May 16, 2016 by legitgov

False flag busted? 'A perfect terror exercise:' Manchester United stadium 'bomb' identified as forgotten training device --Old Trafford evacuated after discovery of what turns out to be device left behind by company conducting training exercise | 16 May 2016 | A fake bomb planted by a security company as part of a training exercise at Old Trafford caused the cancellation of Manchester United's final Premier League game of the season when the firm forgot to take it away.

Army bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion on the dummy device, which was discovered in the toilets within the north-west quadrant, between the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand and the Stretford End.

Chaos at NV Democratic Convention; State Party Chair Flees Building as Sanders Supporters Demand Recount | 15 May 2016 | (Las Vegas) This situation escalated out of control when Roberta Lange, Chairwoman of the Nevada State Democratic Party and member of the national DNC Executive Committee subjectively called the results of a voice vote, adjourned the meeting using a gavel, and left. According to a Democratic Party spokesman, the national party or its Chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, "did not have a part in this." [LOL!] Nevada's Democratic caucus erupted into chaos Saturday night. Bernie Sanders supporters demanded 64 rejected pro-Sanders delegates listed in a "minority report" prepared by their campaign be allowed to participate in selecting delegates for the national convention. DNC leaders refused to reconsider their decision not to allow this, adjourned, and fled the building amid a chorus of boos; leaving hotel security and local police officers to handle the angry Sanders supporters.

U.S. Directs Public Schools to Allow Transgender Access to Restrooms

May 15, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. Directs Public Schools to Allow Transgender Access to Restrooms | 12 May 2016 | The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity. A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration's legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration - signed by Justice and Education department officials - will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against. It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration's interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid. [And yet: Obama has *no problem* w. top US ally -- the Sharia sociopaths of Saudi Arabia -- who execute gays.]

Trump Leads Clinton by 4 Points in OH; Candidates Close in FL and PA - Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll | 10 May 2016 | In a race marked by wide gender, age and racial gaps, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are running neck and neck in the key presidential Swing States of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, but Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont runs stronger against the likely Republican nominee, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today. The Swing State Poll focuses on Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania because since 1960 no candidate has won the presidential race without taking [or, as in the case of George W. Bush, stealing] at least two of these three states. Key results: FLORIDA: Clinton 43 - Trump 42; Sanders 44 - Trump 42 -- OHIO: Clinton 39 - Trump 43; Sanders 43 - Trump 41 -- PENNSYLVANIA: Clinton 43 - Trump 42; Sanders 47 - Trump 41.

Royal Canadian Police Summoned on Wi-Fi Threat | 11 May 2016 | The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, famed worldwide as "rescuers" and titans of justice, has been summoned by Capt.

Democratic Convention Hosted by Republican Donors, Anti-Obamacare Lobbyists

May 15, 2016 by legitgov

Democratic Convention Hosted by Republican Donors, Anti-Obamacare Lobbyists | 11 May 2016 | The 2016 convention in Philadelphia will be officially hosted by lobbyists and corporate executives, a number of whom are actively working to undermine progressive policies achieved by President Barack Obama, including health care reform and net neutrality. Some of the members of the 2016 Democratic National Convention Host Committee, whose job is to organize the logistics and events for the convention, are hardly even Democratic Party stalwarts, given that many have donated and raised thousands of dollars for Republican presidential and congressional candidates this cycle. The composition of the 15-member Host Committee may appear out of sync with the rhetoric of Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, but the reality is that the party, in the form of the Democratic National Committee, has moved decisively to embrace the lobbying industry.

Republicans win Obamacare legal challenge, add to insurer concerns

Republicans win Obamacare legal challenge, add to insurer concerns | 12 May 2016 | A U.S. judge on Thursday handed a victory to congressional Republicans who challenged President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, ruling that his administration overstepped its constitutional powers relating to government spending. U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer, based in Washington, ruled that the administration cannot spend billions of dollars in federal funds to provide subsidies under the law known as Obamacare to private insurers without the approval of Congress. At issue in the case, brought by the Republican-led House of Representatives, are reimbursements to insurance companies to compensate them for reductions that the law requires them to make to customers' out-of-pocket medical payments.

9/11 judge and prosecutors should step down over 'destroyed evidence', defense demands

May 12, 2016 by legitgov

9/11 judge and prosecutors should step down over 'destroyed evidence', defense demands | 11 May 2016 | An explosive allegation about destroyed evidence threatens to unravel the already shaky military tribunal for the alleged architect of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Attorneys for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed are calling on the judge and the entire prosecution team in Mohammed's military commission at Guantánamo Bay to step down from the long-running case over what a member of the defense team called "at least the appearance of collusion" that led to the government apparently secretly destroying information relevant to the premier post-9/11 tribunal. The defense team further argues that the destruction of evidence ought to spell the end of Mohammed's military trial entirely, a development that would leave the Obama administration and its successor to come up with an entirely new plan for what to do with the top terror suspect in US custody.

Saudi government part of support network for '9/11 hijackers', commission member says --'Our report should never have been read as an exoneration of Saudi Arabia.' | 12 May 2016 | A former Republican member of the 9/11 commission, breaking dramatically with the commission's leaders, said Wednesday he believes there was clear evidence that Saudi government employees were part of a support network for the '9/11 hijackers' [What about the explosives that were planted inside WTC 1, 2, and 7, and the Pentagon?] and that the Obama administration should move quickly to declassify a long-secret congressional report ['the 28 pages'] on Saudi ties to the 2001 terrorist attack. The comments by John F Lehman, an investment banker in New York who was Navy secretary in the Reagan administration, signal the first serious public split among the 10 commissioners since they issued a 2004 final report that was largely read as an exoneration of Saudi Arabia, which was home to 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11.
