  • Clallam Co SMP Update Cathy Lear-DOE-ESA

    Clallam Co SMP Update Cathy Lear, Ecology et al. and ESA Margaret Clancy

    NOV 14, 2017 After researching the  SMP Update from 2009,  Discovery is in its infancy with a multitude of unanswered questions.

    2017 SMP Update Draft Discovery, public information documents, laying down the evidence, laying down the laws, Public notice and participation, laying down Ecology’s unscientific evidence, and in furtherance of the discover and due process of law, demanding answers to ten (10) unanswered questions from Ecology’s and nineteen (19) unanswered questions from Clallam County DCD Planning Dept Director Mary Ellen Winborn.

    Discovery: Cathy Lear, ia a Clallam County employee,  she was identified as the Project Manager for the Clallam County DCD SMP Update Draft on public request documents.

    The Clallam County Board of Commissioners  BOCC must question, Cathy Lear at a Public meeting and demand all documents relevant to the SMP Update from day one.

    Specifically, When, how and why ESA Adolfson  was awarded the SMP Update contract? Was there and open bid process by the BOCC for the contract?

    Or? Were the citizens of Clallam County, and our pristine private shoreline property,  just sucked into the contract with ESA Adolfson , by a process of coordination, linked to Jefferson County, Port Townsend and Sequim for consistency and compliance?

    ESA Adolfson has been document as the compliance experts, consultants, facilitators  in 25 WA State city  and county SMP Updates.

    Interestingly enough, as  Contractors, ESA Adolfson never gets sued

    The BOCC  must Question ESA Adolfson’s Margaret Clancy on her Whatcom County SMP Update, and the ten year legal battle (LAHRS V. WHATCOM COUNTY)  paid for by the citizens of Whatcom County.

    As the consultant for Whatcom County SMP Update, Margaret Clancy did not get sued.

    LAYING DOWN THE LAW  RCW 90.58.100 IN EVIDENCE

     (6) Each master program shall contain standards governing the protection of single family residences and appurtenant structures against damage or loss due to shoreline erosion. The standards shall govern the issuance of substantial development permits for shoreline protection, including structural methods such as construction of bulkheads, and nonstructural methods of protection. The standards shall provide for methods which achieve effective and timely protection against loss or damage to single family residences and appurtenant structures due to shoreline erosion.

    LEGAL ISSUES ON THE DCD 2017 SMP UPDATE DRAFT

    Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District (2013)
    The U.S. Supreme Court handed a victory to all property owners by ruling in favor of Coy Koontz Jr., represented by PLF attorneys, in his constitutional challenge to the heavy, unjustified demands that his family faced as a condition for a building permit. The 5-4 ruling affirms that the Fifth Amendment protects landowners from government extortion, whether the extortion is for money or any other form of property.

    Subject:  IN COLD BLOOD

    Original Message (an email  I received today)

    1. KILMER My question would be: Why have you and our U.S. Senators in Washington State, sat on your hands, bathing in the cold blood of our U.S. citizens being murdered by Muslim’s? Particularly in GUN FREE ZONES! How dare the governments of OUR country vote to remove our second amendment right to protect our FAMILIES. In our supermarkets, department stores, movie theaters, sports events, airports, train & bus stations, our military bases and in Our OWN HOUSES on OUR OWN land. CLOSE the borders now sir! Islam has claimed WAR ON THE U.S. It’s time Congress did the same and hold OUR president accountable for the blood baths across the globe, as his democrat colleagues cheer him on. How many dead victims from Muslim attacks since 9/11? Piece by piece Mr. Kilmer the attacks on American soil continue and may have even surpassed the numbers that actually perished in the Trade Center tragedy. What is wrong in Olympia? Are you all enjoying the duck shoots rampaging across the country?
      Do something or please step down. All of you. Close the borders and STOP immigration and Refugees (?) from entering our country NOW! This is WAR! Our Congress is guilty of murder Mr. Kilmer. How many more men, women and children have to die because of your inaction? Do the job you were hired to do.

    OR THE BIGGER QUESTION IS DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT YOUR JOB IS?

    ——————————————————–

    For clarification and identification  of the  Washington  State elected Representatives in congress they are Rep. Derek Kilmer (D) and Senators Maria Cantwell (D) and Patty Murray (D)

    Orlando massacre JUST  ANOTHER radical Islamic terrorist attack on American Citizens

    JUST ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY for the liberals (D)  to “JUMP ON THE GUN CONTROL” in congress

    As a voting American citizen, I agree 100% with the questions, suggestions and conclusion in the above comment..

    JEANETTE FINICUM RESPONDS TO OREGON STATE AND FBI INVESTIGATIVE REPORT

    According to the news story from Portland Oregon: “Officials investigating the death of Robert [LaVoy] Finicum are ready to release results” of the fatal shooting “during a Jan. 26 traffic stop while trying to arrest the rancher and others involved in the takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge.”

