U.S. House panel votes to authorize lawsuit against Obama

U.S. House panel votes to authorize lawsuit against Obama 24 July 2014 Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday took another step toward authorizing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama, claiming he has overstepped his executive powers. In a partisan vote of 7-4, the House Rules Committee approved the legislation, likely setting it up for consideration by the full House next week. The Republican initiative already has spawned a bitter debate with Democrats less than four months before elections that will determine the political control of Congress next year. [LOL! The same hypocritical GOP scum-bags were *silent* when unelected dictator George W. Sociopath was *waterboarding* people. --LRP]

Prosecutors Are Reading Emails From Inmates to Lawyers

Prosecutors Are Reading Emails From Inmates to Lawyers 22 July 2014 Jailhouse conversations have been many a defendant's downfall through incriminating words spoken to inmates or visitors, or in phone calls to friends or relatives. Inmates' calls to or from lawyers, however, are generally exempt from such monitoring. But across the country, federal prosecutors have begun reading prisoners’ emails to lawyers -- a practice wholly embraced in Brooklyn, New York, where prosecutors have said they intend to read such emails in almost every case. The issue has spurred court battles over whether inmates have a right to confidential email communications with their lawyers -- a question on which federal judges have been divided.

The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist

The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist --'Not even death provides a guarantee of getting off the list.' 23 July 2014 The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither "concrete facts" nor "irrefutable evidence" to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept. The "March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance," a 166-page document issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center, spells out the government's secret rules for putting individuals on its main terrorist database, as well as the no fly list and the selectee list, which triggers enhanced screening at airports and border crossings. The new guidelines allow individuals to be designated as representatives of terror organizations without any evidence they are actually connected to such organizations, and it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to place "entire categories" of people the government is tracking onto the no fly and selectee lists. It broadens the authority of government officials to "nominate" people to the watchlists based on what is vaguely described as "fragmentary information."

More than 600 people - most of them Palestinians - have been killed in the current conflict between Israel and militants in Gaza...U.S. lawmakers tend to be heavily pro-Israel. [Too bad Detroit isn't Tel Aviv. Start reading.]

US: No link to Russian gov't in plane downing 22 Jul 2014 Senior U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday that Russia was responsible for "creating the conditions" [?] that led to the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, but they offered no evidence of direct Russian government involvement.  The intelligence officials were cautious in their assessment, noting that while the Russians have been arming separatists in eastern Ukraine [and US taxpayers fund - over $1 billion, thus far - the illegitimate Nazi regime in Ukraine], the U.S. had no direct evidence that the missile used to shoot down the passenger jet came from Russia.
