Lawmakers rush to pass bill to aid Ukraine

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Insane in the membrane: Lawmakers rush to pass bill to aid Ukraine 27 Mar 2014 Lawmakers are rushing to get a bill to the president's desk that would provide $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine and sanction those who had a hand in Russia's takeover reunification of Crimea. The House and Senate were poised to pass versions of the legislation Thursday. Both sides said they want to get one bill to President Barack Obama's desk before the end of the week, but it was unclear whether the work would be finished by then. [Gotta fund those Blackwater mercenaries, somehow. Too bad the US highway system isn't in Kiev. Then, maybe, we could get a pothole fixed. The Koch suckers in Congress *always* vote to spend US tax dollars in any country run by an unelected dictator. That's why deficits soared under Bush, btw. --LRP]

Mudslide deaths expected to soar; some question disaster response 28 Mar 2014 Rescuers searching for 90 people still missing five days after a massive mudslide in Washington state braced the public on Thursday for an impending steep rise in the death toll even as they sought to deflect criticism about the early disaster response. At least 25 people are known to have died when a rain-soaked hillside collapsed without warning on Saturday, unleashing a wall of mud that engulfed dozens of homes in a river valley near the rural town of Oso, 55 miles northeast of Seattle. Snohomish County officials said that 17 casualties had been sent to the medical examiner's office as of Thursday evening.

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Lawyer hired by Christie blames bridge scandal on Bridget Kelly and David Wildstein 27 Mar 2014 At a packed news conference, Randy Mastro, the high-powered litigator hired by Gov. Chris Christie's office, repeatedly declared that his investigation found Christie "had no knowledge beforehand" of the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge and that the governor "played no role whatsoever in that decision" to close the lanes. Mastro then laid the blame for the now infamous lane closings squarely at the feet of two people only: Bridget Kelly, the governor's former deputy chief of staff and David Wildstein, a former Christie ally who held a high-ranking position at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

'This is USELESS': Satellite images, debris sightings and a chilling announcement but still no answers - as MH370 investigators reveal they may have been searching in the WRONG spot --Families growing increasingly frustrated at lack of physical evidence in MH370 investigation 27 Mar 2014 Grieving families of the 239 people on board missing Malaysian Airlines flight have rubbished a series of satellite images and search updates as 'useless' until something is found. Growing increasingly impatient and angry, the relatives of the passengers and crew won't let up on Malaysian authorities who remain tight-lipped on many of the specifics of their investigation into the tragedy. The latest lead in the baffling disappearance of the Boeing 777-200 came today from Australian search authorities who revealed that, acting on 'credible' new information, a team of aircraft and ships would shift their focus 1,100 kilometres north, around 1,850 kilometres west of Perth.

Activists urging UMN to revoke speaking invitation to Condoleezza Rice 27 Mar 2014 Student and faculty activists are joining forces to pressure the University of Minnesota to rescind a speaking invitation to former Secretary of State [war criminal] Condoleezza Rice, who is scheduled to deliver an April 17 lecture at Northrop Auditorium. Rice, who also was national security adviser under President [sic] George W. Bush, was invited months ago to deliver a speech on civil rights as part of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs' "Distinguished Carlson Lecture Series." But the University Senate has scheduled a vote next week on a resolution urging the school to disinvite Rice because of her role in the wartime policies of the Bush administration. Another of the critics' objections: her speaking fee of $150,000.

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. appeals court upholds new Texas abortion rules 27 Mar 2014 A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld Texas' tough abortion restrictions that have forced the closure of about 20 clinics around the state, saying the new rules don't jeopardize women's health. A panel of judges at the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court judge who said the rules violate the U.S. Constitution and serve no medical purpose. After the lower court's ruling, the appeals court allowed the restrictions to go into effect while it considered the case, which ultimately could end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Missing Malaysia Plane 'Was Travelling Faster'

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Missing Malaysia Plane 'Was Travelling Faster' --Radar data suggest flight MH370 did not travel as far south as previously thought, forcing investigators to refocus their search. 28 Mar 2014 The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has shifted after data suggested it was travelling faster than previously thought. Analysis of radar from before contact with flight MH370 was lost indicates the plane was burning up fuel more quickly and may not have travelled as far south over the Indian Ocean. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau described the data as the "most credible lead to where debris may be located". [Yeah, there were too many Internet posts on the plane being harbored at Diego Garcia, so investigators are *finally* looking at the three-week-old radar data. --LRP]

Obama defends U.S. invasion of Iraq while criticizing Russia 26 Mar 2014 President Barack Obama defended the American invasion of Iraq Wednesday in a high-profile speech to address the Russian takeover of Crimea. Russian officials, Obama noted, have pointed to the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq as an example of "Western hypocrisy." Obama struggled, however, in his attempt to defend the legality of the invasion. The war was unsanctioned by the United Nations, and many experts assert it violated any standard reading of international law. The war was unsanctioned by the United Nations, and many experts assert it violated any standard reading of international law. "We did not grab its [Iraq's] resources for our own gain," Obama argued. In fact, the U.S. forced Iraq to privatize its oil industry, which had previously been under the control of the state, and further required that it accept foreign ownership of the industry.

U.S. top court signals support for corporate religious claims

March 25, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. top court signals support for corporate religious claims 25 Mar 2014 The U.S. Supreme Court signaled on Tuesday it may allow corporations to mount religious objections to government action, possibly paving the way for companies to avoid covering employees' birth control as required under Obamacare. During a 90-minute oral argument, 30 minutes more than usual, a majority of the nine justices appeared ready to rule that certain for-profit entities have the same religious rights to object as individuals do. A ruling along those lines would likely only apply to closely held companies.
