Mexican Invasion

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 19-03-2013

Is it just me or have we already had a Mexican invasion? All the papers are talking about the new Latino population explosion and the millions of Latinos now giving the Democrats the upper hand at the polls,  and our language needs to now be in English and Spanish, if we stop a suspected illegal for questioning we are profiling, and New Mexico drivers license can be granted to those who have entered out country illegally, and the feds (a democratic administration) wants to grant amnesty to another 11 million illegals this year….. Mexico is taking over and never firing a shot and never spending a dollar in their conquest….Well, maybe its better this way……I am sure its just me because we protect our shores from foreign invasions….Don’t we? Oh yeah, I forgot, that’s a fence, huh, not a shore…..

Lizard Ready for Prime Time TV

You remember me telling you about the Sand Dune Lizard down in SE New Mexico and Far West Texas being on the endangered list. I also told you an agreement between the oil exploration and production companies had been reached. According to todays, March 15, 2013 Albuquerque Journal, agreements signed by those parties are confidential, even from the federal government. Nobody knows what is in them ….I guess that means the Sheriff’s Dept, the FBI,  The Texas Rangers and probably even the Border Patrol, do not know what is in them. So they really don’t know if the little fellow will be protected or not……. Here is the solution as I see it. We have this little fellow with this weird accent on tv every night. Our Sand Dune lizard has a West Texas Drawl, but we can understand him, so lets put him on tv. He will probably say, “Well, tonight I’m a coming to you from Odessa, Texas, folks and we have a real deal for you if you will call in early. Two policies for the price of one, if you live in Texas and have a gun rack in your pick up……What, you don’t have a pick up….Boy, you better get back on up yonder to New York City then…We can’t guarantee you protection if you ain’t got no 30 – 30 in your gun rack.”….Ok, ok, that is a little bit much….But it’s at least has to be a .22 automatic….And yeah, that seems a little small…

Another e-mail from our Houston sources…More good stuff…Pete
 
I WENT TO YOUR WEBSITE , HESTERBOOKS.COM AND I REALLY LIKED WHAT
YOU SAID ! THANK YOU ! IT IS NICE TO FEEL APART OF THIS TREASURE HUNT !
ALSO, I READ THE PAPER AGAIN THAT YOU ALL SENT, AND IT SAID THE
TREASURE IS IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS AND HE WROTE, “I NEVER SAID THAT
IT WAS IN NEW MEXICO AND I NEVER SAID IT WAS BURIED, ONLY THAT I HID IT
BETWEEN TWO AND FOUR YEARS AGO, SOMEWHERE IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS.”
SO THIS PUTS A DIFFERENT CLUE TO THE TREASURE.
THERE ARE SOME WARM SPRINGS IN OURAY, COLORADO WHICH IS
NEAR DURAGO AND SILVERTON. WE HAVE BEEN IN THEM AND YOU WALK INTO
THE CAVE.
I THINK THE BIG THING IS TO FIND THE “WARM WATERS” THAT HE IS TALKING
ABOUT. ALSO, THERE IS OJO CALIENTE SPRINGS TOO NEAR SANTA FE.
ON THE INTERNET THERE WAS A LADY FROM TEXAS THAT GOT LOST
A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO TRYING TO FIND IT. DID YOU READ THAT ?
THEY FOUND HER AND SHE IS OKAY.
LET US KNOW IF YOU COME UP WITH ANYTHING ELSE. THIS IS FUN,
AND KEEPS ONE THINKING OF WHERE IT COULD BE.

The Thrill of the Chase by Forrest Fenn…more clues for the buried treasure

…..Ok, folks, this just in from Houston, Tx from friends who live there now, but they still maintain a cabin in the Jemez Mountains. What do you guys think about these ideas. We could be getting hot, huh? I removed the e-mail heading and address, etc. If you have questions I might entice them to parlay a few more tidbits of info to us. Many thanks, Carolyn, and I hope we have provided clues that will help our readers in finding the treasure. Pete…………Here are the messages…….

