Jeb: George W. Bush is a top foreign policy adviser

May 8, 2015 by legitgov

Mega barf alert and gag me with a chainsaw: Jeb: George W. Bush is a top foreign policy adviser | 07 May 2015 | Jeb Bush cited his brother, former President [sic] George W. Bush, as one of his main advisers on the Middle East in a private meeting in Manhattan on Tuesday, according to three people who attended the off-the-record event. The comment came as a shock to some who were in the room because Jeb, a likely presidential contender, has taken pains to publicly distance himself from his brother and his controversial policies, particularly in that area of the world. The Washington Post [covering for Jeb, merely] reported that Jeb cited his brother as an adviser on Israel; however, four sources confirmed to CNN that the comments were focused on foreign policy more broadly. Three of them said Jeb noted his brother was an adviser on the Middle East.

Canada frees Omar Khadr, once Guantánamo Bay's youngest inmate | 07 May 2015 | Twelve years and nine months after he was captured at the age of 15 by US troops in Afghanistan and taken to Guantánamo Bay, Omar Khadr - now 28 - has walked out of jail. A judge rebuffed the conservative Canadian government's attempt to block bail for Khadr, the youngest person ever held by the US at Guantánamo, who was transferred to his home country in 2012. Under the terms of his bail, set on Tuesday by Justice June Ross, Khadr will live with Edney and his wife in Edmonton. Khadr will be subject to extensive monitoring, to include wearing an electronic bracelet and the remote surveillance of his internet usage at Edney's home. He will not be permitted to have a laptop, cellphone or any other mobile device, and he will be subject to a curfew from 10pm to 7am.

Secret Service Adding New Metal Spikes to White House Fence Following Breaches | 07 May 2015 | Following several high-profile security breaches, the Secret Service on Thursday announced they would be adding "temporary security enhancements" to the White House -- including an anti-climb feature with sharp metal spikes. The new security measures will include replacing concrete barriers at vehicle checkpoints with mobile steel plate barriers, adding a new officer booth at a White House entrance and installing a removable anti-climb feature "with sharp metal points" on top of the White House fence, the agencies said in the statement.

U.S. training anti-Assad Syrian forces to 'fight ISIS' | 07 May 2015 | The United States has begun training Syrian forces to fight ISIS [I-CIA-SIS], Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Thursday. Carter said that about 90 Syrian fighters had begun their training, and he said a second group would begin training in the next few weeks. He called it "critical and a complex part" of U.S. efforts to fight ISIS overthrow President Bashar al-Assad. Carter declined to say where they were being trained.

NSA mass phone surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden ruled illegal

May 7, 2015 by legitgov

NSA mass phone surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden ruled illegal | 07 May 2015 | The US court of appeals has ruled that the bulk collection of telephone metadata is unlawful, in a landmark decision that clears the way for a full legal challenge against the National Security Agency. A panel of three federal judges for the second circuit overturned an earlier ruling that the controversial surveillance practice first revealed to the US public by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013 could not be subject to judicial review. But the judges also waded into the charged and ongoing debate over the reauthorization of a key Patriot Act provision currently before US legislators. That provision, which the appeals court ruled the NSA program surpassed, will expire on 1 June amid gridlock in Washington on what to do about it. The judges opted not to end the domestic bulk collection while Congress decides its fate, calling judicial inaction "a lesser intrusion" on privacy than at the time the case was initially argued. [The goal here by the US government and its corpora-terrorist overlords is simply to *privatize* the bulk data collection - not to end it. --LRP]

Afghan poppy farmers say new seeds will boost opium output

May 7, 2015 by legitgov

CIA 'mission accomplished' in Afghanistan: Afghan poppy farmers say new seeds will boost opium output --Production hit a record high in 2014, up 17 percent compared to the year before | 05 May 2015 | This year, many Afghan poppy farmers are expecting a windfall as they get ready to harvest opium from a new variety of poppy seeds said to boost yield of the resin that produces heroin. The plants grow bigger, faster, use less water than seeds they've used before, and give up to double the amount of opium, they say. Afghanistan's poppy harvest, which accounts for most of the world's heroin, is worth an estimated $3 billion a year, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Denmark suspends fracking over hazardous chemicals

