May 21, 2015 by legitgov

105,000 gallons of oil may have spilled in Santa Barbara County --The 24-inch wide pipeline was installed in 1987 [because there are few regulations in the corporate-owned cesspool aka the United States]. | 20 May 21015 | (CA) The operator of an underground pipeline that ruptured and released up to 105,000 gallons of crude oil in Santa Barbara County -- and tens of thousands of gallons into the ocean -- said Wednesday that the spill happened after a series of mechanical problems caused the line to be shut down. The problems began about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday at two pump stations that move oil through the 11-mile pipeline along the Gaviota Coast, Rick McMichael, director of pipeline operations for Plains All American Pipeline, said at a news conference.

Six Baltimore police officers indicted in death of Freddie Gray | 21 May 2015 | Six Baltimore police officers were indicted Thursday in connection with the April death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old who suffered a fatal spine injury while in police custody, touching off a wave of protests and riots across parts of the city. The expected grand jury action leaves the most significant charges in the case unchanged, and moves the case from the lower District Court and into Circuit Court. The officers, each of whom faces multiple counts, now also face a charge of reckless endangerment, Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said at a press conference Thursday.

Obama's Secret 'Trade' Bill, Subjugating U.S. to Corporate Control, Clears Senate Hurdle

May 21, 2015 by legitgov

Obama's Secret 'Trade' Bill, Subjugating U.S. to Corporate Control, Clears Senate Hurdle | 21 May 2015 | President Obama's bid to secure a broad trade corporate welfare deal with Pacific Rim nations cleared a major hurdle Thursday as the Senate voted to advance legislation that would give him expanded authority to complete the accord. On a vote of 62 to 38, the measure for fast-track authority received just enough Democratic support to keep it moving, following a last-ditch lobbying effort by Obama and his top advisers. The fate of the legislation, known as the Trade Promotion Authority, hung in the balance for more than 30 minutes during the vote.

State Police Must Turn Over Adam Lanza's Papers - FOI Commission

May 21, 2015 by legitgov

State Police Must Turn Over Adam Lanza's Papers - FOI Commission --State has 30 days to appeal | 13 May 2015 | State police must make available to the public personal documents seized from Adam Lanza's house during the course of the investigation into the 2012 killings of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the state's Freedom of Information Commission unanimously ruled Wednesday. The ruling came as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request from The Courant seeking copies of documents mentioned in the state police's report into the massacre but never made available to the public. The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, which oversees the state's police force, has blocked The Courant's efforts to obtain those documents since January 2014. As of late Wednesday afternoon, The Courant had not received the requested documents.

I've Read Obama's Secret Trade Deal. Elizabeth Warren Is Right to Be Concerned.

May 21, 2015 by legitgov

I've Read Obama's Secret Trade Deal. Elizabeth Warren Is Right to Be Concerned. | 19 May 2015 | "You need to tell me what's wrong with this trade agreement, not one that was passed 25 years ago," a frustrated President Barack Obama recently complained about criticisms of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). He's right. The public criticisms of the TPP have been vague. That's by design--anyone who has read the text of the agreement could be jailed for disclosing its contents...So-called "cleared advisors" like me are prohibited from sharing publicly the criticisms we've lodged about specific proposals and approaches. The government has created a perfect Catch 22: The law prohibits us from talking about the specifics of what we've seen, allowing the president to criticize us for not being specific.

Tough anti-terrorism measures could strip suspects of welfare, vote

May 21, 2015 by legitgov

Abbott using 'terrorism' as a cover for implementing more austerity measures: Tough anti-terrorism measures could strip suspects of welfare, vote | 21 May 2015 | Terrorists would lose their welfare payments and the right to vote, and the citizenship oath would be toughened up, under a raft of anti-terrorism measures being considered by the Abbott Government. The Herald Sun understands the Government will soon introduce laws to strip Australian citizenship from dual nationals who are committing terrorism offences. And further measures are being considered to combat Australians who fight alongside terror groups such as Islamic State, or support them by fundraising or recruiting. They include restricting their rights to an Australian passport, banning them from voting, and refusing them access to Medicare, the dole and any other welfare.

