System Innovations (SI) is an online platform that tackles complex problems through systems science and technologies, changing the structure of a system rather than through individual parts. Some of these systems include agriculture, education, and transportation from "around the world". Members include individuals from many countries and large U.S. cities such as New York, Seattle, and San Francisco. This organization intends to "ReThink everything", including the social, health, financial, urban, security, energy, water, and even political systems of the world. COVID19 itself has even become an excuse to "ReThink" everything. No small coincidence there. Networking all of these systems and players together is the goal of SI.
While this organization claims it loves "detailed outcomes" that an "organization could control", its job "is not to control and specify everything, but more to create the conditions for the desired outcomes to emerge". What an oxymoron.
In general a systems approach is pretty abstract and complex. This organization's goal is to take all aspects of the world and network them together for the benefit of all. These hoaxers are talking about "networking" parts of the world together for a fully functional unit, implying that the world does not currently function as a unit. In their scheme, there is no separation of parts such as nations, resources, or individualism, since they are just insignificant parts of the whole. As Aristotle said “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. Collectivism. What they are really talking about is globalism and how to manage it.
SI released a video, "Globalization", The Rise of Networks. Listening to the video itself is somewhat mesmerizing, distracting with mood music and some pretty spectacular photography, however it gives a clear picture of how a traditional free market economy is being transformed into a global digital economy that has no national boundaries.
While the reader is encouraged to watch the video to fully understand how globalism is being established and the ramifications for us, here is a summary of their mission.
It is about the economy. SI explains how the economy has been dominated by a capitalist free market system for decades. With industrialization and advanced transportation systems, the economy became more global over time. In the latter part of the 20th century, with the removal of trade barriers, creation of global supply chains, outsourcing, and enhanced communications through the internet, more global economic "connectivity" was enabled. This global economic connectivity over the last couple of decades has led to a single global economy exchange.
Through the internet, globalization has been taken to new levels. Exchanges of data across the internet has enabled "the sustained coordination of human activity", with digital platforms coordinating the economy and society. This is also defined as a digital model of globalization in which the UN is actively engaged for its Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
According to SI, a global organization is being formed with advanced technology and the "end game" for globalization is "coming into focus". Called the "decentralized web", economic activity will be decentralized, shifting operations to global based networks allowing a collection of computers to work as a single cloud computer. With this, and through the Internet of Things (IoT), the world can be quantified and markets can be built for any "resource that needs managing", including humans. The same solutions for any societal problems can be applied anywhere in the world, disrupting "the centuries old structures that carved up the planet into separate jurisdictions and societies".
In digital globalization, the internet is used to create network platforms that are managed by experts, or technocrats, comprised of individuals from corporations, education, research, engineering, financing, and other fields. Rather than relying on the expertise and wisdom of citizens, the world will be managed through these network platforms, with all "solutions" determined by technocrats. As seen in this SI video, ReThink Everything, all sectors of human activity are included and align with Agenda 2030 SDGs.
SI effectively summarized its globalization concept that will be accomplished through digital technology. While it is recommended that the full Globalization video is watched because it gives a more comprehensive understanding of how we are being forced into globalism, this is a shorter version that gives a basic view of how technology is being used to globalize our world. This explains why there is so much emphasis on data collection and why the CARES Act is funding the installation of 5G.
The Agenda 2030 SDG captures every aspect of life. These platforms will create networks that include technocrats from every walk in life. Sharing information on these platforms at a global scale, technocrats will provide solutions that meet the SDG goals. IoT is the mechanism that provides the collection and sharing of data, the "connectivity". Collected data can then be included on the platforms. National governments will only be used as patsy's, political buffoons who believe they are serving us best with expert decisions. Representation of the people will no longer exist as these technocrats will provide the solutions, which is currently happening with COVID19.
Using the SDG 3.b for vaccines as an example, vaccination data is shared with a state agency, which in turn shares it with the federal government such as with the Center for Disease Control (CDC). A network platform of medical and pharmaceutical technocrats can analyze this information along with other data and determine if the vaccine is effective, compliance rates and where those rates are low, which provider isn't complying with vaccine recommendations, and even which parent isn't vaccinating their child. Every aspect of vaccinations can be analyzed through the network platform. Once a vaccination problem is identified the healthcare technocrats will develop a solution. The economy benefits by producing and selling more vaccines.
Resource production and allocation is also very much at the center of this globalization. Technocrats in the network platforms for the agriculture sector will have the ability to monitor food production and quality, consumption, areas deficient in food sources, and how food allocations should be changed on a global level. Food overgrown in one area of the world and allocated to another part of the world can easily be decided by these technocrats. All control over food production and allocation will be taken out of the hands of nations, and humans. More sustainable agricultural practices and equitable distribution will contribute to economic development.
