“Smart Growth” Hidden in the Heartland of the United States…

Whether it’s called Smart Growth, Sustainability, Livability, Home, Vision, Tomorrow, Today, Friends or some other fuzzy word that doesn’t defend liberty, this lady’s got it right!

“Smart Growth” Hidden in Heart of Franklin, TN

Posted by Victoria Jackson on December 14, 2012 at 12:23 pm

There’s a cancer spreading across TN…and America…It’s insidious. It’s hiding in plain sight.

I was poking around Leiper’s Fork, TN looking for country singing stars and fantasizing that I was one, and that I owned a big ol’ cattle farm when I stumbled upon a free magazine (in existence only a year) from Journal Communications, (, that had big, lush photos of Williamson County. There was a gorgeous spread about a ‘non-profit’ called, “Friends of Franklin Parks,” which upon closer examination is connected to “Franklin Tomorrow.”

I had just asked Ken Freeman, co-creator of SB 477, (the strongest protection against the UN scheme (Agenda 21) passed anywhere in America so far…and that has had “virtually no mention in the establishment press,”) what a “smart growth” meeting looks like. Surprisingly, within two days I accidentally uncovered two “smart growth” publications, three “smart growth” NGO’s, a couple “smart growth” PPP’s, and a “smart growth” mayor who were all guilty of spreading this “smart growth”-Agenda 21-redistribution-disease.

Since my “Agenda 21” radar was on alert, this “Friends of Franklin Parks” article sent giant, red flags up, flares. Not one word in the article mentioned “Sustainability,” “Smart Growth,” or “Sustainable Development,” but I could still smell the putrid scent of communism disguised as ‘a vision of Franklin’s future development.’ There were other clue-words, parks, parks, parks, grant, non-profit, PPP (public-private-partnerships), population control, foundation, umbrella, grantors, future, public garden. So sneaky. Why, what could be bad about bicycle paths, reduced traffic and parks, parks, parks? Well, taking away private property to make the parks, parks, parks is one bad thing. Stealing a private farm to make it a government-owned public farm is a very bad thing. It’s the number one goal of Marxism and the United Nation’s Agenda 21 – separate citizens from their private property.

OBAMA signs renewal of Foreign Surveillance Law

Isn’t he a peach!  The most transparent administration has gone black to avoid the limelight of his (and Congress’ s) traitorous actions.  Not to mention they reauthorized the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), without any partisan complications.

YiT ~  Shelly

Dec 30, 5:49 PM EST


WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has signed into law a five-year extension of the U.S. government's authority to monitor the overseas activity of suspected foreign spies and terrorists.

The warrantless intercept program would have expired at the end of 2012 without the president's approval. The renewal bill won final passage in the Senate on Friday.

Known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the law allows the government to monitor overseas phone calls and emails without obtaining a court order for each intercept.

The law does not apply to Americans. When Americans are targeted for surveillance, the government must get a warrant from a special 11-judge court of U.S. district judges appointed by the Supreme Court. Click here to read the full story.

NDAA Indefinite Detention Bill Passes Senate After Rand Paul Calls It An 'Abomination'

The Senate passed a version of the National Defense Authorization Act that was stripped of a prohibition of the indefinite military detention of US citizens on American soil by an 81-14 vote on Friday, but only after a furious dissent on the chamber's floor by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who called it an "abomination."

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 will now head to the White House, which had earlier pledged to veto the NDAA because it prevents the president from closing the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. It is unclear whether the president will follow through on the threat.  Click here to read the full story.

Merry Christmas to who? Is there a “Sandy Scam???”

Obama Sandy aid bill filled with holiday goodies unrelated to storm damage

Vics suffer as $60B aid plan gets porked up

  • By S.A. MILLER and GERRY SHIELDS Post Correspondents

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s $60.4 billion request for Hurricane Sandy relief has morphed into a huge Christmas stocking of goodies for federal agencies and even the state of Alaska, The Post has learned.

The pork-barrel feast includes more than $8 million to buy cars and equipment for

million for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to dole out to fisheries in Alaska and $2 million for the Smithsonian Institution to repair museum roofs in DC.

An eye-popping $13 billion would go to “mitigation” projects to prepare for future storms.

Other big-ticket items in the bill include $207 million for the VA Manhattan Medical Center; $41 million to fix up eight military bases along the storm’s path, including Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; $4 million for repairs at Kennedy Space Center in Florida; $3.3 million for the Plum Island Animal Disease Center and $1.1 million to repair national cemeteries.

