Oh, this is priceless.
Obama invokes a 1906 law to enable him and the federal government to steal more than 550M acres of State land!
However, let me be perfectly clear: It is for “Conservation”. Oh, of course! The all-encompassing term that allows the government to legally grab as much of State land as it possibly can before Obama departs in less than 20 days.
This must make Obama’s latest insane power-grab okay. The magic word “conservation” means we can’t call it theft…which is precisely what it is, in this case.
According to Breitbart:
“That makes a total of 553 million acres of national lands and waters that Obama has repurposed for conservation and protection using the 1906 Antiquities act, more than any other president, according to the New York Times. More than 80 percent of Nevada and about 65 percent or Utah is owned by the federal government, according to National Public Radio.”
Let’s also be crystal clear on this: It’s not really the location that matters. Obama has other plans for this massive land grab by the feds; his objective is much more significant. He wants to ensure that he outdoes FDR in confiscating land!
“Obama has used his power to create 29 separate national monuments, using the Antiquities Act, but the Washington Post reports that he is expected to create one or two more in order to match or beat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s record of 30 designations.”
Oh, yes, thank God that it’s for something real important! If he can beat FDR’s record, well then, that will be…just…peachy? Not sure what all this means. Is this whole land-grab thing like a video game to Obama? He has to have the high score?
Anyway, that aside, as you can imagine, some lawmakers are not very happy about all this abscondence with State land in the “middle of the night”. Utah Senator Mike Lee stated that he will be working with the incoming Trump administration and the new Congress to ensure that these injustices are corrected.
Always Remember: “Don’t steal…the government hates competition.”
