    CLIMATE SCIENCE SPECIAL REPORT

    The U.S. Global Change Research Program and the Climate Science Special Report

    The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) was established by Presidential initiative in 1989 and mandated by Congress in the Global Change Research Act (GCRA) of 1990.

    Its mandate is to develop and coordinate “a comprehensive and integrated United States research program which will assist the Nation and the world to understand, assess, predict, and respond to human-induced and natural processes of global change.”

    USGCRP comprises 13 Federal agencies that conduct or use research on global change and its impacts on society, in support of the Nation’s response to global change.

    USGCRP functions under the direction of the Subcommittee on Global Change Research (SGCR) of the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee on Environment, Natural Resources, and Sustainability (CENRS).

    USGCRP has three major sets of responsibilities: (a) coordinating global change research across the Federal government, (b) development and distribution of mandated products, and (c) informing decisions.

    One of the statutorily mandated products is a quadrennial assessment that USGCRP prepares and submits to the President and the Congress. This quadrennial assessment, referred to as the National Climate Assessment, is directed by the GCRA to:

    1. Integrate, evaluate, and interpret the findings of the Program and discuss the scientific uncertainties associated with such findings
    2. Analyze the effects of global change on the natural environment, agriculture, energy production and use, land and water resources, transportation, human health and welfare, human social systems, and biological diversity
    3. Analyze current trends in global change, both human- induced and natural, and project major trends for the subsequent 25 to 100 years.

    The current quadrennial assessment, scheduled to be released in late 2018, is being developed in two parts: the Climate Science Special Report (CSSR) and the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4). CSSR is a scientific analysis that addresses requirements (1) and (3) in the list above. NCA4 uses that scientific assessment to inform an analysis of the impacts of global change on the sectors specified in (2) above, while expanding upon elements of (1) and (3), as appropriate.

    What is the Climate Science Special Report (CSSR)?

    The CSSR is a component of the current quadrennial assessment.

    The report development is overseen by the SGCR through a Federal Science Steering Committee (SSC), made up of representatives from USGCRP agencies and appointed by the SGCR. NOAA serves as the administrative agency for CSSR (i.e., NOAA established the procedures for the report and released Federal Register Notices).

    The SSC selected three Coordinating Lead Authors, all of whom were Federal employees during the development of this report. Following a public call (via Federal Register Notice) for technical contributor nominations in March 2016, the SSC endorsed writing team selections, consisting of scientists representing Federal agencies, national laboratories, universities, and the private sector. Contributing Authors were selected based on specific needs identified by the authors. Review Editors were chosen from the technical contributor pool and endorsed by SSC to ensure that authors adequately responded to all comments received during the public and National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine review periods.

    Planning for the report began in early 2015 with a prospectus developed in the summer of that year. That was followed by the development of process guidance and the naming of author teams.  Writing began in April 2016 and an initial draft was made available for public comment in December 2016. A series of technical expert reviews were conducted throughout the report’s development.  SGCR is responsible for its final clearance and, ultimately, its public release.

    Expected Timeline

    2015

    • Fall: SGCR approves report prospectus

    2016

    • March: Federal Register Notice call for technical contributor nominations
    • Spring/Summer: First Order Draft development

    POLITICAL CARTOONS? MANY A REAL TRUTH IS SPOKEN IN JEST.

    Old silly me, I thought the republican symbol of the elephant was  created by the genius of the GOP.

    THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS FORMED IN 1854

    TWENTY YEARS LATER 1874  THE ELEPHANT WAS STILL A GOP POLITICAL CARTOON

    IN AN 1874 HARPER’S WEEKLY CARTOON. an elephant labeled “THE REPUBLICAN VOTE,” which was shown standing at the edge of a pit, Thomas Nast who’s considered the father of the modern political cartoon employed the elephant to represent Republicans in additional cartoons during the 1870s, and by 1880 other cartoonists were using the creature to symbolize the party. 

