In What Sense Do You Think We Are Free?

In What Sense Do You Think We Are Free?Here’s a sensible question.  If the mayor of the most notable metropolis in the country can openly suggest that the government has the right to permanently shutter the doors of a church if it refuses to comply with “social distancing” guidelines, or any other edict the government finds necessary in a given moment, then what can’t the government do?Just a few weeks ago, the threat of COVID-19 was considered by nearly everyone to be potentially far deadlier than it has yet proven to be.  The fatality rates, hospitalization rates, and the predictions of American death tolls (once routinely touted as “over 2 million”) associated with infection were all much higher three weeks ago than they are today.  And yet, as the dire projections about the impact of infection has become considerably smaller with new data and improved medical readiness, the social restrictions placed upon the populace have become progressively more obstructive and draconian.Got that?  The better the health outlook has become, the harsher the government’s restrictions on you have also become.If that isn’t bothersome to you, maybe you should think about the fact that these social restrictions seem to have only become harsher on you.  Some Americans are enduring no government obstruction in their lives, and others still are actually enjoying more freedom than they would have before these social obstructions in your lives were introduced.Consider this.  A junkie can wake up on a brisk morning in the streets of San Francisco, defecate on the sidewalk in plain view of onlookers, and insert a used needle into his arm to inject illegal narcotics into his veins.  The cops will make no effort to stop him, for, you see, that might be a violation of his supposed “rights.”  That’s much the same as it was before the coronavirus pandemic, so I should probably add that this junkie’s sleeping and social arrangements may very well be in violation of “social distancing” guidelines, also.Now, consider that he is far less likely to incur the attention of law enforcement, or even the news media, than you might incur for the crime of choosing to attend your local church, should it have the audacity to be open.  It is you, don’t you understand, who is the public health menace. Examples abound of pastors of churches being threatened, fined, even jailed, for refusing to suspend religious worship during this period where “social distancing” is a matter of life and death. This leads to myriad questions that deserve much attention and discussion, not least of which is how state governments have any authority to obstruct the First Amendment right “to peaceably assemble” or to prohibit “the free exercise of religion.”  How all of this of this is consistent with any modern understanding of an incorporated Bill of Rights, as the United States Supreme Court currently holds as the jurisprudential standard, is anyone’s guess.But arguments about the suspension of such civil liberties aside, does a citizen’s life or death even matter, in the context of our Constitution?  Let’s move on to a second contrast which should highlight just how little liberty some Americans enjoy today. Ostensibly to “socially distance” inmates from infected jail cells, Los Angeles’ Sheriff Alex Villanueva “is freeing prisoners from Los Angeles County jails and curbing arrests for more law-breakers.” Apparently, Villanueva and Co. have “cut their arrests by 80 percent.”Four-in-five potential not criminals going to jails in Los Angeles is a real problem, because that unquestionably means more criminals on the streets free to commit crimes.  And police around the country seem to have their hands full enforcing “social distancing” guidelines, arresting pastors and whatnot. But Americans have Second Amendment rights, and can protect themselves, right?  Well, in Los Angeles, gun shops were, just days ago, being forced to close their doors, clearly infringing upon the rights of law-abiding Americans who would “keep and bear arms” in order to protect themselves from the criminals their government has been releasing into the public. I don’t understand how this could be any clearer.  The government was releasing criminals from jails, while the government was simultaneously violating the rights of law-abiding citizens by making it illegal for them to buy or sell the weapons that could protect them and their families from the criminals that the government was releasing from their custody. Thankfully, the policy of considering the selling of firearms as “nonessential” was reversed quickly under public pressure, even in Los Angeles.  It is, I suppose, a lingering remnant of our cultural inheritance that we Americans tend to bristle menacingly at the government when it comes to our right to individual self-defense. Yet we often do not do so when it comes to the milder, yet equally obvious, infringements upon our other rights.Sometimes, the evidence we see in our day-to-day lives doesn’t draw such sharp contrasts as these.  Recently, my wife and I discovered that all nearby parks in my city are closed to any visitors.  This is a shame for our community.  Last weekend, unable to communally attend our church, I and my children purchased some donuts at our favorite local shop, and we went to our nearby park to eat in the California sunshine.  Afterward, my children scootered and played.  We weren’t alone.  People weren’t exactly brushing up against one another that I saw, but apparently there were “reports” of people not abiding by the “social distancing” protocol. So, until further notice, we were notified, all city parks are hereby closed.  Caution tape has been strewn over our playground to make that point that we can no longer allow our children to play there.  And what’s more, the notification comes complete with a public service announcement urging people to inform the local government if their neighbors have the audacity to violate “social distancing” guidelines. To put it mildly, the social fabric is being torn apart.  And for what?It’s healthy for Americans to maintain skepticism about the motives and effectiveness of our government.  Right now, there is a lot which calls the government’s motives and effectiveness into question. Like what I suspect is a growing number of Americans, I am completely unconvinced that the harsh measures being foisted upon the American people, as collective units amongst the states, are entirely necessary, and even more unconvinced that a similar outcome could not have been achieved with fewer rigid restrictions upon healthy and less at-risk individuals and American life, in general.  And as days pass, I’m ever more convinced that the utter annihilation of the economy that we’ve seen, and the trillions in spending of taxpayer money that we absolutely, positively do not have, could have been significantly less damaging if we had demanded fewer government restrictions throughout this crisis, rather than more.See More

          

WHATCHA DOING TODAY?   

