February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Toxic chemical found under O.C. building 28 Feb 2012 (CA) A toxic chemical used in dry cleaning and for degreasing equipment has been found underneath an Orange County building that is already the subject of two lawsuits, officials said Monday. Over the weekend, soil testing was conducted at the two-story office building that houses more than 550 county workers, including employees of the Orange County Social Services Agency and the Sheriff's Department. Tetrachloroethylene, also known as perchloroethylene or perc for short, was detected in an area of soil at 5 feet and 10 feet underground.

Netanyahu will urge Obama to publicly back attack on Iran, sources say

Netanyahu will urge Obama to publicly back attack on Iran, sources say 29 Feb 2012 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to publicly harden his line against Iran during a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington on March 5, according to a senior Israeli official. Israel wants Obama to make further-reaching declarations than the vague assertion that "all options are on the table," the official said. In particular, Netanyahu wants Obama to state unequivocally that the United States is preparing for a military operation in the event that Iran crosses certain "red lines," said the official; Israel feels this will increase pressure on Iran by making clear that there exists a real U.S. threat.

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Goodbye, First Amendment: 'Trespass Bill' will make protest illegal 29 Feb 2012 The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it. The US House of Representatives voted 388-to-3 in favor of H.R. 347 late Monday, a bill which is being dubbed the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. In the bill, Congress officially makes it illegal to trespass on the grounds of the White House. Under the act, the government is also given the power to bring charges against Americans engaged in political protest anywhere in the country.

The attack followed Interpol's announcement Tuesday that it had arrested suspected Anonymous hackers in an operation it titled Operation Unmask.

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Japan's leaders feared 'devil's chain reaction' at plant 28 Feb 2012 Japan's prime minister ordered workers to remain at the tsunami-crippled Fukushima nuclear plant last March as fears mounted of a "devil's chain reaction" that would force tens of millions of people to flee Tokyo, a new investigative report shows. Then-premier Naoto Kan and his staff began referring to a worst case scenario that could threaten Japan's existence as a nation around three days after the March 11 events, according to the report by a panel set up by a private think-tank. At that point, fears mounted that thousands of spent fuel rods stored at a damaged reactor would melt and spew radiation after a hydrogen explosion at an adjacent reactor building, according to the panel report.

Justice Dept. to review NYPD over Muslim spying

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Justice Dept. to review NYPD over Muslim spying 28 Feb 2012 Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress on Tuesday that, months after receiving complaints about the New York Police Department's surveillance of entire American Muslim neighborhoods, the Justice Department is beginning a review to decide whether to investigate civil rights violations... Holder responded under questioning by Rep. Mike Honda, D-Calif., who as an infant was sent with his parents to a Japanese internment camp during World War II and has compared that policy to the NYPD's treatment of Muslims. Holder did not suggest that a Justice Department investigation of the NYPD was imminent. [Of course not. Integrity-free Obama has to check with his GOP overlords prior to taking action. BTW, how are those DOJ investigations into the CIA waterboarders going? Oh, that's right. They're *not.* --LRP]

Romney Wins Michigan After Tight Race

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Romney Wins Michigan After Tight Race 29 Feb 2012 Mitt Romney fended off a vigorous challenge from Rick Santorum in Michigan on Tuesday, narrowly carrying his native state, and won the Arizona primary on a day that revived his candidacy but did not erase the qualms conservatives have raised about his Republican presidential bid. The victory by Mr. Romney in Arizona, which awarded him the state's entire allotment of 29 delegates, was overshadowed by the battle in Michigan, a state steeped in his family's history. The contest with Mr. Santorum highlighted larger concerns surrounding his candidacy, but the win spared his campaign from far greater turmoil.

Romney Wins Arizona GOP Primary

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Romney Wins Arizona GOP Primary 28 Feb 2012 Mitt Romney won the Arizona primary and was locked in a tight battle with Rick Santorum for Michigan Tuesday, with returns showing Mr. Romney holding a small lead in his native state. The former Massachusetts governor had been widely expected to win Arizona. Michigan was the fiercer battleground, and the results in that state could determine whether Mr. Santorum can offset Mr. Romney's advantages in money, organization and experience. The outcome in Michigan and Arizona will set the stage for the biggest primary day of the year a week from now, when 10 states hold Republican primaries or caucuses on March 6, Super Tuesday.

