Original Post: Mastering One’s Domain.
I own a ton of domain names. Most of them I’ll never use. I bought them–and pay for them–because I don’t want anyone else to have them. Many contain “teabaggers.” […]
Just one, apparently. Ted Cruz. IJR just reported the Texas Senator was named the Subcommittee Chair on Science, Space and Competitiveness. And Cruz’s rep as a “denier of climate change” and a “budget hawk” are making the left more than a little itchy. Social media is exploding with derogatory remarks. No surprise.
Additionally, Cruz had some comments, in Huff Post, on Romney’s eventual third try at the Oval Office.
Original Post: Boehner’s Purge.
You might have noticed that my report on the Speaker election process lacked enthusiasm. Now you know why. Boehner is moving quickly to purge conservatives from all committees of meaning. He has vowed to cooperate with the White House and Democrats. He has vowed never to shut down government again, no matter how evil, onerous, … Continue reading Boehner’s Purge
While it was a long shot, and despite blowing up the capitol switchboard, John Boehner is once again elected as Speaker of the House. There are gonna be a lot of ticked off conservatives back home in the districts, just sayin’.
Here’s the list of 25 brave dissenters as reported by the Washington Post:
What are you doing right now? Yeah, you! Besides reading this post, what are you doing right now? What other windows do you have open on your computer? What television shows are you watching and who have you talked to on the phone, in the last hour, day? Where did you drive to, today? What food did you buy at the grocery store and what medications do you take? Do you order them online, pay for them by credit card phone apps, claim them on your insurance? Would you be doing all that, if you knew you were being watched? If someone else had access to your movements, habits, private moments, would you still do them? That’s a question we all must ask ourselves, as BIG BROTHER has become a reality, and can no longer be dismissed or ignored.
By now, most folks know the NSA has been collecting and storing your cell phone activity, but, as far as we know, they aren’t listening to the content of our calls. Well, the FBI has taken that a step farther, and while there some are questioning, there doesn’t seem to be much outrage over it.
ARS Technia reported the FBI is disregarding a need to obtain warrants in deploying cell-site simulators in public. These cell-site simulators, otherwise known as stingrays, can capture the identity and locations of your cell phone as well as intercept texts and calls. Really! That sounds like content capture to me.
So, who’s asking questions? Democrat, Patrick Leahey, and Republican, Chuck Grassley, who decided to drop a line . . . Read the rest of the post on Three Percenter Nation.
As Republicans robustly regained the senate, in a devastating Democrat bloodletting at the polls, in the 2014 elections, conservatives pull together to take back the House, from the progressive, establishment Republican Party. John Boehner is being challenged for his Speakership and Tea Party conservatives and constitutionalists are calling for action, for to you to make your voices heard.

The 9 percent who belong to the oligarchical political class hate the rest of us—except when they’re eating from our tables like rabid Vietnamese Potbelly Pigs. The establishment’s latest target: Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Fox’s Bret Baier asked Senator Cruz about critics like George Will and Charles Krauthammer who say Cruz doesn’t understand Washington’s rules: Congressional politics is a team […]

And so is almost 3 million surrounding acres of land, in southern Nevada.
You just new the BLM wouldn’t go away quietly after they turned tail last spring and left the site of the Bundy Ranch standoff. On October 10, 2014 the Federal Registry identified most of southern Nevada Areas of Critical Environmental Concern. (ACEC) It seems the endangered desert turtle defense has risen from the dead.
In this urgent message from Carol Bundy, she outlines the steps being taken against the Bundy family and the other land owners in Nevada. Makes you kind of wonder what plans Harry Reid has for all that prime ranching real estate.
FEDS RETALIATE AGAINST THE BUNDY RANCH AND THE SOUTHERN NEVADA PEOPLE
On Friday October 10th, 2014 a Notice from the federal registry reveals that the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people.
Federal Register / Vol. 79, No.197 Notice, outlines plans to make the Bundy ranch and most of the rest of Southern Nevada, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). 90 days from October 10th, 2014 these proposals will become federal law without consent from the Nevada State legislatures or the people of Southern Nevada.
Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) are human restricted management areas. ACECs have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and the resources.
As proposed, nearly 3 million acres in Southern Nevada will be locked away from the people. This includes most uses on the land (recreational, agricultural or otherwise).
Listed below are just a few of the outlined restriction that come with ACECs:
· Closed Roads
· Excluded Trails
· Closed to Camping
· Closed to Recreational Vehicles
· Closed to Motorized Travel
· Closed to Livestock Grazing
· Restricted Human Hiking
· Restricted Horseback Riding
· Exclude Group Recreations
· Closed to Mineral Development
· Closed to Water Access
· Closed to Hunting / Target Shooting
The Southern Nevada people soon will have less access to their lands than any other people in the history of this country.
There are 33 new Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) proposed to cover Southern Nevada totaling 1,739,795 acres. 12 of the 22 existing ACECs are also proposed to be expanded. (See List Below) The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) filed this lists on October 1st.

