Code Enforcement Town Hall Meeting - Amador County BOS - Tues Dec 18


On December 18, 2018, at 9:00 AM, Board Of Supervisor Meeting, Chamber Hall at County Building (810 Court Street), they are having a code enforcement town hall meeting.

Come out and hear how the current system works and why it takes too long and cost too much money and what tools Code Enforcement (County) could have to make it more efficient and accountable. It will also touch on why the County should be recovering administration costs, etc (does not currently) since it is the general fund money and should go back in for public needs not just for the individual who doesn't want to obey the codes. The presentation will last around an half hour and will be open to the public afterward, We need to come forward and express our frustrations and to support code enforcement to have more tools or come out and let them know of an experience you had with the slow process. If they don't hear the public demand it, they will not change it! Come on out. It's a presentation you don't want to miss! TBD where it will be in the agenda- will update with info asap! Here is a link to the current process:

The Jefferson Messenger - Edition 23, Vol 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 23. December 8 , 2018 . Volume 2
Citizens for Fair Representation
Press Release
For Immediate Release
December 5, 2018
Citizens Decry Institutional Tyranny
“Institutional tyranny was declared lawful last week,” stated Mark Baird, spokesperson for Citizens for Fair Representation (CFR), referring to Judge Kimberly Mueller's order dismissing Citizens for Fair Representation v Secretary of State Alex Padilla for lack of standing. The plaintiffs filed suit against Padilla in May of 2017, for lack of representation and dilution of vote.
Baird went on to say, “Mueller's orders say that since all Californians are equally disadvantaged with representative ratios of one million people per State Senator and 500,000 people per each Assembly member, that there is nothing the court will do.” Baird added, “California has the worst representative ratio in the nation. Not only is California's ratio worse than any state in the nation, but far worse than most world governments.”
In 1879, the California State Legislature was capped at 40 in the Senate and 80 in the Assembly, with a population of approximately 440,000. Now, almost 150 years later with population numbers almost 40 million, the number of representatives remains the same. Baird estimates that California citizens vote has been diluted 400%.
CFR believes that Judge Mueller is commanded by Shapiro v McManus (U.S. Supreme Court) and U.S. Code Title 24, Section 2284 and must request a three judge court be appointed in any dilution of vote
case, with the reasoning that a single judge can never be trusted with the sanctity of the people's vote.
According to CFR early on in the case Judge Mueller did in fact uphold the law ordering a three judge court only to make an unprecedented decision one week later to reverse her own ruling, admitting what CFR believes to be illicit conversations with another court.
Baird said, “While Judge Mueller's actions were not unexpected, they are disappointing. CFR believes this action to be unconstitutional.” Baird further stated, “It leaves us wondering whether all it takes for oligarchy and dictatorship to flourish is a judge who will support tyranny as long as all are equally harmed by it!”
After consulting with their attorneys of record, Scott Stafne and Gary Zerman, along with their legal consultants, Alex Kozinski, former Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and Professor Steward Jay, University of Washington State School of Law, Citizens for Fair Representation decided they will enter into the appeals process.
CFR is dedicated to the proposition of representation in districts small enough that legislators will be forced to consider those who elect them, no matter their political affiliation. “And to that end, CFR will continue to fight for equal/fair representation and liberty for all California's citizens.” said Baird.
Terry Gherardi
WE MUST FIGHT!
Ladies and Gentleman of Jefferson,
As some of you may have already heard, Judge Muller has dismissed our complaint again. Although this is disappointing, it is not unexpected. This Judge has already made the unprecedented action of calling for a three judge court as commanded by the law, only to “change her mind” one week later. Further misconduct in her dismissal should not be a surprise to any of us.
I have spoken individually with each of our attorneys. WE MUST FIGHT!
No one but the citizens of Jefferson are actively doing anything to stop the institutional dictatorship in California. This court has gone on record as saying that tyranny and dictatorship are ok as long as everybody is equally harmed by lack of representation.
If we fail to fight, no one will do this for us. If we fail to gain Liberty through adequate representation, no one will just up and give it to us. There is no where to run and no where to hide from the storm that is approaching our freedom. WE MUST FIGHT!
We will appeal! Yes this Democrat Judge has made it more difficult. No one ever said this would be easy or a sure thing. We must exhaust all legal, moral and ethical avenues to regain our Liberty through adequate representation in districts small enough to ensure accountability to the people! We will file an appeal in appellate court. The judge made some rather serious procedural errors in her ruling and in her conduct. With the addition of Trump appointments to the Ninth Circuit, our odds increase.
Have faith that our true judge, the beneficent creator of the world, will smile upon the rectitude of our intentions, as we publicly pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor to secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and to our posterity. Please remember that Liberty has a price. It has always had a price. If our generation fails to pay, the next will pay their share and ours until
finally the burden cannot be shouldered by ordinary means.

If you have doubts, consider the following. Ballot harvesting is a felony in most states. Ballot harvesting was the method used by The Democrat party to win House seats in California’s conservative districts, and they consider it a great idea. Gavin Newsom has publicly stated his disdain for Second Amendment Liberty, and in fact has publicly stated his disdain for everything most of you stand for.
The Mono Party has a super majority in both houses of government as well as a socialist in the Governors mansion. Twenty-three counties went Democrat in the Governors race and 31 counties voted conservative and yet no Conservative has held a state wide office in over a decade. Fewer than half of registered voters bother to vote. Why?
Because it is widely perceived that your vote counts for nothing! Worse, it is true! Our votes have been diluted 400% since our state’s founding. We suffer under the worst representative ratio in the nation, 350 percent worse than state number 49, at one million people per senator and one half million per assemblyman. Most national governments have better representation than we do in a single state. One quarter of the people tell three quarters how things are going to be and they say if you don’t like it, get out! Free speech is now called hate speech, just as George Orwell predicted in his book “1984”. Plastic straws and cow farts are banned while illegal alien criminals murder our fellow citizens and suck our treasury dry. All with the official blessing of the rats, liars and crooks in Sacramento.....We must fight!!!
Ladies and Gentlemen of the twenty three counties of Jefferson, we are it! No one is rushing to save us from the apathy to Liberty in this state. If we want this we will have to fight for it! The appeal has already begun. Pray for strength. Have faith. Prepare for the fight that will surely follow.
Liberty or Death,
Mark Baird

