United Nations Agenda 21: They Want Cliven Bundy's Ranch Gone.

'' We Lost Our Land Rights During the Civil War,
There were a variety of issues that led to the Civil War, but they all pretty much centered on this theme. The southern states always maintained the position that a strong federal government was a threat to local norms and traditions. This came from the colonial days and the debates that took place with the debate over the U.S. Constitution. Ultimately, the southern states, being less populated, were concerned that the more highly populated northern states would use their influence to force their will on the south through federal influences.

The issue of slavery became one of the key issues, not because the northern population in general wanted to do something about it, but because it was the most divisive issue of the time. The federal government began a series of policy changes that the south did not agree with regarding taxation and trade. The southern states, being threatened by this, began to withdraw from the union on the grounds that they had the right to do so under the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

The slavery issue came to the forefront later, and many in the south were discussing the possibility of freeing the slaves on their own. Basically, the south believed that the states should have more control over their own destiny while northern states believed the federal government should have more power to deal with state level issues.''

The Antelope Valley is a vast patch of desert on the outskirts of Los Angeles County, and a segment of the few rugged individualists who live out there increasingly are finding themselves the targets of armed raids from local code enforcement agents, who've assembled into task forces called Nuisance Abatement Teams (NATs).

The plight of the Valley's desert dwellers made regional headlines when county officials ordered the destruction of Phonehenge: a towering, colorful castle constructed out of telephone poles by retired phone technician Kim Fahey. Fahey was imprisoned and charged with several misdemeanors.

But Fahey is just one of many who've been targeted by the NATs, which were assembled at the request of County Supervisor Mike Antonovich in 2006. LA Weekly reporter Mars Melnicoff wrote an in-depth article in which she exposed the county's tactic of badgering residents with minor, but costly, code violations until they face little choice but to vacate the land altogether.

"They're picking on the the people who are the most defenseless and have the least resources," says Melnicoff.
