Police scan social media to identify likely protesters for pre-emptive arrests - Thatcher funeral

April 9, 2013 by legitgov

Police scan social media to identify likely protesters for pre-emptive arrests - Thatcher funeral --Fears of civil disorder in capital as plans are revealed for partially state-funded ceremonial funeral --Meanwhile, lawyers warn against pre-emptive arrests as police scan social media to identify likely protesters 09 Apr 2013 Police are bracing themselves for the likelihood that Margaret Thatcher’s partially state-funded ceremonial funeral will attract protesters as anger mounts over her controversial legacy and the Government's decision to honour her with the help of taxpayers' money. Chatter on websites, social media and forums that are popular with protest networks has revealed multiple plans by groups to either demonstrate during the funeral itself or hold "Maggie's dead parties" on the same day... It is believed officers who specialise in public order issues are currently monitoring social media, websites and Blackberry's BBM messaging networks over the coming days for any sign of protest. The possibility of protests during the funeral has raised fears that police may adopt the controversial tactic of making pre-emptive arrests. [Margaret Thatcher labeled Nelson Mandela and the ANC 'terrorists.' In fact, Thatcher was the terrorist, along with her mentor, senile sociopath Ronald Reagan. --LRP]

April 9, 2013 by legitgov

North Korea warns foreigners to flee South Korea due to threat of nuclear war 09 Apr 2013 North Korea today warned foreigners to quit the South as desperate Kim Jong-un stepped up his preparations for all-out war. The dictator is thought to be plotting an attack on his neighbours on the peninsula and other countries after weeks of posturing and rhetoric. There are thousands of ex-pats and tourists in South Korea and a statement from Pyongyang's Asia-Pacific Peace Committee said: "The situation on the Korean peninsula is heading for a thermo-nuclear war. "In the event of war, we don’t want foreigners living in South Korea to get hurt."

The Patriot missile batteries were set up in the central district of Ichigaya and in the suburbs of Asaka and Narashino, Suga told reporters Tuesday. Suga had said Monday that the Japanese government would not publicize any missile-defense deployment, saying "It would show our strategy to North Korea."

Secret Tape: McConnell and Aides Weighed Using Judd's Mental Health and Religion as Political Ammo

April 9, 2013 by legitgov

Secret Tape: McConnell and Aides Weighed Using Judd's Mental Health and Religion as Political Ammo 09 Apr 2013 On February 2, Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the US Senate, opened up his 2014 reelection campaign headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky, and in front of several dozen supporters vowed to "point out" the weaknesses of any opponent fielded by the Democrats. "They want to fight? We're ready," he declared. McConnell was serious: Later that day, he was huddling with aides in a private meeting to discuss how to attack his possible Democratic foes, including actor/activist Ashley Judd, who was then contemplating challenging the minority leader. During this strategy session--a recording of which was obtained by Mother Jones--McConnell and his aides considered assaulting Judd for her past struggles with depression and for her religious views.

Republican senator aide planned to smear Ashley Judd's mental health 09 Apr 2013 An aide of Republican Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell [himself a pyschotic sack of corporate sh*t] has been recorded talking about attacking Ashley Judd as "emotionally unbalanced". The actress had considered running for the Democrats in Kentucky in 2014 but pulled out of the race last month. The February 2 recording obtained by nonprofit news organization Mother Jones outlines how McConnell hoped to discredit his potential opponent. "I assume most of you have played the, the game Whac-A-Mole?" McConnell can be heard saying. "This is the Whac-A-Mole period of the campaign... when anybody sticks their head up, do them out."

US naming force-fed Guantanamo prisoners --11 Guantanamo hunger strikers being force fed as of Monday - spokesman 08 Apr 2013 The U.S. government has begun notifying lawyers of Guantanamo Bay prisoners if the men they represent are being force-fed in a hunger strike that has dragged on for more than two months, though its extent remains in dispute. Cori Crider, a lawyer for Yemeni prisoner Samir Mukbel, said she received notification from the Department of Justice [sic] late last week that her client was being force-fed and was permitted to speak with him by phone Monday to confirm the report.

