    I do investigating reporting on my website.

    Concerned American Citizens send me tips, I received one the first week in Nov 2016, about a FOURTH SECRET POWER EMBEDDED in the US Government.

    WHAT THE HELL IS THE FOURTH SECRET POWER IN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT?

    In the U.S. Constitution there are only THREE  separate powers of Government

    ONE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLE EMBODIED IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS SEPARATION OF POWERS. … EACH OF THE THREE GOVERNMENTAL BRANCHES, LEGISLATIVE, EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL, “CHECKS” THE POWERS OF THE OTHER BRANCHES TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINCIPAL POWERS OF THE GOVERNMENT ARE NOT CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF ANY SINGLE BRANCH.

    I’ve spent hundreds of hours researching, reading, documenting and critically thinking (connecting the dots) and there is only one fourth secret power embedded in the US Government, that fits the criteria.

    ARE THE 7000 (SES) SENIOR CAREER UNTOUCHABLE  EXECUTIVES IN CIVIL SERVICE, TRAINED AND PROVIDED BY (SES) THAT OPERATES AND OVERSEE NEARLY EVERY GOVERNMENT ACTIVITY IN APPROXIMATELY 75 FEDERAL AGENCIES.

    Obama signs “Ted Kaufman’s” Transition Act – The News Journal

    www.delawareonline.com/story/opinion/…/obamasigns-ted…transition…/82255556/

    MAR 25, 2016 – A BILL SIGNED MARCH 18, BY PRESIDENT OBAMA bears the name of a Delawarean, Ted Kaufman. The “Edward ‘Ted’ Kaufman and Michael Leavitt

     PRESIDENTIAL TRANSITIONS ... President Obama’s handoff to his successor will be much smoother. … In a rare bipartisan moment it passed the Senate unanimously

    Presidential Transitions Improvements Act of 2015.”\17\

    (Sec. 2) This bill amends the Presidential Transition Act of 1963 to direct the President to plan and coordinate activities to facilitate an efficient transfer of power to a successor President, including by: (1) not later than six months before a presidential election, establishing and operating a White House transition coordinating council; and (2) establishing and operating an agency transition directors council.

    To ENSURE that agencies plan adequately for transitions, this section also requires that not later than six months before Election Day, the head of each agency

    —————————————————————————

    Just asking? TO ENSURE IN APPROXIMATELY 75 FEDERAL AGENCIES?

     ————————————————————————

    SHALL DESIGNATE A SENIOR CAREER EMPLOYEE of each major component and subcomponent of the agency to overseetransition activities.  Also, not later than September 15 of a presidential election year, for each critical non-career position in an agency,

    the head of the agency SHALL DESIGNATE A QUALIFIED CAREER EMPLOYEE to serve in an acting capacity during the transition. THIS SECTION ALSO REQUIRES, to the greatest extent practicable, the negotiation of memorandums of understanding between the incumbent administration (acting through the Federal Transition Coordinator) and the transition teams of major candidates, not later than November 1 of a presidential election year. To the greatest extent practicable, the memorandums of understanding SHALL BE BASED on those from past transitions.

    (Sec. 4) This section directs the Office of Personnel Management to submit

     TO SPECIFIED CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEES ANNUAL REPORTS ON REQUESTS BY AGENCIES TO APPOINT POLITICAL APPOINTEES OR FORMER POLITICAL APPOINTEES TO NONPOLITICAL CIVIL SERVICE POSITIONS.

    These reports shall be submitted quarterly in the last year of a presidential term or in the last year of the second consecutive term of a President.

    (Sec. 5) This section directs the Government Accountability Office to report to specified congressional committees on final significant regulatory actions promulgated during the last 120-day period of presidential administrations ending in 2001, 2009, and 2017.

    A significant regulatory action means any regulatory action that is likely to result in a rule that may: (1) have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, the environment, productivity, competition, jobs, public health or safety, or state, local, or tribal governments or communities; (2) create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an agency action; (3) materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs,

    OR (4) RAISE NOVEL LEGAL OR POLICY ISSUES.

    HOW CONSTITUTIONAL IS THE “UNCHECKED” (SES) SENIOR EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF FOURTH POWER?

    IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION THERE ARE ONLY THREE  SEPARATE POWERS OF GOVERNMENT

    ONE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLE EMBODIED IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS SEPARATION OF POWERS. … EACH OF THE THREE GOVERNMENTAL BRANCHES, LEGISLATIVE, EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL, “CHECKS” THE POWERS OF THE OTHER BRANCHES TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINCIPAL POWERS OF THE GOVERNMENT ARE NOT CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF ANY SINGLE BRANCH.

    she wrote. “That scheme, WHICH IMPAIRS THE PRESIDENT’S ABILITY TO SUPERVISE THE EXECUTION OF THE FEDERAL CIVIL SERVICE LAWS, is inconsistent with the Appointments Clause.”

    INDEED, WE THE PEOPLE ARE DELIGHTED THAT DURING THE GOVERNMENT TRANSITION TRUMP IS DRAINING THE WA DC SWAMP AND REWARDING POLITICAL FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS WITH 4000 POSITIONS.

     TO THE VICTOR GO THE SPOILS

    In 1828, the “spoils system,”  in which political friends and supporters were rewarded with Government positions, was in full force. The term “spoils system” was derived from the phrase “to the victor go the spoils.” In the years after Jackson’s Presidency, the flaws and abuses in this system were serious. Political appointees were required to spend more and more time and money on political activities. As the Federal bureaucracy grew, Presidents were increasingly hounded by job seekers. In Jackson’s time there were approximately 20,000 Federal employees. By 1884 there were over 130,000. Additionally, with the industrialization of America, Federal jobs became more specialized and required special and specific skills.

    The Pendleton Act transformed the nature of public service. Today many well-educated and well-trained professionals have found a rewarding career in Federal service. When the Pendleton Act went into effect, only 10 percent of the Government’s 132,000 employees were covered. Today (date unknown), more than 90 percent of the 2.7 million Federal employees are covered.

  • Why is Labor Day a National Holiday?

    FEDERAL INTERVENTION

    Under direction from President Grover Cleveland,

    THOUSANDS OF UNITED STATES MARSHALS AND SOME 12,000 UNITED STATES ARMY TROOPS, COMMANDED BY BRIGADIER GENERAL NELSON MILES, TOOK ACTION.

