Obama Administration Shuts Down Oil Drilling Out West


The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development.

The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation.

The move is sure to rankle Republicans, who say President Obama’s grip on fossil fuel drilling in federal lands is too tight.

Interior’s Bureau of Land Management cited environmental concerns for the proposed changes. Among other things, it excised lands with “wilderness characteristics” and areas that conflicted with sage grouse habitats.

    Impeachment not soon enough

    • cbrown says:

      Impossible. The Dems control the Senate and they will never vote to remove Obama from office, In fact, they increased their majority by three seats. So much for all you hot air merchants who didn’t vote, or wasted your vote on a third party unknown. You are going to love living as a drone with no hope and no future in the Unitrd States of Obama.

      • Robert says:

        I added up all those votes that did not go to Romney in the State of Connecticut and Obama still would have taken the state. So, where is the wasted vote? And Impeachment is possible, even with the Dems having majority in Senate. But over this article, unlikely.

        Well I guess we should practice, “SIEG HIEL MEIN FUHRER OBAMA, SIEG HEIL MEIN FUHRER OBAMA”! On second thought, I’ll leave that to the “useful idiot” sheep who put him back in office. F U obama!!

      • suzy2 says:

        This is probably true. This is why they should focus on filing an indictment for his criminal crimes we all know he has done. Prosecute Obama.

    • LarryAndy says:

      I had always thought I would have my horses to ride, do some work, etc. but China has now taken all our hay with our governor signing pacts with China to take all at a given rate regardless of drought or other conditions, now hay up from $50 a ton to $250 a ton, no one can feed their horses, so I had to give all of mine away, 12 beautiful horses I could no longer feed because I had to choose feed for my kids over the horses. BUT now China is given a license to build a horse slaughterin house in Mt. Home, ID for slaughtering and packaging of our horses for humand consumption in China. Our OIL out of MT and Alaska goes to China, our potatoes, our fruits and vegetables, our lumber, our scrap metal, all to China, our processing plants, our manufacturing, our texties, our computers, cars, everytihng now built by China so as the war is broke upon us we have to ask the Chinese for our military supplies as they are the ones attacking us. No time to build your ark, try a row boat, no time left, our guns are the last vestage of protection and threat against outside attacks but those will be gone SOON!

      Sad time in our history? No-o-o, the END time of our history..

      • Disgusted says:

        No it’s not the end of our history. We have smart people out there. A lot smarter than those in D.C. I’m sure that if we all get together, unite, we can come up with a plan to save this great country. Don’t tell me NO! If you do then you are not concerned about the future of America. I am!! Put your heads together and all of us thinking can come up with a solution to save US……WE HAVE TO BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WILL…..

          I suggest that Atlas Shrugged may offer a blueprint for how to fight the growth of government control that Obama will institute, now that he has won his coveted 2nd term.

        • LibertyRN says:

          I’ve seen both of the Atlas Shrugged movies and they were a foretelling of what the future would be like. I’m looking forward to #3 to show us how to fight this tyrannical government.

        • Huapakechi says:

        • We will have to enlist the help of the military both active and retired.

        • LeSellers says:

          This, I fear, is a vain hope.

          “The military” no longer has any connection to the country they defend. It’s one reason I chose to retire after only 21½ years.

          As I study the Constitution, I notice that we no longer see it as a blueprint for freedom. We ignore many of its provisions to our detriment. One of those provision is the militia as the cornerstone of our national defense policy and practice.

          Many will say the National Guard is the militia of the past. It is not. It meets none of the criteria that the Founders would understand as being a militia. The militia is the body of all able bodied men (and women, too, in this modern age) from ~18 to ~55. The II says “A well [trained*] militia being necessary to the security of a free State …”
          * The word “regulated” in the original text meant what we intend today by “trained”.

          The Founders rightly feared a “standing” army. That’s what we have now, and have had since WWII. One of the worst threats a standing army poses to the country is that it needs something to do. Well, we have given it something to do: Korea, Vietnam, Granada, Iraq (i & II), Afghanistan, Kosevo, and a hundred other “missions” that have nothing to do with the security of a free state.

