August 21, 2016 by legitgov

Yemen's ex-president says could work with Russia to 'fight terrorism' | 21 Aug 2016 | A newly-formed governing council in Yemen could work with Russia to "fight terrorism" by allowing Moscow use of the war-torn country's military bases, Yemen's former president said on Sunday. Ali Abdullah Saleh, a former counter-terrorism ally of the U.S. who was toppled by mass protests in 2011, told state-owned channel Russia 24 that Yemen was ready to grant Moscow access to air and naval bases. "In the fight against terrorism we reach out and offer all facilities. Our airports, our ports...We are ready to provide this to the Russian Federation," Saleh said in an interview in Sanaa.

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.

YouTube: Take down horrifying video of hunter slaughtering bear with a spear

August 20, 2016 by legitgov

Every CLGer, please sign: YouTube: Take down horrifying video of hunter slaughtering bear with a spear --Bowmar also glorifies his use of a spear, which animal experts say can leave a bear suffering for up to 20 hours while it escapes and slowly bleeds to death. | 20 Aug 2016 | American hunter sociopath Josh Bowmar is featured in a horrifying 13-minute video just released on YouTube showing him killing a black bear with a homemade spear...He cheers with joy. He lifts the bear up to show its organs spilling out. This is not a video of a hunt. It's a disturbing celebration of animal cruelty. YouTube should immediately take it down and suspend Bowmar's account. Any video showing animal slaughter is disturbing, but Bowmar's video goes beyond celebrating a "sport". Even hunters are calling the video disgusting and lacks any respect for the life he takes.

August 20, 2016 by legitgov

Insane in the membrane: 29,000 defense contractors outnumber U.S. troops in Afghanistan 3-to-1 - report | 17 Aug 2016 | Defense [sic] Department contractors in Afghanistan still outnumber U.S. troops by a 3-to-1 margin according to new research released this week, raising questions again about the role those workers play in the ongoing wars overseas and the oversight they receive. The data, compiled by the Congressional Research Service and first reported by Politico, shows contractor numbers in both Iraq and Afghanistan dating back to fiscal 2007. Combined, the Defense Department spent more than $220 billion on contractors in both war zones for a variety of services and support...The latest figures available, for the first few months of 2016, show nearly 29,000 defense contractors still in Afghanistan, with fewer than 9,000 U.S. troops stationed there.

"You're going to rebuild," Trump told him as the two hugged. "It's going to be so beautiful."

Bulk data collection by British spy agencies vital to prevent terrorism in UK, report finds | 19 Aug 2016 | The bulk collection of personal data by British spy agencies is vital in preventing terrorist attacks, an independent review of draft security legislation has found. David Anderson QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, concluded that laws giving MI5, MI6 and GCHQ the right to gather large volumes of data from members of the public had a "clear operational purpose". The main findings were welcomed by the prime minister, Theresa May, but have prompted concern from Labour and privacy campaigners.

From this guide, parents and communities will understand how to see through the simplistic messaging maneuvers and counter the ongoing public PSYOP.

The suggestions are based on psychological research on persuasion, on research in public health, communication studies and on WHO risk communication guidelines."

US-funded pandemics: UN says it was involved in introducing cholera to Haiti | 19 Aug 2016 | The United Nations is saying for the first time that it was involved in the introduction of cholera to Haiti and needs to do "much more" to end the suffering of those affected, estimated at more than 800,000 people. Researchers say there is ample evidence that cholera was [purposefully?] introduced to Haiti's biggest river in October 2010 by inadequately treated sewage from a U.N. peacekeeping base. The United Nations has never accepted responsibility, and has answered lawsuits on behalf of victims in U.S. courts by claiming diplomatic immunity.

Police discredit Ryan Lochte's robbery story, say swimmers owe Rio an apology | 18 Aug 2016 | Brazilian police Thursday accused swimming star Ryan Lochte of fabricating his story of being held up along with three of his U.S. Olympic teammates by armed assailants.

The police statement contradicting Lochte's account, along with the decision by Brazilian authorities to prevent his three fellow swimmers from leaving the country, threatened to overshadow the Rio Games and what has been a stellar performance by U.S. athletes..."No robbery was committed against these athletes," Fernando Veloso, chief of the Rio de Janeiro police investigative division, said during a packed news conference Thursday afternoon.

