And even if you could somehow source American only parts…then what? What would you have accomplished? Best price? Not necessarily. Best Quality? Ditto! You can run the flag up every morning and salute till your hand is numb. But, if you end up buying an inferior product then you have endorsed inferior management and rewarded their personal lifestyle so that they can prosper in their ineptitude.

Mr.Copper @ 21:07 Made in America??? Pretty tough to be sure nowadays

Posted by silverngold @ 21:31 on August 29, 2015  

These days, automakers manufacture and assemble vehicle…

It used to be pretty obvious which cars were built in the U.S. (Detroit’s Big Three of Ford, GM and Chrysler) and which weren’t (everything else). Then in the 1980’s the Japanese started building cars here, which made for some interesting arguments about what constituted an “American” car. But in today’s global economy, it’s even harder to answer the question: Is your car made in America?

Many consumers looking to buy an American-built vehicle are having a hard time finding one that’s assembled here with 100-percent American-built components. That’s because it’s actually impossible, at least if you’re talking about buying a car from the major carmakers.

Made In U.S.A. (Partly)

For example, while Jeep’s Patriot may be built in Belvedere, Ill., its transmissions originate in Mexico, Japan and Germany. Similarly Ford’s Michigan-assembled Mustang may be as American as mom, Marines, and apple pie, but its transmissions come from China, France, the U.K., and Mexico. Chrysler’s PT Cruiser isn’t even built in the U.S. – it’s assembled in Toluca, Mexico, though its transmission is U.S.-sourced. GM, meanwhile, builds its Chevy Camaro in Canada and its GMC Sierra pickup in Mexico.

Confusing? Yes. But that’s not the start of it. BMWs are now built in the U.S. and so are some Mercedes vehicles (in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and Vance, Alabama, respectively). With Japanese carmakers having established multiple assembly plants across the U.S. and American car companies operating plants in Canada and Mexico lines are blurred further.

So what makes a car American? It’s a rancorous debate that’s sure to rumble on, but consumers can make up their own minds based on information that’s appeared on the labels of every new car for sale for years. This states where the vehicle was assembled and where the engine and transmission originated.

American cars got bad only AFTER imports were introduced, because domestic makers had to cut corners to compete against artificially cheaper subsidized imports. Just like bad cheaper money drives out the good money. Cheaper imported cars drove out the good domestic ones.

Lately Toyota and others are in trouble all the time. Toyota air bags that emit shrapnel. Remember the Toyotas that accelerate by themselves? People that avoided domestic cars, and started buying imported cars years ago, did EXACTLY what the gov’t wanted them to do.

I refused to do what the gov’t wanted me to do and stayed loyal to domestic.

He’s right U know.

Ultimately, all tax absorbing local gov’ts, all foreigners, global businesses, and foreign gov’ts all depend on the wages of the entry level workforce. Believe the unbelievable. This is why all the new higher hamburger wage stories. They are FLAILING, too little too late.

To equate the 40s thru 60s minimum wage should be $22/hr today. Higher skilled would then get $40/hr instead of the $24/hr avg wage of today.

Jap cars all around here end up on their side, or upside down. Often they also go on fire. A husband and two little girls killed here recently after being rear ended by a speeding drunk.

Absolutely no “hoopla” about dangerous light small imported tuna can cars. The communist media is very pro foreign biased. They always said the USA was fat and spoiled.

You must be a very young guy, or never in manufacturing business if you don’t remember all the “VASOLINE” the unwary unpatriotic public got, to hate domestic cars, and the United Auto Worker union. In fact, they killed any unions. Global businesses have been avoiding US taxes and US labor for DECADES.

Before the 1960s “competition” US cars were the best on the entire planet. Many from the 1950s still being used daily in Cuba.

Obama is only one of many before him. Naturally worse than all because the REAL gov’t is in trouble, and pushing their stupid ways harder faster before they lose everything. I hope Trump gets in, reneges all past laws and treaties designed to impoverish the USA, and avoids being assassinated.

That would remind me of the newly elected in south or central America that take away or rescind mining licensees giving to global corporations, and the communist global media promptly calls them communist leftists but are really local rebels or heroes defending their country against global welfare powers and global corporations.

The actual speed was found to be higher, around 40 mph (64 km/h), and after x-ray examination of the fuel tanks from the C/K pickups used in the staged collision, it was discovered they had not ruptured and were intact.[57][58]

Who’s charging more for Obamacare plans? Surprise …

420

COMMENTSJoin the Discussion

Bigger might be better, but it can also be pricier—at least when it comes to Obamacare.

