The EPA Legally Controls All Water, Food Production and Private Property

Dave Hodges
Activist Post

Mike and Chantell Sacket, from Priest Lake, Idaho, were preparing an 0.63 acre plot of land for the construction of their new home when an order by the EPA was issued to remove piles of fill material and replant the vegetation that they had removed from their property. The couple paid $23,000 for their property.

The order from the EPA was issued after the couple had gone through the process of acquiring all of the necessary permits to begin construction. Failure to comply with the EPA order would have resulted in a daily fine of up to $37,500.

The Idaho couple sued, in an attempt to prove that their land did not meet the criteria for being declared a wetland by the EPA; however, the lower court refused to hear the case. Fortunately, the Supreme Court sided with Mike and Chantell as well as several other property owners who had been the victims of EPA tyranny. The details of the case are provided here.

What seemed like a victory for property owners against the EPA may prove to be short-lived. The EPA is back and they are back with a renewed vengeance. Under the Clean Water Restoration Act, the EPA is in control of all “navigable waters.” On the surface, the term “navigable waters” would seem to provide some measure of protection to the public from invasive EPA enforcement by placing some reasonable limitations on the EPA’s regulatory power. Alas, that is proving not to be the case.

The Clean Water Restoration Act

The Clean Water Restoration Act goes far beyond the original intent of the law which was the protection of waterfowl and the conservation of wetlands. The proverbial fly in the ointment has its roots in the recent removal of the term “navigable waters”.

Under the new guidelines, if you use well water, the EPA has jurisdiction over your property and can even forcibly evict you and your family. If it rained overnight, or you have runoff from a recent snowfall, and there is any resulting puddles on your property, this can result in the loss of the free use of your property. You are also subject to eviction from your land if your property resides above an underground water aquifer.

A Thinly Veiled Excuse

In reality, this law has nothing to with preserving water and is simply a thinly veiled excuse to separate as many Americans from their land as possible. This strategy is straight out of the Agenda 21 playbook and it is being used to attack private property rights throughout the West. This strategy dovetails nicely with something I recently wrote about with regard to the fact that many state governments in the West are prohibiting the trapping and use of rainwater and the reuse of farm irrigation water. The last thing the Federal government wants is to allow Americans the right to fully control their property and to experience any kind of water independence.

The underlying intent of these policies is to attack America by lashing out at the food producers of America. The Wetlands legislation is being used to force the food producers of this country off of their land as the EPA begins to assess farmers $37,500 dollar, per day, fines for having any kind of standing water on their properties. The EPA is all too happy to provide relief for farmers and ranchers and acquire their land to help these victims of federal tyranny to get out from underneath their fines.

Most rural communities understand what is happening to them, but these events are receiving almost no attention except for the exceptional news blurb. The most dramatic reporting on this event occurred in the past week on FOX News in which Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on FOX and recounted many of the claims which I have identified here.

A number of other water issues have been the subject of recent Congressional oversight and subsequent legislation. Some legislators have been highly critical of recent regulatory initiatives which have abused the personal property rights of individual farmers, ranchers and homeowners. As of this date, despite some scant interest in EPA abuses, Congress has failed to act against the EPA for Fifth Amendment violations of property rights.

The True Intentions of the EPA

There is one person who has almost more water than God, but he is not and he never will be regulated by the EPA and his name is T. Boone Pickens.

Pickens could be found guilty of diverting rainwater to a house of prostitution and he will never run afoul of the EPA and its enforcement army from the Army Corps of Engineers, because Pickens is part of the plot to hand off the nation’s water supply to private corporate interests which will be beyond the reach of the EPA.

America is the victim of a three pronged attack which is designed to control all water: (1) Through the Clean Water Act, the EPA controls all water; (2) As a result of controlling all water, the EPA will come to naturally control all food production; (3) Since all property has some degree of water on it, the EPA is, in effect, the draconian landlord over everyone’s property.

Rules for Thee but Not for Me

That one person which is not impacted by EPA regulations and that person controls as much water as he wants. That infamous corporate raider and robber baron of the oil industry, T. Boone Pickens, is leading the charge to unscrupulously enrich himself as he leads the global depopulation efforts to create a series of artificially contrived water shortages. Pickens was one of the first to rush to capitalize on the impending water shortage by his insidious acquisition of the largest underground aquifer in the US, the Ogallala Aquifer, containing a quadrillion gallons of water, This massive underground reservoir extends from Texas to South Dakota.

In Roberts County, TX., Pickens has purchased nearly 70,000 acres, as well as the water rights to personally remove up to half of the Ogallala Aquifer of which he plans to sell back to nearby residents in order to enrich himself. Much of this aquifer extends into prime farm land located in America’s bread basket. One man, T. Boone Pickens, is acquiring the ability to turn the American heartland into a dust bowl. Pickens will soon have the political power to charge so much for water, that farmers will be forced to abandon their farms and ranches in a Hunger Games rendition in which government sponsored interests will eventually become the sole purveyor of the nation’s food and water supply as the anti-humanist, Pickens, makes more money from water than he ever did with oil.

