NY Times' article concerning gold mines reopening in California

posted on Feb 12, 11 01:54PM Use the IP Check tool [?]

California is run by a pack of environmental sicko freaks. Anyone that has a question about that should access the website of the Original Sixteen to One Mine Inc. at http://www.origsix.com to read about their horror story in the forum section. The State once attempted to convict the company and its president and mine manager of manslaughter charges for an accidental death in the mine some years back. Prior to the unfortunate accident, the fed's were in the mine days earlier and deemed their operation safe by their standards.

The California Central Water Board is as unfriendly to these folks as they could possibly be for issuing numerous citations lacking intelligent justification. One reason for writing the mine so many tickets could be that their salaries at the agency are solely dependent on fees derived from so-called infractions of their rules book. Anyway, the story is on their website in detail.

Some time in the future, the bureaucrats in Sacramento will get-it that rejuvenating the gold mining industry is in their best financial interests. Holding up the Idaho Maryland Mine from reopening for so many years does not speak well for increasing the State's revenues, getting people back to work and thus pumping in some additional money to a continuously contracting State economy where the State's unemployment numbers far exceed the nation's average.

The State needs to get educated on what is possible if they are to escape bankruptcy with some help being extended to them by supporting their own mining industry. The solution is to talk to the government in Quebec, follow their receipt for success in assisting mining companies to grow and prosper which has resulted in keeping a lot of folks working who in turn keep those local economies vibrant. There is no better example of what is possible than seeing how Agnico Eagle grew to such a large international company by the support provided to them and other miners by the Quebec government in making available a friendly mining environment combined with appropriate and intelligent environmental safegards.

Hot off the wire this morning from the International Forecaster.com:

You might ask why did all this happen in Tunisia and Egypt? It was a distraction pure and simple and an expensive one. The elitists behind the scenes are trying to find a way to deal with the eminent collapse of the municipal bond market as hundreds of municipalities choose bankruptcy. Newt Gingrich, neocon Bilderberger, wants to pass legislation to allow states to go bankrupt. That would allow the states to dispense with all or part of their pension and benefit obligations changing their financial obligations dramatically. The concept is horrible for people("squeeze the people") who worked all their lives for a pension.

The freshmen “Tea Party” representatives have just given the elitists a staggering blow; this group defeated the permanent passage of legislation to make the Patriot Act permanent. Obviously the elitist money machine was unsuccessful in buying them off. We at last see a glimmer of hope that the people’s voices will be heard. Washington may be changing, but we’ll have to see what the future brings.

The Fed continues to buy all the new Treasury bonds and others in circulation. This is a policy that cannot continue indefinitely because it will lead to hyperinflation. Europe has similar problems. The healthier countries have pledged $1 trillion to rescue the spend thrifts. There is a problem, as we sited last May, and that is that they are going to need $3 trillion plus to accomplish rescue - a sum that will bankrupt solvent European states and bring depression to the entire region. Yes, China and Japan have ridden to the rescue in an effort to dump Treasuries and buy the euro bonds of Greece, Portugal and Spain. This is an exercise in futility. Do the Chinese and Japanese intend on coming up with $2 trillion? We don’t think so, and if they did, by selling treasuries, the US dollar would collapse. Another short-term stopgap measure doomed to failure.

I see that the New York Times has a story on the reopening of California mines (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/11/us/11gold.html?_r=1&emc=eta1), but sadly no mention of the Sixteen to One.

If anyone is still wondering how genuine the political machine touting "Environmental Concerns" is, look no further than the rejection from both the entrenched machine in Washington of the Bam admisnistration's lack of response to the Original Sixteen to One Mine president Mike Miller's open letter to engage deregulation, to next, the entrenched political machine in Sacramento snipping the gut from a request to state-regulated-PG&E's ability and therefore deliberate refusal to engage in independent energy development in our rural community in Sierra County.

WHY? (Read below to get caught up to speed.)

Allow me to bring the new reader up to speed in a short synopsis:

As recently as the first of this year, the Obama administration (BAM) decreed an alledged allegience to "De-regulation" in a spurious attempt to mask such a decree with a pseudo-face-of- concern to all entities affected.

HUH?? (Yes, but is was all crap rhetoric...)

So, in good spirit supporting the administration's announcemnet, Mike Miller wrote a classic, heart-felt and truly genuine letter to the President (posted beloe for everyone to read) engaging such discourse, asking specifically for the current Administration to please engage with the Original Sixteen to One Mine in this endeavor by assigning an Emissary to the task, to work in the directive specifally addressed by the administration. Hopes were high. In the name of the administration following through on its promisary decree and actually to make headway against the ongoing oppresive regulation imposed by unnecessay regualation literally stifling jobs, specifically in a remote rural county in which jobs are essential to the small guy, the answer was.....

wait, there's more....


No response. Nada.

Likewise, an overture to CA state-regulated utilities in which Mike Miller on behalf of the Original Sixteen to One Mine to develop a pelton-wheel independent electric energy source, akin to the oft environmentally aware concerns of those who promote wind energy...were summarilly dismissed by PG&E due to the imposition of regulatory fees (ahem, excuse me which I choke)...and the net result is a blattant and predictable outcome:

No. Nope. Nada.

