NYPD raid on Occupy's Zuccotti Park camp destroyed thousands of books

November 25, 2011 by legitgov

NYPD raid on Occupy's Zuccotti Park camp destroyed thousands of books [Since most NYPD morons don't read, it was likely no big deal to them.] 23 Nov 2011 What started in September as a few piles of books on a tarp in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park, the de facto headquarters of the Occupy Wall Street movement, had grown into a full-fledged outdoor library with 5,000 volumes and an online catalogue by November. On Wednesday, a group of library workers and supporters of The People's Library, as it's known among Occupy protesters, gathered in midtown Manhattan to discuss what had become of the library during the Nov. 15 eviction of protesters from Zuccotti Park ordered by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Lawmakers, Twitter locked in dispute over Taliban tweets

November 25, 2011 by legitgov

Lawmakers, Twitter locked in dispute over Taliban tweets 23 Nov 2011 Some members of Congress are urging the popular website Twitter to stop hosting pro-Taliban tweets that celebrate attacks against US and allied forces in Afghanistan. Twitter executives have told lawmakers that the micro-posts do not violate the website's terms of service because the Taliban is not listed by the State Department as a foreign terrorist organization. That designation would make it illegal to provide "material support or resources" to the militant group. [What about the million$ the CIA forks over to Taliban druglords to keep Afghan opium routes clear?]

Arctic sea ice loss unprecedented in 1,450 years 23 Nov 2011 The recent loss of sea ice in the Arctic is greater than any natural variation in the past 1½ millennia, a Canadian study shows. In September, Germany's University of Bremen reported that sea ice had hit a record low, based on data from a Japanese sensor on NASA's Aqua satellite. The U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center, using a different satellite data set, reported that the sea ice coverage in 2011 was the second-lowest on record, after the record set in 2007.

School lockdown: Facebook post causes scare at Bristol Central

November 24, 2011 by legitgov

School lockdown: Facebook post causes scare at Bristol Central 23 Nov 2011 (CT) Comments posted on Facebook by a student referencing the 1999 Columbine school killings led officials to lock down Bristol Central High School for two hours Wednesday as police searched the building with canines. Superintendent of Schools Philip A. Streifer said the 16-year-old boy, who was not identified by authorities, was brought to the school's main office to be questioned by school officials and police while the lockdown was in place. "We quickly made the decision to go into lockdown," Streifer said. "Everything was cancelled, including the pep rally, and students remained [were trapped] in their classrooms with their teachers." [When there's a potential shooter at a school, WHY go into 'lockdown?' To trap the students so the shooter can kill more of them? That appears to be the goal of the 'lockdown.']

'Banksters are destroying America!': Obama heckled as Occupy protesters drown out President in New Hampshire --President paused as 'Mic check!' echoed through crowd 23 Nov 2011 President Barack Obama was heckled today as he gave a speech in New Hampshire about the state of the U.S. economy. Mr Obama, trailed by Occupy Wall Street protesters, dashed into the state for his speaking event at Central High School in Manchester. There, he stood face-to-face with those calling themselves 'the 99 per cent' fighting economic inequality. But as he began, activists drowned out his remarks, chanting: 'Over 4,000 peaceful protesters have been arrested while "banksters" continue to destroy the American economy.'

Hacker group Anonymous targets pepper-spraying UC Davis cop 22 Nov 2011 The UC Davis police officer filmed casually pepper-spraying passive student protesters is the latest target of the computer hacking collective Anonymous. A new 10-minute video attributed to the "hacktivist" group threatens the officer directly and makes public his personal contact information - including his cell phone number and an alleged home address. "Dear Officer John Pike, we are Anonymous. Your information is now public domain," a computer-generated voice narrating the Anonymous video states. "Expect our full wrath," the voice continues as viral video of the Friday incident plays in the background. "Anonymous seeks to avenge all protesters…We are going to make you squeal like a pig."

Rick Santorum gives green light to racial profiling of Muslims during GOP presidential debate --Spars with Texas Rep. Ron Paul who asks what if terrorists 'look like Timothy McVeigh?' 23 Nov 2011 Rick Santorum is giving the green light to the racial profiling of Muslims at airports. The former Pennsylvania senator [Reichwing whackjob] said the Transportation Security Administration should be allowed to target "the folks who are most likely to be committing these crimes," during Tuesday night's Republican presidential debate about national security. "Obviously, Muslims would be someone you'd look at, absolutely," the devout Catholic added. "The radical Muslims are the people committing these crimes, by and large, as well as younger males... Not exclusively but these are things you profile to find the most likely candidate."

US to spend $101 billion in FY 2011 to fund international soldiers' salaries, military hardware in Afghanistan 23 Nov 2011 Although the United States has spent $444 billion in Afghanistan since it invaded the country in late 2001 after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks [inside job], and plans to spend $101 billion in fiscal 2011, most of that money "does not reach Afghanistan because it primarily funds salaries of international soldiers, purchases of military hardware, and the like," the World Bank said.

