Bald Eagle Numbers Decline to Toxins, Fukushima? Dec. 29, 2013

We can no longer remain in denial.
Fukushima radiation is threatening all of US and the world.
We must contact our local, state, and federal officials and kickstart action to protect all of US, end nuclear power and weapons, and live in peace and sustainable environmental practices for US and our kids. The future generations are watching US to see if we can meet this challenge.

"I live close to Coeur d"Alene Lake, Idaho and this is a good time to watch bald eagles pick up dead Kokanee fish. Quite a sight as the article listed below states that 129 eagles are in the area.

They go on to say the eagles are increasing in numbers, blah blah.
In a tiny paragraph at the bottom of the page it says; This time last year there were 260 eagles. A reduction of 50%. I tried to find through the wildlife site the stats. on eagle populations and it does not exist.

The Idaho Dept. of Wildlife knows that the population of bald eagles is going down and has since 3-11. Now this community of biologists are all acting surprised that they got a pile of dead eagles and they don't know what to do?

This is truly a Homer Simpson moment. Makes you want to laugh and cry at the same time."

Many eagles have appeared at Bayview, Idaho.

Spokane County Drops Illegal Building Bombs and Horror Zones on Spokane County Citizens December 2013

With the nuclear horror show known as Fukushima, and Spokane County ignoring the threat of radiaiton to the good citizens of Spokane County, along comes a new horror: Spokane County servants whom we voted for and entrusted with the tasks of keeping this fine country fine country, we learn that some treacherous servants have sold out, and dumped industrial industries in beautiful, historic, rural land, and bombed a family's life and peace.

"Residents Robin and Gary Congdon moved into the farmhouse ... more than 30 years ago.  The house itself has been undisturbed for 105 years."
The Congdons were shocked in 2004 when the county rezoned the neighborhood as “light industrial”. but it was industrial building to " large mining equipment projects, hydroelectric power plants and nuclear facility manufacturing ..."
"The Landsmark Commission recommended the county deny permits for any construction that might disturb the family’s home. The county said the land fits within the comprehensive plan.
“Because it’s close to the freeway and it has a freeway on-ramp,” Robin said. “They brought sewers and water out here from the city and it’s their grand design to have this all industrial.”
However, Robin has a point: These structures are not light industrial. And with the scientifically-proven nuclear disasters of Three Mile Island, Chernobly, Fukushima, and the on-going radiation and pollution from Hanford, why are Spokane County servants approving industrial businesses that include poisoning US with nuclear disasters?

Patty and Maria Vote to Jail Americans without Trial NDAA December 20, 2013

While Americans prepare for their well-deserved holiday time with friends and family, government servants passed a "law" that permits government servants to put Americans in prison without recourse to a trial, without recourse to the Bill of Rights.

Freedom, liberty, rights to life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, these are rights that belong to all humans. For a free people to tolerate fascist laws from government servants will end one way: The servants will become masters of US and of our kids forever.

If liberty means more to you than arguing about sports or shopping, then work with others of US to restore the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution. Better now, before it's too late.

Late Thursday night, the Senate passed the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2014, in a sweeping bill now being sent to the president which reports suggest he will sign.

The bill, is infamous for its language on indefinite detention, and "disappearing" of American citizens. Once again, the bill was past via Fast-Tracking while most of the country was sidelined on the Phil Robertson issue with Duck Dynasty.

Congress members voted to not extend long-term unemployment insurance:

End the Torture and Killing of Wolves, Our American Symbol of the Wild and Free

"If you have not done so, add your voice to the comment section for the upcoming Wolf Delisting (taking them off the endangered species list) that will allow the slaughter of the last two years not only to continue but also to increase. The deadline is Dec. 17, 2013. Please go to the EarthJustice site at:
and send your message. In solidarity for the wild and the wolves."

"The call of the wild is being silenced nationwide by federal bureaucrats. We only have a short time to change their minds. Submit your comment now to keep gray wolves on the federal endangered species list.
Wolves are one of the most iconic symbols of America’s wild places. Yet, for centuries they were ruthlessly hunted, trapped, and poisoned, bringing them to the brink of extinction in the lower-48 states."

Dangers of Radiation: From Deadly Nuclear Energy to Killer Airport Body Scanners: No Safe Level of Radiation!

Ann Coulter infamously touted that a little radiation is good for people.
This deadly attitude permeates msn broadcasts, which blithely report on shopping and sports, but neglect their right and duty to help US know that right now people are being killed by radiation from nuclear power and every time they and their kids go through Michael Chertoff's fortune-making radiation body scanners and strip searches.

