The TPP agreement is not designed to grow trade because instead it is constructed in a manner designed to carry on, and double-down, on the destructive policies already in place because of the Obama administration
Examining Trans Pacific Partnership

 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full Story

On Constitution Radio with Douglas V. Gibbs on May 23, 2015 over KMET 1490AM, the topic of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement moseyed its way into the arena of discussion. During the conversation a rare instance in the many year history of the radio program, and on the Political Pistachio blogsite for that matter, emerged where JASmius (my longtime co-host, staff writer, and dear friend) and I disagreed.

The Hillary Enigma
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

Does it strike anyone as strange that the only candidate for the Democratic Party’s nomination to be the next President of the United States is the wife of a former President? There is no historic precedent for this, no way to measure this against how Americans have selected Presidents in the past.



Obama Amnesty Stays Shut Down
 By Matthew Vadum Full Story

President Obama’s unilaterally imposed immigration amnesty plan will remain suspended for the time being, thanks to a federal appeals court ruling that serves as a desperately needed reminder to Americans that the United States is not supposed to be a one-man dictatorship.

EPA decides that pothole full of water on your property just might be a wetland
 By Dan Calabrese Full Story

No act of Congress is involved here, but since when is that significant when we're talking about the Obama Administrative State? The Clean Water Act of 1986 gives the EPA authority to claim jurisdiction over wetlands, and the language in the act leaves a bit of room for interpretation concerning just what a wetland is.

Full Disclosure For All!

Our government has pushed food labeling to the extreme. Demanding that calories, fat, sugar and other ingredients be fully visible to the public in order for them to be able to make informed decisions about the food they eat. But what about informing the public about the news they receive on a daily basis?

 By Al Kaltman Full Story

On February 2, 2009, Vice President Biden administered the oath of office for Secretary of State to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Catholic Group Exposes Red Influence in the Vatican
 By Cliff Kincaid Full Story

Doing the research and investigative work that the major U.S. media have all but abandoned, an organization called the American Life League (ALL) has uncovered dramatic evidence of links between the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church and an international communist group known as the World Social Forum. The evidence suggests overt Marxist influence on the climate change movement that Pope Francis and his top advisers are now embracing.






“Kick the Jewish State out of Football!” This is Racism, FIFA!
 By Barry Shaw Full Story
If Israel has to go that extra mile for peace after multiple offers of concessions were roundly rejected, then the Palestinians, who are so far behind, have to go a full marathon distance just to catch up. But they are not on the start line. They are not even on the track. Instead, they are in the judges’ stand screaming to have Israel disqualified and removed from the race.

Common Sense Doesn't Need A Visa
 By Dave Merrick Full Story

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Rogozin's recent combative remark, "tanks don't need visas," is what can be called an 'overflow.' They were easy words for him to say because the United States is only a threat as long as our oil is still flowing and our words are still considered solid. With our economy in the hands of the Chinese, and our nation overrun with and generally governed by selfish children, he felt comfortable in saying that. 'Taking down America' is probably a break room joke between Vladimir Putin and the rest of the boys. (Notice that he was not in the slightest censured for his remarks. That's got to tell you something -- or at least it should.)

Victory: Cop-Killer Mural Removed at Marquette University
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

Marquette University is the latest institution of “higher learning” attempting to distance itself from a self-inflicted scandal. The Catholic campus’s Gender and Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC) decided to erect a mural honoring one if its apparent heroes: convicted cop killer, escaped convict and wanted terrorist Assata Shakur.

Vox Features Yet Another Climate Science “Denier”
 By Institute for Energy Research   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

As an economist studying climate change policy for several years, I often feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone. To listen to the constant drumbeat of catastrophic predictions based on the so-called scientific “consensus,” and to witness the scathing denunciation of the “deniers” who are supposedly selling out humanity for money, you would certainly think that the periodic reports issued by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) would back up the alarmist rhetoric.

