TransCanada Keystone Pipeline Spill #21

1 Comment

Marti —

In case you missed it — TransCanada’s original Keystone pipeline spilled at least 380,000 gallons of tarsands and toxic diluents into wetlands in North Dakota on Oct. 30.

The spill — the twenty-first (21) spill on the Keystone pipeline since 2010 — led U.S. pipeline regulator PHMSA to order TransCanada to shut down the pipeline again via Corrective Action Order — the fourth such order issued to shut Keystone down since 2010 because “continued operation before corrective action would be hazardous to life, property, or the environment.”

Make sure to add your voice and tell the U.S. State Dept. that TransCanada’s safety record is an unacceptable risk to our land, water and climate, and the Keystone XL pipeline should be rejected as not in the U.S. national interest.

Submit a NoKXL comment to the U.S. State Dept. review of Keystone XL. More

A Foreign Corporation Claiming Eminent Domain?

7 Comments

Marti —

You may have already heard, but TransCanada just filed new eminent domain claims in court against 90 Nebraska family farmers and ranchers — including my family — who refuse to give up our land for this foreign corporation’s Keystone XL tarsands export pipeline. [1]

TransCanada has been bullying my family and other Nebraska landowners for the past ten years, seeking land that’s been in our families for generations for a pipeline that threatens our farms, our water, and our climate. Now this foreign corporation has filed a lawsuit against my family, and dozens of other farming and ranching families, and intends to abuse eminent domain to take our land for KXL against our wishes.

We have less than a month from today to respond in court, and oppose TransCanada’s eminent domain lawsuits. We need your support in this moment more than ever before.

Give $25 or what you can to support landowners fighting TransCanada’s new eminent domain lawsuits to push KXL through our farms and ranches.

TransCanada is attempting to make some waves and put up a smokescreen to make investors think KXL is a “green-light,” when there remain serious obstacles in this pipeline’s path. The company has said it plans to engage in “pre-construction” activities along the proposed route for KXL, like clearing trees.

Landowners like my family have stood together for ten years, and we intend to fight these new eminent domain lawsuits. Bold supporters like you have also stood with the landowners during this decade-long fight, and we thank you.

Donate to Nebraska landowners’ legal defense against TransCanada’s eminent domain lawsuits for Keystone XL.

Thank you for continuing to stand with us.

Jeanne Crumly, Nebraska landowner in Holt County

Join Lawrence Lucas as he hosts Waymon hInson , a long time activist in the battle Black farmers have faced under the mismanagement of the USDA. Mr.  hInson also hosts the “Let Justice Ring” blog, linked below. Joining Lawrence and Mr Henson, will be photographer and documentary maker will be Shoun A. Hill.

Waymon hInson has earned degrees in theology and psychology is licensed as a psychologist and marriage and family therapist in Texas. His history with the Black farmer cause extends back to 1994 when he began to consult with farmers and their legal counsel. He has been affiliated with the Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Association in Tillery, NC since 2005 and currently is a board member. He has two published articles in the area of Black farmers and land loss and has presented at international, national, state, and regional conferences on racism, the USDA, and Black land loss. His special area of interest is the impact on the health and well being of farmers and families when dealing with the USDA and DOJ. He and Shoun Hill partnered on the Black farmer documentary beginning in 2018 and will complete it in late 2019.

Bio-Shoun A. Hill

Shoun Hill is a photographer based in New York City. Originally from Frederick, MD., Hill began photographing professionally in 1993 for The Gleaner in Henderson, KY., after getting his Master of Arts degree from Ohio University.

He has worked as a staff photographer for newspapers in Memphis, Tenn., and Orlando, Fla. At the present time he is a photo editor on the National Desk of the Associated Press in NYC. While a staff photographer, Shoun photographed Super Bowls, NBA basketball games, and presidential elections. He has also been a part of gallery shows in Ohio, Florida, Illinois and New York.

At the present time, Shoun is filming a documentary on African-American farmers, which debuts in Nov. After the completion on the documentary, Shoun will start a still photo project on the past, present and future of the African-American farmer. Shown is married to Debra Walton-Hill, a Broadway and TV actress and performer.

“I’m a documentary photographer and my goal with every image is to make a connection between the subject in the photograph and the person looking at the photograph. I shoot what is, and let the image speak for itself. People are my ideas and inspiration. That’s what these photographs show.

When people look at my work, I want them to feel a connection. Maybe the subject reminds them of someone or a situation they were in. When they see my work I’d like them to get a feeling of remembrance.”

Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals.

22 Comments

 

Tom DeWeese, recognized expert on private property rights, has released a new book entitled Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals. DeWeese’s book describes in detail the process being used at every level of government to reorganize our society through the destruction of private property.

According to DeWeese, the American system of free enterprise, private property ownership and individual liberty is under attack by a political force that, while plainly out in the open for all to see, is little understood and mostly ignored. Yet private non-governmental organizations (NGOs), city planners and federal agencies have teamed up specifically to change human society under the banner of Sustainable Development. It is gaining power in every state, county, and community under the false threat of Environmental Armageddon, demanding that we completely reorganize our economic system, our representative form of government, and our individual lifestyle.

