In 9 months, they have done nothing on the appeal whatsoever except order the transript, lolland now this
to me this sounds ridiculous.....in 7 more months, what is to stop the ACOE from promoting this guy, and apoligizing but also then getting in a new gov flunkie "review" scammer?
Here is why this is an obvious scam: You do not promote anybody who has been working on this. You tell them, after they clean up their work, they then may be eligible for a promotion. Where is the accountabillity? This guy just came in the office one day, and his bosses said, you are being promoted, dump it all, we can get some other clown in here, leave it there, all the stuff on the floor, who cares, your career is so good and valuable.....screw your work, screw your responsibiities, it has taken you 7 months so far on this to do absolutlely nothing. Who cares man?
With government workers, and I have dealt with them for over 3 decades, they have 3 things that matter to them: 1. their retirement parties, a lot of them have two or three of these things; 2. which red state will they be retiring to, and 3. leaving their current post, dumping all their work they have been working on, and getting a new position. Then a new flunkie comes in, and takes forever to get caught up to speed.
You can see here that ACOE is completely corrupt (as well as incompetant). They also talk about the amount of pages, -but we all -know that 99% of that is nonsense. As an appellant adminstrative judge, all you are doing is looking at the majjor conclusions. You have a deicison that this criminal guy made (and he probably did not write most of his own decision btw), and then you look at the 9 conclusions he made, and you look in the FEIS to see if his conclusions were logical. THAT IS IT....AND THE CRIMINAL WHO WROTE THE DECISION SHOULD HAVE WROTE IN THE DECISION THE BASIS FOR HIS CONCLUSIONS RIGHT THERE, IN THE VERY DECISION ITSELF, THEREBY DOING THE WORK FOR THE APPEALS JUDGE..
An appeals refereee or appeals judge does not redo the 4 years that it takes for the original trial to take place, nor does any appeals court in the country. They just look at the ruling below, and under basic law school appellate rules, see if it is supported and credible....and the decision is supposed to reference all of this itself. If not, you quickly reverse, and enter your own ruling, or say, we are gonna remand as the judge below wrote a piece of crap and we will give him one last opportunity to try to support his conclusions in written form, by citing to the record, in this case the FEIS...
They do not redo a trial that took 3 aor 4 years to prepare. LOL....This ruling is ridiculous citing 200,000 pages....it is real government flunkie nonsense that the ACOE wrote, to cover their tracks.
In other words, the s c u m from hawaii, the hispanic guy, the engineer, is supposed to make a ruling and then cite to the FEIS the support for his ruling. Real simple stuff. And then the appeals guy checks to see if the hispanic engineer has a clue or is crooked or incompetant or both. What you do not do, is review 200,000 pages of stuff, 99% is completely irrelevant to anything. So you see the ACOE is completely riddled with incompetance and corruption. They will delay and delay forever. and I guarantee, in 8 months from now, they will send it back to the original engineer, and give him some questions to answer, "affirming in part, reversing in part," his decision. Then he will sit on it for another 6 months, and write a decision that denies the permit once again. Then it will be appealed yet again, and in about 6 months you will see the appeals referee make a decision affirming the decision below, which is to deny the permit.....
then NAK will appeal it, and the same thing will happen in the appeals court, whereby eventually it will get kicked back or denied....The project is dead until 2025 at the earliest, and even then......honestly the odds of this permit ever issuing before 2025 is slim to none....I know I sound harsh, but when you are dealing with a corrupt federal agency, and these days they are either corrupt or criminal or both (not incompetant, since they know they are simply deep sixing this project btw. These are woke communists, that is what you are dealing with, and I am glad some here have taken my advice all along and sold this. I do not think Trump if re elected can fix this, as he is too much of a soft touch; he fired 2% of the people he should have, and it took him a year or more to do even one guy........If DeSantis wins, the project has a chance...You can forget about the 9th circuit, they are completely corrupt not a prayer. For get the court system, as the supreme court won't touch it, imho...........do you own dd these are my personal opinions.
