Way to derail a future trade deal, who do you think you are, Trump!

Simon Bridges says Boris Johnson has 'buffoon-like quality' and backs no-deal Brexit
Collette Devlin·17:32, July, 24th 2019

Opposition leader Simon Bridges says incoming British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has "buffoon-like quality" and has backed a no-deal Brexit.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said a no-deal Brexit would not be good for New Zealand.

When asked to describe the incoming British Prime Minister, Bridges said he was "mercurial".

Opposition leader, Simon Bridges has called newly-elected leader, Boris Johnson a "buffoon" and backed his no-deal Brexit approach.

"This is a guy who can be on and can be off, he's got that buffoon-like quality."

Millions of others had also called him a buffoon, Bridges said.

He then started pedalling back from the comment and said it was more a term of endearment.

Bridges said he meant that Johnson was someone who sometimes got a bit of marmalade on his chin, sometimes did not say the right thing, and whose personal life could be interesting.

He then recalled a time he met Johnson, calling him impressive.

"He really knew his stuff and is the right man for the times in Britain because he is more outward looking.They have been through a grim time and he is going to give them more optimism."

Johnson's no-deal position on Brexit would be good for New Zealand because he was outward facing, he said.

"It means he will be very motivated for a free trade agreement and he has made clear we will be one of, if not the first, off the block."

He would be good for New Zealand because he had a real regard for the Commonwealth, Bridges said.

Meanwhile, Ardern described Johnson as "seasoned".

"I don't describe people in politics in that way [buffoon]".

She was focused on trying to make sure New Zealand maintained good, respectful relationships.

When asked about Johnson's controversial comments on ​burqas, where he said, Muslim women wearing burqas "looked like letter boxes", she said: "Ultimately it is up to the people that he serves to hold him to account, not other politicians. My job is to work closely with those that we have longstanding relationships with, and the UK is certainly one of them."

She believed a no-deal Brexit would not be good for any of the UK's existing trading partners.

New Zealand was not alone in that, she said.

"We have the added downside that a no-deal Brexit would mean there would be a lot of demand for trade agreements and at the moment, if there is an orderly exit, we have potentially a much higher wrangling, in terms of negotiating an agreement. So there is that added weight and downside for us."

"Already, we were amongst the first cabs off the rank for a trade agreement in a scenario where there is an orderly Brexit. Unfortunately, with a no-deal Brexit, there will be a certain amount of chaos and no one benefits from that - New Zealand included."

Ardern said she had not met Johnson before but they had exchanged text messages after his leadership win, getting off on familiar terms.

She had sent him a message saying "Kia ora Boris" and he sent back a message saying "Kia ora Jacinda".

She also acknowledged it would be a busy time for him and his Government with Brexit.

"He knows New Zealand well and that is a positive start for the relationship," she said.

During general debate in the House, Finance Minister Grant Robertson poked fun at Bridges for making the buffoon comment.

* This story has been corrected to clarify that Simon Bridges said Boris Johnson had buffoon-like qualities only.

Missouri Walmart panic caused by armed man testing gun rights

Image
Mr. Andreychenko surrendered to police without incident.

A man who sparked panic by walking into a Walmart with a rifle and body armour told police he was testing his right to bear arms in public.

Dmitriy Andreychenko entered the shop heavily armed, days after a mass shooting at another of Walmart's stores.

"I wanted to know if that Walmart honoured the second amendment," the 20-year-old told police after his arrest.

Prosecutors have charged him with making a terrorist threat.

If found guilty, the charge could result in a four-year prison sentence and a fine of $10,000 (£8,300), Greene County prosecutor Dan Patterson said in a statement.

On 8 August, Mr Andreychenko entered the store "armed with an AR style rifle slung across his chest", police said, wearing a ballistic vest and recording himself. Both the rifle and a handgun he carried were loaded.

He told police he did not expect the reaction his walk generated.

"This is Missouri, I understand if we were somewhere else like New York or California, people would freak out," he said, according to police filings.

Days before, 20 people had been killed in a Walmart in El Paso by a gunman carrying an automatic rifle.

The police statement also revealed that his wife, Angelice, had told him "it was not a smart idea".

"She told him that people were going to take this seriously due to recent events... she told him he was just an immature boy," it said.

His sister Anastasia also told police he had asked her to record video of what he called his "social experiment".

"She told him that it was a bad idea and that she did not want to do that," it said.

Mr Andreychenko told police he only intended to buy some grocery bags and check if anyone tried to stop him.

The store manager "believed Andreychenko came to the store to shoot people", the police statement said, and triggered the fire alarm to evacuate customers.

Mr Andreychenko was held at gunpoint by an off-duty fire fighter, who was legally carrying his own weapon, until police arrested him.

Prosecutor Dan Patterson said that while residents of Springfield, Missouri, were allowed to carry weapons, "that right does not allow an individual to act in a reckless and criminal manner endangering other citizens."

