Salmon will only get more water if die-off starts

Air, Climate & Weather, Salmon and fish, Water, Resources & Quality

PNP comment: The Upper Klamath Lake is full to the brim.  There is enough water to ramp the flows back up as a preventive measure. Guess the powers that be, want the salmon to die in the Klamath River!

Also on the Salmon River, the government agency, Tribes and Greenies were asked to abort their annual fish count, last week, where they dive into the holes to count the fish. It is harassment and sends the salmon out of the cooler holes into the warmer slow water. The Salmon River is extremely low due to the lack of snowpack and has nothing to do with the Klamath River, except that it flows into the Klamath. — Editor Liz Bowen

 

Washington Times.com

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) – A federal agency said Wednesday it will release extra water into Northern California’s Klamath and Trinity rivers once salmon start dying from drought-related disease, but not before.

U.S. Bureau of Reclamation spokesman Louis Moore said from Sacramento, California, that the decision came under terms of a 2012 emergency water plan, and after consulting with tribes, irrigators and other agencies.

“When you look at the need and demand for water, it’s for every requirement out there, whether it is drinking water, species, power, agriculture or flow in the rivers,” Moore said. “The best use of that water was part of that discussion. How can we use this water and still meet all the needs that are there.”

Fisheries biologist Joshua Strange of Stillwater Sciences said that will be too late. Strange submitted a memo to the Klamath Fish Health Advisory Team saying low flows this year could lead to a salmon kill like the one in 2002, when tens of thousands of adult salmon died.

The major threat is a parasite known as Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, which attacks fish in stagnant water.

He says the idea of raising flows down the rivers is not to cool the water temperature, or make it easier for the fish to swim, but to make it harder for the tiny parasites, which swim with hair-like filamets along their bodies, to attack fish.

“Everything we know about Ich is that an ounce of prevention is worth 20 pounds of emergency action,” Strange said. “If you can keep it from starting, your chances are way, way better. It builds up momentum very quickly.”

After salmon were reported dying last week in the Salmon River, a tributary of the Klamath, salmon advocates called on the bureau to put more water down the Klamath and Trinity rivers to protect salmon.

California battle over concealed-weapon rights could be headed for Supreme Court

2nd Amendment rights, Federal gov & land grabs, Lawsuits

The Supreme Court has turned aside all Second Amendment challenges since a pair of landmark rulings in 2008 and 2009 confirmed the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms.

But some believe a California case could make the high court return to the controversial area and determine whether gun ownership rights extend beyond the corners of one’s home.

“If this goes to the Supreme Court, I’ll probably be right there on the doorsteps fighting and advocating,” Michelle Laxson proudly said. She and a handful of other San Diego County residents joined together in a lawsuit challenging how stingy their sheriff was in issuing permits to carry concealed weapons.

“The attitude of the sheriff’s department was very cold,” Laxson recalled to Fox News. “And a kind of like chip on their shoulder regarding gun rights and concealed weapons and basically said, ‘Ha! You really think you’re going to come through and get a [permit]? This little precious girl?’ You know, in her dress and her boots and her lipstick. They looked me and it was almost like a laughingstock. Like a joke.”

In February, a divided three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled in Laxson’s favor concluding that as responsible citizens she and the other plaintiffs have the right to carry a concealed weapon for self-protection.

The San Diego Sheriff’s Department initially said it would follow the court’s ruling and not appeal. But California Attorney General Kamala Harris intervened and is asking the Ninth Circuit to rehear the case. The legal pathway likely ends with a petition to the Supreme Court.

“Unfortunately, Heller and McDonald left more questions unanswered then they answered,” Laxson’s attorney Chuck Michel said about the two major high court rulings from a few years ago. “Inevitably it’s going to go back — it has to go back to the Supreme Court to settle some issues.”

In 37 “shall issue” states, applicants for permits to carry concealed weapons (CCW) must pass basic requirements for approval such as proof of residency and a clean background check.

Nine “may issue” states give local officials much more latitude in determining who gets permits. In California, an applicant must also demonstrate “good cause” why he or she should receive a permit. Four other states (Alaska, Arizona, Wyoming and Vermont) have no permitting requirements.

