Florida’s tea party groups are actively involved in educating fellow Floridians (and Americans) about the dangers to our freedom contained in the UN’s Agenda 21.I’ve written about it here, here, and here

Today, our local tea party coordinator sent information about a massive federal land grab now in progress in the western part of our country that is important for you to know. Keep in mind that this land is also where our biggest mineral deposits come from for defense materials…

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a for-profit federal corporation, issued a memo laying out its plans to seize 10 million additional acres across the Western states including, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, California, and Utah. The federal government already claims ownership or control of 84% of Utah and at least 68% of Nevada. The document clearly lays out the propaganda to be used in this land theft, referring to the theft as saving national treasures, pristine areas, treasured landscapes, etc.. Sounds really peachy until you get to the part about mining and natural resources, to be stolen at the same time…

The question immediately arises in my mind; “How can the BLM claim ownership of land? Doesn’t the Constitution expressly deny the central government ownership of any land other than insular possessions, territories and the ten square mile parcel of land ceded to it for its existence?” Yes it does, but the Bureau of Land Management is a privately owned corporation and is not bound by constitutional restraints.

The BLM is a duly chartered and registered, for profit corporation which conducts business independent of the central government, and as a private corporation can purchase land and conduct contract business with other corporations, which it does routinely. But, we are supposed to believe that the BLM, operating under the ubiquitous Department of the Interior, is some kind of government agency.

In the memo, BLM corporation talks extensively about its “ownership” of lands and how this back room deal, meant to facilitate the theft of lands inside the geographical boundaries of the states could be implemented. Of great interest to the BLM are the Western states, as a result of the natural resources contained in the land in these areas, which are extensive…

This is approximately 22 billion that will be used to wipe out our wild horse herds, to steal land from the states under the guise of “treasured landscapes”. Billions that will be used to privatize public lands and to limit access to our forests. Neither of these agencies should exist. And, we should not be forced to continue to fund what are in effect private corporations dedicated to the theft of state and publicly owned assets.
