DSC_0123 Port Angeles- 41 opioid overdoses, five fatalities in Clallam in six months; Jefferson begins reporting

“Seventy-three percent of the known overdoses between Jan. 1 and June 30 were caused by heroin.”

When it comes to keeping heroin out- most communities don’t have the advantage of a new, $11.9 million, 50 agent US Border Patrol facility.

Has anyone ever seen the press question the US Dept. of Homeland Security/CBP on their role in keeping heroin away from local communities?

 

‘Homeland security’ has received $791 billion since 9/11

Love to see newspeople schedule an interview with the US Dept. of Homeland Security & ask:

Are passports/enhanced/Real IDs effective in keeping meth & heroin out of the US?

Standard driver’s licenses have not been accepted at the border since 2009.

 

Local law enforcement agencies may benefit when the US Dept. of Homeland Security fails to keep heroin out of the US-

Seattle media: Heroin busts could finance police construction in Snohomish

 

Feds Target Mexico-Based Heroin Smuggling Ring

“This five-year-plus investigation has already been responsible for removing illegal drugs from our communities and prosecuting some of the criminals involved.”

Translation: For more than 5 years- a “major” Mexican-based heroin smuggling organization operated inside the US while being monitored by the Dept. of Homeland Security.

DSC_0005 (2) Patriot Police Captain: My Oath To The Constitution Has No Expiration

Captain Higgins,

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.

“According to Capt. Clay Higgins with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office officers searched Thomas’ home on Prairie Rhonde Road and found 150 potted marijuana plants…”

“The oath I took never expires”, etc.
Many veterans refer to their oath of enlistment Re: defending the constitution- when & how do The Troops act on behalf of the executive branch of government to defend the constitution?

How is US foreign policy connected to defending the constitution?

DSC_0091 American popular and political culture insists on dividing people up into groups- then assigning a separate value to each group. Surely, members of a group would think, act & vote as one.

 

Meaningless group identity update:

Veterans and Military Families for Hillary

 

Veterans for Donald Trump 2016

 

Veterans for Gary Johnson

What about bus drivers- who do they endorse?

 

Recommendation:

Phase out decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas.

DSC_0080 copy Please visit beautiful Washington State.

Experience the beauty of hot air balloons lifting off near scenic wineries.

Plan your reunion here. Plan your convention here. Travel to spend your money here. Tell your nationwide RV club- this is the perfect destination.

Please- don’t forget to stop and see historic downtown Oak Harbor.

Purchase your daytime parking passes in advance. Pull up to the park & get screwed with.

Please tell your friends.

 

Fort Ebey State Park:

Afternoon visit 7/8/16

Midday visit 7/16/16

Entrance coned off to one lane.

Vehicles with Discover Pass & vehicles already checked in- forced to wait behind vehicles registering for camping.

Sort of like checking into a hotel- going out to dinner- then, after dinner- no access to room unless you wait at the desk behind others just arriving to check in.

One reason to purchase a Discover Pass off-site, is to be able to get started on an outing with no hassle.

More here: Taking the fun out of WA State Parks

 

Original intent-

WA State Parks web page:

“Having your annual Discover Pass on board allows you to drive straight to your recreation destination and start enjoying your day right away, with no delays!”

 

Old policy-

People who need to register to camp must stop at the guard shack to sign in & pay.

People who are in the middle of their camping stay & people who have already purchased a valid daytime parking pass use the lane provided to bypass the cars waiting in line to register.

Why did this change? To try and grab more money from anyone who rolls up.

Manchester State Park on Yelp:

“We have been camping here for many years now. It was always such a nice local place to camp at.
It has now become a greedy money making joke. My Dad came to bring me and the kids some more firewood on Friday. They tried hard to charge him $10 to drive to our camp site!
He kindly refused. We had already paid $54 dollars for a non hook up site- 2 nights.”

 

Discover Pass News:

Taxpayers out $45,000 after unlawful arrest and ranger’s excessive use of force.

State auditor: Fort Flagler sewer project ‘wastes millions’

 

My parent’s generation introduced me to Washington State Parks in the 1970s. Since then- the parks have taken on an authoritarian tone. The feeling is that visitors are treated as guilty until proven innocent. If people are taking axes to trees, or setting picnic tables ablaze- find them & deal with them as individuals. When we rent a slab for the weekend- maybe just leave us alone to come & go as we please. Extra supervision is unwanted.

Rent yourself a State Parks buoy at Fort Worden

Voted best consumer value in weekend recreation.

DSC_0298 For more than 4 decades I have had appropriate respect for LE officers. Still do today.

How does buying lunch for LE people or having your 8 year old make them a card address the many videos showing people shot while complying with officer’s commands, or shot while running away in a non-threatening manner after getting pulled over for a broken brake light.

Not against doing nice things for LE personnel. I am against violence directed at LE personnel. Where’s the discussion?

DSC_0006_006 Newspeople are asking zero questions about why the post-911 surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) seems to have played no role in preventing violence here:

Some may say that the shooter had no criminal history- so his actions were unpredictable. Kind of a weak link for the folks who tell us there is no credible threat prior to major events taking place.

Any credible threat prior to the last bank robbery?

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it- surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, school & church shootings, child abduction, etc.

Elsewhere on the crime scene, authorities need your help to track down violent criminals:
