The Stand

©2011 drkate

In a vivid dream more than twenty years ago, a woman alone in a cabin opened the door to flame-throwers, who had surrounded the place with a hill in the background.  Suddenly the view changed as the woman watched from a hidden location, as the cabin burned to ashen ruin, the boots of the flame-throwers crushing the remains. Like all the dreams of this woman during that lucid and rarefied time period, this one too, came true…

Well, this little blogger has just been crushed by the regime, a life time of work with specific, professional expertise, in an area I absolutely love, water, and, in a hugely important area for the American west, Indian water rights and water management.  Honest work.

While I am personally and professionally devastated, it is even ‘lower than a snakes belly’ to engage in this kind of economic devastation or blackmail of anyone. And, in my experience and observation, you can never mess with water and get away with it; and water is sacred to us all.

But more importantly, is a  settlement between the United States and an Indian Tribe legal if signed by an ineligible President? Is the concept and practice of sovereignty being used to mask an agenda that is ultimately unhelpful to tribal people, and to our security?

This is what standing for the U.S. Constitution has meant in my everyday life and work, and what will most undoubtedly be on-going.

I have 100% Faith in God that this is the right course, even if it is fatal to me.

…a letter to Obama, from America:

As you’ll answer it, take heed
This Slave commit no Violence upon
Himself. I’ve been deceiv’d. The Publick Safety
Requires he should be more confin’d; and none,
No not the Princes self, permitted to
Confer with him. I’ll quit you to the King.
Vile and ingrate! too late thou shalt repent
The base Injustice thou hast done my Love:
Yes, thou shalt know, spite of thy past Distress,
And all those Ills which thou so long hast mourn’d;
Heav’n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn’d,
Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn’d. ~William Congreve, in The mourning bride, 1697

    I will be ok. I am here for a reason, and will land on my feet. And, when they take everything away, they inadvertently free up a lot of time to work on taking back the republic! 😀

    • 2 heather January 4, 2011 at 9:15 am

      You are a “good and honest” American woman Dr Kate! Fear not for our Lord is always with us and walks with us daily. Ours and your faith and truth will set us all free once again.

      I feel like we are living in a time tunnel, back to the 17th and 18th century where the King and Queen of England rule, and the people are the serfs and peasants.

      I can hardly believe my dreams of this and once awake find myself seeing this before my very eyes. We The People cannot ever go to sleep again and trust any politician—we are unrepresented by the ones we have elected.

    Dr. Kate, were you working on the water rights in MT for the tribes? Or just Dakota?
    We just finished a compact with the MT Tribes that pretty much gave all water rights above and below ground back to the Tribes.
    They will be taking control of our power plants, dams, and wells this year. Putting meters on private wells and if the owner of the well refused, they will blow up the well head.
    We were allowed to sit in the meetings between the Feds and the Tribes, however all of the negotiating went on behind closed doors.
    Do you think this is some kind of trick against the Tribes so they can be turned over to the UN?
    obat made a statement a couple weeks ago that he planned to give Manhattan back to the Tribe.

    If you got fired for going to the trial, I pray you have standing to get this scumbag removed from office. If you go to court, let me know.

    God bless you for all your hard work, your honesty, and for keeping us informed.

      Jan…all over the western US! consulted, participated, in the field, managing the water, implementing the settlements

    • 5 P. Barnett January 3, 2011 at 11:31 pm

      I think wanted happened in MT is worth going to war over.. nobody owns the water. Water comes from God. to meter a private home owners well is complete tyranny. this takes away a citizens right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

      • 6 drkate January 3, 2011 at 11:47 pm

        Everywhere in the west water is being metered, and most likely metering in MT is result of state requiring metering as a condition of a water settlement. Indian water rights are legit, just as non-Indians’, and as a water manager and hydrologist I am convinced enough is available for all.

  3. 7 lana January 3, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Dr Kate am I reading this right? Did you work for the governmentvand get fired because of Obama? I’m not to good at the suttle stuff so your article kinda confussed me.

