Manhattan DA subpoenaed Port Authority records on projects and communications with Christie administration

April 13, 2014 by legitgov

Manhattan DA subpoenaed Port Authority records on projects and communications with Christie administration 13 Apr 2014 Joining at least three other investigations prompted by September's George Washington Bridge lane closures, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office has subpoenaed records related to projects by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and communications with Gov. Chris Christie's office, a source told The Star-Ledger. A source with knowledge of the subpoena said it was issued last month by District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., Manhattan's highest-level state prosecutor. It means Vance now joins the hunt for evidence of wrongdoing stemming from the so-called Bridgegate scandal that already includes federal prosecutors at the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark, a special joint committee of the New Jersey legislature, and the Port Authority's own inspector general's office.

Kiev to launch 'full-scale' military op as massive protests grip eastern Ukraine 13 Apr 2014 Thousands of pro-autonomy demonstrators rallied across eastern Ukraine, with the coup-imposed president in Kiev threatening to use military against the activists if they don't clear the seized government buildings by Monday morning. Over 10,000 people have taken part in protests in different town and villages of the Donetsk Region in Ukraine, the local administration said. In the region's capital, Donetsk, the local government headquarters still remain under the anti-Maidan activists' control.

Ukraine on brink of civil war after blood was spilt in east - Yanukovich

April 13, 2014 by legitgov

Ukraine on brink of civil war after blood was spilt in east - Yanukovich 13 Apr 2014 Ukraine is a foot in the door to civil war, ousted President Viktor Yanukovich said in his address from Rostov-on-Don, where he has been residing for over a month after fleeing Kiev amid protests. "Blood was spilt today," Yanukovich told journalists referring to the events in the eastern city of Slavyansk. "Now our country finds itself in a totally new situation - with one foot in the door of a civil war. The Kiev junta has issued a criminal order to use armed forces and the army against the protesters." Part of the responsibility for dragging the country into domestic war lays on the US, which brutally interfere in the situation and to point out what to do, Yanukovich said. The ousted president declared that CIA director John Brennan visited Ukraine and it was after the meeting that the coup-imposed authorities in Kiev ordered a military operation in the country's east.

The sorties will begin next month, with UK pilots under orders to respond forcefully to any violations of the airspace of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The four Typhoons will be based at Siauliai in Lithuania where they will join a detachment of four Polish MiG-29s. The Danish Air Force is providing four F-16 aircraft.

Iraq insurgents use water as weapon after seizing dam

April 13, 2014 by legitgov

Iraq insurgents use water as weapon after seizing dam 11 Apr 2014 Insurgents in Iraq have added water to their arsenal of weapons after seizing control of a dam in the west of the country that enables them to flood certain areas and prevent security forces from advancing against them. The dam helps distribute water from the Euphrates river on its course through the western province of Anbar, and is located some 5 km south of the city of Falluja, which was overrun by militants early this year. Iraqi troops have since been surrounding Falluja and shelling the city in an effort to dislodge anti-government tribes and insurgent factions including the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Rupert Murdoch Reveals His Top Choices for 2016, Says He 'Could Live With Hillary'

April 13, 2014 by legitgov

Rupert Murdoch Reveals His Top Choices for 2016, Says He 'Could Live With Hillary' [Ergo, we should not.] 10 Apr 2014 Billionaire media tycoon Rupert Murdoch provided a wish list for the 2016 presidential race in a rare interview published Thursday. "It's not necessarily, although slightly, in order of preference: Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, whom I have particular admiration for. I do for both. [Chris] Christie could recover," he said. "Scott Walker, whom I don't know, and Rand Paul, whom I agree with on a great number of things but disagree strongly on some things -- too strongly perhaps to vote for him." Murdoch said he disagrees with Paul most strongly on foreign policy. But how would the conservative mogul react to a Hillary Clinton presidency? "I could live with Hillary as President," he told Fortune.

Flight MH370 co-pilot tried to make mid-flight phonecall, report claims

April 12, 2014 by legitgov

Flight MH370 co-pilot tried to make mid-flight phonecall, report claims 12 Apr 2014 The co-pilot of the missing Malaysian airliner MH370 tried to make a mid-flight call from his mobile phone just before the plane vanished from radar screens, according to Malaysian newspaper reports. The call ended abruptly possibly "because the aircraft was fast moving away from the [telecommunications] tower," the New Straits Times quoted a source as saying. However, the Malaysian daily also quoted another source saying that while Fariq Abdul Hamid's "line was reattached", there was no certainty that a call was made from the Boeing 777 which vanished on 8 March.

