    California Appeal CCMA ROD

    On Feb. 11, the California state director of the federal Bureau of Land Management signed the Record of Decision for the Clear Creek Management Area. Though the plan becomes effective immediately, the appeal period began simultaneously. The AMA supports H.R. 1776, the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act. To file an appeal of the Clear Creek ROD follow this link: Appeal the ROD To send a prewritten letter to your representative asking them to support H.R. 1776, follow this link: Take Action Based on the ROD publication date and federal rules, the deadline for appeal is March 14. To appeal the ROD now, follow this link: Appeal the Clear Creek ROD. The appeal must be filed with the Hollister Field Manager at Hollister Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, 20 Hamilton Court, Hollister, CA 95023. For further information, contact Mr. Sky Murphy, Planning & Environmental Coordinator, by telephone 831-630-5039 or email smurphy@blm.gov. The CCMA’s ROD includes several decisions that may be appealed. Under the decision signed by the BLM, only vehicles licensed for highway use may obtain permits to enter the Serpentine area, and the BLM retains the right to limit the number of annual visitor-use days "to reduce human health risks associated with exposure to naturally occurring asbestos." Currently, the BLM is limiting vehicle touring to five days a year and pedestrian activity to 12 days a year. The BLM says it may "reassess its decisions on access and vehicle travel in the Serpentine Area of Critical Environmental Concern if significant new information becomes available on human health risks from exposure to airborne asbestos fibers." The American Motorcyclist Association supports H.R. 1776, the Clear Creek National Recreation Area and Conservation Act, introduced by U.S. Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.) in May 2013. The bill would reopen the Clear Creek Management Area for recreational use and designate about 21,000 acres of BLM land adjacent to Clear Creek as the Joaquin Rocks Wilderness. The effect of this bill’s passage would be a significant boost for the economies of local communities and for off-highway vehicle riders across the West. Please contact your representative right away and urge him or her to support H.R. 1776. Send a prewritten letter by following this link: Take Action, filling out the form at the bottom of the page and clicking the red "submit" button. Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA to help us protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling, and your support will help the AMA fight for your rights – on the road, trail, racetrack, and in the halls of government. To join, go to AmericanMotorcyclist.com/membership/join. If you do send comments to the BLM, please email a copy of your comments to the AMA at grassroots@ama-cycle.org. Thank you.

    Ralphs a douche!

