Minnesota’s Benedict Arnold(s)

Leave a comment

The attacks keep coming.

Not just from Senator Ron Latz. No, not even from Dave Pinto or Linda Slocum, the author of HF 3022, the gun-control MEGA Bill!

Gun owners are being attacked by “pro-gun” Republicans, hell bent to make a deal in the misguided hope that it saves their political hides in the upcoming elections!

Gun owners well remember Lyin’ Scott Jensen (R-Chaska) who promised to OPPOSE any and all gun control when he was running for office in 2016 but then quickly sided with Michael Bloomberg and Ron Latz by sponsoring Universal Gun Registration this year.

Now, Representatives Anderson (HD44A) and Loon (HD48B) have joined the large list of “Benedict Arnolds” in St Paul by stabbing gun owners in the back and sponsoring last-minute gun control hoping that Bloomberg’s anti-gun organizations will sing their praises at election time.HF4473, if enacted, would “encourage” gun owners to go through a government “background check” whenever they give a firearm to a family member or sell one to a friend.

In other words, through fear mongering tactics gun owners would be browbeaten into making sure the government can track, trace and register more and more firearms in the state of Minnesota.

This is nothing more than a watered down version of Michael Bloomberg’s Universal Gun Registration designed to be more palatable as they shove it down the throats of Minnesota gun owners to curry political favor with liberal media like the Star Tribune.

But they aren’t the only ones. More

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD – March 6, 2018

Industry-controlled ‘science’ is not really science but a smokescreen to pave the way for products that may be harmful – but what do they care as long as they profit? There are many great scientists but there are also some who are willing to be hired to ‘prove’ that something doesn’t cause cancer, or that something is ‘safe’. You cannot trust the EPA, the FDA, or industry ‘science’.”

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

Here is an incomplete list of some of the culprits:

A) Foreign Mining Corporations (PolyMet, Glencore, Twin Metals, Antofagasta, etc);

  1. Minnesota’s Elected Politicians/Accomplices (both Corporate-influenced “Liberal” Democrats, and “Conservative” Republicans);
  2. Minnesota’s “Regulatory” Agencies that are Supposed to be “Natural Resource Protectors” (Including the DNR, the PCA, and the US Forest Service); and
  3. Most Area Newspapers; Most Area Television Stations; All the Area’s Chambers of Commerce; Minnesota Power (Electric Utility); the Trump Administration; Regional Labor Unions: and Dozens of Suppliers/Businesses that will Temporarily Profit from Supplying the Mining Industry While Simultaneously Risking the Permanent Poisoning of the St Louis River Watershed, Including Lake Superior

This column will point out and try to de-mystify some of the often-perplexing developments in the decades-long debate concerning allowing foreign mining corporations (which could justifiably be considered “Undocumented Aliens”) to invade water-rich northern Minnesota in order to extract our state’s non-ferrous metal deposits- for the selfish enrichment of its foreign shareholders and management, none of whom really care about the long-term consequences to the state’s precious water resources.

Everywhere in the world where copper mines have been dug and the poisonous tailing’s ponds have been installed, there has not been a single one that has not permanently polluted the ground water and the downstream watersheds, often catastrophically, see the list of 100 of them at . State of the art copper sulfide mines inevitably produce as an inevitable by-product sulfuric acid and many other toxic substances that poison the soil, air, ground water, nearby aquifers, lakes and downstream rivers, especially in water-rich environments like northern Minnesota.

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.

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

Minnesota taxpayer rights are under assault./Bag the Ban

Minnesota taxpayer rights are under assault.

In what will be a precedent-setting move for the entire state, Minneapolis is scheduled to pass an illegal tax this Friday that blatantly violates the spirit of Minnesota’s taxpayer protection laws. If they succeed, there will be a domino effect and other cities will use the same playbook to impose higher taxes and institute corporate welfare without giving taxpayers a say in the matter.

It’s not supposed to be easy to raise taxes on the people of Minnesota. State law goes so far as to require a vote of the people before any new sales taxes can be passed. But Minneapolis is going out of its way to dodge similar accountability.

