    Obscene, Indecent and Profane Broadcasts Guide.

    Federal law prohibits obscene, indecent and profane content from being broadcast on the radio or TV.  That may seem clear enough, but determining what obscene, indecent and profane mean can be difficult, depending on who you talk to.

    In the Supreme Court’s 1964 landmark case on obscenity and pornography, Justice Stewart Potter famously wrote: “I know it when I see it.”  That case still influences FCC rules today, and complaints from the public about broadcasting objectionable content drive the enforcement of those rules.

    In other words, if you “know it when you see it” and find it objectionable, you can tell the FCC and ask us to check into it.

    Deciding what’s obscene, indecent or profane

    Each type of content has a distinct definition:

    Obscene content does not have protection by the First Amendment.  For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the Supreme Court: It must appeal to an average person’s prurient interest; depict or describe sexual conduct in a “patently offensive” way; and, taken as a whole, lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

    Indecent content portrays sexual or excretory organs or activities in a way that does not meet the three-prong test for obscenity.

    PROFANE, content includes “grossly offensive” language that is considered a public nuisance.

    Factors in determining how FCC rules apply include the specific nature of the content, the time of day it was broadcast and the context in which the broadcast took place.

    Broadcasting obscene content is prohibited by law at all times of the day. Indecent and PROFANE, content are prohibited on broadcast TV and radio between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., when there is a reasonable risk that children may be in the audience.

    What about cable, satellite TV and satellite radio?

    Because obscenity is not protected by the First Amendment, it is prohibited on cable, satellite and broadcast TV and radio.  However, the same rules for indecency and profanity do not apply to cable, satellite TV and satellite radio because they are subscription services.

    ENFORCING THE RULES

    Enforcement of the obscenity, indecency and profanity rules usually begins with complaints from the public that FCC staff review for possible violations. If an investigation is warranted and the FCC finds a station in violation of its rules, it has the authority to revoke a station license, impose a fine or issue a warning.

    What information should I include in an obscenity, indecency or profanity complaint with the FCC?

    When filing a complaint, please include the following information:

    • Date and time of the broadcast.
    • The call sign, channel and/or frequency of the station.
    • Details of what was actually said or depicted during the broadcast.

    Detailed complaints are helpful for analyzing the context of offensive language, images or scenes and determining possible rule violations. It is also helpful (but not a requirement) to include a recording or transcript of a broadcast when possible, though any documentation you provide becomes part of the FCC’s records and may not be returned.

    THE FCC AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH

    Full unedited text….

    FCC and Freedom of Speech Guide (pdf)

    The Federal Communications Commission receives numerous complaints that television and/or radio networks, stations or their employees or guests have broadcast extreme, incorrect or somehow improper political, economic or social statements.

    In some cases, the complaints allege that certain broadcast statements may endanger the United States or its people, or threaten our form of government, our economic system or established institutions like family or marriage. They say these statements are “un-American” and an abuse of freedom of speech. The FCC also receives complaints that some broadcast statements criticize, ridicule, “stereotype” or demean individuals or groups because of the religion, race, nationality, gender or other characteristics of the group or individual.

    FINALLY, MANY CONSUMERS COMPLAIN THAT TELEVISION OR RADIO BROADCASTS ARE OBSCENE, INDECENT, PROFANE OR OTHERWISE OFFENSIVE.

    WHAT IS THE FCC’S RESPONSIBILITY?

    The FCC is barred by law from trying to prevent the broadcast of any point of view. The Communications Act prohibits the FCC from censoring broadcast material, in most cases, and from making any regulation that would interfere with freedom of speech.

    EXPRESSIONS OF VIEWS THAT “DO NOT” INVOLVE A “CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER OF SERIOUS, SUBSTANTIVE EVIL” COME UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION, WHICH GUARANTEES FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF THE PRESS AND PREVENTS SUPPRESSION OF THESE EXPRESSIONS BY THE FCC.

    According to an FCC opinion on this subject, “the public interest is best served by permitting free expression of views.” This principle ensures that the most diverse and opposing opinions will be expressed, even though some may be highly offensive.

    THE FCC, HOWEVER, DOES HAVE ENFORCEMENT RESPONSIBILITIES IN CERTAIN LIMITED INSTANCES. For example, the Courts have said that indecent material is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution AND CANNOT BE BANNED ENTIRELY.

