July 2, 2014 by legitgov

Putin to West: Stop turning world into 'global barracks,' dictating rules to others 01 Jul 2014 Russia's president has blamed the turmoil in Ukraine on the country's newly-elected leader Petro Poroshenko. Vladimir Putin also criticized the West for its intention to turn the planet into a "global barracks." Russia's president has laid the blame for the ongoing turmoil between Kiev and south-eastern regions squarely at the feet of Petro Poroshenko, after the Ukrainian leader terminated the ceasefire. He has stressed that Russia and European partners could not convince Poroshenko to not take the path of violence, which can't lead to peace.

Controversial scientist recreates H1N1 flu virus that killed 500,000 people...but his version is RESISTANT to vaccine 01 Jul 2014 A controversial researcher who in the past had replicated the deadly Spanish flu of 1918 has done it again, this time cooking up in his lab an especially resilient strain of the H1N1 virus. Dr Yoshihiro Kawaoka, professor of virology at University of Wisconsin at Madison, has reportedly tweaked the 2009 strain of pandemic influenza responsible for some 500,000 deaths worldwide to make it resistant the human immune system's antibodies. Kawaoka's many critics have said that his latest provocative experiment has essentially rendered the world's population defenseless against the virus.

July 1, 2014 by legitgov

New York towns can prohibit fracking, state appeals court rules 30 Jun 2014 Opponents of hydraulic fracturing celebrated a major victory over the oil and gas industry on Monday after the highest court in New York state agreed that cities and towns can prohibit drilling within their boundaries. In a 5-2 ruling, the New York state court of appeals affirmed previous court decisions that two towns in upstate New York - Dryden and Middlefield - had the authority to use zoning ordinances to control land use, effectively banning hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking. Drillers and landowners that brought the suits against the towns argued that state law prohibited them from blocking fracking.

The figure might not indicate the actual number of people targeted by the NSA.

July 1, 2014 by legitgov

Israel vows to make Hamas pay for alleged murder of three teenagers --Roundup of suspects brings rocket attack from Gaza and Israeli air strikes in return while Palestinian teenager shot dead in Jenin 30 Jun 2014 Israel has vowed to make Hamas pay for the murder of three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, but the Islamist movement warned any reprisal attacks would open "the gates of hell". Hamas, which had denied any involvement in the abduction of the teenage boys, issued a warning in return to the Israelis. "If the occupiers carry out an escalation or a war, they will open the gates of hell on themselves," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told AFP. Two Hebron Hamas men named by Israel as prime suspects - Marwan Qawasmeh and Amer Abu Eishe – remain at large but Palestinian witnesses said troops blew up their homes early on Tuesday.

MH370 report: Malaysia Airlines only attempted to contact missing plane twice over six hours

July 1, 2014 by legitgov

MH370 report: Malaysia Airlines only attempted to contact missing plane twice over six hours 30 Jun 2014 Malaysia Airlines only twice attempted to make phone contact with its unresponsive airliner over six hours as it flew to its doom, causing vital clues to its final location to be lost and painting a woeful picture of air safety in the region. The revelations come out of close examination of an Australian Transport Safety Bureau report into MH370's disappearance, released on Thursday. The report also shows that no one in the cockpit used aircraft waypoints to set course south over the Indian Ocean, ruling out suspicion that pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah had pre-programmed the Boeing 777 to crash. But this did not eliminate suspicion that someone used the automatic pilot to send the plane on a southerly heading.

July 1, 2014 by legitgov

Israel finds bodies of three missing teenagers in West Bank 01 Jul 2014 The bodies of three missing Israeli teenagers were found in the occupied West Bank, and Israel vowed to punish Hamas, the Palestinian group it [possibly, falsely] accuses of abducting and killing them. "They were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by beasts," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement after the military discovered on Monday the remains of the Jewish seminary students who disappeared on June 12. Hamas has been rocked by the arrest of dozens of its activists in an Israeli military sweep in the West Bank over the past three weeks during a search for the teenagers that Israel said was also aimed at weakening the militant movement. Up to six Palestinians died as a result of the Israeli operation, local residents said.