    The arrival of the military and the subsequent deaths of workers in violence led to further outbreaks of violence. During the course of the strike, 30 strikers were killed and 57 were wounded. Property damage exceeded $80 million.

    WHEN THE STRIKE ENDED, THE RAILROADS FIRED AND BLACKLISTED ALL THE EMPLOYEES WHO HAD SUPPORTED IT.

    FOLLOWING THE DEATHS OF WORKERS AT THE HANDS OF United States Army AND United States Marshals Service DURING THE Pullman Strike OF 1894,

    ——————————————————————–

    IN 1894, IN AN EFFORT TO CONCILIATE ORGANIZED LABOR AFTER THE STRIKE, PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND AND CONGRESS DESIGNATED LABOR DAY AS A FEDERAL HOLIDAY.

    LEGISLATION FOR THE HOLIDAY WAS PUSHED THROUGH CONGRESS SIX DAYS AFTER THE STRIKE ENDED.

    ————————————————————————-

    The bottom line…

    WHY WOULD ANY AMERICAN CITIZEN CELEBRATE LABOR DAY?

    Is this what they are teaching to American school kids  as common core education?

    THE 1894 FEDERAL LABOR DAY HOLIDAY Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.

    ——————————————————————————————-

    REALLY?  HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE?

    THE 1894 FEDERAL LABOR DAY HOLIDAY WAS CREATED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND CONGRESS  AS A BIPARTISAN POLITICO APPEASEMENT ATTEMPT  TO SHORE UP SUPPORT AMONG TRADE UNIONS……. PERIOD 

    ———————————————————————-

    Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it.

    What happened in America in 1893- 1894?

    Document…  Document…. Document…..

    Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it

    ———————————————————————

    THE HISTORY OF LABOR DAY

    Most factory workers who built Pullman cars lived in the “company town” of Pullman on the Southside of Chicago, Illinois

    DURING A SEVERE DEPRESSION (THE PANIC OF 1893), the Pullman Palace Car Company cut wages as demand for new passenger cars plummeted and the company’s revenue dropped. A delegation of workers complained that wages had been cut but not rents at their company housing or other costs in the company town. The company owner, George Pullman, refused to lower rents or go to arbitration.

    Among the reasons for the strike were the absence of Democracy within the town of Pullman and its politics, the rigid paternalistic control of the workers by the company, excessive water and gas rates, and a refusal by the company to allow workers to buy and own houses.

    When his company laid off workers and lowered wages, it did not reduce rents, and the workers called for a strike.

    ——————————————————–

    YOU LOAD 16 TONS AND WHAT DO YOU GET A “company town” AND DEEPER IN DEBT

    ————————————————————-

    The conflict began in Pullman, Chicago, on May 11 when nearly 4,000 factory employees of the Pullman Company began a wildcat strike IN RESPONSE TO RECENT REDUCTIONS IN WAGES. DURING A SEVERE DEPRESSION

    Debs began the boycott on June 26, 1894. Within four days, 125,000 workers on twenty-nine railroads had “walked off” the job rather than handle Pullman cars.

    The PULLMAN STRIKE was a nationwide railroad strike in the United States on May 11, 1894. It pitted the American Railway Union (ARU) against the Pullman Company, the main railroads, and the federal government of the United States under President Grover Cleveland. The strike and boycott shut down much of the nation’s freight and passenger traffic west of Detroit, Michigan.

    ———————————————————————–

    MEDIA COVERAGE BIPARTISAN POLITICO DISAGREEMENT, APPEASEMENT  AND PUBLIC OPINION

    PUBLIC OPINION  WAS mostly opposed to the strike and supported Cleveland’s actions.

    BIPARTISAN POLITICO DISAGREEMENT  Republicans and eastern Democrats supported Cleveland (the leader of the northeastern pro-business wing of the party), while southern and western Democrats, as well as Populists, generally denounced him. Governor John Peter Altgeld of Illinois, a Democrat, denounced Cleveland and said he could handle all disturbances in his state without federal intervention.

    MEDIA COVERAGE WAS EXTENSIVE AND GENERALLY NEGATIVE. A COMMON TROPE IN NEWS REPORTS AND EDITORIALS DEPICTED THE BOYCOTTERS AS FOREIGNERS WHO CONTESTED THE PATRIOTISM EXPRESSED BY THE MILITIAS AND TROOPS INVOLVED, AS NUMEROUS RECENT IMMIGRANTS WORKED IN THE FACTORIES AND ON THE RAILROADS.

    MEDIA COVERAGE  THE EDITORS WARNED OF MOBS, ALIENS, ANARCHY, AND DEFIANCE OF THE LAW.

     The New York Times called it “a struggle between the greatest and most important labor organization and the entire railroad capital.”[ In Chicago the established church leaders denounced the boycott, but some younger Protestant ministers defended it.

    THE ILLINOIS GOVERNOR JOHN P. ALTGELD WAS INCENSED AT CLEVELAND FOR PUTTING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AT THE SERVICE OF THE EMPLOYERS, AND FOR REJECTING ALTGELD’S PLAN TO USE HIS STATE MILITIA RATHER THAN FEDERAL TROOPS TO KEEP ORDER.

    In Billings, Montana, an important rail center, a local Methodist minister, J. W. Jennings, supported the ARU.

    In a sermon he compared the Pullman boycott to the Boston Tea Party, and attacked Montana state officials and President Cleveland for abandoning “the faith of the Jacksonian fathers.

    ” Rather than defending “the rights of the people against aggression and oppressive corporations,” he said party leaders were “the pliant tools of the codfish monied aristocracy who seek to dominate this country.

     Billings remained quiet but on July 10, soldiers reached Lockwood, Montana, a small rail center, where the troop train was surrounded by hundreds of angry strikers. Narrowly averting violence, the army opened the lines through Montana.

    WHEN THE STRIKE ENDED, THE RAILROADS FIRED AND BLACKLISTED ALL THE EMPLOYEES WHO HAD SUPPORTED IT.

