DHS Trolling Web for Sandy Hook Rifle 'Oddities' - CLG Website Logs

January 7, 2013 by legitgov

DHS Trolling Web for Sandy Hook Rifle 'Oddities' - CLG Website Logs by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 07 Jan 2013 CLG website logs frequently reveal fascinating .gov and .mil visitors, such as the CIA, Pentagon, FBI, DIA, and NASA. On Monday, the DHS accessed CLG's news summary, 'Bushmaster rifle used in CT shootings was same weapon used in Washington, D.C. sniper killings in 2002,' posted 16 December 2012... Here we learn two facts. One, Homeland Security has trouble spelling 'Connecticut.' Two, the DHS also has questions on the Sandy Hook shootings -- as does Citizens for Legitimate Government.

Nuclear Security Helicopters Testing Radiation Levels Above DC Area

January 7, 2013 by legitgov

Nuclear Security Helicopters Testing Radiation Levels Above DC Area 05 Jan 2013 Helicopters have been conducting radiation tests above portions of the Washington, D.C. area using remote gamma radiation sensing technology. The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has been flying the radiation missions since Dec. 27, 2012 and they will continue until next Friday, Jan. 11. The flights have been conducted during daylight only, and the pilots fly about 80 miles per hour at 150 feet above the approximately 70-square mile radiation assessment area. Naturally-occurring radiation is measured so that baseline levels can be established and used in security and emergency preparedness [and false flags], reads a statement from the NNSA.

New York Jets Safety Strips For Anti-Fur Ad

January 7, 2013 by legitgov

Warning: Graphic imagery and video at source: New York Jets Safety Strips For Anti-Fur Ad 06 Jan 2013 Former New England Patriot Safety (and brand new New York Jet Safety) Bret Lockett is very buff -- and very naked -- in an ad that puts his chiseled physique to work in the struggle to end the fur trade. The NFL star, who began his professional career with the Cleveland Browns in 2009, is the latest athlete to pose for the animal rights group's "Ink, Not Mink" campaign. In a behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot, released by PETA, Lockett said he joined the campaign after watching gruesome footage of animals skinned alive for coats.

Bush-Era Wiretapping Case Killed Before Reaching Supreme Court

January 7, 2013 by legitgov

Bush-Era Wiretapping Case Killed Before Reaching Supreme Court 03 Jan 2013 A federal appeals court's August ruling in which it said the federal government may spy on Americans' communications without warrants and without fear of being sued won't be appealed to the Supreme Court, attorneys in the case said Thursday. The decision by a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this summer reversed the first and only case that successfully challenged then-President [sic] George W. Bush's once-secret Terrorist Surveillance Program. In December, the San Francisco-based appeals court - the nation's largest - declined to revisit its decision -- making the case ripe for an appeal to the Supreme Court. The appellate decision overturned a lower court decision in which two American attorneys - who were working with the now-defunct al-Haramain Islamic Foundation - were awarded more than $20,000 each in damages and their lawyers $2.5 million in legal fees after a years-long, tortured legal battle where they proved they were spied on without warrants.

Obama signs Pentagon bill maintaining Guantanamo and military detention

January 7, 2013 by legitgov

Obama signs Pentagon bill maintaining Guantanamo and military detention 05 Jan 2013 For the second year in a row, President Barack Obama has signed into law a Pentagon funding bill that allows for the indefinite military detention of anyone, including American citizens, without charges, while barring the shutdown of the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The signing of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 Wednesday puts paid to the predictions by the administration's liberal and pseudo-left supporters that Obama, freed of re-election concerns, would pursue a more "progressive" political course in his second term. As in 2012, this legislation enshrines a sweeping assault on core constitutional principles and democratic rights. The legislation's provisions underscore the link between the eruption of American militarism abroad and the lurch toward police-state measures at home.

EPA agrees to look into town's radiation concerns

January 7, 2013 by legitgov

EPA agrees to look into town's radiation concerns 06 Jan 2013 Federal environmental officials will investigate concerns about radiation levels in a northwestern Indiana community after residents and activists raised concern. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency notified local officials late last month that the EPA would study the levels in The Pines early this year, The Times reported. Larry Jensen of PINES (People in Need of Environmental Safety) and a former EPA employee, conducted his own study of radiation levels and concluded that levels in the town are elevated.

