August 18, 2016 by legitgov

Trump hires 'street fighter' in new shakeup of White House campaign | 17 Aug 2016 | U.S. Republican Donald Trump overhauled his presidential campaign team on Wednesday for the second time in less than two months, hiring the head of a conservative news website to bolster his combative image and try to reverse poor opinion poll numbers. Trump named Steve Bannon, head of the Breitbart News website, as campaign chief executive officer, a new position. He also promoted senior adviser Kellyanne Conway to the post of campaign manager.

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.

Buildings burn, residents flee as out-of-control brush fire burns 18,000 acres in Cajon Pass | 16 Aug 2016 | A brush fire exploded out of control Tuesday in the Cajon Pass, scorching 18,000 acres as walls of flame forced more than 80,000 people to evacuate and destroyed an unknown number of homes in several rural San Bernardino County communities. 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.

'Minor' radiation leak in New York's FitzPatrick nuclear plant has gone unfixed for 4 years

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.

August 17, 2016 by legitgov

U.S.-backed Syrian forces gave defeated ISIS fighters safe passage | 16 Aug 2016 | Islamic State fighters surrounded during the key battle for Manbij, Syria, last week agreed to surrender their weapons to U.S.-backed Syrian forces in return for safe passage out of the embattled city, a senior defense official said Tuesday. It was the first such agreement with the terror group...U.S. advisers who support the Syrian Democratic [sic] Forces knew of the deal and agreed not to target the [ISIS] convoy with airstrikes as it left the city, according to the defense official. 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.]

More than 120 Republicans tell RNC to cut off funds to Donald Trump | 16 Aug 2016 | A letter that urges the Republican National Committee to cut off funds to Donald Trump has collected more than 120 signatures from current and former elected officials [TPP-pimps, globalist dirt-bags, and sociopaths], according to the final version obtained by CBS News. The letter, which will be delivered to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Tuesday, includes two sitting members of Congress and 27 former RNC staffers, among many others. "...[W]e urge you to immediately suspend all discretionary RNC support for Trump and focus the entirety of the RNC's available resources on preserving the GOP's congressional majorities," says the letter, whose draft CBS reported on last week when there were already 70 signatures.

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).

Pentagon Audit: Documentation for $6.5 Trillion Worth of Year-End Army Fund Adjustments 'Can't Be Found'

August 14, 2016 by legitgov

Pentagon Audit: Documentation for $6.5 Trillion Worth of Year-End Army Fund Adjustments 'Can't Be Found' | 31 July 2016 | The Defense Department over the years has been notorious for its lax accounting practices. The Pentagon has never completed an audit of how they actually spend the trillions of dollars on wars, equipment, personnel, housing, healthcare and procurements. A Department of Defense inspector general's report released last week offered a jaw-dropping insight into just how bad the military's auditing system is. The Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the behemoth Indianapolis-based agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, could not provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments to Army general fund transactions and data. [Gee, the last time we learned a whole bunch of money ($2.3 trillion) went missing from the Pentagon (September 10, 2001), the dirt-bags distracted us with the 9/11 inside job. --LRP]

Princeton professor shows how easy it is to hack an election in just 7 minutes | 08 Aug 2016 | A professor from Princeton University and a graduate student just proved electronic voting machines in the U.S. remain astonishingly vulnerable to hackers -- and they did it in under eight minutes. In fact, Professor Andrew Appel and grad student Alex Halderman took just seven minutes to break into the authentic Sequoia AVC Advantage electronic voting machine Appel purchased for $82 online -- one of the oldest models, but still in use Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia, Politico reported. After Halderman picked the hulking, 250-pound machine's lock in seven seconds flat, Appel wrested its four ROM chips from a circuit board -- an easy feat, considering the chips weren't soldered in place.

DOJ: Baltimore Police Department engages in discriminatory practices

DOJ: Baltimore Police Department engages in discriminatory practices | 11 Aug 2016 | The Baltimore Police Department (BPD) has engaged in tactics that violate the First and Fourth Amendments and numerous anti-discrimination laws, according to a report released by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) on Wednesday. The report is centered on the use of excessive force and illegal stops, seizures and searches, especially within the African-American community. Most at fault for the systemic discrimination against African-American citizens, the DOJ said, are "deficient policies, training and accountability systems," including the "zero-tolerance" street enforcement. A variety of statistics were used to highlight the problem within the Baltimore, among which was a finding by the DOJ that African Americans accounted for over 80 percent of all BPD vehicle stops, despite white individuals being found with contraband twice as often.

US energy chief makes bold claim for storage technology | Aug 2016 | The US energy secretary, Ernest Moniz, believes the advances being made in storage technology means that the country will be completely decarbonised by the 2050s. A global race, seen initially in Europe and the US is leading to a rapid acceleration in innovation that may dispense with the need for nuclear and thermal power by that time according to the technology's backers, as the Achilles heel of intermittency will no longer impact on the overall effectiveness of renewables.
