November 12, 2014 by legitgov

President Obama pushes for secretive trans-Pacific trade deal in China 11 Nov 2014 President [Wall Street troll] Barack Obama is again pushing international leaders to finalize the trans-Pacific trade deal between 12 countries that would eradicate tariffs and regulations, but critics say the secretive negotiations have been a boon only to corporations. Leaders of the countries negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal at this week's Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings have not set a timetable for settling the pact, but the Obama administration is optimistic that by end of his eight-day visit to Asia a deal can be reached. [Not if we can help it. #StopTPP]

November 12, 2014 by legitgov

'Malicious' Election Day robocalls by GOP operatives disrupted Illinois voting, triggered investigation --City officials characterized calls as 'intimidation' - AP 11 Nov 2014 Mysterious and "malicious" robocalls sent to Chicago election judges disrupted voting Nov. 4 and triggered an investigation by the Cook County State's Attorney. Now, the calls are being linked to a pair of Republican activists sociopaths in Illinois, and party officials are distancing themselves from the messages. Ahead of Election Day, an unknown number of Chicago election judges received robocalls containing false or misleading information, including directives to vote for Republican candidates...Election officials say the calls are the reason why as many as 2,000 election judges quit or failed to show on Election Day, leading to long lines and mishaps at the polls.

November 11, 2014 by legitgov

Lara Logan shoots story on Ebola in Liberia, forgets to interview Africans, gets 'self-quarantined' in luxury hotel [LOL!] 11 Nov 2014 CBS News reporter [sic] Lara Logan made waves after going to Liberia to film a story on the Ebola epidemic -- but not interviewing a single Liberian, who were ignored for American experts. Despite not contacting any Ebola patients, Logan and her crew "self-quarantined" themselves in a luxury hotel in South Africa... The report [sic] fielded criticism for lacking interviews with any Liberians or Africans, as it focused only on American doctors and virus experts who, Logan said during the piece, "could bring to light the suffering of Liberians."

Officials and police around St Louis have been making extensive preparations for renewed protests.

John Hopkins scientist criticizes contents and use of flu vaccines, issues 'blistering report' --Scientist cites case involving 2009 distribution of H1N1 vaccines, which allegedly caused convulsions in one among 110 children in Australia 11 Nov 2014 Concerned parents are rapidly sharing an article published by natural news website, Real Farmacy, reporting on a review conducted by John Hopkins scientist Peter Doshi, criticizing the contents and use of flu vaccines. Doshi's "blistering report" on flu vaccines has allegedly been featured on a recent issue of the peer-reviewed British Medical Journal [now called The BMJ]. Doshi...says the Center for Disease Control is overstating the effectiveness of flu vaccines. The scientist has also charged CDC of basing vaccine policies on low-quality studies that allegedly do not fully substantiate official claims, saying that "[T]he vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and the threat of influenza seems to be overestimated."

Governments agree on new protections for polar bears

November 11, 2014 by legitgov

Governments agree on new protections for polar bears 10 Nov 2014 Polar bears are among 31 species approved for greater protections by more than 100 countries, in a move hailed by conservationists as an important step to saving the endangered mammal. The Convention on Migratory Species conference in Ecuador closed on Sunday, with new listings for a whale capable of the world’s deepest ocean dives, and 21 shark, ray and sawfish. The Norwegian proposal to protect the estimated 20,000-25,000 remaining polar bears, which are threatened by melting ice [global warming], Arctic oil exploration and hunting, saw the species gain an Appendix II listing. That means countries must work together to put in place conservation plans, as opposed to the stronger Appendix I listing which requires strict protections such as bans on killing an animal.

US Navy to kill, injure 'thousands' of whales, dolphins during drills - activists

US Navy to kill, injure 'thousands' of whales, dolphins during drills - activists 11 Nov 2014 As the US Navy conducts war games off the coasts of California and Hawaii over the next four years, environmentalists are fighting back with legal action over concerns that hundreds, if not thousands, of marine animals will be injured or killed. The Conservation Council for Hawaii has recently asked a judge to put an end to the naval exercises in the region on the grounds that they violate the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), the Washington Post reports...At the center of the controversy are the lives and health of potentially millions of marine mammals, which can suffer hearing loss or damaged lungs from powerful sonar and death from underwater explosions.

Fukushima radiation off California coast

November 11, 2014 by legitgov

Fukushima radiation off California coast 10 Nov 2014 Researchers announced on Monday they have detected "trace" amounts of radioactivity stemming from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident off the coast of California. In a press release, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute said they detected cesium-134, a radioactive contaminant traceable only to Fukushima, in water samples taken from the Pacific Ocean 100 miles west of Eureka, California. Canadian scientists detected similar amounts of cesium-134 off the coast of Canada in February 2014. Scientists predict radioactivity from Fukushima will move down the US coast from Canada and eventually west toward Hawaii.

Great News for the Web: Obama Urges FCC to Uphold Net Neutrality

November 11, 2014 by legitgov

Great News for the Web: Obama Urges FCC to Uphold Net Neutrality 10 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama has called on the Federal Communications Commission to lay down "the strongest possible rules" to protect net neutrality, saying that internet service providers should not be allowed to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace. On Monday...the White House released a statement and video from President Obama that aims to reclassify internet service as a utility under Title II of the 1934 Telecommunications Act and push the FCC back toward rules that would prevent ISPs from restricting best access to what you can do and see online. If the FCC reclassifies internet service as a utility under Title II, internet service would become something akin to telephone service, electricity, or water.

