More MAGAnomic Success – Chrysler Moving From Mexico To Michigan, Toyota Building in Alabama, and More…

The recently passed Tax Bill continues to enhance the MAGAnomic policy of the Trump administration, leading to more great economic and jobs news amid the headlines.

Do the math.  The three single-day announcements below will add more than 6,500 new jobs, average around $50,000 per job, and contribute tens-of-billions to a revitalized new America-First economy.  This is MAGAnomics in action.  This is a direct result of economic policies initiated by President Trump.  This is part of the reason why the U.S. GDP will easily exceed 4% growth in the next three years of Trump’s first term.

Economic Nationalism – America’s largest private employer, Walmart, has announced their plan to increase their minimum wage to $11/hr and give out bonuses between $200 to $1,000 to each of their more than one million employees:

CNBC – […] “We are early in the stages of assessing the opportunities tax reform creates for us to invest in our customers and associates and to further strengthen our business, all of which should benefit our shareholders,” he added. “However, some guiding themes are clear and consistent with how we’ve been investing — lower prices for customers, better wages and training for associates and investments in the future of our company, including in technology.”

Walmart said the changes will benefit the retailer’s more than 1 million hourly employees across the country and will go into effect as soon as February.  (read more)

Additionally, as a direct result of the new tax landscape in combination with the one-time write-offs for investment, Chrysler has announced they are moving the majority of their Heavy Truck manufacturing from Mexico to Michigan:

DETROIT — Fiat Chrysler is moving production of heavy-duty trucks from Mexico to Michigan and paying bonuses to U.S. workers in response to the passage of U.S. tax reform late last year.

The automaker will invest $1 billion in its Warren Truck Assembly Plant to make the Ram Heavy Duty Truck starting in 2020. That truck is currently made in Saltillo, Mexico, where workers will continue to make commercial vehicles.

FCA says the Warren plant will add 2,500 new jobs.

The company also plans to pay $2,000 bonuses this spring to about 60,000 hourly and salaried U.S. employees. Senior executives won’t get the bonus.

FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne says the company should adjust its manufacturing footprint to reflect “improvement in the U.S. business environment.” He says employees should also share in the tax savings.  (read more)

Capping off the trifecta of good news, Toyota/Mazda has announced a massive $1.6 BILLION investment in new manufacturing in Alabama that will employ 4,000 U.S. workers:

Toyota Motor Corp (TM) and Mazda Motor Corp announced on Wednesday they will build a $1.6 billion joint assembly plant in Alabama that will employ up to 4,000 workers, a boost for President Donald Trump, who wants automakers to expand U.S. production.

Toyota President Akio Toyoda and Mazda President and Chief Executive Officer Masamichi Kogai joined Alabama Governor Kay Ivey in Montgomery at an event to announce the decision.

“Welcome to sweet home Alabama,” Ivey said to the two executives, after saying that the anticipated 4,000 workers at the plant to be built in Huntsville would earn an average of $50,000 a year.

The plant will produce 300,000 vehicles a year and should open on a 2,500-acre former cotton field in 2021, about 14 miles from Toyota’s engine plant in Huntsville. (link)

              His idea was to get Americans into community colleges to take STEM classes. Which benefits the politicians. They have a symbiotic relationship with Higher Ed.
              Then, since Americans are becoming aware of the student loan scam, if the politicians help drive up the cost of two-year colleges to where students can’t do it by working and paying as they go, he can just transfer that cost to the taxpayers even more.
              Then when these poor kids finish with their two year STEM degrees, they will find nothing but part-time low wage jobs, and the full time jobs that used to pay well will be filled by foreigners.
              Since this is already happening to a large degree, my prediction carries weight.
              Although I do see a lessening recently, of the constant yammering about STEM on the local news.

