Editor’s Comment: Will this latest action, taken by Obama quietly as if in stealth, once again provoke a revolutionary response? It appears that the very land that activists swore the federal government was just trying to take in order to occupy lucrative and mineral rich deposits is indeed highly coveted by President Obama’s faction, at least enough that he wanted it off limits to the patriot upstarts that created not one but two standoffs on the exiting-president’s watch.
The abuse of government power over private property, especially by one individual, is part and parcel of the historical reasons for revolutions, bills of rights and new forms of government.
As Obama prepares to finish his last three weeks in office as a lame duck, it is clear that he is intent on damaging as much of the country as he possibly can, and on clamping down on those who still thirst for independence and freedom. His legacy will be more tyrannical than his cool demeanor and broad smile typically suggest.
Obama Seizes Area Near Bundy Ranch In Massive Last Minute Land Grab
by Alex Thomas
With a stroke of the pen President Obama has unilaterally declared vast swaths of land in Utah and Nevada as two new national monuments, thus putting them under control of the federal government.
Startlingly, the area in Nevada includes the site of the infamous Bundy Ranch standoff as well as land very close to the Bundy Ranch itself. With this move Obama has possibly triggered another armed standoff while also heading off any moves set to be made by incoming president Donald Trump.
A “fact sheet” put out by the White House reads:
Today, President Obama will designate two new national monuments, protecting sacred sites, spectacular scenery, and important natural and cultural resources in the desert landscapes of southeastern Utah and southern Nevada. The creation of the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah and the Gold Butte National Monument in Nevada follow years of robust public input from tribes, local elected officials, and diverse stakeholders, and draws from legislation introduced in Congress.
In addition to protecting more land and water than any Administration in history, President Obama has taken unprecedented steps to elevate the voices of Native peoples in the management of our natural resources. Today’s actions build on this important work, and further demonstrate the President’s commitment to protecting sacred sites and our land, water and wildlife for future generations.
Gold Butte National Monument
Located in Clark County, Nevada just northeast of the outskirts of Las Vegas, the Gold Butte National Monument spans nearly 300,000 acres and will protect significant cultural resources, important geological formations, and vital plant and wildlife habitat. The monument will provide critical protections for important Native American historical sites, as well as areas that are currently used for traditional purposes by tribes. Notably, the area includes abundant rock art, archeological artifacts, and rare fossils, including recently discovered dinosaur tracks dating back hundreds of millions of years. In recent years these resources have faced increasing damage from threats such as deliberate destruction and vandalism, and today’s designation will help ensure that these cultural and archaeological treasures are better protected.
The monument will serve as an important connection between already protected lands, including Lake Mead Recreation Area and the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument across the Arizona border, protecting key wildlife corridors for large mammals such as desert bighorn sheep and mountain lions, and vital habitat for the threatened Mojave desert tortoise. Additionally, the monument will protect important historic resources. Structures that detail western ranching heritage can still be found in the Gold Butte area, as well as an early twentieth-century abandoned mining town and sites associated with Spanish explorers from the late eighteenth century.
Today’s action follows decades of local support from tribes, local stakeholders and conservationists, and draws from legislation that was first introduced in 2008.
Right now it is extremely difficult to confirm exactly how much of the land in and around the Bundy Ranch is now a national monument but a map put out by the Las Vegas Review seems to line up directly with the Bundy grazing allotment.
“Obama just designated the Bundy Ranch a national monument”
Vocativ is reporting that multiple individuals involved with the original Bundy standoff have already made it clear that they plan to stand up to this latest federal tyranny.
“Members of the self-styled militias that swarmed to the aid of Cliven Bundy outside of Las Vegas in 2014 — and who later joined the rancher’s sons to seize a federal wildlife refuge in rural Oregon — said they were readying for another showdown. Obama’s move on Wednesday to protect 300,000 acres of federal land around Gold Butte, close to the Bundy ranch, comes as two dozen people await trials for their roles in the Nevada and Oregon standoffs, which emboldened right-wing militants across America and became a powerful symbol of anti-government sentiment,” read the report.
