Across America many cities and police forces are eyeing new ways to crack down on protesters. The First Amendment right to assemble and protest is going to get a black eye in 2012—as it has every time there has been an upsurge in America’s social justice movements.

Gas prices continue to rise, which is finally giving Republicans an issue. Mitt Romney is demanding the President open up more domestic drilling; the super PAC behind Rick Santorum just released a new ad in Louisiana blasting the President on gas prices; and the GOP is attacking the White House on the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Pressure inside Yemen seemed to be working, and a pardon was ready for then-president Ali Abdullah Saleh to sign. Shaye has "risked his life to travel to areas controlled by Al-Qaeda and to interview its leaders." Enter Barack Obama, who "expressed concern" over Shaye's release. The pardon was shelved; as Scahill reports:
