Joe’s most crucial race

In addressing my old friend, Vice President Joe Biden, as he contemplates a run for the White House, I would ask him what he thinks of Hillary Clinton’s chances for the presidency? In fact, what does he think of her presidency in the unlikely event she is nominated and wins? Do I hear four more years of Whitewaters, Travelgates, campaign finance violations, dubious pardons, Johnny Chungs, Charlie Tries, and slutty cuties’ feet protruding from behind the curtains?

The MH17 Pilot’s Corpse: More on the Cover-Up

It might be the decisive piece of evidence proving who and what and how and why the MH17 Malaysian airliner over the conflict zone in Ukraine on 17 July 2014 was shot down, but the pilot’s corpse has been hidden even from the people who have the most right to see it.

Space crab? Mars object in NASA pics totally thrills red planet fans

“Spider”, “Alien”, “John Carter”, “awesome Martian space crab” – these are a few suggestions by social media users who apparently thoroughly studied a recent NASA image of Mars which captured a strange object on the surface of the red planet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Meanwhile, TIME magazine says you're just imagining things!

Here is my take. I am frustrated by the fact that this is a jpeg with compression artifacts versus the uncompressed raw image. If anyone has the original data please send it along.

It is clear that this object is not part of the underlying regolith. The difference in shape makes it clear that this is formed by a different process than the surrounding terrain.

On a purely subjective level it looks like a dead root system that washed into a convenient hole. Or something that lived in the hole, like a sea anemone that has died. Were I in charge, I would consider it worthwhile to backtrack and take another look. But as I pointed out in the article about Dr. Gilbert Levin, there appears to be a political agenda to not acknowledge life on Mars, which explains the nonsensical TIME magazine dismissal of the object, and the fact that Curiosity (not living up to its name) just passed this by.

Fox announces lineup for GOP debate -- with Trump at center stage

Fox News has announced the lineup for the first Republican presidential debate, one that will probably be dominated by the figure standing at center stage, Donald Trump, whose attention-grabbing skills have allowed him to leap to the front of a crowded GOP field over the last six weeks.

Flanking Trump in the 10-candidate debate lineup will be Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida and onetime GOP front-runner, and Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin.

Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey and John Kasich of Ohio and Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, will round out the field.

Perry fails to qualify for Republican debate; Christie, Kasich secure last two spots

Rick Perry failed to qualify for Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, marking an early setback for the former Texas governor who is eager to show that his debate struggles four years ago were an aberration and he belongs among the top-tier Republicans in the 2016 presidential race.

Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey and John Kasich of Ohio, meanwhile, secured the final two spots up for grabs in the 9 p.m. debate in Cleveland, where Donald Trump, the frontrunner in polls, will take center stage, sandwiched between former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

2016 Selection: 1/3 of All Campaign Donations Funded by Just 60 Elite Individuals

Campaign finance reform ain't gonna cut it.

Fewer and fewer individuals are underwriting the costs of campaigns edging out the influence of the every man.

The Associated Press just reviewed the donations so far for the 2016 presidential cycle, and found stunning results:

nearly 60 donations of a million dollars or more accounted for about a third of the more than $380 million brought in so far for the 2016 presidential election.

Trump: I would shut down government over Planned Parenthood

Donald Trump said he believes Republicans should shut down the government rather than fund Planned Parenthood, the health services group that is facing scrutiny after undercover videos of its officials emerged.

Trump said Monday on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt's show that the videos, which feature Planned Parenthood officials apparently discussing the sale of fetal tissue and organs for medical research, are "disgraceful."

At the time of the interview, Trump said he was unclear where the Senate stood on an upcoming vote Monday to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding.

