I was on the Sierra County website, and noticed that the property at 505 Miners St
Alleghany was going up for bid for back taxes. That is very close to the Sixteen to One Mine. Is it related?

Remember the Liberty Dollar? Well, its founder, apparently, is headed for some jail time on trumped up charges. How could a supporter of hard currency supported by our Constitution be declared a domestic terrorist by Fed prosecutors? It's easy, it's now their game and we're no longer part of it.

No CDAA seen yet...because it wasn't a Home Depot (my apologies) but rather a Staples.

Seems that the Water Bored should be there, though.

Rick, I'm just glad you didn't ask, "How many CDAA attorneys does it take to screw in a light bulb?"

Tragically, I just learned on the KFBK news that a man working for a lighting company at a Home Depot, at 6:30 this morning, was crushed to death in the mobile elevator bucket he was operating alone (before his partner arrived) when he got sandwiched between the bucket and the arch of the building where the light was located.

With true respect for his family, I am still compelled to ask:

When will the CDAA show up and bring manslaughter charges against the Home Depot manager and the owner of the light company??

Tony Baker, Bluejay:

Only thinkers are even aware of the progressive creep. Since we are thinkers, and of sound practical mind, remember this:

It is all predictable, and has been: search the "coffee-cup" campaigne in the 50's to hear Ronaldus Magnus speak precisely to this issue, 50 years ago. It is creeping over the edge, and still, we will throw it back overboard.

I think the sleeping giant isn't sleeping inside the belly. I've not given up. In fact, I'm fired up.

The following is from Tony Baker a friend of the Company:

With the turmoil in the middle east and rising oil and gas prices, it's time to reflect.

Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY ..... during the Carter Administration?

Anybody? Anything? No?

Didn't think so!

Bottom line: We've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency...the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember!

Ready?? It was very simple . . . and, at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977 TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.


A little over 34 years ago, 30% of our oil consumption was imported. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports. The good old Federal bureaucracy!!


Hello!! Anybody Home?

The Feds sue to overturn Arizona immigration law. Justice Department lawyers argued that the state statute should be declared invalid because it has improperly preempted federal law.

The Federal Government set up laws and regulations for mining, too. They were in place (with a few updates) for over one hundred years. They have set acceptable limits for arsenic in mine discharge waters. There are safety rules to protect the miners. However, the State of California has been listening to terrorists and fanatics who do not have our wellbeing at heart. They have decided that the federal regulations are not to their liking. With the federal regulations, at least you knew where you stood and could plan your operation accordingly.

Now, the State is in dire financial difficulty. Maybe, we should go back to a time when we were prosperous. Look at why we were prosperous and do what we can to be that way again. That doesn't mean that we can't learn from our mistakes and do it even better the second time.

The link below to the article "Tipping Point" by Martin Armstrong is dedicated to Rick so that he may continue his education as he continues his efforts to wake up the people.

It's appropriate that Mr. Armstrong's computer that held the data for the history of the world which could easily predict long term cycle trends was named Socrates.

Politicians are incapable of caring for their people once they get a taste of the power. What they fear the most comes from orators of the truth. Socrates was a tragic casualty of those fears while Martin Armstrong pays the price, as well, for challenging these so-called public servants.

Bluejay, this is precisely why fiscally minded state-houses were voted into office in November. It will be GRAND to watch.

There seems to be a disconnect of understanding between those who see unions as universal, vs. those of us who know the difference between public and private sector unions. (Debating validity of private sector unions is another story for another day.)

The vast difference is stark. Somehow my discussion friends can't see this. Hmmmm...

I just had a heated (albeit, good) exchange with a friend who cannot, for the life of him, see the difference. It always comes back to the tiresome disconnect of "Oh, okay, so the little guy gets screwed while the rich get richer..."

Such a vast distinction between public vs. private sector existence, and yet, it remains elusive to them.

Years ago, the dreaded word 'communist' used to be a rally cry for those of us defending the US Constitution. Now it is the banner cry for people who can't distinguish the difference between freedom, individuality and self-determination vs. public sector community organizing.

Great...and now we have a Community Organizer for a president.

Is anyone watching the trend????

A consulting firm founded by economist Nouriel Roubini said there could be close to $100 billions of municipal-bond defaults over the next five years as state and local government-debt problems damp the U.S. economic recovery.
That figure would by most estimates represent a significant increase over defaults in recent history, but it doesn't appear to be as dire as a prediction last year by analyst Meredith Whitney

Silver closed $33.38 UP $1.27

Silver is in the process of adjusting to its unknown true value as the price suppression scheme has ended with monstrous losses for those who sold silver short and continue to remain short.

There have been reports that the current total short position in silver is equivalent to one year's world mine production. This could be right around 800 million ounces or so.

Top 20 Silver Producing Countries in 2009
(millions of ounces)

1. Peru 123.9
2. Mexico 104.7
3. China 89.1
4. Australia 52.6
5. Bolivia 42.6
6. Russia 42.2
7. Chile 41.8

Silver is in short supply. The Royal Canadian Mint is having difficulty acquiring the metal.

The California Highway Patrol has invaded our town today. Motorcycle patrolmen have descended upon townsfolk like hungry locust picking our pockets left and right.

"Squeeze the People" is in full-force here. The financial affairs of the State are suspected to be in much worse shape than the politicians are willing to admit.

Anyone holding State Municipal bonds needs to have their heads examined.

