Spy court clears path to renewing NSA powers

June 20, 2015 by legitgov

Spy court clears path to renewing NSA powers | 19 June 2015 | The secretive federal court that oversees the nation's spies is laying the groundwork for temporarily reauthorizing the National Security Agency's (NSA) sweeping collection of U.S. phone records. In an order released on Friday, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court said that a brief lapse in some Patriot Act provisions would not bar the court from renewing the NSA's powers. Although the court asserted its ability to renew the controversial NSA program, it has yet to issue an order giving a green light to the spy agency. The court also decided that it doesn't need the advice of a new expert panel, in its first-ever opportunity to use the friend-of-the-court analysis.

Surveillance court moving toward renewal of NSA spying program for 6 months | 19 June 2015 | The secretive court that oversees US government spying requests has indicated that it will temporarily renew the National Security Agency's bulk phone records collection authority despite a new reform law that ended the dragnet. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) -- often seen as a compliant "rubber stamp" for US government spying requests -- released an order on Friday positing that lapsed spying powers vested in the Patriot Act -- which expired without renewal on June 1 -- would not restrict the court from reauthorizing for six months the phone metadata collection program.

Fukushima operator 'knew of need to protect against tsunami but did not act'

Fukushima operator 'knew of need to protect against tsunami but did not act' | 18 June 2015 | The operator of Japan's ruined Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was aware of the need to improve the facility’s defences against tsunami more than two years before the March 2011 disaster but failed to take action, according to an internal company document. The revelation casts doubt on claims by Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) that it had done everything possible to protect the plant, which suffered a triple meltdown after being struck by a towering tsunami. The utility disclosed the document this week during a lawsuit brought by more than 40 Tepco shareholders who are demanding damages totalling 5.5 trillion yen from company executives.

June 19, 2015 by legitgov

TPP fight: Fast-track legislation approved in US House, heads to Senate | 19 June 2015 | The US House of Representatives on Thursday reversed course, approving "fast-track" legislation central to President Barack Obama's trade corporate takeover deal with Pacific Rim nations and sending it back to the Senate. The close vote in the House, which last week rejected a related bill, kept alive Mr Obama's goal of bolstering US ties with Asia subjugating the US governmnet to trans-national corporations through a 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The House voted 218-208 to give Mr Obama the fast-track authority to speed 'trade' deals, including the TPP, to conclusion with reduced interference from Congress.

Rep. DeFazio Calls 'Bullsh-t' on the TPP

June 18, 2015 by legitgov

DeFazio Calls 'Bullshit' on the TPP | 18 June 2015 | Congressman Peter DeFazio has vehemently opposed the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal from early on, telling Eugene Weekly in January 2014 that the deal was "informed and manipulated by corporate interests" and that if the public knew what was in the classified document, they wouldn't like it. While widespread public attention has only really been directed at the trade deal for the past couple months, the TPP has been years in the making. The Electronic Frontier Foundation calls it a "secretive, multinational trade agreement" -- the trade talks were all conducted in secret -- and the pact is between 12 Pacific Rim countries accounting for almost 40 percent of the global economy.

June 18, 2015 by walden9

U.S. top court rules for death row inmate over intellectual disability claim | 18 June 2015 | The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that a federal judge was correct to hold a hearing on whether a convicted cop killer on Louisiana's death row is intellectually disabled and therefore potentially ineligible for the death penalty...The court, in a 5-4 decision, threw out an appeals court ruling that said Kevan Brumfield was not eligible for the special hearing in which the lower court judge found he was intellectually disabled. Brumfield will remain on death row for now, as the appeals court has yet to decide if the judge was correct to find that Brumfield was ineligible for the death penalty.
