Psychologists and C.I.A. Torture

July 13, 2015 by legitgov

Psychologists and C.I.A. Torture | 10 July 2015 | A 542-page report concludes that prominent psychologists worked closely with the C.I.A. to blunt dissent inside the agency over an interrogation program that is now known to have included torture. It also finds that officials at the American Psychological Association colluded with the Pentagon to make sure that the association's ethics policies did not hinder the ability of psychologists to be involved in the interrogation program.

Hero conservation officer suspended for refusing to kill two orphaned bear cubs | 07 July 2015 | B.C. conservation officer Bryce Casavant has been suspended without pay for refusing to kill two black bear cubs near Port Hardy after their mother was killed for repeatedly raiding a freezer full of meat and salmon [because she was hungry]. Despite an [*insane*] order to kill the cubs too, Casavant took them to a veterinary hospital. They are now at a recovery centre run by the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association in Errington, which like Port Hardy is on Vancouver Island. Robin Campbell, the recovery centre's manager, said the conservation officer did the right thing as the cubs are not habituated to humans and can be reintroduced to the wild.

'Right Sector on combat alert': Ukraine Neo-Nazis refuse to lay down arms after shootout | 12 July 2015 | [US-backed] Ukrainian Right Sector militants, blocked in on the outskirts of Mukachevo after deadly clashes with police, are refusing to lay down their arms without their leader's orders. Civilians in the area have been evacuated, as negotiations so far have failed. SWAT police and special units of the National Guard, as well as Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) agents have secured the area and blockaded members of Ukraine's ultra-nationalist Right Sector group on the outskirts of Mukachevo, which lies a stone's throw away from Hungarian and Slovakian border.

July 12, 2015 by legitgov

Tunisia: 1,000 arrests and 15,000 prevented from leaving in counter-terrorism operations | 10 July 2015 | Tunisia authorities have arrested 1,000 people and banned a further 15,000 from leaving the country in the wake of two terror attacks in the country. Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid said the suspects were detained as part of the counter-terrorism operation in the wake of the shooting at the Bardo museum in March, which left 22 people dead, and the recent Sousse beach shooting that killed 38 people, including 30 Brits. The announcement arrived a week after a state of emergency was declared in Tunisia following the Sousse shooting and after the British Foreign Office urged all remaining Brits to leave Tunisia immediately as intelligence suggests a further terrorist attack is "highly likely".

July 12, 2015 by legitgov

Media not allowed to observe controversial Special Operations exercise Jade Helm 15 | 08 July 2015 | Jade Helm 15, the controversial Special Operations exercise that spawned a wave of conspiracy theories about a government takeover, will open next week without any media allowed to observe it, a military spokesman said.

The exercise is scheduled for July 15 through September 15 and is expected to include more than 1,200 troops. For months, some protesters people with an IQ over 80 have said Jade Helm is setting the stage for future martial law.

Texans organize 'Operation Counter Jade Helm' to keep an eye on the federal troops | 11 July 2015 | When the troops land in Texas for Operation Jade Helm next week, someone will be waiting for them. Hundreds of people have organized a "Counter Jade Helm" surveillance operation across the Southwestern states and in an effort to keep an eye on the contentious military drill that's sparked many suspicious of Uncle Sam's intentions. Three groups of volunteers, about 20 folks in total, hope to monitor the SEALs, Green Berets and Air Force Special Ops in Bastrop, Big Spring and Junction when Jade Helm kicks off on July 15. With media prohibited at the drills, the volunteers could be a main source of information for the highly-anticipate seven-state exercise.

FBI Director Says Background Check System Failed, Allowing Alleged SC Shooter to Purchase Gun

July 12, 2015 by legitgov

FBI Director Says Background Check System Failed, Allowing Alleged SC Shooter to Purchase Gun | 10 July 2015 | The FBI says its background-check system failed, mistakenly allowing the man who allegedly opened fire inside a South Carolina church last month to purchase the gun he used in the rampage. FBI Director James Comey said 21-year-old Dylann Roof of Lexington, South Carolina, "should not have been allowed" to buy the weapon that ultimately killed nine people, including the pastor of the historic Emanuel AME church. Through a database known as the National Instant Criminal Background Check System -- or "NICS" -- the FBI performs background checks for those looking to buy weapons from dealers in 30 states, including South Carolina. If FBI examiners don't respond within three business days, federal law allows the dealers to decide themselves whether to proceed with the sale.

