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. . .”

OPINION: Part 1

______________________________________________________________

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is delisting and relinquishing management of gray wolves back to state wildlife officials while simultaneously proposing “new rules”1 to “save” the Mexican gray wolf. The proposals include:

► Keeping the Mexican gray wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) on the endangered list as a subspecies. A conundrum. The Mexican wolf is a gray wolf that breeds with other gray wolves and is not a subspecies. A grizzly and a black bear are subspecies. A horse and donkey are subspecies that produce sterile offspring.

►Issuing permits to private landowners to kill wolves killing livestock on their property based on the number of Mexican gray wolves that exist in the wild, not immediate or continuing wolf depredations.

►Handling Mexican wolves killing livestock on private lands are not included in the USFWS’s new ‘problem’ wolf proposals. Mexican wolves killing livestock on private land are problem wolves. More

Dispatches From the Bankers to the World

By initiating  the economic turmoil that’s unfolding, London’s financial Wizards of  Oz open the  gate and stake out  two roads through the inevitable chaos when it occurs (1) to a new world paper currency which they will control and (2) to a “new world government” with themselves in charge of earth’s food, fiber, water, land, money, minerals, industry, information, people, jobs, hope, militaries, and government; having foreclosed on what resources they didn’t already own.”

PART  2

The bankers have  begun to put up billboards for the world in places like the Middle East that say: “When we want you into our global financial boat, it’s better to get in than to try to rock it, or row your own.”

What does all this have to do with Cyprus?

It’s another billboard for the world saying:  “We control your money and can come get it anytime we want.”  The unspoken being if a European central bank (in this case the European Central Bank) and its confederates can say they’re going to steal 25 percent from a citizen’s bank and/or savings account if  theyhijacked have more than $100,000 in them , than central banks everywhere can steal whatever they want from citizen bank accounts, whenever they want, with no fear of prosecution.

Cyprus is no mistake or miscalculation. It’s a message to the rest of the world.

Cyprus Was Not Caused By Citizens

Citizens did not cause the Cypriot or any of the world’s current banking crises.  Ever. Corrupt government officials, central bankers, and Wall Street money shufflers did. This is why Iceland citizens told these same bankers and their London enablers to take their debt and all of its illegal interest and shove it. Then they set about restoring financial stability in their nation through citizen-controlled financial institutions.  America’s Constitution specifies that congress is the only agency authorized to print and coin the nation’s money. Financial stability isn’t rocket science. It’s responsible people with the political will to take charge and do it.

The talking heads you watch nightly on television explaining Washington and world economic happenings are controlled by the same money that controls congress, the world’s governments, and our currency.

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades said the ‘tax’ on proposed citizen deposits was “. . .an alternative to a disorderly bankruptcy . . . that it’s painful but [this] will eventually stabilize the economy and lead it to recovery.”

This was a lie, and the Cypriot politicians who wallowed in easy loan money from the ECB loan sharks know it.

Did Cypriot bankers get threatening phone calls after announcing the confiscation?  Does the sun come up? Some from Russians who bank off-the-record billions there for sure and  probably an equal number from enraged citizens. Had the situation occurred in this country, banks and bankers would have been inundated with identical calls;  from Latin American drug cartels and Bubbas sitting outside in their pickups.

People of all stripes hate it when thieves  steal their money. More

OP-ED

____________________________________________________________________

Travel IH-10 West from San Antonio and you will eventually pass through Fort Stockton, Texas. Continue on and you will notice grass-covered mountains coming into view on the left side of  IH-10.  These mountains are the Barrilla Mountains. They blend with the Davis Mountains and others that  stretch south of the highway for more than a hundred miles to the Rio Grande;  mountains covered with rich, rocky, volcanic soil that can’t be plowed; mountains good only for ranching—the bigger the better.  Water in theseThunderhead mountains is scarce and deep except for an occasional spring. Ranchers there are totally dependent upon rainfall to produce the protein-rich gramma grasses for which the mountains are known.

Opposite the mountains and to the right of IH-10 west, the land is level and stretches miles north, checker-boarded by farms sitting atop good soil and an aquifer that supplies water for crop  irrigation or sprinklers or cienegas.

Thunderheads bring rain to both sides of this stretch of IH-10.  They form naturally in the west and northwestern sky and move east, raining on rancher and farmer alike. The ranchers watch these thunderheads and hope for rain.  The farmers watch these thunderheads and hope it doesn’t.

The hardest drought ever to hit West Texas began in the 1950s.  Southwest Weather Research, a company that seeded clouds, began to dissipate forming thunderheads to eliminate the possibility of  hail north of IH-10.

Ranchers in the Davis Mountains asked the farmers to not do this. They needed the rain.  Many were teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and one more dry summer would  push some over the edge. They were running out of water and grass and watching livestock die as springs and dirt tanks went dry.

The farmers said no.  Lines were drawn. Thunderheads would form, the cloud seeding planes would arrive, and 20 minutes later the cloud would be dissipated. In desperation, some individual(s)—no one is quite sure who—climbed atop their windmill(s) in the afternoon when the thunderheads formed and seeded them with lead when the  planes arrived.

They never downed any, but seeding pilots began discovering an occasional bullet hole during preflight checks. Protests were lodged with local gendarmes.

“You get a look at who it was ashootin’ at cha?”

“Hell no. I was too busy flying.”

“You sure someone was ashootin’ at cha?”

“Hell yes I’m sure. I got a bullet hole right here in my plane you can stick a finger in.”

“Well, see if you can get a good look at who it is that’s ashootin’  at cha, and where he was ashootin’ at cha from, and we’ll go talk to him. Otherwise, ain’t a whole lot we can do.”

Or words to that effect.

Pilot enthusiasm for seeding clouds above the Davis Mountains faded. More

“The descendants and associates of these bankers still control the world’s Central Banks as well as the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland today; which will serve as the financial headquarters for [their] appointed world government if it happens.”

America’s founders wrote it into the Constitution that Congress was the only institution that could create and regulate American money.

This right was signed away by Woodrow Wilson in 1913 who sold his soul to a small group of international bankers (mostly English or their representatives) who wanted to set up a central bank in the U.S.—today’s Federal Reserve—in return for financing his run for president and the right to print and sell America’ their own money.  More
