The BLM–Agenda 21’s Stooge In The West

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have written about the United Nations Agenda 21 program in the past. It is the United Nations thinly veiled attempt at land-grabbing trying to hide under the very dubious cover of “sustainability.” Supposedly there are way too many people in the world (there aren’t) and the UN has to keep all the land “sustainable” by taking people off of it and herding them together in mega-ghettos and leaving untold millions of acres unpopulated and unused for guess who? The political commissars who thought all this up, that’s who. Private property and single family homes will be a thing of the past. You won’t need your cars because there will be no place to go when you are not allowed out of the city limits. Those of you who follow this sort of thing already know the drill.

However, in this country it seems there are lots of folks, most particularly in the West and the South, who put some value on private property, particularly if it has been in their  families for generations. And the Agenda 21 spooks need someone to be able to deal with that sticky situation. It seems, at least in the West, they have found their stooge of choice to help them divest people of their property–and no one is supposed to connect the dots between Agenda 21 and the Bureau of Land Management–an organization that has managed to make itself almost universally despised west of the Mississippi–and not without reason.

I recently read an article by Tim Brown, published on https://sonsoflibertymedia.com back on October 15, 2016. It quotes a Nevada assemblywoman, Michele Fiori, and she labels the Bureau of Land Management a “Domestic Terrorist Agency.” The article observes: “On Thursday morning, Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiori stood on the Nevada Assembly floor to point out several things regarding the Oregon occupation, the Bundy Ranch siege and the sheriffs who were involved in both. She also pointed out at the center of both of them was the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and she referred to them as one of several ‘Domestic Terrorist Agencies.’ I stand in support of and know that Blue Lives Matter…But there have been Sheriffs that hand their elected positions over to the Federal Government and some of the outcomes have been fatal. Sheriff David Ward of Harney County did just that. Under his watch a man, Lavoy Finicum, was murdered.” And she noted: “The Bureau of Land Management has become quite aggressive across our Nation,  from continual harassment of our indigenous Native Americans to our Ranchers, who are just trying to protect their livelihoods.” But the ranchers believe in  private property rights and that is becoming a no-no more and more.

Another article, this one by Michael Snyder on April 23, 2014 on https://freedomoutpost.com/agenda-21-blm-land-grabbing-endgame pretty succinctly lays it all out. Mr. Snyder says “Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as Agenda 21, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophoy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of ‘sustainable development.’ In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors. The rest of the planet will be left to nature. To achieve this goal, a massive transfer of land from private landowners to the federal government will be necessary.” What do you think this will do to our ranchers and farmers in the West, or even here in Louisiana where I live?

And Snyder adds “So the conflict between rancher Cliven Bundy and the BLM is really just the tip of the iceberg. The reality is that the BLM has their eyes on much bigger prizes.” There was the BLM’s attempted land grab along the Texas-Oklahoma border back a few years ago.

Snyder noted that  the feds claim to own 84% of the state. In Utah they claim 57% of the state and in Alaska they claim 69%, and 53% in Oregon, to mention a few.

The federal government flat out doesn’t need any more land. They’ve got way too much as it is. But there is this constant obsession to grab more and more–so the dictates and agenda of Agenda 21 can be fulfilled. In fact, let’s be honest–they want it all and ranchers, farmers, miners, or folks that just want a little retirement place down on the bayou or out in country will just have to go. End of conversation! And besides they will be dispensing with lots of people with independent ideas–and that just won’t float in a UN-dominated environment.

So just remember, when the BLM comes along to wrest your land from you, who they are really working for, and brother, no matter what they say, it ain’t you!

Federal Fertilizer Thrown at Bundys–Part two

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The judge was forced to admit that the federal prosecutor had really screwed up in regard to the evidence they had “forgotten” to turn over, which just happened to violate the due process of the Bundys. You might be tempted to wonder what was in that evidence. Well, it included–records about the federal surveillance at the Bundy Ranch; records about the presence of government snipers (can anyone say Vicki  Weaver?) and internal affairs reports about misconduct by Bureau of Land Management agents, among other things. There was evidence in six areas they didn’t bother passing along. I just listed three of them here.