Cache   
Goodness, last week was busy. Countless phone calls. Constant customers. My hands got tender from putting on gloves and masks, and wiping everything down with Lysol, including the gate. I wear them, every time I go out and wipe down everything we get. We don’t want to take any chances. The paper tends to curl after being wiped, we are calling it, “the Corona Curl”. The Lady at the post office loved my mask cover... it’s a dust mask with a skull on it. We chatted about taking extra caution, because of our elderly mothers. The PO has a ‘shower curtain’ type of barrier in front of them, but I am constantly seeing people move it aside and lean in to talk. Circle K finally installed a barrier at the counter and quit cashing out customers at all 4 counters, now, only the 2 farthest apart are being used. People still aren’t respecting the 6’ distancing. Really? Sheeple without a clue, IMHO. Keeping the owner of the dog rescue in our prayers, in isolation and having kidney problems, doing video doctor visits. He’s still has 20+ dogs to care for...by himself. Made chicken pot pies, from scratch, last night. They seemed to like them. I have enough leftover to make 2 more for the freezer. I’m looking forward to resting today, but, we still have an appointment coming in. I might just stay inside with MIL and the dogs. A plus, Storm sounds off every time someone comes, it is encouraging to see people react to his gruff bark. If they know we have guard dogs, it is less likely they will want to do us harm. DH was concerned about our TP supply, we are good for at least a month, even with 3 people using it, but, he ordered 80 rolls! Mainly because, I said I didn’t want to deal with WM, until all this settles down. I’m still waiting to see some seeds sprout. I may have to replant some. Of 14 zucchini seeds, 2 sprouted. IDK. Trusting God. The weather has been beautiful for Mom, high 70’s to low 80’s. She sits on the porch swing in the sun and naps. WE2, sounds like you are really busy. Glad your DH was able to clean out the water heater. Our last one cost us a lot and a lot of muscles. kappydell, I love flowers, the camomile flowers are scattered in the yard around the spice garden, and the roses are blooming profusely, Mom loves the pink Chicago Peace, but loves the smell of the Lincoln roses. And Storm, looking sad for his rescuer.... Nice to hear everyone is taking the necessary precautions and handling the stress of this all. Just a side note... listening to the news yesterday, some high up doctor was asked about how hard the social distancing was to plan and implement, he said.. oh, it was fairly easy to plan, TPTB had designed it in 2000, but, had never had the opportunity to implement it, until now. Where’s my tinfoil hat.... planned economic collapse.... planned population control....

President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Releases Message for Holy Week 2020

April 3, 2020

WASHINGTON – Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued the following statement for Holy Week.

Archbishop Gomez’s full statement follows:

“Future generations will look back on this as the long Lent of 2020, a time when disease and death suddenly darkened the whole earth. As we enter into Holy Week, these most sacred days of the year, Catholics across the United States and the world are living under quarantine, our societies shut down by the coronavirus pandemic.

“But we know that our Redeemer lives. Even in this extraordinary and challenging moment, we give thanks for what Jesus Christ has done for us by his life, death, and resurrection. Even now, we marvel at the beautiful mystery of our salvation, how precious each one of us is in the eyes of God.

“These are times almost without precedent in the long history of the Church. In the face of this worldwide contagion, bishops here and in almost every country have been forced to temporarily suspend public worship and celebration of the sacraments.

“My brother bishops and I are painfully aware that many of our Catholic people are troubled and hurt by the loss of the Eucharist and the consolation of the sacraments. This is a bitter affliction that we all feel deeply. We ache with our people and we long for the day when we can be reunited around the altar of the Lord to celebrate the sacred mysteries.

“In this difficult moment, we ask God for his grace, that we might bear this burden together with patience and charity, united as one family of God in his universal Church.

“On Good Friday, on behalf of the bishops in the United States, I will pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I ask you to join me in this prayer,. . . which will be livestreamed over the internet at 9 a.m. on the West Coast and 12 noon on the East Coast. Let us join as one family of God here in the United States in asking our Lord for his mercy.

“The Holy Father has granted a special plenary indulgence to those who pray for an end to this pandemic. To receive this indulgence, you need to pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart on Good Friday, be truly sorry for your sins and desire to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as soon as it is possible, and you need to pray for the intentions of the Pope.

“In the heart of Jesus, pierced as he hung on the cross on Good Friday, we see the love of God for humanity, his love for each one of us.

“This Holy Week will be different. Our churches may be closed, but Christ is not quarantined and his Gospel is not in chains. Our Lord’s heart remains open to every man and woman. Even though we cannot worship together, each of us can seek him in the tabernacles of our own hearts.

“Because he loves us, and because his love can never change, we should not be afraid, even in this time of trial and testing. In these mysteries that we remember this week, let us renew our faith in his love. And let us ask our Blessed Mother Mary to intercede for us, that he might deliver us from every evil and grant us peace in our day.”

PATRIZIA buys BTR development in Amsterdam

PATRIZIA buys BTR development in Amsterdam

PATRIZIA AG, on behalf of clients, has acquired a turnkey residential development in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from Biesterbos Groep, a Dutch real estate investor and conceptual developer. 

This transaction increases PATRIZIA’s total assets under management in The Netherlands to EUR2.1 billion.

 
The high-quality scheme, which will comprise around 7,760 s qm of rental accommodation, is due to be completed in the autumn of 2020.
 
The asset is located on the waterfront in the NDSM area of Amsterdam Noord, formerly the largest shipyard in Europe, which is now undergoing a transformation into a vibrant, high density urban area with a unique and historical industrial character. The area is already home to notable companies including Viacom, Greenpeace and Red Bull, as well as restaurants, shops and other amenities. The city centre can be reached in 15 minutes via free ferry transport, and is also easily accessible via bus, bike and metro connections.
 
