4/5/2015 SANTA RITA ALERT!
KEY ISSUES BELOW.
ADDITIONAL ISSUES LISTED ON "2015-THREAT CONTINUES".

(I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT GETTING THIS INFORMATION OUT SOONER AFTER I SPOKE WITH JASON MOORE A FEW WEEKS AGO.  I HAVE HAD FAMILY HEALTH ISSUES TO HANDLE AND HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO GET TO THIS, BUT NOW NEW EVIDENCE IS AVAILABLE ABOUT THE CITY COUNCIL'S THREAT TO MIDLAND AND HOW WE HAVE NOT BEEN TOLD EVERYTHING. JOEL)


THIS BASIC MATTER OF THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT THE SANTA RITA PROJECT.  IT IS ABOUT OUR CITY COUNCIL PUSHING TO SERVE THE DEVELOPERS AND STAKEHOLDERS OF MIDLAND AND ITS GOAL TO "TRANSFORM" MIDLAND INTO AN URBAN METRO AREA THAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT WE ARE.  PLEASE SEE THE ISSUES BELOW FOR PROOF.   

ONE KEY ISSUE IS THIS AND IT IS PROVEN:  THE CITY WANTS TO CHANGE DOWNTOWN INTO AN URBAN CENTER WTIH AUSTIN-LIKE DOWNTOWN LIVING.  THIS HAS MANY NEGATIVE EFFECTS IF YOU TRULY LOVE MIDLAND AND ARE A REAL CONSERVATIVE.  THESE ISSUES ARE:

* THE CITY IS NOT LOYAL TO MIDLAND OR WEST TEXAS IN WANTING TO MAKE US ATTRACTIVE TO NON-WEST TEXANS
* BY DOING THIS THE CITY SERVES COMMERCE AND COMMERCIAL PEOPLE, NOT US
* WHEN WE SPEAK TO THE CITY IT WILL GIVE PUT-OFF ANSWERS WITHOUT RESEARCH OR IGNORE OUR COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS (THAT IS NOT SERVING US AS THEY HAVE SWORN TO DO.)
* THE CITY IS INVOLVED IN COMMERCE MORE THAN PROTECTING OUR SAFETY AND ENJOYMENT OF OUR SPECIAL AND UNIQUE COMMUNITY 

I HAVE ALREADY COVERED THIS ISSUE IN THIS WEBPAGE THAT YOU CAN CHECK OUT.  

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE RECENT PROOF OF THIS.  WHEN YOU LINK TO THESE ITEMS UNDER "2015-THREAT CONTINUES" THERE ARE OTHER ITEMS I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT THAT SHOW MORE PROOF; SOME HAVE ALREADY BEEN COVERED IN THE PAST AND SOME ARE NEW.  

IN THE FINAL ARTICLE UNDER "2015-THREAT CONTINUES" THERE ARE OVER 20 QUESTIONS I ASK, WITH A LOT OF PROOF, THAT COVERS THESE SAME ISSUES AGAIN BUT WITH SPECIFIC QUESTIONS.  THIS WAS WRITTEN IN ORDER TO COVER THE SAME PROBLEMS IN A DIFFERENT MANNER FOR EVERYONE TO CONSIDER THE PROOF AND THE EFFECT THAT THIS CITY'S AGENDA IS HAVING ON MIDLAND.  I TRIED TO ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS IN THIS PART OF THE WEBPAGE SO PEOPLE CAN ASK THEMSELVES WHAT IS GOING ON RATHER THAN TELLING THEM JUST MY OPINIONS. 

AS I HAVE SAID ON JASON MOORE'S KWEL PROGRAM MANY TIMES AND IN THIS WEBPAGE, I DO THIS FOR 2 REASONS; 

1. I HAVE LIVED THESE CHANGES BEING FORCED ON US IN CENTRAL TEXAS, COLLEGE STATION, AND KATY TEXAS.  JUST BECAUSE WE ARE NOT AS BIG AS AUSTIN OR DALLAS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THESE CHANGES ARE NOT AFFECTING US.  THE GROWTH SHOWS NO EVIDENCE OF ENDING WHEN ONE CONSIDERS PLACES LIKE AUSTIN.  THERE ARE 2 POSSIBILITIES REGARDING THIS HERE IN MIDLAND.  

THERE WILL BE A BUST AND MANY WILL LEAVE US WITH A CITY WITH WAY TOO MANY ABANDONED BUILDINGS AND OUR TAXES WILL GO UP BECAUSE THERE ARE FEWER TO PAY FOR THE MASSIVELY INCREASED INFRASTRUCTURE. 

