This man spent his weekend helping to free sex trafficking victims

PNP comment: I pray for continued success for Tim Ballard and his operations! — Editor Liz Bowen

New York Post

Ex-CIA analyst Tim Ballard is now a sex-trade investigator — and he just cracked a major ring in Haiti that liberated 29 young women and children.

It was all in a day’s work for Ballard, who teams with a nonprofit called Operation Underground Railroad, made up of former members of the US military who use their know-how to battle child-trafficking and sex slavery in countries where the practices are common.

The Haiti operation, called Sainte Jou — Creole for Blessed Day — led to the arrest of nine suspected sex traffickers on Feb. 5, Super Bowl Sunday, by local authorities, who worked in tandem with the US organization.

“We are not a rogue agency, we are not vigilantes,” said Matt Osborn, a CIA and State Department veteran, who helps Ballard direct the group’s operations.

They target locales notorious for sex trafficking and then set up complex sting operations to nab the pimps and free the young women and girls.

In Haiti, a sting was set up at the Kaliko Beach Club, a high-end resort on the west side of the island of Hispaniola, which is shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

On Feb. 3 and 4 — as Americans were preparing their Super Bowl parties — Osborn said a team of 25 men began flying in to “play the role of middlemen for wealthy American pedophiles.” They organized with the pimps to line up local girls — some as young as 13 — for an orgy.

“The average price we were going to have to pay was $300 for each girl, for what was billed as a sex party of four to six hours,” Osborn said.

By Sunday, a yacht moored off-shore was made to look like a wealthy party boat down from Florida for the weekend.

Most of the undercovers were wearing flip-flops and shorts and playing ball on the beach to give off a party vibe.

Ballard, who worked for the Department of Homeland Security as a special agent, met face-to-face with the pimps and recorded the details of the deal to hand over to Haitian authorities, who swooped in to break up the sex ring.

The US State Department said Haiti only passed legislation criminalizing sex trafficking in 2014.

US House committee urges EPA to drop opposition to Pebble mine

Clean Water ACT - EPA

adn.com

February 22, 2017

Author:

WASHINGTON — A U.S. House committee on Wednesday urged the new head of the Environmental Protection Agency to reverse the agency’s plans to limit development at the proposed Pebble project in Alaska’s Bristol Bay region.

In a letter to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, chair of the House Science Committee, charged the agency with overstepping its statutory authority under President Barack Obama.

The committee has held hearings and conducted investigations into the EPA scientists involved in the scientific assessment that was the basis for the agency’s decision. The agency’s final action is on hold during a related court case.

The Pebble project has the potential to be one of the world’s largest gold and copper mines. But the deposit sits at the headwaters of Bristol Bay, a spawning site for some of Alaska’s most prized salmon fisheries.

The project has been the subject of controversy for more than a decade, and the Pebble Limited Partnership, owned by Northern Dynasty Minerals, has not yet applied for a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers. The EPA could effectively “veto” an Army Corps permit.

Published in Siskiyou Daily News, Yreka, CA.

The U.S. Forest Service held its first snow survey on Feb. 1st in the mountains surrounding the Scott Valley. Guess what? Yep, measurements were over 130 percent higher than historic averages. Unfortunately, last week’s warm temps and rain have likely lowered that percentage, but here is a quick rundown of the first 2017 results.

Middle Boulder #1 had 61.5 inches of snow — average of 50 inches. Middle Boulder #3 was at 69 inches — average of 49.2 inches. Both of those stations are over 6,000 feet in elevation. Dynamite Meadow at 5,700 elevation feet measured 47.5 inches — average of 38.3 inches. Swampy John above Etna was 80 inches — average of 57.4 inches (5,500 feet elevation) and Scott Mt. at 5,900 feet elevation was 67.5 inches — average of 41 inches.

Once again, we have witnessed the flooding waters creating Scott Valley Lake near Fort Jones as Kidder Creek and Scott River overflowed their banks. Sure do hope the Oroville dam overflow spillway holds. Flooding is causing problems throughout the rest of the state. It is frustrating that our weather can’t even itself out instead of famine-or-feast in the rain/snow department.

There really should be many more dams and reservoirs catching this rain. Yep, the State of California has really messed up in a variety of ways, including not reinforcing the spillway at Oroville dam with rebar. Ugh!

