Just saying… Just asking?
(under that freedom of speech thing) FOR CLARIFICATION….
WAS THERE ANY SPECIFIC SOVEREIGN CITIZEN MOVEMENT?
IN MARCH 2014, after Cliven Bundy lost a second U.S. District Court case in a 20-year court battle, he sent letters entitled “Range War Emergency Notice and Demand for Protection” to county, state, and federal officials. In his court filings, depositions, and subsequent statements, he said he does not recognize the US Government because he is a citizen of the State of Nevada. In media interviews, Bundy used the language of the SOVEREIGN CITIZEN MOVEMENT as a rallying call, beckoning support  from members of the Oath Keepers, the White Mountain Militia, the Praetorian Guard, and other like-minded individuals to join his Bundy militia in a fight against the US Government. Armed militants from Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, California, and other areas responded with a show of force by joining the Bundy militia at a heavily armed militia camp near Bunkerville, Nevada in early April 2014. Approximately 1000 militia members and supporters joined the fight. On April 12, 2014, and consistent with THE SOVEREIGN CITIZEN credo and without success, Bundy ordered Sheriff Gillespie to confront the federal agents, disarm them and deliver their arms to them within an hour of his declaration.
May 4, 2014 HOLD YOUR HORSES: NEVADA STANDOFF REVEALS BIGGER FIGHT OVER FEDERALLY OWNED LAND
By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Sunday, May 4, 2014
DENVER — Behind the hoopla surrounding Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the Bureau of Land Management is a growing resentment over the federal government’s status as the largest landowner in the West. “THIS IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN ONE RANCHER IN NEVADA,” Utah state Rep. Ken Ivory, who heads the American Lands Council, said in an April 23 online debate sponsored by The Salt Lake Tribune. How much land does the federal government own? A 2012 Congressional Research Survey said the federal government owns about 640 million acres, or 28 percent of the nation’s land mass. Roughly 90 percent of that property is in the West.
Put another way, one out of every two acres in the West is federally owned. In Nevada, the figure is 81.1 percent; in Alaska, 61.8 percent; in Utah, 66.5 percent; in Oregon, 53 percent. In Connecticut and Iowa, the federal government owns 0.3 percent of the land. “The federal estate is larger than France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom combined,” said Robert Gordon, a senior adviser for the Heritage Foundation. “It is too big and was never intended to be preserved as one big park, but the left is strangling use of it and with it, rural America.” Although Nevada has received most of the national attention since Mr. Bundy’s clash last month with BLM agents, the heaviest push to wrest control of federal lands is coming from Utah. In 2012, Gov. Gary Richard Herbert, a Republican, signed a bill demanding that the federal government relinquish control of more than 20 million acres of federal land within Utah’s borders by 2015.
The federal government hasn’t shown any inclination to do so, but support for the idea is growing. Last month, Mr. Ivory and Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder hosted more than 50 legislators from nine states at a Legislative Summit on the Transfer of Public Lands in Salt Lake City. “It’s time the states in the West come of age,” Idaho House Speaker Scott Bedke said in The Salt Lake Tribune. “We’re every bit as capable of managing the lands in our boundaries as the states east of Colorado.”
There is a reason Utah is leading the drive. In September 1996, President Clinton cordoned off 1.8 million acres of federal land for the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah. Critics decried the move as a federal land grab designed to boost Mr. Clinton’s stock with environmentalists in an election year.
Those opposed to giving federal land to the states argue that the locals aren’t up to the task of managing that property, either because they lack the sophistication or they are too beholden to private interests.
At the Salt Lake Tribune debate, former BLM Director Patrick Shea said he opposed the movement to put states in charge of federal land within their borders.
“I don’t think states are capable of the complexity of managing these lands, and I think people like Rep. Ivory get off on these rhetorical pitches that don’t have a historical basis and they certainly don’t have a scientific basis,” Mr. Shea said. State officials argue that the federal agency is herding rural Westerners off the land by tightening restrictions, many of them driven by the Endangered Species Act, as well as lax management.
At last year’s Western Governors’ Association meeting, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat, linked wildfires to federal land management of the forests. “There’s a real high degree of frustration when it comes to management of our federal forest lands,” he said.
Many states added to the union during the 1800s were largely federally owned, but the government was actively trying to give land to homesteaders and settlers. By the early 1900s, when Western states were still new to the union, the focus began to shift to conservation of public lands. In 1976, Congress touched off the first Sagebrush Rebellion by approving the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, which declared that federal land within state borders would remain under federal control until further notice.
Advocates on both sides have been arguing over the legalities ever since. Advocates of federal land insist that the issue is settled, but critics call for Congress to treat Western states the same as other states. “You don’t change these solemn compacts of statehood as the Supreme Court unanimously said in 2009 by a unilateral policy from Congress,” Mr. Ivory said at the debate. On Friday, about two dozen members and supporters of the Bundy family filed with the Clark County sheriff criminal complaints against federal agents. Accusations included assault and threats with a deadly weapon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Mr. Bundy, 68, lost significant public support two weeks ago when he wondered aloud whether black Americans were “better off as slaves” than on public assistance and said black social misery today was “because they never learned how to pick cotton.” He did not accompany his son Ammon Bundy and others in filing the complaints. “We expect the sheriff to investigate the crimes,” said Ammon Bundy, who was hit with a stun gun during an April 9 clash with BLM agents at the ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
May 5, 2014 NEVADA DEM CALLS FOR PURGE OF ‘ARMED SEPARATISTS’ FROM BUNDY RANCH
By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times – Monday, May 5, 2014
A congressman who represents the area of Nevada that’s home to Cliven Bundy’s ranch says HIS CONSTITUENTS ARE DEMANDING HE ASK STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TO GET RID OF MILITIA MEMBERS WHO HAVE COME TO STAND BY THE RANCHER’S SIDE IN HIS GRAZING DISPUTE AGAINST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. DEMOCRATIC REP. STEVEN HORSFORD told participants of the Clark County Democratic Convention in Las Vegas this past weekend that residents are worried — and government officials need to act.
