REPLY FROM WASHINGTON STATE SECRETARY OF STATE REGARDING THE MONITORING OF VOTING IN WASHINGTON STATE BY THE U.N.
Posted by conservativeamericanvet in LEFT WING EXTREMIST STUFF, LETTER TO POLITICIANS WITH REPLIES, LETTERS TO ELECTED OFFICIALS, NEW WORLD ORDER STUFF, OP-ED, POLITICAL COMMENTARY, POLITICAL NEWS, RADICALS, TAKING BACK THE GOVERNMENT, UPCOMING ELECTIONS, USEFULL INFORMATION, WASHINGTON STATE ISSUES on 10/25/2012
Subject: UN MONITORING VOTING
It is being reported that representatives from the UN (United Nations) are going to be monitoring voting/polling locations through-out the country and I would like to know if any are going to be monitoring our vote by mail process here in Washington State? If so, the citizens of this state have a right to know if this in fact is going to happen. Please reply as soon as possible as we are only 15 days out from the election date.
I checked with our co-directors of elections and they have not heard of any international representatives coming to Washington State to monitor our elections processes. That being said, however, it is not uncommon for international representatives to visit American states to observe elections, with the purpose of learning techniques that may be beneficial to emerging new democracies.
Best wishes to you,
Office of the Secretary of State

According to this article,a TSA Supervisor has come forward and state that the agency has been directed to hire wackos in order to help push the people into accepting the coming police state….. Well, I really don’t know what to think about this so-called revelation. Could it be that there are actually people in the Federal Government who are brazen enough to admit to this crazy, out of the blue, unreal, “conspiracy” of sorts? The really scary thing is,…. in this administration, I believe it’s possible. If true, this revelation should stand as a shot across the bow of every citizen in this nation. Is this where we as a nation and society want to go? Are all the “alarmist” FEMA campers right? Has our government been conspiring against us, and if so, will the patriots in the military allow this to happen or will they stand up and say NO?! This in my opinion, is the crux of the matter. How patriotic are our military members? If this is true, I’ll guess we’ll find out……..one way or the other..

“The American Thinker” is a very reputable web site that does not delve into “Conspiracy Theory” stuff, so in the process of doing some research on another story, I stumbled on this information. It caused me to sit up and take notice and coupled with what I was researching, it is concerning. Click here for the story I was researching and click here for the American Thinker article. Check it out, download the pdf here and make up your own mind……..
Here is a great article by Carl Pope that explains why manufacturing has deserted the USA. He says it like it is and is GREAT read. Click HERE for the article.
YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS VOTED TO HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO TRACK YOUR KIDS HEALTH AND SOCIAL PROGRESS

In the 2009 Stimulus Bill, there are provisions that allows the Federal Government the authority to maintain a file on your kids progress as they grow up and YOU can’t do a thing about it. If this is not enough to indicate that this government is totally out of control and operating outside the confines and boundaries of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then, well, I am out of words……. Read this story and contact your Representatives and give them a piece of your mind. I heard that Montana is mounting a recall movement to remove the Senators who voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA). Because the Washington State Constitution allows recall also, I think the Citizens of Washington State should do the same, including all the rest who vote in favor of unconstitutional acts like this. We citizens need to send a message loud and clear to these power hungry elitist. We own this country, not them! Click the pic for the story.
This proposal boggles the mind!! The only thing more boggling is the fact that there will be people here in the USA that think this would be a great thing…… You jut can’t make this stuff up…. The UN is such a sham and poor excuse for an organisation that the US should back out of it and kick it out of the USA. Send it to say… the UK. After all, their scientists believe in the global warming crap…..They published it………