While termed in positive sounding lingo, in reality Sustainable policy imposes massive government regulations enforced through state and local governments. These policies place severe restrictions on energy and water use. Development schemes seek to ban the use of cars, instead forcing ridership on massively expensive and inconvenient public transportation systems. Meanwhile, so-called “Visioning” programs follow enforcement of international policies to reorganize communities into a one-size-fits-all straightjacket.

In Sustainable, author Tom DeWeese clearly makes the case that such policies are a war on free enterprise, private property ownership, and individual choice.

An Open Letter to Minnesota AG:LPS/Black Knight consent judgement and to demand answers why LPS is not in compliance with the judgement

2 Comments

Editor’s note:  In reference to the letter below

Black Knight Financial Services is an American corporation that provides integrated technology, services, data and analytics solutions to the mortgage and real estate industries. On January 3, 2014, Fidelity National Financial acquired Lender Processing Services “LPS”, renaming it Black Knight. Wikipedia

11/30/17

MN Attorney General Lori Swanson

445 Minnesota Street
Suite 1400
St. Paul, MN 55101-2131

Hello:

Under the Minnesota Data Practices Act § 13.01 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records in order to obtain information about the LPS/Black Knight consent judgement and to demand answers why LPS is not in compliance with the judgement.

As you know, LPS/Black Knight was ordered to remediate forgeries and assignments and to notify people affected by the robo-signing of documents.  There is no indication this has been done.  There are approximately 2 million fraudulent documents in the public record that don’t appear to have been remediated by LPS.  Although LPS was to issue corrective assignments- there is no proof this was done.

If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $_20.00. However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of the MN Attorney General’s public support in combating the still prevalent overabundance of mortgage servicing, foreclosure and securitization fraud. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.

I am looking specifically for these answers:

  1. Has your office been receiving quarterly compliance reports as required in the consent judgement?
  2. How many people in the state were impacted by LPS’s illegal practices to include fabricated notes and assignments, forged documents or unreliable documents created for the purpose of foreclosing?
  3. What percentage of the funds the state received from the consent judgement have been used to help citizens of the state? Please provide a distribution report of the allocation of these funds.
  4. Will future homebuyers be vulnerable if they discover their title is clouded by a prior fraudulent note, assignment, endorsement or allonge that was not remediated? Plans to remediate? How?
  5. How did the individual servicers comply with the consent judgement? What were their duties to comply?
  6. If you accepted money from the settlement, why was no follow-up done on the consent judgement to confirm that servicers and their attorneys were in compliance?
  7. Why are these fabricated documents still polluting the public records of this state?
  8. I hereby request copies of all quarterly reports and correspondence.

I would request a prompt response to this request.  If you expect a significant delay in responding to or in fulfilling this request, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.

If you deny any or all of this request, please site each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

Tom Kibler

FAKE NEWS OR UNREPORTED STORIES: WHICH IS THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS?

3 Comments

  Author,
Chuck Frank
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let’s set the record straight for a change.  Yes, it’s true, fake news is happening in America but it has actually been around for years.  And let’s not forget most news is only reported not actually investigated.  There is a huge difference.  Investigative journalism takes a back seat to mainstream news, however, investigative journalism is so very different than the mainstream media(MSM), which generally seeks to find truth without bias through credible means and sources.  Through greater investigation, lackluster news stories or under the radar agendas may be exposed while the public will then benefit by clearly seeing events as they unfold  through a more credible lens.

Taking the news question a lot further, the masses through the years have truly been fooled by the MSM which, on a regular basis, stands guilty of being responsible for something else other  than fake news and that is “unreported news”, which limits the readers ability to analyze stories for credibility and content.  But why has this happened?  It is because the news today is far more packaged secretly, and differently than it was in previous years, while there is collusion between these news organizations, political parties, corporate elite’s and government.  Transparency in today’s world has given way to news executives who either hide or also withhold the news to benefit their own relationship with sponsors, world players and the
government.

Protesters’ Peaceful Battle for Clean Water, Sacred Lands Met with Brute Force

6 Comments

American Free Press

45_46_ss_indian_protesters-300x231Demonstrators from across the country have joined with American Indians in North Dakota to protest a private oil firm that plans to run an oil pipeline underneath the Missouri river, the only source of clean drinking water for thousands of people in the area. The pipeline is planned to transport about 470,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

By Ronald Ray

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of the Dakota and Lakota Nations of American Indians has been seeking peacefully to block further construction of the 1,172-mile-long Dakota Access oil pipeline, which threatens the tribe’s water supply and sacred spaces. The tribe, recognized by the U.S. as a sovereign nation by treaty, thus has earned the wrath of Big Oil plutocrats and, consequently, law enforcement authorities.

