**UPDATE** I just got a call this morning from Ted Vega the manager/ operator of the Rod and Reel Gun Club. he said the Sheriff’s department are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday to seize their property. He said, “There are people that are down here ready to go to Jail over this, We are ready to fight and will not back Down!”
“As many of you have heard, Galveston County Court #2 Judge Barbara Roberts has after a short review of the thousands of pages of documentation has ruled against Our beloved Rollover Pass. I think there is too much friendship between the County Court System and the County Commissioner Court, Does it seem even right that the court of the same county where its county commissioners want to take private property rules, it would be political unfavorable to rule for the people, I think this or more happened.
The fight against the abuse of power from George P. Bush’s Texas General Land Office coercing Galveston County to use their eminent domain power to take the private property away from the landowner who has owned this land since the late 40’s, and for the last 60 years has been enjoyed by millions of visitors. These visitors are pissed off, and I don’t blame them one bit. The Gilchrist Community Association will be having a emergency meeting Monday 4/24 at Fantasea BBQ at 7pm,
I understand that the Sheriff will soon be coming and removing people from the property. For anyone that cannot make this meeting and is willing to stand up to this corrupt act by Galveston County and the TX GLO should contact me. Private Property is a sacred tradition in Texas, Stand with me.
I will be soon post phone numbers of our elected officials who evidently cannot hear the voice of the people who have repeatedly told them not to do this for the GLO. I apologize for being so abrupt but, I too am pissed off, especially at our new County Commissioner Darrel Apffel” he followed with this post this morning:
“Committed to protect Life and Property” 1-409-766-2300
This is the original story that we broke: A wicked hand is protruding from the heart of Texas, the popular and historical Rollover Pass in Galveston has been targeted by the General Land Office in Texas. It once was a shallow water way that bootleggers used to roll barrels of whiskey across to avoid the Galveston taxes. This property has been owned by the current citizens since the 1940’s and in 1960 The Army Corp of Engineers asked and were given permission by the land owner to build a bridge over the pass. This allowed the people to access the other side to fish for deep water fish by simply backing up a truck, or rolling up in a wheelchair for the handicapped instead of having to have a boat. This all started during former land commissioner Jerry Patterson’s tenure, he already turned over the Alamo to the Unesco (UN) and now this.
After repeated refusals and lawsuits from the owners to give up their land, the legislature passed a law to allow Patterson to either repair or close the pass. This was still not enough for the State because according to law, the State cannot inflict eminent domain on property owners, it’s only enforceable by County where the land is located. The reasoning the State is giving for the closure of this vital pass is because of Mother Earth’s natural erosion. The only way for the County to agree to steal the land and shut down the economy as well as the Freedoms for the people who access it is the root of all evil, and that is Money.
George P Bush, (Jeb’s Son) knowing full well that the state can’t steal this desirable land, resorts to strong-arming Galveston County with money to get them to do the dirty work for him to save his face for further Governor endeavors. These “Honorable” County Commissioners are saying on record, that they have no other choice but to vote in favor of using Eminent Domain to appropriate the 15+ acres of shore front. They are afraid that if they don’t seize this land that they will lose the state funds that pour in from the General Land Office (GLO) and the money that Texas Department of Transportation extorts from its fellow Texans believed to be in excess of 20 million dollars. This land grab comes to Texas, not in the form of the BLM, but from the Texas General Land Office under command of George P Bush and his fancy GLO website that flashes all these so-called accomplishments to groom himself for the next step in the quest for control of the statehouse.
By accepting this blackmail the county commissioners are drinking the corruption kool-aid by taking the cash and soon to be broken promises that if they close the pass by seizing and closing this private property they will be rewarded with a pier that would prove detrimental for the locals and an unwanted large park. All of this promised by the very thieves who are orchestrating the land grab. This flow of money is said to have come from the “deep water horizon’ gulf oil spill reimbursement fund, federal monies from Hurricane Ike that devastated this area which people are still recovering from. There are approximately 30 businesses and hundreds of local low-income families that would be immediately impacted by this government overreach.
On Tuesday the Galveston County Commissioners voted 4-1 to proceed with eminent domain and seize the land. No matter what the courts say the property that is managed by Ted Vega from the Gilchrist Community and the ‘The Rod and Reel Gun Club’ along with the owner are boldly stating that they WILL NOT COMPLY and will refuse the money and WILL NOT give up their land.

