Secrets of the Secret Society in Idaho

Secrets of the Secret Society in Idaho

Yates was pretty cagey but I have no doubt that he knows what’s going on.  He just didn’t want to tell Doyle Beck because Doyle is going to blow a gasket when he finds out.   Here’s the story Doyle… and this is for everybody’s grandchildren.

Steve apparently learned about it from a woman named Ann Rydalch.   A quick search on her name turned up this article in the Idaho State Journal:  Group to study Bonneville Community College Idea.  Ann Rydalch was appointed to be on a committee to study the idea of turning the Eastern Idaho Technical College into a Community College.   The article says that the Research & Business Development Center (RBDC) has been studying the issue to determine the economic impact.  I don’t even need to see the report to know that they will conclude that turning EITC into a Community College would be the best thing to ever happen to Idaho Falls.  [ NOT ]    I don’t want to get distracted on the RBDC, but there is a big clue on the brief bio about the founder of Center, Bob Pothier:

Bob is the founder of the E Center and later helped found SIRI. He is a partner with the RenewableTech Ventures and Epic Ventures. Prior to his work in the eastern Idaho region, he was chairman and chief executive officer of Rockford Corporation. Bob specialized in management team building, sales and marketing strategy development. He completed the Executive Program at Stanford University and holds a BS in finance from Brigham Young University.

From the Journal article above, here is the key to the conspiracy Doyle:

To help with the study, Regional Economic Development for Eastern Idaho (REDI) and the Idaho National Laboratory, thanks to funds from Battelle Energy Alliance, donated $25,000 and $20,000, respectively, on Tuesday.

REDI’s chief executive officer Jan Rogers, who’s worked in economic development in southern Idaho for 14 years, said she has seen the value of a community college firsthand. She called the College of Southern Idaho’s efforts to meet students’ and businesses’ needs “a really critical aspect of economic vitality for that region.”

Jan Rogers was the Director of the Southern Idaho Economic Development Organization (SEIDO) located in Twin Falls. She resigned from that position sometime in the summer of 2015.  The announcement of her appointment to the Regional Economic Development Corporation (REDI) says that REDI was formed out of two economic development organizations – one in Bonneville County and one in Bingham County.

“We are thrilled to have Jan Rogers join REDI as CEO” said Park Price, President REDI and the Chairman of the Bank of Idaho”.

According to a REDI press release on July 23, Rogers is responsible for the “Magic Valley Miracle” because of SEIDO’s success in landing food manufacturing giants such as Chobani and Clif Bar.

SEIDO

SEIDO is embedded in the office of the President of the College of Southern Idaho.   The following is a diagram on the various entities that are operating from within the College of Southern Idaho (CSI) that have nothing to do with the mission of educating Idaho young people.

Notice that Jan Rogers is or was on the Board of Directors of the International Economic Development Council.   And she is connected with Obama’s  Select USA program that seeks foreign direct investment in the U.S.  They are not particular where the money comes from – nor are they concerned about destroying the culture and character of American rural communities.   In fact, their objective is to destroy that culture and character by changing the demographics, the politics and the “governing structure” of the region.

While Jan Rogers was at SEIDO, she brought Chobani, Inc.  formerly Agro Farma to Twin Falls.  Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO of Chobani is a Turkish Kurd.  He came to the U.S. in 1994 as an exchange student.   There is a lot to say about Hamdi Ulukaya that that can’t be said here because the story is too long.  Suffice it to say that the Fulton County Economic Development Corporation in New York ensured his success by facilitating substantial loans and grants to him from banks, but also the state and federal governments.   He had the political support of Senator Chuckie Schumer and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo during the New York phase of Agro Farma.    When the pieces of the puzzle of Hamdi Ulukaya are all laid on the table, they don’t fit a normal business model.  He was given extraordinary assistance that he was not qualified on any level to get.

In Twin Falls, Jan Rogers of SEIDO also extended extraordinary assistance to Ulukaya.  The Deal Sheet that was published on the Twin Falls City website showed that Ulukaya, an alleged billionaire put in only $18,000 on a $25 million deal for the property and infrastructure requirements for Chobani in Twin Falls. Curiously, that $18,000 was for water meters.

