"Panic, anxiety, just a couple of the words we've heard from Egyptian citizens as they wait for answers," CBC reporter Nahlah Ayed tweeted from Cairo.

Reports indicated that the plane was hindered in navigating Western Europe as France and Portugal would not allow the La Paz-bound plane to enter their airspace.

The revamped bill, which started as a Sharia Law ban sent over from the House, wasn't even available to the public online until just before the floor debate started.

Fukushima Plant Operator Intends to Restart Reactors Elsewhere

July 3, 2013 by legitgov

Fukushima Plant Operator Intends to Restart Reactors Elsewhere 03 Jul 2013 The operator of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant said Tuesday that it would ask regulators to allow it to restart two reactors at a separate site in eastern Japan, even as problems with the company's 'cleanup' in Fukushima continue to multiply. The request by the operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, is expected to be among a flurry of such appeals from utilities seeking to restart reactors now that the government has approved tougher safety guidelines. The Tokyo Electric Power Company, known as Tepco, said it would soon apply to restart two of the seven reactors at its Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant, the world's biggest nuclear power station by capacity. That plant, about 140 miles northeast of Tokyo, sits atop fault lines and was damaged in a 2007 quake caused by another fault.

Egypt army plans for after Mursi as clock ticks 02 Jul 2013 Egypt's army has plans to push Mohamed Mursi aside and suspend the constitution after an all but impossible ultimatum it has given the Islamist president expires in less than 24 hours, military sources told Reuters on Tuesday. Condemning a coup against their first freely elected leader, tens of thousands of Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood supporters took to the streets, clashing with opponents in several towns. But they appeared to be dwarfed by anti-government protesters who turned out in their hundreds of thousands across the nation. Troops were on alert after warnings of a potential civil war.

Edward Snowden seeks asylum in 20 nations, but gets no immediate takers 02 Jul 2013 NSA leaker Edward Snowden's best chance of finding refuge outside the United States may hinge on the president of Venezuela, who was in Moscow on Tuesday meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela told Russian reporters on Tuesday that his country has not received an application for asylum from Snowden and dodged the question of whether he would take Snowden with him when he left. But Maduro also defended the former National Security Agency systems analyst who released sensitive documents on U.S. intelligence-gathering operations.

Syria: 3,500 tons of weapons already sent to 'rebels,' says Lord Ashdown

Syria: 3,500 tons of weapons already sent to 'rebels,' says Lord Ashdown 02 Jul 2013 Lord Ashdown, the former Liberal Democrat leader, spoke out against arming Syria's 'rebels' and called for pressure to be put on Qatar and Saudi Arabia to cut off funding for arms. "They do not need arms. It is an unchallenged figure that 3,500 tons of arms have been shipped in by way of Croatia with the assistance of the CIA, funded by the Saudis, funded by the Qataris, going almost exclusively to the more jihadist groups," the former international high representative for Bosnia said in a debate. "I know where those weapons are coming from. They are the weapons left over from the Bosnian war. They are being shipped out in large measure through Croatian ports and airports and I can tell you they are making vast sums for corrupt forces in the Balkans." Lord Ashdown described the rebels as "not a fit and proper collection of people for us to be providing arms to". [Right, they're CIAcioapths.]

Google: CLG News 'does not comply with Names Policy'

Google: CLG News 'does not comply with Names Policy' by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 02 Jul 2013 NSA buddy Google will not allow CLG News on Google+. After receiving countless promos at from Google to set up a 'Google+' account, I clicked to 'upgrade' to Google+. Google requested I select a different name, even though my Gmail address -- established years ago -- is clgnews at gmail dot com. When I declined to select another name, Google presented the option to 'click to appeal' to use CLG News as the owner for CLG News on Google+. On 28 June, I received an email from Google, which included the following comments.

After reviewing your appeal, we have determined that your name does not comply with the Google+ Names Policy. We want users to be able to find each other using the name they already use with their friends, family, and coworkers. For most people this is their legal name, or some variant of it, but we recognize that this isn't always the case, and we allow for other common names in Google+ -- specifically, those that represent an individual with an established online identity with a meaningful following.

CLG News, in fact, has a HUGE and 'established online identity with a meaningful following,' although NSA buddy Google doesn't 'see' that. Or, maybe they do, and that's the problem... See also: NSA buddy Google wants me to change my name, declaring 'CLG News' is 'too long' for people to remember by Lori Price 09 Dec 2012.

Immigration deal would boost defense manufacturers 01 Jul 2013 The border security plan the Senate approved last week includes unusual language mandating the purchase of specific models of helicopters and radar equipment for deployment along the U.S.-Mexican border, providing a potential windfall worth tens of millions of dollars to top defense contractors. The legislation would require the U.S. Border Patrol to acquire, among other items, six Northrop Grumman airborne radar systems that cost $9.3 million each, 15 Sikorsky Black Hawk helicopters that average more than $17 million apiece, and eight light enforcement helicopters made by American Eurocopter that sell for about $3 million each. The legislation also calls for 17 UH-1N helicopters made by Bell Helicopter, an older model that the company no longer manufactures.

Egypt's military gives Morsi 48-hour ultimatum, threatens to intervene 01 Jul 2013 Egypt's military on Monday said mass protests calling for the resignation of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi were an "unprecedented" expression of the will of the people and gave the government 48 hours to meet the opposition's demands. In a statement read on state television just hours after the headquarters of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood movement were ransacked, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said if this did not happen the army would intervene. The protesters' main demands are that Morsi announce early elections and step down, allowing a temporary government to take over.

