Pakistan freed of anti-terrorism obligations; U.S. billions flow instead 05 Oct 2012 The Obama administration has refused for the first time to declare that Pakistan is making progress toward ending alleged military support for Islamic militant groups or preventing 'al Qaida,' the Afghan Taliban or other extremists from staging attacks in Afghanistan. Even so, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has quietly informed Congress that she's waived the legal restrictions that would have blocked some $2 billion in U.S. economic and military aid to Pakistan.

Five extradited terrorist suspects appear in US courts 06 Oct 2012 Abu Hamza al-Masri, a Muslim cleric with alleged ties to al-Qaida [al-CIAduh], and four other terrorist suspects appeared before U.S. judges Saturday just hours after they lost a long battle against their extradition in British courts. Hamza and four other suspected terrorists were flown overnight from an air force base northeast of London after a final ruling on Friday by Britain's High Court that cleared the way for their extradition. Hamza, Khaled Al-Fawwaz and Adel Abdul Bary appeared before Judge Frank Maas in a New York court. The other two - Babar Ahmad and Syed Ahsan - were taken to a court in New Haven, Conn.

Early Voting Is Restored in Ohio

October 7, 2012 by legitgov

Early Voting Is Restored in Ohio 05 Oct 2012 Early voting in Ohio the weekend before the election was restored for all voters on Friday by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, giving President Obama's campaign another victory in its legal battles with Republicans over voting issues. The state's Republican-led administration had imposed a measure that allowed voting that weekend only for members of the military and people living overseas. Democrats and Mr. Obama's campaign had cried foul, arguing that the measure unfairly disenfranchised minorities and others who often wait until the last weekend. Those voters are considered likelier to back the Democratic candidates.

Romney backer Sheldon Adelson drawing fire over plight of Israeli newspapers

October 7, 2012 by legitgov

Romney backer Sheldon Adelson drawing fire over plight of Israeli newspapers 05 Oct 2012 Some of Israel's most influential publications and could soon leave the country with virtually no liberal-leaning printed newspapers. Publishers say... a far bigger influence has been the cost of competing with Israel Hayom, a free-distribution newspaper that American casino magnate Sheldon Adelson founded five years ago. Adelson, whose personal fortune has been estimated at more than $20 billion, is a staunch supporter of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of the right-wing Likud bloc. He's poured millions into the paper, whose often-fawning articles about Netanyahu have earned it the sobriquet "Bibi Press," a reference to the prime minister's nickname. Adelson is a major donor to Mitt Romney's presidential political campaign, and reportedly gave $10 million over the summer to a pro-Romney political action committee, Restore Our Future.

Johan Gray, South African Motorcyclist, Stops Race to Rescue Calf 06 Oct 2012 A South African motorcyclist stopped in the middle of an endurance race to rescue a calf drowning in a canal. On October 23, 2011, Johan Gray was racing in the grueling Amageza Gauteng Qualifier, a preliminary race before the 14-day endurance trek that crosses South Africa. But he didn't think twice before stopping to rescue a calf who was being carried away in a canal. (Video)

Oil corpora-terrorists pushing for a RMoney victory: Gas prices set a record in California 06 Oct 2012 California's average gasoline price set a record Saturday of $4.614 for a gallon of regular, up 12.8 cents overnight – but anyone who filled up in the last few days probably isn't surprised. Saturday's record, as measured by AAA's daily fuel price survey, replaces the old record of $4.610 set in 2008.

Fatal shooting of border agent likely 'friendly fire,'

October 7, 2012 by legitgov

Fatal shooting of border agent likely 'friendly fire,' FBI says 05 Oct 2012 The FBI said Friday that investigators now believe friendly fire led to the killing of Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie and the wounding of a second agent earlier this week in southern Arizona. Authorities initially said that Ivie and two other agents came under fire from assailants as they responded on foot at night to a triggered motion sensor. The shooting happened about 1:30a.m. Tuesday on a hilltop about 6 miles east of Bisbee and a few miles north of the U.S.-Mexican border. Mexican authorities later arrested two suspects in the shooting. But on Friday, James Turgal, the special agent in charge of the Phoenix office of the FBI, confirmed the shooting now appears to be accidental. [?]