    ———————————————————————————–

    NEWS RELEASE
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Contact: Cherilyn Bacon Eagar
    for the LaVoy Finicum family
    Cell: 801-592-4245
    Email: Cherilyn@CherilynEagar.com

    March 8, 2016, St. George, UT.
    — LaVoy Finicum’s wife Jeanette Finicum released this statement at a news conference in St. George, Utah:
    The news conference held earlier today in Bend, Oregon to release the report of the investigation regarding my husband’s death was to be expected. No surprises. The purpose of that announcement was for state and federal agencies to continue to lay the foundation of their legal case.
    However, they also continue to bring forward selective evidence. As in all such situations there is another side to this story. We will provide a more thorough analysis at a follow up news conference tomorrow and will be taking questions at that time. Meanwhile, we continue to maintain my husband’s innocence.
    According to the news story from Portland Oregon: “Officials investigating the death of Robert [LaVoy] Finicum are ready to release results” of the fatal shooting “during a Jan. 26 traffic stop while trying to arrest the rancher and others involved in the takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge.”
    As a family, along with our lawyers, we deny this statement. This was not a traffic stop. It was an ambush with a roadblock placed on a blind curve along a lonely stretch of highway. I am told that in law enforcement and prosecuting circles this is called a “Deadman’s blockade,” and is designed to allow a “kill stop” which is illegal.
    The news story continues: “The FBI said Finicum was shot after reaching for a gun…”. We reject that statement. The FBI’s aerial video was of poor quality, edited and provided no audio. Our family asserts that he was shot with both hands up, he was not reaching for anything at the time of the first shot. He was walking with his hands in the air, a symbol of surrender. When he reached down to his left hip he was reacting to the pain of having been shot.
    I can hardly believe that a team of qualified law officers could look at the facts in this case and say that no criminal laws were violated.
    How could they have reached this decision in the face of evidence that clearly shows intent to kill my husband?
    We have talked with an independent investigator who has stated that the “video proves a set up assassination.”
    Many people, including my lawyers, have tried to prepare me for this—-“be strong”, “accept this with peace” —–but I don’t think anything could prepare me to accept what is so clearly a finding that challenges the Constitution that my husband died defending.
    I know that under the Constitution the men who shot my husband to death, while he was surrendering, are entitled to due process of law—-but they are not entitled to walk free and not have to face the same legal process that is a barrier to you or to me.
    They shot my husband, they left him lying in the snowbank—no medical assistance, no charges, no arraignment, no preliminary hearing, no indictment, and no trial by a jury, — and should they just walk free? It just is not right.
    The consolation I have is that hundreds of thousands of Americans have seen and know the truth and believe as I do that my husband was murdered “intentionally, deliberately and with malice.”
    My lawyer has assured me that we will seek justice in a different court, under different circumstances—and I look forward to the day when these men do face a jury that is unbiased enough to return a fair verdict.
    After the Finicum funeral, rallies spontaneously began to organize in many states. The organizers counted, possibly as many as 300 rallies took place throughout the country, in every state but Rhode Island.
    It has been asked how this movement got such momentum so quickly. When Americans heard the details of this story and how these American patriots who have no criminal record and who have stood on the same interpretation of the US Constitution as Justice Scalia have been treated, the actions of law enforcement and the FBI have “shock [ed] the conscience.” Our Supreme Court has set as the standard guideline for practices of law enforcement that are unacceptable to our society, as those that “shock the conscience”.
    A Deadman’s blockade with the intent to kill “shocks the conscience.” Shooting to kill with both hand up “shocks the conscience.”
    Violating the 8th Amendment – cruel and unusual punishment – by placing Americans with no criminal records, who are apparently guilty of defending the US Constitution and the overreach of federal authorities, into solitary confinement and then removing their constitutional right to bear arms are two examples of how elected and appointed officials in the court system, legislative bodies and in law enforcement are violating the Constitution they swear to uphold.
    The Supreme Court has referred to solitary confinement as being “violently insane.” The court has recognized that solitary confinement tortures our human brain and diminishes our God given strength to overcome obstacles.
    Solitary confinement is a form of torture that often drives prisoners mad.
    Last year a Supreme Court Justice wrote a concurring opinion that described the history of solitary confinement and said the practice bears a “peculiar mark of infamy” in its ability to shatter the minds and spirits of prisoners.
    Who are we? We are outraged that men and women who have no criminal records and who posed no threat during the protest in Oregon are being treated as mere animals.
    The American people are outraged at this inhumanity, this brutality and barbarism by the courts and law enforcement. It has created a new American awakening from both the Left and the Right. It “shocks our conscience.” And that is why around 300 rallies spontaneously organized in support of my husband’s assassination and these patriots who are being held as political prisoners.
    Again, my lawyer has assured me that we will seek justice in a different court, under different circumstances—
    We will be commenting on the FBI’s and Deschutes County press release tomorrow after we review their findings fully.
    Thank you.

    Bottom line

    ARE YOU ANGRY NOW? ARE YOU VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP?


  • 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.

    ——————————————————————
    MR TRUMP IS AN EXCEPTIONAL CANDIDATE FOR AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

    THE GOP HIGH COMMAND SEEMS INCAPABLE OF STOPPING HIM.

