Devil in the Details
Just before the 2008 presidential election, candidate Barack Obama said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” In this week’s boralogue, John examines predictions from 40 years ago that projected an end-run around the sovereignty of nations. Today, this is being accomplished through a series of trade agreements. The process occurs in gradual increments rather than a full frontal assault so that governments can be changed without the knowledge and consent of the governed. Obama’s transformation plan for America continues unabated.
We remember Nancy Pelosi famously saying of Obamacare, “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” History, it seems, is repeating itself with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreements. Bill Jasper (www.thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American, discusses his reasons to oppose Obamatrade, including the secrecy surrounding it, fast track authority dangers, and its radical transformation of global geopolitics.
There hasn’t been a significant warming in global temperatures for 18 years, yet climate change activists trudge ahead with their “hottest year on record” narrative. Retired President of the Science & Environmental Policy Project Fred Singer (www.sepp.com) confirms this narrative as false by analyzing actual scientific findings.
Stories of unarmed black men gunned down by law enforcement officers and the subsequent protests have dominated news media for several months. But what happens when neighborhood police patrols decline as a result? Heather MacDonald (www.manhattan-institute.org), a Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, examines a growing empowerment of inner city criminals known as the Ferguson Effect.
