Trump agenda lands $10B deal for Wisconsin while capital exodus from Canada continues

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

It can be hard to get any real news about the Trump agenda out of Washington and the dishonest fake news media given the media’s increasingly delusional obsession with Russia and alleged yet to be proven collusion

Thankfully you don’t have to get all your information from the fake news media any longer.

Yesterday President Trump, Vice President Pence, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and Speaker Paul Ryan were all at the Whitehouse to announce a major investment decision in what can only described as the Trump agenda coming home.

Taiwanese electronics manufacturing company Foxconn, announced they would invest $10B in Southeast Wisconsin to expand their manufacturing with a brand new facility, initially leading to 3,000 new jobs, or much higher according to President Trump.

This is vintage Trump and exactly what his agenda is all about. It’s the kind of thing he talked about for years leading up to his run and throughout the entire campaign.

Bringing back electronics manufacturing is no small feat. I can’t remember the last electronics company that made anything outside of Asia, and Foxconn isn’t an obscure company. With revenues in excess of $135B and assets over $70B, they produce the electronics we all use everyday.

It’s likely Foxconn wouldn’t have made this investment decision if Donald Trump wasn’t a President whose administration is making serious efforts at tax reform and major tax cuts for corporations.

Contrast Governor Walker and President Trump’s successful pursuit of billions of investment dollars to Canadian Premiers Rachel Notley, John Horgan and our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and their abject failure to lure any new investment.

If anything, their policies have chased billions and billions of dollars out of our country!

In Alberta we’ve seen the exodus of Shell and Conocophillips, and now this week Petronas pulled the plug on between $11-36B dollars in BC’s north for what could have been a massive LNG industry.

The policies of the left hurt the economy of Canada, and this is only being exacerbated by the pro-industry, pro-business policies of the Trump administration as we’ve now been witnessing for six months.

Yet, not one member of Canada’s federal government, not one NDP MLA in BC or Alberta will acknowledge that this country is in big trouble if we don’t change our tune to compete with the U.S..

They’re blind and full of anti-Trump and anti-American sentiment to actually think there is some good that could come to this country with the Trump administration opening up the flow of manufacturing and energy investment back into the U.S..

Believe me, if we had the will, Canada could be hand in hand with the U.S. in bringing jobs back and lowering taxes. But our virtue signalling Liberal and New Democrat politicians are just too busy being partisan ideologues to notice.

The impending collapse of Canada with the unrest that will follow will only embolden Jihadi Justin to pursue his sharia dictatorship once the Heritage Committee “recommends” an Islamophobia Law be enacted. The No Democracy Party (NDP) will vote with the Lieberals to form said dictatorship.

Andrew Stephenson, thanks for outlining how you arrived at your figures.

By the way, I particularly like that graph Breitbart posted of US oil production, showing a near doubling of US oil production 2008-14, as an illustration of how terrible Obama was for the energy industry.

Andrew Stephenson, please explain your post, you are renowned for making outlandish statement”

They’ve been alleviated from needing to pay any tax, whatsoever. The combined value of 3 billion dollars in tax giveaways, divided by 13,000 workers, is rather more than 200,000 dollars per.

Andrew where did you get that BS from? Canada also gives subsidies and we are losing companies. "
You’re telling me corporate welfare doesn’t always work as well as intended?

90% of the Trump economic surge is his freeing the energy sector from globalist plunder through legislated false scarcity”

90% of the economic surge is the economy doing what it’s been doing for the last 5 years. It hasn’t worsened under Trump, but nor has it improved. The stock market surge is speculative and means little when the actual corporate profits are not anywhere close to that. . (this is in contrast to Canada, which just recorded its best economic growth in 17 years).

Foxconn are evil, and they are getting a HUGE tax break to open that plant in Wisconsin. Notice how they just happened to choose a swing state like Wisconsin?

I always wonder how much abuse went into making my Apple products from the slave labor in Foxconn.

90% of the Trump economic surge is his freeing the energy sector from globalist plunder through legislated false scarcity. America and particularly Canada’s economic advantage over our global competitors is low cost abundant energy – Trump as a businessman understands this, Truedough as a sheltered trust fund bubble boy does not – nowhere is the deficit between these two leaders more apparent than in their understanding of economic basics.

Andrew this will still work out well unlike the heavily subsidized green fantasy LMAO!

It is a shame that we have to sit back and watch Canada financially die, as then the Left won’t be receiving Freebees and will vote for someone with economic policies that is able to run the Country.
By then Trudeau should have his long awaited seat in the UN, or some other useless group of people.

The 200k/worker in tax subsidies certainly didn’t hurt either.

Trump is doing exactly as he said he would – make America great again – by putting his own country first.

He is keeping his word and I admire that.

Is that not what every national leader should do?

Seems Canadians elected a true loser in that regard.

Peter Netterville…“Sigh! What can we do to stop these shits?”…Arrest them!..or demand a put down and have a nap/suspension… the extremist grandiosity liberalism is full on full throttle!..71% of Canadians so far that knows what is going on are against the trudeau crew of crooks!! The Yanks had to put up with 8 years of this horse shit!!! Canada should take the lead and do what’s right for civilized humanity and shut the door of the current extremist liberals getting further into Canadian Values and Politics.

trudeau is only in the PMO because of ….

One..Ignorance of the Everyday People who have not been paying attention to who’s in the PM Office. Voting without due diligence!

Two…The evil doer people who have been paying attention are getting out and voting.

Peter Netterville…Well said! How do people elect ideologies that go against jobs, economy and future development…and all for virtue positions that harm the very people who elected them! Drive them all into the sea.

Here in Canada our politicos obstruct and protest against job creation. But they’re entitled progressives…so they must know better than us peons.
commented 2017-07-27 19:25:21 -0400
So Trump gets companies to invest billion into the US and create jobs while Trudeau, Notley, Wynne, and now Horgan as well all pee their pants if unmitigated glee at chasing away billions from Canada.

Sigh! What can we do to stop these shits?

Great report Christopher. Another win for President Trump. Msm will ignore this too.

Liberals and NDP will not rest until we are compared with Venezuela!

Don’t worry Mr. Wilson. The “blind trusts” of Baby Doc, Notley, Wynne, Horgan, Weaver, etc. have noticed and are all taking advantage of the Trump inspired growth in the States.

Well said, Christopher!
