George McGovern, liberal standard-bearer against Nixon in '72, dies

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

George McGovern, liberal standard-bearer against Nixon in '72, dies --Democrat George S. McGovern, a war hero who opposed the Vietnam War, was crushed by President Richard Nixon's Watergate-tainted campaign. A die-hard idealist, McGovern inspired scores of budding politicians. 21 Oct 2012 George S. McGovern, an icon of American liberalism who campaigned for the White House with moral fervor against President Richard M. Nixon and the Vietnam War but lost in a thundering landslide, has died. He was 90. McGovern died early Sunday morning while under hospice care in Sioux Falls, S.D., said family spokesman Steve Hildebrand. He had been hospitalized for various illnesses and injuries since suffering a serious fall last December.

The remarkable, unfathomable ignorance of Debbie Wasserman Schultz

October 21, 2012 by walden9

The remarkable, unfathomable ignorance of Debbie Wasserman Schultz 19 Oct 2012 On 29 May 2012, the New York Times published a remarkable 6,000-word story on its front page about what it termed President Obama's "kill list". It detailed the president's personal role in deciding which individuals will end up being targeted for assassination by the CIA based on Obama's secret, unchecked decree that they are "terrorists" and deserve to die...But Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic Congresswoman from Florida and the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, does not know about any of this. She has never heard of any of it. She has managed to remain completely ignorant about the fact that President Obama has asserted and exercised the power to secretly place human beings, including US citizens, on his "kill list" and then order the CIA to extinguish their lives. [So this is how the Democrats keep the believers believing -- they keep them in the dark, even at the very top of the party! -- MDR]

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

No habeas corpus for non-Afghans in American courts: US judge 20 Oct 2012 A US federal judge says non-Afghan prisoners held by the US military in Afghanistan cannot challenge their imprisonment and seek freedom in American courts. On Friday, US District Judge John Bates rejected arguments by lawyers for so-called third-country detainees at the Bagram Air Base, located 11 kilometers (7 miles) southeast of the city of Charikar in Afghanistan's Parwan province, that new circumstances and evidence allowed them to pursue habeas corpus petitions in American courts.

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

12 killed, 50 wounded in separate attacks in Iraq 20 Oct 2012 At least twelve people have been killed and 50 others have been injured in separate bombings and shooting incidents across Iraq. An Interior Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said eight people were killed and 49 others wounded when twin bombs went off in quick succession in the Baab al-Darwazah market area in Baghdad’s northern neighborhood of Kadhimiyah on Saturday, AFP reported. Police said most of the victims were women and children.

Flu vaccine clinics provide emergency training

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. dumps deadly vaccines on public while prepping for their next pandemic-for-profit: Flu vaccine clinics provide emergency training 20 Oct 2012 San Joaquin Public Health officials staged a mass vaccination exercise as part of their emergency response training in the event of a biological threat or epidemic. By offering free seasonal influenza shots, health officials were able to attract close to 400 members of the general public to two staging areas Friday morning. "We would use a mass vaccination clinic in case there was a vaccine that needed to get out to the community very quickly. Using point of dispensing is more appropriate to an anthrax attack for a defined portion of the community, where you need to get it out quickly - also antivirals and antibiotics that you need to get out in a hurry that the private sector is not prepared to handle," said emergency preparedness coordinator Roberto Alaniz, who is also senior deputy director of San Joaquin County Public Health Services.

Israeli naval vessels take control of Gaza boat

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

Israeli naval vessels take control of Gaza boat 20 Oct 2012 Israeli troops on Saturday commandeered a Gaza-bound ship that tried to break through Israel's blockade of the Hamas-ruled seaside strip, the military said. European lawmakers and other pro-Palestinian activists aboard did not resist, and the Finnish-flagged vessel was diverted to an Israeli port. The trip by the ship, Estelle, marked the latest challenge to the air, land and sea embargo of Gaza that Israel imposed after the militant Hamas group seized the territory in 2007.

