    America’s Prefabricated Government

    Trump calls it rigged… I agree with Trump

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

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

    Politically Correct?

    As documented on C-SPAN Congressmen’s  videotaped  speeches

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

    Donald J. Trump and Ben Carson are outsiders

    ————————————————————–

    Is  Politically Correct speaking in Congress just  a Globalization MANTRA?

    The earliest mantras are at least 3000 years old.

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

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

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

    OUTSIDER, DONALD J. TRUMP POLITICALLY  INCORRECT  AMERICANIZATION  MANTRA?

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

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

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

    LYING’ UNSOPHISTICATED HILLARY GOT AWAY WITH ALL OF IT

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

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

    ———————————————————————————-

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    How Dam Dumb is The US Government?

    Drought and Flooding in U.S.A are a DAM  shame.

    APRIL 14, 2016 EMAIL FROM SENATOR MARIA CANTWELL

     She’s Just saying… DROUGHT IS A  SHAME

    An unprecedented drought last year and 15 YEARS OF DROUGHT ACROSS THE AMERICAN WEST have demonstrated the need to rethink U.S. water management for the 21st Century. Since 1980, droughts have cost the United States more than $200 billion. The drought last year caused widespread and serious impacts for communities, agriculture, industry and the environment. As drought is predicted to continue in the coming years and as communities throughout the United States face significant water-security challenges, it is a crucial time to evaluate and develop new strategies at the national level.

    Risk Financing for Flood: Emerging Opportunities

    Posted at 1:00 AM ET

    Flood is the largest contributor to catastrophic loss worldwide. Recent initiatives from Guy Carpenter and Marsh & McLennan Companies, both involving the peril of flood, demonstrate the diversity of approaches that can be brought to bear. In the United Kingdom, we are involved in a project where the insurance industry is working in concert with the government to adjust the industry’s approach to the peril of flood and maintain the private sector’s role as the source of insurance protection without a resultant increase in the public sector’s liability.

    IN THE UNITED STATES, A PROJECT IS BEING SPONSORED BY THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY AND THE US CONGRESS TO DETERMINE HOW THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM MIGHT BE PRIVATIZED AND HOW IT MIGHT UTILIZE REINSURANCE TO SUPPORT ITS RISK MANAGEMENT EFFORTS, AND THEREBY MOVE POTENTIAL LOSS EXPOSURE OFF THE PUBLIC BALANCE SHEET.

    Risk Analytic Tools, Part I

    Posted at 1:00 AM ET

    Public sector-related data can be expansive, containing census data, property risk characteristics, historical loss information, risk rating matrices and natural hazard event scientific tracking. In order to facilitate packaging the sometimes unwieldy data in a way that is useful for risk decision making, utilizing outside resources to improve data transparency can be valuable. Public sector resources devoted to building tools that measure risks that are perceived as “uninsurable” can unlock private sector funding.

    Risk Analytic Tools, Part II

    Posted at 1:00 AM ET

    In addition to internal risk management, models are typically used in risk transfer negotiations. Both traditional and alternative risk markets require extensive analysis of portfolios when considering risk transfer. Sharing a portfolio’s standardized model output is critical to imparting the loss potential of a particular portfolio from which risk-capital can be unlocked to support the risk financing needs of a reinsurance buyer. Using technology is critical when partnering governments with the private sector. Whether partnering with developed or emerging economies, these tools bring together the risk knowledge and historical data of the public sector with risk management techniques of the insurance industry. The result is an enhanced understanding of risk that provides stability and attracts partners.

    US Residual Markets, Part I

    Posted at 1:00 AM ET

    The US residual property insurance market segment is comprised of Fair Access to Insurance Requirements (FAIR) Plans, Beach and Windstorm Plans and two state run insurance companies – Florida Citizens Property Insurance Company (Florida Citizens) and Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation (Louisiana Citizens). These insurance facilities grew out of the civil strife in the 1960s to ensure continued access to insurance in urban areas. Over time they have evolved and their mandate has grown beyond their urban focus. Today these facilities are significant providers of some of the most wind- and earthquake-exposed property insurance in the country.

    The recent 2015 reinsurance renewals in this area demonstrated further expansion in the manner and means by which these insurance providers utilize private-sector capital to support their businesses. Traditional reinsurance remains a core component of most residual market risk financing programs. Typically these risk financing plans will also rely on retained profit, assessments and debt facilities in concert with the various forms of reinsurance to manage their exposures. The utilization of alternative risk financing capital through catastrophe bonds and/or collateralized reinsurance continues to grow with eight of 12 facilities that utilize traditional reinsurance also accessing risk transfer capacity through catastrophe bonds and/or collateralized reinsurance to help manage their loss exposures. The chart below details the increasingly diverse set of risk financing approaches employed by 11 coastal markets.

  • Exceptionalism Made American Great

    Exceptionalism Made American Great

    American Exceptionalism stems from the United States emergence from the American Revolution.

