Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson Posted By: JoniTx- Tue, 18 43 2017 03:43:29 GMT In Oregon, a state known for its avid bicycling culture, the state Legislature’s approval of the first bike tax in the nation has fallen flat with riders. Democratic Gov. Kate Brown is expected to sign the sweeping $5.3 billion transportation package, which includes a $15 excise tax on the sale of bicycles costing more than $200 with a wheel diameter of at least 26 inches. Even though the funding has been earmarked for improvements that will benefit cyclists, the tax has managed to irk both anti’tax Republicans and environmentally conscious bikers. BikePortland publisher Jonathan Maus called it “an unprecedented step in

Trump Recertifies Iran Nuclear Deal, but Only Reluctantly

Washington Post, by Peter Baker Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Tue, 18 06 2017 04:06:31 GMT Washington – President Trump agreed on Monday to certify again that Iran is complying with an international nuclear agreement that he has strongly criticized, but only after hours of arguing with his top national security advisers, briefly upending a planned announcement as a legal deadline loomed. Mr. Trump has repeatedly condemned the deal brokered by President Barack Obama as a dangerous capitulation to Iran, but six months into his presidency he has not abandoned it. The decision on Monday was the second time his administration certified Iran’s compliance, and aides said a frustrated Mr. Trump had told his security team that

Never tell what you plan to do next. That was about the “settlements” and Trump’s advice to Israel to build but to quit yapping about it ahead of time… which only energizes Israel’s enemies. Tipping your hand is the worst sort of diplomacy whether it’s poker or politics – and now let’s talk about moving the United States Embassy to Jerusalem.