CIA chiefs face arrest over horrific evidence of bloody 'video-game' sorties by drone pilots

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

CIA chiefs face arrest over horrific evidence of bloody 'video-game' sorties by drone pilots 20 Oct 2012 The Mail on Sunday today reveals shocking new evidence of the full horrific impact of US drone attacks in Pakistan. A damning dossier assembled from exhaustive research into the strikes' targets sets out in heartbreaking detail the deaths of teachers, students and Pakistani policemen. It also describes how bereaved relatives are forced to gather their loved ones' dismembered body parts in the aftermath of strikes. Filed in two separate court cases, it is set to trigger a formal murder investigation by police into the roles of two US officials said to have ordered the strikes. They are Jonathan Banks, former head of the Central Intelligence Agency's Islamabad station, and John A. Rizzo, the CIA's former chief lawyer.

No-Fly List Strands Man on Island in Hawaii

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

No-Fly List Strands Man on Island in Hawaii 20 Oct 2012 Hawaii is a paradise for most visitors. But it was Wade Hicks Jr.'s prison for five days. The 34-year-old from Gulfport, Miss., was stranded in the islands this week after being told he was on the FBI's no-fly list during a layover for a military flight from California to Japan. The episode left Hicks scrambling to figure out how he'd get home from Hawaii without being able to fly. Then he was abruptly removed from the list on Thursday with no explanation.

October 21, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Officials Say Iran Has Agreed to Nuclear Talks 21 Oct 2012 The United States and Iran have agreed for the first time to one-on-one negotiations over Iran's [alleged] nuclear program, according to Obama administration officials, setting the stage for what could be a last-ditch diplomatic effort to avert a military strike on Iran. Iranian officials have insisted that the talks wait until after the presidential election, a senior administration official said, telling their American counterparts that they want to know with whom they would be negotiating. 

Utah Newspaper Endorsement Slams Mitt Romney

October 20, 2012 by legitgov

Utah Newspaper Endorsement Slams Mitt Romney 19 Oct 2012 In a blow to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Utah's largest newspaper today slammed his candidacy and endorsed President Obama instead. Despite being credited for saving the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and making Utah his home at one time, the Salt Lake City Tribune said that the state's "favorite adopted son," Romney, has become "the party's shape-shifting nominee." "In considering which candidate to endorse, the Salt Lake Tribune editorial board had hoped that Romney would exhibit the same talents for organization, pragmatic problem-solving and inspired leadership that he displayed here more than a decade ago," the editorial board wrote. "Instead, we have watched him morph into a friend of the far right, then tack toward the center with breathtaking aplomb." [So a right-wing paper slams Romney and endorses Obama. That should tell you as much about Obama as it does about Romney. -- MDR]

Tribune endorsement: Too Many Mitts

October 20, 2012 by legitgov

Tribune endorsement: Too Many Mitts --Obama has earned another term (The Salt Lake Tribune) 19 Oct 2012 Sadly, it is not the only [Mitt] Romney, as his campaign for the White House has made abundantly clear, first in his servile courtship of the tea party in order to win the nomination, and now as the party’s shape-shifting nominee. From his embrace of the party’s radical right wing, to subsequent portrayals of himself as a moderate champion of the middle class, Romney has raised the most frequently asked question of the campaign: "Who is this guy, really, and what in the world does he truly believe?" The evidence suggests no clear answer, or at least one that would survive Romney’s next speech or sound bite. Politicians routinely tailor their words to suit an audience. Romney, though, is shameless, lavishing vastly diverse audiences with words, any words, they would trade their votes to hear. [Yes, Obama has served the corporate, military and imperialist ruling elite well. He has earned another term serving them. -- MDR.]

Press TV starts online petition to save news channel in Europe

October 20, 2012 by legitgov

Press TV starts online petition to save news channel in Europe 18 Oct 2012 Following the European satellite provider Eutelsat SA's illegal move to stop the broadcast of several Iranian satellite channels, Press TV launches an online petition to save Iran's English-language broadcaster across Europe. In a flagrant act of violating freedom of speech, the company on Monday stopped the broadcast of several Iranian satellite channels, including Press TV, al-Alam, Jam-e-Jam 1 and 2, Sahar 1 and 2, Islamic Republic of Iran News Network, Quran TV, and the Arabic-language al-Kawthar. It ordered media services company, Arqiva, to take the Iranian satellite channels off one of its Hot Bird frequencies.