In a separate article in this issue we recount the jury acquittal of seven defenders of private property rights, who earlier this year occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, including sons of rancher Cliven Bundy. But unlike that peaceful protest, as well as the famous defense of the Bundy ranch in Nevada two years ago, the Indians have chosen to remain unarmed, despite sometimes facing vicious brutality by police and private security firms, which has included siccing biting attack dogs on protestors, arrests of reporters, and strip searches of arrestees.

The effort to protect the Missouri River—the Standing Rock Sioux’s primary water source—and sacred burial grounds now includes the participation of more than 300 native tribes and thousands of “water protectors” occupying federal land near the pipeline’s route south of Bismarck, N.D.

DNR – State Receives Permit to Mine Application and Financial Assurance Proposals from PolyMet

PolyMet has submitted a permit to mine application for its proposed NorthMet project. This is the first nonferrous permit to mine application in the State’s history. This application includes PolyMet’s proposals for financial assurance and the wetland replacement plan. DNR will now start the application review process. This review process will include extensive evaluation of environmental and financial considerations. The application will likely be modified in response to DNR’s review.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

The DNR review of the permit to mine application will take many months. The application will be reviewed by a team of DNR technical experts, additional state agencies, local governments, and DNR’s independent expert contractors. The review process looks closely at details of the proposed project to determine whether it is designed to meet state standards, provides appropriate financial assurance, and has incorporated the environmental protections outlined in the Environmental Impact Statement. After DNR completes review of the application and associated documents, DNR will consider which draft permit conditions, if any, should be developed.

PUBLIC COMMENT AND REVIEW PERIOD

If DNR determines that the application, with draft agency conditions, meets all applicable state laws, then DNR will place the draft documents on public notice for review and comment.  DNR will publish additional detail about the public comment process at a later date, including the date and location of any future public informational meetings.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND RESOURCES

After the public notice and comment period, DNR will determine whether to hold a pre-decisional contested case hearing. DNR’s decision on whether to hold a pre-decisional contested case hearing decision will be made before the DNR makes a final decision on the permit to mine application.

Permit to mine application requirements can be found in Minnesota Rule 6132.

PolyMet’s permit to mine application, including its financial assurance proposals and the wetland replacement plan will be available by 5:00 p.m. today at: www.mn.gov/polymet (click on the DNR link).

As “we the people” entered into the year 2016 and beyond, were they aware of the plague that was consuming our country? It came at first as a black cloud creeping along the city streets and then entered through the crevices of our windows and doors and finally made its way into the very rooms of our houses. It began to sedate the masses into a near slumber but then retreated and continued following a path to higher ground. I followed the cloud as it rose above the hills and then began to touch the waters, the lakes and the rivers. It continued then to the higher elevations and to the utmost parts of the wilderness areas. There, the cloud stayed for a very long time over the vast Sierra Nevada Mountains until a mighty wind began to take it eastward.

Now, I was on a quest to find out a lot more about this strange phenomenon. Besides the cloud, there were other factors responsible for another findings that began to surface in my investigation.  A trail of total devastation had found its way to the deepest parts of the sea to where 1/3 of all living things had died. While this fact had been covered up by government and the mainstream news, another gigantic black cloud spread out for hundreds of miles and continued to engulf hundreds of cities, thousands of factories and countless places of business which were all then forced to close. As the plague reached the Central Valley, the massive network of waterways from the Sacramento Delta down to Bakersfield, began to trickle away and then thousands of orchard trees began to die. The devastation was overwhelming but then I made another observation.

A Bad Day for Municipality-Bureaucratic Overreach

Leave a comment

new-logo25Chuck Frank
lightofthenaation.us

________________________________________________

Just in case there are a number of property rights advocates out there who are farmers, ranchers, and others who own private property, there is light at the end of the tunnel for you because of a recent landmark Supreme Court case which favored private property owners. (Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 1447.)

In the ruling which was argued by the Pacific Legal Foundation(PLF), Sacramento, on behalf of Coy Koontz, governments, may owe compensation to property owners who are denied permits to develop their land. In effect, the ruling was a very serious blow to local governments and their vast municipality-bureaucratic overreach. In this case, the St. Johns River Water Dept. was stripped of its sainthood…demoted. It was a bad day.

An agencies requirements to pay fees or other payments as a condition of permit approvals will now be subject to heightened scrutiny. The decision becomes a revolutionary change in the law.

In the 18 year old battle, Florida declared much of the Koontz 15 acre parcel as protected wetlands and this became the basis of a “takings” claim which is a term used when government either denies a person the use of their land or requires them to give up some of their land, or else pay money to protect wetlands elsewhere which was in the case of Koontz.

Well, it didn’t fly and the extortionate demands were thrown a curve. Paul Beard, principal attorney with the PLF, who argued Koontz’s appeal, said the decision “raises the bar for governments to extract money from owners of land, homes or businesses, even if it may be to serve the public good.” Paul Beard went on to say, “This case reaffirms the principle that government must show a connection between what it asks for and what the property owner wants to do. Governments don’t have Carte Blanche any more to say, ‘Give us $100,000 and we’ll give you a permit.’

