DEMINT: White House Land Grab

By Sen. Jim DeMint

You'd think the Obama administration is busy enough controlling the banks, insurance companies and automakers, but thanks to whistleblowers at the Department of the Interior, we now learn they're planning to increase their control over energy-rich land in the West.

A secret administration memo has surfaced revealing plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres from Montana to New Mexico, halting job- creating activities like ranching, forestry, mining and energy development. Worse, this land grab would dry up tax revenue that's essential for funding schools, firehouses and community centers.

President Obama could enact the plans in this memo with just the stroke of a pen, without any input from the communities affected by it.

At a time when our national unemployment rate is 9.7 percent, it is unbelievable anyone would be looking to stop job-creating energy enterprises, yet that's exactly what's happening.

REX 84, Agenda 21...

all rolled up together. Set aside lands "not for humans" and herd them into the cities and suburbs. It's not like God laid out the land for teh stewardship of ALL men. The free market void of corporate greed would defend lands appropriately, but I guess all this mentioned landscape is to be held for the pleasure of the globalists, not the common man. Beating the federal government back into it's tiny box will be a battle, but that is the fight we must make if we wish to save our Liberty and preserve our individual sovereignty.

I didn't read the article, but what you posted is quite interesting. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Obama wants to start stealing land from people.