“Get your gear ready,” wrote Jon Ritzheimer, one of the men who used handguns and assault rifles to hole up in Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for 41 days last year. “Obama just designated the Bundy Ranch a national monument.”
“Others with ties to patriot groups and militia movements online responded with a bit more force. “Locked and loaded ready to go,” wrote Chris Border, a member of the Cliven Bundy’s Army! Facebook group, which boasts more than 2,000 members. “Tired of this crap and time to do something.”
One has to wonder what exactly are the reasons for this new land grab by President Obama in the last days of his presidency. It’s extremely hard to imagine that it is not at least partially connected to the Bundy’s and the standoffs in both Nevada and Oregon.
More importantly, this area may actually include land that has documented precious metals throughout it as detailed in the video report below.
More information as to the exact implications of this massive land grab are sure to be released in the coming days and will be covered here extensively.
Note: An interesting discussion about the implications surrounding Obama’s new land grab was also recently released by patriots in the area, which can be found in the video below.

Any way I can designate DC as a N Bomb test site? Get rid of the people and not hurt the buildings?
I like that! The scum feds can’t own or control but a certain amount of land per the Constitution. Ignore the fuckers. Maybe they’ll go away. If not? We all know the answer.
Menzo, I think everyone should wait and see what Trump’s position on this issue will be. Hopefully it will be the opposite of the ape-in-chief. Let’s give the new President a chance to handle this.
From: Arizona Freedom Alliance and the Reno Gazette-Journal
Donald Trump takes on federal land control
[Editor: Once again, Trump departs from the standard political rhetoric and takes on an issue of the people. Once again, Trump is out front on one of the major issues of our time in Arizona, the western United States and we the people.]
“In a new op-ed for the Reno Gazette-Journal, the Republican presidential front-runner rails against the “draconian rule” of the Bureau of Land Management and the Obama administration’s “land grab” in the western United States.”
Arizona Freedom Alliance
Trump can start by shutting do the BLM Bureau of Land Management. The Nazi Castapo land grabber seizing asset forfeiture without being found guilty or a trial.
If this is an executive order, Trump can shut it down day 1. This is more Obama EO item for Trump to declare Null and Void on Jan 20th. The Damage continues to mount.
Obama needs to be handcuffed and stuck in a padded room until Jan 20th. Then tar and feather him and let the vultures pick away.
I WILL REPEAT myself, time to clean out ALL the DC scumbags and make examples of them, after conviction hang-em ALL from the lite posts on the DC beltway with signs that we WILL NOT tolerate this crap anymore!!
if you just hung ONE, and had a few hundred thousand citizens to guard the body for a few weeks…..THE REST FALL IN LINE…..i suppose that’s what it will take to straighten this shit out.
We need to drag these Corrupt US Politicians through the streets of America like Clinton did to Momar Gadhafi, let the pubic beat them all like Mexican Pinata’s until all their bribe money falls out of their pockets, to the ground like candy. Let start with Paul Ryan, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, etc.
try reading the comment section in the Orgonian paper on this article and look at ALL the govie trolls that jumped onto bundy and the article NEVER said anything about Bundy, it just mentioned this was close to that site!! point is the trolls ARE monitoring anything to do with Bundy stuff as they are trying to sawy public opinion for the trial!! cannot wait for those scumbags trolls to be out of a job and then have ALL there names and locations posted!!!
The BLM has declared LeRoy Finicum’s grazing lease to be ‘non-transerable’, even though it clearly says so in the permit itself, and is requiring an Environmental Impact Statement, and EIS, to re-issue it. An EIS is the highest level of environmental review, generally costing $500,000 or more, and is borne by the applicant.
So Finicum’s widow is being shut out of her ranch.
Never mind that a ranch can be sold, or inherited, and a BLM permit runs with the land, the BLM is illegally acting against the widow.
YUP!! i would like to see all the scumbags tied to this be convicted and serve prison time!! the ones involved with Finnicum’s killing, be executed as per there own law!!
Anyone here from Oregon should get in touch with their Representative, see about scotching the BLM’s game.
