Newspeople,

There is a 50 agent US Border Patrol Station at Port Angeles- do they play any role in keeping heroin away from the Olympic Peninsula?

Has the Port Angeles Border Patrol been able to intercept any inbound heroin?

 

Question for newspeople:

What role do 1,200-horsepower Border Patrol Interceptor boats play in keeping heroin away from the Puget Sound area?

2011-

“… their main interaction with the boating public: Boarding boats and checking for ID, getting a “vibe,” as Jeff P. called it, for what’s up.”

 

Newspeople,

Why did the Blaine Sector Weekly US Border Patrol blotter go extinct?

When is the last time the Port Angeles Border Patrol made an arrest of any kind?

Any arrests connected to the US/Canada border?

Any arrests connected to a Homeland Security mission?

Are fraudulent overtime claims still the norm at Port Angeles?

John McCain calls on Donald Trump to apologize to military families

I did time in the US Unarmed Forces- I am in no way offended.
Requesting an apology based on group identity is a political stunt.

Maybe Trump will take it a step further and point out that the US is not in the habit of wining decades of undeclared wars overseas.

Maybe he’ll challenge school teachers to explain- if the wars aren’t won- how can they protect our freedom?

Maybe he’ll point out that in July of 2015 it’s not safe for Marine recruiters to wear uniforms in Hometown USA?

Marine recruiters told not to wear uniforms after attack

Don’t say things that I disagree with. If you didn’t do time in uniform you have no right to speak out. If you did time in uniform- you should see society as a group of first & second-class citizens. Those who never wore a uniform are second class citizens and their commentary should be supervised by those who once wore a uniform.

 

Senator McCain-

“I have not yet met a single 18-year-old, including my own son . . . who said, ‘Gee, I want to join the Marine Corps because of TRICARE.’ No, they joined the military because they want to serve their country.”

They didn’t sign up for TRICARE Senator McCain.

They stayed for multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and kept reenlisting until they had 20 years in for TRICARE.

They could have left the armed forces to stabilize their lives Re: children in school, home ownership, a chance at decent local jobs for a two income household, family separation, getting shot at, etc.

They stayed in based on what they thought was an honest understanding of the benefits they were earning.

DSCN3049_003When we are told The Troops are fighting for American rights and freedoms- what does it really mean?

Can we expect the federal government to end alcohol prohibition for adults age 18-20?

 

Will the federal government end dry counties:

Where in the United States you can’t purchase alcohol

 

Can we expect the federal government to authorize concealed carry in all 50 states?

 

Can we expect the federal government to stop charging special fees for special people to visit public lands:

It took a constitutional amendment to prohibit the sale of a glass of wine- why no constitutional amendment to authorize a federal war on drugs, drug czar, prohibition of marijuana, etc.

It’s a great location with friendly people, beautiful scenery & a nice climate- unfortunately there has been much in the way of bad news over the past year or two:

Inmate Death-

Father of late inmate leads protest of Island County jail conditions

Large crowd marches through Coupeville, encircles county jail in protest of inmate’s death

Negligence a role in Island County Jail inmate’s death, investigation concludes

Why no arrests in death at jail?

 

Island Transit-

County leaders call for Island Transit director to resign

“…former administration of the transit agency, despite warnings, spent a $58,666 federal grant on a system that doesn’t work.”

 

Island County Prosecutor-

Rape conviction vacated over prosecutor’s omission

Recent release of convicted felon and rapist- released due to a technical mistake made by the county prosecutor’s office at the time of his trial.

 

Noncompliant agencies-

Whidbey hospital, agencies remain noncompliant with state auditor

Whidbey General Hospital cited by state for staffing plan lapse

 

Island County Sheriff-

Federal grant money goes to “…gain a better grasp on cross border activity and to prevent illegal crossings.”

“Funding for the boat was issued through the Homeland Security Grant Program under Operation Stonegarden.”

“But the sheriff’s office, after getting a $225,000 grant through the Homeland Security Grant Program, will be purchasing a new vessel.”