May 7, 2015 by legitgov

Denmark suspends fracking over hazardous chemicals | 06 May 2015 | Denmark has suspended the first exploratory drilling for shale gas which lasted only one day after it discovered that French gas-giant Total, in charge of the project, had used "unauthorized" chemicals. "They used a product that was not part of those authorized" for the procedure, Ture Falbe-Hansen, a Danish Energy Agency spokesman told AFP Wednesday. The type of defoamer known as Null Foam is used in fracking to extract shale gas and is considered hazardous to the environment, according to Danish public broadcaster DR.

Kincardine nuclear waste site, to be located on the shore of Lake Huron, gets federal seal of approval

May 7, 2015 by legitgov

Kincardine nuclear waste site, to be located on the shore of Lake Huron, gets federal seal of approval | 06 May 2015 | A federal panel has [*insanely*] given an overall seal of approval to the controversial nuclear waste disposal site proposed for a subterranean crypt below the Bruce nuclear station near Kincardine, Ont. The panel's favourable view of the project, proposed by Ontario Power Generation, overcomes a major regulatory hurdle in the construction of the Deep Geologic Repository, or DGR in industry jargon, which would nuclear waste buried hundreds of metres underground near the shore of Lake Huron. Supporters and opponents -- there are 152 communities opposed to the project, including Toronto and Chicago -- were poring over the report after it was released late Wednesday, examining closely the conditions that the panel says should be imposed before the project can proceed.

Global carbon dioxide levels break 400ppm milestone

May 7, 2015 by legitgov

Global carbon dioxide levels break 400ppm milestone --'The last time the Earth had this much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was more than a million years ago, when modern humans hadn't even evolved yet.' --Dr Ed Hawkins | 06 May 2015 | Record carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations in the atmosphere were recorded worldwide in March, in what scientists said marked a significant milestone for global warming. Figures released by the US science agency Noaa on Wednesday show that for the first time since records began, the parts per million (ppm) of CO2 in the atmosphere were over 400 globally for a month. The measure is the key indicator of the amount of planet-warming gases man is putting into the atmosphere at record rates, and the current concentrations are unprecedented in millions of years.

Poll: Jeb Bush trails most of Republican field in Iowa --45% said Bush was 'not conservative enough.' | 06 May 2015 | Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush may be the most popular Republican presidential hopeful nationwide, but he trails his rivals badly in the critical state of Iowa, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Only 5% of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers told Quinnipiac University pollsters that they planned to vote for Bush, placing him No. 7 in the field of declared or potential 2016 candidates.

Nurse Reveals Routine Vaccine-Induced Injury From Current Schedule at Hospitals

Nurse Reveals Routine Vaccine-Induced Injury From Current Schedule at Hospitals | 04 May 2015 | In California and Vermont, it has been confirmed that the community, because of its strong opposition, is simply no longer able to testify on record. Any whisper of the possibility of endlessly stacked parents rejecting votes sees immediate postponement of committee meetings to remove such options...In a recent interview, Michelle Rowton of Nurses Against Mandatory Vaccines was asked her thoughts on the current medical community vaccinating children too early with too many vaccines, she replied: "I think what a lot of people don't realize in a closed space like NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) is that they've decided that we need to vaccinate these babies on-time. Two months after they're born...bam, there it goes. This baby could be four months early and still supposed to be inside their mother, weighting three or four pounds and getting the same amount of vaccines as a 200 pound man."

