A Silent Wilderness Hike

 

I’ve been through this area many times on foot and on horse.. First time at this lake for me was 1973..

Black Consciousness vs Yeshua Righteousness

When we think of Christ consciousness we should be aware that The enemy of Christ consciousness also calls itself Christ consciousness.. Christianity, Churchianity. When we hear people speaking of God, and of Christ how do we know they don’t mean false gods and false Christs? The only way to know is to research. I often wonder if it is possible to know HIS words and HIS real meanings while calling him by a false name.  When His ultimate sacrifice was being brought about and concluded they were not calling him Jesus Christ. Mankind has only called Him Jesus Christ for about 500 years. So now in this world Jesus Christ can and does mean different Christs by different groups.. Like the Pope’s claims that Jesus Christ dwells within him as the head of the Universalist Catholic Church.. This cult and many others keep redefining what Christ Consciousness is by redefining what the Old and New Testament Covenant says.. For those who don’t know covenant means contract. Now that contract with the King Yeshua has been denigrated as just another group among countless groups.. Is Yeshua worried about his name? I wonder. If I seek out His words in the best ancient transcripts and linguistics available to me in these times and keep His Law does he know me if I don’t know His name? I wonder.  The idea of LAW originates with The Life Giver. It is His LAW that interests me.. Not the imaginations of wild eyed men all claiming they have a superior enlightened consciousness because all of their law-legalese contradicts itself and worse lies to all men and so does their reworded perverted Old and New Testament consciousness. 99% of those preaching a Christ consciousness are preaching anti Christ consciousness because they have altered the real Christ consciousness to suit them, not Him.. Is His real LAW written upon your heart? Has it been through your mind so you can know it and compare it to the countless fictions misrepresenting His LAW so you know the difference? And when we come to that understanding then we know who is speaking for him and against him.. Maybe the real LAW in our hearts is his real name. I keep wondering. This below is a good work by a good man.. By the way, The Life Giver and the Forgiver of sin is not in a real nice building with a phallic extending above the roof waiting for you on SUNDAY.. But the Devil is..

Blind Subservience to mAN-gODS’ Law Enforcement

In a letter to the editor in the Kennebec Journal/Morning Sentinel, a writer states: “Equally disturbing was the total lack of regard for Maine law by the investigation’s subjects. Illegal drug use, drinking and driving, drinking and hunting, driving with a loaded gun in addition to night hunting are not only illegal but dangerous behavior.”

This writer couldn’t agree more. However, to fully demonize and cast judgement on the “subjects” for breaking the laws of the State of Maine, while allowing a different standard for any law enforcement agency is not in the best interest of anyone and carries with it the same reasoning that such behavior by law enforcement, “are not only illegal but a dangerous behavior.” If Maine law allows law enforcement to break laws, it needs to be changed. If not, then how can one claim this behavior is “dangerous” for some but not for others. That’s known as a double standard. There can not exist double standards between the people and the government. Have we not been witness to the historic results?

If for no other reason, law enforcement, if it intends for the citizen-slaves to abide by state’s laws, should set the example and follow the same laws. Why are they any different from you and I?

As a parent, I always had the discussion with my wife, that if we intended our children to grow up with proper morals and behavior, then we must set the example for them. Where there is no leadership, the people perish.

Granting blind deference to any government and/or its agents, believing this is somehow in the best interest of our future as free men, is the exemplification of brainwashing and propagandizing.

If the Maine Courts are ruling according to the written law, they have told us that the actions of undercover agents have been legal. That does not make them right. I, for one, would like to see those rules and regulations changed.

