If you don't have time to read the entire article scroll to the bottom and read the summary about what's happening out West. I'll give you the quick and dirty according to this author:
1st, get all the ranchers, farmers, Native Americans, and foresters that use the land for positive, sustainable production off of the land;
2nd, grab up all the resources;
3rd, close off the lands to public access including camping, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, boating, shooting, etc;
4th, sell off the resources to the highest bidder regardless of what that will do to the land, the local environment, or the economy;
5th, collect royalties on the resources in perpetuity;
6th, reduce and eliminate all SLS and PILT payments to the states, impoverishing them beyond belief.)And finally:
Thanks for posting about this. It is important for us to be able to raise the appropriate resistance.
The real goal is to shut down public access to these lands.
The motives are for profit. Rather than manage the lands responsibly, the BLM is stealing it from it's rightful holders via corrupt actions and legal loop holes, and selling it off to corporate interests
The BLM killed hundreds of desert tortoises on purpose.
They could have taken the three million dollars they said the Bundy raid will cost them, CALLED OFF THE RAID, and SAVED THE TURTLES with that three million. If they had three million to destroy Bundy, they had it for the turtles as well but did not use it for that because tyranny comes first. [The tortoises were always just a smoke screen cover story. They want the land to sell land use rights to the Chinese and drilling companies. IT IS ALWAYS ABOUT MONEY! Love of money is the root of all evils!]This is all about Agenda 21. If you haven't heard about it, type Agenda 21 in the Les Femmes search box. They want Americans corralled and controlled and they're using "land management" to force Americans off the land so they can sell its use to the highest bidders including countries that would like to annihilate us. Pray for our country and for those with the resolve to fight this tyranny like our forefathers.