    Political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset called it “THE FIRST NEW NATION” DEVELOPING A UNIQUELY AMERICAN IDEOLOGY, “AMERICANISM”, BASED ON LIBERTY, EGALITARIANISM, INDIVIDUALISM, REPUBLICANISM, DEMOCRACY AND LAISSEZ-FAIRE FOR BUSINESS.

    As Abraham Lincoln put it in the Gettysburg address (1863),
    Americans have a duty to see that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

    It is our obligation to our dead—it is our sacred obligation’ to their children and to our children-

    THAT WE MUST NEVER FORGET WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED.

    AMERICAN PEOPLE FOUGHT AND WON THE REVOLUTION, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT ACTED, WROTE, SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE,THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    —————–
    AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM IS ONE OF THREE RELATED IDEAS.
    THE FIRST IS THAT THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES IS INHERENTLY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER NATIONS.
    SECOND IS THE IDEA THAT AMERICA HAS A UNIQUE MISSION TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD.
    THIRD IS THE SENSE THAT ITS HISTORY AND ITS MISSION GIVE THE UNITED STATES A SUPERIORITY OVER OTHER NATIONS.

  • Mandated EPA Stormwater Fee

    The Unfunded Unaffordable Mandated EPA Stormwater Program

    Thereby, In other words, the EPA’S going rate for falling rain, causing stormwater run off.

    Do any of our federal state and local elected representative care if cities, communities and families are being  nickel-and-dimed to into poverty by these unfunded Unaffordable federal mandates?

    Do any of our federal state and local elected representative care we the people are to expose to financial hardship or bankruptcy by the accumulation of unfunded Unaffordable mandates imposed by the EPA? 

    Are our federal, state and local  elected representative totally clueless ? EPA mandates could weaken municipal finances … with an unaffordable unfunded mandate, to be imposed via new stormwater management requirements.

    If a  citizen senior, or other, want water and heat for thir home, they must pay their utility bill.

    If a citizen senior or other, wants to keep their home, they must  pay their county property tax.

    City of Port Angeles WA Utility Bill

    I’ve been watching the City of Port Angeles, nickle and dime its residence into poverty, for the last year or so, with inflated utility bills.

    City Manager | Port Angeles, WA – Official Website

    https://waportangeles.civicplus.com/130/CityManager

    Find out about the Port Angeles city manager, including their roles and responsibilities and contact information. … The city manager operates as the chief executive officer of the city, and is responsible to the City Council for … 321 E 5th Street

    THE CITY MANAGER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR AND TO THE CITY COUNSEL.

    AND IN TURN THE CITY COUNSEL IS ACCOUNTABLE TO THE CITIZENS OF PA

    The city manager and city counsel have some valid excuses

    “Federal mandates are driving most of our decision making, and we are having to …. EPA’s proposed Integrated Municipal Stormwater and Wastewater Planning …

    ——————————————————————

    OK So, what was the city’s excuse for going to a 28 day billing cycle?

    Please refresh my memory?

    Where we end up paying a comparatively higher monthly amount for every 28 days.

    And, we end up with two utility bills from the city in our hands before we have had time to pay the last one… Their 28 day cycle totally screwed up my bill paying due dates around the 10th of every month.

    As these two cycles overlap, many customers are confused by when a bill is actually overdue, coupled with the arrival of a new bill.

    Then they, the city,  did some 35 day cycle mumbo jumbo so we wouldn’t get 13 utility bills in one year?

    In discussions  about the affordability of ever increasing utility bills, the average middle class working citizens in Port Angeles really don’t get it……

    This is a common comment  “I don’t understand, I keep conserving like the say, cutting back water and cutting back on electricity and still end up paying more and more”

    ——————————————–

    I GET IT… IT’S JUST ANOTHER FEE..

    I’m a senior citizen on low income Social Security. I have owned my home in Port Angeles for 40 years.  I live alone in my home with an 8 pound dog.

    I’ve been watching the City of Port Angeles, nickle and dime its senior citizens into poverty, for the last year or so, with inflated utility bills.

    I GET IT… IT’S JUST ANOTHER FEE.

    If I want water and heat in my home, I must pay the utility bill, no matter how unaffordable the EPA Wastewater Mandate Fee  becomes.

    IF I WANT TO KEEP MY HOME.. I CAN KEEP MY  HOME

    I must  pay the county property tax, no matter how unaffordable the attached EPA Wastewater Mandate Fee becomes.

    —————————–

    In addition… research indicates that…

    Property Taxes/General Fund
    Many communities fund stormwater management through property taxes paid into their general funds?
    ————————————————————-

    I see a charge of $168.00 has been added, for CITY STORMWATER RUNOFF  on my Clallam County property tax, for my home in Port Angeles WA

    My total assessment/fees Clallam County Property Tax are only $169.93.

    I see my Clallam County Tax/fee statement has doubled in cost.

    ———————————————————

    My City of Port Angeles Utility bill for Jan 2016?