Laxson, born and raised in rural San Diego County, has been around guns all her life. “I met every other qualification. I’ve met the standard for all of the safety requirements. I’ve gone through every course. I’m an avid shooter and very responsible in what I do,” Laxson explained. “I was heartbroken that my own safety wasn’t [good] cause to protect myself.”

In striking down the California system, the court ruled that “a law that destroys (rather than merely burdens) a right central to the Second Amendment must be struck down.” It determined that the state must allow citizens the ability to carry firearms outside the home for self-defense.

Judge Sidney Thomas, considered in 2010 by President Obama for a seat on the Supreme Court, issued a strongly worded dissent saying his colleagues went too far. “Carrying concealed weapons in public by definition does not inherently involve defense of hearth and home, so the core of the Second Amendment is not implicated.”

Laxson’s case is still pending before the Ninth Circuit as Harris has asked for a larger panel of judges to rehear arguments. A decision from the court on whether that happens hasn’t been announced.

Meanwhile, other California counties are following the February decision and have relaxed their CCW permitting process. Orange County, for example, has seen a rush of filers. More than 6,000 applications have been made with the sheriff’s department in the last five months.

New EPA Land Grab, Complete Control Over All Private Land In America

Clean Water ACT - EPA

New EPA Land Grab, Complete Control Over All Private Land In America

(by Rick Wells, GOP The Daily Dose) –
Red Flag News
The EPA is in the process, right this very minute, of seizing control over all private land in the United States. They are following the United Nations blueprint, their minion Gina McCarthy is implementing it, and B. Hussein Obama is facilitating it.
Anywhere in America where it rains or where water collects or through which water moves will now, according to this new rule change they are implementing, be under their control. Not because Congress or the people give them that authority or jurisdiction, but simply because they are seizing the power. It is just another component of the illegitimate tyranny which is oppressing the American people.
On Tuesday the agency which operates as the misnamed Environmental Protection Agency unveiled their proposed change to the Clean Water Act, which would extend their regulatory control to temporary wetlands and waterways.
This definition consists of any water, including seasonal ponds, streams, runoff and collection areas and irrigation water. It could include runoff from watering your lawn, or puddles on your own property. They will control the presence of and can prohibit through regulation, your right to the water and your actions regarding water upon your own land. The opportunities for their abuse would be limitless.
Louisiana Senator David Vitter, the ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, offered an understated precautionary objection stating, “The … rule may be one of the most significant private property grabs in U.S. history.”
The EPA proposal would extend their authority to include “pollution regulations” to “intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands” – which are created temporarily during wet seasons or following rainfall.
Recognize this for what it is America; The EPA is giving themselves legal jurisdiction to replace our rights with their permissions anywhere it rains or water exists.
They are expanding the same kind of California fish-based drought or Nevada tortoise land restrictions or Oregon spotted owl tyranny to every square inch of the United States.
The EPA is asserting that all ground water, whether temporary or not and regardless of size is part of the “waters of the United States.”
Their position is in contradiction to the Supreme Court rulings in 2001 and 2006, restricting the EPA to flowing and sizeable, “relatively” permanent bodies of water such as “oceans, rivers, streams and lakes.” Of course, progressives just keep trying until they get what they want, and they never have enough.
The proposed rule change is now in a 90 day comment period during which they will assess just how much they can get away with, based upon public outcry and pushback.

