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

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

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

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

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

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

    TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION

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

    Detailed summary of George Orwell Novel Nineteen Eighty-Four …

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

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

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

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

    There are three other Ministries:

    The Ministry of Plenty dealing with Economic Affairs

    The Ministry of Love dealing with law and torture

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    ———————————————————-

    August 01, 2017 What ARAMARK did  with J-1 Visa Holders at Lake Quinault Lodge was just the tip of the iceberg. 16 JOBS TAKEN FROM OUR DEPRESSED LOCAL COMMUNITY WHERE FEW ARE WORKING.

    Same day,  QUESTIONING, What ARAMARK has done with J-1 Visa Holders at Lake Crescent Lodge?

    ——————————————————————————

    August 9, 2017 QUESTIONING EVERYTHING ARAMARK

     I stopped at the at the ONP Fairholme Store, Fairholme Campground … What has ARAMARK done  with J-1 Visa holders, at the fairly large ONP campground, ideally situated near the water and with direct access to Lake Crescent, an Olympic National Park Service?

    This is what happened about 12 noon on Wed August 9, 2017.

    A kid wearing a ARAMARK tee shirt was coming out the back door of the Fairholme Store.

    I said, Excuse me, do you have a restroom?

    He said, yes but it’s out of order.

    Are there any other restrooms?

    Yes, he said, in the campground, go up there (west) and turn right.

    I said, And pay $30.00 just to go to the bathroom?

    No, he said, you can just sneak in…..

    ———————————————————

    Really, I’LL just sneak into an ONP CAMPGROUND, in my car with  SIX TRUMP BUMPER STICKERS? (and not get a ticket?)

    ———————————————————–

    That did it… I asked, are you an American Citizen?

    He said YES.

    I mentioned foreign visa workers, Lake Quinault Lodge hired 16 of them?

    He said Do you mean J-1 Visa workers (So, I finally know what they are), what’s wrong with that?

    Wrong? I said, American citizens need work.

    He said, I never thought of that…

    I asked how many of them are there?

    The very nice kid said, OH,THERE ARE LOTS OF THEM.

    —————————————————————————-

    So, what can I DOCUMENT?

    The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program was created in 1961 as part of THE FULBRIGHT-HAYES ACT

    AND,  FOR OTHER PURPOSES 1961-1971-2017?

    THERE ARE 15 CATEGORIES OF THE J-1 VISA, OF WHICH CULTURAL VISTAS IS A DESIGNATED PROGRAM SPONSOR FOR THREE: INTERN, TEACHER, AND TRAINEE EXCHANGES.

    CULTURAL VISTAS ALSO HOLDS SPECIAL DESIGNATIONS THROUGH WHICH IT SPONSORS INDIVIDUALS PARTICIPATING IN THE IAESTE program AND THE Work, English Study, Travel (WEST) program. MOREOVER, IN 2015, CULTURAL VISTAS WAS AMONG SELECT ORGANIZATIONS TO BE DESIGNATED AS A SPONSOR OF THE NEW U.S.-Mexico Internship Exchange Program

    ———————————————————————————

    THE FULBRIGHT-HAYES ACT?

    THE ACT’S TITLE WAS DISARMINGLY SIMPLE: “…to amend the Surplus Property Act of 1944 to designate the Department of State as the disposal agency for surplus property outside the United States, its Territories and possessions, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.”

    The “OTHER PURPOSES” consisted of an ingenious marriage of necessity and IDEALISM. THERE WAS THE NECESSITY OF DIVESTING OURSELVES BY THE SALE ABROAD OF SURPLUS WAR PROPERTIES FOR NONCONVERTIBLE CURRENCIES RATHER THAN SCARCE DOLLARS.

    THE IDEALISM involved using a portion of the proceeds to enable Americans to learn and understand more about other countries, and the citizens of those countries to learn and understand more about us.

    An early history of the Fulbright Program,

    EXCERPTED FROM CAREER SENIOR FOREIGN SERVICE ( SES) OFFICER DONALD B. COOK’S HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM,

    written for the 1971 J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board’s annual report,

    The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program was created in 1961 as part of the Fulbright-Hayes Act, a public law written to “INCREASE MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE PEOPLE OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES THROUGH EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL EXCHANGES.” The U.S. Department of State has authority over the J-1 program.