Smokey, The US Military, aka: US Air Fraud Bases, commit Fraud in their EIS’s. I busted them back dating noise studies, after they added more and more aircraft, and cooking the books to make everything look and sound compatible. Those lying scumbags deserve Life in Prison, as they violate their Oath to the Constitution, and harm the very people they claim they protect. Fuck the US Military pack of scumbags. They are accountable to no one, as the laws gives them exemptions. And all you scumbag merchants out there giving 10% off to Vets, Fuck you too, you enabling aholes. I will boycott you, spread the word. Anybody giving Murderous Vets discounts, you need to boycott. It is rewarding Failure, Fraud and Genocide.
US Military bases are pig troughs riddled with fraud and in violation of US law. They deserve to be shut down ASAP.
As a 25-year Army vet I’m highly offended by your comments. Perhaps you would be more comfortable in Venezuela. I’ll help you pack…
Apache54, remember that article about the birds dying out? Imagine that being trolls instead…..
Bundy has a very important Constitutional argument. He would gladly pay lease to the Constitutional Authority, the State of Nevada. The problem is enforcement of the Constitution not those who abide by it. Here is a chance to protect our Constitution in real time. It is these little bites that kill Constitutionally granted freedom. If we lose both we deserve what we get. Homeless but awake.
This situation is one reason the 2nd Amendment was put into place.
The only truth these days seems to be the metaphors our Founders tried to warn us with. ” A Constitutional Republic, if you can keep it”. We should try that one at least once before throwing in the towel.
Be careful what you wish for when talking about “we the peoples land” I live in an area that is surround by Federal land, either BLM or National Forest or Designated Wilderness all of which I or any other American is free to roam or hunt on, except that which is blocked by wealthy absentee ranchers. Now place that land in the hands of the States with the most Federal Land and see what happens to it. Anybody know of a State that ain’t strapped for cash??? No All Of Them Are!!! Don’t suppose they would start selling “we the peoples land” and it won’t be in little 100 acre tracts where Joe Blow can buy it, it will be in 10,000 acre tracts and soon the most remote areas will be land locked and “we the people” won’t have access to any of it. And once it becomes Wyomings land and Idahos land and Montanas land, does it still belong to “we the people”? I don’t have much use for Big Government but some things are better left alone. Trekker Out.
Yup, if you think the feds are in cahoots with corporate exploiters, wait until your state gets the opportunity.
I would rather have 50 individual states controlling land in their area, than ONE GIANT COMPLEX OF MURDEROUS GENOCIDAL TREASONOUS CRIMINAL PSYCHOPATHS controlling the land and resources from the inner bowels of the pits of hell in Washington DC, where we know the resources are sold off and used as collateral for the debt being used to enslave the children American cowards could give two shits about. That is exactly what the NULL AND VOID long dead and gone US Constitution was intended for NO CENTRALIZED CONTROL OR AUTHORITY, because they knew what any intelligent freedom and liberty loving REAL HUMAN understands “ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY”. Your “strapped for cash” argument pertaining to the states is pure insanity, when the criminal treasonous US Government is over 20 TRILLION IN DEBT RIGHT NOW, and it grows, and grows, and keeps growing. It is only a matter of time before that land you now enjoy to “roam free on” will be closed off to you and every other boot licking coward slave peasant as the psychopaths you worship in Washington DC move you out and pack you in their Megacities for their Agenda 2030/2050 TREASONOUS Horror, and it is coming coward whether you want to believe it or not.
Agree with you 100% Ron…
He (they, tptb) keeps pushing and pushing. WHEN IS IT TIME TO ACT! FFS PEOPLE WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH?
Menzo, I agree. But I think cooler heads need to prevail and let’s see what Trump does with this issue.
Wii be interesting to see if new potus willing to tackle all these exec orders with pen and dump em all,then see if willing to truly follow the constitution or sell us out to the reptillians,time will tell.
Either way,so fuck off obola and just get the fuck out of the US.
Does anyone know anything about our land being used as collateral against loans by China? Is Obama’s land grab intended to compound difficulties in renegotiations of trade deals with China by incoming President Trump?
If they did put the land up as collateral, it wasn’t their land they put up. Its ours and we mustn’t let it stand. Force is all they will ever understand. Unfortunately.
