Sandy Hook fund organization considers audit of donor intent

Sandy Hook fund organization considers audit of donor intent --$11.7 million: Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation begins internal review after receiving letter from Blumenthal, Murphy 30 Jul 2013 An independent audit of donor intent is among the options being considered by officials with the Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation in response to concerns raised earlier this month by federal lawmakers. The organization has begun its own internal review of donor intent after receiving a letter last week from U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy calling for an audit of the $11.4 million in donations received by the foundation as a result of the Sandy Hook shootings.

CIA in CLG website logs for story on US, New Zealand spying on McClatchy reporter

CIA in CLG website logs for story on US, New Zealand spying on McClatchy reporter by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 31 Jul 2013 The CIA is in the CLG website logs again. [relay203.net.cia.gov 3 36 281.58 KB 30 Jul 2013 - 12:14] (Yes, the DOJ, Connecticut Cyber Alert and numerous other .govs and .mils were in there on Tuesday, too.) This time, the CIA was apparently trolling for articles about themselves spying (in concert with the New Zealand military) on a McClatchy reporter while US intelligence community was busy issuing statements of denial of same. See: New Zealand military, with US spy agencies, collected data on phone calls of McClatchy contributor - Report. Here are the website entries. Note that the CIA's IP range is 198.81.129.0/24.

WikiLeaks' Assange condemns Manning verdict, Obama

WikiLeaks' Assange condemns Manning verdict, Obama 30 Jul 2013 WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange accused President Barack Obama of "national security extremism" on Tuesday after an American military judge convicted Bradley Manning over the biggest leak of classified documents in U.S. history. Praising Manning as "the most important journalistic source that the world has ever seen", Assange said the U.S. soldier, who prosecutors said had supplied WikiLeaks with hundreds of thousands of classified U.S. documents, did not receive a fair trial and called for the verdict to be overturned. "The government kept Bradley Manning in a cage, stripped him naked and isolated him in order to break him, an act formally condemned by the United Nations Special Rapporteur for torture. This was never a fair trial," Assange said from inside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, his home for more than a year.

McClatchy news agency asks Clapper whether US spy agencies monitored reporter's phone calls

McClatchy news agency asks Clapper whether US spy agencies monitored reporter's phone calls 30 Jul 2013 The McClatchy news organization asked National Intelligence Director [and perjurer] James Clapper on Tuesday whether U.S. intelligence agencies monitored cellphone calls between a McClatchy freelance reporter and his sources in Afghanistan. In a letter to Clapper, Anders Gyllenhaal, McClatchy's vice president of news, and Karole Morgan-Prager, vice president, corporate development and general counsel, called the allegations that U.S. intelligence agencies helped target a journalist working for a U.S. news organization "disturbing." They asked Clapper whether any U.S. intelligence agencies helped in the "collection, use or analysis" of any metadata from McClatchy freelancer Jon Stephenson's cellphone while he worked in Afghanistan last year.

San Diego city council authorizes legal action against mayor 30 Jul 2013 The San Diego City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to sue Mayor Bob Filner to shield the city from liability in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against the mayor by his former press secretary. The City Attorney's Office said in a statement that the council voted unanimously in closed session on Tuesday to authorize the filing of what amounts to a new lawsuit against the mayor. Seven women have publicly accused Filner of unwanted sexual advances.

Jailed Journalist Barrett Brown Faces 105 Years For Reporting on Hacked Private Intelligence Firms

Jailed Journalist Barrett Brown Faces 105 Years For Reporting on Hacked Private Intelligence Firms 11 Jul 2013 Journalist Barrett Brown spent his 300th day behind bars this week on a range of charges filed after he used information obtained by the hacker group Anonymous to report on the operations of private intelligence firms. Brown faces 17 charges ranging from threatening an FBI agent to credit card fraud for posting a link online to a document that contained stolen credit card data. But according to his supporters, Brown is being unfairly targeted for daring to investigate the highly secretive world of private intelligence and military contractors. ...Brown similarly analyzed and wrote about the millions of internal company emails from Stratfor Global Intelligence that were leaked in 2011.

