HOW THE WEST WAS WON OR LOST?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The sovereign states of the West are no more and States Rights are gone. They have been lost to a conniving and corrupt federal bureaucracy that is intent upon filescacoaali_002establishing their own land baron footprint through a maze of un-constitutional and environmental legalism that is meant to isolate western lands for the purpose of controlling people, water, precious minerals, oil and wood products.

And while livelihoods are destroyed, thriving communities become ghost towns and families relocate for the sake of their own survival. But, let’s not forget, it is being done by design, compliments of Washington D.C. which now lords their authority over the western states without listening to the voice of the people. Federal agency “hearings” are but superficial and are a staged formality that is only meant as a sideshow.

Now, let’s just look on the map at the State of Nevada which is right next to California and see how much “sovereignty” is left. The Bundy family and the rest of the other Nevadians know the score. It’s the same game plan that mother Russia and the Soviet Union used on the Ukraine in 1933 when 7 million men, women and children lost their livelihoods and were forced into starvation and died under the tyrannical rule of Joseph Stalin.

Control the Water, Control the Land—A Two-fer!

The banker’s end game is to nullify the Constitution using bureaucratic agencies like the EPA to seize private property and other rights with agency “rules and regulations”—all of which are illegal under the Constitution.

OPINION

Good EPA “laws” (read: “rules”, “regulations”) are long extinct, but if you had to pick one it would be the 1972 Clean Water Act (CWA) passed by congress four years after the Cuyahoga River in Ohio caught fire (Images for cuyahoga river fire burning—it wasn’t the first time) because of the pollution in it.
The Act authorized the clean-up of this kind of mess in America’s navigable lakes, rivers, and streams, and prohibited further dumping of dangerous industrial chemicals, waste, and other byproducts into these bodies of waters. It also allowed states to manage the clean-up of their own waters under the Clean Water Act (CWA), and enabled federal and state officials to work together to get the job done, .
Fast forward and we find today the EPA has redefined Congress’s intent and definition of navigable waters to now include all waters found in America and by fiat, the land it’s on, meaning the EPA now has “control” of all American farms, ranches, and private property, including
►Dry arroyos, coulees, and washes
►Man-made drainage ditches
►Directional sheet flow
►Isolated wet meadows
►Storm sewers and culverts
►Drain tiles in fields
► “Point sources” such as pipes, ditches, channels, and conduits
►Sewage treatment plants
►Waterworks appurtenances such as mains, pipes, hydrants, machinery, and buildings.
►100 year flood plains
►Channels and streams with intermittent or ephemeral flows (but not seasonal flows),
►Nonnavigable, isolated, intrastate waters, including rainwaters, and hundreds of others

At the direction of their handlers (socialist bankers who control the Fed and the government) the EPA, and the president’s EO (that isn’t law) set in motion a crippling set of “rules” and “regulatory” proposals contradicting Congress’s intent of the CWA (which is law), that will expand the EPA’s authority over all waters (including subsurface “connecting” waters), its use, the land it’s used on, and any land it drains from or across.

Meaning if it rains on a piece of land, that land and water and/or its run-off will be under EPA authority.
Meaning if a dry ditch, pot hole, creek, or dirt tank on a rancher’s or farmers land stands water a few days after a heavy rain or rise, the EPA’s Waters of the United States (WOTUS) proposals gives the EPA “authority” over that normally dry ditch, pot hole, creek, or tank.
Meaning dry land drainages that aren’t navigable, boatable, fishable, or swimmable, and that defy jurisdictional need under the CWA, can now be “regulated”.

Control the water, control the land

This is the largest, illegal, private property land grab in U.S. history. Not only does it give the EPA control of the water on private property, it also requires EPA/Corps of Engineer permits if the agricultural industry wants to cut brush, clear land, root plow, burn-off, repair (field) tiles, drill a water well, spread fertilizer, lay pipe, spray cattle and hundreds of other ordinary, necessary, and routine tasks tied to any agricultural operation; all to be permitted, fee’d (charged), and “enforced” by the same unelected, unaccountable, federally paid envirocrats who wrote the proposals; who have no concept why these tasks have to be performed; whose job will be to act as land and water “police”—like the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) acts on behalf of the EPA for “endangered plants and animals”— and issue permits or levy “fines” for “violators” who get caught spraying a pen of cattle without one.
Takers taxing makers.

This EPA scheme is a deliberate shakedown of property owners with forced fees and permits requiring unnecessary time and money.

Like the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the EPA’s model bait-and-switch “oops-you just-lost-control-of-your-land” conservation easements that were monikered as “. . .saving endangered plants and animals and preserving land for future generations”, so to was WOTUS sold as “clean, healthy water for all.”

Pigs fly, too.

WOTUS is about taking control of private property, driving the market value of that land down, and its owners out of business and off that land. “Cleaner water” is the public’s straw man, the excuse. WOTUS rules are purposely vague to give the EPA wide swath with its ax. So much so that interpretations by the EPA’s own employees are contradictory.

