Should We Blame Trump for the Christmas Mosque Burning?

How the TPP Undermines the Constitution

Curtis Ellis, Obamatrade/American Jobs Alliance joins Thom. The full text of the Transpacific Partnership - or SHAFTA as I like to call it - was released early in November. There wasn't much coverage of the agreement before the text was released - but between Donald Trump's outrageous campaign and the fact that it's the middle of the holiday season - news about the agreement has completely fallen out of the public eye. But the agreement hasn't disappeared - and opponents are still fighting to get the message out that this deal would be a massive corporate handover that would ship more jobs overseas - and also undermine our democracy and American sovereignty. And according to some critics - the consequences of this agreement would go far beyond trade - it could fundamentally alter how Americans are able to express themselves under the first amendment. According to Curtis Ellis - executive director of the American Jobs Alliance - a boycott of the Beverly Hills Hotel that happened last year would technically be illegal under the TPP. That's because the hotel is owned by the Sultan of Brunei - and the Sultan would be able sue the United States in a special international court for damages caused by a boycott - according to provisions in the TPP.

Are the Koch Prison Reforms Only Helping Executive & White Collar Crimes?

The internet rejoiced when Shkreli got arrested - but the simple fact is - even if he's convicted for securities fraud - he'd likely spend way less than even 5 years in jail. And if the Koch brothers get their way and push through their version of "criminal justice reform" - he might not even face that much of a penalty. The Kochs have gotten lots of praise for their efforts to reform the criminal justice system - but a new report from the Center for Media and Democracy spells out exactly who the Kochs are trying to help out with their justice reforms. And the fact is - this is nothing but an effort to make it harder for white collar criminals and corporate executives to be held accountable for the actions of their company. Here to discuss the Koch brothers efforts to pass so-called "criminal justice reform" - and why this is nothing but a thinly veiled effort to protect themselves and their friends - is Brendan Fischer - General Counsel for the Center for Media and Democracy.