“I am calling on [Gov.] Brian Sandoval, Sen. Dean Heller, the [Clark County] sheriff and any other elected official in Nevada to do their part to get rid of these armed separatists,” he said, the Associated Press reported. Mr. Bundy’s dispute over ranching fees ultimately led agents with the Bureau of Land Management to take up arms and encircle his property, cutting off road access to the land. A national uproar ensued, and militia members from outside states arrived on scene to join forces with other local activists and help Mr. Bundy.
Mr. Horsford characterized such armed resistance against the government as unwarranted and said remaining supporters of Mr. Bundy should now go home.
He told the delegates at the Las Vegas convention that a fifth-grade girl referred to Mr. Bundy as having a “sense of entitlement” who was skipping out on grazing fees that other ranchers had to pay. Another person referred to Mr. Bundy as a “welfare rancher,” Mr. Horsford said, AP reported.
Mr. Horsford’s petition may fall on deaf ears, however. Sen. Dean, Mr. Heller has previously labeled Mr. Bundy’s supporters as “patriots,” while Mr. Sandoval said it’s not likely that the sheriff would force the activists to leave the area any time soon, AP reported.
April 10, 2015 ‘LIBERTY CELEBRATION’ AT BUNDY RANCH MARKS ONE-YEAR SINCE ARMED CONFRONTATION WITH BLM
Posted 9:53 pm, April 10, 2015
NEVADA — It’s been one year since Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy made headlines after an armed standoff with the Bureau of Land Management and other federal agents, and, in the end, the government backed off from seizing cattle in connection with the more than $1 million they claim Bundy owes them for grazing fees.
To commemorate the date this weekend, Bundy and his family are hosting a “Liberty Celebration” at their ranch. Among those invited are cowboys, politicians, the militia, anyone who ‘enjoys freedom’ and the media.
However, despite the party, the government’s case against Bundy remains open. “I SUSPECT WE HAVEN’T SEEN THE FINAL SHOE DROP ON THIS, AND THE NEXT SHOE TO DROP MAY WELL BE SOME SORT OF CRIMINAL PROSECUTION,” said Bob Keiter, a law professor at the University of Utah. THE BUNDY SHOWDOWN GENERATED HEADLINES LAST APRIL AND FOUND ITS WAY INTO KEITER’S LECTURES, WHERE THE FOCUS IS ON PUBLIC LANDS DISPUTES.
“Mr. Bundy asserts that the federal government does not own these lands, and he’s simply wrong,” Keiter said.
The land in question, according to Keiter, has been under federal control since the 19th century. However, in 1993, there was a move toward more stringent grazing regulations, due to wildlife concerns. That is when Bundy stopped paying, according to the BLM. “IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT THERE ARE SOME CONFLICTS,” KEITER SAID.
“THE SCOPE AND DEPTH OF THIS PARTICULAR CONFRONTATION, THAT INVOLVED FIREARMS AND THE LIKE, SEEMS TO HAVE GONE BEYOND WHAT I CAN RECALL HAPPENING IN THE PAST.”
But federal agents have remained mum about where their investigation into Bundy stands. FOLLOWING THE STANDOFF ON APRIL 12, 2014, THE BLM STATED SAFETY CONCERNS HAD FORCED THEM TO WITHDRAW FROM THE AREA. THEY RELEASED NEARLY 400 CATTLE BELONGING TO BUNDY AND LEFT.
FOX 13 News reached out to the agency for comment, Friday. Celia Boddington, assistant director for communications, sent the following statement:
“The Bureau of Land Management remains resolute in addressing issues involved in efforts to gather Mr. Bundy’s cattle last year and we are pursuing the matter through the legal system. Our primary goal remains, as it was a year ago, to resolve this matter safely and according to the rule of the law.”

Obama and Putin Play Diplomatic Poker Over Syria – The …
The New York Times
4 days ago – PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SPEECH TO THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY 2015 SEPT. 28 2015 … and criticized other western states’ policies in the Middle East. … “Let’s remember how this started,” Mr. Obama said of the Syria conflict.
UNITED NATIONS — The leaders of the United States and Russia traded blunt criticisms on Monday at the United Nations, essentially blaming each other for the catastrophic war in Syria and the refugee crisis it helped to spawn.
The speeches of President Obama, followed more than an hour later by President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, dominated the opening of the annual General Assembly of world leaders. MR. OBAMA MADE A FORCEFUL DEFENSE OF DIPLOMACY BUT ALSO CASTIGATED RUSSIA BY NAME MULTIPLE TIMES IN HIS SPEECH FOR ITS DEFENSE OF THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT, its takeover of Crimea and its actions supporting Ukrainian rebels.
