  • Politics is the Gizzard of Society

    “Civil Disobedience.” 1849.

    “Politics is the gizzard of society, full of grit and gravel, and the two political parties are its opposite halves – sometimes split into quarters – which grind on each other. Not only individuals but states have thus a confirmed dyspepsia.”

    Henry David Thoreau wrote the essay “Civil Disobedience in 1849” to discuss his criticisms of the American government. Thoreau writes about his dislike of the government’s power and rule over the people, his hatred of taxation, and his disbelief in a large government that interferes with the rights of the American citizen. This essay is used as a source to help determine Thoreau’s political stance because it provides accurate information about Thoreau’s personal and political beliefs.

    Henry D.Thoreau, would be considered a Republican in today’s political viewpoints

    Confirmed dyspepsia  by definition early 18th century: via Latin from Greek duspepsia, from duspeptos ‘DIFFICULT TO DIGEST.’

    RIGGED ELECTION SYSTEM?

    The  WA State Primary in 2016, is anything but, establishment campaign politicking as usual.

    Thanks to the media and the power of cyberspace technology , Americans, WA State,  voters have been informed by the candidates, we have watched the rally’s on TV, we  have watched the twitter’s, the tweets, face book and of course the establishment pundits.

    In the WA State Primary in 2016, it’s not about your voice.  IT’S  ABOUT YOUR VOTE.

    Just saying…

    “For what it’s worth … it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to do whoever, or whatever you want to do. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. You can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it.

    May 2, 2016 IT’S TOO LATE FOR A BLITZ OF THE USUAL  ESTABLISHMENT CAMPAIGN POLITICKING

    Historically, business as usual for a  politico establishment’s primary election campaign.  would be to find local volunteers, to find a meeting place, to have meetings, to train, to make thousands of phone calls to thousands of people, and, to post thousands of yard signs.

    April 30, 2016, 2:50 PM  I received a phone call from

    In fact I did send an email out April 30, 2016, to my contacts in WA State, for that specific purpose.  to find local volunteers, to find a meeting place, to have meetings, to train, to make thousands of phone calls to thousands of people, and, to post yard signs.

    He has requested a public meeting place for 25 Trump supporters to train them for making phone calls..

    The Washington Times
    Oct 7, 2015 – “Gun-free” zones are purported to forestall gun violence, but in practice they attract deranged gunmen like porch lights attract moths. Why?
    “GUN-FREE” ZONES are purported to forestall gun violence, but in practice they attract deranged gunmen like porch lights attract moths.
    WHY? BECAUSE DERANGED GUNMEN ARE CRAZY, NOT STUPID.
    An identified GUN-FREE ZONE literally advertises the ideal environment for COMMITTING MASS MURDER.
    Mass shootings are committed by mentally ill people to achieve a form of immortality, or by political zealots TO TERRORIZE THE PUBLIC.
    They know the more they kill, the more publicity they’ll get.
    THEY ALSO KNOW THE ONLY WAY THEY WILL BE STOPPED IS BY A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN, SO THEY CHOOSE TO ATTACK IN PLACES WHERE THEY KNOW NOBODY ELSE WILL BE ARMED.
    MOST MASS SHOOTINGS IN “GUN FREE ZONES” DON’T END UNTIL THE POLICE ARRIVE. KILLERS TYPICALLY HAVE
    “SEVERAL MINUTES TO SLAUGHTER”
    AS MANY VICTIMS AS THEY CAN WITHOUT FEAR OF INTERFERENCE.

