Arizona: ACC Gives APS a Rate Increase on smart Meters

4 Comments

Information & Perspective by Warren Woodward
Sedona, Arizona ~ August 17, 2017

          At their Open Meeting last Tuesday, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) commissioners voted 4 to 1 to give APS a rate increase of about 4.5% on residential customers’ rates. Since all the commissioners were elected with major APS money spent on their campaigns, their votes were to be expected.

         The lone No vote was from commissioner Robert Burns. Burns has been in dispute, and Superior Court, with the other commissioners and APS over alleged money spent by APS two elections ago to get commissioners Little & Forese elected. As a commissioner, Burns has the legal right to examine APS’s books but he has been stonewalled for about 2 years.

         Burns contends that because of APS’s influence, those two commissioners should have recused themselves. He wants the rate case done over. The issue hangs with the Superior Court judge hearing the case.

Tonight’s show will be hosted by Marjorie Farabee, Dir. of Wild Burro Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation, Equine Mgr. of Todd Mission Ranch (TMR Rescue) & founder of Wild Burro Protection League.

Wild burros are in real trouble.  In January of this year, Mojave County Supervisor Steve Moss called for issuing hunting licenses to shoot wild burros in Arizona.  His claims were that the burros were overpopulated based on aerial count done by the BLM.  But, is this true? Are they overpopulated?  We know the numbers are vastly inflated. We know the burros are not genetically healthy due to the fragmentation of their habitat.  We know that their ranges are severely over-grazed.  But, who is doing the damage? And, what are the guidelines the BLM should be following according to law?  Why do BLM employees routinely ignore the grazing guidelines they are supposed to uphold?

Listen tonight and find out.

Tonight’s show will be hosted by Marjorie Farabee, Dir. of Wild Burro Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation, Equine Mgr. of Todd Mission Ranch (TMR Rescue) & founder of Wild Burro Protection League.  Marjorie will be joined by local wild burro advocates, all of whom are fighting to save the wild burros of the Black Mountain Herd Management Area in Arizona.

Please join us in sending a message to Arizona to keep their hands off of our wild burros.  The mountain canary’s song is about to be silenced forever if we are not proactive in stopping these rogue agencies (BLM and Arizona Game & Fish Dept.) from gathering them all under the pretense of overpopulation.  There is not an overpopulation of burros, nor could the BLM prove it with their aerial count.  This emergency show has been set up so that people will learn about our burros and how to protect them.  There are strong voices of haters joining together to spell the end of this magnificent herd from Black Mountain HMA.  We cannot let this happen.

Good Wolves and Other Fables: Part 2

1 Comment

OPINION: Part 2

__________________________________________________________

The Southwest is the area where Canadian and Mexican wolves mostly likely will meet and crossbreed. According to USFWS documents, the Mexican wolf’s inbreeding contributes to small litter sizes and low pup-survival rates. Cross-breeding with the non-native Canadian wolves would “solve” the Mexican wolf’s gene pool problem. Call it a “nonessential experimental Mexican wolf subspecies.” Or call it what it is—a bigger crossbred “Mexican” gray wolf.

Matt Cronin, a University of Alaska, Fairbanks and research professor of animal genetics, addressed USFWS officials at their Public Hearing Concerning Mexican Wolves in Arizona on December 3, 2013. He told the panel:

“. . . Mexican wolves went through a very large bottleneck. They don’t represent the original population. They came from a small Canis population. Assessing the subspecies is somewhat futile in that respect.

“. . . subspecies, in general, are basically a subjective category. They are not a hard scientifically blank category.

“. . . this phenomenon of naming species and subspecies has been termed by the broad scientific community as inflation, splitting things into groups with the intent of granting conservation, again. The entire scientific community outside of the wildlife is recognizing this. And it’s very important that we realize that subspecies as a scientific category is subjective. It’s not definitive. The scientific community agrees on it.

“ . . . I suggest you use the entire body of science and the recent discrediting of subspecies that have been listed and reconsider the science. . .”

Clear the Bench going after corruption in the legal system full blast

Names judges, crooked attorneys and provides laundry list of misdoings

Clear the Bench Arizona, announces its mission and call to action

Phoenix, August 25, 2014: Clear the Bench Arizona is seeking to make a difference and expose the issues and concerns involving the judicial and state bar systems. Its mission statement is:

“Toward the end that the Arizona judiciary remains impartial, apolitical, and able to dispense justice, we are organized to hold all judges, courts, commissioners, court officers and personnel accountable to the People and Constitutions of Arizona and the United States.”