If we love our lives and our families, we have the right and duty to end the deadly killing industries of nuclear-focused corporations. Particularly in Washington State, and on the West Coast, we and our children are facing our own Chernobyl:

From the article:

Physicians for Social Responsibility notes:
"According to the National Academy of Sciences, there are no safe doses of radiation. Decades of research show clearly that any dose of radiation increases an individual’s risk for the development of cancer."[poster's emphasis].

“There is no safe level of radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources. Period,” said Jeff Patterson, DO, immediate past president of Physicians for Social Responsibility. “Exposure to radionuclides, such as iodine-131 and cesium-137, increases the incidence of cancer. For this reason, every effort must be taken to minimize the radionuclide content in food and water.”
“Consuming food containing radionuclides is particularly dangerous. If an individual ingests or inhales a radioactive particle, it continues to irradiate the body as long as it remains radioactive and stays in the body,”said Alan H. Lockwood, MD, a member of the Board of Physicians for Social Responsibility.

Legal Magic for Pot Stops via AlterNet

Here are "Magic" Phrases for Pot Stops

"The United States Constitution gives you rights that protect you during police encounters. It is the job of the police to find evidence of a crime. It is not your job to confess or help them. They get paid quite well, so please do not do their job for them. Your job is to do and say the right things to protect yourself and defend your rights."

Am I free to go?
I do not consent to any serches.
I want to remain silent.
I want a lawyer.

Wolves Killed by KKK Kowards, It Took 7 Masked Guys to Bring Down 1 Wolf.

Wolf Killed by kkk kowards, It Took 7 Masked Guys with Guns to Bring Down 1 Wolf. November 2013.

We take this moment to honor the wolf, who bravely fought against 7 kkk kowards.
To the wolf, we say Good Job! You were brave and showed courage!

The Great Wolf Land in the Sky Greets a Great Warrior!
As for the seven guys wearing the sheets that show they were raised to live in an ugly past, maybe if they hadn't been wearing bed sheets wrapped around their faces, they might get more oxygen to their brains, and realize that only losers kill for sport and only losers are obsessed with enacting the tired, wornout, and boring obsession with race wars. That script was written, acted out, and abandoned as unworthy of human beings.
May the Lord forgive the seven kkk kowards their cruelty.
We can call our local, state, and US governments to create a better world for US and our future.

Center for Biological Diversity

"This is one of the most disturbing and revealing images I've ever seen. Bloodthirsty, paranoid cowards posted it on Facebook this week."

Cowardly wolf killers
The Ku Klux Klan imagery is no accident. It was celebrated by other cowardly commenters on the anti-wolf website:

S.W.: "Idaho too! Them boys have room for another masked man? I'll ride."

J.G.: "Next time they go full REGALIA."

A.T.: "Redneck KKK."

This is what we're up against. These are the people who will be set free to slaughter even more wolves if the government succeeds in its plan to strip away all federal protection.

Please help the Center for Biological Diversity save wolves from this deadly paranoia, fear and hatred. 
Sadly, the xenophobia, hatred, violence and victimhood invoked by this disturbing image are common among wolf haters. The website posting the image delusionally declares that wolves are alien outsiders, threatening "real" Americans. It thrives on fear and urges violence. Its mission is to "educate and show pictures of dead wolves, coyotes & other stuff."

It's unacceptable. It has to stop.

If you're disgusted by this celebration of Klan-like imagery and hatred, please help us fight it. Help us stop the killing. 
Make a generous donation to the Wolf Defense Fund in memory of wolves killed by ignorance. In memory of the wolf in this very picture.

The Center is fighting for wolves in California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. We've gone to court for them and won in Arizona, New Mexico, Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin.

We can stop the Interior Department's plan to strip all federal protection from wolves, but we don't have much time. The final comment period ends soon, and after that the agency will rush to issue a final decision. We need to mobilize as many people as possible before the decision is made, and prepare to file a lawsuit as soon the decision is made, to get a legal injunction against the killing that will be unleashed.

Thank you for all your help and support. Please pass this email to your friends and family. We have to educate and activate as many people as possible to 
stop the killing, hatred and ignorance.

Fukushima Radiation Caused 14,000 American Deaths: More to Come. Will Northwesterners Be Sheep or Fight for a Better World for All the Kids?