May 6, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. boosts bird flu emergency funds as H5 avian influenza strains spread to 14 states | 05 May 2015 | The U.S. government approved the use of an additional $330 million in emergency funds to help contain the worst avian influenza outbreak in U.S. history, as infected bird cases soared and hundreds of Minnesota poultry workers learned they would lose their jobs. The funds became available after the federal Office of Management and Budget granted U.S. Agriculture [Agriterrorism] Secretary Tom Vilsack's request for additional emergency funds, USDA sources confirmed to Reuters on Tuesday. Virulent H5 avian influenza strains have spread to 14 states in five months and affected about 24 million birds so far, mostly egg-laying hens and turkeys, according to USDA.

Lawmakers back spy bill dubbed 'French Patriot Act'

May 6, 2015 by legitgov

Lawmakers back spy bill dubbed 'French Patriot Act' | 05 May 2015 | French lawmakers voted in favour Tuesday of a new law granting the state sweeping surveillance powers, despite criticism from civil society groups that have dubbed the bill the "French Patriot Act". The bill passed the National Assembly with 438 votes in favour and just 86 against after it gained the backing of the two main parties - the ruling Socialists and the centre-right UMP. The bill will now go up before the French parliament's upper house, the Senate, in June.

Vaccine law will force kids out of schools - Marin, California

May 5, 2015 by legitgov

Unintended consequence of pharma-fascism: Vaccine law will force kids out of schools - Marin, California | 03 May 2015 | Senate Bill 277 has already passed in several committees and is quickly making its way through the legislative process on its way to becoming a law. This bill eliminates the exemption from immunization based upon personal and religious beliefs and will prevent children who are not fully vaccinated from enrolling in any public or private school. When children are denied their right to a free, public school education as provided under the state constitution, many parents will feel they have no choice except to begin homeschooling in order to avoid the requirements of SB 277...Some Marin schools would lose upwards of 20 to 50 percent of their students thereby putting teachers' jobs at risk of being eliminated.

Extreme secrecy eroding support for Obama's TPP 'trade' pact --Classified briefings and bill-readings in basement rooms are making members queasy. | 05 May 2015 | If you want to hear the details of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade corporate supremacy deal the Obama administration is hoping to pass, you've got to be a member of Congress, and you've got to go to classified briefings and leave your staff and cellphone at the door. If you're a member who wants to read the text, you've got to go to a room in the basement of the Capitol Visitor Center and be handed it one section at a time, watched over as you read, and forced to hand over any notes you make before leaving. And no matter what, you can't discuss the details of what you've read..."He's [Obama] indignant when we say it's secret," said Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.). "Maybe there's some definition of secrecy he knows that I don't know."

May 5, 2015 by legitgov

Texas police were warned about ISIS attack TWO DAYS days before deadly shootout by Anonymous activist | 05 May 2015 | An activist linked to the international hackers' collective Anonymous tipped off police in Garland, Texas, about an imminent attack on an anti-Islam event two days before it happened - but the red flag went unnoticed. Police and the FBI say Elton Simpson, 30, and his roommate, 34-year-old Nadir Soofi, from Phoenix, Arizona, opened fire Sunday evening on an unarmed security guard outside a contest featuring cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. The Daily Dot reported Monday that the Garland Police Department had received advance warning of the attack two days earlier, courtesy of a woman living outside the US who has identified herself as an affiliate of the Anonymous network.

Obama to name Marine general to become top U.S. military officer | 04 May 2015 | President Barack Obama on Tuesday will nominate Marine General Joseph Dunford as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, U.S. officials said on Monday, in a widely expected pick likely to win swift Senate confirmation. Dunford, commandant of the Marine Corps, would replace Army General Martin Dempsey, who is expected to step down in September as the top military officer after a tumultuous four-year period that saw most U.S. forces withdraw from Afghanistan but thousands return to Iraq. In addition, Obama will nominate Air Force General Paul Selva, currently the commander of the U.S. Transportation Command, as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

Two government sources who asked not to be named said the shooters were roommates Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, of Phoenix. Court documents show that Simpson had been under surveillance since 2006 and was convicted in 2011 of lying to FBI agents over his desire to join violent jihad in Somalia.

