From Thursday: News and Guts

This morning (Thursday) the President stooped lower than perhaps any President in history. He attacked two reputable TV hosts, calling them names we wouldn't expect to hear from elementary school children. And he, again, attacked a woman over her looks.
Over two tweets Donald Trump said:
"I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"

We aren't attorneys, but we are interested to see reaction from Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Should they brush it off as "locker room talk", take a stand or seek legal action?
The Twittersphere is already erupting. Megan McMain sums it up well in this Tweet, "I do not think making fun of a woman's looks is acceptable. I get it every day of my life. I think that tweet is cruel - and unpresidential."

Health care bill shelved: News and Guts

Good morning. This is the smartest piece you'll read on the GOP healthcare punt. The New York Times paints the President as marginalized and ineffective. Politicians in Washington are growing weary of the act and becoming unafraid to challenge Donald Trump. For example, after a meeting with POTUS one senator told the Times, "the president did not have a grasp of some basic elements of the Senate plan".
"Yet over the past few weeks, the Senate Republican leadership has made it known that it would much rather negotiate with Mr. Pence than a president whose candidacy many did not even take seriously during the 2016 primaries. And some of the White House’s efforts have clearly been counterproductive.
Over the weekend, Mr. McConnell made clear his unhappiness to the White House after a “super PAC” aligned with Mr. Trump started an ad campaign against Senator Dean Heller, Republican of Nevada, after he said last week that he opposed the health care bill.
The majority leader — already rankled by Mr. Trump’s tweets goading him to change Senate rules to scuttle Democratic filibusters — called the White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, to complain that the attacks were “beyond stupid,” according to two Republicans with knowledge of the tense exchange."

Trump: Provoking the Russian bear

Seymour M. Hersh exposed the My Lai Massacre in Vietnam 1968. He uncovered the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and many other stories about war and politics.
"President Donald Trump ignored important intelligence reports when he decided to attack Syria after he saw pictures of dying children. Seymour M. Hersh investigated the case of the alleged Sarin gas attack."
Seymour Hersh | SYRIA: Trump‘s Red LINE.


“He’s a risk-taker. He can accept the consequences of a bad decision in the business world; he will just lose money. But in our world, lives will be lost and there will be long-term damage to our national security if he guesses wrong. He was told we did not have evidence of Syrian involvement and yet Trump says: ‘Do it.'”

President Donald Trump ignored important intelligence reports when he decided to attack Syria after he saw pictures of dying children. Seymour M. Hersh investigated the case of the alleged Sarin gas attack.

On April 6, United States President Donald Trump authorized an early morning Tomahawk missile strike on Shayrat Air Base in central Syria in retaliation for what he said was a deadly nerve agent attack carried out by the Syrian government two days earlier in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun. Trump issued the order despite having been warned by the U.S. intelligence community that it had found no evidence that the Syrians had used a chemical weapon.

The available intelligence made clear that the Syrians had targeted a jihadist meeting site on April 4 using a Russian-supplied guided bomb equipped with conventional explosives. Details of the attack,  including information on its so-called high-value targets, had been provided by the Russians days in advance to American and allied military officials in Doha, whose mission is to coordinate all U.S., allied, Syrian and Russian Air Force operations in the region.

Some American military and intelligence officials were especially distressed by the president’s determination to ignore the evidence. “None of this makes any sense,” one officer told colleagues upon learning of the decision to bomb. “We KNOW that there was no chemical attack … the Russians are furious. Claiming we have the real intel and know the truth … I guess it didn’t matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.“

The phoney President

A Time Magazine with Trump on the cover hangs in his golf clubs. It’s fake.

This article has been updated.
The framed copy of Time Magazine was hung up in at least five of President Trump’s clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”
This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality-TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time.
But that wasn’t true.
The Time cover is a fake.
There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine. And there was no issue at all in 2009 that had Trump on the cover.

