February 3, 2016 by legitgov

Jeb Bush has spent more than $5,000 per vote so far | 02 Feb 2016 | In very early national polling in the Republican nomination race, Jeb Bush was the clear front-runner. But he never led in Iowa...Bush ended up in sixth place Monday night, pulling in less than 3 percent of the vote. Between April and the caucus, Bush's campaign spent $27.4 million dollars (according to FEC reports) and dropped 11 points in the polls. Not all of that spending was in Iowa, but Bush refused to give up on the state -- and it cost him.

Carter said part of the $582.7 billion will include $71.4 for research and development funding, adding that much of the money will focus on maintaining an edge over the competition...The Pentagon's spending in Europe will increase from $789 million to $3.4 billion, to reassure allies fund corpora-terrorists and deter so-called Russian aggression.

February 3, 2016 by legitgov

Bernie Sanders Still Won't Concede Close Iowa Caucus | 02 Feb 2016 | Despite the fact that The Associated Press declared Hillary Clinton the victor in Monday's Iowa caucuses by a razor thin margin, Bernie Sanders was still unwilling to concede Tuesday afternoon. Sanders also would not rule out the idea of contesting the election results. The Vermont senator, who has introduced legislation to make election day a federal holiday in order to expand voter participation, also began to question whether some of the tactics reportedly used during the caucuses were "democratic." Reports and videos emerged overnight showing some caucus rooms decided by coin tosses.

Clinton won 49.86% of the vote, according to the Associated Press, with Sanders on 49.57% – a margin of just 0.29 percentage points.

Missing precinct scrambles to report Sanders won --Sanders backers called for Iowa Democratic Party officials to release the raw vote totals. | 02 Feb 2016 | Votes from one precinct in Iowa were still missing Tuesday morning, and Democrats from that neighborhood scrambled to find party officials so that they could report their tally: Bernie Sanders won by 2 delegates over Hillary Clinton. With Des Moines precinct No. 42's results, Clinton's excruciatingly close lead narrowed further, making the final tally for delegate equivalents in the Democratic Iowa caucuses: Clinton: 699.57; Sanders: 697.77. It quickly raised questions about whether Sanders had won the popular vote in Iowa.

Microsoft app used to tally votes at Iowa caucus fails in some areas [but did its intended job of giving H1-B visa advocate Marco Rubio an undeserved boost] | 02 Feb 2016 | As Republican and Democratic caucus voters used new Microsoft tallying apps during the Iowa caucuses, some took to Twitter to say the sites were crashing, while others complimented them on how swiftly they worked. In an emailed statement, Microsoft [lied and] said that the mobile apps for both parties worked without issue.

Ted Cruz Wins Republican Caucuses in Iowa

February 2, 2016 by legitgov

Ted Cruz Wins Republican Caucuses in Iowa | 02 Feb 2016 | Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, powered by a surge of support from evangelical Christians, dealt a humbling loss to Donald J. Trump in the Iowa caucuses on Monday, throwing into question the depth of support for Mr. Trump's unconventional candidacy. [Actually, what's 'thrown into question' is the role of Rubio top donor, Microsoft, in 'counting' the votes in Iowa.] In the first contest of what so far has been more a populist revolt against the political order than a traditional Republican primary, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida finished a strong third, bolstering his case to consolidate the support of Republicans uneasy about the two top finishers. With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Mr. Cruz had nearly 28 percent of the vote, Mr. Trump 24 percent and Mr. Rubio 23 percent.

Pentagon to hike spending request by 35 percent to over $7 billion to fund 'fight against' Islamic State | 01 Feb 1016 | President Barack Obama's administration will seek a significant increase in funding for the 'fight against' Islamic State [I-CIA-SIS] as part of its 2017 defense budget request, U.S. officials say, in another possible sign of U.S. efforts to intensify the campaign. The fiscal year 2017 Pentagon budget will call for more than $7 billion for the fight against Islamic State, a roughly 35 percent increase compared with the previous year's request to Congress, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter is due to disclose his spending priorities for the $583 billion 2017 defense budget on Tuesday in an address to the Economic Club of Washington.

February 2, 2016 by legitgov

Sometimes, Iowa Democrats award caucus delegates with a coin flip | 02 Feb 2016 | In a couple Democratic caucus precincts Monday, a delegate was awarded with a coin toss. It happened in precinct 2-4 in Ames, where supporters of candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton disputed the results after 60 caucus participants apparently disappeared from the proceedings. As a result of the coin toss, Clinton was awarded an additional delegate, meaning she took five of the precinct's eight, while Sanders received three.

