May 20, 2015 by legitgov

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. After Ramadi fell on Sunday, Shi'ite militiamen allied to the Iraqi army had advanced to a nearby base in preparation for a counterattack on the city, which lies in the Sunni Muslim province of Anbar, just 110 km (70 miles) northwest of Baghdad. 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".

Nuclear Regulatory Commission Opens Probe at Indian Point After Transformer Explosion, Fire | 19 May 2015 | New York state is renewing its call for tougher oversight of electrical transformers at the Indian Point Energy Center after the third failure in eight years of one of the power-transfer devices at the nuclear plant. A transformer for Indian Point's unit 3 exploded and caught fire May 9 in the nonnuclear section of the power plant 30 miles north of New York City. The state's call for more intensive inspections comes as Entergy Corp., the owner of Indian Point, seeks to renew its operating licenses for units 2 and 3 with the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The state has opposed the renewal.

May 20, 2015 by legitgov

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?

May 19, 2015 by legitgov

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

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' | 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.

Pentagon: If Ramadi falls, US will help Baghdad

May 18, 2015 by legitgov

After funding and arming ISIS, the Pentagon has its excuse to go back to Iraq: Pentagon: If Ramadi falls, US will help Baghdad | 18 May 2015 | The Pentagon said on Sunday that ISIL fighters had gained the advantage in fighting in Ramadi and that if the western Iraqi city fell, the U.S.-led coalition would support Iraqi forces "to take it back later." While stopping short of confirming ISIL's statement it had seized full control of Anbar province's capital, the Defense Department appeared to leave open that possibility, which would mark a major defeat for the Baghdad government.

Saudi Arabia 'to get nuclear weapons'

May 18, 2015 by legitgov

Saudi Arabia 'to get nuclear weapons' | 17 May 2015 | Saudi Arabia has taken the "strategic decision" to acquire "off-the-shelf" atomic weapons from Pakistan, risking a new arms race in the Middle East, according to senior American officials. The move by the Gulf kingdom [of terrorists], which has financed much of Islamabad's nuclear programme over the past three decades, comes amid growing anger among Sunni Arab states over a deal backed by President Barack Obama, which they 'fear' could allow their arch foe, Shi’ite Iran, to develop a nuclear bomb. The agreement, which is due to be finalised by the end of next month and involves the permanent members of the UN security council and Germany, is designed to roll back part of Tehran's nuclear programme in return for an easing of UN sanctions.

Got it?] | 17 May 2015 | A Pakistani national sentenced to death for drug smuggling has been decapitated in Saudi Arabia, AFP reports.

US special forces kill Isis commander and capture wife in Syria raid --Pentagon spokesman tells Guardian: 'No one's going to Gitmo' | 16 May 2015 | US special operations forces have killed an Islamic State commander through a dramatic and secretive raid into Syria and have taken a woman prisoner, the first US-held detainee of the war against Isis [I-CIA-SIS] and a move that places immediate stress on one of Barack Obama's signature wartime policies. Ashton Carter, the US defense secretary, confirmed on Saturday that Obama ordered the elite troops to raid a location in eastern Syria and "capture" an Isis figure, Abu Sayyaf. Unusually, Carter said the raid also targeted the man's wife, identified as Umm Sayyaf. [I wonder what Obama and the US corporate-run media would say about a raid on US soil by Syrian special forces?]
