How invasive is the NYPD's surveillance of the Muslims?

Gadeir Abbas, CAIR, joins Thom Hartmann. A new study out on the New York Police Department's surveillance of Muslims suggests that the program has done grave damage to the city's Muslim community. The NYPD launched its surveillance program in 2001 following the September 11th terrorist attacks. The program monitors Muslims in New York City and beyond. The study of 57 American Muslims in New York City found that the NYPD's surveillance program was commonly perceived as suppressing religion freedom, chilling freedom of speech, creating strife within communities, and harming trust of law enforcement officials. So - just how much damage has the NYPD done to New York City's Muslim community - and are similar surveillance programs being used across the country?

The Good, The Bad, and the Very, Very Nepotationly Ugly...

The Good! Progressive House Democrats. Libertarians aren't the only ones worried about drones. On Monday - 8 House Democrats - including Keith Ellison - Barbara Lee - and Raul Grijalva - sent a letter to Obama expressing concern with the Constitutionality of his administration's "remote assassination program." The group identified the program's unlimited geographic scope - broad definition of the phrase "imminent threat" - and use of secretive kill lists as particularly troubling. Anyone who calls themself a progressive should absolutely worry about expansive executive power and extrajudicial killings. The Left needs politicians like Representatives Ellison and Lee to push the mainstream of the party to promote our core values - not just the policies of the President. This letter is a good start.

The Good! Paul Krugman. The New York Times columnist smashed the myth of Social Security insolvency during his Sunday appearance on ABC's This Week. When Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson urged his fellow panelists to take a hard look at the "facts" of government spending - Krugman interrupted to point out the Senator's ...well... less than accurate understanding of reality. Senator Johnson and his corporate backed buddies have everyone worried about quoute - on - quote entitlement spending - but here's the truth - Social Security is as well-funded a program as any. Now that most of the mainstream media has succumbed to the right's Chicken Little rhetoric - it's reassuring to see a pundit of Krugman's influence call this obession with Social Security's downfall what it is - a big fat lie.
