Thank you for your straight shooting, accurate report on federal overreach. You are the ONLY reporter who's making the effort to report this accurately. Your video's capturing healthy attention on my Facebook. Roni Bell Sylvester. Thank you for giving us a podium.
We stand ready to give you the "facts."
Example: As an "Allotment Owner," the Hammonds own: The forage; trailways (easements); improvements and beneficial use of the water.
They have private (vested) property rights on federal land.
Using the "burning of their own grass" is an unfounded excuse for the complicit to execute a "takings without just compensation."
The judge's "retirement" was curious, in that we know of judge's in Colorado, who's "retired" immediately after making "water takings" decisions.
This "takings" formula is used lavishly by federal and their grant funded buddies; in particular in the states west of the 100th meridian with the most federal land.
We have substantiated reason to believe it's one of many ways they provide "unencumbered collateralization" for their loans from the private company known as the Federal Reserve.
In Colorado, State Senator Jerry Sonnenberg, has expressed sincere interest in sponsoring the Equal Standing bill (attached - and cut & pasted below). The Equal Standing bill is one substantive way we could at least dilute the unjust overreach by government employees.
Thank you again,

Equal Standing bill
Equal Standing Bill
Equal Protection from Personal Attack (Malicious Deprivation of Constitutional Rights) Act by Federal Employee
Please Note: This can be modified to incorporate any existing constitutional rights protection law, and re-adapted to any domestic resource industry.
Whereas the Legislature finds that the Livestock Sector of the Agriculture Industry of the State is a critical and significant portion of the Agriculture Industry of the State and necessary for the continued health, prosperity and well-being of the people of the State, and,
Whereas a significant number of Livestock within the State spend a significant part of their lives on Federal Range lands, and,
Whereas the US Supreme Court has held that Stockwater Rights, Range Rights, Right-of-Ways, and Improvements, appurtenant to or associated with Range Allotments are Property Rights worthy of protection under the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, and,
Whereas Federal Employees are required by the Fifth Amendment and Executive Order 12630 to consider the Takings Implications of their decisions and actions on the Property Rights of Deeded Private Property Owner, or Range Allotment Owners before taking those actions,
Therefore, be it resolved that whenever any Federal Employee acting under Color of Law, takes any action harmful to any Deeded Private Property Owner, or Range Allotment Owner on Federal Land in the State, that deprives that Owner of any property rights without first giving due consideration to those rights by:
1) accessing property with permission,
2) conducting a thorough Takings Implication Assessment,
3) giving the Owner due process, and
4) paying just compensation as required by law,
that Federal Employee shall be deemed to be in violation of the Constitutional Rights of the Deeded Private Property Owner, or Allotment Owner on Federal Land and acting outside the scope of any federally delegated authority, and therefore, outside the protection of any federal immunity from prosecution and therefore guilty of the crime of Malicious Deprivation of Constitutional Rights and shall be subject to both civil and criminal punishment under the Laws of the State. The violation of this Law shall be punishable as a Felony carrying a fine of up to $500,000 dollars and 5 years in prison for each separate offense.
