Ted Cruz Backers Seek to Control Convention Platform

May 10, 2016 by legitgov

Ted Cruz Backers Seek to Control Convention Platform | 09 May 2016 | Senator Ted Cruz's supporters are mounting an effort to seize control of the Republican platform and the rules governing the party's July convention, the first indication that Mr. Cruz will not simply hand his delegates over to Donald J. Trump. In an email sent Sunday to pro-Cruz convention delegates, a top aide to the Texas senator wrote that it was "still possible to advance a conservative agenda at the convention." ...With the assumption that the party's nomination would not be decided on the first convention ballot, Mr. Cruz spent considerable time this spring electing delegates favorable to him to the July convention in Cleveland. So while he is out of the race, [tragically] many of his [psychotic] supporters will still be delegates.

May 10, 2016 by legitgov

State regulators reopen case on San Onofre nuclear plant | 09 May 2016 | State regulators announced Monday that they have reopened the case involving the premature shutdown of the San Onofre nuclear plant, which closed after a replacement steam generator leaked. The California Public Utilities Commission said it is reevaluating the settlement agreement that left ratepayers on the hook for $3.3 billion of the cost of closing the plant. The commission is giving parties involved in the case the opportunity to comment on whether the agreement was reasonable given that representatives of the plant's primary owner, Southern California Edison, engaged in secret talks with regulators over the closed nuclear plant.

May 10, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. government and N. Carolina escalate legal fight over transgender law | 09 May 2016 | A fight between the Obama administration and North Carolina over a state law limiting public bathroom access for transgender people escalated on Monday as both sides sued each other, trading accusations of civil rights violations and government overreach. The U.S. Justice Department's complaint asked a federal district court in North Carolina to declare that the state is violating the 1964 Civil Rights Act and order it to stop enforcing the ban. Hours earlier, North Carolina's Republican governor, Pat McCrory, and the state's secretary of public safety sued the agency in a different federal court in North Carolina, accusing it of "baseless and blatant overreach."

May 10, 2016 by legitgov

FaCIAbook busted: Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative [and Libertarian] News | 09 May 2016 | Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential "trending" news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site's users. Several former Facebook "news curators," as they were known internally, also told Gizmodo that they were instructed to artificially "inject" selected stories garbage into the trending news module, even if they weren't popular enough to warrant inclusion--or in some cases weren’t trending at all.

Video depicts U.S. military MREs, uniforms, and weapons found in area held by ISIS --U.S. has spent $7BILLION on 5,000 air strikes against ISIS targets...but still struggles to convince Iraqis it doesn't support terror group | 08 May 2016 | Government-allied Shiite militiamen on the front-lines post videos of U.S. supplies purportedly seized from ISIS militants or found in areas liberated from the extremist group...While supervising the channel's war reporting last year, al-Ahad TV spokesman Atheer al-Tariq claimed to have witnessed incidents when U.S. forces helped ISIS. As Iraqi security forces prepared to enter the city of Tikrit in April, he said two U.S. helicopters evacuated senior militants. A few months later, during an operation to retake the Beiji oil refinery, crates of weapons, ammunition and food were dropped over militant-held territory, he said. 'Is it logical to believe that America, the source of technology and science, could fire a rocket or drop aid materials in a mistaken way?' he asked. Videos uploaded to social media by front-line militiamen purport to tell a similar story. One shows U.S. military MREs, 'meals, ready-to-eat,' as well as uniforms and weapons said to have been found in an area held by IS. Another shows the interrogation of a captured IS militant. 'Check out his boots, they are from the U.S. army,' a fighter says. Another fighter points to a pile of rocket-propelled grenades he says were made in the U.S. and shipped to ISIS.

Former Penn State coach Paterno told of child sex abuse decades ago: court document | 05 May 2016 | Penn State's revered former head coach Joe Paterno was told of child sexual abuse by convicted molester Jerry Sandusky as far back as 1976, decades before previously thought, but did not report it to higher authorities, a court document showed. Paterno, the coach with the most wins in major college football history, died in 2012 [and, since silence equals complicity, roasting in hell] after being fired over revelations that Sandusky, his coaching assistant, sexually abused a young boy in the Penn State football showers in 2002. Paterno told university officials, but not police.

Maine Democrats to vote on eliminating superdelegates | 03 May 2016 | Officials from the Maine Democratic Party will vote on a rule change to eliminate superdelegates, the controversial institution that has a disproportionate role in choosing the party's presidential nominee without necessarily representing voters.

The proposed change will be brought to a vote at this weekend's state Democratic Party convention in Portland.

White House suggests Trump's intelligence briefings may be limited [!?!] | 05 May 2016 | Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may not get the same level of briefing on intelligence that President Barack Obama receives, a White House spokesman said Thursday.

The candidates are due to start receiving intelligence briefings after they are formally nominated.

House Speaker Paul Ryan: 'Not Ready' to Support Trump as GOP Nominee | 05 May 2016 | House Speaker [TPP-pusher/Social Security slasher/corporatist dirt-bag] Paul Ryan said Thursday that he couldn't yet lend his support to Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee, saying the billionaire businessman had "work to do" to unify the party and to demonstrate his commitment to conservative principles subjugating the US to full corporate control through the Obama/Ryan TPP. Asked if he would support Mr. Trump, Mr. Ryan told CNN: "I'm just not ready to do that at this point. I'm not there right now. And I hope to though, and I want to. But I think what is required is that we unify this party. And I think the bulk of the burden on unifying this party will have to come from the presumptive nominee." [#DumpRyan.]

U.S. regulators ban e-cigarette, cigar sales to minors | 05 May 2016 | U.S. regulators on Thursday took their first steps to crack down on e-cigarettes and cigars, increasingly popular among American youth, and banned sales to anyone under age 18 in hopes of preventing a new generation from becoming hooked on nicotine.

The new rules take effect in 90 days...Wall Street analysts expect the regulation to herald a new wave of consolidation led by big tobacco companies.

Teenage terrorism suspects could be detained for two weeks under proposed NSW laws | 04 May 2016 | (AU) Children as young as 14 suspected of terrorism offences in New South Wales could be detained and questioned for up to a fortnight under new laws introduced by the Baird government. The legislation extends the amount of time a terrorism suspect can be held for questioning from 24 hours - in practice, up to eight days including "dead time" - to two weeks. A suspect will not need to be brought before a judge until the fourth day of questioning under the legislation, which the state premier, Mike Baird, said on Wednesday was about doing "everything possible to protect our community from terrorist threats". Similar powers already existed in the form of preventative detention orders, which allowed state police [in the police state] to detain a suspect for up to 14 days, but they could not be questioned.

The lone state that voted Tuesday was a test of the continued potency of Sanders's fight as the Vermonter sought to maintain his political revolution as a force with which Clinton will need to wrestle. The win in Indiana will help with that effort.
