Supreme Court Hears Case of ‘Dream House’ Stopped by EPA

Since 2007, Mike and Chantell Sackett have been fighting to build their dream home on the Idaho lot they bought years ago. The Sacketts say they had gotten local permits and spent thousands prepping the land for construction – then the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) showed up.

The EPA told the Sacketts their property contained wetlands and issued a compliance order mandating that they return it to its original state or risk facing fines starting at $37,500 per day.

      “Wetlands” have been being used to deprive us of our liberty for a long time. It was going on in the Clinton years and apparently hasn’t slowed much since then.

      • Dingbat36

        I would surely like to see how they categorize these lands. We have land within our city limits categorized in this way which is dry as a bone year round. It might once have been “damp” but in the 42 years I have lived in this community, I have NEVER seen it “wet”!!

        Once deemed as such by either the State or the Fed, the label will no doubt last forever no matter the actual state of the property. More government insanity!!

            Do these people at the EPA not have more important things to do than to throw their weight around and try to intimidate the citizenry.
            Kagan needs to focus on the EPA’s value and not what ordinary citizens are doing !

            Obama has appointed many officials and given the EPA free reign over the counrtry. The earth is constantly changing and some regulations should no longer apply.

            The couple has been fighting this since 2007. What does that have to do with President Obama? It should say President Bush’s EPA.

          • Dennis

            This is the real problem.
            Not who was in charge.
            The Sacketts say they were stunned, and asked the EPA for a hearing on the matter.

            (The agency denied their request,)

            so the Sacketts decided to file a lawsuit.
            (The EPA has argued that the agency is equipped to handle complaints like the Sacketts through administrative procedures,) THEY DENIED THEIR REQUEST

            (and that landowners have no constitutional right )
            to proceed from a compliance order directly into federal court.

            What happen when they come along and say your home was built on wetlands 20 or 30 years age and you have to move and restore the land.
            Just keep letting them take your rights away.

          • Die Free

            What is this the peliclican brief. That involved marsh wetlands and court appointments. Sounds about the same thing here what is really there that the odummer gov thugs want to keep quite.

          • DocJohnM

            You have an insane man in the White House who wants no private ownership. Look up UN Agenda 21. In fact are there any sane “Czars” appointed by Obama?

          • Don Ingram

            EPA needs to be put in their place. They have way too much power over home owners, just like the Department Home land security has over the ordinary citizen here in the United States. These agencies need to be dissolved or put in their place by losing some of their powers that they have. Look at Home Land Security showing up at a Social; Security Office with fully automatic Weapons checking identification of citizens going in to a building owned by the folks who pay taxes just to take care of business. This country is going to sewer and it is just not Obama or his party causing this, it’s the republicans as well.

        • Harold Dean

          In a small rural subdivision that was built next to the rural property where I grew up, some friends were trying to obtain a permit to remodel their home. They ran into trouble because according to the permit agency, they lived in a flood plain. I testified in court for them that in all of my years, I had never seen what could be called uncontrolled flooding on the side of the road they were located on since it was about two feet higher than the other side. The other side frequently flooded and was not designated a flood plain. When I produced pictures taken at our residence in 1949 when the last flood occurred, the judge issued the order to correct the obvious error in their land plat. Doesn’t happen often, but justice prevailed

          we have ‘wetlands’ here in California as well. Mostly near the beaches. The wetland moniker can be run around as I see very large and expensive homes get built right on those wetlands, and the ‘wetlands’ moved back. Hmmmm……I guess with enough money even a wetland could become dryland. NOBODY IS BEING FOOLED HERE. ‘We the People’ KNOW politicians can be bought and owned or these expensive homes would not get to be built-PERIOD.

          • Linda

            I agree. I bought a beach house in 1985. It was across the street from a little beach. Right after I moved in; the city sold the beach property and three huge, “rich guy” houses
            were built right on the beach.They also gave variances to another person to build a house between myself and the gulf, so now all my ocean view is gone. I had to get on city sewer system but the new houses use septic systems.

          • yukonron

            As far a Ca goes, they can desinate anything as a wetland if there is standing water there for 8 days or more. It doesn’t matter that it has been raing for 7 of the last 8 days. Up here in Northern Ca, we have vernal pools, that fill up with water for about a month every year, and they are trying to stop the ranchers from grazing their cattle on these land because of the fairy shrimp. The main thing is that these lands have been being grazed for the last 180 years and there are still plenty of shrimp in these pools. Also, the lands where the pools exist, were lands that were grazed by elk and antelope long before Europeans arrived. They evolved to co-exist with this enviroment.

          • Dana Baxter

            Look up land patents. If everyone would take the time and effort to get a land patent for thier land they could tell the EPA where to go because the law would protect the landowner. Same goes for enminent domain. No entinty of government can even come on your land without your permission.

        • Jstarusa

          It will unless China wants to buy it…. from the government. They might even give it to them.

          The land in the photo appears to be dry. Even if it is designated “wetlands” the EPA has gone too far. The EPA is killing our edonomy and our freedom.

      • T-Texas

        I know this guy whose Dad was a rice farmer raised the elevation of some wet land for some use and was sued by the EPA and had to return the land back to the original elevation.This put him at extra expense for a lawyer and court cost.

        • New Orleans

          Hey, they might as well take all of New Orleans since it is so called wetlands. Here they hold the water back and then call it dry land. I see that they are taking ours freedom away because what they say goes.

      • Nancy

        All I have to say is “wetlands, yeah right.” If this were Florida, maybe down where wetlands actually exist. If the Supreme Court doesn’t rule in their favor, I have no faith in them (well now I have no faith in 4 out of the 9). And Kagan said to them, “why didn’t you just ask for a waiver for the wetlands.” They had the perfect response – “there are no wetlands on the property”!!

        Can’t beat logic.

        I watched a neighbor of ours a few years ago fill in the wetland that housed blue herons, ducks, and redwing black birds next to his house by putting in a gravel parking lot and a gargae for his dump trucks.. The only thing they did to him was a 10,000 fine… That’s it.. No stopping the construction and no one forced him to turn it back to wetland. How come it’s fine for some and not for others? The EPA did nothing to him, he got away with it scott free!

      • Dan Bongiorno

        I was Project Manager for the gov’t when we were building a Naval Training Center in South Carolina. The site for the building included “Wetlands.” We only had to work around the Wetlands and not disturb the animals who lived there.
        So they should be able to build their dream home as long as they adhere to these idiotic rules. I’m sure that on my project there was discussion behind the scenes that allowed the whole project to take place.

      More games by the Liberal/Communist/democrats to take our land and wealth. We conservatives need to create great wealth to defeat these Liberal/Communist. Get Dr. Michael Williams book “The Law of Attraction and the Subconscious Mind, 2nd Edition. We all need this book. Get a copy at or at Amazon or Barns and Noble online. The Liberals don’t want us Conservative to read this book, believe me. God Bless all Americans.

    • John Detwiler

      This Agency needs to be eliminated, it could be a great thing but who is to stop the people who make the agency decisions. There are to many cooky enviromentalists out there who have already inserted themselves in positions of power. But that and the arrogrant attitude of the just stated that the people have no recourse but to do exactly as the agency wishes without be permitted to sue displays this arragance. And Kagan’s statement demonstrates just how unfit to serve as a Supreme Court Justice, She is just another biased leftist with any truely legal experiance to draw upon.

      • libertybound

        If want to get rid of EPA then you better vote for Ron Paul because he is the only one who do anything about it. Newt Gingrich has already sided with Pelosi agreeing that we need cap and trade. No other candidate has talked about getting rid of the EPA. Ron Paul would also get rid of the problem by getting rid of the Federal Reserve, and go back to the gold standard and the silver standard across the world. This will help get rid of a bunch of problems including get rid of the IRS and all the abc agencies of the federal govt. None of the Candidate understand economics that well, Ron Paul does, I really fail to understand people reluctance to accept him. He believess in the constitution, he believes in the american people making the decisions rather than the federal govt. But you know what I do not think that the american people truly understand what true liberty really means. We have been so brainwashed; the United States Inc has been telling what to do our life we do not know how to think for ourselves anymore. I hope you ignorant amercians realize what a wonderful candidate and friend we have in Ron Paul, he puts his trust in the american people; we are not use to that, so much so that moist americans think he is nutzo. You ingnorant americans listen up and you listen up good, all the candidates are big govt bureaucrats all of them! If you vote for them your going to keep getting what we have been getting period!

