  • In An Apparent Shell Game S.2012

    The bill in question is No. S.2012 -the North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2016

    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.

    U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK-R) is pushing a massive 792 page Senate Energy bill incorporating more than 393 amendments covering these and other policy areas

    ———————————————-

    Polson, Montana –September 14, 2016

    According to nonprofit Western States Constitutional Rights, LLC,

    S.2012 contains VERY harmful tribal government forest management provisions that could severely diminish the constitutionally protected rights of western and rural private property owners throughout the  United States

    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.

    Why would the Politico’s establishment of this Congressional Mumbo Jumbo confuse the American public?

    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.

    Full unedited comment…

    By Conservative “Lee” on June 26, 2014

    Having lived on or near Indian reservations most of my 70 years, I find this book one of the most refreshing of modern day reads

    as it places the spotlight exactly where it needs to be placed.

    THOSE IN CONTROL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

     ARE USING RESERVATIONS AND THE TRIBES THEMSELVES AS NOTHING MORE THAN TOOLS

     TO ACHIEVE WHAT THE GOVERNMENT MOST DESIRES IN THIS DAY AND AGE, THAT BEING THE TOTAL SUBJECTION OF PEOPLES.

    Sadder still is that the tribes leadership are playing right into the hands of the feeders from Washington.

     The Indian people who are American citizens have been beaten into submission so often they are at the point where they actually believe that this is their lot in life and while they will strike out at non-Indians around them and place blame on their neighbors

     they seem unable to recognize who the actual enslaver is DUE TO THE CONSTANT STREAM OF LIES BEING FORCED UPON THEM BY THEIR ALLEGED BENEFACTORS,  THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND TRIBAL LEADERS.

    A more factual book I have never read, and you can be certain of one thing, this book will never be placed in the hands of tribal citizens by anyone connected in government be it tribal, state or Federal because these governments working hand in hand, can ill afford the opening of a can of worms titled, “Going to Pieces,”

     AND WORSE STILL IS THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ON THE WHOLE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE

     which is truly sad given the numbers of times we as citizens have gone to war in foreign lands because we were told that those people were being enslaved and many of those in the uniform of the United States were Indians yet somehow when they return home they forget what it was they went and fought for.

    So what’s new Aug 1, 2016

     DONALD J. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    OUR COUNTRY’S CITIZENSHIP AND BORDERS EITHER MERIT MEANING AND PROTECTION, OR IT WILL SOON BE OVER. I SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER COUNTRY. I ONLY HAVE THIS COUNTRY THAT I CHERISH.

    As  the Clallam County Designated Chairperson for the Trump Campaign, and as a concerned American Grandmother, it is necessary for me to continue my aggressive, Pearl Revere red flag warnings in cyberspace…

    America is “Going to Pieces” behind our backs, behind closed doors.

    OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — The Elwha River flexed its new muscles during the most recent round of storms and severely damaged Olympic Hot Springs Road and effectively buried a campground in silt.

    When the water receded, Olympic National Park officials discovered the water had washed out a 60-foot-long section of Olympic Hot Springs Road, and much of Elwha Campground had nearly disappeared under more than a foot of silt and debris, Barb Maynes, spokeswoman for the park, had said over the weekend.

    “Other areas in the [Elwha] valley have seen damage — extensive damage,” Maynes said.

    Maynes said there is no established timeline yet for repairs or reopening damaged Elwha roads and campgrounds.

    Dear Ms. Pearl Rains Hewett,

    Thank you for your call this morning regarding access to the Olympic National Park. It is my understanding that you are  an “inholder” (owner of private property ) inside the aforementioned NP unit. You asked me about the repairs being done to the road you use for access (Olympic Hot Spring Road). In order to be of further assistance to you. Please send me more information regarding your issue. I would like to know if the road was damaged and if so, when. I would like to know contact on the NPS I can talk. The Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads (ERFO) program provides funds to Federal Agencies for the repair of damaged roads due to natural event. If an event has been approved for funding and the Olympic Hot Spring Road is part of event, more than likely we have provided some funds for the repairs. However, I would need more information.

    Thank you,

    Dear Mr. Mayorga,
    Thank you for your prompt response.

    On Mon Feb 8, 2016 2:30PM there was a meeting  at Olympic National Park Headquarters regarding the closure of the Olympic Hot Springs Road to all public and private access. I told my story, expressed my concerns on the economic impact to the local community and asked questions.

    Clallam County Commissioner  Bill Peach, and three,
    National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior,
    Olympic National Park local Representatives attended the meeting.
    ———————————————————————
    The road was damaged and if so, when.

    Nov. 17, 2015 The Olympic Hot Springs Road (and trails) had a disastrous flooding event

    The damaged roads and trails were due to natural event.

    Yes, in Jan 2016, the Olympic Hot Spring Road event has been approved for ERFO  funding.

    However,  Jan-Feb 2016?

    A damage survey was required for ERFO amount of funding?

    Has the damage survey been completed?

    Has the ERFO amount of funding been submitted and approved?

