CNN Devotes Two Segments to Trump’s ‘Executive Privilege’ for Eating Two Scoops of Ice Cream

Thu, 07/06/2017 - 2:18am

CNN devoted not one, but two segments on how President Trump got two scoops of ice cream while his dinner guests only got one as the network tried to pass off a “scoop” about the president’s eating habits as news.

In a segment titled, “Two scoops for Trump,” CNN’s Jeanne Moos talks about Trump’s “executive privilege” for receiving two scoops of ice cream while the three TIME magazine correspondents he had dinner with only got one.

The TIME magazine correspondents made sure to take note of the disparity between the food given to the president and the food they were served in a profile called “Donald Trump After Hours,” the profile the segment was based on.

“At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else,” TIME’s Michael Scherer and Zeke Miller wrote.

“With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests,” they added.

But this was not the only segment CNN devoted to the subject.

CNN also gave airtime to an interview between CNN’s Brooke Baldwin and CNN political reporter and editor-at-large Chris Cillizza with the headline, “President Gets Two Scoops of Ice Cream, Everyone Else One.”

“The President gets two scoops, you know, everyone around the table gets one, and no word if there were sprinkles,” Baldwin commented.

“Right, well, the broader point here is, the White House staff has adapted to Donald Trump’s case,” CNN political reporter and editor-at-large Chris Cillizza responded. “So, when everyone else gets water, he gets a diet coke. When everybody gets one scoop of ice cream, he gets two.”

Fox News host Sean Hannity mocked CNN for its “hard-hitting coverage.”

Thanks for the hard hitting news on your network @jaketapper #Hannity

— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) May 11, 2017

“Thanks for the hard-hitting news on your network,” Hannity wrote on Twitter.

Others, however, thought Trump’s ice cream habits were worth mentioning.

This explains a lot.

— David Frum (@davidfrum) May 11, 2017

“This explains a lot,” the Atlantic’s David Frum wrote on Twitter, to which Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post responded saying that Trump is “a man unable to restrain his urges.”

One Bad Deal Down…One Very Bad Deal to Go

Thu, 07/06/2017 - 1:31am

“Effective immediately, I am canceling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba.” – President Trump’s words this past Friday at the Manuel Artime Theater in Miami’s ‘Little Havana’

Saying that the Cuban people suffered for almost six decades of communist rule, President Donald Trump, to tremendous applause, unraveled and rescinding Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s ‘so-called’ historic accord that opened up trade and travel to Cuba… and he did so by rightfully calling Obama’s deal “terrible,” “one-sided,” and “misguided”… and that is putting it mildly.

And so in a campaign promise kept to the anti-Castro voting bloc that helped him win Florida in the 2016 election, President Trump stated that he will be “a voice against repression” and “a voice for the Cuban people.” Adding that Obama’s easing restrictions on Cuba did not help the Cuban people at all, especially with the Castro regime becoming even more repressive in their trying to crush the island nation’s growing democratic movement, and because it still remains a regime that has failed to take any positive action on human rights, Trump went on to explain that current investments in business and tourism aided both Cuba’s military…as all business relationships and deals go through the Cuban military…and Raul Castro’s dictatorial regime…with any jobs created going to party cronies and loyalists alone.

Translating into any American monies given being our taxpayer dollars wasted.

And in a bold move to hold Castro accountable for still on-going and increasing oppression (in 2016 there were 9,940 short and long term detentions of political protesters, up from 8,899 in 2014) and human rights abuses ignored while Obama was president, President Trump let it be known that sanctions will not be lifted until all political prisoners are freed, until both freedom of assembly and expression is respected, until all political parties are legalized, and until free and internationally supervised elections are held, thus making it clear who is now calling the shots and who is not…and not means one Raul Castro.

See President Trump’s full Miami speech here:

“The career service people, in the State Department and Treasury and in other places, are not in favor of changing this policy,” said Sen. Marco Rubio during his and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart’s May 3rd White House meeting with President Trump…a meeting to try and get President Trump to reverse Obama’s Cuba policy. And they did so even though two groups of pro-Cuba “engagement” House and Senate Republicans each sent letters to President Trump and to key members of his administration… letters asking for Cuba to remain “open” citing the “entrepreneurial and national security benefits” as the reason for continuing Obama’s Cuba policy.

