Radical new Biden rule would ‘lock up’ federal lands

Joe Biden has made much use of executive orders, sometimes to make changes that would not be adopted by Congress.

For instance, among his many agenda points that he’s pursued simply by writing down what he wants, he’s worked to redefine the word “sex” in the nation’s legacy nondiscrimination laws to include “gender identity” and such.

Essentially, his agenda has argued that members of Congress, when they adopted a ban on sex discrimination decades ago, to protect women, they were proclaiming that transgenders must be treated as the sex they choose to represent themselves as being.

Now Biden is working to change the requirements established by Congress for the multiple use of public lands across much of the American West.

He wants to simply change a rule to satisfy his ideologies.

“This is an attempt by the Biden administration to end multiple use on public lands,” explained William Perry Pendley, who led the BLM during the Trump administration, to The Federalist.

A report at the publication noted that the Bureau of Land Management was working to “fundamentally reshape how public lands are managed” and it’s happening “without congressional approval.”

The Biden administration now is pushing for “conservation leases” a plan that is a radical change from established multiple use procedures, which allow for mineral development, tourism, ranching and many more options. Even ski resorts.

The report notes that federal law now requires federal lands be used in ways “best meet the present and future needs of the people.”

The new Biden rule would insist that the BLM, which oversees 245 million acres, mostly in the vast reaches of the American West, limit grazing and development options, letting the feds lease parcels of federal land to third parties who could restrict activities for decades.

Rocky Mountain Legal Foundation lawyer David McDonald told The Federalist it would be a “game changer,” allowing “conservation” plans to take priority over mining, timbering or more.

The new concept is vaguely worded, providing protections for such things as “landscapes.”

Pendley referenced Biden’s demands that he wants 30% of American lands and waterways locked up by 2030.

The report said Biden’s planned rule change could be a vehicle for that agenda.

McDonald warned that the agenda includes “a lot of different areas where they could be chipping away at people’s rights.”

He said ranchers with long histories of leasing property easily could lose out to wealthy environmental groups who would take over. Pendley said Biden’s changes would simply drive ranchers out of business.

The scheme probably shouldn’t have been a surprise. The report explained BLM chief Tracy Stone-Manning’s 1992 graduate thesis condemned public grazing.

She’s also known for promoting a Chinese-style limit on children, and for her ecoterrorism.

In fact, ranchers and farmers originally settled the West, and under their use, the land has been regenerating for generations.

House lawmakers already have started to campaign against the BLM.

In a letter, they wrote, “The administration’s proposal will have considerable implications, fundamentally changing the way the BLM carries out its multiple use and sustained yield mandate under the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976.”

“Their objective is to end all economic use of public lands,” Pendley told The Federalist of the Biden BLM proposal. “Does that mean recreation? I don’t know. It depends on what kind of recreation. I don’t think they like ski resorts.”

IMPORTANT NOTE: Although millions of American parents send their precious children off to public school every day, imagining their kids’ days will be filled with reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history, sports and music, they’re not only in for a shock – but for total BETRAYAL. Today’s “public” (government) schools have become far-left ideological, political and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America’s children.

Kids are being taught to HATE their own country and to see themselves and their parents as racists – or victims of racists. They are sexualized and corrupted, and many are groomed into the dark LGBT world, with almost 6,000 schools prohibiting parents from even hearing about their child’s transgender “transition.” In between all the far-left indoctrination and sexual corruption, teachers take time to scare children to death about the near-term end of life on earth due to “catastrophic climate change.” Another lie. But it’s all classic Marxism/communism, with even the “3 R’s” – reading, writing and arithmetic – now being corrupted with “woke,” “1984”-style madness.

Perhaps never has the true threat of today’s U.S. public school system been exposed as in the sensational April issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREATEST BETRAYAL: How Marxism and madness have taken over America’s public school system.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
