More Winning – Trans Lux To Return Full Manufacturing To U.S. – And Foxconn Begins Discussions…

For more than a year we have been discussing the Trump ‘America-First’ economic platform.  Within the discussion you may remember the following:

[…]  In addition, an unquantifiable benefit comes from investment, where the smart money play -to get increased return on investment- becomes putting capital INTO the U.S. economy,… (read more)

Today Trans-Lux, a manufacturer of LCD and LED displays, announces that Trump’s victory has pushed the company to shift back from China to the U.S.A.:

[…]  “Earlier this year, we didn’t think Donald Trump would win,” said Allain. “But we closely watched his campaign and listened to his protectionist rhetoric. His win forced us to reevaluate our plans in China.”

Now with Trump’s win, Allain said the company is accelerating its move back to the U.S., with the goal to make all of its products in America within a year. (read more)

And the good news doesn’t stop there:

REUTERS – Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer and a major Apple Inc (AAPL.O) supplier, said on Wednesday that it was in preliminary discussions to expand its operations in the United States.

“While the scope of the potential investment has not been determined, we will announce the details of any plans following the completion of direct discussions between our leadership and the relevant U.S. officials,” it said in a statement.

On Tuesday, Masayoshi Son of Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp said he would invest $50 billion in the United States and create 50,000 new jobs, a move U.S. President-elect Donald Trump claimed was a direct result of his election win.

Foxconn’s brief statement followed a report by broadcaster CNBC on Wednesday showing a snapshot of a page held by Son outlining the investment carrying the logos of SoftBank and Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd  (read more)

    I’ve never seen an elected official–especially a President–fulfill his/her promises. This is amazing to watch and furthermore, it is setting an important precedent for future presidents. If Trump succeeds in pulling off even half of what he has proposed, Americans will come to expect it from all our elected officials. We have been brainwashed into believing their excuses. No more. Donald Trump will be the standard to which all others will have to aspire. And it’s about damn time.

  2. Interesting how much winning we’ve experienced in a few weeks, and he’s not even officially playing the game yet. I can’t imagine what Monday, January 23, will look like. That’s the first business day of the Trump presidency.

      I would edit the date to January 20. As soon as he’s sworn in, the exec orders will be gone. And a WHOLE bunch of other stuff. I doubt he will take the weekend off.

        The guy is a machine. The best part is he enjoys it! So he doesn’t even feel the need to vacation. I’m starting to wonder if he will even spend a day or 2 on the golf course during his first 4 years. Too much work to be done!

          I was thinking about this very thing last night. All today’s kids have an image of is a lazy, self-possessed, America hating, blame everyone else, do thing apologist, pathological liar as president for the last 8 years. I honestly think that Trump’s solid work ethic, unapologetic, no nonsense strategies and get ‘er done attitude is going to do more for this country then anything else. He will actually demonstrate true strength and manhood, something which most kids have never seen in their entire lives. There will be those who will never get it and complain loudly, but I think there will be way more that, when the light bulb finally comes on, will turn their lives around. Oughta be fun!

    I don’t know how or when it could happen, but under a Trump presidency, I hold out hope that my home town of Cumberland, MD could return to having a bunch of manufacturing jobs. Beginning in the late 70s, companies started leaving or closing down one by one: Queen City Brewery, Celanese (textiles), Kelly Springfield Tires, Cumberland Macaroni, PPG, the Schwab Company along with a big drop in railroad traffic. Owners of the landmark retail establishments have died, with the children mostly moved out of town and some of their buildings still empty. Most of the businesses now are restaurants and other service jobs and a federal prison where Celanese was located, but the population is decreasing and aging (including my parents) and there’s a growing drug problem.

      Representative of many, many cities and towns where jobs have all but dried up, thanks to NAFTA, etc. Take a peek at upstate NY, for example. Syracuse, Rochester and many other towns all suffered grievous loss of jobs. The same can be said in many locales.

      Of course, you’re talking about Maryland–a state whose government is almost completely democrat (and therefore, ‘almost completely incompetent’). A major problem for businesses in Maryland lies in its tax structure.

      One of the happiest days of my life was the day I moved away from Maryland–as I drove out of the state, I heard a speech by the governor, who was announcing yet another tax increase. I cheered the fact that I would not be subject to it. In fact, I rue the day I ever agreed to buy a house in Maryland–it turned out to be a major drain on my finances, and one of the worst decisions I’ve ever made.

