WHAT & WHERE?
In 2012, the Department of Interior established the National Blueways System which brings various unelected environmental stakeholders and organizations, as well as local, state, federal, and international bureaucrats together for environmental issues in the White River Watershed area and for building a sustainable economic region. In actuality, it looks like it could be a future federal land grab under United Nations Agenda 21, and we will be used as a biosphere model for other areas in the United States.
*Watershed means every square inch of land from which rainfall runoff eventually draws into the White River, including your own back yard! The misconception is that this affects ONLY the White River, but this is incorrect. This could affect your property even if you don’t live near the White River.

We’re an agricultural state. An example of consequences are that farmers and cattlemen would be limited regarding the tilling of their soil and water runoff from their fields and pastures, and this would limit their ability to be profitable in their business. The government watershed regulations and restrictions will be extreme and oppressive. You could have no ability to decide what to do with your own property. It seems like these pro-conservation groups view wildlife as more important than humans.
Many international organizations who are supporting this Blueway designation and that supposedly protect habitats and millions of designated acres use the slogan: “Leave no trace”. This means no human carbon footprint: no human presence allowed. It’s time to say, “ENOUGH! This is oppressive!”
We understand that it’s important to take care of our natural resources, but federal government involvement is neither necessary nor desired.
We mentioned these people, businesses, and groups who support the National Blueways System in our email from Saturday, May 18, 2013 entitled “Help Oppose the Destruction of Our Heartland!”
There are over 26 stakeholder groups that support the White River Watershed National Blueway designation, including:
The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission
The Audubon Society
Federal partners from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Department of Agriculture
The Department of the Interior
The Nature Conservancy
Several other agencies and businesses interested in environmentalism and conservation

Why are the same bureaucrats and NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) who, in the 1990’s tried to give the same general area a U.N. title (“United Nations Biosphere”), now trying to call it by a National Blueway title? Remember the Ozark Man and Biosphere of the 1990’s? Recall that battle.
Why do bureaucrats & “do-good environmentalists” want to designate* your land without consulting you or notifying any of our Constitutional officers whom you have elected to protect you from such encroachment on your private property and on the public lands which your tax dollars maintain for your public access and enjoyment?
*Don’t be deceived by flattering bureaucratic designations. Designations always lead to stronger rules and regulations for you and me and what we can do on our own property.
It seems that some NGOs represent the United Nations, and the government represents some of the NGOs!
Contact your Arkansas’ Governor Mike Beebe (or Missouri Governor Jay Nixon), U.S. senators and U.S. representatives , state senators and representatives, and county judges and Justices of the Peace . Call and make sure that your County Quorum Court endorses the “No Blueway” resolution.
For your U.S. senators and U.S. representatives, be sure to contact them at their local office near you. See the table below for contact info. Information sent to their Washington D.C. offices could be held up for screening purposes for up to 30 days. We don’t have time for that, so we’re not including their D.C. contact info. Fax, email, and call them LOCALLY. We need to flood these local offices with protest letters and calls!

WHEN? RIGHT NOW!
Our time is running short!
The time frame in which we may express our opposition and take action against the White River Watershed National Blueway designation is from January 9, 2013 – July 6, 2013.
It’s imperative that we have volunteers from each county in Arkansas (and those affected in Missouri) to present
this resolution to their county quorum courts in June 2013. Will your Justice of the Peace vote to support this resolution? It’s up to you to make sure that they do.
Share & forward this email to your entire email list!
We don’t want the federal government controlling, restricting, or regulating our public or private property.
It’s just that simple.
