Group Info

The group mainly about American politics so if you have an interest into this you are allowed to submit art about American politics. Occasionally I will create debates by using the blog.

Rules for posting art:
1. It must be yours.
2. The artist must put it to the folder that he/she has political views in.
3. It must be about politics.

Note: There is an issue with uploading art to just ask me if you want to upload art and I will request it for you to accept.

Guidelines for the debates:
1. Bad language is not encouraged. We want to keep this as clean as possible.
2. Try no to hate on other users, example: "You fascist fool! You have no life!" If you have no evidence that he has no life and you keep saying that then you are a hater.
3. Try not to just disagree with something and leave it with that, when typing a comment add details on why you disagree with it. Example: "I disagree with liberals because...."
4. Try not to be a conspiracy theorist or a hippie. I have personal reasons for this.

The administration's announcement Friday that it will extend its Keystone XL pipeline review, further postponing a final decision on the controversial project, has drawn bipartisan outrage from Capitol Hill lawmakers.

The apparent stalling over whether to approve the crude oil conduit -- which supporters say would create jobs and boost the country as an energy leader, and opponents say would harm the environment -- figures to be a feature in this year’s midterms, as states eager to exploit their energy resources also happen to be hosting Senate races that could help determine the balance of power in the chamber.

The reason cited by the State Department for needing more time for its review is litigation in the Nebraska Supreme Court over the proposed route of the pipeline in that state.

Friday’s announcement placed a particular spotlight on the Senate’s Energy Committee chairwoman, Mary Landrieu, who is facing a tough re-election bid in Louisiana this fall. Landrieu’s committee post is a key selling point of her campaign, and Republicans hoping to flip her seat are using the delay to spotlight her apparent lack of clout with the administration.

Landrieu has pledged to use her chairmanship to push the White House on this issue, and called the latest decision “nothing short of an indefinite delay of the Keystone pipeline.” The administration, she said, “is sending a signal that the small minority who oppose the pipeline can tie up the process in court forever. There are 42,000 jobs, $20 billion in economic activity and North America’s energy security at stake.”

But Republicans campaigning against the three-term lawmaker argue that the delay indicates she has little influence on administration decisions. National Republican Senatorial Committee Spokesman Brad Dayspring tweeted: “Tell me again how Mary Landrieu being Chair of Energy Committee is good for Louisiana & energy industry?”

The delay gives the president more time -- possibly until after the midterm elections -- to decide the fate of the project, which has put him between his environmentally friendly voter and donor base and vulnerable red-state Democrats like Landrieu.

Some lawmakers signaled they would go around Obama if necessary, which would then put Majority Leader Harry Reid in a tight spot between his at-risk members and the party base.

“I’ll keep pressing the Administration for a clear timeframe for the pipeline, as I did just last week with 10 other Democratic Senators,” North Dakota Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp said in a statement. “But because of this latest delay tactic by the Administration, I’ll continue to seriously consider other available options for approval.”

I have a small question, as I am not American, but I'm so-so intrested in American politics. Is it okay to upload art about politics of other countries? Just asking.

Well, just on a quick glance in the gallery, I have spotted materials on the Pope and chavez of Venezuela, so I'd say go for it!

Hi, 

For three years, a group of some 600 multinational corporations and trade associations have been quietly negotiating a trade pact IN SECRET that could void American laws that protect workers, jobs, health, and the environment. During negotiations here last summer, news leaked of some of the provisions U.S. trade officials were prepared to approve, and a public outcry derailed the talks. Trade Representative Ron Kirk resigned. Now that Michael Froman has been confirmed as the new U.S. Trade Representative he is pushing to renew "fast track" authority so President Obama can sign the agreement first, and then force a quick vote in Congress without any public scrutiny, floor debate, or revisions. 

Rep. Keith Ellison has called TPP "the largest corporate power grab you've never heard of." Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, (who happens to share my name!) is one of just four U.S. Senators who voted against Froman's confirmation this summer. She said of TPP, “I have heard the argument that transparency would undermine the Trade Representative’s policy to complete the trade agreement because public opposition would be significant.” Warren explained, “In other words, if people knew what was going on, they would stop it. This argument is exactly backwards. If transparency would lead to widespread public opposition to a trade agreement, then that trade agreement should not be the policy of the United States.” 

The only TPP language made public was leaked in 2012 and shared by Public Citizen. Since then trade officials have kept a tight lid on the negotiations, only recently allowing members of Congress to view (not copy) the text, which remains "classified." Among the most disturbing revelations in last year's leaked TPP language, that seems to be mirrored in the Atlantic version as well: Foreign companies would have "preferred status" – granting them greater rights within our borders than our own companies enjoy. U.S. companies would have more incentives to offshore jobs, and foreign companies would not be bound by the minimum wage and could sue the U.S. if our health, safety, or environmental regulations interfered with their profits. Jurisdiction over such suits would rest not in the hands of elected officials or judges, but with an international business tribunal. Their decisions, which would be binding upon all member nations, would supersede our own laws – including our Constitution. 


That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate, which says:

"The White House and the U.S. Trade Representative are urging Congress to abdicate some of its power over approval of trade agreements by renewing "fast track" authority. Fast track would allow the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership to leapfrog customary legislative protocol and be put to a rapid "up or down" vote without a public hearing, floor debate, or amendments. Forcing Congress to vote on an agreement this complex without adequate time for open hearings, review, and public scrutiny, sets a dangerous precedent. Congress, we urge you: just say NO to fast track!"

What's your take on Obama breaking laws?

Isn't it paradoxical, how the people most hungry for power are always the ones least capable of using it responsibly?

Yeah. Exactly. Now, he wants to legalize illegal aliens. Wait, they break the law coming over here, jumping fences into people's land (farmers), do other stuff and then want rewards? There is a boarder, and there are ways in. Unless they are fleeing for war, not sure what to do. If we legalize them who will teach them English to read our signs to drive?
