While BLM spokesman Tom Gorey seemingly frets that it will “complicate national efforts to make sure there is enough off-range holding capacity for wild horses and burros that are removed off public ranges,” he failed to mention that the final report of the Department of Interior Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit of Utah Correctional Industries (UCI), in which about $2 million dollars in costs submitted (and paid with taxpayer’s money) was questioned as being seemingly illegal, was issued Sept. 27, 2013. That’s almost a year ago.
In this report, the OIG pointed out that “we found that UCI’s accounting systems do not fully comply with the standards set forth in 43 C.F.R. § 12.60 for financial reporting, budget control, and allowable costs.”
Why did it take the BLM about 6 years to figure out something was wrong with the accounting at Gunnison prison? And why didn’t the BLM fire this contractor (rescind the contract) last year?
Basically, it was uncovered that this BLM contractor overcharged the government by about $2 million dollars. Why is the news twisted to make it seem like Utah Correctional Industries just decided not to renew their contract with the BLM because they weren’t making enough profit?
Has the BLM even bothered to review the facility reports and mortality reports from Gunnison? Or was the BLM only focusing on the money? More mismanagement by the Bureau of Land Management. More

THE NEED TO TAKE A STRONG STAND AGAINST H.R. 5058
On July 10th, 2014, Representative, Chris Stewart (UT-R), introduced a bill to the Committee on Natural Resources which could ultimately spell doom for America’s Wild Horses and Burros. The bill is co-sponsored by Representatives Bob Bishop (UT-R) and Tom McClintock (CA-R).
On July 15th, the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation and is titled “Wild Horse Oversight Act.” There are 26 members on this committee of which 14 are Republicans and 12 are Democrats.
To find out if your Representative is on this committee please click here: http://naturalresources.house.gov/subcommittees/subcommittee/?SubcommitteeID=5064
Act now and write your Representative if they are on the Committee and state the following in your own words:
The Wild Horses and Burros Act (PL 92-195) became a federal law to protect America’s wild horses and burros for all Americans and future generations to enjoy. Left to the state’s control in 1971, we would have no wild horses or burros left in our country. The same holds true for today if states take control of management.
Please let us remind you that wild horses and burros can ONLY be removed if they are causing damage to their habitat and that can only be proven through monitoring of their habitat by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). This means that setting a permanent AML (appropriate management level), as BLM currently does, is arbitrary and capricious. In other words, it is illegal. More

After the massive backlash over the attempts to establish national, government owned herds of all kinds of livestock, which began in 2008, and raged on for several years, the USDA finally admitted defeat and backed off. At least publicly. Behind the scenes the efforts continued to find that one thing that would give them a foothold in establishing the National Animal Identification System. (NAIS ) Bingo! We got your handy dandy horses that can be used to get the ball rolling!
I have waited for someone to come out and say that “only the wild ones” will be tracked and tagged, and sure enough someone did. The problem with this is that the Bureau of Land Management, the agency charged with caring for, managing and protecting the wild herds, has been responsible for the slaughter of most of them. Very few of our wild horses, and even burros are left. Yet to hear the BLM tell it, there are untold hundreds of thousands of them on the herd management areas (HMA), and they are throwing litters of foals every year! That’s if you take the fabricated “scientific evidence” to heart and never ask why few of these animals can be located and when you can locate them they are on the back of a truck headed for slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada.
Clearly this effort to tag and track equines is a case of taking the path of least resistance. Especially when the BLM has been so successful in convincing ranchers that if they just get on the band wagon demanding the slaughter of the wild horses…why…….there would be just that much more land available for welfare grazing permits! With the cattlemen and the beef producers soundly behind the NAIS for horses, there should be little resistance from cattle producers, or at least not what it was when they were trying to steal their herds a few years back.
A word of caution: IF USDA is successful in forcing tracking on equines, it will be small potatoes to establish NAIS for ALL livestock. After all, equines are not even considered a food source in the US. But those cattle are as are other livestock herds.
This will be like watching someone shooting themselves in the foot, over, and over, and over…………

“Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,”
June 10, 2014 – Friends of Animals (FoA) and The Cloud Foundation have filed a petition with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list North American wild horses on public lands as threatened or endangeredunder the Endangered Species Act (ESA) since the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act (WHBA), which was passed in 1971, has failed to protect our wild horses. Six states have already lost their wild horse populations—Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
“Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,” said Ginger Kathrens, executive director of The Cloud Foundation. “Wild horses are severely endangered but without recognition of current scientific evidence of their native status, they could become extinct.”