Death Valley hit hottest U.S. June temperature ever recorded Sunday: 129 01 Jul 2013 On Sunday, the National Weather Service reported Death Valley had surged to 128 degrees. But, in an update this morning, it reports the mercury touched 129 degrees at its peak, a new monthly record and a tie for the hottest June temperature ever recorded in the U.S. (assuming it is validated). Confusion arose Sunday about what whether Death Valley had reached 128 or 129. The 128-degree reading reported Sunday was the preliminary high as of 4 p.m. mountain time, said Chris Stachelski, a forecaster at the National Weather Service. But, the National Park Service, which is responsible for measurements using a mercury thermometer, said the high reached 129 in its final report just issued, and provided photographic evidence.

Potential witness must be jailed until leaving US --Civil rights group wants to speak with her about FBI shooting inquiry 29 Jun 2013 An immigration judge has ordered a potential witness in the investigation into the fatal shooting of a Chechen man by an FBI agent last month to leave the United States no later than July 1, and to remain in jail until she departs, raising an outcry from a civil rights group seeking a full accounting of the man's death. Federal immigration officials arrested Tatiana Igorevna Gruzdeva, a 19-year-old aspiring foreign language teacher from Russia, on May 16 for overstaying her visa. They discovered the violation when the FBI and other law enforcement officials began investigating Ibragim Todashev, her roommate in Orlando, about his ties to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. Six days later, a Boston FBI agent shot and killed 27-year-old Todashev in their apartment.

Thousands rally against Texas abortion bill on first day of new special session 01 Jul 2013 The Texas Capitol became the center of America's abortion debate again on Monday as thousands of demonstrators were on hand to voice opposition to Republican-backed legislation that would dramatically limit abortion rights in the state. The protests came at the start of a special legislative session called by Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry after a bill that would have essentially ban most abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy was halted last week. The effort was led by Democratic state Senator Wendy Davis, who became a national icon for abortion-rights advocates after standing for hours to filibuster the legislation.

Snowden Seeks Russian Asylum as Putin Says Leaks Must End 01 Jul 2013 President Vladimir Putin said Edward Snowden must quit hurting American interests should he hope to remain in Russia, after an official said the fugitive U.S. leaker applied for asylum there. "If he wants to stay, there’s one condition: He must stop his activity aimed at harming our American partners, as strange as it sounds coming from my lips," Putin, a frequent critic of U.S. policy, told reporters in the Kremlin yesterday. Putin said Snowden is unlikely to accept that restriction.

Obama Pledges $7 Billion to Upgrade Power in Africa

July 1, 2013 by legitgov

Obama Pledges $7 Billion to Upgrade Power in Africa 30 Jun 2013 U.S. President Barack Obama pledged $7 billion Sunday to help combat frequent power blackouts in sub-Saharan Africa. Funds from the initiative, dubbed Power Africa, will be distributed over the next five years. Obama made the announcement during his trip to South Africa, the continent's biggest economy. The program includes $1.5 billion from the U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation and $5 billion from the Export-Import Bank, the White House said. Sub-Saharan Africa will need more than $300 billion to achieve universal electricity access by 2030, it said. [Once again, US taxpayers are spending BILLIONS on another bl*job for US corpora-terrorists to PRETEND to build/upgrade power grids in another country! US taxpayers have spent BILLIONS to 'build' power grids in IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN -- seemingly, EVERY COUNTRY ON EARTH -- EXCEPT the US! US infrastructure is CRUMBLING, but Congress won't appropriate a nickel to fix any of the THOUSANDS of unsafe bridges across America or, God forbid, give a air traffic controller overtime. The reason why the hypocritical Republicans in Congress (except for Rand Paul and a few others) have no objection to pouring billions into 'upgrading' infrastructure in other nations is that they know such projects will NEVER be completed (Iraq, Afghanistan) and the only BENEFACTORS to these pseudo-humanitarian (and 'security') projects are US CORPORA-TERRORISTS, immune from oversight. That's why the GOP wants to spend $50 billion to 'secure the border' while simultaneously voting to cut food stamps and slash aid to the poor. --LRP]

Military faults guards in Guantánamo captive's suicide by overdose 28 Jun 2013 A U.S. military investigation found Guantánamo troops didn't follow their own rules, allowing a captive to take a fatal overdose of an anti-psychotic drug a day after he was moved into a disciplinary cell from the detention center's psychiatric ward. A 79-page report, released Friday under the Freedom of Information Act, showed the "standard operating procedures," or SOP, governing the U.S. Army Military Police required soldiers to regularly check on captives kept in solitary cells at Camp 5, Guantánamo's maximum-security lockup. Troops didn't do it for at least two shift changes before Yemeni captive Adnan Latif was discovered dead on the floor of his Camp 5 cell at the U.S. Navy base in southeast Cuba on Sept. 8, 2012.

Berlin accuses Washington of cold war tactics over snooping --Reports of NSA snooping on Europe go well beyond previous revelations of electronic spying 30 Jun 2013 Transatlantic relations plunged at the weekend as Berlin, Brussels and Paris all demanded that Washington account promptly and fully for new disclosures on the scale of the US National Security Agency's spying on its European allies. As further details emerged of the huge reach of US electronic snooping on Europe, Berlin accused Washington of treating it like the Soviet Union, "like a cold war enemy". The European commission called on the US to clarify allegations that the NSA, operating from Nato headquarters a few miles away in Brussels, had infiltrated secure telephone and computer networks at the venue for EU summits in the Belgian capital.
