The Latest on the TPP

There are lots of ugly aspects to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, not the least of which is its "living agreement" status. The TPP is opposed by people from all political parties and most issues groups. Whether the issue is the economy or food safety, there's something in the TPP for everybody to grab hold of and fight against. The trillions of dollars of international trade, which the U.S. already participates in, are not going to disappear if we don't pass the TPP. Current jobs are not in jeopardy. Almost every country in the world is already welcome to do business with the U.S. as they wish without a trade deal - even the currency manipulators and the human rights abusers. Why, then, are we pushing so hard to squeeze every last dime from the planet via the TPP? [more...]

The Curious Case of Rachel Dolezal

Is Rachel Dolezal a brave "trans-black" woman setting herself free, the same way Caitlyn Jenner is transgender? Or is she intentionally deceiving others for her own financial and personal gain? The case in favor of Rachel is suspicious. During an interview Friday, she dodged questions then abruptly walked away, leaving her purse and car keys behind. Furthermore, over the past years, Rachel reported eight instances of hate-crimes committed against her, including a swastika and noose on her door. Police investigations into the matter never turned up a suspect, yet in fact led people to suspect she may have been behind it herself. A package containing racist material was left in her NAACP mailbox, though contained no official date stamp from the post office, indicating only someone with a key (Rachel) could have deposited the box. The story of Rachel Dolezal raises lots of questions about both her life and the greater climate of race in the U.S. I think this one will take a while to pan out. [more...]

Jeb, Trump and Counting

With Jeb entering the race yesterday, and Trump entering today with a $9 billion net worth, will we see one of the most exciting and unusual nominating processes in history?  Will it be the most expensive?  There can only be one Republican presidential candidate and one Republican VP candidate, so that leaves around 18 other disappointed candidates.  Given all the money raised and apparently available (for example, Trump), there is a real chance we might have an independent, third-party candidate in 2016.

Obama Forced Equality

Mr. Obama has decided that we Americans don't really understand equality. He thinks we don't understand how to help our neighbors (or others) so he is going to mandate it. As usual, he thinks by forcing his view of "equality" on us it will make everything perfect. The president is having HUD (the Department of Housing and Urban Development) - those same wonderful people who gave you "the projects," "ghettos," and "Section 8 housing" - look at the inequities in various neighborhoods that are mostly white, mostly black, mostly rich, mostly poor, and basically not diverse enough. Why? To implement forced equality. He wants to use billions of dollars in HUD grants as a carrot to cities to mix up the neighborhoods a bit more - you know, make adjustments in building codes and such to bring in more "diversity." If you don't, your grant money just might disappear. He and HUD are going to dictate how a neighborhood should look or else! [more...]

Massive Hacking of Government Employee Records

A massive hacking of government employee records, presumably by the People's Republic of China, went undetected for more than a year. At first it appeared that 4 million confidential employee records were stolen, but computer security expert David Kennedy, the “White Hat Hacker,” told Fox News that because the hacking bug likely spread for more than a year, it might have collected bio secrets of ALL government employees. "Hackers stole personnel data and Social Security numbers for every federal employee, a government worker union said Thursday, charging that the cyberattack on U.S. employee data is far worse than the Obama administration has acknowledged." Security clearance employees give personal, secret and potentially embarrassing information about themselves to the government, so this hacking might make those who know America's highest secrets into easy targets for Chinese blackmail.

Clinton's Base Trouble and the Rise of Independents

Recently there were three national polls focusing on Hillary Clinton's current political situation. While each poll's sample varied and the questions were also slightly different, they revealed some startling discoveries. The big news: Clinton has begun to lose support in her base groups: women, highly educated voters, young voters and non-whites. In all four groups, over the past two months as there are almost-daily revelations about the e-mail server, huge speaking fees and Clinton Foundation payments, Clinton's support has declined. And among young voters, it is the never-ending Benghazi investigation that is hurting Clinton the most. [more...]
