N.Y. state about to get first post-Newtown gun law

January 15, 2013 by legitgov

N.Y. state about to get first post-Newtown gun law 15 Jan 2013 Days after calling for an overhaul of gun control in New York following the Connecticut school shooting, Gov. Andrew Cuomo worked out a tough proposal on gun control with legislative leaders who promised to pass the most restrictive gun law in the nation. The measure was approved by the Senate Monday night, 43-18, on the strength of support from Democrats, many of whom previously sponsored the bills that were once blocked by Republicans. Expected to pass easily, the measure would be the "first state-level gun control legislation in the nation since the Newtown massacre," reports CBS New York station WCBS-TV.

January 15, 2013 by legitgov

Duck hunters trigger brief scare at Plymouth nuclear plant 14 Jan 2013 A pair of duck hunters caused a minor scare at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth early Saturday when security personnel at the plant heard gunfire coming from Cape Cod Bay, officials said today. According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Plymouth police, the two were licensed to carry firearms and to hunt, and were not inside the marked-off security zone surrounding the plant on the bay side of the facility operated by the Entergy company. But the operators at the Plymouth plant did not know they were hunters right away and after hearing gunshots coming from the waters nearby, plant security officials reported an "unusual event" to the NRC, the Coast Guard, and Plymouth police.

U.S. troops might be sent to Mali and surrounding countries - Defense officials --U.S. moves to bolster French military campaign in Mali 14 Jan 2013 The Obama administration is preparing to ferry hundreds of additional French troops to the North African country of Mali, bolstering a rapidly evolving military campaign in the latest conflict with Al Qaeda affiliates. U.S. officials said they also were making plans to send drones or other surveillance aircraft and provide help with aerial refueling of French fighter jets, which bombed columns of Al Qaeda[al-CIAduh]-allied militants in northern Mali for a fourth straight day Monday. Defense officials said small numbers of U.S. troops might be sent to Mali and surrounding countries but that they would be limited to a support role.

Senator Asks CIA Nominee When Drones Can Kill Americans

January 15, 2013 by legitgov

Senator Asks CIA Nominee When Drones Can Kill Americans --'Does the President have to provide individual Americans with the opportunity to surrender before killing them?' 14 Jan 2013 The man in charge of America's drone wars will face Senate questioning about perhaps their most controversial aspect: when the president can target American citizens for death. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) sent a letter on Monday to John Brennan, the White House's counterterrorism adviser and nominee to be head of the CIA, asking for an outline of the legal and practical rules that underpin the U.S. government's targeted killing of American citizens suspected of working with 'al-Qaida.' The Obama administration has repeatedly resisted disclosing any such information about its so-called "disposition matrix" targeting terrorists, especially where it concerns possible American targets. Brennan reportedly oversees that matrix from his White House perch, and would be responsible for its execution at CIA director.

January 14, 2013 by legitgov

US, France plan attacks on Syria airports: Report 13 Jan 2013 The US and France are reportedly behind the attacks carried out by foreign-backed militants on military airbases and civilian airports in Syria. Citing a fugitive Syrian army officer, Palestinian Arabic website al-Manar said that attacks on airports had been planned by France and that the raids on airbases and air defense command posts are being carried out by militants under direct supervision of American military officers. The officer went on to say on condition of anonymity that the American officers are training the militants in Turkey and Jordan to carry out such attacks.

US mulls aid to French in Mali, including drones 12 Jan 2013 The US military is weighing support for French forces in Mali including surveillance drones, a US official said Friday, as Washington backed moves to deny safe haven to 'extremists' in the country. US commanders were looking at providing intelligence and aerial refueling tankers among a range of options, such as logistical backup and boosting intelligence sharing, which would involve surveillance drones, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP. Senior US officials held talks with their counterparts in the French capital and other allies on drawing up an action plan, the official said.

Secrets and Lies of the Bailout

January 14, 2013 by legitgov

Secrets and Lies of the Bailout --The federal rescue of Wall Street didn’t fix the economy -- it created a permanent bailout state based on a Ponzi-like confidence scheme. And the worst may be yet to come 04 Jan 2013 It has been four long winters since the federal government, in the hulking, shaven-skulled, Alien Nation-esque form of then-Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, committed $700 billion in taxpayer money to rescue Wall Street from its own chicanery and greed. To listen to the bankers and their allies in Washington tell it, you'd think the bailout was the best thing to hit the American economy since the invention of the assembly line. Not only did it prevent another Great Depression, we've been told, but the money has all been paid back, and the government even made a profit. No harm, no foul -- right? Wrong. It was all a lie -- one of the biggest and most elaborate falsehoods ever sold to the American people.

