  • Here's the List of Powerful Companies Cutting Off Trump and His Supporters After Capitol Siege

    The list is getting longer of corporations cutting ties with President Donald Trump and his friends and allies because of the January 6th incursion of the US Capitol Building. A huge Save America rally supporting the president was held at the Ellipse. The four hour long rally with multiple speakers culminated with the president’s more than hour long speech and a planned march to the U.S. Capitol Building for an apparent rally there. Inside, the Congress was discussing the results of the Electoral College vote. Allies of the president attempted to forestall the certification of the election by asking for...

    Recipients of PPP loans have filed for bankruptcy after the money ran out.At least a Half Billion in PPP Loans Won't Be Repaid Hundreds of companies employing 23,400 people went Bankrupt after PPP Funds Ran Out.The total number of companies that failed despite getting PPP loans is likely far higher. The Journal only analyzed the big borrowers from the program, which accounted for about half of the overall loans though only about 13.5% of the total participants. And many small businesses simply liquidate when they run out of cash rather than file for bankruptcy.The SBA has only released data on...

    The blunt trauma sustained by so many parts of the US economy due to the pandemic has hit many employers. As a result, one in three companies (35%) now say they have reduced their projections for pay raises next year relative to what they were originally expecting just a few months ago, while half have stuck to their original salary hike targets. That's according to a new survey of more than 700 US companies from employment advisory firm Willis Towers Watson. On average, companies now expect to raise salaries for non-executives by an average of 2.6%, down from the 2.8%...

    WASHINGTON—A rising number of Chinese companies are considering delisting from U.S. stock exchanges as Washington increases its crackdown on foreign companies that fail to comply with U.S. audit standards. Chinese online travel giant Ctrip is the latest company reportedly exploring going private. The company has held early-stage talks with a number of investors including private equity firms and tech companies about funding its delisting from Nasdaq, Reuters reported. If the deal goes through, Ctrip would join other companies that are considering delisting from the U.S. exchanges, amid growing tensions between the United States and China. China’s largest online classifieds platform...
  • The Company Human Resource Department Will Become the Far Left's Fifth Column and Destroy the American Workplace

    I worked in Human Resources for 15 years. You may think this is the group that processes payroll and plans the company picnic. However, when I entered the profession, it was becoming a differentiating factor. The performance management model at General Electric had become a strategic advantage. The focus of my graduate program was measuring and maximizing human capital. Saying human capital is a dirty word now. However, at that time, it was viewed as the ability to measure the knowledge, skill, productivity, skill, and potential of individuals in the workforce. Then the goal was to translate that information into...

    Antifa is an umbrella term to describe radical left-leaning militant groups that typically confront neo-Nazism and white supremacists at demonstrations. People associated with Antifa have been present for significant demonstrations and counter-demonstrations over the last three years, sometimes involving brawls and property damage. Trump and members of his administration have singled out Antifa as being responsible for the violence at protests triggered by the killing of Floyd. The main question remains where did Antifa and BLM get their funds from? Little is known about who funds Antifa activists, or how the groups get their resources. Antifa is not a single...

    Before becoming the president of the United States, Donald Trump was one of the most well-known real estate moguls in the world. Thanks to years of making lucrative deals, he has amassed a net worth estimated to be $3.5 billion. The Trump Organization LLC acts as the primary holding company for Trump's array of companies and is his primary source of wealth. Before his inauguration in January 2017, it was announced that Trump would step down as Chairman of the Trump Organization and have his sons run the company. Specifically, Donald Trump Jr. was to manage the newly created trust,...
  • One trillion dollars have flowed into the American economy as Trump’s tax law changes allowed companies to repatriate profits without tax penalty

    American Thinker ^ | 12/27/2019 | Thomas Lifson
    President Trump’s tax reform has delivered more than a trillion dollars of stimulus to the American economy through corporations repatriating profits held overseas in order to avoid penalties that the tax law had imposed on bringing home the funds earned abroad. Bloomberg reports: Corporations have brought back more than $1 trillion of overseas profits to the U.S. since Congress overhauled the international tax system and prodded companies to repatriate offshore funds, a report showed Thursday. (snip) Investment banks and think tanks have estimated that American corporations held $1.5 trillion to $2.5 trillion in offshore cash at the time the law was enacted. Before the overhaul,...

