We're going to need a full-blown insurgency to put an end to these eco-terrorists: BP pipeline sprays 'oily mist' over 33 acres of Alaskan tundra 01 May 2014 Alaska state officials confirmed Wednesday that an oily mist sprung from a compromised oil pipeline and sprayed into the wind without stopping for at least two hours, covering 33 acres of the frozen snow field in the oil well's vicinity. The discovery was at the BP-owned Prudhoe oil field on Alaska's North Slope, the northernmost region of the state where a number of profitable oil fields sit beneath the tundra. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) revealed that BP officials found the mist during a routine inspection on Monday.

Barrett Brown lawyer: US tried to 'kill a fly with a sledgehammer'

Barrett Brown lawyer: US tried to 'kill a fly with a sledgehammer' 28 Apr 2014 The lawyer for Barrett Brown, the activist-journalist in jail in Texas on charges related to his involvement with computer hackers, has called for an overhaul in the way technology cases are handled by the criminal justice system to counteract potential abuses and excessive prosecutorial aggression on the part of the US government. In his first substantive comments since a gagging order on Brown and his legal team was lifted last week, Ahmed Ghappour told the Guardian that in his opinion, the US government had tried to "kill a fly with a sledgehammer". He accused prosecutors of imposing overly broad charges that had put unnecessary strain on the system, had profound personal implications for Brown who has been in custody for more than 500 days, and sent a chill across public debate.

Supreme Court rejects hearing on military indefinite detention case

Supreme Court rejects hearing on military indefinite detention case 28 Apr 2014 The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed a victory to President Barack Obama's administration by declining to hear a challenge to a law that allows the U.S. military to indefinitely detain people believed to have helped al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] or the Taliban. The high court left intact a July 2013 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision that journalists and others who said they could be detained under the law, did not have standing to sue. The provision in question is part of the National Defense Authorization Act, which the U.S. Congress passes annually to authorize programs of the Defense Department.

It is the biggest deployment of military aircraft to Romania from another NATO member since the Ukraine crisis broke out. "There is a lot of uncertainty about what we're going to be doing over there," Lieutenant-General Yvan Blondin said at a press conference with Defense Minister Rob Nicholson in Bagotville, where the CF-18 Hornets are based. [LOL! There usually is, when the US and NATO are involved.]

Snowden leaks mean terrorists are changing tactics to slip under the radar, say British secret services

UK trolling to blame Edward Snowden for their next false flag? Snowden leaks mean terrorists are changing tactics to slip under the radar, say British secret services --Stephen Phipson said terrorists were given 'full sight' of GCHQ tradecraft 29 Apr 2014 Terrorists are changing tactics to slip under the radar after being given 'full sight' of GCHQ tradecraft by whistleblower Edward Snowden, a counter-terrorism director warned today. Stephen Phipson, one of the Government's most senior counter-terrorism officials, said the surveillance leaks published in the Guardian newspaper had led to a 'substantial reduction' in intelligence on suspects as they have changed their methods of communication. The director at the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT) said the release of information from the Snowden documents had given extremists 'full sight' of tools and techniques used by the British listening station GCHQ, which had had a 'severe' effect on spying operations.

Federal judge strikes down Wisconsin voter ID law

Federal judge strikes down Wisconsin voter ID law 29 Apr 2014 A federal judge struck down Wisconsin's voter identification law Tuesday, declaring that a requirement that voters show a state-issued photo ID at the polls imposes an unfair burden on poor and minority voters. U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman sided with opponents of the law, who argued that low-income and minority voters aren't as likely to have photo IDs or the documents needed to get them. Adelman said the law violated the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection. He also said the law appeared too flawed to fix with legislative amendments.

Federal Judge Rejects Wisconsin's Voter ID Law

Federal Judge Rejects Wisconsin's Voter ID Law 29 Apr 2014 A federal judge has ruled against Wisconsin's Voter ID law on Tuesday, finding that the rule places "a unique and heightened burden on those who must obtain an ID if they wish to continue voting in Wisconsin," a population that is disproportionately composed of poor and minority voters. U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman wrote in her decision that the law violates the constitution's equal protection provisions. Wisconsin's law, put on the books by Republican lawmakers in the state, is part of a wider push by conservatives to enact restrictions on voters in the name of combating 'voter fraud' [while the GOP steals entire elections. Think Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004.]