    IT MAY BE RESTRICTED, HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO AVOID ITS BROADCAST WHEN THERE IS A REASONABLE RISK THAT CHILDREN MAY BE IN THE AUDIENCE. BETWEEN 6 A.M. AND 10 P.M. (when there is the greatest likelihood that children may be watching,) airing indecent material is prohibited by FCC rules.

    Broadcasters are required to schedule their programming accordingly or face enforcement action. Similarly, the Commission has stated that profane material is prohibited between 6 A.M. and 10 P.M.

    Finally, the courts have ruled that obscene material is not protected by the First Amendment and cannot be broadcast at any time. For more information about these rules, see our consumer guide.

    WHAT ARE THE BROADCASTERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES?

    Individual radio and television station licensees are responsible for selecting all broadcast matter and for determining how their stations can best serve their communities. Broadcast licensees are responsible for choosing both the entertainment programming and the programming concerning local issues, news, public affairs, religion, sports and other subjects to be aired by the station. They also decide how their programs, including call-in shows, will be conducted and whether or not to edit or reschedule programs or material (for example, moving a program to a time slot during which children may not be listening or watching).

    WHAT IF I HAVE A COMMENT AND/OR CONCERN ABOUT A SPECIFIC BROADCAST OR STATEMENT?

    If you consider a broadcast obscene, indecent, or PROFANE, you can file a complaint with the FCC. Factors in determining how FCC rules apply include the specific nature of the content, the time of day it was broadcast and the context in which the broadcast took place.

    Kiss Idaho Goodbye: Another Major Land Takeover

    Who else but the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) to the rescue for connectivity.  Established by the Department of Interior (DOI), it is an “international” network to advance collaborative landscape conservation.

    They would love to see this land all locked up into one major landscape of wilderness, for wildlife only.

    But the truth is, it is just the UN agenda.  As a partner to the DOI, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has been promoting connectivity for a very long time.

    Kiss Idaho Goodbye: Another Major Land Takeover

    For Idaho, not only is there the Columbia River Treaty re-negotiations that will take control of all water resources, there is also another major land take over.

    There are a multitude of Idaho non-profits and United Nations (UN) non-governmental organizations (NGO) that are aggressively pursuing connectivity projects.  Essentially the goal is to connect large swaths of land in Idaho’s east corner which neighbors Montana and Wyoming.  They would love to see this land all locked up into one major landscape of wilderness, for wildlife only.

    The  High Divide (HD), Crown of the Continent (COC), Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y), Greater Yellowstone (GY), and the land trust partnership group Heart of the Rockies Initiative (HOR), are just a few of the organizations that are destructively working to create wildlife corridors in the Island Park area.

    Each of these organizations are connected to UN NGOs such as the Nature Conservancy (NC), Wilderness Society (WS), and Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).  Don’t be fooled by the new UN addition in red, a disclaimer that unless the organization is in consultative status it does not connote affiliation with the UN.  That is flat out not true.  And like children playing in a sandbox these groups all play with each other, are interconnected, and overwhelm us with their agenda.

    Anyway, here is the map that shows how much land they are after with the Salmon Selway not even included in this discussion.  This map is proudly displayed on the WCS website, a trophy of the successful tromping of Idaho.

    Kiss Idaho Goodbye

    Quite a bit of money contributes to this takeover.  Just the Greater Yellowstone alone has over 10 million dollars in their coffersWhere do they get all that money?  Part of it is your tax dollar.

    Now your tax dollar goes to this in other ways as well.  The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) believes in creating wildlife corridors which eventually contribute to connectivity and have spent your money to study it and figure out how many wildlife are affected by collisions.  Forget how it has impacted humans.  You are even paying your governor to participate in this through the Western Governors’ Association (WGA).

    But don’t forget the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD), your state taxes are used for this nonsense as well.  Four years ago Idaho Fish & Game honored an ITD Senior Environmental Planner for his success in collectively garnering over 718,000 dollars to study (affectionately known as the Cramer study) where wolverines and bears migrate, and a study to prioritize wildlife collision areas.  Here is the 2016 report and on page 6 you can see all the recommended overpasses, underpasses, fencing, traffic calming, and driver warning systems for Highway 20 in Island Park.  What is truly remarkable about this is while our Idaho roads and bridges crumble there is plenty of money to spend on figuring out where cars collide with wildlife and put money into building a road for them.  And here is the Highway 20 priority map for those animals.  Now it makes sense why Idaho registration fees went up and why the current legislature has a huge task in front of them to fund transportation.

