Flint water crisis: emails reveal governor Snyder informed of problems a year ago | 21 Jan 2016 | Michigan governor Rick Snyder (R-Terrorist} was informed of water quality issues in the city of Flint's supply as early as February 2015, according to emails released to the public on Wednesday, but his administration struck a dismissive tone, saying the problems would eventually "fade in the rearview". A background memo sent to the governor on 1 February dismissed the pleas of Flint's then-mayor Dayne Walling for state assistance, saying that the mayor had "seized on public panic...to ask the state for loan forgiveness and more money for infrastructure improvement". Flint's water supply was contaminated by lead, poisoning thousands of residents, after the source of the city's drinking water was switched from Detroit to the Flint river in April 2014.

Pentagon to increase number of US troops in Iraq | 21 Jan 2016 | The US plans to increase the number of troops in Iraq as it seeks to "accelerate" its campaign to "crush" Islamic State in the region, the Pentagon chief said. Ash Carter met with his French partner seeking ways to bring Arab states "in the game," too. Aside from his bilateral meeting with his counterpart and "good friend," French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, the US Defense Secretary Carter sat down for the first with seven major members of the anti-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) [but still I-CIA-SIS] coalition. The "face-to-face meeting" included Britain, Germany, Italy, Australia and the Netherlands, all trying to figure out in what ways they could boost their fight against Islamic militants.

Shocking hidden camera footage shows circus trainer brutally beating elephants with a metal bar and hook after keeping them chained for up to 11 hours a day --Footage of the abuse torture was recorded during a Great British Circus tour --He has now been removed from the billing at Circus Bouglione in France [That's not enough. This psychotic sack of garbage needs to be removed from the face of the earth.] | 20 Jan 2016 | Shocking hidden camera footage has shown a trainer brutally beating elephants with a metal bar and hook as the distressed animals cry out in pain. The incidents at the now-defunct Great British Circus were recorded during its tour throughout the UK in 2009. It shows the animals being repeatedly struck in the face with what appears to be a metal bar while they are kept in their tent. Other footage appears to show the animals being kept in chains during the night, though it is unclear who is responsible for the abuse torture. [This torture requires a *2nd Amendment solution.* Some hero, *please* address this dirt-bag!]

Israeli defense minister: If I had to choose between Iran and ISIS, I'd choose ISIS [*Of course.*] | 19 Jan 2016 | Speaking at the Institute for National Security Studies' (INSS) conference in Tel Aviv on Jan. 19, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon made a bold statement: If he had to choose between Iran and the Islamic State, he told the audience, he'd "choose ISIS." Ya'alon reasoned that Iran had greater capabilities than the Islamic State and remained the biggest threat for Israel. He argued that if Syria were to fall to one of the two powers, he would prefer it were the Islamic State rather than Iran or Iran-backed groups.

Alleged terrorism plot involving Virginia men created by U.S. government - attorney --'They create cases, and then they prevent them from happening.' [*Exactly.*] | 19 Jan 2016 | An attorney for a Virginia man accused of helping an acquaintance try to join the Islamic State said his client was a victim of anti-Muslim hysteria and efforts by the government to manufacture -- then stop -- terror threats. After a brief court hearing Tuesday, Ashraf Nubani, the attorney for 25-year-old Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, said that his client is innocent and that the charges against him were based largely on the word of three government informants who were "looking for people they thought they could get in trouble." He asserted that in Elhassan's case and in others, federal agents have engineered a threat, then publicized their efforts to convince the American people that they are being protected.

U.S. top court takes up case on Obama immigration plan | 19 Jan 2016 | The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear President Barack Obama's bid to resurrect his plan to shield more than 4 million illegal immigrants from deportation [and continue to provide an endless steam of cheap labor for Obama's corporate handlers, driving down wages across the board], a unilateral executive action he took in 2014 to bypass the Republican-led Congress. Obama's action was blocked by lower courts after Texas and 25 other Republican-governed states sued to stop it, contending he exceeded his presidential powers under the U.S. Constitution. The case will be argued before the high court in the coming months, with a ruling due by the end of June.

Under pressure from Pentagon, Congress removed ban on funding neo-Nazis from its year-end spending bill

January 19, 2016 by legitgov

Under pressure from Pentagon, Congress removed ban on funding neo-Nazis from its year-end spending bill | 14 Jan 2016 | In mid-December 2015, Congress passed a 2,000-plus-page omnibus spending bill for fiscal year 2016. Both parties were quick to declare victory after the passage of the $1.8 trillion package. The office of House Speaker Paul J. Ryan touted the bill's "64 billion for overseas contingency operations" for, among other things, assisting "European countries facing Russian [sic] aggression." It would be safe to assume that one of the European countries which would stand to benefit from the omnibus measure...would be [the terrorists running] Ukraine, which has already, according to the White House, received $2 billion in loan guarantees and nearly $760 million in "security, programmatic, and technical assistance" since February 2014. Yet some have expressed concern that some of this aid has made its way into the hands of neo-Nazi groups, such as the Azov Battalion.

US sanctions illegal as American arms used against Palestinians, Yemenis - Iranian FM | 18 Jan 2016 | Iran has accused the US of hypocrisy and said that new sanctions imposed by the US are illegal, as arms sold by Washington are being used against people in Palestine and Yemen, the Iranian Foreign Ministry has stated.

"The US sanctions against Iran's ballistic missile program...have no legal or moral legitimacy," Reuters cited Ansari as saying in a televised news conference.

Chris Christie: Keep the White House out of the cafeteria

LOLOL: Chris Christie: Keep the White House out of the cafeteria [Yeah, so he can eat *everything!*] | 17 Jan 2016 | If Chris Christie becomes the next president schools probably won't be required or even encouraged to serve lunches filled with fruits and vegetables. That's because Christie said he doesn't believe the president should have a say in school lunches. Those, he told voters in Council Bluffs, Iowa should be up to the parents. "Doesn't the president of the United States have anything better to do than to worry about what you are having for lunch? Let me tell you this, I don't care," Christie said Monday when 11-year-old Jacob Royal, who traveled from Nebraska to hear Christie speak, asked the New Jersey governor what he would do to make the lunches better.
