DEVELOPING A WINNING STRATEGY (Speech to SF Bay Area leaders)

As I travel around the country I’m asked the same question: What can we do—is there a chance of winning?

I’m asked this question by women and men, by Republicans and Democrats, by Libertarians and Tea Party members, by young and old, by rural and urban residents. My answer is always the same. We can do a lot and yes, we will win.

Now, that’s a powerful statement and has to be backed up with tactics or it’s just empty rhetoric.

In this gathering today, in addressing you who are in leadership and organizing positions, it’s necessary to discuss strategy. A good idea acted on at the wrong time is wasted. An action with no follow-up is lost. An assertion without a solid grounding in facts destroys credibility.

The shocking truth that we all deal with on a daily basis is that UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the action plan to inventory and control all resources, both human and natural, all means of production, and all information in the world. Twenty years ago the Agenda for the 21st Century was agreed to by our government and then implemented through executive order in 1993. It hides in plain sight—masquerading as regional plans, climate action plans, as scenic byways, as smart meters, as domestic surveillance, as land trusts, as Outcome Based Education, as sustainable communities strategies, as public/private partnerships, as comprehensive or master or general plans. Because it is a stealth plan we are at a tremendous disadvantage in bringing it to the public’s awareness. We are smeared in the media and in our neighborhoods, called conspiracy theorists, and disregarded. We’re subjected to a disinformation campaign that is Delphi’ing the entire world.

What you and I know is that it takes courage to fight this, and that is against us, too. Because most people are afraid. We live in a culture of fear. Global warming, terrorism, food shortages, economic collapse—these are all part of UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. More

Obama Pledges Billion Dollars to Islamic Terrorist Organization

1 Comment

The Magnified View

Posted by Yoda

“Jihad Is Our Path & Death in the Name of Allah Is Our Goal,” newly elected president of Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood Mohammed Morsi said in his election speech.

The U.S. supported Muslim Brotherhood is one of the most sinister organizations operating in the Middle East, the United States and around-the-world.

The concept of an Islamic Democracy is an oxymoron. Islamic law is absolutely incompatible with Democracy. It is a Theocratic system with Allah alone at its head. Allah’s law is interpreted by a ruling body of clerics. There is no room for a secular political system in which all people are treated as equals.

There are no adherents to the fanatic faith practicing with a small “m” (for Muslims) as Catholics and Protestants practice their faith with small c’s and small p’s or on a sliding scale.

Unlike other faiths, Islam is not just a religion but a political system as well. The state is intended to be inseparable from religious rule. Islamic law, or Sharia, is complete and not designed to coexist with or be subordinate to other legal systems.

Qur’an (4:141) “…And never will Allah grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumphs) over the believers.”

Despite that Morsi is threatening to “eliminate Israel” and attack the “Great Satan” (That would be the land of the free), President Obama is granting Egypt a billion and a half dollars for “military assistance”.

I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction,” wrote President Obama in his Audacity of Hope. His active support of the Muslim Brotherhood is a promise that he is keeping.

Watch for the continuation of ” Cultures Clash and civilizations Crash” series, coming August 10th 2012.

Property Rights Decisions: Based on Science or Ideology?

2 Comments

The “My Word” column in yesterday’s (July 26, 2012) edition of the Orlando Sentinel brings out an interesting point regarding the use of facts and science in allowing property owners to enjoy and use their land.

The Adena Springs Ranch near Silver Springs, Florida is comprised of nearly 25,000 acres. It is located in northeastern Marion County between Ocala and Ocala National Forest and they plan to grow cattle. Their website says they are committed “to raise and harvest the animals in a way that protects his neighbors and the environment.” For the details on their proposed operations visit: www.adenaspringsranch.com

Part of the permitting process includes applying for a water use permit. Last Sunday, the Sentinel wrote an editorial attempting to create fear that the granting of this permit would be gambling with the environmental purity and water resource of Silver Springs. Click HERE to read the article

The author of the “My Word” column responded by stating this fear is not based on any scientific evidence. None has ever been offered. In fact, the homework done by Ranch owner, Frank Stronach, led them to issue the following statement regarding the permit, “We know that it will not harm environmental or water resources or our neighbors.

Richard Rothschild was the first county commissioner to officially oppose the United Nations’ International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), also known as Local Governments for Sustainability.  In fact, Mr. Rothschild won the November 2010 election in Carroll County, Maryland based on his opposition to ICLEI, which is the local UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Development action plan that attacks property and Constitutional rights.

