Most people aren’t aware that Toyota-Scion had been selling a mini-car since Sept. 2011. How does it differ from the SmartCar? The iQ’s wheelbase is 78.7 inches. The SmartCar is 73.5. iQ’s engine size is 1.3 L, 4 cyl., Smart – 3 cyl. 1.0 L. iQ horsepower – 94, torque 89. Smart hp – 90, 99 torque. (Roughly the same, but the iQ feels like your driving a normal car.)
The iQ is a three door hatchback. Storage space is nearly non-existent, unless you lay the back seats forward and down. There’s no glove compartment.
Why do I recommend it? The iQ excels. The electric-powered steering is as good as any car I’ve driven. The large windows give you amazing viewing space. Transmission is a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission.) It shifts much better than the lurching SmartCar. Also, has a sport mode. There’s very little torque, but that’s not what this car is about.
iQ has a distinctive wedge shape – much better looking than the “Smart”. Interior is functional, similar to the Toyota Yaris. Estimated fuel economy is 36/37 mpg.
Why did it fail? The iQ didn’t have meet its quota and was dissolved from North America in January 2015. Here are some rare 2016 prototypes (Japan only.)
The iQ’s price depends on the upgrades, new $15,995 – $18,605. All in all, this was a missed opportunity by the public who didn’t give the iQ a fair chance. Sorry to see it go.
The Supreme Court cannot create law – it can only enforce it. There is no nationwide law allowing gay marriage. How do you defend a law that doesn’t exist? The “Defense of Marriage Act” declares that marriage exists between a man and a woman only.
The MSM would have you believe that everybody’s turning queer and that if you don’t like it, you’re an intolerant bigot. Like it or not, transgenderism is not the human ideal, even if Michelle Obama is one of them.
Mrs. Obama on the “Ellen” show
The former 10,000 Syrian refugee amount has expanded steadily, now topping 100,000 per year and still climbing. Obama’s State Dept. cannot explain how these Muslim immigrants will assimilate. They don’t speak English. Many are illiterate. Some are terrorists.
Hillary Clinton’s interview with Lena Dunham.
Entirely scripted and incredibly phony, Ms. Dunham asks the great Satan Hillary if she’s a feminist. ARE YOU STUPID?!!
Sept. 22. HRC announces she will not okay the Keystone pipeline (if elected) because of “climate change”. The real reason: Hillary is in the back pockets of Arab-oil interests who are the number one contributors to her campaign. Also, a sad attempt to upstage the Pope.
MSM’s reaction to the Pope. Leftist atheists suddenly turn into Catholics referring to the Pontiff as “His Holiness, Our Father and like God.” This, from people who never went to church in their life.
MSM’s reaction to Dr. Ben Carson.
Rep. Pres. candidate Dr. Ben Carson is asked if a Muslim should ever be President. He answers, “No.” Fake because the MSM explodes whenever their doctrine is violated. Besides, we already have a Muslim president.
An anonymous man asks candidate Trump a loaded question about Muslims. Why might it be fake? A. Man identifies all Muslims as bad and dangerous. (Including Obama.) B. Man asks Trump, “How do we get rid of them?” C. He brings up the “birther” controversy. D. His name is hopelessly garbled by the announcer. The MSM acts in moral outrage blaming Trump for not “defending Obama”.
Questions are arising about the shooting deaths of Alison Parker and Adam Ward shown on live TV on August 26.
Notice the strange behavior of Parker’s father, who does not appear to be grieving and continually advocates for gun control. Turns out, he’s a former actor.
Miss Parker’s alleged fiancé-boyfriend Chris Hurst, does some really bad acting for the cameras – rambling on about their “white-hot” love affair. His only proof are some innocuous, staged-looking snapshots. That’s no real proof of anything, except a friendship. And why did he say, “We didn’t share this publically”?
Daniel Wulz and Alison Parker
Alison with her real boyfriend Daniel Wulz.
The MSM is caught lying again, when they report Miss Parker running into a “dead-end” at the end of an outdoor corridor. In the shooter’s cellphone video, you can see a glass door in the background. Behind the door is a lamp shining with a figure of a man standing by it. A door is not a dead end. Where exactly was she shot?
