In purge of ineligible voters, Florida gains access to U.S. database

July 15, 2012 by legitgov

In purge of ineligible voters, Florida gains access to U.S. database 15 Jul 2012 A yearlong stalemate between Florida and Washington ended Saturday when the federal government gave the state access to a federal citizenship database, which the state will use to resume an election-year purge of noncitizen voters. After repeatedly refusing, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security agreed to open its database to the Department of State, which oversees Florida's voter registration system. The state will now cross-check the names of Florida voters against a federal citizenship database known as SAVE, or Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements.

Fed. panel supports Kansas National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility

July 15, 2012 by legitgov

Fed. panel supports Kansas National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility [so US bioterrorists can create new pandemics] 13 Jul 2012 A government-backed committee of the National Research Council issued a report Friday saying the United States would have adequate biosecurity protections even if plans for a proposed $1.14 billion lab in Kansas are scaled back. The study was prepared by a subcommittee formed this spring to look at three options for the National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility that is to be built in Manhattan near the Kansas State University campus. DHS asked the National Research Council to review the threats of foreign animal disease, the capabilities needed to address such threats and analyze options for building the lab as proposed or scaling back the size and scope.

Omar Khadr: Delayed transfer from Guantanamo to Canada goes to court

Omar Khadr: Delayed transfer from Guantanamo to Canada goes to court 13 Jul 2012 Omar Khadr's lawyers tried diplomacy, then a media campaign, but with still no word from Ottawa as to when the Toronto-born prisoner will be transferred to Canada to serve the remainder of his sentence, they're taking the fight to the courts. An application for judicial review of Public Safety Minister Vic Toews's delay in deciding Khadr's transfer was filed with the federal court late Friday. "We are profoundly disappointed that the Minister's inaction has made it necessary to take this step," Toronto lawyer Brydie Bethell said.

New York Fed Was Aware of False Reporting on Rates

July 14, 2012 by legitgov

New York Fed Was Aware of False Reporting on Rates 13 Jul 2012 The Federal Reserve Bank of New York learned in April 2008, as the financial crisis was brewing, that at least one bank was reporting false interest rates. At the time, a Barclays employee told a New York Fed official that "we know that we're not posting um, an honest" rate, according to documents released by the regulator on Friday. The employee indicated that other big banks made similarly bogus reports, saying that the British institution wanted to "fit in with the rest of the crowd." Although the New York Fed conferred with Britain and American regulators about the problems and recommended reforms, it failed to stop the illegal activity, which persisted through 2009.

Greens sue to block Shell drilling in Arctic Alaska

July 14, 2012 by legitgov

Greens sue to block Shell drilling in Arctic Alaska 12 Jul 2012 Leading national conservation groups are going to federal court in a last-ditch effort to block Shell from drilling exploratory wells in the Arctic waters of Alaska's Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. The U.S. Department of Interior has approved Shell's drilling plans [Thanks, Obusha!], which include response to a drill-caused oil spill. One drilling rig, the Noble Discoverer, has reached Unalaska in the Aleutians and the oil giant expects to start drilling in early August. "We have been forced to court to make sure the Arctic Ocean is protected and Shell is prepared, as mandated by law:  The (Interior Dept.) rubber-stamped plans that rely on unbelievable assumptions, include equipment that has never been tested in Arctic conditions...," said a statement from 10 green groups, including the Sierra Club and Natural Resources Defense Council.

Tiny 2-Foot Missile Could Be 'Months' Away From Drone War

July 13, 2012 by legitgov

Tiny 2-Foot Missile Could Be 'Months' Away From Drone War 13 Jul 2012 The drone war could be shrinking faster than anyone expected. Raytheon's teeny, tiny drone missile might be ready to arm a small drone within months, the defense giant says. Since 2009, Raytheon has been experimenting with what it understatedly calls a Small Tactical Munition. It's a laser-guided missile less than two feet long and barely a 10th the weight of the Hellfire missiles that the iconic Predators and Reapers pack. And the wait for it may be almost over: "We're just tweaking the software and running some environmental tests," a business manager for Raytheon's missile division told AIN Online. That would open new worlds of possibility for the U.S. drone arsenal.