Obama 'kill list' critic found dead in New York City

Obama 'kill list' critic found dead in New York City 13 Jan 2013 Prominent American blogger and computer prodigy Aaron Swartz, who spoke against US President Barack Obama's "kill list" and cyber attacks against Iran, has been found dead in New York. Police found the body of the 26-year-old in his apartment in New York City borough of Brooklyn on Friday, said a spokeswoman for the city's chief medical examiner. Brooklyn's chief medical examiner ruled the death a suicide by hanging, but no further detail is available about the mysterious death. Last year, Swartz openly criticized US and Israel for launching joint cyber attacks against Iran. The blogger was also vocal in criticizing Obama's so-called kill list and other policies. Obama has been reportedly approving the names put on the "kill lists" used in the targeted killing operations carried out by US assassination drones. [Right, and the lamestream media is too busy pimping ineffective flu vaccines and worrying about whether or not Chuck Hagel will work hard enough for Israel if he leads the Defense Department to talk about Obama's global assassination program.

Montpelier, Ohio, schools to arm janitors

January 14, 2013 by legitgov

Montpelier, Ohio, schools to arm janitors 10 Jan 2013 The Montpelier Exempted Village Schools Board of Education has approved the carrying of handguns by its custodial staff. The 5-0 vote of the board Wednesday night to allow handgun training for four custodians to be able to tote weapons at the K-12 campus at the Williams County school came after last month's deadly shooting rampage [aka false flag] at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. School officials say that having armed personnel - believed to be the first for any school system in Ohio - is designed to thwart incidents of violence and prevent what happened in Newtown, Conn., from occurring here.

Alaska Polar Bear Habitat Designation Tossed By Judge

January 14, 2013 by legitgov

Alaska Polar Bear Habitat Designation Tossed By Judge 11 Jan 2013 A federal judge in Alaska has thrown out a plan designating more than 187,000 square miles as habitat for threatened polar bears. U.S. District Judge [terrorist] Ralph Beistline sent the matter back to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to correct "substantive and procedural deficiencies." The federal government declared the polar bear threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 2008, citing melting sea ice. The move made the polar bear the first species to be designated as threatened under the act because of global warming.

Goldman bankers set for bonus windfall as profits rise 13 Jan 2013 Goldman Sachs bankers are poised for a bigger windfall when bonuses are handed out later this month after the US investment bank enjoyed a stronger 2012. Analysts expect the Wall Street bank to have amassed a total compensation pot, which includes bonuses and salaries, of between $13.3bn (8.2bn pounds) and $13.8bn for 2012. Goldman is forecast to reveal profits of $1.79bn when it kicks off the latest reporting season for Wall Street banks on Wednesday. [See: Arming the Left: Is the time now?

France bombs rebel strongholds in Northern Mali: Security sources 13 Jan 2013 The French Air Force has conducted airstrikes on rebel positions in northern Mali, security sources say. "French planes have just carried out airstrikes in the Kidal region at Aghabo (town)," said an unknown security source on Sunday. Earlier in the day, French fighter jets also targeted the northern city of Gao which had been controlled by the rebels. This comes three days after France took military action in Mali to halt advances made by the rebels who control the north of the West African country.

Gun groups predict assault weapon ban will fail in Congress

January 13, 2013 by legitgov

Gun groups predict assault weapon ban will fail in Congress 13 Jan 2013 Gun rights groups on Sunday forecast that bids to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips would fail in Congress, as Vice President Joe prepares this week to give President Barack Obama proposals to curb gun violence. Even some congressional Democrats indicated that a bill to revive the U.S. assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 would have a difficult time winning passage in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and Democratic-led Senate. "An assault weapons stand-alone ban - on just guns alone... in the political reality that we have today, will not go anywhere," 'Democratic' Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, himself a gun owner, told the CNN program "State of the Union."

