After his initial assault on the dance club, Mateen called 911 and pledged allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, according to federal law enforcement officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the FBI investigation is unfolding. During the call, Mateen made reference to the 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon, officials said.

Orlando Drill Gone Live?

Drill prepares emergency nurses for mass casualties --Students from Joe Blasco Cosmetics make-up artist training center in Orlando practiced their skills of creating life-like wounds, cuts and bruises. | 02 Oct 2015 | During the Emergency Nurses Association's annual meeting on Friday, a mock shooter blew himself up, killing and injuring 100 local volunteer actors. There was blood, screams and moans, wounds and dead people -- all fake -- to create a realistic training environment for more than 40 nurses who had signed up for the exercise. They quickly began tending to "patients," assessing the extent of their injuries. The nurses association had worked with several Orlando-based companies for nearly a year to set up the drill on at the Orange County Convention Center, which by coincidence took place a day after the shooting at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, where 10 people died and seven were wounded.

Purported ISIS warning claims terror cells in place in 15 states | 06 May 2016 | A grim online warning from a self-described American jihadist said Sunday's terror attack in Texas was the work of ISIS and that the terrorist group has scores of "trained soldiers" positioned in 15 states, awaiting orders to carry out more operations.

"Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, we are increasing in number," read the warning. "Of the 15 states, 5 we will name…Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan."

Action alert: Lobby Obama and Congress for full disclosure of 28 pages

June 12, 2016 by legitgov

Action alert: Lobby Obama and Congress for full disclosure of 28 pages | 23 April 2016 | Just after the April 10th 60 Minutes news segment on the 28 pages, the White House notified Bob Graham that "declassification is underway." However, there has been ambiguity whether intelligence officials have made the decision to declassify and if so, to what extent. Although the 28 pages have supposedly been under review since the summer of 2014, currently James Clapper, Nation Director of Intelligence, is going through the process of vetting them and will render his decision by mid-June...We need thousands of people to call (1) the White House switchboard, (2) the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, and (3) the office of the National Director of Intelligence. We must send the message that We the People expect full disclosure of the 28 pages, that we know the chapter has been under review since 2014, and further stalling and obfuscating will not be tolerated.

Calls From Red Cross to Donate Blood for Went Out Before Orlando Shooting

June 12, 2016 by legitgov

Calls From Red Cross to Donate Blood for Went Out Before Orlando Shooting By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org | 12 June 2016 | CLG reader 'Tom of Oregon,' a retired reporter, noted that the American Red Cross was soliciting donations for blood on Friday:

I got a call on Friday night from Red Cross. The automated system said my blood type was in short supply and I should contact my local Red Cross and set up a donation time. Now, I've never gotten a call like this before and was suspicious that a major terrorist incident was being planned. In any case, it would be interesting to learn if this was not the case, if it's just a marketing trick or Obamacare is making disclosure of confidential info to NGOs and third parties (exempt from HIPAA).

Tom supplied additional details, regarding the call:

I do not live in Orlando. The call was from an automated calling system identifying itself as "The Red Cross." The caller ID was (800) 733-2767, the date was June 10th, the time was 7:48 PDT. The location does not really matter as far as blood goes. If there's an emergency, they ship it. If they ship it, they need to replenish the stocks.

Bernie Sanders Refuses to Concede Nomination to Hillary Clinton

June 12, 2016 by legitgov

Bernie Sanders Refuses to Concede Nomination to Hillary Clinton | 12 June 2016 | Despite growing calls from Democrats the Democratic establishment that he drop out of the race, Senator Bernie Sanders said on Sunday that he will continue to fight for the Democratic presidential nomination, refusing to concede it to Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton earned enough delegates to clinch the nomination last week, but Mr. Sanders has declined to end his campaign or acknowledge her achievement as the first female presidential nominee of a major party. He has contended that he could persuade enough superdelegates, the party leaders who have overwhelmingly backed Mrs. Clinton, to switch their support to him by arguing that he would be the stronger candidate against Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina says authorities have not determined an exact number of people killed, but that "approximately 20" have died. Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent in Charge Danny Banks says the mass shooting is being investigated as an act of terrorism. He says authorities are looking into whether the early Sunday incident was an act of domestic or international terror, and if the shooter was a lone wolf. Mina says the shooter was armed with an assault-type rifle, a handgun and some type of suspicious device. Police had said previously on Twitter that there was a "controlled explosion" at the scene of the shooting at Pulse Orlando, a popular gay dance club. Mina says that noise was caused by a device intended to distract the shooter.

Protect the Last of Madagascar's Disappearing Lemurs

June 12, 2016 by legitgov

Petition: Protect the Last of Madagascar's Disappearing Lemurs | 12 June 2016 | 107 lemur species call the island of Madagascar home -- most of them are native to the island. But a leading primatologist, Jonah Ratsimbazafy, warns on CNN that 90% of Madagascar's lemurs "are on the verge of extinction," including 24 critically endangered lemur species because of climate change and human activities, including: slash-and-burn agriculture, illegal logging, mining, bamboo cutting and hunting. Madagascar's high rates of endemic plants and animals mean that even one lost hectare takes a dramatic toll on the environment -- Madagascar is currently losing 30,000 hectares of rainforest per year. At this unsustainable rate, the island's rainforest -- and lemur habitat -- "will cease to exist within the next 25 years." [Please take a moment to sign this petition!]

10th Circuit: Kansas can't block voters from casting ballots | 10 June 2016 | Kansas cannot prevent thousands of eligible voters from casting ballots in the November federal election because they didn't prove they were U.S. citizens when registering to vote at motor vehicle offices, a federal appeals court ruled Friday.

The state has said as many as 50,000 people could be affected.

The EFF claims that the TPP will benefit big businesses over consumers and takes issue with the lack of transparency around the agreement's creation and provisions...Despite this, President Obama has backed the agreement, and it also has the support of Google's contemporaries [the other slave labor dirt-bags,] Microsoft and Apple.

Court says people do not have right to carry concealed weapons in California | 09 June 2016 | In a victory for gun control advocates, a federal appeals court said Thursday people do not have a right to carry concealed weapons in public under the 2nd Amendment.

The decision overturned a 2014 ruling by a smaller 9th Circuit panel and came in a lawsuit over the denial of concealed weapons permits by a sheriff in San Diego County.