A new analysis found that the largest insurer in each of the states served by HealthCare.gov raised their prices in 2015 much more sharply—by an average of 10 full percentage points—than smaller competitors on that federal Obamacare marketplace.

Those steeper price hikes for monthly premiums didn’t seem warranted by the level of health claims made by customers of those bigger plans, according to the study published in the journal Technology Science, by Harvard University’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science.

They also stand in contrast to the belief that economies of scale will result in lower prices.

Health Care insurance options in California.

The Harvard study’s results come after a separate piece of analysisreleased by HealthPocket earlier this month came in “contrary to expectations.”

The insurance comparison company found that in a dozen major counties across the U.S., a popular kind of health insurance plan tends to be significantly more expensive—by an average of 12 percent—when offered by health-care providers such as hospitals, as opposed to traditional insurers.

That stands in contrast to common wisdom, because if doctors work for the provider whose health plan would be covering those procedures, the theory goes, there would be less of an incentive to inflate the costs incurred per patient by recommending unnecessary tests, surgeries and other procedures.

“Enter this as another instance where a ‘silver bullet’ for reducing American health-care costs has been called into question,” said Kev Coleman, head of research and data for HealthPocket.

In the same vein, the findings published in Technology Science by Harvard’s Grace Gee and co-author Eugene Wang suggest that “the largest on-exchange issuers may be in a better position to practice anti-competitive pricing compared to their same-state counterparts,” according to the study.

“This really raises questions about the recent AnthemCigna andHumana mergers,” she said.

Their analysis looked at the 34 states that were served by HealthCare.gov when insurers began selling plans that first took effect in 2014, and how prices for those plans changed for 2015, the second year of Obamacare enrollment. The largest insurer, or issuer, was determined by market share.

“On average, the largest issuers raised rates by 23.9 percent, while the other issuers only raised rates by 13.7 percent,” the authors wrote.

That means the largest issuer in each state had, on average, a 75 percent higher premium increase compared to other insurers in the same state, the report found.

The study also found that the rate increases of larger insurers affect “a larger portion of plans” than did the rate increases of their small competitors. It is common for an individual insurer to offer multiple health plans, at different price points, on government-run Obamacare exchanges.

Gee told CNBC that the findings were “pretty consistent” across the states.

“It’s not like based on one outlier,” said Gee, who, along with her co-author, has started a data-driven, research-based online insurance broker and comparison site called HoneyInsured.

Asked why the largest insurers were raising their rates more steeply than their competitors, Gee said, “I don’t have a good explanation for that.”

But the article detailing the study said there may be “other possible justifications for the higher premiums” that weren’t covered by the scope of the analysis.

“Perhaps the largest insurers in each state expanded their network [of health providers covered by a plan] faster than other issuers, so that premium increases reflect more accessible or higher-quality medical care,” the article said.

Another possibility is that the higher premium increases are the result of the biggest insurers having higher rates of enrollment of older customers, who “have higher variance in their medical utilization costs.”

A third reason could be that large insurers may have been more conservative than smaller ones in how they priced their plans initially, because they had less need to attract new customers, and because they had little actual information about health-care use by their Obamacare customers when they had to set prices for 2015.

Because open enrollment in Obamacare plans ran well into the spring of 2014, the first year of such plans, insurers had very little time to craft 2015 proposed rates, which had to be submitted by last summer.

One of the insurers mentioned in the study, Premera Blue Cross, said the 37 average rate increases it obtained for the Alaska market on HealthCare.gov for this year were justified given a number of factors in that state, including the relatively small size of the individual market there and an influx of disproportionately less health customers.

“We’ve seen a large influx of individuals with very significant medical needs and related medical costs purchasing new coverage under” the Affordable Care Act, the company said in a blog post last year explaining its rate hike requests. “In short, there are not enough healthy members in Alaska’s individual market to offset the cost of members with very high medical costs.”

Premera spokeswoman Melanie Coon said the company only had one competitor on HealthCare.gov in Alaska—Moda—and noted that while Moda’s rate hikes were “a bit less than us,” it was “not by much.”

In the other analysis by HealthPocket, the company looked at prices of the least costly plans in 12 major U.S. counties, and assumed a customer was a 40-year-old nonsmoker buying coverage just for themselves.

