Group gathers in Baltimore to protest Zimmerman verdict

Group gathers in Baltimore to protest Zimmerman verdict 14 Jul 2013 A group of speakers in Baltimore expressed outrage Sunday morning at the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin, saying the finding of the Florida jurors sent a message that young black men fail to get fairness from the judicial system. Members of the Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly spoke at McKeldin Square in the Inner Harbor as a kickoff to what they say would begin two more events, rallies at 5 p.m. Sunday and another at the same time Monday. About a dozen people attended the 9 a.m. gathering -- which was overseen at a distance by a group of city police officers with their vehicles.

Demonstrators gather in LA's Leimert Park to protest Zimmerman verdict

Demonstrators gather in LA's Leimert Park to protest Zimmerman verdict 13 Jul 2013 People began gathering in Leimert Park on Saturday night to protest the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to police and social media reports. "We are getting reports that people are starting to gather," said LAPD Officer Phillip Ahn. "It's in its infancy." Ahn said police units have been dispatched to the scene "to stand by." [The corrupt, violent state that allows Trayvon Martin-style shootings brainwashes the corrupt, violent media which in turn brainwashes the people to *never* resort to violence as a tactic --and, therefore, perpetuates what the state does. See how it works? That way, nothing ever changes. --LRP]

Zimmerman Is Acquitted of Murder and Manslaughter

Zimmerman Is Acquitted of Murder and Manslaughter 13 Jul 2013 George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution's contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death.

Snowden documents could be 'worst nightmare' for U.S.: journalist

Snowden documents could be 'worst nightmare' for U.S.: journalist 13 Jul 2013 Fugitive former U.S. spy contractor Edward Snowden controls dangerous information that could become the United States' "worst nightmare" if revealed, a journalist familiar with the data said in a newspaper interview. Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who first published the documents Snowden leaked, said in a newspaper interview published on Saturday that the U.S. government should be careful in its pursuit of the former computer analyst. "Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had," Greenwald said in an interview in Rio de Janeiro with the Argentinean daily La Nacion.

The Staged Malala Yousafzai Story: Neoliberal near-Martyr of the Global Free Market Wars

The Staged Malala Yousafzai Story: Neoliberal near-Martyr of the Global Free Market Wars by Scott Creighton 11 Oct 2012 Two days after the Pakistani military put down a protest against U.S. drone strikes killing innocent civilians in Pakistan, along comes the fake Taliban to claim credit for shooting little innocent Malala in cold blood... Bring in the professional photographers and the acting lessons for little miss "grief stricken" from corporate artisans like those at Hill & Knowlton who taught Nayirah al-Ṣabaḥ to lie to the U.S. congress about a bunch of mean-old Iraqis who took babies from their incubators and threw them on the cold floor. You can expect a staring performance by Malala in front of some kind of congressional committee just as soon as she "recovers" from her "wounds." The "brave Malala" story is completely fake just like the Jessica Lynch story, just like the Nurse Nayirah story, just like the Nada story from Iran. It's a marketing campaign, selling war via emotional contextualism dependent on high levels of cognitive dissonance.

US firms ordered to pay over Agent Orange

US firms ordered to pay over Agent Orange 12 Jul 2013 South Korea's highest court has upheld a ruling ordering two US Agent Orange makers to compensate 39 Vietnam War veterans in one of the country's most prominent lawsuits. The Supreme Court recognised the epidemiological correlation between the toxic defoliant and skin diseases for the first time, saying the 39 victims should receive a total of 466 million won ($A454,445) from [corpora-terrorists] Dow Chemical and Monsanto. The veterans had complained that Agent Orange was responsible for skin diseases such as "chemical acne", which is caused by exposure to dioxin contained in Agent Orange, the court said. [Gee, Monsanto was poisoning soldiers (and civilians) back in the 1960s with Agent Orange and now poisoning everyone by poisoning the food supply, backed by Obusha and the US Congress. --LRP]

Opponents want Calif. court to stop gay weddings

Opponents want Calif. court to stop gay weddings 12 Jul 2013 Opponents of same-sex marriage say they are asking the California Supreme Court to order county clerks to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The group that sponsored the 2008 ballot measure banning gay marriage in the state said it filed a petition on Friday that makes a two-pronged legal attack against same-sex marriages. First, the group says state officials ordering county clerks to issue the licenses have no legal authority to do so. They also say Proposition 8 actually remains in force because the U.S. Supreme Court tossed out the case on a legal technicality rather than ruling directly on the constitutionality of the marriage ban.

