Missing Flight MH370: AirAsia pilot suspended for claiming Kuala Lumpur is 'hiding facts' 28 Mar 2014 A senior AirAsia pilot has been suspended for suggesting in a Fbook post Malaysian authorities have been "hiding facts" about the disappearance of MH370. "The supposed debris…isn't even confirmed to be from the plane yet! Show us the proof and then tell us MH370 has crashed," wrote the pilot from the Kuala Lumpur-based airline. "Till then stop hiding the facts! It's obvious even to a blind man that there are tons of info the government definitely knows and isn't sharing yet!," he wrote. AirAsia's chief executive officer Tony Fernandes tweeted the senior first officer who he did not name had been suspended pending an investigation.

Malaysia did not check passport database prior to plane disappearance: Interpol 29 Mar 2014 The international police agency Interpol said on Friday that Malaysia's immigration department had not checked passengers' passports against its database at all this year prior to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. As a result, two passengers with stolen Austrian and Italian passports were able to board the plane, which vanished over the South China Sea on March 8, Interpol said in a statement.

March 29, 2014 by legitgov

Malaysian Air, Boeing Data on Plane Sought in U.S. Court 26 Mar 2014 Malaysian Airline System Bhd. and Boeing Co. records of Flight 370's maintenance and crew are being sought by a law firm representing the uncle of one of the missing plane's passengers, the opening salvo in what may become a barrage of litigation over its disappearance...

"We believe that both defendants named are responsible for the disaster of Flight MH370," Monica Kelly, a partner in the Chicago-based firm Ribbeck Law Chartered, said in a statement announcing the filing yesterday in Illinois state court in Chicago.

YouTube ban: How Turkish officials conspired to stage Syria attack to provoke war

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

YouTube ban: How Turkish officials conspired to stage Syria attack to provoke war 28 Mar 2014 "I'll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey." This leaked conversation is coming back to haunt the highest echelons of the Turkish government as it plans a provocation in Syria, while scrambling to contain social media internally. The leaked audiotapes that reveal Turkey's highest ministers staging an anti-Assad military intervention in Syria, have already caused YouTube to be shut down in the country, as well as leading to fevered accusations of treachery and betrayal of Turkey's political interests -- "a declaration of war," as Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu put it.

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

'There's sealed evidence on MH370 that cannot be made public' - Malaysian air force general 26 Mar 2014 A Malaysian team have told relatives of Chinese passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 that there was sealed evidence that cannot be made public, as they came under fire from the angry relatives at a briefing on Wednesday. The sealed evidence included air traffic control radio transcript, radar data and airport security recordings. The briefing at the Metropark Lido Hotel in Beijing focused on UK satellite analysis which led Malaysia to conclude that flight MH370 ended in south Indian Ocean, off Perth.

Turkey blocks YouTube after 'Syria invasion plan' leak 28 Mar 2014 Access to YouTube has been cut off in Turkey after an explosive leak of audiotapes that appeared to show ministers talking about provoking military intervention in Syria. Other social media have already been blocked ahead of tumultuous local elections. The latest leaked audio recording, which reportedly led to the ban, appears to show top government officials discussing a potential attack on the tomb of Suleyman Shah, the grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman Empire.

California senate suspends three lawmakers in criminal probes

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

California senate suspends three lawmakers in criminal probes 28 Mar 2014 The California state Senate suspended three Democratic lawmakers on Friday who have been the subject of criminal probes, including Leland Yee, who was arrested this week in an FBI sweep on corruption and gun trafficking charges. The Senate voted 28-1 to suspend the three, all of whom have been charged with or convicted of criminal wrongdoing in separate cases, in a move that further erodes what had once been a Democratic two-thirds super-majority in the Senate. The suspensions with pay, the first in state history from the senate, deal a major blow to Democrats in an election year as they seek to use large majorities in both houses of the state legislature and all statewide offices to push through key projects. [That's why Obusha's DOJ went after them. Now, corporate trolls will call the shots - and Obama's fine with that.]

