House Dem calls for undiluted NSA reforms 3 Nov 2014 With an eye on the Senate's lame duck session, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) is pressing the upper chamber to vote on a bill curbing National Security Agency (NSA) authority. "We have the first chance in more than a decade to finally place some real limits on the sweeping, unwarranted -- and at times unlawful -- government surveillance that many of us have fought against for the past several years," said Nadler, a member of the Judiciary Committee, which unanimously approved the House version of the bill in May. The full House passed the measure, the USA Freedom Act, later that month. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) has introduced a version of the bill, but changes are expected before the lame-duck Senate considers it.

Court rejects appeal over Senate filibuster rules

November 3, 2014 by legitgov

Court rejects appeal over Senate filibuster rules 3 Nov 2014 The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a public interest group and four members of Congress who challenged the Senate filibuster as unconstitutional. The justices on Monday let stand a lower court ruling that said Common Cause and the lawmakers did not have legal standing to pursue the case. The plaintiffs argued that Senate rules requiring at least 60 votes to bring legislation to a vote violates the constitutional principle of majority rule. [Right, so since the Koch Suckers on the Supreme Court let the 60-vote rule stand, if the GOP takes the Senate, Democrats need to filibuster *everything,* or else Wall Street/CIA troll Obama and his Republican friends will ram through the TPP, the deadly Keystone XL Pipeline, cuts to Social Security, and more wars for Exxon Mobil and Monsanto, etc. -LRP]

Anti-quarantine nurse Hickox was trained as intelligence officer by the CDC 30 Oct 2014 Nurse Kaci Hickox, who has made headlines over the last few days by refusing to quarantine herself after returning from the Ebola front lines in Africa, turns out to have been trained as an "intelligence officer" under a two-year CDC program modeled after the U.S. military.

Ferguson no-fly zone was reportedly aimed at media 2 Nov 2014 Police in Ferguson, Missouri requested the federal government institute a no-fly zone in more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding the city in an effort to keep news helicopters away during violent protests, the Associated Press reported Sunday. The Federal Aviation Administration in August agreed to the police request to restrict the airspace surrounding Ferguson for 12 days, saying it was for safety due to the demonstrations following the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. However, officials reportedly acknowledged in taped telephone conversations that the real reason for the no-fly zone was to keep media helicopters away.

November 3, 2014 by legitgov

Israeli ministers pass bill jailing stone-throwers for 20 years 2 Nov 2014 Government ministers in Israel have voted to increase penalties ten-fold on people convicted of throwing stones at vehicles from two to 20 years, in a move designed to deal with a wave of violence that has hit some of Jerusalem's Arab districts. If Israeli courts can prove that someone threw a stone with the intent of causing serious bodily harm, they may be able to impose a jail sentence of 20 years. The law would also allow the conviction of people who hurl rocks at police cars or police officers with the aim of hindering them from carrying out their duty.

Midterm elections: Fear of terrorism once against haunts American politics 2 Nov 2014 As Americans head to the polls for Tuesday’s midterm congressional elections, their country once again at war in the Middle East, many have reached to the same conclusion as Mr Dow. For the first time in nearly a decade, the fear of terrorism is playing a major a role in an election and giving Republicans an edge [due to the push 24/7 of that meme by the corporate-owned media] as the party most trusted to keep the country safe...Around 55 per cent said they backed the Republican Party on preventing terrorism, compared to 32 per cent for Democrats - the largest gap since voters rallied around George W Bush in the aftermath of 9/11 [, the inside job].

Maine judge rejects Ebola quarantine of nurse 31 Oct 2014 Nurse Kaci Hickox, who treated Ebola patients in Africa and defied Maine's attempts to place her in quarantine, will be allowed to leave her home but must be actively monitored for symptoms of the virus, a judge ruled Friday.

The only people in Ghana who got Ebola were those who received treatments and injections from Red Cross

US Red Cross: Thieves, frauds, sociopaths, and killers: The only people in Ghana who got Ebola were those who received treatments and injections from Red Cross 8 Oct 2014 Nana Kwame writes: People in the Western World need to know what's happening here in West Africa. THEY ARE LYING!!! "Ebola" as a virus does NOT Exist and is NOT "Spread". The Red Cross has brought a disease to 4 specific countries for 4 specific reasons and it is only contracted by those who receive treatments and injections from the Red Cross. That is why Liberians and Nigerians have begun kicking the Red Cross out of their countries and reporting in the news the truth. Reason 1: This vaccine implemented sickness being "called" Ebola was introduced into West Africa for the end goal of getting troops on the ground in Nigeria, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. If you remember America was just trying to get into Nigeria for "Boko Haram" #BULLSHIT but that fell apart when Nigerians started telling the truth. There ARE NO GIRLS MISSING. Global support fell through the floor, and a new reason was needed to get troops into Nigeria and steal the new oil reserves they have discovered. Reason 2: Sierra Leone is the World's Largest Supplier of Diamonds. For the past 4 months they have been on strike, refusing to provide diamonds due to horrible working conditions and slave pay. The West will not pay a fair wage for the resources because the idea is to keep these people surviving on rice bags and foreign aid so that they remain a source of cheap slave labor forever...

