    1786 “The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty” James Madison.

    2017 THE ADVANCEMENT AND DIFFUSION OF KNOWLEDGE WORLD WIDE WEB SOCIAL MEDIA STATISTICS

    For context, as of October 2017, total worldwide population is 7.6 billion

    The internet has 3.5 billion users

    There are 3.03 billion active social media users

    91% of retail brands use 2 or more social media channels

    81% of all small and medium businesses use some kind of social platform

    Internet users have an average of 7.6 social media accounts

    Social media users grew by 121 million between Q2 2017 and Q3 2017.

    That works out at a new social media user every 15 seconds.

    Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp handle 60 billion messages a day

    1954-2018  THE ADVANCEMENT AND DIFFUSION OF KNOWLEDGE WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME

    It was just a matter of time before the general public would be able to grasp and upset the cradle of power. In 1954 it was well recognized by those in positions of authority that it was only a matter of time, only a few decades, before the general public would be able to grasp and upset the cradle of power, for the very elements of the new silent weapon technology were as accessible for a public utopia as they were for providing a private utopia.

    THE INTERNET GOT ITS START IN THE UNITED STATES 1954-2018 ALMOST 70 YEARS AGO AS A GOVERNMENT WEAPON IN THE COLD WAR.

    The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was an early packet switching network and the first network to implement the protocol suite TCP/IP.

    BOTH TECHNOLOGIES BECAME THE TECHNICAL FOUNDATION OF THE INTERNET.

    Unlike technologies such as the light bulb or the telephone, the Internet has no single “inventor.” Instead, it has evolved over time. THE INTERNET GOT ITS START IN THE UNITED STATES MORE THAN 50 YEARS AGO AS A GOVERNMENT WEAPON IN THE COLD WAR. For years, scientists and researchers used it to communicate and share data with one another.

    THE SPUTNIK SCARE

    On OCTOBER 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched the world’s first manmade satellite into orbit. The satellite, known as Sputnik, did not do much: It tumbled aimlessly around in outer space, sending blips and bleeps from its radio transmitters as it circled the Earth. Still, to many Americans, the beach-ball-sized Sputnik was proof of something alarming: While the brightest scientists and engineers in the United States had been designing bigger cars and better television sets, it seemed, the Soviets had been focusing on less frivolous things—and they were going to win the Cold War because of it.

    After Sputnik’s launch, many Americans began to think more seriously about science and technology. Schools added courses on subjects like chemistry, physics and calculus. Corporations took government grants and invested them in scientific research and development.

     AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ITSELF FORMED NEW AGENCIES, SUCH AS THE NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION (NASA) AND THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE’S ADVANCED RESEARCH PROJECTS AGENCY (ARPA), TO DEVELOP SPACE-AGE TECHNOLOGIES SUCH AS ROCKETS, WEAPONS AND COMPUTERS.

    THE BIRTH OF THE ARPANET

    Scientists and military experts were especially concerned about what might happen in the event of a Soviet attack on the nation’s telephone system. Just one missile, they feared, could destroy the whole network of lines and wires that made efficient long-distance communication possible. In 1962, A SCIENTIST FROM M.I.T. AND ARPA NAMED J.C.R. LICKLIDER proposed a solution to this problem: a “GALACTIC NETWORK” of computers that could talk to one another. Such a network would enable government leaders to communicate even if the Soviets destroyed the telephone system.

    In 1965, another M.I.T. SCIENTIST developed a way of sending information from one computer to another that he called “packet switching.” Packet switching breaks data down into blocks, or packets, before sending it to its destination. That way, each packet can take its own route from place to place. Without packet switching, the government’s computer network—now known as the ARPAnet—would have been just as vulnerable to enemy attacks as the phone system.

    “LOGIN”

    In 1969, ARPAnet delivered its first message: a “node-to-node” communication from one computer to another. (THE FIRST COMPUTER WAS LOCATED IN A RESEARCH LAB AT UCLA AND THE SECOND WAS AT STANFORD; each one was the size of a small house.) The message—“LOGIN”—was short and simple, but it crashed the fledgling ARPA network anyway: The Stanford computer only received the note’s first two letters.

    THE NETWORK GROWS 1969-1970-1971 INTO A SINGLE WORLDWIDE “INTERNET.”

    By the end of 1969, just four computers were connected to the ARPAnet, but the network grew steadily during the 1970s. In 1971,

     IT ADDED THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII’S ALOHANET, AND TWO YEARS LATER IT ADDED NETWORKS AT LONDON’S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE AND THE ROYAL RADAR ESTABLISHMENT IN NORWAY.

     AS PACKET-SWITCHED COMPUTER NETWORKS MULTIPLIED, HOWEVER, IT BECAME MORE DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO INTEGRATE INTO A SINGLE WORLDWIDE “INTERNET.”

    By the end of the 1970s, a computer scientist named Vinton Cerf had begun to solve this problem by developing a way for all of the computers on all of the world’s mini-networks to communicate with one another. He called his invention “TRANSMISSION CONTROL PROTOCOL,” or TCP. (Later, he added an additional protocol, known as “INTERNET PROTOCOL.” The acronym we use to refer to these today is TCP/IP.) One writer describes Cerf’s protocol as “the ‘handshake’ that introduces distant and different computers to each other in a virtual space.”

    THE WORLD WIDE WEB 1991-1992 A COMPUTER PROGRAMMER IN SWITZERLAND

    Cerf’s protocol transformed the Internet into a worldwide network. Throughout the 1980s, researchers and scientists used it to send files and data from one computer to another. However, in 1991 the Internet changed again. THAT YEAR, A COMPUTER PROGRAMMER IN SWITZERLAND named Tim Berners-Lee introduced THE WORLD WIDE WEB: an Internet that was not simply a way to send files from one place to another but was itself A “WEB” OF INFORMATION THAT ANYONE ON THE INTERNET COULD RETRIEVE. Berners-Lee created the Internet that we know today.

    Since then, the Internet has changed in many ways. In 1992, a group of students and researchers at the University of Illinois developed a sophisticated browser that they called Mosaic. (It later became Netscape.) Mosaic offered a user-friendly way to search the Web: It allowed users to see words and pictures on the same page for the first time and to navigate using scrollbars and clickable links. THAT SAME YEAR, CONGRESS DECIDED THAT THE WEB COULD BE USED FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES. As a result, companies of all kinds hurried to set up websites of their own, and e-commerce entrepreneurs began to use the Internet to sell goods directly to customers.

