    Boeing Co. and Airbus SE voiced concerns about a proposed tie-up of two leading suppliers Tuesday, potentially upsetting United Technologies Corp.ís $23 billion acquisition of Rockwell Collins Inc. The worldís largest planemakers added to the chorus of skeptics of a deal that would create an aerospace behemoth with a range of products to outfit jetliners and warplanes. Investors sent United Technologies shares plunging by the most in two years, while credit ratings companies said the manufacturer risks downgrades. Boeing, which has been squeezing suppliers for discounts, warned it would take action to protect itself if it saw the merger as...

    American Thinker ^ | 8/18/2016
    You can have Milwaukee. For the best example of black mob violence and media denial over the last few days, Iíll take Cedar Rapids. People outside of Milwaukee may be a bit surprised that last week hundreds of black people burned down businesses, threw bricks at cops, attacked white people, and created an enormous amount of mayhem. All because police killed a member of that cityís black criminal elite after he pointed a stolen gun at them. The New York Times certainly was -- it even dug up a few locals to say so. But on the porches of Milwaukee,...

  • Aossey Sentenced in Halal Scam

    02/29/2016 9:12:08 AM PST · by iowamark · 3 replies
    A Cedar Rapids businessman convicted of mislabeling Halal meat will spend 2 years in prison. 74-year-old Bill Aossey, founder of Midamar, was sentenced in federal court Thursday morning on federal fraud charges. The sentence also calls for three years of supervision after release and a $60,000 fine. During the hearing the judge repeatedly scolded Aossey for committing perjury during his trial in court last year. Aosseyís conviction originally called for a 9 to11 year sentence. The judge cut the sentence due to Aosseyís age of 74 and the unlikeliness that he would commit another offense. Aossey was convicted by a...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said late Saturday that most Republicans are skeptical of climate change because billionaire donors David and Charles Koch tell them to be. "Most of them are not that ill-informed," she said during a campaign rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. "They just have to do what the Koch brothers tell them. They say, 'don't believe your lying eyes - listen to us.' " Clinton warned America's economy would slip behind other nations if lawmakers keep debating climate change instead of acting. "Some country is going to be the 21st Century clean energy superpower," she said. "I...

    The criminal trial of George Zimmerman ended with a jury finding him not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin. Throughout the trial, ďstand your groundĒ was mentioned several times. While the rules of ďstand your groundĒ vary state-to-state, this particular law allows deadly force in self-defense situations. According to Cedar Rapids attorney Sara Riley, Iowa does not currently have a ďstand your groundĒ law. Riley said so-called this type of law allows citizens in some states to take deadly action toward anyone they deem a threat. ďIf somebody hits you, and youíre fearful of your life, you could kill...
