Republican budget proposes deep cuts in domestic programs and huge increases in defense spending

April 1, 2014 by legitgov

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.

CIA tortured prisoners after intelligence info was surrendered - Senate report

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. The pilot and a co-pilot are now not allowed to be left alone in the cockpit, even when one of them is taking a restroom break, according to a MAS circular... When bringing food to the cockpit, a flight attendant is required to stand guard at the door to make sure no passenger enters the restricted area. On the ground, MAHB has made it mandatory for anyone taking an international flight to pass through two metal-detectors and undergo a body search before they board.

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.

Obamacare website stalls briefly ahead of enrollment deadline 31 Mar 2014 The federal website for U.S. consumers to enroll in private health insurance under Obamacare ran into problems twice on Monday, amid a surge of people trying to access the site hours before a midnight deadline to sign up for coverage.

Flu Shot Causes Polio-like Guillain-Barre Syndrome: Are Rates Higher Than the Government Admits?

March 31, 2014 by legitgov

Flu Shot Causes Polio-like Guillain-Barré Syndrome: Are Rates Higher Than the Government Admits? 31 Mar 2014 ...The first place to look is in settlements for GBS caused by the flu vaccine in the Vaccine Court. U.S. law prevents you from suing vaccine manufacturers for any damage or deaths due to vaccines. By an Act of Congress in 1986 that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011, a special court was set up to handle all vaccine cases. The funds for settlements are paid via a tax on the sales of vaccines. Just a quick cursory view of cases that are being compensated by this vaccine court shows that the most cases, by far, are cases for GBS and the flu vaccine. The U.S. Court of Federal Claims provides a referral list of attorneys that specialize in representing clients wanting to file claims for vaccine damages. The list is here, and contains 123 attorneys.

March 31, 2014 by legitgov

Ecuador does not recognize Ukraine's 'illegitimate' govt - Correa 30 Mar 2014 Ecuador has said it will not deal with the coup-appointed government in Kiev and has called for fair elections. President Rafael Correa declared he would only negotiate with a "legitimate government" that represents the will of the Ukrainian people. In his weekly address to the Ecuadorian people, Correa explained why Ecuador had abstained from the UN General Assembly vote Thursday that passed a resolution condemning Crimea's union with Russia. "We will not fall for a farce, we will only deal with a legitimate government," said Correa, adding that Ecuador does not recognize the current government that is the product of a coup d'état. [Sweet! That's what the whole world should have done when Bush was installed by the US Supreme Court in the 2000 coup d'etat.]

Vaccine effectiveness a dismal 9% in elderly against main flu strain H3N2

March 30, 2014 by legitgov

Vaccine effectiveness a dismal 9% in elderly against main flu strain H3N2 29 Mar 2014 Vaccine effectiveness against H3N2, the main flu strain circulating the 2012–2013 flu season, proved to be only 46% in adults aged 18–49, 50% in those aged 50–64, and a dismal 9% in people aged over 65 -- a vulnerable group. Flu hospitalizations and deaths were the highest in almost a decade. Poor outlook: ...Moreover, the Canadian researchers found that the same problem probably arose with a revised H3N2 component of the 2013–14 flu vaccine (each season's vaccine is also designed to ward off H1N1 and influenza B type viruses) and the upcoming 2014–15 vaccine. This suggests that effectiveness against H3N2 may be poor in these seasons' vaccines, too.

Malaysia is a top US intelligence target, Snowden documents show

March 30, 2014 by legitgov

Ah, then came the dawn. Malaysia is a top US intelligence target, Snowden documents show 30 Mar 2014 Malaysia’s political leadership is a priority intelligence target for the United States and Australia, according to top secret documents published by Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine. Former Malaysian Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, who served as Malaysian prime minister from October 2003 to April 2009, is listed in an extract from the US National Security Agency's "Target Knowledge Base", a database designed to build up "complete profiles" of high priority intelligence targets. The top secret briefing, created in 2009, indicates that the full list of targeted heads of foreign governments contained 122 names. The final name on the list is Yulia Tymoshenko, who was Ukrainian prime minister at the time. According to Der Spiegel a National Security Agency search program codenamed "Nymrod" enables intelligence analysis to search the database to "find information relating to targets that would otherwise be tough to track down". Each of the names in the database is considered a "SIGINT target" with automated data processing making it possible to manage more than 3 million entries.

U.N. watchdog urges Obama to curb drone use, surveillance 27 Mar 2014 A U.N. human rights watchdog called on the Obama administration on Thursday to limit its use of drones targeting suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban militants civilians and to curb U.S. surveillance activities at home and abroad. U.S. drone strikes have led to excessive civilian casualties and unrestricted data collection has eroded the right to privacy, the U.N. Human Rights Committee said in its first report on Washington's rights record since 2006. "A lot has to do with lack of transparency and oversight," Swiss lawyer Walter Kaelin, who is among the panel's 18 independent experts, told a news briefing where the findings were issued.

MH370 search: Captain Mark Matthews paints pessimistic assessment of black box search 30 Mar 2014 Finding the black box flight recorder of the missing Malaysia Airlines passenger jet is simply "untenable" as things stand at the moment, the US Navy officer who will lead the search has conceded. The deeply pessimistic assessment from Captain Mark Matthews came as the Royal Australian Navy vessel Ocean Shield was being loaded with a "pinger" locator and an underwater drone critical to recovering the black box. However, ADV Ocean Shield will not arrive in the 319,000 square kilometre search area for three to four days, while the beacon on the black box could have only four days of battery power left.

World's first cyber hijack: Was missing Malaysia Airlines flight hacked with mobile phone? 16 Mar 2014 Intelligence chiefs fear the missing Malaysian airliner was hijacked by hackers taking over the controls using a mobile phone.

It could then be landed or made to crash by remote control. Possible culprits include criminal gangs, terrorists or a foreign power. ['Foreign power.' Has anyone checked Diego Garcia?]
