Tensions Mount as Native American Tribe Fights to Block Oil Pipeline | 07 Sept 2016 |  A multibillion-dollar pipeline being built through land claimed by Native Americans to be culturally sensitive has sparked outrage, protest and heartbreak among tribe members who say sacred sites are being "bulldozed."

Hillary Clinton Courts Henry Kissinger's Endorsement Even After Meeting His Victims

September 6, 2016 by legitgov

Hillary Clinton Courts Henry Kissinger's Endorsement Even After Meeting His Victims | 03 Sept 2016 | Hillary Clinton's campaign has been seeking the endorsement of former Secretary of State [Grade 'A' sociopath] Henry Kissinger, and their efforts may pay off, as there are reports that he is expected soon, alongside former Secretary of State George Schultz [under President Ronald Reagan], to issue a joint endorsement of Clinton. While those inside the national security community in Washington, D.C., may applaud the endorsement, Kissinger's legacy of war crimes -- from complicity in the 1973 coup in Chile to spearheading the saturation bombing of Indochina -- has made him far less popular among human rights observers. Clinton is well aware of that legacy. As secretary of state, she traveled to areas of the world that were devastated by policies Kissinger crafted and implemented.

Barack Obama on CNN: 'I Remain Confident' Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Deal Will Pass | 04 Sept 2016 | Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's electoral chances be damned, President Barack Obama is on a warpath to achieve congressional approval of his landmark Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact corporate takeover before he leaves office. Appearing on CNN-a network that is more and more openly in favor of electing Clinton-for an interview with [plagiarist] Fareed Zakaria before his trip to China, Obama defended the highly controversial TPP deal...Because the passage of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), Obama said, he is "confident" he will pass the TPP in the lame duck session of Congress after the election before the new president and new Congress takes office in January. The real question now is, if Hillary Clinton is actually opposed to the TPP, why has she not said anything about opposing Obama bringing it up in the lame duck session of Congress?

Centcom, the US Central Command, did not respond to Times requests over three days this week to explain how such a well-known hostage taker with family connections to extremists could have passed US vetting procedures.

University of Nebraska Lincoln introduces new 'non-negotiable respect' policy which bans insulting groups, individuals or ideologies --Chancellor of University of Nebraska Lincoln has started 'respect' policy | 02 Sept 2016 | The University of Nebraska Lincoln's new chancellor Ronnie Green has instituted a new, non-negotiable respect policy at the school. During a speech given at the new student convocation last month, Green made it clear that 'actions of hate and disrespect' would not be tolerated. However, the policy on what constitutes 'hate' and 'disrespect' has not been made clear. [OMG. Is Marxism an 'insulting' ideology? Are those who question the events of 9/11 'disrespectful?' If I believe that Sandy Hoax was a DHS drill-gone-live, am I exuding 'hate?' If it takes a second American Revolution to rid us of this insanity, count me in! --LRP. Marxism by definition does not respect bourgeois ideologies or politics, let alone for the most part, identity politics. Likewise, a principled Marxist stance would be outlawed on this campus of surveillance, coercion and control. Major essay on all of this and more, forthcoming. -- MDR.]

Marine, Navy officials in Afghanistan were aware of allegations of child rape by Afghan police chief, but he was allowed to keep his job anyway - lawsuit

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Marine, Navy officials in Afghanistan were aware of allegations of child rape by Afghan police chief, but he was allowed to keep his job anyway - lawsuit | 01 Sept 2016 | Last fall, the Navy Department had a controversial disciplinary case before it: Maj. Jason C. Brezler had been asked by Marine colleagues to submit all the information he had about an influential Afghan police chief suspected of abusing raping children. Brezler sent a classified document in response over an unclassified Yahoo email server, and he self-reported the mistake soon after. But the Marine Corps recommended that he be discharged for mishandling classified material. The Navy Department, which oversees the Marine Corps, had the ability to uphold or overturn the decision. However, rather than just looking at the merits of the case, Navy officials also assessed that holding new hearings on the case would renew attention on the scandal surrounding child sex abuse in Afghanistan, according to military documents newly disclosed in federal court.