          Because a standing army has allegiance to itself and its “leaders”, rather than the allegiance a militia has (i.e., to the people of the community — since the militia is the people of the community), the standing army will fire on USmerican citizens when ordered to do so.

          All of them? No, but sufficient numbers that any thought that the Army/National Guard will protect the people and uphold their oaths to “support and defend the Constitution of the united States of America” is forlorn.

          If Gen Petraeus and the FBI can be manipulated to delay the revelation of his “indiscretion” until after the election so as not to harm O’bama’s re-election chances, we should hear Brian Wilson’s lament: “We are doomed.”

          Mr. O’bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • Betty Busby says:

          Thank you, well said.

        • rosscoo says:

          LeSellers, one of the most articulate, educstionsl & inspirational comments ive ever read. Thank you very much.

        • LeSellers says:

          You and Betty Busby (below) are very kind to say so.

          Mr. O’bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • LeSellers says:

          Read the book. It’s only 1,100 pages.

          Mr. O’bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • May I suggest a (bloody?) military coup. Seems extreme, but the a-holes in Congress don’t seem to give a rat’s behind about WHATEVER O’Bummer does! I’ll be glad to buy the tar and feathers!!!!

        • I suggested that over two years ago!

        • Scirel says:

          I think there is only ONE strategy that will work:

          Let the thing fail sooner rather than later.

          So, the House should just pass a budget bill that they believe in,
          that is, big cuts with reasonable changes to entitlements, with NO tax
          increases whatsoever (i.e., make the Bush “cuts” PERMANENT, and also a modest increase in the debt ceiling. Pass it and then leave and do some golfing. The Dems in the WH and Senate will of course laugh at it, but it will be in their court. They will either agree to it or not.

          Then let them just rant and rave until the money runs out and we
          DEFAULT. Or Obama just illegally “creates” money, which will be cause
          for a suit. I mean, the legislation is there for the taking the whole
          time, so there is really no excuse to just create money illegally.

          Bottom line: Do the strong arm thing NOW and either let it be fixed
          or let it fail. Compromise is not going to fly and in the end will make
          the fall far, far, far worse. We need to let it fail NOW since there is
          still a lot of wealth on which we could capitalize a rebuilding effort.
          If the wealth dwindles from overtaxing, there won’t be anything left
          after the great default. And if it comes to that, I have one question:
          are you all learning your Arabic?

        • Scirel: This is precisely what they have been doing for the past four years. It has been the Senate that has been the draw back. The Senate and Obama has already teed off.

        • Scirel says:

          No, not really. The Republican wimp-asses keep caving in and raising the debt ceiling and passing continuing resolutions. Enough of that crap. Just pass a non-negotiable bill in the House, and go out and shoot skeet. And buy gold.

          PUBLIC NOTICE

          WHEREAS, We, the Sovereign Citizens of the several State Republics, that constitute the united States of America, declare that this is our Country, it does not belong to the politicians, nor does it belong to the bankers, or to the attorneys, nor does it belong to the judges. Not only is It our Country, but, We, the Sovereign Citizens, are the real power, and the only valid authority, behind the Federal Government and the various State Governments that We, the Sovereign Citizens have established; and

          WHEREAS, We also declare that the said Governments were created for the sole purpose of protecting and defending the unalienable rights that were given to us by our Father in Heaven and therefore You, our Public Servants, have no power, no authority, no right, and no duty to do anything beyond what powers We, the Sovereign Citizens have granted in our several Constitutions; and

          WHEREAS, We, the Sovereign Citizens, require that ALL of our public servants subscribe to, and affirm their willingness to abide by our prescribed Oath of Office before they are permitted to hold any position that We, the Sovereign Citizens, have created; and

