    “This is a money digging world of ours;

    and, as it is said,there are more ways than one to skin a cat,’

    American citizens, taxpayer’s billions of dollars, contributed to the Legal Mandate GlobalChange.gov made into a law by the U.S. Congress, And enabled by the loose purse strings in the U.S. Senate.

    OK, I admit I called it  BLAH.. BLAH… BLAH… but, you know me…

    The rest of the Story by Pearl Harvey

    JAN 17, 2017

    The outgoing Barack Obama administration announced

    A CONTRIBUTION OF HALF A BILLION DOLLARS

    TO THE UN GREEN CLIMATE FUND,

    JUST THREE DAYS BEFORE DONALD TRUMP

    TOOK OVER THE WHITE HOUSE.

    —————————————————————-

    Trump April 2016,  Let me ask America a question:

    How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?

    ——————————————————————————–

    If  the 193 members of the United Nations decide they want global something, protection by NATO since 1949 for example, require global anything, not limited to global research, they decide what they want, they vote and they send the bill to American taxpayer’s.

    ——————————————————————————–

    THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION  HAS COMMITTED

    THE U.S.TO GIVING $3 BILLION TO THE U.N. GREEN CLIMATE FUND.

    —————————————————

    THE UNITED NATION’S POWER OVER THE AMERICAN PURSE?

    ————————————————————–

    My understanding, First the U.S. Senate appropriates the American  taxpayer’s money and then the Senate gives the American taxpayer’s money to the  U.S. Congress, and then by hook or by crook the money is divided up and given to somebody, or something  in the United Nations, for whatever.

    ——————————————————————————

    May 7, 2017 How’s this financially support system for the 193 United Nations working out for American Taxpayers?

    IVANKA TRUMP IS  REVIEWING  CLIMATE CHANGE?

    Rex Tillerson, said he wants the US to keep “a seat at the table” regarding global warming.

    23 hours ago – Ivanka Trump to Review Climate Change as US Considers Paris … Though US President Trump’s inclination has been to leave the agreement, …

    “Climate change is a convenient horse for elites to ride in the implementation of a new world order. Debating the science of climate change is beside the point. There are heated views on both sides; some science is settled, some not. Global elites treat the debate as settled to mask a larger project. For elites the global problem once defined conjures a global solution. Climate change is the perfect platform for implementing a hidden agenda of world money and world taxation.”

    DONALD J. TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

    THERE IS MORE THEN ONE WAY TO SKIN A CAT

    The earliest version of the saying in this particular form is in the book “Way down East; or, Portraitures of Yankee Life” by Seba Smith circa 1854, in which he wrote

    “This is a money digging world of ours;

    and, as it is said,there are more ways than one to skin a cat,’

    so are there more ways than one of digging for money.”

    PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS OPTIONS

    THERE IS MORE THEN ONE WAY TO DRAIN THE SWAMP

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP

    We are Informed. Silent-Angry and Voting

    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 our small county,  

    We are informed. We are Silent – We are Angry and We are Voting

    ALL OF THE LOCAL PEOPLE I HAVE SPOKEN WITH PRIVATELY, HAVE ALREADY DECIDED WHO THEY ARE VOTING “FOR”…..

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

    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

    Senator Benton is the WA State Chairman for Trump

    Certainly, I would be delighted to participate locally  in promoting my candidate for the primary.

    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.

    ——————————————————————————–

    April 30, 2016, 4:02 PM I sent out this email

    Subject: Senator Benton called me.

    ————————————

    Senator Benton called me at 2:50 PM 
    He is the WA State Chairman for Trump.

    He is looking for a Clallam County Trump Chairperson.

    Do you know someone that is a Trump supporter and would be interested in participating?

    Please email or call me (360) 417-9452

    Do you have a LIST of Trump local supporters?

    Short notice,  BUT…. We have a message to get out ASAP.

    The meeting can be arranged for Wed. May 4, or Thurs May 5, 2016

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

    Can you help me find a free public meeting place?

    I’ll keep you posted..

    Trump will be in WA State in Spokane and at Boeing field for rally’s.