    A HOSTILE TAKEOVER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BY DONALD TRUMP?

    A hostile takeover is the acquisition of one company (called the target company) by another (called the acquirer) that is accomplished not by coming to an agreement with the target company’s management, BUT BY GOING DIRECTLY TO THE COMPANY’S SHAREHOLDERS or fighting to replace management in order to get the acquisition …

    ON SUPER TUESDAY DONALD TRUMP’S HOSTILE TAKEOVER

    NOT BY COMING TO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE GOP’S ESTABLISHMENT

    BUT BY GOING DIRECTLY TO THE COUNTRY’S SHAREHOLDERS

    TRUMP- SHALL “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”

    THE GOP HIGH COMMAND SEEMS INCAPABLE OF STOPPING HIM.

    Mar. 3, 2016, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s dominant start to the presidential primary process looks LIKE IT COULD CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS, ACCORDING TO POLLS surveying upcoming state’s contests.

    Thirteen states hold primaries or caucuses over the next two weeks. Of them, TRUMP IS LEADING POLLS IN NINE, according to the RealClearPolitics average, including some of the most important, winner-take-all states.

    Polls were accurate in predicting Trump wins in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, Vermont, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Tennessee.

     THE LAW OF THE LAND AND  DUE PROCESS OF LAW

    The Constitution states only one command twice. The Fifth Amendment says to the federal government that no one shall be “deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.”

    The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution each contain a due process clause. Due process deals with the administration of justice and thus the due process clause acts as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the Government outside the sanction of law.

    Facebook Moves to Ban Private Gun Sales on Its Site and Instagram

    JAN 29, 2016 New York Times‎ – 17 hours ago

    full text

    Facebook is banning private sales of guns on its flagship social network and its Instagram photo-sharing service, a move meant to clamp down on unlicensed gun transactions.

    Facebook already prohibits people from offering marijuana, pharmaceuticals and illegal drugs for sale, and the company said on Friday that it was updating its policy to include guns. The ban applies to private, person-to-person sales of guns. Licensed gun dealers and gun clubs can still maintain Facebook pages and post on Instagram.

    Although Facebook was not directly involved in gun sales, it has served as a forum for gun sales to be negotiated, without people having to undergo background checks. The social network, with 1.6 billion monthly visitors, had become one of the world’s largest marketplaces for guns and was increasingly evolving into an e-commerce site where it could facilitate transactions of goods.

    Facebook said it would rely on its vast network of users to report any violations of the new rules, and would remove any post that violated the policy. Beyond that, the company said it could ban users or severely limit the ways they post on Facebook, depending on the type and severity of past violations. If the company believed someone’s life was in danger, Facebook would work with law enforcement on the situation.

    Facebook will also rely on user reports of private gun sales that occur between members via Facebook Messenger, the company’s private messaging service. Facebook does not scan the content of those messages.

    “Over the last two years, more and more people have been using Facebook to discover products and to buy and sell things to one another,” Monika Bickert, Facebook’s head of product policy, said in a statement. “We are continuing to develop, test and launch new products to make this experience even better for people and are updating our regulated goods policies to reflect this evolution.”

    New York’s attorney general, Eric T. Schneiderman, who has pressed for restrictions on illegal gun sales on Facebook and other sites, praised the company’s move.

    “Today’s announcement is another positive step toward our shared goal of stopping illegal online gun sales once and for all,” he said in a statement on Friday.

    Facebook plays host to scores of online groups that cater to gun enthusiasts, with members posting pictures and details about an individual gun, or a gun they might be looking to buy. Many of the groups are private, meaning that Facebook users may need to be approved by an administrator before they can see or write posts.

    Unlike professional gun sellers, hobbyists who sell or trade a few guns a year are not typically required to be licensed by the federal government. Some, like Scott Schmoke of Florida, say that Facebook helps them sell just a handful of weapons a year. Mr. Schmoke said in an interview this month that he always insisted on meeting potential buyers face-to-face, to feel them out.

    “I go to a secure location, and I say, ‘Can I see your driver’s license? Do you have a concealed-weapons permit?’ ” Mr. Schmoke said. If he gets a bad feeling, he does not sell, he said.

    But as an unlicensed seller, Mr. Schmoke is under no obligation to perform any kind of background check. Federal authorities have expressed worries that the Internet has fueled the sale of guns to felons and others who might normally be blocked from buying firearms.

    Facebook has taken some steps to regulate gun sales over the years. In 2014, it said it would limit gun sales on its site and on Instagram, including by shielding minors from Facebook pages that advertised guns for sale.

    But since then, Facebook has been inching toward facilitating e-commerce transactions. In December, the company introduced a project that directs users to local businesses and services that are well-reviewed on Facebook. Facebook can also store users’ credit card information. And in recent months, Facebook made it possible to send peer-to-peer payments through Messenger.

    Facebook’s progression toward on-site payments underscored the need to update the company’s content policy, a Facebook spokeswoman said.

