High court orders Florida to overhaul death penalty decisions

January 13, 2016 by legitgov

High court orders Florida to overhaul death penalty decisions | 12 Jan 2016 | Juries, not judges, should be the ones to impose the death penalty in Florida, the U.S. Supreme Court decided on Tuesday in a ruling that will force lawmakers in Tallahassee to scramble to revamp how the state metes out sentences for murder. In an 8-1 decision, the high court ruled that the state's unique sentencing scheme in capital punishment cases -- jurors only issue "advisory" recommendations to judges -- violates the U.S. Constitution's Sixth Amendment, which guarantees the accused the right to an impartial jury trial...The Florida Supreme Court will now likely have to iron out which of 390 Death Row inmates -- there are 27 from Miami-Dade -- may be eligible for new sentences under the [Timothy] Hurst decision.

Iran expected to return 10 sailors, 2 U.S. Navy boats Wednesday | 12 Jan 2016 | Iran was holding 10 U.S. Navy sailors and their two small boats that drifted into Iranian waters after experiencing mechanical problems.

The sailors, nine men and one woman, were being held overnight at an Iranian base on Farsi Island in the Persian Gulf, and were expected to be transferred to a U.S. ship in the region on Wednesday morning local time. Officials said they believe the U.S. had spoken to one of the crew, and all 10 were fine and uninjured. Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told The Associated Press that the Riverine boats were moving between Kuwait and Bahrain when the U.S. lost contact with them.

Quinnipiac poll: Sanders surges to retake lead in Iowa | 12 Jan 2016 | Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton in a major Iowa poll for the first time since September, the latest sign the Democratic primary race is tightening between the two candidates.

Obama expected to push Congress to pass TPP corporate takeover | 12 Jan 2016 | Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) is sounding a cautious tone about the Asia-Pacific trade deal's chances in Congress. The House Ways and Means Committee chairman said that passing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement between the United States and 11 other nations "is difficult but doable" during a Politico Morning Money event Monday evening...The president faces widespread opposition from his own party and will have to rely on Republicans to push the deal through Congress. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), who is opposed to the TPP, joined a group of Democrats, labor and environmental groups ahead of the State of the Union to reiterate her stance.

January 11, 2016 by legitgov

In 2016, let's hope for better trade agreements - and the death of TPP | 10 Jan 2016 | The US concluded secret negotiations on what may turn out to be the worst trade agreement in decades, the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and now faces an uphill battle for ratification, as all the leading Democratic presidential candidates and many of the Republicans have weighed in against it...In particular, the ['investment'] chapter gives foreign investors the right to sue governments in private international tribunals when they believe government regulations contravene the TPP's terms (inscribed on more than 6,000 pages)...Furthermore, a "most favoured nation" provision ensures that corporations can claim the best treatment offered in any of a host country's treaties. That sets up a race to the bottom - exactly the opposite of what US President Barack Obama promised.

Experts Say Decaying Gas Lines Are a Ticking Time Bomb Below New York City Streets | 08 Jan 2016 | From the city to the suburbs, thousands of miles of some of the country's oldest and decaying gas mains lay just below the surface of our streets.

More than 100 years later the landscape has drastically changed - but some of those exact same mains are still delivering our gas today.

Exit the race now, scum-bag: Ben Carson's bumbling humiliation of 5th-grader: Too painful to be called a gaffe | 08 Jan 2016 | Somehow, the word "gaffe" doesn't quite describe Ben Carson's latest foot-in-mouth moment.

By a man who wants to be president..."Anybody here in fifth grade?" Carson said. "Who's the worst student?"