    Charlie Hebdo shooting
    Main article: Charlie Hebdo shooting
    Police officers, emergency vehicles, and journalists at the scene two hours after the shooting at Charlie Hebdo
    The first and deadliest of the attacks occurred at 11:30 CET on 7 January 2015 at the Charlie Hebdo offices; a satirical magazine facility. Two gunmen, identified as Chérif and Saïd Kouachi, entered the building and fatally shot eight employees, two police officers, and two others, and injured eleven other people.[21] The perpetrators fled the scene following the shooting. The primary motive behind the shooting is said to be the Charlie Hebdo cartoons making fun of numerous Islamic leaders. The shooting received widespread condemnation internationally and a National Day of Mourning was held in France on 8 January.
    Fontenay-aux-Roses and Montrouge shootings
    On 7 January, a few hours after the Charlie Hebdo attack, a third assailant in the attacks, Amedy Coulibaly, shot a 32-year-old man who was out jogging in Fontenay-aux-Roses, in a park next to Coulibaly’s home.[22] The man suffered injuries to his arm and back and as of 11 January was in critical condition. Five shell casings were found at the scene. Coulibaly was linked to this shooting after the shell casings were compared to shell casings found at the Porte de Vincennes hostage crisis.[23]
    On 8 January, Coulibaly shot and killed municipal police officer Clarissa Jean-Philippe at the junction of Avenue Pierre Brossolette and Avenue de la Paix in Montrouge (a suburb of Paris), and critically wounded a street sweeper.[4][24]
    Dammartin-en-Goële hostage crisis
    Further information: Charlie Hebdo shooting § Dammartin-en-Goële hostage crisis
    On 9 January, the assailants of the Charlie Hebdo shooting, Chérif and Saïd Kouachi, went to the office of Création Tendance Découverte, a signage production company on an industrial estate in Dammartin-en-Goële. Inside the building were owner Michel Catalano and a male employee, 26-year-old graphics designer Lilian Lepère. During the siege, Lepère was told by Catalano to hide inside the refectory. Throughout the crisis, the perpetrators were unaware that Lepère was in the building. During the siege, a salesman named Didier went to the building on business, and Catalano left his office which he had been hiding in. Both were confronted by the perpetrators and asked to leave. Didier realized that they were terrorists and went to alert the authorities.
    Catalano returned to the building and helped one of the perpetrators who had been injured in earlier gunfire. He was allowed to leave after an hour. After this, Lepère, who was hiding in a cardboard box, alerted authorities about the incident. The siege ended after nine hours at 4:30 pm after police stormed the building and killed both assailants.[25]
    Porte de Vincennes siege
    Main article: Porte de Vincennes siege
    Also on 9 January, Coulibaly, armed with a Škorpion vz. 61 submachine gun, a vz. 58 assault rifle, and two Russian-made Tokarev pistols, entered a Hypercacher kosher supermarket at Porte de Vincennes in east Paris. He killed four people and took several hostages.[26] He had a female accomplice, speculated to be his wife, Hayat Boumeddiene.[27] Coulibaly was reportedly in contact with the Kouachi brothers as the sieges progressed, and told police that he would kill hostages if the brothers were harmed.[28]
    Police stormed the grocery store and gunned down Coulibaly.[29] Fifteen hostages were rescued.[30] Several people were wounded during the incident.[31] Lassana Bathily, a Muslim shop assistant born in Mali, was hailed as a hero in the crisis for risking his life to hide people from the gunman in a downstairs refrigerator room and assisting police after his escape.[32]

    Oct 7, 2015 – “Gun-free” zones are purported to forestall gun violence, but in practice they attract deranged gunmen like porch lights attract moths. Why?
    BAN GUN-FREE ZONES
    Deranged gunmen target places where no one can shoot back
    By Ken Blackwell – – Wednesday, October 7, 2015
    Would you put a sign outside your house saying, “Doors unlocked,” or “We’re not home”?

    ————————————————————-
    An underreported study released a year ago by the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC), the organization led by America’s leading gun policy expert John Lott, found that 92 percent of mass shootings since 2009 have taken place in designated gun-free zones.
    Or, as CPRC puts it, “Since 2009, only 8 percent of mass public shootings have occurred where civilians are allowed to defend themselves.”
    “Gun-free” zones are purported to forestall gun violence, but in practice they attract deranged gunmen like porch lights attract moths. Why? Because deranged gunmen are crazy, not stupid. An identified gun-free zone literally advertises the ideal environment for committing mass murder.
    Mass shootings are committed by mentally ill people to achieve a form of immortality, or by political zealots to terrorize the public. They know the more they kill, the more publicity they’ll get. They also know the only way they will be stopped is by a good guy with a gun, so they choose to attack in places where they know nobody else will be armed.
    Most mass shootings don’t end until the police arrive. Killers typically have several minutes to slaughter as many victims as they can without fear of interference.
    At least one mass murderer explained in his “manifesto” that he took armed resistance into account when choosing his target. According to CPRC, California killer Eliot Rodger, who murdered six University of California-Santa Barbara students in 2014, wrote, “I figured this would be the perfect day to attack Isla Vista, but after watching YouTube videos of previous Deltopia parties, I saw that there were way too many cops walking around on such an event. It would be impossible to kill enough of my enemies before being dispatched by those damnable cops.”
    Then there’s Canadian killer Justin Bourque, who murdered three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers in his attempt to start a revolution in New Brunswick in 2014. According to CPRC, “On his Facebook page, Bourque posted comics poking fun at how gun-free zones make these crimes possible.”
    CPRC also notes that the 2012 Aurora, Colo., “Batman” gunman, James Holmes, drove past seven more-nearby theaters playing the movie to launch his attack at the one theater identified as a “gun-free zone.”
    Holmes was able to murder 12 people and wound another 70 before he walked out of the theater and was arrested in the parking lot.
    In contrast, Colorado Springs New Life Church gunman Matthew Murray was shot by an armed volunteer security guard after killing just two people in a crowded church service in 2007.
    Many mass shootings have been ended quickly, with reduced loss of life, by people with concealed carry permits who acted before police could reach the scene. CPRC points to incidents at malls in Portland, Ore., and Salt Lake City, the Appalachian Law School in Virginia, and shootings in Pearl, Miss., and Edinboro, Pa.
    The best thing school administrators can do to protect their charges is to take those gun-free zone signs down, and start allowing faculty members and staff, vigorously trained in gun safety, to carry concealed weapons. The possibility of confronting an armed gym teacher or secretary — who knows who might be carrying? — would dissuade many a would-be mass murderer.
    It’s time to stop the slogans and the feel-good symbolism. We are blessed to live in a free society, but we’ll remain one only as long as the good guys have guns.

