EPA, Russia, Mexico

John Beale, the former EPA official who fooled his bosses into believing he worked for the CIA, was deeply involved in crafting costly environmental standards which are still having an impact today — though he came into the job with little, if any, environmental experience.

The details were included in a 67-page report from Republicans on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, which claims the fraudster’s role should now throw those rules into question.

The report is the product of months of research into the case of Beale, a top official in the Office of Air and Radiation, who was sentenced to prison in December for defrauding the agency with his CIA lie. It details Beale’s role in crafting an aggressive regulatory approach which the report dubs the "EPA Playbook."

 

This may seem like a single incident but my experience with government civilians both civil service and contractor makes me believe this is more common than one might think. It’s not just at the highest levels although though the standards at that level seem more based on political productivity. The lower levels are just plain nepotism and cronyism. This produces many bad policies and dysfunctional areas of government. But how do you fix it? More regulations don’t seem to be the answer as the process to higher Government workers is already filled with pages of rules. Most of these rules, in the name of fairness, seem to rule out the competent and insert the something quite different.

Russia and Crimea:

Some of you might expect me to say a lot about this subject but the truth is all is falling into place just as expected. But never fear our President is on the job.

President Obama is picking Michigan State to win the NCAA men’s basketball championship over defending champion Louisville.

In what has become an annual March Madness tradition at the White House, Obama filled out a bracket in a segment broadcast on ESPN Wednesday.

Mexico:

Lately I’ve been reading a little on Mexico and the state of the drug/cartel wars. Check out Borderlandbeat if you want some real depressing news.

EPN, 14 Months: 23,640 Deaths

ZETA documented, only in January 2014, there were 1,425 intentional homicides related to organized crime, which include “executions”, “shootouts”, “homicide-attacks”, and those that are a product of vendettas by narcomenudistas (“stew” makers) who belong to different drug cartels or drug cells throughout the country.

But don’t worry folks there is absolutely no reason to fear any spill over into the US.

    I was running simulations on why AQ hasn’t allied with the US-mexican border factions in 2007. Language barriers was the first thing I thought of. Given the current US deadzone on Mexican immigration, it would be pretty easy to conduct cell infiltration into California to conduct more Ft. Hoods and Columbines. Just one agent per school, at once. Secondary demolitions set in place by a team to get the police and first responders. Logistics would be ensured by drug cartels via tunnels and advanced insertion methods. Chance of discovery, about the same as Fast and Furious had of detecting US arms being swapped around by the cartels.

    Interestingly, other language barriers such as the difference between English and non-English serves as a useful barrier defense against Leftist brain washing. This isn’t from an external source but an internal one, due to personal experimentation.

    I suppose AQ is too busy using up the arms the American Regime sold them in Libya and Syria, to worry about that part of the front. Fallujah III is more important to them than logistics.

    There are certain groups making their way into the area. But so far little action this direction.

    I’ve seen a simulation of a business based around a casino model that used locally hired individuals to handle the processing of the rewards and material.

    I asked them how they keep corporation thieves from just taking all the reward loot, and they said that all of their transactions and tasks are electronically logged. The moment they contract something out of inventory for a customer’s winnings, everyone else sees this and is motivated to report on it. Creating a pseudo security state in a minority community. The people who are likely to steal are thus filtered out early when the prizes are low, and the ones shown to have a reliable track record of maintaining security are given greater access or trust.

    These micro lotteries happen on an hourly basis often, and thus there is no way the head honchos can log in and do it themselves while keeping the business functional. As a simulation of human nature, business practices, and gambling, I thought it was a nice source.

    Btw, the total population was somewhere in the 10-30 thousand range. As for number of employees, I don’t know exactly but perhaps 3 digits. Several Ponzi schemes were run on similar lottery systems, but the test results showed that a legitimate casino made more money, since it was more reliable and the money source was clean and renewable.

    So compared to what modern society deems acceptable scientific methods and college surveys… this is several magnitudes greater in terms of time and accuracy.