Hospitals crack down on workers refusing flu shots

January 13, 2013 by legitgov

Flu fascism: Hospitals crack down on workers refusing flu shots 12 Jan 2013 A thorny question is emerging in the health care world as hospitals increasingly crack down on employees who won't get flu shots. Patients can refuse, so why not doctors and nurses? Affected workers, hospital authorities and published reports say that in the past two months, at least 15 nurses and other hospital staffers in four states have been fired for refusing, and several have resigned. In Rhode Island, one of three states with tough penalties behind a mandatory vaccine policy for health care workers, a labor union is suing over it.

Sheriff's Office wants to fly drones over Orange County skies 12 Jan 2013 (FL) The Orange County Sheriff's Office is experimenting with two surveillance drones that it hopes to turn loose over Metro Orlando skies this summer. Sheriff's spokesman Jeff Williamson would not reveal specific uses for the drones, larger versions of which are known for flying over tribal regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan to drop bombs on suspected terrorists.

Cuomo declares emergency in flu epidemic, issues executive order allowing pharmacists to give more flu shots 12 Jan 2013 Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Saturday declared a public health emergency in New York due to increasing severity of the flu season. In tandem, he issued an executive order that allows pharmacists to give flu shots to people between six months and 18 years of age, suspending rules that limit them to immunizing only adults. More than 19,000 cases of influenza have been reported in New York so this season, almost four time the past year’s total.

French troops in Mali to fight extremists

January 12, 2013 by legitgov

French troops in Mali to fight extremists 11 Jan 2013 France's military started an air operation Friday to help Malian soldiers fight radical Islamists, drawing the former colonial power into a military intervention to oust the al-Qaida[al-CIAduh]-linked militants nine months after they seized control of northern Mali. The arrival of the French dramatically ups the stakes in a conflict taking place in a swath of lawless desert where [CIA-backed] kidnappings and brutality have flourished. It also comes as the Islamists advance ever closer toward the most northern city still under government control and after they fought the Malian military for the first time in months.

Radio host Michael Savage calls for 'Nationalist' third party to challenge GOP 07 Jan 2013 Conservative radio host Michael Savage spoke out against Republicans and Democrats alike on Sunday for pulling a "charade" on the American people, and called for a third political party. The third-most widely heard talk show host, behind only Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity in ratings, explained a new, third "Nationalist" party could focus on "borders, language and culture." He criticized the Tea Party for lacking a "charismatic leader," saying it needs restructuring and calling it the "rudiment" of the new Nationalist Party. Savage added that the word "nationalism" needs to be redefined after previously being associated with Hitler and the National Socialist Party, the Nazis, of 1930s Germany.

Sandy Hook endpoint - explode the US police state and force taxpayers to pay for it: Obama administration plan to fund police, surveillance equipment in schools 10 Jan 2013 The Obama administration is considering funding many more police officers in public schools to secure campuses, a leading Democratic senator said, part of a broad gun violence agenda that is likely to include a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips and universal background checks. The school safety [sic] initiative, one of several under consideration, would make federal dollars available to schools that want to hire police officers and install surveillance equipment, although it is not nearly as far-ranging as the National Rifle Association's proposal for armed guards in every U.S. school.

Japan seeks to reverse commitment to phase out nuclear power

Japan seeks to reverse commitment to phase out nuclear power 11 Jan 2013 Almost two years after the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi power plant sent shockwaves around the world, Japan's government is attempting to resell the nuclear dream to a traumatised public. The previous centre-left government pledged last year to phase out all of the country's 50 working reactors by 2040. But the return to office last month of the conservative Liberal Democratic party (LDP) under Shinzo Abe effectively killed off the idea of a non-nuclear Japan. It was no coincidence that within days of the LDP victory, Tepco, the firm that operates Fukushima Daiichi, saw a dramatic rise in its share price -- but nowhere near the level it was before the accident.

Among those targeted by the bombs were the editor of the semi-official Athens News Agency and two presenters from the private television channel Mega.

US nuclear attack submarine strikes fishing vessel in Gulf 11 Jan 2013 A nuclear-powered American attack submarine hit a fishing trawler after it passed through the Strait of Hormuz into the Persian Gulf on Thursday, a Navy official said. No one was injured in the incident, which occurred at 5 a.m. local time (9 p.m. ET Wednesday), but the top of the submarine's periscope was shorn off and the sub was forced to use a second periscope, the official said. The reactor on the nuclear-powered USS Jacksonville was not affected. "There was no damage to the propulsion plant systems and there is no concern regarding watertight integrity," the Navy's Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet said in a statement.