THANKS PETE ! I GOOGLE MR. FENN AND GOT THE POEM. VERY INTERESTING AND

VERY CHALLENGING TO WHERE THE “TREASURE” IS AND IN WHAT PART OF
NEW MEXICO. ALSO, IT MUST BE CLOSE TO SOME CABINS OR HOMES BECAUSE
OF MR. FENN MENTIONING THE HOME OF BROWN. WHEN HE SAYS, WATER HIGH
THAT TO ME MEANS A WATERFALL. ALSO, AT THE FIRST WHEN HE SAID
AS I HAVE GONE ALONE IN THERE THAT TO ME MEANS HE GOES BEHIND THE
WATERFALL AND INTO A CAVE. I THINK IT COULD BE SODA SPRINGS IN THE
JEMEZ.
IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHERE THE TREASURE IS FOUND.
CAROLYN

PETE,

OF COURSE YOU CAN USE MY CLUES. I DOUBT IF WE WILL BE COMING BACK
JUST TO LOOK FOR THE TREASURE. AND YOU ALSO CAN USE MY NAME TOO.
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GET THERE ? IT IS REALLY CLOSE TO SANTA FE,
FROM ALBUQUERQUE, GO 550 OUT OF BERNALILLO TO SAN YSIDRO AND THEN TAKE
HIGHWAY 4 TO JEMEZ SPRINGS.
THERE WILL BE A FORK IN THE ROAD AT SAN YSIDRO AND TAKE THE RIGHT ROAD WHICH IS HWY. 4.
AND ON UP. I LOOKED JEMEZ SPRINGS UP IN OUR TRIPLE A TOUR BOOK,
AND THIS IS THE DECRIPTION OF JEMEZ SPRINGS. (ABOUT 13 MILES NORTH OF
JEMEZ PUEBLO,THE HOT MINERAL WATERS AT JEMEZ SPRINGS ATTRACTED
SPAINISH EXPLORERS, PUEBLO DWELLERS, COWBOYS, MINERS AND
PIONEERS. A BATH HOUSE BUILT HERE IN THE 1870’S CONTINUES TO SERVE WEARY TRAVELERS.
FIVE MILES NORTH ARE THE SODA DAM AND BATTLESHIP ROCK FORMATIONS. THERE ARE
PICNIC FACILITIES AT BATTLESHIP ROCK, AND TROUT FISHING.
BEING CLOSE TO SANTA FE YOU GO FROM SANTA FE TO LOS ALAMOS AND THEN
CUT THROUGH TO HIGHWAY 4. VERY INTERESTING ! MR. FENN MIGHT OF GONE THAT WAY SINCE
HE IS FROM SANTA FE. IT WOULDN’T BE THAT FAR AT ALL. JUST 285 TO 502 TO HIGHWAY 4 AND
THEN TO SODA DAM. LOOK AT YOUR MAP AND SEE IF THAT IS WHAT YOU THINK.
THANKS, THIS HAS BEEN FUN. WISH YOU ALL “GOOD LUCK.”
CAROLYN
Carolyn, May I use your clues on the web site… Thanks, Pete

Buried Treasure North of Santa Fe..For Real…

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 01-03-2013

Mr. Forrest Fenn is his book, The Thrill of The Chase, has written a poem in that book that gives clues to the place where he buried a Romanesque Box containing treasures and the box  is a treasure in its self as it dates from A.D. 1150. But also, inside the box are several gold nuggets, two the size of your fist….265 gold coins…..and jewels, rubies, emeralds, diamonds, he claims a total value of over $250,000.00. This morning on NBC, I believe, he said it was buried in the Rocky Mountains north of Santa Fe above 5000 feet in elevation. What a clue, as I don’t really know of a location north of Santa Fe under 5000 feet. Santa Fe is about 7500 feet. Espanola is about 5595, Chimayo is 6075 feet. And, remember Georgia O’Keefe, world renown painter lived at Abiquiu, which is about 6027 feet. And get this…..Ok, before I tell you I would like a cut of 10 % if you find it in this general area….alright then, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was filmed in this area…Cowboys and Aliens was filmed in this area and……City Slickers was filmed in this area. Remember the second film where Curly’s brother took the boys to the cave on the treasure hunt, that was up there….That could be where Mr. Fenn got his idea and he could have used the same cotton picking cave….Ok, don’t all of you rush up there at once. There is limited places to stay…I think I will go ahead and head up that way….Ok, you folks just forget what I said, ok…..Just a joke…Ha, ha…..I was just kidding…. Anyway, its still pretty cold up in them thar hills…..Naw, it’s way to cold to come out here now…..Pete Hester ps….update, he said in the poem in the book to “begin where the warm waters stop and take it in the canyon down not far…but to far to walk”….Now let me see, is there a warm springs that drain into a river, like the hot springs at Jemez Springs that run into the Jemez River….Well, I don’t remember a canyon near there….Oh, he did say “up the canyon without a paddle” so I reckon that means a dry canyon, huh? Gee, I don’t know, confusing huh? Well, if my clues help, please consider a tip..Pete

 

 


 

Hispanic Population Soars In U. S.

