  • DACA a Game of Kick the Can?

    Kicking the DACA kids down the road for 16 Years?

    August 1, 2001  to June 8, 2017

    Kicking the can from the 2001 Dream Act to DACA 2017

    In Politics Kicking the Can is defined as: to defer conclusive action, typically on a continuing basis (for 16 years), with a short-term solution.

    June 15, 2012 (FIVE YEARS AGO)  President Obama kicked the can again… with a short-term solution,

    Now, let’s be clear — this is not amnesty, this is not immunity.  This is not a path to citizenship.  It’s not a permanent fix.  This is a temporary stopgap measure…..

    June 15, 2012  President Obama, ” Precisely because this is temporary, Congress needs to act”.

    ——————————————————————

    Sept 5, 2017 President Trump tweeted ” Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!”

    There’s a new Sheriff in WA DC, President Trump doesn’t Kick Cans, HE KICKS BUTT.

     A GREAT (R) QUOTE 2013

    “WE ALWAYS TALK ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE’RE GOING TO KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD.

    Hmmm. 2013-2017,  I THINK THE MOOD IS THAT WE’VE COME TO THE END OF THE ROAD.”

    —————————————————————————-

    August 3, 2017According to CNN Approval of congress is at an all time low, In a new poll, Congress sank to a 10% approval rating. This compares to an 18% approval rating in March.

    THE U.S. CONGRESS HAS A DOCUMENTED HISTORY OF KICKING CANS DOWN THE ROAD.

    SEPT 7, 2017  I THINK THE MOOD IS THAT WE’VE COME TO THE END OF THE ROAD.”

    The DREAM Act (acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act) is an American legislative proposal for a multi-phase process for qualifying alien minors in the United States that would first grant conditional residency and, upon meeting further qualifications, permanent residency.

    The bill was first introduced in the Senate on August 1, 2001, S. 1291 by United States Senators Dick Durbin (DIllinois) and Orrin Hatch (RUtah), and has since been reintroduced several times (see legislative history) but has failed to pass.[1][2]

    Mexico accounts for the vast majority of these 800,000 recipients. It is the country of origin for more than 618,000—over 20 times more than the next biggest contributor, El Salvador.

    That still leaves close to 200,000 non-Mexicans, and they come from all over the world. The sixth-largest contributing country of origin is South Korea; India and Poland are also among the top countries.

    DACA recipients also live in every state in the country. They are mostly concentrated in California and Texas, which together are home to about 350,000 of the 800,000. And even though those two states have large overall populations, Dreamers there represent the largest percentages of any state populations—0.57% in California and 0.45% in Texas. Vermont has the lowest absolute number of DACA recipients, with just 42.

  • The Cross President Trump and the Swastika

    As we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know. 

    I don’t remember when I first heard that quote?  In fact, I didn’t even know who said it.

    My  known on Jan 26, 2011, was, my Christian heritage, singing the Old Rugged Cross,  the Lincoln Memorial,  American Revolution, Paul Revere, Arlington Cemetery,  the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  

    And, I knew on Jan 26, 2011 that when American Citizens  fear their what their own government is going to do to them on WA State Shoreline Update (SMP) in Port Angeles, Clallam County WA, U.S.A., it was unacceptable to me.

    And, I thought… Somebody should do something about that.  Then I realized I was somebody and I could do something about that.

    And, of course everybody always said “Contact your elected representatives”

    My shocking, wakeup  call was on Jan 27, 2011, it was the unknown  ” I could care less attitude of elected representation”,  not one of the  three  elected Clallam County representatives  in Olympia WA bothered to respond to my American, voting, taxpaying citizens  phone calls of concern.

    So after being snubbed, pandered to, ignored, scoffed at and insulted by my county and state elected representative on every concern I had.

    I DID SOMETHING ABOUT THAT. Researching and documenting  and disseminating all levels and all things Government from Jan 27, 2011. I submitted over 150 public comments on the Clallam County SMP Update, as  an appointed volunteer  member of the SMP Citizens Committee.