Houston Man Receives Visit from FBI after Photographing Weather 05 Oct 2012 A man who snapped photos of a brewing storm last month received a visit Friday from an FBI Agent, inquiring why he would want to take such photos.

But Galindo was left wondering whether he now has a permanent FBI file.

Israeli air force shoots down drone aircraft 06 Oct 2012 The Israeli air force shot down a drone after it crossed into southern Israel on Saturday, the military said, but it remained unclear where the aircraft had come from. The drone was first spotted above the Mediterranean in the area of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip to the west of Israel, said military spokeswoman Avital Leibovich. It was kept under surveillance and followed by Israeli air force jets before it was shot down above a forest in an unpopulated area near the border with the occupied West Bank.

White House Widening Covert War in North Africa

October 6, 2012 by legitgov

White House Widening Covert War in North Africa 03 Oct 2012 Small teams of special operations forces arrived at American embassies throughout North Africa in the months before militants launched the fiery attack that killed the U.S. ambassador in Libya. The soldiers' mission: Set up a network that could quickly strike a terrorist target or rescue a hostage. But the teams had yet to do much counterterrorism work in Libya, though the White House signed off a year ago on the plan to build the new military task force in the region and the advance teams had been there for six months, according to three U.S. counterterror officials and a former intelligence official.

FBI Investigators In and Out of Libya in 12 Hours 05 Oct 2012 A team of FBI agents arrived in Benghazi, Libya, to investigate the assault against the U.S. Consulate and left after about 12 hours on the ground as the hunt for those possibly connected to the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans narrowed to one or two people in an extremist group, [aka US contractors] U.S. officials said Thursday. Agents arrived in Benghazi before dawn on Thursday and departed after sunset, after weeks of waiting for access to the crime scene to investigate the Sept. 11 attack.

Homeland Security finishing acquisition of millions of rounds of high-powered ammo

October 6, 2012 by legitgov

Homeland Security finishing acquisition of millions of rounds of high-powered ammo 13 Aug 2012 The Department of Homeland Security is rushing to finish the acquisition of 750 million rounds of high-power ammunition [enough to take care of the 47%]. In one week, the DHS should start expecting an arsenal that will make some armies jealous. The DHS has updated a solicitation originally posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website earlier this year, now answering questions from prospective contractors about an inquiry the agency published back in April. All responses to the DHS request for hundreds of millions of rounds of high-power ammunition must still be sent in by August 20, but now the federal agency designated to thwart terrorism on the home front has answered some questions about what exactly they are looking for in terms of being able to blow stuff up.

FEMA Ordered to Prepare For 'Mass Fatality Planning' in Bill Introduced Into Congress

October 6, 2012 by legitgov

Remember Homeland Security's recent big ammo shopping spree? Well. FEMA Ordered to Prepare For 'Mass Fatality Planning' in Bill Introduced Into Congress 06 Oct 2012 H.R. 6566: To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide guidance and coordination for mass fatality planning, and for other purposes. This Act may be cited as the "Mass Fatality Planning and Religious Considerations Act". Section 504 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. 314) is amended by adding at the end the following new subsection: "(c) PREPAREDNESS FOR MASS FATALITIES. In carrying out this section, the Administrator shall provide guidance to and coordinate with appropriate individuals, including representatives from different communities, private sector businesses, non-profit organizations, and religious organizations, to prepare for and respond to a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster [nuclear melt-downs, CIA false flags, and pharma-terrorists' pandemics] that results in mass fatalities". Accordig to GovTrack.us, 'This bill was assigned to a congressional committee on September 28, 2012, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.' [Why are WE always the guinea pigs for the US government's chemtrail spraying, biological weapons testing, false flags, pandemics, and scopolamine-fuelled shooting sprees? Why not bank on and plan for your OWN demise -- for once -- instead of OURS? --LRP]

