    Chapter 173-321 WAC
    Public Participation Grants

    Overview

    Introduction

    Under Chapter 70.105D RCW, Ecology administers a program for grants to “persons who may be adversely affected by a release or threatened release of a hazardous substance and not-for-profit public interest groups”. Grants are used to “facilitate public participation in the investigation and remediation of a release or threatened release of a hazardous substance and to implement the state’s solid and hazardous waste management priorities.”

    Why are we doing this rulemaking?
    In 2016, Ecology obtained an independent audit of our Public Participation Grants program. The current application process for the grants requires a significant amount of time and agency resources to establish applicant eligibility and award the grants. Changes Ecology is proposing are either specific audit recommendations or based on the agency’s experiences implementing the program.

    Input from past grant recipients and other stakeholders also indicated a need to increase the emphasis the PPG program places in reaching disadvantaged communities adversely affected by toxic contamination and cleanup work. Updating the rule now will allow us to apply these changes to grants awarded in the 2017-19 biennium.

    Scope of rulemaking
    Ecology proposes to:

    • Revise program priorities to include environmental justice
    • Revise eligibility requirements
    • Clarify the criteria used to evaluate applications
    • Revise eligible costs
    • Develop a method for renewing grants annually per Chapter 70.105D RCW
    • Streamline the grant application and evaluation process to increase consistency, transparency, objectivity, and efficiency
    • Revise the grant application process to authorize electronic submittals
    • Update grant administration requirements
    • Align Chapter 173-321 WAC to current program needs.

    Ecology will periodically update these web pages to provide up-to-date information about this rulemaking. We will notify interested parties through the agency email listserv (WAC Track), a Waste 2 Resources ListServ specifically established for the Public Participation Grants program. We will e-mail contacts identified in our grants-related database and those identified by grants staff. We will publish notice in the Washington State Register as we move through the process. To learn more about how to contact Ecology and participate in the process, please visit our public involvement page.

    So sorry to hear this Karl. I never had the privilege of meeting Marv in person. Only through our digital communications with the group. His input and views have always been very enlightening to me as with yours and Pearls. Learned a lot, laughed a lot and shook my head even more so, in agreement. Surely I will keep his memory with me. His cyber friendship to all of us, though so brief, is worth a page in our book of life.  We lost another good patriot, our neighbor Debra Perry, also on the 20th,  who served as our republican district caucus leader for years. God gained two true souls that day, who while on earth touched ours.It’s never to late to thank Marv for his friendship and goodwill.  Spirits are a powerful energy. Isn’t that what Marv left us all with? The powerful energy of his spirit to carry on? and believe in those dreams and in ourselves? We can thank him everyday for that spirit of friendship, to carry on. Next time I feel like giving up, I will think of Marv, his love for our country, of life and how he never gave up. He kept his faith. 

    I’ll put a blessing in a card from us, for Jolene and get it off this week.

    Best to you all and thanks again

    Removal of the Elwha Dams – The great Olympic Peninsula Environmental Scam

    Editorial by Marv Chastain

    Posted 6/3/2010

    Clallam County, WA – In 1992, Congress decreed that the Elwha River must be restored. While everything else in the bill was defined, they never got around to saying what it should be “restored” to. Since nobody knows what it was in pre-settlement days, the “what” has been left up to the bureaucrats. In the intervening 18 years, they have decided that the great salmon runs of the past must be restored. However, their planning does not seem to reach to anything in the ocean and blithely ignores the fact that most of the salmon do not return because they are being caught in the ocean anywhere from Siberia to Alaska to Canada to the US straits of Juan de Fuca, not only by commercial fishermen of the world, but by a huge army of US-protected sea lions, seals and other fish-eating birds and mammals.

    They have focused on the two power dams built in the early 20th century without fish ladders. Now there is no question that leaving out the fish ladders was a big mistake (they substituted a hatchery for the legal requirement for a fish ladder, with the approval of the state legislature). However, it was a mistake that could have been corrected at any time – even now. Environmental groups – Sierra Club, Earth First, and others have consistently blocked any effort to build those fish ladders, insisting on removing the dams, so now the government has bought the dams, including about 900 acres of good timber with plans to destroy those dams and the lakes they have created – in 2012. (Evidently it has taken 20 years to figure out “how”.)

    It appears the real problem is that one of those two dams in located inside the Olympic National Park (ONP). It is a big man-made structure that has created a beautiful lake (Mills) that is home to a great variety of waterfowl, water mammals and FISH. But, park people do not like anything man-made (except money).