    Additionally…

    My understanding from the the Feb 8, 2016 meeting is that there are two specific hold-ups. identified as, the Army Corp of Engineers and  a required NOAA consultation under section 7.

    Commissioner Bill Peach, asked if the Olympic Hot Springs Road would be open by the 4th of July?

    In response, both Lisa Turecek, PE Chief of Facilities Management and Brian Winter Elwha River Project Manager answered.

    the Army Corp of Engineers must, be given time to respond, up to 60 days? Because a 100 foot bridge  must be built.

    Brian, that tentative plans to proceed shall required NOAA consultation under section 7,

    Commissioner Peach, asked When will the road be reopened to  public and private access?

    Lisa’s guesstimated was four months from the time that construction was permitted to start.

    At this point in time I am asking for help from anyone that can expedite the hold-ups, repair the Olympic Hot Springs Roads and trails, and, have public access completed for the 2016 tourist season that starts in late May.

    Tourism runs our local economy, it provides income to our business’s, jobs and income to our unemployeed, and food on the plates of our hungry families.

    Thank you for your assistance

    I am concerned for the economy of our local community.

    All Vehicle Access to Public and private Inholder land and facilities  has been denied on the Olympic Hot Springs Road since since No. 17, 2015

    May 18, 2016 Re: vehicle access  to private Inholder Property on the Elwha River

    Brian D. Winter, Ph.D. Elwha Project Mgr/Lands Mgr

    Mr. Winters,  said to feel free to pass it on to the other landowners, each will have to contact him for the combination and agreeing to the conditions.

    Mr. Winters message…

    We believe we have a solution that will meet your needs. Until the new bridge that will allow public access can get installed, the area will remain closed except for administrative use, per my April 28, 2016 email message to you. However, we are procuring a combination lock so we can double lock the gate with that and a NPS lock. Once we get it in place, I will provide you with the combination. Following are conditions you will need to adhere to. If you can not do so or choose not to comply with them, we will need to remove the combination lock.

    At this time, only you can use the combination lock, so you should not share the combination with anyone. If other landowners would like the same access as you, they should contact me directly. I can then give them the combination. This step is necessary so OLYM staff know who is approved to drive past the gate.

    The gate should be locked behind you whenever you pass through it, coming or going. Leaving the gate unlocked will allow unapproved access to occur. Do not leave the gate unlocked assuming someone behind you will lock it.

    Even though there is no public vehicle access beyond the gate, you must comply with all posted speed limits. In fact, we urge extra caution by slowing down further on blind curves. The public is accessing the site by foot and bicycle, and many people assume there are no vehicles on the road so they may in fact be in the middle of the road when you come upon them. There are government vehicles past the gate as well.

    The existing bridge does not have guardrails. Slow down to 5 miles per hour when passing over it, and use a spotter to assist your crossing if you are able to. At all times before crossing the bridge, assess your safety and that of others in the vicinity before doing so.

    Vehicle access to your private property only is approved. Do not access any locations upstream of your property by vehicle.

    Please let me know if you agree with the conditions above for accessing your private property within Olympic National Park.

    Thank you,

    Wetland delineation establishes the existence (location) and physical limits (size) of a wetland for the purposes of federal, state, and local regulations.

    Wetland delineation is also an element of a “jurisdictional determination.” This process identifies which water bodies within a project’s boundaries meet the definition of “waters of the United States.” For more information on this, see the Corps’ of Engineers (Corps) Regulatory Guidance Letter 08-02, Jurisdictional Determinations.

    Senator Cantwell Releases a Bold Vision for Water in the 21st Century

    New white paper outlines a national policy framework for drought and water security

    Read Sen. Cantwell’s white paper here.

    Washington, DC – Today, on World Water Day, Ranking Member of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) released a white paper to advance the development of a 21st century national framework for addressing drought and water security in the United States.  
    body{font-family: Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:9pt;background-color:

    An unprecedented drought last year and 15 years of drought across the American West have demonstrated the need to rethink U.S. water management in the 21st century. Since 1980, droughts have cost the United States more than $200 billion. The drought last year caused widespread and serious impacts for communities, agriculture, industry and the environment. As drought is predicted to continue in the coming years and as communities throughout the United States face significant water-security challenges, it is a crucial time to evaluate and develop new strategies at the national level.  

    Sen. Cantwell’s paper lays out a national framework to address water challenges through the modernization of federal programs to support and finance sustainable, watershed-scale solutions; advance science and technology; and promote partnerships with communities. The purpose of the paper is to foster a public dialogue and to develop a comprehensive policy agenda to address national drought and water security needs, as called for by states, tribes, local governments, utilities, agricultural producers and conservation groups.

    Modernizing federal programs is critical to supporting a more water-secure future,” Sen. Cantwell said. “The Yakima water bill is a national model for watershed management. The federal government has a responsibility to act now to support these efforts.”

