Obama’s federal agency NOAA is no Noah’s Ark.
Pronounced like Noah, the federal agency NOAA stands for National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency. NOAA’s funding is authorized by the Department of Commerce.
Per how NOAA recently acts as judge, jury and prosecutor against people using the resources of Monterey Bay — huge fines for jet ski users and criminal charges against a biologist for feeding large fish — it may be the right time that the public jerked NOAA’s funding to a standstill?
Interestingly, Democrat congressman Sam Farr refuses to comment on NOAA and has refused to go on a local radio program, KSCO 1080 radio, to discuss NOAA.
Sam Farr is the same Democrat congressman who, when he held four Town Meetings on health care, stated at the beginning that he was there to tell the public that he was going to vote for Obama Care. Sam Farr was not there to listen – he was there to tell the public what he was going to do.
Let’s look at the considerable differences between Noah’s Ark and NOAA’s Mission:
You know the Biblical story: Under God’s direction, Noah built an Ark and put on board two of every kind of animal. When the world flooded, the animals were safe on board the high seas until, finally, a little bird brought back a leaf. The leaf signaled to Noah that land was near and life could go on. And God gave to people the rainbow as a sign that never again would God flood the earth with water.
Today we have NOAA to save the animals, fish, birds and everything from the bottom of the sea all the way to the sun. What a huge charge. And what huge powers turned over to Obama’s political appointees who run NOAA.
Note that NOAA operates under the Commerce Department. According to the 1942 Supreme Court case of Wickard v Filburn, the Commerce Department can set quotas forbidding a farmer to grow wheat used for his own consumption.
It is that same Supreme Case – Wickard v Filburn — that President Obama will use to defend Obama-Care’s mandate that all individuals must purchase health insurance.
This is the Mission Statement listed on NOAA’s website:
“NOAA’s mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and to conserve and manage our coastal and marine resources.”
Below is information from the NOAA web site stating that NOAA has fined boat owners for exceeding 10 MPH rule NOAA imposed.
How best to rein in NOAA’s power? Cut off their funding. Re-write their Mission statement.
Santa Cruz and Monterey need a Citizen Patriot to replace Democrat Sam Farr. Who might be that citizen patriot? Send suggestions to: DrCameronJackson@gmail.com

Three vessels charged with violating Right Whale ship strike reduction rule pay penalties
Speed restrictions in seasonal management areas reduce risk of death to endangered whales
January 10, 2012
Three large commercial vessels who were assessed civil penalties this fall for violating seasonal speed limits designed to protect one of the most endangered whale species in the world have paid their penalties in full. Cases against six other vessels for the same offense are still open.
The ship strike reduction rule, enacted in December 2008, restricts vessels of 65 feet or greater to speeds of 10 knots or less in seasonal management areas along the East Coast to reduce the chances of North Atlantic right whales being injured or killed by ships.
Notices of Violation and Assessment (NOVAs) were issued Nov. 21 by the NOAA Office of General Counsel’s enforcement section to owners and operators of vessels that allegedly traveled multiple times through the seasonal management areas at speeds well in excess of the 10 knots allowed under the regulations.
The alleged violations occurred between November 2009 and January 2011 outside of New York City; Charleston, S.C.; Brunswick, King’s Bay and Savannah, Ga.; and Mayport, Fla.
One vessel was charged with 16 counts of speeding. Vessels’ documented speeds ranged from 13 to 18 knots, and the vessels traveled these speeds for as many as 26 nautical miles.
Right whale and calf
Each count in the NOVAs was assessed at $5,750, resulting in total penalty assessments ranging from $11,500 to $92,000. None of the vessels receiving NOVAs had prior violations.
The owners and operators had 30 days to respond either by paying the penalty, seeking to have it modified, or requesting a hearing.
Compliance with this rule is critically important for preventing right whale extinction. Ship strikes are the leading source of human-caused mortality for right whales, and together with entanglements in nets, are slowing the recovery of this critically endangered species.
Biologists believe that there are as few as 396 right whales left in the North Atlantic Ocean. Right whales are protected by the Endangered Species Act of 1973 and the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972. The death of even one whale can be devastating to the right whale population. NOAA estimates that a female right whale will need to give birth to four healthy calves over her lifetime to successfully replace herself within the population.
The mission of NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement is to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations enacted to conserve and protect our nation’s marine resources. To report a suspectedF violation, contact Enforcement’s national hotline at 1-800-853-1964.
