FOIA From Secure Arkansas on The White River National Blueway

Another tool for those interested in protecting your private property rights and keeping the UN from controlling your land. The good folks at Secure Arkansas have rec’d this information in a FOIA of Arkansas Game and Fish (one of the 26 “stakeholders) in the nominating committee for the National Blueway. Please take some time and go through this and you will have plenty of ammo to use in your efforts to get our elected officials to do the right thing and interpose on the citizen’s behalf.

FYI, it is a big file and loaded with info.

Again, to reiterate the strategy, we must first get our County Commissioner’s educated and activated against the Blueway and have them sign a resolution against it.

Then we need our State Representatives and Senators to sign resolutions against it.

Copies of the signed resolutions must be sent to the Federal level elected officials, the Attorney General for the State of Missouri, Jay Nixon, our not so illustrious Governor, as well as the Secretaries of the Department of the Interior, Department of Army and the USDA.

Then, for those who want extra credit, the Federal level Congressmen and Senators should be contacted with a fax and phone call.

Please, if someone would find the contact info for the aforementioned individuals and put that in as a comment here, I would greatly appreciate it and then insert it into the body of this post.

Thanks to all of you who stand for freedom!

    That is weird. I’ll work on it. Hopefully It will be fixed by a simple re-do.

    Try it again. I think I fixed it. At least on my computer!

    A ‘starting point’ letter to (Missouri) officials follows. You may copy / paste / modify and use for your local officials

    Sir / Madam
    I (and every single person that I have spoken with) am very concerned with a government directive that will soon take effect in twelve Missouri Counties (Barry, Christian, Douglas, Greene, Howell, Lawrence, Ozark, Stone, Taney, Texas, Webster and Wright): designation of the White River Watershed as a National Blueway.
    President Obama has endorsed a Memorandum of Understanding that will grant non-elected officials (Secretary of Interior, Secretary of Agriculture and Department of the Army) significant authority over SW Missouri land (in addition to Arkansas and Oklahoma) as part of a program that virtually no one (including the land owners) have even heard about.
    “Watershed” is a Key Word here and can mean every square inch of land from which rainfall runoff eventually flows into the White River, including potentially our own back yards! As only one of many possible examples of the consequences, farmers and cattlemen might be constrained in the tilling of their soil and water runoff from their fields and pastures.
    There are more than one million citizens (land owners) affected by this designation, and yet with the act scheduled to take effect the first week of July, there has been virtually zero public discussion, or input by those affected. We are not comfortable with “surprise, warm fuzzy feeling” language and then turning our land over to non-elected bureaucrats who don’t even live in this area..
    This idea is not new. In1996 there was a somewhat similar proposal for the same general area (Ozark Highlands/White River Basin) that was halted when then-Governor (Arkansas) Huckabee demanded termination.
    I request your public support in terminating any approval / implementation of the Blueway designation until such time as the true stakeholders (honest, law abiding citizens who are the true stewards of this land) have been fully informed of what is involved.
    Thank you
