“SAINT” MARK HATFIELD WALK ON WATER?
September 3, 2011
As anticipated, the local papers have been printing many articles by friends, journalists and colleagues of Oregon’s beloved “Saint” Mark and the 8/9/2011 Salem Statesman Journal editorial said we would be wise to emulate Hatfield and reassert his political and personal principles. The longest-serving senator in state history, he was simultaneously that larger-than-life worldwide politician and the down-to-earth Oregonian who not only remembered constituents’ names but also genuinely enjoyed chatting with them.
Of all those writing accolades about “Saint” Mark who were familiar to me, Timothy Walch, director emeritus of Herbert Hoover Presidential Library West Branch, Iowa was totally unfamiliar but his 8/21/2011 article was like manna falling from Heaven. Walch said he knew Hatfield for more than 20 years. He said the last Hoover man – meaning Hatfield – passed away on August 7 but he felt all the tributes thus far failed to mention Hatfield’s passion for the values and virtues of Herbert Hoover, FDR’s predecessor.
That 1932 election reminded me of the 2008 presidential election. Although Republican George W. Bush was history and no longer running, people were saying “Anybody but Bush!” And I’m hearing this mantra again from liberals, “I’m upset with Obama and his policies but anybody but a Republican because the next Republican president will appoint a conservative Supreme Court judge who will help to repeal Roe –vs- Wade, created, of course, in the first place under false pretenses in 1973. And here you have the crux of the ostensible two-party system.
The 12/8/2008 New American (JBS) wrote that in 1966, Georgetown Professor Carroll Quigley’s monumental Tragedy and Hope became available. He explains how the Council on Foreign Relations controls both parties. The Republicans are allowed to cater to the right on a few issues (pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-military, pro-business) while the Democrats cater to the left pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-gun, anti-war, pro-union). With either John McCain, a veteran CFR member or Barack Obama happily surrounded by CFR members, the network identified by Quigley could proceed with nary a worry towards its new world order goal.
Walch also added, “You read that right. Mark Hatfield, the very definition of a liberal Republican, was a lifelong champion of one of the most reviled presidents of the 20th century. In fact Hatfield once told me that Hoover was the inspiration for his own life of public service. It was Hoover that in August 1947 approved Hatfield’s master’s thesis on the president’s conservation policies.” This may help to understand why Oregon’s once vibrant timber communities are now ghost towns due to the spotted owl, and no one in powerful positions like Hatfield’s, are fighting on behalf of the timber industry in Washington, D.C.
In July 1983 hearings were being held on areas to be designated as wilderness and Hatfield said “We’ve got to have something between the chainsaw and the lock up.” This remark, of course, was indicative of a classic compromise. In a 10/5/1983 letter to me regarding the differences he had with Secretary of the Interior, James Watt, over conservation issues, he mentioned our Constitution embodies a clear separation of powers that gave the President (Reagan) the responsibility for executing our laws and choosing cabinet members to help him in fulfilling these duties. I had a “I know Watt’s right” bumper sticker on my car when I went to Eugene, Oregon (college town) and was given the finger. Hatfield wrote to assure me he would continue carefully scrutinizing the pro-development policies of Secretary Watt. Rather than accommodate the watermelons (red on the inside, green on the outside), who eventually pressured Watt to resign, he should have told Washington, D.C. the heavy hand of government intervention in Oregon’s timber industry was hurting his state and to butt out! The environmental wackoes prevailed at the great expense of free enterprise and the Pacific Northwest’s economy.

In 1983 the Lake County’s five sawmills were only operating at about 50 percent of capacity and the wilderness legislation like H.R. 1149 “could be the straw that breaks the back of a mill or two,” said Michael L. Rice, a forester with a Lakeview lumber company. At that time there had already been a 19-year-old deadlock over the wilderness question. Hatfield had been elected to the Senate in 1966 to represent constituents in the State of Oregon and in 1980 he became Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee but lost in 1986 when Democrats regained majority in the Senate but he remained top Republican. In 1990 he won a fifth term against Lonsdale and knew he was going to retire in 1996. In 1994 he became chairman of Appropriations again when Republicans won a majority in the Senate. Instead of trying to redeem himself from his “nay” on a balanced budget amendment noted below and using his bully pulpit his last two years, if he so desired, he could have threatened to cut off funding to some of these dictatorial regulatory administrative agencies controlled by unelected and unaccountable certifiable nincompoops, but he chose instead to secure legislation designating 500,000 acres known as Opal Creek in Oregon as Federal wilderness area which he first introduced in 1979.
Hatfield’s Democrat opponent in 1989, Harry Lonsdale, said Hatfield’s environmental record was abysmal and wrong on timber. And here we are today. A 3/30/2010 said Oregon was one of five states with pockets of high unemployment the Obama Administration was targeting for Mortgage assistance to the tune of $88 million for economic distress. Many were rural and hurt by lost jobs in the timber and wood products and as I draft this article, Oregon’s forests are once again burning, homes are being evacuated and many campgrounds closed for the Labor Day weekend. Owls are not very good stewards of the land and they make poor forest managers so our forests burn. People from the U.S. heartland to the east coast are totally unaware of how many thousands of acres we in the west have in wilderness and how it ties in with pagan worship mentioned in the Bohemian Grove material below.
