    THE EXCHANGE VISITOR VISA (J-1) IS A NON-IMMIGRANT VISA ISSUED BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE THAT PROVIDES “COUNTLESS OPPORTUNITIES” FOR INTERNATIONAL CANDIDATES LOOKING TO TRAVEL AND GAIN EXPERIENCE IN THE UNITED STATES.

    ———————————————————-

    August 01, 2017 What ARAMARK did  with J-1 Visa Holders at Lake Quinault Lodge was just the tip of the iceberg. 16 JOBS TAKEN FROM OUR DEPRESSED LOCAL COMMUNITY WHERE FEW ARE WORKING.

    Same day,  QUESTIONING, What ARAMARK has done with J-1 Visa Holders at Lake Crescent Lodge?

    ——————————————————————————

    August 9, 2017 QUESTIONING EVERYTHING ARAMARK

     I stopped at the at the ONP Fairholme Store, Fairholme Campground … What has ARAMARK done  with J-1 Visa holders, at the fairly large ONP campground, ideally situated near the water and with direct access to Lake Crescent, an Olympic National Park Service?

    This is what happened about 12 noon on Wed August 9, 2017.

    A kid wearing a ARAMARK tee shirt was coming out the back door of the Fairholme Store.

    I said, Excuse me, do you have a restroom?

    He said, yes but it’s out of order.

    Are there any other restrooms?

    Yes, he said, in the campground, go up there (west) and turn right.

    I said, And pay $30.00 just to go to the bathroom?

    No, he said, you can just sneak in…..

    ———————————————————

    Really, I’LL just sneak into an ONP CAMPGROUND, in my car with  SIX TRUMP BUMPER STICKERS? (and not get a ticket?)

    ———————————————————–

    That did it… I asked, are you an American Citizen?

    He said YES.

    I mentioned foreign visa workers, Lake Quinault Lodge hired 16 of them?

    He said Do you mean J-1 Visa workers (So, I finally know what they are), what’s wrong with that?

    Wrong? I said, American citizens need work.

    He said, I never thought of that…

    I asked how many of them are there?

    The very nice kid said, OH,THERE ARE LOTS OF THEM.

    —————————————————————————-

    So, what can I DOCUMENT?

    The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program was created in 1961 as part of THE FULBRIGHT-HAYES ACT

    AND,  FOR OTHER PURPOSES 1961-1971-2017?

    THERE ARE 15 CATEGORIES OF THE J-1 VISA, OF WHICH CULTURAL VISTAS IS A DESIGNATED PROGRAM SPONSOR FOR THREE: INTERN, TEACHER, AND TRAINEE EXCHANGES.

    CULTURAL VISTAS ALSO HOLDS SPECIAL DESIGNATIONS THROUGH WHICH IT SPONSORS INDIVIDUALS PARTICIPATING IN THE IAESTE program AND THE Work, English Study, Travel (WEST) program. MOREOVER, IN 2015, CULTURAL VISTAS WAS AMONG SELECT ORGANIZATIONS TO BE DESIGNATED AS A SPONSOR OF THE NEW U.S.-Mexico Internship Exchange Program

    ———————————————————————————

    THE FULBRIGHT-HAYES ACT?

    THE ACT’S TITLE WAS DISARMINGLY SIMPLE: “…to amend the Surplus Property Act of 1944 to designate the Department of State as the disposal agency for surplus property outside the United States, its Territories and possessions, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.”

    The “OTHER PURPOSES” consisted of an ingenious marriage of necessity and IDEALISM. THERE WAS THE NECESSITY OF DIVESTING OURSELVES BY THE SALE ABROAD OF SURPLUS WAR PROPERTIES FOR NONCONVERTIBLE CURRENCIES RATHER THAN SCARCE DOLLARS.

    THE IDEALISM involved using a portion of the proceeds to enable Americans to learn and understand more about other countries, and the citizens of those countries to learn and understand more about us.

    An early history of the Fulbright Program,

    EXCERPTED FROM CAREER SENIOR FOREIGN SERVICE ( SES) OFFICER DONALD B. COOK’S HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM,

    written for the 1971 J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board’s annual report,

    The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program was created in 1961 as part of the Fulbright-Hayes Act, a public law written to “INCREASE MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE PEOPLE OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES THROUGH EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL EXCHANGES.” The U.S. Department of State has authority over the J-1 program.

