US prepares $1B aid package for Ukraine

US prepares $1B aid package for Ukraine 04 Mar 2014 Secretary of State John Kerry met in Ukraine with the new government's acting president, prime minister, foreign minister and top parliamentary officials. The Obama administration announced a $1 billion energy subsidy package in Washington as Kerry was arriving in Kiev. "We will be helping," Kerry said. "We are helping. President Obama is planning more assistance." [Of course he will. And, the same dirt-bags who *can't wait* to vote to give a billion US tax dollars to support the CIA's fascist coup in the Ukraine likely voted to slash food stamps and heating oil assistance for the poor, citing the 'deficit.' Start reading.]

Rick Scott's 'literally flying under the radar'

Rick Scott's 'literally flying under the radar' 03 Mar 2014 Not many governors have their own private jets. It's something of which Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) apparently takes full advantage, and not just for the sake of convenience at the airport. By using his personal jet for public business, Florida Gov. Rick Scott can shield his itinerary from websites that track flights, and when his plane lands, he uses a public records exemption to tighten the cloak of secrecy. Wherever Scott goes, he is shadowed by Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents. In citing a records exemption that protects FDLE "surveillance techniques" from publication, he withholds the members of his traveling party, restaurants and homes he visits, and people at meetings -- all in the name of security.

Obama wants tax cuts for the middle class, tax increases for the wealthy

Obama wants tax cuts for the middle class, tax increases for the wealthy 03 Mar 2014 In his budget to be released Tuesday, President Barack Obama will propose expanding a tax credit popular with lower- and middle-class families and paying for it by closing a controversial tax loophole deployed by some Wall Street firms, according to the White House. Obama wants to expand the Earned Income Tax Credit, as well as programs to help Americans afford child care, send their children to college and retire. To pay for that, he would close tax loopholes that he says lets those who earn more money avoid the income and payroll taxes other workers pay.

Afghan Broadcaster Says U.S. Soldiers Abused Him

Afghan Broadcaster Says U.S. Soldiers Abused Him 02 Mar 2014 Qazi Nasir Mudassir said he had expected that if armed men climbed over the walls of his radio station's compound, they would probably be Taliban insurgents coming to make good on death threats because of his broadcasts. Instead, by his account and that of the local Afghan police, the armed men were American Special Forces troops, who scaled his walls with ladders on Thursday, arresting Mr. Mudassir and two other employees of Radio Paighame Milli. The station, which Mr. Mudassir owns, broadcasts in the Mohammad Agha district of Logar Province, an area troubled by insurgent activity, just 30 miles south of Kabul. Mr. Mudassir on Saturday accused American soldiers of beating him and threatening to kill him to extract information during his detention. They were apparently unaware, he said, that his radio station is supported in large part by pro-government, pro-coalition propaganda advertisements paid for by the American military.

US preparing sanctions against Russia over Ukraine crisis - State Department 03 Mar 2014 The United States has a broad range of options available to it to act against Russia if tensions over Ukraine escalate and Washington is currently preparing sanctions against Moscow, a State Department spokeswoman said on Monday. "At this point we are not just considering sanctions given the actions Russia is taking, it is likely we will put those in place and we are preparing that," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on a conference call. "We have a broad range of options available." If reports that Russia has threatened to use force against the Ukrainian military are true, it would be a dangerous escalation of the situation in Ukraine, the US State Department said.

Seriously, what?! Kerry tells Russia 'you don't invade a country on completely phony pretexts'

Seriously, what?! Kerry tells Russia 'you don't invade a country on completely phony pretexts' 03 Mar 2014 The US Secretary of State spoke today of the unacceptability of invading a sovereign country on phony pretexts in order to assert one's own interests in the 21st century.

"You just don't invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests," John Kerry said during an interview with NBC's Meet the [Corporate-Owned] Press... Kerry has also threatened to isolate Russia economically and politically and warned of potential asset freezes and visa bans, adding to media and political hype that followed Russia authorization of sending a stabilization force in Crimea on official request from the authorities.

Organizers estimated 1,000 people protested and said several hundred agreed to risk arrest by refusing to leave the sidewalk in front of the White House. "If the Democratic Party wants to keep our vote, they better make sure President Obama rejects that pipeline," said Nick Stracco, a 23-year-old student at Tulane University in New Orleans.

Hundreds protest dropped charges over 'man-made' Fukushima crisis

Hundreds protest dropped charges over 'man-made' Fukushima crisis 01 Mar 2014 Hundreds rallied in Tokyo Saturday to protest Japanese prosecutors' decision to drop charges over the Fukushima nuclear crisis, with no one yet punished nearly three years after the "man-made" disaster. A parliamentary report has said Fukushima was a man-made disaster caused by Japan's culture of "reflexive obedience" and not just by the tsunami that crippled the plant. Some 15,000 people whose homes or farms were hit by radiation from the stricken plant filed a criminal complaint in 2012 against the Japanese government and officials of plant operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO). However, prosecutors in September decided not to charge any of them with negligence over the nuclear disaster.

Pierre Omidyar co-funded Ukraine revolution groups with US government, documents show

Pierre Omidyar co-funded Ukraine revolution groups with US government, documents show 28 Feb 2014 Pando has confirmed that the American government -- in the form of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) -- played a major role in funding opposition groups prior to the [Ukrainian] revolution. Moreover, a large percentage of the rest of the funding to those same groups came from a US billionaire who has previously worked closely with US government agencies to further his own business interests. What's shocking is the name of the billionaire who co-invested with the US government - Pierre Omidyar. Yes, in the annals of independent media, this might be the strangest twist ever: According to financial disclosures and reports seen by Pando, the founder and publisher of Glenn Greenwald's government-bashing blog, "The Intercept," co-invested with the US government to help fund regime change in Ukraine.

Why was air quality monitor off during Bridgegate closures? EPA asked to review

Why was air quality monitor off during Bridgegate closures? EPA asked to review 28 Feb 2014 Amid all the investigations into the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge last fall, yet another inquiry has been launched by a federal agency into what happened and why. But this investigation has nothing to do with who ordered the shutdown. It focuses instead on why an air-quality monitor closest to the bridge was inoperative for a few days during the lane closures, when drivers were stuck in a massive traffic jam for hours on the busiest motor vehicle bridge in the world, spewing pollution into the air.
