The Pope Is Selling His Harley.
Yep, He’s Got a Harley

ABC News, by Russell Goldman

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/15/2014 4:05:20 AM

Now, that’s a popemobile! Pope Francis is selling his Harley Davidson motorcycle. The pope, known for riding through Buenos Aires on a bus and taking to the streets of Rome in a modest Ford Focus, plans to see the chopper auctioned off next month with the proceeds going to charity, according to the auction house. The 1,585 cc Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide was presented to the pope as a gift from the motorcycle company in June 2013. The pope signed the gas tank of the bike “Francesco,” the Italian form of his papal name. The motorcycle will be auctioned by Bonhams on Feb. 6.

Did Il Papa ever fire that baby up and ride her around St Peter´s Square? I think we might have seen a headline on that...

Sochi Olympics Official: We

Sochi, Russia The International Olympic Committee´s chief coordinator for the Sochi Games said Monday the organization sounded a "red alert" in September because delays in hotel construction were posing a serious threat to the event. In an interview, Jean-Claude Killy, the IOC´s chief supervisor of the 2014 Olympics, offered the first public explanation for the rocky launch of these Games. Early arrivals here encountered unfinished hotels, unopened shops and myriad problems. Killy, who won three Olympic gold medals skiing for France, said that despite making 40 trips to Sochi in the seven years leading up to the Games, he didn´t understand the depth

Today marks the five-year anniversary of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Commonly known as the stimulus, the nearly $1 trillion law was hailed as an opportunity to bring America into the “21st century.” Just two years after the bill was signed into law, President Barack Obama admitted, “shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.” While the law failed to create jobs as promised, it has provided plenty of examples of waste, fraud, and abuse. Five years and at least $816.3 billion later, here are 10 ways the government wasted taxpayer money. 10) $1.3 Million for Stimulus Highway Signs

Secretary of State John Kerry spent his weekend discussing climate change in Indonesia: “We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” Kerry told the audience gathered at a U.S. Embassy-run American Center in a Jakarta shopping mall. “Nor should we allow any room for those who think that the costs associated with doing the right thing outweigh the benefits.” This is part of a six-day Kerry trip through Seoul, South Korea; Beijing, China; Jakarta; Indonesia; Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, then back to Washington.

Kayla Michelle Finley may be wishing that services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime had been around a little earlier. The South Carolina woman spent a night in jail last week for failing to return a video she rented -- in 2005. It was a VHS tape. Of a Jennifer Lopez movie. Finley, 27, was arrested Thursday in Pickens County, South Carolina, on a misdemeanor charge of failure to return the video, according to CNN affiliate WYFF-TV. The movie, "Monster-In-Law," starring Lopez and Jane Fonda as a feuding potential daughter- and mother-in-law, was rented from a video store, Dalton Videos,

Chihuahuas are on the loose in an Arizona neighborhood and flooding animal control offices with reports of the roaming strays. Animal control are having a rough time unleashing officers to patrol the area due to the unusually high number of calls, sometimes a dozen at one time. “We compared the number of calls we got in 2013 from that area to similar areas in town and the calls from Maryvale were three times higher than surrounding areas,” said Melissa Gable with Maricopa County Animal Care and Control. ”Part of it is these animals aren’t spayed or neutered, so they’re out looking

One of the ways in which the media abrogates its duty to inform the public is in neglecting to report key facts that would change the conclusions an audience would make about a set of events. It’s even worse when that media source is supported by the taxpayer just to be be propagandized into a political agenda. Here’s the latest egregious example from NPR: In the broadcast, the reporter, who is also local to Macon, suggests Republicans trampled the rights of black voters in Macon, GA to suppress black voter turn out in recent local elections. In fact, voter turnout

Tea Party challengers fizzle in Texas

Nearly two years after Ted Cruz´s come-from-behind primary victory, Tea Party challengers are fizzling in Texas. Defeating the former Senate and House GOP campaign committee heads would be a top trophy for conservative insurgents. But with just over two weeks until Election Day, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) are both heavy favorites against their primary opponents. Texas Republicans laugh that gadfly Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) challenge to Cornyn has been a comedy of errors. Tea Party leader Katrina Pierson (R) has failed to gain any real traction against Sessions as she’s struggled with fundraising and name recognition. Both veteran

