    SEABURY BLAIR JR. | Elwha too clogged for fish to live

    Seabury Blair Jr.
    Columnist

    Posted: April 15, 2013

     

    Two days after I hiked the sandy, rocky desolation that used to be Lake Mills, as many as 200,000 chinook salmon were killed in what has to be one of the biggest blunders in the history of the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.

    The year-old salmon were released from the new $16 million Elwha Hatchery run by the state and Lower Elwha Klallam tribe on April 5. Most — if not all — were killed when they tried to swim downstream through the thick gray goop that is the lower Elwha River, created by the removal of two dams built illegally in 1910.

    Though they only had to negotiate 3.5 miles of the river before reaching clearer waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the silt in the river began choking them almost the minute they swam from the crystalline hatchery water into the moving mire that is the Elwha. Hatchery officials reported seeing hundreds of dead smolts lining the riverbank, their gills clogged by the same silt that forced “temporary closure” of a $70 million Elwha River water treatment plant.

    In the Port Angeles Daily News, Mike Gross, Fish and Wildlife biologist, called the release of the salmon “a mistake.” Gross said he suspected the fish suffocated when silt prevented their gills from providing oxygen.

    I imagine it would be akin to trying to breathe volcanic ash for days without a mask, or running a marathon in a massive dust storm.

    Hatchery officials said they checked on the amount of silt in the Elwha on April 4, and determined it was acceptable to release the fish. They said the silt in the river increased overnight.

    I hiked about 3 miles downstream in the desolate bed of the former Lake Mills on April 3, and I don’t need a degree in biology to tell you that no fish could live in that water. The river looked no different when I left the Elwha Campground on April 4.

    For almost 15 miles, the Elwha River carves through a century’s worth of mud, sand and river cobble deposited behind the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams. Above Rica Canyon, at the entrance to the former Lake Mills, the river is the same old blue friend I’ve known for more than 50 years.

    But beginning at the old Lake Mills inlet, the river turns into gray slurry that is poison to any fish. I don’t imagine many wild animals drink from that deadly potion and live, either.

    Fisheries biologists have been releasing coho salmon into Indian Creek, which flows from the west into the Elwha; and Little River, which flows from the east. Both tributaries are about 7 miles upstream from the mouth of the river.

    They’ve reported some of the fish, along with a few chinook they released into Lake Mills before it became the desolation it is today, have survived the gantlet of poison. Now the state is planning to release nearly a million salmon from the hatchery in June.

    About the same time, work on removing the remainder of the Glines Canyon dam is expected to resume, which will surely cause more sediment to be swept downstream. Worse, concrete dust from the dam will be stirred into the mix, making it even more deadly.

    Let us hope the state and tribe can think of a way to get healthy salmon from the hatchery to the Strait before they kill a million more fish.

    Flooding is a Dam Shame

    Posted on June 28, 2013 7:31 am by Pearl Rains Hewett

    Drought is a dam shame

    China was so dam smart that they built the biggest dam in the world.

    He who controls the water controls the world?

    In the USA the government was and is so dam stupid they decided that hydro electric power was not dam clean, dam cheap, dam renewable dam energy, not dam flood control and not dam drought and dam property loss prevention.

    The dam Chinese government is so dam smart they work in the best interest of the dam people.

    The Chinese dam prevents the dam loss of life, billions of dam dollars in property damage, provides dam cheap, dam clean, dam renewable, dam energy and helps keep their dam economy strong.

    The Chinese dam controls the dam water releases the dam water to eliminate the dam droughts

    What part of this dam Chinese policy does the dam US government not understand?

    THE US GOVERNMENT IS SO DAM DUMB THEY WORK FOR THE DAM LOBBYIST AND THE DAM SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. SAVE THE DAM ENDANGERED etal., ad nausaum, SALMON AT WHAT COST?

    The best dam interest of the dam people in the USA be dammed

    As dictated by the dam US government

    The dam people in the dam USA are flooded and cleaning up the dam water damage for six dam months of the year.

    The dam people in the USA suffer the dam drought for the other six dam months of the year

    The Chinese dam policy was to build and keep dams to provide clean renewable electric power, control the dam water and prevent the dam flooding and release the dam water to prevent drought

    THE DAM USA POLICY CREATES LOSS OF DAM LIFE, DAM MISERY AND DAM SUFFERING FOR MILLIONS OF DAM AMERICANS EVERY DAM YEAR.

    AS PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD ASK

    “HOW’S THE DAM U.S.A. SYSTEM WORKING OUT FOR YOU?


