The violent Boston rampage triggered a local and federal response that, according to journalist Glenn Greenwald, adds a new dimension to troubling questions about government secrecy, overreach, and what we sacrifice in the name of national security. Greenwald joins Bill to peel back layers that reveal what the Boston bombings and drone attacks have in common, and how secrecy leads to abuse of government power.

Published on Apr 24, 2013

The debate over the Keystone XL pipeline that is supposed to carry tar sands oil from Canada to the US’ Gulf Coast got a little more heated. On Monday, the Environmental Protection Agency blasted the Obama administration’s claims that the pipeline doesn’t pose an environmental threat. According to the EPA, several “environmental objections” were found in the State Department’s environmental impact review. Jaime Henn, communications director for 350.org, takes a deeper look into the the claims.

4MIN News April 26, 2013: Umbral Field Opens, Magnetic Storm Produced


Suspicious0bservers

Published on Apr 26, 2013

NOTES ON EXTENDING THE QUAKE WATCH:
1) I was WRONG when I thought the coronal hole stream wouldn’t produce a storm.
2) I was WRONG when I thought the umbral field would continue to block earth uninterrupted for days.
Minor watch conditions endure through the month of April, with nearly 1 week of quiet after the watch. This how I nicely tell you that everything I predicted about the sun 24 hours ago was wrong. Sorry.