        • DWAIN

          It is no secret why people areafraid of Paul.You can not be an isolationist in todays world.His talk on Iran’s nuclear ambitions,not helping Israel and comments on 911 make Him an idiot or else just a senile old man which I think it is as I do not think He is stupid.
          I will only vote for him if he gets the GOP nomination as even with His dumb foriegn policy plan He is still better than any thinh the Libs have to offer!

          • Herb

            Ron paul is not an isolationist, he is a non-interventionist.

            Huge difference.

            If we don’t get the government and govenrment debt under control, NOTHING else matters. None of the other candidates have any type of plan/idea of doing so.

          • http://cowboyByte nancy pearce

            I have commented on the danger of isilationism frequently only to be brought up to ridicule from those who say I am misusing the term. It is not isolationist they say, simply nonintervention. Potato Patahto. A world without either is a world waiting to combust. You cannot separate yourself from the rest of the world. It is neither wise or productive.

          • Ole Vet

            I shudder to contemplate our fate with the enemies we have currently in the world with Ron Paul as our leader! He feels we can negotiate with such as the N. Korea flake (sorry, the flake’s son, now, probably just like Dad!), the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Iran….in fact, most of the Islamic world! These only negotiate while they resupply, rebuild, and wait for an opportune moment to strike again, without warning!

            It’s the ‘ostrich’s head in the sand’ situation……if you can’t see them, they can’t see you! Only they CAN! And, you CAN’T! This is NO way to conduct foreign relationships. It didn’t work for Woodrow Wilson, and WWI caught us, anyway.

            Too many have been smoking wacky weed in Paul’s camp, and the euphoria makes these sheeple believe he can walk on water. To be sure, many of Ron Paul’s ideas for America are very good for it, and would solve many problems, and save us money at the same time.

            Should he be the Republican candidate, I will vote for him, but I pray that doesn’t happen! Unfortunately, all the choices have caveats; none is ideal. Also, unfortunately, if some voters’ favorite isn’t the candidate, they may refuse to vote at all, ensuring 4 more years for Obama & thugs to have enough time to destroy America!

        • Jack

          Some of Mr. Paul’s views are in line with my beliefs but not all of them. After reading your biased rant rife with poor spelling and grammar, I am even more against him. I am not an “ignorant American” as you state in your diatribe but carefully consider all candidates. I am also not “Nutzo”(whatever that terms implies). To me, your posting leaves me with an extreme distaste for anything to do with Mr. Paul. If you are a typical example of a Ron Paul follower, I want nothing to do with him or his faction. I cannot believe that Mr. Paul would espouse his views in such a way. Perhaps that is the reason he always an “also ran” candidate. What a sad way to draw fellow Americans to a candidate!

        • Bob

          I’m voting for Ron Paul no matter what. Many times I voted for the lesser of two evils, but not this time ! I’ve seen and heard enough B.S. from others that say what they think you want to hear, I’m not buying it anymore. I’ve been voting for almost 50 years and this is the first time I completly agree with a candidate that has proper values. Some people say I’m wasting my vote, he can’t win. I believe he can and should win for the future of our country. Don’t compromise anymore, vote for what you really believe in.

          • Tom K.

            Ron Paul no matter what ????

            I’m with ya Bob.
            Ron Paul 2012,
            He is the truth. He is the one that can put America back to work.
            He is the one that can get Americans back to working with and buying American made again.
            He is the one that can bring manufacturing back to America.
            He is the one that can bring industrie back to America.

            If you injoy what you have then vote for Romney or Santorum or Gingrich and watch America keep sinking.

      • Curry

        The EPA is unconstitutional; its powers authorize it to cross State boundaries in violation of constitutional law, States’ rights and State laws already in force; it acts without the consent of the Congress; it acts without the consent of State legislatures; it interferes with private property rights in violation of the 4th Amendment to the Bill of Rights.
        Now, keep this in mind: the federal constitution was not written for individual citizens: it was written to establish a central government with limited powers for the purpose of protecting what preexisted all civic government on this continent: our God-given, alienable rights. The Bill of Rights requires the federal government by constitutional law to be self-limiting – the Bill of Rights does not exist – never has – to “give” anyone their rights. We owned them before the Constitution and the Bill of Rights existed.
        Therefore, if this couple is appealing to the Supreme Court on the basis of “demanding” their rights under the Fourth Amendment, if they win they will not only have lost more than they sought to win, they will also have acted to put another nail in the constitutional coffin, that is, like “Heller” (Second Amendment case) the “victory” will reverse the principle of what the Bill of Rights was designed to accomplish and in legal fact cause ownership of that part of our God-given, alienable rights -in this case, private property – to belong to the federal government, which can reverse the ruling any time!

            You bring up an interesting point. We know that many in Congress are shameless traitors…my question is, “If the so-called conservatives running for the Republican nomination for president are all claiming to want to save the nation from the ravages of Obama et. al., then why are we not hearing from them loud and clear every day in every way that Obama himself has publicly admitted he is not a citizen? And why are these so-called conservatives not doing anything about this?”

    Sounds a little like Agenda 21 to me. Agenda 21 will be securing more and more land under the protection of the wetlands from being abused by the people. Soon there will be no land available for people to own and we will be rounded up and told where we can and cannot live. Visualize high rise apartments for all people to live in designated areas.

        Now they are after the petroleum companies in West Texas because of the habitat of the sagebrush lizard. Of course they have been around for about 200 million years, and the companies have been drilling for oil and natural gas in west Texas and eastern New Mexico since the early 1900s. And they are still around. I’m sure the EPA has done some good, but when the start telling folks where they can and can’t build their homes, they are going to far, and need to be defunded, or at least have their funding cut sharply.

Science has proven the Sun depletes itself at 2 1/2 to 3 feet per year at that rate we would have been about 300 miles closer to the Sun, water would boil and be sterile and no animal or plant life.

      There is wheat rancher in Kanas who was fine for farming a so called wetlands he still farms and in so many words told the epa TO GOTO HELL HE HAS NEVER PAID THE FINE AND the EPA has never tried to collect. Although they still harass him,the land regulations state that water standing for seven dats or moisture 36 inches below the surface of the ground constitutes wetlands, his property has niether critieror.for wetlands. The EPA would lose their case in a court of law and they know it.

          • Jek Silberstein

            Dear SC: It is too late, if you’re boarding the hopper cars. They have plumbing for gas, and the only arrivals at the FEMA camps may be bodies(–no escapes, no witnesses, no retrobution, no problem)! The refurbished furnaces at those FEMA-camps will burn the bodies, so no one can come forward someday and claim,”We were abused in the Camps (which, because no one came back from them, –they never existed, right?)”…Right now, FEMA is asking employment vendors for crews that can arrive to “manage” disposals as soon as they’re called for.–maybe overnight. 5 camps of from 300-1000 berths for a start. Those guards will then be used as a “core” for expansion for…more camps. Some…may be held for re-education, Red-Cross “inspection” or the murder is going to be SO dramatic, all those berths are for “re-cycle-ers” of debris into the atmosphere? They’d need 1-3 shifts of how many to handle 300-1000 workers, 30-100 guards/per shift x 2 or 3? But they can’t open them for now, because no hires wants to be “on notice”, waiting for the Martial-law-moment. The vendors are NOT asked for “spanish-speakers”, so the old dodge that the camps are for Mexican Nationals that’ve jumped the borders has been dropped. Those camps are for “t ts”, which, instead of being sent overseas indefinitely, like the German Jews “going East(Ost)”, will instead, go up a chimney? I HOPE I’m wrong, but I’m afraid I’m not. PS, in the Phoenix area, guards may come from Russian, Serb & Balt-sources, so learn Russian, to “get along” if you find yourself in the camp & a prisoner, although don’t admit to knowing any languages, those might get “shot, trying to escape”. I think the govt. will claim that the “___-flu” took those in the camps and they had to be burned for health reasons, much as the Nazis used “Typhus”. In this future camps-scheme, those that may be able to testify, will be ex-guards, not prisoners. Have to remove those sections of the military appropriations bill that allow the Military to scoop us for t——-ts, determined by some Washington bureaucrats, & with NO hearing, NO trial, NO informing of family, you’re being held, with NO set date for your release,if ever. with NO trial, there may not be a case-number for you, with which to appeal (–NO appeal), so an honest Supreme like Justice Thomas will be smilingly refused data about you.