    The company has also been pushed by gun safety groups including Everytown for Gun Safety, an umbrella group that united the efforts of two separate organizations of mayors and mothers to promote gun safety. Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, one of those two advocacy groups, said she met with senior Facebook officials repeatedly over the last two years.

    Everytown for Gun Safety presented Facebook with research connecting unlicensed gun sales on the site to gun violence. For example, Ms. Watts said, in December 2014, an Ohio man, Brian Harleman, shot and wounded his ex-girlfriend and killed her 10-year-old daughter before killing himself. Although prohibited from buying firearms because of a felony conviction, he was able to buy the weapon in an unlicensed sale on Facebook.

    “We were saying, ‘Please stop the unfettered access to guns on Facebook,’ ” Ms. Watts, a mother of five in Colorado, said in an interview.

    Because of Facebook’s tremendous influence, she said, its decision to ban person-to-person sales of guns will have ripple effects on gun policy nationwide.

    “What they’re doing is sending such an incredibly strong, sentinel signal to the world that America is working in the right direction on guns,” she said. “For them to take a stand and do the right thing gives cover to other businesses to do the right thing.”

    My question to my ELECTED federal and state representatives.
    DO YOU ABIDE BY  THE LAW OF THE LAND AND CONSTITUTIONAL  DUE PROCESS OF LAW ON GUN CONTROL IN YOUR LEGISLATION?

  • The Silent Majority Defined 1933-1968-2016

    The Silent Majority Defined 1933-1968-2016

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

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

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

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

    “WHEN THEY CAME I DID NOT SPEAK”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    2015-2016 Donald Trump is campaigning on A SILENT MAJORITY PLATFORM
    DONALD TRUMP IS CAMPAIGNING ON A PLATFORM DESIGNED TO REACH THE “SILENT MAJORITY” of middle class and working class Americans. The Donald promises to “bring us together again,” and many Americans, weary after years of antiwar and civil rights protests, are happy at the prospect of peace returning to their streets.
    ——————————————————————————
    NIXON CAMPAIGNED ON FOREIGN POLICY WAS ALSO A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. Humphrey was saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to what appeared to be absolute futility and agony in Vietnam. NIXON PROMISED TO FIND A WAY TO “PEACE WITH HONOR” IN VIETNAM, though Nixon was never entirely clear about how this was to be accomplished.
    ———————————————————————————
    2016 TRUMP campaign IS ON FOREIGN POLICY WHICH IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. AMERICA IS CURRENTLY saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to the absolute futility FOURTEEN YEARS OF WAR AND CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
    Trump has promised to find a way to “peace with honor” in the middle east, AND THE DONALD IS PERFECTLY AND ENTIRELY CLEAR ON HOW THIS IS TO BE ACCOMPLISHED.
    ———————————————————————————–
    1968 Richard Nixon campaigned on A SILENT MAJORITY PLATFORM

  • Olympia WA Has Gone Anti-Gun Crazy

    The Truth of the Day….

    THE COMMON TRUTH BLOG  is dedicated to speaking the truth on subjects we see every day; common  things. Common Truth. Many of us know it, some do not, yet; as the banner page says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident”. They speak for themselves for they come from within us, not from the media, not from politicians but from the common sense within. Thus, The Common truth.

     

    It’s the first week of the new 2016 legislative session in Olympia WA and the anti-gun politicians have wasted no time in sending out a series of bills designed to impact over two million law abiding gun owners. It seems irrelevant to them that the Washington State Constitution says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be impaired” even though they have all sworn to protect and defend that constitution. It is irrelevant to them that Washington State does not have a gun problem and has one of the lowest gun homicide rates in the nation. So what is relevant to them?

    Perhaps it is owing to the well-funded anti-gun pressure from billionaires like Michael Bloomberg and Nick Hanauer. There is no quicker way to get your agenda out in the limelight than to fund campaigns. Every town for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action are well funded. It is no secret that many of these politicians are literally card carrying members of these organizations.

    The saddest part of this is that none of the bills they advocate will prevent criminal homicides. In fact, several may also cause an increase by disarming people and setting up target areas for the criminal elements to prey on defenseless victims. Just remember, it is already a felony to use a gun in the commission of a crime so how they expect making it a felony to be a law abiding gun owner to reduce gun crime is ludicrous.

    They are very good at ignoring the facts but I will present them once again so that you are informed and can take action. In Washington State, there were 118 gun homicides in 2014. There were 548 traffic fatalities. So if you get in a car, you are almost 5 times as likely to be killed in that car as by a gun. You are 4 times as likely to die from the flu. In fact, you are over 100X as likely to die from medical malpractice so don’t worry about the gun owner; fear your doctor.

    What are these bills they propose, what do they mean and how do they affect you is as follows:

    HB 2354 (“assault weapon” ban) – The most onerous of all, this bill would ban anything that looks scary and is no more powerful (less so) than a bolt action hunting rifle. It also limits magazine capacity so that if you did have to defend yourself, you better be a good shot. How many times have we seen trained policemen empty their firearms to stop a criminal and that’s just one assailant? There is also no corresponding data that says these weapons are used in crimes.

