To: Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers
From: Glen R Stockwell, Citizen and Voter of the 5th District
President of the Washington State Economic Development Corp. NP
RE: My 2012 citizen’s request to you, to contact the other Washington State congressional leaders and request they join with you to form a bipartisan group called “The Washington State Green Team”. I am also requesting that you co-endorse a bipartisan contract for “Final Fast Track Phased Completion of the Columbia Basin Project” and take the contract to President Obama, requesting he sign an Executive Order for completion of President Franklin D Roosevelt’s Project.
President Elect Obama in 2007 ran with the on word "Change"!
The five words I will be using will be;
"Reunite America" with "Bipartisanship Projects"!
2009 Delivering My Proposal to Cathy
Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers / Cathy,
I have been waiting nearly 2 years for you to contact me about my project proposal. I must be honest with you; I have been wondering “Why hasn’t Cathy called me”? I don’t know!
I have always been taught not to be too critical of another person and to try and understand their path through life (Cathy’s). It is for that reason my wife (Deanie) and I took a trip from Ritzville to Kettle Falls this weekend (I have been there before) and drove around town, by your schools and also by your family home and farm the “Peachcrest Fruit Basket Orchard and Fruit Stand”. You and I both know Kettle Falls and Washington State are beautiful and I can see why you are very proud of your family and the small family farm you grew up on.
For those thousands of citizens who can’t drive by across the nation who are viewing my web. Kettle Falls, Washington and also So. Peachcrest Rd., are a “Norman Rockwell type Community”. Kettle Falls is a very quiet, safe, neighborly neighbors and beautiful location setting next to Lake Roosevelt (the Columbia River).
I also grew up in a small country community of Ahtanum near Yakima Washington and it had during the 1950’s about 400 citizens. It also was a “Norman Rockwell Community” and my parents gave me a lifetime gift of being raised in the country and also the additional gift of being great parents probably like your parents were Cathy.
I also see on your biography, you like to study history and I have also have studied history for many years. I also noticed during our drive through town, Kettle Falls has a “North Hill 210” Masonic Lodge.
History teaches Americans, we wouldn’t have a country called “the United States of America” unless Masons like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and countless others rose up to defeat the Monarchy of England! The Masons are the cornerstone of our country, and they had “to walk through fire” to give us the gift we have today. Sometimes we can only count on one hand the number of friends we have, which “we can see eye to eye with” while walking through life. It is my understanding there is proud and honorable Masons in both the Republican and Democratic parties today. I believe the Masons of today have been wrongly accused of helping the “One World Order Group” in defeating our Country! Because a Mason by the name of Kirk Danekas stated to me one day “Glen, they (US Citizens) think we (the Masons) are helping to over throw our nation”!
My Grandfather was a proud American and he was also proud to be a Mason and I know he was a “Good Man”! I have no doubt people are trying to overthrow our nation and we have had and currently have traitors in both parties who are members of those shadow groups! I hope and pray the Masons will once again come to the defense of the country, their forefathers helped create years ago! Most Democrats and Republicans are not the enemy of the United States, most are all true Americans!
Only a few traitors have been planted and they are in senior positions in both parties, and we need to throw them in “Getmo with the rest of the terrorist” no matter who they are, in my opinion!
It would seem to be a basic and sound belief, by most voters, that Washington State Congressional Representatives were sent to Washington DC to serve the needs of their constituents in Washington State. It would also seem to be common sense all Congressional leaders, from both sides of the aisle, should join together on aiding and assisting Washington State economic development projects that will benefit Washington for decades and centuries.
I realize there are politically correct procedures for voters to follow when requesting their congressional leader to act upon a request. I have been waiting for you to respond to my requests, the first in March 2009, November 2009, July 2010 (at the Adams County Farm Bureau Bar BQ when I gave my Project Proposal to Mike Poulson) and again when I traveled to DC in August 2011. At my last meeting with Mr. Murphy in your office in August of 2011; he spoke about how you and your office personnel have been on my web at www.washingtonstateeconomicdevelopment.com and what did I want to talk with about? He is young newly engaged and still learning. He smiled so I knew it was a tongue in cheek question (probably the Irish coming out). I specifically asked Mr. Murphy would your office work with other Democrat Congressional leaders from Washington State and he said "I think we would"!
