Gov. Rick Snyder: Government bailout is the wrong answer for Detroit

July 21, 2013 by legitgov

Gov. Rick Snyder: Government bailout is the wrong answer for Detroit [Right, only US corpora-terrorists and mercenaries are elibible for US tax dollars.] 21 Jul 2013 Gov. Rick Snyder, R-Dirt-bag-Mich., said Sunday on "Face the Nation" that granting Detroit a government bailout would be the wrong way to help the bankrupt city. "I do not view that as the right answer," Snyder told "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer when asked whether he would ask the federal government for a bailout. "The right answer is, bankruptcy is there to deal with the debt question." Snyder said the state cannot bail out Detroit, and while the federal government will make its own decision on a bailout, he said, "I don't expect one."

US pharma-terrorists are *dying* to get the pandemic party started: H7N9 bird flu virus capable of airborne transmission 19 Jul 2013 One strain of the H7N9 bird flu virus appears to spread easily through the air between ferrets, which are a good model for how the virus may spread in humans, a new study from China says. Researchers tested transmission of five strains of H7N9, all taken from people who got sick with the virus. ...One strain was able to spread very well it infected 100 percent of the ferrets who were exposed to it through the air.

Kerry vows to put the screws to Venezuela over Snowden - report 20 Jul 2013 US Secretary of State John Kerry has reportedly promised his Venezuelan counterpart to close NATO airspace to the country's flights and stop crucial oil product deliveries if Caracas grants asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden. Last Friday night, just hours after Venezuela agreed to provide political asylum to former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Kerry personally called Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua, a Spanish ABC media outlet cites a source familiar with the conversation as saying. Kerry reportedly threatened to ground any Venezuelan aircraft in America's or any NATO country's airspace if there is the slightest suspicion that Snowden is using the flight to get to Caracas.

July 21, 2013 by legitgov

Court Orders Reporter to Testify in Case of Leaked C.I.A. Data 20 Jul 2013 In a major ruling on press freedoms, a divided federal appeals court on Friday ruled that James Risen, an author and a reporter for The New York Times, must testify in the criminal trial of a former Central Intelligence Agency official charged with providing him with classified information. In a 118-page set of opinions, two members of a three-judge panel for the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, in Richmond, Va., ruled that the First Amendment does not protect reporters who receive unauthorized leaks from being forced to testify against the people suspected of leaking to them. Mr. Risen has vowed to go to prison rather than testify about his sources and to carry any appeal as far as the Supreme Court.

Great Barrier Reef Hit by Four US Jet Bombs

July 21, 2013 by legitgov

Great Barrier Reef Hit by Four US Jet Bombs 21 Jul 2103 Two American fighter jets dropped four bombs on the Great Barrier Reef after a training exercise went wrong, it has emerged. US officials said the pilots of two AV-8B Harrier jets were forced to jettison the unarmed devices on Tuesday because both aircrafts were running low on fuel and could not land with the bombs on board. The pilots intended to drop the munitions on a designated bombing range on Townshend Island but aborted the mission when controllers reported the area was not clear of hazards. Instead, they jettisoned two bombs from each aircraft on the World Heritage-listed marine park off the coast of Queensland state.

Australian outback station at forefront of US spying arsenal 20 Jul 2013 Pine Gap remains an enduring symbol of the unshakeable bond between Australian and US intelligence services. It's a piece of America. At least that's the vibe in the large cafeteria at the top secret Joint Defence Facility at Pine Gap near Alice Springs. Australia and the United States are certainly united at Pine Gap. It's the crux of an electronic espionage alliance that's nearly five decades old. It's also the most secret place in Australia.

Police need warrants to track cell-phone data, N.J. Supreme Court rules

July 21, 2013 by legitgov

Police need warrants to track cell-phone data, N.J. Supreme Court rules 18 Jul 2013 In a trailblazing decision that expands electronic privacy rights in New Jersey, the state Supreme Court ruled today that law enforcement agencies must get warrants if they want to track crime suspects by tracing the signals from their cell phones. "Cell phones are not meant to serve as tracking devices to locate their owners wherever they may be," Chief Justice Stuart Rabner wrote in the 7-0 decision. The state's high court is the first in the country to impose such a ruling, and former state justices and legal experts said the decision could ripple throughout the states and in federal courts wrestling with the same questions on the collection and use of electronic data.

UK mosque bombing suspect also accused of Muslim man's murder 20 Jul 2013 A Ukrainian man, detained this week over the bombing of mosques in central England, has also been accused of the murder of an elderly Muslim man stabbed to death on his way home from evening prayers three months ago, police said on Saturday. The 25-year-old was arrested along with another Ukrainian man, 22, on Thursday on terrorism charges after explosions at two mosques near the city of Birmingham, one in June and the other last week. Police said the older man was now also accused of killing Mohammed Saleem in the Small Heath area of Birmingham in April.

