Omnibus Lands Vote, Hundreds of Bills In One, Call Senators Now
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have put together a massive bill with hundreds of Wilderness and land lock up bills inside that have not yet passed the Congress in 2010.
Things are being done in secret. No bill number yet. Included will be all the Wilderness Bills, Billion Dollar LWCF Trust Fund, Corps and EPA Land and Water Jurisdiction Grab and many, many more.
Reid is going around to the Republicans and getting them to agree to sign on. You must make it clear to the Republicans that this vote is a threat to rural America and you and will be remembered forever.
When you call, do not threaten. Just make it clear that this is a terrible bill where they have lumped together hundreds of bills that no Senator has read completely.
Let them know you are telling all your neighbors, friends, allies, and business associates about the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill and will remember how they vote on this bill when you vote in the future.
- - - - -
-----You must urge your Senators to filibuster, place a hold on, or otherwise delay the Omnibus Lands Bill. They must agree to vote against it when it comes to a vote. The Senate has a limited amount of time in the Lame Duck Session. Every day your Senator delays the bill gives rural America a better chance to survive this onslaught.
-----Do Not Make The Mistake Of Ignoring the Omnibus Lands Bill because it does not yet have a number. Harry Reid is trying to keep the bill in secret.
- - - - -
There are two NEW stories from Energy and Environment Newsletter below. One talks about how the Pew Foundation and their environmental allies are orchestrating the campaign to pass the Omnibus Lands Bill.
They are trying to undermine opposition by saying that hunters and fishermen are supporting this bill. They have no idea what is in it and would oppose it if they knew.

Be sure to go to www.landrights.org for more information on the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.
The 2010 Omnibus Lands Bill is now being prepared for a vote during the Lame Duck session of Congress. The vote could come as early as this week. It may be delayed until next week or even later.
The 2010 Omnibus Lands Bill is the biggest threat to you and Rural American in our history. Dont worry about the bill number. Keeping you from getting the bill number is just a Democrat trick to keep you from fighting back.
You must not let your Senators phone, fax and e-mail stop ringing.
Go down the list of Senators below. Yours will likely be there. In the rush, we may have left one or two out. If your Senator is not listed, call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 223-3121 and ask for your Senator by name. When you get the office, ask for the person handling the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill being finalized by Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).
The vote on this giant bill could come this week so call your Senators immediately. The vote may be delayed into next week. Make your calls every day. You cannot take a chance that Harry Reid will sneak the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill through in the dark of night.
-----Look at the special new article in Energy and Environment Newsletter below.
-----Emergency Congressional Vote Action Items:
-----1. Forward this message to your entire e-mail list.
By forwarding this message you can help create an uprising against the Omnibus Federal Lands bill that rears it ugly head in the Lame Duck Session of Congress put together by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
-----2. Call both your Senators at least once a day for the next two weeks. Tell them it is an insult to voters to have the Congress vote on a massive lands package with hundreds of bills that almost no Senator has read completely. Clearly Harry Reid did not get the message in November election.
Tell them you oppose the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill that will likely have the LWCF Trust Fund (S 3663) hidden inside. (They may change the bill number to fool you. Insist that they stop the LWCF Trust Fund).
They must also stop the Corps and EPA Wetlands Land Grab (HR 5088 and S 787). Any Senator may be called at (202) 224-3121. Their phones, faxes and e-mail machines must not stop ringing.
The Omnibus Federal Lands Bill will likely have a completely new number and have these bills inside.
Even if the Trust Fund and Corps EPA bills do not make it in the Omnibus Lands Bill, it still must be stopped. The 2010 Omnibus Lands Bill his a HUGE increase in Wilderness and land lock ups.
-----3. Your Senators must be deluged with calls, faxes and e-mails opposing the any Omnibus Lands Bill. Thats because it will include hundreds of Wilderness and other lands bills as well as the Billion Dollar LWCF Trust Fund (S 3663) and the Corps EPA Wetlands Water and Land Grab Bill (HR 5088 and S 787).