In summary, municipal empires have regularly used encroaching environmentalism and administrative law to bully their way into property rights disputes. A planning hierarchy such as St. Johns River has now been shown to be an unjust government entity which far exceeded its bounds. The U. S. Supreme Court ruling is a victory for those advocates of private property rights.

The Media Adores Ranchers. Here’s Why They Shouldn’t. [Part I]

7 Comments

SOURCE:  The Daily Pitchfork

by Vickery Eckhoff

rancher-1a-620x264

The US livestock industry has enormous economic and political clout. But news reports consistently highlight a small segment of it — ranchers grazing livestock on federally-managed western grasslands — as news sources, granting them undue influence on policy issues in which they have a large economic stake.

This bias has occurred despite a decade’s worth of empirical evidence showing that public-lands ranchers — who rely on hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies but represent only 2.7 percent of the nation’s total livestock operators — fleece US taxpayers, public lands and protected species in order to graze livestock (mostly cattle) on the cheap.

The media bias seems endemic. Whether discussing wild horses, bison, predator species (wolves, coyote, cougars and bears), sage grouse or desert tortoises, livestock operators and lawmakers from western states are consistently allowed to present themselves in news reports as stewards of 230 million acres of grasslands, forest and wildlife habitat that nearly everyone agrees have been compromised.

The BLM’s Whitewash of the Reveille Wild Horse Roundup

10 Comments

____________________________________________________

Don’t forget that the BLM is managing the wild horses and burros to extinction.

Don’t forget the BLM is doing little to reduce or suspend livestock grazing on public lands.

____________________________________________________

The BLM’s Tonopah Field Office in Nevada claimed there were 168 wild horses in the Reveille Herd Management Area, and there was a “need” to do a roundup (and waste taxpayer dollars) since there were 30 wild horses over the Appropriate Management Level (AML).

But lets look closely at this slight of hand.

The BLM rounded up 120 wild horses, gave PZP fertility control to 50, which they were to return, but by removing 70, left only 98 wild horses on the Reveille HMA, making it a non viable herd.  (And, they gave PZP to 50 out of that 98!)

Now, lets look at the numbers of LIVESTOCK on the Reveille HMA: More

How the EPA separates landowners from their properties

new-logo25W. R. McAfee

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
On April 7, 2001, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation ignored state and federal law in the name of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and stopped water to more than 200,000 acres and some 1,400 canal-irrigated family farms near Klamath Falls, Oregon, plunging the community toward bankruptcy and devastating families.
Why? Because the bureau said two species of bottom-feeding suckerfish and a Coho salmon, in a reservoir the farmers depended upon might be “affected” if water was released during the current drought.

35600_1thmThe ESA had already been used to cut off water to a group of California farmers, causing their crops to dry up.
In Colorado, the forest service threatened another agricultural operation with a by-pass flow that would have resulted in an 80-percent loss of the dry-year water supply from a key reservoir, with a direct economic loss of between $5 and $17 million.
They also attempted to impose a “by-pass flow” that would have taken some 50 percent of the dry-year water supply provided from a Colorado municipal water storage facility.

In Idaho, a federal permittee was told he would have to bypass water to protect aquatic species or obtain an alternate source of water at a cost of $120,000.
In Arizona, where state law requires water rights be held by the person making the beneficial use of the water, the regional forester had demanded that water rights owned by grazing permittees be transferred to the feds – rights long established under state law for livestock purposes.

Federal agencies—at the direction of the EPA—are using the ESA nationwide to try and override established water rights, state laws, and the McCarran Act.
Under the Water Rights Act of 1952 (McCarran Amendment) it’s illegal for anyone – federal agency or citizen, without exception – to force water bypasses or withhold water along natural flowing streams, rivers, and their tributaries. More

Ninja Turtles Used To Evict Nevada Ranchers

“Bundy’s situation was analyzed “legally” and politically for propaganda value before orders were given to the BLM to set this giganticus raticus fornicus in motion. Long-term, there’s mind prep unfolding here similar to the staged city lock-down in Boston and Sandy Hoax.

The BLM was handed a plan.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rancher Cliven Bundy maintains Nevada, not the feds, owns the land where his cattle graze. Regardless of a lower federal court’s ruling against him ( and against this Nevada rancher, the BLM raid on his ranch and the killing of his cattle isn’t about fees—it’s about using turtles to put him out of business.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA)” are blackjacks—along with the fed’s bait and switch “conservation easements” scam —that are used in tandem by government to either drive ranchers, farmers, and private property owners off their land, or to take control of their land with “model” conservation easements that leave government in charge of what they can or cannot do on a piece of property that might have been in their family for a century; driving its value through the floor in the process.

