The new article 22(1) added to the charter regulating service in the armed forces of Ukraine states that commanders "have the right to personally use physical force, special means, and weapons when in combat" against soldiers who commit "criminal acts."

February 5, 2015 by legitgov

Flu Vaccine Doesn't Work in Europe, Either | 5 Feb 2015 | The [mercury-laden, dangerous] flu vaccine, which hasn't worked well to protect Americans against influenza, isn't helping in Europe, either. The same mutated version of flu is circulating in Britain and other European countries this winter, and it's only protected about 3 percent of those vaccinated, British health officials estimate. That's even worse than in the U.S., where federal health officials say the vaccine reduced disease risk by 23 percent.

Paris bans filming of action movies following recent terror attacks --Scenes featuring religious sites or schools are also banned under the emergency security plans. | 5 Feb 2015 | Restrictions have been placed on filming action movies in Paris following the recent terrorist attacks. Police officials have revealed fears that "actors in uniform could be targets for terrorists" in the wake of the attack on a 'satirical' magazine which left 20 dead including three gunmen. "There's a problem with these action-type scenes, as the actors in uniform could be targets for terrorists," Sylvie Barnaud, the police official who grants outside filming permission in Paris, told The Associated Press. "Also, the actors could pose confusion for the general public - during this highly sensitive period.' [Yeah, gotta keep the crisis actors separated from the actual actors. --LRP]

30,000 troops, 6 Rapid Deployment Force units: NATO increases military power in Eastern Europe | 5 Feb 2015 | The NATO Response Force in Europe might increase to 30,000 troops, more than double the current 13,000, said the alliance's secretary general after a defense ministers' meeting in Brussels. Most of the troops are set to be stationed near Russia's borders. NATO's rapid deployment forces will consist of a 5,000-strong brigade, sea and air-based elements and special task troops, said NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg after meeting with the alliance's 28 defense ministers in Brussels on Thursday. The UK has already announced plans to deploy 1,000 troops and four multirole Typhoon fighter jets to join the Response Force in Eastern Europe.

February 5, 2015 by legitgov

Ministry of Defence releases heavily redacted report identifying weaponised Ebola scenarios | 2 Feb 2015 | British military experts were asked to draw up guidance at the height of the Ebola outbreak in west Africa late last year on the feasibility and potential impact of terrorists "weaponising" the virus. The Ministry of Defence has released a heavily redacted report, prepared in October, that identified three scenarios involving the exploitation of Ebola for bioterrorism. Details of the first scenario are entirely blacked out, as are most of those of the second, which is described as "logistically and technically challenging for a non-state group to undertake". The third scenario -- details of which were also heavily redacted -- was described as the "most technically challenging".

February 5, 2015 by legitgov

4,000 errors in inspection records at Japan's Onagawa nuclear plant | 4 Feb 2015 | Tohoku Electric Power Company says it has found more than 4,000 improper entries in its inspection records about one of the reactors at its Onagawa nuclear power plant. The initial inspection was held to check a wide range of facilities at the plant's No. 2 reactor after the great earthquake that hit northeastern Japan. The operator is hoping to restart the reactor about 100 kilometers north of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi plant. But Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority pointed out last year that Tohoku Electric's inspection was lax and the firm was re-examining the inspection records on the No. 2 reactor.

Big money helped Minnesota GOP flip House

February 4, 2015 by legitgov

Big money helped Minnesota GOP flip House | 4 Feb 2015 | Republicans and their campaign allies, often financially outmatched in recent years by a cash-rich DFL machine, focused their resources on a relatively small number of key and expensive state House races and the gamble paid off, according to campaign finance reports made public Tuesday. The reports show that of the 10 most expensive statehouse races in 2014, Republicans won seven -- the exact number they needed to take the majority, plus four others for good measure. The price tag on a couple of those races topped $750,000 in independent expenditures alone, not counting what the candidates themselves spent.

