From JAMES LEE
It is important to understand that the much bigger picture game is all about opening up the North CA corridor for mineral and timber extraction:
“What rarely gets mentioned is that the Willits bypass is part an ongoing series of Caltrans projects designed to open up the California North Coast to large trucks, thereby creating a through loop to foment the development of Humboldt and Del Norte counties (where these trucks are currently banned). The best we can hope for is an informed citizenry willing to stand in the way of bulldozers poised to do irreversible damage to a pristine valley once the deal-makers have provided the project with legal cover.”
GREG KING President, Siskiyou Land Conservancy.
This is verified by the recent sale of the Press Democrat to local politico’s who have deep interests in mineral and timber extraction:
“As reported this morning, the Press Democrat has been sold by Florida-based interim owners Halifax Media Acquisitions to a group of local investors, including lobbyist and developer Darius Anderson and former North Coast Congressman Doug Bosco.
Other key players in the purchase group include Steven Falk, former president and publisher of the San Francisco Chronicle and chief executive of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and Bill Hooper, president of Anderson’s development firm, Kenwood Investments, and a former executive with Clear Channel Outdoor, the billboard advertising company.
Darius Anderson has a long history as a high-powered lobbyist for companies like PG&E, Station Casinos, Pfizer, Microsoft and Catellus, and has worked for Clint Eastwood and been a fundraiser for Gray Davis. In 2010, Anderson was fined half a million dollars in a corruption probe. He currently wants to build a $30 million boutique hotel off the Sonoma plaza.
Doug Bosco is another beast entirely, and could wield the type of political influence over the Press Democrat that many of its newsroom writers may not like. With ties to the Savings & Loan scandal and, as a congressman, implicated in the check-bouncing scandal, Bosco is a behind-the-scenes powerbroker with deep interests in gravel mining, timber and development.
His close friend, Eric Koenigshofer, is the attorney for the redwood-clearcutting Preservation Ranch project in northwestern Sonoma County, and appears to have Fifth District Supervisor Efren Carrillo in his back pocket. Anderson, in fact, interned for Bosco in the mid-’80s, and another one of the “Bosco Boys” (yes, they have a cutesy name) is Robert Bone, responsible for the infamous race-mongering 2010 campaign mailer against Pam Torliatt.”
This is also what the ‘Smart train’ coming now up to Cloverdale and eventually further North is also about. The rails are being laid to accommodate commercial traffic. It is part of a grand UN Agenda 21 overall ‘Smart Growth’ agenda being directed internationally into every region to control all resources and people.
Make no mistake. The U.S. is ‘in play’ as for far as natural resource extraction through our water, natural gas fracking, mountain top removals, forests and minerals to now feed other country’s needs for their consumer growth. Where we were the consumers, we are now being used for consumption to be the fuel for other country’s growth and debt exploitation.
What we have been doing to other countries for over a century to support our consumer lifestyles, has now come home to roost. Globalists owe no loyalties to any one country and protestors and activists in Willits would be well advised to understand who and what much larger agenda they really are fighting against.
A critical read is a book written by Rosa Kloire’s excellent expose of what is going right here in the North Bay and beyond titled, “Behind the Green Mask, UN Agenda 21″
