Obama and the Greenies seeking massive land grab in Utah


Here we go again. Another massive land grab. Not the first or the last land grab.The latest will claim land from Utah the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined. Over Two million acres. No doubt he is not through yet. A few of the previous grabs of millions of acres. Obama to claim half million acres today under ‘Monument act’ UPDATE .Then we have President Obama designates five new national monuments add Obama Stretches ‘Antiquities Act’ to Include Three New National . I will give you this one  With 3 California Sites, Obama Nearly Doubles Public Land

The government already owns two-thirds of the 13 Western states. This doesn’t include State and Local government ownership. Now Utah is going to lose another two million acres?

The Antiquities Act, passed in 1906, gives the president of the United States unilateral power to designate so-called national monuments to protect historic landmarks, structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest on federal land. The act also specifically notes that these monuments should be confined to the smallest possible area. But the exact language of the legislation doesn’t matter to radical environmentalists and their ideological allies in the Obama administration. All they care about is power, and because national monument designations do not require input from Congress or locals, they have become a favorite tactic for federal overreach.

The proposed monument in San Juan County is known as Bears Ears. It covers nearly 2 million square miles, about the size of the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined. Does that sound like the “smallest area” needed? But this national monument designation is not about protecting antiquities, it just one part of the efforts of radical environmentalists to put as much land off limits to productive use as possible, a pattern that is repeated all across the western states.

San Juan County, Utah is the poorest county in Utah and one of the poorest counties in the United States. The large majority of the land in the county is owned by the federal government, meaning that locals already face severe limits on economic activity, hardly what a struggling county needs. Now rich, out-of-state environmentalists in San Francisco want to inflict even more pain on the citizens of San Juan County. These environmentalists are urging the Obama administration to undertake a national monument land grab that would put much of the county off limits to productive use. Oppressing poor, rural Americans so that rich, city environmentalists can pat themselves on the back? Sounds like a project the federal government will be happy to help along.

    So sad. Something similar happened in ancient Rome when they got too big for their britches by expanding beyond their means. The government became so top heavy that it collapsed (ran out of money). I predict the same problem for our government if this actually comes to pass.

    You know I’d almost forgotten. Under a certain form of government, economic system, whatever its called, there’s not supposed to be any private property rights. Even includes your property called privates.

      Yup! Nothing like having your property ripped right out from under a person to bring the issue front and center. I can’t imagine the anguish and hope never too….

    ….and that’s why the western states are hurting for water—all these protected animals/insects/reptiles/fish and so on. I read somewhere the Hoover Dam is really low…on a funny note, they can have Utah, the Mormons have voted in gay marriage and are voting for pant suit. (trying to be funny)

    On a serious note, this is pretty sad…far over reaching of the government and the EPA.
