June 9, 2015 by legitgov

Firing of Officer Urged After Pool Party Fracas in McKinney, Texas | 08 June 2015 | Religious and civic leaders on Monday called for officials in McKinney, Tex., to fire the police officer seen in a video throwing a 14-year-old girl in a swimsuit to the ground and pointing his gun at other teenagers after a disturbance at a pool party. Speaking at a news conference in front of police headquarters, the leaders also urged the Department of Justice to investigate whether the incident, which occurred Friday in west McKinney, was racially motivated. "We are demanding that the officer be fired and be charged with assaulting the youth," Dominique R. Alexander, the president of the Next General Action Network, based in nearby Grand Prairie, said.

The Saudis are ready to go nuclear

June 8, 2015 by legitgov

The Saudis are ready to go nuclear --The kingdom's ambassador to London tells the Telegraph that 'all options are on the table' if talks fail to keep Iran in check | 08 June 2015 | In the past two years, Saudi Arabia has beaten Britain into fourth place in the world's military spending league with a defence budget of around £37 billion (compared with the UK at around £34 billion). The military offensive in Yemen has seen Saudi Arabia [war criminals, terrorists, and sociopaths] deploy an estimated 150,000 troops -- nearly twice the size of the British Army -- while Saudi fighter jets, many of them British-made, have flown thousands of sorties. Now the Saudis have raised the alarming prospect of the Middle East becoming embroiled in a nuclear arms race after the country's blunt warning that "all options are on the table" if Iran fails to resolve the international stand-off over its nuclear programme.

In Sworn Statement, Ex-Official Says Chris Christie Broke Grand Jury Law

June 8, 2015 by legitgov

In Sworn Statement, Ex-Official Says Chris Christie Broke Grand Jury Law | 07 June 2015 | The players at the center of the George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal are not finished causing headaches for Gov. Chris Christie. The latest indication comes in a sworn statement by David Wildstein, a former Port Authority official and the admitted mastermind of the access-lane closings, that describes Mr. Christie breaking the law as he exercised a heavy hand over state politics from the front office. Mr. Wildstein's statement, in a civil case separate from the federal prosecution in the bridge case, offers the first insider confirmation of a long-rumored tale of New Jersey political corruption, and places Mr. Christie at the center of it. It also portrays the governor, a former United States attorney, casually revealing information about a grand jury proceeding he had overseen, which violates federal law.

Audio of the 911 call, placed at around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday, makes it clear the man wasn't kitten around, either. "My cat was getting too aggressive," Mohammed Lokman can be heard telling the 911 operator. Police told News12 that the 7.5-pound feline had given birth the night before and that she apparently became aggressive when the man left the house and then attempted to return.

And more arms were on the way, Pentagon spokeswoman Commander Elissa Smith said. [Does anyone else see what's happening here? I-CIA-SIS was created so the open money pit for US contractors supplying Iraq with arms and bogus 'training' programs can continue until the end of time. --LRP]

Pentagon appeals for scientists' help tracking its anthrax shipments

June 5, 2015 by legitgov

Dumbf*ck City: Pentagon appeals for scientists' help tracking its anthrax shipments [LOL!] | 04 June 2015 | The Pentagon on Thursday asked microbiologists for help in tracking samples of anthrax that the army shipped to at least 51 labs in 17 U.S. states and three foreign countries, according to an announcement shared with Reuters. The request indicates that the Pentagon does not know where the anthrax wound up. Researchers who had worked with it at the Dugway Proving Ground biological lab in Utah thought the anthrax samples that they shipped had been killed, but at least one of the labs that received it said it in fact contained live spores. "It suggests there has been some sideways movement of the samples that the army has no record of," said Martin Hugh-Jones, an emeritus professor of epidemiology at Louisiana State University who is considered the dean of non-defense anthrax research.

