánamo; the names and communications of CIA personnel there; training and other procedures for guards and interrogators; and discussions of the application of so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques".

White House requests $500 million to aid Syrian 'rebels'

White House requests $500 million to aid Syrian 'rebels' [Yeah, people in Detroit need to become 'rebels' to fight their corporate-owned dictator aka Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr--a recess appointment position, no less--who wants to *privatize* the city's water supply and everything else. I wonder if the government would give *those* rebels $500 million?] 26 Jun 2014 The White House on Thursday asked Congress for half-a-billion dollars in aid to go toward opposition fighters in Syria at war with the regime government of recently re-elected [in a landslide] President Bashar Al-Assad. In a report sent to lawmakers at the Capitol on Thursday, the White House requested $500 million in aid to "help defend the Syrian people, stabilize areas under opposition control and facilitate the provision of essential services, counter terrorist threats and promote conditions for a negotiated settlement." The Associated Press reported that the multimillion dollar request makes up just a fraction of a larger, $65.8 billion overseas operations request sent to Congress that, if approved, would fund a number of Pentagon and State Department programs, as well as $1 billion in assistance to nations adjacent to Syria. [$65.8 billion to enhance US corpora-terrorists' pockets--but we can't get a pothole fixed or a bridge repaired here in the US. Start reading.]
