Plum Creek: A Liberal Washington State Public Land Holding Company Ravishing Small Rural Town Citizens in Gainesville, Florida!
It’s a David Versus Goliath Biblical Story!
Just when “liberalism” connoted a fair and caring concern for the underprivileged especially minority groups,  like African-Americans bereft of jobs; or the possibility of employment, Plum Creek a public REIT [Real Estate Investment Trust—which does not pay taxes] invades Florida like poisonous weeds in the Garden of Eden. Nothing is more hypocritical or cynical than a $1.3billion public company that banks land and uses its considerable cash in order to rezone that land to profit from the presumed greater value of the newly rezoned land.  On the surface this seems like an innocuous business.  In reality this company has spread across the USA from its pristine liberal base of Seattle, Washington to prey on the helpless, weak, indifferent and ignorant.
What do I mean?

Its rapacious, longstanding financial greedy President, and CEO, Rick R. Holley, had entered into an illegal land deal in Maine in order to develop Moosehead Lake. What the innocent citizens discovered was that Holley as he was wont by habit and natural proclivity, deceived, double-dealt the citizens to such an extent that even he had to admit that ‘Moosehead was a loss leader’.  Plum Creek’s M.O. is to acquire land through complex land swap deals and federal timber contracts, then with the assistance of financial bamboozlers like Tim Blixseth try to flip the pristine property to unsavory developers.  These developers are usually operating on flaky financials and typically end up suing each other and declaring bankruptcy.  The real losers, local citizens and property owners are left with damage goods and lots of lost revenue.  Just ask the state of Montana, the Yellowstone Club fiasco is famous.

In financial terms, that type of duplicitous behavior in a public company listed on the prestigious NY Stock Exchange would have:
[1] had Holley dismissed as CEO
[2] thrown Plum Creek off the stock exchange for interstate financial chicanery, a massive federal offense.
[3] Dissolve the REIT because of fraud; using a financial vehicle for purposes other than the one stated. 

However,  I write this blog because once again my thesis that the corrupt and sociopathic never stop their dangerous behavior until they are ‘bitched slapped’ by the feds: SEC, FBI and various state attorney generals from Washington State, to Maine, to Montana and, lastly Florida.
Why Montana and Florida?
When I lived in Bozeman, MT,  I had seen the heartless corrupt practices of Plum Creek when they developed precious hunting/timber land that was given to them by Governor Racicot, now on the Plum Creek board, and called the expensive development of empty multi-million dollar lodges—Moonlight Basin.  Needless to say that this particular project in the beautiful mountains of Montana was a complete disaster, just as it was in Maine. 
For most of you readers all this stuff that I am discussing should mean very little, except if it happens in your state.  Yet this greedy corrupt company happens to intrude into my privacy and land holding rights by once again appearing mysteriously in Gainesville, Florida, where, by chance, I happen to be living.  As he has done many times before, this charlatan of finances, King Midus Holley, never one to let morals or good business sense get in the way of greed and corruption, promised all kinds of “goodies” in return for increased zoning rights in order to flip this newly zoned property [66,000 acres of Florida swamp land] onto another sucker,  just like they did in Maine and Montana.
Now I had the good fortune to attend one of the meetings where the county commissioners were listening to the palaver of the ineffective Plum Creek representative as he lilted his way to the podium and replied in a high pitched voice “We will research that matter for you!”  Of course, I and every one in that meeting knew the following facts based on the past ignominious experiences of Plum Creek and its Board of Directors led by the Rick R. Holley.
We all knew that most of the Black Baptist Ministers of local Churches, in what is euphemistically called ‘East Gainesville’[ read ‘Black Harlem’] were paid off to support the rezoning with the promise that their constituents would receive jobs from Plum Creek. It was a lie. Not one job was offered or provided; other than that of a paid lobbyist or ‘consultant’.
The  Director of the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, who happened to be black was clearly paid off by the Plum Creek board of Directors, in order to bless the non-existing project of so-called ‘newly created jobs’. Once again I reiterate the simple point that no new jobs could, or would be offered because Plum Creek does not do anything other than rezone worthless land in order to sell it off.  Job creation is not part of their IPO portfolio or stated objectives.
The Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Community leaders of Alachua county were incredibly verbose and at the same time completely inane in their claims that jobs valued at $40-50 per hour plus benefits could and should come into Gainesville, thanks to the ‘offer proferred by Plum Creek’.  Also Plum Creek would be able to build a 15million square foot factory to make…. What? I am not sure.
Thank God no one in the room, including the shrewd African-American representative believed this nonsense; and said so, in the following sagacious insight:
“My folks want to know how do they get a job when they have a felony on their record?”
Great question! 
Plum Creek could not and would not be able to answer that question.
So why am I writing this blog?
I am writing to inform the Federal/State/County officials to watch for corrupt, predatory interstate practices committed by the likes this “Liberal” Plum Creek company which dares not invade its own pristine woods of Washington State; lest their citizens there throw this company out of Seattle, Washington.  This company, Plum Creek, and many like them, are predatory creatures who are staffed by ex-governors like Racicot and other state and national officials and have no qualms entering into a poor area like East Gainesville, stir racial hatred and division for the sole purpose of earning a little bit more money for having done nothing more than trading on public lands that were given to them by the USG.

