Letter: Herger votes to ship our water south

Agriculture - California, CA Congress Wally Herger

Chico Enterprise-Record

Posted:   03/10/2012 12:54:30 AM PST

Rep. Wally Herger ignored the interests of his constituency to cast a party line vote on the San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act.

The legislation authored by San Joaquin Valley Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Tulare, passed the House last week and seeks to guarantee water for agricultural irrigator Westlands Water District, which under current water law holds secondary water rights.

This law will squeeze more water out of Herger’s district and ship it south to Kern County. Herger has decided not to run for re-election.

Rebuttal to Congressman Wally Herger

Agenda 21 & Sustainable, CA Congress Wally Herger, Op-ed

Written Jan. 29, 2012

 Wally Herger is quite mistaken in his belief that the United Nations (UN) and their Agenda 21 is not happening in the USA, because he says, “A 21 is not legally binding and it would require submission to the U.S. Senate for ratification by the President. This has not occurred. Again, ‘Agenda21’ is not legally binding on the United States.” This is true, but never the less, Agenda 21 is being supported by Christopher Dodd, Joseph Lieberman, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and many politicians in our Congress and even the President and most all of the other Presidents.

In 1992, at their Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, the United Nations and their accredited NGO-Stakeholders, especially the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, passed four “Treaties.” These “Treaties” all work together to change our Freedoms, the landscape, economy, society, culture and corrupt it by using the environment and Sustainable Development for the world, and it does not matter whether this was voted upon by our government (because our government is part of this consciousness), even though we do not have to do with these “Treaties” or the UN requirements, they are being put upon us by the NGO-Stakeholders.

All the following treaties have the same goal: to take private property, water, stop humans from destroying the earth and things that are natural, to depopulate by 90%, and to Create Sustainable Development Everywhere!

#1. “The Biodiversity Treaty,” that they already started in 1972 when the United Nations put their name on twenty of our National Parks as “World Heritage” sites with the help of the National Park Service, which is an NGO, and also created in America, forty Biosphere Reserves in 1978. This treaty is about one thousand pages long and names all the Unsustainable things that need to be gotten rid of, such as: Dams, logging, mining, roads, grazing, all domesticated animals, ranching and farming, CO2, (which the plants and trees need to thrive). They have listed several pages.

#2. Agenda 21, is 40 chapters of things that need to be made sustainable. Transition Towns using “Peak Oil and Climate Change” as their goal, have been established by NGO-Stakeholders to carry out this “Soft Treaty,” called, “Local Agenda 21.”

This is from an article by William Jasper: “The UN’s Agenda 21 is definitely comprehensive and global—breathtakingly so. Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet’s oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, sea beds coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra and mountains. It even has a whole section on regulating and ‘protecting’ the atmosphere. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production and consumption—in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.”

#3. “The Wildlands Project,” this has been envisioned by all the Environmental clubs-groups, (or NGO-Stakeholders) forever. It removes 55% of our land for the flora, fauna, wetlands, rivers, streams which they consider as “PERSONS.” Why do you think Craig Tucker-NGO-Stakeholder wants our dams removed against our will? Why do you think Felice Pace-NGO-Stakeholder, wants logging and mining stopped? They want to make a Wilderness out of Siskiyou County by using the Endangered Species Act and the Environmental Protection Agency; Law Suits, Grants from our own Congress, and going to D.C. to speak to the Congress using their warm and fuzzy language. They always get what they want!

The UN now has the “Rights of Mother Earth;” a Constitution called, “The Constitution for the Federation of the Earth,” as well as many other covenants, treaties, regulations, laws which adversely effect our “Five Freedoms,” our whole way of life and of course our own Constitution!

#4.  “The NGO Alternative Treaty,” is 46 Chapters of giving the NGOs authority to get all of this done. It does not matter if these Treaties were not accepted by our government or by “We the People.”  These treaties have been put upon us with the help of our own government and NGO-Stakeholders, such as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, Global Exchange, Global Commons, Transition Towns and the plans for a “New World Order.” They have conned the mayors of many cities to join, by using warm and fuzzy words like: sustainable, clean, save for future generations, partner-ship, improvement, consideration of the environment and people, (even though they want to get rid of 5 billion of us). There are many more sayings they use to convince they are preserving our way of life. They talk out of both sides of their mouth.

