John McCain's Benghazi Committee Plan Would Give Senator New Relevance

November 17, 2012 by legitgov

John McCain's Benghazi Committee Plan Would Give Senator New Relevance 16 Nov 2012 Just four years ago, John McCain was the leader of the GOP. Today, he's the highest-ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, a perch from which the former fighter pilot is deeply engaged in the national conversation over war, terrorism and intelligence gathering. But in January, the Arizona senator will lose his top-ranking committee seat due to term limits. The only ranking Republican spot available to him next session will be on the Indian Affairs Committee. Unless, that is, the Senate creates a brand-new select committee. On Wednesday, McCain, flanked by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), proposed just that: a select committee with extensive authority to investigate the Benghazi, Libya, attack and the U.S. government's response.

Mo. man charged in alleged 'Twilight' mass shooting plot --Lammers said he purchased 400 rounds of ammunition 16 Nov 2012 A Bolivar, Missouri, man has been charged after authorities say he admitted to planning to shoot up a movie theater screening of Twilight this weekend. Blaec Lammers, 20, was charged this morning in the 38th Judicial Circuit with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat, and armed criminal action. In a probable cause statement prepared by the Bolivar Police Department, police say Lammers's mother contacted authorities Thursday, concerned that her son had purchased weapons similar to the ones used in the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting and that she was concerned he might be planning a movie theater shooting.

Eleven other crew members were flown to hospitals, and four of them are listed in critical condition. No one has been confirmed dead. Earlier reports by the Coast Guard that as many as 15 people were unaccounted for were resolved as the workers were located.

Ministers to okay call up of 75,000 troops 16 Nov 2012 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened his nine top ministers for a special discussion Friday evening, on the third day of Operation Pillar of Defense [puke] in Gaza. Meanwhile, Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser conducted a telephone survey among the government ministers to approve the call up of 75,000 soldiers. According to a state official, "We are going to significantly aggravate the operation." At the same time, Air Force planes attacked a rocket-launching cell in the Gaza Strip. Southern communities were bombarded with rockets throughout the day, and several rockets were also fired at Tel Aviv and the Jerusalem area.

OpIsrael -- Anonymous stands by Palestine in this time of war and grief

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

#opIsrael -- Anonymous stands by Palestine in this time of war and grief (Anonymous) 15 Nov 2012 For far too long, Anonymous has stood by with the rest of the world and watched in despair the barbaric, brutal and despicable treatment of the Palestinian people in the so-called "Occupied Territories" by the Israel Defense Force. Like so many around the globe, we have felt helpless in the face of such implacable evil. And today's insane attack and threatened invasion of Gaza was more of the same. But when the government of Israel publicly threatened to sever all Internet and other telecommunications into and out of Gaza they crossed a line in the sand. As the former dictator of Egypt Mubarack [sic] learned the hard way -- we are ANONYMOUS and NO ONE shuts down the Internet on our watch. To the IDF and government of Israel we issue you this warning only once. Do NOT shut down the Internet into the "Occupied Territories", and cease and desist from your terror upon the innocent people of Palestine or you will know the full and unbridled wrath of Anonymous.

Anonymous hacker group attacks Israeli websites

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

Anonymous hacker group attacks Israeli websites 16 Nov 2012 Hacking group Anonymous has launched a series of cyber attacks against websites in Israel. Data bombardments briefly knocked some sites offline and led to others being defaced with pro-Palestinian messages. The OpIsrael campaign was launched by the hacking collective in retaliation for attacks on Gaza. The cyber attacks come as the Israeli army updates its web campaign adding "achievements" and "badges" for regular visitors. Anonymous said it had launched the OpIsrael campaign following threats by the Israeli government to cut all Gaza's telecommunication links. This, said the group in a statement posted to the AnonRelations website, "crossed a line in the sand".

Ex-CIA Chief Petraeus Grilled Over Ambassador Rice

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

Ex-CIA Chief Petraeus Grilled Over Ambassador Rice 16 Nov 2012 Disgraced former CIA director Petraeus spent almost four hours in closed door hearings before the House and Senate intelligence committees this morning to testify about what he learned first-hand about the Sept. 11 attack in the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Democratic senators who emerged from the hearing said Petraeus's testimony supported U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice. Rice, who could be nominated for Secretary of State by President Obama, has been accused by Republicans of trying to mislead the country by saying the attack was a spontaneous eruption rather than a failure to defend against a terrorist attack. [And, the same hypocritical sacks of sh*t were fine and dandy with Bush bimbo Condoleezza Rice, who lied about the 9/11 inside job and lied about the non-existent weapons of mass distraction in Iraq.]