    My website behindmyback.org went on line on Jan 29, 2013,  after I had documented for two years, that most of my business was being done by the government, behind my back, behind closed doors.

    I identified my mission, using the image of Abram Lincoln’s statue in WA DC, and the words of Abram Lincoln. That a Government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.

    I identified myself three days later.

    Incident #2017-17112.

    POLITICAL CARTOONS? MANY A REAL TRUTH IS SPOKEN IN JEST.

    Old silly me, I thought the republican symbol of the elephant was  created by the genius of the GOP.

    THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS FORMED IN 1854

    TWENTY YEARS LATER 1874  THE ELEPHANT WAS STILL A GOP POLITICAL CARTOON

    IN AN 1874 HARPER’S WEEKLY CARTOON. an elephant labeled “THE REPUBLICAN VOTE,” which was shown standing at the edge of a pit, Thomas Nast who’s considered the father of the modern political cartoon employed the elephant to represent Republicans in additional cartoons during the 1870s, and by 1880 other cartoonists were using the creature to symbolize the party. 

    An 1879 cartoon (pictured) showed a politician grabbing a donkey LABELED “DEMOCRATIC PARTY” by the tail to keep it from falling into a pit of “financial chaos.”

    Jul 7, 2015 –   THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S ELEPHANT and THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S DONKEY have been on the political scene since the 19th century. The origins of the DEMOCRATIC DONKEY can be traced to the 1828 presidential campaign of Andrew Jackson. DURING THAT RACE, OPPONENTS OF JACKSON CALLED HIM A JACKASS.

    NOT ELECTING THE NEXT PRESIDENT

    Why Nast chose the donkey and the elephant is a pretty complicated story.

    Although Nast’s original interpretation used the donkey to stand in for a Democrat-leaning newspaper scaring away Republican voters,

    his cartoon showing a duplicitous donkey attacking a weak-minded elephant,

    became a handy symbol for other cartoonists wanting to represent Democrats attacking Republicans.

    Popular recognition of the image overrode the party’s own wishes

    Over time, Republicans came to view the elephant emblem as a sign of strength and intelligence, while their opponents portrayed it as a timid and clumsy behemoth. Democrats seized the “jackass” label, and transformed it into a clever and courageous donkey.

    AS IS STILL TRUE TODAY, IT’S ALL IN THE SPIN!

    An elephants’ graveyard is a place where, according to legend, OLDER ELEPHANTS INSTINCTIVELY DIRECT THEMSELVES WHEN THEY REACH A CERTAIN AGE. THEY THEN DIE THERE ALONE, FAR FROM THE GROUP.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    There are three other Ministries:

    The Ministry of Plenty dealing with Economic Affairs

    The Ministry of Love dealing with law and torture

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

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

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

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

Calhoun, even though, a university spokeswoman told the Houston Chronicle, “the residence hall was not named in recognition of John C. Calhoun” but a nearby street.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    ——————————————————————————-

    August 24, 2017,  Some may see this as a pell-mell rush to replicate George Orwell’s “1984,” in which “every statue and street and building has been renamed.” But I don’t think it goes far enough.

    JUN 28, 2017 – A Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the Arkansas state capitol has been destroyed

    State Sen. Jason Rapert “The first thought that came to me – who else in the world destroys monuments – is it the same hatred that ISIS uses in the communities that they go into,” he said.

     “When people are so disturbed and they carry out acts of evil – it all comes from the same place – it’s the root of evil,” he said. “You have people taking sticks and bats on college campuses and covering their faces just like Hamas does in the Middle East. In California they tore up a student’s sign – much like the same act of violence that was perpetrated on the Arkansas state capitol grounds.”

