1,500 families losing land in Miami land grab

There are approximately 1500 families in Miami, Florida that have already (or nearly ready) to lose their homes. It’s a complicated story, but I will try to explain it without taking up too much time. It’s been a 5 yr drama for these people and their distress is palpable. It seems Broward County established a quasi DEP organization in their county called DERM (Department of Environmental Resource Management). DERM has classified nearly 8.5 square miles as protected wetlands and are evicting people from their homes and land; nearly 1500 families currently. They are required to abandon the land and scrape the dirt down to the limestone. It is truly bizarre and making it even crazier FEMA doesn’t even list the land in a flood zone.

One family in particular is trying to fight back. In fact they are currently in contempt for failure to abandon and expect to be arrested any day. This land is their family farm and they have occupied the land for nearly 40 years. They truly need help financial for sure, but just in personal support would be amazing. If Campaign For Liberty, Florida 10th Amendment and any other liberty organization in our area could help by spreading their message, standing in support at protests, letters to DERM, City Mayor, County Manager and Board of County Commissioners.

I’ve just been made aware of the situation in the last few days and as I try to understand the case, it remains even more confusing. But from what I can tell, if DERM can just re-classify your land and evict you from it we are all at risk, especially since they’ve been successful in removing nearly 1500 families! Further, they are not seizing the land under Eminent Domain; they are just declaring it protected land and demanding the families to abandon the land. The families are still responsible for any mortgage, liens and all property taxes.

I live in North Florida and am not in a physical or financial situation to lend any assistance. But I am hoping by spreading the message it will get to someone who can help.

Ooops. That won't make a difference. Our first-past-the-post election system guarantees you won't get proper representation.


Probable Scenario as to Why

In about 15 to 20 years you will see a new golf course and planned community on the edge or within this newly confiscated land. The owners of that new community will then tell you who is behind this.

Monetary profit is probably not involved here. This is pure power manipulation because a bunch of really rich people want to have a secluded nice area to live in near the nice warm climate around Miami.

They will build up a small area for their development by taking fill from the swamps thereby creating more swampland that will act as a buffer between them and the rest of the community. So their development will be seen as an improvement as it helps create more swampland and create drainage.

But they will really end up with their own fiefdom in some of the best real estate in the world surrounded by a good swamp buffer.

In 10 years or so the real power behind this will become apparent.

There will probably be some sort of public works infrastructure project that builds out all the expensive stuff for them so that we pay for their power and streets they need. Once again it will be seen as good for the environment and community when the bonds are floated.

Bump, in Hopes that those in the area who can help

will see this and do so.

I'll bump ya!

The message somehow got to Bernie Decastro (candidate for US Senate Fl) he called me and said he is heading downthere.

right out of Agenda 21

Incremental Steps to Dictatorship by Teresa Morris

History shows us that as free nations become complacent, they become vulnerable to manipulation. Most dictatorships rise gradually -- a step at a time. Smooth talking politicians make each incremental step seem reasonable, because the masses are blind to the tides of change. The wisdom of Wendell Phillips fades away: "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."

If American troops are unwilling or unable to carry out such arrests, then the President can use Canadian troops, thanks to a military agreement called the Civil Assistance Plan. The President can also use troops from the United Nations.

Right now, there is a bill in Congress (H.R. 645) that requires the Department of Homeland Security to establish at least six more detention camps on military installations. It also appears to further expand the president's emergency power. Jerome Corsi observes:

"We are talking about a slippery slope: camps being prepared to be used in emergencies can easily be used to imprison dissenters."

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

This is insane

very sad

sadly things all across the country will only get worse...

will they spend less time watching tv in their retirement homes

now, and less time strolling aimlessly on the beaches, and pay attention to what's happening to this country?

This is why the EPA

and ALL other "enviornmental protection" agencies MUST be completely eliminated immediately. Same thing goes for DERM, and every other agency like it.

The EPA has NEVER "protected" anything of any sort in the environment. It exists SOLELY as an oppressive agency that is empowered to destroy civilization under a completely false pretext of "protecting the enviroment".

It's simply another NWO front organization that works along with the NWO "Sierra Club" and other fake "naturalist clubs" to steal land for the NWO, and displace Americans from their homes.

I say eliminate ALL of these agencies, and put everyonoe that worked for them on a list similar to the "Sex Offender List" which requires that the public be alerted when one of these enviro-criminals moves into their neighborhood.
Perhaps even they should be branded on their foreheads with the letter "E", so that the rest of the world is forewarned about what they are.

Big T...... I love the sex offender list idea

Trying to guess the significance of the letter "E"
Enviromist... Elite....Extreemely whacked & dangerous lol

The media needs to be held responsible

Bob just called to talk to the same producer who has threatened arrest of Alexander Snitker if he tries to enter the debate. Bob was told he woulsd also be arrested if he tries to confront Rubio over this property rights issue.

The Producer is Craig Patrick and his numbers are (407) 841-9000 or (407) 822-8353. Call him and let him know how you feel. (about both.... a candidate on the ballot not being allowed to speak and the people not being allowed to speak to the property rights issue. This will effect us all as this is just the tip of this.


Thanks for posting this. I can't help but think the Gulf Oil spill will play into this at some point. People already don't want to come to Florida. With the banks stopping foreclosures, property values will further be greatly reduced, while taxes significantly increase. They will drive us all out of here.

Land Grab in Bama as well


The Gulf States are going to be in real trouble. The MS river is a major supply rt. I've always believed that with the UN Nafta supper highway, that the port in New Orleans would need to close. Thad Allen just got promoted to a top spot at Rand Corporation. This is wild stuff!

Bama too....

Isn't it disgusting how these vermin appoint people and help set in motion these deals which a few years down the road start taking effect and by then, they are far enough removed that they can go give lip service to fighting & pretend they are on the peoples side.......*gag*

Welcome to Corp US

It's all 14th amendment stuff. The Corp owns everything and when they come down on you, you can't do anything to stop it. BoA foreclosed on some guy in FL that paid cash for his house. The bank had the wrong address and no one would listen. They took everything and he's suing for damages...WTF!