Say “Hello”…Big Brother is listening and storing your private emails!

From Russia Today (RT) comes a startling video about a U.S. program called Naris which is capturing and storing all emails, of all U.S. citizen's.  There is a lot of data to be stored and is being stored all over the country.  In fact, they are building a huge facility to store all of this data, without a legal warrant or credible reason to violate the privacy of private citizens.

With all of the shenanigans and downright criminal activity going on right in front of us, why does our government need to capture our words in this manner?

'Everyone in US under virtual surveillance' - NSA whistleblower

Published: 04 December, 2012, 18:01

The FBI has the e-mails of nearly all US citizens, including congressional members, according to NSA whistleblower William Binney. Speaking to RT he warned that the government can use information against anyone it wants.

One of the best mathematicians and code breakers in NSA history resigned in 2001 because he no longer wanted to be associated with alleged violations of the constitution.

He asserts, that the FBI has access to this data due to a powerful device Naris.

This year Binney received the Callaway award. The annual award was established to recognize those, who stand out for constitutional rights and American values at great risk to their personal or professional lives.

RT: In light of the Petraeus/Allen scandal while the public is so focused on the details of their family drama one may argue that the real scandal in this whole story is the power, the reach of the surveillance state. I mean if we take General Allen – thousands of his personal e-mails have been sifted through private correspondence. It’s not like any of those men was planning an attack on America. Does the scandal prove the notion that there is no such thing as privacy in a surveillance state?

William Binney: Yes, that’s what I’ve been basically saying for quite some time, is that the FBI has access to the data collected, which is basically the e-mails of virtually everybody in the country. And the FBI has access to it. All the congressional members are on the surveillance too, no one is excluded. They are all included. So, yes, this can happen to anyone. If they become a target for whatever reason – they are targeted by the government, the government can go in, or the FBI, or other agencies of the government, they can go into their database, pull all that data collected on them over the years, and we analyze it all. So, we have to actively analyze everything they’ve done for the last 10 years at least.

RT: Tell me about the most outrageous thing that you came across during your work at the NSA.

WB: The violations of the constitution and any number of laws that existed at the time. That was the part that I could not be associated with. That’s why I left. They were building social networks on who is communicating and with whom inside this country. So that the entire social network of everybody, of every US citizen was being compiled overtime. So, they are taking from one company alone roughly 320 million records a day. That’s probably accumulated probably close to 20 trillion over the years. The original program that we put together to handle this to be able to identify terrorists anywhere in the world and alert anyone that they were in jeopardy. We would have been able to do that by encrypting everybody’s communications except those, who were targets. So, in essence you would protect their identities and the information about them until you could develop probable cause, and once you showed your probable cause, then you could do a decrypt and target them. And we could do that and isolate those people all alone. It wasn’t a problem at all. There was no difficulty in that.

Cradle to Grave…Nanny Government will be there for you…or not?

After watching President Obama and Gov. Christie showboat the masses with their concern for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, the reporters cameras dimmed, and the victims were left behind to deal with Nanny Government. They promised to fulfill their everyday necessities. Too bad that just like Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy has proven to be too much for a bloated bureaucracy to manage.

Exclusive: Chuck Norris applauds private efforts to help Hurricane Sandy victims

“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’”

– President Ronald Reagan

Those wise and yet haunting words spoken by one of our nation’s greatest presidents couldn’t ring more true – especially today, as winter sets in on an estimated 130,000 of our fellow Americans who are still struggling without power. Many live without heat, hot water or inhabitable homes and question the government’s efforts to alleviate their condition.

Amid the election frenzy, several mainstream media outlets instantly praised the Obama administration’s response to the Hurricane Sandy devastation in the Northeast. But let’s look beneath the congratulatory headlines to see the real and horrifying picture of what’s happening.

Right now, homeless Americans are literally freezing, wrapped in blankets and trash bags as they struggle to survive in FEMA tent cities such as New Jersey’s “Camp Freedom,” which reportedly “resembles a prison camp.”

“Sitting there last night you could see your breath,” displaced resident Brian Sotelo told the Asbury Park Press. “At (Pine Belt) the Red Cross made an announcement that they were sending us to permanent structures up here that had just been redone, that had washing machines and hot showers and steady electric, and they sent us to tent city. We got (expletived).”

Corruption at the DoE??? Really???

The fact that all of the green energy development is not green, should be reason enough to stop spending tax dollars on promoting it until it becomes economically viable to produce.

