Dam Liars, Crooks and Killers



By Cassandra Anderson
September 9, 2011

Agenda 21 is the action plan to implement the UN Sustainable Development for total control and depopulation.  The Wildlands Project is the blueprint to scrape humans off of 50% of America’s landscape through “rewilding”.  Beneficial dams are being destroyed in the name or rewilding or restoration, using phony environmentalism to achieve these UN goals:

  • Human geography: herding humans into areas of water availability, as it   is essential for life
  • Depopulation: when water is cut off from farmers, this affects the food   supply
  • Water rights: massive water rights re-allocation hangs in the balance (the Colorado River may be up for grabs)
  • Hydro power dam destruction: collapse of energy infrastructure to return to a primitive existence
  • Private property: land use & value are drastically changed when property is turned into a swamp or desert
  • Federal control: centralized control over resources follows UN policy
  • Smart Grid: overwhelming and centralized control that is inefficient and open to sabotage

A Clean Water Fallacy
Don Parmeter

(498 words)

     There are several disturbing aspects about H.R. 5088, America’s Commitment to Clean Water Act, authored by Minnesota Congressman James Oberstar and introduced in April.
There’s the bill itself, arguably the biggest federal power grab in American history, given the proposed change in language to the 1972 federal Clean Water Act.  Mr. Oberstar’s bill would replace the term ‘Navigable’ with ‘Waters of the U.S.,’ which would include: all waters currently used, used in the past, or susceptible to use in future commerce; all interstate and international waters; and all other waters and their tributaries, including intrastate lakes, rivers, streams, mudflats, sandflats, wetlands, ponds, meadows and sloughs.

Imagine you are among the forth generation who have lived, hunted, farmed, and raised children on six hundred acres in any state, and now the wells on YOUR land that have provided life giving water to you and your ancestors belong to the world and are controlled by the state.

If you are one of the bean heads that believe it should be that way, please stop reading here.

As for me, I am going to keep trying to convince people to fight this kind of evil until the jackbooted grunts they send after me stomp out my life. Life without freedom is not worth living.

This past week was a busy one in New York City’s United Nations building. Besides the speeches by Iran’s president and the U.S. president, there were meetings and conferences regarding the future of planet earth. While all eyes were on the speeches and pomp and circumstance of world leaders, the denizens of U.S. newsrooms ignored what one observer termed “The Mother of All Power Grabs.”

The United Nations General Assembly is considering a historic resolution recognizing the human right to “safe and clean drinking water and sanitation” initiated by the Bolivian government. Other UN members have been consulted on the resolution and the final text is expected to be presented to the President of the General Assembly.

In a letter sent today to all UN Ambassadors and permanent missions, global water advocate and Blue Planet Project founder Maude Barlow urges a decisive and swift passage of the resolution. 

“This would be one of the most important things the UN has done since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” says Barlow, who chairs the boards of the Council of Canadians and Washington-based Food and Water Watch. In 2008/2009, Barlow served as Senior Advisor on Water to the 63rd President of the UN General Assembly.  More

Live Link: Liberty Matters



    Liberty Matters | Sept 1, 2010 –

    The final weeks of the 2010 second session of the 111th Congress could be the most dangerous in our history.  In view of the current outlook for mid-term elections, this may be the last chance Senator Reid has to push through Cap ‘n Trade, the Clean Water Restoration Act, the Wildlife Corridors Act, the CLEAR Act, and Food Health bills that will strangle the farming industry. 

    The Senate will reconvene September 13th and adjourn October 8th.  They return after the election recess on November 15th and work until the week of Thanksgiving.  Then work continues in December.  While these bills can be brought up any time during the critical days ahead, our property rights and interests are most vulnerable during the sessions following election. 

    This issue of Liberty Matters has been prepared to give you a heads up on the key anti-private property bills we expect to come up for passage during the final quarter of this critical year.

