From Preference Rights to Grazing Allotments:
Why Ranchers Own their Allotments

By Angus McIntosh PhD, Director Natural Resource Law & Policy Research
Land And Water USA Foundation

There are a lot of US Supreme Court decisions on the subject of “pioneer rights”,
or settlers' rights of “possession” or “occupancy” and “use”.
The case that specifically refers to "pioneer rights" is
Lamb v Davenport, 85 US 307 (1873).

The White House wants Congress to appropriate $1.9 billion to battle growing Zika outbreaks. Democrats, especially in the Senate, say new money should be spent, while Republicans argue that there is plenty of money and waste in the existing budgets for these and other agencies.

The good news is that these agencies, the World Health Organization, national health ministries, and even neighborhood groups and families can take many relatively simple, cost-effective steps to reduce Aedes aegypti mosquito populations and protect people from Zika and other diseases that these flying killers carry: yellow, dengue and chikungunya fever.

Our article summarizes the situation and the steps that can and should be taken right now: ahead of the Summer Olympics that will bring tens of thousands to Brazil, where many could otherwise be infected by one or more of these diseases, and then spread them even more widely when they go home – and before these diseases infect even more victims in areas where Ae. aegypti are abundant and may be carrying these diseases.

We don’t need billion$ to prevent Zika
Controlling mosquitoes and preventing diseases requires smarter policies, not more billions

Paul Driessen Dr. Robert Novak

The Zika virus is increasingly linked to serious neurological complications for pregnant women and microcephaly in newborns: smaller than normal heads and brains. It also affects areas of fetal brains that control basic muscular, motor, speech and other functions, leading to severe debilities that require expensive care throughout a person’s life.

“The sky is falling” scare stories have no place in public interest science or policy
John Coleman

Earth Day 2016 brought extensive consternation about how our Earth will soon become uninhabitable, as mankind’s activities of civilization trigger unstoppable global warming and climate change. President Obama used the occasion to sign the Paris climate treaty and further obligate the United States to slash its fossil fuel use, carbon dioxide emissions and economic growth.

Now what liberty can there be where
property is taken away without consent?"

- Samuel Adams

"We support property rights and pipelines - both.
Presently, CFACT is fighting against the “Dominion Pipeline” in Virginia (with local
property owners and against the company) because of the way the utility is using
eminent domain to trample on private property rights. Just because we support
the concept of a pipeline doesn’t mean we necessarily think the way
it is put in should strong-arm local property owners!

Here’s a website we helped build for a group of property owners
in rural Virginia fighting AGAINST a pipeline - though we
support the concept of a pipeline and certainly fracking."

Notable & Quotable:
Climate Change and War

Robert H. Scales, a retired Army major general: ‘Our men and women in uniform are smart and perceptive. They can spot phoniness in a heartbeat.’

From April 13 testimony by Robert H. Scales, a retired Army major general, before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environmental and Public Works regarding the Obama administration’s linking of climate change and national security:

The common spark for all wars is jealousy and greed amplified by centuries-long animosities and political ambitions. The catalyst for war is the ignorance of leaders that leads them to misjudge. Click here to continue.