MSNBC Shows Alex Wagner, Ed Schultz, and Chris Hayes on the Chopping Block (But Corporatist Fraud Al Sharpton to Stay?!) | 04 May 2015 | According to Mediaite's Andrew Krill, three more MSNBC programs are on the chopping block as brand new NBC News president is getting involved in the network all the way down to the minutia. Andrew Lack is even showing up at the daily MSNBC editorial meeting held by network head Phil Griffin and according to the report, "Lack regularly appears 'underwhelmed' with the story pitches." A couple of weeks ago, the executive producers of Now with Alex Wagner, The Ed Show, and All In with Chris Hayes were told to prepare "sizzle reels" of the best their programs have to offer...The senior staffs of all three programs, we are told, are now concerned that their days are numbered. If Wagner, Schultz and Hayes get cancelled, is Al Sharpton far behind? [*Hopefully,* but keep The Ed Show. Ed Schultz is the only MSNBC 'pundit' to talk about the TPP.]

A *blatant* false flag in Garland, Texas: Accused Texas Gunman Well-Known to FBI Before Attack [And SWAT was already there, waiting.] | 04 May 2015 | Since at least 2007, the FBI has been able to recognize the voice of Elton Simpson -- one of the men suspected in the Texas shootings outside a contest featuring [racist] cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad. Agents recorded the young man from Phoenix talking about fighting nonbelievers for Allah...Simpson was arrested in 2010, one day before authorities say he planned to leave for South Africa. But despite more than 1,500 hours of recorded conversations, the government prosecuted him on only one minor charge -- lying to a federal agent. Years spent investigating Simpson for terrorism ties resulted in three years of probation and $600 in fines and court fees.

GOP field grows: Carson, Fiorina launch presidential bids | 04 May 2015 | Former [ousted] technology executive Carly Fiorina and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson jumped into the race for the Republican presidential nomination Monday, both longshots who nevertheless have the potential to attract a more diverse group of supporters to the party. Fiorina is likely to be the only prominent woman to seek the GOP nomination, with Carson the only likely African-American. They are both also political outsiders in a field likely to be dominated by governors, former governors and senators.

Lake Huron nuclear waste burial report expected this week

May 4, 2015 by legitgov

Lake Huron nuclear waste burial report expected this week --Ontario Power Generation proposes burying nuclear waste in underground bunker near Great Lakes | 03 May 2015 | A Canadian environmental assessment of a proposal to bury nuclear waste deep underground near the shores of Lake Huron is expected this week amid fierce opposition to the idea from home and abroad. Ontario Power Generation argues that storing the radioactive material in a huge underground bunker set in rock -- the deep geological repository or DGR -- is the safest way to deal with waste that is potentially dangerous for centuries. Opponents, however, argue no system is foolproof and any problems - especially with a facility about one kilometre from a major water source for millions of people - could be catastrophic. One of them, Stop the Great Lakes Nuclear Dump, has collected almost 75,000 signatures on an online petition and is already pledging to keep fighting the plan if the review panel green-lights it. [Instead of nuclear waste, bury the 'people' who drafted the proposal.]

Chris Christie Not Yet in the Clear on Bridgegate, NJ Lawmaker Says | 03 May 2015 | New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is not out of the woods on Bridgegate, according to John Wisniewski, Democratic chair of the New Jersey State Assembly Select Committee that has been investigating the matter. Wisniewski said Sunday on "This Week" that his committee's work is not yet complete, saying it has an "entirely different agenda" than prosecutors who released federal indictments Friday against a top aide and an appointee of Christie, shortly after another key figure pleaded guilty to conspiracy to shut down access lanes to the George Washington Bridge in September 2013. "There are at least three different versions of the facts," Wisniewski told ABC's George Stephanopoulos of conflicting accounts of who had knowledge of the bridge lane closures.
