News from Klamath National Forest on new fires

Federal gov & land grabs, FIRES, Forestry & USFS

July 23, 2014

Yreka, CA- A storm moved across the area last night and the western portion of the Klamath National Forest and Siskiyou County received a significant amount of lightning — nearly 600 down strikes recorded. As of early this morning the lightning had resulted in at least 10 new fires on the Happy Camp Oak Knoll and Salmon Scott Ranger Districts. CAL FIRE was also impacted by these storms and has reported 3 small fires in the Quartz Valley area, that are all now contained.

Forest Service and CAL FIRE resources are available and responding. The Klamath National Forest has also brought in five additional fire engines and four handcrews from other areas in anticipation of the increased fire activity on the Forest.

Due to the extreme drought conditions that exist throughout the area, fuels are very receptive to fires started by lightning. Even with some areas getting a good wetting rain, the fuels dry out quickly and a small smoldering fire can quickly grow to a major fire.

Fire staff will continue to monitor the landscape for any additional fires that may show today or over the next few days.

Sutter County is 6th to join Jefferson movement

JEFFERSON DECLARATION

“Time to roar!”

By Pastor Dave Bryan Church of Glad Tidings Sutter County

“Hooray for the Sups!”

This past Tuesday, many of us were very encouraged by the hearty response of our Sutter County Board of Supervisors, who – having heard “the voice of the people” – voted unanimously in favor of supporting the Jefferson Declaration Movement in the North State!

I applaud their courageous leadership, and thank God that our leaders are not content with the status quo!

James Gallagher led the charge, echoing the grievances of “the people” with the current state of affairs in California, and reiterating the lack of true representative “voice” of the northern counties in any current affairs of state.

Chairman Stan Cleveland supported the Jefferson effort from the beginning, and guided the board toward the adoption of a Resolution of Support that incorporated the concern of Jim Whiteaker, who championed the cause of true representative government by insisting that the adopted resolution clearly and specifically state that any final decision regarding the inclusion of the County of Sutter in a newly formed state would rest in the hands of the citizenship by way of voter endorsement.

Supervisor Larry Munger showed his genuine eagerness to gain a clearer understanding of the pertinent details of the Jefferson movement, after which he yielded his hearty support to the effort.

District One’s Ron Sullenger, while expressing his personal doubts about the likelihood of the effort’s eventual success, nonetheless yielded his support to the “Jeffersonians,” eventually conceding that – despite his personal lack of faith, he did recognize the legitimacy of their concerns and the nobility of their objectives.

All said, our Supervisor’s should be heartily commended for their leadership in the matter! Hooray for them!

What Drought? Govt. Doesn’t Live By Drought Rules

If 80 percent of California is in extreme drought, as the Los Angeles Times just reported, where is the data and evidence?
City and county governments are still running sprinklers and wasting water as though there is no drought, yet threatening and even imposing penalties on citizens who violate unclear water policies.

The State Water Resources Control Board adopted new drought policy and regulations to give local agencies the authority to fine water wasters up to $500 a day.
Who are these board members, comfortable with imposing fines on citizens?
Water Board member Dorene D’Adamo, was also on the California Air Resources Board, since 1999, until 2013.
Board member, Frances Spivey-Weber was a director of international programs for the National Audubon Society, and previously a legislative assistant for the Animal Welfare Institute.
Chairwoman Felicia Marcus was the Western Director for the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Steven Moore served on the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Board from 2008-2012 and held staff positions at that Regional Water Board over 14 years, and worked 10 years as an engineering consultant on a wide variety of water infrastructure projects, stream and wetland restoration projects, and Environmental Impact Reports throughout California.
Tam Doduc most recently served as Deputy Secretary at Cal/EPA, where she directed the agency’s environmental justice and external scientific peer review activities.
National Weather Service “data?”
The most recent National Weather Service Drought Monitor Update claims 81 percent of California in the category of extreme drought or worse, up from 78 percent.
A strange “map” also claims “drought conditions” worsened in parts of Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties, while never acknowledging that these parts of the state are actually considered desert. “The new data comes as officials are getting tough on water wasters,” the Los Angeles Times reported. Did the data follow the new penalties?