“Dangerous currents risk pulling us back into a darker, more disordered world,” Mr. Obama said.
Those currents include major powers that want to ignore international rules AND IMPOSE ORDER THROUGH FORCE OF MILITARY POWER, HE SAID.
“In accordance with this logic, we should support tyrants like Bashar al-Assad who drops barrel bombs to massacre innocent civilians because the alternative is surely worse,” he said in comments that seemed to be aimed directly at Mr. Putin.
In what amounted to a basic rebuttal of Mr. Obama, the Russian leader extolled the Syrian leader, saying that he represented stability and that his forces needed support to fight the Islamic State extremists now threatening the region — even though Mr. Assad’s forces are for the most part fighting rebel groups dedicated to his ouster, not the Islamic State militants.
“We think it’s an enormous mistake to refuse to cooperate with the Syrian government and its armed forces who are valiantly fighting terrorism face to face,” Mr. Putin said.
But Mr. Putin, in what appeared to be a step to outmaneuver Mr. Obama on Syria, also spoke of creating “a genuinely broad international coalition” to fight the Islamic State, including a Security Council resolution to “coordinate” military action.
How the United States and its allies will respond to such an idea is unclear. But President François Hollande of France, speaking to reporters later, welcomed the idea of a “broad coalition” and even a Security Council resolution as long as two conditions were met: a stop to the bombings and a “political transition with departure of Assad.” Mr. Hollande did not elaborate on exactly when Mr. Assad would have to leave.
In remarks about foreign Islamic State fighters that seemed clearly aimed at stoking fears in Europe, Mr. Putin said: “We cannot allow these criminals who have already felt the smell of blood to return back home and continue their evil doings. No one wants this to happen, does he?”
Mr. Putin did not hear Mr. Obama speak — the Russian leader had just arrived in New York from Moscow. But the tensions between the two are well known. In a deft bit of diplomacy, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sat in between them during a lunch he hosted for a number of top leaders.
In his toast, Mr. Ban, invoking the saying “There is no such thing as a free lunch,” exhorted his guests to help the United Nations reach the new Sustainable Development Goals for eliminating extreme poverty and hunger by 2030.
Mr. Obama and Mr. Putin clinked glasses after Mr. Ban’s toast.
In his own toast, Mr. Obama praised Mr. Ban and said “We are facing extraordinary challenges today, ones that test our capacity to work together.” Later in the afternoon Mr. Obama and Mr. Putin posed for photographers before a long-awaited private meeting between the two, which lasted for 95 minutes. They shook hands at the start but made no comments, and the details of their discussions were not immediately disclosed.
In his earlier speech, Mr. Obama also chided China for its expansions in the South China Sea and Iran for its support of Mr. Assad, as well as the broader anti-American messages that emanate from the Iranians.
“Chanting ‘Death to America’ does not create jobs, or make Iran more secure,” Mr. Obama said. Mr. Obama said that he was realistic, but he said realism had to take into account the brutality of the Assad government in Syria, where war has raged for more than four years.
“Let’s remember how this started,” Mr. Obama said of the Syria conflict. “Assad reacted to peaceful protest by escalating repression and killing and in turn created the environment for the current strife.”
Such violence makes it impossible for the vast majority of Syria’s population to accept Mr. Assad as their leader, Mr. Obama said.
Similarly, Mr. Obama said, a fidelity to international rules required that the United States respond forcefully to Russia’s intervention in Crimea and Ukraine. He said that the United States had few economic interests in the region and understood the long history that Russia had with Crimea and Ukraine.
“But we cannot stand by when the sovereignty and territorial integrity of a nation is flagrantly violated.” He added: “That’s the basis of the sanctions that the United States and our partners imposed on Russia. It’s not a desire to return to the Cold War.”
MR. OBAMA TOLD THE INTERNATIONAL BODY THAT HE COMMANDS THE MOST POWERFUL MILITARY FORCE ON THE PLANET. But no matter how powerful its military or strong its economy, the United States could not solve the world’s problems on its own, he said.
He pointed to the war in Iraq where, despite sending more than 100,000 troops and spending trillions of dollars, the United States was unsuccessful in stabilizing the country.
MR. OBAMA EXTOLLED THE DIPLOMATIC COURSE IN WHICH THE UNITED STATES AND OTHER WORLD POWERS had successfully negotiated a nuclear agreement with Iran. And, in one of the first lines to yield cheers, he said that the United States had finally acknowledged that its posture toward Cuba had been wrong and that under his watch, diplomatic relations had been restored.
“As these contacts yield progress, I’m confident that our Congress will inevitably lift an embargo that should not be in place anymore,” he said to cheers. “Change won’t come overnight to Cuba but I’m confident that openness not coercion will support the reforms and better the life that the Cuban people deserve.”
MR. OBAMA MADE A FORCEFUL CASE FOR DEMOCRACY AND POINTED OUT THAT “DICTATORSHIPS ARE UNSTABLE.”
“You can jail your opponents but you can’t imprison ideas,” he said.
President Xi Jinping of China, speaking later in the day, reiterated what he called the Chinese priority of peace and stability for its economic development. He also demonstrated China’s enormous financial influence by announcing a $1 billion fund for the United Nations, and said his country would create a permanent standby peacekeeping contingent of 8,000 police and troops in case it is needed by the world body.
