Wisconsin under Siege

Paul Griepentrog ________________________________________________

Despite not being a Republican I am often invited to the functions, like the Price County Presidents Day Dinner.  I enjoy the opportunity to converse with elected officials, but the union reich was present with their protesters and attempted to violate my right to be secure in my person by taking my picture, my wife held her hand over the camera and the lady stated she had a right to take pictures, undoubtedly to use for future retaliation.  Four police officers were present to protect meeting attendees. 

I was disappointed that my state representative, Mary Williams, was told not to appear because of security issues regarding threats to her, her daughter, a teacher, and granddaughter in grade school.  The union storm troopers even protested at the restaurant owned by Mary and her husband Al, in Medford WI. 

My state senator Pam Galloway was in attendance and indicated she was going to initiate an investigation regarding the doctor at the capitol writing medical excuses for teachers missing school on national television, in conjunction with the Department of Justice and State Licensing Board.  Pam had to leave early under police escort for her protection. 

Keynote speaker was the congress member for this district, Sean Duffy having defeated Dave Obey in the fall election.  He proceeded to go into self praising diatribe about his votes regarding budget cuts.  I questioned him regarding why the USDA requested 14.2 million for the Animal Traceability Program which the USDA had rolled NAIS program into on the Federal Register by sleight of hand and that it had been defunded by the previous congress and ruled by the judiciary as having no benefit for animal disease control. He went blank and responded that it was good constituents brought these issues to his attention. DUH 

The attendance was bigger than ever with many non members present from even two counties away to show support for Governor Walker’s proposal despite the attempt by protesters to park all the stalls full. 

In my opinion the justification that union members are only doing what they have to doesn’t hold water, when they threaten legislators and their families they have gone too far.  There is no reason to tolerate this type of behavior or allow these people to continue, their arrogant kind simply need to go.  No foreign terrorist group would be tolerated if conducting this type of activity.

Having returned home early Thursday afternoon from her job down state, due to my illness, my wife arrived at the Emergency Room of the Howard Young Hospital.  The attendant at the desk called regarding my status and told my wife “I’m sorry; your husband is no longer with us.”  However reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated. 

We will be forced to pay for the treatment received out of our own pockets as we are without insurance.  A situation facilitated by increasing property taxes as a direct result of teacher retirement.  It seems as if the Park Falls school district failed to provide the necessary funds back in the eighties and now finds itself with a million dollar debt that it will be writing its own bond for.  When questioned as to the individuals responsible, we were informed that doesn’t matter.  This cover up was facilitated in part by none other than County Clerk Jean Gotwald serving in her capacity on the Chequamegon School District.  We were told the state employees union carried the debt for the failed payments and now we owe them principal and interest.   More

Wisconsin DATCP: A rogue agency continues its assault on milk producers

“A clear cut act of coercion, being forced to waive their rights just to market milk. “

____________________________________________ 

Yup! DATCP won again! As Mark and Jane Brothen pled no contest to charges of failure to register a premises.  

Unable to afford or procure competent counsel and lacking the ability to represent themselves left them with little choice, after all the state run education system falls grievously short of providing scholars of the necessary information to obtain due process of law, and deliberately so. 

Jubilant with their boot heel victory over another family farm Donna Gilson, spokesperson for DATCP, rushed to press somewhat prematurely as her announcement was three days prior to the entry in the court record.  An act in clear violation of Wisconsin Statutes  §943.201 except for one thing; Mark and Jane are licensed dairy producers and as part of the application for that license were forced to wave their privacy rights and allow DATCP to do whatever it wants with their information. 

Even when producers try and make a reservation of rights the heavy handed Cheryl Daniels wrote: 

 “If a person wants to be a dairy producer, they must submit the application as written.  If they want a license, they need to follow our rules.  Premises is a term under our statute. Have them resubmit the application or tell them it will be denied.”

Wisconsin continues its assault against independent agriculture

Wisconsin Reports

Pretext

As it was my intent to deliver three articles in sequence I found my life had again been invaded Thursday morning by an act of vandalism, a person or persons unknown to me entered my barn (burglary) released my animals (a felony in Wisconsin) and opened the doors to the grain storage areas allowing the animals to engorge themselves with grain.  This occurrence coincided with other acts of aggression to individuals opposed to the comprehensive land use plan.  There were three snowmobiles operating unlawfully on the road that night, in the past anyone complaining about such activity has been subject to acts of aggression, as in one case where the complainant had a snowmobiler drive into his driveway and discharge a firearm at his house.   More

Wisconsin weather modification program

Wisconsin Reports
 
 Yesterday I finally received a response to my open records request to the Department of Ag Trade and Consumer Protection for “All licenses, permits, records, reports and notices of exempt operations pursuant to State statute § 93.35 and ATCP 54.06 regarding weather modification.”

