    An important U.S. high-tech manufacturer is shutting down its American operations, laying off hundreds of workers and moving sophisticated equipment now being used to make critical parts for smart bombs to the People's Republic of China [PRC], Insight has learned""

    ""Clyde South was a negotiator for the United Auto Workers Local 662 representing the workers at Magnequench when the consortium began negotiating to buy the company in 1995. In an interview with Insight, South says that worker concern about PRC influence over the consortium led to an "agreement with GM" that the plant would remain in Anderson for at least 10 years According to South, the buyers made the same agreement with the union, but since he had doubts about their intentions he took his concerns to Washington. Warnings fell on deaf ears. In August 2001, the sixth year of the 10-year agreement, South's distrust was validated when the consortium's managers "told us they intend to close the plant" and eliminate roughly 400 jobs.""

    Moving work to China from Boeing's plane-production stronghold in the U.S. Pacific Northwest would represent a bold step for the Chicago-based company, which so far has set up one full assembly line outside Washington state, in South Carolina.

    But the move would be in line with increased global sourcing of aerospace parts and supplies. Foreign contracts and operations are seen as helpful in winning fierce sales competitions with European rival Airbus Group NV.

    Airbus is due to inaugurate this weekend its first U.S. final assembly line, in Mobile, Alabama. The $600 million factory, which sports a large U.S. flag, allows Airbus to lay claim to employing American workers, as foreign automakers did after building U.S. plants.

    Airbus, with major manufacturing in Toulouse, France, also has final assembly lines in Hamburg, Germany, and Tianjin, China.

    Boeing also has relied on foreign suppliers to help cement sales relationships. Three Japanes

  • the writers claim can't be done Number one the plant died during the era of the rise of Japan(80's at the time Japan owned most of the USA scape yards and was making steel from scrap. Next the writer claims old technology, what does the guy think we will build new plants with old technology? what a false lie or failure of understanding. Next china and japan and industrial world labor costs are about equal to ours now;thus why they are heading to Mexico and Vietnam and etc. How can America buying American steel for infrastructure violate trade deals?(If that's so then China and others couldn't build their infrastructure with their steel as an American fir sure be smart enough to build steel plant where they could make steel cheaper than china)...Nonsense, the writer wrote. If they do not want tariff then they must accept imports NO MORE ONEWAY street in favor of other nations over the USA...The Big picture is an USA company leaving America and planning to sale it's good back into USA will have to think twice. Having it made in America would not add to purchase price at retail because we know the imported stuff is not discounted for if it were we could buy the stuff for the same price Chinese pay for it in their country. Sheesh, i bought silk ties in HONG KONG FOR A $1.50 off a street vendor and they sold in the USA between $70.00 and $100.00.....Of course that was when labor was really cheap in china. The point why Trumps position can work is most of our trading partners labor costs are as HIGH as ours is in the USA today ...I am no longer up on it but we used to support china getting in the WTO in the 1980's it is a Big deal! We even have some bad trade deals with Europe...What's happen is we let the world get away with taking out heavy industry in exchange for the USA selling IT(software computers movies). The stuff those countries were not making at the time. And we made deals for the USA farmer(big) for trade; the concession was selling U.S. subsidize farm good

    They(vague) will blame market crash on anything. I must be wrong but this market has been waiting to crash as the PE ratios have been in nose bleed territory for a long time considseringactually no growth. No, mergers do not really count as growth. Say, welcome to the Hillary economy or is it the socialist economy...The left cult is still in delusional land perhaps they should go back to weed and take a break on those mushrooms they are taking. drug out left...It's political that they let those ambassadors die in Libya, yeah right, it would not be an search for why we were so wrong and why the Administration was so determined not to give the Ambassadors more security, I guess the administration thought the Libyan Ambassadors were idiots and did not need more security... I am sure happy I did not have the Ambassador job in Libya because these competent experienced left candidates sure knew what they were doing and it got em killed needlessly. Now, they will not own up to their failure and call it political. No wonder our country is sinking into a sewer. And the left cult has not a clue because it was an left failure and they do not see left failures...The traditional press will not let them. They are tied to their smart phone as in fahrenheit 451, the book, where people were tied to their T.V.

    No wonder President Obama was so mad, saying, are we to say we are at war with islam! I would say they are against Our Constitution especially the Sixth Article. So promoting Shira law would be illegal.(did i get this right?)...Islam allow em to lie for Islam. ""APRIL 8, 2016 2:06 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER 50 COMMENTS

    Is Muslims Lawyers Association president Datuk Zainul Rijal Abu Bakar an ?extremist?? No. A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: ?Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him? (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence.

    This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi?ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: ?The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi?i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four #$%$ schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-?ashriyyah, Al-Ja?fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.?

    Qaradawi also once famously said: ?If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn?t exist today.?"" this a clip....