Rohnert Park Police Officer Draws Gun On Citizen And Asks If He's A Constitutionalist

"Prior to pulling out my camera and hitting record this cop pulled slowly into my court then just stopped infront of my house for a good 30 seconds while I was trying to hook my boat up to my Excursion. I stood up and just watched him. He ever so slowly pulled away, circled the court opposite my house and then just parked facing my house. After an honest couple of minutes I pulled out my camera and pressed record. As minor as some would say it was, when I saw his gun gripped in his hand I really thought he was going to shoot me and claim my hand was in my pocket"

Despite Epic Crash of World Economy, White Collar Prosecutions at 20-Year Low

Despite lofty rhetoric from politicians who vowed in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis to hold Wall Street accountable, U.S. Justice Department statistics show a "long-term collapse" of federal white collar crime prosecutions, which are down to their lowest level in 20 years, according to a new report from Syracuse University.

The analysis of thousands of records by the university's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) shows a more than 36 percent decline in such prosecutions since the middle of the Clinton administration, when the decline first began. While there was an uptick early in Barack Obama's presidency, current projections indicate that by the end of the 2015 fiscal year, such prosecutions will be at their lowest level since 1995.

But that doesn't mean white collar crime itself—which involves a wide range of activities such as health care fraud and the violation of tax, securities, antitrust, federal procurement, and other laws—is on the wane.

Video Shows School Resource Officer Handcuffing Third-Grader With ADHD

A school resource officer in Kentucky placed handcuffs on a third-grade boy with disabilities as he cried, according to a video released on Monday by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The ACLU released the video along with a lawsuit filed against the Kenton County Sheriff's Office in Covington, Ky., due to numerous incidents. The ACLU alleges that Kenton County Deputy Sheriff Kevin Sumner, a school resource officer, shackled an 8-year-old and a 9-year-old with their hands behind their backs. Both students have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to the ACLU.

Saudi king blamed Mossad for 9/11

The former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia said in an interview that current Saudi King Salman told him after 9/11 that the Israeli Mossad intelligence agency was responsible.

“One of my first calls was with then-governor of Riyadh, Prince Salman, who is now the king. His response was very emphatic, this could not have been Saudis. We couldn't possibly have done this,” the former ambassador Robert Jordan said on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS.

“This had to have been an Israeli plot. The Mossad must have done this,” Salman said at the time.

Bombshell: CDC Destroyed Vaccine Documents… CDC Whistleblower Case is Back

“…the [CDC] co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the [MMR vaccine] study. The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.” (William Thompson, CDC researcher)

On July 29, US Congressman Bill Posey made his last stand on the floor of the House. Granted five minutes to speak, he laid bare the lying of the CDC in a now-famous 2004 study that exonerated the MMR vaccine and claimed it had no connection to autism.

“No connection to autism” was the lie.

Homeland Security admits CISA info-sharing bill could 'sweep away' privacy protections

The deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has admitted that a new cybersecurity bill could “sweep away” privacy protections, adding that it raises privacy and civil liberties concerns. The bill could hit the Senate floor this week.

Responding to a July query from Minnesota Senator Al Franken, DHS Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that some provisions of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) “could sweep away important privacy protections” and that proposed legislation “raises privacy and civil liberties concerns.”

The bill authorizes companies to share information about cyber threats with “any federal entity.” Any company participating in the data sharing would be immune from consumer lawsuits.

Actress Amy Schumer Joins Cousin Senator Chuck Schumer in Emotional Push for More Gun Control

The movie showing at the time of the Lafayette movie theater shooting (which just so happened to coincide with the anniversary of the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting) was “Trainwreck,” which stars Amy Schumer.

Amy Shumer just so happens to be New York Senator Chuck Schumer’s cousin. Senator Chuck Schumer just so happens to have recently introduced new gun control legislation.

Via Yahoo! News:

The “Trainwreck” star appeared with the New York senator this morning at a news conference with a sign saying “Enough Is Enough” by their side.

“Amy may have started out as a comedian but this subject is really serious,” the senator said, adding, “I have a lot of press conferences but I almost never get this many people.”

Never get that many people, huh? You don’t say, Senator. How often does it work out that a Senator has a celebrity endorsing his legislation just like that?