The feds have also attempted to add the Clean Water Act to their bag of unconstitutional thefts in the past, but the Supreme Court ruled against them twice. The first time in a 5-4 decision against the Corps of Engineers who, citing the Clean Water Act and the EPA’s Migratory Bird Rule as their authority, tried to stop a consortium of Chicago municipalities from using an abandoned sand and gravel pit for a solid waste disposal site by invoking the Commerce Clause that would have given the feds authority over such water; arguing that migratory birds needed the gravel pit water, and that protection of migratory birds was “…a national interest of very nearly the first magnitude…and millions of people spend over a billion dollars annually on recreational pursuits relating to migratory birds.”

The Court didn’t buy it, saying: “…we find nothing approaching a clear statement from Congress it intended the (sic, Clean Water Act) to reach an abandoned sand and gravel pit…to claim federal jurisdiction over ponds and mud flats falling within the “Migratory Bird Rule” would result in significant impingement of the state’s traditional and primary power over land and water use.”

In Rapanos v. United States , John A. Rapanos backfilled a portion of his 54 acres in Michigan prior to development. The nearest body of navigable water was 11 to 20 miles away. Government regulators informed Mr. Rapanos that his “. . .saturated fields were waters of the United States that could not be filled without a permit.”

A note from Rosa Koire (author of “Behind the Green Mask”):

On October 30, at 8:30 p.m. (Eastern Time), “For The Record,” a 60-Minutes-style news program on Blaze TV, will air “The Agenda” a documentary on UN Agenda 21 and regional planning.  This excellent, well-produced program examines the impacts of Smart Growth and regional over-reach on the San Francisco Bay Area, Detroit, and Portland.  I was pleased to be featured in the show and hope that you’ll be able to watch and share it with your fellow activists and friends.

To watch for free, click here.

We are fighting to stop the worst regional plan in the United States here in the San Francisco Bay Area–its impacts will be felt all across the nation.  We believe it will be the template for the rest of the country and have launched a legal challenge to stop it.  Will you help us defeat this UN Agenda 21 plan by making a donation to the legal fund?

Thank you for your commitment to exposing and fighting UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development.  Awareness is the first step in the Resistance.

Thank you,
Rosa

Solutions for attacks on property rights Event

 

SISKIYOU COUNTY – Ranchers, property owners and Constitutional groups from four Western states will meet at the top of California to discuss solutions to protect private property rights; and open roads in USFS managed lands.

Siskiyou County, California, and neighboring Klamath County, in Oregon, feel plenty of heat as fights over water, wolves and closed Forest Service roads slam in waves one-after-the-other.

Much of rural America feels the heavy-hand of demands from government agencies, Tribes and Enviro NGOs. Yes, ranchers along this Klamath River area are surrounded by over-regulations and greed.

Recently, the Klamath Tribe exercised its priority Water Right in Oregon and shut-off the water to 115,000 acres of pasture and hay ranches affecting over 80,000 head of cattle. And ranchers, along with home owners in Siskiyou County, are fighting a lawsuit to save their Water Right from the Karuk Tribe and NGO Klamath River Keepers.

But in this stifling mud and muck, solutions have been found. They just need to be learned and applied, according to three ranchers that will be speaking July 20-21 at the Liberty and Property Rights Coalition Events in Siskiyou County. Admission is free.

“This is the caper,” said Ramona Hage Morrison, whose family has fought one of the longest battles in the West to protect their Water and Grazing Rights in Nevada.

“They have hood-winked the property owners. Most don’t understand their property rights, but we can fix that,” smiles Hage-Morrison.

Yes, in the face of constant threats, Hage-Morrison is upbeat. Her family has won major “rights” issues in federal court over the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management. She will be sharing the line of defense that worked in Hage “takings” case and their “forage right” case.

The Liberty and Property Rights Coalition Event will be held at the Yreka Community Theater, at 812 North Oregon Street in Yreka — at the north end of town. Take the third off-ramp from I-5 exit 775. Time is 1 to 4 p.m. on Sat. July 20th. Several motels are in close proximity of the Event.

Then on Sun. July 21st, Butte Valley Protect our Property is hosting the Event at the Dorris Community Center, again at the north end of town on Highway 97.  Time is 2 to 5 p.m.

“This is a celebration,” said organizer Debbie Bacigalupi, “and we are going to learn from those who have won. We are energized as this historical meeting brings property owners from four states into one Event.”

Arizona Rancher Danny Martinez worked with the Hage’s on their lawsuits and used what he learned to defend his ranch from the federal agencies. Martinez will share the remedies he has found. Bring your notebook.

Then Casey Anderson, a rancher from Idaho, will have a slide show on the federal mismanagement of wolves.

Michael Shaw, who just won a significant lawsuit over his property rights against Alameda County, will be serving as Master of Ceremonies for both meetings.

“These meetings have predetermined outcomes . . Public comment is NOT considered.  These unelected boards have been “selected” by mayors, city councils and county boards and are not ELECTED by the people. .”