    In the highly competitive race to get self-driving cars to the market, most companies hold their secrets close. But when it comes to helping those cars figure out where they are on the road, some experts are ready to open up. Argo AI, based in the Strip District, and Aptiv, based in O’Hara, publicly released some of their own data sets earlier this year in an effort to further advancement in the field. The companies shared parts of their own maps of cities where they are testing self-driving cars, including Pittsburgh. That may seem strange considering the abundance of applications...

    Several groups that often are at odds over environmental rules are on the same side when it comes to easing methane regulations at oil and gas sites. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection joined major oil and gas companies, environmental groups and lawmakers from both parties last week in urging the Trump administration not to go through with its proposal to eliminate methane control requirements from well sites and pipelines across the country. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing to roll back rules adopted in 2016 that require companies to identify and stop methane leaks from new and modified...

    EBay Inc., the online auction company with 180 million buyers around the world, earned $34 million of profit in Florida in 2014, according to state auditors. At Florida’s official corporate income tax rate of 5.5 percent, eBay should have paid more than $1.8 million in state taxes -- enough money to hire 40 new teachers. But records show eBay actually paid $18,810 -- not even enough to hire one. It’s not an isolated example. Auditors say Sanofi Pasteur Inc., one of the world’s largest vaccine manufacturers, earned an estimated $55 million of profits in Florida between 2008 and 2013 --...

    The Tampa Bay Times ^ | October 25, 2019 | Lawrence Mower
    LECANTO — When Florida lawmakers signed off this year on a bill creating more than 300 miles of toll roads, they did so with scant evidence the project was needed. More than five months later, after Gov. Ron DeSantis signed it into law and the project has been vetted in two rounds of public hearings, local officials are growing frustrated by the persistent lack of details about what would be the largest expansion of Florida’s toll system in decades. “We’re beating a dead horse right now before it’s even born,” said Dixie County Commissioner Mark Hatch, who sits on a...

    The recent controversy about China’s public censure of the NBA has opened American eyes to the longtime practice of many U.S. companies bending over backwards to appease the Chinese government, lest they face the financial cost of losing business in overseas markets.When the NBA apologized on Monday for the Houston Rockets’ general manager’s pro-Hong Kong tweet, and China retaliated by prohibiting broadcasts of NBA preseason games played in the country, Americans on the left and the right were united in anger that a U.S. institution would abandon principles so quickly for the sake of their wallet. But in reality,...

    Well, it’s really not just some of our Senators. It’s more than half of them. Some fine investigative work by Sludge in partnership with the Guardian has produced a deep dive into the investment portfolios of United States Senators and their spouses, finding troubling alignments between the companies they are profiting from and the ones they are charged with overseeing. Does that sound like it should be illegal to you? Would you be terribly shocked if I told you it wasn’t? ( Fifty-one US senators and their spouses have up to $96 million invested in corporate stocks, raising conflict...

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was one of the earlier 2020 candidates to propose breaking up the largest tech companies and potentially having the government regulate them like utilities. It’s a mantra she’s repeated on the campaign trail on a regular basis. But now she’s doubling down on the message with a campaign tactic that may not make the most sense. Her team has put up a massive billboard on the subject, which isn’t all that unusual for a political campaign. It’s the location that makes it peculiar. She put it up right in Silicon Valley near many of the Big...

    The red-blue divide has a big impact on Americans' views of companies, with only two — Wegmans and Publix Supermarkets — appearing on the top 10 list of favorite companies for both Democrats and Republicans, according to an Axios-Harris Poll survey of corporate reputations. The big picture: People's political views lead them in different directions. Democrats favor the Kraft Heinz Company, while Republicans like Chick-fil-A. But they agree more on the companies they hate — because bad performance affects everyone.