UN Small Arms Treaty & Obama’s six-point plan for global war

23 Comments

_______________________________________________________________________

A war of lies on a global scale

Most Americans have their eye on the UN Small Arms Treaty; a treaty intended to circumvent our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.  The backlash against this treasonous treaty is massive, not only because it is a direct assault on the 2nd Amendment and our right to defend ourselves against an increasingly tyrannical government, but because it also is the final act in handing over control of our military to a foreign government: the United Nations.  This submission of US military forces to UN control was exposed in the recent testimonies of Panetta and Dempsey in front of the Senate committee, claiming they go to the UN for approval for war, not to congress.

The absolute silence from the Senate committee members regarding this claim, and the subsequent refusal and failure of the Senators to have  Panetta and Dempsey immediately arrested and charged with treason, spoke volumes about who and what these Senators actually represent.  To have this declaration of subordination to the UN expressed by these two jackasses was then followed up by Hillary Clinton joining the fray at the UN on the Small Arms Treaty.

Hillary Clinton has said she will sign the treaty, although she has no constitutional authority to do so, and Obama has said he will second that signing, also an act of treason, not to mention unconstitutional. Supposedly, the treaty can then be handed over to the State department for enforcement, bypassing the Constitutional requirement that any such treaty be ratified by the Senate.  The problem is, it would not be a constitutionally recognized treaty and would not be the supreme law of the land trumping states laws and rights, but it will be sold to the public as if it is and all your state officials will submit your state to it.

DHS Local Emergency Planning Authority: national versus international

9 Comments

Gary Jacobucci/ppj contributor

____________________________________________________________

The following is the report given by Gary Jacobucci to the Elko County Commissioners on July 12, 2012 as an agenda item. The focus of the report is identifying the problem with the DHS Local Emergency planning Committee charter (LEPC); defining the problem; suggestions for solving the problem.

Description of Agenda Item: (need detailed information)

It’s been an interesting experience participating in the Elko County Local Emergency Planning Committee the last three years; an attendance inspired by going through the emergency response experience in the aftermath of the 6.0 earthquake just outside of Wells.

I recently participated in a ‘Shelter in Place’ training that was given by Betsy Morse, the head of training for the Northern Nevada Red Cross. In a phone conversation with her a few days later, I mentioned that the Elko County Local Emergency Planning Committee refuses to discuss the needs of food, power and water in the meetings; saying that the Elko County Commissioners have only chartered LEPC to look at HAZMAT issues.

She hesitated for a few seconds and then blurted out… “THAT’S CRAZY!”

As this pretty much summarized my experience in LEPC the last three years, I said… “Thank you, I thought I was the only one that recognized this.”

The last three years have been an exercise in trying to sort out what LEPC is, who created it, and why won’t they deal with needs other than HAZMAT.

After attending the meetings for three years there, are some things that need sorting out…

1) Food, power and water are not allowed discussion. The reason given is that these do not relate to HAZMAT and yet the DHS runs various exercises through LEPC which are often discussed in the following meeting; urban warfare / special weapons and tactical training where the various members of law enforcement dress in camo-gear, mass-vaccination exercises, school shooting exercises, weapons of mass destruction exercises, etc. More

Northern California Sheriffs defend public safety

Crescent City, CA – Diverse economic problems and challenges face law enforcement, but in Northern California elected county sheriffs are doing something new by holding regional Town Hall-type meetings to communicate with their citizens. Powerful networking and a broadening of understanding is the result. But there is also an unexpected bonus: An increased respect for sheriffs protecting and working with citizens. More

WHO OWNS AND CONTROLS OUR WATER ON OUR LEGALLY DESIGNATED WILD HORSE AND BURRO LAND?

17 Comments

by Grandma Gregg – Eye Witness

______________________________________________________________

The Bureau of Land Management is claiming an emergency drought and plans to capture 12 horses near the Summit Springs on the Surprise Valley High Rock Complex – 615,946 acres of federally protected herd management area (HMA) in N.W. Nevada.

ONE standard size water truck could supply these 12 horses with enough water for 21 days. They could remain in their home range “where found” as Congressional law requires. A horse drinks about 15 gallons of water a day so for the 12 horses near the Summit Springs area of the BLM Surprise Valley that would equal only about 1,260 gal. per week. BLM states they are taking three water truck loads a week to the area (see link) so obviously it is livestock and wildlife that are drinking the other 10,740 gallons each week and the horses get the blame … as usual.    Does something smell fishy to you?