    Comment from Stephen Frank
    Cal Fire Continues to Steal $$ From Rural Property Owners
    September 18, 2015
    For years the people in rural California has been paying hundreds of dollars a year to Cal Fire, for fire protection. It is as if their regular taxes had nothing to do with the fire fighters hired by the State to protect them. These folks sued and it will take years before a court will hear the case and a dozen more years before all the appeals are done. Then Sacramento bureaucrats will have close to twenty years of using your money—think they will ever give it back? Maybe by increasing taxes on everybody to pay for their theft.
    “Like many rural Californians, the Millers grudgingly pay the state an annual fire prevention fee of one hundred seventeen dollars. It was passed four years ago to help the state close a budget deficit. And even as the Butte and other mega-fires threaten their homes, rural residents say the mistrust over the fee lives on. Les Miller calls it a state cash grab.
    Les Miller: “They want more money, so they find a way to get it. Everybody is concerned about fire. So, they call it a fire fee.”

    Megafires Don’t Melt Opposition To California Fire Fee
    By Chris Nichols, Capital Public Radio, 9/17/15
    Rural Californians are reeling from yet another destructive fire season.
    But that doesn’t mean they now support a controversial fire fee imposed several years ago by legislative Democrats and Governor Jerry Brown. Chris Nichols reports from Sacramento.
    Bags stuffed with Betsy Miller’s family photos and quilting fabric sit ready to go in her Sierra foothills home. Miller and her husband, Les, are retirees who live in Amador County. The Butte Fire forced them to evacuate last week. Now, they’re back home. But they’re not unpacking.
    Betsy Miller: “Fires have a way of coming back.”
    Betsy Miller says she loves quilting too much to have her fabric go up in flames.
    Betsy Miller: “I want to pick and choose what I’m going to finish, not have a fire pick and choose what I’m going to finish.”
    Like many rural Californians, the Millers grudgingly pay the state an annual fire prevention fee of one hundred seventeen dollars. It was passed four years ago to help the state close a budget deficit. And even as the Butte and other mega-fires threaten their homes, rural residents say the mistrust over the fee lives on. Les Miller calls it a state cash grab.
    Les Miller: “They want more money, so they find a way to get it. Everybody is concerned about fire. So, they call it a fire fee.”
    A dozen homeowners here interviewed this week say they remain opposed because the money doesn’t help fight fires. It only helps prevent them.
    The Brown Administration declined comment. But a recent state report says the fee raises about $75 million dollars a year for efforts like identifying evacuation routes and clearing brush.
    Signs thanking firefighters dot highways across the foothills. But that gratitude doesn’t extend to the state leaders who imposed the fee. Vincent Campa also fled his home during the Butte Fire.
    Campa: “I’ve also had people frustrated with the fee, not being able to afford it, living on fixed incomes.”
    A taxpayers group has sued the state, alleging the fee is an unconstitutional tax. But a final ruling could take years.

    One aspect of the WILDFIRE HISTORY of the Olympics seems certain–One cannot characterize the fire patterns of one period by knowing what it is in another.

    The occurrence of wildfires on the Olympic Peninsula is closely tied to climate and climatic history

    CLIMATE-Climatic History

    Even with our extensive network of climatic stations, modern technology and satellites, we still don’t understand the current climate very well.

    —————————————————————————————

    Our earliest evidence of fire in the Olympics comes from a bog in the Hoh River drainage. two fires which appeared to have burned in the lower Hoh River drainage between 7200 and 8700 years ago.

    ————————————————————————————–

    Three great burning periods occurred from 1300 to1750 during the Little Ice Age. The first occurred at the end of the Medieval Optimum and the beginning of the Little Ice Age.

    THIS WAS A VERY LARGE FIRE OR SERIES OF FIRES WHICH SWEPT WESTERN WASHINGTON AND BURNED AT LEAST HALF OF THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA. IT OCCURRED IN ABOUT THE YEAR 1308.

     5. THIS FIRE OR SERIES OF FIRES APPARENTLY BURNED MORE THAN ONE MILLION ACRES ON THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA, AND 3 TO 10 MILLION ACRES IN WESTERN WASHINGTON.

     —————————————————————————–

    An interesting aspect to these three great burning episodes is their correlation with the long-term sunspot cycle (Figure 6). Since the Medieval Optimum, there have been three extended periods when there were virtually no sunspots on the sun.

    These periods were the Wolf Sunspot Minimum from 1282 to 1342 (Stuiver and Quay 1980), the Sporer Minimum from 1416 to 1534 (Eddy 1977,Stuiver and Quay 1980) and the Maunder Minimum from 1645 to 1715 (Eddy 1976).

    THE THREE BURNING PERIODS AND THE FIVE BIGGEST FIRES (I.E. ABOUT 1308,1448, 1508, 1668, AND 1701) ALL OCCURRED DURING THESE THREE PERIODS OF VERY LOW SUNSPOTS.

    The correlation between low sunspot numbers and increased fires in western Washington is speculative.

