May 4, 2016 by legitgov

NSA to spy on its own staff off-the-clock: official | 03 May 2016 | The US National Security Agency aims to keep a tab on its own staff and their personal computers when out of working hours to ensure they are not participating in illegal activities, including downloading child pornography, or leaking classified information. Kemp Ensor, the NSA director of security, said in a report published on Monday that since national security workers go online when at home, they need to be monitored there as well "That is where we need to be, that's where we need to mine," said Ensor, referring to the time when NSA staff are not at their workplace.

Nuclear Waste Leaking at 'American Fukushima' in Northwest | 03 May 2016 | The Hanford Nuclear Reservation sits on the plains of eastern Washington, where the state meets Oregon and Idaho.

Workers on the site have been sickened too, suggesting that the rush to designate Hanford as a park may have been premature.

Sanders Wins Indiana Democratic Primary

May 4, 2016 by legitgov

Sanders Wins Indiana Democratic Primary | 03 May 2016 | Bernie Sanders is the winner of the Democratic primary in Indiana, NBC News projects. But the outcome is all but certain not to impact Hillary Clinton's march to the Democratic nomination. Because Indiana Democrats allocate delegates proportionally, the close race between the two candidates ensures that Sanders will capture only a small net delegate gain, leaving him still well behind Clinton in the race for support. The win for Sanders will, however, refresh the Vermont senator's argument that he must fight through the final Democratic primary contests in June and continue to spread his populist message.

May 4, 2016 by legitgov

Ted Cruz Ends His Campaign for President | 03 May 2016 | Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is ending his presidential campaign, according to his campaign manager, bowing to the reality that his crushing loss in Indiana all but assured the nomination of Donald J. Trump. Mr. Cruz, who staked his bid in the Republican race on a message of conservative purity and religious faith, had suffered through weeks of setbacks as the primary calendar reached the Northeast, where Mr. Trump significantly expanded his lead. But the senator had hoped to find more favorable terrain in Indiana, dashing across the state for over a week in a last-ditch effort to unify Republicans who viewed Mr. Trump’s success as an existential threat to the party.

Trump Wins Indiana Primary, Setting Path to GOP Nomination | 03 May 2016 | Donald Trump will win the Indiana Republican presidential primary, NBC News projects, crushing the hopes of GOP foes who waged a frantic campaign to halt his march to the party's nomination. The win sets Trump on a likely path to secure the 1,237 delegates necessary to secure his party's nomination before the convention in Cleveland this summer. Barring a catastrophic collapse in upcoming primary states, Trump is poised to clear the decisive threshold that rivals Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich pledged to block from his reach. The Indiana contest between the Democrats remains too early to call.

'D.C. Madam' attorney forbidden by Supreme Court to disclose records 'relevant to present election cycle'

May 3, 2016 by legitgov

'D.C. Madam' attorney forbidden by Supreme Court to disclose records 'relevant to present election cycle' --Supreme Court issues 'denial-without-explanation' to 'D.C. Madam' attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org | 03 May 2016 | On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court "denied a stay sought by Montgomery Blair Sibley, who had asked to be released from a lower court restraining order that barred him from sharing the records of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, known as the 'D.C. Madam'" (The Washington Post). Sibley, attorney for the late Palfrey, seeks to release the sealed records that he has maintained are "relevant to the present election cycle."

In his a blog entry posted Tuesday, entitled 'My Next Steps...,' Sibley discussed his next course of action. "Yesterday, the Supreme Court docketed the denial of my Application. They gave no reason for the denial of my request to review the refusal of the District Court Clerk to file my Motions for Modification of the Restraining Order which I believe prevents me from releasing information relevant to the present election cycle. So now what is my next step? Torn as I am that I should not be gagged from First Amendment political speech by a restraining order that I am being denied the opportunity to even asked to be dissolved...I will continue to press Obama Supreme Court nominee Chief Judge Garland of the D.C. Circuit Court to expedite the resolution of the Petition I placed before him on March 9, 2016."

