    THE PERTINENT QUESTION AS FAR AS REGULATORY BURDENS ARE CONCERNED IS WHAT THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND MEMORANDA ARE USED FOR AND WHAT THEY DO…….

    Thank God, President Trump, and his  incoming  administration, has promised to restore checks and balances on administrative agencies and appoint federal officials with integrity who will protect the rights of all Americans—not just their preferred special interests.

     WOW.. the more I document and know… The more I must document and post what We the People, American Citizens don’t know……

    Ten Thousand Commandments 2016 (an 89 page report)

    An Annual Snapshot of the Federal Regulatory State

    Clyde Wayne Crews • May 3, 2016

    In January 2016, the Congressional Budget  Office (CBO) reported outlays for fiscal year (FY) 2015 of $3.687 trillion and projected spending for FY 2016 at $3.919 trillion. Discretionary, entitlement, and interest spending is projected to surpass $4 trillion in 2017 and to top $5 trillion by FY 2022.2High debt and deficits notwithstanding, $5 trillion in annual spending will soon be the new normal.

    Highlights of the 2016 edition include:

    • The federal regulatory cost reached $1.885 trillion in 2015.
    • FEDERAL REGULATION IS A HIDDEN TAX THAT AMOUNTS TO NEARLY $15,000 PER U.S. HOUSEHOLD EACH YEAR.
    • In 2015, 114 laws were enacted by Congress during the calendar year, while 3,410 rules were issued by agencies. Thus, 30 rules were issued for every law enacted last year.
    • Many Americans complain about taxes, but regulatory compliance costs exceed the $1.82 trillion that the IRS is expected to collect in both individual and corporate income taxes from 2015.
    • Some 60 federal departments, agencies, and commissions have 3,297 regulations in development at various stages in the pipeline.
    • The top five federal rulemaking agencies account for 41 percent of all federal regulations. These are the Departments of the Treasury, Commerce, Interior, Health and Human Services, and Transportation.
    • The 2015 Federal Register contains 80,260 pages, the third highest page count in its history. Of the seven all-time-highest Federal Register total page counts, six occurred under President Obama.
    • The George W. Bush administration averaged 62 major regulations annually over eight years, while the Obama administration has averaged 81 major regulations annually over seven years.

    An Annual Snapshot of  the Federal Regulatory State

    2015 Edition by Clyde Wayne Crews Jr.

    REGULATION: THE HIDDEN TAX

    Federal environmental, safety and health, and economic regulations affect

    the economy by hundreds of billions—perhaps trillions—of dollars annually,

    in addition to the official dollar outlays that dominate the federal policy

    debate.

     THE PRECISE REGULATORY COSTS CAN NEVER BE FULLY KNOWN because, unlike taxes, they are unbudgeted and often indirect. But scattered government and private data exist about the number of regulations issued, their costs and effects, and the agencies that issue them.

    Compiling some of that information can make the federal regulatory enterprise somewhat more comprehensible. THAT COMPILATION IS ONE PURPOSE OF TEN THOUSAND COMMANDMENTS, highlights of which follow:

    Based on the best available federal government data, past reports, and contemporary studies, this report highlights estimated regulatory compliance and economic costs of $1.88 trillion annually.

    In 2014, 224 laws were enacted by Congress during the calendar year, whereas 3,554 rules were issued by agencies. Thus, 16 rules were issued for every law enacted last year.

    The “Unconstitutionality Index,” the ratio of regulations issued by agencies to laws passed by Congress and signed by the president, was 16 for 2014 and 51 for 2013. The average for the decade has been 26. This disparity highlights the delegation of lawmaking power to unelected agency officials.

    If one assumed that all costs of federal regulation and intervention flowed all the way down to households, U.S. households would “pay” $14,976 annually on average in regulatory hidden tax. That payment amounts to 23 percent of the average income of $63,784 and 29 percent of the expenditure budget of $51,100. The “tax” exceeds every item in the budget except housing. More is “spent”on embedded regulation than on health care, food, transportation, entertainment, apparel and services, and savings. The estimated cost of regulation exceeds half the level of the federal spending itself, which was $3.5 trillion in 2014.

    Regulatory costs of $1.88 trillion amount to 11 percent of the U.S. GDP, which was estimated at $17.4 trillion in 2014 by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis.

    When regulatory costs are combined with federal FY 2014 outlays of $3.5 trillion, the federal government’s share of the entire economy now reaches 30.6 percent.

