BLM Federal Thugs attempting to steal another Rancher’s Land in Texas

After failing in their attempt to steal a Nevada Rancher’s land last week, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is now setting their sights on ranchers in other areas of the country.

Tommy Henderson, a lifelong rancher in Texas, is locked in a vicious battle with the BLM who is trying to seize his 90,000 acres or land. Unlike the showdown in Nevada – where BLM officials claim Cliven Bundy has failed to pay them, what in my opinion are illegal land fees to begin with – Henderson has faithfully paid all federal fees, taxes and even has a legal deed to the disputed land.

But that isn’t stopping the BLM from going after the rancher.

In an attempt to steal this rancher’s land, and claim it for the Federal Government, the BLM is attempting to redraw the Texas/Oklahoma state line, so they can nullify the rancher’s legal deed to the land. Because the Red River splits the boundary between the two states, and that river has eroded some of the Texas land over time, the BLM is attempting to use that erosion to say the rancher’s land now falls inside of Oklahoma.

Tommy Henderson, who is facing the very real possibility of losing his ranch, commented on his battle with the BLM:

“How can BLM come in and say, ‘Hey, this isn’t yours.’ Even though it’s patented from the state, you’ve always paid taxes on it. Our family paid taxes for over 100 years on this place. We’ve got a deed to it. But yet they walked in and said it wasn’t ours. Originally, here the river was out there where it is now and it eroded and accreted up to here, and then it eroded and accreted back. Well, their interpretation is that it eroded up to here but avulsed back. So when you listen to them it is always erosion to the south because the property line follows it then, but it’s always avulsion when it goes north. So the boundary can move south but it can never move back north.”

If the BLM is able to use this bogus legal maneuver, and redraw the state’s line, Henderson could find himself without a legal Texas deed to the land that will now fall inside Oklahoma – at least according to the federal government.

As we noted last week while covering the Bundy Ranch saga, the federal government has laid claim to much of the Western United States. In fact, in Nevada where the Bundy Ranch is still under siege, the Federal Government has claimed ownership of 84.5% of the State’s land.

As the map below shows, Federal intrusion into the Western States has created an environment where these States have very little power over their own land.

Here is what the federal government claims they own in the Western states:

Nevada: 84.5 percent
Alaska: 69.1 percent
Utah: 57.4 percent
Oregon: 53.1 percent
Idaho: 50.2 percent
Arizona: 48.1 percent
California: 45.3 percent
Wyoming: 42.4 percent
New Mexico: 41.8 percent
Colorado: 36.6 percent
Washington: 30.3 percent

  1. The bottom line is the big Govt. wants the ranchers to go away. It’s the same things they have been doing to the farmers for decades. Y’all should have paid attention then. It’s the fault of the American people for saying “that’s not my problem.” There’s a Shoshone man in northern NV that’s having his S.S.I. check garnished to pay these bastards off for grazing on land that was given to his people in a treaty. If you want to fix the problem of corporations taking over what was once a great country, now is not the time to take a stand. Yesterday was. And when you win, you still have to fight for the “everyman”. Otherwise, the same people that helped you this time will be dead and buried next time.

  2. who cares about a rich land hog. my family hasnt owned land for 3 generations now. I wish everyone had their home and land taken from them.

  3. Lord, God, Almighty, Please Protect this rancher and his family and his land and his livestock, home, etc. Lord, God, Almighty, Please Stop the BLM and any government entity and any persons from stealing this ranchers land.

  4. Lord, God, Almighty, Please Protect Cliven Bundy and his family and his home, land, livestock, any rights, etc. Please Protect him from anyone doing/using any deceit and trickery toward him and his family. Lord, God, Almighty, Please Stop the BLM and any government entity and any other persons from hurting him in any way.

  5. Lord, God, Almighty, Heavenly Father, Your Majesty, if the BLM is stealing land in Texas and tormenting/causing people anguish, then Please, Please, Please, Remove them from Texas.

  6. These ranchers who are attempting to defraud the US taxpayer should all be arrested! Clive Bundy has failed to pay taxes and grazing fees to the tune of more than a million dollars. He is no hero he is a fraud no better than an inner city welfare queen or dope peddler. This individual in Texas is trying to scam the US taxpayer out of public lands. I applaud law enforcement officers from the BLM and the prosecutors of the US Attorneys Office for fighting on behalf of the public. These ranchers are parasites and bums. As a law enforcement officer it would give me honor to investigate, arrest, and work toward the lawful prosecution of these folks.

    • Wow….What a pathetic way of thinking. Never call the law for ANYTHING! Your dog could be shot or somehow you end up arrested. Happens all the time. What a miserable person you have to be inside with all your ignorance and arrogance.
      What you aren’t realizing is with all the family ranchers goes the pasture grass fed beef leaving you with gmo grain fed commercial beef. The gmo rots their guts out. Perhaps this has eaten the frontal lobe of your brain.

  7. Texas Militia? Hah! Nothing that a well trained SWAT Team couldn’t handle.they would be disarmed, arrested, and locked up without a shot being fired! Trust me I have seen high SWAT Teams in action and a bunch of wahoo gun show commandos would get spanked on their butts and sent home to their wives as geldings!

    • one man to defending his home is more powerful than 10 hired soldiers, if you don’t believe this research the history of the Germans attacking during the Russian Front World War 2 do your research.

    • Yeah, your right because non of those “wahoo gun show commandos” ever served in the military… Go Suck Start an M9… tool!

  8. Lord, God, Almighty, if unjust laws and regulations are being set up and enforced, or if laws and regulations are being misapplied in ways that are cheating people out of their land, rights of use, easements/easeways, money or their other assets, then Lord, God, Almighty, Please Stop the Enforcement of these unjust laws, regulations, and Lord, God, Almighty, Please Change or Abolish these laws and regulations and Please Change the hearts and minds and actions of anyone who had been taking part in cheating people of their homes/land/rights/money etc. Please Give those who have been cheating people out of their land/ rights/homes/money/other assets, a chance to turn to You, Lord, God, Almighty. Please restore treble wealth,(as Zaccheus did to those he cheated) land, Blessings, etc., of whatever was taken/stolen from these people who many have been through so very much anguish and despair.
