What the heck are they doing there in the first place? Government Motors needs to bring the jobs back here. I believe GM has a plant or 2 in the US they can use.

The company says it will defend itself legally and that it´s confident that justice eventually will prevail.

Good luck with that. The factory belongs to "the people of Venezuela" now.

Wait a cotton picking minute; "GM HALTS operations" That´s like Clinger stops driving after he was carjacked.

Halts operations sounds so, well, sort of a decision they made because things were getting a little dicey. The bloody factory was seized they didn´t halt doodly squat it was seized for crisakes.

Trying to soften it there a wee bit there AP?

Its what Commies do. Steal other people´s property. Communist governments have a history of doing this. Everything, all private property, becomes ´government owned´. Anyone in the US that thinks Communism is a good idea needs to wise up. Communism is government run by thieves. GM should know better. Perhaps GM is run by a bunch of Globalist lefties who believe in ´leveling´ the playing field. It just cost them a bundle of money. As long as Venezuelan courts are run by Communists, GM cannot get its property back.

The really funny part is that without technical support and parts from the US, the plant is useless to Venezuela. They may be able to get a few bucks for the machines and scrap metal. Nice going, GM, you are still idiots.

PARIS -- French voters shut out the political mainstream from the presidency for the first time in modern history, and on Monday found themselves being courted for the runoff election between populist Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron.French politicians on the moderate left and right, including the Socialist and Republicans party losers in Sunday´s vote, immediately urged voters to block Le Pen´s path to power in the May 7 contest.Voters narrowed the presidential field from 11 to two. Both that vote and the May 7 runoff are widely seen as a litmus test for the populist wave that

   

 



 
Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I. From Politics.

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

Dear Reader (I said “reader.” This will not be the venue for Caitlyn Jenner’s nude debut.), Bill O’Reilly is leaving Fox, and I can’t say I’ll miss him.

Caracas faced another tense day after massive protests against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, with barricades of trash and debris in the streets, shuttered businesses and sporadic blossoms of tear gas. Demonstrators take a fallen tree from a truck to use it as a barricade during a protest in Caracas on April 20. A coalition of opposition parties called for continued demonstrations Thursday like those the previous day in the capital and major cities. Hundreds of thousands turned out to rally against Maduro’s grip on the country’s institutions, and his policies that have left the economy in tatters. Clashes between protesters, security forces

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

Although President Donald J.

That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes.

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.