    Under the Fulbright-Hays Act, the exchanges under the supervision of the Fulbright Scholarship Board were further extended geographically. BY 1971, THERE WAS SOME FORM OF ACADEMIC EXCHANGE WITH 100 COUNTRIES. Today, Fulbright operates in over 155 countries in all world regions.

  • Do WA State Legislators Have a Problem?

    The experts say, those who have a PROBLEM and those who are JUST DISTRACTED  requires real expertise.

    Does Governor Jay Inslee (D) have a problem?

    Do WA State Legislators Have a Problem?

    This problem,  requires real expertise? 

    So, I’m  asking informed voters to decide,

    If  Governor Jay Inslee (D) and the WA State Legislators have a problem?

    THESE ARE  “SYMPTOMS OF A PROBLEM vs. JUST DISTRACTED

    ——————————————————-

    1.LACK OF FOCUS

    Possibly the most telltale sign , “LACK OF FOCUS” goes beyond trouble paying attention. It means being easily distracted, finding it hard to listen to others in a conversation, overlooking details, and NOT COMPLETING TASKS OR PROJECTS.

    ———————————————————

    GET THE FACTS

    ————————————————————————————–

    What’s the problem?  I’m just asking you decide

    GET THE FACTS

    June 2017 In what has become THE NEW NORMAL, Washington state lawmakers are expected to go into a third special sessions … In 2013, it took 156 days and three special sessions. …

    2nd Special Session ends, 3rd starts with Inslee vowing to veto “stop …

    Jun 21, 2017 – Second special session ended and a third one started Wednesday as … time in state history a Legislature failed to pass a two-year budget before … state’s public school system mandated by the Washington Supreme Court.

    2. HYPERFOCUS

    While people with this problem are often easily distractible, they may also have something called hyperfocus. A person can get so engrossed in something that they can become unaware of anything else around them. This kind of focus makes it easier to LOSE TRACK OF TIME and ignore those around you.

    ————————————————————————————–

    I’m just asking you decide

    So Distracted, so unaware of  anything else around them, more than 1 million kids in our public school system, that they failed to provide funding basic education for seven years?

    So, Distracted, so unaware, losing track of time on  the $100,000.00 dollar a day fine,

    Until the fines reached $96,000.000.00 million dollars?  for failing to fund BASIC public education since JUNE 28, 2011?

    I’m just asking you decide

    Hyper-focused and so engrossed in something?

    Unaware of anything else around them and ignore those around you?

    ———————————————-

    3. DISORGANIZATION

    Life can seem chaotic for everyone at times, but someone with ADHD typically has a more hectic life experience on a regular basis. This can make it difficult to keep everything in its right place. an adult with this problem, may struggle with these ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS. this can include problems keeping track of tasks and TROUBLE PRIORITIZING THEM IN A LOGICAL MANNER.

    —————————————————————–

    4.TIME MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS

    This issue goes hand-in-hand with DISORGANIZATION. Adults with with this problem often have trouble using their time effectively. THEY MAY PROCRASTINATE ON IMPORTANT TASKS, show up late for important events, or ignore assignments they consider boring. They may have trouble focusing on the future or the past — the “now” is often more top-of-mind for them.

    ——————————————————-

    5. FORGETFULNESS

    It’s human to forget things occasionally, but for someone with this problem,forgetfulness is a part of everyday life. This can include routinely forgetting where you’ve put something or what important dates you need to keep.

    Sometimes forgetfulness can be annoying but unimportant; other times,

    FORGETFULNESS IN ADULTS CAN BE SERIOUS.

    THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT FORGETFULNESS CAN BE DAMAGING TO CAREERS BECAUSE IT CAN BE CONFUSED WITH CARELESSNESS OR LACK OF INTELLIGENCE.

    ————————————————————————————

    GET THE FACTS?

    May 10, 2015 – Washington Supreme Court Holds Legislature in Contempt?

    Washington State Supreme Court called it   a Legislature problem contempt, unconstitutional  unstable and unfair:

    Relying on local levies or federal funding is unconstitutional because it is unstable and

    unfair: The fact that local levy funds have been at least in part supporting the basic

    education program is inescapable…..Reliance on levy funding to finance

    basic education was unconstitutional 30 years ago….and it is unconstitutional now (p.68)

    ———————————————————————————

    Use Poetic license, the freedom to depart from the facts of a matter writing in order to create an effect.