Who actually owns “public land”?
As an American citizen, environmental researcher and a life-long visitor to the state of Utah, I appreciate the opportunity to provide input on the proposed Bible Springs Complex environmental assessment. The federal government does not own land in the West. These are not “state lands” and not “federal lands” and not even “government lands”.” They are public lands. The American people own the public lands in the West and they are administered on our behalf by the national government under laws and regulations. This land belongs to all citizens of the United States, not the federal government. More

“With most people in the US thoroughly fed up with the federale’s and their heavy handed, badge heavy, testosterone oozing, swaggering “the law doesn’t apply to me because I work for the government”, anarchist activity, it comes as little surprise to find out that the FBI is investigating those who showed up to support the Bundy’s, rather than those who showed up intending to harm them.”
An act of War
The BLM, an out of control federal corporate agency, appeared at the Bundy ranch sporting AK-47’s, attack dogs, tasers, tanks, military helicopters, grenade launchers and federal sniper teams fully prepared to attack and most likely kill the Bundy’s. Obviously, the BLM was ready to go to war against the Bundy’s; they were not there to negotiate or to make nice with the rancher and his family. And like it or not, this was an act of war perpetrated by a federal corporation against a private citizen.
The video’s showing armed and threatening BLM agents challenging protesters, are prolific. The array of military weapons and equipment was staggering in its appearance. The poised snipers obviously salivating at the thought of squeezing off the shot that would take one or some of the Bundy’s out. Had any protester raised their weapons, the all-out assault would have commenced and the bodies would have piled up.
The MSM dutifully reported that the protesters were “anarchists”, gun toting right-wingers, those who hated government! Maybe they just hate really bad government.
This scene left most of the country stunned, appalled at the apparent overkill of the situation at hand and the more than apparent intent to wipe this family out. This was to have been a muscle flexing, you can’t do anything to stop us, massacre. It was to teach us all a lesson: The law does not apply to federal agency’s or agents.
Where was the sheriff? Where were state officials? The governor? oh yeah…they were all gravely concerned……and hiding under their desks. More

Prior to the attack on the Bundy ranch, the BLM, the same one that showed up dressed for war, has had a long running war against the wild horses, not only in Nevada, but also in virtually every other western state. Repeatedly violating the Wild Horse & Burro Act of 1971 by chasing, terrorizing, capturing, and sending to slaughter thousands of wild horses, the BLM has been held above the law (anarchism) by successive courts.
I woke this morning wondering if the talking heads at MSNBC had survived the night, after the Cliven Bundy implosion yesterday. Bundy, who made remarks pertaining to slavery, had caused MSNBC to nearly burst into virtual flames. It was the same on almost every other cable news station. I can’t even think of what must be happening at the Southern Poverty Law (Lie) Center.
When the smoke settled, politicians everywhere had run for cover. Most had remained silent during the government sponsored terrorism of the Bundy’s. Few had had the jewels to come out in defense of this family against government thugs. Those that had, quickly disappeared into the shadows. Apparently, it is ok for the BLM to launch a full scale attack on one lane rancher, but “racism” is kryptonite for the politically connected.
For two days MSNBC hung a dialogue box on the screen with the words “welfare rancher” emblazoned in it regardless of whom was speaking on the Bundy issue. That was followed with the word “racist”.
So there you have it.
It wasn’t that the BLM had laid siege to the Bundy ranch with more than 200 “troops”, tanks, grenade launchers, AK -47‘s, and paid Blackwater style assassins to take the last remaining rancher off the land in Clark County, Nevada.
It wasn’t that a federal militarized agency, militarized for use against the public, had shown up on private land over a dispute with every intention of stealing every one of Cliven Bundy’s cattle, killing them, and most likely the family along with them in order to put him off the land and out of business…….it was that Bundy was a racist.
Well. That makes all the difference in the world. No wonder the BLM thugs showed up geared for war as if they were prepared to fight a battle in the mid-east.
Why did you steal those cows?

