As a former Canadian, Sally C. Pipes knows from where she speaks. Her new book The False Promise of Single--Payer Health Care artfully spells it all out. 

While analysts believe a government takeover of the U.S. health care system has never looked more plausible. Support for the idea is at an all-time high, according to Gallup. Two-thirds of Democratic voters favor “single-payer” health care; even one in four Republicans is on board. But take a look at the United Kingdom's single-payer system, for instance, which is in appalling turmoil. Most would agree that it would be foolish to import that failed model.
In The False Promise, you’ll learn:
• What “single-payer” really means;
• That if single-payer were to take hold in the U.S., private insurance coverage would be outlawed;
• That 160 million people - roughly half the population - would lose their private employer-based coverage;
• About the single-payer nightmares in the UK and Canada;
• That the supposedly “free” care offered by countries like Canada comes at an extremely high cost;
• About “illegal” private clinics in Canada where one alone performs 60,000 surgeries per year on patients who choose to pay for their own care; and
• That the Canadian single-payer system doesn’t cover dental care, vision care, long-term care, or prescription drugs as many of the current proposals in the U.S. cover.

The UK’s NHS (National Health Service) has rationed care for decades. But wait times and delays have gotten markedly worse in recent months. The NHS recently canceled 55,000 non-urgent operations in order to cope with heightened demand during the winter flu season. Some hospitals have also cancelled urgent procedures for patients with conditions like cancer and heart disease. Last month, nearly 15 percent of emergency-room patients had to wait more than four hours to be seen by a physician.
Furthermore, in 2017, the NHS announced that anyone who was overweight or a smoker would be denied nonurgent surgery - rationing, pure and simple. Other recent policies required patients to be in varying degrees of pain, while some clinical commissioning groups had imposed bans on surgery for several months to save money.
To call this situation "universal healthcare," as single-payer defenders always do, is simply absurd. In 2017, the average wait in Canada from seeing a primary care doctor to getting treatment by a specialist was 21.2 weeks. No amount of money can fix a system in which government bureaucrats, and not markets, determine how to distribute healthcare resources. And Canada and the UK aren’t outliers; whenever governments try to overrule the laws of supply and demand, the results are rationing, shortages, and runaway costs.

Frosty has bicycled around the traveling to over 100 countries and 6 continent. And he's returned with a message. Over population is a major threat to the world and the US. If things keep going the way they are we'll have over 438 million people by 2050. The third world is adding 80 million people per year. The numbers are absolutely staggering and unsustainable. Our 35 most populous cities will double within 30 years. California will have nearly 60 million people. Frosty believes the problem can be solved if we all become aware.

John R. Lott joined us again for a look at the Parkland massacre. While it's nice to believe that with the simple passage of a law, such events will never happen again; the reality is quite different. John first proposed arming school officials back in 1998 and was met with universal shock and alarm. Even the NRA opposed it. What a difference 20 years can make. The absence of firearms, the definition of a gun free zone, only makes such targets more attractive. It's time to wise up.

Another case of life imitating FSN. We predicted round 2 of the Trump tax cuts in December 2017, long before anyone else! And sure enough, Trump has done it, he's doubling down on success. The legacy media just doesn't understand how he works. And hopefully they never will. 

Q anon (the intelligence insider who has make nearly 1000 posts) has been busy at work. Even if half of what he says isn't true, which has not been the case, there's some amazing things happening. Could FBI Deputy Director McCabe be part of a plan to purge the deep state? Can we really trust Sessions and Wray? What's going to happen next? 

Finally, there's a Frito-Lay shortage in NYC due to another globalist plot to screw the working man. PepsiCo cut driver pay by 1/3 and can't understand why they're quitting in droves. Bean counters should be forbidden from managing anything other than a lemonade stand. Don't get us wrong, some of our best friends are accountants, but their role should be to make sure financial controls are obeyed and to count the left over beans at the end of the year. That's it!

Having helped grow several billion dollar companies while at Sequoia, Warren Hogarth knows exactly what separates good companies from great ones. Now, as a founder, he's quite literally putting his skills to the test in building Empower - a personal finance app recognized by Time Magazine as one of the Best Apps of 2017.

Warren says that the ultimate goal, explains is to have Empower be able to fully replace your bank’s app.“ We want to help you take action to get ahead – without you having to exit the app, go to your bank app, remember you password, move money around…[with Empower] from one place, you have control of everything,” he says. 

And over 200,000 current app users seem to agree.

MORE Great News for America...