Russian Senator seeks to strip President Obama of Nobel over double standards

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Russian Senator seeks to strip President Obama of Nobel over double standards 24 Mar 2014 A Russian senator has asked the Nobel Committee to annul the award given to the US President last year claiming Barack Obama's double standard policy has helped develop the political crisis in Ukraine. "The double standard policy is incompatible with the title of Nobel Peace Prize laureate. I think the Nobel committee must take an objective look at the situation and consider the possibility of taking the title from Barack Obama," Senator Lyudmila Bokova (Saratov Region) was quoted as saying by the Izvestia daily. "The latest statements and activities of Mr. Obama are clearly aimed against the non-violent solution of the Ukrainian crisis. Besides, the US President is pursuing the objective of world domination and the interests of the Ukrainian people is the last thing to be taken into consideration by him," the Russian politician said.

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Southington, Conn. Schools in 'Precaution' Lockdown --Schools went into an 'exterior lock' protocol. 27 Mar 2014 A domestic disturbance [!?] that spilled out of a home Tuesday on a street near several schools prompted a brief lockdown of the high school and three other schools, officials said. "We did this as an extreme precaution," Superintendent Joseph Erardi said Thursday. "It lasted about 20 minutes. There was absolutely no danger to our school at any point of this." The event lasted from 11:45 am to 12:05 p.m. Tuesday.

US forces on nuclear 'false flag' high alert - analyst

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

US forces on nuclear 'false flag' high alert - analyst By Gordon Duff 28 Mar 2014 The United States is on alert and has deployed military assets to defend the Atlantic coastline from New York to Charleston from attack by a cruise type missile or low flying aircraft. Heightened security measures began with Israel's increasing threats against Iran but increased with the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370. Sources at the highest levels of the US military and intelligence community cite the possibility of a terror bombing, even using nuclear weapons, most likely to be submarine launched.

Christie bridge scandal: Internal report clears governor, but Democrats have questions

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Christie bridge scandal: Internal report clears governor, but Democrats have questions 28 Mar 2014 It ran hundreds of pages, and found the governor did absolutely nothing wrong, nor did anyone on his current staff. It cost a reported $1 million in taxpayer dollars -- likely much, much more, but no one is saying just how much yet. And it blamed the entire fiasco on two people who were never interviewed. A report commissioned by Gov. Chris Christie to look into the scandals that have engulfed his administration was released Thursday -- after portions of it were leaked earlier in the week -- completely exonerating the governor and drawing immediate criticism from Democrats and others who called it a whitewash.

U.S. will recognize 300 same-sex couples who married in Michigan

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. will recognize 300 same-sex couples who married in Michigan 28 Mar 2014 The federal government will officially recognize about 300 same-sex couples in Michigan who wed before such marriages were put on hold by the courts, Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. announced Friday. Last Friday, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman struck down Michigan's gay marriage ban but refused to issue the stay. That allowed about 300 couples to marry on Saturday before the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ordered a temporary halt the same day by issuing an emergency stay. The appeals court on Tuesday then made the stay permanent, pending a review of the case.

Chris Christie holds first news conference in 76 days 28 Mar 2014 Gov. Chris Christie is scheduled to hold his first news conference in 76 days today, speaking from the Statehouse at 2:30 p.m. It comes one day after the law firm his office hired to conduct an internal investigation into the George Washington Bridge scandal released a 360-page review that cleared the Republican governor of any involvement.

Port Authority Chairman David Samson resigns - Christie

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Chris Christie confirms Port Authority chairman David Samson has quit 28 Mar 2014 The governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, announced on Friday that the chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, David Samson, has resigned. Samson refused to be interviewed for an inquiry commissioned by Christie over the politically motivated closure of lanes leading to the George Washington bridge, a key link between New Jersey and New York that comes under the control of the Port Authority, last year. The inquiry, by the law firm Gibson Dunn and Crutcher, published on Thursday, recommended that the Port Authority be reformed. But it left unanswered questions over the role of Samson in the lane closures and their aftermath.