Weather helps firefighters battling Washington state blaze

Calmer winds and cooler temperatures helped firefighters go on the offensive Monday against a destructive wildfire that has charred hundreds of square miles in Washington state and is the largest in state history.

The Carlton Complex of fires in north-central Washington had burned about 379 square miles, fire spokesman Andrew Sanbri said Monday. That would make it the largest wildfire in the state since record-keeping started.

“There is optimism in the air, but we don’t want to give the impression that all is good,” Sanbri said. “Things are improving.”

The fire was just 2 percent contained Monday.

Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers was also encouraged.

“Right now there’s honestly no wind,” Rogers said Monday night, noting that rising evening winds complicated earlier firefighting efforts. “I’m hoping this is helping.”

Fire crews quickly attacked a new fire east of Tonasket on Monday, Rogers said. A half-dozen homes were briefly evacuated, but the fire burned past them with no destruction.

Residents of a couple of dozen additional rural homes were told to leave Monday, but Rogers said that was just a precaution.

Cooler temperatures and higher humidity continue to be in the forecast, but the area is also on “lightning watch” Tuesday through Thursday. “We don’t need any more lightning,” Rogers said.

At 243,000 acres, the Carlton Complex was larger than the Yacolt Burn, which consumed 238,920 acres in southwestern Washington in 1902 and was the largest recorded forest fire in state history, according to HistoryLink.org, an online resource of Washington state history. The Yacolt Burn killed 38 people.

Rogers has estimated that 150 homes have been destroyed already, but he suspected that number could rise. The fire is being blamed for one death.

Firefighters on Monday had planned to burn fuel on the north side of the fire to help build a fire line, but that operation was canceled, fire spokesman Don Carpenter said.

Firefighters were hampered by the loss of electricity in the area due to downed power lines and poles, which hurt communications. There was no estimate on when utilities would be restored.

The forecast for Monday and Tuesday called for lighter winds and lower temperatures, said Spokane-based National Weather Service meteorologist Greg Koch.

Then on Wednesday a vigorous front is expected to cover Washington, bringing rain to much of the state. But it will also bring lightning, Koch added.

“We may get some rain where we need it, but we may also experience some lightning that could cause some new ignitions,” he said.

The fire has created smoky conditions and reduced air quality in much of eastern Washington and northern Idaho.

One man died of an apparent heart attack while fighting the fire near his home, Rogers said.

Rob Koczewski, 67, was stricken on Saturday while he and his wife were hauling water and digging fire lines near their home. Koczewski was a retired Washington State Patrol trooper and U.S. Marine, Rogers said.

There are more than 1,600 firefighters battling the flames, assisted by more than 100 fire engines, helicopters dropping buckets of water and planes spreading flame retardant, Sanbri said.

Many towns in the scenic Methow Valley remain without power and have limited landline and cellphone service. Fully restoring power to the area could take weeks, Okanogan County Public Utility District officials told KREM.

More than 100 Washington National Guard soldiers are supporting state Department of Natural Resources firefighters, state spokesman Mark Clemens said Monday. National Guard helicopters have dropped more than 500,000 gallons of water on the fires.

Federal appeals court deals blow to Obama health law

Federal gov & land grabs, Lawsuits

Published: Tuesday, Jul. 22, 2014 – 7:48 am

Last Modified: Tuesday, Jul. 22, 2014 – 7:57 am

A federal appeals court has delivered a serious setback to President Barack Obama’s health care law, potentially derailing subsidies for many low- and middle-income people who have bought policies.

If upheld, the decision could mean premium increases for more than half of the 8 million Americans who purchased taxpayer-subsidized insurance under the law.

It affects consumers who purchased their coverage through the federal insurance marketplace — or exchange— that serves 36 states.

