Clinton will support the TPP if elected

At least that's what the President of the Chamber of Commerce is telling his people. So why would he be so confident in that assertion?

Who is a democratic socialist?

Clinton's irresponsible email server

And not only irresponsible but likely criminal by national security standards. See this article for details. This following quote sums up Clinton's attitude of royalty and privilege. And we in the US criticize the backward royalty in the UK. Ha.

"Someone who does this is completely irresponsible, but totally unaccountable and shows a streak of arrogance to the American public that is unworthy of anyone thinking they can run for President of the United States.”

Sarah Silverman on Clinton v. Sanders

She always did have a way with words. (And penises, for that matter.)

Congressional Black Caucus did NOT endorse Clinton

But that's how it's being reported. See this article showing that it was the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) political action committee (PAC) that endorsed Clinton, not members of the CBC. The CBC PAC board is composed of mostly lobbyists for big business. But even the CBC itself has members that have sold out to Wall Street and big business. So neither really represents the black people per se. But they do influence them with spinned rhetoric about black rights etc. while they rake in the corporate funds. Granted, several members of the CBC are indeed genuine on these issues. But the CBC PAC endorsement of Clinton is just further proof of establishment Dems, no matter their race, selling their soul to the devil for a price.

Senator Warren exposed big bank lies, again

See this article. The Department of Labor has proposed a rule that would require investment advisers to advise clients in the latter's best interest. That we even need such a rule, and that right now said advisers don't have to do this, is astounding in itself. This lack of a basic ethical rule is part of why so many investors lost so much in the financial crisis, given that advisers knew damned well they were selling junk mortgage bonds, reaping a giant profit for themselves, and screwing clients when those bonds failed.

One economist on Bernienomics

In the video below this economist, using standard Congressional Budget Office methodology, asserts Sanders proposals would raise median income by $22,000/year, drop unemployment to 3.8%, create 26 million new jobs and grow the economy by 5.3%/year. Of course this requires temporary government investment in things like education and infrastructure, but said investment will return the surplus needed to get the economy back on track. And this strategy has already been proven in the 50s and 60s when it worked quite well for society as a whole.

The Onion on Rubio's robotic programming

This is a really funny, and accurate, lampoon on candidate Rubio.
