December 8, 2016 by legitgov

Fukushima radiation has reached U.S. shores --Cesium-134 for first time has been detected in a Canadian salmon - Fukushima InFORM project | 07 Dec 2016 | For the first time, seaborne radiation from Japan's Fukushima nuclear disaster has been detected on the West Coast of the United States. Cesium-134, the so-called fingerprint of Fukushima, was measured in seawater samples taken from Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach in Oregon, researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are reporting. Because of its short half-life, cesium-134 can only have come from Fukushima.

Michael Moore calls for protesters to 'disrupt' Trump's inauguration | 07 Dec 2016 | Michael Moore -- who predicted Donald Trump would win the presidency months before his surprise victory -- is now encouraging people to protest the President-elect's upcoming inauguration. "Disrupt the Inauguration. The Majority have [sic] spoken -- by nearly 2.7 million votes &counting! Silence is not an option," Moore tweeted Wednesday. The liberal filmmaker shared a link to the website for DisruptJ20, a campaign for "a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017."

U.S. judge reverses order requiring vote recount in Michigan

December 8, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. judge reverses order requiring vote recount in Michigan | 07 Dec 2016 | A federal judge in Michigan on Wednesday revoked his order requiring a recount of the state's presidential vote sought by Jill Stein, siding with a state appeals court that found the Green Party candidate had no grounds to mount the challenge. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith's ruling has the effect of halting the recount in Michigan, at least for now, following conflicting rulings a day earlier by federal and state appeals courts...Goldsmith, in deferring to the Michigan appeals court, said Stein had not presented valid reasons for him to override that court's decision, which found that she was not an "aggrieved" candidate with standing to demand a recount.

Dismal Jobs Report

December 8, 2016 by legitgov

Dismal Jobs Report | 07 Dec 2016 | The...media delivered the false news, not from Russian propaganda websites such as the Washington Post accuses this one of being, but from Obama's US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The false news is that the collapsing economy continues to boom with 178,000 new jobs in November and a further fall in the rate of unemployment to 4.6%...The facts are that November produced only 9,000 full time jobs, an improvement over the previous month when full time employment declined by 103,000 jobs--another fact that you did not hear about from the [media].

Trump to pick foe of Obama climate agenda to run EPA | 07 Dec 2016 | Donald Trump will name Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, an ardent opponent of President Barack Obama's measures to curb climate change, as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, a Trump transition team official said on Wednesday, a choice that enraged green activists and cheered the oil industry...Since becoming the top prosecutor for the major oil- and gas-producing state in 2011, Pruitt, 48, has launched multiple lawsuits against regulations put forward by the agency he is now poised to lead, suing to block federal measures to reduce smog and curb toxic emissions from power plants.

Transgender Community Wants Proper Identification After Deadly Oakland Warehouse Fire

December 8, 2016 by walden9

Transgender Community Wants Proper Identification After Deadly Oakland Warehouse Fire | 06 Dec 2016 | The Oakland warehouse artists' enclave was supposed to be a safe place, emotionally and spiritually, for the artists and free spirits who chose lives off the beaten track. An electronic music party had also attracted many in the transgender community, who had come together on Friday night, as they did regularly, to dance with friends and blow off steam. But physically, the enclave wasn't safe at all on Friday. A fire ripped through the illegally converted warehouse at 1315 East 31st Avenue in the city's Fruitvale neighborhood, killing at least 36 people.

2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump

December 7, 2016 by walden9

2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump | 07 Dec 2016 | For all of [Donald] Trump's public life, tastemakers and intellectuals have dismissed him as a vulgarian and carnival barker, a showman with big flash and little substance. But what those critics never understood was that their disdain gave him strength. For years, he fed off the disrespect and used it to grab more tabloid headlines, to connect to common people. Now he has upended the leadership of both major political parties and effectively shifted the political direction of the international order. He will soon command history's most lethal military, along with economic levers that can change the lives of billions. And the people he has to thank are those he calls "the forgotten," millions of American voters who get paid by the hour in shoes that will never touch these carpets--working folk, regular Janes and Joes, the dots in the distance.

December 7, 2016 by walden9

UMD president 'offends' students by making sanctuary pledge in Spanish | 06 Dec 2016 | University of Maryland President Wallace Loh inadvertently outraged liberal students by using Spanish while pledging to protect illegal immigrant students, a move deemed "offensive" to UMD's immigrant population. Much of Loh's annual State of the Campus Address was a "a clear call to embrace diversity," according to The Diamondback, including a promise to protect illegal immigrant students on campus by barring immigration officials from campus if they don't have a warrant and refusing to voluntarily share undocumented student information.

December 7, 2016 by walden9

Donald Trump Names Retired Gen. John Kelly as Homeland Security Chief | 07 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, whose last command included oversight of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, to run the Department of Homeland Security, people close to the transition team said Wednesday. Kelly, who joined the Marine Corps in 1970, retired earlier this year, wrapping up a final, three-year post as head of U.S. Southern Command, which spanned some of the more fractious debate over the Obama administration’s ultimately failed pledge to close Guantanamo.

Trump lays out non-interventionist U.S. military policy | 06 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump laid out a U.S. military policy on Tuesday that would avoid interventions in foreign conflicts and instead focus heavily on defeating the Islamic State militancy. In the latest stop on a "thank you" tour of states critical to his Nov. 8 election win, Trump introduced his choice for defense secretary, General James Mattis, to a large crowd in this city near the Fort Bragg military base, which has deployed soldiers to 90 countries around the world. "We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn't be involved with," Trump said. "Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS, and we will."

