Are Tick Bite Reactions Associated With Our Chemical Ingestion?

A reader shared with me the other day an article that, evidently, was published in Peterson’s Hunting. What I received was a scan of the magazine article, so I can’t really share that with you. No matter, you can get information on the Lone Star tick from the CDC. Just scroll down a bit from the landing page until you find information about the Lone Star tick.

The issue that appears to be associated with a bite from a Lone Star tick is that some people (emphasis so far might be on “some”), after being bitten develop an allergic reaction to eating red meat. Hmmm. Maybe it’s a conspiracy formulated by vegetarians. But, why would they put their own food supply in jeopardy by forcing more people to have to give up eating red meat? (Just kidding)

It seems that as time goes along, more and more people are “contracting” diseases from ticks. We can make up all kinds of excuses and develop many theories about why but has anyone actually considered the fact that perhaps little has changed as far as the ticks go and a whole lot has changed as far as the chemical make-up of the human being is concerned?

Humans willingly and unawarely ingest gobs of chemicals into their bodies every day. Whether the consumption of these chemicals is temporary (until it passes through your system) or accumulative, logic might dictate that perhaps the same venom from the same ticks is the same as it always has been, plus whatever chemicals the ticks have been forced to take into their systems. With the human body fully loaded up with cocktails of various and sundry drugs/chemicals, and of course, the ticks may be injecting chemicals into our bodies as well, and the outcome is a chemical reaction that results in the next name for a human disease contracted from a tick/insect bite.

Are we to believe that all these newly discovered diseases and reactions from tick/insect bites have always been around and that due to better diagnostic techniques and technology, they are now being discovered? I don’t happen to buy into the explanation as the sole reason, no more than I blame everything on Climate Change.

It may be years and years before any of this can be explained. When a human – and I suppose an insect – ingest a chemical, the chances are pretty good that that chemical may undergo some kind of change. The chemical may or may not remain in its original state or chemical make-up. With several changes and/or concoctions of drugs/chemicals being interchanged and interacted between human and insect bodies, it only makes sense to me that chemical reactions occur. We like to call them “allergic reactions.”

Whatever we call them, the fact remains that some people, according to their own biological and chemical composition, may or may not react to certain insect bites.

While we can control some of what we ingest for chemicals, i.e. 37 flavors of drugs our doctors, while “practicing” medicine (giving us chemicals to see what happens), prescribe, and eating better foods, it’s impossible to rid our systems of all of them because these “pollutants” saturate our air and the government regularly practices filling our atmosphere with chemicals in the name of “seeding” clouds to “control” the weather.

The bottom line is that we should expect to hear of more ticks/insects supposedly carrying more and other and undiscovered “diseases” all due to uncontrolled and excessive ingestion of chemicals…all for our health, mind you.

Just thinking logically! Scary isn’t it?

Holy Roman Empire State Targets “Carbon Neutrality” by 2050

It’s all a big joke, yet nobody sees it!

The governor of the Holy Roman Empire State has been working toward legislation that would turn New York “carbon neutral” by 2050, a declaration that is as meaningless as building a border wall, ending a war, or putting men on the moon. It’s all a big joke – a political football.

In an article found at E&E News, a statement, promising to make the list of the Golden Horse Excrement Award recipients, Governor Cuomo said, “This transformation to a new green economy is very expensive. We don’t have the luxury of using funding for political purposes.”

There isn’t a politician or political entity that exists that doesn’t make everything political. To think otherwise means you’re a fool. Talk is cheap and lies are the driving force behind all political campaigns since the beginning of time, and yet, their hope remains with their man-gods regardless.

Trump campaigned hard in the race leading up to the election in 2016 on building a wall at the U.S./Mexican border. And how has construction of that wall gone? I thought so. Successful in lying to his automatonic zombie followers for 4 years and keeping them hopeful enough to keep giving him money and votes, he kicked off his reelection campaign yesterday in Florida by promising to immediately deport millions of “illegal” aliens. He won’t! He can’t! He can only make promises to an ignorant and distracted mass knowing what he says is more important than what he does.

I would assume Trump will wear out the wall rhetoric and deportation promises, while acting tough threatening military might, long enough to get reelected and then it’s back to business as usual.