Yahoo egroups relegate CLG Newsletter with Bradley Manning verdict to spam bins

Yahoo egroups relegate CLG Newsletter with Bradley Manning verdict to spam bins by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 30 Jul 2013 Another day, another obstacle. Yahoo -- aka Yahell -- relegated Tuesday's CLG Newsletter to the spam bins of numerous Yahoo egroups -- even in Yahoo egroups I moderate. Apparently, NSAssociate Yahell doesn't like various topics covered in Tuesday's CLG Newsletter, including: Sandy Hook Officer: 'There were probably two shooters'; Michael Hastings's assassination; Mers virus, and a snippy comment regarding Fort Detrick; 9/11 graffiti in Connecticut; indignities that await Edward Snowden; New Zealand military and US spy agencies collected data on McClatchy reporter; US drones slaughtering more Pakistanis, sub-linked, of course, as I'm not 'allowed' to include the direct link to Press TV or Columbia University will reject the CLG Newsletter outright; genetically engineered sugar beets [fortunately] destroyed in southern Oregon; more BP and Exxon Mobil environmental terrorism; and, of course, the Bradley Manning verdict. Hmm. I wonder what Yahoo found cringe-worthy?

Bradley Manning found not guilty of 'aiding the enemy,' guilty of five espionage charges

Bradley Manning found not guilty of 'aiding the enemy,' guilty of five espionage charges --Judge is the jury --Press barred from courtroom --Judge Col. Denise Lind says sentencing phase of trial begins tomorrow, Wed Jul 31, at 0930. Bradley Manning cleared of 'aiding the enemy' but guilty of most other charges --Manning convicted of multiple Espionage Act violations --Acquitted of most serious 'aiding the enemy' charge --Army private faces maximum jail sentence of 130 years 30 Jul 2013 Bradley Manning, the source of the massive WikiLeaks trove of secret disclosures, faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 130 years in military jail after he was convicted of most charges on which he stood trial. Colonel Denise Lind, the military judge presiding over the court martial of the US soldier, delivered her verdict in curt and pointed language. "Guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty," she repeated over and over, as the reality of a prolonged prison sentence for Manning on top of the three years he has already spent in detention dawned. The one ray of light in an otherwise bleak outcome for the Army private was that he was found not guilty of the single most serious charge against him - that he knowingly "aided the enemy", in practice al-Qaida [al-CIAduh], by disclosing information to the WikiLeaks website that in turn made it accessible to all users including enemy groups.

Obama to propose 'grand bargain' to slash corporate tax rate, infrastructure

Mega barf alert and gag me with a chainsaw: Obama to propose 'grand bargain' to slash corporate tax rate, infrastructure 30 Jul 2013 President Barack Obama will propose a "grand bargain for middle-class jobs" on Tuesday that would cut the U.S. corporate tax rate and use billions of dollars in revenues generated by a business tax overhaul to fund projects aimed at creating jobs helping Wall Street. Obama wants to cut the corporate tax rate of 35 percent down to 28 percent and give manufacturers a preferred rate of 25 percent. He also wants a minimum tax on foreign earnings as a tool against corporate tax evasion and increased use of tax havens. The new twist is that in exchange for his support for a corporate tax reduction, he wants money generated by the tax overhaul to be used on a mix of proposals such as funding infrastructure projects like repairing roads and bridges, improving education at community colleges, and promoting manufacturing, senior administration officials said. [See CLG spin-off Facebook group, I Really Hated Bush but Obama is Actually Worse and join us.]

Louisiana Agency Sues Dozens of Energy Companies for Damage to Wetlands

Louisiana Agency Sues Dozens of Energy Companies for Damage to Wetlands 25 Jul 2013 Louisiana officials filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against dozens of energy companies, hoping that the courts will force them to pay for decades of damage to fragile coastal wetlands that help buffer the effects of hurricanes on the region. The suit, which was denounced by Louisiana’s governor, Bobby Jindal [R-BP Whore], was filed in civil district court in New Orleans by the board of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East. The board argues that the energy companies, including BP and Exxon Mobil, should be held responsible for fixing damage done by cutting thousands of miles of oil and gas access and pipeline canals through the wetlands. It alleges that the network functioned "as a mercilessly efficient, continuously expanding system of ecological destruction," killing vegetation, eroding soil and allowing salt water into freshwater areas. "What remains of these coastal lands is so seriously diseased that if nothing is done, it will slip into the Gulf of Mexico by the end of this century, if not sooner," the filing stated.

