October 2, 2012 by legitgov

Nuclear plant repairs could hit $3.4 billion 01 Oct 2012 Repairs to a crippled nuclear plant that was a key factor in the Duke Energy-Progress Energy merger tempest could cost up to $3.4 billion, more than double previous estimates, Duke said Monday. The July 2 merger brought Progress's Crystal River plant in Florida into Duke's nuclear fleet. The plant has been shuttered since 2009, when a project to replace parts inside its thick reactor containment structure led to separating concrete.

October 2, 2012 by legitgov

Time for a ban on the commercial trade in polar bear parts --A breakthrough for polar bears if we can mobilize today 01 Oct 2012 Last Friday the Russian Federation sent a letter to the Obama Administration promising that Russia would support a resolution to ban the international polar bear fur trade if the U.S. government introduces it. Now we must prevail on the Administration to seize this extraordinary opportunity -- and we must do it quickly. The deadline for our government to submit a resolution is this Thursday, October 4. The White House needs to hear from you immediately. [Click here to sign, and please forward this link to your friends and lists.]

Drones Will Soon Be Able to Kill During War Without Human Assistance - Professor

October 2, 2012 by legitgov

Drones Will Soon Be Able to Kill During War Without Human Assistance - Professor 01 Oct 2012 Drones could soon operate without the help of humans. Agence France-Presse is reporting that the Pentagon wants its drones to be more autonomous, so that they can run with little to no assistance from people. "Before they were blind, deaf and dumb," Mark Maybury, chief scientist for the U.S. Air Force, told AFP. "Now we're beginning to make them to see, hear and sense." Ronald Arkin, a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, believes that drones will soon be able to kill enemies on their own independently.

October 1, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Army's secret Cold War experiments on St. Louisans --'This was a violation of all medical ethics, all international codes, and the military's own policy at that time.' 25 Sep 2012 The KSDK I-Team independently verified that the spraying of zinc cadmium sulfide did take place in St. Louis on thousands of unsuspecting citizens. What is unclear is whether the Army added a radioactive material to the compound as sociologist Lisa Martino-Taylor's research implies. Army archive pictures show how the tests were done in Corpus Christi, Texas in the 1960s. In Texas, planes were used to drop the chemical [the precursor to chemtrails]. But in St. Louis, the Army placed chemical sprayers on buildings and station wagons.

According to the security officials, several drones were flying in the area at the time of the strike.

October 1, 2012 by legitgov

Quebec government hints at long-term fracking ban 27 Sep 2012 The new Parti Quebecois government hasn’t wasted any time hinting about a long-term ban on the shale gas industry. Quebec's new natural-resources minister, Martine Ouellet, says she doesn't believe the controversial [insane] method of extracting natural gas from shale, known as "fracking," can ever be done safely. She made the remarks Thursday on her way into her first cabinet meeting, less than 24 hours after she was named to cabinet.

Revealed: Army scientists secretly sprayed St Louis with radioactive particles for YEARS to test chemical warfare technology 29 Sep 2012 The United States Military conducted top secret experiments on the citizens of St. Louis, Missouri, for years, exposing them to radioactive compounds, a researcher has claimed. While it was known that the government sprayed 'harmless' zinc cadmium silfide particles over the general population in St Louis, Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor, a sociologist at St. Louis Community College, claims that a radioactive additive was also mixed with the compound. She has accrued detailed descriptions as well as photographs of the spraying which exposed the unwitting public, predominantly in low-income and minority communities, to radioactive particles.

U.S. military death toll from war in Afghanistan reaches 2,000 30 Sep 2012 The U.S. military death toll in Afghanistan reached the grim milestone of 2,000 over the weekend with an attack that killed a soldier and a retired NYPD sergeant. Kevin O'Rourke, a former Emergency Service Unit sergeant, was killed Saturday during an intense firefight in eastern Wardak Province. The U.S. soldier killed in the ambush, whose name was not immediately released, was assigned to NATO's International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF, officials said.