    That dam was built in 1927, long before the ONP became a national park, by a group of local entrepreneurs headed up by Thomas Aldwell . The same group built the first dam about five miles up from the river mouth in 1910-13. Those two dams produced the first electricity for the city of Port Angeles and the local mills. During World War I, the first dam produced electricity to run the Bremerton Navy yard. As time has gone by, the local demand for electricity has exceeded the output of the two dams, so a power line from Bonneville (built in the 1930s) supplies Port Angeles and the dams’ power goes exclusively to the Daishowa paper mill.

    Just removing the dams won’t do. When the first dam was built, qualified engineering was hard to come by on this peninsula (1910). They built a huge concrete block but failed to get is properly secured to the river bed. When they closed the gates and filled up the lake, the full pressure of 100 feet of water, pushed the river right under the dam. This project was one which the dam owners had everything invested in and they were desperate. They set off a huge blast of dynamite in the rock cliffs on each of the side of the river, blowing rock down into the river bed and filling in about 75 feet behind the dam.

    When the dam is removed, there will still be a 75 foot rock and fill dam that goes back at least 100 yards from the concrete dam. That will have to be removed if salmon are to ascend the river. That will involve diverting the flow (you can’t operate heavy construction equipment in a flowing river and a salmon can’t jump 75 feet).
    Original cost estimate was $329 million 1992 dollars

    Ever hear of a big government project with vague parameters that cost less than the original estimate? That’s at least half a billion in today’s dollars.

    Loss of waterfowl and mammals

    Elwha lakes are heavily used by waterfowl (about 20 different species) and water mammals such as beaver, according to a survey of waterfowl  done (at your expense) by Martha Jordan, secretary of the Trumpeter Swan Society and an honest scientist. Somehow, that survey got carefully left out of the government’s Environmental Impact Statement.

    20+ million cubic yards of gunk

    The deluge of detritus released by removal of the lower dam will inundate the river below the dam with an average of six feet of gunk (per the government’s own scientific report). That is the only spawning ground for the fabulous Elwha Chinook – a distinct sub- species. A salmon hatchery has been built in another stream to hatch Elwha Chinook to replace the sub-species that will be destroyed. But, a government report, bearing the name of “Winter” (Brian Winter – chief of the government Dam destruction team?) written before the project was hatched, warns that this tactic may not work and an entire population should not be destroyed in anticipation that it will.

    It is also highly questionable if the salmon hatched in another stream will somehow know they are Elwha salmon. Nobody knows the mechanism or timing for a salmon being imprinted with his/her native stream.

    Why not just build a fish ladder and allow them to go on up?

    Trumpeter Swans on lake Aldwell – The world’s largest waterfowl – magnificent

    To be evicted by the Elwha project

    $27 Million Dollar “ Deal

    The government bought the dams and 900 acres of good timber for the bargain price of $27,000,000. They did so with the threat that if the owner didn’t sell, they would be forced to remove the dams at their own expense. I have it on what I consider good authority that the power produced by the dams earned the owners a nine million dollar profit in the last year they owned them. That extortion generated profit now goes to the National Park Service (NPS).  That profit may be the number one reason that removal has been delayed year-by-year now for about 12 years.

    Note: The above list is of waterfowl observed by Martha Jordan in 1994 and 1995. That does not necessarily mean it is the only waterfowl that use or nest around the lakes. This survey was paid for by the park service, but left out of their EIS (for obvious reasons).

    Strange supporters

    Why does the Audubon Society and other groups calling themselves “environmental”  support this fiasco?

    Reliable reports indicate spotted owls nest in the area.

    The cost to salmon

    The Elwha dams, unlike most hydro-electric dams, are operated on a “run of the river” basis. That is, they are normally run in such a fashion that the outflow is as nearly as possible identical to the inflow – giving the lakes a normal water level. However, in dry summers, extra water is spilled to help the salmon runs. When the dams are out, where will this extra water come from?

    The dams produce an average of 19 megawatts of electrical power. They do this with nearly century old equipment. With modern equipment, they could produce much more.

    Cost may include someone’s well

    Bottom pressure on Lake Mills is in excess of 8700 lbs per square foot. Geologic maps show a fault line running diagonally across the lake. Logic says this amount of pressure is forcing water into the fault and then into an acquifer. Who’s well will go dry when the lake is drained?