By calling their 5-cent grocery bag tax a “pass-through charge,” and funneling the money straight to corporate retailers instead of a public purpose, Minneapolis City Councilmembers think they can avoid triggering state taxpayer protections.

We cannot let this happen. That’s why we’ve put together a petition to alert Minnesota elected officials to what’s going on in Minneapolis and to urge them to stop this outrageous policy before taxpayer protections are eroded throughout our state.

Minneapolis does not need more taxes and government control. What our state needs is more accountability to taxpayers.

Click here to sign the petition and fight back against higher taxes and corporate giveaways.

Thanks,

Briefs Reveal More Shocking Behavior in Rucki Case.

Michael Volpe

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

In separate response briefs to pro se attorneys, the Dakota County Prosecutor’s Office has acknowledged jury tampering, misdirected an allegation of witness tampering, and refused to respond to address all allegations of judicial misconduct in the Rucki case.

The briefs from Dakota County Prosecutor James Backstrom were in response to briefs filed by Dede Evavold and Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, both representing themselves.

Evavold has been representing herself after the state ruled her too well off to receive an attorney while Grazzini-Rucki was represented but was so disgusted by her attorney’s brief that she filed one on her own.

Her attorney, Steven Russett, who was provided by the Minnesota Appellate Public Defender’s Office, did not respond to an email and voicemail for comment.

In the most startling admission, the prosecutors acknowledge- responding to Grazzini-Rucki- that a reporter approached the jury while they were in a common area during a lunch break and asked if any wanted to be interviewed when the trial ended.

The reporter’s name is Laura Adelmann, who works for the Sun Current, the hometown newspaper of Lakeville, Minnesota, where the Rucki’s live. “There was one occasion during trial in which it was it was reported to Judge Asphaug that a reporter (I.E. Laura Adelmann) had approached the jurors while they were eating in the common area of the courthouse and asked if she could interview them after the trial was over.” Backstrom’s brief stated.

This incident occurred on Friday July 18, 2016, while the trial was ongoing, and on Monday July 21, 2016, Judge Asphaug issued this statement to the court gallery. More

Minnesota’s Environment….what government doesn’t tell you about the effects of mining

Leave a comment

Minnesota’s Environment

Sulfide mining produces toxic waste that could irreversibly damage Minnesota’s fragile lakes, rivers and natural resources.

This is not our grandparents’ iron mining — sulfide mining has never been done in Minnesota. While iron mines have significant environmental challenges of their own, the sulfuric acid that is produced with sulfide mining makes it particularly difficult to avoid polluting nearby lakes, streams and ground water.

Acid Mine Drainage

When water and air mix with the waste from iron mining, rust is produced. But when the same process happens with sulfide mining, sulfuric acid is created. When this acid dissolves rock and leaches out toxic heavy metals, the substance is commonly called “Acid Mine Drainage.”

When water and air mix with iron mining waste, you get rust. With sulfide mining, sulfuric acid is produced.

Acid Mine Drainage has devastated water bodies in many states where this type of mining has occurred. It kills fish, wildlife and plants, leaving lakes, rivers and streams devoid of most living creatures.

Effects on people, water and wildlife

Humans
Mining by-products such as arsenic, manganese and thallium, have been shown in high levels to increase the risk of cancer and other illnesses in humans. Because mining takes place below the water table, it’s easy for contamination to leach out of the mine into groundwater, threatening drinking water supplies and health.

It is best to hear it from their own mouth:

Published on 10-20-2016 by The American Herald International Public Notice

The Government of The United States of America is now accusing Minnesota for violations of Human Rights and charges are expected to be file within the Human Rights Tribunal as early as today.

Allegedly, Minnesota nor any of the other 49 states can prove that their union is legal that was created after the civil war. This means that the states are notwithstanding on anything they are doing under any compact agreements that have been made. The Compact Agreements made by and between the states are not regulated in anyway by anyone. More
