With Obama’s Blessing, Nation’s Water Supply Disappearing





Obama Official Portrait SC

Shocking statistics surfacing about record busting, low water levels in America’s Great Lakes make no mention of the sale of fresh water supplies by private companies to China, or of President Obama’s executive order and the legal loophole allowing these sales.  “Two of the Great Lakes have hit their lowest water levels EVER RECORDED,” the US Army Corps of Engineers reported early this year. Corps measurements taken in January of 2013 “show Lake Huron and Lake Michigan have reached their lowest ebb since record keeping began in 1918.”  The chief watershed hydrology expert warns Americans that “We’re in an extreme situation.”  Keith Kompoltowicz heads up the corps district office in Detroit as hand wringing, citizen angst, and shippers’ economic losses pile up.

“Plunging water levels are beyond anyone’s control,” says another expert, James Weakley. But in one of our most popular posts, last year we warned, “Lake Michigan water is being shipped by boat loads over to China!  By using a little known loophole in the 2006 Great Lakes Compact, Obama minions are allowing Nestle Company to export precious fresh water out of Lake Michigan to the tune of an estimated $500,000 to $1.8 million per day profit.” Recent heavy rains and snowfall may mitigate low Lake Michigan water levels somewhat, but this trend must be stopped NOW.

President George W. Bush signed into law safeguards for maintaining Great Lakes water, but clever corporate profiteers enabled by Obama Regime bureaucrats discovered this unnoticed loophole. By terming Great Lakes water a COMMODITY, they are selling it off to companies like Nestle for very low prices.  These water profiteers quickly realized a staggering “240 times markup, well over current production costs,” we reported. And so our American Great Lakes, which hold 20% of the world’s fresh water, is flowing into Asia.

This week, we received a blast Email from a citizens’ group up in arms about the privatization of US water supplies. “Water isn’t a human right,” according to one water profiteer who seeks to privatize and commodify our public resources. The bulletin continues, “From Pakistan to Canada, Nestle is busy draining millions of liters of our fresh water. . .in order to sell back to the public at record prices.”  Interestingly, Canada won an ambitious lawsuit stopping Nestle from draining our Lakes during a drought.  However, American plaintiffs are nowhere to be found.  This citizens’ letter asks us to remember President Obama’s Executive Order 13547, which is part of his Ocean Policy Initiative and the UN’s Law of the Sea treaty (L.O.S.T.)  Unless we ordinary voters and water drinkers step up to the proverbial plate on this crisis, water will be under the control of globalists and their private profiteers.

America’s Water Wars are an under-reported crime again us.  Four dams slated for permanent destruction, a red question mark over Hoover Dam’s future, the San Joaquin Valley, the sin of what was done to America’s breadbasket (namely California’s Central Valley), and now our revered Great Lakes and their massive watershed are under the crosshairs of government gone wild.  Citizens dedicated to keeping America’s water within our shores desperately need your attention and support. Go to www.us.sumofus.org to find out more.  Will you be saving your quarters in a piggy bank shaped like a fish to give to your grandchildren so they can put money into the coin slot by their kitchen faucets just to get a drink of water per day?





Wolves Kill Female Hikers, Liberals Cover It Up





Wolves

Surfacing this week are two seemingly unrelated events, but both carry the glaring theme of the federal government’s gross intrusion into the private lives of families and into the workings of local and state governments nationwide.  The long tentacles of the US Department of Justice appear to be stifling parental dissent against Common Core, while the US Department of Fish and Wildlife continues to force predatory wolf packs into already inundated Western rural communities and wilderness areas.

The recent disappearance and death of two female hikers in and around the Boise, ID Craters of the Moon hiking trails are causing outrage among residents who fear a massive scale cover up of what really happened to the two women.  The body of Amy Linkert has been found, but attempts to find out what really happened to Dr. JoElliot-Blakeslee, an employee of the Oregon Dept. of Corrections, are hitting major stonewalling by authorities who should be in the know.  Retired US Fish & Wildlife Biologist Jim Beers (jimbeers7@comcast.net) and other area citizens fear that a marauding wolf pack or other predators like a bear or a cougar may have attacked, killed and eaten the women.  “Distortions of the evidence to exonerate the wolves” may serve the larger aim of the feds who want the Gray Wolf to remain listed on the Endangered Species registry. Local residents want local control of wolf packs; they are demanding that wolf packs in their local zones be kept under jurisdiction of their local authorities. But the back story really may involve a federal effort to push Western ranchers, homeowners, hikers, and nature lovers indoors and off of ever shrinking American lands in order to give more control to the federal government!

