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.

So, this regime is planning to transfer 140 million acres of our western lands from “mixed use” to “treasured lands” status soon which means that NO individual or private company will have any access to them whatsoever. 140 million acres…the combined size of Wyoming and Colorado and for what?
Well, THEY claim it is to “protect the environment” which is a long over used and false claim.
It’s the land grab equivalent of the standard clarion lie from the left when it comes to attempts to pass legislation or, in the case of this insipid regime, use the dictator’s pen to sign away more and more of the rights that keep us free…”Oh, we MUST do it for the CHILDREN!!!”
Well, I’m calling BULLCRAP on this “protect the environment” land grab nonsense and I can prove it.
Let’s go back to the Clinton administration.
1996…That’s when Clinton went after 1.7 million acres in Utah. His administration claimed it was “to protect the environment” because those lands, he claimed, were endangered.
What a coincidence that those “endangered” lands, so in need of government management were the very lands where the largest untapped coal reserves in the nation were located and, the house committee called him out on it.
Naturally, Clinton responded with: “Mining jobs are good jobs, and mining is important to our national security — but we can’t have mines everywhere, and we shouldn’t have mines that threaten national treasures,” but the real story…the PROOF…came from a document sent from his Chair of the Council for Environmental Quality, one Kathleen Alana “Katie” McGinty who wrote in an email that: “these lands are not really endangered.”
“Oh, we MUST do it for the children!!!”
A liberal lie meant to take away our rights.
“We MUST protect the ENVIRONMENT!!!”
A liberal lie meant to take away our land…
The INCONVENIENT and long buried truth of the matter.
On April, 22nd…I wrote an article, “Staring Down the Barrel of the Liberal’s Total Control Agenda and exposed the plan of the EPA to grab WATER…ALL of it in an effort for this regime to take complete control over the American people but, these land grabs go even deeper as Diane Sori, my Right Side Patriots radio partner and I are about to reveal and this is so disturbing I suggest you get a firm grip on something solid as I believe you will be as outraged as we are.
Control. These land grabs and the shifting of such enormous tracts of land from mixed use to “treasured lands” status are about control not only of our nation’s people but of our resources and our economy in what may well be THE most evil plan ever conceived.
To begin…we all know of Solyndra and other various boondoggles where this regime has poured our taxpayer dollars into bogus green energy firms but, are you aware of the true scope of the burning of our money on this crap?
Staggering, isn’t it. Now then…ask yourselves why?
Simply put, the U.S. dollar is only being propped up right now by foreign oil and our military industrial complex and Iran has been a long-time proponent of OPEC dumping the dollar as their exchange currency.
THAT is why this regime MUST, at any cost to them and to us, keep us dependent ON foreign oil and most of it comes from countries that don’t like us at all. If we were to become energy independent, THEY would dump the dollar in the blink of an eye and our economy would crash.
Our economy would crash but, that’s what this Obama regime WANTS, isn’t it? That’s why the ‘recovery” has now diminished to a mind-meltingly low 0.1% GDP…because that’s Obama’s plan. Drive the economy into the toilet and FORCE people to become ever more dependent on government subsidies and entitlements just to get from day to day.
As things stand now, OPEC and other foreign oil producers are in control of our economy as the Fed continues to devalue every dollar by running their printing presses 24 hours a day. OPEC keeps inching up the price of a barrel of crude to compensate for the downward trend of the dollar.
Our western oh-so-treasured lands, those Obama is now in the process of stealing with his pen, moving from mixed to NO use status, just happen to sit on reserves…lots and lots of reserves. Coal, as I mentioned earlier…natural gas…oil shale and of course, as I outlined in my article from April 22nd…water.
There’s enough there, under those lands that, with today’s extraction technology, we could become energy independent and were the sovereign states of the west allowed to make their own decisions regarding those lands…THEY too would flourish. THEIR economies would burst at the seams and because of it…our NATIONAL economy would grow at record paces to heights we can only imagine.