May 3, 2016 by legitgov

Is this Ted Cruz's father with Lee Harvey Oswald? Presidential candidate furiously denies paper's claim that his dad is the mystery man in photo with JFK's assassin | 25 April 2016 | Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has denied all claims made by a newspaper that his father helped Lee Harvey Oswald distribute leaflets promoting Fidel Castro's communist government in 1963. The National Enquirer published photos of [one of] John F Kennedy's [alleged] killer[s], claiming to have concrete evidence the man beside him is Cuban-born Rafael Cruz. The images, released by the US government amid an investigation into JFK's 1963 assassination, show Oswald and a group walking around a street in New Orleans in 1963 handing out leaflets to passers-by. 'They [the photos] seem to match,' Carole Lieberman, a University of California, Los Angeles forensic psychiatrist, told the Enquirer. The images were the only source of evidence the newspaper cited for its May 2 cover story headlined 'Ted Cruz Father Now Linked to JFK Assassination!'

Ted Cruz's Campaign Rocked By 'Monumental' Scandal That May Sink Him for Good | 25 April 2016 | Ted Cruz's campaign for president has been rocked by a new controversy, which could end it once and for all! As Radar reported, The National ENQUIRER obtained a shocking photo of what appears to be Cruz's Cuban-born dad, Rafael, in New Orleans - alongside Lee Harvey Oswald - just three months before the [one of the alleged] assassin[s] murdered President John F. Kennedy. Political consultant George Arzt weighed the political consequences of the bombshell photograph and what they mean for the beleaguered Texas senator. "If the man in the photo is Ted Cruz's father standing next to Lee Harvey Oswald, it will be a monumental story with monumental damage to the Cruz campaign," explained Arzt.

'America is a better country without you': Ted Cruz heckled and jeered on eve of Indiana primary --Candidate is heckled by a child, quizzed about his birthplace and facing questions over whether he’s a serial killer ['Zodiac Ted']  - all while polling behind in Indiana | 02 May 2016 | Politicians who run for president are used to scorn, mockery and a healthy skepticism from the American people. But few have been heckled by a 12-year-old, questioned about their Canadian birth, or had their spouse field questions about their resemblance to a serial killer. All in one day. Ted Cruz suffered all this and more on Monday in Indiana, a state where he desperately needs to do well if he wants to preserve any hope of winning the Republican nomination for president...Cruz's allies did not have much a better day. His wife, Heidi, was asked by Yahoo News to comment on a string of jokes at this weekend's White House correspondents dinner, made at her husband's expense. On Saturday, the comedian Larry Wilmore invoked an internet meme that pretends the senator is the Zodiac Killer, the enigmatic and never-captured murderer who puzzled authorities with coded notes and claimed to have killed several people in the late 1960s and early 70s. [LOL!]

Polar Bear Parts Trade Won't Be Opposed By the U.S. Anymore | 02 May 2016 | The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has decided to stop pushing for an international ban on the trade in polar bear parts - an effort that has been strenuously opposed by Inuit and the [sociopaths in the] Canadian government. The U.S. agency has been trying for years to have skins and other parts put in the same category as elephant ivory. It sponsored votes at the last two meetings of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species that would have prevented Inuit hunters from selling hides or teeth even after eating the meat. Late last week, the service quietly dropped its campaign.

Resettling the First American 'Climate Refugees'

Resettling the First American 'Climate Refugees' | 02 May 2016 | (LA) In January, the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced grants totaling $1 billion in 13 states to help communities adapt to climate change, by building stronger levees, dams and drainage systems. One of those grants, $48 million for Isle de Jean Charles, is something new: the first allocation of federal tax dollars to move an entire community struggling with the impacts of climate change. The divisions the effort has exposed and the logistical and moral dilemmas it has presented point up in microcosm the massive problems the world could face in the coming decades as it confronts a new category of displaced people who have become known as climate refugees. "We're going to lose all our heritage, all our culture," lamented Chief Albert Naquin of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw, the tribe to which most Isle de Jean Charles residents belong. "It's all going to be history."
