Letter to Senator Chuck Winder

The following letters were written by local political activist, Steve Fioravanti. Steve, and a very small handful of people in Boundary County have been working for years, to make a difference in our community. Unfortunately, it is only a handful of people who actually try to make a real, righteous impact on our community. Thank you, Steve, for your efforts.

The 2024 Idaho election season is officially underway.  Idaho Senator Chuck Winder, President Pro Tempore, has drawn first blood.  The link below will give you a quick recap on what Winder and his cronies are up to.

Each citizen of Idaho has a choice.  You can ignore this egregious behavior from this megalomaniac, which will only embolden him to continue to act as a petty tyrant.  Or, you can give him a piece of your mind.  I chose the latter and I’ve included a draft of my letter to him in this communication to you.

There is a concerted effort underway to flip our great state permanently to the Left.  The question is, what are you going to do about it?

November 19, 2023

Senator Chuck Winder
5528 N Ebbetts Avenue
Boise, ID 83713

Dear Senator Winder:

I have read your letter to my representative, Senator Scott Herndon, dated November 6, 2023. In your letter you requested that Senator Herndon apologize to all the members of JFAC regarding an article he posted.

Before I launch into my feelings over this matter, I would like to personally thank you for your past service to our country as a naval aviator. I have learned through my career that it is always best to lead with a positive before addressing any behavior that needs correction.

With that said, I would now like to address your actions. First, Senator Herndon is my duly elected representative. He has represented the citizens of our district in a very professional manner. Secondly, it is his God-given right to exercise his First Amendment. The simple fact that you are attempting to micromanage what one of our representatives can or cannot say is quite simply an egregious abuse of your position. Let me remind you that Senator Herndon is my representative, not yours.
Since my first draft of this letter, I have also learned that you have targeted Senators Zuiderveld & Lenney by removing them from their respective committee leadership positions. As President Pro Tempore, you have obviously allowed your leadership position to go to your head and you are now acting like a petty tyrant dictator.

Since we are entering campaign season, it is blatantly obvious what you are doing in your attempt to smear the good names of our elected representatives. You and the corrupt establishment running our state legislature are complicit in these crimes against the good citizens of Idaho. All one must do is look at who is filling your campaign coffer to understand who you are beholden to, and it is not the citizens of Idaho.
I am calling for your immediate resignation as you are no longer capable of upholding your oath of office. Should your conscience impel you to make the right decision and resign, I will be one of the first to send you a congratulatory retirement greeting card.

The FCC’s Epic Fail: A Monumental Letdown in the Battle Against Spam and Scam Calls


In an era where communication is king, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has proven to be the court jester of the telecommunications realm. While the FCC claims to champion the interests of American citizens, its abysmal failure to curb the rampant onslaught of spam and scam calls has left the public vulnerable and disillusioned.

The Broken Promise

Back in August of 2022, the FCC posted on their website a promise to stop the plague of spam and scam calls. That promise can be found here: FCC Promise to stop SPAM and SCAM calls.  The FCC’s promise to protect consumers from intrusive and malicious phone calls has turned out to be nothing more than a hollow pledge. Americans are bombarded daily with an incessant barrage of spam calls, telemarketers, and fraudulent schemes that the FCC seems impotent to address. The very agency tasked with safeguarding the nation’s communication networks has become a symbol of bureaucratic ineptitude.

Regulatory Inaction

Despite mounting complaints and pleas from citizens nationwide, the FCC has failed to implement meaningful regulations to stem the tide of spam and scam calls. The Do Not Call Registry, a feeble attempt at a solution, has become a laughingstock as scammers exploit legal loopholes and outsmart the outdated system. The FCC’s lackadaisical approach to updating and enforcing regulations is nothing short of an endorsement for the unscrupulous actors plaguing American phone lines.

Technological Advancements Ignored

As technology races ahead, the FCC remains stuck in a bygone era, seemingly oblivious to the innovative solutions available to combat spam and scam calls. While private entities and app developers have stepped up with creative and effective tools, the FCC languishes in bureaucratic red tape, showcasing a stunning disregard for the well-being of the American people.

The Cost of Inaction

The toll of the FCC’s inaction is not just measured in inconvenience; it’s a direct assault on the security and trust of American citizens. From the vulnerable elderly who fall victim to scams to the busy professional constantly interrupted by unsolicited calls, the FCC’s failure to act has real-life consequences. The financial losses, emotional distress, and erosion of trust are the true costs of the FCC’s negligence.

Corporate Collusion

Rumors and whispers of corporate influence within the FCC have long swirled, and the agency’s failure to address the spam and scam call epidemic only fuels suspicions. Whether it’s the influence of powerful telecom giants or a lack of will to take on the challenge, the FCC’s coziness with industry interests leaves the average citizen at the mercy of unscrupulous telemarketers and fraudsters.


The FCC’s inability to protect Americans from the scourge of spam and scam calls is a stark indictment of its effectiveness and commitment to public welfare. As citizens continue to be held hostage by the ceaseless barrage of unwanted calls, the FCC remains a toothless watchdog, failing to fulfill its duty to the very people it purports to serve. It’s high time for a reckoning, a call for accountability, and a demand for an FCC that prioritizes the interests of the people over bureaucratic inertia and industry influence. We encourage you to call the FCC and let them know that they need to do their job. Their phone number is 888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322)

Considerations Regarding War

Events are being planned to honor US veterans. While I appreciate being honored I would like to make a few comments on the misuse of our military which is responsible for so many veterans.