Corruption at the Dept of Energy shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, since it doesn’t make any sense that we’re giving out tax payer largesse to finance it.  Who cares if you waste someone else’s dollar(s)?

Lawsuit Alleges “Corruption and Negligence” at Department of Energy

Lachlan Markay  November 16, 2012 at 11:35 am

A lawsuit filed in federal court on Wednesday alleges mass favoritism in the Department of Energy’s decisions to award federal grants to major car companies to develop electric vehicles, according to a legal complaint obtained by Scribe.

The plaintiff, San Francisco-based XP Technology, says in a complaint filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims that “corruption and negligence” pervaded DOE’s decision to award loan guarantees to Ford, Nissan, Tesla Motors, and Fisker Automotive for the development of electric vehicle technology.

“Investigations have shown that DOE officials intentionally stalled numerous applicants’ reviews in order to force them out of business and protect favored players,” the complaint claims. It adds:

XP has received information demonstrating that the unprecedented number of failures in the DOE program relative to what DOE officials have claimed to be “the most expensive and extensive due diligence in history” is explained by manipulated reviews, in the due diligence effort, on behalf of what the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigations found to be “favoritism” in published investigation reports. A senate ethics investigation states, in published reports, that “negligence and mismanagement by DOE officials” was a regular occurrence.

XP, which applied for federal backing under the Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing program, “is seeking to have applicants who were “targeted” receive fair re-reviews, in a transparent manner, if they so desire.”

Obama breaks another election year promise

Very shortly after the Presidential Election of 2012, President Obama’s Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, has announced that the Administration will shut out 2/3rd of the public land slated for oil shale development, will instead be closed to it.

Just a first in what is going to be another really long four years.

US limits oil-shale development in Rocky Mountains

By: PAUL FOY | Associated Press
Published: November 09, 2012

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The U.S. Department of the Interior scaled back a Bush administration plan Friday to lease Western range lands for development of oil shale and tar sands, the unconventional sources of oil found in pockets of the Rocky Mountains.

Federal officials said they were set to make 1,250 square miles of public land available for commercial leasing in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. That's a third of the range lands that President George W. Bush planned to offer, and the new administration said it was taking wilderness-quality lands off the table.

On paper, the Rocky Mountain oil shale deposits could yield a great abundance of oil more than 1 trillion barrels but environmental groups say it would involve ripping up public lands and depleting scarce sources of water. Political leaders in Arizona and Nevada and farmers worry about a diversion of Colorado River water. Big-game hunters oppose the intrusion of mining.

Are U.S. Election Campaigns Corrupted by Non-Profits?

The subject of campaign fraud caused by illegal, foreign donations made to U.S. nonprofit organizations, is quite intriguing.  The claim is one that warrants understanding and likely fixing.

Although United States political campaigns are legally bound not to accept donations from foreign sources, nonprofit organizations can and do donate to political candidates of their liking.  And, these nonprofit organizations can and do accept donations from anyone without prerequisite of U.S. citizenship.

So, if that isn’t enough to raise the hair on the back of your neck.  Try this thought on for size.  Lets say that a certain President said that “he’d have more flexibility after the election.”  Now, lets add to that the fact that a certain foreign Prime Minister has been acquiring a lot of nationalized oil rights and nationalized oil producing ownership.  And, lets add to this that a U.S. Senator has told us that the EPA has delayed implementation of major increases in costly increases to regulatory oversight expected to affect the loss of nearly 900,000 U.S. jobs.  Lastly, lets add the ability of foreigners to donate to U.S. environmental groups, who do in turn, donate lots of cash to political candidates who agree with their action agenda of environmental policy.

Would you agree that this is “Global Economic Warfare?”

Hurricane Sandy…is the sky falling…or maybe not???

Has Hurricane Sandy left a whole lot of pain, death and devastation in her wake?  Yes.  Is this proof of climate change?  No.  Instead of wasting all of our time and wealth on trying to reverse life back in time, it would have been better spent developing the technology to survive severe weather events, like Sandy.  Was there any doubt that if and when there was a catastrophic weather event in the United States, that all of the fear peddlers would climb back out from whence they’d gone to attempt an “I told you so!”

In Western Washington we had just under 90 straight days of dry weather.  The weather across the nation this last spring and summer, had scant water that caused a poor start to their crops.  The year before the farms across the nation had a cold, wet spring that hurt their crops and caused crop loss from molds.  But, no matter what the “weather” caused here and there, somewhere the weather was great and they were able to benefit from it.  That’s the way weather is, dry here, wet there, cold somewhere while it’s hot somewhere else.