    —————————————————————–

    LABOR DAY MEDIA COVERAGE BIPARTISAN POLITICO APPEASEMENT  AND PUBLIC OPINION

    FOLLOWING THE DEATHS OF WORKERS AT THE HANDS OF United States Army AND United States Marshals Service DURING THE Pullman Strike OF 1894,

    In 1894, in an effort to conciliate organized labor after the strike, President Grover Cleveland and Congress designated Labor Day as a federal holiday. Legislation for the holiday was pushed through Congress six days after the strike ended. Samuel Gompers, who had sided with the federal government in its effort to end the strike by the American Railway Union, spoke out in favor of the holiday

    PRESIDENT  GROVER CLEVELAND SUPPORTED THE CREATION OF THE NATIONAL HOLIDAY IN AN ATTEMPT TO SHORE UP SUPPORT AMONG TRADE UNIONS FOLLOWING THE PULLMAN STRIKE.

    ——————————————————————–

    THE REST OF THE STORY

    CLEVELAND’S ADMINISTRATION APPOINTED A NATIONAL COMMISSION TO STUDY THE CAUSES OF THE 1894 STRIKE; IT FOUND GEORGE PULLMAN’S PATERNALISM PARTLY TO BLAME

    AND DESCRIBED THE OPERATIONS OF HIS COMPANY TOWN TO BE “UN-AMERICAN”. IN 1898,

    THE ILLINOIS SUPREME COURT FORCED THE PULLMAN COMPANY TO DIVEST OWNERSHIP IN THE TOWN, AS ITS COMPANY CHARTER DID NOT AUTHORIZE SUCH OPERATIONS, AND THE LAND WAS ANNEXED TO CHICAGO.

    ————————————————————————

    PROMOTING SOCIALISM IN AMERICA?

    At the time of his arrest, Debs was not a socialist. During his time in prison, he read the works of Karl Marx. After his release in 1895, he became the leading socialist figure in the United States. He ran for president in 1900 for the first of five times as head of the Socialist Party ticket.

    Civil as well as criminal charges were brought against the organizers of the strike and Debs in particular, and the Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision, In re Debs, that rejected Debs’ actions.

    ———————————————————————————–

    The Pullman Strike was a nationwide railroad strike in the United States on May 11, 1894. It pitted the American Railway Union (ARU) against the Pullman Company, the main railroads, and the federal government of the United States under President Grover Cleveland. The strike and boycott shut down much of the nation’s freight and passenger traffic west of Detroit, Michigan. The conflict began in Pullman, Chicago, on May 11 when nearly 4,000 factory employees of the Pullman Company began a wildcat strike in response to recent reductions in wages.

    Most factory workers who built Pullman cars lived in the “company town” of Pullman on the Southside of Chicago, Illinois. The industrialist George Pullman had designed it ostensibly as a model community. GEORGE PULLMAN HAD A DIVERSE WORK FORCE. HE WANTED TO HIRE AFRICAN-AMERICANS FOR CERTAIN JOBS AT THE COMPANY. Pullman would also hire young, single women to run his secretary for him. Pullman used ads and other campaigns to help bring work into his company.

    WHEN HIS COMPANY LAID OFF WORKERS AND LOWERED WAGES, IT DID NOT REDUCE RENTS, AND THE WORKERS CALLED FOR A STRIKE.

     AMONG THE REASONS FOR THE STRIKE WERE THE ABSENCE OF DEMOCRACY WITHIN THE TOWN OF PULLMAN AND ITS POLITICS, THE RIGID PATERNALISTIC CONTROL OF THE WORKERS BY THE COMPANY, EXCESSIVE WATER AND GAS RATES, AND A REFUSAL BY THE COMPANY TO ALLOW WORKERS TO BUY AND OWN HOUSES.

    They had not yet formed a union. Founded in 1893 by Eugene V. Debs, THE ARU WAS AN ORGANIZATION OF UNSKILLED RAILROAD WORKERS. Debs brought in ARU organizers to Pullman and signed up many of THE DISGRUNTLED FACTORY WORKERS When the Pullman Company refused recognition of the ARU or any negotiations, ARU called a strike against the factory, but it showed no sign of success.

    To win the strike, Debs decided to stop the movement of Pullman cars on railroads. The over-the-rail Pullman employees (such as conductors and porters) did not go on strike.

    Debs began the boycott on June 26, 1894. Within four days, 125,000 workers on twenty-nine railroads had “walked off” the job rather than handle Pullman cars.

    The railroads coordinated their response through the General Managers’ Association, which had been formed in 1886 and included 24 lines linked to Chicago.

    THE RAILROADS BEGAN HIRING REPLACEMENT WORKERS (STRIKEBREAKERS), WHICH INCREASED HOSTILITIES.

    MANY BLACKS WERE RECRUITED AS STRIKEBREAKERS AND CROSSED PICKET LINES, AS THEY FEARED THAT THE RACISM EXPRESSED BY THE AMERICAN RAILWAY UNION WOULD LOCK THEM OUT OF ANOTHER LABOR MARKET. THIS ADDED RACIAL TENSION TO THE UNION’S PREDICAMENT.

    ON JUNE 29, 1894, DEBS HOSTED A PEACEFUL MEETING TO RALLY SUPPORT FOR THE STRIKE FROM RAILROAD WORKERS AT BLUE ISLAND, ILLINOIS.

    Afterward, groups within the crowd became enraged and set fire to nearby buildings and derailed a locomotive. Elsewhere in the western states, sympathy strikers prevented transportation of goods by walking off the job, obstructing railroad tracks, or threatening and attacking strikebreakers.

    THIS INCREASED NATIONAL ATTENTION AND THE DEMAND FOR FEDERAL ACTION.

    DEBS AND THE ARU CALLED A MASSIVE BOYCOTT AGAINST ALL TRAINS THAT CARRIED A PULLMAN CAR. IT AFFECTED MOST RAIL LINES WEST OF DETROIT AND AT ITS PEAK INVOLVED SOME 250,000 WORKERS IN 27 STATES.

    The Railroad brotherhoods and the American Federation of Labor (AFL) opposed the boycott, and the General Managers Association of the railroads coordinated the opposition.

    ————————————————————————

    Federal intervention

    Under direction from President Grover Cleveland,

    City by city the federal forces broke the ARU efforts to shut down the national transportation system. THOUSANDS OF UNITED STATES MARSHALS AND SOME 12,000 UNITED STATES ARMY TROOPS, COMMANDED BY BRIGADIER GENERAL NELSON MILES, TOOK ACTION. President Cleveland wanted the trains moving again, based on his legal, constitutional responsibility for the mails. His lawyers argued that the boycott violated the Sherman Antitrust Act, and represented a threat to public safety.