    FIRE HISTORY page 19

    The occurrence of wildfires on the Olympic Peninsula is closely tied to climate and climatic history (see p. 32). It appears that the pattern of fires has been as variable as the pattern of past climates. Some periods have had many stand destroying fires, others have had almost none. Still other periods may have had a pattern of high fire frequency but low fire intensity.  Because of this variability and the many factors involved, one aspect of the fire history of the Olympics seems certain–one cannot characterize the fire patterns of one period by knowing what it is in another.

    I have COMPILED  a 5736 word document related to 

    WILDFIRE HISTORY beginning  between 7200 and 8700 years ago.

    SUMMARY OF RECENT FIRES: BEGINNING IN 1849

    Including…

    1951 The Great Forks Fire, also called the Port Angeles-Western (PAW) Fire covered about 33,000 acres (18,500acres of National Forest land) (Figure 8).In August, a fire started along the Port Angeles-Western right-of-way. The fire was contained, but by September 19th it flared up again. By the morning of September 20th it was raging out of control, carried by a strong east wind. At 2:30 pm everyone In the town of Forks was ordered to evacuate.The town was thought to be doomed. By evening the wind shifted, and an oncoming low pressure system helped stop the fire at the outskirts of town. Over 30buildings were burned, Including one mill, a motel, and 28 houses (Smith 1976, Campbell 1979).

    CLIMATE-Climatic History

    This is a time scale that spans millions of years

    THE CLIMATE OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST CANNOT BE RELIABLY RECONSTRUCTED FOR PERIODS EARLIER THAN ABOUT 25,000 YEARS AGO.

    THE CLIMATE CAN ALSO BE CHARACTERIZED BY HAVING A SUMMER DROUGHT.

    THIS RELATES TO THE HIGH FREQUENCY OF FIRES DURING THE SAME PERIOD

    ——————————————————————————————————-

    AND I HAVE INCLUDED THE HISTORIC CHANGES IN SEA LEVEL. (because it was there)

    AFTER THE RISE OF THE CASCADE AND OLYMPIC MOUNTAINS.

    The effect of this was for sea level to recede rapidly to a level contemporary with ice age sea level or about 400 feet below its present level. This occurred about 11,000 years ago

    Fact Sheet: H.R. 1732

    “The Regulatory Integrity Protection Act”

    Background Information

    · In April 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) proposed a rule that would redefine “waters of the United States” (WOTUS) under the Clean Water Act (CWA). The Agencies assert this rule merely “clarifies” the scope of federal CWA jurisdiction over waters in the United States. In reality, however, this rule goes beyond merely clarifying the scope of federal jurisdiction under CWA programs; it  increases the scope of the CWA’s jurisdiction over more waters, and undermines the role of the states as partners and co-regulators of the Nation’s waters.

    · The federal-state partnership Congress intended to establish under the CWA has been successful for the past four decades because of the recognition that not all waters need to be subject to federal jurisdiction and that states should have the primary responsibility of regulating waters within their individual boundaries.

    · Twice, the Supreme Court has reaffirmed this federal-state partnership when it told the Agencies that there are limits to federal jurisdiction under the CWA, and that they had gone too far in asserting their authority.

    · Nevertheless, the Agencies have proposed the rule that would redefine the scope of waters subject to federal jurisdiction under the CWA.

    · Substantial flaws in the process to develop the rule have plagued the rulemaking from the beginning. The sequence and timing of the actions that the federal Agencies have taken to develop this rule undermine the credibility of the rule and the process to develop it. Among other things, state and local governments and the regulated community all have expressed concern that the Agencies have failed to consult with them in the development of the rule.

    · There is concern that the Agencies’ push to unilaterally broaden the scope of the CWA threatens to undermine the federal-state partnership and erode state authority by granting sweeping new federal jurisdiction to waters never intended for federal regulation under the CWA.

    · This expansion of federal regulatory power will have serious consequences for the Nation’s economy, threaten jobs, invite costly litigation, and significantly restrict the ability of landowners to make decisions about their property and the rights of state and local governments to plan for their own development.

     

    Summary

    .· When developing the new proposed rule the Agencies must take into consideration all of the comments received on the rule, the economic analysis of the rule, and the connectivity study which was used as the basis for the rule. They must also

    solicit recommendations from and consult with state and local officials, stakeholders, and other interested parties on how to define “Waters of the United States” and prepare a new regulatory proposal that is consistent with Supreme Court rulings, the feedback from the public comments and recommendations from the state and local officials, stakeholders, and others.

    · The bill requires that the Agencies engage in outreach to stakeholders, including holding a federalism consultation with the states and local governments. The Agencies are instructed to seek to reach consensus with the states and local governments on defining “Waters of the United States,” maintain the Federal–

    State partnership in implementing the Clean Water Act, and take into consideration state and local input regarding geography, hydrology, and legal frameworks.

    · The bill requires that the Agencies engage in outreach to stakeholders, including holding a federalism consultation with the states and local governments. The Agencies are instructed to seek to reach consensus with the states and local governments on defining “Waters of the United States,” maintain the Federal–

    State partnership in implementing the Clean Water Act, and take into consideration state and local input regarding geography, hydrology, and legal frameworks.