Rogue Afghan soldier kills US troops, compatriots 30 Sep 2012 An Afghan soldier turned his gun on American troops at a checkpoint in the country's east, killing two Americans and two fellow members of Afghanistan's army in a shooting that marked both the continuance of a disturbing trend of insider attacks and the 2,000th US troop death in the long-running war, officials said on Sunday. Saturday's shooting took place at an Afghan army checkpoint just outside a joint US-Afghan base in Wardak province, said Shahidullah Shahid, a provincial government spokesman. At least two Afghan soldiers died, he said.

Vote counting company tied to Romney

Vote counting company tied to Romney 27 Sep 2012 Bain Capital alumni, now raising big money as Mitt Romney bundlers are also in the electronic voting machine business. This appears to be a repeat of the infamous former CEO of Diebold, Wally O'Dell, who raised money for Bush while his company supplied voting machines and election management software in the 2004 election. In all 234 counties of Texas, the entire states of Hawaii and Oklahoma, half of Washington and Colorado, and certain counties in swing state Ohio, votes will be cast on eSlate and ePollbook machines made by Hart Intercivic. Hart Intercivic machines have famously failed in Tarrant County (Ft. Worth), adding 10,000 non-existent votes.

Gaddafi was killed by French secret serviceman on orders of Nicolas Sarkozy, sources claim 30 Sep 2012 A French secret serviceman acting on the express orders of Nicolas Sarkozy is suspected of murdering Colonel Gaddafi, it was sensationally claimed today. He is said to have infiltrated a violent mob mutilating the captured Libyan leader last year and shot him in the head. The motive, according to well-placed sources in the North African country, was to stop Gaddafi being interrogated about his highly suspicious links with Sarkozy, who was President of France at the time.

GOP Quietly Hires Firm Tied to Voter Fraud Scandal for Work in Battleground States

September 30, 2012 by legitgov

GOP Quietly Hires Firm Tied to Voter Fraud Scandal for Work in Battleground States 26 Sep 2012 The Palm Beach Post reported last night that a Florida Republican Party contractor turned in at least 106 "questionable" registration firms, with "similar signatures" and wrong addresses... The contractor in Florida is called Strategic Allied Consulting, a business entity created a few months ago and registered online by a former Arizona Republican Party director named Nathan Sproul. Sproul, a consultant based in Tempe, is infamous for accusations that his firms have committed fraud by tampering with Democratic voter registration forms and suppressing votes. Sproul was hired by the Romney campaign for a period of five months that began last November and ended in March. But there's evidence that the payments continued, only to a different name.

'Questionable' Palm Beach County voter registration forms forwarded to state attorney for review

September 30, 2012 by legitgov

'Questionable' Palm Beach County voter registration forms forwarded to state attorney for review 25 Sep 2012 The Republican Party of Florida is dumping a firm it paid more than $1.3 million to register new voters, after Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher flagged 106 "questionable" registration applications turned in by the contractor this month. Bucher asked the state attorney's office to review the applications... because she said her staff had questions about similar-looking signatures, missing information and wrong addresses on the forms. The state GOP hired Strategic Allied Consultants of Glen Allen, Va., for "voter registration services" and get-out-the-vote activities [to steal the 2012 election, as they did in 2000 (Florida) and in 2004 (Ohio)]. The firm got identical payments of $667,598 in July and August.

The Banker Who'd Cut Social Security and Medicare - and May Become Obama's Next Treasury Secretary

September 30, 2012 by legitgov

The Banker Who'd Cut Social Security and Medicare - and May Become Obama's Next Treasury Secretary 17 Sep 2012 Why is the Administration talking about replacing Treasury Secretary Geithner with a wealthy banker who wants to cut Social Security and Medicare, would lower taxes on his fellow rich people, and is trying to impose European-style job-destroying austerity on this country? There was some consternation when the Administration floated a trial balloon which was prominently picked up by the Washington Post's Ezra Klein, whose headline asked "Will Erskine Bowles be our next Treasury Secretary?" Klein wrote that "as of today, I'm ready to name a frontrunner, at least if Barack Obama is re-elected: Erskine Bowles." He also notes that Paul Ryan called Bowles "my favorite Democrat." ...There are reasonable compromises to be made in the name of governance. And there are those that aren't. [Barack Obama is poised to complete his destruction of the Democratic Party if he is reelected - by moving the Party far to the right; demoralization of the Democratic Party will depress voter turnout for years. Notice that Obama is silent on the imposition of GOP voter-suppression laws across the country? --LRP]

