“We have been endowed with just enough intelligence to be able to see clearly just how utterly inadequate that intelligence is when confronted with what exists. If this humility could be imparted to everybody, the world of human endeavors would become more appealing.” — Albert Einstein

We have problems today with our environment, our ecology, our wildlife throughout the United States. Global Warming is reaching proportions of destruction never before seen within our world previously, and yet. . . Like a festering gunshot wound, we wait for the wound to fix itself. We see the White Gorilla sitting in the corner of the room, yet, it has been there for so long, we simply ignore and no longer question its presence. And when asked? Well, we simply ignore its presence as well as the problems it causes and continues to cause. . .
And yet the wound, yes, the same wound and despite our attempts at ignoring it, still there. The victim bleeds–out. Death eminent! A slow death. Painful. Until the chest rises, one last time. The lungs fill with oxygen. Then fills with blood. A dark shroud develops around this body of life-no-longer. The fight – over. The final gasp. The body goes limp – the pupils in its eyes turns white – stares at the sky. A white-like mist envelopes the body; rises from the body, seemingly evaporates while rising toward the sky, and disappears.
We have problems today with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Department of Interior DOI), who manage our Public Lands – – as well as our intrinsic and very significant symbols of freedom in the United States. Our favored Icons of Nature itself, Our Nations Wild Horses. We use this microcosmic-world and its dynamics, and show the public these government agencies context of continuous false information, false narratives, and, indeed very expensive to taxpayers – their disinformation campaigns to persuade us of things that simply do not exist.
I say microcosm, as this is nation-wide now, and especially government and corporate non-profit wide, as well. We can define the situation much easier within this much smaller context, but make no doubt this information, even though different terms used for different titles, it is all the same and some on more vast of a scale and costly to taxpayers, and all based on fraudulent information to cover up something originated from government agencies or corrupted corporations – but in simple terms, escalates to something far worse. . .
They originated the problem, the DOI – BLM employees, and every attempt they made to cover up, or whitewash this problem of their creation, continues to be more and more costly to the American taxpayers – compared to simply leaving the wild horses alone on our public lands, and where they belong. The overpopulation does not exist – but what does exist are extreme and exaggerated numbers that make no-sense whatsoever within this universe, in regard to Wild Horse birthrates, and especially as a continuous flow of evidence to us shows very well, the destruction the Wild Horses blamed for doing, 98% of the time does not exist! Evidence? Yes, and a lot of it – yet ignored, for now anyway – But we see this changing in the near future. . .
When it started, we are not sure, because it is done so often, currently, there is nothing within the evidence that we are perusing, to show the very beginning and the reasons why Environmental Assessments, as well as other regulatory situations developed to safeguard taxpayers, and expenditures within federal government agencies, are ignored. What we do know is the fact it exists, and it is Federal Fraud, as outlined clearly in our United States Federal Legal Codes. And the second dynamic we know, of this type of corruption, is the fact it is not done innocently; which, has provided “an “Open Door” to us within an investigative capacity, to find much more evidence.
And yet, here lies the problem of this type of corrupted system. What may appear to be innocent on one level, simply copying a previous Environmental Assessment from years back, and changing the dates, is a tremendous lie – very expensive to the taxpayers, when data from these Environmental Assessments are used in Science and Technical Reports – often from 10, 20, and even 30 years ago. They then assimilate the information as accomplished recently, and the data gathered appropriately. But this is the furthest from the truth as possible.
They then use this information, as we have seen it during our investigation, where they contradict, and debate Global Warming, and from data supposedly gather within the last month, when we find a copy of the same data, from 30 years ago, but the dates changed, and the Researchers involved recent employees at DOI – BLM — as they know and we know, placing the original names on that document would stir-up and aggravate toward questions as to authenticity and time frame.
What’s the problem, one might ask? When we attempt to resolve the current issues within our environment, via putting together several Ecological Habitats, information-based attributes, as references and evidence within a technical format such as a science research report or technical paper to “manage” that same habitat correctly, the difficulties of approach and resolution to any problems – thereby, become non-existent.
We are currently approaching this situation, in an attempt to decipher and exclude a lot of the BLM – DOI suppose current research from reference material and used as evidence. And we will eventually go to Federal Court to do so – if the BLM and DOI refuse to correct their fraudulent, and basically very bias and ignorant, illegal behaviors. Science and research within government can be our best friend – or, when ignorance and bias involved, can be America’s worst enemy.
No resolutions are ever developed from lies and disinformation campaigns. Today the grazing permit program, intermixed with the fertility programs on our public lands, remain excellent examples of how not to manage our Public Lands – with lies, false narratives, and continued misuse of taxpayer money. Accountability? There seems to be no accountability for federal employee’s illegal behaviors!
What’s brings-about an article like this? In this case, the amount of fraudulent activity conducted by the DOI – BLM continuously, based on fraudulent Wild Horse Over Population Counts (i.e. they originated the problem to develop increased budgets in their agencies), which created the problems of more false narratives and disinformation to the public, in order to cover up their fraudulent-behaviors, of their own doing and making.
Somehow or somewhere, greed developed, and the problems much worse, and grew out of manageable-proportion with reality, and actuality. Now we see, easily observed, out-of-control use of taxpayer money, unnecessarily! These falsified government documents, create a glut-of funds to be used to finance make-believe circumstances, and the serious circumstances that “need to be resolved” are left without financing, and destruction of our Natural Habitats develop – corruptly out of control, i.e. Wildfires and Habitat Destruction by polluted waterways, creeks and streams, or soil and dirt pollution, to the point of none-use!
The very root of this very false-problem, originated by DOI – BLM years ago, as truthful data and much more evidence accumulates, is the fact that overpopulation of Wild Horses does not exist; which, is directly contrary to the $-millions of dollars of taxpayer money used in Disinformation Campaigns conducted by the DOI – BLM yearly. The overpopulation counts, when the public takes time to read the material the DOI BLM puts out about the Wild Horse overpopulation, would see immediately these birthrates do not, cannot, exist within this Universe we live within.
These two agencies alone, spent millions of dollars a year to cover up a problem they had generated all by themselves, and to actually cover-up expenditures of $521 Billion Dollars in the past 20 years taxpayer’s money, to subsides Corporate Ranchers ranching on Public Lands — The only qualification to meet the requirements for receiving $-millions of dollars a year by already rich Corporate Ranchers, was to have a Public Lands Grazing Permits for cattle. And if they did not have a Grazing Permit for their Ranch near Public Lands, well, grab a DOI or BLM District Office Supervisor and take them for a short-ride in their helicopter, and by damn they will get you one. Grifter’s and scammers call this Greasing the Monkey!
There is no excuse for this. Accountability must be accomplished. And those in the DOI – BLM responsible not just for the origination of this problem, but for the ongoing fraudulent behavior and misuse of taxpayer money we see constantly now – the White Gorilla in the room, smiles, comfortably – as it knows, as we know, Americans today do not have the guts to make our government agencies accountable for their illegal activity.