According to an article in the Arizona Republic for January 8th “Former acting Nevada U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre, who led the prosecution had urged the judge in a December 29 motion to allow his office to retry the case. Prosecutors said Bundy conspired with militia groups and anti-government protesters to block a lawful round-up of his cattle from public lands…”This is nothing more than yet another full serving of thinly veiled Federal Fertilizer (and a poor grade of it at that) to allow them to keep their jackboot on the Bundys neck.

Recently, a BLM whistleblower, Larry Wooten, I think his name is, blew the whistle on a ton of stuff the BLM had been engaged in that they shouldn’t have been, and as you can see,  concealing evidence that would help the case of those on trial seems to be a problem they have–along with other federal agencies. It might almost lead some folks to question whether they could trust their government or not! And heaven forbid that such a thought would ever occur to the public!

In light of this, the judge was forced to turn the Bundys loose. It  had become quite apparent that the plan was to railroad them.

The judge, Gloria Navarro, (no friend of the Bundys on any count) noted that “One undated BLM report described the Bundys as non-violent,”  And she noted  also, that “since the October 1 discovery deadline, when prosecutors were required to turn over all material evidence to the defense, the prosecutors turned over 3300 pages of additional documents.” So, after their deadline was past, they ended up forking over an additional 3300 pages of evidence, most of which would help the defendants. Sounds like they have been taking lessons from Hillary!

So, while the Feds didn’t win at Bunkerville back in 2014, Cliven Bundy got his cattle back. However, gentle souls that they are, the cultural Marxist Feds never forget a loss and those that handed it to them–and they came back with a vengeance.  What else is new??? But this time, although it took them awhile, it didn’t quite work–and now even more people are beginning to wake up to what the BLM and other rogue federal agencies are doing and more and more people a getting fed up and ticked off with an out-of-control federal government peopled with Deep State Swamp Creatures. And so the War goes on–and make no mistake about it–this IS a spiritual battle.  Politics really has very little to do with it.

If a few more Christians would only wake up and realize that, we might get a little more help.

Federal Fertilizer in the Bundy Ranch Standoff

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Most folks may not remember or be aware of it, but back in April of 2014, I did a series of ten articles on http://revisedhistory.wordpress.com about the Bundy Ranclh situation and the egregious behavior of the Bureau of Land (mis)Management. Most folks outside of the West don’t know much about the Bureau of Land Management, (BLM)–ironically with the same initials as the Black Lives Matter Leftist group. Actually, the two groups could probably be comfortably merged into one and, outside of skin color, hardly anyone would know the difference.

Having spent time in the West over tlhe years, I’ve talked to people who were forced to deal with the BLM. For the sake of charity and brevity, let’s just say that, in the West, the BLM ain’t on too many people’s top ten list of popular organizations.

At any rate, in 2014, when the Bundy Family sought to prevent the BLM from killing and/or stealing their cattle, they were accused of leading an armed rebellion against federal agents. There’s the bovine fertilizer part right there.

We have reached a point in this country  where protecting your lives and property against federal aggression  is labeled “armed rebellion.” The Soviet Union had nothing on the “land of the free.” Whether Mr. Trump will be able to do anything about this federal tyranny remains to be seen, but you have to know the Feds will stop him if they can.

Cliven Bundy and his sons and several others were arrested for the high crime of defending Bundy property, and some of them have now endured four trials either resulting in not guilty verdicts or hung juries, but the Feds would love to keep on trying them in their Kangaroo Kourts  until they eventually found a jury that would convict them of something, anything, so the federal prosecutor could carve another notch on the butt of his Federal pistol.

Thanks to evidence that has surfaced, the judge has had to, reluctantly, dismiss all charges–with prejudice–which means that these poor folks can’t be dragged into another Kangaroo Kourt for yet another go-round with the federal bloodhounds. She was forced to admit that the federal prosecutor had really screwed up in regard to evidence they seem to have forgotten to turn over which violated the due process for the Bundy’s–seems there were about 3300 pages of it. No doubt, a minor federal “oversight.”

To be continued.