Eisenhower warned of the military industrial complex and his concerns have been proven valid. He said” The potential for disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” All we have to do is follow the money and see who benefits to understand why we have perpetual wars in the name of peace. We are always told of course that our military is being used to promote “freedom and democracy” when the exact opposite is true.

With the exception of Donald Trump every administration from Lyndon Johnson’s to the present has been doing the bidding of this cabal which is the military industrial complex. While I recognize that Just War principles do exist and should be followed by all Nations ,it should also be understood that since the creation of the military industrial complex the military  is used to commit legalized mass murder for the purpose of profit and control. Our recent involvement with Ukraine and now Israel is no exception. It’s War for the sake of war with no end in sight, with our Congress thumping on the Bible to justify looting the public treasury to commit more mass murder.

It’s time to say enough to this madness by letting our Congress know that you have had enough of illegal unconstitutional warfare. Foreign aid is in violation of the Constitution. Appropriating money with no congressional oversight  without first securing our borders is criminally insane.


The “First” Patriot Whistleblower, Before Snowden

In 1970, a US Army captain went rogue after he discovered that the military was conducting surveillance on dissidents across the country, thus sparking the first effort in modern times to tame US intelligence.

In 1968, almost half a century before the world heard the name of Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who blew the whistle on a US-run global surveillance system, Christopher Pyle, an Army captain who taught law at the Army’s intelligence school at Fort Holabird, Maryland, was about to do something no less memorable.

After Pyle had concluded one of his popular lectures on civil disorder, which focused on how the military could better quell riots in those highly volatile times, a military officer directly involved in such operations approached him with the request for a meeting. Several days later, Pyle was escorted into a large warehouse facility that once had been used to assemble railroad engines. In his 2006 book, No Place to Hide, Robert O’Harrow described what happened next.

“Pyle walked into the cage, where an officer showed him books containing mug shots. He looked in the first volume and saw a familiar face. It was Ralph David Abernathy, Martin Luther King’s assistant. Officers called the books the ‘black list.’”

“Outside the cage, Pyle saw more than a dozen teletype machines. The head of the CONUS [acronym for Continental United States] intelligence section told him they were spitting out reports from some fifteen hundred Army operatives about demonstrations with twenty people or more. Pyle was starting to understand how naive he’d been. He began formulating a plan. He would be getting out of the Army soon. He could tell the world about what was going on. When he joined the Army he took an oath to defend the country against all enemies, here and abroad. In his mind now, that included the Army’s intelligence operation. They turned in their security badges and left the building.”

And thus was born one of the most consequential whistleblowers of the post-World War II era.

In January 1970, Pyle, now a full-fledged private citizen, penned an article for the Washington Monthly entitled, ‘CONUS Intelligence: The Army Watches Civilian Politics.’ The explosive opening paragraph said it all: “[t]he U.S. Army has been closely watching civilian political activity within the United States. Nearly 1,000 plainclothes investigators … keep track of political protests of all kinds – from Klan rallies in North Carolina to anti-war speeches at Harvard.”

Immediately, some US media swung into action as journalists began hounding the Department of Defense and the US Army to determine the veracity of the claims. Given Pyle’s extreme proximity to the subject matter at hand, however, it soon became clear that Uncle Sam got caught with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar.

Pyle’s revelations were enough to prompt Congress, as well as a slew of litigation lawyers, to sit up and take notice. The chair of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Senator Samuel James Ervin, a self-described “country lawyer” from North Carolina, worked together with Pyle to investigate and expose the clandestine domestic spying program.

Pyle and Ervin eventually spent countless hours delivering testimony before various congressional meetings over a span of several years. The first fruit of their labors came with passage of the Privacy Act of 1974. Signed into law by President Gerald R. Ford on December 31, 1974, the legislation states: “No agency shall disclose any record which is contained in a system of records by any means of communication to any person, or to another agency, except pursuant to a written request by, or with the prior written consent of, the individual to whom the record pertains…” In other words, although the law didn’t actually stop the US Army or intelligence agencies from infiltrating civil action groups and public demonstrations, it did hamper the feds from disclosing the identities of the activists without their foreknowledge.

To this end, Pyle served as a consultant for three Congressional committees: the Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights on the Judiciary Committee (1971-1974), the Committee on Government Operations (1974), and the Select Committee to Study Government Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities (1975).

According to Pyle, as a result of those successful investigations, “the entire US Army Intelligence Command was abolished and all of its files were burned.” For his actions, Pyle ended up on then-President Richard Nixon’s notorious “Enemies List.”

Given the severity of their overall findings, however, the congressional investigations triggered by the US Army captain did not stop there.

1975, the ‘Year of Intelligence’  

On January 27, 1975, by a vote of 82 to 4, the US Senate created the so-called Church Committee, chaired by Democrat Senator Frank Church, to further examine abuses by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The House carried out its own set of investigations with the Pike Commission and the Rockefeller Commission, thereby prompting the media to label 1975 as the ‘Year of Intelligence,’ and not in a way that was flattering to the intelligence community.