    More recently, social networking sites like Facebook have become a popular way for people of all ages to stay connected.

    Behind My Back | What’s Driving the Establishment Bonkers?

    www.behindmyback.org/2016/06/08/whats-driving-the-establishment-bonkers/

    Jun 8, 2016 – Who’s Driving The Establishments Mainstream Media 1890’s – 2013 – 2016? In the old days, the mainstream media had a virtual monopoly on the news.

    But these days, anyone with an Internet connection can put up a news site things go viral in cyberspace, round and round and round they go on social media websites, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Tweet…..

    The big news networks have developed an almost incestuous relationship with the federal government in recent years.  But of course the same could be said of the relationship that the media has with the big corporations that own stock in their parent companies and that advertise on their networks.

    This is one of the reasons why we very rarely ever see any hard hitting stories on the big networks anymore. 

    THE FLOW OF INFORMATION THROUGH THE CORPORATE-DOMINATED MEDIA IS VERY TIGHTLY CONTROLLED, AND THERE ARE A LOT OF GATEKEEPERS THAT MAKE SURE THAT THE “WRONG STORIES” DON’T GET PUT OUT TO THE PUBLIC. 

    As a result, many of the “big stories” that have come out in recent years were originally broken by the alternative media.

    The Establishments Mainstream Media And The Politicians That They Worship Hate The Fact That They Cannot Control Internet News Sites

    AND THIS IS DRIVING THE ESTABLISHMENT ABSOLUTELY BONKERS.

    The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us.  The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese.  How could they be?  Their reality is totally different.  You can’t understand anything in Senegal using American terms.

    Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty.  (I witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age ceremony, like a Bat Mitzvah or Confirmation.)

    What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right

    What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right – By Karin McQuillan (This is mandatory reading for any American with a conscience and a pulse.)

    By K McQ

    Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a mommunity center in a rural town.  Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health.  That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, “a fecalized environment.”

    In plain English: s— is everywhere.  People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water.  He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water.  Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

    Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country.  Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

    Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral.  The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see.

    I have seen.  I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant things are not true.

    Senegal was not a hellhole.  Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures’ terms.  But they are not our terms.  The excrement is the least of it.  Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.

    As a twenty-one-year-old starting out in the Peace Corps, I loved Senegal.  In fact, I was euphoric.  I quickly made friends and had an adopted family.  I relished the feeling of the brotherhood of man.  People were open, willing to share their lives and, after they knew you, their innermost thoughts.

    The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us.  The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese.  How could they be?  Their reality is totally different.  You can’t understand anything in Senegal using American terms.

    Take something as basic as family.  Family was a few hundred people, extending out to second and third cousins.  All the men in one generation were called “father.”  Senegalese are Muslim, with up to four wives.  Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty.  (I witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age ceremony, like a Bat Mitzvah or Confirmation.)  Sex, I was told, did not include kissing.  Love and friendship in marriage were Western ideas.  Fidelity was not a thing.  Married women would have sex for a few cents to have cash for the market.

    What I did witness every day was that women were worked half to death.  Wives raised the food and fed their own children, did the heavy labor of walking miles to gather wood for the fire, drew water from the well or public faucet, pounded grain with heavy hand-held pestles, lived in their own huts, and had conjugal visits from their husbands on a rotating basis with their co-wives.  Their husbands lazed in the shade of the trees.

    Yet family was crucial to people there in a way Americans cannot comprehend.

    The Ten Commandments were not disobeyed – they were unknown.  The value system was the exact opposite.  You were supposed to steal everything you can to give to your own relatives.  There are some Westernized Africans who try to rebel against the system.  They fail.

    We hear a lot about the kleptocratic elites of Africa.  The kleptocracy extends through the whole society.  My town had a medical clinic donated by international agencies.  The medicine was stolen by the medical workers and sold to the local store.  If you were sick and didn’t have money, drop dead.  That was normal.

    So here in the States, when we discovered that my 98-year-old father’s Muslim health aide from Nigeria had stolen his clothes and wasn’t bathing him, I wasn’t surprised.  It was familiar.

    In Senegal, corruption ruled, from top to bottom.  Go to the post office, and the clerk would name an outrageous price for a stamp.  After paying the bribe, you still didn’t know it if it would be mailed or thrown out.  That was normal.

    One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic.  One day, as the wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from the medical aides – who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree instead of working – collapsed to the ground.  They turned their heads so as not to see her and kept talking.  She lay there in the dirt.  Callousness to the sick was normal.

    Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  It’s not.  It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture.

    We think the Protestant work ethic is universal.  It’s not.  My town was full of young men doing nothing.  They were waiting for a government job.  There was no private enterprise.  Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy.  It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.

    All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians.  If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he’d go to another country.  The reason?  Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes.  End of your business.  You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives.  The result: Everyone has nothing.

    The more I worked there and visited government officials doing absolutely nothing, the more I realized that no one in Senegal had the idea that a job means work.  A job is something given to you by a relative.  It provides the place where you steal everything to give back to your family.

    I couldn’t wait to get home.  So why would I want to bring Africa here?  Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa.

    For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever.  I take seriously my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on the American heritage to the next generation.

    African problems are made worse by our aid efforts.  Senegal is full of smart, capable people.  They will eventually solve their own country’s problems.  They will do it on their terms, not ours.  The solution is not to bring Africans here.

    We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration.  They tell us we must end America as a white, Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation – to prove we are not racist.  I don’t need to prove a thing.  Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America.  They want to destroy America as we know it.

    As President Trump asked, why would we do that?

    We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in.  I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese.  I am not willing to donate my country.

  • Obamas Classified Australian Immigration Deal

    Some American citizens were aware that President Obama and his administrations had brokered an immigration deal with Australia.

    WHAT WE DIDN’T KNOW IS THAT THE DEAL WAS CLASSIFIED

    Under President Trump’s Immigration Deals. (sworn in Jan 20, 2017)

    President Trump signed three executive orders the week of January 23, 2017

    On January 25 at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Trump signed executive orders on border security and interior enforcement. On January 27, he signed an executive order at the Pentagon on refugees and visa holders from designated nations.

    Why would President Trump be upset, eight days after he was sworn into office?

    Jun 10, 2017 – Soon after taking office, (JAN 28, 2017)  President Trump promised to study the “dumb deal“: “Do you believe it? The Obama administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!” he tweeted……

    APRIL 2016 Who Are Australia’s 1,241 Unwanted Asylum Seekers?

