Strongest earthquake ever recorded in Oklahoma felt in multiple states Saturday morning, blamed on fracking By Carolly Kasenumi/Don Crothers | 03 Sept 2016 | Reports have just surfaced of a 5.6 magnitude earthquake which struck approximately 55 miles northwest of Tulsa.

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

University of Nebraska Lincoln introduces new 'non-negotiable respect' policy which bans insulting groups, individuals or ideologies --Chancellor of University of Nebraska Lincoln has started 'respect' policy | 02 Sept 2016 | The University of Nebraska Lincoln's new chancellor Ronnie Green has instituted a new, non-negotiable respect policy at the school. During a speech given at the new student convocation last month, Green made it clear that 'actions of hate and disrespect' would not be tolerated. However, the policy on what constitutes 'hate' and 'disrespect' has not been made clear. [OMG. Is Marxism an 'insulting' ideology? Are those who question the events of 9/11 'disrespectful?' If I believe that Sandy Hoax was a DHS drill-gone-live, am I exuding 'hate?' If it takes a second American Revolution to rid us of this insanity, count me in! --LRP. Marxism by definition does not respect bourgeois ideologies or politics, let alone for the most part, identity politics. Likewise, a principled Marxist stance would be outlawed on this campus of surveillance, coercion and control. Major essay on all of this and more, forthcoming. -- MDR.]

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Hermine is a potential 'monster' Labor Day weekend storm threat for East Coast | 03 Sept 2016 | After slamming Florida, deadly Hurricane Hermine weakened to a tropical storm Friday but will still focus its fury on the East Coast through the Labor Day weekend. Some forecasts are showing Hermine (or its remnants) exploding into a monster, hurricane-like storm just off the Delaware and New Jersey coast late Sunday and into Monday, potentially just sitting there and hammering the coast for days. In the worst-case scenario, it could bring levels of destruction to portions of the coast approaching that of Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

Marine, Navy officials in Afghanistan were aware of allegations of child rape by Afghan police chief, but he was allowed to keep his job anyway - lawsuit

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Marine, Navy officials in Afghanistan were aware of allegations of child rape by Afghan police chief, but he was allowed to keep his job anyway - lawsuit | 01 Sept 2016 | Last fall, the Navy Department had a controversial disciplinary case before it: Maj. Jason C. Brezler had been asked by Marine colleagues to submit all the information he had about an influential Afghan police chief suspected of abusing raping children. Brezler sent a classified document in response over an unclassified Yahoo email server, and he self-reported the mistake soon after. But the Marine Corps recommended that he be discharged for mishandling classified material. The Navy Department, which oversees the Marine Corps, had the ability to uphold or overturn the decision. However, rather than just looking at the merits of the case, Navy officials also assessed that holding new hearings on the case would renew attention on the scandal surrounding child sex abuse in Afghanistan, according to military documents newly disclosed in federal court.

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

US Navy covered up Afghan child rape problem to punish Marine - documents | 02 Sept 2016 | US Navy lawyers have advised against hearing a Marine's appeal on the premise that it would grant attention to an Afghan sex slave scandal. The officer sent a classified memo via his own email to warn fellow Marines of danger, shortly before three were killed. In the summer of 2012, Captain Brian Donlon reached out to a fellow Marine Corps officer – Major Jason Brezler, then in the USMC Reserves – to ask about Sarwar Jan, a police chief in Afghanistan's Helmand province with a reputation for corruption and keeping boys as sex slaves.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation released a summary of the July 2 interview it conducted with the Democratic presidential candidate, as well as other details of its investigation into her use of a private email server while heading the State Department.

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Melania Trump sues Daily Mail and US blogger in £113 million libel case over past sex work claims | 02 Sept 2016 | Melania Trump has filed a $150 million (£113 million) lawsuit against the Daily Mail and a US blogger, saying they published false claims about her past. A Daily Mail story last month cited a Slovenian magazine's report that a modelling agency Ms Trump worked with in New York in the 1990s also served as an escort business, linking wealthy clients with women for sexual services. Late on Thursday, the Daily Mail retracted the story in a posting on its website and in the newspaper. In a statement, Mr Harder said she was suing the British newspaper and a US blogger, Webster Tarpley, over stories about her past she believes were "tremendously damaging".