These are only two examples of how technocracy, the control of a society by technical experts or technocrats, will be implemented through digital globalization, which in turn meets the UN SDG objectives. Governments will adopt solutions created by these network platform technocrats. Digital technology gives technocrats the ability to gather and data, create solutions. and monitor the effectiveness of those solutions. This will not only globalize the world but it also removes all freedom, individualism, and national sovereignty. Humans become nothing more than their pawns in a technocratic world, meeting economic development needs.
Seven years ago a former Soviet KGB agent, Yuri Bezmenov, talked about the stages of destroying a country. It appears the COVID19 "crisis" is the tool being used to create a "new normal" as described in Stage Three. When will Stage Four occur? Perhaps when technocrats have succeeded in laying their foundation with 5G.
Globalism is evil. It takes precious freedoms and individualism, creates a lifeless cubicle in which it is expected every human will live and behave the same, all for the purposes of serving the global elite. If there is ever a time that Americans need to come together, it is now, to save our Republic. There is little time left.
In 2018, then Department of Interior (DOI) Secretary, Ryan Zinke, issued Secretarial Order (SO) 3362 which, among other things, called for states to begin the process of identifying wildlife migration corridors "on federal lands" and "harmonize State fish and game management and Federal land management of big-game winter range and corridors."
Several states such as Wyoming and Oregon have moved forward with supporting this SO, Idaho has been fairly quiet, until now. It seems there has been some typical behind the scenes activity between the federal government and Idaho Fish & Game (IDFG). In April, 2019, the DOI sent a letter to IDFG Director, Ed Schriever, soliciting a second version of Idaho's Action Plan identifying priority migration corridors in Idaho while providing thousands of dollars for research and mapping. Even though SO 3362 specifically stated federal land, this letter makes no mention of it, even providing thousands of dollars for conservation on "private land".
Obviously, neither the IDFG Director, nor the DOI contact has any clue that IDFG is a state agency. Where does the DOI get off dictating how a state agency is managed? Did any of this go through the legislature for approval? Were Idaho citizens or their representatives ever advised of this DOI directive? No. However, as usual, the environmental groups, such as Center for Large Landscape Conservation were given the opportunity to provide their input.
So, what brilliant plan has IDFG developed to meet DOI demands? What was a "federal lands" issue has now become a "cross-jurisdictional conservation", private land owner "collaboration" effort "to inform land management and habitat conservation actions". At the same time, other DOI agencies must be brought in to "partner" with IDFG to improve "migration corridors on DOI-managed federal lands in a manner that recognizes state authority to conserve and manage big game species and respects private property rights." Are they out of their minds? Improve corridors on "DOI-managed" land with state authority on private lands? DOI land has nothing to do with private land let alone state authority over private land. How does a state "conserve" big game and respect private property rights on DOI land? In reality, this is a very clandestine maneuver to hide the fact that the DOI plans to create fake corridors on DOI land while knowing full well wildlife crosses over private property. That is the intention, sucking private property into their fake corridor.
What is not being divulged in this scheme is that this corridor scam is about land use regulations and restrictions and is part of their connectivity agenda. Once a corridor is established, a mandate will be issued to "protect" that corridor, everything in its path will be dramatically changed with local land use management authority diminished. The IDFG document itself even speaks to limiting wildlife disturbance (i.e. no recreation) and avoiding development.
In its October, 2019 V2.0 Action Plan, IDFG had no problem gathering input from "regulatory agencies (e.g., BLM, USFS, IDL, ITD, and IDWR)", and coordinating with the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD). Nowhere to be found is any effort to talk with the legislature, local jurisdictional authority, or Idaho citizens about this DOI mandate. Maybe citizens just don't have the money to bribe IDFG like the DOI because it is already being taken as tax dollars for the DOI to use against them.
Page 8 in the document lists all priority corridor areas in red with no distinction of land ownership, in fact exceeding beyond federal land. Following that page is each targeted area in Idaho, described in detail. The identified migration routes extend across large areas of land, each with different ownership. Those potential migration corridor areas will require the type of land use restrictions mentioned previously. Federal land, protecting habitats, or identifying corridors has nothing to do with this. It is about redesigning all land to dictate where and what type of development can occur and requirements over how private property owners can use their land. It is the federal government behind this agenda and IDFG along with other state agencies being complicit with that agenda.
As we are being distracted by the many horrific issues that are tearing our nation apart, the federal government is continuing on its path of tyranny. Collaboration, consultation, and partnering were never written into our Constitution. Our government was designed through representation, starting at the most local level. That representation includes jurisdictional boundaries and specific enumerated powers of the federal government. It is the local counties that have authority over the land. The DOI is coming into our state with a fake corridor scam and successfully using IDFG to execute their intent to rule over land, including private property. While stated as voluntary participation at this point, it will eventually become a mandate. A Secretarial Order is not a law. There is no law that supports IDFG adhering to DOI demands.
Until everyone understands that the government, both at a federal and state level, has become a tyrannical machine this activity will not end. This is highlighted by Governor Little making unilateral decisions to shut our state down, how to spend millions of dollars, and using that money as a bribery to overlook his behavior by placating citizens with property tax relief. What a joke. Heads up Idaho, none of this tyranny will stop until we take necessary actions to stop it.
