BLM overlooks arsenic & mercury, but gets rid of wild horses

In 2010, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) gave the green light to the expansion of a mining project within the Triple B Herd Management Area (HMA) in Nevada, even knowing about mercury in the watershed and higher levels of arsenic in the surface water. Since grazing allotments seem to be in the hydrographic basin with “mercury deposition contributions to the watershed,” this would seem to put human food and health at risk. The BLM turned a blind eye and approved this project, and now they’re falling all over themselves to declare there’s not enough water for the wild horses because of “drought” and they now plan to waste taxpayer dollars on water trapping, and later helicopter roundups, to remove the wild horses.

But you can’t say they’re not rosy optimists. In the 2009 Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Bald Mountain Mine (the mining project given approval to expand operations), under Surface Water, BLM states:

 “In general, established background water quality levels are good with the exception of arsenic, which exceeds the 0.05 mg/l Nevada water quality standard.”

In other words, the water quality is good, except for all the arsenic, which is higher than a safe level. How much does it exceed the Nevada water quality standard?

It kind of makes you wonder if part of the BLM’s hurry to remove wild horses is to avoid having a bunch of horses drop dead in a pile somewhere from water contamination. Not that the BLM would care about the horses, but they wouldn’t want anything to further damage their poor (and continually plummeting) public image.

It seems that BLM’s idea of a “thriving ecological balance” and concern about “degradation to the range” is very selective. The only thing “green” about this is the money that’s being raked in while public lands are being raped. Again, the BLM has asked for public comments, which again, they will ignore. My comment about their latest plan to get rid of the wild horses is: More

SCOTUS & Eric Holder: Its political pimpin’ pimpin’, man!

Note:  I wrote this article last night in anticipation of what I was sure would be the results of SCOTUS….unfortunatley I was absolutely correct in my predicition on the outcome of Citizens v Obamacare.  The Court voted to uphold this unconstitional assault on America.  Just one more reason this court needs to be rendered defunct.

____________________________________________________________________

For a portion of this afternoon, I flipped back and forth between the tedious and twisted up oral arguments in the Supreme Court for and against Obamacare and the political pimping going on, on MSNBC about the pending vote of [contempt of congress] against Eric Holder, the US Attorney General. MSNBC is of course the lefts’ counter to FAUX News on the right, and these days has about as much credibility.

Those magic black robes!

I doubt there are any of us out here who think or believe that Obamacare is even remotely constitutional. Yet the Supreme’s and the attorney’s talked endlessly about whether or not the penalty tax was really a tax or just a penalty while every one of them knew it was a penalty tax meant to raise revenue and to coerce unwilling individuals into a system they don’t want to be a part of.  Simply put:  It is legislative extortion meant to raise revenue or, involuntary forced compliance which will also raise revenue.

At one point, the argument from the bench was that Social Security was also a tax that everyone had to pay. Only that isn’t really true, and neither is it true in regards to Obamacare. I have no intentions of getting into this any further except to say that Obamacare is a direct assault on individual rights and is clearly unconstitutional from start to finish. Congress knew it when they passed it and the president knew it when he signed it into law. The Supreme’s also know this and I can hardly wait to hear the convoluted rationale to be given to explain why they did not declare the entire mess unconstitutional. But I have no doubt that they will uphold this unconstitutional assault on the public.

I consider this to be Citizens v Obamacare opinion which will rival the Citizens v United for position #1 on the greatest failures of this court to defend and protect the Constitution for the people of the United States.

SCOTUS on illegal immigration

4 Comments

Marti Oakley        Copyright 2012- All Rights Reserved

______________________________________________________________________

On June 25th, 2012, the Supreme Court issued its final ruling on SB 1070, the law passed by Arizona to deal with illegal immigration that has been not only allowed by the federal government, but also encouraged.  The court struck down three of the primary points of the legislation, yet left one standing: Police can inquire about immigration status if an individual is being investigated for a criminal act, while they have him/her in custody.

SCOTUS went on to rule that the individual in question cannot be held longer than usual while that investigation occurs, but issued no guidelines on how long [usual] is, or could be.  This blatant omission of course is laying the groundwork for subsequent lawsuits brought by illegal immigrants in the future who will claim abuse.