Emile Poort, Head of Transactions BENELUX at PATRIZIA, says: “This investment provides our clients with access to a modern, high quality development in a sought-after location of Amsterdam where residential demand is rising. The long-term fundamentals underpinning demand for good quality rental accommodation will remain, despite the current challenges posed by coronavirus. The NDSM district is one of the most exciting areas of the city and is undergoing significant regeneration, which we expect will see it further established as an attractive location for residents and businesses alike over the long term.”
 
PATRIZIA has 36 years’ experience of investing in the residential sector across Europe, using its proprietary European Cities Ranking model to focus on long term buy-to-hold strategies in Europe’s most exciting metropolitan areas. Urbanisation combined with population growth is resulting in housing demand surpassing macroeconomic or political volatility across the “‘Living”’ residential category, including Build to Rent, co-living, retirement and student housing.

The Weight Of Grace And Beauty

Perhaps it is there in His gracious rhythm and merciful pace that I find my answers.~Journal entry during COVID-19

Even amidst the stay-at-home order, I've struggled with exhaustion. Mentally mostly. I've felt pressure to continue to be productive and create routines inside my sequestered environment. Yet often, I've merely wanted to collapse on my bed and lament, "This 'new normal' is overwhelming and I have no beacn for the struggle." 

One of the coping tools I've used in my daily routine is to listen to several podcasts throughout the day. One of my favorite resources is Brilliant TV where I listen to Graham Cooke and Allison Bown. There is a format where listeners can make comments. On one of the podcasts, I became attracted to a phrase that Mr. Cooke used, "the weight of His mercy." I was especially attracted to this expression, because I have felt "weighted" during the pandemic--not by mercy, but rather by depression and dread, anxiety and lethargy.

I ventured to write a comment stating how much I identified with the phrase, and this is how Allison Bown responded...

The weight of mercy is a powerful truth. That's an "X" that marks the spot for you to explore more. What if the greatest weights of pressures on our lives were those of mercy, grace and beauty? Continue to think deeply with God, Priscilla. You're on a great exploration with Him. 

Ms. Bown's response gave me much to contemplate during these days of speculation and ambiguity. Her repsonse increased my hope, reminded me that I do have a lantern during this dark time--God's mercy, grace and beauty. His love, favor and kindess. His tender intentions never change.

A prayer for all of us during these chaotic times: 

Jesus have mercy on us.

Let the weight of your grace bring us strength.

Let our prayers be rivers of gratefulness, even when our faith wavers, even when we doubt that anything good could come of this wave of misery in the world.

Thank you that our hearts are entwined with yours.

Jesus, may your peace light our way.

Politico Ranks Florida Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS Worst State Leader on Coronavirus   

Cache   



The Gubernatorial Busts


1. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)

DeSantis is one of Trump’s favorite governors and a potential 2024 presidential prospect. But he has made a bad first impression on the rest of the country by failing to fully shut down Florida’s beaches before or after they were overrun with partiers on spring break, many of whom then traveled home to locations throughout the United States.
He also resisted making a statewide stay-at-home order until finally relentingon Wednesday — in the wake of intense pressure from Florida Democrats, and televised comments Wednesday morning by the surgeon general urging all governors to get their residents to stay at home. Before that point, his seemingly toughest measure was issuing a quarantine for travelers coming from the New York City tri-state area or Louisiana, but the focus on hot spots ignores all the community spread inside Florida and in other states. Florida already has nearly 7,000 confirmed cases, ranking it 17th among the states on a per capita basis.
Earlier, DeSantis justified eschewing broader measures. “We’re also in a situation where we have counties who have no community spread,” he said on March 19. “We have some counties that don’t have a single positive test yet.” But everything we have experienced strongly suggests you don't want to wait until you have community spread before taking strong action. 
DeSantis may still be helped by Trump, who may be giving Florida preferential treatment. According to the Washington Post, other governors have had difficulty getting supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile, but not DeSantis. And Trump has been influenced by DeSantis’ argument that some social distancing measures are too harmful to the economy. The Post quoted an anonymous White House official, who explained, “The president knows Florida is so important for his reelection, so when DeSantis says that, it means a lot. He pays close attention to what Florida wants.”
For now, DeSantis remains on the GOP’s 2024 shortlist. But if DeSantis encourages Trump to make bad decisions, and if Florida is getting supplies while other states scrounge, the governor’s ties to the president may become a serious liability for his own future prospects.

2. Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R)

Aside from its next-door neighbor Louisiana, Mississippi is the Southern state with the most confirmed Covid-19 cases on a per capita basis. Yet Reeves has made a hash out of the response. 
As Mississippi’s localities began issuing stay-at-home edicts, Reeves issued his own order on March 24, broadly defining what business and social activity is “essential” — including religious services — and declared any order from any other “governing body” which conflicts with the state order to be “suspended and unenforceable.” Two days later, under pressure, he tried to clarify that the state order provided only a “floor,” which counties and cities could surpass, but confusingly added that “no order can keep those essential services from going on.” Mississippi mayors have been confused and have interpreted the governor differently.
Reeves had resisted a statewide stay-at-home order on ideological grounds, insisting that “Mississippi's never going to be China. Mississippi's never going to be North Korea.” Yet as the virus spreads, Reeves may find himself dragged into a more expansive response.

