Ask Congress to Fund the Fight to Save Bats

April 4, 2012 by legitgov

Ask Congress to Fund the Fight to Save Bats 03 Apr 2012 It's another disastrous year for North American bats: White-nose syndrome, the bat-killing fungal disease that has been sweeping the country, has reached Alabama and Missouri. It continues to spread throughout the heartland, the core range of two endangered bat species. Nearly 7 million bats have died since the white-nose outbreak in 2006. The bats' best champions in Congress, Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), have requested $8.5 million for white-nose syndrome research and management. [Hopefully, the 8.5 million can be 'found,' since USociopaths have billions to spend on multiple illegal wars and occupations for Exxon Mobil and Blackwater.]

April 3, 2012 by legitgov

Colorado farms planning for dry spell losing auction bids for water to fracking projects 03 Apr 2012 Front Range farmers bidding for water to grow crops through the coming hot summer and possible drought face new competition from oil and gas drillers. At Colorado's premier auction for unallocated water this spring, companies that provide water for hydraulic fracturing at well sites were top bidders on supplies once claimed exclusively by farmers. The prospect of tussling with energy industry giants over water leaves some farmers and environmentalists uneasy. [Start reading.]

April 3, 2012 by legitgov

Supreme Court Ruling Allows Strip-Searches for Any Arrest 03 Apr 2012 The Supreme Court on Monday ruled by a 5-to-4 vote that officials may strip-search people arrested for any offense, however minor, before admitting them to jails even if the officials have no reason to suspect the presence of contraband. The procedures endorsed by the majority are forbidden by statute in at least 10 states and are at odds with the policies of federal authorities. According to a supporting brief filed by the American Bar Association, international human rights treaties also ban the procedures.

FBI, NYPD Investigate New Terror Threat Graphic Mentioning NYC --Posting warns of al-Qaida's return to New York City 02 Apr 2012 A computer graphic warning that al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] will return soon to New York City has been posted on an internet site linked to the terror organization, and the NYPD and FBI say they are investigating. The graphic was posted on a radical overseas website and shows the city skyline and reads: "Al Qaeda Coming Soon Again in New York." NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said the graphic appeared on a site that has hosted al-Qaida material before and is what the NYPD Intelligence Division refers to as a Category 1 website, meaning it is heavily used by Jihadi and al-Qaida adherents [and its domain registration likely traces to Langley, VA].

Appeals court upholds California affirmative action ban 02 Apr 2012 A U.S. appeals court upheld California's ban on the use of affirmative action in university admissions on Monday, reaffirming that public schools cannot base admission on race, gender or ethnicity. The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholding so-called Proposition 209 comes as affirmative action resurfaces as a live issue at the top of the U.S. legal system. Proposition 209, passed by voters over 15 years ago, has prompted fierce debate for years in California.

Supreme Court upholds jail strip searches, including for minor offenses

April 3, 2012 by legitgov

Supreme Court upholds jail strip searches, including for minor offenses --Breyer: Decision would legitimize searches conducted to harass or humiliate people for their political views 02 Apr 2012 The Supreme Court ruled Monday that those arrested for even minor violations may be strip-searched before being admitted to jail, saying safety concerns outweigh personal privacy rights. The court's conservatives ruled against a New Jersey man who was strip-searched after being mistakenly arrested on an outstanding warrant. The Supreme Court's 5 to 4 decision continued a trend that began after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks of giving jailers more leeway in searching those picked up even for the most minor offenses, such as expired licenses or noisy mufflers.

Lulzsec Ryan Cleary Again in Jail for breaking his bail conditions

April 3, 2012 by legitgov

Burned by traitor Sabu: Lulzsec Ryan Cleary Again in Jail for breaking his bail conditions 02 Apr 2012 The lawyer for a 19-year-old Briton Ryan Cleary - suspected of links to the hacking group Lulz Security - says her client's back behind bars for breaching his bail conditions. Cleary is accused of being a member of the hacktivist group LulzSec as it carried out a series of attacks on targets including the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency, the CIA, and News International. He had apparently been trading e-mails with Hector Xavier Monsegur, a.k.a. Sabu, the recently outed LulzSec mastermind turned FBI informant. That was a direct violation of his bail agreement, which dictated that Cleary was to have no access to the Internet whatsoever.

