Trump Lies and Utter Climate Change Nonsense: The World is Insane and You Are Being Duped

Press Release from Sen. Maria Cantwell, ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources:

Cantwell To Trump: Protect Our Planet With The Same Zeal You Protect Your Golf Courses

Trump Cited ‘Global Warming And Its Effects’ in Application To Build a Sea Wall Around His Irish Golf Course

Washington, D.C. – Today, Ranking Member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) wrote to President Trump about his differing approach to combating climate change as a businessman compared to his positions and actions as a politician.

“Taking measures to protect your own assets from climate change while simultaneously sabotaging our nation’s efforts to do the same is duplicitous and unacceptable,” Senator Cantwell writes. “Today I am asking Donald Trump, the President, to acknowledge what Donald Trump, the businessman–and 97% of the world’s scientists–already know: climate change is real and we must do something about it. If you do that, I am confident we can work together to protect the American people and economy from the fallout associated with climate change with the same zeal you’ve shown for protecting your golf courses.”

According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), climate change has already resulted in rising sea levels and severe weather events that are occurring more frequently and with greater intensity. They advise that the U.S. needs a national strategy to fight climate change, maximize investments, achieve efficiencies, and better position the government for success. However, Trump’s funding priorities in the FY 2018 budget proposal and changes to federal programs and policies from executive actions will decrease the federal government’s ability to address climate risks and increase taxpayer fiscal exposure.

See the full GAO report comparing Trump’s America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again and the March 28, 2017 Executive Order on Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth with GAO’s Limiting The Federal Government’s Fiscal Exposure by Better Managing Climate Change Risks HERE.

“As thousands gather in Washington, D.C., this weekend to express the need to take decisive action to address climate change, I write out of profound concern regarding your recent Executive Orders and directives that recklessly propose to rescind and eliminate policies designed to address the long-term economic costs of carbon pollution,” Senator Cantwell continued.

“This appears to be a fact you have acknowledged, when it comes to protecting your own assets. According to reports, you applied to build a 200,000-ton rock wall to protect one of your golf courses in Europe from, as the application states, “an increase in sea level rise as a result of global warming.”

The full text of the letter can be read below and found here.

Dear Mr. President:

As thousands gather in Washington, D.C., this weekend to express the need to take decisive action to address climate change, I write out of profound concern regarding your recent Executive Orders and directives that recklessly propose to rescind and eliminate policies designed to address the long-term economic costs of carbon pollution. You’ve recognized these costs when it comes to your own business interests; but these same impacts are threatening the American economy.

Data prepared by the Rhodium Group and the World Resources Institute suggest that the policies announced during your first 100 days in office will, by 2025, increase annual U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases by 900 megatons – more than Germany’s total emissions. Your actions will raise annual global emissions by 2%, causing even greater damage.

I was deeply dismayed to learn earlier this spring that, when pressed about the economic impacts of sea level rise and extreme weather, senior White House officials responsible for briefing the contents of your March 28 Executive Order on climate change reflected ignorance of their associated costs.

I was also shocked to hear OMB Director Mulvaney tell a group of reporters that government programs designed to prevent and minimize the impact of climate change are “a waste of [taxpayer] money.”

According to the U.S. Global Change Research Program’s National Climate Assessment, ignoring the threat of climate change will cost U.S. taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars. This is because of the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, which will grow more costly over time.

This appears to be a fact you have acknowledged, when it comes to protecting your own assets. According to reports, you applied to build a 200,000-ton rock wall to protect one of your golf courses in Europe from, as the application states, “an increase in sea level rise as a result of global warming.”

Out of similar concerns, Senator Collins and I have asked the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to evaluate what it will cost the Federal government to respond to the damage caused by climate change. That analysis is due to be completed this summer, and I strongly suggest you pay attention to its conclusions. The attached analyses compiled by GAO paint a very stark picture.

For example, without mitigation, climate change is expected to cause $5 trillion in damage to coastal properties in the next 75 years. Coastal damage will be one of the largest drivers in federal climate change-related spending—totaling a projected $78 billion by late century just in coastal disaster relief. As you know well, Mar-a-Lago is located on a barrier island off the Florida coast. These are the kinds of locations particularly vulnerable to catastrophic weather events.

But in addition, flood insurance costs are expected to rise. And as the GAO has noted, “the federal government owns and manages facilities and land vulnerable to climate change–DOD alone estimates its property replacement value is close to $850 billion.” Moreover, it’s estimated policies that further delay needed reductions in greenhouse gas emissions will cost our economy $150 billion a year.

Mr. President, the economic impacts of rising sea level and extreme weather are precisely the kind of phenomena that require us to take collective action to address climate change. Taking measures to protect your own assets from climate change while simultaneously sabotaging our nation’s efforts to do the same is duplicitous and unacceptable.