In 1993, B. Clinton supported what the UN did in 1992, by Executive Order12852, created the Presidents Council for Sustainable Development  where the Department of Interior is instructed to fund this 25 member Council which: “shall coordinate with and report to such officials of the executive branch as the President or the Director of the White House Office on Environmental policy shall from time to time determine. The Council shall advise the President on matters involving sustainable development. ‘Sustainable Development’ is broadly defined as economic growth that will benefit present and future generations without affecting the resources or biological systems of the planet. The Council shall develop and recommend to the President a national sustainable development action strategy that will foster economic vitality. And the Chairperson or Chair persons may, from time to time, invite experts to submit information to the Council and may form subcommittees of the Council to review and report to the Council on the development of national and local sustainable development plans.”

Obama did the similar thing with his E. O. 13575 Sustainable Rural Counties. This is like E.O. 12852 in that it also has 25 members as well as has NGOs and the Presidents Cabinet for Sustainable Development. An article said: “Within the twenty-five designated members of the council are some curious ties to Agenda 21 and the structure being built to implement it, even George Soros in involved, as is our economy. Both of the E.O.’s are connected with Agenda 21. We voted just shy of 80% to save the dams and none of the Departments of Interior are  listening!

You see, this has been planned by the Power Elite, the ones who have millions and billions of dollars and have caused poverty by the impositions they have put upon us by the manipulation of our economy, by the control of our financial systems, of which is the Federal Reserve Board, they created, and all are associated with the UN’s International Monetary Fund, which we have now bailed out two times, the World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements.

All of this has been going on right in front of our eyes. Are we blind and deaf as well?!

Most Sincerely,

Nita Still

Montague, California

Long-time House member will give up his seat to focus on his family

By TIM HEARDEN

Capital Press

January 12, 2012

CHICO, Calif. — U.S. Rep. Wally Herger, a walnut and plum farmer who is the highest-ranking Western Republican on the powerful Ways and Means Committee, will retire after more than a quarter-century in Congress.

Herger, who’s perhaps best known in agricultural circles for legislation benefiting timber counties, told a gathering here Jan. 10 that it was time to focus on his family and grandchildren “before they grow up.”

“I have been blessed with the privilege of serving my community, district, state and country for 35 years and being part of some of the most important events in our nation’s history,” Herger, 66, said in prepared remarks. “That privilege came with many sacrifices, the foremost of which was all the time spent away from my family and my home here in Northern California.”

His announcement set the region’s political wheels in motion. Rice grower and state Sen. Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale, will run for the seat with Herger’s blessing. Herger supported LaMalfa in the Senate primary in 2010 because the two share an agricultural background.

Assemblyman Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber, announced late Jan. 10 he won’t seek re-election but will instead run for the Senate if LaMalfa is elected to Congress.

A Sutter County native who grew up on his family’s cattle ranch in Rio Oso, Calif., Herger ran his family’s small gas company before being elected to a local school board and later to the state Assembly. He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1986.

While there, he teamed with U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., to craft the Quincy Library Group legislation in the late 1990s that opened the door for managed timber harvests in three national forests in northeastern California. Though the project was slowed by litigation, Herger said the bill was his greatest achievement.

He also championed the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000, which repays counties for cutbacks in timber harvest receipts.

As a past ranking member of the House subcommittee on trade, Herger prodded federal officials to take bolder steps to expand U.S. beef trade with Japan and pushed for ratification of the trade deals with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

Last year, Herger co-sponsored legislation that would do away with the $5 billion annual subsidy that provides a tax credit of 45 cents a gallon to oil refiners who mix gasoline with ethanol, which is mainly made from corn. The bill would also repeal a 54-cent-a-gallon tariff on imported ethanol.

The tax credit expired Dec. 31 without being renewed by Congress.

LaMalfa has been a vocal advocate for Siskiyou County ranchers in their dispute with the state Department of Fish and Game over required permits for irrigation. He joins two Republicans and a Democrat who were already seeking Herger’s seat.