Gag me with a chainsaw: Duke University creates a 'safe space' room for 'marginalized' students 'to heal' | 01 Sept 2016 | Students returning to Duke University this year will see a new addition to campus: a 'safe space' room. Student newspaper The Duke Chronicle reports that an old faculty office was turned into the safe space inside the Sanford School of Public Policy. School spokesman Karen Kemp confirmed the new room but would not go into any more detail about it. 'It's the first day of classes, and the professors who lead the school's diversity and inclusion committee aren't available to chat further about this,' Kemp told The Fix. [Help! I need a safe space to take refuge from the safe spaces!]

Hurricane Hermine slams Florida, leaving thousands without power

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Hermine pounds Florida, then churns north into Carolinas | 03 Sept 2016 | Hurricane Hermine wreaked havoc across Florida on Friday, causing widespread power outages and flooding before diminishing into a tropical storm and plowing up the Atlantic Coast into the Carolinas with a still-potent mix of high winds and heavy rains. The first hurricane to make landfall in Florida in 11 years, Hermine swept ashore early on Friday near the Gulf shore town of St. Marks, 20 miles (30 km) south of the capital of Tallahassee, packing winds of 80 mph (130 kph) and churning up a devastating storm surge in coastal areas. Torrential downpours and high surf left parts of some communities under water early Friday, with mandatory evacuations ordered in parts of five northwestern Florida counties.

Donald Trump in SW Ohio: 'America first,' focus on populism

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Donald Trump in SW Ohio: 'America first,' focus on populism | 01 Sept 2016 | Donald Trump promised to put "America first," refocusing on populist feelings that have fueled his campaign, and largely avoided his more controversial positions in a double-shot campaign stop in Southwest Ohio Thursday. In a midday rally in Wilmington, Trump advocated for "bold" changes to the country's immigration system, but avoided details of his stances on deporting people who are in the U.S. illegally. Instead, he spoke of building a wall on the Mexican border and of treating immigrants with "compassion." It's not that Trump has changed course on immigration: He generally doubled down on his hard-line immigration stances in a Wednesday night speech in Arizona.

September 1, 2016 by legitgov

Trump is AHEAD in national poll as Clinton slumps to 39 per cent before crucial Labor Day watershed | 01 Sept 2016 | Donald Trump has overtaken Hillary Clinton for the first time since mid-July, according to a weekly Rasmussen poll published on Thursday. Trump is polling at 40 per cent, a point ahead of Clinton at 39. It's a striking reversal of fortunes for the two candidates compared to last week, when Clinton led Trump 42 to 38. The result comes as Labor Day approaches. Following the holiday presidential campaigns ratchet up several notches, so polls then are seen as giving whoever is ahead at that point a crucial psychological advantage.

Chemotherapy warning: Cancer drugs are killing up to 50 per cent of patients in some UK hospitals --Research published in The Lancet Oncology | 31 Aug 2016 | Patients should be warned about the dangers of chemotherapy after research showed that cancer drugs are killing up to 50 per cent of patients in some UK hospitals. For the first time researchers looked at the numbers of cancer patients who died within 30 days of starting chemotherapy, which indicates that the medication is the cause of death, rather than the cancer. The study by Public Health England and Cancer Research UK found that across England around 8.4 per cent of patients with lung cancer, and 2.4 per cent of breast cancer patients died within a month. But in some hospitals the figure was far higher.

