  • The Power Behind The Thrown?

    The “POWER BEHIND THE THRONE” refers to a person or group that informally exercises the real POWER of a high-ranking office, such as a head of state.

    In this case, The Power Behind the Thrown, are the Establishment’s  POLITICIANS that got thrown out in the 2016 presidential election.

    A Democrat, a Socialist and 16 Republicans from the establishment got thrown out. “BECAUSE AMERICAN VOTERS WANTED THE TRUTH”

    And as America’s voting citizens would have it….

    Donald J. Trump a non-politician  was elected President on Nov 8, 2016.

    Donald J. Trump is my president. He was sworn in on Jan 20, 2017.

    YEP.. A REAL, HONEST TO GOD MAN, SWORE ON A STACK OF BIBLES TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    From June 16, 2015, to date, the attacks on Donald Trump, by the public media in collaboration and  collusion with extreme activists have been horrendous and unceasing.

    Indeed, the establishments Government of politicians was dethroned  By Donald J. Trump
    The power of the liberal public media  was toppled by social media and the power of we the people.

     

    Hard power is the use of military and economic means to influence the behavior or interests of … Hard power contrasts with soft power, which comes from diplomacy, culture and history

    Which lead me to the historic U.S. government establishmented method to ensure the  smooth transition of power, as provide for, and done by our elected Democrat and Republican representative, by voting in the U.S. Congress, for those who consider themselves to be the permanent government of the United States of America. The un-elected  group at the highest level of government, that informally exercises the real POWER of  high-ranking office.

    Ex-CIA Analyst Says It’s Time To Clean House

    Earlier this week ex-CIA analyst  Ret. Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, told Martha MacCallum of Fox News that he thinks that left over members of Obama’s administration are withholding information from the President.

    The interview with MacCallum came as the Wall Street Journal released a report claiming that intelligence officials are purposefully withholding information from President Trump. The Gateway Pundit was one of the first to report on the claims from the WSJ article.

    From The Free Beacon:

    “The problem is this, you have a lot of folks who are either career members of the intelligence community who are skeptical of the current situation or who were at one point political appointees who have burrowed themselves into the infrastructure who are now career intelligence officers,” he said.

    Shaffer said it is evident that there are people who are embedded in the current administration that have retained loyalties to past administrations. This causes them to “[judge] for themselves what they should or should not do regarding intelligence.”

    “The same mentality where you’ve seen people leaking is the same mentality you see people holding information,” he said.

    In the U.S. Constitution there are only THREE  separate powers of Government

    ONE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLE EMBODIED IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS SEPARATION OF POWERS. … EACH OF THE THREE GOVERNMENTAL BRANCHES, LEGISLATIVE, EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL, “CHECKS” THE POWERS OF THE OTHER BRANCHES TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINCIPAL POWERS OF THE GOVERNMENT ARE NOT CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF ANY SINGLE BRANCH.

    I’ve spent hundreds of hours researching, reading, documenting and critically thinking (connecting the dots) and there is only one fourth secret power embedded in the US Government, that fits the criteria.

    A video surfaced on Wednesday showing a regional administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency comparing his agency’s philosophy with respect to regulation of oil and gas companies to brutal tactics employed by the ancient Roman army to intimidate its foes into submission.

    EPA’s “philosophy of enforcement,” said EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, is “kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean: they’d go into little Turkish towns somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they’d run into, and they’d crucify them.”

    “That town was really easy to manage for the next few years,” Armendariz added.

    His comments are indicative of the “EPA’s war on fossil fuels,” claimed Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) in a news release on Wednesday.

    Inhofe reiterated the remarks in a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon. ARMENDARIZ’S COMMENTS, INHOFE SAID, “GIVE US A RARE GLIMPSE OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S TRUE AGENDA.” The region over which Armendariz has authority includes Inhofe’s home state of Oklahoma.

    “IT’S ONE THING TO CREATE REGULATORY CERTAINTY AND FINE OR PUNISH A COMPANY FOR BREAKING THE LAW,” NOTED HERITAGE’S NICK LORIS IN REACTION TO THE VIDEO, “BUT IT’S ANOTHER TO TARGET A SPECIFIC INDUSTRY AND CREATE A REGULATORY STRANGLEHOLD on America’s access to affordable and reliable energy.”

