Putin calls on Ukraine militia to let blocked Kiev troops to cross into Russia 28 Aug 2014 President Putin has called on the self-defense militias in Ukraine to provide Kiev's military units blocked in the east of the country with a safe humanitarian corridor to cross into Russia. "It is obvious that the militia has reached a considerable success in curbing Kiev's military operation, that had been a deadly threat to the population of Donbass and already led to heavy casualties among civilians," the Russian leader said in a statement. As a result of militias' counter-offense, large numbers of Ukrainian troops - many of whom were taking part in Kiev's so-called anti-terrorist operation "against their will" and "just following orders" - have been surrounded, the President added.

Global warming impacts 'severe, widespread, and irreversible', UN warns --Urgent action needed to tackle man-made climate change, leaked report warns 27 Aug 2014 The world faces "severe, widespread and irreversible" effects of climate change unless it takes urgent action to limit global warming by cutting back on burning fossil fuels, the United Nations has warned in a leaked draft report. Man-made global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions is already here and its effects "might already be considered dangerous", according to the draft of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report. Extreme weather such as floods, heat waves and droughts are expected to become more common while climate change may even worsen the risk of violent conflicts, the report warns.

Australia adds new colour to temperature maps as heat soars --Forecast temperatures are so extreme that the Bureau of Meteorology has had to add a new colour to its scale. It is a sign of things to come. 8 Jan 2013 Global warming is turning the volume of extreme weather up, Spinal Tap-style, to 11. The temperature forecast for next Monday by Australia's Bureau of Meteorology is so unprecedented - over 52C - that it has had to add a new colour to the top of its scale, a suitably incandescent purple. Australia's highest recorded temperature is 50.7C, set in January 1960 in South Australia. The record for the hottest average day across the nation was set on Monday, at 40.3C, exceeding a 40-year-old record. Wildfires are raging across New South Wales and Tasmania.

White House considers proposals by corporate lobbyists to sharply increase legal immigration, provide hundreds of thousands of new green cards for high-tech workers

August 27, 2014 by legitgov

White House considers proposals by corporate lobbyists to sharply increase legal immigration, provide hundreds of thousands of new green cards for high-tech workers 27 Aug 2014 The White House is considering proposals from business and immigrant rights groups that are pressing President Obama to provide hundreds of thousands of new green cards for high-tech workers and the relatives of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. The behind-the-scenes lobbying comes as Obama prepares to announce a series of executive actions that could include plans to defer the deportations of millions of people living in the country illegally, most of whom are Hispanic. Opponents of such proposals, including many Republicans, have argued that increasing the number of immigrants allowed into the country to work could harm American workers in search of jobs in an economy still recovering from the effects of a global recession. "The increases in foreign workers demanded by corporate lobbyists would be in addition to the administration's plan to implement amnesty by executive fiat, providing work permits to 5 to 6 million illegal immigrants and visa overstays who will be able to take any job in any industry, public or private," said Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a leading opponent of relaxing immigration policy.

Harry Reid backs military gear to local police

August 27, 2014 by legitgov

Useless is as useless does: Harry Reid backs military gear to local police 26 Aug 2014 Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he supports keeping the flow of military surplus equipment to local police departments -- though he backs increasing oversight on how it is used. The protests in Ferguson, Missouri, have drawn a police response that includes law enforcement officials armed with weaponry that several lawmakers have criticized as overmilitarized in appearance, with camouflage-clad officers wielding heavy weapons and armored vehicles. Many local police departments are able to acquire military-grade arms and equipment through the Defense Department's "1033" program, established by Congress in the '90s, which allows that equipment to trickle to the police.

Former MI6 counter-terrorism chief warns against rush to overhaul UK laws

August 27, 2014 by legitgov

Former MI6 counter-terrorism chief warns against rush to overhaul UK laws 25 Aug 2014 Britain should resist a rush to overhaul its fundamental legal principles in the face of an "unproven threat" from homegrown militants fighting in Syria and Iraq, the former global counter-terrorism director of MI6 has said. In an interview with the Guardian, Richard Barrett criticised government plans for new laws to tackle British extremists and warned against Boris Johnson's suggestion that Britons who travel to Iraq or Syria should be presumed guilty of involvement in terrorism unless they can prove their innocence...In a newspaper column described as "draconian" by the former attorney general, Johnson called for British jihadists to lose their citizenship, proposed the return of control orders and urged David Cameron to intervene against Islamic State (Isis) militarily. The home secretary, Theresa May, said last week that banning orders for extremist groups would be considered again -- even if they "fall short of the legal threshold for terrorist proscription" -- alongside powers to stop radical preachers.

Video of James Foley beheading 'may have been staged'

August 26, 2014 by legitgov

Video of James Foley beheading 'may have been staged' 25 Aug 2014 A film purporting to show the beheading of James Foley was probably staged, according to a forensic science company, which suggests the American journalist's execution may have been carried out off-camera. A blip in the footage, released on social media last week by Islamic State militants, indicated that Foley may have had to repeat a line as he read a script to camera while kneeling in the sand with his hands tied. The footage was most likely edited later using "slick post-production techniques", according to the analysis for The Times in London by an unnamed international forensic science company that has worked for police forces across Britain, the news organisation claimed.

U.S. relies on Persian Gulf bases for airstrikes in Iraq 26 Aug 2014 The U.S. military is relying on bases in the Persian Gulf and elsewhere in the Middle East to carry out airstrikes in Iraq, but is masking the locations and other details about the units and aircraft involved to avoid embarrassing partners [aka other terrorists] in the region. The Persian Gulf monarchies have long hosted U.S. forces to bolster their own security. But most have shied away from acknowledging the American presence and are even more reluctant now with U.S. warplanes bombing Iraq.

Expert urges California nuclear plant closure over earthquake threat 25 Aug 2014 A senior federal nuclear expert is urging regulators to shut down California's last operating nuclear plant until they can determine whether the facility's twin reactors can withstand powerful shaking from any one of several nearby earthquake faults. Michael Peck, who for five years was Diablo Canyon's lead on-site inspector, says in a 42-page, confidential report that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is not applying the safety rules it set out for the plant's operation...Continuing to run the reactors, Peck writes, "challenges the presumption of nuclear safety."