This is a direct assault on the State of Nevada. It is also a deliberate retaliation against the people for standing against the horrific action of several federal agencies at the Bundy ranch.
The boldness of the federal government’s timing and action on these matters are astonishing. They are again making a clear case that they are willing to use federal power to punish the local people. Harry Reid’s declaration “This is not over” is proving to be uncharacteristically accurate.
Before the Bundy ranch standoff, there were approximately 1 million acres of ACECs in Southern Nevada. Now after the Bundy standoff, the BLM is proposing an additional 1.8 Million acres (a 280% increase) all of which just happens to be in Southern Nevada.
Although this is not proof, anybody with a little intelligence can see that Harry Reid and the BLM are not protecting the environment; they are punishing their enemies.
How is it that all newly proposed critical environmental land in the Untied States just happens to reside within miles of the Bundy ranch? Is the land in Southern Nevada so different/dangerous/special/delicate and important?
From near the beginning of history, tyrannical men have sought to oppress through the control of land and resources, “Control the land and resources, and you have the power to control the people”. There is a direct correlation to land and resources with power and wealth. All major powers in world history have gained their power & wealth by conquering the land and controlling the resources.
It is self-evident that certain men within our government understand this and have implemented these age-old tactics upon the people of this country. For decades they have used government to gain power & wealth for themselves by controlling the land and resources.
Our founding fathers understood this nature, they drafted the Constitution to protect us from the despotic men that history is so full of. They limited the powers of government by outlining what lands the federal government can control and by separating the powers they hold. Their intent was to quickly dispose the land and resources to the local people, where it is most safe.

Under federal rule, the people that live on or near the land have no say to what happens in their own backyards. They have no republic form of government. The decisions are all made by appointed representatives from Washington D.C. These representatives have no responsibility to the people and there is no practical legal way to hold them accountable. In direct violation of the U.S. Constitution federal agencies use the lands as their own and suppress the rightful stewards.
At the moment of Statehood land inside the new State is no longer U.S. Territory, and no longer does U.S. Congress or any of the federal agencies have authority to dispose of the land or make any rules or regulations respecting to it. At Statehood it becomes the right and duty of the people of the State to dispose of and regulate all the lands within the boarders of that State. This is called a republic form of government, for the people, by the people.
The incident at the Bundy ranch indicates that people are beginning to question the legitimacy of federally control lands within their State. It also proves that the people have the courage to stand against despotic government actions. The purpose of the federal government is to protect and uphold the rights of the people, not to profit from the spoils in taking their lands and resources away.
The recent action of the BLM in creating new federal code (ACECs) to expand their control and power by restricting the people further from their lands is a continuation of illegally controlling land with-in a State.
SEE GRAPH BELOW
We call upon our County and State representatives to take courage and end the unconstitutional federal control of land and resources within the State. The legal and rightful control of the land belongs to the local people. The land within the State must be returned to people in a republic form of government. It is time for the State to dispose of the land to the people, open the land up for useful purposes, and protect the preemptive property rights of the people.
Lest there be any confusion regarding how these new federal rules impact the Bundy family, we will continue ranching as our family has done in the Southern Nevada area for over 137 years. We intend to use our preemptive property rights of grazing and water, the rights that Nevada State law both recognizes and is charged to protect.
We are not intimidated by the past action of the federal government, nor will we yield to their future attempt to subdue the State or the people. We refuse to submit to unconstitutional codes and regulation that dismantle Statehood and deprived our American neighbors and ourselves of the unalienable right so many of our kinsmen suffered and died for.
The Bundy Family

The next ninety days will no doubt be frought with drama, intrigue and environmental sensationalism.
. . . or more?
In a drive-by appearance, at my local Pachyderm club, Ann Wagner stopped in to campaign for her second term, to a roomfull of faithful Republicans and said all the right things. “When Republicans take the Senate, we will see a turn around Obamacare, the EPA, yada, yada.” All points well received.
Campaign promises are kind of the focal point, today, as most conservatives hope to see a Republican Senate takeover. Does a Senate take over mean that Republicans will at least work to undo the damage of the last 6 years? And, in Ann’s case, will there be enough time?
Here, on her website, is a press release of her support of Congressional term limits and screen shots, just incase the site gets scrubbed in 2018.
The reason for my point is: when I asked the Congresswoman if she signed such a pledge, she denied it and emphatically and enthusiastically delcaired she will continue to run for her seat. While she has two terms left before she is in conflict with her 2012 promises, memories seem to be fogging over, in only 2 years. Stay tuned.