  • Politics is the Gizzard of Society

    “Civil Disobedience.” 1849.

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

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

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

  • Let Me Ask America a Question

    The Wall Street Journal,  Apr 14, 2016
     

    On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an “election” without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred.

    A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined.

    In recent days, something all too predictable has happened: Politicians furiously defended the system. “These are the rules,” we were told over and over again. If the “rules” can be used to block Coloradans from voting on whether they want better trade deals, or stronger borders, or an end to special-interest vote-buying in Congress—well, that’s just the system and we should embrace it.

    Let me ask America a question: How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?

    I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.

    No one forced anyone to cancel the vote in Colorado. Political insiders made a choice to cancel it. And it was the wrong choice.

    Responsible leaders should be shocked by the idea that party officials can simply cancel elections in America if they don’t like what the voters may decide.

    The only antidote to decades of ruinous rule by a small handful of elites is a bold infusion of popular will. On every major issue affecting this country, the people are right and the governing elite are wrong. The elites are wrong on taxes, on the size of government, on trade, on immigration, on foreign policy.

    Why should we trust the people who have made every wrong decision to substitute their will for America’s will in this presidential election?

    Here, I part ways with Sen. Ted Cruz.

    Mr. Cruz has toured the country bragging about his voterless victory in Colorado. For a man who styles himself as a warrior against the establishment (you wouldn’t know it from his list of donors and endorsers), you’d think he would be demanding a vote for Coloradans. Instead, Mr. Cruz is celebrating their disenfranchisement.

    Likewise, Mr. Cruz loudly boasts every time party insiders disenfranchise voters in a congressional district by appointing delegates who will vote the opposite of the expressed will of the people who live in that district.

    That’s because Mr. Cruz has no democratic path to the nomination. He has been mathematically eliminated by the voters.

    While I am self-funding, Mr. Cruz rakes in millions from special interests. Yet despite his financial advantage, Mr. Cruz has won only three primaries outside his home state and trails me by two million votes—a gap that will soon explode even wider. Mr. Cruz loses when people actually get to cast ballots. Voter disenfranchisement is not merely part of the Cruz strategy—it is the Cruz strategy.

    The great irony of this campaign is that the “Washington cartel” that Mr. Cruz rails against is the very group he is relying upon in his voter-nullification scheme.

    My campaign strategy is to win with the voters. Ted Cruz’s campaign strategy is to win despite them.

    What we are seeing now is not a proper use of the rules, but a flagrant abuse of the rules. Delegates are supposed to reflect the decisions of voters, but the system is being rigged by party operatives with “double-agent” delegates who reject the decision of voters.

    The American people can have no faith in such a system. It must be reformed.

    Just as I have said that I will reform our unfair trade, immigration and economic policies that have also been rigged against Americans, so too will I work closely with the chairman of the Republican National Committee and top GOP officials to reform our election policies. Together, we will restore the faith—and the franchise—of the American people.

    We must leave no doubt that voters, not donors, choose the nominee.

    How have we gotten to the point where politicians defend a rigged delegate-selection process with more passion than they have ever defended America’s borders?

    Perhaps it is because politicians care more about securing their private club than about securing their country.

    My campaign will, of course, battle for every last delegate. We will work within the system that exists now, while fighting to have it reformed in the future. But we will do it the right way. My campaign will seek maximum transparency, maximum representation and maximum voter participation.

    We will run a campaign based on empowering voters, not sidelining them.

    Let us take inspiration from patriotic Colorado citizens who have banded together in protest. Let us make Colorado a rallying cry on behalf of all the forgotten people whose desperate pleas have for decades fallen on the deaf ears and closed eyes of our rulers in Washington, D.C.

    The political insiders have had their way for a long time. Let 2016 be remembered as the year the American people finally got theirs.

  • Private Central Bank Awaken slaves!

    Unedited full text

    Awaken slaves! – How The Private Central Bank Ponzi Scheme Trapped And Destroyed America

    By Michael Rivero

    Once upon a time, in 1913, a corrupt Congress and a corrupt President transferred the money creation authority vested in the government by the Constitution to a private central bank. It was going to be called the Third Bank of the United States. Such a fundamental change to the nation’s economy should have required a Constitutional Amendment. But earlier that same year, there had been a huge fight to ratify another Amendment, the 16th Amendment authorizing the income tax, and there is good reason to suspect that the 16th Amendment actually failed ratification even though the payers of that income tax were told otherwise.

