  • Where Trump is seen as saviour

    The British Broadcasting Corporation ^ | July 23, 2017 | Valeria Perasso, Social Affairs correspondent
    Jamestown, Tennessee, is one of the poorest towns with a majority-white population in the US. The area overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump and locals believe new jobs will now come - but will that be enough to turn around decades of economic distress? Nine years after his plumbing company collapsed at the height of the credit crunch, Clint Barta is feeling confident enough to start again. "It's only been days, so it's a bit slow," says Barta who has been in the business for 33 years. "But I'm meeting with a builder tomorrow." The plumber had to lay off 75...

    US Defense Watch ^ | July 23, 2017 | Ray Starmann
    The US military is on an endless kamikaze run into oblivion, intent on destroying itself and seemingly unconcerned about putting the national security of this nation in peril. Yes, you heard it here. The leaders of the US military are so concerned with political correctness that they don’t give a damn about the defense of this nation. The latest bit of lunatic social engineering was reported by CNN yesterday. A woman will train with other potential officers this summer in hopes of becoming the first female Navy SEAL. The candidate, a midshipman, and another woman have enlisted as the first...
  • States vie for Foxconn display panel factory

    The Mining Journal ^ | July 23, 2017 | David Eggert, The Associated Press
    LANSING — Taiwanese electronics maker Foxconn’s plan to build a display panel factory in the U.S. has sparked a flurry of lobbying by states vying to land what some economic development officials say is a once-in-a-generation prize. It’s not just jobs that are up for grabs — possibly 5,000 alone at the plant and potentially thousands more at other unspecified U.S. operations the company intends to launch. Luring Foxconn to build the country’s first liquid-crystal display factory would signal that the Midwest, which has hemorrhaged manufacturing jobs in recent decades, can diversify into again producing high-tech consumer gadgets often assembled...

    The Cecil Whig ^ | July 23, 2017 | Brad Kroner
    NORTH EAST — The Amazon fulfillment center in Principio Business Park originally projected to hire 700 people, but the company recently expanded its job openings to 1,000, according to recruiters manning the company’s tent at the Cecil County Fair. The growth occurs as the company expands its offerings. Last month, the e-commerce giant bought the Whole Foods company. Wages for fulfillment positions will range from $15 to $33 an hour, based on experience and performance. Chris Moyer, county director of economic development, and Bruce England, executive director of the Susquehanna Workforce Network, first confirmed the news at a Republican Club...

    Former Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Fla) is in the midst of deciding whether or not to cooperate with DC police investigating possible violations of national security laws by her former top information technology (IT) aide, Imran Awan. Awan and several of his relatives are accused of abusing access granted by their Democratic Party employers to obtain and sell classified information. Thus far, Wasserman-Schultz has been refusing to turnover computers used by Awan so police can examine them. She has claimed exemption from law enforcement saying that "according to the Constitution, members of congress are privileged from arrest....

    The Columbian ^ | July 23, 2017 | Julie Watts and Darla Helt
    In the super-charged public debate on health care, many advocates are rightly calling attention to the importance of protecting the health needs of people with disabilities. But for many in Southwest Washington who are living with a disability — and for their families — having health insurance coverage is just one part of the struggle. Severe and chronic disabilities are often associated with a significant decline in earnings. For families with children who have disabilities, for example, parents are often forced to step back from work to care for their child — making it even more difficult to shoulder high...

    The cannabis industry could have a notable economic impact, if the U.S. federal government stays out of the way. Investors are always on the lookout for fast-growing industries, which means there's no surprise why marijuana stocks have been such strong performers over the past year. Far more pot stocks than not with a market cap of at least $200 million have doubled or tripled in value over the past year. Optimistic growth figures for the industry are seemingly everywhere. Aside from the fact that a record number of Americans surveyed by Gallup and CBS News want to see cannabis legalized...