          WHEREAS, The said Oath of Office is for the specific purpose of protecting and defending our Constitution for the United States of America against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. We firmly declare that the Oath of Office is a “binding contract” between our Public Servants and We, the Sovereign Citizens, which our Public Servants are duty bound to honor amd obey, and that by violating their Oath of Office they have become domestic enemies to We, the Sovereign Citizens; and

          WHEREAS, We have determined that many of our elected and appointed officials are not in compliance with their sacred oath of office; and

          WHEREAS, Not only have they refused to heed their Oath of Office Contract with us, they are ignoring the mandates and provisions that We, the Sovereign Citizens, established in our Constitution for the United States of America and our Constitutions for the several States; and

          WHEREAS, We, the Sovereign Citizens understand that whenever any form of governement becomes destruction of the purposes for which it was created, We, the Sovereign Citizens, have the right, the power, the duty, and the obligation, to amend or alter such government and to institute a new government organized in such manner as to effect our Lives, our Liberty, and our pursuit of Happiness, and assure us that these principals are saved for our posterity; and

          WHEREAS, We, the Sovereign Citizens fully recognize the Constitution that was submitted to the States for their ratification and approval on September 17, 1787 as the true Constitution, and the only Constitution that validly exists for our united States of America; and

          WHEREAS, We, the Sovereign Citizens recognize the first TEN (10) Amendments to the said Constitution, which Amendments are referred to as the “Bill of Rights.” We specically ban Congress and any State Legislature from doing any we do not recognize the 14th Amendment and the 16th Amendment as having been properly ratified and hereby remove them from the Constitution. We hereby declare the 17th Amendment was proposed and ratified in order to limit the power and control of the States over the Federal Government, therefore the 17th Amendment will no longer be a part of the Constitution for the united States of America. In order to restrict and control any and all interference from foreign governments or powers, We, the Sovereign Citizens hereby restore the true 13th Amendment to its rightful position as a valid Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America.

          If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the united States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them. – True 13th Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America

          WHEREAS. all of the provisions in each and every Constitution We have written are either Mandatory, or Prohibitory. Which We declare to mean that if an action is mandated in one of our Constitutions by We, the Sovereign Citizens, it must be done, and if a power or authority is not granted, it cannot be done. Let us be very clear, “None of the various Governements that have been created by We, the Sovereign Citizens, has any inherent power to do anything other that what We, the Sovereign Citizens have specifically dictated they do; and

          WHEREAS, the Supreme Court of the United States fully understands, and concurs with We, the Solvereign People, in its ruling, that no government has any inherent power to do anything other than the things that are specifically mandated by We, the Sovereign Citizens, in our various Constitutions

          Congress can exercise no power by virtue of any supposed inherent sovereignty in the general government. Indeed it may be doubted whether the power can be correctly said to appertain to sovereignty in any proper sense, as an attribute of an independent political community. The power to commit violence, perpetrate injustice, take private property by force without compensation to the owner, and compel the receipt of promises to pay in place of money, may be exercised, as it often has been, by irresponsible authority, but it cannot be considered as belonging to a government founded upon law. But be that as it may, there is no such thing as a power of inherent sovereignty in the government of the United States. It is a government of delegated powers, supreme within its prescribed sphere but powerless outside of it. In this country, sovereignty resides in the people, and Congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their Constitution, entrusted to it; all else is withheld. – Justice Field – Legal Tender Case, Julliard vs Greenman – 110 U.S. 421 (1884); and

          WHEREAS, many of our Public Servants have run rampant in devising and establishing various departments, divisions, and other government functions that have no basis in any of our Constitutions, and in many cases are devised for the sole purpose of meeting some pre-conceived notion of benefitting themselves, or select members of society, to the detriment of We, the Sovereign People,

          NOW, THEREFORE, in order to regain the total and complete control over our several governments, We, the Sovereign Citizens do hereby declare the reestablishment of our Superior Common Law Court for each State Republic, with all of the power, authority, and rights that We, the Sovereign Citizens hold in administering the functions and actions of our own Governments and of our Superior Common Law Courts.