My Social Engineering Is Better Than Yours Paradigm

Yeah, the title should remind you of your arguments in kindergarten.. Where my this or that is better than yours.. Because your mind control first passed down to you by mommy and daddy was soon taken over by the govern-mental teach you what to think not how to think facility.. They like to wait for your folks to finish your potty training before they take over..  So here we are, living in the my social engineering and my culture created in the govern-mental screw with our heads petri dish of their so called enlightenment is better than yours paradigm..
Mental slavery is worse than physical slavery because the chains are invisible. Mental slavery is the stockholm syndrome perfected.. It is learned in govern-mental academic the world is how we tell you it is dumbing down the mans natural abilities of critical self thinking processes.. What was taught in the HIS STORY History Classes in these govern-mental facilities were myths. They taught and still teach ignorance. Teaching non initiates of their established world control ignorance benefits the corporations I keep pointing out. Are you spending your time arguing over one another’s social engineering? Did you ever wonder why this society has so many different thinking people? Why not? Where did they all learn it from? Why is your social engineering more intellectually evolved than mine? Why do you hate me? Why do so many hate you? Did you ever stop and think about that? Maybe you’re special and I’m not? What makes you so right and the people you are against so wrong? Who taught them that wrong stuff? Could it have been the same social engineers that taught you the stuff you believe in? I can tell you it was. Definitely it was and still is..  I’m a hunter gatherer. I ride horses and mules. I dress different than you do. I grow my own food, and I take my own meat. And I trade for food. I challenge my own thinking daily, and have done so for decades. I still need to eat, I like my weird clothes and those funny hats I cover my head with.
This is me; Bama knew what I’d be looking like so he painted me up.. Seriously, if you seen me riding about you’d know thats me..  Thats my social engineering you hate.. The mountain rider hunter gatherer explorer type..
Front
If you’re such a super academic smart all knowing intellectual evolved thinker why does a weird dressing funny hat wearing guy like me have to point this out for you? Folks who know me aren’t surprised when I pull a book or books out of those saddle bags, or they see me scribbling on a note pad while riding or sitting in camp or by a nice chuckling stream.. I have over 4,000 books back to my main camp. I know thats just weird..
“From the time we are born we are inundated with social and psychological programming, linguistic syntax, theory and rhetoric sold for truth. Some of it takes, some of it doesn’t. Most of the time we buy it and we buy it wholesale. Occasionally we have breakthroughs to varying degrees.”—A friend
I’m pretty smart. Lets say I was going to create a big lie to trick you with. I’d write a big book on the subject matter and then I’d pay several associates who appear to be other independent thinkers to support my HIS STORY lesson by using them as my reference materials who substantiate my big HIS STORY tale.. And you’d eat it up. How do I know this? Because you’re already guilty of doing exactly that. Sam’s big club sold you a bill of bogus goods and you swallowed it ip like that shit had sugar all over it..  They con-vinced you that you are a shareholder of the corporation they built, that you have a stake in it as a stakeholder. And all you need to do is vote your conscience to play..  And guess what else they did? They created your conscience for you because they’re really nice people..  They thought for you and they still are thinking for you.  Hey now does that piss you off? It ought to except you’re pissed off at me for saying this instead of at them for lying to you..  That was their idea too..
You know what? What is going on here? I’ll tell you whats up..  Did you read my trick above, additionally as part of my greatest trick I’d lead all of the opposition against my great trick I fooled you with.. Thats right, I’d control all of the opposition against my great lie, the greatest trick ever pulled on your minds.. So whats going on here is death by a thousand tricks.. And guess what else, we’re all it.. Tricks are for the ignorant people.. Ignorant of the biggest con job ever played on the minds of men in world HIS STORY..
Can we break out? Well sure, If a funny dressing weird hat wearing meat eating guy like me can do it anyone can..
Beyond Mental Slavery
“We all have unconscious reactive programs that determine many of our thoughts and decisions. Quick rationalizations provide obvious but untrue “reasons” for our beliefs and actions, biases prevent us from examining new ideas, and desires push us to win arguments rather than to search for truth. We are led around by these parts of our minds that we’re only vaguely aware of. But just how obedient are we to those hidden masters? Perhaps more than we know. Beyond Mental Slavery examines the many ways in which we become trapped in mental processes that limit the clarity and effectiveness of our thinking and decision-making. Using examples from science, business, the arts, and life in general, the basic problems – and solutions – are spelled out in simple language. Stories and research are used to show how the mind works – or doesn’t work. More than just a look at the flaws of our minds, this book is also a how-to guide for clearer, more powerful, and more useful thinking.”
Here I go again, pulling a book out of my saddle bags for ya..

Mental slavery promotes loyalty to the slave master, a form of Stockholm Syndrome.
Excerpted from Beyond Mental Slavery by Steve Gilman
  • Challenge your own thinking.  Use your reasoning power against itself to make logical arguments for opposing beliefs and theories.   Be honest with yourself and recognize your own biases.
  • Pay attention to your thoughts.  Learn to observe your mind by developing self-awareness and consciousness.  Routinely challenge your assumptions and their origins. Be willing to see how conditioned you might be. Start with a desire for the truth – no matter what it might be.  Meditation and mindfulness practices are a great way to do this.
  • Become aware of the effect that certain words have on you.  Notice which words generate strong reactions or feelings for you. Identify words that carry extra meaning for you or that may mean something different to others.  Doing so will prepare you to listen more objectively and to be less reactive.  He offers exercises in the book to help you do this.
  • Learn to recognize when your thinking is being corrupted by your ego.  Specifically to overcome the influence of the ego, he advises to:

