Whistleblower Report – 06.28.24 – Latest Tyranny: Weaponized Water Rights

By Major Mike Gary, US Army Reserves CBRN Officer, and Elizabeth Lee Vliet MD, Preventive Medicine physician and CEO Truth for Health Foundation

As the Biden wrecking ball of “Build Back Better” rhetoric continues to dismantle and destroy what was once the finest economy in the world, local state officials are emulating the new Biden standard of “control and destroy” to make a name for themselves. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and we see that played out daily across America.

The latest comes from Idaho: Mathew Weaver, the Idaho Department of Water Resources Director (IDWR), unilaterally decided to cut off the water supply to six underground water districts in prime farm land of the state of Idaho. Mathew Weaver joins a long list of government officials who believe they are some type of God, petty tyrants ruling over pesky peasants.

It’s getting harder and harder to make a living in the US, particularly for farmers and ranchers on whom we all depend for our food supply.  Farmers in Idaho just found out in June they were shut off from water access by a dictatorial government official acting without warning, without due process, and without proper evaluation as to the potential adverse impacts of his actions. At the heart of the water rights battle in Idaho is a curtailment on water usage of 500,000 acres of pristine and highly productive farm land.

On May 30 2024, Mathew Weaver decided to issue a curtailment order to 6,400 junior groundwater rights holders who pump water from the Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer. This curtailment essentially shuts off their water usage. Many farmers are in the group 6,400 junior groundwater rights holders. Mathew Weaver abruptly cut off the water supply for the farmers with his curtailment order right after they got their crops in the ground and needed water the most to survive.

Brian Patton, deputy director of Idaho Department of Water Resources, deceptively said in a written statement. “It is surprising to us that six groundwater districts would choose not to live by the terms of either of their approved mitigation plans and subject their members to curtailment.”

What Brian kept hidden from the public is that his office arbitrarily decided to use a new and different formula this year to estimate ground water shortfalls and determine curtailments. Patton’s office decided unleashed this water shut off on Idaho farmers based on this new formula that had no public input ahead of time, and he did so with no notice and at the time they needed water the most.

Farmers were anticipating another successful harvest. That is unlikely now, since most of the newly planted crops died without critical water in the first two weeks after planting. The callousness and cruel timing of that water shut-off will have devastating effects to the Idaho farmers this season, and will destroy many farms that count on the water from the Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer.  The damaging ripple effects, however, will impact all Americans over the next few years as food scarcity escalates and food prices skyrocket.

How did this occur so suddenly to farmers who are always planning ahead? Why does the Idaho Department of Water Resources suddenly become empowered to destroy American farmers, their families and employees, and damage our food supply with no legislative oversight, no recourse, and no accountability for damage? How can the Idaho Department of Water Resources director and staff be so arrogant and heartless to the people of Idaho?

In a Department of Defense media release dated June 15, 2023, we get a possible answer to what is going on behind the scenes that explains the latest damage from the Biden Administration:

The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Industrial Base Policy (OASD(IBP)), through its Manufacturing Capability Expansion and Investment Prioritization (MCEIP) office entered an agreement with Jervois Mining USA, a subsidiary of Jervois Global Limited, to conduct feasibility studies to expand cobalt extraction in Idaho. The $15 million agreement, entered into under Defense Production Act (DPA) Title III authorities and utilizing funds appropriated by the Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, will enable Jervois to undertake mineral resource drilling that will accelerate the improved definition and expansion of currently known cobalt resources at Jervois’s Idaho Cobalt Operations (ICO) and the adjacent Sunrise deposit and studies to assess a domestic U.S. cobalt refinery. The project is a critical step in the U.S. effort to decrease reliance on overseas sources of strategic and critical minerals.”

Let’s connect the dots: Cobalt mining requires significant amounts of water. The water helps sift and separate the different minerals and materials. Water also cools the machinery that does all this sifting. Think about simple panning for gold as the water helps sift the different weighted materials. Now picture panning for gold on a large industrial scale. As the farm land gets taken over and yields to quarry operations there will be a significant amount of dust. The dust will need to be controlled with water operations.

This DoD action carrying out the political agenda of the Biden Administration diverting Idado water resource to cobalt mining appears to be the primary reason that farmers were cut off from the water they need to produce food crops.

As Paul Harvey would say “Now you know…. the rest of the story.”

But this type of flagrant government encroachment on American farmer’s rights isn’t just contained limited to Idaho.  Oregan has been battling the federal government for nearly a year. Oregan farmers are being driven out of business due to stringent water usage restrictions, which took small farmers by surprise.

The sudden restrictions are based on new definitions and interpretations of the regulations for a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO), which have been expanded without public knowledge to now include small farmers and homesteads.  This change has taken place under the Biden Administration and is tied to UN Agenda 2030. Daunting regulatory requirements for small farmers and homesteads essentially ends their independent production, ends their income, and increases dependence on government – which in fact is the long range goal.

For example, it costs tens of thousands of dollars to pay for regulatory requirements like water studies to prove your farm/homestead is worthy of a water exemption.  Small farmers cannot afford those costs. That’s why this is specifically an attack on the small farmer. Large-scale Industrial farms—owned by billionaires, large agri-business corporations and investment companies like Blackrock—have no problem paying for these onerous regulatory required studies to get their water exemptions.

Finally, the people in Oregan have had enough.  Oregon farmers have moved to join those in Idaho. This grassroots movement is called Greater Idaho and it has significant traction. Perhaps if these people can join together under the new state of Greater Idaho, they can take back their water and other rights. They can set a new precedent that “we are mad as hell and we aren’t going to take it anymore!”

Americans across this country who love liberty and our Constitutional rights should consider joining the farmers of Idaho and Oregon because these weaponized regulations and laws are being used to destroy our food supply, and that affects all of us.

The State of Maine has taken a unique and trailblazing action that serves as a beacon of liberty for all Americans: The people of Maine passed the first constitutional amendment for their citizens right to food. This needs to be adopted quickly across the other 49 states to ensure our protections to have food.

Maine’s Constitutional Amendment reads: Section 25. Right to food. All individuals have a natural, inherent and unalienable right to food, including the right to save and exchange seeds and the right to grow, raise, harvest, produce and consume the food of their own choosing for their own nourishment, sustenance, bodily health and well-being, as long as an individual does not commit trespassing, theft, poaching or other abuses of private property rights, public lands or natural resources in the harvesting, production or acquisition of food.

The last four years have solidified the damage what bad leadership is—at the local level and at the federal level.  We now see clearly why it is critically important to have people in the government who have a moral compass, who act according to the law with proper checks and balances, and who avoid actions purely for political agendas and personal gain. 

America, it is past time to stand against the destruction of our way of life, and defend the freedoms our Founders sacrificed their lives and livelihoods to bequeath to us.