The most dangerous drug in the world: Scopolamine can block free will, wipe memory and even kill

September 30, 2012 by legitgov

The most dangerous drug in the world: 'Devil's Breath' chemical from Colombia can block free will, wipe memory and even kill --Within minutes, victims are like 'zombies' - coherent, but with no free will 12 May 2012 The drug is called scopolamine, but is colloquially known as 'The Devil's Breath,' and is derived from a particular type of tree common to South America. Demencia Black, a drug dealer in the capital of Bogota, said the drug is frightening for the simplicity in which it can be administered. Black said that one gram of Scopolamine is similar to a gram of cocaine, but later called it 'worse than anthrax.' In high doses, it is lethal. [Right, in addition to CIAciopaths committing war crimes by forcing Scopolamine on prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Scopolamine was likely administered to James Holmes by his handler. --LRP]

U.S. Forcibly Drugged All Guantanamo Prisoners With Scopolamine - Documents

September 30, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Forcibly Drugged All Guantanamo Prisoners With Scopolamine - Documents 30 Sep 2012 New evidence has emerged that all Guantanamo Bay prisoners, including David Hicks, were drugged involuntarily with a substance that has a long history as a truth serum. Recently declassified US documents revealing medical procedures have shown that scopolamine was administered to all detainees taken to the Cuban detention centre. Documents... reveal that the rationale for the drug's use on all detainees was to prevent motion sickness. However, US military experts have said that scopolamine is not recommended for motion sickness because of its severe side effects. The Sun-Herald revealed this month that Mr Hicks and other prisoners were drugged against their will with unknown substances and that detainees' medical records were incomplete, with the names and dosages of drugs removed.

Hicks forced to take high drug doses in Guantanamo

September 30, 2012 by legitgov

Hicks forced to take high drug doses in Guantanamo 16 Sep 2102 Guantanamo Bay prisoners, including David Hicks, were forced to take high dosages of anti-malaria drug mefloquine despite showing no signs of the disease, a practice likened to "pharmacological waterboarding" by a US military doctor. Questions have been raised about whether the mass administration of the drug to detainees was a secret, illegal experiment after a medical journal article last month by an army doctor, Major Remington Nevin, highlighted the "inappropriate use" of the drug and asked if its use had been motivated by the drug's psychotic side effects... Dr Nevin also warned high doses of the drug could cause brain injuries. Former Guantanamo guard Brandon Neely also supplied an affidavit for the trial saying detainees were beaten for refusing to take the drugs. He also claimed doctors never told detainees what drugs they were given. What drugs were administered in some cases may never be known.

British Labour leader vows to break up banks 30 Sep 2012 Britain's opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband vowed to break-up the country's biggest banks if his party came to power at the next general election, in an interview with a Sunday newspaper. Miliband, whose party enjoys a 10-point lead in the latest polls, told the Observer newspaper that he would split the banks' "casino" investment operations from their high-street arms. "Either they can do it themselves, which frankly is not what has happened over the past year, or the next Labour government will, by law, break up retail and investment banks," he warned.

Guantanamo's last Western detainee returned to Canada 29 Sep 2012 The youngest prisoner and last Westerner held in the Guantanamo military base, Omar Khadr, was sent to finish his sentence in his native Canada on Saturday, the Canadian government said. Canadian Public Safety Minister [sociopath] Vic Toews said that Khadr, who was a 15-year-old fighting in Afghanistan when captured in 2002, had been flown from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to a military base in Trenton, Ontario and transferred to the province's Millhaven maximum-security prison. Khadr's case has been controversial both in Canada and abroad given his age when he was captured, the nature of his detention and hearing, and the reluctance of Canadian officials to accept his return.

