    Huckabee Op-Ed: Our Political Class Failed On China, Time To Get Tough

    Nor have U.S.-China relations improved. The hallmark of the Obama-Hillary “pivot” to Asia was the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Obama sold the secret trade deal as a way to stand up to China. Now, the President admits that talks are underway for China to join ObamaTrade.
    China has reciprocated by:
    Launching cyber attacks against the United States, which may have compromised the personal data of 4 million federal employees this year alone;
    Spying on the free world, stealing industrial and military secrets on an unprecedented scale;
    Covering for North Korea and cashing in on lifted Iranian sanctions; and
    Pushing territorial claims to the brink of armed conflict in the South China Sea, where the U.S. Navy has protected sea lanes since WWII.

    Carly Fiorina: “Only One Woman Running for President pays Women as much as Men”

    Clinton’s current campaign is not the first instance of her paying women less than men. In her Senate office, women earned just 72 cents for each dollar earned by men.

    Despite being painted as a hypocrite on the issue by opponents, Clinton’s campaign has announced plans to ramp up its “war on women” language in key battleground states.

    Witkos: Capitol Connection: Back to School Changes on the Horizon

    Students may soon be exposed to more lessons on labor history and capitalism. For quite some time, lawmakers have been pushing to establish a labor history education requirement. This year, a law was passed to encourage Connecticut schools to teach labor history, but does not mandate it. The state Board of Education will make resources available to schools to support lessons about organized labor, collective bargaining, as well as the history and economics of free-market capitalism. But this won’t be a mandated requirement.

    Governor Malloy pursues “progress” at the expense of ethics on Mileage Tax

    Though the so-called “mileage tax” is still in the infancy of discussion and debate in Hartford – Connecticut citizens have strong reason for concern and outrage. This aggressive new tax initiative, secretly being discussed and debated in the halls of the Capitol by the Malloy administration and Democratic legislative leadership does nothing to address Connecticut’s skyrocketing expenditure costs, underwriting an ever expansive administrative and bureaucratic state.

    State Senator Boucher – ‘Mileage Tax’ Proposal: “Are they living in an alternate universe?”

    A proposal discussed by the governor’s Transportation Finance Panel to tax drivers for every mile they drive using GPS technology 24 hours a day, 365 days a year has instigated an incredulous response by the public. This public opposition is right on point. This is another tax residents simply cannot afford and this is not the direction Connecticut should be headed.

    State Senator Witkos: Another Unfunded Mandate Surprising our Towns

    The new policy change will require each COG to hire an elections monitor, pay them and provide them with office space, supplies and equipment. It’s something our towns don’t have the budgets to cover – and something we quite frankly don’t need.

    The monitor will oversee election moderators in each of the COG member towns and will be responsible for: 1) holding regional instructional sessions for moderators, 2) communicating with registrars of voters to assist with elections, recanvasses or audits, and 3) communicating with the Secretary of State regarding their instructional sessions. The monitor is completely subject to the secretary’s control and direction.

    Obituary: Connecticut Veteran John Puzzo

    It is with great sadness Ameriborn News Network has to publish this obituary for Hartford native John Puzzo. He had many titles. He was last perceived as an insurance and investment professional, but this was a minor view of the great man who served his country. Though he dedicated seventeen years to his work as a financial advisor with many well-known companies, such as Aetna, Citigroup and AMEX, to those who knew him, he was a seasoned Army veteran who participated in counter terrorism operations and the global war on terror.