So the GOP Must Embrace Evil to Survive. Really?
 By Lloyd Marcus   --American Politics

A black liberal columnist made the point in his article that the future of the GOP rests on it getting rid of its conservatives. Then, the GOP can modernize; attract more young voters of color by embracing open borders, amnesty, abortion and all the other filth coming out of the Democratic Party. Embracing this strategy is tantamount to embracing evil.


New York Times Still Deceiving About Obamacare
 By Roger Aronoff   --American Healthcare

The New York Times is at it again. In a front page story in Tuesday’s print edition, the Times is dishonestly pushing an argument that they hope will result in a favorable Supreme Court decision for President Obama’s so called Affordable Care Act. The mantra repeated over and over again is this: those four words in the Obamacare law—“established by the state”—were actually an accident, a drafting error. And those words, according to the Times and all of the sources they chose to comment on it for the article, are being misinterpreted by some who want to, shall we say, “degrade and defeat” the law.

Obama’s Floundering Executive Amnesty: Voter Fraud Based on Racial Profiling!
 By John Lillpop   --American Politics

Although President Obama and most Democrats like to pretend that supporting illegal aliens is all about love and compassion and keeping families together, the truth is far more harsh.

In fact, Obama and Democrats know that liberal “solutions” seldom solve anything, and frequently exacerbate the very problems they were supposed to solve.


Five Reasons Government Debts Aren’t Like Mortgages

Every time the Manitoba government borrows money there is an inevitable comparison to home mortgages, but an inch below the spin is the glaring reality that government debt is nothing like a mortgage. Here are five reasons why.


Time to duck-and-cover. Marie Harf promoted - will join Kerry’s ‘Iran nuclear deal’ team
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

Time to duck-and-cover. Marie Harf promoted - will join Kerry's 'Iran nuclear deal' teamObviously, the definition is derived from the infamous moment when State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf suggested that we wouldn’t need to worry about Jihadists if we just had some kind of jobs program that would keep them busy.  This line of thinking relies on the idea that, if McDonalds would just implement a $15 minimum wage, radical Islamists wouldn’t behead Christians because they’d be too busy making them “Filet o’ Fish” sandwiches.

Perfume researchers lend their noses to design less odorous latrines
 By American Chemical Society   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

About 2.5 billion people worldwide don’t have access to sanitary toilets. Latrines are an option for many of those people, but these facilities’ overwhelming odors can deter users, who then defecate outdoors instead. To improve this situation, fragrance scientists paired experts’ noses and analytical instruments to determine the odor profiles of latrines with the aim of countering the offensive stench. Their report appears in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology.


Expanding the code of life with new ‘letters’
 By American Chemical Society   --Science-Technology

The DNA encoding all life on Earth is made of four building blocks called nucleotides, commonly known as “letters,” that line up in pairs and twist into a double helix. Now, two groups of scientists are reporting for the first time that two new nucleotides can do the same thing — raising the possibility that entirely new proteins could be created for medical uses. Their two studies appear in ACS’ Journal of the American Chemical Society.


An Iraq War veteran pens a powerful defense of the decision to invade, remove Saddam
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

We’ve been coming back to the Iraq War lately for two reasons. One is that the media keep bringing it up in the form of a knowing-what-we-know-now gotcha question aimed at Republican presidential candidates (although they offer no such question to Hillary Clinton concerning the 2011 withdrawl of all U.S. troops . . . not that she would answer). The other, more pertinent reason, is that ISIS is overrunning Iraq at the moment, taking advantage of the absence of a residual U.S. force and Barack Obama’s refusal to wage a real fight against them.

How to Kill the Coal Industry: Implement EPA’s “Clean Power Plan”
 By Institute for Energy Research   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) just released its report analyzing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) so-called “Clean Power Plan” and finds that it will shutter many more coal-fired power plants.(i] Coal-fired power plants are already shuttering due to onerous EPA regulations and more will close due to this proposed plan, according to EIA. Today, coal generates 39 percent of the nation’s electricity; by 2030, its share will be reduced to 25 percent if EPA’s proposed plan is implemented. As a result, coal miners will lose their jobs as U.S. coal production takes a major hit over the next decade.