Vester Flanagan aka Bryce Williams fires point blank at Parker. Where’s the blood? How could he miss? He didn’t miss shooting the cameraman, who mysteriously doesn’t make a sound.
It’s no secret the MSM wants gun control, i.e., a gun-ban. The question is: Would they stage this shooting for the worldwide attention it received?
What would be the biggest false flag of them all? There’s a lot of conjecture out there that the New World Order is planning a staged event soon. Who advocates the most for gun control? Barack Obama. Therefore, let’s assume, hypothetically, this future false flag assassination attempt on BHO occurs. Won’t the gun control fanatics have what they want? With nationwide riots, won’t the government demand everyone to turn in their firearms? Who can argue this?
“We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. We know our current President is one. We know he’s not even an American. We have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That’s my question: When can we get rid of them?” Sept. 17, 2015, Rochester, N.H. (Question from unidentified man)
The MSM (esp. MSNBC, CNN) officially freaked-out Thursday when Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump didn’t “correct” a man who made claims that Barack Obama is a foreign-born Muslim. Why? What is there to correct?
Let me ask those reading: If Obama is a U.S. citizen, why did he wait until 2011 to release his birth certificate? Wouldn’t it be fair to say, as President, he would have special access to gov’t agencies that could get him whatever he wanted? Would it be so hard to have certain people in the right places?
Obama’s mother Stanley Ann Dunham and the woman who released Obama’s birth certificate, Loretta Fuddy, close personal friends.
As for BHO’s religion, it’s a well known fact that Obama was a Muslim. His friends and family describe him as a “devout Muslim” who could recite the Koran in Arabic. Obama’s relatives are Muslim. Obama was raised in a Muslim country, Indonesia. He admits this saying: “I am one of you.”
Is it suspicious that Obama suddenly converted to Christianity when he decided to enter politics? Is it strange that Obama seems at best, a half-hearted Christian, whose face glows whenever he speaks about Islam? Or is he just a fake?
Obama said, “America can never be at war with Islam” because this country has many practicing Muslims. “How can webe at war with ourselves?” Isn’t that an open admission?
2008. Obama said, inadvertently, “John McCain has never questioned my Muslim faith.” (Then, changed it to “Christian faith.”) Why would he question it?
2008. Sen. McCain is told by an audience member that Obama is “an Arab.” McCain corrects her by saying Obama is “a decent man that I just have a disagreement with on fundamental issues.” The MSM was thrilled… “Here we have McCain endorsing our candidate!”
2015. The MSM wants Trump to do the same stupid thing. The MSM loves Republican losers. They poo-poo the idea of “Muslim training camps in the U.S.” – even though it’s been proven. ISIS is here in all fifty states. What do they think they’re here for? A pajama party?
To a lesser degree, Trump’s new problem is Carly Fiorina, who he foolishly insulted (off the record) to a left-wing rock ‘n roll tabloid, Rolling Stone. Fiorina, of course, leapt on this in the last debate, saying, “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.” (Her Hillary Clinton moment.)
The truth is, Ms. Fiorina is standing where Gov. Sarah Palin should be. Carly F. is a failed businesswoman, laying off 30,000 from Hewlitt-Packard and finally be fired after a merger with Compaq, nearly ruining the company. She is also a failed candidate for the California Senate, losing big to Barbara Boxer.
Courtesy of Pres. Barack Obama, a wave of Muslim extremist “immigrants” will be infiltrating 190 U.S. cities by next year, if not sooner. Under the guise of “humanitarian relief”, our foreign-born Muslim president is unleashing the enemy within, with the cooperation of Congress.
I ask, what does it take for the American people to stand up and do something in order to stop this fraudulent Presidential-dictator? Every day this sub-human occupies the White House, he brings us closer to destruction.
While many hope and say BHO will only be in office for another year or so, I say, what kind of country will we be by then?
The leftist mainstream media (those who helped put this viper in power), still maintain that nothing is wrong or unusual. Presidents come, presidents go.
Citizens, Obama is the Hitler of our time. He has granted Iran the ability to build a nuclear bomb. Iran, the number one sponsor of Islamic terrorism. Now, he is bringing those bloodthirsty, rapist, murderers to our shores – smiling all the way.