The downside for this regime and their agenda, their very ideology would be that with the wealth of those states comes the direct lack of need for federal government “entitlements” via the extortion the federal government now holds over the states. States would have the financial resources to maintain their OWN infrastructures and the power to kick the federal government OUT of the day to day business of the people…just as the founders and framers always intended.
This regime, because of their agenda and their perverse ideology of controlling the people by any and all means necessary, cannot allow that to happen therefore…seize the land…control what flows ON it as well as what’s stored UNDER it…do NOT allow private individuals to access it where the bulk of those resources wait to be tapped and GOVERNMENT is in total control.
But, it gets even worse.
Once this regime, via their agenda of flushing our economy down the crapper thus elevating the need of the people to rely on government doled out subsidies and entitlements and the federal government’s abject control of virtually all water that flows, sits atop or under the ground including the rain that runs off your rooftops and couple that with the federal control of “STRATEGIC” lands and the government, regardless of which side of the aisle is running the show at any given time will be the deciding choice as when to allow OPEC and other not so friendly oil producers to pull the plug.
Once that happens…the federal government will TAP those strategic lands and the GOVERNMENT who will decide on how much energy gets produced thus controlling the PRICE of energy 100% across the board. We will finally be ENERGY independent but We the People will be completely GOVERNMENT…DE-pendent and if you don’t like the way the government doles out the energy to keep your lights on, your homes heated and cooled or your car running between point A and point B…or the price you have to pay for it as set BY the government…you would be at THEIR mercy.
Let’s just hope you don’t get thirsty too.
I want you to look at the map below and realize that everything in red is land the government controls. That’s what they have already taken from We the People and, they want more.
And look how nicely oil shale deposits and basins in our western United States match up with the map above. It’s an eye opening comparison and one for which there can be no other reasonable explanation.
It’s stunning when these maps are brought to light and more so when one realizes that this regime is moving to totally eliminate private citizens from lands that when combined total the surface area of Colorado and Wyoming combined.
And you thought this was all about turtles and cows and scenic overviews?
Clearly, this has little if anything to do with “protecting the environment.” THIS is about controlling the land in order to control the energy UNDER it and thus, taking control of the people…WE the People.
As I wrap up this part of our four part series on the truth regarding these federal land grabs, allow me to point out the unmitigated hypocrisy of this regime.
On April 21st, Joe Biden, this regime’s 2nd in command was in Poland and stated, “No nation has the right to simply grab land from another nation. We will never recognize Russia’s illegal occupation of Crimea,” and while he spoke those words, this regime was well into the depths of grabbing land away from We the People to be OCCUPIED solely by the federal government.
And remember how this article started…with the Clinton administration lying about protecting the environment while grabbing up 1.7 million acres of a coal field in Utah?
Well…Look at one more map and compare the coal fields of the western united states to the oil shale and to the government hijacked lands.
If you aren’t furious enough by now, having read parts 1 and 2 of this 4 part expose regarding the Obama regime’s land grabs, my partner, Diane Sori’s part 3, published today in in her blog, The Patriot Factor and also here in The National Patriot will make you absolutely livid as we have, so far, only scratched the surface of the nefarious nature of this agenda by connecting the dots to equally if not more dire consequences awaiting us all in ways you have never imagined before.
|BLM land already owned|
|‘Supposedly’ desolate land wanted by BLM|
|Uranium deposits on BLM land|
Uranium…one of the most precious elements on Earth…primarily used for the generation of nuclear power, but it’s also used for quite another purpose…as in nuclear weapons…as in the main component of America’s nuclear arsenal lies under the surface of the lands the feds are trying to grab.