Botswana Bushmen

By Barbara H. Peterson

Farm Wars

This is Agenda 21 in action, folks. Bushmen are being driven off their land because “the Bushmen’s presence in the reserve is not compatible with preserving wildlife and that living in such harsh conditions offers few prospects.” Previously, “another court allowed the Bushmen to return to desert-like homelands where diamond mining claims and a new luxury tourist lodge led to their eviction by the government.”

So here it is in a nutshell:

Indigenous people are being driven off their land through water deprivation under the pretext of wildlife conservation. In the meantime, their water and land are being used for things like luxury tourist lodges and diamond mining. After all, the rich need to have their diamonds and be surrounded by wildlife without the inconvenient sight of the lower order of people of which you and I are a part.

It happened to the Bushmen, and it is beginning to happen to us with water privatization.  More

Senator Harry Reid is working hard – but for whom?

“Scientists warned that as the Great Basin’s groundwater is drained, desert springs and seeps will dry up, farms and ranches will wither away, and plants and wildlife will die off.  The aquifer, which took millennia to fill, will run out.”


If you read the article “The Mining of Our Aquifers” you may have wondered how the Mining Law of 1872 could be the most current law to regulate the mining industry and its disastrous effects on our aquifers and land. 

According to the article “Harry Reid, Gold Member: Is our Senator in bed with America’s worst polluter?” by Josh Harkinson, “Reid has been instrumental in blocking efforts to reform the archaic General Mining Law of 1872, a legal blank check that has allowed miners to take an estimated $408 billion worth of gold and other hard rock minerals from public lands without paying a single cent in royalties – ever.  More

Collecting rainwater now illegal in many states as Big Government claims ownership over our water


(NaturalNews) Many of the freedoms we enjoy here in the U.S. are quickly eroding as the nation transforms from the land of the free into the land of the enslaved, but what I’m about to share with you takes the assault on our freedoms to a whole new level. You may not be aware of this, but many Western states, including Utah, Washington and Colorado, have long outlawed individuals from collecting rainwater on their own properties because, according to officials, that rain belongs to someone else.

As bizarre as it sounds, laws restricting property owners from “diverting” water that falls on their own homes and land have been on the books for quite some time in many Western states. Only recently, as droughts and renewed interest in water conservation methods have become more common, have individuals and business owners started butting heads with law enforcement over the practice of collecting rainwater for personal use.

Check out this:

a news report out of Salt Lake City, Utah, about the issue. It’s illegal in Utah to divert rainwater without a valid water right, and Mark Miller of Mark Miller Toyota, found this out the hard way.

California: Water Board Chooses New Delta Watermaster



by Dan Bacher

The last thing that the California Delta needs is a new bureaucrat to further Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s plans to build a peripheral canal and new dams, but that’s exactly what we now have.

The five members of the State Water Resources Control Board recently chose attorney Craig M. Wilson to serve in the newly created Delta Watermaster position – and representives of environmental groups and California Indian Tribes weren’t impressed.

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Reform Act of 2009, part of the legislative path to the peripheral canal that was rammed through the Legislature by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger last November, requires the State Water Board to appoint a “Delta Watermaster.” The Delta Watermaster has the authority to monitor, report and take enforcement actions on the Delta.

Opposition Grows for California Roundup of 2,500 Wild Mustangs and Burros

“Despite growing public outrage over BLM’s continuing massive roundups, which condemn wild horses to a life of confinement at taxpayer expense, BLM is expected to select alternative A (removing the maximum number of wild horses and burros) while allowing thousands of head of livestock to dominant the range. “
For Immediate Release:
Opposition Grows for California Roundup of 2,500 Wild Mustangs and Burros
Northern CA Twin Peaks herd is targeted for a destructive multi-million dollar summer roundup
San Francisco, CA (July 7, 2010)—The Cloud Foundation opposes and is calling for a stop to the proposed roundup of over 2,500 mustangs and burros from one of the last viable herds in California. To avoid conflicting with deer hunting season, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) plans to unleash contracted helicopters in the August heat to round up 2,500 mustangs and burros, including their young foals, from the Twin Peaks Range near Susanville. Vastly outnumbered by thousands of corporate-owned destructive livestock, the public’s wild horses and burros are the BLM’s scapegoats for damage on the range. Over 2,000 are now slated for removal despite healthy range conditions and an outdated census.  More