Olympics security: MoD to set up forward operating base for troops

Olympics security: MoD to set up forward operating base for troops --MoD intends to equip base in the same way it would a FOB in Afghanistan --Troops will start arriving next week 13 Jul 2012 The Ministry of Defence is to establish a forward operating base close to the Olympic Park in east London to house up to 3,500 soldiers who have been drafted in as emergency cover for the crisis-hit security contractor G4S. Defence officials have identified a preferred venue, believed to be a warehouse near Stratford, to accommodate the soldiers coming from Germany, as well as Royal Marines and members of the Parachute Regiment. The MoD is negotiating a short-term lease and change of licence over the weekend, and if approval is granted it will equip the base in the same way it would an FOB in Afghanistan, with temporary beds, kitchens, showers, and toilets. [The government is using G4S failures as a 'cover' to bring in the military for a big false flag.]

NAACP Official: Romney 'Flew In' His Own Blacks to Cheer NAACP Speech

July 13, 2012 by legitgov

NAACP Official: Romney 'Flew In' His Own Blacks to Cheer NAACP Speech 12 Jul 2012 An official with the NAACP suggested that Republican challenger Mitt Romney brought his own black supporters to the NAACP speech yesterday to give the appearance that NAACP members were applauding him. And when Romney later told Fox News that black people at the event gave him a standing ovation and said in a private meeting they would vote for him because of dissatisfaction with Obama, they were actually his own people, the official suggested. The revelation was made on MSNBC's "Ed Show" by Hilary Shelton, Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Policy and the Director of the Washington Bureau of the NAACP, who said Romney flew in black conservatives to stand up at the end of his speech, allowing Romney to claim he got a standing ovation.

Suspicious wires discovered, but no bomb on Delta plane 13 Jul 2012 The discovery of suspicious wires in plastic straws aboard a Madrid-bound Delta Air Lines jetliner on Thursday night forced the plane to return to New York, but authorities said they searched the aircraft and found no bomb. Delta Flight 126, a Boeing 767-300 with 206 passengers aboard, landed safely at John F. Kennedy airport shortly after 9:30 p.m. EDT on Thursday, about 90 minutes after takeoff, according to the airline. Delta described the situation as a "security concern" without elaborating.

BP pays $13m over safety violations at Texas plant --Explosion at Texas City refinery killed 15 workers in 2005 12 Jul 2012 BP agreed to pay $13m (£8.4m) to settle 409 safety violations found by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration after the 2005 explosion at its Texas City refinery that killed 15 workers, US labour secretary Hilda Solis said on Thursday. The settlement clears a major hurdle in the path of BP's plan to sell the 400,000-barrel-a-day refinery, the sixth largest in the US, by the end of the year.

WikiWin: Icelandic court orders Visa to process WikiLeaks money

WikiWin: Icelandic court orders Visa to process WikiLeaks money --Financial ban lifted in Assange victory 13 Jul 2012 WikiLeaks could be seeing an influx of funds after an Icelandic court ruled that Valitor, the local agent for Visa, broke the law when it stopped taking donations for the website. The court found that Valitor had broken contract laws when it stopped accepting payments sent to WikiLeaks by Visa customers in July 2011. WikiLeaks estimates that move cut its funding by 95 per cent and cost it around $20m in lost donations, leaving it chronically short of cash.

Palestinians pressured not to seek international probe into Arafat's death

July 13, 2012 by legitgov

Palestinians pressured not to seek international probe into Arafat's death 10 Jul 2012 The Palestinians' efforts to launch an international probe into the 2004 death of ex-leader Yasser Arafat face serious obstacles, a Palestinian official said Tuesday. The obstacles stem from the opposition by some countries including the United States and France, the official said on condition of anonymity. The United States has put pressure on the Palestinian leadership not to seek such an investigation because it can lead to some negative consequences on the Middle East peace process, which has been stalled since 2010, according to the official.

