Fukushima Plant Operator Intends to Restart Reactors Elsewhere

July 3, 2013 by legitgov

Fukushima Plant Operator Intends to Restart Reactors Elsewhere 03 Jul 2013 The operator of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant said Tuesday that it would ask regulators to allow it to restart two reactors at a separate site in eastern Japan, even as problems with the company's 'cleanup' in Fukushima continue to multiply. The request by the operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, is expected to be among a flurry of such appeals from utilities seeking to restart reactors now that the government has approved tougher safety guidelines. The Tokyo Electric Power Company, known as Tepco, said it would soon apply to restart two of the seven reactors at its Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant, the world's biggest nuclear power station by capacity. That plant, about 140 miles northeast of Tokyo, sits atop fault lines and was damaged in a 2007 quake caused by another fault.

Egypt army plans for after Mursi as clock ticks 02 Jul 2013 Egypt's army has plans to push Mohamed Mursi aside and suspend the constitution after an all but impossible ultimatum it has given the Islamist president expires in less than 24 hours, military sources told Reuters on Tuesday. Condemning a coup against their first freely elected leader, tens of thousands of Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood supporters took to the streets, clashing with opponents in several towns. But they appeared to be dwarfed by anti-government protesters who turned out in their hundreds of thousands across the nation. Troops were on alert after warnings of a potential civil war.

Edward Snowden seeks asylum in 20 nations, but gets no immediate takers

Edward Snowden seeks asylum in 20 nations, but gets no immediate takers 02 Jul 2013 NSA leaker Edward Snowden's best chance of finding refuge outside the United States may hinge on the president of Venezuela, who was in Moscow on Tuesday meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela told Russian reporters on Tuesday that his country has not received an application for asylum from Snowden and dodged the question of whether he would take Snowden with him when he left. But Maduro also defended the former National Security Agency systems analyst who released sensitive documents on U.S. intelligence-gathering operations.

Syria: 3,500 tons of weapons already sent to 'rebels,' says Lord Ashdown

July 2, 2013 by legitgov

Syria: 3,500 tons of weapons already sent to 'rebels,' says Lord Ashdown 02 Jul 2013 Lord Ashdown, the former Liberal Democrat leader, spoke out against arming Syria's 'rebels' and called for pressure to be put on Qatar and Saudi Arabia to cut off funding for arms. "They do not need arms. It is an unchallenged figure that 3,500 tons of arms have been shipped in by way of Croatia with the assistance of the CIA, funded by the Saudis, funded by the Qataris, going almost exclusively to the more jihadist groups," the former international high representative for Bosnia said in a debate. "I know where those weapons are coming from. They are the weapons left over from the Bosnian war. They are being shipped out in large measure through Croatian ports and airports and I can tell you they are making vast sums for corrupt forces in the Balkans." Lord Ashdown described the rebels as "not a fit and proper collection of people for us to be providing arms to". [Right, they're CIAcioapths.]

Google: CLG News 'does not comply with Names Policy'

Google: CLG News 'does not comply with Names Policy' by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 02 Jul 2013 NSA buddy Google will not allow CLG News on Google+. After receiving countless promos at from Google to set up a 'Google+' account, I clicked to 'upgrade' to Google+. Google requested I select a different name, even though my Gmail address -- established years ago -- is clgnews at gmail dot com. When I declined to select another name, Google presented the option to 'click to appeal' to use CLG News as the owner for CLG News on Google+. On 28 June, I received an email from Google, which included the following comments.

After reviewing your appeal, we have determined that your name does not comply with the Google+ Names Policy. We want users to be able to find each other using the name they already use with their friends, family, and coworkers. For most people this is their legal name, or some variant of it, but we recognize that this isn't always the case, and we allow for other common names in Google+ -- specifically, those that represent an individual with an established online identity with a meaningful following.

CLG News, in fact, has a HUGE and 'established online identity with a meaningful following,' although NSA buddy Google doesn't 'see' that. Or, maybe they do, and that's the problem...

Immigration deal would boost defense manufacturers

Immigration deal would boost defense manufacturers 01 Jul 2013 The border security plan the Senate approved last week includes unusual language mandating the purchase of specific models of helicopters and radar equipment for deployment along the U.S.-Mexican border, providing a potential windfall worth tens of millions of dollars to top defense contractors. The legislation would require the U.S. Border Patrol to acquire, among other items, six Northrop Grumman airborne radar systems that cost $9.3 million each, 15 Sikorsky Black Hawk helicopters that average more than $17 million apiece, and eight light enforcement helicopters made by American Eurocopter that sell for about $3 million each. The legislation also calls for 17 UH-1N helicopters made by Bell Helicopter, an older model that the company no longer manufactures.