Elaine Willman MPA, is a leading authority and author on Tribal history, legislation, and policies in the United States. In her article below she explains how Tribal casinos bring economic devastation to local rural economies and how the federal government is a facilitator in this problem.
The Great Casino Camouflage
A national pattern is emerging in areas far distant from Indian reservations. Several rural and urban regions whose longtime population is entirely unfamiliar with federal Indian policy are awakening to a systematic process that installs "Indian Country" or a constructive "reservation" as a next door neighbor to communities. Local elected officials are ill-equipped, unprepared and loath to ever disagree or interfere with "economic development" desires of an Indian tribe.
Community residents tend to walk around shell-shocked wondering what happened. Where did this tribal government come from? Folks wake up to a tribal reservation and fully equipped tribal government where only a tribal casino was contemplated.
It begins with the off-reservation casino. When a community receives notice that an off-reservation casino is approaching, the tendency is to see only the business-venture, and to attempt to treat the tribal business-venture as any other project applicant. How will the project impact the site and adjacent environment? What infrastructure and municipal services will be affected? What about social and law-enforcement impacts? At this point in the process, no one sees the actual tribal government coming to town.
If the proposed casino is targeted for a land space already placed into federal trust for the tribal applicant, adjacent local governments and residents have minimal, if any, voice in the process. The casino literally just opens its doors once it has complied with federal law and secured a state-tribal gaming compact.
In accordance with the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988 (IGRA), proposed off-reservation casinos to be located on land not yet placed into federal trust, must factor in community detriment and environmental impacts. IGRA permits a greater input from affected local governments, and requires an environmental assessment and review process. But still, no one sees the actual tribal government moving in just yet. Here is the pattern replicating itself in states from East to West, from New York to California:
1. Revenue from a tribal casino is used to acquire land areas adjacent to the operating casino. Casino revenue is also used to acquire lobbyists and litigators who then form a triumvirate of tribal council leaders, lobbyists and litigators to quickly influence, overwhelm or overpower county commissioners, local city council members and other community leaders. Lynwood, Illinois and Rhonert Park, California are at the front end of this process. Then...
2. Land adjacent to the class III casino is acquired to establish a larger land base under tribal control. The Santa Ynez Valley is maturing through this stage. Additional land is needed for either expanded gambling enterprises or other tribal, tax-exempt businesses that operate at a significant advantage over neighboring non-tribal businesses. Then...
3. This process of expanding the tribal land base is repeated annually, with annual gambling revenue generated by the primary casino. As the land base increases, a tribal government headquarters appears within the land base, and the need for a tribal court, and subsequent tribal law enforcement emerges. A "satellite" reservation has then been effectively constructed. Then...
4. A very serious presence of a tribal government with governing authority over "Indian Country" or a "reservation" asserts its voice in all projects adjacent to the tribal land base. The tribal government voice is amplified substantially by supportive federal resources, fully intimidating state and local elected officials. Then...
5. Large areas of a county or region have morphed into a separate tribal government, a separate "nation," operating under its own rules and not those of the host state or county. Then…
6. With hefty supportive resources of federal subsidies, gambling revenues, special preferences and tax-exemptions, tribal enterprises thrive and non-tribal enterprises within the region wither and die. Then…
7. Failed businesses and additional properties are generally acquired by a tribe, and adjacent land values are impacted negatively, while adjacent property taxes are increased to offset the loss of state and county property and sales tax revenue that has either flushed down slot machines or disappears with each tribal parcel acquisition.
The most stunning examples of the above pattern are present in Madison and Oneida Counties, NY (Oneida Indian Tribe) and Snohomish County, WA (Tulalip Tribe). The pattern is in full motion in the quiet hills of the Santa Ynez Valley, CA.
Is governmental co-existence, balance and preservation of community values possible? Can state sovereignty hold its own with tribal sovereignty? The answer depends upon two critical components: 1) the education, courage and tenacity of local government officials in their allegiance to represent the best interest of their citizens; and 2) citizen education, engagement and full support of elected officials who support them, and removal of elected officials who fold to tribal government pressure at the direct expense and harm to local governments and those they serve.
The pathway to action is for each citizen to clearly understand that ongoing respect for all cultures, including American Indian culture, is a very separate matter from government and business decision-making. It is appropriate, even necessary to exercise citizen voice in matters affecting your local government, and especially in matters that involve tribal government decisions that affect your community, your businesses, your property and the local tax base.
Citizen silence is absolutely golden for the accomplishment of tribal government goals.

Denials come from all over the place that Common Core does not nationalize public education. In reality, the federal government takeover of education began way back in 1989 by Governors who "called for the establishment of clear national performance goals". Six goals were identified "with brief guidelines for the changing and restructuring of the U.S. educational system".
