March 14, 2012 by legitgov

Rick Santorum scores big in two Southern primaries 13 Mar 2012 Scoring major upsets in the Alabama and Mississippi primaries on Tuesday, Rick Santorum dealt a potentially crippling blow to Newt Gingrich and effectively emerged as Mitt Romney's lead challenger for the Republican presidential nomination. With most of the votes tallied, Gingrich was finishing a close second to Santorum in both states, followed by Mitt Romney.

He has won 10 contests in states spanning the nation.

Afghan tribal leaders: Afghan civilians' massacre pre-planned

March 14, 2012 by legitgov

Afghan tribal leaders: Afghan civilians' massacre pre-planned 13 Mar 2012 Afghan tribal leaders say the recent massacre of Afghan civilians by US troops has been pre-planned and not carried out by a lone soldier, Press TV reports. The tribal leaders of the southern province of Kandahar said on Monday that several US forces, not a single soldier, contributed to the brutal carnage of Afghan civilians and that the violent action had been planned previously. They said the carnage was in retaliation against a deadly bomb attack on the US troops in the Zangabad district in the town of Panjwaii in the province of Kandahar, which inflicted serious damage on the American military forces. Following the blast, the American forces summoned local Afghans and tribal leaders of the region and vowed a bloody revenge on their children and wives, Kandahar tribal leaders added.

Two on terrorist watch list stopped in Laurel in 2011

March 14, 2012 by legitgov

Two on terrorist watch list stopped in Laurel in 2011 --Instructions were given to allow the individuals to leave without being detained or arrested. --'Homeland Security doesn't want us to talk about that at all.' 15 Mar 2012 (MD) Two individuals on a federal terrorist watch list were stopped in a vehicle by Laurel police at some point in 2011, then allowed to leave based on directives from officials at the federal Department of Homeland Security, according to Laurel police and information recently released by the city. Laurel has been linked to al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] cells in the United States before, and the city made national headlines following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when it was reported that some of the 'hijackers' involved in the attacks had stayed in motels in the city and used computers at the Laurel library. But public acknowledgments of the actions taken by local and federal agencies to track or interact with individuals suspected of being involved in or tied to terrorist activities or cells are relatively rare, and such actions often go unreported.

Poll: Obama's approval rating sinks to new low 12 Mar 2012 President Obama's approval rating has hit the lowest level ever in CBS News polling, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times survey. The drop may be partially attributable to rising gas prices. Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, according to the poll, conducted from March 7 to 11. Another 47 percent disapprove of his performance, up from 41 percent last month. Mr. Obama's approval rating was 50 percent last month. [Too bad Obusha doesn't want to annoy his friends on Wall Street, and take action on oil speculators.]

Hague to be sued for aiding US drone attacks in Pakistan

March 13, 2012 by legitgov

Hague to be sued for aiding US drone attacks in Pakistan 12 Mar 2012 A rights group and a law firm are set to take legal action against British Foreign Secretary William Hague over his alleged the contribution of intelligence in assisting US assassination drone strikes in Pakistan. The London-based charity Reprieve and the law firm Leigh Day & Co. confirmed on Monday that they will issue formal proceedings at the High Court on behalf of Noor Khan, a Pakistani man whose father was killed by a US strike. The law firm says it has credible evidence that Hague oversaw a policy of passing British intelligence to American forces planning attacks in Pakistan. Lawyers claim that civilian staff at Britain's electronic listening agency (GCHQ) could be liable as "secondary parties to murder" as they provided "locational intelligence" to the CIA in directing its drone attacks.

Judge rules Wisconsin's voter ID law unconstitutional

March 13, 2012 by legitgov

Judge rules Wisconsin's voter ID law unconstitutional 12 Mar 2012 A Dane County judge struck down the state's new voter ID law on Monday - the second judge in a week to block the requirement that voters show photo identification at the polls. "A government that undermines the very foundation of its existence - the people's inherent, pre-constitutional right to vote - imperils its legitimacy as a government by the people, for the people, and especially of the people," Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess wrote. "It sows the seeds for its own demise as a democratic institution. This is precisely what 2011 Wisconsin Act 23 does with its photo ID mandates." Niess's eight-page ruling goes further than the one issued by another judge last week because it permanently invalidates the law for violating the state constitution.

'Doonesbury': Next week's abortion-law strips pulled by at least several papers 09 Mar 2012 Next week, "Doonesbury" will tackle the ultrasound-before-abortion debate that has roiled Texas and Virginia and the nation in recent weeks, as lawmakers fought over a procedure deemed physically invasive and medically intrusive by some critics, who dubbed it "state rape." Into this political tempest wades Garry Trudeau, the Pulitzer-winning creator of the oft-controversial "Doonesbury" that over four decades has helped alter the boundaries of what newspaper editors allow on their "funny pages."

US military unveils non-lethal heat ray weapon

March 12, 2012 by legitgov

US military unveils non-lethal heat ray weapon --Weapon was deployed briefly in Afghanistan in 2010 11 Mar 2012 A sensation of unbearable, sudden heat seems to come out of nowhere -- this wave, a strong electromagnetic beam, is the latest non-lethal weapon unveiled by the US military this week. "You're not gonna see it, you're not gonna hear it, you're not gonna smell it: you're gonna feel it," explained US Marine Colonel Tracy Taffola, director the Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate, Marine Corps Base Quantico, at a demonstration for members of the media. The effect is so repellant, the immediate instinct is to flee -- and quickly, as experienced by AFP at the presentation. Taffola added that the "Active Denial System" beam, while powerful and long-range, some 1000 meters (0.6 miles), is the military's "safest non-lethal capability" that has been developed over 15 years but never used in the field.

Participants called for an end to nuclear energy in Japan and compensation for victims from operator Tokyo Electric Power.

Fukushima rally to be held at San Onofre 11 Mar 2012 Dozens of Southern Californians will hold a rally to remember the meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan and to raise awareness about nuclear power in California. The gathering Sunday outside the gates of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in San Clemente will focus on what protesters say are dangers at the plant, which is located in southern Orange County. Southern California Edison took the San Onofre Unit 3 nuclear plant off-line last month as a precaution after detecting a leak in a tube that carries radioactive water in a steam generator. Subsequent investigation found unusual and premature wear on hundreds of similar tubes in Unit 2.

Romney used private email accounts as governor

Romney used private email accounts as governor 11 Mar 2012 Republican presidential candidate [sociopath] Mitt Romney and some of his top aides used private email accounts to conduct state business at times when Romney was governor of Massachusetts, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The communications were legal, even though Romney's own administration warned state agencies against the practice due to cyber security concerns. The state archives in Massachusetts which learned about Romney's emails from the AP now says the private emails should have invoked rules about preserving copies of state records.