I would also assume that the governor of the Holy Roman Empire State is no different than Trump. They are guided and directed by the same archons within the Global Power Structure. Unfortunately, the blind and deceived subject serfs know no better and continue their worship of man gods, willfully participating in the Whore of Babylon’s evil ways, eagerly wearing the “Mark of the Beast.”

People choose to see what they want to see and choose to do what they want to do. They choose to seek peace through the works of men ruled by Satan.

Combined “Brilliance” at North American Moose Conference

It is most difficult to get reliable and accurate information from just about ANY media source. Here is but one example.

I did not attend this conference on moose. All that I have had a chance to read about it I found in this Bangor Daily News article. As readers, we must understand that information contained in this article is from the perspective of the author…period. If the author is a Climate Change zealot, naturally the article will only provide support for their religious beliefs, perhaps overlooking contrary data or information provided. It matters not the complete outcome of the conference and all thoughts and determinations, the readers are subjected to personal perspectives of the author regardless of the writer’s intentions.

Having said this, this remains an attempt at sharing some thoughts and my own perspective on what I know about the North American Moose Conference, combined with years of knowledge and research about moose and in particular moose ticks and large predator mortality.

According to the article in question, Maine appears to be the only state (region) where the winter tick is killing off the moose herd. (Makes one wonder if that is true and Climate Change is the cause, aren’t these other areas being subjected to the same Climate Change?) I will make a note right now that compared to the other regions where biologists in attendance at the conference said ticks aren’t the problem, Maine has gobs more moose than any of the other regions. Is there a correlation? And why does Maine have gobs more moose? Does the spruce budworm after effects have anything to do with it? Does growing an artificially high number of moose related?

Keeping in line with the unreliability of good and accurate news information, we also read that in Minnesota, one attendee said, “We had a very high neo-nate mortality. And two-thirds of that was wolf predation.”

I will most certainly guarantee that if you were to contact the Minnesota authorities about wolf predation and moose survival, the “official” line would state nothing about wolves killing off the moose herd. Regardless of long-time historical accounts from Minnesota that wolves have always had devastating effects on moose herds, officials there will tell you the problem is…you guessed it – Climate Change. Who let this person out?

The article in question states that the problems with moose herd management throughout North America varies from ticks, to predation by wolves, to disease, to unregulated hunting, etc. but it just seems an irresistible result of brainwashing that Climate Change is the problem. I can’t help but wonder how much good scientific study has been destroyed or wasted due to catechized indoctrination of the false impacts of a man-created religion (politics) of global warming – now generically referred to as Climate Change?

Perhaps there is some hope. It has taken many years for Maine, with a few years of moose study under their belt, to admit that winter ticks might be destroying the moose herd. There has also been some hints that perhaps an artificially inflated herd is responsible for an intensification of the the winter tick.

I have stated in the past that if scientists want to blame the problems of moose management on the winter tick, maybe it’s time to do some studying of the winter tick. There is danger in that these days, as there is danger in any, so-called, scientific research. Scientism rules and most “scientific” research is nothing but useless garbage that mostly better represents a good dose of propaganda – outcome based research – it’s where the money is.

However, there are signs that there needs to be better studies (not influenced by the false demons of Climate Change) about the tick.

In a separate article, also found in the Bangor Daily News, about how this winter tick “quests” and finds a winter home on board a warm, blood-filled moose, we read some comments from attendees at this conference about that winter tick that remains mostly misunderstood and wrongly said to thrive on “Climate Change.” (Whatever conveniently fits the narrative of the day.)

They got it right about how ticks climb vegetation in the Fall and lie in wait for a moose to walk by at such time they jump on the moose for a long winter’s ride participating in the blood letting…if you will.

They also get it partly right when they state that “early snow” will “…knocks that vegetation down and knocks the ticks down on the ground.”

This is a bit misleading though. At the time that the winter tick is questing (late Summer or early Fall – around the same time that the moose is rutting which adds to the enhanced possibility of getting ticks due to increased travel) what are the chances of “early snow?” And what are the chances that this “early snow” is substantial enough to “knocks that vegetation down and knocks the ticks down on the ground?”

Just about never. In regions throughout Maine, rutting and questing happen most often long before “early snow.”

While it may be fun to talk about and wish for “early snow,” none of us have any control over that weather and leaving it to chance (Mother Nature) wishing and wanting will do absolutely nothing to responsibly manage a moose herd.

Also mentioned as a deterrent to the tick population is drought. Once again, this may be an accurate claim, but perhaps the chances of a drought in the Fall being an effective killer of ticks are about as good as “early snow.”