    Thank you

    Pearl

    —————————————————————————————–

    May  2, 2016  Keeping you posted

    THE ONLY RESPONSE TO MY EMAIL WAS SILENCE.

    “Go to where the silence is and say something.”

    Indeed, We are informed. We are Silent – We are Angry and We are Voting

    AND, WE HAVE ALREADY DECIDED WHO TO VOTE FOR.

    IN THE WA STATE PRIMARY IN 2016, IT’S NOT ABOUT YOUR VOICE.  IT’S  ABOUT YOUR VOTE.

    TO BE SILENT IS TO SAY SOMETHING

     TO VOTE IS TO DO SOMETHING


  • The Silent Majority Defined 1933-1968-2016

    The Silent Majority Defined 1933-1968-2016

    THE “SILENT MAJORITY,” IS A PHRASE WITH A LONG, LONG HISTORY

    IN 2016 THE HISTORY AND ORIGIN OF THE”SILENT MAJORITY” MUST BE DEFINED AND MADE PERFECTLY CLEAR.

    (for those that think it just started 45 years ago)

    ———————————————-
    Defining words on Germany’s SILENT MAJORITY

    “WHEN THEY CAME I DID NOT SPEAK”

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist; Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew; Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me.
    —————————————————————————————-
    DEFINING THE HOLOCAUST

    The Holocaust began in 1933 and ended in 1945 12 years of Antisemitism (also spelled anti-Semitism or anti-semitism) is PREJUDICE AGAINST, HATRED OF, OR DISCRIMINATION AGAINST JEWS AS AN ETHNIC, RELIGIOUS, OR RACIAL GROUP.

    11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children )
    6 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS WERE JEWISH.

    PREJUDICE AGAINST, HATRED OF, OR DISCRIMINATION AGAINST OTHER GROUPS targeted by the Nazis were Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, disabled people, and Roma.

    “WHEN THEY CAME I DID NOT SPEAK” for the record let’s add…

    Then they came for the Jehovah’s Witnesses and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jehovah’s Witnesses – Then they came for the homosexuals and I did not speak out – because I was not a homosexual – Then they came for the disabled people and I did not speak out – because I was not a disabled person – Then they came for Roma and I did not speak out – because I was not a Roma –

    TWO-THIRDS OF JEWISH PEOPLE living in Europe at the time of World War II were killed by ANTISEMITISM …..

    11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children )
    6 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS WERE JEWISH,
    5 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS targeted by the Nazis ,were other groups of people, prejudiced against, hatred of, or discrimination against.

    ———————————————————————–
    TODAY Niemöller’s words “ON THE SILENT MAJORITY” have meaning.

    THEY ARE OFTEN ALTERED TO FIT DIFFERING POLITICAL OR SOCIAL AGENDA,

    BUT THEY STAND AS A UNIVERSAL CALL FOR SOCIAL ACTION AND SOLIDARITY AND VIGILANCE IN THE FACE OF OPPRESSION AND INJUSTICE.
    ————————————————————————————–

    INDEED, IN 2016, IT IS NECESSARY TO INVESTIGATE THE POLITICAL OR DIFFERING SOCIAL AGENDA’S THAT  ARE REFERRED  TO UNDER THE “SILENT MAJORITY”

    —————————————————————————————-
    NOW THAT WE HAVE ESTABLISHED THE ORIGIN OF THE “SILENT MAJORITY” WE MUST DOCUMENT AND ENLIGHTEN AMERICAN CITIZENS ON  THE SIMILARITIES OF THE USAGE OF THE WORDS “SILENT MAJORITY” IN THE POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS IN NIXON’S 1968 AND TRUMP’S IN 2016.
    —————————————————————————————
    1968-1972 Richard Nixon campaigned on A SILENT MAJORITY PLATFORM
    NIXON CAMPAIGNED ON A PLATFORM DESIGNED TO REACH THE “SILENT MAJORITY” of middle class and working class Americans. He promised to “bring us together again,” and many Americans, weary after years of antiwar and civil rights protests, were happy to hear of peace returning to their streets.