On October 1, 2014, the organization will begin publishing information on judges that are up for retention and setting its first meeting of the Arizona Judicial Advisory Board, an independent group of people who will take in complaints from the public, investigate and make recommendations to the legislature for possible impeachment. Clear the Bench will also provide information regularly on its website so voters can have another source to determine the retention of judges until the election of judges can be reinstated in all counties in Arizona. The existing Commission has repeatedly ignored valid complaints on judges.In addition to addressing the current corruption in the system by a small but powerful group of individuals, Clear the Bench has two main goals it believes are necessary to achieve future justice in the system-

  • the election of judges in all jurisdictions and,
  • the abolishment of the “non-profit” State Bar of Arizona.

Clear the Bench Arizona is a growing organization that unites people from all over Arizona and from all walks of life, political positions and educational levels. Most of those involved have been victims of the system and want accountability. What members have found is that there is a small group of people controlling the legal system and profiting from their actions. The names of these people and the information are already in the hands of those at the state and national level and we are continuing to provide information as it comes in. Additional information about the statements below can be found on the website or obtained through documents we can provide. Attorneys in Arizona are afraid to represent victims due to the corruption in the Arizona State Bar and with select judges and they have gone so far to disbar attorneys who have tried to come to the clients’ aid after they were victimized.

The message has been clear— cross us and we will destroy you. Clear the Bench Arizona is fighting back!

The Arizona Supreme Court is attempting to deflect scrutiny by creating the ‘move along, nothing to see here’ commissions, offices or committees including the Independent Bar Counsel office. The “Independent Bar Counsel” has already been ignored in order to execute a politically motivated attack on an attorney that represented parties against former State Bar President Edward Novak, a person that appears regularly throughout state bar and court committees including the recent appointment as Chair of the committee that decides who gets admitted to practice law in Arizona. Ed Novak represented Arthur Anderson in the Baptist Foundation litigation.

After getting wind of numerous efforts in the works to disband the State Bar of Arizona, a Task Force was formed to “study” the structure but as usual, the same players are placed on the group, such as Novak, likely guaranteeing their interests will continue to be protected. Betsey Bayless, who led the “criminal defense fund” for Donald Stapley, Jr. while he was a sitting supervisor and she was being paid to head the Maricopa County Integrated Health System and Grant Woods, attorney for Conley Wolfswinkel, are also part of that Task Force as are John Phelps and Justice Rebecca Berch who brought in out-of-state “attorneys” to pursue the former Maricopa County Attorney.

The “Attorney Regulation Advisory Committee” has the very person who “decides” attorney discipline, Judge William O’Neil, as its Vice Chair. William O’Neil has been involved in numerous questionable dealings himself as detailed in the Arizona Republic and refused to remove himself from the disciplinary proceedings against the former Maricopa County Attorney and his assistants including filing false or misleading pleadings about his involvement in related investigations. He has disbarred or suspended numerous attorneys including targeting attorneys based on his religious beliefs except has spared a few represented by insiders including Novak, putting his friends on panels without disclosing their relationship.

Other information of note that Clear the Bench is actively pursuing at all levels includes: More

SCOTUS & Eric Holder: Its political pimpin’ pimpin’, man!

10 Comments

Marti Oakley    ©     Copyright 2012- All Rights Reserved

Note:  I wrote this article last night in anticipation of what I was sure would be the results of SCOTUS….unfortunatley I was absolutely correct in my predicition on the outcome of Citizens v Obamacare.  The Court voted to uphold this unconstitional assault on America.  Just one more reason this court needs to be rendered defunct.

____________________________________________________________________

For a portion of this afternoon, I flipped back and forth between the tedious and twisted up oral arguments in the Supreme Court for and against Obamacare and the political pimping going on, on MSNBC about the pending vote of [contempt of congress] against Eric Holder, the US Attorney General. MSNBC is of course the lefts’ counter to FAUX News on the right, and these days has about as much credibility.

Those magic black robes!

I doubt there are any of us out here who think or believe that Obamacare is even remotely constitutional. Yet the Supreme’s and the attorney’s talked endlessly about whether or not the penalty tax was really a tax or just a penalty while every one of them knew it was a penalty tax meant to raise revenue and to coerce unwilling individuals into a system they don’t want to be a part of.  Simply put:  It is legislative extortion meant to raise revenue or, involuntary forced compliance which will also raise revenue.

At one point, the argument from the bench was that Social Security was also a tax that everyone had to pay. Only that isn’t really true, and neither is it true in regards to Obamacare. I have no intentions of getting into this any further except to say that Obamacare is a direct assault on individual rights and is clearly unconstitutional from start to finish. Congress knew it when they passed it and the president knew it when he signed it into law. The Supreme’s also know this and I can hardly wait to hear the convoluted rationale to be given to explain why they did not declare the entire mess unconstitutional. But I have no doubt that they will uphold this unconstitutional assault on the public.

I consider this to be Citizens v Obamacare opinion which will rival the Citizens v United for position #1 on the greatest failures of this court to defend and protect the Constitution for the people of the United States.