I wonder what the Chinese want with all that sand anyway. What could they possibly do with piles of sand? Extend their Port of Los Angeles maybe. So many questions, too many lies.
Gold Butte! There’s GOLD in them thar hills! Not to mention tons of other volcanic minerals.
You can’t put public land up for collateral. Not happening.
China buys Treasury Bonds just like anyone else, the only ‘collateral’ is the good faith of the United States, nothing else.
Interesting article from WND: China poised to play debt card – for U.S. land
Don’t say it can’t happen because it’s “unConstitutional”. Violating our Constitution is one thing the sneaky snarky passive aggressive Kenyan is good at.
China poised to play debt card – for U.S. land
The white aunt of President Dindu Nuffin who lives in Windfall Indiana has a copy of the Original Kenyan birth certificate because she was there when he was born. Maybe under the protection of President Trump she can come forth and Sheriff Joe can arrest Dindu.
Isn’t going to happen.
Lets make Chicago a monument,surround it with barbed wire and charge 50 bucks to get into and watch it wither and die. add DC and all sancuary cities too.
Wrong!! Let the dumbo’s in for free. Charge $10,000 to get OUT.
Just lets wait to see what Donald Duck does when he gets in office.
The Federal Government owns 88% of the state of Nevada now.
Boise, Idaho 500 square mile plot for Chinese settlement. Milan, Michigan 200 acres of farmland in Ann Arbor, near the University of Michigan. Did these settlements happen?? If, not, don’t get too relaxed; it shows intent. China wants North American land. We better keep vigilant or our great grandchildren will curse us, and we will have no peace in our graves.
The Chinese are buying up the depressed land in Detroit.
Will Detroit Be The First Major Chinese City In The United States?
by Tyler Durden
May 6, 2014 2:26 PM
Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog,
Is Detroit destined to become a Chinese city? Chinese homebuyers and Chinese businesses are starting to flood into the Motor City, and the governor of Michigan is greatly encouraging this. In fact, he has formally asked the Obama administration for 50,000 special federal immigration visas to encourage even more immigration from China and elsewhere. ***WTF?????
So will Detroit be the first major city in the United States to be dominated by China? It could happen. Once upon a time, Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city in the history of the world and it had the highest per capita income in the entire country. But now it is a rotting, decaying, bankrupt hellhole that is in desperate need of a savior, and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder appears to be fully convinced that China can be that savior.
***Yeah what ever, oh just hand out US Visa’s like candy to a spoiled child. America is being invaded on every front by illegals. Lock and load Peeps, the war is about to let loose. Shoot every slant eyes brown skin sand nigger out there. Open season, no daily bag limit.
Well, only the HEADLINE said it was an Executive Order. Are we sure? Or was this in some bill that CONgress passed that he signed into law?
If an Executive Order – IT IS NOT LAW and can be ignored.
It’s a Proclamation under Executive Order. Made under the Antiquities Act of 1906. He gets to do this kind of stuff.
It can’t be ignored, it’s now official.
The areas designated can be amended, however, by the same process.
Something tells me that there is something on that land that the Chinese want and its being given to them down the road in lieu of a debt payment
Well, they’re not going to get it, it’s now protected land.
There was something on that land, though, it’s minerals, water power, solar power, shale, coal, public access, grazing, what have you. It’s been given to the environmental voting bloc in exchange for their votes.
“in lieu of debt payment” (5:44).
When dRATS were borrowing money I asked “what is the collateral?” No answers were forthcoming to such a person as I, but we know IT was our land. Never forget, Hitlery and Barry did this to us.
Not related, but then again in some ways…..
*Still 300ish ? protesters may be near Cannonball
*3 snowstorms/blizzards later Archambault begging for Federal Emergency Assistance – for the reservation – screw the county
*Livestock dying in weather – residents/Standing Rock struggling
*Local Native Americans finally showing their faces in town – mostly during off hours – trying to avoid problems in community caused by the professional protestors
*11.2M PLUS raised on main Go fund me pages has apparently evaporated.
*Wesley Clark Jr. left vets who showed up high and dry
*Morton County over $20Million in hole so far with no assistance. (There go my property taxes).