Thankfully their letters failed.

See Sen. Marco Rubio’s Miami speech here:

“We will enforce the ban on tourism. We will enforce the embargo. We will take concrete steps to ensure that investments flow directly to the people so they can open private businesses and begin to build their country’s great, great future, a country of great potential,” Trump said as he challenged the Cuban government to “come to the table” to work towards an agreement that is in the best interest of the Cuban, the American, and the Cuban-American people. And Trump said that best interest included Cuba’s returning to face American justice both cop killer Joanne Chesimard and what he calls the Cuban military “criminals” who shot down and killed four members of Brothers to the Rescue.

Also, travel policies will be adjusted to make it harder for individual ‘people-to-people’ travel…tough luck Beyonce and Jay-Z…but family travel will continue to be authorized as will U.S. based money transfers that Cuban-Americans send to their families on the island. And while we will retain formal diplomatic relations with Cuba via the newly re-opened U.S. Embassy in Havana, the ‘wet foot, dry foot’ policy will not be reinstated out of safety concerns for those trying to make such a dangerous sea voyage.

And while no changes will go into effect until both the Treasury and Commerce Departments issue new regulations that conform with Trump’s new policy, the Cuban government’s response to Trump’s change in policy came swiftly and it came via a statement in the state-run newspaper Granma, “Again, the United States Government resorted to coercive methods of the past… the Cuban Government denounces the new measures to tighten the blockade, which are destined to fail as has been shown repeatedly in the past, and which will not achieve its purpose to weaken the revolution or to defeat the Cuban people, whose resistance to the aggressions of any type and origin has been proven over almost six decades.”

But really…who cares what Raul Castro’s propaganda rag has to say.

So now that Obama’s bad Cuba deal has been rightly relegated to the trash heap where it belongs, Trump has one more bad deal of Obama’s to get rid of…the multilateral agreement yet “catastrophically” bad Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)…more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal…probably the worst deal ever made by a U.S. president.

And this was a deal Obama touted as a crucial move towards what he called “detente with Iran” and towards regional peace, and was a deal that was supposed to restrict the nuclear ambitions of the rogue nation in exchange for lifting financial and oil sanctions imposed not just by the United States, but also by the European Union, and the United Nations.

But the reality remains that this was a deal that did not address Iran’s foreign policy.violations, and was a deal made through blackmail of sorts what with Obama’s ‘warning’ Congress that blocking the deal could spark not only start a Middle East war, but that U.S. credibility worldwide would be seriously damaged if Congress refused to abide by the deal’s terms reached…a deal with a country that went from having 164 centrifuges in 2003 to 19,000 at the start of talks in 2013, despite broad and expansive U.N. sanctions.

And it did not matter to Obama that it was a very bad deal made with a country who has repeatedly in the past and who continues today to spew its intent to wipe Israel off the map while it touts as noble both violence against both American troops and the world’s innocent civilians alike…for Iran is indeed the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism and plays a major role in regional military conflicts.

A deal I call ‘aiding and abetting’ the enemy…a deal of treason and nothing less…for Obama’s very bad deal does little to block Iranian’s path to securing nuclear weapons as this deal actually gives Iran a ‘pathway’ to nuclear weapons capability.

Remember, under this still in effect deal of Obama’s, Iran is allowed to enrich uranium using the thousands of centrifuges it already has in operation, is allowed to conduct nuclear research and development, and is in charge of monitoring their own adherence to the nuclear restrictions. And dare we forget that in only ten years…in what is referred to as Iran’s ‘breakout time’…their rush to secure a nuclear weapon drops to almost zero for as per the deal they will be allowed to begin building hundreds of advanced new centrifuges annually, while at the same time being allowed to expand its long-range ballistic missile program…the very program that would afford Iran its needed delivery system not to reach Israel but to reach who they call the ‘Great Satan’…as in these United States of America.

So it is no wonder why this Iran deal of Obama’s must join the Cuban deal in the trash heap and must do so post-haste for it is a deal that not only assures Iran of eventually securing nuclear weapons, but it is a deal that also funnels tens of billions of dollars to terrorists hell-bent on destabilizing the entirety of the Middle East making full-blown war a possibility…allowing the so-wanted Levant to come to fruition.

