OMG For Sure We’re ALL GONNA DIE!!!!

Today I was reading the newsletter from Shake, Rattle, and Troll, soon to become HuntingFishing.com, and I noticed a snapshot of a Fox News report that said global warming was going to ruin the beer industry, causing less beer production, etc.

OH MY GOD! Finally, the alarmist morons have figured out that if they attack the very heart and soul of America threatening to take away their beer supply, all hell might just break loose.

Read the end of the world forecast from the idiots at Fox News!

Those “Dam” Beavers Be Damned

A friend today sent me a news article about how beavers are building dams near a road and a neighborhood in Farmingdale, Maine. It seems these days there is no simple solution to ridding public safety and property destruction problems caused by beavers.

In reading the article, I was reminded of the quite hilarious story of a letter written by a landowner in Michigan who was accused by the state environmental Nazis of unlawfully building dams and causing flooding and damage.

Evidently, the event is fabricated but is worthy of a good laugh – art imitating life. Below is a copy of that letter.

Dear Mr. Price:

Re: DEQ File No. 97-59-0023; T11N, R10W, Sec 20; Montcalm County

Your certified letter dated 12/17/97 has been handed to me to respond to. You sent out a great deal of carbon copies to a lot of people, but you neglected to include their addresses. You will, therefore, have to send them a copy of my response.

First of all, Mr. Ryan DeVries is not the legal landowner and/or contractor at 2088 Dagget, Pierson, Michigan – I am the legal owner and a couple of beavers are in the (State unauthorized) process of constructing and maintaining two wood “debris” dams across the outlet stream of my Spring Pond. While I did not pay for, nor authorize their dam project, I think they would be highly offended you call their skillful use of natural building materials “debris”. I would like to challenge you to attempt to emulate their dam project any dam time and/or any dam place you choose. I believe I can safely state there is no dam way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic.

As to your dam request the beavers first must fill out a dam permit prior to the start of this type of dam activity, my first dam question to you is: are you trying to discriminate against my Spring Pond Beavers or do you require all dam beavers throughout this State to conform to said dam request? If you are not discriminating against these particular beavers, please send me completed copies of all those other applicable beaver dam permits. Perhaps we will see if there really is a dam violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Michigan Compiled Laws annotated. My first concern is – aren’t the dam beavers entitled to dam legal representation? The Spring Pond Beavers are financially destitute and are unable to pay for said dam representation – so the State will have to provide them with a dam lawyer.

The Department’s dam concern that either one or both of the dams failed during a recent rain event causing dam flooding is proof we should leave the dam Spring Pond Beavers alone rather than harassing them and calling their dam names. If you want the dam stream “restored” to a dam free-flow condition – contact the dam beavers – but if you are going to arrest them (they obviously did not pay any dam attention to your dam letter — being unable to read English) – be sure you read them their dam Miranda first. As for me, I am not going to cause more dam flooding or dam debris jams by interfering with these dam builders. If you want to hurt these dam beavers – be aware I am sending a copy of your dam letter and this response to PETA. If your dam Department seriously finds all dams of this nature inherently hazardous and truly will not permit their existence in this dam State – I seriously hope you are not selectively enforcing this dam policy – or once again both I and the Spring Pond Beavers will scream prejudice!

In my humble opinion, the Spring Pond Beavers have a right to build their dam unauthorized dams as long as the sky is blue, the grass is green and water flows downstream. They have more dam right than I to live and enjoy Spring Pond. So, as far as I and the beavers are concerned, this dam case can be referred for more dam elevated enforcement action now. Why wait until 1/31/98? The Spring Pond Beavers may be under the dam ice then, and there will be no dam way for you or your dam staff to contact/harass them then.

In conclusion, I would like to bring to your attention a real environmental quality (health) problem; bears are actually defecating in our woods. I definitely believe you should be persecuting the defecating bears and leave the dam beavers alone. If you are going to investigate the beaver dam, watch your step! (The bears are not careful where they dump!)

