Mosaic Mine is Plymouth Minnesota Company that Lost $11B from February 2017 to August 2017!
The Relative Strength of Mosaic Mine [RS] is 9. That means that 91% of the entire Stock Market is more valuable to buy then this plummeting stock company. As a managing director of a former Wall Street Investment Banking firm and the owner of several banks, I would strongly recommend that it is time for responsible Mosaic Mine Shareholders to change the financially inept management ASAP. The state of Florida should demand that the collusive, corrupt attorney Steven M. Seibert be dismissed from the BOD of MOS.
Many of you know that North Central Florida is in an epic battle to stop the destruction of phosphate strip mining. The devastation is well documented yet the predatory Mosaic Mine continues its poaching of our precious water and pristine land.
We learned that Mosaic Mines had to pay a $2B penalty to settle a “federal lawsuit in order to clean up hazardous waste in six Florida sites and two in Louisiana”. [Tampa Bay Times]. No worries, thats business as usual. Who cares if locals get cancer or drinking water is poisoned? Its the way it goes for these ignorant little counties with corruptible officials and a few greedy landowners that are promised riches despite known drawbacks.
The EPA has accused Mosaic of “improper storage and disposal of waste from the production of phosphoric and sulfuric acids, key components of fertilizers at Mosaic facilities in Bartow, New Wales, Mulberry, Riverview, South Pierce and Green Bay in Florida and two sites in Louisana”. [Tampa Bay Times, Monday, August 21, 2017]. BTW the CEO is NOT an American but rather a Austrailian/Canadian who is raping our homeland.
According to the article: “The settlement with the EPA, the Justice Department, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality will have NO IMPACT on Mosaic’s continued employment or in its future mining expansion plans in Desoto, Hardee and Manatee counties.”
It’s quite revealing that Mosaic has had the following Phosphate Law Suits:
“Central Florida homeowners have sued over TOXIC RADIATION. The Lanier Law Firm has filed a class-action Lawsuit on behalf of the homeowners of Central Florida, charging that operations of phosphate mines failed to warn them about dangerously high levels of radiation” [Dr. Terry Brant, MD,JD]. There is clear evidence from scientists, environmentalists, physicians that the poor inhabitants of various Florida counties were exposed to such toxic contaminants that they developed all types of cancers, goiters, genetic malformations and specifically increased cancers in children.
The real question for me and many other politically active citizens is how does a mining company from the state of Minnesota invade Florida and destroy our wetlands, rivers, lakes, aquifers without any condemnation from the two so-called liberal senators from Minnesota?
Senator Amy Klobuchar is born in Plymouth, Minnesota where Mosaic is headquartered. Why is it that when I called her office to speak to her, after having sent an email about the nefarious deeds of Mosaic mine, I received no return phone call nor email? Instead, I had a novitiate intern stammer some words and ‘thanked me for my services’. Is this how the “future presidential hopeful” treats concerned citizens?
Could it be that this incredibly entitled prosecutor, Amy, who sits on the Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism does not recognize that Mosaic has all the characteristic features of American Corporate Terrorist?
If Senator Amy needs a refresher in domestic terrorism as formulated by FBI read: “Domestic Terrorism as set forth in the USA Patriot Act :
[A] involve in acts dangerous to human life and that are in violation of the criminal laws of the USA or state
[B] Appear to be intended:
[i]to intimidate or coerce civilian population
[ii] to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion ” [Wikipedia].
All of the above are what we citizens and our elected officials are experiencing right now by Mosaic and related parties. Physical threats and verbal menacing are just part of the process here in North Central Florida.
Now the other senator from Mosaic’s home state is Al Franken. He is good enough, smart enough to sit on the Mining sub-committee. Isn’t that special? Ironically, he sits on two federal committees which should/could have intervened immediately after Mosaic had created their environmental havoc in Florida. How can Franken justify his positions on:
- Subcommittee for Public Lands, Forests and Mining
- Subcommittee for Children and Families
Did he ever inquire as to what was happening to scores of Polk County children who suffered increased rate of cancers and other illnesses because of his home state Mosaic’s chicanery ?
Now compared to these two senators from Minnesota, CEO Joc O’Rourke is doing what is expected of him. He is rapacious, focused and indifferent to the welfare of the common citizens. Yet, he really can’t be that good if the stock price continues to plummet and shareholders are losing value at an execrated rate.
I have repeatedly stated that Mosaic has lost significant stock value when it fell from over $130 per share all the way down to $19 on 8/21/17. As such, “Joc” and his surrounding engineers/financial comptrollers should be replaced with individuals who are more financially and environmentally astute.
There is one more fly in this ointment of nefarious deeds. That fly is named Steven M. Seibert. He is an independent Director on the Mosaic Board of Directors. Who is he?
This is what Wikipedia has to say:
“Mr. Seibert is a land use and environmental attorney and has been a FLORIDA supreme court certified mediator for over 20 years. In early 2013, he co-founded a strategy firm, triSect LLC. Mr. Seibert served as the secretary of Florida’s Dept of Community Affairs from 1999 to 2003, following his appointment by Governor Jeb Bush. Before that he was the county commissioner of Pinellas county from 1992 to 1999.”
One more thing…..
Seibert served also as the executive director of the Century Commission on Sustainable Florida [Wikipedia]. From the certifiably corrupt Bush family, we get Seibert! Talk about the fox guarding the hen-house or Jimmy Saville hosting the kiddie show!
The finale to the Mosaic Mine story will hopefully end as follows:
- Mosaic Mine shareholders will ask “CEO Joc” to leave. He will receive a very healthy severance package and return to Australia.
- Seibert and other Board Members will be dismissed for whatever made up reasons.
- Mosaic Stock will continue to lose value as they insist on pursuing their self-destructive financial and health-hazardous practices.
- Bradford County Commissioners will join the surrounding counties Union, Alachua in defense of clean water and a sustainable future and vote down the four families attempt to bring in Mosaic.
- Florida Power and Light Company will buy out the 11,000 acres for a Solar Farm. This will garner the support of everyone in North Central Florida.
- Both Senators Klobuchar and Franken will be voted out of their respective offices for corruption and fraud.
- Citizens will continue to fight to preserve our waters and farmlands despite our corrupted Federal, state, county, and local politicians.
