Democrats back Obama as he readies immigration plan

November 20, 2014 by legitgov

Democrats back Obama as he readies immigration plan 20 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama planned on Thursday to ease the threat of deportation for about 4.7 million illegal immigrants, as leading Democrats lined up behind the U.S. leader in the face of Republican attacks. In a speech to be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET (0100 GMT), Obama will announce he will use his executive authority to allow these undocumented residents to legally apply for jobs and join American society, but without any guarantee of permanent residency or citizenship. The president will need the support of Democratic lawmakers to fend off Republican attempts, either next month or next year, to pass legislation undercutting the executive action.

Takata airbag victims looked like they had been shot or stabbed

November 20, 2014 by legitgov

Takata airbag victims looked like they had been shot or stabbed 20 Nov 2014 When police got to the scene of a minor car accident in Alhambra, California in September 2013, they thought the driver, Hai Ming Xu, had been shot in the face. A similar conclusion was reached by Orlando police responding to an accident a year later -- they believed that the driver, Hien Thi Tran, had been the victim of a stabbing that might have caused the accident. But what allegedly killed both drivers was the device put in their cars to protect them - an airbag manufactured by Takata. Lawsuits and police reports say these airbags have exploded with such force that they sent shrapnel flying into the car's drivers, fatally wounding Xu and Tran.

Senators slam industry's response to 'live grenade' air bags

November 20, 2014 by legitgov

Senators slam industry's response to 'live grenade' air bags 20 Nov 2014 An executive from Japan's Takata Corp apologized at a Senate hearing on Thursday to the victims of defective air bags that can rupture upon deployment and shoot metal shards into cars, but stopped short of taking full responsibility for deaths linked to the scandal. The hearing by the Senate Commerce Committee also focused on whether regulators [sic] and the auto industry have yet captured the full scope or the exact cause of the defect that has affected millions of vehicles and been linked to at least five deaths...Democratic Senator Ed Markey said the incident shows the need for a nationwide recall. "Every single one of these Takata air bags could be a ticking time bomb," he said. [Takata terrorist on future killer air-bag recall: 'It's difficult for me to answer yes or no' --Takata's airbags kill and maim more than ISIS, but the Wall Street-owned US government won't force a nationwide recall.]

Obama's immigration plan will offer millions of work permits, facilitate visas for foreign high-tech workers

Obama's immigration plan will offer millions of work permits, facilitate visas for foreign high-tech workers 20 Nov 2014 President Obama will announce new plans to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation in a prime-time address on Thursday evening, opening a political fight with Republicans who believe those plans exceed Obama's powers as president. In his 8 p.m. address, Obama is expected to say he will stop deportations for a certain group of illegal immigrants: parents whose children are already U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents...There are about 3.7 million illegal immigrants who meet those criteria, according to a report from the Migration Policy Institute. Under Obama's plan, some of them would also be able to apply for work permits, which now are available only to immigrants with legal status. In addition, Obama is expected to announce more efforts to protect the U.S. border and to facilitate visas for foreigners who pursue science, technology, engineering and math degrees in the United States. [Too bad Obama isn't helping US students with their college loan burdens, instead of providing incentives for freeloading American corporations to pay low wages to foreign high-tech workers.]

Judge: No Release for Illinois Man in Terror Case

November 20, 2014 by legitgov

Judge: No Release for Illinois Man in Terror Case --Prosecutor William Ridgway countered that jail may have actually hardened Tounisi's anti-American views. [!?!] 20 Nov 2014 A federal judge says a 20-year-old American accused of trying to join al-Qaida[al-CIAduh]-affiliated fighters in Syria will remain jailed pending trial. Abdella Ahmad Tounisi's lawyer asked at a Thursday hearing in Chicago for her client to be released to home confinement. Molly Armour argued that Tounisi was an immature 18-year-old when he was arrested at O'Hare International Airport in 2013 trying to board a plane to Turkey.