– have fewer opinions
– argue less
– question your motivations and challenge your assumptions
– borrow instead of buying ideas
– become interested in and make the opposing argument
– be open to changing your mind
– understand limitations
– admit ignorance

  • Doubt the reality of any true authority. In fact, stop using the words “authority” or “expert” in your thinking and speech.  He’s not suggesting a lack of respect here; just that you never let someone think FOR you.
  • Do not measure and judge by self-reference.  Become aware of your own mind and its limitations and biases.  Your ideas and beliefs are not the standard against which all things are measured. While your beliefs are natural and obvious to you, others feel the same way about their own beliefs and judgments no matter how conflicting they may be with yours.
  • Question your habitual following of fear’s advice.  Look past fearful thoughts for better ideas and assumptions.  Purposefully, work through the fear and do that which scares you.  Stop serving fear and think and act in spite of it.

Have a nice ride, and don’t be to hard on yourself because what has happened to us all isn’t all our fault.. YOU can only fix Yourself.. Hey you can begin by thinking for yourself.

Wake Zone, Op-Ed – May 22, 2036 Watch What The Future Holds:

*Editor’s Note* – This Op Ed, written by John Kolezar, first appeared in the Western Outdoor Times. It is republished here with permission from the author.

‘The End Of The World As We Know It’

‘This is the end’… Jim Morrison, 1967

The annual hunting season, long declared to be barbaric by the social media watchdogs, was officially cancelled today by the Arizona Species Specialists, a group of environmentally sensitive and morally conscious individuals who report to the chair of the Prohibited Actions On Public Lands Committee.

While the demise of the hunting practice has long been predicted, today’s announcement came as a mild surprise to those who had hoped that the recreational activity might hold on for a few more years. The following is a re-cap of events that precipitated the announcement.

We Should Have Seen It Coming

In 2016

In 2016, then President Obama declared over 1.7 million acres of the Grand Canyon area to be declared a National Monument. Not satisfied with the restrictions imposed on land use by the monument designation, members of the Sierra Club, Center for Biological Diversity and Defenders of Wildlife filed suit in federal court in 2017 to have access denied to all but bird watchers, sightseers and certain government officials. Their claims of “Monument Degradation” was the first step in the cornerstone of limited access to public lands.

In 2018

In 2018, the Horses Forever group filed suit in federal court to have more open spaces for the Wild Horse and Burro Act. The judge, upon hearing that no one could prove that the horses were not long lost descendants of the Spanish Conquistadors, found in favor of the Horses Forever group and declared that the whole of Arizona andNevada that was not within designated city limits be declared open range for horses and burros.

The decision was challenged in court by the then Arizona Game & Fish Department but ultimately the Supreme Court found in favor of the plaintiffs and virtually all of Arizona and Nevada became refuge land for wild horses and burros.

In 2022

In 2022, with water in extremely short supply, the President of the United States declared that while Congress had debated for years, he was declaring a state of emergency for the entire Southwest. The states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California were placed on population-reduction quotas that mandated within a five (5)-year time frame, the populations needed to be reduced by more than 20 percent.

The general consensus at the time was that sustainability graphs proved the entire Southwest could not survive without population reduction. Included in the population counts were all people and animals that weighed over 100 pounds. The carrying capacity index that the government installed in 2020 showed that the Wild horse and Burro Act took precedence over most other Wildlife and particularly non-essential Wildlife such as deer and Elk.

With the enforcement of the Endangered Species Act regarding Mexican gray wolves and Northern gray wolves, fawn and calf survival rates plummeted for what had been large herds of deer and Elk.

In 2024

In 2024, the “Year of the Drought”, Wildlife other than horses and burros, were effectively removed from all federal lands by federal sharpshooters. These were the same sharpshooters that culled over 500 head of bison/buffalo in 2017 from the grand canyon national park. Senate and Congressional inquiries on how every single bison/buffalo had been culled have been ongoing for over 15 years.

The sharpshooters were able to lethally cull over 20,000 deer and Elk within a single year. It had been determined in that same year that all hunting of predators was illegal and they were needed to remove what few animals remained in the wild on federal lands.

In 2025

In 2025, The Center for Biological Diversity filed a massive lawsuit against the United States Fish & WildlifeService. They had discovered that cell anomalies within snakes, lizards and certain plants meant that every individual snake, lizard and plant within a 200 mile radius of PHOENIX was to be declared an “Endangered Species”.