Despite a swooning Russian economy and Western condemnation of Russia’s takeover of Crimea and intervention in Ukraine, MR. PUTIN SEEMS TO HAVE SURPRISED THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WITH AN INTELLIGENCE-SHARING ALLIANCE WITH IRAQ, SYRIA AND IRAN ABOUT THE ISLAMIC STATE MILITANT GROUP THAT OCCUPIES PARTS OF SYRIA AND IRAQ.
The Russians and Americans even squabbled in recent days over who asked whom for the meeting between the two presidents.
Mr. Putin has said that Mr. Assad is a vital bulwark against the Islamic State; Mr. Obama has said that Mr. Assad must leave before the conflict in Syria can be resolved.
President Hassan Rouhani of Iran, in his speech, offered to help to “bring about democracy” in the two conflicts where it has influence, in Syria and Iran, even as he signaled his support for the Russian notion of a Security Council resolution. “We propose that the fight against terrorism be incorporated into a binding international document and no country be allowed to use terrorism for the purpose of intervention in the affairs of other countries,” Mr. Rouhani said.
Mr. Obama was the first in a line of speakers from the big powers scheduled to speak at the 70th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, where the Syria conflict and its consequences — the spread of Islamic State jihadism and the surge of refugees into Europe — were dominant themes.
In opening the General Assembly, Mr. Ban struck a somber tone, asserting that: “Inequality is growing, TRUST IS FADING, AND IMPATIENCE WITH LEADERSHIP CAN BE SEEN AND FELT FAR AND WIDE.”
The remarks by Mr. Ban, who is approaching his last year as the secretary general, were unusually pointed.
He called to leaders to not stay in power beyond their constitutional terms in office, pressed permanent members of the Security Council to put aside their divisions, called explicitly for an “end to bombings” in Yemen, and named the five countries that, as he said, “hold the key” to peace in Syria: Russia, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey.
Mr. Ban said 100 million civilians are in need of aid, for which the United Nations has pleaded for $20 billion. He rebuked the rich for not giving more, giving examples: One third of what the organization needs for Syria and Iraq has been received and for Gambia, whose children are among the hungriest in the world, nothing has come in.
He stepped up his criticism of countries that shut their borders to refugees. “I urge Europe to do more,” reminding the Continent’s leaders that “after the Second World War it was Europeans seeking assistance.”
He marked two pieces of good news. He praised the nuclear pact that the world powers reached with Iran. And with some relief, he noted that the world had come together to stop the Ebola virus from spreading.
President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil, who was the first to speak, scolded those countries that have tried to prohibit refugees fleeing conflicts in the Middle East, pointing out that Brazil hosts Syrians and Haitians now as it opened the doors to Europeans and Asians a century ago. “In a world where goods, capital, data and ideas flow freely, it is absurd to impede the free flow of people,” she said.

By NEIL MacFARQUHAR OCT. 2, 2015
MOSCOW — The Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday that it had bombed seven targets in Syria in overnight air raids, including a command post and a training camp near the northwestern city of Raqqa that would be the first strike in an area widely recognized as being under the control of the Islamic State.
The United States and other nations that back groups fighting President Bashar al-Assad have accused the Russian forces of targeting almost every opposition group but the Islamic State in the airstrikes that began on Wednesday.
Turkey issued a joint statement on Friday with Britain, France, Germany, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United States, calling on Russia to stop targeting the opposition groups they have been supporting and warning that such attacks would feed radicalism and extremism.
Their view was summarily rejected later at the United Nations by the foreign minister of Syria, Walid al-Moallem. Delivering his nation’s speech at the annual General Assembly, Mr. Moallem thanked the Russians for coming to the aid of the Syrian military with airstrikes and asserted they were part of its effort to combat terrorism.
Mr. Moallem castigated the alliance of Western and Arab states for what he called their failure to stop the flow of foreign jihadists into Syria. He blamed the alliance for creating the crisis now engulfing the country.
“Our vision proved to be correct,” Mr. Moallem said.
The Russian foray into Syria also preoccupied a Ukraine summit meeting in Paris on Friday, at least initially. The leaders of Russia and France talked for an hour about Syria, a French official said, before the broader meeting, which included the leaders of Germany and Ukraine, meant to shore up the agreement signed in Minsk, Belarus, this year that was intended to pacify southeast Ukraine.
In Moscow on Friday, the Defense Ministry said that its warplanes had flown 10 sorties overnight, hitting seven targets including a training camp and a command post run by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, near Raqqa.
Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the ministry, said that the training camp was near the town of Maaden Jedid and that the command post was near Kasert-Faraj, both southwest of Raqqa.
Raqqa has emerged as the capital of the patchwork of territory that the Islamic State controls across northern Syria.
In Raqqa, the authorities announced that they were canceling Friday Prayer in the mosques as a safety measure, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a organization based in Britain that tracks local activity across the country.
The Russians also reportedly hit Qaratayn, south of Homs, according to Mayadeen TV, a Lebanese channel close to the Damascus government. Islamic State forces captured the town recently, pushing out from the desert city of Palmyra toward Damascus, and they are still holding some Assyrian Christian hostages from there.
The other four areas that Syrian state television reported had been hit by Russian forces were in different parts of the country known to be controlled by rebel groups other than the Islamic State.
