Welcome to my ranch. Today's ranch woman does more than ride horses, drive farm machinery and cook. We fight for our freedom. I've been forced to put these first loves on the back burner and now wear the name "activist". Federal overreach is destroying our way of life- America's food producers. It's a daily battle, I'm here to educate you on that war.

"I wrote this post in Sept of 2014...just came across it and noticed I hadn't published it guess I became sidetracked. We now have a new administration I'm hoping will stop some of this madness in it's tacks"
I do a lot of Facebook postings, nearly everyday. I use it predominately to educate fellow landowners and producers of the dangers of losing their private property rights. We are losing those rights and most grassroots landowners are unaware of the incremental, strategic, dismantling going on under their noses. These postings appear to be all over the place and I apologize. but you understand if you're keeping up with the multitude of attacks on producers of " once upon a time "... affordable food... aka land owners, animal owners, water owners/users, air inhalers, methane expellers (cattle- any way that's what the Climate Hub "consultant" revealed in the OETA Horizon clip I shared yesterday), dust stirring, antibiotic administering (to save the food supply---we're suppose to vaccinate kids but not cattle?), cattle branding (to keep track of the food supply) criminals...or so it would seem in the eyes of this administration.Whether the tool being used is the unattainable "sustainable triple bottom line "HSUS whose MO is not limited to emotion triggering advertisements to garner funds to advance their agenda but also undercover videos and the long arm of government agencies such as EPA, ESA, NRCS, DOJ, HUD, HHS (see their 100Point Change Agenda below for a complete list)Advancers...implementers ...consultants... facilitators....navigators are all being used to regulate and enforce this central control agenda which will destroy private property rights. The food supply is only one of the resource areas being destroyed or controlled: health care, education, energy, media, banking, transportation. Those advancing this Marxist style agenda will not be satisfied until they bring home a trophy inscribed"1st Place"America Freedom Resource Destroyer.
From the threatened and endangered Lesser Prairie Chicken, Long Eared Bat, Arkansas Shiner and the other several thousand ES listings to the 7 National Climate Hubs recently unveiled these ideas, groups, programs, individuals are all pawns, programs and processes in an elaborately evil designed scheme to destroy America's affordable food supply or control it take your pick by stripping private property rights.
Yes, I am all over the place; producers deal with each area under attack. .
Why does this matter to you? When America's producers can't profitably producethey go out of business (thousands of pork and poultry producers have already vanished due to overreaching regulations...this happened while America slept or watched Twilight)when they go out of business food costs rise, when food costs rise you have to stop spending in other areas so you can have enough money to feed your family...food is pretty important especially affordable food.Food prices have risen dramatically in the last few years due to these overreaching regulations...add a drought, fuel/ equipment/repair costs sky rocketing and America's food producers disappear.Refresh your memory of how food sources are destroyed with a peek back at the Valley Hope Forgot you can find it on YouTube.Why am I regurgitating this mantra...this same information?It matters to you...it is what is incrementally dismantling America's food supply. Those waging war against our freedom aren't carrying fire arms instead they implement agendas, thoughts, ideas;inject words, twist meanings, change legislation:Climate Change, Global Warming, Climate Hubs, Sustainability, Triple Bottom Line, Socially Acceptable, Environmentally Acceptable, Best Available Science, Best Management Practices, Modern, Human Capital...all verbiage designed to destroy freedom and America's affordable food supply and freedom.
I will continue to share four links with you: (1) Coverage on the 92 page senate report revealing the Billionaire's Club Scandal and connection to Sierra Club, World Wildlife Fund, Nature's Conservancy and EPA's overreaching regulations and I will add HSUS because they are tied to these organizations.Why? Because this report could stop the entire mess, all of the regulations on producers could be terminated, the Climate Hubs stopped; however our Ag media has failed to report on it. It is covered extensively in the mainstream media but controlling forces it appears have halted the coverage within the agriculture realm. Why? Because some of these groups are actively involved in some of our industry organization's decision making.Certain Ag media has been used to propagandize this global, sustainable, socially acceptable, green agenda and it needs to stop it is detrimental to American producer's ability to produce.(2) Coverage on the Climate Hubs.Wilkow's link that I've been sharing does the best job at connecting all of these attacks to the 10 Planks of Communism. http://fentonteaparty.com/FPA/?p=788 These hubs are agenda driven and are designed to create regulations determined through research. This research "with a twist" will ultimately become the norm, set precedence be required practices for farmers and ranchers.The data and information gathered will be filtered down through the NRCS.This info is tied to the Farm Bill (Conservation Portion) and they will do everything in their power to nudge us into abiding by the research. (3) I will continue to share a piece by the Noble Foundation that explains the climate hubs.This piece shows the confusion and questions that accompany these hubs; many unfamiliar terms with opened ended meanings allow for as a friend lawyer said after reading it, "do whatever they want to do". (4) Joan Veon's Youtube video on Public Private Partnerships.This video reveals why this is all happening.Partnerships between the federal government-Public- in the form of USDA, ESA, EPA etc. and large corporations -Private- (global companies such asJohn Deere, Gates Foundation etc. andextreme environmental groups with an agenda WWF, Sierra Club etal) have created a way for destructiveagendas to be driven through changes in legislation leaving the American producer adrift in burdensome regulations.
