Way to go kids! You did it.



Last week GM announced a $35 million march towards ALL E V. GM’s plan back in March 2020 was to invest $20 billion over five years in electric and autonomous vehicles. That money would go toward building and equipping factories, engineering expenses, and other development costs.

At the time, GM aimed to sell more than 1 million electric vehicles by 2025, with dozens of new models based on its home-grown Ultium battery technology.

Now Audi is the latest automaker to express its intent to completely end building combustion engine vehicles. They have said that they will stop building gas and diesel vehicles by 2026. Five short years from now.

As for the Hybrid line? Well from that point forward, no longer either.

According to The Drive; The Audi board chairman offered the deadline to company executives and labor representatives this week. The company said in March of this year that it would stop developing new combustion engines. Ah great.

The company has been in the midst of a “massive realignment” to try and gel with the Biden administration’s intent to subsidize E V production and infrastructure, according to Automotive News. More Public Private partnerships. Oh Goodie!

The parent company is reportedly “gearing up to make and sell considerably more electric vehicles in North America after U.S. President Joe Biden mapped out a $174 billion plan to accelerate the move to electric cars.”

There’s nothing like $174 billion to help motivate a massive business pivot, is there?

Name an auto manufacture that is not running like pigs squealing to the trough of free money. All they have to do is merge with the Federal System and VOILA – they too can have a Public Private PARTNERSHIP with the government. How cozy! How scary and how wrong.

Let’s pause for a bit and take a turn on this whole cluster of a mess. Instead of exposing the obvious and blatant in bed attempt being made here against your sovereignty. Let’s look across the way a bit. Here is a question to get you lined up with the idea. Ready? OK.

If in the next five years we are to flood the market with nothing but electric vehicles available for purchase is that a good thing?

Before we answer that there are a couple of “Mile Markers” we have just passed on this one. Again, the latest being the massive capital infusion into the industry. It is taking place by companies that already have a global manufacturing infrastructure and history of mass production. Chances are pretty good that this thing is going to happen.

This can be evidenced by the fact that the economically advantaged are the early adopters to new markets because of initial price constraint on the manufacturer. So as the deep pockets buy the luxury goods first the price falls for those of less economic advantages.

So, what of those less economically advantaged peoples?

Well, we suppose we will still need our gas-powered cars for a while. Reasonable to expect. It is the way these trends work. Cell Phones were only available for people with money. The Brick. Car Phones, Computer’s blah blah blah. The price starts high and then tapers as more demand is reached.

But what of the oil and gas industry through all of this? If we start reducing the sale of gasoline by millions of gallons a day in a compressed period of time, the edicts of supply and demand are going to drive gas to an astronomical price well beyond what anyone today thinks is even possible. Actions have outcomes.

After we get through what we are being told is going to be a seamless and non-violent transition we still have something even larger to deal with. If that is even possible.

Has anyone besides us been seeing the headlines about Texas, California, Arizona and others. About what? Well, these Greener than thou States are not able to keep up with the Air Conditioners and Heaters for their citizens.

While we are on the whole power thing, did you see the stories about smart thermostats in peoples homes were turned warmer for a three hour period in Texas during a “power shortage”. Nice, they can even control your AC now. Way to go kids!

These are the same States that adopted a green new deal infrastructure infusion of wind and solar as MAJOR sectors of their grid. Makes nuclear look better all the time. Quiet, safe, abundant, always on!

So, answer us this.

How in the hell are we going to charge everyone’s car when we cannot even produce enough power for our basic needs?

See the problem with the common core math?

Alexandria Occasional Cortex can maybe explain it for us.

Now, let’s just say the “gubberment” was not providing a Hundred and Seventy BILLION plus. Do you think the manufacturers would be biting the hook as tight? Yeah, us either. You can receive up to a $7,500 tax credit though if you buy one. Great more money from the Peoples pile.

Can’t you just see the calls now? “Sorry boss, my power was throttled last night and the car only has one bar. I won’t be in today.”

