Most Americans would assume that when the United States faces significant threats the government would be keen to fight back on their behalf.
But the ruling class elites only care about that which will result in giving them more power and control over the working class.
And now the Biden regime is quietly working on a plan to allow massive corporations to engage in a complete takeover of rural America.
This week, the Biden regime decided to allow a billionaire-backed organization to lease federal lands for non-agricultural uses.
And the state of Montana took legal action against it.
In a fiery motion filed with the Department of Interior’s Office of Hearings and Appeals, Montana argued that the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) 2022 rule prioritizes “conservation herds” over livestock production, negatively impacting rural ranching communities and attacking the fabric of the state.
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen didn’t mince words.
“The BLM’s final decision granting a general use permit to graze bison is a direct attack on rural communities — attacks that have become a hallmark of the Biden Administration,” Knudsen said.
Knudsen further criticized the BLM for its disregard of local voices and laws.
The crux of the issue lies in BLM’s decision to permit the American Prairie Reserve (APR) to graze bison on federal lands.
APR has been in the process of creating a massive “habitat base” of nearly 461,000 acres in Montana through a combination of private ownership and leasing.
The group’s vision is to create a vast ecosystem connecting private and leased lands to the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge.
While APR argues that this conservation effort is fueled by private philanthropy and voluntary land exchanges, critics, including state officials and local ranchers, fear that the reserve’s activities will hinder agricultural production and negatively impact the region’s economy.
The proposal to release wild bison onto the property has drawn particular concern, as opponents worry about the spread of diseases like brucellosis to surrounding livestock.
Montana’s motion for summary judgment challenges BLM’s decision, highlighting its potential to circumvent laws and regulations.
The state contends that BLM’s reclassification of bison as “domestic indigenous livestock” to issue general grazing permits is both legally and logically flawed.
In response, APR maintains its commitment to its mission.
“We’re not asking the federal government to create anything, we’re not asking the federal government for any money,” APR Vice President Pete Geddes said. “We’re engaged in private philanthropy and voluntary exchange by buying ranches from people who would like to sell that to us.”
As the legal battle unfolds, it underscores the larger clash between conservation efforts and agricultural interests.
Montana’s pushback against the Biden regime’s decisions is seen as a rallying point for conservatives who prioritize property rights and the economic well-being of rural communities.
The battle over these lands is emblematic of the deep-seated divide between the federal government’s actions and the values cherished by many hard-working Americans.
The case represents the struggle to maintain a balance between environmental preservation and economic stability in rural America, a topic that continues to fuel debates across the nation.
As the legal proceedings continue, Montana’s fight against what it perceives as a federal overreach serves as a testament to the resilience of conservative voices standing up for their values, rights, and the rural way of life they hold dear.