Most often discussed in tick gabbing circles is the need for a lot of snow and cold to “kill the ticks.” This is really what I’ve come to call Romance Biology or Voodoo Science (coined by former USFWS biologist Jim Beers). For winters to be cold enough, long enough you have to approach the Arctic Circle. That’s why ticks aren’t a problem on Alaska moose.

As a side note, a biologist from Alaska made this statement: “Winter ticks aren’t a problem there. They don’t exist.”

Not to lose the point of his perspective of winter ticks in Alaska, but it is not totally accurate to say winter ticks “don’t exist” there. They may exist but negligibly. And the reason they might exist is because irresponsible researchers took winter ticks into that region just to see if they would survive. They did and that’s how you have “some” ticks in that region.

If one spends all their time focusing on how “early snow” and “drought” can have an effect on moose, sensible things are overlooked in exchange for blaming the lack of “early snow” or lack of a drought on Climate Change – a hopeless and irresponsible excuse for doing nothing. You can’t get rid of the winter tick. They are a viable species that can survive in extreme heat and drought as well as moisture and extreme cold temperatures. And we have no control over that. We do have control over the number of moose (food supply) we manage.

What studies that do exist on the winter tick, can tell us that a better deterrent in tick questing is wind. Ticks can’t hang on to vegetation forever and strong winds, which odds are probably better to have than early snow or drought, knock the ticks off vegetation forcing them to begin their quest back up the plants. Persistent winds could be quite effective. Maybe someone needs to make a claim that winds, or lack thereof, is a product of Climate Change.

Completely missing from this one news article is any discussion about reducing the moose population in order to reduce the tick population. Among sensible biologists (mostly those not overwhelmed by Climate Change) the ONLY way to mitigate winter ticks is to mitigate the number of moose….period.

Most of us don’t really know all that was discussed at this moose conference. All we have here is a little bit of information about Maine’s problem in dealing with winter ticks and the toll it is taking on the state’s moose herd.

Perhaps someday, if the Scientismists don’t completely win out, somebody will figure this all out. We could do as some suggest and let Nature do the job of management but I assure all readers, that’s not the ugly, rotten mess we really want to be subjected too.

Seriously, it’s time to can the false claims associated with the politics and religion of global warming and get down to some real, honest scientific research of value.

In case you might not have figured it out yet, I’m not holding my breath waiting.

The NRA Is Also a Swamp That Should Be Drained

I have been reading stuff lately that tells me the NRA operations by the upper executives is no different than all other political organizations, all of which lose (or never had) sight of who they are, what they do and supposedly whom they work for. There’s trouble at the NRA.

Like all organizations that become too big for their britches, we discover wasteful spending and corruption, followed by distracting techniques hoped to draw member’s attention away from the dirty laundry.

Why would anybody…no, seriously…why would ANYBODY think that the NRA (National Rifle Association) is somehow immune to all the crap and corruption that we find flourishing in all political, corporate, military groups, etc? And, why would anyone think that the NRA is not a part of the so-called, and laughable, SWAMP the uninformed complain about in Washington? It tickles me that ignorant people (meaning they have no knowledge or background into anything real but love to latch onto catch words and phrases sort of like high school cheerleaders attempting to keep interest and excitement in their events) think a “Swamp” is something new, when in reality “Swamps” have existed since Adam and Eve.

The NRA is a swamp that is kept muddy from the very members and cheerleaders of the political Swamps that head the corruption in Washington and all centers of political interest.

I read an open letter to the NRA published by Ammoland to Wayne LaPierre, head of the NRA present. Oh, but let’s not try to hide anything here. The author of the open letter happens to be: “…an NRA instructor and member of the Los Padres “Friends of the NRA” committee.”

So, what do we call this guy, a Swamplette?

I was also curious about the comments that followed the open letter left by readers. One reader said, “This is exactly what we hate about our elected officials (Congress & Senate)! Enriching themselves at the expense of voters who trusted them.”