    “I think if you were to go back and and try to find and review the ratification of the 16th amendment, which was the internal revenue, the income tax, I think if you went back and examined that carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment.” – U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox, Sullivan Vs. United States, 2003.

    Getting yet another Amendment ratified against such opposition, or worse, having to cheat one through, would be extremely difficult.

    Then there was a problem with the proposed name, “Third Bank of the United States”, as it reminded people of the predations of the First and Second Bank of the United States.

    “Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!” — Andrew Jackson, shortly before ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels

    Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination.

    But I digress.

    Faced with the possibility that a new Amendment to transfer money creation from the US Government to a privately owned bank might fail and fail badly, and with the name “Third Bank of the United States” already leading to opposition to the plan, the plotters did an end run around the Constitution, passing the Federal Reserve act over Christmas vacation when the members of Congress opposed to the bill would be away. The name of the new bank was then changed to “The Federal Reserve.” But, it is a private bank, no more “Federal” than Federal Express. From that moment on all currency would enter circulation as a loan at interest.

    “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit.We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” — Woodrow Wilson 1919

    Ironically enough, this was the very system of banking the American Revolution was fought to free us from.

    “The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution.” — Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father

    Starting in 1913, public schools stopped teaching about King George’s Currency Act, which ordered the American colonies to conduct business only using bank notes borrowed at interest from the Bank of England, and since then American students are taught that the revolution was about Tea Parties and Stamp Acts, lest the more clever students wonder how we ended up back in the same banking system that led to the first revolution.

    The Founding Fathers understood how dangerous such banking systems are, and I will try to teach you here what the public schools are forbidden to let you know. The Federal Reserve system is a deliberate trap, to enslave a population to unpayable debt in order to control and exploit them, and here is how it works.

    Before any commerce can happen, currency must go into circulation. Someone has to borrow it from that private central bank. The borrower can be government, a business, another bank, or ordinary citizens using credit cards, car loans, or mortgages. For the purposes of clarity, we will use a single dollar to represent that initial borrowing from the central bank. For the purpose of this illustration, “borrower” refers collectively to the entire American nation.

    That dollar now enters circulation, passing from the original borrower to others, as payment for labor, in exchange for raw materials, as taxes, and so forth. Round and round it goes, passing from hand to hand, yet it is still a note borrowed from the Central Bank and it is still accruing interest. That Central Bank note, or (in the United States) Federal Reserve Note, is not a unit of value, it is a unit of debt.

    At some point, that dollar is repaid to the Central Bank. The Central Bank then demands the interest. In our case, a nickle. But there is a problem. That nickle doesn’t exist and it never did. It is imaginary.

    So now the borrower has to borrow another dollar, out of which he takes a nickle to pay for the interest on the first dollar.

    The rest of that second borrowed dollar now goes into circulation, but this time, only 95 cents is in circulation to pass from borrower to vendor to employee to grocery store to government, then back to the Central Bank.

    The borrower goes back to the Central Bank to repay that second dollar, but only has 95 cents, plus he owes that imaginary five cents interest as well, or ten cents.

    Once more the borrower has to borrow a new dollar from the Central Bank, only this time he has to take a dime out of that new dollar to hand bank to the banker. The borrower walks out of the bank with only 90 cents to put into circulation, while still owing a whole dollar plus five cents interest.

    The cycle keeps repeating over and over with each new loan having to return more and more back to the Central bank as accumulated interest.

    With each cycle the Central Banks gets richer while there is less and less currency available for commerce. People have to tighten their belts. Works are let go. Sales slow down. “Austerity” is imposed.

    Eventually, a point is reached where as much accumulated interest is owed as the money being borrowed. So the borrower now has to borrow twice as much from the Central Bank merely to have the same actual currency in circulation as when they started. The Central Bank system only operates as long as the borrower is willing to go deeper and deeper into debt, and debt slavery. This is what makes the Central Bank scheme a pyramid system. It works only so long as ever-larger new generations of borrowers can be found to allow new currency to enter circulation, out of which the interest on the older loans is paid. And of course, by design, the debt can never ever be paid off. Once that first paper note is loaned into circulation, total debt will always exceed total currency. The system is designed that way, to keep you in debt, to keep you a slave to the bankers.

    This is the reason that every nation on Earth with such a Central Bank is now drowning in debt. The Federal Reserve, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank, are all built on this same system. This is why nations that refuse such banking systems are made war on.