It is alleged that the private prison industry which is flourishing in states like Arizona, actually wrote the legislation in anticipation of greater numbers of prisoners from which greater profits could be made.  This is more than likely, true.  The private corporate prison is a fast growing business in the US as these corporations engage in human trafficking for profit.  I cannot think of any other way to efficiently describe what the business is of these prisons, otherwise.

SCOTUS’ main contention was that the States cannot overstep the Federal government to deal with illegal immigration.  That is the job of the federale’s.  Only they aren’t doing their job and have not for more than two decades as the US has been steadily colonized by illegal immigrants who have found protection and privilege provided by the same agencies charged with defending our borders from just such an influx of illegal residents.

From the newly and constantly revised US Code & Title 8, regarding defense of our inland and coastal borders and just whom is charged with defending that border, we find this revision in the code: More

Dan Peterson is the Executive Director of Florida Property Rights Coalition, a fast growing group of property rights activists.  UN Agenda 21 calls for the end of individual property ownership and with the complicity of our own state and federal governments is moving ahead in their efforts to end or severely restrict individual property rights.

“Sadly, over the past few decades, there has been a steady erosion of these fundamental tenets of our nation. The ever-growing maze of regulatory restrictions on property use is placing excessive burdens on property owners. And, the growth of government and government owned property is contributing to the rapid disappearance of private property all together. These trends are growing at an alarmingly accelerated rate and must be reversed!

The CPR website is designed to help you in your advocacy for private property rights.”

Another attack on the Second Amendment: UN Small Arms Treaty

36 Comments

Marti Oakley        ©    Copyright 2012 All Rights Reserved

___________________________________________________________

The United Nations, that bastion of self-enriching, bloated gas bags, will soon be holding a month long convention on the UN Small Arms TREATY between 192 nations. Of course, Hillary Clinton is right in the middle of things in an effort to commit the US to this unconstitutional treaty.

Because this is a treaty, and not one of those federal corporate contract agreements the presidents are so fond of, it will have to be brought to the states for ratification (See U.S. Const. art. II, § . Section 3 provides the power to make treaties (with the advice and consent of two-thirds of the Senate)) except I don’t believe that will ever happen.  Some, never heard of before, political slight of hand will be given as the reason as to why ratification of the treaty by the states was by-passed

Clinton will agree to the treaty on behalf of the US and Obama will sign it with great pleasure.  For decades it has been the intent of the federal government to disarm lawful gun owners in the US.. Every possible excuse and reason has been used to try and sell the idea of striking down the 2nd Amendment by both partys.  The actual intent is, by U.N. mandate to disarm private individual gun owners in America claiming a global treaty banning the ownership of small arms.  Its all for world peace!  It will make the military assaults on all nations far easier if the general population isn’t armed and able to mount even a limited defense.

Don’t look to the District of Criminals for help!

If you think other than a few Republicans and even fewer Democrats will half-heartedly object or stand to defend our constitution or our inalienable rights of any kind, much less the right to keep and bear arms, you are sadly mistaken.  Both partys have been equally active in their assaults on the constitution, with members of both partys actively promoting the militarization of local law enforcement against their respective communities.  Our police and many sheriffs departments are now para-military organizations capable and willing to turn on their own communities in subservience to Homeland Security edicts and orders.  Regarding this, the District of Criminals couldn’t be happier.

Jonell Grace: Guardianship Abuse

13 Comments

Marti Oakley

_______________________________________________________________________

The ongoing theft of estates from vulnerable elderly and disabled individuals has been largely ignored by those in the District of Criminals, and by local and state governments.  What has to be the largest transfer of wealth by theft, is accomplished with immoral attorneys and probate judges rigging the system in favor of the predatory guardian.

In what is clearly a case of state to state racketeering, probate judges, payrolling attorneys and predatory guardians have stolen millions upon millions by way of so-called emergency petitions for guardianship implemented for no other reason than to allow these crooks to access the victims assets.

While politicians at all levels are fully aware of the ongoing theft committed in every state, and the unexplained sudden deaths as estates are wiped out and assets moved to into private accounts by the predators, not one of them has stepped up to stop this from happening.  According to many of these politicans, things like this take time to change.  It could be years before they could fix the system.