Afghanistan is an occupied nation, Iranian president says on Kabul visit

March 28, 2014 by legitgov

Afghanistan is an occupied nation, Iranian president says on Kabul visit 27 Mar 2014 The Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, described Afghanistan as an occupied nation while in Kabul to celebrate the Persian new year on Thursday, saying Soviet and Nato forces had brought violence and extremism to the country. Relations with the west have warmed slightly since Rouhani took office, but Iran has always been unhappy about having a US presence on its doorstep and is strongly opposed to a draft security agreement that would keep US troops in Afghanistan for another decade. Rouhani did not refer directly to the US or Nato, whose troops have been fighting on Afghan soil for over a decade, but his comments about "two occupations" left little room for doubt.

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.

Lawyer hired by Christie blames bridge scandal on Bridget Kelly and David Wildstein

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

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.

Manning Lawyer Wants WikiLeaks Conviction Reversed 27 Mar 2014 Convicted leaker Chelsea Manning is asking an Army general to reverse her conviction and 35-year prison sentence for sending reams of classified information to WikiLeaks. Defense attorney David Coombs says in a statement issued late Wednesday that he had taken the procedural step in the court-martial of the private previously known as Bradley Manning. Under military law, Military District of Washington commander Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan can reverse or reduce the results of last year’s court-martial.

U.S. appeals court upholds new Texas abortion rules

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]

TSA wants armed police at airport checkpoints 26 Mar 2014 The Transportation Security Administration is proposing that armed law-enforcement officers help guard airport checkpoints during busy times, in reaction to the November shooting of a TSA officer [false flag] in Los Angeles. TSA Administrator John Pistole said the proposal followed a comprehensive review, after a gunman killed TSA Officer Gerardo Hernandez and wounded three others at Los Angeles International Airport. A 26-page report released Wednesday made 14 recommendations, including having a police presence at checkpoints and ticket counters during peak travel times.

NINE Air Force commanders fired and dozens of officers disciplined over nuclear exam cheating scandal --It involved unauthorized passing of answers to exams designed to test missile launch officers' proficiency in handling 'emergency war orders' 27 Mar 2014 The Air Force has fired nine mid-level nuclear commanders and will discipline dozens of junior officers at a nuclear missile base in Montana after an exam-cheating scandal that spanned two years. Air Force officials called the moves unprecedented in the history of the intercontinental ballistic missile force. None of the nine commanders fired from Malmstrom Air Force Base were directly involved in the cheating, but each was determined to have failed in his or her leadership responsibilities.

Official Said He Told Christie of Lane Closings, Bridge Scandal Report Says

March 27, 2014 by legitgov

Official Said He Told Christie of Lane Closings, Bridge Scandal Report Says 28 Mar 2014 The Port Authority official who oversaw the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge said he informed Gov. Chris Christie about it at a Sept. 11 memorial while the closings were occurring, according to the findings of an internal investigation released by lawyers for the governor on Thursday. The official, David Wildstein, told Mr. Christie's press secretary, Michael Drewniak, of the Sept. 11 conversation at a dinner in December just before his resignation from the Port Authority, according to the report. The report said that Mr. Christie did not recall any such conversation, and it found no evidence that he was involved in the scheme, which snarled traffic for thousands of commuters in Fort Lee, N.J., from Sept. 9 through the morning of Sept. 12.

TEPCO under-calculated radiation exposure for 142 Fukushima workers

March 27, 2014 by legitgov

TEPCO under-calculated radiation exposure for 142 Fukushima workers 27 Mar 2014 Tokyo Electric Power Co. underestimated internal radiation exposure of 142 workers involved in immediate emergency operations at the damaged Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in March 2011, according to Japan's Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry. After reexamining exposure records provided by TEPCO, the Ministry said Tuesday it had increased the 142 workers' radiation data by an average of 5.86 millisieverts, The Asahi Shimbun reported.

Research into muttonbird exposure to Fukushima radiation 27 Mar 2014 Scientists from the University of Auckland will undertake research to test whether New Zealand muttonbirds that spend the winter off the coast of Japan may have been exposed to radiation from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant. The new research is being funded by the Lottery Health Research fund with $26,028 for a pilot study to investigate whether radioactive cesium has entered the New Zealand ecosystem or food chain via the birds. Researchers will test the birds' feathers for gamma rays that indicate the presence of the radioactive isotope cesium-134.

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.
