"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." Dietrich Bonhoeffer - Christian Pastor executed by Nazi Germany 1945

* KBRA / Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement

Definition of Tyranny

Siskiyou County Supervisor Brandon Criss' Newsletter, posted to KBC 4/22/14. "...a list of the broad sector of support for saving the Klamath River Dams, including county and local governments, non-profits, agricultural organizations, and the nearly 80% vote of the people of Siskiyou County.  It was important to...counter the other side’s false rhetoric that the Klamath Basin supports dam removal."

NASA Expert Warns of Rogue Geoengineers and Chemtrail Consequences; ," dprogram 4/22/14. KBC NOTE: Watch the 12 minute video. Watch the skies. Why would anyone want to modify the weather in Klamath Basin to cause a drought? Look up. The above article was sent to us by a retired EPA scientist.

Matthew 28:1-7 The Empty Tomb: "Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lighting, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men. But the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come and see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him.  Behold, I have told you."  Sent from Frank Tallerico 4/20/14

A step forward - State and local dignitaries come together Friday at Collier Memorial State Park to sign the much-debated Upper Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement, H&N 4/19/14.  KBC NOTE: This "agreement" is part of the controversial KBRA, which destroys 4 Klamath River hydro dams providing power to 70,000 households, gives $45 million to the Klamath Tribes plus land, permanently downsizes agriculture, controls groundwater, plants endangered species in the Klamath Basin........

Protesters interrupt ceremony, Not all in agreement with new water pact, and Two groups weigh in against accord, H&N 4/19/14. KBC NOTE: Siskiyou County supervisors, home of 3 hydro dams planned for destruction, oppose the KBRA/dam removal agreements, Siskiyou citizens voted against the agreements, and Klamath County voted in 3 county commissioners, the state senator and state representative who all oppose the agreements.

Klamath Tribes approve water pact, H&N, posted to KBC 4/15/14. "A $40 million economic development package for the Tribes...the Tribes also would receive $1 million a year for five years from DOI to care for tribal transition needs this year."

Freedom of speech is key when talking irrigation, by Bruce Topham, Sprague River letter to H&N, posted to KBC 4/15/14. "This is what is currently being demanded of those of us who are ranchers in the north half of Klamath County. A foreign sovereign government (aka the Klamath Tribes) is requiring that for any water settlement to be met for irrigation or drinking water for our livestock we must surrender our right as Americans to express any opinions contrary to those advocated by the Klamath Tribes..."

Protesting the vote; Klamath Tribal members demand a new vote, H&N, posted to KBC 4/15/14.

Zero acre-feet of water; East Side Klamath Project irrigators to see little or no water; idling funds also are in short supply, H&N 4/15/14. "Moxley said the newly designed pivots can reduce his irrigation water use up to 50 percent. But last week, the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) announced that irrigators, who rely on water supplies from Clear Lake Reservoir, will get zero acre-feet for the 2014 irrigation season." KBC NOTE: When Klamath Reclamation Project was built, Clear Lake was a meadow. Suckers do not live in meadows. To create farmland, water was stored in Clear Lake (meadow) to so it could be used for irrigation if needed. The U.S. government made it into a bird refuge and decided to create habitat for suckers who historically did not live in this meadow, mandating lake levels and denying access in most of that area to the public.

Difficult season ahead, insufficient water for full Project deliveries. No water will be released from Clear Lake Reservoir, H&N, posted to KBC 4/15/14

Klamath Tribes approve water pact, H&N, posted to KBC 4/15/14. "A $40 million economic development package for the Tribes...the Tribes also would receive $1 million a year for five years from DOI to care for tribal transition needs this year."

County administrator will add to bureaucracy by Gus deVries, H&N letter to the editor, posted to KBC 4/15/14. "Klamath County is currently under attack by selfish extremists confiscating irrigation water and decimating the agricultural community and county revenue...."

Young farmer making his mark - Jason Flowers, H&N, posted to KBC 4/15/14.

