Was it really less than a year ago that the very same media outlets now taking the Administration to task on their editorial pages beamed so appreciatively at the surgically precise data analysis capabilities of the Obama campaign organization?
Global Price of Climate Change Going Up was the message delivered to an international global disaster conference recently, reports Paul Cox at Aljazee...
In 1882, sensing an emerging age of secularism, Friedrich Nietzsche famously wrote, "God is dead." History proved him wrong, but although God is not yet dead, something else sure as hell is: Privacy.
Applying the FSA retroactively would not undermine public safety. Indeed, by passing the FSA, Congress made clear its view that shorter, fairer crack sentences are compatible with public safety.
We saw the impacts of climate change right outside our window in 2012, a year that brought record-breaking heat waves, droughts, wildfires and Superstorm Sandy. While climate deniers are preventing Congress from taking action, Obama can take steps to combat the climate crisis.

With Dirty Wars it is as if Jeremy Scahill is holding up a mirror against the U.S. government's war against al Qaeda and its affiliates across the Middle East and Africa, while inviting us to look into the abyss of its practices.
Those of us who admire all that Samantha Power has already accomplished in the human rights arena and believe her to be an inspired choice as UN ambassador must speak out on her behalf.
The debate we are now having about government surveillance has become possible only because of "unauthorized disclosures" to the press. It is scandalous that the president didn't see the need for the debate earlier, and bring it to the public's attention himself.
