House Natural Resource Committee Letter to President Trump

*Editor’s Note* – Anyone with any sense of sanity might want to ask why it is that the President of the United States is considering a “restructuring” of the Department of Interior when he has failed so miserably in making appointments within that department. It has been nearly one year since he walked into the White House and still positions remain vacant. Is this part of his restructuring plan?

Coming, The First Church Of Artificial Intelligence

Inside the First Church of Artificial Intelligence  

Anthony Levandowski makes an unlikely prophet. Dressed Silicon Valley-casual in jeans and flanked by a PR rep rather than cloaked acolytes, the engineer known for self-driving cars—and triggering a notorious lawsuit—could be unveiling his latest startup instead of laying the foundations for a new religion. But he is doing just that. Artificial intelligence has already inspired billion-dollar companies, far-reaching research programs, and scenarios of both transcendence and doom. Now Levandowski is creating its first church.

The documents state that WOTF’s activities will focus on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.” That includes funding research to help create the divine AI itself. The religion will seek to build working relationships with AI industry leaders and create a membership through community outreach, initially targeting AI professionals and “laypersons who are interested in the worship of a Godhead based on AI.” The filings also say that the church “plans to conduct workshops and educational programs throughout the San Francisco/Bay Area beginning this year.”
That timeline may be overly ambitious, given that the Waymo-Uber suit, in which Levandowski is accused of stealing self-driving car secrets, is set for an early December trial. But the Dean of the Way of the Future, who spoke last week with Backchannel in his first comments about the new religion and his only public interview since Waymo filed its suit in February, says he’s dead serious about the project.

“What is going to be created will effectively be a god,” Levandowski tells me in his modest mid-century home on the outskirts of Berkeley, California. “It’s not a god in the sense that it makes lightning or causes hurricanes. But if there is something a billion times smarter than the smartest human, what else are you going to call it?”

Believest thou this?”   John 11:24-26

Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for the Issuance of Depredation Permits for Double-Crested Cormorants

SUMMARY: This notice advises the public of the completion of an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI). The EA analyzed the potential impacts of a proposal to make decisions on depredation permit applications for the annual take (i.e., lethal removal) of up to 51,571 double-crested cormorants, Phalcrocorax
auritus, across 37 central and eastern States and the District of Columbia. The EA considered two alternatives: The proposed action; and the reduced take alternative (which is the preferred alternative). The scope of the EA is to issue permits to manage cormorant damage at aquaculture facilities, protect human health and safety, protect threatened and endangered wildlife, and alleviate damage to property. Based on the analysis contained in the EA, the Service finds that the preferred alternative would not constitute a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment, as outlined in the accompanying FONSI.<<<More>>>

Press Release
Service’s Environmental Assessment Balances Protection of Aquaculture with Conservation of Cormorant Populations

November 14, 2017

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken action towards providing relief to fish production facilities that are suffering significant economic losses due to predation of their fish stocks by double-crested cormorants. The Environmental Assessment released today was completed by the Service under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in consultation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Wildlife Services. It evaluated options for issuing individual permits to lethally control cormorants (known as depredation permits) while ensuring the long-term health of the cormorant population.

Cormorants can feed on fish raised for human consumption and on fish raised for other commercial purposes. In addition, cormorants may cause economic damage to property as well as other damage and conflicts associated with increasing populations.

The EA analyzed options for the issuance of depredation permits for cormorants where there is either significant economic damage to aquaculture facilities, significant damage to native vegetation, significant impact on a threatened or endangered species or significant human safety risks.

It provides a strong biological foundation to ensure cormorant populations are managed responsibly and in compliance with federal laws and regulations, while balancing economic development, human health and safety, endangered species management and other priorities.

Upon publication in the Federal Register on November 15, 2017, aquaculture facility managers and property owners across 37 central and eastern states and the District of Columbia will be able to apply for individual permits for lethal take of double-crested cormorants. The Service expects to begin issuing actual permits prior to cormorant migration this fall.

This review did not include potential damage to recreational and commercial fishing by cormorants. Over the next year, the Service will engage stakeholders in order to assess the biological, social and economic significance of wild fish-cormorant interactions, and to identify a suite of management alternatives. This will include identifying the monitoring needs necessary to address the issue and gathering better scientific information that could be used in the NEPA review and decision making process.