    The costs of the regulatory “hidden tax” surpass federal income tax receipts. Regulatory compliance costs exceed 2014 total individual income tax revenues of $1.386 trillion.

    Regulatory compliance costs vastly exceed the 2014 estimated U.S. corporate income tax revenues of $333 billion and rival corporate pretax profits of $2.235 trillion.

    If it were a country, U.S. regulation would be the world’s tenth-largest economy, ranking behind Russia and ahead of India.

    U.S. regulatory costs exceed each of the GDPs of Australia and Canada, the highest income nations among the countries ranked most free in the annual Index of Economic Freedom and Economic Freedom of the World reports.

     

    The Weidenbaum Center at Washington University in St. Louis and the Regulatory Studies Center at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.,

    JOINTLY ESTIMATE THAT AGENCIES SPENT $59.5 BILLION (ON BUDGET) TO ADMINISTER AND POLICE THE REGULATORY ENTERPRISE. ADDING THE $1.88 TRILLION IN OFF-BUDGET COMPLIANCE COSTS BRINGS THE TOTAL RECKONED REGULATORY ENTERPRISE TO ABOUT $1.94 TRILLION.

    Among the six all-time-high Federal Register page counts, five have occurred under President Obama.

    The annual outflow of more than 3,500 final rules—sometimes far above that level—means that 90,836 rules have been issued since 1993.

    The Federal Register finished 2014 at 77,687 pages, the sixth-highest level in its history. Federal Register pages devoted specifically to final rules stand at 24,861 in 2014. The record high is 26,417 in 2013.

    The 2014 Federal Register contained 3,554 final rules and 2,383 proposed rules. Since the nation’s founding, more than 15,209 executive orders have been issued.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA ISSUED 215 BY THE END OF 2014.

    President George W. Bush’s administration averaged 62 major rules annually during his eight years in office; Obama’s six years so far have averaged 81.

    Whereas the federal government issues more than 3,500 rules annually, public notices in the Federal Register normally exceed 24,000 annually, with uncounted “guidance documents” and other materials among them. There were 23,970 notices in 2014, and there have been 501,899 since 1995.

    Sixty federal departments, agencies, and commissions have 3,415 regulations at various stages of implementation, according to the 2014 “Regulatory Plan and the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions,” which lists federal regulatory actions at various stages of implementation.

    Of the 3,415 regulations in the pipeline, 200 are “economically significant” rules, which the federal government defines as having annual effects on the economy of $100 million or more. Assuming that those rule making effects are primarily regulatory implies roughly $20 billion yearly in future off-budget regulatory costs.

    Of the 3,415 regulations now in the works, 674 affect small businesses. Of those, 374 required a regulatory flexibility analysis; 300 were otherwise noted by agencies to affect small businesses.

    The five most active rule-producing agencies—the departments of the Treasury, Interior, Commerce, Transportation, and Health and Human Services—account for 1,453 rules, or 43 percent of all rules in the Unified Agenda pipeline.

    The Environmental Protection Agency, which was formerly ranked consistently in the top five, is now sixth, but adding its 186 rules brings the total from the top six rulemaking agencies to 1,639 rules, or 48 percent of all federal rules

    The pertinent question as far as regulatory burdens are concerned is what these executive orders and memoranda are used for and what they do…….

    We live in an era in which the government— without actually passing a law—increasingly dictates parameters of various economic sectors, including health care, retirement, education, energy production, finance, land and resource management, funding of science and research, and manufacturing. Executive actions and decrees issued in a limited government context have different implications than do those issued in an era of activist government, rendering some of what transpires today without precedent………

    Counting rules and regulations, executive orders, memoranda, and other regulatory guidance gets us only so far. These actions need more scrutiny and oversight, because they have become powerful means of working around the constitutional system of legislation made by an elected body.[69]

    Are you concerned, with any of Obama Executive Orders and Memorandums

    IVE GOT A PEN AND I’VE GOT A PHONE.

    AND THAT’S ALL I NEED.

    BARACK OBAMA

    FROM RULE OF LAW TO RULE BY…WHATEVER?

