THE RISING INFERNO

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As of August 19, 2020 there were 367 wildfires burning in California sparked by massive rounds of lightening strikes.  One of the main areas of the state which are affected and still burning is the Sierra Nevada Mountain range that begins in the foothills and lies on a long strip that is on the East side of the State of California and then rises in elevation to 7,365 feet at Echo Summit on the way to Lake Tahoe and then finally  drifts over into the State of Nevada.  The Sierra Nevada Mountain range is a truly a marvel to see through all seasons while Lake Tahoe is the blue diamond of the world.

Through my years as a child and also a teen I spent many weeks fishing and swimming in these mountains and took more than one hike into Desolation Wilderness, a granite rock filled dream in an area filled with various lakes and steams that can only be seen by airplane or by hiking in.

After spending many years in these mountains since I was 8 years old, I never saw one major wildfire from 1950 on.  But then  fires began sweeping across America in the latter 80’s beginning with the Yellowstone Fire in 1988.  While not a victim of climate change, the Yellowstone fire was birthed out of a new Forest Service policy billed as “experimental environmentalism” that allowed forest fires to burn which were started by lighting.  With that, President Reagan abruptly canceled the policy yet many years later the Clinton administration picked it up again and began scaling back all of the logging in California and closed down the entrances to logging roads while also backfilling many of them with backhoes in order to “protect” the spotted owl and finally 1000 other species. Thus, not climate change but the inability to fight fires because of no access became the nightmare that has followed we the people ever since.  With fires being a major factor in various locations of the West and also the Sierras, the American people are still not out of the woods when it comes to thinning the overgrown forests which will take decades to fix and protect from wildfires.  Essentially, these infernos in California and other states were created though decades of forestry mismanagement that relied on theories while catering to environmental organizations such as the Sierra Club and many others.

The question may arise…why has it taken so long to fix those federal and state agencies that are responsible for so many wildfires every year that could have been prevented through simple management practices such as bringing in logging contractors to thin the second growth forests.   It is because of past government corruption that was investigated years ago by a person that shared this true story.  His dad was asked to investigate the many areas of forestry mismanagement in the State of California.  He began at the very bottom and worked his way up to the top.  He found corruption everywhere and when he finally got to the California State legislature and the Governor he even found corruption there as well and was asked to then stop investigating.  Why was he asked to stop?  It is obvious.  Was there big lobby money going to various persons in the legislature who were connected in some way to either environmentalist organizations but also other players who fly under the radar?

I cannot believe that the smoke filled West which I am breathing at this very moment is still the result of Climate Change when all of the evidence points to forestry service corruption, negligence,  decades of improper leadership and politics, but all the while, millions of acres burn regularly and hundreds of millions of dollars are extracted from taxpayers for something that could have been prevented.

Misinformation is alive and well in the late great State of California and other parts of the lost West.

The Hostile Deep State Revisited

 What a person may ask today is what is America’s latest and greatest problem? From the bleachers I see down on the playing field a nation divided which has lost its way, while 95% of the people have truly lost their country to the top 5% who managed to accomplish their goal through decades of corruption, hostility and devious means, whereby destroying the very sacred fabric that held America together which had been one nation devoted to family, peace, love, joy, favor, mercy, forgiveness,\ patience, sacrifice and generosity. But how did this happen?

Little by little the power brokers came who were the top 5% who had the money and the influence and laid a blueprint which would rapidly change the very face of the America to where it is today. If it were not for criminal infiltrators who ended up in the various State and Federal Agencies, it was ex corporate lobbyists or executives who filled key positions within government who were not elected by the people nor were they even specialists in the field that they had been appointed to. Though they were there, in theory, for the benefit of the people, they ended up in those positions to either protect those corporate elites or were chosen because they favored a fruitless ideology that was part of the blueprint that had been given to them for a job that was meant to further an agenda, but not necessarily for the benefit of “we the people.”

