June 28, 2016 by legitgov

Donald Trump targets globalization and 'free trade' as job-killers | 28 June 2016 | While attacking Hillary Clinton and other career politicians, Donald Trump took aim Tuesday at two other prominent election targets: globalization and free [sic] trade. "Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very, very wealthy...but it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache," Trump told supporters during a prepared speech targeting 'free trade' in a nearly-shuttered former steel town in Pennsylvania. In a speech devoted to what he called "How To Make America Wealthy Again," Trump offered a series of familiar plans designed to deal with what he called "failed trade policies" -- including rejection of the proposed [deadly] Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with Pacific Rim nations and re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico, withdrawing from it if necessary.

FitzPatrick nuclear plant, the source of lake oil spill, shut down suddenly Friday | 27 June 2016 | (Scriba, NY) The FitzPatrick nuclear plant, the source of a visible oil slick on Lake Ontario, had to be shut down manually Friday after a loss of power caused water pumps to stop working.

A pump in the reactor cooling system also tripped offline, forcing operators to manually shut the reactor down at 12:36 p.m., the report said.

New doubts on Zika as cause of microcephaly; researchers investigating role of pesticide pyriproxyfen

June 28, 2016 by legitgov

New doubts on Zika as cause of microcephaly; researchers investigating role of pesticide pyriproxyfen | 24 June 2016 | Brazil's microcephaly epidemic continues to pose a mystery -- if Zika is the culprit, why are there no similar epidemics in other countries also hit hard by the virus? In Brazil, the microcephaly rate soared with more than 1,500 confirmed cases. But in Colombia, a recent study of nearly 12,000 pregnant women infected with Zika found zero microcephaly cases... In light of this evidence, New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI) says the cause of microcephaly in Brazil should be reconsidered. One possibility that has been raised is the pesticide pyriproxyfen, which is applied to drinking water [!] in some parts of Brazil to kill the larvae of the mosquitoes that transmit Zika.

Bernie Sanders demands Dem platform contain plank against 'disastrous' TPP trade deal after Clinton backers oppose tough language

Bernie Sanders demands Democratic platform contain plank against 'disastrous' TPP trade deal after Clinton backers oppose tough language --Notes that 'Hillary Clinton's representatives' opposed the move at platform meeting | 27 June 2016 | Bernie Sanders continued to quarrel with Hillary Clinton over the Democratic Party's platform Monday even as he has scaled back other elements of his political 'revolution,' demanding a clear vote against a Pacific trade bill corporate giveaway. The Vermont senator, who has yet to formally endorse Clinton, said in a statement urged the Democratic platform committee to 'take a stand' against the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiated by President Obama, a deal Sanders called 'disastrous.' Over the weekend, the platform committee rejected a move by Sanders appointee Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison to come out against the trade deal. Instead, it put in mushy language stating there are 'a diversity of views in the party' on the trade deal and said Democrats "must protect workers and the environment' – boilerplate language with which any Democrat would agree.

Bobby Wayne Guinn posted on Facebook that he had witnessed similar scenes in Texas. He wrote: 'Wondering why 30 United Nations vehicles, fully loaded with combat-prepared troops, were driving down our highway in Dallas, Texas.'

U.S. Supreme Court unanimously overturns former Va. Gov. Bob McDonnell's corruption convictions

June 27, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. Supreme Court unanimously overturns former Va. Gov. Bob McDonnell's corruption convictions | 27 June 2016 | The U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion Monday vacating former Gov. Bob McDonnell's corruption convictions and sent the case back to the lower appeals court... The unanimous opinion means that the convictions don't stand, but the opinion is not an acquittal. It means the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals must conclude whether evidence - under the Supreme Court's explanation of federal bribery law - is sufficient to allow a retrial. If the appeals court concludes that it is, federal prosecutors would then decide whether to retry McDonnell.

Supreme Court strikes down Texas abortion clinic restrictions

June 27, 2016 by legitgov

Supreme Court strikes down Texas abortion clinic restrictions | 27 June 2016 | The Supreme Court on Monday struck down Texas abortion restrictions that have been widely duplicated in other states, a resounding win for abortion rights advocates in the court's most important consideration of the controversial issue in 25 years. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy joined the court's liberals in the 5 to 3 decision, which said Texas's arguments that the clinic restrictions were to protect women's health were cover for making it more difficult to obtain an abortion. The challenged Texas provisions required doctors who perform abortions at clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital and said that clinics must meet hospital-like standards of surgical centers.

Stocks crash after UK's Brexit vote to quit EU shocks investors | 24 June 2016 | Stock markets crashed, oil prices tumbled and the pound fell to a 31-year low on Friday as Britain's unprecedented vote to leave the European Union shocked investors and dragged the region, the world's largest economic bloc, into a new era of uncertainty...

The move could drain confidence among companies and business in Britain and the wider EU, which some fear could even face more defections.
