From the February 2008 Idaho Observer:
Idaho water grabber elevated to internationalists’ water boy
The water plot continues to thicken. Both houses of Congress quietly introduced bills to nationalize the water last year. Interior Secretary Kempthorne is developing plans to inventory the "national" water resource. In order for the federal government to justify the authority to send out survey forms and trespass on allegedly private properties to inventory the nation’s water resource, the Bush administration must first expand the scope of its water jurisdiction from navigable waterways only to include every single drop of water under, on and above the incorporated several states. Though the federalization of water bills in both congressional houses (HR 2421 was introduced May 22, 2007 and is currently in committee; S. 1870 was introduced July 25, 2007), they appear at this time to be going nowhere. Now that we know a cabinet-level plan is in place to federalize water, we can expect that, at some strategic moment, with backing from the White House and likely complicity from Congress, the bills will sail through and be signed by the president.
The World Bank’s Water Policy agenda, it seems, is going forward at a rather accelerated pace all of a sudden. Since the national debt now exceeds $9 trillion, our world banking creditors are getting impatient and want to get our collateralized assets, water included, in proper form for collection. For over a decade, the U.S. Bureau of the Census has been mailing out the "American Community Survey" to target locations across the nation. The survey is really the inventory of America requiring respondents to list and describe their assets, properties and answer personal questions about family members’ education levels, job skills and employment status—a tool to aid the collateralized asset collection on Americans’ real and personal property.
Irresponsible government debt-spending takes on a new meaning when you realize Americans’ property is the security on $trillions in loans to state and federal governments that employ public officials who enjoy immunity from liability even though their institutionalized fiscal irresponsibility has accrued for their constituents a level of indebtedness from which they are not expected to recover.
