September 13, 2014 by legitgov

Congress could strip passports from American ISIS fighters --Legislation would revoke papers of Americans who [allegedly] join Islamic State 12 Sept 2014 In light of intelligence reports that more than 100 Americans have [allegedly] signed on as fighters with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and other Republicans in Congress have launched legislation to revoke their passports and strip them of their U.S. citizenship. But while the idea has found some surface appeal in Congress, it has run into some resistance in the intelligence community, where there's debate about whether that is the best way to gather information and combat terrorism.

The World's Rarest Bat Is Discovered Living on a Golf Course in Miami --A group of citizen scientists is fanning out across the city to save the Florida bonneted bat. 9 Sept 2014 If you were one of the world's rarest and most endangered bats, where would you choose to live? Perhaps in a remote forest or woodland? Nah, if you're a Florida bonneted bat, you're going to Miami. And just like thousands of snowbirds that flock to the city on Biscayne Bay, you like to hang out at the golf course. Only an estimated 500 of the bonneted bats are left--no one knows for sure how many--and they are scattered around six South Florida counties.

September 13, 2014 by legitgov

Obama Administration Says U.S. Is 'At War' With ISIS 12 Sept 2014 The Obama administration said for the first time Friday that the United States is "at war" with ISIS militants. Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, used the language at least three times during his daily briefing with reporters. "The U.S. is at war with ISIL in the same way the U.S. is at war with al-Qaeda," he said, using an alternate acronym for the group. Minutes earlier, a Pentagon spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, used similar terminology. [CLG's 'alternate acronym for the group: I-CIA-SIS.']

Obama officials now say US 'at war' with ISIS 12 Sept 2014 The United States is "at war" with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), White House and Pentagon officials said Friday, marking a significant departure from the more cautious rhetoric President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry used earlier this week. "This is not the Iraq War of 2002, but make no mistake, we know we are at war with ISIL," Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said during a briefing Friday afternoon, using an alternate name for the Islamic militant group that has seized territory throughout Iraq and Syria. He qualified that the U.S. is at war "in the same way we are at war and continue to be at war with al Qaida and its affiliates."

No residences were immediately threatened, and the evacuation was precautionary, fire officials said.

September 13, 2014 by legitgov

U.S., EU hit Russia with more sanctions despite Ukraine ceasefire 12 Sept 2014 The United States and European Union imposed new sanctions against Russia on Friday, tightening financial measures against Moscow over its intervention in Ukraine despite a week-old ceasefire which has brought calm to the embattled east. President Vladimir Putin called the new sanctions "a bit strange" given the truce, part of a peace deal reached last week between Kiev and pro-Russian rebels...Moscow has already responded to sanctions by banning the import of most Western food. It said it could take further measures and might appeal to the World Trade Organization.

Assange Swedish arrest warrant upheld

September 12, 2014 by legitgov

Assange Swedish arrest warrant upheld 12 Sept 2014 Lawyers for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Friday appealed a decision by a Swedish court to uphold an arrest warrant issued for him. The defence argued that the warrant issued in November 2010 should be repealed on the grounds that the prosecutor has failed to act in a timely manner, violating Assange's rights. The defence is seeking to overturn a July decision by a Stockholm District Court judge that the warrant should remain in place for Assange, 43, who has lived for the past two years in the Ecuadorean embassy in London to avoid extradition.

The American fear-mongering machine is about to scare us back into war again

September 12, 2014 by legitgov

The American fear-mongering machine is about to scare us back into war again --Thanks to a say-anything media, hawkish politicians and an Orwellian administration, a war-weary public is terrified. 10 Sept 2014 The White House declared on Tuesday night that it needn’t bother to ask Congress for war powers, and Congress is more than happy to relieve itself of the responsibility of asking for them – or, you know, voting. Members of both parties have actually been telling the president to ignore the legislative branch entirely – as well as his constitutional and legal requirements. It seems so long ago now that presidential candidate Obama said, "The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation."

Texas Textbook Battle Heats Up With Claims of Conservative Bias

September 12, 2014 by legitgov

Texas Textbook Battle Heats Up With Claims of Conservative Bias 11 Sept 2014 Another battle could be brewing over Texas textbooks, this time because scholars say the proposed lessons distort history. New social studies books, on which the Texas State Board of Education is set to vote in November, promote pro-Christian religious and conservative political biases, according to a report released Wednesday from the nonprofit Texas Freedom Network Education Fund. History scholars argue in the report that a number of the books under consideration contain misleading information on topics like America's founding and world religions.

Seniors Forced Into Poverty as Education Department Demands Payment

September 12, 2014 by legitgov

Seniors Forced Into Poverty as Education Department Demands Payment 11 Sept 2014 The Education Department is demanding so much money from seniors with defaulted student loans that it's forcing tens of thousands of them into poverty, according to a government audit. At least 22,000 Americans aged 65 and older had a part of their Social Security benefits garnished last year to the point that their monthly benefits were below federal poverty thresholds, according to the Government Accountability Office. Education Department-initiated collections on defaulted federal student loans left at least another 83,000 Americans aged 64 and younger with poverty-level Social Security payments, GAO data show. Federal auditors cautioned that the number of Americans forced to accept poverty-level benefits because of past defaults on federal student loans are surely higher.

Syria airstrikes need boots on the ground, AF officer says 11 Sept 2014 U.S. special operations forces will be needed on the ground in Syria to make the expanded air war President Obama has ordered there more effective, a senior Air Force commander told USA TODAY. The spy planes flying missions over Iraq and Syria can develop a list of potential Islamic State targets, said the commander who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe what the war might look like. But it's "absolutely crucial that pilots are talking to an American on the ground" who can verify that the target is legitimate.