    Under the Fulbright-Hays Act, the exchanges under the supervision of the Fulbright Scholarship Board were further extended geographically. BY 1971, THERE WAS SOME FORM OF ACADEMIC EXCHANGE WITH 100 COUNTRIES. Today, Fulbright operates in over 155 countries in all world regions.

  • Putting Down the Distracted Drivers Law?

    FACT: WA STATE DISTRACTED DRIVERS, HOLDING ELECTRONIC DEVICES, KILL AND INJURE PEOPLE, THE PUNISHMENT AND PENALTIES, BY LAW, SHOULD  BE THE SAME AS DUI LAWS.

    DUI or DWI Punishments and Penalties | Nolo.com

    www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/dui-or-dwi-punishments-penalties-30321.html

    Jail Time. In all states, first-offense DUI or DWI is classified as a misdemeanor, and punishable by up to six months in jail. That jail time may be increased under certain circumstances. … MANY STATES ALSO REQUIRE MINIMUM JAIL SENTENCES OF AT LEAST SEVERAL DAYS ON A FIRST OFFENSE.

    MANY STATES also require minimum jail sentences of at least several days on a first offense. Subsequent offenses often result in jail sentences of several months to a year.

    For a DUI or DWI that’s been classified as a felony — either because the driver killed or injured someone or because it’s the driver’s third or fourth DUI — jail sentences of several years are not uncommon. Again, this depends on state law, the facts of the case, and the discretion of the judge at trial.

    FINES IN ADDITION TO JAIL SENTENCES, courts can and do impose high fines for DUI or DWI. These range from $500 to as much as $2,000.

    DRIVER’S LICENSE PROBLEMS A DUI or DWI offender stands a good chance of having his or her license suspended for a substantial period of time (either by court order or mandate of the state motor vehicles department). FOR EXAMPLE, MANY STATES suspend a first offender’s license for 90 days; a second offender’s license for one year; and a third offender’s license for three years.

    IN MANY STATES IF YOU COMMIT THE SAME CRIME , KILLING AND INJURING PEOPLE, YOU DO THE SAME  TIME

    The Michael Bloomberg Nanny State In New York: A Cautionary Tale

    www.forbes.com/…/the-michael-bloomberg-nanny-state-in-new-york-a-cautionary-tal…

    May 10, 2013 – Since New York City Mayor Bloomberg announced the 20-ounce soda ban last fall, the controversy has garnered national attention. But, this is just the latest example of his attempt to expand the “nanny state” that has become New York City.

    ———————————————————————–

    Meet Bloomberg | Nanny State

    https://www.meetbloomberg.com/nanny-state/

    Bloomberg’s 12 years as mayor of New York City have been referred to as a “stereotypically laughable example of a liberal nanny state at its worst.

    ———————————————————–

    What Has Bloomberg Tried To Regulate Or Ban In New York City?

    A BETTER QUESTION MIGHT BE WHAT HASN’T HE TRIED TO REGULATE OR BAN.

    HERE’S THE LIST OF SOME OF THE ITEMS ON HIS NANNY AGENDA: ALCOHOL, CALORIE COUNTS, carbon, CELL PHONES, CIGARETTES, contraceptives, composting, fingerprinting, gasoline, NOISE, POLITICS, PRIVACY, SECOND AMENDMENT, SODA, SODIUM, Styrofoam, taxis, tanning, traffic congestion and trans fats.

     BLOOMBERG’S 12 YEARS AS MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO AS A

    “STEREOTYPICALLY LAUGHABLE EXAMPLE OF A LIBERAL NANNY STATE AT ITS WORST. HE “UNLEASHED A TSUNAMI OF PUBLIC HEALTH INITIATIVES” IN AN ATTEMPT TO REGULATE OR BAN DOZENS OF ITEMS AND BEHAVIORS FROM BIG GULPS TO CIGARETTES, from composting to trans fats.

    HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE THINKS THERE ARE TIMES WHEN GOVERNMENT  “SHOULD INFRINGE ON YOUR FREEDOM.” 

    BLOOMBERG DOESN’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, OR WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU.

    HE HAS ACTUALLY SAID,“YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT.

    BECAUSE WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT CHANGES WITH WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD,

     AND YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS FOR YOU.”

    And Bloomberg has spent his billions trying to be that somebody.

    Bloomberg’s ban on cell phones in schools simply showed how out-of-touch he was with today’s realities.