Tea Party

The Yreka Tea Party will hold its next meeting in Fort Jones at the Community Center on Feb. 28, 2017. Time is 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. James Roseman, executive director of the Siskiyou Domestic Violence & Crisis Center will speak on “Erin’s Law.” There will be a short video titled: “Ending the Nightmare.” It is about child abuse, specifically exposing and working to end child sexual abuse in the U.S. The statistics are daunting with one in four girls and one in six boys being sexually assaulted before the age of 18. And it is usually by someone they trust in their family, friends, neighbors or coaches. Erin’s Law teaches children how to protect themselves. For more information, call Louise Giatto at 530-842-5443.

Ray Haupt, Siskiyou Co. Supervisor of Dist 5, and Preston Harris, who is project coordinator for Siskiyou RCD, spoke at the last meeting about the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act that was passed into law in 2014. Preston said 11 years of local studies show Scott River is not the primary source of the aquifer – it is supplemental. That is good news for agricultural irrigation. He added, “We are a snowmelt driven system. We are not a groundwater dependent system.”

The Scott River Groundwater Advisory Committee measures 35 wells each month as part of its groundwater study. Preston said the aquifer had recharged significantly, even before all this winter snow and rain. He added the work with Dr. Thomas Harter and U.C. Davis is a landowner-driven process and ties-in well with the California’s SGMA.

Ray said the county is on-track to meet the first step demanded by the state’s new groundwater management act, which is in June. The actual management plan must be written by 2020. The state wants to know how much water comes in and how much goes out in the sub-basin.

The next step is to form sub-basin subcommittees of landowners that will participate in developing the plan. This is huge folks. We do not want state agency bureaucrats telling us how we can use our groundwater. This process undertaken by the Siskiyou Co. Natural Resources Dept. will keep groundwater management under local control.

Ray also shared that the CA. Dept. of Fish and Wildlife spoke to the county supervisors regarding the dreaded 1602 Permit that is needed to move gravel to obtain legal water right allotments. “Vague” describes the presentation. Several farmers asked for clarification on quickness for when emergency permits should be issued. With the high waters this year, excess gravel and debris will be a problem at headgates.

It was suggested for DFW to hold several Town Hall-type of meetings, so they could specifically answer questions from irrigators, which was taken under advisement. We shall see.

The Marijuana Ordinance is back in the news. Because California’s complicated new law was passed in the November election, the county will now need to modify its ordinance to agree with state law. Crazy as it sounds, the county allowed 12 plants to be grown by those who had prescriptions. The new state law reduces that number to just six plants — if you do not have a commercial license. Oh, and the California commercial license is not yet available.

About 25 marijuana growers attended the supervisors’ meeting and complained that they can’t get by with growing just six plants.

Forest sale

Good news! The sale of Timbervest forest properties surrounding Scott Valley from Fort Jones to Callahan did not go through. The non-profit group expected the county supervisors to support the purchase. Ray said the supervisors did not support the non-profit, because it was planning to strip the water rights and give them to California DFW, which would herd that water for fish – away from agriculture.

Bundy

Biggest news is in regards to BLM Supervisor Daniel P. Love, who is being investigated for deletion of 100s of documents before a congressional investigative committee issued a subpoena, obstruction of a congressional investigation and witness tampering. This should bode well for Bundy defense.

Siskiyou Co. Sheriff’s Office Identifies Man Found Deceased in Klamath River

Sheriff Jon Lopey, Siskiyou Sheriff's report

February 21, 2017

The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) has identified the man found deceased and partially submerged along the north bank of the Klamath River near a residence on SR 96 west of SR 263 on Monday, February 20, 2017.  He was identified as Mr. Jesse Francis Ward, 62 of Happy Camp.  A SCSO deputy located the body, which resulted in an extensive investigation by SCSO’s Major Crimes’ Unit (MCU) and a member of the Siskiyou County District Attorney’s Office.  The location is about 8 miles north of the Yreka city limits and is located in the unincorporated area of Siskiyou County.  The body could not be immediately examined or recovered due to its location, which prompted a response from members of the SCSO’s Dive Team and SCSO’s Water Safety Unit.  The case is being handled as a possible homicide at this time.

According to Sheriff Jon Lopey, “Although this case is being handled as a possible homicide, we will not know conclusively what caused the victim’s death until an autopsy is conducted, which is scheduled for Wednesday, February 22, 2017.  The case is still under investigation and there is still a lot of work to be done to help investigators determine the cause and manner of death and related factors needed to solve this case.  On behalf of the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office, I would like to extend our sincere condolences and prayers to Mr. Ward, his family, friends, and associates.  Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office’s MCU at our 24-hour Dispatch Center at (530) 841-2900.”