Russia has rejected accusations that, in trying to shore up Mr. Assad, it has hit all opposition groups indiscriminately rather than concentrating on Islamic State militants. Its military operations have confounded the loose coalition of nations that have been backing the opposition since the civil war erupted in 2011.
The statement from the seven countries expressed “deep concern” about the Russian military buildup in Syria, and in particular Russian Air Force attacks around Hama, Homs and Idlib. The attacks avoided Islamic State targets and caused civilian casualties, the statement said.
“These military actions constitute a further escalation and will only fuel more extremism and radicalization,” the statement said. “We call on the Russian federation to immediately cease its attacks on the Syrian opposition and civilians and to focus its efforts on fighting ISIL.”
Russia, like Syria, which has been deeply involved in picking the Russian Air Force’s targets, does not distinguish among the various opposition groups, labeling them all Islamic State or “terrorists.”
As part of its campaign in Syria, the Russian Navy has deployed the missile cruiser Moscow to defend Russian Air Force planes stationed near Latakia, the Interfax news agency reported on Friday, quoting an unidentified military source.
The missile cruiser, part of a fleet that operates permanently in the eastern Mediterranean, has fired a few shots at aerial targets, the agency reported, without providing any additional details.
Russian support for the Assad government is based at least in part on a desire to maintain access to its longstanding naval station at Tartus, its only overseas military post outside the former Soviet Union.
Reporting was contributed by Hwaida Saad and Maher Samaan from Beirut, Lebanon; Rick Gladstone from New York; and Aurelien Breeden from Paris.
the bottom line….
IS PRESIDENT OBAMA PROTECTING OUR HOMELAND AND AMERICAN CITIZENS FROM LONE WOLF ATTACKS?
IS PRESIDENT OBAMA PROTECTING AMERICAS AUTONOMY? IS OUR FREEDOM FROM EXTERNAL CONTROL OR INFLUENCE SECURE? IS OUR INDEPENDENCE SECURE?
As usual the politically correct, unusually prompt, written response does not include problematic words.

SUBJECT: I OPPOSE S.1510 MORE WILDERNESS
(I did not ask about or mention electronic warfare testing in Washington)
Thank you for contacting me regarding proposed electronic warfare testing in Washington. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.
On October 2, 2014, the U.S. Navy announced that it would conduct electronic warfare training over Navy property at Pacific Beach, Washington, as well as over U.S. Forest Service lands on the Olympic Peninsula. The planned training missions will involve fixed electronic emitters on Pacific Beach, as well as occasional use of mobile electronic emitter vans on U.S. Forest Service land. As you are likely aware, the Navy currently conducts in-flight exercises in these areas with aircraft based at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.
I appreciate the concerns expressed by constituents about impacts of noise caused by flight training at NAS Whidbey and about how the placement of these electronic emitters may increase the number of training flights. Please be assured that I take these concerns very seriously, and will continue to monitor further developments in this matter. I continue to urge the Navy to engage in open dialogue with concerned citizens, and I will continue to work to promote transparency regarding the Navy’s training missions in the Pacific Northwest.
Since being elected to the Senate, I have committed myself to protecting our nation’s environment and natural resources while ensuring Americans continue to have access to the outdoor recreational opportunities that they love.
I believe we have a responsibility to protect our state and nation’s rugged natural beauty and pristine and historic lands for the collective benefit of current and future generations. From expanding Mt. Rainier National Park, to creating the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park at the mouth of the Columbia River, I have worked tirelessly to preserve our amazing natural treasures while boosting Washington’s recreation and tourism industries at the same time. I have also opposed making the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge available for oil exploration, and introduced the Roadless Area Conservation Act to protect 58.5 million acres of our nation’s last remaining pristine forestlands, including two million acres in Washington State.
I will keep your thoughts in mind should I have the opportunity to consider legislation affecting the Navy’s planned training missions in the U.S. Senate.
Thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts on this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance.
I oppose S.1510 to designate and expand wilderness areas in Olympic National Forest in the State of Washington, and to designate certain rivers in Olympic National Forest and Olympic National Park as wild and…

WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?
We the American People have been DEPRIVED OF OUR USE and USED BY THE U.S. CONGRESS.
CONGRESS HAS ABUSED US, BY DENYING “WE THE PEOPLE” OUR HISTORICALLY DOCUMENTED RIGHT TO THE USE OF PUBLIC LAND.

Hmmm… after 3000 years of “THE NATURAL HYDROLOGIC CYCLE?” AND AFTER (41) Global Governments have been attempting to modify, and change the weather in various forms for about the last 70 years?
NOW AFTER 70 YEARS, OF MODIFYING GLOBAL WEATHER? THE UNITED STATE IS FINALLY GOING TO STUDY IT?
Lord, what fools those mortals be…
I am compelled to post this document “Weather Balance By God”
Ecclesiastes 1:6-7, “The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again.
Here King Solomon, writing 3,000 years ago explains how the oceans are the origin of rain. tells us the wind has currents. This was unknown to man,
TODAY SCIENCE HAS DOCUMENTED THE DIRECTION OF WIND CURRENTS AND WIND PATHS.