And yet President Trump…who must review and sign the sanctions relief waiver every 120 days based upon Iran’s complying with their end of the deal…just one month ago passed up his first chance to withdraw us from this very bad deal. And while Trump knows that it would be legally possible for him to nullify said deal, he also knows that his doing so could possibly isolate us from the international community. And besides, we already have unilateral sanctions placed against Iran that go back decades that the nuclear deal has no bearing on…sanctions recently extended by Congress.

So the question remains, is President Trump trying to renegotiate a better deal with Iran possibly his true goal? Probably not as it would be much easier for him to totally kill the existing deal because said deal still in effect did require demanding negotiations between many parties, with those parties now highly unlikely to want to renegotiate again. And while the deal did reign in Iran’s uranium enrichment capabilities to some degree in return for the previously stated lifting of economic sanctions, it was our European allies, not us who economically benefited the most from the deal with oil-rich Iran. And these folks would not want to jeopardize those benefits no matter the fact that any Western company that invests in Iran actually becomes complicit with a terrorist regime.

But how and with what justification could President Trump legally pull us out of Obama’s very bad nuclear deal…and is he just waiting for the right time to send it to the proverbial trash heap where it belongs? I truly believe he is.

And why do I believe so…because a deal is only valid as long as all parties uphold it. And with Iran’s continuing and active role as the leading state sponsor of terrorism has shown them to have already broken their end of the deal…a deal that forbade their giving released sanctions monies to terrorist groups.

And that is exactly what Iran has done in their giving money to known terrorist groups in Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Lebanon, including their giving monies to militias fighting the U.S. backed anti-government rebels in Syria…as in Obama’s buddies the ‘anything-but’ Syrians rebels who are tentacles of ISIS and al-Qaeda….and their giving monies to U.S. designated terrorist group Hezbollah.

And also let’s not forget the U.N. resolution passed immediately upon the nuclear deal going into effect that called for Iran not to undertake any activity whatsoever related to ballistic missiles…ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons…well, that too Iran has broken.

Translation: whether alone or together both these instances are deal breakers of the first degree…deal breakers that give President Trump the much-needed leverage, ammunition, and just cause to pull us out of a deal that should never been ratified by Congress in the first place…and he could do so by using our veto power as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council to kill any continued sanctions relief.

So as President Trump continues his review of Obama’s very bad nuclear deal, coupled with the fact that the U.S. remains the primary influence over the international financial system, makes both U.S. and international banks more than a bit leery about resuming full ties with Iran. And with our continued unilateral sanctions against Iran still in place allows us to continue to question Iran’s intent to comply with the agreement they so desperately wanted. And that basically assures us that in time President Trump will pull us out of the deal that should never have been.

And that together with Obama’s Cuba deal now being relegated to the trash heap truly is yet another step forward in helping to ‘Make America Great Again.’

Tweet On, Mr President

Wed, 07/05/2017 - 4:11pm

President Trump is criticized from all sides for sparing with fake news media via tweets. Some say Trump’s tweets are a distraction from getting out his message. The truth is fake news media are relentlessly 24/7 distorting and misrepresenting Trump’s agenda and message. Tweeting is Trump’s direct line to the American people which is the reason his tweets infuriate and frustrate fake news media.

Some say Trump responding to attacks and lies from media hacks is unworthy of his time and below his office. I disagree. How many times must we witness the accumulative toxic effect of allowing absurd lies on Republicans to go unchallenged? Such lies take root and grow. Leftists know if they attack a Republican with a big enough lie long enough, people will come to believe it. Leftists’ unchallenged huge lie, “Bush lied and people died” eventually tanked Bush’s approval numbers.

When Mitt Romney ran for president, I laughed at fake news media’s lies launched to destroy him. Fake news media said Romney caused the death of an employee’s wife; Romney abused his dog by hauling it on the roof of his car and Romney bullied a fellow student in school. I thought these attacks were too absurd to be believed or too trivial to care about. Little did I realize these seemingly unworthy-of-a-response attacks on Romney were building a false image of this genuinely decent and kind human being in the minds of low-info voters.