Reproductive anomalies created wide genetic variations within each species. Their lawsuit brought the total number of ESA species to a staggering 495 different species in Arizona alone.

The Fish & Wildlife Service agreed to place drone patrols over much of Arizona. Drivers of vehicles on asphalt roads are now required to give right of way to all rodents, snakes, and plants. Driving on gravel roads is prohibited on federal lands.

In 2027

In 2027, the activity known as “hunting” was challenged by the group “We Are All Animals”, or “WAAA” as they later became known as. In an unprecedented case, it was determined that there was no proven need to kill any animal outside of approved government “Compassionate Dispatch” shelters.

The Vegan Society proved that there was no need for consumption of dead meat and that all nutrients could be obtained through genetically modified plants, herbs and spices. It was the first time that hunting was challenged in court and the Supreme Court, that coincidentally had five justices who were avowed vegans, upheld the lower vegan court decision.

The Compassionate Dispatch centers now employ over 125,000 inmates from various penitentiaries around the United States to compassionately end life for all creatures that have lived their natural lives. Those lives have a pre-determined length based on species. The case, however, only applied to federal land animals.

In 2029

In 2029, after years of dwindling economic support from killers/hunters, all Pittman Robinson monies that had previously been from the sales of hunting-related items were re-dedicated to support of the Wild Horse and Burro Act for Arizona and Nevada. With the advancement of technology, activated drones were capable of determining if armed humans were participating in attempting to perform hunting activities on federal lands.

Through presidential decree, those drones were armed with micro-chip darts that could not be removed from a person if implanted. Those few souls who attempted to hunt on federal lands and were found to have the chip fired into their person by the drones were sentenced to 20 years probation after five years of federal penitentiary lock up.

Humanities classes and sensitivity training for 60 hours per week were deemed minimum parts of their incarceration.

In 2031

In 2031, state organizations cropped up that attempted to outlaw hunting on state lands. One of the more successful groups, “Humans and Animals in Harmony” (also called “HAAH”) began a successful campaign in the state educational system where they showed that the activity of hunting was traced to a particular gene which could be altered in a child while the child was still in the mother’s womb.

Efforts to identify the gene are still in clinical trial status, but hope is held that future generations of children will have the gene completely removed. The only complaints to date have been that those who had the gene removed are generally docile, complacent and frequently need reassurance that they are loved.

In 2034

In 2034, the State of Arizona declared that the Arizona Wildlife Enhancement Division, formerly called the Arizona Game & Fish Department – which was financially destitute from lack of funding via license sales – be merged into the State Parks Division. All 36 employees, including those who count the few remaining deer and Elk, are now Park personnel.

Their jobs will be to continue issuing citations for anyone who leaves either asphalt or paved roads in their all-terrain vehicles. Those vehicles, once numbering in the thousands, have plummeted since over 80 percent ofArizona has been declared National Monument land with little or no access for travel. A recent survey on the Web site Tellusallyourthoughts.com confirmed that over 95 percent of all residents approve of the transformation and that those who disagreed were either incredibly stupid or part of the crazy old timer generation.

Think This Can’t Happen?

Think this can’t happen? Watch what the future holds for those who love to hunt. We are being systematically removed from that which we love to do and very few people are taking any actions to stop the freight train of political correctness.

Maine’s Warden Service Undercover Tactics Raise Questions

*Scroll Down to bottom of page for updates and information*

I really haven’t wanted to touch this story with a ten-foot pole…for obvious and not so obvious reasons. However, it is time to weigh in with questions, of which there seems to be few, if any, answers.

Of late, the uproar was reignited when Portland Press Herald investigative reporter, Colin Woodard, filed his report in the Sunday newspaper about a sting operation in the small, northern Maine town of Allagash, that took two years of undercover work by a Maine Warden Service agent and yielded basically nothing.

I will not offer comment about the details of the operation because there is little known about what actually took place, including all the ins and outs, approvals by whom, etc. I can comment on what can be found in writing.

We don’t know how much the entire operation cost – the commissioner would not give that information – that netted charges for illegally attaching a tag to a deer, poaching of a single partridge, and drinking alcohol, but common sense should tell us the decision to undertake an investigation of this sort was a bad one – or at least to continue the sting for two years.

Also at issue are the “policies” that govern the actions of undercover wardens in cases like this. The Press Herald provides a copy of these policies that date back to 2005. Upon request for the latest version, according to Woodard, what he got was a redacted copy. People want to know why? What’s to hide?

