Trump’s America: Apple brings back $350B. Meanwhile, in Trudeau’s Canada...

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


While the mainstream media was arguing about Trump’s tweets, and his weight, and his swearing, something important happened. Something I didn’t think could or would ever happen.

Apple, the largest company in the world, decided it was going to move the cash it had squirrelled away overseas, to get artificially low tax rates, back to America. And pay a $38 billion “repatriation” tax for the privilege of doing so.

All because Donald Trump cut taxes, on both individuals and companies...

Apple said it would invest $30 billion in capital spending in the U.S. over five years that would create more than 20,000 jobs. (...) It also will expand from $1 billion to $5 billion a fund it established last year for investing in advanced manufacturing in the U.S. (...)

All told, Apple said it would directly contribute $350 billion to the U.S. economy over the next five years.

And it's only January.

And the tax cuts have only just kicked in.

No need for showy minimum wage hikes like Rachel Notley and Kathleen Wynne are doing. The American job market is the best in a generation. Unemployment for black Americans, for Hispanic Americans, is the lowest ever recorded.

We should be the best-positioned people in the world to benefit from Trump:

We have a free trade deal with him; we have access to their market; we’re culturally a fit, we’re friends, we have a lot of oil and gas, we should be winners.

Instead, we’ve decided we’re going to be the anti-Trump country.

I am deeply afraid, sad actually, that this will be a national disaster...

NEXT: Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter comes on to explain why "Trudeau's naivete is what really makes him dangerous."

THEN: Immigration lawyer Guidy Mamann and I discuss why people from so-called "sh*thole countries" immigrate to Canada and the U.S., and the differing laws they face in both nations when doing so.

He also makes a stunning prediction about Syrian refugees to Canada...

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

I didn’t vote for those dopes but I don’t have to work anymore either. Canada is probably going to get seriously hurt. So be it. Let those morons who voted Lieberal lose their jobs. Too bad, soooo sad……

Intel and AMD produce most of their microprocessor chips in the USA. There is lots of advanced tech in America.

I agree with Ezra about the Jordan Peterson interview (and Tammy); I watched the video this morning and talk about putting words in others mouth. The interviewer wasn’t listening at all to what he said. It was pathetic!

Canada is currently governed by a Ship of Fools.

“Ship Of Fools”

The human race was dyin’ out
Noone left to scream and shout
People walking on the moon
Smog will get you pretty soon

Everyone was hanging out
Hanging up and hanging down
Hanging in and holding fast
Hope our little world will last

Yeah, along came Mr. Goodtrips
Looking for a new a ship
Come on, people better climb on board
Come on, baby, now we’re going home
Ship of fools, ship of fools

The human race was dyin’ out
Noone left to scream and shout
People walking on the moon
Smog will get you pretty soon
Ship of fools, ship of fools
Ship of fools, ship of fools
Ship of fools, ship of fools

Poor Andrew, another failed analogy. How about you swing your stuff elsewhere!!! ( I wanted to say dick, but, you have revealed you are a cis-gendered female!)

Don’t worry everyone in Alberta , long established business’s are closing down but Andrew says everything is better, nothing to worry about.
commented 2018-01-19 21:15:21 -0500
Andrew who was Pres in 2010? And Canada has created many government jobs and Obama created many part time. Sorry but your sad deflecting is not going to fool anyone.
commented 2018-01-19 21:14:18 -0500
Andrew LMAO! Yeah sure. You are getting pathetic.
commented 2018-01-19 21:12:16 -0500
Andrew no they haven’t. And why didn’t they do it until now genius? Gonna be funny hearing your pathetic excuses for 7 more years.

Stephen Hicken commented 2018-01-18: “I retired from the auto sector. I think there are still about 350 thousand workers still there.If the US even pulls back 100 to 150 thousand jobs back to America Trudeau will fall next election”

When NAFTA fails, I expect the auto industry in Canada will all but disappear. All those jobs (votes) lost will mean nothing to Jihadi Justin as he has already gamed the next election (if there is even one after M 103 has been weaponized) to keep himself and the Lieberals in power.

