Editorial series by Pearl Rains-Hewett

Part 1:

There is a time to be silent and a time to speak

 A time to keep and a time to throw away

 There is a time for every activity

 Now is the time for many of us to speak of a War On Wild and keep our rights.

Is it your time?

We are American citizens, we are private property owners, we are the stewards of our pristine forest land, it is our heritage, it is who we are and what we do, it is our way of life, it is our source of employment and income, it provides our shelter, the roof over our heads, food on our tables and heat from our hearth, indeed it has been  the  lot of our lives for many generations of local  families.

So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live

There is still time to speak and keep

What has a War on Wild got to with the loss of Freedom? Free Enterprise, Life? Liberty? Pursuit of Happiness?

Whatever is has already been,  and what will be has been before

What has a War on Wild got to with  a predictable future of more wild economic disasters, including unemployment? poverty? hunger, food banks, food stamps? and more government Oppression? and the really big one more WILD endangered species and more designated endangered species critical habitat?

There is still time to speak and keep

The Economic sanctions imposed by the endangered wild spotted owl

The Economic sanctions imposed by more wild endangered species and more critical habitat on Private and Public forest land?

Whatever is has already been,  and what will be has been before

Politics of sanctions  Economic sanctions are used as an alternative weapon instead of going to war to achieve desired outcomes

They can be used as a coercive measure for achieving particular policy goals

They may also be imposed for a variety of political and social issues Economic sanctions can be used for achieving domestic political gain.

The Fish and Wildlife Service Announced it’s revised recovery plan for the northern spotted owl, a northwestern U.S. species listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, in the Federal Register of Friday, July 1, 2011.

The spotted owl was federally listed as a threatened species more than twenty years ago (June 26, 1990, 55 FR 26114).  The current range of the spotted owl extends from southwest British Columbia through the Cascade Mountains, coastal ranges, and intervening forested lands in Washington, Oregon, and California, as far south as Marin County.

There is a time to be silent and a time to speak

A time to keep and a time to throw away

Now is the time for many of us to speak of a WOW and keep our rights.

Is it your time?

What do workers gain from their toil? When the Federal Government uses WILD to prohibit them the freedom to toil on their own land?

Why would anyone use the word “War” against the federal governments “Wild” Agendas that historically, have had the FEDERAL power, past, present and future  to continue to destroyed  our American way of life?

(WOW) A War On Wild Olympics?

(WOW) A War on Wild and Scenic Rivers?

(WOW) A War on Wild Wilderness?

(WOW) A War on Wild Endangered Species?

Now is the time for many of us to speak of a War On Wild and keep our rights.

IF NOT US – WHO? IF NOT NOW – WHEN? ~ Ronald Reagan

 There is a time for everything  

 a time for every activity under the heavens

 a time to keep and a time to throw away,

 a time to be silent and a time to speak,

 a time for war and a time for peace.

Is it your time?

Part II: A “war” on “wild”

2014 the coastline of the Olympic National Park has been a sanctuary since 1994 and is already designated as WILD public land.

Who’s really running the  “Wild” agenda  in the Olympic National Park?

How many overlapping “WILD” Global and local non-profit special interest groups are now collaborating, complementing the efforts of existing authorities, advising, promoting initiatives at the local level, manipulating, controlling and influencing our elected officials and appointed agencies in their PRO WILD OLYMPICS  AND SCENIC RIVERS  AGENDA?

 Is our collective representative government  being coerced into “WILD”   by the non-profit’s?  because of federal,  legal “Sue and Settle” agreements?  Or Are our elected doing this “WILD” thing for political gain and recognition? Campaign Contributions?  Votes?  Or, is all of this activity related to a larger “WILD” agenda?

How do global and local  non-profits have the power to run WILD in and on everything in our government?

The following is just one example of redundant, overlapping, frivolous WA State legislation under the undue influence and power of non-profits.

