Texas AG Tells BLM 'Come and Take It'

The BLM is now getting push back from Texas for attempting to seize 90,000 acres along the Red River in Texas. The Bundy's were just the start.
“I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.

Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab.

“I am deeply concerned about the notion that the Bureau of Land Management believes the federal government has the authority to swoop in and take land that has been owned and cultivated by Texas landowners for generations,” General Abbott wrote. “The BLM’s newly asserted claims to land along the Red River threaten to upset long-settled private property rights and undermine fundamental principles—including the rule of law—that form the foundation of our democracy. Yet, the BLM has failed to disclose either its full intentions or the legal justification for its proposed actions. Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box.”

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas, General Abbott said, This is the latest line of attack by the Obama Administration where it seems like they have a complete disregard for the rule of law in this country ...And now they’ve crossed the line quite literally by coming into the State of Texas and trying to claim Texas land as federal land. And, as the Attorney General of Texas I am not going to allow this.

Expect more as people start to revolt.

Are you ready?

Why Are The BLM Feds Wearing III Patches?! (Solved)

New photos from the BLM Ranch War in Nevada show Federal Goons (now identified as US Park Police - see first Update below) wearing a type of III patch on their right shoulder.

Anyone have any specific info on this, as these clearly are NOT III%ers. (see Update 2 at the bottom of the page. We may have an answer)

 More photos and the story of the standoff can be found here.

The Federal Goons are going to come back, according to Sheriff Mack.

Get ready.

UPDATE: Anonymous at 19:11 is correct. These are US Park Police as indicated by the patch on the inside left sleeve.

UPDATE 2: Hugo de Root at 20:21 may have the answer. The USFS is divided into 10 Regions. Region 3 consists of Arizona and New Mexico. They may have been sent into Region 4 to assist. The III patch they are wearing is most likely the patch for Region 3. Thanks guys.

BLM Ends Roundup of Bundy Cattle

The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years.

The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte.

The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy's son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents.

Another woman said she was thrown to the ground by an officer.

With more Bundy supporters pouring in from around the country, safety concerns began to grow.

The I-Team has learned the deal to end the gather was brokered by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie.

According to sources, the BLM wants to proceed with the sale of the cattle already gathered during the roundup but is reportedly willing to share the revenue from the sale with Bundy.

Sheriff Gillespie has been negotiating with Bundy behind the scenes for months reached a tentative agreement Friday night, though Bundy insisted the sheriff come to his ranch to finalize the arrangement face-to-face.

The two men meet Saturday to discuss the agreement prior to a public announcement.

In its statement, the BLM said its actions this past week were progress in enforcing two court orders to remove the trespassing cattle from public land.

The agency director also asked that everyone involved in the dispute remain peaceful and law-abiding.


They fear the people when they mobilize. Lessons to be learned.

BLM Stealing Land in Texas Too

The Red River is the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma…or is it?

Byers, Texas along the Red River — The BLM stole 140 acres of the Tommy Henderson ranch thirty years ago. They took his land and paid him absolutely nothing. He sued and lost. Now the BLM is using that court case as precedent to do it again. The problem is, the land they want to seize is property that ranchers have a deed for and have paid taxes on for over a hundred years.

The BLM claims that about 90,000 acres (116 miles along the Red River)have never belonged to Texas in the first place. They will seize the land and it will seriously change the boundaries between the two states.

(the rest here)

Not surprised.
