Just One Fucking Time, Please?

Is it too much to ask?

Just one time I would like to be able to do a repair on a vehicle that doesn’t turn into a complete clusterfuck.

I just changed the frame rail fuel pump on the Bronco.

Note, frame rail location, right?

It’s right under the drivers door inside the frame.

Right?

Notice anything?

Like the front driveline RIGHT IN THE FUCKING WAY?

Oh, it gets better.

IMG_20180819_171407

See that coil wrapped brakeline right in front of the two bottom mounting bolts?

Yeah, that was fun too.

That picture was taken after I pried the fucker loose so I could bend it out of the way.

Now for some more fun

Notice you can’t even SEE the top mounting bolt, this is after I got the whole thing put back together and noticed that the ground wire had pulled out of the cheap ring connector from whoever did this the last time and I had to get up in there and crimp a new one on.

The cover around it has to be pried open to get the actual pump out and that spreads it apart so then that means there is a whole bunch of prying and cussing involved to get the bolt holes lined back up, the whole time you are fighting that brake line to keep it out of the way.

It took well over an hour to get it swapped out when it could have been a fifteen minute job if they had just moved the fucker six inches forward on the frame.

 

So while I am laying on the concrete under the fucker I looked over and saw some connector taped to the UNDERSIDE of the transmission cross member.

Who does that kind of shit on a four wheel drive?

The plastic clips are long gone so for the moment I wrapped it up and taped it back on the TOP SIDE of the fucking cross member to keep it from getting snagged on anything.

 

After I finally got everything back together I cycled the key about ten times to prime the fuel system and…. nothing.

It cranked and cranked but wouldn’t start.

It wasn’t leaking so I cycled the key another ten times with the same results.

I finally got in the fucker and held the gas pedal to the floor and it cranked a couple of times and fired up.

 

I got out and looked under it to check for leaks and heard something I really didn’t want to hear.

Ever since I got the thing the red STOP ENGINE light comes on  and the oil pressure gauges drops to zero after the thing gets hot and goes to idle when coming to a stop. If I rev it just a tiny bit the oil pressure comes back up and it’s fine.

What I heard when I was under it sounded very much like a very soft main bearing knock.

I am hereby officially going full  Sgt. Schultz.

Shultzy

 

I can’t afford to put an engine in this fucker so I am going to baby the shit out of it, luckily the Caballero  is legal again and still runs great so it ain’t like I ain’t gonna have any wheels if it shits the bed.

If it ain’t one thing it’s another.

Situation Normal, All Fucked Up.

Two Of The Biggest Banks In The U.S. Have Been Blocked From Participating In A $600 Million Dollar Louisiana Road Finance Plan Because They Restrict Their Customers Gun Sales Capabilities

Finally, someone with the balls to tell these Big Banking assholes No.

 

This is big and my hat is off to the two Louisiana politicians who led the way on this, the AG and the State Treasurer.

Louisiana bars banks from $600M deal because of gun policies

 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Louisiana officials have blocked two of the nation’s largest banks from involvement in a $600 million road financing plan because they have policies restricting gun sales by their commercial customers.
In a narrow 7-6 vote, the State Bond Commission refused to allow Citigroup and Bank of America to participate in the interstate highway financing work.
The effort to ban the banking giants from the road deal was led by Attorney General Jeff Landry and Treasurer John Schroder and opposed by Gov. John Bel Edwards’ administration.
Those pushing to exclude Bank of America and Citigroup from the financial work said by enacting firearm restriction policies for their corporate customers, the banks were violating Second Amendment rights.
Opponents said the move exceeded the commission’s authority and would force Louisiana into costly litigation.
I’m thinking the opponents of this are not only assholes but they are incorrect assholes to boot.
The Bond Commission can do business with whoever the fuck they want to and if they think that any of the proposed financing applicants have unsound business practices or are discriminatory in any way they are actually obligated to use someone else to shield the state from any connection to the possible ramifications of those practices.
The fact that is Citigroup and BofA is just the cherry on top for me.
I just hope that there are other states who have people with the balls to do this again and that they are paying attention to this.
I have said it many times in the past and seen the proof of it many times personally,
the kind of virtue signalling that CITI and BofA were doing with the restrictions on their gun dealing customers was directed squarely at the former Presidential administration to curry favor.
THE FUCKING SECOND THAT VIRTUE SIGNALLING STARTS COSTING THEM MONEY IS THE SECOND THEY WILL RETHINK THEIR STRATEGY.
Because it’s all about the money, those fuckers have the scruples of a scorpion and everyone knows it.