DUE TO THE MASSIVE GROWTH ALL OVER TEXAS, THIS GROWTH MAY NOT END AS MANY PEOPLE ARE LEAVING STATES SUCH AS CALIFORNIA TO GET AWAY FROM THEIR STATE BEING BANKRUPT AND FROM HIGHER TAXES.  IF IT DOES NOT END WE BECOME THE MINORITY AND THE NEW-COMERS GET WHAT THEY WANT BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE LITTLE EFFECT ANY MORE.

EITHER WAY, WE LOSE AND SHOULD NOT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS.


2.  ANY AMERICAN GOVERNMENT'S DUTY IS TO SERVE ITS EXISTING PEOPLE; NOT COMMERCE, DEVELOPERS, STAKEHOLDERS NOR TO BRING IN MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF NEW-COMERS WHO THEY ARE NOT SWORN TO SERVE.  IT IS OUR DUTY TO MAKE THEM SERVE US AND GET THEM OUT OF SOCIAL ENGINEERING AND PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS.  AS I TOLD JASON IN ONE OF HIS LAST PROGRAMS REGARDING THIS ADDICTION TO COMMERCE, "I DO NOT GIVE A D*** ABOUT MONEY MORE THAN I DO PRINCIPLES AND VALUES."  MIDLAND HAS BEEN A UNIQUE COMMUNITY AND IT IS OBVIOUSLY BEING TRANSFORMED INTO A COOKIE-CUTTER METRO AREA FOR MONEY. 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND 


KEY ISSUES REGARDING THE SANTA RITA PROJECT AND OUR CITY COUNCIL


1. THE TEXAS HISTORIC COMMISSION PROVES THAT IT DOES NOT COST $25M TO RESTORE OUR COURTHOUSE AS THE CITY COUNCIL SAID!  WHY DID OUR COUNTY AVOID SAVING OUR COURTHOUSE FOR THOSE WHO LOVE OUR TEXAS AND MIDLAND HERITAGE? (Link)

 

2. THE CITY COUNCIL REFUSES TO ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS!  QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CITY’S 6 ABANDONED BUILDINGS WAS SENT TO CITY MANAGER BY HOTCHKISS WITH A COMMENT TO THANK HIM FOR HIS ADVICE!  WHY DID NOT THE CITY COUNCIL ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS? (Link

 

3. THE CITY COUNCIL REFUSES TO ADMIT THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF TURNING DOWNTOWN INTO AN URBAN CENTER ALTHOUGH PROOF WAS SENT THEM. (Link)

 

4. COUNCILMAN SCOTT DUFFORD WRITES ARTICLE BASICALLY SHOWING WHO RUNS OUR CITY FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.  WHY DOES OUR CITY GOVERNMENT NOT SEE THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST OF BEING INVOLVED IN COMMERCE?  WHY DO THEY NOT PROTECT US FROM CRIME AND BAD TRAFFIC RATHER THAN CONSTANTLY PROMOTING MIDLAND AS A MARKET?  (Link)

WELCOME TO THE SITE DESIGNED TO TAKE BACK OUR MIDLAND GOVERNMENT AND TRULY PRESERVE OUR MIDLAND HERITAGE, STOP THE ENERGY TOWER, AND PREVENT AN OVERCROWDED URBAN LIFESTYLE DOWNTOWN!


REMEMBER: GOVERNMENT SHOULD FEAR ITS PEOPLE. 
PEOPLE SHOULD NOT FEAR THEIR GOVERNMENT.


"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny" Thomas Jefferson

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent" Thomas Jefferson


Government
exists to serve us!  Not for us to ignore them and allow them to push their commercial and political gains by voting against us.  Don't see this?  Ask the residents north of Blue Ridge or the Midland Dr. residents where the city tried to force the Dollar General Store on them against their will. How about the energy tower funding of 9/17/2013, two weeks after the mayor implied it would not be voted on until the new council took office in 2014? 

This issue is known as a P3, as public-private partnership.  We have had this idea sold to us as capitalism but it is a lie.  It is corporatism.  The city government is designed to serve US not developers!  The 9/17/2013 Term Sheet showed who they served...Energy Related Properties.  A P3 makes a bigger government because two powerful entities, business and government, have been united.  It is government's job to make sure that business does not get out of hand and they cannot objectively keep business under control from harming our neighborhoods or community through their greed if they are partners with them. 