          WE FIRMLY DECLARE that the Common Law belongs to the People, for their exclusive use in all matters concerning our Life, our Liberty, and our Pursuit of Happiness, the exact same unalienable rights that were given to us by our Creator.

          None of the governments that we have created, and therefore, none of the courts created under our various Constitutions, hold any powers of Common Law, and therefore cannot make any ruling concerning any of our unalienable rights from our Creator.

          It must be pointed out that in a Common Law Court there is no Judge, there are the 12 justices who comprise the jury. Also, there are no Attorneys. Each person who is a party to a dispute must answer the questions posed by the Justices, for himself, or herself. Thus a Common Law Court really is a Trial by Jury as We the People set forth and required in our Federal Constitution.

          The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by jury; and such trial shall be held in the state where the said crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any state, the trial shall be at such place or places as the Congress may by law have directed – Article 3, Section 2, Paragraph 3 – Constitution for the United States of America

          Even the Supreme Court acknowledges the fact that the Constitution does not grant any rights to the Common Laws, which are the very basis of all laws in this Country.

          There is no federal general common law. Congress has no power to declare substantive rules of common law applicable in a state whether they be local in their nature or ‘general,’ be they commercial law or a part of the law of torts. And no clause in the Constitution purports to confer such a power upon the federal courts. – – Erie R.R. Co. v. Tompkins, 304 U.S. 64 (1938)

          We also point out that the only law enforcement powers granted by We, the People, in the Federal Constitution, and in the various State Constitutions is to our State Militias. No Government has the power, or the authority, or the right to create any other law enforcement entity.

          The words, Police, Sheriff, Marshal, Deputy, Prosecutor and Prison do not appear in our Federal Constitution. And no alternate form of those words appears. We, the People, did not give any government the power, or the authority to prosecute, or persecute, us in any way, and yet, the Federal Government, as well as many State Governments, have seen fit to create a virtual police state with a massive prison system, all of which is unconstitutional.

          You also need to be aware of the fact that there are only three crimes that the Federal Government has the power to prosecute. These are:
          • Counterfeiting the current coins and securities of the United States
          ▸ Federal Reserve Notes, issued by the Privately owned Federal Reserve Bank are not Current Coins or Securities of the United States, and no reproduction of them will be classed as counterfeiting the current coins or securities of the United States.
          ▸ We, the Sovereign Citizens mandated the right to coin money, but granted no right to print money.
          • To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the High Seas
          ▸ This power was granted in order to protect and defend our sea going trade, which was all we had in the way of International dealings.
          • Offenses against the Law of Nations
          ▸ This power was granted to assure other countries that we intended to be a full fledged member of the International consortium of nations.

          The following citations from the Constitution are the only provisions for the Federal Government to prosecute anyone.

          To provide for the punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States: Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 6, Constitution for the United States of America

          To define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations: Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 10, Constitution for the United States of America

          The office of Sheriff existed in the colonies before the ratification of our Constitution, and in England, going all the way back to the “Magna Charta” in 1215.

          We, the Sovereign Citizens specifically reprimand the various State legistlatures and the several Governors for their failure to comply with our Constitutional mandate to establish, arm, and train the Militia. The establishment of the several State Militias, with all of their proper powers and authority, will be among the first actions taken by us.

          We, the Citizens, are entitled to have proper, lawful, law enforcement officers execute the laws of the land, suppress insurrections and especially repel invasions such as the invasion of illegal aliens which is now going on among us.

          In order to enforce the establishment of the Militia, We, the Sovereign Citizens, do hereby establish the rule that each and every member of the Militia must have his, or her, own gun, or be subject to a fine of FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($5,000.00) and SIX (6) months in the County Jail. It is not right that a Militia Member should expect other Militia Members to protect and defend them. The Militia is charged with protecting and defending all of the Citizens, and each Militia Member must be fully prepared to discharge their duty. Neither the Federal Congress, or any of the State Legislatures, shall have the right to modify, or change, this rule in any manner, and, there shall not be any qualification check for the purchase of a gun, and the guns must not be registered in any manner. Any and all gun registration records must be destroyed immediately.