U.S. government begins human trials of genetically modified Ebola vaccine

Just as predicted, vaccine companies are soon planning to unveil an Ebola vaccine in response to the manufactured Ebola outbreak that's allegedly still spreading throughout West Africa. A genetically-modified (GM) Ebola vaccine that's currently undergoing human clinical trials will be a spray rather than an injection, and its administration, according to one virologist, "...will not require trained medical personnel."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that an earlier test of an Ebola vaccine carried out at the clinic in Kenema, is thought to have triggered the outbreak in the first place.

And it turns out there has been an invasion, of sorts – although it isn’t a Russian one. It’s the Kiev regime’s own foot-soldiers returning from the front and turning on their masters.

Thanks to Reliance on "Signature" Drone Strikes, US Military Doesn't Know Who It's Killing

Last month, on June 9, the United States launched a drone strike that killed Nasir al-Wuhayshi, a high-ranking leader in the Islamic militant group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). What makes the strike notable is that it was a coincidence: The CIA - the agency that pulled the trigger - had no idea al-Wuhayshi was among the group of suspected militants it targeted. Al-Wuhayshi's death at the hands of a US drone reveals that the United States continues to fire drone missiles at people whose identities it does not know.

Matthew Greer, chief executive officer of Miami-based Carlisle Development Group, and Lloyd Boggio, founder of the company, are charged with conspiring with several others in a fraud scheme by padding the cost of inner-city housing projects to qualify for larger federal tax credits and then splitting the excess profits among themselves, according to court records.

Ambassador accuses UK of "squeezing" Russian diplomats out of the country

This practice "is out of keeping with international commitments" of the country, the diplomat wrote in Twitter, saying the number of embassy staffers was reducing as a result.
Explaining the situation, the source said that London, not only its Foreign Office but also the Home Office, is delaying by five to six months the issuing of visas for new embassy staffers, adding that this practice involved diplomats of "any level".
"In addition, also in defiance of their international commitments, the British side has started establishing deadlines for the work of staffers of our foreign missions in Great Britain, in other words threatening to expel them," the diplomat said, noting that the UK related normalization of the situation to the settlement in Ukraine and urging Moscow return moves in that "serious" situation.

Former Brazil chief of staff arrested in Petrobras scandal

Police in Brazil have arrested former presidential chief of staff Jose Dirceu, the most senior member of the ruling Workers' Party to be taken into custody in connection with corruption at the state-owned oil company Petrobras.

Dirceu served as former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's chief of staff between 2003 and 2005. He was arrested on Monday in his home in Brasilia, where he was under house arrest serving an 11-year sentence for his involvement in a cash-for-votes scheme in Congress more than 10 years ago.

Prosecutors say Dirceu masterminded the kickback scheme at Petrobras, accepted bribes while in office and continued to receive payments from contractors after he was jailed in late 2013 for the vote-buying scandal.

We've written a few times about the ridiculousness of so-called ag-gag laws, that prohibit photographing or videotaping farms (sometimes even from public land). These laws were pushed for heavily by large industrial farmers who were sick of animal rights advocates getting images and videos of the conditions in farms and slaughterhouses that were questionable. Whatever you might think of the practices of those advocates, banning taking photographs or videos seemed like a really questionable move -- which would have a chilling effect on whistleblowers of all kinds. It seemed like it had to be unconstitutional -- and a court in Idaho agrees, declaring that state's law unconstitutional.

The Slow Political Death of Chris Christie

Stepping into the Winner's Circle, presidential candidate and Governor Chris Christie must have thought it would be his moment to bask in the glory of another large farm beast and receive a bit of adulation himself. Now, your average horse race fan is not generally a bleeding heart liberal, but they do know how to cheer for winners and how to treat losers. So they booed Christie, loudly, the kind of boo that only a large percentage of a crowd of 61,000 can make. Then they cheered the horse's trainer and owner who said Christie's name, which led to more boos.

