Pay to drive: Oregon to tax motorists for using public roads

© alternativeconsumer
In order to replace revenue being lost due to more fuel efficient cars on American roads, the state of Oregon is set to launch a pay-per-mile tax program that will charge motorists for their use of public roads.

Starting on July 1, Oregon will allow 5,000 residents to voluntarily sign up to be taxed per-mile rather than pay the gas tax at the pumps. Volunteers will be charged 1.5 cents every mile traveled on taxpayer-provided roads, reports AP News.

From AP News:
The current program, called OreGo, will be the largest yet and will be open to all car types. Of these, no more than 1,500 participating vehicles can get less than 17 miles per gallon, and no more than 1,500 must get at least 17 miles per gallon and less than 22 miles per gallon.
Volunteers will still be paying the fuel tax if they stop for gas. But at the end of the month, depending on the type of car they drive, they will receive either a credit or a bill for the difference in gas taxes paid at the pump.
Private vendors will provide drivers with small digital devices to track miles; other services will also be offered. Volunteers can opt out of the program at any time, and they'll get a refund for miles driven on private property and out of state.

Comment: Soon, there will be no aspect of our lives that is not monitored or taxed.

FBI agents are going into US high schools to warn students that ISIS may try to recruit them

The FBI has paid a visit to a New Jersey high school, warning students about the online recruitment tactics of ISIS. The agency told the teens not to believe the terror group's propaganda, as it is trawling the internet to recruit vulnerable young people.

The Tuesday event, held at Bergen Arts and Science Charter School in Hackensack, NJ, was led by a senior FBI intelligence analyst who did not want to be named for security reasons.

During the talk, he told students that Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) was using social media and glossy magazines to train terrorists and make its mission seem appealing.

One of the tactics mentioned was a sophisticated recruitment video, aimed at luring young people into joining the terror group.

Comment: The sick and twisted part of it is that the FBI agents visiting the schools ARE the recruiters:

The pathology of the rich white family

Portraits of former Presidents George W. Bush, left, and George H.W. Bush, his father, part of the show “The Art of Leadership: A President’s Diplomacy.” The exhibit of portraits of world leaders by the younger Bush are on display at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas and runs through June 3.
The pathology of the rich white family is the most dangerous pathology in America. The rich white family is cursed with too much money and privilege. It is devoid of empathy, the result of lifetimes of entitlement. It has little sense of loyalty and lacks the capacity for self-sacrifice. Its definition of friendship is reduced to "What can you do for me?" It is possessed by an insatiable lust to increase its fortunes and power. It believes that wealth and privilege confer to it a superior intelligence and virtue. It is infused with an unchecked hedonism and narcissism. And because of all this, it interprets reality through a lens of self-adulation and greed that renders it delusional. The rich white family is a menace. The pathologies of the poor, when set against the pathologies of rich white people, are like a candle set beside the sun.

There are no shortages of acolytes and propagandists for rich white families. They dominate our airwaves. They blame poverty, societal breakdown, urban violence, drug use, domestic abuse and crime on the pathology of poor black families—not that they know any. They argue that poor black families disintegrate because of some inherent defect—here you can read between the lines that white people are better than black people—a defect that these poor families need to fix.

Comment: ...and the world.

It's stunning to think that blacks and other minorities (and even whites for that matter) in the U.S. are still subject to a type of slavery. Only now the yoke of subjugation has gone 'underground,' is more covert, and even more dangerous for the fact that it is rarely recognized for what it is. And what is it? Nothing less than the virus of psychopathic thinking that would seek to fulfil its own desires at the catastrophic expense of others' life force, souls, and happiness.

