JOBS ROARING! HYUNDAI & KIA $3 BILLION INVESTMENT IN U.S. – NOT EVEN PRESIDENT YET, TRUMP ADDS/SAVES 1.2 MILLION JOBS
Gateway Pundit – Hyundai-Kia has announced that they will be investing over $3 Billion in the United States to boost their manufacturing efforts and to avoid getting hit by a massive tariff that will be imposed on companies that manufacture outside the U.S. and export their products into the country
Earlier today, The Gateway Pundit reported that Donald Trump has already created/saved over 1.2 million jobs in the U.S. despite not being sworn in to the Oval Office until Friday.
From The Detroit News:
Hyundai Motor Co. and affiliate Kia Motors Corp. said they will spend $3.1 billion in the U.S. in the next five years, joining other vehicle manufacturers in announcing investment plans amid threats from President-elect Donald Trump of higher levies on auto imports from Mexico.
The planned U.S. investment by South Korea’s two largest automakers is about 50 percent more than the $2.1 billion they spent in the previous five-year period, Hyundai Motor President Chung Jin-haeng told reporters in Seoul on Tuesday. The group is considering building a new factory in the U.S. and may produce Hyundai Motor’s upscale Genesis vehicles and a U.S.-specific SUV in the country, said the executive, who also oversees the strategic planning for Kia.
“We expect a boost in the U.S. economy and increased demand for various models as President-elect Trump follows through on his promise to create one million jobs in five years,” Chung said. “We will actively consider introducing new models that have increasing demand and profits.”
Hyundai Motor and Kia join a growing list of automakers announcing investments in the U.S., even though they have yet to be singled out by Trump. Toyota Motor Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said this month they’ll spend on U.S. plants after the president-elect threatened for months to slap Mexico-built vehicles with a 35 percent import tax. Carmakers are eager to cooperate with the incoming administration as they prepare to ask for favors including weaker fuel economy rules and lower corporate taxes.
TRUMP HAD 1 MILLION JOBS MEETING WITH JACK MA, CHINESE BILLIONAIRE AND FOUNDER OF ONLINE RETAIL GIANT ALIBABA
Donald Trump 1 million jobs meeting with Chinese billionaire and Alibaba founder Jack Ma! Whew!
Ma said that Alibaba’s expansion would focus on products like garments, wine and fruits, with a special focus on trade between the American midwest and southeast Asia.
“We’re focused on small business,” Ma told reporters. “We specifically talked about … supporting 1 million small businesses, especially in the Midwest of America. Small businesses on the platform selling products — agriculture products and America services — to China and Asia, because we’re pretty big in Asia.”
Where those jobs would come from is unclear. While an Alibaba spokesperson told CNBC before the meeting that the Chinese online retail giant company would create 1 million jobs over five years, Ma’s comments focused on supporting small businesses.
“Alibaba will create 1 million U.S. jobs by enabling 1 million American small businesses and farmers to sell American goods to China and Asian consumers on the Alibaba platform,” the company said in a statement.
Fiat Chrysler said Sunday it would spend $1 billion on U.S. manufacturing, including modernizing plants in Michigan and Ohio, in a move that’s set to add 2,000 new jobs, Reuters reported.
According to the company’s plan, the plant in Warren, Michigan will be made capable of producing a pickup truck currently built in Mexico.
The Warren plant will make the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer large SUVs. A plant in Toledo, Ohio also will get new equipment to make a new Jeep pickup.
The move by Fiat Chrysler follows a similar recent announcement made by a competing auto brand.
On Tuesday, Ford said it would cancel a $1.6 billion plant planned for Mexico and instead invest $700 million in a Michigan assembly plant. Though CEO Mark Fields said the decision would have gone ahead whether or not Donald Trump was elected president, Fields also said Trump’s “pro-growth policies” gave the company’s executives confidence.
A $3 Philadelphia Beverage Tax, spearheaded by Mayor Jim Kenney, takes effect on January 1, 2017. The 1.5 cents per ounce tax will cause beverage products to double in price.
“Items such as juice drinks, sodas, teas, sports drinks and fountain sodas will no longer be affordable for many Philadelphia residents,” said David McCorkle, PFMA president and chief executive officer. “This unfair tax will really hurt Philadelphia consumers, who are already challenged to pay for groceries.”
Nearly 4,000 products will be subject to the tax. For example, a gallon of Turkey Hill Lemonade will go up from $2.68 a gallon to $4.60 a gallon, and a 64 oz. bottle of Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice will increase from $2.68 to $3.70.
I expect New York City or San Fran but not Philadelphia…Happy New Year Philadelphia Democrats!

CIA AND WASHINGTON POST CONNECTION THRU OWNER JEFF BEZOS: WHY THEIR $600 MILLION DEAL SHOULD BE DISCLOSED WHENEVER IT REPORTS ON THE AGENCY
In 2013 CIA awarded $600 million deal to Amazon, whose founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is owner of Washington Post. Critics charge that the Post needs to disclose its CIA link whenever it reports on the agency, just like what it did recently with reports that secret CIA assessment shows Russia hacked election in order to help Trump win. But this assessment is not being shared by other intelligence agencies like the FBI because of lack of intel proof, making it suspicious why Washington Post created a CIA headline knowing the rest of intel communities are not in favor of their ‘secret assessment.’ Washington Post campaigned against Trump the way CNN did their part via television.
Meanwhile, a petition campaign was launched related to news that Amazon, under the Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, recently secured a $600 million contract from the CIA. That’s at least twice what Bezos paid for the Post this year. Bezos recently disclosed that the company’s Web-services business is building a “private cloud” for the CIA to use for its data needs.
Critics charge that, at a minimum, the Post needs to disclose its CIA link whenever it reports on the agency. Over 15,000 have signed the petition this week hosted by RootsAction.
WHITE FEMINIST LEAH KIRSCH USES JAY Z LYRICS ON ‘MILLIONEIRESS’ CLOTHING LINE, GETS HATE LOAD FROM BLACKS FOR PROFITING FROM BLACK CULTURE
New Age white feminist Leah Kirsch created Millioneiress clothing line, used lyrics from rapper Jay Z and now the black community are giving her a load of hate because she is using black culture ( and she’s white ) in order to make a profit. A sacrilege, of course! I agree with critics about her pricey jackets. I call them ‘gentifried ghettos’.

The rap music industry created billionaires and millionaires while using the most disgusting lyrics under the guise of being ‘ghetto authentic.’
Millioneiress was founded in 2013 during Leah’s senior year at Fordham University.
Her ideas quickly transformed into a lifestyle brand encompassing her
nonconformist finesse and inspiration from many.
The brand is created to empower women to be unapologetically themselves,
to recognize her uniqueness and embrace her flaws just as much as her assets.
For so long, women have been told to be poised, polite, and pretty.
Leah is re-defining sexy and changing the way women carry themselves.
She explains, “It’s about effortlessly saying and expressing what
you want to say – sometimes even without talking.”
“New-age feminism,” Leah calls it, “it has been long enough now
that we have been ‘polite,’ it’s time to make a scene.”
