Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17. The enclave clause, disagrees with your accessment. Does that land have federal buildings, or military purpose? Or is this a land grab, so an utterly corrupt politician, and his son, can make bank, on "your public land" by solar plants and fracking?
Or did you want to tell me it is really about the turtles, whom, the BLM is euthanizing, probably to make way for the plant and fracking?
Government was limited to what it could do with said land, for this very reason.
This is not isolated incident, he's the last rancher there out of 50ish. This is what i would call, a pattern. A 5 billion dollar deal pattern, carried out slowly over time. And it works too, as this scenario is played out all over the place, with no way left to petition for a redress of grievances.
You also may want to look at Section 4 of Article 4. You forgot to mention the gaurantee of a republic in that article, or did you just quote it from an anarchist site, without investigating the context? It is to be read as one contiguous document. Not cherry picked like the "Bible".
Your turn now. Explain to me why you have not produced notorized documents from a grand jury showing due process. Article 6 demands it, amendment 5 demands it, and article 7 demands it. Show me legally binding juristiction the BLM has to enforce anything they are trying to do, within the strict confines of law.
Hint, you can't. That is why the Nevada courts sided with Bundy, and punted it to the Federal courts.
So, lets focus back on the law shall we? Let us up the ante and start discussing the failure of Reids Oath, known as Breach of Peace, (Article 1, Section 6, Clause 1), RICO violations, and Reid, his son, possibly conspiring to take away rights (due process) under TITLE 18 USC 241-242, etc. Need i go on?
Instead of listening to your daily propaganda nightly news source (since domestic propaganda is "legal" again), go reseach the relevant laws, and think for yourself.
While you are at it, you should start at, and read Senate Report 93-549 for some "Enlightenment". That alone should open your eyes. It certanly did with mine.
Happy Journeys. :-)