Obama prepares protracted Afghanistan occupation

October 20, 2012 by walden9

Obama prepares protracted Afghanistan occupation 20 Oct 2012 With the US presidential election little more than two weeks away, the Obama administration is quietly preparing to keep tens of thousands of troops in Afghanistan. These preparations, little noted in the corporate media, are unfolding even as Obama and his running mate, Vice President Joseph Biden, tell voters that the 11-year-old war is to end in 2014. [There's your lesser evil for you. -- MDR]

US to Turn Over Emails in Manning Case

October 20, 2012 by legitgov

US to Turn Over Emails in Manning Case 18 Oct 2012 A U.S. judge ordered prosecutors Wednesday to hand over hundreds of emails by officers overseeing the detention of WikiLeaks suspect Pvt. Bradley Manning, who has alleged he suffered mistreatment at a Marine Corps brig. Lawyers for Manning, a U.S. Army private accused of passing a trove of secret government documents to the WikiLeaks website, had asked for the emails to bolster their argument that the soldier suffered illegal treatment when he was held at the Quantico Marine base in Virginia starting in 2010. At a pre-trial hearing at Fort Meade, Md., Judge Denise Lind said more than 600 emails withheld by prosecutors should be handed over to the defense.

Scott Brown Supporter From Ad Calls Elizabeth Warren 'D*****bag,' Obama a 'Muslim' On Facebook

October 20, 2012 by legitgov

Language warning: Scott Brown Supporter From Ad Calls Elizabeth Warren 'D*****bag,' Obama a 'Muslim' On Facebook 19 Oct 2012 Scott Brown recently got in hot water for falsely claiming that his Senate race opponent, Elizabeth Warren, was using paid actors in her commercials... In a television advertisement running as recently this week, Sen. Scott Brown's (R-Mass.) reelection campaign featured a union construction worker whose publicly accessible Facebook page is riddled with insults against Brown's Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren and President Barack Obama. On one post made in August, well before Brown's ad appeared, the worker, George Patriarca, calls Warren a "DOUCHEBAG." On another he labels the president a "faggot," and on a third he says, "there is a Muslim in the White House." [Mere distraction from the right-wing to provide cover for the fact that Obama is a corporate, military and imperialist shill.--MDR]

Gallup vs. the World

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

Gallup vs. the World By Nate Silver 18 Oct 2012 The Gallup national tracking poll now shows a very strong lead for Mitt Romney. As of Wednesday, he was ahead by six points among likely voters. Mr. Romney's advantage grew further, to seven points, when Gallup updated its numbers on Thursday afternoon. The Gallup poll is accounted for in the forecast model, along with all other state and national surveys. However, its results are deeply inconsistent with the results that other polling firms are showing in the presidential race, and the Gallup poll has a history of performing very poorly when that is the case... Usually, when a poll is an outlier relative to the consensus, its results turn out badly. [Democrats attempting to discredit pollsters -- a sign that things are not going their way! Either way, we lose. Who cares about one poll or even the "results" of a legitimating process for the ruling elite? -- MDR]

Arrests Second Suspect in Bomb Plot Against Bank 19 Oct 2012 The Bangladeshi man who was arrested Wednesday on charges that he plotted to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank of New York had an accomplice in San Diego, who was arrested later on unrelated child-p*rnography charges, a law enforcement official said on Thursday. The man described as the accomplice, Howard Willie Carter II, was arrested after an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation found [planted?] 1,000 images and three video files containing child p*rnography on a laptop and hard drive in the trash near Mr. Carter's apartment, according to a government document. Officials used material stored on the computer to trace it back to Mr. Carter.

Obama's daughters' school evacuated over suspicious package 18 Oct 2012 Sidwell Friends, the Washington D.C. private school that both Obama daughters attend, was evacuated Thursday due to a suspicious package, police officials say. Araz Alali, a spokesman for the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, said that the scene is now clear and that there is no evidence that the threat was directed at the First Family. According to the Washingtonian, this message was distributed to the school's emergency alert system: "This is an emergency message from Sidwell Friends School. Due to a suspicious phone call, the buildings on the Wisconsin Avenue campus have been evacuated. We will notify you when further information is available."