    An 1879 cartoon (pictured) showed a politician grabbing a donkey LABELED “DEMOCRATIC PARTY” by the tail to keep it from falling into a pit of “financial chaos.”

    Jul 7, 2015 –   THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S ELEPHANT and THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S DONKEY have been on the political scene since the 19th century. The origins of the DEMOCRATIC DONKEY can be traced to the 1828 presidential campaign of Andrew Jackson. DURING THAT RACE, OPPONENTS OF JACKSON CALLED HIM A JACKASS.

    NOT ELECTING THE NEXT PRESIDENT

    Why Nast chose the donkey and the elephant is a pretty complicated story.

    Although Nast’s original interpretation used the donkey to stand in for a Democrat-leaning newspaper scaring away Republican voters,

    his cartoon showing a duplicitous donkey attacking a weak-minded elephant,

    became a handy symbol for other cartoonists wanting to represent Democrats attacking Republicans.

    Popular recognition of the image overrode the party’s own wishes

    Over time, Republicans came to view the elephant emblem as a sign of strength and intelligence, while their opponents portrayed it as a timid and clumsy behemoth. Democrats seized the “jackass” label, and transformed it into a clever and courageous donkey.

    AS IS STILL TRUE TODAY, IT’S ALL IN THE SPIN!

    Elephant Graveyard. The existence of a mass graveyard to which elephants go to die remains a myth. IT IS THOUGHT TO BE THE RETREAT OF OLD AND DYING ELEPHANTS,SO THAT THEY DIE AWAY FROM THE HERD, NOT HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THOSE THAT REMAIN BEHIND.

    An elephants’ graveyard is a place where, according to legend, OLDER ELEPHANTS INSTINCTIVELY DIRECT THEMSELVES WHEN THEY REACH A CERTAIN AGE. THEY THEN DIE THERE ALONE, FAR FROM THE GROUP.

    AWAY FROM THE HERD, NOT HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THOSE THAT REMAIN BEHIND.

    Is  Google answer, a coincidence of political symbolic importance, a myth  a legend or an oxymoron? All of the above?

    Find Designated Uses for Waters of the State

    SHALL WE HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST BETWEEN THE LAW AND THE DOE RULE?

    (RCW 90.58.020) Shoreline Master Programs (SMPs)

    There are three basic policy areas to the Act: shoreline use, environmental protection and public access. The Act emphasizes accommodation of appropriate uses that require a shoreline location, protection of shoreline environmental resources and protection of the public’s right to access and use the shorelines

    Public access: Master programs must include a public access element making provisions for public access to publicly owned areas, and a recreational element for the preservation and enlargement of recreational opportunities.

    The overarching policy is that “the public’s opportunity to enjoy the physical and aesthetic qualities of natural shorelines of the state shall be preserved to the greatest extent feasible consistent with the overall best interest of the state and the people generally. “Alterations of the natural conditions of the shorelines of the state, in those limited instances when authorized, shall be given priority for…development that will provide an opportunity for substantial numbers of people to enjoy the shorelines of the state.”

    SHALL WE THE CITIZENS BE ALLOWED TO WALK ON THE SHORELINE BUT NOT TAKE RECREATION  IN THE WATER?

    —————————————————————————-

    CONTINUED….

    Designated uses have sometimes been called “BENEFICIAL USES” and include public water supply, protection for fish, shellfish, and wildlife,

    AS WELL AS RECREATIONAL

    agricultural, industrial, navigational and aesthetic purposes. Water quality criteria designed to protect the designated uses and are used to assess the general health of Washington surface waters and set permit limits. Marine and fresh waters have designated uses assigned in a “use-based” format, where individual waterbodies are assigned individual uses.

    To find the designated uses for marine waterbodies refer to WAC 173-201A-610 and 612. For marine aquatic life uses see map (PDF). For marine criteria refer to WAC 173-201A-210, 240, and 260.