Pyle lent his expertise to the ambitious Church Committee, headed by Iowa Senator Frank Church, which discovered a number of questionable, unethical and outright illegal activities by the CIA between 1959 and 1973. Detailed in a series of reports dubbed the ‘Family Jewels‘, these activities included conducting physical surveillance on journalists, amassing files on nearly 10,000 Americans connected to the antiwar movement, funding behavior modification research on unwitting subjects, and plots to assassinate foreign leaders, including Cuban President Fidel Castro and DR Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba.

The most impactful discovery made by the Church Committee, however, was that of Project SHAMROCK. Started in 1940 during World War II and running into the 1970s, the NSA was given secret authority to access all incoming, outgoing, and transiting telegrams via the Western Union and its associates RCA and ITT. At the peak of Project SHAMROCK, 150,000 messages were captured and analyzed by NSA personnel in a month. The pertinent information contained in these messages was then forwarded to other intelligence agencies, including the CIA, FBI, Secret Service and the Department of Defense. This formed the basis of the so-called ‘Watch List’ of the 1970s that included thousands of American citizens, including high-ranking politicians, celebrities, academics and antiwar activists.

The findings led Senator Frank Church to conclude that Project SHAMROCK was “probably the largest government interception program affecting Americans ever undertaken.”

Based on the recommendations of the Church Committee, Congress passed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978. Under FISA, the government is required to obtain warrants to conduct electronic surveillance against individuals from a special court. Such a warrant requires “probable cause to believe” that the surveillance target is a foreign government or organization, or an agent thereof, “engaging in clandestine intelligence activities or international terrorism,” as per a Department of Justice (DOJ) clarification.

Yet, as we shall see, even this minor legislative hurdle would prove too cumbersome for the Bush administration in its war on terror.

Privacy in the age of terrorism

The tireless work of the Church Commission was put to a test in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as US lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle were prepared to sacrifice citizens’ privacy in the name of national security. Thus, less than one week after three hijacked aircraft toppled the World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon, killing some 3,000 people in the process, one of the most comprehensive plans for conducting surveillance on American civilians and individuals worldwide – the USA PATRIOT ACT (an acronym for ‘Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act’) – was already being disseminated to members of Congress.

Arguably the most controversial part of the Patriot Act is contained in Section 215 of the 342-page document, which calls for sweeping government powers against private and public enterprises, individuals, and personal privacy. Most crucially, Section 215 did away with the requirement that the target of the records search be a non-US citizen and “an agent of a foreign power.” American citizens were now legitimate targets as well.

In the Senate, the Patriot Act passed in a 99 – 1 vote. The only senator to vote against it was Wisconsin Democrat Russell Feingold. “There is no doubt,” he declared on the Senate floor before the historic vote, “that if we lived in a police state, it would be easier to catch terrorists…But that would not be a country in which we would want to live.”

Even with this widening of surveillance powers, then-US President George W. Bush, as part of the global ‘War on Terror’ that he declared following the events of 9/11, ordered the NSA to tap the communications of an untold number of people in the US, including citizens, without the warrants demanded by the FISA court – despite the fact that between 1979 and 2005, only four out of over 15,000 warrant requests were rejected by the FISA court.

Christopher Pyle, who was still committed to his cause over 30 years after he chose to become a whistleblower, labeled Bush “a criminal” for violating the FISA law and suggested that he should be impeached.

“The Constitution says he must take care that all laws be faithfully executed, not just the ones he likes,” Pyle said during an interview in 2005. “The statute says … that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is the exclusive law governing these international intercepts, and he violated it anyway. And the law also says that any person who violates that law is guilty of a felony, punishable by up to five years in prison. By the plain meaning of the law, the President is a criminal.”

More recently, Christopher Pyle, 83, who now works as Professor Emeritus of Politics at Mount Holyoke College, spoke out on behalf of Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor turned whistleblower who revealed a massive global intelligence program run by the so-called Five Eyes, a once-secretive intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

“He’s just an ordinary American,” Pyle explained in 2013. “He’s trying to start a debate in this nation over something that is critically important. He should be respected for that and taken at face value and we should move on to the big issues, including the corruption of our system that is done by massive secrecy and by massive amounts of money and politics.”



Boundary County Commissioners & Planning and Zoning Board Flooding Boundary County with ESG Companies and Organizations

Boundary County Commissioners & Planning and Zoning Board Flooding Boundary County with ESG Companies and Organizations

Boundary County Commissioners (including former Commissioner Dan Dining), Tim Bertling, and Wally Cosart, alongside Planning and Zoning (chaired by Caleb Davis), are systematically flooding Boundary County with ESG companies and organizations. These people are only interested in their own power, and do not have this community’s best interest in their plans. If Boundary County is going to stay conservative, these people must be purged from their positions, and decent people with morals should be put in these positions. We cannot allow megalomaniacs to continue to hold positions of power in this county.

The following information proves that the County Commissioners, and Planning and Zoning (chaired by Caleb Davis), have sold out this community to the United Nations Agenda 2030, and the “Environmental, Social and Governance” (ESG). They are systematically leading us into Agenda 2030, and ESG, which is the total enslavement of Western Civilization.

