The government is robbing ranchers of their livelihood again, only this time the ranchers have broken no laws.
The federal government the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) now under the leadership of Harry Reids former top aide closed down access to New Mexico ranchers land for the nonsensical reason that it was to protect the New Mexico Meadow Jumping Mouse.
Rancher Kit Laney, and a number of New Mexico Ranchers are all locked in a vicious battle with the federal government over land that the Feds are now claiming ownership of, land the Laney family has claims to going all the way back to 1883.
The government placed gates blocking his cattles access to a creek in the Lincoln National Forest. About 20 local ranchers were also affected, all of whom have watering rights to the creek and have been using the land for decades.
Otero County, New Mexico officials are fighting back. They told the Bureau of Land Management to remove the gates. All BLM has done is cut a ten foot opening in the fence as if the cattle can find their way through an opening that size.
US Fish and Wildlife declared the Jumping Mouse endangered last year and has been staking out its territory, much of which is used by ranchers or owned privately. That wont stop the BLM.
Environmentalists, undoubtedly prompted by the government, asked that the mouse be protected in areas in New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. An April 8 announcement in the Federal Register stated that they planned to make this worthless mouse an endangered species. It will be done by June 2014.
The mouse hibernates for 9 months out of the year and jumps high. Thats it! Thats its contribution to our nation.
Unlike the Cliven Bundy situation, the ranchers own the rights to the water under New Mexico law, but the creek is within the federally owned forest. The ranchers have broken no laws.
The BLM got a little smarter this time. They didnt go in with guns drawn, they are stealing the land through the courts.
The Forest Service is coming in and saying, Were in charge of the water and the water is part of the forest, said Sheriff House. Its a control issue, and theyre trying to push the rancher out. Theyre using every excuse in the book. One area is a riparian area. One area is critical habitat. One area might be for endangered species.
The ranchers are very concerned that the cattle wont survive because they cant get to the water.
Some are suggesting that Marxist John Podesta is behind these land grabs.
Either the mouse cute or some crony or doner will benefit from this taking. Follow the money.
Environmental clash- buy local foods vs save the rat...
Guess we’ll all be getting all our food shipped in from overseas.
LOL! Where do these envirobozos come up with this crap? The New Mexico Meadow Jumping Mouse? LOL! Are you kidding me? It’s a rodent. A rat. A rat is a rat. You can give them all of the artsy fartsy intellectual type names you want. They’re still a rat. Rats are a dime a dozen on this planet. Fools.
Calling all Feudal Lord Reid’s Raiders! Unless your last name is Koch, of course.
Hmmmm, mice and cattle. Seems to me that mice are attracted to cattle, especially cattle feed. This is why dairy farmers all have cats, to control the otherwise exploding mouse populations.
This mouse is being gifted with 193 miles of prime riverfront property. In an area that has a lack of available water. Ninety nine percent of the 193 miles of river the mouse does not and never will use, and of the one percent will use only 3 months out of the year when it’s awake, and this fact is even admitted in the Federal Register.
Mice are known hanta virus carriers. The jumping field mouse territory extends from the artic circle to the atlantic to central America. It is about as endangered as horseflies are.
So rather than haggle & argue in some federal court that will rule against them anyway, why don't the ranchers & Otero County simply go in with their tractors and rip out the remaining gates? It is long past overdue, for county & state conservative elected officials to simply ignore federal court rulings that are designed to steal our freedoms away from us. It is also long past time for the tree of liberty to be watered with the blood of patriots and that of tyrants.
You know my heart tells me I hope your wrong.
But my mind tells you probably aren’t.
In no universe are desert mice endangered by cattle.
I’d go a step further and erect some makeshift gallows from the gates, every few 100 yards or so. Just sayin..
It’s not about mice or cattle anyway.
It’s about MONEY and POWER.
Take the time to listen to this audio it will explain what is going on with the BLM and the EPA.
Then I would reccomend , in order :
mouse traps ,
and "bouncing bettys" , in that order to cure the problem !!
agenda 21 land grab continues. under any excuses necessary.
I thought this was taking place on National Forest Service land not BLM land? Is it some of both?
How is it that cows effect mice?
I really dont understand...There must be something else.