 

 

 

 

“Sovereign” States or Federal Satrapies?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

There was an article on the Zero Hedge website back on last June 27th, written by Michael Snyder, which had originally appeared on the Economic Collapse blog. It was about how much land the federal government “owns” in our Western states. From the looks of the map that appeared with the article they “own” almost half ot it. The article noted that: “Today, the feds control approximately  640 million acres of land, and after decades of very poor management, many are calling on the states to take a larger role. This is particularly true in the 11 western states where the federal government collectively  owns 47 percent of all the land.”

Yep, you read that figure right–47 percent of it all. For instance, in Nevada, the feds “own” 84% of all the land in the state.  That leaves 16% of the state for ordinary folks. The feds “own” 64% of Utah, 61% of both Idaho and Alaska and 52% of Oregon. By the time you get to Wyoming the feds only “own” a measly 48% of the state. What a comedown from Nevada that must be for them!

I have to ask the question–does the public, ordinary folks, only owning 16% of the state they live in really constitute it being a “sovereign” state, or is it still really a federal territory that has been labeled a state for the sake of convenience (and electoral votes)?

Another pertinent question might be, which is more important–who “owns” it or who controls it? If the general public “owns” it  but can’t do much with it, then the federal government that controls  it is the actual de facto owner, isn’t it? It’s somewhat akin to the situation with the property tax that I have written about before on several occasions. You “own” your house and possess a deed with your name on it saying you own it. Yet, if you fail to pay the yearly governmental rent then some unit of government can come and take “your” property and do what they will with it. So, in the long run, who is the real owner–the man with his name on the deed–or the governmental agency that can take it away from him if he doesn’t pay their yearly “rent?” Mostly, we don’t want to think about this kind of thing. We should.

There was an article in the New York Times for August 25th of this year about Trump’a new Secretary of the Interior proposing shrinking of four national monuments in the West–so designated by King Barack the First (and hopefully the last). One of these was the Bears Ears, over west of Blanding, Utah. You can find it on your road atlas. Obama created a national monument there that was 1.35 million acres in size–land locked up so the public could do nothing with it.  Mr. Zinke, Trump’s Secretary of the Interior wants to reduce the Bears Ears monument to 160,000 acres. I hope he makes it, but even 160,000 acres is a lot for a monument with the Bears Ears as its centerpiece.  It’s pretty country there. We’ve been through some of it several times over the years, but it doesn’t rate another 160,000 closed-down acres for a national monument. Cutting it in half and designating half of it for a monument at the Bears Ears would be plenty, but then that wouldn’t give the feds control over all the 1.35 million acres–and control is what they really want. Control in the name of creating new “public’ monuments and “recreation areas” where you can only go if you follow their rules.

The owner of Land & Livestock international (look it up on the internet) has observed that “Transferring these lands to the States would be a great improvement, but would not necessarily be the best ultimate end…These lands need to be returned to their rightful owners (and/or their heirs and assigns)–the families who have 4 or 5 generations of sweat equity in the lands (or those who have rightfully purchased those property rights through  voluntary exchange). I am hopeful but I doubt seriously that we will ever see it happen.”

In the case of some of that “public” land near the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, one might be led to question just how much of this “public” land has been of use to Harry Reid and his son, or to Hillary with her Uranium One deal. Lots of big bucks being made there off some of that land that, we the public, supposedly own.

It’s Really One Socialist Party With Two Names

by Al Benson Jr.

We supposedly have two different major political parties in this country–Republicans and Democrats–and their views on most anything are purported to be widely divergent. That “fact” is supposed to insure that we have “democracy” in Amerika. This fable has been perpetuated for decades by the media and our “educational” establishments. Folks, I must admit that I firmly believe this fable is a farce to fool the gullible who naively think that if there are two political parties out there then they really have a choice when they vote. This charade has been cleverly played out in every election at least since the Spanish American War and probably a few before it.

The ruling One World Government Elite in this country long ago learned that as long as they continued to give the American voting public some form to go by then they could eat out the real substance of the system and no one would ever notice, or at least not enough would notice to make any tangible difference. And it has worked, in part because we have a governmental “education” system that does not and will not teach those committed to its care the ability to think critically. The current government school system teaches kids what to think rather than how to think and, I mean, after all, why would anyone even want to think anything that contradicts what Big Brother has told us is the “truth?” After all, how dare we!