While researching Ulukaya’s activities in New York, I found a publication produced by the Fulton-Montgomery Community College that explains the new role for Community Colleges in “governance” of regions.   The title of the publication is “Community Colleges:  Partners in Community Development”.   On pages 15-16, it says the following concerning the role of community colleges:

Historically, community colleges’ role in the local economy included: 1) it’s presence (payroll, purchases, etc.); 2) preparing students to enter the workforce; 3) improving basic skills; 4) providing the first two-years of education for professionals; 5) providing business specific courses; 6) providing student interns and co-ops to area businesses; 7) pre-screening for employment in area companies; 8) providing placement service for students; and, 9) providing customized training for local companies.24 Again, all of these services center around education and workforce development.

Some states are beginning to consider how their community college system can assist the state with economic development beyond preparing the workforce. Virginia has been exploring the community college role in economic development for decades…

Community colleges can, and should, play a larger role in community and economic development. They can serve as leaders for resolving community issues even when a solution is not one of education.  Community colleges are comprised of highly educated and creative people who can assist with problem-solving in any number of issues that may affect a community. This is especially true for rural community colleges (over 50% of the community colleges in the U.S.) as these institutions are often the only institution of higher education in the region. History suggests that rural communities are often difficult to change because of highly entrenched political and economic structures. However, community colleges as highly visible public institutions can bring together business, government, and community members as a convener of people and a facilitator of discussions around an issue. They can work to move a community forward and energize a core group of people for change with a fact-based, creative, and unemotional approach to visioning the future.

Add to the unemotional approach, unaccountable because there is no accountability with this systemic change in our government structure.    In the “reinvented” governing structure, the American system of government with elected officials is being covertly replaced with a “governance” system that operates out of community colleges within rural communities.   It is a technocratic fascist-led system of communism  –  “commun – ism”.    Our elected representative government stays in place but it becomes just a façade and elected officials become eunuchs.  The “commun”  – partnership of business and governance officials operate in the shadows of the community college.  That’s where the real political and economic power resides in the “commun-ist” system of governance.

As for the Secret Society, it can’t be named for sure because it is secret, but they are following the model and patterns of the Tammany Society of New York.  The Tammany Society has a formula for corruption famously known through the story of Boss Tweed and the corrupt political machine he built through the Democrat Party.   From the George Washington University website:

“Throughout the 1830s and 1840s, the society expanded its political control even further by earning the loyalty of the city’s ever-expanding immigrant community, a task that was accomplished by helping newly arrived foreigners obtain jobs, a place to live, and even citizenship so that they could vote for Tammany candidates in city and state elections. By 1854, all these factors had combined to make Tammany a political force of hegemonic proportions in New York City, conferring immense power on the society’s bosses and allowing them to enrich themselves and their associates through corruption and administrative abuse. William M. “Boss” Tweed’s infamously corrupt reign was nefarious enough to incite an attempt at reform in the early 1870s, but Tammany was consistently able to function in spite of such efforts and continued to direct the flow of money, patronage, and votes into the early 1930s.”

 In the modern context, the way they keep power is through community policing.  The immigrants are encouraged to demand rights and accommodations from the majority population.  Trouble ensues.  “Peace talks” between the immigrant community and public officials lead to the installation of the community policing program which brings members of the immigrant community into the local political power structure including the police even though they aren’t qualified.  The corruption that follows causes good policemen and good public officials to leave or they are forced out.  With corrupt police in place, the political machine is free to operate their corrupt system relatively openly – oppressing the majority who are left to wonder what happened to their city, county, state and federal governments because this corruption reaches all the way to the top – to the White House.

What are we to do?   We need to form citizen grand juries to investigate this systemic corruption and to begin to educate the public on the form of “governance” that has been imposed upon them.   They need to understand how our elected, representative government has been gutted and dis-empowered – replaced by the system of “governance” that is operating out of the community colleges and universities and how it is nourished by federal programs and money.   And it is imperative that these investigations begin immediately while there is still a chance to save our country from the ravages of communism or fascism depending upon which side of the “power line” you sit.