On Tuesday, Reeves issued his first stay-at-home order, but in just one county, Lauderdale, where a nursing home has suffered an outbreak. “The businesses in Lauderdale County are simply losing customers to surrounding counties and BTW covid doesn’t stop at the county line,” tweeted the mayor of Tupelo, which is in Lee County. 
On Wednesday, Reeves issued a stay-at-home order that encompasses the whole state — but which doesn't take effect for another two days. If Mississippi’s spread becomes severe, Reeves’ haphazard response will come back to haunt him.

3. Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R)

On March 14, Stitt tweeted a picture of his family eating at a restaurant, as if he deserved an award for defying the coronavirus panic. “It’s packed tonight!” he enthusiastically shared, but facing blowback, later deleted the post.
The next day, Stitt declared a state of emergency. Then, the day after that, the governor’s spokesman said, “the governor will continue to take his family out to dinner and to the grocery store without living in fear, and encourages Oklahomans to do the same.” Stitt still has not issued a statewide stay-at-home order. In the absence of one, major Oklahoma cities have imposed their own over the past few days.
Two weeks later, Oklahoma’s rate of infection is intensifying, and testing is minimal. Stitt is not the only governor who has hesitated to implement stiff restrictions, but he may become a case study of the pitfalls of glib social media use in a time of crisis.

4. Hawaii Gov. David Ige (D)

You may remember Ige as the governor who, for 17 minutes in 2018, couldn’t correct a false warning of an incoming ballistic missile because he didn’t know his Twitter password.
Earlier this month, Ige tapped his Lieutenant Governor Josh Green to play a key role in the state’s response to coronavirus. Green is an emergency room doctor, so his calls for strict travel restrictions and quarantines on arrivals carried great weight. But once Green publicly pushed for strong measures, Ige cut him out of the loop, instructing Cabinet officials not to consult with Green, and keeping Green out of his press conferences.

Hawaii faced an influx of “crisis tourists” looking to ride out the pandemic in paradise. But as the governor of a tourism-dependent state, Ige hesitated to act. On March 19, the state House speaker, fellow Democrat Scott Saiki, upbraided Ige in a letter, describing the administration’s response as “utterly chaotic,” causing “mass confusion among the public.”
Ige has now made peace with Green, and recently ordered a 14-day quarantine for arrivals — though there was a five-day gap between the announcement and the implementation. A stay-at-home order has been issued, though with exceptions for swimming and surfing. Ige better hope those steps are enough.

5. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R)

Ige isn’t the only governor taking heat from his No. 2. Ivey is being shown up by her lieutenant governor, Will Ainsworth.
On March 25, Ainsworth, who serves on Ivey’s coronavirus task force, wrote a letter to the panel’s other members. After some perfunctory pleasantries, he lit into them: “A tsunami of hospital patients is likely to fall upon Alabama in the not too distant future, and it is my opinion that this task force and the state are not taking a realistic view of the numbers or adequately preparing for what awaits us.”
The day after, Ivey sounded a completely different note at a press conference, when she dismissed the idea of a statewide stay-at-home order. “Y’all, we are not Louisiana, we are not New York sate, we are not California,” she said. (Washington Post data journalist Philip Bump warned Ivey that Alabama’s caseload was growing faster than California’s.) 
Then, at a press conference one day after that, Ivey dumped on Ainsworth, saying he was “not helpful” in “raising challenges and criticism and issues we are aware of, and offering no solutions and showing no willingness to work with the task force and the team willing to fix it.” (Ainsworth’s letter did, in fact, offer solutions regarding health care capacity.)
Ivey, who is not yet term-limited, would turn 78 before the 2022 election. By that time, Ainsworth, who won a separate election for lieutenant governor and did not run with Ivey on a ticket, would be 41, and well-positioned to move into the governor’s mansion. Perhaps Ivey will just want to retire by 2022. But if she does plan on seeking reelection, she now has to worry about a possible primary challenger who has successfully separated himself from her questionable pandemic response.

6. West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R)

Justice is a billionaire political neophyte who won the 2016 gubernatorial election as a Democrat, then, in 2017, switched to become a Republican and a Trump ally. His lack of experience in crisis management has been glaringly obvious from his discordant statements and actions.

On March 16, he was preaching defiance. “For crying out loud, go to the grocery stores,” Jutice said. “If you want to go to Bob Evans and eat, go to Bob Evans and eat.” Then, the very next day, he shut down dine-in eating at the state’s restaurants. 
The following Saturday, Justice gave a disjointed address which, according to the Associated Press, featured “jumbled sets of numbers that puzzled viewers in their randomness.” He warned of dire consequences, but neglected to issue a stay-at-home order. “Governor Urges Action, Takes None,” read a headline in the Charleston Gazette-Mail the next day. Later that week, Justice finally announced a stay-at-home order. 
This wobbly performance is coming at the worst possible time for Justice politically, because he faces a contested party primary for the gubernatorial nomination this spring. (Justice just pushed back the primary from May 12 to June 9.) Justice faces six primary opponents, with the most spirited challenge coming from Justice’s former Commerce secretary, Woody Thrasher. Justice has been a heavy favorite to date, but a mismanaged crisis can change poll numbers very fast.

I sit down with Ryan from Modern Sons


Notes:

Rooted in garage rock the four piece brings a ubiquitously sonic ambience with crunchy guitars and sophisticated bass lines. Organic structures are not based in a particular style of music, but rooted in the expression of experience and the song itself. The Modern Sons effectively and skillfully uses textural changes of dynamic to step into another sub genre of rock they coin as psychedelic post-punk.