    Most (1,147) are men.

    According to recent Australian detention statistics, there are 1,241 people in detention on Nauru and Manus Island (PNG): 380 on Nauru and 861 on Manus Island. Most (1,147) are men.25 Of the 380 in Nauru, 286 are men, 49 are women, and 45 are children. All 861 detained on Manus Island are men.

    APRIL 2016  Australia’s 1,241 Unwanted Asylum Seekers

    Friction between asylum seekers and locals intensified (Riots, Mental Illness, Sexual Assault Allegations) after detention at the Manus camp was deemed unconstitutional by the Papua New Guinea Supreme Court in April 2016.

    Detainees (now called “residents”) were since allowed outside the camp.

    During UNHCR’s April 2016 visit to Manus Island

    United Nations experts concluded that the level of mental illness on both islands was alarming

    Experts concluded that “[t]he prevalence and severity of mental disorders presented by the asylum-seeker and refugee population on Manus Island is extreme.”

    Furthermore, a number of very severe psychiatric disorders were identified, including gross psychopathology consistent with psychosis as well as psychotic dissociation.

    ——————————————————-

    Riots, Mental Illness, Sexual Assault Allegations

    Following an inspection of the Manus and Nauru detention camps, United Nations experts concluded that the level of mental illness on both islands was alarming.36 During UNHCR’s April 2016 visit to Manus Island, medical experts found that 88 percent of asylum seekers and refugees surveyed “were suffering from a depressive or anxiety disorder and/or post-traumatic stress disorder. … Furthermore, a number of very severe psychiatric disorders were identified, including gross psychopathology consistent with psychosis as well as psychotic dissociation.” Experts concluded that “[t]he prevalence and severity of mental disorders presented by the asylum-seeker and refugee population on Manus Island is extreme.” Eighty-three percent of asylum seekers and refugees surveyed on Nauru “suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and/or depression.”

    Riots, fights with security guards and local residents, incidents of self-harm, and suicide attempts (including swallowing poison and self-immolation) were on the rise.

    The latest violent incident took place on Manus Island detention center in April. Dutton, the immigration minister, said the incident was the result of allegations of sexual assault against a five-year-old local boy who was led into the center.37 Manus Island locals got angry and violence broke out between them, camp security guards, and the detainees. Shots were fired inside the camp, but no one was hurt. Detainees refuted these allegations, claiming the fight was the result of a football field dispute. They said that the boy was led inside the camp a few days before the incident because he was asking for food.38

    Friction between asylum seekers and locals intensified after detention at the Manus camp was deemed unconstitutional by the Papua New Guinea Supreme Court in April 2016. Detainees (now called “residents”) were since allowed outside the camp.

    David Yapu, Manus Province commander, spoke to Fairfax Media:

    We have been warning the refugees to respect the laws of the locals, of Papua New Guinea. … You are free to walk around, but please make sure that you respect the locals. If you come in conflict with the law, police will not hesitate to deal with you. I want the message to be delivered to them. The bulk of them are okay but there are a few [troublemakers]. Ignorance of the law is not an excuse.39

    In January, an asylum seeker was charged with raping a young local woman on Manus Island. This incident raises, according to the victim’s aunt, a serious problem as to how detainees are relating to local people on the island: “They don’t know our cultures and they don’t respect the women here, they do anything they want. … They are roaming here, looking for women and getting these small girls [young women] to have sex is not something the people of Manus would like to see.”40

    Another asylum seeker was arrested and charged with the rape of a 10-year-old girl. As reported in January 2017: “Police on the island said at least seven men had been arrested in recent weeks for offences such as public drunkenness and possession of drugs.”41

    Incidents like these have led to increased tension between the asylum seekers and the local people. Asylum seekers have been attacked outside the center and two Iranian men were beaten by police. But police and local representatives accuse the asylum seekers of “committing crimes and aggressively pursuing local women.”42

    January 28, 2017

    U.S. President Donald Trump  seated at his desk speaks by phone with Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S.

    Turnbull, early in the call, pivots from introductory pleasantries to highlighting similarities in U.S. and Australian policies with regard to “national security and border protection.” Turnbull name-drops Jared Kushner, who he says he’d recently spoken to, and notes, “It is very interesting to know how you prioritize the minorities in your Executive Order.”

    AUSTRALIA’S  SMART  LINE ON IMMIGRATION

    January 28, 2017, Turnbull,  comments that 90 percent of the 12,000 Syrian refugees Australia has agreed to take in are Christian.

    it is a tragic fact of life that when the situation in the Middle East settles down the people that are going to be most unlikely to have a continuing home are those Christian minorities… It is not a sectarian thing. It is recognition of the practical political realities.”

    Data  obtained through Australia’s freedom of information law shows that 78 percent of the approximately 18,563 refugees from Syria and Iraq granted entry from July 1, 2015, to Jan. 6, 2017  of this year identified themselves as Christian.

    JULY 2014 AUSTRALIA’S  HARD LINE ON IMMIGRATION

    Under Australia’s strict border policy, they are prevented from receiving asylum even if found to be refugees.

    The hardline policy adopted by Australia has resulted in there being no asylum seekers delivered to Australia by a boat smuggling operation since July 2014.

    Under the new legislation, even the thousands of asylum seekers who have returned home to the Middle East, Africa and Asia would be banned from ever traveling to Australia, even on a legitimate tourist or business visa, or as an Australian’s spouse.

    The minister said the attack near Britain’s Parliament on Wednesday, in which an assailant with suspected links to Islamist terrorism killed three people and wounded dozens more using a car and a knife before being shot dead,

    justified the Australian government’s decision to be very selective about who it let into the country.

  • The IRS Estate Death Tax 2008-2018

    How devastating was the IRS Estate Death Tax to our family?

    The death tax in 2008, the year my Dad died, the IRS demanded 1/2 of everything over two (2) million dollars. My father’s trust was Land rich and Cash poor. I did in fact, have to sell the FARM. Over 100 acres of a farm that had been in our family for over 60 years (they will take whatever you have).

    2009-2013 How complicated were the IRS estate death tax legal and federal financial lien laws?

    How devastating  was the IRS Estate Death Tax in 2008?

    My code name “Pearl Revere”

    Posted on February 1, 2013 9:37 am by Pearl Rains Hewett

    ————————————————

    Little did I know, about the IRS Estate Death tax on June 1, 2009, when I became the trustee/executor of my father’s Trust/Estate.