In this lead story you will see how the global economy is helping the Chinese working class,…or is it. I work with a lot of Asians from all over that area, to include a few people from China and I know this to be true, plus I was told that a lot of toys are made by prison labor. does not surprise me at all, nor should it you. My immediate thought was to check and see how much of an influence or how much of a role Jon Huntsman played in this situation, but it looks like he may not have much of a role in the toy manufacturing machine. However, he was working very closely with Obama which should be enough to raise the hair on the back of your neck. This story beings me back to Bubba and China-Gate. It is really worth revisiting now especially since we are in a much more precarious situation national security wise because of him and this scandalous affair.
(UPDATED 112811)THE EU IS ALL UPSET ABOUT THE USA AND OTHER INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES DELAYING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE AGENDA
I find this BBC story very enlightening and disturbing at the same time. It is a great indicator of how the rest of the world has been bamboozled by the UN and have bought into the global warming scam lock, stock and barrel. For this reason alone, we must keep pressure on our Representatives to NOT buy into this scam in any way shape or form. As you can read, there seems to be some negotiations or meetings going on that the media is not reporting. Gee, imagine that!!!! Read this article and pass it on.
As I read this Bill, on the surface it seems fairly benign and well intentioned, but as I apply a few brain cells of thought to this, I find a few problems with it. First off, and the most obvious problem, is the very real possibility that this legislation could be “modified” in the future in such a way that it actually becomes detrimental to our rights under the 2nd Amendment. If you read the text, the 2nd is specifically and conspicuously mentioned, however, this means nothing as this legislation, as with all others is subject to change and there is no reason why we should believe that it wouldn’t be changed in ways that it wasn’t originally planned. Everyone should know as well as I do that once the Feds get their grubby hands on ANYTHING, it gets screwed up in ways that always flow in the direction of the prevailing political winds. This legislation is no different. Realistically, it comes down to a level of trust, and right now I have ZERO faith and trust in the Federal Government, in its current state. This could prove to be the “Trojan Horse” the anti-gunners are looking for. Secondly, there will be an issue of standards of training because each state has established their own level of competency each applicant must meet in order to be issued a CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit). For example, say one state does not require anything but a clean background in order to be issued a CWP, but another state requires a minimum level of training in order to be permitted to carry concealed in their state. How is the Federal Government going to reconcile this disparity? If I was in a State Legislature that requires a higher level of competency, I would not be happy about having a bunch of people walking around packing that may or may not be competent to carry. As a citizen of that state I would be concerned for the same reasons. Does this mean that this function would no longer be the responsibility of the states? What about states rights? This Legislation walks all over that issue. And thirdly, how would this law, if enacted play into the UN Inter-American Arms Treaty being negotiated right now by the Secretary of State in the Obama Administration? With the Feds in control of these permits, there could be provisions in this treaty, if ratified, that would have serious effects and require the government to enact draconian conditions on the issuance of these permits, thusly putting foreign governments in control of our 2nd Amendment. In conclusion, I am opposed to this legislation for the reasons outlined above.
I sent this as a letter to my Reps on this subject. So should you.
RESPONSE FROM MARIA CANTWELL 102111
Thank you for contacting me with your comments regarding concealed carry laws and reciprocity agreements. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.
Under existing law, the authority to issue concealed carry permits falls within state jurisdiction. Washington State is a “shall-issue” state meaning that residents who meet the necessary criteria (e.g. at least 21 years of age) shall be issued a concealed carry permit upon request. Currently, each state decides which out-of-state permits they will honor. This is done via reciprocity and recognition agreements. In Washington State, the concealed carry permits of other states receive reciprocity only if the licensing state: (1) does not issue permits to individuals under the age of 21, and (2) requires mandatory fingerprint-based background checks of criminal and mental health history (RCW 9.41.073).
As you know, Senator John Thune (SD) introduced Senate Amendment 1618 (S.Amdt. 1618) to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 (S. 1390) on July 17, 2009. This amendment would have preempted reciprocity agreements, including those of Washington State. In effect, it would have created a nationalized concealed carry permit set at the lowest issuance standard. Washington State would be forced to grant reciprocity to any permit holder, even if the issuing state did not meet the basic safety and suitability requirements of Washington State law. I opposed this amendment which was not agreed to by the Senate on July 20, 2009.
As your Senator, you can be assured that I will work to protect the legitimate rights of law-abiding American gun-owners, while continuing to support responsible gun control legislation to reduce crime and make our communities safer. I believe both of these goals are important and can be simultaneously accomplished through common-sense gun laws and stricter enforcement of existing laws. Thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts on this matter. You may also be interested in signing up for periodic updates for Washington State residents. If you are interested in subscribing to this update, please visit my website at http://cantwell.senate.gov. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance.