                Bendix – thank you for your insight. I have a female HS senior that is interested in pursuing an engineering degree. For years we heard about how we dont have enough US kids interested in STEM and that the problem for our country. I would submit that the problem is that 4-year engineering colleges are >$20k in tuition. The middle-class family like myself is being asked to cosign on her loans to fund college. I am an engineer and have had a great career but I dont think a bachelors degree in engineering is worth $100k debt. We have a 529 plan but it has been eclipsed by the rising price of tuition. There is also an incentive for colleges to fill slots with international students that pay even more for tuition. This country will have a real problem on its hands. The colleges are filling slots with international students that may or may not stay or poor kids that get full rides. The middle class is getting screwed again and to hell with all their kids that have worked hard and have an interest in having a career that will allow this country to continue making tech advances and robust economy.

        Years of planning to circumnavigate anti-growth policies and regulations. But to refute your point, follow this timeline:

        Campaign 2012, Oboobie: “You didn’t build that, Government did”. His admin churns out thousands of pages of regulations, adding 1 trillion to the burden of doing business

        August 2016, Oboobie: Those jobs ain’t coming back. What’s he going to do, wave a magic wand? 2% GDP is the new normal

        05 Jan 2017: Trump tweets that Toyota/Mazda are going to build a new plant in Baja, Cali. He promises them they will be tariffed

        July 2017: T/M announces they will build in America

        10 January 2018: T/M announced they will build in Alabama. Analysts now estimate 4% as early as this quarter. A few days prior, Trump announced that while his agencies complied with his EO to get rid of 2 regulations for every new one. Results after almost 1 year equated to 23 regs eliminated for every new one. At this rate, it’s imaginable to see all regs contained in a single volumne by the time 2024 rolls around.

        Yes Virginia, Trump really did “build” this and Oboobie had nothing to do with it. All within a year of work, preceded by years of speaking his mind.

          ahcwp, the thing that jumped out to me in your post was this:
          in Jan 2017, T/M announced they were going to build in Baja, and Trump reminded them of Tariffs…
          and in June, they announced they would build in USA.
          1) everyone reads The President’s tweets, and
          2) They know Trump means business: If he says they face tariffs, they face tariffs.
          I am amazed at the economy of this sequence.
          Seems to me that heretofore this sequence would have been subject to all manner of negotiations and, of course, the predictable skimming arrangements.
          This simple illustration of how business gets done by someone who actually wants to get things done is just The Best.
          I really love our President.

          It needs to be made clear the demographic pendulum needs to swing back towards what works and put an end to the “diversity” nonsense that is an “affirmative action” type of communist wet dream of disrupting the general culture of a republic realized by diluting the population with aliens who don’t fit in and do not adapt or assimilate in the general traditional culture.

          President Trump speaks our language. Shithole countries is right and many of us regular Joes have used that same exact terminology in regards to those countries and others just like them. Nigeria is a cesspool of corruption that has cost American citizens millions of dollars in losses due to their constant internet scamming. They, like the people in Haiti, seem to lack the desire to clean up their own countries. If they won’t help themselves, why the hell should we? When this country has taken care of their own, including all of the Veterans in need of help, including housing, then maybe we can spare some change to help other countries in need, but only those deserving of our help, who will take that aid and run with it, instead of becoming dependent on it while they continue to sit around and do nothing.

          President Trump said it about himself. He’s not PC and never will be. He speaks the hard truth and it’s long overdue. I am so tired of the race baiting, excessive government interference, and mooselum and illegal alien loving crap that we had to put up with during the 8 years of Obumbles dictatorship. We, The People, went too long without a voice in Washington, D.C.. Now, we have our Voice and his name is President Donald Trump. God help any of the socialist progressives or RINOS who try to remove him from office.

I worried about my 401k, I worked hard to build it up but I am not where I want to be and I feared so often that I was going to lose most of it because because Obama and his lackeys had no idea how to deal with the economy.

        I read something a week or so ago that mentioned that the US’s “on fire” economy was a rising tide that was lifting all boats. Apparently our economic recovery has been rubbing off on other economies, too, for various reasons. I thought that was interesting.

