Skip to comments.BLM DENIES LAND GRAB—TEXAS OFFICIALS STAND GROUND
Posted on 04/23/2014 1:47:11 PM PDT by kingattax
In a statement posted on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management website (BLM), federal officials denied any expansion of holdings along the Red River after Breitbart Texas brought the matter to national attention.
The nuanced denial has drawn critical reactions from a number of elected Texas officials.
BLM spokesman Paul McGuire said The 140-acres in question were determined to be public land in 1986 when the U.S. District Court ruled on a case brought by two private landowners, each seeking to adjust boundary lines for their respective properties. The BLM was not a party to any litigation between landowners. The 140-acres were at no time held in private ownership.

Looks to me like the obama and his band of commie rats, using the BLM, are probing the enemy’s defenses before a battle.
Nothing the BLM says can be believed.
This is an election year and the politicians in Texas need to make noise to keep grassroots conservatives on their side, so Mr. Abbott made his noise to draw a BLM response.
“The 140-acres were at no time held in private ownership.
Then explain this:
VAN SUSTEREN: And they seized it without any compensation?
HENDERSON: Yes. I bought the land in 1979. As a matter of fact, I borrowed a portion of the money from Farmer’s Home Administration,... And they came out and inspected the land and said it was all here, surveyed it, and forced me to buy a title policy. And when we lost it, they refused to pay, even though they said that they guaranteed the title to this place whenever I was buying it and so, I have continued to have to pay for this land or the federal government would seize everything else I had. I made my last payment this January on land that I lost in 1984 in a lawsuit.
Liars like their head witch doctor.
Texas Rangers are waiting top arrest them.
So wonder if Wendy "Mengele" Davis is out supporting the BLM and Harry Reid?
Your from Illinois—I grew up in Oregon and remember them well. They’ve gotten worse, but in states where the Feds own a good chunk of the land, they’ve been hard to miss for a while.
You would have heard of them if you lived out West. They control most of the land for 1000s of square miles around me. They were around long before O came into office.
After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Managements (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLMs authority to take such action.
I am about ready, General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, to go to the Red River and raise a Come and Take It flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas....
As to what kind of standoff might Texas might be facing with the BLM on this matter, Abbott said, I think that we should be able to resolve this from a legal standpoint because, I believe, what the BLM is doing clearly violates the law. They dont have any legal standing whatsoever to do this and thats why I have issued this letter today.
In the letter, Gen. Abbott details five issues for the BLM to address:
Please delineate with specificity each of the steps for the RMP/EIS process for property along the Red River.
Please describe the procedural due process the BLM will afford to Texans whose property may be claimed by the federal government.
Please confirm whether the BLM agrees that, from 1923 until the ratification of the Red River Boundary Compact, the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma was the gradient line of the south bank of the Red River. To the extent the BLM does not agree, please provide legal analysis supporting the BLMs position.
Please confirm whether the BLM still considers Congress ratification of the Red River Boundary Compact as determinative of its interest in land along the Red River? To the extent the BLM does not agree, please provide legal analysis supporting the BLMs new position.
Please delineate with specificity the amount of Texas territory that would be impacted by the BLMs decision to claim this private land as the property of the federal government.
The letter today, Abbott explained, is the first shot in the legal process. We expect answers from them and based upon their answers we will decide what legal action to take.

Fedgov Taqqiya. Brought to you under the auspices of the mulsim in the white hut.
The BLM has been around since the mid 1940s under the Department of the Interior. They're not new.
” on a case brought by two private landowners, each seeking to adjust boundary lines for their respective properties. The BLM was not a party to any litigation between landowners. The 140-acres were at no time held in private ownership”
Uh,,color me confused.
Two PRIVATE landowners,,seeking to adjust boundary lines,,,,and then we segue to the 140 acres (was 116 in Abbott’s letter) was “at no time held in private ownership”
Is that Obamaspeak? Can I get a translator please?
Uhm,, Mr Abbott doesn’t need to make any noise. His position is secure.
So wonder if Wendy “Mengele” Davis is out supporting the BLM and Harry Reid?
Wendy is hiding under a pink rock somewhere waiting for her next Sugah Daddy to bail her out.
The BLM opened up a can of worms in Nevada.
However, if BLM invades Texas, it will make the Bundy raid look like a
Tens of thousands of Texas Patriots will show up to defend Texas landowners. Don’t mess with Texas.