    The magnificent claims by the dam buster group that 400,000 salmon will return to the Elwha after the dams are removed, consists primarily of pink and chum salmon.   These fish do not rear in a river. They just hatch out and drift down to salt water. Hence they can be hatched in any stream and do not need the Elwha’s resources.  .  .  .  .  .JMC

  • Trump Picks Ryan Zinke to Head the DOI?

    Yep, Trump Picked Ryan Zinke to Head the DOI

    ZINKI’S  IDEA OF HIS DUTY AS THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR AS  SECRETARY IS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE A BROAD CONSENSUS ON WHAT WE’RE DOING

    ZINKE IS A RELATIVE POLITICAL NEWCOMER IN WASHINGTON AND TO POLITICS GENERALLY. DURING HIS SHORT TENURE AS A STATE LAWMAKER IN MONTANA, HE DEVELOPED A REPUTATION AS A “MODERATE” ON SOME ISSUES.

    ODDLY ENOUGH, AS A POLITICAL NEWCOMER, ZINKE HAS AN EXTENSIVE VOCABULARY OF THE LIBERAL POLITICO ESTABLISHMENTS KEY BUZZ WORDS.

    ZINKI’S TOP PRIORITIES WOULD BE TO GIVE LOCAL LAND MANAGERS AND RANGERS MORE FLEXIBILITY IN LAND MANAGEMENT DECISIONS

    REALLY, START COOLING OFF TENSION OVER LAND USE

    AFTER ABOUT FOUR HOURS OF QUESTIONING  AND COMMENTS  DURING . REP. RYAN ZINKE CONFIRMATION HEARING BEFORE THE SENATE ENERGY AND NATURAL RESOURCES COMMITTEE TUESDAY

    IT’S ALREADY CLEAR THERE COULD BE SOME FRICTION BETWEEN AN INTERIOR SECRETARY ZINKE AND SOME REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SPENDING.

    AND REALLY, ZINKE  PROMISES TO BRING A TEDDY ROOSEVELT-STYLE APPROACH TO MANAGING FEDERAL PUBLIC LANDS?

    ZINKE  WENT ON TO SAY THAT HE THOUGHT THE COUNTRY HAS BENEFITED GREATLY FROM A LOT OF NATIONAL MONUMENT DESIGNATIONS, INCLUDING IN HIS HOME STATE OF MONTANA.

    ZINKE HINTED AT THE HEARING THAT ONE PRIORITY IN AN EXPECTED TRUMP-BACKED INFRASTRUCTURE BILL WILL BE TO ADDRESS A $12 BILLION BACKLOG IN MAINTENANCE AT NATIONAL PARKS.

    ZINKE HINTED? THAT  $12,000,000,000.00 BILLION DOLLAR NATIONAL PARK SERVICE (NPS) BACKLOG FOR MAINTENANCE WOULD BE  A PRIORITY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD HAVE A RED FLAG PRIORITY ON ANYTHING WITH  $12,000,000,000.00 BILLION DOLLAR AMOUNT ATTACHED TO IT.

    $12,000,000,000.00 BILLION DOLLARS IS THE LOW ESTIMATE FOR BUILDING THE WALL.

    MY CONSIDERED OPINION IS THAT RYAN ZINKE WOULD SUCK AS THE SECRETARY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR.

    WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, NOT ONLY  DO I  QUESTION, I STRENOUSLY OBJECT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PICK REP. RYAN ZINKE, R-MONT TO HEAD THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR (DOI)

     I’VE NEVER HEARD OF RYAN ZINKE. PERIOD WHO VETTED HIM?

    THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR (DOI) IS A MESS, AND ITS AGENCIES ARE A MESS, LIKE THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE (NPS) AND THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT (BLM) IS A BLOODY MESS,  THE DOI HAS MORE THAN CONTROL OF PUBLIC LAND, WITH A COMBINED CONTROL OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF ACRES OF PUBLIC LANDS, MOSTLY IN THE WEST.

    AS PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD SAY “WHAT A MESS”.

    THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR (DOI) IS A MESS

    During the Obama administration, fights over control of federal land boiled over into armed standoffs led by rancher Cliven Bundy and his sons in Nevada and Oregon.

    And, During the Obama administration, fights over control of federal land boiled over again on January 2, 2016, armed militants seized the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County Oregon

    On January 26, 2016 Robert “LaVoy” Finicum,  was shot three times in the back by two OSP officers.