Here Are the Polls Fox News Will Use to Select the Candidates for the First GOP Debate

Tomorrow around 5 p.m., Fox News executives are scheduled to gather in Roger Ailes's second-floor conference room at the network's midtown headquarters to decide the lineup of candidates who will participate in the first Republican debate on Thursday in Cleveland. Fox’s decision to limit the prime-time field to ten candidates has become a flash point in the GOP. Perhaps the biggest point of contention: The network’s refusal to tell campaigns which polls it will be using to select the participants for the 9 p.m. debate moderated by Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace (the remaining seven candidates will face off in a 5 p.m. debate that’s being viewed as something of a JV contest). How Fox will choose the field has been an intense topic of speculation.

Jewish settlers destroy crops after arson attack on house fails

Jewish settlers set fire to dozens of olive trees, fields and agricultural land belonging to Palestinians on Sunday, after their arson attack failed to destroy a local house. The attack took place in the village of El-Mughier, east of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

Eyewitnesses told Quds Press that a group of Jewish settlers came from one of the Israeli settlements near the village and tried to burn a house down. They fled when they were spotted by villagers.

"While they were being chased by the villagers," the witnesses added, "the Israeli occupation forces arrived and began to fire tear gas and rubber bullets to secure the settlers' withdrawal."

The same sources said that the settlers took advantage of the clashes that broke out between local youths and the occupation forces and burned dozens of olive trees in Al-Rufid, part of the land belonging to Al-Mughier. "More than 50 olive trees were burnt down."

It's not easy being a cop.

But obviously law enforcers are vital if we want to live in a society where pesky things like rape, murder, and double-parking don't occur with The Purge-level frequency. And many of them are willing to put up with all the abuse and annoyances out of a sense of duty to their fellow humans.

New US fighter jet on course to becoming ‘one of history’s biggest white elephants’

A plane so technologically advanced that it would give Britain and the US air superiority in any future conflict and billed as the world’s most advanced stealth fighter jet, could be one of “the biggest white elephants in history”, according to a former defence minister.

And while costs of the F-35 spiral and delays run into years, another commentator has warned that “our skies and seas are vulnerable”.

The aircraft, manufactured by Lockheed Martin, was designed to replace the Harrier jump-jet, which went out of service in 2011. The UK once envisaged ordering 150 F-35s, to be ready by 2012. Three years on, the F-35 is still far from ready to fly in combat and the cost of a single jet has risen from £33m to £87m. The UK has ordered only eight to date.

The First invasion of Iraq began when Saddam Hussein, encouraged by April Glaspie, invaded Kuwait over allegations that Kuwait was slant-drilling under the border into Iraqi oil fields.

So, will the US simply abandon Kuwait now, admitting that Kuwait was just an excuse for Desert Storm, or will there be another hoax to sell an invasion of Saudi Arabia?

Congressman Wants CDC Investigated for Tampering With MMR Study

It’s troubling to me that in a recent Senate hearing on childhood vaccinations, it was never mentioned that our government has paid out over $3 billion to a Vaccine Injury Compensation Program for children who have been injured by vaccinations. Regardless of the subject matter, parents making decisions about their children’s health deserve to have the best information available to them. They should be able to count on federal agencies to tell them the truth. For these reasons, I bring the following matters to the House floor.

In August 2014, Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, worked with a whistleblower attorney to provide my office with documents related to a 2004 CDC study that examined the possibility of a relationship between mumps, measles, rubella vaccine and autism.

Facebook seeks to sway 2016 election outcomes

It's no secret that Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has an affinity for illegal aliens. He's donated millions to fund their college education (but not so much to fund the education of poor Americans), and has actively lobbied Congress to allow more legal immigration so he and his tech-industry colleagues can import more cheap labor to replace higher-paid American workers.

But the U.S. political system is messy, you see, and even a billionaire doesn't always get what he or she wants. So Zuckerberg has decided to try another approach. He will use his creation, the world's largest social media site, to influence the 2016 elections so he can hopefully help elect candidates that will be much more sympathetic to his "immigrant-first" business model.