    Blog: National Security Council leakers worried Trump might arrest them

    By Ed Straker

    If you’re a left-leaning member of the National Security Council and you’re unhappy with the duly elected president, what do you do?  Why, leak details of classified discussions and pending operations to the media, of course!

    In a N.Y. Times article, which itself is based on NSC leaks, leakers try to portray the NSC in chaos, but in the process of attempting to do so, they reveal the scope of their disloyalty.

    These are chaotic and anxious days inside the National Security Council, the traditional center of management for a president’s dealings with an uncertain world. Some staff members have turned to encrypted communications to talk with their colleagues, after hearing that Mr. Trump’s top advisers are considering an “insider threat” program that could result in monitoring cellphones and emails for leaks.

    Now, why would NSC staffers talking with their colleagues, presumably about affairs of state, feel the need to encrypt their conversations from the man they work for?  I think the implication is clear – that these conversations are about undermining and leaking information to harm the Trump administration.

    Nervous staff members recently met late at night at a bar a few blocks from the White House and talked about purging their social media accounts of any suggestion of anti-Trump sentiments.

    Why would they need to do that?  Past anti-Trump sentiments are not against the law.  But leaking classified information is.  I think these leakers are trying to keep a lower profile to avoid being caught.

    Last week, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was exploring whether the Navy could intercept and board an Iranian ship to look for contraband weapons possibly headed to Houthi fighters in Yemen.

    White House officials said that [the operation was cancelled]… because news of the impending operation leaked, a threat to security that has helped fuel the move for the insider threat program.

    This is leakers in action.  But instead of writing an article about their illegality, this is only mentioned in passing, as part of the Times’ main interest in portraying the NSC as being in chaos.  What amazes me is how the Times doesn’t seem to think revealing bureaucrats leaking classified information is even a problem; the paper is are so disconnected from reality that its writers think anything, including disregarding national security laws, is justified, all in the pursuit of Trump.

    [Some NSC staffers have left but] Many of those who remain, who see themselves as apolitical civil servants, have been disturbed by displays of overt partisanship. At an all-hands meeting about two weeks into the new administration, Ms. McFarland told the group it needed to “make America great again,” numerous staff members who were there said. New Trump appointees are carrying coffee mugs with that Trump campaign slogan into meetings with foreign counterparts, one staff member said.

    Why is it partisan to have a mug featuring the slogan of the president…in his own White House?  When Obama was president, do you think staff avoided pro-Obama slogans?  I’m sure they didn’t.  These people are just appalled to be confronted with direct evidence that Trump is their president.  It shows that they don’t have either the temperament or the loyalty to do their jobs.

    THE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION MANAGED TO ESTABLISH NEW SAFE HAVENS FROM WHERE IT PLANNED AND LAUNCHED ATTACKS AGAINST GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, AMISOM BASES, AND SOFT TARGETS IN KENYA AND OTHER PARTS OF THE REGION.

    THE EXPANSE REMAINED DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. SURVEILLANCE IMPROVED BUT REMAINED PARTIAL AT BEST, AND TRADITIONAL SMUGGLING AND PIRACY GROUPS HAVE PROVIDED AN EFFECTIVE COVER FOR TERRORIST ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING THE MOVEMENT OF PERSONNEL, EQUIPMENT, AND FUNDS. KIDNAPPINGS FOR RANSOM REMAINED AN ONGOING THREAT.

    THERE ARE UNGOVERNED, UNDER-GOVERNED, AND ILL-GOVERNED AREAS  THAT TERRORIST GROUPS HAVE USED TO ORGANIZE, PLAN, RAISE FUNDS, COMMUNICATE, RECRUIT, TRAIN, AND OPERATE IN RELATIVE SECURITY

    THESE AREAS ALLOWED THE GROUP’S OPERATIVES TO CONTINUE EXPLOITING THE POROUS BORDER REGIONS BETWEEN KENYA AND SOMALIA AND LAUNCH DEADLY CROSS-BORDER ATTACKS.

