Tesla Semi’s Latest Makeshift Megacharger Suggests Major Battery Upgrade

Tesla unveiled its Semi back in 2017, and it has been spotted in the wild on numerous occasions. One of the main questions, when the Semi was seen crossing the country, was how was it going to charge? It couldn’t possibly rely on a normal Supercharger, right?

Well, it sort of did. Tesla actually had to make a setup that would allow the Semi to pull from multiple Superchargers at the same time. In fact, people saw the Tesla Semi connected to five Superchargers while charging.

Clearly, this was due to the Semi’s massive battery pack. However, the charging situation can’t remain this way. Tesla has plans to build out Megachargers for the Semi, but since the vehicle is not yet being produced or delivered to customers, it makes no sense to build a charging network yet.

With CEO Elon Musk recently emailing his employees that it’s time to bring the Tesla Semi to volume production, it’s also time to nail down the charging situation.

Al Qaeda Issues a Propaganda Message to Incite MORE Violence in America

It’s not really surprising that enemies of the United States are trying to take advantage of the current unrest, and given the ongoing protests and riots in the United States, this message can only be meant to incite further violence. (To learn more about surviving civil unrest, go here.)

The message urges no “compromises” and calls upon protesters to “persist in your defiance.” It warns of the punishment of Allah against those who fail to “revolt” and “overthrow the existing order.”

Below you can find screenshots from AlertsUSA of the message.

With the number of disenfranchised young Americans, the message is particularly insidious during this difficult time in our country. With a 4th of July that is certain to be “eventful” rapidly approaching, will this message incite even further dissent and violence?

Farce or Freedom This Fourth?

Free people look the part. They do not wear the same government-decreed uniform. A sea of the Face Diapered Demoralized, standing six feet apart on X marks the spot – perhaps with plexiglass partitions in between – isn’t a picture-portrait of freedom. To describe such a pathetic spectacle of fear-induced obedience as people “celebrating their freedom” is like describing a quadriplegic as “differently abled.” Not even the dignity of editorial honesty – much less the dignity of men, which is being systematically attacked for reasons which by now ought to be as clear the July sun.

Free people are free to smile – and be seen smiling. They do not obediently stand on X marks the spot or stand six feet apart just because a sign said so. For the same reason they wouldn’t do jumping jacks because a sign (or a government Gesundheitsfuhrer) said so.

What meaning does “freedom” have if you are not free to

West Hollywood is latest California city to impose fines on anyone not wearing a mask in public

That’s now the law in West Hollywood, where officials announced late Wednesday they will begin issuing citations to those who do not cover their faces amid the surging coronavirus pandemic.

Those who don’t wear face masks will be fined a total of $300 – a $250 fine plus a $50 fee – for the first offense, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s West Hollywood Station.

They’re being called “Administrative Citations.”

The announcement came just hours after Governor Gavin Newsom tightened coronavirus restrictions across 19 counties statewide as cases and hospitalizations continue to spike.

Those 19 counties include Los Angeles, as well as Santa Clara, Solano, and Contra Costa counties in the Bay Area.

At this time there are no fines being imposed on people who don’t wear masks in the Bay Area.

However, San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa last week wrote a letter to Gov. Newsom urging him to

Russian Referendum on Constitutional Reforms, Lifting Putin Term Limits, Passes by Wide Margin

Russia’s Central Elections Commission says that with three quarters of precincts counted, a referendum on mass amendment of the Russian Constitution passed with 77% support from voters. This is a surprisingly wide margin, though it was expected to pass.

The referendum was the bulk passage of 206 amendments, including one which would allow President Vladimir Putin to run for reelection. Current term limits prevent him from holding office after 2024. The amendment will reset the limits, giving Putin two more 6 year terms to potentially have, up to 2036.

The Putin term limit amendment has led many to conclude this is a Putin referendum, though historians argue that it is mainly aimed at passing a “Russian constitution,” after previous revisions heavily borrowed from US and French ideas.

Israel Delays West Bank Annexation, No Announcement Imminent

Read more on this subject: Israel – Palestine
News Story Source: https://news.antiwar.com, Jason Ditz
July 1 came and went in Israel, and despite it long being presented as the day of annexation of the West Bank, nothing happened. Officials say the process is effectively delayed, and nothing is imminent. Aides to Prime Minister Netanyahu said that there are delays, but didn’t say how long.

The US, who didn’t want to deal with the fallout, had pushed for a delay, and officials say the US never considered July 1 a “deadline” for Israel to annex Palestine. Seemingly the US is still okay with annexation in the long run. New Israel-US talks are planned.

After making July 1 the announcement date, Israel made no real progress on maps, or details, and international concern was enough to make sure no final move was taken. The US has urged Israel to avoid totally ruling out Palestinian statehood, and Israeli settlers have insisted ruling out Palestinian statehood is a must.

Independence Now And Independence Forever

Read more on this subject: Declaration of Independence
Opinion Column by Chuck Baldwin
This Saturday, July 4, America celebrates the 244th anniversary of the adoption of our Declaration of Independence. 

On July 4, 1837, John Quincy Adams said these words about Independence Day: 

Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [Independence Day]? . . . Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity, and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies, announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets
