Hime's Outrageous Hypocrisy

Steven Greenhut: I almost fell out of my chair laughing at this piece by Rex Hime opposing some new land-use rules from the state of California. Hime is completely right about the foolishness of the proposed legislation, but Hime is president and CEO of the California Business Properties Association, which loves state-mandated land-use planning and lobbies heavily in favor of redevelopment. His organization has consistently opposed reforms to the state’s abuse of eminent domain. It favors subsidies and government planning. Basically, Hime and his group are for land use rules when they benefit him and his members and against land-use rules when they go against him and his members. Such unprincipled rent seeking is typical in Sacramento and government at all levels, but let’s at least dispense with all the pretense of making a stand on behalf of freedom. His commentary is titled, “Don’t Use Land Use As a Weapon Against Employers.” What he should call it is, “Let’s Use Land Use As a Weapon Against Small Employers And On Behalf of The Big Box Stores That Pay My Bills.”

People want to know why California Republicans are struggling. It’s because they have no principles. The party is filled with louts such as Hime who only champion principles when it benefits him personally. Had the Legislature proposed a nearly identical bill that screwed over small businesses on behalf of his clients, he would be championing it. No wonder poor folks, working-class folks and minorities have no interest in this party. Conservatives and libertarians and others who consistently champion freedom and fewer land-use rules ought to sit on the sidelines on these bills. Let the state’s big business community fight its own battles. Remember — they only care about principle when the principle cuts in their own financial favor.

    In 2018, 3 different police whistleblowers told us, the Gangstalking operations are run from the Fusion Centers. The details can be found in government reference documents in “The Governors of Gangstalking.”

    The Director of the Fusion Center in each state, is the criminal Boss for these operations. You might think of these people as a “mafia boss.”

    In my opinion, the people on this chart have led the Gangstalking Program for greater Los Angeles, for many years. The federal government calls it a Fusion Center.

    The people working at the JRIC assume, that if someone’s name appears on the Watchlist, the stalking and harrassment is justified, even if it is illegal. It never occurrs to these idiots to ask – “Should this person even be on the Watchlist?” or “Why is this person on the Watchlist?”

    Federal Judge Anthony Trenga, decided that the Watchlist is Unconstitutional, because the FBI failed to provide any shred of evidence, that someone was a “known or suspected terrorist.”

    Targeted Individuals are not terrorists. They are gangstalked because they are whistleblowers and political activists, etc. The CIA wants them silenced, and funds this program through the black budget.

    JRIC states that Infragard plays a important role in their operations. However, Infragard is little more than a privatized spying and stalking organization, in my opinion. This is done to avoid FOIA requests. Their people are recruited, trained, and tasked using the FBI’s “Confidential Human Sources Policy.”

    Infragard.org is a national organization. They are funded and controlled by the FBI. After they are established, they solicit donations from companies. The FBI assigns an agent to each of the Infragard offices. They have 66,000 members in the United States. This represents about half of the daily gangstalkers in the United States. Citizen Corps (DHS) and Neighborhood Watch also have significant member-stalkers. See their websites.

    The paranoid idiots at Infragard, believe that a terrorist is hiding behind every tree, and under every rock. The FBI cultivates this type of paranoid thinking, because it justifies a bigger budget every year. And it allows the FBI to avoid FOIA requests about the activity.

    Their supposed goal is to protect infrastructure. But you can’t accomplish “protection” by having meetings and talking about protection. You have to surveil someone – and that’s grossly illegal. There are stalking laws in every state. Where do they get the names from? – The FBI and the Fusion Center give them names and addresses from the FBI’s illegal Watchlist. Judge Anthony Trenga declared the Watchlist as Unconstitutional, because the FBI could not provide a shred of evidence, that someone was a “known or suspected terrorist.” This is how the patsies at Infragard are duped into performing the dirty work for the FBI.

    The Watchlist is not a list of terrorists. Most of the names on it are “Non-Investigative Subjects” (NIS). We can deduce that the FBI is a criminal organization, just like Ted Gunderson (former FBI Chief) and Geral Sosbee (former FBI agent – http://sosbeeVFBI.com/ ) have repeatedly stated.

    “The CIA and FBI are behind most, if not all terrorism.”
    – Ted Gunderson, former FBI Chief