If there is to be no more gas combustion engines then what of Trains, Planes and Trucks? The cost of fuel if they do need to remain combustion is going to be outrageous and will effect your retail and food costs. As well as your travel cost in a major way.

E V technology is promising. It promises environmental nightmares ahead with piles of acid filled heaps of millions of batteries that are out of service. The unicorns are not going to just take them apart and dispose of them with no trace or residue. It promises years of abject poverty and unrequested hardship by many.

So, welcome to the Brave new world. ESG Scores and more for everyone. Including you fellow global citizen. This is just the first of many Great Reset or Build Back Better initiatives that are going to be attempted to be draped upon you – like it or not.

When you see initiatives like this locally in your County and Municipal Governments you know where they stem from. Agenda 2030, Sustainable Development, World Economic Forum & others.

Welcome to the closing chapters of Sustainable everything. Thank you to all that sold your country down the drain and into the pipe dream of global agreeance and outcome. The Great Reset as it is now branded. Way to go kids! You did it. You acted like useful idiots in your ego driven play of power and greed.

All the while you hid behind banner of Party, partisanship and racial division to advance the Global Agenda known as the Great Reset. The early adopters of sustainable development in Martin County opened the gateway to this type of reality in your own neighborhood. Stuart is equally as complicit in their adherence to this ridiculous march towards global everything.

It seems to be the younger among them that are foot to the floor on this stuff. They should consider that there was once a world before them. They may want to know too that as early as 1967 the last cultural revolution of ideas ended in 30 plus million dead.

Hang on kids, the bumps are just beginning! Turbulence and consequences ahead! Standby

One Down – Several More To Go !

Put one in the win column for the good guys!


Well, the sensical outcome of relative sanity seems to have prevailed in the Fire Rescue scrum that concluded last night in Indiantown. The conclusion was brought on in true self serving and ego driven fashion by the Village People too.

What do we mean?

When you review the previous meetings that Janet has Chaired as Mayor, she has a pattern. It is actually a pattern we noticed and even laughed about because of its obvious nature of selfishness. It seems to stem from a position of control.

Every meeting the Council has opportunity for each Council person to make whatever remarks that are germane to the business of the Village prior to conducting the people’s business.

As Mayor, during the “Council Comments” section young Janet has had a record of calling on her peers in the same order, meeting after meeting.

The person filling the top slot every meeting by Janet is done by calling on Susan Gibbs-Thomas first. Unless there is a topic of priority then she calls on Antony. You can see it yourself; it is all there to watch.

So, last night, why the shift to Antony as the first to speak? Well, that should be obvious to anyone that has half a clue. Antony will try and play the Fire Rescue as a positive for him in the upcoming election. He will fly the banner of being the one to ride in on a “White Horse” and save the day. That’s what makes us laugh.

The blatant nature of the selfishness to deny Susan the opportunity to make the motion was an obvious decision for the cornered and beaten Village People. At the end of the day, it was politics. Dirty, but politics.

There is another facet to this as well though outside of the politics.

Janet and Antony are not supposed to be discussing things like this between them. It is known as the Sunshine Law. So, how did the arrangements get made? Well, we have our own thoughts on that one.

What is most important though is Truth.

The truth is that the success of Susan Gibbs-Thomas is a threat to the personas being dawned by the Village People.

The truth is that between a lot of unselfish dialogue and prayer, Susan Gibbs-Thomas and Harold Jenkins held the thin thread together that allowed for Antony to grab the political spot light and try to shine it.

What was done last night by the Village people is a blatant and self-serving ploy that is deserving of the political gutter that they have to live in to assert it.

At the last Regular Council meeting Ms. Gibbs-Thomas made the same motion to accept the deal from Martin County. Because it was Susan, there were no takers for a second on the motion.

The truth, they could not bring themselves to allow Susan the role of leadership that she has earned through her behavior and outcomes.