Hello. He is interested in everything that happens on earth. Since I heard about the universe, I remember my right to choose. Who does he want to become? Do you want to be rich or do everything yourself? I chose the latter option. Unfortunately, the system blocked my development opportunities. I want to help, but I need inner peace which is the basis for life. I have been a prisoner of the system for 5 years. How and what project do you expect. I want to earn enough to let me and my family live peacefully teaching others peace

Working Together to Hold Suffering

Saraha speaks to several themes from the Sigalaka Sutra. Firstly, friends are helpful, stand by you, give you time. Secondly, those who serve and support society, do we treat them as real people? Do we (as a society) look after them when they are ill? Our Buddhist Centres are here to bring peace, love, and agency with the ability to hold suffering close to your heart. The Sigalaka Sutta guides us on how to treat our fellow human beings.

Why You Need Service Line Coverage   

Cache   

Let’s spare a moment for something most of us use every day yet probably take for granted: our service lines. We rely on them for access to water, electricity, gas, Internet connection, and more, but only think about them when service is interrupted. And when that happens, you may be surprised by what your basic homeowners policy covers, and what it doesn’t.

Did you know that, as a homeowner, you are responsible for the maintenance, repair, and replacement of service lines connecting to your house? Energy companies and other service providers are only responsible for the infrastructure up to where it connects to your property. That means that if one of your pipes freezes or your sewer line backs up into your house, you have to pay to fix it.

Consider this common scenario. You have a mature tree on the parking strip in front of your house and its roots have penetrated into your main water line. What began as a small, unnoticed crack eventually expands and causes your pipe to rupture. To fix it, you’ll have to dig up your yard and replace the pipe. That could be a big mess — and an even bigger bill. This type of job can easily run to $5,000 or more.

However, if you have service line coverage, it would pay for the excavation, the new pipe, labor, and even the costs of any outdoor property damaged as a result of the leak. Doesn’t that sound better than paying the full cost out of pocket?

How Service Line Coverage Protects Your Home

Service line coverage protects you from damages that occur to your service lines running from the point of connection to the main service or utility line up to your home. The types of lines covered include:

  • Water
  • Waste disposal
  • Electrical power
  • Drainage
  • Compressed air
  • Communications
  • Heating

Covered losses include, but are not limited to, such issues as:

  • Wear and tear
  • Rust and corrosion
  • Mechanical breakdown
  • Freezing
  • Tree or other root invasion

Best of all, this coverage — and the peace of mind it brings — is available for just a few dollars per month. To learn more about service line coverage, or homeowners insurance in general, contact us today.

Las entidades ecologistas critican la "desregulación ambiental" del decreto de simplificación del Gobierno andaluz y apoyan impugnarlo   

Cache   

Tras convalidar la Diputación Permanente del Parlamento de Andalucía el nuevo decreto de mejora y simplificación de la regulación para el fomento de la actividad productiva en Andalucía, con los apoyos de PP, Cs y Vox y el rechazo del PSOE y Adelante, las principales organizaciones conservacionistas han avisado de que se trata de una "desregulación ambiental" en toda regla que reduce las "garantías ambientales de las normas andaluzas".

En un comunicado, las organizaciones ecologistas Amigos de la Tierra, Ecologistas en Acción, Greenpeace, SEO/BirdLife y WWF avisan de que "aprovechando la actual situación de excepcionalidad, el Parlamento de Andalucía ha convalidado el decreto aprobado recientemente por el Gobierno de la Junta de Andalucía (de PP y Cs) por el que se desregulan numerosas actividades económicas, se reduce la participación pública y se eliminan garantías ambientales", toda vez que el Ejecutivo andaluz defiende la necesidad de solucionar "la maraña burocrática y el exceso de legislación", que a su juicio constituye "una pesada carga para el crecimiento económico de una región".

Para las principales organizaciones ecologistas, no obstante, resulta "un auténtico despropósito que, con el argumento de agilizar trámites administrativos para reducir el impacto socioeconómico del Brexit y de la pandemia del coronavirus, la Junta de Andalucía cambie 21 leyes y seis decretos a través de una convalidación con un reducido número de parlamentarios a causa de la cuarentena".

"La mayoría de estas modificaciones nada tienen que ver con una pretendida simplificación de trámites burocráticos. Muy al contrario, pretenden reeditar el modelo económico imperante durante los años de la burbuja especulativa que llevó a España a la crisis de 2008, al tiempo que se reduce el papel de la administración pública en la defensa y salvaguarda de la naturaleza y los derechos sociales. Estos cambios legislativos y normativos pueden provocar importantes daños ambientales y territoriales y fomentar, de nuevo, entre otras cosas, la especulación urbanística, afectando también a otros sectores sociales y económicos".

Con el nuevo decreto ley, según los ecologistas, "se amplían las actuaciones que se pueden declarar de interés autonómico, lo que facilita su tramitación, en el caso de urbanizaciones residenciales supramunicipales, puertos y aeropuertos, embalses, grandes establecimientos comerciales, turísticos e industriales".

Además, y entre otros aspectos, "se sustituyen los planes especiales y proyectos de actuación en suelo no urbanizable para la implantación de diversas infraestructuras, canteras y minas por un mero informe" y "e modifica de la Ley de medidas frente al cambio climático, eliminando la obligación del cálculo de la huella de carbono de productos y servicios".

