*Updates* White Hope Mine and Joe Robertson
by Tim Ravndal
A couple of long time friends George Kornec and Phil Napo have been in the mining industry for many years. Having served this country these two Veterans were living the American Dream exercising their rights at the “White Hope Mine” near Lincoln Montana. Until…the United States Forest Service began pushing regulations that made doing anything related to the mine virtually impossible. George passed away a couple of years ago and Phil is continuing this battle on his own.
Everyone that follows our coverage of the wrongs being implemented by Government against individuals like the “Bundy’s” or the “Hammonds” or the tragedy with Mr. Finnicum will want to hear the latest with the out of control usurpation of power in these two closely related cases. Phil is in Lewis & Clark County Montana. Joe is across the mountains in Jefferson County Montana. You may recall our earlier story where we covered the government overreach that put Joe Robertson in jail for 18 months for a crime that did not exist.
We are trying to help these Veterans secure due process from the government so we don’t have to witness further abuse of the rights of the people like they have done here.
