In total, NSA has paid the state more than $1.03 million, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Syrian 'rebels' backed by the U.S. will have air cover, source says | 02 Aug 2015 | Syrian 'rebels' backed by the United States will now have air cover if they come under attack after President Barack Obama signed off on the decision, a senior administration official confirms to CNN on Sunday.

U.S. aircraft came in after the attack on a compound where members of the New Syria Force, which is the U.S.-trained-and-equipped rebel terrorist group, were located as well members of the 30th division.

It comes a week after Africa's most famous lion Cecil was killed by Minnesota Dentist Dr. Walter Palmer in early July, sparking international outrage.

How Pentagon war fund became a budget buster Washington can't resist

How Pentagon war fund became a budget buster Washington can't resist | 31 July 2015 | The number of U.S. troops deployed in battle zones is at its lowest level since before the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Still, Congress has authorized a 38 percent increase in the war budget over last year. The contradiction is the legacy of an emergency war fund, started in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks [Bush/Cheney inside job], that has become a favorite Washington way to sidestep the impact of fiscal constraints on military spending. The Overseas Contingency Operations account, or OCO, has been tapped to fund tens of billions of dollars in programs with questionable links, or none, to wars, according to current and former U.S. officials, analysts and budget documents.

Joe Biden Said to Be Taking New Look at Presidential Run 01 Aug 2015 | Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his associates have begun to actively explore a possible presidential campaign, which would upend the Democratic field and deliver a direct threat to Hillary Rodham Clinton, several people who have spoken to Mr. Biden or his closest advisers say. Mr. Biden’s advisers have started to reach out to Democratic leaders and donors who have not yet committed to Mrs. Clinton or who have grown concerned about what they see as her increasingly visible vulnerabilities [thanks to daily fabrications by the corporate-owned 'Wh*re York Times'] as a candidate. On Saturday, the New York Times columnist [sic] Maureen Dowd reported that Mr. Biden had been holding meetings at his residence, "talking to friends, family and donors about jumping in" to challenge Mrs. Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two nominating states.

August 1, 2015 by legitgov

Court: German spy agency need not give info on NSA list | 31 July 2015 | A German federal court has ruled that the country's spy agency is under no obligation to divulge to the media a list of names compiled from search terms provided to it by the U.S. National Security Agency.

August 1, 2015 by legitgov

Talks for Obama's Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Deal Stall at a Critical Step | 31 July 2015 | 'Trade' negotiators from the United States and 11 other Pacific nations failed to reach final agreement Friday, with difficult talks on the largest regional trade corporate takeover agreement ever deadlocking over protections for pharmaceutical companies and access to agriculture markets on both sides of the Pacific...Some environmental groups, and many Democrats in Congress, are very likely to be dissatisfied. They complain accurately state that agreeing to a series of "obligations" falls short of "requirements." The Sierra Club has complained that the United States has not pursued trade remedies against countries obliged to environmental enforcement under existing accords, such as the United States-Peru free trade deal.

Shell's profits fall as protests mount over Arctic drilling [Awesome!] | 30 July 2015 | Dozens of activists with Greenpeace and Rising Tide blockaded the mouth of Portland’s Willamette River Thursday, dangling from a bridge and swarming the waters -- all in an effort to prevent Shell from launching a ship it needs to begin advanced drilling for oil in the Alaskan Arctic. The bold plan seems to working, too. As the sun bobbed up over the Pacific, one of the activists on the bridge shot footage of Shell's ice breaker appearing to turn back as cheers erupted from a group of supporters. Under the terms of Shell's drilling plan, [insanely] approved in May by the Obama administration, the company has to have the ship on site because it carries a special Arctic-ready spill containment system.

Bernie Sanders criticizes Koch 'open borders' low-wage labor proposal at Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

July 30, 2015 by legitgov

Bernie Sanders criticizes Koch 'open borders' low-wage labor proposal at Hispanic Chamber of Commerce | 30 July 2015 | Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) found himself at odds with some immigration reform advocates Thursday, defending his 2007 vote against a comprehensive immigration bill and telling an audience hosted by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce that "open borders" were a threat to American jobs. "There is a reason that Wall Street likes immigration reform," Sanders said. "What I think they're interested in is seeing a process by which we can bring low-wage labor into this county." [*Exactly.*] Sanders was asked if he could favor "sharply raising the level of immigration we permit, even up to a level of open borders." The Vermont senator vehemently disagreed. "That's a Koch brothers proposal," he said. "What right-wing people [and Obama] in this country would love is an open-border policy. Bring in all kinds of people, work for $2 or $3 an hour, that would be great for them. I don't believe in that."

Number on Reunion Island debris corresponds to Boeing 777 component

Number on Reunion Island debris corresponds to Boeing 777 component | 30 July 2015 | Boeing investigators are confident that debris found on a remote island in the Indian Ocean comes from a 777 aircraft, according to a source close to the investigation. An international team of aviation experts is trying to determine if that airplane part comes from Malaysia Airlines flight 370, a Boeing 777 that disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board. A match might help solve the mystery of what happened to that that airplane, since no other 777s in the world are unaccounted for, according to the Aviation Safety Network, an online database of flight incidents. People cleaning a beach found the debris Wednesday on Reunion, a French overseas territory in the western Indian Ocean.

Trump leads Republican presidential race with 25 percent: Reuters-Ipsos poll | 29 July 2015 | Billionaire Donald Trump has taken a commanding lead in the race for the 2016 U.S. Republican presidential nomination with the support of 25 percent in a Reuters/Ipsos poll, giving him a double-digit advantage over nearest rival Jeb Bush. The poll shows Bush, the former Florida governor, trailing at 12 percent.  It is a huge jump for Trump, who announced his candidacy for the November 2016 election six weeks ago - and this despite the criticism political rivals leveled at him for remarks this month belittling the military service of Senator John McCain [after McCain belittled Trump's supporters, first], the party's candidate in 2008.

Israel, Not Iran, Started Middle East Nuclear Arms Race

July 30, 2015 by legitgov

Israel, Not Iran, Started Middle East Nuclear Arms Race | 29 July 2015 | The debate about the P5+1 agreement with Iran on its nuclear program has already produced a storm of angry rhetoric and a tsunami of opinion pieces. But one issue is notably absent from the debate: the fact that Israel has a nuclear weapons arsenal and sophisticated delivery systems that are decades ahead of anything Iran could develop in the foreseeable future. Iran should be constrained by a global regime from getting the bomb, but the notion that Israel is a weak powerless state like Czechoslovakia in 1938 is ludicrous. The American intelligence community first detected the development of the Israeli nuclear weapons program through U-2 overhead imagery at the end of the 1950s.
