July 19, 2015 by legitgov

As American Infrastructure Crumbles, Israel Signals May Ask for More US Military Aid Over Iran Deal | 18 July 2015 | Israel signalled on Friday that it would ask the United States for increased military aid to 'counter any threats' that may arise as result of the international agreement on Iran's nuclear programme. Israel [insanely] gets $3 billion in annual military aid from Washington under a package due to expire in 2017 and has in recent years secured hundreds of millions of dollars in additional U.S. funding for missile defence. Israel and the United States had been in talks on future grants but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suspended them in the run-up to Tuesday's agreement which curtailed Iran's nuclear projects, which he condemned as insufficient.

July 19, 2015 by legitgov

$500M US Program Has Only Trained 60 Syrians to Fight ISIS | 07 July 2015 | Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that only 60 so-called "moderate" Syrian rebels terrorists were currently being trained by the U.S. in the $500 million program that had been slated to put 3,000 fighters into the field against [sic] ISIS [I-CIA-SIS] by the end of this year. Carter told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he regretted disclosing that the number was so low but "I wanted to tell the truth. The number 60, as you all recognize, is not an impressive number." The $500 million Syrian training program authorized by Congress was intended to train and equip up to 5,400 fighters annually, with about 3,000 projected to be ready by the end of this year.

House Republicans Fast-Track Bill to Prevent States from Labeling GMO Foods

July 19, 2015 by legitgov

House Republicans Fast-Track Bill to Prevent States from Labeling GMO Foods | 16 July 2015 | Republicans [corpora-terrorist trolls] in the U.S. House have swiftly moved to adopt legislation that would prohibit states from adopting laws requiring labels on food containing genetically modified organisms (GMO). The House Committee on Agriculture Agribusiness this week approved HR 1599, which would create a voluntary federal labeling standard while also preventing states from forcing companies to put GMO labels on their foods. The bill, which cleared the committee without debate, is now headed to the House floor. Critics have called HR 1599 the "Mother of All Monsanto Protection Acts" after the company that has long opposed GMO labels, as well as the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. [I'm sure Monsanto troll Obama can't wait to sign off on this one, too. Only full-blown rebellion can save us now...]

Military Site Shootings Crystallize FBI Terrorism Concerns

July 18, 2015 by legitgov

Military Site Shootings Crystallize FBI Terrorism Concerns | 18 July 2015 | The deadly shootings at military sites in Tennessee illustrate the threat that FBI officials have warned about: violence directed against a vulnerable government target by a lone gunman with apparent terrorist aspirations. The FBI has not detailed a motive, but Thursday's attacks that killed four Marines and one sailor are under investigation as a potential act of terrorism, with authorities combing through the gunman's past to look for travel, contacts and online writings. The rampage unfolded as the federal government has raised alarms about the online spread of terrorist propaganda, including repeated exhortations by groups such as the Islamic State for sympathizers to target police officers and military installations.

White House distances itself from Glass-Steagall push [Of course it does.] | 17 July 2015 | The [TPP-pimping] White House wants to keep its distance from a liberal push to re-implement legislation that would break up big banks. Progressives like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) are calling for a reimplementation of Glass-Steagall, which would require big banks to divide commercial and investment banking. Earlier this month, Warren brought back legislation that would re-implement the law.

Recall the Recall Truth: Scott Walker's Stolen Elections

Recall the Recall Truth: Scott Walker's Stolen Elections | 12 July 2015 | Last week, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker released a video called, Recall the Recall. It presents Walker as an all-powerful [2016 GOP presidential] candidate with impeccable credentials, because he has "won" 3 elections in four years...But what Scott Walker absolutely does not want you to remember is that the vote totals from his 2012 recall (and 2014 re-election) appear to be fraudulent, violating the most basic principles of math: The Law of Large Numbers...

Barack Obama becomes first president to visit US prison --Barack Obama says that the US criminal justice system needs to distinguish between young people who make mistakes and those who are truly dangerous [Right, so spring Chelsea Manning, Jeremy Hammond, Barrett Brown, etc. - and ensure that Julian Assange and Edward Snowden are free!] | 16 July 2015 | Barack Obama became the first sitting US president to visit a federal prison on Thursday, amid a push to reform America's overcrowded and expensive correctional system. Obama toured the "B" block of El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in Oklahoma, where he met six inmates convicted of drug offenses. Nearly a quarter of the world's prison population is concentrated in American jails. However, the United States accounts for less than five percent of the world's population. Obama wants to cut the number of people incarcerated, curb use of solitary confinement and end mandatory minimum sentences.

NSA document: Israeli special forces assassinated top Syrian military official | 17 July 2015 | Evidence has emerged from leaked US signals intelligence intercepts that Israeli special forces were responsible for assassinating a senior Syrian military official who was a close adviser to President Bashar al-Assad. Brig Gen Mahmoud Suleiman was shot dead on a beach near the northern Syrian port of Tartus in August 2008. The Guardian reported at the time that the seaside murder was perpetrated by a sniper firing from a yacht moored offshore. [The terrorist state of] Israel has never commented publicly on suspicions that it was involved.

Secretive military operation 'Jade Helm' gets underway across seven states --Jade Helm 15, a two-month, seven state war simulation began on Wednesday in central Texas --The Army has said that exercise locations were selected to replicate foreign combat zones | 16 July 2015 | The U.S. military began its secretive two-month, seven-state military exercise on Wednesday in Texas, as conspiracy theorists prepared for the worst. 'Jade Helm 15', as the war simulation is known, is acknowledged by the Army as unique given its size and scope, but they insist there is nothing to fear. Parts of Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Texas and Utah, were selected for the operation as their topography is ideal to replicate diverse foreign combat zones. However, suspicions intensified after some conservative political websites seized on an Army map that labeled Texas and Utah as 'hostile' for the purposes of the simulation.

Polar bear metabolism cannot cope with ice loss

Polar bear metabolism cannot cope with ice loss --The Arctic mammals may not survive the ongoing loss of their hunting grounds. | 16 July 2015 | Polar bears' metabolism does not slow very much during the summer months when sea ice melts and food becomes scarce, according to a study published today (16 July) in Science. With the Arctic warming faster than the global average, the finding does not bode well for the bears (Ursus maritimus), who use the ice as a hunting ground. The Arctic ice is melting earlier each summer and freezing later each winter, limiting the animals' chances to catch seals. With no way to save energy, polar bears are unlikely to survive the continued sea-ice loss caused by rising temperatures, says Merav Ben-David, a wildlife ecologist at the University of Wyoming in Laramie and a co-author of the study.

Car explodes near high-security Saudi prison, driver killed: ministry | 16 July 2015 | A car bomb exploded at a checkpoint near Saudi Arabia's highest security prison at sunset on Thursday, killing the driver and wounding two security officials, the interior ministry said. State television said the driver was a teenager on the run after killing his uncle. He triggered the blast after officers surrounded his vehicle south of the capital, Riyadh. The use of an explosive so close to a prison holding hundreds of Islamist detainees will stoke fears of a growing threat of militancy in the world's top oil exporter [and beheaders].