    ————————————————–
    HB 2372 (Firearm destruction) – This bill is about allowing the destruction of firearms taken from those in the commission of a crime. It goes a step further however; in that they can destroy your firearms if ou are accused of a crime. Too bad if you are found innocent; your property has been destroyed.

    ————————————–
    HB 2374 (Ammo tax) – This one charges a .05 per round tax on every round of ammunition sold in WA State. How that prevent crime is beyond me and all I see is local business harmed as people now purchase from out of state. Maybe if they really need the fund, they should charge a penalty every time an anti-gun politician tells a lie. We would rake in millions.

    ——————————————–
    HB 2460 (making it unlawful to carry in public) – This one is deadly serious. It not only nullifies WA States open carry but makes it criminal to conceal carry even with a permit in a variety of places. Effectively, it designates a boatload of “GUN FREE ZONES ” which we know are target areas for criminals. This will without a doubt, create additional deaths as people who obey the law become targets.

    ————————————————-
    HB 1747 and companion SB 5789 (Firearm storage) – Now they want to be in your home and require your guns be locked up. Not a bad idea if you have little children as you want to keep them out of reach, but locked away means asking an intruder to wait while you go open your gun safe. This was on the agenda last year and we effectively killed the bill.

    ——————————————–
    HB 1857 Concerning extreme risk protective orders. – This doozy allows any family member or law enforcement with a grudge to say you are a danger or made a threat (verbal) in the last six months and you lose your gun rights. No proof needed and no other action because if you were a threat, shouldn’t something more be done? This too was a carryover that took quite a fight and the aid of the ACLU, NRA and various rights activists.

    ———————————————————

    In short, yes; they are coming to take your guns but only if you let them. I urge you to use the 1-800 number below and tell them each bill number and that you oppose it. Also, each bill above is hyperlinked so that you can comment directly. If you value your rights, do this today and hold them accountable.

    Legislative Hotline – 1-800-562-6000

    They will ask your name, address and telephone and which bills you wish to comment. That in turn goes to your 3 WA State reps.

    ———————————————————-

    As an American Citizen I support the Second Amendment Constitutional Right for  “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be impaired”

    If you value your right to bear arms…

    IF YOU ARE AGAINST MORE GUN CONTROL….

    Remember, Silence implies consent. Let your voice be heard.

    My website is my voice… against more GUN CONTROL.

    Below is an email comment I received.

    Subject: Gun Control -For Jay Inslee by Rene Holaday

    Governor Inslee,

    Because I am not one of your “yes men”, I’m going to share a different point of view with you that you won’t get from your immediate circle of influence.
    When you were sworn into office, did you not take the oath of office, in which you were sworn to uphold both the US and WA State Constitution? Did you swear to that oath, or was that just a lie in your own mind? A person who dos not swear to uphold the Constitution is flat out NOT ALLOWED to take an elected office representing the people. Why is that? Let me tell you why; the Constitution is the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND. The oath of office simply guarantees that you will follow the laws as they are currently written. If you do not uphold the law, then that makes you a criminal or engaging in criminal practices. Attempting to infringe upon the 2nd amendment at all is against the law.
    In response to this appalling letter of yours (below), let me remind you that you have zero authority that is above the 2nd Amendment of the Supreme Law of the Land. I am so appalled by your clear disconnect from the people of WA State that you are supposed to be representing. You are not allowed to gut the 2nd Amendment, and for trying, you should be recalled for violation of your oath of office. Not everybody agrees with your idea that “the people” should have no way to defend themselves, while government and law enforcement are beefing up their own arsenals. Are you planning to dismantle all weaponry the State holds or just that of the people?? I’m sure you still want law enforcement to have full access to their weapons right?
    The point is that you must uphold the law, and for trying so hard to undermine it, you should be recalled. Lawlessness by elected officials will not be tolerated. You are subject to the laws as they are written-period.
    People are at least 5 times more likely to be killed by a car than they are a gun, yet I have seen no letter from you demanding that cars be restricted in a concern for public health…?? Iatrogenics is still the #1 killer in the nation, so you had also better alert people to poor medical practices as well. Funny thing though- you could actually care less about public health, and you seek only to remove people’s ability to defend themselves by gutting the 2nd Amendment.
    We won’t stand for it Mr. Inslee and we would be happy to elect or appoint your replacement who will uphold their oath of office.

    One of the many hundreds of thousands, if not millions, that you are failing to represent in WA State,

    Rene’ Holaday

    STAGE I
    A. To Establish an International Disarmament Organization:
    (a) An International Disarmament Organization (IDO) shall be established within the framework of the United Nations upon entry into force of the agreement. Its functions shall be expanded progressively as required for the effective verification of the disarmament program.
    (b) The IDO shall have: (1) a General Conference of all the parties; (2) a Commission consisting of representatives of all the major powers as permanent members as permanent members and certain other states on a rotating basis; and (3) an Administrator who will administer the Organization subject to the direction of the Commission and who will have the authority, staff, and finances adequate to assure effective impartial implementation of the functions of the Organization.