'Prolific Partner': German Intelligence Used NSA Spy Program

July 20, 2013 by legitgov

'Prolific Partner': German Intelligence Used NSA Spy Program 20 Jul 2013 Angela Merkel and her ministers claim they first learned about the US government's comprehensive spying programs from press reports. But SPIEGEL has learned that German intelligence services themselves use one of the NSA's most valuable tools. Germany's foreign intelligence service, the BND, and its domestic intelligence agency, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), used a spying program of the American National Security Agency (NSA). This is evident in secret documents from the US intelligence service that have been seen by SPIEGEL journalists. The documents show that the Office for the Protection of the Constitution was equipped with a program called XKeyScore intended to "expand their ability to support NSA as we jointly prosecute CT (counterterrorism) targets." The BND is tasked with instructing the domestic intelligence agency on how to use the program, the documents say.

Adorable baby owls rescued from California forest fire

July 20, 2013 by legitgov

Adorable baby owls rescued from California forest fire 19 Jul 2013 When the Carstens Fire blazed through Mariposa County, Calif., last month, firefighters clamored to contain the flames in the Sierra National Forest. As one unit had just set to work clearing away potentially vulnerable trees and brush on June 19, firemen in the group discovered an adorable surprise amid the destruction: two abandoned owlets. Firefighter Nick Gauthier, 27, was surprised when a colleague approached him cradling a Western screech owl cradled in his hand. The little one had been found inside a tree cut down to make the firebreak, the gap in vegetation firefighters create to stop a blaze. Figuring there might be other stranded owls, Gauthier took another look inside the hole and discovered one more.

FAA warns public against shooting guns at drones

FAA warns public against shooting guns at drones [Nope. If people see a drone, they should *blow it out of the sky.* We're not tolerating the psychotic NYPD or Department of Homeland Stasi to deploy armed drones to buzz over our heads.] 19 Jul 2013 People who fire guns at drones are endangering the public and property and could be prosecuted or fined, the Federal Aviation Administration warned Friday. The FAA released a statement in response to questions about an ordinance under consideration in the tiny farming community of Deer Trail, Colo., that would encourage hunters to shoot down drones. The administration reminded the public that it regulates the nation's airspace, including the airspace over cities and towns. Under the proposed ordinance, Deer Trail would grant hunting permits to shoot drones. The permits would cost $25 each. The town would also encourage drone hunting by awarding $100 to anyone who presents a valid hunting license and identifiable pieces of a drone that has been shot down. [Excellent!]

UK spy agency's use of U.S. data was legal: parliament

July 20, 2013 by legitgov

UK spy agency's use of U.S. data was legal: parliament 17 Jul 2013 Britain's electronic surveillance agency did not circumvent the law by using data gathered by a clandestine U.S. spy program called PRISM, the British parliament said on Wednesday. Former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden leaked details of PRISM last month, lifting the lid on what he said was a vast surveillance system that vacuumed up emails and phone data - which leaked documents showed were sometimes handed over to Britain's security services. Parliament's intelligence and security committee launched an 'investigation' into allegations Britain's GCHQ surveillance agency circumvented British laws protecting the privacy of communications by accessing data from the U.S. program.

San Diego County clerk asks state Supreme Court to stop gay marriages 19 Jul 2013 The San Diego County clerk has asked the state Supreme Court to stop gay marriages. In a petition filed Friday, clerk Ernest Dronenburg Jr. argued that same-sex marriages remain illegal in California despite a U.S. Supreme Court's decision widely regarded as authorizing gay weddings. Dronenburg also argued that county clerks aren't bound by orders from Gov. Jerry Brown, state Attorney General Kamala Harris and other state officials to marry gay couples. Update: Greg Cox, chairman of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, issued a statement saying the county clerk, Ernest J. Dronenburg Jr., "acted independently on this matter."

Obama: Trayvon Martin 'Could Have Been Me'

July 20, 2013 by legitgov

Obama: Trayvon Martin 'Could Have Been Me' 19 Jul 2013 Six days after a Florida jury acquitted a Hispanic man in the shooting death of an African-American teen, President Barack Obama made his first extensive comments on the case, speaking in personal terms about his own experience of being black in America. "Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," the president said in the remarks, made Friday during a surprise appearance in the White House press room. Mr. Martin, a 17-year-old African-American, was shot and killed in Florida last year in a case that riveted millions of Americans and sparked debate over the state of race relations in the country. "There are very few African-American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars," Mr. Obama said. "That happens to me--at least before I was a senator." ['Trayvon Martin could have been me.' Yeah, but then you worked for CIA (Business International Corporation) and the rest is history. 'Liberals' are still fooled by Obama! Am I the only one who knows that Obama's earlier comments on race were made to provide cover for the blow he will deal the 'left' when he nominates racist profiler Ray Kelly to head the DHS? Silly wabbits...gotta know by now, Obusha's all about keeping MSNBC and his 'liberal' base in line while he invokes Wall Street/CIA-approved policies and nominates officials to the right of Attila the Hun. --LRP]