    SOUTHEAST ASIA IS VULNERABLE TO EXPLOITATION BY ILLICIT TRAFFICKERS AND PROLIFERATORS GIVEN THE HIGH VOLUME OF GLOBAL TRADE TRANSITING THE REGION AS WELL AS THE EXISTENCE OF SMUGGLING AND PROLIFERATION NETWORKS. WEAK STRATEGIC TRADE CONTROLS, LEGAL AND REGULATORY FRAMEWORKS, INADEQUATE MARITIME LAW ENFORCEMENT AND SECURITY CAPABILITIES

    2015, THE UNITED STATES CONTINUED TO WORK WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF THE PHILIPPINES TO MONITOR AND INVESTIGATE GROUPS ENGAGED IN OR SUPPORTING TERRORIST ACTIVITIES IN THE PHILIPPINES

    THE GOVERNMENT OF EGYPT VIEWS TERRORISM AS ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S GREATEST THREATS

    THE NORTHERN SINAI WAS CLOSED OFF TO TOURISTS, JOURNALISTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, AND NGOS IN 2015.

    ISIL-SP HAS CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR INCREASINGLY FREQUENT AND SOPHISTICATED TERRORIST ATTACKS AGAINST EGYPTIAN FORCES

    ISIL USED THE TERRITORY UNDER ITS CONTROL IN 2015 TO PRODUCE SULFUR MUSTARD AND IEDS FILLED WITH CHLORINE

    DUE TO SECURITY CONDITIONS IN IRAQ, THE EXPORT CONTROL AND RELATED BORDER SECURITY (EXBS) PROGRAM HAS HAD DIFFICULTY IMPLEMENTING OUTREACH ACTIVITIES.

    THE GOVERNMENT TOOK NO ACTION IN 2015 TO DISARM HIZBALLAH, TO ELIMINATE ITS SAFE HAVENS WITHIN LEBANESE TERRITORY, OR TO PREVENT THE FLOW OF HIZBALLAH MEMBERS TO SYRIA OR IRAQ. UNGOVERNED AREAS ALONG THE UN-DEMARCATED LEBANESE-SYRIAN BORDER ALSO SERVED AS SAFE HAVENS FOR NUSRAH FRONT, THE ISLAMIC STATE OF IRAQ AND THE LEVANT, AND OTHER SUNNI TERRORIST GROUPS IN 2015, WHICH OPERATE IN MOUNTAINOUS, MOSTLY UNINHABITED ZONES WHERE THE GOVERNMENT HAS LIMITED REACH.

    ITS POROUS BORDERS MAKE THE COUNTRY VULNERABLE FOR USE AS A TRANSIT AND TRANSSHIPMENT HUB FOR PROLIFERATION-SENSITIVE TRANSFERS, PARTICULARLY WITH THE CONFLICT IN SYRIA

    LIBYA’S POROUS BORDERS, FRAGMENTED SECURITY FORCES, AND VAST UNGOVERNED TERRITORY HAVE MADE IT A PERMISSIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR TERRORIST GROUPS such as Ansar al-Shari’a Benghazi, Ansar al-Shari’a Darnah, al-Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb, al-Murabitoun, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Due to the inability of the Libyan government to effectively administer its territory, terrorist organizations have found safe havens primarily in Sirte, Darnah, Benghazi, and Sabratha, although violent extremist groups operate with impunity throughout Libya

    THE GOVERNMENT FAILED TO ELIMINATE TERRORIST SAFE HAVENS IN LIBYA IN 2015, AND HAS BEEN UNABLE TO PREVENT FLOWS OF FOREIGN TERRORIST FIGHTERS IN AND OUT OF ITS TERRITORY. TERRORIST TRAINING CAMPS AND FACILITATION NETWORKS EXIST THROUGHOUT LIBYA; LOCAL TRIBES AND MINORITY GROUPS FREQUENTLY SERVE AS FACILITATORS

    THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT FOREIGN TERRORIST FIGHTERS ARE BEGINNING TO RETURN TO LIBYA OR CHOOSING TO STAY IN LIBYA TO FIGHT THERE, INCREASING CONCERNS THAT LIBYA HAS BECOME A BATTLEFIELD FOR VIOLENT EXTREMIST GROUPS SUCH AS ISIL.