And what will happen to all this uranium as thanks to Obama lowering the numbers in our nuclear weapons arsenal and his placing a moratorium on building any new nuclear power plants…nuclear power plants that would help supply America’s energy needs thus cutting our dependency on foreign oil…on Arab oil. And remember, the feds would NOT be so desperate to grab up land that was just going to sit there, so if we can’t mine or use the uranium then who will?
|New Mexico uranium mine|
Now enter center stage the U.S. With major deposits of uranium under the surface of the lands the feds are trying to grab…and with the U.S. owing China huge sums of money you just know that once the feds own the land…actually steal the land…that ‘suddenly’ it will be announced that this administration will allow China to mine the uranium to pay off America’s notes due. And in allowing China to mine the uranium that they will ship home to be refined…and to probably drill the oil and tap into the natural gas on these lands as well…a country we owe countless dollars to will be allowed by the feds to strip our lands of its natural resources…of energy sources our country could use to cut our dependency on foreign oil.
And why will Obama allow this…the answer is quite simple. Remember, China has lent us billions of dollars and even when we defaulted on the notes due, and even though we’ve only paid interest on said notes, China continues to lend us money…continues to do so even as the dollar declines in value, as our S&P credit ratings continue to drop, all while Obama continues to have his hand out. So why is China willing to lend us money…it’s because China wants…China needs…the uranium that’s under our land because as their population grows they need to meet their population’s energy needs.
|Chinese nuclear plant under construction|
So as Barack HUSSEIN Obama revels in selling us out to China to pay off the debts he’s run up, an added bonus to him is that he gets to keep us dependent on his brethren’s oil for decades to come.
|Thorium deposits on BLM land|
And guess what else is under the feds grabbed up lands that China so desperately wants…that China so desperately needs…an element called thorium. China is currently working on a uranium-free nuclear plant in its attempt to break reliance on pollution causing fossil fuels and to hold down the costs of having to refine uranium. And using the cheaper and environmentally cleaner radioactive element thorium instead of uranium would be a win-win for them all the way around.
Now add into the mix Iran who desperately needs uranium for their nuclear ambitions. Iran does NOT have the needed deposits of raw uranium so Iran must get their uranium from other countries…like their trading partner China perhaps. But, if Obama allows China to mine uranium on the lands they’ve grabbed to pay off our notes due, and if China then decides to sell or trade some of the uranium they’ve mined in the U.S…or if China gets our uranium through sales from Canada…we still have NO control over what China does with anything coming from our country. Think about that for moment…our uranium possibly mined by China on U.S. soil or our uranium coming to them through Canadian exports could be sold to Iran by China.
And here’s a little something else to raise your ire…the BLM claims that they’re grabbing these lands to keep them environmentally safe…to protect endangered species. And that is a lie as The Arizona One Mine is producing uranium in northern Arizona on land managed by the BLM itself. Originally approved by BLM in 1988, this mine has been in active production since 2009, producing up to 300 tons of ore per day that is processed at White Mesa Mill by Energy Fuels, Inc., a Canadian company known to do business with China.
|White Mesa Mill on BLM land|
This company that sells to China also explores for mines, develops and produces uranium and vanadium properties throughout the western United States on property managed by the BLN, with its principal properties located in Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming …the very lands the feds are grabbing up.
What a vicious circle of deceit and lies courtesy of our federal government.
And there is something else you need to know concerning what’s under the ground of the federally grabbed lands, and it will be explained in tomorrow’s Part 4 of Craig’s and my expose on these government land grabs…and it’s something that will shock you like nothing before.

This article has been co-written by Diane Sori.
In Part 1 of our series, “Government Land Grabs: The Truth Exposed,” my Right Side Patriots radio partner Diane Sori and I laid out the groundwork behind the federal government’s seizing of land in the western United States over decades of a take an inch…take a mile agenda used by administrations from both sides of the aisle and how the current regime has labeled PRIVATE landholdings in the west as an “ACUTE” problem.
We were able to convey that information thanks to congressman Rob Bishop’s discovery of long buried emails and documents which help expose NEW land grabs in progress along with this regime’s plans, via the BLM and the Department of the Interior pressuring Obama to use his pen and the Antiquities Act of 1906 to not only steal land from private landholders but, to move some 140 MILLION acres (an area the size of the states of Colorado and Wyoming…COMBINED) from “mixed use” to “TREASURED LANDS” status thus rendering it completely off limits to American citizens.