Para Amigos de la Tierra, Ecologistas en Acción, Greenpeace, SEO/BirdLife y WWF, "si las formas y el momento de la aprobación son inaceptables, mucho más lo es el contenido del decreto, representativo de la forma en que la Junta de Andalucía entiende que hay que la crisis, desregulando procesos que nos garantizan el buen funcionamiento de actividades y proyectos; eliminando cautelas bajo el pretexto de agilizar plazos, eludiendo procesos de participación pública, incluso en contra de los objetivos de leyes estatales y directivas comunitarias y, en definitiva, permitiendo el todo vale".

Por estos motivos, las principales organizaciones ambientales apoyan el anuncio del PSOE y Adelante Andalucía de presentar un recurso de amparo ante el Tribunal Constitucional.

FORCE'S VETERANDS ID CARD
Message posted: 20 February 2019

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) have launched (as of 18th February 2019) a new Veterans' ID card which will enable public and charitable sector services to instantly recognise the service of a Veteran. This card will provide proof that a Veteran has served in HM Armed Forces in line with the Government definition of a Veteran - which is one day’s service.

Currently, there is no way for existing Veterans to easily prove the fact that they have served and the administrative burden on providers when verifying that a person is a Veteran can be considerable, both in time and cost. This card will allow you to confidentially verify that someone has served in the Armed Forces.

However, this card will not be held by all Veterans as it is being rolled out in tranches

> Phase 1: To all Service Leavers only, as part of the discharge process with effect from 18th February 2019, and retrospectively to those who left on or after 17 December 2018

> Phase 2: Applications from the wider Veteran Community will be encouraged once the process has been agreed. Information on how to apply will be made available closer to the time - before the end of 2019

Some genuine Veterans in need may not have the capacity to apply for one.

Therefore, please do not take the absence of a Veterans' ID card as proof that a person is not a Veteran. Instead continue to use your existing processes to verify their Veteran status (click here for the related article regarding applying for service records)

Veterans should contact the Veterans' UK Helpline number for further relevant information. Their details are below.

Telephone: 0808 1914 218

OBTAINING GRENADIER SERVICE RECORDS

Message posted: 14 February 2019

RHQ have received numerous requests to check service records for service history.  This is to advise of the process for ex-service personnel record requests.

The Archive Department, at RHQ, only now has a record (register) of service numbers and names to confirm an individual was a Grenadier, which the Association SNCCCO can use to check on an as-and-when basis.  However, the process for reviewing service records is now as follows:

All Records of Service (including Officers) have been transferred to the Ministry of Defence and RHQ are no longer able to answer any queries about individuals who have served in the Regiment.

 Please send your enquiry to Army Disclosures, Army Personnel Centre, Kentigern House, 65 Brown Street, Glasgow G2 8EX or visit:

If you have any questions, please telephone the Army Personnel Centre helpdesk on 0345 600 9663.

Individuals – or their attorney’s/next of kin’s – should complete the relevant forms in order to obtain the information required, which can then be disclosed to them for the relevant purposes.

The same process should be followed if Branches need to obtain information for specific purposes (e.g. welfare cases), albeit through an internal request system via the Association SNCO.

We Were Brothers in Arms - Frank Clark

We Were Brothers in Arms is an attempt to understand the experience of battle during WW2 through the personal experiences of the ordinary soldier.

Frank Clark has gathered together the amazing stories of British soldiers during the eleven months of frenzied warfare that followed D-Day, and combined them into this fascinating volume. As a veteran himself (serving in WW2, Korea, Malaya, Cyprus, Northern Ireland and during the Cold War), Frank is well versed in the adrenalin of battle, and here he brings together the tales of a wide cross section of fighting men on the front line. There are stories from the infantry, the assault troops who stormed the Normandy beaches and forced bridgeheads. The dashing reconnaissance men in their thin-skinned, tanks sending back vital radio reports; the parachutists, dropping behind enemy lines to fight, the sappers building bridges and clearing minefields under fire; the gunners, bringing down fast, furious and accurate barrages; the signallers, patching up communication links; the non-combatant stretcher-bearers, the doctors tending the wounded, the support services bringing up food and ammunition. This book tells their story of war, and reminds us why their sacrifice should never be forgotten.

We Are Btrothers In Arms

We Were Brothers in Arms is a compelling account of the last months of war told through eye witness accounts, some never before published.

Frank has met all publishing costs, so by ordering though the East Kent Branch, RHQ or via the author (Frank Clark) will ensure that the full cost of the book is donated to The Colonel’s Fund Grenadier Guards (registered charity no. 1062257). Ordering via Amazon or the publisher of the book will mean only the profit going to the charity.

The 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards returned from Afghanistan at the end of October 2012 after a grueling but highly successful operational tour. Sadly, 5 Grenadiers were killed in action and there were 46 battle casualties, of which 11 were amputees. A Victoria Cross was won but sadly posthumously. Such a grim toll shows only too clearly that the task of helping our Grenadiers is sadly only just beginning and we will need to continue to raise funds into the future. Your purchase of Frank's book will help raise much needed funds.

To order a copy, please make contact with the East Kent Branch (via our Contact page) and we will provide detail on how to order.

The Regiment   

Cache   

An Abridged History

The life of our Regiment began in Flanders. At many times in the last three hundred years the towns and villages of the Low Countries have been familiar to men of the Ist Guards. They fought in 1658, and again in 1940, against great odds, on the road between Furnes and Dunkirk. Under the great Duke of Marlborough they bore their part in the victories of Ramillies, Oudenarde and Malplaquet. At Waterloo in 1815 they won their name, a name to which great honour was added a century later in the mud and suffering of the Western Front. In 1944 they entered Brussels at the head of a victorious British Army. They have returned gloriously many times to Flanders, and in Flanders they were first formed.