Obamacare plans are divided into “metal” tiers, with the cheapest metal “bronze” covering a smaller portion of medical costs for customers than “silver” plans, which in turn cover a lower share of the costs than “gold” plans. “Silver” plans are the most popular, accounting for two-thirds of the plans sold on Obamacare marketplaces.

“Contrary to expectations, the cheapest provider-owned health plans were more expensive on average than the cheapest plans not owned by providers,” said Coleman, the HealthPocket lead researcher.

“The cheapest provider-owned silver plans in the 12 counties that HealthPocket examined were 12 percent more expensive [on average] overall than the cheapest silver plans not owned by providers.”

For example, in Maricopa County, in Arizona, the lowest premium for a health-care provider-owned “silver” plan was $194.88, compared to the $165.73 for a silver plan not owned by a provider. That’s a 17 percent difference in price.

In Oklahoma County, the difference was even more dramatic, with a more than 34 percent difference in the lowest-price “silver” premiums for a provider plan versus the lowest price from a nonprovider.

HealthPocket found that just four counties had providers whose lowest-priced silver plan was cheaper than a comparable nonprovider plan. But the trend wasn’t limited to these plans.

“Bronze and gold provider-owned plans were 13 percent more expensive than the cheapest bronze and gold plans not owned by providers,” Coleman said.

In both of those metal tiers, there were only two counties where HealthPocket found that the lowest-priced plans offered by providers were less expensive than nonprovider plans.

“The results … illustrate the sobering reality that the best intentions of reforming American health care do not necessarily produce the cost-savings imagined,” the company said in a report on its findings.

If only “they” would enforce the law against banksters or pols.

A former United States Attorney General just reviewed federal law pertaining to Hillary’s case.

His ruling?

Hillary Clinton may not be legally allowed to hold office if she is charged in connection with her use of a private email server to handle classified information.

Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton’s private email server illegal, it “disqualifies” her from holding any federal office.

Such as, say, President of the United States.

“If you do this or that bad thing, you’ve essentially disqualified yourself as being the leader of the free world,” said Mukasey, referring to the illegal server and the illegal handling of classified materials.

Mukasey specifically points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071.

For those of us who do not have United States Code committed to memory, here’s what it says:

Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

Yes, it explicitly states “shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”

Shouldn’t voters know that?

The media won’t tell them.

3 billion years of Climate Change must stop NOW!

Posted by Scruffy @ 13:11 on August 29, 2015  

From The Hill, By Devin Henry – 08/28/15 04:36 PM EDT

President Obama is bringing his climate change message to the Arctic Circle, White House officials said Friday, previewing his trip to Alaska.

Obama’s trip next week is part of his “broader and longer-term effort” to speak about climate change and highlight how to prevent it, Obama’s senior climate adviser, Brian Deese, told reporters.

“This trip to Alaska will be an important part of that ongoing effort,” he continued.

“For the president, I think that this is going to be principally exciting because it’s going to give him the opportunity to meet with Alaskans and hear from them about what’s going on in their lives and how climate change is impacting them now.”

Obama will discuss the need for a United Nations deal on climate change during a conference of Arctic Circle nations on Monday. Deese said the speech will also touch on ways for local communities to track and address climate change.

Obama will also tour a national park and hike on a receding glacier near Seward, Alaska. On Wednesday, he’ll meet with residents and fishing workers in Dillingham, a town known for its commercial fishing operations, and then travel to the town of Kotzebue, in the Arctic Circle.

The prevailing mission of the trip, officials said, will be to assess the direct impact of climate change in an area — the Arctic — that is particularly sensitive to it. Obama pledged in a video earlier this month to use the trip to illustrate the urgency of climate change to the American public.

“This is an issue that is very here and now,” Deese said. “The issue of climate change is not an issue of the future tense in Alaska. It is affecting people’s live and their livelihoods in real ways.”

The trip is part of the Obama administration’s sharper focus on climate change.

The Environmental Protection Agency released a landmark rule governing greenhouse gas emissions from power plants in early August. This week, Obama issued a series of executive actions to boost renewable energy technology.

He spoke this week on climate change and energy issues in Las Vegas and New Orleans, where he marked the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Later this year, a U.N. conference will meet to try to reach a deal aimed at preventing climate change.

A federal judge in North Dakota acted late on Thursday to block the Obama administration’s controversial water pollution rule, hours before it was due to take effect.

