Divided Court Strikes Total Limits on Campaign Contributions 02 Apr 2014 In another major blow to the regulation of money in elections, a sharply divided U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down federal limits on the total amounts individuals may contribute to candidates and political committees. "An aggregate limit on how many candidates and committees an individual may support through contributions is not a 'modest restraint' at all" on protected political speech, Chief Justice [sic] John Roberts Jr. wrote for the 5-4 conservative majority... However, Justice Stephen Breyer, reading portions of his dissent from the bench, warned, "If the court in Citizens United [v. FEC] opened a door [to more money in federal elections], today's decision may well open a floodgate."

Supreme Court strikes down specific campaign donation limits - now donors can pour MILLIONS into their favorite candidate's war chest

April 2, 2014 by legitgov

Supreme Court strikes down specific campaign donation limits - now donors can pour MILLIONS into their favorite candidate's war chest --U.S. 'Supreme' Court, in 5-4 decision, makes worse decision in since Bush v. Gore, which is how and why we're in this mess in the first place. --Comes years after controversial Citizen's United ruling that allowed corporations to spend unlimited amounts in campaigns, to put their favorite lackey in office 02 Apr 2014 The Supreme Court has struck down campaign donation limits that individual donors can make to candidates, political parties and political action committees in a landmark ruling handed down today. The justices [sic] ruled that Americans have a right to give the legal maximum to candidates for Congress and president, as well as to parties and PACs, without worrying that they will violate the law when they bump up against a limit on all contributions. The decision will allow the wealthiest contributors to pour millions of dollars into candidate and party coffers, although those contributions will be subject to disclosure under federal law. Justice Stephen Breyer, writing for the liberal dissenters, said that the court's conservatives had 'eviscerated our nation's campaign finance laws' through Wednesday's ruling and 2010 decision in Citizens United that lifted limits on independent spending by corporations and labor unions. 'If the court in Citizens United opened a door, today's decision we fear will open a floodgate,' Breyer said in comments from the bench. [Start reading.]

13 GM Traffic Deaths Are Tied to a 57-Cent Part

April 2, 2014 by legitgov

Capitalism *is* the problem: 13 GM Traffic Deaths Are Tied to a 57-Cent Part 01 Apr 2014 The fix for a faulty ignition switch linked to 13 traffic deaths would have cost just 57 cents, members of Congress said Tuesday as they demanded answers from General Motors' new CEO on why the automaker took 10 years to recall cars with the defect. At a hearing on Capitol Hill before a House subcommittee, GM's Mary Barra acknowledged under often testy questioning that the company took too long to act. Since February, GM has recalled 2.6 million cars over the faulty switch, which can cause the engine to cut off in traffic, disabling the power steering, power brakes and air bags and making it difficult to control the vehicle.

Pederson, who is based in Lisle, Ill., spoke Monday in Monticello at the plant's annual regulatory meeting for community members and plant workers.

Possible release of Israeli spy Pollard spurs uproar 01 Apr 2014 A reported U.S. offer to free spy Jonathan Pollard to breathe life into stagnant peace talks has politicians, settlers and activists on all sides in an uproar over whether the price is too high.

Pollard was convicted of spying after providing Israel with thousands of classified documents, including intelligence on the Soviet military, while working as a civilian intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy in the 1980s.

Republican budget proposes deep cuts in domestic programs and huge increases in defense spending --In fiscal 2016, Ryan's plan would add $43 billion in 'defense' spending 01 Apr 2014 Representative Paul Ryan (WI), the leading Republican voice on budget policy, rolled out a new fiscal blueprint on Tuesday that calls for deep cuts in domestic programs, increased defense spending and a goal of erasing annual deficits in 10 years. Ryan's budget, called the "Path to [Puke] Prosperity," has almost no chance of passing the Democratic-controlled Senate but is expected to serve as a campaign manifesto for Republicans in November's congressional elections. It proposes to kill President Barack Obama's 2010 healthcare reforms and revives cuts in social programs such as the popular Medicare plan for the elderly that Ryan, who chairs the House Budget Committee, has proposed in other recent budgets.

April 1, 2014 by legitgov

CIA tortured prisoners after intelligence info was surrendered - Senate report 31 Mar 2014 A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled lied to the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years -- concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques torture. The report, built around detailed chronologies of dozens of CIA detainees, documents a long-standing pattern of unsubstantiated claims as agency officials sought permission to use -- and later tried to defend -- excruciating interrogation methods that yielded little, if any, significant intelligence, according to U.S. officials who have reviewed the document.

World close to tipping point on global warming, UN body warns

April 1, 2014 by legitgov

World close to tipping point on global warming, UN body warns 01 Apr 2014 The world is at risk of "crossing multiple tipping points", triggering dangerous global warming, if average surface temperatures rise by 4 degrees Celsius or more, according to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In the second volume of its Fifth Assessment Report, released yesterday, the IPCC warns of "severe and widespread impacts on unique and threatened systems, substantial species extinction [and] large risks to global and regional food security". Although the precise levels of warming sufficient to trigger tipping points - thresholds for abrupt and irreversible change - "remain uncertain", it says the risk of crossing multiple tipping points in the Earth's climate system increases with rising temperatures.

March 31, 2014 by legitgov

MH370: Tighter flight security 31 Mar 2014 Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Malaysia Airports Hol­dings Bhd (MAHB) have tightened flight security in the air and on the ground in the wake of the Flight MH370 tragedy.

MH370: Real last words from cockpit revealed

March 31, 2014 by legitgov

MH370: Real last words from cockpit revealed 01 Apr 2014 The last words from the cockpit of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane before it disappeared were actually 'Good night, Malaysian three seven zero,' not 'All right, good night' as Malaysian authorities had previously claimed. It is not clear whether the sign off was said by Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah or his co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid, but it was transmitted as the plane left Malaysian airspace and was about to enter that of Vietnam at 1.19am on March 8. The cause of the discrepancy is unclear, but for three weeks it was reported that 'All right, good night' had been said by co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid two minutes before the plane's transponder was shut down.