    1781 THE FIRST AMERICAN BIBLE

    “THE TRUTH IS INCONTROVERTIBLE, MANIC MAY RESENT IT, IGNORANCE MAY DERIDE IT, MALICE MAY DISTORT IT, BUT HERE IT IS.”

    January 21, 1781, Robert Aitken presented the following memorial to Congress:

    1. Papers of the Continental Congress, No. 28, folio 203

    To the Honourable The Congress
    of the United States of America
    The Memorial of Robert Aitken
    of the City of Philadelphia, Printer

    Humbly Sheweth

    That in every well regulated Government in Christendom The Sacred Books of the Old and New Testament, commonly called the Holy Bible, are printed and published under the Authority of the Sovereign Powers, in order to prevent the fatal confusion that would arise, and the alarming Injuries the Christian Faith might suffer from the Spurious and erroneous Editions of Divine Revelation.

    That your Memorialist has no doubt but this work is an Object worthy

     the attention of THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WHO WILL NOT NEGLECT SPIRITUAL SECURITY,

    while they are virtuously contending for temporal blessings. Under this persuasion your Memorialist begs leave to inform your Honours

    THAT HE BOTH BEGUN AND MADE CONSIDERABLE PROGRESS IN A NEAT EDITION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES FOR THE USE OF SCHOOLS,

     But being cautious of suffering his copy of the Bible to Issue forth without the sanction of Congress, Humbly prays that your Honours would take this important matter into serious consideration & would be pleased to appoint one Member or Members of your Honourable Body to inspect his work so that the same

    MAY BE PUBLISHED UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF CONGRESS.

     And further, your Memorialist prays, that he may be commissioned or otherwise appointed & Authorized to print and vend Editions of the Sacred Scriptures, in such manner and form as may best suit the wants and demands of the good people of these States, provided the same be in all things perfectly consonant to the Scriptures as heretofore Established and received amongst us.

    ———————————————————————————–

     The Holy Bible Was Printed by Robert Aitken and Approved & Recommended by the Congress of the United States of America in 1782.

    Journals of Congress, September 1782, pages 468-469. (Library of Congress)

    The entire Congressional resolution reads as follows:

     “Whereupon, Resolved, THAT THE UNITED STATES IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED, HIGHLY APPROVE THE PIOUS AND LAUDABLE UNDERTAKING OF MR. AITKEN, as subservient to the interests of religion as well as an instance of the progress of arts in this country, and being satisfied from the above (chaplain’s) report, of his care and accuracy in the execution of the work, THEY RECOMMEND THIS EDITION OF THE BIBLE TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE UNITED STATES, and hereby authorize him to publish this recommendation in the manner he shall think proper.”

    “The only foundation for . . . a republic is to be laid in Religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.”

    BOTTOM LINE…

    Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.

  • Closing a Civil War Chapter June 4, 1914?

    Address in which President Wilson accepted the Monument in Memory of the Confederate Dead, at Arlington National Cemetery, June 4, 1914.

    President Wilson  “My privilege is this, ladies and gentlemen:

    TO DECLARE THIS CHAPTER IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES CLOSED AND ENDED,

    and I bid you turn with me with your faces to the future, quickened by the memories of the past, but with nothing to do with the contests of the past, knowing, as we have shed our blood upon opposite sides, we now face and admire one another”

    But,  no process can work these effects unless there is a conducting medium. The conducting medium in this instance is the united heart of a great people.

    Why should President Trump  protect America’s cultural heritage?

    Who’s digging up bones on what was declared a closed and ended chapter on the civil war  in  the United States,  June 4, 1914,

    And, Who is responsible for creating an UN-CIVIL WAR over 103 years later?

    —————————————————————————————

    Address in which President Wilson accepted the Monument in Memory of the Confederate Dead, at Arlington National Cemetery, June 4, 1914.

