A Bad Day for Municipality-Bureaucratic Overreach

________________________________________________

Just in case there are a number of property rights advocates out there who are farmers, ranchers, and others who own private property, there is light at the end of the tunnel for you because of a recent landmark Supreme Court case which favored private property owners. (Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 1447.)

In the ruling which was argued by the Pacific Legal Foundation(PLF), Sacramento, on behalf of Coy Koontz, governments, may owe compensation to property owners who are denied permits to develop their land. In effect, the ruling was a very serious blow to local governments and their vast municipality-bureaucratic overreach. In this case, the St. Johns River Water Dept. was stripped of its sainthood…demoted. It was a bad day.

An agencies requirements to pay fees or other payments as a condition of permit approvals will now be subject to heightened scrutiny. The decision becomes a revolutionary change in the law.

In the 18 year old battle, Florida declared much of the Koontz 15 acre parcel as protected wetlands and this became the basis of a “takings” claim which is a term used when government either denies a person the use of their land or requires them to give up some of their land, or else pay money to protect wetlands elsewhere which was in the case of Koontz.

Well, it didn’t fly and the extortionate demands were thrown a curve. Paul Beard, principal attorney with the PLF, who argued Koontz’s appeal, said the decision “raises the bar for governments to extract money from owners of land, homes or businesses, even if it may be to serve the public good.” Paul Beard went on to say, “This case reaffirms the principle that government must show a connection between what it asks for and what the property owner wants to do. Governments don’t have Carte Blanche any more to say, ‘Give us $100,000 and we’ll give you a permit.’

In summary, municipal empires have regularly used encroaching environmentalism and administrative law to bully their way into property rights disputes. A planning hierarchy such as St. Johns River has now been shown to be an unjust government entity which far exceeded its bounds. The U. S. Supreme Court ruling is a victory for those advocates of private property rights.

The California legislature now aims to tighten vaccine mandates even
if vaccines are unsafe, but for now, religious exemptions or a doctor’s note may be included as part of an exemption. Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein are talking about going one step further and removing the religious exemption. In spite of this, there still remains many grave concerns concerning mandated vaccines that have not been fully tested and which have been part of the “fast tracked” program.

One of the most controversial issues for many years has been that of28056_1th
autism. For now, there has been at least 30 studies which suggest a
link between vaccines and autism.

While studies have shown that autism, Alzheimer’s, allergies, asthma
– and other chronic ailments plague people who live in Metro-America, this fact is mostly nonexistent among the Amish who are those grassy rooted farm boys and girls from yesteryear. The “experts” express
complete bafflement about this fact. More

Mandatory Vaccination for Adults: Wasn’t this one of those internet “myths”?

8 Comments

strip bannernew-logo25Marti Oakley

_____________________________________

What Will Be Considered Mandatory
The Federal Government’s proposed mandatory health insurance will mean mandatory vaccinations/immunizations. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) says that for anyone who refuses to keep up-to-date vaccinations, under the new health reform, you will not be able to obtain any health care you may need until immunizations are current.

_________________________________________

The federal mandate forcing vaccinations against your will, has now been entered into the Federal Register. You have until March 9, 2015 to comment before they arbitrarily enter this as a new “law”.

Bear in mind that no matter how many of us object to this assault on our 59203_518492681544067_1036204037_npersons, the end result is that they WILL register this as “law”. The entry into the federal register is simply a formality that allows them to gauge just how much interest and opposition there is to what they are planning. As we have seen in the past regarding other issues, comments expressing opposition to their plans are purged from the comments section by the thousands. Do not let this deter you. If your comment is scrubbed, comment again.

Bear in mind, that because this is part of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Congress, their staffs, government employees, including those attempting to pass this into law through rule-making agencies, are all exempt from these rules. The very people implementing this have been guaranteed that they will not be subject to it.

The very fact that the Constitution demands that all laws be applied equally, and, the fact that congress exempted themselves and so many others from it in violation of that demand, makes this “law” null and void as if it had never existed.  Yet, the Supreme Court decided to ignore that in its ruling.

This begs the question: “If vaccines are so safe and effective, why wouldn’t those attempting to pass this into law be the first to line up to receive vaccines?” Have you noticed that none of the public officials, not one congressman or even the president has made any indication that they have, or will, get vaccinated, against anything? Neither have any of those who are attempting to pass this rule (law). More

Minnesota bills to limit conscientious belief exemption

7 Comments

 

logo-new

The recent outbreak of measles has been all over the news recently, and anyone who believes in the freedom of informed choice on a question of vaccinations is proclaimed an hysterical “anti-vaxxer,” when the science clearly advises caution.

Many states have laws that allow patients to exempt themselves from vaccinations based on personal, philosophical, or religious beliefs. That way, parents who are wary of government-mandated vaccination schedules can make their own informed decisions about their family’s health.