Sheep on HMA

As it happens, in this same area there are two large livestock grazing permits one of which is authorized to graze 1,340 cattle this time of year. Have the livestock been removed to protect the range and the dwindling water supply? Another example is the Bright Holland Corporation who controls very large water rights in this same Surprise Valley area – the company’s president is the Nevada water baron Sam Jaksick who is also tightly connected to Sempra energy – Sempra is reported to be the largest global energy company next to BP. So who DOES own and control our water on our public land? More

Did Merck’s Gardasil Vaccine Kill a 3 Year-Old Toddler?

July 17, 2012

In June 2012 Chace Topperwein, an adorable 3 year-old boy from New Zealand, lost his battle with a rare and aggressive form of cancer.  Chace was accidentally given Merck’s Gardasil HPV vaccine that is intended to prevent cervical cancer from genital wart infection, when he was 6 weeks old.  A nurse mistakenly used the wrong syringe filled with Gardasil when she had meant to give the baby a meningitis vaccine.

Chace was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia at age 2 and died just last month.  His devastated parents suspected that the Gardasil vaccine was to blame for his illness.

Merck does not list leukemia as a possible side effect of the Gardasil vaccine.  However, Merck has failed to test its vaccine for links to cancer.

The UN Small Arms Treaty: Negotiating with an enemy

11 Comments

Marti Oakley     © Copyright 2012     All Rights Reserved  **See Reservations below.
 _______________________________________________________________________

On May 3rd, 1994, then President Clinton signed Presidential Directive 25 (PDD-25).  This directive placed US military commanders under the jurisdiction of the United Nations if the UN was conducting an action of some kind, anywhere.  The actual text of the directive remains sealed and classified.

PDD25 was originally written as PDD-13.  The re-write of PPD-13 and conversion to PDD-25 was needed to exclude a disclaimer from General Colin Powell, the 1993 Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  This disclaimer made certain that US commanders would not have to comply with UN orders which were:

  • Outside the mandate of the mission or,
  • illegal under US law or,
  • militarily imprudent or unsound.

PDD-25 of course, removed these provisions.

#25 also makes no distinction as to where UN meddling might be taking place, and no provision was included to exclude any actions by the UN within the geographical United States.  What may keep the UN and its “peacekeeping forces” out of the US is that if they show up here, they will not get a glowing reception.  No one would be happy to see them and we would not greet them with flowers and garlands, nor would we cheer their arrival.  It is however, a distinct possibility that they would be greeted with massive amounts of fireworks.  And that appears to be a long-standing concern for those dedicated to disarming the world so that only they and their armies have weapons.  It makes overtaking one country after another so much easier if you are the only one who is armed.

PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN: NOT A HYPHENATED-AMERICAN

John Wallace/ Contributing writer 

Liberty News Online

__________________________________________________________________

It seems that America has become a country obsessed with classifying its citizens into different racial and ethnic sub-groups. President Obama is routinely called the first Black president, but isn’t he also half white? To be more accurate, isn’t he really the first mixed race president? The media and special interest groups constantly refer to him as the Black president. Americans are constantly being bombarded by government and media reports of the first Hispanic person to do this, the first Asian person to do that, or the first Black person to do something else.

My message to the government bureaucrats, the special interest groups and the mass media is that the vast majority of Americans don’t care what a person’s race or ethnic origin is. Throughout our history, Americans of all races and ethnic backgrounds have fought and died as one people to preserve this country’s freedoms and liberties, not to separate us or divide us into racial and ethnic groups.

America has always been known as a country of rugged individualism based on individual freedom and liberty, not race and ethnic origin. Most Americans do not care if Black people comprise 12.1% of the population or 14.3%. They do not care if Hispanic people comprise 19% or 28% of the population. The Racial and Ethnic classification of Americans is nothing more than institutionalized racism and must be ended. Rather than helping a diverse population become assimilated and united as one nation, the Federal government is doing what the Nazi government of Germany did in the 1930’s and 40’s; creating government supported institutionalized racism by the intentional classification of it’s citizens by race and ethnicity.

Rick Perry Grandstands Against Obamacare

3 Comments

By Cassandra Anderson
July 9, 2012

Texas Governor Rick Perry announced today that he will not comply with Obamacare; he refuses to expand Medicaid and will not establish a state-run health insurance market exchange.