Matthew 26:26-29 "And as the were eating. Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body.' Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, 'Drink from it all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant which is shed for many for the remission of sins, but I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom.' " sent from Frank Tallerico 4/13/14

AUDIO - Dr. Mike Newton and Senator Doug Whitsett, begin minute 30, I-Spy Radio 4/8/14, on Science of Upper Klamath Basin ranchers being denied surface and ground water with no proof of interference to stream water, yet studies support that groundwater use enhances stream flow. What is the government's excuse? KBC NOTE: If the Upper Basin irrigator does not agree with the Kitzhaber Task Force plan, they will be denied surface and groundwater to irrigate.

Matthew 25:31-34: "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will gather before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on His left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, "Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." Sent from Frank Tallerico 4/6/14

BLM...seeks public comment (by March 31st)

Matthew 4:8-11: Again the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all of the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, "All of these things I will give to You if You will fall down and worship me." Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan.  For it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only you shall serve." Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him." Sent by Frank Tallerico posted 3/30/14

Growers of thirsty pot are under fire in drought-struck California, H&N, posted to KBC  3/31/14. "...authorities have found widespread damage, including miles of irrigation lines, propane tanks, and rat poison and other toxic chemicals that end up in streams..."
Rat poison left outside illegal pot plantations threatens spotted owls: "The (Hoopa) tribe has received a $200,000 grant from Fish and Wildlife ... to cleaning up as many as five pot plantations identified on the reservation" H&N 5/29/13
For more illegal Klamath River Basin pot crops, go to KBC News CROP page.

Irrigators have payment options for water supply, H&N, posted to KBC 3/31/14. "The 2014 Klamath Water and Power Agency (KWAPA) on-project Water User Mitigation Plan (WUMP) will pay irrigators the cost of electricity to pump irrigation water plus $20 per acre-foot..."
California's Water Market 2012: p 34 -
"Because the bulk of the environmental market requires funding, an important question is: Where does the money come from? Roughly $547 million (2011 dollars) were spent on the 4.5 maf acquired between 1982 and 2011—costing an average of $122 per acre-foot. When these purchases have been made in the short-term market (as with the EWA prior to the Yuba Accord), the average prices paid have been higher than in the longer-term agreements, such as WAP purchases for instream flows."

Klamath Upper Basin Proposed Settlement, by Erika Bentsen, March 20, 2014, Western Ag Reporter. "On March 4, 2014, the Proposed Upper Klamath Basin Comprehensive Agreement was finally revealed to the public after six months of closed door meetings with the settlement negotiators kept under strict gag orders...the wording is such that NOTHING promised to the ranchers is concrete...45 million dollars will go to the Klamath tribes to help them be "self-sufficient."...There are provisions included for taxpayers (who were not included in these private meetings) to purchase timberland for the tribes to replace the reservation they sold. In addition, there is a jobs program (Section 2.6) exclusively for the tribes "related to implementing this Agreement in the Off-Project Area," which can be interpreted to read that tribal members might be paid to monitor or enforce regulation on the privately owned land in the valley...If the landowner is found at fault, he must pay their expenses, and there is specific wording allowing the tribes to go after the landowner themselves... Ranchers feel they are being punished for doing nothing more than buying the land when the tribes sold it and continuing to irrigate it like the tribes were doing when they owned it. Unfortunately, since the state and federal government have openly aligned themselves with a sovereign nation against its citizenship, the ranchers have no place to appeal regarding this injustice..."  KBC NOTE: KBC News was told by several Upper Klamath irrigators that they were told, in closed meetings denying any media or tape recorders, that they would be prohibited from using their personal irrigation wells if they refused to sigh this "voluntary agreement."

< Robert L. “Bob” Boring, 74, passed away March 21, 2014, at his home in Klamath Falls after a short but fierce battle with cancer.

Calif. drought has migrating salmon hitching truck rides, H&N 3/26/14. "California began hauling 30 million young Chinook salmon hundreds of miles toward the Pacific Ocean in tanker trucks to save the fishing industry after a record drought left rivers too low for migration... The hatchery fish that typically migrate through the Sacramento River Delta to the sea are key to the state’s $1.5 billion commercial and recreational fishing industry, according to the Nature Conservancy" KBC NOTE: In Klamath, the Dept of Interior wants the Klamath hydroelectric dams destroyed which provide water for 70,000 homes, water storage, and fish hatcheries. They refuse to haul the fish. Here for their KBRA / Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement. The DOI fired the Bureau of Reclamation's top ethics scientist Dr. Houser because he was a whistleblower, stating that the science does not support dam and hatchery destruction

Jobless rates stagnate in Northern California, H&N 3/26/14. "In Modoc County, the rate for February was 13.2 percent while in Siskiyou County the rate was 15.3 percent. The California average for the month was 8.5 percent while the national rate was 7 percent."

