Israeli air force shoots down drone aircraft

October 6, 2012 by legitgov

Israeli air force shoots down drone aircraft 06 Oct 2012 The Israeli air force shot down a drone after it crossed into southern Israel on Saturday, the military said, but it remained unclear where the aircraft had come from. The drone was first spotted above the Mediterranean in the area of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip to the west of Israel, said military spokeswoman Avital Leibovich. It was kept under surveillance and followed by Israeli air force jets before it was shot down above a forest in an unpopulated area near the border with the occupied West Bank.

White House Widening Covert War in North Africa

October 6, 2012 by legitgov

White House Widening Covert War in North Africa 03 Oct 2012 Small teams of special operations forces arrived at American embassies throughout North Africa in the months before militants launched the fiery attack that killed the U.S. ambassador in Libya. The soldiers' mission: Set up a network that could quickly strike a terrorist target or rescue a hostage. But the teams had yet to do much counterterrorism work in Libya, though the White House signed off a year ago on the plan to build the new military task force in the region and the advance teams had been there for six months, according to three U.S. counterterror officials and a former intelligence official.

FBI Investigators In and Out of Libya in 12 Hours 05 Oct 2012 A team of FBI agents arrived in Benghazi, Libya, to investigate the assault against the U.S. Consulate and left after about 12 hours on the ground as the hunt for those possibly connected to the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans narrowed to one or two people in an extremist group, [aka US contractors] U.S. officials said Thursday. Agents arrived in Benghazi before dawn on Thursday and departed after sunset, after weeks of waiting for access to the crime scene to investigate the Sept. 11 attack.

Homeland Security finishing acquisition of millions of rounds of high-powered ammo

October 6, 2012 by legitgov

Homeland Security finishing acquisition of millions of rounds of high-powered ammo 13 Aug 2012 The Department of Homeland Security is rushing to finish the acquisition of 750 million rounds of high-power ammunition [enough to take care of the 47%]. In one week, the DHS should start expecting an arsenal that will make some armies jealous. The DHS has updated a solicitation originally posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website earlier this year, now answering questions from prospective contractors about an inquiry the agency published back in April. All responses to the DHS request for hundreds of millions of rounds of high-power ammunition must still be sent in by August 20, but now the federal agency designated to thwart terrorism on the home front has answered some questions about what exactly they are looking for in terms of being able to blow stuff up.

FEMA Ordered to Prepare For 'Mass Fatality Planning' in Bill Introduced Into Congress

October 6, 2012 by legitgov

Remember Homeland Security's recent big ammo shopping spree? Well. FEMA Ordered to Prepare For 'Mass Fatality Planning' in Bill Introduced Into Congress 06 Oct 2012 H.R. 6566: To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide guidance and coordination for mass fatality planning, and for other purposes. This Act may be cited as the "Mass Fatality Planning and Religious Considerations Act". Section 504 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. 314) is amended by adding at the end the following new subsection: "(c) PREPAREDNESS FOR MASS FATALITIES. In carrying out this section, the Administrator shall provide guidance to and coordinate with appropriate individuals, including representatives from different communities, private sector businesses, non-profit organizations, and religious organizations, to prepare for and respond to a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster [nuclear melt-downs, CIA false flags, and pharma-terrorists' pandemics] that results in mass fatalities". Accordig to GovTrack.us, 'This bill was assigned to a congressional committee on September 28, 2012, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.' [Why are WE always the guinea pigs for the US government's chemtrail spraying, biological weapons testing, false flags, pandemics, and scopolamine-fuelled shooting sprees? Why not bank on and plan for your OWN demise -- for once -- instead of OURS? --LRP]

General: 'My Career Was Done' When I Criticized Flawed Warplane

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

General: 'My Career Was Done' When I Criticized Flawed Warplane 04 Oct 2012 Don Harvel thought he was cruising to a well-deserved retirement after 35 years flying cargo planes for the U.S. Air Force. Then in the spring of 2010 he was tapped to investigate the fatal crash of a high-tech Air Force tiltrotor aircraft - and everything changed. What Harvel discovered about the controversial hybrid aircraft drew him into a battle of wills with his superiors at Air Force Special Operations Command. Harvel, then a brigadier general, uncovered evidence of mechanical problems - and resulting safety woes - in the V-22 Osprey, which takes off like a helicopter and flies like an airplane. These are issues the Pentagon has been eager to downplay. So when Harvel refused to alter his findings to match the Defense Department's expectations, he knew that was the final chapter of his decades-long military service... "I turned [my report] in and I knew that my career was done," Harvel says.

