Marxist BLM Seizes New Mexico Ranch Land for a Jumping Mouse
The Independent Sentinel ^ | May 14 2014 | Sara Noble

Posted on 05/14/2014 8:18:23 PM PDT by PoloSec

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 Reid’s 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 won’t 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. That’s it! That’s 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 didn’t go in with guns drawn, they are stealing the land through the courts.

“The Forest Service is coming in and saying, ‘We’re in charge of the water and the water is part of the forest,’” said Sheriff House. “It’s a control issue, and they’re trying to push the rancher out. They’re 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 won’t survive because they can’t 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.

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.

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.

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.

If the precious mouse is really a jumper...can't it jump out of the way of the cattle. This is just more communism of the illegitimate Clown Prince nobama.

Then I would reccomend , in order :
mouse traps ,
claymores ,
and "bouncing bettys" , in that order to cure the problem !!

I thought this was taking place on National Forest Service land not BLM land? Is it some of both?

Move the jumping mice to D.C., I hear that they thrive in that sort of habitat. In fact there’s several on the Wolf Blitzer show right now.

Picture yourself as a poor, helpless jumping mouse, minding your own business. A cow walks over and "PLOP", cuts loose a cowpie that drops right on top of you!(it was an Environmentalist, Democrat, bureaucrat cow, they are full of "cowpies" [family friendly forum here])

Oh the horror!

Oh the agony!

Not even a rodent should have to die that way!

To save these helpless creatures, we must instead cover America's PEOPLE with Environmentalist, Democrat, bureaucrat "cowpies"!

The way to solve the problem is to put out lots and lots of Wafarin and kill off the mice. When they are alll dead and gone, there is no longer a problem

Solution to all of these regulations involving “Endangered Rodents”. (no, it’s NOT “Shoot, Shovel & Shut-up”)

Feral cats!

Now we’ll have a real Range War!

Environmentalists & Bureaucrats vs America’s Cat Lovers!

Talk about the Fur Flying!

(can I have the popcorn concession?)

“Tear down this wall” In this case, cut the fence a thousand times a day. And keep cutting.

It seems to me that cows would increase mice populations. Rodents eat insects and cows definitely increase insect populations. I think the something else is just the arrogant abuse of power. The Fed. gov. seems to be utterly drunk on it now.