    · The Agencies are also to consult with and solicit recommendations from stakeholders that represent a broad range of perspectives who could be impacted either directly or indirectly by the new rule. The Agencies are to promote transparency in these processes by making all of the communications, records and documents available to the public, and prepare a report that responds to the comments received and provides a detailed explanation of how the Agencies have used the comments and stakeholder processes in the new rule.

    history snippet

    Congress (2013-2014) H.R. 5078 addresses what is yet another example of a disturbing pattern of an imperial presidency that seeks to use brute force and executive action while ignoring Congress.

    The bill also requires the EPA and the Corps to engage in a federalism consultation with the states and local governments by

    Jointly consulting with relevant state and local officials to formulate recommendations for a consensus regulatory proposal that would identify the scope of waters to be covered under the Clean Water Act, and those waters to be reserved for the states to determine how to regulate.  The proposal would need to be consistent with the applicable rulings of the United States Supreme Court.

    Legislation to Prevent Federal Overreach in Regulation of Nation’s Waters Introduced by Committee Leaders

    http://transportation.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=387572

    Bill to be Considered at Committee Markup Next Week

    Washington, DC, Jul 11, 2014 | Jim Billimoria, Justin Harclerode (202) 225-9446

    Bipartisan legislation to uphold the federal-state partnership to regulate the Nation’s waters and prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers from implementing a rule that broadens the scope of the Clean Water Act and expands the federal government’s regulatory power was introduced in the House today by Transportation and Infrastructure Committee leaders.

     

    The Waters of the United States Regulatory Overreach Protection Act (H.R. 5078) is sponsored by U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, and is cosponsored by Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA), Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Chairman Bob Gibbs (R-OH), and a bipartisan group of additional Members of the House.  A Committee markup scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, July 16, 2014 will include H.R. 5078.

    Shuster & Gibbs Statement on Regulatory Integrity Protection Act

    VETO THREAT

    Washington, DC, Apr 30 | Jim Billimoria, Justin Harclerode (202) 225-9446

    Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) and Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Chairman Bob Gibbs (R-OH) released the following joint statement in response to the Administration’s veto threat of H.R. 1732, the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act, a bill that stops the Administration’s flawed Waters of the United States (WOTUS) proposed rule that would give the federal government unprecedented authority to regulate virtually any place that water flows in the United States:

    “The Administration’s proposed rule is opposed by at least 32 states.  The rule is opposed by the Nation’s large cities, smaller cities, counties, towns, and townships.  The rule is opposed by the majority of the regulated community – our farmers, homebuilders, businesses, manufacturers, and many others.  More than one million comments have been filed on this proposed rule, with approximately 70% of the substantive comments requesting the rule be withdrawn or significantly modified.  It’s important for the House to stand up for and recognize the concerns and rights of state and local governments, business owners and farmers, and landowners and private citizens.  The Administration’s veto threat is just the latest example of its determination to seize more power, federalize all waters, and regulate land use around the country.”

    H.R. 1732 requires the EPA and the Corps of Engineers to restart the rulemaking process, this time consulting with state and local governments and other stakeholders and taking into account their concerns.  The House may vote on the bill as soon as tomorrow.

    “Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.”

    I’ve spent  over 30 hours, since listening on C-SPAN, to the testimony from SCHULTZ,  KISSINGER  and ALBRIGHT , researching, digging up current and historical documents and facts. I have included snippets and comments from entities with very diverse and well informed backgrounds.

    HOW “COMPLICATED” IS  OBAMA U.S. SECURITY STRATEGY?

    My comment, Based on the understanding of a reasonable person?

    It could be  ESPECIALLY INSIDIOUS because of the domino effect and the feedback runaway and  wherein impacts between offending and offended countries  including  Radical Religious terrorism of sizable mass spalls off on smaller countries from allied support for the force of US military Support and weapons.

    The offending and offended country, Radical Religious entities, terrorists,  can then hit other countries, creating even more widespread refuges problems, genocide, killing of Christians, more beheadings of diversified individuals from international origin and capture, more demands for ransom, from all countries that support the war on terrorism  and if a  large allied defense  backing  US Military support, weapons, boots on the ground, sanctions and  intervention  were to occur?

    Such as between a the U.S.A. , Iran, Iraq, Israel, Afghanistan, Russia,  SYRIA,  and, we must  toss in China and Africa etc. too!   Or as the result of hostile actions in space, bombing, DRONES, then the resulting POLITICA L debris cascade, ESPECIALLY INSIDIOUS because development and proliferation of nuclear weapons could be used and could render the defense of  legal borders  and sovereignty of states  essentially impossible.

    WHAT’S SO COMPLICATED ABOUT THAT?

    THE US GOVERNMENT, OBAMA,  MUST NOT OFFEND ANY OF OUR ALLYS, OUR ENEMIES, TERRORISTS, RELIGIOUS ENTITIES, NATIONALITIES, OR  OFFEND ANY OF  THE LEADERS OF ANY OF THESE FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AT ANYTIME?

    “The difference between using an offending word and a non-offending word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

    YOU CAN PLEASE SOME OF THESE FOREIGN  ENTITIES  SOME OF THE TIME?

    Who knows what the future might bring? The nation seethes with ethnic, sectarian, tribal and ideological grievances.

