Senator Sessions: Top five concerns with trade promotion authority

Share

From Net Right Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Adapted from a statement at www.sessions.senate.gov

Congress has the responsibility to ensure that any international trade agreement entered into by the United States must serve the national interest, not merely the interests of those crafting the proposal in secret. It must improve the quality of life, the earnings, and the per-capita wealth of everyday working Americans. The sustained long-term loss of middle class jobs and incomes should compel all lawmakers to apply added scrutiny to a “fast-track” procedure wherein Congress would yield its legislative powers and allow the White House to implement one of largest global financial agreements in our history—comprising at least 12 nations and nearly 40

Time For Congress To Stop D.C.’s Anti-Gun Shenanigans

Share

by Bob Barr – at Citizen Action

Since the landmark 2008 Heller v. District of Columbia case, which Second-Amendment lawyer Alan Gura argued before the Supreme Court, anti-gun officials in the nation’s capital have spent every waking hour trying to avoid doing what the high Court ordered be done: allow District residents to exercise their right to keep and bear arms.

Gura has been fighting them every step of the way; and on Monday, was victorious once again, as a United States District Court granted his injunction to stop the city from requiring concealed carry permit applicants to demonstrate a “good reason to fear injury to his or her person or property or has any other proper reason for carrying a pistol.”

Glenn Beck Calls for the Repeal of Federal Drug Prohibition

Share

“I’m moving deeper into the libertarian realm,” says the talk show host.

by Jacob Sullum at Reason.com

Today on Glenn Beck’s radio (and TV) show, I debated marijuana prohibition with Robert White, co-author (with Bill Bennett) of Going to Pot: Why the Rush to Legalize Marijuana Is Harming America. The conversation turned to the war on drugs in general and also touched on federalism, the Commerce Clause, the nature of addiction, and the moral justification for paternalistic interference with individual freedom. Reading from my recent Forbescolumn, Beck said he is strongly attracted to the Millian principle that “the individual is sovereign” over “his own body and mind,” which rules out government intervention aimed at protecting people from

School district waves white flag, allows patriotic flags on student’s truck

Share

by Tom Balek at Watchdog

“There’s that truck again,” I remarked to my wife. I always had to smile when I saw the black GMC ride by with the big flags flapping in the wind.

Peyton Robinson, a senior at York Comprehensive High School in York, S.C., has been driving his truck around our end of York County with two large flags attached to the bed – an American flag and one that honors military servicemen and women who have been taken as POWs (prisoners of war) or are MIA (missing in action).

On Wednesday, May 13, he was pulled from class and sent to meet an administrator in the parking lot, where he discovered his flags had been removed and placed in the bed

The IRS Seized $107,000 From This North Carolina Man’s Bank Account. Now, He’s Fighting to Get It Back.

Share

by Melissa Quinn at the Daily Signal

For most of his life, Lyndon McLellan has been in the business of country stores—the types of stores where the employees know customers’ names by heart and workers remain loyal for years and years.

His parents owned a general store and grill, and McLellan began helping out there at the ripe old age of 9. Then, 14 years ago, McLellan decided to try his hand at the family business and purchased his own store in the heart of the Bible Belt, naming it L&M Convenience Mart.

Business has been good for McLellan, and though L&M, located in Fairmont, N.C., began as just a convenience store and gas station, he’s since expanded it to include a restaurant that serves

Watchdog Podcast: Breaking the Bank–Public workers are new American royalty

Share

by Eric Boehm at Watchdog

Breaking the Bank is Watchdog.org’s weekly look at the national public pension crisis, how it’s affecting state and city budgets and what can be done — if anything — to fix it.

In this week’s episode, hosts Eric Boehm and Steve Greenhut take a step back from the usual number-crunching and budget-busting to ask a sociological question: are America’s highly-paid public sector workers a new form of royalty?

Okay, they’re not going to be wearing crowns anytime soon, but there’s a noticeable and growing class divide between government employees and everyone else. It’s a situation that has been worsened by the public pension system, which taxpayers must pay into but don’t get much in return.

Make sure you don’t

The Bait-and-Switch Behind Economic Populism

Share

The following article written by Nicolás Cachanosky is an excellent summary of the paper “Macroeconomic Populism” written by Rudiger Dornbusch and Sebastián Edwards. Not only do the four stages of populism identified by Dornbusch and Edwards apply at a national level, they also seem to apply on a local level.

These four stages can been seen in our local governments including Emmaus, Lower Macungie Twp., East Penn School District, and even Lehigh County. When fiscally responsible majorities have been in control, they have instituted policies that allowed these local levels of government to become financially sound with either no debt or extremely low amounts of debt while supplying the excellent services the public demands. By focusing on providing required services at cost competitive rates, funding