    What I did know, was it took Attorney’s and  an Accounting Firm from March 19, 2008 to June 1, 2009, to compile an 8 inch pile of legal documents for the IRS.

    The beneficiaries’ of the Estate were instructed to, and did  sign an agreement with and for the IRS.

    What did we sign?

    How complicated were the IRS estate death tax legal and federal financial lien laws? And, how many IRS  liens were filed against the estate, when were they filed  and what restrictions did the liens place on the estate property?

    2009-2012 How many  IRS estate death tax forms had to be filled out and signed?

    How long did it take the IRS to decide what estate options were allowed for payment of the estate death tax? A document from the IRS dated Feb 15, 2012

    March 13, 2012 IRS Letter three Years after my father’s death  Attached, IRS form 890, dated Feb 15, 2012 IRS Estate of George C. Rains page (2), SEC. 6166 Installment Option SELECTED?  the Rains Sr. Estate is a closely held business.

    ——————————————————-

    WHAT IS AN IRS CLOSELY HELD BUSINESS? 

    The estate tax generally is due within nine months of a decedent’s death.

    However, in recognition of the illiquid nature of most closely held businesses,

    ———————————————————————————

    What is the legal definition of illiguid?

    Illiquid refers to the state of a security or other asset that cannot easily be sold or exchanged for cash without a substantial loss in value.

    ———————————————————————–

    The Code  allows the executor of a deceased business owner’s estate to elect to pay the estate tax attributable to an interest in a closely held business in up to ten installments.

    An estate is eligible for payment of the estate tax in installments if the value of the decedent’s interest in a closely held business exceeds 35 percent of the decedent’s adjusted gross estate (i.e., the gross estate less certain deductions).

    ——————————————————–

    March 19, 2008  I know now, Jan 12, 2018, the closely held business Rains Sr. Estate illiguid was over 74%, more than double the 35 percent eligible amount.

    ——————————————————————————————

    If the election is made, the estate may defer payment of principal and pay only interest for the first five years[2], followed by up to 10 annual installments of principal and interest. This provision effectively extends the time for paying estate tax by 14 years from the original due date of the estate tax.

    ———————————————————————————-

    Five years paying interest only, followed by up to 10 annual installments of principal and interest financially  and effectively adds up to a whole bunch of money.

    https://www.taxlawforchb.com/

    2 days ago – The Tax Department of Farrell Fritz has created this blog to provide meaningful information and to elicit discussion regarding those Federal and New York tax issues which are of particular concern to closely-held business organizations and their owners.

    Implications (or Fact)

    As stated immediately above, the owners of many closely held businesses will not be subject to the federal estate tax – at least not through 2025[5] – thanks to the greatly increased exemption amount and to continued portability.

    Thus, a deceased owner’s taxable (not gross) estate in 2018 – even if we only account for conservative valuations of his business interests and for reasonable estate administration expenses – may be as great as $22.4 million (assuming portability) without incurring any federal estate tax.

    The bottom line…

    With President Trump, the smaller estates of a  hard working American citizens, eligible as a closely held business,  those smaller family estates beneficiaries  will never become slaves to an IRS Estate Death Tax demanding 25% of the illiquid  assets of a tree farm, acquired by their father, with 60 years of hard labor.

    Unfortunately, the IRS death tax is still there, but the exemptions have been  raised.

    WHY BOTHER WITH THAT CLALLAM COUNTY SMP UPDATE.

    BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN AN INTEREST PARTY SINCE JAN 26, 2011

    —– Original Message —–

    From: zSMP

    Sent: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017 8:57 AM

    SUBJECT: PROPOSED CLALLAM COUNTY SHORELINE MASTER PROGRAM (SMP)

    INTERESTED PARTIES,

    You are receiving this notice because you are on the County’s Shoreline Master Program (SMP) Update email notification list. The County Planning Commission recommended to the Clallam County Board of Commissioners a Draft SMP (September 2017) to update and replace: (1) the existing 1976 SMP (last amended 1992); and (2) procedures for administration (e.g., permit process) of the SMP in Chapter 35.01, Shoreline Management, of the Clallam County Code (CCC).

    PUBLIC HEARING:  A public hearing on the recommended SMP before the Clallam County Board of Commissioners is scheduled for December 12, 2017 at 10:30 a.m., or as soon thereafter as possible in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 East 4th Street, Room 160, Port Angeles, Washington. All persons wishing to comment are welcome to either submit their written comments before the hearing is commenced or present written and/or oral comments in person during the public hearing. Written comments should be sent to the Clallam County Board of Commissioners, 223 East 4th Street, Suite 4, Port Angeles, WA 98362-3015, or emailed to:  SMP@co.clallam.wa.us

    REGIONAL PUBLIC FORUMS:  Prior to the public hearing, the County Dept. of Community Development will host 4 public forums to provide information on the SMP:

    Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

    Sekiu Community Center, 42 Rice St., Sekiu WA

    Monday, November 6, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

    Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

    John Wayne Marina, 2577 W. Sequim Bay Rd., Sequim WA

    SUMMARY:  The SMP addresses compliance with the state Shoreline Management Act (SMA), RCW 90.58, and state SMP Update Guidelines (WAC 173-26).  It includes goals and policies, regulations for new development and uses, and administrative procedures (e.g., permit process).

    AREAS SUBJECT TO SMP:  The SMP applies to all marine waters, reaches of rivers and streams where the mean annual flow is more than 20 cubic feet per second, and lakes and reservoirs 20 acres or greater in size that are under the jurisdiction of Clallam County and to lands adjacent to these water bodies (together with lands underlying them) extending landward 200 feet in all directions from the ordinary high water mark; floodways and contiguous floodplain areas landward 200 feet from such floodways; and associated wetlands and river deltas.  To consolidate regulations, the proposed SMP also includes the full extent of the mapped 100-year floodplain and land necessary for buffers to protect critical areas as defined in RCW 36.70A that are overlapping or otherwise coincident with the shoreline jurisdiction as allowed pursuant to RCW 90.58.030(2)(d)(i,ii).

    The Trump Administration has provided the following updated coordination report.

    Sept 3, 2017 A nine (9) page  3575 word FEMA news release document

    The Road to Recovery: The Federal Family’s Coordinated Efforts to Support Survivors in the Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

    Release Date:

    September 3, 2017

    For Immediate Release
    FEMA News Desk
    Phone: 202-646-3272

    WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its federal partners’ personnel and resources are supporting state, local, and tribal efforts throughout Texas and Louisiana. More than 30,000 federal staff are deployed in support of the response to Hurricane Harvey.

