LaVoy Finicum Warns Against Wolves in Sheep's Clothing

Just five days before LaVoy Finicum was gunned down by state and federal agents, he warned of wolves in sheep’s clothing, saying, 

The Federal government loves the American Lands Council. Because, what do they do?  They keep it in the legislative arena, they keep it in the judicial arena.  They (the feds) like that because they’ll never lose.  They’ll just keep stretching it out, they’ll stretch it out for thirty years.

Mr. Finicum really gets to the core of why Defending Utah has been so adamant about opposing Utah’s Transfer of Public Lands Act.  Since the federal government literally has no authority over the land in question, Defending Utah supports local control of the land. Our opposition to Utah’s “Transfer of Public Lands Act” stems from the bait and switch being brought on us by Representative Ken Ivory’s bureaucratic shell game which is being sold to us as one thing but giving us another.

Lovers of liberty must understand what it is that representative Ivory is actually doing so as not to be fooled into thinking that by supporting Ivory they are helping to further LaVoy’s work.

Some major points on what Ivory’s bills and associated bureaucratic rules are doing:

• The pre-designation of wilderness areas in compliance with federal wilderness acts (HB 148 2012 lines 103-138)

• Calls for transferring control of land to environmental groups.  NGOs?  Radical groups? (Page 10, Report on Utah’s Transfer of Public Lands Act, Constitutional Defense Council)

• 95% of the net proceeds go to the Federal government, NOT the state! (HB 148, 2012 line 41)

• Increase funding to a government agency whose job it is to buy development rights from property owners to keep it off-limits. (Report on Utah’s Transfer of Public Lands Act, Constitutional Defense Council , pg 68)

Over $12 MILLION in Tax Payer Dollars to Fund “Consultants”


Southern Utah ranchers gathered together to be in solidarity with ranchers throughout the west, restoring the rule of law through a petition for a redress of grievances and the signing of a letter of intent to withdraw consent to contract with the BLM.  When this happened, those with a vested interest in perpetuating the status quo (of more lawsuits, more legislation) including state Rep Mike Noel, were sent to persuade the ranchers to stay the course with the above legislative process.

Thankfully, on January 23, 2015, many ranchers refused to listen to the voices like Ken Ivory and Mike Noel, and decided to stand for principle.

LaVoy had been involved in lands rights issues for many years and knew the agenda behind the efforts of state representatives like Ken Ivory.  We can honor his memory by becoming informed and not falling for false solutions from false Patriots.
