    "MADE IN AMERICA" Week Begins Today - Products Exhibited by Each State Listed

    White House planning 'Made in America' week
    By jill colvin, associated press

    PISCATAWAY TOWNSHIP, New Jersey — Jul 16, 2017, 12:28 PM ET

    Plagued by daily revelations related to the escalating Russia investigations, the White House is dubbing the coming week "Made in America week" as it tries to focus on issues that matter to the president's base. Speaking to reporters at a hotel near President Donald Trump's golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, White House director of media affairs Helen Aguirre Ferre said Sunday that the White House will be hosting a "Made in America" product showcase Monday featuring products from all 50 states. (Looking for descriptions of these "products from all 50 states" - does anyone know what their own state has submitted???)

    The president also is expected to issue a proclamation Wednesday on the importance of making goods in America, and will travel to Virginia on Saturday for the commissioning of the USS Gerald R. Ford, a new aircraft carrier.

    "For too long our government has forgotten the American worker. Their interests were pushed aside for global projects and their wealth was taken from the communities and shipped overseas," said Ferre. "Under the leadership of President Donald Trump, not only will the American worker never be forgotten, but they will be championed."

    Trump has pledged to bring back U.S. manufacturing jobs lost to technological innovation and outsourcing by scaling back regulations and renegotiating the country's trade deals. It's an issue that resonates with the president's base, and one that senior aides sought to highlight Sunday as the president spent the weekend attending the U.S. Women's Open golf championship at a course he owns.

    The effort comes amid escalating inquiries into possible ties between Trump campaign aides and the Russian government, which intelligence agencies have concluded meddled in the 2016 election in an effort to help Trump win. But critics have accused Trump of hypocrisy when he's pushed "Made in America" in the past because so many of the products he and his family members have sold over the years were manufactured overseas. That includes merchandise sold under his own name and his eldest daughter's, including clothing items and shoes.

    Asked whether the president would use his "Made in America" week to commit the Trump organization and his daughter's brand to make more of their products in America, rather than overseas, Ferre was non-committal. "We'll get back to you on that," she said. The president's financial assets are currently being held in a trust. Ivanka Trump stepped back from day-to-day management of her brand before taking on an official role as a White House adviser.

    The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace .

    The only place I've read about it (but I've not heard anything) is on the conservative treehouse website:

    A POLICE officer has been injured after a car crashed into a barrier and police car in Washington. Emergency crews rushed to the scene, carrying out a controlled explosion in the suspect car’s boot after the crash.

    FYI:The US Cap Police are preparing to disrupt a suspicious vehicle on the Hill. There will be a loud noise associated in approx 5 minutes

    — Senate Press Gallery (@SenatePress) July 17, 2017

    NBC Washington reported a robot was used as part of the controlled explosions.

    United States Capitol Police said the car had been on Independence Avenue when it collided with a barrier about 11.45am local time. They said: “The driver was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries. “A USCP officer was also transported to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released.”

    The Senate Press Gallery warned that a “loud noise” would be heard in the wake of the incident. Police added: “The USCP conducted a thorough investigation of the vehicle, including disrupting its trunk twice as a routine precaution. The vehicle was cleared with negative results.”

    They said there was no evidence the incident was terror related. The suspect was charged with assault with a deadly weapon-vehicle, assaulting a police officer, aggravated reckless driving and no valid permit. Witnesses reported buildings in the area were evacuated during the drama.

    US Capitol Police said: “The U.S. Capitol Police are continuing to investigate a suspicious vehicle located at Second Street and Independence Avenue SE. “As a result of this investigation, the following road closures are in effect:

    – Independence Avenue between Washington Avenue SW and Third Street SE

    – Pennsylvania Avenue between Second and Third Streets SE

    – Second Street between East Capitol and C Streets SE

    – First Street between East Capitol Street and Independence Avenue SE

    “All staff and other personnel are directed to avoid this area until further notice.”

    Trump’s ‘Made in America’ showcase: These products made the list

    By Brittany De Lea , Sydney Devoe Published July 17, 2017 White House FOXBusiness Opens a New Window.

    President Donald Trump kicked off “Made in America” week at the White House Monday, as he hosted a product showcase featuring items from homegrown businesses in each state.

    “We want to build, create and grow more products in our country, using American labor, American goods, and American grit," Trump said Monday. "When we purchase products in the USA the profits stay here, the revenues stay here, and the jobs … stay right here in the USA.”

    From big companies like Caterpillar (CAT) and Campbell’s Soup (CPB) to smaller businesses, including flag and broom makers, here’s a look at the companies that the president met with Monday and what they make in the USA.

    the list can be seen at the link above.

    Both the damaged police car and the Honda Accord coupe were cleared from the site about 1730-EOD blew the butt end off the Accord because they thought something might have been inside.

    But the Made in America thing is getting airplay on all the stations (radio and TV) in the DC area. All the stations are talking it up.

    The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace .

    I'm surprised at our Louisiana company. We're not exactly a big league baseball State, in fact, our minor league "The Zephers" recently renamed their club, "BABY CAKES!!" (As in a reference to the King Cake Baby I guess.)

    Louisiana: Marucci Sports

    Founded by two former Big League baseball players and their athletic trainer more than a decade ago, Marucci handcrafts quality bats. The company makes the number one bat in the Big Leagues, according to its website.