General: 'My Career Was Done' When I Criticized Flawed Warplane

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

General: 'My Career Was Done' When I Criticized Flawed Warplane 04 Oct 2012 Don Harvel thought he was cruising to a well-deserved retirement after 35 years flying cargo planes for the U.S. Air Force. Then in the spring of 2010 he was tapped to investigate the fatal crash of a high-tech Air Force tiltrotor aircraft - and everything changed. What Harvel discovered about the controversial hybrid aircraft drew him into a battle of wills with his superiors at Air Force Special Operations Command. Harvel, then a brigadier general, uncovered evidence of mechanical problems - and resulting safety woes - in the V-22 Osprey, which takes off like a helicopter and flies like an airplane. These are issues the Pentagon has been eager to downplay. So when Harvel refused to alter his findings to match the Defense Department's expectations, he knew that was the final chapter of his decades-long military service... "I turned [my report] in and I knew that my career was done," Harvel says.

US wants to see Syria, Turkey going to war: Iran cmdr. 05 Oct 2012 A senior Iranian military commander says Syria and Turkey should realize that the United States wants a war between the two Muslim countries. "This war is what the US wants and the officials of the two countries [Syria and Turkey] should move towards non-interference in each other's affairs in order to see peace on the borders," Iran's Armed Forces Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said on Friday.

Jobless Rate Falls to 7.8%, Lowest Since January 2009

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

Jobless Rate Falls to 7.8%, Lowest Since January 2009 06 Oct 2012 The nation's unemployment rate dropped sharply to 7.8 percent in September, its lowest level since the month President Obama took office, the Labor Department said Friday. While employers added only a modest 114,000 jobs last month, the jobless rate declined from 8.1 percent in August. The unemployment rate fell because more people were working, not because discouraged job seekers stopped looking, the numbers showed. Adding to the positive news, job gains were revised upward by 40,000 for July (to 181,000) and by 46,000 for August (to 142,000).

Exit Polls Canceled in 19 States

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

Exit Polls Canceled in 19 States [to facilitate the coup] 04 Oct 2012 Breaking from two decades of tradition, this year's election exit poll is set to include surveys of voters in 31 states, not all 50 as it has for the past five presidential elections, according to multiple people involved in the planning. The decision by the National Election Pool - a joint venture of the major television networks and The Associated Press - is sure to cause some pain to election watchers across the country. The lack of data may hamper election night analyses in some states, and it will almost certainly limit post-election research for years to come. The states that will be excluded from coverage are Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Campaign Gains a New Intensity in Debate's Wake

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

Campaign Gains a New Intensity in Debate's Wake 05 Oct 2012 President Obama and Mitt Romney confronted what one feared and the other hoped was an altered campaign on Thursday, pounding new urgency into what was shaping up as a wide-open final sprint to Election Day. A day after the first debate, in which Mr. Obama was almost universally judged to have underperformed and Mr. Romney to have seized his opportunity, the president resolved to do what he did not do the night before: He went straight at the challenger with a forceful argument that Mr. Romney's words of moderation masked extreme conservative policies. "The man onstage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year," the president said at a rally, looking more energetic than he was at his lectern Wednesday night.

Feds indict self-proclaimed Anonymous spokesman Barrett Brown on retaliation, conspiracy charges 04 Oct 2012 Barrett Brown, the self-proclaimed spokesman for the affiliation of worldwide hackers known as Anonymous, has been indicted on three federal charges: making an online threat, retaliating against a federal officer and conspiring to release the personal information of a U.S. government employee. Authorities raided Brown's apartment and arrested him last month while he was chatting online with Anonymous folks. The bulk of the evidence against Brown in the indictment consists of threats he allegedly tweeted and YouTubed in the weeks leading up to his arrest -- most of them aimed at his longtime FBI foil, Agent Robert Smith.