          We, the People, hereby mandate that our duly elected County Sheriff is, and will be, under the control and direction of the branch of the Superior Common Law Court for each County, and will be the individual in charge of the Militia for the County. The Sheriff is the highest ranking, elected, law enforcement officer in a County and no law enforcement activity, of any kind may occur within the County without his express permission.

          The militia shall consist of all able-bodied male inhabitants of the State, between the ages of eighteen and sixty-five years, except such as are exempted by law. We further expand upon this concept in that we open the Militia to any woman in the same age bracket who wants to participate, and order that anyone who wants to continue membership after sixty-five years of age may do so, provided they are in good health.

          The Governor shall be Commander-in-Chief of the military forces of the State. He shall work with the County Sheriffs to train and arm the Militia and, when necessary, to call out the militia to execute the laws of the Nation, or of the State, to suppress insurrection, or to repel invasion.

          The actions of We, the Sovereign Citizens, shall not, and will not, be classified as any type or form of insurrection.

          We, the People, have been carefully taught by those who would exert their will over us, that the Militia, and the Common Law Courts, no longer exist.

          Nothing could be further from the truth. Article 7 of the Bill of Rights is still in full force and effect, and it says that decisions by the Superior Common Law Court cannot be reviewed by any other court, and the provisions in the various Constitutions concerning the Militia have never been changed.

          The corrupt politicians, attorneys, judges, and bureaucrats know that they must destroy the truth behind the concepts of the Common Law and the Militias in order to leave the Citizens powerless and unable to protect and defend themselves. The last thing to go before we are completely dominated, is our right to bear arms, and, in spite of the clear mandate against any gun laws, they are doing everything in their power to get rid of our guns.

          A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. – Second Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America

          We want to make it very clear that the most basic unalienable right given to us by our Father in Heaven is the right to protect and defend ourselves. Without that right, all of the other rights become meaningless because they can be taken from us by corrupt and evil men and women. Our right to defend ourselves is the underlying reason that our unalienable rights cannot, and should not, be bothered. We, the Sovereign Citizens, want to point out that:

          WITH THIS PUBLIC NOTICE,
          WE, THE SOVEREIGN CITIZENS OF THE VARIOUS STATE REPUBLICS,
          HAVE ALREADY RESTORED OUR REPUBLIC,
          AND WE WILL CONTROL THE ACTIVITIES OF OUR REPUBLIC
          THROUGH OUR USE OF OUR SUPERIOR COMMON LAW COURTS,
          OUR COUNTY SHERIFFS, AND THE MILITIA, FROM THIS TIME FORWARD ! ! !

          If you are currently holding a public office and do not want to work with us,
          you are welcome to resign immediately.

          Those Sovereign Citizens who want to add their voices to this action, can send an e-mail with their name, address, and phone number to [email protected] and join with us.

          There were several million “conservative” Evangelicals who would rather lose their (and our) freedoms (of religion, of speech, to carry arms, and many others) than vote for a “Mormon”.. Jesus spoke about the self righteous crowd, but they will not see themselves in His parables and teachings.

          It wasn’t the “sacrilegious”, it was the hyper-religious, the scribes and Pharisees of our time, who condemned us to four more years (at the very least, probably four more lifetimes) of desecration of liberty.

          Mr. O’bama, will there ever b>be any Jobs?

        • We have a president who is not even eligible to be in that office! No one did their research. If he has never been elected in the first place our country would be in a far better place. Obama was on the original group in Chicago that was pushing for ‘climate change’, strictly as a way to make tons more money for them, and still is! Remember Al Gore! Scientists have determined that any climate change stopped sixteen years ago!