North Carolina Governor McCrory won't veto House abortion bill

North Carolina Governor McCrory won't veto House abortion bill 12 Jul 2013 North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory (R) told reporters while on a trip to New Bern Friday that he will not veto an abortion bill approved by the North Carolina House of Representatives Thursday. Earlier in the week, McCrory had threatened to veto a Senate version of the bill. He said Friday he would still veto that version if it reaches his desk. During his campaign, McCrory said he would not sign any legislation that would increase restrictions on access to abortions in North Carolina. But this week, he has signaled he would sign bills that seek to improve the health and safety of women who seek abortions increase restrictions on access to abortions in North Carolina.

They carried signs expressing support or condemnation of Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen. However, most of those outside the courthouse appeared to support the notion that Zimmerman is guilty.

But JDC sources said the dumping occurred after it received assurances from the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, which contracted it to carry out the decontamination work, that the state body had informed the local governments about the discharge in advance and no problem [?!?] was anticipated.

The US has lobbied governments around the world to refuse entry to Snowden and has invalidated his US passport.

U.S. IRS documents show liberal groups vetted like Tea Party: Democrats 12 Jul 2013 A top Democrat probing the Internal Revenue Service scrutiny of conservative "Tea Party" groups released documents on Friday suggesting that "Occupy" and other liberal-leaning groups received similar scrutiny. Representative Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives' Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released documents from 2010 and 2012 used by IRS staff reviewing tax-exempt applications that suggest the key words "Progressive" and "Occupy" were subjected to added review, in addition to Tea Party applications.

Statement by Edward Snowden to human rights groups at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport 12 Jul 2013 Edward Joseph Snowden delivered a statement to human rights organizations and individuals at Sheremetyevo airport at 5pm Moscow time today, Friday 12th July. The meeting lasted 45 minutes... The Human Rights Watch representative used this opportunity to tell Mr Snowden that on her way to the airport she had received a call from the US Ambassador to Russia, who asked her to relay to Mr Snowden that the US Government does not categorise Mr Snowden as a whistleblower and that he has broken United States law. This further proves the United States Government's persecution of Mr Snowden and therefore that his right to seek and accept asylum should be upheld.

Edward Snowden re-emerges for Moscow airport meeting

Edward Snowden re-emerges for Moscow airport meeting 12 Jul 2013 Fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden has met rights groups and lawyers at a Moscow airport, in his first appearance in three weeks.

Napolitano Stepping Down as Homeland Security Chief 12 Jul 2013 Janet Napolitano, who has served as President Obama's secretary of homeland security since the beginning of the administration, announced Friday that she is stepping down to become president of the University of California system. Ms. Napolitano, a former governor of Arizona, has overseen the administration's handling of homegrown terrorism incidents [and false flags], natural disasters and immigration, one of the most expansive portfolios of anyone in the cabinet. Ms. Napolitano had her eye on becoming the next attorney general, but with this move is taking herself out of the Washington political arena. [Now, if we could only get Homeland Security to step down...]

Probe into claims Canadian officers told soldiers to ignore sexual assaults of Afghan boys by allied soldiers

Probe into claims Canadian officers told soldiers to ignore sexual assaults of Afghan boys by allied soldiers --Once the report is finally approved, Chief of Defence Staff Thomas Lawson could decide to keep some or all of the report secret. 04 Jul 2013 After five years, the Canadian military is still investigating claims that Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan were told by their superiors to ignore incidents where Afghan soldiers and interpreters sexually assaulted young boys. The Star interviewed three Canadian soldiers, three Canadian Forces chaplains, and a lieutenant colonel who all said they had either first- or second-hand information about the alleged sexual attacks in Afghanistan. Tyrel Braaten, for instance, a Canadian army bombardier, said during a December 2008 interview that he had witnessed an Afghan interpreter taking a boy who was about 12 years old into a building on Forward Operating Base Wilson, about 30 kilometres outside Kandahar. The interpreter, who worked for the Canadian army, told Braaten that the boy was one of "the bitches." [They don't 'hate us for our freedoms.' They hate us because NAT0/USociopaths are war criminals, terrorists, and child rapists -- and enablers of same.]

Homeland Security chair: FBI not cooperating with Boston bombings probe

Homeland Security chair: FBI not cooperating with Boston bombings probe 10 Jul 2013 The FBI is stonewalling a congressional investigation into intelligence failures, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee complained today at a hearing looking into the Boston Marathon bombings [aka false flag] and several other domestic terrorism assaults. "I walked the streets of Boston with my colleague (U.S. Rep.) Bill Keating, and while the city's resilience and strength were obvious everywhere we went, how this attack could have occurred in spite of multiple warnings was still not clear," said Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas. The Republican... said his committee would begin hearing classified testimony tomorrow in a closed session with the federal Department of Homeland Security and officials from the National Counterterrorism Center. "The FBI has refused to appear and continues to refuse this committee's appropriate requests for information and documents crucial to our investigation into what happened in Boston," McCaul said.