Kootenai Tribe / Sturgeon Station / Sonic Drive-In

The Kootenai Tribe owns the Sturgeon Station truckstop that is currently under construction at 3-Mile. According to an official document published by the Idaho State Bar called “The Intersection of Environmental Law and Tribal Nations“, the Kootenai Tribe has officially adopted the ESG business model, in addition to other United Nations Agenda 2030 directives. This document was a PowerPoint slide show produced for an Idaho State Bar event on February 23, 2023. The following screenshots from the slideshow show some of the ESG proof, in addition to the author who wrote the slides.

Sonic Drive-In

The “Sturgeon Station” truckstop is being built with a Sonic Drive-In fast food franchise. Although Sonic has yet to publish an ESG report, they are listed in the ESG directory as a company to watch for a report from. It is safe to assume that the Kootenai Tribe added Sonic to the Sturgeon Station truck stop, in part because Sonic is also an ESG company.

Dollar General

The Dollar General store is also being built next to the Sturgeon Station. The Dollar General corporation is also an ESG company. Their Annual Report 2022 clearly outlines how they are pushing hard to promote and follow the ESG business model. A screenshot from that report can be found below.

Tractor Supply

The Tractor Supply corporation has recently been in the news for distributing livestock feed that harms animals, and causes chickens to stop laying eggs. There are several articles that can be found about this topic, from internet sources. In addition to this, it is well known that the Tractor Supply Co is dedicated to the ESG model and globalist agendas. There are several ESG documents on their website. Here are just a few:

Please, for the sake of the residents of Boundary County, share this information with everyone you can. The residents of this community need to understand how Caleb Davis (Planning and Zoning), and the County Commissioners are actively turning this county over to the United Nations slavery directives. These people are not Conservatives. They are Subversionists.

A Message for Those Who Remain Silent

by: Radicalgranny

This message is for those who remain silent!
There are many ways to speak (attend meetings-pro and cons and money and time).
When you attend a meeting, you do not have to say a word, but it gives those with whom you agree moral support. Also the price of gas is another factor for not attending, why not carpool?
Money is another issue, just give what you feel you can afford, even if it is only a small amount. several small amounts equal a large amount.
Like most of us, you have more time than money so if you can help by using the phone, distributing information or just putting a sign in your yard.
Just remember: Meekness is not a Virtue.

Voting Tabulators in Boundary County

by: Bernard Schwartz

With all the evidence coming out that voting machines’ “tabulators” are hackable, why does Bonners Ferry, Boundary Co. still use them? To my understanding, this county really doesn’t warrant them. I’m sure that there are enough people that would be more than happy to take the time to count paper ballots by hand. Why can’t Glenda Poston revert back to paper ballots.?

14 U.S. Cities Sign WEF Treaty to Ban Meat, Dairy, Private Cars by 2030

C40 Cities will mean doom for many Americans

Fourteen major cities in the United States are members of a global climate organization called the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group.” This group has set ambitious objectives to be achieved by 2030, including reducing meat and dairy consumption to zero, limiting clothing purchases to three items per person annually, eliminating private vehicle ownership, and allowing only one short-haul flight every three years per person.

The dystopian aspirations of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group are detailed in their report titled “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World.” Published in 2019 and reportedly reaffirmed in 2023, this report outlines their objectives. The organization, primarily funded and led by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg, encompasses nearly 100 cities worldwide. Among its American members are Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

Media coverage of C40 Cities’ goals has been limited. The few media personalities and news outlets that have broached the topic have often faced criticism from corporate “fact-checkers.” For instance, conservative commentator Glenn Beck was targeted by AFP Fact Check, which refuted the banning of meat, dairy, and travel limitations as “not policy recommendations.”

AFP Fact Check cited a passage from the original “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World” report, stating that the inclusion of more ambitious targets was not an endorsement for wholesale adoption but rather a set of reference points for consideration. Despite this clarification, the very term “target” implies a desired objective, which seems to diverge from the stated purpose of the paragraph.

The insistence of fact-checkers that C40 Cities’ climate goals are insincere appears less convincing when observing their gradual implementation. For instance, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced measures in alignment with C40 Cities’ 2030 objectives, such as capping meat and dairy consumption in city institutions. Similarly, the U.K. has committed to ending sales of new gas-powered vehicles after 2030, while France has banned short-haul flights to reduce carbon emissions.

In 2020, the World Economic Forum (WEF), a promoter of C40 Cities, introduced “The Great Reset,” utilizing the Covid-19 pandemic as a catalyst for a global societal overhaul to combat climate change. Critics argue that this reset is more about societal control than climate action. Notably, many globalist leaders who advocate for the environment maintain conspicuous carbon-intensive lifestyles.

The push towards zero-emissions policies coincides with increased acquisition of real estate and farmland by hedge funds and private billionaires worldwide. Paradoxically, these policies are impoverishing individuals in Western countries and eroding the middle class, thereby fostering reliance on centralized governance. This counterproductive approach also harms the environment, as wealthier nations generally exhibit cleaner surroundings and reduced resource strain.

In a parallel to Covid lockdowns, climate activists have proposed “climate lockdowns” involving restrictions on movement and potential income redistribution. Additionally, figures like WEF-affiliated “bioethicist” Dr. Matthew Liao have suggested genetic modifications to induce allergies to meat and even physical size reduction to curtail resource consumption.