    Hurricane Harvey made landfall at Rockport, Texas on Friday, August 25, at 10 p.m. CDT, the first major hurricane to make landfall on the Gulf Coast since 2005. Harvey’s extremely slow movement for the next five days resulted in catastrophic flooding in southeast Texas and Louisiana.

    Rescue efforts continue in some areas while recovery efforts are beginning for many communities.

    As of September 1, 2017:

    • 42,399 people sought refuge in 248 Red Cross and partner shelters in Texas. Six shelters are also open in Louisiana serving another 1,487 people.
    • Federal search and rescue teams continue to search for potential survivors. To date, federal responders have rescued more than 16,800 individuals and 1,500 pets. Federal search and rescue involves a partnership among responders from the Department of Homeland Security, including FEMA, the United States Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, and the Department of Defense.

    The following commodities have been provided by FEMA to the states at their request:

    • Texas
      • More than 3,190,000 meals;
      • More than 3,190,000 liters of water;
      • More than 9,900 blankets;
      • More than 8,840 cots; and
      • More than 10,300 hygiene kits
    • Louisiana:
      • More than 416,000 meals; and
      • More than 414,000 liters of water

    Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinator (FDRC) Mike Byrne has been named to help with recovery. He will oversee an assessment of impacted communities and help develop a recovery support strategy. This strategy will help hard-hit communities gain easier access to federal funding, bridge gaps in assistance, and establish goals for recovery that are measurable, achievable, and affordable.

    Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams (DSATs) are in the field registering survivors and addressing immediate and emerging needs of disaster survivors including: on-site registration, applicant status checks, on-the-spot needs assessments, requests for accommodations for those with disabilities or access or functional needs, and access to partners offering survivor services.

    The first Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) opened yesterday, September 1, 2017, at Edna High School Football Stadium in Edna, Texas. DRCs will continue to open in locations identified by the state of Texas to provide information to survivors. Visit the DRC Locator to find additional DRC locations as they open.

    FEMA has received more than 457,000 registrations for assistance, including a record number of single-day registrations on two consecutive days (August 29 and 30) this week. More than 121,000 survivors have already been approved for more than $83.4 million in assistance from FEMA.

    The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has received 2,118 disaster loan applications, primarily for homes. The SBA has fielded 5,221 calls and completed 451 property damage inspections.

    Short-term housing assistance and other immediate funding is available to survivors who register. Survivors whose homes are uninhabitable or inaccessible may have access to short-term lodging at eligible hotels. FEMA can also provide up to two months of expedited rental assistance to those eligible. When survivors register, they will also receive information on other resources in their area, including available services from other federal agencies.

    For survivors who have suffered damage and have federal flood insurance, FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program is issuing advance payments of up to $5,000 for building and contents damages prior to an adjuster’s inspection to help get funds into the hands of survivors as soon as possible. If a policyholder has photos and receipts of out-of-pocket expenses, they may receive an advance payment of up to $10,000. As of 2 p.m. EDT on Friday, September 1, more than 63,000 claims have been submitted in Texas.

    To help people affected by this disaster, FEMA has created a webpage with resources and additional information for People with Disabilities and Others with Access & Functional Needs. Information is available in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, Urdu, and Vietnamese.

    More than 3,800 FEMA employees are working in support of Hurricane Harvey response.

    Other Ongoing Federal Efforts:

    The American Red Cross (Red Cross) remains focused on sheltering operations. As of September 1, there were 258 shelters open with a population of at least 42,399 in Texas. In Louisiana there were 3 ARC shelters open with a population of 20, and 3 independent shelters with a population of 1,487. To support shelters we have shelter supplies for more than 75,000 on hand with an additional 10,000 en route. 9 kitchens are deployed in Texas, 4 operational now with all being operational by tomorrow. Capacity of each kitchen is 10,000 meals per day. An additional 6 kitchen support trailers are en route. To date, the ARC has served 168,390 meals and 224,200 snacks.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is issuing safety alerts and has issued a statement from CPSC Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle regarding Hurricane Harvey.

    The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has deployed nearly 450 AmeriCorps members, including FEMA Corps, from across the nation to Texas as well as local Senior Corps members with additional members of the AmeriCorps Disaster Response Team on standby. AmeriCorps members are working with the American Red Cross, supporting shelter and mass care operations, as well as providing assistance to FEMA’s logistics and disaster survivor assistance teams. AmeriCorps Disaster Response Teams, in coordination with FEMA and the Texas Division of Emergency Management, are organizing the volunteer and donations management process and operations. In addition, CNCS is leveraging its vast network of nonprofits and community organizations to communicate the correct channels for donations and volunteering as well as calling upon the more than one million AmeriCorps alumni – many of whom have previously responded to disasters — to fill the urgent need for trained shelter managers.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is providing assistance through their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and waiving some regulations to make food more accessible, especially to school children and seniors. In addition, the USDA approved the state of Texas to designate schools not directly impacted by the Hurricane to serve as disaster organizations and shelters so that USDA foods can be used for congregate feeding, providing critical food assistance to those in need. USDA foods include a variety of canned, fresh, frozen, and dry products which include fruits, vegetables, meats, and whole grains.

    The Department of Defense (DoD) has stood up three additional Incident Support Bases (ISB) at Fort Hood, Joint Base San Antonio, and Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort-Worth to support forward distribution of supplies and equipment to the affected area.

    • Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) is providing more than 645,000 gallons of fuel in several locations.
    • USNORTHCOM deployed 73 helicopters, three C-130s, and eight para-rescue teams for search and rescue and evacuation. Approximately 6,300 active-duty military personnel are deployed to the affected area. DoD active-duty military personnel have rescued/assisted more than 1,200 people to date.
    • The National Guard Bureau (NGB) mission will transition to provide critical life support, power generation, water pumping, road and debris clearing, security, and setting up distribution points for food and water.

    • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers currently has more than 150 personnel engaged and operating in coordination with county, state, and FEMA partners. USACE has received and is supporting FEMA Mission Assignments for temporary power, regional activation, subject matter experts, debris removal and technical assistance, and temporary housing technical monitoring. In addition, they are also focused on flood mitigation and reservoir operations.

    The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has activated its emergency response contact center in response to the devastating impacts of Hurricane Harvey. The Department’s K-12 and Higher Education stakeholders who are seeking informational resources should contact the Department toll free at 1-844-348-4082 or by email at HarveyRelief@ed.gov.