    Those bunnies need a safe passageway.

    Now there are many working tirelessly on this so surely it must all be coordinated together.  Who else but the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) to the rescue for connectivity.  Established by the Department of Interior (DOI), it is an “international” network to advance collaborative landscape conservation.  Here is the amount of land the GNLCC wants to take and a link to the data they have been collecting.  Remember, this is the federal government doing it, not some obscure group.  There are a multitude of participants, including multiple UN affiliates, making decisions about Idaho.

    Kiss Idaho Goodbye

    In a nutshell, the DOI created an organization that promotes these UN affiliated lunatics taking more land away from Idahoans.  Originating in 2009 with order 3289, and advancing it with order 3330, then announcing the truth to “develop opportunities to further establish partnerships that benefit Tribes and Federal agencies” in order 3342.

    The National Park Service (NPS) and US Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) were granted the privilege of administering the GNLCC in 2010.  The implementation plan includes partnerships with land protection NGOs and land trusts, Canada, IUCN, USFS, and the BLM while using the Endangered Species Act to justify its means.  Of course they are using your tax dollar to stick it to you, not only in this way but in grants as well, up to one million.

    But the truth is, it is just the UN agenda.  As a partner to the DOI, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has been promoting connectivity for a very long time.  As well, the FWS has its own comradely with the UN for migratory species protection.  According to Agenda 2030, Goal 15.5, we are assigned the task to “Take urgent and significant action to reduce the degradation of natural habitats…”.  Roadkill should certainly be a focus to ensure a natural habitat is protected in a way that it does not cause harm to the animal.  As this Agenda 2030 document explains in #33, “We are therefore determined to conserve and…protect biodiversity, ecosystems and wildlife.”  Look forward to paying for animal roads.

    The federal and state governments, as usual, are taking our money and using it against us, turning it over to UN groups for them to implement UN objectives.  Can President Trump undo all of this?  Or will it take the masses to finally stand up and say no more.  How can the tiny community of Island Park fight this off?  What are our legislators doing to stop this?  Idahoans just continue to see our state being eaten up by government with its UN partnerships.

    Kiss Idaho Goodbye.

    In an apparent “SHELL GAME” likely intended to disguise a hidden agenda and to confuse the American public, Congress is considering “BEHIND CLOSED DOORS” two versions of S.2012.

    snippet…

    It is understood that the Senate passed the Murkowski version without forestry measures in April 2016, while the U.S. House of Representatives passed a second version with both forestry and tribal forest management measures in May 2016,namely,H.R. 2647 –the Resilient Federal

    Forests Act of 2015. H.R. 2647 was sponsored by Representative Bruce Westerman (AR-R) and cosponsored by 11 Republicans and 2 Democrats. It seems H.R. 2647 was incorporated within the House version of S.2012 via an amendment adding new Title VII as part of “Division B, Titles I-X”.1 On September 8, 2016, the two versions of House/Senate S.2012 were submitted to a Congressional conference committee to be reconciled for ultimate passage by both chambers and signature into law by President Obama.

    2 days ago – Hidden provisions in congressional energy bills undermine America’s … of private property owners throughout the United States, the Western States … shared by many citizens throughout the western and rural United States.

     

    By Lawrence Kogan —— Bio and Archives September 17, 2016

    A MASSIVE 792-PAGE SENATE ENERGY COMMITTEE BILL THREATENS TO AUTHORIZE FEDERAL BUREAUCRATS TO CEDE EXTENSIVE CONTROL OVER WESTERN STATE WATER AND PROPERTY RIGHTS, ENERGY DEVELOPMENT AND FOREST MANAGEMENT TO NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES, LOCAL UN SUSTAINABILITY COUNCILS AND RADICAL ENVIRONMENTALIST GROUPS.

     CERTAIN PROVISIONS COULD UNDERMINE THE FOUNDATIONS OF OUR NATION FROM WITHIN OUR NATION.

    S.2012, the North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2016, incorporates some 393 amendments. Incredibly, it is being driven forward by U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and other members of Congress behind closed doors. Probably very few have read the bill in its entirety. Virtually none understand its likely impacts on western and other rural land, water and property rights, potentially throughout America, or on the families and communities whose lives will be upended.