StopTheCrime.net

“San Francisco” and Neighboring Cities Soon To Be Called ONE BAY AREA . . . . The Full YouTube of the ABAG meeting on June 20, 2013 . . .
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~

What you are about to witness is the continued assault of the U.N. Agenda 21 aka Future Earth agenda to consume local cities and create Mega Regions.  You will watch the incremental demise of America through land theft and denial of any public representation. . The end goal is to create TEN Mega Regions called the United States.  These mega regions are already designated and it’s only a matter of constructing them which is being done through this ONE  BAY AREA PLAN.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is important to learn what this looks like because this plan is creeping across the country. .

This is in accordance to the dictates of the Global bankers. . .to eliminate nation states and dissolve cities into mega regions to ultimately create a One World Order. . .controlled by the bankers . . Scroll into the YouTube to 1:42:40 and listen to Lou Tavares then immediately following Lou you will hear Deborah Tavares with StopTheCrime.net . .  then again at 3:30:23 . . .
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Read the Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars policy on www.StopTheCrime.net Source Doc Tab . . . and familiarize yourself with the Wildland Project – Bio Diversity Treaty that is in full implementation, right now.  This project is creating corridors that will limit and prevent human access and is disguised and being stealthily implemented across the country by way of park closures, road closures that are prohibiting vehicle access, restricted use of off road vehicles, requiring passes into hunting and camping areas, and the creation of penalties, fines and regulations.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The agencies involved are corporations under the mother corporation, USA, Inc.  The U.S. Forestry, Fish and Game, the EPA, many of the non-profits are subverting property rights and in collusion with UN Agenda policies.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Once you understand the Wildlands Project you will see the connections of the One Bay Area Plan and the creation of PDA’s (Priority Development Areas) which regulate land usage outside the PDA’s.  While this may sound unreal this is REAL.  The PDA’s create human settlement reservations while restrictions are placed upon land outside the reservations – PDA’s.  This is THE PLAN, restriction of human access outside of the reservations.  Look at the Wildlands Map on www.StopTheCrime.net . . .
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These meetings have predetermined outcomes . . Public comment is NOT considered.  These unelected boards have been “selected” by mayors, city councils and county boards and are not ELECTED by the people. .
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This unelected board is determining massive city zoning changes that will impact existing housing, change property use, impact rural property not only by reducing property values but by restricting development rights (additions ,etc).  The rural properties outside of the priority development zones will not receive adequate monies for road maintenance services. . .this unelected board is concentrating future population centers near highways that have been shown to cause increased illnesses from the pollution. . . further these boards are signing contracts for grant funds that are obligating the cities i.e. YOU to repay . .  More

The One Bay Area PCA meeting was filmed. If you have been in the fight against regionalism you should watch this video. The Williamson Act is being phased out so that conservation easements and multi-level unaccountable bureaucracies can take over land rights.

Watch a small group of citizens ask the tough questions!

The One Bay Area plan has two components;

  1. PDAs (Priority Development Areas) and,
  2. PCAs (Priority Conservation Areas).

The PDAs are the areas within the existing Urban Growth Boundaries where they will be building Stack and Pack housing. All other areas will be targeted for conservation!

Priority Conservation Area (PCA) Meeting, Oakland, Ca, 5/23/2013

The PCAs are the first areas that will be targeted. This meeting was filled with stakeholders, public agencies planners, land trusts, etc. All waiting to make deals.

MTC will be working with the SCC (State Coastal Conservancy) to dole out $10 million of our Tax Payer Transportation funds to UN-elected, UN-accountable groups (like Greenbelt Alliance, Sierra Club) etc. These agencies will then go target private property owners into signing conservation easements. The easement holders will be in control of the land. Not the land owner.

The beneficiary of the carbon credit windfall will be the easement holder (land trusts). These easements will have completely different management plans depending on who holds the easement. The end goal is to form the California Essential Habitat Corridor System, which will create a wildlife corridor system throughout California.

CalTrans and DOT are the fed and state agencies that are also involved. The ONLY way MTC is getting away with spending transportation funds on conservation instead of highways is because they are going to find “Conservation” projects that need some type of transportation related infrastructure and then they can divert funds to these projects.

This is NOTHING about conservation. This is about diverting funds from roads to pet projects with special interest groups

OUR DONATION SITE

We need your help on something very important. We’re working on a legal challenge to the huge 9 county 101 city regional plan here in the San Francisco Bay: One Bay Area. This regional plan is different from the others in the US and we believe it’s a prototype for forced implementation of UN Agenda 21’s ‘Islands of Human Habitation’.

Plan Bay Area/One Bay Area includes Priority Development Areas (see attached map) that 31927_1thare targeted to contain 80% of the residential and 66% of the commercial development over the next 25 years. This is extremely important because it is a violation of the 5th and the 14th amendments (takings/due process/just compensation, and equal protection) and will restrict development to less than 4% of the land area in the SF Bay Area. These PDAs are within Urban Growth Boundaries but create new de facto urban growth boundaries because people who own property within the UGBs will not be able to develop unless (presumably) 80% of the population increase has already been accommodated within the PDAs.

