May 10 ride may be much bigger than anticipated ( BLM : Utah )
San Juan Record ^ | Apr 23, 2014

Posted on 04/27/2014 9:03:26 PM PDT by george76

What was initially conceived as a ride involving a handful of Blanding residents in Recapture Canyon could grow into a massive statement against the federal government.

San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman has called for the May 10 ATV ride on public land in the canyon, located just east of Blanding city limits.

Lyman said he has lost patience with the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which “temporarily” closed the area to vehicular traffic in 2007 and has yet to reopen it.

Lyman said the ride is to make a statement regarding local jurisdiction.

However, because of the timing of another protest against BLM action in Nevada, the ride may attract significantly more people and interest than originally conceived.

Lyman said the idea for the ride originated from a February town hall meeting in Blanding. After the ride was planned, but before it could be announced, concern about federal government intrusion into public lands was enflamed by an altercation involving rancher Cliven Bundy in Nevada.

...

With another public land protest scheduled in Blanding several weeks after the Bundy altercation, local officials are not sure what the response will be.

Lyman reports that one large ATV organization suggested that they could invite all 15,000 of their members to converge on Blanding for the ride.

“Most of the people that are interested in this are older, retired people who feel that enough is enough,” said Lyman. “Initially, this is a protest of the people of Blanding who are fed up, but it appears to be growing.”

Vehical access to the area was closed in 2007 by the local BLM office by a “Supervisor’s Discretionary Closure Action”.

This is a good idea. Bring on the “civil disobedience!” Everywhere! Make the BLM function like a bunch of cats covering $h!t trying to “protect their property.”

What a great idea! If I didn't live 3,000 miles across the ocean and several hundred miles across land, I'd be there with my UTV also. It's time Obama see what 60+ yo "activists" thinks about his community organizing. It's payback time. We want our America back and we want it NOW!!!

Heard a re-run of Roger Hedgecock today ...he thinks Bundy is wrong since the courts continually found against him and still Bundy refused to pay for grazing.

But there is a larger issue here, the left-wing judges continually overriding the people’s votes, the overbearing government and it’s bureaucrats who abuse we the citizens, the recent sequester crap in which we weren’t even supposed to look at Mt. Rushmore etc, the enrichment of those who make the laws, and their special favors to themselves at our expense.

I can’t help but favor someone who has essentially said I Will Not Comply....even if part of what he’s done is on shaky ground.

Tell Roger Hedgecock we will listen when the IRS sends 200 armed troops to collect the $1.9 million from Al Shapton!

This interview was conducted with Wayne Hage at the Pine Creek Ranch in Nevada. It sheds light on who is buying up the water rights in the western states, and how the BLM and Forest service use dirty tactics to take water rights and the land from lawful owners.

I’m marking May 10 on my calendar. I don’t want to miss the sight of a few thousand senior citizens riding their ATVs through Harry Reid’s backyard in an act of civil disobedience. Perfection.

Several years ago, and at the request of the BLM, the county submitted a Title V application to assume responsibility for the area. The county would develop, maintain, police and supervise access to the area. The Title V application is challenged by a number of environmental organizations. County officials say that after several years of failed promises that the application would be processed, they have lost faith in the effort.

Lotsa work ahead to reclaim our land.

AMEN! If patriots waited for a pure as the driven snow leadership, we'd all still be paying taxes to The Crown, even as we grumbled in our tea cups.

That also applies to present day elections.

He is not on shakey ground. Over-Regulation and Over-Taxation and land grabbing without representation is not shakey ground my friend. A three letter brownshirt federal agency is not what I call good representation.

“People may think we are jumping on the Bundy train,” said Lyman at an April 21 Commissioner work meeting, “but this was planned before the events in Nevada.”

Who cares what they think. Just RIDE!

"This interview was conducted with Wayne Hage..."

No, it was Wayne Hage Jr. There is an extended interview, about 2 hours long, with Wayne Hage Sr on the internet. Required viewing for those wishing to know the story of Pine Creek Ranch.

By the way, after Wayne Hage's first wife died he met and married Helen Chenoweth, one of the first great conservative congresswomen.

What an awesome family.
