Sadly, as with all groups, and we saw it in spades in 2001, there are farmers too who will try and “go along to get along.”
Now that the 2001 crisis is long past (although never truly resolved, either adequately or constitutionally), some are once again complacent.
This order, this effort just punctuates the willingness the individuals who want to destroy the agricultural and natrual resource capability of America are still fighting hard and stoill committing their tracesties, lies, illegal takings, unconstituional acts, and power mongering and marxist efforts to destroy America.
They must be fought on all fronts and the people have to come together to do so.
As with the Clinton years, under an Obama, and particularly an Eric Holder leadership, doing so will be very dangerous. We may hope that a change occurs in November like it did on November of 2000.
Although Bush was slow to act and help those who supported him, we eventually made enough impact to get him to act and the new DOI and BOR leaders ultimately came to the aid of the farmers. If Obama stays in power, I fear as we conservative, loyal to the constitution Americans protest and try to civilly protect our rights, that Salazaar and Holder would push it to violence to try and brutally and forcefully put down any such protest.
We went to Klamath without guns, in fact I wrote and distributed an email to amny, many people as I left sayoing specifically that I was leaving mine at home. But we also contacted all the militia leaders and others to be on guard and prepared in case it turned bad...because if it had, there would have been a different kind of fight ensue. I thank God and my Savior it did not lead to that in that case...but it is always possible when dealing with power hungry and power mad fanatics who want to step on the individual, unalienable rights of those standing up to defend them.
So...organnize, protest, and stand up...vote in November like our liberty and life depends on it (because IMHO, they do), and be careful and wise in this.
God grant that we can stand and thwart another effort to further erode, negatively impact, and destroy our prosperity and way of life.

The Dam Whistleblower
Our guest - Paul R. Houser
DR. PAUL R. HOUSER
Paul Houser, an associate professor of hydrology at George Mason University, told the Record Searchlight newspaper he was fired by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation after questioning the positive spin U.S. Department of Interior officials were putting on scientific studies that supported dam removal.
Klamath KBRA scientist whistleblower letter to Siskiyou County Supervisors
Dear Supervisors Cook, Valenzuela, Kobseff, Bennett, and Armstrong,
I know you are concerned about the Klamath Secretarial determination process, so I wanted to bring to your attention to an allegation of scientific and scholarly misconduct and reprisal for a whistleblower disclosure I made concerning the biased summarization of key scientific conclusions for the Klamath River dam removal Secretarial determination process.
An example of this intentional biased (falsification) reporting of scientific results by the Department of the Interior is contained in the September 21, 2011 “Summary of Key Conclusions: Draft EIS/EIR and Related Scientific/Technical Reports”. There are many other examples of integrity issues outlined in the attached allegation.
I made this disclosure when I held the position of Science Advisor for the Bureau of Reclamation. Unfortunately, as a result of the disclosure, I have faced systematic reprisal and termination of my employment. I have opened a case with the Department of the Interior, Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and I plan to file the attached scientific integrity allegation. I also plan to appeal the termination of my position to the Office of Special Council (OSC) and the Merit Systems Protection Board
I hope that this situation is of interest to you, and if so, I am hoping that you would be willing to advocate on my behalf and/or on behalf of good science-informed decision making in the Klamath Basin. I have been treated wrongly by the Department of the Interior, but m decisions about the Klamath dam removal process are being compromised by scientific integrity issues.
Best Regards, Paul
Dr. Paul R. Houser, Associate Professor | George Mason University
