VIDEO: Federal Employees Brag About Swindling WWII Vets Off Their Land

Via sauced07


Federal employees revel in the fact that they swindle land from private property owners at pennies on the dollar, in astonishing admissions captured in a recently released video.

“We went out to the mine and the owners were two little guys that had been in the Second World War,” a California park service employee recalls at a retirement celebration for Mojave National Preserve Superintendent Mary Martin in 2005.

The employee brags about how the veterans’ mine was appraised by the federal government at $40 million, and acquired for a paltry $2.5 million.

“We did get it appraised and we did acquire it for $2.5 million which I stole the money from Washington to acquire it,” the employee in the video admits, adding that it’s sometimes hard to bamboozle property owners due to the agency’s reputation.

“’Lands’ isn’t always supported because we’re the ‘bad guys.’ We come in, and we take this land. And we always take it for less than it’s worth.”

  1. Well, that one made my stomach turn literally. Now you know why Obama wanted to make sure his minions have plenty of ammo.

  3. I live on the edge of a large national forest in the "southeast region". Next time I see one of the rangers I'm going to try and play that for him and judge his reaction.

  4. Just spoke to a friend that retired from Fish and Game in the Burns, OR area. He said the Hammonds ranch has been a target for land grab for years and years. They all know it.

    1. I don't see how they can legally do this. Although they "stole" land in my front and right side for half of the road without compensation of any sort, but said if they ever didn't need it I could have it back..............

    2. Most of what the these agencies do is not legal. You are not holding your breath, are you?
