White House insists James Clapper will not lead NSA surveillance review --White House national security council insists Clapper's role would be 'limited' [?!]13 Aug 2013 The White House has moved to dampen controversy over the role of the director of national intelligence James Clapper in a panel reviewing NSA surveillance, insisting that he would neither lead it nor choose the members. Statements by Barack Obama and Clapper on Monday night were widely interpreted as the director of national intelligence being placed in charge of the inquiry, which the president had announced on Friday would be "independent". The apparent involvement of Clapper, who has admitted lying to Congress over NSA surveillance of US citizens, provoked a backlash, with critics accusing the president of putting a fox in charge of the hen house.

August 14, 2013 by legitgov

Fukushima Workers Exposed to Radiation From Spray 12 Aug 2013 Ten workers at the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant were exposed to radiation from contaminated mist used to cool temperatures near a quake-proof building, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said. The workers were waiting for a bus when they were sprayed, according to Tepco, as the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant's operator is known. The workers' exposure above the neck was found to be as much as 10 becquerels per square centimeter. They were ordered to receive full body scans, which can detect exposure to their inner organs.

August 14, 2013 by legitgov

New Poll: De Blasio Is Now First Among Voters 14 Aug 2013 In a jolt to the Democratic campaign for mayor, a new poll suggests that Bill de Blasio, the most liberal of the leading candidates, has vaulted into first place among likely voters. With one month to go until the Sept. 10 primary, Mr. de Blasio has now passed Christine C. Quinn, the City Council speaker [Bloomberg clone/ MSNBC troll], who had led in most polls for months, although her lead had already narrowed. Until a month or so ago, Mr. de Blasio had been mired in fourth place, about 10 points behind Ms. Quinn.

August 13, 2013 by legitgov

BP sues to get new contracts after oil spill 12 Aug 2013 [Terrorist group] BP is suing the U.S. government over a decision to bar the oil giant from getting new federal contracts to supply fuel and other services after the company pleaded guilty to manslaughter and other criminal charges related to the[ir] 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The Houston Chronicle reports British oil giant BP filed the lawsuit Monday in Houston federal court. BP says it is seeking an injunction that would lift an order by the Environmental Protection Agency that suspends the company from such contracts.

North Carolina governor signs voter ID bill

August 13, 2013 by legitgov

North Carolina governor signs voter ID bill 12 Aug 2013 North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory [R] on Monday signed into law a bill requiring voters to produce a photo ID when they go to the polls, and it was immediately met with legal challenges in federal court questioning its constitutionality. The new law brings sweeping changes to the state's election process by reducing the early-voting period by a week, abolishing same-day voter registration and ending straight-party voting. "With one stroke of the pen, McCrory has effectively reversed 30 years of progress and reinstated practices similar to the discriminatory 'Southern Strategy' adopted by the Republican Party in the '60s and '70s," said Congressman G.K. Butterfield, a former North Carolina Supreme Court justice. "Without question, today is a shameful day for Republicans in North Carolina."

CIA: Drones Document Count Would Damage National Security

August 13, 2013 by legitgov

CIA: Drones Document Count Would Damage National Security 12 Aug 2013 The CIA admitted late Friday it has a number of documents about drones, but told a federal court that disclosing even the number of documents it possessed would damage national security. The disclosure came around 11:00 p.m., hours after President Barack Obama held a press conference promising more transparency around national security issues. Government lawyers contended in the filing that providing additional information about the CIA's drones documents, as requested in American Civil Liberties Union v. Central Intelligence Agency, one of several drone-related lawsuits the ACLU has filed against the federal government, would imperil the homeland.

First 100 Pages of Aaron Swartz's Secret Service File Released

August 13, 2013 by legitgov

First 100 Pages of Aaron Swartz's Secret Service File Released 12 Aug 2013 After half-a-year of delays and roadblocks, the U.S Secret Service today released the first 104 pages of agency documents about the late coder and activist Aaron Swartz, including a brief report on Swartz's suicide less than three months before his scheduled trial. "On 1/11/13, Aaron Swartz was found dead in his apartment in Brooklyn, as a result of an apparent suicide," reads a January 17, 2013 Secret Service memo. "A suppression hearing in this had been scheduled for 1/25/13 with a trial date of 4/1/13, in U.S. District Court of the District of Massachusetts." The heavily redacted documents released today confirm earlier reports that the Secret Service was interested in a "Guerilla Open Access Manifesto" that Swartz and others had penned in 2008.