    This secretive approach—with no opportunities for meaningful public examination or comment, even by those who will be most affected—is almost unprecedented. It could well become another example of “we have to pass it to find out what’s in it.” But numerous people will have to live with the consequences, while the authors and implementers walk away exempted, unscathed and unaccountable.

    The bill’s tribal government forest management provisions are extremely harmful and could severely diminish the constitutionally protected rights of private property owners throughout the United States, the Western States Constitutional Rights consortium emphasizes. Indeed, the pending legislation is itself unconstitutional, as explained in a legal memorandum the consortium sent to 13 members of Congress.

    This Montana-based nonprofit was formed to safeguard the property rights of farmers, ranchers and other land and business owners against reckless federal, state and local government laws, regulations and policies. WSCR members live on or near the Flathead Irrigation Project within the Flathead Indian Reservation, and in other parts of northwestern Montana. But their concerns are widely shared by many citizens throughout the western and rural United States. It has a long, hard road ahead on these issues.

    The apparent “shell game” is likely intended to disguise a hidden agenda and confuse people. In fact, Congress is quietly considering two versions: a Senate-passedMurkowski version without forestry measures and a House of Representatives version with both forestry and tribal forest management measures (H.R. 2647, the Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015, sponsored by Representative Bruce Westerman (R-AR) and cosponsored by 11 Republicans and 2 Democrats). Bipartisan chicanery.

    On September 8, the two versions were submitted to a conference committee, to be reconciled so that both chambers can pass a bill and President Obama can sign it into law. The problems are extensive.

    The House/Senate versions’ forestry measures embrace Euro-UN-Agenda 21 sustainable forest management principles, plus United Nations Indigenous Peoples Rights policies that would supersede the U.S. Constitution—while implementing unscientific climate change and sustainability objectives devised by the White House and “Forest Service Strategic Energy Framework.”

    Tribal Forest Management (TFM) provisions in House/Senate S.2012 are more problematic, because they would racially discriminate in favor of Native American tribes. They would do so by using the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to recognize off-reservation aboriginal pre-European land and water rights—where none exist in U.S. law—at the expense of all other Americans’ constitutionally protected private property rights. S.2012s’ TFM provisions would also:

    • Supplant states’ authority and jurisdiction over their natural resources, as recognized by the Tenth Amendment requirement that these resources be held in “public trust” for the benefit of each state’s citizens—including incredibly hard-working western ranchers who put so much food on your table.
    • Enable Native American Tribes to treat “Federal Forest Lands” (including national forests and national parks belonging to all Americans) as “Indian Forest Lands,” merely by establishing that “the Federal forest land is located within, or mostly within, a geographical area that presents a feature or involves circumstances principally relevant to that Indian tribe.” That means a tribe only has to show that the lands are covered by an Indian treaty, are part of a current or former Indian reservation, or were once adjudicated by the former Indian Claims Commission as part of a “tribal homeland.”
    • Provide Native American Tribes near U.S. national forest and park lands with federal “638” contracts to manage, oversee and control such lands and appurtenant water resources for federal regulatory and other purposes, even when they are well beyond the boundaries of Indian reservations.
    • Expand tribal political sovereignty and legal jurisdiction and control, especially over mountainous forest lands—the source of most snowpack and other waters that farmers, ranchers, and even towns and cities rely on for irrigation, drinking and other water needs.
    • Enable tribes to impose new federal fiduciary trust obligations on the U.S. government to protect their religious, cultural and spiritual rights to fish, waters and lands located beyond the boundaries of Indian reservations, by severely curtailing non-tribal members’ constitutionally protected private water and land rights, without paying “just compensation” as required by the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    A recently filed federal lawsuit by the Hoopa Valley Tribe of northern California against the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and National Marine Fisheries Service underscores the importance of this so-called federal fiduciary trust obligation. The tribe wants to compel the agencies to protect the tribe’s alleged off-reservation aboriginal pre-European water and fishing rights in southern Oregon’s Klamath River and Upper Klamath Lake—even though their reservation is more than 240 miles southwest of the lake!

    A tribal court victory would severely curtail Klamath irrigators’ ability to exercise their rights to vitally needed water. Northern California’s Yurok Tribe says it will soon file its own lawsuit. A cascade of such legal actions would disrupt or destroy the entire western water rights system.