Big Pharma Pockets $711 Billion in Profits by Robbing Seniors, Taxpayers

April 9, 2013 by legitgov

Big Pharma Pockets $711 Billion in Profits by Robbing Seniors, Taxpayers 08 Apr 2013 Here's an outrage that must be changed: Big Pharma has been systematically price-gouging the Medicare program for seniors and people with disabilities -- and raking in billions in excessive profits. The 11 largest global drug companies made an astonishing $711 billion in profits over the 10 years ending in 2012, and they got a turbo-charged boost when the Medicare Part D prescription drug program started in 2006, according to an analysis of corporate filings by Health Care for America Now (HCAN). The drug companies hold the power to charge America's consumers whatever they want. Worse, Medicare -- the nation's largest purchaser of drugs -- is prohibited by law from seeking better prices. In 2006, the first year of Medicare's prescription drug program, the combined profits of the largest drug companies soared 34 percent to $76.3 billion. And unlike other industries, such as Big Oil, drug companies get something even better than a tax subsidy -- they get a government program.

Ottawa admits it approved request for foreign workers to replace RBC employees

Ottawa admits it approved request for foreign workers to replace RBC employees 08 Apr 2013 How an overseas outsourcing firm managed to get Ottawa’s nod to bring in foreign workers to replace 45 Canadian employees at the Royal Bank has become the centre of an official probe. On Monday, the federal government confirmed iGate, based in Fremont, Calif., was granted a positive labour market opinion (LMO), which is supposed to be issued only when an assessment determines the hiring will not take jobs away from available and qualified Canadians. While it is not clear if the temporary foreign workers from India have been working and reporting directly to RBC or iGate, the affected bank employees said they have been asked to train their replacements.

CIA Does Not Submit Congressionally Mandated Data Mining Report

April 9, 2013 by legitgov

CIA Does Not Submit Congressionally Mandated Data Mining Report 08 Apr 2013 Despite the CIA chief technology officer's stunning claim last month that "we fundamentally try to collect everything and hang on to it forever," the agency does not submit a congressionally mandated report on data mining, The Huffington Post has learned. That's because under the CIA's reading of the law, it doesn't do any data mining at all. A legal loophole allows it to skip submitting the report even though other agencies, like the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security, do.

Navy's New Laser Weapon Blasts Bad Guys From Air, Sea

April 9, 2013 by legitgov

Navy's New Laser Weapon Blasts Bad Guys From Air, Sea 08 Apr 2013 The U.S. Navy is set to field a powerful laser that can 'protect its ships' by blasting targets with high-intensity light beams. Early next year the Navy will place a laser weapon aboard a ship in the Persian Gulf where it could be used to fend off approaching unmanned aerial vehicles or speedboats. The Navy calls its futuristic weapon LAWS, which stands for the Laser Weapon System. What looks like a small telescope is actually a weapon that can track a moving target and fire a steady laser beam strong enough to burn a hole through steel. [Now, the good news:] A Navy video of testing conducted last summer off the coast of California shows how a laser beam fired from a Navy destroyer was able to set aflame an approaching UAV or drone, sending it crashing into the ocean. [Yup, every cloud has a silver lining.]

Newtown families to join Obama on Air Force One 08 Apr 2013 After a speech in Connecticut this afternoon on the subject of gun violence, President Obama will fly back to Washington today alongside family members of victims from last year's mass shooting in Newtown, CBS News has confirmed, as the victims' relatives head to the U.S. Capitol in an effort to lobby lawmakers on gun safety laws. Mr. Obama is slated to speak this afternoon at the University of Hartford - about an hour's drive from the small Connecticut town where 20 first-graders were gunned down at school late last year - in part of an ongoing push to build support for his proposed gun safety reforms.