    Summary: Plurality in Religion Christian W. Troll

    "" ... The West and secularism are projected as total negation of that for which Islam stands. "In fact, the secular world view is the total negation of the Islamic faith", 'Abdullah Naseef the General Secretary of the Islamic World League, wrote in 1989. He considers it to be the foremost task of the Islamic thinker, whom he qualifies as dâ'i ("inviter", missionary), to destroy "the world view of secularism and its intellectual bases. This task includes not only the philosophical refutation of the basic position of secularism but the detailed analysis of all its manifestations, in the Islamic societies as elsewhere. The struggle of Islamic thought with modern secularism is part of the eternal warfare of Islam against kufr, against the powers of atheism, lie and evil"...

    I think Trump himself said junk bonds was the cause. Of course, without a lot of DD I would say the over competitive market in Atlantic city did it in.(Atlantic city was over built)(and if you wanted to compete in the casino business ,your casino had to be at least as good as the next one). Just as the airline business has been a bad business for decades...Talking debt, I just read where the Sands has 10 billion in debt...That's the casino wold if your playing in it...

    com'on telli, we have deaths by cars, racing idiots, accidents from texting, and etc. But we here uno democrat wanting to get rid of our car ownership. Why even that guy in the Oklahoma bomb used a truck, so let's retract truck ownership. The founding father's wrote the second amendment with the thought of the citizens having to "fight the government" some day so the citizens needed the right to be armed! yes, sorry to say that means assault weapons too as they are a standard military weapon today just as the musket was in their day...I herd a report on cassius clay: ""Cassius Clay was a pioneer as an early southern planter who became a prominent anti-slavery crusader. Clay worked toward emancipation, both as a Kentucky state representative and as an early member of the Republican Party.[3]"" I also herd he armed a cannon to defend his printing press because the slave owners wanted to shut him down...This I hear was Muhammad Ali's given name, from a family that fought against slavery (although their parents did own slaves. And Ali, chose a name that still own slaves....Such irony....

    I FORGOT WHAT I WAS GOING TO TYPE...seems i hit can lock.
    Democrats would have us believe they fix the federal budget by taxing the rich. Ok, lets run some numbers. Assuming Fed. budget borrows 1 trillion a year how much would the rich have to make to cover this. Assuming a 10% tax increase the rich combined would have to earn 10 trillion dollars every year. I got news for you they do not earn that much. Make it 500 billion to cover and we are @ 5 trillion... OK lets make it 500 billion and tax em @ 50% then they as an group would have to earn 1 trillion a year. The Rich are to earning one trillion a year if they did they be trillionaires not billionaires! The left is just Blowing Smoke up Americas bottom and the democrat voters must be dumb, smile, when it come to math or they never think for theirselves whichever it is they are not as Smart as they think they are!

    no, i have not seen it(ammosexual). I tell people this if they are cited about Hillary then they better hope she is way different than current policy because a few more decades of this and there will be no USA anymore, the USA will disappear by the year 2100....Good grief, the administration created the success of ISIL by first arming a segment of Al Qaeda in Syria and second by leaving Iraq and third failing to respond quickly to ISIS early before the ill lead Iraq military drop and ran leaving behind more military equipment from the U.S. IMO, it is now a bigger mess than W. Bush caused.

    I visit the Islam post because if you believe her(I not fact check it) and her facts are true : (then it is easy to see why some Americans become Islamic terrorist)...They cannot get away from what their book says especially if they get influence by an Cleric whom promotes the text literally!)...A real problem...On the immigration from ME , I herd that 70% of them are illiterate in their own language cannot read and write, so what kind of job do you think they will be able to do in the USA? mostly none! Why not only immigrate the disabled and mentally ill as this would be just about as helpful to the U.S. economy....

  • I guess the old testament had bad tales but in the new testament Jesus re-interpreted much of it....Not so, with Islam.
    Are w racist or are we just pointing out the facts?

    watch(I am glad many muslims do not take this to heart).

    Sorry liberals. There;s only 1 interpretation of islam-Muhammed's.

    ARE they kidding? what is MRO not saying about Rockpay? Stack pay?
    This stuff hasn't work well economically for Sandridge. Besides this, My math shows MRO paid a premium(huge) for Rockpay. 888 mill for 9,000 boe/d or $98,000.00 per flowing barrel,,that the price assets went for when oil was $100.00 a barrel. and 60,000 some net acres...I know of an Canadian company producing 9,000 b/d with 39,000 net acres conventional production and 9,000 acres and 40,000 acres on pilot SAGD; in total 80,000 net acres with production cut back 3,000 b/d which will be put back on production at $50.00 oil which would give em 12,000 b/d and the entire company is worth 500 million or less, only 90 million debt. and is paying down balance of debt even at $40.00 oil....So, come on why would MRO pay so much for Rockpay?