For a look at how one single rich white family - the Bushes - have succeeded in only a few of their many spheres of criminal activity, see Professor Michel Chossudovsky's new article: Jeb Bush, the Mexican Drug Cartel and 'Free Trade': The Bush Family and Organized Crime

Color Revolution in Amerika? Ferguson activists were paid to protest with Soros money

Do Black lives matter to someone for whom no lives matter?
Protesters paid by groups funded by leftist billionaire George Soros

A list released after a group of #BlackLivesMatter activists publicly protested not being paid to protest has revealed that the group Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) has paid at least 80 people to protest in Ferguson, Missouri and other hotspots around the country.

This startling information was revealed after activists held a protest on May 14th at the offices of MORE to openly complain about not being paid the money they were promised.

The blog Weasel Zippers took screenshots of tweets from activists at the sit in protest as well as from those supporting their demand for money.

Comment: What could be more cynical, more devious, and more psychopathic than riding on the coattails and seeking to influence legitimate moral grievances, societal issues and social movements as George Soros has? But the word is spreading. And when even more catch on to his works, he'd better watch out - because in many ways what he does is far worse than the oppressing forces inflicting the injurious acts to begin with.

Iraq war veteran dies of 'sickle cell crisis' in El Paso, Texas jail after being mauled by riot guards

© RT/Still from youtube video
In 2012, active-duty soldier James Brown reported to the El Paso County Jail to serve a two-day DWI sentence. New video of his time in custody has revealed aggressive force being used on him by officers, who ignored his repeated pleas for breath.

KFOX14 obtained video recorded during Sergeant James Brown's custody, which finally sheds some light on a death the county sheriff's department claims was caused by a "pre-existing medical condition."

Brown, 26, was an active-duty soldier at Fort Bliss in Texas who has served two tours of combat duty in Iraq. He had no previous criminal record.

When he self-reported to the El Paso County Jail in July 2012 to serve a short sentence for driving while intoxicated, he said in writing that he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, according to jail records.

Shortly after checking in, he spoke by phone to his mother, Dinette Robinson-Scott.

"He said they're trying to make me stay seven days instead of two days, so i just want to pay the court fine and get out of here," she told KFOX14. Robinson-Scott said she sent the money the next morning.

Yet at some point overnight Brown had an apparent episode that caused him to start bleeding. When he stopped communicating with the jail guard outside his cell, a team of officers in riot gear were sent in. They confronted Brown and pinned him to the ground.

Brown can be heard in the video repeatedly stating that he could not breathe. He claimed he was choking on his own blood. His health appears to wane as the video goes on. He pleaded with the guards to remove a spit guard that restricted his breathing. He begged for water and was given only a small amount. He was at some point laid out on the floor of his cell with shallow breathing and no signs of responsiveness. His family's attorney say the jail didn't called for an ambulance during this period.

Comment: In the name of law and order, these goons do far more damage to citizens than criminals or 'terrorists' ever could. A cold, hard snapshot of what America is today. The level of unaccountability is just staggering and eerily similar to Nazi, Germany.

Pregnant bystander: Officer punched me in stomach, called me "black bitch"

Nicola Robinson
An eight months pregnant Chicago woman says an unidentified city police officer punched her in the stomach after she laughed at him for letting a suspect get away.

Nicola Robinson said she was standing outside with neighbors on Friday evening when three officers ran past in pursuit of a suspected drug dealer. After the officers failed to catch the suspect, the group laughed at the officers, the woman says.

That's when Robinson says a plainclothes officer approached and then shoved her while she was holding her 1-year-old son and then punched her in the right side of her stomach.

"As I got ready to walk in my building, he punched me on my right side as hard as he [could,] Robinson said. "After he punched me, he [said,] 'You black bitch, you better be glad I didn't hit you hard enough to make you lose your fucking baby.' "

Robinson's sister claims she witnessed the attack and the racist outburst, which she said shocked the other officers.

"The other two officers who [were] with him were standing there, and they're looking like, 'What are you doing?' But I guess they didn't want to say anything," Monique Dickerson said.

Robinson said the officer changed his demeanor when she pointed out that nearby apartment buildings are equip with surveillance cameras.