CIA wants to destroy thousands of internal emails covering spy operations and other activities 20 Nov 2014 A CIA plan to erase tens of thousands of its internal emails -- including those sent by virtually all covert and counterterrorism officers after they leave the agency -- is drawing fire from Senate Intelligence Committee members concerned that it would wipe out key records of some of the agency's most controversial operations [aka war crimes; torture; the 9/11 inside job; creation and perpetuation of al-CIAduh and I-CIA-SIS]. The agency proposal, which has been tentatively approved by the National Archives, "could allow for the destruction of crucial documentary evidence regarding the CIA's activities," Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein and ranking minority member Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., wrote in a letter to Margaret Hawkins, the director of records and management services at the archives.

N.S.A. Phone Data Collection Could Go On, Even if a Law Expires

November 20, 2014 by legitgov

N.S.A. Phone Data Collection Could Go On, Even if a Law Expires 19 Nov 2014 A little-known provision of the Patriot Act, overlooked by lawmakers and administration officials alike, appears to give President Obama a possible way to keep the National Security Agency's bulk phone records program going indefinitely -- even if Congress allows the law on which it is based to expire next year. Senate Republicans on Tuesday night used a filibuster to block consideration of a bill to end and replace the N.S.A. phone records program. The debate about what may happen next has played out based on a widely held premise: that the legal basis for the program, Section 215 of the Patriot Act, will expire on June 1, so if Congress remains gridlocked, the program will automatically shut down. [But] if the summer arrives and the program is facing a shutdown, Mr. Obama could invoke the provision to ask the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to keep it going.

House GOP passes bill allowing corporate-linked experts to advise EPA

November 20, 2014 by legitgov

House GOP passes bill allowing corporate-linked experts to advise EPA 20 Nov 2014 The House of Representatives passed a bill that would make it harder for scientists to guide the Environmental Protection Agency and easier for those with financial links to corporations to sit on the advisory panel. In a 229 – 191 vote led primarily by Republicans, the House [pea-brains] passed legislation on Tuesday dubbed H.R. 1422, which essentially restricts the EPA's ability to appoint scientists to its Science Advisory Board. The SAB is crucial in helping the EPA craft rules and regulations regarding pollution and public health.

SIGAR: Pentagon's $700M - $800M economic development in Afghanistan 'accomplished nothing'

November 20, 2014 by legitgov

SIGAR: Pentagon's $700M - $800M economic development in Afghanistan 'accomplished nothing' 18 Nov 2014 The US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) says he is investigating the Pentagon's efforts to spark that country's economic development, which cost between $700 million and $800 million and "accomplished nothing." SIGAR's chief, John Sopko, told reporters Tuesday, that the agency has opened an "in-depth review" into the Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO), a Defense Department unit aimed at developing war zone mining, industrial development and fostering private investments...More broadly, Sopko faulted the US government's economic development efforts in Afghanistan as "an abysmal failure," saying it lacked a single leader, a clear strategy or accountability.

CDC Admits Flu Vaccine Does Not Work - Influenza Outbreak on Fully Vaccinated Navy Ship 19 Nov 2014 Need proof that the seasonal flu vaccine is not effective? Look no further than the CDC's own publication admitting the fact: Influenza Outbreak in a Vaccinated Population. Earlier this year (2014) the CDC published a report documenting an influenza outbreak which occurred among fully vaccinated Navy personnel aboard the USS Ardent, a U.S. Navy minesweeper moored in San Diego, California while conducting training. Surprisingly, the CDC admits this is a common occurrence.

Obama poised to announce go-it-alone plan on immigration Thursday

November 19, 2014 by legitgov

Obama poised to announce go-it-alone plan on immigration Thursday 19 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama is set on Thursday to outline a controversial plan to relax U.S. immigration policy and grant relief from deportation to as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants in a go-it-alone move that will deepen a partisan divide with Republicans [who, incidentally, never acted on immigration policies]. Sources close to the administration said the rollout would include a televised speech by Obama on Thursday night laying out the plan followed by a trip to Las Vegas on Friday to build support...[In addition to the granting of millions of new work visas for undocumented workers,] Obama will act to help companies hire and retain high-skilled workers from abroad. [That way, wages are driven down across the board, and the US taxpayer will then foot the bill for workers at the poverty level, as we do for Wal-Mart employees, etc. Obama's actions are driven by Wall Street, as usual. Why do progressives demand and cheer such moves? --LRP]

The next snow was forecast to arrive by nightfall on Wednesday and dump another 3 feet (1 meter) of snow, he said.

