  • California’s past megafloods – and the coming ARkStorm

    Guest Essay By Larry Kummer. Posted at the Fabius Maximus website. Summary: To boost our fear, activists and journalists report the weather with amnesia about the past. Ten year records become astonishing events; weather catastrophes of 50 or 100 years ago are forgotten. It makes for good clickbait but cripples our ability to prepare for the inevitable. California’s history of floods and droughts gives a fine example — if we listen to the US Geological Survey’s reminder of past megafloods, and their warning of the coming ARkStorm. ” A 43-day storm that began in December 1861 put central and southern...

    Trump Conservative ^ | 2/25/2017 | Rufus Shinra
    President Trump has done what has seemed like an impossible task for recent administrations, and that is to actually curb government spending and reduce the national debt by $12 Billion during his first month in office. Trump announced his achievement of reducing the national debt by sending out a tweet, which quickly caused the media to scramble for stories that could diminish this financial victory. The day before Trump was sworn into office, January 20, 2017, the national debt was $19,947 billion. A month later on February 21, 2017, the US debt was reduced to $19,935 billion, a decrease of...

The rest of the government is being run by career bureaucrats and a few Obama holdovers.

    Here's a tale of government waste involving all the usual suspects: incompetence, indifference, and laziness. The inspector general for the Social Security Administration discovered that a billion dollars in benefits was paid to people who had no Social Security numbers.  The benefits were paid to "representative payees" – people who were accepting benefit checks on behalf of another because the beneficiary was unable to manage his Social Security payments by himself. Seventeen percent of these representative payees were illegal aliens, according to the audit. Washington Times: Over the last decade, the agency paid $1 billion to 22,426 representative payees who "did...

    Social Matter ^ | Feb 9, 2017 | Vincent Hanna
    Reactionaries attend to political reality, not to political form. In politics, reactionaries study power, because politics is the struggle for power. Reactionaries study the structure, composition and nature of political regimes. Regimes can either be a monarchy/tyranny, an aristocracy/oligarchy, or a democracy/ochlocracy. The most important distinction in politics is between the rulers and the ruled. Thus, democracy is impossible; for even if the majority “rules”, power is actually in the hands of those who influence, instruct, and direct the minds of the majority. That leaves only two types of government and their shadows left: monarchy/tyranny or aristocracy/oligarchy. Reactionaries attend less...

    (WASHINGTON) - - How is possible that federal employees can actively attempt to sabotage President Trump and keep their jobs? Why is there no longer accountability in our federal government? The government has created a culture that negates the practice of hiring the best talent to serve the interests of the American people and, instead, simply creates good paying jobs for nice people. When I call them ‘nice’ I’m referring to their public behavior, not their hidden behavior and actions. In the Supreme Court case, Cleveland Board of Education v.

The poll, part of a global survey known as the Edelman Trust Barometer, also found a profound distrust of the nation’s major institutions and elites, with nearly three in four Canadians responding that they trust leaked information more than they would trust information deliberately published by a corporation or institution. The Edelman poll finds that 43 percent of Canadians trust their government, with 57 percent saying they do...

What no one noticed yet was Trump administration immediately postponed the release of the new immigration policy executive order (until next week). Remember, part of President Trump’s expressed policy outline was an immigration rule that explicitly invalidates any reciprocity Visa process from any nation that does not accept repatriation of it’s own citizens.

    President Donald Trump is junking former President Barack Obama’s unpopular federal pro-transgender policies, according to the White House spokesman. The policy reversal will likely protect single-sex civic groups and institutions — including single-sex bathrooms — across the nation from lawsuits and will put new pressure on federal judges to preserve the central role of biology in defining whether a person is male or female.

Her people were free citizens of the republic, not subjects of a single ruler.

The road delivers inspiring views of imposing Hood Mountain, its craggy face standing sentinel over a historic route from Santa Rosa to Sonoma that carried stagecoaches and trains before the automobile took over. But today, the two-lane highway is crowded with traffic generated by commuters, residential and commercial development, sightseers and visitors headed to wineries and tasting rooms.

    While modern technology ensures safety standards are maintained at the 80,000 dams across the US, extreme weather and maintenance issues have resulted in some serious dam failures over the past four decades. On Sunday, an urgent evacuation order was issued for 200,000 people living in northern California amid fears of an imminent collapse of the nearby Oroville Dam spillway. Oroville, America’s tallest dam, remains intact but the emergency spillway, which helps prevent water from overflowing when levels are high, is eroding. Heavy rainfall has filled the dam to the verge of overflow, posing a huge potential risk to downstream communities....

    Federal and state officials have a lot to answer for in the wake of the Oroville Dam fiasco. They decided in 2005 to ignore warnings that the massive earthen spillway adjacent to the dam itself could erode during heavy winter rains — which it has done — and cause a calamity, which it very nearly did this week and could yet do by the end of this winter. No less to blame are the water agencies, including the powerful Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which argued that paying for the upgrades a decade ago was unnecessary. The 180,000 people...

The story is largely based on the work of two Oxford academics, Carl Frey and Michael Osborne, who have been studying the likelihood of various jobs being automated. What they found is that some of the jobs which are ideal for automation are government jobs: Government clerks who do predictable, rule-based, often mechanical work also are in danger of displacement by machines.

    History repeats. Many people will remember what happened in Wisconsin in 2011 when control of the state legislature flipped from Democrat control to Republican control and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker began initiating a series of state budget reforms.

    …”There are trillions of dollars at stake”… In addition to the content, pay close attention to the timing of policy delivery and the sequencing within the policy delivery. With the outline of the visa suspension as lead-in toward a security policy, President Trump is also now entering economic policy phase 2. It is all connected.

    What a whirlwind it’s been! The Washington establishment — let alone the world — has never seen anything like President Donald Trump. Perhaps as stunning as his election victory is the pace with which he’s motored through his “to do” list in just his first full week in office. On Friday he sent shockwaves around the world when he signed an executive order to indefinitely suspend admissions for Syrian refugees and drastically reduce the flow of other refugees into the United States by instituting what he’s termed “extreme vetting.” As CNN reported, The order bars all persons from certain terror-prone...

    Very busy day. Remember the political ideology exposed within the M-DSPD investigation, and the sunlight avoided by the MSM? Factual information, sworn affidavits etc., knowledge is leverage. Changes in approach are ideologically connected.