"Then that's when the attitude about him started changing, and he got real quiet," Robinson said. "You could tell in his face that he knew that, 'Man I have messed up.' "

Robinson said a building manager told her surveillance video clearly shows the officer punch her but the management company did not respond to media requests for comment.

Hospital records shows that Robinson spent five hours under observation before doctors cleared her to return home.

Sham cancer charities bilked US donors for $187 mil, spent money on luxury

© Reuters/Gary Cameron
Government regulators have cracked down on four cancer charities, accusing the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Children's Cancer Fund of America, and the Breast Cancer Society of cheating donors out of $187 million.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), all 50 states, and the District of Columbia claim that the four foundations fraudulently told donors their money would help cancer patients. Instead, money from the donations overwhelmingly went into the pockets of charity operators, their families and friends, and professional fundraisers.

According to the complaint filed by authorities, the charities "operated as personal fiefdoms characterized by rampant nepotism, flagrant conflicts of interest, and excessive insider compensation, with none of the financial and governance controls that any bona fide charity would have adopted."


Swiss aid convoy delivers 300 tonnes of chemicals to clean Donetsk water

© Sputnik/ Mikhail Voskresenskiy
The water treatment chemicals - mainly aluminium sulphate — will provide 3.5 million people on both sides of the contact line with clean drinking water, according to Swiss authorities.

The convoy is allegedly the largest to have crossed the line of contact between Kiev-led forces and Donetsk militia since an armed conflict broke out in eastern Ukraine in April 2014.

"A 15-truck convoy organized by Swiss Humanitarian Aid reached the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine today. After a journey of several hours from Dnipropetrovsk through areas on both sides of the contact line, the convoy delivered approximately 300 tonnes of chemicals to the Donetsk water company," the statement, published Friday, reads.

Comment: Some good news for Ukraine for a change but too bad this is needed.


Tower block inferno claims at least 16 lives in Baku, Azerbaijan


Hundreds fled for their lives when the inferno erupted in the 16-storey apartment building today
These shocking scenes show an inferno in an apartment block today in which at least 16 people have been killed and another 64 injured.

Hundreds fled for their lives from the deadly fire which spread rapidly amid allegations of an inflammable 'low quality of plastic' on the building.

Located in Baku, the oil-rich capital of Azerbaijan, three children were among those killed in the 16 storey building, said local reports, among them a three-year-old girl.

A number were saved by firefighters, who were themselves held back by strong winds fanning the flames, while helicopters were scrambled to put out the mammoth blaze in the Caspian Sea city.

There were fears people were still missing in the carnage. The apartment block houses 408 residents in 107 flats.


The smoke from the blaze could be seen for miles after strong winds fanned the flames

Foster children in CPS custody are being enrolled in drug experiments without parental consent

Kayla and Hannah Diegel suffer from a rare form of mitochondrial disease, and were removed from the custody of their parents in 2014 for allegedly disagreeing with their doctors. Are they a subject of a drug trial?
The U.S. federal government has mandated drug research with children. The need for children to participate in drug company research is high, and the temptation to overstep parental rights to force children to participate is great. Researchers publicly admit using money and other rewards to obtain participation of children in their drug trials.

Organizations that advocate for the rights of parents to make decisions regarding their children's healthcare are finding that foster children in CPS custody are being enrolled in drug experiments without parental approval. State Child Protective Services are enrolling children in drug experiments without parental approval or court orders. However, those who conduct these drug experiments for pharmaceutical companies, and those who are charged with monitoring such research, do not see a problem with their recruitment methods.

There is a Shortage of Children for Drug Research Studies

Comment: CPS, far from being an advocate of children is a sinister organization that routinely kidnaps children, often from perfectly decent and caring parents. These children are then put into the care of those who emotionally and sexually abuse them; some are actually 'lost' within the system where they are put into a human trafficking nightmare. CPS also cooperates with the medical mafia to force children to undergo chemotherapy.