Climate change on the other hand is a slow, deliberate process that occurs due to planetary alignments, gravitational pull and solar activity.   Whether we like it or not, we are an insignificant factor to the earth’s long history.  Likely, we will be remembered as a flicker of time in some history book, someplace, somewhere.

Some brave meteorologists get it and are tasked with the difficult job of cutting through the fog of dis-information spread by those selling non-scientifically proven, doom peddling, known as global cooling - global warming – climate change.  This hysteria is spoon fed us to us daily.  What could possibly be the motive?  To attain the goals of Agenda 21?  I’m just asking you to use some common sense and consider the sourceSleeping half-moon.

Do onto Yourself as You do to Others!

Are you better off from four years ago?  I know that I am not and most people I know are not.  Even with low interest rates and lots of money to lend, you need huge down payments and are scrutinized with a microscope as to your ability to pay your loan.

Here’s a bright idea!  Let’s apply the same prerequisites to the Federal Government to borrow money from the Federal Reserve or any foreign government, that is being applied to the private citizens and private businesses.  That’s probably the best idea I’ve come up with in four years!

“Trouble is brewing in Thurston County, Washington State and Washington D.C., due to the channelings of J.Z. Knight”

Found more interesting things on the horizon of politics.  Didn’t know this was “brewing” just in time for “All Hallows Eve.”

If you’ve never heard of J.Z. Knight, you will soon.  J.Z. Knight is a “channeler,” who became famous a couple of decades ago.  J.Z. is a worshiper of Gaia.  Whether you share J.Z.’s predilection for new ageism, or you shake your head in confusion or disgust, this is a large segment of the “power” players in progressive politics these days.

You don’t have to be a spirit-channeler to get all the information about J.Z. Knight

J.Z. Knight and her Ramtha School of Enlightenment are in the news—and not in a positive way. You can’t browse the internet today without seeing her name associated with a shocking (to say the least) video that shows Ramtha spewing anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, and anti-gay rhetoric during one of her “enlightenment” sermons.

This story has come to light largely because of the Freedom Foundation’s (and volunteer’s) tenacity and research into local government issues in Thurston County. The Ramtha story came to our attention when a local activist contacted the Freedom Foundation asking how we could help shine some light on the cult activity taking place there. The more digging we did into this story, the more bizarre it has become. The media is now catching on to this story like a firestorm and it has taken on a life of its own.

Why are there any undecided voters left?

When I engage people in conversation about anything of political consequence there is a familiar theme; “That’s why I don’t vote.”  Barring my mouth dropping open and catching flies, I am in shock over this dilemma.  If you don’t understand the issues, there are plenty of non-partisan sources to reach out to for clarity on the issues.

Are “You” voting this year?  If you choose to sit it out because you refuse to spend some time reading up on the ballots and the candidates, so be it.  Please do not complain about the lack of jobs, low wages, the cost of food, clothing and housing, or a politicians lack of principles.  Those principles start at home.  It is each of our responsibility to care enough about our Country to vote for the most principled individual(s) that will represent “you.”

Need some help sourcing for your votes?  Check out these links:

  1. The Freedom Foundation is a great place to start.
  2. The Washington State Voters Online guide is another great resource.
  3. Here’s another well connected site called, “Politics 1.”
  4. If you have further need to vet the candidates, you can always call upon your local “Tea Party” for non-partisan information.

With the election only 15 days from now, it is everyone’s responsibility to turn-off “Dancing with the Stars,” or whatever source you’re using to keep your head in the sand and fill out that voters ballot.  After the election is over, you will have more time to spend not paying attention to anything past the end of your nose, or you’ll be so busy trying to figure out how you lost your shirt to the collectivists that nothing else will matter.  Sarcastic smile

Big Government + Big Promises = Big Problems

Everyday we fail to get honest answers on how the federal, state, counties and cities are going to come up with the funds to pay out all of the unfunded, mandated promises of future pension payments.

There is only one real solution to this problem and that is to stop making promises we cannot afford to keep!  If we the people insist that our elected public servants stop increasing the level of public spending beyond the tax payers ability to pay, remove the mandates to pay prevailing union scale wages, start privatizing as much government services as quickly as we can; maybe we can avoid the upcoming. fiscal train-wreck, headed our way.

Exclusive: Study shows $1.2 trillion gap for public pensions

By Hilary Russ - Mon Oct 15, 2012 3:01pm EDT

(Reuters) - The largest 100 public pension funds have around $1.2 trillion of unfunded liabilities, about $300 billion above the nearly $900 billion they reported themselves, according to a new actuarial study to be released on Monday.

