5.0 earthquake strikes not far from Fukushima 11 Oct 2013 A 5.0-magnitude earthquake has struck near the east coast of Honshu in Japan not far from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant. The tremor hit some 18 kilometers southeast of the city of Hitachi and 125 kilometers northeast of Tokyo, at a depth of about 50 kilometers. The epicenter is some 150 kilometers from the Fukushima nuclear power plant. On Wednesday, the radiation at the crippled facility reached 1,200 becquerels per liter, which is the highest indication recorded since late 2011.

20th Air Force commander relieved of command 11 Oct 2013 Lt. Gen. James Kowalski, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command, relieved Maj. Gen. Michael Carey from command of 20th Air Force today due to a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership and judgment. Kowalski made his decision based on information from an Inspector General investigation into Carey's behavior during a temporary duty assignment. AFGSC vice commander Maj. Gen. Jack Weinstein has been named the interim 20th AF commander. Headquartered at F. E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo., 20th AF is responsible for the nation's three intercontinental ballistic missile wings.

Information sought after federally protected bird shot in Capitola

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

Information sought after federally protected bird shot in Capitola 11 Oct 2013 (CA) Officials are seeking information on the shooting of an elegant tern, a migratory seabird protected by federal law and found recently in Capitola. The bird was located by a Capitola police officer and transferred to a local wildlife group, Native Animal Rescue, which has experience nurturing birds back to health. It has been moved to Fairfield-based International Bird Rescue. "These are beautiful creatures and there's absolutely no reason to do something like this," said Jay Holcomb, director of International Bird Rescue. "Anybody that does this and gets caught should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. It's ridiculous." [So sad that animals can't *shoot first.*]

Iraq Hangings 'Obscene', Says United Nations

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

Iraq Hangings 'Obscene', Says United Nations --Iraq also executed 23 people during two days in September, 20 of them convicted on 'terrorism' charges 11 Oct 2013 The United Nations has condemned the "obscene" execution of 42 people in Iraq this week, saying the country's justice system is too flawed to use the death penalty. Iraq's justice ministry claimed those hanged on Wednesday and Thursday had been convicted of terrorism charges. But Rupert Colville, the UN human rights spokesman, said: "...Large-scale executions of the sort that have been carried out on a number of occasions over the past two years in Iraq are not only obscene and inhuman, they are most probably in contravention of international law." [Saddam Hussein: *Clearly,* the better deal.]

Iraq lands first refinery investor

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

Mission accomplished! Iraq lands first refinery investor 11 Oct 2013 The Iraqi Oil Ministry has signed a "binding MoU" with Switzerland-based Satarem to build southern Iraq's first new, large-scale refinery in 30 years. The 150,000 barrel per day (bpd) refinery in Missan province, to be located near the capital, Amara, is to be contracted under a 50-year, Build-Own-Operate (BOO) model that will see Satarem spend nearly $6 billion and, by 2018, produce fuels that can either be sold on the domestic market or exported.

Forensics of the Malala False Flag Operation

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

Forensics of the Malala False Flag Operation 23 Oct 2012 ...Just two days after a protest against U.S. drone strikes killing innocent civilians in Pakistan, along comes the fake Taliban to claim credit for shooting little innocent Malala [Yousafzai] in cold blood. The fake Taliban spokesman in Pakistan, Ehsanullah Ehsan, took credit for the attack on the schoolgirl by a "phone call" claiming they did it because she liked Barack Obama and because she supported "Western Ideas". This, by the way, is the same fake Taliban spokesman who told the drone protesters to basically "f*ck off" after the protest was turned back. This is the same Ehsanullah Ehsan who took credit for a double bombing in 2011 claiming it was in response to the killing of bin Laden. That confession was also by phone from an "undisclosed location." ...Then there is a picture of Malala with bandage on the RIGHT side of her forehead and another picture of Malala with a bandage on her LEFT. There is one picture of her on the stretcher with RED clothes and another with a BLUE dress. Now we have pictures of her recovering in a hospital in UK with NO scar on her forehead or any other sign to show that she had been shot in the forehead. So not shot in the neck, nor in the forehead, where was she shot? Also, banners and posters printed in English, were ready in such a short time, within 24 hours in protest against the Malala attack and were displayed in protest demonstrations the next day. Were they prepared beforehand?