Being unable to comply with your dam request, and being unable to contact you on your dam answering machine, I am sending this response to your dam office.

Sincerely,

Stephen L.Tvedten

The Gift of The Verona Treaty

Extract from the 1916 Congressional Record Senate

 

Senator Owen: I wish to put in the Record the secret treaty of Verona of November 22, 1822, showing what this ancient conflict is between the rule of the few and the rule of the many. I wish to call the attention of the Senate to this treaty because it is the threat of this treaty which was the basis of the Monroe doctrine. It throws a powerful white light upon the conflict between monarchical government and government by the people. The Holy Alliance under the influence of Metternich, the Premier of Austria, in 1822, issued this remarkable secret document:

 

SECRET TREATY OF VERONA

AMERICAN DIPLOMATIC CODE, 1778-1884, vol. 2; Elliott, p. 179.

The undersigned, specially authorized to make some additions to the treaty of the Holy Alliance, after having exchanged their respective credentials, have agreed as follows:

ARTICLE 1. The high contracting powers, being convinced that the system of representative government is equally as incompatible with the monarchical principles as the maxim of the sovereignty of the people with the divine right, engage mutually, in the most solemn manner, to use all that their efforts to put an end to the system of representative governments, in whatever county it may exist in Europe, and to prevent it being introduced in those countries where it is not yet known.

ARTICLE 2. As it can not be doubted that the liberty of the press is the most powerful means used by the pretended supporters of the rights of nations to the detriment of those of princes, the high contracting parties promise reciprocally to adopt all proper measures to suppress it, not only in their own States but also in the rest of Europe.

ARTICLE 3. Convinced that the principles of religion contribute most powerfully to keep nations in the state of passive obedience which they owe to their princes, the high contracting parties declare it to be their intention to sustain in their respective States those measures which clergy may adopt, with the aim of ameliorating their own interests, intimately connected with the preservation of the authority of the princes and the contracting powers join in offering their thanks to the Pope for what he has already done for them, and solicit his constant cooperation in their views of submitting the nations.

ARTICLE 4. The situation of Spain and Portugal unite unhappily all the circumstances to which this treaty has particular reference. The contracting parties, in confiding to France the care of putting an end to them, engaged to assist her in the matter which may the least compromit (sic) them with their own people and the people of France by means of a subsidy on the part of the two empires of 20,000,000 of francs every year from the date of the signature of this treaty to the end of the war.

ARTICLE 5. In order to establish in the Peninsula in the order of things which existed before the revolution of Cadiz, and to insure the entire execution of the articles of the present treaty, the high contracting parties give to each other the reciprocal assurance that as long as their views are not fulfilled, rejecting all other ideas of utility or other measure to be taken, they will address themselves with the shortest possible delay to all the authorities existing in their States and to all their agents in foreign countries, with the view to establish connections tending toward the accomplishment of the objects proposed by this treaty.

ARTICLE 6. This treaty shall be renewed with such changes as new circumstances may give occasion for, either at a new congress or at the court of one of the contracting parties, as soon as the war with Spain shall be terminated.

ARTICLE 7. The present treaty shall be ratified and the ratifications exchanged at Paris within the space of six months.

Made at Verona the 22nd November, 1822.
for Austria: METTERNICH
for France: CHATEAUBRIAND
for Prussia: BERNSTET
for Russia: NESSELRODE

 

I ask to have printed in the CONGRESSIONAL RECORD this secret treaty, because I think it ought to be called now to the attention of the people of the United States and of the world. This evidence of the conflict between the rule of the few verses popular government should be emphasized on the minds of the people of the United States, that the conflict now waging throughout the world may be more clearly understood, for after all said the great pending war springs from the weakness and frailty of government by the few, where human error is far more probable than the error of the many where aggressive war is only permitted upon the authorizing vote of those whose lives are jeopardized in the trenches of modern war.