Coca-Cola, Xerox and Ford have all told Planned Parenthood to remove their names from its website, and other corporations like Pepsi that previously made use of aborted fetal cells in the manufacture of their products have announced that they're likewise cutting ties.

Tropical Storm Guillermo Shifting North, Will Miss Us!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want to make a point here. Two days ago the computer models showed Guillermo headed right towards us. Today it is projected to miss us by hundreds of miles. Obviously the computer models are not very good, yet Obama insists that computer models "prove" we will have more hurricanes if we don't tax carbon; a hard claim to support when we cannot even predict what the hurricanes we already have will do just 24 hours from now! And after the Obamacare debacle, one would think Obama would be more hesitant to wag more computers at us to sell his agenda!

To President Obama: Let’s just assume for a moment we have a climate crisis

Despite clear evidence to the contrary, president Obama is now warning us that “storms like Hurricane Sandy will become more frequent as climate change intensifies.” It’s merely the latest in the administration’s seemingly endless stream of headline-grabbing scare stories, designed to justify the job-killing, economy-strangling, family-bashing rules for vehicles, power plants, cement kilns, refineries, factories, farms, shopping malls and countless other facilities that are or soon will be regulated by Environmental Protection Agency fiat. We need to keep one vitally important fact in mind.

Every one of these “looming calamities” is based on assumptions, assertions and computer models that represent the real world about as well as the special-effects T-rexes and raptors do in Jurassic Park. The data on hurricanes says otherwise:

Iran is Not Biggest Nuclear Cheater–Guess Who Is?

If you think Iran presents the greatest danger of nuclear war today, think again.

It is none other than the United States that has consistently violated the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty—and it’s these violations that are one of the main drivers of the spread of nuclear weapons and the threat of nuclear war across the world.

While some worry about inspecting Iran’s nuclear facilities, Americans should be pushing first for inspecting something nearer to home: the embarrassing and dangerous record of nuclear treaty violations committed by the US and its fellow nuclear states.

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

It was all a lie. Here is how it happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this in light of Obama's announcement yesterday that he is starting to tax carbon. Even though he uses the phrase "Climate change", the taxing of carbon is founded on the claim of carbon dioxide warming the planet.

No doubt Obama is having to rush this through as already we are seeing indications of another approaching harsh winter!

Ex-CIA executive director admits waterboarding is ‘torture’

The most senior CIA officer on record yet has said he’s “comfortable with saying” that waterboarding and related interrogation methods were “torture.” He was commenting on the post-9/11 “enhanced interrogation” tactics used by the Bush Administration.

The remarks by former executive director of the CIA, Alvin ‘Buzzy’ Krongard (2001-2004), were made to BBC’s Panorama. The third most senior former official at the agency was asked if he thought waterboarding and related tools amounted to torture.

“Well, let's put it this way, it is meant to make him (the suspect) as uncomfortable as possible. So I assume, without getting into semantics, that's torture. I'm comfortable with saying that."

Evansville, Ind. police cannot claim immunity after sending a SWAT team to search an elderly mother’s home when evidence suggested she had nothing to do with threats made against them, the Seventh Circuit ruled. On June 21, 2012, the Evansville, Ind. police conducted a search of Louise Milan’s home, one day after they found out that someone had been posting threats against police online using the home’s IP address.

Idaho Becomes First State to Have "Ag-Gag" Laws Ruled Unconstitutional by Federal Judge

By Joe Wright

Even though Ag-Gag laws have taken hold in seven states, it has not been a slam-dunk for the Big Ag industry and its supporters. State governors in Tennessee and North Carolina have vetoed initiatives, as have nearly 20 other states. However, Idaho is ground zero for what could indicate a complete federal overruling of any state where these laws appear...