    2009 ALBRIGHT’S  STRATEGY, DIPLOMACY AND FOREIGN POLICY

    May 19, 2006  (nearly nine years ago)

    Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright acknowledges that her new book “The Mighty and the Almighty” flies in the face of conventional wisdom on foreign policy.

    May 19, 2006 “DIPLOMATS IN MY ERA WERE TAUGHT NOT TO INVITE TROUBLE.

     AND NO SUBJECT SEEMED MORE INHERENTLY TREACHEROUS THAN RELIGION.”

    Albright sought to expand relations with AMERICAN MUSLIM LEADERS

    Decision makers need to do a better job of understanding RELIGION’S role in the world. She also suggests the government should use religious leaders to support and explain U.S. foreign policy.

    WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND ISLAM BETTER. I think we all have a tendency to generalize, to focus on the worst part of what is happening under the auspices, SO TO SPEAK, OF ISLAM. AND THAT’S EXTREMISM AND SOME OF THE VIOLENCE.

    History

    Iraq war shows limits of US power

    World affairs editor, BBC News

     March 19, 2008 More importantly, the war has shown the limits of American power. It is clear the United States can only manage to fight two small wars at a time.

    We have seen how hard it is for the Americans to deal with a few thousand lightly-armed volunteers

    Iraq and Afghanistan have stretched the US armed forces almost to breaking point. America after the invasion of Iraq is no longer the superpower it was before.

    On Monday, Vice-President Dick Cheney came to Baghdad and talked about “the phenomenal improvement in SECURITY“. That day more than 60 Iraqis were killed in bomb attacks.

    Germany’s 19th-Century Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck, said that GREAT POWERS HAD TO BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN THEY PUT THEIR MILITARY STRENGTH TO THE TEST. UNLESS THEY ARE OVERWHELMINGLY SUCCESSFUL, HE MEANT, THE PERCEPTION WILL BE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DEFEATED.

    MORE Albright 2009,

    Well, because I think that in looking at what was going on in the world, it was evident that religion and the force of religion and people’s interpretation of how they saw God, really is very much a part of international relations. Rather than keeping religion and religious leaders out of things, we need their help.

    We are dealing with very basic issues of human existence. And, everybody comes with a certain amount of their own history –thousands of years of culture and history.

    She believes President Bush has alienated potential allies around the world who disagree with his religious beliefs. “GOD IS ON OUR SIDE?” (I remember  the quote, and thought at the time, boy she’s right,  that is really going to set them off)

    Albright sought to expand relations with AMERICAN MUSLIM LEADERS

    Decision makers need to do a better job of understanding religion’s role in the world. She also suggests the government should use religious leaders to support and explain U.S. foreign policy.

    Our diplomats are very well trained and they are very capable. But, they have not really focused on religion per se as a subject of study. A Secretary of State has economic advisors and arms control advisors and environmental advisors. And so, I would advocate having religious advisors that are complementing all the other advisors.

    IT’S PERSONAL

     In 1999 FIVE BLOCKS FROM MY HOME in Port Angeles WA, one of “THOSE ISLAMIC EXTREMIST TERRORISTS” with a trunk full of explosives came into my town in the USA, across the international border from Canada.

    STRATEGY ? TERRORISTS? I asked Rep. Kilmer at Port Angeles WA Town Hall Meeting  about  Unmentionable Islamic extremist terrorists?

  • Confront? Question? Demand?

    Confront? Question? Demand?

    Why do  I  personally bother to attend and speak out at  Rep. Derek Kilmer’s Town Hall Meetings?

    Someone’s  GOT TO DO IT … speak  out publicly, in front of the local news media on THE FEDERAL UNMENTIONABLES.

    Someone’s  got to  confronted him with the evidence, ask the hard questions, compel him to face or consider something and  demand answers.

    As our elected rep. in WA DC Rep. Derek Kilmer is responsible to us.

    WHAT WILL  KILMER  DO IN RESPONSE TO

    THE FEDERAL UNMENTIONABLES?

    1. The ISIS terrorist attacks, 62% of Americans are VERY CONCERNED?

    2.  How Is he going to VOTE to prevent the Olympic Peninsula Electronic WAR GAMES. from destroying our entire coastline of public land? And, the entire coastline from Alaska to Mexico?

    3.   How Is he going to VOTE on the FINANCIAL immigration  Crisis? Dec 3, 2014 – Seventeen states filed a joint lawsuit in federal court Wednesday to try blocking President Barack Obama’s executive order on immigration.

    4.  How is he going to VOTE to reform the Obamacare debacle?

    5. Is he going to address the economic crisis created by SUE AND SETTLE?  (ESA)  taking of public and private land, in violation of the Administrate Procedure Act

    6. Is he going to demand JUSTICE from the JUSTICE DEPARTMENT?

    7.  Is he going to support the return of individual states Sovereignty, to the States, of the United States of America? So we can “MIND OUR OWN BUSINESS”

    8. Rep Kilmer put it in writing,  I’ll continue my fight during this Congress to put our government back in the hands of “We the People.”