    President Obama famously pledged to use his “pen and phone” to implement parts of his policy agenda without congressional approval.[51] Executive orders, presidential memoranda, and other executive actions make up a large component of that initiative.[52] This section examines those numbers, but a considerable amount of executive branch activity is not well measured and merits heightened attention, especially when an administration so explicitly emphasizes unilateral action.[53]

    Presidential memoranda since 1999— which presidential scholar Phillip Cooper has termed “executive orders by another name”—are also depicted in Figure 15.[55] Memoranda may or may not be published, depending on the administration’s own determination of “general applicability and legal effect,” making it “difficult to count presidential memoranda.”[56] Obama’s pace since 2009 tops that of George W. Bush, which is unsurprising given his administration’s openness about prioritizing executive action. Bush published 129 memoranda over his entire presidency, whereas Obama issued 219 during his first seven years that were published in the Federal Register

    This kind of bullying and intimidation of Americans by a federal agency must be shut down. The incoming Trump administration has the opportunity to restore checks and balances on administrative agencies and appoint federal officials with integrity who will protect the rights of all Americans—not just their preferred special interests.

    Originally posted at The Daily Signal. 

    President-elect Donald Trump has a golden opportunity to restrain other overzealous regulators. One place to start is at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which governs private-sector labor relations. Originally built to act as an impartial agency that represents the public in labor disputes, the agency has become overly political and prone to playing favorites.

    Jun 24, 2016 – The U.K. has voted to leave the European Union, a surprise result that has stunned the political establishment and sent shock waves around …

    —————————————————

    But it’s true.

    Since England voted to get out of the European Union, Americans now see that it’s actually possible.

    WE CAN GET THE UNITED STATES OUT OF THE UN!!!!

    But the time to strike is NOW!

    Today, right now:

    Sign your Demand for a Referendum to Exit the UN

    This vital document demands that Congress take immediate action to set up a national referendum – a national vote – for the American people to finally have a say – Do we leave the United Nations or not?

    That’s exactly what the British did to get a chance to leave the European Union!

    People said it wasn’t possible to even demand such a vote. But they got it.

    Then they said there was no way the British people would support a vote to leave the European Union.

    But they did – and they shocked the world!

    The people of Great Britain voted to take back control over their lives.

    Now it’s OUR turn.

    We the People of the United States demand our right to be heard.

    We demand our voice in deciding how much power government will have over our lives.

    And we demand to have the ability to vote on that power – to not be controlled by a non-elected dictatorship like the United Nations!

    Sign your Demand for a Referendum to Exit the UN

    The fact is the UN is driving to enforce global policies that would:

    • Tax us without representation and set up a global IRS.
    • Create an international police force that would threaten the independence and security of our nation.
    • Create its own court system with no right to trial by jury of our peers, with a special focus on prosecuting “right wing extremists” (that means you and me!).
    • Interfere with our Constitutional form of government through a series of international treaties.
    • Ram thousands of ‘refugees” from the hate-America Islamist Third World into our cities and towns, overriding the objections of American citizens.

    When King George did these things to the colonies, our Founding Fathers took action to stop him.

    Now, to preserve the freedoms secured for us by our courageous founders, It’s urgent that you and I take immediate action and call for this referendum to exit the U.S. from the UN.

    The fact is the United Nations is the root of all the threats we face. It is the most dangerous force on Earth, and no moral nation should ever be a part of it.

    England had enough of the tyranny of the EU that was destroying its economy and its national independence.

    The shock waves of England’s exit from the EU has stirred other nations, including France, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands, to begin their own calls for exiting the European Union.

    That is spreading panic into the New World Order crowd who thought they had us under control. They are panicked!

    Now it’s OUR turn.

    Imagine their panic when we succeed in getting an American UN/exit vote!

    That’s why I’m asking you to join this revolution for freedom by signing your attached Demand for Referendum on Exiting the United Nations. The time is ripe to flood Congress with thousands of these Demands.

    My American Policy Center (APC) has done it before. Ten years ago APC delivered over one million petitions to Congress to demand that the US get out of the UN.

    And we were winning the debate when polls showed over 60% of the American people supported our efforts to get out of the UN.

    Unfortunately, the terrorist attacks on September 11th scared the American people and President George Bush went crying to the UN for help, destroying our efforts to get out.

    Well, now we have a new chance. The British vote has renewed the hope that nations can be free of this world government monster.

    The first step is to get a referendum to vote it out.

    So please, take that first step right now – sign your Demand for a Referendum to Exit the UN.

    Sign your Demand for a Referendum to Exit the UN

    And will you please help me build this referendum campaign with your financial support?

    APC created the nation-wide battle to stop Agenda 21. APC also led the successful battle to stop President Bush from creating a North American Union.  And APC has been an internationally- recognized leader in the fight to get us out of the UN.

    APC is a fierce, effective voice in the fight for the principles of liberty.

    But individual contributions like yours are APC’s ONLY source of income. We receive no grants or large corporate donations. So your support is vital to APC’s work.

