No joke: 500k food stamp recipients to lose benefits on April 1

April 1, 2016 by legitgov

No joke: 500k food stamp recipients to lose benefits on April 1 | 31 March 2016 | More than 500,000 Americans receiving food stamp benefits will no longer qualify for them beginning on April 1. This is a result of government requirements linking the assistance to an individual's ability to find a job and work. In order to keep their access to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) for more than three months, able-bodied adults ages 18-49 who don't have children or other dependents must work, volunteer, or enroll in a job-training program for 20 hours a week or more...By the end of 2016, up to a million people around the nation could lose their benefits. [Obama signed off on this insanity or it wouldn't be law. This is the what happens what a corporatist dirt-bag lies and campaigns as a 'populist' and, with full backing by the corporate-run media, enacts only policies that benefit Wall Street. That's why Obama is toiling day and night, behind the scenes, to ensure his insane TPP is passed in a lame-duck session of Congress.]

He was charged last week with illegally using police computers to look up confidential DMV records.

April 1, 2016 by legitgov

Looks like a big fat false flag went belly-up: CIA left explosive material on Loudoun school bus after training exercise | 31 March 2016 | The CIA left "explosive training material" under the hood of a Loudoun County school bus after a training exercise last week, a bus that was used to ferry elementary and high school students to and from school on Monday and Tuesday with the material still sitting in the engine compartment, according to the CIA and Loudoun County officials. The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and the CIA said in statements Thursday that the explosive material was left behind after a training exercise at Briar Woods High School during spring break. The CIA said it was a training scenario for explosives-detecting dogs.

D.C. Madam's Attorney Says Election Bombshell Already Online

April 1, 2016 by legitgov

D.C. Madam's Attorney Says Election Bombshell Already Online | 31 March 2016 | The colorful litigator who represented the late "D.C. madam" Deborah Palfrey and threatened this week to release call logs of his former client that he says are "very relevant" to the 2016 presidential election tells U.S. News those records already are digitized and posted online. Montgomery Blair Sibley says the records will become public if he fails to reset a 72-hour countdown clock, which could cut short his soft two-week ultimatum for federal courts to consider lifting a 2007 gag order that covers the records, lest he deem that order void. The countdown clock is a safeguard, Sibley says, that ensures that if he disappears the records will be published.

Militant interest in attacking nuclear sites stirs concern in Europe | 30 March 2016 | Meter-thick concrete walls and 1950s-style analog control rooms help protect nuclear plants from bomb attacks and computer hackers, but Islamist militants are turning their attention to the atomic industry's weak spots, security experts say. Concerns about nuclear terrorism rose after Belgian media reported that suicide bombers who killed 32 people in Brussels on March 22 originally looked into attacking a nuclear installation before police raids that netted a number of suspected associates forced them to switch targets..."The insider threat is one of the most difficult to deal with, as this hinges on the ability to screen employees and figure out the nature of their intentions," said Page Stoutland at the U.S.-based Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), citing recent reported incidents in Belgium.

March 31, 2016 by legitgov

Heads up! Let's hope the dirt-bags don't 'go live,' as they did on 9/11: UK and US to simulate cyber-attack on nuclear plants to test resilience | 30 March 2016 | Britain and the US will stage a war-game later this year, simulating a cyber attack on a nuclear power plant, to test the readiness of the government and utility firms. As David Cameron prepares to fly to Washington to attend a nuclear security summit, convened by Barack Obama, government sources said the two countries plan to cooperate on exploring the resilience of nuclear infrastructure to a terrorist attack. Government sources said the exercise was not triggered by any credible intelligence about the threat of such an attack, but that it was" prudent planning," adding: "It gives us the ability to test these systems, and make sure that we learn any lessons."

Police will not be charged in Minneapolis death of black man | 30 March 2016 | Two Minneapolis police officers involved in the shooting death of a 24-year-old black man will not be charged, prosecutors said on Wednesday, because evidence showed Jamar Clark was not handcuffed and that he reached for an officer's gun. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told a news conference that Clark struggled with Officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze, who are white, was not handcuffed and at one point had his hand on a gun. Freeman made the decision not to charge the officers, bypassing use of a grand jury.

Superdelegates are ripping off voters, placing Clinton ahead of Sanders in states where he actually won more votes

Superdelegates are ripping off voters, placing Clinton ahead of Sanders in states where he actually won more votes | 29 March 2016 | After winning five-straight state primaries in relative blowout fashion, Bernie Sanders has cut significantly into Hillary Clinton's pledged delegate lead. According to the most recent totals, Clinton currently has 1,267 pledged delegates to Bernie's 1,037...What's disturbing, though, is that in spite of the actual closeness of the contest between them, members of the political establishment, called superdelegates, are going against the will of the voters in their own states to support Clinton over Sanders.

"One assumes that every one of us ran the risk of a heart attack listening to these words," Castro said in his column, dismissing Obama's comments as "honey-coated" and reminding Cubans of the many U.S. efforts to overthrow and weaken Cuba's government. "We don't need the empire to give us anything," he wrote.

FBI has accessed San Bernardino shooter's phone without Apple's help | 28 March 2016 | The Justice Department is abandoning its bid to force Apple to help it unlock the iPhone used by one of the shooters in the San Bernardino terrorist attack because investigators have found a way in without the tech giant's assistance, prosecutors wrote in a court filing Monday. In a three-sentence filing, prosecutors wrote they had "now successfully accessed the data" stored on Syed Rizwan Farook's iPhone, and they consequently no longer needed Apple's court-ordered help getting in. The stunning move averts a courtroom showdown pitting Apple and privacy interests against the government and security concerns that many in the tech community had warned might set dangerous precedents.

March 28, 2016 by legitgov

Trump threatens lawsuit over lost Louisiana delegates | 28 March 2016 | Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump threatened Sunday to sue Ted Cruz over potentially claiming more Louisiana delegates in a state he technically won.