    The arrival of the military and the subsequent deaths of workers in violence led to further outbreaks of violence. During the course of the strike, 30 strikers were killed and 57 were wounded. Property damage exceeded $80 million.

    THIRTY PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN RESPONSE TO RIOTS AND sabotage that caused $80 million in damages. The federal government obtained an injunction against the union, Debs, and the top leaders, ordering them to stop interfering with trains that carried mail cars.

    AFTER THE STRIKERS REFUSED, PRESIDENT Grover Cleveland ORDERED IN THE ARMY TO STOP THE STRIKERS FROM OBSTRUCTING THE TRAINS. VIOLENCE BROKE OUT IN MANY CITIES, AND THE STRIKE COLLAPSED.

    DEFENDED BY A TEAM INCLUDING Clarence Darrow, DEBS WAS CONVICTED OF VIOLATING A COURT ORDER AND SENTENCED TO PRISON; THE ARU DISSOLVED.

    Oops…  Labor Day on May Day socialist and anarchist  

    Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade union and labor movements grew, different groups of trade unionists chose a variety of days on which to celebrate labor. In the United States and Canada, a September holiday, called Labor or Labour Day, was first proposed in the 1880s.

    In 1882, Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed a Labor Day holiday while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union (CLU) of New York

    The date of May 1 (an ancient European holiday known as May Day) was an alternative date, celebrated then (and now) as International Workers Day, but

    President Cleveland was concerned that observance of Labor Day on May 1 would encourage Haymarket-style protests and would strengthen socialist and anarchist movements that, though distinct from one another, had rallied to commemorate the Haymarket Affair in International Workers’ Day.

    ———————————————————————————-

    The bottom line…

    Is this what they are teaching to American school kids  as common core education?

    THE 1894 FEDERAL LABOR DAY HOLIDAY Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.

    ——————————————————————————————-

    REALLY?  HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE?

    WHY WOULD ANY INFORMED AMERICAN CITIZEN CELEBRATE LABOR DAY?

    THE 1894 FEDERAL LABOR DAY HOLIDAY WAS CREATED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND CONGRESS  AS A BIPARTISAN POLITICO APPEASEMENT ATTEMPT  TO SHORE UP SUPPORT AMONG TRADE UNIONS……. PERIOD

    UPDATE: Obama Is Bringing 100 Syrian Refugees Into US EVERY DAY

    germany migrantsBarack Obama is bringing 100 Syrian refugees into the US every day. These refugees, mostly Muslim, are only put through a 3 month vetting process before they are allowed into the United States.
    Breitbart.com reported:The Obama administration has created a “resettlement surge center” which has produced a pouring of 100 Syrian refugees in the U.S. per day. The very real risk to Americans – the lack of proper vetting of these individuals by the quick processing that is being done, almost all of them reported to be Muslims.Over 100 Syrian refugees have been admitted every day in June according to the federal government’s own database from the Refugee Processing Center. More than 1,000 were admitted in May. The rate of those admitted has sky-rocketed when compared to the 3,755 accepted in fiscal year 2016.

    The Conservative Review reported these numbers, and that approximately 100-250 were admitted during the first six months of fiscal year 2016. It noted that the Associated Press reported in April that the federal government set up a “resettlement surge center” in Amman, Jordan in February. The center is now interviewing approximately 600 people a day.

    The “vetting” process, already questioned by leaders in the country, has been fast-tracked from 18-24 months to just three months. The “refugee mill” can now go through thousands of applications every month.

    The Center for Immigration Studies published concerns raised by the comments of Simon Henshaw, principal deputy assistant secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, when he certified that 12,000 applicants were interviewed in February, March, and April.

    Pres. Obama Reduces Syrian Refugee Screening Process To 3 Months

     

    Obama Syrian Refugee Screening Process

    Updated:

    To reach President Obama’s goal in bringing in at least 10,000 additional Syrian refugees to the U.S. this year the Obama administration has opened up a new resettlement center and has shortened the processing time from around 18-24 months down to just three months.

    The new refugee resettlement center located in Amman, Jordan was opened in February and will run until April 28th, 2016. The center interviews around 600 people every day. 1,000 Syrian refugees have already been resettled in the U.S. since October 2015.

    According to the regional refugee coordinator at the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Gina Kassem, Pres. Obama’s “10,000 (figure) is a floor and not a ceiling, and it is possible to increase the number.”

    Kassem also told reporters that once they receive the refugee case from the UN Refugee Agency that, “we do not have exclusions or look for families with certain education background, language skills or other socio-economic factors, and we do not cut family sizes.”

    After the Paris and Brussels terrorist attacks many are concerned that ISIS agents may pose as refugees as a way to enter the U.S. Last year FBI Director, James Comey, expressed concern that the U.S. does not have the ability to thoroughly screen the Syrian refugees for terrorist ties even through the lengthy 18-24-month process.

    The Administration has yet to comment on how a vetting process that took on average 18-24 months could be condensed into a three-month period.

    REMEMBER WHEN SCHOOL WAS ALL ABOUT READING, WRITING, AND ARITHMETIC?

    NOT ANYMORE.

    Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, Washington state will teach elementary school students about “gender identity” and “gender expression.”

    In the “Sexual Health” portion of the “Washington State K-12 Learning Standards” packet, teachers are given guidelines for each grade.

     Under a section labeled “Self-Identity,”each grade is to learn the following:

    KINDERGARTEN

    “Understand there are many ways to express gender.“

    FIRST GRADE

    “Explain that there are many ways to express gender.”

    SECOND GRADE

    “Understand there is a range of gender roles and expression,” and “Understand importance of treating others with respect regarding gender expression.”

    THIRD GRADE

    “Explain that gender roles can vary considerably,” and “Understand importance of treating others with respect regarding gender identity.”

    FOURTH GRADE

    “Identify how friends and family can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression,” and “Define sexual orientation.”

    FIFTH GRADE

    “Describe how media, society, and culture can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression,” and “Identify trusted adults to ask questions about gender identity and sexual orientation.”

    In the “Health Education Glossary,” “biological sex” is defined as:

    “Based on chromosomes, hormones, and internal and external anatomy.”