    “Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.” — Nathan Mayor Rothschild, angered at the refusal of Congress to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States in 1811. Congress stood firm and Britain, goaded to “recolonize” America by the Bank of England, headed at the time by Lionel de Rothschild, launched the war of 1812.”If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” — The London Times responding to Lincoln’s decision to issue government Greenbacks to finance the Civil War, rather that agree to private banker’s loans at 30% interest. Following Lincoln’s assassination, the Greenbacks were taken out of circulation.

    On June 4, 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110, which authorized the US Treasury to issue “United States Notes, backed by silver, so that the American people would not have to borrow federal Reserve Notes at interest. Five months later Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas, the US Notes were taken out of circulation, and John J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and President of the World Bank, was named to the Warren Commission, presumably to make certain the financial dimensions behind the assassination were never made public.

    And what did it cost the Central Banks to wield such power over nations? Paper and ink, or today a few keystrokes on a keyboard. In fact the practices of the Central Bank would be felonies under the United States Coinage Act of 1792, which declared debasement of the gold and silver-backed currency of the United States a death penalty offence.

    The Central Bank knows that those pieces of paper with ink are worthless. But while the Central Bank can just create those paper notes out of thin air (legalized counterfeiting), you may not. In order to pay that ever-growing debt you have to do what you are told to do by those who have some of those pieces of paper to hand out tell you to do. Work long hours. Invade a foreign nation that refuses to have a Private Central Bank. Torture innocent people to death to find weapons of mass destruction that do not exist to justify a war. Compromise your morals and integrity. Perform sexual favors. Whatever the purveyors of those pieces of paper want, you must do. That paper note is your slave chain.

    Even worse, as the imaginary debt piles higher and there is less and less currency in circulation, people start to become desperate to obtain those pieces of paper with colored ink on them to pay off that debt they have been tricked into believing they owe to the private central bankers. Over time, more and more moral accomodations become accepted by society in exchange for the acquisition of those pieces of paper with ink on them. Manufacturers start cutting corners, producing shoddy products that break and wear out. Food companies start using more cheap fillers. Pharmaceutical companies produce medicines of dubious efficacy and definite harm. Society turns brutal and predates on itself. Manufacturers come to want bad products that break easilyso people will buy more. The medical establishment comes to desire a sickly population because they cannot make money off of a healthy people. Food companies add addictive chemicals to food to make people buy and eat more. Wall Street comes to see fraud as a legitimate business tactic. Eventually immorality and unethical business behavior becomes the accepted social norm. Under the mounting illusion of debt society drifts into outright criminality perpetrated by everyone against everyone. From there it is a short step to seeing war and conquest of other nations’ weath as the only remaining solution to the debt problem. In short, the predations of private central banking lure society into trading what is best in human nature in exchange for those paper and ink tickets until civilization itself is at risk.

    Private Central Banking is not about banking, or even about money. It is about Control. Private Central Banking is about rule by enforced servitude to artificially created debt. No different from other hoaxes played by the rich on the poor, such as Rule by Divine Right, or Rule by Chattel Ownership of your Body (slavery). As a human civilization we have outgrown these hoaxes and realize they are illegitimate forms of governance. So too shall it be with Rule by Debt. Those previous systems only worked as long as the subjugated population believed that those systems were real; the way the world was supposed to be. When the people broke free of the slavery of belief, those forms of enslavement collapsed. For the few to feel rich, everyone else must be poor. As the availability of currency declines, it does not matter how hard people are willing to work; there must inevitably be homeless, joblessness, hunger, and wars of conquest to “balance the books.”

    Modern banking is not a science. It is a religion, simply a set of arbitrary rules and assumptions that favor the masters of that belief system, which we are brainwashed in school to think is something tangible and real.

    It is time to stop, while we still can.

    We have outgrown Rule by Divine Right and recognize slavery as inherently wrong.

    Now is the time for the next step in our societies evolution in which the money must serve the people, rather than the people serve the money.

    Central Banks are a failed experiment. Look at the devastation of Europe, or your own home town and you will see it.

    The common enemy of all humankind are Private Central Banks issuing the public currency as a loan at interest.

    Return of the Rough Rider

    William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt had once been friends.

     BUT WHEN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY MET IN CHICAGO TO CHOOSE ITS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN JUNE 1912,

     THE NOMINATION BATTLE BETWEEN THE TWO MEN WAS BRUTAL, PERSONAL

    AND ULTIMATELY FATAL TO THE PARTY’S CHANCES FOR VICTORY IN NOVEMBER.

    TAFT DECLARED ROOSEVELT TO BE “THE GREATEST MENACE TO OUR INSTITUTIONS THAT WE HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME.”