The Making Of Council Of Governments

 REPOSTED FROM TECHNOCRACY.NEWS

Texas COGS
TN Note: Here is an example of the making of an unconstitutional Council of Governments. COGs blanket the United States, and routinely usurp sovereignty and authority from the counties and communities in their “jurisdiction.” See the National Association of Regional Councils to locate the COG in your area. COGs are very much a part of the implementation of Agenda 21/Sustainable Development, and should be abolished.

The Steel Rivers Council of Governments began to take shape Thursday, a year after its predecessors’ boards set the merger in motion.

Members of the Twin Rivers and Steel Valley council boards authorized several measures to that end at a combined meeting at Steel Valley’s Homestead headquarters.

“I want you to feel at home,” Steel Valley president Raymond Bodnar of Munhall told his Twin Rivers counterparts as he wielded the gavel during a two-hour dinner meeting featuring turkey and pumpkin pie.

Twin Rivers president Monica Douglas Glowinski sat next to Bodnar, while Twin Rivers Solicitor Falco Muscante read four resolutions dealing with the merger and future funding, all of which passed unanimously.

The Steel Rivers council is made up of West Newton and 19 Allegheny County communities.

The first resolution, moved by Kenneth Hresko of Port Vue and seconded by James Sheedy of Versailles, is meant to bring about “the voluntary dissolution of the Twin Rivers Council of Governments pursuant to the provisions of the nonprofit corporation law of the commonwealth.”

The next one, moved by Hresko and seconded by Chuck Arthrell of Braddock Hills, authorized a federal Community Development Block Grant application for $103,950 in Year 42 project management funds. Year 42 begins July 1.

It and a third resolution, with its wish list of $2,670,450 for projects in 20 municipalities, both authorize Steel Valley to take action as “predecessor of the merged council of governments to be known as the Steel Rivers council.”

Attention America’s Suburbs: You Have Just Been Annexed

My Comments:  This is extremely dangerous for America and is straight out of the communist textbook and United Nations Agenda 21.  I would hope that American citizens would soon wake up to the fact that we are losing our country and our property very quickly.

By Stanley Kurtz

It’s difficult to say what’s more striking about President Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing  (AFFH) regulation: its breathtaking radicalism, the refusal of the press to cover it, or its potential political ramifications. The danger AFFH poses to Democrats explains why the press barely mentions it. This lack of curiosity, in turn, explains why the revolutionary nature of the rule has not been properly understood. Ultimately, the regulation amounts to back-door annexation, a way of turning America’s suburbs into tributaries of nearby cities. This has been Obama’s purpose from the start. In Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities, I explain how a young Barack Obama turned against the suburbs and threw in his lot with a group of Alinsky-style community organizers who blamed suburban tax-flight for urban decay. Their bible was Cities Without Suburbs, by former Albuquerque mayor David Rusk. Rusk, who works closely with Obama’s Alinskyite mentors and now advises the Obama administration, initially called on cities to annex their surrounding suburbs. When it became clear that outright annexation was a political non-starter, Rusk and his followers settled on a series of measures designed to achieve de facto annexation over time. The plan has three elements: 1) Inhibit suburban growth, and when possible encourage suburban re-migration to cities. This can be achieved, for example, through regional growth boundaries (as in Portland), or by relative neglect of highway-building and repair in favor of public transportation. 2) Force the urban poor into the suburbs through the imposition of low-income housing quotas. 3) Institute “regional tax-base sharing,” where a state forces upper-middle-class suburbs to transfer tax revenue to nearby cities and less-well-off inner-ring suburbs (as in Minneapolis/St. Paul). If you press suburbanites into cities, transfer urbanites to the suburbs, and redistribute suburban tax money to cities, you have effectively abolished the suburbs. For all practical purposes, the suburbs would then be co-opted into a single metropolitan region. Advocates of these policy prescriptions call themselves “regionalists.”

Did TPA Pass? Is It All Over?