Today I am asking Donald Trump, the President, to acknowledge what Donald Trump, the businessman–and 97% of the world’s scientists–already know: climate change is real and we must do something about it. If you do that, I am confident we can work together to protect the American people and economy from the fallout associated with climate change with the same zeal you’ve shown for protecting your golf courses.

I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Maria Cantwell
United States Senator

Maine Cuts Moose Hunting Permits by “Just” 3%

Opportunity! That’s the adjunct word that is readily used today in describing hunting, fishing, and trapping. Once everyone is brainwashed into accepting the word “opportunity” as a privilege granted by the state, what else is left?

Why should I, or anyone, get riled up over a measly little 3% reduction in “opportunity” to hunt moose? Maybe I shouldn’t but that’s not the whole and truthful story in the matter.

According to what the Portland Press Herald just reported,  in 2013 the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) issued 4,085 moose hunting permits. Those permits are handed out through a lottery process. Just announced by MDIFW is that this year’s permit allocation will stand at just 2,080. However, let’s make sure that Maine sportsmen understand that there is still “opportunity.” We can’t fault MDIFW’s management plans and execution of those plans because, well, we still have “opportunity.” That’s how many sportsmen see things. As I said, “opportunity” is the word.

If MDIFW keeps cutting permits, the moose numbers may recover to where 4,000 or more permits are allotted. By then the tick problem will resurface and MDIFW can find some Federal funds and/or grant money and conduct another study on the affects of winter ticks on moose, all the while never bothering to study the tick itself. It’s easier just to take what the environmentalists have perpetuated that global warming causes ticks. Science and common sense are no longer a part of the equations. Always be ruled by the demands of the social groups.

There is, however, hope…well, not really. I just like to say that, I suppose in the same fashion that fish and game departments love to promote “opportunity.”

Okay! So, we are supposed to cut the managers some slack because they are still in the middle of a moose study. Probably ten years from now, we will still be saying Maine is in the middle of a moose study. Or maybe the sharing of the results and data of this moose study will happen as efficiently as when we get harvest reports for deer, bear and moose…never? We had to find out through the grapevine that MDIFW was conducting a deer study with the major land owners of northern Maine. Evidently this study is about how protecting deer yards is having no effect on the deer. Let’s go discuss it in the coffee shop. That has always worked.

We know winter ticks are being blamed for fewer moose which results in fewer hunting permits (opportunist). I don’t have a problem with that….well, mostly not. Of course increased winter ticks has always been blamed on global warming, even though Maine’s head moose biologist says, “With moose the hypothesis that is being talked about has to do with climate, but it’s complicated. It seems spring and fall affect the winter ticks, that and high moose densities.”

Notice he did call it a hypothesis. It appears this hypothesis, like all other hypotheses, still provides the escape to blame all things on climate change. Winter ticks have been around the world since the beginning of time. Who did the first moose biologists blame the ticks on?

I refuse to even hint that Kantar is suggesting anything will ever be done about “high moose densities” unless it is done by Nature the way it has in the past 3 years. There are too many moose, causing too many ticks and those ticks are killing off the moose. The reports are that this year’s winter tick mortality has been considerably less than the previous 3. What has happened to the moose population during this time? Who knows. They won’t tell us. Is a reduction in moose population directly proportional to the reduction in ticks. Nah, it’s the drought and the cold winter. Don’t you know?

Aside from all this, the state wouldn’t dream of reducing moose populations to mitigate ticks and other diseases, including public safety and private property issues, because they fear the lobby of the environmentalists and those looking to make a buck gawking at moose. I don’t blame those looking to make a buck…but at what expense.

But, never fear. Maine sportsmen will always have their “opportunities.” Opportunities may not exist for all or even most. If you’ve got the money, you can increase your chances, even while the chances continue to dwindle. If there remain but one lone moose permit, deer permit, bear permit, etc. Mainers couldn’t complain because MDIFW has protected their opportunities.

If LD 11, a constitutional amendment said to protect hunting, fishing and trapping in Maine, were to pass, how easy it will become to protect opportunity.

Fabulous!

The Real Global Warming

I often write about the lies and fallacies of “global warming,” or as words are always manipulated to dishonestly title the same corrupt lies, “climate change.” In this context, all of this is utter nonsense. It’s a political tool used for nefarious reasons, such as population manipulation and control, death and destruction, bilking money from taxpayers and, the destruction of what few rights we have left.

Unless you’ve had your head buried in the sand, and/or you are so deeply smitten with blindly following and believing only those things governments and Media say, you should understand that this same corrupt government has the technology to alter the weather, which, in turn could, over time, alter the climate. Your government has told you they can and will do this. Were you listening?

