Israel to extend its laws into West Bank

November 10, 2014 by legitgov

Israel to extend its laws into West Bank 9 Oct 2014 A bill that would extend all Israel's new laws onto the Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank has been approved by the Israeli ministerial committee...According to the new bill approved by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday, the Israeli laws would be applied through a military decree of Israel Defense Forces Central Command thus implying Israeli sovereignty on those territories in the West Bank. Within 45 days of any law's passage in parliament, the commander would issue an identically-phrased military order, effectively ensuring that the ratified legislation also applies to Jewish settlers.

Travelling in groups of three and four, the crack troops boarded commercial flights dressed in civilian clothes.

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

Remembrance Sunday: ring of steel around Queen to foil Cenotaph 'terrorist plot' 9 Nov 2014 Security around the Queen and senior politicians attending today's Remembrance Sunday events will be at its tightest for more than a decade after police and the intelligence services claimed to have foiled a plot by 'Islamists' to mount a terrorist attack. Armed police, undercover officers and soldiers will form what security experts described as a "multilayered" cordon around the Royal family, the Prime Minister and leaders of the main political parties as they prepare to lay wreaths at the Cenotaph memorial in Whitehall, following the traditional two-minute silence at 11am. Security will also be stepped up at other war memorials around the country, where services are also taking place. Security will be at its highest level since 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks [false flag].

Perry nuclear power plant shuts down after voltage problem

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

Perry nuclear power plant shuts down after voltage problem 7 Nov 2014 (OH) The Perry nuclear power plant unexpectedly shut itself down this morning. The shutdown, or "scram" occurred at 8:47 a.m., said [plant owner FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co.] spokeswoman Jennifer Young, as the control rods automatically inserted into the nuclear core. An engineering team's preliminary investigation released early this afternoon determined that a voltage problem in one of the electrical panels supplying power to the the pumps that keep the reactor supplied with fresh, purified water and the fuel rods submerged led to the automatic shutdown. Another problem in that same power supply circuitry caused the reactor to shut itself down Oct. 20.

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

French nuclear power plant drone flights continue, model plane fans freed --At least 17 flights by drones over nuclear power stations have been reported the beginning of October without police finding out who is responsible for them. 7 Nov 2014 The mysterious drone flights over French nuclear power stations continued on Thursday night but the authorities were no closer finding who is responsible after the release of two model plane enthusiasts arrested on Wednesday.

Some new U.S. troops in Iraq will be sent to Anbar, where Islamic State is in control

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

Some new U.S. troops in Iraq will be sent to Anbar, where Islamic State is in control 7 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama’s authorization of an additional 1,500 troops to Iraq to fight against the Islamic State more than doubles the U.S. troop presence there and will place some of those new forces in Iraq's most restive provinces. The decision to bolster and expand the U.S. effort to confront the Islamic State's hold on much of Iraq is likely to fuel concern that the United States was mission creeping back into a ground war just three years after U.S. troops withdrew all its forces from Iraq. When the U.S. re-engagement in Iraq began in July it consisted of a few hundred troops. Since then, the United States has not only added troops but begin a campaign of daily air strikes on Islamic State targets throughout Iraq.

US government sees off legal challenge over Guantanamo force-feeding

November 9, 2014 by legitgov

US government sees off legal challenge over Guantánamo force-feeding 8 Nov 2014 The Obama administration has prevailed in the first court challenge to its controversial force-feedings of detainees prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, even as the judge ruling in the government's favor criticized its lack of "common sense and compassion". Gladys Kessler, a federal judge in Washington DC, denied Abu Wa'el Dhiab's request to significantly change the manner in which the US military transfers, restrains and forcibly feeds detainees on hunger strike to protest their confinement. Kessler's ruling, siding with the government in nearly every particular, is the denouement of a courtroom drama that in May saw a civilian judge ordering the military to briefly halt Dhiab's forced feeding. In October, the injunction sought by the Syrian detainee prompted an extraordinary three days of courtroom disclosures about the feedings, which the government had sought to keep secret.

November 8, 2014 by legitgov

Chris Christie's N.J. friends got contracts from Republican group he chaired, records show 8 Nov 2014 The Republican Governors Association was good to its chairman Gov. Chris Christie by providing him the perfect opportunity to tour the country and build relationships while mulling a 2016 presidential campaign. And Christie's RGA was also good to his friends. At least two people close to New Jersey's governor benefited financially from Christie's chairmanship, records show. Longtime political strategist Mike DuHaime, a partner at the public strategy firm Mercury Public Affairs, and Cam Henderson, a former chief of staff to First Lady Mary Pat Christie, both received lucrative consulting contracts from the RGA.

Ex-USSR leader Gorbachev: World on brink of new Cold War 8 Nov 2014 The world is on the brink of a new Cold War, and trust should be restored by dialogue with Russia, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has said. At an event to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on Sunday, Mr Gorbachev said the West had "succumbed to triumphalism". He expressed alarm about recent [US-generated] Middle Eastern and European conflicts. Tensions have been raised between the West and Russia over Ukraine, which was part of the Soviet Union.