    —————————————————————————————-

     OK, REP. KILMER, THIS IS WHAT WE THE PEOPLE WANT?

    WHAT REPRESENTATIVE FEEDBACK ARE WE GOING TO GET FROM YOU?

    Hey Gang

    Great turn out in Pacific Beach. I’d say a good 90% were no more convinced by the meetings end, that the health and safety for human, wildlife or the natural environment, the NAVY EA claims to be safe, really AREN’T proven to be. But who are we to question the Navy?

    Or is it even the Navy we should be questioning?
    Two highly qualified guests on both National Defense and the Environment were present speaking on behalf of the Public concerns as well as opinions of their own.

    PB was happy to welcome Craig B Hulet who has 35 years experience in International Relations,

    Military, Terrorism, Business and Security under his belt. He has been a consultant to Federal law enforcement DEA, ATF&E on Justice and Homeland Security for over 25 years and has written many books on the Geopolitical climate in these areas.

    Karen Sullivan biologist and environmental Science professional was also welcomed and shared the suspected/known dangers of this type of EW technology on ALL life itself.

    The technology that has never been proven safe but only assumed safe and

    still not properly tested. I can’t thank them enough for the informative comments and questions addressed to the Navy. You can view the 139 page PDF of Mr. Hulets scope 

    on the Navy’s 228 page EW Warfare PDF on his website. Just google Craig B Hulet or Karen Sullivan for websites and information pertaining to EW warfare on the Olympic Peninsula. READ these informative PDF’s.

    These contain points from some of the issues discussed at the meeting. I tried to forward the PDF’s but ran into All kinds

    of problems and a clogged up mail box that I can’t delete the sending process from.

    I hope I didn’t pass the mail problem on to all you too.

    Nothing in my outbox, no mail, but it just keeps sending and failing and sending and failing????????? geesh!

    Any way. The outcome of this meeting? I can only give my opinion.

    DOG and PONY SHOW by the Navy? YES. They did what they were

    sent out to do. Read from parts of the 228 page EA assessment and try to verify it’s solidity.
    The Navy stated,  they are up in the skies now! They have been there since the 1940’s. (what’s new?).  They’ve increased their air traffic and flight patterns since 2008 when they started talking about implementing these War plans here,

    with the USFS and the Committee of Armed Forces (that would be Ex-Dicks and

    currently Kilmer?). Yep mister wild lands man himself under the “green mask” was

    here to take land for the federal government in more ways then one, apparently 

    The green groups who secured his position in the House (for his push on Federal

    takeover of PUBLIC lands for locked up wilderness), got their wish. 2 days or so

    after the elections WILD OLYMPICS RE-surfaced.

    Waste no time Kilmer did his part! just days before the Navy’s Warfare Plans

    surfaced, with little to no public knowledge of it’s existence. Has the green party’s

    spiritual environmental plans been crushed?

     WOAH…. Nellie! Right in the thick of it! Gordon and his tam wearing team were

    there just like little statues in a row, as always.  Lining up with panic stricken faces.

    We warned green parties this was not about wilderness or the future of our forests,

    our natural resources or our children and grandchildren.

    It was about occupation and federal control to do ANYTHING and everything

    they deem fit. I think some are catching the clue.

    They must have forgotten  Wa. State has an “Obama Congress”.

    Starry eyed, the green parties believed they were the “chosen ones”. SURPRISE?

    Look who’s pushed them off their table? Their own congressman? 

    What? Never mentioning PUBLICLY EW warfare was already in the making long

    before choking out the worthless, Wild Olympics debacle? Does it matter in which way

    the Federal Government takes our PUBLIC, PRIVATE or RESOURCE lands away? I’m sure they will be very curious to ask congressman Wild Kid bilkhawk what the deal is. Never know when things will come back to kick ones ass (heehaw).
    By the end of the meeting. It was pretty much written in plain black and white.
    Done Deal – To Bad – We’re already here AND DON’T PLAN ON GOING ELSEWHERE

    nor did they give the impression they would be forced to. The Military will

    basically trump the wilderness laws and up their flight activity a said 10%.
    Since 2008 we’ve seen it take a 10% or more leap in air activity already.

    The Military would not discuss the current chemtrailing.

    Their response to that was “we’re here to address the EW only”.

    They were not qualified to speak on anything but the EW presentation.

    They brushed that off their shoulders quite easily. So perhaps another day,

    with another dollar we’ll have to ask for PUBLIC transparency on the military activity

    that is currently spraying our skies and manipulating the natural environment

    in our atmosphere.
    The Military reasoning for moving here was, to save government costs and

    to bring military families closer together with their servicemen.
    (REALLY? I thought that was part of what a military family was geared to compensate for? 

    The possibility of a family serviceman or woman being called upon at any time

    to go preform their duties? That’s what they sign up for. Has the military become

    whiners now too under Obama-man? 

    Perhaps obama feels our military should be

    equal to the same room and board the foreign invaders are receiving with every illegals,

    father, brothers, sons, mothers, daughters cousins and their strings of children

    are now getting for busting over our borders. Closer family accommodations.

    450 Jose’s a day? Pick your family we will pay)

    Sorry everybody I couldn’t help myself).

