A must if you want to know what is happening to the sea life in the Pacific Ocean.
Not being against the pipeline I did have some, reservations no pun intended, about the route of the pipeline and the possible, I repeat the possible encroachment on reservation land. I think the aggressionfrom the feds upon the protesters was to much. So I kept my eye on what was happening.
The protesters were protesting an environmental possibility. The possibility of a potential pollution of water. The protesters were all up in arms that the pipeline might, I repeat, might pollute the water.
Now that the pipeline is going forth, the protesters have left the sight of a makeshift camp, of a population in the thousands. People came from all over to support the protest of this would be polluting project.
I must now express my disgust and disappointment in the protesters. Just like other long-term protests that have taken place, the aftermath is a garbage dump.
The environmental impact on the water supply is disgusting. The human waste is appalling. The tents and tarps and food waste, sleeping bags, blankets, foam pads, plastic totes, containers, styrofoam coolers, cardboard boxes of supplies for living. Large burn barrels, piles of firewood for warming tepees and cooking fires. The unused cases of canned goods and water. The list goes on….
Then as if environmental impact wasn’t bad enough as the protesters leave they set fire to this garbage.
The burning of some of this makeshift camp is a much larger impact than a pipeline that carries oil. The Alaska pipeline (Alyeska pipeline)has been in use for 40 years and has been running pretty smooth. It put 70,000 people to work.http://www.alyeska-pipe.com/TAPS/HistoryDesignConstruction
You make the call but my take is that this was and example of serious hypocrisy!!??
I do beleive the indigenous people were used for someone elses agenda.
In a well thought out piece, we learn that Obama has eyes on the Arctic. Of course, to remove any opportunity for oil and gas exploration and adding to the larder of government controlled land and …
Today WikiLeaks begins its series on deals involving Hillary Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta. Mr Podesta is a long-term associate of the Clintons and was President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff from 1998 until 2001. Mr Podesta also controls the Podesta Group, a major lobbying firm and is the Chair of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a Washington DC-based think tank. Part 1 of the Podesta Emails comprises 2,060 emails and 170 attachments and focuses on Mr Podesta’s communications relating to nuclear energy, and media handling over donations to the Clinton Foundation from mining and nuclear interests; 1,244 of the emails reference nuclear energy. The full collection includes emails to and from Hillary Clinton.
In April 2015 the New York Times published a story about a company called “Uranium One” which was sold to Russian government-controlled interests, giving Russia effective control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for the production of nuclear weapons, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of US government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off the deal was the State Department, then headed by Secretary Clinton. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) comprises, among others, the secretaries of the Treasury, Defense, Homeland Security, Commerce and Energy.
As Russian interests gradually took control of Uranium One millions of dollars were donated to the Clinton Foundation between 2009 and 2013 from individuals directly connected to the deal including the Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Telfer. Although Mrs Clinton had an agreement with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors to the Clinton Foundation, the contributions from the Chairman of Uranium One were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons.
When the New York Times article was published the Clinton campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, strongly rejected the possibility that then-Secretary Clinton exerted any influence in the US goverment’s review of the sale of Uranium One, describing this possibility as “baseless”.
Mr Fallon promptly sent a memo to the New York Times with a rebuttal of the story (Podesta Email ID 1489).
In this memo, Mr Fallon argued: “Apart from the fact that the State Department was one of just nine agencies involved in CFIUS, it is also true that within the State Department, the CFIUS approval process historically does not trigger the personal involvement of the Secretary of State. The State Department’s principal representative to CFIUS was the Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs. During the time period in question, that position was held by Jose Fernandez. As you are aware, Mr Fernandez has personally attested that “Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter.”
What the Clinton campaign spokesman failed to disclose, however, was the fact that a few days before sending his rebuttal to the New York Times, Jose Fernandez wrote on the evening of the 17 April 2015 to John Podesta following a phone call from Mr Podesta (Email ID 2053): “John, It was good to talk to you this afternoon, and I appreciate your taking the time to call. As I mentioned, I would like to do all I can to support Secretary Clinton, and would welcome your advice and help in steering me to the right persons in the campaign”.
Five days after this email (22 April 2015), Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon wrote a memo to the New York Times, declaring that “Jose Fernandez has personally attested that ‘Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter’,” but Fallon failed to mention that Fernandez was hardly a neutral witness in this case, considering that he had agreed with John Podesta to play a role in the Clinton campaign.
