A landmark decision yesterday from the US Supreme Court spells hope for private sector survival against thug-boot out-of-control government cronies.

The Pacific Legal Foundation, in gratis, represented a family, Sackett, against the EPA's assertions, fines, decrees and complete fraud that without an avenue to defend against them, the Sacketts would owe hundreds of thousands of dollars for encroaching upon their own property...yes, due to a winter-time puddle that the EPA suggested (without any study) was a "wetland."

Up steps the Pacific Legal Foundation, who for the last five years fought on behalf of the Sacketts' Constitutional right to defend themselves in court.

Sound familiar???

The five year legal journey took them through appeals, eventually through the Ninth Circus Court...who naturally sided with the EPA.

Yet, the Pacific Legal Foundation fought on, and the US Supreme Court agreed to hear their case: in a 9-0 ruling (!) the Sacketts have been granted their Constitutional right to defend against non-elected self-regulated out-of-control government regulation.

We recognize the Original Sixteen to One Mine is fighting a similar battle. This decision has parallel and far-reaching potential toward putting the current legal issues behind us. Depsite the differences in the subject of the cases(EPA vs private property non-wetland; CA Water Board's assault vs Original Sixteen to One's survival), the link is stark: non-elected government authority does NOT have the authority to simply levy fines and decrees against private entities without their ability to fight back, without their Constitutional right to defend in court against whatever allegations are pushed down our throats.

I strongly suggest everyone google "Pacific Legal Foundation Sackett" and read for yourselves.

I also strongly suggest that our mine contact the Pacific Legal Foundation for any possible help....although I suspect Mike's already on it.

There is something that might be good for mining, but might stop mining again like President Roosevelt did. Should the United States consider gold as a Stratigic resource for defense then there is a very good possibility that federal funding would be forth comming for its extraction, but with sale to the Federal Government only. President Obama has just issued an Executive Order: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/03/16/executive-order-national-defense-resources-preparedness, this allows all natural resources critical to National Defense to be controlled by the government, to include the resource development needs.

The E.P.A. has inspected water resources back east and confirmed that the water was not contaminated form the fracking process as claimed by those who own the wells.
Water wells are not very deep, only about 200 ft. to 300 ft..
The gas and oil wellls are usually deeper than 4000 ft. seperated by impermiable hard rock strata.

California starting to Squeeze its citizens.

We just returned from the CPA's office after submitting our tax information for 2011.

The bottom line is we will be paying more of a percentage of our income to the State. The CPA said California is turning all the rocks in search for more money and their sights are on all of us.

Next year all properties in our area will be reassessed by the State and the result will be higher property taxes next tax period.

It's not too difficult to imagine that the bartering process as a result of all of this will get kick-started into high gear.

In the paper this morning they are speaking of "Oil Fracking In State Gets Little review."

In other sections of the country, The Rocky Mountain West and the Northeast toxic chemicals have been found in drinking water from oil fracking.

Lawmakers, seem little interested in requiring industry to disclose the chemicals they are putting in the ground that will taint water supplies.

Our environment and public health are being threatened while regulators look the other way.

It's the same old story, grease my palm and we'll stay out of your hair.

While China looks to the future with increasing renewable energy output, it could depend on 25% of their energy requirements from this source by 2020, we insist on investing in fossil fuels with no long term plan in place.

Isn't it interesting that corporate boards are adding more public members to insure no hanky-panky goes on concerning shareholders while the boys in Sacramento do whatever suits them in protecting and expanding their incomes.

Recently it was announced by an exiting Goldman Sachs VP that certain employees refer to their clients as muppets. I would venture to guess that the folks in State government refer to us as their know-nothing-captives with a checkbook.

People are registering their displeasure with the rampent desire of state government to raise taxes, by changing their tax donation to the minimum required by law. To take the money away from those who are to enforce the multitude of regulations. This is how you stop abusive government policy.

More from the International Forecaster:

California Tax Revenue Plunges by 22%.

Compared to last year, State tax collections for February shriveled by $1.2 billion or 22%. The deterioration is more than double the shocking $535 million reported decline for last month.


Did anyone really miss why all these regulations were put in place?

From this mornings International Forecaster:

We need to end the orgy of rule making in America (John Stossel)

“If you have 10,000 regulations,” Winston Churchill said, “you destroy all respect for law.” …But Churchill never imagined a government that would add 10,000 year after year. That’s what we have in America. We have 160,000 pages of rules from the feds alone. States and localities have probably doubled that. We have so many rules that legal specialists can’t keep up…

Comments from a contributor at jsmineset.com.

Hi Jim,

This Bloomberg op-ed on California’s municipal financial woes supports your recent observation that the bankruptcy of Stockton will be the first of many more.

As one writer noted, “In nearly every [California] municipality, employee pensions are being prioritized over libraries, parks, street maintenance, health care and public safety.”

In spite of this, the chanel replica handbags unions are fighting pension reform tooth and nail.

California is a major disaster waiting to happen.

Stockton to Take Steps Toward Bankruptcy, City Manager Says
February 24, 2012, 5:22 PM EST
By Alison Vekshin and Michael B. Marois

Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) — Stockton, California, may take the first steps toward becoming the most populous U.S. city to file for bankruptcy next week because of burdensome employee costs, excessive debt and bookkeeping errors that misrepresented accounts, city officials said today.

The Stockton City Council will meet Feb. 28 to consider a type of mediation that allows creditors to participate, the first move toward a Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing under a new state law. The council will also weigh suspending some payments on long-term debt of about $702 million, according to a 2010 financial statement.

California State Senator Noreen Evans from the 2nd District just got another reminder that she has failed, again, to address my concerns relating to the Central Water Board's persecution of our family's investment in the Original Sixteen to One Mine.

This is short and to the point in regards to keeping the faith:

My son was told, by a dealership mechanic, that a 2004 Civic Honda just left ahead of him after being serviced in Las Vegas with 1,200,000 miles on it. It has been used as a courier service between Las Vegas and and Los Angeles.

Of course, it has been run on synthetic oil, no sludge.

And then I started thinking about our State bureucrats and all the sludge they shovel our way. All we have to do for the Mine is get rid of the delutional muckrakers who are bleeding our resources and fouling up our operation. Politicians, at the most, produce nothing but their own waste.