U.S. Supreme Court refuses to restore NC voter ID, reduce early voting days | 31 Aug 2016 | The U.S. Supreme Court refused Wednesday to reinstate North Carolina's voter identification requirement and keep just 10 days of early in-person voting. The court rejected a request by Gov. Pat McCrory and other state officials to delay a lower court ruling that found the state law was tainted by racial discrimination. The decision - a victory for voting rights groups and President Barack Obama's Justice Department - means voters won't have to show one of several qualifying photo IDs when casting ballots in the presidential battleground state. Early voting also reverts to 17 days, to begin Oct. 20.

Trump: 'There will be no amnesty' | 31 Aug 2016 | Donald Trump on Wednesday stated clearly there would be "no amnesty" for undocumented immigrants living in the US, putting to rest questions about whether he was softening his stance on the issue that's driven much of his campaign.

To return home and apply for re-entry like everybody else under the rules of the new legal immigration system that I have outlined today," the Republican presidential nominee said. He added: "There will be no amnesty."

September 1, 2016 by legitgov

Trump Recommits to Mass Deportation in Fiery Immigration Speech | 31 Aug 2016 | Donald Trump's self-declared "softening" on immigration is gone, replaced by a recommitment to a hardline policy that could best be described as mass deportation. Shouting his remarks to a fired-up crowd in Arizona, which has been home to some of the most contentious immigration policy fights of the last decade, Trump pledged a maximal approach that would target ever undocumented immigrant in the country without mercy. "There will be no amnesty," Trump said. "Our message to the world will be this: You cannot obtain legal status or become a citizen of the United States by illegally entering our country."

Donald Trump Calls Mexican President 'a Friend' | 31 Aug 2016 | Donald J. Trump met in Mexico on Wednesday with President Enrique Peña Nieto. In a subdued joint appearance before the press in Mexico City, the two men described the meeting as warm, despite significant disagreements on issues of trade and immigration. Mr. Trump was expected to then travel to Arizona, where he was to detail his immigration policies in a speech. Here are some highlights from the day: Mr. Trump reached out to the Mexican president and people. Mr. Trump, first reading slowly from a statement and then speaking more freely in response to a question, said he now considered Mr. Peña Nieto a friend and heaped praise on Americans of Mexican descent.

More George W. Bush officials are backing Hillary Clinton | 31 Aug 2016 | Hillary Clinton cast Donald Trump as unqualified for the role of commander in chief in a speech to a veterans group on Wednesday meant to draw a contrast in leadership with the Republican presidential nominee, who is traveling abroad. Speaking at the American Legion's national convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, described Trump as erratic, dangerous and a threat to U.S. security...Earlier in the day, the Clinton campaign rolled out its latest Republican endorsement, this one from James Clad, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for President [sic] George W.

Heads up! Coup 2016 underway: Homeland eyes special declaration to take charge of elections | 30 Aug 2016 | Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks [likely an inside job, perpetrated by and for the same corporations who own and operate the electronic 'voting' machines] on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a "critical infrastructure," giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid. The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials. "We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

As Obamacare choices dwindle, feds face consumer, political backlash | 29 Aug 2016 | Up to 2.1 million people will likely have to change plans for 2017 due to insurers leaving states' Affordable Care Act marketplaces, up from more than 1.2 million who had to find new insurers last year...The new estimates, from data expert Charles Gaba of ACASignups.net, come as another analysis shows five states are expected to have just one company selling insurance on the 2017 Obamacare exchanges.

UK defense contractor BAE selling surveillance gear to Emirates - report | 27 Aug 2016 | The Danish subsidiary of a British defense contractor is selling surveillance gear to the United Arab Emirates, according to documents obtained by a Danish newspaper. The deal has sparked fears that the system will be used to repress political opponents. The papers from the Danish Business Authority show that it issued an export permit last month to BAE Systems Applied Intelligence A/S, which gives the company the right to sell an "IP monitoring and data analysis system relating to national security and the investigation of serious crimes" to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dagbladet Information reported. The documents also show that BAE Systems already delivered such a system to the regime sometime before December 31, 2014, and that the new license is for "extension service, support, testing, and maintenance."