In order to acquire the water and expand his control over the Ogallala Aquifer, Pickens needed more political power. In 2006, Pickens bought off the Texas State Legislature for $1.2 billion. This purchase of water-related law making power has allowed Pickens the ability to do accomplish four goals: (1) He created an eight-acre town and an accompanying local government, and subsequently made his tiny municipality into a powerful Water Supply District; (2) As such, Pickens automatically acquired the right to issue tax-free bonds and thereby, giving himself the lucrative benefit of borrowing at a tremendous discount; (3) Now operating as a public entity, Pickens is armed with the power of eminent domain which will allow him to expand his water acquisition potential in which he bullies local residents, along the aquifer, to sell their properties for pennies on the dollar; (4) Pickens used his 1.2 billion dollar bribe money to get the Texas legislature to pay for a 250 foot wide water pipeline corridor all the way to Dallas where Pickens will make an estimated yearly profit of $165 million at taxpayer expense. Pickens has become the poster child for the phrase “crony capitalism.”

According to Business Week, Pickens is now the number one owner of water in the United States. He will soon possess the ability to create a waterless wasteland through the heartland of America and who is going to stop him, Obama or the corrupt Texas State Legislature?

Pickens isn’t content with his new-found power over Texas water supplies. Pickens is in the process of greatly expanding his control over water as he petitioned Congress and the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee to expand his private/public water district’s power of eminent domain and right-of-way, so that he can operate across state lines as well. If this is fully granted, Pickens will control all water between Texas and South Dakota. Pickens is also in the process of doubling down as he has added his previous wind projects to the water district by proposing a vast $12-billion wind farm, to sit on the same land he is acquiring for his water pipeline. The cost of the water pipeline is estimated at $1.5 billion, which is being financed at taxpayers’ expense through bonds and low-interest loans.

Pickens told Business Week that he is only planning on selling surplus water, but according to the United Nations research and scientific studies report, nearly two-thirds of the entire population inhabiting the planet will face severe, life-threatening water shortages by the year 2025. So, Mr. Pickens, what surplus could you be talking about? And you only thought you had to worry about Obama collapsing the economy through his socialist policies.

Every bit of the Pickens plan violates the both the spirit and the letter of the law with regard to the EPA’s claimed right regulate all water. Pickens is not, and will not meet any EPA resistance.

Pickens Is Not Alone

The former CEO of Nestle, Peter Brabeck, does not believe that the common man has an inherent right to water. Brabeck stated in an interview for a documentary We Feed The World, that he believes water should only be something only the wealthy have access to. This is the same Nestle and Peter Brabeck which Jesse Ventura Conspiracy Theory episode “Blue Gold” featured in Ventura’s show about this rogue corporation. In the Ventura program, he exposed Nestle for bribing public officials in order to be able to take out massive amounts of water from the Great Lakes and sell it to countries such as China.

Of course it has been well-chronicled that the Bush family is moving to acquire massive amounts of water in South America including the continent’s larger underground water aquifer. The Bush family has built an expansive ranch on 100,000+ acres with the labor provided by the Army Corps of Engineers in another example of crony capitalism.


It is quite clear that while the EPA is moving towards the control of water, food and property rights, thus paving the way for globalist crony capitalists to obtain control over the nation's water and food supply, as well as usher in a society which has no private property rights.

It is also becoming increasingly clear that the globalists are buying up our water rights and are planning to sell it back to us at exorbitant rates. In this Hunger Games scenario, the elite will one day control all water, food and property rights and can, therefore, hold humanity hostage in servitude to the whims of the global elite.

The Clean Water Safety Act clearly states that nothing may be added to municipal water supplies except what is necessary to make it safe to drink and yet 70% of the country is illegally & immorally medicated with fluoride every day!
This law needs to be changed fast. The little guy won't be able to fight back.

Government will tell you they can do anything and they will try until somebody puts a gun up their nose and says no you can't. I can say I'm gonna take your car cause I passed a law. In the end if you club me with a baseball bat guess what, I'm not gonna take your car. As always until the game starts costing someone some skin, there are no rules or limits. When somebody pays with their blood it causes people to rethink their ways.

Hmm, If I'm not mistaken, (and I'm not), when government agencies take over property rights it's called "collectivism" or more accurately "communism". Who admits ownership of communism and what are their plans for it in the future?

Water, our number one commodity. One day it will be number one. We have to have it before food actually, so how important is it?
Greed, horrible awful greed. There will be an awful lot of greedy souls in HELL! Their judgment day is coming. Might now stop him now, but GOD will take care of him as well as all the rest. One on one, and he will meet his fate. What good does it do a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?