    Finding designated uses and criteria for rivers and streams is slightly more complex because of the large number of salmonid species and their complex freshwater spawning cycles.

    To find the designated use(s) for rivers and streams refer to WAC 173-201A-600 and 602 (Table 602) of the water quality standards.

    Table 602 is an extensive listing of waterbodies and the uses assigned to those waterbodies. Section 600 outlines default uses for those waterbodies not specifically named in Table 602.

  • Hyper-globalization by Hook or by Crook?

    Starting were I left off on my last post, in the beginning, the 2001 preface was redefining globalization.

    THE CHANGE IN THE ROLE OF NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS (INCLUDED NEUTRALIZING THE POWER AND THE SOVEREIGNTY OF  U.S.A.) IS THE MOST EVIDENT IN THE CASE OF THE WCD.

    2001 IN THE END, THE ISSUE WAS NOT AND IS NOT ABOUT DAMS.

    Most of the critical reaction was expected. The report represented a significant departure from traditional thinking on the role of large dams in WATER and energy development.It introduced several considerations that were not previously given much weight in decision-making. This will take some getting used to.

     THE THEORY OF HYPERGLOBALISATION BY HOOK OR BY CROOK?

     (you decide)

     Hmmm…AUG 9, 2017 EXPOSING THE HOOKERS AND CROOKS.

     ———————————————————————————-

     AS NOTED IN THE 2001 COMMENT. SPECIFICALLY REWORDED REGARDING THE GLOBALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INCLUDING THE PAST THREE DECADES OF HYPERGLOBALISATION.

     —————————————————————————–

    WE THE PEOPLE of The United States government,  have witnessed a three-way migration of the authority-voluntary or INVOLUNTARY-once vested in US:

    The upward migration to supranational structures WITH FUNCTIONS ONCE VESTED  SOLELY THE UNITED STATE GOVERNMENT, WE THE PEOPLE,  such as the European Union (“EU”), the International Monetary Fund (“IMF”), or the World Trade Organization (“WTO”);  and outward migration to the GLOBAL market, corporations, and elements of civil society.

    GLOBALIZATION OF THE  UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN KEEPING WITH THE PRINCIPLE OF SUBSIDIARITY

    PROMINENT AMONG THESE ARE THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL INSTITUTIONS  AT THE  FOREFRONT OF GLOBAL ECONOMIC MANAGEMENT-THE WORLD BANK, THE IMF,  THE WTO AND TO A LESSER EXTENT THE ORGANIZATIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS.

    ——————————————————————————-

    The downward migration to regional and local levels go and IN RESPONSE TO WE THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA DEMAND FOR LIGHTER U.S. GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES;

    MANY FUNCTIONS FORMERLY RESTING WITH THE US GOVERNMENT IN CONGRESS,

    ARE NOW PRIVATIZED,  OR ABANDONED AND ADOPTED BY NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (“NGOS”) and other elements of civil society.

    INDEED,  THESE GLOBAL NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (“NGOS”) RETAIN A DECISION-MAKING STRUCTURE THAT IS BARELY ACCOUNTABLE TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND  WE THE PEOPLE, HARD WORKING, TAXPAYING, VOTING  AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    ————————————————

    WHY PRIVATIZED PROFITEERING ARAMARK is bring in FOREIGN VISA WORKERS from NIGERIA, INDIA, PAKISTAN, ROMANIA etc. And taking jobs away from American citizens in a very small communities in WA State?

    Ever wonder why the federal government would be allowing hundreds of foreign refugees to work in a relatively small town in Idaho?  including all of the above but not limited to, and for other purposes? Wonder no more. Many of them end up working in the world’s largest yogurt factory.

    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PAST THREE DECADES OF HYPERGLOBALISATION?

     —————————————————————-

    THE HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?  (AN INSIDE JOB?)

