Invasion at Forty Mile

Which came first, the chicken or the feds?  •  A few years ago my youngest daughter and I decided to drive the Top of the World Highway, which runs from the Alaska Highway near Tok in Alaska to Dawson City in the Yukon Territory. The border crossing is at a tiny town named Chicken, population about 17, depending on the time of year.

The road splits at Chicken and the Taylor Highway goes north about 32 miles following the Forty Mile River to Eagle, a small town on the Yukon River. The drive to Dawson City is beautiful and we had a great time, but we had to stop for awhile in Chicken when my daughter’s chronic illness caused her some problems. We were in Chicken long enough to know there is nothing but wilderness anywhere in the whole Forty Mile area. It is impossible for the inhabitants to have any secrets.

There are miners who hold placer mining claims along the Forty Mile. They sluice for gold only in the summer months and most of them bring their wives and children to help with the work. There are clean water regulations that the miners must follow so they don’t pollute the river and the State usually has agents out checking the mining sites and settling ponds once or twice a summer, just to make sure only clean water is released back into the river. The agents travel alone and carry arms for safety against bears and other critters. Once in awhile a miner might be cited for a minor infraction, but it’s no big deal, and the miners and agents have traditionally had a good relationship.

At the end of August, 2013 miners and their families were startled when at least 6 or 7 heavily armed Federal agents dressed in combat gear, including body armor, driving military vehicles and wearing large police signs began showing up at their mining sites, looking and acting as though they were ready for battle. Over several days they searched around cabins and outbuildings, threatening and trying to intimidate the miners and their families, who were totally mystified by the visits.

The miners called Alaska State Troopers and the Governor’s office demanding to know what was going on. The Governor called the EPA and was told that the State Troopers had asked for help from something called the Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force because of “rampant drug and human trafficking going on in the area.” The Troopers said they knew absolutely nothing about such a request, nor had they ever heard about such charges. The Troopers denied they were involved in the raids at all and said the harassing agents from the Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force came from several different federal agencies, including the EPA.

The Alaska Dispatch reports that Alaska’s lone US Representative, the Senators and the Governor have looked further into the matter and demanded an explanation from the EPA, but to date no response has been given.

Alaskan’s are angry over this matter, and anyone who has ever been to Chicken and Eagle can only wonder how “rampant drug and human trafficking going on in the area,” could possibly be a reality. Where would the trafficking come from and where would it go? I mean, attempt to haul anything through or hide it in the Forty Mile? Get real.

The Cliven Bundy matter in Nevada is another ratcheting up of domestic militancy by the EPA, the BLM and other federal agencies. All done with blessings from the top of this ruinous regime.

Chicken came before the Feds, but they just want it gone. • (1148 views)

    Law enforcement agencies have become increasingly militarized with the wind down of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. There is no good reason for the Feds, much less local departments, to have armored vehicles and some of the weapons which they now have. One cannot help but wonder is it all part of a master plan.

      Of course it’s part of a master plan! In order to usher in the New World Order the United States must be brought down. To bring down the United States her citizens must be subjugated, her economy and industry ruined, and her military must be made ineffective against her enemies, both foreign and domestic (the Obama regime especially has been working diligently to accomplish this despite the big talk and saber rattling.) Especially domestic; freedom loving Americans are in the process of being redefined as enemies and they must be disarmed. The thing about these evil effanbees is that they are focused, persistent, and patient. Their symbol is the turtle and they have been at this for over a century.

      Seriously, those who don’t see it are either in league with these evil creatures or they have their heads buried in the sand. A lot of Christians of the nambie-pambie “nice” and the left leaning “social gospel” varieties of the modern era just don’t think that anyone with a suit, tie, and nice smile can be that awful. It’s time to get real! If there weren’t evil in the hearts of men then Christ would never have had to come and His sacrifice would have been for nothing.

    One aspect of leftist rule is that it involves waging war on the recalcitrant citizens (including those who merely might be) of the country. This is why the death toll of Communism was so much higher than the death toll (within their own countries, at least) of Nazism and Fascism. It’s quite clear that many big city police forces (which act at the behest of their liberal mayors) and the feds are increasingly influenced by this far-left attitude, and are preparing accordingly.