My question is this: Why?   So much evidence has been compiled in verified court documents and with continual annual reports from the GAO spanning eleven years to confirm the problem is not greedy family members in most cases.  It is the predatory guardians along with attorneys and judges who are perpetrating these crimes against the elderly.

The video’s below are a testament to one woman’s refusal to be bullied, threatened and harrassed by those who run the system.  Jonell Grace is that woman. More

Democrats Against UN Agenda 21

10 Comments

PPJ Note:  While many like to insist that the only people fighting Agenda 21 are Tea Party’iers, the fact is, a massive number of Democrats are opposed to it also.  Agenda 21 is the foundational plan for ending property rights and ownership and for far more than this.  One of the premiere speakers exposing this insidious plan is Rosa Koire.  Rosa authored the book “Behind the Green Mask” and travels across the country speaking in her efforts to expose Agenda 21 for the threat that it is.  So for all you “lefties” out there, here is a place for you to express your disgust over UN Agenda 21. Please visit Democrats Against Agenda 21 for more information including tips on what you can do.

SOUNDS LIKE SCIENCE FICTION…OR SOME CONSPIRACY THEORY…BUT IT ISN’T.

UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all information, and all human beings in the world. INVENTORY AND CONTROL.

Have you wondered where these terms ‘sustainability’ and ‘smart growth’ and ‘high density urban mixed use development’ came from? Doesn’t it seem like about 10 years ago you’d never heard of them and now everything seems to include these concepts? Is that just a coincidence? That every town and county and state and nation in the world would be changing their land use/planning codes and government policies to align themselves with…what?

First, before I get going, I want to say that yes, I know it’s a small world and it takes a village and we’re all one planet etc. I also know that we have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, and that as cumbersome as that can be sometimes (Donald Rumsfeld said that the Chinese have it easy; they don’t have to ask their people if they agree. And Bush Junior said that it would be great to have a dictator as long as he was the dictator), we have a three branch government and the Bill of Rights, Constitution, and self-determination. This is one of the reasons why people want to come to the US, right? We don’t have Tiananmen Square here, generally speaking (yes, I remember Kent State–not the same, and yes, an outrage.) So I’m not against making certain issues a priority, such as mindful energy use, alternative energy sponsorship, recycling/reuse, and sensitivity to all living creatures.

But then you have UN Agenda 21. What is it? See our videos and radio shows at the bottom of this page (or search YouTube for Rosa Koire) or buy BEHIND THE GREEN MASK: U.N. Agenda 21 by Rosa Koire click here

Considering its policies are woven into all the General Plans of the cities and counties, it’s important for people to know where these policies are coming from. While many people support the United Nations for its peacemaking efforts, hardly anyone knows that they have very specific land use policies that they would like to see implemented in every city, county, state and nation. The specific plan is called United Nations Agenda 21 Sustainable Development, which has its basis in Communitarianism. By now, most Americans have heard of sustainable development but are largely unaware of Agenda 21. More

THE WORLD IS CHOKING ON CARTOONISH HYPOCRISY  

The very ‘humans’ who have gained their immense wealth and power through the centuries from the sweat and toil of others, and who have arranged the world to steal anything they want without lifting a finger, are the same ones who have appointed themselves as the new God’s of the universe.  These carnival barkers actually believe they have the final word on who, and how many humans belong on this planet!!  Of course, we have yet to see any of them step up and volunteer to be an example to the rest of us in their zealotry to demonize “the earth’s human plague”, and actually help reduce the world’s population!!

Any critically thinking person would be looking over their shoulder for the white coats to take us away in straightjackets if WE went around spouting the very same ludicrous nonsense they have come up with.  Global warming has turned into climate change??  Now there’s something you can’t argue with!!  It’s why weather reports were invented!  I suppose that the sky being blue will be the next ‘proof’ that ‘we’ are causing the moon to exit the universe.

The hysterical and rabid environmental ‘Gods’ seem to have been blessed with crystal balls and know exactly how the earth is going to behave, and what the weather will be 75 years from now.   What they’ve done is create a casino where they can take bets on what the temperature will be tomorrow, or on any given day in the year 2062, while they control the temperatures with their chemicals dispersed in the sky and electronic toys (HAARP).

