The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) designated 50 million acres of public land in Nevada for solar development. The specified area reportedly included the majority of Bunkerville, the town where Bundy ranch owned by Cliven Bundy, is located. A map of the “Proposed Solar Energy Zones” created by the BLM in 2010 revealed that more than 70 percent of Nevada was “open to applications” for the lease of public lands for solar projects, the Washington Free Beacon reports. According to the report, the BLM was seeking Solar Development Program applications for 9.6 million acres of federal public lands in Nevada were on immediate offer. An additional 40.8 million acres were also to become available, but not action has yet been taken on the initiative.

A BLM standoff in Texas could be the next battle for both property rights and states’ rights. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Teddy Henderson is just one of the ranchers along the Texas and Oklahoma border who may lose land they hold a deed on, to the federal government. The Bureau of Land Management is attempting to seize approximately 90,000 acres along the Red River, claiming the directional changes of the waterway have moved the state border. Texas Governor Rick Perry weighed in on the BLM land grab debate yesterday during an interview with Stuart Barney on Fox News. Governor Perry warned the federal agency tasked with overseeing public lands owned by the government, to stay away from the Lone Star State. The lawmaker told Barney that the federal government already owns “too much land.” (via BLM Standoff Brewing In Texas, Governor Rick Perry Weighs In)
Cliven Bundy has come under fire for “the negro” comments made during a Saturday press conference at Bundy ranch. A New York Times article about the public meeting has gone viral and drawing backlash as the Nevada rancher has been deemed a racist. The speech Bundy made was recorded and still available for watch online. The statements made by the Nevada rancher who garnered support from hundreds of thousands of people around the world after armed BLM agents arrived in Bunkerville, do appear to have been taken out of context.

Charles Murray, perhaps the most well-known Libertarian in the country, just had his speech at Azusa Pacific University “postponed” at the last minute. Administrators at the university were reportedly worried about the bestselling author “hurting our faculty and students of color.” The Bell Curve author was slated to address the Azusa Pacific University students about striving for success in American and his latest book, The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead.

Louisiana is making a citizen database to store information about residents who may represent a “risk to the state,” according to State Representative Chris Broadwater. The Comprehensive Person Profile was developed by the SAS software company. The contractor reportedly utilizes personal information from all state governmental agencies to create citizen data entries into a single, centralized file system. ADVERTISEMENT The citizen database will allegedly be used as an aid in pinpointing “future criminals” and permit the state of Louisiana to “intervene” in the lives of residents to offer suggestions and guidance on factors such as mental and physical health and criminal at-risk behaviors, if Representative Broadwater’s assessment is accurate.

Agenda 21 is losing public support due to an increase in grassroots efforts to curtail the United Nations program, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the UN Agenda 21 initiative is a voluntary and non-binding action plan which is reportedly focused only on sustainable development. A total of 178 United Nations countries adopted the Agenda 21 plan in 1992. The global initiative is based upon a program which would in theory abolish poverty and protect “fragile environments” by “properly” managing cities. The United States is a signatory country to Agenda 21. Congressional approval was not required to become a signatory since the plan is non-binding. In America alone, more than 500 large and moderate-sized cities are members of an international sustainability organization that reportedly supports the implementation of Agenda 21.

An atheist group is suing a New Jersey school district over the “under God” phrase in the Pledge of Allegiance. The national humanist group feels the words in the patriotic pledge are discriminatory toward atheist children. The Pledge of Allegiance was filed against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District by the American Humanist Association. The atheist organization claims that the “under God” phrase added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954 “marginalizes atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriot.” The Washington, DC-based group is acting on behalf of an unnamed family. The anonymous plaintiffs claim the two words in the pledge violate the New Jersey Constitution’s right to equal protection. (via Atheist Group Sues NJ School Over Pledge Of Allegiance)
An 8-year-old special needs child is facing two felony counts after running away from his learning center. Edward Hart has documented “anger issues” according to his stepfather, Robert Bluhm. After running away from the Hillside Learning and Behavior Center in Allegan, Michigan, the little boy was found at a nearby party store by school staffers. Hillside Learning and Behavior Center staffers called the local police department to send a unit to the party store and drive the special needs boy back to school. After being placed in the back of the police cruiser, Edward Hart allegedly cursed at the Allegan police officer and “verbally assaulted” him. The 8-year-old special needs child is also accused of breaking a camera housed inside the police cruiser. Hart now faces two felony charges for resisting and obstructing and for the destruction of police property. (via Special Needs Child Arrested On Two Felony Charges)
Affirmative Action will no longer be a factor for college admissions in Michigan. The US Supreme Court ruled in a six to two decision that voters in the state have the right to alter the Michigan Constitution to prohibit public universities and colleges from factoring race in acceptance decisions. The US Supreme Court noted in the Michigan Affirmative Action ruling that a lower federal court was in error when ruling the college admissions policy was discriminatory. Justice Anthony Kennedy stated that voters in Michigan opted to remove racial preferences in the college admissions process because they considered such a policy unwise. Justice Kennedy went on to note that nowhere in the Constitution or in previous court cases, have judges been given the power to undermine election results.

The Walking Dead spinoff will reportedly be led by Sons of Anarchy (SOA) writer/producer David Erickson. Graphic novel creator Robert Kirkman is once again being very tight-lipped about hints and spoilers. Rumors about the direction of the TWD spinoff series were quickly squashed when Kirkman noted in the recently released comics issue that the cover has nothing to do with the spinoff. The cover art on The Walking Dead comic issue 127 depicts a woman with a green jacket at brown hair perched on top of a storage container in extreme peril. Zombies are crowded around the container and reaching out for her in hunger. Five other individuals can be seen behind in the background by the woman desperately attempting to avoid becoming dinner.
