Special counsel: Manslaughter charge possible in Flint water poisonings

February 11, 2016 by legitgov

Special counsel: Manslaughter charge possible in Flint water poisonings | 09 Feb 2016 | Todd Flood, special counsel for the state attorney general’s office investigation into the Flint water crisis, said Tuesday the probe could lead to a variety of criminal charges or civil actions. "We're here to investigate what possible crimes there are, anything to the involuntary manslaughter or death that may have happened to some young person or old person because of this poisoning, to misconduct in office," he said..."It's not far-fetched" to imagine involuntary manslaughter charges in the case, Flood told reporters, if the investigation links "gross negligence" or a "breach of duty" to a death in Flint, where at least nine people have died of Legionnaires' disease after the city switched to Flint River water in April 2014.

February 10, 2016 by legitgov

Chris Christie suspends his presidential campaign | 10 Feb 2016 | Chris Christie -- the brash New Jersey governor whose fast rise in Republican politics was undone by a petty scheme to clog traffic on a bridge -- has decided to suspend his presidential campaign, according to two Republicans briefed on his deliberations. Christie held a meeting and conference call with campaign staff at 4 p.m. to inform them of his decision, the Republicans said. Christie finished sixth in Tuesday’s primary in New Hampshire, the state on which he had pinned his last presidential hopes.

Unless It Changes, Capitalism Will Starve Humanity By 2050

February 10, 2016 by legitgov

Unless It Changes, Capitalism Will Starve Humanity By 2050 | 09 Feb 2016 | Capitalism has generated massive wealth for some, but it's devastated the planet and has failed to improve human well-being at scale...These trends support the need to build a new system: one that will balance economic growth with sustainability and human flourishing. In response to consumer demand and pressure from Wall Street, public corporations have been willing to ravage the environment and ignore employee opinion as part of their relentless pursuit of growth. A new generation of companies recognize these shortcomings and are tweaking the current form of capitalism by pioneering distributed ownership structures and agile management styles.

Marco Rubio (R-Florida), and other competitors.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, strongest opponents of the TPP, are projected winners in New Hampshire

February 10, 2016 by legitgov

Trump, Sanders Sweep to Victory in New Hampshire Primaries - NBC News | 09 Feb 2016 | Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders will win the New Hampshire primaries, NBC News projects, outcomes that are certain to send further shockwaves through the anxious political establishments of both parties. Since he began to dominate the race after his entry last summer, Trump has bewildered party regulars with his bombastic style and his appeal to GOP voters disaffected with more traditional candidates. His win Tuesday, following a second-place finish in Iowa last week, seals Trump's position as a legitimate candidate for the Republican nomination and all but ensures a more prolonged primary fight as the GOP candidates turn their attention to the South Carolina primary in less than two weeks.

February 10, 2016 by legitgov

Supreme Court, in 5-4 Vote, Blocks Enforcement of Air Pollution Rule | 09 Feb 2016 | The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked enforcement of the Obama administration's ambitious new plan for cutting greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

Four members of the court -- Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan -- dissented and said they would have allowed the EPA to continue enforcing the rule during the court battle.

Billions more taxpayer dollars down the sewer: US to deploy hundreds of troops in Afghanistan, to bolster local military in Helmand province | 08 Feb 2016 | Hundreds of additional US troops are slated to deploy to a volatile province in Afghanistan to bolster the local military against a resurgent Taliban [to protect the CIA's poppy fields and opium routes], the Guardian has learned. By month's end, a force described as battalion-strength, consisting of mostly army soldiers, will arrive in Helmand province where US and UK forces have struggled in battles for over a decade to drive out the Taliban. In keeping with Barack Obama's formal declaration [lie] that the US is not engaged in combat, despite elite forces recently participating in an hours-long battle in Helmand, defense officials said the additional troops would not take part in combat. But they will help the existing Helmand force defend itself against Taliban attacks, officials said.

Obama proposes $4.1 trillion spending plan in final White House budget | 10 Feb 2016 | U.S. President Barack Obama proposed a $4.1 trillion spending plan for fiscal year 2017 on Tuesday in a final White House budget that met immediate Republican resistance for its cost and reliance on tax hikes to fund domestic priorities.

Under Sanders, income and jobs would soar, economist says | 08 Feb 2016 | Median income would soar by more than $22,000. Nearly 26 million jobs would be created. The unemployment rate would fall to 3.8%. Those are just a few of the things that would happen if Bernie Sanders became president and his ambitious economic program were put into effect, according to an analysis given exclusively to CNNMoney. The first comprehensive look at the impact of all of Sanders's spending and tax proposals on the economy was done by Gerald Friedman, a University of Massachusetts Amherst economics professor...The U.S. economy would grow by 5.3% per year, instead of 2.1%, and the nation's $1.3 trillion deficit would turn into a large surplus by Sanders's second term.

Twitter's Attempt to Silence Generation Trump

February 9, 2016 by legitgov

Twitter's Attempt to Silence Generation Trump | 08 Feb 2016 | Earlier this month after Twitter's unverification of Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos, commentators began to suspect that the social network was declaring war on conservatives. But on closer inspection, it appears that Twitter's war on free speech is directed at a specific generation of libertarians and alternative conservative voices, many of whom are vocal and enthusiastic supporters of Donald Trump. Establishment Republicans [corporate trolls] like GOP strategist Rick Wilson enjoy as much freedom as they want on the platform...As Twitter's stock price plummets faster than Jeb Bush's poll numbers [LOL!], Twitter appears to be doubling down on its wrongheaded strategy.

Bloomberg says he is eyeing 2016 run for the White House | 08 Feb 2016 | Michael Bloomberg [,73, which FT via CNBC 'forgot' to mention--even though we hear about the age of Bernie Sanders every five picoseconds], the billionaire media owner and former New York mayor, has stated for the first time that he is considering a run for US president, a move that would dramatically reshape the 2016 race for the White House. Speaking to the Financial Times, the founder of the eponymous financial information group criticised the quality of the debate in the presidential race. He said that he was "looking at all the options" when asked whether he was considering putting his name forward.

Global health authorities suspect the [genetically modified] mosquito[Tdap vaccine]-borne Zika virus has caused a spike in Brazil of microcephaly, a birth defect marked by an abnormally small head.

Do billionaire NFL owners deserve subsidies from U.S. taxpayers?

Do billionaire NFL owners deserve subsidies from U.S. taxpayers? | 30 Jan 2016 | The recent announcement by the National Football League that the St Louis Rams would be relocating to Los Angeles created much excitement in NFL circles, but the news didn't meet with universal approval. While revenues in the league continue to rise at a staggering rate - the Forbes 2015 list of the most valuable teams in the NFL showed the average team value is $1.97 billion, up 38 percent from the previous year - the question of taxpayer subsidies continues to cause much debate. The Rams' valuation of $1.45 billion might suggest they don't need handouts, yet the stadium they leave behind will continue to cost St Louis and Missouri taxpayers $12 million per year until 2022.

Highly radioactive leak found at New York nuclear plant | 07 Feb 2016 | Gov.

It was unclear how much water spilled, but samples showed the water had a radioactivity level of more than 8 million picocuries per liter, a 65,000 percent increase from the average at the plant, Cuomo said. The levels are the highest regulators have seen at Indian Point, and the normal number is about 12,300 picocuries per liter, Cuomo said.
