Support President Trump for pro-life HHS Secretary

Tweet to support President Trump for a pro-life HHS secretary
October 5, 2017
As you know, President Trump soon will be naming a new secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services. The importance of having a pro-life person in that post cannot be overstated.
As you also know, the president prefers to take his message to the American people via his Twitter account, rather than waiting for the mainstream media to edit, dilute or overlook what he has to say. We are confident that if we approach the president on Twitter, he will get our message.
That’s why today, Oct. 5, Priests for Life and our youth ministry Stand True, Students for Life of America and the Susan B. Anthony List will be leading a Tweetfest to express our support to President Trump for choosing a strong pro-life candidate for HHS.
I’m sure I don’t have to remind you what the wrong person in the post can do. It was HHS that imposed the burdensome and unconstitutional abortifacient and contraception mandate on every employer in the country, including Priests for Life.
This president has displayed his commitment to the pro-life movement on numerous occasions, so we have no doubt that his HHS appointment will be strongly prolife. But the pro-abortion forces will criticize the President, and we want him to know that we stand with him as he makes this selection  from among the fine candidates believed to be on the short list.

Obama's dreamers get coddled, U.S. citizens get jailed. 

Each time I'm reminded of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) I reflect back to this past spring at our Colorado capitol. 

Why?  Honest, hard working third, fourth and some fifth generation U.S. Citizens testified on an essential bill that would have recognized their "valid pre-existing rights."

Sponsored by Freshman Legislator Kimmi Lewis -HB 17-1141, the Equal Standing bill, would have provided protection for U.S. Citizens (in this particular case, Grazing Allotment Owners) from federal employees who went outside the law in their treatment of these U.S. Citizens.  

When anyone preaches, "Have some compassion! Keep Obama's Dreamer act!" it streams in the words and visions of U.S. Citizens telling Colorado's Assembly Members their heart wrenching stories about how federal employees destroyed their livelihoods and lives. 

Unlike the "illegal" immigrants, none of these U.S. Citizens had broken the law. Contrarily, it was federal employees - who had a history of breaking the law. 

Unlike "illegal" immigrants, Equal Standing did NOT request preferential treatment. It asked only that "valid pre-existing rights" of these U.S. Citizens be recognized. 

Equal Standing asked for the return of "due process" for U.S.Citizens, and that federal employees be held accountable for their harmful, wrongful, illegal, unconstitutional actions. 

I'll bet you the same Colorado legislators who told these U.S. Citizens, "No. You don't have any rights," are probably insisting "illegal" immigrants continue getting preferential treatment for "breaking the law." 

So here we go again. Coddling those who break the law, while jailing U.S. Citizens. 

Where's the "compassion" for U.S. Citizens? 

Here's the original draft copy of Equal Standing:

Following is an excerpt from a Colorado Independent Cattlemen's Association newsletter: 

Supporting the effort of the CICA and Range Allotment Owner’s, attorneys Harriet Hageman and Korry Lewis of Hageman Law P.C. issued the following statement concerning HB 17-1141: “Colorado HB 17-1141 takes a bold step in the right direction. Range allotment owners are expected to comply with copious laws, burdensome regulations, and continuously changing policies of federal land management agencies.
It is time for Americans to expect the federal employees, as enforcers of the laws and policies, to likewise respect the allotment owners’ constitutionally-protected property interests.” The CICA was thoroughly disheartened to witness testimony against the bill by Terry Fankhauser, Executive Vice President of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association. Fankhouser testified to representing the entire membership of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, the Colorado Wool Growers Association and the Colorado Public Lands Council. Fankhouser introduced Cory Doig, of C.E. Brookes and Associates, as an “expert in the field”. Doig expressed his opinion that ranchers have no rights to the forage on allotments and that the bill violated federal agents’ immunity from prosecution under the Qualified Immunity Doctrine. When questioned by Representative Leonard as to the current process for resolving disputes, Doig explained that the hosts of appeal, objection and litigation avenues are all “extremely expensive” and “time consumptive”. Doig postulated that a revised version of the bill might better address the issue. Representative Leonard subsequently asked for an example of legislation that “could end or at least provide a huge disincentive for those kinds of conflicts”. Doig replied, “Perhaps something that uses very plain language, that is define the scope of employment or the relationship between the exact federal employees that are on that allotment, would be something off the top of my head, but it would take some time to come up with something that I think could work.”
The number of USFS allotment owners has declined by 65% since 1966 (U.S. Department of Agriculture). The BLM’s website likewise confirms that “Grazing use on public lands has declined from 18.2 million AUMs in 1954 to 8.6 million AUMs in FY 2015 (a 53 percent decrease)”. When a cattlemen’s organization hires legal counsel to fight against rancher’s interests instead of working towards a solution for a problem that they agree undeniably exists, it is a sad day indeed. Ranchers, are the heart and soul of the CICA’s grassroots organization which sees to the interests and profitability of producers of  USA  raised beef.

