Walmart=Made in USA?

I will believe it when I see it.

Is US manufacturing heading for a revival? The world’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart, is leading a new effort to bring more manufacturing jobs back to this country. The company’s many critics may see this as more than a little ironic as Wal-Mart’s decades-long push for low prices were part of the trend that sent production and jobs overseas to low-wage suppliers.With rising American productivity, increases in Chinese labor costs and falling energy prices, there could be good reasons to bring more work home. “We are entering a new era of opportunity to boost American manufacturing,” US Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker told a two-day conference in Orlando. The goal of the event was to work out how to “drive investment in American manufacturing,” said Bill Simon, CEO of the US division of Wal-Mart. What remains to be seen is whether this is more of a PR campaign than the start of a major shift after three decades of decline for many sectors of US manufacturing.

RNC Threatens CNN/NBC Over Hillary Programs

Good.  Since these programs were announced, I have thought of them as fishy.  Glad to see that the RNC sees this for what it is as well.

The Republican National Committee is threatening not to partner with NBC and CNN on future presidential debates unless they halt production of recently announced programs about Hillary Clinton, according to letters RNC Chairman Reince Priebus sent to network heads.NBC announced in July that the network would air a four-hour miniseries about the former first lady called “Hillary,” and CNN Films is producing a documentary about her as well.In letters addressed to NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt and CNN President Jeff Zucker on Aug. 5, Priebus warned that RNC members intend to vote on a resolution at their party-wide meeting later this month to shut out the networks from partnering with the party on Republican primary debates if they do not cancel the programs.”Out of a sense of fairness and decency and in the interest of the political process and your companys reputation, I call on you to cancel this political ad masquerading as an unbiased production,” Priebus wrote. “If you have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNCs Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote of the RNC stating that the committee will neither partner with you in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates which you sponsor.”Both parties traditionally partner with news outlets to broadcast presidential debates in both the primary and general elections.The move by the RNC suggests that the party views the upcoming films about a Clinton, a possible Democratic presidential candidate who regularly leads in early polls of likely Democratic voters, as a way to promote her as a candidate.

Barry Soetoro Voter Registration

This is very interesting. Cannot possibly be a coincidence. This proves his name is not Barack Obama. For additional information, and the article that I read that led me do my own search (my screenshot is on the left), you can go here:
