Ted Cruz Says BLM Needs To Sell Land, Not Grab More
The Inquisitr ^ | April 29, 2014

Posted on 04/29/2014 10:31:41 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Ted Cruz feels the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) should be reducing claims on public lands. The Republican Texas Senator is among those lawmakers weighing in on the Red River Texas and Oklahoma boundary dispute with the federal agency.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the BLM Red River boundary dispute may cause approximately 90,000 acres of privately held land to fall into the hands of the federal government. Texas rancher Tommy Henderson has become the focal point of the BLM dispute. Supporters from around the country are rallying around Henderson, much in the same manner as protesters did for Cliven Bundy and the Bundy ranch standoff in Nevada. Armed BLM agents have not arrived in Texas as they did in Bunkerville, but the issue many are calling yet another “land grab” by the federal agency could ultimately evolve into a similar standoff.

US Senator Ted Cruz, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, and Governor Rick Perry have all commented on the plight of rancher Tommy Henderson and his neighbors along the Red River.

Cruz had this to say about the BLM attempting to claim land which is currently held in private hands with a legal deed in the Lone Star State:

“This is an important story that Breitbart broke and it is something that concerns me a great deal. In my view, the BLM already controls far too much land. We should be reducing the amount of federal land that the BLM controls and the amount of land that the federal government owns.”

The BLM used to be the Land Office.

Hmmmm. Where have I heard that before?

Yes, that's exactly what should happen and the states and right-thinking public officials should hold the feds feet to the fire over this and GET 'ER DONE.

This is why he is a leader, and the clueless Pauls are floundering in the back.
Later they will be crying me too or I thought of that first only I didn’t say it.

Careful what you wish for Senator. The BLM will end up selling it off to China.

Recently, US House Representative Steve Horsford (D. Nev.), a freshman Nevada Representative made a public statement:
“ - - - the militiamen need to leave the area around Cliven Bundy’s cattle ranch because they’re scaring kids trying to walk to school. - - - “

Hmmmm- - - - ?

” - - - kids “trying” to walk to school - - - “ ?

Bundy lives on an ISOLATED ranch!

Looks like Feudal Lord Reid is putting the screws to his Democrat Feudal Empire Enablers, such a Stevie H. in order to absolutely protect his unchallenged oppressive power at his Bureau of Feudal Land Management, (BFLM)!

Who knows? Feudal Lord Reid might even ask his bff Speaker Boehner to “offer” Legislation in the House to protect the impending Federal crushing of all opposition to anything Feudal Lord Reid wants to do in Feudal State of Nevada.

Stranger things have happened in Obamanation, and Doormat Republican Speaker Boehner’s impeccable Cave In record is living proof!

After all, Feudal Lord Reid Reid DOES control ALL of the US Senate, so why shouldn’t he have absolute control over his own State of Nevada?

Even his severest critics in the Democrat’s Left Stream Media must see the obvious morality of that simple gesture!?

Since the Democrat Feudal Evil Empire now controls 86 % of the “Sovereign” State of Nevada, and Feudal Evil Empire Enabler Stevie H., (Freshman US Rep., D, Nevada), wants to crush all opposition to Reid’s impending “Something will happen to Rancher Bundy” Jackbooted Federal Oppression, perhaps pro-Liberty Militia protection should be EXPANDED to include Ranchers in other Nevada Counties who try to scratch out a living on land controlled by Feudal Lord Reid’s Bureau of Feudal Land Management?

Yes indeed! The Democrat Party is closing ranks behind Feudal Lord Reid in a marvelous display of Democrat Party Unity!

If ONLY Feudal Lord Reid could convince the Doormat Republican Party to close ranks with him!

No telling what Boehner will demand in the “Deal” he makes with Reid!

Maybe even a joint TV Presser claiming a Dream Bi-Partisan Compromise Grand Bargain?

The unstoppable OBAMANATION OPPRESSION simply MUST continue to get stronger with EVERY “crisis” if the United States of America is EVER going to be Fundamentally changed, or destroyed, which ever comes first!

MOVE ON!
FORWARD!

It’s really very simple: The next President needs to be a person who hates the federal government as much as Obama loves it. This antiquated, slothful, greedy and corrupt government needs drastically downsized and completely reformed. Whoever runs on that blatantly obvious platform wins.

Horsford needs to call fellow Democrat Nagin about getting some schoolbusses up there.

Just curious - what is the total of land held by the government - at market value, might it total over $17.5 trillion?

Ted nails it! Would be nice if someone would now pen legislation to that effect and see where it goes; no better time than the present given public sentiment.

Oh please, if that's true, than the neutering of our kids is complete. When I was young I would've walked right up to them in amazement asking about their cool guns.
