Calm down please

Normally we’d be totally in sync with Market Steyn (lorry control!) and Scott Johnson (truck driver control!) when it comes to the media’s fey reporting of Islamic murder sprees. But the NYT article isn’t all that bad, except for something about someone who killed someone over Brexit.

Our basic point is that the facts are the facts and media no longer control the narrative. The NYT piece cited 9 examples of Islamic terrorism, and had to scrape to come up with the Brexit business. Of course young people are still being turned into idiots and that’s a big problem. We’ll have to see what happens to fools like Merkel, but since the success of the UK vote on the EU, trends have mostly been moving in one direction.

As for the US, there’s a new sheriff in town, and VDH has a fascinating piece on him. America has had almost zero business entrepreneur presidents. We have no idea how things will play out, but the moment is perfect for that kind of CEO mentality.

    I am reading the new auto pipeline is stuffed. The subprime auto loans that have goosed sales are starting to go sour and that there will be massive auto layoffs in January.

    My crystal ball says the media will blame the layoffs on Trump (even though he won’t yet have taken office) and what is he going to do about it?

    “Car Recession” Bites GM: Inventory Glut, Layoffs, Plant Shutdowns

    From the article:

    GM has been reacting to its fabulously ballooning inventory glut by piling incentives on its vehicles. But that hasn’t worked all that well though it cost a lot of money. Now it’s time to get serious.

    It will temporarily close five assembly plants in January and lay off over 10,000 employees, spokeswoman Dayna Hart said today. Plants that assemble cars will be hit, according to the AP:
