Land And Water U.S.A.

Thursday, September 16, 2021



Dear Governor Polis,


As you're well aware, Colorado's Water is being grossly manipulated to generate unjust enrichment for some while significantly harming others, including Senior Water Rights Owners. 
You must take action now, to right the wrongs and stop the harm!
Here's how: D
emand state's water engineers administer water in Prior Appropriation, and withdraw Colorado from the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program (PRRIP).

The PRRIP is the gorilla in the middle of the room that's never mentioned in water meeting discussions. And it only gets about a sentence in the Colorado Water Plan.

Perhaps one of the reasons why? In 2005/2006 Lower end (Junior) of S. Platte River claimed, “upper end (Senior) took our water, caused depletions, now we don’t have any water.” Junior muscled in and denied Senior use of their property. This is known as “takings without just compensation;" aka stealing.

Senior Rights Owners were *wrongfully ordered to augment at 100% (unattainable) and make up for depletions going back to 1975.

This order to make up past depletions going back to 1975 begs the question: Where were the water engineers during that 30-year time span? If they were in charge of “administering” water rights owners’ property, shouldn’t they be held accountable for the so-claimed "past depletions?" 

Despite junior's "no water" claim, Governor Owens amazingly “found it" in 2005/2006. Enough  to commit to Nebraska.

How and where did Governor Owens suddenly find water Junior claimed didn’t exist?

Flow charts show S. Platte River historically dried up around Kersey, CO (depending on snowpack/precip).

Because of the wrongful shut down of Senior Water Rights, the whole upper end of the S. Platte has been overhydrated to such extent the new perennial instream flow is powerful enough to push - then lose thousands of acre feet water across the border to NE. 

The overhydrated high-water table is growing a new underground reservoir the size of which is known only to those developing it. Some speculate the reservoir could exceed the Ogallala. That info must be made public. Most of that water was stolen and should be returned to its rightful owners.

The PRRIP is NOT a compact! 

It's a five page agreement (with a withdrawal clause)  signed by Nebraska Governor Heinemann, Wyoming Governor Freudenthal, Colorado Governor Bill Owens and DOI Secretary Dirk Kempthorne. They bypassed state’s general assemblies.

PRRIP agreement is structured in ways that if CO can't make the Water delivery, it has to make the financial delivery.
PRRIP violates Colorado's Constitution because it commits state’s assets, “water,” and indebts (financial commitment) Coloradans without their vote.

If Owens had had any concerns for Colorado Water Rights Owners he wouldn't have gotten into the PRRIP; or at the least he would have structured it as forgiving as the 1923 NE/CO compact (based on 1897 flow rates/precip and snowpack).

We have reason to believe the PRRIP is the "carriage vessel" that moves this new instream flow to the Colorado/Nebraska border, where corrupt entities peel it off and sell it to power plants, cites and so on. 

The fact that CO does not have extra water is the main reason it needs to withdraw from PRRIP!

Administration of water according to “First in time, first in right,” must be done to correct the non-historically high-water table along the S. Platte River basin, stop property destruction, and return water to its Rightful Owners. 

Governor Jared Polis please:

1) Demand state’s water engineers administer water in “Prior Appropriation.”

2) Withdraw Colorado from PRRIP.

Thank you.

*wrongfully: Throughout the WAS case, Judge Roger Klein reminded everyone that "senior/vested/valid/pre-existing" Water Rights Owners were to be "exempt" from augmentation and the well shutdowns. Whoever executed WAS ignored Judge Klein!

Wars were/still are fought over property – Land and Water.

Since the beginning of man, there are those humans who lust to “control” all Land and Water.
Because Resource Industries need the lion’s share of Land and Water, to produce gas/timber/mineral/oil and Food, the attacks against Resource Providers have been ongoing for years!  

Today, the majority of our populace is so disconnected to Resource Providers they sincerely think “government” - not farmers, ranchers, roustabouts, fishermen and loggers - feed and fuel them.

Land and Water thieves have lied and indoctrinated good people into thinking Resource Providers are subsidized and greedy for using Land and Water. This makes it easier for the thieves to steal Land and Water.

