Presidential Memorandum: Obama prohibits future oil and gas drilling in Bristol Bay (and more than 50,000 square miles) in Alaska.

I don’t know very much about Presidential Memorandums but I’d like to learn more about them. I don’t believe that they are something new and I’m fairly certain that past Presidents have issued them, as well.

Apparently these Presidential Memorandums have also been referred to as Presidential Letters.  They seem to be very similar to Executive Orders (which have been around before Barack Obama was even born).

It appears that Obama’s recent Presidential Memorandum keeps future oil and gas drilling out of more than 50,000 square miles in Alaska.

Evidently in the year 1953 our US Congress passed the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act which states (section 1341(a)), The President of the United States may, from time to time, withdraw from disposition any of the unleased lands of the outer Continental Shelf.

Obama Presidential Memorandum Alaska

What are your thoughts on Presidential Memorandums?

Myself, I’m still not sure yet what to think (I need to investigate) regarding Presidential Memorandums. However, I am VERY PLEASED that Obama has decided, at least for the time being, to keep future oil and gas drilling out of Bristol Bay and approximately 50,000 square miles in Alaska.  It appears that US Congress legislated the matter in 1953 so I don’t, at least for the moment, find too much wrong with Obama keeping oil and gas drilling out of certain parts of Alaska for a while.

Speaking of oil…I’m very grateful that the State of Iowa (my home State) does not permit gas and oil fracking (although we do supply the sand, from sand mines in northeast Iowa, for fracking use in North Dakota). I don’t want Iowa to end up like the State of Wyoming where that water tastes like oil (and people die from it).

Rick Perry, stay out of Iowa and save your pro-fracking speeches for the gumps in Texas.

Part 2: Scribd.com goes 1984, again?

As readers may know we published a report here at WOBIK on April 16th, 2014 titled as Scribd.com goes 1984? Removes two uploaded (2012) ObamaCare documents, and replaces (2014) them with different versions?

I have now received a third email from Scribd.com concerning a third, and entirely different, uploaded document which they have now temporarily disabled access to (their way of saying that the document has been removed).

We published the document at the Scribd website on or about February 25th, 2013:

Link:  USDOJ Memo (Jan 4, 2013): ‘Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies’ (Greg Ridgeway, Ph.D.)

The document is now gone and this is what you see:

USDOJ Memo 2013 Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies Greg Ridgeway Ph.D.

We also published a report regarding the said USDOJ Memo here at the WOBIK blog on February 25th, 2013:

Link:  USDOJ Memo (Jan 4, 2013): ‘Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies’ (Greg Ridgeway, Ph.D.).

Last month I received the following email (11.21.2014) from Scribd.com, embedded below for review, stating that, “This is a notification that Scribd’s BookID copyright protection system has temporarily disabled access to “USDOJ Memo (Jan 4, 2013): ‘Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies’ (Greg Ridgeway,” (id: 127248392). This does not mean that an infringement has occurred, or that you have done anything wrong. BookID is part of Scribd’s diverse efforts to reinforce the rights of intellectual property rights holders. BookID is reviewing documents on Scribd over the next few weeks for possible matches to copyrighted content.

11.21.2014 email from Scribd. REMOVED – USDOJ Memo (Jan 4, 2013): ‘Summary of Select Firearm Violence Preve… by Lucas Daniel Smith

I don’t understand why the USDOJ Memo was removed.  Furthermore, I’ve never used Smashwords (which was also cited earlier this year regarding the removal of the two ObamaCare documents), BookBaby, Xlibiris or AuthorHouse.

Interestingly and thankfully, the WayBack Machine (i.e., Archive.org) has saved the Scribd upload:

Link:  April 9, 2013 Internet Archive

(NOTE: Pages saved with the WayBack Machine typically look remarkably handsome, quality reproductions, but it seems that archiving a page which contains an embedded PDF will not appear exactly as it appears in the original).

I also want to note here that several months ago I began saving, with the WayBack Machine, selected WOBIK blog reports. I also save pages from other websites if I judge them to be of significance and if I have reason to believe that that may be removed or edited.

Barack Obama, cloud computing and heating your home.

Lucas Daniel Smith Cedar Rapids Iowa

What is cloud computing? Should you be interested in learning more? What does this have to do with Barack Obama, the US Gov. and/or politics?

