Are You Seeing Unattended Bikes In Your Neighborhood? Here's The Story

I had been seeing a bunch of bright yellow/Lime Green bicycles parked everywhere in my neighborhood, this is why...When Lucy and I took our walk there was one parked across the street. Curiosity got the best of us, we went to check it out.
With station-free bike sharing, you can ride wherever you please. All you have to do is park your bike legally.
With ofo, you pick up a bike, get where you're going, and leave it there. No docking stations, no walking the rest of the way. Because that's what a bike share is supposed to be. Choose a better bike share grab a bike anywhere park a bike anywhere legal.
A company, OFO Bikes, just began a bike sharing program in Scottsdale. Unlike other programs, there are no stations or docking areas for these bikes. People just leave them laying everywhere, then someone else can pick it up, stick a credit card in, ride wherever they want and leave it there. Again, no controls.

I'm assuming you can ride as long as you want. 

If you park and get off you would then have to pay another fee?

On bike shows fee is a $1.00

Suggest go to their web site and get all the information you need.

RE: Schumer Hypocrisy@RepByrne and @HouseDemocrats

Retweets wasn’t working, so I took this route: @RepByrne and @HouseDemocrats THIS is the poster that @HouseDemocrats tried to prevent me from displaying on the House floor earlier today. They do not want the American people to know the facts about the #SchumerShutdown.

More
Democrats objected to this poster used by @RepByrne featuring an old quote from @SenSchumer during the last shutdown. So now the House is voting on whether it abides by chamber rules. (Really.)
More
The House voted that Byrne's poster was in order. Byrne is now trying to resume his speech. But Democrats keep booing him.
More
I tried to deliver a speech outlining the facts about the #SchumerShutdown, and it seemed some on the other side of the aisle didn't like what I had to say. They can try to keep us from saying it, but the fact remains that Senate Democrats have shut down the federal government.

#RELEASETHEMEMO Release the FISA Memo

 

Senate Conservatives Fund

A classified four-page memo detailing U.S. government surveillance abuses was recently shown to lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
It’s being described by conservatives who have seen the memo as “shocking” and “deeply alarming.”
Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said it also “raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation.
While the memo is classified, conservatives believe that it should be made public as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve to know the truth.
If you agree, please send an instant message to your congressman, your two senators, and to the president urging them to take steps to declassify and release the memo.
Sending this message will take just one minute, but it will have a major impact in holding our government accountable. Our system will find your representatives and help you send them a pre-drafted letter.
Surveillance abuses have occurred under FISA and Americans have a right to know details of those abuses. We have a rare opportunity to know details of how our own government broke the law and possibly violated the Constitution.
Please take action now so steps can be taken to stop abuses in the future. Tell Washington to release the memo!

Thank you for making your voice heard. First Posted on the Senate Conservation Fund

Democrats Shut Down Government Defending Invasion of America by Illegals

Democrats just made history! The first time the government has been shut down defending the invasion of the United States!

“Almost all Democrats voted to block the short-term bill that would have sustained federal funding at current levels, called a continuing resolution (CR), citing the fact that the measure did not include a solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program.”

Transcript of interview with Fusion GPS co-founder Released by House panel

 After revelations that Steele’s work was funded, indirectly, by the Clinton campaign, McCain told POLITICO that he had no regrets about delivering the dossier to Comey.

Simpson then recounted, with new detail, the tale of how the Steele dossier reached the desk of then-FBI Director James Comey after the 2016 election — delivered personally by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
He said Steele bumped into longtime McCain aide David Kramer at a conference in Nova Scotia and ended up discussing the dossier. Later, Kramer followed up with Steele.
Simpson said Kramer told him that McCain wanted to "ask questions about it at the FBI. ... All we sort of wanted was for the government to do its job and we were concerned about whether the information that we provided previously had ever, you know, risen to the leadership level of the FBI."
"It was our belief that Director Comey if he was aware — if he was made aware of this information would treat it seriously,” he added.