Fukushima radiation headed across Pacific Ocean

April 3, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima radiation headed across Pacific Ocean --Cesium radiation hundreds to thousands of times higher than would be expected naturally 02 Apr 2012 Radioactive material from the Fukushima nuclear disaster has been found in tiny sea creatures and ocean water some 186 miles (300 kilometers) off the coast of Japan, revealing the extent of the release and the direction pollutants might take in a future environmental disaster. In some places, the researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) discovered cesium radiation hundreds to thousands of times higher than would be expected naturally, with ocean eddies and larger currents both guiding the "radioactive debris" and concentrating it.

War critic who demands immediate Afghanistan withdrawal wins surprise return to UK Parliament

War critic who demands immediate Afghanistan withdrawal wins surprise return to UK Parliament 30 Mar 2012 An outspoken critic of the war in Afghanistan claimed Friday that public anger over the conflict propelled him to a surprise victory in a special election for a seat in Britain's House of Commons. George Galloway, a leftist political maverick, won the Bradford West seat in northern England - a district that includes a large Muslim community - with a majority of more than 10,000 votes, as support for the country's mainstream lawmakers crumbled. "They have to stop supporting illegal, bloody, costly foreign wars," Galloway said, as the result was announced.

U.S. Taxpayers to Equip and Pay 'Rebels' in Syria

April 2, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Taxpayers to Equip and Pay 'Rebels' in Syria 02 Apr 2012 The United States and dozens of other countries moved closer on Sunday to direct intervention in the fighting in Syria, with Arab nations pledging $100 million to pay opposition fighters and the Obama administration agreeing to send communications equipment to help rebels mercenaries organize and evade Syria's military, according to participants gathered here. Molham al-Drobi, a member of the Syrian National Council, said that the opposition had pledges of... $100 million in salaries over three months for the fighters inside Syria. Some money was already flowing to the fighters, he said, including $500,000 last week through "a mechanism that I cannot disclose now." [Oh, I thought there was a *deficit?* Too bad there's no money for single-payer healthcare, since the sociopaths running the US government would rather pay for Israel's weapons and hire terrorists to overthrow another Middle East country for Exxon Mobil.]

Radiation affecting Japan's famous delicacies

April 2, 2012 by legitgov

Radiation affecting Japan's famous delicacies 01 Apr 2012 On Sunday, Japan reopened parts of the no-go zone around the Fukushima nuclear plant, but is still banning people from staying overnight. The government is also warning people to avoid hundreds of locally-produced foods that exceed safe radiation limits. CBS News reports that the ban is affecting one of the country's best-known foods. With Fukushima's forests heavily contaminated by radiation, the oak he needs to raise shiitake mushrooms is gone. Shiitake, which tend to absorb radioactive cesium now in the soil, are especially shunned.

Biosecurity advisory board reverses decision on 'engineered bird flu' papers

April 2, 2012 by legitgov

USociopaths are trying to get a bird flu pandemic party started: Biosecurity advisory board reverses decision on 'engineered bird flu' papers --New surveillance shows that 'wild' H5N1 viruses circulating in chicken flocks overseas contain mutations similar to ones in the lab-engineered strains. 30 Mar 2012 Two scientific papers that describe experiments with a virulent and contagious bird flu virus should be published in uncensored form, a committee of scientists advising the federal government said Friday. That recommendation by the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity reverses one the committee made in January, when it asked two journals, Science and Nature, to hold off publishing studies about the lab-engineered strains of the H5N1 influenza virus.

Confirmed: CIA secret prison in Poland

Confirmed: CIA secret prison in Poland 02 Apr 2012 Another CIA-run interrogation 'black site' has been exposed after the confessions of top-ranking Polish officials blew the lid on the dirtiest secret in Eastern Europe. The former head of Poland's intelligence service secret Zbigniew Siemiatkowski has been charged with taking part in establishing a secret prison for the CIA in a remote part of the country. Allegedly, foreign prisoners in the detention center were tortured in connection with America's global war on terror. Rumors about Poland hosting a CIA-run prison had circulated for years, though the country's authorities dismissed them as absurd.

Judge says groups can't shield campaign donors

Judge says groups can't shield campaign donors 31 Mar 2012 The Federal Election Commission overstepped its bounds in allowing groups that fund certain election ads to keep their financiers anonymous, a federal judge has ruled. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson's ruling Friday could pave the way to requiring groups that spend money on electioneering communications - ads that don't expressly advocate for or against a candidate running for federal office - to disclose their donors. The FEC ruled in 2007 that corporations and nonprofits did not have to reveal the identities of those who financed such ads.

