December 2, 2014 by legitgov

Russia launches 'wartime government' HQ in major military upgrade 1 Dec 2014 Russia is launching a new national defense facility, which is meant to monitor threats to national security in peacetime, but would take control of the entire country in case of war. The new top-security, fortified facility in Moscow includes several large war rooms, a brand new supercomputer in the heart of a state-of-the-art data processing center, underground facilities, secret transport routes for emergency evacuation and a helicopter pad, which was deployed for the first time on Nov. 24 on the Moscow River. The new National Defense Control Center (NDCC) is a major upgrade on what was previously called the Central Command of the General Staff, a unit tasked with round-the-clock monitoring of military threats against Russia, particularly ballistic missile launches, and deployment of strategic nuclear weapons.

Heads up! Big false flag brewing in the UK: Al Qaeda plot to blow up 5 passenger planes in Christmas 'spectacular' --'Everyone is expecting something catastrophic very soon' - Inside source --Security experts also warn that future terror attacks could be carried out by sleepers [or, MI6 agents] 1 Dec 2014 Terrorists are plotting to blow up five European passenger jets in a Christmas "spectacular", security experts say.

Mobile phones and electronic devices could still be banned from plane cabins, with the threat of a 9/11-style coordinated attack on London and other major cities feared imminent. The plot, which has been known about for the past two months, is thought to involve Islamists smuggling bombs on to planes bound for major European destinations before Christmas.

FEMA's regional watch center compiled near-daily reports from open sources like news accounts, social media and, in one case, a map created by a user of the Reddit website.

December 2, 2014 by legitgov

'Monster' Fracking Wells Guzzle Water in Drought-Stricken Regions 24 Nov 2014 2014 The fracking industry likes to minimize the sector's bottomless thirst for often-scarce water resources, saying it takes about 2-4 million gallons of water to frack the average well, an amount the American Petroleum Institute describes as "the equivalent of three to six Olympic swimming pools." That's close to the figure cited by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well. But a new report released by Environmental Working Group (EWG) located 261 "monster" wells that consumed between 10 and 25 million gallons of water to drill each well.

Obama says key issue is to avoid violence in Hong Kong protests 10 Nov 2014 U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday the pro-democracy CIA/US corporatist-backed protests in Hong Kong were a "complex" issue and the primary U.S. message was to make sure violence was avoided. "We don't expect China to follow an American model in every instance but we're going to continue to have concerns about human rights...Our primary message has been to make sure that violence is avoided," he said on a visit to Beijing. [*Speaking* of human rights, what about Ferguson, Missouri; Guantanamo Bay; the daily drone assassinations, war crimes by the CIA-backed Nazi regime in Ukraine, etc.?]

December 1, 2014 by legitgov

GOP staffer who called Sasha and Malia Obama 'classless' was arrested for shoplifting as a teen 21 Nov 2014 The GOP staffer who was forced to resign today after calling the first daughters 'classless' is now being exposed as a hypocrite. Elizabeth Lauten, 31, stepped down from her job as communications director for a Republican representative (Stephen Fincher, TN) after her Facebook diatribe against Sasha and Malia Obama's behavior and dress at the annual Turkey pardoning sparked outrage online. Evidence has now emerged indicating Lauten didn't exactly practice what she preached when she was a teen, growing up out of the public eye in North Carolina. When Lauten was 17, just a year older than the president's eldest daughter Malia, she was caught stealing from a Belk department store in her hometown, according to court records obtained by the Smoking Gun.

41 men targeted but 1,147 people killed: US drone strikes - the facts on the ground

December 1, 2014 by legitgov

41 men targeted but 1,147 people killed: US drone strikes - the facts on the ground 24 Nov 2014 ...Finally, on 15 October 2010, Hellfire missiles fired from a Predator or Reaper drone killed Qari Hussain, the Pakistani Taliban later confirmed. For the death of a man whom practically no American can name, the US killed 128 people, 13 of them children, none of whom it meant to harm. A new analysis of the data available to the public about drone strikes, conducted by the human-rights group Reprieve, indicates that even when operators target specific individuals - the most focused effort of what Barack Obama calls "targeted killing" - they kill vastly more people than their targets, often needing to strike multiple times. Attempts to kill 41 men resulted in the deaths of an estimated 1,147 people, as of 24 November.

Ohio Republicans push law to keep all details of executions secret

November 30, 2014 by legitgov

Ohio Republicans push law to keep all details of executions secret 29 Nov 2014 Republican lawmakers in Ohio are rushing through the most extreme secrecy bill yet attempted by a death penalty state, which would withhold information on every aspect of the execution process from the public, media and even the courts. Legislators are trying to force through the bill, HB 663, in time for the state's next scheduled execution, on 11 February. Unlike other death penalty states that have shrouded procedures in secrecy, the Ohio bill seeks to bar even the courts from access to essential information. Attorneys representing death-row inmates, for instance, would no longer be able to request disclosure under court protection of the identity and qualifications of medical experts who advised the state on their techniques.

SWAT or military contractors shown setting fire to vehicle in Ferguson 30 Nov 2014 (Video posted by Che Lank, 'SWAT Police Caught Setting Fires in Ferguson.') A video appears to show paramilitary police [or military contractors] setting fire to a vehicle in front of Advance Auto Parts on West Florissant Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri -- the street where nearly every fire occurred. The building was already under lockdown. [And so, the only question *I* have: Were the same military contractors who carried out the Boston bombings false flag (possibly Craft International, whose backpacks matched *perfectly* to the FBI-disseminated photos of those found at the scene) the same lunatics who burned the buildings in Ferguson, to justify a heavy militarized police presence and Governor Jay Nixon's National Guard call-up? --LRP]