'Weapons Watchdog Wins Nobel Peace Prize'

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

'Weapons Watchdog Wins Nobel Peace Prize' 11 Oct 2013 A global chemical weapons watchdog has won this year's Nobel Peace Prize, according to television reports in Norway. The broadcaster NRK says it has learnt the award will go to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The OPCW, which is based in the Hague, was founded in 1997 to implement the Chemical Weapons Convention signed on January 13, 1993. [*So glad* 'CIA Project Malala' did not win.]

C.I.A. Warning on Snowden in '09 Said to Slip Through the Cracks

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

C.I.A. Warning on Snowden in '09 Said to Slip Through the Cracks 11 Oct 2013 Just as Edward J. Snowden was preparing to leave Geneva and a job as a C.I.A. technician in 2009, his supervisor wrote a derogatory report in his personnel file, noting a distinct change in the young man’s behavior and work habits, as well as a troubling suspicion. The C.I.A. suspected that Mr. Snowden was trying to break into classified computer files to which he was not authorized to have access, and decided to send him home, according to two senior American officials. But the red flags went unheeded. Mr. Snowden left the C.I.A. to become a contractor for the National Security Agency, and four years later he leaked thousands of classified documents.

Snowden honored by U.S. whistleblowers in Moscow

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

Snowden honored by U.S. whistleblowers in Moscow 10 Oct 2013 On Thursday, four whistleblower advocates from the United States met with Edward Snowden to give him an award and his father arrived in Moscow for the first time since his son received asylum. The four activists, who said they met Snowden on Wednesday, gave him an award for truth-telling on behalf of Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence, an organization of former national security officials. They ridiculed U.S. government assertions that Snowden has caused grave damage to national security. The Sam Adams award was announced in July but presented in person Wednesday.

Western-backed Syrian 'rebels' accused of killing hundreds of civilians

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

US tax dollars at work: Western-backed Syrian 'rebels' accused of killing hundreds of civilians 11 Oct 2013 Syrian 'rebels' killed at least 190 civilians and took more than 200 hostage during an offensive in Latakia province in August, Human Rights Watch said on Friday, in what it calls the first evidence of crimes against humanity by opposition forces. HRW said many of the dead had been executed by militant groups, some linked to al-Qaida [al-CIAduh], who overran army positions at dawn on 4 August and then moved into 10 villages nearby where members of President Bashar al-Assad's Alawite sect lived. In its first government-sanctioned trip into Syria during the two-and-a-half year conflict, New York-based HRW has documented a series of sectarian mass killings by Assad's foes during a broader campaign in which Western-backed rebels took part. In some cases, entire families were executed or gunned down as they fled, according to the HRW report You Can Still See Their Blood.

Tesoro oil spill: over 20,000 barrels seep into North Dakota wheat field

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

Tesoro oil spill: over 20,000 barrels seep into North Dakota wheat field 10 Oct 2013 More than 20,000 barrels of crude oil have spewed out of a Tesoro oil pipeline in a wheat field in northwestern North Dakota, the state health department said Thursday. State environmental geologist Kris Roberts said the 20,600-barrel spill, among the largest recorded in the state, was discovered on 29 September by a farmer harvesting wheat about nine miles south of Tioga. "The farmer was harvesting his wheat and started smelling oil," Roberts said.

Republican Party's Rating Plummets to 'Record Low'

October 11, 2013 by legitgov

Republican Party's Rating Plummets to 'Record Low' 10 Oct 2013 There may be plenty of blame to go around for the nine-day government shutdown, but the Republican brand is taking the harder hit in public opinion. Just 28 percent of Americans have a favorable impression of the Republican Party, down 10 percentage points from last month, according to a Gallup poll. The polling firm called it a "record low," noting that "this is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992."