Wave of medical police state refugees to flee California if SB 277 signed into law

May 21, 2015 by legitgov

Wave of medical police state refugees to flee California if SB 277 signed into law | 20 May 2015 | California will be the origin of America's first wave of medical police state refugees fleeing medical tyranny if Gov. Jerry Brown signs SB 277 into law. SB 277 is California's pharma-funded vaccine assault on all parents and children. It would eliminate all personal belief exemptions and force nearly all children in California to be forcibly injected with vaccines that are knowingly manufactured with neurotoxic substances such as mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and MSG. If he signs the law, Gov. Brown will be declaring medical genocide against children whose genetic makeup causes them to have extremely heightened risks to vaccine injury. No child will be safe in California, and the state will cement its position as the first real-life medical police state in America, where risks of a medical civil war skyrocket.

Jeb Bush blames unrest in Iraq on Obama

May 20, 2015 by legitgov

Jeb Bush blames unrest in Iraq on Obama | 20 May 2015 | Jeb Bush sharply criticized President Barack Obama on Tuesday for withdrawing troops from Iraq, but he declined to say whether he would order additional ground forces into the country to repel Islamic State militants. Speaking to about 60 business and Republican leaders in New Hampshire, the former Florida governor and likely presidential candidate blamed the Democratic president for allowing the rise of the violent extremist group that has captured vast parts of Iraq and Syria. But when asked after his campaign event how he would act to contain the Islamic State group in Iraq if elected president, Bush declined to offer any specifics, saying he would rely on the advice of America's military leaders.

Pataki: Send combat troops to fight ISIS

May 20, 2015 by legitgov

Pataki: Send combat troops to fight ISIS | 20 May 2015 | Former Gov. George Pataki, who is expected to launch a presidential bid next week, said Wednesday the U.S. should deploy troops to Iraq to fight ISIS [I-CIA-SIS]. Pataki, a New York Republican, insisted that a deployment of U.S. combat troops would be a limited mission unlike the 2003 American invasion of Iraq -- a war then-President [sic] George W. Bush had insisted would be short-lived...Pataki added that while Americans may be wary of sending troops back into combat the fight against ISIS "is our war." Other likely Republican presidential candidates, like Sen. Lindsey Graham and former Sen. Rick Santorum, have also said they would deploy ground combat troops to fight ISIS -- pledging to send 10,000 American troops.

May 20, 2015 by legitgov

Five big banks face criminal charges and $6b fine over currency rigging --JPMorgan and Citigroup would be the first major US banks to plead guilty to criminal charges in decades. | 20 May 2015 | Five of the world's biggest banks are expected to be hit with a combined bill of more than $US5 billion ($6.3 billion) and criminal charges on Wednesday in a settlement with US and British authorities over rigging of currency markets. US banks JPMorgan and Citigroup and Britain's Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland are expected to plead guilty to criminal charges with the US Department of Justice related to forex manipulation, people familiar with the matter said. It would be unprecedented for the parent companies or main banking arms of so many major banks to plead guilty to criminal charges in a coordinated action.

It will not be paying a fine on forex to the Department of Justice and will not face criminal charges on the matter.

"The focus should be on killing and fighting the American people and their representatives," Bin Laden wrote in one of the newly revealed documents. US intelligence agencies have now declassified more than 100 of these documents taken from Bin Laden's archive, after lawmakers ordered the move and critics accused the CIA of withholding material.

"The focus should be on killing and fighting the American people and their representatives," Bin Laden wrote in one of the newly revealed documents.

Ukraine Regime Open to Hosting Missile-Defense System | 20 May 2015 | Ukraine is open to considering proposals to place a ballistic missile-defense system on its territory to ward off the risk of attacks from Russia, a senior Ukrainian defense official said Wednesday. Oleksandr Turchynov, the head of Ukraine's National Security Council, told Ukrinform news agency in an interview that Russia has become an increased threat since annexing [sic - reunifying] the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea and increasing its military presence there [after the US poured billions into the illegitimate Ukrainian far-right dictatorship, which commits war crimes on a daily basis]. Russian news agencies cited Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying Wednesday that the deployment of a missile-defense system in Ukraine would force Russia to adopt countermeasures.