Sinkhole swallows part of Florida resort 12 Aug 2013 A holiday resort near Disney World has been partially swallowed by the ground after a new sinkhole opened beneath the streets of Florida. Two buildings housing holidaymakers at the Summer Bay Resort in Clermont sank into a crater that grew to be 60 feet wide and 15 feet deep. Some 35 guests escaped or were evacuated after hearing windows cracking and feeling their floors give way. Some were forced to flee without their belongings.

10 exposed to radiation at Fukushima nuclear plant

August 12, 2013 by legitgov

10 exposed to radiation at Fukushima nuclear plant 12 Aug 2013 Ten workers at Japan's crippled nuclear plant were exposed Monday to small amounts of radiation while conducting cleanup activities, the plant's operator said. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said it is still investigating how the workers were contaminated at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, but that it may have been from radioactive dust. It said small amounts of radiation were found on the workers' faces and hair. [All radiation is deadly - 'small amounts' is TEPCO propaganda. Either the workers were exposed to radiation--or not. Also, I notice that the global corporate-run media has replaced the word 'radioactive' with 'toxic.' At CLG, we change it back. --LRP]

NYPD's 'stop-and-frisk' practice is unconstitutional, judge rules

August 12, 2013 by legitgov

NYPD's 'stop-and-frisk' practice is unconstitutional, judge rules 12 Aug 2013 A judge ruled on Monday the New York Police Department's "stop-and-frisk" crime-fighting tactic unconstitutional, dealing a stinging rebuke to Mayor Michael Bloomberg [and Bloomberg clone, Wall Street troll Christine Quinn], who had argued the practice drove down the city's crime rate. U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin called it "indirect racial profiling" because it targeted racially defined groups, resulting in the disproportionate and discriminatory stopping of tens of thousands of blacks and Hispanics while the city highest officials "turned a blind eye," she said. "No one should live in fear of being stopped whenever he leaves his home to go about the activities of daily life," Scheindlin wrote in her opinion.

August 12, 2013 by legitgov

Holder seeks to avert mandatory minimum sentences for some low-level drug offenders 12 Aug 2013 Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is set to announce Monday that low-level, nonviolent drug offenders with no ties to gangs or large-scale drug organizations will no longer be charged with offenses that impose severe mandatory sentences. The new Justice Department policy is part of a comprehensive prison reform package that Holder will reveal in a speech to the American Bar Association in San Francisco, according to senior department officials. He is also expected to introduce a policy to reduce sentences for elderly, nonviolent inmates and find alternatives to prison for nonviolent criminals.

Global warming victim: Polar bear found starved to death looked 'like a rug'

Global warming victim: Polar bear found starved to death looked 'like a rug' --The male polar bear seemed healthy when he was seen in April on the Arctic island of Svalbard. It starved to death by July. 06 Aug 2013 The polar bear's emaciated body looked more like "a rug" than one of the world's most powerful predators. For all its hunting prowess, the giant animal appears to have starved to death as it made a desperate journey north on the Arctic island of Svalbard in search of seals. Experts fear polar bears will increasingly suffer a similar fate as global warming melts the sea ice that allows them to hunt for their main source of food. Ian Stirling, who has studied polar bears for nearly 40 years, told The Guardian newspaper that he found the animal on Svalbard in July.

Kennedy Airport workers sickened by toxic gas 11 Aug 2013 Two Kennedy Airport workers at the facility's postal headquarters were sickened Sunday by what Port Authority police said was a highly toxic cleaning chemical. The two employees were working in the airport post office, Building 250, when they opened a package containing organophosphate shipped from China, said Port Authority officials. The chemical is often found in insecticides and industrial-strength chemical cleaning agents and is similar to deadly nerve gases used in chemical warfare, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Israel approves nearly 1,200 new settlement homes 11 Aug 2013 Israel's housing minister on Sunday gave final approval for building nearly 1,200 new settlement apartments on lands the Palestinians want for their state, just three days before U.S.-sponsored talks on the borders of such a state are to begin in Jerusalem.

Negotiator Mohammed Shtayyeh said Israel's latest announcement on promoting settlement plans, the third over the course of a week, "is clear proof that the Israeli government is not serious about the talks."

Snowden's father gets visa, to leave for Russia 'soon' 11 Aug 2013 The father of Edward Snowden, the fugitive whistleblowing former U.S. spy agency contractor, has received a Russian visa and will travel there shortly to see his son, he and his lawyer said on Sunday. Attorney Bruce Fein said in a television appearance that he and Lon Snowden were skeptical about President Barack Obama's pledge to limit government surveillance programs, and they remain doubtful that young Snowden can receive a fair trial in the United States. "We intend to visit with Edward and suggest criminal defense attorneys who have got experience in Espionage Act prosecutions," Fein told ABC News.