    ROOSEVELT SAW TAFT AS THE AGENT OF “THE FORCES OF REACTION AND OF POLITICAL CROOKEDNESS.

    ” THE RESULTING FLOOR FIGHT IN THE APTLY NAMED CHICAGO COLISEUM LIVED UP TO THE PREDICTION OF THE IRISH-AMERICAN HUMORIST FINLEY PETER DUNNE

     THAT THE 1912 CONVENTION WOULD BE “A COMBYNATION IV TH’ CHICAGO FIRE, SAINT BARTHOLOMEW’S MASSACREE, THE BATTLE IV TH’ BOYNE, TH’ LIFE IV JESSE JAMES, AN’ TH’ NIGHT IV TH’ BIG WIND.”

    THE CONVENTION WAS NOT ARMAGEDDON, BUT TO OBSERVERS IT SEEMED A CLOSE SECOND. SHOUTS OF “LIAR” AND CRIES OF “STEAMROLLER” PUNCTUATED THE PROCEEDINGS.

    ———————————————————————————-

    TO THIS DAY, MANY REMAIN SHOCKED AT THE AUDACIOUS MACHINATIONS OF PARTY OFFICIALS TO SECURE THE NOMINATION FOR TAFT

    —————————————————————————————-


    For years, the tensions within the GRAND OLD PARTY had been building over the issue of government regulation. During his presidency, Roosevelt had advocated a “Square Deal” between capital and labor in American society. By the time he left the White House in March 1909, Roosevelt believed that the federal government must do more to supervise large corporations, improve the lot of women and children who worked long hours for low wages in industry, and conserve natural resources. “When I say that I am for the square deal, I mean not merely that I stand for fair play under the present rules of the game, but that I stand for having those rules changed so as to work for a more substantial equality of opportunity and of reward for equally good service,” he said in August 1910. Roosevelt was especially critical of the state and federal courts for overturning reform legislation as unconstitutional, and he said that such decisions were “fundamentally hostile to every species of real popular government.”

    Roosevelt’s burgeoning crusade for more active government reflected his loss of faith in William Howard Taft, whom the former Rough Rider had chosen as his successor. As president, Taft had sided with the conservative wing of the party, which had opposed Roosevelt’s reforms at every turn. For his part, Taft believed Roosevelt had stretched the power of the executive branch too far. As a lawyer and former federal judge, Taft had nothing but disdain for his predecessor’s jaundiced view of the judiciary. “The regret which he certainly expressed that the courts had the power to set aside statutes,” wrote the president, “was an attack upon our system at the very point where I think it is the strongest.”

    Tensions deepened in 1912, when Roosevelt began ADVOCATING THE RECALL OF JUDICIAL DECISIONS THROUGH POPULAR VOTE. With the courts tamed as an enemy to reform, ROOSEVELT THEN WOULD PRESS FORWARD “TO SEE THAT THE WAGE-WORKER, THE SMALL PRODUCER, THE ORDINARY CONSUMER, SHALL GET THEIR FAIR SHARE OF THE BENEFIT OF BUSINESS PROSPERITY.” To enact his program, Roosevelt signaled that he would accept another term as president and seek the nomination of the Republican Party.

    THESE AMBITIONS REVEALED, TAFT AND HIS FELLOW CONSERVATIVES DEEMED ROOSEVELT A DANGEROUS RADICAL. ONCE IN POWER FOR A THIRD TERM, THEY SAID, ROOSEVELT WOULD BE A PERPETUAL CHIEF EXECUTIVE. ROOSEVELT HAD BECOME THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICAN HISTORY, SAID TAFT, “BECAUSE OF HIS HOLD UPON THE LESS INTELLIGENT VOTERS AND THE DISCONTENTED.” THE SOCIAL JUSTICE THAT ROOSEVELT SOUGHT INVOLVED, IN TAFT’S OPINION, “A FORCED DIVISION OF PROPERTY, AND THAT MEANS SOCIALISM.”

    Taft dominated the Republican Party machinery in many states, but a few state primaries gave the voters a chance to express themselves. The president and his former friend took to the hustings, and across the country in the spring of 1912 the campaign rhetoric escalated.

    Roosevelt described Taft as a “puzzlewit,”

    while the president labeled Roosevelt a “honeyfugler.”

     Driven to distraction under Roosevelt’s attacks, Taft said in Massachusetts, “I was a man of straw; but I have been a man of straw long enough; every man who has blood in his body and who has been misrepresented as I have is forced to fight.”

