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

That’s according to economist Thomas Hickey and Emmanuel Saez. Joining TRRN to unpack all this is David Cay Johnston.

Mind Control in American Politics – James Corbett

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.”

Chris Hedges: What Obama Really Meant Was …

Obama’s NSA Reforms Are “A Bouquet of Roses” to the Intelligence Agencies; Julian Assange Responds To NSA Reforms Speech

Earlier today, President Obama outlined reforms of America’s controversial surveillance tactics – which had ensnared millions of people’s phone calls, texts and emails around the globe. After praising the NSA and its importance to security, he admitted it made mistakes in its collection of private data. President Obama also asked the Congress to establish an independent privacy defender in the federal courts, to increase the supervision of intelligence work. Michael Ratner: By portraying NSA surveillance as “patriotic,” President Obama ignores the violations of Americans’ constitutional rights. Julian Assange: This president has been dragged kicking and screaming to today’s address. He’s been very reluctant to make any concrete reforms. Unfortunately today, we also see very few concrete reforms…
