Julian Assange reveals GCHQ messages discussing Swedish extradition 19 May 2013 Authorities at GCHQ, the government eavesdropping agency, are facing embarrassing revelations about internal correspondence in which Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is discussed, apparently including speculation that he is being framed by Swedish authorities seeking his extradition on rape allegations. The records were revealed by Assange himself in a Sunday night interview with Spanish television programme Salvados in which he explained that an official request for information gave him access to instant messages that remained unclassified by GCHQ. A message from September 2012, read out by Assange, apparently says: "They are trying to arrest him on suspicion of XYZ... It is definitely a fit-up... Their timings are too convenient right after Cablegate."

The contracts include services, spare parts and associated equipment.

Request to photograph Boston bombing suspect denied 18 May 2013 A federal magistrate has refused a request from lawyers for the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect that would allow them to take "current and periodic" photographs of him, which would have been kept from the government. In an order on Friday, Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler said Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's request "fails to establish that future photographs are subject to the attorney client privilege." Tsarnaev, 19, is hospitalized at a federal prison facility northwest of Boston after being captured and charged in connection with the April 15 bombing attack.

Fresh wave of violence kills 16 people in Iraq 19 May 2013 At least 16 people have been killed in a fresh wave of violence in Iraq, one day after multiple bomb blasts left over 60 people dead in the country. The deadliest attack occurred when gunmen broke into the house of an anti-terrorism police captain in a southern suburb of Baghdad on Saturday. The armed men killed Captain Adnan Ibrahim, his wife and two children, aged eight and 10. The attackers fled the scene, and killed another policeman who tried to stop them at a nearby checkpoint.

Bombs targeting Sunnis kill at least 76 in Iraq 17 May 2013 Bombs struck Sunni districts in Baghdad and surrounding areas Friday, killing at least 76 people in the deadliest day in Iraq in more than eight months, officials said, as a spike in [mercenary-generated] violence has created fears that the country could be on the path to a new round of sectarian bloodshed. The attacks in Baghdad and surrounding areas pushed the three-day Iraqi death toll to 130. Tensions have intensified since Sunnis began protesting what they say is mistreatment at the hands of the [US-installed] Shiite-led government regime, including random detentions and neglect [and shutting down the press].

Wisconsin bill would ban mandatory flu shots

May 19, 2013 by legitgov

Wisconsin bill would ban mandatory flu shots --5 states considering legislation that would either require either require workers to get vaccinated for flu or order employers to make vaccine available, according to National Conference of State Legislatures 19 May 2013 Wisconsin employers, including hospitals, nursing homes and other health care agencies, could no longer require workers to get flu shots under a bill pending in the Legislature. Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt, R-Fond du Lac, said he began drafting the legislation after several hospital workers and health care contractors in his district complained they were fired after refusing to be vaccinated. The bill would require employers to provide information about the risks and benefits of vaccination and allow employees reasonable time to consider it. They could not demote, suspend, discharge or discriminate against employees who refuse. "No one should have to choose between losing employment and having a large, ineffective vaccine injected into their body," Thiesfeldt said in a memo attached to the proposal. [Exactly!]

Deaf, Blind Dog Kicked Out of Calif. Park 24 Apr 2013 (Orcutt, CA) A fragile dog kicked out of a local park because of its size. The owner takes "Billy" to Woof Park where a sign used to allow 'small and timid' dogs. But now that sign reads 'small dogs' only. Marty Niles says her dog Billy has been going to the small dog park at Waller Park for more than a year but was kicked out last week because he was too big. For Niles, it's a struggle just to get Billy out of the car. "He can't see," says Niles. "He bumps into the walls." This is Billy's favorite park but last week, Niles says Billy was kicked out. "A park ranger showed up and said this is for small dogs only and tried to explain to the park ranger that Bill is not only deaf but he's nearly totally blind," says Niles.

Let Blind, Deaf Dog Back in His Favorite Park!

May 19, 2013 by legitgov

Let Blind, Deaf Dog Back in His Favorite Park! 19 May 2013 Billy the dog doesn't play rough. He's older, blind, and deaf, which means that dogs his size tend to bully and scare him. So for several years, his owner has been taking him to the "small or timid dog" section of the local dog park. Last week, though, a park ranger told Billy's owner that Billy had to play with the big dogs or get out. He said that Billy's section of the park was for small dogs only, and that it didn't matter that Billy's disability meant that he couldn't protect himself if any dogs his own size decided to get rowdy. Ask the Santa Barbara County Parks Office to let Billy and his owner back into the part of the park where he felt and was safe! (Petition)

Shell and BP bosses met in secret to fix oil prices - whistleblower

May 19, 2013 by legitgov

Shell and BP bosses met in secret to fix oil prices - whistleblower 18 May 2013 The ex-boss of Shell held top-secret meetings with the BP chief, an insider claimed last night. Jeroen van der Veer entertained John Browne strictly ALONE at his London HQ once a year, a former Shell worker said. The whistleblower claimed the office was swept for bugs before the talks, lasting nearly two hours. The firms face claims of 'price fixing'. He added: “The security around their meetings was incredible. There was lock-down. The whole floor was a no-go area for anyone else... "It's common knowledge they were talking about oil prices." Offices of both companies were raided this week in a probe over price fixing allegations going back a decade. It is feared it could have cost Britain's 31million drivers up to £10,000 each.