    Closing a Chapter June 4, 1914

    Mr. Chairman, Mrs. McLaurin Stevens, Ladies and Gentlemen:

    I ASSURE YOU THAT I AM PROFOUNDLY AWARE OF THE SOLEMN SIGNIFICANCE OF THE THING THAT HAS NOW TAKEN PLACE. The Daughters of the Confederacy have presented a memorial of their dead to the Government of the United States.

    I HOPE THAT YOU HAVE NOTED THE HISTORY OF THE CONCEPTION OF THIS IDEA.

    IT WAS SUGGESTED BY A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WHO HAD HIMSELF BEEN A DISTINGUISHED OFFICER IN THE UNION ARMY.

    IT WAS AUTHORIZED BY AN ACT OF CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES.

    THE CORNER-STONE OF THE MONUMENT WAS LAID BY A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES elevated to his position by the votes of the party which had chiefly prided itself upon sustaining the war for the Union,

    AND WHO, WHILE SECRETARY OF WAR, HAD HIMSELF GIVEN AUTHORITY TO ERECT IT.

    And, now, it has fallen to my lot to accept in the name of the great Government, which I am privileged for the time to represent, THIS EMBLEM OF A REUNITED PEOPLE.

     I am not so much happy as proud to participate in this capacity on such an occasion, proud that I should represent such a people. Am I mistaken, ladies and gentlemen, in supposing that nothing of this sort could have occurred in anything but a democracy?

    The people of a democracy are not related to their rulers as subjects are related to a government.

    They are themselves the sovereign authority, and as they are neighbors of each other, quickened by the same influences and moved by the same motives, they can understand each other.

    They are shot through with some of the deepest and profoundest instincts of human sympathy. They choose their governments; they select their rulers; they live their own life, and they will not have that life disturbed and discolored by fraternal misunderstandings.

    I know that a reuniting of spirits like this can take place more quickly in our time than in any other because men are now united by an easier transmission of those influences which make up the foundations of peace and of mutual understanding, but no process can work these effects unless there is a conducting medium.

    The conducting medium in this instance is the united heart of a great people. I am not going to detain you by trying to repeat any of the eloquent thoughts which have moved us this afternoon, for I rejoice in the simplicity of the task which is assigned to me.

    My privilege is this, ladies and gentlemen: To declare this chapter in the history of the United States closed and ended, and I bid you turn with me with your faces to the future, quickened by the memories of the past, but with nothing to do with the contests of the past, knowing, as we have shed our blood upon opposite sides, we now face and admire one another.

    I do not know how many years ago it was that the Century Dictionary was published, but I remember one day in the Century Cyclopedia of Names I had occasion to turn to the name of Robert E. Lee, and I found him there in that book published in New York City simply described as a great American general.

    The generosity of our judgments did not begin to-day.

    The generosity of our judgment was made up soon after this great struggle was over.

    Men came and sat together again in the Congress and united in all the efforts of peace and of government, and our solemn duty is to see that each one of us is in his own consciousness and in his own conduct a replica of this great reunited people.

    It is our duty and our privilege to be like the country we represent and, speaking no word of malice, no word of criticism even, stand shoulder to shoulder to lift the burdens of mankind in the future and show the paths of freedom to all the world.

    Societies have long sought to protect and preserve their cultural heritage, for reasons ranging from education to historical research to the desire to reinforce a sense of identity. In TIMES OF WAR AND CONFLICT, CULTURAL IDENTITY AND CULTURAL HERITAGE BECOME ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT.

    BUILDINGS, MONUMENTS AND SYMBOLS OF CULTURE THAT SPEAK OF SHARED ROOTS ACQUIRE AN INCREASED SIGNIFICANCE.

    ACCORDINGLY, THEY CAN BECOME TARGETS OF VIOLENT AND OPPRESSIVE ACTION THAT SEEKS TO DESTROY THE SYMBOLS valued by enemies or the iconography associated with alternative faiths and traditions.

