U.S. Steel to invest $750 million to revitalize flagship Gary plant in wake of Trump tariffs
By Robert Channick - Chicago Tribune, August 16, 2018

U.S. Steel announced Thursday that it is investing $750 million to revitalize its flagship Gary plant to gear up for increased demand in the wake of President Donald Trump’s tariffs on imported steel.

The company said the investment will make “significant upgrades” to increase efficiencies at the 110-year-old Northwest Indiana plant, which is U.S. Steel’s largest, employing 3800 workers.

The investment in the Gary plant is part of a $2 billion asset revitalization program at Pittsburgh-based U.S. Steel. The five-year Gary project will include building expansion and the installation of new production equipment and technology.


U.S. Steel Corp. President and CEO David Burritt credited favorable trade policies on steel imports as instrumental to the company’s facility modernization program.

“We are pleased to be making this significant investment at Gary Works, which will improve the facility’s environmental performance, bolster our competitiveness and benefit the local community for years to come,” Burritt said in a news release.

“We are experiencing a renaissance at U.S. Steel,” he added.

Earlier this year, U.S. Steel announced it was restarting two blast furnaces and hiring 800 workers at a previously idled steel plant in downstate Granite City, near St. Louis. President Trump visited the Illinois plant last month to celebrate its reopening as “a great victory" and a sign that his protectionist trade policies were working.


Located on the southern shore of Lake Michigan, Gary Works is U.S. Steel’s largest manufacturing plant, with an annual raw steelmaking capability of 7.5 million net tons. The facility makes sheet products, strip mill plate in coils and tin products.

“Today’s news is a major step forward that will have a lasting positive impact on the city of Gary, the northwest region and the state of Indiana for years to come,” Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said in the release.

Freight Haulers Order 450,000 New MAGAnomic Big Rigs in 2018 – Backlog for Delivery Extends into 2019
CTH - Aug 17, 2018

Freight-hauling trucks are like the lymphatic system within a healthy economy. As the [country] needs to move stuff around, it’s the truckers who git-r-done; and no time in U.S. economic history has there been such a demand for haulers.

In a stunning Wall Street Journal Report they note analyst group ACT Research says manufacturers are on track for 450,000 orders for heavy-duty trucks this year, easily breaking a 14-year-old record. In July alone, North American fleets ordered more than 52,000 trucks, the largest order in history:


(Via WSJ) An unprecedented run of orders for big rigs has pushed the backlog at truck factories to nine months, according to industry analysts, the largest since early 2006, when truckers stocked up to get vehicles in place before tougher environmental restrictions would take effect. Typically the backlog is about five months for the truck industry’s manufacturers, analysts said.

Brennan lied to you and Congress, about spying on..... You & Congress.

But the security clearance removal is a Big F..ing Deal, ( in the words of Joe Biden.) Not because of a person's ability to assist the Administration with opinions, but because these retired Government employees need the security ratings to get paid serious money by Lockheed and other companies that offered them jobs as bribes for approving big contracts or covering up crimes.

You don't go to a Brennen or a Comey and hand them a check for $10,000 with "bribe for not prosecuting us" in the comment line. That happens to be.... A Crime. What you do, is you or a minion meet with the Head of the FBI or minion like Strzok, and promise a job paying hundreds of thousands a year, meeting & greeting military procurement officers, terrorists, foreign ministers, basically the same folk you pressured when in office, to get them to buy expensive equipment, or allow a pipeline, or avoid prosecution, same stuff you did for Bush, or Obama, but with much better hours and pay.

But without your security clearance? They can't use you. The law requires all the people selling Luckup drones to have clearances. It's secret stuff!

No clearance, no bribe/job.

THAT'S why there's an outcry over pulling the clearances from these lying sacks who are getting Americans and Allies killed by leaking stuff to CNN, to make themselves look connected, and, hurt, Trump.

Because it steals their Deep State Revolving Door ticket to riches.

Lockheed, Wells Fargo, etc. can't use, and have a legit excuse to not hire, people they bribed with promises of future high paying jobs.

And stripped of their usefulness, how can a Comey or a Mueller demand the bribes they earned by covering up massive crimes like bank or Wall Street fraud, the Clintons and millions in bribes, Obama's campaign taking hundreds of millions from Syria & the UAE?