One doesn’t even need to look beneath the surface or read between the lines, to see the gigantic lies, blatant deceptions, and the insanity of it all.  You have to think that trying to pull off this grand scheme, and how voraciously absurd it is, is part of the rush they are thoroughly enjoying, while they madly jerk on their multitude of puppet strings.  The mind drifts easily to the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain, after they’ve led the gullible masses down the green brick road.

Michigan: “Finally Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you are all so interested in my vagina

13 Comments

John Boering

This is a major Jackass Alert!

Apparently, in Michigan, its ok to legislate a woman’s vagina, especially when you don’t have one and are most likely never going to have one, but not alright to say the word “vagina”.  I can only assume in Michigan that [vagina] is a dirty word if you are Republican.  Not only do I find this incredibly juvenile thinking, but I also find it more than offensive that no such prohibition was placed on the word “penis”.  There is reason for that!

Never at any time has there been any legislation regulating the male penis and what males may or may not do with them regarding reproductive rights. Never!  I suppose that should make me feel somewhat safe, but somehow it just gives me the creeps.

I’m just curious here……but how in the world did they discuss this attack on a woman’s right to choose, without mentioning, discussing or referring to the female body and its genitalia?

I can only conclude, after having been driven insane by religious nuttery and mysticism and GOP emotional lunacy…….Republicans are no longer sure what a vagina actually is and what it actually does.  Maybe those Republicans should check with their mistresses……that might help shed some light on what they are talking about.  Or having failed to secure “another woman”, they could ask Rush Limpbaugh.

As for me, I will be waiting for that equally offensive legislation that will make it a felony for a man to contribute to an unwanted pregnancy.  Of course legislation like that might put a damper on keeping a woman on the side…….I mean, if you actually knew you would get in trouble for passing yourself around like  hors d’oeuvres on a tray, you might check yourself before you wreck yourself.

But here it is from Daily KOZ

Tell Michigan Republicans that if they don’t like it when female lawmakers say “vagina,” then they should stop legislating vaginas. Click here to send Michigan Republicans an email.

Earlier this week, during a debate over one of the most restrictive anti-choice bills yet, Michigan state Rep. Lisa Brown read a letter from a voter that concluded with a message for Republican Speaker of the House Jase Bolger:

“Finally Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you are all so interested in my vagina, but no means no.”

Bolger promptly barred Rep. Brown from speaking on the House floor the next day. Apparently Michigan Republicans think it’s okay to legislate vaginas, but not okay to talk about them.

Click here to tell Jase Bolger that if he doesn’t like it when lawmakers say the word “vagina,” then he should stop legislating vaginas.

Investor State Tribunals: The Trans-Atlantic Partnership AGREEMENT

A huge collection of federal corporate agents that we call “senators” and “representatives” will soon be jumping in front of Lame Street Media camera’s just for the chance to tell you how this new agreement will create thousands of new jobs.  And it will!  Only not here in the US.  These same corporate puppets will poo-poo the idea that this corporate government agreement will render our laws null and void against marauding corporations.  They will tell you that it will boost states economies to have foreign investors buying land and exploiting resources.  They will tell you any lie they think will make this sell off of our country more palatable.  And, by the time most of you figure out you just got sold out and sold off, these same liars will have taken retirement so that they can spend more time with their families.  (Oh! be still my heart!)

What this agreement will effectively accomplish is the eradication of national jurisdiction, national laws and protections and put disputes in the hands of lawyers who also expect to profit from their misdeeds.  It will sell off our land to foreign corporations and governments and firmly establish sovereign foreign territories inside the geographical US. akin to the current Free Trade Zones (257 zones) now operating across the states.

Today’s EPA: A virtual River of Waste

Today’s EPA:  A virtual River of Waste

A recent set of guidelines has been proposed by yet another dysfunctional and totally worthless federal agency, the Environmental Protection agency. (EPA)  Although the proposed guidelines do not have the full force and effect of law, regulatory decisions could still have an impact. (Not only do they not have the full force and effect of law, the only place they can be applied with any authority is in the District of Criminals.)

So here are my thoughts on this: 

If the proposed guidelines do NOT have the full force and effect of law as admitted……create all the regulations you like……but stay out of my state!

