Miners & Other Property Owners:
We Need You To Comment.
See guide for the very particular HOOPS the
legislature wants you to jump through.
We Need You To Protest the
theft of your water and mineral extraction rights:
Filing window appears a bit more relaxed. Make sure to
make a follow up call to confirm you comment was placed in
the committee record for meeting materials.
Do not hesitate to complain about any bureaucratic dog and
pony show HOOPS obstruction to your public comment.
To any wrongful Bill all you need to do is write an email
sent to the staff of the committee the bill is scheduled
before that says:
For the Public Record.
I OPPOSE Bill No. ##. It will adversely affect my

ON-POINT OPPOSITION TO OREGON PROPERTY THEFT
JMD to Oppose HB 2841 Promoted as
a miner's bill to guarantee consultation. It does
not. Read the Warning below and the Comment
to be filed. More importantly read the actual Bill. Do
not take merely accept what you are told.
WARNING: In the
opinion of JMD, the "mining rights" legislation
proposed to date are no good. These are merely
bones thrown to subdue miners out of their voice
and opposition. Do not be suckered into believing
anyone today knows mining law better than Congress
in 1865 to 1872. The so-called Miner's Right to
Work bill is a FAIL; We're not mere workers, We're
grantees in possession. Any mining rights bill
suggestion this session, such as the bill to
guarantee consultation appears to be a FAIL.
The only thing property
possessors need is the existing law be respected,
insuring once again we are left alone to enjoy our
property in peace, as the Mining Law was intended
File Opposition to HB 2841 which already
unanimously passed the House and is now before the
Senate Natural Resources Committee. This shows the
dangers of representatives and miners that do not
sufficiently know the law of the mineral estate.
JMD offers a solution to bring even the existing
statute more into compliance with the Mining Law.

appropriators. We need your help.
the meeting with the OWRD agency, Attorney General
Assistant could not produce valid interpretation of
the law to provide OWRD subject matter authority
over the extent of the proposed legislation. No
authority was provided to charge a fee to maintain a
water rights. Oregon Water Rights Act expressly
recognizes vested and Granted Uses such that "nothing
contained in the Water Rights Act shall be so
construed as to take away or impair the vested
right of any person to any water or to the use of
any water." OWRD position is,
essentially, That's our story and we're sticking
to it. Sue us if you don't like it.
Prepare to engage the
Committee and Legislature in opposition when the
Bill returns. Do not expect more than the
corruption the legislature evidenced when
forcing HB 2248 through despite the found frauds
or misrepresentations of the Attorney General.
If you choose not to engage to stop this in the
legislature, prepare for your unlawful takings
lawsuits or loose your granted right to water.

BREAKING NEWS: Legislative Committee
ordered DOGAMI meeting to address discrepancies with HB
2248 and independent miners upon JMD Comment. March 7, 2012,
hearing exposed Opposition to the Bill where DOGAMI had declared there was none and
Whitsett identified inconsistencies in DOGAMI's
statements. DOGAMI to respond to 13-page JMD Comment
within 2 weeks. JMD was represented from both Southern
Oregon and the newly annexed section of Eastern Oregon
presenting Mining Law a production-based information
exposing severe problems with HB 2248. The legislation
appears to be a damaging sweetheart deal model
permitting standard orchestrated by the NWMA
which will do great damage to independent miners. We
appreciate committee Reps Wayne Krieger and Gail
Whitsett for taking a keen interest in this very
important and detrimental matter.
UPDATE: BILL returned to Committee then sent without
prior notice to Ways and Means without further public
input and against the Attorney General's
misrepresentation and frauds of omission exposed in the
JMD Reply after a meeting with
DOGAMI. The Memorandum of the Attorney
Whittset ordered was required of DOGAMI to remove the
challenges to its unsupportable claim to authority and jurisdiction
brought out by JMD in its 13 page Comment did not
responsively answer to the Comment. This is a
serious and egregious breach of duty. This style
tyranny will require more than mere comments to
stop. Despite the misrepresentations of the
Attorney General, the Committee Voted 7-2 to pass the Bill and send it to
the Ways and Means committee. Despite early inquiry,
only 2 Representatives were honorable enough to
reflect the law. Notice, disappointingly, Rep.
Krieger did not stay the lawful course.
Thank you to Rep. Whittset and
Rep. Thompson for your opposition to this bill which
will advance an authority and jurisdiction the
Attorney General could not show lawfully exists
could affect mineral estate grantees, or any mineral
entryman for that matter.
JMD intends to file protests with
the members of the Ways and Means Committee, two
members of which are on the ill-fated subcommittee
passing the bill.
The Legislative game is rigged against property
owners and their right of peaceful possession. JMD
hopes you join in to protest to the Ways and Means
Committee of the open governmental theft of your
property and rights. With all due respect,
standing on the steps of the "Mable Nuthouse" will
not be enough.