A three-judge panel in Washington ruled 2-1 that the law, as written, only allows insurance subsidies in states that have set up their own exchanges. That invalidated an Internal Revenue Service regulation that allowed subsidies in all 50 states.

News in Jefferson Country from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: Recently, local rancher Richard Marshal attended a meeting of the Auburn Dam Council down by Sacramento and learned that the council supports more water storage throughout the state including keeping the Klamath Dams in place.

“The Auburn Dam Council supports the water storage and flood control managed by the Klamath dams,” said Marshall, who also heard Congressman Tom McClintock speak about the most recent Task Force demanding removal of the Klamath dams. McClintock discussed Oregon Senator Ron Wyden’s Task Force that is pushing for the destruction of the Klamath dams; and McClintock said Wyden will never find enough federal funds to pay for Klamath dam removal.

McClintock and California District 1 Congressman Doug LaMalfa sit on the House Natural Resources Committee and both have said that no funding will be coming from the House of Representatives to the Senate for Klamath dam removal. It is the House that appropriates monies, so Wyden’s U.S. Senate Bill will likely be left sitting high and dry.

Both California Congressmen are strongly opposed to wasting money on Klamath dam removal.

Siskiyou County citizens voted in 2010 that they were against Klamath dam removal. The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors have sent letters to Washington D.C. to Wyden’s Task Force and the House Natural Resources Committee showing significant science and reasons the well-maintained hydro-electric Klamath dams benefit the Klamath River Basin.

With the vocal good support for keeping the dams, Marshall was also pleased to hear that the Auburn Dam Council is also supporting saving the Klamath dams. “California needs more reservoirs for water storage, not less,” said Marshall.

Action Alert!!!

Liberty is not free

This action alert comes to us from Orlean Koehle. See below then take action:
Please call our two Senators, Boxer and Feinstein, and urge them to vote no on this UN treaty, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) . The vote will be next Tuesday. This e-mail gives a script of ideas of what to say when you call.
July 17, 2014
Senate Committee Schedules CRPD Vote – Call Monday!
Dear Champion of Parental Rights,
The U.S. Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee will vote on the dangerous UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on Tuesday, July 22.
Now is the time to let the Senate hear loud and clear that Americans are firmly opposed to surrendering our sovereignty, parental rights, and the rights of people with disabilities to unelected, unaccountable UN bureaucrats. Please call and email your two U.S. senators right now and urge them to reject the CRPD.
We need every single parent and concerned citizen to make their voice heard. Bad bills can be repealed, but once a treaty is ratified there is no going back.
You can reach your senators by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121, or find their direct office line by clicking on your state at parentalrights.org/states

Your message can be as simple as the following:
“I urge you to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental care of children with disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect Americans with disabilities. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families by giving bureaucrats the power to decide what is in the best interests of a child with disabilities, not the child’s parents.”
We do not have the votes to stop the CRPD in the Foreign Relations Committee. That is why we urge you to call not only the senators on the Committee, but also your own two senators. Please call even if your senator supports the treaty, or even if he or she opposes it. Every senator needs to hear from us. The following senators are on the Foreign Relations Committee:
Democrats Republicans
Robert Menendez (NJ): (202) 224-4744
Bob Corker (TN) (202) 224-3344

Barbara Boxer (CA): (202) 224-3553
Ron Johnson (WI) (202) 224-5323

Benjamin L. Cardin (MD): (202) 224-4524
James E. Risch (ID) (202) 224-2752

Tom Udall (NM): (202) 224-6621
Jeff Flake (AZ) (202) 224-4521

Edward Markey (MA): (202) 224-2742
John McCain (AZ) (202) 224-2235

Chris Murphy (CT): (202) 224-4041
John Barrasso (WI) (202) 224-6441
Tim Kaine (VA): (202) 224-4024 Rand Paul (KY) (202) 224-4343
Jeanne Shaheen (NH): (202) 224-2841 Marco Rubio (FL) (202) 224-3041
Christopher Coons (DE): (202) 224-5042
Richard J. Durbin (IL): (202) 224-2152
ParentalRights.org opposes the CRPD because it says “in all actions concerning children with disabilities, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.” If ratified by the Senate, government officials could use this section to override parents’ decisions for their child with a disability.