I ask the question again. Why should anybody think the Swamp of the NRA is any different than the Swamp of Washington/Congress/White House? When you stop and think (nobody does anymore) about who heads the NRA throughout history, only an idiot would think leadership at the NRA would be any different than leadership in Washington. After all, NRA past presidents, for the most part, have simply moved from political power over to head the NRA. The majority of past NRA presidents have been politicians, political activists/lobbyists, movie stars, high-profile criminals, war heroes, etc. The NRA, in choosing its leadership, looks for someone who is part of the “Swamp” (sorry, nobody really knows what a Swamp is) and of a high profile in order to entice people to join and waste their money on the corruption known as the NRA Swamp. Go ahead. You love to do that.

People actually believe the NRA is independent of Washington and has done so many remarkable things. The writer of the Open Letter even begins his letter by stating that if it hadn’t been for the NRA, “firearms would have been banned…” in the 1990s. Seriously! He wrote that. All bow down to the NRA.

Suppose for a minute that the NRA was abolished, or that due to corruption, members left the confines of the corrupt NRA and headed over to other corrupt gun owner/gun rights groups. I doubt anything would really change, except Wayne LaPierre might not be wearing such expensive suits, but perhaps we might have been able to actually keep more of our gun rights if the NRA hadn’t given them away for political reasons. As the old saying goes, who needs enemies when we got friends like this?

If the “Swamp” is so bad, then why do we shop at the Swamp looking for the leadership for our political fraternities? When the NRA, and other entities, are headed by former corrupt politicians (all politicians are corrupt, that is why they are politicians) why shouldn’t we believe that the NRA is all part of the bigger, corrupt world of politics? Geez, we just don’t get it. We don’t WANT to GET IT!

Oh, don’t act surprised or angry that I should write such stuff about the NRA. Get your heads out of the sand and stop thinking just because you’re a member of the NRA it is actually looking out for your best interest. All they care about is what’s in your wallet and how they can get it away from you. So far, they have been quite remarkable at getting a lot of that green stuff.

ALL Swamps suck!

Due Process IS Damned

Maine is but one example of how, what is left of and thought of as our rights under the U.S. Constitution and the Constitutions of individual States, are being systematically destroyed. This destruction is actually all part of the administering of the Constitutions by administrators/the elected, mostly ignorant and definitely bred to be the good totalitarians they are in order to carry out the wants and demands of the fascists who rule.

Perhaps, rather than state that what is “thought to be our rights under the constitutions” are being destroyed, it is more precise to say that, to some, a revelation of the actual intent of the constitution is being revealed and as such appears as a destruction of rights.

Originally Maine proposed a bill, LD 1312, a precise “red flag” bill that blatantly would ensure that any person THOUGHT to be a danger to themselves or others would be stripped of due process of the law all in the name of someone’s, or group of someones’, perspective as to their mental abilities and capacities – a value-weighted mindset derived by one’s ideology.

The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) and the NRA strongly opposed LD 1312 but for some strange reason they took up the cross of the governor and gun control advocates and went to work to devise a bill that would accomplish the same thing but to a lesser degree. They devised LD 1811, a bit whitewashed from LD 1312 but still stripped an accused person of their “right” (or at least a system partially shared by others) to due process. LD 1811, wrongly pares the loss of due process down to a minimum of 14 days but still provides for a person to effectively go on endlessly in “protective custody” and having their private property, which happens to be property thought to be protected under both the Federal and State Constitutions right to keep and bear arms (and shall never be questioned), with many of the meted out rights withdrawn.

It was brought to my attention by a friend that in testimony before the legislative subcommittee the sponsor of LD 1312, the original “red flag” proposal, stated that the intent of the bill was to “get the guns out of the house.” While the sponsors of this bill willingly admit that the bill is intended to take guns away from anyone THEY deem necessary (one law enforcement person and one medical person), it appears as though the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) has approached their attempt at “compromising” with the governor and other gun haters from the perspective of a gun rights proposal with little attention, perhaps due to ignorance, given to the blatant violation of due process and what would appear as a deliberate disregard of a person’s right to not have their property taken away first and at some future point in time administer some degree of due process. While SAM states its opposition to a loss of a person’s right to Due Process, they certainly have a strange way of showing it.

About a year ago, I wrote a piece called, “By Whom is Due Process of Law Administered?” I reread that the other day and once again this morning to examine how my thoughts at that time coincide with my thoughts at the moment as regards this red flag law proposal taking place in Maine and other states. I find that the year-old article is precise and certainly applies to the actions of today. I hope you take the time to read and/or reread that piece.

