BMW has resurrected an iconic and almost forgotten design at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Alongside – and in contrast to – the forward-looking Concept R18 shown by BMW Motorrad, the Garmisch pays homage to one of the industry’s most influential automotive designers of the 1970s, Marcello Gandini.

Mueller sets a new standard for innocence: Prove you did not commit a crime
Speaking at Justice Department headquarters in Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning, a visibly nervous Robert Mueller told reporters that he found no evidence of collusion with Russia, but then appeared to invent a new, extrajudicial standard for innocence in the United States.
First going through many of the conclusions of his April report on supposed Russian interference in the 2016 election, Mueller then announced that he will be “resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life,” effective today.

AOC to Bartend for a Day to Advocate Policies That Closed Former Employer
New York City’s increased minimum wage drove AOC’s former employer out of business
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, N.Y.) is set to bartend again for a day to advocate for policies that led to one of her former employers shutting down its business.
The freshman congresswoman will return to her district in New York City this Friday to “pour a few pints” and push for the federal Raise the Wage Act while showing support for “abolishing below-minimum wage” for tipped workers in the state, the New York Daily News reports. The exact location of the event, which was organized by the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, a New York-based nonprofit that advocates for increased pay through its ONE FAIR WAGE campaign, will be announced later.
The Royal Air Force (RAF) has begun testing the latest version of the BriteCloud missile decoy on its Typhoon fighter aircraft. At the Typhoon Ministerial Meeting in Germany, British Defence minister Stuart Andrew revealed that the disposable soda-can-sized anti-radar electronics packages began testing in April by the RAF’s 41 Test and Evaluation Squadron based at RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire.

A Reminder That Some Journalists Are Lazy Idiots Who Progressives Spoon Feed
A whole lot of journalists are lazy progressive hipsters who hang out around the same people who think the same things and are, as a result, easily manipulated and played. Also, many of them are so liberal and have so many biases that it makes it even easier for progressives to spoon feed stories to journalists.
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Libertarian Rep. Justin Amash is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a fiscal hawk and has a Conservative Review Liberty Score of 90, which is excellent.
So what does all this conservatism have to do with Amash’s recent call for the impeachment of President Trump? In other words, what does one have to do with the other? Well … absolutely nothing. But some “conservative” websites mean to somehow equate the two.
As a general rule, I don’t like calling out another conservative site, particularly as I often quote them. But the Washington Examiner’s piece entitled, “Get mad at Justin Amash all you want, but he’s still the biggest fiscal conservative,” tries to do just that.
Earth is a famously wet planet, but where all that water came from in the first place remains a mystery. The most commonly-accepted theory is that comets and asteroids delivered it via impacts during the early days of Earth, and now a NASA study has found new evidence to support that idea. Observations of a comet that whizzed by close to Earth a few months ago show that it contains “ocean-like” water – and this may apply to other previously-dismissed comets too.
from The American Spectator:
Declassification and Cognitive Dissonance in the Media
How the media stopped worrying and learned to love the CIA.
When Nancy Pelosi decided to appease the impeachment hawks in her caucus by accusing President Trump of engaging in a cover-up, the media responded with undisguised glee. The New York Times, for example, ran a story that essentially congratulated the House Speaker for publicly goading the man. Trump responded by giving them transparency good and hard. He not only instructed the various intelligence agencies to assist Attorney General William Barr with his inquiry into the inception of the Russia investigation, but gave Barr authority to declassify related intelligence material. Oddly, the media have suddenly lost their enthusiasm for transparency.

We’ve all seen studies and polls showing how younger men and women are dating less and it’s because of the whole #MeToo crap.
Sure a lot of the #MeToo stuff is legit, but a lot isn’t too.
And what has this movement potentially wrought? Well, a new study finds that women are more likely to die if they have a cardiac arrest in public because people fear performing CPR on them could be seen as sexual assault.
And California Senate passes bill to end fake vaccine exemptions: Only state health officials will decide who skips shots if it is signed into law.
This is yet another case, in my opinion, of never letting a good crisis go to waste. And it’s yet another example of the slippery slope of more government intrusion and overstep.