Lawsuit Against The Obama Admin Could Leave The EPA In Shambles

Posted by ilona trommler
B. CHRISTOPHER AGEE

While the issue of lost or destroyed email correspondences has been a common theme in the ongoing congressional investigation of anti-conservative biases within the IRS, one conservative talk show host is using the concept as the grounds for a suit against the Environmental Protection Agency.
Reports this week indicate that Mark Levin, acting through the Landmark Legal Foundation, recently sought a judicial sanction against the agency regarding allegations that it destroyed vital records regarding the implementation of new federal regulations.
A Washington Post article published late last year confirms that a number of these EPA mandates were purposely held back until the 2012 presidential election had passed in an ostensible effort to protect the Democrat Party from backlash from disillusioned voters. Compounding that potential scandal, Levin said, is his foundation’s claim that the EPA violated federal law by allowing emails and phone records about the systematic regulatory delays to be destroyed.
In documents presented to Judge Royce Lamberth, Landmark Legal Foundation asserts that the agency “undertook no effort to secure potentially responsive emails from the administrator’s personal email account, even though EPA states in its own litigation hold memorandum that every email on a personal email account should be preserved even if it is forwarded to another account.”
Levin took the opportunity to release his own statement on the matter, in which he called the EPA a “toxic waste dump for lawlessness and disdain for the Constitution.”
Though an agency source indicated the EPA is “committed to transparency” and strives to comply with federal law, the conservative host and constitutional attorney sees it differently.
“When any federal agency receives a [Freedom of Information Act] request, the statute says it must preserve every significant repository of records, both paper and electronic, that may contain materials that could be responsive of that request,” he asserted.
Levin concluded that EPA employees on every level “think they’re above the law, that no one has the right to question what or how they do their jobs.”
Through this suit, Levin apparently wants to send a clear message to the EPA and the Obama administration.
“The laws apply to everyone,” he concluded, “even federal bureaucrats.”

Speaker Boehner Urges House to Defend the Constitution

Federal gov & land grabs

PNP comment: Boy what a shock. It is good to hear him take this stand. — Editor Liz Bowen

Watch on YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJS2Z2YL-VE&feature=youtu.be&Source=GovD

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today made the following floor remarks in support of H. Res. 676, a resolution which authorizes the House to enter into litigation in opposition to President Obama’s attempts to make his own laws, actions that challenge the constitutional separation of powers:
“Let me thank my colleague for yielding, and I also want thank the whole House for its work to address the people’s concerns about jobs and our economy. All told, we have sent the Senate now more than 40 jobs bills, almost all of them in a bipartisan way. From the first day of this Congress, I’ve said our focus would be on jobs, and it has been.
“But also on that first day, you may recall that I addressed the House about the importance of our oath of office. I noted that it’s the same oath we all take; it makes no mention of party, makes no mention of faction, or agenda. The oath only refers to the Constitution – and our obligation to defend it. I said that with moments like this in mind. I said that knowing there would be times when we would have to do things we didn’t come here to do, we didn’t plan to do, things that require us to consider interests greater than our own interests.
“I have to think this is why, on several occasions, members of the minority party have taken a similar step. In 2011, some of them filed litigation against the vice president. They took similar steps in 2006, 2002, 2001, and so forth.
“Because this isn’t about Republicans and Democrats. It is about defending the Constitution that we swore an oath to uphold, and acting decisively when it may be compromised.
“No member of this body needs to be reminded of what the Constitution states about the president’s obligation to faithfully execute the laws of our nation. No member needs to be reminded of the bonds of trust that have been frayed, of the damage that’s already been done to our economy and to our people. Are you willing to let any president choose what laws to execute and what laws to change? Are you willing to let anyone tear apart what our Founders have built?
“Think not only about the specifics of the oath you took, but think about how you took it: as one body, standing together. That is all I am asking you to do today: to act as one institution, to defend the Constitution on behalf of the people we serve.”

Liz Bowen writes letter to Congressman Doug LaMalfa

Doug LaMalfa Congressman CA, Federal gov & land grabs

 

Honorable Congressman Doug LaMalfa
1st District of California
506 Cannon House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515

July 19, 2014

Dear Honorable Congressman Doug LaMalfa:

I am a constituent in your District and am concerned about the continual reduction of Post Offices and service hours. I live in a rural area and our Post Offices are a lifeline for communication.

The U.S. Postal Service has decided to remove our Callahan Post Master and reduce our service open-window hours from 8 to just 4 per day. This is unacceptable as a rural Post Master is an integral part of our community in our little town. The school bus lets off children across the street and if there is bad weather or problems with parents showing up to pick up the children, our wonderful Post Master facilitates any needs and provides a safe haven.

If the POST Plan goes through, our Callahan Post Office will become a satellite office for the Etna Post Office about 12 miles away. I have no complaints with the Etna P.O. or its Post Master, but reiterate that it is important to our community to have our own Post Office as stated in the Constitution.

I do not believe the USPS will save sufficient funds to be worth the cost of losing a Post Master and construction costs to alter another part of the old building that will house the new satellite Post Office area. Once again, costs will exceed any savings and our community will lose our Post Master.

I realize you are not on the Congressional committee that decides these matters, but I do ask for anything you can do to help us save our Callahan Post Office and Callahan Post Master.