      Electrical rates have gone up. All you people that are considering Geo-Thermal….think twice. Electric companies charge more for Geo-Thermal than regular heating. I thought I would save by going all electrical. Don’t believe it as they ran the story in the newspaper that they were given the go-ahead to charge more for GT. Before you select GT find out the cost for the sq.ft. you have and get it in writing if its too good to pass up. In my other home, I was paying a lot less & it was propane & elec.

      • LarryAndy says:

        my rates have vone up 86.7% since Obama, not up to his doubling yet, we are on all electric, no gas, etc. available and cannot use Propane as the heater is in the basement where there is no escape for any possible leaks, so agains the law, and common sense. Since all electric we are on commercial rates, this has pushed our electric bill from about $200 to nearly $400, we use no air conditioning but do have some fans, we have not used heat in 2 years but use fire wood, still using washing machine and dryer, hand wash dishes. Have a refridgerator and freezer, etc. I have 5 children with on severely handicapped and is on an air revolving mattress, with electric, gas costs for cars doubling, food costs up, etc. there is baerly enough to survive without frills. I still have water rights from seasonal canal for trees and pasture, see no hope ahead.

    No surprise here. If we exploit our energy reserves, then the economy grows and there is more wealth and then we can invest in other forms of energy.

          i totally agree with you and i do not know why the republicans are not looking into this..everyone should post any voter fraud they witnessed in this election, military votes not counted etc..if they really looked into it, i bet they could prove it! instead they sit around on the tv and scratch their heads trying to figure out if they have to blame a group like the tea party(patriots all) or should give amnesty to illegals, etc..the only one fighting is allen west in fla and so far, he is ahead thanks to his dilligence! go west!!!

Now for the lesson of experience–CONSEQUENCES–when they have to pay for higher taxes and obviously gas prices which is destined to spiral in an already ailing economy, along with higher food prices. When business begin laying off with a domino effect because of burdensome taxes and regulations and these libs have to stand in the unemployment line, than they can look back and blame whoever they want and what good will it do them then…..get ready for the ride—the United States IS headed for a deep recession and sorry but this is what the IDIOTS VOTED FOR…hope they like it.

      You are right about that. I read that in the papers early in 2012. China is supposedly supposed to be building a big plant, but the people are blocking it by refusing to give China a building permit. However, BOZO will stick his stupid nose in and demand one. You can bet that China will win.

    More layoffs to come. Those who voted for Obama I hope you all are happy that companies all around the country are laying off people. All I can say is to all businesses you better layoff people and cut peoples hours to protect your selves and and those who need a job well it isn’t going to happen and you can thank the stupid voters for re-electing the Santa Claus in the Oval Office. I guess those people need have to go on welfare and get their freeeeeee stuff. I blame the voters in this country for their stupid , naive choices to elect Obama who is anti business and coal and oil which alot of them are closing down. Everyone will have to start lighting candles to get light and rely on Obama’s solar and wind to heat your homes and cook. IF THIS PRESIDENT AND AL GORE CARE SO MUCH FOR THE PLANET THEN THEY NEED TO STOP FLYING AROUND IN THOSE POLLUTING JETS,PLANES. To me their hypocrites on this issue.

    The beginning of the end. Impeachment will not work in this case. It did nothing to Clinton. The idea is to subjugate the US into thinking and acting like a third world country. So far they are winning. I favor secession and restructuring leaving the misfit counties out. In time they will starve and be so ineffective that they will beg for readmission. Then the hard working real Americans will call the shots and enforce the real Constitution for all.

          And what does spelling have to do with learning how to be a human being? You are born a human being.

          Even the poster ginger could not spell Louisiana correctly. When a word is not spelled correctly a red line shows up under it. There is a way to get the correct spelling.

They have got a foothold, and hispanics refer to lower Texas as Little Mexico. They swim the Rio Grande or use an inflated boat to cross, and they walk across w/ a green card & never return to Mexico. In Wal-Mart parking lots they have police on scissor motorized stands so they can watch it all from high above (200ft+ in the air) for car theft, rape attempts, & burglary.