Critics argue that these policy suggestions are irrational when evaluating available data. Proponents of environmentally friendly nuclear energy believe it’s a practical alternative to fossil fuels. However, Globalist climate activists often oppose nuclear energy, contradicting their stated intentions.

Ultimately, the goals of the climate coalition are anti-human. The dietary importance of meat and protein, combined with measures like banning meat and dairy, calorie restrictions, genetic alterations, and impoverishment, could negatively impact both people and the planet. It’s suggested that these policies might lead to significant harm, even mortality, for many people.


Prosecuting Attorney’s “Oath To Office” Questioned

From the Boundary County Watchman

“Prosecuting Attorney’s “Oath To Office” Questioned”

When do the PEOPLE stand up and say enough? Will Boundary County Prosecuting Attorney Andrakay Pluid do the ethical action and request someone who has no ties to Danielle Ahrens to investigate this case?

Danielle Ahrens should have been criminally charged. It is illegal for anyone to lay hands on someone else, especially when the victim expresses to stop. Mark told Danielle “DON’T TOUCH ME”. Even Caleb said “PLEASE STOP IT” and I said “STOP, DON’T TOUCH HIM”.

Idaho Statute states:

  • 18-903.  BATTERY DEFINED. A battery is any:

(b)  Actual, intentional and unlawful touching or striking of another person against the will of the other; or

This action is punishable according to Idaho Statutes:

  • 18-904.  BATTERY — PUNISHMENT. Battery is punishable by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed six (6) months, or both.
Ahrens Attacks

She never should have laid her hands on Mark Moseley during the March 6, 2023 Boundary County Republican Central Committee meeting. Regardless of what they were arguing over. We all learned this in kindergarten and as adults we need to be able to control ourselves. Danielle Ahrens has been voicing a desire to run for District 1 Representative… why would anyone vote for someone who can’t control their actions. Especially, during a stressful moment??? A leader doesn’t act like this!

This case was referred out of the county since Danielle Ahrens was related to the Boundary County Prosecuting Attorney’s assistant. Bonner County took the case and after two months the Bonner County Prosecuting Attorney Louis Marshall dropped Danielle Arhens’ charges.


Could this be because she has friends in high places?

Is Danielle Ahrens above the law?

Are her ties in law enforcement keeping her out of jail?

Would this be considered cronyism?

Someone brought to my attention how Bonner County Prosecuting Attorney Louis Marshall and Danielle Ahrens are friends. This person gave me screenshots (see evidence below) of the two liking each other’s Facebook accounts. This needs to be investigated. When Louis Marshall dismissed all charges against Danielle Ahrens, he potentially committed a crime himself per Idaho Statutes:

  • 31-2604.  DUTIES OF PROSECUTING ATTORNEY. It is the duty of the prosecuting attorney:
  1. To prosecute or defend all actions, applications or motions, civil or criminal
  2. To perform all other duties required of him by any law

Let’s look at the Idaho State Bar’s Oath:

  • “I Do Solemnly Swear That: (I do Solemnly Affirm That:) I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the state of Idaho. I will abide by the rules of professional conduct adopted by the Idaho Supreme Court. I will respect courts and judicial officers in keeping with my role as an officer of the court. I will represent my clients with vigor and zeal and will preserve inviolate their confidences and secrets. I will never seek to mislead a court or opposing party by false statement of fact or law and will scrupulously honor promises and commitments made. I will attempt to resolve matters expeditiously and without unnecessary expense. I will contribute time and resources to public service, and will never reject, for any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed. I will conduct myself personally and professionally in conformity with the high standards of my profession. SO HELP ME GOD. ( I hereby affirm.)”

Should Idaho Attorney General investigate Bonner County Louis Marshall and verify if he violated any Idaho Statutes… including 18-13 Crimes and Punishments-Bribery and Corruption?

Should the Idaho State Bar look into whether or not Louis Marshall upheld his Oath To Office?

ESG and the Death of the Automobile Industry

Since the plandemic of Covid 19, automobile manufacturers have out-priced new vehicles, to the point where ordinary people simply cannot afford to purchase a new vehicle.

These price increases are mainly due to ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) policies. (See our in depth article on ESG here: ESG and the Enslavement of Everyone You Know )

The advertisement below shows the planned destruction of automobile ownership in the US:

ESG enslavement policies put businesses in the position to somehow implement and prove they are “taking steps to address environmental and social issues while improving their governance practices”.

Some of the latest ESG mandates in this industry sector are:

  • Electric vehicles (EVs): The shift toward electric vehicles has been gaining momentum in the automotive sector. Many major automobile manufacturers are investing heavily in EVs and have set ambitious targets for electrification of their fleets.
  • Sustainable supply chain: The automotive industry is also focusing on creating a so-called “sustainable supply chain” by sourcing raw materials from sources that are ESG approved, and promoting ESG practices in their supply chain.
  • Social responsibility: Automobile companies are also emphasizing their social responsibility by promoting “diversity and inclusion”, “supporting their communities” through ESG mandates, and “improving working conditions for their employees and suppliers”.
  • Circular economy: The circular economy concept is ESG mandated in the automotive industry, where companies are forced to create a closed-loop system for materials and products.