    But if you lost your job that is so terrible. Can you sue for wrong firing? There’s a lotta water in DC you should get a job there and really make Obama nervous!

    • 8 drkate January 3, 2011 at 11:48 pm

      No thankfully I don’t work for the government.

      I was wrongfully terminated without cause from a position and I have strong circumstantial evidence that the decision came from somewhere else.

      • 9 thedametruth January 4, 2011 at 3:05 pm

        Kate, I am devastated at this news and you remain in my thoughts, prayers and heart. You have joined the ranks of brave Americans who have paid a heavy price for exercising the right to free expression that, while our Constitution regards it as a god given right, apparently TPTB do not. May god bless you and keep you in His sights, hold and watch over you during this terrible time.

        I pray that you are able to stay safe. Your knowledge is among the most precious assets our nation has, and to deprive anyone of your services is a heinous act indeed.

    One of my favorite sayings is “He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.” Albert Einstein Well Dr. Kate uses her brain and her spinal cord quite effectively.

    It would make me quite uncomfortable to be referred to as a ‘hero’. Having courage does not mean one does not fear. It does mean one is able to overcome their fear and not be frozen from action. It would also make me uncomfortable for people to express sympathy for my circumstance. That has sometimes caused me to refrain from expressing certain stresses in my life, even with my own family. But then I’m a guy.

    Some here have asked what you can do. In all the time that I have known Kate, she has never asked for a donation. It is likely that many here haven’t even noticed the donation button along the right side of this site. It is a fact that Kate has never hesitated to financially support those activities she believes in. She has not only paid her own way, but has funded the activities of others such as Revolution Radio and the Third Continental Congress virtual meetings and seminars. My point is, if you are waiting for Dr. Kate to ask for a donation, don’t hold your breath. The PayPal donation button is on the right hand side of this website. I trust that all donations will be put to good use and are needed. Having a good war chest may allow for representation to do a lot more and a lot quicker. There are those that are constantly asking and I do not trust…at all, like some attorneys and well known charities I could name. In this case, I believe you could not find a more responsible or worthwhile way to put your money to work.

    The Prophet Elijah in fleeing for his life from the murderous rampage of Jezebel in Samaria Northern Israel, felt quite alone in being the target of state engaged assassination.
    In praying for God to end his own life, the still small voice of the Lord came to Elijah in the cave he was hiding in, after tempest and quake, and informed thee greatest Prophet of history, “You are not alone, for I have reserved thousands faithful to me in Israel”.

    Stand, in the end, you’ll still be you
    One that’s done all the things you set out to do
    Stand, there’s a cross for you to bear
    Things to go through if you’re goin’ anywhere

    Stand for the things you know are right
    It’s the truth that the truth makes them so uptight
    Stand, all the things you want are real
    You have you to complete and there is no deal

    Stand, stand, stand
    Everybody stand, stand, stand

    Stand, you’ve been sitting much too long
    There’s a permanent crease in your right and wrong
    Stand, there’s a midget standing tall
    And a giant beside him about to fall

    Stand, stand, stand
    Stand, stand, stand

    Stand, they will try to make you crawl
    And they know what you’re sayin’ makes sense at all
    Stand, don’t you know that you are free
    Well, at least in your mind if you want to be


    Stand, stand

  10. 22 Troy January 4, 2011 at 3:18 am

    Doc, feel free to delete my “gotcha, Bob” comments when and if you delete his trash spew.

    I took it easy on him since I’m a guest here at your blog. 😉

  11. 23 Sparky January 4, 2011 at 4:50 am

    When all is said and done, you, among others, will be vindicated and the truth will be revealed for all to see. Keep moving forward. Non illigitimus carborundum.

  12. 24 DiamondTiger January 4, 2011 at 6:04 am

    Doc, let me know what I can do to help. Maybe time for a trip to the islands? Asshat has gone back to the District of Criminals and the sewage water is back where it belongs now.