It appears as though a lot of people are angry and left with a lot of unanswered questions about this sting operation and that the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW), which oversees the Maine Warden Service (MWS), isn’t answering any questions.

It is my understanding that when a decision is being made about whether to implement an undercover program, the determining factor is that the target must have a “predisposition” to poach game, i.e. break the law. Of course, such a prerequisite is, perhaps deliberately, left undefined and value laden from the perspective of the one who ultimately makes the decision.

Upon examination of the investigative reporting linked to above, Woodard gives readers an example of the request given to undertake an undercover investigation. For an agent to request an undercover operation they obviously have a hankering to do so and thus, as can be seen in the request, it becomes a sales pitch which should leave one to question how much such a request ought to be watered down…or maybe not.

The warden at the center of the covert action has a track record of trouble in other sting operations. In a separate report by the Press Herald, the same warden embedded himself to “sting” a registered Maine guide. According to the Press Herald report, “he enticed other individuals to commit wildlife crimes.” The Court, in finding the target not guilty, said the undercover warden, “created numerous instances of crime … participated in the criminal activity, and debased the integrity of Maine law enforcement in the process.” (Note: If the agent was allowed to carry out behavior of readily breaking laws and “enticing” others to do it with him for 10 years, one has to wonder to what degree, if any, he would be responsible for his actions in this latest sting.)

Perhaps the first question that needs to be answered is, to what level does a “predisposition to commit crime” need to rise that makes a target worthy of the time and money and the potential for criminal yield?

Another question might be, in fielding the request for an undercover sting, are the previous actions and results in court, considered by the person or persons making the decision to undertake a sting?

A third question should be, was the undercover operation being reported and updated on a regular basis to the powers in charge. If not, it should have been. If so, why wasn’t the sting called off once it became clear that return on investment was going to be poor. Is this a series of bad decision-making or a case of getting away with it in the past, so what that heck?

Question four, did it really require 30 game wardens, backed up by Maine State Police, to arrest one man and confiscate a 91-year-old-woman’s canned vegetables and moose meat, in a tiny town with only one road in and the same road out?

We now are hearing that state senator Paul Davis, who sits on the Joint Standing Committee of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, wants a meeting with the MDIFW commissioner to get answers. As was reported in this article, MDIFW is working on a statement about this incident. More than likely it will involve at least one, if not more, smooth-talking lawyers in order to cover up what needs to be covered up.

All of this should bring common sense citizens, at least those with some sort of moral compass and not blindly in love with law enforcement, thinking they can do no wrong, to question the need for law enforcement to break the laws they are sworn to uphold in hopes of creating or catching a “criminal.” If a person breaks the law, the person breaks the law. Arrest them for that act. One even has to question the need to allow law breaking for several years, sometimes resulting in more game poached than is legally taken, for the purpose of catching more people and making more charges. Is it really in the best interest of everyone to bait and trap people, the most of whom are easily influenced and under the right circumstances could be talked into anything? This is one of the troubles that result when undercover agents are allowed to go outside the law to make somebody else break the law so they can be arrested. When you consider that some agents provide alcohol to a sting target. Is this so their judgement becomes impaired and can more easily be influenced to break the law?

Illegal undercover operations are nothing new. I read about these kinds of fish and game undercover stings all across the country. Just about all of them that involve agents breaking the law to trap a “lawbreaker” end up being tossed out of court, i.e. a whole lot of time and money, all the resources that could be used for more productive things, down the tubes.

It appears to me, that in this case, whether it was the process or the decision making, or a combination of both, things were allowed to get beyond sense and sensibility and the result appears to speak for itself. Outcomes, such as the one at hand, do nothing for the image of the law enforcement and certainly destroys any level of trust and support that is often times needed to uphold the law. Is this not a pretty backward approach? Law enforcement needs to do their job but they can’t have the power to break the laws the rest of us are required to abide by, in order to find a criminal. It shouldn’t have to be this way. This is law enforcement out of control.

As far as the television crew from Animal Planet’s, North Woods Law, being on hand to film the mini, military invasion of Allagash, Maine, I’ll not even attempt to address that issue. Some think their presence embellished the entire bust. Readers will have to decide.

PPH has provided a chain of emails concerning its request for email from the MDIFW. This is incredible to say the least!

GPS Radio Collars Tracking Maine Deer – WHY?

“In use since 1950s, Maine’s deer allocation system has worked very successfully; however, with a changing climate, changing landscapes, and perhaps, missing data for the 2 extremes of our winter weather – the very mild and the very severe – it was time for the WSI system to be re-evaluated. Kyle Ravana, the lead MDIFW deer biologist, recently initiated a 5-yr study to conduct deer population monitoring using GPS satellite collar technology to track survival and mortality trends in Maine’s antlerless deer – i.e. does and fawns.

