- 1. Why does no one seem to care?
(The following article was sent to me anonymously. It’s a timely, accurate, and thoughtful essay that needs to be read by every American.)
Are you aware that we the people are under assault in this country? Maybe not you personally, yet, but when one group of patriots in America is deprived of their freedoms guaranteed to them by the Constitution, it's a hostile invasion of all who stand for liberty. And that is what happened to the ranchers in Harney County, Oregon, in the past weeks, and in Nevada before that. There is a systematic taking of our precious liberties.
Why does no one seem to care?
Where is the media on this? Where are the folks who are focused on restoring our trust lands across the western United States? Are we to sit and watch those among us get incarcerated for ranching? For peacefully protesting the egregious treatment they have received from their own government, for years?
We know that these lands do not belong to the federal government. The federal government manages those lands for we the people under contracts that were supposed to be assigned back to the states years ago. The federal government contracts grazing leases to local ranchers. These grazing leases abut the ranches owned by private citizens of the United States. These ranchers, by and large, are good stewards of the lands they lease to use for grazing. But they are methodically being deprived of the use of the lands owned by we the people, even with legal leases to do so. In Oregon, the Burea of Land Management (BLM) is burning grazing land that is under lease to ranchers for grazing their cattle, and the BLM is burning the cattle, homes, and corrals in the process.Click here to read more
- 2. BLM Agents in Oregon Burned up Cattle, Homes, Buildings, Fences, Grassland
If you haven't been following the Hammond case in Harney County, Oregon, click HERE for the timeline, dating back to the 1970’s, of the cruel and corrupt methods used by both the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), to drive this family, and many other ranchers, off their land.

Ask yourself: Why are we hearing about so many more catastrophic fires ever since--thanks to the environmentalists and federal agencies--private cattle ranchers and lumber operations have been driven off the land? Add to this that the federal government controls 3 out of every 10 acres of land in America and is power hungry for more. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said the government’s “massive” control over land has preserved less than 1 percent of endangered species and instead harmed individuals whose livelihoods depend on land ownership.
Oregon ranchers Steven Hammond and his father Dwight were sentenced in June 2012 as “Arsenal Terrorists.” The maximum punishment for this federal crime is death. So, what did these ranchers do to warrant their time in prison, and the likelihood that they will be imprisoned again?Click here to read more
- 3. Obama's Radical War on the Navajo Nation and Rural Arizonans
In this video, you will see that West Virginia is suffering 6.9% unemployment, due to the Obama Administration's determination to shut down the coal industry with excessive regulations, thanks to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). There is no mention of the more than 50% unemployment suffered by 300,000 Navajos, or the destruction of jobs in Northern Arizona!

- 5. The Impact of Coal Restrictions on the Navajo Nation: Sen. Carlyle Begay
In announcing his recent decision to change from the Democrat to the Republican Party, Arizona Senator Carlyle Begay spoke of unemployment rates as high as 80% in his district. He also stated that future progress in Arizona has to include partnerships with rural and tribal communities. It is the Republican party that has embraced these crucial partnerships, which are the cornerstone of the future of our state.
As a rural Arizonan living in Gila County, I understand some of the concerns that we share. Rural and tribal Arizonans live in and of the land. We are sustained by it. We respect and love it. Rural Arizona offers rich natural resources that have fed, clothed, sheltered, and provided energy and water to millions of people.
The Democrat Party has waged war on our livestock, timber, and coal industries, the very industries that sustain Arizona's rural and tribal communities.
Back in July 2015, then Democrat Senator Carlyle Begay spoke at the Heartland Institute's International Conferences on Climate Change.