US Army considering hollow point bullets for pistols; ammunition use would violate international law --'Expanding' bullets were banned under the 1899 Hague Convention. | 10 July 2015 | In a dramatic shift for the US military, the army is considering the use of bullets that can expand and break up when striking a target to make new pistols more lethal, raising concern that doing so would violate international law. According to the Army Times, the Pentagon recently reviewed the use of "special purpose ammunition" and determined the army could look into enabling its next-generation XM-17 pistol to use various kinds, including hollow point bullets. Currently, only ball ammunition is used in the army.

It details the social media behavior of the two men who the AFP believe posed potential security threats because of their knowledge of aviation and possible radicalization.

Petition Calls on Congress to Reveal the Secret 28 Pages for 9/11 Transparency

July 11, 2015 by legitgov

Petition Calls on Congress to Reveal the Secret 28 Pages for 9/11 Transparency | 10 July 2015 | On Jan. 6, 2015, Walter Jones (R-NC) and Steven Lynch (D-MA) introduced a resolution to the House of Representatives calling on President Obama to release the 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry on 9/11. The resolution is called H.RES. 14. Visibility of the 28 pages issue has risen yet again with the introduction of Senate Bill 1471 introduced by Rand Paul on June 2, 2015, as a parallel action to H.RES. 14...Furthermore, release of the pages will reveal that certain Saudi royals and charities known for funding extremist groups are being protected, regardless that they continue to jeopardize U.S. national security. In other words, funding of extremist groups is being protected while the American people are being told to fear another "9/11 type attack" -- a blatant contradiction. Sign petition here.

Up to 170,000 chickens set to be slaughtered after suspected bird flu outbreak

Up to 170,000 chickens set to be slaughtered after suspected bird flu outbreak | 10 July 2015 | (UK) Tens of thousands of chickens are being slaughtered on a poultry farm after a suspected bird flu outbreak. A control zone has also been set up 10km around a Lancashire farm to prevent any risk of the disease spreading but up to 170,000 laying hens are expected to be humanely culled [?] as a precautionary measure. Scientists have yet to discover what strain of flu is involved. Some strains of avian influenza, particularly the H5N1 form, are known to have jumped the species barrier and resulted in more than 300 human deaths worldwide.

US torture doctors could face charges after report alleges post-9/11 'collusion'

July 10, 2015 by legitgov

US torture doctors could face charges after report alleges post-9/11 'collusion' | 10 July 2015 | The largest association of psychologists in the United States is on the brink of a crisis, the Guardian has learned, as an independent review prepares to reveal that medical professionals lied and covered up their extensive involvement in post-9/11 torture. The revelation, puncturing years of denials, creates the potential for leadership firings, loss of licenses and even prosecutions. For more than a decade, the American Psychological Association (APA) has maintained that a strict code of ethics prohibits its more than 130,000 members to aid in the torture of detainees prisoners while simultaneously permitting involvement in military and intelligence interrogations. The group has rejected media reporting on psychologists' complicity in torture; suppressed internal dissent from anti-torture doctors; cleared members of wrongdoing; and portrayed itself as a consistent ally against abuse. Now, a voluminous independent review conducted by a former assistant US attorney, David Hoffman, is said to undermine the APA's denials in full -- and vindicate the dissenters.

Confederate flag comes down on South Carolina's statehouse grounds [Great! Now if we could only get rid of -- or even get the media to mention -- the slavery codified in Obama's secret TPP...] | 10 July 2015 | The Confederate flag on South Carolina's statehouse grounds came down during a Friday morning ceremony, ending its 54-year presence at the Capitol. Members from a South Carolina Highway Patrol honor guard approached the Confederate memorial, and as one turned a lever to lower the flag, the assembled large crowd burst into sustained applause and chanted "U.S.A.!" The flag will be placed in a museum. Cheers and hugs punctuated the morning.

NYSE glitch caused by software update, exchange says

NYSE glitch caused by software update, exchange says | 09 July 2015 | A computer malfunction that forced the New York Stock Exchange to suspend trading for more than three hours on Wednesday was caused by an update to part of the exchange's trading software before markets opened. The update threw off the entire system. The NYSE reopened at 3:10 p.m. ET the same day, after being halted shortly after 11:30 a.m. On Thursday, the exchange elaborated on that explanation, saying an update to the software the exchange uses to properly determine timestamps on trades was improperly rolled out.