Ebola scare in the armed forces: Air force pilot back from Liberia with 'flu-like' symptoms is tested but cleared of having the deadly virus --Doctors at the Medical University of South Carolina say he has 'no risk' but will continue to monitor him 7 Nov 2014 A pilot who flew on a mission to West Africa and began experiencing 'flu-like symptoms' when he returned home was tested for Ebola but has been declared free of the deadly virus. The pilot from the 437th Airlift Wing based in Charleston, South Carolina, flew to Liberia on a three-hour mission on October 23. He began experiencing 'flu-like symptoms' when he arrived back in the U.S but was considered low risk because he never left the plane.

First Japanese nuclear power plant since Fukushima to resume operations --Local governor gives final approval to restart two reactors at Sendai despite resident' concerns 7 Nov 2014 A local governor in Japan has given final approval to restart a nuclear power plant in southern Japan, the first to resume operations in the country under new safety rules imposed after the 2011 Fukushima Dai-ichi meltdowns caused by an earthquake and tsunami. Kagoshima governor Yuichiro Ito said restarting two reactors at the Sendai power station would go ahead despite the concerns of residents.

November 7, 2014 by legitgov

Obama Approves Doubling U.S. Military Force in Iraq 7 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama has approved doubling the U.S. military force in Iraq and allowing troops to venture beyond headquarters already established in Baghdad and Erbil, in an escalation of the U.S. effort to defeat Islamic State extremists. Obama also is asking Congress to approve $5.6 billion in added Pentagon and State Department spending to 'fight the Sunni militants who have seized a swath of Iraq and Syria.' The president's approval to send as many as 1,500 personnel is in addition to 1,600 he previously authorized, 1,400 of whom are in Iraq today protecting U.S. facilities and assisting the Iraqi military.

Obama authorizes 1,500 more troops for Iraq, asks Congress for $5.6 billion toward war

November 7, 2014 by legitgov

Obama authorizes 1,500 more troops for Iraq, asks Congress for $5.6 billion toward war [I wonder if the $5.6bn will be used toward the Pentagon's food and weapons drops for I-CIA-SIS fighters?] 7 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama is authorizing the U.S. military to deploy up to 1,500 more troops to Iraq as part of the mission to 'combat' the Islamic State group. The White House says the troops won't serve in a combat role [!?!], but will train, advise and assist Iraqi military and Kurdish forces fighting IS. The announcement is part of a $5.6 billion funding request to Congress and came just after Obama met with congressional leaders Friday.

U.S. Supreme Court Agrees to Hear New Challenge to Obamacare

November 7, 2014 by legitgov

US supreme court agrees to hear new challenge to Obama's healthcare law 7 Nov 2014 The The US supreme court agreed on Friday to hear a new challenge to President Barack Obama's health care law. The justices said they will decide whether the law authorizes subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income Americans afford their health insurance premiums. A federal appeals court upheld Internal Revenue Service regulations that allow health-insurance tax credits under the Affordable Care Act for consumers in all 50 states. Opponents argue that most of the subsidies are illegal. [Corporatist fraud Obusha knew the whole bill would eventually collapse under the weight of the GOP/Supreme Court, to help the Insurance Cartel. When Obama was first elected, he had huge Democratic majorities, and could have passed single-payer health care or 'Medicare for all.' Notice that he selected the Wall Street solution.

More Than 600 Reported Chemical Exposure in Iraq, Pentagon Acknowledges

November 7, 2014 by legitgov

More Than 600 Reported Chemical Exposure in Iraq, Pentagon Acknowledges 6 Nov 2014 More than 600 American service members since 2003 have reported to military medical staff members that they believe they were exposed to chemical warfare agents in Iraq, but the Pentagon failed to recognize the scope of the reported cases or offer adequate tracking and treatment to those who may have been injured, defense officials say. The Pentagon's disclosure abruptly changed the scale and potential costs of the United States' encounters with abandoned chemical weapons during the occupation of Iraq, episodes the military had for more than a decade kept from view. This previously untold chapter of the occupation became public after an investigation by The New York Times revealed last month that although troops did not find an active weapons of mass destruction program, they did encounter degraded chemical weapons from the 1980s [provided to Saddam Hussein by the CIA] that had been hidden in caches or used in makeshift bombs.

IDPH has ordered them to take their temperature twice a day and report their health status to public health.

CNN Commentator, Fox News Media Consultant Provided Training to Most Major GOP Candidates - Report 6 Nov 2014 According to a Politico report, CNN commentator S.E. Cupp and Fox News media consultant Jon Kraushar [biased sacks of corporate sh*t] both gave media training to most major Republican Senate candidates leading up to Tuesday's midterm elections. The "bootcamp" was arranged by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and intended to keep GOP candidates from making campaign-crippling media gaffes. Cupp conducted mock interviews with candidates, simulating the kind of interrogation they might receive from the media in weeks prior to the elections. Kraushar, who has worked for Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and Dick Cheney, handles most of the on-camera training at Fox News. He was also present to ensure that candidates were primed.

