Now, maybe, we can get some media outlet to re-open the Harry Reid/Chinese Solar Energy deal and connect the dots back to the basis of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Standoff which was a protest to point out the BLM's strong-arm tactics to force ranchers to break generational grazing and water treaties in order to have access to the mineral deposits and expose the corrupt actors profiting from the******of our land (Bundy - gold, Hammond - uranium1)? |
This is far from over. What if the main reason for the heavy handed prosecutorial misconduct, in both the Hammond and the Bundy cases, stems from the Government's overwhelming need to keep the breadth and scope of corruption regarding all aspects of the management of public lands out of the public eye?
One argument, in the defense of both cases, is that the Federal Government can only "own" land under Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 (unless it's a territory or with permission from the state). The gravest concern over the eventual outcome of all the unrest in the west (beyond prosecution of those part of corruption) is that the Fed's would have to finally cede their land holdings back to the states (80% of the west is claimed as Federal Land).