      Good luck to the good people of Cumberland, though. Most of Maryland toils under the strain wrought by politicians they don’t support. Were it not for the over-bloated Montgomery, Prince George’s and Baltimore counties, perhaps the rest of Maryland would have a fighting chance.

        Thanks, R-C. You’re right, outside of those 3 counties, the rest of Maryland is red.

        • My husband grew up in upstate New York. He said industry had been taxed out of the area before he was born in 1937. Seen the aging, empty hulks of once-beautiful factory buildings was heart-breaking.
          Unless state and local govts get on board, our Renaissance may be short-lived. Or, alternatively, the populations of the high tax areas will continue to decline, shifting votes to Red States.

      Yeah. Blame NAFTA and not the regulatory and tax burdens imposed by the state you live in. Let’s see. Texas has to deal with NAFTA also and its economy is booming. And not just in petroleum but in manufacturing and service jobs also.

      Everyone here seems to hate NAFTA but they either didn’t know or don’t remember that Milton Friedman himself supported it. Quit whining and change the date you live in or move like the young people obviously are.

        I did not mention NAFTA (all but of one of the companies I mentioned closing or leaving long before NAFTA notwithstanding). Perhaps this was a reply to R-C?

    I hope he chooses someone who genuinely cares about American consumers, not corporations, to head up the consumer protection division, and someone who cares about American consumers, not drug companies, to head up the FDA. Please, no more toxic products from China; no more poisoned pet food and “treats,” and melamine toys and litter boxes; no more contaminated drugs and contaminated herbal remedies; no more “voluntary recalls” of anything (make the recalls mandatory); no more deceptive labels (companies are not required to list place of origin if that place is China); no more filthy shrimp imports; no more exporting dead chickens to China for reprocessing and re-importing to the USA. If Trump does this, even the most diehard leftists will end up in his corner.

    Bring in Ralph Nader (leftist or not, he CARES about consumers), the editors of Consumer Reports, the directors of the ASPCA (not the corrupted national Humane Society–which should not be confused with local Human Societies), or anyone else who actually gives a flip, regardless of his or her politics, and find people who know what they’re doing and can get the job done. As soon as Obama took office, he reversed the national ban on wolf hunting as a cruel joke on Sarah Palin. Bring it back.

    Make America First should include ALL Americans, humans and animals. Please, please no more dangerous crap from cheapo Third World countries that literally laugh at the harm they cause (One reporter wrote about Chinese businessmen at a restaurant laughing about all the dogs and cats in America dying from contaminated food made with Chinese ingredients). We don’t need fake drugs from Mexico, China, or Canada. We don’t need any more junk.

    It’s amazing – Trump is trying to create jobs and we have republicans trying to give our jobs away. Look below at what Rep Andy Harris ( R ) is pushing.

    Rep. Andy Harris to urge House Rules Committee to expand H-2B visas in spending bill —

    Thank you for your activism over the last week! Because of your efforts, the must-pass, short-term spending bill introduced by House Republicans does not include a significant increase in refugee funding for the coming months or an increase in H-2B visas.

    But, our Capitol Hill team has just learned that Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) will urge the House Rules Committee to allow an amendment to the short-term spending bill that could potentially quadruple the number of H-2B low-skilled guest worker visas issued in 2017.

    The House Rules Committee meets at 3 p.m. ET. We need your urgent phone calls NOW!

    CALL to STOP H- 2B increases
    

    Here is the list of House Members who will decide if Rep. Harris’ amendment can be added to this week’s spending bill. Please call each one on the list! I’ve included talking points below the numbers.

    Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions — (202) 225-2231

    Rules Committee Ranking Member Louise Slaughter — (202) 225-3615

    House Speaker Paul Ryan — (202) 225-0600

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — (202) 225-4000

    House GOP Whip Steve Scalise — (202) 225-0197

    GOP Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers — (202) 225-5107

    Rep. Andy Harris — (202) 225-5311

    Talking Points:

    I urge you to oppose any effort to expand the H-2B guest worker program by exempting returning workers from the annual cap. The H-2B visas is especially harmful for American workers without a college degree. Voters sent a clear message in last month’s elections — they want immigration policies that protect American workers, not harm them!

    Next time a liberal speaks out against Trump saving carrier. All I hear is negativity from the left. Ask them about Obama’s rip off shovel ready jobs. And when they challenge you about how many people are out of work tell them to take a look at this website. http://www.dailyjobcuts.com