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh on 8/29/2011 said the UK Guardian was predicting “Aliens May Destroy Humanity to Protect Other Civilizations,” say scientists. II Thessalonians 2:11 came to my mind about strong delusions and then I Thessalonians 4:16-18 in the Bible:
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we that are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Recently Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Cal) with a 20% Constitutional voting record said the Tea Party folks could go to Hell. In a well- orchestrated attempt to further vilify the Tea Party folks, along comes Congressman Andrew Carson (D-Ind.) with a 10% Constitutional voting record claiming the Tea Party folks want black people hanging from trees and isn’t it interesting that blacks in the districts of these two liberals have the highest unemployment? The big cities, the political strongholds of liberalism, were supposed to be laboratories for the Great Society expansion of the welfare state. Instead, cities became the principal victims of liberal ideology. To his credit Tea Party Congressman Alan West (R-Fla) with a 100% Constitutional voting record chastised members of his Black Caucus saying,” When you start using words such as lynching, that’s a very reprehensible word and I think we should move away from using that type of language and I have to tell you, one of the things I’m starting to think about is reconsidering my membership in the Congressional Black Caucus.”
The Tea Party is a thorn in the side of the progressive’s communist agenda. For the first time since I’ve been involved in politics, the Tea Party folks are causing the liberals much consternation. So if one of these days the blessed hope Christians long for in I Thes. 4, the liberals will be shouting hallelujahs to the aliens for ridding the earth of the Tea Party troublemakers.
Limbaugh reminded his listeners that it was the southern Democrats that did the lynching of those they feared might vote Republican. Michael Savage in his 2006 book The Political Zoo said Senator Robert Byrd, the White-Hooded Rat from West Virginia, has been called “the conscience of the Senate,” and the “the soul of the Democratic Party.” Like Oregon’s “Saint” Republican Senator Mark Hatfield who is receiving since his August death an exorbitant amount of accolades for his 50 years in public service, Byrd likewise was venerated by his fellow Democrats who “chalked his membership in the KKK to his twenties as his ‘youthful indiscretion.’” Not only did he belong to the Klan but also actually recruited over 150 men to form a local chapter, eventually rising to the level of “Grand Kleagle.” Imagine that, writes Savage. The Democratic Party’s poster child for conscience spent more time under a hood than Mr. Goodwrench! And as I noted in Part I about Hatfield he felt no loyalty to the country that offered him so much and his name can be found on the Declaration of Interdependence along with 125 Congressmen that violated their Oath of Office by signing this document calling for the establishment of a New World Order.
Byrd was “Pope of Pork” and like Hatfield always brought the bacon home. They both spoke admiringly of the Constitution but like the white wedding dress that often flies under false colors, their Constitutional voting records failed miserably. This failure is their true and empty legacy; however, the names of these narcissistic cronies can be found engraved in many prominent places, street signs and buildings in their respective states. In addition, Hatfield’s name is on Maryland’s National Institute of Health Clinical Research Center.
Walch said Hatfield and Hoover stayed in contact by letter over the next 15 years. They also met several more times in person, and after all the mention of Hatfield’s pristine 50 years in government, I was shocked to learn that one of the most notable meetings took place in 1959 when Hatfield was Hoover’s guest at the closely-guarded Bohemian Grove encampment which is described as the “Greatest Men’s Party on Earth.” Alex Jones became the first journalist to capture and expose video of the bizarre, Luciferian ceremonies. The international powerful elite gather annually for that last two weeks in July at the notorious Bohemian Grove to privately assemble, participate in occult activities and plan our destiny. They’ve been gathering at this 2700 acre redwood retreat on the Russian River in Sonoma County, Cal. since its founding in 1872. So much for all that “values and virtues” talk. If I were the devil, I’d have myself a Bohemian Grove where I could film the rich and famous in despicable acts that could be used against them if and when they ever tried to expose my New World Order. Not wanting the men to get ahead of them, influential women have formed the Belizian Grove in New York.

The Statesman said maybe it’s fitting that Hatfield died the day after a week of vicious acrimony about the federal debt had consumed our nation’s capital because he couldn’t stand that ideologically rigid, “us vs. them” style of politics but isn’t that what our Constitution demanded of elected officials? Checks and balances based on the Constitution and not on feelings or emotions and isn’t that what the Tea Party is all about? Accountability or so we thought? The best thing that could happen in America is gridlock in Washington, D.C. But what seems to be missing in all this is the fact Congress gave up some of its powers years ago and Senator Mark Hatfield voted against the proposed Constitutional Amendment requiring a balanced budget and it failed by one vote to reach the two-thirds majority needed for passage. He was criticized by younger Republicans and offered to resign from the Senate, but then-Majority leader Bob Dole said, “That’s not an option.” We wouldn’t be in the financial pickle we are today and there would not have been any “acrimony about the federal debt limit” that consumed so much of the nation’s capital if that amendment had passed.
If any Hatfield supporters find me in error in this reporting, please let me know so I might make the correction in the next article.