Pentagon Spec Ops Chief Sees '10 to 20' More Years of War Against al-Qaida 16 May 2013 The Pentagon's chief of irregular warfare still sees a war against al-Qaida that will last decades, all over the world -- a prospect that prompted astonishment and constitutional debate in the Senate. Asked at a Senate hearing today how long the war on terrorism will last, Michael Sheehan, the assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict, answered, "at least 10 to 20 years." It was just two months ago that the top U.S. intelligence official testified that al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] had been battered by the U.S. into a state of disarray... Yet a spokeswoman, Army Col. Anne Edgecomb, clarified that Sheehan meant the conflict is likely to last 10 to 20 more years from today -- atop the 12 years that the conflict has already lasted.

9/11 Phone Calls: Disturbing Irregularities Uncovered in Calls that Flashed around the World

May 19, 2013 by legitgov

The 9/11 Phone Calls: Disturbing Irregularities Uncovered in the Calls that Flashed around the World 16 May 2013 The 9/11 Consensus Panel offers four evidence-based Points about the alleged phone calls from the 9/11 flights. The famous "let's roll" drama of the passenger revolt on UA 93 was relayed by passenger Todd Beamer's 13-minute unrecorded seat-back call to GTE telephone supervisor Lisa Jefferson, who reported Beamer as strangely tranquil, declining to speak to his wife. Eerily, Beamer's line remained open for 15 minutes after the crash. Oddly, the Verizon wireless record shows that 19 calls were made from Beamer's cell phone long after the crash of UA 93. Initial media reports and FBI interviews detailed more than a dozen cell phone calls from the planes at high elevation. Yet in 2001, a telephone spokesperson stated that sustained mobile calls were not possible above 10,000 feet.

Mountain of Petroleum Coke From Oil Sands Rises in Detroit

Mountain of Petroleum Coke From Oil Sands Rises in Detroit 18 May 2013 Assumption Park gives residents of this city lovely views of the Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit skyline. Lately they've been treated to another sight: a three-story pile of petroleum coke covering an entire city block on the other side of the Detroit River. Detroit's ever-growing black mountain is the unloved, unwanted and long overlooked byproduct of Canada's oil sands boom. And no one knows quite what to do about it, except Koch Carbon, which owns it. The company is controlled by Charles and David Koch, wealthy industrialists terrorists who back a number of conservative and libertarian causes including activist groups that challenge the science behind climate change global warming. The company sells the high-sulfur, high-carbon waste, usually overseas, where it is burned as fuel. "What is really, really disturbing to me is how some companies treat the city of Detroit as a dumping ground," said Rashida Tlaib, the Michigan state representative for that part of Detroit.

Puzzling! Swine flu virus detected in elephant seals off West Coast

Puzzling! Swine flu virus detected in elephant seals off West Coast --'The question is, where did it come from?' 18 May 2013 The H1N1 [lab-generated] virus strain that caused a 2009 swine flu outbreak in humans was detected in northern elephant seals off the coast of central California. Scientists say this is the first time marine mammals have been found to carry the H1N1 flu strain, which originated in pigs. The seals seem to have picked up the virus while at sea, but it's unclear how this happened. "We thought we might find influenza viruses, which have been found before in marine mammals, but we did not expect to find pandemic H1N1," Tracey Goldstein, an associate professor with the UC Davis One Health Institute and Wildlife Health Center, said in a statement.

Radioactive leak found at Palisades Nuclear Power Plant

May 18, 2013 by legitgov

Radioactive leak found at Palisades Nuclear Power Plant 17 May 2013 Investigators have discovered a half-inch long crack around a nozzle on one of the tanks of the Palisades Nuclear Power Plant, and have attributed the crack to the water leakage that spilled radioactive water into Lake Michigan on May 5. The plant, which is located on the shore of the Great Lake and operated by Entergy, was shut down after the water tank exceeded its site threshold and leaked. Authorities say the crack led to about 79 gallons of "slightly [?] radioactive water" spilling from the Palisades plant into the lake, WOOD-TV reports. The leak came from a 300,000-gallon injection and refueling tank, which floods and cools the nuclear reactor with borated water during refueling outages. It also removes heat from the reactor when there is a loss of coolant by sourcing the safety injection system.

5.9 earthquake strikes Japan off Fukushima coast 18 May 2013 (MI) An earthquake with a magnitude measured at 5.9 by Japan's Meteorological Agency has struck the northeast of the country.

At Guantanamo, a costly confinement

At Guantanamo, a costly confinement --Military about to spend millions more to 'upgrade' Guantanamo prison camp 17 May 2013 Not only has Guantanamo Bay become a lightning rod for America's critics -- it's no prize for America's taxpayers, either. Running the prison camp costs the Pentagon more than $150 million a year -- just over $900,000 for each of the 166 detainees at the facility, located on a Navy base on the eastern end of Cuba. By comparison, costs for a typical federal prison inmate run about $25,000 a year; at the "supermax" prison in Colorado that holds domestic terrorists Eric Rudolph and Ted Kaczynski, it's about $60,000. The military is about to spend millions more to upgrade the prison camp.
