Oregon Rancher Group Just Gave the Obama Regime a HUGE Middle Finger

Bundy standoff

Citizens for Constitutional Government, a group of Oregon ranchers and other Americans who recently took over the vacated Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in order to take back land unconstitutionally stolen by the tyrannical government, took a measure today that is surely going to frustrate the Obama Regime.

On Monday, the patriotic group, led by Nevada rancher and son of Clive Bundy, Ammon Bundy, which pledges to rightfully return the Oregon land to the ranchers it was stolen from, began to remove the fence that kept the public from entering “public” lands.

Wanda Moore, a reporter news anchor/reporter for KTVZ, out of Bend, OR, posted video of the group removing the fence:

Moore also reports that the peaceful protesters have renamed the Malheur Wildlife Refuge and even replaced the sign with one that says “Harney County Resource Center.”

PolitiStick’s Greg Campbell further explains the government greed behind the standoff:

As PolitiStick has previously reported, Western states are largely “owned” by the federal government. While New York belongs to New Yorkers, Nevada, the Bundys’ home state, belong to the federal government as around 85% of all land in the Silver State is claimed by the feds. Oregon is not much better- roughly 53% of Oregon’s land is claimed by the federal government- a fact that has ground Oregon’s timber-based economy to nub of what it once was.

Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution specifically limits how much land the federal government can own and for what purpose, despite claims from the Obama BLM.

That section limits federal land “for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings,” and not, as the feds claim for “wildlife” or the whims of politicians.

Additionally, the federal government is allowed to own ten square miles for the nation’s capitol, not 85% of any state — as they claim to own in Nevada — or 53% — as the feds claim to own in Oregon — to satisfy the government’s insatiable hunger for the people’s land.

It’s pretty logical to believe that the states would have never agreed to form a federal government if they believed it would have usurped as much states’ rights and states’ land as they have.