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Israel to attack Iran without US permission: Report 28 Feb 2012 Israeli official say they will not alert the US if they decide to launch a military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities amid growing war threats against Tehran. An unnamed US intelligence official said Israelis argue that if they keep Washington in the dark, it is unlikely that the US would be held responsible for failing to stop Israel's potential assault. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of Military Affairs Ehud Barak have delivered the message to senior US officials who have visited Israel, the Associated Press reported.

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Nuclear Energy Group Sues Over Uranium Mining Ban in Arizona 28 Feb 2012 The Nuclear Energy Institute and the National Mining Association said they sued the U.S. to reverse a ban on new uranium mining on federal land around the Grand Canyon in Arizona. The two organizations [corpora-terrorists], representing mining and nuclear power companies, today asked a federal court in Arizona to reverse a U.S. Interior Department ban, announced Jan. 9, on new hard-rock mining claims on about 1 million acres (405,000 hectares) of land, according to an e-mailed statement. The lawsuit couldn't be independently confirmed from court records.

Citing partisanship, Maine's Snowe says she'll leave the Senate

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Citing partisanship, Maine's Snowe says she'll leave the Senate 29 Feb 2012 Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine announced Tuesday she will retire rather than seek re-election this year, surprising colleagues and perhaps casting the future of her seat in doubt. Snowe, 65, was first elected to the U.S. House in 1978 and then to the Senate in 1994. She is the first woman to serve in both chambers of a state legislature and the U.S. Congress. Snowe was known as a moderate who sometimes sided with Democrats in the increasingly partisan environment of Washington politics.

Third Student Dies After Ohio School Shooting

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Third Student Dies After Ohio School Shooting 29 Feb 2012 The fatal shooting rampage in a high school in this quiet suburb of Cleveland remained a puzzle on Tuesday, with prosecutors saying that a student had confessed to the killings and had told them that he did not know his victims and chose them at random. Prosecutors said the student, T. J. Lane, 17, admitted taking a .22-caliber Ruger semiautomatic pistol to Chardon High School on Monday and firing 10 rounds at four students at a cafeteria table. He has not been formally charged, but prosecutors said it was likely that he would be tried in an adult court.

Kelly Defends Surveillance of Muslims

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Kelly Defends Surveillance of Muslims 28 Feb 2012 Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly defended the New York Police Department's counterterrorism program on Monday, saying "people have short memories as to what happened here in 2001." Mr. Kelly's remarks, made during an appearance on WOR-AM (710), were in response to growing criticism of the department's surveillance methods, including monitoring of Muslim communities in New York City and beyond, and its reliance on stop-and-frisk interactions as a crime-fighting tool. He defended the surveillance conducted by the Police Department, saying, "It would be folly for us to focus only on the five boroughs of New York City, and we have to use all of our resources to protect everyone."

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Siku the Polar Bear Goes Live on International Polar Bear Day 27 Feb 2012 Today is International Polar Bear Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about polar bears and conservation efforts surrounding the species.

Beginning today, the Wildlife Park, in conjunction with Explore.org and Polar Bears International, will have a live camera dedicated to Siku, the adorable polar bear, from 9am-11am EST daily. The aim of showing this adorable cub is to bring people to their senses and make people realize that an entire species (equally as cute as Siku) is in danger.

Polar bear cub going live to save sea ice 27 Feb 2012 Officials at Denmark's Scandinavian Wildlife Park said Siku the polar bear cub would have an important burden to shoulder. "Siku is going to be an ambassador for polar bears, for global warming," park director Frank Vigh-Larsen said in December.

"We"re launching the Siku Cam on International Polar Bear Day, which is a day of action on climate change," Robert Buchanan, president and CEO of Polar Bears International, said in a press release. "Our goal with the Siku Cam is for people to fall in love with this little cub and become inspired to reduce their carbon footprint to help save arctic sea ice."

Dow crosses 13,000, first time since crisis 28 Feb 2012 The Dow Jones industrial average on Tuesday finally reclaimed the ground it held before the carnage of the Great Recession- bailouts, bank failures, layoffs by the million and a stock market panic that cut retirement savings in half. The Dow closed above 13,000 for the first time since May 19, 2008, almost four months before the fall of the Lehman Bros. investment bank triggered the worst of the financial crisis. The Dow finished at 13,005.12, up 23.61 points for the day.

