It’s a word one doesn’t hear often, and more often than not, it’s associated with some medical terminology. Acute nasal drip. Acute arthritis… something along those lines but the word acute has a specific definition.
Acute – adjective: acute; comparative adjective: acute; superlative adjective: acutest
- (of a bad, difficult, or unwelcome situation or phenomenon) present or experienced to a severe or intense degree.
I want you to keep that definition front and center as you read what’s coming next and it will light your hair on fire. In fact, keep it in mind throughout this shocking 4 part series of articles regarding government land grabs as it becomes more than abvious the “problem” isn’t at all what the government wants you to believe.
The Obama regime, his DOI (Dept. of the Interior) and the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) are plotting behind closed doors to grab even more land in the western United States because, they are convinced there is an…“acute” problem of private landholdings in BLM administered areas to the sum of 412,675 acres, and no, we’re not talking about Bunkerville here but, we might as well be.
So…of all the vast expanse of land out there, what’s a measly little 412,675 acres? In the great scheme of things, it’s only an inch on the scale.
Give em an inch…they’ll take a mile…right?
Case in point…On the heels of the Bunkerville debacle, the BLM is now threatening to seize land in Texas along the Red River…the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma. Back in 1986, the BLM was successful in stealing 140 acres there. That’s the inch. Now, they say THAT little land grab sets precedent for them to steal another…90,000 acres. There’s the mile.
Well guess what? Utah congressman Rob Bishop has recently uncovered documents…inter-agency documents circulating between the DOI and the BLM that not only show the power and land grab is being engineered behind the closed doors of the most transparent administration in history and documents which would indicate Obama either has or is being encouraged to sign an executive order to bypass congress yet again for the specific purpose of eradicating their “acute” problem…NOT to the tune of 412,675 acres. Oh, no…no, no…TO THE STAGGERING ORCHESTRAL DIRGE OF SOME…13 MILLION ACRES!!!
What congressman Bishop discovered were 14 pages of such documents that the DOI and BLM have been stalling him on for months, and according to Bishop…
“Thousands of westerners whose livelihoods depend upon access to our public lands stand to be affected by these decisions and yet this document blatantly goes out of its way to exclude their input or participation. If there was any question about whether or not this Administration has declared a war on the West, these new documents are evidence enough.”
Normally, it would take an act of congress to appropriate lands from private holdings but, not in this case…not if this regime has its way.
From page 5 paragraph 5 of the newly uncovered stash of documents: “Should the legislative process not prove fruitful, or if a nationally significant natural or cultural land resource were to come under threat of imminent harm, the BLM would recommend that the Administration consider using the Antiquities Act…,”
Section 2 of the Antiquities Act of 1906 reads as follows and I have added emphasis: “That the President of the United States is hereby authorized, in his discretion, to declare by public proclamation historic landmarks, historic and prehistoric structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest that are situated upon the lands owned or controlled by the Government of the United States to be national monuments, and may reserve as a part thereof parcels of land, the limits of which in all cases shall be confined to the smallest area compatible with proper care and management of the objects to be protected: Provided, That when such objects are situated upon a tract covered by a bona fied unperfected claim or held in private ownership, the tract, or so much thereof as may be necessary for the proper care and management of the object, may be relinquished to the Government, and the Secretary of the Interior is hereby authorized to accept the relinquishment of such tracts in behalf of the Government of the United States.”
And who exactly makes the determination as to “so much thereof as may be necessary for the proper care and management of…” those lands? The STATE in which those lands reside with input from the people affected by the government seizure OF those lands?
Heavens no…THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT…THE VERY PEOPLE SEIZING THOSE LANDS from the “acute” problem of private landholders gets to make that decision and, according to THIS…they are plotting to take them without so much as asking congress for permission. The lands in question, some 13 MILLION acres, will be signed over to the federal government with a left-handed stroke of the Dictator’s pen.
As we have learned from the issues at the Bundy Ranch, the BLM is doing a piss-poor job of managing the lands they have already stolen from the states and private landholders. At Bunkerville, they had to stop paying the tortoise sanctuary $1 million dollars a year to save the damn things and now, they’re euthanizing more than 1000 of their tortoises as a result.
If the federal government can’t afford $1 million per year to protect what they claim they are there to protect on THAT small parcel of land…how on earth do they propose to maintain another 13 million acres?
Page 9 paragraph 5 of the recently discovered long hidden documents: “The BLM recommends that any major funding increases be phased in over a five-year period to allow the BLM time to build capacity in order to accomplish the increased work-load.”
They intend to raise your taxes to finance their stealing of land that you won’t be allowed to use. That’s correct…you will be paying the equivalent of property taxes on property the federal government has stolen from you.
The federal government will try to mask their land grabs by claiming it is for new national parks or new national monuments so that people can enjoy the scenery but that’s a lie. Nobody is planning a vacation to enjoy the wonders of grazing lands to begin with and the national parks we have now, more than 350 of them across this nation, are already suffering from a lack of funding.
Here is a stunning statistic. The BLM currently controls more than 260 million acres in the western United States and most of that is, for the time being, listed as mixed use land but now, this regime wants to transfer up to 140 million acres of it to “treasured lands” status meaning NO use whatsoever by private landholders and whatever they have out there from livestock to houses would have to go.
How much land IS 140 million acres? Well…it’s the size of Colorado…and Wyoming…combined.
That’s correct…the BLM via Obama’s regime intends to render a portion of the western United States…the size of Wyoming and Colorado COMBINED… completely OFF LIMITS to any and all individual Americans to be solely controlled by the federal government.
Of, by and for the people my ass.
According to the Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17: “To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of Particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;–“
First of all, the federal government may ONLY own land…NOT EXCEEDING TEN MILES SQUARE…in any particular state…and ONLY “by the Consent of the Legislature of the State” for the purpose of erecting… “Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;–“ so, if this regime, under the dictatorship of one who claims to have been a CONSTITUTIONAL LAW PROFESSOR intends to erect such structures…enough of them to justify the seizure of an area the size of WYOMING AND COLORADO COMBINED…I should like to see their plans and I mean NOW!!!
Otherwise, tomorrow, in my Weekend Edition, I will call BULLCRAP in these thefts of land from the public and I will PROVE this has not a single thing to do with…”protecting the environment.”
Not one single damn thing.
The problem IS acute but…NOT in the way this regime is trying to make you believe.
