Now suddenly comes the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) claiming that 600 acres of Aderholt's land adjoining the river belongs to the federal government. That 600 acres not only comprises half the Aderholts' land, it contains the Aderholts' house and barns.
“The BLM" Aderholt said "is saying we should have never had a deed to [that land]. That Texas should have never produced that deed,”
Why is the federal government interested in seizing 600 acres of land from a small rancher in northern Texas?
Wilbarger County boasts a population of 14,676 – over 78% White and less than 9% Black – with a median household income of $29,500. The County has 2 zip codes and 1 telephone area code. A Confederate Soldier monument is still proudly displayed in front of the Wilbarger County Courthouse in Vernon, a town of 11,000.
Wilbarger County is one county removed from Childress County, where Childress City Police Chief Adrian Garcia was recently attacked by the Freedom From Religion Foundation for displaying our national motto "In God we trust" on the town's police cars.
In short, Wilbarger County is a hotbed of Americans – a colony of those conservative, independent, self-sufficient, gun loving bible thumpers that must be eliminated if we are to fundamentally transform America. And it is, therefore, the perfect place to stage a red herring land grab to incite a conservative reaction that can be media hyped into an armed rebellion against federal authority.
Back in late April 2014, following Harry Reid's ignominious defeat in his attempt to use the BLM to misappropriate the land of Cliven Bundy in Clark County Nevada, the BLM threatened to seize accretion land along the Red River in Texas and Oklahoma. On 25 April I wrote the following on my blog:
This latest attempt to seize the land of Ken Aderholt is clearly a red herring to incite a grass roots rebellion. The U.S. government has no use for 600 acres of Texas land on the south shore of the Red River. And they have offered no proof that the land belongs to them or ever did belong to them. Furthermore, under adverse possession laws of the State of Texas, they have no legal claim to the land even if it did belong to them.
The operable statute here is Tex.Civ.Prac. & Rem. Code § 16.025, which states:
(a) (a) A person [i.e., the original owner] must bring suit no later than five years after the day the cause of action accrues to recover real property held in peaceable and adverse possession by someone who:
(1) cultivates, uses, or enjoys the property;
(2) pays applicable taxes on the property; and
(3) claims the property under a duly registered deed.
This BLM Gestapo maneuver is the "It may not be tomorrow, but something will happen" that Harry Reid promised 18 months ago. This is Harry Reid's revenge against the armed patriots who thwarted his scheme to steal Cliven Bundy's land and sell it to a Communist Chinese company.
It is imperative that the State of Texas get involved in this obvious land grab, both in the interests of justice and to keep the peace. Governor Abbott should dispatch the Texas National Guard to Wilbarger County to preclude any community reaction against the BLM and to secure Ken Aderholt's land pending proper legal proceedings. Texas Attorney General Paxton should immediately bring suit against the BLM in Texas Court.
It is our duty as Texans to protect the property of our citizens and to prevent Harry Reid from starting a min-civil war in our State.