Here is some of what I wrote: “

What may have been your grandfather’s “Due Process” doesn’t even carry the same DNA as today’s Due Process and at the rate things are changing and that “balanced constitutional system” gets more and more out of whack – to those with sense enough to see it – we have as much hope remaining to cling to Due Process as we do the Second Amendment or any other Constitutional article that might stand in the way of the Global Power Structure.

“Due Process is a subjective matter and was designed as such. Due Process is as much as society will tolerate and the government can get away with. Even though society believes that the Constitution gives them Due Process and that this “balanced constitutional system” works, they are wrong. We even constantly hear of those screaming to get out and vote in order to get those wanting to upset that “balanced constitutional system” (rigged) out of office and replaced with another clone/drone and yet, nothing ever changes. Oppression and tyranny march forward in a slow and methodical pace, hidden behind a shroud of watered-down constitutional rights and due process.

“Invoking Due Process is a worthless instrument. So long as Congress “makes all laws which are necessary and proper” and voting in new blood doesn’t change anything, then we are left with but one choice – continue to convince ourselves that we are guaranteed Due Process, along with all those other “rights” meted out by men for slaves.

“Due Process be Damned!!!!!”

What is contained in the constitution is doled out to the citizen-serfs as it benefits the administrative governments and the Global Power Structure. Until such time as people can, somehow, get a grasp on that reality, all of the rest of this becomes an exercise in frustration, anger, and endless futility.

Think back of the turmoil that surrounded the attacks on the World Trade Center. Then President Bush and his flock of fascists crammed the “Patriot Act” down our throats. Most American’s bought into the song and dance and eagerly gave up certain rights (they thought they had) and permitted the government to set aside any thoughts of Due Process in exchange for “SECURITY.” We bought it and still do.

Here we are sneaking up on 20 years later and we see totalitarian subjects/activists doing what the government did back then. How convenient for the Feds and now the state governments. In the name of “security” and “public safety” we are staged to continue an onslaught against liberties and freedom regardless of the effect.

If Due Process is allotted in ways that are only beneficial to the wishes of the Ruling Establishment, then the frustration and anger becomes prevalent because we believe a “right” has been taken away, when, in fact, it was never there as we thought…or at least as a clear and precise guaranteed right.

While American citizens try to hang on to what is a mixed up allotment of “rights” and “privileges,” in hopes that it will make their lives better, it becomes even more discouraging and confrontational when those whom we thought share the belief that rights, regardless of the control we may or may not have over them, are worth trying to protect, are now seemingly working to dismantle in the name of security. It all sounds too familiar. What are we doing?

Even if we don’t have much of any control over our perceived rights, doing what we can to slow down the governments from complete and instant tyrannical control may be in our best interest. Getting on board to do the work of tyrannical governments makes no sense and makes one question why anyone would do such a thing.

Secretary Bernhardt Proposes Increasing Public Access to Hunting and Fishing on 1.4 Million Acres Nationwide

Proposal Includes New Opportunities at 74 National Wildlife Refuges and 15 National Fish Hatcheries

June 5, 2019

Oak Harbor, Ohio – Furthering the Trump Administration’s efforts to increase access to public lands, U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt today announced from Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge a proposal for new or expanded hunting and fishing opportunities at 74 national wildlife refuges and 15 national fish hatcheries managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) across more than 1.4 million acres.

“President Trump is committed to expanding public access on public lands, and this proposal is executing on that directive by opening and increasing more access to hunting and fishing by the Fish and Wildlife Service at more stations and across more acres than ever before,” said Secretary Bernhardt. “Hunting and fishing are more than just traditional pastimes as they are also vital to the conservation of our lands and waters, our outdoor recreation economy, and our American way of life. These refuges and hatcheries provide incredible opportunities for sportsmen and women and their families across the country to pass on a fishing and hunting heritage to future generations and connect with wildlife.”

The proposal would increase the number of units in the Service’s National Wildlife Refuge System where the public may hunt from 377 to 382, and the number where fishing would be permitted would be increased from 312 to 316. The proposal would also formally open lands on 15 hatcheries of the National Fish Hatchery System to hunting or sport fishing for the first time.

The proposal also outlines a comprehensive revision and simplification of all refuge-specific hunting and fishing regulations in all 50 states to more closely match state regulations while continuing to ensure safe and compatible opportunities. The Service worked closely with the states in preparing the proposed rule.