The terrorist threat charge covers an act which "recklessly disregards the risk of causing the evacuation" of a building, or "knowingly causes a false belief or fear... that a condition exists involving danger to life."

Mr Andreychenko is being held on a $10,000 bond, and will not be allowed to possess a firearm if he does make bail.

Republican senator says he does not believe there is enough evidence to impeach Trump

Image

Sen. Jerry Moran, a Republican from Kansas, voiced his disapproval of the ongoing impeachment effort today.

After reading the whistleblower complaint and a transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine's leader, Moran said he does not see evidence to support impeaching the President.

"I'm not of the view that there is a conclusion that impeachment should occur. I don’t see that evidence," Moran said.

He spoke after a roundtable with Attorney General William Barr and local law enforcement officials at Wichita State University. Barr did not discuss Ukraine at the roundtable, or at a separate event earlier Wednesday in Topeka, Kansas. Moran said he had not spoken with Barr about Ukraine or the attorney general's mention of the July call.

Moran said impeachment was getting in the way of the "normal everyday, every year kind of work" done in Congress.

"We need a country in which we’re working together, not pulled apart, and this latest conversation about impeachment is pulling us apart further," he added.

Yep. Sen Jerry Moran (KS) is a dipshit and a KOCH man, like Pompeo, like Kobach. But his demeanor is the softest spoken, the quiet, smiling, mild-mannered sort. He also spent the 4th of July this year in Russia with that special select assortment of R-politicians from the Senate and Congress (NO D's allowed!). It doesn't surprise me in the least he would conclude with this complicitous appeasement talk. Embarassing, self-damning, but not surprising. He's essentially scared the KOCH's will leave KS and take their 8000 jobs. That's about it. And he takes their meager campaign money and does their bidding. Every time. In person he acts like a doofus, but wow he does what he's told to. And that's the 'civil' explanation.

Most elite R's are in that cloud of echo chambers of their own creation, the us and them canyon of fear and white privilege. The fact that the KOCH's AND the Russians and maybe the Saudi's have decided to bankroll so much... Erik Prince wants a HOLY WAR, who's in?

The answer in Johnson's case was a single digit number.

Florida police made a traffic stop and found a bag full of drugs fittingly labeled 'Bag Full Of Drugs'

Image

A Florida traffic stop turned into a surprise narcotics bust after police found what looked to be a bag full of drugs in the car.

The clue?

It was labeled "Bag Full Of Drugs."

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper made the stop after observing a car going 25 miles per hour over the limit Saturday, the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office said.

A Sheriff's K-9 arrived at the scene and alerted police to the presence of contraband inside.

That's when police said they found the narcotics -- there were approximately 75 grams of methamphetamine, 1.36 kilograms of GHB, 1 gram of cocaine, 3.6 grams of fentanyl, 15 MDMA tablets and drug paraphernalia.

"Note to self- do not traffic your illegal narcotics in bags labeled 'Bag Full Of Drugs,'" a Facebook post from the Sheriff's office read. "Our K-9's can read."

4WD is no use if you're floating
14:19, February 21st, 2020.

This one is almost beyond words...

A Nissan ute driver in the UK sees a large flooded area of road, complete with a rescue crew IN A BOAT and yet still decides it is a good idea to forge on ahead.

I mean, after all, their ute does have four-wheel drive and a snorkel - so it can go anywhere, right?

Image
SUPPLIED
The snorkel doesn't mean it is a submarine, mate.

Well, as common sense would suggest, four-wheel drive is really only any use if the wheels are actually touching the ground, something that common sense should also tell you doesn't happen when you are floating, as the driver - who clearly lacks any form of common sense - quickly finds out.

Of course, the driver is ignoring the number one rule when going into water - know how deep it is, or don't go.

But the absolute best part of this video, however, is the utter disbelief of the rescue crew watching the idiot soldier on in.

Jaws are dropped and heads are shaken, but the best reaction is from the guy right at the end who perfectly sums up our frustration and wordlessly asks the question we are all wondering - why did you do that?! - simply by spreading his arms as the Nissan floats gently by him.

Just over a year ago, during a flood event near here, a mother, driving with her 3 year old son, drove past orange pylons and a road closure sign.
The minivan became struck and ended up in the river. The boy was swept away, and the body found 2 months later.
She was charged with impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death, and criminal negligence causing death.

'Mad' Mike Hughes dies after crash-landing homemade rocket

A US daredevil pilot has been killed during an attempted launch of a homemade rocket in the Californian desert.


"Mad" Mike Hughes, 64, crash-landed his steam-powered rocket shortly after take-off near Barstow on Saturday.

A video on social media shows a rocket being fired into the sky before plummeting to the ground nearby.

Hughes was well-known for his belief that the Earth was flat. He hoped to prove his theory by going to space.