The automotive industry sector is facing several ESG challenges, which are posing a threat to the industry, in general. The ESG mandates have ended up in the United States EPA and the Department of Transportation.

Towns like Bonners Ferry will not survive, once the automobile industry goes full ESG.

The EPA and DoT have put so many rules and regulations on the automobile industry, they are unable to simply manufacture economic vehicles that are reliable. Impossible emissions requirements, sensors for everything, electronics requirements, among other things have mad it impossible to keep vehicle prices to a reasonable level. This falls in line with the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) plan for use to own nothing.

If the United States found itself in a real war, where invasion was possible, we would be helpless. All we would be left with is battery operated vehicles that could not assist in the movement of goods or people throughout the nation. All we would have left are the old, reliable vehicles that are more than a decade old.

Why are our elected officials allowing the United Nations and World Economic Forum to rule over us? This country was founded by people that were willing to die while fighting for liberty. Where are the people like that, today?


Important Notice to Those Who Receive SSI Payments

Participants in the federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program are set to receive their initial payment for September within the next 24 days, as indicated by the Social Security Administration’s calendar. On September 1st, the first of two monthly installments will be distributed due to a scheduling adjustment. The second payment, which will replace the regular October payment, is slated for Friday, September 29th. This change is necessitated by the fact that September 30th and October 1st fall on a weekend this year.

The amount beneficiaries receive depends on their filing status. For eligible couples, the highest monthly payment can reach up to $1,371. Independent filers may receive up to $914 each month, while caregivers for SSI recipients are entitled to receive up to $458 per month. However, not all beneficiaries receive the maximum payment.

To qualify for the Supplemental Security Income program, an individual must be over 65 years old and meet specific financial criteria. People under 65 can also qualify if they are partially blind or have a physical or mental condition severely limiting their daily activities for at least one year or leading to death. Children can also be eligible if their parents have limited income or savings.

Typically, recipients receive one payment per month. However, due to a peculiar scheduling quirk, beneficiaries will receive two checks in March, June, September, and December this year. This is necessary because the first of the month falls on weekends in April, July, and October, and January 1st is always a holiday. The adjusted schedule ensures that beneficiaries receive a total of 12 payments annually, despite no payments being made in April, July, October, or January.

The Social Security Administration began issuing SSI payments in January 1974, and since 1975, payment rates have been adjusted for cost-of-living increases. For 2024, the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) is expected to be approximately 3%, although the exact figure will be confirmed on October 12th based on the most recent data.

A Quick Thought on Property Tax

I recently read that there is a measure up to the Governor of Texas to end property taxes. Now that sounds like a win-win situation.
If Bonners Ferry were to consider doing this, just imagine the positive impact it would have on our community. More jobs, local businesses would boom, the school district might be able to get money for their needs, people could have a better way of life.
I don’t expect Gov. Little to ever consider doing this, but what would be the reason Bonners Ferry couldn’t do it. We pay state taxes to keep them happy.
Ask yourself, why are there property taxes anyway? From what I understand, income taxes were never ratified. Maybe a citizens’ levy might be in order?

Anyway, Id like to your thoughts…….

PRESS RELEASE From Sheriff Regarding Body Found in Grass Creek

The following press release is an update to our article regarding a body that was discovered in Grass Creek.

That article can be found here:  BODY DISCOVERED IN GRASS CREEK

Boundary County Sheriff – Press Release

On the evening of 7-2-2023, the Boundary County Sheriff’s Office received a report that human remains had been discovered in an extremely remote area of northern Boundary County.  The description indicated that the remains had been at the location for a significant amount of time.

On the morning of 7-3-2023, the Boundary County Sheriff’s Office, United States Border Patrol and the United States Forest Service responded to the area in an attempt to locate the remains.  After spending most of the day checking the area, they were unable to locate them.

On 7-5-2023, after receiving additional directions and description of the location by the original reporting person, the Sheriff’s Office and the Forest Service were able to find the deceased subject.  Due to the location and the type of items recovered at the scene, it is believed that subject reached the location by foot.  The scene was processed, the remains were recovered and later turned over to the Boundary County Coroner.  The deceased subject was not able to be identified at that time and an autopsy was scheduled.

Sheriff’s Office investigators coordinated with several other law enforcement agencies to compare evidence in this case with open missing person cases.  On 7-27-2023, the deceased subject was positively identified as thirty-two year old Christopher Benn from Spokane, Washington.  On 8-01-2023, Benn’s next of kin was located and notified of his death.

The case is active with the investigation ongoing as to the cause and manner of death.


MORE Boundary County Taxes Pushed From All Sides While the Residents Suffer

In case you missed it, at the July 17th Boundary County School Board meeting the board voted to run a bond in the upcoming November election. The measure failed last year, but they are still determined to get a new Valley View School. Board members voted unanimously to take this action and are working on a marketing plan to put before the voters (they actually believe that the reason the bond didn’t pass last year was because they didn’t market it well). Therefore, between now and the election, they’ll be resorting to fear porn (similar to that which the city of BF used to get their tax increase) – explaining that if we don’t approve the bond, the board will then propose a plant facility levy which will ultimately cost us three times more!

