Stop Funding of Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)!

(6/7/15)

What is the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)? 

This paragraph is taken directly from the National Park Service website.

The LWCF Program provides matching grants to States and local governments for the acquisition and development of public outdoor recreation areas and facilities (as well as funding for shared federal land acquisition and conservation strategies). The program is intended to create and maintain a nationwide legacy of high quality recreation areas and facilities and to stimulate non-federal investments in the protection and maintenance of recreation resources across the United States.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? But it isn’t.

Why is it bad? Continue reading

Supreme Court ruling confirms property rights aren’t second class rights

Two of the most fearful words a property owner will hear are “eminent domain”.

Eminent domain is the right of a government or its agent to expropriate private property for public use, with payment of compensation. Notice the definition does not include “fair” payment of compensation.

So what can a landowner do, if they feel they have not received fair compensation? Up until this Supreme Court decision not much. To read more about this property rights victory, click on this link.

Supreme Court Rules 7-2 in Favor of “Peace Cross” War Memorial

The easily offended Left has made the destruction of historic statues one of its new hobbies. With the destruction of the statues comes the destruction of our history and in the case of the Peace Cross our Christian religion.

The Supreme Court with its 7-2 decision in favor of keeping the cross gave some degree of reassurance that other similar monuments may survive the Leftist purge. However, as you read the article and the various opinions of the Justices, please note the stance of several of the judges on Christian monuments which may be built in the future.

The Dark Side of Conservation Easements-Continuation of Martha Boneta’s Saga

Anyone who is familiar with Agenda 21 knows that both the Socialist and the extreme environmentalists are working to destroy private property rights. Without property we are no more than slaves. One of the strategies used to destroy property rights is conservation easements.

Keeping it simple, conservation easements are created when a land trust pays a land owner to promise to not develop IN PERPITUITY their property (in most cases just building a new barn would be not be allowed under the terms of the conservation easement). In return the land owner and his heirs are then able to stay on this land in perpetuity (which is an awful long time to restrict land to only one possible use).

You may have followed the story of Martha Boneta, who bought in 2006 acreage in Virginia that was part of a conservation easement. If so you are aware the land trust, Piedmont Environmental Council, from whom the conservation easement had been purchased, fined Ms. Boneta $5,000 dollars per day after the zoning administrator saw a picture posted on Boneta’s Facebook page of a birthday celebration given on her farm. This heavy handed treatment triggered a long contracted legal battle by Ms. Boneta to maintain control of her property which ultimately ended in Boneta’s Law. Boneta’s Law has shown a light on the abuses of conservation easements and gained a degree of property rights protection for small farmers in Virginia.

What you likely do not know is that Ms. Boneta is again back in court. To learn more about the new battle, again against the land trust, Piedmont Environmental Council, click on this link.

You also likely do not know that Ms. Boneta’s story has been made into a film that was shown at the Anthem Film Festival at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas on July 11, 2015 where it won two awards. If you would like to see a trailer for this fine video, click on this link.

You may also wish to read about a 2013 law suit filed against a horse farm, which was being operated under a conservation easement, and how just a few small changes on the farm triggered this two year court battle. If so, click on this link.

Moral of the story: beware of conservation easements and land trusts. While they may fix a short term cash flow problem, they will create restrictions for current and future land owners. More important conservation easements decrease future economic activity on the property affecting the nation’s bottom line. In addition, as more land is removed from private ownership, the cost of land and taxes on non-conservation easement land will increase. Eventually only the elite will be able to afford land, forcing the rest of us into the city, where we can be more easily controlled by an over-reaching government.

The Vancouver Action Plan: Tells How Property Rights Must Be Taken from the People

The information provided below comes from one of the MANY conferences that the United Nations has held in the last 40 years to formulate plans on how to gain control over all of the Earth’s resources. The language in the Preamble makes it very clear that private property rights must be taken away from the American people if Agenda 21 is to be implemented and that government needs to be the instrument through which it should occur.