US wants to see Syria, Turkey going to war: Iran cmdr. 05 Oct 2012 A senior Iranian military commander says Syria and Turkey should realize that the United States wants a war between the two Muslim countries. "This war is what the US wants and the officials of the two countries [Syria and Turkey] should move towards non-interference in each other's affairs in order to see peace on the borders," Iran's Armed Forces Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said on Friday.

Jobless Rate Falls to 7.8%, Lowest Since January 2009

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

Jobless Rate Falls to 7.8%, Lowest Since January 2009 06 Oct 2012 The nation's unemployment rate dropped sharply to 7.8 percent in September, its lowest level since the month President Obama took office, the Labor Department said Friday. While employers added only a modest 114,000 jobs last month, the jobless rate declined from 8.1 percent in August. The unemployment rate fell because more people were working, not because discouraged job seekers stopped looking, the numbers showed. Adding to the positive news, job gains were revised upward by 40,000 for July (to 181,000) and by 46,000 for August (to 142,000).

Exit Polls Canceled in 19 States

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

Exit Polls Canceled in 19 States [to facilitate the coup] 04 Oct 2012 Breaking from two decades of tradition, this year's election exit poll is set to include surveys of voters in 31 states, not all 50 as it has for the past five presidential elections, according to multiple people involved in the planning. The decision by the National Election Pool - a joint venture of the major television networks and The Associated Press - is sure to cause some pain to election watchers across the country. The lack of data may hamper election night analyses in some states, and it will almost certainly limit post-election research for years to come. The states that will be excluded from coverage are Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Campaign Gains a New Intensity in Debate's Wake

October 5, 2012 by legitgov

Campaign Gains a New Intensity in Debate's Wake 05 Oct 2012 President Obama and Mitt Romney confronted what one feared and the other hoped was an altered campaign on Thursday, pounding new urgency into what was shaping up as a wide-open final sprint to Election Day. A day after the first debate, in which Mr. Obama was almost universally judged to have underperformed and Mr. Romney to have seized his opportunity, the president resolved to do what he did not do the night before: He went straight at the challenger with a forceful argument that Mr. Romney's words of moderation masked extreme conservative policies. "The man onstage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year," the president said at a rally, looking more energetic than he was at his lectern Wednesday night.

Feds indict self-proclaimed Anonymous spokesman Barrett Brown on retaliation, conspiracy charges

Feds indict self-proclaimed Anonymous spokesman Barrett Brown on retaliation, conspiracy charges 04 Oct 2012 Barrett Brown, the self-proclaimed spokesman for the affiliation of worldwide hackers known as Anonymous, has been indicted on three federal charges: making an online threat, retaliating against a federal officer and conspiring to release the personal information of a U.S. government employee. Authorities raided Brown's apartment and arrested him last month while he was chatting online with Anonymous folks. The bulk of the evidence against Brown in the indictment consists of threats he allegedly tweeted and YouTubed in the weeks leading up to his arrest -- most of them aimed at his longtime FBI foil, Agent Robert Smith.

Medication tied to rare meningitis outbreak reached 23 states 04 Oct 2012 A steroid medication linked to the death of at least five people from rare fungal meningitis may have been administered to patients in 23 states, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control said on Thursday, raising fears the rare outbreak could spread. In a briefing for reporters, the CDC said five people had died so far and 35 had taken ill from fungal meningitis in six states. The outbreak was first reported in Tennessee, where three people have died and 25 of the cases have been reported.

Guantanamo mold, rats could force Sept. 11 case delay

Guantanamo mold, rats could force Sept. 11 case delay [RATS forced the September 11 case in the first place, but those rats scurried and escaped trial.] 04 Oct 2012 Concerns about mold and rats at the U.S. base in Guantanamo in Cuba could prompt another delay in the Sept. 11 case. Defense lawyers have long complained their offices are filled with moldy, dusty air and infested with rats. Several have gotten sick. Now, health officials at the base have declared the offices unfit for working and have ordered repairs. A lawyer for accused terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed says the repairs may not be finished in time for the next round of pretrial hearings, set to start Oct. 15.