It is not the posing with goodie bags, and painting a mural with the youth group that make you. It may be a thinly veiled marketing effort, but leadership it is not.

Leadership is allowing the hard work and the dedication you have demonstrated stand on its own merit and foundation. Because in the end it is that which we build upon the stone that lasts.

That which is built on sand will pass.

So, when the time comes, let the record reflect that we all know who was standing in the way and who was holding things together. In case anyone forgets we will be here to remind them later. Loud and clear.

Second, it is the loud and clear portion of this that needs some clarity as well.

Fire Rescue like every political matter has a beginning a middle and an end. The involvement of the People at the beginning of the matter will generally have a better chance of stopping bad ideas before they get out of hand. Like Fire Rescue did.

When the citizens are involved prior to the ideas, bad ideas are harder to plant and water.

Unfortunately, it seemed like too many were hoping someone else was doing the watching and standing up. Too many thought somebody else would make this all better for them. In the end, they were right. The few again stood for the many.

As the severity of the outcome continued to build a few braved the sticks and stones and began barking. We were called Racist, White Supremacists, Loud Mouths, troublemakers, blah blah blah.

We even stood outside the meetings, we protested, we made our voices heard, loud and clear.

Many from the Hispanic community that wanted to attend were told by so called men of God and Faith that they should not join the protestors because they would go to jail. The bullying and thuggery associated with the oppressive tactics for political victory are below the bottom. Especially for self declared disciples.

In the end the best of America showed up at the protests. People from all walks of life. People that found common ground of truth.People that together had a loud voice and made the difference.

If you looked even halfheartedly you saw what made this work.

WE THE PEOPLE.

So, let’s take a Victory lap for Indiantown and then get ready to focus on what are sure to be bigger challenges in the days ahead. Hopefully we can continue to build common ground for the common good.

Until Next time – Standby

Fire Rescue – One More Time

OK Indiantown

Time to step up one more time


Well the day has finally arrived. The Council is going to have to make a decision about Fire Rescue this Thursday at their next meeting.

Below is a copy of today’s discussion with the Martin County Board of County Commissioners and their position on the Village of Indiantown’s bullish demands. As we expected the “deal is the deal”, take it or leave it Village People.

Howard Brown asked for 2.5 million. He asked to make usage and deed changes in Booker and Big Mound Park to buildings deeded to the Village.

Howard has also added an item to the Village agenda for this Thursday to hire someone to oversee the fire rescue efforts for the Village. Just what we need, more salary and employees and worse services than what we have.

Are you waking up out there?



The county is at 1.3 million take it or leave it – they are done. Honestly it was a gracious gesture to begin with and the Village keeps spitting in their eye. They are lucky the offer was not pulled out from under them.

The Village meets this Thursday to decide whether or not to hire a person to lead the transition of the Fire Rescue from Martin. If they do hire the person, well, kiss Martin County Fire Rescue “bye-bye” in 2022.

Or they can do as Ms. Gibbs-Thomas has suggested they do and “TAKE THE DEAL”.

Will you be at the next meeting to continue the pressure on the Council to put this bad idea away and bury it?

It Starts with you.

Village of Indiantown Fire Rescue Plan ~ U P D A T E

It is time for a win by the good guys



It is the proverbial fish or cut bait time with the Village Council in Indiantown. In this update we are going to set the stage for your opportunity to score a big win for the good guys!

How? Well Standby because we are going to give you all the details as we take a look at the current state of affairs in Indiantown with the Martin County Fire Rescue. This discussion has nothing to do with anybody owing anybody else anything. It does not have to do with long black hair and the color of your skin. What is does have to deal with is the fact that residents, business owners and neighbors have made their voice very clear about the Howard Brown proposal for fire rescue changes in Indiantown.

At the last Council meeting Ms. Susan Gibbs-Thomas introduced a petition into the record of over 535 signatures of local residents and business owners that do not want a change in Fire and Rescue Service. That is a really big statement.