"Yeah, taxpayers suck. All they ever do is get in the way of letting our government take care of us. Especially the rich...all they want to do is make us poor people poorer while they by more yachts and private jets and stuff. It's a good thing that Obama and Jerry Brown are in there. At least they have their stash. Republicans suck."

Sacramento has ruined it for everyone

From Saturday's International Forecaster:

In California, Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown, wants to raise taxes like Illinois has, but those terrible Republicans are blocking him from doing so because any tax increases must be approved by the taxpayers. As you are aware Fed Chairman Bernanke has ruled out bailouts for state or local entities. In addition, elitist Newt Gingrich is pushing for legislation to allow states to go bankrupt. That means all or part of pensions and benefits will be wiped out. If such a bill looked like it was being passed, munis and state bonds would again collapse for fear of default or partial default.

The Water Board is like the SEC for its ineptness, go after the little fish and let the sharks swim away.

"Laws and restrictive regulations are imposed that are so convoluted and impossible to navigate that the little guys are strangled in endless red tape. But the bigs slip through specially designed loop-holes or are politically protected and left alone."

Today, the Fed continues in ruining the value of our money like it has always done since its inception in 1913. The Fed is a private banking organization that has been gutting America's wealth for nearly 100 years led by its largest shareholder, J.P. Morgan Chase.

One champion in the defense of the American people was Lewis T. Mcfadden. Learn more of what Mr. Mcfadden thought of the Fed in his speech to Congress in 1932:

Just discovered this website, http://www.coininflation.com which provides real time metal values of all U.S. Coins. Below are values some folks might be interested in:

Description Face Value Silver Value

1942-1945 Nickel * $0.05 $1.6440

1916-1945 Mercury Dime $0.10 $2.1137

1946-1964 Roosevelt Dime $0.10 $2.1137

1916-1930 Standing Liberty Quarter $0.25 $5.2843

1932-1964 Washington Quarter $0.25 $5.2843

1916-1947 Walking Liberty Half Dollar $0.50 $10.5687

1948-1963 Franklin Half Dollar $0.50 $10.5687

1964 Kennedy Half Dollar $0.50 $10.5687

1965-1970 Half Dollar (40% silver) $0.50 $4.3214

1878-1921 Morgan Dollar $1.00 $22.6002

1921-1935 Peace Dollar $1.00 $22.6002

1971-1976 Eisenhower Dollar (40% silver) ** $1.00 $9.2403

These are the cold hard facts that the managers of our current fiat system do not want you to be aware of.

The pennies that were minted from 1909 to 1982 which are 95% copper and 5% zinc are today worth 2.8 cents each. This difference might not seem much but $1000 worth of them is valued today at $2,807. Stephen Leeb some months back projected the copper price into the future to increase by 10 times. Today, copper is $4.25 a pound.

I have to agree. These Alaskans are real Wankers. I have worked with miners for over forty years and never met someone so stupid.

I have been intrigued by the new series on discovery channel called "Gold Rush". While watching, I have noted that these TV personalities are that pursuing the dream of finding placer gold in Alaska are pretty much wreckless in their ways. My question is: how can they broadcast these idiots completely destroying this land, wrecklessly shooting local wildlife and aimlessly digging these huge holes with no active plan or assessments to locate pay dirt. Seems like Mr. Miller is consistently and repeatly abused by are "wonderful" state for things (water tests-Kanaka creek) that occur naturally yet these guys in Alaska have no rules. Hmm!

The biggest scam in government today is of regulation. This gives it the lever to outright steal from companies, not their buddy-buddy bankers and the connected industry giants, but mainly from the populace.

Government today represents a crime syndicate.

The following is the real news:

$2tn debt crisis threatens to bring down 100 US cities.

Overdrawn American cities could face financial collapse in 2011, defaulting on hundreds of billions of dollars of borrowings and derailing the US economic recovery.

Nor are European cities safe – Florence, Barcelona, Madrid, Venice: all are in trouble

Elena Moya
guardian.co.uk, Monday 20 December 2010 17.58 GMT

More than 100 American cities could go bust next year as the debt crisis that has taken down banks and countries threatens next to spark a municipal meltdown, a leading analyst has warned.

Meredith Whitney, the US research analyst who correctly predicted the global credit crunch, described local and state debt as the biggest problem facing the US economy, and one that could derail its recovery.

"Next to housing this is the single most important issue in the US and certainly the biggest threat to the US economy," Whitney told the CBS 60 Minutes programme on Sunday night.

"There’s not a doubt on my mind that you will see a spate of municipal bond defaults. You can see fifty to a hundred sizeable defaults – more. This will amount to hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of defaults."

New Jersey governor Chris Christie summarised the problem succinctly: "We spent too much on everything. We spent money we didn’t have. We borrowed money just crazily. The credit card’s maxed out, and it’s over. We now have to get to the business of climbing out of the hole. We’ve been digging it for a decade or more. We’ve got to climb now, and a climb is harder."

