Let Me Ask America a Question

April 15, 2016 by legitgov

Let Me Ask America a Question --Mr. Cruz loses when people actually get to cast ballots. Voter disenfranchisement is not merely part of the Cruz strategy--it is the Cruz strategy. By Donald J. Trump | 14 April 2016 | On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an "election" without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred. A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined. In recent days, something all too predictable has happened: Politicians furiously defended the system. "These are the rules," we were told over and over again...I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people.

Pentagon chief to sail aircraft carrier through disputed South China Sea | 15 April 2016 | China has accused the US of "sabotaging regional peace" after the Pentagon chief announced a military buildup in the Philippines, disputing Chinese territorial claims.

He added that US troops will have combat aircraft and helicopters at their disposal.

A Verizon worker: Why I'm striking

April 15, 2016 by legitgov

A Verizon worker: Why I'm striking By Isaac Collazo | 15 April 2016 | Verizon is pushing to eliminate good, middle-class jobs and make it impossible for someone like me, a technician with an associate's degree, to earn a decent living for my family in New York. Despite making $39 billion in profits over the last three years, Verizon is looking to outsource our work to low-wage contractors. That might make sense if you're trying to pump up short-term profits, but it'd be a disaster for our network and our customers. It takes years to learn our systems. You can't send some cut-rate contractor underground in Manhattan where I work. They’d have no clue what they were doing.

April 15, 2016 by legitgov

CIA 'Plan B' for Syria would give rebels MANPADs to 'counter Russia' - report | 13 April 2016 | A covert 'Plan B' for Syria reserved for a "violation of ceasefire" is being pushed to the US president, anonymous officials told media. Arming "moderate" Syrian rebels [aka I-CIA-SIS] with anti-aircraft weapons to fight the "Russia-backed regime" is again on the table. Back in February, the Wall Street Journal first reported that President Barack Obama's senior military and intelligence advisers were insisting that a back-up plan is necessary to "counter Russia" in Syria. The fresh details obtained by the WSJ suggest the CIA has given "provisional assurances" to coalition members to expand support to Syrian armed opposition groups fighting troops of President Bashar Assad.

April 13, 2016 by legitgov

Poll: Trump poised for delegate sweep in Maryland | 13 April 2016 | Donald Trump holds a 20-point lead over John Kasich in Maryland, setting the candidate to potentially take all 38 of the state’s delegates, according to a new poll.

The statewide winner in Maryland will claim 14 delegates, with the remaining 24 to be allocated in winner-take-all contests at the congressional district level. "If Trump's current level of support translates to each of Maryland's eight congressional districts, he may be able to run the table in the all-important delegate contest," said Monmouth pollster Patrick Murray.

Japan prepares for release of radioactive material from Fukushima nuclear plant | 12 April 2016 | The radioactive material, tritium, is nearly impossible to remove from the huge quantities of water used to cool melted-down reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, which was wrecked in March 2011.

Huge tanks lined up around the plant, at last count 1,000 of them, each hold hundreds of tons of water that have been cleansed of radioactive cesium and strontium but not of tritium...Calls to simply release the [radioactive] water into the Pacific Ocean are alarming many in Japan and elsewhere.

Trump asked during a rally in Rochester, N.Y. "Because the system is corrupt. And it's worse on the Republican side."

28 Pages: Former Senator Urges Declassification of Redacted Report That Holds 9/11 Secrets

28 Pages --Former Sen. Bob Graham and others urge the Obama administration to declassify redacted pages of a report that holds 9/11 secrets | 10 April 2016 | ('60 Minutes') White House and intelligence officials are reviewing whether to declassify one of the country's most sensitive documents -- known as the "28 pages." They have to do with 9/11 and the possible existence of a Saudi support network for the hijackers while they were in the U.S. For 13 years, the 28 pages have been locked away in a secret vault. Only a small group of people have ever seen them. Former U.S. Senator (D-Fla.) Bob Graham: I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn't speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many of whom didn't have a high school education-- could've carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States.

Trump's new top aide blasts Cruz for using 'Gestapo tactics' to win delegates and accuses the Texas senator of cheating | 10 April 2016 | He has been at the helm of Trump's delegate team for just three days, but Paul Manafort has already shown he will be pulling no punches when it comes to the candidate's rivals.

Manafort also suggested that the Texas senator's team have been resorting to threats and intimidation in order to secure backers. Asked whether threatening delegates in order to win them over was fair game, Manafort responded: 'It's not my style, and it's not Donald Trump's style, but it is Ted Cruz's style.'

Last main Brussels and Paris suspects held, threat remains

April 10, 2016 by legitgov

Last main Brussels and Paris suspects held, threat remains | 10 April 2016 | The main identified suspects in Islamic State attacks on Paris and Brussels are now dead or in custody after Belgian investigators charged two men on Saturday with aiding last month's Brussels suicide bombers. But while pleased with the performance of Belgium's hitherto much criticised security services, Prime Minister Charles Michel warned that further threats to Europe were still live...[Of course. Gotta keep those terror threats coming!] Mohamed Abrini, believed to have helped prepare the Nov. 13 Paris attacks, was seized on a Brussels street on Friday. Prosecutors said he confessed to being the "man in the hat" [LOL!] seen at the city's airport with two suicide bombers on March 22. [Yes, all can be ascribed to 'the man in the hat.' Because after carrying out one of the deadliest terror attacks in recent memory, the suspect wanted to keep right on wearing his unique identifiers--a ridiculous hat and bright white jacket--and then take a stroll around Brussels for several hours with seemingly nothing better to do other than to likely cash is I-CIA-SIS paycheck from Langley. Who believes this lunacy? --LRP]

Polar bears losing weight as Arctic sea ice melts, Canadian study finds

Polar bears losing weight as Arctic sea ice melts, Canadian study finds Between 1984 and 2009 the weight of female bears in Ontario fell by over 10% while global warming meant they had 30 fewer days a year to hunt seal on ice | 09 April 2016 | Three decades of melting sea ice has led to significant weight loss among the world's southernmost population of polar bears, new data from Canadian researchers suggests. "It's a red flag," said Martyn Obbard, a scientist with the Ontario provincial government and co-author of a recently published study in the journal Arctic Science. Researchers looked at a population of about 950 polar bears who live along the northern coast of Ontario, stretching from James Bay to the provincial border with Manitoba. As they live further south than any other population of polar bears, the group is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change global warming.