Some September 11 dead's remains ended in landfill 28 Feb 2012 Partial remains from some people killed in the September 11 attacks in 2001 ended up in a landfill, according to a Pentagon-commissioned report released on Tuesday that revealed previously undisclosed blunders at the U.S. military's main mortuary. The unidentified remains came from two of the three sites of the September 11 attacks: the Pentagon and the Shanksville, Pennsylvania crash site of one of the 'hijacked airliners.' Retired General John Abizaid, briefing Pentagon reporters on the findings of the independent review of practices at the mortuary at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, said it was unclear how many people's partial remains were disposed of in this manner.

US draws up secret charges against Assange: media --'We have a sealed indictment on Assange.' 28 Feb 2012 US prosecutors have drawn up secret charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Australian media reported Wednesday, citing a confidential email. The email is one of a huge number from the US-based global intelligence company Stratfor that the whistleblowing organisation began publishing Monday. Internal correspondence to Stratfor analysts from vice-president of intelligence Fred Burton said: "We have a sealed indictment on Assange," according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Fukushima crisis: Official warned 'demonic chain reaction' of plant meltdowns could trigger evacuation of Tokyo

February 29, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima crisis: Official warned 'demonic chain reaction' of plant meltdowns could trigger evacuation of Tokyo 28 Feb 2012 In the darkest moments of last year's nuclear accident, Japanese leaders did not know the actual extent of damage at the plant and secretly considered the possibility of evacuating Tokyo, even as they tried to play down the risks in public, an independent investigation into the accident disclosed on Monday... The 400-page report, due to be released later this week, also describes a darkening mood at the prime minister's residence as a series of hydrogen explosions rocked the plant on March 14 and 15. It says Prime Minister Naoto Kan and other officials began discussing a worst-case outcome if workers at the Fukushima Daiichi plant were evacuated. This would have allowed the plant to spiral out of control, releasing even larger amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere that would in turn force the evacuation of other nearby nuclear plants, causing further meltdowns. The report quotes the chief cabinet secretary at the time, Yukio Edano, as having warned that such a "demonic chain reaction" of plant meltdowns could result in the evacuation of Tokyo, 150 miles to the south.

BP seeks settlement with oil spill plaintiffs group

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

BP seeks settlement with oil spill plaintiffs group 28 Feb 2012 BP Plc is seeking to settle a lawsuit over the massive 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill by tapping a $14 billion fund it set aside to compensate fishermen and businesses harmed by the disaster, lawyers familiar with the talks said. In exchange, the claimants, represented by a group called the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee, would drop their lawsuit in a court case scheduled to start in New Orleans on March 5. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier delayed the trial by a week on Sunday to allow talks between BP and the PSC, which represents fishermen, oystermen, hoteliers and restaurateurs who say their livelihoods were damaged by the April 20, 2010, explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and subsequent oil spill.

US tax dollars at work: War games: Tel Aviv missile drill 27 Feb 2012 Preparing for escalation? Security officials are taking the threat of long-range rockets being fired at central Israel from the Gaza Strip seriously, and have decided to hold a drill to prepare for such scenario. The exercise, to be held in the Tel Aviv area next month, will simulate rocket attacks on central Israel that are not undertaken in the framework of an all-out regional war, unlike previous missile drills. The "Hit to the Heart" drill will be held on March 14 in the form of a war game held by senior officials and simulating rocket attacks launched without prior warning.

Va. Senate kills bill repealing vaccine mandate

Hypocritical GOP sociopaths/DemocRATs think forced mercury-laden, squalene-filled vaccines are not government intrusion: Va. Senate kills bill repealing vaccine mandate 28 Feb 2012 Legislation repealing a requirement that girls receive a vaccine to prevent a sexually transmitted, cancer-causing virus that causes Guillain-Barre Syndrome was killed for this year when the Senate voted 22-17 Monday to send the bill back to committee and carry it over to 2013. Republicans John Watkins of Powhatan County and Frank Wagner of Virginia Beach joined all 20 Senate Democrats in rejecting the bill. Del. Kathy Byron, R-Campbell County, sponsored the measure to repeal the [insane] 2007 law mandating the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine before girls reach sixth grade... California recently passed a law allowing children as young as 12 to be vaccinated without their parents' consent.

