HONIARA, Solomon Islands A tsunami warning has been issued for some Pacific islands following a powerful magnitude-7.6 earthquake near the Solomon Islands.

The United States Geological Service said the quake struck around 7:14 a.m. local time Sunday. Its epicenter was 323 kilometers (200 miles) southeast of Honiara, the Solomons capital, and its depth was 29.3 kilometers (18.2 miles).

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has issued a warning for the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. The center says it’s not known if the quake generated a tsunami but it was powerful enough to trigger one.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage from the temblor.

The Solomon Islands lies on the “Ring of Fire” an arc of earthquake and volcanic activity that stretches around the Pacific Rim.

The freedom and openness of the Internet are at stake after the U.S. government announced plans to end its contractual oversight of ICANN, some critics said Thursday.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administrations announcement last month that it will end its contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers to operate key domain-name functions could embolden other nations to attempt to seize control, some Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee said.

All hyperbole aside, this hearing is about nothing less than the future of the Internet and, significantly, who has the right, the ability and the authority to determine it, said Representative Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican. Should it be decided by a few people in Washington, Beijing, Moscow, Sao Paolo or even Silicon Valley or should it be determined by those who use and stand to benefit from it?

Goodlatte suggested that other countries would try to control ICANN after the U.S. ends its contract. The U.S. can rightly take credit for the freedom that exists the Internet today, he said during a hearing. When we let go of that final link, will that institution be safer from those efforts to regulate the Internet, or will it be more exposed because it no longer has the protection of the United States?

The Internet engineers, companies and civil society groups involved in ICANN wouldnt allow a government takeover of the organization, supporters of the NTIAs plan said. I cannot imagine the Internet engineers that I know agreeing to do any of the parade of horribles that people are concerned about, said Representative Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat.

Separately, the technology subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee voted Thursday to approve the Domain Openness Through Continued Oversight Matters (DOTCOM) Act, which would require a U.S. Government Accountability Office study about the effects of the transition before it happens. Members of that committee raised similar concerns in a hearing last week.

President Barack Obamas administration opposes the bill because it raises questions about the U.S. governments long-term support of a multistakeholder governance model at ICANN, said NTIA Administrator Larry Strickling.

Strickling assured Judiciary Committee members that the agency would not give up oversight of ICANN unless it is satisfied that the organization has a transition plan in place that prohibits a government takeover.

Several Republicans committee members questioned NTIAs move to end its contractual relationship with ICANN as soon as late 2015, but Strickling defended the plan, saying one of the main reasons for the change is to remove the perception in some countries that the U.S. has too much control.

While the NTIAs contract for ICANN to operate the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions is largely symbolic, the move would show the world that the U.S. supports a multistakeholder governance model at ICANN that it has advocated since 1998, Strickling said.

While Congress cowers before multinationals lobbyists and moves to re-enact loopholes that let corporations like GE and Apple hide their income from the IRS, the Maine Legislature decided it had had enough. On Friday, April 4,Maine passed legislation that will end some of the games.

I would like the Governor to sign the bill, said Rep. Adam Goode, the sponsor of the legislation. The bill is about huge multinational corporations that hide their income in off shore tax havens. Small businesses in Maine dont use these tricks. That puts Maines small businesses at a competitive disadvantage.

Governor LePage has ten days to sign the bill into law, veto it, or let it become law without his signature. According to Maine Revenue Services, closing the Waters Edge loophole will raise $10 million for every two year budget cycle.

In Maine $10 million is a lot of money, said Rep. Goode. If the Governor vetoes the bill, were sending a message that were prioritizing multinational corporations access to tax havens over kids access to head start or seniors access to prescription drugs. Those programs are routinely on the chopping block.

Companies can dodge taxes by shifting income to low-tax jurisdictions. Not only do they send the money to tax havens off shore, but they also set up companies to hide income in low tax states, such as Nevada and Delaware. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia countered stateside tax avoidance by combined reporting.

Combined reporting requires companies to report their income in all states; then the combined income is taxed in proportion to the businesss activity in their state. That way, if large amounts of income that were produced by business activity in, say Maine, but were reported for tax purposes as belonging to Delaware, it would be included in the total income pie that Maine would proportionately tax.

But if combined reporting stops at the Waters Edge, it only includes income reported within the United States. To get at offshore tax havens, the states can require worldwide combined reporting, or Waters Edge plus a list of known tax havens.

Maine, like Montana and Oregon, has taken the latter approach. Rep. Goodes bill includes a list of 38 known tax havens. Goode noted that Maine already uses combined reporting to stop corporations from hiding their money in low tax states like Delaware or Nevada. If we wont let corporations hide their money in Delaware, why would we let them hide it in the Cayman Islands or Bermuda?