Democrats stubbornly refuse to admit their hero was a mistake from the very beginning. They hang on to the idea that it’s the Republicans – those mean, ‘ol, white-bread, suburban squares – who never gave our first “African-American” president a chance. That mantra worked in 2008 and 2012. Now, it has worn paper thin to the point of absurdity. What does Obama have to do prove who he really is? Raise the ISIS flag over the White House? Declare war on the Tea Party? Refuse to leave on January 20, 2017?
I understand that people are busy with their daily lives. However, the time has come where we must find time to put a halt to an out-of-control Muslim madman committed to “fundamentally transforming” us.
Everyone knows what happened on 9/11, but do you know what was meant to happen? And why?
All four hijacked passenger planes were meant to strike simultaneously.
World Trade Center 1 – North Tower (8:46 a.m.) Struck by AA Flight 11.
World Trade Center 2 – South Tower (9:03 a.m.) Struck by UA Flight 175.
Pentagon – 9:37 a.m. Struck by AA Flight 77.
WTC-2 – South Tower collapses. (9:50 a.m.)
U.A. Flight 93 crashes in Shanksville, PN at 10:03 a.m. (Time is in dispute, some say 10:06 a.m. Three minutes of the recording are reportedly missing from the black box.)
WTC-1 North Tower collapses – (10:29 a.m.)
WTC-7 – Bldg. 7 collapses at 5:21 p.m.
Official cause: scattered fires and falling debris. Leaseholder Larry Silverstein admits he told firefighters to “Pull it,” meaning to bring it down. Therefore, if WTC-7 was imploded, where did the firefighters find the time to carefully place the explosives needed to precisely bring it down “pancake-style”? And if it was imploded, does this add credence to the claims of 9/11 Truthers that the twin Towers were imploded?
Flight 93. Because UA93 was delayed, passengers learned on their phones that the Twin Towers had been attacked. Their plane was on a suicide mission. The planners of 9/11 (whether you believe it was al-Qaeda, the CIA or the NWO) would never believe what would happen on United Flight 93. The passengers fought back. The U.S. government failed them miserably on that fateful morning and all they had was each other. The fourth plane crashed twenty minutes flying time outside Washington, D.C. in a deserted field, burying itself completely. On the flight’s recorder, passengers can be heard screaming and crashing into the cockpit door. “Do it or we’ll die!” The last thing heard was “Allah ackbar! Allah ackbar!” as the Muslim pilot flipped the jet over, sending it into a nosedive. What if Flight 93 had crashed into the Capital? What if Congress had been inside? Wouldn’t that have left the Bush Administration alone to run the gov’t?
Flight 93 crash site
The Bush Administration
While all this was happening, Pres. George W. Bush was at Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, FL classroom, listening to children recite from a book titled “My Pet Goat”. At 9:05 a.m., Chief of Staff Andrew Card whispered to the President: “A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack.”
Pres. Bush and Andrew Card
Bush maintains that he was trying to “maintain calm” in a bad situation, so as not to “frighten the children.” Opponents said the President simply did not know what to do.
Reality. Pres. Bush, in no way, wanted to return to Wash, D.C. while suicide planes were in the air, and at the time, how did he know it? The Pentagon would not be hit for another half-hour. (Flight 77 – 9:37 a.m.)
You might say, “Logically, he knew there could a number of planes hijacked.” Agreed, but how did Bush know a plane wasn’t sent after him ready to smash into the school? How did he and the Secret Service know the President was safe and sound where he was? Why was VP Dick Cheney rushed into an underground bunker and not the President?
At 9:30 a.m., Pres. Bush spoke in part by saying, “I have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families and to conduct a full-scale investigation to hunt down and find those folks who committed this act. Terrorism against our nation will not stand.”
Seven minutes later, Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon.
Pres. Bush agreed not to return to the White House (at the urging of Cheney) leaving on Air Force One at 9:54 a.m. to an Air Force base. Cheney, acting as Commander-in-Chief, ordered any hijacked aircraft to be shot down.
Was Flight 93 shot down?
Another theory: Flight 93 was shot down just before the passengers took control of the plane. The last three minutes of the black box recording is blank, except for a whooshing sound. Seismologists report that UA93 crashed at 10:06, not 10:03. What happened during those last three minutes?
