While traitors prosper, none among them dare call it treason

We are the Dragons guarding the Treasures.
On the Imperative of Defense of Private & Public Property rights against Federal Attack
We are obligated to disallow, deny, and stop acts of hostility & violations of Civil Rights,
Civil Liberties, and National Security by the BLM + Forest Service by making public:
1. Charges and evidence of improprieties;
2. Charges and evidence of misconduct;
3. Charges and evidence of misappropriation of funds by failing to
perform services;
4. Charges and evidence of failing to protect the lands and resources
from damage and Unauthorized Removals of resources;
5. Charges and evidence of Failing to Deny Haven & Sanctuary to
Criminals and Terrorists;
6. Charges and evidence the BLM & Forest Service are Knowingly
Providing Haven & Sanctuary to Criminals & Terrorists;
7.Charges and evidence the BLM & Forest Service are Knowingly
Providing support to criminals & terrorists;
8. Charges and evidence that the BLM and Forest Service have
illegally denied Public Use of Public Lands by acts and omissions;
9. Charges and evidence of illegal interference by the Forest Service
and BLM with Public possession & control of Mining Claims;
10. Charges, evidence, and testimony that the President has stated
his intention to continue to deny security in the border zone pending
Comprehensive Immigration Law Reform passage.
 {Effectively abandoning residents of the “Gun-Belt” to their own self-defense, security, and
means to safeguard our resources, our water supplies, our wildlife, our
recreation opportunities, our Right to Gather on Public Lands, and most
importantly, to control the Legacy of The Mineral Estate Grant of 1866, the actual
source of all future wealth, and the foundation, the substance, behind any future
national currency and pride.}
Therefore the summary charge is TREASON.
Only unconditional surrender shall preclude subsequent declaration of WAR.

“Criminal FEDS OUT OF Arizona!” “We shall close the Border and Damn the
Cartel members on both sides, right up to their presidents, watch us!” It’s the TRUTH.

“We are the dragons”… the explication.
Despite all those who think the old ‘strike it rich’ days of amateur
prospecting were over long before ‘Treasure of the Sierra Madre’ was
color-ized, and despite the fact that many Norde Americanos cannot
operate a Geiger Counter, there persists a large and growing number of
True Believers who know they are not delusional dreamers with a
Gambling-on-Nature obsession. Somewhere between the valley of despair
and the peak of lusty greed are undisputed real deposits of mineralogical
legend, and some newly recognized sources of mineral wealth. Foreseen
140 years ago, the people’s reserved mineral estate was intended to
remain in the people’s control, for their benefit and welfare. It was also
wisely conveyed in 1866 to the people for that purpose, not sold or given to
corporations nor to government. Today, the wisdom of that Mineral Estate
Grant is patently obvious, with so much visible corporate control of corrupt
government -resulting in an intolerable looting of the Treasury, regardless
of the law, the Constitution, or Private Property Rights. When Corporate
greed conspires with political predation, we and future generations are
deprived of the basic sources of water, wealth, prosperity, and subsequent
Noble it has been, to preserve and protect our freedoms, our
liberties, and the resources of prudent peoples, as it still is, to revolt
against the predations and usurpations of corporate and government
special interests and their actions which have not been authorized by
representations of the people’s will. I have promoted the ideas vindicated
by law, practice, and precedent; I have fostered the understanding of such
principles in practice; I have participated in research intended to bring
unfair and prejudicial mismanagement of Our Mineral Estate into the light,
with plans and programs incorporating solutions into my reports*.
*{Appearing in the WAR360 Blog titled “From the Desk of Frank Lavoie
concerning the Legacy of the Mineral Estate Grant of 1866.”} Since 1981,
I have advocated for appropriate recognition of what may be called
“Artisan” specialty mining, or “Small Mines”, which means the overlapping
legal gray area of amateur recreational mineral “production”, and small
commercial operations making “No significant surface impact”; if you think
historic ‘pick & shovel’ digging, that’s included, along with backhoes and
bulldozers, drilling and blasting, and small scale quarries or mines, too. It
does Not include corporate, industrial classic hole-in-the-ground mines.
We are the Dragons…
The un-grasped irony is in the lack of adequate perception of the
nature and extent and value of the dispersed deposits of special and rare
minerals. Many professional mineralogists, geologic specialists &
researchers, as well as huge numbers of serious mineral collectors and
real gem hunters & miners, as well as the enthusiastic public beyond the
five million active ‘rock-hounds’ and gold seekers know, (without the
occasional public TV reminders that strikes of significance are still being
made) there are major, known deposits of valuable minerals & gems which
are still potentially very productive. But we also know that for too long the
Federal Government, while showing huge favors to corporate mining, has
been constructing an unjustified mountain of obstacles & red tape to block
citizens and families, groups, clubs, and new partnerships of ambitious,
die-hard unemployed who want to be miners run their own businesses.
We, here, now, share with others an open-minded ability to see the
opportunities and legacy outlined here. We may differ in our estimates of
how gigantic the resources are, and what methods we will employ to utilize
them most prudently, but we can little afford to overlook the threats to Our
control of our own wealth, health, property and resources, our rights and
liberties, independence & freedom. Some of you, even those not
considering themselves as prospectors, miners, mineral collectors,
adventure guides, or wilderness camp residents, can still see clearly the
critical battleground for private property rights and feel strongly inclined to
choose the peaceful path of self-reliance over the instability of city life.
A life ‘underground’ off-the-grid is better than an uncertain future
underwater, with diminishing freedom. We support the choice and
encourage those who choose to be self-empowered by exercising
Homestead Rights; That the Public Lands are for Public Use, possession,
and occupancy, residency, and personal use.
“OK, Mr. “President” where’s my 40 acres and a mule? I want to start
working right now! I’d don’t need no stinkin’ job, I have skills I want to put
to use right now, so stop stopping me! I don’t want no part of you nor
your corporate enslavement schemes. I will only work for myself and my
family, not to fund some criminal war. I will no longer accept “NO” for an
answer. I will not wait until tomorrow. I shall use my freedom while I still
have any, to get what I need, to save what is ours, and to protect it for my
We are the Dragons…part two: “Survival of the Free-est Minds”
“While traitors prosper, none among them dare call it treason.”
On first blush, licensing & permitting of crafts & trades like medicine
and electricians would seem simply to protect ‘amateurs’ from poisonings
and electrocutions. But there is great weight to the contrary view that such
licensing & regulation, for the most part unenforceable, also prevents a
majority of reasonable & prudent citizens from teaching, learning, and
practicing the wisdoms and survival skills and truths that all have a right to
know. A license did not prevent Blackwater from electrocuting soldiers in
their showers in Iraq. It prevented those ‘outside’ the ‘trade’ from knowing
enough to see the mistakes and the danger, from being competent enough
to avoid the fatal consequences.
The net result is an artificial and corrupt scheme which channels and
restrains the distribution of information, limits access to and practice of
informed consent, fully informed juries, peer review of science, or inventive
advancement impacts on obsolete knowledge & practices. Everything is
diminished by obsolete government- that is to say government which exists
without most of its prime directive + mission of empowering advancing and
protecting Self-governance (individual, not collective) being accomplished,
is illegitimate and failed.
Not everyone can be a doctor, but all of us Are our own doctors. Not
everyone can free their minds, but all of us have free will. Wisdom is the
Universe’s Gift, free for all, but Humanity must GRASP it.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Why are we here, but for those who have gone before
us, and for those yet to be; for those who cannot be here, now, with us, doing what
only we can do; we have chosen Not to Waste our own futures nor that of others. We
have gathered here, for many depend upon us, not to ‘Praise Caesar’ nor make
theater. The vision of our mission is clear. WE deny haven & sanctuary to criminals
and terrorists. We deny safe passage to smugglers, slave traders, and WMD’s. We
stand together unafraid of cowards or cartels, establishing peace by protecting and
defending all innocent citizens from harms, injuries, and predations allowed by both
corrupt governments. How? By stopping the political betrayal & entrapment of a
fraudulent border. We defy an Executive Order to leave the border open, seeing it as
a continuing terroristic extortion in exchange for compliance and acceptance of
‘amnesty’, for a block of votes…for corporate cheap labor kickbacks…
It is TREASON we have no obligation to tolerate.