In “Government Land Grabs: Exposing The Truth Part 2,” we proved that the seizing of western lands has virtually NOTHING to do with the liberal call to “protect the environment” and virtually EVERYTHING to do with government control of natural resources in order to control the people.
The maps we show eliminate the possibility of coincidence in that those lands are rife with coal, oil shale and other fossil fuel deposits that the current regime wants to keep off limits to private landholders and we provided evidence of how Obama and his ilk want to keep us dependent on foreign sources for our energy needs.
In “Government Land Grabs: The Truth Exposed Part 3,” we took our investigation passed oil, gas and coal to provide clear evidence of where our nation’s reserves of URANIUM rest and…
Again it’s no coincidence that the maps correspond directly with the government land grabs in the western United States. We also provide in that article, details as to whom the recipients are of our most volatile natural resources. It’s stunning to say the least.
Now in this, our final part of this investigative series, we will floor you with a few more resources that lie under the ground of the western lands being seized, unconstitutionally by our federal government and how those other resources play into your lives, because of the agenda and ideology of the Obama regime, in a most disturbing and dire way.
Of the other resources buried beneath the hijacked lands in the west is none other than helium. Yes, helium and if you think it’s just for party balloons…think again but, before we get into the true and most disturbing part of this, you need to know a few things about our helium reserves.
Our government has a long history of maintaining control over our deposits of helium and, from 1929 until 1960, the U.S. government was the ONLY domestic producer of the gas at which point, the Helium Act OF 1960 directed the Secretary of the Interior to ACQUIRE and conserve helium using funds ‘borrowed’ from the United States Treasury.
As demand for helium increased through the 1990’s,‘incentives’ were offered to PRIVATE natural gas producers to distill the gas and sell it to the GOVERNMENT but privatization of the process was retooled in 1996 when, guess who…The Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was put in charge of providing crude helium to refiners, regulating helium withdrawal from the federal pipeline…the very same government entity also in charge of grabbing western lands and running private landholders OFF the land. Interesting isn’t it?
For a decade, between 1996 and 2006, congress was able to maintain privatization of the helium in our western states, selling off vast reserves of it until April of 2008, just scant months before the nomination of Obama when Department of the Interior, (the BLM) and the National Research Council formed a committee to revisit the issue of selling off most of the reserve. Then, in August of 1008, just before Obama’s election, the US Dept. of the Interior Inspector General’s Office of Inspections and Office of Investigations found the BLM helium program vulnerable to fraud, abuse and large losses stemming from its less-than-arms-length relationship with a contractor representing several large helium refiners on the pipeline.
Compare the image above where everything in red is controlled by the federal government to the other map image that shows uranium deposits (and anywhere one finds uranium, one also finds helium) to see they match almost to a tee.
So, why is it now, that the corrupt BLM is tasked with the seizing of more and more western land where oil shale, coal, natural gas, uranium and…HELIUM are situated? Yes, it’s a simple scientific fact that where one finds natural gas and uranium one also finds helium (and other resources) buy why would this regime be so hell bent on controlling HELIUM of all things?
Remember…they who control the land control the resources on and under it. Those who control the resources control the energy from its extraction to its production to its price and to its consumption. When the government controls our most important energy deposits…it controls the people and a key component of controlling the people, to this regime specifically, is control over the lives of the people as in who gets to keep on living at all.
That’s correct…HELIUM as well as a few other resources found widely on the lands the Obama regime is making inaccessible to any and all private landholders plays a KEY role in…
YES ObamaCare…for under the grounds already owned or currently wanted by the BLM sits our nation’s deposits of both helium and vanadium…and while most think of helium as just the stuff that fills balloons and probably no one ever heard of vanadium, both are critical to nuclear power plant operation and to the medical industry, and therefore critical to ObamaCare with its dreaded ‘death panels.’
