Yesterday morning we were at 400-some signatures (toward a 500 goal) on our petition to keep JPFO from falling into SAF’s clutches.
Thanks to old friend Elias Alias and the power of Oath Keepers, we are at 1,016 early this morning as I write this!
Great-soul Elias and the members of the Oath Keepers email list did this on their own. Amazing thing.
Since I’m persona non grata with the JPFO board, maybe a few of you would like to send them the petition link. Their email addresses are in the original post about the SAF deal.
Update on the planned sellout
I don’t know whether we can save JPFO. Very, very mixed signals right now.
On one hand, one of the members of the rescue group used her passion for JPFO and her powers of persuasion. She got some hints that the JPFO board might hear what we had to say and she herded us cats into submitting a revised version of last week’s outline proposal.
On the other hand, the SAF deal may (I stress may) have been signed already. Once again, as usual in this mess, we simply don’t know. It’s impossible to say because the board and SAF have continued to operate in complete secrecy.
ADDED: The cynical part of me (which never seems to be cynical enough, these days) fears that the last-minute agreement to consider our outline proposal is merely a dodge — something to keep us quiet while the SAF deal is inked. Something to give the board the ability to say, “We gave their plans a fair hearing but found them inadequate.”
I hope I’m wrong.
Given that we have two of JPFO’s corporate sponsors working with the rescue team, “inadequate” is untrue. Unwanted still remains likely.