    THIS PROBLEM IS VERY COMMON MORE THAN 3 MILLION CASES IN THE US PER YEAR

    However, this is written  about this problem on line.

    What’s next?

    EFFECTIVE July 23, 2017 WA STATE NEW DISTRACTED DRIVING LAW

    HEFTY FINE of $99.00  for DISTRACTIONS that interfere with safe driving such as grooming, smoking, eating or reading is prohibited and can result in a if you are pulled over for another traffic offense

    HEFTY FINES? Using a handheld device while driving is considered a primary

    DISTRACTION offense under the new law. The first ticket for a DISTRACTED driving offense will cost at least $136.00 dollars.  A second ticket within five years WILL COST AT LEAST $234.00.

    Distracted driving violations can now be reported to insurance companies to use for rating and underwriting purposes. (and threats)

    HEFTY! HEFTY! HEFTY!  FINE  $96,000,000.00 MILLION ACCUMULATED.

    Do WA State Legislators have a problem?

    Does WA State Governor Jay Inslee (D) have a problem?

    OR? ARE THEY JUST DISTRACTED?

    I’m just asking you decide

    ——————————————————–

    ATTENTION DEFICIT OF DISTRACTED DRIVERS (ADDD)?

    New WA distracted driving law starts July 23 – what drivers need …

    www.nbcrightnow.com/…/new-wa-distracted-driving-law-starts-july-23-what-drivers-need to know…

    Hyperfocused? Gov. Jay Inslee (D) vetoed the section that gave drivers until 2019 to acclimate to the changes and instead declared Sunday, July 23, 2017 as the law’s effective date.

    That’s when distracted driving behaviors ranging from eating while driving to answering a text at a stoplight could land drivers a hefty fine.

    Hyperfocused? Gov. Jay Inslee (D)  accelerated the – New WA distracted driving laws  start date to July 23, 2017

    ———————————————————————–

    THE EXPERTS SAY, TREATMENT CAN HELP, BUT THIS CONDITION CAN’T BE CURED

     I’m just asking you decide

    Which term is used to describe a new and secondary or additional problem that arises after the original PROBLEM  has been established?

    COMPLICATIONS…..

    JULY 19, 2017 these distracted legislators problems, violations and hefty fines can now be reported to  VOTERS to use for rating and underwriting purposes.

    This problem can be cured by informed voters, at every level of government.

    Donald J. Trump is President of the United States of America

    ————————————————

    The bottom line……

    To elected members at all levels of  the American government,

    LACK OF FOCUS, HYPER-FOCUS, DISORGANIZATION, TIME MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS AND FORGETFULNESS

    CAN BE DAMAGING TO CAREERS BECAUSE IT CAN BE CONFUSED WITH CARELESSNESS OR LACK OF INTELLIGENCE.


  • June 20, 2017 Clallam County SMP Update

    My public comment

    Vested Clallam County Citizens have been fearful of how the SMP Update will affect their private property use since Jan 26, 2011.

    INDEED, THIS IS NOT ABOUT PROTECTING SHORE LANDS, WETLANDS, ANIMALS OR RIVERS. THIS IS ABOUT CONTROLLING PEOPLE AND THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY.  I WISH PEOPLE WOULD WAKE UP TO WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY, STATE AND COUNTY  WITH REGARDS TO CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CONTROLLING LAND AND IMPOSING HEAVY REGULATIONS ON ALL PRIVATE PROPERTY.

    I received a phone call from a concerned (fearful) Clallam County citizen last night.

    “Pearl, have you read the new SMP Update Draft? Do you know how Steve Grey and (ESA Consultant) Margaret Clancy have changed it? Do you know what’s in it?”

    We talked for over an hour. My understanding of the most outrageous concerns.

    There shall be 200 foot setbacks based on a concocted 100 year plan?  Clallam County SMP Update Requirements prior to any permitted use of private shoreline property shall include, but not limited to,  up to $20,000.00 in …….