    Combined with S.3013 (Montana Democrat Senator John Tester’s Salish and Kootenai Water Rights Settlement Act), the TFM provisions would expand and codify into federal law off-reservation aboriginal water and fishing rights that the tribes now claim. That precedent could then be used by other litigious tribes to override water and private property public trust obligations that Montana, Oregon, California and other western states owe their citizens under state constitutions. It could happen throughout America!

    S.2012 would cause even more problems if Congress adds a Wyden-Merkley Amendment that provides federal funding and implementation for the controversial Klamath Basin Agreements Tribal Rights Settlement. That would greatly expand tribal water rights, in violation of U.S. constitutional requirements that any such expansion be pursuant to Congress’s authority to approve or reject interstate compacts or regulate commerce with Indian tribes.

    It would also create a federal and interstate template for greatly diminishing regional—and potentially all irrigators’—state-based private property rights, in favor of Native American tribes. Its proponents have grossly misrepresented the settlement’s alleged benefits and substantially understated the damage it would impose on Klamath Basin residents.

    If S.2012 is enacted into law with the tribal forest management, Wyden-Merkley Amendment and Salish-Kootenai Settlement, Congress will cede control over western and rural lands and waters to Native American tribes in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Fifth, Ninth, Tenth and Fourteenth Amendments.

    This year’s presidential and congressional elections are a referendum on the role and performance of government.

    We the People must demand an end to the secrecy, shady backroom deals, and usurpation of our natural and constitutional freedoms and property rights.

    Congress’ immediate withdrawal or modification of this grotesque omnibus energy bill would be a good first step in this direction.

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

     

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Powerpoint Presentation (Supplementary Information B), which we have been using for a variety of presentations already, is in the process of being refined, and we will continue to refine it through the end of October. Also, the Monitoring Plan (Appendix E), which defines how and who will continue to track the progress of the implementation of the adaptation strategies, is in process and will be complete by end of October. And we are also working on an extra final product – a packaged up version of the Executive Summary that can be used as a standalone handout.
    We are currently in the process of giving presentations on the final results of this project to the municipalities and other organizations, and we have a few public presentations that are getting scheduled. One that is scheduled currently is a presentation to the Jefferson County Planning Commission, on November 4th. (The commission meeting starts at 6:30 pm, but the specific time slot has not yet been scheduled, you can check the agenda once it becomes available here.)

    We will let you know when the public presentations are scheduled.
    We will send you a final email by the end of October when these last pieces are complete, and to also enlist your help with helping move the identified climate adaptation strategies forward and to provide input on the status of the implementation of the adaptation strategies.

    Many thanks again for all your engaged and thoughtful participation and feedback throughout this project. It is very exciting to see this all come together, and to now have the report as a resource for the North Olympic Peninsula as we continue to work together to create a climate resilient future!

