NOTICE OF HEARING
The Intiso Taxpayer Lawsuit is scheduled for a hearing at 9:30 AM on Thursday April 6, 2023 at courtroom 2, Siskiyou County Superior Court. The request for Temporary Restraining Order against continued funding of the KRRC (Klamath River Renewal Corporation). The court is being asked to issue a temporary restraining order pending a trial on the issue of illegal expenditure of funds by the State of California Department of Natural Resources from the 2014 Proposition entitled Water Storage and Water Quality Act. The Proposition never mentioned the largest dam removal in history of the world and specifically stated that no funds would be expended on a project which had a adverse impact on a designated “Wild and Scenic River”. The Klamath River is so designated both Federally and State. The FERC (Federal Energy and Regulatory Commission) in its voluminous EIR/ EIS specifically states in several hundred places that the removal of the Klamath Hydroelectric facilities will adversely impact the Klamath River for an indefinite period of time. No specific mitigation measures are listed for the indicated adverse impacts.

6:35 Joe Guzzardi, Progressives for Immigration Reform.
China is Perpetrating the ‘Greatest Transfer of Wealth in Human History’
Customs and Border Protection agents have identified individuals from more than 150 nations attempting, mostly successfully, to enter the United States. Among those aliens, the Chinese are arriving in increasingly large numbers.
The journey for these Chinese is thousands of miles long, costly and dangerous — one that few would willingly embark upon since their futures, once in the U.S., would be uncertain. The Chinese migrants speak little English and have limited work skills. Nevertheless, one Chinese migrant, Zhang Kiayu, began his journey north in Ecuador, then traveled through Colombia, passed through the treacherous Darien Gap where smugglers then coordinated his travel on to Panama before reaching the Mexico/Texas border. Speculation is on the rise that the migrants may be Chinese Communist Party agents. A CCP affiliation would explain who funded the $35,000 Kiayu paid traffickers.
Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. Chris Olivarez said that the spike in Chinese migrants is unusual and “very alarming.” Olivarez blamed the cartels who are, he said, running a “very lucrative business.” During February 2023, there were 1,368 encounters of Chinese migrants versus 55 during February 2022. Since October, just five months into the current fiscal year, the total has grown to 4,366.
Chinese immigration to the U.S. has a long and often turbulent history. The 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act and restrictions that the Chinese government imposed after World War II and the Chinese Communist Revolution limited migration. But after the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 removed the barriers for non-European immigrants, and after China relaxed it emigration restrictions, the number of Chinese immigrants residing in the U.S. nearly doubled from 370,000 in 1980 to 677,000 in 1990. The number doubled again by 2000 to more than 1.8 million before reaching 2.4 million in 2021. The Chinese population has continued to grow. Chinese Americans are the largest Asian origin group in the U.S., and represent the third largest origin group after Mexican and Indian migrants.
There’s an important distinction between then and now, however. The Chinese surging the border are illegal aliens as opposed to earlier waves that, for the most part, arrived in the U.S. through a legal port of entry and held a valid visa. Kiayu and the others released at the Southwest border were given notices to appear for an immigration hearing. Even if their intention is to show up, and fewer than half do, appointments are often backlogged for up to seven years. During the waiting period, the whereabouts and the intentions of the unvetted migrants, Chinese and otherwise, will remain unknown. Evaluating the arriving Chinese, some wonder if given the CCP’s quest for world domination, their government might be motivated to take advantage of the Biden administration’s open borders to smuggle agents into the U.S.
The Biden administration may play down or even dismiss the national security threat that China represents, but FBI Director Christopher Wray has a different perspective. Wray points to what the FBI calls China’s “Talent Plans” that allow its nationals with existing jobs in the U.S. “to participate in such plans part-time so they can maintain their access to intellectual property, trade secrets, pre-publication data and methods, and U.S. funding for their research.” These plans, maintains the FBI, represent a risk to universities, laboratories and U.S. businesses. Wray told a Hudson Institute audience that the FBI opens a new case related to China every 10 hours and that 50 percent of the roughly 5,000 active FBI counterintelligence cases are China-related.
China’s foreign minister Qin Gang warned of pending “conflict and confrontation” with the U.S. In turn, the Department of State cautioned against U.S. citizens traveling to China because of “arbitrary enforcement of local laws” and the risk of wrongful detention.
FBI alerts about Chinese interference in U.S. affairs are more than hypothetical. In 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative estimated that Chinese theft of American IP costs U.S. firms between $225 billion and $600 billion every year. In 2014, China stole the files of more than 22 million Americans, including the security-clearance files of everyone in the intelligence establishment. General Keith Alexander, a former National Security Agency director, has called China’s technology theft “the greatest transfer of wealth in human history.”
With red flags flying, and with the stakes at American universities, laboratories and businesses high, Biden’s indifference to the Chinese entering illegally, and virtually at will, proves his callous disregard for the nation he’s sworn to defend and the citizens who trusted him.

Jack Elam: A Character’s Life
By Dennis Powers
Jack Elam was born in Miami, Arizona (a small mining town outside Phoenix) in 1920 and lived with different families after his mother died. As a child, he earned money picking cotton, and, at the age of 12, lost the use of his left eye. At a Boy Scout meeting, another boy in a “scrape,” grabbed a pencil, threw it, and that jabbed his eyeball. With his bulging eyes and weird, immobile left-eye, this look became part of his sinister Hollywood roles.
After high school, he lived with his father, a California accountant. Jack attended Santa Monica Junior College and also became an accountant, including at one time, manager of the Bel Air Hotel. He later lied about his age for a job as an auditor with Standard Oil, which is why some bios show his age as being four years older. After two years in the US Navy in World War II, Elam worked as a bookkeeper for Samuel Goldwyn Studios, and then joined William Boyd’s Hopalong Cassidy Productions as its office controller (keeping outside clients).
Staring at small figures on ledger sheets for hours strained his good eye, and doctors told him he risked losing all sight if he continued his lucrative accounting practice. When a movie director had difficulty in arranging financing for three western scripts, Elam said he would help him without charge, in exchange for roles as a “heavy” in all three pictures. His first role then was in the 1949 short-movie Trailin’ West, in which he played a killer. The first major role was The Sundowners (1950), starring Robert Preston, which helped launch his long career.
He quickly became one of the most memorable supporting players in Hollywood, thanks not only to his near-demented screen persona but also to his out-of-kilter eyes. He appeared in Westerns and gangster films alike, and in later years played in comedic roles with the same talent. He appeared in a supporting comedic role alongside Frank Sinatra in the comedy Western Dirty Dingus McGee (1970) and with Willie Nelson in Where the Hell’s that Gold? (1988).
Moving to Ashland in 1987, he lived there until his death in 2003 at age eighty-two. He worked on movie sets from here, including different TV series (Lonesome Dove, Guns of Paradise, with other appearances as on Home Improvement), along with over 40 other credits. However, he was known in Ashland for his poker parties with locals, including if a Hollywood friend wanted directions to his house, Jack just said, “Ask anyone in town and then head up the hill.”
In 1994, Elam was recognized for his significant career in Westerns when inducted into the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. His career spanned more than four decades and ended in 1995, when he made his last appearance on Bonanza: Under Fire (with over 200 TV and film career credits)–aided by his uncanny ability to read a script once and remember all of it.
A gregarious man who enjoyed “cigars, Cutty Sark, and a good poker game,” he once described a character actor’s career: “Who’s Jack Elam? Get me Jack Elam. Get me a Jack Elam type. Get me a young Jack Elam. Who’s Jack Elam?” He was married for 22 years to his first wife (who passed away) and then 42 years to his second wife when he died.
