DOMESTIC SECURITY AND ISIL
- When the U.S. Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee meets in Washington, members will examine social media and the next evolution of terrorist recruitment. Al Jazeera America’s Jamie McIntyre has more on Mubin Shaikh, who is scheduled to testify before the committee. Shaikh is a self-described former supporter of violent attacks on Western targets and now works with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) to prevent international and domestic attacks.
- Additionally, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will travel to New York to meet with community leaders to discuss ongoing collaboration with civil rights and civil liberties leaders, safeguarding local communities, and building partnerships between community organizations and state and local officials. Homeland Security has worked for years to build strong ties with the Muslim-American community as a law enforcement tool – including getting communities and mosque leadership to police themselves and tip off authorities to potential domestic threats from within. But with the numerous complaints from community leaders on a number of civil rights violations, trust has eroded. Given concerns over "home grown terrorism" and the ISIL claims of responsibility for the Garland attack, much is at stake for those charged with safeguarding the US. Al Jazeera America’s national security correspondent Jamie McIntyre has more from Washington, D.C.

Guest 3: Eric Gladen, Director of the documentary, Trace amounts: Autism, mercury, and the hidden Truth.
Eric spent the first two years researching the science behind potential “causes” of Autism. Immediately I realized how controversial this subject was since many were claiming that childhood vaccines were the cause. But I wasn’t focused on the vaccines themselves, I was focused on something else that is simply added to vaccines solely to save pharmaceutical companies time and money. Mercury.

DEEPWATER HORIZON SPILL IN LOUISIANA
- April 20th marked the five-year anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, when a deep-water oil rig exploded, killing 11 workers and unleashing an 87-day undersea geyser of oil that spewed at least 518 million liters into the Gulf of Mexico. Environmentalists and BP have each recently filed reports on the current status of the Gulf ecosystem. each entity clearlyhas used the findings to underscore their point of view. Some examples, BP says the massive cleanup efforts have been "highly effective" and have prevented a lot of oil from reaching the shorelines. The National Wildlife Federation says BP is still cleaning up its mess 5 years later. A 28,000 tarmat was discovered just a few weeks ago. BP says oiled beaches and marsh areas have "largely recovered,” while the National Wildlife Federation says the coastal wetlands continue to show signs of visible oil years later.
The worst environmental disaster in U.S. history took place five years ago when the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig blew in the Gulf of Mexico. Eleven workers were killed and for 87 straight days, oil and methane gas spewed into the water. Parent company BP, which paid $14 billion in claims and other payments, has come under fire for not doing enough in the years that have followed. there’s an upcoming civil case ruling that could results in a $13 billion fine. BP says it cannot afford to pay more than $2.3 billon.

Guest 3: Al Jazeera America’s Jamie McIntyre - Russia's Arms Sale to Iran.
RUSSIA ARMS SALE TO IRAN – THE FACTS
- Some experts are concerned that Russia's planned sale of advanced S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Iran could give Tehran an effective "bulletproof shield" that would largely neutralize any future attempt by the U.S. or Israel to bomb suspected nuclear sites that violate the nuclear agreement. Al Jazeera America takes a deep dive into the deal, to separate the hype from the real concerns about how the advanced mobile air defenses could complicate any future military option. We also examine the S-300 missile's capabilities, and explain how the U.S. might use its stealth and other technical superiority to try to counter the systems.Al Jazeera America’s Jamie McIntyre in Washington has more.

“This is great news for all consumers, particularly for communities of color and low-income Americans, who would have the most to lose without strong action to prevent digital redlining,” said Greenlining Institute Energy and Telecommunications Policy Director Stephanie Chen.
“The battle isn’t over,” added Paul Goodman, Greenlining’s telecommunications legal counsel. “We can expect fierce pushback from the industry, and all of us need to let Congress and the FCC know that Chairman Wheeler is on the right track. Consumer groups will also need to keep a close eye on the implementation of new rules. If we get this right, it will protect access to education, employment and health care for all, even those who have traditionally been left behind.”
The Greenlining Institute first outlined the importance of net neutrality for communities of color in its 2012 report, “Saving the Open Internet.”

Doug Gurian-Sherman is director of sustainable agriculture and senior scientist at the Center for Food Safety. He brought to light the relevant government documents. "New Genetically Engineered Tree To Avoid Federal Oversight Completely," which notes: "A genetically engineered (GE) tree may already be planted in field tests, and eventually be commercialized, in the U.S. without having gone through any regulatory oversight or environmental risk assessment. On January 13th, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) quietly posted its August reply to a letter from ArborGen, a biotechnology company that is developing GE forest trees for plantations, confirming that USDA will require no regulation of ArborGen’s GE loblolly pine.
"This failure to regulate a GE tree is unprecedented. Other known GE forest trees in the U.S. are being grown in USDA-regulated field trials, and none has been approved for commercial planting. USDA regulation is important because it ensures that risk assessments are carried out to determine whether or not the GE tree will harm the environment before a decision on its commercialization. ...