McCrory signs NC abortion bill as protesters hold vigil outside governor's mansion

McCrory signs NC abortion bill as protesters hold vigil outside governor's mansion 29 Jul 2013 While Planned Parenthood supporters held a 12-hour vigil across the street from the Executive Mansion, Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed the very bill they were rallying against. McCrory's office issued a statement Monday evening saying the governor had signed a number of high-profile bills, including the abortion bill, a gun-rights bill and a scholarship grant for children with disabilities to attend nonpublic schools. Abortion-rights protestors outside McCrory’s residence gathered to denounce a bill they say will restrict access to safe and legal abortions. They earlier had called for McCrory to veto the measure -- noting the campaign promise he made last year not to sign any legislation that would further restrict access to abortions.

Genetically engineered sugar beets destroyed in southern Oregon

Genetically engineered sugar beets destroyed in southern Oregon 20 Jun 2013 Federal investigators are asking the public to help solve middle-of-the-night crimes that left ruined fields of genetically engineered sugar beets in rural Jackson County. The crop destruction took place over the course of two separate nights in early June, when an unknown individual or group destroyed about 6,500 sugar beet plants genetically engineered to stand up to the herbicide Roundup on a pair of privately-owned plots of land leased and 'managed' by Syngenta. The first act of what the FBI considers "economic sabotage and a violation of federal law involving damage to commercial agricultural enterprises," took place during the night of June 8, when about 1,000 sugar beet plants on one property were destroyed. Three nights later, the destruction continued on another property, where another 5,500 plants were ruined. [Obviously, the petitions against deadly GMOs are not working--Obusha and the corpora-terrorists ignore the people. *Burn and boot* - exactly!]

On Gay Priests, Pope Francis Asks, 'Who Am I to Judge?'

On Gay Priests, Pope Francis Asks, 'Who Am I to Judge?' 30 Jul 2013 For generations, homosexuality has largely been a taboo topic for the Vatican, ignored altogether or treated as "an intrinsic moral evil," in the words of the previous pope. In that context, brief remarks by Pope Francis suggesting that he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation, made aboard the papal airplane on the way back from his first foreign trip, to Brazil, resonated through the church. "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?" Francis told reporters, speaking in Italian but using the English word "gay."

McCrory not familiar with all of bill he's to sign

McCrory not familiar with all of bill he's to sign 27 Jul 2013 North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory says he will sign into law a Republican-backed bill making sweeping changes to how and when citizens can vote even though he has not seen one of its key provisions. McCrory was then asked by an Associated Press reporter specifically about the provision ending pre-registration by those under 18. "I don't know enough, I'm sorry, I haven't seen that part of the bill," McCrory replied. Republicans have said the legislation is meant to prevent voter fraud. But non-partisan voting rights groups, Democrats and libertarians, suggested the true goal is suppressing voter turnout -- especially among blacks, the young, the elderly and the poor.

Former Deputy Attorney General under George W. Bush confirmed as FBI head

Former Deputy Attorney General under George W. Bush confirmed as FBI head 30 Jul 2013 James Comey, the former Deputy US Attorney General under President [sic] George W. Bush, has sailed through a confirmation vote in the US Senate to become the next head of the FBI. Comey, 52, will replace Robert Mueller, who has been the head of the bureau since just before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Though a Republican, Comey was able to garner bipartisan support during his brief period as acting attorney general, for refusing to sanction a Bush-era government surveillance initiative in 2004, which may partly account for Monday’s 93-1 Senate vote.

U.S. says JP Morgan manipulated market; settlement seen

U.S. says JP Morgan manipulated market; settlement seen 29 Jul 2013 The U.S. power regulator outlined its case of market manipulation against JPMorgan Chase & Co on Monday as industry sources said a final settlement on the issue should come on Tuesday. Traders used improper bidding tactics in California and the Midwest to boost profits, officials said in a statement that brought to light some details of an extensive investigation. Reports of that probe have circulated for months and a deal with the regulator could put an end to a distraction for JPMorgan Chief Executive Jamie Dimon.