Ecuador will care for Julian Assange in embassy if WikiLeaks founder falls ill 28 Sep 2012 Ecuador is prepared to set up an operating theatre in its London embassy if Julian Assange needs urgent medical attention and the UK is not prepared to guarantee his safe passage to a hospital and back, according to the Ecuadorean foreign minister. As the WikiLeaks founder spent his 100th day in the Ecuadorean embassy, where he has sought refuge from extradition to Sweden to face allegations of sexual crimes, the country's foreign minister met his British counterpart, William Hague, to ask about contingency plans should Assange fall ill. Hague told Ricardo Patino that he would consult officials and lawyers and respond within a few days, but a British official commented: "Maybe the Ecuadoreans should have thought of that before they granted him asylum." The official added that British police were under obligation to arrest Assange as soon as he stepped out of the embassy.

Warrantless Electronic Surveillance Surges Under Obama Justice Department --Including Internet and email information requests, more than 40,000 people were targeted in 2011. 28 Sep 2012 The Obama administration has overseen a sharp increase in the number of people subjected to warrantless electronic surveillance of their telephone, email and Facebook accounts by federal law enforcement agencies, new documents released by the American Civil Liberties Union on Friday revealed. The documents, released by the ACLU after a months-long legal battle with the Department of Justice, show that in the last two years, more people were spied on by the government than in the preceding decade.

Six Florida counties investigating 'hundreds' of cases of suspected voter fraud by GOP consulting firm 27 Sep 2012 Election officials in six Florida counties are investigating what appears to be "hundreds" of cases of suspected voter fraud by a GOP consulting firm that has been paid nearly $3 million by the Republican National Committee to register Republican voters in five key battleground states, state officials tell NBC. The allegations of suspected voter fraud committed by Strategic Allied Consulting of Tempe, Arizona spread Thursday to counties throughout Florida. At the same time, the Republican National Committee said it had severed its ties to the firm. "We have heard from supervisors in six counties that they have irregularities in voter registration," said Chris Cate, spokesman for the Florida Department of State, which oversees the state's division of elections.

Romney Health Care Plan Nearly Doubles Family Insurance Costs: Study

Romney Health Care Plan Nearly Doubles Family Insurance Costs: Study 28 Sep 2012 Under Mitt Romney's proposed health care plan, American families buying non-group health insurance would pay nearly double what they pay under Obamacare, according to a new study by Families USA entitled "ObamaCare versus RomneyCare versus RomneyCandidateCare." That includes both comparative insurance premium payments as well as out-of-pocket expenses. The study finds that while RomneyCare in Massachusetts bears many similarities to Obamacare, neither are very similar to what Romney's health care plan would look like if he were elected... By 2016, 41.9 million more people would be uninsured under Romney than with Obamacare.

US calls Assange 'enemy of state'

September 28, 2012 by legitgov

US calls Assange 'enemy of state' 27 Sep 2012 The US military has designated Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as enemies of the United States - the same legal category as the al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] terrorist network and the Taliban insurgency. Declassified US Air Force counter-intelligence documents, released under US freedom-of-information laws, reveal that military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks supporters may be at risk of being charged with "communicating with the enemy", a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death. The documents, some originally classified "Secret/NoForn" - not releasable to non-US nationals - record a probe by the air force's Office of Special Investigations into a cyber systems analyst based in Britain who allegedly expressed support for WikiLeaks and attended pro-Assange demonstrations in London.

Romney Advisers: Bring Back Torture

September 28, 2012 by legitgov

Romney Advisers: Bring Back Torture [They already did. Have you seen the campaign?] 28 Sep 2012 Mitt Romney's advisers have privately urged him to "rescind and replace President Obama's executive order" and permit secret "enhanced interrogation techniques against high-value detainees that are safe, legal and effective in generating intelligence to save American lives," according to an internal Romney campaign memorandum. "We'll use enhanced interrogation techniques which go beyond those that are in the military handbook right now," he said at a news conference in Charleston, S.C., in December. The Romney campaign document, obtained by The New York Times, is a five-page policy paper titled "Interrogation Techniques." Last December, Mr. Romney was asked about waterboarding at a town-hall meeting in Charleston... At the news conference afterward, a reporter pressed him to say whether he thought waterboarding was torture, and Mr. Romney replied, "I don't." [CLG believes that Obusha's killer drone strikes also constitute torture, and torture still exists at US owned and operated prisons both around the world and on US soil.]