Hobby Lobby's Hypocrisy

July 1, 2014 by legitgov

Hobby Lobby's Hypocrisy --How can the arts and crafts chain espouse Christian values when it imports products from China? 26 Mar 2014 ...Hobby Lobby imports billions of dollars of products from China...Forced abortion, although technically frowned upon by the government, is still a regular practice in China. Is the disruption of creation of life only relevant as a Christian when it's an American life? And what about the factories those people work at in China, those factories that make the products Hobby Lobby buys and then sells. The people of China who work in factories are exposed to a variety of dangerous working conditions...And how about the children of China? Child abuse is on the rise, and no one in the government is doing a thing about it.

Obama to take executive action on immigration

Obama to take executive action on immigration -- Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Attorney General Eric Holder directed work with Obama on issue 30 Jun 2014 It's their fault, President Barack Obama said Monday in blaming Republican inaction on immigration reform for escalating problems including a surge of undocumented children crossing the border from Mexico. At a hastily scheduled Rose Garden appearance, Obama said the top House Republican -- Speaker John Boehner -- told him last week that the chamber's GOP majority will continue blocking a vote on a Senate-passed immigration bill. In response, Obama said he was starting "a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress."

300 more U.S. troops headed to Iraq; total personnel deployed at 800 30 Jun 2014 The U.S. is sending another 300 troops to Iraq to beef up security at the U.S. Embassy and elsewhere in the Baghdad area to protect U.S. citizens and property [yes, especially the oil refineries], officials said Monday. The new injection of manpower brings the total number of U.S. personnel sent to Iraq to deal with the recent crisis to approximately 800. The White House announced that President Barack Obama, who has previously ruled out sending combat troops back into Iraq, had directed that 200 troops be sent to reinforce security at the embassy, its support facilities and Baghdad International Airport.

Supreme Court Deals Public Unions a Blow

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

Supreme Court Deals Public Unions a Blow --The decision, written by Justice [sic] Samuel Alito, marks a loss for public sector unions. 30 Jun 2014 The Supreme Court decided Monday that public sector unions cannot collect "fair share" fees from non-union-members, in a 5-4 decision that dealt unions a sharp blow. The decision also marks a victory for the anti-union group, National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, which is backed by many hardline conservatives, including the Koch family. Representing the plaintiff, the Legal Defense Foundation argued that requiring non-union-members to pay some "fair share" union fees was the same as requiring them to pay to support "political or ideological ends." Their argument hinged on the idea that, in this day and age, any involvement with a union is inherently "political or ideological."

Hobby Lobby ruling: firms can refuse to provide contraception coverage

Hobby Lobby ruling: firms can refuse to provide contraception coverage --'Justices' side with Hobby Lobby and rule companies can claim religious exemption from Obamacare birth control mandate 30 Jun 2014 Conservatives celebrated a victory over Obamacare on Monday after the supreme court ruled that some companies should be allowed a religious exemption from rules requiring them to include all forms of contraception in employee health policies. In a judgment with significant implications for the legal rights of corporations, a narrow majority of five justices argued that "closely held" businesses such as the family-run Hobby Lobby chain of stores, which brought the test case, enjoyed the same religious protections under law as individuals. Hobby Lobby's Christian owners and others like them will now be free to remove four controversial contraception methods from insurance plans provided to their 13,000 staff, claiming they amount to a form of abortion because they take effect after the point of fertilisation.

Health Law Violates Corporate Religious Liberty, Supreme Court Says

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

Health Law Violates Corporate Religious Liberty, Supreme Court Says 30 Jun 2014 The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that requiring family-owned corporations to pay for insurance coverage for contraception under the Affordable Care Act violated a federal law protecting religious freedom. The 5-to-4 decision, which applied to two companies owned by Christian families, opened the door to challenges from other corporations to many laws that may be said to violate their religious liberty. Justice [sic] Samuel A. Alito Jr., writing for the court's five more conservative justices, said a federal religious-freedom law applied to for-profit corporations controlled by religious families. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing for the court's four-member liberal wing, said the contraception coverage requirement was vital to women’s health and reproductive freedom.

