When I say “Do your research” I mean do research on Michael’s innocence by reading factual articles and documents! NOT TABLOID STORIES. The people believing the documentary are disgusting and full of cringe!

El hermano olvidado del Enzo

Maserati si bien es cierto que tiene una historia de carreras, también es cierto que en los últimos años se ha visto más como una marca de ‘grand tourers’, pero no podemos olvidar esa increíble época para los super autos de casi mediados del nuevo siglo; tuvimos autos como el Porsche Carrera GT, Pagani Zonda, McLaren SLR y el Ferrari Enzo, todos estos coches, que como niños siempre soñamos en tener. Pues es aquí donde surge el auto del que les hablamos el día de hoy: el Maserati MC12. 
Este especial super auto, que comparte chasis con su hermano el Ferrari Enzo, no fue pensando en si para la calle, como lo fue el Enzo, sino que Maserati quería correr este auto en la FIA GT, así que gracias a las reglas de este campeonato, Maserati se vió forzado a producir una serie de MC12s para la calle. Gracias FIA. Se produjeron 60 coches entre 2004 y 2005, 10 de ellos para el campeonato. 
El MC12 tenía un motor V12 (¿qué más?) de 6L que producía 621 caballos de fuerza y 652 N/m de torque, por lo que podía lograr los 330km/h. Por cuanto a cifras, parece mucho más lento que el Enzo, sin embargo hay que tomar en cuenta el diseño de éste por cuanto a la carga aerodinámica que lograba producir, basta con ver su enorme spoiler para comprobar esto. La mayoría de estos coches se vendieron en este hermoso ‘paint scheme’ blanco con azul, aunque hay unos pocos en otros colores (como negro). #maserati #mc12 #corsa #fia #gt #enzo #ferrari #mexico🇲🇽 #carfacts #historia #history #supercar #superauto #v12 #italia #italian #exotic #spotter

O Palácio Ducal (em italiano: Palazzo Ducale), também conhecido como Palácio do Doge, é um símbolo da cidade de Veneza e uma obra-prima do gótico veneziano. Surge na área monumental da Piazza San Marco, entre a Piazzetta e o Molo.

O palácio actual foi construído entre 1309 e 1424. Giovanni Bon e Bartolomeo Bon criaram a chamada Porta della Carta, um monumental portão em estilo gótico tardio na Piazzetta, ao lado do palácio.

Antiga sede do Doge de Veneza e da magistratura veneziana e é hoje sede do Museo di Palazzo Ducale e faz parte da Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia.

They all want to love but billions have never lived to love me because they didn’t even know my only son was kidnapped away from me - now I am me again , they want to look and find out the truth while America holds a clone to promote as Great . Only a Great President can tell the truth and I have seen know in my life time being Ibn Muhammad Ali . My father Muhammad ALI and I have so much in common but you have to start with the eyes first before you understand the spirit of humanity . For once you see my pretty face , their is no going back into the lies of the devil in humanity . This is it - the year of forgiveness or WAR if my life is taken away without justice . I know no man that has ever been a great cop apart from me , so I am officially the head of security on a global scale . I am your leader , so step aside and behave in command . My dad didn’t go to war but I did as his only son under age not even old enough to be a teenager. So if you think I had a life of a kid , now I live it because my child hood was stolen away from me . SPOT THE DIFFERENCE- QUALITY AGAINST QUANTITY : Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. - SEE THE FACE CLOSELY AND OBSERVE THE FACIAL STRUCTURE OF @muhammadali - BE A HUMAN BEING AND DONT BE STUPID OF MY DADS GENETICAL BLUEPRINT SEEING THE FACE IS ONE THING UNDERSTANDING IT IS ANOTHER -  THE ONLY MALE FACE THAT WILL EVER MATCH @muhammadali IS @muhammadali.ibn BECAUSE LIKE FATHER GAVE BIRTH TO SON #humanitarian #conspriacy #ibnmuhammadali #muhammadali #son #blood #male #one #existing #truth #justice #freedom #america #watch #legend #wisdom #genetics #orhpositive #dna #world #champion #kentucky #history #louisville #england #nigeria #africa #europe ‭

