President Obama vetoes Keystone XL pipeline | 24 Feb 2015 | President Barack Obama, exercising his veto power for the first time in five years, rejected on Tuesday a measure green-lighting the construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. Obama's veto of the bill comes after a yearlong debate on the controversial pipeline which ultimately handed a legislative victory to proponents of the pipeline after Republicans took control of the Senate in January. Obama has said his top concern in making a decision will be "does it contribute to the greenhouse gases that are causing climate change [global warming]."

Sharpton paid to keep quiet about lack of black TV programming: lawsuit

February 25, 2015 by legitgov

FBI snitch, corporatist, and attention-getting wh*re Al Sharpton finally outed for the fraud he is and has always been: Sharpton paid to keep quiet about lack of black TV programming: lawsuit | 23 Feb 2015 | The Rev. Al Sharpton's silence was bought for a cool $3.8 million -- so that he wouldn't complain about the lack of black cable TV programming, an explosive $20 billion lawsuit alleges. The National Association of African-American Owned Media claims Comcast paid Sharpton and his National Action Network "cash 'donations'" in exchange for not screaming about its lack of solely black-owned channels. The cable giant also assured that the activist would keep his $750,000-a-year gig as a host on MSNBC, which it co-owns, even as his ratings slump, the suit alleges.

February 24, 2015 by legitgov

No federal civil rights charges in Trayvon Martin case | 24 Feb 2015 | Three years after teen Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla., setting off a national debate on race and gun laws, the Department of Justice announced Monday it had concluded that there is not enough evidence to bring civil rights charges in the case. In its press release about the decision, the lack of charges against Zimmerman are said to be a result of being unable to meet the standard of proving that the "defendant knew his acts were unlawful, and committed those acts in open defiance of the law." ...Acting Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta of the Civil Rights Division said: "Our decision not to pursue federal charges does not condone the shooting that resulted in the death of Trayvon Martin and is based solely on the high legal standard applicable to these cases."

February 24, 2015 by legitgov

Israel cuts off electricity to thousands of West Bank Palestinians | 23 Feb 2015 | Israel's electric company cut off power Monday to more than 700,000 Palestinians in two major West Bank cities and nearby villages, and warned that more outages are coming if Palestinian officials don't pay millions of dollars in outstanding debt. The outage in Nablus, the largest West Bank city, and Jenin, to the north, lasted about an hour, but could become a regular part of West Bank life if the Palestinian Authority and the local electric utilities don't pay their bills, the Israel Electric Corp. (IEC) warned. Palestinian officials described the IEC move as a political step and collective punishment against the Palestinian people after the Palestinian Authority joined the Hague-based International Criminal Court last month.

Iraqi Army Downs 2 UK Planes Carrying Weapons for ISIL --Iraqi lawmaker says US prefers chaotic situation in Anbar Province -- which is near cities of Karbala and Baghdad -- as it does not want ISIL crisis to come to an end | 23 Feb 2015 | Iraq's army has shot down two British planes as they were carrying weapons for the ISIL terrorists in Al-Anbar province, a senior lawmaker disclosed on Monday. "The Iraqi Parliament's National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL," Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, according to a Monday report of the Arabic-language information center of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq. He said the Iraqi parliament has asked London for explanations in this regard. The senior Iraqi legislator further unveiled that the government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from people and security forces in al-Anbar province on numerous flights by the US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas.

UK Warning to Judge in Terror Trial

February 24, 2015 by legitgov

UK Warning to Judge in Terror Trial | 23 Feb 2015 | A British government official has warned a New York judge of "grave" consequences if MI5 agents testifying in the trial of an alleged al Qaeda terrorist are identified from court illustrations. Several MI5 agents are due to give evidence in the coming days in the trial of Abid Naseer, a Pakistani student accused of plotting bomb attacks on the Arndale Centre in Manchester, the New York subway and targets in Copenhagen. The agents will be identified only by number, and will appear in "light disguise", expected to include make-up and in some cases wigs, in an attempt to protect their identities while allowing the jury to gauge their facial expressions. The intervention from the unnamed British official came as US District Judge Raymond Dearie considered a prosecution request that the agents' faces should not be drawn accurately by court artists.

Judge rules Gov. Chris Christie broke state law by not making full pension payments | 23 Feb 2015 | Problems keep mounting for GOP presidential hopeful Chris Christie...On Monday, a New Jersey judge landed a blow to the heart of Christie's political brand: his tough stance against government spending and public employee unions.