  • explains why the polls in 2016 were wrong and why presidential approval ratings and other polls are still wrong today;
  • predicts the end (the complete shutdown!) of the Democratic Party in the near future;
  • predicts the split of the Republican Party into two parties – the Conservative Party and the Republican Progressive Party; and
  • predicts the coming of an era of conservative enlightenment that includes four big religious and cultural trends in America:
    • Return to faith in God
    • Renaissance of reason
    • Restoration of education
    • Rebirth of morality, freedom, peace and prosperity


According to Dr. Lameiro, it’s an exciting and hope-filled time to be alive. Rather than lamenting dismal times ahead as many pundits do, he argues persuasively that America has entered a new conservative era. He predicts that there will be a rebirth of morality in government; that we will see a return to more individual freedom; that we will witness peace with other nations as well as peace within America, resulting in a level of economic prosperity greater than ever before seen in the history of the world. 


MORE Great News for America brings us up to date on where America stands using Dr. Lameiro’s long-range presidential election models to include his latest dynamic electoral models. And his ever-growing radio audience appreciates that Dr. Lameiro avoids the jargon of specialists, preferring to speak in direct, straight-forward, and commonsense language.


In his previous book, “Great News for America,” Dr. Lameiro made ten bold and surprising predictions - nine of which have already come to pass. Building on his solid track record, in MORE Great News for America, he makes eight new, powerful predictions that will no doubt shock many readers and experts alike, which include some stunning revelations about the political parties and their future viability; the actual upcoming Congressional elections; the makeup of the new House of Representatives and Senate; and the outcome of the Trump agenda. He also looks ahead to the upcoming 2020 presidential election with an early forecast that might surprise many people who follow the conventional wisdom.

Al Caicedo believes that there's probably more good economic news on the way. There's always variables and unknowns, but with real unemployment at 8.1%, there's plenty of room for better numbers. Wage growth has been slow, but the workforce participation rate has been ticking up. With a tight job market, wages could start going up. The tax cut should be putting more money in workers pockets. As always there's winners and losers, but there are certainly more winners than losers. Corporate tax cuts should lead to higher wages and more jobs. How will they use that money?

Jordan believes that we're in the midst of a trade war. Is China in a better position than the US? We will soon see. Mexico and Canada are making noises, but they're not in a position to win. The US has all the leverage. The tax cuts have had a very positive impact on the economy. Small business is booming. Big corporations are getting the windfall and higher cash flow. Corporate buybacks are flourishing. Because the business tax cuts are permanent, there's confidence in the future. But the debt continues to grow. And interest rates will rise. This puts investors in a bind, especially if you're invested in long term treasuries. But there's help on the way. Get ready for Phase 2 of the Trump Tax Cuts.

According to attorney Noel H. Flasterstein, the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., has thrust gun rights into the midterm campaign, scrambling traditions in both parties as the debate shifts toward firearms restrictions.

Polls show solid support for stricter laws, especially after mass shootings. But there is also deep disagreement, staunch opposition and growing disenchantment with gun control. Why and what is the next step?

Martin Armstrong is still bullish on the stock market. Europe is still in trouble. Draghi isn't abandoning QE so quickly. He's trapped and so is the Euro. There's a big bet against the Euro taking place as witnessed by the German Bund spreads. There's a huge crisis in the offing. And it's worldwide, the US and Europe and elsewhere. They need a minimum return of 8% and there's few opportunities to get it. Forget government bonds, they're a guaranteed loser. The ECB owns more than 40 percent of all government debt. Therefore, it's impossible to cover future pension debt. Compared to the ECB, the Fed looks like it knows what it's doing.

The bull market is turning 9 years old. Had we known we would have baked a cake. It is now the longest running bull market in history! What could possibly go wrong. The tree will surely grow to the sky. And as if that wasn't enough, corporate debt levels are surging. But don't worry, this time is really different because it's not being held by big banks, ETF's and pension funds will be left holding the bag. But everything will work out fine, nothing can go wrong, go wrong, go wrong.

Live every day as if it would be your last, for one day you're sure to be right. This is my all-time favorite quote from the classic movie Breaker Morant. Our schedule for the next week or two will be sporadic. My sister is in hospice now, her days are few. Grieving can be an incredible learning process and can be quite liberating. For one thing, it puts things in perspective. How can we be upset over minor disturbances in life, especially when we consider how short our lives truly are? We really don't have time for it. The time to find peace in your life is now! When the people you love get to this point, you realize the absolute triviality of so many of life's events, the pointlessness of petty resentments and much of our anger. The time is always now and there's always a reason you need to trudge on, regardless of how hopeless things may seem. Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers.

Raghee Horner believes that there's huge profits to be made trading the energy sector. A lot is going on there. The U.S. will overtake Russia to become the world’s largest oil producer by 2023, accounting for most of the global growth in petroleum supplies, a top industry monitor said Monday.

U.S. crude production is expected to reach a record of 12.1 million barrels a day in 2023, up about 2 million barrels a day from this year, said the International Energy Agency, which advises governments and corporations on industry trends. American oil output will surge past Russia, currently the world’s largest crude producer at about 11 million barrels a day.

