August 24, 2012 by legitgov

Judge orders release of US Marine detained for Facebook posts --They detained him without charge and admitted him to a local hospital for 'evaluation.' 23 Aug 2012 On the basis that there was zero reason to detain a retired Marine and commit him to a medical facility for psychiatric evaluation, a Virginia judge has demanded that Brandon Raub be released from custody immediately. Raub, 26, had his home visited one week earlier by FBI, Secret Service and local law enforcement agents who expressed concern over a series of Facebook posts he had made on his public social networking profile.

Some 'hit by police bullets' in Empire State Building shooting

August 24, 2012 by legitgov

Some 'hit by police bullets' in Empire State Building shooting --Police, already on the scene, were actually 'anti-terrorism units.' By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 24 Aug 2012 Some struck in NYC's Empire State Building shooting were 'wounded or grazed' [*or killed*] by NYPD bullets. Nine bystanders were injured by 'stray' (read: police) fire. There are conflicting reports on whether Jeffrey Johnson, 53, actually shot at police before the counter-terrorism police officers fired at him. The gunman is among two dead in NYC shootings. [So the purpose of this particular op was to get people acclimated to the notion that the police -- and/or anti-terrorism units, DHS, or other federal agencies -- can open fire on crowds and we're supposed to accept such an action as 'necessary.' --LRP]

New poll, data point to vast social polarization in US

August 24, 2012 by walden9

New poll, data point to vast social polarization in US 24 Aug 2012 A survey released August 22 by the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C. adds details to the picture of an American society divided sharply along class lines and dominated by growing social inequality. "Fewer, Poorer, Gloomier: The Lost Decade of the Middle Class" is based on the results of a national poll supplemented by data from the US Census Bureau and Federal Reserve Board of Governors. The study begins by noting that on the eve of the 2012 elections the Democrats and Republicans are attempting to court a middle class "that has endured a lost decade for economic well-being." Since 2000, it "has shrunk in size, fallen backward in income and wealth, and shed some--but by no means all--of its characteristic faith in the future."

Romney Said to Use Secretive Data Mining

August 24, 2012 by walden9

Romney Said to Use Secretive Data Mining 24 Aug 2012 Mitt Romney's success in raising hundreds of millions of dollars in the costliest presidential race ever can be traced in part to a secretive data-mining project that sifts through Americans' personal information--including their purchasing history and church attendance--to identify new and likely, wealthy donors, the Associated Press has learned. For the data-mining project, the Republican candidate has quietly employed since at least June a little-known but successful analytics firm that previously performed marketing work for a colleague tied to Bain & Co., the management-consulting firm that Mr. Romney once led.

August 24, 2012 by walden9

US drone attack kills 18 in North Waziristan, despite Pakistan protests 24 Aug 2012 American missiles targeting suspected militants in Pakistan along the Afghan border killed 18 today, just one day after Pakistani authorities met with a United States diplomat to protest drone strikes in the country. The US drone campaign has been a serious contributor of tension between the US and Pakistan, and today's attacks were the fourth in one week, reports the Associated Press. All of this week’s attacks took place in North Waziristan, an especially restive area where the Pakistani military has yet to conduct any operations against militants. [Obama: drone-bombing you can believe in!]

Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said that two officers fired a total of 14 rounds and that he believed some [actually, all] of the shooting victims had been shot by the officers "based on the number of people shot and the capacity of" the gunman's weapon.

France backs Syria no-fly zone

August 24, 2012 by legitgov

France backs Syria no-fly zone 24 Aug 2012 France indicated Thursday that it would consider supporting a partial no-fly zone over Syria, turning the screws on President Bashar al-Assad's government as fighting rages in Damascus and second city Aleppo. French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian however warned that shutting all of Syria's air space would mean "going to war" and would require a willing international coalition that has not yet materialized. Speaking on France 24 television, Le Drian called for considering a partial closure of Syria's air space, as suggested by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

US Navy sending back warship to Persian Gulf 23 Aug 2012 The US Navy has cut short home leave for crew of aircraft carrier USS Stennis by four months to send the warship back to the Middle East and Persian Gulf next week. US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta notified the USS Stennis crew in Seattle on Wednesday that they are needed in the Middle East region, following the requests forwarded by the US Central Command.