The Jefferson Messenger Ed 22 Vol 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 22. November 24, 2018 . Volume 2
Thanksgiving Brought Mixed Emotions
As we all gathered around our tables this Thanksgiving, offering our gratitude for all we have, I know that thoughts and prayers were offered to those who suffered losses of family members and friends, homes and businesses and for many, their livelihood. Emotions have been high and mixed for many of us in the 23 Jefferson Counties. Great sadness is felt for the fire victims, while at the same time, anger. Anger for the many of us who have seen first hand the mismanagement of our forests and the continued failings of those elected who have bought into the radical environmentalists and the liberal left's agenda.
My anger grew even more so when I learned, that in 2016, Governor Jerry Brown vetoed Senate Bill 1463, a Wildfire Management Bill, despite unanimous passage by the State Assembly, 75-0 and State Senate 39-0. This Bill would have given local governments more say in fire prevention efforts through the Public Utilities Commission proceeding making maps of fire hazard areas around utility lines. To make matters worse, SB 1463 was on its way to Jerry Brown's desk at the same time when California was on fire.
El Dorado County is the home to many of the key environmental groups who used the courts to stop or delay timber harvest plans, as well as water and road projects, unrelated to forest lands. In 1993, Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation filed lawsuits halting a little over 60 timber sales. I remember interviewing our Forest Service Georgetown District Ranger at the time complaining that instead of his staff out managing and clearing forests and trails, they spent most of their time in the office performing environmental studies and addressing legal challenges.
Congressman McClitntock called it right when he recently said, “For decades traditional forest management was scientific and successful – that is until ideological, preservationists zealots wormed their way into government and began the overhaul of sound federal forest management through the abuse of the Endangered Species Act and the “re-wilding, no use movement.”
An example of one of the biggest scams perpetrated on the public was the Spotted Owl, and when it was revealed their numbers were not declining, I remember an environmentalist who was questioned about this responded, “not to worry, we will always find another species.”
Brown and the left continue to mount their “Global Warming” soap box. While at the same time, PG&E power lines, are once more being looked at to be the source of the Camp Fire.
In a recent Town Hall news article, Bruce Bialosky, asks a reasonable question: “If you believe that global warming is making life more challenging for forest management, then you should support proper
forest management. Otherwise,we will be left with even more intense fires.”
Bialosky furthered his research by speaking with Chris French, the Acting Deputy of Forest Service. who believes that the primary cause of the intense forest fires was that “forests are overstocked. There are more trees than 100 years ago.”
French said he would like to see more active forest clearance and clearance of the underbrush and also more controlled fires when risks are minimized. He said, “The reason we are not doing that now, is because of budget restraints.”
French added, that because of the good work the Forest Service was doing, they were spending 35% of the budget on forest maintenance and 15% on fire suppression.” At this point French stated that it was projected that 60% of their budget went toward suppression leaving fewer precious dollars for clearance.
French also noted that while doing the clearance by the Forest Service, they were controlled by a myriad of federal laws which limit their actions. These laws include The Clean Air Act, Natural Forest Management Act, The Endangered Species Act and National Environmental Policy Act to name a few. The Forest Service must put information out to the public before they do their clearance work. “They are not always questioned, but quite often interest groups jump in armed with legal briefs to stop the planned work,” said French.
This has often occurred in many of our fire ravaged counties, when trying to remove burned trees, whose timber is salvageable for only one year, but because it typically takes a year or more to go through the bureaucratic red tape and legal process, trees remain on the forest floor creating another layer of fuel.
Too many of our counties have suffered from horrific, devastating fires over the last couple of years and at one point, I remember remarking, “they are trying to get rid of Jefferson.”
There has been no greater loss than that of those in Paradise. And, there is no price that can be put on the loss of life and their overall losses of that which cannot be replaced. Fire victims can take heart that there will continue to be an outpouring of assistance and support from those in our Jefferson counties and elsewhere.
This horrific tragedy should be a wake up call to all of us who live in rural areas. We owe it to those who lost their lives to become more involved and vocal within our local communities. The Jefferson Movement offers the platform to raise the level of awareness and bring change. Remember, it all starts local and Jeffersonian's need to be the voices of reason in their local communities.

England vs the U.S. - Isn't This Ironic
When doing some research about representation, I came across something we all should find interesting. In 2010, the population of England (not Great Britain), was 53,300,000. The House of Commons members totaled 533. When you divide 53,300,000, this equals 100,000 population per representative. (This correlation between the numbers seems to be a coincidence since its fixed at 533).
Compare this to the population of the United States at 323,000,000 in 2016, with the number in the House of Representatives at 435. Dividing 323,000,000 by 435 equals 742,529, or in round numbers,
each Congressman represents 740,000. And, as you know, in California each Assembly member represents 500,000 people. It is probably safe to say that this imbalance or representation will only grow larger, in both the California Legislature and United States Congress.
So, one has to find it ironic, that we fought a war in 1776 to free ourselves from the tyranny of England for lack of representation, not to mention unfair taxation. Guess who is having the last laugh?
