The official SUV, produced by General Motors (GM), of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) annual “March Madness” tournament is made in China. Last week, Buick — a division of GM — announced its 2021 Buick Envision is the official SUV of March Madness. The Buick Envision is built in China and imported to the U.S. market to sell. GM Authority reported in May 2020: The 2021 Buick Envision debuted just yesterday, dropping in with an all-new second generation for the nameplate. Now, GM Authority has confirmed that the next-gen model will continue to be built in China.


Very 2021.

Ha ha. Since China funds our national debt why shouldn't a car made by them be the mascot of March Madness that is funded by government (China).

Good to know how oligarchs are ruining the USA by shipping manufacturing to China. Is the steel in those cars radioactive? How about the plastic?

I went shopping for a new volt-ohm meter yesterday. I went to two stores that carried different models, all 'made in China'. As I was leaving each I was asked "are you finding what you need?" by employees. In each case, I politely told them, that No, I did not, I only found Chinese stuff, and I will NOT buy stuff made in China. Until they have made in the USA items, they will lose my business. I will spend more time looking for a USA made meter. Not a chance I would ever buy a Chinese vehicle.

A few years back I decided to try an experiment and purchase nothing made in China, this after going to buy cowboy boots at a western store, and all but a few brands were made in China. It is challenging and eye-opening. You learn quickly what you can do without, and feel badly when you don’t stick to your pledge. But it’s something we all should try and do. Why would we finance the country who is plotting our demise and getting rich on the virus they unleashed on the world? Ever look at where most hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes are made?

Coronavirus variants are continuing to spread across the United States, accounting for more and more cases. California's homegrown variant, known as B.1.427/B.1.429, now makes up more than half of infections in the state and 20 to 40 percent of cases in neighboring states. Meanwhile, the UK variant, known as B.1.1.7, has spread to every single state and makes up nearly one in 10 cases in at least two states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has previously suggested B.1.1.7 would become the dominant strain in the U.S. by March, which so far hasn't turned out to be the case.

A man urinated on an Asian woman aboard a Queens-bound subway train over the weekend, cops said Monday. The disgusting act unfolded around 1:30 p.m. Saturday when the creep pulled out his penis on an F train and started to relieve himself, according to police. The horrified woman, who is in her 20s, shifted down the train, but the man then turned and started peeing on the subway seat next to her, splashing her with urine, cops said.(Snip) “I only said one thing, ‘Are you serious?!’” she recalled. “As I looked around, none of the bystanders said or did anything.”

ICE said Monday it has signed a contract to set up more than 1,200 new detention beds to process migrant families, in a move that expands the agency’s ability to test new arrivals for the coronavirus. Tae Johnson, the acting director at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the contract is worth $86.9 million, and it will pay for “temporary shelter and processing services” for families who are not immediately turned back at the border, and who will instead be released into the U.S. The number of such families has been soaring in recent weeks, drawn by changes in immigration policy under the Biden

The richest Americans use crafty methods to dodge taxes on far more income than the feds previously thought, a new study shows. The Internal Revenue Service tries to catch high-income tax evaders with random audits—but they often fail to spot complex schemes that the wealthy employ to hide income, such as offshore bank accounts and pass-through businesses, according to the paper published Monday. In all, the nation’s richest 1 percent fail to report 21 percent of their actual income—and 6 percentage points of that stems from “sophisticated evasion” strategies that federal audits miss, IRS and academic researchers estimate. The bottom 50 percent

As support grows for increasing the number of electric vehicles to reduce air pollution, environmentalists and activists are turning their sights on school buses. Now, the big yellow buses are almost exclusively powered by diesel engines, but that could slowly change. Gov. Phil Murphy included electric school buses when he announced plans last month for the state to help fund $100 million in grants to help towns buy heavy-duty electric vehicles and build charging infrastructure to meet goals to reduce emissions.(Snip) A full-sized 40-foot electric school bus can cost $230,000 to $400,000 per vehicle, two to almost four times the cost

Thousands of Britons rioted into the early hours Monday against plans to give UK police new powers to crackdown on protests—leaving 20 cops injured, including one with a punctured lung, officials said. At least 5,000 people initially joined afternoon protests in Bristol against the planned legislation, BristolLive said, with many carrying placards that condemned a feared “police state” and “dictatorship.” The so-called “Kill the Bill” protests then turned violent when “several thousand” people descended on a police precinct in the southwest England city—sparking a fiery riot raged for hours, the local outlet said. After rioters attempted to push over a police van,

The latest version of the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) will be gender-neutral in how performance is measured but will establish separate ranked tier systems for men and women, military officials said Monday as they rolled out the latest tweak to the Army’s physical performance standards. Army leaders said that both male and female soldiers will be measured on the same numerical scale of 360 to 600, with a 360 score being the minimum threshold. In other words, a man and woman who run a mile in the same amount of time will have their performance measured equally on that point scale,

The woman was on Astor Place in the East Village when a stranger asked for her sign, which read “Hate Has No Peace,” about 11:35 a.m. Sunday, police said. Protesters were flooding into rallies in Union Square Park and Columbus Park in Chinatown, as shown on the front page of Monday’s Daily News. The man tried to stuff the sign in a garbage can

Every adult will be encouraged to test themselves for coronavirus at least twice a week under new plans to help ease Britain out of lockdown. Testing chiefs are pushing the message in the hope of identifying people without symptoms. They believe that getting people to regularly swab is vital in driving down the spread of the virus and an advertising campaign will encourage Britons to 'play their part'. The new drive, revealed by the Times, will be supplemented by national sewage monitoring. It is hoped that areas with rising cases will then be quickly identified and tackled by 'surge testing'-potentially eliminating

No, I hadn't see this news item late last week, about George Bush suddenly not "owing" another president his "silence," in his string of lip-curdling insults directed at President Trump. Guess I don't view him as worth watching much. But sure enough, he had plenty of hateful things to say about President Trump for the left-wing media, and he's the smaller for it. Here were his three worst whoppers, as cited by Business Insider: In an interview with the Texas Tribune's Evan Smith, Bush described how watching the January 6 attack "really disturbed" him, both then and now.