Snowden accuses Obama of blocking asylum requests 02 Jul 2013 US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden has accused President Barack Obama of denying him his right to asylum, in a statement published by Wikileaks. It is his first public announcement since flying to Russia on 23 June, where he has applied for asylum. The former CIA analyst, who is holed up in a Moscow airport hotel, is wanted by the US on charges of espionage. He says President Obama is putting pressure on the countries from which he has requested political asylum.

Dr Sarah Jarvis, a GP, told Sky News: "The vaccination has been routinely used for many years in other countries. Overall it looks [!?] extremely safe."

Egypt's military gives Morsi 48-hour ultimatum, threatens to intervene

July 2, 2013 by legitgov

Egypt's military gives Morsi 48-hour ultimatum, threatens to intervene 01 Jul 2013 Egypt's military on Monday said mass protests calling for the resignation of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi were an "unprecedented" expression of the will of the people and gave the government 48 hours to meet the opposition's demands. In a statement read on state television just hours after the headquarters of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood movement were ransacked, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said if this did not happen the army would intervene. The protesters' main demands are that Morsi announce early elections and step down, allowing a temporary government to take over.

Death Valley hit hottest U.S. June temperature ever recorded Sunday: 129

July 2, 2013 by legitgov

Death Valley hit hottest U.S. June temperature ever recorded Sunday: 129 01 Jul 2013 On Sunday, the National Weather Service reported Death Valley had surged to 128 degrees. But, in an update this morning, it reports the mercury touched 129 degrees at its peak, a new monthly record and a tie for the hottest June temperature ever recorded in the U.S. (assuming it is validated). Confusion arose Sunday about what whether Death Valley had reached 128 or 129. The 128-degree reading reported Sunday was the preliminary high as of 4 p.m. mountain time, said Chris Stachelski, a forecaster at the National Weather Service. But, the National Park Service, which is responsible for measurements using a mercury thermometer, said the high reached 129 in its final report just issued, and provided photographic evidence.

Thousands of fish die in contaminated Mexico reservoir --At least 500 tonnes of carp and bream killed - fishing cooperative member 02 Jul 2013 Thousands of fish turned up dead in a western Mexico reservoir after a company that made food for livestock without a permit dumped huge amounts of molasses into the water, authorities said Monday. The fish were deprived of oxygen after the company poured hundreds of liters of molasses into the canal that feeds into the Hurtado Reservoir in the state of Jalisco, the mayor of Acatlan de Juarez, Emeterio Corona, told AFP.

Potential witness must be jailed until leaving US --Civil rights group wants to speak with her about FBI shooting inquiry 29 Jun 2013 An immigration judge has ordered a potential witness in the investigation into the fatal shooting of a Chechen man by an FBI agent last month to leave the United States no later than July 1, and to remain in jail until she departs, raising an outcry from a civil rights group seeking a full accounting of the man's death. Federal immigration officials arrested Tatiana Igorevna Gruzdeva, a 19-year-old aspiring foreign language teacher from Russia, on May 16 for overstaying her visa. They discovered the violation when the FBI and other law enforcement officials began investigating Ibragim Todashev, her roommate in Orlando, about his ties to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. Six days later, a Boston FBI agent shot and killed 27-year-old Todashev in their apartment.

Thousands rally against Texas abortion bill on first day of new special session 01 Jul 2013 The Texas Capitol became the center of America's abortion debate again on Monday as thousands of demonstrators were on hand to voice opposition to Republican-backed legislation that would dramatically limit abortion rights in the state. The protests came at the start of a special legislative session called by Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry after a bill that would have essentially ban most abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy was halted last week. The effort was led by Democratic state Senator Wendy Davis, who became a national icon for abortion-rights advocates after standing for hours to filibuster the legislation.

Ohio governor, flanked by six men, signs stringent abortion restrictions into law 01 Jul 2013 It is a striking image: Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, flanked by six men, signing stringent abortion restrictions into law as part of the state's new budget Sunday night. Karen Kasler, a local reporter for Ohio Public Radio and TV's Statehouse News Bureau, captured the image and shared it on Twitter, where it received a flurry of comments asking: "Where are the women?" While there were female reporters in the room, no female elected officials were present.

Snowden Seeks Russian Asylum as Putin Says Leaks Must End 01 Jul 2013 President Vladimir Putin said Edward Snowden must quit hurting American interests should he hope to remain in Russia, after an official said the fugitive U.S. leaker applied for asylum there. "If he wants to stay, there’s one condition: He must stop his activity aimed at harming our American partners, as strange as it sounds coming from my lips," Putin, a frequent critic of U.S. policy, told reporters in the Kremlin yesterday. Putin said Snowden is unlikely to accept that restriction.