    Climate change: Obama orders steeper cuts from power plants

    Aug 2, 2015 – Yet it will be up to Obama’s successor to implement his plan, which … said the revision makes Obama’s mandate even more burdensome, costly and … “Climate change is not a problem for another generation,” Obama said in …
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Aiming to jolt the rest of the world to action, President Barack Obama moved ahead Sunday with even tougher greenhouse gas cuts on American power plants, setting up a certain confrontation in the courts with energy producers and Republican-led states.
    In finalizing the unprecedented pollution controls, Obama was installing the core of his ambitious and controversial plan to drastically reduce overall U.S. emissions, as he works to secure a legacy on fighting global warming. Yet it will be up to Obama’s successor to implement his plan, which reverberated across the 2016 presidential campaign trail.
    Opponents planned to sue immediately, and to ask the courts to block the rule temporarily. Many states have threatened not to comply.
    The Obama administration estimated the emissions limits will cost $8.4 billion annually by 2030. The actual price won’t be clear until states decide how they’ll reach their targets. But energy industry advocates said the revision makes Obama’s mandate even more burdensome, costly and difficult to achieve.
    “They are wrong,” Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy said flatly, accusing opponents of promulgating a “doomsday” scenario.
    Last year, the Obama administration proposed the first greenhouse gas limits on existing power plants in U.S. history, triggering a yearlong review and more than 4 million public comments. On Monday, Obama was to unveil the final rule publicly at an event at the White House.
    “Climate change is not a problem for another generation,” Obama said in a video posted to Facebook. “Not anymore.”
    The final version imposes stricter carbon dioxide limits on states than was previously expected: a 32 percent cut by 2030, compared to 2005 levels, the White House said. Obama’s proposed version last year called only for a 30 percent cut.
    Immediately, Obama’s plan became a point of controversy in the 2016 presidential race, with Hillary Rodham Clinton voicing her strong support and using it to criticize her GOP opponents for failing to offer a credible alternative.
    “It’s a good plan, and as president, I’d defend it,” Clinton said.
    On the Republican side, Marco Rubio, a Florida senator, predicted increases in electricity bills would be “catastrophic,” while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called the rule “irresponsible and overreaching.”
    “Climate change will not be solved by grabbing power from states or slowly hollowing out our economy,” Bush said.
    Obama’s rule assigns customized targets to each state, then leaves it up to the state to determine how to meet them. Prodded by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., a number of Republican governors have said they simply won’t comply. If states refuse to submit plans, the EPA has the authority to impose its own plan, and McCarthy said the administration would release a model federal plan that states could adopt right away.
    Another key change to the initial proposal marks a major shift for Obama on natural gas, which the president has championed as a “bridge fuel” whose growing use can help the U.S. wean itself off dirtier coal power while ramping up renewable energy capacity. The final version aims to keep the share of natural gas in the nation’s power mix at current levels.
    Under the final rule, states will also have an additional two years — until 2022 — to comply, yielding to complaints that the original deadline was too soon. They’ll also have an additional year to submit their implementation plans to Washington.
    In an attempt to encourage earlier action, the federal government plans to offer credits to states that boost renewable sources like wind and solar in 2020 and 2021. States could store those credits away to offset pollution emitted after the compliance period starts in 2022.
    Twenty to 30 states were poised to join the energy industry in suing over the rule as soon as it’s formally published, said Scott Segal, a lobbyist with the firm Bracewell and Giuliani who represents utilities. The Obama administration has a mixed track record in fending off legal challenges to its climate rules. GOP leaders in Congress were also weighing various legislative maneuvers to try to block the rule.
    The National Mining Association lambasted the plan and said it would ask the courts to put the rule on hold while legal challenges play out. On the other end of the spectrum, Michael Brune, the Sierra Club’s executive director, said in an interview that his organization planned to hold public rallies, put pressure on individual coal plants and “intervene as necessary in the courts” to defend the rule.
    By clamping down on emissions, Obama is also working to increase his leverage and credibility with other nations whose commitments he’s seeking for a global climate treaty to be finalized later this year in Paris. As its contribution to that treaty, the U.S. has pledged to cut overall emissions 26 percent to 28 percent by 2025, compared to 2005.
    “We’re positioning the United States as an international leader on climate change,” said Brian Deese, Obama’s senior adviser.
    Power plants account for roughly one-third of all U.S. emissions of the heat-trapping gases blamed for global warming, making them the largest single source.

    • Federal framework for adaptation planning and guiding principles
    What is Climate Change Adaptation & Why is it Important?
    Climate change adaptation means adjusting to a changing climate to minimize negative effects and take advantage of new opportunities. Climate change directly affects a wide range of Federal services, operations, programs, assets, and our national security. Through adaptation planning, an agency can identify how climate change is likely to impact its ability to achieve its mission, operate, or meet its policy and program objectives. By integrating climate change adaptation strategies into its planning, the Federal Government can ensure that resources are invested wisely and Federal services and operations remain effective in current and future climate conditions.
    Background on the Implementing Instructions for Federal Agency Climate Change Adaptation
    Executive Order 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, establishes an integrated strategy for sustainability within the Federal Government. Under the Executive Order, each agency is required to evaluate their climate change risks and vulnerabilities to manage the effects of climate change on the agency’s mission and operations in both the short and long-term as part of the formal Strategic Sustainability Performance Planning process. In it’s October 2010 Progress Report, the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force recommended that CEQ issue climate change adaptation planning implementing instructions. The Implementing Instructions for Federal Agency Climate Change Adaptation Planning identify how agencies should respond to the adaptation requirements under the Executive Order.
    Federal Framework for Adaptation Planning, and Guiding Principles
    CEQ based its adaptation planning requirements on a six-step, flexible planning framework and eight Guiding Principles, as recommended by the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force. The planning framework is not meant to be prescriptive or to provide detailed recommendations for project-level adaptation, those detailed options will be developed over time by each agency with the help of a growing set of planning tools, illustrative case studies, and lessons learned. In addition, climate change adaptation planning in an iterative process; our knowledge of climate change is evolving, as is our understanding of different types of adaptive actions.

