Homeland Security helps Ohio prepare for threats --There's a guide on how to respond to school violence, an awareness poster that schools can print out that advises, 'If you see something, say something,' and a phone number to report suspicious activity. [Report *yourselves* for executing another false flag to explode the US police state.] 25 Dec 2012 Homeland Security in Ohio has teamed up with the state Department of Education to post informational resources for school administrators in the wake of the elementary school massacre in Connecticut. The resources include a quick guide on how to respond when there's an active shooter, such as having an escape route in mind, leaving belongings behind, hiding in a locked area and silencing electronics. Ohio Homeland Security Director Richard Baron says the effort is designed to increase Ohioans' awareness of potential threats and readiness to respond.

Global Flu Pandemic 'Inevitable,' Expert Warns

December 25, 2012 by legitgov

Global Flu Pandemic 'Inevitable,' Expert Warns 25 Dec 2012 A new global flu pandemic within the next couple years is inevitable, one prominent flu vaccine manufacturer says. [Can they get any more *blatant?* See: 'V for Vendetta' sub-plot, if you want to know what happens when a tyrannical government conspires with pharma-terrorists to create a worldwide pandemic.] Joseph Kim, head of Inovio Pharmaceuticals, which is currently working on a "universal" flu vaccine that would protect against spread most strains of the virus, says the world is due for a massive bird flu outbreak that could be much deadlier than the 2009 swine flu pandemic. Last year, Ron Fouchier, a Dutch flu researcher, genetically modified a strain of H5N1 so that it was transmissible between ferrets, which are often used to test human-to-human transmissibility. At the time, Fouchier said he had created "probably one of the most dangerous viruses you can make." [Now, why would he do that?] Paul Keim, a geneticist with the U.S. National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity, echoed that sentiment: "I can't think of another pathogenic organism that is as scary as this one," he said. "I don't think anthrax is scary at all compared to this."

Separately, a police officer in Wisconsin and another in Texas were shot and killed on Monday, according to police and media reports.

Down to the 'fiscal cliff' wire, with no solution in sight

December 24, 2012 by legitgov

Down to the 'fiscal cliff' wire, with no solution in sight 24 Dec 2012 Call it a bigger, bolder version of the deadline-driven congressional stalemates over taxes and spending that have come to define Washington dysfunction of the past two years. The latest edition of political "blinksmanship" pits President Barack Obama and Democrats against Speaker John Boehner and Republicans on how to avoid the [Wall Street-created] 'fiscal cliff' -- automatic tax increases for everyone and deep spending cuts including the military that will be triggered in the new year without an agreement. While the focus now is on a possible agreement in coming days or weeks, anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist told CNN on Monday that the nation should gird for long-range battle.

One of the two dead firefighters is also a town police lieutenant; it wasn't clear whether he returned fire. An off-duty police officer who was driving by has injuries from shrapnel, Pickering said. Two wounded firefighters were in critical condition at a Rochester hospital, authorities said.

Army plans to shift troops to U.S. Africa Command --Aims for quick crisis response creation 23 Dec 2012 U.S. Africa Command, the military's newest regional force, will have more troops available early next year as the Pentagon winds down from two ground wars over the past decade, Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, Army chief of staff, told The Washington Times. As part of Gen. Odierno's Regionally Aligned Forces concept, about 1,200 soldiers will deploy to Africa as early as March in an effort to place troops strategically around the globe to respond quickly to sudden challenges in hot spots such as Libya and to develop ties with the people and officials in host countries. "It's about us moving towards a scalable, tailorable capability that helps them to shape the environment they're working in, doing a variety of tasks from building partner capability to engagement, to multilateral training to bilateral training to actual deployment of forces, if necessary," Gen. Odierno said in an interview.

NRA's LaPierre Rejects Gun Laws Following School Killings 23 Dec 2012 The National Rifle Association continues to oppose any new gun regulations in the wake of the mass shooting of elementary school students in Connecticut, the gun lobby's chief executive officer said. Wayne LaPierre said on NBC's "Meet the Press" today that the right way to improve student safety would be to place armed guards in every U.S. school, focus on prosecuting violent criminals and get mentally ill people off the street. "This town wants to argue about gun control," LaPierre said. "We don't think it works and we're not going to support it."

British Court Rejects Drone Lawsuit

December 23, 2012 by legitgov

British Court Rejects Drone Lawsuit 22 Dec 2012 On Friday, a British court rejected a closely watched civil suit by the son of man killed in a 2011 drone strike in Pakistan that requests a judicial declaration that British intelligence officials may be liable for assisting acts of murder, war crimes, and crimes against humanity if they share targetting intelligence with the US government. The plaintiff, Noor Khan, who was represented by the British human rights group Reprieve, had also asked the court to direct the British Foreign Secretary to issue a policy "identifying the circumstances in which intelligence may lawfully be passed on if it relates to the location of individuals who may be targeted in a drone strike." The British judges hearing the case recognized that they were essentially being asked to pass judgment on the legality of the US drone program (and of Obama Administration drone policies), and they declined the invitation to do so.