The scale and complexity of the issues involving cormorant control to protect wild free-swimming fish populations is substantial, and not as easily assessed as the impacts on aquaculture. The Service will work with states and tribes to compile scientific information regarding the biological and economic effects of cormorants or their removal on wild fisheries.

The Service is also currently working with state fish and wildlife agencies to assess comprehensive management options for cormorants across the United States.

How To Disagree or Agree With Another Man or Woman In This World

How do you disagree with someone else? Do you simply disagree with what they shared and said? Or do you validate the legal historical record and get into some word search term search etymology research and then either agree or disagree based on that evidence? Or do you simply trust your core beliefs.. Yet perhaps you never validated those core beliefs… Perhaps most if not all core beliefs are false beliefs.. I had to let go of almost all of my core beliefs because it turned out those were false beliefs.. Most people are so convinced their core beliefs are the truth that cognitive dissonance rather than investigation of those beliefs kicks in… Most core beliefs cannot stand the light of day.. Besides all of the political, scientific, philosophical, historical fairy tales going on all around us from birth until death we have the various levels of double speak, reverse language, Hegelian Dialectical… Now in my read searching words and terms of this legal establishment I’ve discovered there is another level of twisted speak that goes beyond double speak.. I’m going to call that triple and fourple speak… Or double speak on top of double speak on top of double speak… Worse the creator of words and terms can play at making any of those words and terms mean whatever they say they mean at any given time in order to preserve their authority over the rest of us scratching our heads trying to comprehend exactly what they mean or meant then now and even later on… The liar of this world has been taking lying to amazing levels of deception… Basically a deception so massive it is incomprehensible to the majority of people, most of whom are not even paying attention..I’m beginning to think that even the deceivers managing their world system don’t know exactly what they really mean either.. Perhaps Heavenly Father really does have a sense of humor and he is simply playing them like the fools they are.. After all most of the garbage they shell out through their official mouth pieces tends to cause me to laugh at them, almost hysterically.. Because they are hysterical crazy fools losing control of their own deceptions.. There is a big difference between belief and know… Same as between black and white..

It’s Always Left Against Right….or Something

After the fake shooting in Texas, as always, the debate over gun control carries on, as ignorant voices claim the high ground, pretending to exude their vast knowledge of history, rights, liberalism, conservatism, progressivism and anything that embellishes the divide and conquer meme so prevalent and yet seemingly impossible to see  – another display of the attributes of the Hegelian Dialectic.

Life in the United States is 100% relegated to the false paradigm of Left and Right. The paradigm is fake but the minds of those who blindly follow either side exemplify the success of the created crises, the result of years of brainwashing and propagandizing. Regardless of the topic at hand, almost always these days a crisis, the only attempt and understanding such an event is either Left or Right – nothing else matters. And so it goes.

In a Town Hall Magazine article, about how the author believes the “Liberal Narrative” is now dead because he says so, the author also refers to himself and all others who think the way he does as “normal.” I’m not sure that would be a correct use of the word. Although I understand what he is trying to say, there is very little “normal” left anywhere in the world – so much so few have knowledge of what the words or liberal, conservative and progressive mean or the history behind them. I’ll spare you the history lesson but encourage you to try on your own. The short of it is the use of such labels are egregiously misappropriated.

Normal to the author is the belief you are a conservative. Normal to the liberal is their own truth, etc.

It is said that conservatism promotes “traditional social institutions in the context of culture and civilization.” Conservatism once emphasized self-reliance and individualism. That aspect of conservatism vanished quite some time ago and only exists as watered down ideology due to our mind manipulated love of government.

With this embedded into our society, one must consider the ignorance of that author when he writes: “When you own a weapon and can defend yourself and your rights, you are a citizen. When you do not, you are a subject.” If you are a citizen, and promote it as something a conservative would strive to become, then what becomes of the “self-reliance and individualism?” Many years ago in Vattel’s Law of Nations, in which many democratically based governments’ constitutions are built upon, it is clearly spelled out that when anyone chooses to become a member of a neighborhood, a town, a county, a state, or nation, they are giving away a portion of their “self-reliance and individualism.” In fact, you become a citizen and by definition you are a subject. The only differences are the degree to which you have offered up your servitude.

When you own a weapon and can defend yourself and your rights, YOU ARE A MAN! Being a citizen means you recognize that your government has granted you that right. Being a man means you understand that you have the right to defend yourself, even from the throes of corrupt governments. It is a struggle to have it both ways, i.e. self-reliance and individualism and dependence on government.