The EPA, the agency that has given a pass to gas and oil cartels on everything from the Clean Air Act, The Clean Water Act and virtually any other environmental protections, is now coming after water on private lands.  This is the same agency that expended huge amounts of money collecting cow farts in order to create a system of fee permits (taxes) that could be applied to every cow.  That didn’t quite get off the ground.

This 2009 documentary will give you an idea of the proficiency and clarity with which the EPA operates on a daily basis.  If you can get through this documentary without getting sick,… good for you!  And keep in mind that the EPA was fully aware of the massive and continuing contamination of coastal and inland waterways when all this was taking place.  They refused to act until areas like Chesapeake Bay were rendered virtual dead zones.

Indiana affirms 4th Amendment right to self protection

17 Comments

Marti Oakley           Copyright 2012 All Rights Reserved

________________________________________________________________________

In December of 2011, the Indiana Supreme Court issued a ruling so clearly unconstitutional, and one which was an outright assault on Constitutional protections and rights, that Indiana’s legislature passed a bill to void that ruling.  Governor Mitch Daniels signed the bill in March of 2012.  The new Indiana bill amends the 2006 Castle Doctrine bill.  This doctrine validates the right of citizens to protect themselves using deadly force to stop illegal entry into their homes or cars, allowing them to self-defend even against unlawful acts of law enforcement.

Indiana‘s original “2006 Castle Doctrine” met with overwhelming, bipartisan support, passing 44-5 in the Senate and 81-10 in the House.  The 2012 amendment to the 2006 Castle Doctrine was a result of the opinions issued last year by the Supreme’s in Indiana. The entire state nearly hurled at once behind this decision that included these statements:

“In sum, we hold that in Indiana the right to reasonably resist an unlawful police entry into a home is no longer recognized under Indiana law.” Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steven David said,

We believe however that a right to resist an unlawful police entry into a home is against public policy and is incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence.”

Does it make you wonder if this justice realized that he was acknowledging the unlawful (criminal) activity of law enforcement when he stated that the citizens no longer could defend themselves from these unlawful activities?

Indiana’s state government responded by amending the 2006 Castle Doctrine, reaffirming the right of citizens to self-defense to include specifically when law enforcement is acting unlawfully and is threatening bodily harm, or unlawful trespass under color of law, or no law at all.

From: Second Regular Session 117th General Assembly (2012)

           SENATE ENROLLED ACT No. 1

AN ACT to amend the Indiana Code concerning criminal law and procedure.

(b) As used in this section, “public servant” means a person described in IC 35-41-1-17, IC 35-31.5-2-129, or IC 35-31.5-2-185.
(c) A person is justified in using reasonable force against another any other person to protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force.

BLM RACES TO CLOSE PUBLIC ROADS & LANDS

24 Comments

Debbie Coffey      Copyright 2012    All Rights Reserved.

__________________________________________________________

About every 15-20 years, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rewrites a Resource Management Plan for areas that include not only rural areas, but big cities like Los Angeles.

Then, for the next 15-20 years, every proposed project, plan and Environmental Assessment is based on this Resource Management Plan (RMP).

HOW BLM CLOSES PUBLIC ROADS

With these RMPs, the BLM (along with the Forest Service) has ramped up limiting & closing off public access to public roads and lands. In RMPs (Route of Travel Designations), the BLM designates public roads as “open,” “limited use” or “closed” to Off-Highway Vehicles (OHVs). This can include 4 wheel drive pickup trucks, not just All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) and dirt bikes. Public lands can also be designated as “open,” “limited” or “closed.” Designations can change from “limited” to “closed.”

Supposedly, BLM and the USDA’s Forest Service are closing and limiting use of public roads and public lands to protect the resources of public lands. But, it’s important to consider the EXTENT to which they’re doing this. It goes far beyond protecting habitat.

For instance, at the Tavaputs Plateau in Utah, the BLM has been trying to close roads that lead to some of the most popular routes and scenic vistas in that county. It’s also the area where Bill Barrett Corp. is conducting a massive natural gas field development The BLM intends to close the roads for 30 years.

