being ´too expensive´ is expected to sell

Famed engineer Marc Isambard Brunel lost a bid to design the US Capitol Building in Washington, DC, 224 years ago. Now, his design has been revealed after being tucked away in a large album in the Brunel family archive for more than 150 years. The drawing is tipped to sell at the auction in London on Wednesday for $19,600 (£15,000). Brunel, who went on to design the Thames Tunnel in London and was the father of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, submitted his plans to a committee which was appointed to choose the design for the Capitol Hill building in 1793.

Washington started out as a swamp, had much improvement, then returned to a swamp.

I thought "Brunel" was one of Obama´s AKA´s and assigned to one of his many SSN´s.

Coincidence, I guess.

Comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler has apologized to Bill Clinton rape-accuser Juanita Broaddrick for “not knowing” her story, telling her now, “I believe you.” The Chelsea host and left-wing activist tweeted Sunday about the accusations against Alabama Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore: (Tweet) “Imagine being molested by an older man,” Handler tweeted. “Then that man denies every doing it and then goes on and gets elected to United States senate.

House Republicans managed to pass the first comprehensive tax reform bill in over three decades Thursday without the support of 13 GOP defectors. The bill, which passed 227-205, eliminates the state and local tax deduction, a measure designed to compensate residents of high tax states by reducing their federal tax bill. This revenue saving measure sparked opposition from Republican delegations from New Jersey, New York and California, who believe the bill will result in a higher net tax for their constituents.Here are the 13 GOP members who voted “no” on the bill:

The Department of Defense retweeted a post Thursday calling for the president’s resignation.The Pentagon marred its Twitter presence briefly by retweeting a post from a Twitter user named “PROUD RESISTER” that proposed a so-called “simple” solution to the sexual harassment situation going on in Washington. The Twitter user appears to be a staunch critic of the right, as well as the president, and seems to be affiliated with the website proudresister.com, which sells resistance merchandise.Unlike the act of liking a post, retweeting is a two-step process.(Tweets) The Department of Defense promptly undid the retweet, but not before journalists and other

WASHINGTON, DC–Conservatives are pushing the Senate to jettison the American Bar Association (ABA) from any role in evaluating President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees, noting that the ABA unfairly discriminates against conservatives.The private-sector group has created a “Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary,” which was used by officials in the Democratic administrations of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to vet potential nominees before the presidents nominated them.Under recent Republican administrations of George W. Bush and Donald Trump, the White House does not seek ABA input before making nominations.But the Senate Judiciary Committee currently considers the ABA’s evaluation once a nomination is

House Democrats mocked Republicans after the lower chamber passed legislation to overhaul the tax code on Thursday. House Republicans had started to clap after the bill received enough votes to pass when Democrats joined in and sang “na na na na hey hey hey goodbye." House Democrats appear to be referring to the possibility that Republicans who voted for the bill will not be reelected due to their decisions. Democrats mockingly sang the same song in May when House Republicans passed their ObamaCare repeal and replace legislation. The measure was approved by a vote of 227-205 Thirteen Republicans in the

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate sexual assault allegations against Senator Al Franken (D-MN) on Thursday. Unlike the recent allegations targeted towards Alabama Judge Roy Moore, McConnell did not call for Franken to “step aside.” In a statement, McConnell called the allegations against Franken “credible”, yet did not name Franken by name or call for the senator to resign: “As with all credible allegations of sexual harassment or assault, I believe the Ethics Committee should review the matter. I hope the Democratic Leader will join me on this. Regardless of party, harassment

Democratic Sen. Al Franken was accused by a California sports radio broadcaster on Thursday of kissing and groping her without her consent in 2006 -- but the politician has a history of making crude remarks about sexually assaulting women. Franken, then a comedian, was quoted in a 1995 New York Magazine article discussing a skit for “Saturday Night Live” that involved drugging and raping CBS reporter Lesley Stahl. Franken, at the time a writer for “SNL,” suggested one skit should play out with “60 Minutes” commentator Andy Rooney finding an empty pill bottle on his desk. (Photo) “´I give the

Who Are the Real Fascists in American Politics?

President Donald J. Trump is routinely referred to as a fascist by the left. Much of that rhetoric originates from within the Democrat Party. We hear little to no outrage by either Democrats or Republicans at the use of this inflammatory language. In fact, the cliched phrase “the silence is deafening” finds a real application in this climate of extreme disparagement. Think of it: Trump’s desire to have extreme vetting of immigrants from certain war-torn Islamic countries is portrayed repeatedly as racist, Islamaphobic, and fascist. These countries are hotbeds of Islamic terrorism. They are countries where members of the Taliban,

Hillary Clinton believes appointing a special counsel to investigate her ties to a uranium deal with Russia would be an abuse of power. Clinton said that if she were to be put under investigation by a special counsel, the United States would be like an “authoritarian regime.” Clinton believes it would send a bad message to the country and would be “demoralizing” to people who have served at the Department of Justice, Axios reported Wednesday. Clinton told Mother Jones: If they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com.

(Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter.