Investigator: Arafat died of unknown poison

Investigator: Arafat died of unknown poison 12 Jul 2012 The death of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was the result of an unknown poison, a Jordanian doctor who started an inquiry in the incident said Thursday. Arafat's medical reports were unable to diagnose the disease, but indications suggest that he was poisoned by a toxic substance that was not examined at the time, said the doctor, Abdullah al- Basheer, in a news conference upon his arrival to the West Bank. Mahmoud Abbas, Arafat's successor, ordered the investigation after Arab satellite channel al-Jazeera aired an investigative report concluding that Arafat was poisoned with radioactive polonium.

Cheney: Romney 'only' man for foreign policy [LOL! That's like Jeffrey Dahmer endorsing a cooking show.] 12 Jul 2012 Former Vice President [sic] Dick Cheney told Republican fundraisers Thursday night that Mitt Romney is the "only" man who can make the right decisions in unexpected foreign policy crises. The presumptive 2012 Republican presidential nominee called Cheney a "great American leader" - and never mentioned former President [sic] George W. Bush. Cheney said serving under four presidents taught him that a surprising international crisis is inevitable.

Navy Beginning to Implement Underwater Drones In Persian Gulf

Navy Beginning to Implement Underwater Drones In Persian Gulf 12 Jul 2012 Amid concerns of Iran closing the Strait of Hormuz during a potential [US-generated] crisis, the U.S. Navy is beginning to develop and release a set of underwater drones to find and destroy sea mines present in the Persian Gulf, according to U.S. officials. Multiple news outlets reported Thursday that tensions concerning Iran's nuclear program set in motion the reinforcement of U.S. military personnel and weaponry in the region, specifically in the form of the "SeaFox," a four-foot, 88-pound unmanned, underwater surveillance vehicle that's guided by a remote control.

Dick Cheney opens Wyoming home for major Mitt Romney fundraiser 11 Jul 2012 When Mitt Romney arrives Thursday at the gates of Teton Pines, a majestic Wyoming country club where captains of industry flock each summer to golf on an Arnold Palmer-designed course, his purpose will be greater than spending another evening separating rich people from their money. The presidential candidate will be taking a big step toward becoming the official head of the Republican Party, as he is feted at the club and then at a $30,000-a-couple dinner at the nearby home of Richard B. Cheney, the living thread connecting the past five GOP presidencies.

MoD fury as soldiers forced to carry out menial security tasks for Olympic Games

MoD fury as soldiers forced to carry out menial security tasks for Olympic Games 11 Jul 2012 Thousands more Armed Forces personnel will be forced to carry out "menial" security work for the Olympic Games, leaving defence chiefs furious. The British Army has been ordered to provide more troops for the Games to make up for a shortfall in staff provided by private security contractors. The Ministry of Defence last year said that 13,500 military personnel would be assigned to Olympic duties, with 7,500 of them in security roles at Olympic venues. It is understood that another 3,500 troops have now been told to prepare for duties at Games sites. More troops have now been given 'notice to move' orders, an Army source revealed.

Firm at centre of Olympic security shambles 'has seen fee rise by £53m' 12 Jul 2012 The company responsible for the Olympic security debacle is being paid £53 million extra for its work, after London 2012 organisers increased its "management fee" almost tenfold. Confidential Home Office documents seen by The Daily Telegraph show that G4S has had its fee for managing civilian security staff for the Games rise from £7.3 million to £60 million. The fee the company takes for running its Olympic office has risen more than 10 times faster than its spending on recruitment, the documents show.

H1N1 vaccine linked to potentially fatal nervous system condition: study 11 Jul 2012 The swine flu vaccine used during the [lab-generated] pandemic may increase the risk nervous system disorder that causes temporary paralysis almost three fold, a study has found. Researchers in Canada have found that for every million doses of the H1N1 pandemic vaccine that were administered in 2009/10 there were two extra cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome which can be fatal in extreme cases. It was found the increased risk was between 12 per cent and three fold, due to small numbers involved.

D.C. police officer who worked as White House escort allegedly said would shoot Michelle Obama --Officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady then use his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use 12 Jul 2012 A D.C. police officer who worked as a motorcycle escort for White House officials and other dignitaries was moved to administrative duty Wednesday after he allegedly was overheard making threatening comments toward Michelle Obama, according to several police officials. The police department's Internal Affairs Division is investigating the alleged comments and notified the U.S. Secret Service Wednesday, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give details of the investigation. The motorman allegedly made the comments Wednesday morning as several officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against the Obamas.

