The federal government has been great at stealing land from every state except Texas, and Texas is ready to fight as BLM tries to steal land around the Red River!
BLM, the Bureau of Land Management has had their eyes on the border land along the Red River for a long time; land owned by Texas ranchers for over 100 years.
While this insanity should really come to an end shortly after January 20th,… if it doesn’t?????
COME AND TAKE IT!
National Review covers one of these ranchers ready to fight alongside Governor Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton who are giving the feds one helluva fight:
Ken Aderholt holds the deed to 700 acres of land near the Red River, on the border between Texas and Oklahoma. The plot has been in his family since 1941, and he has paid all of his taxes on it. “It has been running through generations and handed on down to me,” he said late last year. But three years ago, that lineage was threatened by a familiar culprit: the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The BLM is the Department of Interior agency in charge of administering the nation’s 247 million acres of publicly owned land.
Every ten to 15 years, the bureau creates a resource-management plan, which outlines its goals and directives for the lands under its control. And in July 2013, the BLM entered the early stages of its January 2018 plan by notifying the public of 90,000 acres along the Red River that it deems to be federal land, much of which is owned by Texas ranchers such as Aderholt.
Last year, the Aderholts and six other families whose land is threatened, backed by the Texas Public Policy Foundation and the law firm Caldwell Cassady & Curry, filed a lawsuit against the BLM. “My clients simply want to own the land they own without being under the cloud of the government’s claims,” Austin Curry, a founding partner at Caldwell Cassady & Curry tells National Review. “The case has had a very real impact on real people.”
Yeah… I dare you BLM! Texas has successfully kept you from owning much more than 1% of our land, and that’s ONLY for the National Park system. So… COME AND TAKE IT!
With everyone soooo serious lately – how about a little comic relief?
The Flipside with Michael Loftus makes fun of Joseph Clancy, the head of the secret service. This is one of the funniest skits I have ever seen. With Barack Obama heading out the door, maybe the Secret Service will finally get their act together! If not, Donald Trump will have to say, “You’re Fired!”