Senator Tom Cotton (R -AR) Leads Fight Against Amnesty

As Democrats and liberal Republicans seek to use the threat of a government shutdown to force President Trump to agree to a liberal amnesty deal that does nothing meaningful to improve border security and reform our immigration system, one senator is standing tall.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) has shown much-needed leadership on this issue and has taken the fight directly to the liberals in both parties who want to further weaken border security.
In response to the Democrats’ campaign for amnesty, Cotton said, “So Democrats are now threatening to shut down the government if they don’t get amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants. Let’s see how that works out for them … in places like WV, IN, MO, ND, & MT.”
To those who are critical of the border wall, he said, “Of course walls work. Those who say ‘walls don’t work’ really mean ‘walls work … they reduce illegal immigration & I don’t want that.'”
And in response to the amnesty deal cut between the Democrats and pro-amnesty Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Cotton said, “Might as well roll it straight into the trash can … mass amnesty far beyond DACA, fake border security, no end to chain migration.”
Tom Cotton’s willingness to take the fight to the other side and to support President Trump’s effort to enact true border security stands in stark contrast to the actions of Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Instead of putting a good bill on the Senate floor and daring the Democrats to kill it, McConnell is refusing to consider anything until the president agrees to some version of amnesty. “I’m looking for something President Trump supports,” McConnell said, “and he’s not yet indicated what measure he’s willing to sign.”
This, of course, is completely false.
The president has made it clear that he wants immigration reforms to (1) end the visa lottery, (2) stop chain migration, and (3) build a wall. The problem is that Mitch McConnell doesn’t want to even try to pass these policies without amnesty.
Please call Senator Tom Cotton at (202) 224-2353 to thank him for his leadership in fighting for true immigration reform.
Also, please tell your congressman and senators to fund the border wall and to defund sanctuary cities.
These are two spending priorities that should be part of any funding bill passed by a Republican-controlled Congress.
You can use our issue advocacy platform to send a message. It takes just a minute to send an email to all three representatives.

Thank you for making your voice heard and for standing up for the Constitution and the rule of law. First Posted on Senate Conservative Fund

AZ Senator McCain Used By Fusion GPS To Pass Phony Trump Dossier to FBI

Fusion GPS Admits They Used John McCain to Pass Anti-Trump Dossier to Obama-Era Intel Agencies
EILAT, Israel — The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher hired to compile the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain.
The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.
The disclosure raises questions about whether McCain knew that the information he delivered to the intelligence community was actually an opposition document reportedly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
McCain’s office did not reply yesterday to a Breitbart News request for comment on the matter.
Last December, it was revealed that it was McCain who notoriously passed the controversial dossier documents produced by the Washington opposition research firm Fusion GPS to then FBI Director James Comey, whose agency reportedly utilized the dossier as a basis for its probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Writing in a New York Times oped last Tuesday, Fusion GPS founders Glenn R. Simpson and Peter Fritch relate that they helped McCain share their anti-Trump dossier with the intelligence community via an “emissary.”
“After the election, Mr. Steele decided to share his intelligence with Senator John McCain via an emissary,” the Fusion GPS founderrelated. “We helped him do that. The goal was to alert the United States national security community to an attack on our country by a hostile foreign power.”
It was not clear from their statement whether McCain knew Fusion GPS was behind the dossier. Fusion GPS paid former intelligence agent Christopher Steele to do the purported research for the document. Steele later conceded in court documents that part of his work still needed to be verified.
In October, McCain denied providing the dossier to BuzzFeed and said that he only gave the material to the FBI. “I gave it to no one except for the director of the FBI. I don’t know why you’re digging this up now,” McCain told the Daily Caller during what the news website described as a testy exchange.
While the Fusion GPS oped sheds some light on the manner in which McCain obtained the dossier, the Fusion founders did not name the “emissary” who delivered the document to McCain.
A January 11 statement from McCain attempted to explain why he provided the documents to the FBI but did not mention how he came to possess the dossier or whether he knew who funded it.
“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the director of the FBI,” McCain said at the time. “That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”
Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Moscow, said McCain first consulted him about the claims inside the dossier at a security conference in Canada shortly after last November’s presidential election.
Wood stated that McCain had obtained the documents from the senator’s own sources. “I told him I was aware of what was in the report but I had not read it myself, that it might be true, it might be untrue. I had no means of judging really,” Wood further told BBC Radio 4 in January.

Last Month, Wood related that he served as a “go-between” to inform McCain about the dossier contents. “My mission was essentially to be a go-between and a messenger, to tell the senator and assistants that such a dossier existed,” Wood told Fox News. MORE: HERE

Jackson said he decided to run what's called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, known as MoCA. It is a well-known and well-tested assessment that doctors can quickly use to detect "mild cognitive dysfunction," according to the test instructions. "It does rule out the need to do any other cognitive assessment," Jackson said. The President passed the 30 point test with a perfect score.
The 30-point test takes about 10 minutes and asks the patient to perform a simple batch of memory and mental tasks. The tasks include drawing a line between a number and a letter in ascending order. To test visuoconstructional skills. The patient is asked to draw a clock and put numbers on it,