    I believe the time is very short for America’s independence if the UN’s global governance agenda goes forward unchecked.

    Already Obama is working to again create the North American Union – the very threat the British just overthrew.

    The time is now. The British did it against all odds. So can we!

    Please help me save our nation’s independence.

    Sign your Demand for a Referendum to Exit the UN

    In liberty,

    Tom DeWeese
    President

    From an early date 1958, they had bumper stickers with the slogan “Get the U.S. out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the U.S.!”[5]

    The United States of America has been a member-state of the United Nations since its inception as a supranational entity in 1945.[1]

    Opposition to the United Nations and its predecessor, the League of Nations, has existed from the time of formation.

    From an early date 1958, they had bumper stickers with the slogan “Get the U.S. out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the U.S.!”[5]

    Since the 1990s some conservative members of Congress [2] have claimed that the United Nations subverts American sovereignty.

    The John Birch Society, an anti-communistgroup founded in 1958, was opposed to US involvement from the society’s beginning

    From an early date they had bumper stickers with the slogan “Get the U.S. out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the U.S.!”[5] Another withdrawal advocate at the time was the National Review, which once editorialized that the UN should be “liquidated”.[5]

    Utah state representative Don Bush, has claimed that many programs by the supranational entity have violated the US Constitution, such as the implementation of the International Court of Justice and the Law of the Sea Treaty, both of which the United States does not currently endorse.[3]

    Dear Sir or Madame,

    We the People have presented many requests to our Congress in this past two years, some of which you have chosen to ignore. You were voted into office to act FOR the people of the United States, NOT to make decisions independent of our desires.

    We respectfully Demand that you De-fund and remove the United Nations from any governing position in the United States, including but not limited to Agenda 21, and ICLEI.

    Our Independence is the very foundation that makes America a great and proud Nation. We cannot allow America to become a party to global governance, lest we lose that Independence. The United States will then become like any other country, lacking the Freedom of Choice which make us unique and which our Founding Fathers fought and gave their lives for.

    The implementation of Agenda 21 in the United States will not only destroy our independence, but will remove all Freedom of Choice, as every aspect of our lives will be governed by an outside entity who does not have Americas best interests at heart. The very idea that Americans would be governed by an outside entity is absolutely appalling and unacceptable.

    We will not be herded into a state of socialized “sustainable development”; we will not stand idly by and watch as Americas Freedoms become the property of the United Nations.

    By our signature, We beseech you to act upon this Demand.

    Dallas police shooting: Live updates as five officers killed during Black Lives Matter protest

     

    An ex army veteran used his military training to carry out a coordinated ambush which left five police officers dead.

    Former corporal Micah Xavier Johnson used an AR-15 style rifle to target white officers at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, Texas on Thursday night.

    Horrifying footage emerged showing a police officer being executed at point blank range and another from a man who live streamed the shocking scenes.

    25-year-old Johnson’s massacre ended after an intense firefight with police when he was blown up by a robot sent in carrying a bomb.

    Three other people, two men and a woman, were arrested but officials have said Johnson was a lone gunman.

    The victims have been named as Senior Cpl. Lorne Ahrens, 48, Officer Michael Krol, 40, Sgt. Michael J. Smith, 55, Officer Patrick Zamarripa and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) police officer Brent Thompson, 43.

    Racial tensions have been rising across the country after the shooting dead of several unarmed black men – the full background on that here.

    THEY HAVE PAVED THE WAY FOR GLOBALIZATION AS THE PROCESS OF CONNECTING THE WORLD AS WELL AS RESHAPING IT INTO A ”GLOBAL VILLAGE”

    —————————————————

    This appears to be Pro-Globalization?

    ——————————————–

    Globalization is clearly affected by the postmodern idea of power forged by global players such as corporations, powerful countries, the World Bank, MMF, UN, transnational public and secret organizations as creators of the New World Order.

    Naturally, they do not follow wishes of people who would like such creation but rather those of global players.

    ——————————————————-

    The media is liberal? The power players control the media?

    Like I said, This appears to be Pro-Globalization?

    WHATEVER…  PRO OR CON, THERE IS LOTS OF INTERESTING STUFF TO READ

    ————————————————————-

     REGARDING MEDIA STRATEGY, the world can be presented only according to the wishes of power structures via media as their transmission channels in function of manipulation, brainwashing and production of approval to all possible sick solutions.

