Trump Reaches Deal With Carrier To Keep 1,000 Jobs In U.S. – Daily Caller

The incoming Trump administration has reached a deal with Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S. rather than outsourcing them to Mexico.

Carrier, which manufactures air conditioners, attracted national attention in early 2016 due a viral video of the company’s employees reacting to the news they were getting laid off, with their jobs being sent to new production facilities in Mexico. The move was intended to save Carrier’s parent company, United Technologies, tens of millions of dollars in labor costs.

President-elect Donald Trump specifically pledged to reverse Carrier’s outsourcing plan if he were elected.

“It’s not like we have an 80 percent chance of keeping them or a 95 percent. One-hundred percent,” Trump told an Indianapolis rally last April.

On Thanksgiving, Trump announced he was negotiating with Carrier to keep at least some of its jobs in the United States. Now, those negotiations have borne fruit.

CNBC reported Tuesday night that a deal has been struck to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S., representing about half of the 2000 Carrier jobs that were to be outsourced from two different facilities. The deal, CNBC said, was spearheaded by vice president-elect and outgoing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, and will be officially announced Thursday during a visit by Trump to the state.

Carrier itself later confirmed the deal.

It’s not clear how extensive the public inducements will be, but United Technologies has ample reason to please Trump…

CNN Anchor: Americans Should Wear Hijabs In ‘Solidarity’ With Muslims – Daily Wire
.

.
On Monday, mere hours before the Ohio State University radical Islamic terrorist attack, whose responsibility was claimed by ISIS and perpetrated by a Somali refugee, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota suggested that Americans wear hijabs, or religious head scarfs, in solidarity with Muslim women who claim to be too frightened to wear one since the election of Republican Donald Trump.

“Maybe there will be a movement where people wear the head scarf in solidarity. You know, even if you’re not Muslim,” stated Camerota, during a “New Day” segment called “The Trump Transition: Fearful Muslim women take steps to be safe.”

“Maybe it’s the way people shave their heads, you know, sometimes in solidarity with somebody who is going through something,” added the anchor…

Oil Prices Surge On Reports Of A Big Output Cut By OPEC – Fortune

Oil prices jumped more than 8% on Wednesday to a five-week high as newswires reported that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries had agreed its first oil output cuts since 2008.

An OPEC source told Reuters on Wednesday that the cartel, which produces one-third of the world’s oil, had firmed up an agreement in line with a tentative deal reached in Algiers in September. That would involve cutting output from a current level of around 33.6 million barrels a day to somewhere between 32.5 million and 33 million.

Bloomberg said the new ceiling would be at the lower end of that range, an effective cut of between 1.1 million and 1.2 million barrels a day from current levels.

Brent crude futures for delivery in January were up $4 a barrel, or 8.5%, at $51.32 a barrel by 0915 ET, recovering from a drop of nearly 4% on Tuesday and on course for their biggest one-day move in nine months. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were $3.63 higher at $48.86 a barrel, a one-week high.

The volatility is acute because world markets are still badly oversupplied, and prices have edged up since September almost exclusively on the hope that OPEC would rein in output and end the price war that began in late 2014. Analysts at Goldman Sachs, Barclays, and ANZ had said oil prices would quickly fall to the low $40s a barrel if OPEC failed to cut output.

However, if the cut sticks, then the International Energy Agency reckons that the world market could “move from surplus to deficit very quickly in 2017”, leading prices to rise sharply once the existing stock overhang is depleted…

California Bans Cow Farts To Combat Fake Global Warming – Your News Wire
.

.
In an attempt to reduce methane emissions by 40 per cent in order to tackle global warming, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a new law regulating the amount of methane ‘allowed’ to be released from cows.

According to scientists, gasses produced by cow farts are a major source of methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming.

“If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming,” said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board, which is drawing up rules to implement the new law.

Livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, with beef and dairy production accounting for the bulk of it, according to a 2013 United Nations report…

Trump Says He’ll Leave Business ‘In Total’ To Focus On Presidency – Marketwatch

President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday morning he will leave his business “in total” to focus on running the country while in the White House.

In an early-morning series of tweets, Trump said he would hold a news conference with his children on Dec. 15.

During the presidential campaign, Trump said he would hand over his companies to his children to run.

Trump, a real-estate mogul, isn’t legally required to give up control of his business interests, as he noted in his tweets. But he said: “The presidency is a far more important task!”

Trump offered few details in his four tweets, so it’s not clear how he will do this. One area Trump will almost certainly have to address is the Constitution’s clause on “emoluments,” which bans federal officeholders from accepting gifts from foreign states.

Here are Trump’s tweets:

SHOCKING footage of cars burning out in Stockholm has emerged as the fire epidemic continues to spread uncontrolled throughout crisis-hit Sweden.

The Scandinavian country has been plagued with arsonist thugs setting vehicles alight, with hundreds of cars burning out since 2015.

In 2016 alone, more than 70 cars have been destroyed as police struggle to combat the increasing violence and criminal activity in the famously liberal country.

The latest video shows three cars in Hallunda in southern Stockholm engulfed by flames as firefighters battle to put out the blaze.

Overnight Sunday another car was also reported to be burning out in the crime hotbed, which was heavily hit by arson attacks in 2015…

DHS Overwhelmed By Green Card Catastrophe – Washington Free Beacon

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued thousands of duplicate green cards to immigrants, including many that include incorrect information and allow these individuals to stay longer than permitted in the United States, according to a new government oversight report that warns the Department of Homeland Security is incapable of tracking immigrants who may pose a security risk to the United States.

USCIS, which handles immigration cases and the distribution of green cards, was found to have produced at least 19,000 green cards during the past three years that were duplicates or contained incorrect information, according to a new report by the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general.

During the same period, more than 200,000 green card holders reported their cards missing and an increasing number of cards were sent to incorrect addresses, posing a risk to national security.

Problems at USCIS have been increasing over the past three years. The bureau has been deemed incapable of keeping track of green cards and immigrants who have overstayed their legal time in the United States.

“In the wrong hands, Green Cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and illegal aliens to remain in the United States and access immigrant benefits,” according to the oversight report, which disclosed that green card errors cost taxpayers $1.5 million in 2015…

Report Exposes $250 Billion In Wasteful Government Spending – Daily Signal

The national debt is expected to hit $20 trillion early next year. Sen. James Lankford has a few ideas to start chipping away at it.

The Oklahoma Republican unveiled his second government waste and solutions report during a press conference Monday on Capitol Hill and Heritage Foundation event Tuesday.

Lankford’s new report, “Federal Fumbles: 100 Ways the Federal Government Dropped the Ball,” identifies $250 billion in wasteful spending. His goal is to help Congress determine funding and programs that can be streamlined.

Lankford acknowledged that his report is not comprehensive, but is meant to offer common ground solutions to wasteful government spending that would appeal to lawmakers of all partisan stripes.

“This is not about targeting Republicans, Democrats, any administration,” Lankford said. “Bureaucracy is bureaucracy, and inefficiency is present in every government. This is an issue of oversight.”

In order to significantly decrease the national debt and cut government spending, Lankford said both Congress and the Trump administration must be more engaged in oversight.

“With $19.5 trillion in debt, this is something that cannot be ignored,” Lankford said. “If we don’t get economic activity and we do not control our spending, this does not get better in the days ahead. It gets worse.”…

Donald Trump Chooses Tom Price As Health Secretary – Wall Street Journal

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen top officials for health-care policy, picking House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R., Ga.) as secretary of the Health and Human Services Department, the sprawling agency that will likely dismantle Democrats’ 2010 health-care overhaul.