Thank you for contacting me with your comments regarding concealed carry laws and reciprocity agreements. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.
Under existing law, the authority to issue concealed carry permits for firearms falls within state jurisdiction. Washington State is a
“shall-issue” state, meaning that residents who meet the necessary criteria (e.g. at least 21 years of age) shall be issued a concealed
carry permit upon request. Currently, each state decides what out-of-state permits it will honor. This is done via reciprocity and
recognition agreements. In Washington State, the concealed carry permits of other states receive reciprocity only if the licensing state: (1) does not issue permits to individuals under the age of 21, and (2) requires mandatory fingerprint-based background checks of criminal and mental health history (RCW 9.41.073). On February 18, 2011, Representative Cliff Stearns (R-FL) introduced the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011 (H.R. 822) in the U.S. House of Representatives. This proposed legislation was passed out of the House of Representatives and has been referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, where it is awaiting further review. If enacted, this legislation would amend the federal criminal code to authorize a person with a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm issued by one state to carry a concealed handgun in another state in accordance with that state’s restrictions. The legislation would not apply to those prohibited from possessing, transporting, or receiving firearms under federal law. As your Senator, you can be assured that I will work to protect the legitimate rights of law-abiding American gun-owners, while continuing
to support responsible gun control legislation to reduce crime and make our communities safer. I believe both of these goals are important and can be simultaneously accomplished through common-sense gun laws and stricter enforcement of existing laws.

EMAIL FROM NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR GUN RIGHTS 111711:
|I was right to be concerned.Not only was H.R. 822 — the Trojan horse gun control bill — passed out of the House of Representatives this evening, it was passed with an amendment that would open the door to federal biometric requirements for concealed firearms permits and a federally-administered database of all permit holders.
Only 7 Republican Members of Congress stood against federal overreach in the concealed carry process by opposing this bill (you can see how your Representative voted here:http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll852.xml).
The bill was amended this afternoon by ostensibly “pro-gun” Republicans to require a study be done on the ability of law enforcement officers to verify the validity of out-of-state concealed firearm permits.
You and I both know what this means. A year from now, the study will come back stating that the only way to “verify” out-of-state permits is through federally-mandated biometric requirements for concealed firearm permits and Congress “must” create a nationally administered database of all concealed weapon permit holders.
One of my biggest concerns about this bill — the lists of gun owners a permit process creates — should send shivers down your spine: Imagine Eric Holder and the BATFE with a national database of concealed carry permit holders.
It’s bad enough to have those lists exist at a state level. Once Eric Holder and his cronies find a way to request that list from a state, they’ll do it — all the in the name of “implementing H.R. 822.”
The legislation now moves to the Harry Reid-run Senate, where companion legislation is expected to be introduced in the coming days. I have no doubt that the anti-gunners in the Senate will use this as an opportunity to make H.R. 822 even worse.
What troubles me most about this battle is the institutional gun lobby has been leading the charge for this legislation. In fact, they’ve been brow-beating Members of Congress who dare to question the consequences of passing such a broad, overreaching piece of legislation.
Republican Congressman Justin Amash (MI-03) fought back against the institutional gun lobby for its support of H.R. 822:
“It’s remarkably bold of the National Rifle Association to send out false and misleading messages regarding H R 822, an unconstitutional bill that improperly applies the Commerce Clause to concealed carry licensing. I would support legislation that gets the federal government out of the way of states that want to recognize other states’ concealed carry permits. In contrast, H R 822 will hurt gun rights by conceding broad new authority to the federal government to override state sovereignty.
Gun rights advocates have fought hard to prevent liberal abuse of the Commerce Clause that would restrict gun rights… I am disappointed that the NRA has decided to put its own interests ahead of the interests of gun owners. Fortunately, many other gun rights groups rightly oppose H R 822.”
Please call your Senator at (202) 224-3121 and tell them you want to keep the government’s hands off your permit and that you oppose federal intrusion into the concealed weapons permit process.

I am highlighting this because I remember when the last free trade agreement was made and I remember what happened………If memory serves, when NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) was signed, everyone in DC said that it would prove to be a boom to business here in the USA. Well, it really didn’t work out that way. Seems to me, it worked out great for everyone EXCEPT the USA. The next thing we saw was the tail lights of our manufacturing base heading south of the border, and now they want to extend that into Central America in what is called CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement). It is my opinion that this is just more bad decision making from DC when we cannot stand another hit like we took with NAFTA. If this happens, I just don’t see how corporations are going to be lulled back into the States to rebuild the jobs lost when they left to begin with. Now they will build factories all the way down through Central America. How does that help the US Workers? It seems by this article that they are more concerned about the workers in Columbia. Why would that be, other than the obvious? The logic is supposed to be that we care about the poor workers of the indigenous companies in those countries covered by CAFTA, but could it be that when US companies move their operations down there, they don’t want the bad PR associated with worker mistreatment? Gee, could be….. These agreements in my opinion should not happen. I predict we will suffer for it, not benefit………
This plan has passed the House. It is expected to pass the Senate easily. I predict more US industry heading south….Say goodbye to more jobs!
