October 29, 2016 by legitgov

Clinton mentions little about longest held job: corporate lawyer | 29 Oct 2016 | Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has campaigned on a largely populist message about helping the underclass in which she and surrogates frequently refer to her post-law school job working for the Children's Defense Fund. However, Clinton later worked for 15 years as a corporate litigator at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas's capital, longer than any other position in or out of government. One of her first assignments as a corporate lawyer, in fact, landed her far from her roots. She helped overturn a ballot measure that increased electric rates for businesses and lowered them for the poor, according to The Wall Street Journal.

US may 'navigate and direct' ISIS terrorists from Mosul into Syria - Assad aide | 29 Oct 2016 | The way the US-led coalition is conducting its Mosul siege suggests Washington might be planning to "navigate" Islamic State terrorists into Syria in accordance with its longstanding strategy for the region, President Assad's media adviser told RT. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL [but still I-CIA-SIS]) terrorists potentially fleeing from Mosul into Syria would become a "huge danger to our sovereignty, to our country," Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban said. "Russia and Syria are looking at this issue extremely seriously. We're not going to sit and watch...The way they encircle Mosul shows they would like these terrorists to move into to Syria..."

Britain has foiled 10 terror attacks in two years, say police | 28 Oct 2016 | Britain's security services and counter-terrorism units have foiled at least 10 attacks in the past two years, it has been revealed.

The official threat level for international terrorism in the UK is severe, meaning an attack is highly likely.

2006 Audio Emerges of Hillary Clinton Proposing Rigging Palestine Election --Unearthed tape: 'We should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win' | 28 Oct 2016 | On September 5, 2006, Eli Chomsky was an editor and staff writer for the Jewish Press, and Hillary Clinton was running for a shoo-in re-election as a U.S. senator...A seemingly throwaway remark about elections in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority has taken on new relevance amid persistent accusations in the presidential campaign by Clinton's Republican opponent Donald Trump that the current election is "rigged." Speaking to the Jewish Press about the January 25, 2006, election for the second Palestinian Legislative Council (the legislature of the Palestinian National Authority), Clinton weighed in about the result, which was a resounding victory for Hamas (74 seats) over the U.S.-preferred Fatah (45 seats). "I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake," said Sen. Clinton. "And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win."

The bear, named Pizza, attracted the attention of international news media after Hong Kong-based Animals Asia posted a video on its website in July that showed visitors at the Guangzhou mall taking photos of her as she lay on her side in the blue-themed enclosure. The group called Pizza "the tragic bear that suffers for selfies". Humane Society International (HSI) on Tuesday released a video of Pizza, which it said showed "worrying stereotypical behaviors such as head swaying and repetitive pacing, evidence of frustration and mental decline."

October 28, 2016 by legitgov

Elite College Professor Calls Academia a Mad House and 'Safe Spaces' an Existential Error | 27 Oct 2016 | A professor at prestigious New York University has started his own war against so-called social justice warriors, claiming that the current politically correct culture of trigger warnings, safe spaces and bias reporting have fomented a culture of hyper-protectionism, hyper-vigilance and self-surveillance. Michael Rectenwald, a liberal studies professor at the NYU [CLG Founder], is the man behind the undercover Twitter account DeplorableNYUProf, which claims to "expose the viral identity politics of academia and its destruction of academic integrity." Rectenwald uses his "Deplorable" account to express his frustration with current PC culture on campus. In an interview with Heat Street, Rectenwald explained his motivations, claiming that "current academia is like an infirmary or a hospital where everybody is potentially a sick patient who needs to be secured, protected and quarantined from anything that might be deemed challenging."

US-led coalition killed 300 Syrian civilians in 11 probed strikes - Amnesty | 26 Oct 2016 | Around 300 civilians were killed in eleven airstrikes conducted by the US-led coalition in Syria, which Amnesty International investigated for its latest report.

"We fear the US-led coalition is significantly underestimating the harm caused to civilians in its operations in Syria," said Lynn Maalouf, Deputy Director for Research at Amnesty International's Beirut regional office.

Obamacare Benchmark Premiums to Rise 25% in Sharpest Jump Yet | 24 Oct 2016 | Premiums for mid-level Obamacare health plans sold on the federal exchanges will see their biggest jump yet next year, another speed bump in the administration’s push for enrollment in the final months of the U.S. president’s term.

Individuals signing up for plans this year are facing not only rising premiums, but also fewer options to choose from after several big insurers pulled out from some of the markets created under the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

October 25, 2016 by legitgov

NYU prof attacks 'viral identity politics of academia' | 24 Oct 2016 | New York University professor has started an undercover Twitter account to attack SJW culture from within, explaining that the hypersensitivity of the left has produced the alt-right "by virtue of its insanity." NYU professor [CLG Founder] Michael Rectenwald recently revealed in an interview with Washington Square News that he is the man behind an anonymous Twitter account known as "Deplorable NYU Prof," which claims to expose "the viral identity politics of academia and its destruction of academic integrity." ..."My contention is that trigger warnings, safe spaces, and bias hotline reporting is not politically correct. It is insane," he explained. "This stuff is producing a culture of hypervigilance, self-surveillance, and panopticism." Now, in an interview with Campus Reform, Rectenwald has expanded on his motivation to take on the "SJW left," noting that his own experience in the classroom has shown him that colleges have "become a minefield or a field of eggshells."

Michael Rectenwald: My contention is that this particular social-justice-warrior-left is producing the alt-right by virtue of its insanity. And because it’s doing all these things that manifest to the world, the alt-right is just eating this stuff alive.

Some Trump Voters Won't Vote Republican Down Ballot to Send Message to Establishment - Luntz | 23 Oct 2016 | JOHN DICKERSON, FACE THE NATION: And we turn now to Republican consultant and CBS News contributor Frank Luntz, who is coming to us from Chicago this morning...LUNTZ: Well, I have been to 26 states now. I will probably make it to 30 before the election is over. And it means that there is no coming together. And I think it's going to be very challenging for the GOP, because you have got some Trump voters who are unwilling to vote for a Republican for Senate or Congress as a way to send a message to the establishment, and you have got some independents who want to vote Republican for the Senate and the House, but won't because they’re too connected to Donald Trump.