November 1, 2014 by legitgov

NSA Phone Surveillance Faces Fresh Court Test 31 Oct 2014 The National Security Agency's collection of Americans' phone records will face a fresh test this coming week when a Washington, D.C., appeals-court panel hears arguments over the surveillance program. Tuesday's arguments are just one of three federal appeals-court challenges to the NSA's gathering of millions of Americans' phone records--an issue that could eventually reach the U.S. Supreme Court. The cases, which include two separate lawsuits in New York and San Francisco, were prompted by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden's revelations last year detailing the scope of U.S. government surveillance.

Wyden calls foul on CIA's redactions of pseudonyms in forthcoming torture report 31 Oct 2014 U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden raised a stink Friday about the CIA's call to black out  pseudonyms of agency personnel from its forthcoming - and highly controversial report on the overseas torture of suspected terrorists. The senior senator from Oregon said in a news release that he had no problem with the CIA using pseudonyms of people involved in the brutal interrogation program was "unprecedented and unacceptable." The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, on which Wyden sits, has haggled with the CIA for many months over the release its report on interrogations of suspected terrorists after 9/11. "This report is about mistakes, misdeeds and falsehoods that were repeated over a period of years," Wyden said..."A lot of officials are intent on burying the full story, but getting the truth out is the only way to keep all of this from happening again."

Federal civil rights charges unlikely against police officer in Ferguson shooting

November 1, 2014 by legitgov

Federal civil rights charges unlikely against police officer in Ferguson shooting 31 Oct 2014 Justice Department 'investigators' have all but concluded they do not have a strong enough case to bring civil rights charges against Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., law enforcement officials said. When racial tension boiled over in Ferguson after the Aug. 9 shooting, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. traveled to the St. Louis suburb to meet with city leaders and protest organizers in an effort to bring calm. He assured them that the federal government would open a civil rights investigation into the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. But that investigation now seems unlikely to result in any charges.

Judge eases limits on nurse who treated Ebola patients 31 Oct 2014 A Maine judge on Friday imposed limited restrictions on an American nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone and rejected a bid by state officials for more stringent measures. The confrontation between Kaci Hickox and officials in the state of Maine has become the focal point of a dispute pitting several U.S. states opting for strict quarantines against the federal government, which opposes such measures. Hickox's lawyer called the ruling a "terrific win" and Maine Governor Paul LePage said that while he was disappointed, the state would abide by the judge's order.

U.S. nurses union to stage strikes over Ebola protection 30 Oct 2014 A California-based nurses union said Thursday it was organizing strikes and other protests against what it views as insufficient protection for nurses caring for patients stricken with the deadly Ebola virus.

[How come Israel doesn't have to hold bake sales when it needs another $500 million toward Iron Dome? Start reading.]

Yale evaluation of Sandy Hook shooter Lanza not given to Newtown schools

Yale evaluation of Sandy Hook shooter Lanza not given to Newtown schools 23 Oct 2014 Newtown school officials appear to have had an incomplete mental health history of [alleged] Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza before he entered high school, according to a draft of a soon-to-be-released report by the state Office of the Child Advocate. No copies of the draft have been distributed...Lanza, in his early teens, was prescribed the antidepressant Celexa by Yale clinicians. Included in the case files are emails between Peter Lanza and Kathleen Koenig, a clinical nurse specialist in psychiatry at the Yale Child Study Center, "regarding her treatment sessions with the shooter, as well as an evaluation by" Dr. Paul Fox, a former Connecticut psychiatrist who now lives in New Zealand. [Down the rabbit hole with him.] Once when Koenig prescribed a small dose of Celexa to Adam Lanza, Nancy Lanza called Koenig's office to report that Adam Lanza was "unable to raise his arm" and she blamed it on the medication. [Yes, Lanza stopped taking the medication, as it would be difficult to shoot 26 people with an assault rifle if you can't raise your arm.]

NYC 'Actively Monitoring' 117 People at Risk for Ebola

October 30, 2014 by legitgov

NYC 'Actively Monitoring' 117 People at Risk for Ebola 30 Oct 2014 The city is actively monitoring nearly 120 people who have recently returned from Ebola-stricken countries out of an abundance of caution as it seeks to prevent the spread of the deadly virus, Mayor de Blasio's administration said Thursday. Marti Adams, first deputy press secretary for the administration, said most of the 117 people being monitored arrived in New York City from Guinea, Sierra Leone or Liberia Oct. 11 or later. Active monitoring means state or local health officials establish regular communication with the individuals, rather than relying on them to self-monitor and report potential symptoms.
