ALG's Daily Grind - So goes retail... 


August 15, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds granted. 

So goes retail
So goes retail, so goes the economy. Well, retail growth is doing worse now than it was during the first three months of the year, and this time there's no cold spell or snow to blame. 

The Giver movie shows the Left's egalitarian consequences
The Giver shows a world without choice. Is that where we're headed now?

Another boring August?
Instead of engrossing articles detailing how the Democrat voting miners in the Minnesota's Iron Range are going to have to reconcile Senator Al Franken's anti-mining stance with their almost knee-jerk support for Democratic Party candidates and what that means for the majority, we have puff pieces and exposes on Hillary Clinton.

Street: China appears ready to dump its U.S. treasury bonds
Lombard Street Research: "For a long time the threat that Beijing might sell US Treasuries rang hollow, but no longer. Growth trouble across the Pacific may have a much bigger impact on US yields in 2015 and 2016 than the expected pace of US central bank tightening."

VA actions kill veterans: A precursor for Obamacare?
CNN: At least 40 veterans died waiting to see a doctor at the Phoenix Veterans Health Care System, and that the bureaucrats in charge had created a secret list of patients who were determined to be too ill to help, so they denied them care and allowed them to die.

Johnson-Crapo housing finance bill leaves taxpayers on the hook
Read the bill: "The full faith and credit of the United States is pledged to the payment of all amounts from the Mortgage Insurance Fund which may be required to be paid under any insurance provided under this title."

Manmade 'climate disruption'—the hype and reality
President Obama and White House advisor John Podesta are convinced that Congress and the American people have no power or ability to derail the Administration's determination to unilaterally impose costly policies to combat "dangerous manmade climate disruption."

Stockman: Why China will implode
"It's a monumental building aberration, not an economy."

WTO Rules against China’s Export Restrictions: Implications for U.S. NatGas Export Debate

The World Trade Organization (WTO) confirmed Wednesday that China’s policies restricting exports of rare-earth minerals violate global trade rules. In light of the WTO ruling, the quantitative restrictions on liquefied natural gas exports advocated by Dow Chemical, America’s Energy Advantage (AEA), and the American Public Gas Association (APGA) are plainly illegal.

CEI Today: Net neutrality, China's global warming, and Obama's recess appointments

Forbes: Court Rules Against Net Neutrality In Verizon V. FCC


Today the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled against Internet at the Speed of Government.

Or more precisely, the court ruled against so-called “net neutrality” in Verizon v. FCC .
Net Neutrality. Proponents of the concept seek to prohibit what they see as preferential treatment and differential pricing on the Internet.

Alas, the Agency may, according to the court, still “promulgate rules governing broadband providers’ treatment of Internet traffic.” The court agrees with FCC’s stance that oversight “will preserve and facilitate the ‘virtuous circle’ of innovation that has driven the explosive growth of the Internet.” So FCC is not likely to give up without fighting for itself.

CHINA'S GLOBAL WARMING  - WILLIAM YEATMAN UN’s Top Climate Diplomat: Communism Is Key to “Doing It Right” on Global Warming

The People’s Republic of China is the #1 greenhouse gas emitter (having only recently raced past the U.S. to the top of this list), and last week the country’s government ordered a huge increase in coal production. Nonetheless, the Middle Kingdom is “doing it right” when it comes to climate change, according to Christiana Figueres, the top climate diplomat at the United Nations.

You might think to yourself: “What’s China’s secret for ‘doing it right’ (despite all those emissions)?” The answer, according to Figueres, is the absence of civil liberties. > Read more

OBAMA RECESS APPOINTMENTS - TREY KOVACS U.S. Supreme Court Justices Seem Skeptical of Obama’s NLRB Recess Appointments


On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning. Their ruling will determine whether the president may bypass the Senate to make recess appointments when the Senate is still in session.

Thankfully, after the oral argument, a consensus emerged among the Supreme Court Justices that seems to infer that Obama’s imperial presidency does have some limits. And hopefully this means that the Supreme Court will decide that the president does not have the power to determine when the Senate is and is not in session.

CEI’s Battered Business Bureau: The Week in Regulation

The first full week of 2014 was a light one, despite more than 1,500 Federal Register pages. The number of new regulations was about half the usual number, and none of them meet the $100 million per year “economically significant” threshold.



ALG's Daily Grind - Beyond whimper, little Republican response to filibuster demise


Nov. 27, 2013

Beyond whimper, little Republican response to filibuster demise
The GOP's ineffective response to Reid's nuclear option illustrates perfectly why Senate Republicans are receiving so many primary challenges nowadays.

The UN global warming hoax is slowly dying
The real aim is to transfer wealth from the developed nations to those less developed. It was never about saving the Earth from a global warming; that was a lie from start to finish.

Harry Reid kills minority rights in Senate
The minority is now irrelevant.

Schiff: Ben's rocket to nowhere
"A deputy governor of the People's Bank of China said that buying foreign exchange reserves was now no longer in China's national interest. The implication that China may no longer be accumulating U.S. government debt would amount to the 'mother of all tapers' and could create a clear and present danger to the American economy. But the story barely rated a mention in the American media."
