February 15, 2015 by legitgov

Cities Take 'Anti-Extremism' Efforts to White House | 14 Feb 2015 | Prosecutors and civic leaders from several U.S. cities will convene at a White House summit this week to discuss ways of countering violent extremism, eager to share ideas on how to shut off terrorist recruiting pipelines that have sent Western fighters to conflicts in the Middle East and Africa. The U.S. attorney's offices from Minneapolis, Los Angeles and Boston will discuss the progress of pilot programs in those cities to stem the causes of radicalization, particularly in their immigrant populations, in hopes of breaking the recruiting cycle...The Los Angeles program has drawn criticism from civil rights groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Haroon Manjlai, a spokesman for CAIR's Los Angeles chapter, said the group is worried that the program will infringe on Muslims' freedom of speech and religion and might hurt their public image.

Airlines Consider Requiring Proof of Vaccination for Domestic Air Travel

February 15, 2015 by legitgov

OMG. Airlines Consider Requiring Proof of Vaccination for Domestic Air Travel | 14 Feb 2015 | Traveling by air may get even more complicated if a reported plan by major carrier airlines requiring passengers to be vaccinated comes to fruition. After the increasing problem of unvaccinated individuals contracting and spreading communicable diseases, airlines hope to be a stopgap solution to preventing larger outbreaks. An inside source with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) suggests that, "Multiple major carriers have begun discussing requiring vaccination records for all passengers before allowing them to board a flight." The source at the FAA wouldn't commit to a statement on whether other mass transit carriers, such as railroads or bus lines, would follow suit if this new tactic is implemented by the airlines.

Ukraine ultranationalist leader rejects Minsk peace deal, vows 'to continue war' | 13 Feb 2015 | Ukraine's Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh said his radical movement rejects the Minsk peace deal and that their paramilitary units in eastern Ukraine will continue "active fighting" according to their "own plans."

Yarosh claimed that any agreement with the eastern militia, whom he calls "terrorists," has no legal force.

February 14, 2015 by legitgov

California utility commissioner's private emails reveal conspiracy | 13 Feb 2015 | As part of a federal and state investigation into what appears to be systemic corruption involving former senior executives at PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission, 65,000 emails have been publicly released, revealing collusion and conspiracy. Former commission president Michael Peevey and former PG&E Vice President Brian Cherry are wishing investigators would have been kept in the dark. The pair privately discussed problems with so-called "smart" meters, violating their own rules of procedure while admitting to health harm and overbilling problems - which several thousand Californians had been warning about since 2010.

February 14, 2015 by legitgov

Gov. Chris Christie's approval ratings sink to all-time low | 13 Feb 2015 | New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's approval ratings have hit an all-time low, according to a new poll. In a Rutgers University-Eagleton poll released on Friday, 53 percent of New Jersey voters view Christie unfavorably and just 37 percent hold a favorable view of the governor -- down 7 percentage points in two months. The possible 2016 GOP candidate's job approval ratings are facing similar blows.

McDonald's now including free vaccines alongside Happy Meals

February 14, 2015 by legitgov

Mega barf alert! McDonald's including free vaccines alongside Happy Meals | 14 Feb 2015 | The only way to make a processed, chemical-laden Happy Meal even happier, it seems, is to accompany it with an injection of aluminum into the bodies of young children. A McDonald's restaurant in San Antonio, Texas, has announced it is offering free vaccine shots to children who swing by the restaurant, reports Amarillo.com...And the McDonald's vaccine giveaway stunt is being carried out under the ill-named "Caring for Children Foundation of Texas," which is named in the same way the U.S. Congress names new police state legislation with precisely the opposite words of what the laws will actually accomplish. "The PATRIOT Act," anyone?

Vaccine Strain of Measles Virus Found in Measles Outbreaks - Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D.

February 14, 2015 by legitgov

Vaccine Strain of Measles Virus Found in Measles Outbreaks - Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. | 14 Feb 2015 | Dr. Suzanne Humphries is a practicing nephrologist (kidney physician). In this lecture, she addresses a study done in Croatia where a child who was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine was tested positive for the measles vaccine strain Schwarz eight days after vaccination. This was a significant finding, because the child's symptoms were thought to be similar to rubella, and without testing, the sickness would have been possibly mis-diagnosed as rubella, or the wild-type strain of measles the vaccine is designed to protect against. This concept of "shedding," where the child comes down with the disease from the virus in the vaccine itself, surprised the researchers.

About 90 chickens, turkeys and ducks that have had access to ponds on the property frequented by migratory wild waterfowl were infected with the virus, officials said. The Oregon Department of Agriculture is in the process of setting up a quarantine zone around the property to restrict movement of domestic birds in and out of the area.

Massive fire at Islamic center in Houston; group calls for hate crime probe --FBI monitoring situation | 13 Feb 2015 | A fire broke out at an Islamic community and education center in southeast Houston early this morning and now a group is calling for an investigation into whether the fire was the result of a possible hate crime.

Rachel Corrie's family loses wrongful death appeal in Israel's supreme court

February 13, 2015 by legitgov

Rachel Corrie's family loses wrongful death appeal in Israel's supreme court | 13 Feb 2015 | Israel's supreme court has rejected the appeal by the family of Rachel Corrie -- the US activist who was crushed to death by a military bulldozer in Gaza 12 years ago -- which had sought to hold Israel liable for her death. The ruling, which followed a high-profile hearing before Israel’s top court last year, appears to bring to an end - in the Israeli courts at least - years of effort by Corrie's family to hold the country's military responsible for her death. Instead, the court upheld the decision of a lower court, which invoked the "combat activities exception" that the Israeli military cannot be held responsible for damages in a war zone.

Oregon attorney general orders Cylvia Hayes to disclose emails to The Oregonian-OregonLive | 12 Feb 2015 | Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum Thursday ordered Cylvia Hayes, fiancée of Gov. John Kitzhaber, to turn over to The Oregonian/OregonLive emails from her personal accounts relating to state business.

Hayes contended in fending off the requests for her emails that she held no formal government position and had no government authority. The order was signed by Rosenblum's deputy, Fred Boss. It gives Hayes seven days to comply with the Oregonian/OregonLive's request or sue to block their release.

U.S. appeals court to hear arguments on moving Boston bombing trial | 12 Feb 2015 | A U.S. appeals court on Thursday said it would hear arguments on whether to move the trial of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect out of the city that was the site of the largest mass-casualty attack [false flag] on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks [the other false flag]. The appeals court's decision to hear arguments on Feb. 19 comes after a district court judge three times rejected pleas by defendant patsy Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's attorneys to move the trial. Defense attorneys contend too many people in the Boston area had a direct connection to the event to empanel an impartial jury.