        Random fact from the article I linked below is that retail job openings are at a 15 year high, even though Amazon was going to murder brick and mortar.

        “…Liberals told us that the corporate tax cut bill was a sop to the rich, etc. Yet lots of solid economic studies found that our high corporate income tax rate had a depressing effect on workers’ wages, and that a cut in the corporate tax rate would be a boost to wages.

        In the immediate aftermath of the tax bill’s passage the number of big companies passing out bonuses to workers (usually $1,000) and/or raising wages is up over 30.

        Yesterday, citing the tax cut, Waste Management announced it will give out $2,000 bonuses to nearly 34,000 employees. And WalMart announced that it will raise its starting wage to $11 an hour, increase fringe benefits, and will give out bonuses of up to $1,000 to most employees depending on length of service.

        And Pepco and Washington Gas, the public utilities for the Washington DC area, say the tax cut will allow them to reduce rates for their customers. That’s more money in everyone’s pockets….

        The significant reduction in the corporate tax rate has lowered the cost of capital across the board. Other countries are quickly following the U.S. in cutting their corporate tax rates to remain competitive. Japan, Australia, Austria, even Argentina and France (!) have announced plans to cut their corporate tax rates, and several other nations indicate they won’t be far behind.

        And liberals furious about this!…”

Commies always point the finger of “you didn’t build that” or “you don’t deserve that” at corporations. Unti the corp. says “I’m thinking of moving”.

One NC furniture salesman said he actually saw an improvement in quality after several transferred their business to SE Asia. He assumed it was because the management gave more time to a $2.00/hr worker to do his job than the $18.00/hr one here. At the time (three months ago), I couldn’t find what I wanted with American made (not that much selection), so bought a higher quality Asian made from a NC importer and had it shipped out by a NC shipper. I was not disappointed with the Asian-made quality when it arrived two days ago but I paid for higher quality and that’s what I got (American company that recently switched to Asia). For the rest of my new house, want to see for myself what is available in NC that is domestically made — difficult to assess 2500 miles away.

        ‘A Major Defense Contractor Buys Its Way Back Into the Spying Business’
        May 11, 2015

        “Case in point: the recent acquisition by SAIC, a prime government contractor, of Scitor Corporation, the most secretive and least-known of the companies that collect and analyze signals intelligence.

        One potential and very probable market for SAIC is the CIA itself, where Scitor is highly valued for its technical expertise. CIA Director John Brennan is currently pushing a radical reorganization that would end the agency’s traditional split between analysis and operations to create separate, hybrid “mission centers” modeled on the National Counterterrorism Center, where analysts and operatives work side-by-side.

        Like the NCTC itself, these mini-CIAs would be heavily staffed by contractors. And they are being created at a time when the CIA’s is increasingly seen as a para-military force. For SAIC and Scitor, which both have extensive experience in black ops, Brennan’s future vision for the CIA could be the perfect storm of opportunity.”

I don’t want to hear it. I don’t care if these foreign manufacturers make the firearms here. I want US firearms manufacturers to beef up their game and make the BEST firearms for the purpose. I want the foreigners to have to eat their firearms. Why ship profits to countries that restrict access to firearms for average citizens? Let US makers sell the best on the planet to OUR protective forces. Period.

    This is how programmed the LSM is: two days ago the reporters at NPR said the tax cuts would have no impact on the U.S. car market because all the models sought by consumers — SUVs and trucks — were made in Mexico because the facilities in the U.S. were operating at capacity. Duh. Guess they haven’t been reading the press releases leading up to the press releases. Or doing their homework on the DETAILS.

    No excuse for being lazy at their salaries.

    I worked for one of the automakers and spent quite a bit of time at some plants. Those are good jobs. Good pay, good benefits. I met people with college degrees in a variety of fields, including some sciences, who couldn’t make as much money in their chosen areas as they could make working in a plant. If the vehicle is really popular there’s opportunity for overtime pay too. Plants are quite clean and safe. The work might be a little mind-numbing and repetitive but that’s about the worst of it.

