TEMPORARY INTERIOR DEPARTMENT DIRECTORS ILLEGAL

Brian Steed, Bureau of Land Management’s Acting Director

“Federal agencies are not supposed to be run like a temp service.” – PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch

TEMPORARY INTERIOR DEPARTMENT DIRECTORS ILLEGAL

All Decisions by Acting Park Service, BLM, and Fish & Wildlife Heads Legally Void


Washington, DC — President Trump’s record tardiness in nominating agency leaders may undo months of work inside the Department of Interior, according to a complaint filed today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). The way the Trump administration has filled agency leadership slots with temporary or acting directors violates a law enacted to prevent a president from circumventing the U.S. Senate’s constitutional advice and consent power.

The PEER complaint filed with Interior’s Office of Inspector General charges that the acting directors of the National Park Service (NPS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) are in blatant violation of the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. Under that act, any action taken by a noncompliant official “shall have no force or effect” nor may it be later “ratified.”

“The law prevents a president from installing acting directors for long periods and completely bypassing Senate confirmation,” argued PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch, noting that President Trump has not nominated or even announced an intention to nominate, persons to fil the NPS, BLM, or FWS vacancies.
“Federal agencies are not supposed to be run like a temp service.”

The complaint recounts Vacancies Reform Act violations invalidating the appointments of –

  • NPS Acting Director P. Daniel Smith, who did not serve in a senior position for 90 days during the prior year, as the Act requires. Nor did Trump appoint him, another requirement of the act;
  • BLM Acting Director Brian Steed, who also did not serve in a senior position for 90 days and Interior Secretary Zinke, not Trump, appointed him.
  • FWS Acting Director Greg Sheehan, who not only suffers from these same deficiencies but also now exceeds the 210-day limit the act imposes.

National Blueways System: Federal water theft “headwaters to mouth”

National Blueways System

The provision within the National Blueways system for “headwaters to mouth” is the new catch phrase for “waters of America”.  Using the tried and true method of renaming an assault on the states to make it sound like a good deal when we know it isn’t, is nothing new.  The intent is to take over all water from any source whatsoever.

While the government is planning on blowing out more than 2600 dams here in the US, allowing fresh legal vwater resources and reservoirs to flow away into the ocean, we are constantly warned of a water shortage.  The excuses for this is that rivers need to be restored to their former states to save some fish that has long ago adjusted to its surroundings.

Since there is in actuality no critical water shortage, one has to be created.  This will be done by redefining what is federally controlled water, and, by emptying reservoirs and other water reserves.  No dams will replace those blown meaning that all water in that river or stream will disappear into oblivion while your water is rationed.  All of this just in time for the installation of SMART Water Meters which will drive your water bill through the roof.

But the issue of water is not about the salmon, or the rivers flowing free or any other environmental nonsense.  It is converting all water everywhere to be under the control of the federal corporation to facilitate the LOST treaty, and to convert even simple trade into federal commerce.

The National Blueways Water System appears to be the work of the infamous Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Department of interior, but is actually the intended result of several executive orders from the president. Secretary Sally, as he is often referred to, has been the facilitator of the massive land devastation in the Western States.  His plans to “industrialize” the western states have resulted in the decimation of our wild horses and burros, for reasons unknown, the selling off of public lands to private corporations,  and of course the whole sale destruction of water and land resources which are in reality, state assets.  The Department of Interior, as a privately owned federal corporation, rakes in the profits from this whole-sale plundering of state lands and resources while supplying minimal compensation to county’s and states governments.  Of  course the state is left with the now devastated landscape and pools of irreclaimable contaminated water.

Our biggest waste of money is Congress

Our biggest waste of money is Congress

Several of you have written me and said things to the effect that if I am so damn smart why don’t I tell you all how I would fix the national debt and reduce spending in the District of Criminals.  So, as my New Year’s gift to all of you, here is my idea of how to rid ourselves of massive amounts of national debt and reduce theinfo 2 mindless, pork laden spending done at our expense. It is not a full and complete list as this would require so much space and days of reading, that I am only highlighting three or four of the most wasteful, unconstitutional, pointless agency’s or programs.

