Some days, the “news” just wears me right out – and today is one of those days. Here are some animal stories, plucked fresh from teh interwebz for your enjoyment.

Something a little different from the usual Russia!Russia!Russia! stuff, but still Russian, a biker bear!

A bizarre video has emerged of a huge brown bear sitting in the sidecar of a motorbike – and he looks like a seasoned rider.

The clip – reportedly filmed in the city of Syktyvkar in Russia’s Komi Republic – shows the giant predator happily playing the role of pillion.
Eyewitnesses were reportedly left gobsmacked at the unusual sight, with many of posting footage of it on social media.

The bear even seems positively happy in the sidecar , which is attached to the Russian-made IMZ-Ural motorcycle.

Nicholas Pasynkov, who captured some footage explained he was “driving Saturday in Syktyvkar when he spotted the large bruin calmly riding in a motorcycle sidecar that had been designed to resemble the face of a wolf.”

It was later revealed to have been a charity PR stunt by local biker club, the Polar Wolves, and a visiting circus to raise money for a children’s psychoneurological clinic in the city.

The circus reportedly provided the 22-year-old bear, which was decided to have the ideal temperament for the role as it has spent its entire life performing.

Locals were happy about it, but animal rights advocates were not. Read more about it HERE.

Escaped pigs caused mayhem on a Japanese highway after escaping a truck bound for the slaughterhouse:

It was a case of little piggies not going to the market – at least on schedule – as 19 of the 37 creatures on board executed a daring breakout, according to local media.

Traffic was halted as the defiant pigs opted for a more scenic route to the slaughter house and frolicked on the side of the highway, oblivious to the commotion they were causing motorists.   MORE

No word in the article about whether any of those pigs got a reprieve.

A horse is a horse, of course of course, and what better name for a horse, of course, than Horsey McHorseface – and it’s a winner!

The unforgettably named Horsey McHorseface had its maiden win in at a race in Cessnock, Australia, on Monday, proving that yes, even things named after a joke can actually win events.    RTR

They are calling him “The People’s Horse”, and I think that’s pretty cool.

 

I hope you enjoyed the break. Here is my dog Bellah, who thinks she is people, to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy:

There is never a dull moment in the America that has Donald J. Trump as its President. While My Donald is busy doing his job, sourpuss kooks continue to lose their collectivist minds, and even if he did nothing else for the next four years, that alone would be almost too much winning. Almost.

Here is a sampling of the schadenfreudetastic awesomeness that has been unleashed by the power of MAGA in just the past few days:

We are awash in the tears of unhinged leftists.

A moron who thought a that beheaded POTUS would be funny has broken her obnoxious self, and that right there is hilarious.

Crooked Hillary Rotten Clinton, the sore loser, is going to need a bigger basket.

The left has its own circular firing squad.

Media shark jumping with their hair on fire.

Covfefe is a thing.

Democrats are now the Party of Chicken Littles.

Build-A-Burger’s gonna get a taste of MAGA.

Congratulations, President Trump.

President Trump Puts American Jobs First:

Our government rushed to join international agreements where the United States pays the costs and bears the burdens while other countries get the benefit and pay nothing.” – President Donald J. Trump

ALREADY THE WORLD’S ENERGY LEADER: The United States had already become the leader in cutting CO2 emissions while still leading in oil & gas production.

  • In the United States, energy related carbon dioxide emissions have significantly declined since before the Paris Climate Accord was negotiated, and will continue to decline as a share of worldwide emissions, particularly when compared to other nations such as China and India.
    • The Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) 2017 Annual Energy Outlook reports that, from 2005 to 2016, energy related carbon dioxide emissions fell at an average annual rate of 1.4%.
    • Emissions are projected to continue to fall from 2016 to 2040.
    • Meanwhile, the EIA reports that emissions in the developing world are expected to double their 2005 levels by 2040.
  • According to recent U.S. Energy Information Administration, the United States remained the world’s top producer of oil and natural gas combined.
  • The United States continues to be a world leader in energy, but increased competition from countries like China demonstrates the need for policies that enable America to compete on a global scale.

HARMFUL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: The Paris Climate Accord could cost the United States economy millions of jobs and trillions of dollars in economic output over the next several decades.

  • According to an analysis by National Economic Research Associates (NERA), meeting President Obama’s commitment under the Paris Climate Accord would cost the United States nearly $3 trillion by 2040.
    • By 2040, the American economy could have 6.5 million fewer industrial sector jobs, including 3.1 million fewer manufacturing jobs.
    • Industries such as cement, iron and steel, coal, natural gas, and petroleum would be forced to cut production under President Obama’s Paris Climate Accord.

SHOULDERING THE BURDEN: Under the Paris Climate Accord, the United States would carry the burden while other countries would get the benefits.

  • Under the Obama Administration, which signed an agreement without having to deal with the economic repercussions, the United States was committed to reducing CO2 emissions by between 26 and 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.
    • Meanwhile China can continue to increase emissions for the next 13 years.
  • The United States already contributed $1 billion to a UN Green Climate Fund. This would increase to $3 billion under pledges made by the previous Administration.

INEFFECTIVE: Even if every nation fully complied with the Paris Climate Accord, it would barely impact the climate.

  • According to researchers from MIT, if every nation that signed the Paris Climate Accord met all of their commitments until the end of the century, the impact on the climate would be negligible.

PROMISE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: President Trump is fulfilling his promise to the American people to stop international agreements that disadvantage the United States.

  • May 26, 2016, then-candidate Trump:
    • “President Obama entered the United States into the Paris Climate Accords— unilaterally, and without the permission of Congress.”
    • “So foreign bureaucrats are going to be controlling what we are using and what we are doing on our land in our country. No way.”

Under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump, Americans are indeed getting put ahead of foreign moochers, and America is finally winning again, and winning bigly. The fact that America haters are going mad with the agony of their numerous defeats is really just the sweetest icing on a schadenfreudelicious cake.  Mmmm mmm mmm….
