Wyoming to fight U.S. over
Indian reservation land grant

Reuters, by Laura Zuckerman

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/23/2013 5:14:44 AM

Wyoming will challenge a U.S. government ruling that more than one million acres of the western state´s land still legally belongs to two Native American tribes, Governor Matt Mead said on Friday. In a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency last week, Mead said he has directed the Wyoming attorney general to take aggressive action to overturn the agency´s decision, which he said would adversely affect the state. The land ruling was in response to an application from two sovereign native American tribes living on the Wind River Indian Reservation to the EPA seeking the same status afforded to U.S. states

Some of the comments on the original article are incredibly ignant ~ one poster imagines that the United States of America has been kicking Indians around for 500 years. (Good to study US history, and math. 1776 is several centuries less than that!)

Hmm ~ Wyoming, for the longest time, was mostly a chunk of land that was not known as anything but a Spanish possession ~ or, maybe a Russian possession as part of what became known as Alaska (per the provisions of the Treaty of London (1604).)

Frankly, before the surveys of the 1800s folks werent´ at all sure where it was or if it even existed.

The Indian claims are chancey as well. The tribes that clustered around Cahokia (in what is now Illinois) began hunting buffalo on a full time basis in the region after they obtained possession of the horse ~ and by that time certainly the Spanish claims had as much validity as their own. At the same time many of the tribes who´d lived there, or to the North, moved to Texas!

With the dissolution of the Spanish empire in North America (above Meso America) there was a serious period of time while competing claims were sorted out. Interesting that Congress found it necessary to make some adjustments in 1905 ~

Sounds like there are people over at EPA who don´t have the slightest knowledge of where Wyoming is, or what it is, or who lives there, or why. Not at all surprising really ~

Excuse me... the land was turned over to the Indians by ... the E.P.A.???? Over ´air quality´? Well, commissar, thanks for telling me that you have that kind of power.

One glance at the Agenda 21 map of the US will show humans are not allowed in the western states, with the exception of hi density locations on the west coast. In order to expedite this, the EPA & others are land grabbing everything for the gov´t.

Think twice before converting a conventional loan to a gov´t loan. It´s easier for the Agenda 21er´s to condemn & vacate gov´t owned land than it will be for privately owned property.

The Tripwire on Flight 370
Daily Beast, by Clive Irving    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/18/2014 6:54:32 AM     Post Reply
The moment the transponder turned off means everything to the investigation—and it happened after the pilots said things were OK. The fate of Flight MH370 could have been decided in three minutes. The Malaysians changed more than the clock when they backtracked Monday from their original statement that the last voice contact from the airplane (“All right, good night”) was received at 1:30 a.m., putting it instead at 1:19 a.m. The need for an absolutely accurate timeline of the Boeing 777’s flight path has always been essential to investigators. It’s the first thing that they request and normally would be instantly retrievable from

SEAL Team Raids a Tanker and Thwarts
a Militia’s Bid to Sell Libyan Oil

CAIRO — United States Navy commandos seized a renegade tanker carrying illicit Libyan oil in the Mediterranean southeast of Cyprus on Monday, thwarting a breakaway militia’s attempt to sell the oil on the black market. No shots were fired, no one was injured and the commandos captured three armed Libyans described by the ship’s captain as hijackers. The predawn raid, carried out by about two dozen members of the Navy SEALs using high-speed boats from a nearby destroyer, rescued the fragile transitional government in Tripoli from a potentially catastrophic loss of control over its main source of revenue and last

West’s Drought and Growth Intensify

MUMFORD, Tex. — Across the parched American West, the long drought has set off a series of fierce legal and political battles over who controls an increasingly dear treasure — water. Just outside this minuscule farm town, Frank DeStefano was feeding a 500-acre cotton crop with water from the Brazos River 16 months ago when state regulators told him and hundreds of others on the river to shut down their pumps. A sprawling petrochemical complex at the junction of the Brazos and the Gulf of Mexico held senior rights to the river’s water — and with the Brazos shriveled, it had

The morning after occupied Crimea “voted” to become part of Russia, President Obama was busy trying to appease Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas into continuing to negotiate peace. Oh, Obama also announced new sanctions against Russia, a nation that the administration had seen as a key partner on other US priorities, from ending the Syrian war to halting Iran’s march to nuclear capabilities. But the big show of the day involved Abbas, who came to the White House armed with new demands. Betting is he’ll get most of them. That’s because the United States really really wants to negotiate the creation of a

In a city synonymous with theaters and nightlife, the 26-year-old from Munich was perched on a scarred wooden bench in a utilitarian room in lower Manhattan on a recent evening, straining to decode - sometimes even to hear - the methodical hubbub of arraignments in one of the nation´s busiest courts.

Why Do Airplane Transponders
Have An ´Off Switch´?
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/18/2014 4:31:36 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON -- Ever since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared, a fascinated public has asked: Why can somebody in the cockpit shut off the transponder? It turns out there are several legitimate reasons why a pilot might want to shut off this key form of communication that allows air traffic controllers to identify and track airplanes. Authorities believe that Flight 370´s transponder was intentionally shut off, delaying search and rescue efforts and helping to conceal the plane´s location - a mystery unsolved more than 10 days after the Boeing 777 vanished. It´s rare for a pilot to turn off a transponder during flight, but

Anti-Science Environmentalists Ban ´Neonic´
Insecticides, Imperiling Global Health

Some of history’s greatest advances in public health – especially in regions plagued by insect borne diseases – have come from the judicious use of pesticides to kill or repel the insect vector before it can infect human populations. Because the market for public health pesticides is relatively small, however, most of these vital chemistries were developed for larger agricultural uses. Unfortunately, that source of new products is increasingly under threat from shortsighted environmentalism and the European embrace of “precautionary” regulation. As unpleasant as this cold winter is, at least those annoying mosquitoes have disappeared and won’t be back for

It´s time to realize that Vladimir
Putin can´t be trusted

Who killed Kennedy? The CIA. Who introduced AIDS to Africa? The CIA. Sure, it´s crazy talk. But those stories were two of Moscow´s most successful disinformation campaigns during the Cold War. And now Vladimir Putin is reviving these dirty tricks. That´s the argument made in Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism, co-authored by Ion Pacepa, an ex-intelligence officer who defected from Romania in 1978, and Ronald Rychlak, a professor at the University of Mississippi. And what´s happened during the Ukraine crisis surely supports their thesis.

U.S. Navy SEALs have taken control of a commercial tanker that had been seized by three armed Libyans earlier this month. No one was hurt in the Sunday night operation, the Pentagon said. The tanker, Morning Glory, is carrying oil owned by Libya´s National Oil Company. It sailed last week from the rebel-held port of As-Sidra in the nation´s east. Libyan forces fired on the vessel but were called off by the U.S. Navy, fearing an environmental disaster. The situation remains unsettled in the North African nation, which the government is struggling to control more than two years after the ouster of longtime Libyan

Pilot Suicide a Taboo Topic

Canberra, Australia - As police investigate the two pilots of a Malaysian passenger jet that disappeared more than a week ago, a possibility they must consider — however remote and improbable — is that one of them committed suicide — and mass murder in the process. While such incidents have happened before, the topic remains almost taboo, with investigators and officials reluctant to conclude that a pilot purposely crashed a plane in order to commit suicide even when the evidence appears compelling. A dozen years ago, U.S. investigators filed a final report into the 1999 crash of EgyptAir Flight 990,

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say.
