June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Eric Holder held in contempt of Congress after historic vote 28 Jun 2012 The attorney general Eric Holder has become the first sitting member of a president's cabinet in US history to be held in contempt of Congress after Republicans vented their fury over a bungled gun-tracking investigation. Fifteen DemocRATs, under pressure from the pro-gun lobby the NRA, joined 238 Republicans to carry a criminal contempt resolution against Holder. A currently serving attorney general has never before been censured in this way. The criminal contempt resolution, passed by 255 to 67, with most Democrats walking out of the chamber en masse before the vote, related to Operation Fast and Furious, a federal investigation launched in Arizona designed to ensnare gun smugglers involved with the Mexican drug cartels.

June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Highest level of radiation to date detected inside Fukushima No.1 reactor 28 Jun 2012 The highest level of radiation to date has been detected inside the No.1 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. The plant's operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) said on Thursday it used endoscopes and dosimeters to examine the interior of the reactor. A record level of 10,300 millisieverts per hour was detected in the internal measurement carried out for the first time since the March 2011 accident. The measurement was taken 20 centimeters above the surface of a contaminated water puddle in the reactor's suppression chamber. This high level of radiation would be fatal for humans within 50 minutes. A measurement of 1,000 millisieverts per hour was detected about four meters above the water surface, which is ten times higher than measured in the No.2 and No.3 reactors, Japanese media reported.

Top court upholds healthcare law in Obama triumph

June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Top court upholds healthcare law in Obama triumph 28 Jun 2012 The U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obama's healthcare law on Thursday in an election-year triumph for him and fellow Democrats and a setback for Republican opponents of the most sweeping overhaul since the 1960s of the unwieldy U.S. healthcare system. In a 5-4 ruling based on the power of Congress to impose taxes, the nation's highest court preserved the law's "individual mandate" requiring that most Americans obtain health insurance by 2014 or pay a tax. The justices also preserved, with some changes, a provision of the law expanding the Medicaid health insurance program for the poor.

NYPD gets $10M radiation-spotting chopper 28 Jun 2012 The newest tool designed to protect New York is a specially outfitted helicopter -- the Bell 412 chopper. The new $10 million dollar craft was being delivered from the factory in Tennessee.

Texas college hacks government drone

June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Texas college hacks government drone 27 Jun 2012 There is much you can do with $1,000, but scientists at an Austin, Texas college have come across one that is often overlooked: for less than a grand, how'd you like to hijack a US government drone? A group of researchers led by Professor Todd Humphreys from the University of Texas at Austin Radionavigation Laboratory recently succeeded in raising the eyebrows of the US government. With just around $1,000 in parts, Humphreys' team took control of an unmanned aerial vehicle operated by the US Department of Homeland Security. After being challenged by his lab, the DHS dared Humphreys' crew to hack into their drone and take command. Much to their chagrin, they did exactly that. [Awesome! Hack and mark them 'return to sender.']

Judge refuses to block Florida voter purge 27 Jun 2012 A federal judge has refused to stop Florida from removing potentially non-U.S. citizens Democrats from its voter rolls. The U.S. Department of Justice sued the state to halt the purge, arguing it was going on too close to a federal election. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said Wednesday that there was nothing in federal voting laws that prevent the state from identifying non-U.S. citizens even if it comes less than 90 days before the Aug. 14 election.

Supreme Court upholds GOP concept of individual mandate in Obama 'health care' law

June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Supreme Court upholds GOP concept of individual mandate in Obama 'health care' law --The concept of individual mandate - originating with the GOP and implemented by Governor Mitt Romney in Massachusetts and by President Barack Obama nationally - has been upheld by the Supreme Court. The vote was 5-4. Supreme Court upholds centerpiece of Obama healthcare law 28 Jun 2012 A sharply divided Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the centerpiece of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare overhaul law that requires that most Americans get insurance by 2014 or pay a financial penalty. "The Affordable Care Act's requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the court's majority in the opinion. "Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness," he concluded.

