March 31, 2015 by legitgov

Justice Department appeals federal judge's hold on Obama's immigration action | 31 March 2015 | The Justice Department urged a federal appeals court Monday to reverse a hold a judge placed on President Barack Obama's immigration executive action. The 69-page brief was filed with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ahead of arguments scheduled for next month. Lawyers for the federal government are challenging a preliminary injunction issued in February by a federal judge in Brownsville, Texas. That decision placed on hold an executive action that could spare from deportation as many as 5 million people who are in the U.S. illegally.

March 30, 2015 by legitgov

Previously unpublished interview with Allen Ginsberg and Michael Rectenwald | 2 March 2015 | (Dangerous Minds) In 1977, Michael Rectenwald was a disenchanted pre-med student with a secret passion for poetry--Allen Ginsberg and his influences in particular. After a couple of years of covertly consuming, studying and writing poems, he found his interest in medical school had entirely evaporated, so he left school and dove further into writing, eventually sending a letter and some of his poems to Ginsberg himself. Not only did Ginsberg write back, he invited Rectenwald to apprentice him at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado... See also: Tragic note from the final days of William Burroughs Jr. | 30 March 2015 | (Dangerous Minds) William Seward Burroughs III—better known as Billy Burroughs or William Burroughs Jr.--had one of the more tragically doomed lives in literature...At one point late in Billy's life, Michael Rectenwald--(poet, fiction writer and academic [and Chair/Founder of legitgov.org], who was at the time an apprentice to Allen Ginsberg at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado)--was placed in a sort of care-taking position for Billy--no easy task for a college student. Nonetheless, Rectenwald saw Billy's devastating final days, and was the recipient of the heart-wrenching note below, left before Billy fled to Florida.

U.S. Nerve Gas Hit Over 200,000 American Troops in Iraq [That's no 'mistake.' That's obviously a biowarfare experiment.] | 27 March 2015 | During and immediately after the first Gulf War, more than 200,000 of 700,000 U.S. troops sent to Iraq and Kuwait in January 1991 were exposed to nerve gas and other chemical agents. Though aware of this, the Department of Defense and CIA launched a campaign of lies and concocted a cover-up that continues today...During January and February 1991, when the U.S. bombed Iraq's weapons plants and storage sites, poisonous plumes floated across the desert to thousands of U.S. troops based on the Saudi border. Sirens wailed daily, but officers in charge announced that the chemical-detection alarms were faulty. They were not. A Czech chemical-weapons detection unit found "trace concentrations of sarin, a nerve-paralyzing substance" drifting into Saudi Arabia. French, British and U.S. intelligence units found similar evidence.

Paddington's saviours: Mail on Sunday readers donate astonishing £30,000 to fly tortured bear rescued from Peru circus to new home in U.S. sanctuary --Her teeth were broken and claws removed so she couldn't defend herself --She will be flown to a sanctuary in Colorado to live out her life in peace [A reward needs to be offered to the hero who *blows away* this bear's torturers.] | 29 March 2015 | The real-life Paddington bear who suffered such appalling treatment in a circus that she lost her claws, teeth and fur is closer to finding a new home, thanks to the generosity of Mail on Sunday readers. After the plight of Cholita was highlighted by this newspaper last week, readers donated an extraordinary £30,000 to Animal Defenders International, which found the bear in a terrible condition during a raid in Peru earlier this month. The elderly bear lost most of the thick black hair that covered her body as the result of the stress she endured at the circus, where she was kept in a 5ft by 5ft box, and her teeth were broken and her claws removed to prevent her from defending herself. [Cholita's appeal page is here.]

Indiana: Bill Signed Allowing Denial of Service to Gays | 26 March 2015 | Gov. Mike Pence on Thursday signed into law a religious objections bill that some convention organizers and business leaders have opposed amid concern it could allow discrimination against gay people.

Cat litter [actually, improperly packaged plutonium] blamed for $240m radiation leak at New Mexico nuclear waste dump

March 28, 2015 by legitgov

Cat litter [actually, improperly packaged plutonium] blamed for $240m radiation leak at New Mexico nuclear waste dump | 27 March 2015 | A radiation leak at an underground nuclear waste dump in New Mexico was caused by "chemically incompatible" contents, including cat litter, that reacted inside a barrel of waste causing it to rupture, scientists said on Thursday. The US Energy Department report on last year's radiation accident at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) near Carlsbad showed that a drum of waste containing radioisotopes like plutonium was improperly packaged at the Los Alamos National Laboratory near Santa Fe before arriving for disposal. The improper mix in the barrel, including the wrong sort of cat litter used to absorb liquids, sparked a chemical reaction causing it to heat up and generate gases that dislodged its lid, spewing radioactive materials, investigators found.

But with residents of the entire states of Texas and Utah dubbed 'hostile' for the purposes of the exercises, Jade Helm has some concerned the drills are too realistic.

CIA official who directed hunt for bin Laden is being removed from post

CIA official who directed hunt for bin Laden is being removed from post | 25 March 2015 | The head of the CIA's Counter-terrorism Center, who presided over the agency's drone campaign and directed the hunt for Osama bin Laden [who died in 2001], is being removed from his post, officials said, a watershed moment as the CIA turns its focus to a new generation of extremist threats [and false flags]. The move, part of a major reorganization under CIA Director John Brennan, ends a nine-year tenure during which the center was transformed into a paramilitary force that employed armed drones to kill thousands of suspected terrorists and militants but also killed an unknown number of civilians. Because he remains undercover, The Washington Post [aka the Operation Mockingbird flagship] has agreed to withhold his full name.

Co-pilot suspected of deliberately crashing Germanwings jet | 27 March 2015 | A young German co-pilot barricaded himself alone in the cockpit of Germanwings flight 9525 and apparently set it on course to crash into an Alpine mountain, killing all 150 people on board including himself, French prosecutors said on Thursday. They offered no motive for why Andreas Lubitz, 27, would take the controls of the Airbus A320, lock the captain out of the cockpit and deliberately set it veering down from cruising altitude at 3,000 feet per minute. German police searched his home for evidence that might offer some explanation for what was behind Tuesday's crash in the French Alps.
