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

The Australians are back!  The last few weeks have seen major activity behind the scenes.  The first Australian Summit on trustee (guardianship) abuse and estate theft was held.  Approximately 100 victims attended and spoke.  With media, the shadow Attorney General Mr David Jantezkin in attendance, the 3 hour planned summit was extended to 5 hours to allow everyone to speak.

Highlighted at the Summit were the:

  • Physical & Psychological Isolation- Usually very quick
  • Bed side hearings
  • Victims drugged and moved without notice
  • Notice they do this when the victim is close to family and loved ones
  • Order placed to control visitations

In the midst of all this,  the Australian government tries to cover its tracks and close all the loopholes in what is an expanding police state.  Everything is being privatized including titles on property.  Even the banking royal commissioner is upset over the growing distrust of the government.  The efforts currently appear centered on property and financial interests.

We will also have several family members of victims calling in.

The Battle to Protect Nebraska Land from Big OIL

Make sure your voice is heard. Sign-on to stop Keystone XL.

Marti —

While we are continuing to challenge the Trump administration’s rubber-stamp approval of the federal permit for Keystone XL in the courts, Trump’s State Department recently opened a public comments docket for an “Environmental Assessment” of the new Mainline Alternative route for KXL in Nebraska.

This new route includes land in Nebraska counties that has never before undergone environmental review, and where landowners never knew until now — after all the years of public hearings and submitting comments — that KXL might be plowing through their farms, and had no due process and chance to make their voices heard.

Basically, there’s a huge list of problems with this illegal review. It’s an attempt to shoe-horn a review of private property in Nebraska by a federal agency with no authority over that land, into an illegally outdated environmental review of KXL from 2014, in clear violation of the bedrock National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

But we still need to make our voices heard. Despite this illegal sham review process that’s been set in motion — which we will continue to fight in the courts — it’s critical that Nebraskans especially, but all Pipeline Fighters sign on and tell the Trump administration they are opposed to Keystone XL.

Action: Sign-on to Bold’s #NoKXL comment to Trump’s State Department.

We’ve composed a sample comment you can sign-on to, that covers all the bases on protesting this illegal process with the same arguments our attorneys are using in court, and includes key issues of concern for Nebraska’s land, water and property rights, and sovereign rights of Indigenous nations. You may also edit the language, or add your own personal statement to the comment.

*Important: If you are a landowner on the new “Mainline Alternative” route, please contact mark@boldnebraska.org for assistance with submitting your comment. For instance, if you have water crossings, or known endangered species or wildlife habitat on your land, be sure to include exact locations and detailed information about them in your comments. 

The deadline to submit a public comment is June 25th. 

Act now: Sign on to Bold’s #NoKXL comment.

Thanks for standing with us.

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

19 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.

THE AMERICAN DREAM & PROPERTY RIGHTS VS. ASSET FORFEITURE–CODE ENFORCEMENT NO COURT HEARING, NO JURY TRIAL & NO DUE PROCESS

Author, Chuck Frank

You were at home with your family and you had just sat down to have a nice breakfast which included eggs and bacon and a blueberry muffin when there was a knock at the door. You looked out of your window and saw an unmarked car and two people, one of which was wearing camo and you thenwent to the door. It was code enforcement. An undisclosed neighbor had filed an anonymous “complaint” to the county with regard to a vacation rental that had been built which was no larger than an out building and was located above a creek on 37 acres in a small town in Northern California. Code enforcement, a rogue unconstitutional policing unit, introduced themselves as being part of the KGB, excuse my play on words, as I meant to say the Community Development Agency, CDA, which also worked in conjunction with the Building Department, Planning, the Sheriff, his Deputies and a court that favored city and county government, but it became obvious that constitutional and unalienable rights which had been written in stone ever since the early 1800’s, were not included.

The Bill of Rights:
The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers,
and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be
violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported
by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be
searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Code Enforcement was now on a mission with “seizure fever” while the lead person demanded, with no warrant, that they take a look at the building which was located 1,100 ft. down a gentle slope and rested on a foundation and a flat piece of ground. Yet, this was now the beginning of a long fought battle between one family and a bureaucracy that had not one ounce of mercy but only an agenda that can best be traced to a bunch of two bit players benefiting from the glorified welfare state, while most of them were making an extra $100.00 or more per hour dealing with building department and
planning directives.   Yet, at the same time, city and county codes and ordinances were supported with threats and fines for those who were perhaps out of compliance, and thus, the backdrop of the old and brutal Draconian laws of ancient Greece were now in place and running amok, while ruining countless persons dreams and their livelihoods, but not only in the example below, but in many other cases within the same county, where there is an endless train of code enforcers swarming the land while satellite surveillance is in place to help them focus on their next victim.