The Coming Eminent Domain “Heist”

13 Comments

Dan Peterson, Executive Director info@proprights.com 407-481-2289

Copyright © 2012 Coalition for Property Rights

___________________________________________________________________________

The Coming Eminent Domain “Heist”

The Constitution of the United States gives government the “Power” to take private property “for public use” provided there is “due process of law” and “just compensation.” The most notorious misuse of this power to date is the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Kelo v. City of New London.  But now, certain US cities are promoting a new use of eminent domain that will spell disaster for the housing and financial industries. San Bernardino County and the City of Stockton, California have already crossed over the line of bankruptcy and are in desperate need of revenue. Here’s their plan:

Use eminent-domain powers to buy mortgages where homes are underwater.

Impose losses on lenders.

Write down the principal amounts owed by the borrower.

The results are great for the borrower who gets his loan modified.

The results are great for the financial/investment management company to be selected to operate this scheme because of the fees to be received for each loan modified and their share of the profits realized on behalf of their investors.

The results are great for the municipalities which get a financial piece of the deal.

But, what about the lender of the original loan?

Consider the following scenario as laid out by Jann Swanson in an article entitled, “SIFMA Slams Eminent Domain “Scheme” in Letter to FHFA”: More

Travel IH-10 West from San Antonio and you will eventually pass through Fort Stockton, Texas. Continue on and you will notice grass-covered mountains coming into view on the left side of  IH-10.  These mountains are the Barrilla Mountains. They blend with the Davis Mountains and others that  stretch south of the highway for more than a hundred miles to the Rio Grande;  mountains covered with rich, rocky, volcanic soil that can’t be plowed; mountains good only for ranching—the bigger the better.  Water in theseThunderhead mountains is scarce and deep except for an occasional spring. Ranchers there are totally dependent upon rainfall to produce the protein-rich gramma grasses for which the mountains are known.

Opposite the mountains and to the right of IH-10 west, the land is level and stretches miles north, checker-boarded by farms sitting atop good soil and an aquifer that supplies water for crop  irrigation or sprinklers or cienegas.

Thunderheads bring rain to both sides of this stretch of IH-10.  They form naturally in the west and northwestern sky and move east, raining on rancher and farmer alike. The ranchers watch these thunderheads and hope for rain.  The farmers watch these thunderheads and hope it doesn’t.

The hardest drought ever to hit West Texas began in the 1950s.  Southwest Weather Research, a company that seeded clouds, began to dissipate forming thunderheads to eliminate the possibility of  hail north of IH-10.

Ranchers in the Davis Mountains asked the farmers to not do this. They needed the rain.  Many were teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and one more dry summer would  push some over the edge. They were running out of water and grass and watching livestock die as springs and dirt tanks went dry.

The farmers said no.  Lines were drawn. Thunderheads would form, the cloud seeding planes would arrive, and 20 minutes later the cloud would be dissipated. In desperation, some individual(s)—no one is quite sure who—climbed atop their windmill(s) in the afternoon when the thunderheads formed and seeded them with lead when the  planes arrived.

They never downed any, but seeding pilots began discovering an occasional bullet hole during preflight checks. Protests were lodged with local gendarmes.

“You get a look at who it was ashootin’ at cha?”

“Hell no. I was too busy flying.”

“You sure someone was ashootin’ at cha?”

“Hell yes I’m sure. I got a bullet hole right here in my plane you can stick a finger in.”

“Well, see if you can get a good look at who it is that’s ashootin’  at cha, and where he was ashootin’ at cha from, and we’ll go talk to him. Otherwise, ain’t a whole lot we can do.”

Or words to that effect.

Pilot enthusiasm for seeding clouds above the Davis Mountains faded. More

Property Rights Decisions: Based on Science or Ideology?

2 Comments

The “My Word” column in yesterday’s (July 26, 2012) edition of the Orlando Sentinel brings out an interesting point regarding the use of facts and science in allowing property owners to enjoy and use their land.

The Adena Springs Ranch near Silver Springs, Florida is comprised of nearly 25,000 acres. It is located in northeastern Marion County between Ocala and Ocala National Forest and they plan to grow cattle. Their website says they are committed “to raise and harvest the animals in a way that protects his neighbors and the environment.” For the details on their proposed operations visit: www.adenaspringsranch.com

Part of the permitting process includes applying for a water use permit. Last Sunday, the Sentinel wrote an editorial attempting to create fear that the granting of this permit would be gambling with the environmental purity and water resource of Silver Springs. Click HERE to read the article

The author of the “My Word” column responded by stating this fear is not based on any scientific evidence. None has ever been offered. In fact, the homework done by Ranch owner, Frank Stronach, led them to issue the following statement regarding the permit, “We know that it will not harm environmental or water resources or our neighbors.

Crescent City, CA – Diverse economic problems and challenges face law enforcement, but in Northern California elected county sheriffs are doing something new by holding regional Town Hall-type meetings to communicate with their citizens.

