Exhausted forest firefighters refuse to sing O Canada for Harper | 25 July 2015 | Prime Minister Stephen Harper is getting slammed on social media for having a group of front-line firefighters pulled out of the smoky hills near this bustling B.C. city so they could pose with him for a patriotic, pre-election picture. But things didn't go quite as planned for Harper's advance team of organizers. The selected firefighters were so tired and annoyed that they just silently watched Harper as he waved his arms around like a conductor and tried to get them to sing along with him in a rousing chorus of O Canada...And none of them accepted the "Canada's Better With Harper" t-shirts that the PM's bodyguards were handing out.

GOP congressman launches bid to oust John Boehner as House speaker | 28 July 2015 | A Republican congressman has filed a request to oust House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) in a new and unusual challenge to his leadership from the GOP's right flank. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Tuesday evening filed a "motion to vacate the chair," which, if successful, would force the election of a new speaker. Such a challenge has never before succeeded in the House, and only once before -- 105 years ago -- has it been attempted.

American accused of killing African lion convicted in '06 bear hunt | 28 July 2015 | An avid Minnesota hunter accused of illegally killing a protected lion in Zimbabwe has a felony on his record related to shooting a black bear in Wisconsin, according to federal court records. [Sociopath] Walter Palmer, 55, of the Minneapolis suburb of Eden Prairie, pleaded guilty in 2008 to making false statements to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service about a black bear he fatally shot in western Wisconsin. Palmer had a permit to hunt but shot the animal outside the authorized zone in 2006, then tried to pass it off as being killed elsewhere, according to court documents.

American Hunter [Terrorist] Killed Cecil, Beloved Lion That Was Lured Out of Its Sanctuary --Walter Palmer was convicted in a 2006 black bear hunt, too. Too bad Cecil -- or anyone -- was unable to shoot this sociopath, *first.* | 28 July 2015 | Cecil, a 13-year-old lion, wandered out of his sanctuary in a national park in Zimbabwe this month, following the scent of a potential snack. At the other end of Cecil's search was a lure, placed there by hunters who, conservationists say, wanted their prey to cross into unprotected territory so they could kill him. Cecil, well known to those who visited the Hwange National Park in western Zimbabwe for his jet black mane, was beheaded, according to conservation officials. His corpse was left to rot in the sun. Zimbabwean officials said that Dr. Walter J. Palmer, an American hunter known for killing big game with a bow and arrow, killed Cecil, and was being sought on poaching charges.

U.S. to parole convicted Israeli spy Pollard on Nov. 21

July 29, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. to parole convicted Israeli spy Pollard on Nov. 21 | 28 July 2015 | Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst convicted of spying for Israel, will be released on parole on Nov. 21 after 30 years in prison, a federal parole board ruled on Tuesday. Pollard's planned release, which was quickly welcomed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would remove a longstanding irritant in U.S.-Israel relations at a time of increased friction between the two close allies over President Barack Obama's landmark nuclear deal with Iran. The U.S. Justice Department helped smooth the way for the freeing of Pollard, who was already eligible for mandatory parole in November, by declining to raise objections that could have delayed his release, Pollard's attorneys said.

July 28, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. military sees more use of laser, microwave weapons | 28 July 2015 | The U.S. military has made strides in developing lasers, microwaves and other directed energy weapons, and could soon use them more widely, top armed forces officials and U.S. lawmakers told an industry conference on Tuesday. The officials described weapons that are in various stages of development and testing by the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Army, but said more work was needed to scale up the technology for larger weapons, develop tactics for their use, and ensure sufficient funding. The military has been working on such weapons for decades, but says many technology challenges have finally been addressed.

U.S. Navy investigates report of cancer cluster at Guantanamo

July 28, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. Navy investigates report of cancer cluster at Guantanamo | 27 July 2015 | The U.S. Navy is investigating a complaint that seeks the evacuation of civilian and military lawyers from parts of the U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, following reports of cancer cases among personnel working on the trials of detainees prisoners there. At least seven civilians and military members who worked on detainee trials [sic] at Guantanamo Bay have been diagnosed with cancer, according to the complaint, which was filed with the U.S. Defense Department's Office of the Inspector General. The complaint calls on American military officials to remove personnel from court facilities on the base and test them and the base itself for carcinogens. The complaint claims that an unusually large number of relatively healthy and young people who worked at the base have been diagnosed with cancer. [As Shakespeare said--and the US government is apparently doing: "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."]