SCOTUS on illegal immigration

4 Comments

______________________________________________________________________

On June 25th, 2012, the Supreme Court issued its final ruling on SB 1070, the law passed by Arizona to deal with illegal immigration that has been not only allowed by the federal government, but also encouraged.  The court struck down three of the primary points of the legislation, yet left one standing: Police can inquire about immigration status if an individual is being investigated for a criminal act, while they have him/her in custody.

SCOTUS went on to rule that the individual in question cannot be held longer than usual while that investigation occurs, but issued no guidelines on how long [usual] is, or could be.  This blatant omission of course is laying the groundwork for subsequent lawsuits brought by illegal immigrants in the future who will claim abuse.

It is alleged that the private prison industry which is flourishing in states like Arizona, actually wrote the legislation in anticipation of greater numbers of prisoners from which greater profits could be made.  This is more than likely, true.  The private corporate prison is a fast growing business in the US as these corporations engage in human trafficking for profit.  I cannot think of any other way to efficiently describe what the business is of these prisons, otherwise.

SCOTUS’ main contention was that the States cannot overstep the Federal government to deal with illegal immigration.  That is the job of the federale’s.  Only they aren’t doing their job and have not for more than two decades as the US has been steadily colonized by illegal immigrants who have found protection and privilege provided by the same agencies charged with defending our borders from just such an influx of illegal residents.

From the newly and constantly revised US Code & Title 8, regarding defense of our inland and coastal borders and just whom is charged with defending that border, we find this revision in the code: More

Arizona: HB 1070 vs Goliath

____________________________________________________________________

Arizona bill HB 1070, a bill confirming the right of the state of Arizona to deal directly with illegal immigration, was immediately challenged by the DoJ.  The state was sued by the so-called [Justice Department] for infringing on what the DoJ claimed was a right reserved to the federal government, only.  In July of 2010, the DoJ filed suit against Arizona in an effort to strike down the law, effectively leaving the state defenseless against the onslaught of uncontrolled illegal immigration from Mexico coming into the state.

The murder of US citizens, kidnappings and terrorizing of communities along the Arizona/Mexico border, in fact across the entire border, while border patrol agents continue to be prosecuted for doing their jobs has exacerbated the already high tensions in these communities.

The one thing the DoJ and Attorney General Holder seem to have overlooked, is their own responsibility in this matter; but they need not worry.  The former US Code & Title 8, used to read that the AG and subsequently the Secretary of Homeland Security were charged with defending our borders, especially in the event of a mass influx of illegal immigrants.  This was the US Code until recently:

Title 8 Chapter 12: Subchapter 1103   1103. Powers and duties of the Secretary, the Under Secretary, and the Attorney General    

5) He shall have the power and duty to control and guard the boundaries and borders of the United States against the illegal entry of aliens and shall, in his discretion, appoint for that purpose such number of employees of the Service as to him shall appear necessary and proper.  

(10) In the event the Attorney General determines that an actual or imminent mass influx of aliens arriving off the coast of the United States, or near a land border, presents urgent circumstances requiring an immediate Federal response, the Attorney General may authorize any State or local law enforcement officer, with the consent of the head of the department, agency, or establishment under whose jurisdiction the individual is serving, to perform or exercise any of the powers, privileges, or duties conferred or imposed by this chapter or regulations issued there under upon officers or employees of the Service.

Ancient Graffiti, the Search for Atlantis, and the Internet’s Light

OPINION

I stumbled across a footnote for the Great Atlantis Search in an old Arizona Highways article (Circa 1940s)—“Ancient Manuscripts on American Stone” by William Coxon—one afternoon while looking for something to read in a waiting room in Houston, Texas.  
 
Coxon, a photographer and archaeologist who died in Arizona in 1963, traveled to Mexico in the late Thirties and stopped by the Mazatlan tourist information center to gather information for a presentation for the locals when he returned home. While there, he encountered Don Manuel, an archaeologist and Aztec who researched ancient history; his in particular. Finding out Coxon was from Arizona, he asked him to take some pictures of certain petroglyphs there when he got home and send them to him and, if he would come by his office the following day, they would talk about it. 

Coxon wrote he wasn’t sure what petroglyphs Don Manuel was talking about, and so borrowed some information at the hotel where he was staying. The next day he met with Manuel and told him he was sure there were no petroglyphs in Arizona. It was then Manuel relayed to him his Aztec legend: 

“. . . according to the legends of my ancestors, the Nahuatl tribes came to this continent from Atlantis, and crossed overland to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake. Later, they migrated from there to the Valley of the River Gila, and established their first capital. After living there several centuries, they migrated onto the Mexican Plateau. You will find their petroglyphs in Arizona.” 

When Coxon returned to his hometown, he made a talk to the Rotary about his trip, spoke of his encounter with Don Manuel, and asked that if anyone had seen petroglyphs of this nature to let him know after the meeting. To his surprise, several men approached and told him where he could find them.
