Public disclosure Stillaguamish and Grays River…

Just like the bureaucrats to know of a problem and purposely not fix it. But of course they did the proper studies and they announced the problem. They even told the public about the study. A meeting was held and at the meeting it was announced that a geomorphologist accomplished his study and his finding where that something will happen from the problem. The NGO’s and GO’s do this all of the time.

Now that I have confused you enough or given you an enigma let me tell you a story that will help put all these statements and questions into perspective.

First point of interest all someone must do is a report to the public. Like for instance to make something like a prenuptial agreement legal, activate the legality of the document you must publish it. Make it publicly disclosed.

On any study, done by public funds (tax payer dollars), the study must be published and disclosed to the public.

Now we come to the enigma. Certainly meetings are held to announce that the study has been accomplished and can be found on this or that website or you can pay to have it sent to you. Sounds good so far doesn’t it?

Well, bear with me, a little. When we were in our last months in the Grays River Valley, a study was done by a Geomorphologist. The purpose of the study according to the people living in the valley(those that were paying attention) was to define how the river will live.  The study was done in seeking solutions to the severe flooding that was taking place in the valley. I attended the meeting that announced the Geomorphologist findings.

The Geomorphologist took me aside at the conclusion of the presentation and told me his findings on the Grays River. He announced to me that the river will be “straightened out.” I do not know why he told me unless it was because I wrote for the local paper. I never put this in the local paper. If the river were to straightened out it would take out some homes and severely reduce the property of others. The flooding that will take place when the river does do this will be devastating. It would be okay to those in the know tho because a few homes are okay. It meets the greater good of restoring the salmon to the river. The restoration of salmon habitat is the most important factor. It does not really matter to the “save the whatever groups”. If it meets the need then it was needed to take out some homes.

As long as the report is published somewhere it absolves them of responsibility. After all they “told the public”. Even if the publication is obscure and unreadable with convoluted terms, nothing has to be straight forward.

Urban development is the biggest and worst threat to salmon recovery. This has been clearly stated in all  “salmon recovery plans” across the nation. All means to convince land owners that conservation is the key to sustainable development.

What they won’t tell you is that natural disasters work well in their plans. They have complete plausible deniability when a disaster takes place.

I recommend to anyone who wants to get to the bottom of this disaster that you research what land has been put into perpetuity for stewardship by an eco group.?

Watch out Montanans here it comes…takings

The recent controversy over the sage grouse. Yes Montana will finally feel the effects of takings. Taking land. Just like the Spotted owl and the salmon, all land that even shows an inkling of evidence, that the bird has been or is on your land, will make your land a target to take. I know first hand how the NGO’s will take this information and run with it, leaving you, the land owner, holding the bag. These organizations will use the policies against any land owner to bully, shove and kick you off of your land in order to accomplish the “greater good”.

If you are a nominal rancher/farmer you are the first target. As I said before the nominal ranch/farm is one that is under 100 acres. The environmental groups like: The Nature conservancy, The Columbia Land Trust,Wild Rockies Alliance, American Wild Lands, Clark Fork Coalitions, Wild Rockies, Five Valleys Land Trust, Montana Land Reliance, and many others. These organizations started out with good intentions yet the ultimate goal is to tell people what they can and cannot do on their own land. If you, as a land owner walk to your own drum, they will dog you and fight you with everything they have at their disposal until you give in. These organizations fight dirty, they will value you off your land (one way) they will tax you off your land (two) or they will policy and fine you off your land.

Yes these types of policies will cost you and cost you dearly.

The ultimate goal is to take everyone but the real, real big boys off the land. The world wide agenda. “Get them off their land” one way or another.

If you the land owner don’t think this will happen, go ahead jump in bed with them, Don’t complain when they come and tell you that your 200 head of cattle cannot graze on the federal land anymore. “After all you want to save the sage grouse habitat don’t you?” If this is not enough of a warning to you then you need to read principle 6, 7 and 8 of Agenda 21 from the UN Earth Summit in RIO http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_Declaration_on_Environment_and_Development

Agenda 21 is  the world organization method of moving people from their land in order for sustainable development. After all who gives a hoot about lifestyles and generational ownership, history, facts and the American way of life, as long as what they do is in line with the UN charter of sustainable development, sustainable resources, sustainable agriculture,sustainable biology, sustainable science, anything that meats the needs of Agenda 21

Many farmers and ranchers have had knowledge of how best to take care of the land, passed on to them by their previous generations. The different government and non government organizations need to listen to them. The one thing that keeps them from listening is the generational knowledge is never in the textbooks and it is not on the sustainable development lists. The science is different now.? Really, is it? Maybe with all the new technology  and junk science on global warming and climate change it is different but does it really work? Ask yourself what really works?

The beginning of the nightmare on Grays River…

We had been on the farm for a couple of years and were looking at drowning under doctor bills. My husband and I started talking about contacting the environmental groups about selling the development rights to our 60 acres.  To do so we would have to contact any ecology group to see if they would be interested.

I was very reluctant to do so. I had a father that worked in facilities at Boeing and knew all the hoops they had to jump thru to acquire a piece of property . In some cases they would buy a piece and find out that the ecology (save the…now bunch) would tie up the property in litigation. The ecology groups would not allow building due to a Heron nesting, or an eagle feeding or a duck squatting or a horse flying or some other thing or another that might or might not be on the endangered list. I had followed the tree huggers, the mother earthers, the hippie throw backs, the recycle fanatics and all the rest. Doing their sit ins or tree hanging or protesting just to protest (yeah man we’re livin’ the dream), the property destruction, Eco-terrorism and  whatever else they do. I had also followed the whole Global warming, ecology now, greenhouse gas threat,  the coming ice age, the endangered species spotted owl. Of course the country forgot about the spotted owl for a time, because of global warming, but the spotted owl is back in the news. Looks like the experts think killing off another species of owl will save the spotted owl. This is the thinking of the ever elite ecologist, biologist, geomorphologist and any other ‘ologist on the band wagon for saving the earth from what? The HUMAN!

Little did I know when we found the farm we were buying right in the middle of spotted owl country.