    The Complete List of Everything Banned by Mayor Michael Bloomberg

    DEC 31, 2013 – Michael Bloomberg leaves office tomorrow after 12 years as New York City’s mayor. No mayor in recent memory has added so much to a city. Or taken so much away. To remember him properly, here’s a list of everything Bloomberg banned during his time in office.

    —————————————————————————————-

    Is American freedom suffering  from being micromanaged  by  Nanny States,  government? THAT MAKE TOO MANY LAWS, about how people should live their lives, especially about, gun control, eating, smoking, or drinking, coffee, water, sugary water, energy drinks,  overprotective or interfering unduly with personal choices, life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    Like, driving to work holding your morning cup of Starbucks? Or eating a McDonalds  egg McMuffin in your car?

    Jul 27, 2017 Absolutely no one likes to be micromanaged. It’s frustrating, demoralizing, and demotivating. Yet, some states can’t seem to help …

    Down Right insulting,  WA State’s Micromanaging Nanny’s,   PASSING A LAW, THAT CONNOTES ANYONE DRIVING IN WA STATE (including tourists) CAN’T CHEW GUM AND DRIVE AT THE SAME TIME……..

    Connotes by definition: imply or suggest (an idea or feeling) in addition to the literal or primary meaning.

    Micromanagement is Mismanagement.

    Micro-managers are bad news for business and bad news for employees.

    They dis-empower staff, stifle opportunity and innovation, and give rise to poor performance.

    MICROMANAGEMENT IS JUST PLAIN BAD MANAGEMENT.

    Representative Terry Nealey (R-Dayton) and Representative Joan McBride (D-Kirkland) introduced the bills.  They would update the 1972 Public Records Act, INCLUDING FEES contained in the original law

    HB 1595, passed in the 2017 legislative session

    HB 1595 BECAME LAW ON JULY 23, 2017

    Chapter 304, Laws of 2017, sc. 3, amending RCW 42.56.120,  

    THE PROVISION OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS ACT (PRA) THAT GOVERNS AGENCY CHARGES TO REQUESTERS FOR PROVIDING COPIES OF PUBLIC RECORDS.

    According to a 2016 report from the Washington State Auditor’s Office, the number of requests increased by 36% from 2011 to 2015, and last year, state and local governments spent more than $60 million to fulfill 285,000 requests – a portion of which were automated “bot” requests from computers. Only 1% of the costs were recovered by the original law’s fee structure.

    These amendments in HB 1595 were designed to modernize this provision to reflect changes in the way agencies PROVIDE copies of records to requesters.

    and an agency must have in place either a statement following notice and public hearing that establishes the ACTUAL COSTS of producing records,

     or a rule that declares the calculation of actual costs would be “unduly burdensome.” Otherwise, an agency would not be able to impose copy fees on PRA requestors.

    HB 1595  IS A NEW WA STATE LAW EFFECTIVE  JULY 23, 2017

    WITH FEES BASED ON ACTUAL COST?

    Representative Terry Nealey (R-Dayton)  said actual costs could also be based upon a SEATTLE CITY DETAILED COST STUDY.

    “The city of Seattle estimates it will spend as much as $3 million this year for PRA request fulfilment, including electronic requests, but expects less than $10,000 in cost recovery,”

    Representative Terry Nealey (R-Dayton) added. “Our legislation would enable an agency to study its actual costs of making and preparing for delivery electronic copies of documents for a requestor,

    AND THEN CHARGE A MODEST FEE BASED ON COPYING COSTS.

    WE THINK THIS WILL REDUCE VEXATIOUS REQUESTS WHILE PRESERVING ACCESS WITH AN UPDATED FEE SYSTEM.”

    ——————————————————————————–

    AND, THEN CHARGE A MODEST FEE BASED ON ACTUAL COST?

    ————————————————————————————–

     Behind My Back | Fee Fie Foe Fum

    www.behindmyback.org/2013/10/26/fee-fie-foe-fum/

    Oct 26, 2013 – “Feefifofum” is the first line of a historical quatrain famous for its use in the classic English fairy … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fee-fie-foefum.

     ——————————————————————————–

    ECOLOGY is taking the latter approach, declaring by rule that it will be “unduly burdensome” to calculate actual costs, and has already filed a pre-proposal to begin the permanent rulemaking process.

    ECOLOGY will conduct this permanent rulemaking according to normal rulemaking procedures, but cannot complete it until some months after the requirements of HB 1595 take effect on July 23, 2017.