Iraq Hangs 42 Convicted on Terrorism Charges

Iraq Hangs 42 Convicted on Terrorism Charges --Verdicts based on testimony obtained by torture, coercion 10 Oct 2013 Iraq has hanged 42 prisoners convicted of terrorism-related charges, including a woman, the Justice Ministry said Thursday, in Baghdad's latest use of capital punishment despite international appeals to have it abolished. With violence mounting since April, the government defends the death penalty as a way to face down insurgents bent to destabilize the country. More than 5,000 people have been killed over the past six months, including nearly 200 so far in October. Human rights groups have questioned trial procedures in Iraqi courts, alleging that some verdicts are based on testimony obtained by torture or forced statements against the accused. [Hopefully, a well-organized insurgency will rise up and overthrow the US-installed corporate dictatorship in Iraq -- and here, too. --LRP]

Obama Rejects Republican Proposal for Short-Term Debt Limit 'Plan'

October 10, 2013 by legitgov

Obama Rejects Republican Proposal for Short-Term Debt Limit 'Plan' 10 Oct 2013 President Obama on Thursday rejected a proposal from politically besieged House Republican leaders to extend the nation's borrowing authority for six weeks because it would not also reopen the government. Yet both parties saw it as the first break in Republicans' brinkmanship and a step toward a fiscal truce. Twenty Republicans, led by Speaker John A. Boehner, went to the White House at Mr. Obama's invitation [of course, lol] after a day of fine-tuning their offer to increase the Treasury Department's authority to borrow money to pay existing obligations through Nov. 22. In exchange, they sought the president's commitment to negotiate a deal for long-term deficit reduction and a tax overhaul slashing 'entitlements' and giving more tax breaks to corporations, billionaires and millionaires.

No. 2 Pentagon official to step down --Carter was chosen to lead reviews of Pentagon's budget and strategy and security in light of last month's shootings at Washington Navy Yard 10 Oct 2013 The Pentagon's No. 2 official announced Thursday that he will leave office on Dec. 4, capping a career with several top Defense Department posts except the top job. Ashton Carter, who spearheaded efforts in the height of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to speed needed gear to troops, had been considered a contender earlier this year for Defense secretary. In his resignation letter, Carter told Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that he had long planned to leave in December.

Protesters rising to new heights against Trans-Pacific Partnership

October 10, 2013 by legitgov

Protesters rising to new heights against Trans-Pacific Partnership 26 Sep 2013 In terms of size, the protest Monday against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a huge 'trade agreement' being negotiated at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in Washington, was no big deal. Eight "construction workers" in blue coveralls and "Stop the TPP" yellow hard hats somehow made their way up an unsecured scaffolding -- the building is undergoing some exterior work -- to the top, where they unfurled a 10-by-30-foot banner condemning the proposed 'treaty' as a corporate giveaway. Then five of the eight "workers" moved onto a lower balcony -- on the same floor as U.S. Trade Rep Mike Froman’s office -- and hung two more banners.

10 News Investigators find memo warning about terrorist 'dry-runs' on airplanes 10 Oct 2013 The 10 News Investigators have obtained an internal memo that details a frightening incident that brings back memories of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks [inside job]. According to Wolf Koch, who flies Boeing 767s for Delta Airlines and is the Aviation Security Committee Chairman for the Air Line Pilots Association International, many other flight crews are concerned the planning may already be underway. A memo obtained by the 10 News investigators from the union that represents pilots for US Airways says that "there have been several cases recently throughout the (airline) industry of what appear to be probes, or dry-runs, to test our procedures and reaction to an in flight threat."

NRC furloughs all but 300 of its 3,900 workers 09 Oct 2013 Another government agency is furloughing workers as a result of the government shutdown, but officials promised it would not affect public safety. Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials said Wednesday that as of today, the agency will be operating at limited power, furloughing all but 300 of its 3,900 workers. Among the other NRC entities that will be affected, Sheehan said the NRC website will be static beginning today, except for a portal for notice of urgent safety allegations. Daily reactor status and event reports also will be suspended for the duration of the government shutdown, he said. [Too bad the nuclear reactors aren't shut down.]

How the U.S. Is Interrogating a Qaeda Suspect

October 10, 2013 by legitgov

How the U.S. Is Interrogating a Qaeda Suspect 08 Oct 2013 The United States seized a leader of Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] -- Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, better known as Abu Anas al-Libi -- outside his three-story house in Tripoli, Libya, on Saturday and is reportedly interrogating him in the brig of the Navy ship the San Antonio, in the Mediterranean Sea. Why did the United States put him on a ship? The Obama administration lacks a clear place to house newly captured Qaeda detainees for intelligence interrogations... Were Mr. Ruqai to be brought to a military base on land somewhere, it could raise legal issues with the host government, and were he to be brought onto United States soil, he could arguably have an immediate right to a lawyer. Holding him -- and possibly transporting him -- on an American vessel in international waters avoids potential diplomatic and legal headaches.