    Here’s how water related charges are reflected on my statement

    SPECIFICALLY,  I’M ASKING THE CITY OF PA FOR AN ACCOUNTING, BREAK IT DOWN,  EXACTLY WHAT DOLLAR AMOUNT AM I BEING CHARGED ON MY  UTILITY BILL FOR  THE EPA UNFUNDED MANDATED  STORM WATER FEE?

    Double- lined charges reflect increases effective January 1, 2016

    WATER BASE  $3.14

    WATER BASE $26.85

    WATER CONS 0-000 $.11

    WATER CONS 0-000 $.92

    SEWER USAGE 0-429 CF $46.10

    SEWER USAGE 0-429 CF $5.18

    CSO USAGE 0-429 CF $17.17

    CSO USAGE 0-429 CF $1.93

    ——————————————

    Every water related amount on my bill is a doubled lined increase.

    So, my dog and I have the following total amounts

    WATER CONS 0-000 of $1.03 worth of water.

    And, we have a WATER BASE of $29.99

    And, we have a SEWER USAGE 0-429 CF of $51.28

    And, we have a CSO USAGE 0-429 CF of $19.10

    So, my dog and I have been billed $100.37 dollars in one month for water related costs, and paying for unfunded mandates? for WATER CONS 0-000 of $1.03 worth of water.

    And, every other line on my Utility bill has been double-lined as well  to reflect increases on my electricity, garbage, and yard waste….

    Plus a SW UTILITY TAX..

    ——————————————————

    And don’t forget…  the EPA UNFUNDED MANDATED  charge of $168.00 for CITY STORMWATER RUNOFF  on my Clallam County property tax for my home in Port Angeles WA.

    Who knew, the attorney general had defined it as a STORM WATER FEE

    AND, A SERVICE IS JUST ANOTHER FEE

    Group: Fix the national parks we have, don’t create new ones
    by Liz Bowen
    PNP comment: I don’t know who is behind this group, but this certainly sounds like a good idea. — Editor Liz Bowen
    Summary
    A group behind “free market environmentalism” said the nation’s nearly $12 billion backlog of deferred maintenance at national parks could be in part solved by taking care of the ones that already exist, instead of spending money on new ones.

    By Amy Joi O’Donoghue,
    Deseret News
    Published: Sunday, Feb. 21 2016 3:10 p.m. MST
    SALT LAKE CITY — A new report issued by a group promoting “free market environmentalism” said the national park system will observe its 100th anniversary this year with a nearly $12 billion backlog of needed maintenance — something it says seven key strategies would help reduce.
    Consider:
    • A leaky wastewater system dumped raw sewage into the streams in Yosemite.
    • Frequent ruptures in an 83-year-old pipeline system at the Grand Canyon causes water shortages and facility closures.
    • And nearly half the roads in national parks are in fair or poor condition.
    The Property and Environmental Research Center founded 35 years ago in Bozeman, Montana, issued “Breaking the Backlog,” detailing deferred maintenance projects that are five times higher than the National Park Service’s budget.
    Over the past 10 years, Congress has funded 4 percent of the agency’s total backlog, while discretionary spending to address the problem has decreased 40 percent.
    The group founded on property rights principles and markets said it is unrealistic to expect Congress to fix existing problems at national parks like roads, campgrounds, wastewater treatment systems or failing bridges because conserving new land has broader appeal and more political punch.
    The federal government, however, should stop acquiring land for national parks and instead prioritize taking care of the land it already has, the group says.
    “By focusing on land acquisition, limited conservation dollars are spent at the expense of properly maintaining existing lands,” the report notes. “Moreover, adding more public lands can exacerbate the problem because the federal government incurs even more liabilities, often with little or no means of maintaining the additional lands.”
    The group recommends reforming the (LWCF) Land and Water Conservation Fund

    —  which it said has allocated $100 million to acquire 100,000 acres from 2011-2014 — and instead dedicate the federal dollars to maintenance at existing parks.
    That idea is likely to draw cries of protest.
    Multiple key environmental organizations across the country consider the fund’s ability to facilitate the federal government’s acquisition of more public lands sacrosanct, skewering Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, when he proposed reforms last year.
    Paul Wilkins, chief conservation officer for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, a coalition of sportsmen’s organizations, said there is no need to come up with new strategies to address the maintenance backlog at national parks.

    BY HOOK OR BY CROOK, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, “IF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOESN’T WANT YOU TO DO IT,  THEY WILL MAKE IT AS DIFFICULT AS “IMPOSSIBLE”

    This is a long standing systemic violation of an American constitutional government, FROM THE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL.

    LET’S START HERE…

    FOLLOW THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS MONEY?

    As our elected government representatives, Congress acts, Congress votes, and Congress funds Congress passes the buck, our taxpayers money, through one appointed federal agency to another appointed agency, to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) a Federal program, to the (DOI) to a military contractor, to the (EPA) to (NOAA) ETAL. using a bit of nepotism here and a bit, political cronyism there, a bit of insider trading, real estate contracts, etc….