    In April 2011, the EPA, under the Barack Obama administration, proposed a new set of guidelines to replace the two issued under the Bush administration. These guidelines formed the basis of what became the Clean Water Rule. In contrast to the manner in which the 2003 and 2007 guidelines were issued, THE EPA AND THE USACE CONDUCTED PEER-REVIEWED HYDROLOGICAL STUDIES, INTERAGENCY REVIEWS, AND ECONOMIC ANALYSES BEFORE PUBLISHING A FORMAL PROPOSED RULE ON APRIL 21, 2014.[12][15]

    On May 27, 2015, after a public comment period and numerous meetings with state entities, public and private stakeholders, then-EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy along with Assistant Army Secretary Jo-Ellen Darcy signed the Clean Water Rule, set to become effective in August of that year 2015.[1]

    THE GLOBAL HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?

    THIS ARTICLE IS 3 YEARS OLD The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim saidTHE WATER ISSUE IS CRITICALLY RELATED TO climate change. People say that carbon is the currency of climate change. WATER IS THE TEETH. FIGHTS OVER WATER AND FOOD ARE GOING TO BE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DIRECT IMPACTS OF climate change in the next five to 10 years. There’s just no question about it.

    The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim said ,DO WE HAVE A PLAN? ‘What do you mean a plan?’ I said a plan that’s equal to the challenge. A plan that will convince anyone who asks us that we’re really serious about climate change, and that we have a plan that can actually keep us at less than 2C warming. We still don’t have one.DO WE HAVE A PLAN? THE ANSWER, three years ago  WAS NO.

    DID THE WORLD BANK JUST GET LUCKY?

    Two years later the World Bank had a Global plan. Thanks to Obama and his appointed Administration WOTUS BY RULE.

    RCW 90.48.465 – Water Pollution Control requires that Ecology establish, by rule, annual fees that fund the wastewater and stormwater permit programs.

    Ecology amended Chapter 173-224 WAC – Wastewater Discharge Permit Fees. This amendment allows permit fees to be increased for Fiscal Year 2018 (July 2017 – June 30, 2018) and Fiscal Year 2019 (July 2018 – June 2019) so that we can recover the cost of administering the wastewater and stormwater programs this biennium.

    Scope of rule development

    State law (RCW 80.48.465 – Water Pollution Control) requires Ecology to fund its wastewater and stormwater permit programs through annual fees paid by permit holders.

    The proposed changes sought to continue moving the program toward payment equity between permit categories. Ecology adopted a larger percentage fee increase for underpaying categories and a smaller percentage fee increase for overpaying categories.

    Ecology’s goals in establishing the percentage splits are to honor the need for fund equity while not over-burdening the under-paying categories with an increase that is not sustainable.

    We updated rule language to account for changes in current business practices relating to electronic payment options, collection processes, and data collection. We also removed the winery general permit fee category for the 2017-19 biennium, as this new permit will not be effective until July 1, 2019.

    The adopted percentages increases by category are:

    Underpaying Fee Categories
    SFY 2018
    (July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018)
    6.37%

  • June 20, 2017 Clallam County SMP Update

    My public comment

    Vested Clallam County Citizens have been fearful of how the SMP Update will affect their private property use since Jan 26, 2011.

    INDEED, THIS IS NOT ABOUT PROTECTING SHORE LANDS, WETLANDS, ANIMALS OR RIVERS. THIS IS ABOUT CONTROLLING PEOPLE AND THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY.  I WISH PEOPLE WOULD WAKE UP TO WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY, STATE AND COUNTY  WITH REGARDS TO CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CONTROLLING LAND AND IMPOSING HEAVY REGULATIONS ON ALL PRIVATE PROPERTY.

    I received a phone call from a concerned (fearful) Clallam County citizen last night.

    “Pearl, have you read the new SMP Update Draft? Do you know how Steve Grey and (ESA Consultant) Margaret Clancy have changed it? Do you know what’s in it?”

