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.

It is now 6:53 P.M. CST here in Deep East Texas, and I just now found this email, and have steam coming out my ears!!!!  I will be on the phone tomorrow raising H E Double Hockey Sticks!  The Park Service can't keep the older parks maintained as it is because there is no money.  This came up during Bush's administration.  Water rights and grazing rights are a big deal here, and just imagine the water rights problem in California, who is busy protecting the Delta Smelt!  In the meantime, their farmers can't plant their land, so prices of fruits and vegetables go up.

Just wait until the Communist Obama-loving Democrats put up a statue of him on that confiscated land in Texas.   Won't that make you feel better?  (sarcasm)

Think what you will, but the word is reserved not preserved, for the Chinese and Russians and UN.

Oh no we are in trouble if Congress has to fix it

It will get  to a point where we won't have any place to live besides demorats designated areas, all of nature will be given the land that we worked so hard for. According to the demogoons all other creatures have more rights then we do. They are working on it with the wildlife preservation laws.

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH... That's all we here from these lawless moves by 0bama from congress. We have YET to see ANYTHING they have done to reverse IT!

The States are at fault for permitting this unconstitutional  land-grabbing. No principle or spine. And so goes our liberty and the sovereignty of the States and People.

Somewhere there is a bullet with this bastard's name on it.  I long for the day the two are introduced.

I don't play well with communists, muslims, liberals or democrats.

This is the Left's devious plan to pay back some of the debt to the Chinese. I wonder how they plan to gift wrap all of it?

Rhinos prance dance
Like they care....

Impeach this communist before he can do any further damage to this country.  If Congress needs some guts (for lack of the word I would prefer to use), we can send some up to them.  John Cornyn better be on this for the State of Texas.  He is just a hair away from the wrath of all of Texas for his voting record. 

Funny how it matches up with Agenda 21...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