    ——————————————————————————————–

    IT’S ALREADY CLEAR THERE COULD BE SOME FRICTION BETWEEN AN INTERIOR SECRETARY ZINKE AND some Republicans in Congress especially when it comes to spending.

    Certainly, President Trump is aware of the abuse of power by Obama’s  appointed interior secretary of Department of the Interior (DOI)

    The abuse of power by the DOI has been historically documented, and was crystal clear to America’s taxpaying citizens and voters long before  Trump formally announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015.

    THE BLM LAND GRAB

    In May 2014, in Texas, militias and their allies came to protest a BLM survey of more than 90,000 acres along the Red River, fearing the federal government was planning a land grab.”

    ‘If things don’t change, it’s not long before shots will be fired,’ Lyman said, joining other conservative lawmakers such as Chaffetz in warning of violence if the federal government didn’t rein in the BLM.

    ‘We can avoid it. But it’s not going to be by the people changing their attitudes and accepting more intrusion into their lives. IT’S GOING TO BE BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ACKNOWLEDGING PEOPLE’S FREEDOM.’‘It is impossible to overstate the importance of the victory won in the desert today, “The feds were routed—routed. There is no word that applies. Courage is contagious, defiance is contagious, victory is contagious. Yet the war is not over.’”

    1921 Emergency Quota Law (An act to limit the immigration of aliens into the United States). H.R. 4075; Pub.L. 67-5; 42 Stat. 5. 67th Congress; May 19, 1921.
    Signed in May 1921, the Emergency Quota Act established the first ethnic quota system for selective admittance of immigrants to the United States.
    which imposed a hefty head tax on all immigrants from China.
    1921 THE EMERGENCY QUOTA LAW
    Also known as: Johnson Act; Emergency Quota Act of 1921
    Significance: The first federal law in U.S. history to limit the immigration of Europeans, the Immigration Act of 1921 reflected the growing American fear that people from southern and eastern European countries not only did not adapt well into American society but also threatened its very existence.
    1921 THE EMERGENCY QUOTA LAW of 1921 limits the number of immigrants entering the U.S. each year to 350,000 and implements a nationality quota. Immigration from any country is capped at 3% of the population of that nationality based on the 1910 census. The law reduces immigration from eastern and southern Europe while favoring immigrants from Northern Europe.
    1922 Congress passes the Married Women’s Act of 1922, also known as the “Cable Act.” It repeals the provision of the Expatriation Act of 1907 that revoked the citizenship of women who married foreigners

    The Stench of Appeasment?

    I seem to smell THE STENCH OF APPEASEMENT in the air.
    Margaret Thatcher

    STENCH?
    A very strong unpleasant smell, especially a lingering smell associated with death or decay

    APPEASEMENT?
    The political strategy of pacifying a potentially hostile nation in the hope of avoiding war, often by granting concessions, an attempt to stop complaints or reduce difficulties by making concessions

    WHAT WERE AND ARE THE POLITICALLY MOTIVATED STRATEGIES FOR THE APPEASEMENT OF STENCH?