    SHALL I GO ON?

    AFTER OUR ELECTED CONGRESS HAS ACTED, ENACTED, PASSED THE LAWS, ENABLED AND EMPOWERED APPOINTED FEDERAL AGENCIES?

    —————————————————–

    OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE SAY..

    WELL, GOLLY GOSH AND GEE WHIZ… THE SPENDING OF TAXPAYER MONEY IS OUT OF OUR HANDS. THE REGULATION OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LAND… WE HAVE WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES (WOTUS)… THE TRIBES HAVE THEIR TREATY RIGHTS….

    OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE SAY..
    OUR HANDS ARE TIED? WE HAVE FEDERAL LAWS.. THE (EPA) THE CLEAN WATER ACT, THE CLEAN AIR ACT, THE (DOI) USE OF PUBLIC LAND, INCLUDING THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE, THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT (ESA) THE WILD, WILDERNESS, SCENIC WILD RIVERS ACT, SCENIC HI WAYS AND BYWAYS, (NOAA) etal.

    INDEED, OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE HAVE TO FOLLOW THE LAWS THAT THEY COLLECTIVELY ENACTED..

    SHALL I GO ON?

    ———————–

    THE TAXPAYERS MONEY IS OUT OF CONGRESS’S HANDS?

    OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE ARE NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE OR ACCOUNTABLE TO THE AMERICAN CITIZENS THAT ELECTED THEM?

    AFTER CONGRESS HAS APPROPRIATED, AND FUNDED THE APPOINTED SELF SERVING GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, THOSE AGENCIES  ARE NOT ACCOUNTABLE OR RESPONSIBLE TO AMERICAN CITIZEN.

    ——————————
    WHAT’S EVEN WORSE? HOW COULD IT BE ANY WORSE?

    AS WE FOLLOW THE TAXPAYERS MONEY TRAIL?

    OUR TAXPAYER MONEY IS ALL GONE,

    WHERE OUR TAXPAYER MONEY HAS GONE TO, IT HAS BEEN DIVERSIFIED TO FUND AND THE GRANT THE GLOBAL AGENDA 21, SELF SERVING NON-GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS (NGO) THAT HAVE ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY TO ANYONE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    —————————————————————–

    DO TAXPAYERS HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THEIR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS?
    ——————————————————
    WE THE PEOPLE ARE MAD AS HELL, FOR BEING “COMPROMISED AND DIVERSIFIED” OUT OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AND, OUR TAXPAYERS MONEY, BY THE ACTS AND ACTIONS OF THE LEFT AND RIGHT WINGS OF OUR ELECTED GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES.

    www.americanprinciplesinaction.org/…/every-child-achieves-act-a-wolf-i…
    Jul 1, 2015 – American Principles In Action has just released a list of 21 reasons to oppose the Every Child Achieves Act.
    The Every Child Achieves Act – A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
    No Child Left Behind Rewrite Will Drive a National Education Agenda The following is a nonexhaustive list of fatal problems with the bill.
    ————————————————
    1. The Every Child Achieves Act (ECAA) is 792 pages, 122 pages (20%) longer than No Child Left Behind (NCLB) — hardly a move in the right direction.

    2. Proponents cite the inclusion of new language restricting the U.S. Department of Education (USED) from, for example, coercing states into adopting the Common Core national standards. However: a. That language largely replicates existing protections (see Robert
    Eitel & Kent Talbert, The Road to a National Curriculum, PIONEER
    INSTITUTE, no.81 (2012)); b. As with existing protections, the proposed provisions fail to provide an enforcement mechanism for the states and thus depend on the goodwill of USED or congressional action (which was non-existent when USED foisted Common Core on the states); c. ECAA negates the protections anyway: A stated purpose is for state alignment to the same “college-and-career-ready” standards –language that is code for Common Core. Sec. 1001. See further discussion below.

    3. ECAA continues the USED-state master-servant relationship, requiring states to submit education plans and giving USED enormous authority to approve them. Sec. 1111(a)(4).

    4. ECAA retains federal testing mandates that children be tested for math and English in each grade 3-8 and for science once in each of the following grade spans: 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12. It also requires that these test scores be used as a “substantial” portion of a school’s grade to determine which schools will be identified for interventions, thus continuing the “teach-to-the-test” environment of NCLB. Sec. 1111(b)(2)(B)(v)(I)(aa)-(bb) and Sec. 1111(b)(3)(B)(iii)(II).

    5. ECAA adds to the list of federal programs a state must consult in developing its plan and requires standards to be aligned with federally approved workforce and early-childhood standards. Sec. 1111(a)(1) & Sec.1111(b)(1)(D).

