….are all coming back to the U.S. So is everyone else. We now have the best Economy in the World, the envy of all. Get that big, beautiful plant in Ohio open now. Close a plant in China or Mexico, where you invested so heavily pre-Trump, but not in the U.S.A. Bring jobs home!
2…………> Limits Student Loan Borrowing: $1 Trillion+
“The White House is urging Congress to set new limits on student loan borrowing by graduate students and parents, as part of a larger package spelling out the Trump administration’s priorities for higher education legislation,” Emily Wilkins reports for Bloomberg Government.

3…………> Small Town MD vs Billionaire SP500 Monster: Humility vs Arrogance
The billionaires supporters and the owners of “Fake News” networks, all controlled by the Council of the Foreign Relations, the true, invisible and illegal government of USA have been criminally and morally dishonest in their attacks on President Trump’s agenda, especially the opioid epidemic that had turned whole regions of Appalachia and other parts of inner America into war zones of the Obama’s silent drug war.
But Americans are good, and a humble small town MD named Dr. Art Van Zee was there at the beginning of America’s 20-year-old opioid crisis, when in the late 1990s, he noticed his small town of St. Charles in Lee County, rural Virginia, falling apart, as healthy young people accompanied by concerned parents and grandparents started reporting addiction to a powerful new prescription painkiller, OxyContin.
St. Charles is a community built on coal, and would be the unfortunate canary in the mine warning of hundreds of thousands of deaths in the opioid crisis that would follow, and now the town’s humble community medical centre has become an unlikely rallying point for an enormous class action against Purdue Pharmaceutical, OxyContin’s manufacturer.
4…………> Applied Global Warming: US MidWest Historic Floods
A hurricane-like weather phenomenon that scientists call a “bomb cyclone” hit the western Rocky Mountains and US Central Plains last week, showering snow and freezing rains on millions of Americans in Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota
Fremont County Emergency Management Director Mike Crecelius told the Associated Press that it was not just the amount of water breaching levees and riverbanks, but also the swiftness of it that has been creating a dangerous hazard.
In a statement, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers explained that “warm temperatures and rain the last few days have caused much of the heavy snowpack and ice to melt resulting in flooding, ice jams, and rivers and creeks to rise“.
Aleido Rojas Galan, 52, was swept away in a vehicle in south-western Iowa on Friday while 50-year-old James Wilke was killed in Nebraska when a bridge collapsed as he tried to help motorists.
On Sunday, police in Platte County, Nebraska, confirmed 80-year-old Betty Hamernik died after emergency crews were unable to reach her home in the rapid floodwaters.
5…………> Honoring Master Chief William Charette: Naming DDG 130
Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer has named a future Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, DDG 130, in honor of Medal of Honor recipient, Hospital Corpsman Master Chief William Charette.
Charette, a native of Ludington, Michigan, joined the Navy in 1951 and served in the Korean War in the Fleet Marine Force (FMF) as a hospital corpsman attached to Company F, Third Platoon, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division.
“The actions of Hospital Corpsman William Charette will neither be forgotten or diminished,” Spencer said.
“Charette put himself at extreme risk during intense combat to render aid to Marines in need. His efforts saved lives and I am honored that his legacy will live on in the future USS William Charette (DDG 130).”
Charette was presented the Medal of Honor for his actions on March 27, 1953, when Chinese soldiers in North Korea attacked and overran two of three Marine hill outposts. During a counterattack, an enemy grenade landed near Charette who was providing aid to a wounded Marine. Charette placed himself on top of the Marine to shield him from the explosion. The blast rendered Charette unconscious but when he awoke he continued to aid Marines, including using torn parts of his uniform in order to dress battle wounds, his own battle vest to shield a wounded Marine, and exposing himself to incoming rounds in order to carry wounded Marines to safety.
Arleigh-Burke class destroyers conduct a variety of operations from peacetime presence and crisis response to sea control and power projection.
The ship will be constructed at Bath Iron Works, a division of General Dynamics in Bath, Maine. The ship will be 509 feet long, have a beam length of 59 feet and be capable of operating at speeds in excess of 30 knots.
