FBI quietly changes its privacy rules for accessing NSA data on Americans | 08 March 2016 | The FBI has quietly revised its privacy rules for searching data involving Americans' international communications that was collected by the National Security Agency, US officials have confirmed to the Guardian. The classified revisions were accepted by the secret US court that governs surveillance, during its annual recertification of the agencies' broad surveillance powers. The new rules affect a set of powers colloquially known as Section 702, the portion of the law that authorizes the NSA's sweeping "Prism" program to collect internet data. Section 702 falls under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (Fisa), and is a provision set to expire later this year.

March 9, 2016 by legitgov

Trump hits a triple! Candidate calls for Republican party to unite behind him after scoring wins in Mississippi, Michigan and Hawaii while Cruz clinches Idaho, leaving Kasich and Rubio on the brink --Trump swept primary elections in Mississippi (47 per cent of the vote) and Michigan (36.5 per cent) --Cruz later notched a victory in Idaho (45pc), a state Trump largely ignored | 09 March 2016 | Donald Trump told Republican voters and party bosses on Tuesday night that the time has come to rally around him following muscular primary victories in Michigan, Mississippi and later Hawaii. As he was urging GOP elites to 'embrace' the growing voter base that he's drawn to the polls, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was busy racking up a win of his own in Idaho. By night's end, though, Trump returned to the winner's circle by triumphing in Hawaii's Republican caucuses. He led 45-21 over Cruz with 51 per cent of the vote counted.

March 9, 2016 by legitgov

Bernie Sanders beats Hillary Clinton in stunning Michigan primary upset | 08 March 2016 | Bernie Sanders pulled off his biggest win of the Democratic presidential race on Tuesday, defeating Hillary Clinton in the Michigan primary on a night which also confirmed strong anti-establishment support for Donald Trump in the battle for the Republican nomination. In an industrial state hit hard by the decline of manufacturing, the Vermont senator's consistent opposition to 'free' trade deals appears to have been a decisive factor, but he also showed signs of weakening Clinton's dominance among African American voters. The shock victory – by a margin of around 3 percentage points when his win was first projected by Associated Press – comes despite Sanders trailing the former secretary of state by an average of 21 points in recent opinion polling.

Trump wins Michigan in repudiation of Republican establishment | 09 March 2016 | Republican front-runner Donald Trump rolled to primary wins in the big prize of Michigan and in Mississippi on Tuesday, brushing off a week of blistering attacks from the party's establishment and expanding his lead in the White House nominating race. Trump's convincing win in Michigan restored his outsider campaign's momentum and increased the pressure on the party's anti-Trump forces to find a way to stop his march to the nomination ahead of several key contests next week. Trump built his victories in Michigan, in the heart of the industrial Midwest, and Mississippi in the Deep South with broad appeal across many demographics. He won evangelical Christians, Republicans, independents, those who wanted an outsider and those who said they were angry about how the federal government is working, according to exit polls.

Clinton and her family campaigned in aggressively in the motor-based state this week, and the former U.S. senator accused Sanders of voting against an auto bailout that helped the state and she voted in favor of. It wasn't enough to keep the Vermont senator at bay, however. He hit her again, and again, and again for backing [insane] trade deals he said contributed to Michigan's shattered economy.

Freddie Gray case: Maryland high court says Officer Porter must testify against all 5 co-defendants | 08 March 2016 | Maryland's highest court ruled Tuesday that Officer William Porter must testify against all five fellow officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray, and sent the cases back to the lower court for trial. The Court of Appeals turned back Porter's request that he not be compelled to testify against Officer Caesar Goodson and Sgt. Alicia White. They also reversed Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams's order denying prosecutors' request to call Porter to testify against three other officers, Edward Nero, Garrett Miller and Lt. Brian Rice. It was a huge victory for the state, which argued that Porter's Fifth Amendment rights would not be violated by granting him immunity.

Michael Bloomberg Will Not Enter Presidential Race | 07 March 2016 | Michael R. Bloomberg, who for months quietly laid the groundwork to run for president as an independent, will not enter the 2016 campaign, he said Monday, citing his fear that a three-way race could lead to the election of...Donald J. Trump. The decision by Mr. Bloomberg, the former New York mayor who served three terms, ends months of intensive preparation for a candidacy.
