A Book to Read; A Book to Give

I just finished reading Wolf: What’s to Misunderstand?. It is a book by Thomas K. Remington published in 2014.

The book covers the history of wolves. It describes ancient references to wolves in European history and the early history of wolves as America was being settled by European farmers, ranchers and other rural settlers.

It is mainly about the recent “restoration” and “re-introduction” of wolves in the Lower 48 states. The politics and bureaucratic “shenanigans” (a politically correct synonym for lies, ignorance and self-serving hidden agendas) of the past 40 years are covered in a way particularly geared for the general public, those casually interested in the subject, and those wanting to expand their understanding of how we got to where we are today in order to figure out what must be done if rural American communities are to be safe, productive and vibrant nurseries for families and communities that have been the backbone of the Nation for 240 years.

Tom is, like the Founding Fathers envisioned running the country, a citizen with a sharp mind, a deep interest in the wolf travesty, and the gumption to put together a book for others to understand what so many strive to keep “un-understandable”. His observations and insights are geared to others like himself, that is the American citizenry. They are refreshing for me and should prove useful to many others.

I believe it is a book worth reading and certainly a book worth giving to others in our families, workplace, church and neighborhoods.

The book is available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon, paperback of Barnes and Noble, paperback and signed copies on his website at tomremington.com (Link with book cover in right column, under “Tom’s Library.)”

NOTE: This is an honest recommendation for which I am not compensated nor awarded any tax break by faceless bureaucrats or omnipresent politicians. You can take that to the bank.

Bank CEO Fears for Life Having Worked With CIA

BALTIMORE— Edwin “Ed” Hale Sr., a retired bank executive known locally for his sharp-elbowed approach to business, installed video surveillance on his 186-acre farm and still sleeps with a sawed-off shotgun by his bed.

His friends, former employees and even his own daughters were shocked to learn in his recently published biography that he had ample reason to do so: The former chief executive and chairman of Bank of Baltimore says he worked covertly for the Central Intelligence Agency for almost a decade in the 1990s and early 2000s.<<<Read More>>>

Gorby Falling Down on the Job?

Earlier I posted some history from a book called “Away From it All” by Dorothy Boone Kidney. In that post it was about attacks on humans by bears and the history of the Lock Dam on Chamberlain Lake in the Allagash of Northern Maine.

The same friend who sent that information also sent me a short quip about gorbys, the Canada jay, and how one of the jay’s names is “moose bird” because the moose allows the gorby to land and ride on him or her and feed on ticks. We have recently learned that a combination of a harsh winter and an overabundance of winter ticks, a gorby’s delicacy, killed a lot of moose. Are there just too many moose with ticks that the gorby can’t keep up? Or not enough gorbys?

Book: “Away From it All”…..and into the Middle of Bear Attacks

In a continued effort to dispel the false security perpetuated by wild animal predator lovers that black bears “rarely” bother or attack humans, I’ve put together some bits of history that relates black bear events of attacks on humans, along with some history of northern Maine, the building of dams for the logging industry and the use of water power to get lumber to the mills many, many miles away.

The following information was sent to me by a close friend. It comes from a book title, “Away From it All” (information about the book included). Also, at the end of the excerpts from “Away From it All” is a link to a Bangor Daily News article called, “The Dam that Pine Built.”

Wolf: What’s to Understand?

I am here to announce that I am working diligently on another new book. I wish I could give some kind of time line as to when it will be completed but I just am not able to just yet. I will keep readers abreast of the status.

I am presently and have been for some time, deeply embroiled in research and writing. Yesterday, as only a writer can appreciate, I spent 4 hours in order to write 2 pages.

Wolf: What’s to Understand?, examines topics such as global wolf history, the Endangered Species Act, events leading up to wolf reintroduction into the Greater Yellowstone Area and what has transpired since wolf reintroduction. I’ll also examine wolf diseases and what our future might look like with wolves on the landscape.

This may all sound like more of the same old, same old. But that will not be the case. This book will prove to be different than just about all other wolf books. I take all of the topics listed above and reveal how the bastardization of best available science, has, not only destroyed a vital and extremely necessary scientific industry, but has turned nearly every aspect of wildlife management into a political army tank plowing over individual rights and manipulating public law in ways never intended placing humans below the interest of animals.

Best available science has become best available fraud. Environmentalists, a combination of programmed facilitators and willing serfs, are crying for a “new understanding of wolves” and that there must be a “paradigm shift” in how wolves are discussed and their purpose in our society. This antithesis to science really began when environmentalists exclaimed, “Wolves are just misunderstood.”

Secretary of State John Kerry, through his role as a member and founder of the Aspen Institute, says that it is the function of the Institute to “create new knowledge.” So what exactly is new knowledge and why is it necessary to create it? Knowledge is to discover.

Best Available Science became the foundation of the Endangered Species Act. Unfortunately that concept fails when honest science is extracted from the process and replaced with “new knowledge,” a “new understanding” and a “paradigm shift.”

Wolf: What’s to Understand?, doesn’t set out to prove scientific theories as they pertain to wolves. Instead, the book will expose the fraud and politics, which has led to a complete distrust of a government system that makes and breaks all the rules.
