Does Mitt Romney Have What It Will Take?

Okay! I know!  I know!  Governor Romney is currently best known for Romney care, giving in (or dropping out of) the 2008 Presidential race.  But, he is best known for rescuing the 2002 Salt Lake City, Utah, Olympics.  So, because of his leadership role in that, I spent the time to read this opinion written by the former Governor of Massachusetts.  After reading this piece, it felt that I could have written it myself…only there are no national publications seeking my opinion.  It really does not matter to me who gets that kind of credit.  The only thing that matters to me is, whomever is elected in 2011 and 2012, to local, state and national positions of public representation, must possess the attitude and passion to enact what former Gov. Romney wrote in this piece.  Please take the time to read this and click on the link for the rest of the story.  You’ll be glad you did.

Romney: On jobs, where is Obama?

By Mitt Romney

Sometimes truth arrives from the most unexpected sources. Christina Romer, President Obama's former chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisors, said last week that she was dismayed at Washington's lack of focus on jobs.

By Alex Brandon, AP

"I frankly don't understand why policymakers aren't more worried about the suffering of real families," Romer said. "We need to realize that there is still a lot of devastation out there." She called the 8.9% unemployment rate "an absolute crisis."

How bad is it? Last week, in the blue-collar community of Taunton, Mass., the annual jobs fair was canceled because not enough companies came forward to offer jobs.

Defining Deviancy Down was the title of Daniel Patrick Moynihan's seminal account of how American society came to condone previously stigmatized conditions and behavior. Moynihan focused on the growing acceptance of the deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill, the expansion of single-parent families and the violence in inner cities. To his examples, we can now add joblessness.

Last year, unemployment averaged a shocking 9.6%. The previous year, at 9.3%, was only marginally better. So far in 2011, it has fallen to 8.9%. A consensus has emerged among some economists and politicians that we must accept historically high levels of unemployment over the next several years. Best case forecasts see a range between 7.5% and 8%.

Faces of despair

Even 7.5% unemployment means 11.5 million Americans without jobs. The human cost of that dry statistic can be detailed in a canvas of broken hopes and shattered lives. Workers at job fairs today …

“Head of Congressional Appropriations Get It”

Congressman Dennis Rehberg, has released a letter to his Montanan constituents that tells it straight to his State Voters.  For those of you who do not know who Congressman Rehberg is, he is the recently appointed head of the Congressional Appropriations Committee.  In other words, he’s chairing the spending proposals that have come out of Washington D.C. since the House change in January of 2011.  Please take the time to send the Congressman an email, a letter, a phone call, a Facebook post, to show your support or disagreement, with the direction of the “2011 U.S. Congressional Appropriations” efforts to reduce federal spending to “sustainable” levels.

Rehberg Opinion: The Middle Ground Between Collapse and Shutdown: Spending Less

Why are Montanans being told that they have only two choices: More government and record-deficits, or a complete government shutdown.  The Montanans I’ve talked to at 77 listening sessions offer the third common-sense choice:  The federal government can spend less.
And we’ve got to because our overspending is strangling economic recovery and destroying jobs.  It’s putting the American Dream out of reach for our children and grandchildren.  We face great challenges, but this is still America.  We will overcome those challenges.
It’s a 704 mile drive across Montana on I-90 and I-94.  Imagine those miles represented our national debt of $14,238,130,000,000.  Each mile on the way is $20.2 billion borrowed from our children and grandchildren.  Every foot across our state is $3.8 million of debt.
From the birth of our country through January 2007, the total federal deficit was about $8.6 trillion.  On our road trip, this gets us from Lookout Pass on the Idaho border to about 20 miles west of Billings at a leisurely pace of about 2 miles per year.  This part of the journey spans the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Great Depression, two World Wars, the Cold War, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and everything in between.
In January 2007, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi took the wheel with new majorities and a lead foot.  They cranked the big-government throttle and our deficit accelerated from 2 miles a year to a mind-boggling 69 miles a year.  With them at the wheel, we completed the second half of the trip through Billings all the way to North Dakota in just four short years.  They nearly double our national debt.
The American taxpayer has been taken for a ride with their own money and in November, they told Washington to hit the brakes.  But for some in Washington, that’s just not an option, they want to set the cruise control instead – freezing spending at the very highest levels of the last four years.

