December 26, 2015 by legitgov

NSA, FBI ask judge to dismiss Utah Olympic spying lawsuit | 24 Dec 2015 | The FBI and National Security Agency have asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a former Salt Lake City mayor who claims agencies conducted mass surveillance of emails, texts and phone calls during the city's 2002 Winter Olympics. The agencies filed court documents last week asking a federal judge in Utah to dismiss the case. A judge has not yet made a decision. Attorney Rocky Anderson, who was Salt Lake City's mayor at the time of the games, said that he learned about the program from a 2013 report in the Wall Street Journal and has since confirmed it with an unnamed source who worked for the NSA during the Olympics.

'Non-threatening' leak at Belgian nuclear plant causes shutdown | 25 Dec 2015 | A nuclear reactor in Belgium has been taken offline less than a week after starting up again. A water leak on a generator outside of the plant's nuclear area forced the shutdown. A spokesperson for the Belgian energy company, Electrabel, told news agencies that the Doel 3 reactor near Antwerp had been shut down so the water leak could be repaired...The reactor had only this week been brought back online after a period of inactivity lasting over 18 months due to hairline fractures discovered in the reactor. A similar problem also shut down the Tihange 2 reactor, but both reactors have [insanely] been deemed safe to operate.

Ballot shenanigans in plot to stop Trump --Corporate-owned GOP wants one of their TPP-pimping dirt-bags on the ballot | 24 Dec 2015 | Critics of Republican presidential primary front-runner and billionaire Donald Trump, not having encountered his type of self-reliant, self-funded, brash and blunt candidacy, have taken to lobbing challenges to his ballot access to oppose him. Unsuccessfully, so far. But analysts do point out that getting the GOP nomination actually is a laborious process of lining up dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of delegates who are party faithful, and they wonder if the earthquake-generating candidate can establish the foot soldier network to do that.

Black Lives Matter holds 'Black Xmas' protests in Minnesota, California | 23 Dec 2015 | Black Lives Matter held demonstrations in Minnesota and California on Wednesday to protest police killings of unarmed blacks, dubbing the day "Black Xmas" to show it could affect the economy on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

In Minnesota, a demonstration at the Mall of America by protesters angered by the police killing of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis last month was swiftly broken up.

Trump dominates GOP field heading into 2016 | 23 Dec 2015 | Donald Trump seems set to end 2015 as the dominant force in the race for next year's Republican nomination for president, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz now a clear -- yet distant -- second after a strong debate performance, a new CNN/ORC poll released on Wednesday has found. Trump tops the field with 39%, according to the poll of Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters. That's more than double the share backing Cruz, who, at 18%, has inched up 2 points since the last CNN/ORC poll, which was taken in late November.

Homeland Security rejects Minn. request for Real ID extension | 22 Dec 2015 | The federal government has denied a request from the state's political leaders for more time to get compliant with the new Real ID requirement, but it won't immediately imperil the ability of Minnesotans to board commercial flights after Jan. 1. In a letter sent Monday, two assistant secretaries at the Department of Homeland Security wrote to Gov. Mark Dayton (D) that "Minnesota has not provided adequate justification for continued noncompliance with the Real ID standards that would warrant granting your request for extension," the letter stated.

TSA makes it harder for passengers to avoid 'virtual strip search' scanners just in time for the Christmas rush

December 23, 2015 by legitgov

TSA makes it harder for passengers to avoid 'virtual strip search' scanners just in time for the Christmas rush - which will see six million Americans take to the skies --The TSA tweaked guidelines so travelers have to go through the machines --Government agency said it was bringing change to replace pat-downs --Controversial scanners are dotted in airports across the country | 23 Dec 2015 | Air travelers will find it harder to avoid body scanners after airport security protocols were quietly ramped up. The six million Americans who are expected to take to the skies over Christmas could face delays after the Transport Security Administration (TSA) tweaked guidelines so passengers will have to go through the machines, which have been described as 'virtual strip searches'. Homeland Security wrote in a document that the TSA was updating 'the ability of individuals to opt-out of AIR (Advanced Imaging Technology) screening in favor of physical screening.' This now clears the way for the TSA to 'direct mandatory body scanner screening for some passengers as warranted by security considerations,' CBS reported.