The IEA’s closely watched five-year forecast showed the U.S. hitting new strides in its oil and gas boom, helped by technological advances, improved efficiency and a fragile recovery in oil prices that is encouraging shale companies to ramp up their drilling. Once heavily dependent on imports from the Middle East, the U.S. is getting closer to achieving its goal of producing enough crude to meet domestic demand for refined products like gasoline.

Of the 6.4 million new barrels of oil that will be pumped every day between now and 2023, almost 60% will come from the U.S., the IEA said.

American influence on global oil markets is also expected to rise, with U.S. oil exports more than doubling to 4.9 million barrels a day by 2023, according to the IEA. Until 2015, the U.S. didn’t export any crude oil by law, but in five years it is expected to be among the world’s biggest exporters.

President Trump's recent imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs will have unforeseen consequences. Are subsidies the preferred method of addressing the issue of these declining industries? John believes that a trade ware will endanger the economic recovery. A better move for these workers to do a big infrastructure program to put these rust belt residents back to work. What do we do to shut off that giant sucking sound of American jobs heading to Mexico? 

The tax bill will cost the Republicans some seats in the house come the mid-terms, however, it's a real plus for the economy. Will steady wage increases be the result? Let's wait and see.

The Trump tax plan is already showing benefits. Companies are bringing jobs back to the US. This should result in higher productivity and therefore higher wages, which will no doubt lead to higher consumer prices. In fact, we're already seeing that happen. Regulatory roll-back is well underway. Dodd-Frank will be receiving a long awaited overhaul, something both parties have agreed upon. The stock market is an open question and it remains to be seen where it will go in the next few years.

Lew Weiss is critical of the Trump trade tariffs on steel and aluminum. US trade policy needs a more considered and thought out approach. Prison labor cannot solve the problem. Rather, Lew believes that government policies that encourage American manufacturers to export are the answer. Exportation of products is often a daunting challenge for even the most experienced exporters such as Boeing. For a small company it's often insurmountable. Bringing back tax favored status for exporters would be a real plus and an immediate shot in the arm.

In "Killing the Deep State," Corsi unmasks the powerful players who pull the real strings in Washington, proving it makes no difference proving that no matter who you voted for, who sits in the Oval Office or who controls Congress.

Among the incredible revelations in "Killing the Deep State" are:

"The Smoking Gun" - irrefutable digital evidence of "the amount of anti-Trump hatred at the leadership of the FBI and DOJ during the election and afterward."

Barack Obama's ties to the Deep State and how he continues to "pull strings" and orchestrate efforts to undermine the President Trump at every turn.

How Deep State operatives turned FBI director James Comey's firing and the Robert Muller probe into a Trump hunting expedition with "with virtually unlimited scope, unlimited completion deadline, and unlimited funding."

Bombshell evidence that the Russians were not involved in accessing the emails of John Podesta, chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

The identity of the U.S.-based terror group spearheading anti-Trump efforts - an evil group that equates law enforcement with fascism and racism, yet is championed by the mainstream media.
Sample Questions:

What is "The Deep State" and how does it control America?

What are some clear examples of how The Deep State has exerted its power and influence in the past 30 years?

What are Barack Obama's ties to the Deep State and how does he continue orchestrate efforts to undermine the President Trump at every turn?

Why should Americans be concerned about The Deep State? And who is Q anon what is [he] doing about it?

Marc Morano says there's plenty of polar bears and their number has actually been increasing. Marc is much more concerned by less freedom. More regulation. Higher costs. Make no mistake: those are the surefire consequences of the modern global warming campaign waged by political and cultural elites, who have long ago abandoned fact-based science for dramatic fearmongering in order to push increased central planning. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change gives a voice -- backed by statistics, real-life stories, and incontrovertible evidence -- to the millions of "deplorable" Americans skeptical about the multibillion dollar "climate change" complex, whose claims have time and time again been proven wrong.

According to Jordan, bond yields are the key. Gold has been going up with long term bond yields. As they've gone up, so has gold. Just like gold, long term bond yields are set to break out. All the requirements for a major metals advance are in place. It just requires a little time and a catalytic event. Maybe it's a major increase in inflation, higher bond yields or any other number of factors. Then the move we've all been waiting for will take place.

As with all laws, the new Tax Bill has unanticipated results, especially if you're a Baby Boomer. Some of the money will go back to productive assets and investment. Boards will be under pressure to put cash to work to achieve a higher rate of return. Baby boomers who are retiring at the rate of 10k per day will be positively affected, if they're invested in equities. The equities bull market will be prolonged. Since many Boomers will be living well into their 90's, traditional investment planning has to change. That could very well mean taking more risks to achieve a higher return. But it will come at a cost.