    The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Secretary of Energy has authorized the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to negotiate and execute two emergency exchange agreements with the Phillips 66 Lake Charles Refinery. This decision will authorize a total of 400,000 barrels of sweet crude oil and 600,000 barrels of sour crude oil to be drawn down from SPR’s West Hackberry site and delivered via pipeline to the Phillips 66 refinery. DOE continues to provide situation reports on its website, and has added a page to report gas price gouging.

    • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has deployed approximately 200 law enforcement personnel from Rapid Response Teams (RRTs) and Special Response Teams (SRTs) around the country to provide security for search and rescue teams and to assist with search and rescue operations.

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has deployed housing specialists to Texas and is deploying up to 100 additional personnel. HUD teams are currently evaluating damaged subsidized housing in the affected areas and they are developing comprehensive vacancy lists that will assist with relocating some shelter residents. HUD has also released a list of its programs that help following a disaster and we are beginning a social media Q&A push specifically targeting homeowners affected by the flood.

    The U.S. Department of the Interior released a message to employees and a video showing Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke commending the more than 100 Interior employees supporting the state of Texas through eight FEMA mission assignments as well hundreds of additional Interior personnel who are providing assistance.

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) has over 2,000 federal law enforcement personnel deployed to support public safety and security efforts in SE Texas consisting of 59 Quick Reaction Teams (QRTs) and 18 Mobile Command Vehicles (MCVs). 700 Federal Law Enforcement Officers (FLEOs) have been approved to support Houston Police Department. In addition, ATF has 225 SRT agents supporting the Houston FD and Houston PD.

    Department of Transportation (DOT)

    • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) handled emergency and relief operations at a number of airports in the Hurricane Harvey area, including Houston Hobby and George Bush Intercontinental. The FAA has issued over 40 unmanned aircraft system authorizations to drone operators supporting the response. The authorizations cover a broad range of activities by local, state and federal officials who are conducting damage assessments of critical infrastructure, homes and businesses to prioritize and expedite recovery activities.

    The Department of the Treasury has suspended certain tax filing and payment deadlines, as well as certain fuel excise taxes, for those affected. Loans and hardship distributions from employer-sponsored retirement plans have also been authorized, and facilities and personnel have been provided to assist with FEMA’s response efforts. They are encouraging national banks and federal savings associations to work with their customers affected by the storm by reassessing various fees and debt obligations, and we are working to ensure that all federal benefit payments reach those in the affected areas.

    • The Financial and Banking Information Infrastructure Committee (FBIIC), has been coordinating federal and state banking agencies’ responses to the storm’s impact on the financial sector in Texas. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing stands ready to process all requests for redemption of mutilated currency.
    • Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is providing help to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Special tax relief and assistance is available to taxpayers in the Presidential Disaster Areas. They are monitoring the situation closely to resolve potential tax administration issues as they are identified. The IRS frequently updates its information on disaster relief efforts related to Hurricane Harvey.

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continues to deploy response personnel to Austin, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Houston, and Corpus Christi where Unified Command teams are identifying and evaluating impacts of the hurricane and floods.

  • ESPN Robert Lee Back to Orwell’s “1984”?

    Today, Stonewall Jackson. Tomorrow, Michael, Reggie and Jackson Hole

    Some may see this as a pell-mell rush to replicate George Orwell’s “1984,” in which “every statue and street and building has been renamed.” But I don’t think it goes far enough.

    By Dana Milbank Opinion writer August 23, 2017  at 6:11 PM (full text below)

    If something is worth doing in America, it’s worth overdoing.

    ESPN proved this eternal truth anew this week when it announced that, in response to the violence in Charlottesville, it was removing announcer Robert Lee from broadcasting the University of Virginia football game in Charlottesville — because he has the same name as the Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. ESPN’s Lee is Asian American.

    Detailed summary of George Orwell Novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) by Colette COLMERAUER : PART 1 Chapter 1 ……

    The story of Winston Smith begins on a bright cold day.

    He works for the Ministry of Truth, which deals with news, education, entertainment and art.

    Added for clarity “1984” …. Winston Smith is a member of the Outer Party. He works in the Records Department in the Ministry of Truth, rewriting and distorting history. To escape Big Brother’s tyranny, at least inside his own mind, Winston begins a diary — an act punishable by death.

    There are three other Ministries:

    The Ministry of Plenty dealing with Economic Affairs

    The Ministry of Love dealing with law and torture

    And, the Ministry of Peace which deals with war and defence

    Everywhere in London there are giant posters of a dark eyed man with a moustache and a motto “Big Brother is looking at you”. Winston comes back home from work to his one room apartment.

    In this room a big telescreen transmits and receives non-stop information, so that you can be watched or listened to at anytime.

    But there is an alcove besides where he believes he cannot be seen. So he sits there and begins writing a journal, on an old book bought in an antiques shop. He writes the date: 4 April 1984.

    18 hours ago – Today, Stonewall Jackson. Tomorrow, Michael, Reggie and Jackson Hole. The inside track on Washington politics. Be the first to know about …

    If something is worth doing in America, it’s worth overdoing.

    ESPN proved this eternal truth anew this week when it announced that, in response to the violence in Charlottesville, it was removing announcer Robert Lee from broadcasting the University of Virginia football game in Charlottesville — because he has the same name as the Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. ESPN’s Lee is Asian American.

    Similar caution just led the University of Houston to change the name of its Calhoun Lofts dorm because it shares a name with the 19th-century vice president and white supremacist John C. Calhoun, even though, a university spokeswoman told the Houston Chronicle, “the residence hall was not named in recognition of John C. Calhoun” but a nearby street.

    In Atlanta, likewise, protesters last week attempted to tear down that city’s Peace Monument, apparently mistaking it for a Confederate shrine. The sculpture was erected to honor those who worked for reunification during Reconstruction.

    The movement to remove Confederate monuments can be a healthy one, if done legally, according to the wishes of local citizens and in such a way that preserves this history without glorifying it. But from across this great land come reminders that nothing in America succeeds like excess.

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a 90-day review of any statues on city property that could be “symbols of hate.” New Yorkers are now taking aim at the Christopher Columbus statue in Columbus Circle and the tomb of Ulysses S. Grant.

    Some object to the Theodore Roosevelt statue outside the Museum of Natural History, and others suggest the name “New York” itself may have to go because the Duke of York was a slave trader. New York chef Tom Colicchio dropped the name of his new restaurant because it was named after a building that was named after 19th-century publishers who had racist views.