December 7, 2016 by legitgov

Boeing Said to Offer Talks on Air Force One After Trump Tweets | 06 Dec 2016 | Boeing Co. executives told officials on President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team that the cost of a new version of Air Force One could be lowered if the government agrees to reduce its requirements for the plane, people familiar with the discussions said. The company’s executives reached out to Trump’s staff after the Republican said on Twitter on Tuesday that plans for a new Air Force One should be canceled because of "ridiculous" costs. "Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion," Trump said in his tweet. "Cancel order!"

Much of the praise comes from a newer version of the song stressing consent in its lyrics.

December 7, 2016 by walden9

Arrest of refugee in rape and slaying in Germany threatens Merkel's immigration policy | 05 Dec 2016 | The arrest of a 17-year-old Afghan refugee suspected of raping and killing a young German medical student turned into a political maelstrom Monday, with opponents pointing to Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision last year to welcome more than a million migrants into the country. Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel tried to calm the brewing storm by insisting it was unfair to blame all refugees from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq for a single criminal act, but the fallout from the slaying of 19-year-old Maria Ladenburger nonetheless left the government on the defensive.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Microsoft join forces to target 'terrorist propaganda'

December 7, 2016 by walden9

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Microsoft join forces to target 'terrorist propaganda' | 05 Dec 2016 | Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube are joining forces to more quickly identify the worst terrorist propaganda [aka actual news the globalists want to ensure will never see the light of day] and prevent it from spreading online. The new program announced Monday would create a database of unique digital "fingerprints" to help automatically identify videos or images the companies could remove. The move by the technology companies, which is expected to begin in early 2017, aims to assuage government concerns [!] -- and derail proposed new federal legislation -- over social media content that is seen as increasingly driving terrorist recruitment and radicalization, while also balancing free-speech issues.

December 7, 2016 by walden9

Trump Slams Boeing Air Force One With 'Cancel Order!' Tweet | 06 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump said the latest Air Force One order should be canceled because of "ridiculous" costs at Boeing Co., taking aim at plans to replace jets that are among the most visible symbols of the American presidency. "Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion," Trump said Tuesday on Twitter. "Cancel order!" Boeing is the latest major company to be singled out by Trump, who last week announced a deal with United Technologies Corp. to keep a U.S. factory open instead of moving production to Mexico. The president-elect, who turned jobs and trade into defining issues of his campaign, tweeted about Boeing days after Chief Executive Officer Dennis Muilenburg called on him and Congress to ensure that U.S. companies have the tools to compete in a global economy.

Moscow slams West for staying silent on Russian hospital bombing

December 6, 2016 by legitgov

Moscow slams West for staying silent on Russian hospital bombing | 06 Dec 2016 | The Russian Foreign Ministry has criticized western leaders after none appeared to condemn the shelling of a mobile Russian hospital by militants in Syria. Two Russian medics were killed after around a dozen of shells hit the facility in Aleppo. "On December 5, a Russian military medic died as a mortar shell fired by militants directly hit the reception ward of a Russian mobile military hospital set up in Aleppo. Two medical specialists were also severely injured and one of them later died," the ministry said. "However, no words of condemnation can be heard from western capitals," it added, criticizing western governments for their "politicized approach" to the assessment of the situation in Syria.

Vladimir Putin signs new Russian information security doctrine

December 6, 2016 by legitgov

Vladimir Putin signs new Russian information security doctrine | 06 Dec 2016 | The necessity for a new edition of Russia's doctrine on information security is the result of foreign states intensifying their efforts in information and psychological strategies to affect the internal affairs of other sovereign countries and destabilize them, the document says. The doctrine states that the limitless flow of information has a negative impact on international security, as it can be employed to pursue geopolitical and military goals, thus favoring organized crime, extremists, and terrorists. In the meantime, the doctrine notes, Russian government agencies, scientific centers, and military industries are being targeted by foreign intelligence services by means of electronic and cyber surveillance.

Terrorism Conviction of a Wiretapped American Is Upheld on Appeal

December 6, 2016 by legitgov

Terrorism Conviction of a Wiretapped American Is Upheld on Appeal | 05 Dec 2016 | A federal appeals court on Monday upheld the 2013 conviction of a Somali-American man for trying to detonate a bomb at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Ore., rejecting his arguments that the F.B.I. had entrapped him and that the government had unconstitutionally intercepted his emails without a warrant. The ruling -- by a three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco -- was particularly important because it upheld the government’s use of emails gathered without a warrant under the FISA Amendments Act of 2008. The law permits the government, on domestic soil, to collect phone calls and emails of noncitizens abroad, even when they are communicating with an American.

Why I Will Not Cast My Electoral Vote for Donald Trump

December 6, 2016 by walden9

Why I Will Not Cast My Electoral Vote for Donald Trump | 05 Dec 2016 | I am a Republican presidential elector, one of the 538 people asked to choose officially the president of the United States. Since the election, people have asked me to change my vote based on policy disagreements with Donald J. Trump. In some cases, they cite the popular vote difference. I do not think president-elects should be disqualified for policy disagreements. I do not think they should be disqualified because they won the Electoral College instead of the popular vote. However, now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is not qualified for the office.