 

If public meetings were held on Whidbey Island & people were asked to state their top local law enforcement priorities- would a Homeland Security patrol boat show up anywhere on the list?

If the Sheriff was interviewed & asked for his wish list- is there any possibility that it would include a Homeland Security patrol boat?

Took a quick look on the web to see if there is a post 911 history of maritime “cross-border activity” on Whidbey & could not find anything. If anyone has info, please post in comments.

 

Local crime problem unrelated to Homeland Security concerns:

Sheriff talks about Whidbey Island burglaries at meeting

Whidbey burglary victims up in arms over lack of arrests

“Tingstad said he sees the burglary increase as a direct result of budget cuts and the loss of 10 deputies since 2008. He said it’s “incredibly important” to have a detective dedicated to drug crimes, but that position was lost in the layoffs.”

The federal government has money to share- but not to curb the sorts of crimes that concern local communities:

Public safety emergency declared due to Whidbey Island crime wave

Recommendation-

Let the Sheriff & the people he serves set funding priorities for the Island County Sheriff’s Department.

 

More federal cash to increase border security-

Whidbey Island police get federal funding

Newspeople post press release instead of asking questions.

Post 911 security protocols still unable to keep illegal drugs out:

New drug report: Meth still Oregon’s No. 1 problem, run mostly by Mexican drug traffickers

Methamphetamine-

“However, meth remains pervasive because Mexican drug traffickers continue to smuggle meth powder, liquid and finished “crystal meth” or “ice” from laboratories outside the state, the report says. Some production operations seem to have been transferred to California’s Simi Valley.”

Heroin-

“Again, most of the heroin is smuggled into Oregon by Mexican drug trafficking organizations, largely through California and sometimes through Arizona and Nevada.”

 

In Mexico, illicit poppy ‘gardens’ feed U.S. demand for heroin

“The program is paid for by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.”

 

Video: HISD BEGINS FREE SUMMER MEALS PROGRAM TODAY

“There’s no registration or proof of income required. Also, children do not need to be enrolled in summer classes. They also do not need to attend an HISD school to participate in the program.”

 

It’s all just a normal thing. Kind of sad that it takes a giant federal program to help families in need.

Love to see this funded by voluntary donations & administered by churches or private charities- organizations that actually specialize in helping people.

Tax money- which some people intend to be used to help others via public assistance programs– also goes for a third try in Iraq & other wasteful spending on programs that might not stand a chance if people were given the choice to fund them.

Helping others by donating to churches or private charities, food banks, etc. can avoid these conflicts.

Donors are free to opt out if a charity misbehaves.

People should be able to keep more of their own money to donate to causes of their choosing.

Here’s a made-for-TV potential feel good story that leaves several basic questions unasked:

TV News Video: Vietnam Veteran To Receive High School Diploma

If he earned the diploma in the 1960s- why was it not awarded at the time?

Did he still have additional graduation requirements when he left for the Navy? How long was he in the Navy?

Were his records lost in a fire?

It doesn’t seem like the diploma was significant in whatever career he had- since he made it through the last 50 years without one.

Why did he wait around to tie up this loose end?

Several comments here made by people saying they are very proud.

His story would be easier to understand if reporters were in the habit of asking questions.

Eastgate’s family is overjoyed.

“We’re proud of him for graduating. He’s going to be a remarkable role model to his grandkids, and to his kids,” niece Nancy Boyd said. “He’s the nicest man you’d ever want to know.”

Coach the kids to believe that a diploma is essential to success- then point to someone who went 50 years without a high school diploma- and call them a remarkable role model?

Don’t worry-

The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe-

US Department of Homeland Security-

“…a department with more than 20 different agencies, a budget of more than $45 billion and a staff of hundreds of thousands of civilian, law enforcement and military personnel.”

NFL Teams Paid To Thank Troops at Games

Decades of undeclared/unwon wars in distant lands didn’t generate appropriate levels of enthusiasm. It would take a $5.4 million propaganda effort to attempt to change all this.