"I have done that, and I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues."

Hillary Clinton Picks TPP and Fracking Advocate to Set Up Her White House

August 18, 2016 by legitgov

Hillary Clinton Picks TPP and Fracking Advocate to Set Up Her White House | 16 Aug 2016 | Two big issues dogged Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary: the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement (TPP) and fracking...In two of the most significant personnel moves she will ever make, she has signaled a lack of sincerity. She chose as her vice presidential running mate Tim Kaine, who voted to authorize fast-track powers for the TPP and praised the agreement just two days before he was chosen. And now she has named former Colorado Democratic Senator and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to be the chair of her presidential transition team -- the group tasked with helping set up the new administration should she win in November...As a senator, Salazar was widely considered a reliable friend to the oil, gas, ranching and mining industries. As interior secretary, he opened the Arctic Ocean for oil drilling, and oversaw the botched response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Since returning to the private sector, he has been an ardent supporter of the TPP, while pushing back against curbs on fracking.

Fed by strong winds, bone-dry brush and 100-degree temperatures, the Blue Cut fire marched across hills, canyons and flatlands into the night as firefighters struggled to get a handle on a blaze they fear will get worse. The fire closed Interstate 15 and Highway 138 -- the two key routes in the area -- clogging traffic and making it more difficult for residents to evacuate.

August 17, 2016 by legitgov

'Minor' radiation leak in New York's FitzPatrick nuclear plant has gone unfixed for 4 years | 16 Aug 2016 | (Scriba, NY) The owner of FitzPatrick nuclear plant [Entergy Corp.] has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area of the facility for at least four years, a safety violation that poses no risk to the public but might make it more difficult to decontaminate the site after the reactor closes. The problem was cited in the most recent quarterly inspection report by federal safety regulators. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory [sic] Commission said the accumulation of spilled radioactive waste in the basement of a building at FitzPatrick is of "very low safety significance'' [!?!] because it occurred in a locked, highly shielded area that is already highly radioactive.

U.S. advisers urged their allies on the ground to consider other options, but the forces stuck to their plan to give the militants safe passage, the official said. Army Col. Chris Garver, a military spokesman in Baghdad...said the decision not to bomb the [ISIS] convoy was made by the U.S.-backed forces in Manbij. [Of course. Gotta protect I-CIA-SIS.]

In Saudi-led coalition war crime, air strike on MSF hospital in Yemen kills at least 11 - aid group

August 16, 2016 by legitgov

The Saudi beheading sociopaths, aka ISIS on steroids: In Saudi-led coalition war crime, air strike on MSF hospital in Yemen kills at least 11 - aid group | 15 Aug 2016 | A Saudi-led coalition air strike hit a hospital operated by Medecins Sans Frontieres in northern Yemen on Monday, killing at least 11 people and wounding 19, the aid group said. A Reuters witness at the scene of the attack in the Abs district of Hajja province said medics could not immediately evacuate the wounded because war planes continued to fly over the area and emergency workers feared more bombings. "The location of the hospital was well known, and the hospital's GPS coordinates were repeatedly shared with all parties to the conflict, including the Saudi-led coalition," the aid group also known as Doctors Without Borders, said in a statement. It said one of its staff members was among those killed when an aerial bomb hit the hospital compound, also killing 10 patients. "This is the fourth attack against an MSF facility in less than 12 months," the statement said.

Vaccine quackery bombshell: Key studies cited to 'prove' vaccines are safe were funded almost entirely by vaccine manufacturers

August 15, 2016 by legitgov

Vaccine quackery bombshell: Key studies cited to 'prove' vaccines are safe were funded almost entirely by vaccine manufacturers | 09 Aug 2016 | In this critical review of the scientific literature on vaccines, ANH-USA and Brian Hooker carefully scrutinize the gross scientific flaws and blatant financial conflicts of interests that undermine the most commonly cited scientific studies which "prove" vaccines don't cause autism. In a startling percentage of these studies, the "scientists" were either directly funded by vaccine manufacturers who stood to profit from vaccine safety whitewashing or served as highly paid expert witnesses to defend vaccine makers against lawsuits. What we really see in this critical review is a systemic pattern of scientific fraud, criminal corruption and the complete abandonment of research ethics in the relentless quest to "prove" vaccines are safe (and thereby sell more of them to more vaccine victims).