The emails show that the contacts between John Podesta and Jose Fernandez go back to the time of internal Clinton campaign concern about the then-forthcoming book and movie “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer on the financial dealings of the Clinton Foundation.
In an email dated 29 March 2015 (Email ID 2059), Jose Fernandez writes to Podesta: “Hi John, I trust you are getting a brief rest after a job well done. Thanks no doubt to your recommendation I have joined the CAP [Center for American Progress] board of trustees, which I’m finding extremely rewarding.”
They are back at it again….. BLM will now let the people help them acquire the land that the Bundy ranch now occupies. Lots of nay sayers will say “NO they are not going to do that” because the BLM doesn’t want the land. Then why pull together all the different non-profit conservation groups to put Gold Butte into conservation. This is exactly why the BLM went after the Bundy’s in the first place. The Harry Reid and Chinese project did not work out so now to save face with the UN Agenda 21 bunch they will go forth and put tons of Gold Butte land into conservation. It did work outright so good old Harry will do it the old fashion way. Stir up the conservation bunch (tree huggers, frog lickers, tortoise lovers, rapid eco people). Let crazys go berserk about saving the land and the rocks and the scrub brush and the trees and the cactus and the bugs and bees and tortoise but not the Human being who has ranched the land for 100 plus years. The human being who improved the land for the wildlife. These eco people are from a faction of society that believe that all people are destroying “mother earth”. The ultimate in sustainable development!
Why would any one feel the need to take land away from people who improve the land and give it to a privatized 501-c3 organization just to impose more of Agenda 21 (2030). The corporatizing of united states of America land is a crime!Your tax dollars at work to allow people to take land so they can play on it and no one else can!
READ the following to see what they are up to……..
BUNKERVILLE, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management is planning to resume work in the Gold Butte region in northeastern Clark County, Nevada, after two years of absence. BLM employees have not been working in the field in Gold Butte since early 2014 because of safety concerns following an armed standoff with Cliven Bundy and …
Go to bottom of post for a link to a video showing more Uraniom One connection to BLM and others.
Uranium One has purchased Uranium thru Hillary Clinton. Thats a problem all by itself. But lets look at the situation with mining the Uranium. First off everyone needs to look at the environmental impact statement of whatever company will be mining the Uranium and look at the mitigation statement of the same.
More than likely there is a huge impact statement plus a large amount of land mitigation. (put land into conservation for said impact) If the Uranium deposit is as large as it appears to be then the mitigation of land will be huge. In simple terms if the land will be affected by mining then an equal or larger amount of land must be put in conservation in order to mitigate the impact of said operation.
Both EIS (environmental impact statement) and mitigation plan are required for operation of said entity whether it is an office building or a mine. So lets say the impact of operation is 200 acres then another 200 acres are required for mitigation of the 200 acre site. Now lets look at other factors will the operation of said company affect the air quality in the surrounding air. Then this will impact more acreage due to prevailing winds and other environmental factors. Lets say the winds carry a toxin across 300 more affected acres. Then the mitigation will require more land another 300 acres give or take depending upon the fallout of the prevailing winds. Now lets look at the water quality. How much water is affected this becomes a factor as well. Just like the Bundy situation how is the wildlife affected and how much land will be needed for the displacement of wildlife (flora and fauna).
In the case of Oregon the whole eastern side of the state could be part of an environmental impact and require exorbitant amounts of land for mitigation. In that the government would not only have to displace (flor and fauna) they would also have to displace the human element as well. And if the mitigation plan is delayed (there are time lines set for them)more than six months a whole new impact statement is required and a new mitigation plan is made. This process could delay a project by up to 2 years.
So back to the Hammonds the government required the Hammonds to be displaced for mitigation in order to go forth with the mitigation plan on time. When the deadlines approach the organizations panick and get ugly just like they did to the Hammonds.

Aurora uranium mine project on hold: According to Oregon Energy, “the project is on ice and not moving forward due to uranium prices and sage grouse issue.” (NRC Memo Dec. 12, 2013)
Notice of Intent provided to submit license application for Aurora project: On Apr. 4, 2012, Energy Ventures Limited announced that Notice of Intent to submit a Source Material Facility License Application has been provided to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). This notice relates to the proposed development of a uranium processing plant and tailings management facility at the Company’s Aurora Uranium Project.
Company presents project for Aurora open pit uranium mine and mill: The results of Oregon Energy’s test drilling at the Aurora uranium deposit in southeast Oregon has encouraged the company to go ahead with its plans for an open-pit mine at the site, and Oregon Energy’s president Lachlan Reynolds says Oregon Energy is willing to drop $200 million to establish the mine.