The Goals of the project are to:

1) Reevaluate the correlation between WSI and WMR for white-tailed deer

2) Assess seasonal survival rates for the adult female (?1.5 years) and fawn segments of the population

3) Assess cause-specific mortality of our adult female and fawn populations

4) Reassess the current winter severity index and try to identify a new, and more simplistic metric” <<<Read More>>>

It’s not so much that I was born a skeptic and struggle to find “good” in things that are loaded with bad, it’s just that I’m given few reasons to be optimistic about deer management (game management) in Maine. I also do not see putting on blinders, in order to only see the good, and feel good, as an honest means of building for a better tomorrow.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) has, of late, repeated the claim that the deer herd in Southern and Central Maine has recovered to a point a 59% increase in Any-Deer Permits (ADP) has been issued in order to reduce deer populations to levels determined by the public. If it is a fact that MDIFW is basing the determination of how many ADPs to issue for the following Fall deer hunt, almost completely on the Winter Severity Index (WSI) for one winter, no wonder the state, overall, struggles to grow a deer herd.

Now MDIFW is in the beginning stages of conducting a deer study – the goals of which are listed above. What I find of interest is the statement before the listing of the goals, claiming that MDIFW’s use of the WSI since the 1950s “has worked very successfully,” and this if immediately followed by a “however.”

The usual scapegoat of “climate change” and “changing landscapes” (wink, wink) leads the list of why there’s no deer but now we see a “perhaps.” This “perhaps” is saying that the previous two “extreme” winters had “missing data?” Can that be? Why is there missing data? Maybe we should radio-collar snow flakes? I hate pulling the logic card, because in today’s society and particularly in the Romance Biology and Voodoo Environmentalism entrenched in a mindless society, such nonsense as rational “thinking” often stands in the way of fulfilling narratives. I find it irresponsible, if there was missing data from the two previous “extreme” winters, enough so that this is worthy of consideration in a very expensive deer study program, to jerk one’s knee and increase ADPs 59%, while claiming the deer population in certain areas needs reducing. How do they honestly know this? Can they see this on their computer screen? And if that is the claim, what is it they are seeing, or not seeing, if there is “missing data?”

MDIFW now claims they are going to collar a bunch of deer in “one” Wildlife Management District- WMD 17. “With approximately 20 deer per square mile and a good variation of winter severities, habitats range from hard and soft wood stands, logging operations, agricultural lands; with some urban forest on the fringes of small towns and cities like Newport, Bangor and Skowhegan.”

Again, shouldn’t we ask WHY? Why WMD 17? So what if it has all those things stated above. I want to know if WMD 17 is representative of areas where deer aren’t growing. Or is this insurance that any results will fit the desired outcome? Screw the logic, again, but shouldn’t we be more interested in what’s killing the deer in places where the deer are being killed? This tells me MDIFW doesn’t want to know and/or they have already made up their minds. Hell, what do I know. I’m just a freak who can’t see things the same as other people. None of this makes me “feel good.”

And, once again, we return to the same point I brought up yesterday. Why spend the resources to collect any of this data, when MDIFW makes decisions to manage deer based on what the Environmentalist tell them? With a prominent member of the Humane Society of the United States sitting on a committee that will help decide bear management practices, a person who recently, through referendum, tried to ban bear hunting and trapping, and during the same time span sued the State of Maine; and, a group of people wanting to make more money conducting moose watching tours tells the MDIFW how many moose permits to allocate in their WMD; and, surveys and public meetings from the public at large being used as the major factor in determining game species populations; and, Maine Guides dictating to MDIFW how to run their hunting season in order for them to maximize profits, and there is little reason to think anything other than fish and game management is going to hell in a hand-basket…quickly.

But, by all means, DON’T GO LOOK!

Everyone Shits On Congress But Nobody Seems to Recognize Who Congress Is…Or Something

Congress “got something done!” Whooptie bison dung! I recall a United States Senator from Maine once saying that she was sent to Washington by the Maine people to “make laws and pass them.” It showed her ignorance along with her perception of her power OVER THE PEOPLE. Anyone would be a hero if they pledged to go to Washington and repeal ALL THE LAWS.

Congress has a dismal approval rating and a trustworthiness that’s probably in the negative numbers by now. It’s easy to disapprove of Congress and say terrible things about them. Even the brain dead, crooked members of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House shit on “Congress” as though they were something foreign. But, it appears nobody knows who Congress really is. They must be invisible.