Mitch McConnell in 2014. Grimes, a Lexington lawyer in her first term as secretary of state, has been conducting "due diligence" about entering the race since late April.

Obama Pledges $7 Billion to Upgrade Power in Africa

July 1, 2013 by legitgov

Obama Pledges $7 Billion to Upgrade Power in Africa 30 Jun 2013 U.S. President Barack Obama pledged $7 billion Sunday to help combat frequent power blackouts in sub-Saharan Africa. Funds from the initiative, dubbed Power Africa, will be distributed over the next five years. Obama made the announcement during his trip to South Africa, the continent's biggest economy. The program includes $1.5 billion from the U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation and $5 billion from the Export-Import Bank, the White House said. Sub-Saharan Africa will need more than $300 billion to achieve universal electricity access by 2030, it said. [Once again, US taxpayers are spending BILLIONS on another bl*job for US corpora-terrorists to PRETEND to build/upgrade power grids in another country! US taxpayers have spent BILLIONS to 'build' power grids in IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN -- seemingly, EVERY COUNTRY ON EARTH -- EXCEPT the US! US infrastructure is CRUMBLING, but Congress won't appropriate a nickel to fix any of the THOUSANDS of unsafe bridges across America or, God forbid, give a air traffic controller overtime. The reason why the hypocritical Republicans in Congress (except for Rand Paul and a few others) have no objection to pouring billions into 'upgrading' infrastructure in other nations is that they know such projects will NEVER be completed (Iraq, Afghanistan) and the only BENEFACTORS to these pseudo-humanitarian (and 'security') projects are US CORPORA-TERRORISTS, immune from oversight. That's why the GOP wants to spend $50 billion to 'secure the border' while simultaneously voting to cut food stamps and slash aid to the poor. --LRP]

He admits leaking the cables while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq but denies stealing them.

Military faults guards in Guantanamo captive's suicide by overdose

July 1, 2013 by legitgov

Military faults guards in Guantánamo captive's suicide by overdose 28 Jun 2013 A U.S. military investigation found Guantánamo troops didn't follow their own rules, allowing a captive to take a fatal overdose of an anti-psychotic drug a day after he was moved into a disciplinary cell from the detention center's psychiatric ward. A 79-page report, released Friday under the Freedom of Information Act, showed the "standard operating procedures," or SOP, governing the U.S. Army Military Police required soldiers to regularly check on captives kept in solitary cells at Camp 5, Guantánamo's maximum-security lockup. Troops didn't do it for at least two shift changes before Yemeni captive Adnan Latif was discovered dead on the floor of his Camp 5 cell at the U.S. Navy base in southeast Cuba on Sept. 8, 2012.

Berlin accuses Washington of cold war tactics over snooping --Reports of NSA snooping on Europe go well beyond previous revelations of electronic spying 30 Jun 2013 Transatlantic relations plunged at the weekend as Berlin, Brussels and Paris all demanded that Washington account promptly and fully for new disclosures on the scale of the US National Security Agency's spying on its European allies. As further details emerged of the huge reach of US electronic snooping on Europe, Berlin accused Washington of treating it like the Soviet Union, "like a cold war enemy". The European commission called on the US to clarify allegations that the NSA, operating from Nato headquarters a few miles away in Brussels, had infiltrated secure telephone and computer networks at the venue for EU summits in the Belgian capital.

U.S. justices block generic drug liability lawsuits

U.S. justices block generic drug liability lawsuits 24 Jun 2013 The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that generic drugmakers cannot be sued under state law for adverse reactions to their products, a decision that consumer advocates called a blow to patient safety. In a 5-4 vote, the court ruled for Mutual Pharmaceutical Co, owned by Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd, overturning a multimillion-dollar jury award to a badly injured patient in New Hampshire who alleged a generic drug she had taken was unsafe based on its chemical design. The majority opinion, written by Justice [sic] Samuel Alito, said the state's law could not run against federal laws on prescription medicines whose design has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Crew of 19 elite firefighters killed in Arizona wildfire --Only one survivor from hotshot unit trained to venture into remote areas, which was overtaken by rapidly moving blaze 01 Jul 2013 Nineteen firefighters have died in Arizona after being caught in one of the deadliest wildfires in the US for decades, which destroyed scores of homes and forced the evacuation of two small towns north-west of Phoenix. The specially trained "hotshot" firefighters were forced to deploy their fire shelters – tent-like structures meant to shield them from flames and heat – when they were caught near an Arizona town, state forestry spokesman Art Morrison told the Associated Press.