Judge Ralph Erickson of the District Court for the District of North Dakota found that the 13 states suing to block the rule met the conditions necessary for a preliminary injunction, including that they would likely be harmed if courts didn’t act and that they are likely to succeed when their underlying lawsuit against the rule is decided.

The decision is a major roadblock for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers, who were planning on Friday to begin enforcing the Waters of the United States rule, expanding federal jurisdiction over small waterways, like streams and wetlands.

But the Obama administration says it will largely enforce the regulation as planned, arguing that the Thursday decision only applies to the 13 states that requested the injunction.

“Once the rule takes effect, the states will lose their sovereignty over intrastate waters that will then be subject to the scope of the Clean Water Act,” Erickson wrote in his order.

“While the exact amount of land that would be subject to the increase is hotly disputed, the agencies admit to an increase in control over those traditional state-regulated waters of between 2.84 to 4.65 percent. Immediately upon the rule taking effect, the rule will irreparably diminish the states’ power over their waters,” he continued, calling the Obama administration’s interpretation of its jurisdiction “exceptionally expansive.”

The states and the federal government argued over how to judge the likelihood that opponents of the rule would win their case. But Erickson decided that the regulation is not likely to stand up to full court consideration.

In a statement shortly after the ruling, the EPA was defiant and said that the injunction only applies in the 13 states that filed for it: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

“In all other respects, the rule is effective on August 28,” EPA Press Secretary Melissa Harrison said in the statement. “The agencies are evaluating these orders and considering next steps in the litigation.”

The EPA’s interpretation appears to conflict with responses from most stakeholders, lawmakers and others.

The water rule quickly became one of the most controversial regulations from Obama’s EPA, opposed by most states and many business, agriculture and development interests, among others.

They argue that the regulation greatly expands the federal government’s authority over water and land.

The Obama administration says the rule is necessary to protect small waterways from pollution or harm, as called for under the Clean Water Act.

As a preliminary injunction, Erickson’s ruling is designed only to last as long as the litigation persists, and can be overturned.

The 13 states, led by North Dakota, are participating in just one of 10 lawsuits against the water rule. In total, 29 states, along with business interests representing energy, developers, farmers and others, are suing.

The cases have been consolidated into one lawsuit at the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati, but Erickson argued that he could still issue his injunction. Multiple litigants had requested injunctions in their lawsuits, and most had been dismissed and deferred to the Sixth Circuit.

On Wednesday, a federal judge in West Virginia declined to block the rule. Shortly after Erickson’s decision in North Dakota, Judge Lisa Godbey Wood in the District Court for the Southern District of Georgia also declined a plea from 11 states to block the rule, saying she lacked jurisdiction.

Congressional Republicans and their allies applauded the injunction.

“The judge’s decision to block the rule — which was challenged by 13 states — is encouraging, especially as EPA’s credibility has been questioned in the past month,” said Julia Slingsby, spokeswoman for House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah). “The EPA needs to be stopped before it does more harm to our nation’s precious water resources.”

“A federal court threw a giant wrench into the EPA and Army Corps’s plan to radically expand their power,” said Dan Danner, head of the National Federation for Independent Businesses, which filed one of the lawsuits.

“The agencies ignored the impact of their actions on small business and ignored prior Supreme Court decisions.”

The League of Conservation Voters sharply criticized the decision.

“This is a terrible decision for the 1 in 3 Americans who have already been waiting too long for these vital protections for their drinking water,” said Madeleine Foote, the group’s legislative representative.

“The District Court for North Dakota’s decision puts the interests of big polluters over people in need of clean water,” she said.

 

Note:  ………  if your dog takes a pee, the EPA wants control over where that piss flows and all the land around the flow path.

Your Comment: “Obama has absolutely noting to do with any of the above.”

 

I guess we will have to agree to disagree. When the O’bum declared that “deniers (of global warming) were more of a threat than terrorists, he clearly stated his far out radical environmental lie to be his mantra.  The sicking of the EPA on all things energy and attacking private property rights, demonstrates he is an activist of the first order. The list goes on and on, but I can think of no description of the Obum that does not support the author’s contention in the quote at the top of this page.  He is scumb of the lowest order and is abusing constitutional law to carry out his agenda.