“Bundy’s situation was analyzed “legally” and politically for propaganda value before orders were given to the BLM to set this giganticus raticus fornicus in motion. Long-term, there’s mind prep unfolding here similar to the staged city lock-down in Boston and Sandy Hoax.
The BLM was handed a plan.”
Rancher Cliven Bundy maintains Nevada, not the feds, owns the land where his cattle graze. Regardless of a lower federal court’s ruling against him ( and against this Nevada rancher, the BLM raid on his ranch and the killing of his cattle isn’t about fees—it’s about using turtles to put him out of business.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA)” are blackjacks—along with the fed’s bait and switch “conservation easements” scam —that are used in tandem by government to either drive ranchers, farmers, and private property owners off their land, or to take control of their land with “model” conservation easements that leave government in charge of what they can or cannot do on a piece of property that might have been in their family for a century; driving its value through the floor in the process.
The feds have also attempted to add the Clean Water Act to their bag of unconstitutional thefts in the past, but the Supreme Court ruled against them twice. The first time in a 5-4 decision against the Corps of Engineers who, citing the Clean Water Act and the EPA’s Migratory Bird Rule as their authority, tried to stop a consortium of Chicago municipalities from using an abandoned sand and gravel pit for a solid waste disposal site by invoking the Commerce Clause that would have given the feds authority over such water; arguing that migratory birds needed the gravel pit water, and that protection of migratory birds was “…a national interest of very nearly the first magnitude…and millions of people spend over a billion dollars annually on recreational pursuits relating to migratory birds.”
The Court didn’t buy it, saying: “…we find nothing approaching a clear statement from Congress it intended the (sic, Clean Water Act) to reach an abandoned sand and gravel pit…to claim federal jurisdiction over ponds and mud flats falling within the “Migratory Bird Rule” would result in significant impingement of the state’s traditional and primary power over land and water use.”
In Rapanos v. United States , John A. Rapanos backfilled a portion of his 54 acres in Michigan prior to development. The nearest body of navigable water was 11 to 20 miles away. Government regulators informed Mr. Rapanos that his “. . .saturated fields were waters of the United States that could not be filled without a permit.”
The Supreme Court ruled against them again.
Now, the feds have ignored these two Supreme Court rulings and are trying to again take control of all waters in the U.S..
The BLM’s turtles—of which there are “only” about 100,00 left —have littered Nevada’s landscape with ranching casualties. Bundy’s ranch and lease—the only one left out of 50 in the area—are teetering at the edge of this bone pile. More

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” –Barack Obama, “Obama’s Civilian National Security Force“
Domestic terrorism by domestic agencies
The civilian national security force was never intended to be populated by private citizens, but rather, by hired citizens who could be convinced to violate the constitution, and your rights simply by virtue of wearing a tin badge and told they were not constrained by anything as marginal as the law.
By now it should have become obvious, that rather than just using our military to attack us in-country, it is far more effective to militarize various federal and state agencies and have them do the attacking under cover of the agency. Claiming they are defending the law, upholding statutes and regulations, military style swat teams from numerous federal agencies have been steadily attacking, threatening and harassing private citizens. These attacks are nothing less than acts of war perpetrated by the federal agencies on behalf of the federal government.
That terrorist you are so afraid of is your neighbor
“If you see something…Say Something”…I would like to report that the terrorists we need to fear are inside the gates.
They were our neighbors, our family members; now unrecognizable as the transformation from ordinary citizen to badge heavy, agency employed, domestic terrorist takes place. And these people are domestic terrorists by any definition. They do not work for “we the people”, but rather, for corporate interests both foreign and domestic. They will willingly violate the laws you are required to comply with, without blinking an eye. The constitution? Your rights? Not even a consideration.
The Civilian National Security force that Obama was speaking about was created under the fake food safety bill passed in 2010, via “Dirty Harry” Reid’s infamous, unanimous and singular vote. Without objection! Every one of the remaining 99 Senators voluntarily vacated the senate chamber to facilitate “Dirty Harry’s” one unanimous vote. Every other Democrat and Republican senator was in on the deal.
And here’s how “Dirty Harry” pulled off the hostile takeover of agriculture By Fred Kelly Grant | December 21, 2010
“Then, on the floor of the Senate in the late afternoon, early evening of Sunday, December 19, Senator Reid called the Recycling bill for a vote and there was no objection from the two other Senators who were on the floor. So by unanimous consent HR 2751 was passed. Then Senator Reid moved for reconsideration with the vote to be tabled. This was granted by the same unanimous consent because there was no other Senator on the floor. Then Senator Reid offered without objection amendment number 4890 which substituted S. 510 the Food Safety Bill for the Recycling Bill. Without objection, then the amendment was passed and the Food Safety Bill had been substituted for the Recycling Bill. Reid moved that the bill be read for the third time and asked for the question. Without objection, the bill passed, and the Food Safety Bill was on the way back to the House.”
The result? The militarization of federal agencies in preparation for the coming assaults on family and independent food producers and on private property rights. This bill had little to do with food safety and much to do with assembling the in-country attack units now employed by USDA, FDA, EPA and the notoriously corrupt BLM. More
