Alienation or Alien Nation: Your Choice


On April 22, 2009, I wrote a blog item titled “DIANNE FEINSTEIN: OOPS I DID IT AGAIN?” which contained a section that started …

I seem to remember something about Senator Feinstein and gold mining that I had heard when I was with my hunting buddies on a daytrip to the old ghost town at Bodie State Park.  And then I found this …

“On October 8, 1994 the biggest gold heist in history occurred, but this theft lacked the melodrama of a Jesse James holdup or the excitement of a Brink's truck robbery. Nary a word was reported by the media even though this thievery was committed in the light of day. The citizens that were being robbed tried to cry out for help but the lawmen wouldn't listen because unbeknownst to them they were helping the bandits gain their booty.”

The 103rd Congress managed to accomplish more than a gang of train robbers could achieve in a lifetime when they approved the Desert Wilderness Protection Act. ‘Instead of voting on the Desert Wilderness Protection Act, Congress should be convening a criminal investigation,’ said Donald Fife, spokesman for the National Association of Mining Districts. Fife was commenting on recent information that indicates tens of billions of dollars in gold deposits and huge real estate swindles may be the motivating factors behind the act.”

Sponsored by Senator Diane Feinstein, the Desert Wilderness Protection Act and it's companion bill known as the California Desert Protection Act create three new national parks and seventy-four new wilderness areas in the desert of California that would total 8 million acres (an area the size of Maryland). This will close this acreage to development, force out private owners within the protected area and close down mines and ranches. It would also expand the Death Valley and Joshua Tree national monuments and upgrade them to national parks. This is the largest wilderness land lockup since the 1980 Alaska Lands Act; largest ever in the lower 48 states. Senator Feinstein contends that the fragile ecosystem of the desert must be protected from development, but in reality the areas being placed into park and wilderness closures are not threatened.”


So I was naturally interested in the Washington Examiner’s editorial asking … 

“Why is Ken Salazar hiding memo on new monuments, wilderness areas?”

“Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar was asked in a Feb. 26, 2010, letter from Western Caucus Chairman Rep. Rob Bishop, R-UT, and other representatives from western states for the missing pages from a leaked government memo that “contained detailed information about the administration’s plans to designate as many as 14 new national monuments and lock up as much as 13 million acres in states throughout the West.”

Why it matters …

Contained within a secret document leaked by unknown persons, is a section that deals with the exact geographic area that was cited in the story about a great gold theft involving manipulation of public lands for personal gain.

“Attachment 4 -- Prospective Conservation Designation: National Monument Designations under the Antiquities Act”

“Many nationally significant landscapes are worthy of inclusion in the NLCS. The areas listed below may be good candidates for National Monument designation under the Antiquities Act; however, further evaluations should be completed prior to any final decision, including an assessment of public and Congressional support.”

“Bodie Hills, CA”

“The remote Bodie Hills, located in the eastern Sierra Nevada, provide habitat for the imperiled sage grouse and the iconic pronghorn antelope, rare in California. The ghost town of Bodie State Historic Park, managed by the State of California, lies at the center of the Bodie Hills. Bodie State Historic Park is known as the best preserved ghost town in the West and receives several hundred thousand visits annually. Numerous gold mining operations have been proposed in the
Bodies, and a new proposal is pending
. Bodie Hills provides an opportunity to link. both
ecotourism and cultural tourism providing benefits to the surrounding communities.”

Is the THEFT of our natural resources by the special interests in exchange for campaign contributions and support continuing?

If you believe the original story about the misuse of government power to convey extremely valuable land and mineral rights to certain special interests, then perhaps this might be  part and parcel (pun intended) in the continuing illegal conversion or theft of public property.

One section of the story stood out …

It is alleged that JLB Realty Corp. based out of Chicago, is tied to Dick Blum, millionaire husband of Sen. Diane Feinstein and that JLB allegedly will stand to make a huge profit on this development. In the name of "re-wilding" millions of acres of desert, grave financial and environmental damage will occur once the land is closed to the public.

Could it be that the same special interests, emboldened by the democrat majority in Congress and the election of a democrat President with ties to Chicago’s thuggish politics is now back for a second dip? Just asking?

Bottom line …

With so much governmental malfeasance and corruption, it is imperative that “we the people” elect honest brokers to look out for our national interests. The self-dealing and corrupt politicians and their special interest friends must be investigated and held to account for their past actions. Properties deeds conveyed in an illegal manner or as part of some special interest deal must be reviewed and, when appropriate, returned to their rightful owners – be they individuals, corporations or “we the people.”

We need to clean up this cesspool of corruption in Washington, starting this November. Before we find that the resources of our nation have been plundered for private gain and our political system turned into an European socialist quagmire.