I chuckled hearing Michael Jackson say in his classic “Thriller” music video, “I’m not like other guys.” When will Washington DC and fake news media realize Trump is not like other Republicans? It is not in Trump’s DNA to sit back and allow himself to be attacked and lied about without pushing back harder. Frankly, I love that about our new sheriff in town.

Trump confronting fake news media’s lies in tweets is driving Leftists crazy because they do not know how to deal with it. Leftists are accustom to Republicans cowering in fear, rolling over and taking fake news media assassinating their character.

Fake news media has a proven track record of 24/7 negative nitpicking a Republican to death. This is why fake news media made a huge deal about Trump supposedly getting two scoops of ice cream while everyone else only gets one.What appeared to be much ado about nothing was really a strategically planned attempt to further fake news media’s branding of Trump; an egomaniac mean bully.

Still, there are folks on our side who want Trump to stop tweeting and play by traditional Washington DC establishment and fake news media rules for Republicans. Why should Trump allow his unhinged morally bankrupt enemies to dictate the rules of engagement. Tweeting is a technological powerful weapon available to President Trump. I say tweet on Mr. President. Tweet on.

Political experts advising Republicans to walk-on-eggshells when dealing with the first black president, Democrats, and fake news media have brought us patriotic Americans nothing but frustration and the furtherance of the extreme radical left’s agenda.

I will not bore you with the long list of Obama’s unconstitutional overreaches to which the GOP response was, “That’s not legal, but we dare not oppose him.” Real regime change in DC was birthed out of the Tea Party pushing Republicans to behave outside of expert’s advised timidity. This resulted in the GOP winning the House, Senate, and White House.

Hypocritically, fake news media lectured Republicans about how to behave while supporting Democrats doing whatever necessary, including breaking laws, to implement their extreme liberal agenda. For example. Fake news media supports Democrats’ proven bogus narrative that allowing illegals to invade our homeland makes Americans safer. The fact that sanctuary cities are arrogantly breaking the law is of no concern to fake news media.

On a recent retreat, MSNBC was one of the few news channels I could get on TV. Folks, watching the total propaganda network was astounding. MSNBC lies, distorts and spins against Trump practically 24/7; clearly, laser focused and obsessed with taking down our president.

Not only is Trump not like other Republicans, he is not like other presidents. I am confident that I speak for millions of Americans when I say that is just fine with us as long as he constitutionally fulfills his campaign promises.

Master Chief

Wed, 07/05/2017 - 9:17am

Master Chief Wilbur Witt III retired last week in San Diego. When he joined the Navy back in ’93 we had no idea he would take it that far, but we should have. At two years old he would put his fireman’s hat on and race around our living room going to “work” every morning. In high school he played in the marching band his shoes were shined and buttons gleamed. Then he joined the Navy.

Master Chief’s career was a mirror image of the schizophrenia that has overtaken America in the last twenty years. One day he was throwing the enemies of our nation into the Persian Gulf, and the next he was fishing them out. Still, as I mingled with his shipmates I came to realize that the “old Navy” is still there. They’re smart enough to keep their heads down, but as they walk down that red carpet with the ship’s bell ringing them into the twilight of their lives they’re leaving and inspired core that knows how to take care of the Uns, the Putins and ISIS, and understand that there’s just no nice way to kill people, but there are those the world would be better without.

Our armed services are not dead, but have been restrained. Elements in our society such as ANTIFA, and Black Lives Matter work hard to disrupt America and the Men and Women standing the watch do so to protect their right to do so in some sort of perverted divine comedy. This is the way America works. All voices need to be heard, not shouted down, to develop a consensus of direction for the people, not just the loudest mob in the street.

Today Master Chief is resting in Northern California with family comfortable in knowing that his phone will not ring ending his vacation to race back to the ship, but knowing that as he was relieved another stepped up to keep the watch and slay the dogs of war who would silence the voice of liberty. Fair winds and following seas are earned, not given.

Anarchy, A New Beginning For America The future always has a way of asking questions about the past. A future that does not know its past is like a bastard child; it wants to know who its father was.