In the last election the voting public expressed their utter dissatisfaction with Obama’s blatant socialist agenda by how they thought they voted. They didn’t realize that, in their repudiation of Obama’s socialism all they were really doing was voting for Republicans that would give them the same agenda while pretending it was different. It was quite evident from the Republican “leadership” in Congress after the election that very little was going to change except a few of the players’ names. It would all continue to be business as usual (corporate fascism) in Sodom on the Potomac. After all, when you finally grasp the truth that one “shadow party” really controls the reins of both major political parties, why should you expect anything different from Mitch McConnell than you got from Dirty Harry Reid? If you do you’re dreaming. It will not happen. Oh, there may well be a few cosmetic changes to fool those who don’t know how the game is played, and those will be sufficient because most voters have yet to figure out how the game is played–and, sad to say, Christian voters remain among the most gullible of all. They who should display the most discernment often seem to have the least–and are proud of that fact.

A good case in point to display how the two parties are really only one party was the vote for the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the new Attorney General to replace “Fast and Furious” Holder. At the very best, all she will ever be is Eric Holder Lite, and she might even be worse. Like all of Obama’s choices for any post, she is fervently anti-Second Amendment and will look for ways to disarm Americans any way she thinks she can, any time she thinks she can find a way to get by with it. I trust her about as much as I trusted that sidewinder we saw slithering down that sand dune in West Texas several years ago. And I trust our present “conservative” Congress with about the same degree of confidence. I’m not saying they’d sell us out tomorrow–they might wait until the day after.

The Senate voted to confirm Comrade Lynch to replace Comrade Holder with the help (or collusion) of ten Senate Republicans. Without their crucial vote she probably would not have been able to cut the mustard and Obama would have had to hunt up yet another leftist to nominate. But “conservative” Senator McConnell and his “gang of 9” saved him the trouble. And I suspect that it was known well beforehand that they would.

An article that appeared on http://www.breitbart.com for April 23rd, written by Matthew Boyle, noted: “Senate Democrats still control the U.S, Senate, election results last November aside, an analysis of all the votes taken since Sen. Mitch McConnell took over as Majority Leader shows. In fact, with two minor exceptions, every single vote that has pass the U.S. Senate since the beginning of this Congress in January has passed with at least–usually more than–93 percent of support from Democrats.” Dirty Harry’s spokesman, Adam Jentleson, has stated that McConnell had done the right thing by pushing legislation that the Democrats can support. So if that’s the case, what really changed with the election last year? We are still being fed the same socialist legislative agenda that Comrade Obama is pushing, only now the Republicans are doing it instead of the Democrats!

That indicates to a lot of people, myself among them, that there is basically no real difference between the two political parties. They both promote the same socialist program. The only difference now is that the Republicans claim they are not doing this when the clearly are. So we have one party with two names but always one agenda a One World Government agenda–a Council on Foreign Relations/Trilateral Commission agenda.

There was a photo in the Breitbart article of both Dirty Harry and McConnell–with Dirty Harry looking jubilant and McConnell looking complacent–like the cat that had just swallowed the canary. And why not? He’s pulling down a fat congressional salary for selling out his constituents so he’s happy.

Folks, this will not change until the ignorant American voter, in sufficient numbers, begins to realize he’s being had and starts trying to do some homework to change that. There are all manner of places on the Internet where the disgruntled voter can look to see what’s going on. It’s not as if all this was totally “hidden beneath a bushel.” It just takes a little effort to begin to discern just how the public is being shafted by our One Party System posing as two parties. I have, in previous articles, mentioned all kinds of places where you can locate information as to what is going on. I’d only repeat myself by listing them all again–and is anyone really interested?

So you’ll get Hillary for president next year and we will do this same game all over again, and even if you get, by some rare fluke, one of the Republican contenders, as Hillary said about Benghazi, “What difference does it make now?”

About Those “Domestic Terrorists”

by Al Benson Jr.

On Friday, the 18th of April I believe it was, two politicians appeared on a show called What’s Your Point? on KSNV, which is a TV news station in Las Vegas, Nevada.  One of them was that bastion of honesty and integrity, “Honest” Harry Reid ( I exaggerate slightly here) and the other was a Republican State Senator named Dean Heller.

