March 24, 2012 by legitgov

As Santorum Fires Gun, Woman Shouts 'Pretend It's Obama' 23 Mar 2012 At a campaign stop at a firing range, while Rick Santorum was firing off some rounds, a woman shouted, "pretend it's Obama." Santorum, who was far from the woman, couldn't hear the comment as he proceeded with his target practice. Neither could his staffers. But the yell - the identity of the yeller is not clear, although the words were clearly audible - was in close proximity to journalists traveling with the candidate.

US: Journalist fired after calling Israeli occupation 'brutal' 23 Mar 2012 A veteran American journalist has been fired after referring to Israel's occupation of Palestinian and Syrian land as "brutal." Sunni Khalid, managing news editor at WYPR-FM in Baltimore, was dropped by the public radio station on Thursday after more than nine years on the job. He had been on probation following criticism of comments he made on Facebook about Israel's continued illegal occupation of Palestine. "I, for one, have had enough of this pandering before the Israeli regime," he wrote. "The war-mongering toward Iran has, once again, distracted the world from Israel's brutal military occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights."

Obama Signs 'Thank You' to Deaf Supporter 21 Mar 2012 President Obama didn't miss a beat last week when he encountered a group of deaf students along a rope line after his speech at Prince George’s Community College in Maryland. "I am proud of you," signed Stephon, a 26-year-old college student, who looked at Obama with amazement. Obama immediately paused and signed back "thank you." Another deaf woman signed, "I love you," drawing a big Obama smile.

March 23, 2012 by legitgov

'Etch A Sketch' stocks soar after Romney gaffe 22 Mar 2012 Shares in a company that makes Etch A Sketch nearly tripled in value on Thursday, a day after the humble toy was thrust into the center of US politics. The Ohio Art Company, which makes the children's iconic drawing device, saw its shares increase as much as 213 percent after a key aide to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made an ill-thought reference to the toy. But the Ohio Art Company tried to make hay out of Romney's woes. In a statement the company said it was "happy to see Etch A Sketch, an American classic toy, is DRAWING attention with political candidates as a cultural icon and important piece of our society. A profound toy, highly recognized and loved by all, is now SHAKING up the national debate."

Outrage over Trayvon Martin shooting spreads 22 Mar 2012 Fury over the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is spreading. Marchers took to the streets in New York City and Miami Wednesday, demanding the arrest of the shooter, neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. And he's not the only one under fire. In Manhattan, hundreds demonstrated, seeking justice, they said, for Martin. The "Million Hoodie March" got its name because Martin was wearing a hoodie on Feb. 28, the night Zimmerman shot him. [Is George Zimmerman a confidential informant for the Sanford Police Department? That would explain why Zimmerman appears to be a protected species. --LRP]

Thousands attend rally for slain Fla. teen 22 Mar 2012 Thousands of Sanford residents and protesters from around the country attended a rally for a black teen fatally shot by a neighborhood watch captain in Florida. The rally was initially planned for a 400-seat church. But Thursday evening's two-hour rally for 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was moved to Fort Mellon Park in downtown Sanford to make room for all the people expected to attend. Civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton told the crowd that he wants to see Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, in court with handcuffs behind his back. [Notice that Obusha is silent on the shooting of Trayvon Martin?

U.S. Resurrects Shuttered Bush Administration 'Total Information Awareness' Data Mining Program

U.S. Resurrects Shuttered Bush Administration 'Total Information Awareness' Data Mining Program --U.S. Relaxes Limits on Use of Data in Terror Analysis 23 Mar 2012 The Obama administration is moving to relax restrictions on how counterterrorism analysts may retrieve, store and search information about Americans gathered by government agencies for purposes other than national security threats. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Thursday signed new guidelines for the National Counterterrorism Center, which was created in 2004 to foster intelligence sharing and serve as a terrorism threat clearinghouse. The guidelines will lengthen to five years - from 180 days - the amount of time the center can retain private information about Americans when there is no suspicion that they are tied to terrorism, intelligence officials said. The guidelines are also expected to result in the center making more copies of entire databases and "data mining them" using complex algorithms to search for patterns that could indicate a threat.