(1) All children in America will start school ready to learn; (2) the high school graduation rate will increase to at least 90 percent; (3) American students will leave grades 4, 8, and 12 having demonstrated competency in challenging subject matter including English, mathematics, science, history, and geography; they will also have learned to use their minds well, so they may be prepared for responsible citizenship, further learning, and productive employment in our modern economy; (4) students will be first in the world in science and mathematics achievement; (5) every adult American will be literate and will possess the knowledge and skills necessary to compete in a global economy and to exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship; and (6) every school in America will be free of drugs and violence and will offer a disciplined environment conducive to learning.
Thus began the transformation of our educational system to the mess it is today.
The Western Governors Association (WGA) Reimagining the Rural West (RRW) project is about destroying how rural communities live, pouring government and foundation money into those communities to do it, and implementing United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). It is an overlay of different SDGs, comprised of their social, environment, and economic pillars. Restructuring how rural citizens live, redevelopment of rural towns through transportation, and transforming the economy are littered throughout these videos.
In this workshop panel, Strategies for Reimagining the Rural West are discussed. One focus of each panel member is "creating communities where people want to work, live, play, and stay".
First to speak was Katherine Ferguson, Aspen Institute Community Strategies Group. Her initial opening remark focused on ensuring regional and "family" economic success, not just towns. Hmmm, her background is in "federal policy". Ms. Ferguson claims the local assets aren't considered enough for building capital in economic development. Through the WealthWorks program she mentions, foundations are pouring money in for "Connecting community assets to market demand." Sadly, this outfit is in Idaho through their Northwest Rural Development Initiative. She would really like to see that "wealth sticks" in rural communities.
The next speaker was Jennifer Groth, North Dakota Chamber of Commerce, Rural Development Initiatives (RDI), which was originally created by the Oregon legislature in the 1990's to create economic development in towns that were impacted by changes secondary to the losses in the timber industry. Partnering with the Ford Family Foundation, RDI moved in to "train" rural leaders on leadership and then create a leader "network". This agenda has expanded into Idaho via the US Department of Agriculture. "Regional" networks are seen as a "critical" part of rural economic development and the Kauffman Foundation supports their entrepreneurial agendas. Reality check, regionalism destroys our foundation of government through elected representation.
Greg Tehven, Emerging Prairie, spoke about targeting young people for their agenda. Emerging Prairie connects the "entrepreneurial ecosystem". This organization has foundation, public, private, and "global" partners and views their work as a "divine right" to serve the planet, a vision of "relentless pursuit of improving the human condition". They also garnered money for an "autonomous farm", seeing this as the future of farming.
Towards the end, the panel moderator asked each panel member what they did to surpass "conventional wisdom". Guess that is a polite, or p.c., way of saying they know more than generations of families who have successfully lived in rural areas. There is no way to describe the arrogance of their answers. Ms. Groth had some interesting comments about Ammon Bundy and her created High Desert Partnership being the organization that made Mr. Bundy and others "not successful in achieving their ends." You just don't get it lady. If so successful then why does her outfit have to go in to help with "healing" the community? This video is really worth the time for viewing.
Even though not about the United States, this whole RRW agenda, or "project" can be found in this UN forum, Rural-Urban Connectivity in Integrated Regional Development. It's about changing the way in which people live in rural areas, controlling the economy, and designing towns. This is what the WGA has decided is in the best interest of Idaho rural communities.
There are three other workshop panels, Advances in Modern Agriculture, Opera House Case Study, and Building Culture and Community Through the Creative Arts. Changing agricultural practices and bringing their notion of entertainment to rural areas, like opera, using foundation and government money to do it, are just a couple of examples of WGA intentions.
Gateway planning references how to move tourism traffic through towns successfully, for "connectivity" to urban areas, within a transportation corridor. But, it is really an interference in "urban design for neighborhood-focused development and setting up implementation programs for zoning and infrastructure to drive underlying value to sustain the fiscal capacity needed for long term reinvestment." What a bunch of meaningless babble.
The federal government destroys the economic base of rural communities by banning logging and recreational access, then run in with their grandiose plans to restructure the entire community. It's all about the federal government coming in to redesign how rural communities operate, along with the associated strings. because rural communities are "stuck in the past". Economic development is a major foundation of Agenda 21 and 2030 SDG 8 and 9. The dichotomy in all of this is the UN agenda pushing people out of rural areas to live in cities by destroying economies. Yet, here they are, by design, re-creating, rather reimagining, how rural areas should look and function. Every local economic development organization in a rural Idaho community is engaged in this agenda along with transportation agencies.
Rural Idaho, keep an eye out for this WGA agenda. Watch for local economic development organizations trying to bring plans to your area for education, health services, jobs, entertainment, and a host of other projects that align with this reimagining agenda. When a transportation agency comes around, make sure they also stay out of your town's development and economy. If a foundation comes snooping around with their dollars for an opera house, kindly remind them you will determine which music is most valuable to you. Don't let the WGA get away with any RRW project in your area.