Romney at Bain 3 years longer than he stated

Romney at Bain 3 years longer than he stated 12 Jul 2012 Government documents filed by Mitt Romney and Bain Capital say Romney remained chief executive and chairman of the firm three years beyond the date he said he ceded control, even creating five new investment partnerships during that time. Romney has said he left Bain in 1999 to lead the winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, ending his role in the company. But public Securities and Exchange Commission documents filed later by Bain Capital state he remained the firm's "sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president." Also, a Massachusetts financial disclosure form Romney filed in 2003 states that he still owned 100 percent of Bain Capital in 2002. And Romney's state financial disclosure forms indicate he earned at least $100,000 as a Bain "executive" in 2001 and 2002, separate from investment earnings.

Penn State report finds Paterno and others concealed Sandusky's actions --Louis Freeh investigation says school's top officials showed a 'total disregard' for child victims amid allegations of sexual abuse 12 Jul 2012 Penn State's venerated football coach Joe Paterno and three other senior university figures repeatedly "concealed critical facts" that enabled Jerry Sandusky to continue abusing children for 14 years, according to a damning investigation into the scandal. The report, ordered by Penn State trustees, concludes they engaged in the cover-up to protect the college and its multimillion dollar football program from the consequences of bad publicity. The keenly awaited investigation, by former FBI director Louis Freeh, concludes that university president Graham Spanier, vice-president Gary Schultz, athletic director Timothy Curley and Paterno "failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade".

Oversight board questions Los Alamos nuclear lab radiation risk

July 12, 2012 by legitgov

Oversight board questions Los Alamos nuclear lab radiation risk 12 Jul 2012 Los Alamos National Laboratory significantly underestimated how much radiation could leak from the nation's premier plutonium lab after a major earthquake and fire, a federal oversight panel concluded. The Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board recently sent lab officials a report and letter saying board staff had identified a number of deficiencies in calculations that concluded any release would be below the threshold deemed safe to the public. Board staff said its calculations indicate the potential for a radiation release from an earthquake-induced fire could instead be more than four times higher than levels considered safe for public exposure.

Armed forces told to find extra 3,500 personnel to protect London Olympics --The extra personnel, the equivalent of an infantry brigade, means that 20,000 servicemen and women will be on duty - that is a fifth of the Army. 12 Jul 2012 Pressure is growing on the Home Secretary to explain how a blunder over security at the Olympic Games has caused thousands of military personnel to be drafted in at the last minute. The armed forces have been told to find an extra 3,500 personnel to protect the London Olympics to cover a shortfall in recruitment by a private security firm just a fortnight before the opening ceremony.

U.S. moving submersibles to Persian Gulf to oppose Iran 11 Jun 2012 The Navy is rushing dozens of unmanned underwater craft to the Persian Gulf to help detect and destroy mines in a major military buildup aimed at preventing Iran from closing the strategic Strait of Hormuz in the event of a [US-provoked] crisis, U.S. officials said. The tiny SeaFox submersibles each carry an underwater television camera, homing sonar and an explosive charge. The first of the SeaFox submersibles arrived in the Gulf in recent weeks, officials said, along with four MH-53 Sea Dragon helicopters and four minesweeping ships, part of a larger buildup of U.S. naval, air and ground forces in the region aimed at Iran.

House votes to repeal 'health care' law

July 11, 2012 by legitgov

House votes to repeal 'health care' law 11 Jul 2012 Republicans pushed yet another bill through the House Wednesday to repeal the nation's 2-year-old health care law, a maneuver that forced Democrats to choose between President Obama's signature domestic achievement and a public that is persistently skeptical of its value. The vote was 244-185, with five Democratic defectors siding with Republicans. By Republicans' count, the vote marked the 33rd time in 18 months that the Tea Party-infused GOP majority has tried to eliminate, defund or otherwise scale back the program - opponents scornfully call it Obamacare - since the GOP took control of the House. [If USociopaths weren't funding illegal wars all over the world, US citizens could have single-payer health care.]
