Lindsey Graham won’t vote for Trump or Clinton in 2016


Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Donald Trump’s most outspoken Republican critics, says he will not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton for president this year.

Saying he thinks the Republican Party has been “conned,” Graham told CNN Friday that he and Trump don’t share the same beliefs.
“I don’t think he’s a reliable Republican conservative,” Graham said, just hours before former 2016 rival Jeb Bush also declared he would not vote for Trump. “I don’t believe that
Donald Trump has the temperament and judgment to be commander in chief. I think
Donald Trump is going to places where very few people have gone and I’m not going with him.”
Graham’s comments sparked a scathing response from Trump, who called him a “poor representative and an embarrassment to the great people of South Carolina.”
Graham said Trump lost his confidence when the billionaire businessman criticized Arizona Sen. John McCain for being a captured during the Vietnam War and accused former President George W. Bush of lying to Americans about the Iraq War. Graham also cited Trump’s compliments of Russian President Vladimir Putin, spending thousands of dollars to find out if President Barack Obama was born in Kenya and linking Sen. Ted Cruz’s dad to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination as some of the front-runner’s other wild ideas.

Obama Calls on Sen. Paul to Drop Objections to Tax Treaties


President Barack Obama on Friday called on Sen. Rand Paul to drop his “quirky” objections to pending international tax treaties so they can move forward in Congress.

Obama said the treaties will help U.S. authorities investigate and crack down on offshore tax evasion.

Paul has argued that they would infringe on Americans’ constitutional right to privacy because their tax data and personal financial information would be shared with other countries. Treaties cannot go into force unless ratified by the Senate, and the objection of any one senator halts action on legislative business pending in that house of Congress, as Paul has done in this case.

“I’m calling on the Senate, in particular Sen. Rand Paul, who’s been a little quirky on this issue, to stop blocking the implementation of tax treaties that have been pending for years,” Obama said at the White House, while promoting new financial rules to force companies to disclose more information about their owners.

STUDY: ‘GLOBAL WARMING’ ACTUALLY MAKING WEATHER BETTER


022416sunrise

But four out of five Americans are experiencing far better weather now than they did forty years ago thanks to global warming, according to a new study.

Researchers say because of this most US citizens believe global warming is beneficial – but they also warn the good weather is not going to last.

Winter temperatures have risen substantially throughout the US since the 1970s, but at the same time, summers have not become more uncomfortable.

2016: The Year the Americans Found out Our Elections Are Rigged


The 2016 election has been a wild ride, with two insurgent grassroots campaigns literally giving the political establishment a run for its money. But as the events of this presidential primary season play out, it’s becoming clear the U.S. election — and even more so, the presidential race — is a big scam being perpetrated on the American people.

Events from the last week have exposed the system as an illusion of choice and a farce. They have reinforced at least one study showing the U.S. is an oligarchy rather than a democratic republic.

The Wyoming democratic caucus took place on Saturday, purportedly to allow voters to have their voices heard in the race between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Sanders lost the Wyoming caucus by winning it with a 12 percent margin.

Wait, what?

How does one lose by winning 56 percent of the votes? This happens when the political process is, according to the New York Post, “rigged” by superdelegates. The Post summed up this “strange” phenomenon:

“[U]nder the Democratic Party’s oddball delegate system, Sanders’ winning streak — he has won seven out of the past eight contests — counts for little.

SENATORS QUIETLY STICK GREEN ENERGY SUBSIDIES INTO FAA BILL


harry-reid-money

South Dakota Republican Sen. John Thune worked with Democratic Sens. Bill Nelson of Florida and Ron Wyden of Oregon to get lucrative tax subsidies for things like wind power, fuel cells and geothermal heat pumps much to the chagrin of conservative groups.

“We’re disappointed that consistent support exists among Senators to extend corporate welfare to the so-called ‘green energy’ industry. It’s unfortunate to see lawmakers sneak these provisions through the backdoor using unrelated must-pass measures — especially only months after extending major wind and solar subsidies in an end-of-year deal,” Christine Harbin, director of federal affairs at Americans for Prosperity, said in a statement.

Conservatives are furious with Thune and others who want another bill extending green energy tax credits after passing a massive $680 billion tax package in December that included a slew of green energy subsidies — including a $23.8 billion investment tax credit for building solar panels.

23 Percent Of Americans In Their Prime Working Years Are Unemployed


Unemployment-Public-Domain-460x325

Did you know that when you take the number of working age Americans that are officially unemployed (8.2 million) and add that number to the number of working age Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force” (94.3 million), that gives us a grand total of 102.5 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now?  I have written about this before, but today I want to focus just on Americans that are in their prime working years.  When you look at only Americans that are from age 25 to age 54, 23.2 percent of them are unemployed right now.  The following analysis and chart come from the Weekly Standard

Clearly, we have never recovered from the impact of the last recession.

But let’s try to put these numbers in context.

Below, I would like to share two charts with you.  They show what has happened to the inactivity rates for men and for women in their prime working years in the United States in recent years.

In order to be considered “inactive”, you can’t have a job and you can’t be looking for a job.  So this subset of people is smaller than the group that we were talking about above.  The 23.2 percent of Americans in their prime working years that are unemployed right now includes those that are looking for a job and those that are not looking for a job.

These next two charts do not include anyone that has a job or that is currently looking for a job.  These charts only cover “inactive” people in their prime working years that are not considered to be in the labor force.

As you can see in this first chart, the inactivity rate for men in their prime working years exploded higher during the last recession and then continued to go up even after the recession supposedly ended.  At this point, it is hovering near all-time record highs.  Does this look like an “economic recovery” to you?…

“There are 124.5 million Americans in their prime working years (ages 25–54). Nearly one-quarter of this group—28.9 million people, or 23.2 percent of the total—is not currently employed. They either became so discouraged that they left the labor force entirely, or they are in the labor force but unemployed.This group of non-employed individuals is more than 3.5 million larger than before the recession began in 2007,” writes the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.

WHEN ROBOTS TAKE OUR JOBS, SHOULD EVERYONE STILL GET A PAYCHECK?


021016robot

But tech anxiety got a fresh jolt last month when the White House sent out a Council of Economic Advisers report including a projection that people making less than $20 an hour have an 83 percent chance of eventually losing their jobs to a robot. The odds for those earning up to $40 an hour are more than 30 percent.

Not that most Americans would find that very surprising. According to a Pew Internet Survey released last week, more than two-thirds of Americans think that within 50 years, most jobs will be done by robots or computers—although the vast majority conveniently thought that won’t happen with their own jobs.

Trump’s riot prediction outrageous, Ohio Governor Kasich says


f10b301f-6550-4a71-be47-3673623e8d1e

“When he says that there could be riots, that’s inappropriate,” the Ohio governor said during an interview, which will be broadcast on Sunday.

“While we have our differences and disagreements, we’re Americans. Americans don’t say, ‘Let’s take to the streets and have violence,'” he stated.

Trump, who has never held elected office, is leading the Republican race and has so far won 19 primary contests. Ted Cruz has won contests in eight states while Kasich has only clinched victory in Ohio.

Trump won in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Hawai, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, the Northern Mariana Islands, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Vermont.