The American people are under siege, and this war is an unspoken war with a number of fronts. Thank you for writing this piece. This is the exact same game they tried in 1992, but did not own the EPA. They are using a different actor, bu the the same game. But hiding behind the capture of the EPA actors.

(watch the tape)

This requires full pursuit of local, state, and Federal legislators. Those who have been bought, educate the public and recall them. Agenda 21 is far reaching and not just a simple wildlife conservation piece.

Last time it was Rothschild and Strong, this time Rothschild and Pickens. Demand the EPA leaders be fired.

Geo-engineering is also controlling the production of food and contaminating water supplies. Insufficient Sunlight in SE area of US - seems we usually receive brief flickering sunrays, or the sky is milky gray dome. Small green tomatoes hung on vines for weeks and would not mature or ripen. Other crops infested w/ fungi and invasive insects. Have planted fall garden twice, but plants struggle to break through the ground.

Believe humanity needs a turnaround, quickly. Spread the kindness of a loving heart. Only the Death Cult members deserve to play the "hunger games".

The history of regulatory agencies working on behalf of corporations is a long one stretching back to the dawn of the twentieth century and the Progressive Era. As for the EPA, I remember when EPA Chief William Ruckelshaus wrote a law requiring million dollar liners for all landfills, which put most municipalities out of the landfill business because they couldn't afford those liners. Never mind that clay liners are just as effective and in the long term probably more effective than plastic liners, EPA passed that law. BFI was so happy they made Ruckelshaus their CEO. BFI stock was VERY good during the 1980s, splitting twice, so that one $15 share became 4 shares at $38 each. All thanks to Ruckelshaus and his EPA law giving BFI a monopoly in the landfill business. This same Ruckelshaus also served as acting FBI director for a while. What all this spells out is that the state and their offspring - corporations, are taking over all private property. Remember, corporate property is NOT private property. In a free market, there are no corporations. Corporations are creatures of the state and as such are just as bureaucratic and inefficient as their parent, to whom they often turn to for assistance in the form of protective tariffs, regulations, bailouts, and sometimes wars. What we need is a Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy that understands the statist nature of corporations. Government and their corporations are the problem, not the solution.

The title of this article is very disturbing. Let's look at history: We have someone ruling that did not get the votes in the last election. Therefore, we do not have a legal president-this along with the birth certificate problem equals someone that is not president. We cannot be made responsible for rules that an illegal person puts in place. So, when it is printed, "legally" controls this is a misnomer. Nothing about illegal laws instituted by illegal people in office cannot be made legal. I understand that there is a propaganda press that is trying to convince the public of their whimsical ideas being something other than just is NOT so. Therefore, this article should be printed "the alleged controls of the EPA." When someone has power...even power of the press it should not be misconstrued as anything legal and the word enforced should be used in documents.

All of us are to blame. 99% stood by while sensible population control was destroyed and ignored. 99% stood by while immigration to the tune of another 100,000,000 persons occurred. 99% stood by while T. Boone Pickens and his ilk continually bribed and corrupted both elected officials and government employees, none of whom is accountable for the terrible things they do. It is only reasonable to make a $1.2 billion investment in pay offs to garner the kind of exclusivity that Pickens has. Why, it's worked for Monsanto, Dow, Bayer, the Koch Brothers and every other monopolist.

The move to remove water rights from individuals is vast. Property buyers should be careful, especially if buying in these new developments.

Actual verbiage from the documents for a new development called Ventura Village, here in Venice, Florida.

"11.8 Rights to Storm Water Runoff, Effluent, and Water Reclamation

Declarant reserves for itself and its designees all rights to ground water, surface water, storm water runoff, and effluent located or produced within the Community, and each Owner agrees, by acceptance of a deed to a lot, that Declarant shall retain all such rights. Such rights shall include the reservation of an easement over the Community for access, and for installation and maintenance of facilities and equipment to capture and transport such water, runoff, and effluent. This Section may not be amended without Declarant's consent, and the rights created in this Section shall survive termination of this Declaration."

Developers are now selling lots with NO water rights. Oh Brave New World!

I hate to tell you this, but a great deal of this is incorrect, either by means of dramatic effect (exarating actual facts) or by stating things as fact that simply are not. The simple fact is this (please, by all means check the verifiable facts yourself), it is not the EPA but rather the big business / corporations that are doing the greatest damage, blaming the EPA through propaganda (like this article sounds like). Our soil, water and private rights as citizens are being destroyed in this proccess. Please also check to see what was occuring PRIOR to the EPA that made it a neccesary agency; rivers so polluted that they caught fire, entire communities so poisened that it was unfit for life, people thrown from their homes because some wealthy person/business wanted the land. It has started again, only with the propaganda (lies) that it is somehow the EPA's fault. This is either an article put together with propaganda being quoted as fact orsimply paranoid, given the actual facts.