    YEMEN. THROUGHOUT 2015, AL-QA’IDA IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA (AQAP) AND ISIL-YEMEN EXPLOITED THE POLITICAL AND SECURITY VACUUM TO STRENGTHEN THEIR FOOTHOLD AND EXPAND RECRUITING INSIDE THE COUNTRY.

    COLOMBIA, ILLEGAL ARMED GROUPS, PRIMARILY KNOWN AS “BANDAS CRIMINALES,” CONTINUED TO USE THE “POROUS BORDER”, REMOTE MOUNTAIN AREAS, AND JUNGLES TO MANEUVER, TRAIN, CULTIVATE AND TRANSPORT NARCOTICS, OPERATE ILLEGAL MINES, “TAX” THE LOCAL POPULACE, AND ENGAGE IN OTHER ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES.

    VENEZUELA’S “POROUS BORDER” WITH COLOMBIA HAS MADE THE COUNTRY ATTRACTIVE TO THE REVOLUTIONARY ARMED FORCES OF COLOMBIA AND THE NATIONAL LIBERATION ARMY, WHO USE IT TO TRANSIT IN AND OUT OF ITS TERRITORY. THERE WERE CREDIBLE REPORTS THAT VENEZUELA MAINTAINED A PERMISSIVE ENVIRONMENT THAT ALLOWED FOR SUPPORT OF ACTIVITIES THAT BENEFITED KNOWN TERRORIST GROUPS.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TEMPORARY TRAVEL BAN WAS  TO “PROVIDE” TIME TO REVIEW AND IDENTIFY  TERRORIST THREATS FROM SEVEN COUNTRY’S, PREVENTING  IMPROPERLY VETTED ALIENS FROM ENTERING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THAT POSED A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY.

    Page 406/407  OTHER SOFT TARGETS?

    This report includes some discretionary information IN AN EFFORT TO RELATE TERRORIST EVENTS to the larger context in which they occur, AND TO GIVE A FEEL FOR THE CONFLICTS THAT SPAWN VIOLENCE.

    This report does not contain statistical information specifically concerning combatants. The focus of the terrorism report, as is clear from the definition of terrorism, is on violence against noncombatant targets.

    WHY BOTHER WITH STATISTICAL INFORMATION SPECIFICALLY CONCERNING THE IMMIGRATION OF FOREIGN TERRORISTS?

    THIS 407 PAGE REPORT IS ONLY ABOUT FOREIGN TERRORIST THREATS

    TERRORIST ACTS ARE PART OF A LARGER PHENOMENON OF VIOLENCE INSPIRED BY A CAUSE, AND AT TIMES THE LINE BETWEEN THE TWO CAN BECOME DIFFICULT TO DRAW.

    LONE WOLVES RADICALIZED  BY RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS DON’T COUNT

    BUT, JUST LIKE FOREIGN TERRORIST, THEY CHOOSE WHO, THEY CHOOSE WHEN AND THEY CHOOSE WHERE.

    UPDATED: JANUARY 7, 2017

    With one of the biggest storms in years set to hit Northern California this weekend, we headed to The Chronicle’s archive to find photos and stories from the infamous New Year’s storm of 1997 that walloped the region 20 years ago.

    The flooding’s toll came to eight dead, $1.8 billion in economic losses, 23,000 homes destroyed, and 2,000 businesses damaged or decimated. FORTY-EIGHT COUNTIES WERE DECLARED DISASTER AREAS, INCLUDING ALL 46 IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

    CALIFORNIA SHOULD NOW EXPLORE A STATE FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM, WITH SAVINGS INVESTED IN LONG-TERM RISK REDUCTION

    “THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF LEVEES … “THOSE THAT HAVE FAILED AND THOSE THAT WILL FAIL”

    Which begs the question….

    HOW MANY DAMS HAVE BEEN REMOVED IN CALIFORNIA?

    NATIONWIDE, MORE THAN 1,300 DAMS HAVE BEEN REMOVED AS OF 2015.

    MOST OF THOSE DAMS (NEARLY 850) WERE REMOVED IN THE PAST 20 YEARS

     JUST SAYING AND ASKING?