I was in Congress the night the Health Bill passed along with a few other citizens from Washington State. When you took the podium and spoke before Congress, I listened very closely to what you spoke about and it is part of the Congressional record. Part of your discussion was “I have just returned from Spokane Washington and I attended a Public Meeting of about 800 concerned citizens / voters” and “I could see the fear in their eyes”! They are worried about their futures. You said "they need jobs and they don’t need to be burdened with the additional financial burden of this health bill"!
Cathy, I could see the compassion and empathy in your speech, when you spoke about the “fear in their eyes”. The voters and the unemployed need long term employment and “real answers to their needs” instead of empathy and compassion. You’re a mother also and when these other mothers need to feed their children they need food, clothing, and a dependable roof over their heads and a dependable job instead of a pat on the back and an “I understand what you are going through comment”. Speaker of the House John Boehner has over 500,000 unemployed citizens in Ohio! What is his answer to employ those citizens and the 12 + million unemployed US citizens?
Snip it’s from your Long Biography;
Member of Congress
In 2004, Cathy was elected to the U.S. House. During her first term, she served as the Freshman Class representative on the Steering Committee and on the Republican Whip Team.
During her second term, Cathy continued her commitment to working across party lines. She joined with Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) to introduce health IT legislation and led a statewide health IT task force to position Washington State for future health IT advancements. She also served as Co-Chair of the bipartisan Congressional Women's Caucus with Representative Lois Capps (D-CA).
During her third term (2009-2010), Cathy became a strong voice against the President’s spend, borrow, and bailout policies. She voted against the $700 billion Wall Street bailout, the $787 billion economic “stimulus” bill, and the $2.3 trillion health care bill. She championed a balanced budget amendment, a constitutional amendment to limit federal spending, and repealing the government takeover of health care and replacing it with practical solutions that actually lower medical costs and improve outcomes.
As she begins her fourth term, Cathy continues to fight for lower taxes to create jobs; bipartisan solutions to improve our schools; good stewardship of our farms and forests; and honoring America’s military and veterans. As a member of E&C, she is encouraging the use of American resources, including hydropower, and expanded use of alternative energies, to help us become energy independent.
Cathy, you have had plenty of time to come up with a real solution instead of empty Words and even local Republicans are making the same comments! In March 2009 when we met in your office, I told you “I believe many of our country’s leaders have risen to the seats of leadership and they are actually followers setting in the seats of leaders with no idea of how to solve the Nations problems”!
Use your National Republican position to bring this project to
Washington. Lead or step down for the future well being of state and the unemployed!
Get the Money Cathy and bring this Project to Washington State!
I have offered to help you with my project proposal! The citizens and voters of the 5th District have been investing their money in you since 2004. In business there is a term “Return on Investment.” I believe it is time for Washington voters to get a "Return on their Investment in you." They have been waiting long enough for you to lead, in my opinion!
Cathy, are you going to get started or do you need to be replaced with someone else who really is a leader? I believe you are a nice person with some very good qualities, but it is time for a real plan that works! What is your plan Cathy? I am not trying to beat you up, but I am trying to spur you into doing the right thing for Washington State and the Nation!
Roosevelt was a real leader who came to the seat of power during the “Great Depression” when there were over 5,000 banks failing. Currently we are at approx. 289 national failures, 3 in the 5 district! Investment bankers on Wall Street were jumping out of windows; citizens were on soup lines, with “real answers”, home, business and farm foreclosures! Washington State is a testimony to one of Franklin’s visions and history proves he was right! If Franklin hadn’t created the “Volunteer Social Security System”, today we would have had 44 million more citizens unemployed (who paid yearly into the Social Security System for many years) who are currently on Social Security across our nation looking for jobs instead of 12 million!
Social Security is NOT an Entitlement! Social Security is a savings account for citizens when they become elderly! It was supose to be in a "Locked Box Trust Fund" and wasn't to be used on wars and etc. until Lyndon B Johnson opened it up and it hasn't been closed since Nam!
The failure of the Social Security System have been past Presidents,Congress and traitors in both parties!
I see you standing with the other Republican Leaders in the national news and the Washington State Republican Party believe you are in a position of leadership to resolve Washington’s current and future economic problems. Cathy, what is your answer? Glen’s answer has always been a proven state and national winner! It is time to complete President Franklin D Roosevelt’s “Entire Columbia Basin Project” and we can do it without any new taxesand employ thousands!
Washington State is a great National Investment and this project has a 60+ year success! Roosevelt was right then and I am right now! I am offering today to help you again with my plan!