  The response from Brian D. Kuhn was “We have no records of anyone ever having applied for a license or permit related to weather modification, nor have we any notices of exempt operations pursuant to statute §93.35 and ATCP 54.06.”   Interesting that the response took over a month before I received it, which raises questions the greater concern is that despite the extensive private and governmental record requirements impose by statute none exist in the history of the statute.  With the advent of the documentary “What in the World are They Spraying” a reasonable person would expect that an agency charged with consumer protection would be enforcing these statutes.

  DATCP’s track record for this type of protection is woefully inadequate, despite thousands of complaints only few are investigated and none are prosecuted.  Unless the complaint is generated by DATCP officials in order to obtain warrants to raid farms.  An act itself in violation of statute as all complaints must issue from a consumer inclusively.

  But living up to the letter of the law isn’t DATCP’s forte,   in fact in yet another open records request it came to light that Randy Romanski, the recently appointed Secretary is operating under color of office, having never taken his oath of office and recording said oath with the Secretary of State. 

    § 17.03 Vacancies, how caused. Except as otherwise provided, a public office is vacant when:

(7) A person elected or appointed or reelected or reappointed to any office neglects or refuses to take and file the official oath or to execute or renew the official bond if required, or to file the oath or bond as prescribed by law.
 Don’t get your hopes up, seems as though the black robe society has ruled that because the legislature provided no penalty provisions in the statute that anyone failing to file an oath or bond can continue in that position until successfully challenged and convicted in a court, and that all acts done in this dejure/defacto status are valid. .  How about plugging in a class I felony for failure to perform a ministerial duty?

 Interesting note is that there were no penalty provisions in the Premises Registration statute either.
  When DATCP can’t get what it wants directly they send in USDA APHIS to conduct night raids and interrogations of farmers, coercing farmers into signing affidavits, without counsel present, agreeing to answer questions regarding their farming activities.  Interesting coincidence that the raids initiated on the same day the USDA announced its appointments to citizens group for animal identification.  A reward for services rendered no doubt.
 
  This is the first of a three part series delving into the goings on here in wisconSIN. Next will be the states persecution of yours truly and the final segment as to the proposed remedy by Governor elect Walker.

While visiting the Wild Berry Market in Minoqua WI today, I noticed a large amount of produce marked locally grown/sustainable.  Curious about the source,  I questioned Megan Rudisill, an owner, where the product came from.  She responded Antigo, 70 miles away.  I said that didn’t qualify as local or sustainable because the product was of no economic benefit to the community.

Wisconsin Reports: The Race for the 87th Assembly district

Wisconsin Reports

_______________________________________________________

The race for the 87th Assembly district. 

In the upcoming election in the 87th district there are two candidates, Mary Williams, the Republican incumbent and Democrat, Dana Schultz.  As a rural district dependent on agriculture and tourism the economic situation is at the forefront of the issues in this election. 

Mary Williams has a track record of supporting agriculture, both large and small.  The economic stimulus bill she sponsored for rural areas was line itemed vetoed by Governor Doyle and ended up being used in the suburbs.  Mary voted for the raw milk bill despite dairy industry claims that everyone would drop dead from consuming raw milk, having been raised on raw milk, Mary knew better.  

She co-sponsored the voluntary premises registration bill with the hope to end prosecution of Wisconsin producers; producers who were resistant because of religious or constitutional reasons.  

A future proposal of a legislative committee regarding fraud and abuse of government programs was spurred by fraudulent activity surrounding alleged day care centers in and around Milwaukee where recipients receiving grants had not even cared for children at all, one of which was actually a house of ill repute.   More

Wisconsin Reports: The Fiefdom of Fifield.

Wisconsin Reports: The Fiefdom of Fifield

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

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

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

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

While listening to WPR’s broadcast debate between the candidates for the 87th district I couldn’t help but notice that jobs and the economy were the high point of debate.  Interestingly enough, I’ve tried to contact both Mary Williams (incumbent) and Dana Schultz for interviews regarding issues concerning non corporate farms; they haven’t had time to respond.  Or is it: they don’t want to face the music? 

 

Could it be that the legislature itself has failed to recognize that their onerous lawmaking and subsequent rulemaking by administrative agencies has been stifling our economy?

 

The legislature has declared the owning of property, in the form of livestock and land, to be a crime.  More

S.510: The Making of America’s own “holodomor”

“A formal rebuttal was filed regarding FDA’s claim of intrastate authority on the Federal Register, wherein the FDA sought to gain authority for rulemaking and thereby having commenced an action.   Having failed to respond, the FDA is therefore in default pursuant to Federal Rule 36 and has acquiesced by silence to the fact that it has no authority over    intrastate  trade.”

___________________________________________

Honorable Senators;?

The proposed bill S 510 leaves much to be desired in its application from a judicial aspect.  It voids due process of law and equal protection under the law by allowing the administrator to have only a “reason to believe” to initiate a takings against a food producer in the form of a recall.  These same applications conspicuously do not apply to corporate producers.  In the case of the individual, it is a clear abrogation of rights perpetrated by a political body which seems intent on depriving the people of their rights. 