Non-governmental organizations (NGO) are celebrating the introduction of legislation for the "protection and restoration of certain native fish, wildlife, and plant species" on federal land called the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act. Rep. Donald Beyer tried this before in 2016 and according to Govtrak this new bill only has a 3% chance of passing. The urgency came again following a 2018 United Nations report over mass extinction hysteria. Even though intended for federal land, the caveat includes funding conservation efforts on state and private land that encourages wildlife movement and creating a council to identify priority areas on "non-federal" lands. We all know that "council" would be NGO individuals.
Some states, such as Oregon, have passed corridor legislation, others are studying it. While NGOs hammer the federal government for this type of legislation, they are also targeting state legislators for integration of corridors and connectivity policies into state legislation. Idaho has an action plan as well, identifying areas throughout the state for corridors. But the true plans are laid out by the Craighead Institute, targeting land use plans such as comprehensive plans, local zoning and ordinances, even HOAs for inclusions of such conservation drivel.
The Western Landowners Alliance, based in New Mexico, has similar goals, advancing policies for connected landscapes. Executive Director, Lesli Allison, has started the campaign for convincing private land owners to conserve their "working lands" for migration. Translated it means designed, regulated, and restricted use.
Ms. Allison presented this powerpoint, called Intermingled Public and Private Lands, to the Western Governors Association (WGA) last year, describing her intentions with graphics. Below is the most striking graphic. As the graphic shows, the true agenda behind any corridor type is restricted and highly regulated use on all property types.
The "threats" Ms. Allison identifies in her powerpoint include development, roads, fences, livestock, and energy. Apparently she also thinks land owners are a threat as the process is "led by NGOs, government agencies". So much for her notion of working with private landowners on working lands. Ms. Allison isn't the only one looking at this "working lands" issue, the WGA held a "working lands" roundtable in April this year that included the Nature Conservancy and Bureau of Land Management, but no citizens. In spite of claims that landowners should be involved in the decisions, and listened to, it is really about deceiving them on the true agenda. The graphic shows the true intention.
If a corridor is declared on public land, the committed effort will then be plowing through private, municipal, and state land, extending the corridor from one protected area to another. Corridors, no matter what type, will have protections placed on them for banned or restricted use. As seen in the graphic, the purple shows how corridors provide "connectivity" between protected public land.
WARNING: It is critical that citizens fight any reference to corridors in local land use plans such as comprehensive plans, zoning, and ordinances. If inserted, that language will be a stepping stone for this land use restriction agenda. When it is time for comprehensive plan updates, be actively involved so this does not happen. Also, share this with your elected officials and private property owners with working lands so they understand what is happening.
Lastly, where is all of this coming from? Gary Tabor, Center for Large Landscape Conservation (CLLC) president, and Network for Landscape Conservation (NLC) Coordinating Committee member, is also the Specialist Group Leader for the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Connectivity Conservation program, the purpose of which is to facilitate species conservation through protected areas. CLLC is also an IUCN member, just type in CLLC. Tabor is bringing IUCN ideology to a local level, through the NLC partnerships that include federal agencies, and it is generally understood that IUCN is a UN partner. Hello Agenda 2030.
Since information seems to mysteriously disappear off the internet once exposed, here is a copy of the powerpoint.
In spite of the tin foil hat accusers that Agenda 21 doesn't exist, here is former Vice President Al Gore, and traitor to the United States, talking about it and how the world could now see themselves as a "single community of nations", "making up a global civilization". AKA signing our sovereignty away. In spite of his claims that the Senate holds responsibility for signing treaties, Agenda 21 was never signed by the Senate, yet it was implemented.
Agenda 21, known as Sustainable Development, was implemented by WJ Clinton in 1993 via his President's Council on Sustainable Development. Here he is talking about it.
Here is Nancy Pelosi promoting the adoption of Agenda 21.
Now 26 years later, we have been destroyed as a Republic, there is no longer a representative government, but rather an extension of our government by non-governmental organizations and the implementation of UN objectives, an oligarchy, funded by the wealthy. Until this is eliminated, we will continue on the downward path of globalization by the UN, and a complete loss of our freedom.
With the slow death of illegal Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCC), the regrouping of the organizations that comprised LCCs, and new funding from foundations for continued work, the pursuit of taking land continues.
The Western Governors Association (WGA) was established in 1984 and is comprised of Governors from the western half of the United States including 19 states and 3 US territories. Their mission includes addressing policy and governance issues, advancing "the role of western states in the federal government", and strengthening social and economic factors in the region, including developing policy on natural resources, and the environment.
WGA creates a multitude of "resolutions" and "initiatives", one of which cannot be found on their website, the 2008 Wildlife Corridors Initiative. The initiative eventually established the Western Wildlife Habitat Council, which was responsible for creating the Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool (CHAT) for data collection. Another tool for data collection by this initiative was the Decision Support System that maps all layers of the environment. Just a brief summary, all of this established the framework for non-governmental organization (NGO) objectives to justify the creation of wildife and other migratory corridors, identifying land for connectivity conservation, which ultimately leads to land that cannot be used and is government controlled.