Iraq deploys tanks as Islamic State tightens grip on Ramadi | 19 May 2015 | Iraqi security forces on Tuesday deployed tanks and artillery around Ramadi to confront Islamic State fighters who have captured the city in a major defeat for the Baghdad government and its Western backers.

As pressure mounted for action to retake the city, a local government official urged Ramadi residents to join the police and the army for what the Shi'ite militiamen said would be the "Battle of Anbar".

Rand Paul to Fight Patriot Act Renewal | 19 May 2015 | Kentucky Senator Rand Paul says he'll try to stop the U.S. Senate from renewing the Patriot Act, an 'anti-terrorism' measure whose broad surveillance powers have become an issue in the 2016 presidential campaign. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, also a Kentucky Republican, will seek passage of a measure this week extending central provisions of the program, which he has called critical to preventing future terrorist attacks. Paul, who is seeking the 2016 Republican nomination for president, said there's no evidence to support that claim and that the program violates the privacy of millions of Americans by allowing the National Security Agency's bulk collection of phone records.

What do Anne Boleyn, Saudi Arabia, and 19 May have in common? By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org | 19 May 2015 | On 19 May 1536, Anne Boleyn was beheaded in by King Henry VIII in London. On 19 May 2015, beheadings have reached 85 by King Salman in Saudi Arabia. Also notable, King Salman is 'headhunting' for eight new executioners, to carry out more beheadings. At least Anne Boleyn got the expert swordsman from Calais! King Salman is seeking executioners with 'no special training.' King Salman's beheaders "would be considered as 'religious functionaries', since they would be serving religious courts and be on the lower end of the civil service pay scale, the ad said." King Henry VIII executed many 'heretics.' One king is criticized in the West for his injustices; one king (running 'neck-and-neck' with ISIS) is praised as an ally of the West for his oil.

U.S. ally Saudi Arabia hiring 8 new executioners after 2015 beheadings hit 85

May 19, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. ally Saudi Arabia hiring 8 new executioners after 2015 beheadings hit 85 [And, it's only May.] | 19 May 2015 | Saudi Arabia, which executes more criminals than any nation except China and Iran, wants to hire eight new executioners. A surge in executions has been witnessed under new King Salman's rule. The job description published online on Monday says no special training is required from applicants. The executioners would be required to behead condemned criminals in public as well as carry out amputations on those convicted of lesser offenses, Reuters reported. The executioners would be considered as 'religious functionaries', since they would be serving religious courts and be on the lower end of the civil service pay scale, the ad said. [Gee, no outcry from anyone in the US government -- particularly the hypocritical sacks of neocon sh*t in the Congress who have such disdain for 'militant Islam' -- or the corporate-run US media? *Apparently,* only beheadings by ISIS (I-CIA-SIS) shock the US conscience. --LRP]

Trident whistleblower: nuclear 'disaster waiting to happen'

Trident whistleblower: nuclear 'disaster waiting to happen' | 17 May 2015 | William McNeilly's exclusive original report to WikiLeaks follows: This is document will enlighten you to the shockingly extreme conditions that our nuclear weapons system is in right now, and has been in the past. It describes different threats and events that have happened and are threats that are highly likely to happen; each one individually should raise maximum concern. I need you to publish this document or send it to someone who will; please, for the safety of the people...I strongly believe that the Prime Minister and most people that defended Trident had no idea about how dire the situation is.

This Antarctic ice shelf could collapse by 2020, NASA says

May 18, 2015 by legitgov

This Antarctic ice shelf could collapse by 2020, NASA says | 15 May 2015 | It has been a really bad week for the ice shelves of the quickly warming Antarctic peninsula, the part of the vast frozen continent that extends northward toward South America. Earlier this week, we learned that the gigantic marine-based Larsen C ice shelf, which is almost as big as Scotland, has several worrisome vulnerabilities -- including a growing rift across it. Scientists from the British Antarctic Survey and several other research centers say this could pose an "imminent risk" to its stability. And now, NASA scientists are giving an even worse verdict for the remnants of the nearby Larsen B ice shelf, much of which already disintegrated back in 2002. Back then, the shelf lost a region larger than Rhode Island, but there are still 618 square miles left of it -- for now.