November 7, 2014 by legitgov

6th Circuit upholds gay marriage bans, reversing trend 6 Nov 2014 A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld gay marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, reversing the trend in federal courts to strike down such bans and piling pressure on the Supreme Court to take up the matter. The ruling by the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals is the first ruling by a federal appeals court upholding bans on same-sex marriage. When the Supreme Court in October refused to intervene in the issue, all other appellate courts that had weighed in had struck down state bans on gay marriage.

Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove spoke to reporters at the Pentagon on Monday after a spate of tense confrontations involving Russian military aircraft flying in unusually large formations in the airspace of America's European allies. [Speaking of 'aggression:'] In October, the U.S. Army deployed 600 U.S. soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, Texas, on a 90-day mission to Eastern Europe. The soldiers are training with M-1 Abrams tanks and Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles in Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, which Breedlove described as "a first for many of these countries."

U.S. Muslim leaders say FBI pressuring people to become informants 3 Nov 2014 Muslim leaders nationwide say the FBI is pressuring some Islamic community members and religious leaders to spy on fellow Muslims as part of a government effort to combat extremist recruiting in the U.S. The campaign has intensified in recent weeks, with mosques in California, Texas, Minnesota, Ohio, Florida and other states reporting unannounced visits by FBI agents, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization. In a nationwide alert, the group urged mosque and community leaders to seek the advice of an attorney if they are approached by the FBI for questioning. They worried that the civil rights of numerous imams were being violated as the religious leaders were asked to meet with FBI agents, who then pressed them to inform on members of their congregations.

Fukushima disaster site 'like a science fiction film'

Fukushima disaster site 'like a science fiction film' --Science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar has gained extensive access to Japan's battered Fukushima power plant. He speaks to DW about exploring radiation-contaminated zones, and how the cleanup has progressed so far. 5 Nov 2014 ...You see empty supermarkets, beer machines with the beer inside still. You see a fuel station and you see grass coming out next to the fuel pumps, so this is something really spooky...You have closed areas called red zones, where presumably in the next decades nobody will be able to live...And you have lots of decontamination troops going in and ripping off the upper five centimeters of the soil and packing it in black plastic bags. This is like a science fiction film - you drive through valleys that are filled with these black plastic bags.

Obama Open to Striking Deals With GOP Congress, Such as TPP

November 6, 2014 by legitgov

Obama Open to Striking Deals With GOP Congress, Such as TPP 5 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama on Wednesday said he hoped to work constructively with newly ascendant Republicans in Congress, highlighting items for immediate action as well as longer-term areas where he hoped to strike deals with lawmakers. "Obviously, Republicans had a good night, and they deserve credit for running good campaigns," Mr. Obama said in his first public comments since Tuesday's election Koch purchases. In a conciliatory gesture, Mr. Obama on Wednesday highlighted areas where he hoped to work with Republicans, such as expanding trade [aka the *disastrous* TPP, as CLG predicted] and overhauling the corporate tax code. [No one is 'secretly celebrating' GOP control of Congress more than Barack Obama. If Obama actually wanted progressive legislation to pass, he would have hammered Harry Reid to change filibuster rules years ago. US media is salivating over the prospect of the passage of the worst 'treaty' in US history, Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) -- negotiated in complete secrecy by and for corporations -- which turns over governance of the United States to corporations, whose authority cannot be challenged. With the GOP running Congress, Obama can also get the Keystone XL Pipeline built for (his actual buds) the Koch brothers, renew the PATRIOT Act in 2015 (even though he campaigned for its demise in his 2008 campaign, another lie) and start more wars for Exxon Mobil and Monsanto. Start reading. --LRP]

Obama to Seek Congressional Backing for Military Campaign Against ISIS

November 6, 2014 by legitgov

Obama to Seek Congressional Backing for Military Campaign Against ISIS 5 Nov 2014 President Obama said on Wednesday that he would seek specific authorization from Congress for the military campaign against the Islamic State, opening the door to a lengthy, potentially contentious debate over the nature and extent of American engagement imperialism in Iraq and Syria. Mr. Obama's announcement, at his post-election news conference, was not wholly unexpected. But it represented a significant shift from his earlier position that while he would welcome congressional backing, he had legal authority to take military action under existing statutes. Administration officials said Mr. Obama still believed he had that authority, but with the elections over, he concluded that the time was right to petition Congress for more explicit authority.

Former Russian secret service chief accuses the West of a 'cover-up' over MH17 --Retired secret service chief said Ukrainian forces shot down MH17 5 Nov 2014 Western secret services were today accused of a cover-up over the shooting down of flight MH17 by a retired chief in Vladimir Putin's military intelligence agency. Retired Lt. Gen. Nikolai Pushkarev - formerly a senior official Russia's secret service, GRU - implied that the aircraft was shot out of the sky by Ukrainian forces. [It was.] 'Western intelligence and the Americans are very well aware of all the details - who shot flight MH17 down, why and what for,' he alleged. They 'manipulate this information and this incident for their own benefit. This provocation was organised to lay blame on Russia and force it into sending troops to Ukraine, officially. But the Russian government did not succumb to this provocation'.