N.S.A. Secretly Expands Internet Spying at U.S. Border, Hunting for Hackers

June 4, 2015 by legitgov

N.S.A. Secretly Expands Internet Spying at U.S. Border, Hunting for Hackers | 04 June 2015 | Without public notice or debate, the Obama administration has expanded the National Security Agency's warrantless surveillance of Americans' international Internet traffic to search for evidence of malicious computer hacking, according to classified N.S.A. documents. In mid-2012, Justice Department lawyers wrote two secret memos permitting the spy agency to begin hunting on Internet cables, without a warrant and on American soil, for data linked to computer intrusions originating abroad -- including traffic that flows to suspicious Internet addresses or contains malware, the documents show. The Justice Department allowed the agency to monitor only addresses and "cybersignatures" -- patterns associated with computer intrusions -- that it could tie to foreign governments. But the documents also note that the N.S.A. sought permission to target hackers even when it could not establish any links to foreign powers.

Tennessee infant dies in sleep less than four days after receiving seven vaccines | 03 June 2015 | Parents in Memphis, Tennessee, are mourning the loss of their baby girl Ja'Liyah Cortize Turner, after she passed away in her sleep, less than four days after receiving seven vaccines. Her mother Quavia felt pressured into getting her daughter further vaccinated, even though she didn't want to, because her daughter had a bad reaction from the round of vaccines given to her earlier. Ja'Liyah's autopsy report did not mention the vaccines even though she still had the knots on her legs at the injection sites. Her cause of death was ruled "Unknown, Undetermined." The autopsy stated Ja’Liyah had no significant medical history contributing to her death. Yet, it is very significant Ja'Liyah had just received seven vaccines four days earlier.

Hillary Clinton calls for sweeping expansion of voter registration

June 4, 2015 by legitgov

Hillary Clinton calls for sweeping expansion of voter registration | 04 June 2015 | Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday called for sweeping changes in national voter registration laws aimed at making it easier for young people and minorities to take part in elections, putting her on a collision course with Republicans who say such reforms are a political ploy that would lead to widespread abuses. In a speech at an historically black college here [Texas Southern University], Clinton called for federal legislation that would automatically register Americans to vote at age 18 and would mandate at least 20 days of early voting ahead of election days in all states. Clinton said Republican state legislatures are deliberately restricting voting by curtailing early access to the polls and other measures in an effort to suppress Democratic turnout.

Protect NYC parks -- and deep-six NYU expansion

Protect NYC parks -- and deep-six NYU expansion By Mark Ruffalo | 04 June 2015 | What makes a park a park? ...Today, it is an urgent legal question before the New York Court of Appeals. For our state's highest court will either save our city parks, by reaffirming a time-honored civic principle, or they will throw it out, and so allow the city to seize countless open spaces long enjoyed as public parks, and hand them over to private developers, without approval from the state Legislature. Such is the looming consequence of New York University's plan to bulk up its Greenwich Village presence with four huge towers -- roughly two-million square feet of commercial real estate -- crammed onto the two residential blocks just south of Washington Square.

Montana man saves newborn moose after he found it crying next to its dead mother and calls rescue team who horrify him by shooting it dead

Montana man saves newborn moose after he found it crying next to its dead mother and calls rescue team who horrify him by SHOOTING it dead | 04 June 2015 | A Bozeman, Montana man thought he was saving a baby moose's life when he called park authorities about the orphan, but instead he ended up unwittingly aiding in the slaughter of the helpless newborn. Josh Hohm was exploring the woodland near West Boulder Campground in Montana's Gallatin National Forest this past Memorial Day when he stumbled upon a newborn moose, so young it could barely walk. Nearby, Hohm spotted a sad sight: the dead body of the calf's mother along with a stillborn baby. Overwhelmed by the scene, Hohm hugged the little orphaned moose, posing for a selfie with the baby...Hoping to get the moose some protection and food, Hohm called the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Service. Hohm says after he handed the newborn over to the rangers, they shot the baby dead in a 'mercy killing' and then proceeded to blow up the three bodies so that their rotting carcasses would 'not attract bears and other predators' to the campground.
