House cybersecurity bill would establish federal overseer

December 17, 2011 by legitgov

House cybersecurity bill would establish federal overseer 16 Dec 2011 Members of the House Homeland Security Committee introduced a cybersecurity bill on Thursday that would establish a quasi-governmental entity to oversee information-sharing with the private sector. [Oh. I thought the hypocritical sociopaths aka GOP detested 'czars?' I guess if it's *their* czars, they're not!] Like the other [fascist] cybersecurity bills offered by the House GOP, the Promoting and Enhancing Cybersecurity and Information Sharing Effectiveness (PrECISE Act) encourages private firms to share information on cyber threats. By authorizing DHS to oversee civilian cybersecurity, the legislation aligns with proposals from both the Senate and the White House, but it is unclear how much authority DHS would have to enforce its security standards.

Ron Paul: Strike against Iran would risk a repeat of 'useless' Iraq war

December 16, 2011 by legitgov

Ron Paul: Strike against Iran would risk a repeat of 'useless' Iraq war 15 Dec 2011 Libertarian-minded Ron Paul separated himself from the pack of Republican candidates at tonight's debate by urging restraint in response to a possible Iranian nuclear threat, saying the U.S. can ill afford a repeat of its war in on Iraq. Paul said there was "no U.N. evidence" that Iran is developing a nuclear weapons program, calling claims to the contrary "war propaganda." "To me the greatest danger is that we will have a president that will overreact, and we will soon bomb Iran," he said. "We ought to really sit back and think, not jump the gun and believe that we are going to be attacked. That's how we got into that useless war in Iraq and lost so much." [Exactly.]

Russian spacecraft filled with toxic fuel and radioactive material set to crash-land on Earth 16 Dec 2011 A Russian spacecraft with toxic fuel and radioactive material on board is set to crash-land on Earth. Russian space agency Roscosmos said that between 20 and 30 fragments of the probe with a total weight of up to 200 kilos (440lbs) will survive the fiery plunge and shower the Earth's surface. Phobos-Ground weighs 14.6 tons, which includes 12 tons of highly toxic fuel. Experts had warned that if the fuel has frozen, some could survive entry into Earth and pose a serious threat if it falls over populated areas.

Hong Kong school closed in bird flu scare 16 Dec 2011 A Hong Kong school was closed on Friday after a dead bird found in the southern Chinese city was tested positive for the deadly H5 strain of the bird flu virus, health officials said. The closure came after the school clerk, a 48-year-old woman, picked up a sick black-headed gull at the school on Tuesday, which died the next day and was tested positive for the H5 strain, a health department spokesman told AFP.

'Iran downing drone, body blow to US'

December 16, 2011 by legitgov

'Iran downing drone, body blow to US' 16 Dec 2011 The downing of a stealth US spy drone by Iran's Army has resoundingly dented the American intelligence machine, besides humiliating the US officials pursuing anti-Iran plans, a political expert tells Press TV. "If truth be told, the downing of the spy drone has surely delivered a heavy blow to the intelligence apparatus of the CIA and rustled many feathers in Washington," Ismail Salami, an Iranian author and Middle East expert, wrote in an opinion piece published on Press TV on Thursday. The Iranian "electronic ambush" ensnared the aircraft -- while it was in violation of Iran's airspace -- "to the humiliation of US officials," he pointed out.

US-led soldier killed in Afghanistan 15 Dec 2011 A militant attack in southern Afghanistan has killed a soldier with the US-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), the military alliance says. In a statement released on Thursday, the ISAF said that the soldier was killed in a militant attack in the war-ravaged country on Wednesday, but gave no details about the nationality of the soldier, Xinhua reported.

Military given go-ahead to detain US terrorist suspects without trial

December 16, 2011 by legitgov

Military given go-ahead to detain US terrorist suspects without trial 14 Dec 2011 Barack Obama has abandoned a commitment to veto a new security law that allows the military to indefinitely detain without trial American terrorism suspects arrested on US soil who could then be shipped to Guantánamo Bay. Human rights groups accused the president of deserting his principles and disregarding the long-established principle that the military is not used in domestic policing. The law, contained in the defence authorisation bill that funds the US military, effectively extends the battlefield in the "war on terror" to the US and applies the established principle that combatants in any war are subject to military detention.