Dotcom searches illegal: Judge

June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Dotcom searches illegal: Judge --Dotcom lawyer: 'The search warrants were unlawful and the FBI sending the clones to the USA was also unlawful.' 28 Jun 2012 The High Court has ruled the police raid on internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom's Auckland mansion was illegal and the removal from New Zealand of cloned copies of hard drives seized was unlawful. Justice Helen Winkelmann found the warrants used did not adequately describe the offences to which they were related. "Indeed they fell well short of that. They were general warrants, and as such, are invalid."

State Dept. planning to spend $115 million to 'upgrade' $700 million U.S. Embassy in Baghdad --Troops have withdrawn from Iraq, but U.S. money hasn't 27 Jun 2012 The State Department is planning to spend up to $115 million to upgrade the U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad, already its biggest and most expensive in the world, according to pre-solicitation notices published this month. Remember, it has been 3 1/2 years since American diplomats moved into the 104-acre, $700 million facility. According to a June 14 pre-solicitation, the estimated construction cost is put at between $60 million and $80 million and is expected to take two years to complete... The United States has spent about $100 million on the Police College facility, having built living quarters, a dining facility, an office building, a new gymnasium and a helicopter landing site. On June 17, the grand opening of the $15 million Al-Nahrain Center for Strategic Studies "with funding from the U.S. embassy," was announced in an embassy news release. [But we can't get single-payer healthcare, a teacher hired or a bridge fixed. This is bullsh*t. Start reading.]

Rand Paul Trying to Add 'Personhood' Amendment to Flood Insurance Bill

June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Rand Paul Trying to Add 'Personhood' Amendment to Flood Insurance Bill [LOL!] 27 Jun 2012 Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) moved this week to hold a noncontroversial flood insurance bill hostage until the Senate agrees that life begins at fertilization. The bill, which would financially boost the National Flood Insurance Program on the cusp of hurricane season, had been expected to pass easily in the Senate. But since Paul on Monday offered an unrelated "fetal personhood" amendment, which would give legal protections to fetuses from the moment of fertilization, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is threatening to halt progress on the legislation. "I'm told last night that one of our Republican senators wants to offer an amendment - listen to this one - wants to offer an amendment on when life begins," Reid said on the Senate floor Tuesday. "I am not going to put up with that on flood insurance. I can be condemned by outside sources; my friends can say, 'Let them have a vote on it.' There will not be a vote on that on flood insurance..."

June 28, 2012 by legitgov

Militants kill 13 Pakistan troops, behead 7 25 Jun 2012 Militants crossed into Pakistan from Afghanistan and killed 13 Pakistani troops, beheading seven of them, the Pakistani military charged Monday.

That claim helps Islamabad counter frequent U.S. and NATO complaints that militants behind much of the violence in Afghanistan come from Pakistan.

Small-Town Cops Pile Up on Useless Military Gear 26 Jun 2012 Small police departments across America are collecting battlefield-grade arsenals thanks to a program that allows them to get their hands on military surplus equipment, such as amphibious tanks and night-vision goggles at virtually no cost - except for shipment and maintenance.

It serves 7,000 people in northern Georgia and received 17,145 items from the military. The cops in Issaquah, Washington, a town of 30,000 people, acquired more than 37,000 pieces of gear.

Seismologists warn Japan against nuclear restart

June 27, 2012 by legitgov

Seismologists warn Japan against nuclear restart 26 Jun 2012 Two prominent seismologists said on Tuesday that Japan is ignoring the safety lessons of last year's Fukushima crisis and warned against restarting two reactors next month. Japan has approved the restart of the two reactors at the Kansai Electric Power Ohi nuclear plant, northwest of Tokyo, despite mass public opposition. They will be the first to come back on line after all reactors were shut following meltdowns at Tokyo Electric Power's Daiichi Fukushima plant. Seismic modeling by Japan's nuclear regulator did not properly take into account active fault lines near the Ohi plant, Katsuhiko Ishibashi, a seismologist at Kobe University, told reporters.

"This is a fire of epic proportions," Colorado Springs Fire Chief Rich Brown said as ash drifted down on the city, sirens wailed and the thick smell of smoke permeated the air.