States Eliminating Aid for Poor as Shutdown Forces Cuts 10 Oct 2013 States are planning to idle workers and cut services because federal funding is drying up as a partial U.S. government shutdown extends into a 10th day. Michigan is preparing to put as many as 20,000 workers on unpaid leave and eliminate cash and food aid to the poor. North Carolina sent 366 employees home and closed its nutrition aid program to tens of thousands of women and children. Illinois this week may issue furloughs to hundreds of federally funded employees, including workplace safety inspectors.

Va. Democrats sue to stop use of voter 'purge list' 02 Oct 2013 A federal lawsuit filed by the Virginia Democratic Party claims that some voters in the state may be kept from casting a ballot in November after their names were wrongly placed on a list meant to weed out fraud steal the election. The court action names Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R) as defendants and alleges that there were political motivations behind a "purge list" of about 57,000 voters whose names were [allegedly] also found on voter rolls in other states. The lawsuit, which comes as the contentious governor's race enters its last month, contends that the list is inaccurate and that many of those voters are eligible to vote Nov. 5 in Virginia.

U.S. Treasury, Fed planning for possible default: source 09 Oct 2013 U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve officials worried about the growing possibility of a catastrophic default are crafting contingency plans to mitigate the economic fallout if Congress fails to extend America's borrowing authority, a source familiar with the plans said. With just eight days before the Treasury Department says the U.S. will hit its $16.7 trillion borrowing limit, lawmakers and the White House remain far from a deal to extend it. Officials are examining what options might be available to calm financial markets if a U.S. debt payment is missed.

Fidelity aims to shield investors by selling off short-term debt 09 Oct 2013 The nation's largest manager of money-market mutual funds said Wednesday that it no longer holds any U.S. government debt that comes due around the time the nation could hit its borrowing limit. Money-market portfolio managers at Fidelity Investments have been selling off their government-debt holdings over the last couple of weeks, said Nancy Prior, president of Fidelity's Money Market Group. While Fidelity expects the debt-ceiling issue to be resolved, the Boston-based asset manager said it is taking steps to protect investors.

Announcing Fed Nomination, Obama Praises Yellen

October 10, 2013 by legitgov

Announcing Fed Nomination, Obama Praises Yellen 10 Oct 2013 President Obama on Wednesday announced what he called perhaps his most important economic decision, nominating Janet L. Yellen to lead the Federal Reserve system and be his independent co-steward of the economy, calling her "one of the nation's foremost economists and policy makers." Ms. Yellen, 67, would be elevated from the Fed's vice chairwoman to become the first woman to lead the 100-year-old central bank. The Senate is generally expected to confirm her nomination for the four-year term. For the announcement, she joined Mr. Obama in the State Dining Room of the White House, along with the retiring chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, whom the president hailed for helping guide the economy through the worst financial crisis since the Depression [engendered by and for Wall Street].

LePage declares civil emergency because of government shutdown; union calls move a 'power grab' 09 Oct 2013 Gov. Paul LePage (R) on Wednesday declared a state of "civil emergency" in an effort to minimize the financial impact on state operations of the federal government shutdown. With the proclamation, LePage has taken the authority to circumvent state laws or rules if he determines they "prevent, hinder and delay effective management of the emergency." Meanwhile, the largest union representing state workers called the proclamation an "unnecessary power grab." That united front splintered in the wake of LePage’s proclamation, as Maine State Employees Association President Ginette Rivard blasted the governor in a prepared statement, saying the governor was simply seeking to "ignore the laws he finds inconvenient."

Lavabit founder offered to log users' metadata if FBI paid him $3,500 09 Oct 2013 Lavabit's founder offered to work with the American authorities if they would pay him $3,500 for his time, according to documents unsealed by the US courts. Ladar Levison, the founder of the defunct secure email service, made the offer in a letter to an assistant US attorney on 13 July, in an effort to appease the authorities. His site had come under investigation due to its links to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Focusing on the so-called "trap and trace" order which he had been served on 28 June, Levison wrote that "it would be possible to capture the required data ourselves and present it to the FBI."
