Settlements of Israel and Hilary Clintons Proactive Objections

 

 

“With respect to settlements, the President was very clear when Prime Minister Netanyahu was here. He wants to see a stop to settlements – not some settlements, not outposts, not natural growth exceptions. We think it is in the best interests of the effort that we are engaged in that settlement expansion cease. That is our position. That is what we have communicated very clearly, not only to the Israelis but to the Palestinians and others. And we intend to press that point.”
Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton in a joint press conference with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Ali Aboul Gheit – May 28, 2009
“And yes, I underscored the longstanding American policy that does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlements.”
Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton at AIPAC – March 22, 2009
“First, we want to see a stop to settlement construction, additions, natural growth – any kind of settlement activity. That is what the President has called for.”
Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton in an interview with Abderrahim Foukara of Al Jazeera – May 19, 2009
“…Settlements have to be stopped in order for us to move forward. That’s a difficult issue. I recognize that, but it’s an important one and it has to be addressed.”
President Barack Obama in a press conference with Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel – May 18, 2009

US Territorial Land Ownership to Our Government: A Historical Timeline

Sure you can trust the Government!!  Go ask an Indian!!!!

Starting with the Louisiana Purchase about 1816. We remember other Land & territorial issues throughout our history.

The wild west era of us brutally and violently forcing Tribes off their ancestral lands & forced into submissive Agenda 21 style living

The evolution of Federal energy policy from public land management contributed greatly to the major Congressional activities beginning with the second half of the 20th century. Responsibility had been divided, with the Department of the Interior responsible for oil, natural gas and coal policy, and the Atomic Energy Commission in charge of nuclear energy.

There was a similar evolution starting with the Committee’s concern with national parks and wilderness areas that, among other things, resulted in the committee developing and ultimately reporting the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, which required a detailed analysis of all “major Federal actions that significantly affect the quality of the human environment.”

Beginning in the 1970’s, a new concept of environmental management came to be an accepted Federal policy concern. A Council on Environmental Quality was established to provide the President with objective advice and comprehensive overview of the fragmented Federal jurisdiction. An annual environmental quality report was required to be submitted to the Congress.

In the first Session of the 80th Congress (1947), the Committee acquired the jurisdiction of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Certain islands in Micronesia which had been under Japanese mandate from the League of Nations were placed under United States administration by the United Nations after World War II. Although not a United States territory, administration of the Trust Territory was entrusted to the United States in 1947 to carry out its rehabilitation and development. Under this relationship, the Trust Territory was divided into four separate entities with which separate relationships have evolved: the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. territory; the Republic of Palau, a continuing Trust Territory; and the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, “freely associated” independent states

In 2012 California’s 3 Strikes Law up for a Vote

Dateline 2012 Ballot:  California’s controversial 3 strikes law went back to voters after 20 years of appeals, scrutiny, and non-violent felons being railroaded by Ludacris officials who see the law as a “quick fix” to reduce crime statistics.  Not just violent crimes.

California 3 strikes law 20 years later

Californian’s know this controversial law has accomplished little. Our state now locks up petty thieves, homeless, drug addicts, veterans, and gang members for life.

Has the 3 strikes law ever been applied to females?   We don’t know.

3 strikes law changed California

Steal a piece of pizza in California and  your life and your liberty are taken from you. Not to mention you will never be free again and you will die behind bars.

In 96 it cost the state $1,500.00 a day to house 1 inmate behind bars.  The cost to house 3 striker inmates after 20 years must be staggering . It has only been 20 years since voters approved the ballot measure spearheaded by a father whos daughter,
Polly Klaas was taken from a slumber party and brutally beaten, raped and murdered.

The Rosamond child cancer cluster

These are my neighbors. And Rosamond is the border town between Los Angeles County and Kern County neighboring Palmdale/Lancaster – The Antelope Valley.

You can't have my job, but I'll tell you a story

rosamond_2These photos are from the saddest project I ever worked on, the Rosamond childhood cancer cluster. I shot this over several months in 1988. There were two cancer clusters in Kern County at the time. The other was in McFarland, and Henry Barrios worked on that one. Probably because of the political clout and organizing abilities of the United Farm Workers, McFarland received most of the national media attention. But out in the desert, the people of Rosamond found themselves confronting an environmental horror of epic proportions: In a 10-year period, 9 children had come down with cancer, most of them with an extremely rare brain cancer called medullablastoma. The cancer was so rare that one health official said if two cases appeared in a city the size of Los Angeles in the same time period, officials would have considered it cause for alarm. Rosamond had 3,500 residents at the…