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

A Message for American Bar Association Members

A Nation Beguiled

By Anna Von Reitz

Since 1868 this country has been criminally mismanaged and misrepresented in gross breach of trust, and in violation of solemn treaties and commercial service contracts.  This has resulted, among other things, in the practice of personage and barratry in American courts and on a worldwide basis.

Personage is essentially a crime of identity theft.  A living man or woman is deliberately presumed to be some form of incorporated entity instead and their lawful Trade Name is trespassed upon and mischaracterized to secure this end.

An example would be a living man named “James Clarence Penny” being deliberately mistaken as a C-Corporation doing business as “JC PENNY”, or a public transmitting utility doing business as “JAMES C. PENNY” or a public estate trust doing business as “JAMES CLARENCE PENNY” or a co-operative doing business as “JAS C. PENNY” and so on and on.

Barratry is the associated crime of bringing charges against living people under the false presumption that they are in fact legal fiction entities.

The American Bar Association has practiced both personage and barratry against the American people since at least 1933.  The Prima Facie evidence for this stands upon the court records of every maritime and admiralty court allowed to dry-dock in this country.

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.

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.

Alberta Canada’s experience with Keystone operations

1 Comment

strip bannerDNRE-Kalamazoo-River

Note:  Every effort is being made to force the passage of the Keystone pipeline.  This bill WILL NOT give the US any form of energy independence as all crude is slated to be shipped out of the country and into the global market.  Upon completion, it will provide only 35-42 permanent jobs.  This is a steep price to pay for land devastation, water contamination, spills, leaks and the dumping of toxic waste materials in Wisconsin and Minnesota.  This pipeline will also violate private property rights.

As all of this oil is slated for shipment out of the country, it would have been more cost efficient for Keystone to run a line west through Canadian states to its west coast.  But guess what!  Canadians aren’t having it!  Thats why Keystone is trying to invade the US and cause catastrophic damage here.

By the way:  Even with the horrendous history of just the last four months involving spills, leaks, water contamination etc., listed in the article below……Keystone will NOT be liable for any spills, cleanup or damage to land and water here in the US. 

And you can thank Republican’s for this fiasco!

There’s Been HOW Many Pipeline Spills in Alberta in The Last Four Months??

DailyKos

Alberta, Canada is basically a petro state. Oil and gas production rule everything and it’s happening everywhere in the north of the province. Pipelines criss cross most of Alberta. As a result, leaks of wells, facilities and pipelines are a constant thing all over the province. More

Historically, for nearly 400 years the American family which began with native Americans and European roots became an integral foundational part of the country that we now know.  Though many trials were encountered along the way the traditional family weathered the storms of life and not only built a country that became like no other, the people held on to cultural and moral values that were enshrined in one Judeo-Christian nation, under God, which also included holy matrimony between a man and a woman. But where are we today?

Here is a not so golden snapshot.

Since 2005, the majority of U.S. households have not been headed by married couples. The number of non-married-couple households continues to grow (ACS 2005-2007). There are more than 51 million households headed by unmarried Americans, representing roughly 44% of all households and the majority of households in 23 states, plus the District of Columbia (CPS, 2007).

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

Bureau of Land Management: Government Sponsored Domestic Terrorism

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

Prior to the attack on the Bundy ranch, the BLM, the same one that showed up dressed for war, has had a long running war against the wild horses, not only in Nevada, but also in virtually every other western state. Repeatedly violating the Wild Horse & Burro Act of 1971 by chasing, terrorizing, capturing, and sending to slaughter thousands of wild horses, the BLM has been held above the law (anarchism) by successive courts.

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

I woke this morning wondering if the talking heads at MSNBC had survived the night, after the Cliven Bundy implosion yesterday. Bundy, who made remarks pertaining to slavery, had caused MSNBC to nearly burst into virtual flames. It was the same on almost every other cable news station. I can’t even think of what must be happening at the Southern Poverty Law (Lie) Center.

