British jihadists to be forced to attend deradicalisation programmes, says Cameron

September 1, 2014 by legitgov

British jihadists to be forced to attend deradicalisation programmes, says Cameron --In a Commons statement, Mr Cameron said: 'Adhering to British values is not an option or a choice.' 1 Sep 2014 British jihadists returning from Iraq and Syria will be forced to attend "deradicalisation" programmes to reverse their warped brainwashing, David Cameron announced. Dangerous fanatics made subject to court controls will be ordered to engage in anti-extremism schemes as part of a raft of new measures to combat the risk of British Islamists returning to the UK. Under the proposals, any terror suspect placed under a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (Tpims) will now be forced to engage in the Government's Prevent programme, which tackles radicalisation. Tpims are court orders that allow restrictions to be placed on the movements and activities of suspects where there is insufficient evidence to bring charges.

Airlines ordered to hand over passenger lists to intelligence agencies; police to seize terror suspects' passports --Police also to be given new 'temporary' power to seize passports of suspects 1 Sep 2014 Police will be given the power to seize the passports of terror suspects trying to join jihadists fighting in Iraq and Syria, David Cameron announced today as he unveiled a fresh crack down against extremists. The Prime Minister also unveiled new powers to force jihadis living in the UK to relocate, airlines will be compelled to hand over passenger lists and new laws will be drawn up to prevent terrorists returning to 'wreak havoc' on the streets of Britain. Mr Cameron also admitted the Government would 'continue to consider' what further action Britain could take against the ISIS fighters in the Middle East - including what 'military measures we might take'. Former party leader Sir Ming Campbell said the proposal to exclude UK nationals from Britain' might not be legal', not least because of obligations under international law.

Guantanamo Defense Lawyer Resigns, Says U.S. Is Crafting a 'show trial' 31 Aug 2014 Last week, Maj. Jason Wright -- one of the lawyers defending [accused 9/11 mastermind, facing a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay] Khalid Sheikh Mohammed -- resigned from the Army. He has accused the U.S. government of "abhorrent leadership" on human rights and due process guarantees and says it is crafting a "show trial." For nearly three years, he served on Mohammed's defense team. Wright says Mohammed in particular has faced a level of torture "beyond comprehension." He says his client was waterboarded by the CIA 183 times and subjected to over a week of sleep deprivation; there were threats that his family would be killed. "And those are just the declassified facts that I'm able to actually speak about," Wright says.

Insane in the membrane: Nuclear waste removal: Government seeking train cars for radioactive waste 31 Aug 2014 The U.S. government is looking for trains for hauling the radioactive waste from nuclear power plants to 'disposal' sites.

Officials of the U.S. Energy Department didn't respond to messages that sought detailed comments.

The Covert Origins of ISIS

September 1, 2014 by legitgov

The Covert Origins of ISIS --Evidence exposing who put ISIS in power, and how it was done. 28 Aug 2014 ...In June of 2014 Al-Nusra merged with ISIS at the border between Iraq and Syria. So to review, the FSA [Free Syrian Army, the 'rebels'] is working with Al-Nusra, Al-Nusra is working with ISIS, and the U.S. has been sending money and weapons to the FSA even though they've known since 2012 that most of these weapons were ending up in the hands of extremists. You do the math. In that context, the sarin gas attacks of 2013 which turned out to have been committed by the Syrian rebels, makes a lot more sense doesn't it? If it wasn't enough that U.N. investigators, Russian investigators, and Pulitzer prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh all pinned that crime on Washington's proxies, the rebels themselves threatened the West that they would expose what really happened if they were not given more advanced weaponry within one month. By the way, this also explains why Washington then decided to target Russia next. This threat was made on June 10th, 2013. In what can only be described as an amazing coincidence, just nine days later, the rebels received their first official shipment of heavy weapons in Aleppo.

Israel claims West Bank land for possible settlement use, draws U.S. rebuke

September 1, 2014 by legitgov

Israel claims West Bank land for possible settlement use, draws U.S. rebuke 31 Aug 2014 Israel announced on Sunday a land appropriation in the occupied West Bank that an anti-settlement group termed the biggest in 30 years, drawing Palestinian condemnation and a U.S. rebuke. Some 400 hectares (988 acres) in the Etzion Jewish settlement bloc near Bethlehem were declared "state land, on the instructions of the political echelon" by the military-run Civil Administration. "We urge the government of Israel to reverse this decision," a State Department official said in Washington, calling the move "counterproductive" to efforts to achieve a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians.

ISIL completely fabricated enemy by US: Former CIA contractor

September 1, 2014 by legitgov

ISIL completely fabricated enemy by US: Former CIA contractor 28 Aug 2014 Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley says that the ISIL terrorist group is a completely fabricated enemy created and funded by the United States. "This is a completely fabricated enemy," he said in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California on Thursday. "The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we create it, we control and only now it has become inconvenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy," Kelley added.

Shocking Picture of 'Elderly Migrant Workers' Who Can't Afford to Retire 25 Aug 2014 Journalist Jessica Bruder adds a new phrase to America's vocabulary: "Elderly migrant worker." She documents a growing trend of older Americans for whom the reality of unaffordable housing and scarcity of work has driven them from their homes and onto the road in search of seasonal and temporary employment across the country. Packed into RVs, detached from their communities, these "Okies" of the Great Recession put in time at Amazon warehouses, farms and amusement parks, popping free over-the-counter pain reliever to mask the agony of strained muscles and sore backs. And when they can't hold up any longer? The RV sometimes becomes a coffin.

August 30, 2014 by legitgov

Moscow warns of reprisal over Poland's 'outrageous' airspace closure for Russian Defense Minister's jet 29 Aug 2014 Polish closure of its airspace for the plane of the Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu will not go without an "appropriate response" as it caused a "real threat to flight safety," Russia's Foreign Ministry has stated. The diplomatic standoff on Friday took hours to resolve after Poland refused to grant free passage to Shoygu's plane as he was returning from celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the Slovakian national uprising that took place in the town of Banská Bystrica. An hour after the TU-154 left Slovakia, the flyover in Polish airspace was suddenly refused due to the plane's changed status. On the way to the celebrations, Poland designated the minister's flight as civilian, while on the way back, it was changed from civil to military - for "unknown reasons", according to Poland's state air navigation services agency.

Texas Army National Guard Brigadier General Patrick Hamilton told the San Antonio Express-News requesting services from local charities is an "anomaly" and outside the Guard's protocol, and that no troops visited the food bank to his knowledge.

U.S. judge halts major part of Texas law restricting abortions 29 Aug 2014 A U.S. judge struck down parts of a law restricting abortions in Texas, saying in a decision on Friday that a provision requiring clinics to have certain hospital-like settings for surgeries was unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel said the so-called "ambulatory surgical center requirement" was unjust because it placed an undue burden on women by reducing the number of clinics where they could seek abortions and the regulations had no compelling public health interests. The requirement was to have gone into effect on Sept. 1.