METEOROLOGY OR THE CIRCULATION OF WINDS MOVE BY FIXED LAWS,
speaks of global wind currents and the earth’s water cycle. “The phrase, ‘the wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course’ is an accurate and astonishing description of
the circular flow of air around the earth, called the ‘JET STREAM,’ well known to anyone who watches the evening news weather reports”( also in Isaiah 40:12.)
THIS IS ONLY A RECENT UNDERSTANDING OF SCIENTISTS.
As part of the cycle, an electrical field generates within a cloud and acts as a kind of magnetic glue that causes the water particles to adhere to one another. The same field also produces lightning. “He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth,” writes the psalmist, “he sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses” (Psalms 135:7). This one verse clearly outlines four aspects of the hydrologic cycle: evaporation, wind, electricity, and rain.
God “sends lightning with the rain,” Jeremiah says on two separate occasions (Jeremiah 10:13; 51:16). The important emphasis in each case is that rain and electricity are linked.
Hmmm… after 3000 years of “THE NATURAL HYDROLOGIC CYCLE?” (41) Global Governments have been attempting to modify, and change the weather in various forms for about the last 70 years.
SO, IN A PROVERBIAL SENSE, ROBBING WATER FROM PETER TO RAIN ON PAUL.
WHY? because with global WEATHER MODIFICATION in 41 COUNTRIES around the world and cloud seeding, EARTH’S NATURAL WATER CYCLE HAS BEEN DISRUPTED FOR ABOUT 70 YEARS, the place the streams come from, shall not return again.
“In its report, THE STUDY COMMITTEE INCLUDES EXPERTS?in oceanography, earth sciences, environmental sciences, remote sensing, global ecology, marine chemistry and geochemistry, public policy, HISTORY OF SCIENCE, atmospheric and climate science and national security MAY BRIEFLY DISCUSS weather modification as a HISTORICAL EXAMPLE and draw on ‘lessons learned,'” Rugani said.

A U.S. STUDY is under way to evaluate several possible ways TO LIMIT CLIMATE CHANGE including solar radiation management and carbon dioxide removal.
The study will primarily be an analysis of peer-reviewed literature, and will not involve any substantial new research, experimentation, or development of new geoengineering technology, spokeswoman Lauren Rugani of the National Academy of Sciences said.
“The project’s main goal is to provide a technical evaluation of proposed geoengineering techniques such as carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation management,
TO DETERMINE WHAT WE KNOW AND DON’T KNOW ABOUT THEIR PHYSICAL CAPABILITIES, TECHNICAL FEASIBILITIES,KNOWN RISKS, AND INTENDED OR UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES,” Rugani said.
The evaluation would include general comments on how using such technology may impact the environment, economy and national security. THE STUDY COMMITTEE INCLUDES EXPERTS in oceanography, earth sciences, environmental sciences, remote sensing, global ecology, marine chemistry and geochemistry, public policy, history of science, atmospheric and climate science and national security, Rugani said.
Most of the proposed geoengineering techniques for solar radiation management and carbon dioxide removal being discussed have GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS and are generally discussed in a GLOBAL CONTEXT, Rugani said.
“The study may discuss what is known about regional effects from various proposed techniques, but that will depend what peer-reviewed literature is available on those effects,” she said.
The project is supported by the Academy, the U.S. intelligence community, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA.
Changing the Weather
Attempts to change the weather have taken on various forms for about 70 years.
Agencies have used cloud seeding to bring rain and snow to parched areas of the western United States. The U.S. government tried to research and modify hurricanes from the early 1960s to the mid-80s, an effort that was unsuccessful.
Indonesia used cloud seeding in June to help douse forest fires. The Chinese government used its weather modification branch to work on a rain-free Beijing Olympics in 2008.
So what’s next for weather modification?
“In its report, the committee may briefly discuss weather modification as a historical example and draw on ‘lessons learned,'” Rugani said.
Weather modification is the process of modifying the weather to enhance rainfall and/or suppress hail with the use of glaciogenic (silver iodide) and/or hygroscopic (calcium chloride) material, Project Meteorologist Jonathan Jennings of the West Texas Weather Modification Association said.
Aircraft or ground base generators are used to deliver the materials into the clouds, he said.
“In Texas, our operations are conducted by seeding at the base of a convective thunderstorm with an aircraft. Our pilots and meteorologists (on the ground) work together via radio contact to identify target clouds and areas of inflow,” Jennings said.
“We rely on the inflow to transport our material into the areas of the cloud that the material is expected to impact. The meteorologists are licensed by the state of Texas to perform these operations. The main tools used are satellite imagery and radar via a program called TITAN (Thunderstorm Identification, Tracking, Analysis and Nowcasting) supported by the National Center for Atmospheric Research.”
Safeguards are in place to curtail or stop cloud-seeding programs on predetermined criteria.
“For example, on our program in North Dakota we do not seed storms that are producing a funnel cloud or tornado, and we also suspend operations during flash flooding situations. Winter programs generally have snowpack criteria by which seeding may be suspended, based on the percentage of normal precipitation and how far along they are in the snow season,” said Darin Langerud, director of the North Dakota Atmospheric Resource Board, who is part of the North American Weather Modification Council.
Cloud seeding produces no significant environmental effacers but does enhance precipitation by 5 to 15 percent and can reduce crop-hail damage by 40 to 45 percent, Langerud said.
