EPA’s Most Significant Private Property Grab in US History is Imminent

Submit comments opposing the redefinition of water on this link.

The ninety day comment period on one of the biggest land grabs in the United States is coming to a close. The EPA is about to grab power over all lakes, ponds, streams, puddles, ditches and trenches in the United States, including those on private property.

The rule under the Clean Water Act is based on a study loosely based on fact.

“The … rule may be one of the most significant private property grabs in U.S. history,” said Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, the top Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

The EPA proposal would apply pollution regulations to the country’s so-called “intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands” — which are created during wet seasons, or simply after it rains, but are temporary.

They are claiming that small streams and waterways are part of the “waters of the United States” because all water is connected underground.

The Supreme Court has already ruled against this but that doesn’t stop this administration. They find ways around the Supreme Court of the United States when they fail to act in a way that they want them to act. Their excuse this time is that they are providing definition at the request of environmentalists.

The EPA is redefining the meaning of the word ‘water’ so they can seize control over all water and, as a consequence, all private property in the United States.

The Supreme Court of the United States has defined the meaning of ‘water’ as ‘navigable water.’ The EPA seeks to redefine the meaning of water as all ‘connected water,’ and they are seeking to define ‘connected water as all water, so they can assume power to regulate every body of water in the United States. Any water, even ditches, on private property will be controlled.

The EPA is using a bogus study which says all water is connected to one another deep under the earth. It would mean even puddles, ponds, and ditches along with streams and rivers fall under their jurisdiction. EPA’s Gina McCarthy is an extremist and she is running this show.

This has been in the works since Mr. Obama entered office and it took place under Bill Clinton.

The EPA has long wanted to control property because it has something as insignificant as a ditch on it.

The EPA has already attacked private land owners over ditches.  Dexter Lutter who thought he was cleaning up the water supply and creating a healthier environment for years to come faced hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. He cleaned up a manmade ditch. He settled for $11,000 but the precedent was set.

The EPA wants control over all land and water.

The seizures are taking place at a rapid pace throughout the nation. This rule will make it impossible for states to control their land and water.

Vitter attacked the science behind the rule, accusing the EPA of “picking and choosing” its science while trying to “take another step toward outright permitting authority over virtually any wet area in the country.”

He also warned the proposed change, if approved, would open the door for more environmental groups suing private property owners.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, echoed those concerns, saying the change “could result in serious collateral damage to our economy.”

“[I]t appears that the EPA is seeking to dramatically expand its jurisdictional reach under the Clean Water Act,” she said in a statement. The senator added that the change could have a huge impact on Alaska.

“If EPA is not careful, this rule could effectively give the federal government control of nearly all of our state — and prove to be a showstopper for both traditional access and new development,” she said.

Fox News carried the story in March.

We recently posted the story of the Klamath Basin water theft. In that case, the farmers and ranchers owned the water and it was stolen from them under the guise of it being needed for a sucker fish. They turned the land and water involved over to the Indians for now but the government has control. The farmers and ranchers are being squeezed out. Klamath Basin was once a flourishing U.S. breadbasket.

We will continue to see more of this.

EPA head Gina McCarthy has likened pollution to racism. She is in line with Obama who sees all fossil fuels as a threat to existence on earth. She is not transparent and refuses to provide information to Congress. The EPA keeps secret their preparations for rule making which will have a severe impact on the economy.

Vitter, who never receives a response to his emails to her, has said:

“I am concerned that the central functions of the agency have been obfuscated by ideology, frustrated by a severe lack of transparency, undermined by science the agency keeps hidden, and implemented without regard for economic consequences,” Vitter said. “The EPA eschews at all costs economic modeling that would verify the true impacts of the regulatory agenda that now provides this country with the lowest workforce participation rate since the Carter administration. Cost/benefit analyses as required under various executive orders and as required by the Clean Air Act … yet EPA remains intransigent in its opposition to having a transparent economic analysis process.”

McCarthy’s response is she doesn’t conduct business via email and she doesn’t know how to instant message at age 58.

    This is extremely serious and was reported in the “Durango Herald” last week. The Bergdahl scandal knocked it off the pages of any media. It goes unnoticed by the East Coast because it will impact the West first. I have watched this water takeover for five years now, but I noted the control the EPA claimed back in the 1980′s, over a river in the State of Colorado. Cost a lot of people a lot of money because the EPA has always believed it is a GOD.

    Those who pay attention know this is about power and control over every aspect of our lives by marxist enviro-zealots. My question, why has congress not shut off the spigot on EPA, namely funding!