    ECOLOGY finds that it is in the general welfare and the public interest, and benefits requesters and the agency, to adopt the emergency rule in order to preserve AND UPDATE FEES in accordance with the legislatively adopted schedule.

    Without further action, this would create a period of months during which no statement or rule would be available to the public regarding PRA costs or the methods of calculating them, creating confusion and uncertainty regarding Ecology’s fee structure and ITS ABILITY TO CHARGE FEES.

    Because this appears to be contrary to the intent of HB 1595 and the PRA,

    ECOLOGY intends to adopt its declaration initially by emergency rule, to avoid confusion and to remain in compliance with the PRA, as amended.

    This declaration will allow Ecology to utilize the statutory default fee schedule created by the Legislature in the 2017 amendments starting on July 23, 2017, the date the legislation goes into effect, and to be in full compliance with the PRA, as amended.

    ————————————————————————————–

    ECOLOGY WILL CONDUCT THIS PERMANENT RULEMAKING ACCORDING TO NORMAL RULEMAKING PROCEDURES, BUT CANNOT COMPLETE IT UNTIL SOME MONTHS AFTER THE REQUIREMENTS OF HB 1595 TAKE EFFECT ON JULY 23, 2017.

  • This is Not an EPA Matter?

    This is Not an EPA Matter?

    SO? IS THIS JUST AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM  LOOKING FOR A RESPONSIBLE PARTY?

    Documented for the record

    May 15, 2017 3:00 PM, I called and spoke with Bobbie at the Seattle office of the EPA 1-800-424-4372

    I warned EPA Bobbie of the eminent danger of a environmental disaster that will be caused when a house located the end of NE Buchanan Dr, in Clallam County WA, falls over the cliff onto our Rains Sr. Trust shoreline property and directly into the Straits of Juan De Fuca,  designated  waters of statewide significance.

    EPA Bobbie said, it was a unique problem, took my name and phone number and promised to return my call within an hour.

    EPA Bobbie returned my call, she called this number 1-360-4450, and said someone (no name) would call me.

    EPA Bobbie said, a direct quote  “THIS IS NOT AN EPA MATTER”  and that she had spent an hour of her time trying to help ME.

    I called the number, (no name) Jordan is  an employee of Jefferson County. Obviously, we agreed she CAN NOT help me with a Clallam County WA, ENVIRONMENTAL MATTER.

    IS THIS JUST AN EPA MATTER  LOOKING FOR AN EPA RESPONSIBLE PARTY SOLUTION?

    The solution is easy, tear down the house before it falls over the cliff.

    This is not a trick question….

     If nobody, takes action, when the house falls into Straits of Juan De Fuca  and an environmental disaster becomes a reality, who will be the responsible party?

    Will Clallam County Commissioners, the DCD,  be held responsible? Will Clallam County hard working citizens foot the bill to clean up the environmental mess?

     Will cleaning up the crushed pieces of the house after it falls over the 200 ft  cliff be an EPA  water cleanup recovery in the Straits of Juan De Fuca? (paid for by Clallam County WA taxpayers?)

    ———————————————————————

    Documented for the record

    The EPA has been put on notice and warned about this ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM, as have, WA DC Rep Kilmer, WA State Reps in Olympia, Clallam County Commissioners and the director of DCD, and as usual to my email list.

     note:  this email warning has been sent to my WA State Rep Derek Kilmer via his “email me”

    Tax money to the Iranian military

    snippet

    This is a bigger issue than a single payment, no matter how large. The cash money sent to Iran changes our historic foreign policy of isolating Iran as the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, and it sets a new precedent for sending money to foreign governments from the long-established Judgment Fund. To deal with the long-term precedent, I authored a bill to limit the future use of THE JUDGMENT FUND and make sure no future president can transfer American tax dollars to a nation that sponsors terrorism.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – This morning, U.S. Senators Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.) introduced legislation to track taxpayer-funded payments to foreign nations and prevent harmful transactions from happening in the future. The bill, known as the

    JUDGMENT FUND TRANSPARENCY AND TERRORISM FINANCING PREVENTION ACT,

     expands upon legislation that Senator Fischer introduced last year with Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colo.). It would require a public accounting of the taxpayer funds that are distributed out of the Judgment Fund.