Other provisions of the CRPD promote abortion, require a national registry of all children with disabilities, and threaten U.S. sovereignty and our fundamental right to govern ourselves. The term “disability,” however, is not defined. Our nation already has the best laws in the world to protect Americans with disabilities, and we use our leadership and foreign aid overseas to urge nations to protect their own citizens with disabilities. This treaty is unnecessary and will weaken U.S. leadership by replacing our nation’s proven record on disability rights with UN “leadership.”

Some senate staff may argue that the CRPD isn’t dangerous because it can be amended with Reservations, Understandings, and Declarations (“RUDs”). No one has seen the proposed RUDs yet, so we don’t even know if they are well-written. But more importantly, RUDs are fatally flawed. The CRPD itself says in Article 46, “Reservations incompatible with the object and purpose of the present Convention shall not be permitted.” Who decides? The UN. International law experts have made the same arguments, and we cannot trust our freedom to five justices on the Supreme Court making the right ruling. In addition, a future Senate could withdraw RUDs.

Some senate staff may also argue that the recent Supreme Court ruling in Bond v. United States addresses our concerns. I answered this argument on HSLDA’s site here. Bond was an incredibly narrow ruling, and it never addressed the treaty power issue. In fact, the concurring opinions by Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito prove that our concerns about UN treaties are completely justified.

The good news is that your action defeated the CRPD in 2012. By the grace of God, we can do it again. Please call right now and please also forward this email to your friends. You can visit parentalrights.org/crpd to learn more about the CRPD.

EPA proposed rule April 21, 2014

RE: EPA-HQ-OW-2011-0880
Proposed Rule Issued April 21, 2014

By Elaine Willman

INTRODUCTION: Nothing better illustrates the current administration’s intentional thumb-in-the-eye to our Judicial and Legislative branches of government than the above-noted “proposed rule.” The escalating administrative overreaching of EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers is apparently boundless.

As example, only last year, In Tarrant v. Herrmann, the U.S. Supreme Court held very specifically and unanimously that: “The sovereign States possess an “absolute right to all their navigable waters and the soils under them for their own common use.” U.S. Supreme Court No. 11-889, June 13, 2013. Justice Sotomayor, appointed by President Obama, delivered this opinion for a unanimous Court.

QUESTION: How does the term “absolute authority of the sovereign states” specifically included in the High Court’s ruling regarding navigable waters comport with EPA and the Department of the Army Corps of Engineers proposed rule to redefine “navigable waters of the United States?” Either the States have absolute authority over their navigable waters or they do not. The High Court says they most certainly do. How many times must EPA be continuously slapped down by the Courts before federal administrative reasonableness breaks through?

POLITICAL TIMING: It is no surprise that EPA would react to the Supreme Court’s June 2013 ruling by shortly thereafter crafting an 86-page fictional strategy to overturn a judicial ruling by administrative fiat. Before condemning the strong word, “fiat,” note this language within the proposed rule: “Waters in these categories would be jurisdictional “waters of the United States” by rule——no additional analysis would be required.” (Certainly not the analysis of Congress of the Courts!)

The proposed “redefinition” is closely akin to intentional theft of the authority of the Sovereign States over their waters. Implementation of this rule will immediately neuter States and facilitate such entities as EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers to move immediately past state agencies and directly on to private properties containing so much as a momentary mud-puddle. Property owners and American citizens expect and are due the U.S. Constitutional protections from such aggressive usurpation of State authority and citizen property rights.