The pension systems reported a median funding level of 75.1 percent. The study by the actuarial firm Milliman, which used different ways to value assets and measure liabilities, finds an aggregate level of funding of 67.8 percent.

But Milliman, one of the world largest actuarial firms took a close look at U.S. public pension funding for the first time, and said the multibillion-dollar difference was good news.

Rebecca Sielman, the report's author, said results should reassure the public that America's public pensions in general are accurately reporting their funding shortfalls.

The difference between what public pensions across the United States have reported and what Milliman found wasn't significant, Sielman said. She noted that a relatively small change in the way the figures are calculated could lead to seemingly outsized results because the funds are so large.

"The numbers really didn't change that much," she said. "It really didn't move the needle."

Both the pension funds' reported results and Milliman's findings fell within the range of previous estimates from other studies of the total size of the public pension shortfall in the United States.

With the study, Milliman, stepped into the debate about whether public pensions are underreporting the size of their liabilities.  (Click here to read the full story)

Some more wise words from another private citizen with enough courage to ask the tough questions…

Jack Welch: I Was Right About That Strange Jobs Report

“The economy would need to be growing at breakneck speed for unemployment to drop to 7.8% from 8.3% in the course of two months.”


Imagine a country where challenging the ruling authorities—questioning, say, a piece of data released by central headquarters—would result in mobs of administration sympathizers claiming you should feel "embarrassed" and labeling you a fool, or worse.

Soviet Russia perhaps? Communist China? Nope, that would be the United States right now, when a person (like me, for instance) suggests that a certain government datum (like the September unemployment rate of 7.8%) doesn't make sense.

Unfortunately for those who would like me to pipe down, the 7.8% unemployment figure released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) last week is downright implausible. And that's why I made a stink about it. (Read the full story here)

MSU SDS Reunion: Bernadine Dohrn speaks

It’s been four years since I originally found this video.  With the coming election, it’s time to remind everyone who was sucked into the mantra of “Hope and Change” to understand where this mantra first originated.

President Obama has denied a cozy relationship with the Ayers, but I challenged that comment after I found this video during the 2008 election, where Ms. Dohrn uses the “Hope and Change” jingle throughout her speech.  Listen to their words of hope to change the United States into a lesser power, both economically and militarily.

If the world would be a better place without the United States as a moral leader, then why is the fighting and oppression of those liberated countries in ascension instead of decline.  The world has enjoyed a lot of peace over the past 200 years, in-between spates of wars and world wars.  Have we forgotten how tyranny always devolves to despotism?  Ultimate power, ultimately corrupts and anyone who leads under a soviet stylized system of “apex,” top down control, will devolve to leadership that will oppress the individual for the collectivist utopia of “what’s good for the goose must be good for the gander.”  Eventually the freedom to build and create will be snuffed out as we raise generations of humans unwilling or unable to think outside of a box and see that they’ve been wrapped-up into a prison of our own making.

My friends send these things to me and some just have to be shared.

November’s general election is quickly coming towards us. Will you vote?  Will you vote for change?  Do you know enough to feel secure that you and your family will be capable of securing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in a continued “Obama” presidency?

I’m voting for principles.  I’m voting for “individual” liberty.  I’m counting the days to November 6th, 2012 (56 days) to know if liberty lives or dies in America.

Because “We” Can

Water, water, everywhere…nor any drop to drink.

“The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” by S.T. Coleridge:

“Water, water, everywhere,

And all the boards did shrink.

Water, water, everywhere,

Nor any drop to drink.”

Whatcom County has many issues they are dealing with in regards to “water.”  You wouldn’t think that water should, could, would be an issue for the “Evergreen State,” would you?  The amount of water available to support humans, wildlife, industry and recreation is not in question.  The Whatcom County Council, the Whatcom County Executive, the City of Bellingham Council and Mayor, the local Public Utility District and the Nooksack and Lummi Tribes, have been working behind closed doors for “YEARS” and have not allowed “ALL” of the stakeholders a transparent seat at the table in these discussions. 

The State of Washington mandates that everyone has access to water without the need of a permit for these users:

  • Provide water for livestock (no gallon per day limit)
  • Watering non-commercial lawn or garden of 1/2 acre in size (no gallon per day limit)
  • Provide water for single or groups of homes (limited to 5000 gallons per day)
  • Provide water for industrial purposes, including irrigation (limited to 5000 gallons per day w/no limit on allowed acreage)

So, if we already have the rights to water use, why is this still an issue?  Who are the stakeholders?  It seems to me that anyone who uses water has an interest in seeing to it that we have access to plentiful, affordable, clean water.  The devil will be in the details of how much "”real” science is used to determine the outcome.  If the past is any indicator, there is a lot of questionable science being used to regulate us already…we don’t need more of that!