You’ll recall that “Honest Harry” Reid (about as honest as Honest Abe was) said that the folks out at the Bundy Ranch were nothing but a bunch of “Domestic Terrorists.” Reid may have gotten a bit of flack from the blanket statement because he went on to note that he didn’t mean Mr. Bundy and his family were domestic terrorists–just those folks that showed up to help Mr. Bundy protect his life and property from what many consider the REAL domestic terrorists, the ones operating under cover of law.

Dean Heller said he considered those that showed up to help the Bundy’s patriots, not terrorists.  However, you are forced to look at Harry Reid’s worldview.  In his twisted thinking, anyone that dares to oppose beneficent  totalitarian government in order to maintain his liberties is, automatically, a domestic terrorist. In today’s skewed political situation all who dare to even think of opposing the Obama Regime’s program for the systematic dismantling of American liberty are “domestic terrorists.” Today, in order not to be labeled as a domestic terrorist you must be willing to become a good little Marxist wannabe, carrying a sign with a big hammer and sickle on it, and loudly proclaiming that those that refused to vote for Obama are all blatant “racists.” To be opposed to Obamacare is not yet treason, but it may well be in the future, depending on what Executive Orders get signed.

So it seems that Honest Harry had a big problem with the folks that showed up to help the Bundy’s resist government aggression (oh, excuse me, I meant “assistance”). Reid said: “600 people came armed, they had practiced, they had maneuvered,…they set up snipers in strategic locations…they had automatic weapons.” Is any of this against the law–yet? The thought that such people had the ability to resist government aggression seems to have scared the daylights out of Honest Harry. That armed citizens might just resist government aggression is one reason Honest Harry and Comrade Obama want your guns.  They want no resistance to their plans to merge this country into the New World Order, and armed citizens (patriots, not terrorists) just might be tempted to resist.  As far as snipers go, well, the BLM had them out there before the militia folks did. Several folks attested to that, but, of course, Honest Harry “forgot” to mention that–besides, under cover of law, they were “legal” snipers. The militia snipers didn’t do anything illegal, but we won’t mention that.

I’ve read that about 100 or so of the militia folks remain at the Bundy Ranch because they don’t quite trust the feds to leave Mr. Bundy alone–and why should they? Situations like the one in Waco several years ago show what the feds are capable of if left to their own devices. Many people feel that all we have at this point is a breather, that the feds will return, because, like Honest Harry, they don’t get mad, they get even–and then some.

David Hathaway, writing on http://www.lewrockwell.com on April 21st has said: “The federal response will definitely come. It will likely be in three areas; two of which don’t involve the Bundy’s specifically. First, a multi-faceted attack will be made on the Bundys; second, a broad-front regulatory response against other land users will be made for the purpose of retaliation against the whole group and as a deterrent; and third, new provocateur deployments will probably be made across the West into similar situations.”

This time they’ll probably send so many people against the Bundys that it will be harder to combat them. The federal leviathan has to prevail, no matter how many people it takes. If they can be resisted then their aggressive power will be gone. And, unfortunately, most of the militia people can’t stay at the Bundy Ranch forever, so unless those that have to leave can be replaced by others, they have a problem.

Second, the feds will now engage in an open display of the class struggle technique against the ranchers in the West.  The ranchers will, in essence, become the new “Kulaks” of the American Empire–to be starved out or driven off their land. After all, Honest Harry and his buddies in Red China need the acreage for new solar farms.

And third, the feds will probably set up more situations around the West like that of the Bundy Ranch, while at the same time, pushing a PR campaign, with the aid of the compliant lapdog media, that paints all ranchers and farmers as horrid, selfish people, who want only to protect their lives and property–something that is fast becoming a “class crime” in our new leftist-oriented society.

Mr. Hathaway estimates that it will probably be in the neighborhood of around three weeks before we are treated to a federal response, as the feds work all these factors into their agenda in a way most beneficial to them and most detrimental to ordinary citizens, who, in case you haven’t yet realized it, have now become the new “enemies of the state.”

The public will be conditioned, as they were after Oklahoma City, to be afraid of the militias, to view them with fear and loathing. So get ready, folks, for the next big anti-militia campaign. It’s all coming soon, brought to you by the same folks that gave us Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Oklahoma City.