U.S. sends aircraft carrier back to Gulf to face Iran, Syria 23 Aug 2012 The U.S. Navy is cutting short home leave for the crew of one of its aircraft carriers and sending them back to the Middle East next week to counter any [fabricated] threat from Iran, according to the official Navy News Service. Defence Secretary Leon Panetta told sailors aboard the USS Stennis in their home port of Seattle on Wednesday they were needed back in the Middle East soon, after approving calls from the U.S. Central Command for Stennis to return to the region. "Obviously, Iran is one of those threats," the U.S. military news service quoted Panetta as saying during a send-off event at a military base on the U.S. West Coast. "Secondly, it is the turmoil in Syria," he said. "We're obviously following that closely as well." ['Following?' LOL. Try *fomenting.*]

Ties to Obama Aided in Access for Big Utility 23 Aug 2012 Early in the Obama administration, a lobbyist for the Illinois-based energy producer Exelon Corporation proudly called it "the president's utility."

We are Women Against Rape but we do not want Julian Assange extradited

August 23, 2012 by walden9

We are Women Against Rape but we do not want Julian Assange extradited --For decades we have campaigned to get rapists caught, charged and convicted. But the pursuit of Assange is political. By Katrin Axelsson and Lisa Longstaff 23 Aug 2012 When Julian Assange was first arrested, we were struck by the unusual zeal with which he was being pursued for rape allegations. It seems even clearer now, that the allegations against him are a smokescreen behind which a number of governments are trying to clamp down on WikiLeaks for having audaciously revealed to the public their secret planning of wars and occupations with their attendant rape, murder and destruction.

He was the most conservative candidate in the field - and the most unpredictable one... Here's how they [Democrats] pushed the Akin candidacy during the primary.

No one reported for work at either of the mine's two shafts.

Record radiation found off Japan 23 Aug 2012 Record levels of radioactive caesium were detected in fish caught within 20km of Japan's damaged Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, news reports said yesterday. The operator Tokyo Electric Power Co said Tuesday it had found 25,800 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive caesium in greenling, 258 times higher than the government safety standard. Fishing in waters off the plant has been voluntarily restricted since the nuclear disaster at the plant, which went into meltdown after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Japan's PM meets leaders of anti-nuke protests but rejects demand that plants stay shuttered 22 Aug 2012 Japan’s prime minister met for the first time with leaders of weekly anti-nuclear protests Wednesday but rejected their demand that two recently restarted nuclear plants should be shut again. Tens of thousands of people have been gathering every Friday night outside Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda's office compound to protest against nuclear power because of safety concerns set off by last year's the ongoing Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear crisis. The 11 protest leaders were allowed into the complex for the first time since they started chanting anti-nuclear slogans outside the tightly guarded building in April.

Japan nuclear protesters meet premier

August 23, 2012 by legitgov

Japan nuclear protesters meet premier 22 Aug 2012 For the first time since antinuclear rallies began months ago outside Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda's office, a dozen protesters were allowed inside Wednesday for a half-hour meeting that the fledgling movement hailed as a victory. The meeting comes at a time of growing antinuclear sentiment in Japan, and with elections expected this year. Noda, who angered demonstrators by dismissing their weekly rallies as "loud noise," had been under public pressure to meet with them face to face. The demonstrators are calling for a shutdown of the reactors at the Oi nuclear power plant in western Japan - the first reactors to be restarted since the nuclear accident at Fukushima in March 2011 - and for Japan to decommission its 54 other reactors. [No, Noda. 'Loud noise' would have been the case if protesters stormed the building and opened fire. (Well, some might think: If you're gettin' blamed for making 'loud noise' -- you might as well make some! <g>)]

US Scholars: Israeli Extremists Should be Designated Terrorists

US Scholars: Israeli Extremists Should be Designated Terrorists 22 Aug 2012 Amid a rising spate of Jewish extremist violence in Israel and the occupied West Bank, two prominent US Middle East scholars are urging the United States to officially designate as terrorists those Israeli extremists who perpetrate terrorist violence against Palestinian civilians, Israeli citizens and even moderate elements of the settler movement. The US, "much like Israel... should consider designating individuals involved in acts of violence against Palestinians as terrorists," Daniel Byman and Natan Sachs, researchers at the Brookings Institution Saban Center, wrote in the current issue of Foreign Afffairs.