    Senator Fischer released the following statement:

    “Hardworking American families have every right to see exactly how their tax dollars are being spent, especially when used to fund hostile enemies of the United States. That is why I’m proud to join Senator Lankford to offer a new version of the Judgment Fund Transparency Act, which includes greater oversight of taxpayer-funded payments to foreign nations. More transparency leads to greater accountability and through this bill, we can hold our government to task for their actions. We should not be in the business of providing funds to state sponsors of terrorism.”

    Senator Lankford released the following statement:

    “One year after the Iran Nuclear agreement, we still have the same concerns with Iran as before. Their secrecy is disconcerting and they continue to be spread terrorism and a radical Islamist ideology around the region. President Obama’s billion-dollar payment to Iran in January, which we now know is funding Iran’s military expansion, is an appalling example of Executive Branch governance.

    “The bill Senator Fischer and I have introduced will provide the American public with necessary details of this dangerous billion-dollar payment and ensure that no taxpayer dollars are ever again used to fund the extremist and violent ambitions of rogue nations like Iran.  Subsidizing Iran’s military is perhaps the worst use of taxpayer dollars ever by an American president.”

    The Judgment Fund, which is administered by the Treasury Department, is used to pay for certain court judgments and settlements against the federal government. Between 2013 and 2015, the federal government paid more than $10 billion in Judgment Fund awards with scant transparency or oversight.

    This fund has continued to come under increased scrutiny, as it is allowed to allocate unlimited funds to cover government liability in lawsuits and is not subject to the annual appropriations process. The Judgement Fund Transparency Act would provide hardworking taxpayers and members of Congress the ability to see exactly how tax dollars are being spent on these litigation expenses.

    In February of 2015, The Washington Examiner published an editorial praising Senator Fischer’s bill:

    “Senators Cory Gardner, R-Colo., and Deb Fischer, R-Neb., are co-sponsoring a bill that would fix this problem and bring transparency to the Judgment Fund, the treasury account that pays judgments and settlements to plaintiffs. The Judgment Fund Transparency Act is just two pages long. It simply requires the Treasury Department to make public through its website the details of every payment the fund makes… The bill deserves broad bipartisan support. For anyone who believes in government transparency, it’s a no-brainer.”

    Policy Analysis No. 65

    The Continuing Failure of Foreign Aid 1946-2016

    By James Bovard

    January 31, 1986

    Executive Summary

    For 40 years, U.S. foreign aid has been judged by its intentions, not its results. Foreign aid programs have been perpetuated and expanded not because they have succeeded, but because giving foreign aid still seems like a good idea. But foreign aid has rarely done anything that countries could not have done for themselves. And it has often encouraged the recipient governments’ worst tendencies—helping to underwrite programs and policies that have starved thousands of people and derailed struggling economies.

    In agriculture, in economic planning, in food assistance, U.S. foreign aid has routinely failed to benefit the foreign poor. In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the U.S. Agency for International Development (AID) has dotted the countryside with “white elephants”: idle cement plants, near-empty convention centers, abandoned roads, and—perhaps the biggest white elephant of them all—a growing phalanx of corrupt, meddling, and overpaid bureaucrats.

    Since 1946, the United States has given over $146 billion in humanitarian assistance to foreign countries. In 1985, the United States provided over $10 billion in non-military aid abroad, ranging from free food to balance-of-payments support to project-assistance and population-planning programs. AID employs over 4,500 employees to administer these programs, many of which have expanded rapidly under the Reagan administration.

    Americans have a long tradition of generously aiding the victims of foreign earthquakes, famines, and wars. Before World War II, private citizens provided almost all of America’s foreign assistance. After World War II, the Truman administration decided that a larger, more centralized effort was necessary to revitalize the war-torn economies of Europe. Economic planning was the rage in Washington in the late 1940s, and Marshall Plan administrators exported their new-found panacea. The Marshall Plan poured over $13 billion into Europe and coincided with an economic revival across the continent. The best analysis indicates that Europe would have recovered regardless of U.S. aid, and that the clearest effect of the Marshall Plan was to increase the recipient governments’ control of their economies.[1]

    The apparent success of the Marshall Plan led Truman in 1949 to propose his Point Four Program to provide a smaller version of the Marshall Plan for poor countries in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. Truman declared that Point Four would be “a bold new program for making the benefits of our scientific advances and industrial progress available for the improvement and growth of undeveloped areas.”[2]

    In the 1950s, the Eisenhower administration downplayed humanitarian aid, concentrating on security assistance to strategic allies. In 1954, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey pushed the Food For Peace program through Congress, but that was the largest innovation in economic assistance during the decade. When John F. Kennedy took the helm in 1961, the stage was set for a huge expansion of foreign aid. In a special message to Congress, Kennedy called for “a dramatic turning point in the troubled history of foreign aid” and proclaimed that the sixties would be the “decade of development”—“the period when many less- developed nations make the transition into self-sustaining growth.” Kennedy placed heavy stress on the willingness of recipient governments “to undertake necessary internal reform and self-help.”[3] In 1961, AID was created, and the U.S. foreign aid bureaucracy came into its own.

