April 9, 2015 by legitgov

Indictments May Be Near in George Washington Bridge Scandal | 08 April 2015 | The federal investigation into the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge appears to be coming to a head, with an announcement of indictments as early as next week. In recent weeks, people close to the case say, federal investigators have interviewed members of the Borough Council in Fort Lee, N.J., the town gridlocked when its three lanes leading to the bridge were narrowed to one for several days in September 2013 -- a move at first bewildering, and later revealed to be the result of orders from aides and allies of Gov. Chris Christie. Subpoenas have made it clear that the inquiry has gone beyond the lane closings to include possible conflicts of interest and bribery.

April 9, 2015 by legitgov

Why is the military moving back into 'Stargate' base deep under the Rocky Mountains a decade after it was abandoned? | 08 April 2015 | The Cheyenne Mountain Complex is one of the icons of the Cold War - a self-contained and sufficient town buried under the Rockies meant to be impervious to a Soviet nuclear barrage. It was home to the North American Aerospace Command (NORAD), scanning the skies for Russian missiles and the military command and control center of the United States in the event of World War Three. The high tech base entered popular culture with appearances in the 1983 Cold War thriller War Games and 1994's Stargate - which imagined the complex as a clandestine home for intergalactic travel.

They say the action was a message of defiance aimed at the authorities who "censored" the piece, according to a tumblr post.

Sen. Rand Paul launches 2016 presidential campaign | 07 April 2015 | Sen. Rand Paul launched his 2016 presidential campaign Tuesday with a combative challenge both to Washington and his fellow Republicans, cataloguing a lengthy list of what ails America and pledging to "take our country back." Paul's fiery message, delivered in his home state of Kentucky before he flew to four early-nominating states, was designed to broaden his appeal outside of the typical GOP coalition as well as motivate supporters of his father's two unsuccessful bids for the Republican presidential nomination. In a 26-minute speech that eviscerated "the Washington machine," he spared neither Republican nor Democrat as he attempted to tap into Americans' deep frustrations with their government.

U.S. secretly tracked billions of calls nearly a decade before 9/11 terror attacks

April 8, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. secretly tracked billions of calls nearly a decade before 9/11 terror attacks | 07 April 2015 | The U.S. government started keeping secret records of Americans' international telephone calls nearly a decade before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, harvesting billions of calls in a program that provided a blueprint for the far broader National Security Agency surveillance that followed. For more than two decades, the Justice Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed logs of virtually all telephone calls from the USA to as many as 116 countries...current and former officials involved with the operation said. The data collection began in 1992 during the administration of President George H.W. Bush, nine years before his son, President [sic] George W. Bush, authorized the NSA to gather its own logs of Americans' phone calls in 2001. It was approved by top Justice Department officials in four presidential administrations and detailed in occasional briefings to members of Congress but otherwise had little independent oversight, according to officials involved with running it. [Ergo, Bush and his successor Obama have been lying to the public for years about the 'need' for blanket NSA surveillance to avoid another 9/11--when all the surveillance in the world didn't prevent the *first* 9/11 attack aka inside job.]

Corporatist Rahm Emanuel Wins Runoff Election to Secure 2nd Term as Chicago Mayor

April 8, 2015 by legitgov

Corporatist Rahm Emanuel Wins Runoff Election to Secure 2nd Term as Chicago Mayor | 07 April 2015 | Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former White House chief of staff whose cutting personality and centrist policies earned him the nickname "Mayor 1 Percent" among his critics, was re-elected mayor of Chicago on Tuesday, surviving a challenge from Jesus G. Garcia, a county commissioner who was attempting to become the city's first Latino mayor. With more than 90 percent of the vote counted, Mr. Emanuel, 55, had a double-digit lead and Mr. Garcia called Mr. Emanuel to concede, an official with Mr. Garcia's campaign said. For Mr. Emanuel, it was a narrow escape from what could have been an embarrassing loss to Mr. Garcia, a feisty former alderman and community organizer who for months hammered Mr. Emanuel for closing dozens of public schools and claimed the mayor ignored the working class and poor in the nation's third largest city.

U.S. says Iran sanctions face phase-out, Obama knocks Israel demand | 07 April 2015 | The United States made clear on Monday that sanctions on Iran would have to be phased out gradually under a nuclear pact and President Barack Obama poured cold water on an Israeli [insane] demand that a deal be predicated on Tehran recognising Israel. "The notion that we would condition Iran not getting nuclear weapons in a verifiable deal on Iran recognising Israel is really akin to saying that we won't sign a deal unless the nature of the Iranian regime [sic] completely transforms," Obama said in an interview with National Public Radio (NPR).

Chuck Schumer bucks White House on Iran | 06 April 2015 | DemocRATic Sen. Chuck Schumer, one of Capitol Hill's most influential voices in the Iran nuclear debate, is strongly endorsing passage of a law opposed by President Barack Obama that would give Congress an avenue to reject the White House-brokered framework unveiled last week. Democratic leader-in-waiting Schumer had quietly signed on to a bill allowing congressional review of the Iran deal two weeks ago, but made little fanfare of his co-sponsorship.
