This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land

Adding to his promise of change and hope, President Obama today will give the government more control over grabbing American land and how it is used.

Obama is fast becoming the best magician in the world, first print money out of thin air and now grabbing land away from private enterprise with his signature.  He is expected today sign into law the land bill that merges 164 separate bills for parks, wilderness and conservation projects into one single bill- the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009. 

The Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Protection Act, as it was originally proposed is yet another broken promise of transparency.  The bill has not been made available for more than five days; this time due to the fact he is scheduled to leave for London  Tuesday.   “When there’s a bill that ends up on my desk as president, you, the public, will have five days to look on line and find out what’s in it before I sign it. ” The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Medicare expansion bill also went without posting the bill for five day comment.

H.R. 116 – the full text at http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:HR00146:@@@L&summ2=m  is an act to designate certain land as components of the National Wilderness Preservation System, to authorize certain programs and activities in the Department of the Interior and the Department of Agriculture, and for other purposes.  According to CBO, the 1,248-page bill is estimated to cost $6.4 billion. http://www.gop.gov/bill/111/1/s22  Again with the billions!

The bill will  protect more than 2 million acres of wilderness in nine states and a thousand miles of rivers.  Forgetting that we need land and water management in cooperation with multiple uses, the bill decimates access to the land for energy development and does a tap dance on private property owners rights in the name of conservation.  While millions can not pay their heating bills we will have new national parks, trails, and a monument systems.  In Wyoming alone, the bill prohibits natural resource development on about 1.2 million acres in Wyoming and will take 8.8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 300 million barrels of oil out of production according to the Heritage Foundation. http://www.heritage.org/

Will the State of California rename the soon to be restored, and salmon stocked San Joaquin River of  the Central Valley of California and call it, The Pelosi Valley or Baraq Watershed?  Don’t polish the RV for camping trip just yet, the American Motorcycle Association (AMA) has pointed out that the S 22 of H.R. 146 will prohibit all motorized vehicle access. http://quad.transworld.net/2009/03/29/omnibus-public-lands-bill-scheduled-for-vote-take-action-now/  Forget about hiking and finding an arrowhead, the bill criminalize the casual collecting of paleontological resources of federal land.  

Maybe we can designate another Area 51 in Nevada?  Subtitle G , section 2601 provides for the conveyance of specified non-federal land administered by Carson City, Nevada to the Bureau of Land Management and again, limits the use of motorized and mechanical vehicles on federal land.  Could this be a perfect location for a FEMA detention camp? Another Guantanamo?

In a further erosion of individual State’s regulations, Title IV: Forest Landscape Restoration- Section 4003- Directs the Secretary of Agriculture, through the Chief of the Forest Service, to establish a Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program to select and fund ecological restoration treatments for priority forest landscapes. Requires the Secretary to establish a scientific advisory panel to evaluate, and provide recommendations on, any proposal. Requires the panel to include experts in ecological restoration, fire ecology, fire management, rural economic development, strategies for ecological adaptation to climate change, fish and wildlife ecology, and woody biomass and small-diameter tree utilization.

National treasures and monuments could have easily been declared protected under the 1906 Antiquities Act, without consulting Congress. President Bush in fact, protected more of the ocean than anyone else in the world. First in 2006 when he established the 140,000-sq.-mi. Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument off the northwestern coast of the Hawaiian Islands, and in January of 2009 he created three separate marine national monuments in the central Pacific Ocean that together spans some 195,000 sq. mi.

What about those other purposes? 

Ever hear of the The Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Act? CDRPA attached as a separate bill, and the 14th Title of this 15 title omnibus legislation   http://unite2fightparalysis.org/images/uploaded/TitleXIV_of_HR_146.pdf.  is a government heath care policy shoved into a land act.   No one would dispute the tragedies associated with spinal cord injuries, Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and paralyzing conditions,  but to bury it at the bottom of a land act?  Subtitle C provides legislation to, “establish a population-based database that may be used for longitudinal and other research on paralysis and other disabling conditions- makes rounding up folks a little easier when you know exactly where they are. 

Redefining land laws amounts to creating another comprehensive supra-national government institution. Our laws, economics, cultures, and politics are co-mingling to take away individual private rights, discourage capitalism and disburse more government powers in The New World Order.  Will  governments domain over the land go so far into Canada and Mexico to create the NAU- North American Union? 

World Net Daily in 2006, gave warning when it issued a story  titled “The U.N.’s Global Land Grab”  http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=49100  stating that: The Southern Appalachian Biosphere Reserve, or SAMAB, began in the 1970s when UNESCO recognized the 571,000-acre Great Smoky Mountains National Park as a site worthy to be included in its growing global network of Biosphere Reserves.  Biosphere Reserves, by definition, include “core wilderness areas” protected from human use, which are surrounded by “buffer zones,” which are managed for conservation objectives. Those are surrounded by “zones of cooperation,” which are “laboratories for sustainable development.”

 

Under the guise of a bunny hugger plot and conservation objectives, the government is taking land and the rabbits with it.  What magicians you have elected.