Rick Perry is grandstanding because he has failed to protect Texans from the threat of the new IRS enforced “tax” against people who decline Obamacare.

Oklahoma State Representative Mike Ritz plans to introduce legislation that does protect the states’ citizens because it authorizes Oklahoma’s Attorney General to defend citizens who fail to purchase insurance against the federal government and it criminalizes enforcement of the individual mandate.

The proposed Oklahoma bill is based on model legislation from the Tenth Amendment Center, the ‘Federal Health Care Nullification Act’.

Although Bilderberger Rick Perry pretends to be a conservative and constitutionalist, his opposition to Obamacare is a lightweight effort that fails to protect individuals.  More

Business liars and military hawks testify on the Law of the Sea Treaty

On June 28th, 2012, Senator John Kerry (D)MA, convened a hearing on behalf of the Council of Foreign Relations in support of the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). Senator Kerry, acting on behalf of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) obviously forgetting that he is a Senator of  a state and who, instead represented himself as the representative of a foreign interest, claims he will not bring the LOST Treaty up for a vote until after the election so as not to politicize it. I am wondering what the delay is?

The LOST treaty would in effect be full capitulation to maritime law (admiralty law) within the United States and would effectively obliterate what is left of the Constitution and the laws and protections associated with it. “Maritime law is the law that exclusively govern activities at sea or in any navigable waters.” (1)

The question now becomes: How to use definitions and terms to imply or dictate the application of LOST terms within and upon the land mass of the nation? Simple: you simply redefine the description “navigable waters“, to “waters of America”. This covers everything, allows for broad interpretations of the treaty and the law, (meaning it can mean anything they want it to mean at any time) and then include provisions that put any complaints outside the US court system.

Mixed message from Wyoming tourism

6 Comments

Marti Oakley       © Copyright 2012  All Rights Reserved

____________________________________________________________________

Wyoming began running this ad for tourism back in march of 2011 as near as I can tell.  Obviously, the Wyoming board of tourism is either blissfully unaware of the ongoing activities of  “Slaughterhouse Sue” Wallis, a Wyoming state representative who has a predilection for consuming horse-flesh, or maybe just hopes that you, the tourist, are not aware.

Using the imagery of our wild horse icons, Wyoming tourism encourages you to visit Wyoming and roam free! Kind of like the wild horses are meant to.  I find it strange and somewhat sick that the state of Wyoming would use these icons to attempt entice visitors to the state, while at the same time entertaining ideas on how to eradicate them and possibly put them on your table.

As this video was shot with the camera’s close in, we are not able to determine just why the horses became agitated enough to charge the fence and take off running at full speed away from the pen where they were being held.

Was  “Slaughterhouse Sue” approaching with a fork in one hand and a napkin in the other?  Wallis, who back in November 2011 was condoning the posting of pictures of a young woman who had killed her horse and then crawled inside it for a photo op was documented by RT Fitch at Straight from the Horse’s Heart:

Wallis Lights Up over Pics of Nude Woman Inside Dead Horse

(Quote from Slaughterhouse Sue)

“People humanely kill an old horse, butcher it to use the good meat, and decide to have some fun with it, and take pictures.” continues this sack of trash.”

Was the BLM cranking up its horse harvesting machine in an attempt to obliterate yet another herd?

Was there another “professional” helicopter hitman attempting to land his machine on a horse’s back just for fun?

The fact is, we have no idea what made them bolt and run.  But the imagery is clear and so is the message.  These animals are meant to roam free and that means free from the prospect of harassment and being terrorized as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues its deadly eradication campaign.

They should also be free of the “Slaughterhouse Sue’s” of the world whose interest is not healthy and enduring herds, but simply “what’s for dinner?”

I find it to be an ironic and sick message put out by Wyoming tourism:

Come to Wyoming and watch as we terrorize, capture and send to slaughter hundreds of these national icons!  Save this video, by the time we are done…..there won’t be one left!

Utah Garden Challenge for Suckers

5 Comments

MorphCity.com

By Cassandra Anderson
July 5, 2012

The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food is promoting the Utah Garden Challenge in order to collect information about independent food production for the USDA.

The Utah Garden Challenge is a voluntary contest to register 10,000 gardens.  The data mining project has a broad interest in any “resource” who is growing food:

“Whether you grow a tomato in a pot, a row in a community garden, have backyard gardens, a CSA or working fruit and vegetable farm, we want to hear from you because you are an important resource as a food producer.”