The government/military has the technology to control and change the weather. The government/military has the technology to cause “earthquakes,” severe storms, droughts and floods. Certainly it makes the lying about “climate change” easier, when government can effectively create what some might call “miracles” in order to convince the mass servitude that we are all going to die because of climate change.

If you’ve ever taken the time to look up at our skies, one can see that the government/military is saturating our atmosphere 365/24/7, with chemical aerosols. Willful blindness and ignorance causes the mass servitude to scoff at the notion that the government is controlling the weather while at the same time poisoning us with their toxic chemicals. We have become comfortable in the belief this is being done for our good and our protection; perhaps even national security, that one aspect of fear-mongering that causes us to relinquish all our rights believing it is making us safe.

If one would only take 3 minutes out of their technozombie existence to refresh themselves with a basic principle of what constitutes a condensation trail from a jet-propelled engine on a plane, they might wonder how a “condensation” trail from a high-flying jet plane can last for at least 12 hours.

But don’t go look!

Naturally, there is no such things a global warming, caused by the mere existence of mortal man, i.e. “carbon footprint.” Corruption, theft, lying, cheating, stealing can and does result in changes to our weather and other catastrophes we are quick to dispel as being the fault of our existence on this earth. “The Earth has a temperature.”

But all of this is nothing compared to the “global warming” that lies ahead. In the Scriptures, Revelation 16: 8 and 9, we read:

“8And the fourth Angel poured out his vial on the sun, and it was given to him to torment men with heat of fire,

And men boiled in great heat, and blasphemed the Name of God, which hath power over these plagues, and they repented not to give him glory.” (emboldening added)

Men believe themselves to be powerful, yes, even for some, in their tiny minds, they are “like gods.” However, their power, as frightful and destructive as it can be, is nothing compared to that which the Creator can and will do – perhaps mostly targeting the wicked rulers, those Powers and Principalities, who used their technology to cause the suffering of man and the destruction of his property.

But, don’t go look!

Just Imagine That God Knew What He Was Doing

Cantwell Statement On Trump Administration Climate Executive Order

Washington, D.C. – Today, Ranking Member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) made the following statement on the Trump Administration’s executive order:

“President Trump’s executive order today marks an irresponsible retreat from making polluters pay, promoting energy efficiency, growing our clean energy economy, addressing the threat of climate change and ensuring taxpayers get a fair return for the minerals they own,” Senator Cantwell said. “The Trump Administration is sabotaging the United States’ chances of becoming the world’s clean energy superpower in order to line the pockets of polluters. I will oppose this wrong-headed order with every tool at my disposal.”

<<<See Trump’s Executive Order>>>

Presidential Executive Order on Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth

*Editor’s Note* – It is important to understand that what this Executive Order appears to be doing and what, in reality, it is doing is most definitely two different things. It appears as though President Trump’s action to rescind practically all of President Obama’s executive orders and orders of memorandum on limiting certain power and energy producing establishments and this country’s policy on Global Warming, is going to turn the clock back several decades to limit the draconian laws used against industry growth and the environment, but is that what he’s doing? Or is he pretending to be doing these things, when in reality, nothing will change?

While the repealing of the Obama executive orders are real, everything else is a word game, crafted to be misleading and non specific. The action from this moment forward is nothing more than a continuation of bureaucratic paper chasing, i.e. ordering agency heads to “review” current orders and “suggest” ways to improve and lessen the encumbrances on industry, present ideas and suggestions to the Office of Management and Budget, write up draft plans based on fake “peer-reviewed best available lies science”, present them for public scrutiny, rewrite final plans, present them to the public, etc. In short, we have no idea what, if anything will change. 

What has changed, immediately upon the signing of the EO by President Trump, is that a percent of the country further hates Trump, willing to kill him and all who follow his religion, and some are going out of their already insane minds believing the earth is going to be destroyed. While on the other side of the false paradigm, others think “America is Great Again,” and we are getting back to a more sensible approach to the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, under a constitution few understand the meaning and interpretation of.

Consider, if you can, that the powers that actually rule, not just the United States, but the entire world, are far bigger than Donald Trump, the United States Congress and/or their collective. We know, or should know, that when it comes to the Environment and in particular Global Warming/Climate Change, those powers are in full control of that. It has become a powerful weapon against humanity. If you can grasp this concept, then understand that unless President Donald Trump is doing exactly as he is being told to do, he is a dead man walking. None of the Powers and Principalities that control this world would stand by and let any president actually destroy and disrupt all the the work already accomplished with Climate Change and Environmentalism.

However, what they will do, and perhaps are, is take false actions intended to incite people to violence – violence of which is the resulting factor caused by years of brainwashing and mind manipulation and control.