“Well managed hunting and fishing are the backbone of conservation in this country, but inconsistent or overly complex regulations can act as a disincentive,” said Service Principal Deputy Director Margaret Everson. “By aligning our refuge regulations with our state partners, we are reducing confusion and the regulatory burden on the American public, helping ensure the tradition and benefits of hunting and fishing can continue.”

New proposed refuge opportunities include the opening of Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin to hunting and fishing for the first time and the opening of Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge in Wyoming to deer and elk hunting for the first time on lands already open to other hunting.

Proposed expansions of refuge opportunities include the opening of new acres at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in Florida to existing upland and big game hunting, and, at Great River National Wildlife Refuge in Illinois and Missouri, the expansion of season dates, times and methods for existing deer, turkey and other upland game hunting to align with state seasons.

Proposed changes at hatcheries include the formal opening of lands on Leadville National Fish Hatchery in Colorado to migratory game bird, upland game and big game hunting, and the formal opening of lands on Iron River National Fish Hatchery in Wisconsin to migratory game bird, upland game and big game hunting. Inks Dam National Fish Hatchery in Texas and Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery in Washington are proposing to formally open their lands to sport fishing. An update to hatchery regulations is also included in the proposed rule.

“The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies is delighted by this announcement of a continuing commitment by the Department of the Interior to expanded access for regulated hunting and angling, on National Wildlife Refuges, in partnership with state fish and wildlife agencies,” stated Ed Carter, President of the Association and Executive Director of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. He added, “We need to get people outside to enjoy the lands and waters, and fish and wildlife resources, of our great nation. This is an important step in that direction!”

“The announcement today by Secretary Bernhardt is incredibly welcome news and builds off great progress in increasing access to refuge lands the last two years,” said John Devney, Senior Vice President, Delta Waterfowl. “Duck hunters have been leaders in investing in the refuge system and this action will provide them with new access and opportunities. We are sincerely grateful to Secretary Bernhardt and the Fish and Wildlife Service staff who have worked hard to create these new opportunities for hunters.”

“The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation applauds Secretary Bernhardt for his efforts to expand hunting and fishing opportunities within the National Wildlife Refuge System,” said Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation President Jeff Crane. “This announcement builds off momentum generated over the last few years through Interior Secretarial Orders, and advances recent recommendations submitted by the Hunting and Shooting Sports Conservation Council to increase hunter and angler access to federal lands and waters, including the Refuge System.”

Hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities contributed more than $156 billion in economic activity in communities across the United States in 2016, according to the Service’s National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, published every five years. More than 101 million Americans — 40 percent of the U.S. population age 16 and older — pursue wildlife-related recreation, including hunting and fishing.

The Service will seek comments from the public on the proposed rule for 45 days, beginning with publication in the Federal Register in coming days. The notice will be available at http://www.regulations.gov, Docket Number: FWS-HQ-NWRS-2019-0040, and will include details on how to submit your comments. An interim copy of the proposed rule is now available.

The Service intends to finalize the proposed changes in time for the upcoming 2019-2020 hunting seasons.

A complete list of all refuges and hatcheries in the proposal is available in the proposed rule and online.

For more than 145 years, the National Fish Hatchery System has worked collaboratively with tribes, states, landowners, partners and stakeholders to promote and maintain healthy, self-sustaining populations of fish and other aquatic species. There are 70 national fish hatcheries visited by more than two million people each year. Hatcheries offer opportunities for viewing the operations and learning about fish, as well as activities such as fishing, hunting, hiking, sightseeing, nature study, birdwatching and photography.

The Refuge System is an unparalleled network of 567 national wildlife refuges and 38 wetland management districts. There is a national wildlife refuge within an hour’s drive of most major metropolitan areas. More than 55 million Americans visit refuges every year. National wildlife refuges provide vital habitat for thousands of species and access to world-class recreation, from fishing, hunting and boating to nature watching, photography and environmental education.

Under the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, the Service permits hunting and fishing along with four other types of wildlife-dependent recreation, including wildlife photography, environmental education, wildlife observation and interpretation, when they are compatible with an individual refuge’s purpose and mission. Hunting, within specified limits, is currently permitted on 340 wildlife refuges and 37 wetland management districts. Fishing is currently permitted on 278 wildlife refuges and 34 wetland management districts.

The Service manages hunting and fishing programs to ensure sustainable wildlife populations while also offering other wildlife-dependent recreation on public lands.

