June 3, 2016 by legitgov

Blue Cross asking for 60 percent rate hike for Obamacare plans in Texas in 2017 | 01 June 2016 | The largest health insurer in Texas wants to raise its rates on individual policies by an average of nearly 60 percent, a new sign that President Barack Obama's overhaul hasn't solved the problem of price spikes. Texas isn't alone. Citing financial losses under the health care law, many insurers around the country are requesting bigger premium increases for 2017. That's to account for lower-than-hoped enrollment, sicker-than-expected customers and problems with the government’s financial backstop for insurance markets.

Late Thursday afternoon, Trump tweeted his appreciation for Ryan's support.

Heads up on California primary day! June 7: FEMA, USNORTHCOM to hold drill to prepare for 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake and tsunami | 30 May 2016 | Starting on June 7th, FEMA will be conducting a large-scale drill that has been named "Cascadia Rising" that will simulate the effects of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone and an accompanying west coast tsunami dozens of feet tall.

At least 33 US cities used water testing 'cheats' over lead concerns

June 2, 2016 by legitgov

At least 33 US cities used water testing 'cheats' over lead concerns | 02 June 2016 | At least 33 cities across 17 US states have used water testing "cheats" that potentially conceal dangerous levels of lead, a Guardian investigation launched in the wake of the toxic water crisis in Flint, Michigan, has found. Of these cities, 21 used the same water testing methods that prompted criminal charges against three government employees in Flint over their role in one of the worst public health disasters in US history. The crisis that gripped Flint is an extreme case where a cost-cutting decision to divert the city's water supply to a polluted river was compounded by a poor testing regime and delays by environmental officials to respond to the health emergency. The Guardian's investigation demonstrates that similar testing regimes were in place in cities including Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit and Milwaukee.

Doctors Name Larvicide Manufactured by Monsanto Partner Sumitomo Chemical as Cause of Brazilian Microcephaly Outbreak

June 2, 2016 by legitgov

Doctors Name Larvicide Manufactured by Monsanto Partner Sumitomo Chemical as Cause of Brazilian Microcephaly Outbreak | 03 Feb 2016 | A report from the Argentine doctors' organisation, Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, challenges the theory that the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil is the cause of the increase in the birth defect microcephaly among newborns. The increase in this birth defect, in which the baby is born with an abnormally small head and often has brain damage, was quickly linked to the Zika virus by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. However, according to the Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, the Ministry failed to recognise that in the area where most sick people live, a chemical larvicide that produces malformations in mosquitoes was introduced into the drinking water supply in 2014. This poison, Pyriproxyfen, is used in a state-controlled programme [allegedly] aimed at eradicating disease-carrying mosquitoes.

ISIS Sleeper Cell Planned to Blow Up Subway - German Federal Prosecutor | 02 June 2016 | Four Syrian nationals accused of being an ISIS sleeper cell are in custody after one in the group revealed a plot to unleash suicide bombs at a busy metro station in Germany, according to Germany's federal prosecutor.

Planning for the attack went as far back as May 2014 when two of the men, identified as Saleh A. and Hamza C., received approval for the attack from ISIS leadership before slipping into Europe through Turkey and then Greece, according to a statement on the prosecutor's website.

Is a new candidate going to enter the presidential race? | 30 May 2016 | Weekly Standard editor [sic] Bill Kristol sent out a provocative tweet Sunday, calling for a "heads up over this holiday weekend" that another presidential candidate -- an independent [aka Koch troll] -- would be entering the race for the White House.

Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM for discussing extra-legal means to 'advocate harm against' Trump | 31 May 2016 | SiriusXM hosts Stephen K. Bannon and David Webb announced on Breitbart News Daily that SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck and Webb will temporarily take over Beck's 9AM to noon Eastern time slot on SiriusXM's Patriot Channel 125. The suspension is in response to the interview Beck did with fiction author [sic] Brad Thor last Wednesday, in which Thor likened the GOP's presumptive nominee Donald Trump to a South American-style dictator who would cause an "extinction-level event" for the country if elected. Thor then declared that in such a case, Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by "legal means" through impeachment, so Thor asked "what patriot will step up and do that" if Trump oversteps his Constitutional restraints. Beck agreed with Thor's assessment.

North Korean state media offers support for 'wise politician' Donald Trump

North Korean state media offers support for 'wise politician' Donald Trump | 31 May 2016 | Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, has faced an unusual amount of criticism from foreign leaders -- in large part because of his combative tone and unorthodox policy suggestions. This week, however, he found an unlikely international voice of support -- in North Korean state media [as opposed to 'corporate-owned media,' which is never added as a descriptor in US publications]. State outlet DPRK Today published an editorial on Tuesday that called the business mogul a "wise politician" and said he could be good for North Korea. "There are many positive aspects to Trump's 'inflammatory policies,'" the author of the article wrote, according to a translation from NK News.
