California Road Charge Pilot Program

Exploring an Option for Replacing California's Gas Tax- About the Pilot Program. The California Road Charge Pilot Program is a multi-year endeavor that, at its core, strives to engage the public in order to gain input and feedback. Pilot volunteers will be able to choose one of the five mileage reporting methods California will be testing. Please note: Volunteers will not pay any out-of-pocket costs. No money will be exchanged during the pilot. Above all, you get to be a driver, not just a passenger, and contribute to fixing California… one mile at a time. How You Can Participate.. What Is Road Charge? Road charging means drivers pay to help maintain the roads based on the distance they travel or a period of time they use the roads, rather than the amount of gasoline they consume. Why Are We Studying Road Charge?

BEXALERT!: US Supercarrier Went Off Course Because White House, Pentagon Miscommunicated

The botched cruise missile strike in Syria and now this. Something funny is going on.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A US supercarrier deployed by President Donald Trump to deter North Korea did not reach the Sea of Japan because White House and Department of Defense officials failed to communicate effectively, media reported.

U.S. aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson arrives for an annual joint military exercise called Foal Eagle between South Korea and U.S, at the port of Busan, South Korea, March 15, 2017.

Top 10 Reasons Why the Latest Syria "Official Narrative" Is Pure Nonsense! (Video)

Despite the US government and its allies definitively saying that Assad was behind the Syrian chemical gas attack, anyone with half a brain can see that something is off. The main rationale of course, being the lack of motive, which is countered by the reasoning that Assad was ‘testing the waters’ to see what he could get away with once he retook all of Syria. But that’s far from the only reason people are doubting the official narrative.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the comprehensive list of reasons that should make you give the official narrative a second look. Why weren’t the rescue workers at the site wearing protective gear? The timing between the gas attack and the US missile response also does not appear to give sufficient time for a comprehensive investigation to occur. Why do the mainstream media keep blindly insisting that Assad was behind it? Why aren’t they asking these questions?'

Why Every American Should Care About the Case Against Cliven Bundy (Video)

The news cycle right now is dominated by Syria, North Korea, and the Russians (of course). Yet no liberty loving American should forget about the case against Cliven Bundy, who in 2014 led a standoff against the Bureau of Land Management over grazing fees. While this sounds very minor compared to the headline news currently, the implications are far reaching and affect every US citizen.

In the following video, Right Wing News takes a second look at the Cliven Bundy case, and points out facts that were not highlighted or were distorted by the mainstream media. Did you know that Cliven Bundy paid his grazing fees for years until the government unilaterally altered the contracts, refused negotiations, and refused to accept payment unless Cliven signed the new contract? And that Cliven still tried to do the right thing by paying his fees to the County instead? The video below explains exactly why you, and all Americans, should be paying close attention to this case.

Until US military side with ‘We the People’ & US Constitution rather than lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression for .01% rogue state empire, America will NEVER be great

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“Without military support, Americans are lost. From strategic necessity, I will say nothing of those evolving events. I can say this: outside of divine intervention, ordinary Americans must build a demand to arrest .01% criminal leaders for treason, Wars of Aggression, Crimes Against Humanity, destruction of the Bill of Rights, looting led by central banking, political assassinations that include President Kennedy and Martin King, and official lying with complicit media.

These crimes are the opposite of the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution.

The US has devolved into a viciously rogue state.

There exists no argument against those facts except from the treasonous who only have bullshit in place of reason. As God watches over us, that truth will be made clear.” ~ “interview” with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams, 2016

Karmic Disaster: The Debt Comes Due

Hindu scriptures teach that anyone who kills or causes harm to other sentient beings is in for a big dose of Bad Karma as a result. The shit can hit the fan in this lifetime or in some future reincarnation, but it will happen. Not that I personally subscribe to Hinduism or any other religion, but I do believe that there’s a large dose of merit in their world view. A lot can be said for lifestyles which involve veganism and peaceful coexistence with our fellow beings. Stray from the path, commit the crime, and you’ll eventually do the time. Like the Hindus, we’ll define “sentient beings” as including (most) humans, all other creatures with eyes and mothers, and most importantly Mother Earth herself; for she’s borne the brunt of harm caused by her thoughtless, careless, greedy human children.