Your Senators and Congressman may vote for this bill when they ordinarily might oppose it because most of them have something in the package they want. Senator Reid does this on purpose. He puts a bill in that each Republican wants in order to buy their vote. It is the total package kills you.
You must tell your Senators and Congressman that any vote for any Omnibus Federal Lands Bill will be remembered and held against them forever.
-----The Omnibus Federal Lands Bill must not pass or you will lose in a huge way. If they do vote on the 2010 Omnibus Federal Lands Bill, we will send you a vote summary so you know what your Senator did. You need to tell the Senate staff you talk to that you will get a vote summary.
-----This Omnibus Lands Bill is the biggest threat to you since American Land Rights was founded. It is bigger even than CARA.
You can call any Senator at (202) 224-3121. Call any Congressman at (202) 225-3121.
-----4. Call your Senator to ask for a commitment to vote NO on any Omnibus Federal Lands Bill. No bill number was available at press time. But any staff person will understand when you call opposing any Omnibus Federal Lands Bill. Ask for the staff person who handles Federal land issues for your Senator and Congressman.
-----5. Hand out copies of this e-mail to your friends and business associates. Carry copies in your truck or car.
-----6. Call your friends and neighbors to get them to call both your Senators at (202) 224-3121. Have them call your Congressman also at (202) 225-3121.
The Lame Duck session of Congress restarted November 29th. Dont let your Senators get away with a dark of night backroom vote where they are no longer responsible to the voters. Your call could make the difference.
-----At the bottom of this e-mail are two New stories from Energy and Environment Newsletter about the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill and the Lame Duck Session.
Remember in a Lame Duck Session you have all the defeated and retired Members of the House and Senate voting. The new Congress does not get to vote until after January 1st.
Dont take any Senator for granted. A number of your friends in Congress voted for the 2009 Omnibus Federal Lands Bill that included many bills that hurt you rolled into one. That must not be allowed to happen again.
-----We have put a (Y) by the name of each Senator in the list below who voted for the 2009 Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.
The 2010 Omnibus Federal Lands Bill will include hundreds of bills that threaten you. The worst are the LWCF Billion Dollar Trust Fund and the Corps and EPA Wetlands Jurisdiction Land Grab.
Here are your Senators you must call, fax and e-mail. Remember you may call any Senator at (202) 224-3121. Notice that a number of Republicans voted for the 2009 Omnibus Lands Bill. Each Senator with a (Y) after their name voted for the 2009 Omnibus. Make sure you tell them you know that when you call.
Be sure to note that there is an underscore_ between the first and last name of each staff person.

-----Omnibus Lands Bill Sneak Attack In Lame Duck, Youll Lose!
The Omnibus Federal Lands bill as well as the LWCF Billion Dollar Trust Fund and the Corps and EPA Wetlands Land and Water Grab bill can be stopped but you and ALRA as well as many other groups as possible must participate.
You must let any Congressman or Senator who votes for the likely Omnibus Federal Lands Bill know now, before the vote, that you will remember and he or she will be held accountable.
-----The Election is over and a whole lot of defeated Congressmen and Senators no longer need to pay attention to the voters in the Lame Duck Session of Congress that restarted November 29th. They still get to vote even though they were defeated or retired.
The Lame Duck Session of Congress is incredibly dangerous to you.
There must be an uprising of opposition to Congress passing any Omnibus Federal Lands Bill, Billion Dollar LWCF Land Acquisition Trust Fund and Corps and EPA Wetlands Water and Land Grab. They will likely be rolled into one package. It will be called The Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.
No bill number yet. But rural America and your future are on the line.
This must be an uprising of opposition. Because these are Democrat bills, you must make it clear that if these bills pass, the Democrats will suffer even more in 2012. Because they are largely Democrat bills, it is more likely that their outgoing sponsors will seek to shove them through the Lame Duck Session of Congress.
This is the most dangerous time for you. Any Congressman or Senator who is defeated for election or is retiring will no longer be accountable to the voters. Yet they still get to vote on your future in the Lame Duck session of Congress.
The likelihood of the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill passing in the Lame Duck is great. That bill is likely to include the Billion Dollar LWCF (S 3663) and the Corps EPA Wetlands Land and Water Grab Bill (HR 5088 and S 787).