Our State has to be a complete disaster based upon what Marc Faber says. One of Faber's comments that struck me was that the worst world-wide investment managers are the ones running the State pension funds. Faber says, they buy at the peak and have sold at the bottom.

In addition, the civil servants are sucking us dry with their excessive salaries and benfits which they refuse to scale down. Their answer has ALWAYS been: either take our money in taxes or take our property.

It's called, "Squeeze The People." Today, the governor from Wisconsin is trying to break-up the civil servant's unions for their past salary and benefit pressures that are sinking his State.

Mr Faber says, "we are all doomed."

Check out Mr. Faber's comments:

Any pension fund, especially public union employees', have their funds invested in stocks, bonds and generally, Wall Street.

These people must be stupid, un-educated, certainly devoid of rational thought, and think the rest of us are dumber than they are.

The investments of all the writers for Rolling Stone should check their own reality and remember why a private sector rag is still in print.

We'll have to continue to wonder why the NYTimes is...

We should have a new section titled "SQUEEZE THE PEOPLE"

In Italy a few months back a government agency there, while checking bank records, discovered many accounts in the names of U.S. Politicians including separate ones for the president, his wife and for their children. Is there something wrong with our banking system that the general populace is unaware of?

Obama Administration calls for 5% royalty on gross proceeds of mines

The Obama Administration has called for a hardrock mining royalty and a new hardrock AML fee, along with other fees and tax increases for coal mining.

Author: Dorothy Kosich
Posted: Wednesday , 16 Feb 2011


President Obama's Fiscal Year 2012 proposed budget calls for charging a 5% royalty on the gross proceeds of hardrock minerals mined on public lands including silver, gold and copper.

The President is proposing a number of new royalties and fees on both hardrock and coal mining, along with reductions on oil and gas subsidies, which he says will save the country $3 billion over the next 10 years.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said the President's budget "provides a better return to taxpayers from mineral development."

"A number of recent studies by the Government Accountability Office and DOI's Inspector General have found that taxpayers could earn a better return through more rigorous oversight and policy changes, such as charging appropriate fees and reforming how royalties are set," the OMB said.

The President's budget would also establish a new Abandoned Mine Land fee on hardrock mining, "so that the hardrock mining industry is held responsible in the same manner as the coal mining industry."

The agency also suggested the budget "mitigates the environmental impacts of mining by dedicating and prioritizing funds to clean up abandoned mines and by strengthening the regulation of active coal mining." The fee would be based on the volume of material that a mining company displaces.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, a longtime advocate of Nevada's gold mining industry, said, "I'm willing to consider any proposal for mining reform that protects the mining industry, doesn't kill jobs and shares revenue with the state."

"I will carefully study the president's proposal to determine whether it meets these criteria and ensures that one of the pillars of the state's economy can continue to create jobs and strengthen the economy," he added.

While Reid's efforts have been successful in the past in stopping the Congress' effort to levy new fees and taxes on the hardrock mining industry, this time Republicans control the House, which may also help U.S. mining.

Meanwhile the President's proposed budget for the Environmental Protection Agency stresses coordinating federal water policy with state and local government, Native American tribes, industry and agricultural sector to achieve goals.

Among those goals are coordinating the actions of the EPA, the Department of the Interior, and the Army Corps of Engineers "to better address impacts of surface coal mining on aquatic resources."

However, House Republicans have proposed cutting the EPA budget by 16% below what President Obama has requested.

....because, if they were serious, they would tell the real story of why a REAL gold-mine is being assaulted by illegal actions by politically appointed courst. Hmmm, let's see....

Nope. It's still the New York Times.

Here's a headline that should be slapped onto the front page instead:

"Private Sector California Gold Mine Target Of Fraud."

And now, a serious response. HURRAY for www.agoracom.com for posting and noting the absolute crap we're enduring down here. The horror stories of unbridled railroading, illegal, spurious, slanderous, criminal attacks of the Original Sixteen to One Mine by EU-type un-elected scandocrats and just down-right insider juris-non-prudence by California's politically-appointed spurious rulings spewed from so-called "courts" are now cited in an international journal.

Welcome aboard, new readers. Read all about it, pleae! And spread the word.

There is a world of injustice to explore here. I invite you to read all Forum entries, and become aquinted with the absolute CRAP this gem of a true mine has been enduring for at least a decade.

The most positive thing to derive from it all: this is the highest-grade mine in all of California, surviving amidst the onslaught. Highest-grade in not only gold, but in SPIRIT, and one that will NEVER submit to the crap cited above.

Welcome aboard. Read all about it. Smile! (Crap sinks to the bottom, as will those who keep trying to use politics and unfunded identities afloat by assaulting the private sector for their funding...truth wins every time is used.

My wonderment about articles like the recent NY Times gold story centers on the reporter. Then wonderment moves to the editor, publisher and finally the owners. With such inane reporting what is the rest of the paperís usefulness or credibility? To research, write and publish about the great California Sierra Nevada gold belt and not expose the reader to mining in the Alleghany Mining District is silly to say the least and vacuous to tell the truth. Does a venerable newspaper such as the NY Times condone this quality of story telling?

With the Discovery Channel portraying gold miners and a gold operation on national TV as serious, it is no wonder that America is not interested in gold mining, production of Americaís bountiful natural resources located in California. Today the Sixteen to One mine I proven to be one of the most reliable, precious and much needed industries in Earth. So, why are gold miners portrayed as greedy, buffoons or uncaring rapists on mother Earth?

How could any serious professional reporter or organization not uncover the Alleghany during discovery and due diligence? I am baffled.