    P.S. Not surprised this happened….time to count coup.

  13. 26 tfb January 4, 2011 at 6:24 am

    I’m sorry for your tribulations. The world is an ugly corrupt place and you have fought valiantly to maintain our small corner of sanity. I hope you can regroup, revamp, economize, and get more efficient in your applied rage. Ultimately you will take this to court, and having learned what works and what does not, you will lay waste. I am going to buy a tiny house myself, I just don’t want the heavy turtle shell any more. Freedom is the eternal draw for us all. Remember what Janice Joplin sang…

    • 27 drkate January 4, 2011 at 4:39 pm

      Thank you tfb…I will land on my feet, and yes, create an even tighter operation…having gone this far, why stop now?

  14. 28 Lee M January 4, 2011 at 6:28 am

    Dr. Kate, I am so sorry that this has happened to you. I was expecting more mischief on your blog after the deletion of your post on the trial, but didn’t imagine they would go this far. It’s one thing to mess with a blog, but to use undue influence to compromise someone’s livlihood is pretty low down filthy. But then that is the type of person you are dealing with here.

    When a dedicated citizen like you is hounded in this way just for speaking the truth, it is a sad day for all of us.

    My belief in God is such that I feel they will get their comeuppance But how much more pain aand injustice will be meted out before that happens.

    God Bless You, Dr. Kate, and may things take a turn for the better.

    • 29 drkate January 4, 2011 at 4:46 pm

      Thank you Lee M for your kindness and thought. And yes, what a sad day.

      I have a strong faith in God and know that He brought me here too.

  15. 30 no-nonsense-nancy January 4, 2011 at 7:13 am

    Thank you for everything, Dr. Kate, and God Bless you. We WILL overcome this evil. It won ‘t be easy sailing but it will be done. God help us all to do what has to be done.


    • 31 drkate January 4, 2011 at 4:48 pm

      NNN, thank YOU for all your support, right there in person as well as here. Now you watch your back too… and stay in touch. And please don’t ever stop posting here, as I now NEED to see:


  16. 32 jrinNC January 4, 2011 at 7:32 am

    Dr. Kate – I just want you to know that I will support you and stand by you in any way that is necessary to stop this madness that is now beginning to affect decent law abiding citizens in the nation. While I am myself on a fixed income, I have made a contribution to you and will do so as many times as I can during the months ahead. We have to look after our own and I hope that many more will do so here on this blog. I will encourage all of the bloggers over at HeyokaPatriots to do the same. Please know that I am praying for you and that God gives you that inner strength to continue in your endeavors.

    • 33 Tenacity January 4, 2011 at 10:02 am

      Way to go jrinNC! The real heroes in this battle will be the ones that simply do what they can. We can all do something.

      Thank you so much for these thoughts and your donation…

    Apparently the ROE with your political opponents have changed.

    Now that they’ve deemed you worthy of engagement they will begin to test your personal pain threshold. Take pride in the fact that you have their attention, but also be aware that they have a devastating ability to keep you in an ever increasingly defensive mode.

    And it matters not at all if you happen to be a saint with a skeleton-free closet. You’ve engaged people who are totally unfamiliar with the phrase, “What would Jesus do?” People without conscience. People with resources far, far beyond yours. What’s happening isn’t personal, at least not to them. Their purpose is not to punish so much as to silence.

    Been there, done that.

    Good luck to you!

    • 36 thedametruth January 4, 2011 at 3:11 pm

      Merlin, sickeningly true, although with this bunch–their twisted psyches, IMO, absolutely DO engage in vindictive acts as much as they can. These are sick individuals.

    It’s time for the Native Americans to get on the eligibility wagon. The more people that know about, the easier it will be for the courts to do something.

    • 39 drkate January 4, 2011 at 4:57 pm

      Interestingly enough, I was not thinking of that possibility when I was working with the Tribes…only thinking how to construct a binding solution at the state level…but not contemplating ‘using’ the work to ‘get’ obama.