    1. TRAYVON MARTIN
    Eric Holder’s decision is the most recent example of his practice of abusing prosecutorial discretion, misinterpreting the law, and deploying criminal justice for political ends.
    Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/07/18/our-contemptuous-attorney-general-eric-holder-must-resign/#ixzz2ZWQzbVpB
    —————————————————————–
    2. BENGHAZI COVER-UP.
    Benghazigate is a documented cover-up of the terrorist attack in Libya on 9/11 in 2012. Demoted whistleblower Greg Hicks confirmed that a “stand down” order was issued and two of our troops were killed after 8 hours of fighting. ‘Come again?’ fact: Obama took a nap while Ambassador Chris Stevens was reportedly raped and murdered before jetting off to a Vegas fundraiser.
    —————————————————————
    3. IRS SCANDAL
    IRS Targets the Democrat Party’s Political Enemies
    The IRS recently said it was “sorry” for targeting tea party and pro-Constitution groups. The AP reports that senior tax officials knew in June 2011. The IRS also leaked sensitive tax information to a left-wing group. Fun fact: This is the agency in charge of Obamacare enforcement.
    ————————————————————-
    4. DOJ PHONE-TAPS AP REPORTERS
    Attorney General ERIC HOLDER has recused himself from an investigation into why the DOJ phone-tapped as many as 30 AP reporters. It is unclear if the DOJ was seeking out a national security leaker or one of its whistleblowers. Creepy fact: Under Holder, the Justice Department has prosecuted more government officials for alleged leaks than all his predecessors combined.
    ——————————————————-
    5. EPA DISCRIMINATION AGAINST CONSERVATIVE GROUPS
    in addition to the bogus email account scandal of former EPA head Lisa Jackson aka “Richard Windsor,” there is a new scandal involving the agency. The EPA discriminated against conservative groups by charging them fees 93% of the time for seeking information, which were waived for enviroleftist groups 92% of the time. Corruption fact: Pro-Publica was a perfect 3-for-3 in waiver requests (see IRS scandal).
    ———————————————————————
    6. OBAMACARE FUNDING?
    HHS SOLICITS FUNDS FROM COMPANIES IT’S REGULATING
    This one is not only UNCONSTITUTIONAL, but dangerous. The Health & Human Services department has been doing an end-around Congress to raise revenue for Obamacare. Thus, it appears that a regulatory government agency is hitting up funds from companies that it is regulating. Disturbing fact: HHS & the IRS will both be running Obamacare.
    ———————————————————————
    7. FAST & FURIOUS
    What if someone told you that the Obama administration ran assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels and then didn’t track them? Seems like a really bad Hollywood movie plot? Well, it actually happened. Deadly fact: Those guns were used in dozens of murders in Mexico and the killing of U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry.

    Jan 19, 6:15 PM I just watched President Trump and his family standing and looking up at the Lincoln Memorial.

    In the exact spot I stood many years ago. The 30 year old memory was the inspiration for this website, as you all know.

    Virgil Goode on Immigration

    Constitution Party presidential nominee; former Republican Representative (VA-5)

    Moratorium on green cards until unemployment is under 5%
    OBAMA: I want to build on the five million jobs that we’ve created over the last 30 months in the private sector alone. And that means we change our tax code so we’re giving incentives to companies that are investing here in the US and creating jobs here

    GOODE: To get jobs in America, neither President Obama nor Governor Romney are focusing on some of the key issues. First issue, we need to eliminate illegal immigration, keep illegals from coming into this country, taking jobs from American citizens. Secondly, we need to have a near-complete moratorium on green card admissions to this country until unemployment is under 5%. We give thousands of green cards per year to working-age persons that come into the US, take good-paying jobs from students that had just graduated. We need to preserve jobs in America for American citizens first. it is one thing we could do right away to have jobs in America for American citizens first.

    Illegals’ presence here steals jobs from American citizens
    Q: What do you plan on doing with immigrants without their green card that are currently living here as productive members of society?

    ROMNEY: We should give green cards to people who graduate with skills that we need. [But] I will not grant amnesty to those who’ve come here illegally.

    OBAMA: Young people who come here, brought here oftentimes by their parents, have gone to school here, understand themselves as Americans in every way except having papers, then we should make sure that we give them a pathway to citizenship.

    GOODE: We need to totally end illegal immigration, rewarding persons who come here with jobs, which the questioner asked about is the wrong way to do it. If you are in this country illegally, stealing a job from an American citizen, I’m going to do all I can to put an American citizen in that job and not somebody that has crossed our border, come into the country and violated our laws. Jobs in America should be for U.S. citizens first.

    Source: Democracy Now! Expanded Second Obama-Romney 2012 debate , Oct 16, 2012

    Use entire AZ law as model for US, not just E-Verify
    OBAMA: [Romney] called the Arizona law a model for the nation. Part of the Arizona law said that law enforcement officers could stop folks because they suspected maybe they looked like they might be undocumented workers and check their papers.

    GOODE: Romney clarified what he said about the Arizona legislation. He was only saying that E-Verify was a model for the country. I say the whole bill in Arizona was a model for the country, and if I’m elected president, my attorney general is going to be supporting Arizona. We will also be supporting Alabama. We’re going to stop illegal immigration and stop the coddling and catering that is exhibited by the Obama administration and that will be followed through by Romney.

    Source: Democracy Now! Expanded Second Obama-Romney 2012 debate , Oct 16, 2012

    No green cards for foreigners diplomas; US citizens first
    ROMNEY: I think that we should give green cards to people who graduate with skills that we need, people around the world with accredited degrees in science and math, get a green card stapled to their diploma, come to the U.S. of A.