Given the fact that 900 to 1200 people typically vote in Indiantown elections, that is a significant block of voters to upset going into a new election cycle. Three of the Five will be up for re-election and we already know one of those Council persons are admittedly against any change in service delivery. We only need three votes to stay or go.

Your voice has made it clear too that the behavior of insulate tyrants, will not be permitted.

Over the past few months, the people of Indiantown have demonstrated and spoken publicly to the Council. They have said NO to a change in Fire Rescue. For everyone of the 500 plus signatures on the petition, there are easily double the amount in the Village that given the opportunity would vote for no change.

Two things strike us as encouraging here at TAM about the next Village Council Meeting.

Before we get there let’s give you some information you may not have heard yet.

During the past couple of weeks, a certain Village Council member, Ms. Gibbs-Thomas, has been taking extraordinary effort to continue to repair the fractured dialogue caused by the Mayor, Howard Brown, Jackie and others with the County Commission. In a spirit of true American grace, the County has once again extended an olive branch to the Village Council.

This time their offer is final. It is an offer that will help secure more grant dollars for infrastructure development, water, roads and economic development. The first caveat is a 300k for 5-year arrangement that will distribute grant money to the Village for the purpose of improving the delivery of water. Things like dead hydrant replacement and pressure upgrades. Something a fire truck needs when your house is burning to the ground. The funds will amount to 1.5 million dollars for the Village to use over 5 years.

Further concessions from the County are also being considered like taking the deed restriction off the Booker park fire house. That way, instead of being used solely for parks and rec, it may be used for general public use, excluding fire rescue. Others are “feel good” administrative concessions like reporting.

Here is the best part of all of this. You, we the people, made it happen. That’s right you made it happen. By signing the Petition, by being at the Village Council meetings, by telling the elected NO. YOU have made the difference.

How do we know? Good Question.

Here is how we answer that for you. The next Council meeting will include Fire Rescue as a discussion item one more time. Thank You Susan Gibbs-Thomas for making sure this topic stays alive.

Why is that a big deal? Well, this time the rubber is going to meet the road. Each of the Council members will be asked at the next meeting to either vote to reject Martin County, or to use them for 5 more years.

If they decide to can Martin County, we will use them for one more year, spend nearly two million in the same year on a questionable consultant and planning. Then in October of 2022 walk away from Martin County Fire Rescue and spend another 6 million for the first year of local sub-par service. That is if Howard and The Consultant have estimated everything properly.

If they vote at the next meeting to use the County Services for another 5 years, they will receive 1.5 million from the County as income not expense. We will also receive other concessions that make this a positive win for the people of the Village.

You still have a role to play, it is not a done deal yet.

Here is what you can do. While no one likes conflict, sometimes we have to stand to defend our freedoms and our family’s safety. Just like we have done at the last couple Village Council meetings.

On the 13th we all need to gather again. This time, the covid emergency orders will be scrapped and we can fill the Council Chambers with people and signs. We must gather one more time to let them know we are still watching and that their political skin is in the voter’s sights.

If they are too scared to vote one way or the other then maybe they should hold a referendum on the matter. Let the people vote on it. Or they can act like the Adult we elected and they can do your will! Much easier really and less expensive in the long run.

We are winning and we can end this bad nightmare. We will win it the way it is designed. By standing up and speaking out. In numbers. Remember, when one stands it is easier to dismiss them.

But when two stand they encourage two more and then 4 beget 8 and 8 16 until we, the people, send a loud message to those that work for us. If they fail to heed our desires and wishes then we will make sure that at the next election it is not forgotten.

If you are tired of feeling like no one listens. If you are tired of being bullied into things you know are wrong. If you want to make a difference. Join your neighbors and fellow Americans for one more rally at Village Hall to help seal the deal and keep Fire Rescue in Indiantown. It is time for a win. This time for the good guys! It starts with you! So, Stand!