    While “GENDER” IS DEFINED AS:

    “A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT BASED ON EMOTIONAL, BEHAVIORAL, AND CULTURAL CHARACTERISTICS ATTACHED TO A PERSON’S BIOLOGICAL SEX.”

    FURTHER, GENDER IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE SUBCATEGORIES:

    GENDER EXPRESSION: “THE WAY SOMEONE OUTWARDLY EXPRESSES THEIR GENDER.”

    GENDER IDENTITY: “SOMEONE’S INNER SENSE OF THEIR GENDER.”

    GENDER ROLES: “SOCIAL EXPECTATIONS ABOUT HOW PEOPLE SHOULD ACT, THINK, OR FEEL BASED ON THEIR ASSIGNED BIOLOGICAL SEX.”

    The Daily Caller spoke with NATHAN OLSON, A COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER FOR THE STATEWIDE OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION (OSPI). HE CLAIMED THE STANDARDS WEREN’T AN IMPOSITION OF BELIEF SYSTEMS:

    “Standards help students become familiar with concepts that education experts feel are essential for all students to know. Standards are not used to impose belief systems.”

    However, when DC asked OLSON IF STUDENTS WHO “[REJECT] THE IDEA THAT GENDER IDENTITY IS DISTINCT FROM BIOLOGICAL SEX” COULD SUFFER ACADEMICALLY,

     OLSON PIVOTED, SAYING SUCH ISSUES WOULD BE HANDLED AT A LOCAL LEVEL.

     HE THEN ADDED:

    “We don’t exactly know what a school would do if a student failed to complete an assignment because he/she opposed the materials being taught.”

     INDEED, Some knowledge is too heavy for children.

    (I found this quotation online)

    “And so seated next to my father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, “Father, what is sexsin?”
    He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my surprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case off the floor and set it on the floor.
    Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?” he said.
    I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.
    It’s too heavy,” I said.
    Yes,” he said, “and it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It’s the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.”

    THE POWER OF SUGGESTION?

    Suggestion is the psychological process by which one person guides the thoughts, feelings, or behavior of  another.

    NOTE: The power of suggestion must involve at least two people

    LIKE A WA STATE PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER TEACHING TRANSGENDER TO AN IMPRESSIONABLE FIVE YEAR OLD KINDERGARTNER

    Aim: to investigate whether people have self-serving attributions, and why they do it?

    —————————————————————-

    Self-Fulfilling Prophecy:

    NOTE: Self-fulfilling prophecies must involve at least two people

    Aim: to investigate whether people have self-serving attributions, and why they do it?

    Process by which one’s expectations about another person eventually lead the other person to behave in ways that confirm these expectations

    Self-Fulfilling Prophecy DefinitionSelf-fulfilling prophecy is defined as any expectation, positive or negative, about a situation or event that affects an individual behavior in such a manner that it causes that expectation to be fulfilled.

    Example of self-fulfilling prophecy

    The bottom line

    SOME KNOWLEDGE IS TOO HEAVY FOR CHILDREN. When they are older and stronger, they can bear it. It would be a pretty poor parent who would ask his kindergartner to carry such a “THINK GENDER” heavy load. For now children must trust their parents to carry it for them.”

    WA STATE PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS AND FAMILIES  MUST DEMAND THE REMOVAL OF THIS COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE “COMMON CORE PUBLIC SCHOOL, SEXUAL INDOCTRINATION PROGRAM” AT ANY AGE OR GRADE LEVEL. PERIOD.

  • Hillary’s High Crimes and Misdemeanors?

    Meaning of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”

    by Jon Roland, Constitution Society

    —————————————————-

    Posted under my right to freedom of speech

    Just asking? Just saying…

    What’s going on with the FBI criminal investigation with Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a home email server? The FBI has been quiet, but now we have learned it’s for good reason! As sources inform Fox News’ Catherine Herridge (below), Hillary Clinton is about to be in serious trouble!

     As Rep. Mike Pompeo, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News:

    “I can assure you the intelligence committee is working on determining the scope of any breaches that may have resulted from the improper handling of classified information, and the damage assessments that go with them. I think we all understand that we had classified information in channels that weren’t secure on Secretary Clinton’s homebrew server and that risk was associated with that.”

    Then, Herridge explains how her sources are focused on how “federal regulations require damage assessments after classified information is outside secure government channels, such as a personal server.”

    Therefore, if Pompeo is correct, then the FBI is focused on determining internally what classified information was mishandled… Which it clearly was, as the documents included more than 22 emails that were “top secret and above.” Once that is investigation is complete, the FBI will have no other choice but to go after Hillary Clinton.

    “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”

    Posted on April 16, 2014 3:54 pm by Pearl Rains Hewett Comment

    Meaning of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”

    by Jon Roland, Constitution Society

    ——————————————————————————————————-

    The question of impeachment turns on the meaning of the phrase in the Constitution at Art. II Sec. 4, “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”.

    I have carefully researched the origin of the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors” and its meaning to the Framers, and found that the key to understanding it is the word “high”. It does not mean “more serious”. It refers to those punishable offenses that only apply to high persons, that is, to public officials, those who, because of their official status, are under special obligations that ordinary persons are not under

    and which could not be meaningfully applied or justly punished if committed by ordinary persons.

    Under the English common law tradition, crimes were defined through a legacy of court proceedings and decisions that punished offenses not because they were prohibited by statutes, but because they offended the sense of justice of the people and the court. Whether an offense could qualify as punishable depended largely on the obligations of the offender, and the obligations of a person holding a high position meant that some actions, or inactions, could be punishable if he did them, even though they would not be if done by an ordinary person.

    Offenses of this kind survive today in the Uniform Code of Military Justice. It recognizes as punishable offenses such things as perjury of oath, refusal to obey orders, abuse of authority, dereliction of duty, failure to supervise, moral turpitude, and conduct unbecoming. These would not be offenses if committed by a civilian with no official position, but they are offenses which bear on the subject’s fitness for the duties he holds, which he is bound by oath or affirmation to perform.

    Perjury is usually defined as “lying under oath”. That is not quite right. The original meaning was “violation of one’s oath (or affirmation)”.

