Obama Seizes Area Near Bundy Ranch In Massive Last Minute Land Grab

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Alex Thomas via Intellihub.com,

With a stroke of the pen President Obama has unilaterally declared vast swaths of land in Utah and Nevada as two new national monuments, thus putting them under control of the federal government.

Startlingly, the area in Nevada includes the site of the infamous Bundy Ranch standoff as well as land very close to the Bundy Ranch itself. With this move Obama has possibly triggered another armed standoff while also heading off any moves set to be made by incoming president Donald Trump.

A “fact sheet” put out by the White House reads:

Today, President Obama will designate two new national monuments, protecting sacred sites, spectacular scenery, and important natural and cultural resources in the desert landscapes of southeastern Utah and southern Nevada. The creation of the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah and the Gold Butte National Monument in Nevada follow years of robust public input from tribes, local elected officials, and diverse stakeholders, and draws from legislation introduced in Congress.


In addition to protecting more land and water than any Administration in history, President Obama has taken unprecedented steps to elevate the voices of Native peoples in the management of our natural resources.  Today’s actions build on this important work, and further demonstrate the President’s commitment to protecting sacred sites and our land, water and wildlife for future generations.





Gold Butte National Monument


Located in Clark County, Nevada just northeast of the outskirts of Las Vegas, the Gold Butte National Monument spans nearly 300,000 acres and will protect significant cultural resources, important geological formations, and vital plant and wildlife habitat. The monument will provide critical protections for important Native American historical sites, as well as areas that are currently used for traditional purposes by tribes. Notably, the area includes abundant rock art, archeological artifacts, and rare fossils, including recently discovered dinosaur tracks dating back hundreds of millions of years. In recent years these resources have faced increasing damage from threats such as deliberate destruction and vandalism, and today’s designation will help ensure that these cultural and archaeological treasures are better protected.


The monument will serve as an important connection between already protected lands, including Lake Mead Recreation Area and the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument across the Arizona border, protecting key wildlife corridors for large mammals such as desert bighorn sheep and mountain lions, and vital habitat for the threatened Mojave desert tortoise. Additionally, the monument will protect important historic resources. Structures that detail western ranching heritage can still be found in the Gold Butte area, as well as an early twentieth-century abandoned mining town and sites associated with Spanish explorers from the late eighteenth century.


Today’s action follows decades of local support from tribes, local stakeholders and conservationists, and draws from legislation that was first introduced in 2008.

Right now it is extremely difficult to confirm exactly how much of the land in and around the Bundy Ranch is now a national monument but a map put out by the Las Vegas Review seems to line up directly with the Bundy grazing allotment.

“Obama just designated the Bundy Ranch a national monument”

Vocativ is reporting that multiple individuals involved with the original Bundy standoff have already made it clear that they plan to stand up to this latest federal tyranny.

“Members of the self-styled militias that swarmed to the aid of Cliven Bundy outside of Las Vegas in 2014 — and who later joined the rancher’s sons to seize a federal wildlife refuge in rural Oregon — said they were readying for another showdown. Obama’s move on Wednesday to protect 300,000 acres of federal land around Gold Butte, close to the Bundy ranch, comes as two dozen people await trials for their roles in the Nevada and Oregon standoffs, which emboldened right-wing militants across America and became a powerful symbol of anti-government sentiment,” read the report.


“Get your gear ready,” wrote Jon Ritzheimer, one of the men who used handguns and assault rifles to hole up in Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for 41 days last year. “Obama just designated the Bundy Ranch a national monument.”


“Others with ties to patriot groups and militia movements online responded with a bit more force. “Locked and loaded ready to go,” wrote Chris Border, a member of the Cliven Bundy’s Army! Facebook group, which boasts more than 2,000 members. “Tired of this crap and time to do something.”

One has to wonder what exactly are the reasons for this new land grab by President Obama in the last days of his presidency. It’s extremely hard to imagine that it is not at least partially connected to the Bundy’s and the standoffs in both Nevada and Oregon.

More importantly, this area may actually include land that has documented precious metals throughout it as detailed in the video report below.

More information as to the exact implications of this massive land grab are sure to be released in the coming days and will be covered here extensively.

Note: An interesting discussion about the implications surrounding Obama’s new land grab was also recently released by patriots in the area, which can be found in the video below.

As if he didn't disrupt enough in eight years, he's going to screw things up as much as possible to slow down President Trump.

Ahh, the CIA mystery man known today as Barack Obama, the president with no past, a fake birth Certificate (Thanks Sheriff Joe) a fake Social Security Number, Strikes again at the heart of this nation. Globalist Scum!

"The designation of Gold Butte area could lead to another standoff with furious local land owners and patriots across country..."


A real patriot would not fall for this obvious tactic to incite the populus.......I hope no one is dumb enough to take the bait.

There will never be another black president.

That is how much of a disaster this "man" has been.

Trump won't have to drive a bulldozer through his legacy, because the memory of the bitter twisted cunt in his last days of office throwing all the toys out of his pram, trying to shackle Trump with EO's and a foreign policy in tatters will be the abiding ones.

Oblivio building up to a crescendo of douche-baggery. But wait! he has 21 more days to go!!!!!

Invasion 2017 on deck!!!!! Who will die for him? NATO stooges I guess?

They will run Cory Booker because he is another neoliberal with a black face, and they will give Tulsi the Bernie treatment to nominate him.

The Magik Negro would have been a better President is he spent every minute of his tenure at the golf course. It does not even matter if the bill from this was increased to $200 million of taxpayer money either. At least when he is putting he is too absorbed in himself to do anything else.

The real moments of damage are when he is back in offfice. Every second he is not putting around he blows millions to billions of dollars on his fucking retarted decisions. Every time he speaks or writes off on anything in his actual job he makes life more miserable for everyone.