Washington Tries to Hide Its “Failure” in Mosul

For the past months, Washington has faced the urgent need to distract the world’s attention from its devastating failure in Mosul in order to hide the huge number of casualties among the local population. Perhaps, this became one of the main reasons for carrying out a new full-scale campaign to topple and discredit Bashar Assad.

However, every effort that is made by the U.S. to hide its failures, in fact, is futile. The ‘counter-terrorist’ operation in the Iraqi Mosul has been going on for more than 6 months. According to the Pentagon, the number of losses among the coalition forces has already reached at least 9,000 military personnel and 1,600 units of military equipment. Of course, we must admit that the overwhelming majority of casualties are among the Iraqi military. But we should not forget that the Iraqi soldiers are led by generals of the international coalition. Thus, all the losses during the assault of Mosul are the result of U.S. direct command.

According to SCMP, an accidental inquiry from an investor exposed the fact that the WMPs sold by a Minsheng branch didn’t even exist. When shocked investors rushed to the bank, they found the head of the branch had been taken into police custody and the supposed due payment date had passed.

Contrary to the image of a dangerous gun nut put out in the media in an effort to justify the burning of the church, official BATF records prove that David Koresch was rather harmless, so much so that the BATF agents invited him to go shooting with them just 9 days before they raided the church. Koresch supplied the ammunition. The BATF agents allowed Koresch to try out their weapons.

FLASHBACK - The Oklahoma City Bombing - Were there additional explosive charges and additional bombers?

There are many problems with the official story of the bombing. Let's start with McVeigh's whereabouts on April 17.

McVeigh had been filmed by a security camera at a nearby McDonald's 24 minutes before the time stamped on the truck rental agreement, wearing clothes that did not match either of the men seen at Elliott's.
There is no plausible explanation of how he traveled the mile and a quarter from McDonald's to the rental agency, carless and alone as he claims, without getting soaked in the rain.

The three people interviewed agreed John Does 1 and 2 were dry. According to Stephen Jones, who has seen the interview transcripts, it took 44 days for the FBI to convince the car rental agency owner that John Doe 1 was Timothy McVeigh. And in the end they did not dare put him on the witness stand, for fear of what might happen under cross-examination.

North Korea Is a Large Opium Producer Just Like Afghanistan — But That’s None of Your Business

Prior to the U.S. invasion and occupation that sent production and cultivation skyrocketing 35-fold in just the first 13 years, the Taliban had successfully decimated the opium poppy crop in Afghanistan.

Nearly 16 years later, Afghanistan’s lucrative drug trafficking business is still roaring along unhindered, and — with U.S. troops literally guarding the occupied nation’s 90-percent share of the world’s opium supply — potential competitors rightly seemed scarce.

That is, until North Korea just said ‘no’ to the Drug War.

“In its early stage, the Kim Jong-un regime declared a war against drugs, getting rid of poppy fields,” Kang Cheol-hwan, president of the defector organization, North Korea Strategy Center, told Yonhap News Agency last month. “But now they are cultivating them again.”

NYPD says it is now investigating the Hudson River death of a pioneering African American judge as 'suspicious' even though she was initially thought to have committed suicide

Authorities in New York investigating the case of a trailblazing New York state judge whose body was found floating in the Hudson River last week are treating the death as suspicious.

The body of State Court of Appeals Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam was retrieved fully clothed from the Hudson by the NYPD harbor unit on Wednesday - one day after her husband of less than a year reported her missing.

Initially, Abdus-Salaam was thought to have taken her own life after her brother and mother both committed suicide around Easter two years apart from each other, according to police.

Now the NYPD says that it believes the case to be 'suspicious,' according to the New York Post.
