Top Republicans on Friday accused President Obama of a “surreptitious land grab” after the administration claimed more than 1 million acres in California, Texas, and Nevada, designating the land as new national monuments.

Mr. Obama formally designated the land Friday afternoon.

“One of the great legacies of this incredible country … is our national parks and national monuments. It is something that we pass on from generation to generation,” the president said in brief comments in the Oval Office.

With the move, Mr. Obama has established or expanded 19 national monuments, taking 260 million acres of land and placing it under the control of the federal government. Critics say the administration simply wants to expand government control across the country.

“This surreptitious land grab reveals that the Obama Administration will stop at nothing to lock up more and more land, with the stroke of a pen. I condemn this shameful power move, which makes states and citizens fearful that the federal government can invade at any time to seize more lands like bandits in the night,” said Rep. Rob Bishop, Utah Republican and chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee.

“How this decree impacts people and their livelihoods — including public safety, water rights, economic development, recreation and grazing — should be handled by Congress before a designation, not after the fact. Once again, the Obama administration has put politics above people. Now, Congress is left to fix the mess made by the White House,” Mr. Bishop said.

Congress won't fix anything. All they do is talk, talk, talk. Talk is cheap.

One demonic impostor can do this? The Congress, once again, is sitting with their thumbs up their butts while he goes merrily along trashing this country. Hell, by 2017, Hillary won't have anything more satanic to do at this rate. Here comes the 2nd 1776.

The RINOS are weak on everything. They are part of the political elite ruling class.

rinos are the right wing of the democratic party

You are right! The Left wing is the Democratic party and the right wing is the Republican party and the head is none other than 0bama and the wind under this bird are the justices of the supreme court who hold it up. This is making the great Eagle which has now been turned into a real "TURKEY".

So when they going to stop complaining and actually do what all of us elected them to do and get ride of the muslim commie half breed

"They" will do nothing.  It's " We, the People" who need to get off our lead rears and do something.  Wish I were 30 instead of in my 70's!

I'm older, too, but not willing to sit on the couch while that Communist punk in the WH destroys our country.   I still remember what America was like before the Communist cancer creeped in to the USA via the Communist Democrat party.    I want my grandchildren to enjoy living here like we did before the Communists took over.

Where Have I heard Actions speak louder the words Congress you need to do something about this despot you are letting ruin the Country

Joanne,

See above reply.

Part of Agenda 21 and should be totally illegal.  He is so greedy and in no country should its government have any land.  It belongs to the states and its people.  Perhaps congress should write a law or something.

States Propose Orwellian Law Mandating State Home Invasion On Home-School Families

(TeaParty.org) – Lawmakers in some US states have proposed legislation that would require home visits for families with homeschooled children, posing a terrifying threat to parental authority and freedom in general.

Iowa HF 272 requires homeschool families who do not report to their school district in conducting their home education to submit to “health and safety visits” quarterly by “the board of directors of a school district.”

If parents decline, the proposed law says, “the juvenile court or district court upon a showing of probable cause may authorize the person making the home visit to enter the home and interview or observe the child.”

The law doesn’t explain why a school district would conduct “health and safety visits,” nor is “probable cause” defined.

But the party performing the visit on behalf of the school district would be a mandatory reporter, and the district can collaborate on the mandated home visits with the Department of Human Services, which in turn can collaborate with the state’s Department of Education.

A similar bill calling for a home investigation of homeschool families was recently introduced in Illinois. The visits there would be performed by the Child Protective Service Unit of the Department of Children and Family Services.

Iowa state Rep. Mary Mascher, a Democrat, introduced the bill, which is one of two introduced thus far during this legislative session requiring home visits for homeschool families.

Public schools do not exist to determine the “health and safety” of a child, they exist to provide children with an education.

In fact, plenty of public schools pose serious risks to the “health and safety” of children, whether that be increased risk to seasonal and contagious illness or the incidents of violent crime that plague the nation’s inner city schools.

This law is eerily reminiscent of the socialist systems many lawmakers in Washington would like to mimic here at home. There is nothing more authoritative than the state forcing their way into the home.

Homeschooling is a way a rapidly growing number of parents have found to combat the state-sponsored ideological indoctrination taking place in the public school system, and these authoritarians can’t stand that parents are finding a way to fight back and take their children’s educations, and minds.