American producer, landowner, feedlot owner, organization leader you must KNOW this stuff. Our kids and grandkids will not have a future if we refuse to connect these dots...hit this in a unified way and stop the destruction.
I would say I would report on WOTUS as well but our organizations are unified on that issue and fighting tooth and nail to keep EPA's overreach of water rights at bay. We have until October 21st (I believe that is the deadline) to comment on Waters of the U.S. and would urge each and every citizen to do that...it affects all Americans not only farmers and ranchers.If you have a low spot in your yard that holds water only once in a while, it will belong to the federal government under WOTUS...this affect you.
AND one more thought...If our ag industry organization leaders would form a loose coalition ...one that will not morph into a "self-licking" ice cream cone which we've seen happen in the past with many well intended coalitions…I have several in mind...and address the 92 page senate report/ EPA/ WWF/Sierra Club scandal together we could put EPA to bed and not have to worry about WOTUS.
Cease from Anger.
That’s what my daughters suggested I do when one of them had the idea that we exchange New Year’s resolution recommendations for each other. Brad thought that was a bad idea, but we did it anyway.
They think I’ve been overly distressed. A little angry. Afraid I’m going to “stroke out.”
Well I probably am, have been, will continue to be, will try and work on it, and probably will.
But I’m betting that anyone that realizes what’s going on in our country is probably feeling pretty angry right now too. If not, ignorance is bliss, or they have a government job.
I’ve experienced a lot of emotions during my life: sadness, jealousy, embarrassment, fear, and anger to some degree.
Anger doesn’t just occur. It stems from something. I believe in my case it’s fear and frustration.
I grew up during the Cold War. Nothing was more feared than the A bomb during the 50’s and nothing scared me more than the “test” performed daily on our black and white T.V. suggesting that “i…
This is my backyard. This is our office. It's located in my backyard. So are the loading chutes, sheds, barns, silos and molasses tanks (tanks full of molasses that cattle find extremely tasty and nutritious.) Loading cattle here has been a common sight for as long as I can remember.
Tonight we loaded bulls. It started to snow when they were loading. I hope the driver and the bulls get to their destination safely.
The bulls have been in my backyard for several weeks. Getting fat. Getting ready to go north. Getting ready to...uh... go to slaughter, or should I say "harvest." Not too long ago that word reminded me of wheat. Kind of like the word "gay" used to make me think of someone happy.
Anyway, today our "politically correct" friends recommend we don't refer to the word that actually describes what has taken place since Adam and Eve. The word that describes what has taken place for centuries to insure human survival. No, today we mus…
I’m back…for a while, barring I don’t slip on another
tutu or fall over another tombstone. The morning after Easter 5:45 a.m. to be exact, I slipped on
a princess tutu and tore my rotator cuff. In June I had surgery and spent the summer
going to physical therapy three times a week 60 miles away.In August my Grandmother Hazel passed
away.She had lived a long, happy,
successful, life.She was 96 years old
and it was hard to say goodbye to one of my best friends. My shoulder was on the mend, but at Grandma’s graveside service I fell over
a tombstone.During the service I’d been
watching near misses and worried about someone tripping over the one on my end
of the tent.I didn’t realize there was
another on the other end.Remember I
have 10 grandkids, 7 of them under the age of 7.I had my hands full of water bottles, mine
and theirs. As I hurried out of the tent to speak to some relatives I fell
head, neck and face first over the tombstone my rear and high heels in the air
and my mouth full of …