Cathy, remember when you sold apples at your small family farm? You’re in a position of leadership today to take this project to Speaker of the House John Boehner and the other house members and sell both parties on “this is the project we should invest the people’s money in”! Cathy, I have offered to help you and the other Washington State Representatives the future " Washington State Green Team”!
I have researched all of the Washington State Representatives while I have been waiting for your return phone call! I can tell you Washington State is blessed with good people on both sides of the aisle and there are no traitors among them (I have met most of them personally)!
Cathy, projects are about two things “Power and Money” or “Money and Power”! Now for the 2nd time in Washington State’s history we have both before us at the same time! The real question is will the Washington State leaders act as one body or keep arguing?
1st requirement to a Successful Project is Money!
In December 2011 a Jobs Bill was passed (Cathy, I am sure you helped with it) and nearly a Trillion Dollars is due to be spent on projects across our country. Washington State currently has 11 Congressional leaders and all of you are charged with coming up with real answers to our State’s unemployment, depressed economic markets and Billion dollar state deficit.
Nearly a Trillion Dollars for New Investments!
2nd Alternative Funding Method is Money!
The Gates Foundation
As you know on June 15, 2011 I asked the Gates Foundation to consider becoming a financial partner in the completion of the Columbia Basin Project!
In the Forbes Magazine Special Edition dated October 11, 2011.
Mr. Buffett said "If you're succeeding all the time in philanthropy, your projects are too easy. Look for things that are more important and where you may fail".
3rd Alternative Funding Method is Money!
Glen’s proposal to Mark Schoesler 1999 – 2009, Governor Locke, and Governor Gregoire 2005 – Still offered never given!
I asked Governor Gregoire to use her legal abilities to develop a Non-Revocable Trust Account and sign a Performance Based Consultant’s contract and I would direct her to the money! Governor Gregoire said in 2005 and again in 2009 she had retired from the legal profession!
I didn’t want the targeted money to go into the Multi-Billion Dollar General Fund Deficit. I guess like the 5 Billion Dollar State Tobacco Settlement was thrown away into the Black hole (most Washingtonian’s still don’t know where the 5 Billion went) instead of being correctly invested into this project!
At least Christine did something correct when she and others put the Weber Siphon in, but it took 6 years instead of 2 years!
2nd requirement to a Successful Project is
Power of Teamwork!
2012 Washington State’s Bipartisan Green Team
Cathy, I have been asked by many citizens “Glen, is Cathy helping you on this promotion”? They go on to say “Glen, it was the correct project to help Washington State during the Great Depression and it’s the correct project to resolve the current recession and put citizens back to work today and it will help for centuries to come”!
Cathy, I respectfully do not know what to tell them after waiting nearly 2 years?!
To date only Senator Patty Murray, Senator Maria Cantwell and Congressman Inslee have been the only 3 Washington leaders to respond to my proposal! As you know in May of 2011 Senator Murray forwarded my proposal to President Obama! Patty told me, “Glen you needed to come up with the money to pay for it”!
I have had a method for over 19 years originally taking it to Governor Locke, next to Governor Gregoire and then in 2009 to Congress and President Obama.
Snip it; my 12/19/11 personal request to Congressman Jay Inslee (referring to Rep. Cathy McMorris);
As a citizen and voter in her congressional district, I haven’t even received a polite phone call or any written communications from her or her office. Mr. Inslee, I believe you have visited my website at www.washingtonstateeconomicdevelopment.com and have seen my request, published for over 2 years.
It is my understanding; a citizen has the right, if and when a citizen is not heard from their own district representative, they can then take their request to another congressional leader, requesting action. Representative Inslee, you might also know that when I ran for state representative of the 9 district (3 times) on this issue, thousands of Washington voters have supported my proposal.
As you or your staff read over this proposal, you will notice I have shown “Due Diligence” in trying to bring this “public works project” to the 300,000 unemployed Washington voters (as you know they need immediate help).
I know this project will help Washington State’s sagging economy via billions of dollars and the employment for the unemployed workers and the thousands of veterans who have honorably served our country.
In the past, Washington State Legislative team has joined together on some issues. The time when Murray, Hastings, Inslee, Larsen, Dicks, Reichert and McMorris united, forgetting party differences. The unlikely bipartisan duo – Democratic Sen. Patty Murray and GOP Rep. Doc Hastings united and wrote a letter signed by 91 members of Congress urging the U.S. Dept. of Energy not to abandon Yucca Mountain in Nevada as a dumping ground for nuclear waste.
