Federal Prosecutors to Seek Death Penalty for Boston Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

RT: US Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Thursday that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 20-year-old surviving suspect of the Boston Marathon bombing, will face the death penalty in his trial. In April, prosecutors say Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan – the 26-year-old who authorities believe was the mastermind – left two bombs near the finish line of the historic Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 260. Tsarnaev has pled not guilty to the 30 criminal charges he faces, 17 of which would carry the death penalty should he be convicted. Ameera David talks to RT’s Marina Portnaya about Holder’s decision-making process in opting for the death penalty in this case.

Obama’s State of the Union Address Failed to Look at Roots of Income Inequality

TRNN: Obama’s address failed to look at roots of income inequality. President Obama’s State of the Union address focused on expanding economic opportunities by raising the minimum wage, making college more affordable and increasing economic mobility… During the previous five years of the current economic recovery income and wealth inequality has not only increased, but accelerated. That’s according to economist Thomas Hickey and Emmanuel Saez. Joining TRRN to unpack all this is David Cay Johnston. He’s a pulitzer prize-winning investigative reporter and a contributing editor to Newsweek…

7 Ways the FDA is Failing to Protect: Who Needs the FDA?

7 Ways the FDA is Failing to Protect: Who Needs the FDA?

Some cynically refer to the FDA as the Fraud and Death Administration. Harsh, but many see that name as a bit more than an accurate description. It is certainly the hub of the Medical Mafia wheel. A few years ago, during the height of the occupy Wall Street mania, some were calling for occupy the FDA. Unfortunately, that didn’t get far at all.
Some have even referred to the FDA’s activity as equivalent to dropping an atom bomb on each USA city each year. Why? Primarily due to the amount of deaths and illness it has sanctioned with its sanctioning of dangerous pharmaceutical drugs and toxic food additives while banning safe and effective natural remedies and enforcing bans on healthy foods such as raw milk.

Mind Control in American Politics – James Corbett

Having been immersed in the left/right facade their entire lives, many have begun to see the world and those around them through that prism. Either someone is on the same “side” as they are, or they are the enemy. There is no room for nuance, no subtle distinctions to be made, no room for alliance or cooperation on matters of great import. Perhaps most devastatingly, there is now little room for any analysis of the powers behind the political throne, the oligarchical financial interests that could care less whether this or that President has a “D” or an “R” next to their name, whether a Prime Minister is “Labour” or “Conservative,” whether an MEP identifies with the “left” or the “right.”

One Planet, One Internet: A Call To the International Community to Fight Against Mass Surveillance

On February 11, the world will demand an end to mass surveillance in every country, by every state, regardless of boundaries or politics.

As Aaron Swartz put it, everybody “made themselves the hero of their own story.” We can set a date, but we need everyone, all the users of the Global Internet, to make this a movement.