CIA and White House under pressure after Senate torture report leaks

April 12, 2014 by legitgov

CIA and White House under pressure after Senate torture report leaks 11 Apr 2014 A leak of the major findings of a landmark Senate inquiry into the CIA's post-9/11 torture of terrorism detainees led, on Friday, to intensified pressure on the White House and the CIA to release the inquiry speedily and with a minimum of redactions. The classified study, prepared by the Senate select committee on intelligence, concluded that the CIA's interrogations, secret detentions and outsourced torture sessions were "brutal, and far worse than the agency communicated to policymakers." More suspected terrorists underwent the agency's post-9/11 treatment, which largely lasted from 2002 to 2006, than the CIA has publicly admitted, according to the report's findings, which were first reported by McClatchy.

Russians warned if they go abroad, US secret services might snatch them

April 12, 2014 by legitgov

Russians warned if they go abroad, US secret services might snatch them 11 Apr 2014 Russia's Foreign Ministry is warning that Russians should refrain from traveling abroad because they could be entrapped by US secret services who are actively "hunting" for Russians to persecute in punishment for Moscow's recent annexation reunification of Crimea, according to an official notice published on the Ministry's website. It says the US, which "unreasonably" refuses to accept the reunification of Russia and Crimea, is seeking revenge by "trying to make a routine practice of 'hunting' for Russian citizens in third countries with the goal of extraditing them to the US, where they will be convicted [and jailed] on what are usually doubtful charges." And it adds that "justice in America" is biased against Russians, who can be "kidnapped" [think CIA and extraordinary rendition] and taken to the US without even notifying Russian consular officials about what is happening.

Armed men seize police department in east Ukraine: minister 12 Apr 2014 Armed men have seized a police department in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slaviansk, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on Saturday, the latest public building to be taken over in the east as Pro-Russian protesters stand off against Kiev. "Armed men in camouflage uniforms seized the police department in Slaviansk. The response will be very tough because there is a difference between protesters and terrorists," Avakov wrote, via social media. A local police spokesman told Reuters the men had not made any demands, but did not give any details on their identity.

April 12, 2014 by legitgov

FBI secretly worked in Iraq, Afghanistan: Report 12 Apr 2014 The Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have secretly worked with American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan in hundreds of operations, according to a new report. The FBI formed an alliance with Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and deployed its agents in hundreds of raids in Iraq and Afghanistan, The Washington Post reported on Friday. JSOC took advantage of the agency's ability to utilize digital media to identify suspects... The agents who participated in these military raids by JSOC, described by retired General Barry McCaffrey as the "most dangerous people on the face of the earth," and came from the FBI's Hostage and Rescue Team (HRT).

Heads up! Harford officials test responses to terrorist attack on nearby nuclear power plant 11 Apr 2014 Harford County's Emergency Operations Center a few miles north of Bel Air was packed Tuesday, as county, state and municipal emergency officials responded to a mock attack on the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in nearby Delta, Pa. "This is a drill," Rick Ayers, Harford's deputy director of emergency services and the county's emergency manager, repeated throughout the exercise, which began shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday and extended into Wednesday. Evaluations of Harford County "reception centers," where people would report in the event of a radiological release, as well as local shelters, were held Wednesday, Ayers said.

New Rule Prohibits Voters in Miami-Dade County From Using Restroom, No Matter How Long the Line

April 12, 2014 by legitgov

New Rule Prohibits Voters in Miami-Dade County From Using Restroom, No Matter How Long the Line 10 Apr 2014 During the 2012 presidential election, voters reportedly waited on line for upwards of six hours. That wait alone is enough to deter would-be voters from going to the polls. But now residents in Florida's most populous county will have another disincentive: they won't be able to go to the bathroom. Earlier this year, the Miami-Dade County Elections Department quietly implemented a policy to close the bathrooms at all polling facilities, according to disability rights lawyer Marc Dubin.

Report: NSA Knew About Heartbleed Vulnerability for Years, Used It to Collect Intelligence 11 Apr 2014 The National Security Agency had been aware of the recently discovered Heartbleed vulnerability for more than two years and did nothing to inform consumers, according to a new report from Bloomberg News. Citing anonymous sources, Bloomberg claimed that the NSA exploited Heartbleed -- a flaw in common Internet encryption that left passwords and other vital information visible to and obtainable by hackers -- to collect intelligence on web surfers.

