NAFTA Negotiations - A Chance to Rethink Trade and the Role of U.S. Law

We filed our official NAFTA renegotiation comments with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative two days ago urging that the U.S. should not be afraid to walk away from NAFTA if an agreement that substantially improves economic and job outcomes for the U.S. cannot be achieved. USTR will hold a hearing on the administration's NAFTA renegotiation plans on June 27th. CPA is pleased the U.S. Trade Representative is thoroughly rethinking NAFTA and trade agreements in terms of trade deficits and growing U.S. production and jobs rather than simply achieving ‘free trade.’ Our testimony includes the newest thinking on the causes of our poor trade performance and stagnation. We recommend a focus upon unilateral American action on currency and tax reform which, according to the data, have the greatest potential to benefit our economy and employment. [more...]

U.S. Fruit & Vegetable Imports Skyrocket After Trade Agreements

Our research shows that fruit and vegetable agriculture has been drastically harmed by NAFTA and other trade agreements. This is surprising to many who believe that agriculture industry uniformly supports trade deals and opposes reform. In fact, trade in many fruit and vegetables has been disastrous for U.S. agriculture and American farmers over the last two decades, following ratification of free trade agreements, notably those with Mexico (NAFTA), Central America (CAFTA), and Chile. In many cases, soaring levels of imports have been accompanied by little or no increase in exports. [more...]

Comey’s Misspeaks

James Comey told Congress under oath that Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff forwarded “hundreds of thousands” of e-mails to her husband’s laptop. (Even I winced at that statement believing it to be in error. Tens of thousands? Yes. Hundreds of thousands? NO!) He said it was an “incredibly painful” decision to go public with news that Clinton’s e-mails were found on Anthony Weiner’s computer. Mrs. Clinton claimed it was one of the reasons she lost the election, and that it wasn’t her fault. The FBI then scrambled to cover for Comey by issuing the following statement in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee... [more...]

“One Down, 216 to Go”

We need to have a national dialogue about left-wing extremism. What happened yesterday was not the lone act of an unhinged gunman, but the "Resistance" terrorism that the left and their Democrat useful idiots have been championing. The left is a terrorist organization. And its media hate machine's goal has been to churn out the likes of James T. Hodgkinson, the Bernie Sanders volunteer and Elizabeth Warren supporter, who tried to murder Republican members of Congress. And the machine is still going. [more...]

A Great Act of Diplomacy by Trump/Tillerson

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced Tuesday that North Korea released Otto Warmbier, a University of Virginia undergraduate student, who had been serving a 15-year prison term with hard labor since March 2016 for allegedly trying to take a propaganda banner. According to Warmbier's parents, their son was medically evacuated from North Korea in a coma, which he has reportedly been in for over a year after falling ill to botulism and then being given a sleeping pill. Only this month did U.S. officials learn that Warmbier was in a coma. President Trump then promptly put into motion the process enabling Warmbier’s safe return to his family in Ohio. [more...]