If these road closures are really about protecting habitat, then how can BLM possibly justify how your 4 wheel drive truck could cause more harm to the environment than a massive extraction project that has about 488 well pads (with 20 well pads in Wilderness Study Areas and 218 well pads in areas with Wilderness Characteristics), 164 miles of new roads, 3,390 acres of initial disturbance (before reclamation) and 1,705 acres of long term disturbance?

It seems that BLM, Forest Service and Congressional concern for protecting the environment is selective. While you’re being shut out, other “uses” (that are more likely to cause harm to the environment) are allowed to take shortcuts.

THE BIG CHANGE IN RMPs

RMPs used to be about 160 pages or less. Now, the new RMPs can be over a thousand pages (with an additional CD of Route of Travel Inventory Maps). The old RMPs had straightforward topics in the table of contents like land use allocations, livestock grazing, land tenure adjustments, oil and gas lease stipulations, and areas of critical environmental concern.

Rural California Sheriffs face magnitude of issues

By Liz Bowen

Red Bluff, CA. – In an unprecedented event, a panel of 10 county sheriffs will address Northern California issues on June 23rd at the Tehama County fairgrounds. Time is 1:30 p.m. Public safety is the number one concern shared by all of these Northern California sheriffs, according to Tehama County Sheriff Dave Hencratt, who is hosting this Support Rural America Sheriffs’ Event. With continuing cuts in county and state budgets, sheriffs are finding their resources diminished. Yet, county sheriffs are charged with the safety and health of the people. It is an expanding dilemma.

These sheriffs are committed to the “oath of office” they took to protect their citizens and will stand on the Constitution to address troubles head-on.

This is the fourth Sheriffs’ Event held this year following other Northern California counties of Siskiyou, Modoc and Trinity; and participation by county sheriffs is growing.

Sheriff Hencratt said the gatherings, which feature a panel of county sheriffs, are basically Town Hall meetings. “It is a chance to talk about our issues,” said Sheriff Hencratt, who adds that these sheriffs truly have a “handle” on a variety of concerns and situations affecting their counties.

“We’ve got your back,” Hencratt stated. “We are here to be reasonable and do what is right.”

A rural tax base that once existed from timber, mining and agriculture are either non-existent or threatened. Over-regulations by some environmental government agencies are affecting businesses and rural society as a whole.

Sheriff Hencratt explained there are four National Forests in Tehama County. He claims, under federal law, his county government should have equal say regarding policies and regulations over those lands managed by U.S. Forest Service.

“Road closures in the National Forest will hamper our law enforcement functions,” he said, adding that a Coordination Committee is working through the process of engaging with the federal agency. The goal is to affect federal regulations and re-open roads that citizens utilize for multiple purposes, including recreation and the ability to fight forest fires.

Sheriff Hencratt is pleased so many California sheriffs are participating on June 23rd. They include: Siskiyou Co. Jon Lopey, Del Norte Co. Dean Wilson, Plumas Co. Greg Hagwood, Trinity Co. Bruce Haney, Modoc Co. Mike Poindexter, Mendocino Co. Tom Allman, Glenn Co. Larry Jones, Humboldt Co. Mike Downey and Shasta Co. Tom Bosenko.

“Every time I listen to these other sheriffs, I learn something. I am like a sponge,” said Hencratt. “And it is gratifying there are so many citizens interested in hearing from us.”

The last three events have boasted 200 to 300 attendees, who are also excited to participate and ask questions. These citizens are hungry to hear from the local officials responding to local issues.

The next event will be hosted by Sheriff Dean Wilson in Del Norte County at the fairgrounds in Crescent City on July 14 at 2 p.m.

Support Rural America Sheriffs’ Events are free. A donation bucket is passed to pay for the rental of the building and basic costs. The Tehama Event will be held in a huge air-conditioned auditorium with seating available for over 1,000. Sheriff Hencratt hopes every seat will be filled. Tehama County Patriots are sponsoring the Event.

Vendors and groups with information to share are invited to participate by renting a 10-foot space for $20. If you need a table, there is an additional $10 charge. Call Patsy Molher at 530-527-6915; Erin Ryan at 530-515-7135; or Liz Bowen 530-467-3515 to reserve your space.

