Australia to permit indefinite detention after completion of terrorism-related sentences

October 9, 2016 by legitgov

Australia to permit indefinite detention after completion of terrorism-related sentences --There would be no new trial, although prisoners would have the right to argue in court that they aren't a threat --The change will upend a centuries-old legal principle that prisoners are automatically released when their sentences end. | 08 Oct 2016 | Australia is about to allow people who might commit terrorism to be held in prison--indefinitely. Under changes introduced into federal parliament last month by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's centre-right government, federal judges could stop prisoners being released after completing terrorism-related sentences. They wouldn't need to set a release date, although the prisoners' detention would be reviewed every year. The change will upend a centuries-old legal principle that prisoners are automatically released when their sentences end.

"If everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least," she said. "So, you need both a public and a private position."

October 7, 2016 by legitgov

Hurricane Matthew death toll nears 900 in Haiti, cholera takes lives | 08 Oct 2016 | Hurricane Matthew's trail of destruction in Haiti stunned those emerging from the aftermath on Friday, with the number of dead soaring to 877, tens of thousands left homeless and outbreaks of cholera already claiming more lives. Information trickled in from remote areas that were cut off by the storm and it became clear that at least 175 people died in villages clustered among the hills and on the coast of Haiti's fertile western tip. Rural clinics overflowed with patients whose wounds including broken bones had not been treated since the storm hit on Tuesday. Food was scarce and at least seven people died of cholera, likely because of flood water mixing with sewage. [See: UN says it was involved in introducing cholera to Haiti 19 Aug 2016.]

US govt officially accuses Russia of 'political hacks' | 07 Oct 2016 | The US intelligence [sic] community is "confident" that Russia is behind the recent hacks of US officials' and organizations' emails, the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of National Intelligence said. According to the joint statement [more like a statement issued by people who've been smoking joints]  issued Friday, "disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts." ['Consistent with methods' does *not* constitute proof, pea-brains!] DHS has established an Election Infrastructure Cybersecurity Working Group "with experts across all levels of government" to raise awareness of cybersecurity risks, and urges state and local election officials to seek cybersecurity assistance from the federal authorities electronically rig swing states so Clinton/Kaine and the TPP/war-with-Russia ticket can 'win.'

October 7, 2016 by legitgov

German jets used in anti-ISIS mission grounded over 'loose screws' | 07 Oct 2016 | The German army has reportedly banned its most advanced Tornado jets from flying due to yet another technical mishap. The reconnaissance planes have been carrying out missions 'against' Islamic State in Syria since the beginning of the year. The Tornado ASST A3 aircraft has been grounded from October 6 "in order to avoid any risk to personnel or machinery," the Bundeswehr (German army) said in a statement on its website on Thursday. The problem is attributed to loose screws on the monitor in the cockpit of the Tornado jets, German DPA news agency reported, citing a Bundeswehr spokesman, who did not say whether the ban would be lifted or if the planes would be allowed to fly again anytime soon. [LOL! The actual 'loose screws' are the Western governments who are secretly arming and funding I-CIA-SIS, to destroy the democratically-elected government in Syria.]