Jill Kelley visited the White House THREE TIMES in last three months with her twin sister 16 Nov 2012 Jill Kelley, the Florida housewife whose complaint over threatening emails revealed David Petraeus's affair, has visited the White House three times in the past three months, it has emerged. In by far the most astonishing example of her determination to reach the top, the shrewd socialite and her twin sister, Natalie Khawam, were invited to two 'courtesy' meals in the Executive Mansion mess hall as a guest of a White House aide, an Obama administration official has revealed. She met the mid-level aide through her work with MacDill Air Force Base near Tampa, where she also rubbed shoulders with the military's top brass, including General Petraeus. On one further occasion, she received a White House tour with her family, the official added.

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

Man with bomb-making supplies arrested at Oakland Airport 16 Nov 2012 Officials are investigating a Southern California man who was arrested at Oakland International Airport Thursday night after he was found with materials that could be used to make a bomb. It happened around 8 p.m. Thursday. The man, who had a Southern California address, was trying to board a Southwest Airlines flight to Los Angeles. He was going through a security checkpoint when TSA inspectors noticed suspicious items in the bin where he had placed his carry-on bag. They found what appeared, to them, to be components of an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) including a watch with wires, fuses, and a toggle switch. All the components were there except for an explosive.

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

Israeli protesters gather in Tel Aviv to urge end to Gaza operation 15 Nov 2012 Some 200 protesters rallied in central Tel Aviv on Thursday night, calling for a cease-fire in Gaza. The activists, largely identifying with left-wing political parties Meretz and Hadash, chanted slogan such as "Arabs and Jews refuse to be enemies," "in Gaza and Sderot, little girls want to live," and "Bibi and Barak, war is not a game." Across the street, dozens of right-wing activists, including MK Michael Ben Ari, from the National Union party, engaged in a counter protest, chanting "everyone knows left-wingers are traitors," and "let the IDF in, let the IDF win." In central Jerusalem, police arrested five people participating in a protest against Israeli activity in Gaza.

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

Bernie Sanders, Progressive Senators Pressure Obama Not to Cut Social Security 16 Nov 2012 A group of progressive lawmakers led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday called for protecting Social Security and Medicare benefits in any deficit reduction deal. "We're going to send a loud message to the leadership in the House, in the Senate and President Obama. Do not cut Social Security, do not cut Medicare, do not cut Medicaid," Sanders said. "Deficit reduction is a serious issue but it must be done in a way that is fair. We must not balance the budget on the backs of the elderly, the sick, the children or the poor."  [Yeah, good luck with that. Sanders has as much chance as a cat with a long tail in a room filled with rockers. --LRP]

Paula Broadwell Stripped of Secret Clearance Amid Petraeus Scandal 14 Nov 2012 Paula Broadwell, the author suspected of carrying on an affair with former CIA director David Petraeus, has been stripped of her military security clearance after a federal probe alleged she was storing classified military material at her home. "Appropriate actions with regard to this officer's clearance and access have been taken," said Army spokesman George Wright of Broadwell, an Army reservist and West Point graduate... A source familiar with the case told ABC News that Broadwell admitted to the FBI she took documents from secure government buildings. The government demanded that they all be given back, and federal agents descended on her North Carolina home on Monday night in pre-arranged visit.

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

Israel launches fresh air strikes on Gaza 16 Nov 2012 Israeli war planes carried out multiple new air strikes as dawn broke Friday after a sleepless night punctuated by rocket fire on the Gaza Strip. The strikes included several direct hits on Gaza City.

Israel Mobilizes Troops as Hostilities Escalate 16 Nov 2012 Israel began mobilizing tens of thousands of troops Thursday and extended its aerial and artillery attacks on the Gaza Strip to a third day early Friday, while Palestinian militants mounted their deepest-ever missile strikes into the heart of Israel. The exchanges, which have killed 19 Palestinians and three Israelis, broadened a conflict that had erupted into the open Wednesday. Israel responded to escalating missile strikes from Gaza militants by launching a blitz of airstrikes that day that killed the top military commander of Hamas, the Islamist militant group and political movement that runs Gaza.

November 16, 2012 by legitgov

Jill Kelley Loses VIP Privileges at Military Base 14 Nov 2012 Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite at the center of the Petraeus scandal, has lost the privilege of visiting MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa without an escort. The base is home to U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) and U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), and Kelley, who enjoyed rubbing shoulders with top military brass, had been granted unescorted access to the base under a program initiated by the Air Force unit that runs operations at the base. A Defense official confirms to ABC News that Kelley participated in a base program known as the "Friends of MacDill" where she was placed on a master list that allowed her to clear security when entering the base. A person must be nominated to enter the program, and must pass a background check by the wing's security office.