IMF chief warns over 1930s-style threats

December 16, 2011 by legitgov

IMF chief warns over 1930s-style threats 15 Dec 2011 The managing director of the International Monetary Fund has warned that the global economy faces the prospect of "economic retraction, rising protectionism, isolation and... what happened in the 30s [Depression]", as European tensions again flared over suggestions in Paris that the UK’s credit rating should be downgraded before France's. "There is no economy in the world, whether low-income countries, emerging markets, middle-income countries or super-advanced economies that will be immune to the crisis that we see not only unfolding but escalating," Christine Lagarde said in a speech at the US state department in Washington.

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

Manning to make first WikiLeaks court appearance Friday 15 Dec 2011 More than a year and a half after his arrest, the Army private accused of being the source of the massive WikiLeaks disclosure of classified military and diplomatic material is to make his first court appearance Friday. Pfc. Bradley Manning, who has been held at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, will face an Article 32 hearing at Fort Meade in Maryland, outside Washington. It's also the home of the National Security Agency. The hearing, which is expected to last up to a week, is to determine whether there's enough evidence for a court-martial.

Indefinite Military Detention Measure Passes On Bill of Rights Day

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

Indefinite Military Detention Measure Passes On Bill of Rights Day 15 Dec 2011 The Senate passed a defense bill Thursday that authorizes indefinite detentions of American terrorism suspects, coincidentally acting on the controversial measure on the 220th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights. The bill, the National Defense Authorization Act, passed 86 to 13 and is expected to be signed quickly by President Obama, who withdrew a veto threat against the bill Wednesday. Six Democrats, six Republicans and one independent opposed the bill. Though the legislation passed overwhelmingly, several senators argued that it was threatening fundamental provisions of the Bill of Rights, which is celebrated every Dec. 15.

Census data: Half of U.S. poor or low income

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

Census data: Half of U.S. poor or low income 15 Dec 2011 Squeezed by rising living costs, a record number of Americans - nearly 1 in 2 - have fallen into poverty or are scraping by on earnings that classify them as low income. The latest census data depict a middle class that's shrinking as unemployment stays high and the government's safety net frays [thanks to the GOP, Obusha, and sycophantic DemocRATs]. The new numbers follow years of stagnating wages for the middle class that have hurt millions of workers and families.

Anonymous targets indefinite detention bill

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

Anonymous targets indefinite detention bill 15 Dec 2011 Cyber activists linked to the Anonymous collective are mobilizing to oppose legislation that would allow the military to indefinitely detain US citizens suspected of terrorist activity on American soil. Known as NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) FY 2012, the legislation also permits the Pentagon to transfer suspected terrorists - even though they are US citizens - to Guantánamo Bay. In response to the pending legislation, Anonymous has doxed Robert J. Portman, a Republican senator from the state of Ohio who supports the controversial Act. "He made himself a target as an advocate of the NDAA," the group wrote in an online communiqué."We are truly disturbed by the ludicrous $272,853 he received from special interest groups supporting the NDAA bill that authorizes the indefinite detention of [American] citizens on US soil. Robert J. Portman, we plan to make an example of you." [Anonymous, we are with you.]

Indefinite detention bill passes in Senate

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

Indefinite detention bill passes in Senate 16 Dec 2011 (rt.com) Exactly 220 years to the date after the Bill of Rights was ratified, the US Senate today voted 86 to 13 in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, allowing the indefinite detention and torture of Americans. After a back-and-forth in recent days between both the Senate and House yielded intense criticism from Americans attempting to hold onto their Constitutional rights, NDAA FY2012 is now on its way to the White House, where yesterday the Obama administration revealed that the president would not veto the legislation, cancelling a warning he offered less than a month earlier.

Man-made super-flu could kill half humanity

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

Man-made super-flu could kill half humanity 03 Dec 2011 A virus with the potential to kill up to half the world's population has been made in a lab. Now academics and bioterrorism experts are arguing over whether to publish the recipe, and whether the research should have been done in the first place. The virus is an H5N1 bird flu strain which was genetically altered to become much more contagious. It was created by Ron Fouchier of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, who first presented his work to the public at an influenza conference in Malta in September.

CLG Needs Your Help 15 Dec 2011

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

CLG Needs Your Help 15 Dec 2011 CLG needs your help so that we can continue our news service. In the spirit of Mitt Romney, I will bet ten thousand dollars that Barack Obama will sign a bill that allows indefinite detention without trial of US citizens, DemocRATs will surrender in a(nother) pseudo-fight with their GOP/Wall Street overlords and remove the pathetic, paltry tax on millionaires, Fukushima will continue to spew radiation while the corporate-run media ignores same, Blackwater mercenaries will return to Iraq with a vengeance, and US pharma-terrorists will be busy little bees getting the next pandemic party started.