But the Minnesota legislature is considering two bills, SF 380 and HF 393, that would eliminate the conscientious belief exemption, making it more difficult for concerned parents to protect their children.

Tonight, our guest will be Gail Fagan, spokesperson for Help Alberta’s Wildies (HAW), a group of concerned Canadians who have been fighting to save the remaining wild horses, called “wildies,” in Alberta, Canada.  The Alberta government’s Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) is their equivalent of our Bureau of Land Management.

This group was founded by Darrell Glover, who flew over the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and took aerial photos.  He was shocked at the loss of foals and yearlings he saw, yet last year, the Alberta government was going to capture and send to slaughter approximately 200 horses.  Glover exposed the lack of credible data by the ESRD.  The response from the public was amazing.  People volunteered, protested, camped out in -30 C weather, brought trailers full of hay, took bales on snowmobiles to the starving horses to draw them away from the traps. 5 people were arrested.  But in the end, only about 15 horses were taken.

Find out why things are so different this year, as another cull is currently taking place.  Could this happen here?

“The child support recovery system routinely stops the transfer of tens of thousands of dollars each month, paid by parents, holding those funds indefinitely and with out explanation. The result is that the paying parent is sent letters informing them that they will have their drivers license taken, along with their vehicle and will be jailed. These letters originate from the very same offices that have received the child support payments on behalf of the parent, but who have, intentionally refused to transfer the funds to the families they were meant for.

Sustainable Cowboys or Welfare Ranchers of the American West?

Report analyzes taxpayer bailout of U.S. public lands ranching [Part II of a series on ranchers]

by Vickery Eckhoff

Cliven-Bundy-on-Horseback-e1423775080754-620x264 Public lands livestock operators each cost taxpayers nearly a quarter of a million dollars in subsidies over the last decade. (AP Photo/Las Vegas Review-Journal, John Locher)

Five hundred million dollars[1]. That’s what 21,000[2] ranchers who graze their livestock on America’s iconic western rangelands are estimated to have cost US taxpayers in 2014 — and every year for the past decade. This averages out to an annual taxpayer subsidy of $23,809 per rancher — approximately a quarter of a million dollars each since 2005. So why does this small subset, representing just 2.7% of US livestock producers, protest the “welfare rancher” label?

 The public lands grazing program is welfare.

That $23,809 — and it’s a lowball figure — is a form of public assistance similar to other welfare programs. The only difference is, it doesn’t arrive as a check in the mail. It instead represents a loss covered by taxpayers: the very large difference between what public lands ranchers pay in fees to the US government and what public lands grazing costs taxpayers every year. But it’s still a subsidy, as a newly updated economic analysis, Costs and Consequences: The Real Price of Livestock Grazing on America’s Public Lands, makes clear. And the recipients aren’t low income; a large number are millionaires and some are billionaires and multi-billion dollar corporations. Cattle barons, if you will.

Public lands ranching costs western ecosystems, wildlife and taxpayers.

“Several federal agencies permit livestock grazing on public lands in the United States, the largest being the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Department of Agriculture’s United States Forest Service (USFS).

The vast majority of livestock grazing on BLM and USFS rangelands occurs in the 11 western states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Rangelands are non-irrigated and generally have vegetation that consists mostly of grasses, herbs and/or shrubs. They are different from pastureland, which may periodically be planted, fertilized, mowed or irrigated.”

The Durbin/DeLauro Food Safety Nightmare Returns: Now They come for your Supplements and Vitamins!

Leave a comment

strip bannernew-logo25Marti Oakley

______________________________________

DeLauro and Durbin are selling their new efforts to redefine supplements and vitamins so that only big pharma can manufacture and sell them.  They are calling it the Food Safety Act 2015.  Excuse me!  Didn’t we just do this fake food safety thing about five years ago?  The cost of this horrendously disastrous bill was billions.  Now Obama is asking for another 1.6 billion to further exacerbate the issue with a new round of fake food safety?

No, no, NOThese bills will do two things:  1) Create another monolithic, uncontrollable secretive agency that will work in favor of globalism and against American food producers, and 2) it will be used to redefine vitamins and supplements as a medicine so that this market sector can be monopolized by big pharma.

Depending on where you get your information, the supplement industry generates 28-30 billion a year in sales. BINGO! Now you know the real reason Durbin is so hell-bent on creating a new bureaucracy to facilitate the over-taking of the vitamin/supplement industry. This would make a wonderful gift to his pharmaceutical donors.

Its unfortunate that Dick Durbin and Rosa DeLauro express no concern over the injuries and deaths caused by pharmaceuticals and vaccines. These two items represent tens of thousands of deaths and permanent injuries each and every year. Instead, these two political sell-outs are working at a feverish pace to sequester the supplement industry and put it not only under control of some huge new bureaucracy, but squarely in the hands of big pharmaceutical companies.

