Snowden unlikely to 'man up' in face of Espionage Act, legal adviser says

Snowden unlikely to 'man up' in face of Espionage Act, legal adviser says 28 May 2014 An adviser to Edward Snowden said on Wednesday that an unfair legal landscape made it unlikely that the NSA whistleblower would take US secretary of state John Kerry up on his invitation to "man up" and return to the United States. In a television appearance on Wednesday morning, Kerry said that if Snowden were a "patriot", he would return to the United States from Russia to face criminal charges. Snowden was charged last June with three felonies under the 1917 Espionage Act. "This is a man who has betrayed his country," Kerry told CBS News. "He should man up and come back to the US."

Deli Mart cleaned up blood at the crime scene --Early reports: Two suspects were involved Posted by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 29 May 2014 Part of the deadly Santa Barbara rampage took place at the I.V. Deli Mart in Isla Vista: 'People inside an Isla Vista deli dropped to the floor and desperately tried to hide from the gunman in Friday's deadly rampage. Security camera video shows the terrifying moments when customers first hear gunshots, then run for cover inside the I.V. Deli Mart. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office says Elliot Rodger killed Christopher Michaels-Martinez at that store.' [See: Surveillance video shows frantic moments inside I.V. Deli Mart,' 25 May 2014.] In the aftermath of the killings, workers at the deli were actually seen cleaning up blood at the *crime scene.* Additionally, 'initial reports suggested that two suspects were involved in the shooting.'

Israel Agrees to Spend Half of Pentagon-Provided Iron Dome Funds in U.S.

Israel Agrees to Spend Half of Pentagon-Provided Iron Dome Funds in U.S. 28 May 2014 The Israeli government has agreed to spend more than half the funds the Pentagon provides for its Iron Dome system in the U.S., bolstering the political appeal of the missile-defense system in America. Funds going to U.S. contractors for components of the Israeli-built, Pentagon-funded system will jump to 30 percent this year and 55 percent next year from 3 percent previously, according to a U.S. Missile Defense Agency report to Congress obtained by Bloomberg News. That amounts to at least $97 million of $176 million requested by the Defense Department for the coming fiscal year.

Say again, Senator, ACA unKynected?

Say again, Senator, ACA unKynected? 27 May 2014 Sen. Mitch McConnell has some explaining to do. What in the world did he mean last week when he told reporters that repeal of the Affordable Care Act - "root and branch," as he has demanded many times - is "unconnected" to the future of Kynect, Kentucky's health insurance exchange? Asked specifically if Kynect should be dismantled, McConnell said: "I think that's unconnected to my comments about the overall question." Huh? Nothing could be more connected - or should be more important to Kentucky's senior senator - than the fates of the more than 400,000 Kentuckians who are getting health insurance, many for the first time, and the federal Affordable Care Act, which is making that possible.

GOP Proposal Would End Door-to-Door Postal Service Delivery

GOP Proposal Would End Door-to-Door Postal Service Delivery 27 May 2014 Neighbors in Nashville are reacting to news that a bill in congress could knock mail carriers off their feet. In a move to 'save' the U.S. Postal Service up to $2 billion a year [even though there's never-ending *billions* for the US to intervene in Afghanistan, Ukraine, Syria, etc. and to pay for Israel's Iron Dome.] congress is looking at a bill that could eliminate most door to door mail deliveries by mail carriers on foot. Many of those deliveries would be converted to apartment-style grouped mailboxes instead. Those who want their door to door service to continue would have to pay for it themselves. [*Or,* US citizens, fed up with this INSANITY could rise up and end it. Start reading.]

US Special Forces May Soon Be Training Syrian 'Rebels' --Obama weighing sending American troops to Jordan to participate in 'training' 28 May 2014 In an open move that would significantly boost U.S. support to Syrian 'rebels' seeking military help in their quest to oust President Bashar Assad, the White House may soon sign off on a project to train and equip 'moderate forces.'

Kerry: US to start $5 billion fund to help other countries fight terrorism

Kerry: US to start $5 billion fund to help other countries fight terrorism 28 May 2014 Secretary of State John Kerry says the United States will begin a $5 billion "terrorism partnership fund" to help other countries push back against radical extremists. Kerry says President Barack Obama will announce the fund during his commencement speech Wednesday at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. [Apparently, 'deficits don't matter' when it comes to funding death squads all over the world who kill those who dare to rise up against corporate locusts who want to seize nations' water and oil. In truth, the *actual* terrorists against whom the whole planet needs to unite and fight are the US government, Monsanto, TEPCO, BP, Exxon Mobil, etc.]

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden: 'I was trained as a spy' 27 May 2014 Former US spy agency contractor Edward Snowden, who leaked details of massive US intelligence-gathering programs, said in a US TV interview he "was trained as a spy" and had worked undercover overseas for US government agencies.

Elliot Rodger added to the list of mass shooting perpetrators with no criminal history

Elliot Rodger added to the list of mass shooting perpetrators with no criminal history 26 May 2014 Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes. Sandy Hook school attacker Adam Lanza. And now Elliot Rodger. All were young loners with no criminal history who went on shooting sprees false flags, leaving devastated families in their wake. Mass murderers tend to have a history of pent-up frustration and failures, are socially isolated and vengeful, blaming others for their unhappiness, experts say. [Yes, 'blaming others' - especially their ONR, CIA or FBI handlers.] Since mass killings are rare, scholars say there's no way to predict who has deadly intentions, let alone who will reach a breaking point and take action.