Navy to go after rats, mold in Gitmo legal offices [Too bad they don't go after the actual RATS behind the 9/11 terror attacks aka inside job, six ways to Sunday. --LRP] 19 Oct 2012 Legal offices that are so contaminated with mold and rat droppings that lawyers in the Sept. 11 terrorism trial have been getting sick [that's by design, obviously] will get a full clean-up and be evaluated by safety experts, a military official said Thursday.

Michael Lebowitz, one of the prosecutors in the case of five prisoners charged in the Sept. 11 attacks.

U.S. Navy, Allies Find Less Than Half the Sea Mines Planted in Key Exercise

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

U.S. Navy, Allies Find Less Than Half the Sea Mines Planted in Key Exercise 15 Oct 2012 A major international naval exercise last month in and around the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea, led by the U.S. Navy with more than 30 other nations participating, located fewer than half of the [29] practice mines laid at sea. This outcome of the highly publicized military drills -- not publicly known until now -- underscores how difficult it may be for the United States and its partners to detect and incapacitate waterborne explosive devices that Iran has threatened to plant if its nuclear facilities come under attack. The drill, dubbed International Mine Countermeasures Exercise 2012 or IMCMEX, brought together countries from all over the world at a time when tensions with Iran have been heating up exacerbated by the US and Israel.

Curfew Imposed on American Troops in Japan 20 Oct 2012 The United States military imposed a curfew on Friday on all of its nearly 50,000 uniformed personnel stationed in Japan, as it tried to respond to public outrage over the suspected rape of a woman in Okinawa by two American sailors. The commander of United States forces in Japan, Lt. Gen. Salvatore Angelella, apologized for the case, saying that American military personnel will also be required to take "core values training." The commander of United States forces in Japan, Lt. Gen. Salvatore Angelella, said the curfew from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. would take effect immediately at bases in Okinawa and the rest of Japan.

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

114k US contractors active in Afghan war 19 Oct 2012 There are currently more private contractors mercenaries working for the US military and other government agencies in Afghanistan than uniformed American military troops, reports indicate. As of July, nearly 114,000 contractors were working for the US Defense Department in Afghanistan, compared to the 90,000 American troops in the country at the time, AFP reported Thursday, quoting "official statistics."

Iraq records huge rise in birth defects

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

Iraq records huge rise in birth defects 18 Oct 2012 It played unwilling host to one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq war. Fallujah's homes and businesses were left shattered; hundreds of Iraqi civilians were killed. Its residents changed the name of their "City of Mosques" to "the polluted city" after the United States launched two massive military campaigns eight years ago. Now, one month before the World Health Organisation reveals its view on the legacy of the two battles for the town, a new study reports a "staggering rise" in birth defects among Iraqi children conceived in the aftermath of the war. High rates of miscarriage, toxic levels of lead and mercury contamination and spiralling numbers of birth defects ranging from congenital heart defects to brain dysfunctions and malformed limbs have been recorded... Similar defects have been found among children born in Basra after British troops invaded, according to the new research.

NY appeals court rules DOMA unconstitutional

October 19, 2012 by legitgov

NY appeals court rules DOMA unconstitutional 18 Oct 2012 A federal appeals court in New York ruled Thursday that the federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. The ruling, by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is the second decision by a court to rule DOMA as unconstitutional, according to The Associated Press. The controversial law, which went into effect in 1996, defines marriage as the legal union between one man and one woman. Under the law, the federal government does not recognize same-sex marriages conducted in states that have legalized same-sex and civil unions. The Manhattan court's decision upholds a previous ruling by a lower court on the law. The latest decision came from a trio of judges who said the law is in conflict with equal-protection laws.

44 TSA workers in New Jersey face firing or suspension 19 Oct 2012 The Transportation Security Administration is proposing to fire 25 employees at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey and to suspend 19 others as a result of an investigation into improper screening of checked luggage.

Eight employees were immediately fired in June.