Report: Rep. Herger to retire from Congress

Capital Press

January 10, 2012

CHICO, Calif. — U.S. Rep. Wally Herger will announce today that he’s retiring after serving more than a quarter-century in Congress, a local newspaper is reporting.

State Sen. Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale, will run for his seat, according to the Redding Record Searchlight.

Both are rice farmers in California’s Sacramento Valley. Herger supported LaMalfa in the Senate primary in 2010 because of his agricultural background, according to the newspaper. And both have fought for ag in their respective offices.

Herger, R-Chico, last year cosponsored legislation that would do away with a tax credit that provides 45 cents a gallon to oil refiners which mix gasoline with ethanol. Ranchers have said the subsidy amounts to $5 billion a year, contributes to their high input costs.

LaMalfa, a former state assemblyman, has advocated vociferously for Siskiyou County landowners in their dispute with the California Department of Fish and Game over required permits for irrigation.

Two other Republicans and a Democrat had announced they were running against Herger, who first took office in 1987.

Nielsen Endorses Doug LaMalfa for House of Representatives

Assemblyman/Senator Jim Nielsen, CA Congress Wally Herger, CA Sen Doug LaMalfa, Politicians & agencies


Declares intention to seek State Senate seat – forgoes reelection to Assembly

 

(Redding, CA)  Assemblyman Jim Nielsen (R – Gerber) today announced his endorsement and strong support for State Senator Doug LaMalfa of Richvale to succeed Congressman Wally Herger in the United States House of Representatives.  Herger announced his retirement from the House of Representatives Tuesday morning in Chico.

Nielsen also expressed his intention to seek election to the State Senate when LaMalfa is elected to the House of Representatives. LaMalfa announced his endorsement of Assemblyman Nielsen to succeed him in the State Senate.

“Doug LaMalfa is an extraordinary representative for the people of the Northstate and will take to Washington his experience as a family farmer and businessman, as an effective advocate for taxpayers and small businesses and for our conservative values.  I am proud to endorse Senator Doug LaMalfa for the US House of Representatives and will work tirelessly for his election,” said Nielsen.

If Senator Doug LaMalfa is successfully elected to the House of Representatives, the governor would be required to call a special election to fill the unexpired term to which LaMalfa was elected in 2010.

“I’m honored to have Senator LaMalfa’s endorsement to succeed him in representing northern California in the State Senate. Continuing the work we have done together for our constituents is extremely important to both of us.  Working closely with Senator LaMalfa, we have fought effectively for taxpayers and farmers, for our veterans and for our water, and against the burdens of an over-reaching state government.  I look forward to carrying on those efforts in the State Senate,” stated Nielsen.

“I have also decided not to seek reelection to the State Assembly because of the enormous expense to taxpayers that yet another special election to fill my seat would require,” concluded Nielsen.

A leading voice for California farmers and agriculture, Nielsen was raised on a small farm and graduated from Fresno State with a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business. After college, Jim Nielsen first worked as a ranch foreman; then founded a company that utilized rice hulls and rice straw for fuel; and operated his family’s cattle ranch.

Response to Herger

By Gary Wright, president, Klamath Water Users Association

Siskiyou Daily News

Letter to the Editor

December 14, 2011

Tulelake, Calif. — In his recent opinion piece, “Where I stand on the Klamath dams,” Congressman Wally Herger demonstrates he understands that the Klamath agreements are not just about dams.

Our association represents irrigation and drainage districts in the Klamath Reclamation Project. Fifteen districts, representing 95 percent of the acres irrigated from the Klamath River/Lake system, support the Klamath settlements.

Congressman Herger has been a fierce and tireless advocate of agriculture during his tenure in Congress. He saw what happened in 2001 as farm and ranch families in the Klamath Project, many of them his constituents, were denied water. He has been witness to over a decade of political and legal battles between tribes, environmentalists, fishermen and Klamath Project farmers.

