May 1, 2012 by legitgov

Navy Nears Power Deal to Help Avoid Calif. Blackouts 30 Apr 2012 The U.S. Navy is nearing a first-time agreement to curb electricity use at its sprawling San Diego-area bases if power runs short in Southern California this summer, a deal intended to diminish the threat of blackouts while the troubled San Onofre nuclear plant remains offline. The Navy is San Diego Gas & Electric's largest customer, and the utility has been working on an agreement under which the Navy would temporarily reduce its energy consumption if regional supplies get scarce. In exchange, the Navy would receive a break on electricity rates.

May 1, 2012 by legitgov

White powder envelopes close NYC bank branches 01 May 2012 A rash of incidents involving envelopes containing a suspicious white powder had police scrambling around New York City on Monday and forced the nation's fourth-biggest bank, Wells Fargo & Co, to shut down five branches. In all six cases, the substance turned out to be "non-hazardous," and in one case, the powder was identified as corn starch, a police spokesman said. Four of the mailed envelopes contained an identical note, which included the language "Happy May Day," the spokesman said.

May 1, 2012 by legitgov

Envelopes With White Powder Sent to NYC Mayor and 6 Banks --The message led some officials to speculate that the mailings had been orchestrated by [wait for it... it's good...] the Occupy Wall Street movement. 01 May 2012 On the eve of planned May Day protests across the country, envelopes containing white powder were sent to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and six banks in Manhattan, officials said Monday. The envelopes, intended to frighten their recipients but later found to be harmless, caused evacuations and shutdowns of the bank branches and a city building while the Police and Fire Departments investigated. No person or group immediately claimed responsibility for the mailings. [That's because the agencies 'investigating' the envelopes are likely the agencies who sent them.]

In Suit, Protesters Say City Violated Their Constitutional Rights 30 Apr 2012 The City of New York, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and several large corporations have regularly violated the constitutional rights of Occupy Wall Street protesters who have sought to express their opinions at various demonstrations across the city, according to a wide-ranging federal lawsuit filed on Monday. The lawsuit, which included several City Council members as plaintiffs, said that the city "in concert with various private and public entities" subjected the plaintiffs to "violations of rights to free speech, assembly, freedom of the press, false arrest, excessive force, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution." At times, the Police Department had improperly photographed people who were arrested and may not have destroyed those pictures, when required by law, according to the lawsuit, which was filed in United States District Court in Manhattan.

It was unclear Monday, the second full day the North Line was shut, how long it might be down.

Stop the Slaughter of U.S. Turtles

May 1, 2012 by legitgov

Stop the Slaughter of U.S. Turtles 30 Apr 2012 Freshwater turtles are facing more and more devastating overharvest in the United States for sale to the pet industry and food and medicinal markets in Asia. Beautiful map turtles are already endangered, and unregulated international trade is rapidly destroying them and other native turtles. Protection under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species would put limits on international trade and monitor their populations. In response to a petition filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently announced that it may propose 17 species of U.S. freshwater turtles for CITES protection at the next meeting in Thailand. Please take action now to tell the Service to protect U.S. freshwater turtles.

Officials Watch for Terrorists With Body Bombs on US-Bound Planes 30 Apr 2012 With the anniversary of 'Osama bin Laden's' death looming, American and European authorities told ABC News today that they fear al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] may soon try to explode U.S.-bound aircraft with explosives hidden inside the bodies of terrorists.

RFK assassination witness tells CNN: There was second shooter --Witness says FBI altered her account of RFK shooting 30 Apr 2012 As a federal court prepares to rule on a challenge to Sirhan Sirhan's conviction in the Robert F. Kennedy assassination, a long overlooked witness to the murder is telling her story: She heard two guns firing during the 1968 shooting and authorities altered her account of the crime. Nina Rhodes-Hughes wants the world to know that, despite what history says, Sirhan was not the only gunman firing shots when Kennedy was murdered a few feet away from her at a Los Angeles hotel. "What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right," Rhodes-Hughes said in an exclusive interview with CNN.

Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.

Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I. By David K. Shipler 29 Apr 2012 The United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years - or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts. But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.

To Joliet Jail for NATO offenders?

To Joliet Jail for NATO offenders? 29 Apr 2012 Mothballed for a decade, the Joliet Correctional Center could be temporarily reopened to serve as a detention facility for those arrested for serious offenses during the May 20-21 NATO summit. Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says his first choice was to use Division 3 at Cook County Jail before the once-empty division had to be filled with detainees [?!?] over the last two months... Dart said the solution that makes the most sense is Joliet, the hulk of a prison facility mothballed in 2002.

Report: NATO Misleads With 'Afghan-Led' Label

April 29, 2012 by legitgov

Report: NATO Misleads With 'Afghan-Led' Label 25 Apr 2012 A new report Wednesday by a Kabul-based think tank accuses international forces of misleading the public by calling military operations "Afghan-led" even in cases where NATO or U.S. forces are the only troops on the ground. In the transition [NATO to hand over security to Afghan control], one phrase -- "Afghan-led" -- has become increasingly prevalent in NATO and U.S. news releases describing operations. The report charges alleges that the term has been so loosely applied that it has, in at least once instance, been used for an assault conducted entirely by U.S. troops.

UK police state gone wild: Surface-to-air missiles on top of flats to protect Olympics as part of huge security operation --Ministry of Defence confirmed missiles would be deployed within next few days 28 Apr 2012 Ground-to-air missiles are to be sited on the roof of a block of flats near the Olympic site as part of a huge security operation to protect the Games.

Senate probe finds little evidence of effective 'torture' 27 Apr 2012 A nearly three-year-long investigation by Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats is expected to find there is little evidence the harsh "enhanced interrogation techniques" the CIA used on high-value prisoners produced counter-terrorism breakthroughs. People familiar with the inquiry said committee investigators, who have been poring over records from the regime of President [sic] George W. Bush, believe they do not substantiate claims by some Bush supporters that the harsh interrogations led to counter-terrorism coups.

Failed Equipment, Flawed Designs Plague Lockheed Littoral Combat Ship

April 28, 2012 by legitgov

Failed Equipment, Flawed Designs Plague Lockheed Littoral Combat Ship 23 Apr 2012 POGO sent a letter today to the Senate and House Armed Services Committees recommending that an expensive and severely flawed variant of the Littoral Combat Ship program be eliminated. The letter comes on the heels of POGO's release of Navy documents revealing serious cracking and corrosion problems with the ship--along with evidence of dangerous equipment failures... There are two variants of the LCS: one built by a team led by General Dynamics, which will cost $345.8 million per ship and the other built by a team led by Lockheed Martin, which will cost $357.5 million per ship. As we've reported, the General Dynamics LCS has some problems with corrosion. But the Lockheed Martin version can hardly even make it out of the harbor. As we wrote in our letter, POGO has obtained a number of documents showing that Lockheed Martin's USS Freedom has been "plagued by flawed designs and failed equipment since being commissioned, has at least 17 known cracks, and has repeatedly been beset by engine-related failures." [End welfare for corpora-terrorists Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics!]

U.S. ban sought on cell phone use while driving

U.S. ban sought on cell phone use while driving 26 Apr 2012 U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood called on Thursday for a federal law to ban talking on a cell phone or texting while driving any type of vehicle on any road in the country. Tough federal legislation is the only way to deal with what he called a "national epidemic," he said at a distracted-driving summit in San Antonio, Texas, that drew doctors, advocates and government officials. LaHood has previously criticized behind-the-wheel use of cell phones and other devices, but calling for a federal law prohibiting the practice takes his effort to a new level.
