The Daily Wire reports that Obama has seized more land for the federal government than any other president in American history.
To date, he has unilaterally taken over 260 million acres of land and water, giving control and ownership over to the feds.
Just last week, Obama grabbed another 1.8 million acres of California land by creating three new national monuments: Castle Mountains, Mojave Trails and Sand to Snow. The War on the West isn’t just ongoing, it’s escalating. The feds are actively seizing land from the states, and pushing ranchers, loggers, and others off the land for good.
It’s not going to end anytime soon, either. Under the “Antiquities Act of 1906,” the feds essentially granted themselves the authority to claim any land, any time, any place. What’s next? The Washington Post reports on several possibilities.
Other possible future designations include Bears Ears, a sacred site for several Native American tribes in southeastern Utah; Stonewall, the site of a 1969 inn riot by members of New York City’s gay community; the New England Coral Canyons and Seamounts; the historic headquarters of the National Woman’s Party, Sewall-Belmont House in Washington, D.C.; and Nevada’s Gold Butte, an area where rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters have defied federal authorities.
In other words, unless we start fighting back NOW, the amount of land the feds will claim to own is only going to increase as they keep designating new “monuments,” “landmarks,” and other excuses to seize property from the states and individuals.
