OK-SAFE, Inc. PPT – Joint Committee on Health Care Reform Law 11-03-11

The research will show you what has been done in legislation to bring us to this point. It also documents the many policy concerns with this level of information sharing and why we should not be permitting it to be done nor being asked to pay for it and ‘forced’ to implement it in our states. Study the presentation and talk to your friends about it. We must be able to tell people why we do not want to share our data and why it should not be being collected and retained. We must understand that if collected it will be shared with/without your ‘permission’ because ‘they’ can. Once shared, there is no way to put the genie back in the bottle. What will happen to your identity if you no longer ‘own’ it?

In closing, Amanda gives the joint committee seven recommendations which we hope will be heeded by ALL of our elected officials and representatives who are charged with the public trust in any way, shape, form, or fashion.

1.Repent – not kidding here
2.Do not establish a state-based Health Insurance exchange – it will be the same as the Federal government’s version
3.Allow people to escape HIT/HIE system without penalty; do not penalize providers who opt not to adopt EHRs or participate in this system
4.Repeal state laws that prohibit individuals from seeking alternative health care services, i.e. homeopathic medicines or non-traditional treatments
5.Terminate the Oklahoma Health Information Exchange Trust
6.Audit the Oklahoma Health Care Authority – expenses outweigh benefits
7.Adhere to the OK Constitution – work to restore liberty

Do Not Connect the Dots USA via GiN: Keystone XL Pipeline will Increase Gas Prices!

TransCanada Trojan Horse: Keystone XL Pipeline Will Increase Gas Prices

Grassroots in Nebraska via Shelli Dawdy

As we’ve noted here, more than once, our primary interest in the Keystone XL pipeline project was the conduct of Nebraska’s elected officials at both the state and federal levels, and serious concerns about property rights. We did not have an overall position on the project and we did not recommend any particular action. Our simple purpose was to expose, as widely as possible, the truth according to all of the information that we had available so that Nebraskans would learn who is representing them (or not) in office.It was our analysis that Nebraskans’ primary concern is the property rights issue; people are particularly repulsed that a private foreign company has the power under our state laws to invoke eminent domain.

We did not call for a special session of the State Legislature because:

  • Too many legislators who had previous opportunity to act chose not to; they were either deliberately obtuse, at best, or actively worked to bury information about the State of Nebraska’s ability to exert its sovereignty.
  • The eminent domain problems within Nebraska’s statutes have not been mentioned by any legislators expressing concern, or by the Governor, so it was unlikely to be dealt with by them during the special session.
  • We were concerned that legislators would create or expand a state commission with appointed or hired members not accountable to the people of Nebraska, which would result in yet another morass of bureaucracy. In addition to poor stewardship of taxpayers’ money, elected officials would be provided “political cover”. Ultimately, we feared, it would prove ineffective now and in future.

Nebraska’s officials have already placed the State in an intractable position…

  • No action meant no fix for the property rights problem, no exertion of state sovereignty, inadequate reimbursement to counties for expenses caused by project, etc., and continued concerns about the pipeline’s placement through Holt County, which arguably, is a point of vulnerability along the route.
  • Action as proposed still meant no protection for property owners, high potential for running afoul of the Constitution (ex post facto1.  and “special legislation”2), and delays resulting in a costly lawsuit filed by TransCanada (bad faith3) and now, reportedly, potential lawsuits filed by other states in the line of the project.

Prior to this past weekend, at most, we would’ve recommended concerned Nebraskans focus on a “Hail Mary” effort to impact the eminent domain problem during the special session of the Unicameral. But, in researching some questions associated with this, we discovered some very disturbing information. It’s been difficult to absorb.

Our research is ongoing – what we know so far leads us to the following conclusions:

The TransCanada Keystone Xl pipeline project will result in increased gas and diesel prices in 15 Midwestern States – to the detriment of those states’ citizens and economies.

The project, led by TransCanada, was apparently designed by a cartel-like group of interests, essentially, as a market price manipulation tool.

TransCanada’s own documents confirm the purpose of the project; a 2009 permit application submitted to the Canadian National Energy Board lays out the facts. In addition, a group researching questions regarding TransCanada’s claims of “job creation”, allege the company made similar statements in shareholder presentations; but we have not had time to confirm as of this writing.

