Former Penn State coach Paterno told of child sex abuse decades ago: court document

May 6, 2016 by legitgov

Former Penn State coach Paterno told of child sex abuse decades ago: court document | 05 May 2016 | Penn State's revered former head coach Joe Paterno was told of child sexual abuse by convicted molester Jerry Sandusky as far back as 1976, decades before previously thought, but did not report it to higher authorities, a court document showed. Paterno, the coach with the most wins in major college football history, died in 2012 [and, since silence equals complicity, roasting in hell] after being fired over revelations that Sandusky, his coaching assistant, sexually abused a young boy in the Penn State football showers in 2002. Paterno told university officials, but not police.

Maine Democrats to vote on eliminating superdelegates | 03 May 2016 | Officials from the Maine Democratic Party will vote on a rule change to eliminate superdelegates, the controversial institution that has a disproportionate role in choosing the party's presidential nominee without necessarily representing voters. State representative Diane Russell introduced a rule change that would require superdelegates in Maine to be assigned proportionally based on the state's caucus results, just like normal delegates are. The proposed change will be brought to a vote at this weekend's state Democratic Party convention in Portland.

May 5, 2016 by legitgov

White House suggests Trump's intelligence briefings may be limited [!?!] | 05 May 2016 | Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may not get the same level of briefing on intelligence that President Barack Obama receives, a White House spokesman said Thursday. "The decisions about how and whether and when and what to brief to the presidential nominees is a decision that will be made by our intelligence professionals," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday. Those decisions, Earnest said, will be made by James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Clapper told reporters last week that a plan for the candidate briefings is already in place. The candidates are due to start receiving intelligence briefings after they are formally nominated.

House Speaker Paul Ryan: 'Not Ready' to Support Trump as GOP Nominee | 05 May 2016 | House Speaker [TPP-pusher/Social Security slasher/corporatist dirt-bag] Paul Ryan said Thursday that he couldn't yet lend his support to Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee, saying the billionaire businessman had "work to do" to unify the party and to demonstrate his commitment to conservative principles subjugating the US to full corporate control through the Obama/Ryan TPP. Asked if he would support Mr. Trump, Mr. Ryan told CNN: "I'm just not ready to do that at this point. I'm not there right now. And I hope to though, and I want to. But I think what is required is that we unify this party. And I think the bulk of the burden on unifying this party will have to come from the presumptive nominee." [#DumpRyan.]

U.S. regulators ban e-cigarette, cigar sales to minors

May 5, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. regulators ban e-cigarette, cigar sales to minors | 05 May 2016 | U.S. regulators on Thursday took their first steps to crack down on e-cigarettes and cigars, increasingly popular among American youth, and banned sales to anyone under age 18 in hopes of preventing a new generation from becoming hooked on nicotine. The Food and Drug Administration's action brought regulation of e-cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco and hookah tobacco in line with existing rules for cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and roll-your-own tobacco. The new rules take effect in 90 days...Wall Street analysts expect the regulation to herald a new wave of consolidation led by big tobacco companies.

May 5, 2016 by legitgov

Teenage terrorism suspects could be detained for two weeks under proposed NSW laws | 04 May 2016 | (AU) Children as young as 14 suspected of terrorism offences in New South Wales could be detained and questioned for up to a fortnight under new laws introduced by the Baird government. The legislation extends the amount of time a terrorism suspect can be held for questioning from 24 hours - in practice, up to eight days including "dead time" - to two weeks. A suspect will not need to be brought before a judge until the fourth day of questioning under the legislation, which the state premier, Mike Baird, said on Wednesday was about doing "everything possible to protect our community from terrorist threats". Similar powers already existed in the form of preventative detention orders, which allowed state police [in the police state] to detain a suspect for up to 14 days, but they could not be questioned.

Epic wildfire threatens to engulf Canadian city as 88,000 flee | 05 May 2016 | A massive wildfire that has forced all 88,000 people to flee the western Canadian oil city of Fort McMurray and burned down 1,600 structures is now threatening its airport and communities well south of the town, authorities said on Wednesday. With a few neighborhoods already in ruins, worsening fire conditions Wednesday pushed walls of flames toward thousands of more homes in the northeastern Alberta town, in the heart of Canada's oil sands region. The winds also pushed flames toward the local airport, with webcam images showing black smoke engulfing the airport late on Wednesday evening.

Kasich suspends his GOP presidential campaign | 04 May 2016 | Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Wednesday suspended his Republican presidential campaign, ending his underdog bid and hinting at a life perhaps beyond elected office. In a subdued, roughly 15-minute speech, Kasich first thanked his wife Karen, then other family members, staffers, volunteers, Ohio residents and those who contributed to his campaign. An underdog from the start, Kasich held on to become the last candidate standing against front-runner Donald Trump, despite his inability to win any contests beyond Ohio.

Ted Cruz suspends presidential campaign after big defeat in Indiana primary | 03 May 2016 | Ted Cruz bowed out of the Republican presidential race Tuesday following a crushing loss to Donald Trump in Indiana, in speech to his supporters. Cruz's exit clears the path for businessman Donald Trump to clinch the GOP nomination. It was a remarkable turn of events in a presidential primary race that seemed destined -- just weeks ago -- to end in a contested convention this summer...In the end, the growing strength of Trump's candidacy and Cruz's own stumbles in the past two weeks were too much for Cruz to overcome.

The billionaire, now virtually assured of being the GOP's standard-bearer for the general election in November, called the Texas senator 'a tough, smart competitor' during a 20-minute victory speech. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called Trump the 'presumptive GOP nominee' and urged party-wide unity after the property mogul cruised to victory over Cruz in Indiana by a 53 to 37 percent margin.

Sanders wins Indiana, keeping his movement alive | 03 May 2016 | Sen. Bernie Sanders remains on track to lose the Democratic nomination race, but he nonetheless managed to keep his agenda at the center of it with a victory in Indiana over the front-runner, Hillary Clinton. The lone state that voted Tuesday was a test of the continued potency of Sanders's fight as the Vermonter sought to maintain his political revolution as a force with which Clinton will need to wrestle. The win in Indiana will help with that effort.

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. A total of nine reactors operated at Hanford, and though they are now decommissioned, the reactors have left behind 56 million gallons of radioactive waste...Recent reports indicate new breaches in the tanks holding the nuclear waste. Workers on the site have been sickened too, suggesting that the rush to designate Hanford as a park may have been premature.

He was found guilty of theft and sentenced to six months in jail and a handed a 100-euro fine...But Italy's Supreme Court annulled the verdict.

Sanders Wins Indiana Democratic Primary

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.

Ted Cruz Ends His Campaign for President

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."

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!]