“Dirty Harry” Won’t Get Mad–He’ll Get Even!

by Al Benson Jr.

Anyone remember the Sagebrush Rebellion back in the 1970s and 80s? In thirteen Western states the federal government controlls between 30% and 75-80% of the land, depending on which state you are in.

Although I don’t always believe everything Wikipedia says, by any means, once in awhile they get it right, and awhile back http://en.wikipedia.org  said of the Sagebrush Rebellion that it was: “An extension of the older controversy of state vs. federal powers, Sagebrush Rebels wanted the federal government to give more control of federally owned Western lands to state and local authorities. This was meant to increase the growth of Western economies.” As for the current regime in Washington, the last thing in the world they are concerned about is the growth of Western economies–unless that “growth” is administered by their friends who will make sweetheart deals with countries hostile to the US, so that both hostile countries and politicians can make big bucks selling off US sovereignty and helping to destroy the middle class. That’s what Marxism/corporate fascism is really all about, and our “public servants”  today abound in it!

Even Wikipedia sort of half-heartedly recognized the Sagebrush Rebellion as, basically a states rights issue. And what has been going on at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada is the same states rights issue. But the feds, as usual, don’t plan to taking NO for an answer. They didn’t at Waco and Ruby Ridge and they won’t here. They will exert their power in any way they have to in order to show that they run things, and if they end up having to kill a bunch of people off, so what? They believe in the Marxist principle  that the end justifies the means. When they incinerated those people at Waco, including the children, it was all for their own good, right? That’s the way those people think–whatever they do has to be good and right–because, after all, they are the go(d)vernment and they know best!

Comrade Reid (aka “Dirty Harry”) had an ominous message for Mr. Bundy and his family according to http://www.foxnews.com when he said: “Well, it’s not over, we can’t have, in America, people that violate the law and just walk away from it. So it’s not over.” What he really meant was that he was ticked off because all the controversy raised by the Bundy Ranch situaton exposed his and his son’s sweet deal with a Chinese solar farm company and made him look bad. He wasn’t all that happy about that. So he and our Marxist-in-Chief and probably his “Attorney General” will have to find some way to get back at those nasty ranchers and make them pay, in spades, for daring to defy “national authority.” Fox News noted Reid’s hesitancy to speak on this issue and said: “That’s perhaps due to Reid’s  reported lobbying of the (Bureau of Land Management) to change the desert tortoise’s mapped habitat, allowing Nevada real estate mogul Harvey Whittemore to build on land near the Bundy Ranch. Last year Whittemore was convicted of making illegal campaign  contributions to Reid, and the Majority Leader’s former senior adviser was confirmed as the new head of BLM just last week.” Is this a great kountry or what?

The site http://thecommonsenseshow.com carried an article by Dave Hodges on April 14th  that noted: “China, allied with Russia, is in the process of taking over the United States, or should I say that our public officials are giving away the country to them…In my previous article, it was clearly demonstrated  that the Chinese are preparing, among other things, to assume control of supplying America’s energy needs at a cost they deem appropriate. It is a simple business proposition. They own our debt, we have defaulted and they are here to be compensated.”

Mr. Hodges continued: “The Bundy affair affirmed the fact that  Chinese are being handed control of solar energy inside the United States and that this is being facilitated by Senator Harry Reid. The takeover of American energy is being manifested on many fronts, but in particular, it is being concentrated on the takeover of the solar energy industry in the new Agenda 21 designation with the so-called ‘Solar Energy Zones’.” So there is a lot more involved here than the habitat of the desert tortoise–the UN’s Agenda 21 project is their blueprint and that bodes no good for the American public.

As if to reassert what much of this is all about http://townhall.com stated in an article on 4/14 that “Outraged over the heavy-handed tactics, about 1,000 states rights activists traveled to Mesquite (Nevada) to support Bundy. Many gun owners showed up lawfully carrying firearms, and local cowboys came riding in on horses. They were afraid they could be the next targets of  a federal government overreach, and felt it was time to take a stand.” Men, as far as you all being the next federal targets–depend on it–the federal drones have recorded who was there, and after the feds get through getting even with the Bundys, they will come looking for you, especially if you own any land they want in the “national interest.”