Putin: Washington behind Ukraine events all along, though flying low

Putin: Washington behind Ukraine events all along, though flying low 30 Apr 2014 The US has been behind the Ukrainian crisis from the beginning, but was initially flying low, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. He added that if sanctions continue, Russia will have to reconsider who has access to key sectors of its economy. "I think what is happening now shows us who really was mastering the process from the beginning. But in the beginning, the United States preferred to remain in the shadow," Putin said, as quoted by RIA Novosti...The "Maidan cookies" policy paves the way to a broader crisis, Putin warned, referring to US officials showing up in central Kiev and encouraging protesters during demonstrations.

Chris Christie's latest excuse for Sandy delays is pure chutzpah

Chris Christie's latest excuse for Sandy delays is pure chutzpah (Star-Ledger Editorial Board) 29 Apr 2014 Gov. Chris Christie has given a number of shifting excuses for the delays in distributing Hurricane Sandy aid. But the latest one has a special gall: After months spent blaming the federal government, Christie now says the process was also slowed because he was so busy helping the poor... This is the same governor who vetoed a minimum wage increase, effectively hiked taxes on the working poor by scaling back the earned-income tax credit and tried to raid huge sums of money intended for affordable housing. Christie hasn't exactly been a champion of the underprivileged.

Last Chance: Save the Greater Sage-Grouse

Last Chance: Save the Greater Sage-Grouse 29 Apr 2014 The greater sage-grouse — a bird known for its fascinating mating dance -- lives its entire life in the wide open spaces of the American West, stretching from the Dakotas to California...The bird's population has plummeted during the last century, with more than half of its sagebrush habitat lost or degraded due in large part to unbalanced management of our Western lands. However, there is hope: We have the opportunity to save the sage-grouse, and your voice is crucial to ensuring responsible protections for the bird and its habitat. Please urge President Obama and other decision-makers to protect the remaining healthy sagebrush habitat across our public lands for the greater sage-grouse and other wildlife that make their home in these remarkable places.

Snowden Retained Expert in Espionage Act Defense

Snowden Retained Expert in Espionage Act Defense 29 Apr 2014 Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who provided journalists a trove of classified documents, retained a well-known Washington defense lawyer last summer in hopes of reaching a plea deal with federal prosecutors that would allow him to return to the United States and spare him significant prison time. The lawyer, according to people familiar with the investigation, is Plato Cacheris, who has represented defendants in some of the highest-profile cases involving Espionage Act charges, including the convicted spies Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen and the convicted leaker Lawrence Franklin. Mr. Snowden, who now lives in Moscow, where he received temporary asylum, was charged last year with multiple violations of the Espionage Act.

There have even been instances when mothers were separated from their dependent calves by careless visitors. Please urge FWS to step up protections of the vulnerable Florida manatee population!

CIA's Afghan 'torturer-in-chief' lives in two-story house in Southern California --'How he managed to land in the United States remains murky.' 28 Apr 2014 In Afghanistan, his presence was enough to cause prisoners to tremble.

Cesium levels triple in Oregon tuna following Fukushima nuclear meltdowns

Cesium levels triple in Oregon tuna following Fukushima nuclear meltdowns 28 Apr 2014 Radiation in some albacore tuna caught off the Oregon coast tripled after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown[s] in Japan, a new study from Oregon State University shows.

The radioactive plume is expected to reach the West Coast this month. Federal agencies aren't testing for it. [Now, why is THAT?]

MH370: Evidence of False Flag

MH370: Evidence of False Flag 26 Apr 2014 In October 2013 a Ft. Lauderdale, Florida-based company, GA Telesis ("GAT"), acquired a 15-year-old Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 ("GAT's Malaysian 777") from Kuwaiti-based ALAFCO Leasing (lessor to Malaysian Airlines). GAT's Malaysian 777 was flown to the relatively small and seasonal Tarbes Lourdes Airport in France's Pyrenees mountains around October 4, 2013. This movement of the plane coincidently occurred a week after President Obama announced that the US would seek diplomatic solutions with Iran regarding its nuclear program. While the plane was at Tarbes Lourdes, the Malaysian Airlines name on the plane was apparently painted over, although the signatory red and blue stripes on the fuselage remained...
