Expert urges California nuclear plant closure over earthquake threat 25 Aug 2014 A senior federal nuclear expert is urging regulators to shut down California's last operating nuclear plant until they can determine whether the facility's twin reactors can withstand powerful shaking from any one of several nearby earthquake faults. Michael Peck, who for five years was Diablo Canyon's lead on-site inspector, says in a 42-page, confidential report that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is not applying the safety rules it set out for the plant's operation...Continuing to run the reactors, Peck writes, "challenges the presumption of nuclear safety."

Scott Walker, J.B. Van Hollen again ask court to reinstate voter ID

Scott Walker, J.B. Van Hollen again ask court to reinstate voter ID 24 Aug 2014 Gov. Scott Walker and Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen are asking a federal court to reinstate Wisconsin's voter ID [suppression] law, but they have not finalized a plan to comply with a different court's decision requiring the state to provide IDs to people who don't have birth certificates. The state Supreme Court last month upheld the voter ID law, but the requirement to show photo ID at the polls remains blocked because a federal judge has found it violates the Voting Rights Act and U.S. Constitution. A new court filing suggests the voter ID law is unlikely to be put in place for the Nov. 4 election, when the GOP governor faces Democrat Mary Burke. She opposes the voter ID law.

Obama Approves Surveillance Flights Over Syria, Precursor to Airstrikes 25 Aug 2014 President Obama has authorized surveillance flights over Syria, a precursor to airstrikes there, but a mounting concern for the White House is how to target the Sunni extremists without helping President Bashar al-Assad. Defense officials said on Monday evening that the Pentagon is sending in manned and unmanned reconnaissance flights over Syria, using a combination of aircraft, including drones and possibly U2 spy planes. Mr. Obama authorized the flights over the weekend, a senior administration official said. The surveillance flights are a significant step toward direct American military action in Syria, an intervention that could alter the battlefield in Syria's three-year civil war.

Handcuffed Black Youth Killed Himself in Police Cruiser, Says Coroner 25 Aug 2014 A coroner's report obtained exclusively by NBC News directly contradicts the police version of how a 22-year-old black man died in the back seat of a Louisiana police cruiser earlier this year -- but still says the man, whose hands were cuffed behind his back, shot himself. In a press release issued March 3, the day he died, the Louisiana State Police said Victor White III apparently shot himself in an Iberia Parish police car. According to the police statement, White had his hands cuffed behind his back when he shot himself in the back.

CDC whistleblower exposes massive autism cover-up perpetrated by government agency 25 Aug 2014 The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been engaged in a massive campaign of deception concerning the alleged safety of the combination measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, also known as MMR. A top-level scientist from the agency, who recently came forward as an anonymous whistleblower, confessed that the CDC deliberately concealed data showing that MMR can cause autism, particularly in African American boys who are vaccinated before the age of three. Speaking to Dr. Brian Hooker from the Focus Autism Foundation (FAF), the whistleblower reportedly filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking original data on a study that the CDC routinely cites as evidence of MMR's safety.

Foley murder video 'may have been staged'

August 25, 2014 by legitgov

I-CIA-SIS false flag quickly unfurls: Foley murder video 'may have been staged' 25 Aug 2014 The video of James Foley's execution may have been staged, with the actual murder taking place off-camera, it has emerged. Forensic analysis of the footage of the journalist's death has suggested that the British jihadist in the film may have been the frontman rather than the killer...A study of the four-minute 40-second clip, carried out by an international forensic science company which has worked for police forces across Britain, suggested camera trickery and slick post-production techniques appear to have been used. A forensic analyst told The Times that no blood can be seen, even though the knife is drawn across the neck area at least six times...One expert commissioned to examine the footage was reported as saying: "I think it has been staged."

Cornel West: 'He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit.'

Cornel West: 'He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency.' --Cornel West talks to Salon...and unloads on the failed promise of Barack Obama 24 Aug 2014 CW: "No, the thing is he posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he's just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair...I think Obama, his modus operandi going all the way back to when he was head of the [Harvard] Law Review, first editor of the Law Review and didn't have a piece in the Law Review. He was chosen because he always occupied the middle ground. He doesn't realize that a great leader, a statesperson, doesn't just occupy middle ground. They occupy higher ground or the moral ground or even sometimes the holy ground. But the middle ground is not the place to go if you're going to show courage and vision. And I think that’s his modus operandi. He always moves to the middle ground."

August 24, 2014 by legitgov

US 'set to launch air strikes' on senior Isis leaders in Syria 23 Aug 2014 The United States was said to be considering air strikes aimed at eliminating individual leaders of Islamic State as Turkey came under mounting pressure to stem the flow of jihadists across its border into Syria. As Washington on Saturday debated extending air strikes into Syria, senior British politicians urged Ankara to act to block recruits from the UK and other countries from entering Syria via Turkey, en route to joining Islamic State (formerly Isis)...Isis wants to establish dominance in the area to make it easier for potential recruits to gain safe passage and to allow the movement of vital supplies, including weapons and oil. [See the last word here? *Oil.* Hence, I-CIA-SIS.]

'Incredible' rate of polar ice loss alarms scientists --A European satellite has shown ice sheets shrinking at 120 cubic miles a year in Antarctica and Greenland 23 Aug 2014 The planet's two largest ice sheets – in Greenland and Antarctica – are now being depleted at an astonishing rate of 120 cubic miles each year. That is the discovery made by scientists using data from CryoSat-2, the European probe that has been measuring the thickness of Earth's ice sheets and glaciers since it was launched by the European Space Agency in 2010. Even more alarming, the rate of loss of ice from the two regions has more than doubled since 2009, revealing the dramatic impact that climate change global warming is beginning to have on our world.