February 2, 2016 by legitgov

One of Marco Rubio's Biggest Financial Backers to Tally Iowa Caucuses | 31 Jan 2016 | Microsoft Corp. will be providing the technology to count the votes of Iowa caucus-goers, according to a new report. Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-VT) campaign is raising concerns about the corporation's potential conflict of interest in tallying the votes. As The Hill reports: 'Microsoft volunteered to provide the technology to help tally up the results of Iowa's caucus, free of charge...Pete D'Alessandro, who runs the Sanders operation in Iowa, last week questioned the tech giant's motivations...Other aides to Sanders noted that Microsoft employees have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Clinton campaign, according to MSNBC. "You'd have to ask yourself why they'd want to give something like that away for free," D'Alessandro said...As conservative columnist Michelle Malkin pointed out last month, "Microsoft, founded by leading H-1B/amnesty cheerleader Bill Gates, has been [Marco] Rubio's No. 2 corporate donor the past five years."

February 2, 2016 by legitgov

Both Iowa races too close to call; indications of Trump, Clinton leads - NBC | 01 Feb 2016 | The results of the Iowa caucuses are too close to call, but early entrance poll data indicated leads for the GOP's Donald Trump and Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, according to NBC News. The first wave of entrance polls are not necessarily a good indication of the final result, as caucus-goers may change their minds after going through the evening's process. Still, that early data indicated that Trump, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio were likely their party's top three candidates, according to NBC News. As of 9:10 p.m. ET, early results implied that Trump and Cruz were vying for first place, while Rubio sat in third place, NBC News reported.

February 2, 2016 by legitgov

Justice Department launches review of San Francisco police | 01 Fewb 2016 | The U.S. Justice Department said on Monday it would launch a review of the San Francisco Police, in the wake of the fatal police shooting of a black man that spurred protests and demands that the city's police chief be fired. Although the American Civil Liberties Union had asked for a federal investigation into the San Francisco Police Department following the death of Mario Woods, 26, at the hands of police in December, the review will result only in recommendations, not court-enforceable reforms.

Brazil says Zika virus outbreak worse than believed

Brazil says Zika virus outbreak worse than believed | 01 Feb 2016 | Brazil's top health official said on Monday that the [genetically modified mosquito-created] Zika virus outbreak is proving to be worse than believed because most cases show no symptoms, but improved testing should allow the country to get a better grip on the burgeoning public health crisis. Health Minister Marcelo Castro told Reuters that Brazil will start mandatory reporting of cases by local governments next week when most states will have labs equipped to test for Zika, the mosquito-borne virus that has quickly spread through Latin America. On Monday, the World Health Organization declared the Zika outbreak to be a global emergency, a decision that should help fast-track international action and research priorities.

Iowa caucuses: Eyes on Donald Trump | 01 Feb 2016 | Donald Trump's moment of truth is at hand as the Iowa caucuses are underway. Everyone who was in line by 8 p.m. ET will be allowed to take part in the caucuses -- the first votes in the 2016 White House race, which also mark the first test of the billionaire real estate mogul's ability to transform his media celebrity into votes...Polls suggest that Trump, who has never run for any political office before, stands on the verge of a potentially stunning victory that would shake the Republican Party establishment.

Bush's final rally interrupted by 'seat fillers' demanding to be paid | 01 Feb 2016 | A little flier showed up early Monday morning on social media. A handful of Twitter users supporting various Republican presidential candidates tweeted a photo of slip of paper with a headline reading "$$$ Earn fast cash today! $$$" and an offer for $25 an hour to attend Jeb Bush's final campaign event at the Embassy Suites in downtown Des Moines. The implication: Bush was so desperate he was paying for faux supporters seven hours before the caucuses.

Radioactive waste dogs Germany despite abandoning nuclear power --Major problems at salt mine where 126,000 drums of radioactive debris are stored, fuelling public distrust of long-term waste disposal plans | 29 Jan 2016 | Half a kilometre beneath the forests of northern Germany, in an old salt mine, a nightmare is playing out. A scheme to dig up previously buried nuclear waste is threatening to wreck public support for Germany's efforts to make a safe transition to a non-nuclear future. Enough plutonium-bearing radioactive waste is stored here to fill 20 Olympic swimming pools...The race is on to dig it all up before radioactive residues are flushed to the surface.