101021-lean-forward3sWhen the smoke settled, politicians everywhere had run for cover.  Most  had remained silent during the government sponsored terrorism of the Bundy’s.  Few had had the jewels to come out in defense of this family against government thugs.  Those that had, quickly disappeared into the shadows.  Apparently, it is ok for the BLM to launch a full scale attack on one lane rancher, but “racism” is kryptonite for the politically connected.

For two days MSNBC hung a dialogue box on the screen with the words “welfare rancher” emblazoned in it regardless of whom was speaking on the Bundy issue.  That was followed with the word “racist”.

So there you have it.

It wasn’t that the BLM had laid siege to the Bundy ranch with more than 200 “troops”, tanks, grenade launchers, AK -47‘s, and paid Blackwater style assassins to take the last remaining rancher off the land in Clark County, Nevada.

It wasn’t that a federal militarized agency, militarized for use against the public, had shown up on private land over a dispute with every intention of stealing every one of Cliven Bundy’s cattle, killing them, and most likely the family along with them in order to put him off the land and out of business…….it was that Bundy was a racist.

Well. That makes all the difference in the world. No wonder the BLM thugs showed up geared for war as if they were prepared to fight a battle in the mid-east.

Why did you steal those cows?

Civilian national Security force: Another name for the growing police state

______________________________________________________________________

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” –Barack Obama,Obama’s Civilian National Security Force

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

Domestic terrorism by domestic agencies

The civilian national security force was never intended to be populated by private citizens, but rather, by hired citizens who could be convinced to violate the constitution, and your rights simply by virtue of wearing a tin badge and told they were not constrained by anything as marginal as the law.34043_1thm

By now it should have become obvious, that rather than just using our military to attack us in-country, it is far more effective to militarize various federal and state agencies and have them do the attacking under cover of the agency. Claiming they are defending the law, upholding statutes and regulations, military style swat teams from numerous federal agencies have been steadily attacking, threatening and harassing private citizens. These attacks are nothing less than acts of war perpetrated by the federal agencies on behalf of the federal government.

That terrorist you are so afraid of is your neighbor

“If you see something…Say Something”…I would like to report that the terrorists we need to fear are inside the gates.

They were our neighbors, our family members; now unrecognizable as the transformation from ordinary citizen to badge heavy, agency employed, domestic terrorist takes place. And these people are domestic terrorists by any definition. They do not work for “we the people”, but rather, for corporate interests both foreign and domestic. They will willingly violate the laws you are required to comply with, without blinking an eye. The constitution? Your rights? Not even a consideration.

The Civilian National Security force that Obama was speaking about was created under the fake food safety bill passed in 2010, via “Dirty Harry” Reid’s infamous, unanimous and singular vote. Without objection! Every one of the remaining 99 Senators voluntarily vacated the senate chamber to facilitate “Dirty Harry’s” one unanimous vote. Every other Democrat and Republican senator was in on the deal.

And here’s how “Dirty Harry” pulled off the hostile takeover of agriculture By Fred Kelly Grant | December 21, 2010

Then, on the floor of the Senate in the late afternoon, early evening of Sunday, December 19, Senator Reid called the Recycling bill for a vote and there was no objection from the two other Senators who were on the floor. So by unanimous consent HR 2751 was passed. Then Senator Reid moved for reconsideration with the vote to be tabled. This was granted by the same unanimous consent because there was no other Senator on the floor. Then Senator Reid offered without objection amendment number 4890 which substituted S. 510 the Food Safety Bill for the Recycling Bill. Without objection, then the amendment was passed and the Food Safety Bill had been substituted for the Recycling Bill. Reid moved that the bill be read for the third time and asked for the question. Without objection, the bill passed, and the Food Safety Bill was on the way back to the House.

The result? The militarization of federal agencies in preparation for the coming assaults on family and independent food producers and on private property rights. This bill had little to do with food safety and much to do with assembling the in-country attack units now employed by USDA, FDA, EPA and the notoriously corrupt BLM. More

The Occupation of America

______________________________________________________________________

In essence, this Act formed the corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. Note the capitalization, because it is important. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, moved right in and shoved the original “organic” version of the Constitution into a dusty corner. With the “Act of 1871,” our Constitution was defaced in the sense that the title was block-capitalized and the word “for” was changed to the word “of” in the title. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers, was written in this manner:

“The Constitution for the united states of America”.