This activity was accomplished without any voice from Idaho citizens. Does anyone remember these activities being brought to Idahoans for consideration, or any legislation for the same? Without going into depth on regionalism, this whole scenario is one fine example of how regionalism works and why it is so evil. Regionalism is a group of unelected individuals making decisions that bypass our representative government at all levels. This conglomerate of Governors, with their "collaborators", have created, built upon, and established policy and direction for states to meet NGO objectives, without any citizen involvement. It is also an absolute erasure of jurisdictional boundaries. For those not familiar with regionalism, better start understanding this is how our government now works, not through representation or as a Republic.
Fast forward to 2019. In the years since 2008, the WGA, federal government, and NGOs have collectively created the framework for migratory corridors, and now all of it just needs to be executed. A celebratory love fest of accomplishments was recently held through the WGA Roundtable.
While several issues were part of the 2019 WGA Western Working Lands Roundtable, only one will be the focus here, Migration Corridors. In each of the issue areas it should be noted the Roundtable consisted only of NGOs and several state and federal agencies, with no citizen representation. That is how regionalism works, and NGOs are gearing up for the assault on state legislators to advance their objectives.
The Migration Corridors panel members included Jim Heffelfinger, Arizona Game & Fish; Paul Ulrich, Jonah Energy, who is also a Nature Conservancy trustee; Matthew Skroch. Pew Charitable Trusts; and David Willms, National Wildlife Federation (NWF). While the video is worth watching, here are some highlights.
The panel essentially described how collared wildlife were used to identify the intensity of where migratory corridors exist, subsequently creating and funding "mapping teams" that have been "embedded" in each state to identify corridors. "Partnerships" between states, federal agencies, NGOs, and industry were emphasized with a paltry nod to involving more land owners. Exaggerated numbers of wildlife vehicle collisions were given for justification of using transportation as a way in which to improve wildlife connectivity. It wasn't just about wildlife corridors however, there was also emphasis on habitat that is needed for wildlife survival. Bottom line on all of this, the agenda has already been predetermined and set.
One of the most pathetic parts was David Willms stating we "didn't know migration routes existed until recently". What rock has he been living under? Ask any person who lives in more rural areas when wildlife migrate and they can tell you the species, time of year, and where. Since NWF is an United Nations NGO, and participant, Mr. Willms presentation was dripping with UN ideology pointing out corridors were an economic and "social responsibility" issue for "future generations". He also claimed "wildlife belong to everybody", "tourists come from all over the world to see wildlife", and world wildlife populations have decreased "50%". The Sage Grouse initiative was cited by Mr. Willms as the "blueprint" for corridors as it protected the habitat, stating it was a success. Perhaps he doesn't understand that poor land management as a result of that initiative resulted in the Soda Fire, destroying thousands of acres of land, not to mention the habitat and the grouse. To suggest this as a blueprint for future corridors is reprehensible, and a ominous threat to Idaho.
During the Roundtable on Coordination Between Federal Agencies, Kristin Thomasgard-Spence from the Department of Defense described their Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration Program (REPI) which buys land easements around military installations, citing "encroachment" as interfering with training. Not to be left out, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services has their own land acquisition program (Pg LA-4), and recently published a federal register notice to collect private data on land owners, including financial information and social security numbers, to be used for future land acquisitions. Of interest also is the panel discussion on Natural Resource Data Management and Landowner Privacy, which included the UN NGO Environmental Defense Fund, discussing the "mistrust" of land owners sharing information about their land, but once "relationships" are developed what wonderful work they can accomplish together. Landowners beware, don't fall for it, don't allow them on your property for data collection, and don't become friends with them.
They aren't fooling anyone, no matter how they fluff it, the goal is taking as much land as possible for government and NGO control.
NGOs are reorganizing, one of which is the Center for Large Landscape Conservation (CLLC), having now become "global" with Idaho as a target, and openly admitting to their UN involvement. CLLC recently announced their partnership with the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators (NCEL). This partnership includes Idaho legislators who can be found here. The CLLC goal is "developing legal policies and provisions to advance corridors and connectivity conservation areas at the international, federal, state, and local level." Get to know those Idaho legislators who are involved in this.
The destruction of our Republic with regionalism was given to us by WJ Clinton in 1993 with the establishment of the President's Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) which implemented Agenda 21. Chapter 5 and 4 are rife with NGO and regional collaboration. Federal and state governments, with UN created NGOs, are ONE, a trinity, blessing us by bestowing their gifts of taking more land for greater control. There will never be ANY resolution to ANY land issue until this is exposed, confronted, and eliminated.