Former APD Officer Sentenced for Criminal Database Snooping 11 Apr 2014 A prosecutor with the state Office of Special Prosecutions and Appeals said former Anchorage Police Department officer Mark Moeller had a lot going for him before "he acted incredibly stupid." Moeller was sentenced to no jail time in court Friday following a partial plea agreement in the case, which revolved around misconduct charges he faced for illegally using a law enforcement computer system to run searches on family and friends. In the agreement, Moeller pleaded guilty to two charges -- felony criminal use of a computer, as well as misuse of confidential information.

Inside the FBI's secret relationship with US elite assassination team, JSOC

Inside the FBI's secret relationship with US elite assassination team, JSOC --FBI agents were regularly involved in shootings, sometimes fighting side by side with the military - James Davis, the FBI's legal attache 10 Apr 2014 ...FBI officials have become more willing to discuss a little-known alliance between the bureau and the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) that allowed agents to participate in hundreds of raids in Iraq and Afghanistan. The FBI's presence on the far edge of military operations was not universally embraced, according to current and former officials familiar with the bureau's role. As agents found themselves in firefights, some in the bureau expressed uneasiness about a domestic law enforcement agency stationing its personnel on battlefields.

White House denies visa to Iran's pick for UN ambassador

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

White House denies visa to Iran's pick for UN ambassador 11 Apr 2014 The Iranian diplomat picked to be the Islamic republic’s ambassador to the United Nations will not be allowed to enter the United States where the UN is headquartered, Reuters has reported. White House press secretary Jay Carney confirmed to the newswire on Friday afternoon that Hamid Aboutalebi -- Iran's recent pick as envoy to the UN -- will not be granted an American visa, effectively barring him from beginning his ambassadorship. "The US Senate action to bar Aboutalebi's entry as Iran's designated ambassador at the UN is sheer interference in the internal affairs of the UN," Mohammad Hassan Asafari, a member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said earlier in the week. "The Americans are not entitled to the right to oppose the entry of the Islamic Republic of Iran's representative at the UN and the US Senate approval is illegal." [*Illegal.* Exactly, but for some reason, that never stops USociopaths.]

NATO's 'Russian troop build-up' satellite images show 2013 drills

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

NATO's 'Russian troop build-up' satellite images show 2013 drills 10 Apr 2014 The satellite images released by NATO that allegedly show a current build-up of Russian troops near Ukrainian border were taken in August 2013 amid military drills, a source in the General Staff of the Russian Army has said. NATO's top military commander in Europe, General Philip Breedlove, on Wednesday claimed that there is evidence of what he says are 40,000 Russian troops on the border with Ukraine, tweeting a link to satellite images. There is one problem, though: the images were taken some eight months before the stated date, the source said. "These shots, which were distributed by NATO, show Russian Armed Forces units of the Southern Military District, which in the summer of last year were taking part in various drills, including near the Ukrainian border," the General Staff official told RIA Novosti.

Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers for their parents' decades-old debts

Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers for their parents' decades-old debts 10 Apr 2014 A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice's tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government -- a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them. Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family -- it's not sure who -- in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years after Sadie Grice died, the government is coming after her daughter.

"We are very confident that the signals that we are detecting are from the black box," Mr Abbott said.

Angela Merkel denied access to her NSA file 10 Apr 2014 The US government is refusing to grant Angela Merkel access to her NSA file or answer formal questions from Germany about its surveillance activities, raising the stakes before a crucial visit by the German chancellor to Washington. Merkel will meet Barack Obama in three weeks, on her first visit to the US capital since documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA had been monitoring her phone. The face-to-face meeting between the two world leaders had been intended as an effort to publicly heal wounds after the controversy, but Germany remains frustrated by the White House's refusal to come clean about its surveillance activities in the country.

British gave 'full co-operation' for CIA black jail on Diego Garcia, report claims

British gave 'full co-operation' for CIA black jail on Diego Garcia, report claims --Fresh claims emerge of high-level British government involvement in the programme 10 Apr 2014 The British government allowed the CIA to run a "black" jail for Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] suspects on the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia, it was claimed last night. The report, based on leaked accounts of a US Senate investigation into the CIA's kidnap and torture programme after 9/11, contradicts years of British government denials that it allowed the US to use Diego Garcia for its "extraordinary rendition" programme. The alleged Diego Garcia black site was used to hold some "high-value" detainees and was made with the "full co-operation" of the British government, according to Al Jazeera America, quoting US officials familiar with the Senate report.