Mr. SHAFROTH, Mr. President, I should like to have the senator state whether in that treaty there was not a coalition formed between the powerful countries of Europe to re-establish the sovereignty of Spain in the Republics of South and Central America?

Senator Owen: “I was just going to comment upon that, and I am going to take but a few moments to do so because I realize the pressure of other matters. This Holy Alliance, having put a Bourdon prince upon the throne of France by force, then used France to suppress the condition of Spain, immediately afterwards, and by this very treaty gave her a subsidy of 20,000,000 francs annually to enable her to wage war upon the people of Spain and prevent their exercise of any measure of the right of self-government.

The Holy Alliance immediately did not same thing in Italy, by sending Austrian troops to Italy, where the people there attempted to exercise a like measure of liberal constitutional self-government; and it was not until the printing press, which the Holy Alliance so stoutly opposed, taught the people of Europe the value of liberty that finally one country after another seized a greater and greater right of self-government, until now it may be fairly said that nearly all the nations of Europe have a very large measure of self-government. However, I wish to call the attention of the Senate to this important history in the growth of constitutional popular self-government.

The Holy Alliance made its powers felt by the wholesale drastic suppression of the press in Europe, by universal censorship, by killing free speech and all ideas of popular rights, and by the complete suppression of popular government.”

“The Holy Alliance having destroyed popular government in Spain, and Italy, had well-laid plans also to destroy popular government in the American Colonies which had revolted from Spain and Portugal in Central and South America under the influence of the successful example of the United States.”

“It was because of this conspiracy against the American Republics by the European monarchies that the great English statesman, Canning, called the attention of our government to it, and our statesmen then, including Thomas Jefferson, who was still living at that time, took an active part to bring about the declaration by President Monroe in his next annual message to the Congress of the United States that the United States would regard it as an act of hostility to the government of the United States and an unfriendly act, if this coalition, or if any power of Europe ever undertook to establish upon the American continent any control of any American republic, or to acquire any territorial rights.”

“This is the so-called Monroe Doctrine. The threat under the secret treaty of Verona to suppress popular government in the American republics is the basis of the Monroe Doctrine. This secret treaty sets fourth clearly the conflict between monarchial government and popular government, and the government of the few as against the government on the many. It is a part, in reality, of developing popular sovereignty when we demand for women equal rights to life, to liberty, to the possession of property, to an equal voice in the making of the laws and the administration of the laws. This demand on the part of the women is made by men, and it ought to be made by men as well as by thinking, progressive women, as it will promote human liberty and human happiness. I sympathize with it, and I hope that all parties will in the national conventions give their approval to this larger measure of liberty to the better half of the human race”.

(Senator Owen, Congressional Record 1916)

White Male Gun Nuts Are Terrorists

I constantly hear each “side” of the political spectrum accusing the other “side” of speaking inflammatory language that only serves to perpetuate the anger and hatred that so severely divides this country.

In the following case, a democratic political candidate in Tennessee claims to be a “pro-gun” candidate. According to the Guns America website, the candidate and the party that is promoting his election were quoted as saying that the biggest terrorist organization in America is “White Male Gun Nuts.”

Nice! Real nice. And all this time I thought the biggest threat to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness was totalitarian fascists.<<<Read More>>>

Return to a “Savage” State

The below article has been sent for publication in the local newspaper, The Bethel Citizen.

James Beers, a former U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employee who spent considerable time in Washington, D.C., who became a whistleblower discovering as much as $60 million was stolen from Pittman-Robertson Federal Excise taxes to be used for reintroducing wolves to the Northern Rockies and other illegal activities, recently said that if we are not willing to put a stop to the current “Ecological Theory” that places man as equal to or lesser than that of plants and animals and “spiritual rewilding” our forests and plains, this lack of action will “…return all of us eventually into a “savage state.”