Movie Studios Seek SOPA Power Through Broad Site-Blocking Order

Major movie studios are again trying to make a website they don’t like disappear without a trial. This time, the studios are asking for one court order to bind every domain name registrar, registry, hosting provider, payment processor, caching service, advertising network, social network, and bulletin board—in short, the entire Internet—to block and filter a site called Movietube. If they succeed, the studios could set a dangerous precedent for quick website blocking with little or no court supervision, and with Internet service and infrastructure companies conscripted as enforcers. That precedent would create a powerful tool of censorship—which we think should be called SOPApower, given its similarity to the ill-fated SOPA bill. It will be abused, which is why it’s important to stop it from being created in the first place.

Erdogan and Netanyahu Declare War

The rulers of the two most powerful authoritarian regimes in the Middle East are launching major wars to reconfigure the Middle East. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has declared war by proxy on Iran, announcing full-scale military mobilization within Israel (July 27 -29) and organizing the biggest political campaign of ultra Zionist Jews in Washington. The purpose of this two-pronged propaganda blitz is to defeat the recently signed US-Iranian agreement and start another major Middle East war. Ultimately, Netanyahu intends to take care of his ‘Palestinian Problem’ for good: complete the conquest and occupation of Palestine and expelling the Palestinian people from their homeland – the single most important foreign policy and domestic goal of the Jewish state. In order to do this, Israeli leaders have had to systematically campaign for the destruction of the Palestinians regional supporters and sympathizers – Iraq, Libya, Syria, Lebanon and Iran.

G4S, the controversial British-Danish private security firm, has come under fire for its long-term contracts with the Israeli government, which allows the company to profiteer from the Israeli apartheid, occupation and imprisonment of Palestinian political prisoners.Many of these prisoners are held without trial and subjected to torture at interrogation centres. G4S also provides equipment and services for illegal Israeli settlements, including screening equipment at military checkpoints.

Clinton aide may have 'delivered favors' for friends, IG finds

In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry Thursday, Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said an inspector general probe suggested Huma Abedin leveraged her State Department job to benefit her two other employers at the time: the Clinton Foundation and a consulting firm called Teneo Strategies.

Teneo Strategies was founded by a longtime aide to Bill Clinton, Douglas Band, and boasted the former president as a paid board member when it first launched in 2011.

Abedin allegedly sent or received more than 7,000 emails on her government account that involved Band, the letter said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Huma Abedin has been a close associate of Hillary for twenty years, is married to former Congressmen Anthony "Sexting" Weiner, and has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Huma has been joking (we hope) that Hillary will make her the "First Lady" on being elected President.

Report cites 'Latinization of U.S.,' warns of 'backlash' against whites

A study of the growing Hispanic immigrant population declares that the country is on the verge of the "Latinization of the United States," a "browning of America" that by 2050 will be 29 percent Latino — and politically influential.

Published in the authoritative journal "Ethnicities," the immigration analysis by two California experts noted that while big states such as California and Florida are home to most Hispanics, there has been a recent growth surge exceeding 300 percent of mostly Mexicans to Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina and Arkansas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article fails to mention that the vast majority of these Latinos are here illegally. But it does confirm one theory for the open-border/amnesty policy; to dilute Americans' sense of a national identity ahead of the dropping of the borders and the formation of a global government. This is also confirmed by comments such as that made by the University of New Hampshire that the word "American" is racist and should be banned!

American Oligarchy – 400 Families Represent 50% of Money Raised by 2016 Presidential Candidates Thus Far

Ever since I started this website in 2012, one of my primary objectives was to convince readers that the American system of government is nothing like what we are told in school and via the oligarch-owned mainstream media. That the country has become so captured and corrupted by sociopathic oligarchs, that a neo-feudal modern serfdom was emerging where the opportunities to enjoy rising standards of living for the vast majority of people was rapidly becoming a pipe dream.

I think many readers appreciated my warnings, but it wasn’t until an academic study from Princeton and Northwestern came out and factually proved it, that it become undeniable to many people.

A few sticking points, such as Americans’ insistence on strict regulations of patented prescription drugs, have caused other states to balk at the agreement, with Australia making the loudest protests over the lack of free trade agreements within the agreement.