    There’s a movement in Massachusetts to rename Boston’s Faneuil Hall, cradle of the Revolution, because the 1742 structure was built by a slave trader and owner, Peter Faneuil. Residents of Philadelphia and Seattle, not to be left out, want to remove statues of, respectively, Frank Rizzo and Vladimir Lenin.

    Some may see this as a pell-mell rush to replicate George Orwell’s “1984,” in which “every statue and street and building has been renamed.” But I don’t think it goes far enough.

    If we are to purge ourselves of Robert E. Lee (and ESPN’s Robert Lee) we must avoid confusion by renaming or replacing all things with names similar to the Confederate general’s: Bruce Lee, Tommy Lee, Spike Lee, Harper Lee, Bobby Lee, Lee jeans, Lee Majors and Lee Iacocca.

    It won’t do simply to rename schools named for the Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart. We’re going to have to rename Stuart Little, Stuart the Minion from “Despicable Me,” Jon Stewart, Martha Stewart and Jeb Bush. All statues of Jubal Early must come down. So must all things that share names with this Confederate general: early-bird specials, early morning, early retirement, early voting and early NBA-draft entry.

    If Confederate hero Nathan Bedford Forrest must go, so must the Redwood forest. Also the Gulf Stream waters. Fort A.P. Hill, an army base named for a Confederate general, must be renamed. So must Capitol Hill, Beacon Hill, Nob Hill, Bunker Hill, the Sugarhill Gang, Blueberry Hill, and Bill and Hill.

    Let us dispense with Jefferson Davis, by all means — but take with him Miles Davis, Sammy Davis Jr., Davis Love, the Davis Cup, the University of California at Davis, the Jefferson Hotel, Thomas Jefferson, George Jefferson, Louise “Weezy” Jefferson, Jefferson Pierce (Black Lightning) and especially Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, who also shares a name with Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard. Now that New Orleans has taken down its Beauregard statue, we’re also going to have to relocate Bo Jackson, Bo Derek and Bo Diddley.

    Memorials to Confederate Gen. Leonidas Polk cannot be moved without also erasing all trace of President James Polk, polka dances, polka dots, Hawaiian poke and Pokémon. Picket lines must be outlawed and picket fences flattened to avoid honoring Gen. George Pickett, and I will stonewall any attempt to disappear Gen. Thomas Jackson without also renaming Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Reggie Jackson, Percy Jackson, Action Jackson and Jackson Hole.

    I regret to say we must also rename my Washington Post colleague Philip Rucker, who shares a name with (though is not related to) Confederate Gen. Edmund Rucker.

    That’s asking a lot of Phil, but we all must do our share. I will be demanding a new name for my public high school, Calhoun High School. It’s not named for John C. but for Sanford H., a 20th-century New York school administrator who, to the best of my knowledge, did not own slaves. But you can’t be too careful.

    JUN 28, 2017 – A Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the Arkansas state capitol has been destroyed

    State Sen. Jason Rapert “The first thought that came to me – who else in the world destroys monuments – is it the same hatred that ISIS uses in the communities that they go into,” he said.

     “When people are so disturbed and they carry out acts of evil – it all comes from the same place – it’s the root of evil,” he said. “You have people taking sticks and bats on college campuses and covering their faces just like Hamas does in the Middle East. In California they tore up a student’s sign – much like the same act of violence that was perpetrated on the Arkansas state capitol grounds.”

    1781 THE FIRST AMERICAN BIBLE

    “THE TRUTH IS INCONTROVERTIBLE, MANIC MAY RESENT IT, IGNORANCE MAY DERIDE IT, MALICE MAY DISTORT IT, BUT HERE IT IS.”

    January 21, 1781, Robert Aitken presented the following memorial to Congress:

    1. Papers of the Continental Congress, No. 28, folio 203

    To the Honourable The Congress
    of the United States of America
    The Memorial of Robert Aitken
    of the City of Philadelphia, Printer

    Humbly Sheweth

    That in every well regulated Government in Christendom The Sacred Books of the Old and New Testament, commonly called the Holy Bible, are printed and published under the Authority of the Sovereign Powers, in order to prevent the fatal confusion that would arise, and the alarming Injuries the Christian Faith might suffer from the Spurious and erroneous Editions of Divine Revelation.

    That your Memorialist has no doubt but this work is an Object worthy

     the attention of THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WHO WILL NOT NEGLECT SPIRITUAL SECURITY,

    while they are virtuously contending for temporal blessings. Under this persuasion your Memorialist begs leave to inform your Honours

    THAT HE BOTH BEGUN AND MADE CONSIDERABLE PROGRESS IN A NEAT EDITION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES FOR THE USE OF SCHOOLS,

     But being cautious of suffering his copy of the Bible to Issue forth without the sanction of Congress, Humbly prays that your Honours would take this important matter into serious consideration & would be pleased to appoint one Member or Members of your Honourable Body to inspect his work so that the same

    MAY BE PUBLISHED UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF CONGRESS.

     And further, your Memorialist prays, that he may be commissioned or otherwise appointed & Authorized to print and vend Editions of the Sacred Scriptures, in such manner and form as may best suit the wants and demands of the good people of these States, provided the same be in all things perfectly consonant to the Scriptures as heretofore Established and received amongst us.

    ———————————————————————————–

     The Holy Bible Was Printed by Robert Aitken and Approved & Recommended by the Congress of the United States of America in 1782.

    Journals of Congress, September 1782, pages 468-469. (Library of Congress)

    The entire Congressional resolution reads as follows:

     “Whereupon, Resolved, THAT THE UNITED STATES IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED, HIGHLY APPROVE THE PIOUS AND LAUDABLE UNDERTAKING OF MR. AITKEN, as subservient to the interests of religion as well as an instance of the progress of arts in this country, and being satisfied from the above (chaplain’s) report, of his care and accuracy in the execution of the work, THEY RECOMMEND THIS EDITION OF THE BIBLE TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE UNITED STATES, and hereby authorize him to publish this recommendation in the manner he shall think proper.”

    ——————————————————————————

    “The only foundation for . . . a republic is to be laid in Religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.”

    Benjamin Rush United States Congress 1782

     “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable.”
    – George Washington

     “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” – Ronald Reagan

    BOTTOM LINE…

    Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.

    “The truth is incontrovertible, manic may resent it, ignorance may deride it, malice may distort it, but here it is.”

  • Hyper-globalization by Hook or by Crook?

    Starting were I left off on my last post, in the beginning, the 2001 preface was redefining globalization.

