NJ Motor Vehicle Commission passes 'anti-Tesla' rule

March 18, 2014 by legitgov

NJ Motor Vehicle Commission passes 'anti-Tesla' rule --Thug Christie only supports 'free markets' when his corpora-terrorist overlords, such as the Koch brothers, benefit from capitalism. 12 Mar 2014 If elcectric car Tesla is your choice, you might have a hard time finding one after the state Motor Vehicle Commission today unanimously passed new rules that will limit Tesla's direct sales business model. The new rules made more stringent the need for a franchised dealer, a model that the electric carmaker says is "anti-Tesla" as the carmaker operates through storefronts that allow for buyers to purchase directly from the manufacturer. "The Administration has decided to go outside the legislative process by expediting a rule proposal that would completely change the law in New Jersey," the company said in a statement posted on its corporate website. "This new rule, if adopted, would curtail Tesla's sales operations and jeopardize our existing retail licenses in the state."

China rules out hijack, attack by Chinese passengers on Malaysian jet

March 18, 2014 by legitgov

China rules out hijack, attack by Chinese passengers on Malaysian jet 17 Mar 2014 There is no evidence Chinese passengers were involved in a hijack or terror attack on a Malaysia Airlines flight that vanished 10 days ago, state media quoted China's ambassador to Malaysia as saying on Tuesday. Ambassador Huang Huikang told Chinese reporters that Beijing had carried out a detailed investigation of the Chinese passengers and could rule out their involvement, state television said on one of its official microblogs. Huang said a lot of the information involved criminal matters which was "not suitable to publicise" but gave no other details. "The probe into the incident's cause is not suitable to be conducted in a high-profile way," he said.

Missing Plane's Path Seen as Altered via Flight Computer

March 18, 2014 by legitgov

Missing Plane's Path Seen as Altered via Flight Computer 18 Mar 2014 The first turn to the west that diverted the missing Malaysia Airlines plane from its planned flight path from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing was carried out through a computer system that was most likely programmed by someone in the plane's cockpit who was knowledgeable about airplane systems, according to senior American officials. Instead of manually operating the plane's controls, whoever altered Flight 370's path typed seven or eight keystrokes into a computer on a knee-high pedestal between the captain and the first officer, according to officials. The Flight Management System, as the computer is known, directs the plane from point to point specified in the flight plan submitted before each flight. It is not clear whether the plane's path was reprogrammed before or after it took off. The fact that the turn away from Beijing was programmed into the computer has reinforced the belief of investigators that the plane was deliberately diverted and that foul play was involved.

Missing Plane: No Pilot Suicide Notes Found

March 18, 2014 by legitgov

Missing Plane: No Pilot Suicide Notes Found --The homes of the two pilots are searched as it is confirmed one of them spoke the final words heard from flight MH370. 18 Mar 2014 Police searching the homes of the pilots of flight MH370 have not found any suicide notes, officials have revealed. The men at the controls of the Boeing 777 - Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah and first officer Fariq Abdul Hamid - have been one of the focuses of the investigation into the missing plane. Mr Hamid is believed to have made the last communication from the flight, speaking to air traffic control before the plane vanished 10 days ago.  Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said at the news conference that initial investigations into a recording of the exchange suggested the first officer was the one who calmly said: "All right, good night" as the plane passed into Vietnamese air space. The plane's transponder - which relays the plane's location - was switched off just two minutes after the voice message.

Stand Against the White Deer Kill in Wisconsin

March 17, 2014 by legitgov

Quick action: Stand Against the White Deer Kill in Wisconsin 16 Mar 2014 Out of the 1.5 million deer in Wisconsin, there are only 60 to 75 white ones. Visually, they're stunning; some people even call them "ghosts of the forest." And they're not just incredibly rare -- they're also a potential tourist attraction, given that 14 million people have viewed a video of them posted by researchers online. So why is Gregory Kazmierski, a Scott Walker appointee to the Natural Resources Board [and, obviously, another sociopath like Walker], trying to get them killed off? ...This beautiful animal must not be lost to greed. Stand against allowing white deer slaughter in Wisconsin! (Petition)

ACARS switched off in MH370 before last radio message, transport official says 17 Mar 2014 The revelation that Malaysia Airlines flight MH370's Aircraft Communications and Reporting System was switched off before its last radio message was sent has brought the focus of investigations back to the pilots.

March 17, 2014 by legitgov

Missing Plane 'May Have Sent Signals on Ground' --US intelligence fears the plane may have landed somewhere to be used later as a 9/11-style 'cruise missile'. 16 Mar 2014 The missing Malaysia Airlines plane carrying 239 people could have been on the ground when it sent its last satellite signal, an official has said. US intelligence is focusing on the pilot and co-pilot's possible role in the plane's disappearance and are worried it may have landed somewhere to be used later as a weapon. The Boeing 777-200's final 'ping' was picked up nearly seven hours after the flight vanished from air traffic control screens. But now investigators say a 'ping' was detected from one of two air corridors going north and south from the sea off Malaysia.

US cites 'security' more often than ever to censor, deny records 16 Mar 2014 The Obama administration more often than ever censored government files -- or outright denied access to them -- last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to a new analysis of federal data by The Associated Press. The administration cited more legal exceptions it said justified withholding materials and refused a record number of times to turn over files quickly that might be especially newsworthy. Most agencies also took longer to answer records requests, the analysis found.

Right Sector leader: Kiev should be ready to sabotage Russian pipelines in Ukraine 16 Mar 2014 The leader of [US-backed] ultranationalist group Right Sector, Dmitry Yarosh, has threatened to destroy Russian pipelines on Ukrainian territory if a diplomatic solution is not reached with Moscow. In a fiery address loaded warmongering rhetoric, Yarosh told his followers they should be ready to resist the Russian "occupiers." The leader of the Right Sector made his address to the coup-appointed government in Kiev, as Crimeans made their way to ballots Sunday to vote to join with Russia or to remain within Ukraine. The Right Sector movement, an amalgamation of several far-right groups, was formed in November 2013. Members of the radical movement were very active in the violence which triggered the ouster of President Viktor Yanukovich.

He said he was laid off after several months in the job due to heavy radiation exposure.

Brzezinski Mapped Out the Battle for Ukraine in 1997

March 16, 2014 by legitgov

Brzezinski Mapped Out the Battle for Ukraine in 1997 15 Mar 2014 Why would the United States run the risk of siding with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazis in Ukraine? One of the keys may be found by looking back at Zbigniew Brzezinski's 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he wrote, "Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire. However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia." The former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and top foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be "unapologetic" in perpetuating "America's own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer still."

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Probe Sharpens Focus on Sabotage

March 15, 2014 by legitgov

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Probe Sharpens Focus on Sabotage 14 Mar 2014 The investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 sharpened its focus on sabotage, according to aviation and industry officials, amid strong indications that one or more people on the plane deliberately changed its course and tried to mask its location. Officials suspect two different systems were shut off after the plane took off last weekend, one shortly after the other, people familiar with the investigation said. About an hour into the flight, the plane's transponders stopped functioning, making it much more difficult for air-traffic control personnel to track or identify it via radar.