The definition of “civilize” is “to bring out of a savage state.” As our civilization advanced from what some have perceived as uncontrolled slaughter of many of our wild animals and destruction of the habitat that confronted the settlers, through responsible wildlife management which led to developing an understanding of the cooperation of both consumption and conservation, establishing the North American Model of Wildlife Management, we are now moving in a direction that is calling for a hands-off approach to plant and animal management; establishing wilderness and predator protection based somewhat on the belief that Nature produces a preferred outcome.

If the land was in a “natural” state when we found it, i.e. “savage state,” working to restore it to what it once was, or what we think it once was, surely must be a return to an uncivilized, savage state.

We have and are being misled that leaving things up to Nature, will provide for a stabilization of animal and plant existence, i.e. that Nature achieves a “balance” where everything is Nirvana. My very good friend, Dr. Valerius Giest, a professor emeritus at the University of Calgary, says that the Utopian belief in nature, free from the hands of man, achieving balance is “intellectual rubbish.” Life consists of constant negative and positive feedback loops where everything is in constant change.

Leaving it to Nature will yield what Nature has to offer. Reality shows us that Nature’s results are not what most of us prefer. We prefer control and manipulation to achieve healthy plants and wildlife as best possible, while at the same time continuing to provide an opportunity for that long-held, civilized existence of regulated hunting, trapping, and fishing.

If we prefer a healthy existence for our wildlife, someone has to manage and control it. Nature will not, contrary to what some believe, give us what we want in this civilized society. Taking from the resource in a responsible, scientific approach is a cooperation that undertakes the task of managing wildlife for a healthy bounty and providing opportunities for those who wish to take sustenance from that resource. It’s a win-win.

It seems with each passing year, the grumbles and groans get louder and louder of the need to end hunting, fishing, and trapping. As it currently stands, we exist in a back scratching situation where licensed hunters, fishers, and trappers pay the costs of wildlife management in return for an opportunity to reap the rewards of taking from the resource. To deny that privilege, thinking wildlife will manage itself is wrong thinking. To steal it away with a belief that wildlife will control itself is uncivilized, returning us eventually to the previous savage state.

The next time you see a hunter, trapper, or fisherman, thank them for providing the means of responsible conservation so that all of us can enjoy a healthy wildlife.

Frog Jumping Over and Around the Endangered Species Act

A sensible person – there are so few left in this world – can see that the Endangered Species Act of 1973 is ancient, outdated, ineffective, and draconian – if you are of the rare breed of man who thinks man’s existence is at least a tick above that of an animal.

But it matters not how many people scream and yell and how often that something needs to be done about the Endangered Species Act (ESA), nothing ever gets done, except perhaps a bit of window dressing as the Trump Administration has been trying to do; also often referred to as smoke and mirrors.

Nothing will change with the ESA because man’s social and cultural demise in this country is so deeply embedded that animals, wild or domestic, deserve much more protection than the existence and well-being of man. This might be shown to us in a Patriot Post opinion piece written by Terence Jeffrey.

He suggests that San Francisco, California should consider declaring portions of the downtown as critical habitat for the grizzly bear. Why?

Because the mindset of the perverted culture of the U.S. citizen is that of favoritism to the animal and disdain for the people. According to some man’s history lesson, grizzly bears once “lived almost everywhere in California.” With today’s thinking, that is reason enough to force all people to learn to “coexist” with grizzly bears and because they once “lived almost everywhere” they should live there once again regardless of the practicality or even that habitat any longer exists to support such a creature. This is one of the stupid results of a bastardized, outdated, and a fascist/totalitarian administration of a law designed specifically for that purpose (but don’t go look).

In this same opinion piece, we read of what is taking place in Louisiana, where the U.S. Supreme Court might soon decide whether the ESA can rule over the welfare of mankind for the purposes of attempting to protect and restore a species that is biologically impossible to exist in habitat that no longer is supportive of the species the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) intends to protect.

