Rep. Nunes: US faces largest threat level since 9/11

Rep. Nunes: US faces largest threat level since 9/11   The cache of intelligence from Bin Laden despite requirements for expedited release has been slow-rolled by the Obama administration.  It could have and should have been released long ago. The information found in those documents should have been already released to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee at a minimum.  Any decisions on military and Iranian treaty could have been affected by having access to the complete cache.  Outcomes would possibly have made a large difference in the treatment and understanding the players and their objectives. Obama has deliberately stopped … Continue reading

Silence on Hillary’s Uranium Deal

Before We Forget One Year of Silence on Hillary Clinton Uranium Deal Breitbart Peter Schweizer May 1, 2016 For more than a year, the mainstream media has failed to ask Hillary Clinton some very basic questions about a series of extremely troubling deals. Why? Two New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporters, Jo Becker and Mike McIntire, did their own digging. What they found confirmed what I had reported in my Clinton Cash book. In short, here was what you might call a radioactive scandal. It included secret donations, the Russian government, foreign financiers, more than $145 million, and Bill … Continue reading

Battle Between Economy And Environment – Part 1

  “The ironically-named Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2013 (H.R. 687), gave the 2,400-acre sacred site to Resolution Copper in exchange for several parcels of land scattered around the state of Arizona. The bill was attached as a rider to the annual must-pass National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passed in the Senate by a vote of 89-11 on December 11 and signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 19. Oak Flat is part of the Tonto National Forest, rugged and spectacularly beautiful land that is one of the most visited public forests in the country. … Continue reading

EPA Battling Farmers in Virginia

From The Federalist: Pendleton County, West Virginia, is home to 540 farms. The average farm in the county has a net income of around $45,000 a year. On either coast, that’s not an impressive income, but those farms are important to Pendleton County, where the median household income is $30,429. The county is in the Chesapeake Bay watershed and, consequently, in the crosshairs of a massive and detailed EPA blueprint to alter the waters of the bay. The plan, an outgrowth of an executive order President Obama signed shortly after taking office, divides the Chesapeake watershed into thousands of small … Continue reading

South Dakota Ranchers Question BLM Double Standards

From NorthernAG.net: The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association sent letters this week to congressional delegates, the U.S. Attorney General’s office and the South Dakota Attorney General’s office questioning what they call “egregiously unbalanced response of federal land management agencies” and supporting the claims South Dakota ranchers made for compensation after the 2013 Pautre Fire burned nearly 10,000 acres of federal and private land. “There is a big double standard being applied in these government land agencies,” said Stockgrowers President Bill Kluck. “We cannot support the use of terrorism laws against a family ranch while forest service staff are just allowed to … Continue reading

BLM Has a History of Bullying Ranchers

Since the standoff incident in Oregon has put ranchers and the BLM back in the spotlight, you might be interested to know that the BLM has quite a history of bullying ranchers, primarily in the West that goes far beyond the Bundys and the Hammonds. Western ranchers often face-off against federal officials because they have to enter into deals with the government over water rights, grazing permits, endangered species protection and many more issues since about half of the lands are federally owned. This means that it’s easy for federal employees to make life hard for ranchers as environmental laws … Continue reading

More Government Land Grabs in Nevada

This comes from The Blaze, published on Sep. 7th. The U.S. Air Force is giving an ultimatum to the owners of a remote Nevada property that over time has been surrounded by a vast bombing range including the super-secret Area 51. The Sheahan family is being told to take a $5.2 million “last best offer” for their property by Thursday — or the government will seize it through condemnation. The owners include descendants of a couple who lost their hardscrabble mining enterprise after the Air Force moved in in the 1940s. Nuclear tests then began in 1951, their mine mill mysteriously … Continue reading

Rancher Owes $16M in Fines to EPA for Pond on His Ranch

From Fox News: A rancher is taking the Environmental Protection Agency to federal court, asking a judge to stop the agency from fining him more than $16 million because he built a small pond on his property. Andy Johnson of Fort Bridger, Wyoming says he made sure to get the proper permits from his state government before building the pond. After all, this is America in the 21st century, and nothing done on your own property — certainly when it involves the use of water — is beyond government concern. Johnson is facing millions in fines from the federal government … Continue reading

Federal Judge Blocks Obama’s Water Rule

From The Hill: A federal judge in North Dakota acted late Thursday to block the Obama administration’s controversial water pollution rule, hours before it was due to take effect. Judge Ralph Erickson of the District Court for the District of North Dakota found that the 13 states suing to block the rule met the conditions necessary for a preliminary injunction, including that they would likely be harmed if courts didn’t act and that they are likely to succeed when their underlying lawsuit against the rule is decided. The decision is a major roadblock for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and … Continue reading

Texas Rancher Wins 30 Year Battle with BLM – Gets Land Back

From Breitbart: Some of you may remember our post from last April, after the Bundy Ranch-BLM standoff, about a Texas rancher who had his land in north Texas taken from him by the BLM, even though he had proof of ownership. Here’s an excerpt from that piece – Tommy Henderson lost a lawsuit thirty years ago and with it 140 acres of his ranchland. The BLM victory resulted in the Oklahoma/Texas border being redrawn a mile to the south of where it had previously been. Henderson received nothing in exchange for his land. Not one cent, and the BLM is … Continue reading

Connecting the Dots on Crimes Against Children

From Natural News When I first read the news about Planned Parenthood harvesting organs from babies during abortions, I wasn’t surprised. As the editor of Natural News, I’ve spent years documenting horrific crimes against children and humanity carried out by various industries (vaccines, pharmaceuticals, factory foods, etc.)… all of which profit from the exploitation of children’s bodies. The real surprise in hearing the news about Planned Parenthood selling off baby body parts for scientific research was not the realization that this activity is being conducted, but rather the realization that the political left in America is perfectly okay with this … Continue reading

Obama Grabs More Public Land

From Breitbart: While everyone is busy watching Donald Trump campaign, taking down Confederate flags and removing statues, O’s been busy scarfing up more than a million acres of our land. On Friday, he named three new national monuments: the 704,000-acre Basin and Range National Monument north of Las Vegas, the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument, a 100-mile stretch of land reaching across roughly 100 miles of northern California, and Waco Mammoth National Monument in Texas, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The White House statement boasted: Together, the new monuments protect over one million acres of public land. These monuments will also … Continue reading

THIS Ought To Get The Moonbats A’ Flappin’

In a stunning reversal of position, the Obama Regime has done something RIGHT, and decided to approve Shell Oil’s petition to drill off the coast of the Chukchi Sea.

You can already bet the ecoloons, Big Oil haters, and the rest of the leftist assholes who voted for the BECS are whining in their wine about now. The story comes from Coral Davenport at The New York Times.com, no doubt the Slimes will be pissed as well.

Oathkeepers on Security Detail at Oregon Gold Mine

From Oathkeepers: As I wrote in a piece last week, the Bureau of Land Management is in the process of another land grab – this time a gold mining district in southwestern Oregon. In Bundy Ranch style they’ve threatened to burn down buildings at the mines if the owners don’t vacate by April 25th. The mine owners were served papers, several times, ordering them off the property, but instead of caving in to the BLM mobsters, they called in the Oathkeepers to stand guard over the property until they get their day in court, which hasn’t been set as of this past Friday. The … Continue reading

Another Battle with BLM Brewing

LockedandLoadedNews.com: “Bundy Ranch” type standoff brewing in Southern Oregon between miners and BLM For the past several years, the miners from the Galice Mining District, about 3o minutes west of Grants Pass, Oregon, have been arguing over who has the rights to the minerals in the ground around Galice Creek.  The Galice mining district is compiled of a number of claims, owners and miners and has been in continuous operation since the early 1870’s, which makes it one of the longest running operations in the US.  This specific operation predates the BLM bureaucracy by many decades in fact.   The area … Continue reading

Hey, Alaska, HERE Is Your Opportunity

Since the Regime is dead set against Alaska developing THEIR natural resources, and as we find out in THIS story, the assholes have ZERO clue about the area involved, I see an opportunity.