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

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

    ——————————————————————————

    August 9, 2017 QUESTIONING EVERYTHING ARAMARK

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

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

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

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

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

    Are there any other restrooms?

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

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

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

    ———————————————————

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

    ———————————————————–

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

    He said YES.

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

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

    Wrong? I said, American citizens need work.

    He said, I never thought of that…

    I asked how many of them are there?

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

    —————————————————————————-

    So, what can I DOCUMENT?

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

    AND,  FOR OTHER PURPOSES 1961-1971-2017?

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

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

    ———————————————————————————

    THE FULBRIGHT-HAYES ACT?

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

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

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

    An early history of the Fulbright Program,

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

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

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

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

  • Hyper-globalization by Hook or by Crook?

    Starting were I left off on my last post, in the beginning, the 2001 preface was redefining globalization.

    THE CHANGE IN THE ROLE OF NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS (INCLUDED NEUTRALIZING THE POWER AND THE SOVEREIGNTY OF  U.S.A.) IS THE MOST EVIDENT IN THE CASE OF THE WCD.

    2001 IN THE END, THE ISSUE WAS NOT AND IS NOT ABOUT DAMS.

    Most of the critical reaction was expected. The report represented a significant departure from traditional thinking on the role of large dams in WATER and energy development.It introduced several considerations that were not previously given much weight in decision-making. This will take some getting used to.

    ————————————————————————————–

    After over six years of research and documentation on everything U.S. GOVERNMENT, from Albedo Modification to Zeniphobia

    I’ll call my #965 posting on behindmyback.org

     THE THEORY OF HYPERGLOBALISATION BY HOOK OR BY CROOK?

     (you decide)

     Hmmm…AUG 9, 2017 EXPOSING THE HOOKERS AND CROOKS.

     ———————————————————————————-

     AS NOTED IN THE 2001 COMMENT. SPECIFICALLY REWORDED REGARDING THE GLOBALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INCLUDING THE PAST THREE DECADES OF HYPERGLOBALISATION.

     —————————————————————————–

    WE THE PEOPLE of The United States government,  have witnessed a three-way migration of the authority-voluntary or INVOLUNTARY-once vested in US:

    The upward migration to supranational structures WITH FUNCTIONS ONCE VESTED  SOLELY THE UNITED STATE GOVERNMENT, WE THE PEOPLE,  such as the European Union (“EU”), the International Monetary Fund (“IMF”), or the World Trade Organization (“WTO”);  and outward migration to the GLOBAL market, corporations, and elements of civil society.

    GLOBALIZATION OF THE  UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN KEEPING WITH THE PRINCIPLE OF SUBSIDIARITY

    PROMINENT AMONG THESE ARE THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL INSTITUTIONS  AT THE  FOREFRONT OF GLOBAL ECONOMIC MANAGEMENT-THE WORLD BANK, THE IMF,  THE WTO AND TO A LESSER EXTENT THE ORGANIZATIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS.

    ——————————————————————————-

    The downward migration to regional and local levels go and IN RESPONSE TO WE THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA DEMAND FOR LIGHTER U.S. GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES;

    MANY FUNCTIONS FORMERLY RESTING WITH THE US GOVERNMENT IN CONGRESS,

    ARE NOW PRIVATIZED,  OR ABANDONED AND ADOPTED BY NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (“NGOS”) and other elements of civil society.

    INDEED,  THESE GLOBAL NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS (“NGOS”) RETAIN A DECISION-MAKING STRUCTURE THAT IS BARELY ACCOUNTABLE TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND  WE THE PEOPLE, HARD WORKING, TAXPAYING, VOTING  AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    ————————————————

    WHY PRIVATIZED PROFITEERING ARAMARK is bring in FOREIGN VISA WORKERS from NIGERIA, INDIA, PAKISTAN, ROMANIA etc. And taking jobs away from American citizens in a very small communities in WA State?