First, what is cloud computing?

According to Wikipedia…whatever people, way too confusing.

Google offers a more concise and easy to understand definition:

the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.

The following are three (3) very easy to understand examples from, and for, a regular guy like myself:

1.

On form of cloud computing that most of us have been using for many years is email (e.g., Hotmail and Yahoo).  Unless you download your emails they are stored online, in the cloud.

2.

Software which can no longer be purchased, tangibly owned or installed on your computer which is now only available for rent (or membership/subscription) online.  One example is Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud (released in 2013) .  You log in to your online account, work in the cloud and also save your work there.

Their last version which could purchased, tangibly owned and installed on your computer was CS6 (Creative Suite 6) which was released in 2012.

Personally, I believe software such as Adobe Photoshop has been copiously and abundantly used without license (cracked/patched versions available online at torrent sites) to the point that Adobe doesn’t have any other way to make a profit from their applications aside from now renting them in the cloud and completely doing away with traditional software.

3.

Salesforce.com Barack ObamaI used to work for Western Digital (one of the world’s largest, if not the largest, manufactures of computer hard drives) in their tech support department.

Western Digital does not have their own database for technical support records. 

They use a cloud database (there is no software) which is available (for rent) from a company called Salesforce Inc.

Western Digital employees in the tech support department use online accounts with Salesforce.com and all tech support records (e.g., names, addresses, credit card numbers, products model number, product serial numbers, issues) are stored in the cloud.

There are many other examples but I trust that the foregoing were relatively simple and easy to understand.

What are your thoughts (you, the person reading here at the WOBIK blog) regarding cloud computing?

Did you know that US Gov has legal access to anything in the cloud if it is stored on a server within the United States?  Furthermore, it is now the position of the US Gov that digital search warrants (not that one is needed) apply anywhere, even on severs abroad (e.g., Google & Microsoft have servers in Ireland – its cold there and that’s good for a heat producing server and helpful in reducing costs of cooling).

The US Gov can also legally confiscate information and digital property located on a sever in the United States.  All US companies (including places like Facebook, Microsoft, Microsoft Office 365, Adobe, HostGator, WordPress) are legally compelled to provide the US Gov with access to your personal information, data, records, work (e.g., word documents) and digital property.

How can they do that?: George W. Bush and his Patriot Act (2001).

What is the USA Patriot Act?  You always hear about but what is it?  USA Patriot Act in an acronym which stands for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism.

However, it’s not just the USA Patriot Act which gives the US Government legal access to your cloud computing activities.  Before the Patriot Act there was also the Stored Communications Act (1986) and also the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) (1978).

What’s all this got to do with Barack Obama?

A.

Barack Obama signed extensions for the Patriot Act in 2010 and 2011.

B.

Barack Obama and the White House advocate cloud computing.  According to the White House’s website (whitehouse.gov), in a 2010 article titled Moving to the Cloud, the first government-wide system to move (2010) to the cloud was Recovery.gov and that the move was part of the Administration’s overall efforts to cut waste and fix or end government programs that don’t work.

The same White House article also states that by using cloud services, the Federal Government will gain access to powerful technology resources faster and at lower costs.

The White House states that this frees them to focus on mission-critical tasks instead of purchasing, configuring, and maintaining redundant infrastructure.

In closing the White House states that the Obama Administration is committed to leveraging the power of cloud computing to help close the technology gap and deliver for the American people.

You’re sick of hearing about the ever so evil Obama (born in Kenya, btw) but keep in mind that it’s not all just about immigration, creating jobs, gay marriage, abortion and Benghazi.

There are all sorts of issues, ideas and technologies that the American people should be thinking about.  Some of these ideas and issues you may take issue with, others you may advocate and become a proponent of and look forward to their implementation.

Some of the ideas or issues may be ‘evil’ (i.e., just plain bad ideas) and some might have potential for good and prosperity.

I present cloud computing today as just on topic that should be considered when you are voting in 2016 and thereafter.  There are many other topics that should be considered, as well.

Btw, speaking of cloud computing, there is a German company Cloud & Heat.  They are using servers to heat the air in houses (and buildings) in Germany.  The severs can also be used to heat water for your sink and shower.