4 dead after train crashes into Texas vets parade 15 Nov 2012 A freight train slammed into a parade float carrying wounded veterans on Thursday, killing four people and injuring 17 others as the float drove through a West Texas railroad crossing on its way to an honorary banquet, authorities said.

A preliminary investigation indicates the crossing gate and lights were working at the time, Lange said, though he didn't know if the train crew saw the float approaching.

McCain skips Benghazi briefing, gets testy when questioned by CNN 15 Nov 2012 Most of the Republican members of a Senate committee investigating the terrorist attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, skipped a classified briefing by administration officials on the incident Wednesday, CNN has learned. The missing lawmakers included Sen. [hypocritical sociopath] John McCain of Arizona, who at the time of the top-secret briefing held a press conference in the Capitol to call for the creation of a Watergate-type special Congressional committee to investigate how and why the attack took place. When CNN approached McCain in a Capitol hallway Thursday morning, the senator refused to comment about why he missed the briefing, which was conducted by top diplomatic, military and counter-terrorism officials. Instead, McCain got testy when pressed to say why he wasn't there.

Attorney General Eric Holder also announced a separate 23-count criminal indictment - including charges of seaman's and involuntary manslaughter - against the two top-ranking BP supervisors on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig where a blowout occurred April 20, 2010, sinking the rig and killing 11 workers. Holder also announced an indictment against David Rainey, a BP vice president, for hiding information from Congress and lying to law enforcement officials about the rate at which oil was gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.

Anti-nuclear protest blogger's home raided by police, computer equipment seized 15 Nov 2012 Yuzuru Kaneko, a blogger who has been filming the anti-nuclear protests in Fukui Prefecture, had his home raided by police on October 1st in order to search for evidence of potential demonstrators who had committed crimes. While most of the Japanese public has feelings against the continued use of nuclear power after the March 2011 Fukushima disaster, Fukui Prefecture is home to the Oi power plant, where the nation's only two active reactors reside. Kaneko has been covering many of the local protests against Kansai Electric Power Co. (KEPCO), the operators of the Oi facility, and uploading the video to his YouTube channel.

A law enforcement official familiar with the case also said that two BP employees would be charged with manslaughter in the case.

'Fix the Debt': A Trojan Horse for Corporate Tax Cuts

November 15, 2012 by legitgov

'Fix the Debt': A Trojan Horse for Corporate Tax Cuts 14 Nov 2012 With a $60 million war chest and the blessing of more than 80 CEOs of America's biggest corporations, "Fix the Debt" is passing itself off as a reasoned call for compromise to save the nation from economic disaster. But as this new infographic and a recent study show, the companies behind Fix the Debt stand to gain $134 billion from one of the tax breaks they are promoting. Not just any tax break, mind you, but a new tax incentive for corporations to send U.S. jobs overseas. A new report from the Institute for Policy Studies (ISP) warns that: [Fix the Debt] is a Trojan horse concealing massive corporate tax breaks that would make our debt situation much worse. [It's] a powerful corporate lobby using the deficit as an excuse to sneak through costly corporate tax breaks, while at the same time cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Cracks found at nuclear power plant north of Columbia --SCE&G has begun repairs to reactor head; watchdogs worry about long-term safety 15 Nov 2012 (SC) Utility engineers are working to seal cracks at a Fairfield County atomic power plant before the fractures widen and make the plant more vulnerable to a nuclear accident. The SCE&G plant doesn't present any current threat to the public [?], but cracks in the reactor head at the nuclear plant are a concern that must be addressed, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Without repairs, the small cracks could widen and allow water that keeps the reactor cool to escape.

November 15, 2012 by legitgov

Secession petitions filed for all 50 states 14 Nov 2012 Petitions signed by hundreds of thousands of Americans seeking permission for their states to peacefully secede from the union have now been filed for all 50 states on the White House website. The secession petition push began last week on the site's We The People section after a Slidell, La., man filed a petition on Nov. 7 to allow Louisiana to secede. Residents from other states followed suit. Texas is in the lead with more than 99,000, but Gov. Rick Perry said on Tuesday that he does not support secession. Meanwhile, residents of Austin, Texas's stubbornly liberal stronghold, have petitioned the White House to allow the city to "withdraw from the state of Texas [and] remain part of the United States."
