    The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that two militia members from Montana and one from Utah have arrived at Cliven Bundy’s ranch. “We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” Ryan Payne of the West Mountain Rangers told the Review-Journal. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.” Payne said that militias from New Hampshire, Texas and Florida are likely to join and stand with Bundy and stay at his ranch. “They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne told the Review-Journal, adding that hundreds of militia members are expected.

    SALT LAKE CITY — A coalition of conservation groups is hailing a federal judge's ruling Monday to strike down portions of the Richfield Bureau of Land Management plan they said gave deference to off-road vehicles at the expense of the environment. "This landmark decision is a resounding rejection of the BLM’s mismanagement of Utah’s stunning public lands,” said Stephen Bloch, legal director for the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. ... The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance was among seven groups that filed a legal challenge to the Bush-era plans following their adoption in 2008, contending they imperiled pristine landscapes.

    Tennessee’s second poorest county will suffer even more if the federal government buys 120,000 acres of land in that area, near Memphis, all for the stated purpose of wildlife preservation, said that county’s mayor. Lauderdale County Mayor Rod Schuh told Tennessee Watchdog Friday that his county, while poor, relies on farming and agriculture as the primary drivers of its economy. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s plan to expand the Lower Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge, assuming it buys out as many properties as it can, will rob the county of its most valuable commodity, Schuh said.

    Bicycles instead of cars? Dense apartment clusters instead of single homes? Community rituals instead of churches? "Human rights" instead of religious freedom? The UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) which met June 3-14 [1996]in Istanbul, painted an alarming picture of the 21st century community. The American ways-free speech, individualism, travel, and Christianity-are out. A new set of economic, environmental, and social guidelines are in. Citizenship, democracy, and education have been redefined. Handpicked civil leaders will implement UN "laws", bypassing state and national representatives to work directly with the UN. And politically correct "tolerance"-meaning "the rejection of dogmatism and absolutism"...
  • Russia considers biggest population redistribution since Stalin

    Under the plans, which were leaked to the daily Vedomosti newspaper, the majority of Russia's 141 million-strong population would be concentrated in just twenty urban centres rather than sparsely spread out over one fifth of the earth's surface as is now the case. At the moment, ninety per cent of Russia's towns are relatively small with a population of 100,000 people or less, many of them in remote locations. The leaked plan said such places had "no future" and were not worth developing. Instead, it proposed relocating people to twenty giant agglomerations where Russia's main natural resources such as oil...

    The murderous secular humanist religions of Communism and Nazism were spawned by the anti-God/utopian tradition of Revolutionary France. The Black Book of Communism, an 800- page compendium of the crimes of Communist regimes worldwide, graphically details the terror, torture, man-made famine, mass deportations, starvation, and massacres undertaken on behalf of revolutionary utopian ideals. The reality of Communism, which claimed to be an emissary of the Enlightenment, of universal brotherhood, and of happiness for all as envisioned by Gracchus Babeuf, turned out to be not only a sadistic engine for unimaginable evil but also the creator of hells on earth.

    UPPER TOWNSHIP — The Township Committee is trying to determine whether mountain-lion sightings in the area are fact or phantom. Mayor Richard Palombo this week publicly urged residents who have seen a large cat — maybe a mountain lion or a big bobcat — to notify the township's animal-control officer. “At this point, we're making everyone alert about it. The animal-control officer is looking at it if anyone sees an animal,” the mayor said. Liam Hughes, who handles animal control in parts of Atlantic and Cape May counties, said there are no confirmed lion sightings. Nor could anyone find scat...

These treaties and agreements often have noble goals and seem to address a real need within the global community.

W. Bush in 1989. A total of 42,000 acres of state land was donated to the federal government to accomplish plans to grow the park by 109,000 acres – a move necessary to restore the natural flow, habitat and wildlife of the famed River of Grass. “More than fifty years ago, Florida donated land to...

    Wolves are being reintroduced to wildlands to drive people out, intentionally putting human life at risk for the sake of creating a UN biodiversity preserve. Across the nation, particularly in western states, ranchers are feeling the bite of the so-called "wolf recovery" program, which began with reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone National Park in 1995. Stemming from the Endangered Species Act (ESA), this program was followed three years later with the return of Mexican gray wolves in the Southwest, and similar initiatives are underway in the Midwest and Northeast. As the resurgent wolf packs thrive, they are inflicting serious economic damage...

At its first national conference, leaders from dozens of grassroots organizations adopted the Principles of Freedom, based on the founding documents of the United States. At its second national conference, the grassroots leaders launched an initiative to develop a more comprehensive document which sets forth very specific policy recommendations to advance the principles of freedom in the 21st century, as an alternative to the U.N.'s...

Ordinary working men, mostly immigrants, they lived in frontier logging camps inventing stories and folk heroes in order to pass the long winter nights. Paul and his blue ox, Babe, were part of the legend. Pre-PC folk heroes like Paul and Babe captured the imagination of America's grade-school children. But that was...

During the Clinton-Gore era, agencies of our federal government were infiltrated by former executives and operatives from some of our most extreme environmental organizations. Bruce Babbitt, former head of the League of Conservation Voters, took control of the Department of Interior, and promptly hired Reed F. Noss as a special consultant.

The three maps show Florida in 1992 as 90-percent privately owned, and only 10-percent owned by government (represented in green). When the transformation is complete, 90-percent will be owned by the government, with only 10-percent remaining in private hands. The center map shows what the Wildlands Project expected the government/private land distribution to be in 2002. They were pretty accurate in their projections. If the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan is imposed,...

What are conservation objectives? Reed Noss, author of "The Wildlands Project," says "... the collective needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs and desires of humans."

The immediate target is the CERP – the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. The bigger target is The Wildlands Project, but the real target is the basis on which land-use management regulations are formulated. Land-management policy, once the exclusive domain of local elected officials, has been hijacked by environmental ideologues who have devised a new "collaborative" decision process to advance their conservation objectives, leaving the regulated community with no one...