P3's ARE INSIDER TRADING FOR FAVORED PEOPLE, NOT THE CITIZENS!!!!!
  










                                   ALERTS
 


IS THE SANTA RITA HOTEL AGENDA ANY DIFFERENT FROM THE ENERGY TOWER? 

3 key issues: 

1)  Midland City Council continues to NOT serve us and hide secrets. 
Proof:  City Council has REFUSED to answer our questions about their manipulation of their abandoned downtown buildings. 

2)  The cost of restoring our courthouse would be about $12M and not $25M as stated by the city council. 
Proof:  Texas Historic Commission sent documents showing the estimated costs along with photos and comments of how great it would be to preserve it. 

3)  The city continues to want to socially engineer our downtown into an urban center. 
Proof:  Quotes


NO!  It is the same agenda as before obviously meant to benefit the downtown stakeholders and certain retailers who want an excessive market downtown full of urbanites, not West Texans.

THE ISSUES OF THEIR AGENDA:
1.  Evidence that the City Council has REFUSED to answer our questions.  What are they hiding?  (This article shows proof.)
2.  Urban cities have many negative effects that do not match how we live in Midland. 
3.  Synopsis of the city plan. 

This does not mean commerce is bad.  It is about destroying our wonderful historic courthouse rather than using the other 6 abandoned buildings the city owns downtown.  It is about socially engineering downtown into something to attract urbanites who DO NOT LIVE AS WE DO AND WILL HARM OUR WAY OF LIFE FOR US AND THE CHILDREN.

WE ARE OUT OF TIME TO SAVE MIDLAND!
I BRING THIS UP BECAUSE WE ARE ALMOST OUT OF TIME AND IF THIS THING GOES THROUGH IT WILL SOCIALLY ENGINEER OUR DOWNTOWN INTO AN LIBERAL URBAN CENTER WITH INCREASED CRIME, IMMORALITY, AND THESE NEGATIVE EFFECTS WILL HARM THE CHILDREN OF MIDLAND AS THEY ARE TOUGHT TO ACCEPT THESE ISSUES AS PART OF LIFE.  THAT IS A PROBLEM BECAUSE TRUE LEADERSHIP WOULD PREVENT A SPECIAL TOWN SUCH AS MIDLAND FROM BECOMING THIS!

This new page of this website is located under "2015-THREAT CONTINUES". 

PLEASE TELL THE  CITY AT THE MEETINGS OR VIA EMAIL, PHONE, MAIL, ETC. THAT YOU DO NOT WANT OUR COURTHOUSE AND PATRIOTIC HISTORICAL CENTENNIAL PLAZA DESTROYED FOR COMMERCE!

I am asking all who care, to show up at the meetings the city is holding and bring these subjects up.  NOTE:  the city council and its developers will try and make you feel BAD to ask these questions with comments such as those already listed on this webpage (Example: 

“MAYBE SOME ARE READY FOR THE CITY OF MIDLAND TO DIE” ), ignoring you, switching the subject to get you off track, etc.  


PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS STOP YOU.  
1. STICK TO SIMPLE QUESTIONS. 
2. IGNORE THEIR DIVERSIONS AND BRING THEM BACK TO YOUR QUESTION(S). 
3. CALL THEM OUT IF THEY DO NOT ANSWER PROPERLY.  RE-ASK THE QUESTION.
4.  INSIST ON YOUR 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO SPEAK OUT. 




CONTENT

What are the issues of Midland?  Traffic, crime, a secret deal made by the city government for the Energy Tower, bad planning & zoning against citizens, and a city government that seems obsessed with commercialism and money but shows little interest in our quality-of-life.  This last issue alone is leading to a bloated government that is becoming too big for us to retain control of.  This has been a delightful place to live with endearing qualities.  With this much excessive change we are losing that and the city has planned more change in their Midland Smart Downtown Plan and Master Plan. 


Summary of What This Website is About
This article gives a synopsis of the issues and purposes of this website.  It is 1 page long.  In my opinion our community is a precious and unique place that you cannot find just anywhere.  It is critical that we protect what we love or it will be gone forever in a few years.  If our city government wants to do this for the "youth", then what effects will increased prostitution, drugs, gangs, and human trafficking have upon them?  What effects will a downtown urban center built on vanity and always known as an area of immorality have on the youth?  The detailed issues will be discussed in the Content items below.  This summary is designed to express why what we have in Midland is special and why we need to expose and take back control of our city government's agenda to change Midland into something that we have never been.