The American dream and the people have been hoodwinked into believing that the separation of powers and the two party system would be something they could use in electing persons who would actually benefit the people and thus offer voters a say in their own government. If this were true, then why is there so much corruption in government along with those officials who generally take care of their own, yet who are also above the law and do not adequately perform their duties as servants of the people? And if there is an oath to their office, that would have them perform their
duties faithfully and to the letter of the law; why are they not doing it?

It is because they are imposters and have alternative motives within their field of government service. Without mentioning any names and their dastardly deeds I challenge the reader to do their homework and observe the many injustices that lie within the halls of the State legislatures,
Congress and its many agencies, the courts, the universities, the AMA, Big Pharma, the Forest Service, the Mainstream Media and the many other cesspools that are complicit with their own desires, along with their love of money, power, as well as those merciless and hostile agendas within
county and city governments. It is all there. And yes, it is deep,such as the Deep State that is far from being drained. Their presence is everywhere and yet there may be light at the end of the tunnel.

The darkness hates the light and it can only hide for a time. Now is the hour for the vast darkness that has spread its cloud over all America to finally be exposed.

THE CULTURE – THE COVER UP: HIGH TREASON

Finally, the mainstream media has assured us that there is nothing new under the sun unless of course a person is looking for information that is beyond the stars on a far away planet that is trillions of miles away that appears to have water and is much like earth. In the meantime, the New York Times is actually stuck in a political time warp focusing on the same old fairy tales they’ve been pushing now for how many years? Like so many other news outlets and their gimmicks, the elite 5% who capitalize on false narratives are packing away their millions into off shore bank accounts. Yes, major corruption in the U.S. has been validated but not as conspiracy theory but as facts which is now being exposed by various sources or even read about in books that disclose in detail many of the sinister persons and their devious acts whether in government or not who have held high positions for decades past and present.

THE GREAT DIVIDE

As the people of America enter into 2020 what is the course that will be chosen by the politicos, the common people, the corporate Lords, the lobbyists, the farmers, the teachers and the ministers?  Will there be more division, government corruption, cover ups, fake news, and more . Will Silicon Valley again assume their self appointed treasonous position of censorship by the Silicon speech police who are now the guardians of the galaxy?  Spare me. 

It was enough in the last 3 years to have the newspapers, TV stations, federal agencies and the FISA court in a collusive union that was meant to railroad an innocent President and then continue endlessly with a fake narrative.  What if this circus happened during the reign of one or more of our first four Presidents?  The country and the framework such as the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights that was given to us by these founders would have been lost to future generations.

America, you are now at a fork in the road and can no longer remain divided.  A divided country will not stand.  Not only has division been created between we the people, but also it has infiltrated an outdated two party system.  Therefore, the entire country is at stake because of many factors that are still out of control.  One may ask, what factors?  There are innocent people going to jail, all the while, white collar crime continues to run amok within a deep treasonous swamp that is still a going concern.  Hundreds of federal agencies, which cannot even be counted, are still crawling with many snakes and are ready to strike at a minutes notice.  Whether it be political opponents or hateful people, various government entities and the courts are on a mission to use arbitrary laws in a way that, in the end, restricts basic natural freedoms and individual rights and continues to place the American people in great bondage within their society.  Sadly, it is frequently done though a maze of legalism which is reflective of a Marxist tyrannical state that is meant to control nearly every aspect of human life, from the minute a person is born to the very day that they die.  And it is certainly not reflective of the words that were given to us by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence which stated the following.

“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness …”

However, in spite of the sweet and beautiful words here, there is thick smoke rising and a war within that is brewing and it places absolute power above the people to the point that total submission is generally required for those who are not wearing a badge. 

Are Americans being looked after by their superiors for their own safety and the benefit of others, or are “we the people” an entity that needs supervision and a bridle, to be led as a horse that will serve as transportation for the rider?  The very bondage of “Homeland Insecurity” that is common  among Chinese people who wish to be free,  has already come to America.  All one must do is look up and see the dark clouds that are  passing by.  The Pentagon has recently contracted with Amazon to place facial recognition(i.e., biometric screening) and mountains of other data within Amazon’s mega “cloud”, that is a database containing  hundreds of millions of individual records.

So, as the Great Divide thickens the surveillance state becomes more and more a reality with every breath we take. 