Sadly, this isn’t over and those governmental Marxist mentalities don’t quit. Part of our problem in this country is that we do quit and they don’t–until they get what they want–and at that point we all begin to experience what the Communists refer to as “peaceful co-existence.”

The question hasn’t arisen much, but I think it should.  Why should the federal government own so much land in so many states? Once a state has been given statehood, the land in that state should belong to that state, not to the federal government. If you have a state, anywhere, where the feds control 75% of the land in that state, is that state really a sovereign state or is it, in effect, still mostly a federal territory with the feds calling all the shots? What states rights do the people in any state have if the feds still control 75% of the real estate in their state?

This should concern Southern folks as well as Western folks. Seems to me we are all fighting the same battle. Folks in the South fought it first, but we are all fighting it now–maybe on different levels depending how much land the feds control in different states–but it’s still the same battle.  Maybe the Cowboys and the Confederates ought to get together.  We have a lot of the same problems and the same people, in many cases, are causing the problems we both experience.  Maybe it’s time for a Cowboy/Confederate Alliance.

Chinese Solar Farm in Nevada Could Kill Birds—Environmentalists Beware!!!

By Al Benson Jr.
It’s a known fact that many types of environmentalists around the country are very concerned about any project anywhere that might contribute to the killing off of wildlife. Some environmentalists have been so concerned for the lives of various frogs, toads, insects, and other creeping wildlife that they have actually worked to get laws passed that prohibited people from working their own land and making a living because to do so might disrupt the existence of the 16-legged whatchamacallit.

That being the case, the environmental types should be concerned about an article that appeared on http://www.washingtontimes.com for April 11, 2014 that was written by Douglas Ernst. The title of the article was Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds killed, ‘entire food chains’ disrupted. The article noted that: “A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like ‘mega traps’ that kill and injure birds. As a result, ‘entire food chains’ are being disrupted.” The study found that over a two year period over 320 dead birds were found at three different solar farms, representing birds from 71 different species, and it went on to list the three primary causes, which I will not get into here because that’s a different story.

The point I want to make here is that Chinese solar farms in the Southern Nevada desert country have been listed in several articles as the real reason that the BLM was attempting to harass rancher Clivan Bundy off his grazing land. And that bastion of Senate honesty, Harry Reid, christened “Dirty Harry” by some is up to his neck in a deal with the Chinese Commnists in which they get to start solar farms, guess where,–on the land where Mr. Bundy has been grazing his cattle.

We were told the desert tortoise was the reason Bundy and his cattle needed to go, because their being there was detrimental to the tortoise habitat. I won’t even dignify that drivel with a comment, other than to say it just ain’t so. Joseph Farah, writing on http://www.wnd.com made the astute comment: “…I don’t think it was about tortoises…This was about something else. It’s always about something else. Maybe—just maybe—it had to do with another Nevadan by the name of Harry Reid. It seems that the Senate majority leader has been doing favors for a Chinese energy giant ENN, which has plans to build massive solar facilities in that area—tortoises or no tortoises. It seems the director of BLM is Reid’s former senior advisor, Neil Kornze. BLM has posted on its website documents stating the agency wanted Bundy’s cattle off the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations. The agency removed it when the standoff became national news…They were getting a mega-deal. On Alpril 3, 2012, Bloomberg reported Chinese billionaire Wang Yusuo, one of China’s richest citizens and the founder of ENN, had teamed up with Harry Reid to win incentives including land 113 miles southeast of Las Vegas that ENN sought to buy for $4.5 million, less than one eighth of the land’s $38.6 million assessed value. But the story gets better. Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firm planning to build a $5 billion solar plant on public land in Laughlin, Nevada.” So, what it amounts to is that if this land is sold to this Chinese outfit, than China controls this land in the US. They will own it. US real estate will be under the control and ownership of a Chinese “company” but who will really own it an independent company or the Chinese government?