    They threaten both our Property and our lives, and surely mean to make the availability of water a costly and prohibitive commodity.
    Time to change our government and cast off all those regulatory agencies into hell.

    I heard this line in a movie recently and it is very appropriate today concerning the current administration “When tyranny becomes a fact then revolution becomes a duty.”

    Just think of all of the private land owners who have installed fish ponds on their property … just for the peace and serenity and expanded habitat it provides. Now, coming soon to a home of someone you know … armed EPA swat agents … with a raid … probably confiscating fish, pumps, stones and liners … and declaring the property in violation of their mandates issued and endorsed by Obummer. It would be absolutely hilarious if it wasn’t already being planned for. Who knows, maybe the EPA will want you to install a “mega” thousand dollar water quality measuring device to insure that the quality of water in your “fish” pond meets the EPA’s water quality standards. You probably already know that if you have fish … too much nitrogen waste … “bye” “bye” fish … look for your fine in the mail!

    One more reason we need to keep GITMO open

    PS-This is my second try. I forgot the security question the first time, but now I am really confused. Do I use regular math or common core math?? And, if I do by-chance get the wrong answer, is it still OK?? I don’t want to feel embarassed or hurt if I get the wrong answer. Well, here goes anyway.

    This is very typical for a renegade de facto government presumes to have more authority than the people to whom they are accountable. The next thing they’ll say is that the waterway up into our toilets and faucets are also under their jurisdiction, thus they have authority over everything. This is just one more reason why we need to restore the common law Grand Juries (ref: US v. Williams, S.Ct. 1992) back to the people (visit NationalLibertyAlliance.org, watch the video and register to be a jurist). This is our last best hope to return America back to something our Founding Fathers might actually recognize.

    “…The Fifth Amendment’s provision for property confiscation is applied in eminent domain, which is nothing more than a form of organized theft:

    ‘Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance…. ‘ (Deuteronomy 19:14)

    “Eminent domain – the Constitutional Republic’s alleged right to seize property for the “betterment” of the people – is one way the government moves boundary markers and steals from its citizens….

    “This property appropriation and redistribution is allegedly justified under the guise of urban renewal, by which private property is condemned for private use or sometimes transferred from one private owner to another. This occurred in the infamous 2005 case of Kelo v. City of New London,22 in which the Supreme Court decided five to four in favor of stealing a private owner’s home and property and transferring it to another individual under the auspices of furthering economic development. These types of decisions were made possible when, in 1954, in Berman v. Parker,23 the Supreme Court expanded the government’s “right” to confiscate private property to include “eliminating blight” as justification for such theft. Because Deuteronomy 19:14 offers no exception clause, no individual or body of individuals has the authority to steal land by moving boundary markers, regardless the reason….”

    Whoever said this was all about control got it right. The left doesn’t even make an attempt to hide it’s Marxist agenda these days and still they get votes and more time in office to impose communism upon us. Stalin once noted that “Education is a weapon the effect of which depends upon at whom it is aimed.” Since the leftists control it…. we all know at whom it is aimed. One of the key points of communism is state control of all property. This is one way to move closer towards that end BUT there is always more to the liberal agenda than meets the eye.

    Controlling the population began with Obamacare. A good start for the leftists. (which, if you’ll note, is what they say about the first law controlling any agenda item) However Americans are resourceful and are already finding ways around the Washington DC control freaks via alternative medicine and health vacations to other countries. But since water truly IS the key to life….. once you control that the population is at your mercy. How many ways do you use water every day…. and how much do you use? Now think about waking up tomorrow and the toilet doesn’t flush, your shower doesn’t spray, and there is nothing coming out the tap to make oatmeal or wash the dishes. Screwed, aren’t you? Already some cities on the west coast (Washington and Oregon) are fining people for the “crime” of collecting the rainwater that comes off their roofs!

    So here is the tough question. Since the end game of the leftists is crystal clear….. what will you do to turn the tide and sweep the liberal trash out of all the corners of government?

    Sara Noble: “The EPA is about to grab power over all lakes, ponds, streams, puddles, ditches and trenches in the United States, including those on private property.”

    I re-post a comment posted on another article about a BLM Land Grab Protest as it relates to the same overall root problem:

    “Joshua Cook: ” ‘We paid taxes on that land,’ said Lockwood. ‘Now they tell us it’s not ours. Well we say we have a deed and we pay taxes. The man told me himself that a Texas deed does not trump the federal government.’ ”

    The fact that they “paid (sic) taxes on that land” proves that it’s not theirs.   Are you constitutionalists starting to get it yet ? 