Explosions rock Blue Rhino gas plant in Florida

Explosions rock Blue Rhino gas plant in Florida --Multiple injuries reported 29 Jul 2013 A series of major explosions at a Florida gas plant has injured several workers and left others missing. The Orlando Sentinel reports Monday night Tavares City Administrator John Drury says 10 of 24 people working at Blue Rhino, a propane-take business there, have not been accounted for after the blasts. Lake County Sheriff Gary Borders says the blasts occurred inside the plant and blew the roof off.

Beyond his Moscow airport limbo, indignities await Edward Snowden

Beyond his Moscow airport limbo, indignities await Edward Snowden 29 Jul 2013 A Russia Today commentary titled "The Layover From Hell" noted that should the fugitive's [Edward Snowden's] July 16 application for temporary asylum be accepted, "he will have to undergo a daunting medical assessment designed especially for immigrants." That would include screening for HIV, tuberculosis, leprosy and the sexually transmitted disease chancroid, the network noted. Snowden will have to register his whereabouts with police at all times and will probably be limited to finding a room in a processing facility for asylum seekers far from the capital. "I don’t think it is good for Snowden to travel freely in Russia, as he is a wanted man," said the migration service press secretary, Vladimir Volokh. He observed that outside of the airport, "his personal security cannot be guaranteed." That is a loaded phrase implying that Russian security agents won't be watching his back for any CIA-style operations of the type that snatched terrorism suspects off foreign streets and "renditioned" them to U.S. custody for interrogation torture.

Conn. DOT officials trying to stop 9/11 graffiti on bridges, overpasses

Conn. DOT officials trying to stop 9/11 graffiti on bridges, overpasses [<g>] 22 Jul 2013 Some graffiti popping up on highways has a lot of people talking, and the state isn't too happy about how a group of vandals truth artists are trying to get their message across. When people drive around central Connecticut, it's hard to miss some of the graffiti popping up on bridges, overpasses and road signs that says "9-11 Truth," "W-T-C" and "Building 7." All the phrases are scrawled across overpasses on some major highways. The Connecticut Department of Transportation is fed up with graffiti and doesn't have enough resources to keep up with it. [That's right, so just stop trying.]

Milford, Where Ku Klux Klan Group Dropped Leaflets, Has Racist Incidents in Its Past

Milford, Where Ku Klux Klan Group Dropped Leaflets, Has Racist Incidents in Its Past 10 Jul 2013 A self-described Ku Klux Klan-affiliated group that leafleted a city neighborhood Monday is just the latest in a series of similar incidents over the years. However, city residents and political leaders have met such activity with anti-racist activism. In 2011, a U.S. District Court judge sentenced Alexander DeFelice, a city resident, to a 10-year prison term for trying to sell guns and grenades to a federal informant posing as a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

Mers: New virus 'not following Sars' path'

Mers: New virus 'not following Sars' path' [Right, it's following Fort Detrick's path.] 26 Jul 2013 The new Mers virus, which has killed half of those infected, is "unlikely" to reach the same scale as Sars, ministers in Saudi Arabia say. Most of the 90 Mers cases reported so far have been in Saudi Arabia. Mers is from the same group of viruses as the common cold and Sars, which killed 774 people. However, a detailed analysis of the Saudi cases, published in Lancet Infectious Diseases, did warn of "major gaps" in understanding of the virus.

Fast food strikes intensify in seven cities

Fast food strikes intensify in seven cities 29 July 2013 This morning marks the start of what will likely be the largest fast food worker mobilization in U.S. history, with a New York City walkout today kicking off strikes in seven cities over four days. These work stoppages by non-union workers are the latest escalation in an embattled labor movement's unprecedented challenge to the overwhelmingly non-union industry, whose ranks are growing and whose conditions are spreading elsewhere in the U.S. economy.