World Net Daily had reported, back in January of 2013 that the Obama administration “…had begun to allow China to acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas resources across the USA.” In other words, Obama is in the process of allowing Red China to have a major interest in our natural resources. What if their “interest” gets to the point where they control some of our natural resources? Oh, no, Washington would never let that happen! Yeah, right! Remember, this president is a Marxist and the Chinese government is also Marxist, to one extent or another. Oh, they may have allowed a bit of controlled “free enterprise” into China because, like the Soviets, they finally learned that pure Marxism, or communism, is financially untenable.

So much in this game really smells. There are some questions about the people that the BLM had out a Mr. Bundy’s ranch. One report I read on http://beforeitsnews.com for April 11th mentioned “…reports that have come out placing heavy Russian accents on the voices of members of the sniper teams deployed by the FEDS; could these be Russian Spetsnaz agents we’ve been warned about the past few years…With China now buying out what remains of America, as Clivan Bundy is now finding out, how long will it be until the rest of their plans will be put into place?”

An Oathkeeper who was at the Bundy ranch said that: “…the FEDS at Bundy Ranch are actually Russians and speak with heavy accents.” And as far as the BLM finally giving up and leaving, an article on http://www.infowars.com for April 12th said: “The Infowars exclusive yesterday exposing U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s involvement in the Bureau of Land Management’s land grab, which was meant to push out American ranchers such as Clivan Bundy in order to make way for Chinese solar farms, was the #1 news story in the entire world over the past 24 hours thanks to the Drudge Report and others, forcing the BLM to retreat from the standoff.”

I’m just wondering, at this point, given the info I read about solar farms such as Harry Reid and his son are trying to pave the way for in this country, being responsible for killing birds in more than one place in California, if Reid manages, somehow, to finagle a deal to get them into Nevada, how will the environmentalists, who are so concerned about animal life, respond? Surely they will be forced to protest Harry Reid’s plan to allow Chinese solar farms in, won’t they? Let’s wait and see. I could well be wrong, but I’d be willing to bet that the environmentalist movement in this country won’t say “boo” about what Comrade Reid and his son want to do, or how much money they will make off of it, or how many birds it will kill.
Why? Because over the years I have found much of the environmentalist movement to be like a watermelon—green on the outside, but RED on the inside.

What happened at the Bundy Ranch woke some folks up. Let’s hope they will stay awake—and active because, as I said in the last article—this administration is at war with its own people. They want to transform us either into a total Marxist state or pattern us after the socialist countries in Europe. Either way, we lose. Let’s let them know we ain’t goin’ easy!

Before I even finished this article I got an article sent to me from http://bobpowell.blogspot.com that stated that the situation at the Bundy Ranch was a test. The article read: “The entire standoff was…a real world exercise designed to determine what kind of resistance the federal government will face should gun confiscation begin.” I can’t verify the total accuracy of this, but it is food for thought. Eternal vigilance must still be the price of liberty.

Update on Federal Cattle Rustlers in Nevada article

by Al Benson Jr.

Just a few hours ago I posted an article on the situation in Clark County, Nevada where the BLM is trying to force rancher Cliven Bundy off his land and to get his cattle off public land. Supposedly all this is to protect a desert tortoise. As more news comes out the desert tortoise story quickly turns into balderdash. And the BLM assumes the role of jack-booted thugs in even greater proportion than before.

According to http://www.freerepublic.com  for April 11th the following is stated: “The Bureau of Land Management, whose Director was Sen. Harry Reid’s former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.”

“Corrupt Democratic Sen. Harry Reid working with the Chinese government to take land from hard-working Americans.”

“Deleted from BLM.gov but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled ‘Cattle Trespass Impacts’ directly states that Bundy’s cattle ‘impacts’ solar development, more specifically the construction of ‘utility-scale solar power generation facilities’ on ‘public lands.'”

“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence  of “trespass cattle” the document states.”

So there is a lot more than unpaid land use fees and desert tortoises involved in all this. Dirty Harry Reid and the Red Chinese want Mr. Bundy’s land for their solar development agenda, so Mr. Bundy and his cattle have to go–simple as that. Interesting that the present head of the BLM just happens to have been Dirty Harry’s former senior adviser. Pure coincidence of course. I wonder how much Dirty Harry and his BLM buddies will get out of this deal. Dirty Harry gets the goldmine and Mr. Bundy gets the shaft! Ain’t it just wonderful that we have such a “transparent” administration in Washington?