It just seems strange that everyone in power appears to be timid and fearful of saying, or doing the right thing. We see it in Congress and the media. Its like we are, or have been, set up. But surely! Surely! Surly! America won’t allow that. Will we?

    I can remember when OSHA went into effect, I was reading the rules pamphlet and came across one rule that really caught my eye. I said to my wife this one rule really indicates to me me that the inspectors are really going to be pains in the asses. The rule said if an inspector showed up on site you were not allowed to KILL him or her.
    I wonder if the EPA has a similar rule,if not maybe we should declare open season on their inspectors.
    Recently a friend of ours was returning to California by air with his two young children. He and his wife had packed these little packages of food for the kids. Upon going through security he was told that he had gone beyond the allowable limit. When he asked what the limit was, the TSA agent said;”It is at our discretion!” Asking the question also earned him a pat down.
    We seem to have a government gone wild with its’ own authority right from the White House (when it declares that Congress is in recess when it is not) all the way to the meter maid who refuses to listen when you show her the parking meter is defective.

        Good post Doc! and patriot wow just wow! We need more people to stand up and do the same!! It is coming whether he gets re elected or not. I still can’t believe he is going to run again knowing he will have to prove he is a natural born citizen when obviously he can’t!! His father wasn’t an American! Geez…

        • Old Sarge

          He doesn’t have to prove anything now. For fear of being branded a racist, no one demanded to see proof of his Natural Born Citizenship and that set a precedence. That is just one foot in the door. Soon Arnold The Terminator can run for president. I have said it many times. I don’t blame the clowns that voted him into office. At least they voted. The real traitors are the ones who complain about who is in office but refuse to vote. In my opinion, they are just as guilty of High Treason as they claim Obama is. They did just as much to help him get elected as the clowns that voted for him. They may soon pay the price for their apathy when it is too late to do anything about it. Apathy put Obama and his followers in power and apathy will keep them there for another four years. If the day of the rude awakening comes, they will be in for a shock when they are taken from their plush homes in the suburbs and moved to cramped apartments in the major cities with only the bare necessities, or into FEMA camps with even less.

          In the past I have pointed out some of the reasons people don’t vote. One more reason is Jury Duty. There are those of you who think that you will not get selected for Jury Duty if you aren’t registered to vote. You better make sure. A coworker of mine couldn’t understand how he got selected for Jury Duty because he wasn’t registered to vote. I just laughed and told him that, in our state, it doesn’t matter if you are or aren’t registered to vote. If you have a Drivers License or a state issued identification card, you can be selected for Jury Duty.

          Don’t take my word for all of this. You can do your own research, or you can just pretend to be an ostrich and stick your head in the sand and wait for that rude awakening. If Joseph McCarthy were still alive, he would be saying “I TOLD YOU SO!”

Is there another build-able spot for a home on their property? And forget the EPA. The local municipality has the same power to stop them from making any improvements to their land.

      You are right. Municipalities have the power to enforce zoning ordinances; however municipal officials answer to their constituents, and the federal agency goons do not. They do not have to follow specific guidelines–everything is left to their warped, over-bearing discretion. That is the crux of the problem–Big Brother Government attempting to control every aspect of our lives for no other reason that to demonstrate that they can. The Obama regime is pushing it to the limit., and the people need to take care of this problem at the ballot box in November.

      • Mary

        What most citizens don’t understand is that the “local” rules and regs are being mandated from the FEDS. While the “local” government may respond to the local citizens, their hands are tied by a trickle down from fed agencies like the EPA. In PA, the EPA mandates to the state DEP what regulations have to be put on the books and enforced down to the local level. Been fighting this for years now, and it only gets worse. This is not how the constitution set up the fed. The local was to dictate to the state, and the states to the fed, not the other way around.

      You’ve nailed it, Patriot. Time to kick the Socialists out of the White House, Congress, and all the Federal agencies. I, too, feel America is at the tipping point. The U.S. I grew up in, which was the LEADER of the free world, and a superpower, is slipping away. Remember “made in the U.S.A.” on damn near everything? Every town had one or two big plants making things, NASA was the envy of the world, and you didn’t mess with the U.S. armed forces. People weren’t hounded by the PC police, backed with the full weight and authority of the government. We’ve let socialist bureaucrats steal our country, and liberty, a piece at a time because we were being good citizens and following the rules, even as the rules became increasingly leftist and un-American. This EPA persecution of lawful citizens is not a small thing – it’s emblematic of the problem. Leftist tree huggers have become our masters. The government no longer serves, it dictates.

And what you fought for is still here…we see it everyday when people take a stand… it is as you said a long time the anti-Americans have whittled away on our rights and now it is up to all of us to take our country back!! And no I don’t mean back to the stone ages I mean take back our RIGHTS and power!

  • chvietvet

    The Environmental Protection Agency has long had one of the lowest percentages of Vietnam Era veterans of all federal agencies. When I sued that agency during the mid-1980s for employment discrimination against veterans, only 1.3% of its employees were veterans with service during the Vietnam Era. That was the lowest percentage for all independent federal agencies, and only the Departments of State and Education had lower percentages. That was evidence that would have made a strong case for discrimination against such veterans, who constituted about 6.8% of the workforce at that time. The case was dismissed by the court because, prior to 1994, veterans were not able to file discrimination lawsuits in their own behalf. Checks of recent employment figures show that the EPA still discriminates against veterans with preference rights. Presidents Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama have been delinquent in allowing this agency to staff itself with extremists supporting far left causes in violation of anti-discrimination laws.

    The fraud in chief has turned these agencies into his civilian army that enforces his control of the people and damn the constitution and peoples rights…when the people let the fraud get away with his health care take over without protest in the streets he realized that we are sheep and will do what ever the govt tells us to do.

          Yes, Mad! Still, I don’t think it is Obama alone. He’s not That smart. The plan is beyond his vision. But he is having fun acting like the big wheel. Anti-Christ? No. Not even the False-Prophet. However he has the arrogance of diety. And loves to walk the walk. I don’t know what will happen to America, but I know where Obama will be in the end. Unless he sees The LIght, he will share hell with all the evil ones of generations past and future. ” Lord, Its hard to pray for our enemies.

  • LTB

    I’ve the same kind of political bullying gone on on my property in GA. I have a house half finished and can’t get a constructin loan because of the stupid wetlands (which really doesn’t) exist) for a wet weather run off “creek”. No rain no water! Place used to be a cattle farm and they never said a thing nor told the sellers that it was “wetlands”. So here I am with the same crap. I hope they win and we can finally get the “wetlands” weapon out of the EPA and Army Corp’s hands.

  • Patriot 101

    Ron Paul will eliminate the EPA. The only candidate that can be trusted to actually CUT spending. His plan cuts $1 Trillion in the first year , balances the budget in 3 years! EPA is a Communist entity operating inside the US government. With Obama (and Holder) it operates unabated!

    • Jean

      If Ron Paul wasn’t so radical about our military I could vote for him, but his idea that we caused 9-11 is rediculous, and cutting the military is absurd. They are our only defense from all the muslim countries. I would vote for him if he would deport all arabs from this country and keep our military.

      • Tucker

        I suggest you do more research. 9/11 WAS orchestrated by our government and blamed on “terrorists”. The “War On Terror” is a hoax designed to abolish our Constitutional rights, controlling the public through fear tactics…..scaring you into being afraid of non-existent monsters. Look under your bed and in the closet, nothing there!!! The last straw was the passing of the NDAA, which effectively nullified the Constitution. We now live under a Military Dictatorship. Our oversized military will now be used against YOU. Now you know why Ron Paul wants to downsize it….you have been deceived by the mainstream media. WAKE UP!!!!

      • Dale DuBois

        If our present Government thought that Ron Paul could win they would have done distroyed him like Herman Cain. But instead they painted him as an ecentric old man. I like the old guy but we have got to have someone in the White House instead of Obama.