Helium (there are two forms of helium, helium-3 and helium-4) is commercially recovered from natural gas deposits in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Kansas with some of the richest resources under the Texas Panhandle…under land the feds want. And there are helium extraction operations on BLM land in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming, and BLM processing ‘facilities’ in Texas and Kansas. And here’s something of interest, the Federal Helium Stockpile is located outside Amarillo Texas, is owned by U.S. citizens but is inaccessible to all but the feds…hmmm…
Helium-3 is primarily used as cooling medium for our nuclear reactors and thus comes under the control of the federal government. So while it’s bad enough that Obama has put a moratorium on building new nuclear power plants, just remember that even if NO moratorium was in place he could just order the processing to be stopped on lands where BLM processing plants are located.
Controlled by the feds…and if that’s NOT enough to raise your ire just consider helium’s other uses in high-tech applications like in microchip and flat panel display manufacturing; in particle accelerators and fiber optics manufacturing; in providing a nitrogen-free, oxygen-rich controlled atmosphere for deep-sea divers trying to avoid ‘the bends;’ as a protective gas for welding applications and growing silicon and germanium crystals; for lifting (blimps); and for heat transfers…but the most critical of applications could affect one’s very life and it now comes under the control of the ObamaCare 15 fat-cat DC bureaucrats with the power to decide who lives and who dies…who gets medical treatment and who does NOT.
Let me explain. The health care industry uses helium-4 to detect, diagnose, and treat many diseases and conditions (heart, asthma, cancer, and burn patients for example), and is used in the field of cryogenics with its primary use as a coolant for both the magnets in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)…as in the MRI machines used to detect disease or injury…and for cooling laboratory cryostats used to freeze tissue during surgery (frozen sections) so it can be used for diagnosis. And there’s NO substitute for helium-4 in any cryogenic applications…period. Now think who needs MRIs and surgery the most…except for those injured in an accident it’s the elderly and the seriously ill. Now under ObamaCare the use of MRIs and the amount of surgical procedures allowed…both dependent on helium…has been cut. Cut MRI testing…cut the number of surgical procedures…or simply cut the supply of helium needed for both…and you basically have just doomed the elderly and the seriously ill to death.
And so the culling of the herd continues.
Even if the feds were to privatize helium what with current government reserves running low, and with delays in new helium gathering plants coming online because of restrictions on helium withdrawals from the government’s gas pipelines…new areas where helium is found must be grabbed up post haste…areas like in Colorado and Texas. And isn’t it a happy coincidence that a helium gathering plant is being built in Wyoming on BLM owned land.
And with new sources of helium now being found under NOT yet acquired but wanted lands, the feds are working fast to grab up said lands. And let’s NOT forget that by doing so they would in essence be privatized something for themselves that we could NOT access, thus the feds can control the price of even the helium sold to hospitals.
So as the demand for helium grows for medical applications and concerns about adequate supplies increase, the feds need to grab up as much helium rich land as possible and then they get to decide who is worthy of using some of that supply… nice huh…and before I forget, helium deposits gotten through natural gas deposits most time sit alongside uranium deposits…a two-for-one punch land grab wise.
Now as for vanadium…American Vanadium is developing the only ‘vanadium only’ mine in the US (usually vanadium is mined along with uranium) and ‘surprise’…it’s on BLM land south of Eureka, Nevada…again a mine on ‘supposedly’ environmentally protected lands.
And while vanadium as a metal is important in nuclear applications and as a steel additive, it’s vanadium’s medicinal uses where vanadium could be effected by ObamaCare. Used in the treatment of diabetes, low blood sugar, high cholesterol, heart disease, and a number of other medical conditions as well as a nutritional supplement…and with the only vanadium mine in the US on BLM land…if too many people need vanadium-based medicines, rationing of it cannot be far behind…rationing courtesy again of the 15- ObamaCare bureaucrats deciding who is worthy of said medicine and who is NOT…and guess who the NOTS will be…the elderly for sure.
And the culling of the herd continues on yet a again.
So now you know there’s more to these federal land grabs than trespassing cattle and endangered tortoises, and some of it…if NOT all of it…is for very nefarious purposes. And while it’s bad enough that the feds have kicked Americans off American land, these land grabs are the federal government doing what they do best…lying and subterfuge that only the Benghazi scandal can match.