Snowden revelations will continue, says Assange

Snowden revelations will continue, says Assange 30 Jun 2013 Julian Assange, the founder of the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks, said Sunday that even as Edward J. Snowden remained in diplomatic limbo at a Moscow airport, the disclosures from the classified documents he took as a National Security Agency contractor would continue. "Look, there is no stopping the publishing process at this stage," Assange said on the ABC News program "This Week." Assange, speaking from the Ecuadorean Embassy in London where he has been ensconced for more the a year after being granted asylum, praised Snowden's actions and compared his plight with his own. He said Snowden was likely to be indicted by a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Va., that Assange said was "made up of the CIA, Pentagon."

Former NSA, CIA director: 'The United States does conduct espionage'

July 1, 2013 by legitgov

Former NSA, CIA director: 'The United States does conduct espionage' 30 Jun 2013 "The United States does conduct espionage," and the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protecting the privacy of American citizens "is not an international treaty," former CIA and National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden said Sunday on "Face the Nation," after a German magazine cited secret intelligence documents to charge U.S. spies of bugging European Union offices. Earlier Sunday, top German official Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger accused the United States of using "Cold War" methods against its allies. Her statement came in response to a report in the German news weekly Der Spiegel, which, citing some of the top-secret documents leaked by former government contractor Edward Snowden, claimed the NSA had eavesdropped on EU offices in Washington, New York and Brussels.

Inner workings of a top-secret spy program

Inner workings of a top-secret spy program 29 Jun 2013 The National Security Agency’s PRISM program, which collects intelligence from Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Apple and other tech giants, is "targeted" at foreigners. But it also collects the e-mail, voice, text and video chats of an unknown number of Americans -- "inadvertently," "incidentally" or deliberately if an American is conversing with a foreign target overseas. Here are new details on how the program works, from top-secret documents and interviews.

E.U. fury on allegations of U.S. spying 30 Jun 2013 European leaders reacted with fury on Sunday to allegations in a German magazine that the United States had conducted a wide-ranging effort to monitor European Union diplomatic offices and computer networks, with some saying that they expected such surveillance from enemies, not their closest economic partner. It was the latest fallout from National Security Agency information apparently leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor whose detailing of classified information on the agency’s programs has shined a rare light on U.S. surveillance efforts that range far wider than previously understood.

NSA collected US email records in bulk for more than two years under Obama

June 30, 2013 by legitgov

NSA collected US email records in bulk for more than two years under Obama --Secret program launched by Bush continued 'until 2011' --Fisa court renewed collection order every 90 days --Current NSA programs still mine US internet metadata 27 Jun 2013 The Obama administration for more than two years permitted the National Security Agency to continue collecting vast amounts of records detailing the email and internet usage of Americans, according to secret documents obtained by the Guardian. The documents indicate that under the program, launched in 2001, a federal judge sitting on the secret surveillance panel called the Fisa court would approve a bulk collection order for internet metadata "every 90 days". A senior administration official confirmed the program, stating that it ended in 2011. The collection of these records began under the Bush regime's wide-ranging warrantless surveillance program, collectively known by the NSA codename Stellar Wind. According to a top-secret draft report by the NSA's inspector general - published for the first time today by the Guardian - the agency began "collection of bulk internet metadata" involving "communications with at least one communicant outside the United States or for which no communicant was known to be a citizen of the United States".

Secret-court judges upset at portrayal of 'collaboration' with government

Secret-court judges upset at portrayal of 'collaboration' with government 30 Jun 2013 Recent leaks of classified documents have pointed to the role of a special court in enabling the government's secret surveillance programs, but members of the court are chafing at the suggestion that they were collaborating with the executive branch. A classified 2009 draft report by the National Security Agency's inspector general relayed some details about the interaction between the court's judges and the NSA, which sought approval for the Bush regime's top-secret domestic surveillance programs. The report was described in The Washington Post on June 16 and released in full Thursday by The Post and The Guardian. U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, the former chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, took the highly unusual step Friday of voicing open frustration at the account in the report and court's inability to explain its decisions.

Alleged Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza was a vegan and 'talented student' who earned mostly As 30 Jun 2013 In September of his eighth-grade year, Adam Lanza was wracked by anxiety, his mother told doctors. So intense were the feelings that Nancy Lanza drove him to the emergency room at Danbury Hospital for an evaluation... But the trouble was not with his performance in the classroom, according to his seventh-grade report cards from Newtown Middle School and St. Rose of Lima. The first three marking periods of his seventh-grade year were spent at Newtown Middle School where he earned mostly A's. Teachers described him as having a "positive attitude," being "fully engaged, respectful" and "eager to succeed." And he was praised not just for academics -- he earned an A in gym class, and his band teacher called him a "talented student." Medical records state that Lanza was vegan, meaning he did not consume any animal products, by the time he was 13. [Exactly. Sandy Hook was a false flag, six ways to Sunday. --LRP]