    You’ve been duped because you thought you knew better than The Great I Am about such things as property rights and said “we will not have Him rule over us.  Give us a constitution like all the nations around us and we shall be like The Most High and make the laws.” 

    Here’s The ROOT of the problem:

    We told The Almighty that we know better about things like property rights and we’ll make the laws regarding property, as well as for everything else.

    “You shall not steal.” Ex. 20: 15. This Commandment from The Great I Am, is the foundation of all property rights.

    The pertinent statute under this Commandment regarding this subject is: “You shall not have in your bag differing weights (weights are units of measure), a large and a small.” Deut. 25: 13, Lev. 19: 35-37.   “Bag” is what one carries money in.

    He commanded gold & silver as the medium of exchange to use, primarily silver (e.g., Gen. 23: 14-16; Matt. 26: 15), NOT something MERELY BACKED by silver or gold.   

    He also commanded a fixed fineness & weight, i.e., the shekel of the sanctuary.  That’s what we’re to keep all our monetary valuations and do accounting in.  Lev. 27: 25.   

    Unjust weights & measures are an abomination to Yahweh, while just weights & measures are His delight.  Prov. 11: 1. 

    Moreover, we are not to lend upon usury (ANY % interest) to our racial kin. Deut. 23: 19-20.

    More citations to God’s Economic Laws can be given, but this should suffice for now.     

    Enter The Constitution:

    This power to decide what is to be “money” and determine it’s value, as well as the standard of it’s weight & measure was usurped by the god “We The People” via the constitution’s grant of this power to congress:

    “The Congress Shall Have Power To … coin Money, regulate the Value thereof … and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.”  Art. 1: Sec. 8 (Also note the power ” … To borrow Money on the credit of the United States …” was granted there as well.    NO mention of at No interest, I might add).

    The door was opened and the process began when we decided “We The People” should be god (sovereign) and decide what is to be the supreme law of the land, instead of obeying The Great I Am.  It didn’t START 100 years ago with The Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment.  These were mid range of the process.

    Eventually, we wound up with The Federal Reserve Act, which gave the power to issue the currency and control credit (5th. Plank of “The Communist Manifesto”).   

    “Give me the power to issue the currency and control the credit of any nation and I care not who makes it’s laws.” Nathan Rothschild.

    We now have a wicked and thieving monetary system of irredeemable Federal Reserve Notes (which are Promissory Notes and NOT payment, but “a mere discharge in equity.”), checks, credit & debit cards, direct deposit, etc.

    AND NOW, NONE OF YOU OWN ANYTHING ‘CAUSE YOU NEVER “PAID” for it! 

    ESPECIALLY so called “Private Property”.    IT’S NOT YOURS!   You only have an “Equitable Interest” in it!   You know, like: “How much equity do you have in this property”.   Get it ?

    Moreover, we’re all being robbed of the purchasing power of the fiat currency in circulation on a regular basis via the hidden tax called “inflation”, which is really an inflation of the “money” supply !   

    They even have the vast majority of this nation believing irredeemable Federal Reserve Notes to be, and calling them: “dollars”; just like they have the vast majority believing an “alternate life style” (sexual perversion) is OK and calls it: “gay” !

    The legislative process provided by the various federal and state constitutions was the vehicle used by the enemy to corrupt over time (via gradual increments) and finally take over.

    This nation wanted to determine what was “good and evil” instead of enforcing His Perfect Moral Laws.

    Malim in se (evil in and of itself as defined by The Great I Am, the ONLY lawgiver) vs. malim prohibitum (evil because someone determines or legislates it to be evil).

    The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth. Seek Him while He may yet be found.

    “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] system) upon you , and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.’ (Jer. 6: 16). My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matt. 11: 28 – 30.

    He told us that if His people ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., enforce His Laws, Statutes and Judgments – NOT ours); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    Look around you, the Judgments are happening before your eyes !

    Canada took away private water rights and placed all water rights across Canada under Government control.
    This was back when it was all about His Majesty the King. All water bodies, ponds, creekslakes etc are deleiniated from any land titles across Canada.

    So it looks like the Serfs known as the Greens working with EPA are intent upon returning to the king in the Whitehouse the same thing Canadians did for the King of England.

    28 Pleasant St
    Sarah,
    When they attempt to seize private property we need to have happen (1000 fold) what happened when BLM tried to confiscate Clive Bundy’s grazing rights, his property and even threatened his life. Like minded, armed citizens, property owners willing to stand shoulder to shoulder – armed if necessary to put a stop to this dictatorial regime and its agencies.
