September 28, 2016 by legitgov

Protesters chant 'murder' in police shooting of black man in California | 28 Sept 2016 | Protesters yelled "murder" and demanded a federal investigation on Wednesday after a police officer in southern California shot and killed an unarmed black man, less than two weeks after similar incidents sparked outrage in two other U.S. cities. In the latest shooting, two officers responded to calls about an African-American man in his 30s walking in traffic and "not acting like himself," according to police in El Cajon, a city of about 100,000 residents some 15 miles (24 km) northeast of San Diego.

Senate votes 97 to 1 to override Obama's 9/11 bill veto

September 28, 2016 by legitgov

Senate votes 97 to 1 to override Obama's 9/11 bill veto --Vote is first override of Saudi-influenced Obama administration --Useless eater Harry Reid is only 'no' vote | 28 Sept 2016 | The US Senate voted to override President Barack Obama's veto of the bill that would allow Americans to potentially sue Saudi Arabia for 9/11. This is the first veto override during the Obama presidency. Obama vetoed the bill last week, explaining that the "Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act" (JASTA) would erode the doctrine of sovereign immunity and expose the US to lawsuits around the world. JASTA, which passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate, allows US judges to waive sovereign immunity claims when dealing with acts of terrorism committed on American soil - potentially allowing lawsuits against Saudi Arabia over the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. [Odd how Obama doesn't give a damn about 'US sovereignty' while pimping his TPP corporate takeover.]

DailyMail.com has asked the Clinton campaign whether they knew about the accusations, which do not appear to have ended in conviction, before the candidate spoke about her at the debate.

Senators Press FBI Director on Response to Terrorism Threat

September 28, 2016 by legitgov

Senators Press FBI Director on Response to Terrorism Threat | 27 Sept 2016 | Republican senators pressed FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday about whether anything more could have been done to prevent recent acts of extremist violence, including the Orlando nightclub massacre and the Manhattan bombing this month...The questions arose because the FBI has said it investigated Orlando gunman Omar Mateen a few years before the June shooting and interviewed him as part of that probe. The FBI in 2014 also looked into Ahmad Khan Rahami, the Afghan-born U.S. citizen accused in the explosion, but found nothing that tied him to terrorism. Two senators, in particular, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, said they were alarmed that both individuals had at one point been on the FBI's radar but were [allegedly] not intercepted.

ISIS may strike Europe with car bomb and chemical attacks, warns EU counter-terrorism chief | 27 Sept 2016 | Acknowledging that the terrorist threat in the EU has reached its peak in the last two decades, the EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator warned the bloc's lawmakers that Europe could face new ISIS-coordinated attacks, possibly even involving chemical weapons.

Mayors say state ordered them to keep Zika mosquito sites secret | 25 Sept 2016 | The mayors of Miami-Dade County and Miami Beach on Sunday accused the Florida Department of Health of lying after the state agency said last week that it never told local officials to hide the locations in Miami Beach where mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus were captured.
