Environmentalists pushed Bundy ranch standoff

(excerpts: please read in full)

"A screenshot of the deleted page from the BLM’s website shows that environmental groups were some of the main forces aligned against Bundy’s trespass cattle. Environmentalists were pushing for the disputed federal lands to be used as “offsite mitigation” for the impact of solar development. Solar development in the area is heavily supported by Nevada environmental groups.

“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the BLM page says.

The Center for Biological Diversity has demanded action to resolve trespass in designated critical desert tortoise habitat in several letters,” BLM page notes. “Western Watersheds has requested a verbal status update and later filed a Freedom of Information Act request.”

The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Western Watersheds Project (WWP) have been actively pushing the government to impose heftier grazing fees on cattle ranchers for years, along with pressuring officials to close of huge areas of public lands to grazing and oil and gas development.

In April 2012, the BLM were preparing to remove Bundy’s cattle from federal lands, but mysteriously abandoned the operation — note that this was an election year. CBD filed an intent to sue against the BLM under the Endangered Species Act for failing to remove the Bundy’s trespass cattle that year.

CBD was also enraged when the BLM halted removing Bundy’s cattle this month during a fierce standoff between armed federal agents, Bundy supporters and militia members. The BLM returned the 400 cattle they had rounded up to Bundy, angering environmentalists.

“The BLM has both a statutory and sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest, to treat all users equally and fairly,” said Mrowka. “Instead it as allowing a freeloading rancher backed by armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.”

Jury Awards $600,000 to Arizona Rancher - Environmental Group Found Libel for False Statements and Accusations
( in part) Jan. 2005

Tucson) A Tucson jury today found the Center for Biological Diversity, a well-known environmental group, guilty of making “false, unfair, libelous and defamatory statements” against Jim Chilton, a fifth generation Southern Arizona Rancher.

In a judgment announced during the noon hour, the jury awarded Chilton $100,000 in actual damages, and $500,000 in punitive damages for defaming him and his family business in a two-page press release and 21
photographs posted on the Center’s website in July 2002 that were false and misleading regarding Chilton’s 21,500-acre Montana grazing Allotment northwest of Nogales.

“This case is more about the truth than about money. After all expenses have been covered, I am going to donate all the remaining money to the Arizona Cattle Growers Association to be used for the truth and responsibility for cattle grazing issues”, said Chilton.

The suit was filed, according to Chilton, because he wanted to challenge the way the Center for Biological Diversity does business.

“They don't use science, they use scare tactics,” said Chilton. “They also use endangered species as surrogates to obtain their own goals and to raise money,” he added.

Racists Found Supporting Reid & BLM!

Here are your racists! The NWO Agenda 21 minions.. they are against the HUMAN RACE!

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

NGO is code for "Bankster-funded operation"

Follow the money... Center for Biological Diversity was funded by "Fund For Wild Nature"... which originally known as "Earth First!" which was founded by a bunch of "radical environmentalists" including Ron Kezar of the BLM. This organization engaged in terrorism across the world to further the economic interests of their benefactors while maintaining the illusion that their efforts were connected to environmentalism.

At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?

*Our Land - Collateral for the National Debt

by Derry Brownfield
The “WORLD CONSERVATION BANK” with collateral being derived from receipt of wilderness properties throughout the world. This bank would have central bank powers similar to the Federal Reserve. It would create currency and loans and engage in international discounting, counter-trade, barter and swap actions. Rothschild personally conducted the monetary matters and the creation of this WORLD CONSERVATION BANK. This bank would refinance by swapping debt for assets. A country with a huge national debt would receive money to pay off the debt by swapping the debt for wilderness lands. The plan was to swap one trillion dollars of Third World Debt into this new bank. In the long term, when the countries won’t be able to pay off the loans, governments from around the world will give title to their wilderness lands to the bankers."

Ruh Roh, lol!

Seriously though, the way the elite work is they don't just have ONE agenda for an action, it is always multifaceted, layered. Many people make the mistake of only looking at and naming one surface reason for a particular action when usually there are many reasons that overlap.
The tangled web of tyranny and world dominance marches on and remember, if you dare to point it out you hear: "if you are not with us..then you are with THE TERRORISTS!" THE TERRORISTS! THE TERRORISTS!! AGHHH! ;)
