U.S. Bars American Planes From Ukraine Air Region Where Passenger Jet is Then Shot Down 17 Jul 2014 (Fox News live report, 1:10 E.D.T. Thursday, no link.) [Hmm. Remember when key officials in the Bush regime were advised not to fly on civilian passenger jets, prior to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks?]

July 17, 2014 by legitgov

Snowden: 'If I end up in chains in Guantanamo I can live with that' 17 Jul 2014 "If I end up in chains in Guantanamo I can live with that," Edward Snowden, the former intelligence contractor-turned-privacy advocate, told the Guardian newspaper during a recent interview released in part by the paper on Thursday. Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger and reporter Ewen MacAskill spent seven hours conducting an interview in Moscow earlier this month with Snowden, a former analyst for the United States National Security Agency now wanted in the US for espionage, and the newspaper plans to publish the full conversation at the end of the week.

9 EU countries ready to block economic sanctions against Russia 15 Jul 2014 France, Germany, and Italy are among EU members who don't want to follow the US lead and impose trade sanctions on Russia. US sanctions are seen as a push to promote its own multibillion free-trade pact with Europe. "France, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, Slovenia, and EU President Italy see no reason in the current environment for the introduction of sectorial trade and economic sanctions against Russia and at the summit, will block the measure," a diplomatic source told ITAR-TASS.

The US has moved to impose tougher sanctions against Russia over the tense situation in Ukraine. The widened set of restrictions have been placed on the country's largest oil producer Rosneft and major bank Vnesheconombank among others.

July 17, 2014 by legitgov

Innocent and Gone: Israeli Strike on Gaza Kills Four Children 16 Jul 2014 The terrible human toll from the nine-day Gaza conflict was laid bare Wednesday when four Palestinian boys from the same family were killed as they played football on a beach. Three other children were wounded - one of them critically - in the attack, which appeared to be from Israeli naval shelling near the port area of Gaza City. There were scenes of anguish at the nearby al-Shifa hospital as the parents of the victims learned of the attack. "My son! My son!" cried the mother of one of the boys.

Edward Snowden should not face trial, says UN human rights commissioner

Edward Snowden should not face trial, says UN human rights commissioner 16 Jul 2014 The United Nations' top human rights official has suggested that the United States should abandon its efforts to prosecute Edward Snowden, saying his revelations of massive state surveillance had been in the public interest. The UN high commissioner for human rights, Navi Pillay, credited Snowden, a former US National Security Agency contractor, with starting a global debate that has led to calls for the curtailing of state powers to snoop on citizens online and store their data. "Those who disclose human rights violations should be protected: we need them," Pillay told a news conference.

MSNBC's Alex Wagner Hits Demo Low with 19K Viewers

July 17, 2014 by legitgov

MSNBC's Alex Wagner Hits Demo Low with 19K Viewers 16 Jul 2014 MSNBC's NOW with Alex Wagner hit an all-time low in the 25-54 demo Tuesday afternoon during 4 p.m. time slot with just 19K viewers. The show came in a distant third place behind CNN's The Lead with Jake Tapper (147K) and Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto (145K). Not counting Thanksgiving Day 2013, the ratings marked MSNBC's lowest 4 p.m. numbers since August 2005. [LOL! That's because MSNBC fired actual journalist Martin Bashir, as he dared to criticize pea-brain Sarah Palin.]

Australian bill sees whistleblowing on intel ops punishable by up to 10 years in jail 17 Jul 2014 Australia's attorney general has proposed a new bill which would see potential whistleblowers facing up to 10 years in prison for leaks on special intelligence operations. Publishing Snowden-like revelations could cost dear in Australia after attorney general George Brandis presented to the parliamentary joint committee on intelligence and security a new bill expanding powers of the Australian Security Intelligence Organization (ASIO).

Journalists will face jail over spy leaks under new security laws

July 17, 2014 by legitgov

Journalists will face jail over spy leaks under new security laws 16 Jul 2014 Australian journalists could face prosecution and jail for reporting Snowden-style revelations about certain spy operations, in an "outrageous" expansion of the government's national security powers, leading criminal lawyers have warned. A bill presented to parliament on Wednesday by the attorney general, George Brandis, would expand the powers of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (Asio), including creation of a new offence punishable by five years in jail for "any person" who disclosed information relating to "special intelligence operations". The person would be liable for a 10-year term if the disclosure would "endanger the health or safety of any person or prejudice the effective conduct of a special intelligence operation".