Water theft and the beginning of the end of independent and family cattle ranching



Marti Oakley (c)copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved


Reports are coming in from across the country, mostly from the 14 Western States where cattle ranching is a way of life, of water being diverted to other areas or regions and natural waterways being altered to allow the collection of water to be sold on the commodities markets depriving cattle ranchers of the much needed water for their herds.

While many a cattleman (not all) in the west are cheering the unlawful herding and slaughter of wild horses and burros believing that ending the existence of these animals would somehow increase their access to below fair market value grazing permits, a wholly separate plan was being put in place by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).  Now, don’t get too excited.  You’ll probably still get some really, really cheap grazing permits….you just won’t be able to afford the water necessary for your herds without selling off a couple of your kids or grandkids.  And no guarantees are made as to the quality of water you will have access to.

BLM, in collusion with municipalities, multi-national corporations and other stakeholders have been systematically laying claim to any and all water supplies: even what is contained in underground aquifers.  What this means to you is this:  Even if water appears on your land naturally, having come from a river, stream or aquifer now owned by these corporate stakeholders, you are committing theft.  They own the water and all rights to it.  The fact that it shows up on your land and always has is now a moot point.  More

Another Helicopter Wild Horse Stampede of Death Coming to a Desert Near YOU!

4.)    Young horses run until their feet fell off

10.)   No accountability

Well warm up the BBQ pit and break out the beer because the ole BLM is about to fire off a rerun of the death and destruction and hundreds of native wild horses are now doomed.  Gotta love that BLM, they just issued a statement that they know helicopters kill wild horses and what do they plan on using to round up the horses?  The same helicopter contractor that is responsible for running horses to death at the last roundup.  Craig Downer just verified that destructive private cattle out number the wild horses by a minimum of 10 to 1 at the proposed roundup location so what is the helicopter going to stampede; the wild horses, of course.  Kinda makes ya wonder about those boys, doesn’t it?

We all know that the BLM can’t count, they have proven that with their bogus numbers both before and after their botched roundups.  We all know that they lie and actually hire professionals to teach them how to do so with style.  Hell, look at their last advisory meeting; slick, cool and preaching transparency while they are castrating and killing off the last seed of the Calico herd.

Pony up, Cattlemen!



By Debbie Coffey Copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved


When I first heard the term “grazing lease” I assumed the lease was for grazing.

After hearing that the Bureau of Land Management will be rounding up the wild horses in the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area (California and Nevada) because there’s not enough water for them, I looked at the BLM Eagle Lake (California) Field Office website and noticed the projects they had listed.

I was surprised to see grazing lease transfers. You can transfer (give) your grazing lease to somebody else, and then THEY can transfer (give) it to somebody else. However, the “somebodys” aren’t always people or ranches.

I saw a couple of ranches like 3-Dot Ranch and 5-Dot Land & Cattle, then (right when I thought I was seeing spots before my eyes) I happened to see Project number CA-350-2009-33 for the North Fort Sage Allotment and Winter Range, NV. This was a grazing lease transfer from V&B Liability to Vidler LLC to Jared Brackenbury (whose name was misspelled). I couldn’t find any information about V&B Liability, but it sounds like it might be an insurance company.

Why would an insurance company need a grazing permit? Anyhow, whoever they are, they transferred the grazing permit to Vidler LLC, which is Vidler Water Company.

