AT&T/Yahoo blocking the CLG Newsletter again 16 May 2013

May 16, 2013 by legitgov

AT&T/Yahoo blocking the CLG Newsletter again by Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 16 May 2013 AT&T, and all of its domains including Yahoo, is blocking the CLG Newsletter again. Here is the additional comment I posted on the 'trouble ticket' to CLG's webhoster:

Sadly, the issue at hand is censorship, which needs to be addressed at a level 'above' the email sender. Daily, I receive emails from CLG subscribers who tell me that no matter how many times they instruct the Google filter to mark the CLG Newsletters as 'not spam,' lo and behold, that's where the CLG Newsletter goes - the Google spam bin. And yet, no matter how many times I mark 'Rick's Digital Photo Editing' emails as spam, those emails arrive in my Google inbox, unmolested. The issue needs to be addressed by the webhoster, who has more 'clout' than the sender. Can MayFirst please make the email delivery issue/censorship by AT&T, Google, etc., a priority? Thank you, Lori Price

[Gee, here's a story for the mainstream media to cover, how corpora-terrorists will not allow this newsletter to pass, no matter what. Thanks, Obusha, for the free speech! --LRP]

NH city sues six parking meter 'Robin Hoods' who put money in expired meters 14 May 2013 The city has filed a lawsuit against six citizens, part of a group dubbed Robin Hood of Keene that patrols downtown armed with video cameras and pockets full of change to fill expired parking meters. Also known as Robin Hooders, the six are associated with the Free Keene group. "They say video recording or talking to them is harassing them, but I don't agree with that," "Robin Hooder" James Cleaveland said of parking enforcement officers. "So they want to establish a safety zone of fifty feet." Members of the group place cards under windshield wipers that read, "Your meter expired; however, we saved you from the king's tariffs, Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Please consider paying it forward," and includes an address where donations can be sent.

Russia's CIA spy bust 'was linked to Boston Bombing': US diplomat was trying to recruit Dagestan expert who travelled to terrorist's home town when he was arrested --Letter allegedly found on him offers agents $1million per year to defect [aka carry out more false flags] 15 May 2013 The arrest of a US diplomat accused of being a CIA spy was linked to the Boston bombing, sources revealed today. Russian security officials reported on Tuesday that they had briefly detained Ryan Fogle in Moscow for allegedly trying to recruit a Russian intelligence officer. Today sources revealed the man Mr Fogle was trying to 'recruit' was an FSB agent who specialised in 'Islamic extremism' in Russia and may even have travelled to the region where the bombing suspects came from. Fogle, a third secretary at the U.S. Embassy, was carrying special technical equipment, disguises, written instructions and a large sum of money. The Ministry hit out at 'provocative acts in the spirit of the Cold War' and has ordered the expulsion of Fogle, arrested wearing a blond wig under his baseball cap.

Secretive TPP Talks Re-Commence in Lima, Peru: They Can Shut Us Out, But They Can't Shut Us Up 15 May 2013 Today, trade negotiators from 11 countries meet again to secretively draft the terms of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP). The TPP is a sprawling multinational trade agreement that includes expansive and unfair copyright provisions. If signed, the TPP will entrench these digital enforcement measures as a global standard, leading to harsh regulations that would be disastrous for Internet users worldwide. As with all the previous TPP talks, the public is completely excluded from the process. As during the ACTA negotiations, Hollywood and other Big Content industries have a stronghold over international policymakers.

May 15, 2013 by legitgov

Obama says Treasury Secretary requested, received resignation of acting IRS Commissioner 15 May 2013 President Obama announced Wednesday that acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller has resigned in the wake of the agency scandal in which conservative groups were targeted.

Obama said Lew asked for the resignation and Miller agreed, after being on the job since November 2012. [The IRS commissioner in 2012, Douglas Shulman, was appointed by George W. Bush.]

White House pushing new federal media shield law 15 May 2013 In damage control mode after revelations that the Department of Justice seized records from Associated Press reporters, the White House is pushing a federal media shield law that died in the Senate four years ago. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) introduced the media-protecting legislation at the request of the White House, according to a White House official. The Free Flow of Information Act would protect journalists from being compelled to testify about their confidential sources, unless all other avenues are exhausted and exposure is in the public interest. [Republicans killed a federal media shield law in 2007, when unelected Dictator Bush was in charge.]

Oregon soldiers must share damage award in KBR suit with state, judge rules 13 May 2013 Twelve Oregon National Guard soldiers and veterans who won a multimillion-dollar negligence award against defense contractor KBR Inc. will not be able to keep it all for themselves, a federal judge in Portland has ruled.

And he said the awards should be apportioned according to Oregon law, which requires that 60 percent of punitive damage awards be set aside for the state's crime victims fund and another 10 percent for a state courts facilities fund.
