The U.S. Constitution does not permit the federal government to own state land unless for commercial activity around ports, for military bases under the forts doctrine, post offices and ten square miles around Washington D.C.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has no constitutional authority to exist and must be defunded by the Congress of the United States. Ref: Article 1, section 8, clause 17. The federal government can only control land within the states but only with permission of the state legislature.
The U.S. Attorney currently prosecuting the ranchers from Nevada, the Bundy’s, (Ammon and Cliven) and others for their refusal to comply with unconstitutional laws, by trying to force them to pay for grazing licenses (on state land illegally occupied by the federal government) was originally fired by President Bush.
On December 7, 2006 – Justice Department official Michael Battle informed seven U.S. Attorneys with poor evaluations in the Bush Department of Justice (DOJ), including Daniel G. Bogden the attorney from Nevada prosecuting the Bundy’s, that they were being summarily dismissed.
U.S. Attorney Daniel G. Bogden of the United States District Court in the District of Nevada was then officially fired by President Bush from his position in the Department of Justice on February 28th, 2007 after failing to perfume his said duties as required, for poor performance evaluations and for lack of loyalty to the President of the United States and the U.S. Constitution.
This is the same man now leading the charge to prosecute ranchers in Nevada for trying to make a peaceful living operating within the confines of the U.S. Constitution who protected their personal property from unlawful rustling by said BLM agents.
Ranchers who then protected their families under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution when BLM agents assaulted family members including the tasering of a pregnant woman.
The Obama administration and his DOJ team do not seem to want to follow the U.S. Constitution and are now using a former attorney fired by President Bush in 2007 to take out a family who are trying to bring attention to the unlawful and unconstitutional assault on state land and ranchers by the BLM.
How did this U.S. attorney Daniel G. Bogden get back into a position of authority to lead this unconstitutional assault on these American ranchers, with many now facing indictment and prosecution including the possible execution of a peaceful rancher by authorities in Oregon named Robert “LaVoy” Finicum ?.
He was rehired by the President Barack Obama on July 31st, 2009.
Wake up America. Your land your life and your liberty could be next.
I call upon Mr. Trump the next president of the United States to investigate, prosecute and punish any and all federal employees who could be unlawfully trying to violate the constitutional rights of the Bundy’s the Hammond’s and all ranchers in the western states and across this nation.
The BLM must be defunded and dismantled and all land currently occupied by federal forces returned back to state control.
The Hammond’s and the Bundy’s are now political prisoners of the Obama administration. They must be released immediately and damages must be paid to these families including the wife and foster children of Mr. Finicum.
