Manning will be issued a new birth certificate to reflect the name change.

April 23, 2014 by legitgov

'Object of Interest' in Search for Missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 23 Apr 2014 An "object of interest" in the search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 has been recovered on the coast of Western Australia, several hours drive south of Perth, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Martin Dolan told CNN. "It's sufficiently interesting for us to take a look at the photographs," Dolan said, describing the object as appearing to be sheet metal with rivets. But Dolan also added strong words of caution: "The more we look at it, the less excited we get." [Check Diego Garcia for Flight MH370.]

Obama official responsible for copyright chapters of TPP and ACTA gets job at MPAA; his replacement is another copyright lobbyist

April 23, 2014 by legitgov

Obama official responsible for copyright chapters of TPP and ACTA gets job at MPAA; his replacement is another copyright lobbyist --When Obama was campaigning for office, he vowed that 'lobbyists won't work in my White House.' 23 Apr 2014 Stan McCoy is the assistant US Trade Representative who oversaw the creation of the disastrous, far-reaching copyright provisions in ACTA and the Trans Pacific Partnership. He's left the Obama administration for a high-paid job at the MPAA, which represents companies that stood to reap massive profits and permanent control over Internet governance and innovation thanks to his efforts while in government. Now, the Obama administration has headhunted a software industry lobbyist (who supported SOPA) to take over his job. McCoy is one of more than a dozen USTR officials who've left the government to work for copyright lobbying bodies, including former Obama copyright czar Victoria Espinel, who now gets her paycheck from the Business Software Alliance.

April 23, 2014 by legitgov

Fear of Christie's ties to U.S. Attorney kept Hoboken mayor from reporting alleged Sandy Aid threats - letter 22 Apr 2014 Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer has often been questioned as to why she didn't come forward last year when threats she says were made by the Lt. Governor over her Sandy Aid occurred. This week, Zimmer attempted to explain her reasoning in a letter to the Democratic leaders of the legislature. In what she says are previously unreported entries to her personal journal, Zimmer says she discussed coming forward with the city's redevelopment attorney, but ultimately decided it was pointless.

USociopaths hit new low: US Navy to deploy combat dolphins for Black Sea military drills - report 22 Apr 2014 American combat dolphins and sea lions will undergo a lengthy plane flight in order to participate in NATO war games in the Black Sea, a spokesman for the US Navy's marine mammals program reportedly said. Twenty dolphins and ten sea lions will take part in the drills, which will last between one and two weeks, spokesman Tom LaPuzza said, as cited by Izvestia newspaper. The war games are one of eight joint NATO-Ukrainian military exercises scheduled to take place this year. [US nutjobs: STOP using animals in your perverted, psycho war games. WHO can rid us of this miserable regime?]

US responsible for Ukrainian crisis after investing $5bn in regime change - Russia's envoy to UN

April 23, 2014 by legitgov

US responsible for Ukrainian crisis after investing $5bn in regime change - Russia's envoy to UN 23 Apr 2014 The US is to blame for the events in Ukraine as it invested $5 billion in regime change in the country, taking a more radical stance that its EU allies, Vitaly Churkin, Russia's envoy to the UN, said. "It seems it was the Americans, who tried to push through the most radical scenario," Churkin said in an interview with Rossiya 24 channel. "They didn't want any sort of compromise between [ousted President Viktor] Yanukovich and the opposition. And, I think, they came to the conclusion that it was time to cash in those $5 billion and handle the matter towards abrupt regime change, which, eventually, happened." This explains why the US, but not the European Union, took center stage when the coup resulted in legal vacuum in Kiev, he added.

April 23, 2014 by legitgov

MH370 Relatives In Death Certificate Fury 22 Apr 2014 Relatives of flight MH370 passengers have expressed outrage after the Malaysian government suggested it was considering issuing death certificates for those on board the missing flight. "We, the families of MH370, believe that until they have conclusive proof that the plane crashed with no survivors, they have no right to attempt to settle this case with the issuance of death certificates and final payoffs," said the statement from the United Families of MH370 group.

U.S. says will act 'in days' if no Russian action in Ukraine 21 Apr 2014 The United States government said on Monday it will decide "in days" on additional sanctions if Russia does not take steps to implement an agreement to ease tensions in Ukraine reached in Geneva last week. The steps include publicly calling on pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine to vacate occupied buildings and checkpoints, accept an amnesty and address their grievances politically, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

NYPD's Twitter Request for Photos Backfires 23 Apr 2014 A request by the New York City Police Department has backfired -- in a very public way. Its request that Twitter users share pictures of them posing with police officers has caused people to start sending in photos of police brutality...Other photos included an elderly man bloodied after being arrested for jaywalking.

