“I-N-D-O-C-T-R-I – Nation,
By Mike Jackson
you ever wondered how we arrived where we are today as recreational
anglers on the Gulf Coast? You know the feeling I’m talking about,
when your stomach gets all tied in knots as soon as the thought of
our fishing rights come to mind?
you just left a Gulf Council meeting thinking that “your voice has
been heard” and “surely with all the data we presented to the
contrary, no logical person or government would carry through with
such a punitive curtailment in take”. Or, “there’s just no way they
would shorten the season and reduce our take due to “overfishing”
when we can’t even get past the Red Snapper to other targeted
species due to their massive populations and their voracious
appetite for our bait” only to have them make a completely opposite
decision without regard to public testimony.
Joplin articulated it well back in the day – “Take another little
piece of my heart now, baby”!
that is exactly what is happening!
Webster dictionary describes “indoctrination” (the title of this
to instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology, etc., esp. to
imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view.
Here is what is really going on.
been slowly, steadily and methodically indoctrinated by
environmental extremist groups in this country and for that matter,
around the world for many, many years. The goal of these
organizations is to impose upon us their specific ideologies and to
gain control over our lives utilizing methods that become deeply
rooted over time. These groups are duty-bound to deliver the desired
results of their donor’s, regardless of the effect that it has on
our way of life.
example de jour of this indoctrination process is the current
attention now being placed on becoming “Green”. We arrived where we
are today through the same steadied process of making us feel like
idiots if we don’t replace all of our light bulbs with those
stupid-looking, mercury-filled, hazardous waste creating, curly-cued
mini-florescent bulbs and, “what will the neighbors think if I
don’t buy those hemp-looking re-useable grocery totes” – so we stop
wasting our nations resources be it “paper or plastic”?
Environmental extremist groups could care less who they put out of
business or that you no longer have the right to take fish from your
surrounding waters for your personal consumption. What they do
care about is continuing to develop problems and crisis situations
that only they can fix and they conveniently position themselves at
the top of the food-chain and money-flow as the “Opinion Leaders in
the Industry”. You see, this is how they derive their continued
income. If you think that there isn’t a concerted effort to create
a new “green economy” that they can manage and capitalize upon,
think again. It’s well under way and there are thousands of “green”
organizations cropping up to grab as much of your money (TARP money)
as they can! Expect to see more and more problems surfacing that
will need to be “fixed” only by stepping up our “ green efforts” and
giving more and more of our hard-earned “green dollars”. But guess
who is best suited to manage this greening-up process? Why of course
the already-green start-up company that “discovered” the problem in
the first place.
our Nation’s largest environmental groups is Pew Charitable Trusts
and its many divisions and subsidiaries including Pew Environmental.
They are a giant, well funded, well oiled machine that is working
day-and-night to fill the void of missing information about the
status of our U.S. Fisheries just “a little piece at a time” with
their version of truth. More on this in future articles but I want
to point out a recent event that you may find interesting. Sport
Fishing Magazine interviewed Josh Reichart, Managing Director Pew
Reichart however, is not only the managing director of Pew
Environmental (with emphasis on “the protection of the global marine
environment”), but what the article does not tell you is that he was
also either the chief architect of or the founder of the following
the National Environmental Trust, SeaWeb, Earth Force, the Ocean Law
Project, the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, Clear the Air, the
Campaign for America’s Wilderness, the Pew Institute for Ocean
Science, the Ocean Wildlife Campaign, and the Pew Oceans Commission.
don’t want to get on a rant here but my suspicion is that Mr.
Reichart is very adept at creating crisis and even more adept at the
crisis management that ensues utilizing the vast Pew resources that
shed more light on Pew and its tentacles in coming articles but
suffice it to say that their ties to the U.S. Department of Commerce
are immense, and their input into the recent Red Snapper and Grouper
regulations cannot be ignored.