EXECUTIVE ORDER

PROMOTING ENERGY INDEPENDENCE AND ECONOMIC GROWTH

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Policy.  (a)  It is in the national interest to promote clean and safe development of our Nation’s vast energy resources, while at the same time avoiding regulatory burdens that unnecessarily encumber energy production, constrain economic growth, and prevent job creation.  Moreover, the prudent development of these natural resources is essential to ensuring the Nation’s geopolitical security.

(b)  It is further in the national interest to ensure that the Nation’s electricity is affordable, reliable, safe, secure, and clean, and that it can be produced from coal, natural gas, nuclear material, flowing water, and other domestic sources, including renewable sources.

(c)  Accordingly, it is the policy of the United States that executive departments and agencies (agencies) immediately review existing regulations that potentially burden the development or use of domestically produced energy resources and appropriately suspend, revise, or rescind those that unduly burden the development of domestic energy resources beyond the degree necessary to protect the public interest or otherwise comply with the law.

(d)  It further is the policy of the United States that, to the extent permitted by law, all agencies should take appropriate actions to promote clean air and clean water for the American people, while also respecting the proper roles of the Congress and the States concerning these matters in our constitutional republic.

(e)  It is also the policy of the United States that necessary and appropriate environmental regulations comply with the law, are of greater benefit than cost, when permissible, achieve environmental improvements for the American people, and are developed through transparent processes that employ the best available peer-reviewed science and economics.

Sec. 2.  Immediate Review of All Agency Actions that Potentially Burden the Safe, Efficient Development of Domestic Energy Resources.  (a)  The heads of agencies shall review all existing regulations, orders, guidance documents, policies, and any other similar agency actions (collectively, agency actions) that potentially burden the development or use of domestically produced energy resources, with particular attention to oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear energy resources.  Such review shall not include agency actions that are mandated by law, necessary for the public interest, and consistent with the policy set forth in section 1 of this order.

(b)  For purposes of this order, “burden” means to unnecessarily obstruct, delay, curtail, or otherwise impose significant costs on the siting, permitting, production, utilization, transmission, or delivery of energy resources.

(c)  Within 45 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency with agency actions described in subsection (a) of this section shall develop and submit to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB Director) a plan to carry out the review required by subsection (a) of this section.  The plans shall also be sent to the Vice President, the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, and the Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality.  The head of any agency who determines that such agency does not have agency actions described in subsection (a) of this section shall submit to the OMB Director a written statement to that effect and, absent a determination by the OMB Director that such agency does have agency actions described in subsection (a) of this section, shall have no further responsibilities under this section.

(d)  Within 120 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit a draft final report detailing the agency actions described in subsection (a) of this section to the Vice President, the OMB Director, the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, and the Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality.  The report shall include specific recommendations that, to the extent permitted by law, could alleviate or eliminate aspects of agency actions that burden domestic energy production.

(e)  The report shall be finalized within 180 days of the date of this order, unless the OMB Director, in consultation with the other officials who receive the draft final reports, extends that deadline.

(f)  The OMB Director, in consultation with the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, shall be responsible for coordinating the recommended actions included in the agency final reports within the Executive Office of the President.

(g)  With respect to any agency action for which specific recommendations are made in a final report pursuant to subsection (e) of this section, the head of the relevant agency shall, as soon as practicable, suspend, revise, or rescind, or publish for notice and comment proposed rules suspending, revising, or rescinding, those actions, as appropriate and consistent with law.  Agencies shall endeavor to coordinate such regulatory reforms with their activities undertaken in compliance with Executive Order 13771 of January 30, 2017 (Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs).

DONALD J. TRUMP

THE WHITE HOUSE,
March 28, 2017.

Climate Change Narrative of Convenience

There’s money in research. There’s no money in finding cures or answers.

I laughed yesterday listening the fake Speaker of the House talking fake stuff about the Congressional Budget and the fake process taken by the fake Congress to lie, cheat and steal, being careful to appropriate enough money to pay off the lying, cheating and stealing cronies that make sure they keep getting elected. The fake Paul Ryan was asked by a fake reporter if he and Congress were comfortable about cutting the budgets of departments that enable all the freeloaders in this country, including Meals on Wheels and the Institute on Health. Of course the liar, who is fake, never answered the question but what made me laugh was when he began to explain that Congress planned on spending more money to prop up the fake Institute on Health, “because they are getting real close to finding cures for such things as cancer…” Yessiree bub! And for how many decades has the health industry been real close to finding a cure for some fake afflictions in which they created? All they need is just some more money.

This criminal activities abound throughout all of governments, but don’t go look. How dare anybody suggest taking money away from finding cures for problems that government made or allowed to be made?