Sarkozy: Jail those who browse terror websites

Sarkozy: Jail those who browse terror websites --'Anyone' who regularly consults terror-advocating sites will be criminally punished 22 Mar 2012 France's president proposed a sweeping new law Thursday that would jail those who visit extremist web sites -- one of several tough new measures floated in the wake of a murderous shooting spree. Nicolas Sarkozy argued that it was time to treat those who browse extremist websites the same way as those who consume child pornography. "Anyone who regularly consults Internet sites which promote terror or hatred or violence will be sentenced to prison," he told a campaign rally in Strasbourg, in eastern France. "What is possible for pedophiles should be possible for trainee terrorists and their supporters, too."

He is accused of walking away from his remote base in southern Afghanistan and killing 16 17 civilians in a nighttime ambush... Sergeant Bales's legal proceedings could last years.

Southern leg of Keystone pipeline a 'priority,' Obama says

March 23, 2012 by legitgov

Mega barf alert: Southern leg of Keystone pipeline a 'priority,' Obama says 22 Mar 2012 Amid criticism he isn't doing enough to beat back rising gas prices, President Obama Thursday said he is calling on his administration "to cut through red tape, break through bureaucratic hurdles," and make the Southern leg of the controversial Keystone pipeline "a priority." Mr. Obama's stop in Cushing was part of a four-state, two-day tour in which the president touted his [corpora-terrorist overlords'] energy policies. Standing next to the giant TransCanada pipes that will make up the Southern leg of the Keystone pipeline, Mr. Obama sought to remind voters that he's not opposed to domestic oil drilling [so Exxon Mobil can sell the oil to China]. [Once again, Obusha surrenders to his GOP overlords and fails to address the cause of skyrocketing oil prices: Wall Street speculation and rampant profiteering by US oil companies.]

Paramilitary-Style Police Detain And Search Individuals From Occupy Miami --Summary of post by James Cox 13 Mar 2012 Today, members of Occupy Miami were leaving to do a march and a rally, when multiple trucks and cars filled with paramilitary SWAT-looking officers, with military weaponry pulled. According to reports, these 'paramilitary-looking' police officers drew their weapons on the occupiers and rounded them up, along with tenants of the apartment complex, and put them on the ground... These officers were in full riot gear and had assault rifles, tactical gear and shotguns. They were also accompanied by FBI agents and the City of Miami police.

2 Fla. officials step aside in teen death probe 22 Mar 2012 The police chief and prosecutor who have been bitterly criticized for not arresting a neighborhood watch volunteer in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager both left the case Thursday, with the chief saying that he is temporarily leaving his job to let passions cool. Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee's decision came less than a day after city commissioners gave him a "no confidence" vote, and after a couple of weeks of protests and uproar on social media websites.

Dozens arrested in Vermont Yankee protest 22 Mar 2012 Scores of protesters were arrested at the corporate headquarters of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant Thursday, the first day of the plant's operation after the expiration of its 40-year license. A heavy police presence and ropes blocked off access to the offices in Brattleboro. The arrests were made calmly and without any confrontation, with obvious signs that protesters and police had worked out the logistics beforehand. A crowd estimated at more than 1,000 gathered in a downtown Brattleboro park before they marched the 3 1/2 miles to the headquarters.

A mother duck and her brood of eight adorable ducklings tried to sneak past guards and occupy the presidential front lawn. ...Two guards on duty took the matter into their own hands and gently picked each one up, passing them through the gate so they could be reunited with their mother.

As Occupy Arrestees Arraigned, Iris Scans Affect Bail 19 Mar 2012 The first of the more than 70 Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested Saturday afternoon and evening were arraigned yesterday in Manhattan Criminal Court. Unlike many of the other defendants with whom they shared cells, the protesters could feel confident that they would soon be released -- Occupy posts bail for those arrested during movement actions. But protesters and their legal advisers were surprised yesterday to learn that the size of their bail was being affected by whether defendants were willing to have the distinctive patterns of their irises photographed and logged into a database.

Mayor's office buys 8,513 more face shields for NATO summit 21 Mar 2012 Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration is buying 8,513 more face shields for Chicago Police officers at a cost of $757,657 - and demanding delivery in time for the May 20-21 NATO summit - to give every officer on the street a shield that fits over a gas mask and prevents them from being blinded by liquids thrown by protesters. The supplemental purchase from Colorado-based Super Seer Corp. brings to $954,118 the amount of money spent to purchase 11,570 face shields twice as thick as the old ones with a larger surface and air-tight seal to keep liquids out. The new contract was piggybacked onto an existing Fairfax County, Va. award with a third-distributor to expedite delivery.