We are the Dragons…part 2 “Survival of the Free-est”
Veterans like myself can attest to frustration in owning a business but being
constrained from attaining certain growth & success by unreasonable unnecessary
government red tape -permits, tax forms, hiring documents, insurance…there is a very
long list of obstacles. It’s even more aggravating knowing that the only effects these
laws regulations and requirements accomplish is an artificial restraint of trade, honest
trade, while failing to affect the dishonest or effect protection of a trade or business. In
the collapsing of corrupt governments and visible signs of rising rebellion, many sole
proprietorships, regardless of solvency, liquidity, or stability in a free market, are
prudent to reconsider how to continue, to survive, much less thrive under current
conditions. {Not to mention when schemes being imposed reach our front doors.} It
should be no surprise, then, despite ignorant mis-characterizations and oversimplifications,
that some form of anarchy is underway, independent of that structured upon simple resistance
or tax revolt. The prevailing notion of “WE don’t need no stinkin’
badges.” has resurfaced, but this time as a joyous choice: that if we merely shrug off
our own self-imposed limitations, and STOP playing along with or cooperating with the
schemes of “license”, “permit”, and relegating responsibility to the state or other
‘regulatory agency’, if we merely state: ”I am an unlicensed contractor” or make such
honest disclaimers, we begin to be free to succeed!
As an independent miner, I’ve been advantaged by productive land and the
proximity of the largest annual mineral industry trade show at Tucson, AZ. But this year,
producers, dealers, and artisans have been concerned by the uncertainties of the
market and the economy, and Tucson’s ability to support the venue. Recent news has
not been encouraging for the 2011 show, and little time remains to make major
adjustments. What optimism remains has little energy to be applied to counter the
controversies now troubling Southern Arizona. We may have a solution for a few
domestic mining businesses. Our mining camp is very near the border, consequently all
the illegals and smugglers passing through are in a great hurry to get far beyond there –
going Northerly to get far away from the border. Though our camp is relatively secure,
we have had but a few guests. We have shown that we can establish a presence
without conflict, and the smugglers, upon detecting the highly visible encampment, have
avoided us wherever we go. For the ambitious, the brave, and the enthusiastic, the
secret has leaked out: Amethyst Ranch is The Strike Worth Defending.
Loyalty & commitment & earnest efforts offered may be as welcome &
valuable an investment as any we may consider. We issue Joint Venture
Agreements. We have many years of production ahead to share. We are a
very private mining operation protected by trade secrets, proprietary data,
and ground-penetrating radar proven analytical prospecting methodology.
Timeless Mining Company has a production record of 20 tons in 35 years.
Check out: goldrushexpeditions.com as an example of what we envision.
And: BickelCamp.org as the format we could use for public adventure prospecting expeditions and
guide service after the change of government.
We have top references. Consider joining us. AmethystRanch@gmail.com