    GOODE: I am the only candidate that will not be in favor of attaching a green card to a foreign student’s graduation diploma. We need to have U.S. citizens first in our American institutions. I’ve got stacks of recommendations and requests for students in high school level to go to colleges that had been rejected and replaced with foreign students. We need to preserve U.S. college admissions for U.S. citizens first, instead of trying to bring in everyone from every country around the world. It’s time for a president to put citizenship first, and I will.

    Stop illegal aliens & terrorists on our Southern border
    Illegal immigration must stop. Our borders must be secure. In Congress, I supported and cosponsored legislation to stop illegal aliens, terrorists, drug smugglers, and other criminals from coming across our Southern border. We need to utilize troops, fences, and other measures to stop the invasion from Mexico. I was the first to sponsor legislation providing for a fence along the Southern Border. We must continue to fight for funding and for adequacy of the fence.

    End anchor babies and reduce legal immigration
    We must end the anchor baby situation, whereby a child of illegal aliens is an automatic citizen of the United States. I oppose granting amnesty for those persons who come into the United States illegally. Amnesty did not work in the 1980s. Amnesty did not work in the 1990s, and it will not solve the problem now. Amnesty only encourages more illegal entry into the United States. Legal immigration must be reduced not increased.

    End diversity visas to limit Muslim immigration
    If American citizens don’t wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran. We need to stop illegal immigration totally and reduce legal immigration and end the diversity visas policy pushed hard by President Clinton and allowing many persons from the Middle East to come to this country. I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to America and to prevent our resources from being swamped.

    The Ten Commandments and “In God We Trust” are on the wall in my office. A Muslim student came by the office & asked why I did not have anything on my wall about the Koran. My response was clear, “As long as I have the honor of representing the citizens of the 5th District, the Koran is not going to be on the wall of my office.”

    Source: Letter to constituents regarding Keith Ellison’s election , Dec 20, 2006

    Voted YES on building a fence along the Mexican border.
    Within 18 months, achieves operational control over U.S. land and maritime borders, including:

    1. systematic border surveillance through more effective use of personnel and technology; and
    2. physical infrastructure enhancements to prevent unlawful border entry

    Defines “operational control” as the prevention of all unlawful U.S. entries, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, narcotics, and other contraband.

    Proponents support voting YES because:

    It is obvious there is no more defining issue in our Nation today than stopping illegal immigration. The most basic obligation of any government is to secure the Nation’s borders. One issue in which there appears to be a consensus between the Senate and the House is on the issue of building a secure fence. So rather than wait until comprehensive legislation is enacted, we should move forward on targeted legislation which is effective and meaningful. The legislation today provides over 700 miles of two-layered reinforced fencing, and for the rest of the border provides a virtual fence, via integrated surveillance technology.

    Opponents support voting NO because:

    Just to build the fence is going to cost us at least $7 billion. Where is the money coming from to pay for it? How much is it going to cost to maintain this 700-mile fence? Who is going to do it? This bill contains no funding.

    This bill also ignores real enforcement measures, like hiring more Border Patrol personnel, and instead builds a Berlin Wall on our southern border. So long as employers need workers in this country, and while our immigration systems impede rather than facilitate timely access of willing workers to those opportunities, undocumented immigration will never be controlled.

    Walls, barriers, and military patrols will only force those immigrants to utilize ever more dangerous routes and increase the number of people who die in search of an opportunity to feed and clothe their families.

    Reference: Secure Fence Act; Bill H R 6061 ; vote number 2006-446 on Sep 14, 2006

    Voted YES on preventing tipping off Mexicans about Minuteman Project.
    Voting YES on this amendment supports the Minuteman Project, a group of volunteers who have taken on surveillance of the Mexican border for illegal immigrants. The amendment states that US funds will not be used to tell the Mexican government about the whereabouts of the Minuteman Project volunteers. Proponents of the Minuteman Project say that they are volunteer citizens doing what the federal government SHOULD be doing, but has failed to do. Opponents of the Minuteman Project say that they are vigilantes at best and anti-Mexican racists at worst. The amendment states:

    None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to provide a foreign government information relating to the activities of an organized volunteer civilian action group, operating in the State of California, Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona, unless required by international treaty.