    The word “perjury” is usually defined today as “lying under oath about a material matter”, but that is not its original or complete meaning, which is “violation of an oath”. We can see this by consulting the original Latin from which the term comes. From An Elementary Latin Dictionary, by Charlton T. Lewis (1895), Note that the letter “j” is the letter “i” in Latin.

    periurium, i, n,, a false oath, perjury. periurus, adj., oath-breaking, false to vows, perjured. iuro, avi, atus, are, to swear, take an oath. iurator, oris, m., a swearer. iuratus, adj., sworn under oath, bound by an oath. ius, iuris, that which is binding, right, justice, duty. per, … IV. Of means or manner, through, by, by means of, … under pretense of, by the pretext of, ….

    By Art. II Sec. 1 Cl. 8, the president must swear: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” He is bound by this oath in all matters until he leaves office. No additional oath is needed to bind him to tell the truth in anything he says, as telling the truth is pursuant to all matters except perhaps those relating to national security. Any public statement is perjury if it is a lie, and not necessary to deceive an enemy.

    When a person takes an oath (or affirmation) before giving testimony, he is assuming the role of an official, that of “witness under oath”, for the duration of his testimony.

    That official position entails a special obligation to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, and in that capacity, one is punishable in a way he would not be as an ordinary person not under oath. Therefore, perjury is a high crime.

    An official such as the president does not need to take a special oath to become subject to the penalties of perjury. He took an oath, by Art. II Sec. 1 Cl. 8, to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States” and to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” to the best of his ability. While he holds that office, he is always under oath, and lying at any time constitutes perjury if it is not justified for national security.

    Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr erred in presenting in his referral only those offenses which could be “laid at the feet” of the president. He functioned like a prosecutor of an offense against criminal statutes that apply to ordinary persons and are provable by the standards of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt”. That is not to say that such offenses are not also high crimes or misdemeanors when committed by an official bound by oath. Most such offenses are. But “high crimes and misdemeanors” also includes other offenses, applicable only to a public official, for which the standard is “preponderance of evidence”. Holding a particular office of trust is not a right, but a privilege, and removal from such office is not a punishment. Disablement of the right to hold any office in the future would be a punishment, and therefore the standards of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt” would apply before that ruling could be imposed by the Senate.

    It should be noted, however, that when an offense against a statute is also a “high crime or misdemeanor”, it may be, and usually is, referred to by a different name, when considered as such. Thus, an offense like “obstruction of justice” or “subornation of perjury” may become “abuse of authority” when done by an official bound by oath. As such it would be grounds for impeachment and removal from office, but would be punishable by its statutory name once the official is out of office.

    An executive official is ultimately responsible for any failures of his subordinates and for their violations of the oath he and they took, which means violations of the Constitution and the rights of persons.

    It is not necessary to be able to prove that such failures or violations occurred AT HIS INSTIGATION OR WITH HIS KNOWLEDGE, to be able, in Starr’s words, to “lay them at the feet” of the president. It is sufficient to show, on the preponderance of evidence, that the president was aware of misconduct on the part of his subordinates, OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN, and failed to do all he could to remedy the misconduct, including termination and prosecution of the subordinates and compensation for the victims or their heirs.

    The president’s subordinates include everyone in the executive branch, and their agents and contractors. It is not limited to those over whom he has direct supervision. He is not protected by “PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY”. He is legally responsible for everything that everyone in the executive branch is doing.

     

    Therefore, the appropriate subject matter for an impeachment and removal proceeding is the full range of offenses against the Constitution and against the rights of persons committed by subordinate officials and their agents which have not been adequately investigated or remedied.

    The massacre at Waco, the assault at Ruby Ridge, and many, many other illegal or excessive assaults by federal agents, and the failure of the president to take action against the offenders, is more than enough to justify impeachment and removal from office on grounds of dereliction of duty.

    To these we could add the many suspicious incidents that indicate covered up crimes by federal agents, including the suspicious deaths of persons suspected of being knowledgeable of wrongdoing by the president or others in the executive branch, or its contractors.

    The impeachment and removal process should be a debate on the entire field of proven and suspected misconduct by federal officials and agents under this president, and if judged to have been excessive by reasonable standards, to be grounds for removal, even if direct complicity cannot be shown.

    FEMA’S  $24 BILLION DOLLAR DEBT

    BASED ON THE DOCUMENTED  HISTORY OF FEMA

    APRIL 1, 1979 – APRIL 18, 2016

    FEMA manages the National Flood Insurance Program.

    OTHER PROGRAMS Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) PREVIOUSLY ADMINISTERED HAVE SINCE BEEN INTERNALIZED OR SHIFTED UNDER DIRECT DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY CONTROL.

    AFTER FEMA’S CREATION THROUGH REORGANIZATION AND EXECUTIVE ORDERS, CONGRESS CONTINUED TO EXPAND FEMA’S AUTHORITY BY ASSIGNING RESPONSIBILITIES TO IT.

    CONGRESS FUNDED the Federal Emergency Management Agency THROUGH A COMBINATION OF REGULAR APPROPRIATIONS AND EMERGENCY FUNDING IN RESPONSE TO EVENTS

    CONGRESSIONAL FUNDED THE  $24 BILLION DOLLAR FEMA FINANCIAL DISASTER THROUGH A COMBINATION OF REGULAR APPROPRIATIONS AND EMERGENCY FUNDING IN RESPONSE TO EVENTS

     AND LEFT FEMA WITH A $24 BILLION DEBT, to trickle down to property owners, using the National Flood Insurance Program.

    ———————————————————————————–

    FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency as an independent agency (1979–2003)

    FEMA WAS ESTABLISHED UNDER THE 1978 REORGANIZATION PLAN NO. 3, AND ACTIVATED APRIL 1, 1979, BY PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER IN HIS EXECUTIVE ORDER 12127.

    In July, Carter signed Executive Order 12148 shifting disaster relief efforts to the new federal-level agency. Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA absorbed the Federal Insurance Administration, the National Fire Prevention and Control Administration, the National Weather Service Community Preparedness Program, the Federal Preparedness Agency of the General Services Administration and the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration activities from HUD.

    FEMA WAS ALSO GIVEN THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OVERSEEING THE NATION’S CIVIL DEFENSE, A FUNCTION WHICH HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN PERFORMED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE’S DEFENSE CIVIL PREPAREDNESS AGENCY.

    In 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed James Lee Witt as FEMA Director.