A LIST OF KEY ISSUES OF THE “DEATH” OF MIDLAND
This article is a list of Midland's problems with brief comments so you can find items that you are looking for more easily without having to read so much.  It is basically a summary.  

"Maybe Some are Ready for the City of Midland to Die"
This article discusses propaganda comments designed to convince us that the we should be ashamed to oppose the money ruling elite and just accept how wonderful their anti-Midland ideas are because it makes them money.  After all we don't want to use our Constitutional rights to oppose our local government.  We might lose our jobs or lose some business because of their powerful influence on the community.

Midland Texas and the Ill Effects of Urban Living
This article ties together almost all of the issues we see here in Midland from our traffic and crime problems to the fact and proof that our city government is pushing for major change of Midland.  Why does our city government wish to sacrifice the endearing qualities of this unique and special town for commerce?  There are numerous urls for you to link to, to read the articles for yourself.  Not all of these articles are against urban living they simply point out the issues and some offer solutions; however, is it not better to prevent these negative effects on our community to begin with rather than creating them?





Conflicts of Interest
You will benefit from reading this because you will see that our city government is hiding the truth about their dealings with this tower and trying to keep us at bay so we do not oppose them.

This site has the pdf of all the emails sent to this effort requested under the first Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  We have received another FOIA but have not had time to review the 1600+ pages.  It is unlikely that the pdf will fit into the memory of the site so we will have to pick the issues and summarize.  Some of these emails show that there are conflicts of interest for Wes Perry and Wendell "Scooter" Brown of Wexford Capital that is funding the Energy Tower. 


Contradictions?
This article will list another set of FOIA emails that give evidence that the comments we received from city leaders regarding the "Memo of Understanding" and other issues do not add up.



MRT States Some Agreement with What This Website Has Stated
The 12/30/2013 MRT wrote its own editorial regarding the Tower and its issues at the end of 2013.  These include the facts that the city has not offered a public forum to discuss the tower (evidence the city is hiding the deal and knows that we oppose it-my comment), that the city voted on the TIRZ and MDC funding to show that the "citizens" supported the tower to help ERP get tenants, this early vote diminished the issue from the November election, and will Morales be any different from the previous administration on this deal.  I have simply posted the short article for your review at this link to see the evidence.


Why Energy Tower is a bad idea
There are 3 major reasons why the Energy Tower is bad for Midland: 1) It is driven by a public-private collaboration between our city government and ERP over which there are many concerns by the people and a number of issues from city leaders that show they are trying to hide the details; 2) there will be horrible traffic issues created not only downtown but on all the arteries feeding downtown, which will fill the areas around many neighborhoods with traffic; 3)  The tower will likely bring much cultural change to downtown that is contrary to our Midland way-of-life, which is known as social engineering and the "leaders" even admit it.  However there is a deeper issue involved.  The Downtown Revitalization pushed by our city government under their Midland Smart Downtown Plan.


Energy Tower Details
This contains many examples of what is wrong with the Energy Tower including many citations from the media. These articles include evidence that the tower is about vanity, greed, and social engineering our town into a cosmopolitan area not about preserving our heritage or traditions.

Midland Smart Downtown Plan
http://www.midlandtexas.gov/DocumentCenter/View/786


The Midland Smart Downtown Plan, also available at the URL above, contains the "Big Bang Scenario" (Pg. 36) that lists a future project exactly like this proposed tower downtown and exactly at Centennial Plaza.  Note that the city has created a new website and the url for the Downtown Plan and Master Plans have changed.

 Midland Master Plan 2025

http://www.midlandtexas.gov/DocumentCenter/View/785

The Master Plan is very much about promoting commerce in Midland and making Midland a cosmopolitan area with little that I have found about preserving our traditions and quality-of-life.  It specifically endorses increased downtown population and living (Objective D-1.3). 

An interesting contradiction is in their mission statement found on pg. 86, "Midland will be the region's premier community for family's and business.  Then the very first goal that they promote is Objective A-1 (pg. 86) "Continue proactive planning and development related to the La Entrada corridor".  This is the NAFTA road on IH-20.  The Sheriff has stated that these NAFTA roads will be a real problem for gangs, drugs, and human trafficking as Midland grows.  Why does our city promote a North American Union highway that will certainly cause more crime in Midland, immediately after starting that "families" are one of their 2 key issues?  How can families be better with this level of crime?  What sounds more important to them:  families or business?




