Government takes family’s land near Area 51


Free Republic

LAS VEGAS – Private land overlooking the secret base at Area 51 has officially been taken from the owners and transferred to the United States Air Force.

Last month, the U.S. Air Force condemned the Groom Mine property when the family who owns it rejected a government buyout they felt was unjust.

The I-Team broke the story of the family’s fight with the government.

The Sheahan family, which until now owned the mine, knew they faced an uphill fight. They also expected the government would probably take the land through eminent domain even though the Sheahan’s owned it since Abe Lincoln was in the White House.

Now — literally with the stroke of a pen — a federal judge has turned the land over to the U.S. Air Force. The only part of the fight left for the Sheahan family now is compensation and what will happen to the equipment, buildings, even human remains, still at the site.

In the remote central Nevada desert, the Groom mine has been an island of private property surrounded by a vast government buffer zone. The buffer zone is patrolled by security troops to prevent people from getting a look at the secret test base at Groom Lake — better known as Area 51.

  1. Reblogged this on Brittius and commented:
    Possible that with all of the toxic burning and toxic dumping, ground water is contaminated. Many legitimate reasons. Groom Lake operations were primarily moved to Dougway, Utah, but some things are probably staying put and R&D, under National Defense, will leave no quarter to landowners.

    • Maybe, or maybe not. NWO, Socialism, government control, whatever you want to call it has gone into over-drive under this Bozo.