Govt must turn over info on CIA prisons to defense

April 23, 2014 by legitgov

Govt must turn over info on CIA prisons to defense 22 Apr 2014 Prosecutors must turn over never-revealed details about the time a Guantanamo Bay detainee spent in secret CIA prisons after his arrest in connection with the deadly attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, according to a military judge's order released Tuesday. The five-page order was a victory for defense lawyers representing Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, accused of orchestrating the Oct. 12, 2000, bombing of the USS Cole. Prosecutors, who can appeal the judge's ruling, had argued that information about his time spent [being tortured] CIA custody was irrelevant to the case.

US sends 600 troops to Eastern Europe, warship USS Taylor enters Black Sea 22 Apr 2014 US frigate USS Taylor (FFG 50) has entered the Black Sea, according to the US Navy, as the Pentagon announces plans to dispatch some 600 troops to Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia for military exercises. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has previously stated that the US has been violating the Montreux Convention which restricts the number of US vessels operating in the Black Sea and sets a time limit of 21 days for each one...The 600 troops are to be sent to Poland and the Baltic states in the coming days in order to offer support to NATO allies which have expressed concern following Crimea’s accession to Russia, the Pentagon stated on Tuesday.

U.S. offers Ukraine $50 million aid package

April 22, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. offers Ukraine $50 million aid package 22 Apr 2014 The United States has offered Ukraine a new $50 million aid package to help with 'economic and political reform,' the White House said on Tuesday during a visit to Kiev by Vice President Joe Biden. It also offered an additional $8 million in non-lethal military aid, including radios and vehicles, according to a statement issued by Biden's staff in Kiev. Small in terms of Ukraine's needs and in relation to the $1 billion loan guarantee already signed with Washington, the package, along with Biden's visit, was a clear show of support for the new authorities following the [CIA-backed] overthrow of the Kremlin-backed president and continuing confrontation with Russia. [There's $58 million to give the unelected Nazi government in the Ukraine--but there's no money for food stamps or to extend unemployment insurance, though, right? And these potholes on the Interstates are beginning to rival the Mariana Trench in their depths--they should check to see if Flight MH370 is in one of them--but Congress won't appropriate one cent for their repairs. Too bad we can't get Cliven Bundy's militias to show up to fight *this* insanity. --LRP]

Law firm hired by Christie for internal probe donated $10K in 2014 to RGA 15 Apr 2014 Nine days before a team of its top lawyers made public a report clearing Governor Christie in the George Washington Bridge scandal, the law firm donated $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association, a group he heads. Gibson Dunn & Crutcher made its donation March 18. The law firm's California office appears to make regular contributions to the GOP group, which Christie has credited with helping him get elected in 2009.

Why Is the Post Office Buying Bullets?

April 22, 2014 by legitgov

Why Is the Post Office Buying Bullets? 21 Apr 2014 The U.S. Postal Service has become the target of gun enthusiasts, who are accusing the agency of stockpiling ammunition as part of a broader government plot to deprive Americans of their liberties. On April 14, Newsmax reported that the USPS was seeking to buy a large amount of ammunition on the heels of similar purchases by the Social Security Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. If this sounds vaguely familiar, it might be because last February, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security posted a solicitation to federal suppliers for a potential purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.

Earth Day and the Arctic, Where Global Warming Is Up Close and Personal

Earth Day and the Arctic, Where Global Warming Is Up Close and Personal 21 Apr 2014 As the world celebrates Earth Day, the top of the world [the Arctic Circle] offers a unique window on the sometimes unforeseen consequences of global warming, in which familiar meteorological patterns no longer apply. In the Arctic, which due to its sensitivity to temperature is on the front lines of climate change, the result is an unfamiliar cycle of thawing and freezing that would have been unthinkable a decade ago, and which is affecting life in large and small ways...Making matters worse, polar bears stalk beaches where they have never been seen before, and are soon expected to begin hunting reindeer, and warm-climate brown bears are moving farther north into reindeer territory to cool off.

U.S. Supreme Court upholds anti-affirmative action law, California's Prop. 209 stands

April 22, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. Supreme Court upholds anti-affirmative action law, California's Prop. 209 stands 22 Apr 2014 In a decision that likely makes California's Proposition 209 bulletproof against legal attack, the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld an identical Michigan law that bans affirmative action in public programs such as university admissions. The Supreme Court, while splintered in its legal reasoning, determined that voters had a right to enact Michigan's law in 2006 and make a choice to outlaw race and gender preferences. The majority decision, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, based the outcome on a states' rights argument, steering clear of whether Michigan's law violated the constitutional rights of minorities in the state.

US Supreme Court upholds Michigan law that bans affirmative action 22 Apr 2014 The US Supreme Court has upheld Michigan's ban on using race as a factor in college admissions. The justices [sic] said in a 6-2 ruling on Tuesday that Michigan voters had the right to change their state constitution to prohibit public colleges and universities from taking account of race in admissions decisions. The justices say that a lower federal court was wrong to set aside the change as discriminatory.