    Ever wonder why the federal government would be allowing hundreds of foreign refugees to work in a relatively small town in Idaho?  including all of the above but not limited to, and for other purposes? Wonder no more. Many of them end up working in the world’s largest yogurt factory.

    ———————————————————————————-

    THE THEORY OF HYPERGLOBALISATION BY HOOK OR BY CROOK?  (you decide)

    ———————————————————————————

    GLOBALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY)

    GLOBALIZATION BY THE WORLD BANK, UNITED NATIONS in the USA, the European Union (EU), UNESCO, World heritage sites, man and the Biosphere, NATO, including all of the above but not limited to, and for other purposes

    GLOBALIZATION by giving away the control and use of Americas public land

    GLOBALIZATION AN INSIDE JOB, BY OBAMA’S DEMOCRATS IN CONTROL OF CONGRESS for eight years.

    GLOBALIZATION by civil service members in the USA is the Senior Executive service (SES)

    GLOBALIZATION BY IMMIGRATION

    GLOBALIZATION BY OBAMA’S APPOINTED. AN INSIDE JOB, giving away the control and use of Americas public land AND WATER.

    PUBLIC WATER TAKEN BY “RULE” EPA AND ARMY CORP (WOTUS)

    PUBIC LAND USE AND CONTROL TAKEN BY USFS  “AUTHORITY” AN NPS TAKEN BY “SELECTION”.

    GLOBALIZATION BY PRIVATIZATION, IN THE USA? START WITH ARAMARK CORP

    IN 2001 THE END ISSUE,WAS NOT AND IS STILL NOT DAMS.THE BOTTOM LINE WAS AND IS THE WORLD BANKS OVERLAPPING ATTEMPTS FOR THE GLOBALIZATION OF THE U.S.A.

    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PAST THREE DECADES OF HYPERGLOBALISATION?

     —————————————————————-

    THE HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?  (AN INSIDE JOB?)

    In April 2011, the EPA, under the Barack Obama administration, proposed a new set of guidelines to replace the two issued under the Bush administration. These guidelines formed the basis of what became the Clean Water Rule. In contrast to the manner in which the 2003 and 2007 guidelines were issued, THE EPA AND THE USACE CONDUCTED PEER-REVIEWED HYDROLOGICAL STUDIES, INTERAGENCY REVIEWS, AND ECONOMIC ANALYSES BEFORE PUBLISHING A FORMAL PROPOSED RULE ON APRIL 21, 2014.[12][15]

    On May 27, 2015, after a public comment period and numerous meetings with state entities, public and private stakeholders, then-EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy along with Assistant Army Secretary Jo-Ellen Darcy signed the Clean Water Rule, set to become effective in August of that year 2015.[1]

    THE GLOBAL HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?

    THIS ARTICLE IS 3 YEARS OLD The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim saidTHE WATER ISSUE IS CRITICALLY RELATED TO climate change. People say that carbon is the currency of climate change. WATER IS THE TEETH. FIGHTS OVER WATER AND FOOD ARE GOING TO BE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DIRECT IMPACTS OF climate change in the next five to 10 years. There’s just no question about it.

    The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim said ,DO WE HAVE A PLAN? ‘What do you mean a plan?’ I said a plan that’s equal to the challenge. A plan that will convince anyone who asks us that we’re really serious about climate change, and that we have a plan that can actually keep us at less than 2C warming. We still don’t have one.DO WE HAVE A PLAN? THE ANSWER, three years ago  WAS NO.

  • Fixing Too Big to Fail 2008-2017

    OBAMACARE CAN BE CERTAINLY BE COMPARED TO ANOTHER DEMOCRATS’ TOO BIG TO FAIL ACT

    Comment on “TOO BIG TO FAIL” seven years ago

    Is it possible for taking care of financial crisis by allowing each state to work on their own because each state has different needs?

    and they could spot the problem easier and can easily find the solution.

    ? Solving the Global financial Crisis is so complex. I have no idea what the solutions is going to be.