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

ababaaThe people of the United States of America are the subject of massive domestic terroristic activities perpetrated by the federal government and its agencies which have, in most cases, been militarized against us.

The Constitution limits the type of property the federal government can own and occupy. And, if our Constitution was in force, and the federal government had not been incorporated in 1871, the Bureau of Land (mis)Management and other federal sub-corporations would not be an armed and occupying force within the geographical boundaries of the states.

  • The wild horses and burros would not be illegally rounded up and slaughtered,
  • our forests would not be allowed to deteriorate and then to burn,
  • our water would not be contaminated with industrialized chemicals, fracking chemicals, drilling residuals,
  • our public lands within the states would be far better managed and maintained locally,
  • Desperately needed revenues from state assets would remain in the states and would not be funneled to the federal government via its corporate agencies.

Instead, our state legislatures have, in the past, contracted with the federal corporations to allow them to establish and implement their business plans, taking land, water and resources at the expense of the public. Even today, state legislatures continually enter into agreements with federal corporations that adversely affect the people. Everything is for sale, including “we the people”.

Now, under Obama’s promise of constructing an massive inland police force, federal agencies are assembling military style forces for use inside the geographical boundaries of the states and have begun attacking private citizens and businesses. The FDA and USDA have “swat teams” that include tanks, grenade launchers, AK-47‘s, military helicopters and “troops” the size of military battalions. The recent stand-off with rancher Clive Bundy revealed a threatening display of agency “military” force. These forces were constructed to by-pass local law enforcement and state laws.

We are no longer a free country

Protesters arrive to back Bundy in Nevada

_______________________________________________________________________

“It appears the BLM had big plans for just how they were going to put Bundy out of business via cattle rustling and by presenting a military style assault on the ranch and its occupants.  As of this morning, Saturday, April 12th, 2014, the BLM said it would not steal any more of Bundy’s cattle. “

_____________________________________________________________

As hundreds of protesters from around the country arrived in Nevada to back the Clovin Bundy ranch, the BLM rethought its military stance and is packing up its AR-15’s, its military helicopters and snipers, and heading for the safety of Las Vegas.  The gambling odds in Vegas provide a better percentage of wins than the growing protest at the ranch.

The BLM claimed Bundy had not practiced beneficial use of the land and water in numerous court battles.  For this to be true, Bundy’s cattle would  have been doing little grazing or drinking water on public lands.

If it is true that his cattle did graze and drink, then the charge of failing to meet beneficial use guidelines turns out to be fraudulent.

Bundy stopped paying grazing fees in 1992 when BLM failed to meet its contractual obligation regarding water and land improvements.  Bundy did make the improvements with his own money.

(United States Revised Statutes section 2339, 2340: *234)When one has complied with the local laws for the appropriation of water, and has constructed upon vacant public lands of the United States the works for diversion of the water, he thereby acquires a vested and an accrued right within the meaning of said section the rights thus acquired are superior to the rights of a subsequent entryman [**1018] upon said lands. 

This means that Bundy had established vested water and land rights that trumped any subsequent federal land and water grabs using statute, code and internal mandates.

20 years later on a ranch far, far away in Nevada

The BLM first appeared at the Bundy ranch right after 1.27 million in fracking leases were handed out:

This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870′s. The “Gold Butte” area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.

What’s also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself. (Natural News)

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

From ShaleReporter.com:

U.S. Bureau of Land Management geologist Lorenzo Trimble tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal the Elko County oil and gas leases sold Tuesday for $1.27 million to six different companies. The auction took place in Reno. The leases are near where Houston-based Noble Energy Inc. wants to drill for oil and natural gas on 40,000 acres of public and private land near the town of Wells. The Review-Journal reports the project would be the first in Nevada to use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to extract oil and gas from shale deposits. More

Nevada’s Waco: BLM more violent than the FBI?

_____________________________________________________________________

As “troops” are assembled against one lone rancher, the assault on private property rights and 1st Amendment rights are being ratcheted up at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada.

~~~~~~~~

 From Ben Swann:

UPDATE: Strike teams of 15-20 agents are attempting to take the cattle and often in the process killing and burying the cattle in the desert. A group of roughly 100 peaceful protestors attempted to stop them and got in front of a convoy of agents in an attempt to call in the local sheriff as they perceived this as an illegal action. BLM agents began violently attacking the protestors, throwing women to the ground with a number of men being tazed. Agents ended up retreating after their initial attack. Protestors are awaiting and anticipating a more forceful response and requesting assistance from all freedom fighters/lovers in the SW U.S. and nationwide.”