        • Eve

          I know and it leaves us caught between a rock and a hard spot Dale. We simply can’t divide our votes, so the best man of course is left out. They know this. The media and Obama will push for the most liberal of the candidates and will use divide and conquer to try to win.

      • Eve

        Jean, he speaks from knowledge of the things that led up to 9/11 and caused it to happen. And yes, we were heavily involved in ways the average citizen didn’t know. was our bloated over powered government with officials instead of military making deals….So many say he wants isolationist government but it is interventionalist which is really more constitutional and the way our founders intended us to be. I know he probably doesn’t stand a chance against the machine but his policies are down the line constitutional.

      • Bob Marshall

        The president, Panetta, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior officials have stated that the US must continue to be the world’s policemen, effectively, discouraging other countries from doing more. A smaller U.S. military capable of fighting on many fronts. This was filed under Foreign Policy and National Security.

      • Patriot 101

        You think Ron Paul is “Radical with the Military”? Well, the Military donates more to Ron Paul than all other candidates COMBINED! I don’t think the military is going to support someone that is for “getting rid” of the military! Ron Paul is for a strong National defense. He wants troops on our borders not on the borders of Iraq and Pakistan!
        Your fear is unfounded as far as “strong military” under Ron Paul. He has repeatedly stated that that is the one function of the federal government that he can support as it is one that is constitutional! “To provide for our common defense”!

  • Radison

    Who do you think controls the EPA? The Obama Whitehouse of course. 2012 is pivotal for the American people to put an end to the destruction of the Constitution and our freedom to seek “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. The average American is so un-educated about this government being a leftist movement, and not protectors of the American people, that I think if we don’t stop it in the general election, four more years of Obama will complete the destruction of the Republic and make us subject to the Marxist state.

    These are the last day in which we can turn ourselves around as individuals and turn to God for the only help that we have ever been able to rely on. PRAY FOR AMERICA.

    I hear all your complaints about the EPA. I also read your opposition to BHO and his cronies. Let me try to wake you folks up. In order to impeach BHO, you need a House of Representatives with some cajones to draft the Articles of Impeachment. Speaker Boehner will not do that. Then you need the Senate to try him with the Chief Justice of the Supreme court presiding over the trial. Harry Reid will not try him since the Senate is controlled by the Democrats. There in lies the dilemma. If you have a better way, I would like to hear it.

    • http://none Gene

      Everybody says impeach him but that will do no good as he has never been legally declared our president so he can’t be impeached. We need to prove him not the legal president and get him out there. Prove that he is not the legal president then hang him for treason is the only solution. Impeaching him will only put another crony next in line in his place. When tried for treason will expose most of the shit in congress as an accomplice since most of them know he is not an American citizen and have a finger in the coverup. Maybe Joe Arpaio and his posse will clean house. Or there is a new law suit against Obozo later this month that could boot him out if the courts do their job and stay within the constitution. Then try him for treason.

What’s to prevent these people from telling every resident in Tahoe, CA that they must demolish their homes and restore the land to it’s “original” state? If the Supreme Court does not rule in favor of the Sacketts, then government is so far corrupt that there’s no hope left for a free America.

    Another power grab by this socialist administration. I pray that American’s with good sense an ethics vote this bunch of thugs out. The over reaching an insults to American’s, the racial overtones an the arrogant ignorance of this crowd has worn thin. He doesn’t need another 4 years, He has done enough damage, If he is re-elected there will be a change in our country we won’t recognize, it won’t be good. Our children an Grandchildren are facing a country like Europe with envolment and control in every aspect of our lives. Not one we’ll enjoy or want. The older people won’t live long enough to see the true destruction being put in place by this administration, Think of our families left behind. Dictating an over reach, taking from us to give to them. power grab of a property is the least problem. just the beginning. if he is given even another year. We saw the destruction that the full control of Democrats in the first 2 years. They have undermined an insulted us while we are suffering they are partying and going on lavish trips, sticking their finger and I mean the middle one up at us. This type of over reaching powergrab is what our fathers and anceters fought against, the reason immigrants came here and went through Ellis Island, for a better life. Now this administration is slapping them an us in the face.

    What seems to be the EPA problem. Why wasn’t there a “Posted sign on the property, Saying wet lands . Property not for sale. The EPA is a asshole they should be shut down. there intelligence and there professionalism does not entitle the EPA to function in this matter. The supreme court should favor the Sackett and award them with the money that they have invested into the property without any knowledge of the property as a wet lands. Penalty and interest should be impose on the EPA and DEC for there negelence and ignorance for not posting the land as a WET LANDS. This incident should should not have happen.

    On another issue that relates to the EPA. The federal clean air and water act needs to be in force to prevent the toxic contamination of drinking water sources in Pennsylvania . The slick water horizonal natural gas fracking is causing and will continue to cause the radio active and toxic contamination of the auquafers and private water wells in the state unless the process is brought back under the law. In this casew the state epa is too corrupt with gas company money . In other words, the politicians are bought off and the land owners are either that or deceived and do not realize the problem untill it is too late and they find out that they cannot use their own water. The gas frackers are uncaring that your home becomes worthless if you don’t have access to useable water.

    Herman Cain was distroyed because of his thoughts about the EPA, maybe he was the only one person that would have done away with the EPA as it is now. So he was distroyed in his bid for the White House. He was the only person that came out for the GOP contest that had any common sense. Maybe he would still be running if he had laid a little low on his thoughts about the EPA , but he was right on his thoughts. The EPA has got to be done away with as it is now.

    • http://none Gene

      I just hope our military command get some sense, when Obozo gets most of the troops home, and before he discharges them, that they turn against him to take over our country. I don’t know if many of you know that we have a shadow government waiting to step in when and if the present one goes bankrupt. It is the Republic for the United States of America. They have already elected temporary officials. Even a president (Timothy Turner). They will take us back to the principals of our founding fathers. But it will have to be gradual in going back to the constitution as there are some things in it that would be too drastic of a change. I read an e-mail the other day that stated some of the things we have been doing against the constitution that we would not like in any sudden change. I think Obozo will discharge a good portion of the military as soon as he can to keep them from a revolt. Just enough to use to keep under control and use to control the public. It seems that it would be very unlikely our military would obey his command to go against their own people since they are so sure he is not their commander. O’ has foreign troops stationed here in the US to help him control any uprising. There is the possibility O’ will cook up something that will give him an excuse to declare Martial Law. Then he could call off the election so as to stay in power. This will all have to happen before the elections unless he gets quite sure he has things under control to the extent of guaranteing his re-election. Too much can happen before election and probably will. So don’t depend on the election to get him out of the WH.

  • http://cowboybyte Roger Strean

    I,ve gone through a similar situation with FEMA. FEMA regulates “flood zone boundries”. I have property next to a river that on the rainiest year would’nt float an empty milk jug. One building is 75′ from the river, & 12′ above the water line. The other building is 250′ from the river & 20′ above the water line. The first building was not in FEMA’s flood zone, the second one was in the flood zone. To keep from having to buy flood insurance I had to hire an invirnmemtal company to do a study, which proved this property could never flood. $4000 This is a bull…. scam. I have three houses along the same river. They are over 1000′ from the river. One house was built in 1864, it’s on a hill. One by one FEMA changed the flood plain line to include each house. Same study, $1900 per house. I’m told from the consultants, Bush short-founded FEMA, result; no action. Obama has increased their funding & they’re out doing their “good works”. We got to stop this prick!

  • Mannafeast

    The EPA has become the enforcement arm of the Federal government to show the People that they control everything. And yes, this is part of Agenda 21.
    This case in the Supreme Court will be very telling as to which way the nation is being led and draged by the powers that be. Through UN treaty, the US has compliance conditions already set forth for the “statutes they have to enforce” in the courts. The UN has control over the legal system in this nation, this will just show it.
    Right now there is only one candidate who see’s where an unbridled EPA is taking this nation, and has called for the dismanteling of it; Ron Paul. He fully understands Agenda 21 / Sustainable Growth, and how the UN is forcing it upon the american people through treaty, not law. The ever increasing control over the people and more so, the property of this nation, both public and private; just go back to when after the treaty was signed at the Brazil confrence in the 90’s, how our national parks became Biospheres under UN authority, and the creeping of this into our nation sence.
    None of the other candidates will touch this, in fact they will go out of their way to ignore it; but only one is dedicated enough to preseving this Republic to publically oppose it, again that is Ron Paul. So does it not make sense to elect a man who defends the Republic and the Constitution and is not willing to give our Republic to the UN?
    The only other question after that ,is are you willing also?