Yemenis call U.S. drone strikes an overreaction to al Qaida threat 09 Aug 2013 The United States launching of eight drone strikes in Yemen in the span of 13 days has ignited widespread outrage in the country. The anger over the strikes, which came as an al Qaida-related threat shuttered U.S. embassies and consulates in Yemen and 15 other countries, has overwhelmed attention to the threat itself, which many here view skeptically anyway.

Yemeni Al Qaeda expert casts doubt on terror threat claims 11 Aug 2013 Yemen's foremost Al Qaeda researcher says recent U.S. drone strikes have failed to kill senior leaders of the organization, and he dismisses claims that a plot to bomb a Canadian-owned oil facility was foiled by Yemeni authorities. Abdulrazzaq al-Jamal, a journalist and researcher who has been given exclusive access to the terrorist group’s Yemen branch, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), said the series of drone strikes in the past 12 days have killed 32 people, including low-level foot soldiers and civilians. [The goal of US drone stikes is to kill as many civilians as possible and to ensure that al-CIAduh thrives--to 'necessitate' the expensive perpetual war on [of] terror.]

Port Authority police shut down the facility, where mail is inspected after arriving from overseas, and were continuing to investigate Sunday afternoon.

Pentagon proposes $2.7 billion arms sales to Iraq 11 Aug 2013 Amid the most deadly month in Iraq in five years, the Pentagon has notified Congress of $2.7 billion in new arms sales to the [US-installed] Iraqi government. The latest contracts, that would provide air defense, communications systems and maintenance, would raise to nearly $5 billion the value of arms sales proposals to Iraq sent to Congress over the past two weeks. Congress has 30 days to act to block the contracts, but otherwise the arms sales would enjoy a tacit approval. The biggest contract, which involves the sale of 681 Stinger anti-aircraft missiles and 40 truck-mounted launchers among other advanced equipment, is worth an estimated $2.4 billion.

One blast hit a park in the town of Zubeidiyah, south Baghdad, while others exploded near cafes and shopping centers during the busy afternoon hours.

Radioactive water overruns Fukushima barrier - TEPCO

August 11, 2013 by legitgov

Radioactive water overruns Fukushima barrier - TEPCO 10 Aug 2013 Contaminated Radioactive groundwater accumulating under the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant has risen 60cm above the protective barrier, and is now freely leaking into the Pacific Ocean, the plant's operator TEPCO has admitted. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which is responsible for decommissioning the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, on Saturday said the protective barriers that were installed to prevent the flow of toxic water into the ocean are no longer coping with the groundwater levels, Itar-Tass reports. The contaminated groundwater, which mixes with radioactive leaks seeping out of the plant, has already risen to 60cm above the barriers - the fact which TEPCO calls a major cause of the massive daily leak of toxic substances.

Assange calls Obama reform plans 'victory of sorts' for Snowden 10 Aug 2013 WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has called President Barack Obama's announcement of plans to limit sweeping U.S. government surveillance programs a victory of sorts for fugitive former spy agency contractor Edward Snowden. "Today, the President of the United States validated Edward Snowden's role as a whistleblower by announcing plans to reform America's global surveillance program," Assange said in a statement referring to Obama's announcement on Friday. "Today was a victory of sorts for Edward Snowden and his many supporters," Assange said in the statement, which was posted on the WikiLeaks website on Saturday.

Email service used by Snowden shuts itself down, warns against using US-based companies

August 11, 2013 by legitgov

Email service used by Snowden shuts itself down, warns against using US-based companies 09 Aug 2013 A Texas-based encrypted email service recently revealed to be used by Edward Snowden - Lavabit - announced yesterday it was shutting itself down in order to avoid complying with what it perceives as unjust secret US court orders to provide government access to its users' content. "After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations," the company's founder, Ladar Levinson, wrote in a statement to users posted on the front page of its website. He said the US directive forced on his company "a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit." He chose the latter.

U.S. buying even more hardware for Yemen's military

U.S. buying even more hardware for Yemen's military 09 Aug 2013 U.S. drones have been battering Yemen, killing at least 28 people, and American spy planes watch from overhead. And now, Yemen's skies are looking to get even more crowded. The U.S. Navy is helping the Yemeni air force buy 12 light spy planes, adding to the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of military aid the U.S. has given to the Sana'a regime. The Navy's Light Observation Aircraft for Yemen program aims to buy 12 small planes -- or maybe choppers -- equipped with infrared and night vision cameras and the ability to beam the images collected by those cameras back to a ground station.[Gee, looks like arming the murderous regime in Yemen is sequester-proof. Ditto the Syrian rebels aka cannibals. This is *insane.* Start reading.]