McSally says she spoke to Trump about McCain attacks: “Arizona GOP Sen. Martha McSally spoke privately to President Donald Trump about his attacks on John McCain on Wednesday evening, McSally told reporters in Arizona on Thursday.
Trump has repeatedly disparaged McCain, the dead longtime Arizona senator and Vietnam veteran, including new attacks on Thursday. McSally said that Trump listened to her.
"There is a lot of disrespect going on out there all the way around. I did talk to the president yesterday. I wanted to make sure he understood how I felt about Sen. McCain and how Arizona felt about Sen. John McCain. And he heard me," McSally said.” @senmcsallyaz @realdonaldtrump @politico #politics #politicaltalk

Israel, anti-Semitism and 2020 fight on display as AIPAC gathers: “The politics of Israel, anti-Semitism and the 2020 presidential campaign will move to center stage in Washington over the next few days as the powerful pro-Israel group AIPAC holds its annual policy conference and President Donald Trump prepares to host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House.
The dual meetings come as Trump pushes his party ever closer to Israel — most recently with a Thursday announcement that the U.S. will recognize Israel’s annexation of Syria’s Golan Heights — and Democrats face an internal debate over their party’s support for arguably the most important U.S. ally in the Middle East.” @b.netanyahu @politico #politicaltalk #politics #politicaldebates

The need for speed: Why Congress and the FAA outsourced oversight to Boeing: “Aviation unions and other critics offered dire warnings in 2004 when the Federal Aviation Administration proposed expanding the role of aircraft manufacturers like Boeing in deciding whether their planes were safe to fly: It would be “reckless,” they wrote, would “lower the safety of the flying public” and would lead to “ever increasing air disaster.”
Fifteen years later, the FAA’s strategy of delegating much of its regulatory oversight to hundreds of employees at the companies it oversees may be too entrenched to reverse — even with the intense scrutiny on how Boeing’s troubled 737 MAX jet won approval to fly.” @politico #politicaltalk #politics #politicaldebates

Obama to meet with freshman Dems next week: “Former President Barack Obama will meet with House Democratic freshmen on Monday, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is hosting the reception, which will occur Monday evening after House votes, to “celebrate the freshman class of the 116th Congress.” The event is only for members and limited to the 60-plus freshman class.
After keeping a low profile for much of President Donald Trump’s first year and a half in office, Obama was heavily involved in the midterms, endorsing dozens of candidates both at the nationwide and state levels and campaign for several of the highest-profile Democrats running.” @barackobama @speakerpelosi @politico #politicaltalk #politics #politicaldebates

Interior drops casino roadblock at center of Zinke lawsuit: “The Interior Department has dropped its opposition to a new tribal casino in Connecticut, a decision that effectively nullifies a lawsuit that alleged former Secretary Ryan Zinke kept the project on ice for more than a year because of improper political pressure.
Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs this month approved a proposal from the Mashantucket Pequot tribe to open an off-reservation casino in partnership with the Mohegan tribe, according to a notice to be published in Friday’s Federal Register. The casino project attracted intense opposition from Las Vegas-based MGM Resorts International and Nevada lawmakers, who pressed their case with Zinke and other Interior officials, as POLITICO reported last year.” @usinterior @politico #politicaltalk #politics #politicaldebates

White House rebuffs Dem demands for docs on Trump-Putin talks: “The White House on Thursday rejected congressional Democrats’ demands for documents relating to President Donald Trump’s private discussions with Russian President Vladimir Putin — escalating tensions between the Trump administration and Congress over a crucial piece of Democrats’ oversight ambitions.
“The committees’ letters cite no legal authority for the proposition that another branch of the government can force the president to disclose diplomatic communications with foreign leaders or that supports forcing disclosure of the confidential internal deliberations of the president’s national security advisors,” White House Counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in a letter obtained by POLITICO to the chairmen of three House committees seeking documents and witness interviews.” @realdonaldtrump @politico #politicaltalk #politics #politicaldebates

Trump to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights: “President Donald Trump announced Thursday that the United States will formally recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights.
"After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!" the president tweeted.
Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria during the Six-Day War in 1967, and effectively annexed the territory in 1981.

Cummings demands docs on Kushner's alleged use of encrypted app for official business: “House Democrats are raising new concerns about what they say is recently revealed information from Jared Kushner’s attorney indicating that the senior White House aide has been relying on encrypted messaging service WhatsApp and his personal email account to conduct official business.
The revelation came in a Dec. 19 meeting — made public by the House Oversight and Reform Committee for the first time on Thursday — between Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Rep.

