Trump vows crackdown on immigrants who overstay visas if elected

August 28, 2016 by legitgov

Trump vows crackdown on immigrants who overstay visas if elected | 28 Aug 2016 | U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump offered fresh details of how he would tackle illegal immigration on Saturday, saying he would crack down on those who overstay their visas as he sought to quiet criticism from conservatives. In a campaign speech in Des Moines, Iowa, Trump also cited the shooting death of a cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade to urge African-American voters to rally behind him, calling it an example of violence that has to be addressed. Trump, speaking on the Iowa State Fairgrounds with hay bales stacked behind him, sought to clarify his views on how to overhaul the U.S. immigration system after saying earlier in the week that he was softening on his plan to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants.

Terror fears after series of security breaches at nuclear power stations | 29 Aug 2016 | The police force charged with guarding UK nuclear power plants has admitted to a substantial increase in the number of breaches of security last year. There were 21 separate incidents involving stolen or lost smart phones and identity cards, up from 13 the previous year. In one case a Blackberry was taken in a "domestic burglary", and in another a SIM card was "accidentally thrown in disposal chute at home address." Emails containing sensitive information, including an armoury access code and personal data, were sent in breach of security protocols...The revelations uncovered by the Sunday Herald have been condemned as well as prompting alarm from campaigners and politicians.

'PsyOps to build case against Assad'

August 28, 2016 by legitgov

'PsyOps to build case against Assad' | 26 Aug 2016 | The West doesn't want to acknowledge it enabled, and sometimes directly supported, groups in Syria that use chemical weapons as a pretext to put the onus for this on the Assad government, says retired CIA and US State Department official Larry Johnson. A joint investigation by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) accuses the Syrian government of carrying out two chemical weapons attacks in the past two years, as well as ISIS for using mustard gas in one of them. RT: Commenting on the UN report, Washington said Assad must be held to account. But why did the US remain silent when so-called moderate rebels admitted carrying out a chemical attack in April this year, in Aleppo? Larry Johnson: The real problem with the chemical weapons - I call them 'so-called chemical weapons' - is that it has been almost entirely the rebels and not the government.

Federal judge won't block California's strict child vaccination law | 26 Aug 2016 | A federal judge won't immediately block a[n insane] California law that requires all schoolchildren to be vaccinated and is one of the strictest in the nation for eliminating exemptions based on religious and personal beliefs.

A lawsuit filed by 17 families and two foundations sought an injunction while the suit works its way through the courts. The law went into effect July 1 and eliminated religious and personal beliefs as reasons for opt out of the state's mandatory immunizations.

US government sent over 1.4 million guns to Iraq and Afghanistan | 24 Aug 2016 | Since the start of the so-called War on Terror, the US government has sent at least 1.4 million guns to arm Iraq and Afghan government forces, AOAV's research into US Department of Defence contracts can reveal.

Meet the 'Trumpocrats': Lifelong Democrats Breaking with Party Over Hillary Clinton to Support Donald Trump for President | 23 Aug 2016 | Meet the "Trumpocrats," or so the sizable collection of lifelong Democrats breaking with their party because of their disgust with nominee for president Hillary Rodham Clinton and supporting instead Republican nominee Donald J. Trump call themselves. Christian Rickers, the Virginia-based executive director of the Trumpocrats PAC--a Super PAC designed to help his like-minded lifelong Democrats...join the Trump movement--walked Breitbart News through why he is leading the effort among Democrats who support Trump for president. Rickers's argument centers on trade policy, and Trump's ardent opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) that Clinton supported publicly more than 40 times but now claims she opposes. He points back to Bill Clinton's backing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) from his time as president, and Rickers says Democrats everywhere should be terrified of how much further Hillary Clinton would go if she’s elected president.

Parents wary of HPV vaccination requirements, study finds | 22 Aug 2016 | Despite a renewed push by health [sic] officials to promote HPV vaccination, a new poll finds that only a minority of parents believe laws requiring the vaccines "are a good idea." Others said they were worried the vaccines can cause serious side effects or that they're a ploy for pharma sales. According to the research, 21% of parents said they support laws mandating HPV vaccination as a school-entry requirement, but that number jumped to 57% if the laws were to include "opt-out" provisions. Additionally, researchers found that 23% of the parents questioned vaccine safety and 32% said HPV shots are a sales ploy by pharma companies, ABC News reports.

Judge orders FBI to turn over terrorism task force documents | 18 Aug 2016 | A federal judge has ordered the Boston office of the FBI to disclose information about its Joint Terrorism Task Force in Massachusetts, including the number of agents assigned to the task force, the resources it uses, and the number of open cases it had as of 2014. The order was in response to a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts, which first requested the information nearly three years ago in a public records request under the Freedom of Information Act. US District Judge Allison D. Burroughs rejected the FBI's argument that the documents are exempt from public records laws because they would disclose law enforcement techniques and procedures.

Obama Readies Big September Push for TPP Corporate Takeover | 21 Aug 2016 | President Obama is readying one final push for approval of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the largest regional trade agreement corporate takeover ever, between the United States and 11 other Pacific Rim nations. And though the odds may be long, a presidency defined by partisan stalemate may yet secure one last legacy -- only because of Mr. Obama's delicate alliance with the Republicans [Obama's fellow corporate whores] who control Congress... Although the administration's push will begin in September, no vote on the accord will occur before the election. [Right, Obama, Paul Ryan and the other scum-bags are going to try to ram the TPP through in a lame-duck session of Congress.]

Western media's latest propaganda campaign

August 20, 2016 by legitgov

Western media's latest propaganda campaign | 20 Aug 2016 | Western media has received video and photos of propaganda from alleged "activists in Aleppo". And Western media is spreading this propaganda like wildfire. Fact: The Obama administration wants Bashar al-Assad out so that the current democratic system of government will be replaced with an Islamic one. These photos and video are faked and are propaganda...they are meant to trick you. This propaganda is designed to make you think "government forces" or "Russian air strikes" have hit civilians. This is a lie...At one point, you see a person in the background wearing a White Helmet. And there you have it - the final damning evidence that this is yet another staged propaganda video created by the notorious White Helmets. Who are the White Helmets? The White Helmets were created by a collaboration of Islamists inside the US and the UK in 2013. The White Helmet "rescue" workers shown in their propaganda photos have been filmed socializing with opposition, participating in civilian executions, waving al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh], al-Nusra and other "opposition" flags.