It’s times for us, ordinary citizens to retaliate. We do this by writing our congressmen and complain about Plum Creek.  We write to the SEC .  And believe it or not, write the office of the attorney general of your state and then the federal government.  A strong grass roots campaign will allow us to defeat hate mongers who stir up confrontations between whites, black, environmentalist and working class people.
The little people, fight the GIANT GOLIATH who wants to destroy everything that we hold precious: clean land; clean water; reasonable jobs for just pay; and the right to fight for developing our small community without interference from the Wall Street pirates.
What should really happen, is the Plum Creek should be indicted by the both the SEC and the FBI for interstate offenses and RICOH charges—attempt to commit crimes against the poor and helpless—across several state borders.  The list of past crimes involving this company are numerous, I will post a few but do the research yourself.
Despair not!
Once Plum Creek suffers financial loses and trading rights on the big board; then David wins over Goliath!
That’s the way the Holy Book wrote it.
I am just the messenger!!!


On the Ebola front, here is some very interesting info on Nurse Hickcox

here's a bit about one of Plum Creek's projects, two time bankruptcy and then more corruption on top of that
Fat Cat REIT Plum Creek has a history of disasters, they promise the poor folk "Chanel" pay off corrupt locals and then leave everyone with a big mess.  They did it outside of Yellowstone and in Moosehead Lake Maine and now they are trying to do it in North Florida.  Their share price sucks and so does their CEO, be posting tomorrow on this Plum Creep.

False Assumptions about the Ebola Epidemic Permeates CDC, USG, and the US Ability to Contain an Epidemic!
Thanks to Dr Craig Spencer of Doctors without Borders Recent Subway Trip to a NYC Bowling Alley.

I hate to say this again but the CDC has performed according to past experiences—TERRIBLY! Not to mention that this new Czarbola Lawyer/Lobbyist without any medical competency has been less useful than his boss’s pronouncements that “America is safe and well prepared for Ebola”.  Both men have been proven to be beyond dismal failures during a crisis.
We still have not answered the basic questions of how this disease defies every precept and mantra about limited infection capacity and an inherent high safety factor in being exposing to the Ebola virus. I personally and professionally have never accepted two basic precepts of the mantra that you have to be in direct contact with the fluids of the Ebola patient in order to become infected.  I have always believed that Ebola is an airborne RNA virus which has a very high capacity to infect anyone in near proximity at a very rapid level of growth.  In an infected person, there are approximately 10 billion Ebola viruses per unit of blood cell versus 10 million HIV viruses.  This exceedingly large number of Ebola viruses per blood cell allows the virus to expand exponentially into the body at an extremely fast rate that cannot be contained or stopped.
Its a mistake to think that a RNA virus which mutates at a very rapid rate every time any antibody attacks it, is a virus that remains static on a surface.  Simply put, the Ebola virus is airborne. It has to be because its RNA genetic code is immune to any kind of interception other than the fact that like the bubonic plague it will have no more hosts in which it can survive and continue to change in form and strength.

This newest case in NYC involving Dr Spencer would not have happened with proper mandatory quarantine and denial of entrance into the USA by competent, knowledgeable US officials.  
Here is what we should do now:
[1] Assume the virus is airborne. There is a reason why the Emory, CDC, workers on the Ebola Ward wear RESPIRATORS!!
[2] Mandatory quarantine of all fliers coming in from West Africa.
[3] Assume that everyone will or has lied on the Customs Forms about travel, fever and exposure to Ebola.
[4] Cancel all flights coming directly or indirectly from West Africa. Thirty other countries have done so.
[5] Provide military charter flights for health workers who are going overseas to treat Ebola patients.