She also ordered Christie to work with the legislature to satisfy the state's obligation.

Leaked cables show Netanyahu's Iran bomb claim contradicted by Mossad

February 24, 2015 by legitgov

Leaked cables show Netanyahu's Iran bomb claim contradicted by Mossad | 23 Feb 2015 | Binyamin Netanyahu's dramatic declaration to world leaders in 2012 that Iran was about a year away from making a nuclear bomb was contradicted by his own secret service, according to a top-secret Mossad document. It is part of a cache of hundreds of dossiers, files and cables from the world's major intelligence services -- one of the biggest spy leaks in recent times. Brandishing a cartoon of a bomb with a red line to illustrate his point, the Israeli prime minister warned the UN in New York that Iran would be able to build nuclear weapons the following year and called for action to halt the process. But in a secret report shared with South Africa a few weeks later, Israel's intelligence agency concluded that Iran was "not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons".

The report added that the jihadists are preparing to establish a military committee that will oversee "Lebanese affairs" while "considering Lebanon as part of its state."

CIA looks to expand its cyber espionage capabilities

CIA looks to expand its cyber espionage capabilities | 23 Feb 2015 | CIA Director John O. Brennan is planning a major expansion of the agency's cyber espionage capabilities as part of a broad restructuring of an intelligence service long defined by its human spy work, current and former U.S. officials said. U.S. officials said Brennan's plans call for increased use of cyber capabilities in almost every category of operations -- whether identifying foreign officials to recruit as CIA informants, confirming the identities of targets of drone strikes or penetrating Internet-savvy adversaries such as the Islamic State. Several officials said that Brennan's team has even considered creating a new cyber directorate -- a step that would put the agency's technology experts on equal footing with the operations and analysis branches that have been pillars of the CIA's organizational structure for decades.

February 23, 2015 by legitgov

National security: Abbott would revoke citizenship as part of extremism fight | 23 Feb 2015 | In a national security speech on Monday, Tony Abbott outlined a series of planned counter-terrorism measures including the power to revoke citizenship in the case of dual nationals. Amendments to the Citizenship Act would allow the government to revoke or suspend the Australian citizenship of dual nationals, he said. And for individuals involved in terrorism who held only Australian citizenship, Abbott said he was considering "suspending some of the privileges of citizenship" such as "restricting the ability to leave or return to Australia, and access to consular services overseas, as well as access to welfare payments". The prime minister chose to deliver his long-awaited national security address at an event at the Australian federal police (AFP) headquarters in Canberra, rather than to parliament.

Liam Fox: It is time to arm Ukraine | 21 Feb 2015 | Britain must arm Ukraine in order to halt Russian aggression, Liam Fox has said. Writing in The Sunday Telegraph, the [deranged] former defence secretary warns that the West must "wake up" to the reality of the Kremlin's "clear strategic plan" to dominate Europe from the Baltics to the Balkans. European states must prioritise national security over welfare and foreign aid, and equip the Ukrainian government with anti-tank weapons, surveillance drones and encrypted technology, Dr Fox argues.

Bill O'Reilly twisted truth on 'war zone' account, says former CBS colleague | 22 Feb 2015 | Former colleagues of Bill O'Reilly who worked alongside the Fox News [sic] anchorman in Argentina as the Falklands War ended more than 30 years ago have contradicted his claims to have encountered a perilous situation in a "war zone".

Six other CBS journalists also challenge O'Reilly's claims, CNN reported on Sunday, adding further pressure on the 65-year-old host of the O'Reilly Factor.

A loophole in immigration law is costing thousands of American jobs

A loophole in immigration law is costing thousands of American jobs | 20 Feb 2015 | Imagine getting a layoff notice, then being ordered to train your replacement. That's what has happened to hundreds of information technology employees at Southern California Edison. Since last summer, Edison, which serves nearly 14 million customers, has been firing its domestic IT workers and replacing them with outsourced employees from India. In doing so, the utility is exploiting a gaping loophole in immigration law, which Congress has failed to close despite years of warnings that it's costing thousands of American jobs. Edison is using the [H-1B visa] program...to cut its wage costs, possibly by as much as 40%, according to data compiled by Ron Hira, a public policy expert at Howard University.

The heavily redacted document, which has been released under the Freedom of Information Act, reveals that the unit was asked last October to provide "guidance on the feasibility and potential impact of a non-state actor exploiting the Ebola outbreak in west Africa for bioterrorism".
