August 7, 2015 by legitgov

Republican presidential debate: 17 compete for attention, with Trump at the center | 06 Aug 2015 | The leading Republican presidential candidates used their first face-to-face encounter to accuse celebrity candidate Donald Trump -- and one another -- of diverging from conservative principles as they tried to reverse the surprising dominance of the billionaire and gain a foothold in the crowded race. Trump made news Thursday before even uttering a single word. When a moderator asked candidates whether they would pledge to support whoever ultimately won the party's nomination for president, as well as rule out an independent bid, Trump raised his hand to indicate he wouldn't.

His declaration in opposition is the first from the Senate Democratic caucus...The move is a challenge to US President Barack Obama, who is aggressively advocating for the agreement. His colleague from New York, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, announced her intentions to vote in favor of the deal earlier on Thursday.

Christie, Paul have epic clash at debate

August 7, 2015 by legitgov

Christie, Paul have epic clash at debate | 06 Aug 2015 | New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got into a verbal brawl over government surveillance with Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) on Thursday evening during the first Republican presidential debate of the 2016 cycle. The two began yelling over each other about the National Security Agency (NSA), with Paul fiercely criticizing Christie's call for the government to increase the powers of U.S. intelligence agencies. "I want to collect more records from terrorists but less records from innocent Americans," said Paul, the Senate's most prominent libertarian. That's a "completely ridiculously answer," responded Christie, a former U.S. attorney who pursued cases using powers under the Patriot Act. "How are you supposed to know?" "You support the Fourth Amendment!" Paul yelled in response. "Get a warrant! Get a judge to sign a warrant!" [*Exactly.*]

To press for Iran nuclear deal, Obama invokes Iraq war

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

To press for Iran nuclear deal, Obama invokes Iraq war | 05 Aug 2015 | President Obama lashed out at critics of the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday, saying many of those who backed the U.S. invasion of Iraq now want to reject the Iran accord and put the Middle East on the path toward another war. Obama also said that if Congress rejects the deal, it will undermine America's standing in global diplomacy, leaving the United States isolated and putting Israel in even greater peril. While calling the nuclear accord with Iran "the strongest nonproliferation agreement ever negotiated," Obama also seemed to turn the vote on the deal into a referendum on the U.S. invasion of Iraq a dozen years ago, a decision he portrayed as the product of a "mind-set characterized by a preference for military action over diplomacy."

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

Police: Suspect in Tennessee theater attack had been committed 4 times, had pellet gun, axe | 05 Aug 2015 | A man with "significant" psychological issues who was armed with a hatchet and pellet gun unleashed a volley of pepper spray at audience members inside a movie theater Wednesday before being fired at by a police officer and shot dead by a SWAT team as he tried to escape out a back door, police said. The attacker, identified as Vincente David Montano, 29, of Nashville, was carrying two backpacks, one of which hung from his chest, and he wore a surgical mask, possibly to protect himself from the pepper spray he unleashed in large amounts during the showing of "Mad Max: Fury Road," Metro Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron said. One of Montano's two backpacks was detonated and then found to contain a fake bomb, Aaron said. He said investigators were going through a second backpack that Montano left at the theater.

The Point of No Return: Global Warming Nightmares Are Already Here

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

The Point of No Return: Global Warming Nightmares Are Already Here --The worst predicted impacts of climate change global warming are starting to happen -- and much faster than climate scientists expected | 05 Aug 2015 | ...London reached 98 degrees Fahrenheit during the hottest July day ever recorded in the U.K.; The Guardian briefly had to pause its live blog of the heat wave because its computer servers overheated...On July 20th, James Hansen, the former NASA climatologist who brought climate change to the public's attention in the summer of 1988, issued a bombshell: He and a team of climate scientists had identified a newly important feedback mechanism off the coast of Antarctica that suggests mean sea levels could rise 10 times faster than previously predicted: 10 feet by 2065. The authors included this chilling warning: If emissions aren't cut, "We conclude that multi-meter sea-level rise would become practically unavoidable. Social disruption and economic consequences of such large sea-level rise could be devastating. It is not difficult to imagine that conflicts arising from forced migrations and economic collapse might make the planet ungovernable, threatening the fabric of civilization."

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

Obama climate plan derided by Republicans, hailed by green groups | 03 Aug 2015 | US President Barack Obama's plan to cut carbon emissions from US power plants has been hailed as visionary by the UN, EU and environmental groups. Republicans have vowed to do whatever it takes to halt the measures. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon lauded Obama's Clean Power Plan, calling it an example of "visionary leadership necessary to reduce emissions and to tackle climate change." Obama's plan, unveiled on Monday, marked the first time power stations in the US have been targeted by mandatory regulations on carbon dioxide emissions. The measures force power plant owners to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 32 percent by 2030, compared to 2005 levels.