    We talked for over an hour. My understanding of the most outrageous concerns.

    There shall be 200 foot setbacks based on a concocted 100 year plan?  Clallam County SMP Update Requirements prior to any permitted use of private shoreline property shall include, but not limited to,  up to $20,000.00 in …….

    Geotechnical Engineering

    www.whatisgeotech.org/

    IT INCLUDES, WITHOUT BEING LIMITED TO, the analysis, design and construction of foundations, slopes, retaining structures, embankments, roadways, tunnels, levees, wharves, landfills and other systems that are made of or are supported by soil or rock. Geotechnical Societies by Country.

    ———————————————————-

    The concerned citizen said, Pearl, what are you going to do about this? You have private shoreline property that will be seriously affected.

    IN CLALLAM COUNTY WA, THERE ARE 3300 VESTED SHORELINE PRIVATE PROPERTY  OWNERS THAT SHALL BE SERIOUSLY AFFECTED BY THE OUTRAGEOUS RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY SMP UPDATE, I AM JUST ONE OF THEM.

    THE REAL QUESTION IS WHAT ARE OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

    THEY HAVE VOTERS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THOSE AFFECTED BY THE SMP UPDATE, THAT FEEL VIOLATED BY THE RESTRICTED USE OF THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY IN CLALLAM COUNTY.

    ———————————————————————–

    INDEED, BUT EVEN MORE TO THE POINT, what business does the government have telling a man whether or not he can plow or not on his own land?  This is not about wetlands and animals or rivers.  This is about controlling people and their property.  I wish people would wake up to what is taking place in this country with regards to central government controlling land and imposing heavy regulations on private property.

    Farmer Faces $2.8 Million Fine for… Plowing His Field! – Freedom …

    May 26, 2017 – A California farmer is facing $2.8 million in fines for plowing his field and planting wheat without a permit. John Duarte of Duarte Nursery is …

    Tim BrownMay 26, 2017

    A California farmer is facing $2.8 million in fines for plowing his field and planting wheat without a permit.

    John Duarte of Duarte Nursery is David going up against Goliath, just like ranchers, farmers and natural health product makers.  His case could set a dangerous precedent that would require farmers to obtain expensive and time-consuming permits from the US Army of Corps Engineers before planting crops.

    “The case is the first time that we’re aware of that says you need to get a (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) permit to plow to grow crops,” said Anthony Francois, a lawyer for the Pacific Legal Foundation. “We’re not going to produce much food under those kinds of regulations.”

    However, U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller sided with the Army Corps last June, in which the US Attorney’s Office is asking for $2.8 million in civil penalties.

    Why?  Who was harmed?  What real and actual crime took place?

    USA Today has the background of the story that began in 2012 when Mr. Duarte planted wheat on land that he bought with his own money, some 450 acres.

    Because the property has numerous swales and wetlands, Duarte hired a consulting firm to map out areas on the property that were not to be plowed because they were part of the drainage for Coyote and Oat creeks and were considered “waters of the United States.”

    Francois conceded that some of the wetlands were plowed but not significantly damaged. He said the ground was plowed to a depth of 4 to 7 inches.

    The Army Corps did not claim Duarte violated the Endangered Species Act by destroying fairy shrimp or their habitat, Francois said.

    This particular freshwater species is unique to California and southern Oregon and has been classified as a threatened species since 1994 because much of its wetlands in California’s Central Valley were converted to cropland or became urban.

    Duarte’s wheat was planted but not harvested because in February 2013 the Army Corps of Engineers and the California Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board issued orders to stop work at the site. The agencies claimed Duarte had violated the Clean Water Act by not obtaining a permit to discharge dredged or fill material into seasonal wetlands considered waters of the United States.

    Duarte sued the Army Corps and the state, alleging they violated his constitutional right of due process by issuing the cease and desist orders without a hearing. The U.S. Attorney’s Office counter-sued Duarte Nursery tto enforce the Clean Water Act violation.