Agenda 21 For Dummies

I first became aware of ICLEI last month. Sure, I had heard the name "Agenda 21", but I had no idea what it was about. This has been going on for decades, under the guise of warm fuzzy names like "sustainable development", right under our noses, under the radar, out of the reach of the US Constitution, and with the help and approval of politicians from both sides of the aisle. Many so-called "non profit" community organizers are paying themselves handsome salaries with federal grant money to sue us, regulate us, and to confiscate our property rights. They are using our tax dollars against us.
The 'progressives' at ICLEI have latched on to the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hypothesis even though there is no objective proof that it exists, and no experiment that you could run to prove it. You just have to believe, because the consequences if you do not are so dire. Where have I heard that argument before? Oh, that's right -- religion! The big difference is, the first amendment prevents government from interfering with or establishing any religion. The Church of AGW on the other hand, is somehow exempt from the same constitutional constraints.
Under the influence of ICLEI and Agenda 21, public schools are now teaching that objective truth is unknowable, so it isn't worth seeking. There's only one reason for saying that: So that upcoming generations will believe claptrap like AGW. It's a handy tool to keep people from questioning anything. Knowledge is power, and the truth will set you free.

Maryland County takes on Agenda 21 & the ICLEI

Hooray for Maryland County!  They have done what the remaining 599 counties must do.  There is little time remaining to take back your property rights and it begins by running, supporting, electing and insisting that the those elected represent the people and their private property rights by abolishing their support of Agenda 21 and the ICLEI.  If your elected officials refuse to do this, then you must gather a coalition of support to pass an initiative to defund those who are operating under these international treaties (that’s what they are folks) in direct opposition of your federal and state constitutions, as well as your city and county charters.  Read all about how it was done in Maryland County and then check out how Spokane, Washington did an initiative to defund these international usurpations of your private property rights.

Soros Event Aims to Remake Global Economy

Billionaire George Soros, famous for destabilizing national economies and reaping the benefits by selling short and buying back in at low rates, is again out to remake his fortune.  April 8, 2011, George Soros will be sponsoring an event to bring together many people from the financial sectors to preach the need to get off the dollar.

Unreported Soros Event Aims to Remake Entire Global Economy

Left-wing billionaire's own experts dominate quiet push for 'a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order.'

  • By Dan Gainor
  • Wednesday, March 23, 2011 4:48 PM EDT

Two years ago, George Soros said he wanted to reorganize the entire global economic system. In two short weeks, he is going to start - and no one seems to have noticed.

On April 8, a group he's funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros's goal for such an event is to "establish new international rules" and "reform the currency system." It's all according to a plan laid out in a Nov. 4, 2009, Soros op-ed calling for "a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order."

The event is bringing together "more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders' to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new 'multilateral system," or an economic system where America isn't so dominant.

More than two-thirds of the slated speakers have direct ties to Soros. The billionaire who thinks "the main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat" is taking no chances.

Woman Tied to 9/11, Fannie Mae on Obama's FBI Shortlist!


By Chris Neefus,

The Obama administration reportedly is considering former Clinton administration official Jamie Gorelick, among others, to become the next director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The Wall Street Journal’s Evan Perez first reported the news last week, citing “U.S. officials” familiar with the situation.

Gorelick served as vice chairman of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) when the government-sponsored enterprise began bundling subprime loans into securitized financial instruments. Prior to that, she served as deputy attorney general in the Clinton Justice Department under then-Attorney General Janet Reno from 1994 to 1997.


But Gorelick is perhaps best known for her 1995 memo, written when she was deputy attorney general, that later became known as “Gorelick’s Wall,” a policy prescription limiting the flow of information between intelligence gatherers and criminal investigators that some believe helped allow the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center to go unchallenged.

One Audio Tape is Worth a Thousand Words

“Breaking News!” There’s not much to say when the audio says it all.  There are many covert groups (public employees) who are actively working to destroy; capitalism, the U.S. Constitution, private property rights, liberty and freedom.  When they are asked about their actions they always use these words; “collective, shared, village, community, equitable distribution, qualitative not quantitative results”, to sell their agenda.  As Hayek found in his study of socialism/communism/progressivism/statism/marxism/, they all lead to tyranny.  Tyranny is best described as a select group of elitist who decide what is best for the collective good.  Go back and watch the movie “1984”, where one size fits all is the mantra.  Wouldn’t that kind of be like living in a Wal-Mart world?

