Hidden Cact-Eye: Paradise Valley Installs Cameras in Cactus | 07 May 2015 | (AZ) The City of Paradise Valley has added cactus with cameras in them over the past few days, but residents have no idea why, and the city doesn't want to talk about them. About two dozen fake cactus already serve as cover for cell towers, but some people were alarmed to see cameras being place in cactus around town. If you look close enough at the cactus as you drive through Paradise Valley, you might see some "cact-eyes" looking back. FOX 10 asked Paradise Valley Police about the cameras, but they said they were not prepared to make a statement at this time.

One of Australia's smallest marsupials secures a big legal win on the NSW Central Coast | 07 May 2015 | After a ten-year battle, the Eastern Pygmy Possum has had a big legal win in the High Court of Australia. The possum's habitat is located in an industrial zone in Somersby, where a developer had been fighting for a decade to build a waste resource recovery facility. Gosford Council rejected the initial development application, arguing that the proposed facility would have an irreversible impact on the local population of the pygmy possum, a threatened species. The pint-sized marsupial measures less than 20cm, including its tail, and weighs in at a mere 30 grams.

GOP contenders vow to bomb terrorists 'back to the 7th Century,' invoke Liam Neeson | 10 May 2015 | Declared and potential GOP presidential candidates competed Saturday to sound the toughest warning to Islamic terrorists -- with one vowing to bomb them "back to the 7th Century" and another invoking Liam Neeson's threat from the film, "Taken" -- in the latest forum underscoring how national security has returned as a dominant campaign theme. A roster of Republicans spoke at a summit in Greenville, S.C., the state which holds the first-in-the-South presidential primary. Former Pennsylvania Sen. [and Grade 'A' sociopath] Rick Santorum, who is weighing a presidential bid and plans to announce his decision soon, said: "Here's what we need to do. If these people want to bring back a 7th Century version of Islam, my suggestion is to load our bombers up and bomb them back to the 7th Century."

It was initially extinguished by a sprinkler system and on-site personnel, officials said. It then started up again, but has since been put out.

May 9, 2015 by legitgov

Syrian official: US 'supporting terrorism' with rebel training programme | 09 May 2015 | Syria's deputy foreign minister on Saturday criticised a new US programme to train 'moderate rebel fighters' in Jordan, saying it will only fuel terrorism and further complicate efforts to reach a political solution to the country's [CIA-fomented] long and brutal civil war. The remarks by Faisal Mekdad were published in his weekly column for the Lebanon-based Al-Binaa newspaper. Mekdad said Washington would be better off helping those who are fighting terrorism, instead of cooperating with what he said were terrorists. "In doing so, the United States is supporting terrorism [as always], and is complicating conditions for a political solution in Syria," he wrote.

Attorney: Spy chief had 'forgotten' about NSA program when he misled Congress | 08 May 2015 | Director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper wasn't lying when he wrongly told Congress in 2013 that the government does not "wittingly" collect information about millions of Americans, according to his top lawyer. He just forgot. "This was not an untruth or a falsehood. This was just a mistake on his part," Robert Litt, the general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said during a panel discussion hosted by the Advisory Committee on Transparency on Friday.

Court Rules NSA Bulk Data Collection Was Never Authorized by Congress

Court Rules NSA Bulk Data Collection Was Never Authorized by Congress | 07 May 2015 | As Americans wait for Congress to decide next month whether to renew the Patriot Act and the vast NSA metadata surveillance program it's made possible, a panel of three appellate judges has made the decision on its own: The Patriot Act, they've now ruled, was never written to authorize the sort of sweeping surveillance the NSA interpreted it to allow. The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled on Thursday that the bulk collection of Americans' phone metadata by the NSA wasn't in fact authorized by section 215 of the Patriot Act, as the intelligence community has argued since the program was first revealed in the leaks of Edward Snowden two years ago.

The change will impact military installations throughout Hampton Roads including all eleven local Naval commands, the Army's Fort Eustis and Fort Story, and, Langley Air Force Base. The uptick to threat level Bravo from Alpha came after FBI Director James Comey told reporters on Thursday that ISIS is attempting to recruit "hundreds, maybe thousands" of potential terrorists across the country.