    Geotechnical Engineering

    www.whatisgeotech.org/

    IT INCLUDES, WITHOUT BEING LIMITED TO, the analysis, design and construction of foundations, slopes, retaining structures, embankments, roadways, tunnels, levees, wharves, landfills and other systems that are made of or are supported by soil or rock. Geotechnical Societies by Country.

    ———————————————————-

    The concerned citizen said, Pearl, what are you going to do about this? You have private shoreline property that will be seriously affected.

    IN CLALLAM COUNTY WA, THERE ARE 3300 VESTED SHORELINE PRIVATE PROPERTY  OWNERS THAT SHALL BE SERIOUSLY AFFECTED BY THE OUTRAGEOUS RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY SMP UPDATE, I AM JUST ONE OF THEM.

    THE REAL QUESTION IS WHAT ARE OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

    THEY HAVE VOTERS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THOSE AFFECTED BY THE SMP UPDATE, THAT FEEL VIOLATED BY THE RESTRICTED USE OF THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY IN CLALLAM COUNTY.

    ———————————————————————–

    INDEED, BUT EVEN MORE TO THE POINT, what business does the government have telling a man whether or not he can plow or not on his own land?  This is not about wetlands and animals or rivers.  This is about controlling people and their property.  I wish people would wake up to what is taking place in this country with regards to central government controlling land and imposing heavy regulations on private property.

    Farmer Faces $2.8 Million Fine for… Plowing His Field! – Freedom …

    freedomoutpost.com/farmer-faces-2-8-million-fine-for-plowing-his-field/

    May 26, 2017 – A California farmer is facing $2.8 million in fines for plowing his field and planting wheat without a permit. John Duarte of Duarte Nursery is …

    Tim BrownMay 26, 2017

    A California farmer is facing $2.8 million in fines for plowing his field and planting wheat without a permit.

    John Duarte of Duarte Nursery is David going up against Goliath, just like ranchers, farmers and natural health product makers.  His case could set a dangerous precedent that would require farmers to obtain expensive and time-consuming permits from the US Army of Corps Engineers before planting crops.

    “The case is the first time that we’re aware of that says you need to get a (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) permit to plow to grow crops,” said Anthony Francois, a lawyer for the Pacific Legal Foundation. “We’re not going to produce much food under those kinds of regulations.”

    However, U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller sided with the Army Corps last June, in which the US Attorney’s Office is asking for $2.8 million in civil penalties.

    Why?  Who was harmed?  What real and actual crime took place?

    USA Today has the background of the story that began in 2012 when Mr. Duarte planted wheat on land that he bought with his own money, some 450 acres.

    Because the property has numerous swales and wetlands, Duarte hired a consulting firm to map out areas on the property that were not to be plowed because they were part of the drainage for Coyote and Oat creeks and were considered “waters of the United States.”

    Francois conceded that some of the wetlands were plowed but not significantly damaged. He said the ground was plowed to a depth of 4 to 7 inches.

    The Army Corps did not claim Duarte violated the Endangered Species Act by destroying fairy shrimp or their habitat, Francois said.

    This particular freshwater species is unique to California and southern Oregon and has been classified as a threatened species since 1994 because much of its wetlands in California’s Central Valley were converted to cropland or became urban.

    Duarte’s wheat was planted but not harvested because in February 2013 the Army Corps of Engineers and the California Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board issued orders to stop work at the site. The agencies claimed Duarte had violated the Clean Water Act by not obtaining a permit to discharge dredged or fill material into seasonal wetlands considered waters of the United States.

    Duarte sued the Army Corps and the state, alleging they violated his constitutional right of due process by issuing the cease and desist orders without a hearing. The U.S. Attorney’s Office counter-sued Duarte Nursery tto enforce the Clean Water Act violation.

    Farmers plowing their fields are specifically exempt from the Clean Water Act rules forbidding discharging material into U.S. waters, Francois said.

    The government claims that Duarte did not plow but rather used a ripper, which dug 10 inches into the soil and they allege that it disturbed portions of the property that included wetland areas.

    “Even under the farming exemption, a discharge of dredged or fill material incidental to the farming activities that impairs the flow of the waters of the United States still requires a permit because it changes the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters,” the U.S. attorney said in court filings.

    Francois claims the penalties are unfair because his client believed the plowing exemption allowed him to till the soil.