Lawsuits will follow but few can afford them. Family ranchers and farmers will be presumed guilty for unpermitted WOTUS “violations” decreed by a federal agency (the EPA) using unconstitutional federal administrative “law”(read: proposals), written and approved by federal bureaucrats and forced unconstitutionally on private citizens (with a presidential EO) who will be forced to defend themselves out-of-pocket in a federal court against federal (contract) lawyers before a federal judge—all of whom are paid from the same federal pot.

A centralized stacked federal deck.

FACTOID: Congress has the Constitutional mandate to pass America’s laws. Legislation is passed by Congress and either signed into law or vetoed by the sitting president. Courts then decide whether or not that law is Constitutional or un-Constitutional if the law is challenged. The presidential EO authorizing the EPA to use a set of vague. illegal, unlawful proposals giving the agency authority over all waters and by fiat, land, in defiance of a 40-year old established law, written and legislated by Congress and signed into law by a sitting president, defies credulity when both Houses of Congress voted against WOTUS, and the Clean Water Act was challenged twice, upheld twice, and twice ruled Constitutional by the Supreme Court.

EPA bureaucrats and the president have neither the power, authority, nor Constitutional right to force these restrictive WOTUS proposals on Americans.

This land and water grab by the EPA is reminiscent of how Bolshevik communists who, after gaining control of the Russian revolution by forcing a numerical majority of their confederates into key positions in the Duma, and placing ‘czars’ in charge of agencies (with decreed powers like those just handed the EPA) took over and controlled the Russian population. That plus the fear of spontaneous Bolshevik-directed genocides in which an estimated 60 million mostly white Russia Christians were either murdered or imprisoned in the Soviet’s Gulags as “enemies (read: terrorists) of the state.”
Communists knew the importance of controlling the land and the individuals on it, and what private (right to own) property would do to their failed, centralized, attempt at governing. That’s why fist-fights between hardline communists and right-to-own Russian property advocates broke out when this subject came up in Russia’s Duma during the lead-up to, and following, the so-called fall of communism.
An excellent summary of this fight over the right to own private property in Russia is a 2001 article by Leon Aron, “Land Privatization”

Ironically, what the Russians were fighting for, Washington just gave to the EPA to regulate.
The first EPA attempt to take over America’s land and water.

The first time the EPA tried grab control of America’s waters, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision against them when they attempted to cite the Migratory Bird Rule as authority for stopping a consortium of Chicago municipalities from using an abandoned sand and gravel pit for a solid waste disposal site; invoking the Commerce Clause—the only power given Congress by the founders with which to overrule state law.

EPA lawyers argued that migratory birds were interstate commerce generating revenue “ . . . of very nearly the first magnitude…that millions of people spent over a billion dollars annually on recreational pursuits relating to migratory birds, and that the ducks needed the water that had seeped into the gravel pits. . .”

This maneuver is called the Commerce Clause gambit that the EPA attempts to use when trying to override state sovereignty and law.

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.”

The Second EPA Attempt to Take Over the Waters of America

Next they tried skirting the “navigational” water definition in Rapanos v United States . John A. Rapanos back-filled a portion of his 54 acres in Michigan prior to development. The nearest body of navigable water was up to 20 miles away. The EPA informed Mr. Rapanos that his “. . . saturated fields were waters of the United States that could not be filled without a permit.”

Again, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 the EPA had no authority under the Clean Water Act to regulate:
(1) Truly isolated, non-navigable, intrastate water bodies,
(2) Any area merely because it has a hydrological connection with downstream navigable-in-fact waters,
(3) Remote drains and ditches with insubstantial flows, and
(4) That federal jurisdiction under the Scalia majority (5-4 plurality) ruling in the case was that the Clean Water Act ends at “. . .those relatively permanent, standing, or continuously flowing bodies of water … that are described in ordinary parlance as ‘streams, oceans, rivers, lakes’” and their wetlands. . .”—waters covered under the Clean Water Act’s definition of navigable waters.

Failing in Congress and in the Courts, the EPA and the president, seeing their proposals had no legality, turned to the EO

Obama’s EO granted the EPA this unlawful and unconstitutional power that’s designed to further erode private property rights—an attempt right out of a rogue king’s, war lord’s, dictator’s, despot’s or Bolshevik’s playbook.

Whatever we say, goes.

This is why the founders wrote our Constitution. It’s not a “living document” as The City and their controlled propaganda outlets (MSM) blare at the public;

to be shredded every few years by gluttonous bankers bent on controlling earth’s resources and people. It was written to keep government and its go-fers out of America’s living rooms, back yards, and off our lands. The banker’s end game is to nullify the Constitution using bureaucratic agencies like the EPA to seize private property and other rights with agency “rules and regulations”—all of which are illegal under the Constitution.

Absent the right to own property and rule of law, you’re left with an “ism”—fascism, socialism, communism—and a central control system for everything, including land and water, that benefits only a handful of psychopathic financial criminals at the top.