~~~~~~~~

Across the country, but most especially in the Western states, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has revealed itself to be nothing more than an uncontrollable and direct threat to the sovereignty and economic stability of the states. At issue currently, is the massive militarized preparation for the assault on the Clive Bundy ranch in Nevada, orchestrated by the BLM.

Having already illegally seized 277 of the Bundy’s 900 head of cattle, the BLM with the cooperation of so-called “professional cowboys” and with the willful blindness of Nevada’s governor, state representatives and senators, the Bundy’s stand prepared to defend themselves, their land and property rights, even to the point of death. The BLM has indicated it is more than willing to oblige the Bundy’s, setting an example to other ranchers or property rights activists that the BLM will do what it pleases and no one will stop them.

This is what the BLM and its agents are doing to other Americans.  Regardless of your  position on the Wild horse & Burro’s, or your position on cattle operations, your focus here should be the violent assault on a private property owner by agents employed by a federal corporation that routinely violates property rights, and rights of the individual to benefit the federal government.  If this man loses this battle, if we do not support him in his efforts to protect what is rightfully his, we all lose!

As the preparations by the BLM and its thugs continues, the level of testosterone oozing from every pore of agents dressed in military gear, flying military style helicopters overhead and brandishing weaponry and personal gear more suited for a military conflict, is literally dripping off the mesquite. Nothing is quite as invigorating as being part of a military style operation against one lone individual, knowing that that individual has little or no defense against the assault you are about to launch against them. And, also knowing that regardless of how unwarranted, illegal or heinous your actions are, you will never be held accountable. More

Ruby Ridge-style Standoff Brewing: Armed Feds Prepare For Showdown With Nevada Cattle Rancher

RED FLAG NEWS

Storms

(by Paul Joseph watson, Infowars.com) — A Ruby Ridge-style standoff is brewing in Nevada, where dozens of armed federal agents are closing in on cattle rancher Cliven Bundy over claims that Bundy has allowed his cows to graze illegally on government land, endangering a protected species of tortoise.

8 News NOW

Vowing to take a stand for, “your liberty and freedom,” Bundy says he is prepared to be killed as authorities surround a 600,000 acre section of public land as a result of Bundy violating a 1993 Bureau of Land Management ruling which changed grazing rights in order to protect the endangered desert tortoise.

“With all these rangers and all this force that is out here, they are only after one man right now. They are after Cliven Bundy. Whether they want to incarcerate me or whether they want to shoot me in the back, they are after me. But that is not all that is at stake here. Your liberty and freedom is at stake,” Bundy said.

Bundy’s refusal to recognize federal authority over the land under dispute and his failure to pay tens of thousands of dollars in grazing fees stems from his assertion that his family’s history trumps bureaucracy.

“My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and water. I have been here longer. My rights are before the BLM even existed,” Bundy said.

Accusing feds of seizing Nevada’s sovereignty, Bundy says he has fought the battle legally, through the media, and is now gearing up to fight it physically.

“Armed agents are forming a military-like staging area to prevent anyone from approaching the area,” writes Mike Paczesny.

Bundy asserts that his case is emblematic of how America has been transformed into a “police state,” labeling the government’s actions “pathetic”.

Hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy’s cattle on Saturday as Bundy accused them of “trespassing,” adding that the impact will only serve to raise beef prices for residents of Las Vegas 80 miles away.

Feds postponed a similar raid in 2012 over fears the action would spur violence. Bundy has drawn a lot of support from the local community and protesters are heading to the area to demand authorities back off. Officials have created a taped off “First Amendment Area” where demonstrators can voice their concerns. A sign placed inside the area reads “Welcome to Amerika – Wake Up” alongside a hammer and sickle logo.

“The rights were created for us,” Bundy told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “I have the right to use the forage. I have water rights. I have access rights. I have range improvement rights, and I claim all the other rights that the citizens of Nevada have, whether it’s to camp, to fish or to go off road.”

Addressing the justification of seizing the cattle to protect a species of tortoise, Bundy stated, “I’ll never get it. If it weren’t for our cattle, there’d be more brush fires out here. The tortoises eat the cow manure, too. It’s filled with protein.”

