Recent events in Burns, Oregon have shed light on just who is “grabbing the land.” Government operatives in the midst of the Malheur Wilderness turmoil have planted a false narrative that the BLM is simply trying to protect public lands from ranchers such as the Hammonds, who are trying to grab it for themselves, and supposed “environmentalists” are stepping up to support this propaganda.

 

But to understand the real story behind who is actually doing the land grabs, let’s take a little ride on the wayback machine starting with this 2010 press release:

Western Caucus Press Releases (2010)

Washington, Aug 11, 2010
Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01), Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus, today announced that he recently obtained the preceding 14 pages previously missing from an internal Department of Interior (DOI) memo leaked last February.  The original document obtained in February by Bishop detailed planning within the DOI to use the Antiquities Act to potentially designate up to 13 million acres throughout the West as new national monuments.  The newly obtained 14 pages further detail plans within the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to completely overhaul the way federal lands are managed in the U.S., including the creation of new ecosystem areas that require the acquisition of new federal lands. The plans would vastly expand the power, reach and control of federal land managers.

“These 14 pages are further evidence of this Administration’s efforts, under the guidance of Secretary Salazar, to control western lands by unilaterally locking them up without input from local residents and stakeholders nor the approval of Congress.   Their plotting behind closed doors is disingenuous at best and flies in the face of this Administration’s so-called ‘transparency’,”
said Congressman 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.”The BLM is only one of the divisions of the DOI that have compiled similar memos.  On February 26, 2010, Congressman Bishop, House Natural Resources Committee Ranking Member Doc Hastings (WA-04) and other Western Caucus Members sent a letter  to DOI Secretary Ken Salazar requesting all relative information pertaining to the DOI’s plans to designate new national monuments throughout the West.  It has been more than five months since the request was made and the DOI continues to refuse to fully comply with the official document request.“The reality is that this is NOT the complete set of documents pertaining to the Administration’s plans to overhaul the way public lands are managed in this country.  We know that other documents like this are out there. We’ve requested them, but the folks at Interior continue to stonewall,” Bishop added.  “My biggest concern is that if they’re willing to let documents this damning out from their safekeeping, they are surely protecting others that are far worse and even more revealing.”  

Page 3, paragraph 6: The sentence, “In order to expand this network of treasured lands to include the diversity of landscapes currently managed by the BLM…,” shows that the   Administration is working to broaden the jurisdictional scope of lands currently managed by the BLM.

Page 5, paragraph 5: The sentence, “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…,” shows that the Administration is constructing a new management structure without the approval of Congress.

Page 6 (b), page 7 (4.), page 8 (3.):  Details planning for further land acquisition and funding mechanisms.

Page 7, paragraph 1; Page 6, paragraph 7:  By their own numbers, the Administration will target the “acute” problem of private landholdings in BLM administered areas to the sum of 412,675 acres, or more than 370,000 football fields.

Page 9, paragraph 5: The sentence, “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,” shows that the BLM will require an increase in funding to accommodate the proposed expanded management of lands throughout the West.


“I remain committed to forcing Secretary Salazar and all others involved in this matter into the light of full transparency, which as these documents prove, is not a place they seem to be comfortable,”
Bishop concluded. “But this potential land and power grab needs to exposed, it needs to be laid out before the public, and it needs to be stopped.”

Please take special note of the section highlighted in red:

Page 7, paragraph 1; Page 6, paragraph 7:  By their own numbers, the Administration will target the “acute” problem of private landholdings in BLM administered areas to the sum of 412,675 acres, or more than 370,000 football fields.

Fast forward to the following, published in 2014:

The newly obtained 14 pages further detail plans within the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to completely overhaul the way federal lands are managed in the U.S., including the creation of new ecosystem areas that require the acquisition of new federal lands. The plans would vastly expand the power, reach and control of federal land managers.

 

 

Now, let’s understand just where the Hammond family of cattle ranchers fit in with all of this. They are the last private property holdouts in an area surrounded by BLM land. The court has declared that the BLM has first right of refusal to buy their land if/when they decide to sell. This is a polite way of stating that since the government is intent on grabbing the land for Agenda 21, everything will be done to get that accomplished. And when the Hammonds can no longer run their ranch due to unjust imprisonment, restriction to water and loss of grazing rights, no one will be able to buy it or even want to except for, you’ve got it, the BLM. And the agency will get it for pennies on the dollar.

By the way, while people are shouting “save public land from cattle and the ranchers” at Malheur, this is what the BLM is actually doing with some of the other public lands it grabs via Agenda 21:

Leasing it for oil and gas interests.

    I’m amazed that people seem to believe we still have a Constitution. The United States government does not conduct itself under the Constitution. It is now a dictatorship being led by individuals who are Godless evil misfits that have given their souls to Lucifer. So, you are just wasting your time with words and documents written as law. It means absolutely nothing to these devil worshipers whose only agenda is to dominate the human race for their master Satan.

    According to the US Constitution, the USG has NO authority to claim ownership of state and/or private lands .. the USG is simply the caretaker of these lands, which means, they only have authority to manage them .. ensure that these lands are maintained for the benefit of the public to enjoy and for wildlife to inhabit.
    Private lands are those owned by ranchers wherein their cattle to graze and by farmers to plant and harvest their crops. The USG has NO authority to claim ownership of these ranches and farms and disrupt the owners’ use of their properties.
    Twice now, the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) .. an agency of the Interior Dept .. interfered in the owners’ use of their properties. In the case of the Bundy family in Nevada, BLM agents stole their cattle, but a Nevada Court ordered them to return the cattle to the family. The second case .. in Harney County, Oregon, was far more complex .. but, it resulted in the cold-blooded murder of one rancher and the arrest of several protesters.

    They have to take an oath of office and or oath to support and uphold the United States Constitution and sign documents to this fact. So where does it say anything about United Nations?