Obama to nominate Hagel for defense secretary: Democratic aide

January 6, 2013 by legitgov

Obama to nominate Hagel for defense secretary: Democratic aide 06 Jan 2013 President Barack Obama will nominate former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel to be his defense secretary and an announcement could come on Monday, a Democratic congressional aide said. The choice will likely set up a confirmation battle in the Senate over whether the former Nebraska senator and Vietnam veteran is a strong enough supporter of key U.S. ally Israel and over his past calls for military cuts. The Obama administration backed down from a tough Senate confirmation battle over Susan Rice, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, who was Obama's first pick to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. [Why is 'strong enough support' for Israel a prerequisite in the vetting process of a US defense secretary? And, why is no one asking that question?]

Construction is complete on behemoth airship; first flight planned

January 6, 2013 by legitgov

Too bad the Pentagon wasn't shoved off the fiscal cliff: Construction is complete on behemoth airship; first flight planned --Worldwide Aeros built prototype under contract of about $35 million from Pentagon and NASA 04 Jan 2013 A massive cargo-carrying airship has taken shape inside one of the 17-story wooden blimp hangars at the former military base in Tustin. According to aircraft maker Worldwide Aeros Corp., construction is complete on a 36,000-pound blimp-like aircraft designed for the military to carry tons of cargo to remote areas around the world. The Montebello company hopes to have a first flight in the coming months and to demonstrate cargo-carrying capability shortly thereafter.

Two Chinese women die from H1N1 flu in Beijing: state media 06 Jan 2013 Two Chinese women have died from the H1N1 flu strain in Beijing in the past 10 days, Chinese state media said on Sunday, the first reported deaths from the virus in China's capital since 2010. A 65-year-old cancer patient died on Friday and a 22-year-old migrant worker died on December 27, the Beijing Daily said on its website, citing the city's Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Flu cases in Beijing are at their highest level in five years and the H1N1 strain has become the most dominant, the centre's director Deng Ying said.

White House weighs broad gun-control agenda in wake of Newtown shootings

January 6, 2013 by legitgov

White House weighs broad gun-control agenda in wake of Newtown shootings 05 Jan 2013 The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation's gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration's discussions. A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.

Idle No More protesters have staged a railroad blockade Saturday evening in Marysville, Ont., near Kingston. Via Rail trains travelling the Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Ottawa corridors have been disrupted.

Former C.I.A. Officer Is the First to Face Prison for a Classified Leak

January 5, 2013 by legitgov

Former C.I.A. Officer Is the First to Face Prison for a Classified Leak --Mr. Kiriakou first stumbled into the public limelight by speaking out about waterboarding on television in 2007. 06 Jan 2013 On Jan. 25, John C. Kiriakou is scheduled to be sentenced to 30 months in prison as part of a plea deal in which he admitted violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act by e-mailing the name of a covert C.I.A. officer to a freelance reporter, who did not publish it. The law was passed in 1982, aimed at radical publications that deliberately sought to out undercover agents... In more than six decades of fraught interaction between the agency and the news media, John Kiriakou is the first current or former C.I.A. officer to be convicted of disclosing classified information to a reporter. Mr. Kiriakou, 48, earned numerous commendations in nearly 15 years at the C.I.A., some of which were spent undercover overseas chasing 'Al Qaeda' and other terrorist groups.

Four dead in another Aurora, Colorado shooting 05 Jan 2013 Four people were dead including the gunman following a hostage-taking incident in Aurora, Colorado, the same town where a man shot dead 12 people and wounded 58 more at a movie theatre last July, Denver-area media reported. Police fired tear gas and entered the home on Saturday after several hours of failed negotiations with the gunman, who had barricaded himself inside, and shot him dead, KUSA television reported. Inside they found three other people shot dead, media reports said.

Global warming: 2012 was the hottest year recorded 04 Jan 2013 It may be cold now, but 2012 was the warmest year on record especially for us here in the northeast. According to the Northeast Regional Climate Center, for most major cities 2012 was the "hottest" year ever recorded. In New England, Boston, Worcester, Hartford, and Burlington, Vermont, all broke the record for the warmest annual temperature last year.