    The framework document reflects lessons learned from Washington’s Yakima River Basin, where an extraordinary collaboration has led to a watershed planning effort that has become a national model. Last year, Sen. Cantwell introduced the Yakima Basin bill (S. 1694) to authorize federal participation in this effort, which will help usher in a new era in water management. The bill will help to restore ecosystems and endangered species, conserve water and provide water security for families, fish and farmers for years to come. Last month, Deputy Secretary of the Department of the Interior Michael Connor called the Yakima process a model not only for working through water challenges, but any natural resource management challenge.

    The white paper released today builds on that approach and outlines five policy principles as a national framework for drought and water security:

    1. Supporting collaborative watershed-scale solutions that are locally-driven. Governance solutions should support and incentivize collaborative, locally driven, watershed solutions by modernizing, coordinating, and streamlining federal programs to make them more effective.

    2. Financing solutions through partnerships and streamlined federal funding. Innovative water financing solutions should utilize an integrated watershed funding approach that streamlines federal funding and increases opportunities for public-private partnerships.

    3. Using and advancing the best science, technology and tools. Science and technology solutions should focus on accelerating innovation and the advancement of tipping points in science, technology and tools to transform water management.

    4. Advancing sustainable water supply solutions for people and the environment. Water supply solutions should take an integrated, portfolio approach that balances the needs of both people and the environment, including: (1) increased use of water markets, efficiency, conservation, recycling, reuse and desalination; (2) improvements in existing infrastructure, operations and low-impact infrastructure (such as aquifer storage and recovery); and (3) nature-based solutions and restoration of ecosystems and fisheries.

    5. Partnering with Tribal Nations, Arctic and Island Communities. The federal government should partner with and support Tribal Nations, Arctic and Island communities as they face unique challenges in responding to and addressing long-term water security needs.

    Addressing long-term drought is also a priority for the Obama administration. Ahead of today’s White House Water Summit, the administration released a presidential memorandum to institutionalize the National Drought Resilience Partnership (NDRP), which seeks to reduce the vulnerability of communities to the impacts of drought.

    How does drought response relate to climate preparedness?

    • The President’s Climate Action Plan: In June 2013, President Obama released his Climate Action Plan to cut the carbon pollution that causes climate change and affects public health, including increased risk of drought wildfires.
    • Executive Order – Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change: On November 1, 2013, President Obama established a Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience to advise the Administration on how the Federal Government can respond to the needs of communities nationwide that are dealing with the impacts of climate change, including drought and wildfires.
    • Fact Sheet: Executive Order on Climate Preparedness
    • National Drought Forum Report: In December 2012, Federal agencies and states held the  ational Drought Forum (NDF) to focus on improving government coordination to support the planning and preparedness needed for enhancing resilience to ongoing or reoccurring drought. The NDRP is one important outcome of this forum and continues the Obama Administration’s commitment to helping communities get the drought assistance they need.
    • Federal Actions to Assist the Drought Emergency: A list of recent Federal actions, programs, and funding opportunities to support communities currently facing drought and to prepare for future drought events
    • Drought Recovery Matrix (download): An “at a glance” overview of federal resources, programs, funding, and authorities available to policy experts, federal and state agencies, and other impacted sectors to navigate the numerous programs and opportunities available to assist in building greater drought resilience (Last Updated in 2012).

    Feds allocate water for endangered fish, leave Calif. farmers high and dry

    Wednesday, February 24, 2016
    Despite wetter-than-average weather in California, some farmers are looking at another year of a zero federal water allocation even as the billions of gallons of water continue to be dumped into the ocean in order to save a three-inch fish.
    The worst part for many lawmakers at Wednesday’s House subcommittee hearing is that the Delta smelt remains as vulnerable as ever after the loss of 1.4 trillion gallons of water since 2008 under the federal Endangered Species Act.

    the court held that the protection of every endangered species is the highest priority of the federal government, regardless of the cost. The result has been a heavy-handed, top-down bureaucracy that frustrates human interests and species conservation.

    Status: On July 23, 2014, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied rehearing before the entire court, leaving an adverse ruling from March in place. PLF attorneys filed a petition for certiorari on September 30, 2014. The petition was denied on January 12, 2015.

    Stewart & Jasper Orchards v. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
    Issue: Representing several California farmers, PLF attorneys are challenging the biological opinion (BiOp) by federal agencies used to restrict water deliveries from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta in order to protect the Delta smelt, a small fish listed under the Endangered Species Act. In 2012, PLF previously sought Supreme Court review of the case on a Commerce Clause challenge because smelt are in intrastate species, but the High Court denied cert. With a recent adverse ruling at the Ninth Circuit on the biological opinion, it sets up reconsideration of the Supreme Court’s TVA v. Hill decision, relied on by the Ninth Circuit to uphold the smelt BiOp. In TVA v. Hill, the court held that the protection of every endangered species is the highest priority of the federal government, regardless of the cost. The result has been a heavy-handed, top-down bureaucracy that frustrates human interests and species conservation.

    Status: On July 23, 2014, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied rehearing before the entire court, leaving an adverse ruling from March in place. PLF attorneys filed a petition for certiorari on September 30, 2014.

    The petition was denied on January 12, 2015.
