May 16, 2016 by legitgov

Oops! CIA inspector general's office admits it 'mistakenly' destroyed its only copy of Senate torture report: Senate report on CIA torture is one step closer to disappearing | 16 May 2016 | The CIA inspector general's office - the spy agency's internal watchdog - has acknowledged it "mistakenly" destroyed its only copy of a mammoth Senate torture report at the same time lawyers for the Justice Department were assuring a federal judge that copies of the document were being preserved, Yahoo News has learned. Although other copies of the report exist, the erasure of the controversial document by the CIA office charged with policing agency conduct has alarmed the U.S. senator who oversaw the torture investigation and reignited a behind-the-scenes battle over whether the full unabridged report should ever be released, according to multiple intelligence community sources familiar with the incident. The deletion of the document has been portrayed by agency officials to Senate investigators as an "inadvertent" foul-up [LOL!] by the inspector general.

May 16, 2016 by legitgov

Justices, Seeking Compromise, Return Contraception Case to Lower Courts | 16 May 2016 | The Supreme Court, in an unsigned unanimous opinion, announced on Monday that it would not rule in a major case on access to contraception, and instructed lower courts to explore whether a compromise was possible. The ruling was the latest indication that the eight-member Supreme Court is exploring every avenue to avoid 4-to-4 deadlocks, even if the resulting action does not decide the question the justices had agreed to address. The case, Zubik v. Burwell, No. 14-1418, was brought by religious groups that object to providing insurance coverage for contraception to their female employees. Less than a week after the case was argued in March, the court issued an unusual unsigned order asking the parties to submit supplemental briefs on a possible compromise.

Chaos at NV Democratic Convention; State Party Chair Flees Building as Sanders Supporters Demand Recount | 15 May 2016 | (Las Vegas) This situation escalated out of control when Roberta Lange, Chairwoman of the Nevada State Democratic Party and member of the national DNC Executive Committee subjectively called the results of a voice vote, adjourned the meeting using a gavel, and left.

DNC leaders refused to reconsider their decision not to allow this, adjourned, and fled the building amid a chorus of boos; leaving hotel security and local police officers to handle the angry Sanders supporters.

May 15, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. Directs Public Schools to Allow Transgender Access to Restrooms | 12 May 2016 | The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity. A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration's legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration - signed by Justice and Education department officials - will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against. It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration's interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid. [And yet: Obama has *no problem* w. top US ally -- the Sharia sociopaths of Saudi Arabia -- who execute gays.]

Democratic Convention Hosted by Republican Donors, Anti-Obamacare Lobbyists

May 15, 2016 by legitgov

Democratic Convention Hosted by Republican Donors, Anti-Obamacare Lobbyists | 11 May 2016 | The 2016 convention in Philadelphia will be officially hosted by lobbyists and corporate executives, a number of whom are actively working to undermine progressive policies achieved by President Barack Obama, including health care reform and net neutrality. Some of the members of the 2016 Democratic National Convention Host Committee, whose job is to organize the logistics and events for the convention, are hardly even Democratic Party stalwarts, given that many have donated and raised thousands of dollars for Republican presidential and congressional candidates this cycle. The composition of the 15-member Host Committee may appear out of sync with the rhetoric of Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, but the reality is that the party, in the form of the Democratic National Committee, has moved decisively to embrace the lobbying industry.

Republicans win Obamacare legal challenge, add to insurer concerns | 12 May 2016 | A U.S. judge on Thursday handed a victory to congressional Republicans who challenged President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, ruling that his administration overstepped its constitutional powers relating to government spending. U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer, based in Washington, ruled that the administration cannot spend billions of dollars in federal funds to provide subsidies under the law known as Obamacare to private insurers without the approval of Congress. At issue in the case, brought by the Republican-led House of Representatives, are reimbursements to insurance companies to compensate them for reductions that the law requires them to make to customers' out-of-pocket medical payments.