(As an added aside I had to re-post this and ask if anyone else has connected the dots between this revelation and the interview of Michael Moore on Rachel Maddow’s program.  During the Madison, WI. protest with regards to the State Legislature vote to remove collectively bargaining for public employees, Michael Moore flew to Madison, WI, to show his support for and rile up the masses to take over and shut down the Wisconsin State House.  Then, on Ms. Maddow’s program, Michael Moore showed off a pair of handcuffs, swinging them in front of the camera while he ranted about how they were coming for Wall Street and the Bankers.  Mr. Moore continued his rant and finished that they wouldn’t stop until the money was returned to the people and the Bankers were in jail.  Common sense tells me that these events ‘are’ connected.)

Time for Politicians in D.C. to Stiffen Their Spines

With all of the worldwide disasters in the headlines, it is no wonder that our critical domestic financial issues are going on with little notice.  The Republicans have real solutions to get the U.S. economy moving towards fiscal sustainability, but not enough members with the spine to push it through.  Wisconsin’s public workers showed what a public tantrum looks like.  Is that any reason for leadership not to speak out clearly about the need to make these tough changes?  If your child wants that candy or toy, but you do not have the money to pay for it, do you buy it with credit to keep the child from being sad?  The next time the child wants that candy or toy and you still do not have the money to pay for it, the child will still be sad.  Very likely, because you have gone along to get along, that child will not just be sad, that child will be mad!  That child will have an all out tantrum to get its way.  It’s time for politicians to face the music of what is their Constitutional duty to do.  Fix the economy by standing up for what is Constitutionally right!

Please enjoy this article which speaks to the noodles in DC, who are more worried about a national tantrum from public workers, than saving the United States of America from bankruptcy and irrelevancy.

Information about the incident at the Fukushima Nuclear Plants in Japan hosted by :: Maintained by the students of the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT

Explanation of Hydrogen Explosions at Units 1 and 3

Posted on March 15, 2011 by mitnse

Explosions at units 1 and 3 occurred due to similar causes. When an incident occurs in a nuclear power plant such as a loss of coolant accident or when power is lost, usually the first response is to depressurize the reactor. This is done by opening pressure relief valves on the reactor vessel. The water/steam mixture will then flow down into the suppression pool, which for this design of a reactor is in the shape of a torus (technical term for the shape of a donut). By blowing the hot steam into the suppression pool some of the steam is condensed to liquid phase, which helps keep the pressure low in the containment.

The pressure in the reactor vessel is reduced  by  venting the water/steam mixture. It is much easier to pump water into the vessel when it is at a reduced pressure, thus making it easier to keep the fuel cooled. This procedure was well underway after the earthquake. Unfortunately, because of the enormous magnitude of the earthquake, an equally large tsunami was created. This tsunami disabled the onsite diesel generators as well as the electrical switchyard. Without power to run pumps and remove heat, the temperature of the water in the reactor vessel began to rise. Click here to continue reading…

Sharia 4America Seeks to Demolish & Replace the Statue of Liberty?

The Islamic Demolition of the Statue of LibertyThe Islamic Demolition of the Statue of Liberty

One of the founding principles of the Islamic constitution is to ensure that all sovereignty and supremacy belongs solely to God; the Shari’ah is a practical manifestation of this sovereignty and supremacy because it seeks to establish His command in society.

The status of a nation subsequently does not depend on its number, strength or technological advancement, but rather how much it submits to the commands of God. When a nation seeks to be free from such commands, then ultimately it will meet its destruction.

The Statue of Liberty, designed by Frederic Bartholdi, stands on Liberty Island in New York Harbor; representing Libertas, the Roman (false) goddess of Freedom, it is symbolic of the rebellious nature of the US constitution that elevates the command of man over the command of God.

In Islam, the public veneration of idols and statues is strictly prohibited. This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty.

Dear Mr. Ellis:

As you undoubtedly know, Governor Walker recently proposed a “budget adjustment bill” to eviscerate public employees’ right to collectively bargain in Wisconsin. ..