Holistic Hate Crimes? 8 Florida Doctors Dead and 5 Missing in Past Month

July 27, 2015 by legitgov

Holistic Hate Crimes? 8 Florida Doctors Dead and 5 Missing in Past Month --Holistic medicine: What a dangerous profession! Another Florida Doctor Murdered, Bringing Total to 8 Dead and 5 Missing in Just the Last Month | 24 July 2015 | Last week we reported on a number of doctors, many from the Southeastern U.S., who had been killed, died under questionable circumstances or had simply vanished without a trace. Just one week later, another three doctors have been reported dead, with one being found shot to death inside of his Florida home...Information about the five missing doctors can be found here. While all of these deaths could be nothing more than strange coincidences, we'd be remiss in not noting the fact that all of the doctors mentioned, sans Dr. Gonzales, practiced in the Southeastern United States, specifically in the Florida/Georgia region.

Huckabee: Barack Obama will march Israelis to 'the door of the oven' with Iran Deal

July 26, 2015 by legitgov

Huckabee: Barack Obama will march Israelis 'to the door of the oven' with Iran Deal | 26 July 2015 | Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee this weekend escalated the rhetoric over President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, saying that the pending agreement "will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven." The reference to the Holocaust -- in which Jews were killed in Nazi gas chambers and their bodies cremated in ovens -- created a backlash Sunday on Twitter, with numerous users condemning Huckabee's remarks. Huckabee, who is scrambling to gain attention in a 2016 presidential race dominated recently by GOP candidate Donald Trump, is known for being especially pro-Israel, even among a field of Republican candidates who voice support for the country. [My comment in the PentaPost's 'Comments' section: 'Washington Post' author of this article, Jerry Markon, is giving Mike Huckabee a pass with his deceptive story headline: "Huckabee: Iran nuclear deal will march Israelis 'to the door of the oven'." Huckabee said *Barack Obama* 'will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven' -- not the Iran deal itself. There is a universe of difference. Stop continuously covering for the GOP and the corporations that run it. (Here is the CLG version of the story: Huckabee: Barack Obama will march Israelis to 'the door of the oven' with Iran Deal.) --LRP]

7th Dead Doctor: Victim Found Among Five Slain in California | 22 July 2015 | A tragic rash of dead or missing doctors has happened over one month's time. Seven have either died under strange circumstances or were victims of brutal murders. There are also five who have simply vanished along with one medical lawyer...The previous dead or murdered doctors are as follows: Autism researcher Dr. Jeff Bradstreet; Dr. Bruce Hedendal, D.C., Ph.D.; Dr. Teresa A. Sievers; Lisa Riley D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic); young Dr. Baron Holt; and Dr. Ronald Schwartz. Five took place in Florida. Dr. Fitzpatrick, M.D. and Dr. Jeffrey R. Whiteside simply vanished (update: body found next to a gun). Three doctors and one hospital lawyer vanished in Mexico - law enforcement there allegedly attempted to pass off other dead bodies for the missing people in order to close the case. No sooner had I posted information about a sixth doctor found dead in one month's time, when someone sent me an Associated Press report about five female victims of a tragic massacre in Modesto, California.

AFL-CIO may delay endorsement of Clinton as 2016 presidential candidate - sources

July 25, 2015 by legitgov

AFL-CIO may delay endorsement of Clinton as 2016 presidential candidate - sources | 25 July 2015 | In a possible setback for Hillary Clinton, the AFL-CIO's political committee has recommended the nation's largest labor union federation delay endorsing a candidate for the 2016 presidential race as it seeks to push her to be more supportive of its policies on issues such as 'trade' and wages. The committee on Monday voted unanimously to support the proposal, three union sources told Reuters. The recommendation will be presented at a July 29-30 meeting of the executive council of the federation, which will make the final decision. The move highlights the pressures Clinton is facing to take a tough stand against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a proposed free trade corporate takeover deal backed by President Barack Obama but vigorously opposed by unions who see it as detrimental to jobs and wages in the U.S. Unions also want her to back labor-friendly policies on other issues, such as the minimum wage and the Federal Reserve.

Currently around 300 soldiers from the Army's 173rd Airborne brigade are training Ukrainian national guard troops in the western part of the country. Those troops fall under Ukraine's Ministry of Interior and are not front line soldiers. This fall, however, the U.S. will begin training Ministry of Defense troops -- front-line units that have been fighting against separatists in the east of the country. The new training would bring the total security assistance provided to Ukraine to $244 million. [Start reading.]

The Dawn of Privacy-Driven Social Networks | 17 June 2015 | Privacy concerns in the wake of Edward Snowden disclosures have prompted new social networks to offer alternatives with a focus on user privacy. These companies are abstaining from selling user data and offering encrypted apps for their customers' communications. Manhattan-based Minds, which has run an alternative social media website for two years, just launched a lightweight social-network app for mobile...that encrypts all communications – so they are secure and anonymous (able to be read only by the intended recipient).