I Just Realized Something:

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. 
He has his food prepared for him.  His meals are provided at no cost to him. 
He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup and again during the year, if any medical needs arise.  For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.
He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep.  If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. 
He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.  He receives these accommodations absolutely free. 
He is living like a king and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.  All of his costs are picked up by others who earn a living. 
I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a ton of bricks ~ 

Thanks Kerry

Wednesday's Ride - Volvo Hot Rod at SEMA 2006

America is terminally ill. The GOP are the cancer and the republican voter are the enablers..... SAD

The Most Dangerous Bill You’ve Never Heard Of Just Passed The House

Last, week, under the cover of a media bliss-out except among Koch funded right-wing channels, the House of Representatives passed a bill which would effectively repeal future standard setting under every important environmental, public health, consumer protection, labor standards, occupational safety and civil rights law on the books.
The bill, called the REINS Act, requires that any future major regulation adopted by an Executive Agency — say a new toxic chemical standard required by the recently enacted Chemical Safety Act, or a new consumer protection rule about some innovative but untested kind of food additive — must be approved by a specific resolution in each House of Congress within 70 days to take effect.
To give a sense of the scale of this road-block, in 2015 there were 43 such major federalregulations passed to protect the public; among them were food safety regulations, the Clean Power Plan regulating pollution from electrical generating facilities, net neutrality rules protecting the internet from monopoly, restrictions on predatory lending and energy efficiency standards for appliances.
If the REINS Act had been in effect, it’s unlikely that the Tea Party-dominated Republican caucus in the House would have approved of any of these rules. Future standard setting under the entire body of legislation enacted over the past 40 years to protect the public, from the Clean Air Act to the Dodd Frank financial sector reforms, would be frozen. Over time, as new health, safety, consumer and labor protection issues arise, all of these laws will effectively have been repealed, with no public debate and no accountability. It will also be impossible to restore them as long as the REINS Act is in effect, because by requiring Congress to approve every regulation, it makes it impossible to pass technically complex and scientifically valid rules on any topic of controversy.


An American goes into a bar in Calgary where there is a robot bartender.  The robot says, “What will you have?

The guy replies, “Whiskey.”

The robot brings back his drink and asks, “What’s your IQ?”

The guy say, “168.”

The robot continues to talk about physics, space exploration, and medical technology.

After the guy leaves and the more he thinks about it, the more curious he gets, so he decides to go back.

The robot asks, “What’s your drink?”

The guy answers, “Whiskey.”

The robot returns with his drink and asks, “What’s your IQ?”

The man replies, “100.”

The robot talks about Nascar, Budweiser, the Lions, and LSU.

The man finishes his drink, leaves, but is so interested in his “experiment” that he decides to try again.

He enters the bar and, as usual, the robot asks him what he want to drink.

The man replies, “Whiskey.”

The robot brings the drink and asks, “What’s your IQ?”

The man answers, “50.”

The robot leans in real close and asks,

“So . . . are . . . you people . . . still happy . . . with Trump?”

It has been a while since we featured a design by Oberdan Bezzi, but this BSA model caught our eye. You may be aware that the Indian conglomerate Mahindra purchased rights to the great British brand BSA recently, and speculation about the re-emergence of new BSA models has commenced as a result.
Among other conjectures on his web site, Bezzi offers this “BSA Victor 355”, which takes design cues from classic BSA singles. In part, Bezzi has the following to say about Mahindra’s venture and this concept (excuse his English as a second laguage):
“Of course we hope for a true ‘renaissance’, perhaps beginning with models that are not particularly demanding technically, but built with all the trappings in order to re-enter the market with due seriousness and quality that the brand deserves! 
We hypothesized for one of the first new BSA, a scrambler classical style, with a single-cylinder four-valve of about 350cc., From traditional cycling and well-equipped departments in the brakes and suspension!
A well-structured motion of European dimensions, excellent overall performance, quality components and careful construction! 
But the trump card will obviously quell’allure motorcycle English that the aesthetic part will have to definitely emerge, with ‘educated’ quotes from legendary models such as the famous VICTOR, and the ‘philosophy’ of achievement between the pragmatic and the refined of which were the fairs Made achievements in GB! 
It would be a motorcycle certainly not cheap, indeed quite the opposite, but since the coat of arms and the look would certainly have many admirers among motorcycle enthusiasts …. with a certain … style!”
If you remember the brand as we do, you can’t help but be anxious to see its renewal.
Thanks Kerry

Tuesday's Ride - Citroen DS 2.3 Pallas -

Long suspected

"One of Bayrock's principals was a career criminal named Felix Sater who had ties to Russian and American organized crime groups. Before linking up with the company and with Trump, he had worked as a mob informant for the U.S. government, fled to Moscow to avoid criminal charges while boasting of his KGB and Kremlin contacts there, and had gone to prison for slashing apart another man’s face with a broken cocktail.

In a series of interviews and a lawsuit, a former Bayrock insider, Jody Kriss, claims that he eventually departed from the firm because he became convinced that Bayrock was actually a front for money laundering."

Trump, Russia and a Shadowy Business Partnership

An insider describes the Bayrock Group, its links to the Trump family and its mysterious access to funds. It isn't pretty.