As you also know, Scott Walker did not campaign on this issue when he ran for office. If he had, we are confident that you would not be listed among his largest contributors. As such, we are contacting you now to request your support.

The undersigned groups would like your company to publicly oppose Governor Walker’s efforts to virtually eliminate collective bargaining for public employees in Wisconsin. While we appreciate that you may need some time to consider this request, we ask for your response by March 17. In the event that you do not respond to this request by that date, we will assume that you stand with Governor Walker and against the teachers, nurses, police officers, fire fighters, and other dedicated public employees who serve our communities.

In the event that you cannot support this effort to save collective bargaining, please be advised that the undersigned will publicly and formally boycott the goods and services provided by your company. However, if you join us, we will do everything in our power to publicly celebrate your partnership in the fight to preserve the right of public employees to be heard at the bargaining table.

Wisconsin’s public employee unions serve to protect and promote equality and fairness in the workplace. We hope you will stand with us and publicly share that ideal.

In the event you would like to discuss this matter further, please contact the executive Director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, Jim Palmer, at 608.273.3840. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

How Will a Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown Effect Me?

Without a doubt the magnitude 9.0 earthquake that hit Japan last Thursday evening has been and will continue to be catastrophic to the people of Japan.  The task at hand looks overwhelming to those of us who are on the outside looking in.  We all want to help them in some way, but feel helpless to do so from our comfortable homes far away.  Might I suggest that you contact your local disaster Center and ask them what is needed to help the people of Japan.  The Salvation Army has many branches worldwide and is an excellent resource to give money or extra household items to, if they are needed.

Now I’d like to change the subject and share with you an article I have found to be informative with regards to the possible failure of the nuclear reactor(s) at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.  There is a lot of fear being peddled out there and I for one have learned not to go ballistic from the get go.  The proponents of solar and wind energy sources are ramping up their calls to shut down all nuclear facility development before the whole story can be told.  When the story is finally told, whether there is a total melt down or not, the most important piece of information that must be remembered is that it was the earthquake that caused the tsunami and it was the tsunami that has caused the greatest damage and potentially will be the cause for any failure(s) at this facility.

For those of you who want to improve your understanding of nuclear energy and what you should and should not fear about its production and use, please read one of these books by Dr. Richard Mueller of U.C. Berkley; “Physics for Future Presidents” or “Physics and Technology for Future Presidents”.  These publications have been specifically written for the lay consumer to read.  There are two versions in print, the college level text edition(s), for those who want ‘all’ the details, and the version for those who merely want a deeper (not university level) understanding of physics.  Dr. Mueller has published a powerful resource for the public to understand all energy resources, their prospects, dangers, futility, advantages and what there is and is not to fear from each of them.

This web article from the BBC has a lot of good information for you.  The article goes over what’s happened, what could happen and gives some good diagrams to help communicate the problem.

Please enjoy the article and I trust it will give you a better understanding of what’s happening at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor(s).

Japanese Earthquake

Two days after the alarm was first raised about safety at Fukushima Daiichi plant, uncertainty still surrounds the situation on the ground and the status of the three reactors that were functioning at the time of Friday's earthquake and tsunami.

It appears that a partial meltdown did occur in reactor 1.

On Sunday, officials said the same thing was suspected in reactor 3 - although later, they appeared to retract this statement.

What is certain is that engineers are still struggling to pump enough water past the reactors to keep the cores cool.

At noon local time (0400 GMT), Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), which operates the plant, gave this status report:

Reactor 1 - shut down, under inspection because of Saturday's explosion, sea water and boric acid being pumped in

Reactor 2 - water level "lower than normal", but stable

Reactor 3 - high pressure coolant injection was "interrupted"; but injection of sea water and boric acid were under way.

For the past year or more I have had a link to Karl Uppiano’s blog, “Rage Against the Kakistocracy”.  Karl’s latest blog has hit a nerve in me and I decided to take it to the top of my fold.  Please enjoy Karl’s rage of ‘common sense’, especially as it has immediate relevance to the recent Whatcom County, ‘Progressive’ members call to alarm against the approval of a deep shipping port for coal shipment at Cherry Point.

The members of Futurewise, Re-Sources for a Sustainable Community, and Sustainable Connections, work in tandem and collude to keep Whatcom County as their Kingdom.  Their goal is to rule the serfs and tell us how to live our lives sustainably.