    “Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.”

    I’ve spent  over 30 hours, since listening on C-SPAN, to the testimony from SCHULTZ,  KISSINGER  and ALBRIGHT , researching, digging up current and historical documents and facts. I have included snippets and comments from entities with very diverse and well informed backgrounds.

    HOW “COMPLICATED” IS  OBAMA U.S. SECURITY STRATEGY?

    My comment, Based on the understanding of a reasonable person?

    It could be  ESPECIALLY INSIDIOUS because of the domino effect and the feedback runaway and  wherein impacts between offending and offended countries  including  Radical Religious terrorism of sizable mass spalls off on smaller countries from allied support for the force of US military Support and weapons.

    The offending and offended country, Radical Religious entities, terrorists,  can then hit other countries, creating even more widespread refuges problems, genocide, killing of Christians, more beheadings of diversified individuals from international origin and capture, more demands for ransom, from all countries that support the war on terrorism  and if a  large allied defense  backing  US Military support, weapons, boots on the ground, sanctions and  intervention  were to occur?

    Such as between a the U.S.A. , Iran, Iraq, Israel, Afghanistan, Russia,  SYRIA,  and, we must  toss in China and Africa etc. too!   Or as the result of hostile actions in space, bombing, DRONES, then the resulting POLITICA L debris cascade, ESPECIALLY INSIDIOUS because development and proliferation of nuclear weapons could be used and could render the defense of  legal borders  and sovereignty of states  essentially impossible.

    WHAT’S SO COMPLICATED ABOUT THAT?

    THE US GOVERNMENT, OBAMA,  MUST NOT OFFEND ANY OF OUR ALLYS, OUR ENEMIES, TERRORISTS, RELIGIOUS ENTITIES, NATIONALITIES, OR  OFFEND ANY OF  THE LEADERS OF ANY OF THESE FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AT ANYTIME?

    “The difference between using an offending word and a non-offending word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

    YOU CAN PLEASE SOME OF THESE FOREIGN  ENTITIES  SOME OF THE TIME?

    Who knows what the future might bring? The nation seethes with ethnic, sectarian, tribal and ideological grievances.

    2009 ALBRIGHT’S  STRATEGY, DIPLOMACY AND FOREIGN POLICY

    May 19, 2006  (nearly nine years ago)

    Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright acknowledges that her new book “The Mighty and the Almighty” flies in the face of conventional wisdom on foreign policy.

    May 19, 2006 “DIPLOMATS IN MY ERA WERE TAUGHT NOT TO INVITE TROUBLE.

     AND NO SUBJECT SEEMED MORE INHERENTLY TREACHEROUS THAN RELIGION.”

    Albright sought to expand relations with AMERICAN MUSLIM LEADERS

    Decision makers need to do a better job of understanding RELIGION’S role in the world. She also suggests the government should use religious leaders to support and explain U.S. foreign policy.

    WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND ISLAM BETTER. I think we all have a tendency to generalize, to focus on the worst part of what is happening under the auspices, SO TO SPEAK, OF ISLAM. AND THAT’S EXTREMISM AND SOME OF THE VIOLENCE.

    History

    Iraq war shows limits of US power

    World affairs editor, BBC News

     March 19, 2008 More importantly, the war has shown the limits of American power. It is clear the United States can only manage to fight two small wars at a time.

    We have seen how hard it is for the Americans to deal with a few thousand lightly-armed volunteers

    Iraq and Afghanistan have stretched the US armed forces almost to breaking point. America after the invasion of Iraq is no longer the superpower it was before.

    On Monday, Vice-President Dick Cheney came to Baghdad and talked about “the phenomenal improvement in SECURITY“. That day more than 60 Iraqis were killed in bomb attacks.

    Germany’s 19th-Century Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck, said that GREAT POWERS HAD TO BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN THEY PUT THEIR MILITARY STRENGTH TO THE TEST. UNLESS THEY ARE OVERWHELMINGLY SUCCESSFUL, HE MEANT, THE PERCEPTION WILL BE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DEFEATED.

    Well, because I think that in looking at what was going on in the world, it was evident that religion and the force of religion and people’s interpretation of how they saw God, really is very much a part of international relations. Rather than keeping religion and religious leaders out of things, we need their help.