US citizens nationwide are being urged by Western residents to comment at this address: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=FWS-HQ-ES-2013-0073 by the December 17, 2013 deadline for public comments.  Two talking points include the fact that the Gray Wolf is not in danger of extinction. In fact, populations now far exceed the numbers originally proposed for the recovery effort.  Beers warns that wolf populations have inundated the states of MT, ID, OR, and WA.  AZ and NM are slated to receive more wolf populations, courtesy of the feds, and CA, CO, UT, & TX are facing forcible injections of wolves.  Very dangerous wolf-hybrids are being sighted from IL, MO, and the Dakotas into OH & PA!

A second example of federal takeover comes from a Tea Party bulletin received by CiR this week.  The bulletin postulates that the US Dept. of Justice contacted the Volusia County Florida school district “over safety concerns due to parent protest and had the school board cancel the meeting!”  Parents were planning to protest the school board’s adoption of a World History textbook that features over 30 pages of flattering Islamic history and religious ideals but includes next to nothing of like density for Christianity or other world religions.  This World History text is part of the mandated Common Core standards developed and “sold” to unsuspecting local school authorities only too eager to take the federal dollars they now are learning have attached many long tentacles of federal control. The unsuspecting parents who found out what was going on, initially from one mother’s Facebook posting, rightfully are upset, yet now may not get their voices heard due to alleged pressure from the DoJ.  You can go to http://myvolusiaschools.org or call them at 386-734-7190 to find out if the parents’ concerns will be heard by their elected officials.  Remember, apathy is what got us to this point in American history.

Will anyone be around to speak out for you when they come to your schools, or your outdoors nature trails?

Obamanation: Children Die, Illegal Killer Pitied





Leaves


A magnificent Fall symbol of innocent childhood playtime became a scene of abject horror and death for little Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, 6, who died amidst the leaves of an Oregon autumn while her step-sister, Abigail Robinson, 11, died later in a Portland, Oregon hospital.  Reading the news story in the Oregon press by reporter Emily E. Smith would make you want to cry for the “victim,”  Dreamer Cynthia Garcia-Cisneros who just happened to mow down two helpless little girls playing in a pile of leaves.

Now this insensitive, obviously very left leaning reporter, chose to ignore the true victims of what happened, giving only one sentence, her lead, plus one small phrase to the dead children.  But Smith goes on and on about now the life of 18 year old Garcia-Cisneros is changed forever, because, somehow, this teen illegal, now “legal” immigrant drove her boyfriend’s mother’s car into the Autumn leaves, leaving death in her wake.  Reporter Smith commiserates for the “undocumented immigrant” by stating: “She cooked for them – her brother and father – and often took care of her 10-year-old nephew, who is disabled.”  Pointing out that the accused now faces two felony hit and run charges does not appear until paragraph five in the Smith piece.  Her passenger, Mario Echeverria, her love interest, faces one count of hindering prosecution because allegedly he took the family SUV to a car wash.  Perhaps the bump the Hispanics heard prompted them to take a second look after allegedly leaving the scene of the Autumn leaves.

Just consider how reporter Smith drills in on how this Hispanic driver now will be impacted:  “(She) was born in Mexico, has lived nearly all of her life in the U.S… has a driver’s license, a valid Social Security number…a temporary renewable work permit under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. . .”  Because, perhaps, of the largesse of President Barack Obama who ordered this young Hispanic woman and many of her fellow Dreamers into semi-legal status by means of executive fiat, these two ignored young girls are dead.  Coincidence, unintended consequences, or what?  The insensitive, politically correct reporter goes on to bemoan how the accused wants her own family, her own children, wanted to go into beauty school.  Hello, Reporter Smith. Why not provide readers with a eulogy for the little girls who never will have their own lives, or their own children, or who never will get to look beautiful?  Listen to this Smith gem: “She (the driver) can’t believe what’s going on, why it happened. . .She cries a lot.”  Not one word from Reporter Smith about tears shed by the families of the dead little girls, the real victims of this F grade news story.  A cub reporter in a 50′s journalism class would not have made it to Reporting 102 with coverage like this.  We had to delineate priorities of facts before we could put anything out there for print consumption!  Over and over our professors told us to lead with loss of life FIRST.  But then, our pitiful press has completely flipped what is and is not priority here in America.

