Obama’s Gain And Our Loss Of Private Property (Repost)


Editor’s note: One only needs to look at the evidence to ascertain that President Obama believes in Agenda 21 and is not devoted to private property rights. I am reposting articles concerning private property that should concern all of us.

The ‘Great Outdoors Initiative’ is another way our President is working his way through the backdoor to slaughter another American-loving right, private property.  Obama, his bureaucrats and plenty of radical environmentalists are attempting to pull off this perfect storm with the use of the Land and Water Conservation Fund.  Of course it looks all warm and fuzzy to attract the public, but it is really an example of how the government will own and regulate our lands, destroy jobs and many rights we have as Americans.

How Obama is locking up our land

Waving goodbye to property rights…

My column today raises bright red flags about a little-noticed, radical green land grab program underway at the White House called the “Great Outdoors Initiative.” Keep in mind my previous coverage of Obama’s War on the West and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s job destruction. The War on the West is a war on property rights, a war on the economy, and a war on the American way of life.

Have you heard of the “Great Outdoors Initiative”? Chances are, you haven’t. But across the country, White House officials have been meeting quietly with environmental groups to map out government plans for acquiring untold millions of acres of both public and private land. It’s another stealthy power grab through executive order that promises to radically transform the American way of life.

In April, President Obama issued a memorandum outlining his “21st century strategy for America’s great outdoors.” It was addressed to the Interior Secretary, the Agriculture Secretary, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency and the chair of the Council on Environmental Quality. The memo calls on the officials to conduct “listening and learning sessions” with the public to “identify the places that mean the most to Americans, and leverage the support of the Federal Government” to “protect” outdoor spaces. Eighteen of 25 planned sessions have already been held. But there’s much more to the agenda than simply “reconnecting Americans to nature.”

The federal government, as the memo boasted, is the nation’s “largest land manager.” It already owns roughly one of every three acres in the United States. This is apparently not enough. At a “listening session” in New Hampshire last week, government bureaucrats trained their sights on millions of private forest land throughout the New England region. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack crusaded for “the need for additional attention to the Land and Water Conservation Fund — and the need to promptly support full funding of that fund.”
