States’ Rights is the Solution

States' Rights is the Solution

States’ Rights is the Solution

The Idaho Department of Water Resources (IDWR) is attempting to charge water rights holders for water released from storage. In other words, they want to charge the irrigators for water over the dam even though the irrigators haven’t used it.

Legislators were baffled by the actions of the IDWR. They talked about the Constitution, the law and an administrative farce of a hearing in which the Director of the IDWR appointed himself as the hearing officer and he made a decision on the water issue agreeing with himself.

Some of the thoughts that raced through my mind – excluding the expletives were: Really? The Irrigators are asking for the help of Idahoans on their water issue – when they quietly accept the vastly reduced electric power rates that all residential Idaho electric users subsidize? They want the help of Idahoans when they support illegal immigration so that they have cheap labor for their farms despite the cost to Idahoans for the lost jobs, increased costs for education and health care for that cheap labor? You’re telling me that the farmers in this state who have been silent on the refugee resettlement issue that will bring with it, the end western civilization… and they want our help? Aren’t you the same people who support the “free trade” agreements that have nearly destroyed the rest of the economy – putting Americans out of work and causing the export of manufacturing of this country while flooding our markets with cheap imports and now you want our help…Really?

And the legislators – the ones who are talking about the Constitution and water rights – aren’t they the same legislators who voted to approve HB 1/S.1067 requiring Idaho courts to recognize the decisions of foreign courts? Aren’t they the same legislators who allowed Idaho Power to put smart meters on our homes in violation of our rights to be secure in our homes and protected against electronic surveillance behind the walls of our homes and enabling extortion pricing? I wondered how many of those legislators voted to approve participation in the Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) in violation of Article 1, Section 10. And now they want us to recognize our Constitution, history and heritage on a water rights issue… Really?

Senator Grant Burgoyne said that he’s tried to find out why the IDWR is doing this but he can’t get a straight answer. He said the best answer he can get from the IDWR Director is that he wants to make everybody happy.

I’ve tried communicating with legislators in the past but was told that they want only bullet points. No detail, no context, no history – nothing but bullet points because they are really too busy to understand the issues. Ok.. here are your bullet points:

  • UN Agenda 21
  • Administrative System

Oh… but you say, that’s the United Nations program and it has nothing to do with our country. Wrong. When the Congress in 1945 voted to participate in the UN, they were voting away the sovereignty of our country. It didn’t happen immediately. It’s taken 70 years of incremental cannibalization of the American Constitutional system of government and at this point, it’s hanging by a thread.

The Agencies of the federal government operate through the Administrative System. Congress passes legislation that the Agencies use to create regulations. The regulations they are creating are the United Nations Agenda 21 program because the federal Agencies are required by law to enforce treaty obligations and they do it through the administrative system on the authority that Congress gives them.

To the irrigators and the legislators, you’ve been sleeping with the devil and now you want help to escape his clutches. Speaking for myself – and I believe the patriot community, we stand ready to help you reclaim states’ rights but you must do it for all Idahoans on all issues and not just for your own ox that was gored.

We must start by getting out of the interstate compacts and start dismantling the administrative systems within the state and extricating ourselves from the federal administrative systems. Laws, rules, regulations must be made by Idahoans – for Idahoans and not by outsiders to the state.

Are you man enough? Are you woman enough? Do you have any remnants of the guts and gumption of the pioneers who settled this land? You’re going to need them to rise to the occasion and to lead (that’s what you were elected to do) us out of this wilderness.

I hope you do because if you do, I’m in.

LEAKED: Environmentalists Caused California Drought to Protect This Fish [Video]

By for THE FEDERALIST PAPERS PROJECT

FISH

We’ve reported here about the severe drought in California; the worst in decades. It is believed to be partially man-made because of California’s extreme environmental regulations that are literally flushing fresh water out to sea.

Now, a new report by CNS News reveals the shocking reason for the drought.

Since California Democratic Governor Jerry Brown imposed water restrictions on the state’s residents on April 1, people have suddenly become interested in what government officials have described as “one of the most severe droughts on record.”

But for months, Republican Assemblywoman Shannon Grove — who represents part of Kern County, the second largest agricultural sector in the country – has been trying to get the word out about how Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations apparently are literally draining water into the sea all for the sake of a three-inch fish.

“I put together this short video to explain the real cause of California’s water shortage problems, which everyone is paying attention to now that the Governor has imposed water restrictions on the entire state,” Grove wrote on her Facebook page on April 3, the day she reposted the video she first published back in September.

“Share it with your friends who need to know the truth,” Grove wrote.

The truth, Grove said, is that the Endangered Species Act and its effort to protect the tiny delta smelt has taken water away from farmers.

That’s right, the worst drought in a century in California is because environmentalists want to be sure a 3 inch fish – the Delta Smelt – has enough water to swim in.

“All in all, California farmers fallowed about 500,000 acres of land this year,” the Wall Street Journal reported in June 2014. “But here’s the thing: much of this land could have been productive had the state stored up more water from wet years and not flushed 800,000 acre-feet into the San Francisco Bay last winter and an additional 445,000 acre-feet this spring to safeguard the endangered delta smelt.”

“That’s enough for roughly three million households to live on and to irrigate 600,000 acres of land,” the WSJ reported.

According to the University of California-Davis, this represents the “greatest water loss ever seen” for California agriculture and resulted in the loss of 17,000 seasonal and part-time jobs.

This policy is the height of irresponsibility. These extremists have no clue how many lives they are ruining due to their fanaticism. But, California’s farmers know all too well just how damaging these policies are to California’s food supply (and the food supply for many other states as well).

CNS News quotes one who personally knows why the problem now exists:

Grove went to talk to farmers about the drought, including Larry Starrh, the third generation in his family to work the land.

“It’s funny how back in the day drought was, you know, you would see dry conditions and you’d deal with it,” Starrh said. “But now you got added conditions … and I don’t think we can blame the weather for it.

“Today’s drought I think is more politically driven than weather-related,” Starrh said, and added that he doesn’t remember these kinds of problems until Congress passed the Endangered Species Act in 1973.

“Until that happened we were fine,” Starrh said. “We got through all our droughts with no issues.”

Ah, California – the place where liberalism is wreaking real world havoc on the people who live there and voted for it. Thank you, Gov. “Moonbeam”, for showing the world in real terms just how silly and dangerous the environmentalist movement is for all of us humans!