Sebring airport might become home for drones

Sebring airport might become home for drones 08 Apr 2013 (FL) Drones are big business. For years, they have been primarily used by the military, which has employed unmanned aircraft like the Predator to hunt and kill. But an entirely new market is looming. Last year, Congress passed legislation mandating that the FAA figure out how to integrate the civilian use of drones into the national airspace, for uses ranging from assisting law enforcement and first responders, to farmers looking for more economical ways to check their crops. Part of that process is finding six sites around the nation for research and testing...

Arctic is opening up, report tells U.S. lawmakers 08 Apr 2013 Less ice and more opportunities for [US-engendered] conflict or cooperation: that's what lies ahead in the Arctic, a recent report prepared for the United States Congress shows. The report, called "Changes in the Arctic: Background and Issues," tells U.S. lawmakers that "due to observed and projected climate change [global warming], scientists have concluded that the Arctic will have changed from an ice-covered environment to a recurrent ice-free ocean (in summers) as soon as the late 2030s." The character of ice cover is also expected to change, the report notes: ice will become thinner, more fragile, and more regionally variable.

Tepco finds second pit leaking in Fukushima

Tepco finds second pit leaking in Fukushima 08 Apr 2013 A second underground storage pool is leaking radioactive water at the disaster-stricken Fukushima No. 1 power plant, operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Sunday. The first pool, No. 2, was found to have leaked 120 tons of highly radioactive water on Friday. The size of the leak at the second pool, No. 3, was confirmed at 3 liters late Sunday. The leaks are likely to force Tepco to review its storage strategy for the toxic [radioactive] water, which has become its biggest enemy.

ATF Wants 'Massive' Online Database to Find Out Who Your Friends Are

ATF Wants 'Massive' Online Database to Find Out Who Your Friends Are 05 Apr 2013 The ATF doesn't just want a huge database to reveal everything about you with a few keywords. It wants one that can find out who you know. And it won't even try to friend you on Facebook first. According to a recent solicitation from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the bureau is looking to buy a "massive online data repository system" for its Office of Strategic Intelligence and Information (OSII). The system is intended to operate for at least five years, and be able to process automated searches of individuals, and "find connection points between two or more individuals" by linking together "structured and unstructured data." Instead of requiring an analyst to manually search around for your personal information, the database should "obtain exact matches from partial source data searches" such as social security numbers (or even just a fragment of one), vehicle serial codes, age range, "phonetic name spelling," or a general area where your address is located. Input that data, and out comes your identity, while the computer automatically establishes connections you have with others.

France 'to buy US drones' 07 Apr 2013 In the midst of France's Operation Serval in Mali, Paris is considering buying US-made unarmed surveillance drones to boost its military capabilities, a source from the defence ministry told AFP on Friday. According to French weekly newspaper La Tribune, Paris made an official request to Washington to acquire US made Reaper drones - the same unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that the US adapted for targeted kills of 'al Qaeda' fighters [and civilians] in Pakistan.

Another day, another US/NATO war crime: NATO air strike kills 11 Afghan children, officials say 07 Apr 2013 A NATO air attack in eastern Afghanistan has killed 11 children, officials said Sunday, the latest case of civilian casualties which provoke great anger in the war-torn country.

The Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, "strongly condemned the ISAF air strike in Kunar that killed 11 children," in a statement issued by his office.

Democrats lose fight in Montana Senate over ballot measures

April 8, 2013 by legitgov

Democrats lose fight in Montana Senate over ballot measures 06 Apr 2013 Over loud objections from Democrats, Montana's Republican-controlled Senate on Friday voted to put proposals on the 2014 ballot that would tighten voter registration and restrict the rights of third parties to compete in general elections. The measures, which are expected to be approved by the Republican-majority House, do not need approval from the Democratic governor. Democrats tried to stall action on the bills through a rarely used parliamentary procedure, demanding that the vote be delayed until a missing Democratic senator was found and brought into the chamber. But Republicans moved forward anyway, prompting Democrats to leap to their feet, shout objections and pound on their desks with everything from coffee mugs to copies of the Montana constitution.
