Mediterranean migrant boat tragedy: Death toll could rise to 950 | 19 April 2015 | A Portuguese cargo ship, on its way to Libya, had been dispatched to rescue a boat full of migrants, floundering 100 miles south of Lampedusa. In the dark, it changed course to assist the hundreds on board. But the well-intentioned rescue did not go as planned. On seeing the light, just before midnight on Saturday, the migrants surged to one side of the 66ft fishing vessel. Unbalanced, it capsized. And, in what is thought to be the worst migrant tragedy in the Mediterranean, 700 lives were lost...Italy's Ansa news agency quoted one survivor as saying there were 950 on board the boat when it sank.

Mother bear, four cubs spared after request from Alaska governor | 18 April 2015 | A black bear and four cubs known for rummaging through trash in the Anchorage neighborhood of Government Hill were saved from euthanization on Saturday by a phone call from Gov. Bill Walker (I) to the commissioner of Fish and Game. Walker asked whether the bears, whose pending deaths inspired passionate public outcry both in Alaska and Outside, could be relocated rather than shot. Garbage cans in the densely populated neighborhood are not sufficiently bear-proofed and those opposed to killing the bears argued the animals should not be punished for taking advantage of an easy food source.

Florida Ex-Senator Pursues Claims of Saudi Ties to Sept. 11 Attacks

April 18, 2015 by legitgov

Florida Ex-Senator Pursues Claims of Saudi Ties to Sept. 11 Attacks | 13 April 2015 | Bob Graham's focus on a possible Saudi connection has received renewed attention because of claims made by victims' families in a federal court in New York that Saudi Arabia was responsible for aiding the Sept. 11 hijackers and because of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed against the F.B.I. in Florida. In sworn statements in the two cases, the former Florida senator has said there was evidence of support from the Saudi government for the terrorists. He also says the F.B.I. withheld from his inquiry, as well as a subsequent one, the fact that the bureau had investigated a Saudi family in Sarasota, Fla., and had found multiple contacts between it and the hijackers training nearby until the family fled just before the attacks. Despite the F.B.I.'s insistence to the contrary, Mr. Graham (D) said there was no evidence that the bureau had ever disclosed that line of investigation to his panel or the national commission that reviewed the attacks and delivered a report in 2004.

However, he confessed that some scientists and artists, whose thoughts and actions threatened the interests of the United States, were also on the hit list.

TPP Trade Deal Would Curb Freedom of Speech Online, Internet Activists Warn

April 17, 2015 by legitgov

TPP Trade Deal Would Curb Freedom of Speech Online, Internet Activists Warn | 17 April 2015 | Internet freedom advocates are concerned that a vast new trade partnership supported by the Obama administration and placed on the path to fast-track approval by Congress Thursday will permit multinational corporations to crack down on freedom of speech and the right to privacy online. The complaints are aimed at a crucial part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a pact that could help shape President Obama's legacy on economic issues. While the terms of the proposed deal have been made public only through a series of leaks, the U.S. has been pushing for an agreement with 11 other countries that make up 40 percent of U.S. imports and exports. Leaked versions of the pact make it clear the U.S. is trying to sway other countries to implement American intellectual property law already used by copyright holders to remove legally questionable content from the Internet in the U.S.

MP Anton Gerashenko wrote on his Facebook page that unknown people shot at Buzina from a car with Latvian or Belarusian license plates, adding, "The killing of anti-Maidan eyewitnesses seems to be going on."

Deal Reached on Fast-Track Authority for Obama's Secretive TPP; Bill Subjects U.S. to Transnational Corporate Rule

April 17, 2015 by legitgov

Deal Reached on Fast-Track Authority for Obama's Secretive TPP; Bill Subjects U.S. to Transnational Corporate Rule | 16 April 2015 | Key congressional leaders agreed on Thursday on legislation to give President Obama special authority to finish negotiating one of the world's largest trade accords, opening a rare battle [?] that aligns the president with Republicans against a broad coalition of Democrats. Even with the concessions, many Democrats sound determined to oppose the president. Representative Sander Levin of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, condemned the bill as "a major step backward." The A.F.L.-C.I.O. and virtually every major union -- convinced that trade promotion authority will ease passage of trade deals that will cost jobs and depress already stagnant wages -- have vowed a fierce fight. [NO, New York Times. It's not a 'rare battle.' Contrary to what the corporate-owned media asserts 24/7, Wall Street fraud Obama has aligned himself with Republicans since day one on most issues, except for those grounded in identity politics.

NBC News admits blaming pro-Assad group for capturing its journalists when US-backed Free Syrian Army did kidnapping | 16 April 2015 | An NBC News [sic] journalist [sic] who was kidnapped in Syria has uncovered new details that he was misled about the affiliations of the group who took him. NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel and three other crew members were detained in December 2012 while trying to move into Syria from Turkey. Five days after being caught, Engel said the crew managed to escape while being moved from one location to another. They claimed that the kidnappers were group supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, but now the network admitted it rushed to conclusions due to "an elaborate ruse." ...The New York Times concluded that Engel's team “was almost certainly taken by a Sunni criminal element affiliated with the Free Syrian Army, the loose alliance of rebels opposed to Mr. Assad.”

