June 5, 2012 by legitgov

AIG Chief Sees Retirement Age as High as 80 After Crisis 04 Jun 2012 "Retirement ages will have to move to 70, 80 years old," Benmosche, who turned 68 last week, said during a weekend interview at his seaside villa in Dubrovnik, Croatia. "That would make pensions, medical services more affordable. They will keep people working longer and will take that burden off of the youth." American International Group Inc. (AIG) Chief Executive Officer Robert Benmosche said Europe's debt crisis shows governments worldwide must accept that people will have to work more years as life expectancies increase to pay for more US wars for corpora-terrorists, such as AIG.

US top court rejects Blackwater Iraq shooting appeal 04 Jun 2012 The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal by four Blackwater Worldwide security guards mercenaries who argued prosecutors made improper use of their statements to investigators in charging them with killing 14 Iraqi civilians in 2007. The justices refused to review a ruling by a U.S. appeals court in Washington, D.C., that reinstated the criminal charges against the guards for their roles in the Baghdad shooting that outraged Iraqis and strained ties between the two nations.

Military May Be Using Drones In US to Help Police

June 4, 2012 by legitgov

Military May Be Using Drones In US to Help Police --Air Force: 'A court order or warrant is not required in all circumstances.' 04 Jun 2012 A non-classified U.S. Air Force intelligence report obtained by KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO dated April 23, 2012, is helping fuel concern that video and other data inadvertently captured by Air Force drones already flying through U.S. airspace, might end up in the hands of federal or local law enforcement, doing an end-run around normal procedures requiring police to obtain court issued warrants. Data collected by drones accidentally, under the guidelines, can be kept by the military up to three months before being purged and can also be turned over to "another Department of Defense or government agency to whose function it pertains." The Air Force guidelines permit using drones domestically to assist law enforcement. [Be sure to get your Drone Hunting Permit.]

Congress Looking Happy to Reauthorize Broad, Secret Spying Powers

June 4, 2012 by legitgov

Congress Looking Happy to Reauthorize Broad, Secret Spying Powers 31 May 2012 House lawmakers of both stripes in a Thursday hearing seemed amenable to the Obama administration's request to continue giving the government broad, warrantless electronic surveillance powers over American citizens - though some suggested Americans or at least members of Congress deserved to know how many people have been caught in the dragnet. At issue is the FISA Amendments Act, expiring legislation authorizing the government to electronically eavesdrop on Americans' phone calls and e-mails without a probable-cause warrant so long as one of the parties to the communication is outside the United States. The communications may be intercepted "to acquire foreign intelligence information."

Activists converge on Wisconsin for historic recall vote

June 4, 2012 by legitgov

Activists converge on Wisconsin for historic recall vote 03 Jun 2012 Political activists converged on Wisconsin on Sunday to join get-out-the-vote efforts two days before a historic recall election for Republican Governor [Koch brothers' troglodyte] Scott Walker that is seen as a test for November's presidential race.

Some observers are calling the June 5 vote the second most important U.S. election of the year.

June 4, 2012 by legitgov

Oil industry opened the checkbooks to influence Alaska legislators 30 May 2012 The oil industry spent more than $1 million lobbying in Alaska as it tried to lower state oil taxes this year, including a $3,120 dinner in Washington, D.C., when the Alaska Legislature shut down for lawmakers' "Energy Break" trip to the nation's capital. The spending, which ranged from wining and dining Alaska legislators to statewide advertising campaigns, came as the industry and Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell made a heavy but unsuccessful push to convince the Alaska Legislature to slash how much the state taxes the profits made by the oil companies.

But former high-ranking officials of the German defence ministry told Der Spiegel that the government always assumed Israel was putting nuclear warheads on the Dolphin-class vessels.

Kirk co-sponsored bills helping ex-girlfriend's clients 01 Jun 2012 U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk (R) was a leading sponsor of congressional legislation that has meant $5.3 million for two clients of his onetime girlfriend, and he is backing another bill that could bring millions of dollars to a third group she represented.

Ex-Blackwater executives finger CIA in weapons trial 02 Jun 2012 Five ex-Blackwater executives, facing federal firearms charges in connection with a gift of weaponry to a Middle Eastern monarch, have come up with a new explanation for how it occurred: It was a CIA operation. In court papers filed last month in Raleigh, the defendants say the gift of five guns to King Abdullah II of Jordan during a royal visit to Blackwater's Moyock, N.C., headquarters in March 2005 was requested, directed and authorized by the Central Intelligence Agency. Attorneys for the five have filed declarations from two retired CIA officials, including a former Jordan station chief, who say they are familiar with the circumstances of the king's visit and would be willing to testify about it.