Ask your Senator to filibuster the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill and the LWCF Trust Fund as well and Corps EPA Wetlands Land and Water Grab. He or she can also put a hold on it that will slow it down or stop it.
Even when Congress is out, their offices are open and they have staff there so keep your calls flooding their phones.
Nothing is more dangerous to you than a Lame Duck session. That is because many Congressmen and Senators have either lost their elections or have retired but still come back and vote.
They are no longer responsible to you.
Chuck Cushman American Land Rights Association Keep Private Lands In Private Hands Coalition (360) 687-3087 email@example.com
P.S. You must deluge your Senators and Congressman with calls, faxes and e-mails opposing the 2010 Omnibus Federal Lands Bill. You must also mention the LWCF Billion Dollar Trust fund and the Corps and EPA Wetlands Land Grab.
They will likely be inserted into the Omnibus Federal Lands Bill. Your Senators and Congressman must understand they will be held accountable for any vote for these bills or the 2010 Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.
If this bill passes, youll get tied up in a nightmare of red tape, bureaucracy and land acquisition. Eminent domain and condemnation will be hanging over your head forever

Things are being done in secret.
Everything this thieving, lying, subversive Congress does is secret. This is NOT Constitutional.
Are they begging the peasants to revolt?
We're going to have to start demanding the GOP leadership and our representatives begin holding press conferences to give the serfs a heads-up on stuff like this.
This is all about energy and natural gas. We have four or five times the Saudis energy. The Saudis own DC and they own the 6 American TV networks. Direct shareholders in Fox/News Corp, CNN/TW and Disney/ABC. The have deals with GE/NBC, Viamcom/CBS and Bloomberg.
You are being made slaves people. Energy serfs. Keep watching Tv because ALL of TV supports this and Obama.
I cannot WAIT ‘til these morons go on Christmas break.
same goes for the decision yesterday to ban gulf oil drilling for 5 more years...he really hates AMERICA and is trying to destroy us and OUR way of living...can’t put in writing my true true feelings!
They will not fear us until we are breaking down their front doors...
It’s a coup and people don’t even realize it.
Action Alert ping!
Thanks for posting Jo!
Good GRIEF- the minute we turn our heads over here- something dreadful pops up over there.
Impossible to keep up with the shenanigans of this damned congress.
Thanks for the ping.
Do we know what they are taking and where?
He is a Saudi agent.
This was decided many years ago.
The land will return to the wilderness it was 400 years ago so the elite will have a place to hunt, fish and relax after a grueling day of ruling over the little people.
Maybe we should just contact Mitch McConnell and beg him to hold up everything until the end of the lame duck session.
Reid is trying to put together the base for the NWO plan. I hope the strain is too much for the old traitor.
If I fired my cook, why would I give him two more months to ruin food, piss in the coffee, etc. ?
We just fired these a**hats. Why let them pass anything at all? Why let them meet at all?
Keep me ON - glad you’re back.
These oligarchy blokes
want to make all of North America—certainly North of the Rio Grande—
into essentially a huge national park.
They want to remove all evidence of man from all but a few relatively small cities and recreational centers for the elite staffed by a minimal number of slaves/serfs.
And, as noted many times, they want to abolish all hint of private property—except for theirs, of course.
Some evil satanic pigs are more equal than others.
Thanks for the ping!
So much for “transparency”.
They are going to shove as much down our throats as they can, while ignoring the real needs of this nation.
You can say that again-they figure if they set enough fires, we can’t keep up with all of them. For example, the mosque has already dropped below the radar, now it’s airport groping, now this. And we haven’t even dealt with CommieCare yet.
Good to see you back, Jo! You’ve been missed!
I’ve been lurking, but no time to dive deep.
Thought this was a worthy post.
It’s always nice to visit Free Republic during
the holidays. Right up there with Bing Crosby’s
“White Christmas”, “The Christmas Story”, Eggnog
and Gingerbread cookies.
Yup... smells nice.
ALRA mentions the LWCF and the LWCF legislation is definitely in the CLEAR Act. This passed out of the House as HR 3534 in August.
