The History of the Federal Government Land Grab (part 2)

In part 1, we discussed where in the U.S. Constitution it talks about land and the transferring of all lands of new states to their respective state authority to be under “equal footing” comparable to the original 13 states. We exposed through the years, how this has not been upheld and in fact has gradually given small portion’s to the states instead of the whole amount minus the land for “needful buildings” legally sequestered by the federal government.

In the case of Utah, the land given equals 33.62 percent. The remaining 66.38 percent of the land has been retained and lock-up by our overlords. This is economically devastating to Utahns from present to future generation, as we are unable to compete efficiently with other states and countries as we are placed as second-class citizens and are plundered by the Establishment.

This is unjust and every person in the United States and other states, should see how Un-American this is to play favorites and cripple their neighbors who live in different geographical areas, but still considered to be Americans. We need to stand together. We should be protesting vigorously about not showing equal treatment and protecting Americans as in due respect and duties to one another, regardless of our physical location or invisible lines separating us as with should seek meritocracy, fairness, and justice.

You can’t pick and choose which types of freedom you want to defend. You must defend all of it or be against all of it.”

— Scott Howard Phillips

It’s not a Left vs Right or Republican vs Democrat issue, it is an American problem. If we don’t defend freedom and put the issues in the proper jurisdiction of state and federal government as the U.S. and Utah Constitution advocates, then we will continue to be divided into the left/right paradigm and have our present and future generations liberties stolen until we are once again in bondage.

In this current article, we will continue to trace the corruption and tyranny of the federal government running rough shod over the states and the peoples’ rights through the years up until the present day.

We all can sense there is something wrong and our country continues to travel down the wrong road. But the federal government along with state and local governments are beholden to this unhealthy path because of federal grants, contracts and agreements. Those that are being vocal and saying something is wrong, are isolated, gaslighted and destroyed by the media, corrupt or ignorant officials, and even destroyed with false and misinformation on trumped up charges in the form of lawfare.

We can see from several authors, the documentation of Federal hijacking and tyranny.

Based upon the forgoing, consistent with the U.S. Constitution and cases that adhere to the provision of the Constitution, I can come to no other conclusion than this: The public lands within the United States, including what we call our National Forests, the Bureau of Land Management land, the land set aside by and for the Fish and Wildlife Agency, even wild and scenic rivers, all belongs to the respective states.

However, this is not to say that this same land should not be set aside as a preserve of one sort or another. That is not the question. The question is this” Consistent with the provisions of the Constitution, and in conformance therewith, who should be making the decisions about the public lands: the federal or state government? Who really owns it?

This question has been answered has been answered in a wrenching way by the federal government. The different branches of the federal government have simply said, “The land is mine, and I’m strong enough and powerful enough to take and keep it.” And they have. The claim of ownership and the act of control have accompanied this self-direct mandate. The legally minded reader will call this adverse possession. And it is. However that may be, our Constitution precludes any action on the part of the federal or state government that is outside of the confines and provisions of the Constitution itself.” (1)

The Constitution “precludes any action on the part of the federal or state government that is outside of the confines and provisions of the Constitution itself.” People need to read and arm themselves with the rule book to keep their elected officials in check and take back our country by demanding our public officials adhere to the rules and their Oath taken to the Utah and U.S. Constitution.

Precludes: to prevent the presence, existence, or occurrence of; make impossible.

A web of lies, confusion, and gaslighting has been promulgated on the American people. Americans need to become the land of the free and home of the brave again. We have got to stop taking part in the “lie”. This is the courage we need to reclaim.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.

— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Now let’s talk about the Range War. Let’s differentiate, between the Hollywood’s version of Cattlemen vs the Townspeople and really get to the root of the problems we have already been discussing. Hollywood continues to cover and takes the people down the wrong path of distractions, misinformation and deception.

Range war! Here and now! No, it’s not the Old West. It’s not the clash of cattlemen against sheep herders or ranchers against sodbusters in time warp. It’s today’s headlines about Congress threatening to increase stiff grazing fees ranchers already pay on federal land in the eleven western states. It’s Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management officials sharply curtailing grazing permits to broaden their regulatory powers. It’s Public Broadcasting System television specials about environmentalists accusing ranchers of overgrazing, and pressing to eliminate the livestock industry from federal lands with slogans such as “Livestock-Free By ’93!

It’s this and a thousand battles more that the news doesn’t cover, all boding devastation for America’s livestock industry-and for every other resource extraction industry in the nation, from minerals and timber to fisheries and petroleum. Thus the fallout from this storm over rangelands is confined neither to the range nor to the West. The political economic destiny of all Americans is unalterably hitched to this multi-faceted strife.”

Today’s range war is for control of our nations’ greatest storehouse of natural resource wealth – the federal lands. Shall that control be centralized in the hands of federal officials or decentralized to give markets, users and the general public a say in the land’s allocation? The outlines of this conflict have been etched in the public’s mind for more than a decade as a familiar “developers versus environmentalists” clash, or a “Sagebrush Rebellion” asserting “states’ rights over federal tyranny.” (2)

History is for us to analyze to see where mistakes were made, and where we can make adjustments and improvements. We don’t want to repeat those patterns done by dictators of the past.

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

— Ecclesiastes 1:9


By looking into the window of the past and specifically at King Charles I, we can see the concept, pattern and tyranny of his actions on property rights. King Charles I, locked up a large land mass to limit and harm the people of the kingdom. Today, we call it “Sustainable Development” by way of the vehicle we call Agenda 21, Agenda 30 and the Great Reset by the monopolies, governments and public private partnerships.

The people rebelled and defeated Charles I. The people demanded in a decree, declaration, and proclamation (public or official announcement, especially one dealing with a matter of great importance) of the violation and solution to not allow this to happen again or in the future. The proclamation was called the Grand Remonstrance of 1641.

‪”Charles I, lost his head. The people got the Grand Remonstrance of 1641. A grand awakening to the value of Liberty and a new step forward in the power of the people.”

The Grand Remonstrance of 1641

‪”The root of all this mischief we find to be a malignant and pernicious design of subverting the fundamental laws and principle of government upon which the religion and justice of this kingdom are firmly established“.

This was such a great awakening of the people. You see that “malignant and pernicious design”. The people said wait a minute, we are seeing a pattern here to this tyranny. We are seeing the same things over and over again.” ‬

How many have heard of sustainable development? Agenda 21? Would you be surprised to know the United Nations didn’t invent Agenda 21. Charles was engaged in sustainable development. Read the Grand Remonstrance.”

The enlargements of forests, contrary to Carta de Foresta, and the composition thereupon“. ‬

Charles was taking private land from the land owners and creating national forests in the name of preservation. Arresting, fining, mutilating and executing anyone found hunting and foraging in the protected forests. They didn’t have Burger King, Walmart, microwaves, or central heating. If you didn’t forage in the woods, you died. He was pressing environmental protection over the very lives of his people.“‬ (3)

G. Edward Griffiths said this about Agenda 21:

Agenda 21 is kind of a code name for a master plan originated at the United Nations to change the political and economic system of the world to one of total collectivism. And in order to do that, people must not be allowed to have independence. They must be dependent on the state for everything. Otherwise they won’t be easily controlled by the state. That means they can’t have private property, mostly. They cannot have land of their own.

Look for additional article(s) investigating Sustainable Development (Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development in Utah and Why It Matters?).