The USFWS declared nearly 5,000 acres as critical habitat for the dusky gopher frog, even though those acres will no longer support the existence of the frog.

It seems Weyerhaeuser owns some of that land yanked away from them by the ESA’s designation of “critical habitat.” Weyerhaeuser has had to stop their logging operations because of the designation, which shows us how the ESA is used in the destruction of private enterprise, particularly logging and ranching. Weyerhaeuser has sued the USFWS.

In addition to Weyerhaeuser’s logging operations, some of this same land is being earmarked for development of housing to get people out of the path of destructive hurricanes when they blow ashore. Should any animal take precedence over men? Should any animal be given ESA protection and critical habitat designation when such habitat will never support the appointed species? And even if the habitat is supportive, at what lengths will the government go to halt the existence and pursuit of happiness of private citizens?

That’s perhaps what the Supreme Court will decide. In arguments concerning the frog, it has been brought out that the elements needed in a habitat to support the frog no longer exist. Why then is the USFWS extending their fascist reach to shut down Weyerhaeuser and stop the protection of the human species?

Maybe, there is a light of some interest in this matter when the U.S. Supreme Court heard this case (no decision has been rendered yet). According to Jeffrey, Justice Roberts was quoted as saying, “…if you have ephemeral ponds in Alaska, you could build a giant greenhouse and plant the longleaf pines and the frog could live there.”

The system we are forced to operate in is a rigged system. All facets of the U.S. Government operate in unison with this rigged system – that’s one reason it is rigged. If it is decided that the real purpose of the ESA is to be used to shut down private enterprise and take over land regardless of its purposes for a man, then that’s the way it shall be. From time to time, the government positions their smoke and mirrors in attempts to mislead the insane public into thinking they really give a shit. This could be one of those cases, but…

The government doesn’t care. I look for a ruling from the SCOTUS that their hands are tied because the ESA gives the Federal Government the authority to administer the Act and that the Service is granted their deference based on “Best Available Science.”

Business as usual.

Down For a Day

The night before last, a weather front blew through here with a bit of rain. It was followed by strong winds. Consequently, about 2:30 a.m. we lost our power and didn’t get it restored until around 6 p.m. last evening. As a result, I had no computer and Internet access.

Artificial Intelligence

Lazy-ass Americans are falling in love with “Artificial” Intelligence. It’s because they don’t want to be bothered by thinking. Americans don’t care that Facebook squandered all your private information. Americans don’t care that Google intends (they already do dummy) “censor” your search. Americans don’t care that they are being spied on every day – what the do, where they go, who they see.

And now begins a love affair with Artificial Intelligence. Think it’s grand?

ARTIFICIAL:

1. made or produced by human beings rather than occurring naturally, typically as a copy of something natural.
2. (of a person or a person’s behavior) insincere or affected.
synonyms: insincere, feigned, false, unnatural, contrived, put-on, exaggerated, forced, labored, strained, hollow;
And in case you don’t understand all this, Artificial Intelligence is MADE UP SHIT!!!!
But YOU don’t care.

What’s the Matter with Rural America?

*Editor’s Note* – In the Wall Street Journal article linked to in Jim Beers piece, reference is made to the possibility that there are actually efforts underway by wealthy businessmen to open factories in traditionally “Red” states in order to deliberately change the demographics and political posturing within those states rendering them “Blue.” While this specific attempt at changing political control and power may be a new and/or different concept, the same end game has been tried often.

We all know about the blatant attempt by political hacks to change the boundaries of voting precincts in order to alter voting results. We also hear the whining about the Electoral College when one side loses an election even though they may have won the popular vote.

It appears that now, another round of “it ain’t fair” is cropping up that every state, regardless of population, gets two seats in the Senate. There are always cries to change the rules when they were not advantageous to cause a victory within the false paradigm of political decisionmaking.