While the contest paints a proud face on independent food production, it is important to remember that registering with the government sets up a system to track, tax, permit or confiscate the registered item.  Gun ownership is a good example of this scheme.

According to a pop-up window on the official website, participants’ gardens will be registered with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS):

“We need to know how much food is being produced in Utah.  The Census of Agriculture is done every 5 years.  Every agricultural operation in Utah, regardless of size, is vital to this question.  If you produce $1000 of agricultural products, you can influence economic development and decision making by filling out a NASS survey.  We will only share your information with NASS by your permission.  Your response to the census of agriculture is protected by law.  For more information, you can go to http://www.agcensus.gov

In other words, people who produce $1000 or more worth of food have an impact on the food market, and the USDA wants to know about what you are doing in your backyard.  The USDA is notorious for its corrupt partnerships and revolving door business relationships with big commercial agriculture.

Food is under attack because if you can grow your own food, have access to water and shelter, then what use do you have for a government master? More

Total Removal of Historic Colorado Mustang Herd Denied

2 Comments

The Cloud Foundation Needs America’s Help to save what is left.

http://www.thecloudfoundation.org

Yesterday in a telephone meeting with the Federal Court, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was given the go-ahead to remove only a portion of the wild horses in the West Douglas Herd on Colorado’s Western Slope. BLM’s Environmental Assessment (EA) stated they would remove horses both inside and outside the herd area. The Honorable Judge Collyer limited BLM’s removals to only 40-50 horses. BLM’s environmental documents contended were “in danger,” from drought.

 “We’re relieved that Judge Collyer allowed only a partial removal of a herd the BLM has been trying to eliminate for decades, ” states Ginger Kathrens, Executive Director of the Cloud Foundation. “But we’re disappointed that 40-50 wild horses will lose their freedom and their families while our Nation is celebrating its independence and freedom.”

The West Douglas wild horses have endured many droughts in the past,” states Don Moore, DVM, who grew up in Rangely, Colorado, near the West Douglas herd and has watched the wild horses in the area for over 50 years. “If a drought was going to kill these horses, it would have done so a long time ago.”
Dr. Moore adds, “The condition of these unique horses and the range is paramount to advocates. We’re concerned for their safety and well-being during capture and transportation, especially during extremely hot weather.”

“BLM closed the Texas Mountain area, so how can advocates monitor the operation and verify that the horses are being treated humanely?” questions Kathrens. “Simply saying all is well and the horses are being treated humanely doesn’t fly anymore after the hundreds of horses, including little foals, have died from what BLM characterizes as ‘non-gather related’ injuries.”

In addition to the Cloud Foundation, Plaintiffs include Colorado Wild Horse & Burro Coalition, Habitat for Horses, Front Range Equine Rescue, and Don and Toni Moore. Litigation to protect the remainder of the West Douglas herd continues, as BLM continues their push to remove the entire herd.

The West Douglas horses, like all our wild horses, belong to the American public,” reminds Kathrens. “And Americans should speak up for them now, before these symbols of freedom are gone forever, living on only in history books and romantic memoirs of the ‘good ole days’.”

We are not celebrating the 4th of July this year.  In my estimation, the underlying reason for honoring this day has long since been buried under the fascism of what is in reality, a foreign and hostile government.  In fact, with the ongoing attacks perpetrated by Janet Napolitano and her SS troops on behalf of the CEO of the Corporate USA (past and present) and the total agreement and complicity of both houses of congress, I expect the 4th of July and any corresponding celebrations to be outlawed or seriously marginalized in the near future.  In fact, I am surprised that any celebration of the 4th hasn’t been identified as a terrorist activity.

Just in time for the 4th, Napolitano’s Homeland Terrorism Department (HTD) has yet again issued a descriptive list of just what might comprise terrorist activity and just who would be doing it.  The HTD list is of course comprised of anyone who wants smaller government, less government intrusion and control in our lives, and those of us who view the global economy as the tool of destruction it has proven to be, as possible terrorists.  Those of us who reject globalism and wish to retain our national identity and sovereignty, tops the list of potential terrorists.

The list was produced via grant money paid to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses (NCSTR) apparently located within the HTD Science and Technology Center for Excellence.  As anyone knows who has applied for grant money, among other things you have to be on board with the stated mission of the grantor in order to be approved for the grant.  Taking grant money from HTD to produce a report to be used as some kind of evidence or precautionary list, is obviously one-sided and is startling in its omissions.