Sec’t of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and VP Dick Cheney
10:39 a.m. – Conference call between VP Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (transcript reads in part.)
Cheney – There’s been at least three instances here, where we’ve had reports of aircraft approaching Washington. A couple were confirmed hijack. [Flights 77 and 93.] And pursuant to the President’s instructions, I gave authorization for them to be taken out.
Rumsfeld – So, we’ve got a couple of aircraft up there that have there instructions at this present time? [Rumsfeld is referring to U.S. fighter jets.]
Cheney – That is correct. And it is my understanding they’ve already taken a couple of aircraft out.
Rumsfeld – We’re told that we can’t confirm that. Our aircraft is down, but we don’t have a pilot report that did it.
Rumsfeld admits he knows an aircraft is down. Flight 93. Cheney believes it has been shot down. Rumsfeld corrects him. Why? It was not know at this time of the passengers revolt against the hijackers. Why would Rumsfeld correct the VP?
Could 9/11 have been prevented?
At the 9/11 Commission hearings, then-National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice spoke for the President, admitting there had been presidential briefings – warnings of an imminent attack by al-Qaeda using hijacked planes, but they didn’t know when or where. (In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed by Muslim terrorists.) Note: Gov’t officials were warned not to fly on any commercial aircraft that summer. Writer and political commentator Barbara Olson warned of the threat of bin Laden in her final book “The Final Days”. Mrs. Olson was killed on Flight 77.
Zacharias Moussaoui, known as the twentieth hijacker, was arrested on Aug. 16, 2001, twenty-six days before 9/11. Charge: Immigration violations. Moussaoui intended to be one of the muscle hijackers. The FBI confiscated incriminating evidence, most notably a laptop computer, which was never examined because of Moussaoui’s rights. Eventually, he was found guilty of participating in the 9/11 conspiracy and sentenced to life in prison.
Osama bin Laden had been trying to start a war with the USA for a decade.
Al/Qaeda-Bin Laden timeline
1990 – Iraq invades Kuwait. Osama bin Laden and his ragtag band of mujahedeen want to expel Iraq, but Saudi Arabia chooses the U.S. military instead. OBL is outraged over, “The American infidels defiling sacred ground,”
1993 – Somalia. Al-Qaeda, aided by Somali warlords, bombs a hotel where the U.S. military are staying and shoots down two BlackHawk helicopters. Pres. Clinton orders our forces to retreat. OBL labels Americans “Cowards that will be easy to defeat.”
1993 – The World Trade Center is bombed. The Clinton administration decides that it’s not an act of war. It is “criminal activity”.
1995 – Project Bojinka. Al-Qaeda plans to blow up a dozen American passenger planes and assassinate the Pope and Pres. Clinton. The plot ends when bomb-makers are discovered in the Philippines, along with a laptop computer detailing their plan.
1995 – The Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City is bombed by Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Nichols has links to Muslim-extremist groups in the Philippines. The media soon forgets about an “Arab-looking John Doe #2 suspect” who was never captured.
1998 – Osama bin Laden issues a fatwa (religious decree) on America and its allies. His order is co-signed by Islamic extremists in Egypt, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kashmir and Afghanistan. OBL orders that all Muslims must fight and kill Americans, whether they be civilian or military, in all countries.
1998 – American embassies are bombed in Tanzania and Kenya. Hundreds are killed, thousands injured.
1999 – An al-Qaeda suspect is arrested with plans on bombing LAX airport.
2000 – Yemen. A small boat loaded with explosives blows a hole in the U.S.S. Cole killing seventeen sailors and causing $250,000,000 damage.
2001 – 9/11.
With 9/11, Bin Laden’s plan was to run America into bankruptcy, as the U.S. spent billions, if not trillions, on Bush’s War on Terror. With the death of Bin Laden, I believe we are in a second phase, that is, a country that is a “Sharia-compliant state.” There is one theory I agree with; that Barack Obama is an agent for Islam. His sudden rise to power occurred through untold amount of money funneled in from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. Their goal: place a Muslim in the White House.
The skyscraper built to replace the WTC was originally called the “Freedom Tower”. The name was changed to the “One World Trade Center” because the world “freedom” offended some in the Muslim community. The name “One World” fits in well with the idea of a one-world totalitarian government prepared for the future.
