Although the decision to inform a workforce of 1,400 employees that they’ll soon be losing their jobs to Mexico is an admirable one from the standpoint of candor, it hardly makes for a good recipe for workplace morale.
A cell phone video taken at Carrier Air Conditioner in Indianapolis shows the exact moment that the plant and union workers were told that the company had decided to shift production south of the border. “The best way to stay competitive and protect the business for longterm is to move production from our facility in Indianapolis to Monterrey, Mexico,” says the company representative at the microphone.

Individual power. Your power.
It stands as the essence of what the founding documents of the American Republic are all about, once you scratch below the surface a millimeter or so.
Therefore, it stands to reason that colleges and universities would be teaching courses in INDIVIDUAL POWER. Continue reading

WEB Notes: These reports have been going on for years now that the states are going to band together to get their rights back. This is pure hogwash. The states never lost their rights, they simply do not claim their rights. Have we all forgotten the tenth amendment?

A federal appeals court on Friday overturned a lower court ruling that kept a lid on a handful of documents related to a lawsuit from Congress over the Obama administration’s botched “Fast and Furious” operation.
The ruling does not necessarily mean that the eight documents will be released. Instead, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D. C. Circuit merely referred the matter back to a lower court to seek clarity about another judge’s order. Continue reading

Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid wants the government to provide certain illegal immigrants with government-funded lawyers.
“Under current U.S. law, there is no right to appointed counsel in non-criminal immigration removal proceedings, even if the person in question is a child. Imagine that,” Reid said on the Senate floor Thursday. “The humanitarian crisis at our doorstep demands that we, as Americans, affirm our fundamental values of protection and due process.” Continue reading

A party line vote by GOP lawmakers blocked a fourth effort Thursday to bring a bill favored by gun control groups to fund federal research by the Centers for Disease Control to the floor.
The measure, introduced in November, has 74 sponsors – all Democrats – including 22 from New York and California alone, but has languished in the House Subcommittee on Health since its debut. The bill came just days after 110 House Dems sent a letter urging the chamber’s leaders to end a longstanding ban through the Dickey Amendments on federal funding for gun research study as a health care issue.

Georgia — As part of an investigation and crackdown on extensive contraband smuggling, drug dealing, and other criminal activity within the Georgia Department of Corrections, 46 people — mostly current and former corrections officers — were arrested by the FBI on Thursday.
Indictments for those arrested have been handed down over the last three months. So far in the FBI’s sting, around 130 people have been taken into custody by authorities, reported local ABC affiliate, WJCL. Continue reading

Porter Ranch, CA —The Porter Ranch gas leak has been billowing methane and other toxins into the suburban community north of Los Angeles since October of last year, sickening residents and forcing thousands of evacuations. Though emissions are now reportedly lower than they were at the height of the leak, the Aliso Canyon facility’s mishap has been deemed the worst in California’s history. Countless bureaucracies are involved in handling the ongoing disaster, but resolutions have been few and far between. Continue reading

Senior officials with the U.S. Department of Justice recently announced possible legal changes which could allow the government greater room to combat so-called “anti-government extremists”.
On Thursday February 4, Reuters reported that John Carlin, the Justice Department’s chief of national security, and federal prosecutors are looking for new tools to deal with the rise of “domestic extremists.” Continue reading

If you’ve ever gotten involved in politics, owned or managed a website for a business, created a blog, or perhaps started a page on a social media platform like Facebook or Google Plus, then you are all too familiar with trolls. Trolls on the Internet can range from acquaintances you know pranking you just to get on your nerves, all the way to extreme acts of violence being orchestrated by an individual. Continue reading
FLINT (WJRT) – (2/9/16) – At just a year-and-a-half old, Fire Engine 61 is the newest in the Flint Fire Department’s fleet, but look a little closer and you’ll see it…
“The intake valve, we see rust around it. We also have rubber that seals [the valve]. Those are being destroyed by whatever is in the water,” said Fire Chief David Cox Jr. Continue reading

Big Brother wants to be an “equal partner” with American parents in the raising of their own children, starting before they are even born. He wants to send his agents to your house for “home visits,” too. Believe it or not, two powerful arms of Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), explicitly say so themselves.
In a draft policy statement on “family engagement,” the two unconstitutional bureaucracies openly state their joint position: families are “equal partners” in everything from children’s “development” and “education” to their “wellness across all settings.” Virtually no area of family life, including the health and “mental health” of parents, as well as a family’s “attitudes” and even its “housing,” would be free from government intrusion under the government’s Orwellian vision. Even vague notions of “family wellness,” as defined by bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., would be put under a government microscope. “Parenting interventions” will be used to ensure compliance.

A Minnesota city is asking a court for a warrant to enter a rental home in order to check to see if the place is clean. If the city wins the case, then inspectors apparently would be able to enter such a building anytime they wish.
The renters and tenants say they have nothing to hide but are opposing the city’s move based on principle. If they want to leave dirty dishes in the sink, they say, they it should be perfectly legal. Continue reading