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 25-02-2013

So says the front page article of the Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013 addition of the Albuquerque Journal. I can only ask, “where you been folks?”.  It Further states, “population explodes by 47% nation wide, underscoring the political muscle Latinos showed in the 2012 elections. Also, “bringing our total Hispanic population to about 52 million….Me talking now, and when we add the additional 11 million by granting amnesty the democrats can count on a bountiful election records for the future. The paper states, “The skyrocketing growth of the U. S. Hispanics assures they will continue to influence political life…..” Well, dud, thanks for sharing that. And do any of us believe we can stop the illegal flow from across the border?….I am not picking on my American Hispanic friends…I have many. And they are not the problem.. The new comers come day and night and they are not invited. If our own population would do the work the illegals perform we would not have a problem at all. We are too lazy……But, boys and girls, in case you have not noticed we have our hands full taking care of our present population now and we are going to keep adding more? …We can vote for more and more benefits but the bank account is already overdrawn and we may have a “come to Jesus” meeting in March and the balance of 2013. And that would be complements of our congress and our “voting population”. Think I am wrong? Well, then I hope you are right, however, we should soon know…..

I happened to need an oil change today and spent about 1 1/2 hours or so at Brakemaster’s waiting on an oil change. It was a very fast 1 1/2 hours as I spent the time visiting with Andrew Thomas who was also waiting. It was a very interesting time spent with this world traveler and hearing of the countries that he has toured and visiting with him on other numerous subjects, ie, Navajo Code Talkers of WWII and how they formulated the codes based on the Navajo language. Words in English that start with an A may start with a W in Navajo. That was a turning point in World War Two and I expressed my thanks to those Code Talkers for their input. That was a part of several topics that we covered. Goggle Andrew and read his bio and even listen to some of his music, as I did. If you happen to come by this site Andrew I would like to say that it was a pleasure visiting with you and maybe I will see you at the Navajo Cultural Center on my next visit. Pete Hester

 E-mail titled “if’ ” regarding the United States government from a friend in Dallas. Right on the mark I would say.

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.If you have to get your parents? permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.If the only school curriculum allowed to explain how we got here is evolution, but the government stops a $15 million construction project to keep a rare spider from evolving to extinction … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute”, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings while children of addicts are left in filth and drug infested ?homes?… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks of Unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can?t find work … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor buys iPhones, TV’s and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government … you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

 
 
 
 

Note to Meredith Bennett-Smith/ The Huffington Post

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 16-02-2013

Meredith Bennett-Smith says Tim Tebow is slated to speak at the controversial First Baptist Church of Dallas, TX, which she said is headed by a hate filled minister of the gospel, Rev. Robert Jeffress. Well, mam, you need to get out more because the message Rev. Jeffress is teaching is being taught across the country at churches every Sunday morning, and not just Baptist. You are invited to attend any one of those churches to get the low-down on all us hate filled Baptist and other Christians. To my knowledge, everyone of those fellows filling the pulpits say essentially the same thing and quote scripture, chapter and verse, from the bible. Baptist do not hate Jews, Mormons, or any other folks of a different belief, they simply say, “this is what the bible says” and then tell it like it is. Sorry if the shoe happens to fit. Some pastors say it in a way that is easier to swallow, but it is the same message. “Listen closely”, that’s how the Lord would say it. Of course, you know that He was a Jew, The King of the Jews” and He came to give salvation “first to the Jew and then to the Gentile”. Non-believing Jews or Gentiles are excluded from the Kingdom of Heaven per our Kings own words. Tim Tebow is trying to relay that same message to a lost generation. I don’t know you, but if you can make plans to attend that old “hate filled” church in April, hear the words that Mr. Tebow delivers and visit with some of the “hate filled” church goers (watch out, you may find them lovable) and then let us hear from you. Ok…Thanks for reading this post….Pete Hester

update: Ms. Bennett-Smith, apparently you talked Mr. Tebow out of attending the Dallas Church, however, I don’t think you stopped the message being spoken there. I am sure Rev. Jeffress will stay with his planned message so you still might ought to plan on being there. Breaking news, maybe…….Let me know…..Pete Hester
