Accretion land, for those who may not know, is land – such as sand bars – laid down by a river when it's in flood. Although people whose land adjoins accretion land may use it for such purposes as grazing, it belongs to no one – since the next time the river floods, it could wash it away and deposit it somewhere farther downstream. Why would the BLM want to acquire accretion land. Obviously, they don't. Why then are they, like a school yard bully, daring the State of Texas to knock the stick off their shoulder?
The U.S. government is in confrontation with armed militiamen in Connecticut, in New York, and now in Nevada. They know they cannot possibly engage in open warfare with these groups without looking like the Gestapo they in fact are and inciting open rebellion across all 50 States. Their only hope is to discredit the militiamen through the weapon of the democratic process – AKA mob mobilization. If they can provoke an incident on the Texas/Oklahoma border that exposes Texas and Oklahoma militiamen to the disinformation manufacturing machine of the Managed State Media, they can paint the whole patriot movement as a bunch of wild-eyed anarchists engaged in anti-American rebellion and domestic terrorism.
My advice to Governor Rick Perry and Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst is to do all you can to tamp down the fervor of Texas patriots (of which I happen to be one) and attack the BLM through the courts. Court cases are not nearly as newsworthy as armed confrontations, and they take years to work their way to a conclusion – far longer than the attention span of the Democrat base. The government's intention here is clearly to provoke an incident they can milk to the disadvantage of Texas and the United States. Let's do everything we can to avoid assisting them in that effort.
Harry Reid recently warned, "It may not be tomorrow, but something will happen." Could this deceitful maneuver by Reid's former aide (now head of BLM) be what Harry had in mind?
