It seems impossible that the still-highly redacted version of the Mueller report reached the public only three days ago. It seems so much longer. Part of the reason it seems longer is that so much has been written in that brief period as everyone, including me, attempts to rip through 400+ pages looking for the key phrase, dropped name, or hidden angle that everyone missed. The sum total of articles written about the report is already surely many times longer than the original. Another aspect of it seeming such old news after just three days, is that we’ve been living in the spin zone for more than two weeks since William Barr produced his instant “summary” providing Donald Trump with every talking points he wanted. With Barr leaping in to make his enormously misleading assessment of the report, and every Trump-flavored source announcing that it was “time to move on” even before the first full sentence of the report was seen, the last two weeks have been long. And then, of course, there’s the fact that for over a year we liven with almost daily announcements that the report was going to drop. Any day now. Or next week. Or certainly before next month. That helped to make the arrival of the report seem late months ago — although the articles predicting the release of the report, were one of the few things that reporters got consistently wrong throughout the period of the investigation. But mostly what makes the report seem old news is that it is … mostly old news. That is, the report produced by the special counsel’s office consists in large part of details confirming reports that have circulated for months, or years. And that’s really the biggest news of the week—we were right. Christopher Steele was right. The FBI agents who suspected Trump’s campaign was reaching out to Russia were right. Reports that Michael Flynn, and Donald Trump Jr, and Jared Kushner were trying to build a “back channel” for secret communications with the Kremlin were right. Stories that the Paul Manafort shared private polling data with a Russian agent were right. The reports about Carter Page were right. The reports about George Papadopoulos were right. The stories about Donald Trump’s ongoing efforts to build a giant tower complete with personal space for Vladimir Putin and an Ivanka-branded spa were right. And every story of Trump trying to hide evidence, destroy evidence, suborn perjury, and simply end the investigation … they were all right. We were right. We were right. We were right. Now … what are we going to do about it? After we read some pundits, of course ...

The Thai Navy will begin removing a «seastead» home built by an American bitcoin investor and his partner off the coast of Thailand, an official said Saturday, as the couple remain in hiding from charges accusing them of violating the country's sovereignty. Chad Elwartowski and his Thai girlfriend Supranee Thepdet, known as «Bitcoin Girl Thailand», are facing charges of threatening the kingdom's independence after authorities found their ocean-based home about 12 nautical miles from Phuket's shore. But Elwartowski said the home was 13 nautical miles out and therefore past Thailand's territorial waters. The Thai Navy, which filed a complaint last week to Phuket's police, said the couple did not seek permission to construct their floating platform and a patrol ship was sent out on Saturday to dismantle it. «We will do it today if we can,» a senior Navy official told AFP, adding that it might prove difficult given the depth of the waters where the home is located. After the seastead is ..
Editor’s Note: No one knows how to hire Hiring is the lifeblood of the world.

1930 Ruxton Model C Roadster by Baker-Raulang will be offered for sale in a featured lot at RM Sotheby’s upcoming auction, “The Guyton Collection” that will be held on May 4-5, 2019, in St. Louis, Missouri. The pre-auction estimate of this rare car is $350,000 - $450,000 and it will be offered in lot 382 at the auction. “This car has a very well-known history and is body no. 11 of the 12 Ruxton roadsters produced. It is fitted with Continental engine no. 18S-162 and chassis no. 11005, making it the sixth car assembled at the Kissel Motor Car facility. Kissel had earlier taken on assembling the Ruxton transmissions under contract and later agreed to assemble complete Ruxton cars. The company was run by George Kissell, President and his brother, Wil Kissell. Wil owned a Ruxton phaeton, and the very roadster offered here was George’s personal Ruxton. Despite a hostile takeover attempt by Mr. Andrews, which resulted in Kissel’s bankruptcy, the brothers kept their Ruxton long term and would sing the marque’s praise to whoever listened,” states the auction house. This car was originally owned by Ruxton President George Kissel and it has been formerly part of the D. Cameron Peck Collection from 1939-1959. For over two decades, this car has been part of the Guyton Collection. It is one of 12 Baker-Raulang-bodied roadsters; seven exist today and it was presented in the special Ruxton class at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It has also been awarded the prestigious FIVA Pre-war Trophy. RM Sotheby’s further says, “Described as the ‘most turbulent tale in automotive history,’ the story of America’s first front-drive automobile is a saga worthy of a major motion picture. Launched at the onset of the Great Depression, author Jeffrey Godshall described the Ruxton as ‘a superb automobile that never had a chance.’ The car was designed by William J. Muller, an engineering wizard who spent his early life on the racetracks of America. At age 18, in 1912, Muller set a land speed record on Galveston beach driving an Excelsior motorcycle to 103 mph. He was an intuitive driver, crack-shot mechanic, and eventually crewed with — or managed race teams — for the finest drivers piloting the most exceptional machines of the era.” https://www.blouinartinfo.com/ Founder: Louise Blouin
