Military commanders get OK to shoot down drones over bases

Military commanders get OK to shoot down drones over bases | 08 Aug 2017 | The Pentagon has sent new guidance to the armed services that lays out the military's authority to disable or shoot down any drone that violates airspace restrictions over a U.S. base and is deemed a security risk. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis told Pentagon reporters Monday that a classified policy was approved in July. On Friday, additional public information was sent to military bases around the country so officials can alert their communities about the restrictions and the actions the military can take. He said the new policy provides details about the actions the military can take to stop any threat, including destroying or seizing any unmanned aircraft -- including the smaller ones that the general public can easily buy -- that is flown over a base.

U.S. soldier who murdered Afghan civilians will blame controversial malaria drug

U.S. soldier who murdered Afghan civilians will blame controversial malaria drug | 08 Aug 2017 | An Army court will decide this week whether to review and perhaps reduce the life sentence of a soldier who massacred Afghan civilians -- and in the process it will judge a controversial malaria drug given to troops that is known to cause hallucinations, anxiety and paranoia. Attorneys for Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, the serviceman convicted in 2013 of killing 16 Afghans in the worst U.S. military massacre since Vietnam, are expected to raise the soldier's use of mefloquine, also known by the brand name Lariam, before or during his deployment. The prescription was not considered during the investigation and his legal team will use this as the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals weighs whether Bales is entitled to a new sentencing hearing on two procedural issues -- whether the prosecution failed to disclose evidence related to his case and that the court failed to investigate a military judge’s disclosure of protected information.

Psychologists who helped design CIA's torture programme to stand trial | 08 Aug 2017 | Two psychologists who helped design the CIA's post-9/11 detainee interrogation programme will stand trial in September for promoting the use of torture methods like water-boarding, starvation and chaining prisoners in extreme stress positions. Federal judges in Washington state late Monday ordered a lawsuit on behalf of three former detainees -- one of whom died in a CIA prison following harsh interrogation -- to go to a jury trial, rejecting efforts to force a settlement and prevent a full hearing of the case. The lawsuit, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the ex-detainees, will be the first involving the torture program to go to trial. The government has headed off previous efforts, citing what is said is a need to protect sensitive intelligence.

North Korea is 'carefully examining' a plan to strike U.S. Pacific territory Guam with missiles after Trump says the North will be met with 'fire and fury'

North Korea is 'carefully examining' a plan to strike U.S. Pacific territory Guam with missiles after Trump says the North will be met with 'fire and fury like the world has never seen' if it threatens U.S. | 08 Aug 2017 | North Korea said it is 'carefully examining' a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, just hours after President Donald Trump told the country that any threat to the U.S. would be met with 'fire and fury.' A spokesman for the Korean People's Army, in a statement carried by the North's state-run KCNA news agency, said Wednesday the strike plan will be 'put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment' once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision. In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the U.S. showed signs of provocation. Earlier Pyongyang said it was ready to give Washington a 'severe lesson' with its strategic nuclear force in response to any U.S. military action. The statement from the North comes after Trump told the country's leader Tuesday that additional threats of violence against the U.S. 'will be met with fire and the fury like the world has never seen.'

 

Trump Threatens 'Fire and Fury' Against North Korea if It Endangers U.S.

Trump Threatens 'Fire and Fury' Against North Korea if It Endangers U.S. | 08 Aug 2017 | President Trump threatened on Tuesday to unleash "fire and fury" against North Korea if it endangers the United States as tensions with the isolated nuclear-armed state grow into perhaps the most serious foreign policy challenge yet in his young administration. "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States," Mr. Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before." The president’s comments came as North Korea earlier in the day escalated its criticism of the United States, as well as its neighboring allies, by warning that it will mobilize all its resources to take "physical action" in retaliation against the latest round of United Nations sanctions.

Safety experts outraged as Trump administration nixes sleep apnea test for truckers and train engineers

Safety experts outraged as Trump administration nixes sleep apnea test for truckers and train engineers | 08 Aug 2017 | The Trump administration is cutting regulations that would require sleep apnea screening for truck drivers and train engineers. The decision, according to safety experts, could put millions of lives at risk. The fatigue-inducing disorder, which affects roughly one in five Americans, has been blamed for deadly rail crashes in New York City and New Jersey and several highway crashes. However, late last week the Federal Railroad Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said they are no longer pursuing the regulation that would require testing for it.

Trump: 'Fake news media' not covering UN sanctions vote on North Korea

Trump: 'Fake news media' not covering UN sanctions vote on North Korea | 07 Aug 2017 | President Trump on Monday slammed the "fake news media" for failing to report on this weekend's United Nations resolution to sanction North Korea, despite widespread coverage of the vote. "The Fake News Media will not talk about the importance of the United Nations Security Council's 15-0 vote in favor of sanctions on N. Korea!" Trump tweeted. The U.N. Security Council unanimously passed the resolution Saturday, which will slap new sanctions on North Korea in retaliation for its repeated ballistic missile testing and continued efforts to develop nuclear weapons. The penalties will largely target its major exports like coal, iron and seafood, and could possibly lead to a billion-dollar financial hit.

North Korea now making missile-ready nuclear weapons, U.S. analysts claim

From the same 'people' who brought us babies pulled from incubators and WMDs in Iraq: North Korea now making missile-ready nuclear weapons, U.S. analysts claim | 08 Aug 2017 | North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, U.S. intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment. The new analysis completed last month by the Defense Intelligence Agency comes on the heels of another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the country's atomic arsenal. The U.S. calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Some independent experts believe the number of bombs is much smaller.

Sanders 'litmus test' alarms Democrats

Sanders 'litmus test' alarms Democrats --Bernie Sanders's single-payer plan sparks fears [by Deep State dirt-bags] of primary election challenges. | 07 Aug 2017 | House and Senate Democrats have wondered for months whether Bernie Sanders's supporters might choose to focus their energy on launching primary challenges to party moderates in 2018. They're about to get an answer. Sanders has decided the moment is right to launch his proposal for the single-payer health insurance system that helped form the backbone of his presidential message. And Democrats who don't get behind it could find themselves on the wrong side of the most energetic wing of the party -- as well as the once and possibly future presidential candidate who serves as its figurehead.

Sessions blasts Rahm Emanuel over sanctuary suit

Sessions blasts Rahm Emanuel over sanctuary suit | 07 Aug 2017 | Attorney General Jeff Sessions lashed out at Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Monday, delivering an unusually caustic reaction to a new lawsuit challenging the Trump administration's plans to crack down on so-called sanctuary cities. Emanuel announced the filing of the suit earlier in the day, complaining about a new Justice Department policy attempting to cut off grants to police departments that decline to cooperate with federal immigration officials. Sessions's barbed reply argued that record numbers of murders in Chicago in recent years were attributable at least in part to Emanuel's decision to stick with a sanctuary policy that encourages police to ignore the immigration status of those they encounter.