George Knapp of www.8newsnow.com wrote of Vidler Water Company “the huge operation they’ve put together in western states, including Nevada, has come to rival entire governments, both in expertise and resources.” More

S 787 Federal Water Theft

potholeWater is necessary for sustaining life as well as growing food, and should not be something that we are forced to pay for or go without. S 787, introduced by Senator Russ Feingold, attempts to make all waters that fall from the sky onto our land property of the Federal Government. This is unnacceptable.

Let me put it another, more direct way. If water falls out of the sky and into a pool of water on my property, I’ll be damned if I am going to pay the Feds, Corp USA, one red cent to drink it. Do you hear that Senator Feingold? You can take your S 787 and shove it! READ MORE…

Water Restoration Act is anything But…


By: Marti Oakley (c)copyright 2009

Tell a Friend 

The Water Restoration Act of 2007, brought to you by Jim Oberstar of Minnesota, along with others, gives the federal government complete control over every waterway, river, stream, lake, aquifer, creek, slew, swamp, underground spring and even the rain that runs off your roof.  Why?  Well to better protect you from polluters and to ensure water safety, and of course “national security”. 


Here’s the real deal.  Oil which has been deemed the worlds most valuable commodity (remember that word) is quickly being replaced by water.  Water is the new “gold”.  Under the Public Trust doctrine, the government is prohibited from converting something such as water (a human right…we can’t live without it) to a commodity.  It must remain in a public trust, meaning that it is so important to our survival that it should never be subjected to markets, trading or private interests.  In other words, it should never be reclassified as a commodity.  But this Act lays the groundwork for removing from the Public Trust this basic human right which is a necessity, and will facilitate it being reclassified a “needed commodity”.  Enter the multi-national corporations. 


What is under way is the effort to classify water as a commodity and not a right. All of this actually started with NAFTA and then CAFTA.  Both agreements, which are not enforceable as they are both unconstitutional have been parts of a puzzle that until recently seemed not to make any sense at all.  Both are focused on giving multinational corporations the right to lay claim to food production whether it is agriculture or animal ranching, to force out family farms, to patent their new “frankenseeds” and put the resulting GMO food on our grocery shelves without labeling the foods as altered.


The corporations can now sue the government (and have) if it acts in any way to prevent it from making profits it believes it is entitled to.  This ability to sue for impaired profit making can be the result of environmental regulations, of Federal laws which may prevent the corporations from hiring illegal workers, or issues of eminent domain in which an individuals’ land stands in the way of corporate profiteering and the courts have not acted to protect the interests of the corporation.  The corporation then claims “trade illegal” provisions of NAFTA and CAFTA and our federal laws and regulations are put aside, along with property rights.


All that was left to capture from the public was the water supply.  CAFTA goes a long way in establishing the privatization of water supplies, including in-land navigated waters and the right to use and access the water supplies.


If the federal government is not able to gain total control of all water from whatever source, it is highly unlikely that water can be taken from the status of Public Trust and moved to one of a commodity, which is exactly what the Water Restoration Act of 2007 will enable. 


If CAFTA protections and provisions for corporations and the provisions within CAFTA that put the rights of investors above those of the individual, or human rights, cannot come into play, it will be nearly impossible to expose our water supply to global markets. CAFTA’s primary aim is to protect and promote investors regardless of the cost to individuals or communities. 


Water is not only a basic human right, but also a natural resource.  Inland states like Minnesota have Public Trust Laws (in addition to federal doctrine) which maintain the use of waterways for drinking and for recreation purposes.  Every lake here has public water access due to the Public Trust which everyone contributes to in one way or another.  No one can claim land at the bottom of a lake……its commonly held.  No one can claim private ownership of lake fish stocks, or other natural resources resulting from the lake’s existence.  This applies to rivers also, including the Mississippi which runs through the state.


The Water Restoration Act of 2007 would federalize all inland and coastal waters from any source.  This act is needed to set the stage for the privatization guaranteed to corporations under CAFTA and would effectively convert the entire water supply from any source into a commodity. 