Of course, I'm just kidding about the bet! <g> On a serious note, I wish to thank EVERY contributor who has helped us this year. I got deluged and became dreadfully behind in thanking individuals, but I hope to 'catch up' in that regard over the holidays. Speaking of which: Happy holidays to all from CLG! And buckle up, because with these LUNATICS running for president - and with the false flags simmering on the stove - 2012 is gong to be a wild ride!

AP: Regulators up scrutiny of Fort Calhoun nuclear plant after finding more problems

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

AP: Regulators up scrutiny of Fort Calhoun nuclear plant after finding more problems 14 Dec 2011 Several new problems have been found at a Nebraska power plant that suffered flood damage earlier this year, federal regulators said Tuesday, so inspectors will be watching the plant north of Omaha even more closely as repairs from flooding are made. The tougher oversight for the Omaha Public Power District plant in Fort Calhoun will likely further delay its restart from early next year until sometime in the spring as it makes repairs from the summer flooding. Fort Calhoun has been shut down since April, when it was being refueled.

Pakistan says U.S. drones in its air space will be shot down

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

Pakistan says U.S. drones in its air space will be shot down [It's about time.] 10 Dec 2011 Pakistan will shoot down any U.S. drone that intrudes its air space per new directives, a senior Pakistani official told NBC News on Saturday. According to the new Pakistani defense policy, "Any object entering into our air space, including U.S. drones, will be treated as hostile and be shot down," a senior Pakistani military official told NBC News. The policy change comes just weeks after a deadly NATO attack on Pakistani military checkpoints 'accidentally' killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, prompting Pakistani officials to order all U.S. personnel out of a remote airfield in Pakistan.

White House OKs indefinite military detention of terrorism suspects

December 15, 2011 by legitgov

White House OKs indefinite military detention of terrorism suspects 14 Dec 2011 The White House is signing off on a controversial new law that would authorize the U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain alleged al Qaeda members or other terrorist operatives captured on American soil. As the bill neared final passage in the House of Representatives and the Senate on Wednesday, the Obama regime announced it would support passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which contains slightly watered-down provisions giving the military a front line role in domestic terrorism cases. "By signing this defense spending bill, President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in U.S. law," said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch.

Air Force investigating cause of drone crash in Seychelles 13 Dec 2011 The U.S. military is investigating what caused a U.S. military drone [remotely piloted MQ-9 Reaper] to crash near a civilian airport runway in the Republic of Seychelles, a U.S. Air Forces in Europe spokesman said Wednesday. The United States has possession of the aircraft debris, Maj. Rickardo Bodden, a USAFE spokesman, said in an email. The U.S. military and Civil Aviation Authority of the Seychelles coordinated the removal of the debris following Tuesday's crash at the Seychelles International Airport on the island of Mahe, according to Bodden.

White House Lifts Veto Threat of Defense Bill

December 14, 2011 by legitgov

White House Lifts Veto Threat of Defense Bill --Bill allows indefinite detention without trial of US citizens 14 Dec 2011 The White House lifted a veto threat of the defense authorization bill, staving off a potential showdown with Congress on the issue of detainees. The House is scheduled to vote on the measure today, and the Senate is expected to act by the end of the week. Late this afternoon, House Republicans were meeting to round up the last votes needed to approve the bill. Human-rights organizations remain opposed to the measure because they charge it would allow for the indefinite detention of terrorism suspects, including Americans, without a trial.

Chains we can believe in: Bagram jail detainee unlawfully held, court rules --Appeal court tells British ministers to ask US to end Yunus Rahmatullah's seven-year ordeal at notorious Afghan prison 14 Dec 2011 The government has been ordered by three senior judges to secure the release of a Pakistani man captured by British special forces and held by the US in Afghanistan's notorious Bagram jail without trial for more than seven years. The judges ruled that Yunus Rahmatullah, 29, who was handed over by the SAS to American forces in Iraq in 2004 and then taken to Bagram, is being unlawfully detained. They ordered a writ of habeas corpus to be issued so he can be freed.

In Unprecedented Move, Canada Withdraws from Kyoto Protocol

December 14, 2011 by legitgov

In Unprecedented Move, Canada Withdraws from Kyoto Protocol 14 Dec 2011 Barely 24 hours after it signed a new global climate change agreement in Durban, South Africa, Canada became on Monday the first country to formally withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol, the only legally binding treaty to reduce emissions causing climate change. The 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) concluded last Sunday with an agreement called the Durban Platform, which includes a consensus agreement for a second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol after the first expires at the end of 2012. Canada's government under Stephen Harper essentially agreed to a continuation of Kyoto only to announce formal withdrawal after Canadian Environment Minister Peter Kent arrived back safely in Canada on Monday.