    THE CHANGE IN THE ROLE OF NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS (INCLUDED NEUTRALIZING THE POWER AND THE SOVEREIGNTY OF  U.S.A.) IS THE MOST EVIDENT IN THE CASE OF THE WCD.

    2001 IN THE END, THE ISSUE WAS NOT AND IS NOT ABOUT DAMS.

    Most of the critical reaction was expected. The report represented a significant departure from traditional thinking on the role of large dams in WATER and energy development.It introduced several considerations that were not previously given much weight in decision-making. This will take some getting used to.

     THE THEORY OF HYPERGLOBALISATION BY HOOK OR BY CROOK?

     (you decide)

     Hmmm…AUG 9, 2017 EXPOSING THE HOOKERS AND CROOKS.

     ———————————————————————————-

     AS NOTED IN THE 2001 COMMENT. SPECIFICALLY REWORDED REGARDING THE GLOBALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INCLUDING THE PAST THREE DECADES OF HYPERGLOBALISATION.

     —————————————————————————–

    WE THE PEOPLE of The United States government,  have witnessed a three-way migration of the authority-voluntary or INVOLUNTARY-once vested in US:

    The upward migration to supranational structures WITH FUNCTIONS ONCE VESTED  SOLELY THE UNITED STATE GOVERNMENT, WE THE PEOPLE,  such as the European Union (“EU”), the International Monetary Fund (“IMF”), or the World Trade Organization (“WTO”);  and outward migration to the GLOBAL market, corporations, and elements of civil society.

    GLOBALIZATION OF THE  UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN KEEPING WITH THE PRINCIPLE OF SUBSIDIARITY

    PROMINENT AMONG THESE ARE THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL INSTITUTIONS  AT THE  FOREFRONT OF GLOBAL ECONOMIC MANAGEMENT-THE WORLD BANK, THE IMF,  THE WTO AND TO A LESSER EXTENT THE ORGANIZATIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS.

    ——————————————————————————-

    The downward migration to regional and local levels go and IN RESPONSE TO WE THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA DEMAND FOR LIGHTER U.S. GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES;

    MANY FUNCTIONS FORMERLY RESTING WITH THE US GOVERNMENT IN CONGRESS,

    ARE NOW PRIVATIZED,  OR ABANDONED AND ADOPTED BY NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (“NGOS”) and other elements of civil society.

    INDEED,  THESE GLOBAL NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (“NGOS”) RETAIN A DECISION-MAKING STRUCTURE THAT IS BARELY ACCOUNTABLE TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND  WE THE PEOPLE, HARD WORKING, TAXPAYING, VOTING  AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    ————————————————

    WHY PRIVATIZED PROFITEERING ARAMARK is bring in FOREIGN VISA WORKERS from NIGERIA, INDIA, PAKISTAN, ROMANIA etc. And taking jobs away from American citizens in a very small communities in WA State?

    Ever wonder why the federal government would be allowing hundreds of foreign refugees to work in a relatively small town in Idaho?  including all of the above but not limited to, and for other purposes? Wonder no more. Many of them end up working in the world’s largest yogurt factory.

    ———————————————————————————-

    THE THEORY OF HYPERGLOBALISATION BY HOOK OR BY CROOK?  (you decide)

    ———————————————————————————

    GLOBALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY)

    GLOBALIZATION BY THE WORLD BANK, UNITED NATIONS in the USA, the European Union (EU), UNESCO, World heritage sites, man and the Biosphere, NATO, including all of the above but not limited to, and for other purposes

    GLOBALIZATION by giving away the control and use of Americas public land

    GLOBALIZATION AN INSIDE JOB, BY OBAMA’S DEMOCRATS IN CONTROL OF CONGRESS for eight years.

    GLOBALIZATION by civil service members in the USA is the Senior Executive service (SES)

    GLOBALIZATION BY IMMIGRATION

    GLOBALIZATION BY OBAMA’S APPOINTED. AN INSIDE JOB, giving away the control and use of Americas public land AND WATER.

    PUBLIC WATER TAKEN BY “RULE” EPA AND ARMY CORP (WOTUS)

    PUBIC LAND USE AND CONTROL TAKEN BY USFS  “AUTHORITY” AN NPS TAKEN BY “SELECTION”.

    GLOBALIZATION BY PRIVATIZATION, IN THE USA? START WITH ARAMARK CORP

    IN 2001 THE END ISSUE,WAS NOT AND IS STILL NOT DAMS.THE BOTTOM LINE WAS AND IS THE WORLD BANKS OVERLAPPING ATTEMPTS FOR THE GLOBALIZATION OF THE U.S.A.

    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PAST THREE DECADES OF HYPERGLOBALISATION?

     —————————————————————-

    THE HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?  (AN INSIDE JOB?)

    In April 2011, the EPA, under the Barack Obama administration, proposed a new set of guidelines to replace the two issued under the Bush administration. These guidelines formed the basis of what became the Clean Water Rule. In contrast to the manner in which the 2003 and 2007 guidelines were issued, THE EPA AND THE USACE CONDUCTED PEER-REVIEWED HYDROLOGICAL STUDIES, INTERAGENCY REVIEWS, AND ECONOMIC ANALYSES BEFORE PUBLISHING A FORMAL PROPOSED RULE ON APRIL 21, 2014.[12][15]

    On May 27, 2015, after a public comment period and numerous meetings with state entities, public and private stakeholders, then-EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy along with Assistant Army Secretary Jo-Ellen Darcy signed the Clean Water Rule, set to become effective in August of that year 2015.[1]

    THE GLOBAL HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?

    THIS ARTICLE IS 3 YEARS OLD The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim saidTHE WATER ISSUE IS CRITICALLY RELATED TO climate change. People say that carbon is the currency of climate change. WATER IS THE TEETH. FIGHTS OVER WATER AND FOOD ARE GOING TO BE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DIRECT IMPACTS OF climate change in the next five to 10 years. There’s just no question about it.

    The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim said ,DO WE HAVE A PLAN? ‘What do you mean a plan?’ I said a plan that’s equal to the challenge. A plan that will convince anyone who asks us that we’re really serious about climate change, and that we have a plan that can actually keep us at less than 2C warming. We still don’t have one.DO WE HAVE A PLAN? THE ANSWER, three years ago  WAS NO.

    ————————————————————————————

    DID THE WORLD BANK JUST GET LUCKY?

    Two years later the World Bank had a Global plan. Thanks to Obama and his appointed Administration WOTUS BY RULE.