Just recently, roughly 300,000 Hong Kong people protested against the Red China’s attempt to extradite persons from Hong Kong to China.  Where are America’s protests since there is already a noose that keeps getting pulled tighter and tighter?  The passivity of the American people is beyond measure.  Where are those who are left to carry the torch of freedom before it is too late? 

Does anybody know what time it is?  It is surely one minute to midnight.

   Democracy or a Republic:  Why America is Neither

      America is neither a democracy nor a Republic.  It is because in a Democracy or a “representative” Republic, laws will not be affected by corporate elite’s or nonprofit institutional lobbyists, but the country will be fashioned to benefit the people, their life, liberty, and their pursuit of happiness.  If those framers of our Constitution had foresaw the collateral damage that would have arose out of the ashes because of those high rollers of industry, non profits and other treasonous, sinister players within America’s deep state, they would have placed mechanisms within the framework of the Constitution to prevent their concentration of power and sought to protect the people from the present corruption, but also the web of hi-tech surveillance that is already here and is rapidly increasing which will come in the form of a 5G electronic worldwide, wireless network to where more
speed, bondage and intrusion of ones privacy will transpire and freedom will erode.
    Example:  Are the people ready for a car which they may be driving that will automatically send a signal to a police car alerting the officer if your seat belt is attached or not?

PRESS RELEASE: Rep. Maloney Demands Reinstatement of USFS Employee Fired in Retribution for Reporting Sexual Assault

PRESS RELEASE:  Rep. Maloney Demands Reinstatement of USFS Employee Fired in Retribution for Reporting Sexual Assault

WASHINGTON, DC – Following yesterday’s hearing in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with United States Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen, Rep. Maloney requested a written response from Chief Christiansen on how the USFS will change and make better its system for handling workplace sexual assault and harassment.

In her letter, the Congresswoman points out that Shannon Reed was fired in retaliation to lodging a complaint of sexual harassment. The Congresswoman therefore requested in her letter to Chief Christiansen that “as you work to correct these problems at the US Forest Service, I strongly urge you to consider restoring Ms. Reed’s employment, if that is what she desires. It was made clear at the hearing today that Ms. Reed was forced out of her position unjustly and prematurely. Furthermore, having been a victim of both sexual harassment and the dysfunctional process after the fact, Ms. Reed is in a unique position to prevent other women from suffering the same abuse to which she was subjected.”

Full text of the letter is below and a PDF can be found here.

Dear Chief Christiansen,

Department of Interior Wants To Destroy Records of Oil & Gas Leasing, Mining, Wells, Timber Sales and Much More

4 Comments

Public submission

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Federal agencies don’t keep most of their records forever. At some point, they’re legally allowed to destroy the majority of them.

But when? And which records? That’s up to the agency and the National Archives (with some input from the public, at least in theory).

In an overlooked process that’s been going on for decades, agencies create a “Request for Records Disposition Authority” that gives details about the documents, then proposes when they can be destroyed (e.g., three years after the end of the fiscal year, 50 years after they’re no longer needed, etc.). Occasionally, agencies propose keeping some documents permanently, which means eventually transferring them to the National Archives.

The National Archives & Records Administration (NARA) then “appraises” the agency’s Request for Records Disposition Authority, almost always giving the greenlight.

Around this point, the agency’s request and NARA’s appraisal are announced in the Federal Register. They are not published in the Register, nor are they posted to the Register website (including Regulations.gov). Their existence is simply noted.

Dept. of the Interior is asking for permission to destroy records about oil and gas leases, mining, dams, wells, timber sales, marine conservation, fishing, endangered species, non-endangered species, critical habitats, land acquisition, wild horses & burros and lots more. It’s also wanting to permanently retain a smaller subset of documents in each category, which will be transferred to the National Archives, where they will become harder to access via FOIA.

This is crucial stuff. In the months, years, and decades ahead, if you get “records destroyed” responses, or a vague “no records” response, from NPS, BLM, FWS, BIA, etc., this could be the root cause.

Feds push ahead to end farming and ranching in Siskiyou County

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.