Is This What Could Doom Elizabeth Warren?: “Elizabeth Warren “is facing tough questions about fundraising and electability,” or so says the Associated Press. She is languishing in fifth place in a spate of polls of Democratic primary voters; Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke are dominating the money race; and her detailed and thoughtful position papers on health care, monopolies, and tax policy threaten to define her as the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy Winner of 2020—the candidate who wins a prize from policy wonks and civic-minded pundits, but who never wins the nomination.
There’s no single answer for Warren’s slow start. You could blame the self-inflicted wound of the DNA test, and the media’s fascination with the Bright Shiny Object of Betomania. Perhaps it’s because she’s a woman in an era when misogyny remains all too rife. Maybe, after years in the spotlight, she feels too much like yesterday’s news. But there might be a more difficult hurdle for her to overcome: Elizabeth Warren may be too much of a senator.” @senwarren @politico #politicaltalk #politics

She is languishing in fifth place in a spate of polls of Democratic primary voters; Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke are dominating the money race; and her detailed and thoughtful position papers on health care, monopolies, and tax policy threaten to define her as the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy Winner of 2020—the candidate who wins a prize from policy wonks and civic-minded pundits, but who never wins the nomination.
There’s no single answer for Warren’s slow start. You could blame the self-inflicted wound of the DNA test, and the media’s fascination with the Bright Shiny Object of Betomania. Perhaps it’s because she’s a woman in an era when misogyny remains all too rife. Maybe, after years in the spotlight, she feels too much like yesterday’s news. But there might be a more difficult hurdle for her to overcome: Elizabeth Warren may be too much of a senator.” @senwarren @politico #politicaltalk #politics

Charles Kushner pens op-ed in defense of son Jared: “The father of Jared Kushner, a senior adviser and son-in-law to President Donald Trump, defended his son and the family’s real estate business in an op-ed in The Washington Post, pushing back against scrutiny the younger Kushner has come under since joining the Trump administration.
“Though I am a private person and prefer to keep the details of my family’s business as private as possible, I want to set the record straight,” wrote Charles Kushner, the founder of Kushner Companies, in an editorial published late Wednesday.” @politico #politicaltalk #politics

Blue states threaten to drop family planning program over Trump abortion rule: “Some Democratic states plan to withdraw from the main federal family planning program if they can’t win a court challenge to stop the Trump administration from steering the money away from health providers who offer abortions or make abortion referrals.
Oregon and Washington already have said they would opt out of the Title X program, which steers $286.5 million for birth control and reproductive health services for low-income women, if the new rules take effect in early May. Maryland could soon join them, and other states may follow. They say the new restrictions would undermine medical care for patients, and, in some cases, violate state laws.
Of the 23 states, including the District of Columbia, suing over the policy changes, only four told POLITICO they plan to stay in the program, citing concerns about giving up those federal dollars even with strings attached.” @plannedparenthood @politico #politicaltalk #politics

President Obama visits Havana, March 20, 2016: “When Air Force One landed in Havana on this day in 2016, President Barack Obama became the first U.S. president to visit Cuba since Calvin Coolidge in 1928 and the first one since an insurgency led by Fidel Castro toppled a pro-American regime in 1959.
After arriving for what he called “a historic visit,” Obama used a Cuban phrase meaning “what’s up?” when he tweeted: “¿Que bolá Cuba? Just touched down here, looking forward to meeting and hearing directly from the Cuban people.” @barackobama @politico #politicaltalk #politics

Trump administration withholds report justifying 'shock' auto tariffs: “A confidential government report has provided President Donald Trump with a legal rationale to impose heavy new tariffs on foreign cars as soon as this spring, a prospect fiercely opposed by White House officials and congressional Republicans alarmed by its enormous economic and political stakes.
The Commerce Department submitted the report to the White House in mid-February, triggering a 90-day period for Trump to decide whether to impose tariffs, which could reach as high as 25 percent, on imported autos. It concluded that Trump could justify the tariffs on national security grounds and offered a range of options in response — putting the decision in the president’s hands, four people familiar with its conclusions told POLITICO.” @politico

Meet the Democrat who plans to unite the party after 2020 turns ugly: “Brian Schatz is no household name. But he's already positioning himself as an influential figure in the 2020 presidential race — someone who can unite the party around a shared agenda even if the primary inevitably turns ugly.
Schatz, the senior senator from Hawaii, says he is eager to help Democrats avoid “that whole stupid, unproductive, toxic debate” of 2016, when voters were seemingly forced to choose between Bernie Sanders’ bold-but-vague proposals and Hillary Clinton’s detailed-but-modest legislative prescriptions.” @brianschatz @politico #politics #politicaltalk