    B. To Reduce Armed Forces and Armaments:
    (a) Force levels shall be limited to 2.1 million each for the U.S. and U.S.S.R. and to appropriate levels not exceeding 2.1 million each for all other militarily significant states. Reductions to the agreed levels will proceed by equitable, proportionate, and verified steps.
    (b) Levels of armaments of prescribed types shall be reduced by equitable and balanced steps. The reductions shall be accomplished by transfers of armaments to depots supervised by the IDO. When, at specified periods during the Stage I reduction process, the states party to the agreement have agreed that the armaments and armed forces are at prescribed levels, the armaments in depots shall be destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    (c) The production of agreed types of armaments shall be limited.

    (e) States owning nuclear weapons shall not relinquish control of such weapons to any nation not owning them and shall not transmit to any such nation information or material necessary for their manufacture. States not owning nuclear weapons shall not manufacture such weapons, attempt to obtain control of such weapons belonging to other states, or seek or receive information or materials necessary for their manufacture.
    (f) A Nuclear Experts Commission consisting of representatives of the nuclear states shall be established within the IDO for the purpose of examining and reporting on the feasibility and means for accomplishing the verified reduction and eventual elimination of nuclear weapons stockpiles.
    D. To Reduce Strategic Nuclear Weapons Delivery Vehicles:
    (a) Strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles in specified categories and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be reduced to agreed levels by equitable and balanced steps. The reduction shall be accomplished in each step by transfer to depots supervised by the IDO of vehicles that are in excess of levels agreed upon for each step. At specified periods during the Stage I reduction process, the vehicles that have been placed under supervision of the IDO shall be destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    (b) Production of agreed categories of strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be discontinued or limited.

The notification shall include the geographic areas to be used and the nature, scale and time span of the event.
    (b) There shall be established observation posts at such locations as major ports, railway centers, motor highways, and air bases to report on concentrations and movements of military forces.
    (c) There shall also be established such additional inspection arrangements to reduce the danger of surprise attack as may be agreed.
    (d) An international commission shall be established immediately within the IDO to examine and make recommendations of the possibility of further measures to reduce the risks of nuclear war by accident, miscalculation, or failure of communication.
    G. To Keep the Peace:
    (a) States shall reaffirm their obligations under the U.N. Charter to refrain from the threat or use of any type of armed force – including nuclear, conventional, or CBR – contrary to the principles of the U.N. Charter.
    (b) States shall agree to refrain from indirect aggression and subversion against any country.
    (c) States shall use all appropriate processes for the peaceful settlement of disputes and shall seek within the United Nations further arrangements for the peaceful settlement of international disputes and for the codification and progressive development of international law.
    (d) States shall develop arrangements in Stage I for the establishment in Stage II of a U.N. Peace Force.
    (e) A U.N. peace observation group shall be staffed with a standing cadre of observers who could be despatched to investigate any situation which might constitute a threat to or breach of the peace.
    STAGE II

    (b) Levels of armaments of prescribed types shall be further reduced by equitable and balanced steps. The reduction shall be accomplished by transfers of armaments to depots supervised by the IDO. When, at specified periods during the Stage II reduction process, the parties have agreed that the armaments and armed forces are at prescribed levels, the armaments in depots shall be destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    (c) There shall be further agreed restrictions on the production of armaments.
    (d) Agreed military bases and facilities wherever they are located shall be dismantled or converted to peaceful uses.
    (e) Depending upon the findings of the Experts Commission on CBR weapons, the production of CBR weapons shall be halted, existing stocks progressively reduced, and the resulting excess quantities destroyed or converted to peaceful uses.
    C. To Further Reduce the Nuclear Threat:
    Stocks of nuclear weapons shall be progressively reduced to the minimum levels which can be agreed upon as a result of the findings of the nuclear Experts Commission; the resulting excess of fissionable material shall be transferred to peaceful purposes.
    D. To Further Reduce Strategic Nuclear Weapons Delivery Vehicles:
    Further reductions in the stocks of strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be carried out in accordance with the procedure outlined in Stage I.
    E. To Keep the Peace:
    During Stage II, states shall develop further the peace-keeping processes of the united Nations, to the end that the United Nations can effectively in Stage III deter or suppress any threat or use of force in violation of the purposes and principles of the united Nations:
    (a) States shall agree upon strengthening the structure, authority, and operation of the united Nations so as to assure that the United Nations will be able effectively to protect states against threats to or breaches of the peace.
    (b) The U.N. Peace Force shall be established and progressively strengthened.
    (c) States shall also agree upon further improvements and developments in rules of international conduct and in processes for peaceful settlement of disputes and differences.
    STAGE III
    By the time Stage II has been completed, the confidence produced through a verified disarmament program, the acceptance of rules of peaceful international behavior, and the development of strengthened international peace-keeping processes within the framework of the U.N. should have reached a point where the states of the world can move forward to Stage III. In Stage III progressive controlled disarmament and continuously developing principles and procedures of international law would proceed to a point where no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force (emphasis added) and all international disputes would be settled according to the agreed principles of international conduct.
    The progressive steps to be taken during the final phase of the disarmament program would be directed toward the attainment of a world in which:
    (a) States would retain only those forces, non-nuclear armaments, and establishments required for the purpose of maintaining internal order; they would also support and provide agreed manpower for a U.N. Peace Force.
    (b) The U.N. Peace Force, equipped with agreed types and quantities of armaments, would be fully functioning.
    (c) The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes.
    (d) The peace-keeping capabilities of the United Nations would be sufficiently strong and the obligations of all states under such arrangements sufficiently far-reaching as to assure peace and the just settlement of differences in a disarmed world.