Representative Inslee, I am asking you to be my leader, my spokesperson and will you become the lead player on my proposal and help form the bipartisan “Washington State Green Team” and take my Washington State Economic Development proposal to President Obama?
Glen R Stockwell
Cathy, I had a meeting with Colin Hastings (he is a Republican) on March 5, 2011 and by May 2011 he wrote this great article about completing the Columbia Basin Project!
May 2011 Article Written by Colin Hastings
Vp Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce
Cathy, maybe you didn’t hear about my meeting with the Grant County Republican PCO’s and their vote taken to support my proposal and have a letter written to Congressman Doc Hastings and also to President Obama explaining they supported “Glen’s Project Proposal”? I have a verbatim tape of the meeting and also Emails written by the Grant County Republican Chair Dani Bolyard! The majority of the PCO’s voted 10-8 in favor, the Chair, Vice Chair and Alice Parker were out voted!
Snip it from Cathy’s Long Biography;
Cathy was the first person in her family to attend and graduate from college. She worked her way through Pensacola Christian College in Florida(Class of 1990) and later earned her Executive MBA from the University of Washington (Class of 2002).
I realize like most Christians we aren’t supposed to talk about Christianity in America today! I don’t plan on conforming to new idea or rule. “Real American’s” have a 1st amendment right to speak! I see you also have spent time learning from the “Good Book”! My Mom played a large role in initiating my Christian beliefs being brought up in the Catholic Church and later I was double dipped a Baptist.
Cathy, I would like to compare a Bible Story to “today’s politics in America”. I am sure you are aware of King Solomon (since you went to a Christian College) and the story about the one mother losing her child to crib death and swapping the dead child for another Mothers live infant. After the child was taken to King Solomon’s court to determine which Mother the infant belonged to, King Solomon told the guards to hold the child up and he took his sword out intending on cutting the child in half. The woman who stole the child said "cut him in half" and Solomon drew his sword back and the real Mother said "no don’t kill the baby give it to her instead"! After hearing this Solomon stopped and told the guards to give the child to the real Mother who wanted to stop the death of the baby.
The large majority of the Republican Party and Democratic Party members profess to be Christians. Both parties profess to “love our country”, but they are figuratively grabbing hold of “Our Country’s Flag” (the baby) and they are tearing our country apart!
Cathy, in my opinion, You and the other Washington State Congressional Leaders should lead "Our Nation" in a new era of Bipartisan Projects to bring America back to the most productive nation on Earth!
The United States is in comparison to the Roman Empire is in "it's infancy as a nation", since our break away from the British Monarchy.
The British Monarchy has spent the last 2 centuries trying to defeat the United States by undermining, infiltrating Congress, assassinating the Presidents we have elected to office and placing Presidential Puppets into the Presidency(who represent the Crown)! They never went away and they are currently one of the “third parties” who are causing members of both parties to fight against each other by using the press to move their “final retaking of America” forward and they have nearly accomplished their goal!
But in my opinion these Washington State Democrats are Countrymen & Countrywomen & Patriots! They are serving their country with honor and they also have Original Birth Certificates to prove they are real Americans!
I believe you can trust their motivesand their true sincerity to help Washington State, with this project completion!
Both Parties know the Basin Project is a great national investment!
Senator Maria Cantwell and Senator John McCain tried to point out to the nation we needed to put “Glass Steagall” back into force again and many wouldn’t support their Bipartisan Leadership effort! In my opinion we need to go back to the mistake of President Wilson (he apologized to the nation before he stepped down from office).
Most citizens realize today because of we are well educated and we currently have the freely uncontrolled internet. Recessions &/or “Great Depressions” are brought on by the Federal Reserve (a private Corporation) and their managing directors! This private Corporation controls monetary systems all around the world and they are causing this current world monetary collapse!
Washington State and the nation were lucky to have during one of those manipulated Depressions an American President who knew how to gain bipartisan support for all of his projects and visionary public support systems.
Cathy, I know Franklin D. Roosevelt had dark issues, but his legacy of positive accomplishments in my opinion outweigh the negatives.