    WHERE IS THE EXTENSIVE LIST OF THE DEVASTATION FOR FLOODING AND DROUGHT TO PUBLIC, PERSONAL AND PROPERTY AND LOSS OF HUMAN LIFE CAUSED BY THE REMOVAL OF THOSE DAMS?

    THIS APPROACH HAS MAJOR CHALLENGES, WITH IMPLICATIONS BOTH FOR CALIFORNIA AND NATIONWIDE THAT SHOULD BE EXPLORED.

    A full list of dams removed from 1999 to 2015 can be found here.

    Key findings from California’s Flood Future include:

    • CALIFORNIA IS AT CATASTROPHIC RISK FOR DEVASTATING FLOODS.California’s diverse geography contributes to the state’s significant flood risk. In many regions, peak flows — the largest volume of water flowing per second through a water system — occur in a very short time frame, which spells disaster.
    • Flooding is a statewide problem. Every California county has experienced a federally declared flood disaster in the past 20 years. Counties with relatively low risk for a major flood event would be impacted by the results of a catastrophic flood elsewhere in the state, when employment centers, transportation facilities, utilities and the economy are affected.
    • THE IMPACTS OF A MAJOR FLOOD WOULD BE DEVASTATING TO CALIFORNIA AND TO THE NATION.In addition to tragic loss of life, flooding in California can have a serious impact on its economy and environmental resources. A major flood in California, which has one of the world’s largest economies, will have an unprecedented impact on the national economy as well. With many more people and structures per square mile in California’s urban areas, the state would likely see much higher recovery costs from a major flood than the $110 billion that has been spent on recovery from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita or the $60 billion that has been appropriated for recovery from Superstorm Sandy.

    by Nicholas Pinter, Rui Hui, and Kathy Schaefer

    ACROSS THE US AND WORLDWIDE, FLOODING IS THE DEADLIEST AND MOST COSTLY NATURAL DISASTER.  The US National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is an imperfect framework for reducing flood losses, but currently the best we’ve got.  NFIP IS SCHEDULED FOR CONGRESSIONAL REAUTHORIZATION IN 2017, and this debate promises to be lively.  The Natural Hazards Research and Mitigation Group at UC Davis has been analyzing NFIP DATABASES, EXAMINING PATTERNS OVER THE HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM AND FOCUSING ON FLOOD LOSSES AND FLOOD INSURANCE, PARTICULARLY IN CALIFORNIA.

    Over the history of NFIP, California is one of a few states that has – through dry years and wet – received only a small fraction of payments from NFIP compared to the premiums it has paid in.  Since 1994, NFIP damage payouts in California have totaled just 14% of premiums collected (compared to 560% for the biggest recipient state, Mississippi).  For California, this imbalance exceeds $3 billion (2015 dollars) over 21 years, funds that could have been invested in risk-reduction, floodplain management, and reduced premiums.

    California has unparalleled expertise and a culture of progressive solutions for managing its flood risk; the state also has unique needs and intense pressures looking forward.  WITH THE US NFIP FACING AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE – >$20 BILLION IN DEBT, AND WITH A CHALLENGING CONGRESSIONAL REAUTHORIZATION DISCUSSION LOOMING IN 2017 – we recommend a careful look at California’s place in the NFIP.  In particular, CALIFORNIA SHOULD NOW EXPLORE A STATE FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM, WITH SAVINGS INVESTED IN LONG-TERM RISK REDUCTION.  Properly implemented, a state-based insurance program and proactive flood mitigation strategies could synergistically benefit the environment, agriculture, recreation, and water resources.  THIS APPROACH HAS MAJOR CHALLENGES, WITH IMPLICATIONS BOTH FOR CALIFORNIA AND NATIONWIDE THAT SHOULD BE EXPLORED.

    THE GREAT FLOOD IN CALIFORNIA.; Great Destruction of Property Damage $10,000,000.

    The destruction of property was terrible. The water came so rapidly that most people had not more than an hour’s warning of the danger.

    Men, women, and children had stayed in houses thinking there was no danger; and when the flood rose they could not get away. Some of these houses were carried off, and boats were sent after them to rescue the human freight.

    And now, on the morning of the 9th of November,

    HERE CAME “THE AMERICAN RIVER” WITH A FLOOD THAT COVERED THE WHOLE COUNTRY.
