The Progressive movement for limiting access and blocking the populace out of the national forest is moving full steam ahead. Hopefully, the people will start waking up quickly to this national movement and put a stop to it.
The tax payer funded United States Forest Service under the management of the US Department of Agriculture is in collusion with the Center for Biological Diversity and certain other non government organizations (NGOs) are working on limiting access and have a plan in place to close off certain sections of road in the national forest. If you are found in a motorized vehicle in these areas, snowmobiles, 4-wheelers, cars, pickups, etc. you will be fined $5,000. These roads will not necessarily be marked as closed but you have to know these areas by accessing their maps.
I would like to have someone explain to me how a government tax payer based agency is allowed to go into collusion with these NGO’s and UN based groups that are making these plans and moving forward with them that are stripping of citizens of this nation of our rights to our property and to land that we pay taxes on.
These areas that are to be inaccessible to the general populace will be available to biologist who are monitoring how quickly nature recovers itself. Hence the reason for environmentalist establishing wolves in these areas.
These wild land areas are all part of a grand plan for the Y2Y group otherwise known as the Yuccatan to Yukon and turning these areas of the states back to the way it was prior to 1492. Creating a wildlife corridor that will be off limits to people.

Under the Private Land Lock UP
“The Wildlands Scheme
The eco-radicals driving Washington’s RMAP plan tried to implement its scheme on a one-to-one basis, thereby preventing landowners from presenting organized resistance. In the same fashion, those behind the continent-wide assault on property rights are trying to conceal the true scope and nature of their ambition, outlined in a UN-approved program called the “Wildlands Project.”
The centerpiece of the UN’s 1992 UN “Earth Summit” in Rio de Janeiro was the Convention on Biodiversity, which Bill Clinton signed in 1993. The treaty stipulated that specific guidelines for preserving biodiversity would be provided by the UN’s “Global Biodiversity Assessment” (GBA), unavailable for Senate inspection until just a few hours before the final vote on ratification in September 1994.
Once the GBA was made available to the Senate, then-Majority Leader George Mitchell (D-Maine) quietly took the ratification vote off the agenda — because Section 184.108.40.206.3 identified the Wildlands Project as the framework for implementing the treaty.
Little support existed in the Senate for ratification of a measure mandating the eradication of industrial civilization from one-half the surface area of the continental United States.
Co-created by eco-terrorist Dave Foreman, founder of Earth First!, the Wildlands Project envisions nothing less than “the end of industrial civilization,” according to John Davis of Wild Earth magazine.
The Wildlands Project, states Foreman, “is a bold attempt to grope our way back to October 1492 and find a different trail.” As the project advances, Foreman predicts, “local and regional reserve systems linked to others [will] ultimately tie the North American continent into a single Biodiversity Preserve.”
“Our vision is simple,” asserts the Wildlands Project Mission Statement: “We live for the day when Grizzlies in Chihuahua have an unbroken connection to Grizzlies in Alaska; when Gray Wolf populations are continuous from New Mexico to Greenland…. Our vision is continental; from Panama and the Caribbean to Alaska and Greenland, from the Arctic to the continental shelves….”
Reed F. Noss, the radical “deep ecologist” who co-created the 1991 Wildlands Project proposal with Foreman, describes how the surface of North America would be covered by “an interconnected system of strictly protected areas (core reserves), surrounded by lands used for human activities compatible with conservation that put biodiversity first (buffer zones), and linked together in some way that provides for functional connectivity … across the landscape.” In both the “core” and “buffer” areas, Noss explains, “the collective needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs and desires of humans.”
Every environmental preserve — such as habitat for endangered species, national monuments, wilderness areas, or UN-designated World Heritage sites or Biosphere Reserves — is a potential Wildlands Project “core area.” Dave Foreman urges radical eco-activists on the ground to “identify existing protected areas” and have them designated core areas. They can then be connected to other core areas through “corridors” across the landscape.
Foreman also instructs eco-radicals to “look for gaps between wild lands or public lands” for future acquisition “by public agencies or by private groups like the Nature Conservancy.” Wildlands activist John Davis states that the whole purpose of this strategy is to keep “expanding wilderness until the matrix, not just the nexus, is wild” — in other words, until property owners, miners, ranchers, loggers, and others living and working in targeted areas have been driven off their lands and cattle-penned in urban reservations.
