September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Gag me with a chainsaw: Duke University creates a 'safe space' room for 'marginalized' students 'to heal' | 01 Sept 2016 | Students returning to Duke University this year will see a new addition to campus: a 'safe space' room. Student newspaper The Duke Chronicle reports that an old faculty office was turned into the safe space inside the Sanford School of Public Policy. School spokesman Karen Kemp confirmed the new room but would not go into any more detail about it. 'It's the first day of classes, and the professors who lead the school's diversity and inclusion committee aren't available to chat further about this,' Kemp told The Fix. [Help! I need a safe space to take refuge from the safe spaces!]

Hurricane Hermine slams Florida, leaving thousands without power

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Hermine pounds Florida, then churns north into Carolinas | 03 Sept 2016 | Hurricane Hermine wreaked havoc across Florida on Friday, causing widespread power outages and flooding before diminishing into a tropical storm and plowing up the Atlantic Coast into the Carolinas with a still-potent mix of high winds and heavy rains. The first hurricane to make landfall in Florida in 11 years, Hermine swept ashore early on Friday near the Gulf shore town of St. Marks, 20 miles (30 km) south of the capital of Tallahassee, packing winds of 80 mph (130 kph) and churning up a devastating storm surge in coastal areas. Torrential downpours and high surf left parts of some communities under water early Friday, with mandatory evacuations ordered in parts of five northwestern Florida counties.

Donald Trump in SW Ohio: 'America first,' focus on populism

September 2, 2016 by legitgov

Donald Trump in SW Ohio: 'America first,' focus on populism | 01 Sept 2016 | Donald Trump promised to put "America first," refocusing on populist feelings that have fueled his campaign, and largely avoided his more controversial positions in a double-shot campaign stop in Southwest Ohio Thursday. In a midday rally in Wilmington, Trump advocated for "bold" changes to the country's immigration system, but avoided details of his stances on deporting people who are in the U.S. illegally. Instead, he spoke of building a wall on the Mexican border and of treating immigrants with "compassion." It's not that Trump has changed course on immigration: He generally doubled down on his hard-line immigration stances in a Wednesday night speech in Arizona.

Trump is ahead in national poll as Clinton slumps to 39 per cent before crucial Labor Day watershed

September 1, 2016 by legitgov

Trump is AHEAD in national poll as Clinton slumps to 39 per cent before crucial Labor Day watershed | 01 Sept 2016 | Donald Trump has overtaken Hillary Clinton for the first time since mid-July, according to a weekly Rasmussen poll published on Thursday. Trump is polling at 40 per cent, a point ahead of Clinton at 39. It's a striking reversal of fortunes for the two candidates compared to last week, when Clinton led Trump 42 to 38. The result comes as Labor Day approaches. Following the holiday presidential campaigns ratchet up several notches, so polls then are seen as giving whoever is ahead at that point a crucial psychological advantage.

September 1, 2016 by legitgov

Chemotherapy warning: Cancer drugs are killing up to 50 per cent of patients in some UK hospitals --Research published in The Lancet Oncology | 31 Aug 2016 | Patients should be warned about the dangers of chemotherapy after research showed that cancer drugs are killing up to 50 per cent of patients in some UK hospitals. For the first time researchers looked at the numbers of cancer patients who died within 30 days of starting chemotherapy, which indicates that the medication is the cause of death, rather than the cancer. The study by Public Health England and Cancer Research UK found that across England around 8.4 per cent of patients with lung cancer, and 2.4 per cent of breast cancer patients died within a month. But in some hospitals the figure was far higher.

U.S. Supreme Court refuses to restore NC voter ID, reduce early voting days

September 1, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. Supreme Court refuses to restore NC voter ID, reduce early voting days | 31 Aug 2016 | The U.S. Supreme Court refused Wednesday to reinstate North Carolina's voter identification requirement and keep just 10 days of early in-person voting. The court rejected a request by Gov. Pat McCrory and other state officials to delay a lower court ruling that found the state law was tainted by racial discrimination. The decision - a victory for voting rights groups and President Barack Obama's Justice Department - means voters won't have to show one of several qualifying photo IDs when casting ballots in the presidential battleground state. Early voting also reverts to 17 days, to begin Oct. 20.

Trump: 'There will be no amnesty'

September 1, 2016 by legitgov

Trump: 'There will be no amnesty' | 31 Aug 2016 | Donald Trump on Wednesday stated clearly there would be "no amnesty" for undocumented immigrants living in the US, putting to rest questions about whether he was softening his stance on the issue that's driven much of his campaign. "For those here illegally today who are seeking legal status, they will have one route and one route only. To return home and apply for re-entry like everybody else under the rules of the new legal immigration system that I have outlined today," the Republican presidential nominee said. He added: "There will be no amnesty."

Trump Recommits to Mass Deportation in Fiery Immigration Speech

September 1, 2016 by legitgov

Trump Recommits to Mass Deportation in Fiery Immigration Speech | 31 Aug 2016 | Donald Trump's self-declared "softening" on immigration is gone, replaced by a recommitment to a hardline policy that could best be described as mass deportation. Shouting his remarks to a fired-up crowd in Arizona, which has been home to some of the most contentious immigration policy fights of the last decade, Trump pledged a maximal approach that would target ever undocumented immigrant in the country without mercy. "There will be no amnesty," Trump said. "Our message to the world will be this: You cannot obtain legal status or become a citizen of the United States by illegally entering our country."