A very clear picture is described here about one agenda, how it began, its progression, who is involved, and how it is being accomplished. This is only a small slice of one agenda, there are a malignancy of others. The agenda is set, this is what they are doing, and NOTHING will change until Idahoans awaken to that fact. It is not NGOs, the federal government, or state legislators. It is these three groups working together against you, an oligarchy, that has already become YOUR government, and will continue to do so. It is time to stop sitting back and waiting to see what will be done to us next. Idaho is facing an even more ominous future if nothing is done to address the source of this problem.
The Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREP) has been reintroduced by a New York representative for the seventh time in Congress, and has been referred to the Natural Resources Committee. This bill, H.R. 1321, is another attempt at taking more land away from Idaho citizens for use and designating it as wilderness, wild and scenic rivers, biological connecting corridors, and for other purposes. Claiming that "wildlife treasures of the Northern Rockies are of international significance", the standard environmental group mantra is given that "fragmentation" of wildlife occurs due to roads, harvesting, and mining, all horse pucky. No international significance exists when it comes to Idaho land, it belongs to us.
In the bill text, land is divided up into five ecosystems but the bill has nothing to do with ecosystem protection, it is about taking land. Each ecosystem includes Idaho national forests, and all are impacted. Affected areas incorporate land and creeks into currently existing designated wilderness areas and national forests, designate new wilderness areas into what is called the "National Wilderness Preservation System", take land for "biological connecting corridors", all of the areas being too exhaustive to list here. Also defined is "no new road construction or reconstruction, or timber harvest (except firewood gathering) shall be allowed in the lands". Everyone should take the time to see how their own particular area would be affected.
One non-governmental organization (NGO) that has put much effort into increasing federally protected land is the Greater Yellowstone Coalition (GYC), which covers the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and Greater Salmon/Selway Ecosystem, both listed in the bill. GYC is out of Bozeman, Montana, but is also registered in Idaho. Kathy Rinaldi is the Idaho Conservation Coordinator for GYC, and Allison Michalski is the Idaho Conservation Associate. Their focus is "protecting" lands in Idaho from eastern Idaho through the Salmon area. Areas they focus on are included in the bill such as the Custer Gallatin National Forest, and water protection.
In the first 10/1/16-9/30/17' tax return posted below, with a net balance of 10,813,967 dollars, the GYC spent $118,957 in "direct lobbying" to influence a legislative body. $18,788 was spent on "grassroots" lobbying, which is an indirect way of influencing legislative bodies through their members. Another fact found in their tax return is the donation of $27,500 to the National Wildlife Federation, Idaho being an affiliate, for a "grazing allotment buyout", land that will most likely never be used again.
GYC proudly boasts about convincing the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to protect Grizzly habitat while partnering with them on other issues, shutting down sheep grazing, and again buying out grazing allotments. Is it no wonder that citizens have no voice on land use when NGOs such as GYC and others have the pocketbook and relationships to get what they want? Giving money to the USFS (pg 30) is just one way as they also partner with Idaho Fish & Game (IDFG), having even been on the "core team" for the development of the State Wildlife Action Plan (Rinaldi, page xii).
For an unknown reason, other than a request for an extension on tax filing, the GYC website lists a different tax form for the same year. In this form, lobbying expenses for the same period came to $116,300 in a payment made to a Washington D.C. lobbying firm, Forbes-Tate Partners. Given the drive for protecting land, did the GYC lobbyist have anything to do with the reintroduction of NREP or the recently signed S. 47?
In the tax forms, GYC specifically states one accomplishment as "permanently protecting Yellowstone's northern gateway from two proposed gold mines", that was in 2017. GYC took credit for the passage of the 2019 Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act that was included in S. 47. President Trump just signed this bill, effectively endorsing the GYC goal of shutting down all gold mining activity north of Yellowstone Park. Do they hold the same lobbying power to take thousands of acres of land for wilderness through NREP? Other accomplishments listed in the tax form, "conserving public lands...in the Gallatin Range...and...High Divide", and new protections on BLM lands. Water is another focus for "permanent" protection. All of these are addressed in the NREP bill.
As a partner with Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y), which is a IUCN member and supports IUCN objectives for protecting large areas for conservation, GYC is in charge of implementing those IUCN objectives within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and Salmon-Selway Ecosystem.
Representatives Russ Fulcher and Mike Simpson are both members of the Congressional Western Conference (CWC), although Rep. Simpson is known for his alignment with NGOs and support for land grab legislation. CWC has a multitude of issues that it covers, one of which is federal land management, claiming too much land is controlled by the federal government and the "checkerboard" of land ownership should be streamlined. Yet at the same time, this group applauded the passage of S.47, which establishes more national monuments, designates more wilderness areas and wild and scenic rivers, restores the Land and Water Conservation Fund which is used for land purchases by the federal government, and provides money to NGOs for continuation of their agenda. Taking more land is being justified by increased access to public land use "unless specifically designated otherwise". Should the CWC be trusted to oppose NREP, or have GYC lobbyists and others successfully infiltrated, or bought, the caucus? NGOs have become so financially powerful they are now buying logging industries.
