Washington’s Secret Agendas

The public fell for the lie that the Taliban in Afghanistan are terrorists allied with al Qaeda. Americans fought a war for 13 years that enriched Dick Cheney’s firm, Halliburton, and other private interests only to end in another Washington failure.

The public fell for the lie that Saddam Hussein in Iraq had "weapons of mass destruction" that were a threat to America and that if the US did not invade Iraq Americans risked a "mushroom cloud going up over an American city." With the rise of ISIS, this long war apparently is far from over. Billions of dollars more in profits will pour into the coffers of the US military security complex as Washington fights those who are redrawing the false Middle East boundaries created by the British and French after WW I when the British and French seized territories of the former Ottoman Empire.

The American public fell for the lies told about Gaddafi in Libya. The formerly stable and prosperous country is now in chaos.

The Candidates for Governor stance on water policy

 

I have been doing a series of posts this year about Arizona’s water security. In Looming water shortage requires action to conserve water, I argued that “Water conservation policy should be a central issue in every legislative campaign this year.”

The Arizona Republic today published a series of reports on water policy, including “Water scarcity is one of Arizona’s most serious, ever-present problems,” Innovators challenged over Arizona water scarcity, and this opinion by Linda Valdez, If you wait for a water crisis, it’s too late. What she said.

There is also this breakdown of the candidates for governor stance on water policy. How governor hopefuls would handle water:

Today, we focus on water policy. …Arizona is likely to experience a shortage of water, sometime after you’ve left office. What specifically would you do to prepare?

GOP/REUBLICAN/TEA PARTY… DUCEY … Ducey: In many respects, Arizona is a model for the rest of the country on best practices for water management. It is critical that the next governor continue the good work of those that have come before, prioritizing long-term planning needs.

In the short-term, I believe improvements in our forest management will help improve our water supply. When our forests are too dense, the canopy effect keeps the water from getting to the ground and too much debris on the forest floor absorbs what water there is. The result is less water making it to our lakes and aquifers.

 

Holy crap! Trees cause drought? This is the single most stupid thing someone has said since Ronaldus Magnus claimed that “trees cause more pollution than cars do.” Trees cause pollution – RationalWiki. “Drought (noun) a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall; a shortage of water resulting from this.” Drought is not caused by tree canopy or forests absorbing water. Our forests are dying due to drought conditions and a shortage of water.  Just, Wow.  ….Continue reading

As usual, Republicans are in corporations’ pockets. Dem Senate candidates should hammer them for it.

 

Last week, the Obama administration issued new regulations to limit corporate tax inversions. This maneuver, as our own Joan McCarter explained, is "the practice of corporations buying subsidiaries in foreign countries, then renouncing U.S. citizenship to get out of paying U.S. taxes." In other words, another scam by big money to stick the rest of us with the tax bill they should be paying. When Burger King announced plans for such a move last month, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said they’d "abandoned their country" and called for a boycott. Damn straight.

On the one hand, we should applaud the White House for taking action, but the problem is that regulatory changes alone aren’t enough to do the job. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) noted: "The administration wanted to go as far as they legally could, but they’re very careful." He referred to the changes as "a good effort," but added "the only real way to stop inversions is legislative." Schumer urged Congress to craft a stricter definition of inversion and enact a ban on "earnings stripping."

Earnings stripping? You’ll love this. Earnings stripping refers to a practice by which a foreign-based parent corporation loans large sums to—wait for it—itself. How? By loaning, on paper, the money to one of its own U.S. subsidiaries. Then the corporation gets to deduct the interest it is paying—again, to itself—and cancel out, dollar for dollar, taxes on profits it owes our government.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) called for legislation that would solve the problem for good "before this growing wave of inversions erodes our nation’s tax base." And why hasn’t Congress passed such legislation? You guessed it, congressional Republicans have blocked it over and over again,saying they are waiting for "comprehensive tax reform." Right on cue, we have Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) complaining that President Obama’s move on inversions will "take the pressure off for tax reform." Bear in mind that Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI)—who, by the way, also slammedthe White House’s action last week—proposed just such a comprehensive tax reform plan in February. What happened? House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) dismissed it, replying "blah, blah, blah," (I’m not kidding, check the link) when asked about its specifics. Now is the time for Democrats—especially those in tight Senate races—to call out their Republican opponents on the issue of tax inversions.

I’ll explore strategy and tactics more beyond the fold. Please follow me.