Donald Trump Calls Mexican President 'a Friend'

August 31, 2016 by legitgov

Donald Trump Calls Mexican President 'a Friend' | 31 Aug 2016 | Donald J. Trump met in Mexico on Wednesday with President Enrique Peña Nieto. In a subdued joint appearance before the press in Mexico City, the two men described the meeting as warm, despite significant disagreements on issues of trade and immigration. Mr. Trump was expected to then travel to Arizona, where he was to detail his immigration policies in a speech. Here are some highlights from the day: Mr. Trump reached out to the Mexican president and people. Mr. Trump, first reading slowly from a statement and then speaking more freely in response to a question, said he now considered Mr. Peña Nieto a friend and heaped praise on Americans of Mexican descent. Mexican-Americans, Mr. Trump said, were "beyond reproach" and "spectacular, hard-working people."

August 31, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. resumes scheduled passenger flights to Cuba after more than 50 yrs | 01 Sept 2016 | The first scheduled commercial passenger flight from the United States to Cuba in more than half a century landed on Wednesday, opening another chapter in the Obama administration's efforts to improve ties and increase trade and travel with the former Cold War foe. A JetBlue Airways Corp passenger jet arrived from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in the central Cuban city of Santa Clara. The route may be a commercial challenge, at least initially, but it is the first of a plethora of new flights by various U.S. airlines to destinations on the Communist-ruled island. U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, JetBlue Chief Executive Officer Robin Hayes, other officials and journalists were aboard the 150-seat plane.

More George W. Bush officials are backing Hillary Clinton | 31 Aug 2016 | Hillary Clinton cast Donald Trump as unqualified for the role of commander in chief in a speech to a veterans group on Wednesday meant to draw a contrast in leadership with the Republican presidential nominee, who is traveling abroad. Speaking at the American Legion's national convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, described Trump as erratic, dangerous and a threat to U.S. security...Earlier in the day, the Clinton campaign rolled out its latest Republican endorsement, this one from James Clad, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for President [sic] George W. Bush. Clinton said she was "deeply honored" to have so many Republicans backing her campaign. [Yup, Hillary's overjoyed that Bush's unindicted war criminals, sociopaths, 9/11 architects, and TPP pimps are 'with her.']

August 31, 2016 by legitgov

Heads up! Coup 2016 underway: Homeland eyes special declaration to take charge of elections | 30 Aug 2016 | Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks [likely an inside job, perpetrated by and for the same corporations who own and operate the electronic 'voting' machines] on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a "critical infrastructure," giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid. The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials. "We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

As Obamacare choices dwindle, feds face consumer, political backlash | 29 Aug 2016 | Up to 2.1 million people will likely have to change plans for 2017 due to insurers leaving states' Affordable Care Act marketplaces, up from more than 1.2 million who had to find new insurers last year...The new estimates, from data expert Charles Gaba of ACASignups.net, come as another analysis shows five states are expected to have just one company selling insurance on the 2017 Obamacare exchanges. Consumers in most counties in nine other states won't find any competition for their exchange business either, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The documents also show that BAE Systems already delivered such a system to the regime sometime before December 31, 2014, and that the new license is for "extension service, support, testing, and maintenance."

Mangled 'MH370 debris' found off coast of Mozambique suggests jet EXPLODED and was not under control of the pilot when it crashed

Mangled 'MH370 debris' found off the coast of Mozambique suggests the jet EXPLODED and was not under control of the pilot when it crashed | 28 Aug 2016 | Another piece of aircraft wreckage, believed to be from MH370, has added strength to the belief that the plane was not under the control of a pilot when it smashed into the southern Indian Ocean. A South African tour operator in Mozambique says he found the large triangular-shaped piece, measuring about a meter wide and a meter long, on the country's east coast. The fact that it is badly mangled with torn edges has led experts to conclude that the aircraft was not glided down for a 'soft' landing on the sea - a claim by those who believe pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah turned 'rogue' and took control of the aircraft on a suicide flight to end in the ocean where it would sink and drown everyone on board.

Trump vows crackdown on immigrants who overstay visas if elected | 28 Aug 2016 | U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump offered fresh details of how he would tackle illegal immigration on Saturday, saying he would crack down on those who overstay their visas as he sought to quiet criticism from conservatives. In a campaign speech in Des Moines, Iowa, Trump also cited the shooting death of a cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade to urge African-American voters to rally behind him, calling it an example of violence that has to be addressed. Trump, speaking on the Iowa State Fairgrounds with hay bales stacked behind him, sought to clarify his views on how to overhaul the U.S. immigration system after saying earlier in the week that he was softening on his plan to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants.

'PsyOps to build case against Assad'

August 28, 2016 by legitgov

'PsyOps to build case against Assad' | 26 Aug 2016 | The West doesn't want to acknowledge it enabled, and sometimes directly supported, groups in Syria that use chemical weapons as a pretext to put the onus for this on the Assad government, says retired CIA and US State Department official Larry Johnson. A joint investigation by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) accuses the Syrian government of carrying out two chemical weapons attacks in the past two years, as well as ISIS for using mustard gas in one of them. RT: Commenting on the UN report, Washington said Assad must be held to account. But why did the US remain silent when so-called moderate rebels admitted carrying out a chemical attack in April this year, in Aleppo? Larry Johnson: The real problem with the chemical weapons - I call them 'so-called chemical weapons' - is that it has been almost entirely the rebels and not the government.