Despite Assange claims, U.S. has no current case against him

Despite Assange claims, U.S. has no current case against him --U.S. investigating, but has not issued indictment 22 Aug 2012 Despite claims by Julian Assange that Washington is plotting to extradite and execute him, U.S. and European government sources say the United States has issued no criminal charges against the WikiLeaks founder and has launched no attempt to extradite him. Moreover, Obama administration officials remain divided over the wisdom of prosecuting Assange, the sources said, and the likelihood of U.S. criminal charges against him is probably receding rather than growing. The Obama administration has said Assange's immediate fate is in the hands of Britain, Sweden and Ecuador.

Isaac churns in the Caribbean, threatens Republican Convention 23 Aug 2012 Tropical Storm Isaac spun over the Caribbean Sea and could become a hurricane on Thursday as it moves on a track that would put it off the coast of Florida on Monday, the opening day of the Republican National Convention in Tampa. As the center of Isaac moved away from the Leeward Islands, the storm prompted hurricane warnings in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Isaac was centered about 270 miles southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico, late Wednesday night, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Secretive Police Unit Sought to Map Terrorist Havens in City, Official Testifies 22 Aug 2012 Despite being dispatched to hundreds of places across New York City where would-be terrorists might congregate, an eight-member Police Department unit that eavesdropped on countless conversations has not generated a lead or an investigation in at least six years, a police chief testified in a deposition unsealed Monday... The plaintiffs' lawyers [in a civil rights lawsuit that has been going on for decades] are asking a federal judge to find that the Police Department's counterterrorism investigation violated the longstanding Handschu Consent Decree, which resulted in guidelines for police investigations of political groups and the monitoring of public events.

Racial Comment by Republican Official in Ohio Rekindles Battle Over Early Voting

August 23, 2012 by legitgov

Racial Comment by Republican Official in Ohio Rekindles Battle Over Early Voting 23 Aug 2012 A battle over early voting hours in Ohio is flaring again after a top adviser to Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, this week made remarks that Democrats cast as racist, and the Republican secretary of state suspended two local election officials who voted to extend balloting hours in one county. The friction detonated this week when Doug Preisse, the influential Republican Party chairman of Franklin County, which includes the state capital, Columbus, was quoted in The Columbus Dispatch newspaper as saying, "I guess I really actually feel we shouldn't contort the voting process to accommodate the urban -- read African-American -- voter turnout machine."

US drone strikes target rescuers in Pakistan - and the west stays silent

US drone strikes target rescuers in Pakistan - and the west stays silent --Attacking rescuers - a tactic long deemed by the US a hallmark of terrorism - is now routinely used by the Obama administration By Glenn Greenwald 20 Aug 2012 The US government has long maintained, reasonably enough, that a defining tactic of terrorism is to launch a follow-up attack aimed at those who go to the scene of the original attack to rescue the wounded and remove the dead. Morally, such methods have also been widely condemned by the west as a hallmark of savagery. Yet, as was demonstrated yet again this weekend in Pakistan, this has become one of the favorite tactics of the very same US government.

Michael Baumgartner (R-6, Spokane), who's running for US Senate against two-term Democratic incumbent US Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA), appears to have sent me a bizarre email late last night.

Take a good look and then go fuck yourself.

Agencies warn of possible anarchist activity at conventions 22 Aug 2012 Law enforcement officials are concerned about possible violence by anarchist extremists at the upcoming Republican and Democratic national conventions, according to an intelligence bulletin prepared by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security. The bulletin, which was obtained by CNN, says that anarchists could try to use improvised explosive devices.

Texas Judge Preparing for 'Civil War' If Obama Is Re-Elected 22 Aug 2012 A Texas leader is warning of what he calls a 'civil war' and possible invasion of United Nations troops if President Barack Obama is re-elected. Lubbock County Judge Tom Head is convinced that Mr. Obama winning a second term would lead to a revolt by the American people, and he is pushing a tax increase for the District Attorney's Office and the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office. He says the money is needed to 'beef up' its resources in case President Obama wins the November election.

Sabu Gets 6-Month Sentencing Delay for Continuing to Help Feds 21 Aug 2012 Sabu, the hacker who turned informant on the rampaging Anonymous offshoots Antisec and LulzSec, is getting a six-month reprieve from being sentenced on 12 counts of violating federal law, due to his continued cooperation with the feds, prosecutors told a court Tuesday. Hector Xavier Monsegur, a 28-year-old New Yorker who used the online name "Sabu," has been working undercover for the feds since the FBI arrested him without fanfare last June. [Traitor] Monsegur provided agents with information that helped them arrest several suspected members of LulzSec and Antisec, including two men from Great Britain, two from Ireland and an American in Chicago.