Bundy — BREAKING: Judge Brown Signs Order Against Free Press

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, Constitution, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

Gary Hunt Ordered To Appear In Portland Federal Court

Redoubt News.com

by Shari Dovale
February 16, 2017

 

As we have seen all too often recently, US Federal Judge Anna Brown in the District of Oregon has had her own personal war on the US Constitution. She showed this stance on multiple occasions with the case of the US vs. Ammon Bundy, et al.

The second Malheur Protest Trial is proving to be no different from the first. She does not intend to allow jurors to consider the US Constitution as law, only what she dictates the law should be.

Additionally, she has decided that the defendants will not be allowed their right to a jury trial on all of the charges. She will decide on several of the verdicts herself through a bench trial.

But her fight with the people does not end there. She has decided to slap down the First Amendment, and Freedom of the Press. Specifically, she has begun with Gary Hunt.

Judge Brown signed an order today to claim jurisdiction over Hunt, though he resides in the District of California. She has directed him to appear in her court in Portland, Oregon on March 10, 2017 and to file a written response to her by March 3rd.

ORDER TO SHOW CAUSEORDER TO SHOW CAUSE

She has decided that Mr. Hunt should not be allowed to bring the truth to the public, specifically the truth about the Malheur Protest Trials and the the informants involved.

Brown had previously thought that the identities of the confidential informants was not to be public, or even go to the defense. The defense was finally allowed redacted information that was meant to confuse them and hinder their chances at a fair trial. She ordered that these documents were not to be published.

These documents have not been published.

However, nothing is good enough in this case unless the government can justify it’s $1million+ price tag by getting any kind of tally mark in their win column.

You can read all about the case here.

At the time of this writing, Hunt had not been served with these papers. When he is finally served, probably tomorrow morning, he will make a decision on how he will respond. Until then, we must inform the public of the continuing saga of Judge Brown v. US Constitution.

Freedom of the Press is guaranteed by our Constitution. We cannot let the overreaching government take away our right to the truth.

U.S. Constitution
Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Siskiyou Co. Sheriff’s Office Locates Dead Body Partially Submerged in Klamath River

Sheriff Jon Lopey, Siskiyou Sheriff's report

February 20, 2017

On Monday, February 20, 2017, shortly after 1152 a.m., the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) located a dead body partially submerged along the north bank of the Klamath River near a residence on SR 96 west of SR 263.  The location is about 8 miles north of the Yreka city limits and is located in the unincorporated area of Siskiyou County.  The body could not be immediately examined or recovered due to its location, which prompted a response from members of the SCSO’s Dive Team and SCSO’s Water Safety Unit. The SCSO’s Dive Team and Water Safety Unit used a boat and had to maneuver the watercraft in swift-moving water but successfully recovered the body and conducted a search along the river’s bank.  A SCSO patrol deputy and members of the SCSO’s Major Crimes Unit (MCU) conducted a crime scene investigation along with a deputy district attorney from the Siskiyou County District Attorney’s Office.  The case is being handled as a possible homicide at this time.

According to Sheriff Jon Lopey, “Although this case is being handled as a possible homicide, we will not know conclusively what happened to the victim until an autopsy is conducted, which will help investigators determine the cause and manner of death.  The body was that of a male adult but his name will not be released until the next-of-kin has been notified.  Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office’s MCU at our 24-hour Dispatch Center at (530) 841-2900.”

Klamath ‘Takings’ trial adjourns, H&N, posted to KBC 2/20/19. “The two-week trial started on Jan. 30 at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, within walking distance of the White House. More than 20 irrigators or those representing the interests of irrigators testified during the trial of their losses in 2001 when water was shutoff to benefit endangered fish downstream.”

Water decisions are not making any sense, by former Klamath County Commissioner Tom Mallams, H&N, posted to KBC 2/20/17. “The irony of this is so obvious. The rivers are at flood stage or very near it, and OWRD finally lifts the tribal call on the water…This applies to all uses on the listed water right, including stock water, and domestic…surface water, (rivers, creeks and springs), and ground water, (wells). Most all of the rights list irrigation as a listed use.” “…A single judge and our federal government send extra water down the Klamath River for fish in the middle of a flood. You would certainly think a flood event would contain enough water for any fish needs, including flush or pulse flows. It is absolutely necessary that logic and true science drive the decisions critical to the survival of our local economies…”

If four of the seven dams were already torn down, the flood and destruction from the Klamath River would likely have been be epic.”