    I hope some of you read that link at the bottom of Sundance’s article. The one about The Labor Department’s December Jobs Report Being Highly Misleading.

    It’s a NY Post story that points up how the Labor Department falsified the numbers downward to make President Trump’s economic success look less robust.

    Another agency weaponized by the usurper.

    The unemployment numbers were totally faked by that criminal phony as well.

      Jazcox, if you want that type of president, bring by Obama because Trump’s discernment is without parallel. Like General Patton, we want a President who says it like is and like Patton gets the job done. If you want niceties, then don’t expect it in America but can be found in countries under the caliphate or nearly under the caliphate. Trump doesn’t get in his own way but does get in the way of those who would like him to get in his own way. He is far smarter in so many ways, it would take a book to list them.

      I feel you. But I take the Melania Trump view of Trump. He’s an adult, he knows the consequences of his actions and words and he has to deal with the fallout. The good news is that time and again Trump is able to navigate the whirlwind. The question of why set off the whirlwind is something we can solely place at his feet. The media is bent on stopping his agenda and they are responsible as much as you think Trump is.

      Trump has a way of speaking and it’s easy to use that to portray him in a negative light. With that said, I don’t want him to become PC, so you have to take the good with the bad if you don’t want him PC. The bad mostly comes from the reaction of those who are PC.

    During a PBS town hall that aired Wednesday, Obama referenced Trump’s promise to bring back jobs to the United States when talking about manufacturing.
    “Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What exactly are you going to do? There’s no answer to it,” Obama said.
    “He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”

    The pathetic lame stream media , on radio news feeds ( America in the morning) is not reporting this. Instead they are hyping that carrier is laying off 600 workers, as per their business plan. The newsreader does not state that thanks to DJT carrier IS keeping their plants in the USA ( Indiana) open instead of moving entirely to Mexico as they originally had planned.

    Another very sick report discussed DJT’s physical today, mentioning Donald’s appearance on dr oz tv show, pre- election, when DJT gave dr oz a letter from his physician. The evil harpie news reader, sherry preston said: the note said the president was in good health, but did not mention that his father who lived into his 80’s suffered from Alzheimer’s. Their is no limit to the depths these fiends plumb. To paraphrase my sea daddy mentor, the media is in an abyss, there is no bottom. For those who enjoy radio, the news feeds are an exercise in torture, even on so called conservative programs, or plain old local stations.

    Please call your reps and senate whores to support the prez, he needs to know that he is not alone. Some of the good immigration monitoring sites have a feature which will send an email to each of your reps, very easy to do. Support DJT, let him know!

      Bronxite, don’t you know that many only in their 30’s are suffering from dementia and many older people are not. We have several in the 2 parties in 1 in Congress who definitely have outright signs of dementia and yet their demented voter vote them in time and again. We know who they are so I don’t have to list their names but each time they open their mouths, it explodes their mental problems, even one in the SC.

      Millions also would come across the border claiming to have been brought here as children, and there would be no way to prove otherwise.
      If anyone thinks that couldn’t happen, think back to the “unaccompanied minors” scam. They were babysat for by our border agents, entertained by our elected officials, and then picked up by their illegal relatives, already living here. Nobody said boo.
      Does anyone believe it could not happen again?
      “Brought here as children” morphed into “sent for as children” during the Obama administration. We are supposed to give them special consideration? They are all “childhood arrivals” now.
      The courts and various Leftists are already working to give DACA status to people who don’t have it; no way would any DACA considerations at all not become a full-blown amnesty for all.
      Which was Obama’s plan when he had those children put in jeopardy to rush the border.

    • They get to keep their YUGE “accumulated” campaign fund donations.
    • They’d have to spend them for reelection.
    • Donations are drying up WAY faster than they’d be spending … because
    • President Trump’s M🇺🇸A🇺🇸G🇺🇸A! Agenda eliminates the need to donate.
    • And President Trump’s ENDING Pay-for-Play CORRUPTION.