Republican Mitt Romney defends ad's quote of 2008 Obama without context, calls it fair game 23 Nov 2011 Republican presidential candidate [sociopath] Mitt Romney is defending a TV ad that quotes President Barack Obama out of context, signaling he's ready for bare-knuckled campaigning despite sharp complaints from Democrats and some neutral observers. Romney said while campaigning in Iowa Wednesday that the ad is fair game. The ad, which began airing in New Hampshire Tuesday uses audio of then-Sen. Obama campaigning in the state in 2008, saying: "If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose." The ad omits any acknowledgement that Obama was quoting the campaign of his opponent, 2008 GOP nominee John McCain. Instead, the ad leaves the impression that it is Obama who does not want to discuss the economy.

DHS denies report of water utility hack 22 Nov 2011 The Department of Homeland Security and FBI today dismissed the conclusions of a report that a cyber intrusion caused a pump at an Illinois water utility to burn out.

In the meantime, the DHS is investigating a claim by a hacker who goes by "pr0f" who claimed to have compromised a Texas water utility last week.

John Pike and another officer clad in riot gear casually spraying an orange cloud at the heads of University of California, Davis, protesters who were sitting peacefully on the ground has sparked national outrage since it began circulating online Friday night. An alleged anti-gay slur by Pike, a retired Marine sergeant, figured in a racial and sexual discrimination lawsuit a former police officer filed against the department, which ended in a $240,000 settlement in 2008. Officer Calvin Chang's 2003 discrimination complaint against the university's police chief and the UC Board of Regents alleged he was systematically marginalized as the result of anti-gay and racist attitudes on the force, and he specifically claimed Pike described him using a profane anti-gay epithet.

Guantanamo authorities reading attorney-client mail, lawyers say 01 Nov 2011 Lawyers representing detainees prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, say authorities at the military base have begun reading privileged attorney-client communication - in a sharp break with past practice. Legal mail is the principal means of communication between detainees charged in military tribunals and their military defense attorneys,who are based in the Washington area. In a letter Tuesday, nine of the attorneys wrote to William K. Lietzau, deputy assistant secretary of defense for rule of law and detainee policy, to object to authorities reading their mail to clients at the detention center. They asked that the commander at Guantanamo Bay be ordered to "cease and desist the seizure, opening, translating, reading and reviewing of attorney-client privileged communications."

License plate readers: Tool for police comes with privacy concerns 19 Nov 2011 Scores of cameras across Washington, DC, capture 1,800 images a minute and download the information into a rapidly expanding archive that can pinpoint people's movements all over town.

Informer's Active Role in Terror Case Is Said to Have Deterred F.B.I.

November 22, 2011 by legitgov

Oops! The false flag begins to unravel at breakneck speed, as usual: Informer's Active Role in Terror Case Is Said to Have Deterred F.B.I. 22 Nov 2011 A confidential informer provided companionship and a staging area so Jose Pimentel could build three pipe bombs while the Intelligence Division of the New York Police Department built its case. But it was the informer's role, and that of his police handlers, that have now been cited as among the reasons the F.B.I., which had its own parallel investigation of Mr. Pimentel, did not pursue the case, which was announced on Sunday night in a news conference at City Hall. Terrorism cases are generally handled by federal authorities. There was concern that the informer might have played too active a role in helping Mr. Pimentel, said several people who were briefed on the case, who all spoke on the condition of anonymity, either because of the tense relations between the Intelligence Division and the F.B.I. or because the case was continuing.

Flu Fascism: Ariz. Hospital Requires Staff to Get Flu Shot --Workers that have no medical exemptions and refuse the vaccine will lose their jobs. 21 Nov 2011 Most hospitals ask their employees to get a flu shot voluntarily -- about 50 percent comply. Not enough for Ironwood Medical Center. Dr. Mike O'Conner wants everyone to get the shot by December 1. It's mandatory. If employees cannot get the shot for medical reasons, they will have to wear a medical mask. Workers that have no medical exemptions and refuse the vaccine will lose their jobs.

Hacker says he breached Texas water plant network

Hacker says he breached Texas water plant network 21 Nov 2011 A hacker says he penetrated the network of a South Houston, Texas, water-treatment plant to expose the inherent vulnerabilities in critical industrial control facilities and prove how easily they can be compromised. Going by the online name "pr0f," the hacker wrote on Pastebin Nov. 18 that he tapped into the software used to manage several of South Houston's water plants. He included links to pictures showing the privileged access he was able to gain to Supervisory Acquisition and Data Control (SCADA) software, used to automate operations on many industrial-control facilities; pr0f did not tamper with the software or any of the machines controlled by it, he said.