David Cameron avoids humiliating defeat over European Arrest Warrant

November 11, 2014 by legitgov

David Cameron avoids humiliating defeat over European Arrest Warrant --Senior Conservatives accused Labour of "trying to pull a stunt over an issue of national security" by attempting to delay the vote. [LOL, USociopaths do that all the time!] 10 Nov 2014 David Cameron has narrowly avoided a humiliating defeat over the European Arrest Warrant in unprecedented Commons scenes which saw Tory ministers accused of "tricking" their own MPs. The debate on the arrest warrant descended into bitter acrimony as MPs from all parties reacted with fury when it emerged that they would not be given an individual vote on the justice measure. Mr Cameron was forced to return to the Commons dressed in white tie from a speech he was giving at the Lord Mayor's banquet as Government whips found themselves scrambling to shore up support and prevent Labour delaying the vote by a day.

President nominates Loretta Lynch as attorney general 8 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama on Saturday nominated Loretta Lynch as his next U.S. attorney general, describing the two-time U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York as a "tough, fair and independent" lawyer. "It's pretty hard to be more qualified for this job than Loretta Lynch," Obama said at the White House, where he was joined by Lynch and outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder. The president said the Senate overwhelmingly confirmed Lynch twice before as a federal prosecutor.

November 10, 2014 by legitgov

Protesters set fire to Mexican palace as anger over missing students grows 9 Nov 2014 A group of protesters set fire to the wooden door of Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto's ceremonial palace in Mexico City's historic city centre late on Saturday, denouncing the apparent massacre of 43 trainee teachers. The group, carrying torches, broke away from what had been a mostly peaceful protest demanding justice for the students, who were abducted six weeks ago and apparently murdered and incinerated by corrupt police in league with drug gang members. Police put out the flames and enforced fencing designed to keep the protesters away from the National Palace, which was built for Hernan Cortes after the Spanish conquest and now houses Mexico's finance ministry.

Israel to extend its laws into West Bank 9 Oct 2014 A bill that would extend all Israel's new laws onto the Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank has been approved by the Israeli ministerial committee...According to the new bill approved by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday, the Israeli laws would be applied through a military decree of Israel Defense Forces Central Command thus implying Israeli sovereignty on those territories in the West Bank. Within 45 days of any law's passage in parliament, the commander would issue an identically-phrased military order, effectively ensuring that the ratified legislation also applies to Jewish settlers.

Remembrance Sunday: ring of steel around Queen to foil Cenotaph 'terrorist plot' 9 Nov 2014 Security around the Queen and senior politicians attending today's Remembrance Sunday events will be at its tightest for more than a decade after police and the intelligence services claimed to have foiled a plot by 'Islamists' to mount a terrorist attack. Armed police, undercover officers and soldiers will form what security experts described as a "multilayered" cordon around the Royal family, the Prime Minister and leaders of the main political parties as they prepare to lay wreaths at the Cenotaph memorial in Whitehall, following the traditional two-minute silence at 11am. Security will also be stepped up at other war memorials around the country, where services are also taking place. Security will be at its highest level since 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks [false flag].

Perry nuclear power plant shuts down after voltage problem

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

Perry nuclear power plant shuts down after voltage problem 7 Nov 2014 (OH) The Perry nuclear power plant unexpectedly shut itself down this morning. The shutdown, or "scram" occurred at 8:47 a.m., said [plant owner FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co.] spokeswoman Jennifer Young, as the control rods automatically inserted into the nuclear core. An engineering team's preliminary investigation released early this afternoon determined that a voltage problem in one of the electrical panels supplying power to the the pumps that keep the reactor supplied with fresh, purified water and the fuel rods submerged led to the automatic shutdown. Another problem in that same power supply circuitry caused the reactor to shut itself down Oct. 20.

Some new U.S. troops in Iraq will be sent to Anbar, where Islamic State is in control

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

Some new U.S. troops in Iraq will be sent to Anbar, where Islamic State is in control 7 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama’s authorization of an additional 1,500 troops to Iraq to fight against the Islamic State more than doubles the U.S. troop presence there and will place some of those new forces in Iraq's most restive provinces. The decision to bolster and expand the U.S. effort to confront the Islamic State's hold on much of Iraq is likely to fuel concern that the United States was mission creeping back into a ground war just three years after U.S. troops withdrew all its forces from Iraq. When the U.S. re-engagement in Iraq began in July it consisted of a few hundred troops. Since then, the United States has not only added troops but begin a campaign of daily air strikes on Islamic State targets throughout Iraq.

US government sees off legal challenge over Guantanamo force-feeding

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

US government sees off legal challenge over Guantánamo force-feeding 8 Nov 2014 The Obama administration has prevailed in the first court challenge to its controversial force-feedings of detainees prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, even as the judge ruling in the government's favor criticized its lack of "common sense and compassion". Gladys Kessler, a federal judge in Washington DC, denied Abu Wa'el Dhiab's request to significantly change the manner in which the US military transfers, restrains and forcibly feeds detainees on hunger strike to protest their confinement. Kessler's ruling, siding with the government in nearly every particular, is the denouement of a courtroom drama that in May saw a civilian judge ordering the military to briefly halt Dhiab's forced feeding. In October, the injunction sought by the Syrian detainee prompted an extraordinary three days of courtroom disclosures about the feedings, which the government had sought to keep secret.

Longtime political strategist Mike DuHaime, a partner at the public strategy firm Mercury Public Affairs, and Cam Henderson, a former chief of staff to First Lady Mary Pat Christie, both received lucrative consulting contracts from the RGA.

He began experiencing 'flu-like symptoms' when he arrived back in the U.S but was considered low risk because he never left the plane.