It may appear that I’m getting off the subject but I’m not. One of the big money makers of the last decade has been the fake “Global Warming” which soon become “Climate Change” because stupid people, along with corrupt, stupid and greedy fake scientists are willing and eager to play the role of useless eaters – so long as they get paid, a pension, and a cellphone.

Wanting to believe in terrible things that man does, drives those who want, so badly, to believe. They strive to be a True Believer. This action, the result of planned mass mind manipulation and propagandizing, rolls out a red carpet for implementation of “Climate Change” as the cause for anything that can become a money-making convenience. Not only does perpetuating the myth of climate change make money but it becomes the ignorant and lazy man’s way of life. So few will go out of their way to honestly dispute the false claims, that those who do are looked upon as being some kind of nut. When the threats to the convenient narrative become great enough, this is when we begin to see and hear the fascists step forward to demand action to censor such talk, a kind of new Sedition Act, if you will. And the True Believers back this action.

Making attempts to expose the fraud become more and more difficult. Quitting would only play into the hands of those who profit from hoaxing Climate Change and so, the handful of us continue in the effort, alone.

Climate Change can and has been an excuse for anything and everything. It’s gotten so bad that in my household, if someone should burn the toast, the car won’t start or somebody’s dog pissed on the shrubs in front of my house, the comment, accompanied but much laughter, immediately becomes, “Damned Global Warming!”

That’s not that far from reality. A real life example of the Climate Change Narrative of Convenience is under full employment when it comes to wildlife management, or perhaps more accurately it should be wildlife mismanagement, a.k.a. Environmentalism.

Moose in the Northeast States are suffering from winter tick infestation. Of course Climate Change is to blame for there being too many ticks. Let’s forget about any scientific proof or understanding about this entire concept of moose ticks and global warming, because we know the fake wildlife scientists have, and consider for a moment that the reason there are so many ticks killing moose, is because of Climate Change’s climate change. The remarkable thing about Climate Change and the narrative of convenience is that it can fit any situation, regardless of facts or the lack thereof. After all, it is convenient.

If a changing climate is so effective that it can magically grow millions of ticks in northern New England, then the same affect must be making serious changes in other things as well. That would only make sense, if you had a brain. I hate to bring this up at a time like this, but science has told us that this winter tick is an extremely viable creature. Doesn’t it then make sense that any kind of climate change would have to be severe enough to cause a change from a population of ticks that was negligible, to a population large enough to kill 70% of calf moose and thousands of other adult moose?

Let’s forget that during this same time frame that the moose population in Maine, as near as can be estimated, went from somewhere around 20,000 animals to as many as 90,000. We must still adhere to the fantasy of Climate Change.

Continuing on with the false Climate Change reasoning, if we have then established a base that Climate Change’s climate change was severe enough to severely influence an extremely viable tick to increase in exponential numbers, then what else has taken place in places like Maine that would tell an inquisitive scientist, that this same climate change is running rampant? Sorry, I think this falls under inconvenience.

Climate Change fascists have convinced the masses that Climate Change is going to turn the “climate” in places like Maine to be similar to that of New Jersey. Is that happening, or beginning to happen? Some think so but where’s the proof? Talk is cheap. Lying and embellishment against truth is the norm.

We are told that moose cannot and will not be able to survive in Maine because of Climate Change and that they will migrate north to Canada…perhaps beyond the Arctic Circle. Are they? They may all be killed by ticks before any migration can take place. We are repeatedly told that the white-tailed deer in Maine is living in the extreme northerly fringe of its natural habitat/climate. Don’t look on a map to discover that New Brunswick, Canada is further north than Maine and they still have deer. Maybe Climate Change’s climate change has effected New Brunswick yet.

If Climate Change is happening enough to grow millions of ticks, surely that Climate Change is causing deer to grow and grow and grow, because Maine’s climate is resembling that of New Jersey. Is this happening? I’d suggest that readers take a look at the available statistic to answer this question, but you won’t bother.

This nonsense could go on, it seems, forever, but nobody cares or will listen. They don’t want to. They don’t know how. There’s money to be made. The Climate Change Narrative of Convenience is at work here. There’s convenience in using weather to convince people the climate is changing. There’s no convenience to point out that if Maine’s climate is warming enough to grow winter ticks, then Maine’s wildlife scientists should disregard any talk of severe winters and get rid of the complicated Winter Severity Index, which is probably just a “convenient” political tool to make more money. If the climate has changed this much, why then does Maine continue to have record-breaking snowfall, record-breaking cold temperatures? There’s convenience to disregard these truths but take to the Media to hype whenever there is some kind of perceived weather anomaly and conveniently blame Climate Change’s climate change.