    INTRODUCTION
    The revolutionary development of modern weapons within a world divided by serious ideological differences has produced a crisis in human history. In order to overcome the danger of nuclear war now confronting mankind,
    THE UNITED STATES
    HAS INTRODUCED AT THE SIXTEENTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE UNITED NATIONS A PROGRAM FOR GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT IN A PEACEFUL WORLD.
    This new program provides for the progressive reduction of the war-making capabilities of nations and the simultaneous STRENGTHENING OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS to settle disputes and maintain the peace. It sets forth a series of comprehensive measures which can and should be taken in order to bring about a world in which there will be freedom from war and security for all states. It is based on three principles deemed essential to the achievement of practical progress in the disarmament field:
    FIRST, THERE MUST BE IMMEDIATE DISARMAMENT ACTION:
    A STRENUOUS AND UNINTERRUPTED EFFORT MUST BE MADE TOWARD THE GOAL OF GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT; at the same time, it is important that specific measures be put into effect as soon as possible.
    Second, ALL DISARMAMENT OBLIGATIONS MUST BE SUBJECT TO EFFECTIVE INTERNATIONAL CONTROLS:
    The control organization must have the manpower, facilities, and effectiveness to assure that limitations or reductions take place as agreed. It must also be able to certify to all states that retained forces and armaments do not exceed those permitted at any stage of the disarmament process.
    Third, adequate peace-keeping machinery must be established:
    There is an inseparable relationship between the scaling down of national armaments on the one hand AND THE BUILDING UP OF INTERNATIONAL PEACE-KEEPING MACHINERY AND INSTITUTIONS ON THE OTHER. NATIONS ARE UNLIKELY TO SHED THEIR MEANS OF SELF-PROTECTION IN THE ABSENCE OF ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO SAFEGUARD THEIR LEGITIMATE INTERESTS.
    THIS CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED THROUGH THE PROGRESSIVE STRENGTHENING OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
    UNDER THE UNITED NATIONS
    AND BY CREATING A UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE TO ENFORCE THE PEACE AS THE DISARMAMENT PROCESS PROCEEDS.
    ________________________________________
    There follows a summary of the principal provisions of the United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World. The full text of the program is contained in an appendix to this pamphlet.

