Hollande Bolstered as Socialists Win French Parliament Control 17 Jun 2012 French President Francois Hollande's Socialist Party and its allies won an absolute majority in the National Assembly, exit polls showed, paving the way for them to pass legislation without the aid of other members of parliament.

June 18, 2012 by legitgov

'Military Council in Egypt to Continue Dominance Despite Elections' 18 Jun 2012 An Egyptian political activist Vail Guneym on Sunday said that the High Military Council would continue dominance over Egypt despite the elections.

The Egyptian military has been given the authority to arrest civilians.

Attack on U.S. outpost in Afghanistan worse than originally reported 16 Jun 2012 A June 1 attack on a U.S. outpost near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border was much worse than originally disclosed by the military as insurgents pounded the base with a truck bomb, killing two Americans and seriously wounding about three dozen troops, officials acknowledged Saturday. The blast flattened the dining hall and post exchange at Forward Operating Base Salerno in Khost province, a frequent target of insurgents in the past. Five Afghan civilians were killed and more than 100 other U.S. troops were treated for minor injuries. U.S. officials estimated that the truck was carrying 1,500 pounds of explosives.

June 18, 2012 by legitgov

Christian missionary group with pig's head taunt Arab-Americans at Dearborn festival 16 Jun 2012 Tensions flared Friday evening at the annual Arab International Festival in Dearborn as members of some Christian missionary groups - including one called the Bible Believers - taunted Arab Americans with a pig's head and signs that promoted hatred of Islam. "You’re gonna burn in hell," one missionary shouted at a group of young Arab-American boys listening to him speak on Warren Avenue, where the festival takes place. The festival continues today in Dearborn, but the members of the Bible Believers won't be there because they'll be protesting a gay festival in Ohio, said Arab Festival organizers.

Russia Bans 11 U.S. Officials Over Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib

Russia Bans 11 U.S. Officials Over Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib 17 Jun 2012 Russia barred 11 serving and former U.S. administration officials for human rights abuses at facilities including Guantanamo Bay and the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. The ban on entry to Russia was enacted last year in retaliation for a U.S. visa ban for 11 Russian officials accused of playing a role in the death of anti-corruption lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, President Vladimir Putin's top foreign policy adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said in an e-mailed statement. "These people are linked to high-profile human rights abuses, including torture and abuse of detainees in special prisons set up by the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency in Guantanamo, Bagram in Afghanistan and Abu Ghraib in Iraq," Ushakov said.

Deformed Fish Found Downstream of Tar Sands Mines

June 18, 2012 by legitgov

Deformed Fish Found Downstream of Tar Sands Mines 14 Jun 2012 Chief Allan Adam, the head of the Fort Chipewyan community in the far north of Alberta, has been fishing in Lake Athabasca for all of his life. His father, now 76 years old, has been fishing there even longer. And neither of them has seen anything like what they pulled from the lake on May 30: two grotesquely deformed, lesion-covered fish. When they caught the sickly fish, each taken from a different part of the lake, the two Indigenous men immediately figured that it had something to do with the massive tar sands oil mines that lie about 300 kilometers upstream along the Athabasca River.

King, whose 1991 videotaped beating by the Los Angeles police became a symbol of the nation's continuing racial tensions and subsequently led to a week of deadly race riots after the officers were acquitted, was found dead Sunday in a swimming pool at the home he shared with his fiancée in Rialto, Calif. He was 47. There was no evidence of foul play, the Rialto police said.

June 18, 2012 by legitgov

KBR, Guard soldiers due back in court in sodium dichromate case 17 Jun 2012 After increasingly testy filings in U.S. District Court in Portland, lawyers for a set of Oregon National Guard soldiers and for defense contractor KBR Inc. return to court this week for two days of hearings... The most explosive motion to be argued this week is the soldiers' charge that KBR deliberately concealed proof that it knew as early as 2002 that sodium dichromate was present at Qarmat Ali. Their lawyers have asked the court to compel KBR to produce that proof and seek sanctions against the company and award legal expenses to them.

U.S. court rules for Rumsfeld in Iraq torture suit

U.S. court rules for Rumsfeld in Iraq torture suit 15 Jun 2012 A federal appeals court ruled on Friday that a former U.S. government contractor who claimed he was tortured while detained by the U.S. military in Iraq cannot sue former Defense Secretary [war criminal] Donald Rumsfeld for money damages. In line with rulings by other appeals courts that decided similar cases, the three-judge panel said Congress has not authorized prisoners to sue U.S. military and government officials for their treatment while in detention. It ruled that a district court judge had been wrong in allowing the lawsuit to go forward and in rejecting Rumsfeld's motion to dismiss it.