China – with its New Silk Road (aka One Belt One Road) plan, is fast becoming one of the biggest entities on earth to seize control of "the earth!"
China knows that to “control the Water, you control the people.” And that is their goal.
One way Joe Biden’s facilitating China’s goal, is through “takings without just compensation” (aka THEFT) like his “30X30” plan, and COVID. He also shut down domestic resource production while supporting foreign production. 
Congresswoman Diana DeGette is constantly threatening “takings without just compensation” with her “designations” this and that. If she spent her time cleaning up her 1st C.D. (City and County of Denver) instead of trying to seize control of rural property, maybe Denver could return to being a clean, safe, family friendly city again.

Not only should rural people protect their property, urbanites need to too.  Particularly with the homeless and illegals invasion. Socialist mayors, representatives and governors are seizing control of rural property, so it wouldn’t surprise if they allow the homeless to squat on your urban lawn, then demand you forfeit it.

Four tools you can use to PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY!


P Post No Trespassing signs with this exact language. It may not stop the thieves, but I guarantee they will slow them slow considerably.
No Trespassing   Trespassers will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. No immunity for criminal trespass by government parties.
Go to your local sign shop, give them this verbiage, pick out the size, material etc. then post one by every entrance to your property.

22) Keep a stack of Private Property Admittance Agreements  by your door and have each person who wants to access your property fill out and sign one. Private Property Admittance Agreement (

33) If the person is a government employee, they MUST fill out and sign a Public Servants Questionnaire.  THE PUBLIC SERVANT QUESTIONNAIRE (

4) If you get wind of any action (historic, wolves, piping plover, fish) that you have good faith belief will jeopardize your Property, get names! Get the names and addresses of each person who’s a signatory on said action and send each – as an “individual” (not the Corp) a “Demand to Remove Property References” letter.


“If Government could take your property, they would have done so years ago.” Dr. Angus McIntosh

Here's a starter list of ways government – with their NGO partners – is trying to STEAL your Property.
Conservation Easements, Endangered Species Act, Monument Designations, WOTUS, Wolves plantings, historic/most precious this and that, excess feral horses, float your river, sage grouse corridors, wind energy hubs, climate change, COVID, illegals invasion…
Federal does not own the water. They have to acquire it in ways equal to the way we have to do it. But they will bully you into thinking they do.
The Army Corps of Engineers do not have authority over any water in the U.S. that is not “Navigable” - as pertains to the Commerce Act. But they will bully you into thinking they do.

Use the right words: Anytime you hear someone use the wrong word, correct them! Using incorrect terminology makes it easier for the thieves to enlist the public as partners in theft!
Here’s some: 

There’s no public land in America. It’s FEDERAL (split-estate) land. There are Private Property Ownerships on Federal Land. 

There are no wild horses in America. There are though, “feral” (estrayed) horses.
There are Prairie Rats – no prairie dogs.
Claims that the earth is getting warmer and due to manmade actions are completely inaccurate!
The only ones denying that the Climate Changes (mainly due to the sun) are non-scientists like Al Gore. Every scientist on earth knows that the Climate Changes and has been doing so since the birth of the sun and climate.
Over 30,000 scientists’ findings differ from Al Gore’s “man makes global warming/climate change” claims. Instead of arbitrarily giving Al the power to control your life through his lies, you should demand he debate any one of the 30,000 scientists or shut up! He’s wrong. The scientists are right. He’s stealing. They’re not. Get it!!  
States West of the 100th Meridian are under Spanish – “first in time first in right law.”
States East of the 100th Meridian are under English -or “Riparian” law.

Remember the Doctrine of Retroactivity and Prospectivity. 

The most important words to look for are: 

Vested, Pre-existing, Valid, Senior.

Those rights have NEVER been extinguished!

If you’re called to testify, go to a meeting etc. DEMAND they provide a surveyed map identifying each property they’re talking about. Do not accept generalities!
What the thieves always do, is bring the public in on “real estate deals” having to do with property they don’t own.

Respective of Water, PLEASE find every paper (ranch ledger, abstract, shares) you can, that identifies your “exact beneficial use of water” claim!
If you “choose” to sell your shares, sell your Consumptive Use (CU) and delete any “dry up covenant,” language so you can retain and use the margin between CU and Allotment Quantity (AQ).   
If you choose to sell your AQ, then that’s the end of your use!

Hopefully this brief overview will remind you that you have “Vested, Valid, Pre-existing, Senior” rights that are backed in statute!

Don’t hesitate to demand they “show you the statute” they claim gives them the authority to bully you. Then make sure you ask them to fill out a Public Servants Questionnaire.

Because Entity did not seek written consent or permission from Owner for admittance on and or any use what-so-ever of Properties, Owner considers Entity may have arbitrarily engaged in unlawful trespass.