[6] Forget the Czarbola whom Obama appointed—totally useless and misleading. Neither Obama or the Czar have any knowledge or real experience working in containing epidemics.
[7] Re-activate the Public Health Service and take it out of the Coast Guard Operations and make it have the authority to quarantine any persons, areas or countries that are infected with Ebola.
[8] Re-activate the Surgeon General’s Office, with a competent physician, trained in epidemiology and not just bureaucratic hack from Health and Human Services.
[9] Present daily briefings/updates/best practices from some competent medical doctor, other than CDC director or Czar –both of whom have lost credibility with the US public.
[10] The state, county and federal govt can pay for these procedures.  We pay taxes, the government is supposed to protect us from health disasters like this.

Forget the mantra that you are not infected until you show symptoms of fever of 100.4.  Everyone in contact with Ebola patients, directly or indirectly, must be quarantined immediately. Take pre-cautions and keep your immune system healthy.  Act accordingly without panic or fright. Be judicious and be careful. Always assume that what you are hearing from public officials is less than reliable so take care of yourselves.. …..until this epidemic subsides. Ebola will subside as did Polio, HIV, and other highly contagious diseases. It will just take some time and the common sense of the  American citizen in the complete absence of USG leadership, WHO stupidity, UN paralysis and a pervasive epidemic of incompetency.
This crisis will make you stronger and more acutely aware of the increasing systems dysfunctions that will continue to grow exponentially until we Americans decide to choose those people who have a Command and Control system in place, when it is necessary.

C.I.A. Finally Tells the Truth about its Past Failures 
“CIA Study Says Arming Rebel Seldom Works” [NYTimes, Oct. 15, 2014 , Mark Mazzetti]. 
Finally, the CIA, the intelligence organization which can never resist a selfie; or dramatize its non-dramatic history [Argo; Homeland; Assets] in a panoply of different media, has finally come-out-of-the-closet and told one BIG TRUTH!!
Somebody decided to reveal the truth that the CIA has had minimal success with arming any rebel groups, except for the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan.  I have a sneaky suspicion that I know why they finally decided to reveal the fact that they, the CIA, is not very good at most things, including arming and training rebel groups, despite the hysteria of neocons and their legislative puppets. 

I think that the CIA and Obama know all too well that arming a ‘moderate Syrian opposition’ is the equivalent of placing super glue on the hull of the Titanic while it was sinking.  The ‘moderate Syrian’ opposition is neither Syrian nor moderate nor an opposition. Obama was correct months ago, when he described this motley group of ‘dreamers, farmers, pharmacists and medical doctors  as a fantasy’ which could never defeat their own shadow let alone ISIS.  Remember,  I was there and from my experience the only ‘credible fighting group’ in Syria is attached to the hip of Bashar Assad and his more ruthless brother.  Any other pretense of opposition is wishful thinking. 
Even the formidable Hizbollah Shi’ite fighting force is waning in power against ISIS.  Hizbollah is finding itself using ever younger and inexperienced soldiers. If Hizbollah cannot match up to ISIS with all the help they receive from Russia and Iran, believe me, ‘vetting moderate Syrians to fight’ is the moral equivalent of necrophilia.
The truth is what I have said a long time ago. The CIA is great at creating 9/11 and the ‘false flags’ along with our own military but solving problems of blowback or other strategic challenges not so good.  Contrary to their collective interest in projecting an image of James Bond or even that poor CIA analyst Jack Ryan, the agency has never  been  effective in quasi-military activities or even professional assassinations. They have had to recruit Special Forces through an office formerly entitled Special Operations Low Intensity Conflict [SOLIC] located in the bowels of the Pentagon. In fact, the CIA has been quite miserable in the field of assassinations. They out-source them and usually mess up: Lebanon; Libya, Iraq; etc.
Have you ever wondered why we muster our military forces to ‘take out’ a former ally now newly presented enemy?  Think: Noriega in Panama or Sadam Hussein in Iraq.

So we can’t even execute targeted assassinations which compels us to create wars that we can never win and sometimes barely fight.  Yet pundits like Bush, Obama, Clinton or second tier Susan Rice, Samantha Powers think nothing about sending our young men and now women in as canon fodder. 
We have 16 intelligence organizations that can barely find out what each one is doing; but they brey like sheep for more and more money for newer toys while they become more and more stupid. Now it seems like a breath of fresh air was wafted through the NY Times.  Yet we all know that whatever the CIA tells you is usually done to protect themselves or as you guys know it---CYA. So the new CIA should be entitled the CYA!! Far more appropriate… and far more honest.