He who controls the water controls the world!

  • What are water rights?
  • Why do water rights matter?
  • Who will this affect?
  • How do we know who to trust?

There are many groups who are seeking to make this an open and honest process.  Thus far it has potentially devolved into a federal court decision if the “tribes” succeed in bringing this to a federal judge willing to hear and make judgment on; “He who controls the water.”  Seems to me that this matter should be adjudicated at the State level, since this is a States issue.

The “Universal Access Fund!” Is it time to end this freebie?

The YouTube video says it all for me.  I’ve hyperlinked each local/federal representative to Bellingham/Whatcom County, if you wish to speak/write/e-mail them about this abusive add-on to all phone bills.

Congressman Rick Larsen (currently running for re-election)

Senator Maria Cantwell (currently running for re-election):

Senator Patty Murray (currently the 4th highest member of the Senate)

A bit of Constitutional education pre-Constitution Day

Government 31 Constitution Video by Blessed_Hope

And if this video isn’t enough for you why not try the Yale Law Library’s; “The American  Constitution – A Documentary Record.”  Here you will find everything leading up to, the creation of and implementation of that marvelous document we know to be the “supreme law of the land,” our United States Constitution.

Local Blog, “Whatcom Excavator,” exposes blatant lies and collusion between City of Bellingham, Whatcom County Executive, Whatcom County Council, Conservation NW, Board of Natural Resources, Department of Natural Resources and Others

Please, please, please…take the time to read, absorb and share this posting from the Whatcom Excavator.  On Sept. 11th, 2012, the Whatcom County Council may affirm the Reconveyance of 8,800 acres of forested, agricultural land, currently under the control of our elected officials for the benefit of public school construction, low impact recreational activities (including hunting, fishing, off road vehicles and those “nasty” non-sustainable sports), which will forever remove this land as an asset and convert it to a public expense.  The real goal is to hand over this land to the Whatcom Land Trust with a “Conservation Easement.”  Whatcom Land Trust will have all of the control and “We the People,” will have all the costs to pay to maintain thousands of acres.  Better yet, they plan to make an exemption to place “wind turbines” across the ridge line around Lake Whatcom.  Wonder who’s pockets get lined with this chummy deal?

Read the truth for yourself and contact your local Whatcom County Representatives, Whatcom County Executive, BNR and DNR, to share your opinion.

The Dirty Low Down - Reconveyance Records Unmask Deals and Secrecy


WE just received a disk of public records that’s a scorcher.  Having looked through quite a few of these files (there are hundreds - it's good that this came with a list of “finds”) it looks like the county has done its best to evade the reality that significant collateral damage will befall the local economy if the “Lake Whatcom Reconveyance” moves forward.  What’s worse, the files reveal the Park Department’s constant and direct involvement in politics.  A lot of effort seems to have gone into putting direct pressure on elected officials near and far.  Instead of being objective, government has exhibited nothing but cold disregard for casualties on this steady march toward a predetermined outcome.  The disk is loaded with emails that urge secrecy.  Reading like a pulp fiction novel, tens of emails revealed deal making, back slapping, and substantial hypocrisy about environmental protection.  It seems a few key players have led an orchestrated campaign to drum up public support based on grandiose promises and emotion.

Greg Hunter talks about the economy, the election, the drought and geo-politics

Thought I’d mix it up a bit with some video on current issues that should receive attention this political cycle.  Enjoy the video and check back for more issues, as I scour the web for the factual articles and video that the MSM ignores.

“The Washington State Environmental and Sustainability Literacy Plan," education or indoctrination?

One of the pillars of UNA21SD (United Nations Agenda 21 for Sustainable Development) is to develop life long learners who understand the connection between the environment (Mother Earth) and human activity.  The diagram below shows the comprehensive plan to teach this theory and if you click on the image you will go to the “executive summary” of the plan.  There is a larger document that entails more details on how to achieve this outcome here.

So, if I understand that human activity is directly dependent upon what’s available in my environment, but I disagree with the outcome, do I fail the course?

Education or indoctrination?  You decide.  There is only one outcome in this circle and that is to teach to the Sustainablist’s outcome and get more tax dollars to keep teaching it.