Obama is not the droid you're looking for. The man is a puppet of those with much greater powers. He answers, "Yes, Master," to them.

He won't, but I wouldn't be surprised if he pardoned every black prisoner in the United States just to cause chaos on the way out.

Like all of his ill conceived, short sighted plans, this too is easily circumvented. Gee, Trump's new intelligence directors find Obama real birth certificate from Kenya. Everything he did is null and void, the end.

The overreach and imperial powers are all well and good until you're on the receiving end. This is why in the past changing administrations have mostly played nice with each other. Don't piss off the guy coming in because he could go after you for your crimes. You would think this would be common sense....

Let him have his little girly tantrum, Trump has a lot more than a phone and a pen. He has the backing of the majority who are sick to death of proglodyte meddling. MAGA!

proglodyte  = regressive progressive. Nice word!

But if he had run, he could have beaten Donald!




Even blacks and Hispanics are fed up with Sotero Hussein now they realize he's a horse's ass. Of course, Jews also realize he hates them even more with his stabbing their Israel in the back despite them lying for him for 8 years.

What a freaking egomaniac!

Even tho one crooked traitor writes this horse shit up, the willing minions that greedily enforce it up-to killing fellow Americans (rip Lavoy) is the troubling equation,

spastic_colon's picture

Lets see if trump can undo many of these scorched earth tactics by obummer.........once he is in the "patriots" may have the backing to deal with the "willing minions" separately.

flaminratzazz's picture

as long as there is the gov there is and will be willing minions. it is simple.. you hang a badge off of them, pay them more than they are worth, and they see you as the enemy on command.

same as it ever was

and they always try to pull shit on their way out the door. Remember what happened when W. was leaving? TBTF, TARP. Let's see what else O. tries to do before he's done.

This story is a nothing burger.  Contrary to what the article implies this new Monumant was already federally managed land.  All the presidents for a long time have been pulling this shit at the end of their terms by abusing the Antiquities Act.  Just another layer of bureaucracy.

WillyGroper's picture

making your intent publicized to incite civil war is hardly a nothing burger.

or how a constitutional "scholar" once again subverted the constitution knowing full well the terms for federal lands which are extraordinarily limited as per founding fathers.

All this land was stolen from the original "First Nation" custodians so now the thieves are fighting each other.

What a total piece of fucking shit this fucker Soetero is.

...but anyone with an I.Q. north of 85 knows it.

...and anyone that doesn't, is also a fucking piece of shit.

Just a note, Sheriff Joe's material simply supports the original finding that what the white house released as the "birth certificate" was BOGUS. It's really quite simple if you understand graphic arts software. The white house sent what was supposed to be a PDF scan of a paper document. Only problem is "compositional elements" of this "scan" were contained in "layers".

If you scan a document, you get 1 layer. You get a single-layer image.  When we (like thousands of people around the world) opened this PDF in graphic sofware we saw that the image consisted of  multiple layers AND these layers contained COMPOSITIONAL ELEMENTS OF THE IMAGE.

There is only one way to get this result from a scanned image: it was CREATED USING GRAPHIC SOFTWARE.

Sheriff Joe's findings support this conslusion and it demonstrates the actual SOURCE MATERIAL from which this image was made. At this point the forensic case is OVERWHELMING.

Sadly none of this will see it's day in court.

And the woman who handled this died in a plane crash coming into Molokai here in Hawaii. She was the only fatality in the accident. Like the Clinton's, just another coincidence that someone who knows something important dies mysteriously.

musimann's picture

This woman was a member of some weird muslim cult that the Obama mama was involved in and some still think Obongo is. The Subud cult from Indonesia. It looks like she was brought in to the position director of health just before it all hit the fan and covered up by her. and now shes dead.

musimann's picture

That is correct. There is an argument they used that said the scanner software used created the layers. I however have never seen that. It was a very weak argument. It was most likely an error in photoshop where they forgot to flatten the image when they were done modifying it. When you flatten an image it removes the layers. Or it could have been sabotage from within or maybe the Russians hacked it.

Obama Designates National Monument in Maine, to Dismay of Some




Senator Angus King, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, said that commitments from the administration persuaded him that “the benefits of the designation will far outweigh any detriment.” He said the monument could coexist with the wood and paper industry, “and will provide much-needed diversity to the region’s economy.”

But Senator Susan Collins, a Republican, said Mr. Obama should not have acted on his own, “given the objection lodged by the Maine Legislature, the lack of consensus among Mainers who live in the area, and the absence of congressional approval.”

The ambush and cowardly murder of LaVoy Finicum exemplifies what the US gov, and Barkey in particular, has become.

I can't stand these cocksuckers. The next few weeks are gonna be really something. I expect the Soros goons to be at the inauguration raising hell under protection of US gov jackboots.

boattrash's picture

Yep, Trump needs to avoid convertibles, parades, and keep his head down. Unfortunately, that is not in his personal make-up.

chunga's picture

Trump moving the inauguration out of DC would be a stroke of genius that would leave the "establishment" dumbfounded.

Just like the offshore wind leases sold to foreign interests the last couple of weeks.


Fishermen: not so fast with wind farm



The Fisheries Survival Fund, which represents the majority of the U.S. Atlantic scallop industry, claims the site picked for the farm is on documented fishing grounds for both commercially important species. It claims the wind turbines would shut fishermen out.

The group is the lead plaintiff in a federal lawsuit filed against the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and Sally Jewell, the secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior.  The BOEM has jurisdiction over the sea floor.

Other plaintiffs include the Garden State Seafood Association, the Fishermen’s Dock Co-Operative in Point Pleasant Beach and the Borough of Barnegat Light.

Let's not forget that Harry Reid is involved in this as a senator from Nevada.