Endangered Manatees Face a New Threat: Lawsuits

Endangered Manatees Face a New Threat: Lawsuits 08 Jul 2014 What do manatees and bureaucracy have in common? They both have a tendency to move slowly--sometimes painfully slowly. In Florida manatees' own lethargy puts the animals at risk of being killed or injured by the speedboats that zip through the state's waterways. Sluggish bureaucracy, meanwhile, has created an opportunity for [terrorist] groups who oppose the manatees' protected status to file a lawsuit to remove the "sea cows" from the endangered species list.

More children die as Israel steps up Gaza attacks 16 Jul 2014 Israel intensify air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. Attacks in the Gaza Strip killed at least seven Palestinians in the early hours of Wednesday, Gaza health officials said, and destroyed the house of Mahmoud Zahar - who is believed to be in hiding elsewhere - in the first apparent targeting of a top Hamas political leader. Among those reported killed was a five-month-old baby.

Navy nurse refuses to force-feed Guantanamo captive

Navy nurse refuses to force-feed Guantánamo captive --Prisoner's lawyer says her client described the Navy medical officer’s refusal as an act of conscientious objection. 16 Jul 2014 In the first known rebellion against Guantánamo's force-feeding policy, a Navy medical officer recently refused to continue managing tube-feedings of prison hunger strikers and was reassigned to "alternative duties." A prison camp spokesman, Navy Capt. Tom Gresback, would not provide precise details but said Monday night that the episode had "no impact to medical support operations at the base." Guantánamo currently has 149 detainees prisoners, an unknown number of them on hunger strike under a blackout imposed by U.S. Southern Command in December after nine months of daily disclosure.

Senate GOP Blocks Bill on Contraception Coverage

July 16, 2014 by legitgov

Senate GOP Blocks Bill on Contraception Coverage 16 Jul 2014 Senate Republicans have blocked a bill aimed at restoring free contraception for women who get their health insurance from companies that object on religious grounds. The vote on Wednesday was 56-43 to move ahead on the measure, short of the 60 votes necessary [sic] to proceed. Democrats sponsored the election-year bill to reverse last month's Supreme Court ruling that closely held businesses with religious objections could deny coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law. [With a 56-43 vote, this bill -- like *so many others* -- would have passed if sycophantic DemocRATs forced a change in the filibuster rule years ago. Obama purposefully never pushed the issue, to ensure that Wall Street's influence (via the GOP) would thwart any measure that would actually help the people. If the GOP takes the Senate and a Republican wins the White House, does anyone actually believe a Republican president would allow Democrats to filibuster every piece of legislation? As Democrats are typically afraid of their own shadow, they would not. --LRP]

Only a fraction landed in urban regions. The [US taxpayer-funded] Iron Dome, which is only meant to intercept rockets that are headed for such areas, has an 87 percent success rate and has shot down 180 rockets over the course of the operation.

Both water and electricity supplies have been affected by the current round of hostilities, de Maio said.

(TEPCO) is moving ahead with plans to remove more highly radioactive debris from the No. 1 reactor building later this month...In addition to the fourteen paddies contaminated beyond the Fukushima evacuation zone, five sites within the zone were also contaminated.

He was released on his own recognizance with a notice to appear before an immigration judge, the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement.

Assemblyman wants to keep other states' red light cameras from ticketing N.J. drivers 15 Jul 2014 Come December, drivers in New Jersey may no longer have to worry about getting caught on camera running a red light. And if one state lawmaker has his way, New Jersey drivers won't have to worry about [corpora-terrorists'] red light cameras in other states either. With New Jersey's red light camera program set to expire in December, Assemblyman Declan O'Scanlon (R-Monmouth) last week introduced a bill (A3527) that would block the state Motor Vehicle Commission from sharing drivers' license plate information with "another state or an interstate motor vehicle information network for the purpose of imposing or collecting a fine" from an alleged red light or speed camera violation.

US court partly overturns Guantanamo prisoner's conviction

US court partly overturns Guantanamo prisoner's conviction 15 Jul 2014 The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has partially overturned the conviction of a prisoner at the notorious US-run Guantanamo prison. On Monday, the court vacated Ali Hamza al Bahlul's conviction for solicitation of others to commit war crimes and providing material support for terrorism, but upheld his conviction for conspiracy to commit war crimes. The court also ruled that the solicitation charge against Bahlul "is plainly not an offence traditionally triable by military commission," essentially saying that the commission does not have the authority to review such offence.

Some 2,500 earthquakes in Oklahoma linked to fracking 08 Jul 2014 The last five years have seen Oklahoma experience more than 2,500 earthquakes - the vast majority of which are being connected to the oil and gas exploration process of fracking. Although past studies have also suggested Oklahoma's earthquake spike is related to fracking, this is the first time scientists have pinned such numbers to the controversial procedure. Notably, they found that fracking could also be responsible for earthquakes occurring nearly 20 miles away from drilling and waste deposit sites.