    Chomsky wrote about that in many of his books. He elaborated on various strategies of manipulating public such as the strategy of ”distraction” (inversion of problem), strategy ”create problems, then offer solutions”, ”gradual strategy” in sense of gradual production of approval from the public, ”strategy of deferring” or announcement of unpopular changes, strategy ”go to the public as a little child” or wandering, strategy ”use the emotional side more than the reflection” (manipulation by fears and emotions, what Hitler’s and Stalin’s propaganda had already done),

    STRATEGY ”KEEP THE PUBLIC IN IGNORANCE AND MEDIOCRITY” in which less educated become vulnerable target for manipulation

    and production of approval, strategy of ”self-blame strengthen” to induce emotion in an individual that he/she alone is responsible for his/her position and, finally, strategy ”getting to know individuals better than they know themselves”

    TO ESTABLISH FULL CONTROL AND POWER OVER HUMAN BEHAVIOR. It all happens under the auspices of SIMULATED DEMOCRACY.

    THIS IS WHAT WE CALL DEMOCRACY OR CRAWLING TOTALITARIANISM ON THE GLOBAL SCALE. In flagranti!

    Some of these strategies can be identified on the example of manufactured refugee and immigrant crisis or Migration Period

    1. Prologue

    The trust in progress and continuation of modernization has led us into a new huge transformation of the world. Changes in all spheres of life have occured under the influence of highly developed information and communication technologies.

     THEY HAVE PAVED THE WAY FOR GLOBALIZATION AS THE PROCESS OF CONNECTING THE WORLD AS WELL AS RESHAPING IT INTO A ”GLOBAL VILLAGE”. Romantic fervor and faith in globalization have gradually diminished. Political realism, as well as every other, currently abates such romantic fervor and optimism. Globalization is clearly affected by the postmodern idea of power forged by global players such as corporations, powerful countries, the World Bank, MMF, UN, transnational public and secret organizations as creators of the New World Order.

    Naturally, they do not follow wishes of people who would like such creation but rather those of global players.

    It is evident now that anti-globalization movements have not been led by people standing on the other side of the barricade but by mighty structures which even finance movements to prevent them from crossing the line and putting everything in danger. And that is also part of the power play! The power play (technological, military, economic, informatic, media, cultural and metacultural) has indicated uneven effects of globalization, precarious balance in favor of heterogenous oligarchy, unequal distribution of wealth, uncontrolled global risk society, enormous demographic changes, mass economic and forced migrations.

     RECONSTRUCTION OF THE BALKANS IN THE AGE OF GLOBALIZATION: Power play and the power of play

    The time in which we live is marked by evergrowing influence of knowledge, information and technology, globalism and globalization as a new integration of the world at the turn of the century. It can be denoted as the postmodern condition, second modernity or liquid modernity.

    ·         Lost in the political macro cosmos of EU

    1 July 2015   The text offers a short blogosphere anatomy of a condition which I hope will turn out as a temporary failure. I intend to analyse values and provide rational guidelines for further action…

    Snippet

    Two years ago, political microcosm called Croatia has become a part of political macrocosm called the EU or the Eurosphere as a political construction of second modernity in a globalized world. And that is not irrelevant as well! THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA BECAME A FULL MEMBER STATE OF THE EU TODAY, ON 1 JULY AD 2013.

     From that day on, in terms of phenomenological sociology focused on the analysis of everyday life, there are only few things that indicate the fact that the Republic of Croatia forms part of the everyday political reality of the EU or the Eurosphere. Croatia acts as if it is not a member of the EU and experiences serious problems with semiotics and its own interpretation to which political space does it belong. It affiliates with the Region and lives in an undefined interspace between the EU (Eurosphere) and the Region as a newly constructed imaginary geography of depersonalized states.

    snippet…

    It is a society that resembles a group of collectors of empty bottles in which there are more collectors than bottles to be found. We are not talking about a minor and insignificant sociological fact but rather an alarming one! We are talking about a poor society, a wretched and almost declassed middle class, mighty oligarchy or profiteers from war and economic transition being regarded as new pillars of society. Features of such society lost in political macrocosm of the EU (Eurosphere) include inefficient and slow public administration, high unemployment rate (in April 2015 it amounted to 17.5% or 310 936), mass emigration of younger population (around 48 000 recently emigrated) with European Comission forecast stating that 166-217 thousand of the most educated will leave the country in seven years from now on. It is a society sentenced to demographic deterioration and disappearance unless dystopian tendencies finally stop. Meanwhile prominent politicians holding executive power communicate poorly or not at all. This relates to the lack of communication from the PM and the president as well as irrational discussions on historical issues without any willingness and wish to move toward the future.