We find it difficult to believe that you, as Senators, would not be aware of the fact that you are intentionally abrogating the rights of individuals and are actively promoting the idea that prohibiting access to the courts and subjecting individuals to police state provisions, intended only to make it impossible for family and independent producers to remain in agriculture, would somehow be lawful. We find it disgusting that you would, using the jingosims of “food safety and food security”, hand the control of food production and supply over to corporations and international interests who are interested only in profits and how to control profits even if it destroys clean, safe food. 

These bills effectively convert the right to produce and share food that has been enjoyed since agrarian societies emerged, into a criminal activity. If what you are contemplating can only be accomplished by violating the rights of the people….whose interests are you really serving?  More

The latest USDA dog and pony show for implementing NAIS.

Out with the old and in with the New

The latest USDA dog and pony show for implementing NAIS.

On August 18th in Madison WI the USDA presented its latest attempt to herd the producer masses down the squeeze chute to submission.  Although a show of hands revealed that less than 30% of attendees were in fact producers the audience other than USDA officials was rounded out by DATCP officials, tag company representatives, private vets, UW extension personnel, livestock market, and company reps. 

State and Federal personnel gave their individual spiels, WI state veterinarian Dr. Ehlenfeldt spoke about how the testimony he had given to the state legislature regarding how Wisconsin was going to lead the train in the traceability program and now it appears there is no train.   He presented the various disease trace back situations that had occurred in WI in the past conveniently omitting the pseudo rabies outbreak that involved the Emanuel Miller case.  Not surprising from a man who testified under oath in a Marquette Co. court room that there was no such thing as stray voltage at the outset of his career; a clear case of selective memory that has endured for some time.

Gary Tauchen, a state legislator spoke regarding how the latest traceability was needed to allow Wisconsin international access; as a long term band leader for Farm Bureau policy it was no surprise to find him playing the Codex tune.   More

Foreword:  An announcement was posted yesterday by Judith McGeary of Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) saying that FTCLDF had filed an Amicus brief in the Emmanuel Miller Case.  Below is the actual and original AMICUS filed by Paul Griepentrog in December of 2008 on behalf of Emmanuel Miller.  Mr. Griepentrog can supply copies of original documents showing notary, certification, court time/date stamp and fees paid.  Why would FTCLDF file, or claim to have filed, an AMICUS brief when they have steadfastly refused to enter into, appear on behalf of, or show any interest in these prosecutions prior to this?   Contact: Paul Griepentrog at skfarms@centurytel.net  to request copies of the original documents showing certification and acceptance.

This post includes these documents:
INTERVENER TO FILE BRIEF OF AMICUS CURIAE IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANT
  • VERIFICATION OF THE ADMISSION OF FACTS BY THE PARTIES
  • NOTICE OF ACTIVATION OF ESTOPEL
  • ADMISSION TO INQUIRIES             
  • VERIFICATION OF THE ADMISSION OF FACTS BY THE PARTIES
  • CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE

____________________________________________

Where did these people come from?

There are 22 groups listed below that have signed on an amicus brief that alleges to support Emanuel Miller.  This brief advocates a voluntary premises registration program in Wisconsin.  In as much as it was the intent of the legislature that participation be voluntary when the existing legislation was passed we can only assume these groups wish to further the suffering we now endure.  This brief is of no benefit to those of us here.  The religious convictions of Mr. Miller were established at trial and have no need of reiteration.  Nor do any of us here wish to endure any form of premises registration, having faced the persecution of an overzealous Agriculture Department that refused to allow any exemptions despite the intent of the legislature.

We find the only in state group signed on to this is the Family Farm Defenders who in a quest to further their own groups funds by selling toasted cheese sandwiches at an event by Michael Pollan in Madison and completely forgot Emanuel Miller’s Trial.  This group opposed supporting our lobbying efforts for Scott Suder’s bill.

We find R-CALF USA who having been apprised of the situation for over a year in reports I gave to the Animal ID Committee on a monthly basis, now in violation of their own policy which states they are opposed to all forms of NAIS.  When I went to them wanting an alert when Pat and Melissa were charged my pleas fell on deaf ears, only a week before the trial did they finally put out an alert, despite their claims that this was not a national issue. 

Where are those claims now when these out of state national groups seek to interfere and counter the work that is being done here? 

We seek to overturn the statute and end this nightmare, but the groups listed below want this to continue.  Not one of them I contacted had read the brief or contacted the only group here actively involved in supporting those facing prosecution, the Wisconsin Independent Consumers and Farmers Association (WICFA).

There were no representatives at either trial from any of these groups, a true reflection of their concern.  This act on their part is to derail our efforts to have the enabling legislation declared null and void and free ourselves completely from this burden.  Voluntary is not acceptable to us and would be as a snake coiled in the corner ready to strike again. 

In the words of Emanuel Miller “On this there can be no compromise.” More
