GM will rehire 500 Michigan workers slated for layoffs

By David Shepardson | WASHINGTON

General Motors Co plans next year to rehire 500 Michigan assembly plant workers who are to be laid off in May, citing increased demand for larger vehicles, the company said on Wednesday.

GM said last week it planned to lay off 1,100 workers in May at its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan. The company is moving production of the GMC Acadia mid-size SUV to Spring Hill, Tennessee, from the factory, which will build just two models, the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave SUVs.

The company said that when it begins full production of the new versions of the two models in 2018, it would "bring back approximately 500 jobs to give the company flexibility to meet market demand."

Last year, pickups and SUVs accounted for 59.5 percent of U.S. auto sales, up from 55.8 percent in 2015.

GM also said it would add 220 jobs at a plant in Romulus, Michigan, that is building 10-speed automatic transmissions, and it would retain 180 jobs by shifting Lansing workers to a Flint assembly plant to support pickup truck production.

The announcement came as U.S. President Donald Trump visited Michigan to announce his administration will review fuel efficiency standards, a move that could help automakers sell more larger models.

Trump praised recent job announcements by Ford Motor Co, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and GM.

"That's just the beginning," he said in a speech to autoworkers in Ypsilanti, Michigan, on Wednesday. "I told (the auto executives) that's peanuts, that's peanuts. We're going to have a lot more. They're going to be building new plants, expanding their plants."

Trump has discouraged the industry from investing in Mexico and urged foreign automakers on Wednesday to add U.S. production at a roundtable that included executives from Toyota Motor Corp, Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) and others.

GM did not credit Trump with the decision to add jobs.

"We haven’t fundamentally changed any of our plans, but we continue to look for ways to improve our operations and find ways to help the country, grow jobs and support economic growth," GM spokesman Pat Morrissey said.

With analysts forecasting U.S. auto sales are at or near their peak, no automaker has announced plans to build a new plant despite pressure from Trump.

The Detroit automaker in recent months has announced other U.S. job cuts and new investments. GM said in January it would invest another $1 billion in its U.S. factories.

GM said in November it would cut about 2,000 jobs when it ended the third shift at its Lordstown, Ohio, and Lansing Grand River, Michigan, plants in January. In December, it said it planned to cancel the second shift and cut nearly 1,300 jobs from its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant in March.

Now once you're done patting yourself on the back, read a few educated articles on how many jobs are being risk due to Trump's budget proposal. I dare you to educate yourself for a change adverse to Conservative screed, which is a " A birdie told me so" tired

The White House apologizes to the UK. Will the White House ever apologize to American citizens for the same lie that they apologized to the UK about?

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/17/politics/gchq-trump-wiretap-denial/index.html

The White House has apologized to the British government after alleging that a UK intelligence agency spied on President Donald Trump at the behest of former President Barack Obama.

Will Obama apologize?

Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, July 12, 2016
The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.
Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.
In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.
He said he regularly deleted emails with large attachments — a striking violation of open-records laws for a department already reeling from former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of official government records.
Mr. Netanyahu survived the election, and the U.S. spending was not deemed illegal because the State Department never put any conditions on the money. Investigators also said OneVoice didn’t turn explicitly political until days after the grant period ended.

How long will he last?

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/feinstein-trump-ouster-quote-236217

Sen. Dianne Feinstein seemed to indicate Friday that she expects President Donald Trump may disqualify himself from office over potential constitutional breaches and conflicts of interest.

Surrounded by a group of mostly liberal protesters outside a Los Angeles fundraiser, Feinstein fielded a slew of questions on her feelings about what the left has alleged are Trump's constitutional breaches, including one activist's recitation of Trump's potential conflicts of interest -- from profiting off of his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, to winning trademarks in China.

"How are we going to get him out?" the questioner asked.

"I think he's gonna get himself out," the California Democrat and ranking member of the Senate intelligence committee replied.

Her comment was captured on video by LA Times reporter Javier Panzar, who posted the exchanges on Twitter. A Feinstein spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.

Feinstein, though, stopped short of suggesting that Trump should be impeached. Asked directly by another demonstrator whether Trump had committed impeachable offenses, Feinstein replied, "I can't answer that right now."

She also alluded to bills filed by Democratic lawmakers that would police Trump's business conflicts.

"I think sending sons to another country to make a financial deal for his company and then have that covered with government expense, I believe those government expenses should not be allowed," she said, alluding to a recent trip by Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump to Dubai, where they opened a new golf club.

Feinstein suggested the president's potential conflicts raise questions about the Constitution's "emoluments clause," which prohibits federal officials from accepting payments from foreign governments.

Unbelievable. I watched their very tense joint news conference on TV. We have a fake president. A German reporter asked him about Twitter. He said he likes Twitter because it allows him to talk directly to the people and avoid fake news. Once he stops holding news conferences where reporters can ask question of him, our democracy is lost.

THIS COULD BE A PROBLEM -- “Priebus talk with FBI appears to break White House rules,” by Isaac Arnsdorf: “Reince Priebus’s request that the FBI refute a report of Donald Trump associates’ contacts with Russian intelligence appears to have violated the White House’s policy restricting political interference in pending investigations, according to a copy of the policy obtained by POLITICO.

Trump was so very wrong when he said the "press is the enemy of the people". It is vital to the survival of our democracy.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/rex-tillerson-media-fatigue-korea_us_58caefeee4b0ec9d29da247d?

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly opted not to have a meal Friday with his South Korean counterparts because of “fatigue,” according to a line buried toward the end of an article in The Korea Herald.

It’s a newsworthy development, not just because this is Tillerson’s first trip to Asia as secretary &#8213; a trip that comes amid a looming North Korean nuclear threat &#8213; but because of what it suggests about his stamina. And the fact that it was only known through the accounts of anonymous “Seoul officials” via a foreign outlet is noteworthy in and of itself.

That’s because Tillerson has taken this trip without the usual accompaniment of the U.S. press corps. It’s a break with tradition, and it introduced a host of complications and potential pitfalls. For example, Americans have no independent confirmation as to whether “fatigue” did in fact play a role in Tillerson’s actions.

It's time for Trump to generate a rally in one of the states that supported him, the FBI and Feds are breathing down his neck with credible evidence that he was involved in the Russian hacks, a good ole lie or any diversionary move which distracts the public for at least 15 minutes would give him 15 minutes of relief.

"Infantile irrelevancies just don't cut it."

That's Really Interesting, y'all know that?

Why would you say such a thing to a fellow human in the first place?

You post some inspirational little quotes, I really like them, but why bother, when all you do is beat'im with a chair leg anyways.

It's time for a Trump supporter to generate a nonsensical post which changes the topic for all of .02 seconds. In reality, today is definitely not a good day for Mr. Donald, very long and agonizing.
