    Thursday File 1-30

    Politics for this week is a bit murky, mostly from a STOU that focused on executive orders rather than legislation. This week's file includes Trade Promotion Authority as the primary DA. TPA is still possible, but Obama didn't do himself any favors by barely mentioning fast track in his SOTU speech, thus the uniqueness is not as strong as it was last week. While strong arguments against passage of TPA, especially since Harry Ried came out against the legislation yesterday.
    Immigration remains a strong option and there is momentum to pass. Although Obama didn't provide much support in the STOU address,, the House Republicans realize that passing some kind of immigration reform may be necessary for midterm elections. You should look out as to what happens later today regarding the House Republican's announcement regarding their immigration objectives. This may have an impact on the DA's uniqueness.
    Iran is possible, but the uniqueness evidence may be too good. There doesn't seem to be much hope for a vote to happen.
    Other possibilities including Debt Ceiling and Minimum wage are included, but do not seem to be viable possibilities for this week.

    Thursday File, January 2, 2014

    The first Thursday file for 2014 includes Immigration Reform and Iran sanctions as complete 1NC ready arguments. The file also contains evidence for extending unemployment benefits and midterms that could easily be developed into viable disadvantages. Your best bet for this weekend is probably immigration reform. There is new optimism that the House is willing to take up immigration when they get back to work on the 6th.
    This week's file is by Donny Peters, Assistant Director of Forensics at California State University Fullerton. Donny has coached many successful teams in CEDA and NDT at CSUF, Illinois State University, Wayne State University and West Virginia University.

    Thursday File 11/14

    Immigration is nearly dead, and is probably dead for the foreseeable future so I have created 2 possible replacements. First is the Employment Non-discrimination Act or ENDA. This is a bipartisanship da, not a political captial. ENDA is key to stop employment discrimination against those who identify as LGBT. Bipart is key to get the bill to the floor where the evidence is rather conclusive that there is a majority who will vote for the bill. The second DA is an Iran sanctions political capital da. The Obama administration is working on a deal for Iran to stop is nuclear weapons program. There is good reason to think this deal will be done by the end of the month. Both Democrats and Republicans are against providing any significant concessions to Iran, thus they are working on legislation to block Obama from lifting any sanctions and they plan to add more. So in the status quo they can't get sanctions passed, but Obama needs is political capital prevent passage. Plan takes Obama's capital away, sanctions are passed and no Iran deal. I have included the Immigration DA in case you do not want to give up on it. Finally, the file provides many uniqueness answers regarding Obama's ability to influence, or Congress getting anything done.
