US Raw Steel Production Retreated Last Week
US raw steel production retreated 1.6 percent last week as mills operated at an ACUR of 66.8 percent. In the corresponding week last year mills operated at an ACUR of 68.1 percent. Thus far this year mills have produced prox 68,763,000 tons compared to the prox 70,000,000 tons produced in the like period last year.
Locker Room Talk
We start the week with another “bombshell” from Donald Trump wherein a secretly taped conversation between Trump and a guy named Billy Bush was released to the public. Apparently Mr. Bush had his say in the conversation as NBC has decided to part ways with the commentator. In the conversation from 11 years ago Trump was talking typical “locker room” banter with the guy.
Personally, I do not know of a man who has not made like remarks about women, I plead guilty myself. It’s what we do as men, but it is just an expression of the male ego. Does this mean we are woman haters? Absolutely not, men love and adore women, we idolize them and put them on a pedestal.
Trump for his part, was a known playboy at the time, with pockets full of money. You have all heard of groupies for rock stars, groupies for sports stars and groupies for men with money, groupies for anything. It is an undeniable fact that some women seek to put themselves into a position to be with such men. Ask yourself, where have these women been for 11 years? For 30 years?
In my view this whole “shame on you Donald” is a non-issue despite the continual media hoopla, which is of course, a political attack orchestrated from the powers that be on the left. It is confounding that the abusive acts of Bill Clinton and the vicious attacks on his accusers by Hillary Clinton go without mention by the liberal media. Now that is a disgrace.
Additionally, I am totally dismayed that Republican elites are pulling their support for the nominee for such petty and trivial bullshit. They are in panic mode to save their jobs and stay on the gravy train…the train that Trump wants to turn over.
Our country is in a very precarious position; we have a choice between more government intervention in our lives or less government. Allowing the State to run everything for you, where you are dependent on it for your livelihood is WRONG for America. We are a nation of free thinkers, of doers, of innovators of self-reliant individuals. This can all be lost with another four years of the progressive liberal policies we have experienced over the past 8 years, with Obama steering the ship in a downward path to fascist, socialist, communist extremism.
I remain steadfastly on the Trump Train, headed in the direction of conservative thinking Supreme Court justices, lower taxes, less regulation, a workable healthcare system, secure borders, a strong military, job growth, economic growth and at last attempts to heal our inner cities which have been torn asunder by decades of democratic rule. They promise much, but deliver nothing but despair.
Warships Under Fire
Iranian rebels have fired missiles at US warships 2 times in the past week…we have not returned fire. Why? Blow those bastards out of the water, maybe they’ll think twice before they try it again. piss ants, all of them.
Hallelujah!!! The US struck and destroyed three coastal radar sites in Yemen on Wednesday in a significant military response to the attacks described in the above paragraph.
It’s a fact that if Hillary Clinton is elected, the country’s chance to have a Supreme Court that values the Constitution-and genuine liberty and self-government for which millions have died-is gone. Not for four years, or eight but forever. Many say Mr. Trump can’t be trusted to deliver on this score, but Mrs. Clinton certainly can be trusted to go the opposite direction. For our kids and grandkids, are we not obliged to take our best shot at this? Shall we sit on our hands and refuse to choose?
From an opinion article (Should Christians Vote for Trump?) written by Eric Metaxas, WSJ 10/13/2016
Follow the money:
US investigators are probing whether money improperly obtained from 1MDB (this was a Malaysian government fund scandal where billions of dollars have been stolen-I wrote about this in April when the story broke) was paid to a businessman who later arranged a White House visit for relatives of Malaysia’s leader. Gee whiz Beaver…all the way to the White House.
The businessman involved raised millions of dollars for Obama’s 2008 & 2012 campaigns and has contributed or raised at least $100,000 for Hillary and has donated between $1 and $5 million to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. A bunch of self-serving crooks. Sure, let’s make her president. She, her husband and daughter care about no one but themselves, not the United States, not her citizens, just themselves.
“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”
Have a great weekend…. God bless America!
Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.
If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.
Remember these tidbits as the election cycle grinds on:
- Fast & Furious-Americans killed by guns supplied to the drug cartels…by the Department of Justice-Eric Holder presiding. The president was clueless. No one held accountable
- Benghazi: Four Americans killed in an assault described as the result of a viral video. This was proved to be a false narrative. This was in fact, a planned act of terror. The president was clueless. No one even knows where he was as this went down. No one held accountable
- “At this point, what difference does it make?” Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State
- The IRS targeting of conservative groups and individuals. No one held accountable, Lois Lerner is on paid vacation and has refused to testify. The president was clueless. No one held accountable
- Hillary using a private server for correspondence during her term as Secretary of State against the orders of the president. She thought “it would be more convenient…” Though the records were due when she left office, they were not submitted, subpoenas were issued, which she ignored for two years. Finally, she released 30,000 of some 60,000 alleged emails then she deleted the rest of the emails and will NOT turn over the server for investigation.