Mr. Trump on Tuesday also named Seema Verma, a consultant who helped Vice president elect Mike Pence negotiate a groundbreaking Medicaid deal with the Obama administration, as the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Price, a 62-year-old former orthopedic surgeon, is one of several GOP physicians who sought to carve out a leading role in shaping the party’s health policy and, in particular, the party’s alternative vision to Democrats’ Affordable Care Act…

Leftists Attack Trump For Suggesting That U.S. Flag-Burning Be Banned, Yet Hillary Proposed Same Thing – Washington Examiner

Critics on Tuesday morning were quick to pan President-elect Trump’s proposal to make burning the American flag illegal, but soon after a bill began circulating on social media that Hillary Clinton introduced in 2006 to do exactly the same thing.

Clinton, then a senator from New York, reportedly opposed a constitutional amendment that would criminalize the desecration of the flag, but introduced legislation in 2005 and backed a second bill in 2006 that would criminalize flag burning.

More than half of Democrats in the Senate backed her effort, the New York Times reported at the time.

On Tuesday, Clinton supporters and members of the media argued Trump was flouting First Amendment protections of free speech by tweeting that flag-burners should face a year in jail or the loss of their citizenship.

Although one of the flag-burning measures Clinton supported failed in the Senate in June 2006, the bill earned 36 votes, mostly from Democrats in the minority…

Tufts University Student Leaders Reject Free Speech Measure, Call It ‘Unsafe’ – College Fix

A sweeping free speech resolution has been rejected by Tufts University’s student government, whose members called the effort to broaden and clarify students’ First Amendment rights “unsafe.”

Tufts has a “red light” speech-code rating from FIRE, which means it maintains at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.

Student Jake Goldberg’s free speech resolution called for an end to campus anti-free speech rules at Tufts, including vague administrative provisos that crack down on the “use of nicknames,” “hurtful words,” “bias-fueled jokes,” “comments on an individual’s body or appearance,” “innuendos of a sexual nature,” “gender bias,” and dozens more similar examples cited in the measure…

Boom: Michigan Just Crashed Hillary’s Pity Party – Allen West

As liberals continue to whine, cry, and challenge the election results that happened several weeks ago, the state of Michigan just gave these delicate snowflakes some rather bad news.

It seems the Michigan Board of Canvassers have certified Donald Trump’s victory in the state, meaning he really, truly, irrefutably turned a blue state red.

It’s too bad folks on the left won’t suck it up and just accept their loss. That would be expecting them to act like adults, which is pretty ridiculous when you think about the fact these are the same people who color and watch puppy videos when they’re “triggered.”

According to the Washington Examiner, The board voted 4-0 to certify the state’s election results Monday afternoon, and the final tally showed Trump with a total of 2,279,543 votes, while Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton got 2,268,839, a difference of just 10,704 votes. Behind the two front-runners were Libertarian Gary Johnson at 172,136 votes and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 51,463 votes.

Last week, the Michigan secretary of state posted vote counts certified at the county level from the contest that showed Trump with a 10,704 vote lead, but the count wasn’t official until Monday.

The state’s 4.8 million votes may soon be getting another look, following media reports of alleged hacking or tampering in three swing states, including Michigan, though there is no hard evidence of any tampering of the results…

President Asshat Tries To Push Through 98 ‘Midnight Regulations’ – Law Newz
.

.
President Obama is spending this holiday season trying to get 98 “midnight regulations” on the books before Donald Trump takes office in January. These last-minute regulations cover things such as commodities speculations, air pollution, immigration, Medicare, funding for Planned Parenthood, investment with China, and student loans. Needless to say, the Republican-led Congress and Donald Trump are a bit miffed that their imagined lame-duck isn’t nearly as lame as they’d hoped.