THE TIME IS RIPE TO SPEAK FOR OUR BURROS

_________________________________

The Interior Board of Land Appeals (IBLA) complaint decision has not been given by the judge yet but the “stay” has been denied and BLM will start capturing about 350 wild burros from the Cibalo-Trigo HMA (south-western Arizona) on MONDAY, June 4th.

According to a recent article by videographer Carl Mrozek and based on his personal observations of the burros, there were no foals to be seen and only jacks (male burros) to be found in this area.

Link to Carl Mrozek video of burros – believe near Cibalo-Trigo area of AZ 2010 capture.

Please read the information below about the Wild Ass (burro, donkey) which is listed as an endangered species “where found” and then contact the BLM and request they refrain from capturing these burros until the IBLA judge has digested the scientific data and made a legal decision.

BLM contact information:

Colorado River District
Roxie Trost, District Manager
Yuma Field Office
John MacDonald, Field Manager
2555 East Gila Ridge Road
Yuma, AZ 85365
Phone: 928-317-3200
Fax 928-317-3250

And Contact the :

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR
OFFICE OF HEARINGS AND APPEALS
Interior Board of Land Appeals
801 North Quincy Street, Suite 300

Arlington, Virginia 22203

And refer to IBLA 2012-143

And POLITELY ask the judge to take a hard look at the two scientific documents (#1 and #2 in this article) before making his/her decision on this very important issue.

Below are three pieces of legal documentation.  The first two are scientific and the third was written by the acting director of the Fish and Wildlife Service in 1977 as a “notice” which was obvously a politically driven decision and not science. Although the first two scientific documents state that the wild burro is on the endangered species list, it is the notice (#3) that the BLM is using to persuade the IBLA judge that the wild burros are not included in the endangered species listing.

The notice (#3 below) was written by F. Eugene Hester who, in a seperate document/speech had this comment, “Political influences will shape our future responsibilities and alter our priorities” This statement and attitude explains that his decision was based on “political influences” and not science as the first two documents are. [Ref. Eastern Wildlife Damage Control Conference, 9-22-1985, F. Eugene Hester, U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service]

The Honorable U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell stated in her 23-page opinion that the agency [BLM] “may not simply remain studiously ignorant of material scientific evidence …” and yet we see numerous examples that the BLM decisions are not science based. More

Ron Paul’s ‘Restore America Plan’ Smashes Federal Tyranny

Ron Paul’s Restore America Plan is a 12-page budget that cuts $1 trillion in spending the first year and balances the budget by the 3rd year.  Paul proposes eliminating 5 federal executive agencies that include the following departments: Commerce, Education, Energy, Housing and Urban Development and the Interior. The video below explains why it would be a tremendous benefit to get rid of the Department of Interior.

The Department of the Interior has over 70,000 employees and receives more than $12 billion in taxpayer funds.


Federally Owned Land

The Department of the Interior (DOI) is unconstitutional because control over land, water, resources and wildlife are not mentioned as an enumerated power in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution.  Additionally, the federal government’s ownership of nearly 30% of US land, primarily in the Western states, is an affront to the Equal Footing Doctrine.

When the federal government exerts power that is not specifically given to the feds in the Constitution, it is a violation of the Tenth Amendment and states’ rights.

The Department of the Interior (DOI) has closed enormous swaths of land to development, resulting in economic devastation because most wealth is created from land.  Under Paul’s plan, the States would regain control over their land.

Here are a few examples of how the DOI has abused its power over federal land: More

Dr. Paul Houser Ph.D.  http://prhouser.com/houser/

On May 7, 2012, renowned scientist, Paul R. Houser, Ph.D. spoke to 300 Siskiyou County citizens and explained why he filed a serious “whistleblower” complaint with the federal Office of Special Council after being “fired” by the federal Dept. of Interior.

What were the federal officials’ issues with Dr. Houser?

He questioned the PROCESS that was used to promote destruction of four hydro-electric dams on the Klamath River AND cited flawed science and politically-based conclusions regarding salmon restoration in the Klamath Basin.

In this video, Siskiyou Co. Sheriff Jon Lopey introduces Dr. Paul R. Houser to a crowd in Yreka, CA.

Before being fired, Dr. Houser was the top scientist in the federal government charged with “integrity review” of science projects within the Dept. of Interior.