The permit application document includes the following points4

  • Bitumen projects (tar sands oil) are cheaper to develop than synthetic crude
  • New export markets are needed to handle increased heavy crude output
  • Keystone XL Pipeline provides a line for getting heavy crude to new markets now – option to move synthetic crude in future
  • PADD III (see map, below) is the largest untapped market for western Canadian crude oil producers
  • The U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC), within the PADD III region is the stated target market for the Keystone XL Pipeline
  • TransCanada has binding long term contracts with shippers in the USGC which are not fully available for public viewing
  • The fifteen state Midwest region, PADD II, is oversupplied with Canadian heavy crude and currently receiving “a discount” (translation: selling for a lower price)
  • Keystone XL will “strengthen” (translation: increase) prices for Canadian producers by removing oversupply
  • Keystone XL provides additional benefit for transport out of any synthetic crude oversupply in Midwest (PADD II) “to mitigate a price discount” (translation: avoid price reductions)
  • All Canadian producers should benefit from resulting price increases (estimated at $2 – $3.9 billion)

Market analyst Philip Verleger projected a $.10 – $.20 increase in cost per gallon as a result of the project, in his editorial entitled, “If gas prices go up further, blame Canada“, in the March 13, 2011, edition of theStarTribune.

Energy Information Administration U.S. Petroleum Administration for Defense District (PADD)

We do not claim to be the first group to point out the purpose of this pipeline, but it’s clear that the most important aspect of this issue has gotten completely lost or was never considered. Our research shows that several national news outlets and a U.S. Senator have attempted to draw attention to the market manipulation issue. See Footnote5 for a couple of examples.

Several groups in Nebraska have included, at one time or another, passing references to the fact that the pipeline will increase gas prices, but we have only seen it included in a general list of concerns, and it is always overwhelmed by a long list of environmental rhetoric.

One story on the subject did appear in the Lincoln Journal Star in February of this year, but for no explicable reason, this information has not appeared in any of the recent articles or editorials we’ve seen. Since the entire project is predicated on the concept of “national interest”, any coherent analysis of the subject would necessarily include concerns about negative impact.

The pipeline project undermines America’s sovereignty, erodes energy security, and decreases the likelihood we will tap our own oil.

Founding Fathers Knew Importance of Moral Values

Occasionally people wander into your life and change your life forever.  I have been blessed with some truly remarkable friends through the course of my life, today I want to introduce you to Shelli Dawdy.  If you follow this blog, you recently saw a post of a stop motion video by Tarah Dawdy a gifted budding young artist and photographer.  Her mom and I have become good friends as a result of the Lord really because we both have a calling inside the political arena serving the Lord and His people in the process to the best of our abilities.

Shelli and her family live in Nebraska where she leads a group called Grassroots in Nebraska and together we share projects and information via the Constitutional Liberty Coalition and R3publicans.  What some people may not know is that she not only organizes events, leads coalition efforts, writes and publishes online, but she homeschools her children.  Recently after reading a very misleading article in a local paper, she wrote a series of articles about some apparently widespread misconceptions about our founding fathers and moral relativism.  I believe you will find them educational and inspiring and sharable.  You definitely will come away knowing that moral values are inherent to a free society.  If we continue in moral decline, we will be enslaved.  On the other hand we could choose to follow the Lord because ‘where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.II Cor 3:17b

This is a series examining an article in the

Lincoln Journal Star on July 4 entitled

Whose side are the Founding Fathers on?

Just click one of the titles to read Shelli Dawdy’s response:

the first part:

The Founding? Move Along Folks, Nothing to See There. Onward Progress!

or second part:

“Efforts to Muddle History of the Founding Don’t Change Its Facts.”

or third part:

“Whose Side ARE the Founders On? Easy.”

additional follow-up to the series can be found here:

Ignorance is Bliss? No. Ignorance is Ignorance.

Slave to Revisionism

Thank you Shelli for a wonderful series and for all you do for life and liberty for all of us!

Blessings,

Sandie

clcradioiconJoin Shelli Dawdy and I on Blog Talk Radio this evening on The Constitutional Liberty Coalition Gets Grizzly as we hear more details about some of the Independence Day Tea Parties that occurred across the country.

CLC member Joan Fabiano of Lansing, MI, will join us to talk about her event at the State Capitol.

This round of Tea Parties didn’t receive the same media focus or buzz that was seen in April. Also, the events occurred on a holiday weekend. Further, there wasn’t a central entity online as also was the case in April. Did any of these phenomenon suppress turn out?

Also, we will get up to date on the status of H.R. 2454, the “Cap & Trade” bill.  When will the Senate vote on this soon? What’s in those 1400+ pages?

Finally, we hope that Liberty Rider, Michael Maresco will have a minute to give us an update on his whereabouts.