Virginia Senate approves contentious ultrasound bill

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Virginia Senate approves contentious ultrasound bill 28 Feb 2012 The Virginia Senate voted Tuesday for a scaled-back version of a contentious proposal that would require women to undergo external ultrasounds before abortions, but not the transvaginal ones. The 21-19 vote in the Republican-controlled Senate - mostly along party lines - came after Gov. Robert F. McDonnell asked legislators to soften the bill following protests on Capitol Square and mocking on national television. McDonnell, an abortion opponent who had said he would sign the bill, asked lawmakers to amend the measure after it became clear the original legislation would have required a vaginal ultrasound in most cases.

Federal Money Linked to NYPD's Muslim Surveillance Program

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Federal Money Linked to NYPD's Muslim Surveillance Program 27 Feb 2012 The Associated Press reports that the New York Police Department's controversial program to monitor Muslim neighborhoods and organizations was funded, at least in part, by White House grants meant to pay for the drug war. The money was given to the NYPD through the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program, which was established years ago to fight gangs and drug trafficking. After September 11, 2001, however, local authorities were permitted to redirect some of that money to fight terrorism. The HIDTA has given out around $2.3 billion over the last 10 years, with about $135 million given to officials in the New York/New Jersey metro area.

Scientific evidence unearthed by Scottish legal review undermines Lockerbie case

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Another historical narrative baked in a CIA false flag bites the dust: Scientific evidence unearthed by Scottish legal review undermines Lockerbie case --Secret legal files show that conviction in aircraft bombing case would probably have been overturned. 27 Feb 2012 Fresh scientific evidence unearthed by a Scottish legal review undermines the case against the man convicted of being responsible for the Lockerbie aircraft bombing, an investigation for Al Jazeera has found. The Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission (SCCRC) report details evidence that would probably have resulted in the verdict against Abdel Baset al-Meghrahi, a Libyan man convicted of carrying out the bombing of Pan-Am flight 103 in 1988, being overturned. 'Lockerbie: Case Closed', a documentary to be aired on Al Jazeera on Monday, examines the evidence uncovered by the SCCRC as well as revealing fresh scientific evidence which is unknown to the commission but which comprehensively undermines a crucial part of the case against the man known as the Lockerbie bomber.

WikiLeaks releases first 200 of 5m Stratfor emails

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

WikiLeaks releases first 200 of 5m Stratfor emails 27 Feb 2012 WikiLeaks has released the first 200 of a cache of 5m emails obtained from the servers of Stratfor, a US-based intelligence firm. The emails originated not from a whistleblower, but instead from a series of hacking attacks against Stratfor in December 2011, carried out by the online activist collective Anonymous. Anonymous apparently passed the emails to WikiLeaks in the weeks following the attack. The whistleblowing website then recruited, according to its statement, 25 media partners to work on the document cache.

Obama using Espionage Act to 'silence and prosecute federal workers' - NYT

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Obama using Espionage Act to 'silence and prosecute federal workers' - NYT 27 Feb 2012 The Obama administration, which promised during its transition to power that it would enhance "whistle-blower laws to protect federal workers," has been more prone than any administration in history in trying to silence and prosecute federal workers. The Espionage Act, enacted in 1917 to punish those who gave aid to US enemies, has been used six times since the current president took office. In the most recent case, John Kiriakou, a former C.I.A. officer who became a Democratic staff member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was charged under the Espionage Act with leaking information to journalists about other C.I.A. officers, some of whom were involved in the agency's interrogation program, which included waterboarding. For those of you keeping score, none of the individuals who engaged in or authorized the waterboarding of terror suspects have been prosecuted, but Mr. Kiriakou is in federal cross hairs, accused of talking to journalists and news organizations, including The New York Times.

Report: Gov't 'collapsed' during Japan nuclear crisis

February 28, 2012 by legitgov

Report: Gov't 'collapsed' during Japan nuclear crisis 27 Feb 2012 Today, a report revealed the chaos between Japan's leaders during the Fukushima nuclear crisis. "The normal lines of authority completely collapsed," Tetsuro Fukuyama, the prime minister's adviser, told investigators. With little information from the plant, Fukuyama said that the government thought that a nuclear meltdown was impending, and feared that a massive cloud of radiation would force the evacuation of 30 million people in the Tokyo region. As a last-ditch effort, the Japanese government discussed "suicide squad" made up of men over 65 years old to ascertain the damage first hand. Fukuyama said he would lead the group.