Before Nisour Square Massacre, an Inquiry Into Blackwater Was Dropped After Firm's Top Manager Issued Threat

June 30, 2014 by legitgov

Before Nisour Square Massacre, an Inquiry Into Blackwater Was Dropped After Firm's Top Manager Issued Threat 29 Jun 2014 Just weeks before Blackwater guards fatally shot 17 civilians at Baghdad's Nisour Square in 2007, the State Department began investigating the security contractor's operations in Iraq. But the inquiry was abandoned after Blackwater's top manager there issued a threat: "that he could kill" the government's chief investigator and "no one could or would do anything about it as we were in Iraq," according to department reports. American Embassy officials in Baghdad sided with Blackwater rather than the State Department investigators as a dispute over the probe escalated in August 2007, the previously undisclosed documents show. The officials told the investigators that they had disrupted the embassy's relationship with the security contractor mercenaries and ordered them to leave the country, according to the reports.

UW-Madison pandemic flu viruses 'could escape from lab,' biosafety panelist says

UW-Madison pandemic flu viruses 'could escape from lab,' biosafety panelist says 29 Jun 2014 UW-Madison scientist Yoshihiro Kawaoka says he's creating potentially deadly flu viruses to help prevent a pandemic, but a campus biosafety panel member says the research could cause more harm than good because the viruses could escape from the lab. "You're increasing the probability of having a pandemic rather than decreasing the probability," said Tom Jeffries, a member of the university's Institutional Biosafety Committee, which reviews sensitive research...After Kawaoka reported this month that he used genes from several bird flu viruses to construct a virus similar to the 1918 pandemic flu virus that killed up to 50 million people worldwide, British and French scientists called the research "absolutely crazy" and "madness, folly."

Thousands of fracking wells in Pennsylvania 'may be leaking methane'

Thousands of fracking wells in Pennsylvania 'may be leaking methane' --Study finds abandoned wells could be bigger climate change contributor than thought, reports Climate Central 20 Jun 2014 A study of abandoned oil and gas wells in Pennsylvania finds that the hundreds of thousands of such wells in the state may be leaking methane, suggesting that abandoned wells across the country could be a bigger source of climate changing global warming greenhouse gases than previously thought. The study by Mary Kang, a Princeton University scientist, looked at 19 wells and found that these oft-forgotten wells are leaking various amounts of methane. There are hundreds of thousands of such oil and gas wells, long abandoned and plugged, in Pennsylvania alone, and countless more in oil and gas fields across the country. These wells go mostly unmonitored, and rarely, if ever, checked for such leaks.

Obama sends CIA to UK to probe terrorist 'breeding ground' --President in pointed snub to MI5 over 'lone wolf' mission to interrogate British security experts 28 Jun 2014 President Obama has sent a special unit of CIA officers to the UK to investigate British Muslim extremists amid growing fears in Washington that we are becoming a 'breeding ground' for terrorism. In a pointed snub to MI5, the agents arrived on a 'lone wolf' mission to interrogate senior security experts about the radicalisation of UK Muslims. The mission has been revealed as our security services have been forced to admit they are struggling to keep track of the estimated 500 Britons who have travelled to the Middle East to fight alongside the Islamic Isis forces in Syria and Iraq.

False alert sent to people near Calif. nuclear plant: 'Prepare for action'

June 29, 2014 by legitgov

False alert sent to people near Calif. nuclear plant: 'Prepare for action' 28 Jun 2014 People in San Luis Obispo County received a series of unsettling, erroneous emergency alerts Friday as repairs were being made to a nuclear power plant's siren system, including a vague cellphone message that told them to "prepare for action." The chain of mistaken alerts began arousing confusion and fear when a siren that's part of the Diablo Canyon Power Plant's warning system began wailing Friday afternoon for no apparent reason, county emergency services manager Ron Alsop said...To indicate there was no emergency, county officials issued an alert.

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud

June 29, 2014 by legitgov

Vaccine researcher charged with felony crimes for research fraud --May spend 20 years in prison over faked AIDS vaccine 25 Jun 2014 Scientific fraud is so common in the vaccine industry, it's practically the default business model. The truth is that most vaccines don't work, so in order to make them appear to work, researchers routinely spike blood samples of vaccinated test subjects with antibodies, making it appear the vaccine caused the body to produce those antibodies. This is exactly what Merck does with MMR vaccines, according to the company's own former virologists who filed a False Claims Act with the federal government. It's also why up to 97% of children who contract measles or mumps were already vaccinated against measles and mumps.