    • Eve

      Manna, if you listen to the blatant name calling hitting mostly on Ron Paul’s age and twisting what he says, since there is little they can actually dig up on him , you immediately get the feeling there is a perverse hatred for him from the bought and paid for media. I can understand why. He is a threat to them and all the power and money our government officials now take for granted. Follow the money…

    In my view, this adds to my contention that Congress is complicit in this conspiracy. It has even permeated the states. I also suspect even local government is involved too.
    As just one more of the millions of like minded patriots, I appreciate your effort to expose the criminal element within our government. It appears as though our Congress is right in the middle of this conspiracy to defraud the American people.
    At this point, It would appear we face a dilemma I think many of us share. Please let me know if you agree…?
    For the last several years, I have been attempting to alert Congress to the problems we as citizens faced at the hands of Government. Here are a few examples.

    In January of 2009, I visited the offices of my Congressman, Dana Rohrabacher to express my concerns. Kathleen Hollingsworth his aid was also present In that meeting, . The subject matter was regarding Obama’s ineligibility.
    In that meeting Mr. Rohrabacher, gave me his personal assurances he had checked this matter out and was entire satisfied everything was in order. At that time I was quite ignorant to all of the details and I accepted his explanation in good faith. Today, I now know more of the truth and I am convinced he lied to me…deliberately!
    In a phone call of a few days ago, to Mr. Rohrabacher’s office, his chief of staff, Rick, Dykema, in response to raising my concerns about the NDAA bill, expressed the view that I was in the minority in my concerns and as I see it, attempted to marginalize my credibility and intimidate me ala Alinsky rule 5. He made a statement to the effect that I was acting as though I was over stating my case, was in the minority and no one elected me to anything….
    So how would you assess his comments?
    So what do you think Bob, Am I overstating the case? Am I only reflecting the concerns of a minority of Americans?
    If you are concerned and also agree…perhaps you too may wish to also set Mr. Dykema straight. You see, as a senior member of Mr. Rohrabacher’s staff, he too is obligated by his oath of office to protect the Constitution. Please copy me if you so decide so I can keep count. Obviously from the response I received I it is apparent I need to keep count for myself.
    It is my contention both Mr. Rohrabacher as well as Mr. Dykema, have violated their oath of office. This is a federal crime. A crime punishable by removal from office and jail time.
    A Federal Crime! Violating Their Oath; cause for removal from office! | Scanned Retina Blog
    Thank you once more for this startling list of abuses. If I am wrong about my belief of the Congressman’s complicity, here is a great opportunity to him to take action and set the record straight. Armed with the details furnished below, this is a great place from which Congressman Rohrabacher can launch his attack on Obama’s ineligibility.
    In such a case, I would be the first to apologize for having doubted him. So far the record speaks for itself.

    I am old enough to remember when the only government control over water and waterways was over navigable rivers. I am convinced that needs to return to our thinking again. The EPA is only one of several alphabet departments that needs to be entirely eliminated from the Federal government. The place where unemployment needs to rise is in the public sector. The President wants to shrink the U.S. Military back to pre-World War levels and destroy the entire volunteer military. They have shown too much dedication for him to feel comfortable. The EPA and the Interior Department have both grown beyond their needs or charters and are in dire need of losing 90 percent of their employees. That is the kind of unemployment we can turly afford to have.

    Now please, folks, support Ron Paul for president. He is the only candidate who has come out four square against such nonsense and has a consistent record opposing it over many decades.

    Mitt Hussein Romneycare has flip-flopped so much it is hard to tell where he stands, but the fact that both Newt Gingrich and Romney have at one time or another backed the global warming scam offers insight that their administrations would offer no relief from the EPA or other government agencies gone wild.

    While we’re at it, how about a meaningful investigation of mortgagegate?

    • Eve

      You see Gary, the media has done an excellent job of brainwashing people against Ron Paul. Most of them don’t even realize the difference between our country being interventionalist or isolationist. Nor, do they bother to check out his web site because the lovely left wing media has labeled him a ‘kook’ for wanting to follow the constitution and actually do the shocking overhaul of our bloated government that is required to save it! You see, he is a threat to all those big brother projects that are enslaving us so they have to discredit him in any way they can and the only way they can do it is to call him names etc….he is an honest man and like Mr. Smith goes to Washington honest men who tell the truth have to fight against the huge machine that has become our government.

  • Not Marie Antwannnette Obama For Sure

    Really what can be done at this point? The divide between the socialists who run our largest companies (like GE) & those socialists who have taken over our government through the construction of a permanent bureacracy (headed by “czars”) & the huge numbers of those living on public assistance (but do not need it) as opposed to the few of us who actually work, create, and pay taxes is so vast it might be compared to those day just before the French Revolution. Romney/Obama/Gingrich care is no answer either. Public Education & the major news media has made sure that Americans are even confused as to what it means to be American & what our constitutional rights actually are for years. The problem with saying simply let the system crash on itself is and restart is that the enemies of The Constitution are so many and so well organized we could end up with something worse. We might simply see what happens.

  • Marc Jeric

    The trick is to rename the thing. For example – a terrorist communist dictatorship that has produced permanent poverty and mass murder such as North Korea is called “People’s Democratic Republic”. And so our terrorist EPA has renamed swamps as “wetlands” – even as these produce deadly sicknesses such as malaria, dengue, sleeping sickness, etc. killing millions. Also, their definition of “wetlands” includes all land that gets wet 18 inches below the surface one day a year. Also, the real swamps produce methane by rotting vegetation – a greenhouse gas many times more powerful than carbon dioxide. That EPA augean stable must be completely cleaned up by the new conservative administration the first day it takes power from tha marxist Muslim from Kenya next January.

      My basement flooded recently due to a failed water supply fitting. Is my basement now a wetland?

  • Old Faithful Geyser

    Is it just me or what?, but every one of these alphabet organizations in our government seems to be corrupt; EPA, OSHA, IRS, FBI, DOJ, CIA, FANNIE MAE, FREDDIE MAC, FED, NLRB, DOT, and the list goes on. I think that most of these could be eliminated without too much adverse effect on our society and probably save us Billions of Dollars in the process. I’m not saying that they all need to go, but I’m sure that they need to be evaluated before we give them a free hand to destroy our country. The decisions they make affect everything we as a Nation stand for and here lately, they have been very Dictatorial. That needs to be STOPPED.

  • Petechris

    Although I am a Canadian – living in what was formerly Canada – I have been receiving this CowboyByte publication regularly for the past few weeks. Lord knows why.

    Gotta tell you neighbours (that’s how we spell it up here, eh?) commenting here, from afar many of you folks sure seem to have a strange way of looking at the function of human life and how it is tied to the planet we live on.

    Up here in the balmy north, the same myopic petro industry-friendly thinking is evident in a full blown, pre-emptive Federal Government-sponsored attack on just about all environmentally concerned voices, both public and private. The common idea seems to center on the belief that we can save our North American economic way of life by extracting, transporting, refining, transporting again, selling and then BURNING MORE OIL.

    Surely even those who personally stand to profit the most from this plan must wonder about the overall wisdom of fulfilling such a dream. Could we not be chaining ourselves even more tightly to mistakes of the 20th Century – the cumulative damage from which why are just starting to grasp given growing health, safety, efficiency and sustainability problems? The local ever-ongoing transportation crisis where I live being a perfect example.

    Reading most of the comments here, one understands that many of you and the majority of people you choose to associate with dismiss our common need to find a less destructive path.

    So while one respects each person’s democratic right to their own studied opinion, one would also hope that each of us would also contemplate the consequences if you/me/we imperfect sinners are wrong.

    Good luck with choosing your leader later this year. Hopefully you won’t do as poor a job as we Canadians did again in 2011.

    I just realized why the leftwing media gets by with slamming Ron Paul. He speaks as if he is speaking to ‘informed’ people but I would say most of the people are not ‘informed’ about what is truly happening and the consequences. The people posting here are obviously informed because we all have made the effort to inform ourselves. But when a public that has been previously informed by the media that this man is nuts for wanting to follow our constitution then they don’t ‘get him’. He needs to start ‘teaching’ them as if they were first graders that don’t know the first thing about the constitution and our rights.