    DONALD TRUMP IS CAMPAIGNING ON A PLATFORM DESIGNED TO REACH THE “SILENT MAJORITY” of middle class and working class Americans. The Donald promises to “bring us together again,” and many Americans, weary after years of antiwar and civil rights protests, are happy at the prospect of peace returning to their streets.
    ——————————————————————————
    NIXON CAMPAIGNED ON FOREIGN POLICY WAS ALSO A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. Humphrey was saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to what appeared to be absolute futility and agony in Vietnam. NIXON PROMISED TO FIND A WAY TO “PEACE WITH HONOR” IN VIETNAM, though Nixon was never entirely clear about how this was to be accomplished.
    ———————————————————————————
    2016 TRUMP campaign IS ON FOREIGN POLICY WHICH IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. AMERICA IS CURRENTLY saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to the absolute futility FOURTEEN YEARS OF WAR AND CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
    Trump has promised to find a way to “peace with honor” in the middle east, AND THE DONALD IS PERFECTLY AND ENTIRELY CLEAR ON HOW THIS IS TO BE ACCOMPLISHED.
    ———————————————————————————–
    1968 Richard Nixon campaigned on A SILENT MAJORITY PLATFORM
    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, DESPERATE TO FIND A WAY OUT OF THE VIETNAM QUAGMIRE, WERE APPARENTLY WERE READY TO GIVE THE REPUBLICAN AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE GOOD ON HIS CLAIM.

    What do WA State Fire Fees Pay For?

    I checked my Clallam County, WA State tax statement. Fire distribution $32.67, plus Fire Patrol fee $248.92 plus Fire Patrol County fee $2.00.
    This money (FIRE PATROL FEE) is collected by our county treasurer and remitted as, WA State Forest Fire Protection Assessment (FFPA) to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and placed in the DNR general fund.

    WHAT ARE THESE OVER $250.00 A YEAR FIRE FEES PAYING FOR?
    WA State DNR Assistant Division Director of Fire Prevention Karen Arnold will be sending me the email answer, per our phone conversation.
    I’ll keep you posted

    Good Afternoon,

    Thank you for the phone call and your inquiry around your family’s property Fire Patrol Fee or Forest Fire Protection Assessment (FFPA). If I recall in our conversation you say that you are a trustee to 800 ac in Clallam County and pay about $250/yr. I believe the RCW 76.04.610 should answer your questions regarding what DNR does with those monies.

    ——————————————————————
    (b) Assessors may, at their option, collect the assessment on tax exempt lands. If the assessor elects not to collect the assessment, the department may bill the landowner directly.

    (2) An owner who has paid assessments on two or more parcels, each containing fewer than fifty acres and each within the same county, may obtain the following refund:

    (a) If all the parcels together contain less than fifty acres, then the refund is equal to the flat fee assessments paid, reduced by the total of (i) seventeen dollars and (ii) the total of the amounts retained by the county from such assessments under subsection (5) of this section.

    (b) If all the parcels together contain fifty or more acres, then the refund is equal to the flat fee assessments paid, reduced by the total of (i) seventeen dollars, (ii) twenty-seven cents for each acre exceeding fifty acres, and (iii) the total of the amounts retained by the county from such assessments under subsection (5) of this section.

    Applications for refunds shall be submitted to the department on a form prescribed by the department and in the same year in which the assessments were paid. The department may not provide refunds to applicants who do not provide verification that all assessments and property taxes on the property have been paid. Applications may be made by mail.

    In addition to the procedures under this subsection, property owners with multiple parcels in a single county who qualify for a refund under this section may apply to the department on an application listing all the parcels owned in order to have the assessment computed on all parcels but billed to a single parcel. Property owners with the following number of parcels may apply to the department in the year indicated:

    Year Number of Parcels
    2002 10 or more parcels
    2003 8 or more parcels
    2004 and thereafter 6 or more parcels

    The department must compute the correct assessment and allocate one parcel in the county to use to collect the assessment. The county must then bill the forest fire protection assessment on that one allocated identified parcel. The landowner is responsible for notifying the department of any changes in parcel ownership.

    (3) Beginning January 1, 1991, under the administration and at the discretion of the department up to two hundred thousand dollars per year of this assessment shall be used in support of those rural fire districts assisting the department in fire protection services on forest lands.