Fear not Whatcom County!  These non-profit organizations have had their eyes on controlling us completely for a long time.  These non-profits use our tax dollars to  work against us.  Once they’ve gained control of; the Bellingham City Council (oops!, they already do control the BCC), Ferndale, Lynden, Blaine, Everson, Custer, Glacier, Kendall, Sumas, Acme, Concrete, (have I missed any?) and all of Whatcom County, through the election process, it shall be a fate accompli!

So, if I have not been clear enough, it’s time to wake-up, get-up and fight to keep your liberty and freedom through the retention of your private citizen’s and property rights.  Their goal is to lock-up and control all private property rights through International treaty recognition and usurpation of your Constitution at the same time.  It is your job to become informed and active to guard against and reclaim those rights!

Enjoy Karl’s rage and let me know what you think.

Long Train Running to China Grove

About a year ago, my employer relocated to a new office building. Many of my co-workers have a spectacular view of Bellingham Bay, or the city lights. But being a railroad buff, I chose an office overlooking the main line through Bellingham just across the street. Out my office window, I see passenger trains, freight trains, miscellaneous track maintenance trains and other interesting vehicles.
But the most impressive trains are the coal trains. They usually have five of the largest locomotives, two on one end and three on the other, bracketing about a mile of identical hopper cars, each one heaped to the brim with coal. About five or six of these trains a day (while I'm in the office) head north, fully loaded, and five or six head south, empty. Every day. There may be more while I'm not watching.
I always wondered where that coal was coming from, and where it was going. Intalco? It takes a lot of electricity to smelt aluminum. No, that coal comes from Colorado, is shipped by rail to the lower mainland of British Columbia, where it is loaded onto ships and hauled to China!
Because coal is deemed too "polluting" to be burned in the USA, we use countless gallons of precious liquid petroleum to ship it to China to be burned! I wonder how much coal would be left if they used the energy in the coal itself to haul it to China? This is sheer idiocy! To prevent pollution, we create more pollution to ship it somewhere else to be burned anyway. Doh!
If freedom still rang in this country, we would burn the coal on site, or at least near where it is mined (to generate electricity, or liquefy it for mobile applications). Somehow, we have to get the environmental extremists off our backs and restore some sanity. Our current energy policy is worse than no energy policy.

Republican Reactive Neutrality

Republican Reactive Neutrality

Nick R. Brown

by Nick R. Brown

I feel like, “We warned you,” is not quite poignant enough.  But well…we warned you.  Those of us in the free market technology policy sector have been trying to wake up various think-tanks and Republican politicians alike to the dangers of Network Neutrality for roughly 6 years now.  We were all ignored for the most part and now the reality is starting to sink in that Republicans will have to lie in the bed they made for themselves.

Thanks should be given to a few diligent organizations like the late Progress & Freedom Foundation led by Adam Thierer, Jon Henke’s Digital Society, and Information Technology & Innovation Foundation who have beat the drum tirelessly.  In the last year Americans for Prosperity can be applauded for their efforts to educate and build up a grassroots movement.  And organizations like CATO and Phoenix Center have provided key scholarly work.

Where was everyone else?

It’s not really a complex arithmetic to figure out that if you ignore an issue that you won’t make up any ground on the issue.  Net Neutrality was essentially ignored by our side and the result was that we lost the regulation battle.  Technology policy is not sexy.  Much of it is hard to understand.  Some of the time it is difficult for those of us that love technology to understand.  We dig through it though because we have a passion for it and desire to find ways to communicate what many times is a lot of “techie jargon” into a language that normal people speak.  This is no different than me trying to understand lawyer speak or this strange medical language that people like my father speak fluently.  The reality though is that amongst policy circles, tech policy guys are still the nerds, and many times we are pushed aside, the attitude by the mainstream policy folk is one of, “Go back and play with your gadgets and stay out of the way of the important issues.”

Then what happens is everyone wakes up one day, the Net is regulated, business models are destroyed, infrastructure is in the hands of the FCC and provider side innovation is most likely about to take a dive and gents like Kevin McCarthy (CA-R) stand up and say, “Why didn’t anyone tell us?!”  This is precisely what happened earlier this week when McCarthy wanted to know why various Internet providers were not doing more to help the Republicans fight against Net Neutrality.
