Just finished watching President Trump’s wonderful speech in Fargo, N.D. Thought we might escape a My Pillow commercial for an hour. No such luck.
Steel Mill Reopens, God Bless President Trump — This is for all the Trump haters. It’s certainly not something you will likely hear via your local media.
If there’s a city that encompasses the repercussions of the steel downturn, it’s Lorain.
The city is home to two large steel plants, one of which is currently shut down. The other is only running one of its three mills, according to the union. Both have left hundreds without jobs and will contribute to a likely budget shortfall for the city.
The issues plaguing the plants aren’t unique. The steel industry has been facing oversupply globally; domestically, producers have also been struggling with a strong dollar and low oil prices driving down demand for drilling-related products.
“It’s going to be a rough couple years,” said Brian Sealy, staff representative for the United Steelworkers.
Sealy, who worked in the Lorain plants for about 20 years before joining the USW staff, said he hasn’t seen a downturn like this since at least 2009, when the entire economy took a dive. Even then, both mills “limped along” instead of shutting down, he said.
Canton-based Republic Steel shut its Lorain plant at the end of March and is just keeping security and a few people on site to protect its assets.
Now the first few graphs from a story carried by WKYC.com Thursday. (March 8, 2018)
In response to President Trump signing proclamations Thursday imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, Republic Steel has announced plans to restart its Lorain facility.
The move would bring back more than 1,000 jobs to the Lorain plant, which will be positioned to restart its idled electric arc furnace, casters, and rolling mills on short notice.
Republic currently has open capacity at its Canton melt shop. Restarting the Lorain facility would provide more than a million tons of new production capacity. The company anticipates that it would take a few months to hire and train employees and restart its idled equipment.
God bless President Trump. MAGA.
Steel Mill Reopens, God Bless President Trump
MAGAnificent Speech By President Trump –President Trump has just finished a magnificent speech. Democrats shamefully sat on their hands even when it was pointed out that Black and Hispanic unemployment was the lowest in history and the stock market was setting records.
They even sat on their hands looking sour when the President said In God we Trust.
President Trump made all who loved this country proud. He painted a picture of hope and it was a realistic picture.
He promised massive cuts in prescription drug prices and a bold new infrastructure program.
Some conservatives might give him grief on his immigration plan as he said he would give amnesty and eventual citizenship to 1.8 million illegals brought here as children –if they should exhibit good moral character and stay employed over a 12-year process.
The grief is unwarranted.
President Trump is not wavering on the wall, is going after illegals who commit crime, is ending the lottery system and will stop chain migration.
God bless President Trump.
MAGAnificent Speech By President Trump
Red Blotches Steve Bannon Pink Elephants — Former White House strategist Steve Bannon is getting grief from President Trump after excerpts were released from an upcoming book in which Bannon accused Trump’s son of treason and said other nasty things about the President and his family.
How could he do this?
Here is a photo of Bannon and the President in happier times.
Notice the blotches on Bannon’s face. Does Bannon remember saying the nasty things about Donald Jr. and Jared? Does Bannon remember working in the White House? Does Bannon shout at the pink elephants playing on his lawn?
Those are the important questions.

Squirming in their seats were the delegates from Iran and North Korea.
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented,” he said.
His condemnation of Iranian terrorism received applause as did his condemnation of the Venezuelan regime.
He also condemned unrestricted immigration and global trade deals.
Thank you President Trump. You are a breath of fresh air after the last two decades much less last eight years.
If you missed it, the speech should soon be available at WhiteHouse.gov.
Trump UN Speech Means MAGA
Trump First Call From Muslim Leader — H8ers projected their own failings onto The Donald after our President-elect secured the Republican nomination accusing him of all sorts of bigotry and other character flaws.
Well smoke this.
His first international phone call congratulating him on his shocking win was from Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is one of the world’s good guys.
“President Trump said he looked forward to meeting the president (again) soon,” said a statement from al-Sisi’s office.
Also Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recorded a video in which he happily congratulated Trump and called him a “great friend of Israel.”
World leaders on the sane side seem delighted with what happened last night.
Trump First Call From Muslim Leader
Trump Fights Sexual Predators — Pseudo-journalist Megyn Kelly has accused Donald Trump of being a sexual predator based on a 10-year-old recording in which he described the insane attraction that some women have for Hollywood-connected billionaires.
Meanwhile, real sexual predation is, well, not much talked about by Ms. Kelly and her ilk.
How many stories have you seen regarding this matter last June in which two Muslim migrant boys from Sudan were charged with sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl in Idaho?
How about this story from earlier this month concerning a Muslim migrant who raped a 10-year-old in Minnesota?
Where is Ms. Kelly’s report on what is going on in migrant camps in Europe?
Frankly, a candidate who talks dirty doesn’t bother us if he is the only one in the race who is going to look hard at immigration from cultures where this sort of stuff is considered to be some kind of holy duty.
Regarding the “inappropriate touching” allegations against Trump that have strangely sprung up in the last few weeks, smear jobs are SOP against those who threaten the establishment class.
Wikileaks has conclusively shown the depth to which the Clinton camp will stoop and how the press is happy to collude with them.

Trump Mocked Disabled? Nope — One of the more destructive tropes being pushed by the neo-feudalistic globalists desperately clinging to power is that Donald Trump is mean and mocks disabilities.
The basis is a speech he gave in South Carolina in November in which he defended a claim he made that many Muslims in America celebrated the 9/11 attacks and blasted New York Times reporter Serge F. Kovaleski for walking back a story that Kovaleski had written about it in 2001.
During his criticism of Kovaleski, Trump gestured in a mocking fashion. Kovaleski has a disability. The establishment began spreading the story that Trump was mocking it, which would have been a rather cruel if true.
Well, it turns out that Trump has made those exact same movements in mocking other opponents who don’t have disabilities including Ted Cruz.
Obviously, The Donald was not making fun of Kovaleski’s disability, but what’s a little false witness when one’s path to the public trough is in danger?
Now if you want to see cruelty, insensitivity and heartlessness in action, well, here:
And in other election news Carly Fiornia has endorsed Trump.

Trump Unveils Child Care Program — It takes a village to win an election we suppose.
Ivanka Trump made the introduction to her father’s speech, tonight, Sept. 13, at the Aston Community Center in which he pitched radical new changes to the tax code to provide for care of children and dependent elderly.
The Donald had with him several congresswoman to emphasize the point, and gave credit to his daughter for plan.
And the plan will allow parents — including stay-at-home moms — to deduct from their income taxes child care expenses for up to four children and elderly dependents. It would also create new Dependent Care Savings Accounts (DCSAs) so that families can set aside extra money to foster their children’s development and offset elder care for their parents or adult dependents. It would also include regulatory reform to promote new family based and community based solutions, and also add incentives for employers to provide child care at the workplace. The money in these accounts could be used to pay for school choice and college education.
The plan would also guarantee six weeks of paid maternity leave by amending the existing unemployment insurance (UI) that companies are required to carry. The benefit would apply only when employers don’t offer paid maternity leave, and would be paid for by offsetting reductions in the program so that taxes are not raised.
Two thirds of the cost of this plan will offset by “the increases in economic activity that accompany pro-growth tax reform, better trade deals, regulatory and immigration reform, and unleashing American energy,” according to the campaign. The remaining one third will be offset by minor changes in the current trajectory of spending for federal agency operations, excluding Defense, Veterans, Social Security and Medicare.
It’s still more realistic than anything the Democrats are offering. There is no way we are not voting for him so we grinning and bearing.
And maybe it will work.