The uncomfortable truth is that the entire banking system in the developed West is insolvent.This is not some wild, attention seeking headline. Rather, it is a carefully researched assertion based on fact.

Lets briefly examine the evidence in the United States, the worlds largest and most important banking system :

1. Some of the largest banks in the US (such as Citigroup, for example) have just failed their stress tests.

2. The FDICs insurance fund fails to hold anywhere near the amount that they are required by law to maintain in order to insure the US banking system.

3. The Federal Reserve is nearly insolvent. Its capital ratio now stands at just 1.35%. Lehman Brothers was at 3% when they went bankrupt.

4. The US governments net worth, i.e. all of its assets minus all of its liabilities, is NEGATIVE $17 trillion.

So you can see that in the US, you have poorly capitalized banks backed by a poorly capitalized insurance fund backed by a nearly insolvent central bank and an insolvent government. Hardly a beacon of stability.

Again, this is not some wild conjecture. This is all fact, backed by publicly available data. But its an incredibly uncomfortable conclusion for most people to stomach.

Lets face it we all grow up being told that banks are safe. It must be, after all its a bank!

Its not every day that Liechtensteins ambassador to the United States her name is Claudia Fritsche writes a letter to the Maine Legislature to weigh in on a bill.

But it happened March 4, when Fritsche urged state lawmakers to vote down L.D. 1120, a bill that would prohibit multinational corporations from using so-called offshore tax havens to avoid paying taxes in Maine.

Lawmakers also received a letter from Jean-Louis Wolzfeld, Luxembourgs ambassador to the United States, opposing the bill.

Both countries are among more than two dozen jurisdictions identified as tax havens in L.D. 1120. In their letters to the lawmakers, Fritsche and Wolzfeld explained why such a designation unfairly blacklisted the two countries and what the impact would be if the bill is enacted.

Fritsche touted Liechtensteins cooperation with the United States in fighting terrorist financing. (This was apparently a symptom of the countrys secretive banking laws until it began taking steps to improve them.) She added that Liechtenstein didnt have any investments in Maine, but L.D. 1120 could deter the prospect of future business.

John Cinque of Branford recently claimed in a Hartford Courant essay that Connecticuts gun-control laws attack his rights as a gun owner. Cinque believes gun-control advocates are on a mistaken ideological crusade.

Cinques interpretation of the Second Amendment would give him an almost unlimited right to bear arms. He quotes Marko Kloos of New Hampshire, apparently a mentor of his philosophy, as saying that people can deal with each other only by reason or by force.

Therefore if reason does not work, does one have the right to use force?

Cinque goes on to say that the people will no longer allow further encroachment on our natural rights and an armed society is a polite society.

He should try telling that to opponents of the Taliban of Afghanistan, the opposition in Iraq, and people in a myriad other locations throughout the world where innocents are being politely killed within armed societies.

The Second Amendment is clear. Even the present justices of our Supreme Court who overruled predecessor courts, which held in United States vs. Cruikshank (1876) that the right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence do not dispute that the Second Amendment requires a well regulated militia.

In another prior case, United States v. Miller (1939), the Supreme Court ruled that the federal government and the states could limit any weapon types not having a reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia.

So much for the concept of stare decisis that Judges Samuel Alito, John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, and Antonin Scalia swore to uphold when they were confirmed.

Even in the Heller case (District of Columbia v. Heller, 2008), the current court, in its controlling opinion, does not doubt that the words of the Second Amendment refer to a well regulated militia.

The exact language of the Second Amendment is this: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

A group of activists are hoping to appeal a U.S. judges ruling that treated the censorship on Chinese search engine Baidu as free speech.

In making the ruling, District Judge Jesse Furman equated the censorship to a newspaper exercising its editorial right to publish what it wants. But Stephen Preziosi, lawyer for the eight pro-democracy activists, said in an email Saturday that the comparison was wrong, and that the court had a fundamental misunderstanding of how search engines work.

The appeal is planned to be filed later this week, Preziosi wrote.

In 2011, the eight activists filed a lawsuit, claiming that Baidu violates U.S. free speech laws by censoring pro-democracy works on its search engine for users in New York.

But last Thursday, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York dismissed the lawsuit, and ruled that Baidu had the right to create a search engine that favors certain political speech over another.

Newspapers have to manage costs and spacing on the paper in selecting what they publish, but search engines operate by indexing all content on the Web, Preziosi said. In Baidus case, the company worked to proactively exclude the pro-democracy works from its search engine, he added.