    The U.S. should NEVER put itself in that position. The Brits sent their civilian boaters to save them. Destroyers and most planes were left behind to 'save England.' Make sure the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is always filled. Get the hell out of the Middle East with no more immigrints from that region. The Brits should get out of the Falklands. They have bigger fish to fry. Maybe we should al store food like the Mormons. My history teacher, retired military, said Hitler should have bombed them all on the beach. Cost him the war.

    IWB ^ | Pamela Williams
    Now lets look at John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. He and his brother, Tony, own the Podesta Group. The Podesta Group is on Saudi Arabia’s payroll. In fact, they are listed as a foreign agents for Saudi Arabia. They are tight with Clinton, as they have held fund raisers for her in Tony Podesta’s home….and, of course, everyone knows John Podesta was her campaign manager and her close family friend. Lets talk first about John Podesta’s situation, and while we are talking, we must ask ourselves, “how Clinton got away with this?” We must also ask ourselves, “what if...

    President Donald Trump plans to use anti-terror law to avoid undergoing a years-long environmental impact study for a large section of a border wall that is expected to travel through a wildlife refuge, Reuters reported Friday night. Trump will use a 2005 anti-terror law created shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack to sidestep an environmental impact study for a 32-mile portion of the border wall, sources told Reuters. The proposed section will pass through the 2,000-acre Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge near the southern tip of Texas. The area is home to 400 species of birds as well...

    From California to London, the tech giants are employing top architects to build spectacular symbols of their immense global power. But they have their critics… We know by now that the internet is a giant playpen, a landscape of toys, distractions and instant gratification, of chirps and squeaks and bright, shiny things – plus, to be sure, ugly, horrid beasties lurking in all the softness – apparently without horizon. Graphics – rounded corners, lower case, Google’s primary colours, Twitter’s birdie, Facebook’s shades of blue – enhance the innocence and infantilism. It is a world, as Jonathan Franzen once said, “so...

    Perhaps Antifa should be classified as a domestic terrorist organization. They may be a bunch of basement-dwelling losers, but according to a report by The Daily Caller, an Antifa website includes information and encouragement for committing violent, illegal activities: A website called It’s Going Down, which calls itself a “platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist and autonomous anti-capitalist movements” showed up on our radar during the riot that shut down Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at UC Berkeley in February this year. As I previously detailed in a Heat Street report, the website features a variety of materials that promote violence against supporters...

    It’s time for Republicans serving in Washington to get over obsession with reelection, get out of denial that business as usual is acceptable, and recognize that we are engaged in spiritual and political warfare to save the country Who would have ever thought that the United States could face a coup attempt against its duly elected President? But for all intents and purposes that’s what’s going down. It’s a derivative of an old-fashioned, third world banana republic mob-style coup that is brewing against Donald Trump. It matters not that there is a lack of substance to the charges of Russian...

The latest ‘minority’, granted sweeping special favors by uber politically correct governments, trannies are no longer just cropping up in school bathrooms and locker rooms, their props are now copied by terrorists on the run.

    A CSPAN viewer by the cowardly-anonymous handle of "Evil Bastard" Tweeted the following to the Washington Journal program regarding the Robert Mueller-Special Counsel investigation of "Russian collusion" with the Trump 2016 campaign.

    Surely, if Islam is making any one statement, its most glaringly evident message is "NO TRESPASSING ALLOWED ON ISLAM!" As some are speculating, I will also guess that Officer Mohamed Noor, after hearing what might have sounded like a shot, may have believed Justine Damon had a gun in her hand as she leaned toward the squad car in her pajamas. If that was the case, his allegedly firing the shots that killed the unarmed Australian woman was simply the worst of judgments in the presence of panic. In saying all that, I’m straining - times 10 - to give...

    Perfect timing-rattle their cages big time . His confirmation hearings would be right in the heat of the election season, articulating the GOP positions that the cowards in our party won't defend. What are the Democrats gonna do? There's more: When the election is over Cruz has the option of DECLINING the job, starting a new set of hearings, pissing off and exposing OUR turncoats. It all starts with an orchestrating meeting between Trump and Clarence Thomas-payback. LMFAO.