Guantanamo mold, rats could force Sept. 11 case delay [RATS forced the September 11 case in the first place, but those rats scurried and escaped trial.] 04 Oct 2012 Concerns about mold and rats at the U.S. base in Guantanamo in Cuba could prompt another delay in the Sept. 11 case. Defense lawyers have long complained their offices are filled with moldy, dusty air and infested with rats. Several have gotten sick. Now, health officials at the base have declared the offices unfit for working and have ordered repairs. A lawyer for accused terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed says the repairs may not be finished in time for the next round of pretrial hearings, set to start Oct. 15.

Superweeds linked to rising herbicide use in GM crops

October 4, 2012 by legitgov

Superweeds linked to rising herbicide use in GM crops 04 Oct 2012 A study published this week by Washington State University research professor Charles Benbrook finds that the use of herbicides in the production of three genetically modified herbicide-tolerant crops - cotton, soybeans and corn - has actually increased. This counterintuitive finding is based on an exhaustive analysis of publicly available data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agriculture Statistics Service. Benbrook's analysis is the first peer-reviewed, published estimate of the impacts of genetically engineered (GE) herbicide-resistant (HT) crops on pesticide use.

First presidential debate: Obama hit with left hook on TV, online

October 4, 2012 by legitgov

First presidential debate: Obama hit with left hook on TV, online 03 Oct 2012 Left-leaning commentators hit President Barack Obama hard on TV and the Internet after the first presidential debate in Denver on Wednesday night, saying GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney handily defeated his more experienced opponent. MSNBC hosts were "stunned" by Obama's performance, suggesting the president was rusty for not having debated in four years. "I don't think he explained himself very well on the economy. I think he was off his game. I was absolutely stunned tonight," Ed Schultz said. "Where was Obama tonight?" Chris Matthews asked. [Did Barack Obama cut a deal -- make history, serve one term, clear the plate and the 2008 ill-tasting GOP palette, pardon the Bush era war criminals, then turn the reigns of power back over to a (more obvious) Wall Street guy? Note that key elements of Obamacare don't take effect until 2014. Yes, 'health care reform' was born with a 'suicide gene' so that Obama's successor could overturn it 'on Day One.' And what about, in the words of Howard Fineman, the 'criminally negligent' moderator [sic], Jim Lehrer? Lehrer could not bring his useless self to utter a single question regarding Mitt Romney's '47 Percent' comments or that fact that GOP leaders met on Inauguration Day 2009 to 'submarine' Obama's presidency and plot a path to ensure that Barack Obama would be a 'one-term president.' --LRP]

Urgent: Stop the Polar Bear Rug Trade

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

Urgent: Stop the Polar Bear Rug Trade 02 Oct 2012 Adding to polar bears' already bleak prospects from climate change, risky offshore drilling and toxic contamination, the international trade in endangered species parts is booming. The price for polar bear fur reached a record high last year as the bears' numbers shrink along with their sea-ice habitat. The Obama government is considering pushing for greater protections under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species... This year the Russian Federation has promised to support a trade ban on polar bear parts if the United States introduces the resolution. The deadline for introducing the resolution is this week. Please contact the White House now and ask President Barack Obama's government to take a stand for polar bears and champion these urgently needed trade restrictions.

Activists push for international ban on legal trade in polar bear items --US and Russian groups unite to lobby governments after concerns over rise in poaching and melting Arctic ice 01 Oct 2012 Environmental activists in the United States and Russia have come together to push for unprecedented protection for the polar bear, hoping to stave off the decline of its already dwindling population. With Arctic Sea ice at record low because of climate change, polar bears have been deprived of a key habitat and feeding ground. Legal trade in polar bears, mainly in the form of trophy skins and furs, remains legal under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites), leading to the death of hundreds more each year.
