Here's What Americans Think Of The 2016 Campaign Logos
It is just two weeks into the 2016 Presidential campaign and Democrats have ceded their nomination to Hillary Clinton. They better hope that she and Bill have good answers to the questions that are going to be coming their way. We could be in for a long year.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch at long last won the first round of battle with the GOP with her confirmation. But it's only the first round. There are three reasons for their continuing war on her.
Lest you think the TPP is too commercially complex to bother about, think again. This mega-treaty is the latest corporate coup-d'état that sacrifices the American consumer, labor and environmental standards and much U.S. sovereignty to the supremacy of corporate commercial trade.
Since 2008, three major coal ash disasters have threatened lives, livelihoods and water quality in Virginia, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Tennessee, including the largest toxic waste spill in U.S. history. Communities across our country near leaking coal ash ponds and landfills can wait no longer.
I shouldn't be giving advice to the President since he is on the other side of this Fast Track/TPP fight, but I will anyway: Mr. President, you are badly hurting yourself by escalating this fight with the progressive community over trade.
As Christians, we are called to love our neighbors. The Bible tells us to welcome strangers in our land and to love them as we love ourselves. That's why the media and all Americans should immediately stop referring to our undocumented brothers and sisters as "illegal."
From the point of view of the administration, Blumenauer is an extremely rare commodity: a House Democrat who supports the Ryan-Hatch fast track legislation.

The Herald's disclosures about the way for-profit colleges have ripped off students and taxpayers, while buying influence with powerful politicians, are too many to recount, but here are just a few bites to tempt you.
It's one thing to reject the polls, as Jindal often does. It's another to dismiss the big picture entirely.
Over the past nine months, the FBI has arrested five African Americans suspected of sympathizing with ISIS. These arrests necessitate an examination of why some African Americans might be drawn to violent extremist groups.
While I love to write about clean energy solutions, Appalachian transition and coalfield regeneration, and the inspiring regenerative city movement, to ignore the deadly impacts of mountaintop removal and coal mining is a betrayal to the residents living on the front lines of coal mining mayhem today.
President Obama is willing to commit military resources to back up the Saudi war on Yemeni rebels. But when it comes to their war on women, like every U.S. president before him, the Supreme Commander is missing in action.
The sad reality is that the United States government remains the country's largest low wage job creator. All those Senators tromping through New Hampshire promising to rebuild the middle class are part of a Congress that doesn't pay the workers who serve them enough to lift a family out of poverty.
Mexico is facing significant domestic as well as international pressure over its record on human rights in recent years. The issue has come to the forefront following an investigation by the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Juan E. Méndez.
This day, when girls were seen and heard, changed many lives, as I've come to know through the years. The program also brought about an amazing bond between fathers and daughters who spent the day in the place where those dads spent most of their waking lives.
Letting the provisions sunset would send a broader message that, after more than a decade in which national security could be invoked to justify the unconstrained expansion of virtually any government power, Americans are committed to restoring common-sense limits on the government's national security powers and requiring that our intelligence agencies operate without disregard for privacy and civil liberties.
Incidents of child abuse are reported every 10 seconds, and each day five children die from child abuse. Around 3 million reports of child abuse are made each year, involving 6 million children. It's an epidemic that we must do more to confront.