Though elements of the agreements – if examined alone – can cause concern to anyone, Mr. Herger has been statesman-like by analyzing all the issues, and understanding the complexities of the problems. He knows that the irrigators, who have been at the tip of the spear, have worked for many years to develop a process that will lead to stability and cost taxpayers less than continued funding for disasters that impact those who are dependent on the Klamath River including tribes, fishermen, farmers and their communities.

Congressman Wally Herger finally speaks on Klamath dams issue

CA Congress Wally Herger, Klamath River & Dams

My View of the Klamath Dams Controversy

By Congressman Wally Herger

I have always been – and continue to be – a fervent supporter of dams. I believe we need more dams, not fewer. They are invaluable because of their many benefits, including as a source of abundant and cheap electricity, protection from flooding, and recreational opportunities (including the economic benefits they create) for local communities. Unfortunately, decades of increasing environmental regulation have created skyrocketing costs and potential liabilities for existing dam owners. It’s a problem we are seeing play out across the West and indeed right here in our own backyard as four dams on the Klamath River are currently being considered for removal because the environmental costs and risks of continued operation have become so high. The debate over these four Klamath River dams has become a big issue in our area. Constituents I have known and worked with for many years are sharply divided on it.

Farmers in Tulelake in Siskiyou County have been fighting regulatory battles like these for years. Indeed, in 2001 their area was ground zero for a national battle over the inflexible Endangered Species Act (ESA), as farmers there had all of their irrigation water abruptly shut off in a decision that was later determined to be not justified by science. It is these same farmers who have been working to take the best advantage of a settlement agreement that they fervently hope will provide them the regulatory certainty they need to survive. They are hardly cheerleaders for dam removal. But they have concluded that giving up certain dams that create hydropower but do not store agricultural water is a trade-off they are willing to make in exchange for what they hope will stop the endless regulatory and court battles over their water supplies. If I were in their position, I would be advocating for the same settlement agreement to have a more secure economic future.

There is a wider community sentiment that strongly opposes dam removal. This was reflected in a lopsided but legally nonbinding referendum. This emotionally charged issue is further complicated by the fact that, at its core, dam removal in this case involves a private property right. PacifiCorp, the owner of the dams, has reluctantly made a tentative business decision to remove their dams. They indicated to me that they did not reach this decision lightly. But, to be blunt, the company had a regulatory gun pointed at its head.

It is not that the dams are structurally deficient; the problem is that they cannot meet current state and federal laws and regulations. As PacifiCorp moved through the relicensing process, they realized they would be required to spend hundreds of millions of dollars for fish ladders and other mitigation, and yet it was still unclear whether they would receive a vital permit required under the Clean Water Act. Faced with this prospect, PacifiCorp decided to cut its losses. (The negotiated settlement allows them to cap their costs at $200 million. Seeking to relicense the dams would far more than double that cost which, under current law, would be passed on to ratepayers.)

That said, dam removal is by no means a “done deal.” The “Agreement in Principle” requires a $250 million contribution from the State of California. Given the acute fiscal crisis facing California, such funding is by no means assured.

Furthermore, the Klamath River Expert Panel (a scientific “peer review” panel convened by the Department of Interior) recently concluded that current studies are deficient in addressing a host of subjects. A June story in the Los Angeles Times was headlined: “Scientists find holes in Klamath River dam removal plan.” The opening sentence bluntly noted, “A $1.4-billion project to remove four hydroelectric dams and restore habitat to return Chinook salmon to the upper reaches of the Klamath River amounts to an experiment with no guarantee of success, an independent science review has concluded.”

Bear in mind that the Department of Interior asked for this review. I contacted Interior Secretary Salazar in late August and asked him to respond to the Expert Panel’s scathing criticisms, but I have still received no reply. Before the Secretary renders a decision on dam removal, and before the Congress is asked to expend roughly a billion dollars to implement a “restoration” program, it might be a good idea to make sure that the plan will not be a colossal failure.

If the science does not justify the proposal to remove the dams, or if the cost/benefit ratio is so out-of-kilter that it does not pass the straight face test, then PacifiCorp should be owed the opportunity to seek a new license that contains reasonable and affordable conditions. But the bottom line is we must continue working to reform the environmental laws that are making life so difficult and costly for farmers and energy producers alike.