    Farmers plowing their fields are specifically exempt from the Clean Water Act rules forbidding discharging material into U.S. waters, Francois said.

    The government claims that Duarte did not plow but rather used a ripper, which dug 10 inches into the soil and they allege that it disturbed portions of the property that included wetland areas.

    “Even under the farming exemption, a discharge of dredged or fill material incidental to the farming activities that impairs the flow of the waters of the United States still requires a permit because it changes the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters,” the U.S. attorney said in court filings.

    Francois claims the penalties are unfair because his client believed the plowing exemption allowed him to till the soil.

    “A plain reading of the rules says you don’t need a permit to do what he did,” Francois said. “How do you impose a multimillion penalty on someone for thinking the law says what it says?”

    Indeed, but even more to the point, what business does the government have telling a man whether or not he can plow or not on his own land?  This is not about wetlands and animals or rivers.  This is about controlling people and their property.  I wish people would wake up to what is taking place in this country with regards to central government controlling land and imposing heavy regulations on private property.

    ——————

    The bottom line…

    WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

    Just saying, To Local Elected Representatives..

    Changes are taking place in WA DC.

    Don’t lock yourself up by imposing restricted use on Private Property that you can’t defend and uphold in a court of law.

    ——————————————————————-

    WHAT IS THE FIVE EYES?

    THE FIVE EYES ALLIANCE IS A SECRETIVE, GLOBAL SURVEILLANCE ARRANGEMENT OF STATES COMPRISED OF THE UNITED STATES NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY (NSA), THE UNITED KINGDOM’S GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATIONS HEADQUARTERS(GCHQ), CANADA’S COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY ESTABLISHMENT CANADA (CSEC), THE AUSTRALIAN SIGNALS DIRECTORATE (ASD), AND NEW ZEALAND’S GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY BUREAU (GCSB).

    BEGINNING IN 1946, AN ALLIANCE OF FIVE ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES (THE US, THE  UK, AUSTRALIA, CANADA AND NEW ZEALAND) developed a series of  bilateral agreements over more than a decade that became known as the UKUSA agreement, establishing the Five Eyes alliance for the purpose of sharing intelligence, primarily signals intelligence (SIGINT).

    FOR ALMOST 70 YEARS, THIS SECRET POST-WAR ALLIANCE OF FIVE ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES HAS BEEN BUILDING A GLOBAL SURVEILLANCE INFRASTRUCTURE TO “MASTER THE INTERNET” AND SPY ON THE WORLD’S COMMUNICATIONS.

    ———————————————————————-

    WHAT DOES THE FIVE EYES, (AKA PRISM) AGREEMENT SAY?

    Despite being nearly 70 years old, very little is known about the alliance and the agreements that bind them. While the existence of the agreement has been noted in history books and references are often made to it as part of reporting on the intelligence agencies, there is little knowledge or understanding outside the services themselves of exactly what the arrangement comprises.

    Even within the governments of the respective countries, which the intelligence agencies are meant to serve, there has historically been little appreciation for the extent of the arrangement. In fact, it is so secretive that the Australian prime minister reportedly wasn’t informed of its existence until 1973 and no government officially acknowledged the arrangement by name until 1999. Few documents have been released detailing the Five Eyes surveillance arrangement. To read the documents available, click here for the National Archives and here for the NSA’s release of the UKUSA Agreement.

    Here’s what we do know: under the agreement interception, collection, acquisition, analysis, and decryption is conducted by each of the State parties in their respective parts of the globe, and all intelligence information is shared by default. The agreement is wide in scope and establishes jointly-run operations centres where operatives from multiple intelligence agencies of the Five Eyes States work alongside each other.

    Further, tasks are divided between SIGINT agencies, ensuring that the Five Eyes alliance is far more than a set of principles of collaboration. The level of cooperation under the agreement is so complete that the national product is often indistinguishable.