The standoff has echoes of the 1992 Ruby Ridge incident, during which Randy Weaver, accused of selling an ATF agent two illegal sawed-off shotguns, became embroiled in a tragic confrontation with the the United States Marshals Service (USMS) and the FBI, resulting in the death of Weaver’s son Sammy, his wife Vicki, and Deputy U.S. Marshal William Francis Degan.

The story also brings back memories of New Hampshire couple Ed and Elaine Brown, who were involved in a nine month standoff with armed law enforcement and feds as a result of their refusal to pay income tax. The Browns were later convicted of “plotting to kill federal agents” because of their refusal to surrender and were both given de facto life sentences.

In a series of YouTube videos, Cliven Bundy and his wife outline the background behind their decision to take a stand against the feds, arguing that their fight is a constitutionally-driven line in the sand to push back against the usurpation of big government.

 

Property Rights At Stake in the Florida Senate

 The latest threat to property rights, not to mention just bad government policy, is
SB 1576 entitled, “An act relating to springs.”

It is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Committee on Environmental Protection and Conservation Thursday, March 20, at 8 AM. You can see the bill by going to

www.flsenate.gov and inserting the bill number in the search engine.

Many, if not most, Floridians recognize the need to protect water quantity and quality. And, that certainly means protecting Florida’s springs and aquifer. Politicians know this and some want to join the stampede to pass “something” to “protect” springs. But, don’t be fooled…SB 1576 will not do that. Here’s why

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.

In the United States today, the Left-Right Paradigm is in reality a false paradigm that gives people the public appearance that there are two main opposing political groups, the Republicans and Democrats. These two major political parties, like magicians, cleverly give the illusion that they have basic differences in their national and world views, but in reality, both political parties share the common goals of staying in power, moving our country towards a socialist-style, big government, nanny state where a sizable majority of the people will be dependent upon elected and appointed government officials, from both parties, giving them government handouts or other assistance.
Although publically, the Republicans and Democrats seem to disagree on major and minor issues that divide the nation, they are really just using these issues to manipulate and rally certain segments of the public behind one side of the issue or the other, with the real purpose being and to get donations for the cause, whatever it may be. The basic idea behind this practice is to keep the American people divided so that each party can maintain control over those people within their party’s sphere of influence who think the way the party leaders do.

Minnesota bill HF 1833: STOP UN AGenda 21

________________________________________________________________________

Minnesota bill to stop Agenda 21

Neither Congress, nor any state legislature, has ever voted to approve any of the 47 U.N. Biosphere Reserves in the United States. (quote)Henry Lamb

On May 13, 2013, Minnesota representatives submitted a bill to end any involvement within or by the state with United Nations Agenda 21.  AG21, recognized across the country as a threat to private property rights and ownership.  AG21 calls for all land to be owned and controlled by the [state].  In this matter, the state referred to is the federal corporation that occupies The District of Criminals, known commonly as Washington D.C..

Several other states have already passed, or are in the process of passing anti-UN Agenda 21 legislation, recognizing this plan as a threat to the sovereignty and continuance of the United States.

You are a brand new Country!

President Richard Nixon issued Executive Order # 11647 on February 14, 1972, which created this new 31927_1thcountry. How did he conceive this reorganization plan? The United Nations passed a resolution that the United States must reorganize into 10 super regions and President Nixon complied by issuing this Executive Order. Obviously, this plan would not have survived the exposure that would have been necessary for Congress to have enacted this plan. Therefore, Nixon utilized the awesome, and often, illegal, power of the Executive Order to create this reorganization. EO 11647 

Get the United Nations out of the United States

IF this bill should pass, this could effectively halt the plans the United Nations has for converting portions of Minnesota into a “no human habitat” zone within the Wildlands and Biodiversity corridors scams they operate.   These corridors supposedly would restore the environment to a previously unknown condition of perfection.  We just have to get those pesky people to give up the land!  Once this is done, the lands sequestered under this foreign government program would be ripe for rip & ship policies that allow corporations to extract and ship as quickly as possible any resources on or within the land.  These resources would no longer be the property of the people of the state of Minnesota, neither public or private, and would instead be under the control of the United Nations to dispose of as they choose.

