July 15, 2013 by legitgov

UK fraud prosecutor charges 2 brokers in Libor probe 15 Jul 2013 Britain's fraud prosecutor charged two former brokers at interdealer broker RP Martin with conspiracy to defraud, related to its investigation into the rigging of Libor global interest rates. The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) said it charged Terry Farr, 41, and James Gilmour, 48, on Monday. They will appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court at a later date, it said. The pair were arrested on Dec. 11, 2012, along with former UBS and Citigroup trader Tom Hayes.

Snowden docs contain NSA 'blueprint' - Greenwald 14 Jul 2013 Edward Snowden has very sensitive "blueprints" detailing how the National Security Agency operates that would allow someone who read them to evade or even duplicate NSA surveillance, a journalist close to the intelligence leaker said Sunday. Glenn Greenwald, a columnist with The Guardian newspaper who closely communicates with Snowden and first reported on his intelligence leaks, told The Associated Press that the former NSA systems analyst has "literally thousands of documents" that constitute "basically the instruction manual for how the NSA is built." "In order to take documents with him that proved that what he was saying was true he had to take ones that included very sensitive, detailed blueprints of how the NSA does what they do," Greenwald said in Brazil, adding that the interview was taking place about four hours after his last interaction with Snowden.

Suicide kills more British soldiers and veterans than Afghan war 15 Jul 2013 The UK's Ministry of Defence has confirmed more British soldiers and veterans committed suicide last year than died while fighting in Afghanistan. Last year seven serving British soldiers killed themselves, while a further 14 died in suspected suicides, not yet confirmed by inquest. The British government does not keep a record of suicides by former military personnel, but an investigation by the BBC's Panorama program found at least 29 veterans also committed suicide in 2012.

Trial to measure lawfulness of Pa. voter ID law

July 15, 2013 by legitgov

Trial to measure lawfulness of Pa. voter ID law 14 Jul 2013 A trial set to begin Monday on the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's voter identification law represents a major step toward a judicial ruling on whether the photo requirement should be enforced at polling places statewide or thrown out as unconstitutional. Nine days are set aside for the trial in Harrisburg in Commonwealth Court. Civil libertarians challenging the law and state officials defending it say they expect the state Supreme Court will ultimately decide the case. At issue is a voter ID law that would be one of the strictest in the nation if it is upheld but has never been enforced.

Snowden has information that could be the US's 'worst nightmare,' journalist says

July 15, 2013 by legitgov

Snowden has information that could be the US's 'worst nightmare,' journalist says 13 Jul 2013 Former CIA contractor and self-declared leaker Edward Snowden possesses information that could badly damage the United States if revealed, the journalist who first published the leaked documents said in a newspaper interview. "Snowden has enough information to cause more harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had in the history of the United States," Guardian blogger and columnist Glenn Greenwald told the Argentinean daily La Nacion in an interview published Saturday. "But that is not his objective." He told the newspaper that Snowden has already distributed thousands of documents and has made sure several people around the world have all the files he possesses. "If anything were to happen to him, those documents would be made public," Greenwald said. "That's his insurance policy."

U.S. Military wastes $34m on lavish HQ on an Afghan base that will NEVER BE USED

U.S. Military wastes $34m on lavish HQ on an Afghan base that will NEVER BE USED --A two-story facility was built on Camp Leatherneck in southern Afghanistan in spite of official warnings that it was unnecessary --Building is too costly for the Afghan army to maintain, and the outlets won't even work for their equipment because they are American plugs --Just one of a handful of similar expensive projects that were laid to waste 10 Jul 2013 The U.S. military has spent $34million building a state-of-the-art building on a base in southern Afghanistan that no American soldiers will ever use. Military officials warned that the proposed building was an example of wasteful spending three years ago when the construction began but their warnings went unheeded and the contractors [corpora-terrorists] built the expansive two-story facility anyway. Now a special inspector general who is reviewing spending in Afghanistan has written a scathing letter to the Secretary of Defense saying that the building, which is in the compound of Camp Leatherneck, is symbolic of the overwhelming bureaucracy in the region.