There is convenience to say that Climate Change grows ticks that kill moose, but there’s no convenience to point out that this same tick is found all over the earth, from the hot dry lands of Texas to the frigid Arctic air of Alaska and the Yukon. Has Climate Change’s climate change had any effect on these ticks in Texas and the Yukon? A climate influence so great that it grows ticks by the millions in Maine must be having some kind of effect on these other places. Ticks must be dying from excessive heat in Texas. Ticks must be growing by the millions in the Yukon.

There is convenience to say that deer can’t survive in Maine because it is at the northern fringe of it’s range. It is inconvenient to point out that if the climate is changing so much as to grow unusual numbers of winter ticks, the climate in Maine must now be able to support more deer, without the need for winter deer yards because the fringe line has moved north.

There’s convenience to point out that Climate Change is causing the polar ice caps to melt causing the sea water levels to rise. It is inconvenient to acknowledge that ice masses are growing and using their same logic of convenience, the sea water levels must then be shrinking.

Is it too late to offer hope that one day people will come to terms with what is truth and what is not? I image it is. We have had all sensible intelligence bred out of us. We are mostly incapable of thought, especially independent thought. The sooner they can get rid of “anarchists” like me, the happier they will be. They have reason to celebrate. More of us are dying everyday. Soon there will be none and they can go about doing whatever it is they are going to do to kill off a few billion of YOU people. I am sorry that there are so many people standing up for and fighting for their own demise.

But, whatever you do,

DON’T GO LOOK!

Climate Change: We’re All Gonna Die! Or Maybe Not

It’s unending all the nonsense about the negative B.S. about fake climate change. What’s interesting, but impossible to see if you subscribe to global warming, is that not only is all the predictions that have been made not come true but that during this same period, and predictions for the future, the contradictions are laughable.

The Free Press of Maine says that moose and red spruce trees are going to rent Ryder Trucks and move to Canada before they all die from “Climate Change.” Models, the worthless devices that they have proven to be, keep telling these clowns that Maine is going to eventually be just like New Jersey. Can you imagine that? I hope they are talking about climate and not about the “state” of New Jersey. Which reminds me of the guy who went to the doctor and found out he had six weeks to live. He told the doctor he was moving to New Jersey. When the doctor asked why, he told the doctor that things are so miserable in New Jersey, six weeks seems like six months.

But seriously, even if this hocus-pocus, voodoo science Climate Change nonsense was even real, would it be so bad? Forget that even though we are continuously misinformed that Maine has warmed 3 or 4 degrees “on average” (never forget to toss in that qualifier), there are no indications that anything is changing. Would we notice it if it did? Maine has more moose than ever before and deer in some locations are missing. According to Climate Alarmists, it should be the other way around. And, if it was, would that be a bad thing?

It might be a bad thing for those trying to kill moose with disease in order to make a buck or two (dollars that is) but what about the deer? Deer hunting used to be big business and it was great family fun. Would it be so bad that there would be, once again, some deer around to fill the freezer? Hunting camps might be covered in oak and maple leaves instead of pine and spruce needles, but we can live with that.

The Alarmist also say that there won’t be any spruce trees left and will be replaced with maples and oak trees. I say good riddance to the spruce trees. I’m sick of hearing about spruce budworm and all the environmental woes involved with that. Sure dimension lumber might tick up in price but according to the news, all them trees are moving to Canada. We can buy them back pretty much like we are now. What’s the big deal?

Maple trees make good sugar and oaks provide a great mast crop for a myriad of wildlife. I’m guessing it would still be cool enough to need a wood fire to take the chill off. With so many maples and oaks around, I bet firewood prices would fall through the floor. That’s good for the consumer.

It might even become so warm the black flies will skedaddle.  Wouldn’t that be a shame.

This years record-breaking snowfall, I guess, would become record-breaking rainfall. Is that good or bad?

If the spruce trees migrated north that would mean no more spruce budworm, which would mean no more clear-cuts. This of course is not good for the moose but it’ll be too warm here anyway. They’ve already rented the moving truck. But, with no clear cuts, the snowshoe hare will disappear and that would mean the Canada lynx will go wherever the rabbits have gone and Mainers could get back to trapping in normal fashion.

Maine is filled with seasonal jobs and employees. That’s why you sometimes see business signs that read, “Cabinetry and Firewood.” All I want to know is which came first. Some of those seasonal jobs are plowing snow from driveways and parking lots. Those would have to be replaced, perhaps by jobs that are not so dependent on the extremes of climate. Sounds bad but there’s something to be said about a steady, year-round job.

The ski industry would suffer but not as much as they might think. It’s a dead end industry now, where each ski resort competes for the tiny few who can afford to do it anyway – much like golf; which, by the way, would become a year-round opportunity. Probably time-share sales would spike through the roof and Katahdin Woods and Waters would become the new Disney of the North. Imagine! Those ski areas could be turned into mountain bike parks, theme parks, with activities like wild hog watching, or, if it gets real bad, guided alligator hunts. Look at what happened to Orlando after Disney moved in.