We seek redress of grievances as authorized by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Our grievances  are:
* Our public lands rightfully belong to the Counties of Oregon,
* we deserve, indeed are Constitutionally guaranteed, the same rights and privileges afforded other States, and

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.”

More Pork for “Big Pig”

9 Comments

Debbie Coffey      Copyright 2012 All Rights Reserved.

“The words feral, non-native, and invasive species are now being slung around by government agencies like mud in a pig pen.” 

____________________________________________________________
In what can only be described as a slaughter of private property rights along with the livelihoods of small farmers, the Director of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources declared that pigs with certain physical characteristics that are found on breeding or sporting facilities, are considered “invasive species” and need to be destroyed. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) won’t compensate facilities for their financial losses. If facility owners refuse to comply, the DNR will convict them of a felony.

Mark Baker, a pig farmer in Michigan, owns Bakers Green Acres. He served in the Air Force for 20 years. He has a family. And recently, he has been worried that a SWAT team will show up at his farm to kill all of his pigs and to arrest him as a felon. According to a recent Cadillac.com article, Michigan State Sen. Darwin Booher “estimated close to 2,000 small farm operators could be put out of business as a result of the order.”
Michigan DNR seems to be making up its own definition of “invasive species.”

Senator Booher said DNR’s “…definition of an invasive (swine) species is not clear.” “For example, the order defines the ear structure of an invasive swine as both erect and floppy, depending on if the pig is a hybrid breed or not.”

Not only that, it seems that DNR’s definition is totally different from that of the National Invasive Species Council.

The Invasive Species Advisory Committee for the National Invasive Species Council clearly pointed out thatIt is also essential to recognize that invasive species are not those under human control or domestication, that is, invasive species are not those that humans depend upon for economic security, maintaining a desirable quality of life, or survival.” (The Invasive Species Definition Clarification and Guidance White Paper, April 2006) More

One Bay Area…….California’s adoption of UN Agenda 21 regionalism and the attempts to neutralize County Sheriff’s

25 Comments

___________________________________________________________________________

Labeled as “tin foil” conspiracy theorists, called crazy and lambasted for the inclusion of Tea Party property rights activists and repeatedly told that they were imagining things, California property rights advocates may not be so crazy after all. The continual maligning of opponents who have exposed the ongoing implementation of Agenda 21 sustainability, smart growth, ICLEI,  stack & pack housing, non-human habitat zoning and the effective end to property rights, are and have been right all along.

Conspiracy [theories] are theories only so long as you have no facts, only assumptions. Having facts to back up your suspicions does not lessen the conspiratorial act.  It simply affirms the fact that the conspiracy does exist and this group of activists has that proof.

In the case of the attempts by UN Agenda 21 supporters and promoters who had for years successfully painted anyone who opposed their intentions to surrender portions of California (and the entire US) to UN Agenda 21 stack & pack housing and the ending of rural property rights, these characterizations mentioned above were quite successful.  Those who opposed handing any portion of the state over to UN controlled regionalism were [tin foil hat conspiracy theorists].  They were simply right-wing extremists, violent liberals (depending on which side of the political spectrum was under fire at the moment), wing nuts, and a host of other commonly used metaphors to describe anyone who does not voluntarily submit and comply to the United Nations plan to deconstruct the United States.

According to promoters of Agenda 21, the 1992 agreement signed by Bush 1, did not mean anything.  These same promoters claimed that Agenda 21 was an [old] obscure document and that efforts to highlight the link between this insidious agreement and the current trend of forcing rural/agricultural property owners off their land, particularly in Northern California  was simply not true.  More

“A bully not confronted and taken down, is a bully empowered to continue on his path of devastation and destruction, of lives and livelihoods, especially those self righteous bullies who bully others under the false flag of compassion.”  

Ron Ewart

Don’t you just love it when the good guys stick it to the bullies?  The bullies have been running the playground for a hundreds years now, but finally, the other kids are drumming up the courage to push back against the bully and his minions and mindless, bought-off groupies.

Americans are showing up at town hall meetings like never before and they are angry and loaded for bear.  They’re packing city and county halls with people who have finally woken up to the sly, covert intrusion of social justice, communism, socialism, radical environmentalism and the one-world-government, into our local, state and federal institutions.  More frequently you will find these patriots at legislative hearings crying foul over special interest legislation and overt, blatant attacks on the constitution or the natural order.  You will find them at budget hearings where every line item in a government’s budget is scrutinized and then made public for all to see, including all of the crony handouts and give-aways to their favorite voters, or donors.

School board meetings are becoming a lot more lively these days over what our kids are being taught.  The parents of kids in a school southeast of Seattle, WA found out that the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, requested that a special class be taught to their kids on Muslim tolerance by representatives of an organization that has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.   The school board backed up when the parents descended on a town hall meeting and let ’em have it.  KOMO TV NEWS was there.  The question is, why did the school board think that it was a good idea in the first place, or why did they think they could get away with it?  Now that IS troubling!  The word “bully” comes to mind.