     A delighted Roosevelt supporter commented that “Taft certainly made a great mistake when he began to ‘fight back.’ He has too big a paunch to have much of a punch, while a free-for-all, slap-bang, kick-him-in-the-belly, is just nuts for the chief.”

    ROOSEVELT WON ALL THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES AGAINST TAFT EXCEPT IN MASSACHUSETTS.

    TAFT DOMINATED THE CAUCUSES THAT SENT DELEGATES TO THE STATE CONVENTIONS.

    WHEN THE VOTING WAS DONE, NEITHER MAN HAD THE 540 DELEGATES NEEDED TO WIN.

    ROOSEVELT HAD 411,

     TAFT HAD 367 AND MINOR CANDIDATES HAD 46,

     LEAVING 254 UP FOR GRABS. THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE, DOMINATED BY THE TAFT FORCES,

     AWARDED 235 DELEGATES TO THE PRESIDENT AND 19 TO ROOSEVELT, THEREBY ENSURING TAFT’S RENOMINATION.

     ROOSEVELT BELIEVED HIMSELF ENTITLED TO 72 DELEGATES FROM ARIZONA, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS AND WASHINGTON THAT HAD BEEN GIVEN TO TAFT.

    Firm in his conviction that the nomination was being stolen from him,

    Roosevelt decided to break the precedent that kept the candidates away from the national convention and lead his forces to CHICAGO in person.

     The night before the proceedings Roosevelt told cheering supporters that there was “a great moral issue” at stake and he should have “sixty to eighty lawfully elected delegates” added to his total.

     Otherwise, he said, the contested delegates should not vote.

    Roosevelt ended his speech declaring: “FEARLESS OF THE FUTURE; UNHEEDING OF OUR INDIVIDUAL FATES; WITH UNFLINCHING HEARTS AND UNDIMMED EYES; WE STAND AT ARMAGEDDON, AND WE BATTLE FOR THE LORD!”

    One pro-Taft observer said that “a tension pervaded the Coliseum breathing the general feeling that a parting of the ways was imminent.”

     William Allen White, the famous Kansas editor, looked down from the press tables “INTO THE HUMAN CALDRON THAT WAS BOILING ALL AROUND ME.”

    On the first day, the Roosevelt forces lost a test vote on the temporary chairman. Taft’s man, Elihu Root, prevailed.

     ROOSEVELT’S SUPPORTERS TRIED TO HAVE 72 OF THEIR DELEGATES SUBSTITUTED FOR TAFT PARTISANS ON THE LIST OF THOSE OFFICIALLY ALLOWED TO TAKE PART IN THE CONVENTION.

    WHEN THAT INITIATIVE FAILED, ROOSEVELT KNEW THAT HE COULD NOT WIN, AND HAD EARLIER REJECTED THE IDEA OF A COMPROMISE THIRD CANDIDATE.

    “I’LL NAME THE COMPROMISE CANDIDATE. HE’LL BE ME. I’LL NAME THE COMPROMISE PLATFORM. IT WILL BE OUR PLATFORM.

    “WITH THAT, HE BOLTED FROM THE PARTY AND INSTRUCTED HIS DELEGATES NOT TO TAKE PART IN THE VOTING;

    TAFT EASILY WON ON THE FIRST BALLOT.

     ROOSEVELT, MEANWHILE, SAID HE WAS GOING “TO NOMINATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY A PROGRESSIVE ON A PROGRESSIVE PLATFORM.”

    IN AUGUST, ROOSEVELT DID JUST THAT, RUNNING AS THE CANDIDATE OF THE PROGRESSIVE PARTY.

    BOTH HE AND TAFT LOST TO THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE, WOODROW WILSON, THAT NOVEMBER.

    YET, FOR REPUBLICANS WHO SUPPORTED TAFT, THE ELECTORAL DEFEAT WAS WORTH THE IDEOLOGICAL VICTORY.

     AS A REPUBLICAN OBSERVED DURING THE CAMPAIGN: “WE CAN’T ELECT TAFT & WE MUST DO ANYTHING TO ELECT WILSON SO AS TO DEFEAT ROOSEVELT.”

    Olympic Hot Springs Road temporary bridge in works; no time set yet to begin construction

    Click here to zoom...

    Rob Ollikainen/Peninsula Daily News
    This section of Olympic Hot Springs Road washed out in a November flood. National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis told U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer that a one-lane bridge would be installed over the washout area in six to eight weeks.

    PORT ANGELES — Funding has been requested and plans are under review for a temporary one-lane bridge over a 60-foot washout near the Elwha Campground on Olympic Hot Springs Road.