Remember when the Kabuki Theater of the campaign to elect (wink, wink) a candidate from each of the two PRIVATE PARTIES, democrats and republicans, began? All in the Democrat party were current or former members of Congress. Nearly all of the Republicans the same thing. Those “outsiders” have or soon became connected insiders.

Everyone shits on “Congress” because “they can’t get anything done.” Well, no more! The Patriot Retort claims that Congress really dug in and accomplished something really vital to the future of this nation – voted to make the American Bison the official National Mammal. “I look forward to hearing all of the ways making the bison the national mammal of the United States has impacted your life. I’m sure it’s significant.” 

Now the American people are united once again…well, not really. But that damned “Congress!” They can’t be trusted – none of them. But I think I really like someone like Hillary Clinton or Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders and John Kaisich to turn this country around. I know they can do it this time. GEE WHIZ!

Even these professional liars, with straight faces, stand before the public and shit on Congress, telling of their awful failures. And the people BELIEVE! Chase me off a cliff or something. That’s where everyone else is going and I don’t want to miss out.

This morning I received an email about all the “Muslim” things that have “suddenly” happened in this country since Barack Obama became president. While the email didn’t come right out and say that this all happened since the “Muslim” Obama became president, it was intended.

Presenting the sudden influx of everything Islam into the country as “something that never happened before” Obama, can we then expect that if Donald Trump is elected (wink, wink) president all national parks will be sold for the good of the taxpayers and they will be dotted with Trump Towers and golf courses? Naw! He’s an “outsider.” He’ll not be like them losers in Congress.

Congress is what Congress is told what to be. It’s time Americans learned this. But they won’t. Instead, they would prefer to believe what members of Congress tell them that Congress can’t get anything done. “IF YOU VOTE FOR ME I WILL GO TO WASHINGTON AND……” do the exact same thing I am now.

Time to go wallow in some bison dung! You’ll feel and smell better.

Maine Supreme Court Decision Against HSUS Not Necessarily a Victory for Sportsmen

Maine sportsmen shouldn’t go off half cocked and with swelled chests believing that the decision by the Maine Supreme Court to uphold Superior Court Justice Joyce Wheeler’s ruling that a lawsuit, filed by Katie Hansberry and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), declared “moot,” was some kind of major victory for sportsmen.

The Sportsmen’s Alliance put out a presser extolling the victory: “Today’s ruling just reaffirms our position and is a clear and decisive victory for sportsmen in Maine,” said Evan Heusinkveld, president and CEO of Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation. “The people of Maine deserve to hear from the experts when it comes to these issues, and today’s ruling rightfully upheld that position.”

A writer for the Bangor Daily News reports: “In March 2015, Superior Court Justice Joyce Wheeler dismissed the lawsuit, saying it was moot because the election had been decided. She also declared the department’s campaign activities were legal because restricting speech on a contested issue was not in the public’s interest.”

I think it’s imperative that readers examine the written ruling of the Maine Supreme Court on the issue, compare it with comments being made and determine that this ruling is not a huge victory for sportsmen. As well, it’s important to understand what was and what wasn’t written in the decision.

As I understand it, Katie Hansberry and HSUS filed a lawsuit to stop representatives from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) from speaking out in opposition to Question One on the Maine ballot – an initiative that would have effectively ended bear hunting and trapping in the state. From the perspective of MDIFW such a referendum, if passed, would have seriously impeded the department’s ability to responsibly manage black bears.

Maine Superior Court Justice Joyce Wheeler, at the time of review of the lawsuit, ruled the case “moot” because the referendum voting had already taken place. However, HSUS and Hansberry decided to appeal that ruling and sought from the Maine Supreme Court a clear ruling that would, in the future, prohibit state departments, and in this case MDIFW, from using what they deemed public resources against public referendum issues.

While the Maine Supreme Court upheld Wheeler’s moot ruling, in response to the appeal the justices attempted to explain why the moot decision was upheld and why the same Court could not make a blanket ruling about future campaigns that involve state departments.

The Court writes: “An issue is moot when there remains no “real and substantial controversy, admitting of specific relief through a judgment of conclusive character.”  A controversy that declares rights “upon a state of facts that may or may not arise in the future” is not justiciable.” 

HSUS was seeking a ruling that they could perhaps use that would prohibit any department from speaking out, for or against, in future referendum campaigns. The Court was not going to give them that ruling because there is no way to determine future issues and the context in which such campaign issues may arise.