Alleged hacker Ryan Cleary to be tried in UK not US 15 Jun 2012 An Essex teenager suspected of masterminding an international computer hacking ring is not expected to be extradited to the United States despite facing charges in California. Ryan Cleary, 19, who has Asperger's syndrome, is alleged to have been in involved in attacks on the computer systems of the CIA, the US Senate, and other websites. He was charged last year with a string of cyber attacks on UK–based websites and his solicitor disclosed yesterday (FRI) that he is now subject to an indictment with the same charges in the US. However, Karen Todner added: "We understand that the US Prosecutor has stated that should Mr Cleary be dealt with by the UK courts in respect of these charges then the US will not seek Mr Cleary's extradition."

U.S. government faulted over risk of pathogens escaping lab [USociopaths *want* them to escape, so contractors can make a killing on the clean-up while implementing new police state measures, as they did after the 9/11 inside job.] 15 Jun 2012 The Department of Homeland Security underestimates the risk that 'human error' could allow pathogens to escape from a proposed $1 billion lab designed to study lethal animal-borne diseases, a U.S. advisory panel warned on Friday. The department's risk assessment was "overly optimistic" about the chances of mistakes leading to a release of infectious material from the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility planned for Manhattan, Kansas, according to a report by the National Research Council.

US declassifying attacks in Yemen, Somalia 15 Jun 2012 The White House is partially lifting the lid of secrecy on its counterterrorism campaign against al-Qaida [al-CIAduh]  in Yemen and Somalia by formally acknowledging for the first time that it is conducting lethal attacks in those countries, officials said Friday. The White House's semiannual report to Congress on the state of U.S. combat operations abroad, delivered Friday, mentions what has been widely reported for years but never formally acknowledged by the administration: The U.S. military has been taking "direct action" against members of al-Qaida and affiliates civilians in Yemen and Somalia. The report does not elaborate, but "direct action" is a military term of art that refers to a range of lethal attacks, which in the case of Yemen and Somalia include attacks by armed drones.

Japan's Prime Minister Orders Restart of Two Nuclear Reactors

June 16, 2012 by legitgov

Japan's Prime Minister Orders Restart of Two Nuclear Reactors 17 Jun 2012 Brushing aside widespread public opposition to avoid feared [government-created] electric power shortages, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda ordered the reactivation of two nuclear reactors at a plant in western Japan on Saturday, making it the nation's first plant to go back online since the crisis last year in Fukushima. The decision to restart the Ohi nuclear plant ends the temporary freeze of Japan's nuclear power industry, when all 50 of the country's functional reactors were idled after the triple meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Saturday's decision was seen here as a victory for the still-powerful nuclear industry and its backers in the business world, whose political support has been crucial to the otherwise unpopular Mr. Noda.

Revealed: 64 Drone Bases on American Soil --22 locations planned for future bases 13 Jun 2012 There are 64 drone bases on American soil. That includes 12 locations housing Predator and Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles, which can be armed. Public Intelligence, a non-profit that advocates for free access to information, released a DoD Current and Future U.S. Drone Activities Map on Tuesday. Assembled from military sources - especially this little-known June 2011 Air Force presentation - it is arguably the most comprehensive map so far of the spread of the Pentagon's unmanned fleet. The exact missions performed at those locations, however, are not clear.

Earlier this week, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom decided not to reopen Assange's appeal and upheld the decision that the WikiLeaks founder should be extradited to face sex crime proceedings in Sweden.

Wisconsin: None dare call it vote rigging

June 15, 2012 by legitgov

Wisconsin: None dare call it vote rigging By Bob Fitrakis 14 Jun 2012 If vote-rigging prospers, none may call it vote-rigging. It simply becomes the new norm. Once again, the universal laws of statistics apply only outside U.S. borders. The recall vote in Wisconsin produced another significant 7% discrepancy between the unadjusted exit poll and the so-called "recorded vote." In actual social science, this level of discrepancy, with the results being so far outside the expected margin of error would not be accepted... Here's where U.S. elections become laughable. A couple of private companies count our votes with secret proprietary hardware and software, the most notable being ES&S. Every standard of election transparency is routinely violated in the U.S. electronic version of faith-based voting. How the corporate-dominated media deals with the issue is by "adjusting the exit polls."

U.S. to Stop Deporting Some Illegal Immigrants 16 Jun 2012 Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children will be able to obtain work permits and be safe from deportation under a new policy announced on Friday by the Obama administration. President Obama, speaking to reporters in the White House Rose Garden on Friday afternoon, said the changes would make the immigration system "more efficient, more fair and more just." The policy, effective immediately, will apply to people who are currently no more than 30 years old, who arrived in the country before they turned 16 and have lived in the United States for five years.

Extremely High Radiation Detected on Floor Above Crippled Fukushima Reactor

Extremely High Radiation Detected on Floor Above Crippled Fukushima Reactor 15 Jun 2012 Extremely high level of radiation has been detected on a floor just above the No.2 reactor at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan, the plant operator said on Thursday. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) said a reading of 880 millisieverts per hour of radiation was detected on the fifth floor, which is 4.5 meters above the reactor containment vessel. The reading was taken by a robot which the company deployed in the reactor building on Wednesday. Tepco suspects that radioactive substances leaked from the No.2 reactor moved through the location.
