Steeda-Tuned 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Packs 775 HP Flame out: NFL field pyrotechnics get brief ban

Steeda-Tuned 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Packs 775 HPThe $97,000 price tag might be a steal for this car!Shortly after Ford launched the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, Steeda announced plans for a tuned version of this car to pay homage to Steve McQueen: the limited-production Steve McQueen Edition. Steeda only built 300 of these tuned Mustangs for the 2019 model year, and this particular 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition, no. 31 of 300, is up for sale through Imperial Motorcars listed for $97,000. Included in that price is the base price of the 2019 Mustang Bullitt that starts at $46,595, and that doesn't event factor in any options. This car is at least equipped with the available Recaro racing bucket seats, but this was probably fully loaded from the dealership. From there, Steeda got a hold of it adding almost $41,000 worth of performance upgrades. Factor in the limited production of the Steve McQueen Edition and this car's super-low miles (just 75 miles on the odometer), and this car is a no-brainer if you're looking for a car that is destined to be an instant classic.The 2019 Mustang Bullitt already increased power output (480 hp) over the base Mustang GT (460 hp), but Steeda bumped things up even more giving the Steve McQueen Edition a base tune of 550 horsepower as well as beefed-up suspension components for improved handling. If that's not enough, there's also an optional Whipple Supercharger upgrade that squeezes 775 horses from this screaming V8, and to handle the increased power output, Steeda also fitted this car with severe-duty half shafts and a belt assembly. The seller of this car also opted for the stylish Alcantara steering wheel bringing the list of upgrades to $40,875.All-in, you're getting an incredible performance that is collectible right out of the gate.If you're interested in this rare 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition or any of the other cool and collectible cars being sold by Imperial Motorcars, click HERE for their contact info.

Lebanon's Hezbollah under rare street pressure DC floats Lamar-Mahomes as next Peyton-Brady

Lebanon's Hezbollah under rare street pressureWhen mass anti-government protests engulfed Lebanon, a taboo was broken as strongholds of the Shiite Hezbollah movement saw rare demonstrations criticising the party and revered leader Hassan Nasrallah. This shattered the myth of absolute acquiesence among Hezbollah's popular base, baffling even those who hail from the movement's strongholds. "No one ever expected that in any of these areas in south Lebanon we would hear a single word against Nasrallah," or Amal Movement leader Nabih Berri, said Sara, a 32-year-old activist who participated in protests in the southern city of Nabatiyeh.


Ravens defensive coordinator Don "Wink" Martindale is looking forward to Sunday's showdown between Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes, saying it could be sports' next great rivalry, a la Tom Brady and Peyton Manning or Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

    The Importance of Free Press in a Democracy

    Before we can understand the importance of a free press in a democracy, we need to grasp what it means to have a free press. The Cambridge Dictionary tells us that a free press allows all media outlets to express whatever opinions they desire. That means, it says, that they are enabled to “criticize the government and other organizations.” So why would that be relevant in a democracy?

    Unfair Questions or Democracy At Work ?

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” -- The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

    Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

    Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

    Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

    When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

    Living Wages Are A Global Problem

    The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

    Ukraine: Not What It Seems

    After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

    Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

    After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

    Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

    The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