US fossil fuel lobby outspent green groups 22 times to blunt Obama climate plan

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

US fossil fuel lobby outspent green groups 22 times to blunt Obama climate plan | 06 Aug 2015 | There could be half a billion reasons for the concessions US President Barack Obama's 'clean-power plan' made to a defiant energy industry. Electric utilities, oil companies and their allies spent $US502 million ($683 million) on lobbying in the year since the Environmental Protection Agency proposed new regulations on carbon emissions from power plants, according to disclosures reviewed by Bloomberg. That's 22 times more than renewable energy companies and environmentalists spent...The biggest spenders against the plan were the US Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and Caterpillar.

Appellate Panel Says Texas ID Law Broke U.S. Voting Rights Act

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

Appellate Panel Says Texas ID Law Broke U.S. Voting Rights Act | 05 Aug 2015 | A federal appeals panel ruled Wednesday that a strict voter identification law in Texas discriminated against black and Hispanic voters and violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965 -- a decision that election experts called an important step toward defining the future reach of the landmark law. The state of federal voting protections has been uncertain since 2013, when the Supreme Court blocked the act's most potent enforcement tool, a requirement that numerous states, including Texas, with histories of discrimination receive federal clearance before changing election rules. The Texas ID case -- along with another in Texas challenging its redistricting plans and a case in North Carolina over broader changes in election rules -- has been closely watched in legal circles to see how courts will interpret the remaining provisions of the landmark federal law.

August 5, 2015 by legitgov

Israel approves new homes in settlement after demolishing two buildings | 06 Aug 2015 | Israel gave final approval on Wednesday for plans to build 300 new homes in a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank, announcing the move as it carried out a court demolition order against two vacant apartment blocks in the same enclave. Dozens of Jewish settlers have gathered over the past several days at Beit El settlement to protest against the demolition. Israel's Supreme Court ruled the two partially built blocks had been constructed illegally on Palestinian-owned land...Most countries consider the settlements that Israel has built in occupied land as illegal.

Hatchet-wielding gunman attacks Tennessee movie theater before being killed by police | 05 Aug 2015 | A man armed with a gun and a hatchet attacked a movie theater in the Nashville area on Wednesday afternoon before he was shot and killed by a SWAT team after exchanging fire with an officer, authorities said. One man was injured by the hatchet. That man and two other people also needed treatment after being "blasted with pepper spray" by the attacker, said Don Aaron, a Nashville police spokesman...Police were called to the scene just before 1:15 p.m. local time for reports of "an active shooter" inside the Carmike Hickory 8 movie theater in Antioch, southeast of downtown Nashville, Aaron said. Less than an hour later, police reported that the "active shooter situation" was over and the suspected gunman was dead.

August 5, 2015 by legitgov

Appeals court strikes down 'discriminatory' Texas voter ID law | 05 Aug 2015 | A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday struck down a Texas voter ID law, saying it violated the U.S. Voting Rights Act through its "discriminatory effects." The decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit was pertaining to one of a series of laws enacted in Republican-governed states requiring voters to show certain forms of identification before being allowed to vote. "We affirm the district court's finding that SB 14 (Texas Senate Bill 14) violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act through its discriminatory effect," a three-judge panel from the New Orleans-based court said.

August 5, 2015 by legitgov

FBI looking into the security of Hillary Clinton's private e-mail setup | 04 Aug 2015 | The FBI has begun looking into the security of Hillary Rodham Clinton's private e-mail setup, contacting in the past week a Denver-based technology firm that helped manage the unusual system, according to two government officials. Also last week, the FBI contacted Clinton's lawyer, David Ken­dall, with questions about the security of a thumb drive in his possession that contains copies of work e-mails Clinton sent during her time as secretary of state. The FBI's interest in Clinton's e-mail system comes after the intelligence community's inspector general referred the issue to the Justice Department in July. Intelligence officials expressed concern that some sensitive information was not in the government's possession and could be "compromised." The referral did not accuse Clinton of any wrongdoing, and the two officials said Tuesday that the FBI is not targeting her.

Spokane sues Monsanto over Spokane River contamination | 05 Aug 2015 | The city of Spokane is suing the international agrochemical giant Monsanto, which it blames for pollution in the Spokane River. The Spokesman-Review reports that the lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Spokane, alleges that the company [eco-terrorists] sold chemicals for decades that it knew were a danger to people and the environment...Marlene Feist, the city's utilities spokeswoman, called the suit "long-term litigation," and noted that the city will spend $300 million in the coming years to keep polychlorinated biphenyls and other pollutants from entering the river. Monsanto was the sole producer of PCBs between 1935 and 1979, when Congress banned most of them.