Obama and I *finally* agree on something: Obama a fan of Showtime's 'Homeland' 14 Dec 2011 President Barack Obama says he's a fan of two popular cable TV shows: HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and Showtime's "Homeland." The president said, "I'm a little darker," telling the magazine that he enjoys "Boardwalk Empire," a drama depicting Prohibition-era Atlantic City, and "Homeland," a psychological thriller about a CIA officer trying to unravel a suspected terrorist plot.

AP Sources: Dem lawmakers may drop millionaire tax

December 14, 2011 by legitgov

Democratic surrendering sociopaths alert: AP Sources: Dem lawmakers may drop millionaire tax 14 Dec 2011 DemocRATic lawmakers are considering whether to jettison their demand for a millionaires' surtax, which they had hoped to use to cover the cost of a Social Security payroll tax cut extension for millions of wage-earners, officials said Wednesday. If party leaders go ahead, it would mark a(nother) concession to Republicans in the year-end standoff over the tax cut extension that President Barack Obama requested and leaders in both parties say they want. The disclosure came as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other leading Democrats went to the White House to meet with Obama. [LOL, *of course!*]

Fukushima: Reactor 4 is falling apart

Fukushima: Reactor 4 is falling apart By Mochizuki 12 Dec 2011 The wall of the south side is falling apart at reactor 4. Reactor 4 is in the most serious situation. It is assumed that if another aftershock hits it to drop the spent fuel pool hung in the building, the entire area in eastern Japan would be too contaminated to be inhabitable. On 12/2/2011 (JST), something like "fire" was observed beside reactor 4. Since then, a strong light has been set toward Fukuichi camera as if it was hiding something by white-out. However, thanks to JNN Fukushima live camera, it was confirmed that the wall of reactor 4 was lost on the south side. At least since 12/5/2011, the wall is missing.

GOP psycho alert: GOP threatens to delay Senate bus, truck safety bill 14 Dec 2011 Senate Republicans Wednesday threatened to delay bus and truck safety legislation after an "eleventh hour" addition to the measure by Commerce Committee Democrats. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Whackjob-Texas) and other Republicans are angry that a national freight policy bill was tacked on to the safety measure without notice Friday. Hutchison said it means Republicans will hold up the bill on the floor. The panel also rejected on a party line vote an amendment from Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) to slash more than $50 million in annual spending from the bus and safety bill.

Pentagon spending bill includes sweeping detention measures

December 14, 2011 by legitgov

Pentagon spending bill includes sweeping detention measures 13 Dec 2011 Even American citizens arrested in the United States could face perpetual detention in military prisons without charge or trial under draconian new presidential powers unless Barack Obama vetoes a massive Pentagon spending bill. The sweeping new "antiterrorist" measures could also ensnare Canadians or other foreigners picked up in the United States or overseas. For instance, U.S. agents tipped off by their Canadian counterparts as part of new intelligence-sharing pacts could detain a Canadian, ship him to Guantanamo and imprison him there forever.

Japanese to fit 1,000 monkeys with Geiger counters to test radiation levels in Fukushima

December 14, 2011 by legitgov

Japanese to fit 1,000 monkeys with Geiger counters to test radiation levels in Fukushima --Monkeys set to wear the devices for decades --'We will get a better idea of how radiation is spread by rain, plants and rivers', say researchers 13 Dec 2011 Japanese researchers have enlisted wild monkeys to test radiation levels in forests near the devastated Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Plant. The primates will be fitted with radiation metres and GPS transmitters to track the levels and spread of the leaked radioactive emissions. Professor Takayuki Takahashi from Fukushima University and his team of scientists are using almost 1,000 monkeys in the monitoring project. The latest project is set to enlist a range of Minamisoma's 14 species of monkeys throughout its forests to get a broad spectrum of readings.

Hundreds in Fallujah burn U.S. flag to celebrate troops pulling out of Iraq [Right, but Blackwater terrorists remain, en masse. That issue needs to be addressed.] 14 Dec 2011 Hundreds of Iraqis set alight U.S. and Israeli flags on Wednesday as they celebrated the impending pullout of American forces from the country in the former insurgent bastion of Fallujah. Shouting slogans in support of the "resistance," the demonstrators held up banners and placards inscribed with phrases like, "Now we are free" and "Fallujah is the flame of the resistance." Surrounded by the Iraqi army, demonstrators carried posters bearing photos of apparent insurgents, faces covered and carrying weapons.