If that’s not enough, Boundary County Commissioners and Boundary Ambulance are considering an ambulance ballot measure in the same upcoming November election. The plan was to ask the voters for an increase to the Ambulance tax from .0002 to .0006! That’s 3 times the current rate! Thankfully, it was brought to their attention that according to the statutes they are ONLY permitted to increase the rate to .0004. And it’s not clear yet whether they will even need to have a ballot measure (no vote!). If that’s the case, the 3 Commissioners may simply be able to vote at a board meeting on whether to increase every resident’s ambulance tax. Check your most recent property tax bill. Our share is currently $135 per year and they’re talking about doubling it overnight!

Add to all of this the fact that Three Mile Water recently approved an increase in their base rate by 33%. It went into effect on our most recent statement.

As I’ve said before – when is it ever enough?! The city of Bonners Ferry already got their 1 cent sales tax increase – it went into effect on July 1st.

Each entity will tell you that it’s just a little amount, or we haven’t increased the rate in years, or it’s temporary, or we have to keep up with inflation, blah, blah, blah. The cumulative effect of all of this is killing us and they don’t care. If we do not elect the right people, we are in big trouble.

Mike Weland’s Biased Reporting

In reading 9B’s article of the continued witch hunt to keep Trump out of the running for 2024, Mike Weland fails to mention the fact that Joe Biden has also had classified material stashed in his Delaware garage next to his corvette and his son had access to them while he was dealing with China. All we heard where crickets……
Mike Weland sadly shows bias in his so called journalistic ability or reporting. (but them again, we all know it) It is again sad to see that some people won’t see the direction our country is headed now, in relationship to where we were 2-3 years ago. At least we were respected then, as we are not now. Hummm

Trump Billboard

“It’s time for the billboard to be changed” says one of the local residents and Trump haters in last week’s Herald. Well, I disagree. The correct time to remove the billboard identifying this as Trump country is when the owner of the sign wants it removed and not a minute before. It’s a private sign owned by a private individual on their own private property and expresses sentiments of their own which no one else has to agree with. As a matter of fact no one even has to read it.

The right to freedom of expression as well as the Press is another one of those pesky God-given rights that those heroic soldiers of the American Revolution fought and died for. And by the way they ended up with a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy as the author states. While inappropriately praising democracy as being the reason the United States turned into the greatest country in the world he conveniently ignores the fact that it was the most fraudulent election in recorded history. ie. dead people voting, non-existent people voting , illegal aliens voting, ballot box stuffing ,ballot harvesting, polls remaining open long after election day and the list goes on and on and on.

It’s a small wonder then that more than 70% of the Republicans and at least 30% of the Democrats  agree that it was a stolen election. To believe otherwise reminds me of the man who was caught in a fond embrace with the maid. He turned to his wife and said “Now are you going to believe me or are you going to believe what you saw?” I think we should all believe what we saw. Has anyone ever noticed that it’s always the lovers of ” democracy” who are the first to become lovers of fraud when things don’t go their way?



The Most Terrifying Risk to the United States Utilities, Tech Corporations, and Department of Defense Agencies (It is NOT Russia or China)

The Most Terrifying Risk to the United States Utilities, Tech Corporations, and Department of Defense Agencies (It is NOT Russia or China)

In my 19-year career, as a high-tech consultant, I have had unprecedented access to the Operational Support Systems that manage and control the IT infrastructure of several government agencies, and Fortune 100 companies based in the United States. My role, on several occasions, was to architect, deploy, and integrate Operational Support Systems (OSS). On several occasions, my role was Configuration Management Architect, and/or Systems Analyst.

OSS is a set of management systems and tools used to manage operations capabilities of organizations. OSS is an integral part of the larger Telecommunications Management Network (TMN) framework, which encompasses both OSS and Business Support Systems (BSS).

The primary functions of the OSS is to monitor, control, analyze, and maintain network infrastructure, and other systems that provide services to an organization. These systems play a critical role in ensuring the smooth functioning of the network and delivering high-quality services.

Key components and functionalities of Operational Support Systems include:

  1. Fault Management: These systems monitor the network for faults and issues, identifying potential problems and alerting the network operations center(s) (NOC). It helps in quick detection, isolation, and resolution of network failures and anomalies.
  2. Performance Management: These systems monitor the performance of network elements and services, analyzing data, and ensure the network operates at optimal levels. It helps identify bottlenecks and areas for improvement.
  3. Configuration Management: OSS tracks and manages the configuration details of network devices, ensuring consistency and accuracy of configurations across the network.
  4. Inventory Management: These systems are used to to manage inventory of network resources, including physical equipment, logical components, and software licenses. It helps with capacity planning and resource optimization.
  5. Security Management: These systems handle security-related aspects of the network, including access control, authentication, and authorization, to protect the network from unauthorized access and potential threats.
  6. Service Fulfillment: These systems are responsible for service activation and provisioning, ensuring that new services or modifications to existing services are deployed correctly and efficiently.
  7. Service Assurance: This involves monitoring and measuring the quality of services provided to customers, ensuring that service-level agreements (SLAs) are met.
  8. Billing and Accounting Integration: OSS often interfaces with BSS to ensure accurate billing and accounting for the services used by customers.

By streamlining and automating various operational tasks, OSS helps reduce operational costs, enhance network performance, improve customer experience, and accelerate the deployment of new services. It plays a crucial role in managing the complex and dynamic nature of modern telecommunications networks.

