  • Tesla, Missouri Auto Dealers begin late battle over state franchise law

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri lawmakers are set to begin a last-minute fight over whether electric car manufacturers like Testa Motors should be able to sell their product directly to consumers. With only a week left in session, the Missouri Senate quietly attached language to House Bill 1124 that would effectively bar Tesla from selling directly to consumers in Missouri. Similar hurdles for the company have popped up in other states. Supporters of the legislation believe the current franchise-based model for selling automobiles has served the state’s economy and its consumers well, and that they don’t understand why Tesla will...
  • North Korea Appears to Ape NASA with Space Agency Logo

    North Korea appears to ape Nasa with space agency logo Design looks remarkably similar to that of US space agency, right down to the blue globe, lettering and swooshed ring The choice of a globe as the emblem for North Korea's space agency expresses the country's ideal of peaceful exploration, explains the Korean Central News Agency. The blue rings, it adds, represent satellites, and the constellation of stars shows the desire to "glorify Kim Il-sung's and Kim Jong-il's Korea as a space power". However, the state news agency neglects to mention one glaring thing: the new logo looks a lot...

    Racial Politics: Like mortgage lenders, the auto industry is inoculating itself against trumped-up racism charges by adjusting the way it prices loans. Eric Holder's witch hunt is spreading — and doing lasting damage. On Friday, the National Automobile Dealers Association issued new "fair credit" guidelines to protect the 16,000 car dealers it represents from discrimination lawsuits filed by the Justice Department and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The agencies have teamed up to frame car lenders as bigots after successfully framing home lenders. "Fulfilling these goals is particularly important in light of recent allegations," NADA said in a memo to members....

    Automotive News is reporting a serious backlash from car dealers regarding the North American Dealers Association's choice of keynote speaker for the annual industry confab in January: former first lady and secretary of state, Hillary Clinton. AN spoke to one dealer that not only cancelled his trip to the NADA conference, but revoked his dealership's membership outright over the association with Clinton. In defense of its choice, NADA Chairman David Westcott argued that the dealer advocate wanted "somebody well-known, with a name – a draw." Still, NADA members aren't pleased with the choice, with dealers delivering a barrage of angry...

    On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib -- which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood's American...

    A 1991 strategy paper for the Brotherhood, often referred to as the Ikhwan in Arabic, found in the Virginia home of an unindicted co-conspirator in the case, describes the group's U.S. goals, referred to as a "civilization-jihadist process." "The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions," it states. This process requires a "mastery of the...

Luckily, no one was aboard the ISS at the time, but the ensuing trail of debris from the crash has caused irreparable damage to communication and military satellites orbiting the Earth. Miraculously, Google saw the warnings from several Al-Qaeda websites two days before the crash and was...

"One, he wanted me to help reinspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim...

    In a speech to political allies gathered at Cape Canaveral last week, President Obama laid out his vision for America's space program. Under the Obama plan, NASA will spend $100 billion on human spaceflight over the next 10 years in order to accomplish nothing. Of course, that's not how Mr. Obama phrased it. But beneath the President's flowery rhetoric, that's how things add up. Here's the background. In 2004, the Bush administration launched a program called Constellation to develop a set of flight systems, including the Orion crew capsule and the Ares 1 and Ares 5 medium and heavy lift...

    White House sought closing of franchises now offered openings: Washington -- An auto dealers group criticized President Barack Obama Friday for applauding General Motors Co.'s decision to allow hundreds of dealerships targeted to close to remain open. Bailey Wood, a spokesman for the National Automobile Dealers Association, said Obama's auto task force last year "required the closure of nearly 2,500 dealerships at a cost of 100,000 jobs," as a condition of bailing out GM and Chrysler Group LLC. "Now he is touting the fact that jobs were created after dealer arbitration legislation, which his administration opposed, forced GM/Chrysler to reevaluate...

    A few weeks after killing the U.S.A.'s world-famous moon-mission program, Obama has ordered the space agency to focus on reaching out to Muslim countries. When Obama announced earlier this month that he would slash NASA's $100 billion plan to return astronauts to the moon, he didn't mention where some of the resources would be redirected. NASA's new secret outreach mission was conveniently omitted though the head of the agency finally revealed it this week. NASA administrator Charlie Bolden disclosed that Obama wants him to "find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries" as part of the administration's efforts to...

"It is a lot more severe for minority dealers," Jones said. "Traditionally, they have smaller stores in smaller communities."

An affidavit made public in federal court in Virginia contends that the Muslim charities gave $3.7 million to BMI Inc., a private Islamic investment company in New Jersey that may have passed the money to terrorist groups. The money was part of a $10 million endowment from unnamed donors in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, according to the affidavit filed by David Kane...

    Did Saddam Hussein use any of his ill-gotten billions filched from the United Nations oil-for-food program to help fund Al Qaeda? Investigations have shown that the former Iraqi dictator grafted and smuggled more than $10 billion from the program that for seven years prior to Saddam’s overthrow was meant to bring humanitarian aid to ordinary Iraqis. And the Sept. 11 Commission has shown a tracery of contacts between Saddam and Al Qaeda that continued after billions of oil-for-food dollars began pouring into Saddam’s coffers and Usama bin Laden declared his famous war on the U.S. Now, buried in some of...