Who really runs N.J. when Christie is away?

July 10, 2015 by legitgov

Who really runs N.J. when Christie is away? | 09 July 2015 | Gov. Chris Christie, who has been out of state nearly half of his second term in office, is expected to be away from New Jersey more than ever now that he's launched his presidential campaign. By early July, Christie had spent more time out of state this year than he's spent in it. When his latest trip to Allen & Company's annual financial conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, this week ends, the governor will have spent 100 of the last 192 days traveling out of state campaigning or laying the groundwork for his White House bid. [The defective 'Shift' button on my keyboard would do a better job running the state, so I think it's a 'plus' that Christie isn't there most of the time.]

July 10, 2015 by legitgov

To facilitate passage of TPP, U.S. upgrades Malaysia in annual human trafficking report - sources | 08 July 2015 | The United States is upgrading Malaysia from the lowest tier on its list of worst human trafficking centers, U.S. sources said on Wednesday, a move that could smooth the way for an ambitious U.S.-led free-trade deal with the Southeast Asian nation and 11 other countries. The upgrade to so-called "Tier 2 Watch List" status removes a potential barrier to President Barack Obama's signature global trade corporate takeover deal. A provision in a related trade bill passed by Congress last month barred from fast-tracked trade deals Malaysia and other countries that earn the worst U.S. human trafficking ranking in the eyes of the U.S. State Department.

July 10, 2015 by legitgov

President Obama Accepts Slavery in Order to Win TPP Trade Deal | 09 July 2015 | So that U.S. President Barack Obama can end a roadblock and win the agreement of other nations for his proposed Trans Pacific Partnership, he has decided to remove one of the nations, Malaysia, from the U.S. State Department's official list of countries that allow slavery. Malaysia, which recently found over a hundred graves of discarded slaves, has been on the U.S. State Department's "Tier 3" list of slave nations...but, unlike those other countries, Obama wants Malaysia to be included in his Trans Pacific Partnership; so, he has decided to remove Malaysia from that official list. This was first reported by Reuters on July 8th, under the headline "Exclusive: U.S. Upgrades Malaysia in Annual Human Trafficking Report."

US: More Than 21 Million Affected by Government Data Breach | 09 July 2015 | Hackers stole Social Security numbers, health histories and other highly sensitive data from more than 21 million people, the Obama administration said Thursday, acknowledging that the breach of U.S. government computer systems was far more severe than previously disclosed. The scope of the data breach -- believed to be the biggest in U.S. history -- has grown dramatically since the government first disclosed earlier this year that hackers had gotten into the Office of Personnel Management's personnel database and stolen records for about 4.2 million people. Since then, the Obama administration has acknowledged a second, related breach of the systems housing private data that individuals submit during background investigations to obtain security clearances.

The plots were linked to the Islamic State terror group who wanted to carry out attacks which would have caused mayhem across the country. But they were thwarted by federal agents who have ramped up security efforts in recent months to arrest Islamic State sympathizers across the country.

'Serious' flaw found in French nuclear reactor | 09 July 2015 | A weakness has been discovered in a French nuclear reactor of the type set to be built at Hinkley in the UK. France's nuclear safety regulator told the BBC the flaw in the steel housing the reactor core at the nuclear plant being built in Normandy is "serious". He added that unless he was satisfied with the plans to put it right, he could stop the project. The troubled European Pressurised Reactor (EPR) under construction in France is one of the standard bearers for the next generation of nuclear power plants.

South Carolina House approves bill removing Confederate flag | 09 July 2015 | The South Carolina House has approved taking down the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds, a stunning reversal in a state that was the first to leave the Union in 1860 and raised the flag again at its Statehouse more than 50 years ago to protest the civil rights movement. The House approved the Senate bill 93-27, and still has one more vote that appeared to be perfunctory since they had met two-thirds approval. The bill would then go to Republican Gov. Nikki Haley, who supports it.

Jeb Bush: People Need to Work Longer Hours | 08 July 2015 | Today, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush...uttered a phrase that may not go over too well with the constituency he seeks to reach. During an interview that was live-streamed on the app Periscope, Bush told New Hampshire's The Union Leader that to grow the economy, "people should work longer hours." Already the Democratic National Committee has pounced, releasing a statement that calls his remarks "easily one of the most out-of-touch comments we've heard so far this cycle," adding that Bush would not fight for the middle class as president.