Network Operations Center (NOC)

Network Configuration Management Systems (NCMS) are software tools or platforms designed to help IT professionals and network administrators efficiently manage and control the configurations of networking devices within an organization’s network infrastructure. These systems play a crucial role in ensuring the stability, security, and proper functioning of the network.

Configuration Management is the process of provisioning the configurations of all of your network devices across an entire organization, such as Cellular Companies, Electric Utilities Companies, Department of Defense Agencies, the DISA SIPRNET, or any other critical infrastructure provider.

Here’s an overview of what network configuration management systems do:

  • Configuration Backup and Versioning: NCMS captures and stores the configurations of network devices, such as routers, switches, firewalls, and load balancers. It maintains version histories of these configurations, allowing administrators to roll back to previous configurations if needed.
  • Centralized Management: NCMS provides a centralized interface from which administrators can view, modify, and apply configurations across multiple devices throughout the network.
  • Configuration Change Tracking: The system tracks all configuration changes made to network devices. This audit trail helps identify who made specific changes and when, enhancing accountability and aiding in troubleshooting.
  • Configuration Compliance: NCMS helps enforce network compliance policies and standards by verifying that configurations align with predefined templates or security best practices. Non-compliant configurations can be identified and corrected promptly.
  • Configuration Automation: NCMS allows administrators to automate configuration tasks using scripts or templates. This automation saves time, reduces manual errors, and ensures consistent configurations across devices.
  • Real-time Monitoring: Some advanced NCMS platforms offer real-time monitoring of network devices. They can detect configuration changes made outside the system and alert administrators of any unauthorized modifications.
  • Change Management Workflow: For large organizations with multiple administrators, NCMS often includes change management workflows. This process helps control access to configuration changes, ensuring that only authorized personnel can modify critical settings.
  • Disaster Recovery and Rollback: In the event of a network failure or breach, NCMS can facilitate rapid disaster recovery by restoring configurations to a known, stable state.
  • Reporting and Analytics: NCMS generates reports and provides analytics on network device configurations, helping administrators gain insights into the overall health and performance of the network.
  • Integration with Other Systems: Some NCMS platforms integrate with other network management tools like monitoring systems, security information and event management (SIEM) platforms, and IT service management (ITSM) systems, enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of network operations.

Overall, network configuration management systems are essential tools for maintaining network stability, security, and efficiency, making them a vital component of any modern IT infrastructure.

The Problem

The biggest threat to our critical infrastructure is one or two individuals that have administrative access to a core Configuration Management System. One person can literally deploy corrupt configurations to every network device of an agency, on a global scale. A simple set of command scripts could issue password changes, firmware deployments, and provision corrupt configurations to the “startup and run” configurations of every network device.

Let’s take a main cellular company, for instance. If one rogue administrator with the right access decided to perform this deployment corrupt configurations, it could bring down the entire company’s ability to operate for days, or even weeks.

Years ago, I wrote several reports on this topic and delivered my findings to military officials, and security experts in the industry. One of these people was a personal friend. The whole topic was quietly swept under the rug, because no one wants to address potential problems as serious and sensitive as this.



Most of us have read somewhere or watched a video talking about threats to our critical infrastructure and how we could be attacked by Russia, China, Iran or some other villain they want you to direct your interest toward. The fact is that the biggest potential threats are from inside, and not from some external boogeyman.


The susceptibility of the United States’ critical infrastructure to attacks from within poses a significant and alarming threat to the stability and security of our nation. Specifically, Configuration Management Systems are where the biggest risk resides, if a single rogue administrator decides to initiate a planned attack. Whether through insider threats, compromised employees, or unintentional errors, the consequences of such attacks can be devastating, disrupting vital services and compromising sensitive data. Today, the lax screening processes and second-rate hiring practices have become so bad, there is a strong possibility that there are currently rogue individuals already sitting in these very sensitive, high level technical positions. To safeguard our critical infrastructure, a multifaceted approach is required, encompassing robust security protocols, continuous monitoring, proper screening process for access, and a proactive stance against potential threats. Creating a strong and reliable screening process for security, is crucial for maintaining the safety and integrity of a system or organization. Only by acknowledging and addressing the vulnerabilities within our own ranks can we fortify our critical infrastructure against the ever-evolving landscape of internal risks and external adversaries.

Idaho News Media Outlets All Run by LGBTQ+ Extremists

Hagadone is a monstrous company that owns almost 100% of the news and media outlets in North Idaho, Western Montana, and Eastern Washington. (including the CDA Press and dozens of other outlets). According to the Idaho Tribune, “The Hagadone Media Corporation owns almost every paper from Whitefish to the Tri-Cities, with some notable exceptions in Spokane, but the effect this has on the region cannot be understated. One man, Clint Schroeder, has full control over what these 16 newspapers choose to print, or not print, and his bias is showing.”

Hagadone also owns our local “news” outlet “The Bonners Ferry Herald”.

The new President of Hagadone Media Group is an extreme leftist LGBTQ+ by the name of  Clinton “Clint” Schroeder.

So, when you pick up that copy of the Bonners Ferry Herald, or read an article on their website, just remember who is behind it. There is a saying of “Trying to pick up a turd by the clean end”.