Before we get into the usual story about how Congress plans to block everything President Obama does, just because he’s President Obama, let’s discuss how these “midnight regulations” even work. The legislative branch of the federal government (Congress) gets to make laws. The executive branch (the president) enforces those laws…

Wisconsin Denies Request For Recount By Hand As Stein Threatens To Sue – Zero Hedge

Finally, a voice of reason emerges in Wisconsin to combat Jill Stein’s useless recount crusade. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin Elections Commission Chairman, Mark Thomsen, who happens to be Democrat, announced earlier that the committee would follow through with Stein’s recount request but denied a request that the recount be conducted by hand. Thomsen cited a 2011 recount that changed the overall vote margin by 300 votes as evidence that the current recount would overturn Trump’s 22,177 vote lead in the state.

Citing the results of a 2011 statewide recount that changed only 300 votes, Elections Commission chairman Mark Thomsen, a Democrat, said this presidential recount is very unlikely to change Republican Donald Trump’s win in the state.

“It may not be 22,177,” said Thomsen, referring to Trump’s win over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the vote count. “But I don’t doubt that the president-elect is going to win that.”

Thomsen dismissed Stein’s claims of problems with the vote as unfounded and misleading. But he directed his toughest criticism to Trump’s unsupported allegations that millions of people voted illegally nationwide, calling them “an insult to the people that run our elections.”

Under the plan adopted Monday, the recount would begin Thursday and could cost $1 million. Of course, we assume that Stein didn’t factor in the incremental costs associated with suing states that call her out for her ridiculous recount efforts…

Islamic Terrorism Suspected In Car-And-Knife Attack At Ohio State University – CNS

A Somali-born Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday before he was shot to death by a police officer. Police said they were investigating whether it was a terrorist attack.

Eleven people were hurt, one critically.

The attacker was identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan. He was born in Somalia and was a legal permanent U.S. resident, according to a U.S. official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the case and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The FBI joined the investigation.

The details emerged after a morning of conflicting reports and confusion, created in part by a series of tweets from the university warning there was an “active shooter” on campus and students should “Run Hide Fight.”…

Florida Man Hiding In Pond Tells Deputies Their Suspect ‘Went That Way’ – UPI

Authorities in Florida said a robbery suspect found hiding in a pond told deputies he was “just fishing” and the real robber “went that way.”

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded Saturday to a Family Dollar store in Deltona, where a clerk told them a man with “Loyalty” tattooed across his abdomen claimed to have a gun and demanded money.

The clerk refused the request, leading the man to flea, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies in a sheriff’s office helicopter spotted a man walking near a pond and wading waste-deep into the water.

A group of deputies accompanied by a K9 unit located the man in the water and ordered him to raise his hands and surrender.

Sean Torres, 29, allegedly told deputies he was “just fishing” and had dropped his pole in the water.

Deputies said they questioned Torres about the robbery and he responded: “The guy who did it went that way.”

Torres was arrested, however, when deputies determined his tattoos matched those described by the store clerk. He was charged with robbery and criminal mischief.

“While in the back of a VCSO patrol car, he repeatedly shouted and threw himself against the interior, kicking the doors, damaging the vehicle and causing it to rock,” the sheriff’s office said.

Torres was jailed in lieu of $30,500 bail…

There Will Be No Recount In Pennsylvania: Jill Stein Perpetrating Election Fraud – Defense Watch
.

.
Everything you’ve been reading about a possible recount of the 2016 Presidential Election in Pennsylvania is wrong. There will be no “recount” in Pennsylvania. Book that. It is not speculation. It is legal fact. The broad spectrum of analysis from the blogosphere, Facebook and Twitter is pathetic. Seeing non-lawyer journalists mangle complicated election statutes so brazenly is not only sad but dangerous. It’s giving an emotionally triggered part of the electorate false hope. And it simultaneously creates conditions for the destabilization of the nation when hyper-emotional election expectations are thwarted, as they most certainly will be.

As for Jill Stein’s successful public cry for millions, she claims at her website that “fundraising for Pennsylvania’s voter-initiated recount” has already been complete…