Moscow to consider countermeasures after US extends anti-Russia sanctions | 23 Dec 2015 | Moscow says it will consider countermeasures after the US announced an updated sanctions list targeting 34 individuals and entities in order to "pressure Russia" over the Ukraine crisis. The Kremlin, in turn, said it will analyze Washington's decision and may develop countermeasures. The sanctions imposed on Tuesday are "a continuation of this unfriendly stance towards Russia, a continuation of the stance which has a devastating impact on bilateral relations," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Archie the toothless 41-year-old bear is put to sleep after a last meal of a cream-filled doughnut and tapioca pudding

December 23, 2015 by legitgov

Archie the toothless 41-year-old bear is put to sleep after a last meal of a cream-filled doughnut and tapioca pudding | 21 Dec 2015 | A beloved toothless, 41-year-old bear in the middle of a permit dispute between his owners and the state was put to sleep last week after finishing a last meal that included a cream-filled doughnut. The black bear named Archie had been in failing health for months and wasn't expected to live through hibernation, said owners Jeffrey and Debra Gillium. He was euthanized by a veterinarian on Friday after the Gilliums gave him a big breakfast of dog food mixed with tapioca pudding and a doughnut. The Gilliums had fought to keep Archie despite failing to get a permit when Ohio tightened rules for keeping dangerous animals. They argued that the bear was old and unlikely to escape his fenced enclosure near Lodi, roughly 40 miles southwest of Cleveland. [Correction: CLG had originally reported that Archie, the beloved black bear, 'died in his sleep.' (See: Archie the Bear, Center of Ohio Dept. of Agriculture Battle With Lodi Family, Dies at Home By Lori Price 18 Dec 2015.) In fact, Archie was euthanized, as summarized above. CLG regrets the error.]

Obama signs $1.1 trillion spending package, approves controversial CISA surveillance legislation

Obama signs $1.1 trillion spending package, approves controversial CISA surveillance legislation | 19 Dec 2015 | President Barack Obama signed a $1.1 trillion spending package which bankrolls the government through next year. While it includes tax breaks for low-wage earners, it also includes a controversial cybersecurity measure slipped in during negotiations. Labeled the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, it is actually a combination of three bills passed by Congress over the year, including the often-criticized Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA). The new law authorizes companies to share information about cyber threats with "any federal entity." Any company participating in the data sharing would be immune from consumer lawsuits. Once the Department of Homeland Security has all the pertinent details, they could be passed along to the FBI and NSA for further investigation and, potentially, legal action.

Grand Jury Declines to Indict Anyone in Death of Sandra Bland | 21 Dec 2015 | Grand jurors in Texas declined on Monday to indict anyone in connection to the July death of a Chicago-area woman, Sandra Bland, at the Waller County jail, one of the special prosecutors assigned to the case said. But Darrell Jordan, the special prosecutor, said that "the case is still open," and that grand jurors would reconvene next month to discuss other aspects of the case. Many activists have called for charges against Brian Encinia, the Texas state trooper who arrested Ms. Bland after a routine traffic stop turned contentious. Mr. Jordan said Monday's decision not to indict anyone related only to Ms. Bland's death and to the conduct of the jail staff.

Congress's $12 billion giveaway to health insurers

Congress's $12 billion giveaway to health insurers | 15 Dec 2015 | As Congress rushes to pass an omnibus tax/spending bill for the coming year, it's concocting a special tax break for health-insurance companies. And it amounts to a back-door bailout. Until this week, insurance-company lobbyists and their allies in the White House were pushing for an outright bailout, spending taxpayer dollars to cover what insurers are losing on ObamaCare plans to persuade insurers to keep selling them...This is good news for the insurers - but only insurers. The taxpayers are still on the losing side in this crony-capitalism deal...Suspending the tax is in effect handing the industry an estimated $12 billion a year, according to the Congressional Budget Office, exceeding even what insurers would've received in a bailout.

The plant was the first to be reopened following the 2011 Fukushima disaster, despite warnings over tectonic risks. The drills in Kagoshima Prefecture in southwestern Japan, within 30 km of the power plant, simulated a serious nuclear accident, Kyodo news reported. At least 1,200 residents who were living within 5 km from the Sendai plant were evacuated by buses and other vehicles.

Until today it was thought that Abdeslam, a Belgian-born Frenchman who is still on the run, was questioned once by a traffic patrol on the day after the atrocities...Hamza Attou, a Belgian friend who has been charged with 'assisting in terrorist activity' by driving Salah to Brussels, told prosecutors they were stopped 'not once, but three times'.