Later, when they start asking the tough questions about what happened to America, they won’t be about what happened, but why. Looking back at my wonder years, I am astonished at the lawless place America has become. With our population skyrocketing, filling our cities to capacity, and turning our small to mid-sized towns into cities or metro areas, we have fewer protections from evil doers, both crime entrepreneurs, and corporate felons than we did 30 years ago. In the case of the former, there are an inadequate number of police, and even fewer who possess any real competence, so the cops lock up the stupid criminals of which there is no shortage, leaving us at the mercy of the smarter thugs, of which there is a similar number. In the case of the latter, long drawn out court procedures result in those few corporate offenders unfortunate enough to have been caught with a smoking gun in hand and registered to them to pay fines minuscule compared to the profits gained from their crimes, and an agreement that they may admit to no wrongdoing. Looking backward at our past as a nation, we know what happened.


It’s not so hard to understand that a fledgling nation with vast natural resources, and a relatively small population would become a leader in world markets, and a magnet to overseas labor and investment. The what and the why match perfectly. No real detailed history of that period is needed, because logic holds the whole premise together as seamlessly as a roman arch supports itself. Later in our history it was necessary for Presidents, then our undisputed leaders, to curb the power of those few ultra wealthy men who had become known as the robber barons. Teddy Roosevelt was arguably the first to truly challenge the threat of vertical integration by getting laws passed forbidding monopolies, as well as a raft of laws making it difficult for big money to grow so large that it threatened our democracy. During the tenure of FDR, a distant cousin of Teddy’s, it became necessary that president Roosevelt pass a series of laws prohibiting banks and investment houses from colluding to make a few people fabulously wealthy at the expense of impoverishing the rest of America. Income tax rose on the wealthy during this era as well, putting a healthy curb on the nascent fascism growing in the heart of the world’s greatest democracy. Despite an attempt at a treasonous coup, Henry Ford, Prescott Bush and some other notable billionaires were stymied by Snively Butler, and America continued to thrive. Again, form beckons to function, and this piece of history needs little explanation. Following these events, a period of discord fell upon us. Still our undisputed leader President Truman ordered the atomic destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Why he did this is at odds with logic. Yes, it’s true that the lives of American soldiers were saved by the bombing, but they accomplished nothing even close to the destruction wrought but Curtis LeMay and his technique of firebombing. So here, at this point some tough questions emerge. The “why” questions.


Form and function seem to parallel rather than merge. Later, during the Eisenhower administration, a shadowy but robustly powerful man by the name of Robert Moses emerged. Powered by big oil, and the big three auto makers, he blazed an unlikely trail across the landscape of the American future dictating that the automobile was to be the dominant, if not only form of transportation used by Americans. With no mandate, no referendum, indeed in secrecy, he insured that America would build a wildly expensive infrastructure of highways, city streets, and automobile pathways that would not just compete with, but virtually eliminate trains, subways, and buses. As far as self locomotion such as cycling or walking were concerned, citizens were, and still are invited to travel at their own risk. Now the connection between form and logic become fuzzy. These measures enriched the lives and furthered the agendas of ordinary citizens how? As we were to see, these were tough questions, and there was little appetite to unearth the why of these actions. After a brief squabble over who might be elected and allowed to live out their presidencies it became clear that our presidents were no longer our supreme leaders. Now shadowy figures prowled the corridors of power. King makers, and would be dictators. For a brief shining moment America united its leadership of religion and government under the single figure of President Carter. Vilified to this day by ignorant fools who do so because they read it on a bathroom wall somewhere, President Carter managed to integrate our future and our past, and came within an ace of solving the conflict in the Middle East. Walking the walk, instead of talking the talk, our great Christian leader was nonetheless deposed by a likable candidate whose entire administration was carried out by active CIA operatives, and Wall Street magnates. Logic broke down as far as the American vision was concerned, unless you were among those who profited by these maneuvers. But for every day workers, folks trying to get ahead, not just survive, it was poison. But we do have answers to the tough questions of why from this era. Maines electric and their financing partners, the activities of the economic hit men, and their CIA funded jackals make it clear that vested money, and vulture capitalism were in the ascendant. Fast forward to 30 years ago. The libertarian party declared war against taxes, government regulations, government oversight, any and all government agencies, and assistance to the poor. Their platform even called for the abolishment of the military. For once, form was nowhere near function. At theosbranch we inform our bastard present as to who is our father. We name names, and explain why. Visit us soon. – Theo Clevenger

Arrested for Committing Hate Speech Against Himself

Mon, 07/03/2017 - 1:03am


This past Saturday an American Patriot…my friend Bill Finlay…aka Wild Bill for America…was arrested in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for ‘supposed’ hate speech on his iPad. Bill was an invited guest asked to speak at the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam.