What "law" did Sheriff Joe Arpaio break? 
What spurred this question was the brouhaha over President Donald Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
My first question was, “What ‘law’ did Sheriff Arpaio break?”
I couldn’t find it anywhere. Why? Because he broke NO law. Therefore, it is this layperson’s charge that it was the judge, who first “broke the law,” by filing an injunction which ordered Arpaio to stop being a “law enforcer.” 
There are substantive differences between “law, regulation, injunctions etc.”
A quickie brief: Only U.S. Congress and State General Assemblies can make law. Agencies make regulations. Judges “interpret” law; they do NOT make law!
Don’t believe me. Do your own homework.
Learn how journalists opinions can mislead you.
Go beyond headers such as “Pardoning Joe Arpaio would show contempt for the Constitution” (Denver Post 2017/08/24). What you’ll learn is the reverse: The judge showed contempt for the Constitution, by filing an injunction which denied Sheriff Arpaio use of exercising the “law enforcement” duties his constituency elected him to do.

More Water thefts in progress were brought to my attention this past week. Of course my blood pressure shot up!
Water Rights Owners, PLEASE get proactive and do these things NOW!
a) Find your original Water Rights certificates.
b) Note the "Allotment Quantity."
c) Note the "Date of Adjudication."
d) Demand whoever's trying to take your Water (could be an MUD, one of the 7 Water Districts etc.) to show you the date upon which they claim your Water Rights were extinguished. They can't, because those rights - under Colorado's "Prior Appropriation" have NEVER been extinguished!
The following may be happening on other rivers, but because I'm most familiar with the S. Platte, hereon I'll be referring to it. Should you want to sell your shares, I urge you to sell your original "Allotment Quantity," NOT your Consumptive Use. Or, if you do choose to sell your Consumptive Use, remember that you retain and may use the margin between Consumptive Use and Allotment Quantity.
Why do I recommend this? Because the Water Thieves are manipulating instream flows making for a deliberate overhydration effect. Overhydration simultaneously raises the water table and decreases your Consumptive Use, thereby diminishing the value of your shares.
Demand Governor Hickenlooper withdraw Colorado from Governor Bill Owens tri-state agreement called the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program.
Colorado doesn't have either the Water or the $'s to giveaway...period!
You should ask, "Why isn't the acre feet or $ commitment amount of the PRRIP noted in the Colorado Water Plan?
The "why" is allegedly: It's the "carriage vessel" used by Water Thieves to move Senior Water past its historic dry up around Kersey, CO where it's peeled off (aka diverted) and sold to power plant, cities, and popping wells for new pivots (aka "redistributing agriculture").
When you pass new pivots out around Sterling, CO, just be aware that they were installed by Junior Water Rights Owners who are probably using Senior Water to make the massive lush cornfields (Sold for ethanol?).
Anyway, please know that you have "rights." And by God, exercise them!
Thank you.
