the role of private property in defending liberty
There is a quiet war being waged against the concept of private property, and nowhere does it surface as clearly as in the rural American West. Regulations and controls have been implemented for the past 40+ years that tear the very heart out of the concept of private property, and the frenzy for control of our private and public lands through administrative, environmental, and social forces, highlight the rapid and very intentional shift to collectivism in America by the radical left.
This week we will join Elaine Willman for an enlightening discussion of the means being employed by the progressives to strip away the ability of small farmers and ranchers to survive and thrive in the lands conquered by their forefathers. Elaine will update our listeners on the changes in water law, reservation lands, grazing leases and environmental regulations that have unfolded under the Obama Administration, and what the Trump Administration can do to roll back this leviathan. Nothing at all is at stake, but the survival of our way of life.
Please join us for an amazing expose’ of the war on the west by the forces of collectivism and global governance.

In July 2015 Ms. Willman moved to the Flathead Indian Reservation to assist western Montana landowners defend against a federal/tribal/state taking of water rights from landowners, transfer of a public hydropower dam to become a private tribal government asset, and loss of all control of water access or rate setting, deeply imperiling the entire food production in this agriculture-dependent region.
In March of 2016, Ms. Willman published a reference manual for community leaders and elected officials, now available in stores and online as well. The reference manual is entitled, Slumbering Thunder…a primer for confronting the spread of federal Indian policy and tribalism overwhelming America.