Jordan hangs two Iraqi militants in response to pilot's death | 4 Feb 2015 | Jordan hanged two Iraqi jihadists on Wednesday including a female militant in response to an Islamic State video appearing to show a captured Jordanian pilot being burnt alive by the hardline group.

Sentenced to death in 2005 for her a role in a suicide bomb attack in Amman, Rishawi was executed at dawn, a security source and state television said. Authorities also executed a senior al Qaeda prisoner, an Iraqi man who was sentenced to death in 2008.

Islamic State purportedly shows burning of hostage, Jordan vows 'earth-shaking' response | 3 Feb 2015 | Islamic State militants released a video on Tuesday appearing to show a captured Jordanian pilot being burnt alive in a cage, a killing that shocked the world and prompted Jordan to promise an "earth-shaking" response.

Dozens of foster parents to forgo licenses over forced flu shots

February 4, 2015 by legitgov

Dozens of foster parents to forgo licenses over forced flu shots | 2 Feb 2015 | Dozens of Washington state foster parents say they’ll give up their licenses to care for kids from birth to age 2 rather than get flu shots mandated by a new regulation. Some foster parents said they object to the influenza vaccine because they believe it is "experimental" and poses potential side effects. Others said they simply don't like being told to inoculate themselves and their biological kids, and they worry that the regulation will worsen a growing shortage of foster families..."The vaccine itself has risks and is no guarantee that one will not come down with the illness," Ann Marie Henninger, a registered nurse in Sequim, wrote. "This decision is not evidence-based and will result in the loss of countless foster families who will raise their age limit of dependent children accepted rather than submit to the government mandate that they vaccinate their families against their will and better judgment."

Chris Christie Shows Fondness for Luxury Benefits When Others Pay the Bill | 2 Feb 2015 | As Gov. Chris Christie (R) of New Jersey waited to depart on a trade mission to Israel in 2012, his entourage was delayed by a late arrival: Mr. Christie's father, who had accidentally headed to the wrong airport. A commercial flight might have left without him, but in this case, there was no rush. The private plane, on which Mr. Christie had his own bedroom, had been lent by Sheldon G. Adelson, the billionaire c-sino owner and supporter of Israel...King Abdullah of Jordan picked up the tab for a Christie family weekend at the end of the trip. But a small knot of aides fretted: The rooms in luxurious Kempinski hotels had cost about $30,000; what would happen if that became public?

The 21 curious questions we're never allowed to ask about vaccines

February 3, 2015 by legitgov

The 21 curious questions we're never allowed to ask about vaccines | 1 Feb 2015 | The surest sign of a medical dictatorship is an aggressively enforced blockade against intelligent questions. Intelligent questions, after all, can destroy a medical police state because they expose the fraud of it. Intelligent questions -- which the vaccine industry characterizes as "dangerous" -- are the greatest threat to the vaccine delusions still being played out across the world today, which is precisely why such questions are not allowed to be asked. Those daring to ask such questions are now being threatened with mass arrest and imprisonment -- that's how vulnerable the fraudulent vaccine industry has now become. It can be brought down by mere words if only those words are allowed to be circulated.

US 'considers arming Ukrainian army' as fighting continues in the east | 2 Feb 2015 | The spectre of a deepening proxy war in Ukraine involving both Russia and the United States has raised its head after reports that the White House is considering supplying weapons to Kiev. Washington has so far refused to supply weapons to the pro-Western Ukrainian government but reports suggest that a growing number of President Barack Obama's advisors are now warming to the idea. According to the New York Times, General Philip Breedlove, Nato's military commander, supports providing arms and equipment to Ukraine's hard-pressed [Nazi] forces, which are struggling to quell an uprising led by Russian-backed separatists.

NSA Utah Data Center using more water | 2 Feb 2015 | More water poured into the National Security Agency's Utah Data Center in 2014 than in previous years, but the facility is still paying for water that it is not using.

Hagel's comments echoed testimony by General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to Congress last fall when he said U.S. troops might have to take a larger role on the ground in Iraq.
