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.

IMPEACH THE BUM IMMEDIATELY!   Then we can begin reversing every EO & illegal law he has passed.   We The People are pizzed off!

Check out how they are using the EPA, Clean Water Act to control what you can do on your land even your yard.

Oh wow, its Mangus, hey how ya doing?


Nothing will be done other than hand wringing.

   The Congress has abdicated its powers to the Obamy for his pleasure. The leadership of the GOP is totally in Obamys' pocket GET RID OF THE USELESS BASTARDS AND PUT SOMEONE WHO ISN''T SPINELESS.

 Obama Is The UN.'S flunkie This is a Land grab for the UN. not the Gov.

For Texas it was an "IN YOUR FACE" theft.   You watch, Obama will commission a statue of himself to be built on that "government-held land so he can run it up Texans' butt.

GOP slams the Obama land Grab..............

Impeach Obama for his crimes and you won't have to deal with his land grabs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have fools in congress Dem as well as Repub. who are afraid of Obama and decide to do nothing to stop him, so he continues to cause more damage on Americans.


The GOP may SLAM Obama over the 'latest' land grab but they Will Do Nothing But Talk & Wring Their Hands while thinking of the money they will get for doing nothing

Does ANYONE really believe Obama comes up with all this take away and destruction of our Country plans????

We sit and express anger and berate Obama, but it's not just Obama.   What has to be kept in mind is THAT it IS NOT JUST OBAMA!!! In your thoughts, remember to keep looking behind the scenes at the players that Obama has put in place to support his ambitions, starting with Valerie Jarett.!

In 2014 the population of the United States was reported to be 318.85 million people.  Of that 318.85 million people we have elected less than 600 to represent us as President, VP and our Congress. 

How stupid must a Country of 318.85 million people be to let less than 600 people destroy not only our Country --- BUT US AS WELL!!!!!  The problem is Washington is not listening due to their "Personal gain" being put to risk, and so they ARE NOT HEARING US OR OUR SINCERITY!!!

The only way to "Rattle their Cages" is to "Rattle their phones" expressing our objections in a terse and matter of fact tone of voice!!!  The more calls the more impact!!!!

Only land gov should have is white house area and some government building areas.....Why would they need more?

Found it, Ms. Dee, we have issue, I will share it soon.

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

( – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
