tpp_protest_rtr_img_2 The Senate approved a bill granting the president trade promotion authority (TPA) Friday, which would severely restrict the Senate's ability to block future trade deals.

Scott Applewhite) For years the American people used their phones thinking that their privacy was secure.  Then came the news that they were being recorded.  They were monitored by their own government.  Who they called, how long they spoke and how often, all recorded and stored.  All this snooping without probable cause or proper vetting by judges.  And as I reported, these actions were judged to be illegal by a New York Appeals Court.  Now our representatives are seeking to replace this illegal operation with Read more [...]

43 Dead and Dozens Wounded on Mexican Ranch; Coming to a Town near You?

Federal police agents stand next to a truck riddled with bullets in Apatzingan, Mexico, Friday Dec. 10, 2010. At least eleven people have been killed including five officers, the teenage daughter of a former mayor and an 8-month-old baby since Wednesday night when gunmen belonging to a drug trafficking organization, known as La Familia, fired on federal police and motorists in Apatzingan. The leader of the drug cartel, Nazario Moreno Gonzalez, is believed to have been killed in a shootout during the two days of fighting. (AP Photo/Primera Plana) For the past decade, violence in Mexico has been severe and almost unabated.  Drug cartels own many officials and police corruption is rampant.  This can be directly and indirectly linked to the U.S./Columbian war on drugs.  As many of the Columbian cartels were arrested and or killed, their Mexican runners and contacts took over the business.  As the drug trade has moved north so has the violence.  This violence has intensified to a level not seen with the Columbians, who were vicious in their Read more [...]

Iowa Democrats Can’t Name a Single Accomplishment of Hillary Clinton

hillary-squish Recently Bloomberg Politics and Purple Strategies held a focus group of Democrat voters in Iowa. They focused in on what average Iowa Democrats thought about the probability (and possibility) of a Hillary Clinton run for the White House in 2016. Surprisingly (he said sarcastically), the group seemed unenthused about the opportunity to vote for Hillary Clinton – though they did all seem to think that she would very likely win in 2016.My favorite part, though, is that when asked to name one accomplishment Read more [...]
