Below is an important article. I haven’t had time to vet everything, nor have I had the time to do the important work and beging to look at fed level cooperative/partnership agreements between the DNR and the Dept of Conservation here in Missouri. There could also be Memorandums of Understanding or MOU’s- and let me remind you of special form 424F- which basically ties every fed level agency to all other fed level agencies and obligates them to support each agencies initiatives and guidelines. It’s basically contagious contracting, and no one that owns any property can be certain they will not be affected by this.
Please feel free to begin researching this and share your results with us.

At the heart of a free and prosperous society is the principle of private property ownership. Without private property, the centralization and corrupting influence of power grows, as the freedom of the individual dissipates. Democratic socialism is a great example of the dissolution of private property, under which, the demands of the majority override those of the individual. The majority claims they have a “right” to the goods and services (property) of individuals and businesses. They then use the government as a vehicle of force to conscript property and take it.
It is much more liberating and moral to contract with others freely and compensate one another, making agreements mutually. It is better to earn one’s own keep, be responsible for personal decisions, and be respectful of each other’s personal property. The tenet of private property follows the principles of natural law, establishing boundaries so one party cannot harm or take from another.
When property is owned by the state, it is referred to as public property. Public property serves important purposes in today’s society; however, it can also be used to serve the interests of the powerful. When property is federalized and concentrated into the hands of the powerful, the individual ambitions of the people become stifled. When property is federalized and used for monopolistic purposes, individuals are herded and turned into serfs who must do as they are told. When property is concentrated into the control of powerful central planners, they decide what they think is best for everyone.
Today, an overwhelming amount of property in the Western United States is now owned and mismanaged by the federal government of the U.S., and is being used for international and secretive purposes (e.g. United Nations global sustainability programs, and large scale mining operations). According to statistics from TaxFoundation.org, the federal government now owns more than half of the land in the states of Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Idaho. The federal government owns over a third of the land in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming and California. This is not good use of public property. This is power unchecked – a federal government accountable to no one.
Federal government finding new ways to take over property
Federal government bureaucracies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are being used as armies to intimidate and bully private property owners into complying with their demands. The EPA created the term, “Waters of the United States” to declare any rainwater that sinks into the ground as being connected to “navigable waters.” In this way, the EPA can dictate what individuals do with their private property, by declaring someone’s property a wetland, owned and overseen by the EPA. Private property owners are bullied into paying fines or giving up their property to the federal government through this tactic.
The BLM uses the same tactics to bully ranchers into paying grazing fees when their cattle roam freely and feed on the wild grasses of adjacent BLM land. This is what spurred the protests at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. The armed BLM came to confiscate Bundy’s cattle, but backed down when the Bundys and other patriots defended their personal property.
When the Hammond family of Oregon attempted to save their cattle’s winter feed by starting back fires on their property, the flames inadvertently moved onto adjoining BLM land. Dwight and Steven Hammond now await a five year federal prison sentence because the BLM accused them of destroying federal property. These cases show that the power of the BLM is ridiculously out of control, unreasonable and dangerous. This case is the reason why there was a protest at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge inOregon. The protesters had every right to assemble peaceably, defend themselves, and speak their mind about government abuses, but the FBI arrived on the scene in paramilitary fashion, unjustly executing rancher Lavoy Finicum, arresting the peaceful assembly of ranchers, and even detaining a member of the press, Pete Santilli.
An even greater BLM land grab is in the making
U.S. Congressman Rob Bishop recently sent out a press release about 14 pages he uncovered from a Department of Interior (DOI) internal memo which details the Obama Administration’s plot to bypass Congress, and make it easier to confiscate and federalize land into the jurisdiction of the BLM.
The DOI memo reveals that a large BLM land grab is in the making. The pages reveal the need for an executive order which would bypass legislative hurdles by using an “Antiquities Act” to appropriate “cultural land” to be confiscated and managed by the BLM. The executive order would seek to target the “acute” problem of private land ownership that is adjacent to land already governed by the BLM. The targeted land includes 412,675 acres.
“In order to expand this network of treasured lands to include the diversity of landscapes currently managed by the BLM,” it states. The DOI memo also reveals, “The BLM recommends that any major funding increases be phased in over a five-year period to allow the BLM time to build capacity in order to accomplish the increased work-load.”
The war on private property ownership will continue in the West, as the BLM plans to take more and more land. The cries will grow louder to return public lands to the states, as individuals are forced to defend their private property against the federal government.
KEY CAMPAIGN ISSUES & PRIORITIES
- We must balance the budget. National debt will leave an oppressive legacy to our children and grandchildren.
- Spending beyond our means, fueled by wanton borrowing, poses a severe threat to our nation’s well being. We must become faithful stewards of our Nation’s blessings.
- Fair Tax reform should replace the current federal income tax system that has become bloated, corrupt and unmanageable.
- Reduce federal government cost. Relocate federal agencies in less expensive cities around the country, thus also boosting those local economies.

As most of you know, we at PRC are long on documentation. We have a firm belief that things are bad enough and we don’t have to make anything up. With those tenets in mind, I am going to tell you some rumors that have been circulating in our neck of the Ozarks for several months. Bob and I have not seen these things ourselves, but we have heard them from different sources and the reports are increasing… and increasingly disconcerting.