Just imagine for a moment, if a supplement was advertised on your TV and the manufacturer said the supplement could cause homicidal, suicidal ideation. What if they went on to say the supplement could cause an increase in the likelihood of heart attack or stroke? Brain bleeds? Paralysis? Tremors? What if they admitted that the medication would cause damage to the brain? To internal organs? What if they said it could cause high blood pressure and diabetes? What if they said it could also cause death?

How long do you think that supplement would be on the market? Yet medications and vaccines are advertised hundreds of times a day; advertisements that admit the products are dangerous to take, if not outright deadly.

The Media Adores Ranchers. Here’s Why They Shouldn’t. [Part I]

The US livestock industry has enormous economic and political clout. But news reports consistently highlight a small segment of it — ranchers grazing livestock on federally-managed western grasslands — as news sources, granting them undue influence on policy issues in which they have a large economic stake.

This bias has occurred despite a decade’s worth of empirical evidence showing that public-lands ranchers — who rely on hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies but represent only 2.7 percent of the nation’s total livestock operators — fleece US taxpayers, public lands and protected species in order to graze livestock (mostly cattle) on the cheap.

The media bias seems endemic. Whether discussing wild horses, bison, predator species (wolves, coyote, cougars and bears), sage grouse or desert tortoises, livestock operators and lawmakers from western states are consistently allowed to present themselves in news reports as stewards of 230 million acres of grasslands, forest and wildlife habitat that nearly everyone agrees have been compromised.

Petition Launched to Prevent Psychotropic Drugging of California’s Foster Care Youth

In response to the current child-drugging tragedy in California’s foster care system, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has launched a petition calling for State legislators and policymakers to enact protections that would provide foster children and youths certain rights relating to being prescribed dangerous psychotropic drugs—especially the right to object to taking such drugs.

Sign the petition here.

The enormity of the drugging was first revealed in a San Jose Mercury News series last year titled, Drugging Our Kids, documenting the massive psychiatric drug use within the state’s foster care to control behavior, the harm these drugs cause and the financial drain on taxpayers.

Sonya Muhammad, a retired counselor with the Los Angeles County Office of Education/Foster Youth Services, knows firsthand the effects of dangerous drugging within California’s foster care system, calling it “a world of chemical doom.” According to Muhammad, “I have seen children become ill and sobbing and frightened of their bodies’ reactions to these drugs.” More

California Lawmakers Set to Tackle Excessive Prescribing of Psych Meds to Foster Children

California lawmakers will consider a major overhaul this year of how the california-foster-kidsstate cares for thousands of traumatized foster children, a sweeping effort to curb the excessive use of psychiatric drugs in foster care.

Legislation to boost caregiver training, strengthen court oversight of prescriptions and give foster youth the right to alternative treatments is in the works in the Senate to address problems revealed in this newspaper’s yearlong investigation “Drugging Our Kids.”

After years of growing concern — but no action — state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León said he is “optimistic that oversight will result in overdue reform.”

Psychotropic drug use in foster care is “one of the top issues on the child welfare agenda this session,” said Susanna Kniffen, policy director at the nonprofit Children Now advocacy group.

With a half dozen legislators exploring bills, de León’s staff has been working behind the scenes, attending meetings of a statewide reform group and meeting with advocates and lawmakers considering bills. More

Dept. of Justice refuses to take any action against Spur Livestock, BLM contractors who sold wild horses to a kill buyer

6 Comments

In this case, there was NO justice.  Wild Horse Freedom Federation did an investigation and found that a BLM long term holding contractor, Spur Livestock, sold wild horses to well known kill buyer Joe Simon.  R.T. Fitch, President of Wild Horse Freedom Federation, publicly presented an official government document with proof of this to the National Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board at their meeting.  Joan Guilfoyle, Division Chief of the BLM’s Wild Horse & Burro Program, was present.

However, the Department of Justice (DoJ) only issued a letter of declination.  A declination decision is generally viewed to mean that the DoJ , in the exercise of its prosecutorial discretion, declines to prosecute or bring an enforcement action.  

So, the issue of a current BLM contractor selling wild horses to a kill buyer, most likely for slaughter, was just swept under the rug. More

Why I Skipped Super Bowl Sunday This Year

It’s Just a Football Game, People!

A surprising 50% of the US population didn’t watch the 9 hours of TV coverage of Super Bowl Sunday this year. I confess that I was one of them. And it wasn’t the first time that I have intentionally skipped the over-hyped, often tiresome Super Bowl extravaganza, reportedly the day when there is more domestic abuse than any other day of the year. I suppose such an act will be counted as heresy among some of my friend, but so be it.

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do” makes a certain amount of sense, until you change it to “When in Munich, do as the Nazis do.” That adds another dimension to the earlier saying. Most of us like to think that we would have been anti-fascist resisters in Nazified Munich if we had lived there during the 12 year Thousand Year Reich, although protesting fascism in Hitler’s Germany would have been much more hazardous than protesting the corruption, abuses and hidden consequences of NFL football in America.
