Skip to comments.Drakes Bay oyster farm denied Supreme Court hearing
Posted on 07/01/2014 11:15:24 AM PDT by MeshugeMikey
Oyster farmer Kevin Lunny's reaction to what looked to others like the last legal gasp of his operation at Point Reyes National Seashore punched right to the point: "It's not over until the last oyster is shucked."
"This is a disappointing decision, but it's not really a setback," Lunny said of the U.S. Supreme Court's refusal Monday to hear an appeal of a federal order that would shut down his Drakes Bay Oyster Co. "This ruling only gives us the strength and incentive to fight harder. This is not just about oyster farmers - this issue affects farmers and ranchers on federal lands throughout the nation."

"offshore land" ?
More gov BS. How the hell is oyster raising a problem now. I wonder when they will try to close those dairy farms up in Inverness area given most have been in operation since before the war between the states.
That family has been there longer than any of the carpetbagging NE politicos in the state who claim ‘Green’ while they pollute the airwaves with their bogus science crap.
The price of oysters will skyrocket.. for some..
Yup, Washington DC looking out for you.
It’s a harbor seal breeding area is the claim. The family has had a dairy farm on that neck of the woods for years. They only recently took on the oyster farm assuming they could at least get a 10 year extension.. but now.. Salazar screwed them blue and them some. Even DiChiFi has tried to blow thru blockades of regs.. but..
sometimes its easier to shuck an oyster than a politician’s or greenie’s mind.
Seems to me that Salazar came to exactly the OPPOSITE conclusion that Congress authorized in 2009. But then, that's what happens when you put liberals in charge of anything.
Were the farm owned by a black, female, lesbian, Wiccan, the permit would arrive by Unicorn Chariot with the Won hand delivering the document.
Simple solution, if any of the hacks care to pull their head out and realize they are not royalty, but public servants...
Find a piece of “off-shore land” that they will trade to Drake’s for them gracefully vacating.
Drakes stays in business, they get their blessed “wilderness”, and it doesn’t happen again in 10 years or 40 years...unless of course, and this is very likely, the hacks decide they will just take the “off-shore land” away from them.
Other than the federal entities indicated in the Constitution’s Clause 17 of Section 8 of Article I, or land controlled under the eminent domain aspect of the 5th Amendment, the states have never delegated to the feds, expressly via the Constitution, the specific power to have exclusive legislative control over “offshore land” as freeper Izzy Dunne had questoned.
So what am I overlooking?
Patriots and former Obama supporters need to exercise their voting muscle in the 2014 eletions to win 2/3 conservative majority control of the Senate so that Congress can impeach lazy justices off of the bench.
Your response just triggered a thought that has been lingering in my old mind.
I wonder how many $’s the competitors to Drakes Bay Oster Farm have contributed to the rats and the green eco terrorists.
This goes back to my old Cui Bono training, who benefits from an action like this?
Competitors will and those getting money from competitors.

“More gov BS. How the hell is oyster raising a problem now. I wonder when they will try to close those dairy farms up in Inverness area given most have been in operation since before the war between the states.”
The enviro Eco Terrorists and PETA people have had the dairy farmers in their cross hairs for decades.
The producers of so called artificial milk will be donating money to the Green Eco Terrorists and the PETA clowns to close down the evil dairies.
“offshore land” a strange twist of the language that eh?
the bad “science” the land grabbers tried to use as an excuse to run the oyster farm off....is well known and yet..utterly ignored
Harry Reid wants the land???? your guess is as good as mine.
when someone finds that they can sell them to developers??
such science” was in play here...
from the huff and puff post of all places:
Good science should have played a key role in the Drakes Bay debacle, and open community discussion should have as well. But we didn’t get good science. Instead, the National Park Service, the Department of the Interior (DoI), and some local environmental supporters (with whom I often have strong common cause) manipulated, misreported and misrepresented science in their desire to support expanded wilderness.
the “environmentalists” the gubment hired..fabricated all sorts of BAD DATA to get thire way in court...and that hasnt been addressed as yet...
They probably worked closely with the same consultants that NOAA or as I like to call it, the NOWAAY (butcher the numbers!) mob did.
I wish I could remember the details but the easy readers digest version is that facts the enviros touted were all 100 percent dead wrong..
Even the liberals around here in Marin...knew it
I guess liberals would rather pay extra for NE oysters than support your local farmers and ranchers.
It leaves more jobs for illegals here locally or sumthin’ , in their warped little minds.
It all about CONTROL...ultimate control...ABSOLUTE CONTROL.
Neither Drakes Bay nor the Oysters nore the method of harvest have changed in the hundred years the farms been there!
ONLY the seething lust for absolute control has vastly enlarged itself.
spmeone MAY want the surrounding LAND....for OTHER commercial purposes....just like that chunk of ranch land in NEVADA
Manure runoff rings a bell here,, and it ain’t purty one.. As I recall that issue was dealt with..
It hasn’t hurt we’re in the middle of a drought, or we could be in a real soupy situation had that not been addresses a long time..
I seriously doubt harbor seals are known for their grooming habits , mating season especially which is when they would have frequented that area.
Ever feel like an endangered species?
MoonBeam by a landslide!
Put it in the bank.
Hardworking business owners are screwed inperpetuity.
The GOldarn State slips slowly into the socialists sunset.
Obama ships even more in to seal fate..
Some folks would say, who cares about this issue.. It’s about oysters! OYsters!
NO, it’s about a vibrant economy,
Unfettered from a regulatory stranglehold
That we all end up paying for
And no one benefits
A zero sum game
You vant Oysters? You VIll Comply wif Ze Oysters Board Rulinks.!!!
SOmethings up there and it aint the oysters
I’d almost welcome an honest tyranny......