From all accounts, it is clear that the federal government has only one intention in mind, take more land and restrict use, leaving citizens they represent out, instead building and funding NGO partnerships to accomplish their goals. NREP is just another example of how we are being robbed of our land. Let your representatives, CWC, and the House Committee on Natural Resources know that you oppose more land being taken from us and their support of NGO agendas.
It is well known that the federal government is heavily in bed with non governmental organizations (NGO), especially our resource agencies through the Department of Interior (DOI) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). What may not be understood is how big that bed is or why federal agencies continue to implement NGO objectives over the voice of citizens. The Network For Landscape Conservation (NLC) provides the explanation.
The NLC "mission" is advancing "...collaborative, cross border conservation as an essential approach to connect and protect nature, culture, and community". Note should be taken on that cross border statement. This means across states, counties, and countries, the primary country they are referring to is Canada. There is no recognition of jurisdictional boundaries. NLC is a "hub" of organizations and individuals who participate in the agenda to place as much land as possible into conservation. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services (USFWS), Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y), Nature Conservancy, Land Trusts, Bureau of Land Mangement (BLM), conservation zealots, and others all serve on the coordinating committee. NLC membership includes "100-plus organizational partners and 2,000-plus involved practitioners."
While NLC claims to "bring people together", it is really about robbing citizen rights for representation through their elected officials, instead placing decisions with those who have no interest other than implementing their own ideology. By their own admission, they recognize this is a "shift in process" that "...crosses jurisdictional and topical boundaries, transcending traditional decision-making processes (meaning the foundation of our government as a Republic), and top-down hierarchies." It is government run amok with tyranny.
Recently, Landscape Conservation Cooperatives were "discontinued". However, efforts are now underway by USFWS and state agencies to fund the same objective through "public and private partners" and continue their conservation work. NLC is also pursuing funding for their objectives through a newly created Catalyst Fund, with money coming from foundations. This money will be used to help "build capacity", that is, it will bring in more partners to overpower us with their objectives and build up NGO activity. All of their initiatives in Idaho can be found on this map with the names of the groups that are executing their agenda upon us. Get to know those names so you know who you are dealing with, and their objectives. Since the cooperatives were eliminated, or at least diminished in their capacity, the governments and NGOs are now coalescing into organizations such as the NLC, there are many others. This is creating possibly a new, more powerful mass that will increase their threat towards us.
As seen here, NLC partners include the USFS, BLM, National Park Service, USFWS, NGOs, land trusts, foundations, policy centers, and universities. Nowhere to be found are citizens or local governments. It is these groups and individuals who are making decisions with the federal government on land use, if use is even allowed at all. In conjunction with these groups, federal agencies write policies, then, using the Delphi technique, parade around in front of us with a charade of phony collaborative meetings to placate us into believing we have input. Opposing science to theirs is ignored, violating the Data Quality Act, and impacts to local businesses are dissed which is in conflict with the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Included in these ignored laws is the mandate for Coordination, the requirement that a federal agency meet with local governments to ensure consistency in land use policies prior to any action being taken.
While the NLC claims local governments are aware of and support landscape conservation, when is the last time your elected official announced this support to constituents? Is it the intent for local governments, who hold the highest authority for governance closest to the people, to align "...with appropriate state, federal and non-governmental programs to support landscape conservation..."? Or is that support hidden through unelected associations such as the National Association of Counties? NLC admits to incorporating their objectives "...into existing state policies and programs—in traditional conservation programs like State Wildlife Action Plans...". There is no escaping the fact that the intent is to align government policies that support landscape conservation in all levels of government. To learn more about those objectives NLC has archived webinars which provide insight into how these individuals and groups think and their ideology.
The truth is, federal agencies are in partnership with the NLC and its members to develop policy, however the members of the "Policy Working Group" are not identified. A policy paper was written for President Trump shortly after he was elected, deciding for you that you believe in their brand of conservation, asking for continued use of your tax dollar to support them, and supporting the creation of partnerships with the private sector. Perhaps the groups listed in that paper identify those who are part of the working group. This is why citizens cannot get their voice heard, the NLC and all of their cronies have already made the decision with the federal government. In fact, the 1964 Wilderness Act was written by Howard Zahniser from the Wilderness Society. That is how long the NGOs have had control. Completely left out of the equation is local government and citizen involvement. The federal government works for these groups, not us.
For all of those who are experiencing these atrocities on local issues, your voice being ignored in decisions about public land, take this information to your next meeting with a federal agency, start asking questions about their partnerships with NGOs, and provide those NGO names. Make them aware that you know these partnerships exist and ask that documentation of their work with each other is made available to you. Demand answers, you have a right to know who is running the show with these agencies. Publicize your knowledge about this information, identify the groups and players and name them, identify their objectives and how it aligns with federal agency actions. Expose them, confront them, let others know so they can join you. Now is the time to disrupt their agenda and expose the truth.