Entity’s alleged Reports have already harmed Owner by creating a nuisance that is needlessly- possibly intentionally - disturbing, violating, and encumbering rightful usage, creating a financial burden, and placing a cloud on Properties.

As Owner whose Properties, income and business, are now negatively harmed by Entity’s alleged Reports, I am providing this Demand to Remove Property References to serve as my formal demand: Entity must remove, erase and delete any and all references of Properties from any and all materials generated by, or utilized by Entity, potential affiliates or representatives (contracted or volunteered), within thirty (30) business days of receipt of this letter (Sent certified with return receipt form 3811.).

In keeping with my State and Federal Constitutional rights to acquire, possess and protect my Properties, I, the undersigned as Owner, hereby demand Entity file a certified letter with the clerk and assessor in each before-mentioned County(s), clearly affirming that Entity has removed all references of Properties from all Reports Entity and his or her allied organizations have, within thirty (30) business days of receipt of this letter.

Should Entity choose not to comply with Owner’s Demand to Remove Property References, Owner will exercise the right to remedy (includes liens and seizures), as may be appropriate and provided by law.

Should Entity’s non-compliance result in Owner having to take action to remove Properties and Owner referencing from Entity’s Reports - starting at the expiration of the forty (40) business day period, charges will be filled accordingly.

In this matter, Owner is not associated in any manner whatsoever with Entity or representatives, affiliates, and or family members of Entity. Owner has no knowledge of Entity’s specific plans or intentions. Therefore, Owner is to be held harmless and totally exempt from any liabilities whatsoever that may result or have resulted from any representation whatsoever Entity (representatives, affiliates and or family members of Entity) may have made to any persons as pertains to Owner or Properties.

 Saving pollinators from an imaginary bee-pocalypse

Honeybees are doing OK, despite varroa mites, the Covid-driven economy and other problems
Paul Driessen