How is it the EPA and the president can ignore constitutionally established Congressional and Supreme Court law?

Here’s how and why it’s illegal

Treasured Landscapes: An Act…to steal land from the states

“In the memo, BLM corporation talks extensively about its “ownership” of lands and how this back room deal, meant to facilitate the theft of lands inside the geographical boundaries of the states could be implemented.”

________________________________________________

Dee's Illustrations

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a for-profit federal corporation, issued a memo laying out its plans to seize 10 million additional acres across the Western states including, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, California, and Utah.  The federal government already claims ownership or control of 84% of Utah and at least 68% of Nevada. The document clearly lays out the propaganda to be used in this land theft, referring to the theft as saving national treasures, pristine areas, treasured landscapes, etc.. Sounds really peachy until you get to the part about mining and natural resources, to be stolen at the same time.

Concealing their identity under the appearance of a “public agency”, BLM uses congress and the executive branch to not only hide what it really is and what it is doing, but to make it appear legitimate; lawful, legal.  It is a deception that has gone on since 1906 when the Antiquities Act was passed, which BLM now is claiming as its enabling legislation.   The 1906 Act was only 296 words long and said nothing about how to perpetrate theft of states lands and their accompanying natural resources. 

The question immediately arises in my mind; “How can the BLM claim ownership of land? Doesn’t the Constitution expressly deny the central government ownership of any land other than insular possessions, territories and the ten square mile parcel of land ceded to it for its existence?” Yes it does, but the Bureau of Land Management is a privately owned corporation and is not bound by constitutional restraints.   More

The Great Weaponless Conquest of America

“Conquerors never, never conquer a nation to bring freedom. They conquer a nation to control the masses.”   Ernst Zundel

“America will fall without a shot being fired.  It will fall from within.”  Nikita Krushchev 

From the dawn of civilization ambitious men have set out to rule the masses by the sword, the spear and the arrow.  The lust to rule is buried deep inside the neurons of those who carry the gene that drives them to seek absolute power by any means.  The reason for their butchery and savagery is irrelevant, be it religion, land, or resources, or just plain insanity.  It is just the exercise of raw power for the sake of ego.    

In the name of conquest, kings, despots and dictators have taken the lives of more people and shed more blood than most of the dreaded diseases that have decimated cultures since the early Egyptians.  And now, man’s capacity to kill hundreds of thousands or even millions, lies within his grasp upon cracking the unimaginable power of the atom. 

However, an ambitious man or men, need not shed blood anymore, to conquer a nation.  They only need to exploit man’s ignorance and stupidity and his inability to be aware of what goes on around him.   First, they infiltrate government at every level with their trained followers and set their agenda with new law, after new law.  Increasing control of the masses, over a long period of time is their goal.  They don’t need guns to control the people, they only need willing subjects who are looking the other way.  More

The New Land Rush: The selling out of America’s farmers

If the Chinese acquire large tracts of land here in the United States, food grown will be for import.  This will threaten not only our own independence, but will cause distortions in our food supply and put an end to the local food movement as well.

The New Land Rush

The economy continues its slide.  Unemployment remains high, more manufacturing moves overseas with each passing day, the rate of home foreclosures makes the news every hour.  But there is a seemingly bright spot—farm land values have increased 58 percent from their 2000 levels on both a national and global scale.  Because of this, arable land is attracting wealthy investors all over the world.  They hope to profit by either producing crops or leasing the land to farmers.  Mutual funds specializing in the acquisition of agricultural land have been formed to capitalize on the rapidly rising land values, allowing even small investors to reap a share of the rising land values.  In one way, and one way only, this is a good thing.  Beleaguered farmers have ready buyers if they must sell out and may actually realize a profit from the sale of their farms.  But the problems this will cause to society far outweigh any benefits.

Barbarians Behind the Curtain

Was it the Roman or Greek senate that was debating when the barbarians began to filter in and sit down beside them while their debates were in progress? 

Think modern day barbarians behind the curtain who’ve already taken over  the senate, house, and Washington; who already sit in key government positions and walk the halls of congress; who select candidates for voters to argue over; who provide faux elections for national offices. 

Third party?  Perot was as close as we’ll get and the elite forced him to drop out when he bolted the starting gate in 1992 ahead in the three-way presidential race with thirty nine percent  (G. H.W. Bush had 31% and Clinton 25%.) Later, when they told Perot he could come back in the race, he still garnered almost twenty percent of the vote. (He’d been asked to run to bleed votes away from GHWB to insure Clinton’s election; who they’d determined would be America’s next president.)

Perot’s fast start scared the boys behind the curtain spitless in that he probably would have won the election had he been allowed to run an uninterrupted race; given voter disgust with Washington.  It’s worse today and Oz won’t allow another independent run at the presidency, in my opinion.

The boys behind the curtain also place illusions in our heads. Or did in the days before the Internet. Which is easy to do when you control all the information, money, and main stream propaganda outlets.  More
