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.
Trump Vs Sex Trafficking, Dems — A curtain has been removed revealing an exceedingly ugly, vermin-filled part of our society, namely the exploitation of children for sex.
In the first 18 months of Donald Trump’s presidency trafficking arrests were up 743 percent over the first two years of the Obama administration. The 9,200 arrest made by Trump equals the number of arrests made during Obama’s eight years.
You don’t hear this discussed in establishment media or the daytime talk shows aimed at women.
Why is that?
You kind of wonder if those controlling things at the daytime shows aren’t happy with the change.
Handlers can make up to $200,000 per child who can be sold up to 20 times a day.
Adults purchased sex with children an estimated 2.5 million times. Note this doesn’t include other forms of abuse like child porn.
So what unimaginably sick person is the customer? Zero Hedge notes that many are wealthy and established, positions of power and influence. The Baltimore-Washington area, for instance, is referred to as The Circuit, and is a hub for the sex trade.
While many of the victims are domestic runaways, or even sold by their parents, many others are moved across the southern border by cartels. It’s is one of the big reasons why Trump wants his wall.
Some have suggested that the profits from the trade are one of the big reasons why some oppose it.
Seriously, why would one oppose the wall? It’s certainly not the construction cost. That’s never bothered a Democrat before.
GM Building EV In U.S. Now — A story that won’t be played up on ABCCNNBCBSNYTWAPO is the recent declaration that General Motors will build its new electric car in Orion, Mich. rather than out-of-country as had been planned.
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.
Morris Dees Fired From SPLC — There is something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.
Morris Dees, who has been the subject of hagiographic movies, documentaries and mass media articles and has been influencing our society for the worst since 1971 — really people the KKK was a dead joke by 1971 — was fired yesterday (March 13) from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)
And the SPLC is being audited.
The SPLC has been a scam from the start starting long after the heavy lifting in the Civil Rights movement was finished with a business strategy of beating long-dead dogs with the purpose of getting Dees — who started off as working for George Wallace — on easy street.
As long as Dees picked on the already marginalized Klan he was safe. Who likes the Klan? Really?
Of course, he leveraged his reputation into labeling just about every group opposed to the progressive wing of the Democrat Party as a “hate group” even to the point where he inspired a terrorist attack on the Family Research Center in Washington D.C. in 2012.
Anyway, a once thought untouchable leftist icon is now out. These are strange times indeed.
GOP Flips Connecticut Legislative Seats — For political junkies, Republicans tonight (Feb. 26) won special elections taking seats in the Connecticut legislature that had been held by Democrats in heavily Democrat districts.
Gennaro Bizzarro beat Democrat Rick Lopes for the District 6 Senate seat that had been vacated by Terry Gerratana who had taken a role as an advisor in Gov. Ned Lamont’s administration.
Joseph Zullo easily beat Democrat Josh Balter in the 99th District State House seat replacing Rep. James Albis who moved into a spot as a senior advisor with the state’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection
Mexico Paying For Wall After All — Joel Pollack on Breitbart points out that President Trump can start building the wall now and can burn through $4.5 billion before even touching the $3.6 billion from his contested national emergency declaration.
Pollack says the money available now includes $600 million from the Treasury Forfeiture Fund (Mexican drug lords), $2.5 billion from the Department of Defense to support counterdrug activities, and the $1.4 billion from the just approved budget. Only the money in the budget has restrictions, Pollack says.