As it is, any corporate agriculture business operating in any area is allowed to bypass water treatment plants, sewage treatment and the associated costs and to tap directly into underground aquifers even at the cost of depleting the water supply to the surrounding communities.  GMO seeds, especially “traitor” seeds require as much as three times the normal amount of water to activate and to grow, but any efforts to limit use or regulate disposal even by monetary assessment have been unsuccessful.  The corporate rights now exceed that of the individual or community.  CAFTA clearly states repeatedly that “investor protections” must be a priority.


Using the NAFTA provisions, along with even more detrimental CAFTA provisions, the World Bank along with the United Nations are active in the effort to convert the worlds’ water supply into a commodity to be controlled by private investors via global trade and investment agreements.  If these efforts are successful, water will no longer be a community or individual right and resource necessary to maintain life, but a globally traded commodity subject to markets and your ability to pay.


The World Trade organization in collusion with provisions of NAFTA,  have been instrumental in converting water into a tradable commodity and as such subject to international trade policies which favor no one but the giant corporations.  In each instance of corporations attempting to overturn domestic environmental laws or regulations, the laws have been rendered null using the “trade illegal” provisions of both NAFTA and CAFTA which declare that the right of the corporation cannot be superseded or infringed upon by laws or regulations that hinder the amount of profit they estimate can be attained.


The World Bank already has established a system whereby credit or loans will not be issued to Third World countries and even less stressed countries, unless they agree to allow foreign investors access to privatize the water supply.  In Bolivia this resulted in mass demonstrations that finally forced out a subsidiary of Bechtel that had privatized the water supply, increased costs three-fold minimally, dispensed with upkeep and left ¼ of the rural homes without access to water. 


England has privatized their water system and costs rose 45% overnight, all but skeleton crews remained of the maintenance sector and the quality of water has dropped significantly. 


In one Canadian town several people became ill and one died from an ecoli contamination in the water supply.  This occurred after the supply had been privatized, and the owner of the water supply knew of the contamination.  The public was never notified until after people became ill.


In March of 2000 at the Hague, a meeting occurred where water executives stated that as long as water was coming out of the tap the public had no right to any information as to how it got there….. Or its quality.

Ministerial Declaration of The Hague on Water Security in the 21st Century


GWP – Library



Here in the States, private investors have in some places succeeded in taking over community water supplies, in other places the communities have fought back against the sale of publicly held supplies realizing that this most important element of human survival should never be under the control of private corporations whose one and only duty is to make a profit for investors. 


As water has historically been deemed a human right and necessity, so much so that the Public Trust Doctrine was put on paper, how could anyone in good conscience believe water is, or promote water as, a tradable commodity?  How can there be so many callous and greedy individuals running around out there who would willingly see another human  thirst to death just so they can make a buck?  Apparently there are many.  


The Water Restoration Act 2007 relies heavily on promotion based on protecting the water supply from pollution, from terrorists, and of course “national security”.  The truth is it has nothing to do with any of these things.  The WRA will allow unfettered pollution with no recourse for communities or individuals and “trade illegal” treatment of local and state laws.  Before the entire water supply can be sold off to private interests the federal government must gain control of the entire water system. This is what the WRA will do.


This Act would be more aptly titled “The Water Confiscation Act” as this is exactly what is intended.  All it is set to do is to strike down the Public Trust Doctrine and facilitate the conversion of water from a basic human right into a commodity.  The only threat to “national security” here is from the government and the massive corporations who are behind it. 


I guess we shouldn’t be surprised by any of this.  After all, the Security & Prosperity Partnership refers to people as “human capital”.  I wonder how long it will be before they refer to us as a “needed commodity” and trade and sell us on the global market.


Control the food, control the water and you control the people.   I believe it was Henry Kissinger who first made this observation when speaking about the importance of depopulation through the use of eugenics.  Obviously good old Henry realized that overtaking the food and water supplies would go a long way in deciding who had a right to life.