New York Times Op-Ed by Dr Helen Caldicott:
Children are innately sensitive to the carcinogenic effects of radiation, fetuses even more so. Like Chernobyl, the accident at Fukushima is of global proportions. Unusual levels of radiation have been discovered in British Columbia, along the West Coast and East Coast of the United States and in Europe, and heavy contamination has been found in oceanic waters.
"Nuclear engineer Gunderson says that the Japanese will suffer one million cancer deaths from Fukushima, and that we’ll see a statistically meaningful increase in cancer on the West Coast of America and Canada from Fukushima. ...– after Japan – the most radioactive areas are the Cascades and Portland."

(NaturalNews) "In the wake of the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster it is crucial to understand the protective nature of foods in order to protect yourself and your family against radiation exposure. ... research from Hiroshima after the atomic bomb attacks ...highlighted the protective nature of fruits and vegetables in the diet against cancer."

Autumn 2013 A Windy Day in the Spokane Area

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

Foggy, rainy, with wind gusts beginning about 5 o'clock pm.
A good day to read
Washington Irving’s
                     Washington Irving (1783–1859).  

Rip Van Winkle & The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  
The Harvard Classics Shelf of Fiction.  1917.

"...there is a little valley, or rather lap of land, among high hills, which is one of the quietest places in the whole world. A small brook glides through it, with just murmur enough to lull one to repose; and the occasional whistle of a quail, or tapping of a woodpecker, is almost the only sound that ever breaks in upon the uniform tranquillity."
Autumn on the Hudson River
Jasper Francis Cropsey


If ever I should wish for a retreat,
whither I might steal from the world and its distractions, and dream quietly away the remnant of a troubled life, I know of none more promising than this little valley.

STOP the Torture of Our Wolves: The US Fish and Wildlife Service public comment period on wolf delisting is closing Oct 28, 2013.

"Delisting the wolf from Endangered Species status will not only cause more and worse slaughter of wolves, but is evidence of the complete unecological 'management' practices of the federal government and their bid to turn these practices over to the states."

Spokane Incinerator: Public Hearing October 08, 2013 5:30 pm Public Works Building 1026 W. Broadway, by the Courthouse

Incinerator Information : Ways to Stop Burning Poisons into Our Air.
To Burn or not to Burn....Yes, it is deja vu all over again!
For over twenty years Spokane has been burning trash and spewing the poisonous air out over our community.  Now that the contract binding us to this albatross is coming to a close at the end of this year, the city wants to make a deal with the county to continue turning trash into exhaust laden with mercury, lead, cadmium, dioxin, fluoride, greenhouse gas and other hazardous chemicals...all for us to inhale! Why?  Because they now own the plant and can make the profit and a utility tax to boot!  
Now is your chance to influence what happens in 2014.  Demand that your county commissioners turn away from incineration and support taking our trash to the landfill instead of the toxic ash. 
Here's how to make your voice heard:
Attend the Public Hearing:
October 8,  5:30pm
Public Works  Bldg.  Lower Level Hearings Room
1026 W. Broadway (just west of the courthouse)
Spokane, Wa




Todd Mielke     -
Shelly O' Quinn   -
Al French       -
The message:
Stop contributing to climate change and polluted air shut the burner down now!

Mayor David Condon   -
City Council:
Amber Waldref    -
Ben Stuckart        -
Mike Fagan   -   
Mike Allen       -  
Nancy McLaughlin  -

    US Fish and Wildlife Service Comment Period on Delisting Wolves: October 28, 2013.

    Would you pay $19 to kill a wolf?

    Would you pay $19 to kill a wolf?

    Dear Center Supporter,

    Breaking news: The anti-wolf zealots are losing ground.

    After weeks of intense pressure from the Center for Biological Diversity and other groups, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just admitted to excluding key wolf experts from the scientific analysis of its infamous, nationwide wolf-delisting plan. The Service has dissolved its hand-picked panel and turned over the entire review process to an independent research institute. Now the nation's top wolf scientists --once improperly disqualified for questioning the Service's proposal to delist wolves -- will be reconsidered as candidates for the review panel.

    This is a victory in our fight to keep federal protections for gray wolves -- but another battle is raging in the northern Rockies and Great Lakes. The wolf-killing season is starting, and hunters and trappers are lining up by the thousands.

    In case you missed my last email, the Center urgently needs 6,000 wolf heroes to counter 6,000 wolf killers in Montana.
    Will you help now by giving to our Wolf Defense Fund and become a hero for these beleaguered animals?