I cannot find anything in the Canadian media or some US media of Apple or Fiat announcements. Guess thats par for the course
commented 2018-01-19 12:52:10 -0500
Apple’s been talking about that for more than a year. It’s not new.

Incidentally, beyond the speculation in the stock market (which is at least partly driven by the flow out of bonds, which nobody realizes, have collapsed), the economy isn’t markedly better under Trump than it was under Obama. Job creation just had its worst year since 2010 in the US.

“Trudeau’s Csnada” actually had a much better year, economically, than the US did in 2017.

With one word Donald Trump shattered the desperate delusions of millions upon millions of lefties…a word he may have never even used! LOL!
Liberal heads are exploding everywhere, on past the horizon line, further than the eye can see!

Doreen, the reason that the Liberals are flooding Canada with these “un-vetted” refugees is for the same reason that Ted Kennedy started the flood of refugees to America back in the mid 60’s. More Democrat Voters, because no SANE American would vote for the Democrat Party & their “socialist” policies & the Democrats realized that the mostly uneducated, welfare-dependent, immigrants from 3rd World countries would always be dependent on the Gov’t & always vote Democrat to keep the gravy train rolling.
Here in Canada, the Liberals are trying to do the same thing.
We need our own Donald J. Trump & FAST or we will be beyond the point of no return, if we are not past it already!

The TRUMPSTER was magnanimous in his acceptance speech in 2016 , saying he would govern fairly, including the population that voted against him , if the car manufacturers in the u s a could come up with a medium priced battery powered car to reflect their idealology against TRUMP , and came up with a catchy model name -- Dossier 1 , it would go along way to heel the republic

Clown Boy couldn’t run a girls scout cookie drive if he had help. Trump seems to be getting the job done.

Last week another dumb ass walked into Manitoba when it was super cold. Dumb ass ended up getting frost bite. I would laugh, but the joke is on me, as it costs the already depleted health care system in Manitoba.

As for Apple, they are evil. Make no mistake about it. THey abuse workers by contracting out to Fox Con. Apple slowed the older phones down using some dishonest battery excuse. Their hardware is ridiculously over priced. And then there was the removal of the ear phone jack, just so that they can sell us their own wireless ear phones. For all I care, I hope apple goes back to being on life support like they used to be without Steve Jobs.

I too fantasize about the “what if” Harper had won the last election (or if he’d called a leadership convention and someone like O’Leary, Remple, or Wall were PM). Can you imagine 2 of the richest countries in the world having leaders that wanted to make Canada/US Great Again? We’d have a Canada-US free trade agreement (sorry Mexico), a joint agreement on migrants and refugees (non-globalist), joint agreements on environmental protection (not the Paris climate accord scam). A FoxNews North/Rebel-on-cable (to balance out our leftist MSM).
Can you imagine?

Krispy. Hadn’t heard Zanzibar before. Sounds very night clubish with emphasis on the trumpet. Piano Man is in the same category and the middle part of Zansibar reminded me of Steely Dan. There is so many things to like about Joel and his talent. His upbringing taking piano lessons in New York and getting harassed when walking along the way is something he recounted. The guy is a real talent as song writer, singer, piano player, manager, producer. He knows how to do pretty much all of it and is no dummy when it comes to distribution, marketing and all of the contractual stuff. When New York did a benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy victims Joel stole the show. I think it was his song Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song) that did the trick.

Love your show. Generally enjoy your guests however tonight I found Guidy Mamann quite out of touch with what is going on with Canadian immigration. His prediction that most of the Syrian Refugees are going to return to their country of origin is really misleading and I wonder why he would say that? The present government is trying to change our democracy to fit with their lifestyle. Why would it be trying to do this if these people were not planning on staying? Furthermore the Canadian Liberal government is planning on another million of these immigrants over the next 2 or 3 years? At present about 90% are still on welfare or on “make work” jobs…not very healthy for any economy. Not what immigration to Canada was intended for. So sad to say but I am not really buying what Guidy is saying.