This terrible October news story prompted a CiR commentator to respond: “There were two kids killed. How were they not seen by the driver. . .the writer of this article fails to show any remorse for the kids killed, but focuses on the poor illegal alien!”  The New York state resident is appalled by how illegals tear through her rural community, often sporting Illinois license plates, which, in turn, can be used to buy legal tags from New York.  “There are so many new arrivals, the traffic has increased by at least a third,” she says.  So from coast to coast, shining sea to shining sea, our executive in the Oval office sees fit to let illegals Dream their way onto our streets, our Autumn leaves, our lives, yet evidently feels no compunction for legal U.S. citizens.  But, perhaps, the politically correct Oregonian press story is simply doing what it does best, seeing the misery of anyone or anything but what is America, our America now in the Autumn of its years.

Disability Fraud Cost Taxpayers $2.5 billion

Throw-away track phones bought at a nearby dollar store.  Private investigator hired to trail working mom.  Massive document shredding days.  Bashing of hard drives.  Office Chaos. Wow. Is this the latest fiction novel on a crime themed best seller list?

No.  These are actual references in US House of Representatives hearings on the massive Social Security Disability Fraud Scandal.  Honest and dedicated federal employees, sickened and disgusted over the theft of money and services of US taxpayer dollars filed a whistleblower lawsuit to blow the lid off of a scandal that looks to bankrupt a federal agency founded for the sole purpose of giving truly disabled Americans the benefits they need.

A Social Security Disability Office on the border of Kentucky and Huntington, W. Virginia, is at the center of federal investigations into the activities of SSD supervisors who turned over huge numbers of cases in order to boost their own bonuses. They set up shop with one attorney, an administrative law judge and several obliging doctors for several years.

“I’m flabbergasted,” said Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), himself a physician, as he grilled witnesses for hours about the massive loss of taxpayer dollars.  “You abrogated your job as chief judge,” Senator Coburn told Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Charlie Andrus.  The alleged misdeeds of Judge David B. Daugherty were heard without his direct testimony because he fled the hearing room before proceedings began. And the attorney in question, Eric Conn, took the fifth on the advice of his own attorney.

Most pitiful to watch was the testimony of four female witnesses who told the Governmental Affairs Committee about numerous incidences of retaliation by SSD managers, supervisors, and even Judge Andrus himself who admitted playing a role in video taping Senior Clerk Sarah Carver, one of the principles in the whistleblower lawsuit.  Still employed, Carver, along with master docket clerk Jennifer Griffith, blew wide open the skulduggery that transferred about 2.5 billion taxpayer dollars into the benefit entitlements of disability claimants who were merely numbers on “DB’s Monthly Lists.” Carver said, “You could see massive numbers of favorable decisions going out. . .massive amounts of numbers.”  She explained how the Conn-Daugherty scheme worked.  The administrative law judge selected, or forum shopped cases by accessing computer selection lists he logged into from Master Docket clerk Griffith’s only web file.  Each month, Attorney Conn’s office manager Jamie Slone, under the alleged direction of the attorney, made sure the ALJ received these lists for processing by this same judge who, according to testimony, spent as little as 10 minutes per claimant on pre-completed forms!

Attorney Conn became the nation’s third highest paid disability lawyer and Daugherty approved an astounding 99.5% of cases, granting benefits to practically everyone who applied.  The national average for claimant approval is about 50%.  And what’s even worse is the cover up and complicity of the federal Social Security supervisors who allowed this travesty to continue for years!  Senator Coburn pointed out that this fund is scheduled to go bankrupt in 18 months, so honest American citizens who sincerely are disabled on the job won’t be receiving compensation!

What with the IRS scandal, the Bales disappearance for about two years from the EPA, this Social Security Disability fraud, and now the loss of countless millions of taxpayer dollars thanks to Obamacare, no one is being held accountable.  In fact, the EPA head even held a party for one supervisor who let that department’s dishonest use of services go on and on.

Is there anyone in the Obama administration’s senior tier who will fire anyone?
