The Resurrection Of Zombie Trade

The Resurrection Of Zombie Trade

For the second time in as many weeks, the House of Representatives has approved fast-track trading authority for the President. Although, as we’ve pointed out repeatedly on this website, TPP has very little to do with actual free trade.

Conventional Wisdom Defied

  In the wake of what the White House characterizes as a “procedural” defeat, it’s worth examining why Congress has seemingly rejected TPP-or at least, structured it so that the final bill will not be adopted into law.

So someone who has defied the Constitution and imperiled the lives of countless Americans...

The 114th Session Of Congress

Update: Obama’s facilitator scrapes by. The Daily Signal has the final vote count.  Let the retribution begin.  Watch the opening live on C-Span. Will John Boehner survive to continue his Pelosi-like reign over the House of Representatives? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Bye Bye Boehner

Bye Bye Boehner

Although the prospect of replacing the current Speaker of the House looks grim at the moment-especially from an historical standpoint-the fact remains that there is widespread dissatisfaction with the leadership, such as it is, of John Boehner. If the quarter of a million letters demanding that he be replaced weren’t an indication of that...