    Despite Kennedy’s stress on requiring reforms from recipient governments, foreign aid routinely went to countries pursuing policies destined to turn them into permanent economic cripples. Partly as a result of a widespread perception that such aid was usually wasted, it consistently ranked as one of the least popular government programs with the American public.[4]

    From the mid-sixties to the early seventies, South Vietnam received the bulk of U.S. economic aid. In 1973, Congress, concerned about the ineffectiveness of U.S. aid, heavily revised aid-program goals to focus more on social services and less on economic development.

    When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, many observers expected a thorough reform of U.S. foreign aid. Reagan declared in a major speech before the annual meeting of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, “Unless a nation puts its own financial and economic house in order, no amount of aid will produce progress.”[5] Since then, despite Reagan’s tough rhetoric on requiring reform from recipient governments, little has changed. American foreign aid still suffers the same problems it did when Kennedy took office in 1961. Despite countless reforms, foreign aid is still a failure.

    Instead of breaking the “endless cycle of poverty,” foreign aid has become the opiate of the Third World. AID and other donors have encouraged Third World governments to rely on handouts instead of on themselves for development. No matter how irresponsible, corrupt, or oppressive a Third World government may be, there is always some Western government or international agency anxious to supply it with a few more million dollars. By subsidizing political irresponsibility and pernicious policies, foreign aid ill serves the world’s poor.

    American foreign aid has often harmed the Third World poor. In Indonesia, the government confiscated subsistence farmers’ meager plots for AID-financed irrigation canals. In Mali, farmers were forced to sell their crops at giveaway prices to a joint project of AID and the Mali government. In Egypt, Haiti, and elsewhere, farmers have seen the prices for their own crops nose-dive when U.S. free food has been given to their countries.

    AID cannot be blamed for all the mistakes made in the projects it bankrolls. However, by providing a seemingly endless credit line to governments regardless of their policies, AID effectively discourages governments from learning from and correcting their mistakes. Giving some Third World governments perpetual assistance is about as humanitarian as giving an alcoholic the key to a brewery. Good intentions are no excuse for helping to underwrite an individual’s—or a country’s— self-destruction.

    Foreign aid programs appear to be incorrigible. For 35 years, American foreign aid policymakers seem to have learned nothing and forgotten nothing. U.S. foreign aid projects routinely repeat the same mistakes today that were committed decades ago. One telltale ironic report title from the General Accounting Office says it all: “Experience—A Potential Tool for Improving U.S. Assistance Abroad.”[6]

    This study focuses on the failure of U.S. humanitarian aid to achieve its goals. It begins with a close examination of one of the most popular foreign aid programs, Food for Peace. Then comes a review of AID’s record in resurrecting the economies of Central America, followed by an analysis of AID’s role in African agricultural development. AID’s achievements in Egypt and Indonesia are then reviewed, followed by an analysis of AID’s role in spurring the development of private business and capitalism in poor countries. The study concludes with an analysis of why U.S. foreign aid has failed in the past and why it will most likely fail in the future.

    Why U.S. Foreign Aid Fails

    May 31, 2013

    For upwards of 50 years the U.S. federal government has been sending developmental aid to other countries trying to create vibrant economies. Yet, there have been no recorded monumental successes with the use of developmental aid. Based on the high standard of living enjoyed in the United States, you might think that the U.S. government would know how to replicate that standard of living, but they don’t, says Christopher Coyne, F. A. Harper professor of economics at the Mercatus Center.