     THE BOAT HAS TOO MUCH WATER ON IT AND ITS ON THE DANGER ZONE. WE MAY HAVE TO ALLOW THE BOAT SINK AND LET THEM SWIM OUT OF IT.

    * Note, the term “Too Big to Fail” was coined with regard to TARP (the bail out of big banks)  A program of Obama’s  U.

     OBAMACARE SHOULD IT BE REPEALED BECAUSE IT’S TOO BIG TO EXIST AND NO MATTER WHO STEPS IN, HARD WORKING AMERICAN TAXPAYERS WILL LOSE MONEY.

    4. AND REALLY, OBAMACARE IS TOO BIG REPEAL?
    5. AND OBAMACARE IS TOO BIG TO PASS BECAUSE OF OBAMA’S 100% DEMOCRAT’S HOLDING OUT IN CONGRESS?

    EVERYBODY IN CONGRESS LEFT AND RIGHT AGREES,  to disagree on everything, SOME SAY IT GOES TOO FAR, WHILE OTHERS ARGUE IT DOES NOT GO FAR ENOUGH, BUT NO MATTER WHO STEPS IN AND COMPROMISES,  AMERICA’S HARDWORKING TAXPAYERS WILL BE THE BIGGEST LOSERS  WITH OBAMACARE.

    THAT IS WHY OBAMACARE MUST BE REPEALED, BECAUSE IT CAN’T BE FIXED. period

    PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS MORE THEN ONE WAY TO FIX OBAMACARE.

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday declared that Republicans should “let Obamacare fail,” saying the collapse would force Democrats to work with the GOP

    Whether they repeal Obamacare immediately or not, Trump has said Democrats would be forced to come to the table to negotiate with Republicans on a path forward for the nation’s healthcare system.

    JUL 29, 2015 –  ‘Too Big to Fail’ Is Still a Problem. Here’s How D.C. Wants to End It.

    REMEMBER THIS WAS POSTED JULY 29, 2015

    The scariest thing about addressing “too-big-to-fail” banks is that there’s no dress rehearsal. For all the plans, simulations, and preparations, the only way to know that the problem of banks being excessively interconnected in the wider economy has been solved is when one of these banks fails — but doesn’t take the rest of the economy with it.

    Until that happens, elected officials and regulators are left to look back at the 2008 debacle and argue about whether they’ve put the pieces in place to keep it from happening again.

    Leaders in the world of financial regulation talk about how to pick up where Dodd-Frank left off — or how to scrap the law and start over entirely.

    But in the midst of that argument, this much is clear: These banks are as big, or bigger, than they ever have been.

    “THEY HAVE A POTENTIAL TO HAVE A CATASTROPHIC EFFECT,” says Thomas Hoenig, vice chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. “THEY ARE LARGER THAN THEY WERE AT THE LAST CRISIS.”

    That does not mean that there haven’t been attempts to mitigate the problem of banks being so large that they require a bailout. IN THE FIVE YEARS SINCE CONGRESS PASSED the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law,(OBAMA’S) regulators have implemented a suite of measures aimed at ensuring that the nation’s largest banks are sound and that, should they wobble, the economy won’t go with them.

    IN 2010 THE DEMOCRATS TWO “TOO BIG TO FAIL LAWS” BECAME LAW OBAMACARE AND DODD-FRANK

    AND WHAT WOULD I SAY, IF ANYONE ASK ME WHY, IN THE SEVEN YEARS SINCE THE DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS PASSED THEM,  THEY HAVEN’T BEEN REGULATED?

    Within minutes of the order being signed, Ferguson’s team—including an expanded civil-rights division, which he had prepared over the past several months for just such a moment, and which had been in contact with Democratic attorneys general nationwide to work out how to respond to such actions—

    “The reason I went to law school is because when used in the right way, the law can have a profound impact on people in really personal ways.”
