Sign Up: Thousands Demand Labeling for GMOs from White House

In another display of widespread grassroots support for GMO labeling following the suspicious failure of GMO labeling bill Prop 37 in California, a new petition calls upon the Obama administration to require the FDA to label GMOs within consumer products. Growing in popularity each hour, the petition is receiving thousands of signatures per day and currently stands at over 13,390. The petition comes as more and more activists have been taking to the streets and labeling GMO-containing products for themselves using printable warning stickers. (more…)

Undue Process: Obama Administration Carries Out Assassination of U.S. Citizens

The due-process-free assassination of U.S. citizens is now reality
By Glenn Greenwald

Anwar Al-Awlaki

U.S. Citizen, Anwar Al-Awlaki

It was first reported in January of last year that the Obama administration had compiled a hit list of American citizens whom the President had ordered assassinated without any due process, and one of those Americans was Anwar al-Awlaki. No effort was made to indict him for any crimes (despite a report last October that the Obama administration was “considering” indicting him). Despite substantial doubt among Yemen experts about whether he even has any operational role in Al Qaeda, no evidence (as opposed to unverified government accusations) was presented of his guilt. When Awlaki’s father sought a court order barring Obama from killing his son, the DOJ argued, among other things, that such decisions were “state secrets” and thus beyond the scrutiny of the courts. He was simply ordered killed by the President: his judge, jury and executioner. When Awlaki’s inclusion on President Obama’s hit list was confirmed, The New York Times noted that “it is extremely rare, if not unprecedented, for an American to be approved for targeted killing.” (more…)

Obama playing to Republicans on fiscal policy and deficit fears

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Ryan Grim went on MSNBC this afternoon to discuss the Obama administration’s fiscal policy and deficit fears.
Grim appeared to discuss his latest piece, Mayberry Machiavellis: Obama Political Team Handcuffing Recovery, in which he reports on the group of advisers “counseling President Obama to ignore the advice of his economic team and press forward with deficit reduction ahead of job creation.”
Cenk Uygur, guest hosting for Dylan Ratigan, asked Grim why he thought the Obama administration seemed to be adopting a more Republican stance toward the deficit. “It seems like the administration’s political team has bought into the idea that deficit concerns are going to really damage Democrats in the midterm,” Grim said. “That’s the only explanation that I can come up with.” He went on to point that after analyzing the polling data, it’s clear that the American public’s deficit fears don’t translate into a desire for massive cuts of programs like social security, but are merely a “proxy for general anxiety.”
