Why the Hammonds?
“The story is like an onion, you just keep peeling back the layers,” Maupin said.
In an effort to stave off what they feared was a pending Clinton/Babbitt monument designation in 2000, a group of ranchers on the scenic Steens Mountain worked with Oregon Representative Greg Walden, a Republican, to draft and enact the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Act that would prevent such a deed. The ranchers agreed to work with special interest “environmental” groups like the aggressive Oregon Natural Desert Association and others to protect the higher-than 10,000-foot peak.
A number of ranchers at the top of the mountain traded their BLM permits and private property for land on the valley floor, allowing Congress to create a 170,000 acre wilderness in 2000, with almost 100,000 acres being “cow-free.”
“The last holdouts on that cow-free wilderness are the Hammonds,” said Maupin. Though some still have BLM grazing permits, the Hammonds are the last private landowners in the area.
“It’s become more and more obvious over the years that the BLM and the wildlife refuge want that ranch. It would tie in with what they have,” said Rusty Inglis, an area rancher and retired U.S. Forest Service employee.
Rusty Inglis, the local area rancher and retired U.S. Forest Service employee who is mentioned in the article, made the comment, “It would tie in with what they have,” referring to the Hammond Ranch.
That begs the question, what exactly is it that they (the feds) have?
The answer to that question comes from another source, who sent me the video below. Aside from the video’s title, “EMERGENCY – Obama Ordered Hammond Ranch Destroyed,” there are several other things that are very troubling, the first of which is the date.
The video was uploaded one day before the scheduled protest , which was the same day the militia took over the federal refuge, or January 1st.
Why would Obama order the ranch destroyed before any of the last 24’s events took place?
From what YouTuber William Mount says, there is MUCH more to this story, and in typical Obama fashion, it’s all absolutely FILTHY… every damn bit of it.
Mount says that “what the feds have” with the rest of the land surrounding the Hammond Ranch, is well documented in U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1740-B. Download it now before it gets taken down.
It turns out that the land the feds own, and the land in question at the Hammond Ranch have enormous amounts of Natural Gas, Uranium, Mercury, and Arsenic.
If you follow me regularly, you know I cover the economy and the looming financial implosion of the U.S. Dollar very closely, and I’ve been saying for some time that the Dollar collapse is imminent.
William Mount reports that the Treasury Department is well aware of the pending crash and has plans to issue a new Dollar later in 2016, that will be backed by natural gas and oil, and the Hammond Ranch is the only thing holding up the extraction of the resources owned by the feds.
Furthermore, Mount says in an effort to appease our largest creditor, Obama has already cut a deal with the Chinese to take the Uranium for their nuclear program.
At this point, if you’re like me, you’re thinking that all sounds nice, a bit far fetched perhaps, despite the supporting U.S. Geological Survey, but not impossible right? BUT, how exactly is all that mining going to get done, who’s going to do it, and how is the Uranium allegedly going to get to China?
Mount suggests none other than Democrat Congressmen DeFazio. He suggests “following the money.” When you do that, OpenSecrets.org shows that the bulk of Congressmen DeFazio’s campaign money all came from the following industries: air transit, transportation unions, building materials and equipment, railroads, and industrial unions.
Going even further, his top five individual donors were: Air Line Pilots Association Communications Workers of America, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Unite Here, and Berkshire Hathaway.
Uh… Ok. I suppose THAT is how the the mining will get done, and the Uranium shipped to China. Wow.
Mount says Obama’s feds have been harassing the Hammond Ranch very aggressively for a long time in an effort to get at the natural gas and Uranium resources the land holds, but to no avail.
Now, the feds have simplified their plan: Toss the Hammond’s in prison for a grossly excessive sentence, and see to it that they meet unfortunate and untimely deaths while there. Remember, per the article, “In the Hammonds’ plea agreement in the 2012 trial, the BLM obtained the first right of refusal should the family have to sell their private land,” or if they should happen to come to an early dirt nap “retirement” so to speak.
Property rights attorney Karen Budd-Falen from Cheyenne, Wyoming, brings up a fascinating point as it relates to the prison sentence. She says, “What totally amazes me is what these guys did – they burned 140 acres. If you compare that to the EPA spill in Colorado, it amazes me that NOTHING will happen to those EPA employees.”
With respect to the EPA folks, she goes on, “You have cities down there [in Colorado] with no drinking water.
The Hammonds didn’t do anything like that,” and with the well documented deposits they are sitting on, there sentence is all just a coincidence? Please! There are never coincidences with Obama. There are only schemes
