Posted on 04/22/2014 1:56:16 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
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 go to the Red River and raise a Come and Take It flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.
Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab.
I am deeply concerned about the notion that the Bureau of Land Management believes the federal government has the authority to swoop in and take land that has been owned and cultivated by Texas landowners for generations, General Abbott wrote. The BLMs newly asserted claims to land along the Red River threaten to upset long-settled private property rights and undermine fundamental principlesincluding the rule of lawthat form the foundation of our democracy. Yet, the BLM has failed to disclose either its full intentions or the legal justification for its proposed actions. Decisions of this magnitude must not be made inside a bureaucratic black box.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas, General Abbott said, This is the latest line of attack by the Obama Administration where it seems like they have a complete disregard for the rule of law in this country ...And now theyve crossed the line quite literally by coming into the State of Texas and trying to claim Texas land as federal land. And, as the Attorney General of Texas I am not going to allow this.

Looks like the BLM is now trying to kick out the Texas ranchers, as they did 53 of the 54 ranchers in Nevada! This may be a job for the MILITIA!
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
way past time for some "ALTERING AND ABOLISHING"
As I was saying, we the people are the final arbiters of all things constitutional per the Declaration. Government derives its just powers at the consent of the governed. Unless I miss my guess, arbitration is on the docket.
Well how cool is that..
Texas AG to the BLM, “Molon Labe”
It is time to inquire about the local sheriff’s attitude toward federales coming into his jurisdiction and doing whatever they want.
Better hang on to those puppies, boys - we may need them yet, if the BLM gets froggy.
GTT: Gone to Texas
The man is in a wheelchair and he’s braver than the governor. I’ll be proud to stand beside him on the Red River. I wasn’t born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could.
That's what "fill yer hand you son of a bitch" means in Texan, right?
Wendy Davis’ response was “If they try to take Texas land I’ll kick them with my tennis shoes.”
I’m not see any description of why the BLM wants to take this land. Somebody, somewhere must know what they want the land for.
Hey FedGov scum; DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS really is NOT just a saying. Ya morons.
/A self-professed Naturalized Texan...
People overlook that most of the Alamo patriots were not born here either. Texans none the less.