      But I think one of the fair game issues for all of Congress is not only to declare the constitutionality of every bill, but to also as about the validity of the pResident’s signature,,,

      Every piece of legislation has that question: is the person signing it a legal CIC? Otherwise, why should we follow it?

  20. 40 One Nerve January 4, 2011 at 10:49 am

    Dang Kate,

    Sorry this happened.

    You are a very intelligent woman and I feel confident that you will land on your feet.

    You are the type of woman that will survive through the worst of times, you are just that strong and smart. On top of that, you are a very nice person, gentle and compassionate and driven.

    In the meantime,while noBama continues his county fair pony ride through his pResidency, I will try to send a little towards the fund.

  21. 42 Troy January 4, 2011 at 11:20 am

    Dr. Kate, you can probably expect to be contacted soon by Sharon Rondeau of The Post & Email News….Just a hunch. 😉

  22. 43 jtx January 4, 2011 at 11:41 am

    Hang in there drk – and remember what Winston Churchill said in his talk to his former schoolmates at Harlow School when he said:

    “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never–in nothing, great or small, large or petty–never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

  23. 45 jd January 4, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    So sorry this happened. Lamecherry blog commented on it about a week ago, so it did not come as a total shock, but it is amazing how petty and vindictive this administration is. Good luck. I doubt if even Obama could keep you down for long.

  24. 49 AttilasDaughter January 4, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I’m really sorry that happened to You, Dr. Kate.
    The article in the NYT about the trial had Your real name in it, right?
    Actually I was surprised and wasn’t that the first time Your real name appeared in public?
    Definetely a hint for MissTickly what they are up to.
    Kevin from Hillbuzz lost his job after being outed as a conservative blogger also.
    Welcome to the machine.
    But as terrible as it is I have the feeling that You will come out stronger.
    God bless You, Dr. Kate, happy new Year!

    Dear drkate-just in case you need to relocate, FL has a new governor now Rick Scott-business background who will be going to all the other states to have their businesses relocate in FL (no state income tax is one of the selling points) and FL real estate is very depressed at this time (bargains). Anyway in FL water is very precious due to occasional droughts, about a year ago I heard something about new filtration plants to be built, something about membrane technology, desalination etc. I don’t know how far along any of this is. FL is still working on restoring the Everglades as I’m sure you know. No smart business person would let a valuable mind and education like yours go to waste. He’s an R so you would be safe. If you have to relocate to FL think 100 per cent cotton, many American Indian tribes also.

    “bdwilcox | January 4, 2011 at 12:26 pm | Reply

    I made this point on Mario Apuzzo’s blog and the liberals started screeching (thus, we know it’s true). Which do the feds fear more, civil unrest and riots in the inner-cities that could easily be contained or full-on revolution? Rioting in the inner cities will carry many deaths but a national revolution will probably carry six million dead (probably many more with today’s technology). The other salient point is that a riot in an inner city threatens individuals like a random Korean grocer or a truck driver, but a revolution is aimed squarely at the government and its apparatchiks . If nothing else, the government has much more self-interest in avoiding revolution than it does in preventing inner-city rioting. By running interference for the usurper, they’re fomenting rebellion and their own demise. They would be much wiser to expose the fraud, deal with its short-term sting and save their own hides as a result.”

    The scale of unrest amongst blacks is WAY overrated. Obama has thrown them under the bus and they know it. Shared melanin only goes so far.
    And what racists they are to assume blacks have so little character that they would OJ for Obama across the board? They can see he’s destroying the country and that he lives like a tinpot dictator, 172 flights, one every other day, hundreds of millions wasted on the undeserved luxe lifestyle at our expense. When the casualty figures are so high, there are many black soldiers being killed too.

      QL–thousands of fish in Maryland and Brazil are washing ashore now–and 2 states reporting thousands of dead birds–all black birds to be exact.