“The economic benefits of increasing precipitation and reducing hail damage are too numerous to list, but in general, the benefits of extra water in the form of rain and snow and reduced crop-hail damage produced from cloud seeding far outweigh the costs,” he said. “Water produced from cloud seeding can cost as little as a few dollars per acre-foot. Desalination, for example, produces an acre-foot of water for roughly between $500 to $2,000 per acre-foot.”
Besides the United States, forty-two other nations have weather modification programs, according to a report released in July by the EXPERT Team on Weather Modification Research of the World Meteorological Organization.
WEATHER WARFARE IS BANNED UNDER A 1980 TREATY TO WHICH THE U.S. IS A SIGNATORY, “BUT” the U.S. intelligence community definitely has an interest in such technologies, said John E. Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, a security think tank in Alexandria, Va.
“Because global warming may impact the security of other countries and CREATE PROBLEMS FOR THE U.S. GOVERNMENT,” Pike said. One national security benefit would be to prevent state failure in Africa, particularly in a nation such as Somalia, which has suffered through famine and a long-term civil war.
It also would be perfectly ethical for the U.S. government to use weather modification to save lives and money, Pile said.

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards
through the clouds, “It’s a planet,” said God, “and I’ve put Life on it. I’m going to call it
Earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.”
“Balance in all things,” God continued pointing to different countries.“This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”
Some truths, too painful or too likely to provoke?
“Many a true word is spoken in jest” and “Some truths, too painful or too likely to provoke, can be spoken only when the listener has been disarmed by laughter”
BALANCE BY GOD
Once upon a time, God was missing for six days.
Eventually, Michael, the Archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day. He
inquired of God. “Where have you been?”
God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards
through the clouds, “Look, Michael. Look what I’ve made.”
Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, “What is it?”
“It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put Life on it. I’m going to call it
Earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.”
“Balance?” inquired Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing to
different parts of earth. “For example, northern Europe will be a place of great
opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over there
I’ve placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black
people.” “Balance in all things,” God continued pointing to different countries.
“This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”
The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a land mass and
said, “What’s that one?”
Ah,” said God “That’s Washington State, the most glorious place on earth.
There are beautiful streams, hills, and forests. The people from Washington
State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous, and they are
going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable,
hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the
world as diplomats, and carriers of peace.”
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then proclaimed, “What about
balance, God? You said there would be balance.”
God smiled, “There is another Washington….. wait til you see the idiots I put there.”
God smiled, “There is another Washington….. wait til you see the idiots I put there.”

That pretty much sums it up.
WHILE the WORKING UPPER AND MIDDLE CLASS AMERICAN’S ARE BEING TAXED INTO POVERTY, for the common good?
A leftist government steals money from HARD WORKING AMERICAN CITIZENS and gives it to others, FOR THE COMMON GOOD OF?UNDOCUMENTED ILLEGAL ALIENS? The current population may range from 7 MILLION TO 20 MILLION IMMIGRANTS that are living in the UnitedStates ILLEGALLY.
President Obama said “WE MUST GET THE “WORKERS” BACK TO WORK”
A Freudian slip?
The SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY (SWP) is a far-left political organization in the United States.
OBAMA DID NOT SAY “WE MUST GET THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BACK TO WORK.
Obama said “WE MUST GET THE WORKERS BACK TO WORK”
WOW, THE “SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY” traces its origins back to the former Communist ….
SOCIALISM is a governmental philosophy which calls for the redistribution of American wealth
Really? the redistribution of wealth for “WHO’S” common good.
Not to just redistributed AMERICAN WEALTH TO POOR American citizens,
BUT for THE DHS SUPPORT AND REDISTRIBUTION OF AMERICAN WEALTH
TO AND FOR UP TO 7 MILLION TO 20 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.
WHILE the WORKING UPPER AND MIDDLE CLASS AMERICAN’SARE BEING TAXED INTO POVERTY, for the common good?
The RICH MEN AND WOMEN leaders, THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES of the American leftist government are living high on the hog.
Rich man –POOR WORKING MAN – Poor Man – Beggar man – Thief – Doctor- Lawyer – Indian Chief.
YOU SHOULDN’T BE WORRIED?
Unless, of course, YOU DON’T LIKE SOCIALISM?
And, you are not particularly impressed with an American PRESIDENT AND FEDERAL left wing government THAT is turning our SOVEREIGN FREE COUNTRY INTO A TOTALITARIAN DICTATORSHIP.
What happens to America, when? Nothing is politically neutral, and nothing is outside the scope (or control) of the state?
When the LIBERAL LEFT WING totalitarian state uses modern means to exercise complete political power?
What happens when? The state takes over and tries to control the economic, social, intellectual and cultural aspects of people’s lives?
The word “totalitarian” is defined: “of or relating to a political regime based on subordination of the individual to the state and strict control of all aspects of the life and productive capacity of the nation especially by coercive measures”.
We used to call ourselves “THE LAND OF THE FREE”, but the truth is that we are being transformed into a TOTALITARIAN society.
And LIBERAL left wing TOTALITARIANISM GOVERNMENT is exactly what we are experiencing in America today.

America Is Being Systematically Transformed Into A Totalitarian Society
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from Bakersfield who is House majority whip, defended the bill and issued his own blast after Brown’s statement:
“This bill H.R. 3964, The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act: ends the madness of putting fish before families and creates a solution to ensure consistent water deliveries for our communities when Mother Nature blesses us with precipitation,” McCarthy said in an emailed statement to the Associated Press Monday. “Any other proposed idea to ameliorate the effects of today’s drought would not be felt for over a dozen years. Our communities cannot wait.”
