  • New airlines this year? Not likely

    New airlines this year? Not likely

    Obama Trade Deal Attracts China, Republicans
    Strange bedfellows of 2015: As the Obama administration pushes toward a major new trade agreement in Asia this spring, it is developing two unlikely allies — Chinese officials abroad, who are signaling that they want in, and Republicans in Congress,...
  • A day with Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker

    A day with Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker
    Penny Pritzker could have just walked by. But she didn't. U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell — her boss' archrival, the Kentucky Republican who will assume control of the U.S. Senate in January — was sitting there, behind a newspaper, waiting,...
  • 'Free trade' isn't what Trans-Pacific Partnership would deliver

    'Free trade' isn't what Trans-Pacific Partnership would deliver
    In principle, almost everyone's in favor of free trade. It promotes international harmony, raises wages, helps economies grow. It's an article of historical faith that the enactment of harsh protective U.S. tariffs in 1930 contributed to the Great...
  • U.S. abuse undermines treaties

    WASHINGTON - As images of American soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners spread to television sets around the globe, human rights organizations are increasingly concerned that a century of building steady support for international treaties banning torture...
  • Obama's bailout for the despots

    It's President Obama's worst bailout so far. He's going to rescue the U.N. Human Rights Council. Now admittedly, the council wasn't on the verge of going out of business. Heck, if there were a nuclear war, the pinstriped thugs of the United Nations'...