Barack Obama 'ordered Stuxnet cyber attack on Iran'

June 3, 2012 by legitgov

Barack Obama 'ordered Stuxnet cyber attack on Iran' 01 Jun 2012 President Barack Obama ordered the Stuxnet attack on Iran as part of a wave of cyber sabotage and espionage against the would-be nuclear power, according to a new book citing senior Washington sources. The computer virus, aimed at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, was designed to damage centrifuges by making covert adjustments to the machines controlling them. It formed part of a "wave" of digital attacks on Iran codenamed "Olympic Games" and was created with the assistance of a secret Israeli intelligence unit, The New York Times said in a report based on a book chronicling secret wars under the Obama administration. The report confirms the suspicions of computer security experts who detected and forensically examined Stuxnet in 2010.

In case of military aggression against Iran, there is no spot in Israel that does not fall within the range of the Iranian missiles, he added, IRNA reported.

Gov. Rick Scott Ignores DOJ Demand to End Voter Purge 02 Jun 2012 Gov. Rick Scott (R) plans to ignore a Department of Justice demand that his administration stop purging its voter rolls in violation of federal law. The Huffington Post reports that Scott ordered election officials to continue the purge, even in the face of evidence that a disproportionate amount of names on the list are voters of color. In an initial list of 3000 voters the state suspects are non-citizens, blacks and Latinos were disproportionately represented. Analysis by the Miami Herald found nearly 60 percent of the people on the list to be Latino despite the fact that Latinos constitute just 13 percent of the state's electorate.

Canada 'complicit' in torture, says UN report --UN body says changes to Canada's immigration laws risk human rights violations 01 Jun 2012 In a biting report issued Friday, the United Nations Committee Against Torture condemns what it calls Canadian "complicity" in torture and human rights violations of Muslim men caught up in the post-9/11 security net. The committee's report condemns Canada's practice, during the Afghan combat mission which ended last year, of handing prisoners over to Afghan security forces despite a "substantial risk" that they would be tortured. In addition, the UN committee recommends that Canada promptly approve the transfer of Omar Khadr from Guantanamo to Canadian custody...

ANNA News Journalist Marat Musin about Houla Massacre

June 2, 2012 by legitgov

ANNA News Journalist Marat Musin about Houla Massacre (Translation from original text.) 31 May 2012 On the weekend of May 25, 2012, at about 2 PM, big groups of fighters attacked and captured the town of Al-Hula of the Homs province... The town was attacked from the northeast by groups of bandits and mercenaries, numbering up to 700 people... When the rebels seized the lower checkpoint in the center of town and located next to the local police department, they began to sweep all the families loyal to the authorities in neighboring houses, including the elderly, women and children. Several families of Al-Sayed were killed, including 20 young children and the family of Abdul Razak. Many of those killed were "guilty" of the fact that they dared to change from Sunnis to Shiites. The people were killed with knives and shot at point blank range. Then they presented the murdered to the UN and the international community as victims of bombings by the Syrian army, something that was not verified by any marks on their bodies... Note that once, the exact same provocation failed at Shumar (Homs) and 49 militants and women and children were killed, when it was organized just before a visit of Kofi Annan. The last provocation was immediately exposed as soon as it became known that the bodies of the previously kidnapped belonged to Alawites. This provocation also contained serious inconsistencies - the names of those killed were from people loyal to the authorities, there were no traces of bombings, etc.

Feds Want Warrantless Spying Loss Overturned, Saying Law Can't Touch Them

June 2, 2012 by legitgov

Feds Want Warrantless Spying Loss Overturned, Saying Law Can't Touch Them 31 May 2012 The Obama administration is set to argue to a federal appeals court Friday that the government may breach, with impunity, domestic spying laws adopted in the wake of President Richard M. Nixon's Watergate scandal. The case tests whether Americans may seek recourse or monetary damages when a sitting U.S. president bypasses Congress's ban on warrantless spying on Americans - in this instance when President [sic] George W. Bush authorized his secret, warrantless domestic spying program in the aftermath of the September 2001 terror attacks... The government appealed to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and arguments before a three-judge panel are set to be heard in Pasadena, California, this Friday.

June 2, 2012 by legitgov

Judge Orders Zimmerman to Jail for Lying to Court 01 Jun 2012 Accused murderer George Zimmerman must return to jail within 48 hours, after a judge found he and his wife lied about their finances at a bail hearing in April. Zimmerman "can't sit back and obtain the benefit of a lower bond based upon those material falsehoods," Judge Kenneth Lester said in making his ruling, the Associated Press reports. In arguing for George Zimmerman's bail to be revoked, prosecutors asserted his wife Shelly "flat-out lied" to get a lower bail. In addition, Zimmerman and his wife "spoke in code to hide what they were doing" during jail telephone calls, prosecutors alleged.