A torrent of media stories from 2013-2014 presented frightening tales of “unprecedented” colony collapse disorder (CCD) among honeybees, conjuring up visions of a “bee-pocalypse” and “a world without bees,” a world in which flowers and agriculture would be decimated.
Many articles blamed neonicotinoid pesticides, while others added climate change and biotech (GMO) crops as likely culprits. Some mentioned Varroa destructor mites and various viruses and diseases as possible causes. Virtually none suggested that organic food industry chemicals could also be implicated in bee deaths. The overall tone was “deep concern,” bordering on hysteria. But it sold papers and air time.
Over the next few years, the number of US honey-producing bee colonies (hives) generally and gradually increased, though with bumps in the road. There were 100,000 more hives in 2014 than in 2013, and numbers went on a slight roller coaster in subsequent years, up and down in the same range as 1993-2012.  
A recent US Department of Agriculture honey report could ignite new concerns, especially in conjunction with recent data that show a 4% decline in US bee colony numbers: 2,812,000 in 2019 versus 2,706,000 in 2020. This time, though, the more likely cause is the Covid-driven 2020 economy
Indeed, honey production dropped 6% but honey prices rose slightly to offset some of the lower production and sales. Almond grove and other pollination revenue went down 18% and other revenues fell even more sharply. But it’s also interesting that that there were 1,000 fewer apiary workers in 2020 than the year before – and spending on Varroa and other bee disease control declined almost 30% (the same drop as expenditures on syrup and other bee food). That largely explains the lower hive numbers.
(Also interesting, four states – Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota – accounted for 38% of all US honeybee colonies in 2020, many of them reliant on canola flowers. Their honey averaged $1.60 per pound in 2020, versus $6.30 per pound for boutique honey from four states – Illinois, Kentucky, New Jersey and Vermont – that collectively had just over 1% of all US hives.)
Even more fascinating and instructive is the trajectory of US honeybee colony numbers over the past five decades, showing no connection to neonics, other pesticides or much of anything else.
The all-time-high for US honeybee hives was in 1977 (4,323,000 colonies), and it was 6% higher than in 1972. The total then plummeted 25% by 1986 – and hasn’t been above 3,000,000 since 1992. The all-time-low for US honeybee colonies was 2,342,000 in 2008 – five years before the bee-pocalypse!
It gets even harder to decipher recent bee problems when you realize that Varroa mites didn’t arrive in the United States until 1987, and neonic use didn’t begin until the mid-1990s. But US honeybee colony numbers have been consistently in the 2.5-2.9 million range, with just a few dips to 2.4 million.
Varroa mites are nasty threats largely because the American-European honeybee (unlike its Asian cousin) had no natural defenses against them. The mites bite into bees and bee larvae, feed on bee “blood,” and create pathways into bees for at least 19 viruses and diseases. Tracheal mites, Nosema intestinal fungi, parasitic phorid flies, the tobacco ringspot virus and other pests can also cause significant colony losses.
Beekeepers can accidentally kill entire hives, trying to address such problems, but professionals have become much better at getting treatments and doses right than have most hobbyist beekeepers.
As their name suggests, neonicotinoid pesticides are derived from synthetic nicotine. Some 90% are applied as seed coatings that dissolve and get absorbed into plant tissues as crops grow; they target and kill only pests that feed on the crops. Neonics also largely eliminate the need to spray with other insecticides that can easily harm bees and other beneficial insects. These innovative chemicals have nevertheless been targeted by anti-pesticide groups, and by organic food producers that themselves use various crop-protecting pesticides that are harmful or lethal to honeybees and wild bees.
Among those organic farm chemicals, pyrethrin neurotoxin pesticides are highly toxic to bees, possible human carcinogens – and no longer derived from flowers, but synthetically manufactured. Nicotine sulfate can partially paralyze bee wings and legs, and can be poisonous to humans. Copper sulfate is highly toxic to bees, deadly to fish, bio-accumulative in soil and water, and all-around nasty.
Changing agricultural and land-use practices, also play a role, including more houses, factories and highways replacing flowering trees and open fields of plants that provide pollen and nectar for bees. 
However, when they see lurid photos of dead bees, people should understand that bees have very short lives. Exactly how long depends on their species and sex, the climate where they live, food availability, overall bee health in the hive – and what time of year bees emerge from their cell.
Queen bees can live 2-3 years, even 4 years or more; they lay up to 2,000 eggs per day. Male drone bees live several months during warm weather, but die after mating with a queen, because their reproductive organs are ripped from their bodies in the process! Female worker bees live only 4-6 weeks, because foraging for food takes them miles every day and wears their bodies out quickly; they live up to 20 weeks in the winter, when their job is keeping the hive warm.
Average honeybee colonies hit peak population counts of 50,000-60,000 in June – but those numbers plummet rapidly in autumn, as flowers disappear and cold weather sets in. So dead bees in and around hives is normal (but excellent fodder for fear-mongering).
As to “colony collapse disorder” (sometimes called “disappearing disorder”), major bee die-offs were reported in Ireland as far back as 950 AD! The first recorded US case of worker bees suddenly abandoning hives full of honey occurred in 1869; researchers reported 25 significant bee die-offs between that one and 2003. The causes are unknown, but die-offs are not unprecedented.
Of course studies have purported to demonstrate the toxicity of neonics. But many were conducted in laboratories, using doses and application methods that bear no relation to what farmers do or what bees experience in the real world, where they might encounter neonic levels in pollen and nectar measured in parts per billion or trillion: the equivalent of a few seconds in 32 or 32,000 years, respectively.
Multiple field studies – in actual farmers’ fields – have consistently shown no adverse effects on honeybees at the colony level from realistic exposures to neonics. In fact, bees thrive in and around neonic-treated corn and canola crops in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and elsewhere.
So it was highly surprising that a 2017 article in the respected journal Science claimed that two years of field studies in three countries showed exposure to neonicotinoid pesticides reduced the ability of honeybees and wild bees to survive winters and establish new populations and hives the following year. The article generated a fury of I-told-you-so declarations from the likes of Greenpeace and Pesticide Action Network. But it’s no longer available online. 
Perhaps that’s because, as I explained in my own detailed assessment, the authors violated multiple guidelines for scientific integrity. Not only did their own data contradict their primary claim; they kept extensive data out of their analysis and incorporated only what supported their conclusions. That’s fraud.
When all the missing and doctored data were examined, of the 258 separate honeybee statistical data analyses involved in the study, 238 found no effects on bees from neonics and 7 found beneficial effects from the pesticide! Only 9 (a mere 3%) found harmful impacts, while 4 had insufficient data.
It’s vital that we protect our honeybees, bumblebees and wild bees. But that means understanding history, science, modern agriculture and bee life expectancy – so that we are not so easily snookered by lurid tales of bee Armageddon, and we don’t do more harm than good, for the best of intentions.
