Trump on the Ticket Could Mean Connecticut Is in Play

Trump on the Ticket Could Mean Connecticut Is in Play | 17 July 2016 | Republicans have not won the presidential race in this Democrat-dominated state since the days of Greenwich native George H.W. Bush in 1988, but as GOP delegates gather in Cleveland this week to nominate Donald Trump, old lessons may not apply. In a state where the entire infrastructure is Democratic--from the governor to the entire Congressional delegation to the Constitutional officers like state attorney general--Trump thinks he is the candidate to break the long Republican drought with a victory over Hillary Clinton..."When you look at certain key areas in Connecticut that have key demographic support for Trump, such as the Naugatuck Valley, with a lot of industrial workers who are independents who might be persuaded to go Trump's way, coupled with the dissatisfaction that Gov. Malloy is facing right now, there are the makings of a close race in Connecticut,'' said Scott McLean, a political science professor at Quinnipiac University in Hamden.

Alleged coup leader was once military attaché to Israel | 16 July 2016 | Turkish media on Saturday named former Turkish Air Force chief Akın Ozturk as one of the main instigators of the country's attempted coup on Friday.

Turkey's president has also blamed a US-based cleric for being behind the failed takeover attempt. Washington has said it would entertain an extradition request for Fethullah Gulen.

Donald Trump Officially Introduces Mike Pence as Running Mate on GOP Ticket | 16 July 2016 | Donald Trump said his selection of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his Republican running mate showed a commitment to party unity and that they will form the "law and order" choice for the presidency in the fall. Mr. Trump had intended officially to announce his selection of Mr. Pence on Friday, but delayed the event after Thursday's terrorist killing of 84 people in Nice, France. Uncertainty had hung over his selection for days, as news reports aired divides within Mr. Trump's circle over his preference for the Indiana governor.

Newtown Rejects $11 Million Lawsuit Settlement Offer From Sandy Hook Victims' Families

July 17, 2016 by legitgov

Newtown Rejects $11 Million Lawsuit Settlement Offer From Sandy Hook Victims' Families | 15 July 2016 | The town of Newtown has rejected an offer by two families of children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre to settle a pending civil lawsuit for $11 million. Attorneys for the estates of Noah Pozner and Jesse Lewis had filed a motion last month offering to settle the lawsuit against the Newtown school district for $5.5 million each. The town had 30 days to accept the offer and attorney Donald Papcsy, who is representing the families, said the deadline passed this week. Papcsy said he is now starting to go through the more than 8,000 pages of documents that have been turned over as part of the discovery process. Much of that is the redacted state police report on the shooting made public two years ago, but the town also has turned over the school district's policies prior to the shooting on security and active shooter protocols.

U.S. ordered to lower Navy sonar levels to protect whales | 16 July 2016 | U.S. officials have wrongly allowed the Navy to use sonar at levels that could harm whales and other marine mammals in the world's oceans, a federal appeals court in San Francisco has ruled. The decision Friday by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals would scale back the Navy's use of low-frequency sonar in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans and the Mediterranean Sea under authority that was granted in 2012. Sonar, used to detect submarines, can injure whales, seals and walruses and disrupt their feeding and mating.

July 16, 2016 by legitgov

After Coup Attempt, Turkish President Demands US Extradite Muslim Cleric Fethullah Gulen | 16 July 2016 | Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the United States today to extradite to Turkey the U.S.-based 'moderate Islamic cleric' he claims is behind Friday night's military coup attempt. Erdogan made the demand during a televised speech addressing supporters outside his residence in Istanbul. He said Turkey had always cooperated with any extradition request for "terrorists" by the United States, emphasizing Turkey's joint role with the U.S. government in fighting terrorism. Fethullah Gulen, who lives in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, has rejected the notion that he has any involvement in the attempt to seize power from Erdogan...

