  • Trump to Upstate New Yorkers: Move

    The National Review ^ | July 27, 2017 | Kevin D. Williamson
    Mr. MAGA comes around to the Williamson Plan. And lo, there was a light in the darkness. President Trump has embraced the Williamson Doctrine, the Gospel of U-Haul, the Grand Unified Theory of Getting Off Your Ass and Going Where the Jobs Are. MAGA, kids. MAGA. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump boasted about the new American factories that he expects to be built under his watch — electronics manufacturer Foxconn is planning (probably) a new Wisconsin facility — and then suggested that the people in communities that were not positioned to benefit from these investments might...

    TRENTON -- A tech company is choosing to relocate to Trenton over Wilmington, Delaware, after securing more than $17 million in state tax credits. The state Economic Development Authority on Thursday approved the Grow New Jersey tax credits for Maestro Technologies, a technology consulting and data management systems firm. Now headquartered in Edison, Maestro has a small office in Watchung and several employees who work remotely or at client sites across the country. CEO Kamal Bathla says the company wanted to centrally locate the staff into a new headquarters to better facilitate training, efficiency and product development. Maestro was deciding...

    Tyler DurdenDecember 21, 2016 One week ago, New Yorkers were captivated, and unnerved, by a 40-minute long military exercise in which one USAF C-130 and several HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopters could be seen circling at very low altitudes above Manhattan. While the US military kept silent about the overflight, U.S. Air Force Col. Nicholas Broccoli, the vice commander of the Air National Guard’s 106th Rescue Wing, said the aircraft were conducting "standard military training." However, one look at the flight pattern of the plane shows there was seemingly little that was "standard" about a C-130(snip)Today we learn that the overflights...
  • Tale of Two Tribes: 'Climate Refugees' vs. EPA Victims

    The left has concocted a lucrative category of politically correct victims: "climate refugees." It's the new Green racket. U.S. taxpayers will now be forking over untold billions to ease the pain allegedly inflicted on "carbon's casualties" by industrial activity. By contrast, those who have suffered as a direct result of government incompetence by federal environmental bureaucrats continue to get the shaft. Consider the plight of two tribes: the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw in Louisiana and the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. The New York Times splashed a viral story on its pages this week spotlighting the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's...

    Hi FRiends, I am seriously considering a move to Austin, Texas this summer and I could use your help. In a nutshell, I am tired of the bleak and stagnant Chicago economic climate, the harsh Illinois winters and the Chicago machine. It’s time for a change in my life to find a new opportunity. I am a young marketing professional (30 years old) and have no wife or kids to provide for. Does anyone know of any good employment agencies in the Austin area to find some temporary or permanent work, so I can start my move down south? Any...

    My daughter is graduating this summer--she has a dear friend who lives in Seattle and has suggested my daughter might move out there. Daughter could move anywhere she can find job in her field. My daughter is a conservative tho not a political junkie like her mom LOL. Her friend is probably a moderate, but not particularly political. I have a "moderate" republican friend who said Seattle is just growing by leaps and bounds and lots of young people are moving there. Though I have no direct say in the matter as daughter is an adult and I have not...

    (Reuters) - Americans moving out of state in 2014 were most likely to head to places that were warmer and more affordable, such as the South and Southwest, according to studies by two major moving companies. The 47th annual report by Allied Van Lines showed that Illinois topped the list of states people are moving away from with 1,372 net moves, followed by Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan and New Jersey. The states have remained in the top five since 2010, the company said.

    Hundreds of Muslims trapped in ghetto-like conditions in western Myanmar after their homes were torched by Buddhist mobs last year were moved Saturday to a camp for internally displaced people, officials said. Government spokesman Win Myaing said the relocation from Aung Mingalar quarter in Sittwe township was voluntary. But one well-known activist said many of the families were worried their conditions would go from bad to worse once they left. Myanmar, a predominantly Buddhist country of 60 million, has been gripped by religious violence since military rulers handed over power to a nominally civilian government. …

    New legislation is forcing gun manufacturing company Beretta to uproot and take their business elsewhere. Established in 1526, Beretta holds the distinction of being the oldest active firearms manufacturer in the world. The U.S. factory is located in Accokeek, Maryland, and has been a staple of the local economy for years. Beretta warned that stricter gun control laws would push the company outside of state lines, but that didn’t stop Maryland legislators. Jeffrey Reh, a spokesman for Beretta who also serves as the President of Stoeger Industries under Beretta, announced that the company would begrudgingly uproot and take its business...

    Lone Star State Governor Rick Perry seriously amped up his West Coast recruiting efforts this month in response to California’s passage of Proposition 30, a statewide vote that dramatically increased the state’s personal income tax rate. Taxpayers there will be paying up to 3% more on earned income, and that increase is retroactive to January 1, 2012. More than a thousand miles away from Sacramento, a far more positive outlook counters the frustration felt by many California employees and business owners. Just last week Governor Perry met with 200 Golden State business owners, and two weeks ago he purchased $24,000...

    A year ago my MIL passed away in Los Angeles, and my wife and I have been here in LA dealing with the estate issues. Our home in WA is leased out, and we're about to put my MIL's Los Angeles house on the market. We want to get out of L.A., and since my wife never adjusted to the rain of the Pacific Northwest, we're looking for a new place to live that doesn't have 9 months a year of dreary rain. Texas seems to fit the bill for weather (we plan to have a pool), and is more...

    Oh, Carolina! Italian-Americans from Brooklyn, African-Americans from The Bronx and New Yorkers from the suburbs are flocking to the once sleepy town of Charlotte buoyed by big business like Bank of America and lots of Big Apple transplants. What has been dubbed the "New York phenomenon" swung into high gear around 2005, according to Erin Watkins, research director at the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. There were 2,000 tax returns filed in Charlotte's Mecklenburg County in 2009 by either individuals or married couples who filed in New York City or Long Island the year before, according to IRS data.

    Children at a Gaza refugee camp: Condoleezza Rice, US secretary of state under George Bush, suggested in 2008 that Palestinian refugees could be resettled in Chile and Argentina. Photograph: Ali Ali/EPA Palestinians have expressed shock and dismay at the US suggestion to settle Palestinian refugees in Argentina and Chile rather than let them return to ancestral land in Israel. Representatives of the Palestinian diaspora said the plan to ship displaced Palestinians from the Middle East to a new homeland across the Atlantic clashed with their fundamental right to go home. "It's completely unacceptable. It contradicts our inalienable right to return...

    It's been quite a ride for Harley-Davidson (HOG). The iconic motorcycle company has been cranking out bikes since 1903, and it's one of only two major motorcycle manufacturers to have survived the Great Depression. The first Harley rolled off the line just one year after the first telegraph cable was laid across the Pacific Ocean, and nowadays you can log on to Harley's website to customize your "Hog" or find a dealer on your smart phone. But now there's a rough road ahead for the company. The plant that cranks out Harley's choppers in Milwaukee may finally be at its...

    National Archives An exclusion order posted at First and Front Streets in San Francisco directing removal of persons of Japanese ancestry.On Feb. 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066. There was no mention of relocation centers in the EO, because initially none were envisioned. The purpose was for those of Japanese ancestry to relocate voluntarily, anywhere within the interior, away from the West Coast and areas of strategic military importance. On April 25, 1992, as a UCLA student, I went by bus from campus on a pilgrimage to Manzanar, 230 miles northeast of Los Angeles on the...