    “A plain reading of the rules says you don’t need a permit to do what he did,” Francois said. “How do you impose a multimillion penalty on someone for thinking the law says what it says?”

    Indeed, but even more to the point, what business does the government have telling a man whether or not he can plow or not on his own land?  This is not about wetlands and animals or rivers.  This is about controlling people and their property.  I wish people would wake up to what is taking place in this country with regards to central government controlling land and imposing heavy regulations on private property.

    WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

    Just saying, To Local Elected Representatives..

    Changes are taking place in WA DC.

    Don’t lock yourself up by imposing restricted use on Private Property that you can’t defend and uphold in a court of law.

    Montana Disabled Veteran Convicted Over Stock Pond – Redoubt News

    https://redoubtnews.com › DOJ

    May 13, 2016 – Montana Disabled Veteran Convicted Over Stock Pond, Joseph Robertson, Kagel Environmental, Clean Water Act, Andy Johnson, EPA.

    As EPA Armendariz said, “We make an example of them”.

    “Today’s guilty verdict demonstrates that polluters will be held accountable for their actions.” said Jeffrey Martinez, Special Agent in Charge of EPA’s criminal enforcement program in MONTANA

    “This verdict sends a message that the United States will not stand by and allow streams and wetlands of the United States to be polluted, or National Forest lands to be injured,” said United States Attorney for the District of MONTANA Mike Cotter.

    Now, six months into an 18-month sentence to federal prison, in addition to tens of thousands of dollars in fines, Joe continues to suffer from declining health, confusion, and depression. He reportedly had two strokes in his first month of lock up. He was ripped from his VA medical treatment, transferred to numerous prisons over the west, thrown in solitary confinement, stripped of his veteran’s pension, unlawfully deprived of his right to be present when sensitive legal mail from his lawyer was opened, and barred from having visits from family and friends.

    May 13, 2016  who’s in charge of the EPA in MONTANA ?

    Zinki  from MONTANA  is in charge of the DOI

    “This verdict sends a message that the United States will not stand by and allow streams and wetlands of the United States to be polluted, or National Forest lands to be injured,”

  • This is Not an EPA Matter?

    This is Not an EPA Matter?

    SO? IS THIS JUST AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM  LOOKING FOR A RESPONSIBLE PARTY?

    Documented for the record

    May 15, 2017 3:00 PM, I called and spoke with Bobbie at the Seattle office of the EPA 1-800-424-4372

    I warned EPA Bobbie of the eminent danger of a environmental disaster that will be caused when a house located the end of NE Buchanan Dr, in Clallam County WA, falls over the cliff onto our Rains Sr. Trust shoreline property and directly into the Straits of Juan De Fuca,  designated  waters of statewide significance.

    EPA Bobbie said, it was a unique problem, took my name and phone number and promised to return my call within an hour.

    EPA Bobbie returned my call, she called this number 1-360-4450, and said someone (no name) would call me.

    EPA Bobbie said, a direct quote  “THIS IS NOT AN EPA MATTER”  and that she had spent an hour of her time trying to help ME.

    I called the number, (no name) Jordan is  an employee of Jefferson County. Obviously, we agreed she CAN NOT help me with a Clallam County WA, ENVIRONMENTAL MATTER.

    IS THIS JUST AN EPA MATTER  LOOKING FOR AN EPA RESPONSIBLE PARTY SOLUTION?

    The solution is easy, tear down the house before it falls over the cliff.

    This is not a trick question….

     If nobody, takes action, when the house falls into Straits of Juan De Fuca  and an environmental disaster becomes a reality, who will be the responsible party?

    Will Clallam County Commissioners, the DCD,  be held responsible? Will Clallam County hard working citizens foot the bill to clean up the environmental mess?

     Will cleaning up the crushed pieces of the house after it falls over the 200 ft  cliff be an EPA  water cleanup recovery in the Straits of Juan De Fuca? (paid for by Clallam County WA taxpayers?)

    Documented for the record

    The EPA has been put on notice and warned about this ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM, as have, WA DC Rep Kilmer, WA State Reps in Olympia, Clallam County Commissioners and the director of DCD, and as usual to my email list.

     note:  this email warning has been sent to my WA State Rep Derek Kilmer via his “email me”