Workers making $30,000 will take a bigger hit on their pay than those earning $500,000 under new fiscal deal

January 5, 2013 by legitgov

Workers making $30,000 will take a bigger hit on their pay than those earning $500,000 under new fiscal deal 03 Jan 2013 Middle-class workers will take a bigger hit to their income proportionately than those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 under the new fiscal cliff deal, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. Earners in the latter group will pay an average 1.3 percent more - or an additional $2,711 - in taxes this year, while workers making between $30,000 and $200,000 will see their paychecks shrink by as much as 1.7 percent - or up to $1,784 - the D.C.-based think tank reported. Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal.

Radioactive waste dumped into rivers during decontamination work in Fukushima

Radioactive waste dumped into rivers during decontamination work in Fukushima 04 Jan 2013 Cleanup crews in Fukushima Prefecture have dumped soil and leaves contaminated with radioactive fallout into rivers. Water sprayed on contaminated buildings has been allowed to drain back into the environment. And supervisors have instructed workers to ignore rules on proper collection and disposal of the radioactive waste. The 'decontamination' work witnessed by a team of Asahi Shimbun reporters shows that contractual rules with the Environment Ministry have been regularly and blatantly ignored, and in some cases, could violate environmental laws.

Hugo Chávez fights for life as supporters pray in Venezuela

January 5, 2013 by legitgov

Hugo Chávez fights for life as supporters pray in Venezuela 04 Jan 2013 The change of mood in Plaza Bolivar could hardly be more dramatic. Less than three months ago, jubilant crowds filled the main square in Caracas to celebrate another election triumph for Hugo Chávez with chants of "Oo, ah, Chávez no se va" -- Chávez won't go. Next Thursday, Chávez is supposed to be inaugurated for a further six-year term of office at a ceremony at the National Assembly, a short walk from the plaza. In the latest in a series of grave bulletins, the government said on Thursday that the president was suffering from complications brought on by a severe lung infection after surgery. Aides earlier described his condition as "delicate".

Congress passes $9.7 billion in Sandy aid, with some House GOP dissent

January 4, 2013 by legitgov

Congress passes $9.7 billion in Sandy aid, with some House GOP dissent 04 Jan 2013 Congress has approved $9.7 billion in new aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy, with a face-saving quick move by the House taken three days after Speaker John A. Boehner earned scathing criticism from New York and New Jersey Republicans for canceling a late-night vote on the funds. The bill, which will allow the Federal Emergency Management Agency to pay out claims to those who held federal flood insurance, was approved in the House on a 354 to 67 vote. After the House action, the Senate also adopted by bill in a quick unanimous voice vote, sending it to President Obama. Boehner (R-Ohio) seems to have had reason to be concerned about bringing a larger $60 billion spending measure to the floor on Tuesday: The 67 votes against the smaller bill on Friday came from his own party members.

17 soldiers abandon base along Syrian border, are sent to jail --Golani Brigade troops stationed on Mount Hermon cite humiliating treatment from their commanding officers 03 Jan 2013 Citing humiliating treatment by their commanders, 17 infantry soldiers mutinied and abandoned their post on Mount Hermon, near Israel's border with Syria, on Wednesday night. The soldiers, all members of the 12th Battalion of the Golani Brigade, were protesting the fact that their commanding officers weren't dispatching new recruits to the base. They claimed that they were forced to carry out tasks that are often considered beneath experienced soldiers, including guard duty and cleaning.

Hillary Clinton to return to work next week

January 4, 2013 by legitgov

Hillary Clinton to return to work next week 03 Jan 2013 Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is "raring to go" and plans to return to work next week after medical setbacks that kept her out of public view for more than three weeks, a spokeswoman said Thursday. Clinton's return to work will probably be brief. The White House has already picked Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to succeed her and is expected to formally nominate Kerry within days. Clinton was released from a New York hospital Wednesday evening, three days after a blood clot was discovered inside her skull.

Venezuelan government announces Chávez has 'severe' respiratory infection 04 Jan 2013 Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez is still suffering a "severe" respiratory infection that has hindered his breathing as he struggles to recover from cancer surgery in Cuba, the government said on Thursday. The 58-year-old socialist leader has not been seen in public nor heard from in more than three weeks. Officials say he is in delicate condition after his fourth operation in just 18 months for an undisclosed form of cancer in his pelvic area.