March 22, 2012 by legitgov

Sanford, Fla., Police Chief Steps Down Temporarily 22 Mar 2012 The embattled police chief at the center of a fatal neighborhood watch shooting temporarily stepped down Thursday, saying he had become a distraction to the investigation. Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee has been heavily criticized after his officers decided not to arrest George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot an unarmed black teen to death on Feb. 26. The shooting has sparked several protests, and city commissioners gave the chief a "no confidence" vote on Wednesday night. [Is George Zimmerman a confidential informant? Maybe that's why the Sanford Police is treating him like one of their own. --LRP]

The NSA Is Building the Country's Biggest Spy Center

March 22, 2012 by legitgov

The NSA Is Building the Country's Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say) By James Bamford 15 Mar 2012 Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world's communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013... It is, in some measure, the realization of the "total information awareness" program created during the first term of the Bush administration-an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans' privacy.

Police deploy explosives in French gunman siege 22 Mar 2012 French police fired shots and set off explosives roughly every hour outside an apartment block in southern France on Thursday to try to force out a 24-year-old gunman suspected of killing seven people in the name of al Qaeda [al-CIAduh]. Some 27 hours after 300 police first surrounded the five-storey building in a suburb of the prosperous industrial city of Toulouse, Mohamed Merah, a French citizen of Algerian origin, was refusing to give himself up. Instead Merah boasted to police negotiators that he had brought France to its knees and said his only regret was not having been able to carry out plans for more killings.

Trayvon Martin case: No-confidence vote for Sanford police chief

Trayvon Martin case: No-confidence vote for Sanford police chief 22 Mar 2012 In a tense meeting Wednesday that highlighted growing tensions over the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager, local officials in Sanford, Fla., passed a vote of no confidence in the police chief as protests spread north to New York City, where the slain youth's parents joined a Manhattan march demanding the killer's arrest. The no-confidence measure passed 3 to 2 after more than an hour of debate, and though it was not binding, the outcome and the public groans and applause that punctuated the debate underscored the anger pulsing through the Orlando suburb nearly a month after 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's death on Feb. 26.

The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and the FBI said on Monday that they had opened an investigation into the shooting. A state grand jury was also being convened.

Marine facing dismissal over Obama criticism 21 Mar 2012 The Marine Corps on Wednesday notified a sergeant who has been openly critical of President Barack Obama that he is violating Pentagon policy barring troops from political activities and that he faces dismissal. Camp Pendleton Marine Sgt. Gary Stein started a Facebook page called Armed Forces Tea Party to encourage fellow service members to exercise their free speech rights. He declared a few weeks ago that he would not follow the unlawful orders of the commander in chief. Stein stated that he would not follow orders from the president if those orders included detaining U.S. citizens, disarming them or doing anything else that he believes would violate their constitutional rights.

'We have a duty to prepare for the worst': Peter King warns Iran has 'hundreds' of Hezbollah agents in the U.S. 21 Mar 2012 Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah may have hundreds of operatives based in the United States, and Hezbollah - not al-Qaida [al-CIAduh]- poses the greatest terrorist threat to Americans, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Peter King, said today. Since September 11 2001, America's counter-terror officials have focused on al-Qaida and home-grown radicalised American extremists, said the New York representative at a hearing of his committee. But, now, the terrorist threat to the United States is shifting. [Right, there's a new country to invade for Exxon Mobil; hence, the 'threat' is shifting. --LRP]

Ex-FBI informant on terror traps: 'There is no real hunt. It's fixed' 20 Mar 2012 Craig Monteilh says he did not balk when his FBI handlers gave him the OK to have sex with the Muslim women his undercover operation was targeting. Nor, at the time, did he shy away from recording their pillow talk. "They said, if it would enhance the intelligence, go ahead and have sex. So I did," Monteilh told the Guardian as he described his year as a confidential FBI informant sent on a secret mission to infiltrate southern Californian mosques. It is an astonishing admission that goes that goes to the heart of the intelligence surveillance of Muslim communities in America in the years after 9/11.