    In the minds of many first world leaders, development of impoverished nations does not come from going through the same long process first world countries did. Instead, it contains a top-down approach that promises great things like ending poverty. However, there are multiple reasons why state-provided aid cannot bring nations out of poverty:

    • Policymakers do not have access to the knowledge needed to allocate scarce resources to their best uses. In his critique of socialism in the 1930s and 1940s, Nobel Laureate Friedrich Hayek made this exact point, noting that even the most qualified and benevolent planners lack the knowledge to produce even the most basic items in a cost-effective manner.
    • Aid creates the incentive for already dysfunctional governments to remain ineffective. A cross-country study by Stephen Knack of the World Bank found that foreign aid undermines the quality of political institutions in recipient countries through weakened accountability of political actors, more corruption, greater chances of conflict, and a weakening of the incentive to reform inefficient institutions and policies.
    • Government agencies tend to focus on spending money as quickly as possible on observable outputs to signal their importance and the need for more money. In the absence of clear lines of accountability, money is often wasted.

    The current operations of aid to foreign countries fail because there is not enough supervision as to where the funds go, or how the funds are spent specifically. The real solution to these problems is the guarantee of person liberty and property for citizens in those impoverished nation. Human nature will do the rest.

    American foreign aid still suffers the same problems it did when Kennedy took office in 1961. Despite countless reforms, foreign aid is still a failure.

    INDEED U.S. FOREIGN AID HAS FAILED IN SYRIA AUG 26, 2016

    AFTER MORE THAN $5.1 BILLION IN U.S. TAXPAYERS DOLLARS FOR WASHINGTON DC’S CONTINUING DIPLOMATIC POLICY FOR HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE TO SYRIA, OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR, SINCE THE START OF THE FIVE-YEAR CIVIL WAR.

    The American people are witness to, and paying for the Continuing Failure of WASHINGTON DC’S Foreign Aid policy 1946-2016.

    AS TRUMP SAID,  ESTABLISHMENT POLITICIANS HAVE BEEN MAKING VERY BAD DEAL FOR AMERICA, FOR 70 YEARS.

    VOTE FOR DONALD J. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN 2016

    WHY?

    Because, You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else. Winston Churchill


  • America’s Prefabricated Government

    America’s Prefabricated Government

    Trump calls it rigged… I agree with Trump

    We the people have a totally  dysfunctional divided  U.S. Congress, the newly elected are lead down the rose garden path by self serving, long time, establishment  career politicians, on both sides of the isle, with  a total of 535 Members of Congress. 100 serve in the U.S. Senate and 435 serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo Put ’em  together and what have you got?

    Politically Correct?

    As documented on C-SPAN Congressmen’s  videotaped  speeches

    Gibberish or Jibberish and gobbledygook refer to speech or other use of language that is nonsense, or that appears to be nonsense. It may include speech sounds that are not actual words, or forms such as language games or highly specialized jargon that seems non-sensical to outsiders.

    Donald J. Trump and Ben Carson are outsiders

    ————————————————————–

    Is  Politically Correct speaking in Congress just  a Globalization MANTRA?

    The earliest mantras are at least 3000 years old.

    IN MORE SOPHISTICATED FORMS, MANTRAS ARE MELODIC PHRASES WITH SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS SUCH AS A HUMAN LONGING FOR TRUTH, REALITY, LIGHT, IMMORTALITY, PEACE, LOVE, KNOWLEDGE, AND ACTION.

    Oops…. INSIDER, Hillary’s Politically Correct  Globalization MANTRA?

    THE DEMOCRATS, POLITICALLY CORRECT,  MELODIC Globalization PHRASES WITH SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS OF PEACE AND LOVE,  will find a way?

    IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TRUMP HAS A MORE SOPHISTICATED AMERICANIZATION PLATFORM SUCH AS A HUMAN (VOTERS) LONGING FOR TRUTH, REALITY, KNOWLEDGE, AND ACTION.

    LET’S DO A FACT CHECK  ON LYING’ HILLARY’S  TRUTH, REALITY,  AND ACTION.

    INCLUDING, THE TOTALITY OF A LYING’ HILLARY’S 30 YEARS OF POLITICAL ACTIONS INCLUDING LYING’ HILLARY’S CONDUCT DURING SUCCESSIVE ACTIONS IN BENGHAZI , AND LYING’ HILLARY’S  PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER, SEEN AS BRINGING UPON LYING’ HILLARY’S INEVITABLE RESULTS, GOOD OR BAD,

    LYING’ UNSOPHISTICATED HILLARY GOT AWAY WITH ALL OF IT

     INDEED THE SUM OF A HILLARY’S ACTIONS IN THIS 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE WITH TRUMP AND HILLARY’S PREVIOUS ACTIONS AS THE SECRETARY OF STATE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SHOULD BE VIEWED AS DECIDING LYING’ HILLARY’S  FATE IN FUTURE EXISTENCE IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

    SOUNDS LIKE HILLARY’S GOT KARMA?

