The 11 western states with sagebrush-steppe habitat and sage grouse are: Oregon, Washington, California (northern), Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, North and South Dakota.
Just like saving the salmon land has been purchased, landowners have committed their development rights and projects planned. Government and non-government organizations have spent taxpayer money protecting these species.
BLM is at it again planning a prescribed burn in order to help the sage grouse habitat.Even in BLM’s best efforts to control the land and help habitat of any species, they know not what they do. Th efforts that they make to help seems to really go side ways or is it part of the agenda to remove people from the land or get people(landowners out of someones way.
In Oregon there was a rancher who did not want to sell their ranch to BLM so BLM created a condition that would potentially give them what they want. BLM did some prescribed burns. This forced the Hammond ranch to take steps to protect themselves and their property. The result of that was Mr Hammond and his son were thrown in federal prison and labeled domestic terrorists. These are regular everyday working American people making a living and living the lifestyle they love. Because the fight had gone on for more than 20 years and BLM wasn’t winning. They approached the Hammonds to purchase the property the Hammonds said NO. The “international obligation”created a crisis for BLM and the political party involved.( see my post on Uranium connection https://wordpress.com/post/losingamericanland.com/27485 https://wordpress.com/post/losingamericanland.com/27763 ). By the way the Hammonds were fighting a grazing right issue as well. So when this was discovered by other ranchers dealing with the same issue. Many of these ranchers came together to support the Hammonds and educate the community on the unlawful methods BLM are doing. The BLM has no constitution right to own land and create laws regarding the lands.
At this time point we get the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The supposed federal refuge was and is the people’s land so the people who occupied the refuge, were and are, in their constitutional right to do so. The wave of understanding in the state of Oregon was growing very fast. The real constitution was being taught to the communities and the opposition to the BLM was growing. Then the FBI was brought in. At this point the FBI and BLM had to do something to stop the opposition and turn the people’s support back. They did do something very dramatic and Lavoy Finicum, a man people loved and respected, lost his life. Please peruse the following link to see the forensic videos and see the drastic measures the government officials went to stop the movement. https://thementalmilitia.net/2017/03/28/forensic-analysis-murder-lavoy-finicum-2nd-page/
If you follow the money and the mitigation plans of businesses within 100 miles of lands in question you will find out why the BLM is making decisions to do stupid things that to most people make no sense. Quite often there will be a political reason behind it. And the Agenda will be moving forward. This agenda could be just as simple as getting land owners backed into a corner that will force them to sell their land. To a degree, the BLM, won. How you say well since Mr Hammond was imprisoned, the BLM forced the Hammonds to sign a “first right of refusal”. This means that if for any reason the Hammonds decide to sell their ranch the BLM gets first crack at it.
The agenda I am talking about through all of this is the UN Agenda.
The BLM wants to burn 30,600 acres of sagebrush in southwest Montana. (48 square miles) Yes Montana has a lot of wide open space but I would venture to say that there are some prime ranches inside this boundary that BLM would love to have or some politician would love to have for some money-making scheme or just simply the UN would like to clear the land and get rid of the ranchers in order to make the land “sustainable”.
The problem with this kind habitat salvation, a prescribe burn, is that the sage grouse will be devastated. It will take years for the land to be habitable for the sage grouse. Just like salmon recovery, these organizations cannot have a successful plan. They cannot have a species return quickly in high numbers. If the species starts returning in high numbers the organization that is doing the projects, will have their budgets cut. All the high paying jobs that worked on the habitat acquisition and monitoring will be reduced greatly and the project will be a success. BLM cannot have that happen.
All government organizations that receive our tax dollars are under the rule of “use it or lose it” So of course they have to make sure that the project continues with no success.
People are extremely naive if they think that this kinda of thing does not happen with our government.
So in conclusion a prescribe burn in southwest Montana is a really, really bad idea. People have lost their freedom and their live because of prescribe burns by BLM.