    6. If a state plan fails to meet the requirements of a listed program, USED has the authority to disqualify the state plan unless the state agrees to make the mandated changes. Any prohibitions on USED’s interfering with state standards, assessments, and accountability don’t apply to the “requirements” of the Act. Sec. 1111(a)(4),(5).
    7. ECAA requires statewide curriculum standards, assessments, and accountability systems to prepare students “for postsecondary education or the workforce,” i.e.,
    “college- and career-ready.” The preparation for postsecondary education must (theoretically) enable the student to succeed “without remediation.” All this is code language for Common Core-aligned standards. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(D), (b)(3)(B). It thus puts downward pressure on states to keep Common Core standards, or similar standards, in place.
    8. ECAA contains a requirement for states to “demonstrate” that the state standards are “aligned” to the same criteria used to establish Common Core: “entrance requirements, without the need for academic remediation, for the system of public higher education.” Any prohibition included to stop USED from coercing states to use Common Core or other specific standards is meaningless. USED won’t have to force anything, because alignment to the same criteria as “college-and-career-ready” is a requirement of the bill. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(D)(i)-(ii).
    9. ECAA mandates that a state’s accountability system penalize schools that don’t enforce the requirement that 95% of all their students take the state assessment: The state must provide “a clear and understandable explanation of how the State will factor this requirement [95% student participation in state assessments] into their accountability system determinations.” This is an attack on parental rights and the Opt-Out movement. Sec. 1111 (b)(3)(B)(vi).
    10. ECAA dictates particular types of testing that are extraordinarily expensive, have a history of failure, and are designed to inject more intrusive psychological data-collection and psychological profiling/manipulation into the assessments. Sec. 1111(b)(2)(B)(vi) and (xiii).
    11. ECAA maintains NCLB’s requirement that the state assessment produce not just test scores, but “individual student interpretive, descriptive, and diagnostic reports.” Unlike NCLB, ECAA requires assessment on behavioral/skills-based standards rather than truly academic standards. The data produced under this language could resemble a psychological profile of the student. Sec. 1111(b)(2)(B)(x).
    12. States in PARCC and SBAC are currently required to make these profiles available to USED. Nothing would prevent USED from making other states submit those student-level profiles as well. ECAA’s limitations on what data USED may demand are too weak; USED may demand information from any “existing State or local data source.” Sec. 1111(a)(6).
    13. ECAA does nothing to stop the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) from implementing its planned and unconstitutional affective probing of students’ “mindsets,” “grit,” or other psychological traits.
    14. ECAA removes protection against socioemotional profiling in the statewide assessments (eliminating NCLB’s prohibition against including assessment items that “evaluate or assess personal or family beliefs and attitudes”) and fails to protect against other psychological data-gathering in any other federal education program covered by ESEA.

    15. ECAA continues to give the federal government influence over how states grade their schools in state accountability systems. Although it claims states may design their own systems, it negates real discretion by detailing the framework of that system and its most important requirements. Sec. 1111 (b)(3)(B)(iii).

    16. While NCLB required academic standards and achievement levels be applied to “public elementary and secondary schools,” ECAA extends the tentacles of federal control into public preschools by making this a requirement for “all public schools” and “public school students,” not just elementary and secondary. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(B)-(C).

    17. ECAA’s Early Learning Alignment and Improvement Grants (Sec. 5902) offer new federal funds that states “shall use to develop, implement, or improve . . . a statewide system . . . of voluntary early care and learning.” a. Note that this program is not exclusively for early educational programs and includes “early care,” or childcare. b. Any funding under this grant must be made available through “existing Federal, state, and local sources,” including Head Start and the Child Care and Development Block Grant, two very expensive and ineffective programs. c. States must demonstrate how they will pay for the program after the three-year federal grant expires. d. There is no evidence that such early-childhood programs have educational benefit, and significant evidence that they may actually do academic and emotional harm. e. These programs do, however, benefit the central planners by allowing government bureaucrats to gain influence over children from their earliest years.

    18. ECAA requires the statewide preschool standards to align with federal standards established under Head Start and the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 1990, creating national standards and achievement levels for our youngest students. Sec. 1111(b)(1)(D)(iii). These federal standards are heavily socio-emotional and result in the compilation of psychological data on young children.
    19. ECAA includes “school climate” formula grants. This risks giving the federal government enormous power to model citizenship, to influence what is an appropriate world-view, and to pressure schools to suppress student expression of orthodox religious values. Sec. 4103, et seq.
    20. Through these formula grants, ECAA funds “extended learning opportunities,” such as before- and after-school programs, summer programs, etc., to ensure children spend less time with their families and more at school. Sec. 4105(a)(B). The grants also fund “comprehensive school-based mental health services and supports” that will enable “early identification of social, emotional, or behavioral problems . . . .” Sec. 4105(a)(D)(ii)(I). This is more governmental surveillance of students’ attitudes and mindsets.
    21. ECAA also allots money to fulfill Sec. Arne Duncan’s expressed desire of having schools become “21st –century community learning centers” (it even uses that exact terminology). Sec. 4201 et seq. This funding would encourage students to rely on the government school, not family or church, for “a broad array of . . . services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, service learning, nutrition and health education . . . counseling programs . . . [and] financial literacy programs . . . .” [Do the drafters not see the irony of having the federal government promote “financial literacy”?] And to help out politically connected corporations, these programs should include “career and technical programs, internship or apprenticeship programs, and other ties to an in-demand industry sector or occupation for high school students . . . .” Sec. 4201(a)(2).