Obama: I will send US troops to fight ISIS if they get nuclear weapons 18 Nov 2014 US President Barack Obama has, for the first time, admitted he would deploy US ground troops to Syria and Iraq to fight Islamic State - that is, if the extremist group obtained a nuclear weapon. "If we discovered that [Islamic State] had gotten possession of a nuclear weapon, and we had to run an operation to get it out of their hands, then, yes," Obama told reporters at a news conference in Brisbane, Australia, on Sunday. "I would order it." [Of course he will. All those Minot AFB nuclear 'oddities' are poised to hit pay-dirt: After the CIA supplies ISIS with a nuke, they'll have a nuke. --LRP]

Health Care Law Recasts Insurers as Obama Allies

Health Care Law Recasts Insurers as Obama Allies 17 Nov 2014 As Americans shop in the health insurance marketplace for a second year, President Obama is depending more than ever on the insurance companies that five years ago he accused of padding profits and canceling coverage for the sick...The insurers in turn have provided crucial support to Mr. Obama in court battles over the health care law, including a case now before the Supreme Court challenging the federal subsidies paid to insurance companies on behalf of low- and moderate-income consumers. Since Mr. Obama signed the law, share prices for four of the major insurance companies -- Aetna, Cigna, Humana and UnitedHealth -- have more than doubled, while the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index has increased about 70 percent.

Why Marxism is on the rise again

November 19, 2014 by legitgov

Why Marxism is on the rise again 4 July 2012 Sales of Das Kapital, Marx's masterpiece of political economy, have soared ever since 2008, as have those of The Communist Manifesto and the Grundrisse (or, to give it its English title, Outlines of the Critique of Political Economy). Their sales rose as British workers bailed out the banks to keep the degraded system going and the snouts of the rich firmly in their troughs while the rest of us struggle in debt, job insecurity or worse. Clearly, more than two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the former East Germany hasn't airbrushed its Marxist past. In 2008, Reuters reports, a survey of east Germans found 52% believed the free-market economy was "unsuitable" and 43% said they wanted socialism back.

Did pictures of Homeland Security vehicles massing near Ferguson get man fired? 18 Nov 2014 A Navy veteran in Missouri said he was fired from his job and called a terrorist for posting pictures to Facebook of Homeland Security vehicles massing near Ferguson. Mark Paffrath, who worked for the Drury hotel chain, said he could not believe what he was hearing when he was called into his boss's office last week, a couple of days after posting the pictures which he took in the parking lot of the hotel where he worked. The pictures he took and posted on Thursday were of dozens of vehicles marked with the logos of the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Protection Services. Paffrath said the large number of federal vehicles and employees arrived last week.

Voter Laws Scrutinized For Impact On Midterms

November 19, 2014 by legitgov

Voter Laws Scrutinized For Impact On Midterms 18 Nov 2014 In North Carolina, early voting was cut by seven days. In Kansas, 22,000 people were stopped from registering to vote because they lacked proof of citizenship. And in Texas, Democrats say the country's toughest voter ID law contributed to a one-term congressman losing a tight race to his Republican rival. After an Election Day that featured a wave of new voting restrictions across the country, data and details about who cast a ballot are being picked over to see if tighter rules swayed the outcomes of any races or contributed to the lowest voter turnout in 72 years.

Key Polar Bear Population Plummets in Alaska and Canada 17 Nov 2014 A key polar bear population fell nearly by half in the past decade, marked by a dramatic increase in deaths of young cubs, a new U.S.-Canada study says. Researchers chiefly blame shrinking sea ice from global warming. Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey and Environment Canada tagged and released polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea off Alaska and northwestern Canada from 2001 to 2010. The bear population shrank to about 900 in 2010, down from about 1,600 in 2004.