    WHAT’S THE EXTENT OF FIVE EYES COLLABORATION?

    Together the Five Eyes collaborated and developed specific technical programmes of collection and analysis. One senior member of Britain’s intelligence community said “WHEN YOU GET A GCHQ PASS IT GIVES YOU ACCESS TO THE NSA TOO. YOU CAN WALK INTO THE NSA AND FIND GCHQ STAFF HOLDING SENIOR MANAGEMENT POSITIONS, AND VICE VERSA. When the NSA has a piece of intelligence, it will very often ask GCHQ for a second opinion. There have been ups and downs over the years, of course. But in general, the NSA and GCHQ are extremely close allies. They rely on each other.”

    The close relationship between the five States is also evidenced by documents recently released by Edward Snowden. Almost all of the documents include the classification

    “TOP SECRET//COMINT//REL TO USA, AUS, CAN, GBR, NZL”

    or “TOP SECRET//COMINT//REL TO USA, FVEY.”

    THESE CLASSIFICATION MARKINGS INDICATE THE MATERIAL IS TOP-SECRET COMMUNICATIONS INTELLIGENCE (AKA SIGINT) MATERIAL THAT CAN BE RELEASED TO THE US, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, UNITED KINGDOM AND NEW ZEALAND.

    THE PURPOSE OF THE REL TO IS TO IDENTIFY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION THAT A PARTY HAS PREDETERMINED TO BE RELEASABLE (OR HAS ALREADY BEEN RELEASED) THROUGH ESTABLISHED FOREIGN DISCLOSURE PROCEDURES AND CHANNELS, TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY OR INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION.

    The level of co-operation under the UKUSA agreement is so complete that “the national product is often indistinguishable.”

    Another former British spy has said THAT “[C]OOPERATION BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES, PARTICULARLY, IN SIGINT, IS SO CLOSE THAT IT BECOMES VERY DIFFICULT TO KNOW WHO IS DOING WHAT […] IT’S JUST ORGANIZATIONAL MESS.”

    Despite rumours of a “no-spy pact”, there is no prohibition on intelligence-gathering by Five Eyes States on the citizens or residents of other Five Eyes States, although there is a general understanding that citizens will not be directly targeted and where communications are incidentally intercepted there will be an effort to minimize the use and analysis of such communications by the intercepting State.

     WikiLeaks NOVEMBER 23, 2010 THE PRIVATE FACE OF HILLARY AND HER SERVER

    Report: Clinton mulled killing Wikileaks’ Julian Assange with drone strike

    Tuesday NOVEMBER 23, 2010 shortly after 8 a.m. Clinton met with staff on Mahogany Row at the State Department to attempt to formulate a strategy to avert Assange’s plans to release an enormous batch of 250,000 secret cables, dating from 1966 to 2010.

    Clinton’s State Department was getting pressure from President Obama and his White House inner circle, as well as heads of state internationally, to try and cutoff Assange’s delivery of the cables and if that effort failed, then to forge a strategy to minimize the administration’s public embarrassment over the contents of the cables.

    Hence, Clinton’s early morning November meeting of State’s top brass who floated various proposals to stop, slow or spin the Wikileaks contamination.

    That is when a frustrated Clinton, sources said, at some point blurted out a controversial query.

    “CAN’T WE JUST DRONE THIS GUY?” CLINTON OPENLY INQUIRED, offering a simple remedy to silence Assange and smother Wikileaks via a planned military drone strike, according to State Department sources.

    The statement drew laughter from the room which quickly died off when the Secretary kept talking in a terse manner, sources said.

    Clinton said Assange, after all, was a relatively soft target, “walking around” freely and thumbing his nose without any fear of reprisals from the United States. Clinton was upset about Assange’s previous 2010 records releases,

    —————————————————–

    …[E]mails previously released from Clinton’s private server reveal Anne Marie Slaughter, a former director of policy planning at the State Department, sent an email on the same day in 2010 on the subject of possible “nonlegal strategies” for dealing with WikiLeaks.