Limited Sandy relief vote to occur on Friday

January 4, 2013 by legitgov

Limited Sandy relief vote to occur on Friday 03 Jan 2013 After a firestorm of criticism from Northeast Republicans, the House of Representatives is expected to take up an aid package on Friday meant to address those still reeling in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Lawmakers will consider $9 billion in immediate assistance for flood insurance and will weigh another $51 billion in broader aid on January 15. The Senate, which had already approved the larger Sandy plan that the House refused to consider, is expected to sign off on the scaled-back version on Friday as well, according to a Democratic leadership aide. Senators will hold off on any further action, however.

Broad $60.4B Sandy relief bill criticized as 'pork'

January 4, 2013 by legitgov

Broad $60.4B Sandy relief bill criticized as 'pork' 03 Jan 2013 In more than 100 pages of legislation detailing the $60 billion disaster aid plan Congress considered, there's almost no mention of specific projects: no order to rebuild the sand dunes in Belmar that washed away. No earmark to fix the breached berm in the Meadowlands that flooded Moonachie and Little Ferry. No direct payment for the thousands left homeless. Instead, the versions that passed between the House and Senate laid out the spending in broad terms. Replenish the Federal Emergency Management Agency's budget; allocate funds for the Army Corps of Engineers to rebuild beaches and channels destroyed by superstorm Sandy; repair damaged roads, bridges and railroad infrastructure; and fund disaster relief and long-term housing needs through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. Those broad, unspecified categories -- as well as a Senate bill that once included $400 million for projects like a new roof on the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., and funding for fisheries in Alaska -- allowed critics in Congress and elsewhere to claim the aid package is laden with "pork," or unnecessary spending.

Defense bill's Guantanamo Bay provisions have human rights groups upset with Obama

January 4, 2013 by legitgov

Defense bill's Guantanamo Bay provisions have human rights groups upset with Obama 03 Jan 2013 With President Obama's second term about to begin, one of his administration's first promises, that it would close the military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, looks all but abandoned after he signed a defense bill late Wednesday that includes an array of tough restrictions on the transfer of detainees prisoners out of the facility. Obama had threatened to veto the $633 billion National Defense Authorization Act but signed it, as he did last year, with a statement criticizing sections of the bill that he said are "unwarranted restrictions on the executive branch's authority" by Congress. In the case of Guantanamo, the legislation bars the transfer of prisoners into the United States for any purpose, including trials in federal court. It also requires the defense secretary to meet rigorous conditions before any prisoner can be returned to his own country or resettled in a third country.

FAA restricts air zone around grounded Shell Oil drilling rig off Alaska coast

FAA restricts air zone around grounded Shell Oil drilling rig off Alaska coast 02 Jan 2013 Salvage crews hoped to board the grounded drill rig Kulluk on Wednesday to better assess damage to the beached vessel, but bad weather remained a factor. Coast Guard flyovers are planned for Wednesday over the Royal Dutch Shell conical drilling unit, which grounded off of Sitkalidak Island near southwestern Kodiak Island on Dec. 31. Those crews will determine whether it is safe to deploy a team onto the Kulluk to further evaluate the condition of the rig, which ran aground late Monday night.

Boehner's White House F-bomb

January 4, 2013 by legitgov

Boehner's White House F-bomb 02 Jan 2013 For all the stalemate in the 'fiscal cliff,' there were some heated moments, too. A Democratic source familiar with one particular exchange told CNN that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell were sitting on a sofa in the White House. House Speaker John Boehner breezed in and his first words to Reid were "Go f*** yourself." Boehner's comment came after Reid took to the Senate floor on Thursday and characterized the House speaker's handling of his chamber as a "dictatorship." Reid responded to Boehner's confrontational tone by laughing, the Democratic source said, though a GOP source who was there said he didn't think Reid was all that happy.

Thousands call for Iraq prisoner release, slam PM

January 4, 2013 by legitgov

Thousands call for Iraq prisoner release, slam PM 04 Jan 2013 Thousands of protesters in Sunni-majority areas of Iraq called Thursday for the release of prisoners and the resignation of the Shiite premier, the latest in more than a week of anti-government rallies. Officials sought to head off the demonstrations by beginning a mass release of female prisoners, a key demand of Sunni Arab protesters angered by what they allege is the misuse of anti-terror legislation by the Shiite-led authorities to target their minority community. In a sign of cross-sectarian anger with the government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, meanwhile, hundreds of protesters from mostly-Shiite provinces in south Iraq joined the rallies, days after a powerful Shiite cleric voiced support for the demonstrations.
