In 2013, a federal judge decimated the Bureau of Land Management ("BLM").
Federal Judge Rules
for Property Rights, Smacks Down Abusive Feds
The court case, U.S. v. Hage, has been keenly watched by legal analysts and constitutional scholars — but has been completely ignored by the
...in June 2012, Judge Jones had issued a scorching preliminary bench ruling that charged federal officials of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the
Bureau of Land Management (BLM) with an ongoing series of illegal actions against Nevada rancher E. Wayne Hage... that the judge described as
“abhorrent” and a literal, criminal conspiracy.
... “the government and the agents of the government in that locale, sometime in the ’70s and ’80s, entered into a conspiracy, a literal,
intentional conspiracy, to deprive the Hages of not only their permit grazing rights, for whatever reason, but also to deprive them of their vested
property rights under the takings clause...
The media corporate media has an obvious bias. In the case of the Bundy's, they stated that he hadnt "paid his fees for years", omitting the fact
that these cases can last for decades.
In fact, Judge Jones accused the federal bureaucrats of racketeering under the federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corruption
Organizations) statute, and accused them as well of extortion, mail fraud, and fraud, in an effort “to kill the business of Mr. Hage.”
The court found, "In the present case, the Government's actions over the past two decades shock the conscience of the Court." This finding, coupled
with the court’s finding that agents of the BLM and the USFS engaged in a conspiracy to deprive the Hage family of their vested property rights,
opens the door to potential lawsuits against the individual agents personally for their unconstitutional actions.
This is CRUCIAL. We have to start suing these jack booted thugs ("JBT") in civil court, going after their personal property. Otherwise, they simply
hide behind the giant shield of government.
The ruling chronicles the drama of the 21-day trial in Reno, Nevada, last spring between rancher Wayne N. Hage who, unable to afford an
attorney, represented himself, and Mark Pollot, the estate's attorney, who were defending their case against two federal agencies represented by a
cadre of attorneys and staff from the Justice Department.
Tonopah BLM manager, Tom Seley, and Forest Ranger Steve Williams were both found to be in contempt of court, and were referred to the U.S. attorney
for possible prosecution for criminal obstruction of justice.
What kind of system have we allowed? A massive federal government, with near unlimited power, using our tax money against us...
Meanwhile we have to somehow scrape together the funds for competent legal representation, which can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Make no mistake about it. This is by design. The federal JBTs rely on their ability to scare and bankrupt us into submission.
No moral person (Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, independent) can possibly defend or agree with this.
