When you go to a lending institution to get a loan, more often than not, you are required to put up something worth about the same, your home, your vehicle, this is called collateral. Is this the reason that some of our National Parks are closing?

Senator Conrad Burns of Montana stated, "It is astonishing that a group of extreme environmentalists can invite a few folks from the United Nations to circumvent laws that Americans and Montanans have worked hard for and lent their voices to." Burns expressed worries the committee "would also seek to put a halt to activities in the park such as travel by motor vehicles as well as to create a buffer zone around the park that would run roughshod over private property rights.”

Find it ironic that just last week new broadcasters stated that an additional 9,000,000 acres were acquired by our U.S. government in no less than a half dozen states, some around existing National Parks.

During the Clinton administration, the UN requested that additional acreage be acquired as a buffer zones around roughly two dozen U.S. parks and preserves, covering millions of acres of public land. Has this just taken place? Has “globalization” of the U.S. just occurred with U.S. tax payers picking up the tab?


If not, why are signs at the entrance of the Smokey Mountain National Park now stating:

Under the United Nations Biodiversity Treaty, a precious resource owned by American citizens for over 200 years has now turned jurisdiction over to the UN for control. Moreover, yes, you, will continue to pay taxes for the maintenance and upkeep. However, we as a nation will no longer own it. Now, the UN has ultimate jurisdiction.

If you have noticed across America, our parks and wilderness areas are slowly being closed to the public, coincidence?

Is it just happenstance that hiking trails are being barricaded?” No hunting,” No fishing," and “No Trespassing” signs are going up. Higher entry fees, why, to keep American families out of their own lands?

Additionally, research “Fourth World Wilderness Congress” and “World Conservation Bank.”

The United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development was created in 1982. The commission published the “Brundtland Report” setting the stage for unlimited enactments to take over ecology, and environmental and pollution laws throughout the world.

Study the “Brundtland Report” a portion of which reads,“We will have a proposal for very harsh, quasi-spiritual ecological laws for Mother Earth. A Mother Earth Comes First mentality will arise throughout the world.”

In conclusion, upon doing an Internet search, you might find,“CHINA has Mark Twain forest in Missouri as collateral for unpaid loans,” interesting reading!

The United States government has direct ownership of almost 650 million acres of land (2.63 million square kilometers)- nearly 30% of its total territory.

The top 10 list of states with the highest percentage of federally owned land looks like this:

Nevada 84.5%
Alaska 69.1%
Utah 57.4%
Oregon 53.1%
Idaho 50.2%
Arizona 48.1%
California 45.3%
Wyoming 42.3%
New Mexico 41.8%
Colorado 36.6%

Notable is that all these states are in the West. The US government owns 84.5% of Nevada:

Connecticut 0.4%
Rhode Island 0.4%
Iowa 0.8%
New York 0.8%
Maine 1.1%
Kansas 1.2%
Nebraska 1.4%
Alabama 1.6%
Ohio 1.7%
Illinois 1.8%

One territory is not specified on the map being Washington D.C. The District of Columbia by default falls under the direct tutelage of the Federal Government.
