The Working Class & Trade

There’s no question: the working class decided the election. Stupid trade policies, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership, was a major factor in voters' trust in the candidates to work for their economic well-being. They believed Trump more than Clinton. CPA's Republican members are joyous. CPA's Democratic members are devastated. The electoral counts show the extent to which Dems are reeling from the loss of their prior working class constituency, where Trump gained them, and the absolute necessity for both parties to cater to the economic well-being of the working class by, among other things, fixing trade. [more...]

Hollywood Helps Fuel Election Mischief

Some big-name Hollywood celebrities, along with political pouters of all persuasions, recently joined forces with 2016’s Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in hopes of pulling off an election redo. Although President-elect Donald Trump won a decisive victory in the 2016 presidential election, many of Hillary’s supporters and those in her Hollywood fan base are stubbornly refusing to accept the election results. Now some celebrities are attempting to use social media accounts to try and persuade fans and followers alike to sign petitions, make telephone calls, and donate cash, all in an effort to support a recount in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

Castro Was Not a Freedom Fighter

The Left is almost in as much mourning for Fidel as it was for JFK and MLK. The same Left loons that called Trump a dangerous man, a bigot, a homophobe, a xenophobe, is calling Fidel Castro a revolutionary, a freedom fighter, and someone who will be revered for bringing education and social services to the Cuban people. They’re gushing over a man who has had THOUSANDS of people killed simply for not agreeing with him; he has killed, by firing squad, over 3,500 people. He also executed people for fleeing Cuba by raft. Are these people serious? [more...]

Oil Producing Countries Hold Their Breath

Wednesday marks the 171st OPEC Meeting, which takes place in Vienna, Austria. This is one of the more significant meetings for members of the Organization for the Petroleum Exporting Countries as tensions grow worldwide to control oil production and stabilize oil prices. For more than two years, a downward pressure on oil prices was caused by an oversupplied global market in need of higher demand. The imbalance of supply and demand sent prices down from a high above $105 per barrel to a low of $27 per barrel. Since oil’s low in the winter of 2016, prices have recovered and are trading around $50 per barrel, but are still off 50 percent from previous levels. In September, a deal was reached among OPEC members to cap output at 32.5-33.0 million barrels per day - slightly lower than the current level of production. A move like this would prop up oil prices and regulate supply. [more...]

The Fix for Our Ailing Healthcare System

The stated intention behind Obamacare was to improve the healthcare system. However, it has become apparent that the changes implemented were based on incorrect assumptions: 1) that having health insurance equals access to quality affordable healthcare; 2) that central planning via government regulations and mandates could be used to control costs; and 3) that the behavior of doctors and patients could be controlled by implementing rigid practice guidelines (i.e., value based medicine, care driven by algorithms instead of physician judgement) and increasingly shifting the cost of healthcare to patients leading them to self-ration by pricing them out respectively. The end result has been an increase in healthcare costs, decreased competition among insurance companies with monopolies in some states, and a decrease in both primary care and specialist physicians. Whether you like Obamacare or not, an honest assessment would conclude that it is simply not sustainable. There is, however, a solution. [more...]

Will the Uber Left Prevent Trump from Becoming President?

The uber left appears to be working overtime to block Trump from becoming the 45th President of the United States of America. Will protests, riots, violence, threats and intimidation to presidential electors, and recounts in key states prevent Trump from becoming president? Will conspiracy narratives gain enough traction to hand the election over to Clinton? Will Clinton accept a Trump victory? What is the purpose of the recount effort? What happens if no candidate gets 270 Electoral votes on December 19th? [more...]