'Radioactivity found in Swiss lake' near nuclear plant --Discovery raises concerns about safety practices and lack of transparency at Muehleberg nuclear plant in northwestern Switzerland 14 Jul 2013 Scientists have discovered a radioactive substance in sediment under a Swiss lake used for drinking water and situated near a nuclear plant, the Le Matin Dimanche weekly reported Sunday. The plant is believed to have caused a spike in cesium 137 found in the sediment of Lake Biel and dating back to 2000 through the discharge of contaminated waste water into the Aar river that feeds into the lake, about 20 kilometres (12 miles) downstream, the weekly reported.

Group gathers in Baltimore to protest Zimmerman verdict 14 Jul 2013 A group of speakers in Baltimore expressed outrage Sunday morning at the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin, saying the finding of the Florida jurors sent a message that young black men fail to get fairness from the judicial system. Members of the Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly spoke at McKeldin Square in the Inner Harbor as a kickoff to what they say would begin two more events, rallies at 5 p.m. Sunday and another at the same time Monday. About a dozen people attended the 9 a.m. gathering -- which was overseen at a distance by a group of city police officers with their vehicles.

Demonstrators gather in LA's Leimert Park to protest Zimmerman verdict 13 Jul 2013 People began gathering in Leimert Park on Saturday night to protest the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to police and social media reports. "We are getting reports that people are starting to gather," said LAPD Officer Phillip Ahn. "It's in its infancy." Ahn said police units have been dispatched to the scene "to stand by." [The corrupt, violent state that allows Trayvon Martin-style shootings brainwashes the corrupt, violent media which in turn brainwashes the people to *never* resort to violence as a tactic --and, therefore, perpetuates what the state does. See how it works? That way, nothing ever changes. --LRP]

Zimmerman acquitted on all charges in Trayvon Martin case --Case sparked national debate on issues including race and profiling 13 Jul 2013 George Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges on Saturday for the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in this central Florida town in February of last year. If he had been convicted, the 29-year-old former neighbourhood watch volunteer, who claimed he acted in self-defence, could have been sentenced to life in prison for second-degree murder or up to 30 years for manslaughter.

Zimmerman Is Acquitted of Murder and Manslaughter 13 Jul 2013 George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution's contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death.

"A bomb exploded while worshippers were leaving the mosque of Khalid Bin al-Waleed. Bodies were thrown back by the power of the explosion," said a policeman at the scene of the blast in Doura.

Snowden documents could be 'worst nightmare' for U.S.: journalist 13 Jul 2013 Fugitive former U.S. spy contractor Edward Snowden controls dangerous information that could become the United States' "worst nightmare" if revealed, a journalist familiar with the data said in a newspaper interview. Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who first published the documents Snowden leaked, said in a newspaper interview published on Saturday that the U.S. government should be careful in its pursuit of the former computer analyst. "Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had," Greenwald said in an interview in Rio de Janeiro with the Argentinean daily La Nacion.

The Staged Malala Yousafzai Story: Neoliberal near-Martyr of the Global Free Market Wars

July 13, 2013 by legitgov

The Staged Malala Yousafzai Story: Neoliberal near-Martyr of the Global Free Market Wars by Scott Creighton 11 Oct 2012 Two days after the Pakistani military put down a protest against U.S. drone strikes killing innocent civilians in Pakistan, along comes the fake Taliban to claim credit for shooting little innocent Malala in cold blood... Bring in the professional photographers and the acting lessons for little miss "grief stricken" from corporate artisans like those at Hill & Knowlton who taught Nayirah al-Ṣabaḥ to lie to the U.S. congress about a bunch of mean-old Iraqis who took babies from their incubators and threw them on the cold floor. You can expect a staring performance by Malala in front of some kind of congressional committee just as soon as she "recovers" from her "wounds." The "brave Malala" story is completely fake just like the Jessica Lynch story, just like the Nurse Nayirah story, just like the Nada story from Iran. It's a marketing campaign, selling war via emotional contextualism dependent on high levels of cognitive dissonance.

