The list of Texans becoming victims of theft by our beloved Federal Government is ever-growing, private property rights are being ignored along with their protection under the Constitution. As we previously reported about Ken Aderholt and his battle to keep his land to continue generating income to feed his family and eventually pass on to his children.
We’ve discovered a few more, Patrick Canan who lives in Clay, County is currently in a tug-of-war with the Bureau of Land Management who are stealing 1,400 of his 2000 acres. Jimmy and Irene Smith who live on 150 acres in Wichita, County and voluntarily hosts chili cook-offs and concerts for the local volunteer fire department on his property is under the gun now by the Feds. They want to snatch 100 of his 150 acres which will shrink his livelihood and infringe on the property that he pays for. Then there is Ken and Barbara Patton in Wichita, County who raised cattle for 16 years on their land and plan to sign it over to their kids but are now leery to proceed due to the legal theft being perpetrated on the family farm. Mr. William Lalk who bought his land in 1979 and now the BLM wants an unspecified amount of his soil that his personal income has paid for. Kevin and Elizabeth Hunter are now having to hold off on their agriculture business and roll up the plans for their proposed homestead in fears of a strong-armed theft by the BLM who are staking claim to unknown parts of their hard-earned land. The BLM are also staking claim to 750 of Ron Jackson’s 1,138 acres in Clay County.
Now they are fighting back with the most often one-sided justice system, in hopes to restore their land, their livelihoods, and their sanity from this nightmare.
A lawsuit has now been filed against the overreaching government who want to come in and trample on our Freedoms.
The BLM is blatantly violating our citizens’ 4th and 5th Amendment rights and “infringing upon the sovereignty of local county governments,” the lawsuit says that was filed in the District Court by Wichita and Wilbarger counties along with the nine private property owners, and Clay county Sheriff.
The BLM asserts that its boundary extends well past the riverbed into Texas and, in some instances, more than a mile outside of its lawful territory.”
Wilbarger, Clay and Wichita counties are saying that the BLM’s claim “interferes with their ability to regulate and provide services for the health, benefit and welfare of their citizens, and infringes upon their sovereignty.” The County Commissioners in Wichita Falls, Texas add that Governor Greg Abbott gave a pronounced ‘Go Ahead’ before jumping into the fray.
Clay County Sheriff Kenneth Lemons exclaims the BLM’s “vague assertion of ownership and jurisdiction interferes with his ability to discharge his law enforcement duties by preventing him from being able to discern” the federal land from the local land.
The lawsuit also states “Furthermore, the BLM’s assertion of ownership causes trespassers to encroach on private landowners’ land and engage in unlawful activity under the belief they cannot be removed because it is federal public land.”
The feds argue the 116-mile stretch along the Red River has been theirs all along.
John Ingle from the Times record News reports “The BLM has maintained that the entire parcel of land along 116-miles of the Red River in question has been public land managed by the federal government since the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, confirmed time and again with Spain and the Supreme Court of the United States rulings.”
The counties, citizens and more importantly the land owners are very concerned that BLM have ruined the Plaintiffs’ titles, deeds, and preventing them from selling their property, borrowing against it, or otherwise fully utilizing it.
This shake down, mafia style theft will not go down without a fight, especially in Texas. There will be resistance, Dontcomply.com and Come and Take it Texas will once again lead the charge and amass numerous patriots, activists, and all other fellow humanitarians to rise up and say NO! to the thievery that is the BLM. Our Governor, Greg Abbott and Senator Ted Cruz believe the same way, with or without them ‘We the People’ can stand strong and divert these authoritarian thugs who want to come here and steal from these hard-working people.

The BLM has NO constitutional authority to have ANY land except for ports and 10 square miles. PERIOD. They have become land rich mineral brokers instead and it’s time they were STOPPED.
The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.

This is simple government tyranny. Texas, upon becoming a State retained its State Lands, which, are fully identified. The Fed. Gov’t has no business on our private property, one of the basics described by our Founders. What they do in OK is different than what they can do in Texas. This infringement of property rights is above the pail. Texans should stand up against this overreach by an unelected agency.