If your contention is that someone is pulling his strings, I can’t argue against that, but he is the key tool and demonstrably so.   JMIO

SOS from the radical communists on the left

Posted by Scruffy @ 10:56 on August 29, 2015  

I didn’t want to have to write this. I prayed that I wouldn’t have to. I didn’t want to have to bring this up so soon after the shooting. But thanks to the Left, I have no choice.

Earlier this week, as you probably know by now, a disgruntled former news reporter shot and killed two of his co-workers live on television. The shooter was a Black man and, according to his manifesto, he wanted to finish the race war that the Charleston shooter had started. All three of his victims were white.

So let me get this straight… When a white man kills an African American, it is automatically considered a hate crime. But when an African American man kills two white people, admitting that he wanted to wage a race war, it’s the gun’s fault? And when African Americans kill each other, well, that doesn’t fit into the Left’s talking points so they just ignore that…

There’s no doubt in my mind that the White House will try to label this as workplace violence. They did that with Nidal Hassan, a confessed terrorist who killed 13 people at Fort Hood…

But I’ll tell you what I am tired of. I am tired of gun control advocates lying and campaigning off of these tragedies. The shooter wasn’t even caught yet and White House Spokesperson Josh Earnest was already spouting the same old nonsense, claiming that we needed more gun control laws to stop things like this from happening. Hillary Clinton said the same thing.

The scumbag bought the gun legally. He put a deposit down on the pistol two days after the Charleston shooting. So not only did he pass the background check but he bought the gun months ago. A waiting period would have been pointless.

He didn’t use a so-called “assault weapon,” nor did he buy the gun at a gun show. So why the hell are Democrats pushing their same failed policy proposals? Because they are masters at manipulating tragedies.

The fabric of the 2nd Amendment is under attack! Click to stop Democrats from taking away your Constitutional rights!

I feel for the families of the victims, I really do. I can’t even imagine the pain they must be feeling right now. Alison Parker’s father went on Fox News and said that he is dedicating his life to the pursuit of more gun control.

If this happened to me and one of my loved ones was pointlessly gunned down, I might feel the same way.

But there isn’t a SINGLE gun control proposal out there, short of complete confiscation, that would have stopped this tragedy.

The gun control movement is based on trying to convince Americans that if certain policies were enacted, tragedy would be averted. They have been doing this for decades. Then, when the tragedies occur anyway, they say it is because the laws didn’t go far enough so we need more of them.

Right now, top Democrats in Congress are gathering to plan the next assault on the Second Amendment. They’re meeting with all the usual suspects, the White House included, to discover new ways to infringe on YOUR rights.

For years, the Left has said they aren’t interested in taking guns away from law abiding citizens. But in this case, the shooter didn’t break any laws until he un-holstered his pistol and pulled the trigger.

The new call to action on the gun control side is to “stop the easy access to guns.” In the gun grabbers’ minds, “easy access” is apparently defined as buying a pistol at a Federally licensed gun store and passing a background check, because that is what the shooter did.

If that is what is being proposed, then we’re all in the crosshairs now!

Democrats hate your 2nd Amendment rights. You must protect them! Stop the Left from implementing more gun control!

This is their new endgame. Instead of focusing on banning certain weapons, they want to make it next to impossible to buy any weapon.

This is why we fight. The founders were right; the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

The storm clouds are gathering around us and this time they aren’t going after cosmetic attachments or magazine size. They don’t care about what the gun’s called or what it looks like. Instead, they want to make it harder for everyone to buy any gun. They are going after the very notion of sovereign citizens purchasing firearms. The threat has never been more real and we cannot afford to sit back and wait to play defense anymore.

Democrats think it’s too easy to buy a gun. Send your FaxBlasts to stop this new gun control push!

Sincerely,

Max McGuire

Egypt bids for two advanced French helicopter carriers – counterweight to the Iranian navy

Posted by ipso facto @ 9:58 on August 29, 2015  

Egypt is in advanced negotiations with France for two highly advanced French Mistral class assault-cum-helicopter carrier ships that were originally destined for the Russian Navy. debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report that this deal, if it goes through, will substantially beef up the regional lineup of the Saudi, Egyptian and Israeli navies. The new vessels would enable it to contest Iranian naval challenges in the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, and alter the balance of strength between the opposing sides.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have given presidents Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi and Francois Hollande pledges to fund the transaction at $800 million per carrier.
The Mistrals will join the missile ships of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel and six Dolphin submarines which, according to foreign sources, are capable of firing nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles. Their delivery comes at a time of strengthening strategic ties among Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Israel.