Matthew 4:5-7: "Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, 'If  You are the son of God, throw yourself down.  For it is written: 'He shall give His angels charge over you,'  and, 'In their  hands they bear you up, lest you dash Your foot against a stone.' Jesus said to him, 'It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the Lord Your God.' " sent from Frank Tallerico 3/22/14.

3/16/14 - Matthew 4:1-4, "Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted for forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, 'If  you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.' But He answered and said, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' " Sent by Frank Tallerico

Tribe seeks protection for refuges; Modoc Nation members want to halt water removal, H&N, posted to KBC 3/16/14. “The Modoc Nation respectfully requests the U.S. Congress, Department of the Interior, the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife stop all pumping and irrigating off the sacred water in this refuge complex"  KBC NOTE: The Modoc Tribe, recently branched off from the Klamath Tribe in 2010. The Klamath Tribe in the KBRA agreed with the Congressional right of irrigators to farm the FWS refuge leases. The Modoc Tribe requests all water to be used for their sacred endangered suckers. FWS has built two islands in these refuges which are successfully attracting fish parasites, Caspian Terns, which eat baby fish and keep the species endangered.

FYI: Klamath Tribe's Constitution: "...
B. It shall be the policy of the Klamath Tribes to seek the return, to the Klamath Tribes, of all lands, natural and cultural resources, including minerals and water rights that become available and which were historically a part of the Klamath Tribes heritage C. All waters which originate in or flow through the Klaniath Tribes jurisdiction, or which are stored within the Klamath Tribes jurisdiction, whether found on the surface or underground, are a valuable Tribal resource of the Klamath Tribes, and are to be protected for the present and future use of the Klamath Tribes..."

BLM...seeks public comment (by March 31st), H&N, posted to KBC 3/16/14. "The document includes four proposed alternatives that discuss such issues as timber management, forest reserves for northern spotted owls and marbled murrelet critical habit, protection for older forests and riparian reserves. The alternatives offer options that would focus on providing the most acres, for example, to species protection as opposed to timber harvests...."

Letter Virginia Topham from Sprague River wrote to Oregon Water Resources Director Phil Ward who will shut off Upper Klamath irrigation wells, February 2014. "Why are we being targeted for destruction? Your own people testified that they have no way to prove that we are interfering with surface water. In the prosecution of the Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials after WWII their only defense was that 'they are just following orders.' "

Brandan Topham February Newsletter - OWRD to shut off surface and ground water to Upper Klamath ranches and farms, posted to KBC 2/23/14. "The State recently told us that they are going to shut off all of the surface water above Klamath Lake again this year....(OWRD) has decided that it will also shut off most of the wells above Klamath Lake."

Water Interference Bill, legislative update by Oregon Rep Gail Whitsett, posted to KBC 2/21/14. "....Over 130 Klamath Basin farmers and ranchers have been threatened by the OWRD to have their irrigation ground water wells shut down as soon as April 2014.  This is in addition to the same ranches having all of their surface water called on, and shut off, by the Klamath Tribes (as the newly adjudicated senior water right holder) and the OWRD in 2013. The adjudication provides absolutely no direct statutory control over ground water, but the OWRD is trying to tie the two water sources (ground and surface) together in an attempt to gain control over all of the ranch and farm lands (through their water) in certain areas of the Basin, without going through the process of defining a “Critical Groundwater Area”. OWRD does not want to go through this process as there really is not a shortage of ground water in this region..."

Before the Klamath Project was built, there were up to 30 feet of water where my farm is now. It was a navigable lake.
    Why can't we have 2 feet of water for our crops, when all the rest we pump uphill out of our closed basin into the Klamath River? The river often
went dry in the fall before the Project was built.
