The United States Doesn’t Own the Mississippi River



Reprinted with permission


The United States does not have exclusive ownership of the Mississippi River.  This is evidenced by the statutes within the United States Code (U.S.C.).  Let’s start with the Constitution at Article VI.

The first paragraph of Article VI of the Constitution reads as follows:

“All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before    the  Adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United   States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.”

This simple paragraph lays waste to the commonly held opinion that the Articles of Confederation were simply abandoned with the ratification of the Constitution.  To understand the history of the United States one must study the official historical legislative documents of the United States.

After the revolution, the Peace Treaty of 1783 was made between the United States and Great Britain.  A copy of the Peace Treaty of 1783 is included:  Peace Treaty of 1783.  This was during the time that the Articles of Confederation were the governing law of the land.  Article 8 of the Peace Treaty of 1783 follows:

“The navigation of the river Mississippi, from its source to the ocean, shall forever remain free and open to the subjects of Great  Britain and the citizens of the United States.”

At the time that the Peace Treaty of 1783 was made, the Mississippi River was basically the western border of the new United States of America.  The Spanish, the French, and Great Britain were all still vying for the remaining land of the New World. More

Wisconsin Reports: The Fiefdom of Fifield.

Wisconsin Reports: The Fiefdom of Fifield

 The monster known as Smart Growth, Agenda 21, has reared its ugly head here on the banks of Byhre Creek; the Town of Fifield has decided to go ahead with comprehensive planning.  

Having disbanded a few years back due to lack of interest on the part of Price County and surrounding municipalities and the subsequent reduction in the amount of grant monies that would have been received, the planning committee was revived.  Despite a statement made by Doug Noetzel, town chairman, regarding past committee members being requested to serve; again certain individuals were ominously omitted despite requests to again serve. 

Back in July 2009 the board approved an ordinance enabling the Comprehensive Planning Commission. This ordinance among other things, stated the commission would abide by open meetings laws and is certainly subject to existing statutes; or are they?  

In the property tax notices that went out in December of 2009 there was a slip of paper indicating that a hearing would be held on the plan January 21st 2010, and that the plan would be available at the town hall and the Park Falls public library.  State statute § 66.1001 regulates the actions necessary for a municipality, if the municipality enters into land use planning, two of which are to foster public participation and respond to concerns of citizens.  This statute requires 30 day posting of the plan to various state agencies, surrounding municipalities and the aforementioned locations.  The responsibility to see this is done lies with commission chair Leona DeRemer, who is also a town board supervisor.  However with less than two weeks before the January 21st hearing, no copies of the plan were available.   More

Suit seeks immediate injunction, cites BLM’s violations of four Congressional Acts

New York City, NY (October 7, 2010)— A case filed today against Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar in federal court aims to stop the elimination of wild horses from Colorado’s North Piceance herd area. Plaintiffs Habitat for Horses (HfH), the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), The Cloud Foundation (TCF), Toni Moore and Dr. Don Moore challenge the BLM’s ongoing illegal treatment of wild horses residing on public lands and it’s intention to completely remove all wild horses from this area beginning October 11, 2010.

The Plaintiffs’ attorneys, Bruce Wagman (Schiff Hardin) and Valerie Stanley, are asking the court for an injunction to stop BLM from removing any of these wild horses pending a complete judicial review of the BLM’s conduct. The complaint cites four counts and violations committed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM): violation of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Information Quality Act and the Federal Land Policy Management Act. The suit has been brought against BLM Director Robert Abbey and Field Manager of the Colorado White River Field Office Kent Walter, in addition to Secretary Salazar.

“The BLM’s ‘shoot from the hip’ policy of indiscriminately destroying and removing long standing wild horse herds has to come to an end,” says R.T. Fitch, Volunteer Executive Director of co-supporting organization HfH Advisory Council, “Poor accounting, outdated data and disengagement from the reality of the range is the hallmark of the BLM’s business plan. They must be stopped.” More