Gary Lynch, assistant director of the Mineral Land Regulation and Reclamation Program of Oregon’s Department of Geology and Natural Resources (DOGAMI) says Oregon Energy presented its proposal at a public meeting of the DOGAMI governing board on Sept. 13 but the company has not yet submitted an application for a mine.
The mine area, according to Chris Hansen of the Oregon Natural Desert Association (ONDA) , is “absolutely core sage grouse habitat.” Sage grouse have been in decline in Oregon. According to ONDA, there is warrant to list the rapidly disappearing sage grouse under the Endangered Species Act, but thanks to politics and a backlog with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the sage grouse is on a waiting list with 250 other species. Two drainages of Cottonwood and McDermitt Creeks go through the site, and Fish and Wildlife documents show that the creeks or their tributaries are endangered species listed Lahontan cutthroat trout habitat.
Oregon Energy plans to process the uranium on the site, which is also a concern for Hansen. (Eugene Weekly Sep. 29, 2011)
The Willamette Week reported on an Australian Company planning to mine the Uranium in Malheur County http://www.wweek.com/portland/article-18572-a_glowing_opportunity.html “It’s uranium—and the county has what may be the biggest sources in the U.S. “
The following is a link to a letter of Agreement to Acquire the Aurora Uranium”. Pay very close attention to the purchase agreement. Two million dollars for 100% (percent) interest in the property. (for the deposit in Malheur County.)
The following link is to the OregonLive (The Oregonian site. They reported on the deposit in 2012. http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2012/01/malheur_county_targeted_for_go.html
Based on the time frame of these articles and letters of agreement it is about time for the projects to move forward. To do so they must displace all property owners in order to mine the Uranium and Gold. The acquisition of the land is the most important key. If the deposits of these minerals are as large as I think, the whole eastern side of Oregon could be taken for mitigation of these projects.
Here is more proof that Uranium One is doing whatever for the Uranium:
Look at these articles. Proof that Hanford is a poison on the land and the Columbia River. All the “save the salmon” and the taking of land for conservation is a bunch of bunk now. There are many youtube videos about this also.
Everyone mush pressure the FEDS to stop the madness. Where are all the environmentalists????
Watch this video and get educated on radiation exposure.
Don’t deny what is happening in the world.
It obviously is never about the fish or the frog or tortoise or the bears or the plankton or the bug. For years people of the earth have been saying that animals and mammals are going endangered or extinct. People have been lied to. Believing that we need to throw lots of money into conservation. People have been lied to and made to believe that only organized conservation will save all species. They have been brainwashed into believing man is the biggest threat to animal (flora and fauna) on the planet. Well they are half right. The big money people who want it all to themselves are the culprit. The world leaders have gone so far as state that “animals” should have the same rights as people. The world court has had lawsuit after lawsuit representing animals because tier environment and right to live is in jeopardy. Yet, now the biggest threat to animals is currently taking place and the people of the world are being lied to.
The UN has launched a whole world-wide movement to save the whole earth and give animals rights in the world court. http://www.ejnet.org/ej/principles.pdf
The pope even jumped on board for environmental justice. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/26/world/europe/pope-francis-united-nations.html?_r=0
Well I think all of these people who jumped on board with the movement have been lied to and have lied to themselves (these are called deniers). The people who voted for taxes in Vancouver, Washington for conservation have been bilked.
All the billions and billions of dollars spent and all land taken for conservation of species is for NOT. The whole Pacific Ocean and ALL of the sea life are DEAD. The Fukushima melt down has been leaking for FIVE years. The rivers have very little fish returning . The species that depend on the fish are starving. The eco system that was so precious to save, enough so they had to take people’s land for conservation, is now in a death spiral due to radiation leaking into the pacific ocean.
Look where it got you now there are no more fish in the Pacific Ocean.
I will call the people who are still thumping the Climate Change mantra stupid and insolent. Wake up people the Pacific Ocean fish DIE OFF is not, I repeat, DIE OFF , is not due to “el Nino” or “el Nina” or any other climate change option you want to believe. The DIE off is happening because no one will stop the biggest disaster in world history, of our time. The spent fuel rods are still 5 years later leaking into the pacific ocean.
And they said Nuclear Energy was green. WHAT IS SO GREEN ABOUT IT NOW?
Please watch the following video about Fukushima:
This will be the most important video you will watch today.