House Bill 2386:

Jan 16, 2014 – Designating Washington’s shoreline as a state maritime heritage area.

www.washingtonvotes.org/2014-HB-2386

 Unless, of course,  the true intent of this legislation is to place another overlapping layer of restrictions on every private shoreline on the WA State Coastline? Overlapping and in addition to, the private shoreline restrictions imposed by WA State DOE Shoreline management SMP Update

How many layers of redundant, overlapping Congressional Acts of oppression, ruled from federal, to state to county to city, do the American people need?

The following is  a document example of redundant, overlapping, frivolous WA State legislation

House Bill 2386:

Jan 16, 2014 – Designating Washington’s shoreline as a state maritime heritage area.

www.washingtonvotes.org/2014-HB-2386

 And to encourage congress to recognize the Washington coast as a national maritime heritage area.

The same 1972 Federal game,  resurfaces in WA State in 2014 by another name.

In 1972 THE MARINE SANCTUARY ACT, which initiated the NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY PROGRAM. Seven counties are included in the area which might have been designated a national marine sanctuary: Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, Island, San Juan, Clallam and Jefferson. National Environmental Policy Act (1969), Clean Air Act (1971), Clean Water Act (1972), and the Endangered Species Act (1973).

In 1972 political opposition to a federal sanctuary centered in San Juan County.

The latest sanctuary to be designated was the Olympic Coast Sanctuary on the outer coast of Washington State, in 1994

National Marine Sanctuary: A Silver Anniversary

In 1972, a Democratic Congress and a Republican president, Richard Nixon, PASSED THE MARINE SANCTUARY ACT, which initiated the NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY PROGRAM. This event took place during an era when our most sweeping environmental legislation was passed by the federal government. This includes the National Environmental Policy Act (1969), Clean Air Act (1971), Clean Water Act (1972), and the Endangered Species Act (1973).

Seven counties are included in the area which might have been designated a national marine sanctuary: Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, Island, San Juan, Clallam and Jefferson. Most of the controversy, however, as well as the majority of press given to the proposal and the strategizing of political opposition to a federal sanctuary, has centered in San Juan County.

The National Marine Sanctuary Program is administered through the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), located within the Department of Commerce. Its aim is to recognize nationally significant or unique coastal resources and to provide additional management attention through resource protection, education, and research. The act gives broad powers to NOAA, to implement programs and regulations to protect the resources. Since 1972, 12 national marine sanctuaries have been designated in U.S. waters, including one in American Samoa and four off the California coast. The latest sanctuary to be designated was the Olympic Coast Sanctuary on the outer coast of Washington State, in 1994. Each designated marine sanctuary has a uniquely crafted management plan, which typically emphasizes partnerships with the state in which they are located. Additionally, the governor of the state in which a sanctuary is located must sign onto the implementing legislation, effectively giving the state veto power over designation.

Regulations are usually limited to just a few within each sanctuary. For example, in the Olympic Coast Sanctuary, new regulations include the prohibition of oil and gas exploration off the Washington coast, and the discontinuance of the U.S. Navy’s practice of bombing Sea Lion rocks. Most sanctuaries include a regulation against damaging the sea floor. Nonetheless, fear of intrusive government regulations has been the resounding cry from opponents to a federal sanctuary. The National Marine Sanctuary Program has also been characterized by opponents as a huge bureaucracy.

Posted on January 26, 2014 YAKIMA, Wash. — From spotted owls to salmon, the Pacific Northwest has been ground zero for the impacts

Hastings said. “The economy that is based here is natural-resource based, with water, and with the timber industry, so whenever you have laws that impact natural resources, they are going to impact the economy.”

Wilderness Rivers And Lands of No Return?

WILDERNESS areas are managed by four federal land management agencies: the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Bureau of Land Management.

U.S. WILDERNESSES: Today, there are 107.5 million acres of WILDERNESS ROADLESS ISLANDS OF 5000 ACRES OR MORE, of WILDERNESS SPANNING 44 STATES and Puerto Rico, ACCOUNTING FOR 4.82% OF THE UNITED STATES.

107.5 MILLION ACRES OF federally CONTROLLED WILDERNESS  IS ENOUGH