Cathy, I have recently heard President Obama proclaim he was one of Americas “Greatest Presidents”. History will no doubt reveal his accomplishments and his also his failures. All of us can always claim to be leaders, but true leaders lead with wisdom, action and history records their results! Personally, I believe he has over reached in stating his accomplishments while in office to date. But maybe he will prove me wrong and have the wisdom Franklin had and sign an “Executive Order for Fast Track Phased Completion of the Columbia Basin Project”?
Time will tell and history will record weather he is a true leader or not!
Cathy, if you would help in the formation of the "Washington State Green Team"and "help draft a Bipartisan Contract" (get both Parties on one page) and take it to President Obama. We will find out what history will say about his leadership!
Cathy, did you know history reveals the Democrat and the Republican parties were a party of "ONE" years ago?
Cathy, on December 25 2011 I sent a proposal to you, the other Washington State Representatives and also President Obama. You can go to my web at www.washingtonstateeconomicdevelopment.com and click on the tab on the left hand side marked 12-25-11 Req. Employ the Vets! It is a request to use the returning War Veterans on construction of this project. It will give long term jobs to the vets and it will lower the overall cost and it will speed up the construction of 1st Inland Reservoir and the 4 additional Inland Reservoirs and the needed feeder canals (My Non-Profit Company will be helping to construct), in my opinion! If you help aggressively on my proposed project?! I believe the other Washington Rep’s will help you!
My brother in-law Eugene M Freer is the recipient of the Bronze Star and a Proud Vet. Gene and other National Vets fully understands "these Vets" were given a job to fight in these wars (right or wrong) and the nation owes them the chance to be the 1st to apply for these new project jobs, just like the returning Vets of World War 11 were given priority to own 160 acres of the original project!
Cathy, with your committee assignments past and future, plus Doc Hastings, Dave Reichert, Jaime Herrera Beutler committee assignments the Republican Party can work aggressively with Senator Murray and the other Democrats who set on very important committee’s to Fast Track Phased Completion of “my bipartisan project” and Speaker of the House Mr. John Boehner can trust his fellow “Countrymen”!
Cathy’s Committee Work
At the start of the 112 Congress, Cathy was appointed to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Serving on “E&C” enables Cathy to be an even more effective and powerful advocate for Eastern Washington families because the Committee covers a wide variety of issues, including broadband, health care, and energy – all of which are critical to Washington’s Fifth District.
In fact, E&C has one of the broadest jurisdictions in Congress. It oversees five cabinet departments and seven independent agencies, including the Departments of Energy, Transportation, Health and Human Services, and the Environmental Protection Agency. About half of all legislation pertaining to the economy must pass through E&C.
When I was growing up on my parents’ farm, I could never have imagined that one day I would have the opportunity to serve in Congress. And as we bring 2011 to a close – and begin a new year with new hope – I wanted to thank you for giving me that opportunity. This most recent year has been full of challenges
– especially on the economic front
– but also full of achievements
– Especially on matters that directly affect Eastern Washington.
Please see below for some of our highlights from 2011. This isn’t a comprehensive list; it’s merely a list of highlights. And I’m already looking forward to even more highlights in 2012.
In This Issue…
Working for Jobs & Economic Growth
Cathy, it is my opinion! You and the Washington State Republican leaders currently have one of the “largest historical opportunities” to prove to the nation whether or not President Obama really wants to work on a “Joint Bipartisan Project”or not!
If, the Republican Party doesn’t believe this project is worth investing some of those Billions of dollars in, I guess he will be able to prove his comments on youtube “They (the Republican's won’t work with me”!
If, President Obama doesn’t want to invest in it, the Republicans will have proven President Obama isn't willing to work with the Republican Party on a "Great Proven National Public Works Project".
If, Money is the only issue holding you and the Republican Party and the Democrat Party back? I will show you how we can pay for it with pre-existing Revenues! It’s a “Win Win” proposal!
Let’s find out if he is sincere or not?! And take my Bipartisan Proposal to him!
On Sunday January 1, 2012 my wife (Deanie) and I attended Church in Lind Washington at the Lind Calvary Assembly of God. Our Pastor Steve Schofstoll spoke about the “Year of Jubilee” and how he and Kim (his wife) were praying 2012 would be a “Year of Jubilee” for the assembly members, Washington State, the Nation and the World!
We are a country based on prayers and miracles of people fleeing oppression and this would be a great example of a “Common Man” (Glen) being allowed to serve his country one more time honorably, by being given the opportunity to succeed with his project and give my gift to the Nation!
Cathy, would you please help me and the 5 District on my proposal?
