Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst has added his name to the list of people disgusted with the Bureau of Land Management's scheme to seize over 90,000 acres of land from Texas without compensation.
Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst has said he will fight the Obama administration if they try to seize Texas land.
AUSTIN, TX (Catholic Online) - Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst had some harsh words for the Bureau of Land Management which apparently is scheming to take 90,000 acres of Texas ranchland for its own use, without even compensating the state.
Dewhurst was blunt saying, "The federal government's history of arrogant overreach is approaching a new low with word the Bureau of Land Management is threatening to confiscate up to 90,000 acres of Texas land without compensation. This is a federal land-grab, pure and simple and the BLM has done it before."
Dewhurst explained that he was himself involved in an agreement forged in 2000, known as the Red River Compact. He challenged at that time the authority of the BLM to involve itself in matters being disputed between states.
He also threatened to "make this the 31st lawsuit against the Obama administration."
Earlier, the Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott also inquired into the legality of the BLM seizing the same land and warned that he would oppose such a move in the courts.
There is no indication the confrontation between the BLM and the state of Texas will involve militias and a heavily-armed federal bureaucracy, but the ongoing controversy is a sign of growing disgust with the federal government and the Obama administration.
The exercise of power by the Obama administration has become so corrupt and oppressive that Americans are joining radical groups -in so far as groups that believe in the preservation of our God-given rights is radical.