The United States is nearly completely reliant on China for it’s supply of lifesaving antibiotics. “The crucial ingredients for nearly all antibiotics, steroids and many other lifesaving drugs are now made exclusively in China,” The New York Times reported in the 32nd paragraph of a Friday article entitled “Medicines made in India set off safety worries.” Indeed, 2014 marks the tenth anniversary of Bristol-Myers Squibb — the last American plant that manufactured the key ingredients for penicillin and other drugs — shuttering it’s upstate New York factory. “Like other manufacturing operations, drug plants have been moving to Asia because labor, construction, regulatory and

Al Gore’s global-warming

It’s time to chill on global warming. Has the polar vortex got you down? Are you feeling sympathy for friends in Atlanta who’ve endured temperatures frigid enough to drive southerners into the warm embrace of Johnnie Walker Scotch — if only they can chop themselves out of snow and ice in time for happy hour? This seems a good time to stop the deafening chatter of teeth and develop a coherent thought: I envy Al Gore. I’m jealous of all deluded salesmen of the junk science known by the politically correct term “climate change’’ who see a near future in

Trapped South African Miners Can

Suspected illegal gold miners trapped in a South African mine have a choice: get rescued and arrested, or stay in the mine. Eleven miners were rescued from the shaft, near Johannesburg, yesterday and promptly arrested. When the other trapped miners -- it´s not known how many are down there but some reports say it could be as many as 200 -- saw that, they decided to stay down there. The rescue operation has been postponed until the miners change their minds. Currently, the BBC reports, a "private security company" is guarding the mine to make sure the rescue can resume if the

“Honestly, Kevin, who gives a crap about your feelings toward Walmart?” That was Mike Rowe, star of the Discovery Channel series “Dirty Jobs.” He was responding on Facebook to a comment from “Kevin” suggesting, in essence, that he’d joined the Evil Empire by endorsing a Walmart initiative to buy $250 billion in US-made goods over the next 10 years and put them on their shelves. Kevin had been provoked by an unpaid voiceover Rowe did for a Walmart commercial touting the initiative that aired during the Olympics. He wasn’t the only one. On his Facebook page Rowe responded, and it strikes us he

Mitt Romney — the GOP’s uptight 2012 presidential nominee known for his family-man image and awkward sound bites — just might turn into the Republican Party’s top ?attack dog in 2016. “He will be the one who carries the fight and makes the arguments and shows the contrasts,” said Tom Rath, a New Hampshire GOP consultant who helped Romney’s 2012 bid. “He fills the void while we are waiting to select a nominee, and he can be a very effective and compelling spokesperson who doesn’t have to be anything but be himself.” The praise comes ?after Romney yesterday ?blasted former President Bill

NBC is under fire after one of its reporters questioned bronze medal winning skier Bode Miller so much about the death of his brother he began to sob uncontrollably. Correspondent Christin Cooper interviewed Miller just moments after he finished third in the Super G fnal, making him both the most medaled skier in history and the oldest person to win an alpine medal at the Games. [Snip] Miller was the first to bring up his brother, Chilly, a snowboarder who died in April from a seizure, but Cooper continued to push to the point that he had to walk away.

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that. This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spent part of his Sunday in his stocking feet at an Indonesian mosque, at one point beating a huge drum used to call Muslims to prayer.

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record. "I don´t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president,” Romney said on NBC´s “Meet the Press,” adding that the former first lady “has her own record and her own vision."

Washington - Mitt Romney told GOP pals Sunday to drop talk of ex-President Bill Clinton’s sexual shenanigans if wife Hillary makes her own White House bid. “I don’t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if Hillary Clinton decides to run for President,” the 2012 Republican nominee said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” citing the former First Lady’s own record, including stints as a U.S. senator from New York and as secretary of state.

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

An extensive collection of papers related to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s years in the Arkansas governor’s mansion remains under tight control at a public library in Little Rock, with access restricted by the Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock. The documents could provide new insight into the early chapter of the Clintons’ political careers, as reporters take a second look at Hillary Clinton’s past in light of the information contained in

This is what a policy looks like when it dies and goes to hell. The FT reports that violence is ramping up in Syria, with Assad agents using devastating “barrel bombs” against rebel areas. More: According to the opposition Syrian National Council, 20,000 people have been killed in barrel-bomb campaigns since the start of the conflict in 2011. A Turkish official said about 2,000 had been killed since peace talks began in Geneva last month.