Superweeds linked to rising herbicide use in GM crops

October 4, 2012 by legitgov

Superweeds linked to rising herbicide use in GM crops 04 Oct 2012 A study published this week by Washington State University research professor Charles Benbrook finds that the use of herbicides in the production of three genetically modified herbicide-tolerant crops - cotton, soybeans and corn - has actually increased. This counterintuitive finding is based on an exhaustive analysis of publicly available data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agriculture Statistics Service. Benbrook's analysis is the first peer-reviewed, published estimate of the impacts of genetically engineered (GE) herbicide-resistant (HT) crops on pesticide use.

First presidential debate: Obama hit with left hook on TV, online

October 4, 2012 by legitgov

First presidential debate: Obama hit with left hook on TV, online 03 Oct 2012 Left-leaning commentators hit President Barack Obama hard on TV and the Internet after the first presidential debate in Denver on Wednesday night, saying GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney handily defeated his more experienced opponent. MSNBC hosts were "stunned" by Obama's performance, suggesting the president was rusty for not having debated in four years. "I don't think he explained himself very well on the economy. I think he was off his game. I was absolutely stunned tonight," Ed Schultz said. "Where was Obama tonight?" Chris Matthews asked. [Did Barack Obama cut a deal -- make history, serve one term, clear the plate and the 2008 ill-tasting GOP palette, pardon the Bush era war criminals, then turn the reigns of power back over to a (more obvious) Wall Street guy? Note that key elements of Obamacare don't take effect until 2014. Yes, 'health care reform' was born with a 'suicide gene' so that Obama's successor could overturn it 'on Day One.' And what about, in the words of Howard Fineman, the 'criminally negligent' moderator [sic], Jim Lehrer? Lehrer could not bring his useless self to utter a single question regarding Mitt Romney's '47 Percent' comments or that fact that GOP leaders met on Inauguration Day 2009 to 'submarine' Obama's presidency and plot a path to ensure that Barack Obama would be a 'one-term president.' --LRP]

Urgent: Stop the Polar Bear Rug Trade

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

Urgent: Stop the Polar Bear Rug Trade 02 Oct 2012 Adding to polar bears' already bleak prospects from climate change, risky offshore drilling and toxic contamination, the international trade in endangered species parts is booming. The price for polar bear fur reached a record high last year as the bears' numbers shrink along with their sea-ice habitat. The Obama government is considering pushing for greater protections under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species... This year the Russian Federation has promised to support a trade ban on polar bear parts if the United States introduces the resolution. The deadline for introducing the resolution is this week. Please contact the White House now and ask President Barack Obama's government to take a stand for polar bears and champion these urgently needed trade restrictions.

Activists push for international ban on legal trade in polar bear items --US and Russian groups unite to lobby governments after concerns over rise in poaching and melting Arctic ice 01 Oct 2012 Environmental activists in the United States and Russia have come together to push for unprecedented protection for the polar bear, hoping to stave off the decline of its already dwindling population. With Arctic Sea ice at record low because of climate change, polar bears have been deprived of a key habitat and feeding ground. Legal trade in polar bears, mainly in the form of trophy skins and furs, remains legal under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites), leading to the death of hundreds more each year.

Federal appeals court extends stay on order blocking indefinite detention law

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

Federal appeals court extends stay on order blocking indefinite detention law 03 Oct 2012 The US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Tuesday extended a stay on a lower court order that barred enforcement of a law allowing the indefinite detention of suspected terrorists. The Second Circuit's order allows certain provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), specifically Section 1021(b)(2), to remain in force pending appeal. This provision affirms the authority of the president under the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) to detain indefinitely any "person who was a part of or substantially supported al Qaeda [al-CIAduh], the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces."

Presidential debate seen as potential turning point for Romney --Candidates spend day preparing, touring debate site 03 Oct 2012 U.S. Republican candidate Mitt Romney gets his first chance on Wednesday evening to go head-to-head in a debate against President Barack Obama, and potentially turn the tide of a campaign that has seen him trailing for weeks. The 90-minute encounter could reach 60 million people on television, a far bigger audience than watched either candidate speak at the Democratic and Republican conventions.