It all started with this comment and the poster he put on his Facebook page: “Heading out to Calgary, Alberta, Canada to speak at the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam! Have info that the govt is busing in agitators to make things difficult for us. So please put me and the others on your prayer lists as we take a stand against the most dangerous false religion on earth……and the flaming liberals who love it.

When I heard from Bill a few hours after his arrest at the Calgary airport this is what he told me, Canada just decided to kick me out so I’m on my way home but it’s not over yet. In addition to the unlawful detention, they seized my laptop to send to Ottawa for a ‘forensic investigation,’ they are determined to get me on something. Plus they are bringing in their tax authority to determine the tariff to slap on the smuggled contraband (my personal notes to myself on Islam’s abuse of women and children). And my speech was about the importance of open and honest discussion without fear of the government dragging us away.” 

And then in typical Wild Bill humorous fashion Bill said to me that “the notes written to myself that no one could see means I must have committed a hate crime against myself!” All I could say at that point was that Canada has some serious issues…guess Prime Minister Trudeau is an Angela Merkel clone.

Here now is the very speech Wild Bill was to give in Canada…a speech he gave a few weeks ago in Jacksonville, FL. The cops after confiscating his iPad having read the script immediately arrested him for hate speech. Watch the video and you decide if this is hate speech…I sure do NOT think it is…I think it is truth…a truth that must be told:.

Seriously folks…what happened to Bill in Canada can (and sadly most likely will) happen here in our own country if we do NOT put an end to this political correctness nonsense concerning a certain group of people…as in muslims…and their liberal Democrat kumbaya protectors…all of whom do not like us very much.Thankfully, Bill is now safely home in Florida and is OK…mad but OK…and last night “foreign national” Bill put up this video on his Facebook page where in his own words he tells his story of Canadian border police out of control:

I spoke to Bill by phone last night and he will be on Craig and my RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS radio show on American Political Radio this Friday, June 30th from 7 to 9pm EST to tell his story and hopefully wake some people up to the dangers ‘We the People’ face regarding our First Amendment rights and freedoms.

Hope you can tune in at: because this is one show you do not want to miss. Remember, what happened to Bill in Canada can happen to any one of us…as political correctness and the stifling of free speech, if not stopped, will indeed be the death of us all.

After White House Reporter Screamed at Sarah Huckabee, WATCH All Hell Break Loose

Thu, 06/29/2017 - 6:15am

During Tuesday’s White House press briefing, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed Project Veritas’ undercover video showing a CNN producer claiming that they use excessive Russia coverage to boost their ratings.

Sanders suggested that the video, released late Monday evening, mighty only be the tip of CNN’s “fake news” iceberg.

She specifically criticized CNN CEO Jeff Zucker for advising his employees to ramp up Russia coverage because it helps their ratings, despite feelings held by many employees that the narrative was “mostly bulls**t.

“There’s a video circulating now, whether it’s accurate or not I don’t know, but I would encourage everyone in this room, and, frankly, everyone across the country, to take a look at it,” she said. “I think if it is accurate it’s a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism.”[SIC]

If the media can’t be trusted to report the news then that’s a dangerous place for America,” Sanders concluded.

Siri Plans to Stop Taking Orders and Start Giving Them

Wed, 06/28/2017 - 2:33pm

Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced the company is going to focus on developing self–driving car “systems” instead of the car itself. In an interview with Bloomberg Television he explained this qualifies as an “MOA” effort as in “The Mother Of All AI projects.”

The decision to concentrate on software, rather than both hardware and software is a new one for Apple. Normally the company designs the hardware along with the operating software and then ships the entire package off to China for manufacturing and intellectual property theft.

When the finished product returns to the US, Apple does its best to control the sales of all related products.

I’ve been with Apple longer than I’ve been with my wife. This is a fitting comparison since buying Apple is the hardware equivalent of matrimony. And even more fitting personally, since I’ve had excellent luck with refurbs, regardless of whether it’s Apple computers or wives.