SAM’s Red Flag Gun Control “Compromise” is a BIG FASCIST JOKE!

The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) should be embarrassed and SAM members should be angry that this organization worked on and apparently is supporting an LD 1811 “compromise” red flag, anti-Second Amendment, anti-Due Process proposed bill.

It is a constant battle in attempts to protect, as much as is actually possible within a rigged system that treats the Federal and State constitutions as pieces of toilet paper, the rights and freedoms we have left (very few if any). Despite the truth that law makers, at both the Federal and State level pay no attention to a constitution, falsely believed by most as written for them, groups/organizations like the SAM, NRA, etc. think they are doing somebody a favor by working on and rewriting a “compromise” gun control and anti-right to due process bill fantastically thought to be something of value.

It just blows my mind that a fascist-style government proposes to take away freedoms enjoyed by many people and groups like SAM, NRA, etc. rush in with a “compromise” as though that is satisfactory. Either a right should be protected or not. Giving it away one compromise at a time has a very bad ending. Can’t people see this? Evidently not.

When did such ignorant people begin thinking compromising our rights away was a good thing. Stupid is as stupid does.

If people actually support the Second Amendment, why do they willing work to “compromise” it away? If people actually support a person’s right to due process of the law, why then do they willingly work to “compromise” it away? Is that ALL that is left of one’s perceived value of these things? Evidently there is no value left to rights and freedom regardless as to whether such rights and freedoms are unalienable or meted out by a fascist government and supported by totalitarian members of our society such as the SAM, NRA, GOMA, etc.

The intent of LD 1811, regardless of what people attempt to tell you, is about doing just exactly what idiot President Donald Trump (who hates guns and gun owners until he needs their votes) said after the Florida school shooting, that we should go take away the guns that belong to anyone “WE” THINK might be “dangerous” and then worry about Due Process later. Heil, mein Fuhrer!

Well, welcome LD 1811. It’s intent is to give some uneducated “medical practitioner” full power to decide whether any person brought before them by “law enforcement” (that is the same law enforcement who gun down unarmed people and are justified for their actions) might pose a threat to themselves or other people.

It appears that SAM’s compromise is to demand that a person is given back their right to due process within 14 days…as though somehow this is what was intended by due process?

Note: I began watching a video that SAM put on their Farcebook (right word) page. I could only stomach it up to the point where Trahan said that this “group” (together in the video) brought in a lawyer to make sure that everything they did would not disrupt a person’s right to due process. If anyone in this group, represented by SAM, NRA, and GOMA, and the lawyer they hired, believes that the work they did on LD 1811 is not a disruption of one’s right to due process, one has to wonder from whence they received their brainwashing. It is obvious the brainwashing is well-entrenched.

But unseen and perhaps blindly ignorant of, is the fact that within this 14 days, the “court” must decide whether the “evidence” given them is reason enough to behead a man or let him go and return his confiscated weapons. Tell me that you really don’t believe that a rush to “judgement” by any “court” would render a proper decision and in most cases the judge will simply rule that a person is guilty until proven innocent, i.e. that, like the 14 days, no person is entitled to protection under the piece of crap CONstitution because some “medical practitioner” and lazy judge have taken it upon themselves to be gOD. No court wants to become responsible for anyone who now has been brought before the public and accused of being a nut job – defined as someone who might be a threat to themselves and/or others. It then becomes easier to simply say a full hearing must be heard and in the meantime this accused person has had their rights taken from them (life destroyed)…all in the name of saving the world from deranged mass murderers, which can’t be done anyway.

Talk about a very bad precedent that can trickle down to every aspect of our lives; an act that men have died for believing it was the backbone of the “freedom” they were giving their life for – innocent until proven guilty and due process. WHAT ARE WE DOING? Hasn’t it become obvious that the CONstitution, including the Bill of Rights, was not written for or intended for you and I. All governments, protected by their constitutions, only mete out freedoms as it becomes in the governments best interest.

Nothing is perfect in this crazy upside down world we have created. No law can stop the insanity this society has created. Living in a world where once we enjoyed seemingly countless freedoms and granting a person innocent until proven guilty, sometimes caused troubles. It’s not perfect. Taking away those freedoms only amounts to fascist rule and oppression. This approach has never worked throughout history, and yet, here we are with well-intentioned people willingly ceding their freedoms and believing they are doing the right thing.