Writing in Science magazine, Charles C. Mann and Mark L. Plummer warn that as the Wildlands Project unfolds, “most roads would be closed; some would be ripped out of the landscape.” This is certainly what RMAP portends for owners of Washington forestlands. Eventually, continue Mann and Plummer, the project will require “nothing less than a transformation of America [into] an archipelago of human-inhabited islands surrounded by natural islands.”
Environmental author Alston Chase bluntly warns that consummation of the Wildlands design will mean “the forced relocation of tens of millions of people … the removal of human habitation from up to half of the country’s land area.”
Even though the Senate refused to ratify the Biodiversity Convention, the Clinton-era Interior Department created a National Biological Survey intended (in the words of Department science adviser Tom Lovejoy) to “determine development for the whole country and regulate it….” Furthermore, key federal regulatory agencies — the USFWS, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management — have become infested with the ideology of “Biocentrism” — the concept that human rights, needs, and prosperity must be subordinated to the good of the “global biosphere.”
In his book In a Dark Wood: The Fight Over Forests and the Rising Tyranny of Ecology, environmental analyst Alston Chase describes believers in Biocentrism as “apostles of the new order” and observes that the Clinton administration “adopted biocentrism as the guiding philosophy of all federal land management” immediately on coming to power.
David Garber, a research biologist with the National Park Service, offered the most useful summary of the biocentric world view:
“Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet. I know social scientists who remind me that people are part of nature, but that isn’t true. Somewhere along the line — at about a million years ago, maybe half that — we quit the contract and became a cancer. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth…. Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.”
This isn’t to say that biocentric extremists are simply idling away the hours waiting for Gaia to unleash a mutant pathogen to cleanse Earth of less “enlightened” people. Biocentrists in the federal bureaucracy, working with allies in environmental pressure groups, have been working to lock away lands across the United States, particularly out West — where the federal government is the largest landowner. The most useful weapon in this campaign of “rural cleansing,” explained biocentrist Bruce Babbitt, who served as Bill Clinton’s interior secretary, is “one landmark law: the 1973 Endangered Species Act [ESA].” But as Dr. Coffman points out, the ESA itself is adapted from the UN’s Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna (CITES) — meaning that the decades-long assault on property rights and rural life conducted via the ESA has been carried out pursuant to UN mandates.
In January 1996, Bill Clinton unveiled another key element of the Wildlands apparatus by issuing Executive Order 12986, which granted immunity to lawsuits to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The IUCN is a multinational advisory panel to the UN; its membership includes hundreds of federal and state regulatory agencies (including the EPA, BLM, and the USFS), as well as 133 UN-accredited non-governmental organizations, or NGOs — including scores of the most powerful, foundation-funded eco-radical organizations. The IUCN describes its mission as that of applying “eco-spiritual practice and principles” with the intention of “chang[ing] human behavior” with respect to nature.
Composed entirely of unaccountable bureaucrats and eco-radical activists, and immune to civil lawsuits, the IUCN is at the center of efforts to create “consensus” among the “stakeholders” who create policies like Washington’s RMAP law. Okanogan County property rights activist Darlene Henjy refers to the arrogance of the officials responsible for creating and implementing the RMAP proposal. The attitude she describes is of a piece with that expressed in an article published by the IUCN journal Conservation Biology: “[W]e assume that environmental wounds inflicted by ignorant humans … can be treated by wiser humans…. Conservation biology is a crisis discipline. On the battlefield you are justified in firing on the enemy.”
Stopping the Juggernaut
Many beleaguered Western property owners hope that with the end of the Clinton administration, the “rural cleansing” campaign will end. Apparently, though, the UN-connected biocentrists in the federal bureaucracy are merely retrenching, rather than retreating. In late April, Interior Secretary Gail Norton announced new guidelines that would encourage greater participation by state and local officials in the administration of federally designated wilderness and national monument areas. However, the Bush administration hasn’t indicated that it contemplates a rollback of the gains made by Wildlands Project activists during Bill Clinton’s reign.
“I spend a lot of time talking to people in the [environmental regulatory] agencies, and I have seen a real change in the attitude of the people who’ve come in with the new administration,” Joel Kretz told The New American. “But I’m a ‘Show me, don’t tell me’ kind of person, and it’s clear that many of the most radical people have burrowed down deep in the bureaucracy, and they’re still following the same plan.”
Rooting out the deeply entrenched biocentric radicals from every federal environmental agency would be the political equivalent of rooting al-Qaeda terrorists from their caves in Afghanistan. A better strategy would be to work through the House of Representatives to cut off funding for eco-socialist initiatives. But we cannot decisively defeat the Wildlands threat until we get our nation out of the United Nations — and permanently evict the UN from our shores.