It's not like they are going on the Sunday morning talk shows or telling Morning Joe, "When I violated my oath and covered up the bribery by Putin's minions to Hillary, I was supposed to get $17 million for a pretend job at one of Soros's international agitation companies, but that bastard Trump pulled my clearance and all those bribes evaporated! Damn it! My leaks killed 2500 American soldiers and Allies troops, and it was all for nothing! I don't get a dime!" ?

And now you know....The rest of the story.

I get all that. But I fail to see how they have the stones to complain about it in public.

You don't work for Company X anymore.

They take your keys, so you can't get in or gain access to the company anymore.

It's fairly basic employment law, IMO. Don't work there anymore? You don't get any of the priveliges of working there. Period. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Do not start a book tour. Do not collect dirty money. Get a job like the rest of us.

Do not collect dirty money. Get a job like the rest of us.

But... but... I worked for Obama! I abandoned all morality! I neglected my wife & kids & mistress to put in long hours violating US and international law on wire taps and theft of personal data! I only made 10 times the salary of a peasant scum! I made sacrifices! I could have stayed in Chicago and collected cash bribes!

They Promised me Roses! My feces has no smell! I'm BETTER THAN YOU!!!!!!

Nope, you're not. No animals are more equal than any others.

And we are finally seeing this come to fruition, out in the open.

Reindog, it's my call: I simply choose not to engage.

President Trump's record of accomplishment so far re: Making America Great Again is yugely impressive, especially considering the Deep Machine (which includes the Deep Media (i.e., Fake News, i.e., the "Media Coalition" )) he's up against.

Most of the stuff I post here on this thread of late chronicles (just some) of these accomplishments. By every metric, our president's positions and policies have been yugely beneficial to Main Street Americans. (A conservative political pundit remarked the other day, "Were the past four presidents even trying?!?" That's a damn good question.)

President Trump has already followed through on nearly every promise he made as Candidate Trump, and the few key planks of his campaign not yet achieved are not a result of not trying; unlike our previous pResident, P45 is behaving, well, presidential (read: by the book), rather than dictatorial, in carrying out his agenda.

I appreciate reasoned debate. I have neither the time, energy or desire, however, to wrestle in the mud.

Mind the gap. : )

Opinion: Trump's policies could enable America's economy to outpace China's
By Steven W. Mosher, Fox News - Aug 19, 2018

The great engine of American capitalism is once again firing on all cylinders, as shown by the 4.1 percent annualized growth of America’s gross domestic product (GDP) in the second quarter of this year.

Most Americans (with the exception of Democrats in Congress) are celebrating the good economic news. There is quiet rejoicing in many European and Asian capitals as well, since their mostly sluggish economies will now be drawn along in America’s powerful wake.

But there is one capital where the American economic renaissance is definitely not welcome news. Consternation reigns in China, where President Xi Jinping is nervously watching his “China Dream” of dominating the United States go up in smoke.

You see, surprising though it may sound, America’s economy may now be growing at a faster clip than China’s. And this changes everything.

Until recently, the Chinese economic juggernaut seemed unstoppable. Once China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, its GDP exploded. Unfettered access to American markets – combined with predatory trade practices – allowed China to grow an economy only one-tenth the size of America’s to one nearly two-thirds as large.


China’s rise seemed so inexorable that in 2016 Bloomberg News even predicted the exact year that America’s economy would be eclipsed by China’s. It was a virtual mathematical certainty, its analysts calculated, that in 2027 the Chinese dragon would overtake the American eagle and never look back.

The prediction was based on two seemingly reasonable assumptions: First, that China would continue to grow its economy at 6.5 percent a year. Second, that America would struggle to maintain the anemic 2 percent growth of the 0bama years.

Both assumptions have been dramatically proven wrong.

Under the Trump administration, the American economy is rising like a phoenix from the ashes of the over-regulation, over-taxation and bad trade deals that had threatened to suffocate it.

China’s economic growth, on the other hand, is slowing under the burden of an aging population, massive corruption, unproductive investment and excessive debt. Add to this the growing risk that Chinese products will be gradually pushed out of their major export market – the United States – and you have the risk of a full-blown economic meltdown in China.


While America under President Trump is lightening the regulatory and tax burdens that have hindered economic growth, China is attempting to spend its way out of its self-inflicted economic malaise. The only Chinese sector that has been performing well in recent years is exports, and here President Trump is determined to make the Chinese pay for its rampant cheating of the past.

The bottom line is this: The 21st century may not belong to China after all. In fact, may well turn out to be the second American Century.