The owner of the property had this to say before the commissioner meeting, “Due to previous unresolved commitments I am unable to attend this meeting. For over 60 years Rollover has provided the salt water that has made East Bay a première fishing destination on the Gulf coast. Closing Rollover will not only eliminate the bank fishing it has been famous for all these years but will also substantially reduce the productivity of East Bay. Without fish there are no fisherman and the economic benefit they bring to the Bolivar peninsula. Why would the commissioners court do anything that will substantially reduce visitors to the peninsula? The fishermen and women of Rollover have paid to have consultants run modeling studies on the Pass according to the modeling parameters set by the state. These modeling studies show that closing Rollover will substantially reduce the salinity of East Bay and thus its productivity. For the sake of all the people who fish at Rollover, all the people who live on the peninsula to fish in East Bay, all the people who travel to the peninsula to fish East Bay, and all the people whose livelihoods depend on these visitors DO NOT CLOSE ROLLOVER.”
Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset who has been approached about his possible enforcement of a court order to shut down the Rollover Bay” has stated that he will honor his oath and not get involved in such a tyrannical act and mentioned that he is a member of the Constitutional Sheriff’s Association. So then it reverts to a 20 man team at the Constables office which we doubt will stick their neck out in this unjust robbery. A National Guard military advisor toured the land and came to a conclusion that this land is indefensible by just land and would require boats. To him and others involved a preferable non-kinetic solution would be ideal, but the money is too hard to turn down. One commissioner said “We can’t stop it, it’s going to get taken anyway, let’s just take the land and get the money for it”.

I talked to David Watts a former candidate for land commissioner and currently running for a State Representative seat. He told me that Texas is so addicted to federal money that he believes that we will never stand up to any federal government encroachments as we are seeing here and on the Red River. About %35 of the Texas Budget is from the Federal Government so we can see why. Watts told dontcomply.com that “This is private land that Government is trying to take away, just because they don’t like the way it’s being used.” His solution has been the same for quite sometime and that is to construct a Jetty system to help deal with the long shore drift, this would be the most respectful way to solve the erosion issue. The next step if the state fails to protect private property owners is the will of the people to amass and utilize their numbers and strength to defend themselves and others.
So sad that this day and age we are under constant attack from the elected officials that wave and smile and say that they will honor their oaths of office and fight for the people they serve. The money is being chosen before Liberty, so now is the time that we chose resistance, we will not comply. Mr. Watts shared an MLK quote with me during our conversation, ” Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice Everywhere” The Commissioners who put money before private property rights: Ryan Dennard cell phone (713- 885-271), Stephen D. Holmes Phone (409) 770-5806, Ken Clark (281-316-8745)

And I guarantee that those people voted FOR Bush. Once again, GOP voters went against their own best interests. They are getting exactly what they CHOSE when they cast their ballots
If indeed we are voting for people based on their relatives – than watch out for Trump – his dad was arrested for protesting WITH the KKK in NY and his daughter dates a Rothschild (NWO)
The corruption that is politics today has completely diseased this nation and I see no cure in sight. The Politicians are completely out of control, chasing after wealth and prestige like there is no tomorrow and there may not be -a tomorrow, if the politicians have their way.
Bush is just another way to spell SH-T.

The people of Bolivar need to know that this usurpation more than likely means that this is just the beginning of the push to economically starve the residents out of the Bolivar Peninsula. This act is in association with the Greater Houston/Galveston planning association. See Agenda 21 for and surrounding documents. Visit the NGO’s websites which have been set up to accomplish the task of creating the metropolitan areas, where citizens are to be driven into. The citizenry is to be removed from many land masses and rural areas. See the UN biodiversity map. No go zones, Agri-centers, & Buffer zones are just some of the words used in this UN project. G.H. Bush signed the Agenda 21 agreement in Brazil, on his way out of office, which has never been Ratified by the US Senate. Bill Clinton created the Presidents Council on Sustainable Development, I believe in 1992. ICLEI is the organization which works directly under the UN to establish the relationships with traitors who will aide them in the accomplishment of local city & county usurpation’s. ICLEI stands for Int’l Council on Local Environmental Issues. They locate the local people, get them elected into positions, where these same will payback the organizations, which funded their campaigns with doing the local procedure to pass land grabs. Of course, once they have them doing acts of treason, they never let them go. The threat of exposure keeps them acting as participants, even if they were to develop a guilty conscience. The UN organizations sent out workers into all of the 13 surrounding counties that adjoin Harris county, back in, I believe it was 2012, where they did very little to give proper notice to citizens, about meetings to be held. I myself attended, and the meetings were a scam, but they needed to be able to have the ability to show that there were meetings, and attendees, so that they could later say that they had went through proper procedures. There going to say that they met the US Constitution requirements, that it was local citizens who approved these actions. Other than the people who were plants there, to be used as fake participants, most of us were TEA Party Members, and were knowledgeable of their attempts. We stood in opposition. I’ll guarantee that this is what is happening.
I had a home there before IKE wiped it off the face of the earth, great location for fishing and kayaking !!!
its Banrhill property and some was never told they were heirs to it but wait till all the barnhill clan gets hold of this
This sounds similar to the Grand Jury investigation of Rick Perry illegally using the power of his office to intimidate a public official. “Abuse of Official Capacity”.