In 1656 King Charles II was in exile, and England lay under the military dictatorship of Cromwell, the Lord Protector. In May of that year the King formed his Royal Regiment of Guards at Bruges, under the Colonelcy of Lord Wentworth. The Regiment was first recruited from the loyal men who had followed their King into exile rather than live under tyranny, and their reward came in 1660 when the King was restored to his throne. After the Restoration, a second Royal Regiment of Guards was formed in England under the Colonelcy of Colonel John Russell. In 1665, following Lord Wentworth's death, both Regiments were incorporated into a single Regiment with twenty-four Companies, whose royal badges or devices, given by King Charles II, are still emblazoned on its Colours.

The Regiment, later termed "The First Regiment of Foot Guards", and now called "The First or Grenadier Regiment of Foot Guards", has fought in almost every major campaign of the British Army from that time until our own. Under the last two Stuart Kings it fought against the Moors at Tangiers, and in America, and even took part as Marines in the naval wars against the Dutch.

In the Wars of the Spanish Succession, the 1st Guards served under a commander who had joined the King's Company of the Regiment as an Ensign in 1667. His name was John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough who was Colonel of the Regiment and who, with his brilliant victories of Blenheim (1704), Ramillies (1706), Oudenarde (1708) and Malplaquet (1709), established his reputation as one of the greatest soldiers of all time. The 1st Guards took part in his famous march from the Low Countries to the Danube in 1704, and when the British stormed the fortified heights of the Schellenberg before Blenheim, the Regiment led the assault.

In the long series of wars against France - then the chief military power of Europe - that covered fifty-six of the 126 years between 1689 and 1815, the 1st Guards played their part. They fought at Dettingen and Fontenoy, where the superb steadiness of their advance under a murderous cannonade won the admiration of both armies. Rigid attention to detail, flawless perfection of uniform and equipment and a discipline of steel were the hard school in which the tempered metal of the Regiment was made for the service of the State. Yet running through that tradition of discipline, of harsh punishments, of undeviating rule, ran a vein of poetry, of humour, of loyalty to comrade, of sense of belonging to something greater than any individual, something undying and profound. And the letters and diaries of men of the Regiment of those days bear witness to it.

During the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, the 1st Guards, crossing to Holland in 1793, were among the first British troops to land in Europe. Driven from the Continent two years later, they returned in 1799 when another British Army attempted, though in vain, to liberate Holland. In the autumn and winter of 1808 they took part in Sir John Moore's classic march and counter-march against Napoleon in Northern Spain and, when under the terrible hardships encountered on the retreat across the wild Galician mountains the tattered, footsore troops, tested almost beyond endurance, showed signs of collapse, the 1st Foot Guards, with their splendid marching discipline, lost fewer men by sickness and desertion than any other unit in the Army. Subsequently they took part in the battle of Corunna and when Sir John Moore fell mortally wounded in the hour of victory it was men of the 1st Foot Guards who bore him, dying, from the field. Next year, they fought again in Spain under one of the great Captains of history, an officer also destined to become Colonel of the Regiment, Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington. Under Wellesley, they took part in the desperate engagements of the Peninsular War.

When, after the victorious peace that followed, Napoleon escaped from Elba and re-entered Paris, the Regiment returned to the Low Countries. In the middle of June 1815 the Emperor struck at the British and Prussian forces north of the Meuse, seeking to separate them and destroy them severally. After a fierce encounter at Quatre Bras on June 16th, 1815, in which the 3rd Battalion suffered heavy casualties, Wellington's Army withdrew to Waterloo, and on Sunday June 18th, was fought the battle in which the Regiment gained its present title and undying fame. During the morning the light companies of the Guards defended the farm of Hougoumont, the light companies of the 1st Guards being withdrawn later to join their battalions - the 2nd and 3rd Battalions. At evening these two battalions, together forming the 1st Brigade, were in position behind the ridge which gave shelter to the Army. At this point Napoleon directed his final assault with fresh troops - the Imperial Guard, which had hitherto been maintained in reserve. That assault was utterly defeated, and, in honour of their defeat of the Grenadiers of the French Imperial Guard, the 1st Guards were made a Regiment of Grenadiers and given the title of "First or Grenadier Regiment of Foot Guards" which they bear to this day.

During the Crimean War, the 3rd Battalion formed part of Lord Raglan's Army, which stormed the heights above the River Alma and besieged the Russian fortress of Sebastopol. During the early part of that grim siege was fought, in November 1854, the battle of Inkerman. The defence of the Sandbag Battery in the fog against overwhelming odds is one of the epics of British military history. On that day the Brigade of Guards, of which the 3rd Battalion of the Grenadier Guards formed part, lost half its officers and men, but not a single prisoner or an inch of ground.

The Grenadier Guards fought at Tel-el-Kebir and in the Boer War, proving the worth of discipline and esprit de corps in the era of khaki, machine guns and open order as they had done under the old dispensation of muskets and scarlet and gold. In the first Great War of 1914-18, they fought in nearly all the principle battles of the Western front. At First Ypres all but 4 officers and 200 men of the 1st Battalion and 4 officers and 140 men of the 2nd fell in action.