    WOW, a  US Congressman actually wrote a thing called HOW CONGRESS WORKS?

    ———————————————————————————-

    Many a Truth about HOW CONGRESS WORKS is spoken in Jest… You decide…

    “I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.” — Ronald Reagan

    “Can any of you seriously say the Bill of Rights could get through Congress today? It wouldn’t even get out of committee.”

    “I don’t know what’s wrong with my television set. I was getting C-Span and the Home Shopping Network on the same station. I actually bought a Congress man.”

    “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”

    ” Congress is so strange. A man gets up to speak and says nothing. Nobody listens—and then everybody disagrees.”

    ” Congress consists of one third, more or less, scoundrels; two thirds, more or less, idiots; and three thirds, more or less, poltroons.” (by definition poltroons are utter cowards)

    “The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”

    “Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.”

    Mark Twain: “I was very particular about the kind of job I wanted. I didn’t want to work. So I went over to the Congress, that Grand Old Benevolent National Asylum for the Helpless, and I reported on the inmates there.”

    “Of course, the truth is that the Congress persons are too busy raising campaign money to read the laws they pass. The laws are written by staff tax nerds who can put pretty much any wording they want in there. I bet that if you actually read the entire vastness of the US tax code, you’d find at least one sex scene. (“Yes, yes, YES!” (some content deleted as  too explicit)  moaned, again and again depreciated her adjusted gross rate of annualized fiscal debenture…)”

    Many a true word is spoken in jest – meaning and origin.

    Full unedited comment…

    By Conservative “Lee” on June 26, 2014

    Having lived on or near Indian reservations most of my 70 years, I find this book one of the most refreshing of modern day reads

    as it places the spotlight exactly where it needs to be placed.

    THOSE IN CONTROL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

     ARE USING RESERVATIONS AND THE TRIBES THEMSELVES AS NOTHING MORE THAN TOOLS

     TO ACHIEVE WHAT THE GOVERNMENT MOST DESIRES IN THIS DAY AND AGE, THAT BEING THE TOTAL SUBJECTION OF PEOPLES.

    Sadder still is that the tribes leadership are playing right into the hands of the feeders from Washington.

     The Indian people who are American citizens have been beaten into submission so often they are at the point where they actually believe that this is their lot in life and while they will strike out at non-Indians around them and place blame on their neighbors

     they seem unable to recognize who the actual enslaver is DUE TO THE CONSTANT STREAM OF LIES BEING FORCED UPON THEM BY THEIR ALLEGED BENEFACTORS,  THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND TRIBAL LEADERS.

    A more factual book I have never read, and you can be certain of one thing, this book will never be placed in the hands of tribal citizens by anyone connected in government be it tribal, state or Federal because these governments working hand in hand, can ill afford the opening of a can of worms titled, “Going to Pieces,”

     AND WORSE STILL IS THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ON THE WHOLE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE

     which is truly sad given the numbers of times we as citizens have gone to war in foreign lands because we were told that those people were being enslaved and many of those in the uniform of the United States were Indians yet somehow when they return home they forget what it was they went and fought for.

    As  the Clallam County Designated Chairperson for the Trump Campaign, and as a concerned American Grandmother, it is necessary for me to continue my aggressive, Pearl Revere red flag warnings in cyberspace…

    America is “Going to Pieces” behind our backs, behind closed doors.

    JUN 2, 2016 – IT ONLY TOOK TWO SENTENCES FOR EDWARD SNOWDEN TO EVISCERATE HILLARY CLINTON OVER HER USE OF A PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER WEDNESDAY MORNING.

    The former National Intelligence Agency contractor Edward Snowden could face decades in prison for breaking laws governing THE HANDLING OF CLASSIFIED GOVERNMENT INFORMATION, and he expressed confusion on why Hillary Clinton doesn’t share his fate

    CLINTON HAS REPEATEDLY CRITICIZED SNOWDEN FOR LEAKING CLASSIFIED NSA DOCUMENTS AFTER HE FLED THE COUNTRY IN 2013, THE FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE 

     CLINTON: “I think turning over a lot of that material—INTENTIONALLY OR UNINTENTIONALLY, because of the way it can be drained—gave all kinds of information, not only to big countries, but to networks and terrorist groups and the like.”

    It only took two sentences for Edward Snowden to eviscerate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server Wednesday morning.