    Latest dust-up seems to be that Rats cornered into making an open decision on immigration are deflecting by swearing that, during a closed door meeting, Trump complained about people flooding into the US from ‘sh*thole countries’. Trump denies it but Rat Sen ‘Dick’ Durbin confirms, on his lily white Rat soul. Trump said that.
    OK, let’s just say he did, it may have been an inappropriate if accurate adjective, and many of us have asked the same thing using the same adjective. It may be good warm-fuzzy publicity to flood us with sick and broken people from broken sh*thole countries who have no idea of what freedom and democracy is other than Rats pulling money from the pockets of working folks to support the latest additions to their dependent flock.
    Note Trump didn’t say anything against bringing in more Indians or Asians, two groups the Rats seem to avoid. Trump is looking to bring in educated immigrants with a work ethic, anathema to Rat planners who are looking more towards ones who’ll vote for food. Trump’s trying to keep a productive America afloat while the Rats are trying to drown it in a tsunami of consumers.
    I’m seeing this latest diversion as a desperate effort by Rats from getting pinned down and having to show their colors on immigration before they get another prog Rat in the WH and influence the 2018 midterms on the way to 2020. Lord, here we go again.

    Our President shared the following factual tweet the other day!

    These pollsters like Quinnipiac are getting more and more desperate to paint a narrative that is completely out in left field! Don Jr. does an excellent job of destroying their narrative by pointing out what the data looked like leading up to their newest release. HELLOOOOOO:

    Econ Good or Excellent in Years:

    2017: 66%
    2016: 29%
    2015: 37%
    2014: 31%
    2013: 30%

    Charles Payne, Host of Making Money on FBN, goes a step further and shows the bias in the sampling and the bias questions about our President before discussing the economy.

    Sample:

    •34% Dem
    •38% Ind
    •23% GOP

    Questions before ‘economy’ about President Trump’s:

    •Level headed
    •Intelligent
    •Fitness

    Here are the facts folks! Don’t let these Barry loving MORONS get away with BS. KILL THEM WITH THE FACTS!

    The latest Party Affiliation Trend from Gallup shows the following:

    •27% Dem
    •46% Ind
    •25% GOP

    http://news.gallup.com/poll/15370/Party-Affiliation.aspx

    1st Quarter GDP in 2017 reached 1.4% (keep in mind Barry was still in office for 20 days and our President just began to implement his deregulation and energy policies)

    The 1st Quarter for 2018 is now being forcasted at 3.2%. What is amazing about that 1st Quarter projection is the fact that historically the 1st Quarter is the lowest of the 4 Quarters. As I stated above, the 1st Quarter for 2017 was a miserable 1.4%!

    We are on the cusp of what every Economist said couldn’t happen & that is reaching 3% GDP in our PDJT’s 1st year in office. Never in Barry’s 8 miserable years did he reach 3% GDP for a year. What makes it even more significant is that Barry’s last year, our annual GDP was 1.6%!

    Here is a look back at GDP growth under several Presidents (going back to Eisenhower):

    GDP Growth:

    Johnson (1964-68), 5.3%
    Kennedy (1961-63), 4.3%
    Clinton (1993-2000), 3.9%
    Reagan (1981-88), 3.5%
    Carter (1977-80), 3.3%
    Eisenhower (1953-60), 3.0%
    Nixon (1969-74), 2.8%
    Ford (1975-76), 2.6%
    G. H. W. Bush (1989-92), 2.3%
    G. W. Bush (2001-08), 2.1%
    Obama (2009-15), 1.5%

    Folks, PDJT will have a real opportunity to sit at the top of that list when his 8 years are over!
    Here are Barry’s percentages during his MISERABLE 8 years!

    Stand far away when you share this nugget about the messiah!