Senior Tories retain top cabinet roles as David Cameron seeks continuity | 08 May 2015 | David Cameron has made no changes to the most powerful positions in his cabinet in a defiant start to building the first majority Tory government in 18 years. Hours after his party shocked pollsters and commentators with a 331-seat return to government, the prime minister called in a line-up of familiar big-hitters to No 10. George Osborne and Theresa May, both tipped by Cameron himself as potential future leaders of the Conservative party, will retain their posts as chancellor and home secretary respectively. May has overseen some of the most high-profile and controversial reforms of the past five years, including the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act and Immigration Act.

North Korea says test-fires submarine-launch ballistic missile: KCNA | 08 May 2015 | North Korea said on Saturday it has successfully conducted an underwater test-fire of a submarine-launched ballistic missile, which, if true, would indicate progress in the secretive state's pursuit of building missile-equipped submarines.

What's more, she is also suspected of being linked to an attack on a traffic police post in Bykovnya two days beforehand, and it is also claimed she participated in bloody attacks [war crimes] on the Odessa House of Trade Unions in May last year in which 46 perished and 200 were injured.

May 8, 2015 by legitgov

Heads up! A big fat false flag is likely on the way, because the US government wants the Patriot Act renewed: Pentagon put on elevated alert level amid recent ISIS warnings | 08 May 2015 | The Pentagon has raised its alert level to its highest since the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in the face of mounting threats from ISIS [I-CIA-SIS] sympathizers on American soil. The move, which officials said is not based on a specific threat, was "informed by recent events," a spokesman for U.S. Northern Command told Fox News. The level, known as "Bravo," is the third of five levels of alert and means increased security at military posts across the country. The heightened alert means additional security measures can be taken including stricter inspections of vehicles and IDs on military posts across the country.

'It's Gone' - Snowpack Crucial for West's Water Melts Early | 08 May 2015 | The snowpack that is crucial for the western U.S. supplies of water for farming, drinking and recreation has melted early, spelling further drought problems for California. "Across most of the West, snowpack isn't just low - it's gone," Hydrologist David Garen of the United States Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) said. "With some exceptions, this year's snowmelt streamflow has already occurred." After months of unusually warm temperatures, the snowpack at many off the USDA's stations in much of the western U.S. is at or near the lowest on record, Garen said in a statement from the USDA.

It's time to flush away the TPP

May 8, 2015 by legitgov

It's time to flush away the TPP | 07 May 2015 | The TPP has little to do with trade. Of 29 draft chapters, only five deal with traditional trade issues...Much of the pact focuses instead on outsized "investor rights." The TPP [Trans-Pacific Partnership] would grant foreign corporations extraordinary new powers to challenge the laws we rely on for a clean environment, essential services and healthy communities. Foreign corporations would be empowered to bypass domestic courts and directly "sue" the U.S. government before an extrajudicial tribunal of private corporate lawyers sitting outside any domestic legal system and not accountable to any electorate, system of legal precedent or meaningful conflict-of-interest rules.

Senate approves bill on reviewing a proposed nuclear deal with Iran | 07 May 2015 | The Senate gave overwhelming approval Thursday to legislation that would establish a congressional review for a proposed nuclear deal with Iran, as Republican leaders set aside efforts from their own rank and file to amend the carefully crafted bipartisan compromise. On a 98-to-1 vote, the Senate lent a bipartisan boost to the measure -- which the House is likely to approve next week -- that would allow for a 30-day review of any final deal with Iran, giving what supporters said is a congressional voice to the process as President Obama finishes negotiations with the Islamic republic.

Cameron poised to return to power, Labour routed in Scotland | 07 May 2015 | Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives are set to govern Britain for another five years but fall just short of an outright majority, an exit poll showed, a result likely to trigger an in-out EU membership referendum. The poll forecast the Conservatives would win 316 of 650 seats in the lower house of parliament and the main opposition Labour Party 239. If accurate, that would be centre-left Labour's worst result in almost three decades and it faced being wiped out in its former Scottish stronghold.

May 8, 2015 by legitgov

Judges to Review 3,000 Arrests After Racist and Anti-Gay San Francisco Police Texts | 07 May 2015 | Three retired judges will review around 3,000 arrests connected to 14 San Francisco Police Department officers who are under investigation for allegedly sending racist and anti-gay text messages, the city's top prosecutor announced Thursday.

At least 14 cops are currently under investigation, the district attorney's office said.