Apple, like my wife, is a closed system that takes a dim view of playing the field. Cupertino prefers customers make all software purchases through the App Store. The same goes for hardware and the Apple Store.

Android, on the other hand, is a wild and wooly open system with many hardware manufacturers, many software producers and little if any standardization. Apple’s closed system is designed with control in mind.

Think of Hillary Clinton running a Best Buy.

Under Apple there is much more look–and–feel uniformity across the product spectrum, which comes with a price. Usually higher.

So, I would have had mixed feelings about owning an iCar.

I wouldn’t have liked being limited to buying gas at Apple stations. Sure the free operating software updates are nice, but that’s balanced with the thought of being lectured on the size of my carbon footprint by an Apple “Genius.”

Cook, at the time, hadn’t ruled out electric vehicles. He rhapsodized, “It’s a marvelous experience not to stop at the filling station or the gas station.” This only proves the chauffer maintains the car without Cook’s help.

Gassing up takes about five minutes. Charging up takes hours. Electricity may start cheap, but at the rate Apple changes the design of its propriety connectors, the cost of new adapters to plug into the power outlet will no doubt balance out the iFuel cost.

I think for the foreseeable future I’ll keep my manual car. If I want to drive with a woman that argues about routes and how fast I drive, I’ll just invite the wife.

CORRECTION: I was wrong last week. That column concerned NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s decree allowing NFL players scoring touchdowns to make fools of themselves — while the blockers that made it possible are ignored.

That may have been attractive for ballerina ball fans accustomed to method acting from their players, but football should be a serious game.

If I wanted to watch bad dancing and mini–charades I’d attend a GOP townhall meeting when Obamacare repeal was on the agenda. When I watch the NFL, I’m hoping professional football players will act professional.

You may recall my temporary burst of optimism when Cameron DaSilva of Fox Sports reminded us next season the NFL will also institute a snap clock. It starts when an official signals touchdown and teams will have 40 seconds to get set and begin the conversion.

DaSilva reported there were 32 touchdowns that weren’t followed by a booth review, penalty or injury. Even without the Original Tap–Dancing Kid performing his routine, teams were taking an average of 45 seconds to snap the ball. Adding choreography would only make the situation worse.

My optimism crashed when I mistakenly calculated those 32 TDs were thinly spread over the 119 games in the season’s last seven weeks and playoffs. At that rate only one quarter of a TD per game would be influenced by the snap clock.

But I was wrong!

It wasn’t the last seven weeks, plus the playoff games. His survey was only for the seven playoff games.

I should have known something was off. Reviewing 119 games, even with fast–forward or NFL Red Zone is a significant investment in a research project for a reporter facing multiple deadlines. That kind of time commitment spent watching streaming video is more characteristic of the government; say the US Patent and Trademark Office.

While only seven games cuts the sample size and increases the margin of error, the results will do in a pinch. (If you know someone in the USPTO who is not under investigation by the Inspector General, maybe you could ask them to examine the other 112 games.) For me, 4.5 touchdowns per game, unsullied by freestyle ego–mania, is much better than what I feared.

FBI agent indicted in Oregon refuge standoff shooting

Accused of lying about firing at Robert “LaVoy” Finicum in 2016

PORTLAND, Ore.— An FBI agent has been indicted on accusations that he lied about firing at a rancher in 2016 when officers arrested leaders of an armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in rural Oregon.

Sources familiar with the case say the agent will face allegations of making a false statement with intent to obstruct justice, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Tuesday.

The indictment stems from more than a yearlong investigation by the U.S. Justice Department inspector general. The agent will be identified when summoned to appear Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland.

Authorities moved in on Ammon Bundy and other leaders as they were driving in two vehicles from the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to a meeting on Jan. 26, 2016.

The Deschutes County sheriff said that as Robert “LaVoy” Finicum left his truck, an FBI agent shot twice at Finicum, though none of the hostage team members said they discharged their firearms. The county sheriff’s office was tasked with investigating the Finicum shooting.

The FBI agent’s bullets didn’t hit Finicum, 54, an Arizona rancher who was the spokesman for the takeover near Burns in Harney County.