      One scientist said this, “there were 3-4k sitting in 1 tree and when fireworks went off the birds got scared and flew into each other.” I kid you not I read this and heard it on the radio. This is coming from a scientist? OMG—-where did he go to school—birds do not all roost together in that large of a flock and they do not fly at night……..he must have thought once again, tell these fools anything and they will believe it.

      I hand raised exotic baby birds for 20 yrs, I think I know their habits. I have also raised blackbirds and know theirs as well. Stupid is as stupid does.

      these birds and fish were poisoned with the chemtrails and possible crap from the gulf spill.

    I don’t often post, Kate, but I do often read here. I only want to say how sad it is that we’ve come to this… and that it’s too bad these people cannot get it figured out. On the plus side tho, where you will find yourself firmly seated I’m sure when this is done, our God is a mighty God and good. And He will not be mocked by Obo, the NWO, or any other so foolish as to rise up in some form or other of arrogance. You have been and will no doubt continue being highly effective in communicating appropriate perspective and we thank you for the consistently clear insight. Keep calling on Jesus who Is the Way. I’d bet he just needed to clear the deck for you for an even higher assignment.

    • 69 drkate January 4, 2011 at 5:06 pm

      “clearing the deck” are the words I heard one day before this all happened, I think it was November. I was on my knees in prayer with many tears of aching gratefulness.

    I have been hearing for months that TPTB are afraid to expose obat for fear of riots. The media keep playing clips of the riots in other countries, hoping we will do the same thing.

    The link they are missing, our firm belief in God.

    If 80% of America is Christian, then 80% will probably not riot, that leaves 30%, of that 30%, what percent do you think is on Welfare and or foot stamps? They will not riot, they might loose their obat money.

    If there are any small riots, oh well, I’m sure they have room in the FEMA camps to hold them for a while.
    America’s Christians are not and will not react the way they want us to and that is their delemma.
    Stand strong, follow God, he will not forsake us.

    Jan, your words are so true. We must all take action to take our country back and at the same time have our faith and pray very, very hard. God is NOT going to allow this great country to go down. We are the most generous people with our hard earned (capitalistic) money toward the needy of the world and He knows it. He had placed all of us here to accomplish what sometimes seems impossible. BUT IT IS NOT!!!

    … with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

    Those weren’t “just words” then. And they aren’t “just words” now.

    Modern-day patriots like Terry Lakin and Dr. Kate are literally sacrificing their freedom and finances in order to defend our Republic. Why? Because of their sacred Honor.

    May God protect them and bless them.

    May Satan and his demons be rebuked by all who call Jesus Christ LORD and Savior.

    For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

    As relevant today as it was nearly 235 years ago…

    SATURDAY, March 16, 1776.

    IN times of impending calamity and distress; when the Liberties of America are imminently endangered by the secret machinations and open assaults of an insidious and vindictive Administration, it becomes the indispensible duty of these hitherto free and happy Colonies, with true penitence of heart, and the most reverent devotion, publickly to acknowledge the over ruling providence of God; to confess and deplore our offences against him; and to supplicate his interposition for averting the threatened danger, and prospering our strenuous efforts in the cause of Freedom, Virtue and Posterity.

    The Congress therefore…

  39. 79 itooktheredpill January 5, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Dr. Kate,

    A thought just came to me…

    I wonder if Glenn Beck would be interested in your story.

    I know that he has ridiculed “birthers”, so he does not appear to be interested in the Founders’ understanding of the Natural Law definition of “natural born citizen”, but perhaps Glenn would be interested in the Obama Administration abuse of power to bully and destroy their opponents/”enemies”.

    And Glenn will be hiring people to join his staff. I have no idea whether or not he would hire you, but I do think that you would make an excellent addition to his team if he were to have the wisdom to hire you.

  40. 80 Mia January 6, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    I’m so sorry, Dr. Kate. My prayers are with you. I guess the ptb found out what we’ve all known for a long time: You are a valuable asset in our good fight. But I think they made a big mistake… People with nothing to lose make even more formidable enemies. I think they just empowered you 🙂

    Good luck and God bless you and yours.