In Germany you can purchase a ‘cloud server cabinet’ from Cloud&Heat for the equivalent of approximately $15,000 US dollars and have it installed in your private residence. 

Apparently the price is essentially the same as that of a traditional heating system in Germany.

The cabinet is fireproof, locked and cannot be accessed (the hardware inside).

The heat generated from the enclosed severs is transferred to what is called a ‘buffer tank’ which is used to heat air handling system and water systems.

In the summer the unneeded heat can be dispersed outside of your house (or building) via a bypass.

Keep in mind that many countries in Europe (including Germany) have been, for a long time now, very apprehensive of the USA Patriot Act and are considering internet systems which only operate within Europe (or their nation) and/or requiring that all severs be located within in Europe (or their nation):

White House Turkey Pardon (2014): Elizabeth Lauten (works for US Congressman Stephen Fincher, R-TN) to resign today over criticism of Obama’s daughters.

It appears that Elizabeth Lauten will be resigning today.

Who is she?  She is (or was) the communications director for US Congressman Stephen Fincher (R-TN).

It appears that after Elizabeth Lauten watched Obama at the annual (2014) White House Turkey Pardon (an exceedingly solemn and somber event) she wasn’t very happy with the way that Malia and Sasha (Obama’s two daughters) were dressed and she didn’t like their demeanor either.  She’s also very troubled by the fact that Malia and Sasha made “faces” at the Turkey Pardon (what the fk?).

Elizabeth published her thoughts on Facebook:

Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the ‘good role model’ department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events.

First I’d like to say that I advocate the 1st Amendment and free speech.  Elizabeth Lauten has that right to publish her thoughts regarding the Turkey Pardon and the First Family.

I also find her intolerant-like remarks to be racist.  It appears that the First Family and their actions just may not be white enough for Elizabeth Lauten.

I remember in the early 1990s my father told my siblings and I that we were not to wear baggy jeans because that was black a thing.

Nowadays blacks wear tight jeans and it seems that most whites (aside from the very young generation and other trendy whites) are wearing baggy clothing (including my father).

In any event, I find Elizabeth Lauten to be racist (not that I give a crap what she is, racist or not racist).  However, her statement is fully and thoroughly covered by the 1st Amendment.

That being said, why would Lauten take the Turkey Pardon so seriously?  In my opinion there is nothing serious (televised event or not) about the Annual Turkey Pardon.

And what’s this about,At least respect the part you play.” Is there a part to play? Reminds of politicians and political commentators (especially white American ones) who preach out against drugs (Rush Limbaugh), or who advocate abstinence and family values (Mark Souder, R-IN), or Tom Ganley (married and father of 3) who was a candidate (R-OH) for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 and was indicted on seven counts of sexual imposition with a woman he met at a…Tea Party Rally!

Then there is Mark Sanford (R-SC).  In 2013 (last year) he won a special election for US Congressman (1st District) in South Carolina.

He also represented the same district in South Carolina from 1995 thru 2001.

As readers may know he was also Governor of South Carolina from 2003 thru 2011.

On June 24, 2009 he he publicly revealed that he had engaged in an extramarital affair with María Belén Chapur, a woman from Argentina.  (It should also be noted that he  misused state travel funds to conduct his affair.)

He once told his wife that he was hiking the Appalachian Mountain Trail when really and truly he was traveling to have sex with his mistress (María Belén Chapur) in Argentina.

Also, why did he confess on June 24th (2009)?

Because on June 25, La Nación, a Buenos Aires newspaper, identified an Argentine woman, María Belén Chapur, a 43 years of age divorced mother of two with a university degree in international relations, who lives in the city of Buenos Aires, as the woman who South Carolina Governor Mark Sandord was having an extramarital affair with.

Mark Sanford (Marshall Clement “Mark” Sanford, Jr. – born May 28th, 1960) met María Belén Chapur at a dance in Uruguay in the year 2001.

In any event, style changes.  It seems that ‘class’ was once depicted (until some point maybe in the 1960s?) by US Presidents wearing top hats and homburg hats.

I didn’t see anything that wasn’t classy, or anything that was disrespectful, in the video of the 2014 Annual Turkey Pardon at the White House.  Furthermore, since when is a Turkey Pardon supposed to be a stony-faced and humorless event?