    Saving on Government costs?

     
    FYI – One growler jet burns up to 1000 gal of fuel per hour. 8 hours of exercises

    (cut down from their original 12) per day and estimated 11 exercises per week.

    88,000 Gal. of fuel per week? HELLO EMISSIONS!

    The Olympic pristine environment?

    MOVE IT ON OVER!

    Human carbon emissions? Stop breathing or pay a higher price for your airspace!

    The US Navy is here.
    Violations were found by the USFS failures

    to go through necessary approval processes including Nepa assessment. 

    The Navy had the Nepa EA permit processing guidelines approved only.

    No sound testing for using this technology just guidelines they must follow.

    Of coruse they said they would follow. But no proof can be presented, without production,

    so to speak.
    Last but not least a question asked to the Navy: What are the health and safety

    concerns you have taken to protect the officers that will be operating inside of

    these emitter trucks at very close range and doesn’t this present a greater danger

    to them?

    The Navy stated under the their strict frequency guidelines and airspace,

    where these mobile emitters will be directing these waves (away from the truck),

    they foresee no problem or danger. Now here’s the “Tell all”.
    Also these won’t be Navy officers, they will be CIVILIANS who will be inside

     

     

    the emitter trucks!!!!!! DID YOU HEAR THAT DIANNE????

    I heard C-I-V-I-L-I-A-N-S.

    Correct me if I’m wrong
    So in other words,  if there are any guinea pigs out there, will you please raise your hands?

    Put the young boys on the front lines and civilians in the electromagnetic emitter trucks.

    Sound about right? What difference does it make? They are just numbers on paper,

    no special significance, just numbers similar to the young Viet-Nam war casualties.


    Lots of Reading to do on this highly controversial Warfare training.

    Both Craig B Hulet’s PDF and Karen Sullivens PDF are well worth your time

    in understanding the issues on all sides of the spectrum.
    A BIG thanks to Grays Harbor Commissioner Wes Cormier

    for arranging the Meeting in Grays Harbor County that Congressman Kilmer

    had no time for and felt it insignificant.

    Very poor representation on Kilmers part, our fine member on the board of

    The Committee Of Armed Forces. Ever hear him mention EW during his

    “visiting the naval base” back patting appearances?
    Lots of Quinault Residents showed up! NICE TO SEE.
    Only so much can be accomplished at an “informational” public meeting.

    From my observation this “informational” meeting proved only, that much

    more discussion needs to take place, more knowledge brought forward from all

    sides and many undocumented legal processes need to be thoroughly applied for

    and also studied before this plan should be allowed to move forward and be fully

    implemented. The comment period needs to be extended through next year I feel.

    BIG issues should not be allowed to offer the general public only a LITTLE time frame

    in order to bring all the necessary agencies and proper channels together to provide

    honest factual representation of this “proposed action. If you catch the scent of dead fish

    in the air you’ll know where it’s coming from.

    I personally see a Military coupe over U.S. Citizens coming in and taking the coast

    and half of Washington State with it. As Craig Hulet said (in so many words) he has never

    known the Military to stop in growth, once boots are on the ground.

    Move it on over the big bad dogs moving in. Remember,  the Military takes it’s orders

    from who ????????
    I believe this goes far deeper than Dean the Bean Millett.

    He’s the stoolie. I do believe most all of the Peninsula and half the Seattle and Tacoma

    and beyond have big issues with Dean.
    FYI – The USFS was not their to represent their case on their permit proposal.

    Dodging tomatoes can be exhilarating. Dean must be hiding under Mother May I’s apron strings.


    Who controls the USFS?
    Who controls the DEPT of INTERIOR and DEFENSE.

    Do we even know anymore? for sure?

    This has all the signs pointing to Agenda 21 full speed ahead and I do believe

    the military is here to begin it’s UN implementation. The Navy is extending their

    presence here to do this under orders, to do the job they are assigned to do. 

    I can respect that. But BY WHO’S IRON FIST? and for WHO’S real purpose.

    Does the military even know anymore?

    I guess it’s not their job to know. They are our Armed Forces and take

    the orders from the (choke) commander in chief by way of DHS/DOD, when the commander

    himself is out at a golf game and unavailable to take responsibility for action on anything. 

    No questions are supposed to be asked, they just serve.


    I love our Military and do genuinely thank them for their service and dedication. What would

    we have done in the past without them? I myself haven’t enough guts that come anywhere

    near the courage and dedication it takes to put their lives on the line everyday during

    training or actual combat missions. I appreciate what they do but I don’t feel this is the

    place to do it.

    Who can we trust anymore during a time when the American people seem to be under siege

    by their own U.S. President? to be turned over into hands of the United Nations warlord

    banking cartel?

    My instincts tell me to DUCK! cause we are under fire

    Well Doug and Dianne were there and may have absorbed things a bit differently.

    I know Dianne’s not shy so if I’ve crossed my wires, she will correct me.

    So Dianne please share how you comprehended what was revealed from this meeting and where you foresee this all going.
    My next Digest will follow the Grays Harbor SMP  Dec 17 also at Pacific Beach.
    Cheers!