Some think car crash death of reporter who took down ex-general could have been an assassination

Some think car crash death of reporter who took down ex-general could have been an assassination 24 Jul 2013 If the U.S. Department of Justice under President Barack Obama's oversight is willing to investigate journalists, and has allowed the FBI to use drones on American soil to spy on citizens, is it possible that federal employees trained in espionage have the power to hack journalist Michael Hastings's car to assassinate someone they thought  threatened "their" security? The answer is a resounding "yes" according to computer researchers who delivered a report, Experimental Security Analysis of a Modern Automobile, submitted to a 2010 IEEE symposium on privacy and security.  What's more, the researchers say, hacking a car's computer and remotely controlling it is easy. Some conspiracy theorists won't stop believing that journalist Hastings's death was anything but an assassination.

Cumulus planning to drop Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity

Cumulus planning to drop Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity 28 Jul 2013 In a major shakeup for the radio industry, Cumulus Media, the second-biggest broadcaster in the country, is planning to drop both Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity from its stations at the end of the year, an industry source told POLITICO on Sunday. Cumulus has decided that it will not renew its contracts with either host, the source said, a move that would remove the two most highly rated conservative talk personalities from more than 40 Cumulus channels in major markets. Cumulus is expected to move some of its existing talent -- which includes Mike Huckabee, Mark Levin, and Michael Savage -- into one of the slots.

US drone strike kills 5 in northwestern Pakistan

US drone strike kills 5 in northwestern Pakistan 28 Jul 2013 At least five people have been killed in an attack by a US assassination drone in northwestern Pakistan. The casualties come after two missiles hit a convoy of people in the Shawal area of North Waziristan Sunday evening. Local security officials say several people were also severely injured in the fatal attack, which sent shock waves across the troubled region. The latest attack come as Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has recently blasted US assassination drone strikes in his country, describing them as a violation of international law and the UN charter.

Will Moscow say 'Da' to Snowden?

Will Moscow say 'Da' to Snowden? 28 Jul 2013 The US Senate has passed a bill authored by hawkish Senator Lindsey Graham that will enable Washington to move towards sanctioning countries that are seen as "aiding" Snowden. The message being sent is clear -- American authorities are dead set on getting their "fugitive" and they are even willing to take the unprecedented move to impose sanctions on other countries for their failure to extradite a US citizen. Such a move completely undermines an individual's right of asylum as specified by international law, and is a deeply hypocritical stance for a country that loves to posture itself as an arbiter of righteousness and a haven for asylum seekers and dissidents... To add insult to injury, Moscow knows that the US would never concede to the demands it is currently placing on Russia if the tables were turned.

New Zealand military, with US spy agencies, collected data on phone calls of McClatchy contributor - Report

New Zealand military, with US spy agencies, collected data on phone calls of McClatchy contributor - Report 29 Jul 2013 New Zealand's defense minister said Monday that an investigation is underway into a report that U.S. intelligence agencies helped his nation's military track the mobile telephone calls of a freelance journalist while he worked for McClatchy Newspapers in Afghanistan. A report was published in the Sunday Star Times of Auckland that said that the New Zealand military asked "U.S. spy agencies" to help them collect the "metadata" of cellular calls made by Jon Stephenson, a New Zealand freelance journalist who was based in Afghanistan. The data collection occurred in the latter half of last year while Stephenson was under contract in Kabul for McClatchy and was aimed at identifying Stephenson’s contacts, the report said, citing unidentified sources.

Ex-CIA officer: U.S. shielded higher-ups in kidnap case

Ex-CIA officer: U.S. shielded higher-ups in kidnap case --The official says she was used as a scapegoat following one of the Bush administration's secret 'extraordinary renditions.' 28 Jul 2013 A former CIA officer has broken the U.S. silence around the 2003 abduction of a radical Islamist cleric in Italy, charging that the agency inflated the threat the preacher posed and that the United States then allowed Italy to prosecute her and other Americans to shield President [sic] George W. Bush and other U.S. officials from responsibility for approving the operation. Confirming for the first time that she worked undercover for the CIA in Milan when the operation took place, Sabrina De Sousa provided new details about the "extraordinary rendition" that led to the only criminal prosecution stemming from the secret Bush regime's rendition and detention program launched after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