*For the first time ever ND residents must enter state capitol through only one of 2 doors (there are many more) and go through metal detectors. (Thanks #NoDAPL vandals)
*Standing Rock now developing a utility commission (“We are not anti-energy”) to aid with all on reservation energy right of ways in future.
*Standing Rock water intake moving to Mobridge SD – 70 miles south of DAPL and less than two miles south of a railroad bridge carrying tanker cars of oil many times per day.
*Local rumor that casino at Standing Rock needs hotel gutted and rebuilt due to damage from protestors (don’t know if this is true or not)
What a mess we have now. Thanks to so many in this country who came to “help” because of emotions, but do not have the brain that a frozen cow turd in my pasture has. Obama and these same people have screwed over the Bundys and others ranchers in the west. I might add that Obama has less grey matter than a cow turd in my pasture. I support and pray for all ranchers and landowners in Nevada and the west. Look at RANGE magazine for the local TRUE information on what is happening out there. WAPO and other news media biased and truly – TRULY uninformed Obama and Govt sympathizers.
Wasn’t the Bundy land where part of the resources HIllary “sold” to the Russian for a donation to the Clinton Foundation? I think we should blast Trump’s website, email and Twitter Accounts with Free the Bundys and give back the Hammond property. Also give free grazing to everyone involved. While you are at it just tell them the BLM is unconstitutional. That saves all the problems.
When he gets into office, Trump needs to sign an executive order that declares any executive orders signed between Jan.1, 2008 and Jan.20, 2017 to be null and void.
Well, only one thing left to do. grab that little son of a bitch and lynch him before he gets away. Then, warn the rest of the liberal criminals they are next if they think they are our rulers and not representing the people of the United States of America.
Although the Chinese may want this land I have a feeling Trump will not let them have it. He mentioned the BLM and Bundy’s at one of his rallies, specifically.
Democrats, Elites and RINO’s fail to understand that the KING does not own land. The land is owned by the American people and that we own them. Public SERVANT!
It will be ineteresting to see Trump make that point once he is in control. I am sure that he is sick of redtape etc.. being a builder in NY.
CA GOV Brown is giving Chinese Military access to CA ports. Also several reports from over the years have indicated Chinese troops in Mexico just south of the freetrade zone. Trump as POTUS can make a case to remove Brown and take control over that state by Brown causing a threat to national security. Clinton gave control to the Panama Canal to the Chinese by following an agreement set in place by Carter. What a bunch of Democrat traitors glad there party is DOA for a long while! Thanks Putin!
TAKE IT ALL psychopaths controlling the US Government from the inner bowels of the pits of hell in Washington DC. Take ALL the ranchers land, take ALL the farmers land, take ALL the miners land, take ALL the loggers land, take ALL the water rights, take ALL the mineral rights. Just take it ALL from the American boot licking cowards, take it ALL from the American cowards who watch as their brothers and sisters are terrorized, beaten, jailed TWO TIMES unjustly, and have their lands and lives stolen from them by the Domestic Terrorist Alphabet Gangs of the criminal treasonous US Government. Take it ALL from the American cowards cowering in fear of their criminal treasonous government, and going along so they will not choose them next, but of course the psychopaths will, and they are coming for the lands and resources, including “Human Resources” of ALL American boot licking cowards…. It is only a matter of time.
Take it ALL from the American cowards who do not deserve the land, or deserve to have any connection to the land, if they are going to sit back and watch their brothers and sisters being destroyed, jailed, murdered, and terrorized over their land and resources they own. Take it ALL from the American cowards, who ignorantly call themselves Christians and believers in justice and truth, as they watch the horror being perpetrated on their brothers and sisters families from Domestic Terrorists of the US Government….”woe unto those who call good evil and evil good”.
I assure you that YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN, or follower of anything good, justice, and truth if you are not actively speaking out and peacefully opposing the Domestic Terror Police State horror being perpetrated on your fellow brothers and sisters families by the criminal treasonous psychopaths controlling the US Government, and all their Alphabet Gangs of treasonous Domestic Terrorists!!!!
Then the PM’s in those areas would be grabbed by Barrick or Newmont, two two most connected gold miners. They have the biggest spooks on their boards.