Liberalism, on the other hand, appears to be in even bigger trouble…that is as it pertains to hanging on to any kind of liberal belief. In the true sense of the word and the works and words of men like John Locke, thought by many to be the father of liberalism, I am more liberal than conservative. But that’s not what exists today. Far from it.

Liberalism, by definition, is “founded on the ideas of liberty and equality.” If we are to assume that this ideological philosophy of liberalism is to be shared and experienced by all, then why do today’s liberals want so much to remove liberty and equality from anyone who doesn’t blindly follow them?

Conservatives wander from the their own belief system, once minding their own business, letting others alone while enjoying their own individualism. Conservatives of today are as bent on stopping the liberties of liberals and progressives as liberals and progressives are in stopping the conservatives. What a mess!

It should become clear that all of these political ideologies are skewed and have reached a point where they are shortly running out of space to coexist. I believe this is all by design, but I recognize that nearly all readers will refuse to accept that premise. I cannot force feed you. It is worth gaining a better understanding, but……

The relentless and ignorant debates about guns, gun violence, gun rights, gun control, because of senseless emotions, works wonderfully as a tool to draw attention from what the debate and the staged events are all about.

If you have yet to even question anything beyond a Left vs. Right, childish yelling and banging head session, it would be impossible for you to learn anything.

Why Do the Atheists Evolutionists and Scientismists Devise A Vain And Hopeless Plot?

Psalm 2:1-71599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

The Prophet David rejoiceth, that notwithstanding his enemies’ rage, yet God will continue his kingdom forever, and advance it even to the end of the world, ?10 and therefore exhorteth kings and rulers, that they would humbly submit themselves under God’s yoke, because it is in vain to resist God.? Herein is figured Christ’s kingdom.

Why do the [a]heathen rage, and the people murmur in vain.

The kings of the earth band themselves, and the Princes are assembled together against the Lord, and against his [b]Christ.

[c]Let us break their bands, and cast their cords from us.

But he that dwelleth in the heaven shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

[d]Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure, saying,

Even I have set my King upon Zion mine holy mountain.

I will declare the [e]decree: that is, the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my son; this [f]day have I begotten thee.

After Sutherland Springs Church Massacre, Anglican Bishop Considers Arming Himself at the Altar

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Washington, DC/Pine Grove Mills, PA  A man of the cloth in Pennsylvania who also wears a badge is now contemplating packing a pistol in the pulpit to protect his parish.

Bishop Council Nedd II, rector of St. Alban’s Anglican Church in Pine Grove Mills, Pennsylvania and co-chairman of the Project 21 black leadership network, is reassessing security at his church after the mass murder of worshipers at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on November 5. Nedd is also a Pennsylvania state constable.

In a commentary published by Project 21, Nedd wrote:

A pistol in the pulpit may sound extreme, but – when people of faith increasingly appear to be targets of armed evil – a good shepherd must do what he must do to protect the flock from the wolves. From my perspective as both a bishop and a cop, people must be protected. This includes in sacred spaces.

Nedd previously chose not to carry a firearm while participating in St. Alban’s services despite credible threats to his own safety and personal experience providing security for other places of worship. Growing religious intolerance is causing him to rethink this personal gun restriction, which he will be discussing with his congregation:

It’s shocking that, in a nation founded on the idea of religious freedom, there are monsters out there who now think it’s fair game to target people of faith with deadly force. I’m no stranger to religious bigotry and the condescension of non-believers, but recent church shootings like those in Charleston, South Carolina; Antioch, Tennessee and this latest one in Sutherland Springs bring intolerance to a frightening new level.

Nedd’s full commentary, “Packing in the Pulpit: This Man of God May Arm Himself to Protect His Flock,” is available for reprint on a free, non-exclusive basis and is available by clicking here.

“I fully support Council Nedd’s change of heart on the presence of firearms in church. It’s only natural to want to preserve the sanctity of the sanctuary. Carrying a firearm in the pulpit as an act of preparation does just that,” said fellow Project 21 co-chairman Stacy Washington, a syndicated talk radio host and U.S. Air Force veteran. “”In light of the increasing frequency of atheists and socialists shooting politically conservative people, whether in ballparks or in churches during services, it’s important to allow those who are properly permitted to carry their concealed weapons into the church. Not only is this lawful, but it is Biblical. Jesus’s disciples carried swords as he directed them to do in Luke22:36: “He said to them, ‘But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.'”
