Douglas County Republican Roger Edwards plans to announce Wednesday that he’s challenging U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman in next year’s GOP primary, charging the five-term incumbent with paying lip service to conservative priorities and using “identity politics” to divide residents of the battleground 6th Congressional District, he told Colorado Politics.

Introducing a panel of foreign policy and national security experts convened on Thursday, Feb. 16, to sort out the impact of President Donald Trump on global security, moderator Samuel Rascoff recalled remarks — possibly apocryphal — attributed to Zhou Enlai on the occasion of President Nixon’s groundbreaking 1972 visit to the Chinese mainland. Asked what he thought about the French Revolution, the Chinese premier is supposed to have replied, “It’s too soon to tell.”

Do you care about the quality of your food and where it comes from? If you do, and you should, it is time to be concerned about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement. The TPP, like other trade deals before it, is being sold as a boon to the American agricultural industry. But the real track record of these agreements tells a different story. In reality, the Pacific trade pact represents a major, ongoing threat to American food processing workers, family farmers, ranchers, fisherman and consumers. Nearly every trade deal since the North American Free Trade Agreement has promised to stimulate the U.S. agricultural industry. The unfortunate truth of these agreements is that they flood American grocery stores with cheap and low-standard foreign meat imports. Not only is this bad for our families, it puts U.S. farmers, ranchers and workers at a significant disadvantage as they struggle to compete with countries who pay workers mere pennies per hour.