The lawsuit against the MDIFW claims that employees/representatives of that department, continuing to be allowed to speak out against HSUS’ efforts “harms ongoing efforts” of HSUS. The Court thought otherwise: “This alleged harm does not present a “real and substantial controversy” that could be addressed through “specific relief.” Any relief that MFBH will obtain is theoretical, depending on whether it becomes involved in a future ballot initiative.”

The Court also explains, in depth, certain exceptions to “mootness.” (1) sufficient collateral consequences will result from the determination of the questions presented so as to justify relief; (2) the appeal contains questions of great public concern that, in the interest of providing future guidance to the bar and public we may address; or (3) the issues are capable of repetition but evade review because of their fleeting or determinate nature.

Perhaps of most importance is the following statement found in the ruling as it pertains to why “mootness” exceptions do not exist: “However, the core question at issue in this case is not a generic question; rather, the question presented is the specific agency’s authority in the context of the facts at issue. Each State agency’s authority turns on its individual enabling statute. Although the question may recur, the extent of an agency’s statutory authority, the actions taken by the agency, and the context of those actions will vary and are not predictable. An interpretation of the Department’s enabling statute in the context of this now-concluded action may have little authoritative value in future litigation.” 

Hansberry and the Humane Society of the United States did not get what they wanted but it should be understood that they also were not shut out in their efforts. What they got was a better understanding of how to go about filing the next lawsuit in order to better satisfy the demands of the Maine Court. The ruling does not declare that all of Maine’s governmental departments are free to campaign for or against public issues. Each department is different and the context of the lawsuits – circumstances involved – can and will determine the viability of a lawsuit against the state.

In this particular case, because the lawsuit never reached the Courts before the referendum voting, the case was declared moot and considerations as to future lawsuits could not be evaluated “generically.”

A victory? Perhaps. A huge victory? No. And even the so-perceived victory is in the eye of the beholder. Is it a victory to know that in the right context, the state can be sued to prevent the public from gaining knowledge about a department’s ability to do their jobs? Is it a victory that in the same or different context, that state can not be sued?

Doors always swing in two directions. What we should learn is that in this one particular case, HSUS was not able to get the Court to give them what they wanted to make their future lawsuits easier by censorship. However, they gained understanding for the next time.

Michael Finley: Recipient of the Golden Horse Excrement Award

horsepoopsmallMichael Finley, chair of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission, and former superintendent of Yellowstone National Park when illegal “GI” wolves were dumped there, receives my never coveted Golden Horse Excrement Award for the following statements.

“No one took any joy in this action,” said Finley, who retired from the National Park Service in 2001 and moved back to Medford, Ore., where he grew up.

“No one I know on the commission or on the professional staff wants to see wolves killed, period,” Finley said. “There are just places wolves can’t be and times they can’t be there. It’s a simple fact of wolf management.”

Aside from the utter nonsense printed in an online media outlet about “Trophic Cascades” I call out Finley on making such BS statements. It’s very easy, now that wolves were criminally introduced in the Greater Yellowstone Area, of which he was a part of, to state that “no one took any joy” killing wolves that were destroying private property, as well as making statements he doesn’t believe in that, “There are just places wolves can’t be,” calling it a “simple fact of wolf management.”

When you consider the pages and pages of lies fed to the public in the Environmental Impact Statement and the repeated lies given to the public at meetings and spread through fervent propaganda blitzes, by this criminal act, THEY got their damned wolves. They promised everybody that there would be no more than 300 wolves and/or 30 breeding pairs and with that number of wolves there would be no impact on game, i.e. elk, deer, and moose. And we mustn’t forget the complicit Congress told the wolf pimps that there can be no impact on ranchers, residents, etc.

Now they have thousands of them and they know that not only have they got their wolves but they also own everything about wolf reintroduction and the ongoing protection of them – including the USFWS, environmentalist groups, Congress and the media. They now are comfortable in the fact that nothing is going to harm their precious, nasty, diseased wild dogs and so, it takes a very brave man to step up to the press and say, “no one took any joy” in killing four wolves and that it’s a “simple fact of wolf management.” HS!!

Incorrectly stated at the beginning of the article, Finley don’t know squat about wolves. All he knows is how to play the political environmentalist game of power control over people.

The entire act of wolf introduction was criminal….PERIOD. Anyone involved in the act were criminals…PERIOD. They should be charged for the criminal actions. Wolf introduction has been nothing short of a disaster, regardless of the lies fed to us by environmentalists and the media they own and control. Now that they got away with it, the lying bastards are presenting themselves as some kind of heroes.
