Ted Cruz Didn't Disclose Loan From Goldman Sachs for His First Senate Campaign | 13 Jan 2016 | As Ted Cruz tells it, the story of how he financed his upstart campaign for the United States Senate four years ago is an endearing example of loyalty and shared sacrifice between a married couple. "Sweetheart, I'd like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign," he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed. But the couple's decision to pump more than $1 million into Mr. Cruz's successful Tea Party-darling Senate bid in Texas was made easier by a large loan from Goldman Sachs, where Mrs. Cruz works. That loan was not disclosed in campaign finance reports.

Iran Seizes U.S. Sailors Amid Claims of Spying | 12 Jan 2016 | Two United States Navy patrol boats and their crews were seized by the Iranian authorities in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday during what a Tehran news agency alleged was "snooping." ...The semiofficial Fars news agency in Iran said that the boats had illegally traveled more than a mile into Iranian waters near Farsi Island, the site of a major Iranian naval base.

High court orders Florida to overhaul death penalty decisions | 12 Jan 2016 | Juries, not judges, should be the ones to impose the death penalty in Florida, the U.S. Supreme Court decided on Tuesday in a ruling that will force lawmakers in Tallahassee to scramble to revamp how the state metes out sentences for murder.

In 2016, let's hope for better trade agreements - and the death of TPP | 10 Jan 2016 | The US concluded secret negotiations on what may turn out to be the worst trade agreement in decades, the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and now faces an uphill battle for ratification, as all the leading Democratic presidential candidates and many of the Republicans have weighed in against it...In particular, the ['investment'] chapter gives foreign investors the right to sue governments in private international tribunals when they believe government regulations contravene the TPP's terms (inscribed on more than 6,000 pages)...Furthermore, a "most favoured nation" provision ensures that corporations can claim the best treatment offered in any of a host country's treaties. That sets up a race to the bottom - exactly the opposite of what US President Barack Obama promised.
