Cuba’s China Policy

Gee. I wonder if the Pope knows this:

The Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation reports from Havana that 1,618 Cuban dissidents were arrested during the first four months of 2015. The Washington Examiner

His Holiness has probably moved on to solving other major political issues…like “climate change”?

Apparently, Mr. Brooks is seeking a lucrative gig with one of Obama’s big money supporters, maybe something with George Soros, or he’s aiming for a new career in standup comedy.


Why yes Mr President, the dog’s name is “Brooks.”

How this pathetic connoisseur of pants creases was ever thought by anyone to have any credibility is an enduring mystery. As a columnist for the NY Times, of course, he’s never needed any.  From Tom Blumer at News Busters:

David Brooks: ‘Obama Has Run An Amazingly Scandal-Free Administration’

Union Hypocrisy: National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA)

Although the union-funded Raise the Wage campaigned so vociferously in favor of a $15.25 minimum wage, unions are seeking exemptions from the higher wages for their members. The exemption, or escape clause, would allow them greater strength in organizing workplaces. Unions can tell fast food chains, hotels, and hospitals that if they agree to union representation, their wage bill will be substantially lower. That will persuade employers to allow the unions to move in. . . .

Once the higher minimum wage bill is signed into law, with the exemption for unions, then organizing becomes a win-win for employers and unions. Unions get initiation fees of about $50 per worker and a stream of dues totaling 2 percent to 4 percent of the workers’ paychecks. Employers get a lower wage bill.

The losers in this scheme are employees, who have to pay union dues out of their paychecks. Jobs become more scarce as wage levels rise and some less-skilled workers become unemployed.

 . . .  Do not expect municipalities with Democrat governments elected with these donations to stand in the way of union hypocrisy.   Source: Diana Furchtgott-Roth, “Why Unions Exempt Themselves from Hard-Fought Minimum Wage Hikes,”

    I was gonna say people probably burst out laughing the second David said this, but I watched the video and see that he said this on “PBS.” And nobody batted an eyelash! Two things:
    1. Why would he make such a stupid statement when he knows its not true? He has written and I have literally watched him talk about these scandals over the years on Fox. Was he just playing to the audience?
    2. Why haven’t the Republicans cut the funding to PBS and NPR? They used to talk about it but now I don’t hear a peep. Free Democrat Party propaganda is all they are. I was listening tot NPR the other day and they pumping Bernie the Socialist up while tearing down all the Republicans. Make these idiots pay for there own crap.