The battle over water legislation comes as the state continues to suffer through one of the worst droughts in its history. That was underlined Friday when the California Department of Water Resources announced that State Water Project customers — agencies that serve about 25 million people statewide and irrigate about 750,000 of farmland —will get no water this year
California’s San Joaquin Valley is the salad bowl of the world, providing the majority of fruits and vegetables for the entire nation. But, with another man-made drought looming, the San Joaquin Valley is in danger of becoming a dust bowl unless immediate action is taken to change policies that put the needs of fish above the livelihood of people.
House Republicans have a bipartisan comprehensive solution to end future man-made droughts, bring job and water supply certainty to the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys in California and decrease reliance on foreign food sources.
Get the Facts:
California’s water storage and transportation system designed by federal and state governments includes 1,200 miles of canals and nearly 50 reservoirs that provide water to about 22 million people and irrigate about four million acres of land throughout the state. In May 2007, a Federal District Court Judge ruled that increased amounts of water had to be re-allocated towards protecting the Delta smelt – a three-inch fish on the Endangered Species List.
Because of this ruling, in 2009 and 2010 more than 300 billion gallons (or 1 million acre-feet) of water were diverted away from farmers in the Central Valley and into the San Francisco Bay – eventually going out into the Pacific Ocean.
This man-made drought cost thousands of farm workers their jobs, inflicted up to 40 percent unemployment in certain communities, and fallowed hundreds of thousands of acres of fertile farmland.
Unemployment remains at a regional average of 17%. With current precipitation at near-record lows, the same regulations will be imposed pushing unemployment even higher.
The Pelosi-led Congress did nothing to reverse the plight of the San Joaquin Valley and even obstructed repeated Republican actions to reverse the situation. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act reflects Republican promises to avoid another man-made drought.
H.R. 3964, The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act:
H.R. 3964 is a comprehensive solution that would restore some water deliveries, ensure a reliable water supply for people and fish, and save taxpayer money by ending unnecessary and dubious government projects.
Last Congress, the House passed bipartisan legislation, The Sacramento-San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act, to restore the flow of water. The Democratic-controlled Senate did not act on that bill or any California water legislation. The situation in California is now dire because of inaction by the Senate.
Highlights of the bill:
Restores water deliveries to communities by codifying the historic, bipartisan State/Federal agreement known as the “Bay-Delta Accord.”
Reforms punitive federal laws, like the Central Valley Project Improvement Act and the San Joaquin River Restoration Settlement Act, in order to provide fairness to ratepayers, promote transparency and accountability, and save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.
Allows water users to pay off federal debt early, which will bring early revenue to the U.S. Treasury.
Protects and secures private property and senior water rights.

REFORMS TO THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT
January 26, 2014 media release
“REP. HASTINGS CALLS FOR REFORMS TO ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT”
YAKIMA, Wash. — From spotted owls to salmon, the Pacific Northwest has been ground zero for the impacts — good and bad — of the Endangered Species Act for 40 years.
That’s the view of U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Pasco, who heads the House Committee on Natural Resources, which is considering significant changes to the landmark 1973 legislation.
“Very generally, those of us in the Northwest have been hit by impacts of the Endangered Species Act more than anybody,” Hastings said. “The economy that is based here is natural-resource based, with water, and with the timber industry, so whenever you have laws that impact natural resources, they are going to impact the economy.”
Hastings believes the law takes too much of an economic toll, leaves too much room for litigation by environmental groups and lacks an emphasis on getting species recovered and off the list. He called legislation to reform the act a priority for the year.
THE POWER TO ISSUE SUBPOENAS AND COMPEL TRANSPARENCY
WASHINGTON, D.C., January 16, 2014 – The House Natural Resources Committee today voted 26-14 to approve a motion to authorize the Chairman to issue subpoenas for the production of documents and to compel individuals to appear before the Committee on four specific matters within the Committee’s jurisdiction.
1.Implementation of the Secure Rural Schools program as authorized by the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000;
2.The Department of the Interior’s decision and the process to rewrite the 2008 Stream Buffer Zone Rule under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977;
3. Implementation and enforcement of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, and the Endangered Species Act; and
4. Apparent conflicts of interest by current and former Department of the Interior employees in connection with their responsibilities for administration of public lands generally.
The Committee’s actions today are in response to the Obama Administration’s failure to fully cooperate with Committee investigations on these matters and provide full, transparent answers. Requests for information have gone unanswered or been delayed for months, documents are being withheld in their entirety or heavily redacted, and the Administration has refused to make witnesses available for questioning.
“If the Administration will decide to fully cooperate, then I would be happy to never issue subpoenas. I remain hopeful that they will do so,” said Chairman Doc Hastings. “Subpoenas are not the preferred option, and I don’t want to be forced to have to compel testimony and information from the Administration. But if this is the path the Administration chooses to take, if they refuse to be transparent about their actions and decisions, then we will be left with no other choice. Foot dragging and delay tactics simply consume unnecessary time and resources. The goal is full, transparent answers – then matters can be concluded. The sooner full responses are produced, the sooner this can end.”