And now, groups like SAM, and most of the really stupid, non thinking public, can’t see their own destruction by “compromising” any rights they once thought they had away and flushing them, willingly, down the toilet drain.

Regardless of any and all other window dressing that might be applied in this fascist “compromise” bill, the proposal should be an embarrassment to the name of SAM being attached to it and said to have eagerly participated in.

It appears too late for SAM to back out of this and so, I would hope that regardless of the Legislatures’ vote on this bill, members of SAM (unless they are blinded by their own ignorance) should demand the resignation of David Trahan (executive director of SAM) and any member of the Board of Directors who actively worked on this bill and/or support it. The same should be demanded from the NRA and Gun Owners of Maine.

If the majority membership of SAM believes this bill is a good thing, then SAM is no friend of sportsmen who own and use guns, and is absolutely no friend of anyone wishing to retain their right to the due process of law.

Fascist countries are those who operate exactly as this “compromise” bill is suggesting – strong arm the public and worry about whether a person any longer has a right to the “old-fashioned” due process.

Guns: And The Divide Grows

I wonder how many, if any, ask themselves how a people can be so toxically divided and full of anger and hatred? For any who have entertained such thoughts, have you ever thought perhaps this is an orchestrated event? That’s right. It’s not something this is just happening. It’s something that is intended to happen. Besides the anger and hatred that continues to consume and divide this nation, I’m not exactly sure the reason for its intention beyond divide and conquer.

It was only a few years ago – I know some must remember – that any candidate for the U.S. Congress (either houses) and the presidency dared not suggest gun control. It was an undisputed formula for defeat.

Our post-normal existence has turned 180 degrees to where we see candidate Joe “The Groper” Biden declaring gun control and that he will “defeat” the NRA. (Historical Note: Who remembers when presidential candidate Edmund Muskie shed a tear because people were dragging his wife through the political knothole? That tear destroyed his run for the presidency. Today, we have a known woman groper, an acclaimed socialist, a homosexual, etc. etc. running for president and nobody blinks an eye. Tell me nothing has changed.)

However, Biden’s intent to “defeat” the NRA is that he will propose legislation the NRA opposes and he thinks he can pass it. I was kind of wondering if Biden was intending to “defeat,” as in get rid of the NRA. Maybe doing so wouldn’t be such a bad idea. While some believe the NRA is the greatest thing since spandex, I see the NRA as not much more than an organization that is slowly demolishing my right to self protection rather than those people and organizations attempting to do it all at once. Maybe it’s time to call out the real Second Amendment supporters and tell the NRA to kiss my behind.

But, back to the topic at hand. The divide continues and is growing at breakneck speed. It seems that anything that will cause more anger and rage directed at opposing “sides” (ideology) is the name of the game.

The situations that exist are so well crafted that ideology is unshakeable. With false beliefs securely grounded into individual psyches, plans have shifted away from creating two sides and the focus has become how to grow that divide.

Another example is one that we can find infiltrating even the tiniest of micro-villages in the depths of Western Maine. The Board of Selectmen of the Town of Paris voted unanimously to declare the town a Second Amendment sanctuary city.

Yes, such a move is only symbolic but certainly the mindsets are such that it causes the anger and hatred to grow. In the article we can read that the head of the Maine Immigrant’s Rights Coalition thinks the idea of declaring a Second Amendment sanctuary city, “is to create fear and conflict.”

He also claims that immigration sanctuary cities, designed to disregard immigration laws of this country and Second Amendment sanctuary cities, designed to send a message that communities believe in the unalienable right to self protection and the right to keep and bear arms, are not the same. Any comparison “is cynical and dangerous.”

The only way any person can see that one declaration is “cynical and dangerous” and the other is not, is if they have been completely brainwashed. Misguided and crafted anger and hatred funneled into blinded and ignorant understandings that a complete disregard for law and order pertaining to immigration laws is somehow acceptable and those wishing to protect the guarantees of the Bill of Rights is “cynical and dangerous” show just how cynical and dangerous things have become.

Back in the days when candidates for political office understood the dangers of threatening one’s constitutional and unalienable rights, a certain degree of caution, perhaps respect(?), existed. No longer. It’s all out war. The animosity, hostility, and antagonism that rules our society blinds us to the point we are incapable of comprehending our own foolishness causing failure to decipher whether differences exist or caring if they do.

How sad.