Guantanamo Bay detainees' release upon end of Afghanistan war 'unlikely'

April 22, 2014 by legitgov

Guantánamo Bay detainees' release upon end of Afghanistan war 'unlikely' 19 Apr 2014 Typically, when a war ends, so does the combatants' authority to detain the other side's fighters. But as the conclusion of the US war in Afghanistan approaches, the inmate population of Guantánamo Bay is likely to be an exception -- and, for the Obama administration, the latest complication to its attempt to close the infamous wartime detention complex. In December, when President Barack Obama and his Nato allies formally end their combat role in Afghanistan, US officials indicate there is unlikely to be a corresponding release of detainees at Guantánamo who were captured during the country's longest conflict. Already human rights groups and lawyers for the detainees say they anticipate filing a new wave of lawsuits challenging the basis for a wartime detention after the war ends -- the next phase in more than a decade of attempts to litigate the end of indefinite detention.

The Scary Truth About the New York City Flu Vaccine Mandate

April 22, 2014 by legitgov

The Scary Truth About the New York City Flu Vaccine Mandate 21 Apr 2014 This year, 150,000 children will be added to the list of victims of forced vaccination. The leaders of New York City have mandated that all children under the age of six years old who attend day care or preschool must be vaccinated with the flu vaccine... According to the CDC, the flu vaccine contains thimerosal, aluminum, antibiotics, egg protein, aborted human fetal cells, and monosodium glutamate (MSG). Our immune systems may be unable to combat these foreign, toxic substances... According to a search of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) website, in the past five years, (during the period from January 2009 until February 2014) there were 55, 578 adverse events reported to VAERS related to the flu vaccine.

NY court: US must release targeted killings memo

April 22, 2014 by legitgov

NY court: US must release targeted killings memo 21 Apr 2014 The U.S. government must publicly disclose in redacted form secret papers describing its legal justification for using drones to kill citizens suspected of terrorism overseas, because President Barack Obama and senior government officials have commented on the subject, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York ruled in a Freedom of Information Act case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union and two reporters for The New York Times. In 2011, they sought any documents in which Department of Justice lawyers had discussed the highly classified "targeted-killing" program.

U.S. force in Afghanistan may be cut to less than 10,000 troops [Yeah, that should be enough to protect the CIA's opium routes.] 21 Apr 2014 The number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan may drop well below 10,000 - the minimum demanded by the U.S. military to 'train Afghan forces' - as the longest war in American history winds down, Obama administration officials briefed on the matter say. Since Afghanistan's general election on April 5, White House, State Department and Pentagon officials have resumed discussions on how many American troops should remain after the current U.S.-led coalition ends its mission this year.

April 21, 2014 by legitgov

US unleashes three days of drone strikes on Yemen, 55 killed 21 Apr 2014 Dozens are reportedly dead in Yemen, including at least three civilians, as the result of a series of drone strikes that started in the southern part of the country on Saturday and is alleged to still be occurring two days later.

The United States is alleged to have carried out the strikes using unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, but does not legally have to acknowledge any operations conducted by its Central Intelligence Agency and has not commented.

False flag casting call: Marines looking for a few good actors to play terrorists in training exercises

False flag casting call: Marines looking for a few good actors to play terrorists in training exercises --25 actors -- all of whom must be U.S. citizens and be able to adapt to multiple scenarios -- are being sought for the exercises, which will also feature the use of AK-47s with blank ammunition provided by BKM Enterprises. 21 Apr 2014 The United States Marine Corps is looking for a few good actors to play terrorists in upcoming training exercises, putting out a casting call that could give clues about for what the Pentagon is prepping. A solicitation put out this month by the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command sought an actor to play an "Al Qaeda personality," a French-speaker with a college degree in chemistry and three men who could play "high value insurgent" roles. The actors are needed for training exercises in South Carolina during the next three months. [Pretty blatant about it, aren't they? Let's hope the dirt-bags don't *go live,* as they did on 9/11, in Boston, and elsewhere.]

Fukushima No. 1 boss admits radioactive water problems out of control --Abe [lied and] told an Olympic Committee meet situation was under control 20 Apr 2014 The manager of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant admits to embarrassment that repeated efforts have failed to bring under control the problem of radioactive water, eight months after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told the world the matter had been resolved. Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant's operator, has been fighting a daily battle against contaminated radioactive water since Fukushima was wrecked in March 2011. "It's embarrassing to admit, but there are certain parts of the site where we don't have full control," Akira Ono told reporters touring the plant last week.

DARPA producing sea-floor pods that can release attack drones on command 19 Apr 2014 The Pentagon's research arm, DARPA, is developing robot pods that can sit at the bottom of the ocean for long stretches of time, waiting to release airborne and water-based drones to the surface upon an attack command. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently called for bids to complete the final two phases of its Upward Falling Payloads (UFP) program. The UFPs would come equipped with electronic and low-power laser attack capabilities, surveillance sensors, and airborne and aquatic drones that would have the ability to act as decoys or offer intelligence and targeting data, Ars Technica reported.