      The amendment’s sponsor said on its behalf:

    • What this amendment does is it clarifies Congress’ position on a Border Patrol practice or a practice of the US Government that tips off illegal immigrants as to where citizen patrols may be located.
    • As a response to the lawlessness along the Mexican border, a group has sprung up called the Minutemen Project, and the Minutemen Project is definitely not politically correct in Washington DC. However, they filled a void which the government was unable to fill.
    • There are over 7,000 volunteers in the Minutemen organization, and their help has been productive and good.
    • What my amendment does is simply says that the U.S. Government cannot tip off the Mexican officials as to where these folks are located. Plain and simple, nothing fancy about it. I am sure the Border Patrol will say, oh, no, we are not doing that, and yet one of the Web pages of the Secretary of Mexico had the information very explicit, and we just do not believe that is a good practice.

    Reference: Department of Homeland Security appropriations; Bill HR 5441 Amendment 968 ; vote number 2006-224 on Jun 6, 2006

    Voted YES on reporting illegal aliens who receive hospital treatment.
    Vote to pass the bill that would require hospitals to gather and report information on possible illegal aliens before hospitals can be reimbursed for treating them. The bill would also make employers liable for the reimbursements if an undocumented employee seeks medical attention, unless the employer meets particular conditions for exemption. The bill would specify that hospitals aren’t required to provide care to undocumented aliens if they can be transported to their home country without a significant chance of worsening their condition.

Our borders remain porous–a virtual revolving door and welcome mat for those who would seek to harm us. This was never more evident than when news broke some time ago that the INS had actually renewed the visas for several of the 9/11 hijackers after the attack had taken place. We cannot prevent terrorism if we cannot keep terrorists out of our country.

    This bill will deny student and “diversity” visas to anyone coming from a country currently on the State Department’s list of terrorism-sponsoring countries. It may seem shocking that citizens from these countries can even still receive these visas, but it is true. We must put a lock on this revolving door if we are going to protect Americans from the continuing threat of terrorism on our soil.

    Further, it is time we face reality regarding Saudi Arabia. We must remember that most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi nationals. Also, when al-Qaeda supporters were rounded up from Afghanistan, reports showed that of the 158 prisoners, more than 100 were Saudi nationals. With such an evident level of involvement from Saudi nationals in these activities, it is quite obvious that the Saudi government is not doing all it can, or all it should, in resolving this urgent problem. Therefore, Saudi citizens will also be denied student and “diversity” visas to the United States under this bill.

    The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is a national, non-profit, public interest membership organization of concerned citizens united by their belief in the need for immigration reform. Founded in 1979, FAIR believes that the U.S. can and must have an immigration policy that is non-discriminatory and designed to serve the environmental, economic, and social needs of our country.

    FAIR seeks to improve border security, to stop illegal immigration, and to promote immigration levels consistent with the national interest—more traditional rates of about 300,000 a year.

    With more than 70,000 members nationwide, FAIR is a non-partisan group whose membership runs the gamut from liberal to conservative.

    The ratings are based on the votes the organization considered most important; the numbers reflect the percentage of time the representative voted the organization’s preferred position.

    A bill to provide that Executive Order 13166 shall have no force or effect, and to prohibit the use of funds for certain purposes.

    Be it enacted that Executive Order 13166, ‘Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency’ (August 16, 2000), is null and void and shall have no force or effect.

    On August 11, 2000, the President signed Executive Order 13166. The Executive Order requires Federal agencies to examine the services they provide, identify any need for services to those with limited English proficiency (LEP), and develop and implement a system to provide those services so LEP persons can have meaningful access to them.

    Ten Thousand Commandments 2016 (an 89 page report)

    An Annual Snapshot of the Federal Regulatory State

    Clyde Wayne Crews • May 3, 2016

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

    Highlights of the 2016 edition include:

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

    An Annual Snapshot of  the Federal Regulatory State

    2015 Edition by Clyde Wayne Crews Jr.

    REGULATION: THE HIDDEN TAX

    Federal environmental, safety and health, and economic regulations affect

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

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

    debate.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

     

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

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

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

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

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

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

    PRESIDENT OBAMA ISSUED 215 BY THE END OF 2014.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    AND THAT’S ALL I NEED.

    BARACK OBAMA

    FROM RULE OF LAW TO RULE BY…WHATEVER?

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

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

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

    Originally posted at The Daily Signal. 

