'Catastrophe waiting to happen': Sanders wants to close nuclear plant 25 miles from NYC

April 4, 2016 by legitgov

'Catastrophe waiting to happen': Sanders wants to close nuclear plant 25 miles from NYC | 04 April 2016 | The continued operation of the "decaying" 40-year-old Indian Point nuclear power plant up the Hudson River from New York City "makes no sense," said Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders two weeks before the New York State presidential primary. The two, 1970s-era Indian Point nuclear reactors, situated about 25 miles (40 km) north of New York City and within 50 miles of 20 million residents, have come under increased scrutiny of late as the facility has experienced nine occurrences of technical problems in the past year or so. A tritium water leak in recent months sparked new concerns over the plant; US Senator Bernie Sanders has now said that the plant should be closed. Hillary Clinton, Sanders's opponent for the Democratic presidential nomination...[has a] home in Chappaqua, New York, which is within 20 miles of Indian Point. Clinton, though, has never called for the plant's shutdown.

April 4, 2016 by legitgov

Your tax dollars at work: In Syria, Militias Armed by the Pentagon Fight Those Armed by the CIA | 28 March 2016 | Syrian militias armed by different parts of the U.S. war machine have begun to fight each other on the plains between the besieged city of Aleppo and the Turkish border, highlighting how little control U.S. intelligence officers and military planners have over the groups they have financed and trained in the bitter five-year-old [US-engineered] civil war. The fighting has intensified over the last two months, as CIA-armed units and Pentagon-armed ones have repeatedly shot at each other while maneuvering through contested territory on the northern outskirts of Aleppo, U.S. officials and rebel leaders have confirmed. In mid-February, a CIA-armed militia called Fursan al Haq, or Knights of Righteousness, was run out of the town of Marea, about 20 miles north of Aleppo, by Pentagon-backed Syrian Democratic Forces moving in from Kurdish-controlled areas to the east.

He said a rule change that occurred Saturday morning allowed for the meeting to be closed to the public. "Trust me, there will be a war," he said of the delegate list to be discussed in the meeting.

Brown plans to sign | 31 March 2016 | In votes that drew cheers from low-wage workers inside and outside the state Capitol on Thursday, Democrats swiftly pushed a bill through the Legislature to raise the state minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022. Almost immediately, Gov. Jerry Brown announced he would sign it at a ceremony Monday in Los Angeles. The bill, SB3 by Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, drew opposition from Republicans - not one of whom voted for it in the Senate or Assembly - and business-group leaders who said it will force job cuts and higher prices for consumers.

No joke: 500k food stamp recipients to lose benefits on April 1

No joke: 500k food stamp recipients to lose benefits on April 1 | 31 March 2016 | More than 500,000 Americans receiving food stamp benefits will no longer qualify for them beginning on April 1. This is a result of government requirements linking the assistance to an individual's ability to find a job and work. In order to keep their access to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) for more than three months, able-bodied adults ages 18-49 who don't have children or other dependents must work, volunteer, or enroll in a job-training program for 20 hours a week or more...By the end of 2016, up to a million people around the nation could lose their benefits. [Obama signed off on this insanity or it wouldn't be law. This is the what happens what a corporatist dirt-bag lies and campaigns as a 'populist' and, with full backing by the corporate-run media, enacts only policies that benefit Wall Street. That's why Obama is toiling day and night, behind the scenes, to ensure his insane TPP is passed in a lame-duck session of Congress.]

D.C. Madam's Attorney Says Election Bombshell Already Online

D.C. Madam's Attorney Says Election Bombshell Already Online | 31 March 2016 | The colorful litigator who represented the late "D.C. madam" Deborah Palfrey and threatened this week to release call logs of his former client that he says are "very relevant" to the 2016 presidential election tells U.S. News those records already are digitized and posted online. Montgomery Blair Sibley says the records will become public if he fails to reset a 72-hour countdown clock, which could cut short his soft two-week ultimatum for federal courts to consider lifting a 2007 gag order that covers the records, lest he deem that order void. The countdown clock is a safeguard, Sibley says, that ensures that if he disappears the records will be published.

Militant interest in attacking nuclear sites stirs concern in Europe | 30 March 2016 | Meter-thick concrete walls and 1950s-style analog control rooms help protect nuclear plants from bomb attacks and computer hackers, but Islamist militants are turning their attention to the atomic industry's weak spots, security experts say. Concerns about nuclear terrorism rose after Belgian media reported that suicide bombers who killed 32 people in Brussels on March 22 originally looked into attacking a nuclear installation before police raids that netted a number of suspected associates forced them to switch targets..."The insider threat is one of the most difficult to deal with, as this hinges on the ability to screen employees and figure out the nature of their intentions," said Page Stoutland at the U.S.-based Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), citing recent reported incidents in Belgium.

'Zodiac' Ted Cruz jokes about running over Donald Trump with his car on 'Jimmy Kimmel' show | 31 March 2016 | Presidential candidate Donald Trump may be the one driving Republican rival Ted Cruz crazy, though he may want to stay clear of the Texas senator when he gets behind the wheel.

Heads up! Let's hope the dirt-bags don't 'go live,' as they did on 9/11: UK and US to simulate cyber-attack on nuclear plants to test resilience | 30 March 2016 | Britain and the US will stage a war-game later this year, simulating a cyber attack on a nuclear power plant, to test the readiness of the government and utility firms. As David Cameron prepares to fly to Washington to attend a nuclear security summit, convened by Barack Obama, government sources said the two countries plan to cooperate on exploring the resilience of nuclear infrastructure to a terrorist attack. Government sources said the exercise was not triggered by any credible intelligence about the threat of such an attack, but that it was" prudent planning," adding: "It gives us the ability to test these systems, and make sure that we learn any lessons."

Police will not be charged in Minneapolis death of black man | 30 March 2016 | Two Minneapolis police officers involved in the shooting death of a 24-year-old black man will not be charged, prosecutors said on Wednesday, because evidence showed Jamar Clark was not handcuffed and that he reached for an officer's gun. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told a news conference that Clark struggled with Officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze, who are white, was not handcuffed and at one point had his hand on a gun. Freeman made the decision not to charge the officers, bypassing use of a grand jury.

Superdelegates are ripping off voters, placing Clinton ahead of Sanders in states where he actually won more votes

March 30, 2016 by legitgov

Superdelegates are ripping off voters, placing Clinton ahead of Sanders in states where he actually won more votes | 29 March 2016 | After winning five-straight state primaries in relative blowout fashion, Bernie Sanders has cut significantly into Hillary Clinton's pledged delegate lead. According to the most recent totals, Clinton currently has 1,267 pledged delegates to Bernie's 1,037...What's disturbing, though, is that in spite of the actual closeness of the contest between them, members of the political establishment, called superdelegates, are going against the will of the voters in their own states to support Clinton over Sanders.
