Obama's Secret TPP Corporate Takeover Deal Targets Medicare, New Leak Reveals

June 11, 2015 by legitgov

Obama's Secret TPP Corporate Takeover Deal Targets Medicare, New Leak Reveals | 10 June 2015 | For the second time in a week, Medicare is complicating an already fraught debate over the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership trade corporate takeover deal. A recent draft of the health care transparency section of TPP released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday reveals the deal would make Medicare vulnerable to legal challenges from pharmaceutical companies and jeopardize future attempts by the insurer to negotiate lower drug prices. According to an analysis of the leaked document by Jane Kelsey, a law professor at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, these rules are enough to expose national health authorities to legal challenges under TPP's investor-state dispute settlement process, or ISDS. ISDS empowers companies to challenge countries' domestic laws before a tribunal of international judges if they believe the laws unfairly limit investment. The tribunals have the power to impose significant fines on countries if their laws are found responsible for the investment hardship in question. [What an utter and complete FRAUD Obama is and always has been. It is interesting to note, Obama's point person to Congress on the TPP is another sociopath, Paul Ryan.]

June 11, 2015 by legitgov

Mega barf alert! GOP-led House votes to repeal country-of-origin labeling on meat | 10 June 2015 | The Republican-run House passed legislation late Wednesday that would repeal country-of-origin labeling requirements for beef, pork and chicken products. Passage of the [disgusting] measure passed on a vote of 300-131. The World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled last month against the U.S. appeal to keep its existing country-of-origin labeling regulation for imported cuts of beef and pork. The regulation, issued in 2013, would require meat labels state where the livestock was born, raised and slaughtered. Consumer advocacy groups who support the labeling requirements warned that the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade corporate takeover pact could further threaten regulations meant to protect public safety.

Israel's Spy Virus 'Duqu' Targeted Hotels Used for Iran Nuclear Talks

June 11, 2015 by legitgov

Israel's Spy Virus 'Duqu' Targeted Hotels Used for Iran Nuclear Talks | 10 June 2015 | When a cybersecurity firm discovered it had been hacked last year by a virus widely believed to be used by Israeli spies, it wanted to know who else was on the hit list. The Moscow-based firm, Kaspersky Lab ZAO, checked millions of computers world-wide...Each European hotel was infiltrated by the virus before hosting high-stakes negotiations between Iran and world powers over curtailing Tehran's nuclear program. The spyware, the firm has now concluded, was an improved version of Duqu, a virus first identified by cybersecurity experts in 2011, according to a Kaspersky report and outside security experts. Current and former U.S. officials and many cybersecurity experts say they believe Duqu was designed to carry out Israel's most sensitive intelligence collection.

He then attended a call where a teenage girl was threatening to jump off her parents' roof.

Al-Qaida 'cut off and ripped apart by Isis'

June 11, 2015 by legitgov

Al-Qaida 'cut off and ripped apart by Isis' | 10 June 2015 | Two of al-Qaida's most important spiritual leaders have told the Guardian that the terror group is no longer a functioning organisation after being ripped apart by Isis [I-CIA-SIS]. In a wide-ranging interview, Abu Qatada, a Jordanian preacher who was based in London before being deported in 2013, and Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, regarded as the most influential jihadi scholar alive, say the al-Qaida [al-CIA-duh] leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, is cut off from his commanders and keeping the group afloat through little more than appeals to loyalty. Senior insiders in Jordan add that al-Qaida around the Middle East has been drained of recruits and money after losing territory and prestige to its former subordinate division. The ongoing war between al-Qaida and Isis has left the US struggling to catch up with the tectonic shifts within the global jihadi movement, intelligence insiders told the Guardian.

Valves with 'multiple faults' in EPR nuclear reactor pose meltdown risk, inspectors warn --Flamanville third-generation EPR nuclear reactor - the same model Britain plans to use for two new plants at Hinkley Point - has multiple faults in crucial safety valves, inspectors warn | 09 June 2015 | Nuclear safety inspectors have found crucial faults in the cooling system of France's flagship new-generation nuclear power plant on the Channel coast, exposing it to the risk of meltdown.

France's nuclear safety watchdog found "multiple" malfunctioning valves in the Flamanville EPR that could cause its meltdown, in a similar scenario to the 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear accident in the US.

"He came into the call out of control and as the video shows was out of control during the incident," McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley told a news conference.