    ————————————————
    THIS IS A SUMMARY… full text shall be posted next

    ——————————————————
    DISARMAMENT GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
    The over-all goal of the United States is a free, secure, and peaceful world of independent states adhering to common standards of justice and international conduct and subjecting the use of force to the rule of law; a world which has achieved general and complete disarmament under effective international control; and a world in which adjustment to change takes place in accordance with the principles of the United Nations.
    In order to make possible the achievement of that goal, the program sets forth the following specific objectives toward which nations should direct their efforts:
    THE DISBANDING OF ALL NATIONAL ARMED FORCES AND THE PROHIBITION OF THEIR REESTABLISHMENT IN ANY FORM WHATSOEVER OTHER THAN THOSE REQUIRED TO PRESERVE INTERNAL ORDER AND FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO A UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE;
    The elimination from national arsenals of all armaments, including all weapons of mass destruction and the means for their delivery, OTHER THAN THOSE REQUIRED FOR A UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE AND FOR MAINTAINING INTERNAL ORDER;
    The institution of effective means for the enforcement of international agreements, and for the maintenance of peace IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS;
    The establishment and effective operation of an International Disarmament Organization within the framework of the United Nations to insure compliance at all times with all disarmament obligations.
    TASK OF NEGOTIATING STATES
    The negotiating states are called upon to develop the program into a detailed plan for general and complete disarmament and to continue their efforts without interruption until the whole program has been achieved. To this end, they are to seek the widest possible area of agreement at the earliest possible date. At the same time, and without prejudice to progress on the disarmament program, they are to seek agreement on those immediate measures that would contribute to the common security of nations and that could facilitate and form port of the total program.
    GOVERNING PRINCIPLES
    The program sets forth a series of general principles to guide the negotiating states in their work. These make clear that:
    AS STATES RELINQUISH THEIR ARMS, THE UNITED NATIONS MUST BE PROGRESSIVELY STRENGTHENED IN ORDER TO IMPROVE ITS CAPACITY TO ASSURE INTERNATIONAL SECURITY AND THE PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES;
    Disarmament must proceed as rapidly as possible, until it is completed, in stages containing balanced, phased, and safeguarded measures;
    Each measure and stage should be carried out in an agreed period of time, with transition from one stage to the next to take place as soon as all measures in the preceding stage have been carried out and verified and as soon as necessary arrangements for verification of the next stage have been made;
    Inspection and verification must establish both that nations carry out scheduled limitations or reductions and that they do not retain armed forces and armaments in excess of those permitted at any stage of the disarmament process; and
    Disarmament must take place in a manner that will not affect adversely the security of any state.
    DISARMAMENT STAGES
    The program provides for progressive disarmament steps to take place in three stages and FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS STRENGTHENING OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTION.
    FIRST STAGE
    The first stage contains measures which would significantly reduce the capabilities of nations to wage aggressive war. Implementation of this stage would mean that:
    The nuclear threat would be reduced:
    All states would have adhered to a treaty effectively prohibiting the testing of nuclear weapons.
    The production of fissionable materials for use in weapons would be stopped and quantities of such materials from past production would be converted to non-weapons uses.
    States owning nuclear weapons would not relinquish control of such weapons to any nation not owning them and would not transmit to any such nation information or material necessary for their manufacture.
    States not owning nuclear weapons would not manufacture them or attempt to obtain control of such weapons belonging to other states.
    A Commission of Experts would be established to report on the feasibility and means for the verified reduction and eventual elimination of nuclear weapons stockpiles.
    Strategic delivery vehicles would be reduced:
    Strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles of specified categories and weapons designed to counter such vehicles would be reduced to agreed levels by equitable and balanced steps; THEIR PRODUCTION WOULD BE DISCONTINUED OR LIMITED; THEIR TESTING WOULD BE LIMITED OR HALTED.
    Arms and armed forces would be reduced:
    The armed forces of the United States and the Soviet Union would be limited to 2.1 million men each (with appropriate levels not exceeding that amount for other militarily significant states); levels of armaments would be correspondingly reduced and their production would be limited.
    An Experts Commission would be established to examine and report on the feasibility and means of accomplishing verifiable reduction and eventual elimination of all chemical, biological and radiological weapons.
    Peaceful use of outer space would be promoted:
    The placing in orbit or stationing in outer space of weapons of mass destruction would be prohibited.
    States would give advance notification of space vehicle and military launchings.
    U.N. peace-keeping powers would be strengthened:
    MEASURES WOULD BE TAKEN TO DEVELOP AND STRENGTHEN UNITED NATIONS ARRANGEMENTS FOR ARBITRATION, FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTERNATIONAL LAW, AND FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT IN STAGE II OF A PERMANENT U.N. PEACE FORCE.
    AN INTERNATIONAL DISARMAMENT ORGANIZATION would be established for effective verification of the disarmament program:
    Its functions would be expanded progressively as disarmament proceeds.
    It would certify to all states that agreed reductions have taken place and that retained forces and armaments do not exceed permitted levels.
    It would determine the transition from one stage to the next.
    States would be committed to measures to reduce international tension and to protect against the chance of war by accident, miscalculation, or surprise attack:
    States would be committed to refrain from the threat or use of any type of armed force contrary to the principles of the U.N. Charter and to refrain from indirect aggression and subversion against any country.
    A U.N. PEACE OBSERVATION GROUP would be available to investigate any situation which might constitute a threat to or breach of the peace.
    STATES WOULD BE COMMITTED TO GIVE ADVANCE NOTICE OF MAJOR MILITARY MOVEMENTS which might cause alarm, observation posts would be established to report on concentrations and movements of military forces.
    SECOND STAGE
    The second stage contains a series of measures which would bring within sight a world in which there would be freedom from war. Implementation of all measures in the second stage would mean:
    Further substantial reductions in the armed forces, armaments, and military establishments of states, including strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and countering weapons;
    Further development of methods for the peaceful settlement of disputes UNDER THE UNITED NATIONS;
    Establishment of a permanent international peace force WITHIN THE UNITED NATIONS;
    Depending on the findings of an Experts Commission, a halt in the production of chemical, bacteriological, and radiological weapons and a reduction of existing stocks or their conversion to peaceful uses;
    On the basis of the findings of an Experts Commission, a reduction of stocks of nuclear weapons;
    The dismantling or the conversion to peaceful uses of certain military bases and facilities wherever located; and
    The strengthening and enlargement of the International Disarmament Organization to enable it to verify the steps taken in Stage II and to determine the transition to Stage III.
    THIRD STAGE
    During the third stage of the program, the states of the world, building on the experience and confidence gained in successfully implementing the measures of the first two stages, would take final steps toward the goal of a world in which:
    States would retain only those forces, non-nuclear armaments, and establishments required for the purpose of maintaining internal order; they would also support and provide agreed manpower for a U.N. Peace Force.
    The U.N. Peace Force, equipped with agreed types and quantities of armaments, would be fully functioning.
    The peace keeping capabilities of the United nations would be sufficiently strong and the obligations of all states under such arrangements sufficiently far-reaching as to assure peace and the just settlement of differences in a disarmed world.