And, no I do not think I am so smart.  I do however, think that I am highly pissed off that we allow this crap to continue.

How the Fed gets in your state

The one thing that must be understood is that the only way federal corporations who try to hide their true identity by masquerading as “Public service” or some other clever word exchange, gain access to your state is only by getting approval from your governor and directed to the corresponding agency within the state that will contract with them.  These are not laws as per the Constitution.  This is contract law and the ensuing contracting with the federal corporation attempting to gain entry into your state is a corporate business plan which has little to nothing to do with law or property rights.  These are contracts that can be revoked, and, these are business plans that should be rejected across the board.

The first order of business:

1.  I would close down and completely disassemble Homeland Security.  This monolithic monstrosity has nothing to do with national security, keeping you safe or any of the other idiotic jingoistic crap that issues from them on a daily basis.  The Economist published a wonderfully explicit graph  in September of 2011 showing the cash sink hole that is Homeland Security.  More

Investor State Tribunals and Treason in high places

Investor State Tribunals: The Trans-Atlantic Partnership AGREEMENT

A huge collection of federal corporate agents that we call “senators” and “representatives” will soon be jumping in front of Lame Street Media camera’s just for the chance to tell you how this new agreement will create thousands of new jobs.  And it will!  Only not here in the US.  These same corporate puppets will poo-poo the idea that this corporate government agreement will render our laws null and void against marauding corporations.  They will tell you that it will boost states economies to have foreign investors buying land and exploiting resources.  They will tell you any lie they think will make this sell off of our country more palatable.  And, by the time most of you figure out you just got sold out and sold off, these same liars will have taken retirement so that they can spend more time with their families.  (Oh! be still my heart!)

What this agreement will effectively accomplish is the eradication of national jurisdiction, national laws and protections and put disputes in the hands of lawyers who also expect to profit from their misdeeds.  It will sell off our land to foreign corporations and governments and firmly establish sovereign foreign territories inside the geographical US. akin to the current Free Trade Zones (257 zones) now operating across the states.

 RE: Comment on the Bullfrog HMA wild burro gather 

Dear Mr. Seley:

I urge you to select the NO ACTION ALTERNATIVE to the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Bullfrog HMA wild burro gather (DOI-BLM-NV-B020-2011-0102-EA). 

This EA states BLM is proposing to remove an “excess” 53-86 burros and leave only 70 burros on a 151,782 acre Herd Management Area (which is PRIMARILY for use by the wild horses and burros).  More

While this video is a bit hard to hear, it is excellent!  Thanks Erin and Louise.

Note the gun toting wardens at the front of the public meeting in the video–these guys are afraid of old gals and guys coming to public meetings in serene rural Redding, CA. 

 
In the YouTube video, the balding (like me) gentleman at the right-corner of the table is Gary Cadd who was on the National Marine Fisheries Service-dominated North Pacific Fishery Management Council that meets in Alaska.  He is a goldmine of information on the corruption of bycatch of coho and Chinook salmon in the Gulf of Alaska affecting our fish populations in California and Oregon. 

He spoke with many “observers” on the airplane in trips he took to Council meetings between Anchorage and Seattle, and learned first-hand that the NMFS-employed lay-public observers are kept below deck on ocean trawlers so the bycatch (coho and Chinook salmon) are pitched overboard before the observers are allowed above deck to see the fish being retrieved out of the trawl nets–the Chinook contain coded wire tags needed to document the origin of the fish (see below) and the coho have marks allowing them to be associated with their hatchery origin. 

Fishing would have to stop if the excessive bycatch limits were observed on deck. The observers during debriefing, before being swept back to Seattle, are discouraged in their reporting of illegal activity of Chinook and coho salmon bycatch–I have a friend and former student who has personally experienced this corruption in debriefing by NMFS or other government agents.