SECTON C-111, “Interstate Waters:”Regarding this section of the proposed rule specific to Interstate Waters,” the Supreme Court further noted, “Tarrant argues that the Oklahoma laws are unconstitutional restrictions on interstate commerce. We hold that Tarrant’s claims lack merit.” This federal water compact among the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Texas—approved by Congress— does not supersede Oklahoma statutes that restrict out-of-state diversions of water. How does the proposed EPA Rule propose that a federal “definition” of navigable waters of the United States is not outright “theft” of the “absolute authority” of the sovereign states to their navigable waters and the soils under them?

SYNERGISTIC SINS OF EPA: Combine this rule, should it be unfortunately adopted with the December 2013 EPA Decision, absent any jurisdictional authority from Congress, of creating new Indian jurisdiction in Fremont County, Wyoming. The deadly combination of two really unconstitutional tactics of EPA would neatly confiscate the waters of Fremont County, along with the land. What a nefarious “pilot project” to implement across the country. The combination of federal agencies gone rogue, utilizing the willing pawns of tribal governments will soon wreak havoc across the Western States. Is that the plan?

I am comforted that States are waking up, and thousands upon thousands of citizens being frighteningly impacted by Executive Branch overreaching, are also waking up and speaking up. I am merely one of them.

Elaine Willman,
Hobart, WI

Elaine Willman Biography:
Elaine Willman served from 2002 through 2007 as National Chair of Citizens Equal Rights Alliance (CERA), an organization of community groups in 25 states. CERA organized over 25 years ago to provide resources to tribal members who lack civil and constitutional rights as enrolled members within their reservation boundaries. CERA also provides information and resources to communities and citizens struggling with tribal government over-reaching with efforts to tax or govern non-tribal citizens, or tribal governments that are aggressively pursuing land claims, natural resources, utility acquisitions and off-reservation casinos.

Ms. Willman is presently Administrator for the Town of Hobart, Wisconsin and is no longer the acting chair for CERA.She was a Toppenish City Council member, is a university adjunct faculty teaching in the Masters Programs of Public and Business Administration, and has had her own community planning and grant writing consulting service. She has a 15-year career in city planning and administration and is also pursuing a doctoral in public policy with a focus on federal Indian policy.

Ms. Willman is of direct Cherokee ancestry through the enrollment of her mother and grandmother, as well as through her father’s Cherokee ancestry. She is the author of Going To Pieces…resulting from a 6,000 mile road trip Ms. Willman took with a videographer, across 17 Indian Reservations from Washington State to New York.

On December 8, 2006 Elaine Willman was invited to keynote a symposium in Green Bay, Wisconsin, sponsored by the University of Southern California and Department of Homeland Security, as her book “Going To Pieces…” was used as narrative field research for the development of 10 “Risk Indicators of Terrorism” on and near Indian reservations.

She deeply respects her own ancestry and all cultures, but also deeply believes that it is every citizen’s task to preserve and protect their constitutional and civil rights and property rights from inappropriate government decisions, whether those decisions result from the federal government, a state, county or tribal government. Government decision-making is a very separate issue from respect for culture.

Scorched earth: Over a HUNDRED homes burned to the ground as huge Washington wildfire burns town to the ground

PNP comment: Please be ready for the horrible destruction caused by these fires in the photos in the article.

  • Pateros, Washington, was mostly destroyed in the fire that swept through the town

  • Town of Malott has been completely evacuated and residents of nearby Brewster also begin to flee flames

  • Wildfire remains zero percent contained, despite the efforts of firefighters

By Ryan Gorman and Michael Zennie and Associated Press Reporter

A raging wildfire in central Washington has wiped most of a small town off the map – destroying 100 homes as it whips out of control across 260 square miles of dry forest – and fears are now growing that it will claim a second community.

The Carlton Complex fire grew by nearly ten times Friday as four fires horrifically merged into one and exploded across the small village of Pateros, officials said. Residents of the town of Malott and outlying areas of nearby Brewster have been evacuated as flames rages only miles from their homes.

‘We basically evacuated the whole town’ of Malott, Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said Friday night. Those living in outlying areas of Brewster were also told to leave.

Malott is home to about 500 people, while the population of Brewster is about 2,400.
