My friends and relatives have all said I became a miner because I can talk a rock to death, and here I go again.
I appreciate your posts very much, sometimes I scare myself doiing what I am doing, so I need all of your support.
Windbreaker always says I have a lot of courage but he is wrong. I am doing what I am doing with a lot of fear and trepidation but I am going to keep right on doing it because it is the right thing to do. I could not live with myself if I wimped out, now. We have not won the fight yet, but we have made a difference, and we kept me from being put in federal prison by Hector. Now what am I going to do with that property in Mexico? I say, "we" because I have had a lot of help.
Mailman, the best way to explain why it always appears like the AAC program is a BLM program when it is not is to ask you to do a DOI Partnership Program search, and ask you to pay particular attention to what the BLM is allowed and not allowed to do concerning their partnership with their civilian partners. Lin Gum described them to me as independent contractors. He said they are not BLM employees. The BLM is writing said they did not know exactly what the AAC volunteers did but they thought they were the same as the Adopt-a-Highway volunteers of various highway departments. The BLM did not know who they were exactly but thought they were a group out of L.A.
That is the beauty of this well organized fraudulent scam. It is made to appear to be a BLM program but it is not. All of the AAC's are made to appear as if they are now BLM owned abandoned structures and claims, but they are almost all still privately owned miner's homes and valid legal mining claims. At that 2005 meeting you posted the link to Mailman, (Thank you for posting the link) Hector said the BLM only owned the deed to the Dawson Mead AAC's, that means the rest of the 100 or so were all privately owned located on underlying valid miners claims, in 2005.
This well organized racket is accomplished by civilians dressed in BLM apparel impersonating federal agents doing official agency taking of the miners property work, under the color of authority. At that meeting Hector and Steve both admitted the AAC program had not been in compliance with the laws since it was invented in 1989. Hector said he knew the volunteers had been out there for years but he had not paid much attention to them. He said he knew they had turned all of the area miners property into AAC eminent domain public use property by just assuming all of the area miners had just abandoned their valuable property and that had become a problem for the BLM. Hector said he did not even know where any of their AAC projects were located. He said he just funds their efforts and showed up occasionally to show his approval. Steve said the volunteers called him occasionally and told him what they had been doing and he would say, great. They were giving a speech about the AAC program because they were trying to get the DOI appointed members to codify it as a legal BLM program due to the successful efforts of this civilian way of taking the miners property away from the miners. Hector said he wanted to take this AAC method of taking property nationwide.
There is not any way possible for the public to find out the AAC program is a scam. They are told it a civilian volunteer effort to protect and maintain historic miners cabins and sites, that are now public property on public land, abandoned years ago when the miners claims played out. The public cannot find out they are really miners private homes on their currently active but idle claims, because the volunteers give them new fictitious claim names.
I challenge all of you to call the Ridgecrest, Ca. BLM field office after picking out ten AAC's to inquire about. Ask the BLM to tell you what the lEXACT legal underlying claim name and CAMC serial number really is. Ask the BLM to send you or show you any document to prove the AAC program is a legal Congressionally mandated, DOI authorized, listed on the Federal Register, BLM program. You can do a FOIA request if they will not tell you, but if they won't tell you, ask yourself what they are trying to hide?
We all know what shameless arrogant braggarts they are. If the AAC program were legally a BLM program the BLM would boast about it all of the time and certainly would not want to deny it. If the BLM owned any of the miner's homes and claims they would proudly prove it to you, not refuse to prove it. The BLM would have the documents to back it up.
If any of them were legal the BLM would be posting BLM information about them on their own BLM.gov websites.
Instead the AAC's are all heavily promoted for tourism on privately owned websites which they also use to maliciously slander the miners and their property to garner public support for their taking of the miners property. I am currently being slandered on one website this week where my property is being promoted for tourism as the White Swan, BLM, AAC, today. Mail fraud internet fraid, newspaper fraud and several other public media, all makes this public scam possible and so easy to pull off.
The BLM has spent a great deal of effort to prove to me and others, this AAC program is a crime commited by civilians. It appears the BLM and the County officials are helping them out by being derelict and complicit, by aiding and abetting and covering up this crime. Why would the BLM spend so much time convincing the miners that we are a victim of a crime instead of a BLM taking of our property, a civil matter, if it were not true? If innocent people like you or I went out on a miners claim and started a hotel and public recreation mining business in this area we would be arrested immediately. Hector proved he knows it is a criminal use of a mining claim because he charged me with this crime.
I disagree with a major portion of the IBLA's decision and have 60 days to file an appeal. in fact I have just a few days to make up my mind which way to go next. If I file a BLM wrongful taking of my property civil case against the BLM it might fall apart because neither the BLM, The Volunteers or I can prove it is a legal BLM program. That is the only way I could be compensated with any money for my losses. If I continue to pursue my Justice Department Rico Act criminal investigation and wait for the outcome, I could see charges brought against all that have and are involved with the AAC program, including the volunteers. That way I would not be financially compensated for my loss unless my attorney will pursue a combination civil and criminal action.
I have to make up my own mind before I talk to the Attorney again.
Unless the BLM admits a BLM taking of my property and settles with me immediately, I think I will pursue this as a criminal matter and forfeit my chances of receiving financial compensation for my losses. I think the civilian individuals and groups of volunteers and a few BLM officials would look better all dressed up in the same prison blues they wanted to put me in. What do you think?
I would appreciate any imput.
I will take Shifting Sands advice and try to answer your other questions over a period of time instead of answering them all tonight. I apologize for all of the typos.
