Abbott Economy: Samsung to Build $17 Billion Chip Factory in Texas

Korean tech giant Samsung recently announced that it plans to invest around $17 billion to build a semiconductor manufacturing facility in Taylor, Texas. The plant will be Samsung’s largest investment in the United States, and according to Gov. Greg Abbott, the “largest foreign direct investment in the state of Texas ever.”

The Wall Street Journal reports that on Tuesday, Samsung announced plans to invest around $17 billion in a semiconductor manufacturing facility in Taylor, Texas. This marks the latest chip manufacturing commitment this year in the middle of a global chip shortage. Gov. Greg Abbott (R) called the plan “the largest foreign direct investment in the state of Texas ever,” speaking at a press conference with Samsung officials.

Samsung stated that the factory would be the company’s largest U.S. investment and would primarily be used to produce high-end chips used in smartphones and other devices, likely employing 2,000 Texans in high-tech jobs. Construction for the facility is scheduled to start next year and the first chips should be made at the factory in the second half of 2024.

“As we add a new facility in Taylor, Samsung is laying the groundwork for another important chapter in our future,” said Kinam Kim, Vice Chairman, and CEO of Samsung Electronics Device Solutions. “With greater manufacturing capacity, we will be able to better serve the needs of our customers and contribute to the stability of the global semiconductor supply chain.”

“We are also proud to be bringing more jobs and supporting the training and talent development for local communities, as Samsung celebrates 25 years of semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S.,” Kim said.

Chip demand has increased massively in recent years driven primarily by the mass adoption of digital tools during the pandemic, the rollout of 5G communications networks, and the increased manufacturing of 5G enabled devices.

Breitbart News recently reported that another major chip manufacturer, Intel, has had some setbacks in recent years but has unveiled a plan to revitalize U.S. chip manufacturing.

Along with major upgrades to existing manufacturing facilities, the chip giant plans a major new facility in Arizona. In the near future, the company will announce the location of a $100 billion manufacturing complex with the goal of raising American chip manufacturing to 30 percent of worldwide production.

The Incredible Self-Confidence Of Robert ‘Beto’ Francis O’Rourke

The Incredible Self-Confidence Of Robert ‘Beto’ Francis O’Rourke

The audacious confidence of Democrat Robert “Beto” Francis O’Rourke is something to behold. As a failed Senate and presidential candidate who has never won a statewide race, his hope to become the next governor of Texas is a longshot, but that’s not deterring him from an attempt at failing upward.

Maybe O’Rourke’s hubris shouldn’t come as a surprise after he essentially claimed he was “born” to be president in 2019, but that’s only one of his problems. At a time more than half of Texas disapproves of Democratic President Joe Biden and Democrats are already bracing for 2022 midterm beat down, O’Rourke’s own party serves as a major obstacle, but not more than O’Rourke himself.

O’Rourke ran a competitive and energetic race against Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018. He went from a no-name congressman to capturing moderate voters and even flipped some historically red counties in Texas (even if it was thanks to an abundance of favorable media attention). This time around, he enters the gubernatorial race a much weaker candidate after recently running a clown show of a presidential campaign in which he endorsed far-left agenda items like enthusiastically promising to take away Americans’ guns.

“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” O’Rourke declared from the presidential debate stage in Houston. He dropped out before the Iowa primary.

O’Rourke’s announcement also likely comes with prayers that the very popular, allegedly bipartisan Matthew McConaughey does not enter the race. The actor has flirted with the idea of running for more than a year now, but not given an answer.

O’Rourke has said he’s aware of how well McConaughey polls against Gov. Greg Abbott, compared to his own polling against the incumbent. A University of Texas poll last month showed O’Rourke behind Abbott by 9 points, and found that more Texas voters have a negative opinion about O’Rourke than a positive one.

For now, he faces Abbott, who is certainly not the villain Cruz was in 2018, nor the DeSantis clone or hardcore conservative that corporate media make him out to be. Texans know that Abbott is nothing more your typical establishment, Big Business Republican governor, who brought in nearly 400,000 more total votes than Cruz did in 2018.

That is not to say that Abbott is some unbeatable opponent, but that the voters O’Rourke would need to pull off a victory include that cross-section of Texans who voted for Abbott but not Cruz. O’Rourke has a lot of ground to make up for in clawing his way back to the middle from the far-left campaign he most previously ran, and he knows it. He said so as much at his announcement on Monday.

“I want to make sure that we have a governor that serves everyone, helps to bring this state together to do the really big things before us and get past the small, divisive politics and policies of Greg Abbott,” he told The Texas Tribune.

Does O’Rourke have the discipline it will take to stay on this message? It’s doubtful he will come even anywhere close to the middle on the issues that he’s already hitting Abbott on like the pro-life heartbeat bill, constitutional carry, and election integrity, but it will be fun to watch him try.

As O’Rourke himself stated during his 2019 presidential campaign on “The View,” his position of white male privilege has helped him advance in his career, and that’s really all we have so far as a reason he’s Democrats’ best choice for 2022 – not because he’s held a statewide office before or actually wants to appeal to independent voters. And that’s the kind of self-confidence you need as a Democrat in Texas.