  • Riverdweller

    Well – Kagan and Sotomayor will both be against this couple and all the rest of us who wind up in the same situation. The EPA definitely needs disbanded and private property “rules and regulations” should go back to the States. I don’t think the EPA is even Constitutional. If someone can find in the Constitution that a govt. agency has control over what people DO on their private property, then PLEASE let the rest of us know WHERE that is in the Constitution .

    My parents owned a home with 25 acres and the government decided they wanted to turn into a wildlife refuge.
    They came and told my parents that they would give ex amount of dollars (way down what we could have gotten). They said if we did not take the money now they would offer less the next time they came. My parents took the money but still had go the bank and get more money to pay for a home with 8 acres and less bedrooms. The government tore down our house and many others in that neighborhood.

  • CaptTurbo

    Let’s all get behind Ron Paul and watch him abolish the EPA!


      Sorry, CaptTurbo, WRONG PICK…Obama would chew him up & spit him out… Ron Paul can never beat Obama, besides he scares the hell out of us with his foreign affairs beliefs, also his other beliefs ! My pick is Newt Gingwich, he has the knowledge , balanced the budget for 4 years in a row, does not take any crap from the liberals, democrats,I like what he has done in office…forget the personal crap, who doesn’t have skeletons in their closets… of course who ever the Republican person that is nominated I will vote for.

    Too bad that those who cannot afford or choose not to own property fail to realize that this is a Constitutional right provided by the founding fathers. When we will not be allowed to “own” property without the fear of big government taking it from us, then our freedom is lost with it. This is not about what is happening to the other guy, it is what is happening to us all. Stand up and hold them accountable! If Obama is kicked out of office, just behind repealing Obamacare should be complete restructuring or preferablydoing away with the EPA.

  • Kent Walpole

    And our forefathers who wrote the declaration of independence and the constitution of the United States of America thought King George and his royal highnesses were bad eggs. The European royalty and all their cohorts didn’t even come close to what we have now with all these royal great white throne government agencies such as the EPA to rule and reign and subject us
    to their bureaucratic tyranny. What good is private property when all these government agencies completely control the use of the property.

  • Bokassa Kentucky

    The EPA is just another bureaucratic organization that needs to be abolish. What good has this organization ever accomplished? They have stifled all economic progress since their inception. The have stopped industrial growth and usage of natural resources for years. Next to the Energy Commission (what a joke they are) the EPA is perhaps the most useless and crippling government organization we have.

    • madmaxUSA

      Actually, the Department of Education is the most useless, EPA is a close second.

    Sounds kinda like a Socialist Crap Hole we live in doesn’t it?

  • Lloyd Revalee

    In studying OUR CONSTITUTION, I see nothing there that gives a Department of the Executive Branch the power and authority to make such decisions. However, Congress has authority over all areas of our government, including Departments. The Constitution states that all legislative matters granted under the Constitution are vested in the Congress of the United States, which consists of a House of Representatives and a Senate. No where in the Constitution, especially in Article I, Section 8, which outlines the power of Congress, does it mention the President or the Departments of the Executive Branch. And even though the media loves to say the President raised, or lowered, taxes, all bill relating to the revenue must originate in the House of Representatives.

  • Dr. Evil

    So when is open season on the EPA?

  • John G.

    This agency needs to be eliminated. It is completely out of control. Maybe the next president can take care of that.

  • Abigail Adams

    Is this finally enough to get everybody up and VOTING all of the liberals (Democrats) out of office, beginning w/ the President? Property ownership is the foundational right on which all other rights are based. Without the right to own, we have no freedom at all. For example, there is no free speech w/o property ownership bec somebody has to own the ground where a person to stands to speak; somebody has to own the paper on which the speech is written, etc. If individuals are deprived of ownership, the result is that the government owns everything– and individuals have absolutely no rights at all.

  • Carol J

    “Wetlands” is used only against private concerns. Now if it’s the draining of the Delta in northern California to send the water to Los Angeles, it’s a different thing entirely. We already knew why salt water was seeping into the Delta, but the George Miller authorized a $2 million study to find out why salt was getting in. More and more spending which was a complete waste of money as well as the ruination of our wetlands.

  • Bill

    Here what need to be done. When some one come on private property and they are from the EPA . Then One should KICK SOME ASS RIGHT THEN.

  • Aunt Jane

    This is one of the agencies that needed to be done away with. If we don’t elect someone that isn’t a part of the problem in ’12 we can forget it and line up and learn to salute. I have what the state refers to as a “blue line” across the back of my property and was told nothing can be built there. This is hilly, moderately steep land. There is a ditch there we used to play in when it rained but there is no water there unless there is water running down the state highway ditch. The whole thing is insane. WE are insane for putting up with this crap! I’m not wild about Ron Paul, he’s too old and a bit extreme about some issues but he seems to be the only American in the pack who says the same thing he said before he was running for the nomination. The only real hope I see is if we pray and put it in the Lord’s hands!

  • tools131

    The EPA is a illegal, unconstitutional police agency. Just as is the ATF, the FBI, The DEA, Homeland Securuity, etc. Its not the federal govt.’s job to police our citizaens. Its up to each state to have police. The federal govt.s job is to guard and protect our constitution and our freedoms. Our military belongs at home guarding our land, not doing mercenary work around the world for special interest groups that have no right to impose their will on others.


    This is more of the Obama’s administration showing the American people how this country has become a Socialist, Marxist country…our rights are fast becoming a thing of the past ….how sad that the American people have allowed this to happen, by voting this man & all his thugs in office in 08 ! The American people better wise up & not vote this dictator in office for the next four years because we have seen nothing yet…he wants to finish his job as he has said while campaigning…you all can guess what that job will be !

    We all feel sorry for that couple that has to deal with the crooked government…we need to demand that the law be changed in this area, also when they come knocking at your door & tell you we want your property because some big, rich corporation wants to build there & you are ousted from your home that you worked so hard for… you must know why Washington like these laws , i will tell you, to line their pockets plus self gain….this is fast becoming a dictator country…we must fight for our rights & change the laws…they forget they work for us !!!!

    Wake up America , vote Republican for the Presidency & Senate ..we have to take our country back that we once knew !!! God Bless America !

  • marco

    I can’t believe some of our AMERICANS want this SOCIALIST for 4 more years. This man has made this country into the laughing stock of the world.

They rewote the law for them and taken ours rights away from the Americans peoples now we the Peoples have no rights and must lives by theirs rights since the Constitutional have been rip apart by obama and the others in Washington DC..We must Vote the Obama and his crooks out in 2012 and we must look hard at the ones running to replace them there are a couple that are the same as the one we have now they are just useing different words to throw you off but they are the same as what we have now.If they do not want to return are close the border to the mexicans and others then they are and will not be any better than the ones we have now,,,

  • Patriot

    Folks, this is Agenda 21 in full, living color. Yup, the move to put all citizens in a box in cities across the world so they can be controlled: in other words, freedoms removed. They do not want people living “outside” the areas they deem appropriate. Enter the liberal/progressive/Dem EPA to assure you follow the rules – so they impose astronomical fines. Remember too, the SCOTUS has been filled more recently with libs/progressives, so seeking relief there will be useless. They are putting us in cages like mice on a treadmill – all we can do is spin the treadmill and get nowhere because THEY are in control – they think. Come Nov. 2012 – vote OWEbama OUT!!!! Someone on another site said they’d vote for an empty trash can over this POTUS – I AGREE!

  • John Bazen

    Please, let’s ALL face reality, shall we?

    ANY Governmental Agency, that is NOT subject to elections, is staffed by CAREER BUREAUCRATS!
    Each one of us, deep down, want to earn our paychecks, right? Well they are no different, but their “WORK,” consists of writing regulations, thus after years of new regs, they just kill-off progress.
    Now add to this this fact, most have not a clue of what’s going on in the day to day real world, most are liberal, and live and speak to only like minded folk, and after a while they lose all sense of reality! Thus they actually believe that ANYTHING THAT HAS WATER IN IT, BECOMES EITHER A WETLAND, OR A NAVIGABLE RIVER!
    Please remember, that if we do not change our ways, via our VOTES, yet expect different results each time, yet expect a different results, is but a sign of insanity, right?