    In Montana 6,000 people just paid $19 to kill a wolf. Selling cheap $19 wolf tags to 6,000 people is an atrocity, because Montana only has 625 wolves left after last year's killing season. Not satisfied with the massacre, the state has lined up 10 times as many rifles as there are wolves to finish the job.

    I'm writing today because the Center for Biological Diversity needs help balancing the odds. We need 6,000 wolf heroes to donate to our Wolf Defense Fund to ensure that federal protections are not stripped from all wolves across the country.

    By donating, you'll help stop the killing and send Montana a powerful message that a wolf's life is worth far more than $19.

    We can't let these extermination practices spread nationwide. Wolf haters are putting up money to wipe out wolves. Wolf supporters need to do the same if we're going to stop the killing.

    That's why we're asking for 6,000 people to donate to our Wolf Defense Fund to keep wolves federally protected. Please give as generously as you can, and pass this appeal on to your friends.

    With your help, we can counter the 6,000 wolf killers with 6,000 wolf supporters.

    When it comes to wolf protection, the Center's lawyers and activists know how to get the job done. Oregon’s wolves now have more protections because of a lawsuit the Center and allies filed in 2011; last month we won a decade-long battle to improve federal protection standards for wolves in New Mexico and Arizona; and because of our work, California is on its way to placing wolves on its highly protective state endangered species list.

    With your help, we'll stop the federal government's plan to strip protection from all wolves nationwide
    . We'll secure a future for wolves in California, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and the Northeast. And we'll pressure Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and the Great Lake states to stop indiscriminate killing.

    Don't let Montana's killing spree spread. Become one of 6,000 wolf heroes and give to our Wolf Defense Fund today. With your help we can stop the mass deaths.

    For the wolves,
    Kierán Suckling
    Kierán Suckling
    Executive Director
    Center for Biological Diversity

    P.S. Because the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just extended the comment period on the proposed wolf delisting to Oct. 28, we're organizing large turnouts and street protests at all the public hearings. Your donation to the Wolf Defense Fund will pay for this work and for us to go to court to stop the killing. Please give today.

    Washington State ACA Website Down on First Day, October 01, 2013

    The government store shopping center for required purchasing of insurance
    Our government is our servant.
    We must prevent this situation. Servants do not require their employers to purchase anything.
    Especially when the servants have exempted themselves, making laws for US and not for them.
    This insurance may be negated by the government shut-down, lawsuits, and public comments.

    Whatever your opinion, We the People have a right and duty to discuss these issues with our servants.

    SEATTLE (AP) - The website for Washington state's new health exchange got off to a rough start Tuesday. Reports of people being unable to get onto the site or complete their application led officials to take the site offline shortly after it went live.

    Tracking the first day of the Affordable Care Act     
    It’s finally here — the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, launches today. By March, everyone must have health insurance or pay a penalty. Most people who currently have insurance provided by their employer won’t be affected.
    In Washington state, the insurance-exchange marketplace opened this morning as the Washington Healthplanfinder, a one-stop shopping site to help people find health insurance.

    China's Coal Burning will Billow with Coal from US, Burned in China and Drift Back to US , Friday, Sept. 27, 2013

    If you want US to have fresh clear and clean air, as a legacy for all future generations, then we must stop burning coal, and stop coal companies who want to strip our country of coal, send it to China, and let the pollution return to US via the jet stream.

    "China continues to be the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, according to the World Resources Institute. It's clear to me how: where one coal power plant stops, another begins. A thick brown air blows and for a moment the trees look like nature's very own protestors, shaking their fists at the sky (the human variety are strictly banned...)

    Coal Trains Would Block Spokane Traffic for Hours a Day. Attend Hearing on Wednesday, September 25, 5 pm at Spokane Convention Center

    Coal company trains bound to China through Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon will leave trails of coal dust, increase noise echoing in the Spokane River Valley and Hills, increase respiratory diseases, cause cancer, and tie up OUR railroad crossings for hours more per day.
    Here's a chart:

    "If fossil fuel companies succeed in shipping the volumes of fuel they have planned, they will—by sheer physical necessity—disrupt vehicle and rail traffic all along the rail route. In the first installment in this series we examined street closures in northern Idaho. In this chapter, we visit Spokane County, Washington."

    It's so important!"
    "Please come to the Spokane hearing!"
    Wednesday Sept. 25th. 5 to 8 pm

    You can wear red, as the folks in Longview, WA did, to show they say NO to coal.
