Florida Gov. Rick Scott signs gun bill | 09 March 2018 | Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 7026 into law Friday, the first gun control legislation enacted in the state after the Parkland school massacre on February 14.

7 Years on, Sailors Exposed to Fukushima Radiation Seek Their Day in Court --Special investigation: US military personnel are sick and dying, and want the nuclear plant's designers and owners to take responsibility. | 09 March 2018 | ...There are currently 99 operating civilian nuclear reactors in the United States, and 22 of those are General Electric Mark 1 boiling-water reactors--the make and model identical to the three that melted down and exploded at Fukushima Daiichi. Based on a 1955 design, all but four of the US reactors have now been online for more than 40 years. All of them have the same too-small primary containment vessel, the same questionable alloys, the same bolted-on lid, the same safety systems, and (with one exception) the same vent "upgrade" that failed to prevent the tragic failures at the Japanese nuclear plant. Large US cities, such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, are all closer to BWRs than Tokyo is to Fukushima Daiichi.

Two 'heroic' SWAT team members are suspended without pay for disobeying orders and responding to Florida high school massacre while 'cowardly' deputies cowered outside
Two 'heroic' SWAT team members are suspended without pay for disobeying orders and responding to Florida high school massacre while 'cowardly' deputies cowered outside | 09 March 2018 | Two Florida SWAT team members have been suspended after responding to the Florida massacre without their bosses' permission. Detectives Jeffrey Gilbert and Carl Schlosser - as identified by the Florida Sun-Sentinel - did not tell superiors that they were going to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where mass shooter Nikolas Cruz, 19, [allegedly] killed 17 people. After they jumped into action without following protocol, the two were suspended from the Miramar Police Department's 'privileged program' on February 22 and were ordered to surrender their SWAT-issued rifles. [This is what happens when to you try to halt a (possible) false flag, already in progress. The Parkland shooting is looking like it was a LIHOP (Let It Happen On Purpose) or a MIHOP (Make It Happen On Purpose). --LRP]

Google confirms its drone tech is used by Pentagon | 07 March 2018 | Google has confirmed that its technology is being used by the Pentagon to analyse footage captured by drones. A program called Project Maven is utilising the technology to automate the analysis of objects in the enormous amount of images that are captured by the Department of Defence's surveillance drones - also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). There have been almost 30,000 coalition strikes against targets in Iraq and Syria since the US-led intervention in 2014, the intelligence behind many of which is developed by analysis of UAV surveillance footage.

School Safety Administrator Discusses Disturbing Evidence in Parkland School Shooting | 07 March 2018 | Wolfgang Halbig, a retired Florida State school administrator and safety expert who researched the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012 and concluded it was a "contrived event," turns his investigative skills to the shooting at Parkland high school. Halbig wrote the school safety plan for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School high school in 2006, and says that the Parkland shooting follows the same script as the Sandy Hook event: There were no trauma helicopters called in, paramedics were not allowed into the school, and it is unknown who declared the victims dead. Halbig discusses in great detail numerous examples of how school administrators and police violated well known safety protocols, the effect of which was to put children and teachers into high risk of being killed -- all in violation of established safety protocols.

'US aid ends up with extremists': Analysts alarmed over Pentagon's 60,000-strong Syrian rebel force | 07 March 2018 | Analysts have warned that US-supported groups in Syria often defect to extremists with their weapons. That's after it was revealed the Pentagon plans to spend around $300 million to train and equip a 60,000-strong army in Syria. Commenting on the Pentagon's plans to build, train and equip a massive 'Vetted Syrian Opposition' to 'fight' Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS [but still I-CIA-SIS]) in Syria, a number of US-based experts told RT the move has nothing to do with combatting terrorism. Instead, US weapons and aid could easily land in the hands of Islamist extremists, as has often been seen in the past.
Dept. of Justice sues California over 'interference' with immigration enforcement | 06 March 2018 | The Trump Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday night against California, saying three recently-passed state laws were deliberately interfering with federal immigration policies. It marked the latest legal and political confrontation with the nation's most populous state, which the federal government says has repeatedly stood in the way of its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and illegal individuals. "The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies," Attorney General Jeff Sessions was expected to tell California law enforcement officers on Wednesday.

Trey Gowdy on Tuesday demanded the appointment of a special counsel to investigate "conflicts of interest" and decisions "made and not made" by current and former Justice Department officials in 2016 and 2017, noting that "the public interest requires" the action. Gowdy, R-S.C., and Goodlatte, R-Va., penned a letter Tuesday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Get ready for Winter Storm Quinn! East coast will get up to TWO FEET of snow and rain with 50mph gusts of wind | 06 March 2018 | Don't put away your winter coats just yet. A complex winter storm system is threatening to dump up to two feet of snow on the east coast, which is still struggling to recover from the weekend's Nor'easter three days later. Winter storm Quinn started brewing in the western mountains and northern Plains, and will fizzle there, over the eastern Great Lakes and in the central Appalachians through Tuesday and overnight. But it is expected to then strengthen once it hits the east coast early Wednesday and into Thursday.

Colbert made the comments just hours after Nunberg gave multiple interviews about his plans to defy Mueller's subpoena to appear before the grand jury this week as a part of the ongoing Russia investigation.
In reversal, former Trump aide says he'll probably cooperate | 06 March 2018 | A former Trump campaign aide spent much of the day promising to defy a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller, even throwing down the challenge to "arrest me," then backed off his defiance by saying he would probably cooperate in the end. In an interview Monday night with The Associated Press, Sam Nunberg said he was angry over Mueller's request to have him appear in front of a grand jury and turn over thousands of emails and other communications with other ex-officials...But he predicted that, in the end, he'd find a way to comply. It was a reversal from his tone throughout the day, when he lashed out at Trump and his campaign and threatened to defy Mueller in a series of interviews.
