Senator Jim DeMint took to the pages of theWashington Post this morning to raise the alarm about a planned, 10 million acre Western land grab by the Obama administration.
A secret administration memo has surfaced revealing plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres from Montana to New Mexico, halting job- creating activities like ranching, forestry, mining and energy development. Worse, this land grab would dry up tax revenue that’s essential for funding schools, firehouses and community centers.
President Obama could enact the plans in this memo with just the stroke of a pen, without any input from the communities affected by it.
The leaked document lists 17 sites in 11 states that could be designated as national monuments through the federal Antiquities Act. Over 380,000 acres in Colorado are designated in the memo under the heading “Prospective Conservation Designation.”
The memo was leaked by a Department of Interior official to Utah Congressman Bob Bishop.
According to the memo, around 380,000 acres of BLM and private land in Colorado would be subject to a “conservation designation” under the National Monument designation of the 1906 Antiquities Act. The Vermillion Basin, northwest of Craig, and the Alpine Triangle near Ouray are listed in the memo. This designation would close the areas off to multi-use activities including, mining, hunting, grazing, oil and gas development and other recreational activities.
yOU ARE DEAD CENTER CORRECT ON THIS ONE OREN. Where can we send financial support to the "militias", that are advancing to the aid of the Bundies? WE ALL MUST SUPPORT THESE,"STAND YOUR GROUND" AMERICANS.
Are you saying the Leftists renamed a procedure in the Constitution? Are you aware that there's a big difference between a Constitutional Convention and an Article V Convention?
I take it you're not. So what do you propose we do to, as Jefferson said, bind the government with the chains of the Constitution? Should we rely on Congress to proposes needed amendments or for the supreme Court to stop this unlawful regime? Are you saying vote in good constitutionalist legislators?
Or do you want a bloody revolution?
ON THIS YOU ARE 100% CORRECT!
I have been watching this unfold for some time and have wondered when Obama was going to step it up on global initiative UN AGENDA 21. Its Obama's Religion!
WE THE PEOPLE CAN SIDE LINE HIM THOUGH WITH IMPEACHMENT!
Sadly the Democrat controlled Senate would never vote to convict an impeached Democrat president. Even if the GOP, now with 45 seats, wins the majority of seats in the Senate, it'd be short of the 67 votes needed to convict.
Still, I wish the House had the cojones to impeach Mr. (intentional) Obama.
I agree completely with you. The goal of keeping the House and gaining the Senate must be to right the ship of State of its leftward tilt before it capsizes. Bills held back by Reid can be advanced even if Mr. Obama vetoes them. More importantly, it will, hopefully, be a safeguard against far left appointments to vital agencies and courts.
At least if the House were to impeach Obama even though he wouldn't be convicted in the Senate it might send a message to future presidents who'd true to operate outside the constraints of the Constitution. That's the point I was trying to make to Stephen and others who think impeachment stops a president.
As for your comment about the Senate rules, your right on.
The votary of Agenda 21 is accelerating his agenda.
Who you need to see Todd, is the so called people, behind the Musslimes. They are also the ones who own most of the world's banks, and unfortunately, most of the world's governments, and especially, THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT. THESE SO CALLED PEOPLE, ARE THE ONES, WHO CAUSED BOTH WORLD WARS. They also caused our own CIVIL WAR. Google" Secret societies," and become educated, rather than being blinded by the BULLCRAP.
this is all part of AGENDA 21, THEY MUST BE STOPPED
WHERE ARE THE "STATE GOVERNMENTS", THE STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, THE DUELY ELECTED STATE OFFICIALS WHILE THESE GESTAPO EPA AND BLM TOTALLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL "AGENDA 21" AGENCIES ARE LITERALLY RAPING, PILLERGING THE AMERICAN CITIZENS, DENYING ALL AMERICANS THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL "FREEDOMS OF MAN???" MUST AMERICA TOTALLY DEPEND UPON IT'S PATRIOTIC "MILITIAS" TO DO THE JOBS OF OUR DUELY ELECTED STATE AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS???? MUST THE "REVOLUTIONARY WAR" BEGIN "NOW" TO SAVE AMERICA???