    In 1996, the agency was elevated to cabinet rank. This was not continued by President George W. Bush. Witt initiated reforms that would help to streamline the disaster recovery and mitigation process.

    The end of the Cold War also allowed the agency’s resources to be turned away from civil defense to natural disaster preparedness.

    After Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA’s creation through reorganization and executive orders, Congress continued to expand Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA’s authority by assigning responsibilities to it.

    THOSE RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE DAM SAFETY UNDER THE NATIONAL DAM SAFETY PROGRAM ACT …….

    IN ADDITION, FEMA RECEIVED AUTHORITY FOR COUNTER TERRORISM THROUGH THE NUNN-LUGAR-DOMENICI AMENDMENT

     UNDER THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION ACT OF 1996,

    WHICH WAS A RESPONSE TO THE RECOGNIZED VULNERABILITIES OF THE U.S. AFTER THE SARIN GAS ATTACK ON THE TOKYO SUBWAY IN 1995.

    CONGRESS FUNDED FEMA THROUGH A COMBINATION OF REGULAR APPROPRIATIONS AND EMERGENCY FUNDING IN RESPONSE TO EVENTS

    FEMA under Department of Homeland Security (2003–present)

    President George W. Bush signs the Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2004

    Following the September 11, 2001, attacks,

    Congress passed the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which created the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to better coordinate among the different federal agencies that deal with law enforcement, disaster preparedness and recovery,

    BORDER PROTECTION

     and civil defense.

     Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA was absorbed into DHS effective March 1, 2003. As a result, FEMA became part of the Emergency Preparedness and Response Directorate of Department of Homeland Security,

    Additionally, upon incorporation into Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA was legally dissolved and a new Emergency Preparedness and Response Directorate was established in DHS to replace it.

    Following enactment of the Post Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006

    FEMA WAS REESTABLISHED AS AN ENTITY WITHIN DHS, ON MARCH 31, 2007.

    EMPLOYING MORE THAN 2,600 FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES.

    IT BECAME THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY AGAIN ON MARCH 31, 2007, but remained in DHS.

    President Bush appointed Michael D. Brown as FEMA’s director in January 2003.

    BROWN WARNED IN SEPTEMBER 2003

     THAT FEMA’S ABSORPTION INTO DHS WOULD MAKE A MOCKERY OF FEMA’S NEW MOTTO, “A NATION PREPARED”, AND WOULD “FUNDAMENTALLY SEVER FEMA FROM ITS CORE FUNCTIONS”, “SHATTER AGENCY MORALE” AND “BREAK LONGSTANDING, EFFECTIVE AND TESTED RELATIONSHIPS WITH STATES AND FIRST RESPONDER STAKEHOLDERS”.

    THE INEVITABLE RESULT OF THE REORGANIZATION OF 2003, WARNED BROWN, WOULD BE “AN INEFFECTIVE AND UNCOORDINATED RESPONSE” TO A TERRORIST ATTACK OR A NATURAL DISASTER.

    APR 4, 2016

     THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY FEMA HAS A  $24 BILLION DOLLAR DEBT

    CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE….. CONGRESS FUNDED AND EXPANDED  FEMA THROUGH A COMBINATION OF REGULAR APPROPRIATIONS AND EMERGENCY FUNDING IN RESPONSE TO EVENTS

    ————————————————————————————

    Hurricane Katrina in 2005 demonstrated that the vision of further unification of functions and another reorganization could not address the problems FEMA had previously faced. The “Final Report of the Select Bipartisan Committee to Investigate the Preparation for and Response to Hurricane Katrina”, released February 15, 2006, by the U.S. Government Printing Office, revealed that federal funding to states for “all hazards” disaster preparedness needs was not awarded unless the local agencies made the purposes for the funding a “just terrorism” function.

    Emergency management professionals testified that funds for preparedness for natural hazards was given less priority than preparations for counter terrorism measures. Testimony also expressed the opinion that the mission to mitigate vulnerability and prepare for natural hazard disasters before they occurred had been separated from disaster preparedness functions, making the nation more vulnerable to known hazards, like hurricanes.

    Organization

    During the debate of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, some called for FEMA to remain as an independent agency. Later, following the failed response to Hurricane Katrina, CRITICS CALLED FOR FEMA TO BE REMOVED FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY.

    TODAY FEMA EXISTS AS A MAJOR AGENCY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. THE ADMINISTRATOR FOR FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT REPORTS DIRECTLY TO THE Secretary of Homeland Security.

    IN MARCH 2003, FEMA JOINED 22 OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES, PROGRAMS AND OFFICES IN BECOMING THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. The new department, headed by Secretary Tom Ridge, brought a coordinated approach to national security from emergencies and disasters – both natural and man-made.

    FEMA manages the National Flood Insurance Program. Other programs FEMA previously administered have since been internalized or shifted under direct DHS control.

    FEMA is also home to the National Continuity Programs Directorate (formerly the Office of National Security Coordination). ONSC was responsible for developing, exercising, and validating agency wide continuity of operations and continuity of government plans as well as overseeing and maintaining continuity readiness including the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center. ONSC also coordinated the continuity efforts of other Federal Executive Agencies.

    FEMA began administering the Center for Domestic Preparedness in 2007.

    Letter to KBC News by Mark Johnson, 4/12/16

    “Well, if I wanted all the people out of Northern California, what would I do?”
    I’d lock up all the natural resources.  I would remove all the infrastructure… like the Klamath dams.

    I would put the people on printed money heroin…and they would get addicted to transfer payments and free government services.

    After some more time went by… I’d have the Klamath National Forest in a quasi wilderness area, I’d have the loggers gone…Get rid of the pesky diggers..the mining community. I’d go after the agriculture community…attempt to eliminate them.  I’d go up stream…get rid of the 4 dams, remove the water inventory and electrical generation for 70,000 homes.  The warm nutrient rich waters from above the dams would not be cleaned by the dreaded green algae.  The nutrient rich without the dams…the water would be warmer down stream, the O2 level less…and the fish kill cycles greater, and deeper.

    Then I’d go to the Klamath Basin…and slowly, surely…eliminate the federal water projects, the potato farmers, the alfalfa farmers,

    I’d make it all a big wetlands area like before the white man.

    Then as a government… I’d be broke…my govt printed money would have no purchasing power. My debt would be so great that I would have to print money to pay the debt which equals inflation.