  • matthatter

    I heard all congress and reps in D.C. are exempt from insider trading long as that is in effect there will be no change.they can manipulate laws to make themselves millionaires.The EPA is a valuable tool that makes laws that we don’t vote for .I know this does not probably apply here in the sacketts case somebody is flexing thier muscle.I do believe this is the core to corruption problem in this country. they are all or most of them making themselves millionaires.honest men and women come to D.C. with good intentions but most are overcome by the scum and greed it really is a shame.The tea party is the only hope I see for change and that is only if they are not overcome by the out of control power in D.C.

    And this is why we need someone in the Congress and the White House who will stop this idiocy. In Ohio if some idiot was to try and do this, we would send them packing. And if they claimed they had the authority, then we would smile and say “10th Amendment chucklehead!” And not one attorney or judge in this state would rule for the EPA on matters like this as according to our state Constitution it clearly states that “land can only be taken from the owner for use to benefit the public as a whole.” And the State Supreme Court actually went through and made the city of Cincy Ohio give back a whole neighborhood and made the city as well as the company pay for damages and return the neighborhood to what it was before they tried to take it.

    Just remember that sometimes your state constitution does indeed overturn federal law.

  • Chris

    This is a good example of a country drowning under laws. They purchased the land did everything correctly and then the Federal government shows up and starts up the fining machine. Was there a way to know about this before they purchased the land? The government is operating under “ignorance of the law is no excuse” and then passes 40,000 laws in one year. I don’t think there is one person in the country that knows all the laws passed this year alone.
    If your looking to buy land it is the same thing you don’t have a clue what your getting your self into. If the country is going to survive we need to have just a few rational laws and erase this insane bureaucracy.

  • http://WETLANDS TSAZ

    I worked in untility and engineering industry from 1980 on trying to make certain that my employer’s facilities met all the EPA regulations and the most agregious one was always “WETLANDS”. Any time we allowed an area to gather rain water runoff and it appeared to grow tall reeds and have a few birds around it, the EPA declared it a “wetland” and gave us grief. Proving that the property was originally just desert was easy with dated and published aerial photographs but it often took court litigation to get them to drop the case and the cost was always very high with legal fees out the roof. Still it was cheaper than paying the fines. My sympathy goes to this couple and this just points out why it is becoming more and more necessary to STOP BIG GOVERNMENT!

  • Doc Holliday

    I believe it wise we cleanup under our own door matt before we continue going globe hopping preaching what we no longer practice.

    To the bozo’s in the EPA. Most of the northern half of our country was once a frozen wet land and presumably under a sheet of ice. I guess we best lay waste and restore everything north of the Mexican border, right? Never mind, maybe thats why the O’peckerhead refuses to protect our southern border, letting these cockroaches in to lay waste to towns and cities……..

  • WillyT

    In the late 70’s I watched the State of Wisc. messing with farmers and their ponds. The state took land from them declaring that these wetlands were now going to be state controlled preserves – then guess what happened? The state allowed low income tenements and “exclusive” condos to be built near such preserves and the occupants got the benefit while the farmers got lectured by bureaucrats and pin-heads about biodiversity.

    Farmers had to move any herds away from ponds, tilled fields were moved away from these ponds to keep them from being “spoiled”. It’s the farmers who preserved and managed them in the first place! The farmers made most of the ponds where the ducks and other wild fowl gather. The government seems to be saying: You build a good thing and we will come take it!

    We all know how good a job was done managing the Missouri/Mississippi over the years with the levies and dams.

    My farmer friends around Madison WI had this happen to them as the state tore through the state identifying all such water resources that they could restrict or deny farmers access (or face lawsuit).

    It’s not just the federal government that employs strong arm techniques. Don’t be so fast to think that states rights are a cure all for bureaucratic abuse. Pin-heads are everywhere.

  • Jim

    I grew up in Idaho. There are NO natural wetlands anywhere in that state. There are some marshes in Southe Western Idaho created by farmers for irrigation where I used to go duck hunting but from the looks of the property, they are somewhere in the central Idaho mountains where it isn’t even possible to have wetlands. Simple solution: If EPA says you can’t build, then the EPA pays you fair market value for the property out of THEIR budget. That would shut this nonsense down.

    • Ron

      Sorry Jim, but out of “THEIR” budget is money out of your and my pocket. Maybe if EPA employees on an individual basis had to pay out of their “own personal” pocket for any erroneous land claims on their part this BS would quickly come to a halt….

    The government can basically do whatever it wants under that law apparently, however it is tantamount to a “taking” and should be recompensed the same as any condemnation of property, otherwise the individual is being forced to bear the burden of a government law thought to be for the good of the general public. It is no different than when the governemtn condems a property for a public road. The owner is not expected to bear the loss of the land.

    The EPA is rotten just like PETA. B.O. the “far left liberals,” “mother nature” and other’s too many to number. They all belong in the same garbage can. Oh, excuse me I have to go clean up the mess I just made in my basement by stepping on a centipede!

    It is past time for all true Americans to grow some courage, stop talking the problem to death, arm themselves, band together and march on DC. When the American people are ready to take our country back please call me and I will march at the front of the pack and take the first bullet. The only way we will ever get our country back is to physically remove these criminals from office and our country. So it is time to put up or shut up.

    How bout filing charges on the EPA for some of the Government jobs that had not only changed but totally destroyed the land they have total control over currently. They have

    My son built a house in the woods, and the lot next to him was deemed wetland property. My son was glad, as he enjoys peace and quiet. The owner asked him to purchase the wetland lot, for 10,000. My son asked me about it, and I said it would be a waste of $10,000. Two years later, a rich man bought the lot, and after several tests, found out it was not a wetland property at all, so he built a house on it, and uses it for a summer home, and is a very annoying neighbor! Who are these experts, and why don*t they update the land, since it was 37 years ago, when last recorded! If someone wants to build on a suspect property, let them sign a waiver, absolving any liability. Nah, that would be too simple!

    Re: The Sacketts Supreme Court Case Involving the EPA…..

    Over the ALLEGED “wet lands” property they purchased, for the intent of building their home, I’m not an Attorney and I do not profess to know jack about environmental issues, or “wet lands”! But what I DO know is that this case is “open and shut”! The fault lies NOT with the poor Sackets, who purchased this property in good faith but, rather, WITH THE REALTOR WHO SOLD THEM THE LAND, or even, perhaps, the actual “SELLER” of the property because, if this property IS, indeed, on “wet lands” and, thus, not to be developed or used commercially, then it is THE REALTOR and/or THE SELLER.

    Also….Pardon me, but WHO WROTE THIS ARTICLE? It’s GOOD…..The first sentence is GREAT! “The Sacketts HAD GOTTEN??” There is NO SUCH WORD as “gotten”! The Sacketts “OBTAINED” (the necessary papers, etc.). Are y’all in need of more Editors or Writers? I don’t have a College degree, but I still manage pretty well and I possess an excellent command of the English language and proper grammar.

    Look people, the “Anointed One” makes his chess move’s and us babbling humans need to realize that the unbelieving conspiracy “heathen” understate the issues when they say that Obama is a radical. Alas, they know not the secrets we are all going to witness. The “Anointed One” is amazing (and according to Biden: he’s so brillant), and takes the people at the highly efficient Post Office and sends them right over to the Student Loan Program. The “Anointed One” knows all. Twitter messages were machine-gunned to cell phones at mach speed. Facebook and MySpace groups spread across the Internet like digital fire. YouTube videos featuring celebrities ricocheted across the globe and into college students’ in-boxes with devastating regularity. All the while, the Obama mega-money-raising engine whirred on at high speed, until the result became inevitable: an unthinking mass of young voters marched forward to elect the “Anointed One.”
    I am not surprised to hear these stinking lies about our “Anointed One,” it should be apparent to anyone that this was coming down the pike. I do have a couple questions about future process steps concerning these developments? When the “Annointed One” decides to start bar-coding everyone, will we get to decide if the mark is on our hand or forehead? Allot of people will prefer the hand, (especially women of course), unless your a porn actress or something along those lines. Also, my girlfriend was wondering if the Administration will be getting fashion advice from Hollyweird or the New York City crowd? We are both agree that the Administration “Maoies” as the “Anointed One ” so lovingly calls them,will be getting uniforms similar to the SS uniforms in Germany in WW2. With big letters abreviating “Barack’s Socialists.” So shall we start calling them the BS?