U.S. explosives litter Afghan land, killing and maiming a rising number of Afghan children

April 11, 2014 by legitgov

U.S. explosives litter Afghan land, killing and maiming a rising number of Afghan children 10 Apr 2014 As the U.S. military withdraws from Afghanistan, it is leaving behind a deadly legacy: about 800 square miles of land littered with undetonated grenades, rockets and mortar shells. The military has vacated scores of firing ranges pocked with the explosives. Dozens of children have been killed or wounded as they have stumbled upon the ordnance at the sites, which are often poorly marked. Casualties are likely to increase sharply; the U.S. military has removed the munitions from only 3 percent of the territory covered by its sprawling ranges, officials said. Clearing the rest of the contaminated land -- which in total is twice as big as New York City -- could take two to five years. [They don't 'hate us for our freedoms.' They hate us because we're sociopaths.]

Shoe thrown at Hillary Clinton at Vegas speech 10 Apr 2014 Hillary Rodham Clinton was ready with a quip after a woman threw a shoe at her as she took the stage for a Las Vegas speech. Security at the Mandalay Bay casino resort ushered out the woman, who said she threw a shoe at the former secretary of State. Authorities indicated the woman would be arrested. The Clinton incident evokes a 2008 event in which an Iraqi journalist threw shoes at President [sic] George W. Bush in Baghdad.

Governments wasting billions of dollars stockpiling flu drug Tamiflu

Governments wasting billions of dollars stockpiling flu drug Tamiflu --Medicines had few if any beneficial effects, but did have adverse side effects previously dismissed or overlooked 10 Apr 2014 Researchers who have fought for years to get full data on Roche's flu medicine Tamiflu said on Thursday that governments who stockpile it are wasting billions of dollars on a drug whose effectiveness is in doubt. In a review of trial data on Tamiflu, and on GlaxoSmithKline's flu drug Relenza, scientists from the respected research network the Cochrane Review said that...there is no good evidence behind claims they cut hospital admissions or lessen complications of the disease. "There is no credible way these drugs could prevent a pandemic," said Carl Heneghan, one of the lead investigators of the review and a professor of evidence-based medicine at Britain's Oxford University. [Want to know why the US government stockpiles that garbage in the first place? See: Rumsfeld's growing stake in Tamiflu --Defense Secretary, ex-chairman of flu treatment rights holder, sees portfolio value growing. 31 Oct 2005 The prospect of a bird flu outbreak is proving to be very good news for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other politically connected investors in Gilead Sciences, the California biotech company that owns the rights to Tamiflu, the influenza remedy that's now the most-sought after drug in the world. Rumsfeld served as Gilead's chairman from 1997 until he joined the Bush regime in 2001, and he still holds a Gilead stake valued at between $5 million and $25 million, according to federal financial disclosures filed by Rumsfeld. The forms don't reveal the exact number of shares Rumsfeld owns, but in the past six months fears of a pandemic and the ensuing scramble for Tamiflu have sent Gilead's stock from $35 to $47.]

'Range war' with BLM: Hundreds rally for Nevada cattle rancher

April 10, 2014 by legitgov

'Range war' with BLM: Hundreds rally for Nevada cattle rancher 07 Apr 2014 Wielding signs and slogans, several hundred demonstrators rallied Monday to support beleaguered Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy after authorities began to seize his cattle from federal land.  Protesters had responded to an alert that promised: "Range war begins at the Bundy ranch at 9:30 a.m. We're going to get the job done!" Federal officials say Bundy is illegally running cattle in the 600,000-acre Gold Butte area, habitat of the federally protected desert tortoise. A federal judge ruled last year that if Bundy did not remove his cattle, they could be seized by the Bureau of Land Management. That seizure began Saturday.

NORAD Exercises: Fighter Jets Train Over Central Iowa 09 Apr 2014 Residents between Fort Dodge and Waterloo may have noticed some low flying jets Wednesday afternoon. The flights, which involved fighter jets in close proximity to a military-controlled civilian plane, are part of the North American Aerospace Defense Command training exercises. NORAD conduct exercises so they are able to respond to airspace restriction violations, hijackings and unknown aircraft. [Yeah, except on 9/11, when Dick Cheney ordered NORAD to stand down, so the attacks could proceed as planned.]
