Don’t become a victim of “legalized” land theft.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) aims to install conservation practices for the Mississippi River Basin and is now accepting applications for financial assistance to do so, BUT Secure Arkansas DOES NOT recommend signing up for assistance!
If you do, you will be subject to the terms of the contract drafted by the USDA/NRCS, and if you don’t live up to the contract, you may have to pay back money and other possible penalties to them. The contract is very vague and could vary from person to person.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is accepting applications through Jan. 16, 2015, for nine Mississippi River Basin Initiative (MRBI) projects.
Farmers and landowners in many counties in Arkansas are submitting applications to receive financial assistance to implement conservation practices through nine Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative (MRBI) projects. Applicants are signing up at their local U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service field service center, but extreme caution is advised!
The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service says the main focus for all projects is to improve water quality, but Secure Arkansas believes this is actually to implement Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 practices in Arkansas.
The nine “Sustainable” projects open for sign-up are:
Middle Cache River Project – parts of Craighead, Jackson, Poinsett and Woodruff counties
Lower Arkansas (Upper) – parts of Jefferson, Lonoke and Pulaski counties
Grand Prairie Watershed – parts of Arkansas, Lonoke, Prairie and Monroe counties
East Arkansas Enterprise Community, Inc., L’Anguille River – parts of Cross and St. Francis counties
Big Watershed – a section of Phillips County
Bayou Meto (Middle) – parts of Arkansas, Lonoke, Prairie and Jefferson counties
Bayou Meto (Arkansas County) – parts of Arkansas, Jefferson and Lonoke counties
Tyronza River Watershed – parts of Mississippi and Poinsett counties
Wapanocca Lake Watershed – parts of Crittenden County
Any partnership with a 3rd party will restrict the use of the land for the term of the contract, and any money they receive, they’ll have to report to the IRS.
Government agencies are using different tactics and wordage to gain control over private property. One of these methods is by conservation easement. Make sure you never sign one! A Conservation Easement is a legal document that restricts a landowner’s development rights and constrains the landowner from other property uses. The landowner (grantor) voluntarily places an easement on his or her property, while the government agency or qualified conservation organization (grantee) holds it forever. Once the conservation easement is signed, there is no way for the landowner to control his or her land ever. A conservation easement also lowers the value of the land. If you are ever able to sell the land, the conservation easement goes with the land.
We’ve touched on this topic before. Read our past article about Conservation Easements. From that article:
“The Conservation Easement is one of the vehicles used by the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Army Corps. of Engineers, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, The Bureau of Land Management (part of the DOI), and Conservation groups to take control of private property. Conservation Easements are being used by the federal government and NGOs to take over and to control private property. This is nothing more than a U.N. Agenda 21 Sustainable Development land grab. This same Conservation Easement lie is being used in all the federal programs in which the Federal Agencies are involved.”
Below are a couple of the documents with which you need to be familiar: the Conservation Program Application and the Appendix. Caution is advised if you do not accept Secure Arkansas’ recommendation against accepting financial assistance with your land, farm, and/or ranch.
This is the Conservation Program Application that the USDA/Natural Resources Conservation Service is using (which appears to be a Sustainable Development conservation application), and Secure Arkansas is recommending against signing up for financial assistance.
It appears that the contract and the financial assistance for this program is coming from the COMMODITY CREDIT CORPORATION! Just who is the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC)? Find a list of their board of directors and officers here.
From their site:
“Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) also extends direct credit and guarantees commodity sales to foreign countries throughout the world.”
“The Secretary of Agriculture determines the types and quantities of commodities that are available for use in the P.L. 480 program. Most of the commodities are distributed through nonprofit [Private Voluntary Organizations] PVOs such as [Cooperative or Assistance and Relief Everywhere, Inc] for Assistance and Relief Everywhere] CARE, the Catholic Relief Services, or through the [World Food Program] WFP, which is the humanitarian feeding organization of the United Nations.”
Private Voluntary Organizations (PVOs) are private tax-exempt nonprofits that give billions of dollars away to other countries every year. The U.S. military site defines “Private Voluntary Organizations” as:
“Private, nonprofit humanitarian assistance organizations involved in development and relief activities. Private voluntary organizations are normally United States-based. ‘Private voluntary organization’ is often used synonymously with the term ‘nongovernmental organizations’.”
“[Commodity Credit Corporation] CCC was incorporated October 17, 1933, under a Delaware charter with a capitalization of $3 million. It was initially managed and operated in close affiliation with the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, which funded its operations.”
(bracketed, bold, and highlighted emphasis, ours)
“On July 1, 1939, CCC was transferred to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It was reincorporated on July 1, 1948, as a Federal corporation within USDA by the Commodity Credit Corporation Charter Act (62 Stat.1070; 15 U.S.C. 714). As amended through the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, P.L. 112-166, Enacted August 10, 2012.”
“CCC has no operating personnel. Its price support, storage, and reserve programs, and its domestic acquisition and disposal activities are carried out primarily through the personnel and facilities of the Farm Service Agency (FSA).”
Commodity Credit Corporation is a federal corporate agency created by an act of Congress. The programs funded through CCC are administered by employees of the Farm Service Agency and the Foreign Agricultural Service. The CCC has the authority to borrow up to $30 billion from the U.S. Treasury to carry out its obligations. Net losses from its operations subsequently are restored through the congressional appropriations process. It issues payments in the form of Commodity Certificates.
The Farm Service Agency (FSA) Conservation Partners/Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are shown below. Some are national and some are INTERnational NGOs:
Some of the terms for the contract are found in this link: Appendix to Form NRCS-CPA-1202 Conservation Program Contract for Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) All payments received as part of a Contract are reported to the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
So, be sure you’re familiar with the 16 pages of terms and requirements of the contract, and enter in at your own risk if you choose to disregard our recommendations. Be sure you’re able to deal with the I.R.S and the terms of your negotiated contract! Don’t be lured into their “Program Eligibility Requirements”!
Remember our battle against the Blueway and the Department of Interior? Keep this in mind as the government and NGOs attempt to invoke conservation practices regarding our land, farms, and ranches…
