Hey Ford, this does NOT give me reason to trust you

Because of the GPS units installed in Ford vehicles, Ford knows when its drivers are speeding, and where they are while they're doing it.

Farley was trying to describe how much data Ford has on its customers, and illustrate the fact that the company uses very little of it in order to avoid raising privacy concerns: "We know everyone who breaks the law, we know when you're doing it. We have GPS in your car, so we know what you're doing. By the way, we don't supply that data to anyone," he told attendees.
And we're supposed to believe that why?

Why We Don't See You As Officer Friendly Anymore(Reasons #372 and 373):
A case of alleged police brutality dating back to 2009 is being investigated and three officers are on paid leave in New Hampshire after a video of an incident seems to have resurfaced this week.

Michael Bergeron, 19 years old at the time of the incident, said he has chipped teeth and a permanent lump on the back of his head as a result of the treatment by Seabrook police officers.
A California father of four died after being beaten by police outside of a Bakersfield hospital, while witnesses say he begged for his life. A couple witnesses filmed the gruesome scene, but say they were later forced to give their cellphones to authorities and have yet to receive their devices back.
“We had stopped by Taco Bell to get something to eat, and we were eating and at about 3 a.m. two detectives showed up, barged in without my permission and demanded to see my boyfriend for his phone,” Melissa said.
She said she and her boyfriend were essentially kept captive inside their own home until they released their phones.

As was reported earlier, the boyfriend eventually gave up his phone without a search warrant being presented because he had to be at work at 8 a.m. and didn’t want to be late, she said.

Bloomberg & Co. are corrupt blood-dancers; we already knew that.  But nice to have it in writing.
A rush to maximize political benefit from the Newtown school shooting, bickering over celebrity sponsors and snarky commentary on some of the nation’s most prominent politicians are among the things to emerge from communications between former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s New York City Hall staff and executives at the Bloomberg-founded group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG).
1. Little Separation Between City Hall and Political Nonprofit: ‘Must Have Some Metrics’
New York City Hall employees, paid by the city’s taxpayers, spent significant time intertwined with a national group that had nothing to do with gun policy or any other policy in the New York City limits.

Among the prominent city hall staffers involved in seemingly every minutia of the anti-gun group was John Feinblatt, the chief adviser to Mayor Bloomberg for policy and strategic planning and the criminal justice coordinator. The bulk of e-mails were between Feinblatt and Mark Glaze, the director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
But in numerous e-mails, various other city hall officials were cc’d.
Gee, isn't using public employees for personal reasons kind of illegal?

The oil ticks have a real problem with our fracking; makes me wonder if that's the big reason Obama wants to make it as difficult as possible.

Most transparent administration ever! my ass.
President Barack Obama’s deputies have picked one of his political donors to investigate the IRS’ attack on independent political groups during the 2012 election, according to California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House investigations committee.
“We request you immediately remove Ms. [Barbara] Bosserman from the ongoing investigation,” said a Jan. 8 letter from Issa to Attorney General Eric Holder.

The secret selection of Barbara Bosserman, a lawyer in the Department of Justice’s civil rights division, was revealed by a committee investigation after the DOJ stonewalled the legislators.

I wonder if this was connected with Gunwalker, or a separate thing?
U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents and U.S Attorneys held secret meetings with drug trafficking organizations, especially the Sinaloa cartel, on Mexican soil, revealed Mexico-based newspaper El Universal.

The DEA and the U.S. Attorney's office are both components of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

Official and court documents from the U.S and Mexican governments were cited as the source in the Jan. 6 news report. 
And sounds just like Gunwalker,
El Universal alleges that the DEA operations were carried out without the knowledge of the Mexican government.