    Bring back Art Eckman!!! I would also like to have "Jerry Bernardo" call the play by play, now that would be entertaining! Say what you want about RS, he has corrected Fro daddy a few times and RS was right! I liked Fro as a rider and a movie star ("Fresno Smooth") but I am not sure about him as a commentator.....he's not bad but he's not great either. Don't go picking on "weedge", he does a lot for our sport behind the scenes! RC does a pretty good job but it is obvious that there is some bad mojo between RC and Fro, if I had to pick I would go with RC.
  15. Page 4 Dave Fisher, who has the grazing lease adjoining Horse-Thief Flats said, " In my opinion, the real reason for this operation had more to do with 'manufacturing wilderness' for the desert bill than fighting crime." "They have quietly and systematically bulldozed or burned these structures for years," says Ed White, member of historic Lone Valley Mining District. "The real reason for use of military was eliminating all evidence of human occupation so the Sierra Club could reclaim the area as wilderness. Blowing up the orad is counter productive, now the marijuana growers have a secure place to farm" On October 7, 1994 at 2:00 a.m., Representative George Miller (D-Calif.), representing the East San Francisco Bay area, led the charge to ram the wilderness bill through the House where it was passed by a voice vote. The bill was passed despite a huge grass-roots mobilization which sent out a fax alert on the bill. One Congressman who received the alert distributed hundreds of copies on the floor of the house. This Congressman stated that the critical issue was the massive corruption surrounding the theft of the gold in the Chocolate Mountains. The next day, Senator Malcolm Wallop (R-Wyo.) valiantly filibustered the Senate in an attempt to keep the bill from passing, but his efforts failed. As the Wilderness Bill was actively being filibustered, Secretary Babbitt was lobbying senators for their vote; he was ultimately ejected from the upper chamber. The Alliance of America, a coalition of property rights groups says that a criminal investigation should focus on the roles of corrupt politicians and environmental racketeers in the biggest gold heist in history. If Jesse James were alive today, he'd realize that profit is gained not by robbing banks but by being a politician." *End of article.* See what goes on while America plays or goes to the movie or to the mall or simply plops down in front of the boob tube every night. These politicians lie through their teeth for 15 second sound bites and give the old "rah, rah, siscum-bah" at political rallies, while behind the scenes, there is so much criminal activity going on by this government, it makes you sick. The viewing audience out in America, like robots incapable of any thought process, pick up on the repetition of key words and every couple of years dutifully go to the voting booth, punch a hole in a card they never see again and have no idea what happens to it. And people wonder why all this corruption is so pervasive in our political system? I don't. Senator Feinstein was born June 22, 1933. She attended San Francisco public schools from Kindergarten through 8th grade. She attended Convent of the Sacred Heart High School and graduated in 1951. She received her B.A. in history from Stanford University, was student body vice president and graduated 1955. She is currently married to Richard C. Blum, an investment banker and managing partner of Richard C. Blum & Associates. The Feinstein's have made a great deal of money doing business with the Communist Chinese. Di-Fi graduated from a Catholic High School but is one of the biggest supporters of Sodomites and abortion in this country. I guess she took lessons from the "Catholic" Kennedy's. Feinstein is a member of the Tri-Lateral Commission and a very important player for the globalists bankers, which is why she gets away with this type of criminal activity. Despite the alarm raised in Congress, no investigation of this powerful criminal has ever taken place. A couple of Republicans here in California would like to run against her in 2000 but all the media mouthpieces continue to chant that Di-Fi is "too popular" to be defeated. Condition the voters to the pre-controlled outcome in November 2000. Well, that's all well and fine but the hard core bottom line is that this mafia-type racketeer serves under a law that doesn't exist and that's where any serious inquiry should be directed. *******The 17th Amendment was never, I repeat, never ratified by the states of the Union. Anyone who runs for the senate in the year 2000, runs for an office that legally does not exist for filling by an election of the people. Now, we are either going to fix the lies foisted upon the American people or we are going to continue to slide down the abyss of ruin. If we had a Department of Justice, Feinstein, her husband , her cronies, and that includes the indescribable Willie Brown, would all be in a federal pen. If we had a single member of the House of Representatives (the senate couldn't do this because they have no power since they serve under a law that doesn't exist) with some guts, they would have already taken this to a grand jury. This sweetheart deal at the expense of the American people and especially the citizens of California, reeks of corruption. Karen Lee Bixman is an excellent researcher. A couple of years ago she developed some health problems that took her off the playing field of exposing government corruption. I hope wherever she is that her health has improved. If the military was used, like it was in Waco, in illegal activities on behalf of this criminal cabal who orchestrated this desert protection malarkey, I hope somewhere down the line, they are all brought under indictment by a grand jury and thrown in jail where they belong. It would certainly be nice if the "right-to-know" media mouthpieces would pick this up and expose it to the people but we all know that won't happen. Once again, a hurricane has become the saturation "news" story, obliterating discussion of anything else. I feel so bad for all the people who have had to evacuate as a result of Floyd and these other annual weather patterns, but for heaven's sake, can you remember during your lifetime when single weather occurrences dominated the media the way they have over the past year in this country? The espionage of Bill regarding defense weapons secrets with Communist China, and Waco are being shoved aside on electronic media in favor of "the hurricane will be here in three days," "the hurricane might hit here," "the hurricane just about hit there," "Floyd is this big and that big," "Floyd is now a class 3 and might this." I pray that no one gets killed during these terrible hurricanes, but never in my life can I remember so much news from across the country that focuses on one weather event at a time to the exclusion of anything else. Well, better to keep the people enthralled with possible film of death and destruction than expose corruption by the mob running Washington, DC.