    We are dealing with very basic issues of human existence. And, everybody comes with a certain amount of their own history –thousands of years of culture and history.

    She believes President Bush has alienated potential allies around the world who disagree with his religious beliefs. “GOD IS ON OUR SIDE?” (I remember  the quote, and thought at the time, boy she’s right,  that is really going to set them off)

    Albright sought to expand relations with AMERICAN MUSLIM LEADERS

    Decision makers need to do a better job of understanding religion’s role in the world. She also suggests the government should use religious leaders to support and explain U.S. foreign policy.

    Our diplomats are very well trained and they are very capable. But, they have not really focused on religion per se as a subject of study. A Secretary of State has economic advisors and arms control advisors and environmental advisors. And so, I would advocate having religious advisors that are complementing all the other advisors.

    Coastal Watershed Institute (CWI)

    CWI IS A SMALL 501C3 NON-PROFIT FIRST FORMED IN 1996. CWI’s goal is to advance protection of intact and critical natural ecosystems thru long-term wise ecosystem management, nearshore restoration at the ecosystem level, and mentoring our next generation of scientists and managers, and citizen partnerships. Over our careers we at CWI have learned that -without exception- what is good for the environment is good for community. CWI has also learned that saving what we have is best for the ecosystem and economy- so CWI emphasizes protection,. We also know that when we are restoring, true restoration must occur at the ecosystem level to be successful.. Our experience is also that the majority of the community – which is growing rapidly – wants to be wise stewards but need the tools to do so. Our work is extremely challenging. Preservation and restoration can take decades-and that bureaucratic and political challenges (sometimes significant) are not reasons to quit. In total our work is to link senior scientists, managers, and citizens to motivate for the best, not just the easiest, management actions and solutions. Our work is never ending and crosses generations. Collectively CWI senior scientists have hundreds of years of experience managing and researching the natural history of this region CWI engages these scientists with college students, citizens, and landowners on the ground to understand how our natural ecosystems function and how to protect them while training the next generation of managers and scientists. We bring science to management in a rural, and sometimes extremely conservative, but ecologically critical region of the Pacific Northwest. Top priority work for CWI include coordinating the Elwha Nearshore Consortium, a group of scientists, citizens, and managers dedicated to understanding and promoting the nearshore restoration associated with the Elwha dam removals, and conduct unique and critical research to understand and promote nearshore habitat function, and define how to protect the nearshore functions, including cross regional fish use of nearshore habitats, and the importance of Dungeness and Elwha feeder bluffs for surf smelt. CWI also regularly sponsor’s community forums on emerging and ongoing topics including Elwha nearshore science, management, and restoration, and net pen aquaculture. Nearshore ecosystem services are complex, compelling, and integral element of CWI’s work. We are honored to be a partner in this new frontier of ecosystem management

  • The “RESTORATION” Shell Game

    The “RESTORATION” Shell Game

    A highly convoluted “GAME OF RESTORATION” that  is involving the sleight of many, many hands, in which hundreds of  inverted Federal agencies, WA State agencies, WAC’S and /or other NGO, NUTSHELLS are moved about, and hard working taxpayers must attempt to spot which is the one, of many thousands, with  NGO’S or other government agencies are underneath the “RESTORATION” plan.

     

    WOW!  HOW MANY NUTS CAN YOU GET UNDER ONE RESTORATION SHELL?

    “WE’RE RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING THE MORE THAN 600 PARTNERS TOGETHER,

    designing a unified plan, and making sure money is being spent efficiently, and our region is making progress,” says Gerry O’Keefe, executive director of the Puget Sound Partnership.

    In response to this growing environmental crisis, the Washington State legislature created the Puget Sound Partnership a state agency dedicated to identifying, prioritizing, and coordinating efforts to protect and RESTORE PUGET SOUND. Since its founding in 2007, the partnership has collaborated with state and federal agencies, local governments, tribes, businesses, and citizen groups to achieve specific cleanup and restoration goals for Puget Sound.

    ——————————————————————————————

    No doubt with MORE THAN 600 RESTORATION PARTNERS the following is a true statement

    In addition, multiple, overlapping jurisdictions and AUTHORITIES creates challenges for coordinated decision-making and proactive planning.

    Even the government is clueless, when it comes to how many nuts are responsible for  planning, authorizing and implementing the RESTORATION SHELL GAME .