As you can see the foolishness can get easily out of control as can the nonsense and spouting on and on about how we’re all going to die. Most people prosper in warmer climates and history has shown us that the most bountiful years have come during spells of warmth – the opposite when it’s cold.

Can We Stop the “Social Justice” of Wildlife Management?

Over the past few years, I have made many an utterance condemning the idiotic “social justice” approach to wildlife management. Perhaps if deer, bear, moose, loons, piping plovers, and all other animals, could sit down to a cup of coffee and “tell us how they really feel.” The job of providing for their welfare would be a bit easier…or not. Our human society, at present, believes that providing things for free – by utilizing another person’s money – is the correct thing to do, along with forcing idealistic lifestyles onto others. Evidently wildlife management is not exempt.

Animals can’t tell us how they feel, what they want, where they prefer to live and what their basic enjoyments in life are. Because we can’t communicate with animals, as with man, we are supposed to use science to figure this all out. There once was a day when it was acknowledged that in order to understand animals and care for their existence, the tried and proven principle of honest, scientific method and approach was an honorable challenge.

Today it seems that this scientific approach to wildlife management has been replaced with a form of social justice, the result of which has created a form of scientific injustice.

Social Justice can be defined as, “justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society.” With each enforcement of social justice, all hopes at individuality and even self-determination are forever lost.

Social Justice is a Leftist term of idealism. Environmentalism and Agenda 21, both glorified perpetuations of social justice, has put a stranglehold on future individualism and aides in the destruction of God-given rights. Agenda 21, pretending to be a guideline to “save the planet,” was the infrastructure needed by those seeking social justice. It has been woven into the very fabric of American life. Every movement we make, we run face to face with “sustainable development” – the ultimate destroyer of self determination and individualism – perhaps even life itself.

Agenda 21, therefore, has become a dominant theme in wildlife management, even if never spoken. It seems, whether by design or happenstance, no decisions within wildlife management departments, crafted to care for our wildlife, can be made unless first they seek the wishes of society. With a fully propagandized public, surely wildlife management has become a form of social justice. To continue this thought process, understand that “Climate Change” (note it’s in capitals) is all a part of Environmentalism, Agenda 21 Sustainable Development and Social Justice. They didn’t just independently appear one day.

I’m not here to debate the proclamation that all wildlife belongs to all the people. That’s not what this is about. Whatever happened to when wildlife departments, their foundations built on a firm understanding of the responsibilities before them, devised scientific management plans to achieve the goals that they knew would satisfy a majority of the public, and stand behind those decisions with strong, honest and real science to support it? Today, regardless of science, if you have enough money and holler loud enough, you’ll get what you want. The system is gamed.

So where are we? Can or will we ever return to rational, scientific wildlife management? Probably not, however, before the doom arrives, we might witness some degree of a push-back. It might even be a substantial one.

To be forthcoming, please understand that I do not subscribe to the idea that there are two political systems diametrically opposed to one another. The paradigm is manufactured, the result of which is vividly on display presently coming off the November presidential election. It all about propagandized perceptions.

Because the paradigm is fake, doesn’t mean that the perceptions of the people are fake as well. They honestly believe what they say and do…or at least they feel convinced enough to say and do some pretty far out things. As Yehushua stated in the last moments of his earthly life, “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.”

Some are calling the events and fallout of the election a sudden fall of the Left and a rapid rise of the Right. Reading “Wretchard’s”, Richard Fernandez’s recent column, is a great example of how some are seeing things.

The premise being presented here is that the Left pushed and pushed and reached a point where they considered themselves to be in the catbird’s seat controlling everything of importance within their progressive lifestyle. All of a sudden, the Left came crashing down as the great wall of the Right was rapidly built around Donald Trump. As Fernandez describes it, “In an instant what was formerly yielding pudding becomes incredibly resistant like liquid armor.  The Left hits a wall.  Progressives, perplexed at this sudden change in resistance doubles down.  But this makes the liquid armor even more impenetrable and they double down some more. Unable to understand i[f] they naturally  blame conspiracies.”

So, what is this? Is any of this real? I’ll let you answer that question, however, there is everything real about perceptions. Perceptions are what guide us. It’s the forming of those perceptions that have, historically, been an extremely dangerous thing.

In the dozen years or so that I have covered the emotional politics of wolves, this paradigm of Left vs. Right (perhaps better recognized as Rep. vs. Dem. or better yet, Liberal vs. Conservative) has run its course of ups and downs. Often I wrote of how the Left (Environmentalists, Animal Rights advocates, Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Social Justice warriors) always pushes for more; exercising their perceived power of controlling all things wolf, ignoring any and all opposition to their determination at achieving social justice for an animal regardless the cost. To what extreme will the Right go, if allowed?

