Craftsmen Production Returning To US

Craftsmen Production Returning To US — The business section of yesterday’s (May 17) The Wall Street Journal had some good news we haven’t seen mentioned in other outlets.

Stanley Black & Decker Inc. is moving its production of Craftsmen wrenches from China to Fort Worth, Texas. It will employ 500 persons to make 10 million wrenches and 50 million sockets annually. Robots and fast forger presses will boost output about 25 percent above the older machines they used in the PRC.

A March 25 screen shot of recent stories in the Wall Street Journal concerning auto manufacturing expansion.

GM will invest $300 million in the plant. The reason for the switch given by GM CEO Mary Barra is President Trump’s pledge to end NAFTA and replace it with the still-to-be-ratified U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement.

In-Q-Tel Is CIA Venture Fund

ZeroHedge.com back on Jan. 12 carried a fascinating article on In-Q-Tel, an influential venture fund started in 1999 that sits on many Wall Street boards. It was instrumental in starting Google and Facebook.

In-Q-Tel
The Q in In-Q-Tel

It’s funded by the CIA.

Was the tax appropriation for this commercial subsidy and market involvement — wonder how MySpace and AltaVista feel — spelled out by Congress?

Doubt it. Did you know that our government has apparently spent $21 trillion off the books since 1998?

For what it’s worth, that’s about what our national debt is for which we are paying $365 billion in interest, expected to increase to $447 billion next year.

We’re just reporting this to make you feel warm and comfortable that you have a Big Brother looking out for you.

The Q in In-Q-Tel  is an intentional reference to Q, the fictional inventor who supplies technology to James Bond.

Culture Of Life Fashion Statement

Culture Of Life Fashion Statement — Journalist, political pontributor and now Mommy Activist Carla D’Addesi and her daughters were tired of feeling excluded from the Fashion industry due to harmful styles, anti-life and even messaging that is anti-women.

“Many brands proudly support anti-family and anti-life organizations with their profits and we just felt guilty spending our money on apparel that went against our core values,” said Mrs. D’Addesi. “My daughters and I joked that we should either start our own Fashion Line or begin sewing our own clothes.”

COL1972 was created around the dinner table one evening. COL1972 stands for Culture of Life and the year 1972, the last year that we enjoyed a culture of life in the USA.

“1973 is the year that our Supreme Court chose that our tiniest people would not have the right to life,” Mrs. D’Addesi said.

Since 1973, 60 million people have not had the right to life.

“We dreamed of a Fashion brand that celebrated all life! Life is AMAZING would be the message on every item and reflected in every insta post and twitter tweet…because LIFE really is glamorous and is ALWAYS in STYLE,” she said.

This is a brand that is Dad approved but also kid approved! This is guilt-free shopping that is healthy for the mind, body and soul!

Interesting that Celine Dion, also launched a Fashion line about the same time as COL1972. Dion’s messaging is all black, dark and apparel is covered with horns and eyes for our children. Clearly, one Fashion brand is harmful to our youth, families and culture…while the other is encouraging! Happy! Fun!

COL1972 is filling a gap in our Fashion industry.

COL1972 Foundation is the charitable arm of the brand and gives back to organizations that Celebrate all Life. COL1972 is sponsoring the March for Life and the Students for Life annual Conference this January.


The brand has been well received. Upon launching Jan. 1, many COL1972 items are already sold out.


“We hope to create a tribe! A posse! A community! We are risk takers and readers. We are artist and thinkers. We are dreamers and influencers. All united by the belief that every LIFE is priceless,” said Mrs. D’Addesi.

Nationalist Plus Socialist Equals Nazi

Nationalist Plus Socialist Equals Nazi — Children, remember: Nationalist is only Nazi when you add Socialist.

Also remember, the old media tell lies.

Hey did you know that Abraham Lincoln supported high tariffs? He signed bills that led to placing our tariffs at 38 percent and 48 percent. This tariff scheduled remained in effect until 1913 during which time America became the greatest economic power in history.

(And we didn’t have an income tax.)

Boeing MH-139 To Be Built In Delco, Philly

Boeing MH-139 To Be Built In Delco, Philly — Boeing has won a $2.4 billion contract to replace UH-1 N Huey helicopters that were icons in the Vietnam War and which are now tasked to guard U.S. nuclear missile bases.

The new MH-139 is derived from the Italian AW139, a commercial helicopter developed by AgustaWestland, which is now a subsidiary of Italy’s Leonard S.p.A.

It’s a big boon for the Philadelphia area.

The choppers will be assembled at Leonard’s plant in Northeast Philadelphia with the military stuff added at Boeing’s Ridley Park facility.

Prodigy And Sears’ Ironic Bankruptcy

Prodigy And Sears Ironic Bankruptcy
It’s the Willis Tower now.

Prodigy And Sears’ Ironic Bankruptcy — Sears, once the world’s largest retailer with the world’s tallest building, filed for bankruptcy today, Oct. 15, and is about to disappear.

Some are crediting Amazon and it’s use of mail order and the internet. The irony is that Sears became the Goliath of its day through mail order and catalogs, and that Sears through it’s involvement with the the online service Prodigy was an pioneer in the internet and e-commerce.

New Balance American Made And Loving It

New Balance American Made And Loving It
Guess the shoes we choose to use.

New Balance American Made And Loving It — If you seek footwear and a conscience clean of exploiting underpaid, underage, mistreated workers, we’d like to point out that New Balance has a strong US manufacturing presence and  that we have found their comfort and quality to be far superior to Nike.

Yes, Nike is an oppressor. No, we aren’t cherry picking. You really should be ashamed if you buy their products.

We take warmth in knowing, though, that Nike will always remember murderer Gary Gilmore’s last words as it sports towards its hipster-fueled  corporate demise.

June 5 Marks CEO Retirements

June 5 Marks CEO Retirements — June 5 has certainly been interesting in the world of business. Two politically active anti-Trump billionaire CEOs picked today to announce their retirements. David Koch is stepping down from Koch Industries and the open-border activist group Americans for Prosperity Foundation, and totally woke Howard Schultz is quitting Starbucks.

It’s a coincidence worth nothing.