  • WOTUS “Water Runs Down Hill”

    WOTUS Water Runs Down Hill
    So, the LAW OF GRAVITY becomes the EPA WOTUS WATER LAW OF THE LAND?

    ———————————
    I DON’T NEED AN APPLE TO FALL ON MY HEAD TO UNDERSTAND THE GRAVITY OF WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES (WOTUS)

    Last year the administration wrote new definitions that would have subjected all waters (running down hill) within 4,000 feet of a navigable water to EPA review and control.

    —————–
    USGS WATER SCIENCE SCHOOL ” water returns to the earth from precipitation falling on the land, where “GRAVITY” either takes it into the ground as infiltration or it begins RUNNING DOWNHILL as surface runoff”

    (SO DO WETLAND WATERS JUST SEEP DOWNHILL?)

    ———————————-
    The Environmental Protection Agency says ANY BODIES OF WATER near a river, or standing water that can affect waterways will (RUN DOWN HILL AND) fall under federal regulation.

    ————————–
    NO MATTER WHERE ON EARTH WATER IS, GRAVITY RUNS WATER DOWN HILL

    —————————–
    Indeed, science has proven that each water basin has its own land area of the water cycle, including its rainfall, its snow melt, recharging the aquifer, surface water, groundwater, rain that is absorbed into the soil RUNS DOWNHILL. Rain that is not absorbed by soil RUNS OFF DOWN THE HILL

    .——————–
    But how does much of the water get back into the oceans to keep the water cycle going?
    Indeed, the U.S. Geological Survey science tells us that 93 to 97 percent of well water used for domestic or irrigation purposes, RUNS DOWN HILL and is returned to the watershed in the proximity of where it was withdrawn.

    And, ALL precipitation, rain and snow melt do the same, GRAVITY TAKES WATER DOWN HILL as infiltration or surface runoff.

    ————————————–
    The EPA says, the new rule applies to tributaries and ANY BODIES OF WATER (that runs downhill) near rivers that (run down hill and ) “COULD” seep into waterways and “AFFECT THE ENVIRONMENT”

    Judge blocks Obama EPA rule as federal power grab over state waters A federal court has granted 13 states a stay on the orders while it examines a lawsuit.

    ——————————-
    THE SUIT IN QUESTION WAS FILED BY 13 STATES (ALASKA, ARIZONA, ARKANSAS, COLORADO, IDAHO, MISSOURI, MONTANA, NEBRASKA, NEVADA, NEW MEXICO, NORTH DAKOTA, SOUTH DAKOTA AND WYOMING),
    which claimed, among other things, that the WOTUS rule is a threat to state sovereignty because it asserts federal jurisdiction over WETLANDS AND WATERS (AND EVEN SOME RELATIVELY DRY LAND)that should be subject to state government control. As a general matter (and as the Supreme Court has recognized) land-use control is generally beyond the scope of federal power. In this case, the district court concluded that the states were likely to succeed on the merits as the EPA had adopted an “exceptionally expansive” view of its own jurisdiction under the CWA. According to the court, the WOTUS rule “allows EPA regulation of waters that do not bear any effect on the ‘chemical physical, and biological integrity’ of any navigable-in-fact water,” and therefore exceeds the limits on federal regulatory authority identified by the Supreme Court in Rapanos.
    The EPA, said it will only honor the injunction in the 13 states that had sued, and will move forward with the rules in the rest of the country.

    WA STATE GOVERNMENT IS BOUND BY THE GRAVITY FED TRICKLE DOWN EFFECT of WOTUS federal jurisdiction over WETLANDS AND WATERS.
    Indeed, WA State Dept. of Ecology MUST FIRST ADOPT AND DESIGNATE THE SHORELANDS AND WETLANDS ASSOCIATED WITH ANY BODIES OF WATER, within 4,000 feet of a navigable water, including wetlands near a river, lake, saltwater, or standing water, that (run down hill) can affect waterways (run down hill and) “COULD” affect the environment, that shall fall under the WOTUS Environmental Protection Agency Clean Water Act and become subject to EPA review and control.

    (using only online public notification?)

    ———————————————————————————
    What’s Up With WOTUS?
    9/3/2015
    Implementation of the Clean Water Rule: Definition of “Waters of the United States” (usually referred to as the WOTUS rule) was set to become effective on August 28, 2015. Several lawsuits were filed by agricultural groups, among others, requesting a preliminary injunction, or order, to halt the rule’s implementation until lawsuits could be settled. Late in the afternoon on August 27, a District Court judge in North Dakota issued a preliminary injunction stopping the WOTUS rule from going into effect for thirteen states, including Nebraska.
    FOR ALL OTHER STATES WHO DIDN’T HAVE PRELIMINARY INJUNCTIONS ISSUED, THE RULE TOOK EFFECT AS PLANNED ON AUGUST 28, 2015.

