They’re Back…. Anti-Rosemont Thieves

They are at it again: Save the Scenic Santa Ritas, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Arizona Mining Reform Coalition and the Sierra Club’s Grand Canyon Chapter filed a lawsuit to stop development of the Rosemont Mine. These crooks use taxpayer’s money to steal the Rosemont property from investors of Hudbay Mineral’s Inc., who are the owners of this property. It is outright fraud to prevent mining on Rosemont without paying fair market value for the property.

These anti-public interest groups have no respect for investor’s property rights.  All they want to do is to ruin America’s free enterprise. It becomes a cold day in Hell when so-called environmentalists use taxpayer’s money to file legal claims that steal private investment. The environmentalists should be forced to pay full market value plus 15% interest for attacking free enterprise. These agencies should be forced to endure the same economic hell that they impose on publically owned enterprise like Rosemont Mine.

Where have our constitutional rights gone? It is evil, liberal concepts that erode these rights. Liberal ideology places animal rights above human rights. Liberals engage in untruthful speculation of wildlife harm even when enterprise complies with all legal environmental laws to ensure for protection of wildlife and the environment. Our national problem is that the media engages in fake news to advance wrongful liberal ideology. Liberals’ often have the support of academia to develop student protests rather than ensure that students learn marketable skills for employment in America’s free enterprise.

Enterprise is tried in the court of public opinion when being assailed by media’s fake news and ill-informed protests by a vocal minority. Rosemont Mine has been victimized for a decade and each stockholder who invested in Rosemont is individually penalized by their investment.  Real justice should financially penalize each member of the not-for-profit, anti-public interest groups that have opposed Rosemont Mine development.

Whenever I speak up on behalf of the Rosemont Mine to someone who is anti-mine and pro-environment, they are so hateful that they infer that I am some sort of an awful monster. It is a sorry state of affairs that to support a mining project that brings enterprise into the community with employment, opportunity for supporting small business and complies with established safeguards is wrongful. The arguments presented by the anti-mine liberals, borders on a lack of civility. Always present is the threat of a protest that could resort to violence on the mine’s property. Another hazard that Rosemont Mine has to put up with is the ultra-liberal San Francisco 9th Circuit Court that has a record of ruling against free enterprise.

What is needed is the elimination of federal funding of litigation instigated by not-for-profit, anti-enterprise public interest groups.  The bottom line is that the anti-Rosemont thieves want to destroy this mine and the benefits it brings to the community.


  1. what we are watching is the ‘evilization’ of the nation – the left will become a domineering left, anti-Christian left, a in your life – you will comply with our agenda and capitulate to our thought left. The nation “Mystery Babylon” while many call the US the Great Satan – Mystery Babylon will be a nation hated by all – we see the actions of this place when we look at the corruption of the left, from news to politic – right is wrong – wrong is right – corruption of all facets of leadership. A loss of moral right and wrong in day to day actions – a repression of freedoms like nothing the world has seen. It’s coming into being now.. it’s what we are watching. God Bless America – God Bless Israel

  2. The Rosemont opposition could have easily stopped the Rosemont project on a number of occasions, but chose not to. They had four opportunities to purchase the patented mining claims that make up the core of the Rosemont property in 1986, 1988, 2004 and 2005. Now they are trying to steal the property by denying Hudbay Minerals its legal right to mine it.

  3. This fight is not just about Rosemont. Groups opposing Rosemont also oppose Florence Copper, Resolution Copper and virtually every other mine proposal in the United States. This threatens our nation’s economic and national security.

    • BINGO!~ you are now speaking the truth – has ‘nothing to do with this mine’ it’s about the decline and fall of the nation. Over throw of the country – it’s all this is about.

  4. “What is needed is the elimination of federal funding of litigation instigated by not-for-profit, anti-enterprise public interest groups. The bottom line is that the anti-Rosemont thieves want to destroy this mine and the benefits it brings to the community”

    That has been the most successful tactic that the left has employed, using our money to fight for their causes.

    • The Goldwater Institute is, in case you didn’t know, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, just like the groups you criticize. Would you throw the baby out with the bath water? Rules must apply to all equally, or we no longer have the rule of law –and that’s dangerous ground.

      • Just wondering – you are an old man, you moved to the remote enclave of Picture Rocks from San Francisco and are against a mine 80 miles away and across mountain ranges where there can be no visible impact whatsoever. Why are you against it? Just to say no to economic activity in the region or are you against all mining in the United States? Do you understand that your anti-capitalistic approach spreads the misery of poverty, or at a minimum, mediocrity?

  5. Get over it. Our Constitution provides three branches of government so that there are checks and balances. The courts are a place where Executive or Legislative overreach can be challenged, just as the Goldwater Institute is doing in the World View Balloon Rides case. It is one thing to support Rosemont, that is your right, but please don’t trash the Constitution while you do it.

  6. Just say NO. NO to growth. NO to jobs. NO to prosperity.

    8th poorest area? – it’s also rated 5th poorest, and Tucson is DAMN proud of it.

  7. They never left. The 8th poorest area in the nation and so proud of it. And kids, they have the backing of the Huckster who has spent you money to fight jobs and an improvement in the economy. Aren’t you proud? Thought you were.
