August 9, 2013 by legitgov

Russian foreign minister tells US to behave 'like grown-ups' 09 Aug 2013 The chill in relations between the US and Russia grew still frostier yesterday as President Vladimir Putin's foreign minister told the White House to start behaving like "grown-ups". Sergei Lavrov chided the US administration two days after President Barack Obama scrapped a summit with Mr Putin when Russia granted asylum to Edward Snowden, the fugitive US spy US whistleblower. "We need to work as grown-ups," he told a press conference in Washington alongside John Kerry, the US Secretary of State. "This is what we do. And we hope that this will be reciprocal".

NSA loophole allows warrantless search for US citizens' emails and phone calls

NSA loophole allows warrantless search for US citizens' emails and phone calls --Spy agency has secret backdoor permission to search databases for individual Americans' communications 09 Aug 2013 The National Security Agency has a secret backdoor into its vast databases under a legal authority enabling it to search for US citizens' email and phone calls without a warrant, according to a top-secret document passed to the Guardian by Edward Snowden. The previously undisclosed rule change allows NSA operatives to hunt for individual Americans' communications using their name or other identifying information. Senator Ron Wyden told the Guardian that the law provides the NSA with a loophole potentially allowing "warrantless searches for the phone calls or emails of law-abiding Americans". The authority, approved in 2011, appears to contrast with repeated assurances from Barack Obama and senior intelligence officials to both Congress and the American public that the privacy of US citizens is protected from the NSA's dragnet surveillance programs.

4 in 5 in US face near-poverty, no work

August 9, 2013 by legitgov

4 in 5 in US face near-poverty, no work 28 Jul 2013 Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream. Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized U.S. economy, the widening gap between rich and poor, and the loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend. The findings come as President Barack Obama tries to renew his administration's emphasis on the economy, saying in recent speeches that his highest priority is to "rebuild ladders of opportunity" and reverse income inequality.

Children given lifelong ban on talking about fracking

August 9, 2013 by legitgov

Children given lifelong ban on talking about fracking 05 Aug 2013 Two young children in Pennsylvania were banned from talking about fracking for the rest of their lives under a gag order imposed under a settlement reached by their parents with a leading oil and gas company. The sweeping gag order was imposed under a $750,000 settlement between the Hallowich family and Range Resources Corp, a leading oil and gas driller. It provoked outrage on Monday among environmental campaigners and free speech advocates. The settlement, reached in 2011 but unsealed only last week, barred the Hallowichs' son and daughter, who were then aged 10 and seven, from ever discussing fracking or the Marcellus Shale, a leading producer in America's shale gas boom.

US forces closure of Texas-based encrypted email service allegedly used by Snowden 09 Aug 2013 An encrypted email service believed to have been used by US leaker Edward Snowden shut down on Thursday apparently as a result of pressure from US authorities. Lavabit owner Ladar Levison posted a message at the website telling users that the he was pulling the plug on the secure email service launched in Texas nearly a decade ago. Levison lamented that he was barred from sharing details of what prompted Lavabit's demise.

N.S.A. Said to Search Content of Messages to and From U.S.

August 8, 2013 by legitgov

N.S.A. Said to Search Content of Messages to and From U.S. 08 Aug 2013 The National Security Agency is searching the contents of vast amounts of Americans' e-mail and text communications into and out of the country, hunting for people who mention information about foreigners under surveillance, according to intelligence officials. The N.S.A. is not just intercepting the communications of Americans who are in direct contact with foreigners targeted overseas, a practice that government officials have openly acknowledged. It is also casting a far wider net for people who cite information linked to those foreigners, like a little used e-mail address, according to a senior intelligence official. While it has long been known that the agency conducts extensive computer searches of data it vacuums up overseas, that it is systematically searching -- without warrants -- through the contents of Americans' communications that cross the border reveals more about the scale of its secret operations.

Obama cancels summit meeting with Putin over Snowden case 07 Aug 2013 President Obama canceled an upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, a rare, deliberate snub that reflects the fresh damage done by the [US reaction to the] Edward Snowden case to an important relationship already in decline. Obama had planned to visit Moscow for a symbolic one-on-one meeting at the Kremlin with Putin ahead of next month's Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia. In unusually blunt terms, the White House announced Wednesday that Obama will skip the Moscow stop because there is too little hope of a productive meeting.

Feds Are Suspects in New Malware That Attacks Tor Anonymity

August 8, 2013 by legitgov

Feds Are Suspects in New Malware That Attacks Tor Anonymity 05 Aug 2013 Security researchers tonight are poring over a piece of malicious software that takes advantage of a Firefox security vulnerability to identify some users of the privacy-protecting Tor anonymity network. The malware showed up Sunday morning on multiple websites hosted by the anonymous hosting company Freedom Hosting. That would normally be considered a blatantly criminal "drive-by" hack attack, but nobody's calling in the FBI this time. The FBI is the prime suspect. "It just sends identifying information to some IP in Reston, Virginia," says reverse-engineer Vlad Tsyrklevich. "It's pretty clear that it's FBI or it's some other law enforcement agency that's U.S.-based."

Putin will not 'cave' to Obama pressure: Snowden's father 07 Aug 2013 The father of Edward Snowden, the fugitive former U.S. spy agency contractor, predicted on Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin will stand up to pressure from Washington as the two nations spar over Moscow's decision to grant his son asylum. Lon Snowden's comments came on the day that President Barack Obama canceled a summit meeting with Putin planned for next month in retaliation for Russia giving refuge to Edward Snowden. Snowden's father told Reuters in an extensive interview he was confident Putin would not change his mind and send his son back to the United States to face espionage charges. "President Vladimir Putin has stood firm. I respect strength and I respect courage," Snowden said. "He has stood firm against the face of intense pressure from our government and I have to believe that he will continue to stand firm."

Scientists Plan to Create New Bird Flu Strain in Lab 07 Aug 2013 Scientists who sparked an outcry when they created easier-to-spread versions of the bird flu want to try such experiments again, this time using a worrisome new strain known as H7N9. Since it broke out in March in China, the bird flu strain has infected more than 130 people and killed 43. Such research is allowed only in high-security labs, but the U.S. government promises extra oversight and says a special review panel will weigh the pros and cons before deciding if certain flu projects are worth the risk.

First case of bird flu 'spreading between humans' 07 Aug 2013 Chinese scientists on Wednesday reported the first likely case of direct person-to-person transmission of the H7N9 bird flu virus that has killed over 40 people since March. The development was "worrying" and should be closely watched, the team wrote in the British online journal bmj.com, but stressed that the virus, believed to jump from birds to people, was still inadept at spreading among humans. Scientists have long feared the virus would mutate into a form that transmits easily from person to person.[Heads up! US bioterrorists finally hit pay-dirt. They are *dying* to get the pandemic party started and implement martial law, so successful with the sheeple during the Boston Marathon bombings false flag aka 'dry run.']

Radioactive water may overflow at Japan plant 06 Aug 2013 The operator of Japan's wrecked Fukushima nuclear power plant is struggling to stop contaminated radioactive underground water from leaking into the sea.