During this war a 4th Battalion was formed for the first time and covered itself with glory in the critical fighting in the spring of 1918. The Marne, the Aisne, Ypres, Loos, the Somme, Cambrai, Arras, Hazebrouck and the Hindenburgh Line are inscribed on the Colours of the Regiment, commemorating its part in the bloodiest war of our history. Before the final victory was won and the German Imperial Army was broken by Britain's new Armies, 12,000 casualties had been suffered by the Regiment.

In 1939 the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Battalions again returned to the Continent, forming part of the British Expeditionary Force under Lord Gort, himself a Grenadier. During the retreat of 1940, the traditional discipline of the Regiment stood the test as it had done at First Ypres, Corunna and Waterloo. Two of its Battalions fought in the Division then commanded by Major General, later Field Marshal, Montgomery and another in that commanded by Major General, later Field Marshal, Alexander. At Dunkirk, which the Regiment had garrisoned under Charles II, it took part in the defences of the perimeter, under cover of which the embarkation of the Army was made. In the course of that year the 4th Battalion was re-formed, and in 1941 two further Battalions, the 5th and 6th, were raised.

The Regiment was represented in the Eighth Army's famous advance to Tunisia, taking part in the battle of Mareth, where the 6th Battalion, the first to meet the enemy after the evacuation of Dunkirk, suffered heavy casualties but won the respect of friend and foe alike. The 3rd and 5th Battalions shared in the invasion of North Africa; all three Battalions were engaged in the invasion of Italy and the Italian campaign, the 5th Battalion forming part of the force that landed at Anzio.

Meanwhile, in England, the 2nd and 4th Battalions had been converted to armour, and the 2nd Battalion, with the 1st Battalion, which had become a Motor Battalion, served in the Guards Armoured Division under the command of Major General Allan Adair, another Grenadier, and later to become Colonel of the Regiment. The 4th Battalion formed part of the 6th Guards Tank Brigade. These three Battalions fought in the battles of Normandy and across France and Germany. In September 1944 the 1st and 2nd Battalions entered Brussels. On September 20th tanks of the 2nd Battalion and troops of the 1st Battalion crossed the Nijmegen Bridge. In 1945 the Army entered Germany.

The British public most frequently sees the Grenadier at his ceremonial duties in time of peace. But behind this ceremony lies a tradition tested on the battlefields of British history, a tradition as valid to-day as ever, a tradition of discipline, comradeship, loyalty and fidelity to one another, to the Country, and to the Crown. It was expressed by the then Colonel of the Regiment, the Prince Consort, speaking on the 200th anniversary of our formation in words that remain as true over a century later. "That same discipline which has made this Regiment ever ready and terrible in war has enabled it to pass long periods of peace in the midst of all temptations of a luxurious metropolis without the loss of vigour and energy; to live in harmony and good-fellowship with its fellow citizens; and to point to the remarkable fact that the Household Troops have for over 200 years formed the permanent garrison of London; have always been at the command of the civil power to support law and order, but have never themselves disturbed that order, or given cause of complaint, either by insolence or licentiousness. Let us hope that for centuries to come these noble qualities may still shine forth, and that the Almighty will continue to shield and favour this little band of devoted soldiers".

Post Word War 2

Since 1945 the Regiment has served in virtually every one of the "small campaigns" and crises which have marked the last few decades, and has continued its traditional and privileged task of mounting guard over the person of the Sovereign.

In the Gulf war of 1991, the 1st Battalion went from the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) - Germany - to fight in their Warrior armoured personnel carriers.desert

They then returned to London to Troop their Colour on the Queen's Birthday Parade in 1992, before going to South Armagh for a six month operational tour in Northern Ireland.

They have since carried out operational tours in the Falkland Isles, operational tours in Northern Ireland and in April 2000 were part of 12 Mechanised Brigade, ready to embark on operations worldwide.

In 2001, the deployment of troops to Heathrow airport held no surprise to see the Grenadiers, along with the Household Cavalry, deployed in an anti-terrorist role. Even though the year was just 5 weeks old, the Regiment had been on Public Duties, covered for the Firemen strike and had undertaken anti-terrorist duties.

In 2002, the Trooping the Colour Parade was somewhat of a unique occasion as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards were represented on parade by:

  • Escort - The Queen's Company
  • No 2 Guard - Nijmegan Company
  • No 3 Guard - The Inkerman Company

Today the Regiment consists of the First Battalion, Nijmegen Company, 15th Company (Regimental Headquarters and the Regimental Band), 14th Company (Guards Company - Army Training Regiment, Pirbright) and the 13th Company (Guards Company - Infantry Training Centre, Catterick).

The Right Flank Company of the 1st Battalion is called the Queen's Company. The Left Flank Company is called the Inkerman Company and retains the inherited privileges of the 3rd Battalion.

During its 2007 operational tour in Afghanistan (OP HERRICK 6), the third operational tour in as many years, the 1st Battalion was engaged in some of the fiercest and most prolonged infantry fighting the British Army had experienced in recent times.

In April 2010, the 1st Battalion returned from operations in Afghanistan (OP HERRICK 11).

On Tuesday 11 May 2010, Her Majesty The Queen presented new Colours to the 1st Battalion. The 1st Battalion subsequently Trooped their new Queen's Colour on the 2010 Queen's Birthday Parade. The old Colours were laid up in Lincoln Cathedral on Thursday 21 October 2010.

In April 2012, the 1st Battalion deployed on operations in Afghanistan (OP HERRICK 16) and retuned to the UK in October 2012.

Her Majesty presented new Colours to Nijmegen Company on Wednesday 26 June 2013.

The 1st Battalion is presently stationed in Lille Barracks, Aldershot.