And as always, we hope you will like us on Facebook and be sure to follow TALK About Martin .com on our web page for TAM Alerts notifications and access to all of the news that is news in Martin County. We are working on several more items that are going to raise your eyebrows and blood pressure too.

So……. until next time, Standby.

 

 

 

Listening Tour

Talk About Martin is considering a Listening Tour in Indiantown


Recent strong arm tactics of intimidation and threats, Bullying from the Dias during meetings, reported threats of blocking money for grants and well documented malfeasance on the part of Howard Brown and four of the Village People while dealing with your life and livelihood seem to suggest, we need to Talk Indiantown.

TAM has witnessed a lot of passion, energy and desire to right this listing ship called The Village of Indiantown. Some of the ideas being offered are Recalling Sitting Council Members. Pressing for an AG investigation into possible corruption, Dissolution of the Village all together and New Strong Adult Candidates for office.

We have seen petitions of over 530 signatures against Fire Rescue Changes and have seen some Politicos double down on the bet. How can you make them listen? We can help.

We would like to cut through the hype and share what know to be fact and listen to your ideas on the matter. So let us know if you think it is worth your time.






 

A list of 10 for the Adults in Indiantown

TAM believes there are some things that need to be said to the adults in the room.



First.

The childish sense of racial empowerment by some members of the Village Council is a problem.


Second.

The idea of being owed something and or having an expectation of someone else paying for your things is wrong. Entitlement is amoral and no one owes you a thing.


Third.

A door of graciousness in the face of belligerence has afforded an opportunity of amicable end to a divisive matter.


Fourth.

Continued demands are going to cause all lose of any further good faith effort on the majority of the Commission.

Subject: BOCC meeting direction today

Howard,

Today, the Board of County Commissioners gave me direction to reach out to you and communicate to you that they are offering $300,000 per year for a 5 year agreement – we will develop an Interlocal agreement for the funds – a total of $1.5M, that will be targeted to be used for your utility improvements that would benefit fire flow in Indiantown – which would enhance fire rescue’s ability to respond when providing fire and emergency services. We would create the Interlocal for the funding, and then we would expect the Village to amend their ordinance to be included in the Fire Rescue MSTU to have a 5-year term – rather than the provision to be terminated upon notice on May 1. Commissioner Jenkins brought this up during his comments and Commissioners Ciampi, Hetherington & Smith approved it. Their hope is that the Council will embrace this, and we can all move forward.

We do not have another meeting until May 11, so if you can get this to your Council, and provide us with a response, then we will begin the creation of the Interlocal.

I am in the meeting today, but if you wish to discuss further, just let me know.

Thanks,

Fifth.

A continuation of expenditure, due diligence and any other workshop the Village engage in regarding Fire Rescue will be seen as a waste of the people’s money and a threat to safety setting the stage for potential recall elections.


Sixth.

If the Council does not publicly solidify a deal in the very near future with the County for 2022, it has been said that the political will of the Council majority is to move ahead with privatization next year.


Seventh.

Budget consideration is proposed to the tune of 1.8 million, to be spent between the beginning of the next budget cycle and October of 2022 for further steps to solidify the costs of Fire Rescue privatization.


Eighth.

Allowing the consultant that has a large fiduciary interest in the outcome of the negations with the County to intervene in the negotiations is unethical and reprehensible.

Ethos


Ninth.

Continued employment of a marginal City manager will cost the tax payers a great deal of money in the near term.

Tenth.

Lack of involvement on a person’s part to be aware of the actions of the ruling, will lead to lose of freedom as the ruled.

Susan Gibbs Thomas Talks Fire Rescue with Tony Z

Here is the latest information from Susan Gibbs-Thomas as it relates to the on going saga fire rescue boondoggle. It is actually good news and Susan is to thank for the outcome.


We would like to thank the Martin County Commission for exercising some mature postures through the process. We would also like to thank them for the effort they made to help bring resolution to this for the good of the community.



The Martin County Board of County Commissions discussion regarding the proposed resolution on Fire Rescue is below.
