August 10, 2015 by legitgov

U.S. consulate in Turkey targeted as wave of attacks kills 9 --At least 10 injured in police station bombing | 10 Aug 2015 | Two women shot at the U.S. consulate in Istanbul on Monday and at least nine people were killed in a wave of separate attacks on Turkish security forces, weeks after Ankara launched a crackdown on Islamic State [I-CIA-SIS], Kurdish and far-left militants. The NATO member has been in a heightened state of alert since starting its "synchronised war on [of] terror" last month, including air strikes against Islamic State fighters in Syria and Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants in northern Iraq. It has also rounded up hundreds of suspected militants at home.

Japan to restart first nuclear reactor during ongoing Fukushima disaster

August 10, 2015 by legitgov

Japan to restart first nuclear reactor since during ongoing Fukushima disaster | 10 Aug 2015 | Japan will on Tuesday begin restarting its nuclear power programme, officials said, after a two-year shutdown sparked by public fears following the Fukushima crisis. The restart comes more than four years after a quake-sparked tsunami triggered meltdowns at the Fukushima plant, prompting the shutdown of Japan's stable of reactors in the world's worst atomic crisis in a generation...But Japan's people are sceptical and the country remains deeply scarred by Fukushima, which forced tens of thousands of people from their homes - many of whom will likely never return. On Monday about 400 protesters rallied in front of the Sendai plant, which is on the southern tip of Japan's Kyushu island. [Notice that the US corporate-owned media 'forgot' to mention this protest and runs a *complete* blackout on any news regarding Fukushima?]

No to GMO: Scotland to outlaw growing of GM crops | 09 Aug 2015 | Scotland says it will ban genetically modified crops on its soil. According to officials, the move will protect the environment. They are also taking advantage of new EU laws, allowing member states to decide whether they want to grow the crops or not. Although the EU imports large quantities of GM crops from abroad, it is less sure about growing them on their own soil. Some environmental groups are worried about the impact they could have on the countryside, while there are also concerns over health issues for humans, despite producers of the crops insisting they are safe.

August 8, 2015 by legitgov

Aurora Movie Theater Shooter James Holmes to Be Sentenced to Life in Prison | 07 Aug 2015 | Aurora movie theater gunman [MKULTRA patsy] James Holmes will be sentenced to life in prison after a Colorado jury on Friday failed to unanimously agree to sentence him to death for killing 12 people more than three years ago. The nine-woman, three-man jury returned after less than seven hours of deliberations with the understanding that their lack of a decision would mean Holmes would not be sentenced to death but rather, life in prison without the possibility of parole. The same jury rejected an insanity defense in July and found Holmes guilty of 24 counts of murder -- two for each person he killed on July 20, 2012.

Israel behind assassinations of Iran nuclear scientists, Ya'alon hints | 07 Aug 2015 | Israel's defense minister hinted on Friday that the Jewish state's intelligence services were behind the rash of killings of Iranian nuclear scientists. In an interview with the German-language Der Spiegel, Moshe Ya'alon said that he bore no responsibility "for the life expectancy of Iranian scientists. Ultimately it is very clear, one way or another, Iran's military nuclear program must be stopped," Ya'alon said. Earlier this year, a senior Iranian security official said that the elite Revolutionary Guards Corps thwarted a Mossad assassination attempt against one of its nuclear scientists.

Republican presidential debate: 17 compete for attention, with Trump at the center | 06 Aug 2015 | The leading Republican presidential candidates used their first face-to-face encounter to accuse celebrity candidate Donald Trump -- and one another -- of diverging from conservative principles as they tried to reverse the surprising dominance of the billionaire and gain a foothold in the crowded race. Trump made news Thursday before even uttering a single word. When a moderator asked candidates whether they would pledge to support whoever ultimately won the party's nomination for president, as well as rule out an independent bid, Trump raised his hand to indicate he wouldn't.

Christie, Paul have epic clash at debate

Christie, Paul have epic clash at debate | 06 Aug 2015 | New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got into a verbal brawl over government surveillance with Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) on Thursday evening during the first Republican presidential debate of the 2016 cycle. The two began yelling over each other about the National Security Agency (NSA), with Paul fiercely criticizing Christie's call for the government to increase the powers of U.S. intelligence agencies. "I want to collect more records from terrorists but less records from innocent Americans," said Paul, the Senate's most prominent libertarian. That's a "completely ridiculously answer," responded Christie, a former U.S. attorney who pursued cases using powers under the Patriot Act. "How are you supposed to know?" "You support the Fourth Amendment!" Paul yelled in response. "Get a warrant! Get a judge to sign a warrant!" [*Exactly.*]