The “pudding,” at times, runs up against “liquid armor.” In the Left’s comfort and incorrect perceptions of power, they went too far. The perceptions of the Left caused them to feel as though things have come crashing done on them. The Right began their push back. They are feeling power, some control. And so it goes. There is no ending.

I don’t believe for one minute that the progressive lifestyle is dead. Too many people love their immoral lifestyles, made legitimate in the minds of Leftists claiming a “changing world,” where all things desired must be achieved void of any thought toward morality and decency. But they do not see their world that way. What is dead is the lifestyle of tolerance, anchored by a truly moral foundation.

It matters not whether you and I want to accept the manufactured internal war of Left and Right. The reality is that a very large population of people believe (perceive) in “their side” and we are receiving hints that some are ready to fight to the death for it. What a very huge mistake that would be, especially when an honest examination of what one is fighting for is undertaken.

Historically, it has been a common existence of what appears to be ups and downs, or maybe Rights and Lefts, as each “side” maneuvers their pawns on a chess board in hopes of gaining more power than the other. Is any of it real, at least beyond the ends of their noses?

The perception may be that the Left has been in control too long. Their idealism has been forced onto the American people, for a time long enough that those on the Right believe they have “fought against” the “pudding” and have created “liquid armor.”

What then will happen to wildlife management by Social Justice, Agenda 21, Sustainable Development and Climate Change?

I’m offering little hope that wildlife management will ever return to what it should be, but can I help you to better understand?

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) is in the process of keeping their cash flow solvent, by complying with the blackmail practices of the Federal Government, to devise game management plans for deer, moose, turkey and bear. In all preliminary readings of what to expect in these revised management plans, there is a common and readily repeated theme of making decisions within the plan based on social tolerances. In this case the social tolerances are the result of strong-arm indoctrination of Social Justice, through Environmentalism, Agenda 21 and Climate Change.

With this mind manipulation running its course and having achieved giant strides in promoting its agenda, there is little hope, short of a massive flow of liquid armor.

Perhaps another example of blind ignorance as to what has befallen us, can be seen in Maine’s effort to lay out tens of thousands of dollars to hire a company to conduct a survey of the Department and their practices. And because it’s a “well-known” and “well-respected” company, are we supposed to blindly take their propaganda, bought and paid for by MDIFW, as the gospel?

All questions in this survey are general in nature, with little or no specifics, including background data that might prompt the questions. The multiple choice of answers never include all the answers – only the ones the company wants you to choose from – often leaving respondents frustrated. Did I mention the survey was bought and paid for by MDIFW? (Learn about the Delphi Technique)

But, I don’t want to create my own distraction. Now that MDIFW has THEIR survey results, all, of course, favorable to MDIFW, that will become their answer, along with Climate Change, for everything. We’ve already seen it. It’s nauseating once you understand it.

I have searched for any kind of legislation that Maine might have that forces MDIFW to consider social tolerances within their wildlife management plans. I have found nothing. One then can only conclude that the choice to implement social tolerances into scientific processes, is that of a state government so deeply indoctrinated in the idealism of Social Justice, they believe it is the correct thing to do. How do you counter that? Isn’t this same sort of Social Justice prevalent at all levels of government, throughout all departments?

We have seen in this most recent presidential election one the biggest, if not the biggest swings in political idealism. Whether real or imagined, if this political push-back, i.e. the liquid armor, has and will have actual destructive powers to dismantle, at least to some degree, the progressive lifestyle running rampant in this nation, remains to be seen. Will any of this backlash and power gained, trickle down into state’s fish and game departments, like Maine’s, that will spoil the “pudding” of the progressives who have taken over wildlife management? One can only hope. Or none of this is real.

At some point in time, many aspects of wildlife management, based on Romance Biology and VooDoo Science, will run their course. Some people will see. Some won’t, nor do they want to. A push-back will ensue. To what strength remains to be seen. I doubt any will go noticed. The beast is too big with not enough people left who care enough to do anything about it. They love their Kool-Aid. Drink it and like it.

But always remember that democracy, as we have been brainwashed to believe is such a wonderful thing, is two wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner. Perhaps at one meal time there may be two sheep and one wolf.

 

 

We’re All Gonna Die! Or Maybe Just the Canada Lynx

But never fear the Climate-Changemongers are doing the best they can to earn money and retire with cushy pensions.

I read recently that a former employee of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Mark McCollough, who went to work for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and has since been protected by his government agency, is planning to speak in Bangor on his, and others, strategies to save the Canada lynx from “Climate Change.”

What a scam!