July 16, 2016 by legitgov

Turkish planes docked at US Incirlik Air Base took part in Friday night's coup attempt, officials say --U.S. troops at Incirlik on highest force protection level | 16 July 2016 | U.S. troops at Turkey's Incirlik air base were at the highest force protection level, known as "condition Delta," after power was cut off at the base and the Turkish government closed the airspace around the site in the hours following a foiled military coup attempt, a U.S. official told ABC News today. Turkish officials told ABC News they believe Turkish planes docked at Incirlik Air Base took part in Friday night's coup attempt, which is why the site is locked down. Turkey allows the United States to use the air base for operations associated with its air campaign against [except when it does food and weapons drops for] ISIS in Iraq and Syria. There are 2,200 U.S. personnel in Turkey, including 1,500 stationed at Incirlik.

Long-classified '28 pages' show 9/11 hijackers were aided by men with 'extensive links' to Saudi government

Long-classified '28 pages' show 9/11 hijackers were aided by men with 'extensive links' to Saudi government | 15 July 2016 | At least two 9/11 hijackers were aided by men with "extensive ties" to the Saudi Arabian government, according to newly-declassified documents. The possible links between the Saudi government and the perpetrators of America's worst-ever terrorist attack were catalogued in a 2002 Congressional report, but were deemed by then-president [sic] George W Bush [9/11 unindicted co-conspirator] to be too damaging to be made public. Since then families of 9/11 victims and members of Congress have lobbied for the portion of the report- known as the "28 Pages" - to be declassified. The report was released on Friday, and names five Saudi individuals with links to the government that allegedly helped the hijackers - of which 15 of 19 were Saudi nationals - get apartments, open bank accounts, attend local mosques and get flight lessons.

A reclusive religious scholar in Pennsylvania may be behind the attempted coup in Turkey

July 16, 2016 by legitgov

A reclusive religious scholar in Pennsylvania may be behind the attempted coup in Turkey | 15 July 2016 | As tanks take up positions in the streets and jets fly overhead in a dramatic coup attempt in Turkey, suspicion has fallen on Fethullah Gulen, a US-based Turkish religious scholar and political enemy of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the strongman Turkish president. Until now, Erdogan had appeared to have crushed the 75-year-old Gulen, who has deep roots in the Turkish political, military, judicial, and media establishments, as well as in Muslim countries around the world. But if, as Erdogan himself has alleged, Gulen or his followers [the Alliance for Shared Values] are involved in the putsch, then it demonstrates that he remains a force to contend with, though he has lived for years in seclusion in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania.

Please sign petition: Free Tundra the Polar Bear from Bronx Zoo | 15 July 2016 | On July 3, 2016, Arturo the polar bear died after more than twenty lonely years of misery and confinement in an Argentinian zoo. While the world was outraged at the conditions Arturo was kept in and many fought to move him to a more suitable environment, little was able to be done for him because of the zoo's blatant disregard for his welfare. In New York City's Bronx Zoo, Tundra the polar bear is also languishing alone in confinement...Polar bears live in the Arctic, where temperatures are a frigid -29 F and can reach as low as -92 F. Despite the unbelievably cold temperatures, polar bears can often overheat and will roll in the snow to cool off, as well as to keep their fur clean. There is nothing "normal" or "natural" about confining a polar bear to a concrete cell in New York.

President Erdogan was in Turkey's Mediterranean resort town of Marmaris at the time the events began to unfold in Ankara and Istanbul, he said, claiming that the hotel he had stayed in there was also bombed, but he had left it by then.

July 16, 2016 by walden9

CONFIRMED: Full-Blown Military Coup in Turkey; UPDATE: Coup Over? | 15 JULY 2016 | While there are reports of sporadic confrontations between pro-coup forces and protestors, it appears as if the coup has failed. Explosions have rocked the parliament building, injuring 12 people. Turkish state television–TRT–is back on the air. CNN Turk said that the anchor that read the coup plotters statement did so at gunpoint. Government officials are back in their offices, though there are some reports that parliament members are still in hiding. CNN's Anderson Cooper and others were noting that not taking the Turkish president and prime minister into custody at the start of this action seems to be failing "coup 101." Still the situation is tenuous, but it looks as if the coup plotters are not going to be successful. Based on reports, President Erdogan is back in Istanbul after his requests for asylum were denied in Germany.