    The people I tricked with BIA and O and C transfer payments would have no means of support, no raw materials….and no land for wealth creation.

    Those rural people would have to migrate to the cities, or they would have to die early…. like the Native American does on the reservation system.

    U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

    It’s not really politics so much as it is Math.

    Take out enough infrastructure…get a welfare govt like the one we have in the US now……. then you can share with Venzuela:

    Someone else’s choice = your sacrifice
    Posted on the www.klamathbasincrisis.org / KBC News Discussion Forum by Finnious T Fogbottom Tue April 12, 2016
    Over the past 25 years over 800 dams of various sizes have been destroyed in our nation alone. That is a bit scary since one of the big differences between first and third world countries is found in the existence or absence of fully functioning dams. The politically correct World Bank had been busily financing the construction of Third World dams by the way, until there arose too much pressure from their otherwise Green allies. Truly when the ethically protected usage, flow and storage of water is harnessed by and for humankind freedom can have a tendency to abound, when combined with free markets that is. With the availability of resources as such there also comes great opportunity for individual advancement in terms of education, employment, wealth, strength, vitality, health and the pursuit of happiness. That also leads directly to the enhancement of the general fitness, financial soundness, global relevance, unity, security and wellbeing of a nation, from the bottom up.

    On the other hand if a certain sort would like to subversively take control of a nation an obvious place to begin would be to gain despotic, destructive and disruptive control over its waters. Because with that also comes authority over many other things that we can’t live without like food, wealth, jobs, electricity etc. It hasn’t gone without notice that over recent decades there have been many an alarming attempt and success in the movement to drain our citizenry and nation of its wealth, rights, freedom, future, confidence, trust of government, unadulterated history and might. Simultaneously a form of top down centralized constituency free governance has been worming its way into the political landscape of our nation and even the world.

    So, what if there really were dedicated and well funded operations in existence which work tirelessly to undermine capitalism, and with that reshape the balance of local, regional, national and global power? What if their preferred and nearly perfected disruptive mechanism is simply the oppressive manipulation of water, species, rights, equality issues, sea and land policy? What if all of this was falling into place through Marxist inspired radical political correctness and environmentalism, empowered by the tragic consensus, collaboration and support of a manipulated populace which has apocalyptically yet proudly exchanged the truth for a lie? Well, that just may be what is currently taking place near and far.

    Not too long before the seemingly treacherous and unsupported agreement to remove four Klamath River dams was signed (with blatant indifference to voter or congressional approval) it was more than a little disquieting to find out that Dan Keppen, (former head of the Klamath Water Users Association) had met with the Obama Whitehouse and United Nations associates in person to discuss water issues, water policy and resolution templates including the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) etc. That time line may be coincidental, still it is important to consider how many of the KBRA collaboration buzz words are found throughout a UN report titled MANAGING WATER UNDER UNCERTAINTY AND RISK. It is quite revealing to search out (control/F) certain words in that document. There are some words and terms with a local parallel which you will quickly recognize like: STAKEHOLDERS, SUSTAINABILITY, UNSUSTAINABLE, COLLABORATE ,WATER UNCERTAINTY, JOBS, GREEN ECONOMY, BIODIVERSITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, RESTORATION, WATER QUALITY, POLLUTION, STATUS QUO (which is probably code for locals trying to maintain their legal, economic, citizenship and constitutional rights) INEQUALITY, EQUALITY, INDIGENOUS, LOCAL, ORGANIC, ORGANIC AGRICULTURE, BIODIVERSITY, NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE GROWTH, CLIMATE CHANGE, ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT, MONITORING, FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, DISTRIBUTIONAL JUSTICE, GOVERNANCE (as opposed to representative government) and on and on. We have been thoroughly sound-bite-bitten by those same UN mantra bumper sticker slogans and terms around here since the beginning of the local collaborator’s stakeholder “settlement” process. It all seems to be frighteningly in sync as well with what is referred to as he UN’s Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals.

    I was sad but not astonished as well to see in Keppen’s Herald and News article that he was also happy about the success enjoyed by Klamath Blue Zone programs and projects. Here too rises up the nagging fear that KBZone may be just one more local manifestation of a citizen’s Marxist Manifesto. It does make you wonder for sure when the recent H & N Blue Zone article spewed this: “A community effort …these measures may look like someone coming into town and arbitrarily telling people what they can and can’t do. But he said there comes a time when a community needs to consider how an individual’s decisions impact the entire group… Sometimes, as a society, we have to ask and answer some very hard questions about what is best for all of us…Similarly, he continued, when it comes to health, sometimes we’re going to have to make difficult choices and make individual sacrifices in favor of benefiting a larger population.” It sounds like they would also like to eventually make some UN similar choices for us: choices for our improved healthy happy alternative communal sustainable future. In the end it is all about others answering questions and making choices for us – for the greater good of the greater number of course!

    Sky Lakes Medical Center (for the greater good) is NOW telling us that it is not making Blue Zones like choices for us, yet visitors can no longer buy sugared anything on the hospital premises. It is so nice that we have so many caring people running around close to where we live making “good choices” for we dummies! We dummies who don’t know good from bad, right from wrong, evil from good and on and on. A few more Soviet style consensus councils and we just may be on our way to heaven on earth, and peace and unity without God. Until things literally and predictably go to Hell.

    So, it should go without saying that there is as usual just a whole lot at stake in the upcoming elections. Especially when one considers that no truly conservative politician could ever have anything to do with the Marxist inspired, anti-republic KBRA etc., Blue Zones or the whole mess of tax and spend Citizens for Great Sounding but Eventually Self-Destructive Stuff. At their core one must fully consider the probability that whether by naivety, greed, misdirection, foolishness or malice they share the some of the political leanings as found in the bulk of our nation’s enemies past and present. It is all a receipt for disaster.

    As we discover through inquiry and questions what the candidates are all about and where their roots are fastened, we will then have a good idea of where they are coming from and where they are trying to go, or take us. In the end don’t vote for anyone who will try to get you to agree to sacrifice what you can’t afford to lose to someone who hasn’t earned it, then take you somewhere you don’t want your family, your friends, yourself, community, city, county, state or country, or world to go, let alone become!

    Oh yes, where did that $48,000,000 is misappropriated BOR funds end up? Here’s to a certain sort of upcoming indictment.

    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.