When Barrack Obama was running for president, while nobody was interested in vetting the man and his many faces, I was able in my work to find a similar attempt he made at changing the Court system by stuffing articles in law school Law Reviews. It was believed this effort would influence judges, struggling to find court case precedence and forced to resort to published law review articles in rendering decisions.

It might be worth spending some time looking at all this stuff as another means of understanding the corrupt and rigged government system we are forced to be slaves to.

By James Beers:

The Left’s latest item on their growing list of things (the Supreme Court, ICE, Innocent until proven guilty, gun rights, white males, law enforcement, et al) to either eliminate or neuter is the US Senate per Mr. Willick’s shrewd description.

His historic citation of the middle 19th century encouraging modern opponents of the existence of the US Senate into moving to spots like North Dakota and other such sparsely-settled and so-called over-represented rural enclaves to make them vote as the Left dictates, while having a smidgeon of sense, should cause all Rural Americans to take both note and action.

One need looks no further than the current rural rapine effects of those two modern-day sacred Acts of the urban environmental religion; the Endangered Species Act and the Wilderness Act.  Note the grizzly bears attacking and killing humans and livestock; note the wolves decimating the big game and domestic dog populations; note the “catastrophic” fires that have become routine and destructive beyond belief where logging, grazing and resource management are no more; note the loss of jobs, local taxes, families and communities where residents no more control their surroundings than Poles under German or Soviet occupiers.

These outrages were all perpetrated by a federal government catering to urban fantasies constrained by only one thing, a US Senate where the state balance of 2 per state and special powers like ratifying appointees and Treaties occasionally provided a modest protection to Rural Americans.  Think of what it will be like when dissembled by the Left – and vote.

RMEF Honored for Public Access and Habitat Stewardship

Press Release from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation received the Public Lands Foundation’s (PLF) 2018 Landscape Stewardship Award at a ceremony here Tuesday for its leadership in conserving wildlife habitat and improving access on public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

“The RMEF has been a long-time leader in working with the BLM, state and federal agencies, private landowners and other partners to conserve wildlife and enhance access to public lands for hunters, anglers and other outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy,” said Ed Shepard, PLF president. “RMEF’s unique niche as a grassroots, member-driven organization has made a measureable impact as a passionate and effective advocate, working from the ground up to champion access and habitat improvement projects across the country.”

The Montana/Dakotas BLM nominated RMEF for the prestigious award and highlighted RMEF’s successful Cow Island Trail acquisition in north-central Montana immediately prior to the 2015 hunting season. The 93-acre project improved access to approximately 6,000 acres of public land in the scenic Upper Missouri Breaks that were extremely difficult to reach.

“We have worked side-by-side with our BLM partners for more than 34 years and appreciate receiving this honor and recognition,” said Kyle Weaver, RMEF president and CEO. “It is a reflection of our commitment to our mission and especially is an indicator of the support we receive from our volunteers, members and other conservation partners who support us in all that we do together.”

Over the past 20 years in the Montana/Dakotas region alone, RMEF spearheaded five lands projects conveying 14,015 acres to BLM, opening or improving access to more than 56,000 acres of public lands.

“The Elk Foundation is leaving an indelible mark on the ability of current and future generations to use and enjoy our nation’s public lands,” said Jon Raby, BLM Montana State Director. “RMEF’s ability to work closely with willing landowners to develop strategic access improvement projects is a tremendous asset for BLM and the public.”

The most recent RMEF-BLM Montana effort is the Little Sheep Creek access project in southwest Montana that, when completed, will permanently protect nearly 1,000 acres of wildlife habitat and improve access to 2,600 acres of adjacent public lands.

RMEF and BLM Montana have partnered on more than 60 habitat stewardship projects that directly benefited more than 80,000 acres of habitat for elk and a diverse array of other species. Nationally, the BLM and RMEF have completed more than 1,082 projects with a joint conservation portfolio valued in excess of $143 million dollars.