NSA and FBI fight to retain spy powers as surveillance law nears expiration

NSA and FBI fight to retain spy powers as surveillance law nears expiration | 15 April 2015 | With about 45 days remaining before a major post-9/11 surveillance authorization expires, representatives of the National Security Agency and the FBI are taking to Capitol Hill to convince legislators to preserve their sweeping spy powers. That effort effectively re-inaugurates a surveillance debate in Congress that has spent much of 2015 behind closed doors. Within days, congressional sources tell the Guardian, the premiere NSA reform bill of the last Congress, known as the USA Freedom Act, is set for reintroduction -- and this time, some former supporters fear the latest version of the bill will squander an opportunity for even broader surveillance reform.

Copter pilot says he emailed to White House before flying | 15 April 2105 | Doug Hughes, who flew his small helicopter over restricted airspace, over the US Capitol in Washington on Wednesday, was apparently expected to do so according to police in the area but they thought that he "would land on the east side of the capital," opposite to where he landed prior to being arrested. Right before flying his gyrocopter over Congress, Hughes announced on a website, "My flight is not a secret. Before I took off, I sent an Email to info@barackobama.com. The letter is intended to persuade the guardians of the Capitol that I am not a threat and that shooting me down will be a bigger headache than letting me deliver these letters to Congress."

Well, knock me over with a medium-sized feather! Denver TSA agents targeted 'attractive' passengers for pat-downs -authorities | 14 April 2015 | The Transportation Security Administration has fired two screeners at Denver's international airport who schemed to conduct pat-down searches on attractive male passengers, officials said on Tuesday. The sackings follow a number of controversies over the screening of passengers at U.S. airports since 2010, when the agency adopted heightened security measures including full body imaging and pat downs. In November, a TSA employee tipped off the agency that a male screener at the airport told her he groped male passengers he found attractive, according to a Denver police report.

Helicopter lands on West Front lawn of US Capitol, building goes into lockdown | 15 April 2015 | A major security breach occurred on Wednesday afternoon when a small helicopter landed on the US Capitol West Front lawn. The Capitol building went into lockdown as the single-seat craft came to a halt and disbelieving members of the public watched as police rushed to arrest the occupant. Bomb disposal teams moved in quickly afterwards and used remote controlled robots to check the small craft embossed with the US Postal Service logo for any potential explosives. The air space over the US Capitol and the White House is a no-fly zone and questions have already been raised as to how a small piloted aircraft could get so close to the president and the seat of the US Government.

Obama Endorses Removing Cuba From Terrorism List

April 15, 2015 by legitgov

Obama Endorses Removing Cuba From Terrorism List | 14 April 2015 | The White House announced on Tuesday that President Obama intends to remove Cuba from the American government's list of nations that sponsor terrorism, eliminating a major obstacle to the restoration of diplomatic relations after decades of hostilities. The decision to remove Cuba from the list is a crucial step in Mr. Obama's effort to turn the page on a Cold War-era dispute...For more than 30 years, Cuba has been on the State Department's list of state sponsors of terrorism, a designation shared only by Iran, Sudan and Syria [when it should instead be shared by the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia].

U.S. Congress approves means-testing of Medicare beneficiaries

U.S. Congress approves means-testing of Medicare beneficiaries | 14 April 2015 | Congress on Tuesday approved a bill to repair the formula for reimbursing Medicare physicians, marking a rare bipartisan achievement [sic] just in time to head off a 21 percent cut in the doctors' pay. Final action came as the Senate voted 92-8 to approve the so-called "doc fix". The bill now goes to President Barack Obama, and he is expected to sign it into law. The measure was drafted last month by Republican House Speaker John Boehner and Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. The bill would also require means-testing of Medicare beneficiaries so higher income people pay higher premiums.

Marco Rubio, calling on new conservative generation, launches presidential run

Marco Rubio, calling on new conservative generation, launches presidential run | 13 April 2015 | Marco Rubio stood Monday in the grand hall of Miami's Freedom Tower, the place where Cuban exiles were first welcomed into the United States, and declared himself the heir to their legacy as the newest candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Rubio, who rose from the obscure West Miami City Commission to the U.S. Senate in a mere dozen years, cast himself as a break from the past -- a message pointed directly at his onetime mentor and likely Republican rival Jeb Bush and Democrat Hillary Clinton, who unveiled her own presidential bid Sunday. He delivered a speech thin on policy details but aspirational in its message, repeating the personal narrative he has effectively deployed since becoming the first Cuban-American speaker of the Florida House of Representatives.

Chris Christie's big presidential idea: torch Social Security | 14 April 2015 | Chris Christie, trying desperately to keep his presidential hopes alive, wants to look bold, and he's not above throwing millions of elderly Americans under his campaign bus to do so. That's the only conceivable explanation for the New Jersey Republican governor's misinformed and dangerous proposals to "fix" Social Security. In his big campaign speech delivered Tuesday in New Hampshire, Christie showed that he doesn't understand what Social Security is for, why it exists, how it's funded, or who gets benefits and why.