    THE INTERNATIONAL ANIMOSITY FROM AMERICAN ALLIES CAUSED BY OBAMA AND  HILLARY?

    (a feeling of strong dislike, ill will, or enmity that tends to display itself in action)

    IS NOT COMPLICATED…. when you connect the dots 2010-2016

    The clout that the United States enjoys in global affairs has been on the demise since Obama’s presidential inauguration in 2009.

    The bottom Line

    Oct. 24, 2016 It’s not the American People against the world…

    It’s the world against Obama and Hillary’s  foreign policy and Political agenda.

    ————————————————————–

    President Obama insulted China, Obama did not invite China to join the American-driven trans-pacific partnership Trade Pact, insisting that Beijing should not be allowed to write the rules for 21st- century commerce.

     THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF BOTH BANKS IS SAME I.E.?  

    Hmmm… EXCLUDING THE U.S.GOVERNMENT FROM WHAT?

    MOST OF AMERICA’S CLOSEST ALLIES SIGNED UP FOR The CHINA-LED ASIAN INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT BANK (AIIB)

    Brazil’s president cancels US state visit over spying revelations …

    The Daily Telegraph

    Sep 17, 2013 – Brazil’s president cancels US state visit over spying revelations … attempt to salvage the trip, is a big blow to relations between the two biggest economies in the Americas.

    The trip was expected to be a platform for deals on oil exploration and biofuels technology, and Brazil’s potential purchase of fighter jets from Chicago-based Boeing Co.

    A defense contract worth more than $4 billion that Boeing is seeking for the sale of 36 F-18 fighter jets to the Brazilian Air Force could be the main victim of the spying affair.

    BRAZILIAN OFFICIALS HAVE SAID BRAZIL CANNOT BUY SUCH STRATEGIC AIRCRAFT FROM A COUNTRY IT CANNOT TRUST.

    Indeed, none of the BRICS,   BRAZIL, RUSSIA, INDIA, CHINA AND SOUTH AFRICA, have an interest in a collapse of the Euro, as their aim is to favour a truly multipolar world (e.g. “‘BRICS key to multipolar world’- Putin“, The BRICS Post, 22 March 2013). Their interest is more likely to put an end of a U.S.-led unipolar world and thus to the supremacy of the U.S. Dollar, upheld by the Washington consensus, as we have followed here (see “Of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Petrodollars“, 16 April 2015;  “Risks on the USD supremacy“, 27 March 2014, etc.).

    ————————————————————————

    WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange said:

     “Today’s publication further demonstrates that the United States’ economic espionage campaign extends to Germany and to key European institutions and issues such as the European Central Bank and the crisis in Greece. Our publication today also shows how the UK is assisting the US to spy on issues central to Europe. Would France and Germany have proceeded with the BRICS bailout plan for Greece if this intelligence was not collected and passed to the United States – who must have been horrified at the geopolitical implications?”

    “BRICS members advocate the creation of a more balanced and just system of global economic relations. The emerging markets are interested in long-term sustainable economic growth worldwide and reforms of the financial and economic architecture to make it more efficient,” the president said.

    RUSSIA, PUTIN ASSERTED, IS THE INITIATOR OF THE BRICS FORMAT AND CHAIR AT ITS FIRST SUMMIT IN YEKATERINBURG IN 2009.

    The Russian president approved the Concept of the Russian Federation’s Participation in the BRICS group yesterday.

    BRICS will lay down joint approaches to international crises, said Putin.

    “For the Durban summit, we are working on a joint declaration setting forth our fundamental approaches to pressing international issues, i.e. crisis in Syria, Afghanistan, Iran and the Middle East,” he said.

    Putin also denied a possible face-off with Western nations by saying, “We do not view BRICS as a geopolitical competitor to western countries or their organisations.”
