Recently, a friend of mine, Casey Whalen got a response to a FOIA request that was a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice. It has become necessary to file FOIA requests as we try to figure out what kind of government we have because they do not act as one expects an American government to act.

Who are the Treasure Valley Partners? When they began, they were a group of mayors and county commissioners. Ultimately they formed the Boise Metropolitan governing structure which is NOT a republican form of government.

So what we know now from Casey’s FOIA (above) is that they can hire Special Assistant US Attorneys to represent them. The FOIA below that is describing a forum that was put together includes a representative from the Navy. Why would they have a representative from the Navy when we are in the desert? International port jurisdictions. The way I put this together is that metropolitan areas are port jurisdictions which means international law is relevant. I have loads of supporting documentation.
Hurwit, interview with Boise State Public Radio
PRENTICE: Dr. King reminded us that combating hate in America was nothing new. That was in his lifetime. And now, a half century later, while the DOJ and the FBI are on the front lines of that fight, as you have through most of our nation’s history.
HURWIT: Absolutely. The DOJ, – Department of Justice – was founded during Reconstruction after the Civil War with the primary purpose of prosecuting the KKK and protecting the rights of black Americans and newly freed slaves. That was in the 1860s and the 1960s. The Department continued to work on civil rights and to again protect the rights of black Americans in the South. One of the images that stuck with me from my education and that still motivates me today is the image of four US Marshals who are DOJ employees walking Ruby Bridges to and from school. In that spirit, we continue our work. It affects all Americans. When you think about the DOJ’s mission of protecting the civil rights of every Idaho and every American.

The global transportation network is a military strategy behind a civilian face. It’s presented as being for commerce when it is in fact, for conquest.
