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]

November 28, 2014 by legitgov

Pigs will continue to be tortured so Wall Street sack of sociopath sh*t Chris Christie can gain traction in his run for president: Gov. Chris Christie Vetoes Pig Crate Ban Bill, Animals Will Continue to Be Tortured --The contraptions are so small pregnant pigs can't turn around in them. 28 Nov 2014 Republican Gov. Chris Christie has vetoed a politically charged bill that would have banned the use of certain pig cages in his state. In a veto message issued Friday afternoon, Christie, who is seriously considering a 2016 presidential run, called the bill opposing gestation crates a "solution in search of a problem." The contraptions, which are so small pregnant pigs can't turn around in them, are rarely used on New Jersey's 300 pig farms. But they're widespread in Iowa, home to the nation's first presidential nominating caucuses. ['I wonder if he'll come to regret that when he is carted off and crated...'  --CLGer Terry L. Clark]

Counter-terrorism Bill: What it contains

Counter-terrorism Bill: What it contains --Critics say the measures amount to 'internal exile'. 26 Nov 2014 Theresa May, the Home Secretary, will today introduce legislation [the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill] to the Commons intended to give Britain some of the "toughest powers in the world" against terrorism. The measures involve: Passport seizures at the airport - At present, the Home Secretary has to personally authorise each seizure of a passport by Royal Prerogative. Under the reform, police and border officials will be granted a power to temporarily confiscate the passport of suspected terrorists on the spot...Upgraded TPIMs - Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures replaced the Labour-era's Control Orders, used to restrict the activity of suspected terrorists who had not been convicted. They effectively imposed house arrest on suspects, denied them access to the internet and phones, and could oblige them to be relocated in the UK to prevent them consorting with other extremists.

Businesses to receive incentive for hiring illegal immigrants, report says

November 27, 2014 by legitgov

Businesses to receive incentive for hiring illegal immigrants, report says 26 Nov 2014 Businesses reportedly will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers under President Obama's sweeping action on illegal immigration.

Illegal immigrants are ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on ObamaCare’s health exchanges. Congressional aides condemned the loophole saying it puts illegal immigrants ahead of Americans in the job hunt.

Prosecutor Bob McCulloch's bizarre press conference clearing Darren Wilson and instead blaming the 'insatiable appetite' of news outlets and social media 'for anything to talk about' --He turned on the media and internet users by hinting they were responsible for the tension after the shooting - rather than the shooting itself 25 Nov 2014 St Louis County Prosecuting Attorney [sic] Robert McCulloch announced on Monday night that Darren Wilson would not be indicted in a bizarre press conference that instead found others to blame. In the 25-minute announcement, he slammed news outlets and social media - suggesting they were responsible for the tension after the August 9 shooting, rather than the shooting itself. 'The most significant challenge encountered in this investigation has been the 24-hour news cycle and its insatiable appetite for something, for anything to talk about, following closely behind with the non-stop rumors on social media,' he said. McCulloch also turned on the witnesses, saying their statements were largely inconsistent and 'some were completely refuted by the physical evidence'.

U.S. to leave more troops in Afghanistan than first planned - sources --Washington may provide up to 1,000 extra soldiers 25 Nov 2014 The United States is preparing to increase the number of troops it keeps in Afghanistan in 2015 to fill a gap left in the NATO 'mission' by other contributing nations, according to three sources with direct knowledge of the situation.