Create the Problem that Leads to the Desired Solution? (Hegelian Dialectic)
Are the problems we see in our world today purposely done in order to create a solution that takes away more of our rights?  Are we having this same problem here in Midland since our city government has failed to solve our growth problems after 5-6 years in spite of their aiding the generation of these problems by promoting Midland as a commodity? 




Public Private Collaboration (P3's)
One major issue with the Energy Tower is the fact that it is a public-private collaboration aka public-private partnership (P3).  When government is making deals with a special interest group and their are millions of dollars involved, who will they vote for:  Us or their business partner?


Public Private Collaboration - Midland

This 2nd article on P3's ties the first article to how they can affect our town of Midland.



Federal Reserve Example of P3's
Probably the worst P3 to have ever been created in America is the Federal Reserve, a private bank that controls our country's money.  See this ancillary article to "Public-Private Collaboration" regarding P3's as an example of why P3's are very dangerous.



Trans-Texas Corridor Example of P3's
See this article regarding how the Trans-Texas Corridor is a P3 that is trying to give our Texas land away to a foreign company as a monopoly while taking from us under eminent domain.



Abusive Capitalism
Capitalism can be corrupted and abused like anything else in the world.  Do not take someone's comment about how a project is "capitalism" without looking into it.  Government partnerships with business are not free-market capitalism.  The energy tower is just that and appears to be a move toward monopolistic control over our downtown area.




ZONING ISSUES
Midland Zoning Issues
This portion of webpage discusses how the city government has forced zoning issues on its constituents against their will in order to appeal to developers.  Do we have a housing shortage or a population crisis?  If you want 10's of thousands more customers for your retail business or employees you probably think of it as a housing shortage.  If you love the endearing qualities of the Midland that we have loved, you likely see that developers and business is being served and not the average Midlander.  It is important to understand that this much change for vanity and greed are NOT endearing qualities or intrinsic values.  Growing one's business is great but what gives the city government the right to take advantage of a boom with approximately 23 million Americans unemployed during a drought to transform our city into something to attract as many as possible?  What gives the city the right to change Midland into a 24/7 business area with constant stress and traffic and crime against the will of the core of Midland and against the traditions of Midland living?


HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL THREAT!

The Hike & Bike Master Plan of Midland does not fit our way-of-life

HIKE & BIKE TRAILS ARTICLE

The following is a video of the 5/19/2014 hike and bike meeting here in Midland.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VxXZVzXr8c

This article reviews some of the details of this 5/19/2014 meeting.  You can see the video and then review these key issues.  This liberal from Austin specifically speaks about pushing hiking and biking on people.  Why?  Isn't that a personal choice?  Is he trying to "save" America from "global warming" by removing our cars and pickups from us?  By the way, is that what this LIBERAL downtown revitalization is about, by getting urban pop-culture to live downtown a day so we save gasoline 

Bicycling is great exercise but why ruin our already crowded roads and streets to attract 'young people who expect amenities you'd find in Dallas or Austin"?  (See David Ham comments in 05/19/2014 MRT http://www.mrt.com/top_stories/article_58fd330c-dfff-11e3-b2cb-001a4bcf887a.html ).  Why pay $20K+ per mile to have a white line painted on the side of a street that will do nothing to prevent a  vehicle and bicycle collision?  If young people like it here then stay.  If not leave. 

This article reviews some of the details of this 5/19/2014 meeting.  You can see the video and then review these key issues.  This liberal from Austin specifically speaks about pushing hiking and biking on people.  Why?  Isn't that a personal choice?  Is he trying to "save" America from "global warming" by removing our cars and pickups from us?  By the way, is that what this LIBERAL downtown revitalization is about, by getting urban pop-culture to live downtown a day so we save gasoline 

Why is he pushing to narrow our roads and make traffic worse while traffic has done nothing but get worse in the last 3 years?  Why does our city council hire someone like this?  See comment by David Ham of Peyton's Bikes (5/20/2014 MRT). 

By the way, why is our city pursuing this multi million dollar project to make Midland appealing to Liberals?  Possibly to change our town so certain companies can have more employees although more and more crime and congestion and rudeness enter our special community due to this boom?  Why does our city do this rather than handling our serious problems of water, 1st responders, and teachers?  And do not tell me that they are handling these issues.  If they were then we would see these issues declining.

THE FUTURE OF MIDLAND

Articles About the Potential Future of Midland

This portion of the webpage includes crime, traffic, and social issues affecting Midland and examines how our city government is not protecting Midland from these changes but are promoting them so that they can make Midland appealing to a totally different group of people:  urbanites, non-Texans, big business.
