NorthWest Liberty News: Operation Wildlife Rescue

The American Rancher: A True Conservationist

Who better to manage the land than the person who works the land for a living?

Operation Wildlife Rescue

by Jim White

I have recently returned from spending the better part of a week in the Ruby Valley, and many of the surrounding valleys, in the Northern part of Nevada.  My goal was to examine the plight of the Nevada Rancher, and to get an idea as to how well the Federal Government, via the Bureau of Land Management, is managing the wildlife that they so aggressively protect against us evil humans.  Although I was only in Nevada for just under a week, two things became abundantly clear; the American Rancher is under attack, and has been for quite some time now, and in areas managed by the BLM the animals are either dying or have just left.  As history would indicate with Obamacare, TSA, disaster relief etc., anytime the Federal Government gets involved in a project the level of service goes way down and the prices skyrocket.  The situation with the BLM in the Western United States is no different, as the mismanagement has reached epic proportions.

The Wildlife is Suffering from Mismanagement

As I began this project, the name that I planned on using was, “Operation Rancher Rescue.”  However, as I continued to meet with one rancher after another I quickly realized that it is the wildlife that needs to be rescued; as the rancher just needs to be left alone by the Feds to manage the land as they have for generations.  The concept that someone who studied at a university, someone who has likely not even visited the many valleys in Central and Northern Nevada, can make a decision that better suits the land and wildlife than the rancher who spends 6 days a week on the same land is ludicrous.  The evidence is pretty clear… the Feds are just as inept at land management as they are everything else.

Dissent and Be Crushed

Many who will read this article will be familiar with the most recent cases of Ranchers standing up to the Feds and being either murdered like LaVoy Finicum, or locked up like the Bundy men and their associates.  The entire “land grab” operation being conducted by the BLM, and their surrogates, would make John Gotti proud; as the entire organization employs mafia-style tactics, including their own “code of silence;” while ranchers are being systematically eliminated from their lands without a voice.  It is time for that to change, for over the course of the next few months, and beyond, NorthWest Liberty News will be that voice.  I have already interviewed numerous ranchers who have been victimized by the Federal Government, and I have many more lined up to interview.  Please take the time to watch the first video in the series below.  The person in the video, Scott Raine, has impeccable credentials and tremendous experience.  By the time it’s over, you will get a good idea of how we are being deceived by the very government that is supposed to be looking out for us.

  1. Although I agree with the article and what it represents, it was too painful to watch Scott Raine trying to think of what to say. He had some good points and facts but it seemed he was grasping straws out of thin air too many times. Who is going to sit through a half hour of this? The purpose of this article and video is to bring to public attention the qualifications of land management that the local ranchers have as oppose to the federal machine! This is where editing comes to the rescue. Even if you have to use quick cuts around the painful parts at least you will bring out the important parts and keep people’s attention and wanting to find out more.

  2. Thanks, Elias. Stories like this can’t be told enough. As a cattle rancher and logger I’ve seen the heavy hand of fedguv and it’s effects on the land. And with the Waters of the United States rules being enforced, landowners now have the unelected bureaucrats at the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers to deal with too.

    The simple fact is that our government wants it’s people off the land. They think they know best.

  3. The government started in the 1970’s moving people off the land and into the cities. I went to college for Forestry but had to take a new career path because the eco-terrorists basically shut the timber/paper industry down in the northeast during the 70’s and 80’s. Now the trees sit on the stump and rot especially in places like the Adirondacks where I first worked. Jobs are scarce and people rely on government programs to survive. The ecosystem is so jacked up that you cannot take much of a living off the land like we did when I was growing up. Fish and small game are not plentiful under government management of the forests.

  4. Bureaucrats have no ownership in anything but their paycheck. They are given an inch of power and they take a mile. Their overreach is pervasive and invasive. The anthropogenic global warming (AGW), aka catastrophic anthropogenci global warming, aka climate change, is another of their huge lies as a means to control and rob the public. The government manipulates, destroys and locks up actual data to deceive us. Also look at the lies about the numbers of wolves that have spread throughout the northwest that are devastating livestock and wildlife. They minimize the impact and numbers.

    Every aspect of government is out of control and corrupt. We don’t need any more agencies than we had 240 years ago.
