Intel wants to help US officials
boost chipmaking on American soil

US officials are working with some of the world's leading chipmakers in an effort to expand semiconductor manufacturing capability in the United States, a move intended to reduce the industry's reliance on producers in East Asia for those crucial electronics components. That would be a major shift for an industry that relies heavily on foreign production, largely from Taiwan, South Korea and China. And that transition may already be underway — semiconductor fabrication giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company will soon announce plans to build an advanced chipmaking facility in Arizona to help quell US officials' concern(snip). US officials contend that an investment in domestic semiconductor manufacturing would bolster national security

I don't trust Technology Companies! Non of them! I've been in the IT business for Fortune 100's for over 30 years and I know the junk they produce! I run Intel chips in my 13 year old iMAC, because I didn't want proprietary Apple only technology in my machine. But, my former fascination with having the "latest" technology has worn out! I have an iPhone 6s and will keep it until a usable flip phone becomes feasible! Then I will do away with my smart phone, which I don't even have on half of the time. I'm breaking my addiction to "shiny rocks" as we termed "new" technology being sold to us to replace existing tech. that worked just fine. The new stuff always worked with less functionality and with fewer people available to support it!

Intel squandered its chipmaking supremacy with complacency and arrogance. Now they wave the flag with cynical motive.

#2, I am pretty sure your "off" iPhone is actually on, just pretends to be off unless you let the battery run all the way down. I don't think you can remove the battery from that one.

Instead of Nancy's insanity, why not reward "Americans" for starting a company here that replaces Chinese manufacturing? I looked at. something I bought recently that said "Made in the USA with foreign ingredients" How are we going to win this battle?

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday revived a lawsuit from the Maryland and Washington, D.C. attorneys general that accuses President Trump of violating the Constitution’s Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses by benefiting from use of the Trump International Hotel by foreign and U.S. officials. The case previously had been ordered dismissed by a Fourth Circuit panel. But the full roster of judges reheard the case and, in a 9-6 decision, determined Trump cannot have the court overrule a lower court’s decision to deny him certification to appeal before trial.

World Trade Organization (WTO) Director-General Roberto Azevedo said on Thursday that he will step down from his position effective August 31 after seven years at the helm of the global trade body. Azevedo, a 62-year-old Brazilian career diplomat, stepped down more than a year before his second term as WTO head was due to end. His departure comes at a difficult time for the WTO, which is charged with setting international rules for trade between member states. In December, the US effectively paralyzed the WTO's ability to settle disputes by blocking the appointment of judges to its appellate body.

President Donald Trump pointed the finger at wealthy investors for supposedly manipulating the stock market by making strong statements. In a tweet Wednesday, Trump said to be wary of wealthy investors using their platform to comment negatively about stocks, when they tend to profit from betting against the market. “When the so-called ‘rich guys’ speak negatively about the market, you must always remember that some are betting big against it, and make a lot of money if it goes down,” Trump tweeted. “Then they go positive, get big publicity, and make it going up. They get you both ways. Barely legal?” (snip) his comments followed billionaire hedge fund manager Stanley Druckenmiller’s

Republican Tom Tiffany, a state senator endorsed by President Donald Trump, easily won a special congressional election Tuesday in a heavily conservative, rural Wisconsin district.

In a major showdown over presidential powers, U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday appeared divided over President Donald Trump’s bid to prevent congressional Democrats from obtaining his financial records but seemed more open toward a New York prosecutor’s attempt to secure similar records. The court’s conservative majority signaled concern about improper “harassment” of Trump - who is seeking re-election on Nov. 3 - by three Democratic-led House of Representatives committees seeking his records. In the New York case, the conservative justices joined the court’s liberals in indicating skepticism toward broad arguments by Trump’s lawyer for complete immunity from criminal investigation for a sitting president.