    (4) FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS CHAPTER, THE DEPARTMENT MAY DIVIDE THE FOREST LANDS OF THE STATE, OR ANY PART THEREOF, INTO DISTRICTS, FOR FIRE PROTECTION AND ASSESSMENT PURPOSES, MAY CLASSIFY LANDS ACCORDING TO THE CHARACTER OF TIMBER PREVAILING, AND THE FIRE HAZARD EXISTING, and place unprotected lands under the administration of the proper district. Amounts paid or contracted to be paid by the department for protection of forest lands from funds at its disposal shall be a lien upon the property protected, unless reimbursed by the owner within ten days after October 1st of the year in which they were incurred. The department shall be prepared to make statement thereof, upon request, to a forest owner whose own protection has not been previously approved as to its adequacy, the department shall report the same to the assessor of the county in which the property is situated. The assessor shall extend the amounts upon the tax rolls covering the property, and upon authorization from the department shall levy the forest protection assessment against the amounts of unimproved land as shown in each ownership on the county assessor’s records.
    The assessor may then segregate on the records to provide that the improved land and improvements thereon carry the millage levy designed to support the rural fire protection districts as provided for in RCW 52.16.170.

    (5) The amounts assessed shall be collected at the time, in the same manner, by the same procedure, and with the same penalties attached that general state and county taxes on the same property are collected, except that errors in assessments may be corrected at any time by the department certifying them to the treasurer of the county in which the land involved is situated. Assessments shall be known and designated as assessments of the year in which the amounts became reimbursable. Upon the collection of assessments the county treasurer shall place fifty cents of the total assessments paid on a parcel FOR FIRE PROTECTION
    INTO THE COUNTY CURRENT EXPENSE FUND TO DEFRAY THE COSTS OF LISTING, BILLING, AND COLLECTING THESE ASSESSMENTS.
    The treasurer shall then transmit the balance to the department.

    Collections shall be applied against expenses incurred in carrying out the provisions of this section, INCLUDING NECESSARY AND REASONABLE ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS INCURRED BY THE DEPARTMENT IN THE ENFORCEMENT OF THESE PROVISIONS.

    The department may also expend sums collected from owners of forest lands or received FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE FOR NECESSARY ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE ENFORCEMENT OF RCW 76.04.660.

    (6) When land against which forest protection assessments are outstanding is acquired for delinquent taxes and sold at public auction, the state shall have a prior lien on the proceeds of sale over and above the amount necessary to satisfy the county’s delinquent tax judgment. The county treasurer, in case the proceeds of sale exceed the amount of the delinquent tax judgment, shall immediately remit to the department the amount of the outstanding forest protection assessments.

    (7) ALL NONFEDERAL PUBLIC BODIES OWNING OR ADMINISTERING FOREST LAND included in a forest protection zone SHALL PAY THE FOREST PROTECTION ASSESSMENTS provided in this section and THE SPECIAL FOREST FIRE SUPPRESSION account assessments under RCW 76.04.630.

    The forest protection assessments and special forest fire suppression account assessments shall be payable BY NONFEDERAL PUBLIC BODIES from available funds within thirty days following receipt of the written notice from the department which is given after October 1st of the year in which the protection was provided. Unpaid assessments are not a lien against the NONFEDERAL PUBLICLY OWNED LAND but shall constitute a debt by the NONFEDERAL PUBLIC BODY to the department and are subject to interest charges at the legal rate.

    During the 2011-2013 fiscal biennium

    the FOREST FIRE PROTECTION ASSESSMENT ACCOUNT may be APPROPRIATED to THE EVERGREEN STATE COLLEGE for analysis and recommendations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the state’s mechanisms for funding fire prevention and suppression activities.

    (8) A public body, having failed to previously pay the forest protection assessments required of it by this section, which fails to suppress a fire on or originating from forest lands owned or administered by it, is liable for the costs of suppression incurred by the department or its agent and is not entitled to reimbursement of costs incurred by the public body in the suppression activities.

    (9) The department may adopt rules to implement this section, including, but not limited to, rules on levying and collecting forest protection assessments.