    Liberals are mean, hate-driven, jealous of success and covetous people. That explains why liberals always bring “human misery and suffering”.

    A house divided will fall. Either demoncraps will rule and bring the above to America and eventually the world, or the Tea Party take over entirely our system of government and set up laws making anyone who is a liberal or a demoncrap ineligible to run for government office.

    It will not be hard to determine a liberal since they all look like Al Franken or a pouty old lady.

    The real estate company that sold them the land is at falt for not letting the people know they could not build there. If the EPA has a problem with it, they should find out who sold the land to these people and sue them. The people that bougth the land should sue the real estate company also.

    Think about this e-mail and see if there’s anything here you don’t believe!

    I hadn’t thought about this – but where are Obama’s past girlfriends
    surely he had at least one? No past girl friends popping up anywhere?
    Strange – strange to the point of being downright weird!

    OK, this is just plain old common sense, no political agendas for
    either side. Just common knowledge for citizens of a country,
    especially American citizens, who know every little tidbit about
    every other president (and their wives) that even know that
    Andrew Jackson’s wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused
    of adultery, or that Lincoln never went to school or Kennedy
    wore a back brace, or Truman played the piano.

    We are Americans! Our media vets these things out! We
    are known for our humanitarian interests and caring for our
    ‘fellow man.’ We care, but none of us know one single
    humanizing fact about the history of our own president.

    Honestly, and this is a personal thing… but it’s bugged me
    for years that no one who ever dated him ever showed up.
    Taken his charisma, which caused the women to be drawn
    to him so obviously during his campaign, looks like some
    lady would not have missed the opportunity.

    We all know about JFK’s magnetism, McCain was no monk,
    Palin’s courtship and even her athletic prowess were probed.
    Biden’s aneurisms are no secret. Look at Cheney and Clinton-
    we all know about their heart problems. How could I have
    left out Wild Bill before or during the White House?

    Nope… not one lady has stepped up and said, “He was soooo
    shy,” or “What a great dancer!” Now look at the rest of what
    we know… no classmates, not even the recorder for the
    Columbia class notes ever heard of him.

    Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Check
    for groomsmen. Then get the footage of the graduation ceremony.

    Has anyone talked to the professors? Isn’t it odd that no one is
    bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.

    When did he meet Michele and how? Are there photos?
    Every president provides the public with all their photos,
    etc. for their library. What has he released? Nada – other
    than what was in this so-called biography! And experts
    who study writing styles etc. claim it was not O’s own
    words or typical of his speech patterns, etc.

    Does this make any of you wonder?

    Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from Obama’s
    past, saying they knew him, attended school with him, was
    his friend, etc? Not one person has ever come forward from his past.

    This should really be a cause for great concern. Did you see
    the movie titled, The Manchurian Candidate?

    Let’s face it. As insignificant as we all are… someone whom
    we went to school with remembers our name or face… someone
    remembers we were the clown or the dork or the brain or the
    quiet one or the bully or something about us.

    George Stephanopoulos, ABC News said the same thing
    during the 2008 campaign. Even George questions why
    no one has acknowledged that the president was in their
    classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu
    speeches on campus. Stephanopoulos was a classmate of
    Obama at Columbia-class of 1984. He says he never had
    a single class with him. Since he is such a great orator,
    why doesn’t anyone in Obama’s college class remember
    him? And, why won’t he allow Columbia to release his
    records? Do you like millions of others, simply assume
    all this is explainable – even though no one can?


    Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted
    400 Columbia University students from the period when
    Obama claims to have been there, but not one remembers
    him. For example,Wayne Allyn Root was (like Obama) a
    political science major at Columbia , who graduated in 1983.
    In 2008, Root says of Obama, “I don’t know a single person
    at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don’t
    have a single classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at
    Columbia … EVER!

    Nobody recalls him.

    Root adds that he was, “Class of ’83 political science,
    pre-law” and says, “You don’t get more exact or closer
    than that.. Never met him in my life, don’t know anyone
    who ever met him.”

    At our 20th class reunion five years ago, who was asked
    to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of
    Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he
    was. The guy who writes the class notes, who’s kind of
    the, as we say in New York , ‘the macha’ who knows
    everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever
    met him.”

    Obama’s photograph does not appear in the school’s
    yearbook, and Obama consistently declines requests
    to talk about his years at Columbia , provide school
    records, or provide the name of any former classmates
    or friends while at Columbia .

    How can this be?

    NOTE: Wayne Allyn Root can easily be verified. He
    graduated valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-
    Donovan School , then graduated from Columbia University
    in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same ’83 class
    in which Barack Hussein Obama states he was.

    Some other interesting questions.

    Why was Obama’s law license inactivated in 2002?

    Why was Michelle’s law license inactivated by court order?

    According to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack
    Obama – but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases..


    The Social Security number he uses now originated in
    Connecticut where he is never reported to have lived.

    No wonder all his records are sealed!

    Please continue sending this out to everyone. Somewhere,
    someone had to know him in school… before he “reorganized”
    Chicago and burst upon the scene at the 2004 Democratic
    Convention and made us swoon with his charm, poise, and
    speaking pizzazz.

    One of the biggest CONS this country has ever seen, and
    getting away with it. This is scary on many levels!

    It’s their land, they can build on it if they want too. Now, if the EPA wants a say, let them buy it from the couple if the couple wants to sell. Just like every other government organization, it starts out with good intentions then turns in to a communist dictator! Get rid of the EPA, we drill our own oil, the federal deficit is balanced and the economy is booming again. I used to say, who cares if we kill a bug? Now, we just want to drill where nothing is harmed. The EPA won’t allow it. Obama just put a stop to 20,000 initial jobs and 100,000 jobs down the line with the pipeline from Canada. Canada told him that if he won’t allow the pipeline they will sell their oil to China. Apparently that was not a problem for Obama.

    I may be wrong but too many things point to the same thing and that is they are hingeing their take over on this end of the world every body keeps touting for 2012. If any thing happens to the enviroment that is bad it just might be caused by this thing that is called haarp that the military is building and testing in more or less seceret and now they are talking about puting it on satalites. One scientist says that they could cause earth quqkes with it and could even cause dna changes in animals and people. If you don’t know already the people that control about all of the defence infrastructure(mfg war equipment) are the same ones that want to take over the world(nwo) I think this is what is killing the birds that keep falling out of the sky this haarp thing the military is working on.

There is also videos on utube about ufos and our gov envolvement in what is going on,it is about our planet earth and our universe and connections with other planets.

    I belive and there is a lot of other people that belive there has been and maybe aliens here from out side our planet. There is or was drawings of hot air ballons and other things pretaning to advanced tectnolgy on cave and cliff walls.The poeple that did the drawing had to see what they drew to know how to draw it.Who were these aliens,where did they come from and are some of them still here. Plato wrote about the city of atlantis and from his writings they had all of the conveinances of our modern world. most of the smarts were in atlantis. When atlantis was destroyed the people that could fled to other parts of the planet. Me thinks these people may be thebuilders of the pyrmids in egypt,middle america and china. all were built with the sams tectnolgy. Also the aztex indians were at one time capable of doing brain surgery. Peru has paved roads that have been there so long no one knows who paved them. check out the remains of a civilization that was found in the desert of south america abouy 20 years ago. every thing they done was on a hugh scale. Ditches that ran for miles arrow straight. Out lines of animals and birds over a mile wide. They had to have equipment to do this and not sticks and rock hammers. The investigators of this place say they don’t know who they were ,where they came from or where they went to. Unless they are lying they have no clues.

    Every one that has went through high school at one time had to have some knowledge of the mayan indians in mid america and what is now mexico. The wonders of the collasal structures they built and their advances they made in civilization. The mayan indians are still there but not in the original buildings and citys. I have read several accounts of these people and the best i have heard or read of why the abanded the cities is probably what is our problem here now in the united states. These people were probably taxed.regulated,opressed screwed so bad for so long they just said to hell with it and left and went back to the wilds. Our problem is now we don.t have any where to go.These people that are screwing the people of the world may be decendants of the same people that were doing the world back then.