Goldman Sachs sells 16 per cent stake in website linked to sex trafficking 01 Apr 2012 A private equity fund run by Goldman Sachs Group Inc has agreed to sell its stake in a media company believed to be behind a sex trafficking forum connected to its management, a company spokesman said today. GS Capital Partners III on Friday signed a deal to sell its 16 per cent stake in Village Voice Media, which owns the website, called Backpage.com. The fund began negotiations with Village Voice Media in March, after deciding in 2010 that it had grown 'uncomfortable with the direction of the company,' and Goldman's inability to influence its operations, said Andrea Raphael, a Goldman Sachs spokesman.

With GPS Data Out, Feds Eye Warrantless Cell Phone Surveillance

April 2, 2012 by legitgov

With GPS Data Out, Feds Eye Warrantless Cell Phone Surveillance 31 Mar 2012 Prosecutors are shifting their focus to warrantless cell-tower locational tracking of suspects in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that law enforcement should acquire probable-cause warrants from judges to affix GPS devices to vehicles and monitor their every move, according to court records. The change of strategy comes in the case the justices decided in January, when it reversed the life sentence of a District of Columbia area drug dealer, Antoine Jones, who was the subject of 28 days of warrantless GPS surveillance via a device the FBI secretly attached to his vehicle without a warrant. In the wake of Jones' decision, the FBI has pulled the plug on 3,000 GPS tracking devices.

Trayvon Martin case 911 call: Screams not George Zimmerman's, 2 experts say

April 1, 2012 by legitgov

Trayvon Martin case 911 call: Screams not George Zimmerman's, 2 experts say 01 Apr 2012 The voice heard crying for help on a 911 call just before Trayvon Martin was shot to death was not that of George Zimmerman, according to two forensic voice identification experts, one of whom told MSNBC on Sunday that he believes the evidence is strong enough to use in court. "The tests concluded that it's not the voice of Mr. Zimmerman," Tom Owen, of Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, told MSNBC. Asked if he thought such tests would be admissible in court, Owen said "yes" and noted he had recently used similar testing in testimony at a Connecticut murder case that involved 911 call.

Trayvon Martin shooting: It's not George Zimmerman crying for help on 911 recording, 2 experts say 31 Mar 2012 Who was heard crying for help on a 911 call in the moments before Trayvon Martin was shot? A leading expert in the field of forensic voice identification sought to answer that question by analyzing the recordings for the Orlando Sentinel. His result: It was not George Zimmerman who called for help. Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman. Another expert contacted by the Sentinel, utilizing different techniques, came to the same conclusion.

The letter, which was published late last week in the British newspaper the Guardian, was signed by such leading cultural figures as film director Mike Leigh, actress Emma Thompson and actor-director Richard Wilson.

April 1, 2012 by legitgov

Man whose WMD lies led to over 100,000 deaths confesses all 01 Apr 2012 A man [Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi] whose lies helped to make the case for invading Iraq – starting a nine-year war costing more than 100,000 1,000,000 lives and hundreds of billions of pounds – will come clean in his first British television interview tomorrow. "Curveball", the Iraqi defector who fabricated claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, smiles as he confirms how he made the whole thing up...  When it is put to him "we went to war in Iraq on a lie. And that lie was your lie", he simply replies: "Yes." US officials "sexed up" Mr Janabi's drawings of mobile biological weapons labs to make them more presentable, admits Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, General Powell's former chief of staff. "I brought the White House team in to do the graphics," he says, adding how "intelligence was being worked to fit around the policy".

Police Are Using Phone Tracking as a Routine Tool

April 1, 2012 by legitgov

Police Are Using Phone Tracking as a Routine Tool 01 Apr 2012 Law enforcement tracking of cellphones, once the province mainly of federal agents, has become a powerful and widely used surveillance tool for local police officials, with hundreds of departments, large and small, often using it aggressively with little or no court oversight, documents show. While many departments require warrants to use phone tracking in nonemergencies, others claim broad discretion to get the records on their own, according to 5,500 pages of internal records obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union from 205 police departments nationwide. The internal documents, which were provided to The New York Times, open a window into a cloak-and-dagger practice that police officials are wary about discussing publicly.

"We want arrests, shot in the chest," the protesters chanted at the demonstration in Sanford.

Trayvon lawyers want U.S. to review prosecutor's role 01 Apr 2012 Attorneys for the family of slain black teenager Trayvon Martin are asking the U.S. Justice Department to review reports that prosecutors undermined a police investigation of shooter George Zimmerman by overruling a detective who wanted to charge him.

Lawyers for Martin's family are preparing a formal request that the federal government also investigate the specific report that state attorney prosecutors interfered with a homicide detective who wanted to charge Zimmerman with manslaughter.