University: Obama's TPP 'trade' deal will whack 448,000 jobs, not save them as promised | 28 Jan 2016 | A new university analysis of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal corporate takeover finds that President Barack Obama's promises of sweeping economic benefits are not only wrong, but that the treaty will actually hurt America, cut jobs, and further whack GDP. The analysis from the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University near Boston found that some 448,000 jobs will be eliminated in the trade deal and that Gross Domestic Product, promised to nudge up, will go down. It said that U.S. jobs would be "hardest hit" of all the 12 nations in the deal, a huge part of Obama's legacy agenda...A copy on the university's website details the potential disaster the trade [sic] deal with Asia could be for the United States, despite Obama's promises.

Iowa Official Criticizes Cruz Campaign Over 'Voting Violation' Mailer | 30 Jan 2016 | Iowa's secretary of state chastised the presidential campaign of Senator Ted Cruz on Saturday for sending a mailer that he said violated "the spirit of the Iowa caucuses" and misrepresented state election law. The mailer, flagged by a handful of Twitter users and confirmed as authentic by the Cruz campaign, included a warning of a "voting violation" in capital letters at the top of the page...The secretary of state, Paul D. Pate, called the effort "misleading."

Two Degrees of Separation: Marco Rubio to Infamous Gay Webcam Ring

February 1, 2016 by legitgov

Two Degrees of Separation: Marco Rubio to Infamous Gay Webcam Ring | 29 Jan 2016 | One line of investigation [of presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R)] has led to an after-hours 1990 arrest with a man named Angel Barrios in a public park well-known for gay cruising. And while it's completely speculative to suggest the two were there to get frisky -- though Trump supporters, as you can imagine, are salivating at the chance to cast Rubio as a closeted homosexual -- there's no guess-work needed in connecting Barrios, decades later, with one of the most notorious gay porn rings in Florida's history. On May 23, 1990, an 18-year-old Rubio was with Barrios and another teen at Alice C. Wainwright Park after dark when they were detained. The teens were booked that night around 9:30 p.m., though the misdemeanor charges were later dropped. Rubio and Barrios went on to share a townhouse while Rubio attended Santa Fe Community College...

Google Censors CLG Newsletter on Zika, TPP, and Snowden Rendition Plan; Warns Readers of 'Identity Theft' By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org | 01 Feb 2016 | Below is a screenshot showing just how far Google is determined to go to ensure that *no one* can read the CLG Newsletter. A message from Google appeared at the top of the body of Sunday's edition, which read: 'Be careful with this message. It contains content that's typically used to steal personal information.'

What inspired NSA best bud Google to warn all email recipients of the CLG Newsletter that it was a hazard, and to strip the links to all article summaries? Could it be the items linking the Zika outbreak to Oxitec's July 2015 release of genetically modified mosquitoes in Brazil to the disease? Or, could it be the story on Japan's lead negotiator for the TPP who resigned over corruption allegations? Maybe it was the article summary which covered documents that substantiated claims that a 'US plane with a connection to CIA black site programs was on call in Copenhagen ready to snatch NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as he was stranded in Moscow' in June 2013.

Genetically modified mosquitoes could be cause of Zika outbreak, critics say | 30 Jan 2016 | The latest contagious virus freaking out the globe, particularly women worried about birth defects, may have been caused by the presence of genetically modified mosquitoes (GMMs) in Brazil. With international health experts convening in Geneva to discuss the outbreak of and possible cures for the Zika virus, questions are being raised as to whether the GMMs are to blame. In mid-2012, British biotech company Oxitec released the super bugs with the aim of reducing the overall mosquito population that spreads dengue fever, the Zika virus, and chikungunya in northeast Brazil.

Are you afraid of snow?' | 30 Jan 2016 | Speaking on the frosted tundra of the Dubuque, Iowa regional airport, Donald Trump returned to Iowa to a hero's welcome as his hulking Boeing 757 staged a dramatic flyby before landing on a tiny airstrip. Then he offered children the chance to run through the airplane...Then he said he had 'a little bit of an idea,' asking if there were kids under age 10 present. 'Without their parents,' Trump insisted, 'we'll let them run through the plane!'