US firms ordered to pay over Agent Orange

US firms ordered to pay over Agent Orange 12 Jul 2013 South Korea's highest court has upheld a ruling ordering two US Agent Orange makers to compensate 39 Vietnam War veterans in one of the country's most prominent lawsuits. The Supreme Court recognised the epidemiological correlation between the toxic defoliant and skin diseases for the first time, saying the 39 victims should receive a total of 466 million won ($A454,445) from [corpora-terrorists] Dow Chemical and Monsanto. The veterans had complained that Agent Orange was responsible for skin diseases such as "chemical acne", which is caused by exposure to dioxin contained in Agent Orange, the court said. [Gee, Monsanto was poisoning soldiers (and civilians) back in the 1960s with Agent Orange and now poisoning everyone by poisoning the food supply, backed by Obusha and the US Congress. --LRP]

Opponents want Calif. court to stop gay weddings

July 13, 2013 by legitgov

Opponents want Calif. court to stop gay weddings 12 Jul 2013 Opponents of same-sex marriage say they are asking the California Supreme Court to order county clerks to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The group that sponsored the 2008 ballot measure banning gay marriage in the state said it filed a petition on Friday that makes a two-pronged legal attack against same-sex marriages. First, the group says state officials ordering county clerks to issue the licenses have no legal authority to do so. They also say Proposition 8 actually remains in force because the U.S. Supreme Court tossed out the case on a legal technicality rather than ruling directly on the constitutionality of the marriage ban.

North Carolina Governor McCrory won't veto House abortion bill 12 Jul 2013 North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory (R) told reporters while on a trip to New Bern Friday that he will not veto an abortion bill approved by the North Carolina House of Representatives Thursday. Earlier in the week, McCrory had threatened to veto a Senate version of the bill. He said Friday he would still veto that version if it reaches his desk. During his campaign, McCrory said he would not sign any legislation that would increase restrictions on access to abortions in North Carolina. But this week, he has signaled he would sign bills that seek to improve the health and safety of women who seek abortions increase restrictions on access to abortions in North Carolina.

Crowds outside courthouse await Zimmerman verdict 12 Jul 2013 As the George Zimmerman murder trial went before a jury Friday, a diverse crowd gathered outside the Seminole County courthouse awaiting a verdict. Some had come from as far as New Jersey to be there for the decision.

However, most of those outside the courthouse appeared to support the notion that Zimmerman is guilty.

Probe launched after contractor JDC dumped 340 tons of radioactive water into river for irrigation in Fukushima 12 Jul 2013 JDC Corp., a midsize general contractor, discharged 340 tons of radioactive water into the Iizaki River, which is tapped for irrigation in Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, during government-sponsored decontamination work it was involved in, company sources said Thursday.

But JDC sources said the dumping occurred after it received assurances from the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, which contracted it to carry out the decontamination work, that the state body had informed the local governments about the discharge in advance and no problem [?!?] was anticipated.

Edward Snowden accuses US of illegal, aggressive campaign 12 Jul 2013 The American whistleblower Edward Snowden has accused the US of waging a campaign of "historically disproportionate aggression" against him during an extraordinary meeting with human rights activists and Russian officials at the Moscow airport where he has been trapped since 23 June. In his first appearance since disclosing his identity in the Guardian last month, Snowden insisted he had no regrets and had made a "moral decision" to leak dozens of secret documents outlining US surveillance programmes. He also announced he would apply for political asylum from the Kremlin and appealed to those present for help in leaving the airport. The US has lobbied governments around the world to refuse entry to Snowden and has invalidated his US passport.

U.S. IRS documents show liberal groups vetted like Tea Party: Democrats 12 Jul 2013 A top Democrat probing the Internal Revenue Service scrutiny of conservative "Tea Party" groups released documents on Friday suggesting that "Occupy" and other liberal-leaning groups received similar scrutiny. Representative Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives' Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released documents from 2010 and 2012 used by IRS staff reviewing tax-exempt applications that suggest the key words "Progressive" and "Occupy" were subjected to added review, in addition to Tea Party applications.