    Once plans are approved by such agencies as the Army Corps of Engineers, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Fish and Wildlife, construction would take from six to eight weeks, said Barb Maynes, Olympic National Park spokeswoman.

    She didn’t know when plans would be approved or when construction would begin.

    The washout has blocked access to the Elwha River Valley west of Port Angeles since November. Olympic Hot Springs Road is closed to vehicles at the Madison Falls trailhead, about a mile north of the washout itself.

    Temporary bridge

    The temporary bridge would be in place for as long as five years before a more permanent structure is built.

    The Elwha Campground, which was severely damaged in fall and winter floods, isn’t expected to be reopened this year, Maynes said.

    The National Park Service has requested emergency funds from the Federal Highway Administration to install a temporary bridge over the washout, National Park Service Director John Jarvis said last week.

    U.S. Rep Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, questioned Jarvis about the status of the road in a House Appropriations Interior Subcommittee hearing on the National Park Service budget Wednesday.

    “We’ve got a lot of private landowners and park users and research scientists and park service staff who are very heavily impacted by the loss of this single access point,” Kilmer said.

    “So I was hoping you could just discuss what the service is doing to expedite repairs to the road and ensure that access is restored as quickly as possible.”

    Said Jarvis: “We expect that to take about six weeks, six to eight weeks, to get that installed.

    “And that will serve — not great — but it will serve access to the landowners that are up that road and our own administrative access. We’ve got park housing, we have a maintenance facility up there and the public access as well.”

    Kilmer represents the 6th Congressional District, which covers the Olympic and Kitsap peninsulas and most of Tacoma.

    Maynes confirmed that a FEW  private landowners have land past the park entrance.

    Kilmer said. “We’ve got a LOT OF  private landowners and park users and research scientists and park service staff who are very heavily impacted by the loss of this single access point” “So I was hoping you could just discuss what the service is doing to expedite repairs to the road and ensure that access is restored as quickly as possible.”
    National Park Service Director John Jarvis said
    “And that will serve — not great — but it will serve access TO THE LANDOWNERS that are up that road and our own administrative access. We’ve got park housing, we have a maintenance facility up there and the public access as well.”
    “These visits do more than provide inspirational, educational and recreational opportunities; in 2014, they drove over $30 billion in economic impact, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs in communities around the country,” he said.

    $424,000 request
    The park service requested $424,000 for the project, Maynes said.The temporary bridge would be expected to be in use for about five years, she said.“During those five years, we will pursue plans and funding for a longer-term fix,” she said Saturday.Since the road is in an active floodplain, “a longer-term solution will take much larger effort,” she added.

    With a five-year funding bill in place, the National Park Service will work with the highway administration to complete “a major reconstruction on that site,” Jarvis said.

    But he also said that would take years.

    “We’ll be living with that temporary fix for three to five years,” Jarvis said.

    Washed out

    The road washed out when a dry Elwha River side channel was reactivated in a Nov. 17 flood.

    A second flood that occurred Dec. 8 and Dec. 9 caused additional damage to the road and nearby Elwha Campground.

    The damage to the Elwha Campground was extreme, Maynes said.

    “Some picnic tables were moved by the force of the water. Some are buried in silt. It’s unlikely that we will be able to get that open this year,” she said.

    Altair Campground was also damaged in the Nov. 17 flood. It had been closed because of damage done in a December 2014 storm.

    “Our neck of the woods has had a really tough winter,” said Kilmer, a Port Angeles native.

    Pedestrian bridge

    A pedestrian bridge over the side channel has been replaced by a small wooden bridge that can support emergency vehicles.

    Seedlings have been planted along the banks of the surviving road sections to prevent further erosion.

    “I know you’ve been getting a lot of rain up there,” Jarvis told Kilmer.

    “At least we’re getting some snowpack, both in the Cascades, the Olympics and the Sierras this year, which is a good thing.

    “The good thing on the Elwha is that it’s helped flush out all that sediment that was backed up on the rivers,” added Jarvis, referring to the removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams, a project that began in 2011.

    Kilmer described Olympic National Park as an “extraordinary asset that draws a whole bunch of people to our region.

    “I’m often reminded of just what an economic driver it is, not just in terms of hotel stays and restaurants and things like that, but my grandfather helped pave the road up Hurricane Ridge, so it’s been an extraordinary asset,” Kilmer said.

    The National Park Service system has 410 sites, including 58 national parks.

    The service has recently restored seasonal ranger hiring to peak levels, coordinated more than 400,000 volunteers, completed deferred maintenance projects and expanded partnership through a centennial program, Jarvis said.