To press for Iran nuclear deal, Obama invokes Iraq war

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

To press for Iran nuclear deal, Obama invokes Iraq war | 05 Aug 2015 | President Obama lashed out at critics of the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday, saying many of those who backed the U.S. invasion of Iraq now want to reject the Iran accord and put the Middle East on the path toward another war. Obama also said that if Congress rejects the deal, it will undermine America's standing in global diplomacy, leaving the United States isolated and putting Israel in even greater peril. While calling the nuclear accord with Iran "the strongest nonproliferation agreement ever negotiated," Obama also seemed to turn the vote on the deal into a referendum on the U.S. invasion of Iraq a dozen years ago, a decision he portrayed as the product of a "mind-set characterized by a preference for military action over diplomacy."

Police: Suspect in Tennessee theater attack had been committed 4 times, had pellet gun, axe | 05 Aug 2015 | A man with "significant" psychological issues who was armed with a hatchet and pellet gun unleashed a volley of pepper spray at audience members inside a movie theater Wednesday before being fired at by a police officer and shot dead by a SWAT team as he tried to escape out a back door, police said. The attacker, identified as Vincente David Montano, 29, of Nashville, was carrying two backpacks, one of which hung from his chest, and he wore a surgical mask, possibly to protect himself from the pepper spray he unleashed in large amounts during the showing of "Mad Max: Fury Road," Metro Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron said. One of Montano's two backpacks was detonated and then found to contain a fake bomb, Aaron said. He said investigators were going through a second backpack that Montano left at the theater.

The Point of No Return: Global Warming Nightmares Are Already Here

The Point of No Return: Global Warming Nightmares Are Already Here --The worst predicted impacts of climate change global warming are starting to happen -- and much faster than climate scientists expected | 05 Aug 2015 | ...London reached 98 degrees Fahrenheit during the hottest July day ever recorded in the U.K.; The Guardian briefly had to pause its live blog of the heat wave because its computer servers overheated...On July 20th, James Hansen, the former NASA climatologist who brought climate change to the public's attention in the summer of 1988, issued a bombshell: He and a team of climate scientists had identified a newly important feedback mechanism off the coast of Antarctica that suggests mean sea levels could rise 10 times faster than previously predicted: 10 feet by 2065. The authors included this chilling warning: If emissions aren't cut, "We conclude that multi-meter sea-level rise would become practically unavoidable. Social disruption and economic consequences of such large sea-level rise could be devastating. It is not difficult to imagine that conflicts arising from forced migrations and economic collapse might make the planet ungovernable, threatening the fabric of civilization."

Obama climate plan derided by Republicans, hailed by green groups

Obama climate plan derided by Republicans, hailed by green groups | 03 Aug 2015 | US President Barack Obama's plan to cut carbon emissions from US power plants has been hailed as visionary by the UN, EU and environmental groups. Republicans have vowed to do whatever it takes to halt the measures. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon lauded Obama's Clean Power Plan, calling it an example of "visionary leadership necessary to reduce emissions and to tackle climate change." Obama's plan, unveiled on Monday, marked the first time power stations in the US have been targeted by mandatory regulations on carbon dioxide emissions. The measures force power plant owners to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 32 percent by 2030, compared to 2005 levels.

US fossil fuel lobby outspent green groups 22 times to blunt Obama climate plan

US fossil fuel lobby outspent green groups 22 times to blunt Obama climate plan | 06 Aug 2015 | There could be half a billion reasons for the concessions US President Barack Obama's 'clean-power plan' made to a defiant energy industry. Electric utilities, oil companies and their allies spent $US502 million ($683 million) on lobbying in the year since the Environmental Protection Agency proposed new regulations on carbon emissions from power plants, according to disclosures reviewed by Bloomberg. That's 22 times more than renewable energy companies and environmentalists spent...The biggest spenders against the plan were the US Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and Caterpillar.

Appellate Panel Says Texas ID Law Broke U.S. Voting Rights Act

August 6, 2015 by legitgov

Appellate Panel Says Texas ID Law Broke U.S. Voting Rights Act | 05 Aug 2015 | A federal appeals panel ruled Wednesday that a strict voter identification law in Texas discriminated against black and Hispanic voters and violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965 -- a decision that election experts called an important step toward defining the future reach of the landmark law. The state of federal voting protections has been uncertain since 2013, when the Supreme Court blocked the act's most potent enforcement tool, a requirement that numerous states, including Texas, with histories of discrimination receive federal clearance before changing election rules. The Texas ID case -- along with another in Texas challenging its redistricting plans and a case in North Carolina over broader changes in election rules -- has been closely watched in legal circles to see how courts will interpret the remaining provisions of the landmark federal law.