 

REPOSTED FROM THE JOHN BIRCH SOCIETYMEMBERUPDATES
 
Yes and no! Wait, what? The House held a vote on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) on Friday. However, it also coupled it with a vote on Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA). Since they were linked together, both votes had to pass in orderforTPA to move forward to President Obama.
 

TPA did pass, but TAA did not.
The House will continue to push for a vote on TAA, which could come as soon as Tuesday. It’s imperative that you contact your Representative and ask him or her to vote NO on TAA. That will derail TPA.
To find the phone numbers for your Rep., click here. Then follow up with an email.
For further details on Friday’s vote, check out our alert that went out late Saturday evening and was posted online at JBS.org.
While it’s disappointing to see Republicans line up behind their leadership to support another unconstitutional measure that will eventually rob the US of its sovereignty and the American people of their independence, it’s a painful reminder that the fight we are in is not Left vs. Right or Democrat vs. Republican.
The battle we are engaged in is tyranny vs. liberty. Even those who are supposed to be standing with the Constitution can, will, and do operate against it. Many do because they are told and incentivized to do so; however, others do so deliberately as pawns in a much bigger game of globalism.
Countries are being steered toward regionalism as a stepping stone to integrated unions, and eventually into a world government. Take a look at the history of how the European Union was formed and look for the parallels currently seen with existing and those-now-being-negotiated trade agreements.

FEEDING THE PLAN WITH FEDERAL GRANT MONE

by Kathleen

“We live now in an era where normal values have been displaced. The good is called bad, the bad – good.” – Anna Politkovskaya.

“What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the Cold War, or the passing of a particular period of post-war history, but the end of history as such: that is, the end point of mankind’s ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government.” Francis Fukuyama, The End of History?

Using federal grant money to fund and expand the tentacles of Sustainable Development has a number of ugly realities. First, and easiest to understand, is that this is a money redistribution scheme that helps bankrupt both the federal government and the middle class. The money wasn’t allocated specifically by Congress to fund grants that come from HUD, EPA, DOT, DOE (and maybe other sources as well).

Second, the projects into which this money goes do very little to improve the infrastructure, to help stimulate the local economy or to benefit those it is ostensibly designed to help. I say ‘ostensibly’ because that is what those handing it out and those spending it say it is for, but it is truly a wealth redistribution plan as noted in first paragraph.

Let’s look at just one of the grant sources, the Community Development Block Grants:

As noted by the Cato Institute, CDBG activities are supposed to meet one of three objectives: (1) benefit low- and moderate-income persons, (2) prevent or eliminate slums or blight, or (3) address a serious need or threat that has particular urgency.9 A huge range of activities meet these criteria, including:

While CDBG funds are initially handed out to state and local governments, the ultimate beneficiaries are usually private businesses and organizations working on particular projects, such as shopping malls, parking lots, museums, colleges, theaters, swimming pools, and auditoriums. Here is a small sampling of projects funded in 2008.

These ‘plans,’ supposedly put together by the local metropolitan planning commission along with the city or county council are just like every other plan in every other community in the world. Yes, the world, not just the U.S. Can anyone say that Kalispell, Montana, San Francisco, California, Knoxville, Tennessee, Lhasa, Tibet and Saigon, Viet Nam are so alike that it is only natural that their General Plans for the next 10 or 20 or 50 years all look the same?

Moreover, these plans are building non-elected boards and regional councils made up of ‘stakeholders’ (private political organizations – NGOs affiliated with the UN – that are not local, but travel the nation, imposing Sustainable community plans, and thereby feeding off the grant money). Also cashing in are major corporations and business owners who are looking to cash in through Public Private Partnerships,

Look at just one local community’s take from the federal government and stop and think about how much control the feds take for their largess with your money. Then multiply that by every city and county in the country:

The Consolidated Plan establishes the basis and strategy for the use of federal funds granted to the City of Knoxville by the U. S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the following programs:

In addition to CDBG, HOME and ESG programs, the City received stimulus funds in 2009 and is implementing Neighborhood Stabilization Program-1 (NSP-1), Community Development Block Grant – Recoverfy (CDBG-R), and

Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing (HPRP) programs. The projects funded with these funds will continue until they are completed and all funds are expended.
