Anyone in the area of PFE Road and Hilltop Circle in Roseville between the hours of 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. can expect to see a significant amount of activity that could appear very realistic, including a simulated train accident, a simulated hazardous materials spill, many accident 'victims' made up to appear injured, and helicopters transporting people to hospitals. People are encouraged to avoid this area, if at all possible, due to the large volume of emergency vehicles responding to this area for the exercise.

Judge orders release of Bridgegate co-conspirator names | 10 May 2016 | A federal judge has ordered the release of the names of individuals who allegedly had knowledge of the scheme to shut down lanes at the George Washington Bridge before the Bridgegate scandal broke. In a ruling sought by a consortium of news organizations, including NJ Advance Media, U.S. District Judge Susan Wigenton said the public had a right to know who else may have been involved in the high profile case or subsequent cover-up involving the politically motivated shutdown of local toll lanes at the bridge that led to criminal charges against William Baroni, the former deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and Bridget Anne Kelly, former deputy chief of staff to Gov. Chris Christie. The names of those individuals, who have not been charged, have been provided under seal to defense attorneys in the case, but kept secret from the public by federal prosecutors.

Sanders Wins West Virginia Democratic Primary | 10 May 2016 | Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia Democratic primary, NBC News projects, a victory that will add yet more fuel to his argument that he should remain in the race despite badly trailing front runner Hillary Clinton in the overall delegate count. The win comes one week after Sanders prevailed in Indiana's Democratic primary and two weeks after Clinton dominated a series of contests in the northeastern United States. Democrats also voted on Tuesday in a presidential "beauty contest" in Nebraska, although the delegates from that state were all previously assigned during a March 5 caucus. In that contest, Sanders won 15 pledged delegates, compared to 10 for Clinton.

Cruz opens door to kick-starting suspended campaign --Cruz moving to lock down his delegates | 10 May 2016 | Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R), in an interview Tuesday with radio host and supporter [and Grade 'A' sociopath] Glenn Beck, opened the door just a crack to kick-starting his now-suspended campaign if he somehow starts winning primary contests again. Asked what he'd do if, for instance, Nebraska voters back him in Tuesday's primary, Cruz said he assumes that won't happen but added: "Let's be very clear, if there is a path to victory -- we launched this campaign intending to win." He said he suspended his campaign last week because he didn't see a viable path after his loss in Indiana, but, "If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly."

West Virginia, once Clinton Country, leans to Sanders | 10 May 2016 | Eight years ago, after her path to the Democratic presidential nomination had seemingly run out, Hillary Clinton found salvation in West Virginia. The state's still-dominant Democratic voters gave her a 41-point landslide victory, with wins in every county...Yet today, Clinton is expected to lose the state, having moved elsewhere as Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) barnstormed, and gone dark on the air, as she did in Indiana. In every West Virginia poll, the candidate who won every county last time is trailing the democratic socialist from Vermont.

Ted Cruz Backers Seek to Control Convention Platform | 09 May 2016 | Senator Ted Cruz's supporters are mounting an effort to seize control of the Republican platform and the rules governing the party's July convention, the first indication that Mr. Cruz will not simply hand his delegates over to Donald J. Trump. In an email sent Sunday to pro-Cruz convention delegates, a top aide to the Texas senator wrote that it was "still possible to advance a conservative agenda at the convention." ...With the assumption that the party's nomination would not be decided on the first convention ballot, Mr. Cruz spent considerable time this spring electing delegates favorable to him to the July convention in Cleveland. So while he is out of the race, [tragically] many of his [psychotic] supporters will still be delegates.

State regulators reopen case on San Onofre nuclear plant | 09 May 2016 | State regulators announced Monday that they have reopened the case involving the premature shutdown of the San Onofre nuclear plant, which closed after a replacement steam generator leaked.

The commission is giving parties involved in the case the opportunity to comment on whether the agreement was reasonable given that representatives of the plant's primary owner, Southern California Edison, engaged in secret talks with regulators over the closed nuclear plant.

Hours earlier, North Carolina's Republican governor, Pat McCrory, and the state's secretary of public safety sued the agency in a different federal court in North Carolina, accusing it of "baseless and blatant overreach."

Several former Facebook "news curators," as they were known internally, also told Gizmodo that they were instructed to artificially "inject" selected stories garbage into the trending news module, even if they weren't popular enough to warrant inclusion--or in some cases weren’t trending at all.

Video depicts U.S. military MREs, uniforms, and weapons found in area held by ISIS --U.S. has spent $7BILLION on 5,000 air strikes against ISIS targets...but still struggles to convince Iraqis it doesn't support terror group | 08 May 2016 | Government-allied Shiite militiamen on the front-lines post videos of U.S. supplies purportedly seized from ISIS militants or found in areas liberated from the extremist group...While supervising the channel's war reporting last year, al-Ahad TV spokesman Atheer al-Tariq claimed to have witnessed incidents when U.S. forces helped ISIS. As Iraqi security forces prepared to enter the city of Tikrit in April, he said two U.S. helicopters evacuated senior militants. A few months later, during an operation to retake the Beiji oil refinery, crates of weapons, ammunition and food were dropped over militant-held territory, he said. 'Is it logical to believe that America, the source of technology and science, could fire a rocket or drop aid materials in a mistaken way?' he asked. Videos uploaded to social media by front-line militiamen purport to tell a similar story. One shows U.S. military MREs, 'meals, ready-to-eat,' as well as uniforms and weapons said to have been found in an area held by IS. Another shows the interrogation of a captured IS militant. 'Check out his boots, they are from the U.S. army,' a fighter says. Another fighter points to a pile of rocket-propelled grenades he says were made in the U.S. and shipped to ISIS.