Thank you, for all your time and your service to “we the people” in your district. I know you have much concern for our welfare and do so very much appreciate it.

May God bless you during this changing time of our country and government.

Sincerely,

Liz Bowen
P.O. Box 1527

Fires update from Klamath National Forest

FIRES, Forestry & USFS

 

Yreka, CA- As of 7 pm this evening, a number of new lightning-caused fires have been reported throughout Siskiyou County. The largest of the new fires are the Badger Fire, Beaver Fire, Cleghorn Fire, Shackleford Fire and the Leef Fire. Beaver and Cleghorn are located on the Happy Camp/Oak Knoll Ranger District north of the Oak Knoll Work Station on Highway 96. The Badger Fire, also located on the Happy Camp/Oak Knoll Ranger District, is southeast of the Oak Knoll Work Station on Highway 96. These three fires are estimated to be between 12 and 50 acres in size. The Shackleford Fire, located on the Salmon/Scott Ranger District, west of Fort Jones, is burning up Shackleford Creek towards the Marble Mountain Wilderness.

The Leef Fire, also located on the Salmon/Scott Ranger District, north of Carter Meadows has grown to 15 acres. Firefighters are currently staffing that fire and have made good progress towards containment. The Leef Fire is visible from the Pacific Crest Trail. At this time the PCT is not closed, however hikers can avoid the area by taking an alternate route. PCT closure information is available by calling (888) PC-Trail or at www.PCTA.org.

Forest Service resources are responding to the fires and lookouts are still staffed and calling in new fires as they appear.

Due to the extreme drought conditions throughout the area, fuels are very receptive to fires started by lightning. Even with some areas getting a good wetting rain, the fuels dry out quickly and a small smoldering fire can quickly grow to a major fire. Lightning is expected throughout the rest of this week.

Rep. LaMalfa Votes to Improve Access, Choice, and Accountability at the VA

Doug LaMalfa Congressman CA, Veterans & soldiers

 

Washington, DC – Representative Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) voted today in favor of H.R. 3230, a measure to improve access to and quality of care by increasing accountability within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and providing veterans access to private health care options. The bill comes as a response to growing scandals at the VA regarding both healthcare for veterans and systematic denial of benefits.

“The bureaucratic failures plaguing the VA are simply unconscionable, particularly in light of so-called performance bonuses given to senior staff. Destroyed records, second-rate care, and silenced whistleblowers are an insult to veterans who have sacrificed tremendously to keep our country safe,” said LaMalfa. “The measure we passed today represents a bipartisan compromise to begin the process of reforming the VA. The bill improves access to care by giving veterans the option of private care, especially in cases where veterans have trouble accessing care due to lengthy wait times or those who live far from VA facilities. The bill also restores accountability by ensuring that when misconduct or poor performance occurs at the VA, those responsible are fired – not put on paid vacation.”

H.R. 3230, which passed on a 420-5 vote, includes the following components:
• Requires the VA to offer authorization to receive non-VA care to any veteran enrolled in the VA health care system as of August 1, 2014.
• Allows veterans to seek private care if they are unable to secure an appointment at a VA medical facility within 30 days, or they live more than 40 miles from the nearest VA medical facility. Also allows a veteran to seek private care if specialty care is not available within 20 miles of their residence.
• Authorizes up to $4,534,000 in funding for the expansion of a community based outpatient clinic in Chico, CA.
• Authorizes up to $8,154,000 in funding for the expansion of a community based outpatient clinic in Redding, CA.
• Authorizes the VA to fire or demote Senior Executive Service (SES) employees for poor performance or misconduct.
• Requires public college to provide in-state tuition to veterans and eligible dependents in order for the school to remain eligible to receive G.I. Bill education payments.

“These common sense and responsible reforms take a step a step forward in building a system that honors, not punishes, our veterans,” continued LaMalfa.

Representative LaMalfa and his office have been actively pushing for reforms and action on Veterans affairs since shortly after being sworn in. Investigations conducted by the office have resulted in an inquiry into the Oakland VA office by the Inspector General, LaMalfa’s inclusion on the Veterans Affairs Committee to question Senior VA officials, and whistleblower testimony about thousands of mishandled VA claims in Oakland.
