EXCLUSIVE--TEXAS AG ABBOTT TO BLM: 'COME AND TAKE IT'
Breitbart ^ | April 22, 2014 | By Bob Price

Posted on 04/22/2014 1:56:16 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s 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 BLM’s newly asserted claims to land along the Red River threaten to upset long-settled private property rights and undermine fundamental principles—including the rule of law—that 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 they’ve 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!

Greg Abbott was already on his way to demolishing Wendy ("Abortion Barbie") Davis in the gubernatorial election. This will add even more point to the upcoming landslide for a true Texan and a genuine Patriot.

It is time to inquire about the local sheriff’s attitude toward federales coming into his jurisdiction and doing whatever they want.

Hmmm... I wonder if the Texas Guard has already swapped those Apaches for Blackhawks.

Better hang on to those puppies, boys - we may need them yet, if the BLM gets froggy.

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.

I dunno, I've been taking an informal poll of my Texas friends and they all seem pretty happy with the idea of federal agents coming to take the land.

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.

The Red River Boundary Compact, passed by the legislatures of both Texas and Oklahoma, and approved by congress in 2000 is the controlling authority on this. BLM hasn't got a damn thing to do with it.

Greg Abbott is just the lawyer to deal with it. He's made a career out of suing the federal government, it seems.

Likewise with Senator Ted Cruz and Ted Nugent both of whom embody more authentic Texas values than natives such as the baby killer apologist Willie Nelson and his best friend, Wendy Davis.

Texas AG to the BLM, “Molon Labe”

I disagree with your formulation.

This is no time to be using Greek to express a Texas/Oklahoma sentiment in good old Southwestern English phraseology, namely:

"If you think you got the hosses, bud, come try to take it !!"

Great timing BLM. This will take the eyes off the legal situation in Nevada and appear to be a continuation of Federal land grabs.

You might have had some sympathy with your legal argument against the Bundys, but now you’re messing with Texas.