I can only imagine the care they would take to manage the land responsibly. (sarc)

Please give your support to these Representatives who have authored this bill.

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

Is this really the America we wanted?

In my opinion……

As someone long ago said, “If God wanted us to vote, He would have given us candidates worth voting for”.  I have no idea who might have originally said that, but I have concluded they were absolutely right.  I find dyingfreedom1myself wondering if God is not up in heaven somewhere laughing his holy behind off over the joke that is our political system.  Could be God is just so tired of us!

As a gentleman in the midst of his senior years, I find myself somewhat thankful for my advanced age.  I most likely will not live to see the end results of the traitorous conduct by all factions of the political system and, the absolute ruination of this once great country.  I do not believe my soul could stand it.  I did not serve my country to see her end this way; but end she will if we do not stop the cancer that is [federal government] from eating away at the core of our nation.

Watching the successive efforts by both Democrats and Republicans to deconstruct, to disassemble, to destroy, to bastardize, the very things that made us great, is heartbreaking to watch.  We elected these people in good faith and they have returned that good faith by being the most worthless, greedy and horrible people imaginable.  There is not, in my opinion, even one of the lot them worth another day in office.

What happened to you?

It is astonishing to me to see my own countrymen turning on one another.  It seems these days that all that is necessary to become a traitor to our country, to our communities, is to don a government uniform, or carry a government badge and set about terrorizing and harassing our fellow Americans.  There is no honor in what these men and women do; they have simply become drunk on the unfettered power, the ability to torment, torture, harass and terrorize their fellow citizens.  We can see that they enjoy what they are doing and for most of us the site is enough to sicken even the most hardened among us.

But we, as a country, go even further than this.  More

A Devil’s bargain: Pacific Southwest to become UN Bio-region

While we have been diverted with the governments plan to disarm us, that fine collection of corporatists, new world order advocates and United Nations servants have been busy using the federal register to implement United Nations Bio-regions within the United States.  While these land and resource thefts will be accompanied by some fluffy scripts about how they are saving the planet for future generations and how the federal government and the United Nations are the only ones able and willing to protect these vast resource rich areas, the fact is, the plans they have for these areas are have nothing to do with preservation or protection.  This is all about money and stealing from the states and their communities any and all resources that can be sold to corporations for massive profits.

Operating under the direction of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Forestry Service has begun to establish bio-regions in accordance with United Nations demands, focused now on vast areas of forests in the Pacific Southwest.  These are forests that the government has made off-limits to local timber industry’s except for favored contractors, including timber stands located on private property, decimating many local communities and economies. It has also initiated the closing off of public access roads.

Us-wild

All of this was done supposedly to protect natural resources and prevent exploitation of the forests.  Yet if you read the Federal Land Management policy, you can clearly see that preserving the forests or the land is not even an issue.  This is land and resource theft from the states themselves, to profit a federally created and unlawful agency that has no real authority to do any of the things it does do.

The Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1715, 1716), as amended, supplements the Weeks Act and General Exchange Acts (sec 20.1). 

Exchanges permit great flexibility to trade anything that is an interest in real property.  The Forest Service can trade land, timber, oil, gas, minerals, road rights-of-way, scenic easements or development rights, buildings, power line rights-of-way, and/or other real property rights, including leasehold interests.

Granite County Montana residents battle their own county government over implementation of Agenda 21

Abuse of Power Granite County part 1 and 2

A little background to understand as to what’s happening. The man putting the commission on the spot was in essence punished by these commissioners for questioning the process they used to implement district zoning, affecting his property. Basically not in accordance the wishes of the people per the Growth Policy that they voted for in 2006. As a result they SLAPP‘d him and seized his property. See The View From Montana.org for more info.

What is SLAPP?

A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.[1]

The typical SLAPP plaintiff does not normally expect to win the lawsuit. The plaintiff’s goals are accomplished if the defendant succumbs to fear, intimidation, mounting legal costs or simple exhaustion and abandons the criticism. A SLAPP may also intimidate others from participating in the debate. A SLAPP is often preceded by a legal threat. The difficulty, of course, is that plaintiffs do not present themselves to the Court admitting that their intent is to censor, intimidate or silence their critics. Hence, the difficulty in drafting SLAPP legislation, and in applying it, is to craft an approach which affords an early termination to invalid abusive suits, without denying a legitimate day in court to valid good faith claims.   More