It is startling to realize that when these list were compiled, not one of these researchers (and I use that term loosely here) identified themselves nor those in the department as terroristsMore

Bureau of Land (mis) Management Hoodwinks Judge

BLM Hoodwinks Judge

” Attempts at conversation or dialogue with this agency that claims transparency, but only spins inaccurate data, will only turn our heads to look in the wrong direction. If there is a water “emergency,” it is being created, in large part, by BLM’s mismanagement of public lands.”

It seems while the BLM was in a Nevada Federal Court recently claiming a drought “emergency” as the reason they needed to remove wild horses from the federally protected Jackson HMA (Herd Management Area), the BLM may have omitted telling Judge McKibben about their big geothermal lease sale just 6 short months ago, in which they sold thousands of acres in/around southern Jackson HMA for about $2 an acre for geothermal exploration.  BLM listed parcels for more than 17,500 acres, including and just around the southern portion of the Jackson HMA.

If the BLM did omit revealing this recent geothermal sale lease information to Judge McKibben in their big “drought” sob story in his courtroom, it seems they may have withheld relevant information.  Just one geothermal exploration can use hundreds of gallons per minute (GPM) of water.  Geothermal exploration also uses fracking (hydraulic fracturing), which has well publicized risks of contamination to water and aquifers.

On June 7, 2012, the BLM issued a press release stating that Gene Seidlitz, District Manager of BLM Winnemucca District in Nevada, claimed the BLM needed to do an “emergency” roundup of the wild horses in the Jackson HMA.

BLM rounded up horses from the southern Jackson HMA from June 8-22, and even though Judge McKibben enjoined the roundup in the northern area of Jackson HMA because of foaling season, the BLM was to resume the roundup July 1st.

If there isn’t enough water for wild horses, why is there enough water for geothermal exploration?  Why doesn’t the BLM declare a drought “emergency” to stop the geothermal exploration?

Bye bye horses, hello Ormat

Looking at the results of the January 24, 2012 Geothermal Lease Sale, in the south area of the Jackson HMA, Ormat Nevada bought about 15,275 acres (parcels 9,10,11 & 12) for about $30,552. Allied Nevada Gold Corp. bought 2,411 acres (parcel 13) for about $4,822.

The BLM sold out the wild horses, and their federally protected Herd Management Area, for $35,374. Most of Nevada has geothermal potential, so there are other public lands, that don’t include HMAs, that are available for geothermal exploration.

In the January 2012 Geothermal Lease, the BLM offered a total of 33 parcels totaling 94,829 acres of public lands, but sold only 8 parcels (27,834 acres). 5 of the 8 parcels sold were in the area of the southern Jackson HMA.

Geothermal leases are for a 10-year period. Annual rental for a competitive lease is $2 per acre for the first year, and $3 per acre for lease years 2-10. Annual rental for a noncompetitive lease is $1 per acre for lease years 1-10.

After the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the BLM and Forest Service prepared a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Geothermal Leasing in the Western United States in October, 2008. 
In the January 2012 geothermal lease sale in Nevada, the BLM got caught with their hands in the sage grouse cookie jar, and had to cough up some of the acres they were planning to sell to protect the little critter. But there has been no protection for wild horses, even on their own federally protected HMA, as the BLM continues their stampede to extinction.

Attempts at conversation or dialogue with this agency that claims transparency, but only spins inaccurate data, will only turn our heads to look in the wrong direction. If there is a water “emergency,” it is being created, in large part, by BLM’s mismanagement of public lands. More

2012 Farm Bill: Big (G)AG  Bonanza!

We are a country teetering on the edge of insolvency.  In response to this looming crisis, those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals passed another 1000 + page bill loaded with pork barrel spending, special grants and subsidies, and special programs that no one needs or wants and no one could decipher to any great degree if they had to.  This is intentional as it allows for “interpretation” later on when they need it to say something it most likely does not. This virtually unreadable, un-decipherable twisted up, convoluted mess of a piece of legislation will cost the US $969 billion over 10 years.  Thats $969 billion dollars to be spent on agencies and programs that are actually, unconstitutional and which will further devastate the agricultural sector unless it is industrial, pro-corporate in scope.  This while as a country we are not able to pay our bills without borrowing ever massive amounts of money.

Here are some of the highlights from the latest catastrophy from the District of Criminals: More