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

    The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
     —————————–
    In enacting the FCPA, Congress recognized that bribes
    can come in many shapes and sizes—a broad range of unfair
    benefits—and so the statute prohibits the corrupt “offer,
    payment, promise to pay, or authorization of the payment of
    any money, or offer, gift, promise to give, or authorization of
    the giving of anything of value to” a foreign official.
     ———————————-
    An improper benefit can take many forms. While
    cases often involve payments of cash(sometimes in the
    guise of “consulting fees” or “commissions” given through
    intermediaries),others have involved travel expenses and
    expensive gifts. Like the domestic bribery statute, the FCPA
    does not contain a minimum threshold amount for corrupt
    gifts or payments.
     ————————————
    In addition, a number of FCPA enforcement actions
    have involved the corrupt payment of travel and entertainment expenses. Both the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) where these types of expenditures occurred in conjunction with other conduct reflecting systemic bribery or other clear indicia of corrupt intent
     ————————————
    Charitable Contributions
    Companies often engage in charitable giving as part
    of legitimate local outreach. The FCPA does not prohibit

    In what could be a told you so moment for Donald Trump, the U.K. on Tuesday announced …

    The UK’s southern border checks are conducted in northern FRANCE and attempted illegal crossings have more than quadrupled in recent years. UK Border Force guards on FRENCH soil stopped 84,088 illegal immigrants last year, figures released last month show.

    The wall was announced by the UK’s immigration minister Robert Goodwill on Wednesday, after attempts to illegally enter the UK via Calais quadrupled. Construction is expected to begin this month.

As of the end of June, TRAC tells us the backlog is at an all-time high of 496,704 — just short of the half million case mark.

    Many open borders advocates and liberal progressives seem to believe that it is the United States government’s job to act in loco parentis for all of the failed and failing countries in the world — and that the only way to do this is to welcome hundreds of thousands to our shores from across the globe. As often as not, the leaders of those countries gladly cede that role to us rather than take the hard steps needed to bootstrap their people, their societies, and their economies into the 21st Century.

     BUT TAKING ON SUCH A ROLE THROUGH TURNING A BLIND EYE TOWARD MASS MIGRATION IS IRRESPONSIBLE, AND NO MORE REALISTIC OR LIKELY TO BE SUCCESSFUL THAN BELIEVING OUR INTERNATIONAL ROLE IS TO BE THE GLOBAL POLICEMAN.

    A DIRECT QUOTE FROM THE HORSES DIPLOMATIC MOUTH

    AFTER ALMOST FIVE YEARS OF FIGHTING, IT’S PRETTY INCREDIBLE THAT AS WE COME HERE TO LONDON IN 2016, THE SITUATION ON THE GROUND IS ACTUALLY WORSE, NOT BETTER. AND THE SUFFERING IN SYRIA GROWS; IT’S NOT DIMINISHING.

    TO DATE, THE UNITED STATES HAS PROVIDED OVER $4.5 BILLION TO HELP SYRIAN REFUGEES AND THOSE DISPLACED WITHIN SYRIA, and I am proud that that makes us to date the largest single donor from external in the world.

    So today February 4, 2016  the United States is announcing our latest contribution, which is over $925 million. This new funding brings U.S. humanitarian assistance in response to this conflict to more than $5.1 billion since the start of the crisis.

    February 4, 2016 Remarks John Kerry Secretary of State London, United Kingdom

    Well, your excellencies all, I’m cutting down significantly because we were originally given a little more time, but I’m very happy to try to fit it all in as quickly as I can. AFTER ALMOST FIVE YEARS OF FIGHTING, IT’S PRETTY INCREDIBLE THAT AS WE COME HERE TO LONDON IN 2016, THE SITUATION ON THE GROUND IS ACTUALLY WORSE, NOT BETTER. AND THE SUFFERING IN SYRIA GROWS; IT’S NOT DIMINISHING.

    TO DATE, THE UNITED STATES HAS PROVIDED OVER 4.5 BILLION TO HELP SYRIAN REFUGEES AND THOSE DISPLACED WITHIN SYRIA, and I am proud that that makes us to date the largest single donor from external in the world.

    So today the United States is announcing our latest contribution, which is over $925 million. That includes more than 600 million in direct humanitarian aid to provide food, shelter, water, medical care, and other vital relief to millions of people inside of Syria and across the region. It also includes 325 million in development assistance, 290 million of which is new funding specifically to support schooling for 300,000 refugee youth in Jordan and Lebanon – meeting directly, hopefully, the challenge that we face here today.

    This new funding brings U.S. humanitarian assistance in response to this conflict to more than $5.1 billion since the start of the crisis

    Humanitarian Assistance Funding Numbers by Country
