Barbara H. Peterson/Farm Wars: BLM Targets Private Land for Agenda 21

Re-posted, with permission, and thanks, from this Feb 2 post by activist and writer Barbara H. Peterson at Farm Wars. Posted in interests of uncovering more of the story on the ground in Western states regarding the BLM, land grabs, Agenda 21, mining rights, oil and gas leases, and other such behind the LeVoy Finicum, Bundy, Hammond, and Malheur Refuge stories currently in the news. Also see other Agenda 21 articles here.

From Farm Wars: “Barbara lives on a small ranch in Oregon where she raises geese, chickens, goats and horses. This rural lifestyle is under attack at the most basic level. Federal regulations and the corporate takeover of our food supply with Monsanto’s invasive GMO technology is designed to make it next to impossible to raise animals and organic food.

It is time to step up to the plate and fight or lose it all without a whimper. Choose to take a stand and fight. We can make a difference.”

BLM Targets Private Land for Agenda 21

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:

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:

 Published on May 13, 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.

A Reply to Stewart Rhode’s Recommended Honorable Exit Strategy For Ammon Bundy From Judge Anna

You can see Stewart Rhodes recommended exit strategy at this link:

This is certainly a principled argument that speaks well of Stewart Rhodes and his approach to self-government at the local level.

In our system of things, the true power stays with the individual who delegates to the county who delegates to the state who delegates to the federal government.

Not the other way around.

It is true that the local people have got to have the cajones to take a stand and until they do, you can lead a horse to water, but can’t make him drink.

You can prove that their property rights are being violated by thugs—-commercial mercenaries acting under color of law—-and you can offer to stand with them, but until they find the courage and conviction to free themselves, nobody else can do that for them. All that is perfectly true.

However, there is a bone to pick with the Oathkeepers as an organization and with Stewart Rhodes; I have already picked it once and I shall pick it again.   It does not remain for any one small group of people to determine whether our Constitution and our Law of the Land is respected or not.

That kind of thinking leads to “sanctuary cities” and armed bands of thugs holding mountain passes and robbing travelers while claiming that is okay because that is the “law” of Harney County.

Counties do not have the power to declare their own laws about everything.  One of the things they do not have power to self-declare is to declare our national Organic Laws void in Harney County just because the people are too ignorant or too scared to stand up for them.

And anyone who is an Oathkeeper, including the leader of the Oathkeepers, should know that.

We are absolutely required to uphold our Organic Laws or our nation will be fractured like a crystal vase on a tile floor, cut up piecemeal and carted away. Divide and conquer and ignorance and wrong-thinking will set in and Americans will be reduced to arguing among themselves as we have argued for too many years already.

While we are wondering whether we have the right to assert jurisdiction over the land in Harney County when it is violated by federal agencies, those agencies given an inch will take ten miles, and take our seeming complacency as license to take more.  When it comes to the Federales overreaching on any parcel of land anywhere in America,, it is a matter impacting all Americans from Florida to—- dare I say it?  —-Alaska.

The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution for the united States of America are Organic Laws of the entire nation.  We are all required to uphold them at all times and everywhere.  That includes Harney County.  When the “federal agencies” overreach themselves, it is our right AND our responsibility to oppose them in no uncertain terms.  If the people of Harney County fail that sacred duty, the rest of us must not.

I never advocate bloodshed and I would not advocate that any of these brave men on either side of the firing line sacrifice their lives over a “misunderstanding”.

The fact is that the “Federal Government” —including its for-hire corporate subcontractor agencies— has no right to claim any land within the borders of the organic states and never has had.  The fact that we have allowed this to go on in the western states for over a hundred years is a national scandal of mismanagement, misrepresentation, and malfeasance.  The resolution of the political status of these states and the formal release of their property is long, long overdue.

The Federales have mistaken our long-suffering of the matter as acquiescence. We allowed the Federales to arbitrarily declare “National Parks” because we thought it was good to set aside glorious places for future generations— and it is; unfortunately, there is absolutely no lawful basis for it.  We allowed the Federales to build massive Hydropower projects like the Hoover Dam, because we agreed that we needed electrical power; unfortunately, there is precious little excuse for that, either.

These and other acts have served over time to blur the hard line between where “Federal” duties and prerogatives begin and end, and have allowed a constant, slow, but increasingly terrifying usurpation of common sense and an equally profound overreach of government at all levels against the  private and public property rights of the people all across the nation.

It has gotten to the point where the Federales “assume” that they have rights that they don’t have, that they have property interests that don’t belong to them, and that they don’t have to obey the Public Law or the Organic Law, either.  We’ve let them get away with it so long that three generations have grown up, lived and died, since they were reminded forcefully of who they are and who we are.

Well, folks, it is time.

The good people of Harney County are sitting on a gold mine that has absolutely nothing to do with migratory bird habitat.  They are sitting on a vast fortune of minerals and water that the Federales want.  So they are moving in like the thugs they have become with a veritable army of hired commercial mercenaries masquerading as “FBI” agents long after the FBI has ceased to be a lawful unit of our government— but still “trading” upon our images of J.Edgar Hoover nonetheless—- and they are bullying and proposing to steal land from innocent people and to jail them when they resist.

Let it be noted that the “crime” the Hammonds are accused of— setting a backfire that damaged some property— is routinely excused when any “agency” of the government does the same thing.  Now, doesn’t it seem a little bit crazy that the owners of the land are charged with a “crime” and jailed when their hired help does the same thing and skates away scot clean?

Wake up, Stewart Rhodes!  Wake up Harney County!  Daylight in the swamps!

We’ve notified the House Oversight Subcommittee— the derelicts responsible for holding purse-strings over out of control “federal agencies”— that they are liable for a commercial obligation lien of 200 billion ounces of fine silver per American killed by any “federal personnel” and we have the means at our disposal to make that lien stick like iron.  So, boys, the “odds” are not really that hard to take.  The first FBI agent that fires a shot and kills an American is going to be fried back home and not in butter.  This whole land and resource grab by the BLM is about money and the “Federal Corporation” is going to take it in the shorts if they foment any range wars in Harney County.

They will also be facing international war crimes charges to use the phrase from the Nuremburg Trials —-for “criminal aggression”.  Our Sheriffs are beginning to wake up.  It’s only a matter of time before the rest of the “law enforcement” agencies jerk awake—- and then the hunters will become the hunted, and the Bounty Hunter provisions of the vaunted 14th Amendment will spring to life.

Read it, Federales, and read it well.  These are your rules, not ours, and they are still in effect.  Just today I had a jackdaw from the passport agency lecture me about the 14th Amendment and I had to tell him that the 14th Amendment never applied to any American, ever.  And still doesn’t.  But my point here tonight to all of you who can read, is that the 14th Amendment DOES apply to all federal employees, including agency subcontractors.