Freedom, Flight and The Falcon

July 20, 2013 by legitgov

Freedom, Flight and The Falcon 13 Jul 2013 WikiLeaks Party member Gary Lord interviews Christopher Boyce, whose experiences as a US whistle-blower were documented in the 1985 Sean Penn movie, "The Falcon and The Snowman." Boyce, now aged 60, spent 25 years in prison after being convicted of selling US government secrets to the Russians... In 1974, Boyce found himself working in the secretive "Black Vault" communications center of a US aerospace firm, where he had free access to allegedly "misrouted" Central Intelligence Agency cables. And like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden some 40 years later, he became increasingly angry at his government's covert actions around the world.

Ex-CIA official detained in Panama heading back to U.S. 19 Jul 2013 Former CIA Milan station chief Robert Seldon Lady, who was convicted in Italy of kidnapping an Egyptian Muslim cleric and detained in Panama this week, was headed back to the United States, a State Department spokeswoman said on Friday. The former spy was among 23 Americans sentenced in absentia by an Italian judge in 2009 for the abduction of the cleric. Lady was given a nine-year jail term. "It is my understanding that he is in fact either en route or back in the United States," said Marie Harf, a State Department spokeswoman. [Right, under Obusha, CIA kidnappers and torturers get to happily return to the US; only those who expose them need to flee. --LRP]

Grass fires break out in London as heatwave bakes Britain 19 Jul 2013 Grass fires broke out in east London on Friday, requiring intervention by 120 firefighters as Britain sweltered in a heatwave that has prompted health warnings from the authorities. In scenes unusual for famously wet Britain, two swathes of yellowed grass, firs and gorse were on fire, sending smoke high enough to be visible from the Olympic Park several miles away. Britain has been experiencing its first prolonged heatwave in seven years over the past week, with temperatures expected to exceed 30 degrees Celsius in many areas for several more days.

Heatwave Gripping US 'Moving Backwards' --Heatwave still scorching parts of US has surprised meteorologists as it moves east to west, something that rarely happens 19 Jul 2013 The oppressively hot weather in the Northeast has surprised meteorologists because it is moving backward across America. Normally US weather systems move west to east. The western Atlantic high pressure system behind the hot dry weather started moving east to west last week and by Tuesday was centred over lower Michigan, said Jon Gottschalck, the operations chief at the National Weather Service's prediction branch. "It's definitely unusual and going the wrong way," Mr Gottschalck told the AP news agency. "This is pretty rare."

Illinois State Rep.: 'Maybe the Police Are Killing Some of These Kids' 19 Jul 2013 An Illinois state representative has publicly raised the possibility that Chicago police officers might be the ones responsible for the unsolved murders of black youths in Chicago. WBBM Newsradio reports state Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) was interviewed about Chicago crime Tuesday on WCHB-AM in Detroit. "I'm going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they're not sure that black people are shooting all of these children," Davis said. "There's some suspicion - and I don't want to spread this, but I'm just going to tell you what I've been hearing - they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids." [*Exactly.*]

Obama May Cancel Moscow Trip as Tensions Build Over Leaker

July 19, 2013 by legitgov

Obama May Cancel Moscow Trip as Tensions Build Over Leaker 19 Jul 2013 President Obama may cancel a scheduled trip to Moscow to meet with President Vladimir V. Putin in September as the standoff over the fate of Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor seeking asylum there, takes its toll on already strained relations between the United States and Russia, officials said Thursday. While the White House may be using the meeting as leverage to win cooperation as it seeks the return to the United States of Mr. Snowden, who is now staying at a Moscow airport, the reconsideration also reflects a broader concern that the two countries are far apart on issues like Syria, Iran, arms control and missile defense [and drones, illegal worldwide surveillance, and US imperialism].

Detroit files for bankruptcy, stage set for court fight 18 Jul 2013 Detroit filed the largest-ever municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history on Thursday, marking a new low for a city that was the cradle of the U.S. automotive industry and setting the stage for a costly court battle with creditors. The bankruptcy, if approved by a federal judge, would force Detroit's thousands of creditors into negotiations with the city's Emergency Manager unelected corpora-terrorist troll Kevyn Orr to resolve an estimated $18.5 billion in debt that has crippled Michigan's largest city. The future of retiree pension and health benefits for thousands of city workers hangs in the balance.

Officials say new anti-leak measures set at NSA 18 Jul 2013 The National Security Agency is implementing new security measures because of the disclosures by former NSA-systems-analyst-turned-fugitive Edward Snowden, a top defense officials said Thursday. NSA chief Keith Alexander said his agency had implemented a "two-man rule," under which any system administrator like Snowden could only access or move key information with another administrator present.