Detroit workers striking in defiance of federal court order: 'We're not going anywhere'

Detroit workers striking in defiance of federal court order: 'We're not going anywhere' 01 Oct 2012 Striking water department workers continued to picket Monday afternoon despite being ordered back to work by a federal judge. "The strike will continue," said AFSCME Local 207 Secretary Treasurer Michael Mulholland in a statement. "We are fighting to stop the contracting out of over 80% of our jobs... The workers have been demanding better staffing, training and equipment to improve water quality for years, and management has always lent a deaf ear. Now, with the disingenuous claim of 'environmental protection' they are simply union busting and privatizing."

Court extends stop on order blocking indefinite detention law

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

Court extends stop on order blocking indefinite detention law --All three judges on the motions panel were appointed to the appeals court by President Barack Obama. 02 Oct 2012 A federal appeals court has extended a temporary stay of a district court judge's order barring the government from using an indefinite detention provision in a defense bill passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama late last year. A three-judge [Denny Chin, Raymond Lohier and Christopher Droney] motions panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit issued the order Tuesday afternoon, indicating they saw flaws with the scope and rationale for U.S. District Court Judge Katherine Forrest's original order blocking the disputed provision of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011.

Todd Akin In 2008: Doctors Give Abortions to Women Who Aren't Pregnant

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

Todd Akin In 2008: Doctors Give Abortions to Women Who Aren't Pregnant 02 Oct 2012 Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin sparked national outrage in August when he justified his opposition to abortion by claiming that victims of "legitimate rape" rarely get pregnant because "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." However, the Republican congressman's now-infamous remarks are not the first time he's made a scientifically questionable statement on abortion. As Slate reported Tuesday, Akin gave a speech on the House floor in 2008 denouncing abortion providers as "terrorists," claiming that they sometimes perform abortions on women who "are not actually pregnant." [Do they perform brain surgery on Representatives whose skulls are actually empty? --LRP]

DHS Counterterror Centers Produce 'a Bunch of Crap,' Senate Finds

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

DHS Counterterror Centers Produce 'a Bunch of Crap,' Senate Finds 02 Oct 2012 They're supposed to be "one of the centerpieces of our counterterrorism strategy," according to Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. In practice, not so much. The Senate's bipartisan Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations found no evidence that DHS's 70-plus fusion centers - places where state, local and federal law enforcement analyze and share information - uncovered a single terrorist threat between April 1, 2009 and April 30, 2010... Unnamed DHS officials told the panel the fusion centers produce "predominantly useless information" and "a bunch of crap." An internal 2010 assessment, which DHS did not share with Congress, found that a third of all fusion centers don't have defined procedures for sharing intelligence - "one of the prime reasons for their existence." At least four fusion centers identified by DHS "do not exist," the Senate found.

DHS Issued False 'Water Pump Hack' Report; Called It a 'Success'

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

DHS Issued False 'Water Pump Hack' Report; Called It a 'Success' 02 Oct 2012 When an Illinois fusion center distributed a report last year stating that hackers from Russia had broken into a water district's SCADA system and sabotaged a water pump, the Department of Homeland Security stepped in publicly to denounce the report as false, blaming the regional fusion center for spreading unsubstantiated claims and sowing panic in the industrial control system community. But while DHS was busy pointing a finger at the fusion center, its own Office of Intelligence and Analysis had been irresponsibly spreading the same false information privately in a report to Congress and the intelligence community, according to a Senate subcommittee investigation released late Tuesday. The DHS report was issued five days after the fusion center report was issued.

Unusual Dallas Earthquakes Linked to Fracking, Expert Says

October 3, 2012 by legitgov

Unusual Dallas Earthquakes Linked to Fracking, Expert Says 03 Oct 2012 Three unusual earthquakes that shook a suburb west of Dallas over the weekend appear to be connected to the past disposal of wastewater from local hydraulic fracturing operations, a geophysicist who has studied earthquakes in the region says... Before a series of small quakes on Halloween 2008, the Dallas area had never recorded a magnitude-3 earthquake, said Cliff Frohlich, associate director and senior research scientist at the University of Texas at Austin's Institute for Geophysics... Frohlich said he doesn't think it's a coincidence that an intensification in seismic activity in the Dallas area came the year after a pocket of ground just south of (and thousands of feet below) the DFW airport began to be inundated with wastewater from hydraulic fracturing.