Now The Brits Are Going To Be Buying Popcorn In Bulk, High Level Politicians Being Named As Pedophiles On Twitter And It Sounds Awfully Familiar How

Here is the current Twitter feed for @British_Fight.

Last I saw it was looking like someone in the Royal family is going to be on the menu next.

So I wonder if Q has a buddy over there or if he has a laughably phony British accent he is using.

 

There is going to be a major shit storm hitting over there in 3…2…1…

 

This doesn’t even touch the involvement MI6 had with the FBI and the Russian collusion set up.

 

Oh yeah, that happened btw.

Buckle up Buttercups, the ride is about to get bumpy.

Think About This For A Minute

Read this and think about what is being said here and by whom.

 

12 former intelligence chiefs release a statement on Trump revoking Brennan clearance

Twelve former intelligence chiefs signed and released a public letter protesting the decision by President Donald Trump to revoke the security clearance of former FBI Director John Brennan, who has been very critical of the president.

“Ill-considered and unprecedented”

“We feel compelled to respond in the wake of the ill-considered and unprecedented remarks and actions by the White House,” the letter said. “We know John to be an enormously talented, capable and patriotic individual who devoted his entire adult life to the service of this nation.”

“Insinuations and allegations of wrongdoing on the part of Brennan while in office are baseless,” it continued. “Since leaving government service, John has chosen to speak out sharply regarding what he sees as threats to our national security.”

“[W]e all agree that the president’s action regarding John Brennan and the threats of similar action against other former officials has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearance – and everything to do with an attempt to stifle free speech,” they added.

The contention that Trump was shutting down free speech mirrored that of former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who said Wednesday that the decision violated Brennan’s First Amendment right of free speech. Clapper was also one of the signatories.

Here’s the list of the former officials who signed the letter of protest:

3 former Directors of Central Intelligence:

William Webster

George Tenet

Porter Goss

3 former CIA directors:

Gen. Michael Hayden

Leon Panetta

Gen. David Petraeus

A former director of national intelligence:

James Clapper

4 former deputy CIA directors:

John McLaughlin

Stephen Kappes

Avril Haines

David Cohen

Michael Morell

“He’s disgraced and discredited himself”

Reports indicate that the president is eager to revoke the security clearances of other officials over their statements opposing his administration and his policies.

Trump tweeted Thursday a quote from Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch which read, “Brennan has gone off the deep end, he’s disgraced and discredited himself. His conduct has been outrageous.”

Now let me ask you a question or two.

First off, exactly what in the fuck does having a security clearance have to do with your First Amendment protections?

 

Secondly, why would someone who currently has no official connection to the government have or need a security clearance in the first place?

For example, why does Hillary Fucking Clinton still have a security clearance?

It is a proven fact that she has broken multiple laws concerning the handling of communications DIRECTLY affecting the security of this nation.

The former heads of the CIA talking shit here is especially egregious and galling.

Third, do you see somewhat of a pattern in this mass protest over Brennan getting his clearance yanked?

I sure as fuck do.

These people are exposing themselves in broad daylight.

 

This is the Deep State people and they are pissed off because one of their main players got his ass spanked very publicly.

Allow me to let you in on a little secret.

They are scared shitless.

Trump has the goods on these motherfuckers and they know it.

Watch the ones that howl the loudest.

Brennan in particular has been extremely vocal in his verbal attacks on Trump.

I would be extremely surprised if more of these former administration flunkies don’t find themselves getting their security clearances yanked here in the near future also.

Let me put it to you this way.

When you leave an employer for any reason, do they allow you to keep the keys to the front door?

No?

Why do you think that is?

Why would you expect to keep your security clearance and have access to sensitive intelligence if you no longer held a position in government service?

Especially when it has been discovered that the administration you were a part of has been discovered to be a giant criminal enterprise?

Shit is happening behind the scenes folks. there is a huge battle going on and these occasional outbursts by these people that gets carried by a very complicit media is a sure way to tell when Trump has gotten in a good shot on them.

I Finally Tracked Her Down

Someone asked who the chick was from the head massage GIF I posted the other day and I have to admit that I was curious enough myself that I just spent about 15 minutes back tracking it.

But I finally found her and I hate to say it, but I have at least one T shirt that is older than the little chicky.

She is pretty cute but if you do an image search on her you will see all kind of different hair styles on her and to be honest, most of them suck. She looks the best with longer hair.

So, enough bullshit.

This little cutie is named Nina Dobrev.