Bluejay is spot-on. Please read his post below, as this is relative to that.

At the bottom, Bluejay shows us the elephant in the room, and is bold enough to say it. There is a blattant attempt to re-fund the broke California government's economy (NOTE: not the economy in general, their BOOKS) by seizing private assets through state-sponsered corruption, harassment, politically motivated lawsuits and thug-pressure; and it is all being supported by a corrupt judicial system. THIS IS SERIOUS and no longer just speculation.

The Original Sixteen to One Mine is a convenient target, since the powers in the state government already know that a corrupt bench is in place, aka the previous CDAA crap.

They are forging ahead, figuring no-one will stop them. All my comments (on the Which-came-first topic) regarding the fact that suing this company will do nothing more than shut it down, is the direct evidence. Make them prove what they are charging the mine with is something they won't do.

They know $millions won't do crap to change anything in the watercourses up in the Allegany district. They also know that the mine has no money...so putting everything together, we can only arrive at one conclusion: THEY ARE BANKING ON A CORRUPT JUDICIAL OUTCOME.

One way of stopping them is to of course publically expose their motives...but best to put in place a motion in advance (in legal-ease there must be a term for it...lawyers please help out here) that will mandate that if a judgement is corruptly rendered in the A-hole's favor, that they must adhere to the constraints they are insisting upon. Since they won't be able to, they will have no grounds to procede.

In other words, prove the specious nature of their actions. Even the State of California can't change geology.

The question for California is, how much longer can lawmakers keep kicking the can down the road until they have to face reality? There will become a day when the life will be choked out of their ability to continue borrowing to save their precious little jobs.

When debt can no longer be serviced the State will be on its way to imploding requiring massive layoffs foreseen in 2011, just to start. Did these overpaid incompetents along with their overzealous regulatory bodies stacked with their friends ever think that their absorbitant incomes and benefits from sucking the financial blood out of the companies and citizens of California would ever end?

Of course not! They just wanted the money party to go on forever. Well, now they're going to get what they deserve while forcing citizens to pay along with them. These people are clearly the real terrorists and they should justifiably be looking over their shoulders when California is ultimately forced into bankruptcy with severe deflation and depression to follow.

The worst investment for a person to hold or imagine buying into is California Municipal bonds. If a person has a financial death wish, this is for you.

In the end, unservicable debt will be the match that lights the fire, BANKRUPTCY. A new system or a new currency, historically speaking, will require a gold backing to get started again. Is there any wonder that the State is licking their chops at the thought of stealing the gold assets from the shareholders of the Original Sixteen to One Mine, Inc.?

Their plan has been in effect for a while now. Attacking owners of gold assets in the State is part of it. Closing down the waterways to gold sluicing was another. This is on-going confiscation with stopping others from getting their hands on the gold with more for them later.

It seems that there's someone with a little smarts behind the curtain in Sacramento that has figured this all out: Gold has to be in the final equation to pull California out of the cinders following its expected financial bust or even, Washington's. Who knows, will things get so bad that States break away in groups and form their own regions or countries? If this happens, California's in the ground gold becomes that more important for its future rebuilders.

Think it can't happen? Think real hard again. Expanding debt has aleady passed the point of no return. The only real question that remains
is, when will the implosion take place and how SEVERE will it be.

Where are we headed?

Below are comments from Doug Casey and a few from Richard Russell on the second day of the Casey's Gold and Resource Summit held in Carlsbad on October 3, 2010.

After talks by Bud Conrad and Eric Sprott, it was almost comic relief to hear Doug Casey speak on “Stupidity, Evil and the Decline of the U.S.”

Doug began by making a distinction between America, which came into being as a wonderful, liberating idea, and the United States, which is just another country - formerly known as the land of the free. But now there are regulations on everything. So much so that, as Doug puts it, “everything not obligatory is prohibited.”

To help make the point visually, and to the enormous delight of the attendees, Doug calmly extracted a cigarette from his pocket and lit up. In public! You can guess whether anyone dared tell him to put it out.

He boiled the serious side to his presentation down to this: Planet America is being circled by the twin moons of evil and stupidity and neither is conducive to healthy politics or economics.

The reasons for such a state of affairs are threefold, in Doug’s opinion:

1. We’ve lost our philosophical anchor. We no longer exhibit courage and initiative, nor are capable of producing more than we consume.
2. Concurrently, we’ve developed a reflexive belief in the power of government to solve all our problems.
3. Fear is the driving emotion among our middle class, which is shrinking, desperate to hang onto what it still has, and prey for any demagogue who comes along and speaks in the right kind of code.

There is no quick fix for this.

But the market cares nothing for fixes, quick or otherwise. It imposes consequences on the actions people take. Party for decades like there’s no tomorrow and there will be a hangover when tomorrow finally comes, as it must.

Just ask another investment legend, Richard Russell, who also spoke today. Richard began publishing his top-ranked newsletter in 1958. Since then, he’s seen it all. And he described our collective tomorrow with a single word: austerity.

“Get used to it,” Richard advised. ”And if you want to survive it, get some gold.”