    Why were lawsuits filed against the EPA and Army Corp of Engineers (CORP) following release of the final WOTUS rule? Several lawsuits were filed following publication of the final WOTUS rule in the Federal Register.

    Twenty-seven states, along with industries from petroleum to construction, and agricultural groups such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Corn Growers Association, and National Pork Producers Council all filed separate lawsuits. These numerous lawsuits have since been consolidated into a single lawsuit that identifies three arguments for vacating the rule.

    The first argument is that the finalized WOTUS rule exceeds the intended purposes of the Clean Water Act and represents an unconstitutional overreach by the federal government on land. Second, the rule-making process is designed to give the public an opportunity to comment on all aspects of a rule. In this case, EPA added items to the final rule that were not in the proposed rule.

    The third, and perhaps most concerning argument, is that the EPA may have inappropriately worked with environmental activists to lobby for the rule and support the agency’s agenda. If true, this represents an abuse of the federal rulemaking process by the EPA.

    What does the temporary injunction mean for Nebraska farmers? It means that, for now, the status quo will be maintained. So current guidance documents and existing regulations for making “jurisdictional determination” will continue to be used by the Corp. New definitions and parameters outlined in the WOTUS rule will not be part of the Corp’s checklist when making these determinations in Nebraska. Jurisdictional determination simply means that the Corp reviews the necessary checklist regarding features of a water body, and possibly conducts an on-site inspection, to make a decision about whether the water body should be under their jurisdiction as “waters of the U.S.”

    The temporary injunction does not halt the rule entirely; it simply postpones implementation of the rule until legal proceedings are completed (which could take months or even years as we saw with the new AFO/CAFO regulations a few years back).

    If the pending lawsuits are not successful, and the WOTUS rule is eventually implemented in Nebraska, it remains to be seen what parts of the rule will remain and which will not. In Nebraska, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

    UPDATE: On Friday, the plaintiff states informed the court that the U.S. EPA had announced it would continue to apply the WOTUS rule in states that did not challenge the injunction.

    Late Friday, the district court responded with an order for supplemental briefing on whether the injunction “applies nationally or in a limited geographic area.” Briefs are due on Tuesday, September 1.

    CALIFORNIA IS NOT PART OF THE LAWSUITS
    California Farmers Claim EPA Water Rules Extend To Dirt Fields
    August 31, 2015 6:22 PM
    SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY (CBS13) — Farmers say federal regulators are going too far and are taking away their water and chipping away at their property rights under a new rule.
    The Environmental Protection Agency says any bodies of water near a river, or standing water that can affect waterways will fall under federal regulation.
    Since the 1980s, the EPA has regulated any water you can navigate through, including rivers and large lakes. But the new Clean Water Act Rule will add smaller bodies of water to the government’s oversight.
    Bruce Blodgett with the San Joaquin Farm Bureau says the new rule would include any standing body of water, and dry land that can potentially hold water.
    “This field is a great example,” he said. “This dirt field would now be ‘waters of the U.S.’ under this proposed rule.”
    The bureau says the new rule allows the government to require farmers to get permits to farm from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
    “We have a lot of fields that are fallow, sitting idle this year, because of the drought,” he said. “That will enable the Corps to come after those lands when they try to bring them back into production next year saying, ‘No, those are now waters of the U.S.’”
    Under the new Clean Water Act rule, the bureau claims any private property with a pond and any farm with an irrigation district is now under federal regulation.
    But the EPA says, that’s not true. It says the new rule applies to tributaries and water near rivers that could seep into waterways and affect the environment . The agency says it’s not going after ponds and won’t interfere with farm irrigation. It says ditches that are not constructed in streams and that flow only when it rains are not covered.
    A federal court has granted 13 states a stay on the orders while it examines a lawsuit. California is not part of the lawsuits, but farmers are watching.

    WILDLAND FIRE PROTECTION AND RESPONSE IN THE UNITED STATES THE RESPONSIBILITIES, AUTHORITIES, AND ROLES OF FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL, AND TRIBAL GOVERNMENT

    ————————————————————-

    FEDERAL WILDLAND FIRE PROTECTION:

    All federal agencies that have management and administrative responsibility for large areas of federal land also have the legal authority to protect those lands from the adverse affects of wildfire. They either provide that protection themselves or through contracts and agreements with other protection organizations. This study includes the U.S.D.A. Forest Service and four agencies within the Department of the Interior: Bureau of Land Management (BLM); National Park Service (NPS); U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS); and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)

    —————————————————————

    TRIBAL WILDLAND FIRE PROTECTION:

    The BIA, through treaties and executive orders, has the responsibility to protect tribal trust lands. The BIA cannot give up that trust responsibility, but can pass the authority to manage programs and provide protection to individual tribes. Across the country there is considerable variability in how much responsibility individual tribes have asked for and accepted, as there are 562 federally recognized tribes. Tribes may accept responsibility for individual parts of the fire program, the entire program, or none of it. They may also change their mind and retrocede (give back) responsibility to the BIA.