This constitutes the denial of the right to freedom of speech, Preziosi said.

Baidu has declined to comment. But as a company operating in China, Baidu must follow the nations strict rules on censorship, including the blocking of content deemed inflammatory or anti-government.

As Baidu can also be accessed outside its home country, Preziosi said the search engine is helping to bring Chinese censorship to the U.S. Those anti-democratic policies are being foisted upon people within the United States, he added.

But lawyers representing Baidu have called Thursdays ruling a victory for free speech rights.

First Amendment Rights for Students – Video

A 27-year-old Northeast Ohio man with previous illegal explosives manufacturing, weapons possession and drug trafficking convictions was indicted in federal court on Wednesday on charges he threatened to kill President Barack Obama and for “threats made in interstate commerce” when he used social media to threaten the lives of others.

“Through multiple postings on Facebook, he stated he would kill the president when he had the chance,” the federal indictment said of Christopher Gembicki, 27. The second count says he posted on Facebook that he was going to Kill another person and their family with a chainsaw, and the third count says he posted on Twitter that another person’s “time was up and he was going to drink (the person’s) blood.”

Scene could not find a Facebook account for him it’s possible he deleted the account since the time of the posts but was able to track down the Twitter account the feds attribute to Gembicki (account names are not mentioned in the indictment, but there’s not doubt it’s the one). He changed his twitter handle from @ChrisGembicki11 to @THE4ANTICHRIST in recent months.

On there is all-caps posts about the Illuminati and the New World Order, constant references to himself as the antichrist, and regular use of racial and sexual slurs in death threats to rap and hip hops stars, Vladimir Putin, and a few non-famous people he seemed to have an issue with. One particular target of Gembicki on Twitter was a musician named Honey Cocaine (@QueenHoneyC), a female Cambodia-born, Canada-raised rapper with more than a half million followers on the site. On just Feb. 19 and 20, he sent these tweets regarding the musician:

Among other tweets from those two days in Feb. he also wrote: -”YOUR DEAD FAGGOT” (included with picture of Vladimir Putin) -”CHRIST IS KING” -”ALL HAIL YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR THE ANTICHRIST” -”I AM THE ANTICHRIST. BIRTH HAS BEEN GIVEN TO GOD ON EARTH. APOLLYON THE ANTICHRIST ARRIVES NOW. NEW WORLD ORDER VS THE WORLD. 11 / 11 / 86.” (his birthday is 11/11/1986) -”ILLUMINATI? I AM THE ILLUMINATI” -”THOSE ARE TWERTS THEY SENT ME FROM A FAKE COMEFY SHOW THESE CHIMPS ORCHESTRATED TO ASSASINATE THE ANTICHRIST. TOO BAD I CAN SEE THE FUTURE” -”NEW WORLD ORDER VS THE WORLD. ALLMY LITTLE PRINCESS MUFFINS, YOU HEAR MY CHA8NSAW? I LOVE YOU MY LITTLE DINOSAUR EGGS” (included with a picture of “DJ HeavyGrinder,” another Twitter target of his). -”I AM THE COLLECTOR YOU ARE MY COLLECTION. YOUR FAMILY IS DEAD YA DIG SLUMUFFIN?” -”NIGHTMARE IN MURDERLAND STARRING THE ANTICHRIST” (included with picture of Vladimir Putin).

Gembicki’s Google+ account says he’s been a journalism student at Cleveland State since 2013, but we were unable to confirm that statement. He’s also an aspiring standup comedian, according to his profile, and may have performed at a Jan. 8 show at Jack Perry’s Grille & Pub in Austintown (it’s possible this event was referenced in the Feb. 19 tweet about “A FAKE COMEFY SHOW” mentioned above).

Gembicki had been locked up in the Cuyahoga County jail in Cleveland since February 25 (five days after his last published tweet) when he was arrested by Broadview Heights police on burglary and aggravated theft charges, county court records show. Those records list a Broadview Heights address for the him, but previous court records show addresses in Warren and Niles.

On March 3, federal court records show a US magistrate judge issued an order transferring Gembicki from the county jail over to custody by the United States Secret Service, FBI, or the United States Marshal in Cleveland. He was officially indicted by a federal grand jury on Wednesday.

Gembicki has been in trouble before, per court records in Trumbull County. In 2005 when he was living in Niles, the Trumbull County sheriff’s office arrested him for illegally manufacturing or processing explosives and carrying a concealed weapon and sentenced to five years of probation.

A few months later, he was arrested for felony trafficking of counterfeit controlled substances. The next year, the Niles Police Department booked him on three felony counts of having weapons while under disability, carrying a concealed weapon, and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.