    “All of these actions will help sustain our parks for another 100 years,” he told the committee.

    The National Park Service drew a record 307 million visitors in 2015 nationwide, Jarvis said.

    “These visits do more than provide inspirational, educational and recreational opportunities; in 2014, they drove over $30 billion in economic impact, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs in communities around the country,” he said.

    In 1803, the year of the Louisiana Purchase, President Jefferson wrote a letter to William Henry Harrison, a future U.S. President who was then governor of the Indiana Territory, explaining what should be done with the Native Americans inhabiting the wild frontier.
    Jefferson went on to explain:

    “When they (the Indians) withdraw themselves to the culture of a small piece of land,
    they will perceive how useless to them are their extensive forests,
    and will be willing to pare them off from time to time in exchange for necessaries for their farms and families.

    ——————————
    And if any Indians make trouble, Jefferson wrote, they would be driven out of their lands.
    “Should any tribe be foolhardy enough to take up the hatchet at any time,” he told Harrison,“the seizing the whole country of that tribe, and driving them across the Mississippi, as the only condition of peace,

    WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE TO OTHERS, AND A FURTHERANCE OF OUR FINAL CONSOLIDATION.”

    ———————————————
    This was the final solution for the Indians – a policy that would result in their being driven from their ancestral lands and shunted onto barren reservations.

    ————————————————————–
    IN 1807 JEFFERSON MADE THIS CLEAR FOUR YEARS LATER WHEN HE WROTE THAT IF THE INDIANS DID NOT COOPERATE, THE POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES WOULD BE “TO PURSUE INDIANS TO EXTERMINATION, or to drive them to new seats beyond our reach.”

    December 12, 1817
    “The earth was given to mankind to support the greatest number of which it is capable, and no tribe or people have a right to withhold from the wants of others more than is necessary for their own support and comfort.”
    “In terminating Indian hostilities, as must soon be done…the emigration, which has heretofore been great, will probably increase, and the demand for land and the augmentation in its value be in like proportion.”

    ——————————-
    Sixth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 3, 1822
    “It is essential to the growth and prosperity of the (Florida) Territory, as well as to the interests of the Union, that those Indians should be removed, by special compact with them, to some other position or concentration within narrower limits.”

    ———————————–
    Eighth State of the Union Address

    Dec. 6, 1830
    “It gives me pleasure to announce to Congress that the benevolent policy of the Government, steadily pursued for nearly 30 years, in relation to the removal of the Indians beyond the white settlements is approaching to a happy consummation.”

    ————————————-
    Eighth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 5, 1836
    “The national policy, founded alike in interest and in humanity, so long and so steadily pursued by this Government for the removal of the Indian tribes originally settled on this side of the Mississippi to the west of that river, may be said to have been consummated by the conclusion of the late treaty with the Cherokees.”

    Martin Van Buren
    First State of the Union Address
    Dec. 5, 1837
    “The system of removing the Indians west of the Mississippi, commenced by Mr. Jefferson in 1804, has been steadily persevered in by every succeeding President, and may be considered the settled policy of the country.”

    Second State of the Union Address
    Dec. 3, 1838
    “It affords me sincere pleasure to be able to apprise you of the entire removal of the Cherokee Nation of Indians to their new homes west of the Mississippi.”
    Fourth State of the Union Address (Dec. 5, 1840
    “The removal of the Indians from within our settled borders is nearly completed.”

    James K. Polk
    First State of the Union Address
    Dec. 2, 1845
    “Our relations with the Indian tribes are of a favorable character. The policy of removing them to a country designed for their permanent residence west of the Mississippi, and without the limits of the organized States and Territories, is better appreciated by them than it was a few years ago.”

    —————————————
    Fourth State of the Union Address
    Dec. 5, 1848
    “The title to all the Indian lands within the several States of our Union, with the exception of a few small reservations, is now extinguished, and a vast region opened for settlement and cultivation.”
    “Within the last four years eight important treaties have been negotiated with different Indian tribes, and at a cost of $1,842,000; Indian lands to the amount of more than 18,500,000 acres have been ceded to the United States, and provision has been made for settling in the country west of the Mississippi the tribes which occupied this large extent of the public domain.”
    (The payment amounted to 10¢ an acre.)

    “The immediate and only cause of the existing hostility of the Indians of OREGON is represented to have been the long delay of the United States in making to them some trifling compensation, in such articles as they wanted, for the country now occupied by our emigrants, which the Indians claimed and over which they formerly roamed.”