    ————————————————————————

    STATE WILDLAND FIRE PROTECTION:

    The statutory mission of state agencies with forestry and WILDLAND fire protection responsibilities varies significantly from state to state.  However, IN GENERAL, ALL HAVE A STATUTORY RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE SERVICES IN PROTECTING STATE AND PRIVATE LANDS FROM DAMAGE BY WILDFIRE. With rare exception, state agencies support and carryout suppression programs that provide for rapid and aggressive initial response to wildfires, with the intent of minimizing their spread. Because of the diversity in organizational relationships from state to state, it is difficult to succinctly and completely summarize state responsibilities, authorities, and roles on a national scale. However, state protection programs are described in detail for the 11 study states (WA State was one of the 11 states studied in detail)

    ———————————————————-

    LOCAL WILDLAND FIRE PROTECTION:

    It is even more difficult to characterize local WILDLAND fire protection on a national basis. There is considerable diversity in legal responsibilities and authorities, not only among states, but also within states. The need for organized WILDLAND fire protection is generated at the “grass-roots” or citizen/landowner level. Most states have statutes that simply provide local government (or landowners themselves) the option to choose to have (and pay for) fire protection if they deem it necessary. It is important to note that local fire protection (structural and WILDLAND) may not be provided by government entities. Often, fire protection is provided to citizens/landowners by non-governmental entities, such as fire districts and volunteer fire departments, which are independent of county government. Common types of local fire departments include: municipal, county, district, township, volunteer, and private.

    Note that representatives from INDIAN TRIBES WHO SERVE ON FIRE TEAMS MUST ALSO BE RED CARD QUALIFIED. Cultural resource staff that play active roles during WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT ACTIVITIES SHOULD COMPLETE WILDLAND FIRE RESOURCE ADVISOR (READ) TRAINING.

    Staff must successfully complete WILDLAND FIRE COURSES S130/190 and pass a work capacity test (“pack test”), outlined in PMS 310-1 Wildland Fire Qualifications System Guide (.pdf). To work on fire lines without an escort, a READ must maintain an arduous rating.

    A Recommended National Program In WEATHER MODIFICATION

    A Report to the Interdepartmental Committee for Atmospheric Sciences

    by Homer E. Newell

    Associate Administrator for Space Science and Application

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration Washington, D.C.

    Interdepartmental Committee for Atmospheric Sciences

    The gradually accumulating evidence of positive results from efforts at

    weather modification led the Committee on Atmospheric Sciences of the

    National Academy of Sciences, in November 1963, to appoint a Panel

    on Weather and Climate Modification “to undertake a deliberate and

    thoughtful review of the present status and activities in this field.

    On June 16, 1964, the Director of the National Science Foundation announced the

     appointment of a Special Commission on Weather Modification. in its review of the

    field, the Commission activated seven subgroups to study the physical, biological, statistical,

    social, international, legal and legislative, and administration and funding aspects of

    weather and climate modification.

    —————————————————————————————–

    This is the comment that prefaced the above.

    Dane Wigington
    geoengineeringwatch.org

    The document contained below is very damning and revealing, I located it in the NASA archives in late October of 2012. It should be a stark wake up call for any that still deny the existence of massive covert weather modification programs which are coordinated by various governments around the world.

    This file report outlines in great detail the existence of expanding US weather modification programs as far back as 1956, a full decade earlier than the date of the document in question. A “special commission” is outlined in this document to coordinate the multiple governmental agencies involved with US weather modification programs as well as independent contractors and universities which the report also mentions. It covers the “management” of international impacts, legal and social ramifications, species disruptions, biological consequences, etc.

    A rapidly increasing mountain of data makes ever more clear that almost none of us alive today have known completely natural weather. That massive covert government programs have been playing “God” with the biosphere for well over 60 years, perhaps even longer. In recent years the scope and scale of these devastating weather modification programs has been ramped up so much that the entire climate system and biosphere is now hanging in the balance.

    The lethal nature of the ongoing “geoengineering” programs can not be overstated. Life on our planet is in freefall for many reasons, but mathematically speaking climate engineering is the greatest assault of all against life on Earth.

    Documents like the one linked below need to be shown to those that continue to deny the ongoing climate engineering reality. With each passing day radical fluctuations in weather continue to accelerate as a direct result of the ongoing geoengineering insanity. Geoengineering must be brought into the light of day and to a halt. Those responsible for the climate engineering programs should be seen criminals that have participated in ecocide and genocide. The corporate media and the “meteorologists” that serve them must also be exposed FOR  THEIR PART IN HIDING THE AEROSOL SPRAYING ASSAULT from public veiw. Each and every one of us are needed to assist in the most critical effort to reach critical mass of awareness, lets make every day count in this battle.
