March 16, 2015 by legitgov

Venezuela Sounds Alarm after Obama Invokes International Emergency Act | 10 March 2015 | Venezuelan foreign minister Delcy Rodriguez sent an alert to international solidarity groups this afternoon, indicating that recent actions taken by the US government are meant to justify "intervention," and do not correspond with international law. The warning came within 24 hours of an address made by US president Barack Obama, in which Venezuela was labeled an "unusual and extraordinary threat to [US] national security". While slapping a new set of sanctions on the South American nation, Obama declared a national emergency, invoking the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) against Venezuela.

March 16, 2015 by legitgov

Maduro wins decree powers to fight 'U.S. imperialism' [It's about time!] | 15 March 2015 | Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Sunday was given the right to rule by decree for nine months, as he continued to capitalize on the backlash created by recent U.S. sanctions. In a raucous session full of chanting and blistering speeches, the National Assembly, which is controlled by the ruling party, passed the "Anti-Imperialist Enabling Law for Peace." The law, which gives Maduro the ability to bypass congress in issuing security and defense legislation through December, is expected to go into effect Monday when it's published in the official gazette.

Israel election: Binyamin Netanyahu rules out Palestinian state as voting begins

March 16, 2015 by legitgov

Israel election: Binyamin Netanyahu rules out Palestinian state as voting begins | 16 March 2015 | Israel's prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has unequivocally ruled out the establishment of a Palestinian state as he vowed to strengthen construction of settlements in occupied east Jerusalem should he be re-elected on Tuesday. Netanyahu's comments reinforced his hardening message of recent days and confirmed his final abandonment of his at best tepid commitment to a two-state solution designed to see the creation of an independent Palestinian state. While his remarks will be seen in large part as election rhetoric designed to cement his standing with his country's hard right at a time when Netanyahu has been struggling in his campaign, they will further strain relations with the US and other key allies should he win a third consecutive term.

Chemicals from stain repellent disrupt brain signal in polar bears --Scientists have warned that a quarter of Canadian polar bears could be wiped out by the end of the century because of shrinking ice caps. Warming temperatures could destroy one tenth of the bear's habitat, affecting their ability to roam across huge expanses of ice to hunt for food and mate. | 16 March 2015 | Polar bears are suffering potentially harmful changes to their brains due to the accumulation of pollution in the arctic, according to a new study. Scientists have found that key processes in the brains of polar bears are being disrupted by man-made chemicals such as stain repellents and water-proofing treatments. They claim this could result in changes to polar bear behaviour and hormone balance that may ultimately affect their ability to survive.

March 16, 2015 by legitgov

Dems will try to override Christie veto today on Port Authority reform bill | 16 March 2015 | The state Senate is schedule for a veto override vote this afternoon on a Port Authority reform bill vetoed by the governor in December. While Democrats control the Senate and Assembly, they lack the two-thirds majority needed in either chamber for an override, and have never succeeded in pulling the GOP votes necessary to push through bills vetoed by the Republican governor. The senate's Democratic sponsors of the reform bill, S-2181, had been optimistic about the chances for an override, after Republicans had joined in approving it last fall without a single no-vote in the Senate or Assembly.

Ebola Is a Man-Made Virus From America; Why Go to Liberia for Vaccine Trials, Asks Monrovia Local --Reporter asked whether signing Ebola vaccine consent form was tantamount to a 'death warrant' for volunteers. [It is.] | 13 Mar 2015 | The United States is helping to lead a large study of two vaccines against Ebola..."When we look at Ebola, it came from America," [Most likely, Fort Detrick] said Sylvester George, a pastor's assistant, expressing doubts about the clinical trials at an information session. "It's a man-made virus. So why didn't they do this trial in America, but they decide to come to Liberia?" The phrase "Ebola prevention vaccine" is used rather than "Ebola vaccine," to help avoid the impression that the vaccine might cause Ebola. [It does.] ..."They said they want more Ebola patients because government is using them to make money," Samuel Weah said. "The more dead and infections, the more money."

In February, Mr Houda said Mr Abbott had prejudiced the trial of the Fairfield pair by reading out details of that video in Parliament.

Putin in film on Crimea: US masterminds behind Ukraine coup, helped train radicals --'They facilitated the armed coup.' | 15 March 2015 | The Ukrainian armed coup was organized from Washington, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated in an interview for a new documentary aired Sunday.

But we knew for sure that the real masterminds were our American friends," Putin said in a documentary, 'Crimea - The Way Home,' aired by Rossiya 1 news channel. "They helped training the nationalists, their armed groups, in Western Ukraine, in Poland and to some extent in Lithuania," he added.

Americans Evacuated After at Least 10 Aid Workers Had Possible Ebola Contact | 14 March 2015 | Several American aid workers, among at least 10 who might have come into contact with the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone, were evacuated on Saturday, according to a United States Embassy spokeswoman in the Sierra Leonean capital, Freetown. They will be the most Americans who have returned home over fears of exposure to the virus since an outbreak in three West African countries was declared last year. Another American aid worker, who was showing signs of illness, arrived in the United States on Friday evening, hours after a colleague with Ebola was flown from Sierra Leone to the clinical center of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md. That patient, a clinician who was not identified, tested positive for the virus on Tuesday, and investigators feared that he had exposed others to it.

Canada-wide demonstrations against proposed anti-terrorism law --Conservative government introduced legislation, known as Bill C-51, in January | 14 March 2015 | Demonstrators are gathering across Canada today to protest the government's proposed anti-terrorism legislation. Organizers say demonstrations will take place in dozens of cities in Canada, from Victoria to Halifax, in an event they have dubbed "Defend our Freedom." In Toronto, hundreds gathered at city hall to speak out against the proposed legislation, with many holding signs, chanting and drumming in protest of the bill they call dangerous, reckless and unacceptable. The wide-ranging bill would give police much broader powers and allow them to detain terror suspects and give new powers to Canada's spy agency.

March 14, 2015 by legitgov

Secret C.I.A. Fund Adds Millions to al-Qaeda Coffers --'God blessed us with a good amount of money this month,' Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, al-Qaeda's general manager, wrote in a letter to Osama bin Laden in June 2010. [No, not God. The CIA.] | 14 March 2015 | In the spring of 2010, Afghan officials struck a deal for $5 million to free an Afghan diplomat held hostage by al-Qaeda [incontrovertibly, *al-CIAduh*]. They first turned to a secret fund that the Central Intelligence Agency bankrolled with monthly cash deliveries to the presidential palace in Kabul, according to several Afghan officials involved in the episode. The C.I.A.'s contribution to al-Qaeda's bottom line, though, was no well-laid trap. It was just another in a long list of examples of how the United States...has sometimes inadvertently financed the very militants it is fighting.

Julian Assange to be questioned by Swedish prosecutors in London | 13 March 2015 | Lawyers for Julian Assange have claimed victory after a Swedish prosecutor bowed to pressure from the courts and agreed to break the deadlock in the WikiLeaks founder's case by interviewing him in London.