I thought the Bush junior was a Floridian.
Swapster, yeah George P Bush used to be a Floridian, but after breaking into a young woman’s home, driving his Ford Explorer across her yard, and getting arrested for Burglary and Criminal Mischief, he got out of Dodger…errr Miami-Dade. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/file/nut-some-soup-0?page=0
Looking at the comments, you should be careful what you wish for. Yes, Trump is saying all the nice things you want to hear. Truth is, he’s Unconstitutional. He will ‘never’ make the NDAA / Patriot Act null n void.. which means, you will simply end up with another puppet dictator.
Trump supports Israel where YOU are ‘giving aid’ to Israel in the Billions every year.
*** See what you are paying for.
You don’t see ANY of the Candidates focusing on Oregon OR Texas right now.
Why is that? Answer is, the audience is split on what to do about the land grabs.
The Candidates don’t want to BE Constitutional.. lest they lose some of their precious support. THAT’S how elections are run. Showing the public what they want to see, getting elected, then pulling back and making excuses / lies for why they can’t provide.
The ENTIRE Political scene is CORRUPT as are the Feds (which are Corporations) and if the people don’t make their representatives DO THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL duty instead of taking Federal Money, then you will lose your land to foreign entities.
***** BUSTED Gov Employee’s Laughing about Stealing Land! MAKE VIRAL
I support Israel as do most Americans and all Christians. Trump has boldly raised the sentinel issues of our day—border security; birthright citizenship and a pause in Muslim immigration. These are the genesis of all our major problems. Economic, security, prison overcrowding, overburdening of our healthcare and welfare systems; overcrowded and overburdened educational systems—and in insecure nation when it comes to national security.
sorry, I do not see Trump as a “puppet dictator”. No way, no how. First of all, he is not taking any campaign contributions from ANYONE which means he will owe nothing to nobody. That in of itself is pretty damn impressive. 20 years ago in interviews, you can clearly hear his views and opinions on how this country was being run. He has been right on. He may not have governmental experience, foreign policy experience, etc., but I’ll bet he will catch on very fast and will surround himself with the BEST advisors. This government and this administration is such a disaster, as were administrations prior, that it would take superman to fix all of our problems, and, it sure ain’t gonna happen in 2, or even 4 years. But it could be a start. You would rather have another CAREER POLITICIAN, who is bought and sold by the highest bidder, i.e,. Koch brothers, George Soros, Goldman Sacs, etc. leading this country? I dont think so. People actually harp on stupid irrelevant crap and knock someone for how they like their steak cooked, than to focus on where this country is heading, which is down the damn toilet, if we don’t get someone in the white house who can turn it around. don’t be stupid – vote #TRUMP2016.
I agree with you 100%. Trump is a patriot and speaking truth to power no matter whether it wears a D or R.
This is why Texans should have elected David Watts as Land Commissioner when he ran against George Prescott Bush for that seat. http://www.stopthemagnet.com/candidate-page/david-watts-candidate-for-texas-land-commissioner Now Mr. Watts is running for the Texas House of Representatives in HD7. Check it out! http://www.wattsfortexas.org/
We voted for Watts and tried to sound the alarm on George P. –people are just stuck on stupid.
Sounds as if we have our very own Burns brewing…
Quick, let’s get Trump the eminent domaine supporter, to comment on this and hurry!