What we have heard began crossing our paths last fall. The earliest reports began near the end of August 2015. The latest reports came to us in the past couple of weeks. I can’t stress enough that we have not directly seen this, but the actions and plans of radical Islam are well documented and ongoing. Since that is the truth, at this point, we have a duty to tell you what has been being said so that you may be forewarned and prepared for what may come sometime soon. Please go to John Guandolo’s Understanding The Threat website and read his research and the solutions he sets forth. Guandolo was the architect of the first FBI Counterrorism Training Program. The site contains important information with very serious ramifications if we fail to understand what we are facing.
The first thing we heard about was a report out of Oklahoma that there were two buses with DHS vehicle escorts and the buses were filled with Middle Eastern looking men and stopped at a truck stop south of OKC. It was difficult to substantiate those reports, and Snopes says that the story about buses in Oklahoma is “unsubstantiated”, but I asked someone who works for a transport company to ask some drivers if they had seen anything like that while on the road. One driver reported the same scenario at two different truck stops in the state of Illinois. One of the truck stops where this was noted was near Peoria, IL, and I cannot recall the name of the other city in Illinois. Since this was work, a full investigation and querying of all drivers was not done. But we have the same report from a reportedly trustworthy individual with no other leading information given than, “Did you see any buses with what looked like Middle Eastern guys while you were out?”
Then there was the Bagnell Dam report here in Missouri. Also, the theft of propane cylinders, and those have never been recovered, and the discovery of a cache of explosives near Ft Leonard Wood, along with the incredible amount of cell phones purchased by Middle Eastern men at Wal-Mart stores throughout Missouri. Additionally, there was middle eastern looking man caught on a game camera in central Missouri. These have all been substantiated by main stream news and no further information has been forthcoming about whatever investigation may be taking place regarding the cell phones or propane tanks.
Now on to the things being said that are not reported in the media, although there seems to be some corroborating reports from elsewhere on these issues.
It is reported that planes have landed at Ft Leonard Wood loaded with apparent refugees from Syria. It has been stated that these refugees are given a credit card with about $10,000 dollars on it and then sent on their way to whatever destination they may have. The number of refugees is pretty staggering. We have heard “about 2000” total have come in this way. We do not know whether or not these refugees are related to the reported number of 29 refugees resettled in St Louis. The article states that they are looking to resettle as many as 60,000 Syrians in St Louis.
It is also reported that law enforcement has been instructed to basically stand down on any stopping or investigative inquiries into potential Islamic individuals. We know that since the late 1980’s there have been numerous Muslim Training Centers in rural areas across the US. Now there have been reports of Muslim training camps in Udall, Bakersfield and possibly near Mountain View and Summersville as well. The two near Udall and Bakersfield were reported to have had large explosions heard by nearby residents and no investigation has evidently been conducted regarding the reported explosions.
On the positive side of things, when I heard a report of a few agitated Middle Eastern men purchasing a suitcase in nearby Mountain Grove, I contacted someone on the police force there and they did investigate the report and discovered that the agitation was linked to language barrier issues and the men were actually known by an employee of the store in question. So, if police or other law enforcement have been instructed to stand down, it doesn’t appear that the memo has reached everyone in that occupation.
In conclusion, we want to be certain that everyone understands that we in the PRC are not interested in judging people on their skin color or their ethnicity. We don’t want to judge people on their religious affiliation either, as we are certain that there are Muslims who prefer to live peaceably as well. However, radical Islam will kill the peaceful Muslims just as quickly as the rest of us.
We want to live peaceably and want to encourage others to live peaceably. We also recognize that there are actual enemies of freedom and decency, and to let our desire for peace blind us to reality is not only irresponsible, but damnable. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. We feel that we have a definite obligation to let others know what has reportedly been happening right here in the Ozarks.
If you feel that same obligation, please pass this on, and do visit John Guandolo’s site and be certain to read the “What can I do?” link.
75% of Registered Producers Voted No
Columbia, MO—Today, the Missouri Rural Crisis Center (MRCC) is pleased to announce a stunning victory for Missouri’s independent cattle farmers over corporate agriculture, with the defeat of the proposed Missouri beef checkoff. MRCC, a statewide farm and rural organization that represents independent cattle farmers, led the “Vote NO” campaign.
This was a tremendous victory for Missouri cattle farmers and the future of our industry. Thousands of family farmers said loud and clear that they do not support paying any additional beef checkoffs.
According to the results announced today by the Missouri Department of Agriculture, 77% of registered producers voted in the referendum and 75% of those voters said “NO” to a new beef checkoff.
“Missouri cattle producers are on the right side of history and this vote shows that we are willing to stand up and fight for the future of our industry,” said Darvin Bentlage, cattle farmer from Barton County, MO. “We will not cave to special interests and unaccountable government agencies attempting to take over our industry.”
This new checkoff was an attempt to force Missouri’s 50,000 cattle farmers to pay over $2 million a year into a new unaccountable state beef checkoff program. U.S. cattle producers have already paid over $2 billion into the federal beef checkoff program, which has been a failure. Beef consumption is down 32%, 40% of Missouri cattle operations have gone out of business, and more and more of our checkoff dollars are going to promote foreign beef. Adding a new mandatory checkoff clearly was not the answer.
Unfortunately, organizations that supported this new state beef checkoff continue to demonstrate that they are out-of-touch with the vast majority of Missouri’s cattle farmers.
“This was not only a fight against the new beef checkoff, it is also a fight about what kind of livestock production we want in Missouri—corporate controlled industrial livestock production, or a future for family farm agriculture,” said Roger Allison, cattle farmer from Howard County and Executive Director of MRCC. “This vote is an example of how we can and will fight and win for our independence, democracy and the future of family farms.”
